    Prophecy: Earth Will be Struck by a Giant Asteroid

    As we examine the world today. Increases in violence, and the prevalence of evil all over the face of the earth, we understand that the return of Jesus for His church at the event called “the Rapture”, cannot be far off. When the Rapture takes place, the world will begin the events described in the Book of Revelation, chapter 6, “The Tribulation Period.” Beginning at Revelation chapter 6, the opening of the first “seal” by Jesus, commences a seven year peace instituted by someone who appears to be like Jesus, but will instead be the “antichrist” coming as a false “Savior”. He is described by chapter 6, verse 1 as riding on a white horse similar to the description of Jesus in Revelation chapter 19, when He returns to earth.

    At the opening of the second seal, the temporary peace that the antichrist has brought, is interrupted at the middle of the seven years, by war. The Third seal reveals the results of a massive global war; a shortage of food. The Fourth seal reveals global death from the war that has ensued. The fifth seal reveals the murder of those who receive Jesus as their Savior during this time. The sixth seal begins a description that sounds like a massive onslaught of Asteroids making contact with the earth.

  • If December 21, 2012 is The End of the World, Are You Ready?

    If December 21, 2012 is The End of the World, Are You Ready?

    It is just one day before the world is supposed to end, according to some not-so-experts. Survival gear, Ready-to-Eat meals, guns and ammunition are selling at a brisk pace. Many people are taking the threat of Earth’s end seriously.

    Scientists say that there is no chance that the world will end tomorrow. Theologians postulate that there is no indication in the Bible that December 21, 2012 is the end of the world.

    I have written extensively on the subject, and I am certain that there are no Biblical prophecies that define 12-21-2012 as the final day of the existence of life on earth.

    The Bible does say that the end of the world will come at a specific time, and it actually tells us the precise moment that the end of the world will occur. First Jesus will return to the earth in an event called “The Rapture”. This will happen quickly, violently, and without any warning. Suddenly, perhaps a Billion people will disappear from the earth and be seen no more.

    The Bible describes the Rapture with these words:

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    Verse 18 encourages those who understand the meaning of these words, to find “comfort” in them. If we believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, and are awaiting His return, then these words can bring us great comfort. If on the other hand, we have not committed our life to Jesus Christ, then the thought of a Billion people suddenly vanishing from the face of the earth is very frightening.

  • Asteroid 2011 AG5 on a Collision Course With Earth

    Asteroid 2011 AG5 on a Collision Course With Earth

    Those who study Bible Prophecy are always interested in the occurrences of Near Earth Objects that will pass within close proximity to earth. The potential for massive destruction and loss of human life, in the event of an impact by one of these larger Asteroids, gives great cause for concern.

    Asteroid 2011 AG5, is one of the most recent giants that has given scientists alarm. At more than 460 feet wide, this space rock is on a potential collision course with Earth in the year 2040. The estimated destructive power of an impact with Earth by this asteroid is about 105 Megatons of TNT, or approximately 2 larger Thermonuclear Detonations.

    In reminiscence of the recent movies “Armageddon” and “Deep Impact”, scientists have already given such great concern to this asteroid that they are planning how to deflect it.

    Discovered in January of 2011, we are only now learning of this dangerous asteroid from the scientific community. It makes us wonder if a planet killer were ever on a direct course with earth, if we would ever know about such a threat, before it would happen.

  • Asteroid Near Miss on Tuesday: Warnings of Revelation Chapter 8

    Asteroid Near Miss on Tuesday: Warnings of Revelation Chapter 8

    On Tuesday November 8, 2011, the Earth will encounter one of the closest “near miss” confrontations with an Asteroid, that has occurred in more than 40 years. Given the name Asteroid “2005 YU55″, there will be just 202,000 miles between this large asteroid and our planet. If that does not sound to you like much of a threat, understand that the moon is approximately 238,856 miles from earth. Imagine an object over 1,000 feet long, traveling at 30,000 miles per hour, and it’s distance from earth, less than that of the moon.

    Were an object of this size to strike our planet, the force would be equal to over 500 nuclear explosions the size of Hiroshima, detonated all at once. A strike on our planet of this magnitude would generate massive tectonic plate shifts, Tsunamis in excess of 70 feet, and would annihilate many Island communities, as well as those living on the coastlands of mainland countries. The death toll could conceivably be in excess of several hundred million.

  • A Chronological List of Events For the Last Days

    A Chronological List of Events For the Last Days

    This is the second in a four-part series on the Last Days. In this study we will look at a Chronology of the events from the present time in history, up to the end of time here on the earth, as described in the Bible

    Two of the most asked questions from those who are interested in Bible Prophecy, are

    “What is going to happen next in the world?”

