Remember the year 2012? Do you remember how all the ten years before this year the world almost every month appointed the "end of the world" for 2012? But the chimes were struck, several catastrophes were published and … nothing happened. The world did not end. Do you think the failed astrologers have reached conclusions? As if not so.
Yet the knowledge of how much is left for mankind is important for the planning of social life. Therefore, here are ten dates that will prompt you when the Earth will end. Or not.
The Great Tribulation
According to the Bible, the Great Tribulation will be the worst period in human history, followed by the end of the world. The theorists of the Christian apocalypse believe that the fall of 2017 will be the beginning of this seven-year period of painful suffering.
To get this date, it took a lot of people, complex biblical verses and calculations, but mostly the theory revolves around important dates relating to Jerusalem. In 1217, a rabbi named Judah Ben Samuel made a series of predictions about Jerusalem and the end of the world. First, he said that the Turks will control this area eight jubilees. (Jubilee is a 50-year period that ends with forgiveness of people, forgiveness of debts and God's mercy). According to the rabbi, 1217 was the beginning of the jubilee cycle, as well as 1517, when the Turks invaded Jerusalem, 300 years after his prediction. In 1917, after eight anniversaries, the Turks were expelled from Jerusalem to Hanukkah.
Then Ben Samuel predicted that this city would become a titular land for the ninth anniversary, that is, just under British rule, when he was considered a corpus separatum (separate body) and an international territory. Then the city was divided between Israel and Jordan in 1948, and in 1967, at the end of the ninth jubilee, he returned under the control of Israel.
The year 2017 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Israel's return to full control of Jerusalem. This is the last year of the tenth anniversary. According to the rabbi, at that time the Jews will rule Israel and the end of the world will come.
The Ninth Prediction
Hopi is a Native American tribe living in Arizona. For 2010, the reservation for 6.6 million square kilometers was inhabited by 19 327 people – the Hopi tribe is one of the largest in the United States. And this culture has a long history.
Like many Indian tribes, the Hopi encountered the brutality of the Spanish conquistadors, although they saw glorious victories in 1542 and 1680. Finally, in 1882, President Arthur presented them with a reservation, but already years before they had communicated with the American government. One of the most important meetings took place in 1958 between the Minister David Young and the Hopi Elder White Pen. During this meeting, White Pen gave Yang a few ancient predictions of Hopi.
The first two predictions were about white people and spinning wheels filled with voices, which, the Hopi said, were embodied in the arrival of Europeans and the conquest of Americans. Next was "a strange monster, like a buffalo," crossing the ground, which denoted the warning of the scale of modern agriculture. The next three predictions were about iron snakes, giant cobwebs and stone rivers: railroads, telecommunications wires and roads.
These six predictions were fulfilled before they were told by Yang. And the last three are not.
The first prediction of the future, made by White Pen, was dedicated to the sea, which will turn black, granting death to everything in it. Many attributed this forecast to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. The following prediction spoke of long-haired youth, who wanted to learn Indian customs, which could well be attributed to the hippy movement. And this is the ninth prediction:
"You will hear of a dwelling in heaven, above the Earth, which will fall with great destruction. It will appear as a blue star. Soon after this ceremony my people will stop. "
The simplest way would be to assume that a comet will collapse to Earth, and although many believe that it is about this prophecy, others believe that the "blue star" may be something else. The Chinese space laboratory TianGong-1 lost its connection with the Earth in 2016. Now it revolves around the planet and will do this until it falls to Earth. Will she become a blue star from the prophecy of the White Feather? Or is it an experiment that will put an end to humanity? Let's wait until October 2018, when the laboratory will re-enter the atmosphere. If we survive, we will wait for a comet.
The Second Coming
Jean Dixon is considered one of the most important figures among the predictors of the 20th century. In addition to working closely with US presidents Nixon and Reagan, Dixon wrote in a column in the newspaper and wrote several books, including a horoscope for dogs.
In 1973, Dixon published her most famous book, The Call of Fame, which her followers consider prophetic. In it, the Catholic clairvoyant argued that the beginning of the end will come in 2020, beginning with a voice that will be heard around the world and who will say: "It's over." This will be a signal for the Second Coming of Christ, who will fight with Satan until the end of the world in 2037.
Fortunately, like most other psychics, Dixon was wrong. But unlike most other psychics, the phenomenon of ignoring the wrong facts was named in her honor and is now known as the Gene Dixon effect. Dixon also claimed that the information she had received was always good, she simply misinterpreted it.
