On several occasions in his life Tom has had what he calls “supernatural experiences,” in which God told him things that would take place. For instance, in 2010, Tom says God told him that Pope Benedict would resign in April, 2012, which came to pass (though it wasn’t official until February, 2013). The most recent such experience took place in early 2019: Tom woke from a terrifying dream state, having seen a massive asteroid hurtling toward Earth, and hordes of people crying out for deliverance.  The asteroid plunged into the Pacific Ocean, setting off massive tsunamis, hurricanes, and tornadoes – “atmospheric annihilation,” as he terms it.  When he awoke, he said the word “Apophis” came to him almost as if a voice had spoken it.  He later found the word was the name of an Egyptian dragon, meaning “enemy of light.”  Having studied end-times prophecy at length, Tom linked that message to what he’d read in Revelation 8:10:

“The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.”

The star named Wormwood, he believes, is the asteroid he saw in his vision.    

Further research revealed that in 2004, NASA identified a gigantic NEO (near-Earth object), or asteroid, and named it – Apophis (pronounced: ah POF iss).  Tom cites a number of startling statistics about the asteroid:  It’s currently 1200 ft across (the width of four NFL football fields), weighs 20 million metric tons, and is travelling at 28,000 mph.  He says that consumer-grade telescopes will be able to see it in 4-5 years, and after that, it will be visible to the naked eye.

“Yes,” Tom says without hesitation. He bases his position on conversations with a friend at NASA and information gathered by physicist Nathan Myhrvold, both of whom believe that the data support the outcome that Apophis will impact Earth.  NASA’s website states that they expect a “near miss” of Apophis on April 13, 2029, with the asteroid remaining 18,000 miles away. Having talked with two astronomers at NASA, Tom says they called that statement  the agency’s official word, but not reality.  They told him their study of the asteroid, its gravitational field, etc. indicate something so massive that it could neither miss Earth, nor be destroyed or mitigated.  The impact of something that large, he says, would unleash a blast the equivalent of a billion tons of TNT (greater than 65,000 bombs the size of those dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima during WWII).  Tom says his NASA friend was originially quoted in The Wormwood Prophecy until someone at the agency learned of it, threatened him, and demanded he have the quote removed. In order to avoid alarming the public and stirring up chaos, Tom says the space agencies are keeping the truth quiet, while working to mitigate the asteroid behind the scenes. He refers to President Trump’s new space force program as one evidence of the effort to mitigate the asteroid.

Though firm in his conclusions on Apophis, Tom believes all of life is fully within God’s sovereignty. He acknowledges that God may choose to show mercy and overrule what now appears certain.  Referring to the Bible accounts of Jonah and Joel, amongst others which warn people to repent, Tom points out there is certainly precedence for God demonstrating mercy over judgment.  His advice is clearly seen in the concluding words of his book:  “If you would be so inclined to trust in the Lord at this time, I invite you to pray with me now…”
