Everybody ready?

May 14, 2011

One week to the Rapture, as calculated by Harold Camping.

I first heard of Camping back when he was predicting that Christ would return in September 1994. But hey, that was in another millennium. He’s redone the math, and May 21 is his final answer.

If you wake up on the 22nd disappointed at being left behind, you might want to try a more rational sort of religion. As it happens, a couple of friends of mine are being ordained to the Unitarian Universalist ministry on that day; give UU a try!

Or, to take your mind off it all, you can spend the day listening to the Ring of the Nibelung, whose composer’s birthday also happens to be the 22nd.

Interestingly, when I looked up Camping on Wikipedia just now I found that he is an annihilationist. Meaning no eternal hellfire for anybody, in his view; five months after the Rapture all the rest of us – the whole universe as we know it – will simply cease to exist. So if we wake up a week from tomorrow and find that the Rapture has happened, we really have nothing to worry about! We can sit back and enjoy the blissful absence of the fundamentalists, frolic to our hearts’ content until October, and then nothing! (FWIW, the Jehovah’s Witnesses also believe in annihilation of unbelievers and sinners, rather than ongoing fire and brimstone.)

I predict that in a few days I’ll have something to say in a more serious vein concerning the whole heaven/hell business. Universalism has also been in the air lately, and my own UU minister will be preaching on Rob Bell tomorrow…

    Several Bible prophecies are now fulfilled. The woman of Revelation 12 is now here… God is very precise: A woman delivers the true word John1:1, Rev 12:5, Rev 12:13 who restores Acts 3:21 all things to the world before Christ’s return. This woman exposes the lies of Satan who has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9. This woman creates a new thing in the earth by fulfilling God’s promise to Eve Gen 3:15, Jer 31:22, Isa 14:16. She is meek like unto Moses Num 12:3, she was raised up Acts 3:22 from the Laodicean church that becomes lukewarm because they refused to hear her Rev 3:14-17. She is also bold like Elijah Matt 17:11, her witness alone turns the hearts of the fathers to the children Mal 4:5-6 to prepare a people for the Lords return before the great and dreadful day of the Lord Matt 17:3, Luke 9:30. Moses and Elijah are together with the word Matt 17:3 they all three are in this one woman. Those who will not hear Acts 3:23 the true word of God now delivered to the world free of charge, as a witness, at the heel of time from the wilderness Rev 12:6 will not be allowed inside the walls of God’s coming kingdom from heaven Rev 21. This true word turns the hearts of the fathers to the children of God by giving the truth that not one child of God will be put in a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5. God created evil Isa 45:7 to teach his children the knowledge of good and evil Rom 8:7, Gen 3:22 so that at their resurrection they become a god Matt 22:29-30, Ps 82:6. Prove all things. Be a workman that needeth not to be ashamed. You cannot rightly judge this unless you read all that has been written by this woman first Pro 18:13 http://minigoodtale.wordpress.com check out the bruising of Satan, the true testimony of the blood of the lamb is delivered.

      Interesting.
      Thank you for this.
      I am always willing to look at novel ways of stringing together Bible verses to try to make sense of them all together. Yours certainly seems to have some positive features…
