Coming of Christ...

Harold Camping had once again stated that the end of the world would end on October 21, 2011. He was wrong in 1994, May 21, 2011, and October 22, 2011. Their are list and list of false prophets stating that the world was going to come to an end on a specific date, but have all been proved wrong. The next date is from Nostradamous stating the world will end on December 21, 2012.

Matthew 24:36 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

I'm not sure what the false prophets thinking is... Well only the Father and 'some guy' (false prophet) know when the world is coming to an end... Boy I feel left out. ;)

False Prophets

From Pastor Steven Davey, Colonial Baptist Church - Raleigh, NC:

In 236 A.D. a church father named Hippolytus said that the scriptures taught that Christ was
returning in 500 A.D. A century later, another church leader amended that date and said Christ was actually coming in 400 A.D. An early German Lutheran pastor made headlines a couple hundred years later by predicting that Christ would return at 8:00 am on October 19, 1533.
It ended up becoming quite embarrassing because Martin Luther wouldn't go along with him. In spite of that, a large crowd gathered in his German town at the appointed time and sometime after 8:00 a.m. left him standing alone. In 1902, a group of Protestants waited for
Christ to return to their rural Canadian village and take them away. Since the rapture meant they would be leaving their clothing behind, as an act of even deeper commitment and belief in their prediction, they arrived and waited together, completely naked. Out in the cold, Canadian air they waited. The article read, Christ did not return, but there were several cases of frostbite reported.

All these date-setters from different centuries and different countries have this one thing in
common— you know what it is? They’re all wrong.

And in the meantime, here’s what we’re to do:
  • keep on living for Christ
Be patient . . . establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near (James 5:9)
  • keep looking for Christ
When He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has
this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. (1 John 3:2—3)
