Matthew 24:36, Harold Camping, Judgment Day and Jeremiah 29:11

Well, I just noticed a billboard the other day more or less stating that Harold Camping has again figured out the date for Judgment Day, apparently on May 21st.  I doubt it, but it will still be interesting to see what happens, particularly because I'm still between jobs right now, and that would solve the problem of getting the mortgage paid this month.

I write most of these blogs as a storage place for theological notes and musing - mostly for myself - but on the off-chance someone is visiting and reading this, I would greatly appreciate prayer for my recent interviews.  There is that uncertainty to the future (unless you're Harold Camping) in which you don't know what God's plans are, but instead of silly predictions, I take comfort in passages such as Jeremiah 29:11, that gives the assuranc:

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

  1. My wife and I listened to quite a bit of his radio shows back in the 90's, and we got to calling him, Mr. September. For that was the month when the rapture was supposed to take place back then. Just between you and me, I wouldn't mind if it happened tomorrow--TODAY, even!
