Harold Camping: Rapture Rescheduled for October 21, Twitter Laughs On
webpronews ^ | 24 May 2011 | Josh Walford

Posted on 05/24/2011 10:56:12 AM PDT by Cronos

The “flabbergasted” biblical numerologist Harold Camping has emerged from seclusion and addressed the world about the still impending rapture

...last night, the 89-year-old fake prophet announced that the rapture was far from cancelled – but simply postponed. More specifically, he was not off on the dates. May 21st marked a more “spiritual” beginning of the end, and in five months the real end will come.

...Camping, as quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle:

“Were not changing a date at all; we’re just learning that we have to be a little more spiritual about this. But on Oct. 21, the world will be destroyed. It won’t be five months of destruction. It will come at once.

We don’t need to talk about it anymore. The world has been warned – my it has been warned. We have done our share and the media picked it up. The world has been warned that it is under judgment.”

Would someone tell this mental patient to just STFU already?? Some people just don’t know when to stop digging their holes even deeper. He makes all of us Christians look bad with his nuttery.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.”

Matthew 24:36.

Kamping has selective memory.

What time on the 21st?

I have an appointment for a haircut at 3:00PM and I need to know if I should change the appointment time.

Camping is like a globalist warmer. Prove his data wrong, and he springs right back with more wrong data. In this case, it’s the same data re-crunched through his delusion calculator.

Hmmm, let's see if I can do a little of this numerology thing:

Loius Farrakhan - obsessed with the number 19
Harold Camping - seemingly obsessed with the number 21

21-19 = 2 absolute morons

Wow! Numerology is not only easy, but it really works!

You probably shouldn’t get your hair cut just before the rapture — Jesus might not recognize you... ...unless you think that could work to your benefit...

Who, exactly, is sending money to this dip-sh1t?

(Not you, Cronos — I was referring to Mr. Camping. I’m okay with people sending you their money and possessions — as long as I can get a finder’s fee on those I refer to you.)

The 21st is no good for me. Can we make it the 25th?

Finder’s fee? Ok, I’ll keep 58%, you get 57% and FR gets 72%? Sound fair to you (I’m using Camping’s numerology book to count — noo counting eshtyle!)

Maybe you should shave your head. Less wind resistence, so you’ll go faster, get to heaven quicker.

I wouldn’t be surprised if a “Heaven’s Gate” like scenario occurred with Camping and some of his followers.

The 25th doesn’t work for me....

...but the 28th would be okay. Maybe... ...early afternoon?

Why the fuss. Since Obama just rolled back the clock by 3 years, 5 months, we all have time to prepare...

Sad thing is his followers are not abandoning him. They will fall just as easily for the Oct 21 date. This is why Jesus gave a special warning against false prophets, knowing how they can trap people in their snare and getting out is next to impossible. Jim Jones comes to mind.

I am currently reading this book. A much different story than Camping's

BTW, this book was written in 1881; you wouldn't believe how accurate it is!

The End of the Present World
 
Reading this book was one of the greatest graces of my life!"
— St. Thérèse of Lisieux

In the late nineteenth century, Father Charles Arminjon, a priest from the mountains of southeastern France, assembled his flock in the town cathedral to preach a series of conferences to help them turn their thoughts away from this life’s mean material affairs—and toward the next life’s glorious spiritual reward. His wise and uncompromising words deepened in them the spirit of recollection that all Christians must have: the abiding conviction that heavenly aims, not temporal enthusiasms, must guide everything we think, say, and do.

When Father Arminjon’s conferences were later published in a book, many others were able to reap the same benefit—including fourteen-year-old Thérèse Martin, then on the cusp of entering the Carmelite convent in Lisieux. Reading it, she says, “plunged my soul into a happiness not of this earth.” Young Thérèse, filled with a sense of “what God reserves for those who love him, and seeing that the eternal rewards had no proportion to the light sacrifices of life,” copied out numerous passages and memorized them, “repeating unceasingly the words of love burning in my heart.”

Now the very book that so inspired the Little Flower is available for the first time in English.

Let the pages of The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life fill you with the same burning words of love, with the same ardent desire to know God above all created things, that St. Thérèse gained from them. Let them also enrich your understanding of certain teachings of the Faith that can often seem so mysterious, even frightening:

  • The signs that will precede the world’s end
  • The coming of the Antichrist, and how to recognize him
  • The Judgment and where it may send us: heaven, hell, and purgatory
  • Biblical end-times prophecy: how to read it and not be deceived

    Jesus commands us to be ever-watchful for his return, and ever-mindful that we have no lasting city on earth. The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life is an invaluable aid to inculcating in your spirit that heavenly orientation, without which true human happiness cannot be found—in this world or the next.

That’s a very good analogy. This is exactly like Al Gore and his church of global warming disaster. Prediction after prediction fail but yet they still believe.
