Overview:

These prophecies share one factor in common with all of the other predictions that were to come to pass in previous years: In spite of the obvious sincerity of the persons making the prophecies, none actually materialized.

The hey-day of prophecy appears to be over. Dozens of predictions of the end of the world were were made for 1999 and 2000. But, by the year 2002, people seem to have become disillusioned at the continual failure of the industry. Few prophecies are being predicted for 2002 or future years. Still, such fundamentalist Christian leaders as Jack van Impe seem to still have high ratings on television.

Predictions of TEOTWAWKI (The end of the world as we know it):

bullet2002?: The Last Adam, the only person "who knows how to have telepatich-contact [sic]" with UFO people who come from the sun predicts that the earth will be destroyed after the year 2001 by God. See: http://www.thelastadam.myweb.nl/ 
bullet2002-FEB-15:  Monte Kim Miller, (b. 1954) is founder and prophet of the Concerned Christians -- group of at least 78 adults and children. Miller believes that the world was created circa 4000 BCE, and that the seventh millennium started on 2000-JAN-1. He stated that the breaking of the seventh seal and sounding of the seventh trumpet mentioned in Revelation happened on 2002-FEB-15, the 777th day of the seventh millennium. This would indicate that the end of the world could happen at any time after that date.
bullet2002-MAR-24: Paul Smirnov, an Orthodox Christian, issued an Email to media, religious and music groups on MAR-20. It predicted that God would send an asteroid that will destroy Hollywood and the rest of Los Angeles on MAR-24. It will coincide with the Oscar ceremonies. He predicts that most residents of LA will not heed his warning and will needlessly die. He interprets Revelation 18, verses 2 and 21-23) as follows:
bulletThe stone that an angel picks up is an asteroid.
bullet"Babylon" is referring to Los Angeles.
bulletThe reference to harpists, musicians, craftsman and sorcery refer to Hollywood film producers.
bullet2002-APR-14: Mike Keller Pure predicted that a second before midnight on this date, something called the "Doomsgate" will open. Christ will return. Worldwide nuclear war will begin about MAY-29. The poles of the earth will shift, and there will be world-wide disasters.
bullet2002-OCT-26 and NOV-8: Paul Smirnov has issued updates for the date on which he expects an asteroid to land on Los Angeles. These predictions did not come true either. He has also prophesied that the whole West (America and West Europe) is a modern Babylon whose economy will suddenly collapse in 2002. He believes that the Antichrist should appear in 2003.
