2016 Predictions: End Of The World Theories Combine Nostradamus Prophecies, Bible’s Jesus – Antichrist End Times, And World War 3 : The predictions for 2016 are already starting to come in hot now that the New Year’s Day is almost upon us. So far, the 2016 predictions are looking fairly interesting. While World War 3 fears have become common due to saber rattling by China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia, some people are combining the 2016 Nostradamus predictions with Bible prophecies related to Jesus and the Antichrist’s end times.
Throw a giant asteroid into the WW III mix, and these 2016 conspiracy theories are certain to be a blast. In a related report by the Inquisitr, the U.S. military is preparing their WMD bioweapon defense teams for a potential end of the world threat, but their efforts eerily resemble the fiction related to a zombie apocalypse virus.
The last two years have not been good to end of the world predictions. There were multiple 2015 asteroid impacts that proved to be untrue, some tried to claim the Mayan calendar actually ended in May of 2015, and the Norse myth of Ragnarok came to pass.
Instead of being doom and gloom, like the myths portrayed, the end of the world date for Ragnarok was so much real world fun that Thor may want to do it again.
The End Times Prophecies Of Daniel In The Bible
End times predictions have always been a tricky subject since Jesus said, “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Regardless, many Christians have attempted to use other prophecies in order to guess the time frame in which the Antichrist may usher in the end of the world.
Obviously, all of these old predictions have been wrong about Jesus’ second coming, but some point out that Daniel 9:24 gives a time limit for these events to happen.
“A period of seventy sets of seven has been decreed for your people and your holy city to finish their rebellion, to put an end to their sin, to atone for their guilt, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to confirm the prophetic vision, and to anoint the Most Holy Place.” – Daniel 9:24
In this case, the Bible verse may be referring to Jubilee cycles, a 49 year period which ended with debts being cancelled and servants being set free. Thus, “seventy sets of seven” is referring to 3,431 years.
Scholars generally agree on how these numbers may be calculated, and there are some technicalities, but the disagreement begins when it comes to matching Bible predictions to the modern calendar.
The traditional date for the Jewish exodus from Egypt is 1446 B.C., and thus the year that the Jews entered Canaan would be 40 years later, or 1406 B.C. This starting date is very important to Daniel’s prophecy, since the prediction would point to the year 2016 A.D. assuming that the Jews entered Canaan in 1416 B.C., which is a position advocated by some websites.
“God’s people will be totally and permanently delivered from sin and Jesus will come again,” claims MarkBeast.com. “The second coming of Christ will occur at the exact time predicted in Daniel’s prophecy. In 2016 there will be an end to sin in the world, Jesus will come the second time, and then the end of the world will come.”
