THE END OF THE WORLD IS ALMOST HERE!
HOLY GOD WILL BRING JUDGMENT DAY ON
MAY 21, 2011
Harold Camping is a false prophet. He is prophesying, on his website, that God has told him that the Lord will return on May 21, 2011. He has prophesied the return of the Lord another time, in 1994, and it did not occur, and the Bible proclaims loudly that no one knows the time or the hour of the Lord’s return, not even the angels. We needn’t go any further, the Bible condemns him with the words from his own mouth. This is easy, if you believe the Bible is the true, inspired word of God.
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Matthew 24:36).
Deuteronomy 18:20-22 (New International Version)
20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded him to say, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, must be put to death.”
21 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD ?” 22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.
So, according to the Bible Harold Camping is a false prophet; don’t listen to him.
Harold Camping is easy, but what about all those other false prophets, who don’t necessarily set dates, but speak for God in all kinds of other matters?
It is not unusual to sit in a “church” and hear the Pastor say many things he says the Lord, or the Spirit, has spoken to him. Consequently, all this nonsense is passed down to the congregation and they begin to prophesy of things the Lord says He is fulfilling in their lives through dreams, visions, trances, or answered prayers. Let me give you an example: one pastor I am familiar with, who I will just call JF, regularly hears the Lord speak to him during Sunday services, and gives advice, warnings, and prophesies healings and such. Well, of course the congregation in the heated frenzy also begins to hear voices and speak in the Lord’s name.
Through this false prophesying and teaching the followers of these men begin to get all kinds of confirmation to prayer, and set out in every direction trying to fulfill what they believe are answers to prayer. They never stop to answer the question, why hasn’t all of these answers come to past as they were predicted? Or why has so-and-so never recovered from that illness, or the marriage restored, or the car keys found? But, if by chance some one does recover from the cold or flu as prophesied, then that event trumps all the unfulfilled words and validates that God is really working in their lives, as they have been taught.
These same people may even condemn Harold Camping, but are they any different, are they not also falsely proclaiming the word of God, and being presumptuous?
The test of the prophets are still valid today as they were in the days of old, nothing has changed. Nothing has changed in the attitudes of men either, they so desire a word from God that they must have it or else they will fabricate their own experiences and proclaim from the roof tops that God has spoken to them.
The land is full of these frauds. They speak for God and nothing happens or their programs fail, then rather than repent of their stupidity they seal their damnation by continuing to put words in God’s mouth.
Oh, it is so easy to lock onto Harold Camping because of his boldness, but we overlook the others who are just as false, but only say that God has answered their prayer that He want them to build a big religious building or organization. Who is worse? Are they not both false? Or what about the sheep who copy their methods, thinking they have been led down the right path, while all the time their path is strewn with the litter of defeat, failure, and unanswered prayer?
When will Christians wake-up and quit treating the God of the Universe like a genie for their own personal enjoyment? Their exhibitions are a mockery of God, but the beat goes on, and on, and on. When will we ever learn?
