Second coming of Jesus to spark apocalypse on New Year's Eve, according to computer programmer
You may want to hold off making any New Year's Resolutions. The apocalypse may be coming sooner than we think -- the end of this month, actually.
According to computer programmer Nora Roth, Jesus will come back to Earth and incite the rapture. She came to this conclusion after performing calculations. On her website, Mark of the Beast, she asks: "Are 6,000 years of sin almost over? Will Jesus come in 2016?"

She then answers the burning query: "The Bible presents enlightening, logical, and compelling answers to these questions. In short, yes!"
How does Roth explain her outrageous claim? She uses the 70 "sevens" prophecy from the Book of Daniel. The "sevens" are Jubilee cycles; 70 Jubilee cycles are 3,431 years, which marks the second coming of Jesus. The 3,431 years are set to end in 2016 -- this year.
"In the fall of 2016 the 6,000 years of sin on earth will come to an end, everlasting righteousness will be brought in, and Jesus will come again to take His people to heaven," Rosh said. "Then the earth will begin its 1,000 years of rest."
Whether Roth's prediction will come true, we just have to wait until New Year's.
