April 21, 2011
listened to Family Radio at 11:45AM on April 21st and could not
believe what I heard as one of Harold Camping’s devotees read a statement
in defense of the coming judgment day on May 21, 2011. I was told some
time ago that some of the staff at Family Radio really believes what
Camping is telling them about judgment day on May 21, 2011, and it is
because of this very devoted group that the rest are not able to rebuke
Camping and stop him in his folly.
previous update on Family Radio, I told you that Camping has a contingency
plan which will be implemented on May 22nd. Craig Hulsebos is
the official voice of Family Radio when it comes to asking people to
donate money to the corporation and he has kept a low profile when it
comes to talking about May 21st. I was told by his personal
secretary a few months ago, that he is “walking a fine line” and my
prediction is that Camping is keeping Hulsebos clean so that he can be
part of the recovery effort.
obvious that Camping has been hammered for his book 1994?, and the man
that read the statement on April 21st defending Harold stated that since
the book had a question mark after its title, it was proof that Harold
Camping never actually predicted that Jesus would come back in 1994.
Whoever was responsible for this statement is a very slick spin doctor
because he used Scripture taken out of context to defend Camping.
According to the reader of this statement, all people prior to 1988 who
predicted a certain date for the return of Christ were false prophets. But
then in 1988 God released the revelation on the exact date of Jesus’
return and Harold Camping is the only one to understand that. Looking at
the evidence that Harold gives in his book, 1994?, and the books, “I Hope
God Will Save Me,” (2007) “We Are Almost There,” (February 2008) and, “To
God Be The Glory!,” (October 2008) it becomes clear that Camping does not
have a special revelation from God, instead, he is rehashing all the
previous calculations and speculations over the years.
of the dates and events he refers to as his reference points have been in
the Bible for thousands of years. This isn’t a new revelation from God but
Camping’s own speculations. The man reading the statement on April 21st
lied on several occasions and here are two of the lies:
Prior to 1988 there was no
information given to man as to when Jesus was to return, but after 1988,
it was revealed to Harold.
Harold never stated in his book 1994?
that Jesus was to return in 1994.
me now quote from Camping’s book, “1994?” in which he stated on page 495:
“We must conclude that the return of Christ
will not be in 2011 A.D. but some years before this. How much earlier than
2011 A.D. Jesus will come depends entirely on how much God shortens the
final tribulation period.”
page 505 Camping wrote this:
“Because God’s timetable for the existence
of the earth is tied to the time required to save all the elect, the world
will be brought to an end seventeen years earlier than 2011A.D. This
avoids the possibility of the earth continuing beyond the time required to
save the elect. For the sake of the elect the perfect 7000 years will be
reduced by seventeen years because there will be no one left who is to
become saved during those seventeen years.”
page 531 Camping also wrote the following:
“Last Day and return of Christ sometime on
or between September 15, 1994: Beginning of 1994, is Jubilee year and
September 27, 1994 Last Day of the Feast of Tabernacles.”
Harold Camping and his spin doctors are banking that most people listening
to Family Radio in 2011 do not have access to his book 1994? Therefore
they are misquoting his writing in order to say that has never predicted a
certain time when Jesus was to come back.
truth is that Harold Camping is a false prophet who erroneously predicted
the return of Jesus in 1994 and same will happen on May 21, 2011.
man reading the statement on April 21st echoed Camping when he
said, “We know for sure that May 21st, 2011 is the final
day on this earth.” Camping was also sure in 1992 and he told his
audience just so. Most likely the majority of the listeners he had prior
to 1994 are no longer with him and he has gathered a new group in the last
man reading the statement then began to tell the listeners not to pay
attention to pastors who have rejected the date of May 21st. He
said that there are two groups of people, God’s elect and the unsaved.
Everyone who has rejected the date of May 21st was labeled as
“unsaved,” these are people who are blinded by the Devil. Only Camping and
his enlightened followers have the truth. In closing he asked this
“What can you do? First of all, cry out to
God for salvation, and secondly, be ready for May 21st. Life on
earth will cease on that day.”
Harold Camping and his devotees have boxed themselves in to a corner with
no point of return. The propaganda is steadily increasing as Camping is
down to the last 30 days and there is no way that he can recover on May 22nd
with integrity, but you can rest assured that he will come back with that
droning voice that there was a change in heaven and he has been given more
time to get more people saved. A new date will be set and many of the
devotees will fall for yet another lie.
According to my source, Family Radio has millions of dollars on hand from
sales of stations, so there is no need to ask for money if they really
believed that the last day of broadcasting will be May 21st,
and yet Craig Hulsebos continues to come on the air every day to ask for
more money. It is sad that the devotees are so blinded that they cannot
see the charade.
top off the madness, someone has composed a song with a Hebrew style of
music where a man and later a woman sings that May 21st is the
last day on earth and that Israel must prepare for judgment. This song was
played shortly after the man reading the statement was finished. I wonder
if Camping is going to tell the staff to play this song May 22nd?
Harold Camping and his devotees are burning their bridges as they state
daily that there is no doubt, May 21st, 2011 is the final day
on the earth.
the radio listeners rally around Craig Hulsebos on May 22nd
when he tries to save the burning wreck of Family Radio?
will Camping and his followers go when they find they are still on earth
and Jesus didn’t show up?
will the devotees do who sold their homes, quit their jobs and traveled
around the country in motor homes and trailers proclaiming that Jesus is
coming back on May 21st?
will the devotees do who maxed out their credit cards, falsely believing
they will never have to pay them back?
is Harold Camping going to tell them?
