Here's the math:
TIMING OF IMPORTANT EVENTS IN HISTORY
11,013 BC—Creation. God created the world and man (Adam and Eve).
4990 BC—The flood of Noah’s day. All perished in a worldwide flood. Only Noah, his wife, and his 3 sons and their wives survived in the ark (6023 years from creation).
7 BC—The year Jesus Christ was born (11,006 years from creation).
33 AD—The year Jesus Christ was crucified and the church age began (11,045 years from creation; 5023 calendar years from the flood).
1988 AD—This year ended the church age and began the great tribulation period of 23 years (13,000 years from creation).
1994 AD—On September 7th, the first 2300-day period of the great tribulation came to an end and the latter rain began, commencing God’s plan to save a great multitude of people outside of the churches (13,006 years from creation).
2011 AD—On May 21st, Judgment Day will begin and the rapture (the taking up into heaven of God’s elect people) will occur at the end of the 23-year great tribulation. On October 21st, the world will be destroyed by fire (7000 years from the flood; 13,023 years from creation).
ONE DAY IS AS 1000 YEARS
4990 + 2011 = 7001 <--Old Testament
Note: When counting from an Old Testament date to a New Testament date, always subtract one year because there is no year zero, resulting in:
4990 + 2011 – 1 = 7000 years exactly. <-- New Testament
I say it's dubious because of the discrepancy between old and new testament. So if one goes by the Old, the year will be 2012, if by the new, 2011. I can already hear the excuses warming up. "We mistook the date.. it's actually (insert date here)."
According to here, the time is supposed to be 6pm.
Now, when I read up on that a bit more I was baffled by one thing, it's supposed to be 6pm for each time zone. Apparently the end of the world minds time zones, how nice. I'll have to remember to ask Scott how he's doing post 6pm where he's at, since he's about 14 odd hours ahead of me. I then ask folks in Germany since they are six hours ahead what's up. You know, just in-case. I'll also deliver a play by play for those on the west coast, central and mountain times zones and any others that are farther than those.
No, I've not suddenly gone and gotten fanatical about god and began thumping a bible. Far from it. If it happens then it happens, if it doesn't then it doesn't. It's not about this or that, it's a faith thing, as long as you believe in what ever god or multiples there of, then you're covered. No one is really right or wrong, despite what many say. Besides that, I really believe that such a thing were to happen. We'd not have advanced warning about it aside from suddenly knowing the very instant it happens. No waiting for time zones.
That much aside, staving off the end of the world single handed isn't about to happen. Should one be worried about it? If it helps you sleep, by all means.
In other news, my father broke his hip and is in the hospital. the woman that was supposed to be taking care of him is under indictment for various forms of fraud, theft by conversion, endangerment of the elderly and I think several other offenses. He's technical ward of the state and I may be going to see him Saturday. I'll pack a gun or two just in-case it comes down to having to fight the way back home. I think at least one rifle and a pistol will do.
I'm thinking about writing a kindle book or a print book and I've got a decent start on one already. I just need to figure out how well it'll be received. I also need about 60-70k more words for it to be taken seriously. I figure i can add about 5-7k words a day, I'll get that in no time, provided the end of the world doesn't happen.
