"Knowledge of what is going on in space and of what is approaching us could be of great import in next 5 - 10 years." This statement was made by the late Father Malachi Martin in response to a question pertaining to the purpose of the Vatican owned Mount Graham International Observatory. From 1958 to 1964 he served in Rome, where he was a close associate of the Pope.


Father Malachi Martin passed away in 1999.

Bible Prophecy and Planet X?


excerpts of the book "BlindSided"

by Mark Hazlewood

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.

Rev 6:12-15

"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 Nibiru'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.

Other Bible Prophesies Regarding End Times

  • -  The prophecy of Revelation 16:12 has lain quietly for almost 2,000 years, virtually defying fulfillment. It declares that the mighty Euphrates River will be dried up at the time of the Battle of Armageddon. But who is kidding whom? The Euphrates is the principal water source of the entire Middle East. This is like predicting that the Mississippi River will dry up! This Euphrates prophecy just appeared to be impossible. At least it did until the shocking headline appeared on the front page of the Indianapolis Star, January 13, 1990. It read, "Flow of Euphrates to Be Stopped for 30 Days." The article explained that Turkey had built the huge Ataturk Dam. Thirty days would be required to fill up the newly constructed reservoir and the Euphrates was temporarily stopped. The river is flowing again now, however, as of 1990, the mechanism is in place that can stop the flow of the Euphrates at will. The prophecy states that, at the time of Armageddon, the flow of the Euphrates will be dried up to facilitate the invasion of Israel. It will really be very simple. Just push the button, raise the dam, and the Euphrates stops. But remember, it’s only been possible since 1990!

  • -  Revelation 13:17: "And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." This prophecy simply states that, during the end time, everyone will need a mark or a number in order to participate in the economy. How could such a system possibly be implemented? Until recently, it couldn’t. Only since the invention of the computer and the advent of the Internet, has the fulfillment of this ancient prophecy been remotely possible. It has now become commonplace to see articles proposing a cashless society. Who hasn’t been prevented from using a credit card because of forgetting a PIN number (personal identification number)? Experiments are already being conducted with using eye scans, face scans and fingerprints for proof of identity. Positive ID has become necessary in a world that increasingly does business "online."

What about micro chipping? This has already begun. We were acclimatized to this early on through our pets. The step has been to targeted elderly, of course under the guise of providing them with a sense of security, knowing that all their medical records are obtainable by any medical service provider, with a simple scan. Micro chipping has also been suggested for children to appease parental fears of abduction. Your child can then be tracked by satellite, anywhere on the planet. But as your child grows into an adult, then what? Apparently some military personnel are already enslaved as such.

The new money of Europe, the euro, has been in use for over two years. Millions of euros are traded every day and yet to until 2002, physical euros did not exist. All transactions were electronic and cashless! Euro notes and coins were introduced in January 2002. Can a cashless society work? Europe has proven that it can.

Between online transactions and the use of smart cards, the current technology exists to set up a cashless society. The only blockade is public acceptance. How long will it be before society is able to get used to it? The Bible is crystal clear that the prophesied economic system will be implemented during the final three and one-half years before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Never possible before…totally possible now!

-Most of the prophecies of the Bible are written in symbols or are encoded. Only four or five give the literal name of a person or a place. Two of these special prophecies may have come to pass during the last fifteen years. When Saddam Hussein was forced to withdraw from Kuwait in 1991, he wreaked his vengeance by setting 700 of the world’s richest oil wells on fire. As a result, the sun was not seen in the area for the next three months. At noon, it was as dark as at midnight. In this apocalyptic vision, John saw what he described as locusts coming out of the smoke. These were not ordinary locusts. He said that the locusts had "breastplates of iron", "the faces of men", and "their stings were in their tails." John heard the sound of these "locusts." He said, "The sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle." Does this sound like a description of the modern helicopter to you? Remember that John had never seen a helicopter. He was merely attempting to record what he saw in his vision. It's anyone's guess whether this part of John's vision was about the 1991 Kuwait nightmare or if this has yet to come to pass.


Geologists Speculate on Noah's Flood

Some feel that the great flood of Noah’s Ark (Genesis 6 through 10) was a result of the passing of Planet X.

