The rapture is the phenomen described in e.g. Matt 24:30-31, Luke 17:34-37 and 1 Thess 4:17. And as you can see in this great rapture-prank. Its said to be the first step right before doomsday, and the worlds end. If the Bible is true it may can happen anytime. But it's a big discussion how the Bible's endtime prophecies should be interpreted and how it eventually will play out. But the few american christian's believing in doomsday today, have got massive critics from mainstream christianity because of e.g. Matt 24:36-44.
It has been a huge worldwide hype about the todays judgement day.
But even if the world had much fun about the may21doomsday-believing christians, there was actually peoples honestly believing in this weird interpretation of the Bible. Peoples who've left their homes, jobs etc just to warn fellow americans about judgement day. Peoples who've spent all their money on doomsday-campaigns. Peoples who may get a really hard life afterwords. Peoples who may will be too ashamed to participate more in the society. Peoples who will go through a big crisis in faith and vision. I hope people will take care of them even how much fool they've maked of them selfs. But I think their leaders deserve the critique tomorrow.
harold camping false prophet
Here's a story from New York-times about some childrens having a hard time because of their fanatic 21maydoomsday-parents. This comment is also worth reading. And if you was a 21maydoomsday-believer, here's a guide for you to what to do now.
After it didnt happen anything may 21, Harold Camping who started it all has postponed in until october 21. Yes, it is just as stupid as it sounds.
Let's see if we survive oct 21, and dec 21, 2012 too! But even if I dont think the judgement day can be predicted, Im at least prepared for the apocalypse if christianity is true. I hope you to are, if not I recommend to watch this.
"Harold couldn't be more right. The end of the world is coming, we just don't know the time of it." says Will Graham to The Christian Post.
