Okay, there's a lot of off-topic threads that formed on this original post.
Considering that the guy who is making this prediction has been wrong in the past when he said that Jesus would return in 1994 and said that it would be impossible for Jesus to return in 2011, we can safely assume that this current prediction is at best merely another guess.
Biblically speaking, a prophet must be 100% accurate all the time. Otherwise, we are told that the prophet can safely be ignored.
Now, the part about Jesus coming back and gathering his followers in the clouds is biblical. The word "rapture" is never used, but that's just because it's the word that "we" use to refer to what is described in the Bible of that particular future event, so no need to get into an argument about the terminology. Just look at what the Bible actually describes.
The odd part that I see is where people who are buying into the idea that the prediction for 21 May 2011 is right, are quitting their jobs and "running for the hills". It would seem to me that the best testimony of one's belief in Jesus would be to continue working and doing what we are told to do in the Bible as for how we ought to conduct ourselves in our day-to-day lives; and to keep doing that right up until Jesus calls us up. A lot of our outreach to those who don't believe the same way should be in the relationships that we develop with those around us; demonstrating in how we live our everyday lives the benefits that we experience from living according to what we learn from our own readings from the Bible (and discussions with fellow believers) -- none of this running off to chase after wild predictions.
Of course, if you want to pull a "zombie apocolypse" or societal collapse scenario into the discussion, it would seem to be that true Christians would be the ones to encourage others to prepare as we would and to otherwise help develop mutual support groups to help each other (especially the ones we interact with regularly) through the rough times.

What does anybody think about a possible "False 2nd Comming" due to project bluebeam? Idk how many of you saw the video in africa where the virgin mary appears in the sun, but i feel like maybe the ufos sightings are part of this too. It wouldnt surprise me if theyre testing out the system for a grand picture show in the sky to get everyone riled up.

If the Gov got involved using project Bluebeam most would fall for it hook, line and sinker.
I'm with ya.

How will we know when it's really Jesus?
Seriously, could not Lucifer portray him and fool us all? The bible is such a conundrum of do's and don'ts as it even tells you to beware of false prophets. Most people can't even agree what Jesus looked like.
