It’s pretty tragic when publicly elected officials begin an assualt on the U.S. Constitution. Such seems to be the case in Dearborn, MI where both Mayor O’Reilly and Chief of Police Haddad have made their own laws concerning the issue of freedom of speech and expression.
So what’s the solution to the Middle East mayhem? Well, frankly, I don’t think there is a man-made solution to the violence. But, if there is one, it needs to begin with truth. Pretending will only lead to more chaos. Treating a 5,000-year-old birthright backed by overwhelming historical and archaeological evidence equally with illegitimate claims, wishes and wants gives diplomacy and peacekeeping a bad name.
God does not love Jews more than anyone else on this planet. He loves to bring honor and glory to His Name and rightly so. Because of this, His plan for Israel – the Land and the nation – will continue to unfold. The gates of hell will not stand against it and neither will nations or people.
Other than call on Camping to silence himself and repent, I’m not sure what else can be done. Maybe nothing. But the world needs to know that authentic Christians do not stand with this man. Maybe…just maybe, people will hear us and start to believe the truth about Harold Camping; that he is a false prophet who should not be given any attention!
I’m pleased to say that the first draft of my next book, Why Should We Believe Them is complete. Now for the rewrites and then off to the editor!
After studying these books especially The Urantia Book and A Course in Miracles, it is absolutely fascinating what people will believe when it allegedly comes from an “ascended master,” or “alien”!
Here is the updated cover:
The first part of this began in 1948 when God began re-gathering Jewish people back to the Land. Why did He do that? Because it was the first step in Him ultimately returning glory and honor to His holy Name.
You people who are opposed to Israel had better humble yourselves and repent because you are sinning by standing opposed to God and His will. If you are unable to see that, it is because you have never asked Him to open your eyes to the truth. Please do so now.
Salvation: Do NOT leave this life without it!
Just today we learned that Harold Camping wants to go O-for-3 and is now saying that the end will come on October 21st. He was apparently five months early in his prediction.
While I cannot endorse Herman Cain (because I am a non-profit), I CAN ask that you take the time to study him. Do some research. What are his viewpoints? Where does he want to take this country? What are his business credentials? Do you think he has what it takes to make a good run and possibly become the next president of the United States?
Harold Camping came to the door and told news reporters that he was absolutely “flabbergasted” that the Rapture did not occur as he predicted it would. The article then went onto say that though Camping admitted it had been a rough weekend, it was likely far more rough for the people who were taken in by the 89-year-old’s ridiculous predictions.
There is at least one voice of reason in all of this and he is apparently on Camping’s board. He stated, “I don’t know where we went wrong other than that we obviously don’t understand the Scriptures in the way that we should.” Evans says he does not want Family Radio to recalculate and announce a new date for Judgment Day, and that he hopes the organization will repay people who gave money to the cause.”
Wow, great idea! Maybe that would be the beginning of healing for too many people who – without biblical discernment – emptied out their bank and retirement accounts and gave the contents to some guy who has no clue what he is talking about!
If ONLY people would learn from this stupidity. The Bible is clear. Harold Camping is not. The best thing that could happen now is for Camping to have a press conference in which he admits he made a mistake, deeply regrets the trauma he has caused, and will immediately begin to refund money back to those who gave what they had so he could spread his erroneous message. If Camping does this, then lemons might start to turn into lemonade. The world may actually see Christianity at work.
It is clear that people WANT the Bible fulfilled. They want to see God’s promises come to fruition, but no amount of wishing it so will make them happen any sooner than God’s foreordained will. Everything has been planned in the eternal council of Godhead BEFORE the foundations of the earth – everything. Nothing was left up to chance.
The best things Christians can do now is to stop predicting and continue working. It is not wrong to watch and pray as long as we continue to work at the same time. Looking for Jesus is fine. Predicting when He is coming back is wrong and asinine.
I do not sit here thinking about when I’m going to die though I am cognizant of the fact that each day COULD be my last. I think about what I’m supposed to be doing for God TODAY. What is His plan for me NOW?
Harold Camping needs to stick to the basics and forget about trying to use any combination of anything to determine when the Lord is going to return.
He has unfortunately, proven himself to be a false prophet TWICE. Will this be the turning point for him? One can only hope.
