NASA has spotted a record-breaking large comet, known as C/2014 UN271 (Bernardinelli-Bernstein), and is headed in this direction, quickly. Traveling at 22,000 miles per hour, it is moving from the edge of the solar system, toward the center. There are many signs in the sky that could indicate we are on a collision course with some sort of apocalyptic world collision. Could this be the celestial object, Wormwood, as mentioned in the Holy Bible? Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with Dr. Sky about WORMWOOD – THE FALL OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD. 


There has been a viral image that has been making its way through the internet of a dark trail that smeared across the skies of Alaska. The anomaly has sparked a lot of speculation as to what may have left it behind. Meteorologists were quick to say that it was a contrail left behind by a plane–while others have said that it was a trail left behind by a spent rocket –or perhaps it is what is left of an exploding meteor.

Of course, the mainstream media has said that the anomaly has sparked conspiracy theories — but again they use the term conspiracy theory in a way that maligns those who have an idea that is contrary to the official story.

Meanwhile, in central Oregon, there was a similar photo that made the rounds on the internet — but this time it wasn’t just a single dark trail that can be easily explained as a chemtrail or contrail but several dark trails that appeared to be similar to tentacles or serpents coming down from the sky as if something exploded in the upper atmosphere sending debris down over an unpopulated area.

We all know that near-earth objects usually burn up in the atmosphere when they come down and they leave behind trails of debris, however, some are very dangerous when they arrive — and this has always been a concern.

The largest impact event in recorded history is the 12-megaton aerial explosion near the Tunguska river in Siberia on 30 June 1908,

There was also the exploding meteorite that was sighted above Chelyabinsk which caused property damage and industry — it was brighter than the sun when it exploded and left a huge dark trail for miles.

But those events were pebbles compared to the one that wiped out the dinosaurs in the Cretaceous-Paleogene  extinction event 66 million years ago.

Some say it was a huger asteroid –while others claim that it was a comet that brought with it the building blocks for new life –and with the aid of panspermia seeded the earth with what eventually became human beings.

Studies of the Cretaceous-Paleogene  events say that what hit the planet was a six-to-nine-mile-wide object making landfall with an estimated force of 100 million megatons, .

No one could even fathom what could happen if something that big came at us again.

The blast waves would level everything within a radius of several hundred miles while triggering earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. Worse, the impact would excavate a crater several miles deep, flinging billions of tons of rock, dust and Sulphur halfway to the moon.

Heavier objects would burn up on re-entering the atmosphere and create a lethal meteor shower, igniting firestorms. Smaller debris would form a thick, sun-blocking cloud around the planet, plunging it into a year-long “impact winter”. Vegetation would perish within weeks and most animal life within months – if not from starvation then from sulfuric rain as corrosive as battery acid or UV radiation pouring through the shredded ozone layer. The Earth’s surface would cease to sustain life.

The oceans would become acidic.

Comets and asteroids are interchangeable in impact fiction, and with good reason. Both are stray bits of rubble left over from the formation of the solar system. A comet is a globe of ice, rock, dust and gas, originating in the outer solar system. When comets pass the sun, they shed a trail of gas and debris, hence the tail.

Nasa has spotted a record-breaking large comet headed nearer to Earth.

Its icy nucleus is bigger than any ever seen – measuring around 80 miles across, and 50 times bigger than the heart of most known comets. It is also thought to have a mass of about 500 trillion tons – a hundred thousand times more massive than the typical comet found closer to the Sun.

And the object, known as C/2014 UN271 (Bernardinelli-Bernstein), is headed in this direction, quickly. Travelling at 22,000 miles per hour, it is moving from the edge of the solar system towards its the center.

The comet will not get closer than a billion miles from the Sun – further away even than the planet Saturn – and that will not happen until 2031.

The object has been known about since November 2010, at which point it was 3 billion miles from the Sun or the distance to Neptune.

