Title: The end of the world is May 21, 2011
Post by: Ichimaru Gin :] on August 04, 2010, 02:28:41 PM
I keep hearing this over and over on Bible family radio...but why? Is there any reason or evidence (ex:a passage from the Bible) that supports this?

 ::) There are always ridiculous interpretations about the apocalypse from bible-code type shit. It's the same way they can interpret the 7 days in Genesis to be 10,000 years and shit like that. Lets discuss this very little, shall we?

Meaning in numbers
By Camping's understanding, the Bible was dictated by God and every word and number carries a spiritual significance. He noticed that particular numbers appeared in the Bible at the same time particular themes are discussed.

The number 5, Camping concluded, equals "atonement." Ten is "completeness." Seventeen means "heaven." Camping patiently explained how he reached his conclusion for May 21, 2011.

"Christ hung on the cross April 1, 33 A.D.," he began. "Now go to April 1 of 2011 A.D., and that's 1,978 years."

Camping then multiplied 1,978 by 365.2422 days - the number of days in each solar year, not to be confused with a calendar year.

Next, Camping noted that April 1 to May 21 encompasses 51 days. Add 51 to the sum of previous multiplication total, and it equals 722,500.

Camping realized that (5 x 10 x 17) x (5 x 10 x 17) = 722,500.

Or put into words: (Atonement x Completeness x Heaven), squared.

"Five times 10 times 17 is telling you a story," Camping said. "It's the story from the time Christ made payment for your sins until you're completely saved.

"I tell ya, I just about fell off my chair when I realized that," Camping said.

Or we nuke ourselves into oblivion with carefully targeted strikes that are designed to irradiate all areas of the planet.

Oh what the fuck

The End of the World
October 21, 2011

The purpose of this tract is to inform you of the great urgency there now is in the world for each and every person to be reconciled to God.  The Bible is the Word of God!  Everything the Bible declares has the full authority of God Himself.  Now, at this time, information is coming forth from the Bible which clearly reveals God?s plan for Judgment Day and the end of the world itself.  The Bible has opened up its secrets concerning the timeline of history.  This information was never previously known because God had closed up His Word blocking any attempt to gain knowledge of the end of the world.  We read about this in the book of Daniel:

Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

However, now in our present day, God has opened up His Word (the Bible) to reveal a great deal of truth concerning the end of time (and many other teachings).  Also, in the same chapter of Daniel, it says:

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

God is now opening up His Word because we have arrived at the time of the end.  For this reason, it has become very obvious to the serious student of the Bible that we are now living in the last few days of earth?s history.  As a matter of fact, because we are living at the end of time, God is now revealing to His people the following information


2011 AD?On May 21st, Judgment Day will begin and the rapture (the taking up into heaven of God?s elect people) will occur at the end of the 23-year great tribulation.  On October 21st, the world will be destroyed by fire (7000 years from the flood; 13,023 years from creation).

On my fucking 30th birthday?

Thats pretty damn lame.

Jesus came back just after the 1200s, in rural Spain. He performed a miracle or two but was killed by the ignorant masses (again) for practicing witchcraft and for refusing to bow to the Authoritah of the Roman Catholic Church.


After that, God decided Earth was no longer worth it and moved on.

Well, on one hand Jesus should have the ability to make me know he's jesus and shouldn't have to do anything extravagant to prove it.  On the other hand, any ol' alien with mind control rays could do that I'm sure.

Also I'm pretty sure Jesus is a fictional character anyway, so it would really take an act of god (pun intended) to sway me.

Just back to the original OP, the guy picked 1st April because that is Easter day at present. However we have changed from the Julien Calendar to the Gregorian calendar and in 1752 we missed out 11 days to realign everything. There was no 3rd-13th of September in 1752.

My favourite is the Mayan prophecy. Very clever how they worked our that on dec 21st 2012 the sun would sit directly on both the galactic equinox and the Milkyway at the same time. A very rare event. At the exact same time, their long count gets to zero. Much more eloquent. Very cleverly worked out. Worth a read below.

I got a paper on this. They claimed that the world would end 7 days after the flood. A day to God is 1000 years. So -5012 + 7000 - 1 (to take into account the fact that year 0 isn't a year), = 2011. Then there was more Christian bullshit on the month and the day, and I forget what, but there's something in the bible to tell us why.

Well Genesis 7: 11 gives us the day and month of the deluge. Camping's date however for the deluge is well off, he seems to be extending the Septuagint. The Masoretic (which the the most accurate) actually dates the deluge to 2350BC, not 5012BC.

The Bible tells us though that the date for return of Christ can not be known by man.

Matthew 24:36 quite clearly states : ''No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Fatherů''

Those putting a date on this therefore fall under the ''false prophets'' (charlatans) the Bible tells us about.

Matthew 24: 24  ''For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets... they shall deceive the very elect''
