“Attack of the Megacryometeors!” by Michael G. Mickey

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.

    Hi Michael, thanks for the really interesting piece about megacryometeors. Other signs, as you know, are all the earthquakes (most going unreported) not to mention the many volcanoes all active at the moment. Truly I believe we are entering the last days, though they may yet last a good many years. One thing, though, does the Bible really teach that the faithful will spend eternity in a burning fire suffering dreadful torture? I believe the Bible teaches us that eternal death (as opposed to eternal torture) is the punishment for sin. The reason I say this is because in the Garden of Eden God told Adam and Eve that disobedience would be punished by death and so they died. Had they been obedient they would not have been denied access to the tree of life and would have lived for ever. Also, in the letter to the Romans Paul says the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). This makes sense when we consider how loving God is and does not want to see anyone die, let alone have to suffer torture for all eternity. God cannot allow sin or sinners to remain for ever in His presence because of His purity and holiness, so after Christ’s 1000-year reign all sin and sinners will be purged from the earth once and for all and will cease to exist. The choice for mankind is eternal life or eternal death – not eternal torture. God bless, Truthseeker

    Hey Truthseeker, glad to have you back!
    Take a look at this article from the GotQuestions? web site and let me know what you think.

    Question: “Is hell real? Is hell eternal?”

    Answer: Is hell real? Studies show that over 90% of people in the world believe in a “heaven” while less than 50% believe in an eternal hell. According to the Bible, hell is most definitely real! The punishment of the wicked in hell is as never-ending as the bliss of the righteous in Heaven. The punishment of the wicked dead in hell is described throughout Scripture as “everlasting fire” (Matthew 25:41), “unquenchable fire” (Matthew 3:12), “shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2), a place where “their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44-49), a place of “torments” and “flame” (Luke 16:23,24), “everlasting destruction” (2 Thessalonians 1:9), a place of torment with “fire and brimstone” where “the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever” (Revelation 14:10,11), and a “lake of fire and brimstone” where the wicked are “tormented day and night forever and ever” (Revelation 20:10). Jesus Himself indicates that the punishment in hell itself is everlasting – not merely the smoke and flames (Matthew 25:46).

    The wicked are forever subject to the fury and the wrath of God in hell. They consciously suffer shame and contempt and the assaults of an accusing conscience — along with the fiery wrath of an offended deity — for all of eternity. Even those in hell will acknowledge the perfect justice of God (Psalms 76:10). Those who are in the very real hell will know that their punishment is just and that they alone are to blame (Deuteronomy 32:3-5). Yes, hell is real. Yes, hell is a place of torment and punishment that lasts forever and ever, with no end! Praise God that through Jesus, we can escape this eternal fate (John 3:16,18,36).

    Michael:

    I think you will soon find that the Christians WILL BE HERE DURING THE FIRST 3 1/2 + years of the Tribulation! The Pre-Tribulation Rapture “Doctrine” simply WON’T STAND UP TO SCRIPTURE!

    Further, I believe if you look at Psalm 109 it talks about a “wicked man and the ‘accuser’ standing at his right side”. I think the Anti-Christ will make his appearance in 2009 and the next SEVEN YEARS could quite possibly be the Tribulation.

    If Jesus “comes” back for the Second Time in the “Pre-Tribulation Rapture” then it would be His THIRD Coming when he comes back at the end! That doesn’t fit in scripture – there is NO THIRD COMING!

    Next if all the “Christians” are out of here in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture God said he would send STRONG DELUSIONS so that they would believe a lie – what about the MULTITUDE that get Raptured in Ch. 7 – Who would teach them the gospel? How can they even believe the gospel if Almighty God is sending them STRONG DELUSIONS to believe a lie?

    The Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a LIE FROM THE PIT OF HELL! I would love to debate it with you because there are so many “hole” in the doctrine that it simply will not stand up to scripture!

    Paul:

    In 2 Thes:7 it says; For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so, till he is taken out of the way.

    The “one who now holds it back” is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit resides in all true Christians. If the Spirit is gone from here than so are we. The antichrist cannot come forward until the Holy Spirit is gone from the earth. We also will be gone from the earth because the Spirit is in us and if He leaves, we go with Him.

    The antichrist COULD come in 2009, but, we are not to set dates for this event. I hope he DOES come in 2009. I hope he comes in 2008. I am a pre-Trib believer and I believe that we will be gone before he makes his presence known. He may already be among us, but, if so, he has not yet been totally overtaken by satan, and I don’t believe the person that will become the antichrist even knows he is that person yet.

  6. Beth says:

    Paul,
    I believe there is overwhelming evidence of the Pre-Trib Rapture. Got Questions says this:
    The timing of the Rapture in relation to the Tribulation is one of the most controversial issues in the church today. The three primary views are Pretribulational (the Rapture occurs before the Tribulation), Midtribulational (the Rapture occurs at the mid-point of the Tribulation), and Posttribulational (the Rapture occurs at the end of the Tribulation). A 4th view, commonly known as Pre-wrath, is a slight modification of the Midtribulational position.

    First, it is important to recognize the purpose of the Tribulation. According to Daniel 9:27, there is a seventieth “week” (7 years) that is still yet to come. Daniel’s entire prophecy of the seventy weeks (Daniel 9:20-27) is speaking of the nation of Israel. It is a time period in which God focuses His attention especially on Israel. The seventieth week, the Tribulation, must also be a time when God deals specifically with Israel. While this does not necessarily indicate that the church could not also be present, it does bring into question why the church would need to be on the earth during that time.

    The primary Scripture passage on the Rapture is 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. It states that all living believers, along with all believers who have died, will meet the Lord Jesus in the air and will be with Him forever. The Rapture is God removing His people from the earth. A few verses later in 5:9 Paul says, “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The Book of Revelation, which deals primarily with the time period of the Tribulation, is a prophetic message of how God will pour out His wrath upon the earth during the Tribulation. It would seem inconsistent for God to promise believers that they will not suffer wrath and then leave them on the earth during the Tribulation. The fact that God promises to deliver Christians from wrath shortly after promising to remove His people from the earth seems to link those two events together.

    Another crucial passage on the timing of the Rapture is Revelation 3:10. There, Christ promises to deliver believers from the “hour of trial” that is going to come upon the earth. This could mean two things: (1) Christ will protect believers in the midst of the trials, or (2) Christ will deliver believers out of the trials. Both are valid meanings of the Greek word translated “from.” However, it is important to recognize what believers are promised to be kept “from.” It is not just the trial, but the “hour” of trial. Christ is promising to keep believers from the very time period that contains the trials, namely the Tribulation. The purpose of the Tribulation, the purpose of the Rapture, the meaning of 1 Thessalonians 5:9, and the interpretation of Revelation 3:10 all give clear support to the Pretribulational position. If the Bible is interpreted literally and consistently, the Pretribulational position is the most Biblically consistent interpretation.

    If there is no such thing as the pre-trib Rapture, how do you explain 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18?

    You said that the Rapture would mean Jesus would come back three times….not true. During the Rapture believers will be caught up in the air with Him….He will not be coming to earth, but we will meet Him in the air.

    I’m very entertained by the back-and-forth among you apparent Christians about when Christ is “returning”. Especially (from my 2010 vantage point) the 2008 references, the “all the earthquakes” statement (especially the unreported ones (how does he know about them then?!?)), and, especially, the “Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a LIE FROM THE PIT OF HELL” comment! You guys can’t seem to make up your minds! Can’t you see that you all sound like a bunch of superstitious, medieval dupes whose views of theology are little different than pagan mythology? (Hi, Michael!)
