In the end times, the skies will be filled with portents and terrors. Massive objects will fall from the heavens and wreak destruction on the Earth.
Now, one rabbi says that may not be that far away at all.
The asteroid Apophis, named after an Egyptian god of chaos, is poised to make a near miss of Earth on April 13, 2029.
Rabbi Yosef Berger, of King David’s tomb on Mount Zion, said the surge of concern over celestial events, particularly heavenly objects that could hit Earth, is a sign of the imminent coming of the Messiah.
Quoting Numbers 24:17, Rabbi Berger claimed the Bible speaks of a star that will accompany the Messiah, an interpretation expanded upon in the writings of Maimonides and in the Zohar, the foundational work of Kabbalah.
While Christians obviously believe Messiah has already come and heavenly signs would herald his return, some experts argue the rabbi is fundamentally right about how the last days will be marked by dangerous astronomical events.

This asteroid is interesting for two reasons. First the name APOPHIS, named after an Egyptian god of chaos, and secondly it will be at its closest to earth during the Day of The Lords wrath. The two witnesses will be on the scene and God’s people will be in the place of safety. That is of course if our prediction of 2025-2029 (1335 days) proves to be right. This asteroid does give more credence to that prediction.
It certainly will be a time of great chaos in the earth as the seventh vial is poured out.
“And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, it is done.
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightening’s; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great… And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: (approximately 112 1bs) and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great,” Rev 16:17-21
It will take a lot to make mankind repent of the sin towards God, but thankfully, that repentance, for most people will come.
