Overview:

These prophecies share one factor in common with all of the other predictions that were to come to pass in previous years: In spite of the obvious sincerity of the persons making the prophecies, none actually materialized.

The hey-day of prophecy appears to be over. Dozens of predictions of the end of the world were were made for 1999 and 2000. Shortly after, people seem to have become disillusioned at the continual failure of the industry. Relatively few prophecies are being predicted for 2005 or future years. Still, some fundamentalist Christian leaders such as Jack van Impe continue to predict imminent doom and enjoy high ratings on television.

Predictions of TEOTWAWKI (The end of the world as we know it):

bullet2005-JAN-27: "Slinger," a columnist for the Toronto Star who is known for his satire, wrote in his 2005-JAN-25 column that: "The Rapture Index stands at 153 today." He is referring to the measure of the nearness of the end of the world as we know it, as predicted at the www.raptureready.com website. He concludes that "the final day will be the one after tomorrow. (Thursday, Jan 27.) For some of you, this is the news you've been longing to hear. For the rest of you, tough. You'll be holy toast." 10
bullet2005-APR-06: Warren Jeffs, the prophet of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, predicted the end of the world at least three times in recent years. He has gathered his followers to be lifted up into heaven with him. Each time, the apocalypse did not materialize. Jeffs explained that the delay was caused by the unfaithfulness of the membership. There was speculation that he is planning something dramatic on 2005-APR-06. This will be the 175th anniversary of the founding of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by Joseph Smith. It didn't materialize.
bullet2005-OCT-04/05: Titu John Negovan wrote that: "There is a strong possibility that Yahshua (Jesus) the Bridegroom is returning for His bride, the church (His body/Jewish and Gentile believers), this October 04, 2005, Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets." He also wrote: "If for some reason, Yahshua does not return for His bride this Rosh Hashanah October 03-05 of 2005; I apologize for the misinformation. Do not be upset with Yahshua, or the Father (YHWH)!!!" 1
bullet2005-OCT-05: Stuart Cobbs predicted that God will close the "Church Age" and time the Rapture of the Church on this date, the Jewish holy day of Rosh-Hashana. He reasons that a 14,000 day interval (38.8 Jewish Years; 2,000 Jewish weeks) has appeared twice in past Jewish history: the duration of the wilderness generation when the ancient Hebrews were wandering in the desert, and the interval between the the dates when Jesus rode into Jerusalem (32-APR-06 CE) and the destruction of Jerusalem in 70-AUG-05 CE. He predicts that there is an identical interval between the recapture of Jerusalem on 1967-JUN-06 and Rosh-Hashana in 2005-OCT-03. He believes that the Rapture of the Church will cause many Jews to accept Jesus as the true Messiah.
bullet2005-OCT-18: Negovan wrote: "It could be possible that the last Fall Feasts of YHWH are literally and consecutively being fulfilled as you read this, and that the 7 year period known as Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation is about to begin!!!" When this did not happen, he issued a letter of repentance.
