Asteroids in Bible Prophecy Reveal End Times and the Rapture

Since End Time Bible Prophecy Reveals that Asteroids are a Sign that Precedes the Rapture, Can NASA Really Protect Us from a Dangerous Asteroid Strike?

Although John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy claims that NASA will play a leading part in protecting the United States and the world from the threat of a dangerous asteroid strike, the Bible clearly reveals that asteroids are one of the end time signs that precede the Rapture.

According to Matthew 24:29, one of the signs in the heavens that will take place after the tribulation is that asteroids will fall to earth.

During the judgement of Noah’s day, all the springs of the great deep burst forth. Just as the waters beneath the earth were held in reserve as an outpouring of God’s judgement, so the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter is held in reserve awaiting the outpouring of the final plagues of Revelation.

Jesus replied to his disciples’ inquiry concerning the sign of his second coming and the end of the evil world system by telling of the signs of his return. After the time of great persecution commonly known as the Great Tribulation, the signs in the heavens will include asteroids falling from the sky. After those signs, God’s elect will meet the Lord in the air as they are captured out at the Rapture.

Yeah because this is the first time we hear about asteroids since the formation of the Earth...

The Earth has been bombarded by asteroids and meteors for over 4.5 billion years so this isn't exactly something new you religious dumbass.

"Matthew 24:29-31 (King James Version)

29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."

The word 'asteroid is NOT There!!!

It's not like asteroids never impacted Earth in the past. Arguably, that's how the dinosaurs got "raptured." Not sure if they met up with Raptor Jesus in the clouds, though.

...You know, this could be a basis for a plot to a good RPG.

Destroy the asteroids that herald Wormwood, and so, avert the Apocalypse!

I can already see the OP as one of the villains...

10/31/2010 9:37:30 AM


So since you can weasel that into the bible as the end times, why not a global nuke war, or terrorism in mass scales, or *insert some other random bullshit*? Does that mean we shouldn't try to stop these things?

This is why i fear fundamentalists getting into office

10/31/2010 9:43:30 AM


Yeah, you do realize that asteroids have hit the earth for several billions of years right?

Also, they're not nessecarily trying to deflect ALL asteroids, just the ones that could wipe out a country, continent, or even the planet.

10/31/2010 9:45:21 AM


Doesn't know shit about astronomy or the bible, typical fundtard.

10/31/2010 9:50:29 AM


Precisely. What the hell goes on in these people's heads? It's like they would prefer to die and be "saved" by Jesus then be saved by technology...

10/31/2010 10:54:32 AM


Double Comment all the way, move along, nothing to see here.

10/31/2010 10:57:57 AM

Asteroids aren't stars, you'd think God would know the difference.

10/31/2010 11:02:12 AM


Dude, seriously no one can type or read this shit with a straight face.

10/31/2010 11:08:37 AM


Asteroids aren't water, though. They aren't fire, either. They're rocks that burn while falling through the Earth's atmosphere due to friction, the same way ANYTHING entering Earth's atmosphere burns. Even our own space ships need crazy awesome heat shields in order to come back down, because they have to basically enter free fall through Earth's atmosphere.

Deep space travel won't be feasible until the invention of two things: the repulsorlift and the hyperdrive. And to our knowledge neither one of those things is possible.

He's almost piddling himself with pleasure in anticipation!

he's a heretic post-trib - he will burn in hell according to RR!!!!!

<sigh> really. I wish the rapture would come and take all the self-righteous fun ruining prigs with it. No, I'm not bitter about the town I'm currently forced to live in being a overun by these types, why do you ask.

10/31/2010 12:10:33 PM


So, because asteroids have been falling for billions of years, does that mean we were always in the end times?

10/31/2010 12:24:27 PM


This fanfic needs more bad science. Can you fit aliens there?

10/31/2010 12:33:23 PM


The biblical sign is stars falling from the heavens. Asteroids aren't stars. Only one is visible to the naked eye: Vesta. It's about 320 miles across. The asteroid that is thought to have wiped out the dinosaurs was about 9 miles wide. If Vesta fell to earth, there would probably be little earth as we know it left to speak of.

So this was the part of the bible that was in between the bits about the Large Hadron Collider, T.V. and the Internet huh?

Old Viking

The passages are simple. Nonetheless he obviously doesn't understand them.

10/31/2010 1:14:52 PM


The truly sad part of all this is, everything that Matthew wrote about in this verse, has been happening since before recorded time: solar eclipses, new moons, and meteor showers. The only difference is now we understand why they happen, know they're completely benign in nature, and can even predict their occurrence.

10/31/2010 1:35:04 PM


Asteroids are a sign of the Rapture?

Uh oh, then that means it must have happened a long time ago and you Christians all got left behind. Well I guess it sucks to be you.

EDIT: Actually, I guess he's technically correct about asteroids signaling end times, but not for Biblical reasons but for rather more real ones.

10/31/2010 1:58:08 PM


I don't know that much about astrophysics or astronomy, but haven't we been bombarded with asteroid since Day One? How about the Tunguska? Or the something that killed off most of the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago?

10/31/2010 2:02:57 PM


Matthew24 :34 says that this generation will not pass away until these things happen.

Therefore if you take the bible literally they have already happened and so this passage is not predicting things about to happen now.

10/31/2010 2:20:58 PM


The second that anyone says that the bible clearly states anything is the second I stop reading.

Steve, you are a tool.

10/31/2010 2:44:22 PM


Orbital asteroids bombardment? Them Inquisitors sure do love their Exterminatuses, don't they?
