The False Teaching of Harold Camping

15 May 2011: There are a whole of lot Christians, followers of the oft repeated false teaching of Harold Camping, who are in for a rude and very embarassing day of awakening in church come Sunday, 22 May, 20011 and the day on Monday morning when they will have to endure the ridicule of the still disbelieving world, from family members to co-workers to perfect strangers. They will have to try to stand tall with their fellow brethren who as much as told them so, but who will be there to lovingly set them back on the correct hermeneutical path of prophetic teaching regarding these last days.

The above billboard about says it all concerning the reason why the day after May 21 will turn out the way it will for these deceived brethren. They have listened and acted upon to the false teaching of Harold Camping when they should have listened to the Holy Spirit as they read the Word of God. All of this could have been avoided. More importantly, the damage inflicted upon the Bride of Christ as a whole and to Good News of His soon coming again could all have been avoided.

The lessons willingly ignored by these Christians was simple as simple can be:

1.) They did not beware themselves of the false prophet Harold Camping (Matthew 7:15).

2.) They failed to heed the words of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself: "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only."(Matthew 24:36)

That's all I have to say about this unfortunate, completely avoidable situation. If necessary, after May 21 has come and gone, I'll be there for those who honestly need assistance coping.


Last Days Luke said...

I believe this is a sign and that it is in context with the other signs Jesus warned about. In Matthew 24, Jesus gives warnings of the last days such as wars and rumors of wars, nation rising against nation, kingdom rising against kingdom (in terms of authority within a nation), earthquakes in various places, and specifically that “false prophets will appear and deceive many people” (vs. 11).

These signs are all happening at a rapid pace now and this false prophet is a sign himself.

Harold Camping is an old man who is teaching a false message about eschatology. He is making an error.
Don't forget the years when he preached the Gospel for the salvation of many listeners. I am sorry that he is wasting HIS last years. His mistake is bigger because he has more ressources to publish it.Stop to listen to him on the May 22th and don't believe his explication. He is my suggestion. Mr Camping just get your retirement and stop to teach.

His followers have a way of working around verses which state no man knows. Like "For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God." - 1 Cor. 2:10-11.

So, when Christ said "No man knows" He was [supposedly] referring to the carnal man and not to followers of "christ" (Read: Harold Camping).

These people are completely brainwashed and I think we could be barreling towards a global Jonestown.

As the sign does say 'Cry mightily to the Lord' there is the thought of this gent claiming that their 'mighty prayers' caused The Lord to change His mind and put it all off until a later date.


We could be gone in a minute and watch the bewilderment from the balcony. :)

Hey Sean! Good to hear from you! Sage advice brother concerning the Camping ordeal. It is just another means by which Satan seeks to diminish those teaching truth, by having a "Christian Minister" engaged in false teachings, which when it doesn't happen, will be the proof many antagonist will use to disprove all those teaching the Word, especially those of us who study Eschatology and prophecy.

I kinda feel sorry for Brother Camping, as I am sure his advanced years has him worried about leaving this world before the rapture event, and has tainted his sensibilities and discernment concerning this matter: He wants to be awake so badly for the Rapture, he has give Satan a means to mislead him and use him to mislead others. How many will loose faith after putting they're trust in Camping will remain to be seen, but anyone who puts their faith in any mortal man, to the point of ignoring what Yeshua Hammashiach plainly spoke, is fooling themselves as to their relationship with the Holy Trinity. Such is the times we find ourselves in these days.

Blessings and Shalom!

Maranatha! Mark

I have heard it said elsewhere that Harold Camping is a sincere believer who is sincerely wrong.

That's about the sum of it.

Others have made similar errors in their zeal. Some, obviously, more than once. They are human.

Pray that Father, Son and Holy Spirit assist us and our brethren when they emerge from this on 22 May.

God will still be in control, His Will will still be done on earth as it is in Heaven. The appointed hour will come at the appointed time.

Hi Mark,

There is NO QUESTION that Harold Camping is a really BAD APPLE and most certainly will run afoul of the Lord for his teaching. Very afoul at that.

Here is the entry that is posted for him at theWho's Who in Bible Prophecy webpage:

"President of Family Radio, he teaches that God has done away with the Church, and he maintains that the Holy Spirit has left the Church which has no power to proclaim the gospel. He calls for his followers to flee churches and form fellowships around his teachings. He claims the Church Age began when the State of Israel was officially formed in May of 1948, and then the Church Age ended 40 years later on May 21, 1988. His use of numerology and allegorical interpretations of Bible prophecy are well known. He is famous for his failed prophecy concerning the return of Christ in September 6, 1994, and the failed prediction of the rapture on May 21, 2011, along with the end of the world. He claims that the two witnesses in Revelation 11:3 are the church collectively. Having written over 30 books and booklets, he is the epitome of a heretic and a false prophet."

We will have work to do on 22 May. I decided to post this today as a head start preparation for that day and afterwards.
