Scriptures

Matthew 24:29-30 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:29)

Rev:8:10-11 “Then the third angel sounded; And a great star fell from Heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell upon a third of the rivers and on the springs of water,

“and the name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became as worm-wood; and many men died from the water because it was made bitter”. (Rev:8:10-11)

Ezekiel 32:7 “And when I extinguish you, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud And the moon will not give its light.

Joel 2:10 Before them the earth quakes, The heavens tremble, The sun and the moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness.

Falling stars are either comets, asteroids, meteors, or dying stars which send out gamma bursts. It could be something artificial, that appears in the sky, like a nuclear warhead, but the scripture does not say this. The object originates in the sky and falls downward. It does not say it shoots up into the air, and then falls down. In context, this “star” is mentioned along with the sun and moon, which would confirm it is a natural object.

There has been no strong scientific data yet indicating a definite impact of any significance as of this date for the near future.

NASA link for “near earth object” program data:

http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/risk/

There are objects that come near the earth all the time, but either the object does not hit, or it is burned up in the atmosphere, and if whatever might be left hits the earth, it does not cause significant damage.

Examples:

Asteroids

http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/space/09/02/asteroid.reut/index.html

Asteroid “2003 QQ47” will be closely monitored over the next two months, but — the chances of a catastrophic collision are just one in 909,000. Its potential strike date is March 21, 2014, but astronomers say that any risk of impact is likely to decrease as further data is gathered. On impact, it could have the effect of 20 million Hiroshima atomic bombs, a spokesman for the British government’s Near Earth Object Information Centre told BBC radio.

http://space.newscientist.com/article/dn9095-big-new-asteroid-has-slim-chance-of-hitting-earth.html

Update 5 May 2006: The newly discovered asteroid 2006 HZ51 has now been removed from NASA-JPL’s list of potentially hazardous objects. The Earth is now safe from that particular threat, which was never anything more than a long-shot with odds of only one in six million.

Meteors

http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/snc/

These have been from 10-18,000 grams (0-39 lbs) in weight so far. This would hardly cause a global disaster.

Gamma Ray Bursts.

http://imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/science/know_l1/bursts.html

Gamma-ray bursts are short-lived bursts of gamma-ray photons, the most energetic form of light. At least some of them are associated with a special type of supernovae, the explosions marking the deaths of especially massive stars.

Lasting anywhere from a few milliseconds to several minutes, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) shine hundreds of times brighter than a typical supernova and about a million trillion times as bright as the Sun, making them briefly the brightest source of cosmic gamma-ray photons in the observable Universe. GRBs are detected roughly once per day from wholly random directions of the sky.

http://209.85.165.104/search?q=cache:rpEc43J0JwcJ:www.nasca.org.uk/gamma/gamma.html+gamma+ray+burst+disaster&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=5&gl=us

Scientists have now speculated that Gamma Ray Bursts may be associated with black holes capable of releasing a fireball of energy into a high pressure jet that in turn creates the shock waves that lead to the formation of Gamma Rays.

The very nature of GRBs mean that an explosion at even several thousand light years distance could prove deadly to all life on Earth.

http://www.nature.com/news/2008/080321/full/news.2008.687.html

Gamma-ray bursts are high-energy explosions seen as shockwaves jet out from a massive dying star

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/gamma/milkyway.html

What if such a burst occurred somewhere within our own galaxy, say only thousands of light-years away?

Dr. Jerry Bonnell is an astrophysicist at Goddard Space Flight Center’s Laboratory for High-Energy Astrophysics in Greenbelt, Maryland (response) (http://apod.gsfc.nasa.gov):

Regardless of the mechanism producing the burst, the intense flux of gamma rays would likely be stopped in the lower stratosphere by collisions with atmospheric nitrogen molecules. The molecules would break up and reform as nitric oxide and related compounds. (Hanging over cities today, nitric oxides are the brownish constituents of smog; they are also catalysts for the destruction of ozone.) Uncheerful brown skies and stratospheric ozone destruction would initially affect only the hemisphere facing the gamma-ray burst, but winds would soon spread the destruction worldwide.

How much ozone would be destroyed? Thorsett estimated that if the burster were located near the center of our galaxy, some 30,000 light-years away, the ozone depletion would be a few percent, comparable to that produced by natural disasters like large volcanic eruptions, very intense solar flares.

If the burster were closer, say less than 3,000 light-years away, the gamma-ray flux received in a few tens of seconds could wipe out the entire ozone layer for years to come.

At the very least, the drastic increase in solar ultraviolet radiation reaching Earth’s surface would cause

severe skin cancers. For humans and other animals, slow starvation would likely result, as the harmful ultraviolet flux inhibited plant growth and damaged and altered ecosystems supporting the food chain.

