If you live under a rock, you may not have noticed this latest "prediction". You can read about Harold Camping's prediction here: The End of the World As We Know It? Prediction of Saturday 'Rapture' is Fuel for Faithful, Doubters - FoxNews.com Harold Camping came to this prediction from reading 2 Peter 3:8- Source: JUDGMENT DAY 2 Peter 3:8 is often taken out of context. Here is a passage from a sermon preached in 1862: Source: http://www.spurgeongems.org/vols7-9/chs447.pdf What Rev Spurgeon was arguing then was the interpretation that throughout the Bible, days are actually = 1,000 years. It's easy to misread what was written if you take that single verse out of the context of who Peter was writing to and what was going on with the early Christian church at the time. Here is a few more verses for more context: In context, what Peter is saying is that the Lord is patient. Patient for the purpose of trying to save more of His children before the end. This is clearly different than a prediction of time. There is another aspect of this. Read Matthew 24:36- Harold Camping knows no more about when the end will happen than you or I. The scripture is clear in this regard. Rev Spurgeon addressed the misinterpretation of this verse nearly 200 years ago. Here we are seeing the same thing again today. Thoughts?
