The UN is drafting a treaty that will determine how to deal with thousands of asteroids that could hit the Earth

The Association of Space Explorers, a professional body of Astronauts and Cosmonauts, have put together a document for the UN which is a draft treaty to determine what would have to be done if a giant asteroid was on a collision course with the Earth.

The document would set out global policies including who should be in charge of plans to deflect any object, and at the moment NASA is monitoring some 127 near Earth objects that have a possibility of hitting the Earth. The National Space Agency estimates that there are about 20,000 potential threatening asteroids and out of these thousands there will be without question many that might hit the Earth with enough speed to cause possible major damage.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The potential for thousands of asteroids hitting the Earth might sound like science fiction, but in truth, it is a page out of Bible prophecy.

There is concern at the UN as to how to handle the danger of a giant asteroid hitting the Earth and causing a real catastrophe. Astronauts and Cosmonauts, all members of the Association of Space Explorers, are helping to draft the document to handle the danger of asteroids hitting the Earth. At first, you might have thought I was speaking of some type of science fiction scenario, but the truth is, this is a page out of Bible prophecy.

In the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation, the writer, the Apostle John, wrote of coming judgments that will affect the Earth. Revelation 8:7 speaks of objects from outer space that will destroy the trees and burn up the grass. Revelation 8:8 reveals the account of a great mountain, possibly a giant asteroid, that will turn the sea to blood, kill one-third of the fish in the sea, and destroy one-third of the ships on the oceans at that time. As you continue to read through the book, Revelation 16:1-11 gives more such judgments that will come upon the Earth.

The UN's concern for how to handle potentially dangerous asteroids is indeed a page out of Bible prophecy.
