The Day of Judgment came and went, and while we were all supposed to have been obliterated, most of us made it to the next day. We did lose a few -not everyone made it – but whether that was the result of Judgment day is another thing.
After the false prediction that the world would end last month by Harold Camping, who runs the Christian network, Family Radio, many may have their doubts about the world ending anytime soon. Camping has a different opinion.
In fact he’s going for strike three; Mr. Camping has made another prediction, Oct. 21, will be the day of destruction; the last day mankind will ever walk this earth. Camping finds several verses from the Bible to support his predictions and reasoning.
The book of Revelation 9: verse 5, “and to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.”
He justifies his false prediction by saying it was “an invisible judgment day,” he claims it was a spiritual experience, on a special broadcast on his radio series, ‘Open Forum.’
“It won’t be spiritual on Oct 21,” Camping said. “The world is going to be destroyed all together, but it will be very quick,”
This was not the first time that Camping mis-calculated the worlds destruction.
Back in 1994 he predicted the world would end on Sept. 6 of that year. According to his show Camping gets his prediction from hidden prophecies in the Bible that he interprets, using a mathematical system he created.
To add to the false alarm, and the anger many people have because they gave up everything. Camping has no intention of giving any money back to those who contributed to his bogus Doomsday movement.
Russia, Turkey, the Philippines, and Taiwan are among the countries; that have the 66 stations Family Radio in the world. Camping raised over $80 million from donations over the past five years, and according to an IRS filing, the non-profit radio station is worth $72 million. Camping might not be that crazy old guy that some may have deemed him to be.
According to Camping’s theory, during the five months after the Rapture (May 21.) The people who didn’t ascend to heaven will go through a series of natural disasters. Does that sound familiar? No, well tell that to the families whose homes and lives have been destroyed by recent tornadoes, flooding, earthquakes and wildfires. Based on a report uploaded in early June by the National Weather Service, there have been 1,475 tornadoes this year.
The day after the false prediction Sunday, May 22, one of the single deadliest tornados in modern history, hit the city of Joplin, Mo. ,it left an estimated 151 people dead, NWS reported.
There are western wildfires, flooding, and severe weather reports from all over the world.
Harold Camping may have his dates mixed up, but he might be on to something. However it should be kept under consideration that the Bible also says in the book of Matthew 24: verses 36-37: “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.”
