How many times have Christian Ministers, Pastor and Preachers purported past history to be the end times? Would you fall for it now?

    Jesus Himself told us that NO-ONE would know the time. Therefore, as soon as anyone makes a "prediction", we can be certain it WON'T happen then.

    The End Times began with the Resurrection and Pentecost.

    Cultist leaders have said the same thing for the last two centuries.  Best to let God decide when the end is.

    They all do, because they all think they are special, here to save mankind. A classic case of narcissism.

    I've known quite a few clergymen of different Christian denominations, and I have yet to hear even one say the "the world will end/Jesus will return on such-and-such a date."   Maybe the clergy I've known are simply better acquainted with the Bible and less egotistic than the ones who make such irresponsible predictions.

    No one counts them. But the problem is that the Bible doesnt say the world will end. It describes the end of the AGE, Greek aion, English eon referring to a long period of time, not the world, Greek kosmos English cosmos. God says the world will never end.

    Ecclesiastes 1:4 KJV — One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

    Ephesians 3:21 KJV — Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

    The end of the AGE in scripture refers to the age of Moses law, and the inception of the age of Gods grace in and through Jesus Christ. We've been there for centuries.

    Past incidences of incorrectly saying certain time periods were the apocalypse are far too numerous to mention here.

    Before the Great Schism, some religious scholars had predicted 1000AD and then 1033AD, on the basis that the millennial reign of Christ began either at his birth, or at his death.

    Martin Luther predicted 1600AD as the end of the world

    William Miller incorrectly predicted 1843, and then after factoring in the lack of a 'year 0' in the transition from BC to AD, went with 22 October 1844. Before changing his 'interpretation' to mean that was the beginning of the end, but not the apocalypse itself. (Jehovah’s witnesses and Seventh day Adventists factor this date into any apocalyptic predictions). 

    Scripture clearly states that no one can ever work out the date for the end of the world so it ought to be illogical for any Christian to believe it when someone claims to have used divine inspiration alongside biblical references as the basis for random calculations to predict a specific date.

    MOST OF THESE PREACHERS HAVE NOT REALLY THOUGHT THROUGH THEIR ANSWERS AND THEREFORE GET THE WRONG SEASON. EVERYTHING GOES IN YHVH GOD"S PLAN ACCORDING TO THE FEASTS AND FESTIVALS THAT HE GAVE TO ISRAEL.

    YESHUA HIMSELF SAID THAT THERE WERE 2 DAYS FOR THE GENTILES AND HE WAS ABOUT 30-31 WHEN HE SAID THAT. HE DIED IN 28AD SO 2 DAYS =2000YEARS + 28 = 2028. ON TOP OF THAT HE FULFILLED ALL THE FEASTS EXCEPT ONE AND THAT IS TRUMPETS. SO WE CAN EXPECT HIM TO COME IN THE SEASON OF TRUMPETS. THAT DOES NOT PINPOINT A DAY OR AND HOUR, BUT A SEASON, THE SEASON OF TRUMPETS. 'LAST TRUMP ANYONE"

    NONE of those Christian ministers, pastors or preachers had any right to declare an exact date for when the world will end. The bible makes it perfectly clear that only God knows. ONLY GOD.
