Doomsday THIS Saturday!

(Heavy sigh!)

The end of the world is being predicted by a man from New York. His prediction is that the world will end this coming Saturday just before 6 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

A New York man spent his entire $140,000 life savings advertising his prediction that the world will end May 21, the New York Post reported Friday.

Robert Fitzpatrick, a 60-year-old Staten Island resident, said he spent at least that sum on 1,000 subway-car placards and ads on bus kiosks and subway cars.

They say, “Global Earthquake: The Greatest Ever! Judgment Day May 21, 2011.”
In a self-published book, “The Doomsday Code,” Fitzpatrick said the Bible offers “proof that cannot be dismissed.”

Read more here. Just allow me to dismiss this guy. I know these people are everywhere. The only reason he is getting attention is that he spent so much money trying to make his case. I hope this lesson is worth the money for him. If Jesus says that no one knows the time or the date, why does this man think he does know? Again… heavy sigh.
BTW, it has occurred to me that he thinks he will make his $100,000 and more this week when his book flies off the bookshelves so that every one else will know what he says he knows. I’m sure there are enough New Yorkers to buy into his scheme.

  1. I really think his motivation is in selling his books.

    Now, what will happen when the Lord doesn’t return? He will spiritualize the end of the world and pull a Harold Camping on us.

  2. My point is since no man knows the day or the hour, we can be assured the world will definitely NOT end on Saturday, because that would make the Bible wrong, and the man right.

    He is right..
    I have studied the ancient writings for 20 years in both greek and hebrew and the say that Saturday will be the end of times. Repent now, all you Democrats and Liberals for the misery and contemp you have brought upon this once proud and free God loving Country!

  4. Perhaps I can find someone who believes this nonsense and convince him to give me all his money and property, since he won;t be needing it anymore.

    1. Good point, Mark. Makes you seriously wonder if those that really believe this have made any arrangements regarding their personal assets.
      Although the total destruction ( “the world will end” ) this man is prophesying would not leave anyone to benefit from their assets.

    I the bible didn’t God say we wouldn’t know the date and time of when judgement day and the end of the world will be? So how can people predict judgement day and the end of the world? I need answers!

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Yes, Matthew 24:36 declares that no one knows the hour of His coming, which is the end of the world, not even the angels in heaven, only the Father knows. That is why it is so ridiculous that these bozos claim to know when the hour and day is. Their dispute is with Christ, so if they feel confident about telling Him He is wrong…

      Well, you see I have no respect for those who do claim to know. Their pride is truly ugly and profane. This man doesn’t know about Saturday being the day, so much so, that if you have more questions, please come ask me on Sunday. 🙂

      But seriously, there have always been those who claim to know when Jesus Second Coming would be, and Jesus said as such in Matthew 24. We are not to listen to them. We are to remain faithful to our callings as Christians in order to be prepared for His coming, which could happen at any time. But given that, the issue is being faithful. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions. The one question I have for you, are you ready IF Jesus were to return right now?

      Think about it.
      Blessings

    If you truly believe the world will end and you have the money please give me a $100,000 or more sometime today, so if I die saturday I could die spending that money in a way I always wish I could have.

  7. Hi John,
    I wish I did have $100,000 just laying around… I might send it to you. 🙂

    But alas, on a good day I have a dollar laying around. That is the life of a pastor.
    Blessings
