Poll: Will The World End On Saturday?

DETROIT (WWJ) – You’ve probably seen the billboards from a west-coast Christian group predicting that Saturday, May 21, will be the Rapture, the taking up in heaven of God’s elected people — 144,000, to be exact.

This is the same group led by broadcaster Harold Camping, who inaccurately predicted the same thing back in 1994. So, is there any credibility to their claims?

WWJ Newsradio spoke Friday with Pastor Emery Moss Jr., of Strictly Biblical Bible Teaching Ministries in Detroit.

“There’s nothing in studying the Bible that gives you an exact date of when Jesus will come, or when the end will come,” Moss said.

“Jesus clearly communicated in the gospels, and Paul writes in First Thessalonians, (verse) five, that he comes as a thief in the night. We will not know the day or the hour,” he said.

So what do some Metro Detroiters think about the supposed End of Times?

The state of the economy, even the weather, makes one man wonder if this could really be it.  “A lot of it’s in the Bible right now, what’s happening now,” he told WWJ’s Ron Dewey.

But, does he really expect the world to end tomorrow? “That would suck,” he said.

Another said this exact date doesn’t jibe with his schedule. But, when the time comes, he’ll be ready.

“My people, they tell me it’s going to be December 23rd, 2012, it’s gonna happen that day.  I’m gonna be drinking. I’m gonna be partying. It’s gonna be a good time!”

 Are you buying any of this?  Or, do you have plans for your last day on Earth? Comment below.

    The world can`t end tomorrow and it won`t. I need to watch the movie Kung Fu Panda 2 I heard it was gonna be awesome.

    For all we know, a comet or gamma ray burst could hit our planet tomorrow, ending all life. But it’s not likely.

    Predictions of future events are made by those who are self-deluded or liars.

    The activity in the New Madrid fault could split the US in half…It’s bigger than the San Andreas fault in CA…Look it up.
    More tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding, drought, dead birds, etc. this year than ever before.

    Why didn’t it end in 2000 as SO many predicted? Now it’s going to be tomorrow? It’s also suppose to be in 2012. As said before: Jesus clearly communicated in the gospels, and Paul writes in First Thessalonians, (verse) five, that he comes as a thief in the night. We will not know the day or the hour,”

    A HAARP’d quake is possible and may fit in with their plans but we still have a while till the end. The Rapture is one of Satan’s lies that will have most following after him as Antichrist.

    The world could end on Saturday, but i doubt it will be this Saturday or the next few for that matter

  10. Linda says:

    When Jesus comes back, He will take His faithful home with Him. People who are racisist will not want to go to heaven because all races will be there. No we do not know the day nor the hour. The world is not ending today.
