An extraordinary event happened in Russia. A meteor exploded over a populated area causing injury and damage. Immediately the false prophets of Armstrongism jumped into prophecy mode and used it as a sure sign of approaching doom and gloom. Did you know that meteors/comets could also be the prophesied "wormwood" from revelation?
The non-ordained false prophet Robert Thiel was the first to jump on the band wagon since he, and he alone, is the worlds foremost authority on prophecy. The desperately seeking to be recognized false prophet said:
Despite the relatively small odds of a significantly large asteroid hitting the earth this century, something from space, probably an asteroid or a comet, is prophesied to do so.
Over 1900 years ago, the Apostle John was inspired to write the following in the Book of Revelation 8:10-11:
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. 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.A large comet hitting the earth would also seem to have similar effects to that of a medium-sized asteroid. And having something actually hit the earth and do massive damage is predicted in the Bible.
Although the biblical Wormwood does not have to be a comet, and possibly could be an asteroid (or at least possibly come from the asteroid belt), it sounds more like a comet than an asteroid.
In addition to looking like a star falling from the heavens looking like a torch (and an asteroid could possibly do that), comets normally appear with cyanogen. Astronomers state hydrogen cyanide on comets may be their source of cyanogen gas.
Interestingly, the cyanogen gas mixes with water to form hydrogen cyanide, which has an almond odor and bitter taste, and reportedly causes death at concentrations over 5 parts per million.
And thus for Bible skeptics, the fact that before humans had any idea that comets could produce a poisonous bitter water, it is recorded in the Bible. This should be additional proof to those willing to see that the Bible has been inspired by God.
And while comets are still more likely to fulfill the Wormwood prophecy than asteroids, humans still have no real effective way to deal with potential asteroid devastation, and some day, a major object from the sky will strike the earth according to biblical prophecy.
NASA scientists now know that at least 1,000 nearby asteroids could do that, and have long known that certain comets could do this as well.
And part of Russia today, got to experience just a small foretaste of what objects from outer space can do.
