What is Nibiru?
What is Nibiru?
Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is a rogue planet that comes into our orbit around every 3607 years. It takes 3607 years for it to complete one orbit of the sun. (According to ancient civilizations’ calculations). Its path is elliptical so it will come nearer to earth, and other planets, before pulling away again. This results in a stronger magnetic pull as it approaches our earth or other planets. So, will cause disruption: earthquakes, tidal waves, (now called tsunamis), volcano eruptions, etc.
Certain groups declared the Mayans had predicted the world will end. A great catastrophe is to be the result. December the 21st 2012 was the date. Well, it didn’t happen, and another thing, the Mayans never predicted it either. The date refers to the end of their calendar, not the end of the world. The date was the end of their calendar cycle of 5126 years. They believed that after this date a new cycle would begin.
Where is Nibiru?
Lots of renowned astronomers have hinted at the idea of an unknown planet. A planet orbiting far beyond Pluto. Disrupting the orbits of the two giant planets of Neptune and Uranus. It’s modern day name is Planet X or the 10th planet. By counting the planets in our solar system, but not counting the sun or moon, equals nine plus Planet X equals ten. A report referring to Planet X published in the New York Times on June19th 1982.
There are many stories of NASA knowing about It but keeping It out of the media to save wide spread panic. Well, that’s not a very convincing case. How do you cover up a planet entering our orbit that is many times larger than our earth? Many astronomers will pick it up when it gets closer, indeed some say they already have. There have been pictures printed on the INTERNET from the 2012 date. Calculated to be the closest to earth. It would have been moving further away from earth. If the date is correct. It would head to outer orbit again.
With this in mind. It takes 3607 years to complete one orbit of the sun. It has been heading towards earth for over a thousand years or more. This affects the disruption to earth’s magnetic pull for many years. It will continue to be so until Planet X is out of reach again.
The end of the world
2012 was the date predicted to be the end of the world, December 21st. Of course, it never happened and why would it have? Nibiru (Planet X) is on an orbit around the sun, and has been traveling on this orbit for centuries, thousands of years even. Would it break away and head for earth? If so, why? Wouldn’t it be more understandable if it keeps following its path of orbit? The destruction that it caused in ancient times was because of the magnetic influences it had to earth. Widespread disasters, earthquakes, tidal waves, volcano eruptions etc. Isolation was a factor to consider with ancient civilizations. A tidal wave could wipe out an entire community, tribe or civilization.
Zecharia Sitchin and Nibiru
Who was Zecharia Sitchin? Born in Azerbaijan on the 11th of July 1920 and died on the 9th of October 2010.
Sitchin wrote many books on ancient Sumerian and Babylonian history. He also wrote of the planet Nibiru. But some regarded him as delusional, for his references to extra-terrestrials’ and their connection with humanity. Also, because of his belief in ancient astronauts.
In 1976 he published a book on his ancient astronaut theory entitled the 12th Planet. This was the first of a series of books on the ‘alien’ theme. The title ‘The Twelfth Planet’ was so called because of the Sumerians’ way of counting the planets. They counted the sun, moon and Pluto and the other eight then known planets. This made eleven plus Nibiru equals twelve.
Sitching proposed that the planet Nibiru was where the Anunnaki came from. A race of aliens that visited earth in ancient times. This was when Mesopotamia and Summaria were great civilizations back in history. He believed that the gods of that time were aliens and worshiped as gods.
He spoke of Nibiru as an undiscovered planet. One that follows an elliptical orbit beyond Neptune and orbits every 3600 years. He referred to it as Nibiru or Marduk. Marduk being a Sumerian God. He stated that these extra-terrestrials could be the Nephilim as spoke of in Genesis in the bible. This cannot be true as it states in the bible who the Nephilim are and their origins. More on that later.
His theory is, the Alien race (The Anunnaki) visited earth at the time the ancient Sumerians were prominent. He proposed they were searching for gold to take back with them. Thus, needed to sustain life on Nibiru and needed slave Labour to mine it here on earth. The slave race is humankind that the Anunnaki had colonized and controlled.
Nibiru and the Bible
Nephilim. It states in the bible: the Nephilim were a race of giants that came about when angels mingled and bred with humans. The resulting offspring were a breed of hybrids know as Nephilim. So, we can rule out the Nephilim as coming from another planet as they were born on earth.
Another theory was that Noah’s flood of the bible was the effect of Nibiru. The last time it passed earth. This can’t be true either, as the dates don’t add up. The Mayan civilization started in 3113 BC. According to calculations, based on the Mayan calendar. From 3113 BC to 2012 AD, this adds up to 5125 years, the number of years in a cycle of the Mayan calendar. The Mayans believed the universe moved in cycles of 5125 years.
Noah’s flood, as stated in the scriptures, was 1656 AM (Anno Mundi, the years after creation) which is around 2344 BC. If Nibiru was the closest to earth in 2012, and it comes to this point every 3607 years. Then that would put the last visit to 1595 BC. This differs by 749 years between that and the biblical calculations of Noah’s flood.
Some people like to link catastrophes with bible prophesy. They have compared Nibiru to end-time events as spoken of in the book of Revelation. referring to wormwood in Chapter 8 verses 10 and 11. This again is false. The wormwood of the bible hasn’t been before. There is no recollection of it passing earth. neither documented in ancient history nor in biblical scripture.
Revelation 8 verses 10 &11: The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter.
This doesn’t sound like a planet orbiting earth. It’s more descriptive of a meteor or comet hitting the earth, causing destruction but not total desolation. This would be an object much smaller than earth. If a planet, such as described as Nibiru, many times larger than earth, collided with earth. Then it would smash and scatter about the universe. So, the Wormwood in Revelation cannot be Nibiru either.
Nibiru by another name.
As we have seen, references to Nibiru has various names. Such as the 12th planet, the 10th planet, Planet X, the destroyer, Apollyon, Abaddon and many more.
Revelation chapter 9 verse 11 reads: They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.
Some takes this as referring to Satan; the fallen angel, the destroyer, the angel of the abyss. But it is open to interpretation, it doesn’t link to Nibiru.
