Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!

 

 

 

Maybe you've already encountered the literature: pamphlets, subway ads, billboards on the side of the highway. "Judgment Day is coming" reads one billboard, which features a man praying in silhouette against a sunset backdrop. These are the works of a peculiar breed of Christian activists who've taken to the road to preach their belief in the fast-approaching End of Days. The self-appointed harbingers are not tied to any particular church -- they claim organized religion has been corrupted by the devil -- but rather to Internet- and radio-based ministries. And their lone mission is to tell anyone and everyone that the end of days is May 21. That's when, they insist, God's true believers will be lifted into heaven and saved, during a biblical event widely referred to as the Rapture.

 The finer points of Christian eschatology have long been the subject of dispute (not to mention the inspiration for movies and books, like the blockbuster "Left Behind" series). Though mainstream churches reject the the notion that doomsday can be predicted by any man, fringe scholars continue to work feverishly pinpointing the moment of the final, divine revelation. And one such man -- 89-year-old radio host Harold Camping -- has been at the game for decades.

 In the early '90s, Camping published a book titled "1994?," which claimed judgment day would arrive in September of that year. When confronted with such a staggering anticlimax -- the world, after all, kept on spinning -- Camping chose not to be discouraged, but to learn from his mistakes. (He hadn't considered the Book of Jeremiah, he says.) A civil engineer by trade, Camping went back to the drawing board and continued to crunch the numbers, before arriving at the adamant determination that Rapture would come on May 21, 2011. He began to spread the word through his broadcasting network, Family Radio, in 2009, and quickly built up a fervid following.

Oops, End of Days is May 21,2011  I don't know what happened to the 1 in title.

Hi James,

Yes, I know there are many looking at Scripture and the signs of the times and trying to come up with a date. There is also one about the Jupiter Effect in 2012. For me, looking at Isreal, God's timeclock, the time is close. But close is relative. I am warned not to set dates, but be aware of the signs of the times.

I approach it this way; I am 60. If God doesn't come back in my time, some time in the near future, I will go to meet Him. I am in good health and I hope to work until at least 70 and live to a ripe old age. But I have only limited control over that. I know my checkout time is coming, I just don't know when.

I read a quote on twitter, "I am not overly concerned about my future, if I have purposed my present." For me, that means staying focused in the big picture with Jesus at the center of my circle. It's a day by day process. I appreciate my employer and do the best I am capable of including time management.

I work at being cordial with coworkers, managers and customers. I look for ways to give my day value. For me, that comes from taking classes everyday with the Holy Spirit.

Noah warned for I think 120 years. That was his calling. The joke was on him until the door shut. I would rather share the goodness of the Lord, but some are called to share the consequences of leaving this world without Christ.

"All things [good and bad] work together for those who love the Lord and those called according to His Will and purpose." For me, I don't pay any attention to the dates others are setting, "Lord, teach them and teach me." I just try to pay attention to what I am supposed to be doing. They are making mistakes just like I am and the Lord will teach us both.

But those are good questions James, Should we be date setting? and Are we there? Movies like Left Behind are showing a perspective of Revelation's last seven years. Will they unfold that way? I don't know. But I think the way they unfold will catch most of us by surprise. For me, the most important thing is if we have Jesus in the center of our circle, it won't affect our destination, regardless how they unfold.

I think these are the best of times and the worst of times. "Where sin abounds, Grace does much more abound" or something like that. It all depends on our perspective. I pray for you everyday. I pray for Kingdom Insight, everyday. I pray for my family, my workplace and my prayer list, everyday. Not for a pat on the head, but grateful He has allowed me a small part in the Great Commission and the Final Harvest.

Yesterday, I commented on a Yahoo news article about New York Times reporting on a study about pharmaceuticals. It was a snide remark. The Lord reminded me, "He that is without sin, cast the first stone." and "Do good for those that spitefully use you." I tried to find the article again, to recomment, but it rotated on through, so I repented and won't do that again.

I didn't sound like a Christian, I sounded condescending. That is not the example I want to share. I am working on having less disciple Peter moments. The difference between a Christian and a nonChristian is not flaws and mistakes, we all have them. It's having Jesus say, "Mark, do you love Me? Feed my sheep." Don't be kicking the unruly sheep in the field...

So, that's my take, James.

Have a great day!

Mark

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mark,

 Glad to hear your not a date setter for the end times. A fairly huge percent of Christians have believed they were living in the end times for the past 2000 plus years. Of course all were wrong. I feel pretty confident May 21st will come and go just as it has in the past.

