Jesus may return to Earth tomorrow, a hundred years from now, or any other day, but it is unlikely to be this Saturday, May 21st- a day when the Family Radio organization expects His return. The reason is simple: The Bible says in Matthew 24:36 and Mark 13:32 that no one knows the day or hour of the Lord’s return, not angels or anyone else, but the God the Father.

The Bible further explains in 2 Peter 3:10 that the Lord will come as a “thief in the night.” So, to calculate and promote a specific date means to disregard the Bible’s teaching. Matthew 24:44 says Jesus will come when He is unexpected: “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”

One of the claims made by Family Radio about the May 21, 2011 date is, “The Bible guarantee’s it!” The Bible actually states the opposite- that no one knows the day or hour of Jesus’s return, but only God the father.

In a poll conducted on March 16, 2011, Bible readers expressed their opinions about the recent Judgment Day claims. “They should know better than to ‘fear-monger’,” said R. Hartman, a housewife from Spotswood, New Jersey. “I think a lot of people lose respect for people who claim such things. If you know your Bible, you should know the truth!”

Richard Harris, retired Bible reader from Katy, Texas, said, “I believe the Word of God should be taken literally whenever possible. I am amazed at the clarity and simple truths that are ingrained in the Bible. God’s promises, precepts and provisions are clearly outlined in His Word and easily found and identified when reading and studying His Word.”

The book of Ephesians 5:6 says, “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” (King James Version)

  1. instead of wasting time on what man says and thinks people need to make use of there time on finding out what Gods words say. Only God knows when that time will be.

  2. It’s no more likely to happen that day than any other. No less likely either. Come quickly Lord Jesus. I mean it, hurry up!

  3. A persons death may come in the next second or at anytime thereafter. Being saved and getting other souls saved that should be the concern. When your last second here on earth is up your end of this world has come. Which world will you be thereafter HEAVEN OR HELL.

  4. For we shouldn’t be moved by what we hear or see men doing but be moved by God’s word thus give them no attention.

  5. Matt. 24, Mark 13 & Luke 21…we are in beginning of sorrows, then comes a 7 yr peace treaty with Israel which makes it the Trib, then comes in the middle of peace treaty abomination of desolation, destroying of the Jews, this is Great Trib, after this comes the Son of Man in the clouds….the world is without end…Read the word

    1. Linda R: Can you explain your views in regards to the destroying of the Jews from the Bible references. I am so interested in your opinion on this. I am under the impression all Christian’s will suffer. Thanks for your comments – interesting study.

  6. I KNOW THE WORD SAYS NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY NOR THE HOUR OF CHRIST RETURN BUT THE FATHER ONLY. ALL THIS TALK ABOUT SATURDAY IF NOTHING ELSE FOR A WHILE HAS PUT THE REMINDER THAT JESUS IS COMING SOON IN THE MINDS OF ALOT OF PEOPLE AND JESUS IS COMING SOON AS THE FATHER TELLS HIS GO

  7. Your’re right..THE RAPTURE WILL NOT HAPPEN ON  MAY 21, 2011 ..LIKE SOME ARE SAYING. The Bible says no man knows the day or the hour..so it is useless and unwise to set dates like some people are doing these days.
    We are to be ready at all times for in such an hour when we think not…the Son of man will come.

  8. Go to you tube and type in Arnold Murray Rapture Theory. I think you need to know something as I did,It changed my life and now I have a destiny and so do you if you read the word correctly!go to II Thessalonian and read chapter two all the…

  9. So true. There are many anti Christian groups throwing parties this weekend. So I left a message that in case somebody did get this one right, most doubtful, I left all my worldly goods along with car keys to two corvettes as well as 6 other cars. They are locked up in a 1000lb safe. It’s all theirs if they can figure out the combination… haha

  10. So sad that these folks will be missing the rapture when it does occur. It’s obvious that they are not true believers. Or else they would understand that their thinking is incorrect.
