The Sky is Falling
Prophecy - Signs
Saturday, February 23, 2013
J.L. Robb

I guess most of us remember that 'Chicken Little' story.  Chicken Little is minding his own business when a seed falls from a tree and lands on his tail.  Chickens aren’t the brightest stars in the sky, and thus a rumor was born.  Apparently this had never happened before in the history of Chicken Little; so the chicken thought the world was ending because the sky was obviously falling on his tail.

What is it with bird tails?  My Mom, rest her kind soul, used to tell me when I was a kid, “Catch a bird and put salt on its tail, and it can’t fly away.”  Of course this same lady used to tell me when we played “cow poker” that Florida cows only had three legs.

Anyway, last week I saw a bird on my screened in porch and saw my opportunity.  I ran to the kitchen, grabbed a salt shaker and returned for the conquest.  Did you know that birds can bite??

I caught that bird, took it out on the patio and sprinkled salt on its tail, a LOT of salt.  Then I sat that cute little bird on the patio to play with my two cats, and it flew away in a flash.  So don’t waste your time on that one.  Thanks Mom.

As Chicken Little ran to tell the king the news, he started running into friends and convincing them that the sky was falling.  They finally ran into the local fox, Foxy Loxy.  The ending went something like this:

“So Foxy Loxy led Chicken Little, Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky, Goosey Loosey, and Turkey Lurkey across a field and through the woods.  He led them straight to his den, and they never saw the king to tell him that the sky is falling.”

I’m sure Foxy Loxy’s dinner was excellent.

Unfortunately for us, not just us in the U.S. but us in the whole world, there does seem to be a lot of things falling out of the sky and assaulting our planet. Planets in the whole scheme of things are pretty fragile, based on what might bump into it at 30,000 miles per hour. Take the following scenario in Russia:

Just after 7:00 AM, people who lived in central Siberia saw a bright, bluish light falling from the sky, a light described by many as “too bright to look at.”  The early morning darkness was suddenly brighter than noon on a sunny day.  That was followed a few minutes later by a huge, thunderous explosion, followed by even more booms during the next moments.  A man sitting on the porch of a trading post was suddenly blown off the porch, the doors were blown off and a strong, hot wind followed.  The wind was so hot the man thought his clothes were on fire.  Fortunately, this man was 40 miles from ground zero, where a 100-150 foot asteroid exploded several miles above a place called Tunguska.  The year was 1908, a cloudless June 30th morning.

The Bible talks about strange things that will occur in the sky, during the “last days.” Last days is pretty descriptive and needs no explanation. This is what Jesus said 2,000 years ago while talking to his apostles.

“… there will be great earthquakes, there will be epidemics and famines in various places, and there will be fearful sights and great signs from Heaven.” (Italics added) - Luke 21:11 Complete Jewish Bible

“There will appear signs in the sun, moon and stars; and on earth, nations will be in anxiety and bewilderment at the sound and surge of the sea, as people faint with fear at the prospect of what is overtaking the world; for the powers in heaven will be shaken." - Luke 21:25,26 Complete Jewish Bible

I can only imagine what the Russian people thought last week when an early workday morning suddenly became brighter than the sun because of a giant fireball streaming almost horizontally across the sky.  To the people who saw this “once in a lifetime” event, it probably was a sign in the sky.  I am sure it was scary.

Astronomers claim to see a fireball close to Earth like the one in Russia is a “once in a lifetime event.”  Unfortunately for we the little people, a “near” once-in-a-lifetime event happened again the next day over San Francisco, and the next day over Miami.  Fortunately they crashed somewhere or burned up before causing damage.

Early estimates of the Russian meteor strike last week had the meteor weighing “10 tons” and being the size of a standard SUV.  Not so!  Turns out they were off a bit and instead of being 20 feet in diameter, it was 49 feet.  Instead of weighing “10 tons,” the estimates now range from 7,000 tons to 10,000 tons.  That is a big rock to be falling out of the sky on us Earthlings.

“The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water…” Revelation 8:10 NIV

The really scary part is, no one knew it was coming!!  Not a clue.  The world’s military tracking systems didn’t see it coming, amateur astronomers didn’t see it coming, nada.  More than 4,000 buildings were damaged or destroyed; and at least 1,000 people injured, as reported so far.  The meteor did not explode over the small city and instead exploded over the mountains.

The 1908 Tunguska Event, though two to three times larger in magnitude, was barely reported at the time because the population was so sparse.  A Russian expedition finally made it to the site in 1927, looking for the crater that had to be.  It wasn’t.  Turns out the Tunguska meteor exploded several miles above the earth and the downward part of the blast destroyed 80,000,000 trees and completely flattened an area of 800-1,000 square miles.  Can you imagine?

New York City is 468 square miles.  Had a Tunguska Event happened over Manhattan, there would be no buildings standing.  It would be 9/11 to the nth degree, caused not by terrorists but by Mother Nature.

The U.S. government is tracking about 10,000 near-Earth objects (NEO) that are more than one kilometer in diameter, or about 3,000 feet.  No one knows how many smaller objects like Tunguska or the Ural Mountains meteor of last week, exist; but it’s a lot.

NASA hasn’t paid enough attention nor have other world governments to the possible tragedy that could result when a catastrophic event happens.  Sixty-five million years ago, according to scientists, a 6-mile wide asteroid or comet hit Earth close to the Gulf of Mexico.  We haven’t seen a dinosaur since.

Last year we sent a $ 2,500,000,000.00 spacecraft to Mars to look for… something.  Last week it drilled a hole two and a half inches deep, and guess what?  There’s gray stuff under all the red stuff.  That’s a billion dollars per inch.  The money could be better spent.

Since mankind seems to never learn through history, I am sure we will Monday-morning quarterback the tragic event caused by an NEO encounter.  Then we will hear the “if we hads” and the “only ifs” that we always hear; only we may not hear anything at all because The End will have come, suddenly… in a flash.

In closing this article, I would like to thank The Omega Letter and the Omega Letter Family.  This is my one-year anniversary of writing for Omega Letter.  I had no idea what to expect last February when I wrote my first article about the demise of a drug-addicted but very gifted woman who was found dead in her room.  The response was so positive from the OL community, and I feel blessed to be a part.  I know I’m a little controversial (I’ve been told), but I write what’s in my heart.  And to the many of you who have purchased my novels and are helping to support my effort to be a best-selling author, hugs from me to you!

To Jack Kinsella and daughter Kari, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the best subscription-based newsletter that I have read, The Omega Letter.
