Of course! I repent everyday! As for repenting because of I thought he was coming back, for what reason when I'm doing exactly what he said to do? I didn't cast a date when I believed he was returning. I said I think he is coming back this year. And I said I wasn't 100. It's just speculation based on many different factors and observations of the chaos going around the planet.



Why I pay attention the Lord's return? Because he said so.

Matthew 24:42
"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Stop twisting my words - repent for you deceptive and lying ways. And your smilie face does not absolve you of this tactic.

You have taken my criticism and turned it into a generalization about telling you to stop paying attention to the Lord's return - BS - you were very specific in when this was going to take place (2011) based on some fuzzy bible math and then you try to make me out to be the one with the problem.

My point was very clear about what to stop paying attention too - a child could understand.

But the Bible says it will be sealed up UNTIL THE END TIMES. I don't know if I believe it will happen in 2011, but I do believe that at the end it will be possible to know if you know what to look for. I also am not sure it will happen exactly the way we think it will.

I saw the billboard from a certain Christian organization that says the "Bible" garauntees that May 21, 2011 is the day... and right under it is the web address... of course. Ok... "the Bible garauntees it hunh"? Sure. It's statements like that that will turn even more people away from God if nothing happens. Of course nothing will happen on that date, in my opinion.

Except that Israel is not recognized as a nation today but rather as a "state". Words matter here and there is a difference between the two. Wikipedia and any encyclopedia will tell you this.


Please refer to Genesis 32:28 to discover what Israel symbolizes.

1948 (beginning of prophetic timeline when Israel became a nation) + 70 years (a generation) = 2018 (second coming of Christ) - 7 (years of tribulation) = 2011( the rapture of the church)!!!! I'm not 100% but I think it is!!!!

Get your houses in order, repent for your sins, and pray that you are counted worthy to escape with him because he is returning!! You don't want to be left behind!! Disasters and catastrophes will keep happening and the ungodly world will keep wondering why. But we as children of God know why! I don't know about you guys but I feel like we are in on some huge secret that the abominable world knows nothing about! Yes, I am awaiting that special day we take out very last flight in the sky. How amazing! Do you wonder what it will feel like our last day on Earth?! I can't even imagine what day that is or what it will feel like! I do figure that before he returns, it will be a dark and cloudy day full of thunderstorms. Probably a worldwide thunderstorm. Based on testimonies I have heard, many people have said that in their visions they saw dark black clouds and a funnel formed for the saints to be raptured in. How exciting is that?!

You know, usually I give no credence or attention to prophecized dates or years such as May 21, 2011. But I was recently watching a video where an old man was pointing out this simple prophetical timeline I failed to miss all these years. It's so simple and easy and most importantly makes total sense. The prophecized events are already happening. BEEN happening. So there's nothing left to my knowledge that would stop Jesus from coming. Perhaps God is waiting for more unsaved to come to him before he tells Jesus it's time. I don't know. Your guess is as good as mine. But we need to be ready. Our families need to be ready. We need to spread the word! I urge you to search the internet for various testimonies on Christians on who had visions and dreams of the rapture. There's something to learn from each testimony. And the common theme is that Jesus is returning soon. As a Christian, you cannot forget this basic golden rule he said to watch for. We DO NOT want to be left behind. God bless to you all!!

Nobody is going anywhere.

The "man made rapture" will come and go.

You're stuck here till you die.

Sunday when you're at church, remember that.

I agree the rapture will not happen Sat, but it will happen, the Bible teaches this, so remember that if you're still here when a lot a people are suddenly gone.

You are the one who is wrong thinking your going to be saved without repentance. Your allegations make no sense. I'm not a prophet. Never said I was one. You just jumped in on what Herefornow called me and seem to think that's what I said I was when I didn't. Nobody damns anyone to Hell or to be left behind. The world does themselves when they decide to reside in sin and serve Satan. That is why God flooded the whole Earth the first time around and only repentant Noah and his family survived. I do not choose to live by the world's standards or corrupt morals. I choose God. And I'm not going to lie on his behalf by telling new believers that there is no punishment for their sins. That is why most people on Earth will be getting left behind. Repent for your sins, believe Jesus is the son of God and he died on the cross for your sins, and you will be taken to Heaven and not left behind. It's really that simple to be saved and all found in the Bible. But of course you think I made all of this up for my own sick pleasure and enjoyment.
And all of this sounds like a Greek myth yet no one bats an eye?

HMMM!!! I thought they were speaking by the Holy Spirit? I guess those parts are not inspired - just opinions. Next time I need to seperate the two I'll come to your most noble interpretations. When it says that the gospel has gone into the whole world and to every nation and that this was spoken by an apostle, filled with the Holy Spirit, recorded in the inspired infallable Word we are to suppose a personal human mistake or opinion, without any indication other than an after the fact ad-hoc realization that they were wrong. But When Jesus speaks that the gospel must start at Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and then to the utter most parts of the world he refers it to what we would think of today.

It never ceases to amaze me of the interpretive power of wishful thinking.
