No, that’s not a typo or a repost. Harold Camping is admitting that he had the details wrong, but he wont admit that he’s totally wrong. He claims that October 21 is the “real” day of destruction. It’s for really real this time people. Maybe.
Camping says that God did come, and he has judged us. Claiming that we have all been judged spiritually and are now awaiting either destruction or deliverance on October 21st. So all his followers believe that it doesn’t matter what they do in the following months, because God has already judged them and the world is going to end anyway.
Do you see anything dangerous here?
If I told you that you could do anything you wanted today and God would still send you to heaven, and that if you get caught doing it you won’t stay in prison very long because the world is going to end tomorrow, what would your flesh recommend you do?
Needless to say, I won’t be sweaty in October. Harold will be, but I won’t. As Leonard Ravenhill put it, “Someday some simple soul will come along, read the Bible and believe it, and put all the so-called learned bible scholars to shame.”
“The first time He came, He entered by a woman’s womb. And no one saw Him enter.
The next time He comes, ‘every eye Shall see Him!’
The first time He came as a Lamb.
The next time He is coming as the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
The first time He came to redeem.
The next time He is coming to reign.
The first time He came to die.
The next time He is going to raise the dead!
The first time men asked, ‘Where is He that is born king of the Jews?’
The next time He is coming as the King of kings!
The first time He got a crown of thorns.
The next time He will get a crown of glory and of gold (Rev. 14:14).
The first time He came in poverty, to a stable.
The next time He is coming in power.
The first time He had an escort of angels.
The next time ‘He cometh with ten thousand of his saints.’
The first time He came in meekness.
The next time He is coming in majesty!”
