As more and more Earth-threatening asteroids are detected flying overhead, a wave of earthquakes raises fears that ‘the big one” threatening California is imminent. A Nibiru expert explains that both are symptoms of the end-of-days astronomical interplay that is predicted to precede the Messiah.
The Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), the watchdog organization tasked with warning NASA about extraterrestrial earth-threats, designated the asteroid 216258 (2006 WH1) as a potentially hazardous asteroid (PHA). The asteroid, one of the largest to approach the earth this year and is hurtling towards the earth at 26,843 miles per hour. CNEOS assured the residents of earth that the asteroid will miss the Earth by about 0.03904 astronomical units or roughly 3.6 million miles from the planet’s center. This “near miss” is scheduled to take place on December 20 at 11:17 am EDT.
But if NASA’s calculations are a tiny bit off, the results of an impact would be devastating. With an estimated diameter of 1,772 feet, 216258 (2006 WH1) is significantly taller than the Empire State Building. more …
Opinion: Old Testament Biblical watchmen looking for the first coming of Messiah have interestingly similar eschatology to New Testament end time followers.
“Before the great and terrible day of Hashem comes,* I will set portents in the sky and on earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.” Joel 3:3
Yuval Ovadia, whose videos on Nibiru have garnered hundreds of thousands of views, notes that despite assurances by NASA and other experts, large asteroids slip through the high-tech systems designed to detect them on a regular basis.
Ovadia, an observant Jew, noted that despite its catastrophic consequences, the appearance of Nibiru should be welcome as the harbinger of the Messiah. This is based on the Bible which contains a prophecy of a star signaling the arrival of the Jewish Messiah.
New Testament believers have the book of the Revelation that confirms:
“The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8-9)
This 2nd Trumpet judgment appears to be a giant asteroid or meteor crashing into the Earth’s oceans. This has happened to Earth hundreds of times in its history. The latest was on June 9, 2006 when a meteor slammed into northern Norway with an impact force equal to the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan.
The OT prophet Joel called it the great and terrible day of the Lord. Jesus called it the Great Tribulation:
“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matthew 24:21 NIV
Jesus never leaves His children without hope: He told His church that they will be “kept from (Greek ek, out of) the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.” Revelation 3:10
