An Asteroid Is Coming………Run For Your Lives……
The Planetary Society has offered a $50,000 prize for the best design to "tag" the Asteroid Apophis, which is due to pass close by earth in 2029. The aim is to enable the asteroid to be tracked across the sky, which will allow astronomers to predict a more accurate orbit. The asteroid Apophis is 400m in diameter, and will pass within a few thousand miles of earth. More accurate information on the asteroid's orbit will enable governments to decide whether action needs to be taken before its next approach in 2036.
Quote: "While the odds are very slim that this particular asteroid will hit Earth in 30 years, they are not zero, and Apophis and other NEOs represent threats that need to be addressed," said Rusty Schweickart, Apollo astronaut, head of the Association for Space Explorers NEO committee. Bruce Betts, The Planetary Society's Director of Projects said, "With this competition, we hope not only to generate creative thinking about tagging Apophis, but also to stimulate greater awareness of the broader near-Earth object threat."
The book of Revelation seems to indicate the Mediterranean Sea will be hit by an asteroid strike during the tribulation period, which will destroy a third of shipping and sea life. It has been said that even if we knew exactly when an asteroid was to strike the earth, aside from evacuating probable impact zones, there is currently little we could do to prevent it. See, once GOD has spoken something there are no other plans to stop the Master Plan. The bottom like is Christ will Rapture HIS church and the only way to be saved from the tribulation period is to ask GOD now to forgive you for your sin, turn from sin and sin no more. Ask Christ to be the Lord of your life, and to take over your life. He already paid the price, all you have to do is let HIM.
And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
I am not saying that the Asteroid Apophis will be the Asteroid that is mention in Revelation 8:8-9, But I am saying we need to be on the lookout for something like this to happen.
I have studied prophecy for more than 30 years and we are closer than we think.The mountain of fire is one of so many.I get so excited and sad when I read the news because the world is so lost and so clueless though the facts are staring them in the face. Was it not so that very first Christmaxs? Anyway --about your article---well done --keep telling it.
