WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Downtown Wilmington was business as usual today, even though some people think that could all change Saturday.

It may be the belief of a small group of people in the US, but it’s getting big attention. Family Radio has been counting down to Judgment Day for months and warning people to change their ways so they are not left behind. The group says it has deciphered from the Bible that May 21, 2011, is the date of Judgment Day.

Pastor Daniel Cook of the Sanctuary in Wilmington says no one knows the exact time and place of Judgment Day.

“The Bible says in Mark 13 that no man knows the day or the hour, and the Bible even says that not even the angels or Jesus knows. Just God the father,” Cook said. “So for anybody to predict a time just isn’t right.”

Wilmington residents say they are not worried about their weekend, because all signs say we’ll still be here Monday.

“Haven’t they changed the date twice?” Ben Haag asked.

Kyle Morgan said, “I don’t really have a foundation to say that it’s not going to, but I haven’t gotten any divine intervention saying otherwise.”

Some say this fascination with this Judgement Day notion is like another doomsday scenario that consumed the world more than a decade ago.

“It’s like Y2K,” Wayne Jackson said. “It will pass, and then we’ll laugh at some old crazy religious dude sitting in a chair talking about the end of the world.”

Many folks say they have not changed their plans for the weekend, so we’ll wait and see.

Man, I guess maybe I shouldn’t have partied and pi$$ed all my money away after all. Since the world was ending, I didn’t think my actions would have any consequences…

What day are you referring to Rev. Blair? From my studies I see one event where Jesus comes in the air, the dead are raised and the living Christians are swept up to meet them in the air and He takes us to Heaven to be with Him. (the Rapture) The other event is where Jesus comes to Earth and sets foot on the Mount of Olives. (the Second Coming) The meanings in the Bible are revealed to us as time passes. There are things we didn’t know until the last 100 years. There will be things revealed in the future that we do not know now. The church is Jesus’ bride. Jesus will not allow His bride to live through the horrific tribulation. Rev 3:10 indicates church is kept from (ek) the hour of temptation. Ek means “out of” or “evacuation”. Would have used “dia” if the meaning is “through.” As you see in the Greek language the word “from” has two different words with totally different meanings. Same in 1 Thess 1:10 to deliver from the wrath to come. Also, 1 Thess 5:9 says we are not appointed to wrath. The rapture clearly happens before the tribulation and the second coming. I haven’t written a book, but I can clearly tell the difference when the Bible speaks of the events the Church will face and of the events the Jews will face as time progresses. I believe in dispensational interpretation, based on 2 Tim 2:15, where it says that dividing the word has to do with dividing into dispensations. The 70 weeks of Dan 9:24 is a Jewish dispensation, involving Daniel’s people and the holy city, so the church could not be involved in the 70th week, and must have been raptured prior to it. I believe it totally, but I also know the day nor the hour can not be predicted by men, only God Himself knows that information.

I am very sad for those who have been following this lie that the rapture will occur on May 21st. Even if they attempt to explain away “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father” (Mark 13:32), they cannot explain away that most every Christian, theologian, scholar, and prophet from the first Century until the Nineteenth Century all believed that the church would go through the Great Tribulation and not escape through some secret rapture that would leave the world paralyzed. I pray that they will take a moment and read my book, “Final Warning” because the hour of is His judgment has come.

I am very sad also for people in general who follow a fear based fairy tale that’s centered on a book that’s more fiction than fact. Because the bible, rev, is just like your book, written by man.

The “math is wrong” again.

will show up late for it because he stopped at a Baskin Robbins. Barfield will eat two sandwiches as he’s rising up to heaven. Catlin will vote for new developments to pave over heaven. Thompson will challenge St. Peter to a fight. Davis will shove his finger in the faces all the other zombies as they’re rising up to heaven.

2015 years 10 months ago

Maybe so, but…They will ALL be above 99% of the prior city council/mayors & staff who will be burning in hell for all the turmoil & the complete disaster they have left the current people to deal with.

This town is a complete mess thanks to the past 30+ yrs of morons & good ol boy network members.

2015 years 10 months ago

I must say that I can visualize Thompson and Michael the Arch Angel, appearing as John Travolta in a huge brawl. There is a Bull involved and someone smells like fresh baked cookies!

Nothing happens when you die.

That was about the funniest reply I’ve ever seen on this site!!

Why worry about the coming of the end?

(1)It’s been coming since I got started on this earth and man has done everything inhis power to speed it up.
(2) I can’t stop it and not so sure I would if I could.

If camping is such a great “Self Proclaimed Prophet” That he claims
to be and knows the Holy Bible Inside and Out, How can such a smart
person like himself over look 1 Big Detail in Bible


So i guess to Family Radio and this Camping Idiot Thats 89 years old
and Probaly more than likely Senile, I guess they know more than
Jesus Christ Himself.

So my Message to Family Radio and Camping Find Something else to do
with your Spare Time and Stop Trying to Get Attention Drawn to
There are many Things The Bible Talks about Leading uo to the End
That Have not Yet Occured, So I guess all in all you are also Calling
God a Liar, Why would he say these things if they were not true
Learn your Bible a Little Better before you start trying to predict and be God
You were wrong in 1994 and Guess What your Wrong in 2011
Advice: GIVE IT UP !!!!!

Why worry about when judgement day is coming? If you are a Christian, then there is nothing to fear. I am ready, because I know where I will be going

do you choose to stay if it’s so bad? I’m not saying Wilmington’s growth has been perfect but Wilmington is a cool place. You admit as much by your very presence. It has problems just as all cities do. When the current crop of problems are corrected, a whole new batch will arise. Such is life. When you find Utopia, let the rest of us know about it.

Wow Laura, ole common wasn’t able to pull the wool over your eyes.
