Why Revelation 8 Predicts a Giant Asteroid Crashing Into Earth


After decades of pastoring, preaching and expositing on the Bible, it was only this year while researching for my book The Wormwood Prophecy and conversing with astronomers and government information specialists that it dawned on me:

Revelation 8 and the first four trumpet judgments appear to describe the different stages of a singular event—a large asteroid impact on planet earth, which I predict is coming in 2029 in the form of the asteroid Apophis.

I now believe, in fact, if you were to ask a scientist (as I did) to explain what these verses seem to depict, they would tell you that the details of Revelation 8 very much match the sequence of either a binary asteroid (two asteroids orbiting a common barycenter—the area of mass around which two or more bodies orbit) accompanied by smaller fragments—or the breakup of a larger asteroid into two main portions accompanied by tons of smaller debris as it enters Earth's atmosphere, followed by impacts.

Note what these verses say in their exact original order:

"Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mixed with blood, and they were thrown upon the earth. A third of the trees and all the green grass were burned up" (Rev. 8:6-7).

Aside from the obvious correlation to the seventh plague of the exodus ("hail and fire" being cast upon Earth), scorching and setting ablaze fields and forests matches the first smaller portions of an incoming binary asteroid or debris detached from a larger space body on impact with our atmosphere.

Alternatively, these minor meteor fragments could be debris caught in the gravitational field of a single large asteroid that enters earth's atmosphere ahead of the colossal rock.

Now pay attention to what the very next two verses say:

"Then the second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed" (Rev. 8:8-9).

Immediately following the first trumpet with what I believe to be its smaller portions of red-hot fragmented asteroid materials, a picture emerges of a large, burning mountain (exactly how ancients would convey seeing a sizable asteroid as it passes through the atmosphere toward this planet) impacting the sea, killing a third of that ocean's life and wiping out ships with tidal activity. This appears to be the first of two larger parts of a massive disintegrating asteroid—or the first part of a binary space object.

Observe what happens directly following this when the next trumpet sounds:

"The third angel sounded, and a great star from heaven, burning like a torch, fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. The name of this star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter" (Rev. 8:10-11).

The third trumpet details what sounds like the second gigantic asteroid fragment "burning like a torch" (again, exactly how John of Patmos would likely have explained a massive asteroid section blazing toward the world), which immediately impacts another part of Earth, causing waters normally purified for drinking to become polluted, and many people die as a result.

Finally, look at what this sequential description ends with:

"The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day had no light, and likewise a third of the night" (Rev. 8:12).

A scientist, on reading these successive verses ending with verse 12, could explain how, as a result of the terrifying one-two punch of asteroid components plunging into the ocean and upon land, a sequence of tsunamis measuring hundreds of feet in the air would slam coastal terrains around the world. It would infuse the atmosphere with scorched aerosol particles, leading to extreme heat in the earth's atmosphere and a subsequent cascade of high-velocity hurricanes worldwide. Combined with voluminous debris hurled into the sky from the initial impact and volcanic eruption reactions for about a week, darkness would cover the sky, blacking out much of the light from heavenly bodies.

I recently spoke with Dr. Steve Greene on his Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network about this interpretation of Revelation 8 and why I am making such astonishing predictions at this time. You can listen to our groundbreaking interview here.
