May 21st--Rapture day or not?

Okay. I'm going to post this on May 20th...and come back and comment on May 22nd.

If you don't have a clue what I'm talking about, Google "Judgement Day 2011" or something like it. In a nutshell---and that is a good choice of words---an 89-year-old man named Harold Camping has decided, through much study and calculation, that May 21, 2011 is the day Jesus will rapture all Believers. Never mind that Mr. Camping previously predicted a date in 1994, which apparently didn't turn out the way he thought it would.

I've decided to blog about the Rapture and what I believe it's all about at another time. (Mainly because I simply don't have time right now.) Instead, I'll leave you with Jesus' words from Matthew 24:36 and 44:

"No one knows about the day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but ONLY the Father."

"So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

It seems as if another group has entered the billboard wars in Camping's/Family Radio's back yard of Oakland, CA. They are disputing Camping's claims with a compelling message of "Jesus is already here." Here's a short video about their billboard:
