Apophis and the Number 7: Why it May Impact Earth in 2029 or 2036
The great mountain seven stades round, after peace, war, famine, inundation:
It will roll far drowning great countries, even ancient ones, and great foundation.
And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
Thus is the case with the giant asteroid Apophis (the Greek name of the Egyptian god of Chaos, Apep, also called The Evil Uncreator), due to next approach our planet on April 13, 2029 and again in late March 2036. After that the intervals between passages lengthen significantly. If Earth is not impacted by Apophis in 2029 or 2036, then the next two flybys that will be as dangerously close are in 2068 and 2105.
On April 13, 2029 it will pass 31,000 kilometers of Earth. The distance is ten times CLOSER than the moon, and even closer than some man-made satellites. The colossal asteroid will skim the Earth from a height at which many of the planet’s spacecraft operate. It will be the closest asteroid of its size in recorded history ... aside from the one that destroyed the dinosaurs. On that date, it will become as bright as magnitude 3, an easy naked eye object assuming it doesn't impact (in which case it will be very bright indeed, briefly). The asteroid is almost as tall as NYC's Empire State Building and would have the explosive force of 750 megatons if it impacted the Earth. For comparison, the largest hydrogen bomb ever detonated had the explosive force of 57 megatons. In terms of natural disasters the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa was the equivalent of roughly 200 megatons.
What is lacking for the great destroyer is a base 7 precedent somewhere in our past. There is none, but by assuring us that Apophis will return again seven years later in 2036, assuming it does not impact earth in 2029, a future precedent is established. By becoming a base 7 event, Apophis also becomes a potentially catastrophic event waiting to happen in EITHER 2029 or 2036.
It is that number 7 that makes it dangerous, not the scientific data.
Regardless of the projections or potential kill/miss ratios, APOPHIS WILL become a BASE 7 EVENT between April 2029 and March 2036. Thus all initial warnings made must be heeded, such as the likelihood that if the colossal giant does not strike Earth in 2029, it will shear our planet's atmosphere and return for a full on impact in 2036. Some destructive heat energy may even be unleashed in 2029 due to the shearing effect.
Even so, scientists have only now been conducting simulation tests to figure out what would happen if Apophis struck our planet or impacted a large city such as New York.
Still, that is only 7 years after the Chelyabinsk meteor entered Earth's atmosphere over Russia on February 15, 2013. The light from the meteor was brighter than the Sun, visible up to 62 miles away. It produced a huge shock wave of about the same force as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Over 7,200 buildings in six cities across the region were damaged by the explosion's shock wave, and about 1,500 people were injured seriously enough to seek medical treatment. The only precedent for the the Chelyabinsk meteor was the 1908 Tunguska event (June 30). That was 105 (7 x 15) years earlier. Apophis, although not expected to come very close to Earth (supposedly), will pass uncomfortably close in terms of the base 7 interval between February 15, 2013 and January 5, 2020. This is the sort of interval that often occurs in base 7 between two similar events, off by six weeks, a month or two months (or occasionally spot on to the very day).
Perhaps Apophis will in some manner produce a small fragment that will stray quickly to Earth on or near January 5, 2020 ... one that will rival the force and brightness of the 2013 Chelyabinsk meteor. We might think of it as a kind of calling card to remind us of the bigger threat posed by Apophis in 2029 or 2036.
June 24, 2020: It is no longer believed that the asteroid that caused the Tunguska Effect in Siberia on June 30, 1908 created an air burst similar to what occurred in Chelyabinsk in 2013 before crashing into the earth. It is now believed that the asteroid never hit our planet at all. Instead, the mere shearing of earth's upper atmosphere by the Tunguska asteroid produced a shock wave that resulted in nearly 800 square miles in the Siberian forest to be flattened within seconds, then the asteroid shot back out into space. One can appreciate the degree of damage and destruction this shock wave produced:
The Tunguska event, a seismic blast that rocked a remote Siberian forest more than a century ago, is believed to have been caused by a meteor that exploded before it hit the ground. A new study sheds more light on the asteroid, noting it may have never actually hit Earth at all.
