Honestly, I don’t even know how they come up with dates and whatnot and warn humanity and tells that the “BIBLE GUARANTEES IT”. Here’s the sample of the picture that’s making people around the world fret. Googled it.
Warning people about the return of Jesus Christ is good, if the motive is to share what He has done on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins and the redemption of our lives. But stating dates as judgement day? No way.
Here’s one of the many stories about it.

In support of Family Talk radio’s claim that the end of days is near, one Staten Island man has recently put his entire life’s savings into purchasing advertising to support the claims. 60-year-old Robert Fitzpatrick is in support of the organizations claims that the Bible points to a May 21 Judgment Day.
Fitzpatrick talks about the belief and the mathematical system that is allegedly highlighted in the Bible that points to May 21, 2011 as the end of the world in his book, ‘The Doomsday Code.’ The man spent $140,000 to display the advertisements on placards at subways and bus stops throughout the city. Along with Family Radio’s founder, Rev. Harold Camping, Fitzpatrick believes that an earthquake will occur May 21 that will leave Earth uninhabitable.
Camping has made several predictions for the end of the world in the past, including one date in 1994.
ECCLESIASTES 5:8 says “Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure”.
I do hope we all pray for a wiser heart and focus on sharing the Gospel rather than warning the people wrongly. Yes, the the Lord’s return is near and will happen quickly. The most important thing is that we are prepared for it the moment we received Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior. The next thing that we should be ready of is that we’re allowing God to use us as instruments to get others to be ready too.
REMEMBER, NO ONE KNOWS.
If you believe the May21- end of the world thing, I suggest you should start making upright decisions in your life TODAY. Join us at Youth Alive youth service and celebrate the life that God made possible for us. Saturdays at 5PM, Word of Church in front of SM North Annex. See you!
