A severe space storm is headed towards the earth

Weather predictions for storminess have been revised by space weather forecasters after a major flare erupted on the Sun which has caused a threat of damage to communication systems and power grids while at the same time offering up the wonder of Northern Lights.

The lead forecaster at the Space Environment Center said there would be very strong geomagnetic storming and radio communications, satellites, and even power grids could face an eruption or damage. Solar flares send radiation to earth with some flares accompanied by clouds of charged particles that arrive within a day or two, and the present solar flare being watched is aimed squarely at the earth.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A severe space storm aimed squarely at earth today is a precursor to additional space storms that will indeed hit the earth in the future, that is according to Bible prophecy.

The potential for damage and at least interruption to radio communications, satellite systems, and power grids around the earth is very great according to space weather forecasters. These solar flares, predicted to be headed squarely toward the earth, even motivated the astronauts on the space station to move to protected areas within the space station itself. Now that this solar flare, or sun spot as some refer to it, has flared so significantly the forecast calls for a reasonable chance of more major flares in coming days. These severe space storms are an indication that there is a potential for the space storms predicted in the pages of Bible prophecy for the Last Days.

In the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation, the writer - John the Apostle - forecasts a number of severe storms in the future. In Revelation 6:12-13 John wrote of dramatic events related to the sun and the moon. In Revelation 8:7-11 there is a forecast of numerous items from the heavens hitting the earth. Jesus Himself wrote of heavenly disturbances at the time of His return to the earth, that's found in Matthew 24:27-29.

The warnings of severe space storms today do indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled in a near future.