(Image: © Sovfoto/Universal Images Group via Getty Images) A new explanation for a massive blast over a remote Siberian forest in 1908 is even stranger than the mysterious incident itself. Known as the Tunguska event, the blast flattened more than 80 million trees in seconds, over an area spanning nearly 800 square miles (2,000 square kilometers) - but left no crater.
Unfortunately on April 13, 2029, Apophis will in a similar fashion SHEAR OUR UPPER ATMOSPHERE! The catastrophic damage it will almost certainly cause may be comparable to Tunguska, except it may happen over a habitable, populated part of the planet. Imagine 800 square miles of an area that included New York City, Paris, London, or any other capital city ... or simply a large city anywhere or a populated area outside of a city. It will be nothing less than apocalyptic. If it also passes through Earth's keyhole, it will then return on April 13, 2036 and IMPACT!
In a live broadcast to his more than 335,000 YouTube followers, the preacher linked Asteroid Apophis to passages in Revelation 8:8. Pastor Begley said: "It doesn't matter if it deep impacts us or not. It's too big, that's too close.
NASA is already gearing up for the flyby of the asteroid Apophis on April 13, 2029, despite it being almost a decade away. Apophis, which is 340 metres wide, is set to pass Earth at a staggeringly close distance of 31,200 kilometres (19,400 miles) in 2029, and while NASA has ruled out the possibility of it hitting Earth, it will skim the orbital paths of some satellites.
Heads Up, There Is An 1,100 Foot Wide Asteroid Heading Our Way And It's Going To Get Very, Very Close
Mark your calendars. April 13, 2029. That's the day a monstrous 1,100 foot wide asteroid is going to go zooming by Earth at a rather alarmingly close distance from the planet. In fact, when asteroid 99942 Apophis (2004 MN4) buzzes our planet it will be so close that it will actually be visible to the naked eye.
Asteroid Apophis will come exceptionally close to our planet on April 13, 2029, giving astronomers a chance to study it in great detail. Although scientists have ruled-out any odds of impact, some Christians evangelists believe the 1,200ft-wide (370m) space rock is a biblical harbinger of doom.
The scripture in question reads: "Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them. "The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth.
In less than ten year's time, a huge icy space rock taller than the Eiffel Tower will travel perilously close to Earth. Named after the Egyptian god of chaos, Asteroid 99942 Apophis is big enough to kill tens of millions of people if it were to hit our planet.
Chernobyl in Russian means "Wormwood."Any bearing on the following information? "The Wormwood Prophecy," by Thomas Horn, is God-given to alert all about Apophis, an asteroid named by NASA after an ancient demon already en route to planet earth! NASA could be covering up its potential danger.On hitting its destination, it could poison 1/3 of water per Revelation 8:10.
A 370-metre wide asteroid known as 99942 Apophis is potentially on a collision course with Earth, and it could cause global devastation if it does hit. The Apophis God of Chaos asteroid is named after the Ancient Egyptian god of evil, darkness and destruction.
From all the asteroids that have made a close encounter with Earth and passing through the planet's orbit, this may be potentially the most dangerous one yet. In the event that this particular asteroid passes into Earth, then it could result in environmental disasters.
Ufologist Billy Meier claimed that aliens have warned him about the destruction that the killer asteroid Apophis will cause on Earth during an impact event. He also said the aliens suggested a way on how to successfully deflect the massive asteroid away from Earth.
Michael Horn, a self-proclaimed scientist and official representative for alleged alien contactee Billy Meier has claimed that earth's impact with Apophis asteroid could pull the planet back to prehistoric ages. Horn made these remarks while talking exclusively to Express.co.uk. Contradicting NASA predictions, Horn assured that this rogue space body will definitely hit the earth, causing massive destruction everywhere.
Asteroid trackers at the observatory were able to observe the space rock for two days before their views were disrupted by bad weather. As a result of the mishap, there was some uncertainty about the space rock's orbit. NASA has since ruled out any major risk of impact, including on the two dates in 2029 and 2036.
