Harold Camping, founder of Family Radio has once again failed concerning his end time predictions.
For some time now, the 90-year-old Camping has attempted to predict the return of Jesus and the end of the world. He predicted that Jesus would return in September of 1994. He didn’t. Strike One! Then he made national headlines as he predicted that Jesus would return on May 21, 2011. Millions of dollars were spent in advertising, trying to warn people. Many followers sold all their possessions to support spreading the world. But Jesus didn’t come. Strike Two! After his mistaken prediction in May, he reemerged saying the Lord had revealed a little more to him and that it wasn’t May 21, but October 21 when the end will occur. Well, as I am typing this, it is October 22. Again Camping was wrong. Jesus didn’t return. Strike Three!
Friends, I don’t know about you, but I don’t have much faith in the batter! If I were you, I’d team up with the pitcher who happened to say, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36). [And as for the baseball analogies…it’s October].
