End of The World. Now due on 23rd April.

End of The World on 23rd April - Jesus Meme

The latest Apocalypse news is out, and it seems that the world is going to end on  23rd April. According to David Meade, the world was going to end on 23rd September last, after that didn’t happen, it looks like he’s changed his sums.

According to The Express website (yes, this is in the tabloids):

Believers say a biblical prophecy is about to come true because of a planetary alignment taking place on Monday, April 23.

The passage from the book of Revelation 12:1-2 reads: “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.”

Mr Meade, who has been most vocal about the coming apocalypse, says Virgo represents the woman while Jupiter is Messiah.

And on April 23, the sun and moon will be in Virgo along with Jupiter.

The Sun, and The Mail have also covered this… story.

Personally I like the response from The Washington post on how the British press have covered this…

The tabloids ran virtually identical articles last year, speculating that the same Bible verse predicted Planet X would appear on Sept 23, and then multiple dates after that.

Didn’t happen, of course, but maybe the sixth time’s the charm…

But of course, we could also check what the Bible says about the subject..

“But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven’s angels, not even the Son. Only the Father knows.

Matthew 24

So. How long do you reckon it will be until the next Apocalypse prophecy will come along?

Apocalypse Nowish?

Its seems there was a blue moon last night. This means that the world will end in September.

According to this article by The Express anyway… :

“Prophecisor” Pastor Paul Begley has taken to YouTube to warn of the significance of the rare Blue Moon happening in the run up to the even rarer “tetrad” of four Blood Moons.

Fellow preachers have been warning for months that the date of the last of four ‘blood moons‘ over the past 18 months, due to occur on September 28, and following a papal visit to the US, will signal the second coming of Jesus Christ, before Armageddon.

Two evangelists with huge followings in the states – Mark Blitz and John Hagee – claim after that date the world as we know it will be destroyed by major earthquakes amid heightened tensions in the Middle East and the possibility of a Third World War.

Pastor Begley said he was concerned that tonight’s Blue Moon could spell disasters in the run up to the prophesied apocalypse in September.

A Blue Moon only happens when there is a second full moon in one calendar month – and so is unusual as the full moon cycle is normally 29.5 days.

He said in his video, on the channel he calls The Coming Apocalypse, which is also aired on some US TV channels, that after the first full moon this month on July 1, there were great fires in Canada, which sent so much ash into the air they made the moon “appear red.”

Having another “red moon” in the run up to the “blood moons” is a warning we cannot ignore, he suggested.

He said: “The thing I find very strange about this is it happens to be happening in this four Blood Moon tetrad, and in such a prophetic time.

“As we come towards the fourth and final Blood Moon – a super Blood Moon, we’ve got a Blue Moon.”

The pastor said the full moon in early July was the night of his first broadcast.

He added: “There were forest fires burning in Canada that sent so much ash, but the jet streams did not blow them away like normal, but instead, God just let the smoke hang there, so when the moon came up it was blood red.

To the guys credit, in the video that The Express include, he doesn’t mention September…

 

But theres a lot of talk about moons.

I guess we’ll see what happens in September, but I’d like to leave you with the follow links.