A BIBLE scholar has shockingly claimed to Express.co.uk that an asteroid heading toward Earth has a far greater chance of striking than originally predicted and, when it does, it will be fulfilling a prophecy for the end of the world.
Nasa is already preparing for the arrival of a huge asteroid named the "God of Chaos" that will skirt past Earth in 10 years. On 13 April, 2029, people looking towards the sky will see a speck of light streaking across it, which will quickly get brighter and faster.
The colossal asteroid will skim the Earth from a height at which many of the planet's spacecraft operate. Asteroid Apophis will swing by from a distance of about 19,000 miles (31,000 km) above the surface. And when the asteroid approaches, it will be visible to the naked eye as a speck of light gradually "getting brighter and faster".
Astronomers have calculated the Apophis asteroid will speed past Earth on April 13, 2029, at just 18,600 miles away - a hair's width in astronomical terms. To put that into perspective, the moon is 238,900 miles away.
I am sure the world will think the crash is somehow linked to the 100 year event, but that's usually not the kind of anniversaries where things happen all over again. Usually a century repetition of history is actually a 98-year repeat (7 x 14 years). Thus there were 98 years between the assassinations of U.S. presidents Abraham Lincoln (1865) and John F. Kennedy (1963).
Thus if 1929 still had any influence on future events, it would cause a Crash of 2027. But the vibes from 1987 (Black Monday) and 2008 are much stronger and in line, making September-October 2029 the more likely vector. One good reason is that the 1987 event was much worse than the 1929 crash ... much, much worse. Yet, unlike 1929, Black Monday failed to plunge the country into a ten-year depression.
In fact it was the 1987 crash that I used to forecast the crash of 2008, an event that was fulfilled live on my main website. The 2008 crash resulted in the Great Recession, but failed to plunge the world economy into a depression as I predicted. So I was right about the crash and I was partially right about the longer term consequences.
But that is twice a major meltdown on Wall Street, both historic, failed to bring about another Great Depression. Perhaps in 2029 we will be as lucky as '87 and '08, but we all know what they say about three strikes in baseball: "three strikes and you're out."
However, this is an extraordinary situation: for the first time in modern history, a disease has caused a stock market crash and may result in a depression. For something like this, there is no precedent, and thus no historical pattern from which it could have been anticipated in advance. Not even most prophecy has directly linked plague with the world economy. But now that it has happened, COVID19 has become a precedent for financial disaster due to pandemics ... something future generations will have to learn from and include in their calculations.
Investors are making the biggest bet in the futures market since 2011 that the stock market is going to sell off. There's been a net short position in E-mini S&P 500 futures building since April. Some strategists believe when a lot of investors take the same position, there's a herd mentality at work and investors are actually sending a contrarian signal.
The decline of the U.S. dollar could happen at 'warp speed' in the era of coronavirus, warns prominent economist Stephen Roach
Stephen Roach, a Yale University senior fellow and former Morgan Stanley Asia chairman, tells MarketWatch that his forecast for a sharp deterioration of the U.S. dollar could be a very near-term phenomenon, not an event that looms off in the distance.
Stocks suffered their biggest one-day pull-back in three months on Thursday as traders grew concerned about the number of coronavirus cases increasing in some states that are reopening up from lockdowns. Shares that have surged recently on hopes for a smooth reopening of the economy led the declines.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - As if trips to the grocery store weren't nerve-wracking enough, U.S. shoppers lately have seen the costs of meat, eggs and even potatoes soar as the coronavirus has disrupted processing plants and distribution networks.
J.P. Morgan Chief Investment Officer Bob Michele predicted it will take 10-12 years after the pandemic for U.S. employment to get back to its pre-coronavirus level, insisting it won't be as simple as turning the economy back on. "No, it's not that simple ...
