does the church officially consider this authentic???[/quote:1jmnk1fy]
No, because Jesus says in Scripture that we know not the hour when he will return. We hold the word of God higher than casual speculation.

“But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come. It is like a man traveling abroad. He leaves home and places his servants in charge, each with his work, and orders the gatekeeper to be on the watch. Watch, therefore; you do not know when the lord of the house is coming, whether in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning. May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to all: ‘Watch!'”[/quote:1jmnk1fy]
Don’t spend your time getting caught up in these end-of-times/doomsday predictions. They are anti-biblical and are useful only for fear mongering. It’s best to ignore it and live each day as the Lord wants – by loving God and loving your neighbor as yourself.
