The End of the world

Christian "prophets" have been giving dates to the end of the world for over 1500 years. And every single one of them has been wrong! The latest prediction comes from the evangelical Christian publication, and says the end of the world will occur—get ready!—on Saturday.

A four-minute video explains how the world will meet its ultimate demise and  this has provoked a number of copycat apocalyptic predictions.Saturday,. September 23 marks 33 days since last month’s historic solar eclipse, a "very biblically significant, numerologically significant number," David Meade, a researcher with no credentials," said, "Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times in the Bible . . . . 

"The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending," he said. "A major part of the world will not be the same the beginning of October." This biblical apocalypse also involves Nibiru, a supposed brown dwarf that’s surrounded by other planets and set to strike Earth in just a matter of time.

The Unsealed video
They have completely mis-interpreted the 12th chapter of the Book of Revelation. It reads:

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

A "wonder" is a constellation. As described it is Virgo(which includes a minor constellation, Coma, a woman with child.)  The crown of 12 stars is the zodiac.  The second constellation is Draco, which, until recently, was portrayed as surrounding two-thirds of the zodiac. Hence "his tail draws the third part of the stars." This is clearly the story of  Jesus told in astrological symbolism.  It is a simple narration with no references to the end of the world.

There is no Biblical reason to connect the numbers he quotes.

Ed Stetzer, a professor and executive director of Wheaton College’s Billy Graham Center for Evangelism, first took issue with how Meade is described in some media articles.

“There’s no such thing as a Christian numerologist,” he told The Post. “You basically got a made-up expert in a made-up field talking about a made-up event.… It sort of justifies that there’s a special secret number codes in the Bible that nobody believes.”  Stetzer said that while numbers do have significance in the Bible, they shouldn’t be used to make sweeping predictions about planetary motions and the end of Earth.

“Whenever someone tells you they have found a secret number code in the Bible, end the conversation,” he wrote in in Christianity Today. “Everything else he or she says can be discounted.”

That is not to say that Christians don’t believe in the Bible’s prophesies, Stetzer said, but baseless theories that are repeated and trivialized embarrass people of faith.

“We do believe some of these things,” he said. “That Jesus is coming back, that he will set things right in the world, and no one knows the day or the hour."

And all the references to the mystical planet Nibiru, well . . . . . .

The very existence of Nibiru was debunked years ago by a senior space scientist for NASA.

""In the inner solar system, we see planets with stable orbits, we see the moon going around the Earth," NASA scientist David Morrison explains in a video from 2012 titled Nibiru Does Not Exist. "The very existence of this stability in the inner solar system proves that no rogue planet, no interfering object has come through the inner solar system in at least a million years.

"Please get over it," Morrison added. "We don’have to worry about this hoax."

You can be certain that after Saturday, there will soon be other huckters predicting a new date for the end of the world.!!
