According to an online Christian group called the eBible Fellowship, Doomsday will occur on October 7. In other words, as members of this organization claim, the world will be completely annihilated today, in a great ball of fire.
Previously, it had been theorized that the Apocalypse would come during the blood moon phenomenon on September 27. The fact that the lunar eclipse had coincided with a “super moon” had caused some religious leaders to declare that this was an omen of the destruction that would come.
It had even been speculated that the combination of the two astronomic events would launch a chain of events that would eventually obliterate the world in a matter of 7 years.
Now, a week after that celestial spectacle took place with no consequences whatever, a new Doomsday date is being circulated. This allegation has been made by Chris McCann, leader and founder of the Philadelphia-based affiliation.
“According to what the Bible is presenting it does appear that 7 October will be the day that God has spoken of: in which the world will pass away”, insists the group’s chief.
Previously, the eBible Fellowship had supported the claim that the Apocalypse would happen on 21 May 2011. That prediction was proven incorrect, but now the Christian organization is emphatic that its calculation is accurate. The doomsayers even suggest that they know how Earth will be annihilated: with fire.
As McCann points out, the first Doomsday happened during Noah’s time, by flood, but that will not be repeated again. Instead, the cult leader alleges the end of the world will be in flames, as stated in the Second Epistle of Peter, Chapter 3.
The date of October 7 has been proposed based on a previous Apocalypse prediction made by Harold Camping in 2011.
The Christian radio host had announced his Family Radio audience that Doomsday will happen on May 21, that year, but nothing out of the ordinary happened that day, and Camping retired from the public eye soon afterwards.
McCann believes however that the prophecy was partially correct, since that was actually “judgement day”, when God decided which churchgoers would survive the alleged Apocalypse of today.
According to the eBible Fellowship founder, 1,600 days have passed since that day, giving God time to decide which non-churchgoers would also be saved. He also purports that “10,000 overall days of judgement” have been completed today, which also marks the last day of the “Feast of Tabernacles”.
While McCann is fairly confident that his foretelling is correct, he does admit that “there’s an unlikely possibility that it will not” happen as expected.
Meanwhile, scientists are making their own calculations regarding when and how life on Earth will eventually disappear. The most frequently cited theory is that the Sun, whose temperatures are already escalating, will eventually expand, and destroy the planet in about 7.6 billion years.
