Is the world going to end THIS MONTH?
Conspiracy theorists claim biblical Rapture is coming April 23 when the
‘death planet’ Nibiru appears in the sky
- Conspiracy theorists claim the end of times will begin with Rapture on April 23
- It’s also claimed that on this night, the hypothetical planet Nibiru will appear
- Then, it’s said there will be WWIII, rise of Antichrist, and years of Tribulation
- But, experts have repeatedly dismissed such claims as lacking any credibility
Conspiracy theorists have sparked fresh fears that the end of the world is fast approaching.
On April 23, the sun, moon, and Jupiter will align in the constellation Virgo to bring on the start of the biblical Rapture, according to the latest claims.
And, that night, it’s said the mysterious planet Nibiru will appear in the sky, followed by the onset of World War III, rise of the Antichrist, and seven years of Tribulation.
While the predictions are certainly alarming, you probably don’t have to start bracing for the apocalypse just yet.
For one, NASA has repeatedly insisted that the so-called ‘death planet’ does not exist at all – and, over the last few years, numerologists have rescheduled the end of days countless times.

Still, conspiracy theorists cited by the Express say the upcoming celestial phenomenon is linked to another alignment that appeared back in November, indicating the start of Rapture.
The claims center on passage 12:1–2 from the book of Revelation, which states: ‘And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed in the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and crying out in the pain and agony of giving birth.’
The woman in question, according to the theory, is Virgo.
While this alignment isn’t all that rare, and is said to occur every 12 years, some claim an additional alignment representing ‘the Lion of the tribe of Judah’ is unprecedented, and will spark the Rapture.
Notorious biblical doomsayer David Meade has supported the idea that the end of the world will begin with events occurring this month.
He’s even referred to this spring as an ‘end of days convergence.’
‘By early April of 2018, the disappearance of the Church (all true Christians worldwide also known as the Rapture) will occur,’ Meade wrote in an article earlier this year.
‘This will be followed quickly by the rise of the Antichrist, the appearance of Planet X and World War III.
‘Seven years of Tribulation will ensure. This is beyond any shadow of doubt.’

Meade has previously predicted that Planet X (also known as Nibiru) will swing back around this October, passing by Earth to trigger violent volcanic eruptions.
But, Meade has been wrong on more than one occasion, as made clear by the fact that the world as we know it is, in fact, still here.
The conspiracy theorist predicted the end of days would hit in September 2017, for example, and later revised this to October of the same year.
WHAT IS ‘NIBIRU’?
Nibiru, sometimes referred to as Planet X, is a hypothesised planet on the edge of our solar system.
Nibiru is a different planet to the Planet Nine, which is also sometimes referred to as Planet X, that was proposed by astronomers in Caltech in January last year.
Conspiracy theorists believe the gravitational influence of the ‘rogue planet’ Nibiru disrupted the orbits of other planets hundreds of years ago.
They claim the next disruptive passage into the inner solar system could happen at any time.
Some claim that this ‘planet’ is sending ‘plasmatic energy particles’ through our solar system.

The flow of energy will disrupt the ‘core flows’ of the Earth and trigger catastrophic changes in Earth’s climate.
They claim, since 1996, we have already been feeling the disruptive effects of the inbound rogue Planet X.
Conspiracy theorists often blame natural disasters and freak weather patterns on the planet.
‘Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax,’ NASA has said. ‘Obviously, it does not exist.’
Experts have continually dismissed the claims.
In September, former Ministry of Defence UFO expert Nick Pope told MailOnline that end times theories involving Nibiru ‘lack critical thinking’.
And, NASA has slammed Nibiru theories several times, explaining that the hypothetical planet is nothing more than an ‘internet hoax.’
On one occasion, the space agency simply explained: ‘The planet doesn’t exist, so there will be no collision.’