    “What does the Bible have to say about the events of the Last Days?”

    Jesus said that the entire scope of all Prophecy in the last days, is centered around the nation of Israel. For almost 2,000 years the Jews were scattered all over the face of the earth. Being without a land of their own, they had lost their national identity and their homeland.

    While Israel was without their own country, the Prophet Ezekiel wrote of a time in the last days when God would draw the Jews from all over the face of the earth, and place them back to their own land again.

    Ezekiel 37:21-22 “Then say to them, “Thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land…

    The promise of restoration by the Lord, is that once the Jews are back in their own land again, they will be protected by the Lord and dwell there permanently. Once they are in their land, in the last days, the Lord will allow Israel to rebuilt their Temple again and re-institute the temple sacrifice.

    Ezekiel 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore.

    Israel is often referred to as being like a “fig tree” in the old testament:

    Hosea 9:10 “I found Israel Like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers As the firstfruits on the fig tree in its first season.

    Jesus said that when we see the fig tree once again blossom and put forth leaves, that we know that summer is near. This is a poetic play on words that was understood by the Jews to mean that when Israel became a nation again,back in their own land, that the Lord’s return was near.

  • Nuclear Meltdown and the Book of Revelation

    Nuclear Meltdown and the Book of Revelation

    Jeremiah 23:15 “Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; ‘Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, And make them drink the water of gall’ ”

    The term “Wormwood” is connected with judgment from God. It is not a mistake that the Holy Spirit chose this term here in describing this third objects contact with the fresh water supply of the earth.

    What intrigues me at this point is that the term “Wormwood” has also been used in describing nuclear events on the earth.

    The Russian word for “Wormwood” is “Chernobyl”

    The worst nuclear reactor meltdown tragedy in history happened at the Chernobyl Nuclear Facility on April 26, 1986 at 1:23 am in the Ukraine, Russia. Reactor four of the facility suffered a catastrophic increase in power that led to an explosion of the core and nuclear meltdown of the reactor. The explosion dispersed large quantities of nuclear material into the earth’s atmosphere and turned the fresh water supplies for hundreds of miles around Chernobyl “Bitter” or Poisonous and undrinkable.

    Isn’t it interesting that the term “Wormwood ” in the Book of Revelation is used to describe an event of the last days that has a long Biblical history of meaning “Judgement”.

  • Revelation Chapter 8 and Earth Killer Asteroids

    Revelation Chapter 8 and Earth Killer Asteroids

    Many people are not aware that on March 23, 1989, an Asteroid larger than a 1,000 foot long aircraft carrier came within 6 hours of hitting earth.
    Moving through space at an incredible 47,000 miles per hour, had it hit earth the blast would have equaled one Hiroshima size detonation every second for over 50 days.

    Designated “Asteroid 1989 FC”, this monster sized rock is so large that it belongs to a special class of Asteroid called “Apollo” that have orbits around the Sun that intersect with Earth’s orbit. Should an Apollo class asteroid strike the earth it would mean the end of almost all life. Millions would die on impact, but the real danger is from the ensuing dust cloud caused by the impact that would circle the planet, blocking most of the sun’s rays from warming the earth.

    No Sun, no plants. No plants, no animals that feed on the plants. Global acid rain would scorch the earth, temperatures would plummet causing drastic polar type temperatures all over the earth. Billions could die in just the first year after the impact.

    Two Galaxies Collide in Brightest Ever Spectacle

    Two Galaxies Collide in Brightest Ever Spectacle

    Astronomers have spotted a stunning burst of light as new stars are formed that beams out as much infrared light as an entire galaxy. The collision of two spiral galaxies has triggered this explosion, which is cloaked by dust that renders its stars nearly invisible in other wavelengths of light.

    The starburst newly revealed by the Nasa Spitzer telescope stands as the most luminous ever seen taking place away from the centres of merging parent galaxies.And the merging galaxies offer astronomers a sneak peek at the fate of our Milky Way in some 4.5 billion years when it is expected to plough into its nearest large galactic neighbour, the Andromeda Galaxy.

    It blazes ten times brighter than the nearby universe’s previous most famous ‘off-nuclear starburst’ that gleams in another galactic smash up known as the Antennae Galaxy. The new findings show that galaxy mergers can pack a real star-making wallop far from the respective galactic centres, where star-forming dust and gases typically pool.

    ‘This discovery proves that merging galaxies can generate powerful starbursts outside of the centres of the parent galaxies,’ says Hanae Inami, first author of a paper detailing the results in the July issue of The Astronomical Journal.

    The buried starburst was located in the interacting galaxies known as II Zw 096. This galactic collision - located around 500 million light years away in the constellation Delphinus (the Dolphin) - will continue to unfold for a few hundred million years.

