FOUR DAYS TO GO: CAMPING’S PREDICTION ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD

17 May

Harold Camping, octogenarian owner of 55 Family Radio stations, has mathematically calculated that the 2nd Coming will occur on May 21st, 2011.  So ……  you and I have four days left on planet earth — if we know Jesus.

Predictions of the timing of the 2nd Coming are almost as old as the New Testament.  But Jesus Himself said, “Of that day and hour no one knows!”  Christians have been routinely disappointed and embarrassed when the predicted rapture hasn’t occurred.

But one day He IS coming — and we should be ready.  Being ready involves being about His business which is to share the Good News of salvation with the world (the Great Commission, Matthew 28) and to show His love to all (the Great Commandment, Matthew 22).

If you knew you only had four days to go — how would your life change?  When asked that kind of question about the 2nd Coming, Martin Luther said, “I would still plant my apple tree and pay my bills.”  I like his answer.

Discussion questions:  What is wrong with looking forward to Jesus’ 2nd Coming?  How can we obey the Great Commandment and the Great Commission — and still long for His coming?
