The reverent had previously predicted the end of the world years ago. But according to Camping after in depth study of the Bible, he has corrected the date to come up with the current prediction of devastation.
According to Camping, the end will come on the 21st at 6 PM local time, beginning in the South Pacific and spreading around the world in the form of an earthquake. Camping says that people will be able to watch the devastation as the quake works its way around the world to reach them all at 6 PM local time at their location.
The Earthquake signals the start of the Rapture, according to Camping. The earthquake will allegedly be so powerful that “it will open the graves and the dead will rise up, and the saved dead will ascend up into heaven with the living that have been saved.”
Camping says that only the “true believers” will be saved and the remaining estimated 7 billion people will be in a “tremendous, terrible situation.” Camping predicts that the suffering will continue until October 21st, and then God will completely destroy the Earth.
