Rapture to occur by end of 1988

Experts in the field of eschatology agree: the long awaited second coming of Jesus Christ will occur by the end of 1988–most likely on September 11, 12, or 13. This prediction is so rock solid that Bible scholar Edgar Whisenant can offer 88 reasons for it, and Hal Lindsey predicts the same in his book The Late, Great Planet Earth which was the best-selling nonfiction book of the 1970s, and sold over 28 million copies by 1990. Whisenant is also the author of The final shout: Rapture report 1989, 23 reasons why a pre-tribulation rapture looks like it will occur on Rosh-Hashanah 1993, and his most recent work 1997.