** The 1st and 4th angels in Revelation 16 pour out judgment on the earth . The results are

1. a grievous sore (skin cancer?) upon the men which had the mark of the beast (verse 2), and

2. men scorched men with fire and heat from the sun, (due to destruction of the ozone layer?) (verses 8-9)

As in a nuclear winter, the nitric oxides darkening our skies could also cause acid rains and significant cooling of the Earth’s surface. Such pollutants would take decades to settle out of the stratosphere.

But that’s not all. In addition to the chemical changes in the atmosphere, the nuclear interactions induced by the high-energy gamma rays would rapidly produce huge quantities of radioactive nucleids, such as carbon-14, which has a half-life of 5,700 years. Of course, winds would distribute this fallout worldwide.

Depending on what the mechanism for producing a gamma-ray burst actually is, a nearby burst could wreak even more havoc.

Again, we have to take a “wait and see what happens” approach to interpretation. If a GRB were to occur close to earth, there is nothing we can do about it anyhow.

  2. Silly Christian.

  3. To super Jesus,

    And your point is? So if Christians are silly, what makes us silly?

  4. have you guys heard about the Mayan calender and the summerian prophecy?
    they believe that at the end of the world there is gonna be a star that is gonna destroy the earth. its called nibiru and that the gods live there. the mayans talk about a star that would destroy the earth in 2012. NASA says that there is a star about the size of he earth that is gonna pass by 2012 really close. maybe that is what the Bible means.

    God Bless every one! :)

  5. Hi Gabriel

    The bible has an interesting matching prediction to the Mayan prediction. It mentions a star called Wormwood, which crashes into the earth, and causes the water to become bitter, and man cannot drink the water because it is bitter. 1/3 of mankind die of thirst.
    Maybe one prediction is a confirmation of the other one.

  6. Hi, you do know that by the bible saying “Stars will fall” etc.. it doesn’t mean it’a all literal. it’s symbolic.
    Let me know if you would like more detail

  7. Hi Kelly

    I can see how there can be symbolic interpretations of this, and physical ones.

    I presented it from a physical, scientific standpoint, but the other view is welcome as well. (I am a scientist, so I went in that direction :) )

  8. I recently had a dream about this… I was driving in my minivan with my husband and all of the sudden I saw a single star falling down to the earth out of the sky…I pointed it out to my husband and then all of a sudden there was a whole ton of stars (or asteroids?) falling down to earth out of the sky…Whilst looking upon this, I heard that scripture being read to me that says “There will be signs in the sky…” I was like “wow…we need to take cover” to my husband, although i was abnormally calm…
    (which I find rings true because since coming closer to Jesus and Father God, I am able to stay calm when everything around me is going crazy)

    Anyhow, I took this dream to mean that God was showing me these things are all about to happen VERY soon…

    In Jesus Love, Catrina

  9. Hi Catrina

    You dream, and your reaction,is a wonderful sign of the times. As things are getting more evil, the believers are becoming more at peace.

    Joel 2:28
    And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
    (of course, women can have dreams and visions too :) )

  12. Hi Najjo,

    That is fine. As far as I know, this picture is public property. As long as you do not use it to make money, I think you are ok using it.

  13. Hi Marianne,

    I too would like to use the graphic above for presentation purposes. However, the presentation will be shown to a paying audience and may be filmed and sold in the future.

    Are you sure it is public property and if not, can you direct me to where you obtained it?

    Thanks,

    Virgil

  14. Hi Virgil,

    Beautiful picture, isn’t it?

    I will have to search it out and get back to you. I find pictures by going to google search, and putting in key words. Most likely, I put in signs, stars, end times, moon for this…..I can go back and search, but you can also try, and see if you can bring it up also.

    I try to avoid copyrighted pictures, but sometimes I slip. I have 2 pictures that I have to put an acknowledgment with it, because it was obvious when I went to the site, the pictures were for sale.

    let me try…and you try too. I will get back to you.

