Predictions of the end of the world. 1844, 1914, 197_?, 1984, 1994, 2000's; Harold Camping on Family Radio says 5/21/2011. Michael Rood of Rood Awakening marked The Day of Atonement 2010 (or no later than 2/2011) when he would watch Damascus being nuked. It is still there to my knowledge; maybe it was a "suitcase" bomb? Mr. Rood, who is respected in some areas of teaching, gave some proof from the Scriptures. Oh well! We could have told them so!
From Scriptures, HosYah 6:1-11 and the "concept of the Seventh Sabbatical" 6,980 years man's time on the earth to now, almost 2000 years from YaHOSHA Messiah's death, burial and resurrection (2029 to 2033) it can be then, if anytime soon! For all practical purposes, I SHALL be gone! I'll be dead! Too old by then! So even though I swallowed Hal Lindsay's 1984 theory, but I predicted correctly (so far) that Messiah will not return for maybe another twenty years, we cannot sit back and scorn Lindsay, Rood, Camping saying, "Ha Ha! YOU were WRONG!" Most of you would not be so carnal, Hallel YaHVaH!
"Fear not little flock" YaHOSHA said, "It is the Father's pleasure to give you the kingdom". John 14.
We KNOW HE is returning to this earth. Way too much Scripture to intellectually or otherwise deny this reality. Our Maker is about to call us, I think. Oh, it will be grand! HE will subdue His enemies. All will be trampled under His "feet". It will be literal, not symbolic. Hallel YaHVaH!
Be encouraged! Dates are important. Y2K Year 2000 and the alleged computer problem meant nothing to me, nor did 2001 which began this Century. 6980 years since Adam is it not? Well subtract his age, so 6000. The date is very important to us. We just do not know exactly when it is. All I know is that 34 years ago, I was a nobody, and SOMEBODY, YaHOSHA set me free from my old flesh. We are born of water and of the Spirit John 3. I am UNGRATELFUL! Yet, "Thank you YaHOSHA Messiah, for Thy unmerited favor, Ephesians 2:2-10, Romans 10:9 and so and so on!
"I knew nothing about The Revelation. Ha! What's that! Who would care, not me! It is our blessed hope. Thank Thee for giving us Sooooooooooooo muchhhhhhhhhh! Had a lot of bad, dumb, dull times, but praise YaHVaH, Thou art our King! Hallel YaHVah."
Harold, Michael, Ellen G. White, Chas. Taz., Armstrong and others can stick out their naked necks and put up billboards about the "date", the unbelievers can put up more billboards and Progressive Talk radio to mock them, us and YaHVaH (oh forbid it!), but the sheep, they just cannot be sidetracked. We "hear" His voice by reading The Scriptures. And, I do not care what anybody says! I still love the Antioch scrolls, from where we get the KJV. Few versions, if any, will surpass it. Maranantha!
