Scientists say they may have found proof that Sodom was destroyed roughly 3,600 years ago by a cosmic impact event. They estimate the evidence they have found is best explained by a space rock exploding about 2.5 miles above ground, creating a blast around 1,000 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Air temperatures would have then skyrocketed to 3,600 degrees Fahrenheit, setting the entire city on fire, demolishing every building, and killing all the inhabitants.
There are hundreds of thousands of meteors and comets out there. Most of them miss us, just because space is big. And many more are captured by the gravity of outer planets and moon. But some get through. It’s happened before and astronomers say it’s going to happen again.
It’s pretty much impossible to read Revelation (8:7-12) and NOT see that this is what is being predicted:
“The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
“The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
“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— the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.
“The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.”
