Scientists warn a massive asteroid is lurking in our solar system

As part of his apocalyptic vision of the end times, the Apostle John saw an asteroid the size of a mountain slamming into the earth causing massive devastation. 8 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, 9 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) Well, an observatory in Chile has just spotted three massive asteroids within what is described as our inner solar system, the Daily Mail reports. And one of them, 2022 AP7, is one mile or 1.5 km in diameter and actually has the potential to cross the path of the earth’s orbit around the sun.

The asteroid known as 2006 QV89, estimated to be 164 feet (49 meters) in diameter, was first discovered in August, 2006 and according to ESA’s computer model, it will pass within 4.2 million miles of earth in early September. There is of course a margin of error leading to the odds. Unfortunately, this list is only made up of the known asteroids. Though space agencies are tracking asteroids, they are not aware of all of them. The asteroid that exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in February, 2013 was a complete shock. In fact, space agencies …
