Conspiracy theorists have been wracking the Bible and found several quotes which they believe highlight that the end of the world will come in a matter of weeks.
Christian numerologist David Meade points to a passage in the Bible, 12:1-2, which 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.”
On April 23, the Sun, Moon and Jupiter will be positioned in the constellation Virgo – which has been interpreted as the “woman clothed with the Sun”.
Mr Meade said: “During this time frame, on April 23, 2018 the moon appears under the feet of the Constellation Virgo.
“The Sun appears to precisely clothe Virgo… Jupiter is birthed on April 08, 2018.
“The 12 stars at that date include the nine stars of Leo, and the three planetary alignments of Mercury, Venus and Mars – which combine to make a count of 12 stars on the head of Virgo.
“Thus the constellations Virgo, Leo and Serpens-Ophiuchus represent a unique once-in-a-century sign exactly as depicted in the 12th chapter of Revelation. This is our time marker.”
Mr Meade says the Antichrist will step out of the shadows following this date and “I think I know who it is but there is no way I’m releasing that information.”
He said North Korea will commence World War III later this year and that the fabled Planet X – a mythical planet that is allegedly heading towards our solar system and will knock Earth off its axis and cause widespread destruction – will appear.
Mr Meade said: “Halfway through the Tribulation the Antichrist declares himself in the rebuilt Hebrew temple in Jerusalem. There’s major trouble from that point forward. Everything escalates a hundredfold.
“The Antichrist’s time is brief (a full 3.5 years) but he wrecks havoc on the earth in that time. He creates nuclear wars and as a result there is famine and pestilence.”