    Gravitational forces have already dissolved the once-pinwheel shape of one of II Zw 096′s pair of merging galaxies. The ultra-bright starburst region spans 700 light-years or so - just a tiny portion of II Zw 096, which streams across some 50,000 to 60,000 light-years - yet it blasts out 80 percent of the infrared light from this galactic collision.

    The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

    The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

    For those who missed the Perseids in August, another chance for a nighttime meteor-gazing is on its way. The annual Leonid shower is coming up in the middle of the month, offering any of those disappointed by cloud-cover the nights of the Perseids a (bad pun alert) “constellation prize.”

    The Leonids are thus named because these meteors appear to radiate from the part of the sky where the constellation Leo can be seen. In 2001, the Leonids put on a fantastic show that dazzled those who were up early enough (or late enough) to watch this powerful shower of “falling stars.” Sky-gazers watched a steady stream of meteors that sizzled across the black morning sky every few seconds.

    In early November of 1833, the meteors showered across the sky by the tens of thousands. The spectacular Leonid shower of that year caused people to believe the Apocalypse was on its way, and many looked forward to the Second Coming as flaming projectiles blazed through the darkness.

  • A Shift in Earth’s Axis Causes Global Weather Changes

    A Shift in Earth’s Axis Causes Global Weather Changes

    If you listen to Al Gore and the other so called experts on the theory of global warming, you would probrably be convinced that global warming is the cause of earth’s sudden changes in weather patterns. What many people do not know is that something far more important has most likely caused these radical changes in weather.

    In February of 2010, a massive 8.8 Earthquake in Chile was confirmed to have shifted the earth’s axis permanently, according to scientists at NASA. Although the shift in the earth’s axis caused only a 1.26 microsecond loss of each earth day, the cumulative effect of massive earthquakes and Tsunamis such as the one that occurred in Chile, can cause global changes in weather as each progressively occur.

    A very large quake such as the one that occurred in Chile this year, moves massive amounts of rock that changes the distribution of the mass of the planet. As Earth’s mass changes, so also does the shift of the axis, which in turn changes global weather.

    Signs in the Heavens: Giant Asteroid’s Near Miss to Earth

    Signs in the Heavens: Giant Asteroid’s Near Miss to Earth

    How would someone who has never seen a gigantic asteroid, describe the impact that it would make as it strikes the earth? Revelation chapter 8 details the impact of earth by an object that John describes as “Something like a great mountain burning with fire thrown into the sea.” It is clear that what John was viewing was not a mountain, but a huge asteroid making contact with earth. It is a fact that during the final 3 1/12 years of the present earth, during the days described in vivid detail in Revelation chapters 6-18, earth will be pummeled over and over by Asteroids.

    One of the signs that a conscientious student of Bible Prophecy would we watching for, would be a marked increase in asteroid activity in our solar system. Just a few days ago earth experienced a near miss by an asteroid that skimmed past earth by just 28,000 miles. As we approach the day of the return of Jesus we can expect more and more reports such as this coming to us from news and Astronomical reports around the world.

    Two Large Asteroids Narrowly Miss Earth

    Two Large Asteroids Narrowly Miss Earth

    The two objects were only identified at the weekend by the Nasa-funded Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona, during a routine sky scan. The second, called 2010 RF12, was roughly two-thirds the size of its big brother and estimated to pass within just 49,088 miles of Earth hours later. While they were visible to many amateur stargazers, space agency researchers said neither asteroid posed a risk to earth.

    Experts, however, said the “double-whammy” served as a reminder of other potentially hazardous objects expected to narrowly miss Earth in coming years. Nasa estimates that asteroids smaller than 25 metres in diameter would burn up while entering the atmosphere and cause no damage. Scientists said while it was common to witness a single asteroid at such close range it was rare to see two make such close passes. Figures show about 50 million NEO’s (Near Earth Objects) pass by every day. But what made this event so significant was that the two asteroids passed so close to Earth on the same day within hours of each other.