I always wonder why NASA seems to not be so forthcoming when Near Earth Objects pass by — could it be that they really don’t want us to look up and realize  that there are many signs in the sky that could indicate that we are on a collision course with some sort of apocalyptic world collision?

As usual in times of apocalyptic thinking we are hearing over and over again that what we are witnessing is “the beginning of the end.”  However, one must put into perspective just how long “the end “supposedly can last if launched.

There have been many extinction level events on planet earth and while many people expect an event to happen that completely wipes out the human and animal life on the earth, the process may take several thousands of years to happen.

It has been theorized that 20 thousand years ago human beings started their own extinction and the extinction of plant and animal life with the result of the industrial age and now with the radiation that has been released from nuclear bombs and nuclear power plants like Fukushima.

We have been at this a long time, however now the thought is that we are speeding up the process and that perhaps the things we take for granted may disappear and when it does we will  have a dose of reality that will indicate that it is either time to leave the earth or prepare to adapt to the harsh conditions that will come with changes from within the earth and outside the earth.

We can downplay the cycles of near earth impacts because we believe we are safe on this planet however the cycles of planet earth and the cosmic cycles are beginning to reveal that we are now in the middle of a remarkable time.  We are now living in times where environmental changes will take place and that the so called signs of heaven will fulfill that which has been called prophecy for years.

Whatever the future might be, the echo of its thunder is rumbling into the present. We are in a transitory state where science will have to acknowledge that much of what they have stated as fact is in reality some shaky illusion we have hung on to.

In the Book of Revelation, the star, Wormwood is connected to a celestial event that is predicted to poison large numbers of people. “Wormwood” is the name of a star in Revelation 8:10-11 where we read :

“The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water—the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.” This is the third of the “trumpet judgments” described in Revelation.

The seven trumpets are the judgments of the seventh seal. The first trumpet causes hail and fire that destroy much of the plant life in the world. The second trumpet brings about what seems to be a meteor, comet, or other heavenly body hitting the oceans and causing the death of one-third of the world’s sea life–This can be found in Revelation 8:8-9. The third trumpet is similar to the second, except it affects the world’s lakes and rivers instead of the oceans. It will cause a third part of all fresh water on earth to turn bitter and many people will die from drinking it.

The word “wormwood” is mentioned only in the New Testament apocalypse, but it appears eight times in the Old Testament, each time associated with bitterness, poison and death.

The Revelation is about impure water and what may be impurities brought to the earths waters following an object or objects falling to earth from space.

The Revelation passage may not be saying that the star falling to the earth will actually be called Wormwood by the inhabitants of the earth.

Rather, wormwood was a well-known bitter herb in the Bible times, it was known as Absinth which was used to kill intestinal worms. It also has hallucinogenic properties when consumed. it is usually filtered through a sugar cube because of its bitterness.

So by naming the star Wormwood, we are told that its effect will be to embitter the waters of the earth, so much so that the water is undrinkable. It won’t be a matter of simply a bitter taste to the water; it will literally be poisonous.

If drinking water is unavailable to one third of the earth’s population, it’s easy to see how chaos and terror will result. Humans can only survive a couple of days without water, and the inhabitants of the affected areas will be so desperate as to actually drink the poisoned water, causing the death of thousands, if not millions of people.

Now that the war in Ukraine is part of the zeitgeist — so is the idea that Chernobyl the nuclear powerplant in Ukraine somehow is part of this revelation.

Chernobyl is the Ukrainian word for wormwood. Thus some people regard that prophecy has already come to pass.

But with all due respect — those who cling to this idea have fallen victim to a communist misinformation campaign.

I always wince when people tell me this because while it is true that Chernobyl is the Ukrainian equivalent to Wormwood — I know the origins of how tis so called knowledge came to be — it was literally a   Russian Atheist’s way of mocking western fascination with the apocalypse.

