Huge asteroid capable of wiping out entire country is on near-collision course with Earth

Prophecy Sign:  Signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars

So today a rather large rock, (3,000 feet across), will slip past earth in the passing lane.  No harm done, but it does give us pause to think about a passage in the book of Revelation that may or may not be describing some such wayward asteriod of the future. (It's also quite conceivable that this huge blazing mountain may be the remains of a massive volcano sliding into the sea - eg Canary Islands).

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. Revelation 8:8-9 NIV

Huge asteroid capable of wiping out entire country is on near-collision course with Earth
A mammoth asteroid measuring 1,000-metre wide in on course to narrowly miss Earth within days, NASA predicts. The object called ‘2014-YB35’ is predicted to skim the Earth on Friday travelling at more than 23,000 mph in space. It is not unusual for small meteorites to pass close by, however one of this size is a very rare occurrence and poses a very real threat, an expert told the Express. Any impact would trigger devastating changes in the climate, earthquakes and tsunamis.

Huge asteroid to fly by Earth at 37,000 kph on Friday
A 1,000 meter-wide asteroid is heading towards Earth this week – and its course will reach its closest point to our planet on Friday, according to NASA. Traveling at a speed exceeding 37,000 kph, the 2014-YB35 asteroid is set to approach Earth from a distance of 4,473,807 km – some 11.7 times further away than the moon – according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. But should the asteroid's orbit be closer, the impact of collision could be devastating – and trigger earthquakes and tsunamis, as well as climate changes. For an asteroid of its size, it would not be difficult to beat the Tunguska Event of 1908, which left some 80 million trees knocked down in Siberia and sent a shock wave measuring 5.0 on the Richter scale.
