Has the rapture hit Switzerland yet?

A Californian preacher had prophesied that the Rapture would begin today at 6pm in each of the world's time zones, with those "saved" by Jesus ascending to heaven and the non-believers being wiped out by an earthquake rolling from city to city across the planet.

I'm in NYC, so I still have a few hours to wait. However, it's after 6pm in Switzerland. Is the Rapture must in full swing? Are the 'saved' ascending to heaven?

If you aren't getting a response, it's because we normal people are all dead and the chosen ones have other things to do, like praising the Lord.

if it's coming, it's late. Unheard of in Switzerland. So I guess that would be no.

Isn't that a song by Blondie?

(Just joking, of COURSE it's a song by Blondie, it hit here 30 years ago!)

Re: Has the rapture hit Switzerland yet?

The website keeps timing out!

Oh, it's ok - it still pings. Anyway, Matthew 24:36 ""No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father". So the Reverend Camping is an unbiblical heretic.

Re: Has the rapture hit Switzerland yet?

Wow! It is happening in Iceland!



Iceland is geologically going to break into two separate parts.
http://www.platetectonics.com/book/page_5.asp

"Iceland will inevitably break apart into two separate land masses at some point in the future, as the Atlantic waters eventually rush in to fill the widening and deepening space between".

Iceland's most active volcano, Grimsvotn, has started erupting ejecting plume 18000 feet into air.

Re: Has the rapture hit Switzerland yet?

And now for a coincidence, the "rapture" (earthquakes and volcano eruptions) began at 1800 hours in Iceland.
