May 21, 2011…Who Knew?

They do.  Jesus didn’t.

Yes, that is correct.  They know.  They have published it on billboards, the intenet and other media sources. Judgment Day is May 21, 2011, and the end of the world will follow on October 21,2011.

But Jesus didn’t know.

How do they know?  They looked it up in the Bible and calculated it.   Here’s how.

1.  The seven days of Genesis 7:4 are 7000 years because one day with the Lord is like a 1000 years.

Did Jesus know that?

2.  This was said to Noah in 4990. Minus 7000, and you get 2011.

Did Jesus know that?

But enough of the calculation. You can read it for yourself if you like. My point is quite simple.

Jesus had all the data available to him that is available to them. They read the Bible and conclude May 21, 2001 is the day!  Jesus, however, knew the same data and said “I don’t know” (cf. Mark 13:32).

Who do you believe?  I think I’ll go with Jesus.

    I feel cheated that he has been privileged with information that neither Jesus nor the rest of us received.

    I told the last person who gave an exact date for the end of the world,that I would believe him, if he signed all of his property over to me beginning the day after the world was supposed to end. … He wasn’t that confident in the date!

    The sad part about Judgment Day, May 21, 2011 is that one of the many spiritual signs that it WILL happen is the fact that people will be “clinging to dear life” to the “No one Knows, and Jesus Doesn’t know” or “Christ comes as a thief in the night” verses. According to the Bible, this IS an actual sign of the end. It is NOT a proof text that May 21, 2011 is false. However, the people who are against the authority of the word of God and do not trust the Bible will say otherwise. This is regardless of the fact that God has given us an immense amount of proofs from the Bible for our present generation. People don’t realize (especially those who are still in the Churches) that verses such as these were written by God in this manner as a way of “separating” those who trust the Bible and have truly being born-again by His own work from those who “think” they have a relationship with Christ but are NOT truly born again (John 3:5).

    This is such a surreal situation that is happening in our day. It is playing itself-out exactly as God has laid-it out in His word. Every time I hear someone ask me, “What will you do on May 22nd when the world is still here?” it breaks my heart into pieces because until God himself opens their understanding to what is going on, they have no true conception of the gravity of this problem. I know that it’s not up to me to convince anyone. It is all in God’s hands for anyone to really come to truth about what the Bible is teaching. The Bible does teach that this is how everything will be playing out right before the destruction, along with all of the other proofs God has given us. Millions of people will be going into the Day of Judgment arrogantly mocking, denying and making light of the return of Christ. The finality for them would be coming as a result of pride and the love for this present world, which the Bible warned not to get entangled with (I John 2:15-17, II Pet 3). God warned about this because He has a plan for this world and it is to destroy it with all of the works and sin that it is infected with. Moreover, there is no amount of mocking, denial, human resources or personal opinions that will stop God’s will from coming to pass. What is about to happen is the will of God, not our will. What we think means nothing, absolutely nothing. The world is completely at the mercy of God whether they like it or not. We can either start praying for his mercy, reading His word and hope we are one of those whom He will save or we can arrogantly sit back with our arms crossed waiting to see (which will be too late when the day actually comes). There is still hope that He may have mercy on those who are truly fearful and broken in heart.

    May God have mercy on us all,

    Jon 3:2-10 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands. Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not? And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

      If the Lord comes on May 21, I’ll will rejoice. If he does not come on May 21, I will continue to wait. Either way, God reigns and God is merciful. Peace.

      good post. This is incredibly sad that people are just mocking this and probably not even looking at the information because they are convinced Christ is coming as a thief in the night, even though the Bible says that He is not coming as a thief for the believers.

    The organization hosting this campaign has a website with “hundreds of hours of Bible study” available. You’d think they could whittle it down a bit, considering we have about 600 hours left.

    Reading their justification for the claim, I sincerely don’t understand why one couldn’t use the same sort of reasoning to say that the oceans will recede soon. After all, what God actually told Noah that the flood would recede after seven days (and 1 day means 1000 years). Maybe we’re still somewhat flooded.

    This conversation also exemplifies an odd rhetorical strategy. It seems to me that the fastest way to build pseudo-credibility in a theory is to predict that someone will disagree with you. Just wait for an objection and cite it as evidence for your own clairvoyance. You don’t even have to answer the argument.

    I don’t know who wrote this article, but the fact that they keep saying that Jesus didn’t know shows that they don’t even understand that Jesus was Jehovah God. In Mark 13 the word son is not capitalize in the original Greek, and it cannot be referring to Christ. Christ is God, He knows time, He knows everything. If you cannot understand that then I am sorry to say you are not going to understand even more complicated truths such as the timing of the end. There are many proofs and evidences that May 21 will be the day. May God have mercy on us. Please look at the information more carefully and pray for mercy.

      Nothing ‘is capitalize in the original Greek’.

      John Mark Hicks wrote the article.

      I’ll pray for mercy, but there’s no way I’m taking a second glance at the material.

      •   Vasili Says:

        I understand that, that’s the point. There is no reason to think the word son in that verse is referring the Christ. That is a denial that Christ is God. I see this stated time and time again in opposition to May 21 and it is just showing that those who are opposing aren’t even understanding that Christ is God. This is a huge red flag and problem. Christ is God. He knows the time, and throughout the Bible He tells the believers when judgment is coming, and He is doing it again now. I can only encourage you again to look at it. May God have mercy on us.

        I hope you are right. I would love for the Lord to return on May 21, and sooner the better. So, I’ll be waiting that day just like every day.

    The day of judgment Isaiah 42:21, follow 21 Proverbs 18:21. The Bible ends with grace Rev 22:21. God is not in the churches. Matthew 21:42-43
