News report; man predicts "RAPTURE" May 21, 2011

Yes, while it is certainly and indisputably true that we are in the End Times, predicting a date for the Rapture does no good for anyone.

First, it is disobedient to the Lord, as He Himself stated in Matthew 25:13 "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming."

Second; silly predictions like this make all Christian believers look like idiots, and as an Evangelist, who's life calling is to preach the Gospel of Salvation, this just adds to the difficulty of bringing the truth to people.

While I agree we are living at a time when it could happen anytime, since the day Christ spoke - it could have happened anytime. WE DON'T KNOW THE DAY OR THE HOUR. WE ARE TO WATCH AND BE PREPARED. WE ARE TO PREACH THE GOSPEL.

If we stick to what our Lord told us to do and say, we have opportunity to share the truth and fulfill our ministry of reconciliation (IICorinthians 5:18-20). When we go beyond that, we are simply flapping our gums out of our own desires and are not acting in accordance with His perfect will.

God really created the Heaven and Earth in the beginning. Christ really walked the earth and really died for our sins. We really do need to know the TRUTH for it alone will set us free.
