It is profitable (pun) to consider the false prophets from the past to understand the false prophets of today and into the future.  You can learn a lot, many of these false teachers are deceived themselves and some appear to have very analytical minds -- too bad they waste their time in trying to prove that they can understand the Mind of our God and Father in Heaven.  Still, you can learn something from them, just be aware, they are convinced and want to convince you, just like all good Snake Oil sales people (had to say people because there are male and female deceivers).  What follows is a list I found on Wikipedia -- I have expanded it a bit, updating in a few places as well.  It seemed fitting to present from a date more people may associate with, even though the trail of False Prophets dates all the way back to the beginning of the First Christian Church.  If you want more, then click on "More Dates" at the top of this page.

From the 1970's to today (2017 ?)

The late Moses David (formerly David Berg) was the founder of the Christian religious group, The Children of God. He predicted that a comet would hit the earth, probably in the mid 1970's and destroy all life in the United States.

The True Light Church of Christ made its claim to fame by incorrectly forecasting the return of Jesus. A number of church members had quit their livelihoods ahead of the promised advent.

Herbert W Armstrong:  The second of three revised dates from Armstrong after his 1936 and 1943 predictions failed to come true.  

(ETM Note: HWA did not believe in the RAPTURE doctrine -- remember, I obtained this list of false prophecy from Wikipedia, and from personal experience.  What HWA did teach is that his church would be taken to a "place of safety", a place like Petra, located in modern Jordan.  Also, his Church was not named the Worldwide Church of God at this time.  Known only as the Church of God -- The teaching was that God would have His Name on His Church, thus -- Church of God.  Later, late in the 60s HWA tried to obtain a copyright on the name, Church of God, but was denied, after all, several Church groups had this name, but this did not stop HWA, he renamed his church the Worldwide Church of God.  Another problem arises with saying that God's Name is God -- There are many "gods" and many "lords" but only One true God -- so, what is His Name?  All the gods have names so what is the name of your god?  It is not enough to just say your god is god, give me a name, if you can.  YaHshua is the birth Name of our Savior, not JESUS, His Name is YaHshua.  The God of Israel is YHWH (YaHWeH), and no one argues that point or truth, but the deception surrounding our Savior's Name is all encompassing, the world over.  HWA nor his son Garner Ted Armstrong (GTA) ever accepted the true identity of our Creator.)

A comet that turned out to be a visual disappointment, nonetheless, compelled one preacher to announce that it would be a sign of the Lord's return.

The Jehovah's Witnesses were back at it in 1975. The failure of the forecast did not affect the growth of the movement. The Watchtower magazine, a major Witness periodical, has over 13 million subscribers.  

Armageddon, 1975; Jehovah's Witnesses; (Various publication, cited in Newsweek Oct. 15, 1984)

Herbert W Armstrong; (again) World Wide Church of God, now defunct, originallyy based at Pasadena California.  Sent out a booklet about nuclear war -- Armstrong's fourth and final prediction.  His legacy is being carried on by the Philidelphia Church of God, Edmond, OK, headed by Gerald Flurry.  All of HWA materials are reproduced and taught continually to this day, errors and all.  This includes British Israel teaching that the USA, Britian, and most of Northern Europe are the lost Ten Tribes of Israel.  This group also teaches that the now deceased HWA is still the end-time Elijah end-time prophet Malachi wrote about (Malachi 4:5).  This title has been abducted by many other false prophets over time -- but what did our Messiah tell us?  He told us that John the Baptist was that Prophet, that it was John who fulfilled that prophecy from Malachi (Luke 1:17 & Mat 11:12-15).  According to the prophecy, IF the Elijah prophet was not able to turn the hearts of the Children of Israel to the Father, that destruction would fall on them (Mal 4:5-6).  Most try to read this as if the End Time Prophet WILL turn the people around, and then apply this to themselves as opposed to Israel.  So, did this happen?  It most certainly did, the children of Israel rejected YaHshua as King and Savior and around 70 AD all of the Temple was leveled, and the Jewish form of worship was stopped.  Then some 70 years after this, all of Jerusalem was leveled.  To this very day the destruction of the Children of Israel continues and even though Modern Israel was begun in May of 1948, the Temple is still no more -- for over 2,000 years and counting -- the children having turned their hearts away from the Father, their fathers, and forefathers and have been cut off, having denied the Messiah, whom the Baptist John told them about, the very person that would have led them to the Father -- and now the children are no longer able to properly make sacrifices for their sins.   The late HWA is not and was not the Elijah -- YaHshua had already identified this EliYaH as John the Baptist.  All others are fakes.  

Brahman Kumaris; The Brahma Kumaris founder, Lekhraj Kirpalani, has made a number of predictions of a global Armageddon which the religion believes it will inspire, internally calling it "Destruction" but externally presenting it as "Transformation". During Destruction, Brahma Kumari leaders teach the world will be purified, all of the rest of humanity killed by nuclear or civil wars and natural disasters which will include the sinking of all other continents except India. All other religions will also be destroyed, so that they alone will inherit the Earth for 2,500 years. These predictions are generally hidden from outsiders and, as they have failed, have been removed from their literature.

1977 John Wroe; The founder of the Christian Israelite Church predicted this year for Armageddon to occur.

1977 William M. Branham; This Christian minister predicted the Rapture would occur no later than the year 1977.

We all remember the killer bee scare of the late 70's. One prophecy prognosticator linked the bees to Rev 9:3-12. After twenty years of progression and the bees are still in Texas, I'm beginning to think of them as the killer snails.

Sept. 10, 1979; Walter M. Simmons; (Booklet: The Day of the Lord, 1978, The final warning sign: June 28, 1967) "Therefore, adding the 12 years, 75 days to the June 28, 1967 date ends on September 10, 1979." (p. 24).

Leland Jensen; In 1978 Jensen predicted that there would be a nuclear disaster in 1980, followed by two decades of conflict, culminating in God's Kingdom being established on Earth.

HaL Lindsey boldly declared that "The Rapture" would occur before Dec. 31, 1981, based on Christian prophesy, astronomy and a dash of ecological fatalism. He pegged the date to Jesus' promised to return to Earth a generation after Israel's rebirth. He also made references to the "Jupiter Effect," a planetary alignment that occurs every 179 years, that would supposedly lead to earthquakes and nuclear plant meltdowns.

Rapture June 28, 1981; Bill Maupin & The Lighthouse Gospel Tract Foundation, Tucson. Figured a miscalculation; changed to Aug. 7, 1981; Return of Christ to occur May 14, 1988; based on FoundingState of Israel, May 15, 1948 (Gary DeMar, The Debate Over Christian Reconstruction, Ft. Worth: Dominion Press, 1988.)

