"It’s coming, but what is it?"

Dear friends:
There is a mysterious object out in space heading our way, and it is supposed to be nearest the earth in the fall of 2011, or maybe 2012.
What is it?  What is it called?  Is it a danger?  Those are good questions. 
Some say it is a huge planet, and some say it is a small comet.  Various names given it are Planet X, Comet Elenin, dwarf star, Nibiru, Tysch, and Hercolubus.  Some say these are all names of the same thing, but others disagree.  The answer?  I don’t know.
Lately I have been scouring the Internet trying to find a consensus on this subject, but have been unable to do so.  Just google any or all of those six names.  Opinions vary widely.  It is all very confusing.
Some “expert” sites say there will be no effect on the earth.  This includes NASA, which says “Right now that comet (Elenin) looks kind of wimpy."  See NASA site at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.cfm?release=2011-135
Well, at least NASA acknowledges Elenin’s existence!  Some claim NASA has been involved in a cover-up here to prevent the public from panicking.  But maybe the Elenin acknowledgement is a cover for the potentially more threatening Planet X, described below.
One curious thing is that NASA has officially asked all its employees to prepare for a possible disaster.  See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBbSU5FAlIY.  Coincidence?  I don’t know.
On the other hand, some sites say that whatever it is will have such destructive effects on the earth that we should head for the hills and hide in a cave, that life will never be the same again, if we survive.  See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqV0StQbJQs&feature=youtube_gdata_player and

One credible writer on this subject is Pastor F. M. Riley, who began studying Planet X in 2001 and has written extensively on it.  In February 2011, he wrote:
“In previous articles I repeatedly pointed out that information on this subject was being deliberately kept from the public by the “insiders” that have known the truth about Planet X since 1983. I have also repeatedly pointed out that the time would come when the wicked “insiders” could not conceal Planet X any longer, and would be forced to admit that it is real.  THAT TIME HAS NOW COME!”
Riley goes on to say:
“Planet X was discovered and photographed in modern times by JPL’s deep space Infrared Electronic Telescope.  The year was 1981.  At that time the 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
He adds:
“This planet will be affected terribly by the passing of Planet X, just as the records of the ancient Sumerians record the terrible destruction and death that occurred the last time Planet X came some 3,600 plus years ago.  When Planet X comes through the solar system and flies past the earth the whole earth will shake.  Compare Haggai 2:21, Hebrews 12:26-27, and Isaiah 2:12-22. There will be great earthquakes, volcanoes all over the earth will erupt, terrible tsunamis will sweep over whole continents, mountain chains will fall and others will rise, some land areas will sink beneath the oceans and some land presently beneath the seas will be raised above the waters.  There will be weird and even instant climate changes, causing strange and terrible storms to ravage the earth with terrible winds, floods, freezing temperatures in some areas, and blistering heat in others.  MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WILL DIE!  The infrastructure of every nation on earth will be destroyed.   There will be massive death and destruction all over the earth, and the world as we have known it in the past will cease to exist.”
Pastor Riley concludes: “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 [2011].  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 [2011].  Planet X… will come flying through the solar system and ultimately past the earth beginning in late 2012.”

So what do we have here?  A wimpy comet Elenin or a super-destructive Planet X?
If the latter is correct, I do not plan on any preparation because I believe Jesus will come and rapture His people away, just in time. 
It is interesting that this is happening in a window of time believed by many to be a major rapture window, and at a time when the Middle East is about to go nuclear.  African prophet Dr. David Owuor, says the Lord clearly spoke to him, saying, "Time is up.  Get ready now!"  A minister friend reported that the Lord actually spoke to his cousin, saying “The last day approaches.”
If you do not believe in the rapture, you had better prepare, because you may be about to enter into the Tribulation you have been believing for!
If you do believe in the rapture, I hope to see you soon!
Good bless you,
