This is the Second Coming Watch Sunday Roundup for June 8, 2014. On the Roundup we feature the top 10 prophecy-related news stories that happened this past week which point towards the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the end of the world as we know it.
1. Pope Francis told Israeli and Palestinian leaders they "must respond" to their people's yearning for peace during an unprecedented prayer meeting among Jews, Christians and Muslims at the Vatican on Sunday. The pope made his vibrant appeal to Israeli President Shimon Peres and his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas at the end of a two-hour evening service in the Vatican gardens, an encounter he hopes will relaunch the Middle East peace process. The pope spoke after Jewish rabbis, Christian cardinals and Muslim Imams read and chanted from the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Koran in Italian, English, Hebrew and Arabic in the first such inter-religious event in the Vatican.
2. A newfound huge asteroid, named “the Beast,” is expected to zoom by Earth on Sunday. The asteroid, which is the size of a football stadium, poses no chance of hitting Earth. Scientists with NASA’s Asteroid Watch program said it is “disconcerting” that an asteroid this large flying so close to the planet was only spotted less than two months before its nearest approach.
3. The Pentagon said that China's military spending exceeded $145 billion last year as it advanced a program modernizing an arsenal of drones, warships, jets, missiles and cyber weapons.
4. Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the border service to reinforce the state border with Ukraine.
