Both The Star and UPI are reporting that a giant ball of ice – a megacryometeor – fell from a perfectly clear sky in Africa recently. It was one of the first ever recorded in Africa.
According to the Sun article, Professor Jesus Martinez-Frias, head of the Planetary Geology Laboratory at the Centro de Astrobiología in Madrid, Spain, is saying it could be evidence of “serious environmental problems.” No doubt!
A Wikipedia article indicates Martinez-Frias probably understands the mysterious phenomena as well as anyone, having investigated a ten-day period in 2000 where giant blocks of ice fell from cloudless skies over Spain. That’s chilling, wrath of God stuff right there! Amen?
Wikipedia states more than fifty megacryometeors have been recorded since 2000, but notes that it’s possible there have been more, many of them having been mistakenly categorized as meteors due to the craters they leave behind.
Only three months ago, according to an ABC news story, “a chunk of ice dropped out of the sky and left a huge hole in the ground” in Oakland’s Bushrod Park in California. Not even astronomy experts knew where it came from, according to the story.
The potential prophetic connection? In Revelation 16:21 we find the following description of a future event which is very reminiscent to the phenomena being discussed here:
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
A talent, in case you’re wondering, weighs approximately 100 lbs.
I know what you’re thinking if you’re not a believer. “Hundred-pound hailstones falling from the sky? Yeah, right!” Believe it or not, like it or hate it, it is definitely going to take place in the prophetic future! Thus sayeth the Lord!
In Revelation 16:17, the final bowl of God’s wrath is seen being poured out upon the earth near the end of the seven-year Tribulation Period – an event which will precede the visible, physical, bodily return of Jesus Christ and the saints to earth at Armageddon. As we see in Revelation 16:21, those remaining alive on the earth at that time will blaspheme God, even while the 21st of twenty-one specific (and horrific) judgments from God to occur during the Tribulation Period is being poured out upon the earth, probably because harbingers of the hailstones to come will have been documented in the past by the scientific community, an example of which is a good informational website I found on the topic which has all kinds of information on known megacryometeor impacts, listing how many have taken place annually as well as where they have been located.
Why is it that mankind chooses to believe the latest documentation of such things taking place, while overlooking the accuracy of the Word of God in predicting events like these, noting events like this were going to come about many centuries ago, long before anyone had ever heard of a megacryometeor? The answer is simple. Given the option of bowing their knee to Christ or continuing to live their lives their way, many men and women today are so sin-riddled and carnal they will ignore even the best of evidence demonstrating the accuracy of the Word of God! They will do so solely for the purpose of continuing to rebel against the One who loves them most, often continuing to do so all the way to the grave! This sad truth is probably why we see the following description given of Christ’s return, as documented in Revelation 1:7:
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Indeed, at the moment the unrighteous realize the error of their ways and judgment is upon them with all hope of forgiveness gone, all kindreds of the earth will begin to wail! From that point forward, the unrighteous will be wailing throughout all eternity! What a shame, given the opportunities they all will have had to come to faith in Christ prior to that fate coming upon them!
In closing, megacryometeors are going to play a role in the future fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Consider yourself warned if you think the prospect of this coming to pass is folly. With full confidence in the Word of God, I tell you that events taking place in the world around us today, including megacryometeors, are warning a world that has forgotten its God that Jesus Christ is coming soon!
When Jesus comes, will He be coming for you? If not, there may be a gigantic hailstone in your future, presuming you somehow manage to stay alive long enough to see them rain down, which raises the following question: If you’re not a Christian, why? Are a few sinful pleasures, none of which are going to last forever, worth spending an eternity in a burning hell from which there will be no escape or hope of rescue?
Come to Jesus before it’s too late. He loves you — and time is running out.
