Matthew 24:36,37 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Harold Camping of Family Radio is predicting that there is going to be a giant earthquake take place on May 21, making the earth inhabitable. There will be a rapture of God's chosen, also.
One follower haa spent $140,000 on signs that promote the predicted date. Mr. Camping predicted that the world was going to end in 1994. Have you heard of "88 reasons in 88"? I'm glad the Lord didn't return then. I wasn't saved ! We do not know the exact date, but we do know that He is coming soon. Date setters have come and gone, but only the Father knows, as was stated in our text. What does this mean in soul-winning ? It means we have to work for the Lord with such an urgency in these last days. We have to expect that His coming is soon ! Jesus said in John 9:4 " I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day; the night cometh, when no man can work. Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:1,2 : " But of the times and seasons, brethren, you have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night."
We believe in a pre-tribulation rapture. When the rapture takes place, the 7 year tribulation period will begin. I know that there are those who believe mid and post. Someone posted a comment that led to a channel that haa a video that promotes a post trib view. You can believe that if you want, but I believe that the bride of Christ is not going to take a beating before the wedding ! Sure, we may have to go through some things before the rapture, but we are not going through the great tribulation. We are to be looking up for our redemption draweth nigh !
We are to work the fields of souls, telling of His soon return ! May 21 may come and go, but that don't change the fact that Jesus is still coming !!!
