The COMET ELENIN DECEPTION – Facts, Falsehood & Lessons to Learn

By Chris Fullager. Used by permission.

 

It sounded pretty good. A juicy cocktail of end time signs & feast dates, an astronomical calamity of Hollywood proportions, hidden planets, 3 days of darkness on Earth and even Obama running to a Colorado bunker to hide out in the middle of the key dates. Something must be up? All the You Tuber video makers plotted the course keeping us alarmed, the watchmen cried out, odd photos circulated, the endless Facebook posts & video shares by many people over the past 6 months all counted down to its climax this week. Never has a block of dirty ice attracted the attention of so many!!

 

Amazing story , but in the end big FALSE claims!

 

Time is up. I feel I gotta call this one out.

 

This note is not to condemn or agitate anyone, there is grace, we have all had our fair share of missing it. But I feel these hyped up false predictions now need to be discussed.

 

THE FACTS

 

The facts are it was a just 3 mile wide comet, with no gravitational pull to affect anything (hense a tail which is gases escaping), would only come 25 million miles at its closest point to Earth (90 times further than the moon, similar distance to Venus). Comets have come and gone before without doing anything, it was always going to be a nonevent.

 

Comet Elenin was a sign in the heavens, aligning between the sun & the Earth during Rosh Hasshana, the feast of Israel expressing the Rapture. This was shared by many as a reminder of this truth, and its where it should have stopped.

 

THE FALSEHOOD

 

The following were the major False claims I have repeatably observed from many people:  

  • The Comet has already caused many earthquakes and was going to cause destructive mayhem during its sun/earth alignment 26-29 Sept – FALSE
  • It was also going to cause an eclipse of 3 days of darkness over the Earth between 26-29 Sept – FALSE
  • Hidden behind the Comet was a rogue Planet (Planet X/Nibiru/Brown Dwarf Star) that was really 3 times as big a Jupiter and would cause gravitational mayhem & disasters all over the Earth – FALSE

There were other things said but this will suffice for now to show what a load of bollocks & deception surrounded this event. We must realise that if we preach and share falsehood we can bring reproach on the name of Christ & cause confusion & distraction to many. It can also lead us to give false witness to disasters that do happen – eg saying its caused by a comet, rather than as direct judgments for sin, or for touching Israel which call out for repentance (Jer 10,10).

 

 

TRIP ROPES OF DECEPTION

 

Jesus warned us that in the end times there would be deception. I understand people have bought into this at different levels, some not at all, some in part saying `humm maybe, we soon see`, and others went the whole way. Here are some reason I feel we can get deceived:

  1. We can be deceived by a seemingly strong line up of eventsespecially when we really want something to happen. In this case using scriptures of signs in the Heavens that we do expect to see: in the sun, moon and stars as signs of Christ's coming; the Israel feast dates; Palestine at the UN issue at the same time; the testimony of the Nasa dude on You Tube and all the other you tube videos; and there was the Nibiru theory (which is actually New Age wako stuff by the way, the lady who started this said she it got her Nibiru messages from Aliens???). The line up was big.
  2. We can be deceived even by the fear of deception. Many refused to believe the official NASA report on the comet because of general Govt deception. But in this case even amateur Astronomers who can view it mostly agreed it was just a small comet which was even breaking up as it passed the Sun.
  3. We can be deceived when lots of people are jumping on the bandwagon. Many watchmen & online bible teachers repeated the claims, as did many who read or watch their teachings. And who makes those crazy you tube videos anyway, ones with names such as`The Destroyer Cometh – Behind Elenin', Im sure many werent even Christian people who made them. Lets be cautious of the buzz of sensationalism & hype, and keep a sound mind.
  4. We can be deceived if anything gets before a close relationship with the Lord, such as busyness in ministry, seeking to be first to break a story on FB, seeking signs etc, we will at times be deceived by those things. If we have not regularly come to Him, as He requested, to learn of Him, there will then be a subtle form of pride in our own heart that can cause us to be lead astray.

