Ill admit i don't read the bible that much but im pretty sure it says that no one will know when god will come. In the NIV Bible Mark 13 verse 32-33 "32. No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Be on guard! Be alertf! You do not know when that time will come." Its not the firs time a group of people claimed to know when things end.

It's just some crazy idiots networking a single brain cell with absolutly no grasp on reality at all that would probably be better off locked up in a crazy home in some white wrap around jackets gently rocking back and forth in the special padded cells.

Anyone who believes all this really needs to get re-educated.

remember "ANYONE CAN WRITE ANYTHING ON THE INTERNET, JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE SAID IT, IT DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT", always use respected sourses of information and stay away from conspiracy theory sites as they are mainly written by deluded nut jobs, with about as much common sense as a deranged toad.

Shit better not happen. I'm not done with my visual novels and I want to watch the new code geass series.

Seriously though... This sounds like bull. Fear mongering never ceases to end. Christians were claiming the rapture a lot like this in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries as well. Mostly in due part to the age of enlightenment and split between science and church as separate world view approaches to the ultimate truth.

Pray all you want, I'm not saying that's bad. Prayer is good in keeping faith and building hope. It can make a man in terrible conditions continue living strong. It's the perfect tool for the weak. Then again, even to the non religious, prayers are ubiquitous in people's minds until they die.

Let me tell you this though. Praying is not done to change something. It's done because the action is needed by people. Most religious folk who understand how the religious establishment works know this as well.

I don't believe in that personally, whatever their 'freaky' premonitions are, it won't happen not unless we wish for it to happen.
In believing does the miracle you know...

There were some American preachers dotted around the city yesterday on microphones talking about this. I see it as a chance to end religious debates forever, because if it doesn't happen....well yay.

well... BRING IT ON! No seriously, nobody knows when the real end of the world will be, only God.

Thanks guys for your responses, but I read the Bible and I admit that sometimes I doubt it even though the proofs are there. :(

@mikecc, I went to their forum and asked the famous "No one knows, only the Father" meaning that NO MAN can know the return, only God....right? this is the answer one of them gave me: (the group/forum: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Latter_Rain/ )



And it really makes sense, the Bible is written in parables either way, it can be fully understood only if God guides you and no man knows but the Children of God are not any kind of man, surely Moises was not the same as any other man, He was a Child of God and God revealed many things to him. The same with Abraham, God revealed him when He was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and with Noah, God told Him that the earth was going to be destroyed with water and the only ones saved were Noah and his family, the ones God revealed everything to. And Daniel, God showed how the end will be:


That verse 'no man knows" is true but you have to search the whole Bible and then we will know that only the children of God will know because God is revealing it to them:


“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7



“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.” Proverbs 25:2

When we find the meaning of "Kings" inside the Bible only (not using any dictionary) there are many places where God call His people "Kings" so it is the work of His people to search out a matter.....

That verse "no man knows" is used A LOT by the churches and I don't beleive in the churches, I believe in the word of God which is the Bible, the churches use that verse to ignore everything,

I will suffer for 5 months by the hands of this... this glorified tyrant that is unjustly worshipped? Is that all your self-glorified "deity" can do to those who took his words of "free will" seriously? If so, he must be struck down. He is a bigger hypocritical tyrant than one would think.


God is our Creator and the pot has no power over the potter, has it? we are clay and God's hands created us. If you want to know why He is doing what He is doing, read the Bible, of course it's impossible to read/understand it without God's guidance - Faith. I was the same as you before....and I kind of understand why you're saying that but read this:







kamimusume

:) i don't think we should worry about when the world will end
Just be alert & keep yourselves ready for His coming.
cuz we will never know when that is..
& i'm sure no one wants to get left behind on the days of rapture and get to suffer the 7 years of tribulation.


And how do we keep ourselves ALERT?

The churches say that we don't know when he is coming, that Christ could come tomorrow or in 100 years, there's no certainty so,

God is telling us:

I Corinthians 14:7-8
"And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?

For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?"

But most people, especially those in the churches/congregations who call themselves christians don't care because they think they are fine with God but the problem here is that it is not what we may think, we have to obey God's word and not be like Saul...He was a chosen king by God and God told him to do something and he did it but not completely, only half and the other half he trusted in himself thinking that it was ok, and then God's wrath was upon him and took his throne and gave it to someone who would indeed listen to His word: His chosen son King David.

This is the same with the corporate church and Israel...they both were chosen by God but they did not hearken to God's word so God rejected them and now God's wrath is upon Israel and the churches....

I Samuel 15:22-23
"And Samuel said, Hath the Lord Jehovah [as great] delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey [is] better than sacrifice, [and] to hearken than the fat of rams.

For rebellion [is as] the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness [is as] iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord Jehovah, he hath also rejected thee from [being] king."

This is not only for Saul but for all of us because the Bible call the Sons of God: Kings!...

Revelation 1:6
"And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."

Revelation 5:10
"And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth."

