World will end on 28 Feb

Mon 21 Feb 1763: Observing the terror occasioned by that wonderful prophecy [the world will end on 28 Feb] to spread far and wide, I endeavoured to draw some good therefrom, by strongly exhorting the congregation at Wapping to ‘seek the Lord while he might be found.’ But at the same time I thought it incumbent upon me to declare (as indeed I had done from the hour I heard it) that ‘it must be false, if the Bible be true.’
The three next days I spent in the tedious work of transcribing the names of the society. I found about thirty of those who thought they were saved from sin had separated from their brethren. But above four hundred who witnessed the same confession seemed more united than ever.

  1. Interestingly contemporary with 2012 coming and the "prophetic" pronouncements surely to proceed!