 

WHO WILL SEEK GOD ABOUT THESE ISSUES FIRST

  • "My sheep hear my voice and a stranger they will not follow" (John 10)
  • "Come to Me … Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart" (Matt 11, 28-30)
  • “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God …The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Roms 8, 14-15)
  • "If you ask anything in My name, I will do it." (John 14)
  • "when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come." (John 16)

We are called to hear his voice for ourselves.

If we seek Him, we will know the truth every time and not fall prey to speculation, sensationalism and presumption. He leads us most often by the inward witness in our spirit. As we seek God, His peace will get stronger and stronger witnessing to a message as true, or our spirit will get more and more disturbed on a false message. This requires humble consistent prayer or we will likely just hear our own spirit not God’s. If we dont take the time to seek Him, we will likely miss it.

 

 

Before long the next false distraction will arise, so lets ensure to hear from God.

And dont get side-tracked from the main mission – preach the gospel. Time is short !!

 

Now Im interesting to hear what others have to say about this issue ….

    The Bible says that this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world for a witness, and THEN the end shall come.

    Mat 24:14
    And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    It also says in the Bible.

    Col 1:23
    If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and (BE NOT MOVED AWAY FROM THE HOPE OF THE GOSPEL), which ye have heard, and (WHICH WAS PREACHED TO EVERY CREATURE WHICH IS UNDER HEAVEN); whereof I Paul am made a minister;

    How are these two scriptures reconciled?

    • Maybe its like the usage of the past tense where God says "By whose stripes you were healed", "You have died, and your life is hid in Christ with God."

      That is to say, its done as far as God is concerned, but it hasn't manifested yet.

        Hi Michael

        When I ask, how are they reconciled?
        I ask while fully believing, they are in fact reconciled.

        Reconciled:
        to bring into agreement or harmony; make compatible or consistent: to reconcile differing statements.

        The Bible being the Inspired Word of God, automatically places them in agreement, harmony, making them compatible with each other, and consistent in their thought, being fully reconciled with each other.
        For God does not contradict Himself.

        When Jesus said, “this Gospel of the Kingdom (SHALL BE) preached in all the world”, He spoke truth.
        30 yrs. later, when Paul said “the Gospel (WAS) preached to every creature”, he also spoke truth.

        Any irreconcilable differences can only be found in what we call Church Doctrine.
        Whenever there are discrepancies found between what the Bible says, and the Doctrines of the Church, we must always reconcile what our Doctrines say, with what the Bible says, not the other way around.
        With God being true and every man a liar, we are always bound, to believe the words of God.

        Therefore the new question is.
        How does Church Doctrine, Reconcile itself with these two Verses found in the Bible?
        With the understanding, both these Verses are in fact true, what should be, the Doctrine of the Church?
        According to Jesus Mt.24:14, and Paul Col.1:23
        1) “The end shall come”
        2) “The end has come”

  2. People had been talking about this one for a while, I think we Christians have a desire for things to be shaken up – but the RIGHT WAY to shake things up is to preach the gospel in power.

     

    The Bible says that this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world for a witness, and THEN the end shall come.

    We should be getting more excited about advancements in the gospel.

    When Afghanistan is evangelised, for example, we should be looking up for the return of the Lord is near.

    Until that time, in my view, people are wasting their time focusing on all the woes of the world. Those things are there, but what matters is rescuing people who are willing to be rescued.

      Hi Michael

      I have found, since you posted this Blog concerning the Comet, or Brown Dwarf.
      The HYPE is coming mainly from two sources.
      The first group is the Sky Watcher Society, those people that have their own Telescopes, having become Fanatical Zealots in the field of Astronomy, spreading the rumors of impending doom from outer space.
      The second group, are the Christian Community, those people that have their own Book of Revelation, and become Fanatical Zealots in the field of End Time Prophesy, spreading rumors of impending Tribulation upon mankind, from everywhere, even outer space.

      Therefore I agree with you.
      We have been told by Paul what our position should be.
      2Co 5:17-21
      17) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
      18) And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and (HATH GIVEN TO US THE MINISTRY OF RECONCILATION);
      19) To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and (HATH COMMITTED UNTO US THE WORD OF RECONCILIATION).
      20) Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
      21) For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

      Because.
      Rom 8:15
      For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

      2Ti 4:2
      Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

      Be Blessed
