Part 2 of two 2 parts:
"The End" is predicted
some vague time in our future:
Predictions have been made of
several events that some Christians believe are related: the second coming of
Jesus, the war of Armageddon, the arrival on earth of the Antichrist, the
Tribulation, the Rapture, some horrendous
natural disaster, etc. Jewish, Islamic, psychic and occult predictions have
also been offered as well. 1
In this section of our web site, we
have listed over 7 dozen past predictions
of TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it) which were supposed to have happened in our past. They all have one factor in
common: none have ever come true. There is every likelihood that most (perhaps all)
of the future predictions will not materialize either.
Listed below are a few dozen additional predictions for some remarkable events in the 2010's or beyond.
We offer no guarantees that the
prophets listed below actually made these predictions. We have described their
alleged predictions as they were reported on the Web, in newspapers, books, etc.
We do not have the resources to track down original source material.
Predictions of TEOTWAWKI in the future, mostly at a specific time:
Predictions of TEOTWAWKI at a specific date or between a range of dates:
1998 to 2012 Gordon-Michael Scallion predicted major catastrophic
earth events: global warming, melting polar ice caps, earthquakes, volcanoes
21st century: Thomas Chase predicted that when the world's population reaches 6.66 billion, the war of
Armageddon may occur. It reached this number about 2006 and reached 7.7 billion in early 2019, and is still increasing. 6,7
Sometime before 2019: Tathagata predicted in 1999 that the end of the
world as we know it will happen within the next twenty years. an imbalance in gravity will cause the disappearance of all civilizations by a 1000 meter high tsunami, as well as earthquakes, volcanoes and "crustal formations. ... Most of creatures are to be exterminated." 9
Sometime between 2016 to 2044: Joseph F. Dumond has written a book titled "Remembering The Sabbatical Years of 2016: Breaking The Curses By Obedience." It deals with the Sabbatical years of 2016, which include 2016, 2023, 2030, 2037, and 2044. Apparently, there are four different types of Sabbaths. Details are skimpy but these are additional Hebrew Sabbats beyond the weekly Saturday Sabbath. Knowing when they are helps us understand where we are in the "last days." They include yearly, a 7 year Sabbatical cycle, and Jubilee years. Read reviews or order this book safely from Amazon.com online book store
Starting in 2050: The Breakthrough National Centre for Climate Restoration, an environmental think-tank in Melbourne, Australia, issued a report that refers to climate change as:
"... a near- to mid-term existential threat to human civilization." 10
They predict that if world governments continue on their present path, that:
"... human systems [will] reaching a āpoint of no returnā by mid-century, in which the prospect of a largely uninhabitable Earth leads to the breakdown of nations and the international order."
They suggest that this could only be prevented by an effort that is:
"... akin in scale to the Word War II emergency mobilation, towards attaining a worldwide industrial system that has zero emissions. Othewise positive feedback loops will be triggered that will lead to accellerating collapse of key ecosystems, "including coral reef systems, the Amazon rainforest, and in the Arctic. ..."
"Even for 2Ā°C of warming, more than a billion people may need to be relocated. ... In high-end scenarios, the scale of destruction is beyond our capacity to model with a high likelihood of human civilization coming to an end."
This future projection would not be as devestating as many other "end of the world" scenarios, because a small percentage of humans could probably survive by hunting, fishing, and farming on that small part of the Earth that would sustain human life. With no significant industrial production, the greenhouse gasses would eventually dissippate, and the Earth's surface temperature would eventually return to normal.
