"Planet X in Bible Prophecy" Excerpts

Read these excerpts from the chapters of my book, "Planet X in Bible Prophecy"

By Tim McHyde

Chapter 1 ~ Scientific Support

A few months after I first heard about Planet X from my friend, I received an email from a past computer programming client of mine.  I had done project for him four years earlier and ever since then he would still encounter problems and ask for my free support.  This was because I had hastily agreed to unlimited free support on the application that I wrote for him (forgetting that software always stays in use much longer than the writers ever imagined).  But, a deal is a deal and I did not want to break my word and have to face my conscience afterwards.  So I looked at his problem, quickly found a solution and emailed back the instructions for the fix. 

Finally, A Scientist Warning About Planet X

I noticed in his email that he had a new website for his enterprise.  So I checked it out and something interesting caught my eye.  He had a link on his site to an interview with some scientist, James M. McCanney, on the subject of Planet X.  I had never heard of him, but in listening I learned that he was a real scientist with real credentials saying that Planet X was real and that NASA has been aware of this for 30 years.

I studied McCanney's website and every radio show interview by him that I could find.  I was happy to find that he provided answers for all the questions and doubts I had concerning Planet X, which we shall cover in this chapter.  However, the goal of this chapter is not to prove scientifically that Planet X is real, but only to explain why NASA and others you would expect to warn you about it are not doing so, and what evidence we do have for its existence from NASA and other sources.  In fact, if you take the time to look there is a lot of evidence available which I will only briefly summarize here.  I want to address the main objections for believing in a Planet X threat and then move on to the important things that Scripture says for dealing with that threat which are not covered in other books.

Why is NASA Silent On Planet X?

NASA seems to be silent about Planet X.  They certainly are not warning anyone to prepare for its passage.  If you did not know any better you would conclude from this alone that Planet X is a hoax.  However, the fact is that NASA was the first to announce the discovery of Planet X, back in 1980s as reported in the June 19, 1982 edition of the New York Times:

Something out there beyond the furthest reaches of the known solar system is tugging at Uranus and Neptune. A gravitational force keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits. The force suggests a presence far away and unseen, a large object, the long-sought Planet X. Astronomers are so certain of this planet's existence that they have already named it "Planet X - the 10th Planet."

Apparently the announcement of the discovery was a slip because within a week they retracted it and have been publicly silent ever since.  Yet, there is sufficient evidence that they have had an internal project tracking Planet X as this NASA internal document records:

The observation of the region of the sky in which it is believed Planet X should now be, based on perturbations observed in the motions of Uranus and Neptune, was determined, and there was no reason to update that determination. A limited area of that region was photographed, and that will be continued. A given area is photographed with the twin 20 cm astrograph in New Zealand on two successive nights near the time that area is in opposition, and these plates are blinked in Washington to identify anything that has moved. The predicted region is in the south, which requires observations from a southern station, and it is in opposition in the April to June period, which means observations have not yet started for the year. Blinking will be done as soon as the plates are received in Washington. - http://adsabs.harvard.edu

If Planet X is really coming and NASA has been watching it for years, one would naturally want to know why they are not talking about it?  James McCanney has dealt closely with NASA during his career and can explain why this is.  He claims this is because NASA is under congressional order not to tell anybody if they discover a doomsday scenario coming-the same edict that restrains public officials from telling the public of an impending disaster and causing a panic.  It has to go out through some official channel if it goes out at all.  If this is true, then in light of NASA's demonstrated knowledge of Planet X, its more frightening that they have been silent about it than if they had continued to update the public since their initial discovery!  This indicates to me that they know its passing will not be harmless like Comet Hale Bopp's was seven years ago (which follows a similar orbit and is thought by McCanney to have been part of Planet X's entourage at one time.)

Why Don't We See It?

