In 2009 Rev. Josmar Flores desperately wanted to speak directly with Mexican President Felipe Calderon to warn him and the people of Mexico that a catastrophic earthquake would occur in 2012.

The only problem was that he hijacked an Aeromexico plane from Cancun enroute to Mexico City to get the Presidents attention.  Today he was sentenced to 7 years for ‘illegally retaining people’ the 103 passengers who were unharmed and for the hijacking.

After an hour standoff and after yelling claims of a bomb on board he surrendered without incident.  The self-proclaimed pastor has claimed he was acting on a divine revelation.  Which of course is timely especially this week.

The Christian network Family Radio and others have been proclaiming that on May 21st, 2011 the end of the world will occur, also known as the day of Rapture. 

Rapture refers to the Thessalonian passage in the New Testament when God calls ‘good Christians’ back home.  Some people believe, as did Rev. Josmar Flores, that the Rapture will come in the form of an earthquake.
