I'm a bit worried about reaching retirement under these circumstances. I don't suppose I'll get to retire as it is now. In fact I'm having to lay one or two people off and I'll have to increase my duties along with everyone else. I'd just got used to the pleasures of reaching the point all I did is manage.

What kind of merciful God is going to bring judgement on us now? This nation is in dire straights, if there is a God he should be helping out, not creating some calamity. There are probably millions across this nation praying, but this pastor says God is going to ignore those cries for help because us nasty sinners need a terrible calamity...
Just another prediction for the weak minds to soak up, nothing new...

There are groups of people that want the end of the world so badly they can taste it.
People are willing to believe in someone they think gets messages from God. Then they kill themselves en masse, or sell everything they own and go out to a hilltop and wait for God to rapture them. And get very tired of waiting because it doesn't happen. And then the pastor "reworks" his prophecy or math or whatever and discovers his mistake about the date and it starts over.
Yes... things in the world are bad and getting worse.
But as soon as I hear one of these predictions from a "Pastor" I just yawn.

Famed Pastor Predicts Imminent Catastrophe
(visit the link for the full news article)
A respected pastor, best-selling author and founder of a major ministry to teens predicts an imminent "an earth-shattering calamity" centered in New York City that will spread to major urban areas across the country and around the world – part of what he sees as a judgment from God.
David Wilkerson, author of "The Cross and the Switchblade," a book about his ministry to troubled New York street kids that was later made into a movie starring Pat Boone, tells readers of his blog this weekend that he is "compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message" about his prediction.
"An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen," he writes. "It is going to be so frightening, we are all going to tremble – even the godliest among us."

What I do know is that I will keep my heart and soul clean and do the best I can to live by his word. I will also do everything I can to avoid the deceptions of this world as to not get caught up into what is not of God.
