2012 in the Bible (KJV, NASB, NIV, ESV...)

(2012-09-24 a work in progress...)
I have found a few Bible verses that seem to reflect historical dates, the most fascinating to me is Deuteronomy 15:17 whose text always seemed strange in its wording...
Deu 15:17 then you shall take an awl and pierce it through his ear into the door, and he shall be your servant forever. Also you shall do likewise to your maidservant.
Why would there be such a strange activity such as a servant nailing his ear to a door to declare he has freely chosen to be a bondservant? This was a Biblical curiosity to me for years until one day I heard Dr. Chuck Missler (radio Bible study host) mention that it was the year 1517 when Martin Luther posted the 95 thesis on the Church door declaring his beliefs and dedicating his life to them and his savior Jesus Christ.

A short time after that I happened to be reading Deuteronomy 15:17 and the very similar events of the verse seemed to reflect the major historical event that happened in 1517. As it turns out, the word "EAR" in the King James translation can also be translated to be similar to posting a notice on a door which would make good sense in the context of the verse. .I'm convinced there cannot be any coincidence to these similarities as the verse sticks out as a strange Bible anomaly which I believe is one of God's ways of highlighting a verse as if to say "Look at me, I'm special!". Of course, this Bible passage was written hundreds of years before the historical event so this seems a perfect example of Bible prophecy lateIy being proved out by history.

It is my experience, that prophecy in the Bible is usually something we can confirm exists after the prophetic event unfolds so we often can only confirm prophecy after it has happened..I try to keep watch of potential date references in the Bible and share them with others

The End of the Age date of 12/21/2012 has many people curious this year as it seems various ancient religious have references in their scripture about special Biblical events happening in 2012. Since I have see these patterns I'm always on the watchout.

#20120 -- Jer 48:39 "How shattered it is! {How} they have wailed! How Moab has turned his back--he is ashamed! So Moab will become a laughingstock and an object of terror to all around him."
#20121 -- Jer 48:40 For thus says the LORD: "Behold, one will fly swiftly like an eagle And spread out his wings against Moab.
#20122 -- Jer 48:41 "Kerioth has been captured And the strongholds have been seized, So the hearts of the mighty men of Moab in that day Will be like the heart of a woman in labor.
#20123 -- Jer 48:42 "Moab will be destroyed from {being} a people Because he has become arrogant toward the LORD.
#20124 -- Jer 48:43 "Terror, pit and snare are {coming} upon you, O inhabitant of Moab," declares the LORD.
#20125 -- Jer 48:44 "The one who flees from the terror Will fall into the pit, And the one who climbs up out of the pit Will be caught in the snare; For I shall bring upon her, {even} upon Moab, The year of their punishment," declares the LORD.
#20126 -- Jer 48:45 "In the shadow of Heshbon The fugitives stand without strength; For a fire has gone forth from Heshbon And a flame from the midst of Sihon, And it has devoured the forehead of Moab And the scalps of the riotous revelers.
#20127 -- Jer 48:46 "Woe to you, Moab! The people of Chemosh have perished; For your sons have been taken away captive And your daughters into captivity.
#20128 -- Jer 48:47 "Yet I will restore the fortunes of Moab In the latter days," declares the LORD. Thus far the judgment on Moab.
#20129 -- Jer 49:1 Concerning the sons of Ammon. Thus says the LORD: "Does Israel have no sons? Or has he no heirs? Why then has Malcam taken possession of Gad And his people settled in its cities?