  15. I woke up yesterday morning praying for forgiveness. I was praying while asleep because I dreamt of what appeared to be the apocalypse. In the dream it was 8 p.m. and I clocked out from my work and walked out of my building which had many floors. I viewed the sky and saw a cluster of red stars forming. The stars became brighter and turned into flames. Flames were across the night sky and these balls of fire, commets or meteors came crashing down a few buildings away from where I stood. Myself and my co-workers ran to the top of our building that was the parking garage. As I looked down, I could hear the screams of horror from the people suffering down below. I then looked up at the sky and the same pattern of cluster of red stars and changing to flames appeared directly above us. At this time, in a blink of an eye, Angels appeared all around us. There were several, male and female, they smiled at us and the male angel standing directly in front of me, his hair was blond with some curls, he wore a red sash, a thick belt and skirt holding what appears a
    staff or a rod. A female angel next to him is smiling with him. All the angels spoke at the same time, “Don’t be afraid, but be happy for you have been chosen. Now is your time to pray to God to be forgiven.” I woke up praying and repenting my heart out! I had a similiar dream in December. The stars began to show shapes and were sending messages of God’s return. In the same dream major fire destruction from astroids completely abolished the lands. Just wanted to post and share this with everyone. I truly believe this was a spiritual message.

    • Thanks JK, for your dream. I think it has a worthy message.

    • Hi,

      The same scenario played off in a vision before my eyes as I was lying down on my bed one afternoon, talking to the Lord. It was as if all the stars were shooting from high in the skies down to the earth. Radiations, balls of fire, explosions as it hit the surface on earth, screaming and chaos . . . What I won’t forget was the overwhelming sound! And I asked the Lord: “Who will ever withstand this horrific attack?” It was almost unbearable visionalizing it for a few moments, let alone experiencing it for an hour or days to come.

    • Scripture tells us that Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:17(KJV)
      “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:”
      Mark 13:25(KJV)
      “And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.”

  16. Interesting that I stumbled on this site while looking for earthquake info. I had a very vivid dream the other night (really early morning) in which I was with friends outside during a very dark night observing all the stars either falling or moving rapidly across the sky (almost together). I felt calm like the poster above. Next I was above the earth looking down at what I believed to be South East Asia (maybe New Guinea) with “others” (never saw them, just felt their presence) and observing the land mass in upheaval. Afterwards, I descended into the above area and found myself with a few orientals and others in some sort of old religious stone building, just huddling together. I sensed that war was waging. Then we walked out into the black night and became excited that the dark dust clouds were parting and revealed the stars again.
    Sounds wacky but I was calm throughout like you. Just wanted to share my dream.

  17. hi Marianne,
    I’ve just read this article …

    http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news165.html

    I suppose The Lord has HIS own weaponry …
    It somehow brings a smile to my face.

  18. In case you hadn’t heard yet, NASA predicts that there is a 1-in-38 chance that a near-earth asteroid now named “Apophis” will impact the earth in 2029. It will at least be close enough to take out a number of satellites now in orbit and should be visible as it passes. It will return 6 years later and there is no prediction to how close it will come then. This could be Wormwood.

  19. HI,
    Stars/meteorites etc. will fall literally……for God says He will make NEW HEAVENS and a new Earth. If the earth-lands are sliding back to as it was in Gen.1:9-10 (like Pangea) or back to Eden-ic structure. (sometimes we call the demise of Eden as the ‘FALL’…….

  20. this is the second coming of christ ..the artificial christ,the false christ,the anti christ false kingdom god’s judgement on mankind revelation 6 ,14,13 etc etc… this is the
    LEE= LIFE EXECUTION EVENT

  21. Hi. I heard a preacher talking about the falling stars. They could be orbiting satellites. There are so many of them in the sky and they do appear as stars at night.

    • It seems that if it was first visible, and then disappeared, it is because it moved away from us, not toward us. If it was approaching us, it would be bigger and even more visible.

      All the specs on the screen are not distinguishable from the others.

      Hard to say what anything is.

  32. Here is another significant wonder … Land under the ocean rising 13 ft./day Australia. hmmmmm?

    This is very disturbing. More and more things are happening that really shouldn’t. Is the 2012 events we are waiting for, starting already? The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has a Tsunami station in event mode activated for Station 55023 – STB Coral Sea located at 14.803 S 153.585 E (14°48’9″ S 153°35’6″ E). The tsunami station has been in event mode since the large quakes occurred in the area for several days now. This is triggered by the buoys’ anomalies of water column height above the sea floor. If you do a data search for 2010 March 20th to 2010 April 13th you get this- Over 100 meters or 328 feet less distance from buoy to sea floor in 24 days! That’s 13 feet per day since the quakes.

  34. “What has struck me so far about this year are not so much the overall number of meteors people have seen, but the number of reported fireball meteors,” said SPACE.com’s skywatching columnist, Joe Rao. “It seems there have been more such sightings than usual this year.

  35. “The Leonid meteor shower of 2010 is peaking this week and the best time to see the sky show is now.

    The annual Leonids should be at their best through Nov. 18, according to skywatching experts. Avid meteor gazers graced with clear skies may see between 15 and 20 meteors per hour.

