Biblical scholars say end of world may be at hand

World leaders prepare for rapture. Religious leaders explain that Book of Malachi, Chapter 4, predicted this day:

The Day of the LORD

"Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and that day that is coming will set them on fire," says the LORD Almighty. "Not a root or a branch will be left to them." . . . . "See, I will send you the prophet Elijah [MEANING, THE POST-GAZETTE EDITORIAL BOARD] before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse."
