Find out why a group of conspiracy theorists believe that this is the date for the second coming and the apocalypse.
According to a group of conspiracy theorists, the alignment of Jupiter in the constellation Virgo on this particular date will be the beginning of the end times.
Express reports that the group, led by Christian conspiracy theorist David Meade also say that a “death planet” called Nibiru will appear, followed by the beginning of World War III, Antichrist, and seven years of Tribulation. This is all expected to happen on the same day.
Meade says this prophecy is based on astrological constellations that appeared on November 23, 2018.
This supposedly matches the book of Revelation 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.”
Meade explains, “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.”
Despite his claims, NASA maintains that “death planet” does not insist. “The planet doesn’t exist. So there will be no collision,” the agency stated.
They have been supported by Jonathon Sarfati, a chemist, who posted an article entitled “Will the World end on 23 April.”
“As usual with any astrology (or Christian adaptations of it), one cherry-picks the stars that fit the desired conclusion.
“There is nothing to suggest that April 23 is a momentous date for biblical prophecy, and Christians need to be careful about being drawn into such sensationalist claims.
“We won’t know the day or the hour — so we should be prepared at all times,” he said.
