‘Beast’ asteroid to fly past Earth on June 8, 2014

A reader sent me a link to the following:

The Chelyabinsk meteor that exploded over Russia in February 2013 – breaking windows in some 7,200 buildings in six cities across the region and injuring some 1,500 people – was an estimated 20 meters in diameter. This weekend, an asteroid more than 10 times larger will sweep silently past Earth, at a safe distance. Astronomers are taking special note of this object because they discovered it only two months ago. They’ve nicknamed it the Beast. It’s a reminder that we live in a cosmic shooting gallery, a solar system where unknown asteroid behemoths still glide unseen.

This new asteroid, formally known as 2014 HQ124, measures about 1,067 feet (325 meters) in diameter. It will be 3.3 times the moon’s distance away from Earth at its closest approach on Sunday, June 8, 2014, when it’ll be moving at slightly more than 14 kilometers per second…

Bob Berman, an astronomer with Internet astronomy outreach venture Slooh, told National Geographic:

If [the Beast] were to impact us, the energy released would be measured not in kilotons like the atomic bombs that ended World War II, but in H-bomb type megatons.

In other words, if it were to hit us (which it won’t, this time), it would be catastrophic for Earth, with the potential to wipe out an entire city.

Will we see it from Earth as it passes? As usual, no. The asteroid is far too faint and distant to view even with most small telescopes.  earthsky.org/space/asteroid-nicknamed-beast-to-fly-past-earth-june-8

As Jesus stated in Matthew 24:6, “the end is not yet.”

However, the Bible is clear that there will be signs in the heavens and destruction from them, but this 2 1/2 years or more after the start of the Great Tribulation (which has not yet began):

15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains…29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. (Matthew 24:15-16)

10 Then the third angel sounded: And 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. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

12 Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night. (Revelation 8:10-12)

So, the Bible clearly teaches that the “end of the world” events will include problems that will come from space (called the heavens above).   See also Wormwood and Planet Nibiru.

The reader who the link to “the Beast asteroid” article had the following to say:

Interesting, indeed! The “Beast” flies past Earth on the same day that PF1 (Pope Francis) is having his Mideast pray-for-peace summit in the Vatican.

That summit at Vatican City is scheduled for June 8th and includes the leader of the Church of Rome (Pope Francis), the top leader of the highest Eastern Orthodox see (Patriarch Bartholomew), a Jew (Israeli President Shimon Peres), and a Muslim (Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas). For more details, see Inter-faith ‘prayer for peace’ in Middle East is planned for this Pentecost in Vatican City.

While I am not convinced that the Beast asteroid must be related to this inter-faith prayer meeting, the “Beast of the Earth” (Revelation 13:11) will rise up and support an ecumenical (Revelation 13:4,8) power according to Bible prophecy (Revelation 13:11-18).  Steps toward ecumenical and inter-faith cooperation are happening and June 8th is one more public step.

The Bible warns against this type of “unity” in Revelation 17 and teaches God’s followers need to avoid it and that Jesus will return to restore proper unity in Zechariah 2:6-12.

Could Pope Francis be the Last Pope and Antichrist? Former Argentinian Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio is now Pope Francis. According to some interpretations of the prophecies of the popes by the Catholic saint and Bishop Malachy, Pope Francis is in the position of “Peter the Roman,” the pontiff who reigns during tribulations until around the time of the destruction of Rome. Do biblical prophecies warn of someone that sounds like Peter the Roman? Could Francis be the heretical antipope of Catholic private prophecies and the final Antichrist of Bible prophecy? Could a Jesuit be “the black pope”?
