Funny thing is early millenarists predicted the end in 1873, which did not happen, so some concluded that Junior returned but we just did not notice!

There has been a long history of retrofitting failed prophecies.

1914 was actually a fairly apocalyptic year. A big war broke out that year.

I have not bothered to see how many people have tired to work The Lone Fat Boy in to either 666 or 616. Trump is pretty easy.

Besides analyzing the dsytopian shift in popular culture, Joustra and Wilkinson also suggest how Christians can live faithfully and with integrity in such a cultural context.

Let's see what's in the news today....

Millennials ruining America because.......meh, flavor of the week.
Puerto Rico wiped off the map and Americans could give a crap because they're not even a state. Meh.
Madman launches nuclear missiles over Japan - again? Meh.
Flint Michigan still doesn't have clean water. Meh.
Trump calls NFL players disrespectful for kneeling during the national anthem......

.....WHAT!?! Bunch of entertainers disrespecting the President of the United States of America?!? And their handlers are joining them in support?? That's Apocalypse material right there. We can't just have a national pastime interrupted like that with political mumbo jumbo. We have to make sure this is the number one newsworthy topic for discussion for at least a week, or until something more important comes along, like maybe Katy Perry shaving her head or Justin Beiber getting another DUI or something.
Such potential!

Is the Apocalypse near? Fish rain down in Mexico!
Sep, 28 2017 Author: Thema Newsroom

Scientists says phenomenon caused by water sprouts sucking fish

Officials in northeast Mexico say a light rain was accompanied by small fish that fell from the sky.
The civil defence agency for the state of Tamaulipas said in a brief statement that rain Tuesday in the coastal city of Tampico included fish. Photos posted on the agency’s Facebook page show four small fish in a bag and another on a sidewalk.

Putin's Voice wrote:Orthodox Patriarch warns of approaching end times, asks not to push for revolutionary change

In a public speech in the main Moscow cathedral, Patriarch Kirill said the signs from the Book of Revelation are now apparent. He also called on politicians and ordinary citizens to unite and stop the movement towards the abyss.

All people who love the Motherland must be together because we are entering a critical period in the course of human civilization. This can already be seen with the naked eye. You have to be blind not to notice the approaching awe-inspiring moments in history that the apostle and evangelist John was talking about in the Book of Revelation,” the patriarch was quoted as saying by Interfax.

Patriarch Kirill added, however, that the exact time of the end times depends on everyone’s actions. He called on people to understand their responsibility regarding Russia and the whole of mankind, and to stop “the movement towards the end of history’s abyss.”
