Back in 1988 while I was still in between wives, I was in a large Charismatic church in San Jose that was mostly singles.  During that year there was a book out titled, "88 Reasons why the Rapture will be in 1988".  Well, that little book took off like a wildfire in Northern California.  The media kept talking about the upcoming Rapture. It went on and on, and everyone around here was caught up in it.  The little white book said that the Rapture would take place after sunset on the eve of the day before Rosh Hashana, and the little book had about a hundred pages of biblical mathematics to back it up.

To make a long story short, the single gals at that church decided to be up on the top of the mountains surrounding San Jose well ahead of sunset and wait to be Raptured.  Naturally, all the single guys (many were fakes) followed the gal up to the hills. It was a beautiful sunset, but there was no Rapture that we knew of.  We spent the rest of the night praying in the Spirit and Binding Satan.

Anyway, that little book is still alive and doing well today, because Harold Camping of Family Radio that is based here in the San Francisco area in Oakland.  Harold Camping teaches that on that very Rosh Hashana in 1988 the Church Age ended, so I must assume that the Rapture took place then also?  Camping now uses the "rains"in the Bible more than the author of 88 Reasons.  What made 88 Reasons go over so well in this area was the mathematics of it. This is a high tech area.

Just wondering?  Does anyone here remember that little 88 Reasons Book, or listen to Harold Camping on the car radio?  There is a lot of good math in this stuff.

 Actually my in laws in NC, talk about that, and one man they knew had a nervous breakdown, a religious one, and people were putting their pets to sleep, and such. My husbands aunt went to a Charismatic church, where the movement was really big. Harold Camping is a nut, and he does not like my style of music, so no, just heard of him, and would never read his books.

lightshineon,

Thanks for the information about what happened in North Carolina.  I will add that to my memories of the Rapture in 1988.

Okay, I did an Internet search and found out that the author of 88 Reasons was a former NASA engineer. It just so happens that I'm a retired Aerospace Engineer and my boy is an Aerospace Engineering student. That is the math connection. You already know about my love for Trinity Broadcast Network. It was (TBN) who interrupted programming to provide special instructions for preparing for the Rapture. That added to the fire of the local media. The Disk Jockeys on radio kept talking about it all during 1988.

According to Wikipedia 4.5 million copies were sold in bookstores, and 300,000 copies were mailed free to ministers across America.  Whisenant made money. He passed away May 16, 2001.

If the math was correct then we are left behind.

Now I know why I flunked math.  The rapture is going to occur at 11:59 CST on February 29, 2010.  This information was provided to me by my Indian guide and is based on a vision had by a Cherikowa Apachie medicine man named Puma in 1852.  Puma also predicted correctly that his tribal chief Limps Badly was going to be the father of a baby and, sure enough, 3 months later his squaw, in fact, delivered a son to the chief.  Amazing, isn't it?

I do not doubt the veracity of my Indian guide because he has never failed to lead to pools filled with fish when I hire him.

Better start preparing right now.

Trying to calculate mathmatically the biblical date when people will vanish from the time-space continuum is breaking new ground for the Aerospace Engineering disipline. I assume that there would have been electromagnetic waves, or ripples in the fabric of space/time invisibility?  I don't know?  It's all too deep for me at my age.

The only thing I could say in a discussion of the Rapture by aerospace engineers is "Beam me up, Lord".

I doubt very much if a person could be "beamed up" during the Rapture?  You would have to leave the distortion of the timespace continuum usually interpreted with space being three-dimensional and time playing the roll of the fourth dimension. We are talking about supergalactic and subatomic levels. Your beam wouldn't work because the rate at which time passes depends on an object's velocity relative to the speed of light and also on the strength of intense gravitational fields, which can slow the passage of time.
