April 23rd, 2018: #nottherapture

A rapture date for something that happened over 6 months ago? Here is what I’m talking about. This is beyond “fake news”. This is news brought to you by AI and Christians bought into this one too. September 23rd is when Jupiter was in Virgo, not April 23rd. Jupiter is now in Libra while the Sun is in Cetus and the Moon is in Cancer. Like I said, none of this is true and FOX News is promoting it. So this tells me its for Conservative Christians. We are seeing false sign after false sign.

“David Meade tells the U.K.’s Daily Express newspaper that on April 23, the sun and moon will be in Virgo, as will Jupiter, which represents the Messiah.

For a certain branch of evangelical Christianity, Revelation 12:1–2 describes the beginning of what is known as the Rapture and the second coming of Christ.” (http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/04/11/biblical-prophecy-claims-rapture-is-coming-april-23-numerologist-says.html)

“It is thought that Virgo is the woman from the passage. On April 23, the sun and moon will be in Virgo, as will Jupiter, which represents the Messiah. Experts at first dismissed this claim when they discovered this alignment happens every 12 years. However, the conspiracy theories claim another planetary alignment, representing “the Lion of the tribe of Judah’, will make this time the Rapture. Mr Meade also predicts a mythological planetary system known as Planet X or Nibiru will appear in the sky on April 23.

He claims it will then pass the Earth in October, causing the start of the Rapture with huge volcanoes and volcanic eruptions due to its gravitational force. He 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.” (https://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/944211/end-of-the-world-rapture-april-23-prediction)

Below is some screenshots for Stellarium for April 23rd 2018. Not even close….and if you want to go looking at Jupiter as some “messiah” I would say it’s representing a false messiah. It’s in the scales of judgment. Besides, the Sun is in what is called the “sea beast”. Figure that one out.

I thought you should look at these failed predictions of “the end”.

In 1284, Pope Innocent III (d. 1216) predicted that the world would end 666 years after the rise of Islam. (do you see how long the divide and conquer principle has been going on?)

In 1658, Christopher Columbus claimed that the world was created in 5343 BCE, and would last 7000 years. Assuming no year zero, that means the end would come in 1658.

Mathematician Jacob Bernoulli predicted a comet would destroy the earth on April 5, 1719.

The newly formed Seventh Day Adventists, a group founded by former Millerites, predicted the Second Coming would be in 1874.

Mother Shipton, a 15th-century prophet, was quoted as saying “The world to an end shall come, In eighteen hundred and eighty one” in a book published in 1862. In 1873 it was revealed to be a forgery; however, this did not stop some people from expecting the end.

Camille Flammarion predicted that the 1910 appearance of Halley’s Comet might destroy life on Earth, but not the planet itself.

Evangelist Wilbur Glenn Voliva announced that “the world is going to go ‘puff’ and disappear in September, 1935.

On December 21, 1954, according to Dorothy Martin, the world was to be destroyed by terrible flooding on this date, claimed this leader of a UFO cult called Brotherhood of the Seven Rays.

Psychic Jeane Dixon predicted that on February 4, 1962, a planetary alignment was to bring destruction to the world.

George Van Tassel predicted the Apocalypse to occur on August 20, 1967, during which the southeastern US would be destroyed by a Soviet nuclear attack, according to this UFO prophet, who claimed to have channeled an alien named Ashtar.

Evangelist Pat Robertson predicted in 1976 that the end of the world was coming in October or November 1982.

José Argüelles claimed that Armageddon would take place on August 17, 1987 unless 144,000 people gathered in certain places in the world in order to “resonate in harmony” on this day.

Hal Lindsey suggested that the Rapture would take in 1987, reasoning that it was 40 years (one Biblical generation) after Israel gained statehood.

Louis Farrakhanm, the leader of the Nation of Islam, declared that the Gulf War would be the “War of Armageddon which is the final war.”

Harold Camping predicted the Rapture would occur on September 6, 1994. When it failed to occur he revised the date to September 29 and then to October 2 (and many more times afterwards).

California psychic Sheldon Nidle predicted that the world would end on December 17, 1996, with the arrival of 16 million space ships and a host of angels.

A prediction attributed to Nostradamus stating the “King of Terror” would come from the sky in “1999 and seven months” led to fears of the end.

Edgar Cayce predicted the Second Coming would occur in 2000.

The Nuwaubian Nation movement claimed that the planetary lineup would cause a “star holocaust,” pulling the planets toward the sun on May 5, 2000.

Nancy Lieder originally predicted the date for the Nibiru collision as May 2003. According to her website, aliens in the Zeta Reticuli star system told her through messages via a brain implant of a planet which would enter our solar system and cause a pole shift on earth that would destroy most of humanity.

Pat Robertson in his 1990 book The New Millennium, suggested April 29, 2007 as the day of Earth’s destruction.

José Luis de Jesús predicted that the world’s governments and economies would fail on June 30, 2012, and that he and his followers would undergo a transformation that would allow them to fly and walk through walls.

A failed prediction of a planetary alignment was supposed to cause a 9.8 Earthquake in California on May 28, 2015.

In 2015, we had a few more nutcases making end time predictions:

Religious zealots, pastor Lindsey Williams and Renee Moses predicted that a comet or asteroid would hit Earth on September 24, 2015.

YouTube user “tuddy pena” told the world that Nibiru would pass by in August of 2015. It will then loop around the sun and return past us again in September 2015.

In the case of end time prophecy, we know of at least 183 failed predictions.

2016 (May 16th): Pastor Richardo Salazar was allegedly told by God that an asteroid fully made of ice, with a 9km diameter, traveling at 30,000km per hour would strike earth killing 1,200 million people. As you probably can tell, that definitely happened and those totally dead 1,200 million people will be forever missed.[65]
2016 (June 3-4): Modern scholars got the Mayan date wrong. It was never 2012, rather it was June 2016 and there are plenty of numbers involved.[66]
2016 (June 14th-August 19th): According to this super reliable, super honest, super definitely-NOT-bullshiting “NASA scientist”, there was meant to be a magnetic reversal between June and August which would cause the Van Allen belt to fall killing 80% of life on Earth. He got this information from aliens via HAARP. Yup, aliens told our good ‘ol uncle Dr. Sal that the sky is falling.[67]
2016 (October 31st): Walid Shoebat alleges that the world is “100% certain” to end on this exact arbitrary nutjob date. As the basis for this claim, he refers to his own science of “Futurology 101”.[68]

  1. Is it me, or does it feel as though biblical things are happening, yet not exactly as the bible explains or how we imagined?

    It’s almost as if it’s all staged in a very “off” manner. It’s weird. I feel like yes, we are in end-times. BUT, one day I feel I could be martyred for my beliefs that second. The next day I feel like the end feels so far. What could this be? Continued time manipulation?

  2. And I don’t know what it is. Everything feels off. Some days I have just have this feeling like everything will be fine because I have no control over it anyways.