If we accept that NASA knows about Planet X but will not tell us because of national security issues, what about the amateur astronomers and institutions of other countries who are not restricted in that way?  Why are they not reporting Planet X?  The problem, according to McCanney, is that Planet X's lack of brightness and position make it hard to see.  Its current location makes it visible only in the Spring, rather than all year round.  But even then you have to be on the right place on earth because of Planet X's skewed elliptical orbit.  McCanney claims that it actually approaches our solar system from below the ecliptic (plane of the planets' orbits) meaning the best viewing is from the Southern Hemisphere which is mostly water and less densely populated.  McCanney comments on this in writing about the above Harrington abstract:

In 1991 Robert S. Harrington, head of the Naval Observatory, Washington, D.C. wrote an internal Abstract which culminated over a decade of theoretical and observational astronomy with a team of experts.  He was in charge of the NASA directed search for a large planet at the edge of our solar system that had been perturbing the orbits of the outer planets.  Many previous attempts had been made, all leading to incorrect results ... but this time Harrington was certain that he had found the location of the large rogue planet.  What is interesting is 1) NASA for decades had sponsored a search for this object with the highest level staff members available, 2) it was fully aware that something big was entering our solar system and 3) as you will see ... it seems that anyone associated with the results has been silenced either by death or by fear.  A shroud of secrecy and deception surrounds this entire story.

Part of the discovery of Planet X was based on the fact the outer large planets Uranus and Neptune were being pulled DOWN in their orbits.  No other effect could cause such a change in the orbits of these planets except the existence of a very large previously undiscovered celestial object which had to exist down and in the direction of the unexplainable motions of these outer giant planets.  Harrington knew that it had to be BIG and it had to be down below the plane of the planets (the ecliptic).  He also knew that since it had not been there before that it must be a new body entering the solar system.  

Harrington wrote a brief abstract telling of his final trip scheduled to New Zealand in the Spring month of May to perform the blink photographic session with a 20 cm astrograph (approximately 8" aperture high precision camera).  This seemed like what should be a routine observation and so sure was Harrington of the location of this object in the sky that he planned only two successive nights for the two required photos.  These would be returned to Washington to determine the location and size of the new object.

An 8" camera in 1991 to 93 (the date that we believe Harrington made his final expedition ... NASA information is scarce) was not very large so we are not talking about professional grade equipment ... that is, this object was expected to be very large and Harrington knew it would be only visible during the month of May from a very southerly remote location on Earth.  He chose New Zealand over the rugged uncharted regions of Patagonia in South America.  - www.JMcCanneyScience.com

So a big reason why Planet X is not obvious to the world already is because it is best viewed close to the South Pole-where there are fewer people and fewer observatories to find it.  But even now as I write this in April, McCanney reports another problem.  There is much haze in the atmosphere that makes viewing a diffuse, dim object like Planet X hard to do unless you are looking directly at it from a 90 degree angle (only possible from the South Pole itself).  All this, in conjunction with the science establishment's coverup gives Planet X the conditions needed to sneak up on the majority of earth's inhabitants.

Even someone from NASA has admitted the possibility of being blindsided.  David Morrison, Director of Space & Astrobiology at NASA's Ames Research Center has spoken before Congress on the threat of cosmic impacts.  He writes:

It is possible for a comet to 'sneak up' on Earth, escaping detection until it is only a few weeks from impact. A perpetual survey is required to detect long-period comets, and even with such a survey we cannot be sure of success-Comets and Origin, P.254:

But even if the general population without big telescopes nor accessibility to the South Pole are not able to observe Planet X, Russia appears to have become convinced Planet X is real and a threat:

The following story was released on September 13th, 2000 by Andrei Shukshin of Reuters news service. "Russia's Parliamentary leaders and President Vladimir Putin agreed Wednesday to embark on a three-year crash course to thwart what they said was an anticipated chain of disasters due to hit the country in 2003. "(These are) issues of extraordinary importance, strategic issues which may degenerate into a serious threat for the existence,...I want to stress this-for the existence of Russia," former Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov told reporters." - http://www.detailshere.com/letters1.htm

A group of scientists in Russia in the year 2000 held several meetings to discuss the inbound planet discovered from one of their largest observatories.  This led to the infamous "2003 Problem" which the Reuters News Service wire reported on Sept. 13th 2000. The top government officials of Russia called for a commission to study the problem which was said to expect to cause "a string of calamities" and "a massive population shrinkage."  They openly wondered whether Russia would still even exist as a country afterwards. Why? Because most of the old Soviet Union is fairly low-lying land, and the polar ice caps will melt during these next 2 years causing the new sea level to be around  700 feet above what it is now, and most of the old Soviet Union, including much of Russia, will be under water. - http://www.detailshere.com/nasainsider.htm

Obviously the 2003 timing was inaccurate, but that has always been considered only "the earliest timeframe" that Planet X could arrive, not a date etched in stone.