    Signs in the Heavens This Week

    Signs in the Heavens This Week

    Wednesday and Thursday nights promise excellent opportunities to watch the Perseids blast through the black sky. Last year, the bright moon stole the stage and made for lousy Perseid viewing. This year, the new moon has politely left the sky nice and dark so that the meteor shower can be enjoyed with little luminary interference. Also known as “the Tears of St. Lawrence,” the Perseids’ annual show always falls around August 10, the day that commemorates St. Lawrence’s fiery martyrdom during the reign of Valerian.
    The August Perseid meteor shower offers one of the year’s best light shows. Between 90 and 100 meteors will fall every hour, and the view gets even better after midnight. Imagine that the earth has a face, and all day long our planet hurtles through space facing backwards. But, as it rotates after midnight into the new day, the earth noses into the very direction that it’s zooming, and it dives face-first into the dust-cloud left from the comet Swift-Tuttle. Sometimes the meteors are so large and close that they hiss and sizzle as they burn across the sky at 37 miles per second.
    This year, the earth will hit the densest part of the comet debris trail about 8pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time on Wednesday evening. Paper carriers will have the best view-time, as the prime hours to watch will be between 2am and daybreak. As long as the clouds keep away, the dark hours of Wednesday night August 11th into Thursday morning August 12th and Thursday night into Friday morning will provide the best times to pull out the lawn chairs and sit back and count the shower of “falling stars” that follow.

    Did Churchill and Eisenhower Cover Up UFO Encounter?

    Did Churchill and Eisenhower Cover Up UFO Encounter?

    With a civilian population haunted by the Blitz and the Second World War still in the balance, it was one development Winston Churchill could have done without — an incursion into British airspace by an arrow-shaped metallic object feared to contain an invasion force of little green men. Such was the sensitivity of an alleged UFO sighting by an RAF bomber crew returning to England from a mission over Germany that Churchill ordered it to be covered up with the words: “This event should be immediately classified since it would create mass panic amongst the general population and destroy one’s belief in the Church.” This at least was the allegation put to the Ministry of Defence by relatives of a senior British military aide who claimed to have witnessed the cigar-chomping Prime Minister discuss the incident with General Dwight Eisenhower as part of a meeting about a succession of “foo fighter” sightings by Allied air crews in the Second World War. The curious matter of visits by wartime aliens is one of hundreds of reports of strange celestial phenomena — from a space station covered in pulsating lights to an unusually agile rocket which buzzed a Boeing 737 at Manchester Airport — to be revealed in documents released today by the National Archives in Kew, west London.

    Solar Storm Hits Earth Causes Spectacular Show

    Solar Storm Hits Earth Causes Spectacular Show

    On 1 August, almost the entire side of the Sun that faces the Earth erupted in a blaze of activity known as a “coronal mass ejection”. These storms throw up to 10 billion tons of plasma - superheated gas - off the surface of the star and hurtling into space at around a million miles an hour. It covered the 93 million mile journey from the Sun to the Earth in just three and a half days. It was the “first major Earth-directed eruption in quite some time,” according to Leon Golub, a scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA), who warned of the event on Monday. The flare which caused the eruption was relatively small, described as a class C3 by astronomers. Other flares, known as X or M class, are much larger, and capable of doing damage on Earth. C-class flares rarely have much effect on Earth beyond auroras - the glowing displays towards the poles, like the Northern (and Southern) Lights.

    Solar Tsunami Headed For Earth Tonight

    Solar Tsunami Headed For Earth Tonight

    Earth is bracing for a cosmic tsunami Tuesday night as tons of plasma from a massive solar flare head directly toward the planet. The Sun’s surface erupted early Sunday morning, shooting a wall of ionized atoms directly at Earth, scientists say. It is expected to create a geomagnetic storm and a spectacular light show — and it could pose a threat to satellites in orbit, as well. “This eruption is directed right at us and is expected to get here early in the day on Aug. 4,” said Leon Golub of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. “It’s the first major Earth-directed eruption in quite some time.”

    Sun’s Magnetic Loop Poses a Risk to Earth

    Sun’s Magnetic Loop Poses a Risk to Earth

    A powerful NASA spacecraft has caught a cluster of glowing magnetic loops bursting from the sun while watching a particularly active solar hotspot. The new views of the sun were recorded by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) in the extreme ultraviolet range of the light spectrum over several days, beginning July 6. A video still of the arcing magnetic loops was recently released by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The arcing solar material is blazing-white at the sun’s surface, then fades to dull, hot orange near the apex. Smoky wisps blur the outlines of larger loops, while smaller ones appear to vanish among the bright, crowded others. The arcs are the routes taken by solar particles following the whipping loops ever-changing magnetic field lines on the surface of the sun. Small solar flares, hidden from SDO’s view, also emerged from the sun in this area of intense activity.

    2013 Solar Storm Predicted to Devastate Earth

    2013 Solar Storm Predicted to Devastate Earth

    National power grids could overheat and air travel severely disrupted while electronic items, navigation devices and major satellites could stop working after the Sun reaches its maximum power in a few years. Senior space agency scientists believe the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013, The Daily Telegraph can disclose. In a new warning, Nasa said the super storm would hit like “a bolt of lightning” and could cause catastrophic consequences for the world’s health, emergency services and national security unless precautions are taken.
