Will Asteroid DA14 be the End of the World?
A 60 meter asteroid, known as DA14, will pass by our planet on February 15, 2013 at a distance of less than 16,700 miles. This distance is closer than the orbit of some satellites.
Many wonder if this event will be the end of the world that the Mayan calendar predicted for the end of 2012.
The only reliable source for information about the future is the Bible. Its predictions are the only ones that have always come true. (see this page for an example)
Does the Bible Mention an Asteroid or other Things from Space?
Yes and no, the Bible does mention that at the end of the world there will be fearful things taking place in space, but it doesn't specifically mention an asteroid. In Matthew 24:29 the Bible says that "the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:"
In Jeremiah chapter 10 the Bible reads: "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them." (Jeremiah 10:2)
Read carefully the verse below found in the book of Luke, it speaks of fearful sights and great signs from heaven but also says that a great religious persecution will take place. The worldwide false religious movement is the great event that we should really be paying attention to.
"And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute [you], delivering [you] up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake." Luke 21:11-12
At the end of the world, the safe place to be is on the side of those who are persecuted.
What does the Bible Say about the End of the World?
The Bible indicates that the world will come to an end at the return of Jesus, at the culmination of a world wide religious war, called the Battle of Armaggeddon, waged by a counterfeit version of Christianity.
(See this article for more information about the Coming Religious War predicted in the book of Revelation)
The signs in heaven and on the earth are placed there for an indication of where we are in time and as warning beacons to alert people to be ready for the last great crisis. To be ready to meet God with pure hearts and clean hands.
Friends, only Jesus can do the cleansing that is required to gain an entrance to the kingdom of Heaven. The good news is that He will do that for you and for anyone, and it is free.
