Well, here we go again. The date-setters and/or false-prophets are at it again.
Let me just say this...I don't know when Jesus is coming back, but I can say for sure I know when he's NOT coming back: May 21, 2011. Why do I say that? Because the bible tells us plainly "no man knows the day nor the hour" (Matt 25:13, Mk 13:32.).Yet we have a group today that is claiming exactly that -- that they know the day of the Lord's return, which they say will be May 21, 2011.
Not surprisingly, this group is affiliated with Family Radio, which is headed by Harold Camping. To call Harold Camping a false teacher would be to be an understatement. And yes, he's predicted dates of the Lord's coming before, and those dates have proven false. Why this man has even a shred of credibility, and still has people following him in his "ministry", is beyond me.
I wont even bother to get into the many false teachings of Harold Camping here. Being Pentecostal myself, I find his doctrine repugnant for not only being anti-Pentecostal and anti- speaking-in-tongues, but for spreading a variety of other bizarre and unbiblical doctrines, too many for me to even get into here.
Any of you who are curious can do a simple Google search, where they can find links such as these below:
Truly this man is a wolf in sheep's clothing, and I feel bad for all those deceived people following him. After all, the Lord makes it clear that if the blind lead the blind, they will all fall into the same ditch (Matt 15:13-14).
Who knows? Maybe I'll give Family Radio a call on May 22, 2011, and see what they have to say for themselves after this, their latest false prophecy/prediction, fails again.
The Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionSave the date: Jesus is coming on May 21, 2011.
At least, that's according to organizers of a billboard campaign slated to hit metro Atlanta next week. Allison Warden of Raleigh, N.C.-based WeCanKnow.com said the Christian Web site plans to place 50 billboards in the metro area proclaiming the rapture and Jesus' imminent return, based on analysis of Scripture and biblical genealogy.
"The Bible teaches that Christ is returning on May 21 and we want to encourage people to go to Scripture and investigate for themselves," said Warden, who insists the Christimas-timed campaign is not a gimmick. "All information in the Bible points to this date. God is going to be saving people right up until the last moment."
The billboards, which are up already in places like Nashville, Detroit and Omaha, Neb., show three wise men on camels and the star of Bethlehem with the message, "He is coming again."
