There’s not much to say, dear reader, and not much time in which to say it. This is 21 October, The End of All Things, as foretold in the Good Book.
It’s been fun writing this humble blog, but nothing lasts forever. That applies not only to little things like blogs, but also to the world — and the universe itself.
We made one final search for news about End-Times prophet Harold Camping and his radio empire, Family Radio. We found this at the radio station’s website: SPECIAL MESSAGE 10/20/2011. It’s a very long message. Here’s a small excerpt from what it says, with bold font added by us and scripture passages omitted:
The Bible declares that it was God’s plan to save 200 million people out of all those that would ever live upon the earth. Just prior to May 21 of this year God finished the work of applying the redemption Christ had purchased for His people before the foundation of the world. Just prior to May 21, 2011, the Lord saved all of those whose names were written in the Lamb’s book of life. This act of God in finding all of His lost sheep, and then finally gathering them and leading them safely into the sheepfold of the Good Shepherd was accomplished right before May 21. On May 21 God then shut the door to heaven. Also known as the door to the sheepfold:
It’s too late to repent now. The door to the sheepfold is closed. The message continues:
May 21, 2011 also happened to be the 17th day of the 2nd Hebrew month. And that was the equivalent date to the beginning of the flood of Noah’s day 7000 years earlier:
Your humble Curmudgeon had once calculated that the Flood began on 01 April, but Camping knows best. Let’s read on:
Sadly, as we have earnestly studied the Bible over these five months we have found verse after verse that supports and strengthens the conclusion that the Lord is no longer saving sinners. He has finished that glorious work. Does this mean that we are no longer to pray for people’s salvation? No! It doesn’t mean that at all. Some have misunderstood or mischaracterized the teaching of the Bible at this time to indicate we’re teaching that man should no longer beseech the Lord for mercy. This is not true. God encourages us to cry to Him for mercy.
Yes, but it won’t do you any good. So where does that leave us? What does it matter? Soon we’ll all be nowhere.
For the moment, feel free to express yourselves. This is, perhaps, our final Free-Fire Zone. Say what you will.
