“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring.
Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Luke 21:25-26This Tuesday a huge asteroid will pass closer to earth than the moon, making it the first time in 35 years that a space object this size has come this close to earth according to space scientists.
If you want to see the special event, get out your telescopes. Earth's close encounter with Asteroid 2005 YU 55 will occur at 6:28 p.m. EST (2328 GMT) Tuesday, as the space rock sails about 201,000 miles from the planet.
"The best time to observe it would be in the early evening on November 8 from the East Coast of the United States," Yeomans said. "It is going to be very faint, even at its closest approach.
"There is no chance that this object will collide with the Earth or moon," Yeomans said.
Jesus told of the fearful events that would occur upon the earth before His return in Luke’s Gospel recorded above. However, the one sure sign warning that He is returning and that Judgment Day is upon us are the cosmic signs in the heavens. According to Jesus’ own words, men’s heart will fail them from fear when seeing what is coming upon the earth due to the planets in the solar system being shaken, including the earth. This is what will happen just before Christ returns.
The sea and the waves roaring are a result of cosmic events taking place in the solar system. As we know, solar storms or a cosmic event upon the sun will affect the earth in various ways, just as a cosmic event upon the moon and stars affect the oceans, causing great tides and tsunamis. The great Japanese tsunami is an example and a result of a fearful cosmic event.
The powerful tsunami that slammed into Japan's eastern coast comes just two days after warnings that the movement of the moon could trigger unpredictable events on Earth.
Astrologers predicted that on March 19 - - the so-called 'supermoon' will be closer to Earth than at any time since 1992, just 221,567 miles away, and that its gravitational pull will bring chaos to Earth.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28We have no way of knowing just how many people collapsed from fear and heart failure when seeing a wall of water coming at them with great force. The great Japanese earthquake and resultant tsunami indeed was a fearful sign within the solar system that I believe the Lord was talking about, and will increase right up to the day He returns: Speaking of the unrepentant, our Lord said in Luke 18: 29-30
“But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”We not need to be so busy that we neglect to pay attention to the signs in the heavens that our Lord said would happen before His return.
