(The following scenario is not meant to be sensational. It is based on biblical prophecy and unreported news. Before you judge the content please read the entire article). An asteroid strikes Earth. A major portion of the planet is rendered uninhabitable. Millions of people die in a force many times more powerful than an atomic bomb. How real is this? Could this really happen? Revelation 8:10-12 records, “...a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers, and on the springs of water, and the name of the star is Wormwood...” (emphasis mine). “Wormwood” refers to something bitter. Can this be taken literally? First, all prophecies up until now have been fulfilled literally, and many current events are in the process of fulfilling prophecy literally. Second of all, if “a great star falling from heaven, burning like a torch” does not refer to an asteroid then what does it mean? Is it not an exact picture of an asteroid (or some space object) entering the earth’s atmosphere? There have been sightings of fast-moving streaks of bright light reported by people and shown on the news or internet. Asteroids or meteors have struck the earth before. Now let‘s turn our attention to some unreported news. It has been revealed that both the United States and Russia are developing strategies and action plans to deal with an in-coming asteroid. The writer of the article I read further stated that on the day after Christmas, 2019, “a 427-foot-wide asteroid whizzed within 45,000 miles of Earth,” which is less than 20 percent of the distance between the Earth and the Moon. Approaching the Earth at 55,000 mph, NASA didn’t even know it was coming until one day prior. It was an extremely close call! The article also said that if it had hit the earth it would have devastated a city the size of London “with over 30 times the energy of the atomic blast at Hiroshima!” It should be noted that in 2019 several other asteroids came close to Earth. Two other asteroids which scientists are closely watching with the potential to hit the planet are predicted within this next decade, one possibly as soon as 2024. If this prophecy relates to a huge asteroid hitting the planet, it will happen sometime during the Tribulation Period, which is soon to come upon the Earth, the most severe time of judgment that humanity has ever experienced!
Recognize Jesus, now, as your only Savior.

(I realize that some believe this prophecy was already fulfilled in the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster. However, assuming this event takes place in the seven-year Tribulation Period, that clearly is not possible.)
