The sky has fallen dark once again . . .
the clock will soon be gonging 11:00 p.m.
Today, May 21, 2011 has been an interesting day.
A day full of rumors . . .
rumors of the end of the world as we know it . . .
rumors of the Rapture.
An old man, named Harold Camping claimed to have "figured" out the date and time of the Second Coming of Christ.
People actually took this guy seriously . . .
regardless of what the Scriptures tell us.
Millions of dollars were spent on advertising . . .
more than 100 million dollars across the globe.
Seriously . . . the money Camping spent on his "prediction" could have fed hungry children around the world.
The Bible is very clear about the Second Coming of Christ . . .
Matthew 24:36-44 (New International Version)
The Day and Hour Unknown
36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[a]but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
I guess Harold Camping missed that passage in Scripture.
