“Colombian authorities confirmed that a “giant fire ball” that fell from the sky in the central Santander department was a meteorite. The Colombian media has been buzzing with eye witness accounts of the fireball, which fell out of the sky and caused a massive explosion at 3:15PM local time Sunday. Bucaramanga Mayor Fernando Vargas confirmed the phenomenon was a meteorite that left a crater 100 meters in diameter where it crashed into the earth in the San Joaquin municipality in Santander. Colombian air force helicopters were commissioned to fly over the vicinity to try to locate the source of the explosion. The director of the University of Nariño’s Astronomic Observatory, Alberto Quijano, told RCN Radio Sunday that he believed the object was a meteorite. In rural areas of Santander, police received reports that the explosion had shattered windows in the zone.” [note: link to the ‘Columbian authorities confirm’ article is in Spanish)
This is a link to today’s Colombian TV news in English (no guarantee how long the story stays up). “Today we report on a meteorite crashing in Columbia. Thousands saw it, no one has found it yet. The fireball was seen in the skies around three in the afternoon.” It continues with video.
These events are part of the birth pangs. The Lord said in Luke 21:25 that “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.” This is a statement for the Tribulation but we see the beginnings of the signs tat will continue in frequency and intensity (like birth labor pangs) right through to the Tribulation when these signs will be such frequent occurrences that “men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” (Luke 21:26) That shaking up is starting now. It will intensify. After the rapture when the Tribulation begins it will be extremely intense! Are you ready to submit to the Lord for your salvation? He is Hope Eternal!
