2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect by Bob Thiel
2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect: A Revolutionary Spiritual and Physical Survival Guide for 2012-2020 is a groundbreaking investigative work that goes beyond way beyond the usual doomsday flaming meteor and tidal wave scenarios. Award-winning researcher and end time prophecy expert, Dr. Bob Thiel, disseminates and later compares ancient prophecies of the world’s 11 major religions, explains which prophecies are not likely to occur and describes which world changing events are inevitable. Predictions in 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect are happening right now.

featured section imageREVIEW:This was overwhelming!! So many religion beliefs and end of the world theories.  The book has a lot of information. If you are not a history or religious buff I don't know it you will get through the entire book.
Inside the book are theories, writings, predictions, and interpretations from various sources:  The I Ching, Islamic Interpretations, Catholic prophecies, the Hindu predictions, Maya Byzantine prophecies, and more. The author Bob Thiel also uses the Holy Bible.

The authors research into ancient prophecies led him to the findings that most religious beliefs expects many of the same End of Time events to occur. A few are: economic concerns, solar issues, turmoil, and the rise of a militaristic world leader who will be apposed by 'the secret sect'.

The book included the prediction of the Mayan Calendar, Which financial prophecies will come to pass and when, why the English speaking nations will be invaded sometime after 2012 and the false Age of Truth and the True Age of Peace. Who are the Secret Sects ? What does the The Holy Bible says all about any of this.

Review: Does it all sound a bit alarming? Yes, perhaps.  What caught my interest the most is the interpretation of Daniel and Revelation of the Holy Bible. I'm very knowledgeable about those two chapters of the Bible. Those two chapters reveal all one needs to know to help you understand the end of time. Most Christians have not studied the two which goes hand in hand. They are so powerful! I will place those two chapters up against anything any one else writes when it comes to discussing the world and its End Times. All one has to do is study our World History and use those chapters, It reveals quite a bit.

Another interesting section in the book is the "Secret Sect".  This is a religious group of people that has full knowledge of what the world will be going through and will begin to inform others of such events.  They will also have to flee from prosecution. The author seems to believe that the 'secret sect' are Nazarene's from Philadelphia or should I write the author believe the Nazarene of Philly are the remnant of the true church. This does not mean  all faith believing Christians will come from Philly but the 'secret sect' originated from there.  Yes, the bible speaks of a peculiar people that keeps his commandments but the novel did not contain enough information that led me to believe as the author wrote.. I don't know what religion belief will be the true faith I just hope to remain true to the end and will not have any problem making a change to follow truth.

The author mentions 'Satan' in the book however I don't recall his name being connected to sections that shows readers the direct involvement Satan has over the world turmoil. People must begin to understand his major role behind all the turmoil in our world today. See, that an issue with predictions that I have, they only seem to go so far and not to the root . The author states quite a few times about a militaristic power that will take over and lose the battle in the end. The author does not make mention that this power is also a religious/spiritual one. 

 In my opinion this book will help open eyes for those that never thought about such events.  This book will spark your interest in wanting to learn more.  The author covered some good topics. I wished the subject of identifying who is 666 been more direct.  It is good to know the world is not ending in 2012. I don't know why people keep trying to predict this, This is not knowledge anyone will GET!! God spoke that, so I believe.

The book held my interest. I do not agree with everything that is predicted, but the author is darn close to what my studies and lessons have concluded. My personal opinion is not only should one know what is going to happen but WHY is it all happening.  Composing all the predictions and theories and writings from religious leaders and etc. took many hours, patience and studying. I respectively applaud the author for this. 
If you are wondering about the 'rapture'. 666, The New World Order, false prophets, and etc. 
this book will help put some perspective in order. 

Interview question
What would you like readers to take away from your book?

We live in a difficult time that many are confused by.  Our time could be considered a "time of transition" as the Hopi Indians indicated or more precisely the "beginning of sorrows" that Jesus spoke of.

I believe that 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect helps demonstrate that there is a "method to all the madness" in the world today and that after all the problems, that peace and love will prevail.

However, while there will be ups and downs, the situation will get quite bad before it gets quite good.

While 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect does explain 2012, its focus is what will happen after this year is over.  By correctly explaining what will and will not happen in 2012, it is hoped that the reader will realize that the other predictions it contains will also happen as well.  This highly documented book tries to show which Mayan, Islamic, and other predictions do and do not agree with biblically-based ones, so that the reader will understand how world events are expected to play out.  Events that will affect their lives and those of their families.

Before writing 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect I was better known for denouncing false prophets than writing about future events. And yes, it is easier to find faults in others than to correctly write about what will happen. As it has turned out, world events have already aligned with at least 20 predictions in 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.
                                                                                                                                     People who are interested in what will happen, may happen, and will not happen in the future will want to get a copy of 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect. 

World events continue to align with properly understood prophecy and so far 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect's track record along that line is better than all known 2012 books.

It is a book for those who have hope and want to have hope, but who also wonder what will happen before the peaceful hope for the future really comes to pass.  I believe that 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect helps explain the truth about all of that despite my own limitations.

  1. I used to really be into this kind of stuff. Conspiracy theories, biblical prophecies, etc. Until I started scaring the hell out of myself reading and researching this stuff. I had to stop, what will be will be.

    1. I'm on the floor, laughing so hard. You are right what will be will be, however its nothing like knowing. Or is it?.