What Evidence Is There?

In spite of NASA's coverup and difficulty of an observation, McCanney explains that there is quite a bit of evidence pointing to the existence and near passage of  Planet X.

Many have been talking about increased earthquakes since the 1990s.  Although I have not heard McCanney talk about this, one must wonder what is causing this change.  There is a cause for every effect.  Could it be Planet X causing this?  We shall see later from Scripture that great earthquakes will be associated with Planet X's passing.

Because McCanney had not made an observation of Planet X, he refuses to speculate on the timing of  Planet X.  But in his own words, due to the scientific and historical evidence for Planet X, its passage is "not a question of if...but when."

What Will Happen When It Passes?

The odds of Planet X hitting us are remote.  Unfortunately, an impact is not necessary to cause major problems.  Because of the gravity and magnetism of Planet X it will be able to disrupt things on earth from a distance, just as it is allegedly already doing to the solar system.  Here's what McCanney says:

The effects on the Earth are very clear, both from my theoretical work and from what the ancients describe. There are episodes of mountain building. There could be a pole shift caused by a gravitational tidal wave that moves through the surface mantle of the Earth. There would be flooding both from tidal waves of the oceans, tremendous atmospheric storms and also from a huge pollution influx of oil and water -- hydrocarbons and water -- from inner planetary space onto Earth. And all of these things have been seen in the past.

The Bible talks about, for example, when all the vermin, bugs, insects and snakes came out of the ground and overran the Earth. This was a direct result of the electric fields penetrating the mantle of the Earth and causing these creatures to leave the ground and come out of the ground. The atmospheric conditions include the increase in the number of volcanoes going off.

I want to mention  that these planetary objects do not have to come necessarily that close to Earth to cause even dramatic Earth changes. Electrical discharges can occur between the planets even a distance apart. These, in fact, have been measured with NASA satellites where, in the 1990s, we saw incredible electrical discharges flow between Jupiter and Earth, taking out a number of our communication satellites. The scientists at that time were totally puzzled that outer space could do this. They still don't understand the very electrical nature of our solar system. My book explains, in fact, how this works in a theoretical sense, and it also explains in a practical sense the effects it would have on planet Earth. - http://www.detailshere.com/mccanneyinfo.htm

Hopefully the reader can see from what little we have covered of the secular side of Planet X that it demands further consideration, if not merely because it is a potential threat to your way of life.  However, when we hear about dangers like this, we have to be careful to watch our reaction.  Some choose to disbelieve and ignore things that they do not want to accept because they are so horrible.  Sometimes we react to bad news not in disbelief of its reality, but in disbelief that we can do anything about it, also resulting in complacency.  But if you have read this far, you are one of the lucky few to have heard about Planet X early enough to do something to prepare for it.  Do not waste that knowledge.  Keep reading and find out where Scripture talks about Planet X and what to do about it.

Chapter 2 ~ Planet X In the Book of Revelation

As mentioned in Chapter 1, it was only because of my familiarity with the Scriptures that I chose not to ignore the seemingly absurd and unconfirmed rumors of Planet X when I first heard them in 2002. At that time I was already two years into a period of renewed interest in prophecy prompted by my exposure to a new breed of prophecy teachers who emerged at the end of the '90s out of the Messianic and Hebraic Roots movements. Excited by their fresh ideas, I found myself researching, studying, discussing, and thinking about Bible prophecy on a daily basis, leading to a number of new conclusions on the meaning of the prophecies.

One of the things that came out of this research was the conclusion that the four trumpets of Revelation Chapter 8 described an incendiary meteorite storm, an asteroid impacting the ocean, and our atmosphere polluted from volcanic activity with enough dust to block a third of all the light from the Sun, Moon, and stars. While I was not sure what "Wormwood" could be, I was convinced that we would soon find out when all of these things came to pass right before the Feast of Shavuot (late Spring) of the year before the Great Tribulation began. Given this timing, I saw that this would be the trigger event giving rise to the global Beast government also spoken of in Revelation and Daniel.

