Though a false teacher has predicted the end of the world for this Saturday, which of course, has been predicted by many heretics throughout the ages since Jesus left this earth 2000 years ago, there will indeed come a time when this present life will end, when everyone will be held accountable before a Holy God. This will happen after death.
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:10)
This is why I encourage all Christians to preach the Gospel—while there’s still time!
Jesus is coming back again though, all Christians agree with that; where we may disagree is the timing of this event: Is it before the Great Tribulation, or after? No matter where you stand on the issue pre-tribbers and post-tribbers may get a kick out of this episode from a show called “Punk’n the Fundie.” (I’m pan-trib by the way. It will all pan out in the end.)
Read this great article by Dr. Albert Mohler:
Harold Camping is now warning the world that the Day of Judgment will begin at about 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, 2011. The 89-year-old founder of Family Radio has made such pronouncements before, most recently in 1994. He now says that he simply miscalculated then, but he is absolutely certain that he has the right calculation now. You have been warned.
Actually, millions of people in America have been warned through Camping’s radio program and by means of the more than 1,200 billboards his ministry has put up across the nation. According to press reports, Family Radio has put up 2,000 billboards in other nations, as well.
Camping is no stranger to controversy, but this one has caught national and international attention. He was wrong before, but this time he is absolutely certain that he is right. As he told New York magazine:
“God has given sooo much information in the Bible about this, and so many proofs, and so many signs, that we know it is absolutely going to happen without any question at all. There’s nothing in the Bible that God has ever prophesied — there’s many things that he prophesied would happen and they always have happened — but there’s nothing in the Bible that holds a candle to the amount of information to this tremendous truth of the end of the world. I would be absolutely in rebellion against God if I thought anything other than it is absolutely going to happen without any question.” Continue reading this article by clicking here.