Chuck Smith; The founder of Calvary Chapel predicted the generation of 1948 would be the last generation, and that the world would end by 1981. Smith identified that he "could be wrong" but continued to say in the same sentence that his prediction was "a deep conviction in my heart, and all my plans are predicated upon that belief."  (Note: This belief is most likely the result of interpreting YaHshua's word, when He said, "I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. (Mt 24:34), of course it never happened.  He would have been counting a generation as 40 years and then assuming the recognition Israel had become a nation again, in 1948 = 1988.  But, as the Evangelical teachers see it, the Rapture and the beginning of "tribulation" would be 7 years before that, making it 1981.  One problem with all of that is that if you go back and read the context, the previous verses found in Matthew 24, you will see that our Lord is talking to the "generation" that would witness certain things -- Like HIS SIGN in the Heavens.  Did Chuck Smith or anyone witness the Sign YaHshua mentioned?  No, they assumption ignores the devastating events that would mark the "generation" that would witness, or be living in a time our Savior outlines and that is still future.  Want to know what the SIGN is?  Read Revelation 6:12-17 -- the Sign of the Lamb, the Wrath of the Lamb, all found in the 6th Seal, and that is only the beginning.)  For more on this go to --  www.servantsofyahshua.com  or write, dan@servantsofyahshua.com

John Gribbin/Stephen Plagemann; Predicted in their 1974 book The Jupiter Effect that combined gravitational forces of aligned planets would create a number of catastrophes, including a great earthquake on the San Andreas Fault.

It was all going to end in 1982, when the planets lined up and created magnetic forces that would bring Armageddon to the earth.  Follow a quote, that quotes a once very popular news magazine, Newsweek.

"Scientists are forecasting that soon our solar system will experience some unique and sobering events. This forecast concerning 1982 comes from the scientific investigations of astronomers and is in no way related to astrology and fortune telling. The news is quoted from the September 16, 1974 edition of "Newsweek" magazine, science section. These are the conclusions of John Gribbin, science editor of "Nature" magazine, and of Stephen Plagemann of NASA's GoddardSpaceCenter in Maryland. These reputable scientists are pointing out that in the latter part of 1982 there will take place an event unique in our solar system. At that time all nine planets will be on the same side of the sun. That happens once every 179 years, but in 1982 the nine planets will not only be on the same side of the sun, but in perfect alignment. "Newsweek" referred to this situation as "An Apocalyptic Prediction:' In the book that these men have co-authored, "The Jupiter Effect", they point out that, just as the moon affects earth tides by its gravitational pull, so do the planets affect each other, and particularly Jupiter, because of its great size. This has been linked to the earthquake frequency on our planet earth. What will happen when all the planets come into one line and exert a united gravitational pull on our earth? These scientists speak of eight probable effects: 1) A disturbed magnetic activity in the sun, producing huge firestorms; 2) That the ionosphere of earth will be changed; 3) That radio and television communications will be disrupted; 4) That there will be weird lighting effects from aurora borealis; 5) There will be vast changes in wind patterns; 6) Rainfall and temperature patterns will change; 7) Earth's rotation, and the length of the days may change; 8) Many earthquakes will occur. "There will be many earthquakes, large and small... and one region where one of the greatest fault systems lies today, under great strain, long overdue for a giant leap forward, and just waiting for the necessary kick, is California." This is the frightening, apocalyptic vision of the scientists as quoted in "Newsweek." (Evangelical Tract Distributors, Edmonton, Alta., Canada)"
What we can learn from this is that "scientist" can act like "false Prophets" too.  Writing books, calculating and demonstrating, and be wrong, and those preachers and teachers , claiming to be speaking for God will quote them in order to sell their own books and name.  Hal Lindsay is still teaching -- mixing truth with sensational speculations as though it is all revelation **tagged** False Prophet.

A group called the Tara Centers placed full-page advertisements in many major newspapers for the weekend of April 24-25, 1982, announced: "The Christ is Now Here!" and predicted that he was to make himself known "within the next two months." After the date passed, they said that the delay was only because the "consciousness of the human race was not quite right..." Boy, all these years and we're still not ready.

Benjami Creme; Creme took out an ad in the Los Angeles Times stating that the Second Coming would occur in June 1982 with the Maitreya announcing it on worldwide television.

Maitreya?  Google gives he answer: According to Buddhist tradition, Maitreya is a bodhisattva who will appear on Earth in the future, achieve complete enlightenment, and teach the pure dharma. According to scriptures, Maitreya will be a successor to the present Buddha, Gautama Buddha (also known as Śākyamuni Buddha).

Pat Robertson; In late 1976 on his 700 Club TV programme, Robertson predicted that the end of the world would come in this year.

The Jehovah's Witnesses made sure in 1984 that no one else would be able to top their record of most wrong doomsday predictions. The Witnesses record is currently holding at nine. The years are: 1874, 1878, 1881, 1910, 1914, 1918, 1925, 1975, and 1984. Lately, the JW's are claiming they're out of the prediction business, but it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks. They'll be back.
1984 to 1999:

In 1983, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, Guru of the Rajneesh movement predicted massive destruction on earth, including natural disasters and man-made catastrophes. Floods larger than any since Noah, extreme earthquakes, very destructive volcano eruptions, nuclear wars etc. will be experienced. Tokyo, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Bombay will all disappear.

Lester Sumrall; This minister predicted the end in this year, even writing a book about it entitled "I Predict 1985".

Jose Arguelles; Argüelles claimed that Armageddon would take place unless 144,000 people gathered in certain places across the world in order to "resonate in harmony" on this day.

Moses David of The Children of God faith group predicted that the Battle of Armageddon would take place in 1986. Russia would defeat Israel and the United States. A worldwide Communist dictatorship would be established. In 1993, Christ would return to earth.

The Harmonic Convergence planned for Aug. 16-17, 1987, and several New Age events were to occur at that time. The second coming of the serpent god of peace and the Hopi dance awakening were two examples.

Edgar C. Whisenant; Whisenant predicted in his book 88 Reasons Why the Rapture Could Be in 1988 that the Rapture of the Christian Church would occur between September 11–13, 1988. After his September predictions failed to come true, Whisenant revised his prediction date to October 3. -- Again Whisenant, seeing his own failed prophecy, revised his date to October 3, 1988.  This is not unusual, when a prophecy fails, the deceiver and the deceived just keep trucking along in their own denial.

A personal account from a contributor of the list: "The book "88 Reasons Why the Rapture is in 1988" came out only a few months before the event was to take place. What little time the book had, it used effectively. By the time Sept 11-13 rolled around, whole churches were caught up in the excitement the book generated. I personally had friends who were measuring themselves for wings. In the dorm where we lived, my friends were also openly confronting all of the unsaved. It became my job to defuse to situations. In one case, an accosted sinner was contemplating dispensary action against my now distant friends. Finally, the days of destiny dawned and then set. No Jesus. The environment was not the same as Miller's 1844 failure. To my surprise, the taunting by the unsaved was very brief. I took it that people have very little understanding of the Bible, so they had nothing to taunt my friends with. I made one other interesting observation. The time for the rapture was a 3 day window from Sept 11 to the 13 - my friends had given up hope on the morning of 12. I pointed out that they still had 2 days left, but they had been spooked nonetheless."

Return of Christ: May 14, 1988; based on Founding State of Israel, May 15, 1948 Bill Maupin & The Lighthouse Gospel Tract Foundation, Tucson.; Rapture June 28, 1981; Figured a miscalculation; changed to Aug. 7, 1981 (Gary DeMar, The Debate Over Christian Reconstruction, Ft. Worth: Dominion Press, 1988.)

Tribulation begins in 1988; J R Church (Book: Hidden Prophecies in the Psalms, clearly hints that 1988 will be the year.) "Psalms 88-94 seem to describe the future seven years of Jacob's Trouble in chronological order. This is not to say that the Tribulation Period will begin in 1988" (p, 246).

After the passing of the deadline in 88 Reason's, the author, Edgar Whisenaunt, came out with a new book called "89 Reasons why the Rapture is in 1989." This book sold only a fraction of his prior release.

