In 1999, I predicted a Rapture for Sept. 10-11th, the Feast of Trumpets. Below is a cut and paste from my index page on Sept. 13, 1999 left in full, with nothing altered. All the links are also working. Here is my formal apology:

For all those who are reading this for the first time, I was one of the loudest voices on the newsgroups speaking about a "Rapture on Feast of Trumpets" this for Sept. 1999.

I'm sorry. I was wrong. I was a prideful idiot. I deceived myself. I have spoken presumptuously and deserve death under the Law according to Deuteronomy... And I deceived others who believed me. I lusted after the promise of the Kingdom, and through my pride and arrogance, I thought I could divine the time, and/or that I was worthy enough to be given divine revelation. Obviously, I was preaching out of my vain imagination, because I came to the wrong conclusions. Nothing happened! I was wrong! I'm sorry!

Do you want to know what happened? My thoughts on how I went so wrong?

"The rapture is for the most part a SPIRITUAL concept.  I have discovered that virtually every single passage to do with being caught up, going up, etc., is saturated with the prime number 107."

He disagrees with the concept of pre-trib, but I challenged him and said... "Isn't 107 another way to say that the rapture will happen at the START of the SEVENTH day?"... (Which 1-1-5760 is supposed to be...)

His response:

Thanks for the thoughts.  I appreciated the things you shared.

Only God knows for sure how, or when, or even if a visible rapture will take place. All I can tell you for sure is that the rapture is being caught up and forever being with the Lord.

God Bless,
