We’re Still Here

Well, we’re still here on May 21, 2011.  This morning I “just happened” to read Psalm 75, and so much of this ancient song is appropriate for today.  God says, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge uprightly.  When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.”  God appoints the time, and as I’ve already noted elsewhere, only he knows that time.  Harold Camping doesn’t; neither do I; nor does anyone else.  Anyone who claims to know is only arrogantly boasting of things he knows nothing.  Notice the next verse of the Psalm, “To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.  Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.'”  Only God can exalt a man, and those who exalt themselves will be brought down.  The next words of Psalm 75 are “No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man.  But it is God who judges:  He brings one down, he exalts another.”

Let’s not exalt ourselves because one man was wrong.  Rather let’s pray for those who gave away their life savings to advertise for a false prophet.  Let’s pray for those who will now say, “See the Bible was wrong again!”  For it’s not the Bible that was wrong, but one man’s false statements about it.  Let’s pray this draws people to the truth rather than drives them away.  Jesus Christ will return, but no one knows the day or the hour.  It is not for us to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.

  1. Pastor Glenn,

    Your last paragraph is dead on. I have been having conversations this am with some of my friends who are going the gambit of the bible is wrong to I told you so about the false prophet. I feel very sorry for everyone that gave up their life savings to follow Camping and I pray this opens their eyes to the truth of the gospel and not stear them away. He does have a massive following. Imagine what it would be like if there was a massive transformation in Camping and he used his radio ministry for the proper teaching of Gods word.
