The End of the World!?!?!

While looking for something interesting to post for today, I came across this webpage from ebiblefellowship.com.    According to them, judgement day was supposed to happen last May.   They said that May 21, 2011 would be Judgement Day and the World would end on October 21, 2011.  UHHHH, It is August 29th and I am still here.  Sorry ebiblefellowship.com, but you were wrong!!!

According to them, this was the timeline:

TIMING OF IMPORTANT EVENTS IN HISTORY

11,013 BC—Creation. God created the world and man (Adam and Eve).
4990 BC—The flood of Noah’s day. All perished in a worldwide flood. Only Noah, his wife, and his 3 sons and their wives survived in the ark (6023 years from creation).
7 BC—The year Jesus Christ was born (11,006 years from creation).
33 AD—The year Jesus Christ was crucified and the church age began (11,045 years from creation; 5023 calendar years from the flood).
1988 AD—This year ended the church age and began the great tribulation period of 23 years (13,000 years from creation).
1994 AD—On September 7th, the first 2300-day period of the great tribulation came to an end and the latter rain began, commencing God’s plan to save a great multitude of people outside of the churches (13,006 years from creation).
2011 AD—On May 21st, Judgment Day will begin and the rapture (the taking up into heaven of God’s elect people) will occur at the end of the 23-year great tribulation. On October 21st, the world will be destroyed by fire (7000 years from the flood; 13,023 years from creation).

Seriously, there are so many different interpretations of the bible and other sacred and/or historical texts out there that it is almost impossible to tell the exact date.  To make things even harder, the calendar that was used in the Old Testament times differed from the calendar that we use today.  There were many different calendars in use in different parts of the world just from the time of the Old Testament to the New Testament. 

I think we should just all live life as best we can and not worry about the end of the world.  It isn't like we are going to be able to stop it, are we?

  1. It would definitely change one's attitude to layaway plans and credit cards if you thought the end of the world was near.

    1. Yes, I would go on a big spending spree. But with my luck, the world wouldn't end and I would be in even more debt than I am now!
