A Bozeman Montana woman behind the movement to put up billboards around the world warning of the apocalypse is still holding out hope for the end at some point, while others say the rapture has already happened, it’s just not obvious.
Marie Exley, who helped put up apocalypse-themed billboards in Israel, Jordan and Lebanon, said the money allowed the nonprofit to reach as many souls as possible.
She said she and her husband, mother and brother read the Bible and stayed close to the television news on Friday night awaiting word of an earthquake in the southern hemisphere. When that did not happen, she said fellow believers began reaching out to reassure one another of their faith.
“Some people were saying it was going to be an earthquake at that specific time in New Zealand and be a rolling judgment, but God is keeping us in our place and saying you may know the day but you don’t know the hour,” she said Saturday, speaking from Bozeman, Mont. “The day is not over, it’s just the morning, and we have to endure until the end.”
Others say we are simply not paying attention to what actually got sucked up to heaven: in a few markets, Kaiser rolls have gone missing, as well as all airline ads except Delta.
