Golly, I nearly forgot, what with the World Series, the Wall Street protests, and clipping my fingernails: the end of the world will be taking place tomorrow, Friday, October 21st. Don't believe me? Well, you'll at least believe the folks at Family Radio, right?
Thus we have learned that except for a somewhat different understanding of the words “earthquake” and “rapture” or “catching up” no other past teachings of Judgment Day or the end of the world have been changed. The time line, the certainty of it, the proofs, and the signs are all precisely the same. No other past teachings have been changed or modified. Indeed, on May 21 Christ did come spiritually to put all of the unsaved throughout the world into judgment. But that universal judgment will not be physically seen until the last day of the five month judgment period, on October 21, 2011.
We have also learned that God is still teaching that God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked and will not punish the wicked beyond what is called for in Deuteronomy 25. That is, there is a distinct limit to God’s wrath.
Thus we can be sure that the whole world, with the exception of those who are presently saved (the elect), are under the judgment of God, and will be annihilated together with the whole physical world on October 21, 2011, on the last day of the present five months period. On that day the true believers (the elect) will be raptured. We must remember that only God knows who His elect are that He saved prior to May 21. [emphasis added because, well, it seems kind of important]
Oh, also: the Oregon Ducks will be playing the Colorado Buffalo on Saturday, October 22nd, the day after the world ends. And in case you are wondering, I do believe that Colorado (who is a 31 point underdog) has a better chance of beating the Ducks than the Family Radio folks do of prophecying the end of the world. Truth be told, if Oregon does lose on Saturday, some people around here will feel like it is the end of the world. But since that would be on Saturday and not Friday, it wouldn't count.
