Harold has written his 1994 book suspecting it would of been the end but it did not happen.
God is Gracious
To me, it was quite clear that from Matthew 24:36 - But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
"fja0568"
Some people say "if you start with 931 B.C....", but how would you know that year if you used the Bible only?
God is a refuge for us (Psalms 62:8)

Harold Camping's odd work is heavily influenced by numerology, a psuedo-science influenced by ancient mysticism that trys to find hidden truth behind literal meanings of the Bible.
The book is filled with strange assumptions based upon allegory mixed with ignorance. Camping's logic is so inconsistent that it should be required reading for students taking NUTCASE 101 .
The Bible stands true without Mr. Camping's distortions of the greatest book ever written.

I listened to Open Forum during my college years from about 1992-1994, during which time I began to buy into some of the bible teachings of Mr. Camping. But, I became confused after he started asserting that he knew when Christ would return, since by this time I thought that he did have a deeper understanding of the Bible than most. To me, it was quite clear that from Matthew 24:36 - But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. So, I bought the book anyway to see what was said. So, people are willing to believe Mr. Camping's complex manipulations of the scripture and ignore the clear teaching of Matthew. I understand Christians' desire for the return of Christ, but that has been the case for over 2000 years. Now I read that Mr. Camping is asking people to leave their churches. Poor sools that follow after this deceived man. Just live your life as Christ lived His and submit yourself to his Church.

Too long.
May sound good if you don't know your Bible or Biblical History.
The world won't end on 2011 either.

The ultimate false prophet, Harold Camping. A super-millionaire who has banked heavily on false predictions. This book is a fail, although not nearly as huge a failure as his 2011 prediction that he said "WILL DEFINITELY HAPPEN ON MAY 21st".

Shame on you, False Prophet. Bury your head in shame and return the money to the innocent, gullible people who donated to your fruitless cause.

It seems retired engineer Camping was only too eager to join the parade of failed religious prophets before him in this amusing slice of millenial madness. It stands alongside other classics like "666 : The Final Warning" by Gary Blevins and "Gorbachev! Has the Real Antichrist Come?" by Robert Faid as an incredulous and unintentionally hilarious record of the religious fringe in the early 1990's.
Some may be put off by the fact that the central tenet of Camping's book is a completely failed prophecy. But don't let that stir you from your beliefs! Just because Camping was totally wrong on every one of his predictions doesn't mean he is a total failure. Apparently not for some people, since many evangelists are still recycling the tired arguments from this and Campings subsequent book published in 1993. The need to believe knows no bounds in some circles, it appears.
A good prophet never misses a beat, and Camping still churns out his radio show, rarely acknowledging his brief trip into the world of failed prophets. Unlike Lindsay and Lahaye who continue to churn out sequel after sequel, Camping's career in publishing prophecy was mercifully short.

Harold has written his 1994 book suspecting it would of been the end but it did not happen. A person thought Oct 2005 was the end and it did not happen. And, now Harold is back at it again thinking 2011 is the end and guess what, it will not happen.

Please when reading these books pay close attention to the Bible verses being used and see what the Audiance Relivance is to those Bible verses before being swept into a belief called "The end of the world" when the Bible shares that the church age is without end Eph 3:21 "Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."

The Church Age, "The New Covenant," will have no end. So, lets do what we can to make a differance in our world instead of sitting back based upon a prediction that will never be...let the Bible be your guide not a man's interpretation of it.

As Dr. Loraine Boettner once said:

"...when a prophecy or promise has been fulfilled once, there is no valid reason why it must be fulfilled again, or repeatedly."

And today as you know it in the churches they think the end of the age was talking about the church age but the real age it spoke about was of the Old Covenant, called Judism, which Hebrews shares was slowly fading away and would soon be no more. Just like David and Saul lived during the same time and were both kings, it was Saul who still was reigning until he pasted away and then from there on David was king so it was with the old and new covenant, side by side they were but once the old pasted away the new was fully known so it is not the church age which will end and the church is not a building either for the church is the body of Christ and each one of us in Christ are of that body...the true church.

The basis of this book is NOT the Holy Bible, although its author disputes that. The author is Harold Camping, president and general manager of Family Radio (also known as Family Stations).

The basis of this book is secular. The book hinges on what the author describes as "the timeline" or the "biblical" calendar of history.

If you use the Bible only, then you can NOT validate the "biblical" calendar of history. Some people say "if you start with 931 B.C....", but how would you know that year if you used the Bible only? You wouldn't. Yet it is so natural to think this way.

The Gregorian calendar is not biblical; no man-made calendar is biblical. If you add the Gregorian calendar to the Bible (even just a little bit...just one tiny date), then you are in violation of Revelation 22:18. It really is that simple. There are no B.C. or A.D. dates in the Bible; nor can you arrive at such dates without ADDING something to the Bible.

We are seeing one of the dangers of adding to God's Word. How can anyone deny the many proofs and coincidences? What really happens when we add to God's Word...even when we think it is justified? Perhaps "miraculous" things happen...things that would lead us to believe that what we have done is the right thing.

"1994?" was preceded by "Adam When?" and "The Biblical Calendar of History" and "The Perfect Harmony of the Numbers of the Hebrew Kings", and several other books written by Harold Camping. The foundation of "1994?" includes the books mentioned above. If you read these books, you will notice that many non-biblical sources were used to write them.