Rapture in Sept. 1989; Edgar C. Whisenant (Book: 88 Reasons Why the Rapture Will be in 1988; The Final Shout: Rapture Report 1989) Revised his thinking after it did not happen in 1988; documented in book Soothsayers of the Second Advent, Wm. Alnor

Elizabeth Clare Prophet; April 23 -- Prophet predicted a nuclear war would start on this day, with the world ending 12 years later, leading her followers to stockpile a shelter with supplies and weapons. Later, after Prophet's prediction did not come to pass, she was diagnosed with epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease.

In 1992, David Koresh of the Branch Davidian group in WacoTexas changed the name of their commune from Mt.Carmel to Ranch Apocalypse, because of his belief that the final all-encompassing battle of Armageddon mentioned in the Bible would start at the Branch Davidian compound. They had calculated that the end would occur in 1995. After a 51-day standoff, on 1993-APR-10, 76 members died as a result of a deliberately set fire.

Menachem Mendil Scneerson; Sept 9 -- This Russian-born rabbi called for the Messiah to come by the start of the Jewish New Year.

Louis Farrakhan; The leader of the Nation of Islam declared that the Gulf War would be the "War of Armageddon which is the final war."

A local group in Australia predicted Jesus would return through the SydneyHarbor at 9:00 am on 31st March, 1991.

Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan proclaimed the Gulf War would to be "the War of Armageddon ... the final War."

Menachem Schneerson, a Russian born rabbi, called for the Messiah to come by Sept 9, 1991, the start of the Jewish New Year.

A Korean group called Mission For The Coming Days had the KoreaChurch a buzz in the fall of 1992. They foresaw Oct 28, 1992 as the time for the Rapture. Numerology was the basis for the date. Several camera shots that left ghostly images on pictures was thought to be a supernatural confirmation of the date.

Lee Jang Rim; Oct. 28 -- Lee, the leader of the Dami Mission church, predicted the rapture would occur on this day.

Oct. 28, 1992, Rapture; Full page ad in USA Today, on Oct. 20, 1991, placed by the Hyoo-go (Rapture) movement. EP News service quoted one sect, "50 million people will die in earthquakes, 50 million from collapsed buildings, 1.4 billion from World War III and 1.4 billion from a separate Armageddon." (99 Reasons Why No One Knows When Christ Will Return, by B J Oropeza, Foreward by Hank Hanegraaff, IVP publishing, 1994)

"Some argue that nobody will know the coming of Jesus (Is it Jesus or YaHshua? I pick YaHshua as the son of God, His Birth Name, but these false prophets are all making prophecy in the name of JESUS -- so be it -- better a false name for a false prophecy) because the Bible says He will come as a thief. However, be alert, for He will come as a thief only to those who live in darkness, not to those who are in the light." The tract then quotes 1 Thessalonians 5;2,4 and Revelation 3:3 as proof for this assertion. Questions: Am I now "in the light" because I now "know" (??) it will be October 1992? Did the Thessalonians know this? What if an atheist read this tract? Ridiculous, isn't it!!! Our anonymous author continues. Jesus "knows and has revealed to thousands already!"

If the year 2000 is the end of the 6000 year cycle, then the rapture must take place in 1993, because you would need 7 years of the tribulation. This was the thinking of a number of prophecy writers.  
Note:  Simple math, but wrong math.  For one thing, according to modern calendars, and calculating backward to the time of the Christ we find the year 0 is not counted as a year, a missing space transitioning from BC to AD.  Then to top this off, there is a discrepancy as to when the year 0 really began.  The year 0 is supposed to be centered around the Birth of the Christ (Sorry world, but the accepted calendars of today are based on the Birth of the Christian/Jewish Messiah).  The problem is this date, year, is up to 7 years off -- some say the year 0 is supposed to be 4 BC, while others say, 7BC.  No matter, for this time of date setting in 1993, as the time has gone well past even with the date corrections.  And, for some reason everyone seems to be ignoring the Jewish/Hebrew count for the years -- 1993 is the year 5754 -- like I said, simple math -- if we go by the Hebrew years and we use the reasoning of so many fallen Christian prophets, that 6000 years are representative of 6 days, the finish of man's work, then 5754 from 6000 would mean we still have 246 years to go -- this year, 2017 is 5778, so, by the reasoning we still have 222 years to go, give or take 7 years, or so.  Why is it so hard to believe our Lord's own words -- for some, that is -- (Mat 24:36 KJV)  But of that day and hour knowes no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only. What?  Not even the Angels of Heaven?  Ah, but men know, man can determine -- on and on it goes. Maybe it is that mankind needs something immediate to look forward to, not being able to see the end of our own lives as but a flash in time -- faith is so very short, for most, apparently, and needs to be encouraged by more immediate promises, but what happens when those looking for the more immediate, or imminent answer is disappointed to find another false promise from the lips of false prophets comes to an end without the promise of His return?  

David Berg; Berg predicted the tribulation would start in 1989 and that the Second Coming would take place in 1993.

Neal Chase;  This Bahá'í sect leader predicted that New York would be destroyed by a nuclear bomb on March 23, 1994, and the Battle of Armageddon would take place 40 days later.

Harold Camping;  Sept 6, 29 & Oct 2 -- Camping predicted the Rapture would occur on September 6, 1994. When it failed to occur he revised the date to September 29 and then to October 2. AND MORE: 1995, March 31 -- Camping's fourth predicted date for the end. This would be Camping's last prediction until 2011 -- Failed again and again but continues to make predictions.  Harold Camping has died with all of his prophecy statements failing, proving once again that our Savior was not joking when He said no one would not the time, not even the angels in Heaven.

In the book "1994 the Year of Destiny" F. M. Riley foretold of God's plan to rapture His people. The name of his ministry is The Last Call and he operates out of Missouri.

Pastor John Hinkle of Christ Church Los Angels caused quite a stir when he announced he had received a vision for God that warned of apocalyptic event on June 9th, 1994. Hinkle, quoting God, said, "On Thursday June the 9th, I will rip the evil out of this world." At the time, I knew Hinkle's vision didn't match up with scripture. From a proper reading of Bible prophecy, the only thing that God could possible rip from the earth would be the Christian Church, and I don't think God would refer to the Church as "evil." Some people tried to reinterpret the Hinkle's unscriptural vision to mean that God would the rip evil out of our hearts when he raptured us. Well, the date came and went with no heart surgery or rapture.

Harold Camping in his book "Are You Ready?" predicted the Lord's return in Sept 1994. The book was full of numerology that added up to 1994 as the date of Christ's return.

After promising themselves they would not make any more end time predictions, the Jehovah's Witnesses fell off the wagon and proclaimed 1994 as the conclusion of an 80 year generation - the year 1914 was the starting point.

