Thanks for responding to my inquiry concering timelines with Gog Magog and the Two Witnesses. It sure helped. I have read and enjoyed your on-line essay on “As It Was In The Days of Noah” . It answered many unanswered questions. Thank you.
I am a little hesitant in asking this next question, as you know on the internet we should not believe everything we read. But I do read and discern the best I can and discard that which is not true. I use my knowledge of what God has taught me to make this discernment. Having said that, in your article “As It Was In The Days of Noah” you made the case that there have been at least two recorded calamities that came upon this Earth. The one recorded in Gen 1, verse 2 and the one that happened during Noah’s flood.
I have recently come across the planet X theory that can account for these calamities. Again I will say the planet X theory as read on most sources sounds pretty far fetched and unbelievable as they have attached reptilian/alien story’s to it. However, as I looked into it and focusing only on the recently discovered and not publicly announced 10th planet; it can explain for the two above mentioned calamities and the soon to happen calamity mentioned in Revelation.
Basically, planet x makes a 3,600 year orbit around our sun, and each orbit as it passes near Earth the large gravitational pulls from this large planet apparently causes pole shifts, earthquakes and shifts in land masses. The ancient Mayan Calandar and their writings speak of a similar calamity to come in 2012.
I have read that the ancient Sumerian culture left clay tablets describing this planet they called Nibiru. http://www.subversiveelement.com/Planet_X.html

Lastly, I copied and included a short article on Bible Prophecy and Planet X below;
Begining of article..
Bible Prophecy and Planet X?
Planet X seems to fit in with Bible prophecy, in a number of instances. The Book of Revelation is perhaps one of the best examples of this correlation and is the last book in the New Testament. It is said to represent, in symbolic language, the record of events received in the form of visions given to John by an angel, sent by Jesus. It speaks of conditions and events that could occur prior to and during Jesus’ second coming. The chapters and verses are characterized by 7 seals, 7 trumpets, and 7 bowls, which describe the order of these purposive events as they may occur.
The sixth seal deals with “Cosmic Disturbances”. Compare the words of the chapter addressing the sixth seal, Rev 6:12-15, with what is predicted during Planet X s passage.
“I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.”
In analyzing this:
“There was a great earthquake”. 9-15 Richter scale quakes could occur during a pole shift.
“The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair”. The ash from the many spewing volcanoes could block out the light of the sun.
“The whole moon turned blood red” The planet’s comet-like tail is comprised of much red dust which may make the moon appear to be red when viewed through it.
“The stars in the sky fell to earth” Asteroids, space debris, boulders, gravel, and dust are held in the suns giant magnetic field and follow along in Niburu’s comet like tail. There is much ecological evidence that this has swept the earth before. The earth could also become highly charged due to increased solar flaring. Both earth s electromagnetic charge and its gravity could pull some of this debris into it again. An alternate perspective might be, that during a possible shifting crust, the stars would look like they are rapidly moving or falling, when viewed from earth s surface
“The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up” This possibly describes ash plumes of a myriad of volcanoes may erupt globally, or again, moving or scrolling up or down while the shift is occurring.
“Every mountain and island was removed from its place” During a possible pole shift, when the inner magma is shifting, the crust could also shift mountains and islands from their current positions.
“The kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains” The US Government has apparently already built over 129 underground cities, along with an interconnecting tunnel systems. Contractors are continuing to build domes in highly elevated locations for more government officials. Others are building concrete fortresses to take refuge in. As ocean water could be responsible for many drowning and much destruction.
Have you read or heard of these ancient Sumarian tablets that speak of Nibiru? I won’t waste much more of your time. I just wanted to know if you have heard of this and what your take is of it.
Thanks, and keep up the good work.
Thanks for your response and comments. I’ve read some references to the Planet X theory and I’m familiar with the furor about the Mayan calendar and 2012. While a planet X involvement is a possibility considered by some for ancient planetary disasters, Genesis 1:1-2 and 6:11-12 do not mention any involvement from a passing planetary object in these disasters. For that reason, the subject is speculative, but I am keeping an open mind on the subject.
Re: the Mayan calendar and the year 2012, the more that Christians become convinced that 2012 marks the end of the age, the less-likely that it will be so. I say this because Matthew 24:44 and 25:1-13 state that Christ will return at a time when latter-day believers do not expect him! I discuss this subject in my article “Jesus Christ’s Five Warnings to Latter-Day Believers.”
