IS PLANET X LINKED TO MASS EXTINCTIONS? | UniversityToday.com, April 1, 2016
Space Nottity | Snopes.com, April 7, 2016 “A sensational tabloid article built upon benign statements from a retired astrophysicist to surmise that a “newly discovered” planet could imminently destroy all life on Earth.”
Despite recent hysteria that the world will be destroyed this month (April, 2016), the biblical prophetic narrative gives no indication of such an immediate and complete destruction. Moreover, the Bible (as interpreted by the historical, classic evangelical method) leads one to see that evolutionary theory and its according theory of mass extinction due to comets are in direct contradiction to its accounts.
Does the Bible say anything about comets, asteroids or falling starts in end-times prophecy? YES, absolutely. Revelation, chapter 8, verse 11 describes a great star falling from heaven (our solar system). That star’s name—according to the angel which instructed John the Apostle—is Wormwood. Whether the star is an angel, or whether it is an actual comet, scholars often disagree. Yet, again, according to the historical, classic evangelical method of Bible interpretation, this “star” means Aster… the same word from which English derives “asteroid.” The star’s falling from heaven is the result of a set of judgments sent by God upon those who ‘dwell on earth.’ The asteroid strikes 1/3rd of the waters and makes them toxic. As a result, many die.
The timing of this asteroid’s collision with earth is farther down the biblical prophetic line. There are many signs and events which must take place beforehand. As it is poised to do, if the War of Gog and Magog were to culminate tomorrow, loosely followed (days or months) by the revealing of Anti-Christ [loosely contemporaneous to when the Church is gathered together with Christ], then and only then can we start to calculate this star’s collision with earth. If those things were to happen tomorrow, we’re talking 3.5 – 4 years away at a minimum.
But the Lord has not appointed this doom and wrath for those who have repented toward Father God of sinfulness and have placed trust in Jesus of Nazareth as the only true God & Savior of mankind (1 Thessalonians 5:9). “Flee from the wrath to come! Flee for refuge to lay hold on the hope set before us—Jesus Christ” (Matthew 3:7; Hebrews 6:18).