The Second Coming (again)
If you do not trust psychics and prefer to receive information about the apocalypse directly from the Bible itself, then you should go to Kenton Beshor. The president of the World Bible Society, Beshor, is convinced that Armageddon will happen "no later than" in 2021. One of the main reasons for his prediction is the interpretation of the parable of the fig tree.
The parable sounded like this: the owner of the vineyard was angry that his fig tree had not given figs for three years. Then he came to the gardener and said: cut it down, since it does not bear fruit. The gardener begged: Lord, give me a year, and a year later we'll see. Most interpret it as if God is preparing to strike the infidels, but Jesus gives them a second chance.
However, since the fig tree is often perceived as a metaphor for Israel, Beshor and others believe that the parable means something completely different. In his book When When, Beshor argues that the parable means that Jesus will return in one generation from the foundation of Israel, and this will happen in 2028. Because Jesus will fight Satan to earn the respect of good children, this means real chaos and anarchy that will begin in 2021.
Asteroid carrying death to the world
The International Fund of the Messiah was founded in 2002 and acts as a kind of spiritual meat grinder. The Fund seems to believe in all theistic religions, but mostly it's Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism.
The Messiah Foundation believes that scientists are well aware of the giant asteroid rushing to our planet, which it will face in 2026. But although these unnamed scientists believe that by that time we will have the technology to destroy it, the fund does not agree. The asteroid will put humanity to an end.
The foundation claims that when this happens, the messiahs will come and save everyone who is worth saving. Needless to say, among the expected Jesus. For those who are not waiting for Jesus, Mahdi, Avatar Kalki, His Sublime Eminence Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, who founded the Messiah Foundation, will arrive. What is noteworthy, the latter is also waiting, despite the fact that he has not yet died.
When you remember Newton, his name is inevitably associated with science and reflections, but as it turned out, the person who fell on the apple's head would not hurt himself and go down to Earth at least a little bit. It's no secret that Newton firmly believed in God, but few will remember that his faith in the Bible was as solid as his belief in science. He believed that the Bible contains hints of the end of the world, you just need to read it carefully.
Newton's calculations were long and complex, but in essence he believed that the end of the world would come after a long period of turmoil in the Catholic Church. Newton believed that the year 800 marked the beginning of this period of decay and superiority of the pope. The book of Revelations mentions "time, times and time separation" that Newton interpreted as a year, two years and six months, or 3.5 years in total. Also 42 months are mentioned. 3.5 years and 42 months represent 1,260 days in the old Jewish calendar, and since days often represent years in the Bible, Newton came to the conclusion that the end of the world would come in 2060.
However, Newton noted that he sees no reason for the end of the world to come before 2060. Ironically, he hoped that his prediction would help "put an end to the reckless assumptions of eccentrics who often predict the end of the world." Nothing came of it.
The Islamic Second Coming
Before the advent of comics and movies, parallel universes existed only in a religious sense. Technically, Jews, Christians and Muslims worshiped only God. These religions, along with a few smaller ones, are known as Abrahamic religions and comfort half the faithful around the world. Therefore, if Christianity has become a sequel to Judaism, Islam will be a branch, spin-off, in which Jesus appears as a revered prophet, not a messiah. As if Iron Man appeared in the new film about Spider-Man.
According to a number of Islamic hadith, the apocalypse will not happen overnight, but gradually. It will begin with the fact that the world will plunge into a war against Muslims, which, in principle, is partly already happening. In response, Madhi, who is waiting, will unite all Muslims and prepare them for the return of the prophet, who, according to many, may be Jesus. Because the hadeeth says that the son of Mary will break the cross and kill the pig. It will break the cross – this, of course, means the rupture of Christianity, which went along a path that was not close to Jesus. Killing a pig means restoring the rules of Judaism that were abandoned in Christianity, such as the ban on eating pork meat.
Said Nursi studied these hadiths and decided that he had determined the schedule of these events. According to his interpretations, the world will end in earthquakes, fire and the battle of a one-eyed monster, who will fight the Messiah when Gog and Magog descend to Earth. Gog and Magog appear in the Torah, the Koran and the Bible, sometimes as humanoid beings, sometimes representing hostile peoples. Whoever they were, Nursi believed that all this would happen in 2129, so most of us are likely to be able to observe all this from the infernal cauldron, of course.
