    I had been occasionally watching Jim Bakker's show on television. He and a guy by the name of John Shorey have been talking about end times. Shorey believes that God's judgment of the nations will begin this March, that the tribulation will begin one year from this March, and that 3 1/2 years from March of 2016, or in September of 2019, the rapture will occur.

    Any comments? Anyone been looking at these shows?

    I have better things to do than to watch those shows. Such predictions are nonsense.

    Yeah. They're money-grubbing frauds.

    Any time someone comes out with a prediction about the exact timing of end times events, I cringe. The Bible clearly states that none of us know, and it is not given us to know, so we must be ever watchful and vigilant.
    If John Shorey is claiming he knows when these things will happen, then John Shorey must also claim himself to be God the Father, as Jesus (the most infallible source we've ever had access to) said that only the Father knows the day and the hour in which these things will come to pass.

    Also, you're talking about mid-trib rapture vs pre-trib rapture vs general resurrectionist amils...it can get ugly... :laugh:

    Reminds me of Harold Camping and Family Radio.

    All you had to see is "Jim Bakker" and you would know it's nonsense.

    Yeah, I've been listening to some of John Shorey's stuff while working, and he's out there... He's just grabbing scripture and twisting it however he feels to make it fit his mid-trip rapture point of view. Apparently within the next three years or so the Muslims are going to somehow give the Temple Mount back to the Jews, tear down the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Jews will rebuild the Temple, and they will re-institute animal sacrifice. That's just the tip of the iceberg with this guy.

    One would think that Jim Bakkkker had learned something given his past failures. I am glad he has more than one "k" in his name!

    I appreciate your detailed answer instead of just a drive-by. :) That's not to criticize others, but I always enjoy reading answers with details.

    I heard him speak at a church in Charlotte NC on New Years Eve 1999. He went on for almost 2 hours on how the tribulation was going to start when the year 2000 dawned. Never read from the Good Book. He had a copy of The Bible Code by Michael Drosin and kept babbling about the coming horror.

    The only horror was being stuck in a church with Jim Bakker yapping and not having a car of my own to leave.

    I've always wondered about these people who try to set dates, even very general ones. With all their scripture quoting, there is one significant scripture they seem to forget.

    I wonder what will happen to Bakker's and Shorey's ministries if the prediction doesn't come true. I wonder if they ever think about that.

    I've seen bits and pieces of it when I visit my mother. She's got DirectTV and flips among the "church" channels when I'm over there. His most recent wife also wears too much makeup. He hawks survival gear and food. Has a prophecy segment. It's a very strange mix of content. We watch it and groan.
