Reader question about doomsday prophecies

READER QUESTION:

How should we, Torah observers and followers of Yeshua, react to the doomsday predictions out there?  Examples include: 2012 Mayan Calendar (failed), August Solar eclipse rapture (failed), and now the Sep. 21 doomsday prediction?

OUR RESPONSE: 

Laugh at them! Seriously - laugh at them! People who put these bogus prophecies together are only feeding on the fears of unknowing people.

Face it, we all know "gloom and doom" is coming, but the Messiah warned us that "no one knows the day or the hour!" (Matthew 24:36). That means that all those who create these "doomsday" predictions are actually blaspheming God! They are modern-day false prophets!

Honestly, our responsibility is to make sure we, personally, are "clean, presentable, and ready" to meet the fate that any one of us may face in these end times.

Yeshua says this very thing: "Therefore you too must always be ready, for the Son of Man will come when you are not expecting him. " (Matthew 24:44).

That's how we should react.

  1. Carmen, as I wrote to you awhile back, in 2008/2009 Jewish Voice did the series about the end times challenging what popular scholars (Hal Lindsey, Tim Lahaye, etc.) wrote years ago. After coming to faith in YHWH, I now realize their predictions were off the mark.
