Christian Numerologist Claims End Of The World Is Later Than April 23rd

The end of the world will not happen on April 23rd, says Christian numerologist David Meade – but it’s coming later this year.

It seems that every few years, a significant portion of people start to convince themselves that the end of the world is coming on a specific date. In 2018, many are quoting the end of the world as April 23, 2018 due to the suggestion that the Rapture will take place at that point in time. Conspiracy theorists and Christian numerologist David Meade has made it clear that the end of the world will not be on April 23, 2018 – but that the end is coming sometime between May and December of this year.

Meade has come forward, debunking the April 23rd date as “Fake News”. He has authored 14 books around the end of the world, and feels that he speaks from a place of authority regarding the end of days.

In a statement on Wednesday, He stated that “The Book of Revelation states that men will approach Armageddon on horseback…Nibiru is here and the earth will be prepared for the next event on its calendar…that’s all in the book of Revelation, too.”

According to Meade, the end of the world will happen in the following months when Christ will descend from the heavens during the Rapture. The Rapture refers to the suggestion from the Bible that an apocalyptic event will occur where the souls of the righteous are taken back to heaven while the unworthy are sent to the depths of hell.

Although Meade has given specific dates for the end of the world in the past, he shied away from giving a specific date at this point in time – instead giving a general time frame of sometime between May and December of this year.

It’s important to note that, if the Rapture were to happen, the Bible claims that there will be seven years of intense horror and suffering plaguing the surface of the planet called the Tribulation afterwards – suggesting that, while the end of the world may not be coming as soon as December, many believe that we’re in for a world of suffering moving forward.

Meade did note, however, that after the Tribulation, the Kingdom of Christ would establish a 1000-year-long reign of “peace and prosperity”, with a statement that “..the world isn’t ending anytime soon – in our lifetimes, anyway!”

If Meade ends up being correct and we manage to make it through the Tribulation, there’s certainly a possibility we can avoid the end of the world entirely – at least during the current generation and multiple generations of our descendants to come.

While Meade believes April 23rd doesn’t make sense for the end of the world, it’s important to note that he’s been wrong about predictions multiple times in the past as well. While he has made a living off of selling his books, it’s clear that his track record is anything but flawless. There are only so many times that you can predict the end of the world and end up being wrong before people start to doubt the validity of what you have to say – suggesting that we don’t really have any idea when we’ll see the end of the world, whether that’s April 23rd, later this year, or billions of years into the future. Meade is most closely associated with the September 23 2017 end of the world panic where he suggested that Nibiru – also known as Planet X – would appear in the skies, starting the period of Tribulation shortly thereafter.

The world’s top scientists have debunked Meade’s theories time and time again, but he continues to rile up a significant number of people. All in all, it’s probably not worth worrying about the end of the world – whether it’s April 23rd or later this year. The likelihood of such an event happening is unlikely, and if the information regarding the Rapture to be true, chances are we wouldn’t really have a way to anticipate the exact date.