1 Peter 2:9
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light"

so, God will rejected us from being King if we don't listen to His word...and that's only possible if God works in us because we are spiritually dead, God is the light and life and He calls and purifies His chosen people, and they will listen to God because God made it so, according to God's will and not ours... this is spiritual!! the true church/Israel/Jew is any person whom God chooses to salvation according to His Perfect will and mercy.

"Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD Jehovah cometh, for [it is] nigh at hand;" Joel 2:1

It is a command to sound the trumpet when we can see the enemy coming and for anyone who is a sinner and has not been saved, God is their enemy because God will come to destroy every sinner. It is the Law of God Romans 6:23 "the wages of sin is death" and Ezekiel 18:4 "the soul that sinneth, it shall die." God is letting the whole world know that He is coming soon: MAY 21, 2011 so pray for mercy, every Child of God prays to the Heavenly Father according to His PERFECT Will.

We are also commanded by God in Ezekiel 33:3
"If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

God connects the watchman to the end, revealing His secret...God is warning!!
Habakkuk 2:1-3
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.
And the LORD Jehovah answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make [it] plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision [is] yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

The watchman, when he sees the warning, he shall blow the trumpet!!!

Rev1:10
"...and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,"

Isaiah 58:1
"Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins."

That's how I understand it, would love to see verses where it says that we should not worry about it....so far I have found none.

I found one verse though that says:

1 Thessalonians 5:3
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

The churches say they are at peace and safe with God...this is yet another sign of His coming!

Revelation 3:3
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

How did they come up with that date anyway?


I'm still reading that part but here is something one of them said, if you want to check it out by yourself:






Vega66

So, that date is Judgement Day where all the "good" people are going to go to Heaven? I will laugh at all the Christian fanatics that will remain on Earth on that day and after.



But this is what I wrote in my first post:

Another thing she said is that all the churches will be left behind because they are all corrupted and she showed me where this says in the Bible. God is saving people OUT of the churches. Everyone can be a Child of God not because of your actions but because God chose you, just like the thief in the cross, he was thief but repented (that was a work of God, God gave him repentance) and was saved just seconds before his death and the Pharisees (like the Papa or church leaders of today) were condemned because of their hypocrisy. But they were meant to be destroyed. God chose His people according to His will, not according to our actions and they were chosen before they were born so those churches who said you must do this or that are WRONG.

You don't have to do anything, however, God is saving many people now and these people are praying for mercy, they are humble and trust God....she said that this is how you can know if you're saved, if you have that desire to serve God, and if not, there's still time to pray for mercy.


Which means that yes, most of the people who believe they will be saved because they go to church or are baptized or did this and that, they will be left behind...I'm not saying all...who knows! but this what the Bible is telling us. Salvation is 100% a work of God, not our work.

When it comes to salvation, "free will" doesn't exist here. We have to study the Bible well, because God said Himself in the Bible that it has snares, that's why He's always warning us to WATCH (meaning always study the Bible and comparing scriptures, praying for guidance and that's how God will lead you to truth) for example:

Matthew 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another...13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Can anyone say "I can endure unto the end"? no, we are dead in our sins, so our strength is meaningless...it's about what the whole Bible says? and not just one verse, we have the answer of those people who will endure


Psalms 29:11 The LORD(JEHOVAH) will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

Samuel2:9 He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

Deut31:8 And the LORD JEHOVAH, he [it is] that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.

I John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

So in what verse we have that only those who will endure until the end will be saved, but way before that we already have the answer that it is God who will be protecting His people and that's how they will endure until the end.

My dear friend, I do agree with all the passages found in the Bible. I can't also judge their beliefs about the Lord's coming this May 21. Maybe indeed the Lord had spoke to them in some ways which I haven't. Only thing I know is that we must not be bothered with this.
My saying of not being bothered does not imply that we should forget about it and stay calm and wait for that day, no. What I mean is that we must not be afraid and "worry".
If you truly are Christian.. then you must not worry. Be excited for His coming, yes that could be, but fret about it, no. I'm not saying not to worry because you are confident that you have strong faith. NO. Do not worry because God is there. He will never forsake you. He will come for those who awaits Him. He's coming for those who love Him.
Let us not put our confidence in ourselves, in our own faith BUT in GOD. Let us put our trust on GOD. Nothing else. If other people are claiming its the end of the world, do not be alarmed. Do not easily believe either. For centuries men has been trying to explain the bible.. try to decipher it & what it means about the end of the world. That's okay but let us not be like one parable Jesus said. About the two sisters, Martha and Mary. Martha became so busy with welcoming Jesus and became upset with Mary because she is not helping her out.
What I am saying is.. let us not be busy with deciphering all of this. Let it not sidetrack us in worshiping our Lord. GOD is the most important here.. He is.. not anything else.. focus yourselves on Him & His commandments and you will not have to worry about all of this. That's all...

^________^ sorry it was really long.. was just expressing what i felt about this. Hope I made my point clear..
