11/9/11- Asteroid and The Sky is Falling

24 “But in those days, following that distress, “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; 25 the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken." (Mark 13:25; Mt. 24:29)

12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.  (Rev. 6:12,13)

 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. (Rev. 8:10)

(Asteroid 2006 YU55- coming 201,000 miles near the earth on 11/8 at 6:28 PM EST- NASA picture).

Thoughts: I heard one lady speak as if the world was about to end because this asteroid is coming 201,000  miles close to the earth.  Perhaps it brings images of Bruce Willis and the movie "Armageddon."  Some are always looking for a reason to worry or be fearful- almost like wanting to go to a horror movie.  Some are hardened so that even if they knew an asteroid were heading dead-on to earth they wouldn't blink an eye.  This day's particular "close" call is really not anything to worry about.  We do not need to be Chicken Littles running around shouting, "The sky is falling!"    It could be a reminder of this prophecy above however.  There are real prophecies about this, that should give us pause.  The world will not go on as it has forever.  Life ends for everyone at some point.  For those who believe, this is not even a threat to the end of eternal life.  Our real task is not to worry or be fearful of our eventual end, but to grow in our trust in the One who holds all life in His hands.

Prayer: My present and future are in your hands.  My confidence and security is not in this earth, but in you.
