Because of false Christianity, (i.e, heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead or shut up).
The Name of God is blasphemed among non-believers. They have turn the way of the truth into a mockery and a laughing stock. They do what God says not to do. "You do not know the day or the hour"
"He will come as a thief in the night"

It is not like there is such a thing as right Christianity, false Christianity like "false prophet" is a pleonasm as in the qualifier "false" is already included in the meaning of the word and redundant.

Apocalypses are a fictional genre in ancient literature, they were meant to be and by the audiences also understood to be, much like disaster porn is understood to be fictional by audiences today. Well, by most anyway.

It is a feat of history that this end-time nonsense and the invented concept of "rapture" and the fictional literature that espoused is largely exclusive to the American brand of Charismatic Evangelical Christianity (the Jesus Rambo movement) and from there on exported with limited success.

Believe you me Michael, I as a non-believer don't need a Harold Camping to show me the foolishness and futility of belief in Gods.

Harold, I have a much better idea of when the "end times" will transpire for planet Earth: ~4.5 billion years from now, give or take a few 100 million. You moonbat.

"Hmm... I think most Christians wouldn't dare to sell all their possessions let alone half of them. And I highly doubt that you would either.  So while you're calling ol' Harold a "false Christian," I would recommend you take the plank out of your own eye first."

I have very little love or patience for what passes for 99.99% of Christianity, let alone the 80% you mentioned. First and forthwith, These signs will follow them that believe; they will heal the sick, cast out devils and raise the dead.  Thus, this discounts 100% of what the world defines as Christianity.

Notice how four major branches of protestantism are now ordaining gay priest. So this underscores what you have said.  Like wow, God is going to work miracles for people who don't listen to him.

It will never happen, and it's never going to happen. Harold is another vehement wayward sort, that really thinks he in tuned and on the side of right while he blatantly ignores God's prohibitions. 

This sums of 2000 years of what you define as Christianity, and what I defined as the spirit of anti-Christ causing the Name of God to be blasphemed among non-believers.

IF you want God to do something for you, first do what he says, not divorcing your spouse save for fornication not excluded. This is one of the biggest sins rampant in Anti-Christianity today.
