If Harold Camping was trying to predict that the end of Muammar Gaddafi would come before 21st October he would have hit the nail on the head. Just one day before that date Gaddafi breathed his last. But predicting the end of the world has been a feat that has taken its toll and worn out the frail Doom’s day prophet. Not only has his health failed along the way, his voice seems to be closing down as well. What is it this time Harold? Are we surely confident that you have peeked over the shoulder of the Most High and glanced at the most forbidden calendar?
OAKLAND — This time, Harold Camping sounds like a man who has suffered the whisper of self-doubt.
The Oakland minister’s latest prediction of the end of the world – which he’s set for Friday – is couched among words like “probably” and “maybe,” a far cry from the carved-in-stone certitude he projected onto his infamous May 21 forecast.
“I do believe we’re getting very near the very end,” Camping, 90, said during a podcast recorded earlier this month and posted on his Family Radio website. “Oct. 21, that’s coming very shortly, that looks like it will be, at this point, it will be the final end of everything.”
After his last apocalyptic prediction failed to materialize, Camping said he was “flabbergasted” and was reconsidering his calculations.
“We’ve learned that there’s a lot of things we didn’t have quite right,” he acknowledged during the podcast. …Read more!
For lack of any thing to do I some how gave Harold Camping two minutes of my day. Now I need them back. Yup, he is back and worse than ever. This time….
Harold Camping, the Christian broadcaster who boldly announced that the world would end on May 21, only to later say that he was “flabbergasted” when the rapture did not occur, is now telling everyone to get ready for the real rapture, which is set to occur on Oct. 21 – probably. …Read More!
In the Old Testament when a prophet fore told an event, he had to be sure that his God would make good on his prophesy. If he lied he would be stoned -to death. When he boldly spoke the words, “Thus sayeth the Lord…” every one listened with bated breath for the very words of God to proceed hence forth. Enter Harold Camping as the 21st century herald of God’s latest revelation outside of scripture. Apparently God was deciding to go against what the bible says (in that no body knows the day or the hour of Christ’s second coming apart from the Father in Heaven) by revealing sacred numerals to one special man in California that 21st of May 2011 is the D-day. (Yes, atleast it’s three days after my birthday :-)). Here are some thoughts that traversed my mind too…
Can you imagine what it will be like for Campingites around the world …Listening to the news, waiting to hear about earthquakes at 6pm all around the world? Maybe saying goodbye to loved ones? Giving away personal items, all the time, wondering….
I listened to two NPR reports on Camping’s prophecy today, and it was truly disheartening to listen to these folks. One lady had been about to enroll in medical college, but did not, so that she could warn people about “Judgment Day.” Another man had left wife and children behind, as they did not “believe.” A couple, the woman expecting their second child in June, were interviewed. They had given up everything, and had just enough money to make it till May 21. After that…well, they will be destitute. The New York Post just reported on a man who squandered his $140,000 life’s savings to buy advertisements in the New York area promoting the May 21 prophecy. Can you imagine the chuckles of all those going to work on Monday the 23rd as they pass those advertisements? Thanks, Mr. Camping.
Well, are you ready? Even those living in a pretty sheltered world are starting to …Well There’s More