John Hinkle On Trinity Broadcasting Network quote: "The most cataclysmic experience that the world has ever known sine the resurrection is going to happen." He said, God said, "On Thursday, June the ninth, I will rip the evil out of this world." TBN's Paul Crouch later said maybe something was happening invisibly. (99 Reasons Why No One Knows When Christ Will Return, by B J Oropeza, Foreward by Hank Hanegraaff, IVP publishing, 1994)

Sept. 15, 1994: Last Day and Return of Christ; Harold Camping; Book: 1994 (pub in 1992) "Last Day and return of Christ sometime on or between September 15, 1994...and September 27, 1994." (p. 531) "I will be surprised if we reach October 1, 1994" (p. 533)

Armageddon Delayed! Jw’s

In early November 1995 Jehovah's Witnesses made newspaper headlines around the world. This time it was not a record crowd at a stadium convention or even a controversial blood transfusion case that attracted international attention, but the postponement of the End. One headline read: "Armageddon Not Coming," and the related article stated that Jehovah's Witnesses had announced that "Armageddon [had] been delayed and [that] the end of the world [was] no longer nigh." (Victoria Times-Colonist, Sunday 12 November 1995, p. A2) click here for full details

Shedan Nidle; Californian psychic Sheldan Nidle predicted that the world would end on this date, with the arrival of 16 million space ships and a host of angels.
Note:  This doesn't look like a Christian prediction, right, and some of the other don't either, but anytime some child of Satan invokes a biblical reference or suggestion, well, then, we can quote them.  In this case it is "Host of Angels" that suggests a biblical reference.

This had a special month, according to one author. He foresaw the month of Sept as the time for our Lord's return. The Church Age will last 2000 years from the time of Christ's birth in 4 BC.

California psychic Sheldon Nidle predicted the end would come when 16 million space ships converged upon the Earth on Dec. 17, 1996, along with a host of angels. Nidle explained the passing of the date by claiming the angles placed us in a holographic projection to preserve us and give us a second chance.

The book "The Return of Jupiter: End of the world in the light of the Bible" Dorrance Publishing, PittsburghPA predicted a disaster starting in the Pacific Ocean: "A terrible earthquake is going to break the oceanic earth crust under the Pacific Ocean by the year 1996AD.

Millennium Begins; Morgan Edwards (Book: Two Academical Exercises on Subjects Bearing the Following Titles: Millennium, and Las-Novelties written between 1742 adn 1744; pub 1788) Millennium to begin 3-1/2 years after the Rapture; (cited by John Bray reading The Life and Works of M Edwards, Thom. McKibbens Jr)

Since 1658, many Christians have accepted the calculations of James Ussher, an Irish archbishop, who estimated that the first day of creation occurred on 4004-OCT-23 BCE. This would make the time interval between the creation of the world and a common estimate of the birth of Christ to be precisely 4000 years. Some people believe that Ussher fudged the data to make it come out neatly. He also estimated that the end of the world would occur exactly 6000 years later, in the fall of 1996.

In regard to 1997, I've received several e-mail messages that pointed to a date when Jesus will return for his church. Two of the more widely known time frames was Monte Judah's FEB/MAR tribulation start and a May 14 rapture which was based on numerology and the Psalms.

When Rabin and Arafat signed their peace pact on the White House lawn on Sept 13, 1993, some saw the events as the begin of tribulation. With signing of the peace agreement Daniel's 1260 day countdown was underway. By Adding 1260 days to Sept, 1993; you get Feb 24, 1997.

Stan Johnson of the Prophecy Club saw a 90 percent chance that the tribulation would start Sept 12, 1997. He bases his conclusion on several end-time signs. The date of September 12 was chosen by Johnson because it will be Jesus' 2000th birthday and it will also be the day of atonement, although not what is currently the Jewish Day of Atonement. Further supporting evidence came from Romanian pastor Dumitru Duduman. In several heavenly visions, Dumitru claimed to had seen the book of life. In one of his earlier visions, there were several pages yet to be completed. In his last vision he noticed the book of life only had one page left. Doing some rough calculating, Johnson and friends figured the latest time frame for the completion of the book of life would have to be September 1997.

1997 or early 1998:
The 1997-JUL-29 issue of the Weekly World News carried a statement by a spokesperson of the International Association of Psychics. 92% of their 120,000 members have had the same "end time" vision. Spokesperson Madame Vredeau predicts: A rise in religious belief. Prophets and saints will appear and lead the faithful to safety The oceans will shrink. Deserts expand. Crops will fail; there will be massive starvation Widespread emotional and mental collapse; increase in crime and violence Changing weather patterns; basic laws of nature will be disrupted Satanic demons will appear in broad daylight. War, pestilence, a worldwide plague Mankind will disappear around the year 2001 CE.

Russian scientist Vladimir Sobolyovhas of the RerikhAcademy has analyzed prophesies made by Russian saints, by Nostradamus etc. (6) He announced his conclusions in1997-SEP: that the earth's axis will suddenly tilt about 30 degrees sometime during the next two years. This will submerge the Scandinavian countries and Britain under water, in what is termed the Armageddon Flood. Siberia will be spared. He expects that aliens will intervene and lead the world into the fourth dimension. Right now, these aliens are on earth, but in hiding. Sobolyovhas said: "If we completely believed in them, we would get lazy. So they are clever. They stay hidden in the fourth dimension and only show themselves from time to time.''

End of World in 1997; Japanese Religious Sect: Aum Shinri Kyo 3000 members; located at base of Mt.Fuji. The words "shinri kyo" mean "supreme truth" and in English it is known as Aum Supreme Truth. Said by ABC News to be radical group; thought to be manufacturing nerve gas ABC World News Tonight, Mar. 21, 1995 Also info from AOL news.

Dan Millar, of Surrey, BC, Canada and Bob Wadsworth of the Biblical Astronomy newsletter are two religious researchers. They are following the age-old tradition of looking for signs in the heavens for the arrival of the Antichrist, return of Christ, etc. Ancient prophecies told of heavenly events and even a cross in the sky in advance of momentous developments. Millar and Wadsworth have predicted the arrival of the Antichrist on APR-10. Dan suggested that we watch news from the Vatican and from Jerusalem on that day, because he expects some sort of coup by the Antichrist. He is expected to come to power in the Vatican as Pope Peter II. One heavenly indicator is the intersection by two comets of the star Algol in the constellation Perseus. Comets Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp intersected the star on the same date (APR-11) on two adjacent years (Hyakutake in 1996 and Hale-Bopp in 1997). Plotting the two comets' trajectories over the period APR-1 to APR-30 on the two years forms an almost perfect cross. They intersect between the eyes of the Medusa head that Perseus is holding in his left hand. "Algol" means "Demon Star" in Arabic. The head is known as Rosh Satan (the head of Satan) in Hebrew. There will be one further heavenly sign: on the evening of APR-10, there will be a lunar occultation of the star Aldebaran in the constellation Taurus.

The 1997-JUL-29 issue of the Weekly World News reported that the biggest end of the world scare since the Cuban missile crisis was circulating through Washington. President Clinton called a secret meeting with leading Bible scholars for the week of JUL-27. A confidential Pentagon memo sparked the scare; it predicts a worldwide cataclysm of unprecedented proportions. Earthquake activity is on a rise and will peak at year-end; the earth's crust is shifting ominously.

The Vortex of the Star of David religious sect of Luskville, Quebec was quoted (2) as predicting the end of the world on Saturday, MAR-8. A father, Jean Leon Marcoux, was interviewed; he was worried because his children will be visiting their mother at the sect's commune on that weekend. He approached the Quebec police but was unable to get them to take any action. A spokesperson for the sect stated that they do not have a doomsday scenario.

The Sacerdotal Knights of National Security report that "A space alien captured at a UFO landing site in eastern Missouri cracked under interrogation by the CIA and admitted that an extraterrestrial army will attack Earth on November 27 with the express purpose of stripping our planet of every natural resource they can find a use for -- and making slaves of every man, woman and child in the world!"