 

 I did not watch the Left behind movie.I read the first 6 or 7 books in the series, the first few were good reading but IMO the author was dragging out the story to capitalize on the popularity of the books to make more money. It showed in the writing,as they were junk.

 

Matthew 24:36

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

 

This verse is confusing for me.  Jesus is God but he don't know when the end is yet only God knows the date of the end. I'm like What?????

Hi James,

Thank you for that well written response. I agree, that is a deep mystery. There is also something about after this completed sequence of events, Jesus will turn it all back over to the Father. We could get a whole lot of eyebrows raised with this one.

I love Jesus, but I wonder how the relationships inter-relate. We could get a lot of good response, James, but we would have to brace ourselves to be blasted.

Have a great day!

Mark

 Mark,

 LOL, Blasted, that's a good one. No worries I ready.

 From the Denver Post. "Judgment Day May 21" debate is nearly over

 

The end is near.

By the end of the week, people will quit talking about the billboards proclaiming: "Judgment Day May 21."

The billboards come with a biblical guarantee. But one way or the other, the suspense is almost over.

The doomsday ad campaign, on billboards and at bus stops coast to coast, is courtesy of Family Radio, a California-based nonprofit Christian network.

The leader is Boulder-born, 89-year-old Harold Egbert Camping.

The campaign also launched an armada of colorful end-times vans and RVs, of which at least one has been circling Denver's Civic Center like a vulture.

"The End of the World is Almost Here," vehicle inscriptions announce.

Undaunted by the lack of support 

from the religious mainstream, the Family Radio website offers up Camping's mathematical formulas as proof that May 21 is the big day. (It's a rather complicated series, which is why Camping once incorrectly picked a day in September 1994 for the Rapture.)

 

The Rapture entails God plucking up true believers into heaven. Camping's followers, whose numbers aren't known, estimate this will include about 3 percent of the world population, roughly 207 million.

Those left behind will hunker down or slug it out until God destroys the world five months later, according to Camping, on Oct. 21.

Until then, it's going to be hell on Earth, Camping has said.

Not a new prediction

The Rapture will begin May 21 with a great earthquake on the Pacific Rim, and everyone's world will begin to end at 6 p.m. local time, the prediction says.

"I penciled it in, but am really planning on missing the event, being descended from a long line of people who have survived every end-time, end-of- the-world prophecy since A.D. 33," Stephen Stanley wrote on The Post's Facebook page.

Nevertheless, belief in Judgment Day and the return of Jesus is part of mainstream Christianity. A 2010 Pew Research Center

A billboard warns that the world will end on May 21, 2011. (Denver Post | Joe Murphy)
poll found that 41 percent of Americans believe Jesus will return within the next 40 years.

Yet no less an authority than Jesus said that no one knows the time of his return.

"But that hasn't stopped people from putting it on their calendars ever since," said associate professor of religion Doug Weaver of Baylor University. "During times when natural disasters abound, or when the financial picture is particularly bleak, forecasts of the Rapture are more likely to surface."

The Rapture is a moneymaker, Weaver said, inspiring enough books, movies and toys to sink Noah's ark.

Camping uses the Bible to date the creation of the world at 11,013 B.C. and the Flood at 4990 B.C., or 7,000 years ago (because there is no Year Zero).

"God ... was declaring that sinful mankind would have 7,000 years to find refuge in the salvation provided by Jesus Christ," Camping says.

He has learned from his reading of Daniel 12:9 and Revelation 22:10 that the Bible contains an encrypted calendar, he said, and all the evidence points to May 21. He swears he has it right this time.

The Judgment Day May 21 billboard's inclusion of a time slot for Family Radio's call-in program, "6:30-8:30 p.m.," led "Westword" magazine to quip that perhaps it should be called "Judgment Happy Hour."

Not so harmless

Camping, a native Coloradan, moved to California at a young age. He earned a B.S. in engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, according to his website's bio. He is based in nearby Oakland.

Camping was a member of the Christian Reformed Church until 1988 but now teaches that all churches are false and must be abandoned.

"On May 21, 1988, God finished using the churches and congregations of the world," Camping writes. "The spirit of God left all churches, and Satan, the man of sin, entered into the churches to rule at that point in time."

No wonder most clergy don't agree with him.

Atheist groups say they will "party, party" on May 21 and beyond. American Atheists president David Silverman said: "We've been here before. There have been hundreds of failed predictions like this throughout history."

