Megachurch Pastor Bruxy Cavey: Why It's Foolish to Try to Predict the Rapture
Pastor Bruxy Cavey—teaching pastor of The Meeting House in Oakville, Ontario—explains in this classic video why it's ultimately foolish to try and predict exact dates for the rapture. Using the example of Edgar C. Whisenant's 88 Reasons Why the Rapture Will Be in 1988, Cavey demonstrates that no human guess can be accurate because of Jesus' claim in Matthew 24:36 that no one—not even Jesus Himself—knows the day of His return.
"When it comes to these predictions, do you know what the success rate is?" Cavey says. "Zero."
Cavey believes that Scripture intentionally leaves the end times and the future somewhat vague in order to keep our focus on what is most important: Jesus Christ.
"The Bible gives us enough information—not that it says nothing about it—it gives us enough information about the future to encourage us and keep us Christ-centered," Cavey says. "When we move past that, we begin to abuse, I think, the revelation of Scripture and use it for sensationalism in ways it wasn't intended."
