Some followers of the Bible have been keeping track of world events and believe a lot is occurring now which would suggest that the end of the world is near.
The most obvious sign for Christian conspiracy theorists is the seemingly imminent war between Iran and Israel.
Christians tout Israel as the Holy Land and an attack on that is an attack on God, they believe.
Website Signposts of the Times points to Ezekiel 38/39 which reads: “After many days you will be called to arms.
“In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate.
“When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord.”
Another sign according to the website is the news that French President Emmanuel Macron has called on countries, including Britain, to sign up for his 10-nation defence coalition with EU member states.
Signposts of the Times says: “We are told specifically in Revelation 17 of a group of 10 Kings/Kingdoms that will rise during the time of the Antichrist and in Daniel 12 we are told that these armies will ultimately march into the Middle-East and specifically, into Israel.
“And what to make of the next news story which reports on the Pope and his work to bring groups together from the Middle-East to ‘help bring peace to the region’?
“Of course the bible tells us ‘blessed are the peace-makers’, (Matthew 5:9), but it also warns that when all begin to say ‘peace and safety, there will be sudden destruction’.”
The website fails to give a date on when the world will end but other conspiracy theorists believe that it began last year and will be completed in 2025.
Christian conspiracy theory sited Unsealed writes: “Looking now in the rear-view mirror we can see that the Great Sign occurred on September 23–24, 2017 in immediate or close proximity to the Feast of Trumpets.
“But looking forward, I’ve learned something quite interesting: in 2025 the Feast of Trumpets falls precisely on September 23rd on both the Hebrew calendar and the more accurate Torah Calendar.
“The final eclipse lands on April 8, 2024 and just five weeks later, on Israel’s 76th birthday, a sign forms in the sky that might signal the beginning of the final segment of Daniel’s 70th Week—seven angels in Heaven pouring out seven vials of wrath upon the earth.
“We speculated this might take only several months, but perhaps this final judgment takes a little over a year, ending in the Fall of 2025.”
