There has been a lot of discussions centered on the large asteroid or star known as Apophis that was first discovered in December 2004. The initial observations of Apophis revealed an alarming and future threat that on Friday, April 13, 2029, with some probability could crash into the earth. If an asteroid this size was to hit the earth, it is estimated that it would resemble an impact close to 1,000 megatons or almost 100,000 times greater than the atomic bomb that was used on Hiroshima. Other estimates forecast the asteroid impact as being like all the nuclear weapons that exist today going off simultaneously on the earth at the point of impact. The asteroid is nearly 1,200 feet in diameter and weighs approximately 59.5 billion pounds (~29,000,000 tons) with a velocity of about 28,000 miles per hour. Under president Trump’s administration, an additional military branch, the US Space Force, was formed on December 20, 2019. One of the reasons for the US Space Force is to protect the earth and its satellites against deadly asteroids. NASA is also working with Space Force and other federal agencies on a workshop mission to eventually be able to discover, pursue, and redirect asteroids around the moon’s orbit that are headed on a collision course for earth.
Tom Horn, an evangelist, believes to have received a future prophecy from God in a dream that the Apophis star is the same Wormwood star that is revealed in the bible – Revelation 8:10-11. Tom believes that our government (and NASA) are lying to us when they state there is a small probability that Apophis could hit the earth and will only wipe out several satellites in earth’s orbit. As the bible explains, the Wormwood star falls from heaven to the earth as part of God’s Wrath or during the tribulation period after the third angel blows the third trumpet as we read in Revelation 8:10-11, “The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter.” According to the scriptures, this major event takes place around the middle of the seven-year tribulation period or approximately 3 to 3.5 years in after the start of the tribulation. If the Wormwood star does impact the earth on April 13, 2029 as Tom predicts, then according to the scriptures, the beginning of the tribulation would start some time towards the end of 2025 or at the beginning of 2026. This would also indicate that the rapture where Jesus comes back to gather all the Saints could happen anytime between now and the beginning of 2026 (for those that believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture timeframe). With the world increasing with evil and lawlessness, similar to the days of Noah and Lot, we are definitely living in what the bible calls the last days or end times. Jesus tells us that know one knows the day or hour (Mark 13:32) but those that carry out His will and actively seek Him would know the times and seasons of His coming as stated in Matthew 24:32-33, “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things, you know that He is near, at the very gates.” The apostle Paul explains that believers in Christ would be fully aware of the end times and seasons of the soon return of the Lord and would be like a thief in the night to those that remain in darkness – 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11. As God spared Noah during the Great Flood and Lot during the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah, He will also spare the Christians from His wrath as we read in 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10, “For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him.”
Since many end times bible prophecy scriptures have already been fulfilled or are taking place now before our eyes, we need to make sure we are ready and watchful for the rapture. Those Christians that have already passed on will be raptured first and then we who are still alive will be caught up with them within a twinkling of an eye as stated in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, “But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” When we are caught up with the Lord, we will all receive new glorified immortal bodies. Our perishable bodies made up of flesh and blood will be changed to imperishable and incorruptible bodies as explained in 1 Corinthians 15:50-58, “I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
We are NOT predicting the date or year of when the rapture will take place but are only stating that God’s word is revealing more and more as signs or events take place further indicating the fast approaching return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We do not want anyone to experience God’s Wrath or the Great Tribulation which will be the worst time that has ever occurred on earth since its existence as explained by the prophet Daniel as we read in Daniel 12:1-3, “At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” You can escape God’s Final Wrath & Judgement by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior – Titus 2:13.
