Last week saw the global media giving extraordinary news coverage to a Pastor from California. Harold Camping, founder of the Family Radio Worldwide ministry, confidently asserted that the rapture would occur on Saturday May 21st, at around 6pm. Followers of Camping took to the streets with placards says, “Judgement Day May 21st… the Bible Guarantees it” Some of Camping’s followers spent their life savings to promote his “prophesy”. In the mean time atheist groups were loving the coverage, citing it as proof that Christians really are uneducated loonies. Atheists throughout America help Rapture Parties on Saturday evening, rejoicing that Camping, and the wider church had been so discredited. One enterprising atheist in Florida even seized on the opportunity to help worried pet owners: offering to collect them after they had been raptured and care for these left-behind pets, all for an upfront, non-returnable fee of $80.
However, Camping did not stop there, the judgement of the earth was to continue until October 21st when the earth will finally be destroy.
Since May 21st has come and gone, and there are no reports of Christian’s being taken from earth to be with the Lord, Camping has held up his hands and admitted- he got it wrong! (Well kind of, May 21st marked the spiritual beginnings of Judgement.) And the real rapture has been rescheduled for October 21st, on the same day the earth will be engulfed by a massive ball of fire.
As the world wide media reported on Camping, and the world mocked, what damage does these Pastors do to the body of Christ? Will the world listen to true Prophets of God, when they have correct revelation and prophesy?
Jesus never taught us to focus on rapture, he gave us a mission to fulfil, and that involves entering into the anointing of God, and ruling and reigning with Christ over all the works of the devil. Support Prophet TV and learn to walk in the fullness of the life Christ has for you… instead of looking for the quickest way out, our kids need us to do this!
One thought on “The End is Nigh… Well not Quite”
Well written. A few christians are loonies, but the few make the wider circle look bad.
