BREAKING NEWS! Mysterious planet claimed to be heading toward us!
“There will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars” (Luke 21:25)
Another planet is now claimed to be in our solar system. Further claims are:
- In is on an elliptical orbit taking it into deep space and back only every 3,630 years.
- It is larger than the planet Pluto.
- It will be visible to the naked eye in the fall of 2011.
- It will arrive nearest us in 2012. Its proximity may bring destruction. Based on its orbit, the last time it visited us was about the same time as the great Minoan eruption of Thera, one of the largest volcanic events on earth in recorded history.
Most people are so absorbed by the daily demands of living that they are oblivious to the fact that they have an extremely fragile existence on a tiny dot of a planet, in a tiny dot of a solar system, in a tiny dot of one galaxy of more than 100 billion known galaxies in a universe which, some say, is at least 14 billion years old.
Our little corner of the universe seems well-ordered, totally predictable, and safe. Uniformitarianism tells us that will never change. But the Bible tells us it will change.
In fact, be prepared for possible major change, and very soon! Let me explain.
Several years ago I began to read about a newly discovered planet in our solar system, in an elliptical orbit that takes it way out into deep space, then after about 3,630 years brings it back into our solar system again, near the earth, with possible calamitous effects. For the lack of a better name, they called it “Planet X.” It is also called “Nibiru,” and other names.
The idea is so bizarre that I tended to dismiss it. Then I kept reading more, and the more I read the more credible it seemed. I am still not sure about the subject, but I pass along to you this heads up of minimal information so you will at least have some insights and not be caught of guard as it may appear more and more in the news in the months ahead.
According to researcher Pastor F.M. Riley, Planet X was discovered and photographed in 1981 by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s (JPL’s) deep space Infrared Electronic Telescope. Astronomers and scientists working on the project were so elated with their discovery that they released the news of its discovery to the public news media. The story of its discovery was published in the New York Times and the Washington Post in 1981, then picked up by other newspapers and carried all over the world. (This answers the questions of skeptics who say, “If this is real, why hasn’t someone seen it?” Someone has.)
Pastor Riley recently issued a comprehensive update on the subject, summarizing his findings and conclusions. His essay is posted at http://choicesforliving.com/planetx.htm.
When is Planet X coming?Pastor Riley says:
Additional information can be found at:
- Now nearly three years ago  reliable “leaks” revealed that Planet X would show up on really good telescopes [expensive] by the Spring of 2010. Did it happen? It sure did! I have been receiving reports on its approach ever since last Spring. Planet X is still far out in space, but it can now be seen by those who have the proper telescopes and know where to look.
- But just how far out in space is it? The latest “leaks” report that it will show up to the naked eye as a tiny dot in the sky, appearing like a very faint star, by April of this year . It can then be easily seen if one has good eyesight or a powerful pair of binoculars and knows where to look. It will then from night to night gradually appear larger and brighter in the night sky over the next several months, becoming easily visible to the naked eye in the night sky by October of this year ….
- Planet X will continue to appear larger and brighter in the night sky until it will take on the appearance of a “second moon” in the sky at night. As it comes closer and closer the entire earth will begin to shake, earthquakes will increase all over the earth, massive volcanic eruptions will occur and increase with many new volcanoes coming into existence, tsunamis will become much more frequent, and yes, the earth will literally and actually be bombarded with large and small rocks and asteroids from out of space.
You can get more than 25 million results by googling “Planet X”, but be careful. Some sites may be wacko conspiracy sites and some may be your typical cynics who choose not to believe anything but criticize everything. Neither are trustworthy. Pray for discernment.
Many believe this is part of the end-of-the-age scenario described by Jesus when He said, “There will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars” (Luke 21:25). With the many other signs, that is certainly possible. Regardless, it is always important to place your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and trust Him with your life in this world and the next.
A believer resting in Christ can always say:
God is our refuge and strength,God bless you,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear, even if earthquakes come
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
