Asteroids, earthquakes, and timelines when Jesus will return all have failed to come true to this point. In 2015 there was an asteroid expected to hit the earth along with the four moon prophecy by church leaders, but it missed us, and the world stood silent. There is nothing in the news about 2016, but standby.

The Book of Mark makes it clear that only the Father knows when the final trumpet will blast.

"However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows."

There are many others predictions when the world will end and so far, we're in clear.

Harold Camping was an evangelist and predicted before he died that the Rapture would be accompanied with earthquakes. He said God was calling three percent of the population to Heaven. He launched a campaign on Family radio that called of 2011 to be the end of the world. It never happened, obviously and he passed on in 2013.

Edgar C. Whisenant predicted the Rapture in 1988 during the month of September and wrote 88 reasons why the Rapture would happen and the Christian community embraced this as truth. When this didn’t happen he released other books explain the Rapture would happen in 1989 and in1994.

Remember Y2K computer bug would trigger an economic collapse allowing the Antichrist to come into power when 2000 hit? Authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins warned people of the pending dangers and it set off a panic in some communities.

Always test the prophetic words, go to the Bible first. Test it and don’t be deceived.

“When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him (Deuteronomy 18:22).”