However, the group doesn't find the effect that religious prophecies can have on "the gullible" to be funny.

"Unfounded predictions can push some people over the edge," said American Atheist spokesman Blair Scott. "These people can end up hurting themselves and others."

News outlets have reported that some faithful have dropped out of school, quit their jobs or blown their savings. But 130 Post readers responding to an informal poll online about the looming date largely dismissed it.

Lisa DeGraffenried said she was planning to watch a movie, "The Rapture," and share a potluck of "last-meal" selections.

Camping is still spreading the word through Family Radio's 140 stations. He says that while he is the network's president and general manager, Jesus is chief executive.



 The only part I agree with is that,the Rapture is a moneymaker.

 

 I feel sorry, for all the ones that dropped out of collage,quit their jobs,wasted their life savings all because one guy says the world will end for he alone cracked the bible secret date for the end of the world.

Hi James,

I haven't heard much about this. I think we all have a tangent mentality at times. We focus a very narrow focus and miss the whole. Flawed creatures do stupid things at times.

The thing that has caught my eye is Obama agreeing with and insisting on dividing Jerusalem. He has good speech writers. It sounded so smooth. None of it was based in reality, but I think he must have gotten some speech writers from the same place Bill Clintion did.

The Palestinians aren't capable of building a nation. They are tribal. They have a feudal mentality. The only thing that stops them from killing each other is a common enemy, Israel.

Any time, one has a god they believe is going to give them seven virgins for killing their neighbor and using their other neighbor as a human shield, they are in a destruct/self-destruct mode.

Their version of the end times is killing all non-muslims and anyone that disagrees with them, including other muslims. Without a strong hand government such as Saudia Arabia, they would all kill each other.

I believe Satan is trying to complete Hitler's Final Solution.

I believe this final unfolding is God's timeclock. How long before it all winds to a close? I have no idea. Will there be a pre-trib rapture or mid-trib rapture? I don't know. We will find many faithful, sincere Christians build a good case for each one, but for me, to sidestep the debate, I don't know.

That guy predicting a rapture is 89 years old. He doesn't have much time left either way. If Jesus is in the center of his circle, everything else will come out okay.

"He is here, He is there, He is in the desert..." We miss the point. Do what we can do while it is day.

We aren't allowed to take things at work, because it is easy to condemn something for self gain. So I was asked if I had any computers for a woman with three kids. I said no, but there are departments that would still give them to me if I had permission. So I was given permission as long as I got a written statement from the department with a name and phone number.

Now I have three computers for a woman with three boys, working for minium wage. It's not much. It's not earth shaking, but it is something I can do, right here, right now.

I was watching 'Joni And Friends' , it about kids with disabilities. There was a young girl who grew up helping children with disabilities. She has spent her whole young life befriending them, encouraging them and helping them in any way she can. She is one of God's hidden treasures in the field.

"Think Globally, Act Locally." It is a New Age statement, but the thought process is well worth considering. "What can I do, right here, right now?"

The end times thought process should do one thing: "Time is short; whatever good we would do, we should do it now."

Hope your day is good,

Mark

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Hello Mark,

 

  So you don't agree with Obama on having Israel go with pre-1967 borders? How about when George Bush jr administration was asking for the same thing? George Bush said the same thing on Apr. 4,2002 in his Bush Road Map for peace speech. He did not come out and say it.

 Well heres part of it. 

The proposal of Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, supported by the Arab League, has put a number of countries in the Arab world closer than ever to recognizing Israel's right to exist. The United States is on record supporting the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for a Palestinian state.

Israel has recognized the goal of a Palestinian state. The outlines of a just settlement are clear: two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side, in peace and security.

 

 Look it up, that proposal of Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has in it a pre-1967 border. The only real thing here is, Obama had the balls to say it openly in public. The last three US. Presidents administration  have all started peace talks using the pre-1967 border. Hmm, only Obama catches flak for it. Thanks Fox news. NOT!! 

 Hmm, the Palestinians are tribal and can't build a country. Whats up with the protestants and catholics still fighting then? IMO, all humans are tribal. Thats why we live in cities and towns and we have a long history of killing each other. We are animals.

 

That 72 virgin thing for killing in Islam takes a few verses  Out of Context to try to make Islam a bad Religion. I can do the same thing with the Bible.Easy as pie.

