Title & Purpose

Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble:

for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand, Joel 2:1.

Rapture to take place this Saturday!!

According to Harold Camping the rapture will take place on Saturday 21st May at around 6 pm.

Belfast Telegraph - World will end this Saturday, May 21, warns preacher Camping
The Independent - US preacher warns end of the world is nigh: 21 May, around 6pm, to be precise

It doesn't take a great deal of Bible knowledge to see the folly of such claims. As sure as anyone sets a date or time for the rapture you can be sure it is wrong. So says the Word of God: 
Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Earthquakes etc are not a sign of the end. It never says this in the Bible anywhere. There have always been earthquakes etc in the world and they will continue. We are not to mistake their occurrence for end time events:
Matthew 24:5-8, For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled:
for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 
All these are the beginning of sorrows

As pointed out in these reports Harold Camping has 'form' on this. He announced that the world would end in September 1994. It didn't happen! 

There is no rapture taught in the Bible, never mind a rapture on saturday 21st May 2011!

And I think this is some of the LEAST serious false teaching of Camping.

Such a pity for those that follow(ed)/believe(d) him, may God bless them and help them and bring them to repentance.
