The Family Radio Worldwide evangelist Harold Camping predicts that The Judgement Day is closer than we think and has announced the exact date of rapture as May 21, 2011.

The 2012 Nostradamus predictions have gained a lot of popularity, firstly because the year is
coming closer and secondly his predictions seem to match predictions from other sources like
the Mayan and Gnostic texts and so on. But Harold Camping thinks otherwise.
Camping, an 89-year-old former civil engineer-turned-biblical scholar, says he reached his
conclusion after 70 years of intense study and a few incorrect interpretations like the one he
made in 1994.

Nevertheless, he is now convinced that the rapture is set to happen in what he reckons is "19
weeks and a few days."

Camping came up to the conclusion with a mathematical formula using the numbers given in
the Bible. He said, "Because I was an engineer, I was very interested in the numbers. I'd
wonder, 'Why did God put this number in or that number in?' It was not a question of unbelief; it
was a question of, 'There must be a reason for it.' "
Camping concluded that the number five equals "atonement" while 10 is "completeness" and 17
means "heaven." By using the date April 1, A.D. 33 as his starting point, he added 1,978 and
came to April 1, 2011.

Then he multiplied 1,978 by 365.2422, the number of days in each solar year. Then, he realized
that it's 51 days between April 1 and May 21 and added those to the sum of his multiplication
total and got 722,500.

Then Camping realized that 722,500 equals five times 10 times 17 squared [(5*10*17)2]: Or, as
he prefers, atonement times completeness times heaven squared.

Well, Camping’s predictions (calculations) turn correct this time or not, only the time will tell, but
this surely has grabbed him a lot of attention.

Nou vra ek of is dit moontlik dat mense dit kan voorspel? Is ons bedoel om te weet of nie? Is dit nie maar net die belangrikste dat ons elke dag leef asof dit ons laaste dag is en seker maak ons harte is reg en dat ons leef as God se kinders nie?
