Greetings to all,
As many of you know, there is a celestial body approaching called “Elenin”, named after young Russian amateur astronomer who found it in Dec. 2010, Leonid Elenin. This object has been categorized as a ‘comet’ by NASA, but many are speculating that it might not be a comet, but a dwarf star.
Nobody is saying that it would collide with Earth, but its passage (due to its great mass, maybe bigger than Jupiter) would have a strong magnetic interference with Earth and could cause shift of the axis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and natural disasters either in close proximity to Earth or when aligned with Earth and other big celestial bodies.
PAST DATES connected to (COMET?) ELENIN (when it was still pretty far, between Mars and Jupiter):
Feb. 27, 2010 - Elenin, Sun, Earth Aligned - Chile’s earthquake ( 8.8 ) and 3 inches shift of Earth’s axis
Sept. 4, 2010 - Elenin, Sun, Earth Aligned - Christchurch first quake ( 7.2 )
Feb. 21, 2011 - Elenin, Jupiter and Earth close alignment - Christchurch second quake ( 6.3 ).
March 11-15 - Elenin, Sun and Earth Aligned - Japan’s Earthquake ( 9 ) and 10 inches shift of Earth’s axis (according to the BBC)
SIGNIFICANT upcoming DATES connected to (COMET?) ELENIN:
August 3 - Elenin crosses Earth’s orbit
Sept. 11 - Elenin closest to Sun - Tail visible from Earth and close to the Earth
Sept. 26, 27 - Earth, Elenin, Sun alignment - Possible earthquakes and more shift of the axis, meteor showers and partial eclipse
Oct. 17 - Elenin closest to Earth - possible earthquakes and another shift of the axis
Oct. 31 through Nov. 5 - Earth crosses Elenin’s orbit - Debris from the comet are everywhere...
Nov. 23 - Earth, Elenin, Sun aligned - Another possible shift of the axis and earthquake
Dec. 27, 28 2012 - Earth, Elenin, Sun align - smaller shift - earthquake
Jan. 2 2014 - Last significant alignment
It’s interesting to note that Sept. 29 2011 is Rosh Hoshanna, Feast of Trumpets.
I tried to make calculations to see if there is any correlation of those blocks of time in scripture (1260 days, 1290 days etc.) and I found the following (if these dates mean anything important, I don’t know):
From Oct.08 2011 (= Tishri 10, Yom Kippur) to March 20 2015 (= Nisan 1 in the evening, first day of Hebrew religious year) there are 1260 days (in inclusive reckoning)
Note: March 20th 2015 is Spring Equinox and there is a total solar eclipse on that day. - http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEplot/SEplot2001/SE2015Mar20T.GIF
This might be the day the Two Witnesses are executed.
From Oct.08 2011 (Yom Kippur) to Sept. 30 2018 (= Tishri 21, last day of the Feast of Tabernacles) there are 2550 days (1290 days after March 20, 2015), in inclusive reckoning.
If any relevant prophetic occurrence is to happen this year, our redemption might be very close.
As I have said before, I believe the correct Pentecost follows the Lunar Sabbath reckoning of time and would be on the 28 or 29th day of the 4th Hebrew month (“Tammuz”) and not the traditional 6th of Sivan (explanation here: http://creationcalendar.com/CalendarIssue/17-FeastOfWeeks.pdf ). In 2011, those days correspond to July 30-31, which is a few days before Elenin crosses the Earth’s orbit. I have explained the reasons for that in a few posts and don’t intend to initiate another thread on that. If you don’t agree, it’s fine.
Elenin might only be a harmless comet and nothing at all happens. There are so many conspiracy theories which are bogus. But what if a few of those assumptions are correct? What if huge disasters happen in the timeframe of August-October of 2011? Be it Elenin or solar flares or some kind of disaster in various places in the world, then the stage for a World Government would be set, which would trigger the 70th Week cited by Daniel.
I don’t remember having read anything in the Bible saying that the Rapture marks the beginning of the 70th Week. The Rapture might happen some days or even some weeks before the start of the 70th Week. Another reason for believing the Rapture is likely to occur near the beginning of the Tribulation is because 2 Thessalonians 2 says that the Antichrist cannot be revealed until a “restrainer” is “taken out of the way” (2 Thessalonians 2:6-7). I believe that restrainer is the Holy Spirit working through the Church. Thus, when the Church is removed, the Antichrist will be unleashed, and the Tribulation will begin.
The prophet Daniel indicates that the starting point of the Tribulation will be a “covenant with many” that the Antichrist will arrange for the period of “one seven”. Many interpret this saying that this covenant might be with Israel. But this is only an assumption. The Bible doesn’t say that specifically. It might well be that the many nations of the world (which could include Israel) accept the covenant with someone that promises to be the leader of the world after a catastrophe of some kind.
We don’t know if the passing of the Elenin object will have any dangerous effect on Earth and I think we should not be in any kind of panic because of that, but just trust our Lord and put our complete faith in Him (although it would be smart to have extra supply of bottled water, food and batteries for portable flashlights just in case there is any solar flare or a few days of delay between “the cry of the Bridegroom” and the catching away). And also, MOST importantly, an extra generous measure of the Holy Spirit with repentance, reconciliation, confession, adoration and walking with the Lord in our practical lives.