A Jewish group, called theTemple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement were expected to attempt to place the cornerstone of a new temple on the TempleMount in Jerusalem. This is a small piece of real estate that is the most sacred spot in the world to Jews, and one of the most sacred to Muslims. The Rapture Readyhome page has predicted that the "Tribulation" would be triggered by that event. Previous attempts had failed either because of riots, or police action. There was one report that they were going to try to airlift the stone by helicopter this time. On OCT-20, several thousand police officers were deployed throughout Jerusalem; they successfully prevented access to the TempleMount.

Numerology: Because 666 times three equals 1998 some people point to this years as being a prophetically significant year. I had someone call me long distance just so they could pass on to me this earth shattering news.

A Taiwanese cult operating out of GarlandTexas predicted Christ would return on Mar 31 of 1998. The group's leader, Heng-ming Chen, announced God would return, and then invite the cult members aboard a UFO. The group abandoned their second coming prediction when a precursor event failed to take place. The cult's leader said God would appear on every channel 18 of every TV in the world. Maybe God realized at the last minute, the Playboy Network was channel 18 on several cable systems, and he didn't want to have Christians watching a porn channel.

On Apr 30, 1998 - when Israel will be age 50 - The tribulation could start. The reasoning for this date has to do with God's age requirement for priesthood, which is between 30-50.

Marilyn Agee in her book "The End of the Age" has her sights set on May 31, 1998. This date will conclude the 6000 year cycle from the time of Adam. Agee looks for the Rapture to take place on Pentecost also known as the feast of weeks. Another indicator is the fact that the Holy Spirit did not descend upon the until 50 days from Christ's resurrection before descending on the Church. Israel was born in 1948, add the 50 days and you come up with 1998. If this prophecy fails, numerology will mark itself as one of the most unreliable method of foretelling and yet the most repeated. After her May 31 rapture date failed, Agee, lacking the ability to face up to her error, continued her date setting by using various scripture references to pointing to June 7, 14, and 21.

Centro is a very active religious organization, largely centered in the Philippines. They predict that the world will come to an end in 1998. They recommend that their followers retreat to safe places.

The famous psychic Edgar Cayce predicted that a secret, underground chamber would be discovered between the paws of the Great Sphinx. Inside, there will be documents revealing the history of Atlantis. This revelation will trigger the Second Coming of Christ. This prediction is rather interesting, because two independent studies have revealed that there is in fact an underground structure just where Cayce said it would be!

Edgar Casey predicted that the earth would have a new pole during the winter of 1997-1998. Since the earth spins like a gyroscope, this would take an enormous amount of energy to achieve. That amount of energy would cause a massive disruption to the oceans and the earth's crust. That could, in turn, cause very serious, worldwide tidal waves, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

The Church of the Subgenius predicts that on "X Day", the end of the world will occur. At that time, "the Men from Planet X, or XISTS, will arrive on Earth, close a deal with "Bob," rupture the card-carrying Ordained SubGenii up to the Escape Vessels of the Sex Goddesses, and destroy the remaining population of Earth, VERY VERY SLOWLY." Bob is J.R. Dobbs, leader and High Epopt of the Church of the SubGenius, Living Avatar of Slack, the Saint of Sales. He was responsible for founding the Church on a shifting, sandy beach of hypocrisy."

About 150 followers of a Taiwanese Christian-Buddhist spiritual sect have moved into GarlandTX (a suburb in northern Dallas) to await God's arrival. On MAR-25, God is expected to broadcast a commercial on Channel 18 in Garland. He will then be reincarnated into a man on MAR-31 at 10:00 AM, local time. They expect to draw a crowd of about one million who want to be touched by God. Their leader, Hoh-Ming Chen, selected Garland because it sounds like "God land". News reports from Taiwan indicated that the group plans to commit mass suicide if God does not appear. These appear to be unfounded.

The House of Yahweh, Abilene (™) predicts that an end-of-world scenario will start during 1998-OCT. By mid-2001, they predict that 80% of the world's population will have been killed as a result of nuclear warfare.

TV newscaster-turned-psychic Charles Criswell King said in 1968 that the world as we know it will cease to exist on August 18, 1999.
1999 arives and poof, we are still here

1999 - Sept - 30: Second Coming of Jesus Christ predicted by Kirk Nelson using Edgar Cayce's Predictions in correlation with the Christian Bible.

Hon-Ming Chen has founded God's Salvation Church in Texas. The group believes that a nuclear war will destroy parts of Earth in 1999. They have identified a nine-year old boy as the "Jesus of the East", a reincarnation of Jesus Christ. They believe that if they can link him up with the "Jesus of the West" then 100 million lives will be spared. The second Jesus is supposed to live in VancouverBC, look like Abraham Lincoln, and have been born in late 1969. Their search was unsuccessful.

1999-AUG-11 etc.:
The WWW site CALENdeRsign® lists a number of astronomical events that will happen as the millennium closes. There has always been an association between such alignments and momentous events in the mind of the public. Starting in late 1999, the following will be observed: 1999-AUG-11: total solar eclipse; visible from Europe 2000-JAN-21: total lunar eclipse; visible in Europe and US 2000-APR: Triple planetary conjunction involving Mars, Jupiter & Saturn 2000-MAY: "Great Conjunction" of Jupiter and Saturn. This also occurred in 7 BCE and is thought by some to be the star that some of the Gospels mentioned as leading the three wise men to Jesus.

According to the 1997-MAY-27 issue of Sun Magazine, the Anti-Christ is alive today and living in the Middle East. On AUG-11, the time of an eclipse of the sun, he will make himself known to the world. "It will be the ultimate war." Many will perish, and their souls will travel to Heaven or Hell, depending upon which side that they supported during the conflict.

According to the latest interpretation of Biblical prophecy by the Branch Davidian sect, 5 months of major torment will begin as the sixth seal is fulfilled.

Sun Magazine listed a prediction of "Bible expert" Dotson Meade. He predicts that "something will happen that brings about the war which will end the world as we know it... There will be a vicious cycle of storms and earthquakes that lead to the final battle the world has awaited." This date was derived from information in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

According to the 1997-JUN-24 issue of Sun Magazine Pope John XXIII predicted in 1962 that visitors from outer space will arrive in chariots of flaming steel and will share their advanced knowledge with humanity. Our life span will be increased to 150 years or longer. Most diseases will be wiped out.

The House of Yahweh A former kibbutz worker named Jacob — renamed himself, Yisrael — Hawkins started the House of Yahweh, a group that prophesies that the end of the world will arrive very soon if the laws of Yahweh set down in the Bible are not universally obeyed, and the temple in Jerusalem not rebuilt to lie side by side with the Dome of the Rock Mosque. Hawkins has about 3,000 followers who believe he will announce the second coming of Jesus before being murdered by Satan. (Apocalypse Really Soon: ABC news, Jan 5, 1999)

Concerned Christians This group, whose members were ordered deported from Israel, was started by Monte Kim Miller, who used to run an anti-cult network in Denver. People who know the cult say Miller believes he is the last prophet on Earth before Armageddon. Miller, who reportedly believed he talked to God each morning before he went to work, was said to claim that America was Satan and the government evil. Miller has predicted he will die on the streets of Jerusalem in December 1999 but will rise from the dead three days later. (Apocalypse Really Soon: ABC news, Jan 5, 1999)

