Weather changes are also a certainty. These changes will spell tragedy for countless people as the most devastating famine ever grips the earth. Storms that are off the charts and break all records will spread out as the heat from the asteroid impact compresses the air, changes currents, and warms parts of the globe to levels they have never experienced. *Isaiah 28:2- Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand. The very seasons and thus the growing cycle for crops will be disrupted only to be followed by a severe drought from residual ocean heat. The sheer panic will be indescribable. The ongoing violence would only be magnified. The famine induced will be staggering, threatening the survival of much of the planet. *Revelation 6:8- And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. The delicate balance of life on Earth and its ability to recover will be severely tested. Once the initial darkness subsides, the plants will be affected even worse. The prolonged darkness will cause photosynthesis to stop. When the sunlight reappears, much plant life will appear to be “burned up” like it says in *Revelation 8:7- The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. We have all seen this happen when something is left lying on the grass for a time, then removed. One third of the trees and grasses will succumb. *Revelation 8:8 & 9- …the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; With a raised ocean temperature and the stagnation of the currents from the asteroid, conditions will be right for an enormous bloom of Red Tide, which is rust colored algae that depletes oxygen from the water, killing any marine life in its sterile wake. Therefore it says the sea will be turned to blood, meaning red, and a third of its creatures will die. Yet another striking parallel when comparing elements of Revelation to the Exodus! *Revelation 8:10 & 11- And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. Beyond all this, the fluids from the rotting vegetation will seep into and pollute the groundwater. Entire aquifers may be affected, making it undrinkable. Iron oxide fallout would also have to be what plays a part in this too. Another part of this simply has to do with the energized cloud above having become a giant electromagnet that “pulls” iron from the ground to water sources up to the surface. This can be seen without the need for enhanced magnetism already in various places where iron is closer to the surface which certain bacteria thrive on, contributing to the bitter toxicity. The wormwood water will create a staggering crisis and take its toll. These are absolutely unparalleled ecological disasters!
Iron in surface water changes its appearance to reddish. Certain microbes flourish on it, enhancing a toxic effect.
For generations, the creatures of *Revelation 9 were considered by many to be just too impossible to be real and perhaps therefore a vision of demons. *Revelation 9:3- And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. But with the known advances in genetic engineering, the blending of species to create such a terrifying creature as a bio weapon is no longer thought to be out of reach. This could even be the result of a process that will be described below regarding the potential already in the DNA of a species’ genes. Described as being real enough to sting people and cause severe pain, they may be released due to the outcomes of the asteroid impact, perhaps even “accidentally.” How do these creatures know to sting only those with the mark? Scientists studying sharks recently demonstrated that they have the ability to sense the magnetic field of their prey. This allows them to detect creatures hiding under the sand that they cannot even see or smell. It was admitted that the number of species with this built-in ability is unknown. These scorpion-like locusts could unknowingly be made with this same ability. Those who take the mark will alter their magnetic field. To the locusts, this unnatural magnetic field is what could trigger a signal to attack!
Altering genetic material likely explains the locust-like creatures.
Another striking claim in Revelation is that 1/3 of the day and 1/3 of the night will be taken away. *Revelation 8:12- And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. No one has ever been able to explain this. So how can it be? The cloud created by the asteroid impact will be ejected right out into space. By beginning to orbit, especially in the opposite direction of the Earth’s rotation, the cloud will blacken the sky when between the Earth and the Sun while passing on the day side of the planet. When on the night side, it will reflect more light than the moon. This will make it almost as bright as daytime. A similar experience was reported right after the Tunguska Comet explosion over remote Siberia in 1908. Afterward, it was bright enough in England to take a picture at midnight, although it wasn’t understood why until many years later. This same phenomenon that took place on a much smaller scale at that time is now thought to be responsible. This would be considered by scientists to be a result of the cloud being energized to glow like the auroras, only with a greater intensity.
There is no doubt that the impact will be felt worldwide. Jesus said there will be earthquakes. *Matthew 24:7- For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. *Mark 13:8- Restates same as the above reference. *Luke 21:11- And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven… and also *Isaiah 13:6-13- Wail, for the day of the LORD is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travails: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. And in *Isaiah 29:6- Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire. Essentially, in every place where there is a fault line of any size there will be movement. Some of the fissures created by the asteroid will not only penetrate the earth’s crust but go beyond the mantle to some of the hotter parts of the interior of the planet. This will allow the release of magma or lava from beneath to fulfill the prophecy in 2 Peter 3:10- But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. To an ancient man seeing this in a vision, who knew nothing of uranium, THIS would be the elements melted in fervent heat that he and his peers would understand. The activation of many long dormant volcanoes explains the “columns of fire and pillars of smoke” we read of elsewhere. *Joel 2:30- And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The Lord has no need for the puny power of man in his nuclear arsenal to accomplish His purposes. We’ve seen the awesome force of volcanoes; their power dwarfs any nuclear explosion thousands of times over.
The “elements” (of the Earth) melted with intense heat.
Volcanic activity seen as “columns of fire” and “pillars of smoke”.
The kingdom of the beast is described as being plunged into darkness. *Revelation 16:10- And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; With the auroral activity above, there is little questioning as to whether a power grid can be overloaded by its energy. It would not be the first time this happened. In March 1989, a solar storm sent much of Quebec, Canada into a virtually complete power outage, affecting millions. In this case there will be at least a continental blackout! Ironically, in a place where people couldn’t buy or sell without the mark, the tables will be turned. The tech reliant system will crash, lose its data, and the followers of the beast won’t buy or sell either!