 Here watch this. She can do a better job then I in this. The video is down the page a bit.

http://islamgreatreligion.wordpress.com/2011/02/07/lesley-hazleton-...

 

The end times in the Quran are very much the same as in the Bible. Go on try and show me I'm wrong. I know I've studied the Quran far more then you.

 

Below is from:http://www.truthnet.org/islam/Islam-Bible/4Islambeliefs/index.htm

The subject of the end times is known as eschatology and covers both what happens after death and the events at the end of time.  Christianity and Islam share some similar beliefs, with much different outcomes.  For one, in Christianity and Islam, Jesus Christ plays a central role in the timing of end; Islam believes the return of Jesus will occur at the end, like Christians.  Muslims also believe in the resurrection of both the wicked and the righteous and the final judgment.  Islam and Christianity both proclaim an eternal dwelling of the lost and saved, in either Hell or Heaven (Paradise).  Therefore, in many ways, the structure of the end (eschatology) is similar to Christianity.

However, Christians and Muslims have two different views of what the final matter is.  Both views of the end, however, cannot be true since they are diametrically opposed to each other.  The Muslim Jesus descends and converts the world to Islam, kills the Jews, breaks crosses, declares himself a Muslim and gets married.  He dies after 40-years. 

 

That dooms day guy is, Harold Camping, the president of the Oakland, Calif.-based Christian radio broadcasting network Family Radio. Camping, who also made a failed doomsday prediction in 1994.

 

So gear up for 2012, everyone. The Mayan calendar is ending , and it's sure to be a wild ride. LOL

 

Till next time, James

Hi James,

The proof is in the pudding. I may disagree with other branches of Chrisianity or even other religions, but I am not running around with guns and rockets, looking for someone to blow up.  The Palestanians that have it the best are the ones living in Israel. They have a structured society, a job to go to, a home to come home to and not worried about Hezbollah or Hamas having a bad hair day.

The Bible is teaching me to love my neighbor and to do good for those who spitefully use me, not carry around rockets, ready to kill the first thing that moves. You shall know them by their fruits. That's true for each of us.

But the bottom line is rewards or consequences of choice. I choose to believe Israel is the Apple of God's Eye and any individual or nation plotting her destruction will have God to answer to, eternally.

I am going to continue to send as much as I can to On Wings Of Eagles>bringing Jews home from the North and Ethiopia. That is my choice. I will go into eternity with it.

We shall all see how this unfolds. We are the generation that other generations could only see from afar off. I don't know how God will deal with Muslims eternally. I know if I miss Jesus, I will go to Hell. But I have set my anchor. Others will have to decide about theirs.

I also know God's Word will unfold before our very eyes and all of Satan's shenanigans will fulfill God's Word. Israel will have her day or rest and each of us Gentiles will have made our choice to receive Jesus or not. It's the best of times and the worst of times. For me, I know time is short and I want to get as many deposits made in Accounts Receivable before it closes and Accounts Payable opens. But that is my choice. We each have to make ours.

You are so right about our government. Every president has been deceptive. But as individuals, they too, have to make their choice about their eternity. I am instructed to pray for those in power, that we may live quiet and peaceable lives. It's hard to do sometimes, until I remind myself how flawed I am and then it is easier to say, "Lord help them and help me. Teach them and teach me." God's Word will be fulfilled, so it is not about an individual, it's about prophecy unfolding before our very eyes.

It's so easy to get lost in politics, James. We miss the forest for the trees. Jesus is coming soon. At the sounding of the last trump... But more important, let him that is wicked, be wicked still, let him that is redeemed, be redeemed still... Time's up. This was only a test to see what we would choose. I'm going to a wonderful place and I can't wait. Heaven? Heaven on earth? Whereever, it's going to be awesome and no smell of sulfur.

Talk to ya, soon...

Mark

 

 

 

 

 

 

  How Sad. The Palestinian citizens living in Israel suffer greatly under discrimination from the Jews.

As part of its longstanding effort to "divide and rule", Israel identifies them as "Arab Israelis" rather than the Palestinian citizens of Israel to separate them from their kin in occupied territories.

The majority of them live in all-Palestinian towns and villages located in three main areas: in Galilee in the north, in the "little triangle" in the centre, and in the Naqab, or Negev, as it is referred to in Hebrew.

By referring to the desert area of Naqab as Negev, Israel tries to achieve a fait-accompli to erase what remains for the natives - a name.

