In 1992, at midnight of 28 October, thousands of South Koreans expected Christ would descend and raise his followers into heaven, leaving others to perish in a series of cataclysms. Many had quit jobs and given away their worldly goods. In 1993 members of the Great White Brotherhood active in the Ukraine expected the world to end on 14 November and were accused of planning mass suicides and acts of violence. There were three forecasts for the end of the world in 1998.
Christian Identity followers in the US believe in the inevitability of the end of the world and the Second Coming of Christ. It is believed that these events are part of a cleansing process that is needed before Christ's kingdom can be established on earth. During this time, Jews and their allies will attempt to destroy the white race using any means available. The result will be a violent and bloody struggle -- a war, in effect -- between God's forces, the white race, and the forces of evil, the Jews and nonwhites. Significantly, many adherents believe that this will be tied into the coming of the new millennium.
Monte Kim Miller, leader of the Concerned Christians group in the US, claims to be one of the two witnesses or prophets described in the Book of Revelation who will die on the streets of Jerusalem prior to the second coming of Christ in December 1999. CC members believe that Miller's death will set off an apocalyptic end to the millennium, at which time all of Miller's followers will be sent to Heaven. Miller has convinced his followers that America is "Babylon the Great" referred to in the Book of Revelation. In January 1999, fourteen members of the group who had moved to Jerusalem were deported by the Israeli government on the grounds that they were preparing to hasten the fulfillment of Miller's prophecies by instigating violence.
