So far, all of the predictions about the end of the world have failed to pan out. The 2012 Mayan apocalypse was a total bust. Most recently, the “super blood moon” of September 2015 failed to send the entire state of California into the ocean. So it’s fair to say that no one really knows when ‘judgement day’ will come.
According to Jesus, “no one knows the day or the hour, but only His Heavenly Father.” This, however, hasn’t stopped an online Christian group from falling into a long tradition of repurposing and revamping old doomsday predictions, insisting that the now-deceased preacher, Harold Camping, was right and that his prophecies forecast the end of the world before October 31st, 2015.
Camping’s most widely spread prediction was that the Rapture would happen on May 21, 2011. According to the Pennsylvania-based eBible Fellowship, Camping was correct that May 21, 2011, was an important day, spiritually speaking. On that day, they say, “God saved his last soul and closed the door of heaven.” Now the group has recalculated that second date, putting it at the end of October 2015, “in all likelihood.”
Well, when it comes to the end of the world, I believe Jesus when he says that “no one knows the day or the hour, but God.” Nevertheless, we should be ready!
