Evidently tommorow is the day that kicks off the end of the world as we know it. I laughed at first, but when I heard the part of Obama’s speech concerning Israel yesterday the Armageddon prediction didn’t seem quite as ridiculously speculative.
For months they’ve been spreading the word, answering the biblical call of Ezekiel 33 to sound the alarm and warn the people.
Their message, which they say the Bible guarantees, is simple: The end of the world is near.
And now, it’s suddenly really near – so near that if these folks are right, you should probably pass on buying green bananas.
Perhaps you’ve already noticed, what with the billboards and signs dotting the landscape, the pamphlets blowing in the wind and the RVs plastered with Judgment Day warnings weaving through cities. Or maybe, as the birds chirped outside and you sipped your morning coffee, a full-page newspaper ad for the upcoming mass destruction caught your eye.
May 21, 2011, according to loyal listeners of Family Radio, a Christian broadcasting network based in Oakland, California, will mark the Day of Rapture and the start of Judgment Day (which, they say, will last five months). Those who are saved will be taken up to heaven, and those who aren’t will endure unspeakable suffering. Dead bodies will be strewn about as earthquakes ravage the Earth, they say. And come October 21, they’ll tell you, the entire world will be kaput
There’s not much time left, so get your affairs in order (thanks for taking care of that ahead of time, Arnold):
Family Radio is still offering Judgment Day bumper stickers, so they must have access to one seriously fast shipping service.
What are you doing on your last day on earth? I’m blogging, which seems stupid, because I should be hanging out with Charlie Sheen or at least something a little more worthy of a last day on earth.
