A massive asteroid named after Apophis, the ‘God of Chaos’, is speeding up as it travels towards Earth with a potential impact date in an explosion that would be equivalent to 880 million tons of TNT.
Experts warn the asteroid is gaining speed and could strike our planet in 48 years according to astronomers.
Prior to this discovery the impact was said to be improbable, but new findings suggest the asteroid has a chance of crashing into Earth on April 12, 2068 – and it could be catastrophic.
Since Apophis is more than 1,000 feet wide and an impact would be equivalent to 880 million tons of TNT exploding all at once.
Apophis was discovered by astronomers on June 19, 2004, and since then the asteroid has been tracked as it orbits the sun. When researchers spotted Apophis again this year they determined it had picked up speed.
This is known as the Yarkovsky effect, where as the asteroid’s body heats up in sunlight, it re-radiates the energy away as heat, which acts as tiny thrusters for the cosmic object.
Astronomers had thought before this effect happened, an impact in 2068 was not probable, but they have since changed their tune.
One of the astronomers, said: “The new observations we obtained with the Subaru telescope earlier this year were good enough to reveal the Yarkovsky acceleration of Apophis, and they show that the asteroid is drifting away from a purely gravitational orbit by about 170 meters per year, which is enough to keep the 2068 impact scenario in play.”
The Revelation prophecies foretell that an asteroid looking like a great mountain burning with fire is coming that will not miss earth causing a deep impact with the shock wave and resulting tsunami causing chaos and destruction.
The Biblical prophecies (Luke 21, Revelation 6, Revelation 8) foretell that in the Last Days there will be signs in the heavens including asteroids that cause a Biblical cataclysm on earth.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
