Did you know that Judgment Day is scheduled for May 21? If not, read my post from last year to get yourself caught up.
This week several Alert Readers sent me photos of this advertisement, which is up on buses and in subway stations here in Washington, DC:
I was distracted by the guy on the right side of the ad, who seems to be taking a sunset crap on a beach, but Alert Reader T—— pointed out the gold seal of biblical guarantee on the left. Now I can’t decide which one is funnier.
The Family Radio site* has an even catchier graphic:
That’s right: 2012 is not allowed. This fits in with comments by one believer quoted in a recent Washington Post article about the zaniness: “God has put his stamp of approval that this is the day…I don’t doubt it, and I don’t look at the possibility of May 22 happening.”
The full details of the biblical guarantee can be found in Family Radio’s FAQ:
THE GREAT AMOUNT OF BIBLICAL SIGNS AND PROOFS ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE THAT JUDGMENT DAY WILL BEGIN ON MAY 21st THIS YEAR.
The FAQ has this information for doubters who do look at the possibility of May 22 happening:
What if May 21 ends and nothing occurs?
The Biblical evidence is too overwhelming and specific to be wrong. Christ’s people can look with great confidence to this date because God promises His “beloved” He will not come upon them as a thief in the night.
God in His mercy has revealed the vital information needed to know the day. Judgment Day on May 21, 2011 will occur because the bible declares it. Anyone whom God has not saved will arrive at that day with no hope for salvation. God warns simply the “door will be shut.”
So what’s in store for us on May 21?
A great earthquake will occur the Bible describes it as “such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.” This earthquake will be so powerful it will throw open all graves. The remains of the all the believers who have ever lived will be instantly transformed into glorified spiritual bodies to be forever with God.
On the other hand the bodies of all unsaved people will be thrown out upon the ground to be shamed.
The inhabitants who survive this terrible earthquake will exist in a world of horror and chaos beyond description. Each day people will die until October 21, 2011 when God will completely destroy this earth and its surviving inhabitants.
It’s not clear to me from this summary what will happen to the living believers in this scenario, but I assume they’re supposed to go to heaven along with the believer corpses.
Sadly, the organizers of the Run for Your Lives (“a 5k obstacle course race & scavenger hunt, infested with Zombies”) did not get the memo. They invite participants to
CELEBRATE YOUR LAST DAY WITH US at the apocalypse party
You have survived the zombie invasion (for now) so celebrate your last day with, Zombie chili, hot dogs, hamburgers, assorted beverages and the all-important antidote, Beer.
But the event is on October 22, a day too late! We will all be completely destroyed by then and unable to participate.