Sukyo Mahikari A secretive Japanese group said by former members to spread a neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic dogma, it has established itself as a charitable organization in England. A group leaflet says as the year 2000 approaches, "mankind might be annihilated by the baptism of fire." Similar language turned up in Aum Shinrikyo materials. Aum Shinrikyo was the cult famous for the deadly sarin gas attack in Tokyo. A spokesman for Sukyo Mahikiri has denied the cult is linked to Aum Shinrikyo or that it is anti-Semitic. (Apocalypse Really Soon: ABC news, Jan 5, 1999)

Elohim City In the Cookson Hills of eastern Oklahoma lies the fortress-town of ElohimCity, where about 100 heavily armed inhabitants work, pray and conduct paramilitary drills. A former Mennonite preacher named Robert Millar, 73, who envisions a white Christian nation in North America, runs ElohimCity in anticipation of an Asiatic invasion of the United States, an attack he considers inevitable. Millar, inspired by fundamentalist Christianity, KKK-style racism and astrology, believes that Christ has been revealing himself for the last two millennia. He also preaches that a series of disasters is about to strike, probably soon after the year 2000, during which time the unworthy and wicked will be cleansed from the Earth. Convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh phoned friends of his in ElohimCity before the blast. (Apocalypse Really Soon: ABC news, Jan 5, 1999)

Numerology: If you divide 2000 by 3, you will get the devil's number 666.66666666666667.

The names of the people and organizations that have called for the return of Christ, at the turn of the century, is too long to be listed here. I would say that if there is day that Christ cannot come back on, it must be Jan 1, 2000. To come at an unknown time means an unknown time. I think Jan 2, 2000 would be a more likely day for Him to call His Church home - right after the big let down.

On May 5, 2000, all the planets are supposed to be in alignment. This will cause the earth to suffer earthquakes, volcanic eruption, and various other nasty stuff. A similar alignment occurred in 1982 and nothing happened. People fail to realize that the other 9 planets only exert a very tiny gravitation pull on the earth. If you were to add up the gravitational force from the rest of the planets, the total would be only amount to fraction of the tug the moon has on the earth.

Michael Drosnin, author of "The Bible Code," found a hidden message in the Pentateuch (the first five books in the Bible) that predicts that World War III, involving a worldwide atomic [sic] holocaust, will start in 2000 (or perhaps 2006).

Dr. Dale SumburËru looks for March 22, 1997, to be "the date when all the dramatic events leading through the tribulation to the return of Christ should begin" The actual date of Christ's return could be somewhere between July 2000 and Mar 2001. Dr. SumburËru is more general about the time of the Christ's second coming than most writers. He states, "The day the Lord returns is currently unknown because He said [Jesus] these days are cut short and it is not yet clear by how much and in what manner they are cut short. If the above assumptions are not correct, my margin of error would be in weeks, or perhaps months."

Begin of Jesus' reign from Jerusalem; Lester Sumerall; Book: I Predict 2000 AD; "I predict the absolute fullness of man's operation on planet Earth by the year 2000 AD. Then Jesus Christ shall reign from Jerusalem for 1000 years." (99 Reasons Why No One Knows When Christ Will Return, by B J Oropeza, Foreward by Hank Hanegraaff, IVP publishing, 1994)

Rapture; Implied in Hal Lindsay's revision. 1st said 1948+40=1988; Later Israel did not have land until 1967 War; 1967+40=2007; Rapture would be seven years earlier in order to excape the coming tribulation.  Still, Hal Lindsay and others, like Tim LaHaye have all proven to be very good teachers and very adept at mixing truth with fiction -- very entertaining but take them serious at your own risk.  They are more like spirit mediums, only right about half the time, and this margin of error does not make them or anyone else a prophet of the living God.

According to the 1997-JUN-24 issue of Sun Magazine Pope John XXIII predicted in 1962 that Christ would appear in the sky over New York City. He will announce the creation of a 1000-year paradise, to be proceeded by six months of great sorrow.

According to the 1997-JUN-24 issue of Sun Magazine Pope John XXIII predicted in 1961 that Doomsday will begin with the detonation of an atomic bomb in a major European city by a Libyan terrorist group. This will trigger a massive six-month war that will cause the deaths of millions of people.  Under President Regan, Libya gave up their nuclear weapons and program.  So much for the Pope being any kind of prophet.

William Cooper, head of a militia group in St. John'sAZ, predicted that on this date the secret chambers of the Pyramid at Giza will be opened. Its secrets will be revealed and Satan will become a public figure. The American militia will engage in a massive war at this time. This, and the previous prediction, are the only two that we have been able to find which agree on the same day. Of course, it is an obvious date to select, because most people believe that the next millennium begins then. It doesn't; it starts one year later on 2001-JAN-1.

According to Weekly World News of 1997-NOV-18, the CIA has caught a space alien who had crash-landed on JUN-20 in a New Mexico desert. He is from a species that is considerably more developed, both mentally and spiritually, than mankind. He is only survivor of the destruction of his world - a planet some 200 light years from Earth. He reports that God is "furious with His creations everywhere." Apparently none of the species that he created turned out at all well. So, god is systematically working his way across the galaxies, setting fires to the planets and exploding them one by one. Earth will be next!

The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in front of Taurus and the coming back of the Star of Bethlehem like 7.B.C. Some people expect a supernatural event comparable to the birth of Jesus.

Dan Millar, mentioned above, estimates this date as that of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Four events happen on that day, a Thursday. The sidereal day is reset. It is also the Jewish New Year, using the Canaanite calendar that was in use within ancient Israel prior to the Babylonian Captivity. It is the time of the Jewish "Feast of Jubilees" according to a message given by the Virgin Mary to Father Stefan Gobbi. This feast occurs only once every fifty years. This date is also the Autumn Equinox.

Jack Van Impe Ministries sponsors the largest Evangelical Christian program devoted to end-time prophecy. In his home page, he discusses his book "On the Edge of Eternity" in which he predicts that the year 2001 will "usher in international chaos such as we've never seen in our history." He predicts that in 2001, and the years following, the world will experience "drought, war, malaria, and hunger afflicting entire populations throughout the [African] continent...By the year 2001, there will be global chaos." Islam will become much larger than Christianity. (That would take a sudden growth spurt; Islam is currently followed by 19% of the world's population vs 33% for Christianity). A one-world church will emerge; it will be "controlled by demonic hosts."Temple rituals (presumably including animal sacrifice) will resume in Israel.

Because there was no year 0, the true millennium will not start until Jan 1, 2001. Most prophetic watchers still have their sights set on 2000. If the date passes uneventful, I'm sure they'll realize their error and refocus on this year.

Charles Spiegel, a retired psychology professor, preaches from a small town near San DiegoCA that the ancient land of Atlantis will emerge from the Caribbean circa 2001 CE. Shortly thereafter, 1000 extra-terrestrials from "Myton" in 33 spaceships will land there and bring new knowledge to humanity.

Beginning of the Millennium, not the end of the world, 1000yrs yet to go. Jack Van Impe; TV show: JVI Presents week of 1-15-1995l; Rather Vague but cites Jewish Catholic and Christians as well as Notradamus

Sun Magazine reported in its 1997-OCT-14 issue that Noah's Ark has been discovered intact in undamaged form on a slope near Mount Ararat in Turkey. Inside were a group of 6 copper-gold-silver scrolls, each 12" square. Scroll 2 reveals that the sun will superheat the earth, melting both polar ice caps, and creating a world-wide flood. Scroll 3 reveals that Doomsday is set for 2001-JAN-31. Good people who repent of their sins will be saved; cruel tyrants will be cast into the burning fires of Hell.

