88 REASONS



You might remember a man by the name of Edgar Whisenant. He was

a NASA engineer who used his mathematical skills to set a date for the return of Jesus. He wrote a book called, "88 Reasons Why the Rapture Will Take Place in 1988" The book caused a real buzz in the Christian community.

He was so certain that Jesus would return on Sept 10 that he said, "If I’m wrong then the scripture is mistaken." He knew for certain that Jesus would be here that day.

This is amazing. Jesus said in Matthew 24:36 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. The angels didn’t know, and Jesus didn’t know, but amazingly enough, Edgar did.

But the day came and passed and Edgar didn’t know half as much as he thought he did. The old saying held true, "If first you don’t succeed, fail and fail again." Edgar wrote a second book the next year claiming that he forgot that the calendar didn’t start with 1 but year 0, so he said he was a year off. Failed again.
