The Macho Man, Randy Savage, Stops The Rapture

Everyone knew that the rapture prediction for yesterday was wrong - at least they should have all known.  If you want to know what Jesus said about the end of of this age, I suggest reading Matthew 24.  The entire chapter is devoted to signs of the end of the age.  In verse 36 Jesus says, "No one knows about that day or hour, no even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."  So if some guy named Harold Camping comes along claiming it's the end - it's not going to happen.

Harold had some sort of formula he claims he got from Scripture to get the May 21st date.  What he didn't count on was the Macho Man, Randy Savage, dying the day before.  I'm a firm believer that a lot of the stuff we do for fun in this life, will also be done for fun in heaven, as long as its not a sin, of course.  Maybe wrestling is a sin, but I don't think so.  Randy was so excited to be heaven (I'm not sure his religious beliefs, but let's just say he was so excited to be heaven), that the first thing he wanted to do with Jesus was have a wrestling match.  "Oh, yea!"  And incidentally, the Macho Man stopped the Rapture.  No one knows the time of Christ's return and no one can predict it. 

"Oh, Yea!  Slam into a Slim Jim!"

  1. Hi,

    I want to add - you cannot predict the rapture is NOT going to happen on the May 21st date. You still have to be faithful and ready for Jesus to come ALL of time. Harold Camping is an example of false prophet as stated in the Bible. Many people are turning away from the Christ because of this.
    If you you go through Matthew 24:9-14: "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appears and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."

  2. Kyle thanks for the comment. You are right. Christ could return at anytime. However, Camping gave an exact time on May 21st, we can safely say that it wouldn't be the exact time prophesied, because it's written elsewhere in Scripture that the time will be unexpected. If 6 PM is an expected time, then it would have to be at a different time on the predicted day.

    I like the last verse you quoted. It does tell us when the end will come, when the Gospel has been preached into all the world. When that will occur, we're not exactly sure, but because the completion of our mission as the church is when Christ will return, we can speed the return of Christ as Peter says in 2 Peter 3.

  4. Dr. Preta, I am afraid that's going a little too far for my taste. And of course, I'm sure what I posted went a little too far for others.

    I seriously don't picture it as Macho Man taking Jesus out, just sort of like, happy to see Jesus and to get a chance to wrestle with the Big Man, just like all little kids love to wrestle with their dad or older brother or cousin. Jesus had a lot of fun wrestling with him and lost track of time and messed up Harold Camping for the remainder of his earthly life.

    But, it's all a joke. I wonder who came up with the Macho Man stopping the rapture joke first.

  5. This is blasphemy on the Macho Man and Jesus. You should be ashamed. Macho Man may of made it to the gates, but the picture of him coming at Jesus. BLASPHEMY.
