Go Ahead, Eat that Burger. God tells us the World ENDS in Three Days!

Harold Camping, Predicting the Date of the Rapture: May 21, 2011Why worry about your blood cholesterol when you’ve got eternity to contemplate?

Last December, F.G. Fitzer alerted us to the “infallible” biblical predictions of Christian leader Harold Camping that Judgment Day would come on May 21, 2011. That’s three days from now:

Blow the trumpet. Warn the people. Ezekiel 33:3 Judgment Day is May 21, 2011.  The Bible Guarantees It!

We learn from the Bible that Holy God plans to rescue about 200 million people (that is about 3% of today’s population). On the first day of the Day of Judgment (May 21, 2011) they will be caught up (raptured) into Heaven because God had great mercy for them. This is why we can be so thankful that God has given us advance notice of Judgment Day. Because God is so merciful, maybe He will have mercy on you.

What if May 21 ends and nothing occurs?
The Biblical evidence is too overwhelming and specific to be wrong. Christ’s people can look with great confidence to this date because God promises His “beloved” He will not come upon them as a thief in the night.
God in His mercy has revealed the vital information needed to know the day. Judgment Day on May 21, 2011 will occur because the bible declares it. Anyone whom God has not saved will arrive at that day with no hope for salvation. God warns simply the “door will be shut.”

Family Radio is no fringe organization. The intolerant and anti-gay messages of its programs are heard across the country — on 36 stations in California alone. Alexa ranks its website among the top 5,000 in the United States. Camping is a major voice in American Christianity.

Family Radio still reserving rights, establishing copyright and asking for donations, 3 days before The RaptureIt’s the darnedest thing, though: just three days before The Rapture, Harold Camping is still accepting cash donations. What’s more, he’s asserting copyright over his works and insisting that all rights are reserved. Why? If Harold Camping really believes what he’s saying, he and his followers will all be playing harps in Heaven in three days. Who needs American legal rights? Paradise is not on American soil.

Another oddity is the Family Radio order page, which posts a special promotion available through May 25, 2011:

Special Orders Available through May 25, 2011 on the Family Radio website

Family Radio asks me to wait 5 days for my order to be processed.  But there are only 3 days left before the Rapture!  I'm calling the Better Business Bureau.

Curses: there’s a 5-day processing period. I DON’T HAVE THAT LONG! Besides, I understand they don’t accept MasterCard up there, and UPS is going to have a devil of a time with the address.

But who am I to question the ways of the Righteous? It must be one of those mysteries of faith I keep hearing about. I will grant God this: his choice of days is very handy. Because May 21 falls on a Saturday, the god-fearing 3% who are raptured up into Heaven probably won’t be driving around in their cars, making the roads clear for the rest of us.

On May 21, 2011 all those people in the world asking for a sign that God is really there will finally have their empirical: the disappearance of 3% of the world’s population — some 200 million people — can’t possibly go without notice. I promise you I’ll be on the lookout.

  • No, no, Jesus is coming. He’s just got to finish one more level on Plants vs. Zombies… Okay, two more levels… Jesus is playing for the zombies. This could take a while.

    The testimony of the true value of the blood of the Lamb is now delivered Rev 12:10-11. The woman of Revelation 12 is now here… God is very precise: A woman delivers the true word John1:1, Rev 12:5, Rev 12:13 who restores Acts 3:21 all things to the world before Christ’s return. This woman exposes the lies of Satan who has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9. This woman creates a new thing in the earth by fulfilling God’s promise to Eve Gen 3:15, Jer 31:22, Isa 14:16. She is meek like unto Moses Num 12:3, she was raised up Acts 3:22 from the Laodicean church that becomes labeled as lukewarm because they refused to hear her Rev 3:14-17. She is bold like Elijah Matt 17:11, Luke 1:17, her witness alone turns the hearts of the fathers to the children Mal 4:5-6 to prepare a people for the Lords return before the great and dreadful day of the Lord Matt 17:3, Luke 9:30. Moses and Elijah are together with the word Matt 17:3 they all three are in this one woman. Those who will not hear Acts 3:23 the true word of God now delivered to the world free of charge, as a witness, at the heel of time from the wilderness Rev 12:6 will not be allowed inside the walls of God’s coming kingdom from heaven Rev 21. This true word delivers the truth that not one child of God will be put in a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5. God created evil Isa 45:7 to teach his children the knowledge of good and evil Rom 8:7, Gen 3:22 so that at their resurrection they become a god Matt 22:29-30, Ps 82:6. Prove all things. You cannot rightly judge this unless you read all that has been written by this woman first Pro 18:13. http://minigoodtale.blogspot.com check out the bruising of Satan and the reason for all of mankind’s sufferings.

    No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

    “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

    We may know the season, but not the hour, anyone that says different is a liar.

    It’s really rather sad how you people of enlightenment mock the faith of others, you better pray that we aren’t right.

    • It’s really rather sad how religious leaders mock and exploit the gullibility of their followers. It’s really sad how many of those leaders use obviously bogus threats of punishment to try to keep people in line. They disagree on matters so much that they clearly can’t all be right and a majority must be wrong. When it comes to their error rate, religious leaders haven’t got a prayer.

      How snobby of us to point that out.
