According to numerologist David Meade, April 23rd, 2019, will mark the end of the world. He predicts, using supposed codes in the Bible, that either a planet will collide with earth or it will cause world-changing events that lead to the rapture.
Meade's predictions surround a rogue planet called Nibiru or Planet X, which was supposed to encounter earth on September 23, 2017, according to his calculations. However, once that passed, the date was moved up to November and now April 2018.
He spoke to the UK Express about his predictions. He said Planet X will appear in the sky on April 23 and pass by earth in October. That will start the rapture with its gravitational force.
He said: “During this time frame, on April 23, 2018, the moon appears under the feet of the Constellation Virgo.
He continued, "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.
He concluded: “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.”
However, there are some flaws in Meade’s predictions. For one, NASA has repeatedly debunked the Planet X exists.
“Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax,” NASA said in a 2012 statement. “If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth … astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye.”
As National Geographic points out, humans have been trying to determine the end of the world for a very long time.
In 65 A.D. Roman philosopher Seneca warned that the planet would “burn in [a] universal fire.” 14 years later, Vesuvius erupted and buried Pompeii in lava, but it didn't end the world. Likewise, many 17th-century Christian Europeans worried that the world would end in 1666.
More recently, people were concerned that December 21, 2012, the end of the Maya long-count calendar—meant the end of the world.
We wouldn't recommend that you cancel your plans for May. As Matthew 24:36 says, "But as for that day or hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
