Family Radio Spokesman: May 21 Rapture Is Guaranteed

A Family Radio spokesman affirmed with The Christian Post that the May 21 rapture is “guaranteed” and said the date of end of the world was revealed through Bible study and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Anthony Hernandez, a frequent speaker on Family Radio’s Echoes program, teaches on subjects such as “Being Warned of Things Not Yet Seen” and “The Time is at Hand.” Like many of Harold Camping’s followers, he is preparing himself and others for May 21, the day Camping says will mark the second coming of Christ.

Despite scriptures such as those in Matthew 24:36, which says, “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only,” Hernandez insisted that Christians can know date of judgment day though Bible study and the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

“It’s a convenient excuse if you just read ‘No one knows the day or the hour’ and in other places where it says ‘He is coming like a thief in the night,’ [and then say] ‘OK, alright, I don’t have to look at this,'” said Hernandez.

Instead, he said what those scriptures are really saying is that no man knows the hour unless the Holy Spirit reveals it to him or her.


Only Father knows the day or hour.

Matthew 23:46 [ No One Knows the Day or Hour ] “Now concerning that day and hour no one knows—neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son —except the Father only.
