May 21st 2011 – On Harold Camping’s ‘Rapture and End of the World’ Date Setting

Well, the day of May 21st 2011 has now passed through all the world’s time zones. As I write, it is 20.47 pm. in Australia, 4.47 am. in Mr. Camping’s native Colorado and 11.47 am. in my native Ireland.

The Bible illustrates how people will be engaged in all sorts of activities when the Lord returns to take His own. In some parts of the world it will be day, while in others it will be night, but the Great Question which must be put to every precious soul for whom Jesus died is this: “Spiritually speaking, will your heart be right with the Lord upon His return?”

If we have not made our peace with God, by repenting and putting our trust in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, then our destiny will horrifically be hell. From scriptures we learn that Jesus spoke more about hell than heaven, because (unlike the theology which Mr. Camping and others cling to) God’s Word maintains that He is “not willing that any should perish…” (2 Peter 3v9) For this reason Jesus put forth many warnings about this horrific place.

Even amongst Christians there is much speculation and dispute about the nature of the Lord’s return, but are these words not of far more importance…? “Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.” (2Peter 3v14)

As for those who choose to set dates, how can they ignore the many references to the fact that we don’t (and cannot) know when the Lord’s return will be? Here is just one of them…

Jesus said in Matthew 25v13: “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”

Let those of us who have an assurance of salvation in our hearts pray for the followers of this cult and for Mr. Harold Camping too; that they would turn to the Lord Jesus Christ who loved them and gave Himself for them.

    Thanks Judy,

    The latest news, apparently, is that Mr. Camping says “it’s really October,” admitting that he “got it wrong.”
    I just pray that more people don’t commit suicide over this and that they would come to a knowledge of the truth.

    Elizabeth.
