Humanity's had a good run, but all good things must come to an end.

The eBible Fellowship, a Christian group based near Philadelphia, predicts that there's a "strong likelihood" that the world will be destroyed on Wednesday in a fiery blaze.

“It’ll be gone forever. Annihilated,” group founder Chris McCann told The Guardian.

The Fellowship previously incorrectly predicted that the world would end on May 21, 2011. According to literature on the eBible Fellowship website, "God has been punishing the unsaved people of the earth" since then, and Wednesday marks the 1,600th and final day of judgement.

According to McCann, Earthlings should expect their planet to be destroyed in a firestorm at some point on Wednesday.

“God destroyed the first Earth with water, by a flood, in the days of Noah. And he says he’ll not do that again, not by water. But he does say in 2nd Peter 3 that he’ll destroy it by fire,” McCann said to The Guardian.

The eBible Fellowship's bold prediction comes just a few days after a number of other religious groups predicted the apocalypse along with Sept. 27's "Blood Moon," a rare lunar phenomena.

McCann did say humanity has a slim chance to see tomorrow.

“There’s a strong likelihood that this will happen,” McCann said. “Which means there’s an unlikely possibility that it will not.”
