There are so many false teachings as of late, I'm sure you may have heard the prediction by Harold Camping. He believes that the "End Of The World", "Rapture of the Church", or "Judgement Day"... will take place on Saturday, May 21st.... at 6pm in your corresponding time zone.
This is a false prophesy. How do I know this?
First, Harold Camping has already been proven to be a false prophet. In 1992, he published a book titled "1994?" predicting the end of the world on September 6, 1994. Obviously, he was wrong. What do you call someone who prophesied and the prophesy didn't come true? A FALSE prophet!
Second, I know it's false because it contradicts the Word of God. The Bible clearly states, by Jesus Himself, that NO ONE KNOWS the day or the hour. Not the angels and not even the Son. Only the Father knows. So why would God give someone a prophesy that goes against His Word? He wouldn't! And if you allow yourself to believe He would... then you must believe Jesus to be a liar. See below... the words of Jesus...
How much more clearer can it be?
Now, more than ever, we need to be reading our Bible for ourselves. Eternity is too important to be taken at someone else's word... someone else's understanding of what the Bible really means.
Don't take anyone else's word! Please! Not a pastor, preacher, an evangelist, a neighbor... and certainly not me! You have Heaven and Hell before you. ETERNITY! This is YOUR decision! You will stand before God ALONE! Please don't make a decision because 'someone said', or 'I heard', or even 'I think'. Read the Bible for yourself! Pray and ask God to show you the truth. He is faithful. He hears our prayers and knows our hearts.
I can't tell you enough how important it is. The Bible tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:21 to "prove all things" (KJV) or "test everything" (NIV). No matter what you hear in church on Sunday... no matter what you hear on christian radio or tv... no matter what your best christian friend or neighbor says.... and no matter what you read on any blog or in the paper... TEST IT!... before you believe it. Make sure it lines up with the Word of God.
“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