Up to 220,000 indigenous Palestinians are displaced within Israel and not allowed to return to their homes, while 43 villages, where more than 70,000 Palestinians live, are not recognised by Israel.

 

"The Israeli state was established in 1948 on the ruins of the Palestinian people. It was done by force.

Negatively indentified as "non-Jews" in Israeli statistics, and subdivided into groups according to religious affiliation rather than nationality, Israeli law establishes Jewish nationality status as well as Israeli citizenship as differentiated levels of civil status.

The theocratic character of the Israeli legal system is shown by the fact that the enjoyment of full rights is determined by faith.

 

Every year, Israel demolishes dozens of houses belonging to Palestinian Bedouin in unrecognised villages in Naqab, leaving dozens of families without shelter.

 

As many as 78 per cent of them reject the idea Arab parties should join the government or any crucial political decision-making body. 

Other Israeli statistics show that half of Israel’s non-Jewish population is defined as "poor".

Among non-Jewish citizens, 51.2 per cent of the families were poor as opposed to 15.4 per cent of the Jewish families in 2006, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics.

As stated by the Law of Return, relatives of Palestinian citizens of Israel abroad cannot return to Israel, while Jews automatically qualify for citizenship.

 

 Your helping to pay for it.How sad indeed.

 

James

Hi James,

Paul hit the nail on the head about your Straw Man arguments, while ignoring reality. There are no people on the planet wanting peace and wanting to show peace, generosity and the good neighbor spirit than the Jewish people. But Scripture warns us to be wise as serpents, while going the extra mile to be harmless as doves.

This people you are talking about, serve a god of hatred, death, lust for feudal power [as well as lust for little girls], walk around with sacks over their heads with Katusha Rockets and machine guns looking for a Jew to kill.

The Hamas and Hezbollah have convinced and infiltrated the everyday Palestinian tribes or families or hold their family hostage, so that families do their bidding and they are religiously dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

But you know what James? Regardless of what you or I think, everything will unfold right on time and there is no stopping it. The Jewish deceased with have their day of rest and the Jewish living will go right on into their thousand years of blissful peace, while the followers of a Babylonian moon god, Satan in disguise, won't be there to torment them anymore. 

The rubber will meet the road and we will all go to the place of our choice. And it is not too far off. Yes! Come, Lord Jesus!

So you and the Hamas can rant all you want and it won't change a thing.

Having said that, I still like you and pray everyday for you and we will both rejoice in the wonderful place Jesus has prepared for us and we will thank him for not listening to our foolishness. I don't rant the way you do, but I do my own foolish things that I have to repent for and work at, like thinking I have to defend the Lord, when it is He that has to make sure I don't get sifted everyday. God is good.

Have a great day, James!

Mark

 

Hi James,

I am working hard at getting my buttons under control. On twitter, I post motivational quotes and have just now started finding ways to share the Lord without sounding like I am preaching.

I wish I hadn't said that bit about little girls. I read a little about sex trafficking and it seems some disappear into the Arab countries. But they disappear in a lot of countries, Us has its dark spots.

I certainly don't hate the Arab people and I don't know how many would love to make peace with Israel if the radicals weren't so imposing and financed foreign nations.

I often wonder who was the god of Ishmael. It wasn't Allah. Allah is a foreign god introduced to the Arab people, some 2600 years after Ishmael. And Abraham had a lot more sons than just Issac and Ishmael. And then enters Esau, so following the family trees it seems, would be extremely difficult. We know that Abraham went to Egypt, so how much intermarrying over time?

The Jewish people don't feel smug or supreme. Right now, they are scared to death, they are being squeezed into a cross-fire.

Scripture says, man's wrath will bring Glory to God and the rest He will restrain. Either that statement is true or it is false. No greater test case than this one. We shall all see. But for many, they will see it too late and like the rich man looking up at Lazarus. they will wish they had it to do over.

So I have made my choice, James. I love and pray for Israel. Scripture tells me to love Muslims. I try, but I hurt so much for Israel, I ask God to help me love them and to open their eyes.

If this weren't a spiritual war, it would be easy for the 'Muslim Brotherhood of Nations' to let Israel have their little piece of land and carve out a land for the Palestinians and help them build it with their oil trillions. All could live in peace and brotherhood. But Allah is not a god of goodwill. He is Satan, a god of rage, hatred for mankind and destruction of the Apple of God's Eye.

The final battle is getting close. How close? I don't know. But whatever good we would do, we ought to do it now.

Talk to ya later,

Mark
