God has humbled us through the events of May 21, to continue to even more fervently search the Scriptures (the Bible), not to find dates, but to be more faithful in our understanding. We must also openly acknowledge that we have no new evidence pointing to another date for the end of the world. Though many dates are circulating, Family Radio has no interest in even considering another date.
Doomsday preacher Harold Camping was left a laughing stock when his prediction that the world would end on May 21 failed to materialise.
The Christian radio station belonging to Harold Camping, who twice incorrectly predicted the world would end, plans to replace his weekday segment Open Forum with new programming after rebroadcasting the last show he recorded before suffering a stroke on June 9. Family Radio on Hegenberger Road began playing repeats of Open Forum after a stroke hospitalized the 89-year-old Camping. On Monday, staff again started airing 20 segments recorded by Camping from May 23 — two days after he most recently predicted Judgment Day would arrive — through June 9.
The radio preacher who sparked an international media frenzy by predicting the end of the world last month has suffered a stroke. Harold Camping was rushed to hospital from his Alameda, California home on Thursday night. The 89-year-old has survived the stroke – but there are fears that the gravelly, famous voice he used to make his predictions to millions around the world will never be the same.
He believed that Harold Camping’s “doomsday” was about to happen. Authorities pulled Frasno’s body out of the lake just before midnight on Friday. Judgement Day was pegged for the next day based on a prediction by Oakland-based evangelist Harold Camping and his Family Radio group. The world kept turning, but investigators believe the frenzy that had been whipped up around the so-called ‘rapture’ with a global advertising campaign and vast media coverage may have helped to push Frasno over the edge.
False prophet Harold Camping has said that he will make a public statement this evening vis his Open Forum radio program Click here to listen live online, starting at 8:30PM EST. SPOILER ALERT: he has no intention of apologizing, retracting or repenting in any way, shape or form.
It has been a really tough weekend,” said Harold Camping, the 89-year-old fundamentalist radio preacher who convinced hundreds of his followers that the rapture would occur on Saturday at 6 p.m. Massive earthquakes would strike, he said. Believers would ascend to heaven and the rest would be left to wander a godforsaken planet until Oct. 21, when Camping promised a fiery end to the world.
Well, his prophecy of the Rapture happening today at 6:00PM in New Zealand has failed to come true. Mr. Camping did say, however, that the bible “guaranteed it” would occur. Since it did not, Harold Camping is now officially a 2-time false prophet. NTEB will no longer report on anything he has to say.
Accountants put the total worth of Family Radio at $72 million. With those kind of financials — and controversial beliefs — it’s no wonder skeptics have accused the group of running a scam. Camping first inaccurately predicted the world would end in 1994. Even so, he has gathered even more followers — some who have given up their homes, entire life savings and their jobs because they believe the world is ending. Esther, the receptionist in the Oakland office, said some of her most extreme coworkers have recently driven up in fancy cars or taken their families on nice vacations as a last hurrah.
Harold Camping has finally attracted the level of attention that he so desperately has been seeking. The eyes of the world are now focused on his (false) end times prediction that the Rapture of the church will happen tomorrow, May 21, 2011. And by doing so, he has brought nothing but mockery and disdain to the true cause of Christ.
May 21, 2011 is God’s date. All other predictions are man’s attempt to predict the end. So it becomes a matter of eternal life, or eternal death. One can no longer presume May 21st of this year will be just another normal day. Each person must come to entrust their lives to what God has written in His Word the Bible and plead to Him for mercy. Otherwise God will come upon them with unmerciful vengeance on May 21, 2011.
Like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mr. Camping accuses anyone who differs with him of not really believing the Bible and accuses them of being idolatrous of their church. The true idol here is Mr. Camping. Will Christians read the Bible for themselves and search the Scriptures to know if these things are true, or will they blindly follow Mr. Camping into yet another false prophecy? And what will be the result for them if they do?
We firmly believe that Harold Camping has crossed the line from being passionately mistaken to becoming a full-fledged false prophet. Now I know that nothing we can say here will dissuade his rabid followers, and that’s fine. But we are going on record and calling Mr. Camping a false prophet, and a worker against the Holy Spirit of the God of the bible.
Harold Camping is a false prophet.The Rapture of the Church will take place at the exact moment and time that God Almighty has decreed it to be, and not one second sooner or later. It is impossible to “set a date” for the return of Jesus. Jesus Himself, when asked about it in the bible, said that He didn’t have that information available, and that only the Father knew. We must take Him at His word. Harold Camping is not simply mistaken, he is actively working against the Holy Spirit and against the clear revelation of the Scriptures. Pray that he be recovered from the snare of the Devil that he has placed himself under. But whatever you do, do NOT believe him. Do not trust his false teachings. Trust in the One that saved you, and in His Book, the Holy Bible
