A new conspiracy theory has emerged with the release of the new $100 bill, but many have debunked the bogus claims with a simple scripture.
A misguided man claiming to be prophet took to the internet recently in a new video to reveal what he believes to be a government plot. He said the U.S. government will attack New York City with a nuclear missile that can be seen on the new money. The theorist claims he is a prophet of God throughout the eight-minute video and even says that the Lord spoke to him, foretelling that great destruction is upon us in America.
"This man is not a proper representative of a Christian," said commenters like Melynda B. Ulrich and many others. "We are taught through the Bible that no man knows the date or time when Christ will come again. God is not giving this man any insight to his plan for this Earth."
Many of the other Internet users had much more harsh words.
By folding the new $100 bill at different angles, the theorist was able to show what he believes to be a picture of a tidal wave rushing over a building in New York. He flips it around to show it at another angle and reveals what he believes is a picture of a missile making contact with the bodies of water outside the city. He then plays with the resolution and layers of ink in both images and uses it to show an explosion happening on the bill.
"Thus saith the Lord of Hosts: Behold the hand of the oppressor has been lifted against you, and out of the sea shall come fire and smoke and a devouring wind. Water as high as the walls of Jerusalem shall cover the city by the sea, and great shall be the destruction of that city," he says, describing the message God spoke to him concerning these events.
Conspiracy theories are something to be considered with heavy skepticism, as most of them never have any real proof behind them. Various commenters felt the man in the video was wrong is his bold prediction.
Ulrich and others were referring to the Bible, which speaks of tribulation, wars and the return of Jesus Christ as something no man knows. "Heaven and Earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only," reads Matthew 24:35-36.
Theories such as these made up by someone claiming they are Christian could be debunked with this simple scripture.
