THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT?

If you’re reading this it means the predictions from a small American religious sect’s leader Harold Camping have proven once again to be inaccurate. There have been billboards on major highways around the country that announce, “The Bible Guarantees It.”

Camping a former civil engineer based in California has made the claim that May 21, 2011 will be when the world will face “Judgement Day” signaled by a “worldwide earthquake” that will begin in each time zone around the world at 6 PM incasing the world in hellish destruction then five months later the end of the world by which God destroys the planet in October 2011.

The idea of the end of the world has been the topic of much discussion for over 2,000 years. Ever since Jesus Christ announced He would return to earth opinions about how that happens have been plentiful. If people would read just basic verses they would never worry about May 21, 2011.

Let me offer up some scripture verses that speak to the issue. Check out; Matthew 24:3-4; Matthew 25:13; Mark 13:32: Daniel 12:1; Jeremiah 30:7

Modern false prophets like Harold Camping proclaim so many blatant errors and ridiculous ideas that to debunk them one by one would take more ink than this article can contain. Just be aware that Camping falsely predicted “Judgment Day” would occur in 1994. This could not occur with a true prophet of God. In 2 Peter 1:19 the Bible tells us “We have also a more sure word of prophecy…” God’s prophecies are sure. They never miss. Not one!

“You may wonder, ‘How will we know whether the prophecy is from the Lord or not?’ If the prophet predicts something in the Lord’s name and it does not happen, the Lord did not give the message. That prophet has spoken on his own and need not be feared.” (Deuteronomy 18:21-22 NLT)

Here is what God told the true prophet Ezekiel about false prophets. “Son of man, speak against the false prophets… who are inventing their own prophecies. Tell them to listen to the word of the Lord. This is what the Sovereign Lord says; Destruction is certain for the false prophets who are following their own imagination and have seen nothing at all. (Ezekiel 13:2-3)
