The World Ends on May 21st Part 2

Just thought I would add this link from CNN’s religion blog. It gives great background into the folks traveling the country proclaiming that their leader has figured out that the world will end on Saturday.

Admittedly  you have to admire their willingness to forsake everything to get out the message that they think is true, even when the Bible is so clear that they cannot possibly know when Jesus is coming back. It also makes me wonder what is wrong with so many other Christians who do know that Jesus is coming back someday, maybe even May 19th or 20th, yet we go on about our lives as if that is insignificant.  I think the point of Jesus not letting us in on the day of His return is so that we treat everyday like it could be. We treat everyday as a chance to love our neighbor more, serve them in Jesus name, and look up in anticipation of His revealed glory.

Come Saturday morning I fully expect to be on my back porch having breakfast with my wife, reading Hebrews Chapter 4, doing some final prep for the two classes I teach on Sunday morning, and trimming a few Bonsai plants. I also suspect I will take more than the normal causal look into the clouds, just in case.

    Although 6pm hasn’t come yet, I don’t suspect we’ll be raptured out of here today. It breaks my heart to know that people follow blindly without reading their scriptures for themselves.

    I do like what you said about living each day as if it may be the day Jesus does return. The world would probably be different if we did. God bless you.

    Agree, Jesus may come any time and no one will be able to predict the exact date. So prepare yourself as if He will come any moment any day and can be today
