Is Planet earth merely “lucky” or are we destined to enjoy protection based on a Divine Blueprint and timeline? We just evaded a “technical Armageddon.” TheTruthWins.com has reported that most people have absolutely no idea that the Earth barely missed being fried by a massive EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) burst or solar storm from the sun in 2012, in 2013 and as recently as February 2014.
The report states that if any of those storms (also known as coronal mass ejections) would have directly hit us, the result would have been catastrophic. Electrical transformers would have burst into flames, power grids would have gone down and much of our technology would have been fried. The last most famous incident happened in 1859, and was known as the Carrington Event, the largest solar magnetic storm ever reported on the planet.
If another “Carrington Event” happened today, it would be a complete and utter nightmare, taking a horrific $2.6 trillion chunk out of the global economy, and up to a decade to repair the damage based on estimates. A solar superstorm today would include damage to the earth’s magnetic field, electrical grids and disable satellites in space.
TheTruthWins.com further explains that unfortunately, scientists insist that it is going to happen at some point. The only question is when. In fact, there was another harrowing near miss in 2013, when the earth is said to have barely missed taking a massive solar punch in an “electromagnetic pulse” so big that it could have knocked out power, cars and iPhones throughout the United States.
In February of 2014, a huge magnetic filament shot out of the sun, sending shockwaves racing at 1.7 million miles per hour, a brief roar of static through shortwave radios across the planet and a geomagnetic storm. Fortunately, the massive blast reportedly shot off the sun and into space, away from our planet, so it didn’t have the same effect on radio signals, power grids and communication satellites that an Earth-facing eruption would have.
We could be facing a situation where our electrical grids have been fried, there is no heat for our homes, our computers don’t work, the Internet does not work, our cell phones do not work, there are no more banking records, nobody can use credit cards anymore, hospitals are unable to function, nobody can pump gas, and supermarkets cannot operate because there is no power and no refrigeration.
Basically, we would witness the complete and total collapse of the economy. According to a government commission that looked into these things, approximately two-thirds of the U.S. population would die from starvation, disease and societal chaos within one year of a massive EMP attack. It would be a disaster unlike anything we have ever seen before in U.S. history.
So are we just sitting ducks waiting to be roasted by the next well-timed solar flare? Not quite -OsnetDaily.com recently reported that: “Earth can raise shields to protect itself against solar storms. For the first time, satellites and ground-based detectors have watched as the planet sends out a tendril of plasma to fight off blasts of charged solar matter.
The discovery confirms a long-standing theory about Earth’s magnetic surroundings and offers us a way to keep track of the planet’s defenses…Earth is always surrounded by a bubble of magnetism called the magnetosphere, which protects us from the bulk of the solar wind, a stream of high-energy particles constantly flowing from the sun.
Brian Walsh at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland says “For the first time, we were able to monitor the entire cycle of this plasma stretching from the atmosphere to the boundary between Earth’s magnetic field and the sun’s. It gets to that boundary and helps protect us, keeps these solar storms from slamming into us.” However not every solar storm generates a plasma plume, which means ground-based observations will continue to be vital for understanding the phenomenon.
Meanwhile, we can trust that God who made the heavens and the earth, can and will keep us safe if we put our trust in Him.
Then Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, “O sun, stand still at Gibeon, And O moon in the valley of Aijalon.”
13. So the sun stood still and the moon stopped, until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.
14. There was no day like that before it or after it, when the LORD listened to the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel (Joshua 10:12-14).
