It's funny, but if you asked most Christians they might tell you that the Bible says nothing about an asteroid hitting us. Prophecy is just not their strong suite nor have most Christians read the entire Bible cover to cover. So they rely on what they hear about prophecy in sermons at church, which is not much.
Nevertheless, the last book of the Bible does have a lot of information on asteroids and other celestial objects threatening Earth. It says we'll be hit, not just by one asteroid, but by enough meteorites to cause all the grass on Earth to be burned up. You can read about this in Revelation 6-8.
When will it happen? It does not say right there, but the Bible does give you plenty of clues on when it happens in relation to Daniel's 70th week and Armageddon. From this you can even figure out what years this can happen, and which years it absolutely cannot. I've put these clues together and explaiined the timing in my book Planet X in Bible Prophecy (renamed Know the Future) for those who are interested.
Every time one of these asteroids is discovered to be passing close by, like 2004 XP14 on July 3, 2006, we might consider them as shots across the bow. God may be trying to remind us to read our Bibles more and prepare ourselves so that we might be able to escape all these things and stand before the Son of Man.

An Ipsos poll found that 25% of adults believed it was at least "somewhat likely" that "Jesus Christ will return to Earth" in the coming year. Among white evangelical Christian adults surveyed, a whopping 46% believed this. Now six years after that poll in 2006 Jesus still has not returned. Why not? Want to know why Jesus did not come in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, or 2012 as so many expected—and still won’t come in 2013? The reason has to do with several overlooked prerequisites to the rapture, until which the “end is not yet” according to Jesus. Read Featured Article
