Well, ya hey dere Vern, It wasn’t the End of the World as we know it on Saturday where was that Jesus Guy of yours again?


Preacher Harold Camping and Family Radio.com missed their prediction on the apocalypse on Saturday, May 21, 2011.

I gave the Preacher a little room for error so I didn’t post this until Monday.

Preacher Harold Camping, man with Egg on his Face today.

According to the Christian broadcaster, Judgment Day was supposed to bring a massive earthquake, powerful enough to throw open graves, followed by a slow death for all non-believers over the next five months across the globe. He went on to say only 200 million people will be saved and those left behind will die in earthquakes, plagues, and other calamities until Earth is consumed by a fireball on October 21.

May 21 came and went;  no earthquakes, plaques or calamities and I wouldn’t bet the bank that the fireball is coming on October 21 either.

So Preacher I looked up on the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod site this morning and here is the biblical version of events of the Second Coming of Jesus.

 From LCMS.org:

 The Bible teaches that the following events will take place when Jesus returns

 1.      Christ will come visibly and all people will see Him

(Acts 1:11; Matt.24:27, 30; Luke 17:22-24; 21:27, 35; Mark 13:24-

26; 14:62; Rev.1:7).

2. Christ will come in glory surrounded by His angels

(Matt.13:39-43, 49; 16:27; 24:30-31; 25:31; 2 Thess.1:7; Rev.19:11-

14; Titus 2:13; Jude 14, 21; 1 Pet.4:13; Zech.14:3).

 3. When Christ returns, a bodily resurrection of all the dead will take place. Believers will be raised to salvation and unbelievers to damnation

(John 5:27-29; 6:39-40, 44, 54; Rev. 20:11-15; 1 Cor. 15:12-57; Dan.12:1-2).

 All believers, both the dead and the living, will be “caught up” to “meet the

Lord in the air”

(1 Thess.4:13-17).

 Death will be destroyed

(1 Cor.15:26, 54-57; Rev.20:14).

 4. When Christ returns, He will judge all people, both the living and the dead

(Matt. 25:31-46; John 5:27; Acts 10:42; 17:31; Rom.2:16; 2 Tim.4:1, 8; Jude 14-15; Rev.20:11-15).

 Believers will receive eternal salvation and unbeliever’s eternal damnation

(Matt. 25:31-46; 1 Pet. 1:4-5, 7; 5:4; 1 John 3:2;  Heb.9:28; 2 Cor.5:10; 2 Thess.1:6-10).

 Satan and Antichrist will be destroyed

(2 Thess.2:8; Rev.12:10-11).

 5. When Christ returns, a “new heavens and a new earth” will be created

(2 Pet. 3:10-13).

Nowhere, however, do the Scriptures teach that at His return Christ will establish a this-worldly, political kingdom or “millennium.”

 First of all Preacher what translation of the Bible did you use to base your prediction on NIV, King James, ESV

Did you at least read the “Left Behind” Series as you were doing your research?

Second God is NOT a Math Equation and never will be.

And as I said in my original post:

Revelation 16:15 (NIV) “Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

The doomsday message has been sent far and wide via broadcasts and web sites by Camping, an 89-year-old retired civil engineer who has built a multi-million dollar nonprofit ministry based on his apocalyptic prediction.

Please people give your time, energies and money to a church that is biblically sound.  Not a church that espouses drivel. 

Jesus Christ, Savior, Father, Prince of Peace, Died for us all. Not a Math Equation.
