Harold Camping, the Christian broadcaster who boldly announced that the world would end on May 21, only to later say that he was "flabbergasted" when the rapture did not occur, is now telling everyone to get ready for the real rapture, which is set to occur on Oct. 21 – probably.
Some time after being released from a nursing home in June after suffering a stroke, Camping, released an audio message on Family Radio's website saying, "We would have not been able to be used [by God] to bring about the tremendous event that occurred on May 21 of this year, which probably [will] be finished out on Oct. 21 that's coming very shortly. That looks like it will be ... the final end of everything."
Camping, not sounding quite as strong in his voice or as confident about his rapture prediction in his audio message, expressed gratitude for prayers from supporters (read a transcript of Camping's audio message). more >>
Christian evangelist and end times author Hal Lindsey believes a push by the Palestinian Authority for statehood recognition by the United Nations is tied to biblical prophecies and is more proof that Christians are living in the "last days."
Since Israel's declaration of statehood the nation has faced "many lethal threats to its very existence" that are consistent, with "the prophecies of Zechariah, Ezekiel, and Isaiah all seem[ing] closer to fulfillment in these 'Last Days,'" Lindsey says in a report on his website.
In a Sept. 16 article published on "The Hal Lindsey Report," Lindsey refers to demonstrations in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt where hundreds of people rallied against the military's Emergency Law. The policy has been described by Amnesty International as the biggest threat to human rights in the country since President Hosni Mubarak was ousted, according to The Washington Post. more >>
Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, will be starting a new sermon series on Sept. 11 titled, "Twilight's Last Gleaming," in hopes of getting the message across to Christians that "we are not going to save America."
The sermon series kicking off on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks is actually based on a book of the same name to be released in January 2012 by Worthy Publishing. The book's subtitle, "How to make America's last days your best days," is actually meant to be encouraging, according to Jeffress.
Jeffress, who has authored several books and often appears on major news networks to provide a Christian perspective on various issues, spoke with The Christian Post about his new sermon series and book. more >>
Prominent leaders of two Baptist churches have special sermons planned for Sunday, Sept. 11, which is the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks against the United States. One sermon promises to discuss America's "inevitable collapse" while the other is to be delivered by Dr. Tim LaHaye, known for his popular end times book series.
It has not yet been confirmed to The Christian Post whether LaHaye would indeed be speaking on the issue of the end times during his appearance at First Baptist Church of Atlanta on Sept. 11.
CP left a message with Tim LaHaye Ministries Wednesday morning, but no response was received by press time. more >>
Is it a coincidence that an earthquake that struck Virginia and rattled dozens of other states occurred amid Pat Robertson's "Sign of the Times" special on the "700 Club?"
"Are we in the last days?" Robertson asked during Wednesday morning's live online streaming of the "700 Club" as he continued his teaching on the "Sign of the Times."
"The earth moved," Robertson said ominously, describing the earthquake that struck Virginia Tuesday, "and then it moved all over this part of the country." more >>
A man-made lake in Texas has almost entirely dried up but what's catching attention is the deep, blood-like color of the water that is left.
Photos of the OC Fisher Reservoir in San Angelo State Park that began circulating fishing forums last week have conjured up apocalyptic images, with one preacher from Indiana saying the lake is another sign of the end times.
"I'm not saying that this Texas lake is these scriptures in Revelation but what I am saying is the Bible prophecies are slowly fulfilling themselves in the midst of an end time revelation – that we need to be right, we need to be saved, we need to be born again and ready to meet the coming king," said Paul Begley of Community Gospel Baptist Church in Knox. more >>
