I used to listen to Harold Camping's open forum back in 1993-1995. He wrote a book "1994". I bought it but had a difficult time understanding it. He was absolutely sure the Lord was returning Sept 1994...around Sept 21 if I recall. He used a lot of math as well as the Fall feast days to arrive at the date. And btw, while he strongly believes the Lord is returning soon (good for him), I don't buy his teachings.Last year, I came across his latest book " Time has an end" -a biblical history of the world 11,013 BC - 2011 AD. I bought it and looked through it but did not read it thoroughly.I'm done looking at 'dates' and 'feasts' for the Lord's imminent return. With all my heart and soul, I believe Jesus is about to come for us. I am excited as all get out ! I pray w/o ceasing pray......especially for the church to be sanctified, pleasing, Holy and acceptable to our God. I pray for our loved ones, and friends, neighbors who don't know Jesus...don't know the Word of God. I pray for our pets and all the animals of the world too for God to protect them. May they be raptured as well ! (I believe our pets will be and most animals as well.)But to say with absolute certainty Jesus is returning on a given date, I don't place any trust or hope on it regardless of the calculations based on scripture. We've been there...done that.I do believe with all my heart, Jesus could very well come this year..and if not, perhaps there is more than meets the eye and will return by December 2012. Either year, we are very, very close to His imminent return and He is our Blessed Hope...the HOPE of Glory !Here are some more compelling reasons to hold on to our Blessed Hope of His imminent return:The propaganda to buy Gold. Wow...we just can't hear enough about buying Gold. What's interestingly sad is most people are living from paycheck to paycheck if at all ! And they want us to buy GOLD ?Revelation 18:11 explains what happens to gold:The merchants of the world will weep and mourn for her, for there is no one left to buy their goods. 12 She bought great quantities of gold, silver, jewels, and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk, and scarlet cloth; things made of fragrant thyine wood, ivory goods, and objects made of expensive wood; and bronze, iron, and marble....vs. 15: The merchants who became wealthy by selling her these things will stand at a distance, terrified by her great torment. They will weep and cry out,
16 “How terrible, how terrible for that great city!
She was clothed in finest purple and scarlet linens,
decked out with gold and precious stones and pearls!
17 In a single moment
all the wealth of the city is gone!”
The world economy is on the verge of collapsing right ?
I like the way John Hagee put the question: Do you want to know when the economy is going to collapse? Answer: When we hear the SHOUT..the VOICE of the ARCHANGEL..the TRUMP of GOD !!! Halleluiah to the Lamb of God !
It's almost time saints ! We're going home soon ! I hope and pray it's TODAY !!
Come QUICKLY LORD JESUS ! The Spirit and the BRIDE say "COME" !!
