Prepare: End of the World Date Set - May 21, 2011

A group out of Oakland, California has announced that the world will come to an end on May 21, 2011. They base their announcement upon mathematical computations gleaned from several locations in the Bible which resulted in this date.

They have a website - Family Radio - which gives more information and the formula they used based upon scripture.

I don't want to pass judgement on these people. I have heard two interviews in the same number of days with their spokesperson on the radio. He seems very rational and a reasonable fellow. None of that "fire and brimstone" stuff, rather, he answered questions calmly and based upon his beliefs.

You can't prepare for this sort of thing.

According to the Rapture concept, if you are right with God, you will be swept up from earth to Heaven. There is no reason to prepare for that type of event as you will need none of your preps.

If you are not right with God, there will be a period of tribulation which preps may help, but the world will be so awful, it may not matter.

So the short of the long is, if you want to prepare for this end of the world scenario, get right with God right away.

My own perspective on the end of the world, Bible style, is based upon two things. First, I can't find in the Bible where it says the world will end on Tuesday. Rather, it points to signs and reminds readers, "Get right with God now and live each second as if Jesus were about to return".

Second, a pastor I knew was once asked what he thought about Rapture theology. His response was similar and basically said, "I can't worry about the actual day and time or how it exactly will happen. All I can worry about is preparing my own soul and helping save as many others as possible. That is what Jesus is going to ask me about when I meet Him".

I don't want to start a big theological fracas over this. Read this group's link and judge for yourself. Same with your religious beliefs; I don't want an argument with you.

Either this happens on May 21 and if so, I will see you on the other side. Or the date is wrong and look for another fine post here on May 22. Take care,

I'm not worried. If you don't believe in the superstition then you certainly cannot be hurt by the numbers in the book of superstition.

Ugg. If people would actually READ their Bible, they would know date setting is wrong/prohibited. Not to mention the verse that says only God the father knows when, none else.

Might be interesting to see what this gent says when the 21st comes and goes and they're still here. I have read on some other sites he's predicted this before and been wrong.
Hope no one is dumb enough to quit their jobs on his say so.

My biggest preocupation that people who believe on this date will "create" the event.

You will see massive suicide and a lot of lotting and chaos.

Be Ready.

If you read the Bible yourself, not what little the Church tells you, it states the elect will know 'time and judgement', those in ALL Churchs, ALL are following strayed doctrines, will not. The Bible gives 'pictures' of what will be. Moses warned of total destruction, Jonah warned of destruction, etc. Always there was a warning of the exact day. Date setting is commanded to be executed by the 'watchers'. At least put yourself in an environment of being saved and leave your local congregation. Beg for Mercy.
