Of Course the Rapture Didnít Happen (But It Will!)

Because of Harold Camping's false teachings and failed prophecies, we Christians should shut up about the Rapture and Christ's Return, right? Wrong! We should proclaim it with more urgency and conviction than ever before! A message preached on May 22, 2011 at Rozetta Baptist Church.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Miscellaneous; Religion; Weird Stuff
KEYWORDS: camping; false; prophecy; rapture
How should Bible-believing Christ-followers respond to the fallout from Harold Camping's false prophecy, and how do we respond to the lamestream media's unwillingness to draw distinctions between real, legitimate Christians and Harold Camping, Fred Phelps, Westboro Baptist, Mormons etc.? Let 'er rip!

Lesson to be learned: be ready, for we don’t know the day or the hour of that day.

Well, seeing as how the day is past, we ought to remember the words of Jesus, when he said that he will come as a thief.

Would any thief bother telling a property owner when he would break into the house?

There will be one rapture and thousands of not raptures. Prepare for both.

Yes we do; November 2012 if Obamination if re-elected. No doubt it will be the end of the world.

If you are a Christian, live your life accordingly. You could die tomorrow. Jesus will come again, and those that are in him will be raptured. It will happen on God’s schedule, not ours. Guy’s like Camping have been coming and going since Paul’s time. There will be more of them. On January 1st, 2013, a lot of false prophets will have been proven wrong.

The real reason the Rapture did not happen:

The liberals were getting together a petition to outlaw Crispy Creme donuts in Heaven. God said, like hell you are, and just decided to cancel the entire thing!

The rapture DID happen, yesterday!

My liquor cabinet is empty, I have a hangover today and I notice a sour smell coming from my keyboard.

The bible clearly says we won’t know the day and the hour in advance.

By the way, any word from Camping?

Yes be ready for what ever day our Father chooses but study the Bible and you’ll find not a word to support the idea of a Pre-Trib” rapture. Therefore be ready to explain the cause for the hope that is within you when the terror comes to the world in those days.

Good thing we distanced ourselves from that rubbish in advance.

“By the way, any word from Camping?”

He’s laughing all the way to the bank. I’ve heard he doesn’t receive money, but there are many ways that he could be gaining from the panic. In the meantime, many peoples’ faith is shaken, and the left will try to cobble all conservatives with wackos who fell for this.
