The Rapture starts on Saturday as 'Planet Nibiru' collides with Earth -- according to Christian numerologist

The end is nigh, according to Christian numerologist David Meade.


Citing verses in Luke 21:25 through 26, Meade thinks that the recent events like the solar eclipse and Hurricane Harvey are signs of the apocalypse. To make matters worse, there's been an uptick in meteors falling to Earth. But rather than look at the science behind the increase in severity of storms or focus on the fact that most calendar years see two solar eclipses somewhere in the world, Meade sees a sign, The Sun reports.

“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," says Luke 21:25.

"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," Luke 21:26 continues.

For Meade, that translates into the end of the world and the Rapture being predicted for this Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017. Meade says he used numerological codes in the Bible to generate a "date marker" in the pyramids of Giza in Egypt.

Nibiru is "a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians," according to NASA. The first time it was predicted to fly by Earth and cause troubles were May 2003. It was also linked to the end of the world prediction for 2012.

"If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth in 2012, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye," NASA explained.

Another passage in Revelation 12:1-2 predicts the second coming of Christ.

"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," The Bible reads.

The interpretation explains the "woman" is the constellation Virgo, where the moon will be on Sept. 23 along with the planet Jupiter.

The supposed "coincidence" that predicts the end of days, is actually something that happens more frequently, every 12 years. None of the planetary alignments previously caused the Rapture or the end of the world.
