The scriptures tell us that the earth will be destroyed a total of three times. The first was by water during the days of Noah to purge unrepentant man from the earth and restore God's order. The next time the earth will be destroyed is during the Tribulation period through a series of various events; several of which are clearly described as resulting from fire in which the Lord will once again purge unrepentant man from the earth. After this second restoration (Isaiah 65: 17-25), the Lord will reign on the Earth for 1,000 years. The Book of Revelation then states that after this period, the world once again turns wicked and God executes the third destruction. In this final destruction, the Earth and heavens (the entire universe) will pass away with a fervent heat and a new heaven and a new Earth (of a different kind without day or night) will be created to last for all of eternity.
The Scriptures provide the framework by which the end-times will unfold and describes a world where there must be a convergence of religion, economics, and leadership. Right now, we clearly see these new systems and ideologies merging and most surmise that a one-world financial system will emerge as nations' economies become more unstable. The Bible also talk about the characteristics of the last generation and we are the first generation in human history to meets all of the conditions described in the Scriptures. The Bible also states that during these last days there would be unprecedented Christian and Jewish persecution of which we also see the framework being laid today for such a scenario. There is scarcely a day that passes in which we don't hear of events around the world which continue to lay the foundation for the final days as described in His Word; however, the scriptures also talk about geographic and cosmic events within the Book of Revelation that will devastate the earth and result in the death of millions or billions of people. The truth is that the foundation for these cataclysmic cosmic events are also being laid today!
In this article, we will be focusing on only one of the fire-related destructive events described within Prophecy during the Tribulation period, and new discoveries made that are foreshadowing its passing. We may not know the day nor the hour of such events, but we can clearly see the season approaching. Many are familiar with the prophetic event within Revelation that describes 1/3 of the Earth being burnt up along with 1/3 of the trees and grass (Revelation 8:7). John's wording is compact and precise and tells us exactly what he's seeing. Based on the wording of the text, many theologians and astrophysicists claim that what is being described could be the occurrence of a coronal mass ejection (CME) from the Sun hitting the Earth!
The surface of the sun consists of dense, super-heated Plasma. Think of the sun as a ball of liquid FIRE - burning at around 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and not as having a surface that is on fire - but is literally fire through and through (i.e. like a lake of fire and not a lake on
fire). CMEs are always being emitted from the sun, but should a large one on an unprecedented scale directly strike the Earth; this dense superheated plasma would push away part of the Earth's atmosphere. This would expose the stratosphere to the -150 degrees Fahrenheit temperature of space which would instantly crystalize all the moisture within the stratosphere. As the CME pressure wave continues to push through the atmosphere, it would compress the ice crystals into hail balls. This is exactly what is being described within the text of Revelation. John described that before 1/3 of the Earth was burnt up, "there came hail and fire"; seemingly contradicting states of matter. As the CME continues into the tratosphere, it would then vaporize all planes, birds and flying insects which also complies with the next description from John that the coming of hail and fire was "mixed with blood". The CME would then continue to the surface of the Earth where John clearly described that this hail, fire and blood is then, "cast upon the earth" - burning up 1/3 of the trees and grass! As you can see, John's description is specific and intended to be in chronological order; describing exactly what one would expect if an unprecedented CME did indeed strike the Earth.
Some may believe this is nothing more than theory or speculation of what events could occur within the end times, but the reality is that various governments from around the world have realized this approaching Biblical event is entirely real, and they're already preparing for it.
What Governments Don't Want You To Know
Since God commonly utilizes His own creations to carry out judgement as we see this time and time again throughout the Old Testament, then we know if this CME scenario is true, we may already be seeing the foundation of this event unfolding today. First, something has changed within the last 10 years regarding how governments are planning for continuity of operation; they're now thinking global. Recently, governments all over the world have built over 1,000 doomsday seed vaults to ensure the survival of the human race. The largest that we know of is the Norwegian vault on the island of Spitsbergen in the Arctic Circle. In addition, governments have begun building massive underground bunkers and small underground cities carved within the bedrock of mountains for their leadership.
But the most frightening signs are the ones hiding in plain sight...
First, unknowing to most, Earth's magnetic field, which normally protects us from high energy particle emissions from the sun, is collapsing! With a reduced magnetic field, solar radiation and CMEs will now have a greater impact on the Earth than ever before. In fact, the European Space Agency recently launched a satellite array that monitors solar activity and the impact it has upon the Earth. During the first 6 months of operation, it was revealed that the Earth's magnetic field was not only indeed collapsing, but that it was happening 10x faster than researchers first realized. In addition, recent discoveries by astrophysicists in Japan have revealed that our sun is in fact capable of producing what is now being called a "super flare" which is 20x - 1,000x more powerful than any flare witnessed on our modern age. They're referring to a CME that would be substantially larger than the one which occurred in the Carrington event of 1859. The "super flare" being described by researchers would be so powerful, with Earth having a weakened magnetic field, it could truly penetrate the stratosphere; causing the events described by John in revelation.
The Lord Has Already Warned Us that This Is Coming...
We are told to do look for the signs for the end of our age, and it appears that the Lord has already warned us that the event described by John is indeed coming soon. During July, 2012, a massive CME ejected from the sun and crossed Earth's orbital path; missing us by only one week! This partocular CME was unprecidented in size (X-class), anc if the flare would have erupted just one week earlier it would have hit Earth square on. This CME blast was so massive that NASA referred to it as "The Solar Superstorm of 2012" and believe it would have knocked our civilization back to the 18th century - leading to panic, war, starvation and disease. This near miss was so shocking to various unaware agencies, they kept the event SECRET from the public for one and a half years before finally revealing it to media at a recent space summit.
Following Europe's early flare detection system, NASA has also recrntly launched their own CME detection satellites,named "STEREO", which will gives the US Government a 12 to 24 hour notice in the case of an approaching catastrophic solar flare.
