Commonly Predicted Signs of the End of the World

signs of the end of the worldIt seems that every culture has their own version of the the end-times will bring.

These various versions of Armageddon all describe what will cause the end-times, what signs to look for, how the end will occur, and (in some versions) what will happen when Armageddon is over.

With 2012 right around the corner and the Mayan long-count calendar gaining media coverage, it is worth a look to see what various cultures predict will happen to the human race leading up to the end of the world.

These prophecies and predictions are in no particular order.




The Christian Prophecies

Christianity has broken up into many different religions, all with their own individual interpretations of what the end-days will have in store for humanity.

These interpretations originated with the Bible and what the Apostles wrote about the signs of the end of the world would entail. Luke wrote:

“Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” (Luke 21 v.10-11, 25-26)

In Timothy, the signs will be clear because:

“men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:1-7)

Therefore, it is safe to say that in Christianity, the signs predicting the end of the world will be obvious and everywhere. These signs will show up in every aspect of human nature and the natural world itself.

According to Christians, even though the signs will be obvious, the actual end will not. In Daniel it is stated, “…the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.” (Daniel 12:9)

Islamic Prophecy

signs of the end of the worldIt is estimated that the majority of Muslims in the world today follow Sunni Islam. In this faith, there are more than a 100 signs that predict the coming of the end times.

Many of these are known as minor signs, which include the disappearance of knowledge and the appearance of ignorance, Rain will be acidic or burning, Earthquakes will increase – and the list goes on.

Once these minor signs occur, the major ones will follow.

These include the occurrence of three major landslides, the rising of the sun from the west, fire will drive people to their final gathering place, along with other signs.

Like the Christian faith, Sunni Islam predicts signs of the end times will show up in the natural world and will be identifiable through how humans respond and interact.

The Native Hopi Prophecies

Instead of more than 100 signs, the Hopi have only nine, and according to Twohawks.com, it can be interpreted that eight of them have already occurred. Those nine predictions are:

1. This is the First Sign : We were told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana — men who took the land that was not theirs and who struck their enemies with thunder.
2. This is the Second Sign : Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices.
3. This is the Third Sign : A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers.
4. This is the Fourth Sign : The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.
5. This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web.
6. This is the Sixth Sign : The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.
7. This is the Seventh Sign : You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.
8. This is the Eighth Sign : You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like our people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn our ways and wisdom.
9. And this is the Ninth and Last Sign : You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of the Hopi people will cease.

These signs, unlike the ones in Christian and Sunni Islam, seem to focus more on man’s altering of the planet, rather than man’s social interactions with his fellow man or any natural phenomenon.

Scientific Predictions

signs of the end of the worldAccording to Science, the end is coming – it is just not soon.

Barring any type of cataclysmic asteroid impact, it seems that the Earth is on track to be around for another 5 billion years.

According to NASA’s SpaceGuard Survey, no such asteroid has been found to date. Though a planet-altering asteroid impact, such as the one that scientists believe drove the dinosaurs to extinction, is possible, they are extremely rare.

However, Science is sure that if humanity survives for the next 1 billion years, our ancestors will be on a course for extinction. Not from an asteroid impact, but from an ever expanding Sun.

Science estimates that our Sun increases in temperature and in brightness by 10% every billion years; therefore, in 1 billion years from now the Earth will be too hot to sustain any surface water.

This will decimate all life on Earth. However, if future humans somehow learn to work around this little problem (such as moving underground and finding water – or moving to another planet), then humans may be able to survive.

Unfortunately, any survival on Earth would only last until the end of the Sun’s life. At that time, Astronomers predict that the Sun will become a Red Giant and engulf the Earth itself.

This “end of the world scenario” does not even take the human factor into consideration, and totally revolves around the natural world and events that have been observed throughout space.

There are many other predictions about the end of the world, and the signs that predict its onset. These signs range from the minuscule to the most colossal.

Some of these signs indicate that Armageddon is on our doorstep; while others predict that it will not come for another billion years. However, more importantly is not when will Armageddon get here, but rather how we live our lives before it does.

    Which had already happened…

    If you search the organization pahana on facebook it will change your life. The blue falling star is representive of world judaic based religious systems falling as it is said in the gospels. Pahana already went to the mesas they know he is here

    Apparently the hopi are in possesion of the tablets of the ark of the covenant and that these tablets remind us that during the venus superior conjunction of march 28 2013 the day before good 5riday there will be a super volcanic eruption this is supported by ice core samples. Check out pahana on facebook.

    Thanks for your comment – actually I’ve heard about the tablet, but I’ve never heard anything about the tablet as you’ve described here. Could you provide some background or sources for the info?

    Pahana means from the water as does moses the hopi are the levites.

  • Chefdrewmem

    Pahana will wear a red cloak and cap like a horned toad as is the description of christ while the soldiers mock him. Jesus comes out of the water the heavens open and a dove descends upon him the hopi say pahana iis a dove the word means from t+e water as in age of aquarius. I am the pahana I am fulfilling the gospel as tje gospel os a prophecy and not an historical event. Sorry brothers the world is almost over.
