NASA is warning that an asteroid, with the power to wipe out a city, is potentially on a collision course with earth, Israel365 News reports.

The asteroid known as 2005 DE224 is 177 feet (ca. 54 meters) in size and according to NASA’s calculations could possibly hit earth on March 11, 2023.

If it misses, its circuitous route will bring it back into the earth’s orbit in 2028, 2029, 2030 and 2064.

NASA notes that typically an asteroid of this size would burn up when it hits the earth’s atmosphere, but because this one is travelling so fast, 61,000 mph (ca. 98,170 km/h), it would instantly pass through and smash into our planet

If DE224 does hit, it would produce a crater 1000 meters wide and have enough power to destroy a city. At this point, NASA suggests the chances are remote, putting it a one in 500,000.

For the past several years, NASA has been tracking asteroids that have the potential to hit the earth, causing massive devastation. To fit that criterion, the asteroid must be at least 0.6 miles (ca. 1 km) in size and come within 4.6 million miles.

To this point, NASA has been only able to track 40% of the asteroids that fit that criterion.

Since speed, in addition to size, is also a determining factor on whether an asteroid reaches earth, which is why NASA is tracking DE224 even though it is significantly smaller than its minimum requirement.

In his vision of the end times, the Apostle John referenced three times that potentially could be describing asteroids hitting earth.

But we need this one caveat.

Though, John referred to them as stars, we need to understand that the first-century prophet would have no idea what inter-ballistic missiles are. From his perspective, they would have a star-like appearance as they leave the earth’s atmosphere and then reenter in a blaze of fire, before unleashing their nuclear payload.

The only word in his limited first-century vocabulary that would even come close to describing such a nuclear warhead is star.

Revelation 8, the mountain-size asteroid

Despite this we know that at least one, found in Revelation 8, is a clear reference to an asteroid:

The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8-9 NASV)

Its mountain-like size eliminates the potential of it being a man-made object falling from the sky. This one will smash into the sea causing massive devastation and tsunamis that will wipe out a third of the ships.

Revelation 6, the fig asteroids

The second potential reference to asteroids is found in Revelation 6:

13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. (Revelation 6:13 NIV)

In this verse, the Apostle John saw multiple stars hitting the earth, comparing it to figs pelting the earth after a great wind blast.

Now it’s possible John was seeing multiple asteroids or meteors hitting the earth and during its orbit, the earth does pass through meteor belts.

Each fall, October and November, the earth passes through the Taurids meteor stream, the debris from the disintegrated tail of a small comet called Encke. This causes the night to lite up as meteors streak through the sky.

For the most part, they are harmless.

However, according to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle, on Nov 4, 2022, a house burned to the ground in Nevada County, California, and authorities now suspect it was probably hit by a meteor from the Taurids stream. READ: Flaming Meteor Suspected in House Fire in California

Though the Taurids’ meteors are generally small, even minuscule, researchers with the Czech Academy of Sciences in the Czech Republic are warning they have discovered a section of the Taurids stream with large, 1,000-foot wide, asteroids. The Czech researchers believe t there is potential for massive devastation if the earth ever passed through this area. READ: Taurids Meteor Stream Could Cause Disaster To Earth

But the multiple hits that John saw could also be describing a nuclear war, when multiple warheads are unleashed. Whatever the case it would cause such destruction and fear, that people will flee to the mountains and caves for protection (Revelation 6:15).

Revelation 8, Wormwood

I am convinced Apostle John’s third reference to a star hitting the earth is not an asteroid, but rather a nuclear strike. There are a number of clues that suggest this including the fact this one was named, its unique shape and the type of devastation it caused.

10 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 waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. (Revelation 8:10-11 NASV)
