Their website says:

“Years ago, God’s people blew the trumpet and warned the world that JUDGMENT DAY would begin on May 21, 2011. That date was the most publicized date for the Day of Judgment that the world has ever seen. It was unprecedented and many were paying attention. The message was broadcasted on billboards and advertised on buses. It was also seen on cars, bumper stickers, t-shirts and even in subways. People read about this approaching day in magazines and newspapers. Major electronic media across the globe also trumpeted the warning message of the gospel, that indeed May 21st, 2011, would be JUDGMENT DAY!

Much of the world was, in a sense, holding its collective breath in anticipation of this final judgment of God.

Although many expected a physical manifestation of God’s wrath, God in fact, brought to pass a devastating spiritual judgment beginning on May 21, 2011. We have now entered into the darkest time in Earths’ history, as we are living in the day of judgment, and heading for the final end of all things, the destruction of the universe, and the beginning of the new heavens and new earth, very likely to be on October 7th 2015.”
