Been There; Done That

Many people have lived through many predictions of the end of the world. In 1000 AD many thought the world would end because it was the end of a millennium.

Christ was supposed to come in1806 in England.
John Wesley thought the Millennium would begin in 1836.
Millerites predicted the coming of Christ several times in the 1800's.
Russellites thought Christ would come in 1874.
Herbert Armstrong predicted Christ's return to be in 1936 and after that
changed his prediction.
Jim Jones predicted the end of all things to be 1967.
Hal Lindsey said the 1980's would be the last decade.
Pat Robertson said the end would come in 1982.
Edgar Whisenant said the world would end in 1988; then the next year he said
he missed it by one year.
Many predicted the end of the world at the turn of the year 2000.

Now, since none of these has happened, we have many to look forward to in
the future.

2018 - 2028 -- F. Kenton Beshore
2020 - 2037 -- Jeane Jeane Dixon

2240 -- Jewish Talmud
2280 -- Rashad Kahlifa "Quran Code"
22,000,000,000 -- Scientists say the world will be torn apart.

We've been here before, and we will experience these predictions again many times until the Lord actually comes again.