In other words, before I even heard about Planet X, I was already convinced that a group of one or more cosmic bodies headed our way would be responsible for what Revelation 8 literally described. So as far as I was concerned, if Science world not confirm Planet X's imminent arrival, the Books of Revelation and Daniel already did.

Let's look at where Planet X fits the Book of Revelation, the most important prophetic book in the Bible. Rather than cover the traditional arguments about whether Revelation is literal or only figurative and whether the seals, trumpets and bowls happen sequentially or happen in parallel, we will just jump right in reading it naturally. This is because Planet X so perfectly fits what Revelation literally says, that it can silence these debates forever. The only reason that these old debates have raged for centuries is because no one could conceive until the last days how the details of Revelation Chapters 6 - 8 could literally be fulfilled just as written (in fact it was only in recent times that scientists accepted that catastrophic impacts could happen on Earth). When the facts do not fit our paradigm, there is a tendency to distort them, in this case by rearranging the natural order of events or changing their natural, literal meaning. However, there is no reason to do that once the heretofore missing information about the existence and threat of Planet X is understood.

Chapter 3 ~ How to Understand Prophecy And Its Survival Instructions

As dark as the scenario is that the previous chapters painted, we can take hope in knowing that both Science and Scripture agree that there will be survivors. The question, of course, is how to make sure that you are among them? In life, those who are best prepared for challenges tend to be best able to overcome them. But how does one even begin to prepare for a global catastrophe?

If you research Planet X on the Internet, you will discover that people are preparing by building underground shelters and dome houses and moving to high ground or various spots on Earth considered better for surviving the tidal and crustal waves. Yet, does anyone know for sure in advance which places on Earth will turn out to be safe from everything, or whether their underground shelter or dome will hold up, or how much food they will need to outlast the famine, or whether you will be able to prevent others who are stronger then you from taking any of these things away? Of course the answer is no. Yet because they assume this is the best they can do when facing a difficult situation with a lot of unknowns, they make the best preparations they can guided by limited human knowledge and "hope for the best."

But is this really the best we can do? Is there another approach other than relying on our own finite understanding and our own limited ability? What if we could find out what to do from someone who knows the future in advance and how to solve any problem? Clearly that would be the ideal source to rely on for our survival. God's Word is such a source. If we are familiar with the Scriptures, then we know that God always takes care of his faithful servants in times of trouble. Has God changed in this aspect? He has already assured us on this question:

Mal 3:6 - "I, YHWH, do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed.

Thus, God must have a plan to deliver his servants from the Planet X catastrophe just as he helped Noah and others through other catastrophes. We will see later that Scripture does indeed record his plans to preserve his servants through Planet X, and beyond. There is no need to rely on our own unreliable strength and limited understanding when God has already recorded and preserved his survival plan down to this last generation of the age.

Chapter 4 ~ Our Instructions For Surviving Planet X

Having covered in the last chapter the obstacles to studying, understanding and believing prophecy, we are finally ready to consider the critical things specifically said about surviving Planet X.

We learned in Chapter 2 that Planet X appears to begin troubling the Earth and its inhabitants at the 6th seal:

Rev 6:12-14 (HRV) - 12 And I looked when he opened the sixth seal and there was a great earthquake and the Sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the whole Moon became like blood. 13 And the stars in the sky fell on the Earth, like a fig tree that casts its unripe figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 And heaven was melted as scrolls that are rolled up, and every mountain and every island were moved from their place.

If you study Revelation enough, you will learn that in most cases what we read there was already spoken about elsewhere in the Bible. Only by looking at all these parallel passages together can we understand our instructions properly. The 6th seal bears this out, as we find the same celestial events spoken of by...

(Learn these keys of Jesus in this free article...)

A Reader Comments:

“I've been searching all of my adult life for this kind of wisdom! I have listened to Irvin Baxter for 13 years and the Prophecy Club off and on for the same amount of time. I felt like I only had bits and pieces of the big picture. Then I hit the "wisdom and understanding jackpot" the next night when I typed "Prophecy" into a google search and out of all the sights that were available, I clicked on Tim's site first! It was like God pulled a needle out of a haystack for me in answer to my prayer from the day before!”