This date for Jesus' return is based upon Psalmology, numerology, the biblical 360 days per year, Jewish holidays, and "Biblical astronomy." To figure out this date you'll need a calculator, a slide rule, and plenty of scratch paper.

Arnie Stanton noted on 1997-SEP-16 that that evening was the fourth Jewish festival since 1996-APR-3 on which a lunar eclipse occurred. (7) He quotes Luke 21:25-26 which mentions "signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars and on the earth distress of nations" He believes that "these recent lunar eclipses are the last known astronomical signs that will preceed a 7 year (360 day/year) countdown to Armageddon/Christ's return to the Earth." He expects that Christ's return will occur within a few months of 2004-SEP-29 when Asteroid Toutatis will make a very close approach to the Earth - perhaps even a collision!

A False teacher named Shelby Corbett, of Bradenton, Florida has put up benches throughout town advertising the rapture will happen in 2007! She has little Bible knowledge and is tying to make money selling her book.

End of world; Implied in Hal Lindsay's revision. 1st said 1948+40=1988; Later Israel did not have land until 1967 War; 1967+40=2007; Rapture seven years earlier, of course. Also now says generation from 60-80 yrs. Puts it also at 2040, 2047.  All you have to do to be a modern day prophet is do like Hal Lindsay -- at each failure just keep moving the date out.  Not even embarrassed about his failed attempts at telling us what God thinks, and no apologies either.  Why do people continue to listen to him?  (2 Timothy 4:3) For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.  What?  People really do want to hear this?  Yes, many do, this is a kind of excitement, adventure, or deep pleasure in the idea you know the truth and will escape while all others, whom you may have warned, get their just punishment.  It is all very exciting and scary and fun to contemplate.  Yes, some people enjoy hearing about the destruction of humanity -- other have a fearful respect for what is to eventually happen to fallen man, but not in such an entertaining way as those in the ranks of Hal Lindsay and others present it.

2008 - 2012, Ronald Weinland a modern day example of a true false prophet, being deceived himself and deceiving others:

April 17, Weinland's book: 2008, God's Final Witness -- http://www.ronaldweinland.com/ His proclaimation proving himself a false prophet:

"If it doesn’t come to pass…starting in April, then I’m nothing but a false prophet…" (Quote from Ronald Weinland, 2008 - God's Final Witness, Church of God)

More of his final proclamations:
There’s already been six seals opened up…and the world is ignorant of it…The seventh seal they will know though… (Ronald Weinland, 2008 - God's Final Witness, Church of God)

The destruction of the United States, we are the first to suffer…I wouldn’t want to be in Chicago, Los Angeles, or New York… (Ronald Weinland, 2008 - God's Final Witness, Church of God)

By the fall of 2011, that’s when Jesus Christ returns… (Ronald Weinland, 2008 - God's Final Witness, Church of God) (Ronald Weinland, 2008 - God's Final Witness, Church of God)

A little after April…a dollar bill won’t be worth anything…We’re going to be brought down the tubes, very quickly, starting in April…What happens when a nuclear weapon goes off in New York and Chicago?… (Ronald Weinland, 2008 - God's Final Witness, Church of God)

If we come to the point in time where what I’ve said doesn’t come to pass, the reality is that I’m just a false prophet. That’s the bottom line… The reality is if it doesn’t happen, then you’re just false…I’ll acknowledge my error, my wrong, if I’m wrong… (Ronald Weinland, 2008 - God's Final Witness, Church of God)

By January 2009, we (the United States) will be down the tubes… (Another faulty proclamation from Ronald Weinland, 2008 - God's Final Witness, Church of God).  As of this date RW has proven and even declared himself a false prophet but like so many others before him he reconstitutes himself with more faulty proclamations, and followers defend him, even after his failures in talking for God.  These small beasts have no shame.


A deluded follower of "Wacky Weinland" self propclaimed False Prophet writes a defense (a failed defense, but interesting):

The defender of Weinland begins: "Eager anticipation of just what is going on in terms of bible prophecy etc. Well let me give you an update:"

"The 1335 days of Daniel 7 started the countdown to the second coming, the sealing of the 144,000 on Feb 2. and Satan's grip on the scattered brethren began to loosen. The 1260 day is April 17th. This will be the blowing of the first trumpet of the last 7. It will be marked by major events. One is probably a nuclear attack on the U.S. which may occur on that day, a bit before or a bit after - but no later tan April 30, the other is an event to take place in Washington when the present Pope will make a speech. At this time Satan will enter him and be in charge of him from then on. A possibility is that this Pope may die soon. April 17 also marks the day that the 2 witnesses will begin to do their work. On April 19 is the Passover and Ronald Weinland will reveal the identity of the other witness. ........As well watch for the probable deaths of the leaders of some of the major offshoots of the WCG- like the UCG, LCG and PCG, not to mention the imminent deaths of many celebrities in the fields of entertainment and sports!........All sounds a bit far-fetched eh! Well time will tell and this month will be over in 30 days. If nothing happens, who knows, I may be looking into your church a bit more deeply. ...."

April has come and gone, Weinland becomes a self proclaimed false prophet and a true follower of this faker needs to start looking into things "more deeply" and looking for another church (hope he stays out of mine) -- the deceived continue try to cover their heads from the falling debris of their careless, lying words -- supporting deceived liars like Weinland makes you as guilty as he is at slaying the innoence.

Here we go Again, 2012 and Weinland recycles himself again:

It seems Mr Weinland was not finished after all.  Checking his website it seems he has managed to twist his prophet-ship into the popular May 27, 2012 deception.  We know this to be a deception because it has come and gone already, as of this writing.  But he is not finished, he know says the "day of the Lord" is really the "year of the Lord" and will occur in 2013.  This is a common tactic of false prophets, telling the faithful that what they knew to be true because of super natural revelation to them they know when He, our Lord, is coming.  When this does not happen they then say they did not fully understand their previous revelation and now it has been revealed to them a more accurate meaning -- this or that, blah, blah, blah, not that's the truth.  Can you imagine if the Apostle John had written the Book of Revelation this way?  

Ronald Weinland apparently disagreed with his fellow prophet in crime, Harold Camping by only 6 days.  Weinland and his followers were probably having a good laugh, at Harold's expense, when May 21, 2012 came and went.  Wonder who was laughing when May 27, 2012 came and went?

May 21, 2011? And Harold Camping

Harold Camping and some other religious nuts are forcasting the end by this same date -- so it must be true, right? This date has come and gone and the date has been replaced, with the usual excuses, to October 2011, then December 21, 2011 -- now 2012 is the target.

Other Prophets, Some from Outspace:
Of course these dates have come and gone.  Now the 2012 crowd is thickening again, like broken bones rehealing over and over creating a crippled and bent body that can hardly move, still, they keep coming back.  But you must know that the majority of these end-time prophets are not Christians at all, as some assume.  Yes, there is a good many records of the false Chrsitian prophets, or, more accurately, "professing Christian prophets", but the most fantastic prophets are from some other spirit.  Some do use the Bible, at times, trying to blend their wierd and fantastic visions and teachings to prove their theories, while others claim their messages come from extraterestial communications.   

A good example of this kind of false prophets can be found all over the internet and inparticular, YouTube. For a quick view into this world of lies and deceptions and two faced, triple faced cons by individuals gaining attention, sometimes world wide attention just go to WIKIPEDIA and type in Hercolubus and you will see how often these false prophets fail and still continue to find backing.  

