With a lot of horrendous events happening today, we often ask ourselves – Is the end of the world coming? For the past few years, we have experienced a lot of terrible things like bombing, mass killing, natural disaster, and war.
These horrific events killed a lot of innocent people all over the world. People can’t help thinking that these abominable events were all pointing to one direction – the end of the world apocalypse. But when is the world going to end?
We have heard a lot of revelation prophecies before – Y2K prophecy, The Mayan Calendar Prophecy, and many more. Although none has happened yet, it’s always important to be prepared.
When is the World Going to End?
The end time prophecies started as early as 66-70 CE. According to Simon bar Giora and the Jewish Essenes, the Jewish revolt against the Romans in 66 to 70 in Judia was the final end-time battle before the Messiah arrives.
It was followed by a prophecy in 365 CE by the Hilary of Poitiers. They announced that the world would end that year. After a decade, Martin of Tours announced another end of the world prophecy as the Anti-Christs were born. Even Christopher Columbus made a prophecy that the world would end in 1658. He claimed that the world was created in 5343 BCE and would only last for 7000 years.
Year 2000 End of the World Prophecy
New prophecies were made even before we reached a new millennium. Charles Berlitz, a linguist, predicted the end would happen that year. He didn’t predict how it would occur, but he mentioned that it might involve nuclear devastation, pole shift, or other Earth changes.
Timothy Dwight IV, the President of Yale University, also predicted Christ’s millennium in Year 2000.
There were many other prophecies for that year, but the biggest prophecy for Year 2000 was the Y2K Prophecy. There were widespread predictions of a Y2K computer bug that would crash the computers on the midnight of December 31, 1999. This virus was told to cause malfunctions leading to major catastrophes all over the world.
The Mayan Calendar Prophecy
The Mayan apocalypse prophecy was also among the biggest end of the world prophecies. The prophecies started when the Mayan calendar stopped on December 21, 2012. It was also predicted that the Earth would be destroyed by an asteroid or some interplanetary object. There were also comments about alien invasion or a supernova.
However, Mayanist scholars denied that classic Mayan accounts are impending doom and that the Mayan calendar ending in 2012 misrepresented their history and culture. NASA scientists also claimed that none of those asteroids, supernova, and alien invasion prophecies were possible.
When is the real end of the world?
According to Nathan Shephard, a bible scholar who has a background in theology and archaeology, the end times in the bible are saying that the world would end before the start of January 2017.
Nathan based his Armageddon prophecy on his years of studying the bible. He noted every single sign and connected them with what’s happening in the world now. He decoded the code and learned the hidden message inside the bible.
