May 21 The Rapture, Do not forget Harold Camping forecast the end of 1996. Christian radio station said that this time is for real. Is scheduled May 21, 2011, as the Christian Rapture, followed by the end of the October 21, 2011? Some of Las Vegas Sun and Las Vegas Weekly (where this article was originally published) readers, of course, leave us. Moreover, here is a practical guide to end times better living conditions: Some locked themselves inside to pray for mercy at the end of the world expected. Others last tears brought lunch with their children, and prepared to leave behind their homes and pets, as they were dragged into the sky.
And the entire world, followers of the long message to a preacher from California know that the day of reckoning would arrive on Saturday turned to the Bible, the book I believe that foretells the destruction of the Earth on 21 May.
The doomsday message has been sent far and wide through broadcasts and websites of Harold Camping, 89-year-old retired civil engineer who has built several million dollar non-profit ministry based in his apocalyptic prediction.
After spending months traveling the country to bring Judgement Day posters and hand of Bible tracts, Camping follower of Michael Garcia planned to spend the evening with his family at his home in Alameda, near the seat of empire Christian media in Oakland.
They believe it is likely to start because it is converted to 6 pm in the areas of the world several time.
“We know that the finals will start in New Zealand and follow the sun and roll from there,” said Garcia, a father of 39 years of age six. “That is why God raised up all the technology and satellites for all to see what happens at the same time.”
Camping radio stations, TV channels, satellite broadcasts and web site are controlled from a humble building on the way to Oakland International Airport, sandwiched between a garage and a palm reader. International Family message has been transmitted Radio in 61 languages.
Camping, however, awaits the return of Jesus Christ for the second time. He said his previous prediction apocalyptic in 1994 did not materialize due to a mathematical error.
“I’m not ashamed of it. It was just the fact that it was premature,” he told The Associated Press last month. But this time, he said, “… there is no possibility that it will not happen.”
Skeptics are planning Rapture-themed parties to celebrate what they hope will hosts the world’s failure to come to an end.
Bars and restaurants in Melbourne, Australia to the Florida Keys announced strikes.
In Oakland, atheists scheduled a meeting at a local Masonic temple to include panel discussions on “the great success of last Revelation”, followed by dinner and music.
Camping and his followers believe that the beginning of the end will arrive on May 21, exactly 7000 years since the flood in the biblical story of Noah’s Ark
Some 200 million people will be saved, Camping preaches, and those left will die in earthquakes, plagues and other calamities until a fireball consumes the Earth on 21 October.
Christian leaders across the spectrum have widely dismissed the prophecy, but a local church is concerned that the followers of Camping could fall into a deep depression on Sunday.
Pastor Jacob Denys Milpitas with offices at Calvary Bible Church plans to wait outside the headquarters of the nonprofit organization on the evening of Saturday, with the hope of believer’s lawyers who may be disappointed if the rapture does not occur.
“The cold, hard reality will hit that did it, and that it was false and that, basically, emptied everything to follow a false teacher,” he said. “We’re not all doom and gloom. Our message is a message of salvation and hope.”
On the afternoon of Friday, a small group of eccentric, curious, and opportunistic media convened outside the office building closed Family Radio. A sign on the door said: “SORRY TO BE MISSED!”
On May 21 approached, the supporters say that the donations increased, allowing radio family to spend millions of dollars in more than 5,000 billboards and 20 mobile homes covered with doomsday message. In 2009, non-profit reported on IRS documents they received and 18.3 million in donations and has assets of more and 104 million, including $ 34 million and shares or other securities are publicly traded.
Marie Exley, who helped bring apocalypse-themed posters in Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, said the money helped to save non-profit as many souls as possible. She said she and her husband planned, the mother and brother to stay glued to the television Friday night in Bozeman, Montana for news of an earthquake in New Zealand.
Camping recommended this week that his supporters surrounded by loved ones and do not meet publicly, Exley said.
“It’s an emotional moment and we’re a little nervous and scared about how things come to fruition as to who will be here and who will go to heaven,” he said. “I’m probably going to be afraid in the mist of it, and crying, because we know who is saved and who is not.”
Some people wanted to make sure their pets receive proper treatment, no matter what happens.
Sharon Moss, who founded AfterTheRapturePetCare.com to provide animal care after the Apocalypse, said a new wave of customers have paid and 10 to enroll in recent weeks.
“Many people have said must be they’re to save souls, not saving pets but my heart says` why can not do both? ‘”Said Moss, who identifies themselves as Protestant.
