Before now, several notable and respected men in the world had predicted dates of the coming of Jesus Christ and the end of this world, contrary to the plain statement of the Bible as found in the book of Matthew 24:35-36 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone."

To the question before us, "Will this world end?" Many people have been disappointed as Kyle Butt noted in his article titled "What will Happen when Jesus comes again?" that "Yet, although the predictions of Christ’s return have been copious, each group of expectant “believers” has been disappointed to find that they had been misled. When will Christ return, and what will occur on this Earth when He does come back the second (and last) time?" ( ... ticle=1261). This disappointment was never from the Bible, the only true word of God, but from men who have decided to speak where the Bible is silent and have thus misled many who believed their teachings against the teachings of the Bible, hence they were disappointed.

Obviously this world is ending, but all human predictions are ALL WRONG! The testimonies from the Bible is as clear as crystal sea. Let us read some of them:
1. “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep [meaning that not all Christians will die physically before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ—KSA], but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).
2. "But the day of the lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with a fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for a new heaven and a new earth in which righteousness dwells (2 Peter 3:10-13).

The next question arising from this is "When is the world coming to an end? The was answered by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:35-36 "...but of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.". The exact day cannot be predicted by any man irrespective of the technological advancement.

Does it mean that all who have laboured to predict the exact day of the coming of Jesus Christ and the end of the world are liars?
They are not only liars, they have because of their position and teachings have misled many people. The Bible already warned that "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world." (I John 4:1). So, do not believe in any prediction about the second coming of Jesus Christ or the end of the earth from human but believe the scriptures which say Jesus is coming back, but the date and day is unknown to men and cannot predict it!

What about the Predictions ever made by human?
As you would have noted, many predictions had been made, some dates already in history, while others in future and those in history have proven that their preditors are LIARS! Please for comprehensive listing of the dates, kindly click on any of the following links:

What must I do now?
You are hereby encouraged to believe the gospel of Christ (I Corinthians 15:1-5), repent of your sins (Acts 2:36-38), confess your faith in Christ (Romans 10:8-10), surrender yourself for baptism (immersion in water) for the remission of your sins (1 Peter 3:21; Romans 6:1-4; Mark 16:15-16) and the Lord will add you to the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13; Colossians 1:18, 24), which is the church of Christ, where you shall continue to worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24). Not any denomination, for denominationalism is sinful (I Corinthians 1:10-13).
If you desire to know more, you are encouraged to visit the church of Christ meeting in your locality or you may contact us either by mailing us: or visit us in our meeting place as you can find it on and Please, do not believe lies, for doing so will wreck your soul (I Kings 13:1-25)!
"He that hath my commandments, keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself unto him." (Jesus Christ, John 14:21)
