Psalm 89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah
It was reported that on May 29th in 1996 a small asteroid passed 280,000 miles from the earth. Just a little bit farther away than our moon. It was said if it had hit the earth; it could have destroyed an area the size of an average state in the United States. It was also reported that it could have taken us out of orbit, destroying the earth, and the moon which orbits us. Every so often, we hear of a meteor or asteroid that is going to hit the moon or the earth and destroy it.
Honestly, I do not believe we as Christians ever have to worry about the earth being destroyed by an asteroid or meteor as long as we remain on this planet. Thousands of smaller asteroids hit the earth and the moon often, leaving small craters as their aftermath. So why can I be so sure there will not be one which will destroy our moon and us? Because I believe the Bible is true. If an asteroid that large does come, it will be after the rapture of the church and God will use it as part of His judgment on this earth. In addition, I hate to ruin their fun, but the Bible says the moon will be a faithful witness forever. How long is forever anyway?
All too often science has been the proof of the Bible’s accuracy. However, when it comes to believing science or the God’s Word, I will always believe God’s Word. He has been around a lot longer than the scientists have. Not to mention, the Bible has been 100% accurate. Can science make that claim? If you believe they can, watch your local weather report for the next couple of weeks.
