May 21, 2011. What’s the Big Deal?

As I’ve personally, been cracking jokes about Day of Rapture being May 21, 2011, I’ve realized I have no idea what I’m talking about.  I joined Facebook’s “Post Rapture Looting” Event.  It says that we will go out and get sweet electronics for our awesome mansions that we’ll squat in after the rapture.

I’m obviously, not going to go looting, but I’m highly amused by the idea.  I’m at Starbucks, sitting next to two 30-something year old preachers.  I was totally eaves dropping.  One of their people has sold all of their Earthly items, and given all of the money to religious charities.  He STRONGLY urged her against this, but she did it anyways.  I wonder where she’s living now.  He then cracked that he’s not preparing a sermon for Sunday, because he will be in Heaven by then.

It’s nice to hear intelligent, believers of Jesus be silly about this.  Do you know why people are claiming it’s going to be the Rapture?  I didn’t.  Then I found this page http://www.judgementday2011.com.  Here’s the short of what I learned on it.

“May 21 Rapture Predicted Years Ago

Harold Camping has warned that the Rapture would come on May 21st 2011 for years, and end nears, many are left questioning if his Prophecy is fake.  The Bible has taught Christians to always be ready for the Second Coming of Jesus at any time, sparking Judgement Day predictions throughout history.  Even Harold Camping had a previous prediction of the Return of Jesus for the Rapture that was incorrect due to a mathematical error – when his September 1994 date came and went without incident.  What makes him so sure that this year, this date of May 21 2011, will in fact be the date of the Rapture?

  1. The number 5 equals “atonement”, the number 10 equals “completeness”, and the number 17 equals “heaven”.
  2. Christ hung on the cross on April 1, 33 AD. The time between April 1, 33 AD and April 1, 2011 is 1,978 years.
  3. If 1,978 is multiplied by 365.2422 days (the number of days in a solar year), the result is 722,449.
  4. The time between April 1 and May 21 is 51 days.
  5. 51 + 722,449 = 722,500.
  6. (5 × 10 × 17)2 or (atonement × completeness × heaven)2 also equals 722,500.

Thus, Camping concludes that 5 × 10 × 17 is telling us a “story from the time Christ made payment for our sins until we’re completely saved.”

End of the World on May 21st?  No!

While God give us the date of May 21st Doomsday in the Bible, that is not the date of the End of the World.  May 2011 is just the beginning of Armageddon, and the time when Jesus rules over the Earth.  Those who aren’t saved in the May 21 Rapture will be left behind after Doomsday under the rule of Jesus Christ for the final five months until the End of the World in 2011.

The End of the World 2011 isn’t May 21st, but instead it is October 21st.  After the 5 months of Torment on Earth during the Apocalypse under the rule of Jesus, God will destroy the world on October 21 2011.  Flooding, Famine, Locusts, and large Earthquakes will dominate the End Times, causing mass chaos on earth.  The times of the end leading up to the End of the World 2011 will be particularly chaotic as Satan himself attempts to defeat Jesus in the battle of Armageddon.  The Book of Revelations has already revealed that Jesus will defeat Satan just before the End of the World 2011.

Is the End of The World May 21st, or October 21st for You?

Have you been saved by Jesus?  Do you know, love and accept God in your life?  If so, you will be saved in the May 21 Rapture by Jesus.  The other side of May 21 Judgement Day is that of Doomsday.  Those who aren’t saved by Jesus in the Rapture are are considered “Lost,” and will realize their fate after others are saved, and they are left behind in the May 21st Doomsday.

New people find Jesus every day, and you only have 2 full days remaining until May 21 2011.  Please, let God into your heart, be saved in the May 21 Rapture, and be among those saved on Judgement Day 2011.”

So now that we all know what it’s all about, I have to wonder, What in The HELL!?!  Seriously.  Even if you’re a believer, how do you POSSIBLY think that this man’s math is correct.  I could make any amount of BS mathematic equations based on all kinds of numbers from the Bible and come up with a date.  The only people who should believe this are those that are mentally challenged.  I am find with them preaching on the corner about “The End.”

So, I’m going to use it as a great reason to shoot off some fireworks in our backyard.  There is a Native American fireworks stand just down the street from us, so it should be a great show!!!

I don’t have much more to say about it.  I just thought it pertinent to make a “final” post for all of my friends that will be headed to Heaven on Saturday.

Have a great Rapture!!!

    Parenthetically, my husband (who was raised dutch reform as a child and is subsequently an atheist as an adult, but still remembers all of his “bible teachings”) tells me that the Bible states that NO ONE will know when the rapture comes.

    Do you suppose Mr. Camping forgot that particular section of the Bible? Ah well.

    I feel incredibly sorry for those poor people who bought into this tripe. And I look forward to raiding their food stores come October.
