One Year Until the End of the World

The subject of this post is the message I found in my inbox earlier today. The message reminded me that Harold Camping has, based on complex series of calculations, predicted judgment day to be May 21, 2011. I have already attempted to show a number of problems in Mr. Camping's theology, and rather than rehash those problems, I'll just provide links to the relevant posts below:

1) "Lucifer" and Angels' Names

2) More not Less Church as the Day of the Lord Approaches

3) ISI Discussion Regarding Harold Camping

4) Four Hundred Thirty Years Series
a) Camping Jenga
b) How Then Four Hundred, Thirty Years?
c) From Seventy to More then a Million?
d) 430 Years from the Promise - A Response to Fred Butler

5) Camping and the Atonement

6) Surprising Wisdom from Harold Camping

I have no idea how many of Harold Camping's listeners on the Family Radio network read this blog, or whether they will hear and listen to me before May 22, 2010.

You know TF, there is something that always amazes me when getting into this topic. No one ever brings up all the people that the end of the world and judgment has come to, even while I am writing this post! I die daily, Paul wrote.

What about them?

What about the average 50,000 people who will die by a car accident this year before January 1 of 2011 who certainly will face judgment as their world comes abruptly to an end? Or the multitude of people who die of sickness or disease from around the world this week or month or before the end of the year?

This subject is a ploy of wolves, in my opinion, to get trapped even more the unsuspecting and unstable who are caught in the trap of the fear of dying or of death itself!

My mentoring Pastor always reminded us that for a Truly Born Again Elect Saint of God, today is as good a day to die as it is to serve Him! And for every one of God's Saints who die, we do not die alone. :)

Heb 11:35 Women received back their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life.
Heb 11:36 Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment.
Heb 11:37 They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the sword. They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated--
Heb 11:38 of whom the world was not worthy--wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
Heb 11:39 And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised,
Heb 11:40 since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.

TurretinFan,

Doesn't Camping speak about the rapture taking place sometime before the 2011 date? I don't remember where that is, but I think I recall him stating some such. Do you remember any of that?

Blessings,

PA

Unless he's recently changed his position, he holds that the rapture will take place on judgment day.

Thanks for the love, bro.
Once again...

LOL Mr. Butler! Do I still owe you a response on the 430 year issue?

I think we pretty much beat that horse corpse into a pulp.

I want to say that how come he is the only one that in his words "God" showed him when the rapture will take place. How come people like Jack Van Impe, John Hagee, Jesse Duplantis, Kenneth Copeland, or any other modern day preacher including my dad that was a preacher for over 38 years and preached the bible for what it says, not some time table that man come up with. The Bible says clearly, NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY, NOT THE SON, NOR THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN, so if that be the case is he GOD's Twin Brother?
