Havoc from the Heavens
We are told in the Bible to expect great heavenly signs which will bring terror, in the period preceding the Coming of God to Judge the earth and inaugurate His Kingdom which will rule over the earth from Jerusalem.
Luke 21:25 “There will be signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men dying of fear, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.” (Events predicted to immediately precede the Coming of Messiah).
Is. 13:13 “Therefore I will make the heavens tremble and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of YHVH Almighty, in the day of his burning anger.”
According to the Prophecies outlined in the Book of Revelations, the fearsome events of Seven Final ‘Trumpets’ bring the final woes over the earth to inaugurate the Kingdom Rule of God over the earth. The first four of these Trumpets, bring events which are related to the activities of ‘heavenly bodies’.
Rev. 8:7 “The first angel blew his Trumpet, and with that, hail and fire mixed with blood were dropped on the earth. (meteor showers, comet debris, electric storms causing death?) a third of the earth was burnt up and a third of all trees and every blade of grass was burnt. The second angel blew his Trumpet, and it was as though a great mountain, all on fire, had been dropped into the sea (parts of the comet, asteroids?). A third of all the living things in the sea were killed, and a third of all ships were destroyed. The third angel blew his Trumpet and a huge star fell from the sky, burning like a ball of fire, and it fell on a third of all rivers and springs. This was the star called Wormwood. … The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were blasted …” (also Amos 8:9 verse 13) “Trouble, trouble trouble for all the people on earth at the sound of the other three trumpets”.
Space storms are created when the Sun erupts, sending charged particles racing outward, an expanding bubble of hot gas called plasma. Refer Solar Cycle / Solar Storms / Coronal Mass Ejections
In 1859, the planet’s defenses were overwhelmed.
Society back then did not notice the storm the way it would today. The telegraph was 15 years old. There were no satellite TV feeds, no automated teller machines relying on orbiting relay stations, and no power grids.
Tsurutani says there will eventually be another one like 1859. “It could very well be even more intense than what transpired in 1859,” he says. “As for when, we simply do not know.”
“In 1859, the technology was quite low in comparison to today’s technology,” Tsurutani said. “However the technology that we rely on today is much more vulnerable.”
A strong storm does its damage in part by inducing currents on power and communication lines, leading to potential overloads. Obviously, there are a lot more wires on Earth today, “so one might expect much worse problems if it occurred today.”
Solar storms continue far after what NASA describes as a ‘solar minimum’ related to cycle 23. Why? Because cycle 23 is related only to an 11 year oscillation cycle which ebbs and flows resulting in a 22 year cycle in which the Sun’s magnetic pole shifts. However, what we are experiencing today goes far beyond an 11 or 22 year rhythm. called a ‘Mega Cycle’. It simply means a cycle which supersedes a cycle, or a cycle outside of a cycle. No one is quite sure how long this one will be. There are known extended cycles measuring 200, 1,200 and even 100,000 years. The latter is related to our known history of ice ages, and warming trends.
