A Coming Earthquake and Israel Rejects Obama’s Call for Reduction in Borders

May 20, 2011 at 12:54 PM 2 comments

It’s Friday.  Tomorrow is Saturday.  That day normally follows Friday and has for centuries.  Interestingly enough though, this particular upcoming Saturday is going to be different, at least if Harold Camping speaks the truth.

He has opined that on Saturday, May 21st, at 6:00pm, the end will occur.  In fact, his Web site states:  “Judgment Day, May 21, 2011, the Bible guarantees it!” [1]

Yes, the Bible does guarantee judgment day, but it does not guarantee that it will occur on May 21, 2011.  Camping arrived at that date by figuring out exactly when the Flood took place from Genesis 6-9.  He used math from that point onward to conclude that tomorrow, May 21st, is the end of the world.

“In 2 Peter 3:8, which is quoted above, Holy God reminds us that one day is as 1,000 years. Therefore, with the correct understanding that the seven days referred to in Genesis 7:4 can be understood as 7,000 years, we learn that when God told Noah there were seven days to escape worldwide destruction, He was also telling the world there would be exactly 7,000 years (one day is as 1,000 years) to escape the wrath of God that would come when He destroys the world on Judgment Day. Because Holy Infinite God is all-knowing, He knows the end from the beginning. He knew how sinful the world would become.

“Seven thousand years after 4990 B.C. (the year of the Flood) is the year 2011 A.D. (our calendar).

 4990 + 2011 – 1 = 7,000

“[One year must be subtracted in going from an Old Testament B.C. calendar date to a New Testament A.D. calendar date because the calendar does not have a year zero.]”

The above info is taken directly from Camping’s site (see link below).

First of all, Camping is taking the phrase “one day is as a 1,000 years” and allegorizing it to mean something that it does not.  This phrase, used by Peter in 1 Peter 3:8 and there, he is specifically saying that God – who is outside time – does not count days as we count days.  This means that to the Lord, a thousand of our days is like one day to Him.

The immediate context of the Psalm is the frailty of mere mortal man in comparison to God. This verse amplifies the teaching, saying that no matter how long a time interval is from man’s time-bound perspective, it’s like a twinkling of an eye from God’s eternal perspective.” [2]

Note that Peter is not saying that a day is a thousand years.  He is simply comparing and contrasting to make a point about salvation and the fact that He does not want anyone to suffer and die in their sin without having gained eternal life. Peter is actually quoting or referencing Psalm 90:4 here (he states, “remember” to remind his readers that this is from the Old Testament).

So how did Camping get off on this meaning?  Simply because he actually took literally something that is meant only to compare and contrast.  Because he thought he was correct there – that God was giving inside knowledge about how long it would be before the end of  the world – he went with that and came up with May 21st as the date, using math to get there, but based on a wrong assumption.

Also on Camping’s Web site, he responds to the statement of Jesus that no man would know the day or the hour.  He states that Jesus promised the Holy Spirit who would guide us into all knowledge.  Check out Acts 1:7-8.  Unfortunately, for Camping, verse 8 does not negate verse 7.  The statement in verse 8 has nothing to do with  verse 7 directly.  Verse 7 speaks of the fact that no one will know the day or hour of His return.  Verse 8 states that we will receive power for what purpose?  To become His witnesses throughout the world.  What is our job as witnesses; is to spread the gospel of learn the date of His return?

Verse 8 answers that question by telling us that we will become witnesses throughout the world and we are witnessing to the lost.  To this Camping agrees, but then he goes back to Ecclesiastes 8:5 which states, “Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart discerneth [better translation: will know] both time and judgment.”

Camping then equates himself with a wise man who is able to figure out “both time and judgment.”  He also wanders through the book of Daniel pulling out this verse or that, applying it to this time and then further stating that the book that was sealed (Daniel 12:4, 9) has now been open to those who are truly God’s children and who trust Him implicitly.

Camping then takes us to Revelation five, which is really the start of the Tribulation period (hasn’t happened yet), but like many who allegorize God’s Word, states that the book in Revelation 5:1-9 has now been opened.  Even if that was true, that book has nothing to do with us knowing anything more.  It is simply showing the order of events that will occur in heaven when God begins the Tribulation period – again, which has not yet started.

Camping also refers to Revelation 16:18 and says that the earthquake mentioned there will happen on Saturday at 6:00pm.  I’m guessing that the 6:00pm he’s referring to is PST.  So, as we can see, Camping is busy allegorizing Scripture and when people do that, they can make it say anything they want it to say.

There is no indication that tomorrow will experience an earthquake.  At the same time, there have been earthquakes happening around the world constantly for the past few years.  Just check the United States Geological Web site to see all of the earthquakes that have been happening around the world.

Camping is a loon.  If a large earthquake happens tomorrow that will be felt around the world, it will do so by luck of the draw.  It’s too bad people listen to Camping because it just adds to his own view of his credibility.

Regarding Israel and Mr. Obama’s insistence that they return to pre-1967 borders, I’m happy to hear that they are not going to be bullied by Mr. Obama.  Mr. Netanyahu said, “The Israeli leader said he would make some concessions but Israel would not go back to the lines from decades earlier because they are “indefensible.”[3]

Glad to hear it.  Apparently, Mr. Obama expected Mr. Netanyahu to ask “how high?” when Mr. Obama said “jump.”  Glad to hear Netanyahu is not caving into the politics of Washington.

Netanyahu is of course, correct, that if they went back to pre-1967 borders, their country would be only 12 miles wide.  How can a country that small be defended against, especially when surrounded by countries hostile to their very existence?

After the meeting, Netanyahu stated, “We value your efforts to advance the peace process,” Netanyahu said after the meeting. “Israel wants peace, I want peace. … We want a peace that will endure. … For there to be peace, Palestinians cannot expect Israel to go back to the 1967 lines.

“We can’t go back to the lines. … I discussed this with the president.”[4]

It seems that poor Mr. Obama was frustrated.  Oh well.  Maybe he should learn to live with it because it’s likely going to become the norm in his future!  I specifically prayed that God would frustrate Mr. Obama’s plans and it appears he has done that.  I prayed that God would give Netanyahu the strength to say “no” and I prayed that since Mr. Obama has dared to stand against God’s Land and God’s people, God would frustrate, confuse, and confound Obama’s plans, which He has done.

I have also been praying that God overrules Mr. Obama and ultimately ruins his chances for a second term as praying.  God can do whatever He pleases, including telling me “no,” but I’ve asked and will leave it with God to do what He wants to do.  I trust that the Lord will accomplish His purposes and they will glorify Him whether anyone likes it or not.
