TODAY is JUDGMENT DAY

Here it is!  Judgment Day!  Well, according to false prophet Harold Camping it is today anyway.  Since "no man knows the hour" (Mark 13:32) there is NO WAY that Harold Camping knows!   And he claims to know, with certainty, that it will be TODAY at 3pm.  3pm WHERE?  As of the writing of this article it's already 8:27pm in Jerusalem - so if he was basing the time on the hour of Jesus' death - that hour has already passed.  So here we are Mr. Camping, Saturday, May 21, 2011 - and we're waiting.  Actually, those of us who KNOW their Scriptures KNOW Camping is wrong today just as he was wrong in September of 1994 when he predicted with 99.9% certainty that the same thing would happen back then.  I have just as much certainty that today he is just as wrong,  I'll reserve that .1% for the possibility that it IS today - afterall, I cannot have 100% certainty that Camping accidentally got this one right!  (grin)  

I hope you didn't quit your job or sell your assets, come Sunday - in whatever timezone - you might find you need these things!  

Addendum at 2:11 - Judgment Day:
From Harold Camping's site:
Didn't Harold Camping say that the world would end in 1994?
In 1992 Mr. Camping wrote a book entitled 1994? In that book Mr. Camping highlighted the abundant evidence pointing to 1994 as a probable year of Christ's return. Given the abundance of information pointing 1994 and the urgency of time, the book 1994? was written. Mr. Camping felt as a teacher, he must share the Biblical information he had found and warn the world.
Important subsequent biblical information was not yet known, so this book was incomplete. Mr. Camping warned there may be something he overlooked therefore the question mark was prominently placed on the title.
Mr. Camping wrote on pages 494 and 495 of the book 1994? he believed 2011 was the most probable year of Christ's second coming. Given the fact 2011 is the 7000 year anniversary of the flood, but he misunderstood Jesus' teaching in Matthew 24 verse 22 "except those days should be shortened"
At the time Mr. Camping concluded the period of "great tribulation" would be shortened from twenty three years, as the Bible teaches, to 2300 evening mornings or six and one third years. .
Mr. Camping wrote in 1994?:
"God appears to be declaring that this final tribulation period should be a certain length of time. If it were that length of time, it seems it would fit perfectly with God's plan of 7000 years. Judgment Day would be 2011 A.D.
But for the sake of the elect those day will be shortened."
So, apparently even in his book 1994? - he pointed to 2011.  Well, it's now after 2pm, MST, that leaves us with less than an hour before Camping's predicted Judgment Day.  As I said before, I am quite confident this day will continue as a "regular day"

Also from Camping's site:
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."
But Scripture says He WILL come as a thief in the night!  1 Thessalonians 5:2 specifically states: "For yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall so come, as a thief in the night."  It goes on to say that we should not be sleeping - but be awake so on that night we are not caught unprepared - but the Lord's coming most definitely will be "as a thief in the night."  Camping is just plain wrong again.

I think I'll take the dog for a walk...

  1. I have a question for Harold Camping: Did you sell all your possesions before 05/21/11 or was that just for the dumb sheep? Well it's 6 o' clock somewhere! LOL!

  3. Well, last I heard it was supposed to be 6pm EST - which makes it 3pm where *I* am! :-) I'm planning on making a trip to the dump to drop off some clippings from trees... do I still do it? (grin)

  4. For a portion of the world it's already Sunday, May 22... I guess all those folks didn't make the rapture?

  5. It's the day after "Judgment Day" - and still no major, worldwide earthquake to report. The birds are singing... it's Sunday morning, time to get ready to go to Mass.

    Its May 22. I just woke up in Israel. The world has not come to an end the mythical Rapture did not happen. Birds are singing, fish are jumping and I'm going to Mass. Jesus will come again when the Father is ready.

    And off I go to Mass now as well.

  7. Well, it's now MONDAY, two days past "Judgment Day" and nothing happened... at least nothing Harold Camping predicted, no GUARANTEED would happen!

    So where's Harold Camping? Well, according to gawker.com he did make a brief appearance from his California home and said:

    "I'm looking for answers," Camping said, adding that meant frequent prayer and consultations with friends.

    "But now I have nothing else to say," he said, closing the door to his home. "I'll be back to work Monday and will say more then."


    One thing we can learn from this, beyond how to recognize a false prophet, is how fallible the concept of sola scriptura is! Mr. Camping based his predictions ON SCRIPTURE and gave us "infallible assurance" that what he was predicting was true.
