Christian Numerologists Decode Biblical Prophecy - Say World Will End on Sep 23

Apparently, the world will end in just a few days.

David Meade, a Christian numerologist, is convinced that the end of days is scheduled for Saturday – the day he believes that ‘Nibiru’, better known as Planet X, will collide or pass close by Earth. Meade claims that as Nibiru draws near, our planet will be wracked with tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. According to ‘The Sun’, Meade considers this year’s solar eclipse and Hurricanes Harvey and Irma as undeniable signs that the Apocalypse is nigh.

Meade justifies his claim by referring a wide range of equally perplexing statements. The Christian numerologist has identified passages from Luke 21:25-26 as “key pieces of evidence.” These verses read:

“25: There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.”

"'26: Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”

Meade built his current doomsday calendar prediction around a bizarre numerical code that revolves around the number 33. In an interview with the Washington Post, Meade spoke at length about the code, emphasizing: "Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible], It's a very biblically significant, numerologically significant number. I'm talking astronomy. I'm talking the Bible…and merging the two."

The final piece of evidence that Meade uses to support his theory is a celestial alignment of the constellations Leo and Virgo as well as the planet Jupiter.

In Meade’s mind, these ‘omens’ perfectly coincide with a verse from the Book of Revelation 12:1-2, also known as the Rapture in certain branches of evangelical Christianity. This verse 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."

Unsurprisingly, Meade’s claims have been met with backlash from both the scientific and Christian community. David Morrison, a senior scientist at NASA, addressed this particular conspiracy theory several years ago, saying: “No, there's no such thing as a planet called Nibiru, he said. No, it's not a brown dwarf surrounded by planets, as iterations of the theory suggest. No, it's not on a collision course toward Earth. And yes, people should ‘get over it.’”

Likewise, Ed Stetzer, a senior pastor at Wheaton College’s Billy Graham Center, slammed the sensationalists and nonsensical claims, telling the Washington Post: "There's no such thing as a Christian numerologist. You basically got a made-up expert in a made-up field talking about a made-up event…It sort of justifies that there's a special secret number code in the Bible that nobody believes."
