Wormwood Hits Earth
The third Trumpet judgment in Revelation 8 speaks of Wormwood, a “star” that falls from the heavens, poisoning the waters and killing many people. Wormwood is an ancient word for a poisonous plant (Jer. 9:15; 23:15).
10 The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— 11 the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.
Is Wormwood already headed toward Earth? What’s more, do government officials already know the answer to that question?
Perhaps you’ve heard about the asteroid Apophis. According to NASA, it’s scheduled to enter our atmosphere on Friday the 13th, in April of 2029…
8 short years way!
Traditional scholarly interpretationfor the timeline of the Trumpet Judgments have them playing out in years 3-5 of the 7-year Tribulation. That’s saying the judgements basically arrive around the middle of the Tribulation period.
So the question that needs to be asked is this: If the deadly asteroid of Revelation 8 arrives in the middle of the Tribulation on April 13, 2029, how far would we be today from the start of the Tribulation.
How close will massive asteroid Apophis come when it passes Earth in 2029?
370-meter Apophis asteroid's approach towards Earth caused widespread concern when it was first identified, raising fears of an actual collision.
The massive asteroid 99942 Apophis was formerly believed to be one of the deadliest asteroids in space with a high chance of colliding with Earth. The 370-meter asteroid's approach towards Earth caused widespread concern when it was first identified, raising fears of an actual collision.
Apophis would fly by Earth in April 13, 2029, at a height of less than 32,000 km. To give some perspective, the moon is at a distance of 384,400 km. It is indeed significant because it would be closer than many geostationary satellites which are 36,000 kms away from the Equator. Apophis will be the nearest an asteroid of this size has ever been. It will be so near that everybody in the Eastern Hemisphere, with or without observatories or telescopes, will be able to view it.
