English term or phrase: anti-dawn
"At midnight, at the stroke of the anti-dawn, the world will end, all will end, and He will be here, He will come for me.."

I wonder what "anti-dawn" can mean, searching google I find no context for it to fit to this sentence, which is a description of a mentally ill person's delusioned ranting.

anti-amanecer


Explanation:
Dawn is the morning, sunrise, basically a new beginning.

The writer is saying that at midnight, the world will end - no more new beginnings - thus, "anti-amanecer"