Some biblical fundamentalists have expended great energy searching for the remains of Noah's Ark. Geological research does find reason to believe there was indeed a vast, sudden and deadly flood around 5,600 B.C. (3,600x2), close enough to the possible time of Noah to fascinate biblical literalists and liberals alike. The Ryan Pitman candidate for the Great Flood locale is what we know as the Black Sea, bordering Turkey to the north. In 1993, Ryan and Pitman joined a Russian expedition on the Black Sea and used the latest technology to examine evidence of geological patterns, soil layers and forms of aquatic life that existed in ancient times. One telltale clue: freshwater mollusks with smashed shells gave way to saltwater creatures that had intact shells, a biological transition that could be dated through carbon-14 testing of the shell remains. From such research, the scientists spin this scenario: Until about 5600 B.C., the Black Sea was an inland fresh water lake, considerably smaller than today's saltwater sea and lying far below the level of the Mediterranean Sea.

Black Sea (From the article: "Trailing Ancient Mariners", Washington Post, September 26, 1999)

As the story is told in the Old Testament, the Great Flood lasted for 40 days and 40 nights, and submerged every living thing on Earth beneath 24 feet of water, sparing only Noah, his family and the pairs of animals he protected on his ark. Scientist never found Noah or his ark, but they believe in his flood. It happened about 7,600 (3600x2), when the Mediterranean Sea, swollen by melted glaciers, breached a natural dam separating it from the freshwater lake known today as the Black Sea.

The theory of the Black Sea's Neolithic catastrophe was developed by Columbia University marine geologist William Ryan and Walter Pitman over three decades of research and published this year in their book Noah's Flood. The authors describe how the sea level worldwide began to rise as glaciers melted at the end of the last ice age 15,000 years ago. When the melt began, the Black Sea was a fresh water lake fed by rivers, among them those known today as the Danube, the Dnieper and the Don. On the lake's southern edge, a 360-foot natural dam held back the waters of what is the Mediterranean Sea. By 7,600 years ago, sea levels probably had risen to within 15 feet of the lip of the Bosporus. "An apocalyptic deluge followed, inundating the freshwater lake below the dam, submerging thousands of square miles of dry land, flipping the ecosystem from fresh water to salt practically overnight and probably killing thousands of people and billions of land and sea creatures."

According to Biblical prophecy, when will Planet X arrive? Jesus in Matthew 24 versus 36 and 37 says: "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven," but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be." Jesus clearly states that only God knows the exact time of these events. Could it be more than coincidence that these versus compare the end times to the great flood?

In Matthew 24:3-14, the disciples asked Jesus what would be the signs of the end of the age. Jesus outlined specific disasters that would occur before His return. These included false Christs, wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence, earthquakes, false prophets, lawlessness, violence and a lack of love for others, all of which are happening in the world today.

Unlike most Biblical prophecies that sometimes take thousands of years to occur, such as in the prophecy of the birth of Christ in the book of Genesis, the seven seals give the appearance that they will happen rapidly. This gives the impression that all seven seals will occur within a few years.

The sixth seal holds the very real possibility of referring to Planet X’s passage or a similar cosmic event. If the seals are any indication of current events, then the arrival of Planet X in the very near future could certainly be fitting.

Revelation 16:9 speaks of an intense and exceedingly sore glowing heat and calamities coming upon earth. This could be solar radiation caused from solar flares and/or the increased core temperature of Earth.

Revelation 8:5 mentions thunder and lighting and a "vibrating commotion" This could be a reference to an atmospheric disturbance caused by a celestial object.

Revelation 8: 7 indicates that a third of the trees being consumed wholly and burned up along with some green pastures of hay. Note: This is consistent with Jude Verse 8, which mentions a large mountain that glows with lighting and little coals of fire, lifting up above the plain. Is this volcanic activity due to the gravitational effects of a Planet X type object?

Revelation 8:10 describes an "aster," glowing as a torch or lamp which looses force (orbit?) and alights on earth. Strong defines the word aster as a comet. Comet or Asteroid?

The Bible also speaks of a thousand years of peace after the catastrophic events described in the book of Revelation.

Revelation 20:1-6 says: "Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottom-less pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshipped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years".

The basic viewpoint regarding what is called the Millennium, or 1,000-year reign of Christ, holds that after the victory in Revelation 19, Christ will set up an earthly kingdom and will reign with the resurrected saints in peace and righteousness for 1,000 years. The good people of the world will prevail in the end.
