Apocalypse & Judgement in The Book of Revelation
Extravogant symbolistic visions of the apocalyptic second coming
Revelation is the last book of the new testement, consisting of 22 chapters. The book contains an account of apocalyptic visions documented by John in the form of a letter.
It has become the main area of our study because it is the only book within the Bible that focuses souly on the apocalyptic second coming of Christ.
So, lets take a look at what is said...
John's visions provide us with great detail of the scale of the coming apocalypse, however, the extent to which these passages are to be taken literally has been widely debated with many believing the imagery throughout the book is mostly symbolistic.
Chapter 8 Verse 7 is where the physical destruction of the planet Earth begins with the description of "hail and fire" being "thrown to the Earth".
If taken on face value, this appears to be some form of meteor shower, causing widespread fires upon the earth with disasterous effect.
Verse 8 proceeds to describe again what would appear to be the impact of a meteor or a large piece of debris from a comet planet passing / approaching
A meteor shower of this type, could be caused by an imminent collision with a comet planet which would be supportive of some theorists beliefs that the 4000 year orbit of the planet Nibiru is due to pass, or collide with us in 2012.
Is it possible that the bible could be describing the effects of NASA firing a satellite missile upon an approaching or passing comet planet, much like they did in 2005?
Taken literally, chapter 8 verses 10 and 11 appear to continue the comet planet collision apocalypse imagery, but is it possible that "Wormwood" could actually refer to some form of intercontinental ballistic nuclear missile.
Some theorists believe that the oncoming apocalypse will spark mass anarchy, resulting in a third world war. Nostradamus and the book of Matthew both make reference to war.