TOKYO (AP) - European shares have opened higher after China reported its exports rose 3.5% in April from a year earlier as its factories and supply chains revived after pandemic shutdowns. France's CAC 40 gained 0.4% in early trading to 4,452.93. Germany's DAX added 0.6% to 4,452.93.

The unprecedented world economic crisis will inevitably lead to social chaos and the breakdown of law and order and unknown consequences. Lest you think this is an exaggeration, look at what's happening in Lebanon.
IMF slashes growth forecasts, says world will 'very likely' experience worst recession since the 1930s
The global economy will this year likely suffer the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, the International Monetary Fund said Tuesday, as governments worldwide grapple with the Covid-19 pandemic. The Washington-based organization now expects the global economy to contract by 3% in 2020.

(Photo by Smith Collection/Gado/Getty Images) (CNSNews.com) - The number of Americans counted as "not in the labor force," meaning they did not have a job and were not looking for one, increased by 1,763,000 to a record 96,845,000 in March, the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - The U.S. economy is currently facing its toughest challenge since the Great Depression, and millions of Americans suddenly find themselves out of work. Financial experts have long advised people to build a savings account for emergencies, but it's fairly safe to say that no one saw a widespread economic emergency of this scale coming.
Nonfarm payrolls dropped by 701,000 in March, according to Labor Department numbers released Friday that only begin to show the economic damage wrought by the coronavirus crisis. It was the first decline in payrolls since September 2010 and came close to the May 2009 financial crisis peak of 800,000.
Bloomberg 16 hrs ago Satyajit Das (Bloomberg Opinion) -- The novel coronavirus has already had a significant impact on the global economy, which will worsen if the outbreak and the shutdowns designed to contain it continue for very long.
NEW YORK (AP) - The Dow Jones Industrial Average surged to its best day since 1933 as Congress and the White House neared a deal on Tuesday to inject nearly $2 trillion of aid into an economy ravaged by the coronavirus.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The imagery floats in sepia-colored photographs, faintly recalled images of bedraggled people lined up for bread or soup. Shacks in Appalachian hollows. Ruined investors taking their lives in the face of stock market crashes. Desperation etched on the faces of a generation that would soon face a world war.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average soared on Tuesday, logging its best day in 87 years as investors bet U.S. lawmakers would deliver soon a stimulus bill to rescue the economy from the damage caused by the coronavirus and shutdowns designed to stop its spread. It was a historic bounce coming amid a historic sell-off.
Twenty-two days. That's all it took for the S&P 500 to fall 30% from its record high, the fastest drop of this magnitude in history. The second, third and fourth quickest 30% pullbacks all occurred during the Great Depression era in 1934, 1931 and 1929, respectively, according to data from Bank of America Securities.
The most brutal stretch for global markets since the financial crisis likely isn't over yet, say investors and analysts who believe it is too early to assess the possible scale of economic damage from the coronavirus. In just a few weeks, U.S. stocks have lost roughly a third of their value.
Before sunrise this morning, a normally calm and very senior Wall Street banker texted me: "All hell is about to break loose. No safe havens."

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The coronavirus shockwaves rippling through U.S. stocks are forcing investors to contemplate outcomes more dire than a recession, including several quarters of declining economic activity, a credit crisis or even a depression. The rising global toll from the pandemic and the uncertainty over how far it may spread has left investors and economists scrambling to gauge the financial fallout.
Global stock markets are sliding after the Federal Reserve cut its most important interest rates to near zero Sunday evening to help blunt the economic damage from the fast-spreading novel coronavirus. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell called the actions " strong measures," but the emergency rate cut, the second in two weeks -and an unusually large one-percentage-point cut at that - unnerved markets once again.
Stocks soared Friday as Wall Street rebounded from the sharp losses suffered in the previous session - the worst since the "Black Monday" market crash in 1987. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 1,985 points higher, or 9.4%, at 23,185.62. Friday marked the Dow's biggest-ever point gain.
Still, keep an eye on the current situation. A 1987 and 2008 repeat should not be happening now but in 2022 or seven years later ... in 2029.
