Can the collision of two stars trigger the most important biblical prophecy ever? Rabbi Yosef Berger of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion has stated that when the messiah makes an appearance, he will be accompanied by one or more stars. This ambiguous comment has led many to conclude that the upcoming cosmic event in 2022 will signal the arrival of Jesus Christ.
The Creation Of ‘Red Nova’
In a rare cosmic event, two stars will collide with each other, creating the so-called “Red Nova,” 5 years from now. This prediction was made by Calvin College Astronomer Larry Molnar at the American Astronomical Society. Furthermore, the collision will lead to an enormous burst of energy, boosting its brightness up to 10,000 times.
As a result, for a brief period of six months, it will become the brightest object in the sky, visible to the naked eye. The blast itself, however, would not be perceptive without the proper equipment. This phenomenon will be known as “Red Nova.”
If the prediction comes true, it would be regarded as the first cosmic collision ever to be predicted by an astronomer. According to Molnar, the collision in question has already happened. But since it has taken place 1,800 million light years away, its impact would take five years to reach the Earth.
“This is not a birth of a star by normal means. This is starting with two, already existing, stars. And as they have evolved over time the two stars have come close to each other,” Molnar said.
The Jewish Prophecy Is Vague?
As it turns out, the Jewish prediction of Jesus Christ gracing our planet corresponds with that of the cosmic collision. “The Rambam [the ancient Rabbi Moses ben Maimon] brings this verse about a star appearing as proof that the Messiah will come one day,” said Rabbi Berger, reported Express. An ancient Jewish literature that Berger references, does speak of the stepping forward of “a star out of Yakov.” It also mentions “a scepter” that rises “out of Yisrael” that, along with the star, smites “the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of Seth.”
Other than the vague evidence, the biblical prediction has not been tied in any way to the prediction of the cosmic collision. Matt Walhout, a dean at Calvin College has joked, however, that if the two predictions do happen to come true at the same time, then parents would be able to tell their kids, “Watch, kids, there’s a star hiding in there, but soon it’s going to light up,” reported RT.
