Mass hysteria over conspiracy theory rumors about a catastrophic asteroid impact event that will occur in September, 2015, continues to gain traction. The rumors of impending doom were reignited recently after a message originating from a conspiracy theorist with the online name Lyn Leahz was published on several online conspiracy theory website and forums.
Leahz claims that scientific researchers have confirmed that a 2.5-mile-wide asteroid or comet is headed toward Earth and will arrive between September 15 and September 28.
The Inquisitr first reported on conspiracy theory rumors about an impending global asteroid impact apocalypse that would wipe out much of the United States in February, 2015, noting the emergence of an online movement centered on the claim that the U.S. government has information about an impending catastrophe but is keeping the information secret to prevent mass panic.
However, the NWO and Illuminati elites are preparing to survive the catastrophe.
Although the conspiracy theory rumors appear to have originated with the prediction of a self-proclaimed prophet, Rev. Efrain Rodriguez, it exploded into a full-blown online prophetic movement following a statement credited to the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius on May 14, 2014, that the world had "500 days to avoid climate chaos."
The Inquisitr reported that following Fabius's May 14 statement, "a number of 'prophets' simply grabbed their calculators and with the help of a calendar, and the estimate of 500 days to the apocalypse, determined that the asteroid impact would occur around the time of the Jewish Day of Atonement in 2015, that is, on September 23-24, 2015."
A conspiracy theorist, who uses the online name Lyn Leahz, has done more than any other lately to reignite the hysteria over an imminent asteroid impact apocalypse. According to Leahz, astronomers have secretly detected a 2.5-mile-wide asteroid or comet that will hit Earth between September 15 and September 28.
The message, posted under the headline "Confirmed-2.5 Mile Wide Comet Headed Toward Earth with Chilling, Hellish Mystery Sounds and Screams," first appeared on Before It's News a few days ago, with a photo of the doomsday prophet.
The dates, Sept. 15 and Sept. 28, are considered significant in conspiracy theory and eschatological circles. September 15 coincides with the end of the Jade Helm exercises which conspiracy theorists claim is the dress rehearsal for the imposition of NWO martial law.
September 15 also comes two days after the September 13, 2015, end of the seven-year Jewish cycle known as the shemitah.
Conspiracy theorists and Judeo-Christian eschatologists are pointing out to believers that the September 13 partial solar eclipse that will occur in the southern hemisphere ahead of the blood moon lunar eclipse of September 28, is a sign that world-changing events will happen in September, 2015.
The blood moon lunar eclipse of Sept. 28, 2015, is the fourth and last of the ongoing tetrad of blood moon eclipses.
Influential Christian and Jewish eschatology preachers, such as Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of the best-selling books The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah, have been predicting major world changing events in connection with the 2015 shemitah. The predictions are more influential in Judeo-Christian eschatological circles than is generally realized by outsiders and have helped to lend credibility to the otherwise unrelated asteroid impact apocalypse doomsday fear mongering.
Cahn is quoted as having commented about the shemitah at a recent prophetic conference in Orlando, Florida, saying that it would usher in the collapse of the U.S. economy.
"I will state a warning which I have stated before. Whether it comes in this time parameter of the Shemitah or the year following or not, I believe a great shaking is going to come to this land and to the world that will involve the collapsing of the American economy... and the removal of its blessings and prosperity."The immense influence of such "prophecies" gives insight into why seemingly wild speculations about an imminent asteroid catastrophe are gaining traction.
According to the various versions of the asteroid impact apocalypse theory, the U.S. government, allied Western European nations and other major industrial nations, are aware of the impending catastrophe.
Lean Leahz claims that world governments have been preparing quietly, moving and testing missile arsenals in the hope that it might be possible to fire them at the approaching asteroid and break it up to avoid catastrophe.
"So when the economy collapses in September following the ending of the Shemitah cycle (September 13th), shortly thereafter, the comet, according to my source, will be making its fiery-tailed appearance.According to conspiracy theorists, if the nations are unable to break up the asteroid, the impact will trigger an Extinction Level Event (ELE), leading to a nuclear winter, "darkness, death of vegetation and animals, crops, food supply, starvation."
"This event [asteroid catastrophe] will be the final blow (literally) which throws us into the tribulation. Does that mean the tribulation will immediately begin? No! It will happen over a period of months, I would assume… probably sometime in March of 2016 when the Antichrist will be revealed to the world."
