Billboards like this one have been placed throughout the nation. Harold Camping, 90 year old nationally known radio host (Family Radio) sought to predict the exact date of the Lord’s return: May 21, 2011 which failed and NEVER came to be. Well fellow seekers, here we go again... Camping now is again predicting that the end of the world will occur this week on October 21, 2011.
Hundreds of previous dates set for the return of the Lord and the end of the world were erroneous predictions uttered by false prophets. Date setting is unbiblical. Below are some reasons why it is dangerous and wrong.
Conclusion: Rather than engaging in speculation and sensationalism, the believer is characterized by a. Eager anticipation (Tit. 2:13, "excitedly expecting..." b. Energized activity (Lk. 19:10, "occupy till I come") c. Extraordinary alertness (2 Thess. 2:13, "Let no man deceive you. . .") May this be our concern until the trumpet sounds and summons us into the presence of the Saviour!