A prominent Russian writer produced a tattered old Bible and with a practiced hand turned to Revelations. ”Listen,” he said, ”this is incredible:

He read the scripture :  ‘And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.’ ”

In a dictionary, he showed the Ukrainian word for wormwood, a bitter wild herb used as a tonic in rural Russia: Chernobyl.

The writer, an atheist, was hardly alone in pointing out the apocalyptic reference to the star called Chernobyl. With the uncanny speed common to rumor in the Soviet Union, the discovery had spread across the Soviet land, contributing to the swelling body of folklore that has shaped the public consciousness of the disaster at the Chernobyl atomic power plant in the Ukraine.

Some biblical interpreters and scholars believe that the Wormwood will appear in the seven years of the reign of the antichrist. This is also known as the 70th week of Daniel. This is only one of the natural disasters in the seven trumpets that will usher in the rise of the Antichrist to world power very quickly.

Today is April 13th, 2022 and in seven years from today a massive asteroid will get closer to earth than some of our satellites.

On April 13, 2029—the “Potentially Hazardous Asteroid” called Apophis will pass inside the orbits of our geosynchronous satellites. That’s about 23,000 miles/from Earth’s surface.

That’s close.– too close.

Apophis is enormous. Discovered in 2005, it’s about 1,100 feet in diameter. That’s about as tall as the Empire State Building.

Scientists are saying that it won’t hit us — they say that now, but some 30 years ago they weren’t so sure.  Today though they are saying that there is a possibility  that the effect on it of the close pass could be to alter its trajectory—and dangerously so. It’s possible that Earth swing-by could put it on an Earth-resonant impact trajectory that come 2060 or 2068.

Some scientists believe we should launch some sort of defense system to nudge the asteroid out of our way– so that it clearly not hit us — but like the moves we have seen — we may just have to wait and allow the prophecy of Chicken little come true.

If there’s even a small chance that Apophis could be nudged into a new trajectory it could still hit us in 7 years or pass over us creating major cataclysms on earth.

When it comes to information regarding big rocks hitting the earth and putting us in danger NASA lives by its never straight answer pose — and a recent story proves the point even more.

In a newly-released memo, The Pentagon confirmed that the first known Interstellar Object on Earth confirmed that an object from another star system crashed into Earth in 2014,

The meteor ignited in a fireball in the skies near Papua New Guinea, the memo states, and scientists believe it possibly sprinkled interstellar debris into the South Pacific Ocean contaminating the the water for miles.

That was over 7 years ago.

In a 2014 Ground Zero show called, THE FALL OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD we reported that the earth was hit by a large meteor and that NASA had covered it up.

The meteorite named 2014 AA  was spotted heading towards earth. NASA  did not warn us if it’s possible impact because as it traversed the North Atlantic it allegedly exploded in mid air.  What followed was a series of earthquakes and a number of fireball reports near Puerto Rico. There were at least 32 earthquakes reported days after the fireball exploded and the Space telescope at Arecibo was closed to the public for five days.

An anonymous source from the island reported that the Space telescope was closed not only for inspection, but it also was closed because there was a meeting of scientists there and that they were observing an anomaly in space that needed to be kept secret.

In fact we reported that the planet could have experienced a bombardment of various space rocks because there were numerous reports of fireballs being seen all over the globe including a massive fireball near Papua New Guinea.

Infrasound detectors designed to listen for nuclear bomb detonations actually heard the explosion from the impact of 2014 AA and were able to pinpoint the location of the event to a few hundred kilometers east off the coast of Venezuela.

On January 19th, 2014 a week after a 6.9 earthquake was felt in Puerto Rico there were more fireball reports up and down the eastern seaboard and the Caribbean. The fireballs were reported as “extremely bright” from several towns including San Juan, Arecibo, Ponce and Aguadilla. News Organizations were able to capture images through cameras that capture the sky from San Juan and the area west of the Island. CCTV cameras revealed that the bombardment looked so intense that saturated the entire area some claiming the flares were brighter than the sun.