It is truly a wonder how these false prophets, some religious, some of new religions, some of UFO connections continually fail in their false claims and still have loyal followers, even with a growing number of readers and followers.  This, for me, proves how fragile humanity is in the face of deception.  Look at the 911 truthers, so certain the US government carried out the 911 Twin Towers disaster to encourage the people of the US into a war on terror.

The Truthers, as they like to call themselves, are anything but that.  It does not take a mental giant to see the flaw in this kind of deception.  For one thing, the USA did not need an excuse, it was already at war with Islamic terrorist dating back to the seventies and even into the sixties.  The USA already had attacked terrrorist and evil in the Middle East.  Now these groups, as well as some of the UFO contactees, are putting out misinformation concerning the government building death camps for rebelious citizens.  It never ends and its not just from those claiming to be Christians.  

There is coming some events the Holy Bible tells us about but, for the most part, we will not know these things to be true until after we witness the events.  The prophetic words of the Holy Bible will prove who the True God is and prove the truth of His Words.  As they say, the proof is in the taste of the pudding -- the world has already tasted some of the truth of the prophetic words of Scripture.  Many things have happened, historically, proving the truth of this Holy Book.  Many choose to ignore the correctness of past prophetic events.  The past prophetic events of Scripture has been so accurate as to raise the hackles on the critics claiming these events must have been written after the fact.  These critics, however, would not believe even if someone were raised from the dead.  

There is events still on the horizon, future events the Hebrew Scripture and the Christian Scripture speaks of, still in front of us, and the generation to live through the times to come will be witnesses to the truth of His Word, not the words of men.  Go to this link for more coverage on this

Here we are, again:

Mark Alexander and his small book, The Mystery Unlocked --

His declaration surrounds July 27, 2012.  He, like others before him, are convinced our Lord is revealing things only to him and he is revealing this date to the believers as a warning to prepare for the "rapture".  He too, like those before him, will come up with some other understanding after he realizes his first understanding (secret revelation) was wrong.  Now, just who would be playing tricks like that?  Hum, let me think, the Devil, maybe?  I am sure he will devine a way around his faulty thinking, his decieved mind and path.  How many of these false prophets repent?  I have heard of none, they just keep right on going, one lie after another.

Michael Noordhoek, another self proclaimed prophet has set his prophecy on July 19, 2012
http://www.repairingthebreach.info/ There are so many others it is a labor to look them all up. It is getting so that a prophecy of the month is being proclaimed These people give the true believer a black eye. Among the world ofrelatives and coworkers they make us look like a bunch of boobs readyto believe anything. They cause those being called, at times, to hesitatein answering the call. It gets to the point so much of this stuff makes the true word, for those who do not read their bible, is wrong. Christians may become ashamed to admit they are beleivers because of these decieved people.  (2Ti 3:13) while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. (Luke 21:8) He replied: "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and, 'The time is near.' Do not follow them.

We see that the message of these imposters is that the Christ of the Bible is the Messiah, that is not denied and what then is the warning? Deception! And we are told not to "follow" these proven false prophets.  December 21, 2012 -- Mayan end of the Age -- Some calling for the End of the World. Well, here we are, that date too has come and gone. Want to hear the real truth, read, Revelation 6:12-17 and you will read the truth about what is to happenbefore the return of our Savior -- the world will not end, but some will think it is and some will pray it is. It will be frightening, and it will be a worldwide event, but not the end. Things may happen between now and then but the only words to trust are the Words our Savior gave to the Apostle John to give to us -- His words and only His words.  Revelation Great Quake  Have comments?

JUMPING AHEAD 2017 -- If you have read this far you can see the obvious pattern -- there is no lack or false prophets.  Of course the false prophets actually date back to the beginning of mankind,  but it seemed prudent to list only a time period within the generations that are closer to His return.  Yes, evey generation, since the resurrection of our Lord has experienced its share of prophetic proclamation declaring their generation to be living in the End generation.  As we can see, they were wrong, but one thing is sure, we are closer to His enviable return, but along with this belief we must also accept the fact that we have many prophetic proclamation to happen or come to reality, materializing into fact.  
The year 2017 has been declared the time of His coming by many online, YouTube prophets, September of 2017 to be more specific.  These false prophets, of every stripe, have wormed their way through the internet selling this false, and soon proven to be failed prophecy, not from the Bible but from outside sources -- like Blood Moons and other natural events, having nothing to do with what is really to come. Of course these false teachers use the Bible and words from the bible to support their theories, theories taught as truth.  They pick up on biblical references to times and seasons and signs as meaning some kind of secret uncovering of prophetic messages from the weather, the sun, the moon and the stars.  Certainly these are for determining seasons, and when the time comes that the weather is turned on its head and when it appears the heavens are falling, those will be signs when they happen, but to attempt to proclaim these in advance, as though a person knows the mind of our Creator is very dangerous, to themselves and others.  As witnesses, we are called to witness and what does a witness do?  A witness observes what is and does happen.  These witnesses are witnessing to their own imaginations and fictional writings.  

The 2017, soon to be failed prophecy began around 2011.  Of course that would mean that sometime around 2014 the Rapture would have had to have happened -- opps, no rapture.  Do not confuse the Rapture Doctrine with the Resurrecrtion doctrine of the Bible.  The Rapture has to do with a supposed secret return of our Lord to pick up or, "snatch up" millions of believers into Heaven to wait out the Tribulation period.  Some (most) teach that 3.5 years before YaHshua, the Messiah returns and the Rapture will happen throwing the world into a panic and bringing about the great tribulation of another 3.5 years -- 7 years total.  Still, others teach a complete seven year time in the safety of Heaven.  

As it stands, the September, 2017 could not be correct, as they figure it, because the rapture they teach never happened.  If the date were correct, the rapture would have happened in 2014 -- I know I am repeating, but it is an important point, and still, if you check Youtube, you will see hundreds of prophetic proclamation about our Lord's return on that month in that year, this year, 2017 -- some are now teaching that this is the time of the Rapture -- of course they have to say that now, because 2014 has come and gone and no Rapture.  There is every kind of calculation you can think of, some quite convincing, but all wrong.  They all ignore or have some lame excuse for side stepping our Lord's admonition not to set dates (Acts 1:7, Mat 24:36).  What is amazing is how people of all intellectual levels listen to these charlatans.  It is not according to the Word it is wrong, even if it is partly correct or seems to be sort of correct, or is not completely, then it is not right -- if it is not 100% correct it is not right, not correct and in error -- AND not from HIM.  They may use His Words, mixed with their own imaginations, very similar to a tree that gives good and bad fruit, or composed of good and evil.  Satan, himself, deals in truth, but a truth mixed with deception, with lies.  Back a cake, according to the ingredients but either added or replace the flour with sand and see what you get.  His word is sort of like that, if you use it but add some different ingredients, it can become very gritty, inedible.
The following page gets into certain common sense and spiritual understandings that must be considered before a prophecy can, or should be considered as from our Lord or our Heavenly Father.  They, our Heavenly Father and our Savior, YaHshua, do not speak in half truths or failed truths, only men do that. But, the following page will give you an outline of what has to happen before our Lord can, or will, return and when you read it you will see how much more there is and how very serious the coming events will be -- the planet we live on will seem to be threatened with extinction, something much more extreme than is being taught.  Want the real truth?  Follow this Link
