Concerning the May 21st Prediction

May 21st was supposed by some to be the day that our Lord would return to rapture the church. Obviously it did not happen. Rather many people are left without jobs, retirement money, etc. and worse: a loss of faith.

However, the fact that we are still here should not be a surprise to those who study the Bible. God clearly shows that we will not know the time that Jesus will come for us(Luke 12:40). Jesus also told His disciples that it was not for them, or us, to know the times or seasons, for they belong only Father (Acts 1:6-8).

But still, people insist on trying to predict the return of Christ. It started back with the first century church. In fact, the purpose of Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonian Church was to tell them that the end times were not yet come. Just like today, some people of the Thessalonian church had evidently quite their job in anticipation of Jesus’ return(2 Thess. 3:11). These predictions have continued through the ages. During the Roman empire, scholars claimed that the Emperor was the antichrist. And these predictions will not end until Christ does come. There are already dates set in 2012 and beyond for Christ’s return.

But although the Christians of Thessalonica were misguided, Paul did not call them heretics. Neither did he look down upon them or chastise them. Rather, he lovingly corrected them. Paul begins 2 Thessalonains giving thanks for the faith and charity of the Thessalonian church, and he ends the epistle wishing peace and the grace to them. And so should this be our response to those who were misguided in this event. We should be glad that they hold the Word of God up with such faith, and we should show love to them; while being careful ourselves not to be “carried away with every wind of doctrine.”



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
