IMPORTANT 9-11-2013 UPDATE NOTICE: So far, there have been no reports coming out of Russia of people dying from any mysterious illnesses, as far as I know. So it appears that the Chelyabinsk Meteor Strike was another sign resembling the blazing Wormwood Star to come.
However, this article still has some importance as it shows that many of the Judgments of the Great Tribulation may have already begun to be fulfilled, which in turn suggests that we are already in the Tribulation period, and the Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a false doctrine. It also has links so some of my most important End Time articles showing just how far into the Tribulation we may already be.
Despite the fact that we are likely well into the seven-year Tribulation period, I believe that there will be a Rapture for the Wise Virgins, and it is tied to the middle of the Tribulation period, but BEFORE the Great Tribulation begins at the Sixth Seal Judgment. I also believe that there may be another Rapture before the Great Tribulation is over that will be for the now wizened Foolish Virgins. Links to my most important articles reflecting my current theories on the Rapture and the End Times appear at the end of this article.

Concerning the size and power of the Meteor blast, this article states:
“New information provided by a worldwide network of sensors has allowed scientists to refine their estimates for the size of the object that entered that atmosphere and disintegrated in the skies over Chelyabinsk, Russia, at 7:20:26 p.m. PST, or 10:20:26 p.m. EST on Feb. 14 (3:20:26 UTC on Feb. 15).
The estimated size of the object, prior to entering Earth's atmosphere, has been revised upward from 49 feet (15 meters) to 55 feet (17 meters), and its estimated mass has increased from 7,000 to 10,000 tons. Also, the estimate for energy released during the event has increased by 30 kilotons to nearly 500 kilotons of energy released.”
“Could this Meteor Strike be the Great Star that falls from Heaven burning like a torch that is called Wormwood, and which is associated with the Third Trumpet Judgment?”
~*~ Revelation 8:10-11 ~*~ Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck - “Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.”
~*~ Revelation 6:11-17 ~*~ Sixth Seal: “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?’”

~*~ Revelation 8:8-9 ~*~Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck - “Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”

First Trumpet: Vegetation Struck - “The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.”
At the time I noted them, I thought these eclipses could have been the fulfillment of the Solar and Lunar Eclipses that the Prophet Joel mentioned would happen just before the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord (or the Great Tribulation), and I still do (See Joel 2:31). They also may refer to the Full Solar and Full Lunar Eclipse that may have possibly been foretold in the Book of Revelation. There, it is prophesied that the Sun and Moon will be darkened AFTER a massive, pole shifting earthquake:
Although the Sun and Moon can be darkened by heavy particulates in the atmosphere of our planet from massive fires, volcanic eruptions or massive explosions from Meteor or Asteroid strikes, this can also be caused by eclipses. It is even possible that God was referring to both the darkening of the sky by cataclysms as well as eclipses when He had His prophets write down His words. Incidentally, did you know that the December 21st, 2010 Lunar Eclipse was accompanied by unprecedented amounts of deep seismic Earth tremors for two days before and after? It was as if Yahweh God were shaking the entire planet in an effort to wake them out of their fallen, sin-induced slumber!
At that time, I believe that the world will also see the appearance of the 144,000 Witnesses of Revelation Chapter 7 on the world scene. I explain these events in light of the First and Second Rapture in the second revised article linked to below. It is entitled “Come Up Here, And Come Away!”, and I highly recommend reading it to gain a better understanding of the Rapture, as well as the timing of this momentous event at the onset, and near to the close of the three and a half year Great Tribulation.
Great Meteor Procession of 1913: Their Current Prophetic Significance -
Article Excerpt: Could the near-miss Asteroid that will pass Earth on February 15th, 2013, Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) that will be visible in March 2013, and Comet ISON (C/2012 S1) that will be very bright and visible from November 2013 through January 2014 be associated with another, far more destructive meteor shower and world war known in the Bible’s Book of Ezekiel as the Battle of Gog and Magog? If so, I equate this war with the war outlined in Psalm 108, in which the USA or Ephraim, and Israel or Judah will be attacked by outside enemies, will counterattack, and will win a decisive victory against their foes after suffering some possibly serious casualties.
