The end of the world didn’t happen… it rolled through 6pm in New Zealand where it was supposed to start and nothing. Surprise? Nope…
No man knows the day or the hour. Matthew 24:36
And what about all the people that are more now jaded and distrusting of the bible? And the fact that they use this as just one more apparent evidence that the bible is incorrect to rationalize their decision to reject Christ?
Sorry for the LONG quote, but I’ve decided, .. .or more accurately come to the realization that Gods word can speak for itself. Man has no reason to believe me, I need to be quoting scriptures more. The word of God is living and breathing and God will speak to those who read it.
2Pe 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as [they were] from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
2Pe 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
2Pe 3:10¶But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up
So Harold Camping, the man behind this either hasn’t read his bible thoroughly or has other motives,… not sure what, and I suppose I can’t speak for any of the reasons behind it. Suffice to say that God was on top of this thousands of years ago, actually from the beginning of time. He knew people like this would come out of the wood work as the true day got closer.
Satan is smart, super smart, he knows all of this will turn some away from Gods word and its unfortunate but its not something we didn’t know would happen. It says it right in the bible…
In other news
the peace process is all but lost, some big statements by Obama giving power to the palestinians and his words totally rejected by Israel (RE: 1967 borders). The whole peace process was just totally halted, total impasse. What does this sort of thing lead to? It leads to what it speaks of in the bible of a strong leader ‘pushing’ through a peace deal regardless of opinions on either side, likely by some kind of force, political or otherwise. Being that the whole peace process is all but totally stalled, it will be interesting to see what happens with the palestinian request to the UN for a state and unilateral state declaration.
On the Island today
its rainy and grey. Was a very pleasant day yesterday, we went for a walk at lunch across the road to the cenotaph, 2 apple trees reside there and lots of green grass for fuzzy to crawl around on. Though the ground and grass was quite damp from all the ran. none the less, it was nice to get out and wander on one of those ‘room temperature’ days where you aren’t conscious of the temperature. Not sure what we’ll do today, hoping it dries up some so I can go for a bike ride. Oh and we have plans to purchase and plant an Apple tree in honour of fuzzys birthday. Hoping we can get to that today as well. Twill be a great saturday regardless of weather.
