Apocalypse Now: Does this formula mean the Antichrist will rise up in 2016?

WITH ISIS bent on Armageddon, North Korea testing H-bombs and Putin ramping up Russia’s World War 3 nuke force, it seems we're all doomed. But now some doomsdayers are predicting the beginning of the end of the world really is at hand this year.

And they've a chilling calculation to prove it.

For 666+666+666+6+6+6 = 2016.

According to the Old Testament, 666 is the number of the 'Beast' – the Antichrist sent by Satan just before Judgement Day. The Old Testament’s Book of Revelation warns: "Woe to you, Oh Earth and Sea, for the Devil sends the beast with wrath because he knows the time is short.

“Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast for it is a human number, its number is SIX HUNDRED AND SIXTY SIX.”

The world has been fearing the coming of the Anti-Christ “beast’ for years.

But in recent months the threat of apocalypse has been becoming all too real.

Last week former US defence secretary William Perry said the threat of a nuclear apocalypse is at its highest ever, warning World War 3 between the US and Russia is now "possible".

Then an official from nuclear armed North Korean warns the hermit state is on the verge of war with US backed South Korea.

Meanwhile doomsday death cult ISIS, also known as Daesh, revealed its ambition to bring about the end of the world in a chilling video.

As reported in the Daily Star Online, a new map tracking ISIS targets in Europe appears to plot out a giant crucifix over the heart of the continent – as the death cult bids to bring about the Anti-Christ.

The terrorist maniacs, also known as Daesh, fantasise about a brutal and bloody end with an Armageddon involving jihadist and "infidel" armies in the heart of Europe.

In recent months the group have been pumping out slickly made propaganda videos pinpointing Rome, home of the Vatican City, as the spot for the last battle against "crusaders". And guess what Islam, or rather ISIS, wins.

In its latest, most frightening video so far, tanks belonging to the terrorist nut-jobs are seen advancing on a crumbling Colosseum. The new film called "Meeting at Dabiq" reveals an eerie apocalyptic vision of the last days of Earth where they hope to provoke the coming of the Antichrist.And according to some researchers, the 16th century French prophet Nostradamus long ago predicted the rise of the Antichrist this year – and that a conflict will begin lasting for 27 years.

The Nostradamus Society of America believe his prophecy seemed to have talked about the Antichrist possibly coming from a region east of the Black Sea, the eastern Europe, Asia and the Middle east.

“It appears likely that China, in an alliance with certain Muslim nations (and other countries) might be the source of future troubles for many nations around the world," the society’s website claims.

“There appears to be great losses on both sides of this futuristic conflict.

“Nostradamus appears to suggest that various regions in Europe, the West and elsewhere will one day be struck by missiles in Europe.

“New York City might be the location of a direct hit.”

Online conspiracy theorist David Montaigne, who has analysed the bible the Bible along with other predictions around the world for his book Antichrist 2016 2019, said there is plenty of clues to suggest this year could be the year the beast reveals himself to the world.

He said: "Before this date, the Antichrist is just a popular and powerful politician – his behavior is still restrained and he has not claimed to be God or shown his true nature as the Antichrist."

Using various 'codes' in the bible along with other prophecies he places the timeline to doomsday from 2012 to 2019.

He said: "One day, 42 months into the seven years, his restraint is removed and the entire world will know him for what he truly is."

And that date he claims would be June 6, 2016, mid-way through the calculated timeline.

The threat of the Antichrist coming is age old and widely features in books and films.

Famously, it was the subject of the cult classic Omen series of films about a devil child called Damian.

The most famous scene was when his dad cuts away his hair to display 666 on his scalp.

According to the Book of Revelations, the location of the demonic numbers are written on the head of the Beast.