The Messiah's Hours
It is known that the Jews are waiting for the Messiah – this is one of the central beliefs of Judaism. Therefore it is not surprising that many tried to calculate the exact time of his arrival. Rabbi Eliyahu from Vilna was a scientist of the 18th century who designed the clock (not physical, but as a timekeeping method) to count down the time before the arrival of the Messiah. Psalm 90: 4 says that every 1000 years for us is only a day in the sight of God, so Eliyahu applied it to the six days of creation. It turns out, on the seventh day, on Saturday, God will begin to rule us forever. This time is also known as the Messianic age.
The Jewish days are arranged a little differently than the Gregorian days, new days begin at sunset, and not from sunrise. Therefore, the Messianic age will begin in 6000, not in 7000. The year 6000 will see the sunset on September 30, 2239. Thus, this is the last possible date of the Messiah's coming before the Sabbath, although he may appear earlier to help us prepare for the new Kingdom of Heaven.
Unfortunately, although the eternal Sabbath brings harmony and tranquility to the world, it will come only for those who are actively preparing for the coming of the Messiah. Even if you are a Jew, you will not see the Messiah, if you do not facilitate his arrival.
The Koranic Code
Rashad Khalifa was an Egyptian biochemist and divine messenger of God, as he himself proclaimed. In the late 1960s, Khalifa began using computers to search for mathematical codes hidden in the Qur'an. By the mid-1970s, he had found them. His study was devoted to the frequency of words, letters, poems, numbers, etc. It turned out that the number 19 reveals the secrets of the ancient text.
Some evidence of this is that the first verse of the Quran has 19 letters, like the first verse of the last revelation. The number of chapters between the famous "absent message" and the additional message is 19, and these corrections were made by scientists 19 years after the death of the prophet. If we expand the name of Rashad Khalifa (for example, A = 1, B = 2), the numbers somehow sum up in 19, revealing a messenger of the apocalypse. There are many other proofs, but enough for you.
The Koran, like most sacred books, invites us to look for a few things that will inform us about the end of the world. Among them, the separation of the moon (believers believe that when people brought lunar rocks to Earth, it happened); the opening of a secret code (the above code 19); creation of "earthly creations" that will reveal the existence of our creator, that is, computers.
Using these codes and clues, Khalifa deduced that the world would end in 2280, so we still have some time on Earth. When the end comes, there will be a sound signal and the Earth will be crushed, "truly crushed", like the heavens. Fortunately, the second Earth and Heaven will be created for believers.
The problem of mathematical codes is that they are quite easy to make suitable for your forecast. Most of the evidence includes an indication of such things as the total number of verses in the Quran – 6346 (334 times 19). Thus, the most convincing argument in favor of this prediction is a criminal offense: the assassination of Khalifa. Khalifa was killed by his former student in January 1990. Nineteen years later, the killer was extradited from Canada for trial and, ultimately, convicted. December 19, 2012.
The Sermon of the Seven Suns
Of the order of 4,200 known religions that existed throughout the history of mankind, among the unbelievers the most widespread and respected doctrine is considered Buddhism. But apart from the policy of peace and self-reflection, most people do not know anything about Buddhism. It's just a belief in reincarnation and jokes about the Dalai Lama, who asks to make him a pizza "with everything." How does the religion of serenity and rebirth see the end of the world?
To understand Buddha's claims about the end of the world, one must first find out that Buddha, who founded Buddhism on Earth, was Siddhartha Gautama. Gautam Buddha lived from 563 to 483 BC. e. and claimed that his teachings would be forgotten five thousand years after his death, or about 4517 AD. e. By this moment, we will all live in a selfish and sinful way. Another Buddha – Maitreya – descends and revives religion in the next 80,000 years. That's how much people will live by that time.
After this, the Seven Suns will preach forward. The first is about our Sun, which will see how the whole plant life "will dry up, fade and cease to exist." When the second sun rises, all animal life dies. The third, fourth, fifth of the sun will drain rivers, lakes and oceans, in order, and the sixth will proclaim an era of violent volcanic destruction.
Finally, the seventh sun will appear and blow up the Earth, it will burn it to the ground and to complete non-existence. You can easily say that the sun is used to measure time, but supporters of this religion literally perceive prophecy as the emergence of new suns in our solar system or a supernova explosion. Fortunately, by the time this happens, we will have time to gain nirvana by simply attaining enlightenment. Obviously, if you have a Buddha and 80,000 years, it will not be difficult.
