Preacher Who Predicted May 21st Doomsday Gives NEW Date

A California preacher is back to - once again - insist that the Rapture is coming.

Harold Camping wasted little time in telling his followers Monday that while he’s falsely claimed the world will end twice, this time it will really happen.

The 89-year-old now says the real Day of Judgment will occur on Oct. 21 and that his claims that the Apocalypse was last Saturday were a misunderstanding.

"We’ve always said May 21 was the day, but we didn’t understand altogether the spiritual meaning," the one-time civil engineer said at the Oakland headquarters of his Family Radio network.


"I don’t have spiritual rule over anybody.... except my wife"

Camping, who stated unequivocally for months that May 21 would be the end of the world, now claims it was just the day when God decided humanity’s fate. But it won’t be until Oct. 21 that we are sentenced.

"God again brought Judgment on the world," the prognosticating pulpiter said during a 90-minute speech aired on his radio stations and online.

As a result, humanity now has five months before "the whole world will be destroyed."

Camping added that his network will no longer post billboards about Judgment Day, and his radio network will only play Christian music and programs.

"The world has been warned," he said. "We don’t have to talk about this anymore."

The preacher also added that while so many of his followers donated money - in some cases everything they owned - to his ministry in belief that the world would end last Saturday, they won’t get it back.

"Why would we return it?" Camping said, arguing that the world is still going to end in October.