In 2013, it was reported that the fireball that exploded over Russia was 30 times brighter than the sun.

According to one of the reports published in the journal Science, the meteor over Chelyabinsk created a 500-kiloton explosion about 20 miles above the surface that caused sunburn, shattered windows, and knocked out both electricity and cell phone service.

There is evidence in the footage that there was also a ground to sky plasma discharge as it came into the atmosphere. This may account for the huge explosion. It is almost as if the Earth is a huge bug zapper and an electrical charge comes up from the earth and zaps the intruder.

This chaos was happening and while a lot of NASA scientists called the falling debris harmless– they now say that these anomalies especially the interstellar debris affected the Pacific ocean and probably areas of the North Atlantic.

In biblical parlance we often hear that before any major earth event there are signs and wonders in the night sky. The world has seen an increase in ‘unidentified aerial phenomena’ and large ‘Near Earth Objects’ have fallen into the atmosphere giving spectacular light shows. It is also noted that within the so-called time frame of the ancient texts there is mention of a “falling star” or a “fallen star” known as Wormwood. Wormwood is supposed to pollute the heavens and the seas.

There have been several interpretations as to what Wormwood is.

However, if you look to the specific definition of the anomaly it is solely connected to a major event in or from space that signifies a tremendous spiritual change on the planet.

If you look into the Biblical dictionary interpretation you will find that the term Wormwood from the times of the Old writings always is used to denote a significant ecclesiastical change coinciding with a heavenly sign. Literally translated, it means a number of things, first it denotes the power of the “lords” of the air, second the instrument or tool for change.

According to concordance biblical definition, we see that during the falling of Wormwood there will be sore judgments on large numbers of people because of the fall of a good shepherd, or a mighty prince or leader.

Wormwood has a connection to the star Betelgeuse. The name Betelgeuse is actually Arabic word meaning ‘The Chosen One’ and in Babylon it means ‘The Heavenly Shepherd’.

The fall of Betelgeuse — and a star the size of a mountain called Wormwood is a signal that the Antichrist is about to take power — now it gets even more bizarre when you realize that in 2012 it was reported the Betelgeuse was about to or has gone supernova and that it would take 70 years before we see the bright flash in the sky.

Meanwhile, a star called M82 went supernova above Ursa Major and will be brilliant in the sky for several weeks. Science is marveling at the event while those who are seeing it as a portent are warning that the supernova is a sign that is an omen to predatory behaviors on planet earth, along with major financial hardship, famine and even sickness.

The M82 galaxy or cigar galaxy is very active with x-rays and radio waves.. M82 is also connected or influenced by nearby galaxy M81 which produced a supernova about 40 years ago.

These events produce gamma ray bursts that last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes–Gamma bursts can bend our magnetic field and if at any time one is too big and powerful it could literally wipe out our existence.

High energy explosions in space are fascinating as well as very telling with regard to how science is still trying to understand how their classic models are all beginning to fall apart.

It is with this bit of truth that I wonder sometimes if our scientists are literally unable to keep is abreast of all that is active and dangerous in the skies above us.

    Clyde, I just wanted to let you know that I have been listening since 2012, and you have the best show to ever please the airwaves. I look forward everynight to listen. Keep up the awesome work.

    Tom Horn’s “The Messenger,” posits asteroid Apophis is the “Wormwood” mountain that plunges into the sea at the mid-point of the Tribulation, as revealed in Revelation. Under that scenario, a pre-Trib Rapture can occur no later than the fall of 2025. It could, however, occur at any time like “a thief in the night ” as it has no preceding requirements in scripture.

    The human magnetic field looks the same as the earth’s magnetic field. The percentage of water in a human is also very similar to the amount covering the earth. Tonic water contains the bitter substance thujone. Its used to get rid of parasites. Mugwort tea also contained thujone and is a great sedative, its drunk before bed to help with astral traveling. The fallen star wormwood could be medicine for the earth.
