Turn on the news or look out your front door and it isn’t hard to believe that the world as we know it is coming to an end. From natural disasters to cultural degradation to political brinksmanship, there’s a new crisis confronting us everyday and they’re only getting worse.
Of course, any careful reading of the Bible makes it clear that these crises are necessary—they are signs of the end of days that were spelled out long ago and that are finally coming to fruition. Biblical prophecies and later divinely inspired predictions have given true believers many concrete circumstances to look for so they can prepare themselves to survive the coming apocalypse.
A comprehensive look at today’s circumstances that portend the coming end of the world can be seen in this video, which provides indisputable proof that the biblical end of days is fast approaching. Some of these predictions are very clear and relate to the large-scale history of humanity; some are more obscure and didn’t even make sense until our generation witnessed them coming true.
Below are just five of the strangest and most specific prophecies and predictions made that should be taken as a warning by all who hope to survive the coming years of destruction, famine, and war and see the new era of peace.
I Timothy 4:3-5
According to Timothy, the end of days will be heralded by a time when large groups of people refuse many of the foods brought forth to provide us nourishment and to fill us with love and gratitude for the diverse bounty granted by the Divine. As strange as this sign of the end times is, Timothy is very specific when he spells it out:
“[Hypocritical liars]…order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.”
Vegetarianism and veganism are more popular than ever, and are promoted as morally and nutritionally superior diets despite the sacred use of animal flesh seen in the Bible.
The current “gluten-free” trend, the “paleo” diet, and other New Age fad diets that promise better health by denying the body the wide array of edible plant and animal life provided to use are further evidence that what Timothy prophesied is happening right now.
The Prophecy of the Popes: The Last Pope
In 1143, St. Malachy penned a prophecy describing the next 112 popes, with the final pope of his prediction witnessing the destruction of Rome and the end of the Catholic Church—which at that time comprised all of Christianity. He named this final pope “Peter the Roman.”
The current pope, Pope Francis, was born to Italian parents, and when elected as pope chose to be named after St. Francis of Assisi—an Italian nobleman-turned-monk whose real name was Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone. Pietro is the Italian/Latinate form of the name “Peter,” and is actually the name Malachy used in his prediction.
Not only that, but Pope Francis has St. Peter’s ring, which has been worn by many popes customized with an inscription to St. Francis, completing the association between our current pope and Peter the Roman.
Humanity is set to bring about its own destruction by turning away from the truth and relying too heavily on its own cleverness. These facts are explored at great length in this comprehensive video, yet nowhere is this more evident than in our modern weapons of mass destruction, especially our nuclear arsenal.
Yet the Divine works in mysterious ways, and the tools man has created will be used against the enemies of the believers in the final battle between good and evil. Zechariah’s description of what will befall Jerusalem’s enemies (i.e. the non-believers) would have been unimaginable until nuclear weapons were developed:
“This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.”
The heat from a nuclear blast is so intense that people’s flesh can literally melt where they stand, and they can be reduced to ash in an instant. Israel has nuclear weapons today, and it’s worth noting that the United States—Israel’s strongest ally since the modern nation was formed—is the only nation to use a nuclear weapon against its enemies.
Saint Hildegard von Bingen: The Flooding of Coastal Cities
A prediction attributed to a nun and scholar from the Middle Ages, Saint Hildegard, tells of a time just before the end of days when severe weather disturbances culminating in tidal waves and the flooding of every coastal city will occur:
“All coastal cities will live in fear, and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed, and even those who escape will die from horrible diseases. For in none of those cities does a person live according to the laws of God.”
Though the belief in global warming is still highly controversial, the fact that the oceans are rising is clearly evident. Many coastal cities have already been subjected to tidal waves and flooding, and other cities face dire predictions of imminent and uncontrollable floods within the next few decades, if not before.
It’s also hard to argue with the notion that, at least in the United States, coastal cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Miami are home to very few—perhaps no—true believers.
There are many prophecies in the Bible concerning the restoration of Israel as a nation and the vanquishing of its enemies in the lead up to—and as part of—the final wars of the apocalypse. Many of these prophecies have already come true or are in the process of coming true, as seen in this video, yet one is so oddly specific it bears special mention.
Ever since the end of World War II and the establishment of the modern nation of Israel, Jews from around the world have been returning to the Holy Land as promised multiple times in the Bible. Isaiah notes that Israel’s people will return from all directions, but cites resistance from nations in the north and south to let their Jews emigrate:
“Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth.”
Russia and the former Soviet Union lie directly to Israel’s north, and it wasn’t until 1980 that the Soviet government allowed Russian Jews to leave the persecution there and come to Israel. The government in Ethiopia which lies directly to Israel’s south, also had to be convinced to allow their Jewish population to relocate to Israel in an operation carried out by charitable organizations and Israel’s military.
