Camping Prophesy Fails
« on: May 21, 2011, 01:19:51 AM »
Harold Camping was wrong. He is a false prophet. There are no quakes rocking New Zealand and Australia. None have been raptured.

The LA Times reported "As of 10:30 p.m. PDT -- 7:30 p.m. May 21 on Christmas Island, also known as Kiritimati -- no earthquakes had been reported within the last hour and a half, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, which tracks seismic activity worldwide."

"New Zealand region yet to suffer destruction forecast by Oakland-based doomsday predictor," tweeted burntheartist Bernie B. source
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

Below are the top ten Doomsday predictions (chronologically, the most recent one being first) since the 20th century that haven’t quite worked out.

Ronald Weinland, 2008
Ronald Weinland, God’s Church minister, said in his book, “2008: God’s Final Witness”, that “by the fall of 2008, the United States will have collapsed as a world power and no longer exist as an independent nation.”

Y2K, January 1, 2000
Toward the end of the millennium, many people were seriously worried that computers may not distinguish between 2000 and 1990. Stories about catastrophic events, ranging from massive blackouts to nuclear holocaust, disturbed the public. But January 1, 2000 was another bright New Year day.

Michel de Nostrdame, August 1999
16th-century French apothecary and seer Nostradame have made several predictions during his lifetime. One of such predictions is that in the seventh month of year 1999, a great king of terror will come from the sky. The world did not end in August 1999.

Heaven's Gate, 1997
The rumor about aliens coming with Hale-Bopp comet spread in 1997. Although the claim was refuted, a San Diego UFO cult called Heaven’s Gate believed the world would come to an end soon, resulting in 39 of its members committing suicide. The body of the cult’s founder Marshall Applewhite was among the dead.

Harold Camping, September 1994
Harod Camping ranks among the failed Doomsday prophets because he had already predicted once that in September 1994 God will destroy the whole world. However, when nothing happened, Camping excused himself saying he had made a mathematical error.

Will Camping’s May 21, 2011 Doomsday prediction come true? If not, then Camping will have the distinction of successfully fooling gullible people twice.

“Hyoo Go” (Rapture), October 28, 1992
A notorious Korean cult “Hyoo Go” believed that they will Rapture on October 28, 1992 (“Hyoo Go” means Rapture in Korean). They firmly believed that Jesus was coming on that date and they will be joining with him in the air. People gathered in huge stadiums to Rapture. When the event did not happen according to the prediction, chaos broke out and some even tried to kill the cult leaders with knives.

Vladimir Solovyev, 1990
A Russian theologian Vladimir Solovyev made a wild prophecy that Japanese will conquer most of the world but then Europeans will win them back. An intellectually brilliant individual would then rise up and unite the entire world and be accepted as the Messiah, even by the Jews. But when the Jews will find out that he is not a Jew, it will resulting in a revolt in Jerusalem and an eruption of a volcano near the Dead Sea.

Marion Gordon Pat Robertson, 1982
A famous televangelist from the 1980’s, Pat Robertson shocked the media by saying that the Judgment day will come in 1982. Millions of people believed him because he held an eminent position not only as a televangelist but also in the business industry. When his prediction failed, many people derided him.

Doug Clark, 1976
Doug Clark in his book in 1976 “The Death of the United States and the Birth of One World Government Under President Carter” said that President Jimmy Carter would be “the president who will meet Mr. 666, the Antichrist”. The earth did not end but the controversial author’s popularity took a dive.

Halley's Comet, 1910
Interestingly, scientists, and not religious fanatics, spread the panic saying that the Earth will pass through the tail of Halley’s comet in 1910 and predicted that deadly toxic gas cyanogen emitting from the comet will envelope the world and the toxic fume will kill everybody. However, far from the worst population decreasing, it has increased by at least 4 times.


The most recent one happened tonight. Harold Camping once more issued a failed prophecy while the entire world watched.

What will he do, what will his followers do on May 22?
  For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Psalm 119:89

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.


These false prophets haven't even shown signs and wonders and they deceive masses. What does that tell us about what is coming?
