This weeks news has been abuzz with all types of stories. The one that intrigues me is Harold Camping’s prediction that the Rapture happens on 5/21/11. This same man had predicted the Rapture back in 1994, but when it failed to materialize, blamed scripture in Matthew for the miscalculation. The article from ABC news is interesting. (see story here.)
Also of interest is the discussion , today, between PM Benjamin Netanyahu and our “Mr President”. Words from Obama’s Middle East Speech last night, called for the 1967 borders of Israel to be used as a starting point for peace negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Has anyone really looked at the SIZE of Israel? It is a small sliver of land that probably amounts to the square mileage of Greater Houston, Greater Dallas/Ft Worth , and Greater San Antonio. Essentially, Obama is giving a chance for the terrorist organization of Hamas to step in and take over our Jewish brothers, including the birthplace of Christianity and all things we hold sacred as Christians and Jews in Jerusalem. This would amount to genocide, similar to the Third Reich in WWII. It is not a good place for the leader of the free world to be taking us, as Americans, or the Israelis. The Christian Science Monitor had a good report. (See article here.)
Maybe it IS the end of the world as we know it…
I plan to work in the yard tomorrow.
