Comet Expected During Feast of Tabernacles, Will Harold Camping’s Followers Point to It?

Comet Lulin


A ‘Holy Day’ comet is expected during the Feast of Tabernacles this year:

Comet races toward Earth at peak of God’s holy days

Pastor asking: ‘Will there be some type of magnetic pull? Will the poles shift?’

WND – July 31, 2011 excerpts…

A newly discovered, real-life comet named Elenin is racing toward our home planet.No, it’s not an asteroid, and no, it’s not on a crash course, but it is expected to be at its closest point to us – some 21 million miles – during the annual culmination of God’s holy days mentioned in the Bible…the comet’s nearest point to Earth will take place Oct. 16, during the Feast of Tabernacles, according to today’s Jewish calendar.

“I’m here to tell you right now, we’re getting closer and closer and closer and closer to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ,” Begley said.

In the New Testament, Jesus predicted celestial signs concerning the end of this current age and His return to Earth to govern the kingdom of God.

Will Earthbound Comet Fulfill 2012 Prophecy?
Discovery News – March 22, 2011

It’s nearly 300 million miles away and barreling toward us. The intruder from deep space, called called comet Elenin, crosses Earth’s orbit on its inbound leg and again on its outbound swing around the sun later this year…

If you believe the gobbledygook on numerous websites and YouTube videos, this is a “renegade comet” that just couldn’t wait for 2012 to mess with the Earth.

Though it’s now over twice as far away from Earth than the sun is, comet Elenin has already been blamed for triggering earthquakes and shifting Earth’s rotation axis. The comet has also been accused of melting ice on Mars and stirring up a storm on Saturn. It’s predicted to flip Earth’s magnetic field…
The effects of the comet on Earth at closest approach will be as inconsequential as that of a mosquito slamming head-on into an ocean-going supertanker.
There are several points to make related to the above.  The first is that it is interesting that the news report from WND today specified that the comet will hit during the Feast of Tabernacles, as biblical Holy Days are rarely mentioned in the news media (outside of covering certain Jewish observances).  The second, which I did not quote, was that one “pastor” claimed that the comet is coming during the Feast of Trumpets, which is an error that even Protestant ministers should not make.  Here is a link to an accurate Holy Day Calendar.
The third point is that many believe that the earth will have a pole shift in 2012, but scientists do not believe that Comet Elenin has the strength to do anything like that.  Interestingly, I got a new book on Friday, written by a Greek Orthodox scholar, and was surprised to learn that she believes that various prophecies, including (according to her interpretation) biblical ones, support the idea of a pole shift.  While I am not yet convinced, I will simply state that the Bible does not clearly teach that there cannot be a pole shift, though I am not expecting one in 2012.  And so far, I have been repeatedly shown to be correct on my understanding of prophetic events related to 2012 and the events that must take place thereafter as world events have aligned with at least 16 predictions in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.
But my fourth point is that because Comet Elenin is coming only 5 days before proven false prophet Harold Camping claims will be the end of the world, it would seem to me that his followers will point to that comet as a sign in the heavens proving that Jesus is about to return and that they are right.  They, of course, cannot be right as the world CANNOT POSSIBLY end on October 21, 2011, nor anytime prior to 2018 (and even that seems like it would be too soon at this time).

There will be signs in the heavens, but people need to take heed that they are not deceived by those who stray from biblical truth and who may misinterpret the signs (most of whom do not even observe the biblical Holy Days).

Those who are interested in the truth about Harold Camping, Ronald Weinland (who even claims to be one of the two witnesses), Mayan prophecies, 2012, biblical holy days, and when the Bible shows that Jesus can return, may wish to study the following articles:

Harold Camping’s Teachings About the End of the World Do Not Agree with the Bible Harold Camping teaches that the rapture will be on May 21, 2011 and the world will end on October 21, 2011. What does the Bible show?
What is the Appropriate Form of Biblical Interpretation? Should the Bible be literally understood? What do the writings of the Bible, Origen, Herbert W. Armstrong, and Augustine show?

Why Be Concerned About False and Heretical Leaders? There have been many false leaders–here is some of why you should be concerned about them.
There is a Place of Safety for the Philadelphians. Why it May Be Petra This article discusses a biblical ‘place of safety’ and includes quotes from the Bible and Herbert W. Armstrong on this subject–thus, there is a biblically supported alternative to the rapture theory.
Is There A Secret Rapture for the Church? When and Where is the Church Protected? What does the Bible really teach? Does the Church flee or is it taken up just prior to the great tribulation? Who really is left behind?
Concerns About Ronald Weinland’s Church of God-Preparing for the Kingdom of God Ronald Weinland falsely claims to be one of the two witnesses God is raising up and that the end will come in 2008 (first April 17th, then June 2008, now December 14, 2008). Why does the Bible show that Ron Weinland is a false prophet? He also has at least one other view that suggests that he is not part of the Church of God.
Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2011, 2012, or 2013? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before the Great Tribulation in the “beginning of sorrows”? What happens in the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord? When is the earliest that the Great Tribulation can begin? What is the Day of the Lord?
Is There “An Annual Worship Calendar” In the Bible? This paper provides a biblical and historical critique of several articles, including one by the Tkach WCG which states that this should be a local decision. What do the Holy Days mean? Also you can click here for the calendar of Holy Days.

The Book of Life and the Feast of Trumpets? Are they related? Is so how? If not, where not?
The Day of Atonement–Its Christian Significance The Jews call it Yom Kippur, Christians “The Day of Atonement”. Does it have any relevance for Christians today?

End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? Are there Mayan calendar predictions for change in 2012? Changes were centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans. Do Mayan/Hindu/Hopi/Buddhist/New Age/Nostradamus prophecies have any value here? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012? How might the next pope be involved in 2012?
Who Are The Two Witnesses? What is their job? What does the Bible reveal? What has the Church of God taught on this subject? Might even Roman Catholic prophecies give some clues here?
