"Re: Rene and the missed dates"
There are fire alarms that go
off in schools. The principals know if it's a real fire or false
alarm. Yet they go off to prepare the students in case of a real
emergency. So I believe it is with the Lord allowing rapture
dates to be predicted, only to be false alarms. They are allowed
to happen because they prepare us for the real thing. Our fleshly
nature is prone to be lazy and put off the things we should be
doing. So we need motivation. This is how I see it, and it
helps me to prepare. A little warning here or there helps.
The Lord knows which ones are inaccurate, but he allows them
anyway. It's not to tease us. He is merciful, wanting that
none should perish.
