Self-made Religious Prophet
By David J. Stewart
a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to
pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath
spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.”
Harold Camping is WRONG AGAIN! Jesus didn't
return on May 21, 2011 as Harold Camping prophesied for so long. But what did happen is
that Harold Camping made a lot of money off his religious escapades...
Harold Camping marketed the Rapture
Self-made prophet with $117 million
radio network spreads worldwide message that the Apocalypse will begin
at 6 p.m. ET Saturday
(CBS News) LOS ANGELES - Some Americans
have extreme plans this weekend. A religious leader named Harold Camping
has convinced them the end of the world starts at 6 p.m. ET Saturday.
Most of the world's faithful do not believe the date is Judgment Day.
But as CBS News correspondent Bill Whitaker reports, it seems just about
everyone's seen the signs about the end of the world.
"May 21st, 2011 is the day of judgment," a Family Radio ad says. It's a
prophecy aggressively peddled by 89-year-old Harold Camping, a civil
engineer and self-taught Biblical sage.
"You and I are living at the time of the end of the world," Camping
End of World prediction disputed
He claims to have discerned the date from numerological calculations
revealed by his reading of the Bible. He spread his prophecy around the
world through broadcasts on his Family Radio network in 84 languages, on
RV caravans and on 1,200 billboards around the country.
So how much would Doomsday cost?
According to Camping, starting Saturday, "There's going to be a huge
earthquake that's going to make the big earthquake in Japan seem like a
Sunday school picnic."
"We want people to know that there are a few hours left to cry out to
him for mercy," says Ken Ronning.
Trumpeting the apocalypse doesn't come cheap. Family Radio spent as much
as $1 million on the billboard campaign. It can afford to. Camping's
radio network was worth about $22 million in 2002 -- by 2008 it was
valued at more than $117 million.
"It's a combination of a very new and rather peculiar way of reading the
Bible coupled with brilliant 20th century American marketing," says Rev.
Michael Seiler of St. Matthew's Episcopal Chruch.
It's become a cultural touchstone for late night comics. David Letterman
recently joked, "The No. 1 way to make the apocalypse for fun? More fun?
What's more fun than the apocalypse for God's sake?"
The end of the world has been predicted more than 100 times in the last
100 years. In fact, Harold Camping predicted the end once before - in
1994. This time he says he's certain.

The Family Radio demonic cult has raked in
untold tens-of-millions of dollars by falsely predicating the end of the
world. Oh, I assure you that the world as we know it will eventually end,
but not at the whim of some wayward televangelist or self-made prophet.
Harold Camping falsely predicted Christ's return in 1994 too...
Harold Camping Doomsday Prediction record: 0-2
Most people are naive and gullible because they
don't know God, because they don't search the Scriptures as Jesus taught in
John 5:39. Except a man be born-again Jesus said he cannot enter into the
kingdom of God (John 3:5). Most of the people in society today are as cattle
headed for the slaughter house, woefully ignorant concerning the truth about
nearly everything. The lying newsmedia and television networks go to great
lengths, spending massive amounts of money, and hiring the best sell-outs
money can buy to deceive the public, to keep them wandering in darkness, and
blinding them from the truth about everything, especially Biblical

prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are

say or do almost anything to benefit themselves, make more money, receive a
promotion, secure popularity, and do what's best for them. It is wickedness

Over the past 50-years Camping has gathered a worldwide following of
deceived souls. The cult has become very popular through the
(officially Family Stations, Inc.) broadcast over
the years since 1958. Harold Camping predicted the end of the world back in 1994.
Obviously he was wrong.
Camping has once again made a complete fool of
himself and his followers, who predicted doomsday on May 21,

We are living in the
Last Days when the Bible foretold that false prophets would abound.
The end times cult is propagating their lies at
WeCanKnow.com. This “We Can Know” group, don't KNOW!!! I'm sure they're
making a lot of money, filthy lucre, off this scheme. “Filthy lucre” is
money ill-gotten. This is certainly ill-gotten money made off religious
garbage and Satanic lies. Harold Camping has published a wacko book titled,
THE DOOMSDAY CODE. Here's what Amazon.com has to say about
...In The Doomsday Code, you will learn: • Why
and when the earth was created. • What happens to a
person who dies. • What the Bible reveals about
conditions in today's local congregations of Christian
churches, and what terrible thing happened there in
recent history. • How we can know that Judgment Day
begins on May 21, 2011 with a great earthquake, and that
the last day of the earth's existence will be October
21, 2011. • What will happen to you if God has not saved
you by May 21, 2011. • Which groups of people God will
punish more severely during the five months of Judgment
Day. • Whose countdown for the nation of Israel began on
May 14, 1948. • How we can turn back our calendar to
determine the date of the Crucifixion. The author is
retired and lives in New York City.
WOOOO, I'm scared. Just kidding! Biblically,
there is no significance to ANY DATES. Jesus plainly taught that
NO MAN knoweth the DAY nor the HOUR when the Son of Man will return...
“Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not
the Son of man cometh.”
Matthew 25:13, “Watch
ye know neither the
day nor the
wherein the Son of man cometh.”
Luke 12:40, “Be ye
therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye
Matthew 25:13 plainly teaches that NO MAN knows
the day when Jesus Christ will return... NO MAN. Let's see what happens on
May 21, 2011. Let's see if Harold Camping is correct, that is, if the world
comes to a fiery destructive end by October 21, 2011 beginning with a
massive earthquake and Rapture on May 21, 2011.
The Bible warned us about these false prophets
of doom who would attempt to lead us astray from THE TRUTH of God's Word. It
doesn't surprised me that Harold Camping's ministry is based out of
California. There are more false cults, weirdoes, nutcases, con artists,
homosexuals, and fruitcakes in California than any other place in America.
California is known as the “granola state,” that is, the land of fruits and
nuts. The area is known for HollyWEIRD, San FranSICKO, and CaliFORNICATION.
Add to that the unbiblical teachings of John MacArthur,
Ray Comfort, and Harold Camping. Maybe it's
something in the
air in California.
Deuteronomy 18:22, “When a prophet speaketh
in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is
the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it
presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” In other words, don't
place any weight upon what he has to say anymore. If a prophet says
something is of God, and it doesn't come to pass, then you know that he is
not of God. Camping predicted that the world would end in 1994 and no doubt
made a lot of money from saying that. A lot of people are naive, gullible,
and ignorant, buying into such lies and end time doomsday scenarios. Such
speculative claims not based upon the Bible sell lots of books.
Hebrews 1:2 teaches that God speaks to us in
these Last Days through His Son, i.e., through the Word of God. God doesn't
speak to ANYONE today through dreams, visions, nor personal interpretation.
In John 5:39 Jesus told us to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES.
Like the Jehovah's Witness and Seventh Day
Adventist demonic cults, Camping and his followers crunch a bunch of numbers
to mean something that God did not say.
We all have the SAME Bible, as given by
inspiration to the prophets and Apostles. The Bible was completed in A.D.
96. The Word of God is our Final Authority, a Lamp unto our feet (Psalm
119:105). God doesn't speak through religious nuts like
Bill Wiese, nor Pat
Robertson, nor Harold Camping.
BEWARE of Harold Camping, who is a
demonic false prophet!!!
believe it!!! The Bible does NOT teach this! The Lord will return at
a time when men know not.
were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be
false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable
heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon
themselves swift destruction."
