David Meade, a self-proclaimed “researcher,” is predicting that a series of apocalyptic events will begin this Saturday, September 23rd, and, “a major part of the world will not be the same.” According to Meade the mysterious rogue planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is on a collision course with Earth. When the collision occurs it will bring world-ending tsunamis and earthquakes. Meade also believes the dates of recent events like the Great American Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey’s flooding of Texas were all marked in the Bible. Meade now says his “Planet X theory” lines up with more bible codes and ancient markers on the Egyptian pyramids.
If this prophecy has prompted you to not study for a final, show up at work, clean your house, or stay on your diet, you might reconsider. I can tell you with absolute confidence Meade doesn’t know what he’s talking about. After all, if his prophecy was true you’d think astronomers would have spotted Nibiru racing toward us. They haven’t. From a biblical perspective, his proofs can’t be spotted either.
Consider the words of Jesus after his disciples asked when the horrible events of the last days would occur, and when the end would come, Jesus said, “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Matthew 24:36 NIV).
So anytime I hear someone set a date for the End, I know it’s the wrong date.
That doesn’t mean the End will never come. Just that we aren’t privy as to when it will come. In light of that, Jesus gave this advise: “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him (Matthew 24:42-44 NIV).