    This sky map shows where to look to see “shooting stars” from the Leonids this week. The best time to try to see the Leonids are in the last two or three hours before sunrise, when the moon has set.”

  39. Signs on Mars…what do you think?

  40. Scheduled visits? UFOs – Satan’s army in the sky.

    Look at times 2:44 to 3:52. The UFOs turn red in the sky. If a whole group of them gathered at night in front of the moon, the moon would appear “red.” Also, the falling UFOs look like fiery hail. A new interpretation to think about.

  41. In the link

    http://www.bible-codes.org/quake-japan.htm

    there is a description about Japanese earthquake and how it is connected to coming judgments.
    A lot has been talked recently about comet Elenin. The link shows also a picture of this comet approaching the Lion of Judah (Leo) which looks like the Lion is about to blow his heavenly trumpet.

  42. Rick Larson finds the star of bethelehem-a must see!!!!

  43. sorry, this is the video :)

  44. Hello,

    Hale Bopp comet 1997 was an interesting case. If we count 2300 evenings (west) and mornings (east) from the death of Alexander the Great 324 BC one day per year we get evenings (western side of globe years, sunset) 324 BC – 1975 AD. And then we count 2300 mornings (Eastern side of globe years, sunrise) we get something like 1975 AD – 4275 AD.

    2300 evenings (sunset, West) and 2300 mornings (sunrise, East).

    Hale Bopp comet will come back about 4380 AD. It is like it would be a sign for the end of 2300 evening and morning period. (Book of Daniel).

    It was first comet with the third kind of cloud; Natrium ione cloud.

    “and the name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became as worm-wood; and many men died from the water because it was made bitter”. (Rev:8:10-11)

    I have considered if this word “bitter” could be something like salty.
    Sweet is its opposite term; and opposite to sweet is often salty. Natrium is one part of salt.

    Here is one other interesting Hubble Space Telescope finding:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P/2010_A2

    Greetings,

  45. Hello,

    Here are two more interesting events.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/99942_Apophis

    In the Book of Daniel the one horn of 4th beast governs: an Age, two ages and half age. One age is 490 years. It makes 1715 years all along. If that eleventh horn of 4th beast was Constantinus Great 313 AD then it will be about 2028 AD when (1715 years) when Kingom of God replaces his government. (Daniel 7:23-28).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%2829075%29_1950_DA

    If Nebucadnessar was the Son of man and if he is put aside for seven Ages (3430 years) starting about 580 BC-600 BC and will have his kingdom back again after 3430 years then he (Son of man) will be back about 2880 AD. (Daniel 4:21-34).

    It seems like great catastrophes are at door every time when Kingdom of God replaces old governments with new. One thing we have to keep in mind is that Antichrist always comes first claiming I am God, I am kingdom of God, I am Son of man and so on….. We have to choose the truth and not to be betrayed by the great miracles Antichrist has power to make.

    One Age is 70X7 years is 490 years (Daniel 9:24).

    Blessings,

      I have no idea which 6 stars you are referring to.

      I cannot answer your question.

      It might be good to contact someone knowledgeable in astronomy near you about this.

  49. […] Signs in the stars before the Day of the Lord. | Heaven Awaits […]

  50. on 27th feb this yr 2014 i saw a star falling from the sky,, people have been looking around to see where it fall on the ground but there is no sign of it. though it had coused some earthqk. so am asking is this a sign of the day of the lord coming soon?
    am in kenya, in the great rift valley neat lake nakuru

    • dear philip

      falling stars, or meteors, have always fallen. but in the last days, this phenomenon will increase and the meteors will get bigger. and some will be big enough to cause earthquakes and floods…these are warning signs to repent of our sins before the world is destroyed.

      • Me, my husband and two friends became christians a few months ago. We have from the beginning strongly felt that there is little time left so we are telling everyone we know. Since then more and more young people have joined us. It happens so fast! It’s like they all hunger for Gods words. Amazing things have happend, we are so blessed to witness these miracles. But we have been seeing stars “falling” from the skies. One evening we saw 6 at the same time. They were moving slowly downwards, and suddenly they just dissapered. We dont know what it is, but we see them almost every evening when we are togheter. And in the last two weeks I`ve been seeing something else. Everytime im outside praying i will see this white, bright ligth moving fast above me. Its so near, and so bright! But after 3-4 seconds its gone. It looks very much alike the lights from the picture above. I sometimes feel I’ve gone completely insane, but we are seeing these things all of us..

        • maja

          Enjoy nature. it is cooperating with God in showing you signs of the last days. when it is time for the Lord’s return, all the stars will look like they are falling.

          Read Revelation 6, especially these verses:

          12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

          13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

          14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
