Yet another doomsday prophet is claiming the Earth will be destroyed, but he backtracked recently about when it would happen.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: the Earth is facing imminent destruction in a matter of days, ushering in the Rapture and the Second Coming of Christ. Once again, a self-proclaimed prophet is claiming that the end of days is nigh, but he suddenly went back on his prediction for an immediate cataclysmic end this week.
Christian numerologist David Meade has argued that Luke 21:25-26 indicates that the recent solar eclipse and the destruction of Hurricane Harvey are indications that a Planet X will sideswipe the Earth this week and cause the apocalypse, but even before the big event he’s backtracked and is claiming that while things will change permanently in October, it won’t be the apocalypse.
The verses in question state the following “25: There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 26: Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”
His theory is based on the so-called Nibiru cataclysm, an event that involves an encounter between the Earth and a large planetary object causing mass destruction and death to mankind. Scientists say it’s a hoax and that there is no Planet X about to suddenly pass near the Earth.
“The Nibiru cataclysm is a supposed disastrous encounter between the Earth and a large planetary object (either a collision or a near-miss) which certain groups believe will take place in the early 21st century,” states an excerpt from Wikipedia. “Believers in this doomsday event usually refer to this object as Planet X or Nibiru. The idea that a planet-sized object will collide with or closely pass by Earth in the near future is not supported by any scientific evidence and has been rejected by astronomers and planetary scientists as pseudoscience and an Internet hoax.”
