We found this in the Daily Star, a tabloid published in London. Their headline is: End of the WORLD: Biblical prophecy claims Rapture is coming TODAY on summer solstice. They have a comments feature with almost 80 comments so far. Here are some excerpts from the shocking news story, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The Rapture is an event many Christians believe marks the return of the son of God – and all the believers will disappear from Earth up to Heaven in the “twinkling of an eye”. But this happens after a tribulation period – seven years that are first of peace and unity around the world and then three and a half years of war and global pandemics. And Steve Fletcher, who monitors events that could signal the end of mankind, believes the Rapture starts today.
It’s good that someone is monitoring these events. The tabloid reports:
He [Fletcher] said: “Time is up and all hell breaks loose after June 21, 2018.” He explained a number of factors had allowed him to pinpoint the end of times – which coincides with Summer Solstice, the ending of spring and the starting of summer.
Egad — the time is up! Are you ready, dear reader? The tabloid tells us (with their bracketed information):
Writing on his website, he said: “Many people have had dreams and visions that the rapture will occur shortly after the death of Billy Graham [a prominent evangelical Christian figure]. “Billy Graham passed away this year on the same day as Moses, February 21. “That’s exactly four months or 120 days before June 21. “That ties in with the 120 Jubilees since creation, and 120 years being the age that Moses was when he died. Very significant number, that 120. “It’s a multiple of 12 – we have the 12 disciples, the 12 stars of Revelation 12.”
The numbers don’t lie! The grim news continues:
He also said other significant June 21 calculations include:
• From the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse – 10 months.
• From Chuck Mistler’s [another prominent evangelical Christian] death – 1 month 20 days.
• From Stephen Hawking’s death – 99 days.
• From Royal Wedding 33 days. Prince Harry is 33. Jesus was 33 at His resurrection.
• From Christopher Hitchens [prominent atheist] death – 6 years, 6 months, and 6 days.
• On June 21-22 there is a conjunction between Jupiter (represents Jesus) and the Moon (represents the bride/church) in the Libra constellation (represents the judgment seat of Christ).
Hey, this is serious. It can’t be all a coincidence! They quote some more from Fletcher, the rapture monitor:
“The odds are of all of these events occurring on the same day by chance goes off the chart of probability. Thus, I believe that True Pentecost and the Rapture is on (or around) the adjusted Torah Calendar date of Thursday – June 21-22, 2018 – on the sixth day of the fourth month.”
Then they quote other end of the world experts, all of whom have different estimates, so this gets very confusing. You’ll want to click over there to study it all, so we’ll skip that material. The tabloid ends with the craziest prediction of all — from scientists:
Scientists have several theories about when Earth will be destroyed, although none of the data points to this Monday. The most widely accepted theory is that the Sun, which is already gradually increasing in temperature, will expand and swallow up the planet. Some scientists believe this could happen as soon as 7.6 billion years’ time.
What do scientists know? They’re all fools! Well, dear reader, make of it what you will. Your Curmudgeon isn’t taking any chances. We’re ready! And as we always do with these doomsday posts, we close with this:
