What we need is an end of "the word" then maybe the world will spin on and our species can evolve.

Just wanted to let you know - today I received my 2013 Social Security Stimulus Package. It contained two tomato seeds,

cornbread mix, two discount coupons to KFC, an 'Obama Hope & Change' bumper sticker, a prayer rug, a machine to blow

smoke up my azz and a 'Blame it on Bush' poster for the front yard. The directions were in Spanish.

Yours should arrive soon.

It's true that the Bible says not even the Son or Angels in heaven know the day or the hour...but it also says to watch for the signs and be prepared. Live each day with love in your heart and you'll have nothing to fear.

The worst part of this for the doomsayers is that when they finally get it right they won't be able to say, "I told you so!"

People who put an exact date on the end of life as we know it, do so with more interest in self and to gain attention then they do saving souls and telling the truth of the word of God. The Lord clearly said in the Bible that no man knows the exact moment that Christ will return so anyone who puts a date on the end of life on earth is NOT someone who walks with God and is a true Born Again Christian.  Next.... The mistake often people make is that they dismiss the truth of the Word just because many men decide to put a date and don't follow Christ.  In fact God also warns in the later day's to NOT follow after any man who points and says there is Christ.  Lastly... can we prove that we are living in the end times even though the Bible says no man knows the exact moment ?  Yes... God warns of the sign of the times. Nation shall rise against nations, there shall be increased earthquakes in diverse places, there shall be a coming together of nations as never been before in history. Money shall be worth nothing and a one world order/leader shall rise as the nations come together.  There is NO DOUBT we ARE living in the end times... we see this happening before our very eyes in the world, a one world order is developing fast. 

 

Do not follow or listen to a person who puts a date on the end of the world as we know it, however don't be foolish like the masses of the unsaved who will go on sinning and think the word of God is not truth.  Repent and become Born Again in spirit, turn to Jesus before it's to late and rejoice.  If you think this is bad what is happening in the news now, it's going to get a whole lot worse.  Get right with Christ and know that we are living in the end times!

The article fails to mention evangelist Howard Camping. Camping's recent predictions failed to materialize as well. All in God's time.

How can you have a list like this and NOT include Harold Camping, who's been wrong about the end of the world no less than 4 times.

The end of the world will come when you pass on to the next realm.   So live each day to the fullest.  Surround yourself with people who make you laugh and feel good.   Run naked into the ocean!!!!!
