It all ends today... maybe.
The world will cease to exist on April 23, according to a prediction that has some laughing, some yawning and yet others making preparations that could leave their lives in shambles. The warning about an upcoming Rapture, from numerologist David Meade, follows a long tradition of end-of-days predictions.
David Meade tells the Daily Express 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.
The passage 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.”
In the passage, the woman is represented as Virgo. According to Meade, the alignment represents “the Lion of the tribe of Judah,” marking the Rapture, the belief that Christ will bring the faithful into paradise prior to a period of tribulation on earth that precedes the end of time.
Meade said he believes the so-called Planet X, which is also known as Nibiru, will appear above the sky on the April date, causing volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and earthquakes.
This isn't the first time that Meade has claimed the end of the world is upon us. In September 2017 he claimed the world was ending on Sept. 23 with a collision between Earth and Planet X. He later backtracked on that date and later said that it would only mark the beginning of a series of catastrophic events that have yet to take place.
NASA repeatedly has said Planet X is a hoax.
