Australia’s bushfires are the first sign of a looming world-ending disaster, according to a conspiracy theorist.
Pastor Thomas Thorn claims Earth will meet a fiery end and an asteroid will destroy the planet within 10 years, according to Revelation 8.
He claims text suggests that one of the signs of the plagues of Exodus is “scorching and setting ablaze fields and forests” – which he linked to the wildfires in Australia.
Thorn came to the conclusion after analysing this “sign” and the Book of Revelation.
He cited a passage: “Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them, and there followed hail and fire mixed with blood, and they were thrown upon the earth.
“A third of the trees and all the green grass were burned up.
“Then the second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”
