The Bible’s final chapters in the Book of Revelation are dedicated to the end of days, as prophesied by John the Evangelist. The Book of Revelation describes many specific and abstract events, such as the breaking of the Seven Seals and the arrival of the Seven-Headed Dragon. But mentions of the end of the world can be found throughout scripture, such as the time when Jesus Christ himself described the days before his supposed return.

And although the Bible does not specify any dates and there is no secular guarantee these events will come to pass, many Christians await the day of final judgement.

Some niche groups of Christians even go as far as to claim some of these events are unfolding now or will in the near future.

When the coronavirus pandemic broke out of China last year, conspiracy theorists bizarrely claimed the disease was foretold by the Bible.

Others have also suggested historic treaties signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates were further proof of prophecy unfolding.
