I wish I could get Harold Camping alone in a room for just 30 minutes and ask him some questions. In case you've been under a rock, according to Camping and his mathematical calculations.... JESUS is coming back to rapture his church tomorrow at 6 pm pacific time!!!!! Woooohhh!!!.......... **crickets**
Me, being a Jesus loving Christian, a church girl, a PK aka a freak- whatever u wanna call me, I just had to weigh in on all of this madness. Honestly, it makes me LAUGH like crazy. My brother is graduating tomorrow and I have been cracking on him like "Who cares!! Who needs a degree in heaven?!?" My dad being a bishop is an extra easy target "Haha Daddy, God forgot to send YOU the memo?? Why he aint tell you?!?!"
Here's why this whole thing is funny and why even if you are NOT a Christian you shouldn't be concerned about tomorrow. Harold Camping is a professed believer. Well his predictions are in DIRECT OPPOSITION of his own beliefs as a Christian. The bible (the good book that Christians follow) says: NOBODY KNOWS THE DAY OR HOUR; that Jesus will return like a thief in the night (Matthew 24:36-44). The logic behind this: it will prompt us to always live right - not rush and be holy the day of, or the day before (today lol). The word says not even the angels know when ....but you Harold - you know.... Righttttttt.
I really think he is sitting in a room somewhere laughing. Well, he's pretty old so....maybe he's actually serious/crazy. And what's funnier is that this is his second prediction! I would have loved to be a fly on the wall in the church where all the saints gathered for the 1st false alarm. Harold probably said " Umm...saints....it appears that Jesus has....umm, changed his mind, or...maybe he overslept". Honestly if he wasn't a Christian this prediction would make much more sense. But a Christ lover putting up billboards with "SAVE THE DATE: Jesus is returning" on 'em, is just bizarre.
My prediction? Jesus will not return tomorrow. Harold Camping will make a statement about how his calculations were wrong once again and everyone will move on.
The bible speaks of false prophets who will come and deceive many (Matthew 24:3-5) and warns us not to be deceived. Yes Mr. Camping indeed fits this description.
Here's the deal, the only people who could possibly believe in this prediction are people who believe in Jesus. Duh. It's predicting His RETURN. Therefore....if you're a Christian and you are concerned about tomorrow. Please go forward for prayer at church on Sunday. Yeah thats right, I said Sunday. Believe me....it will come
