Comet LovejoyJanuary 7-9 will be the best viewing for Comet Lovejoy C/2014 Q2, which some call the New Year Comet. This ‘frozen dirt ball’ will be approximately 44 million miles from the earth, but will be able to be seen with binoculars or even the naked eye.  The comet is named after Amateur astronomer Terry Lovejoy, who discovered this object August 17, 2014, from Brisbane, Australia.

Comets are often seen as a bad omen, appearing years before a major war or natural disaster.  A few examples are of a comet was sited before the Exodus, the first Passover and the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD.  In Natural History, Pliny wrote that it was a “terrible comet…(that) was twisted like a coil, and it was very grim to behold.” Exodus 9:19 records  “So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, so very heavy that there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.” The Jewish Talmud records ‘stones fell in Egypt and were very hot.’ Josephus wrote about a  heavenly appearance resembling a sword in the sky before the destruction of the Temple.

October 2011  Astronomy magazine carried an interesting article on comets. The first paragraph caught my attention, “..This makes them an object of popular fascination and has led to their common association as omens of significant events on Earth. (The destruction of Jerusalem by Roman Emperor Titus and the Norman conquest of England are two famous examples)”  [please remember astronomy is a science, astrology is witchcraft]

God many times will use a comet as a sign of upcoming events. Job 38:22, “Have you entered the treasury of snow, Or have you seen the treasury of hail(23) Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, For the day of battle and war?“ (see my post of 9/25/11 and 9/26/11 for history of comets and wars in our time)

Keep looking up! Our redemption is drawing nigh! It is very interesting to have this heavenly appearance in this Shemitah Year.
