The headline of today’s SciTech page on Fox News warns: “Powerful Solar Storm Could Shut Down U.S. for Months.” The article said, “Damage to power grids and other communication systems could be catastrophic…with effects leading to a potential loss of governmental control of the situation.”
“The prediction is based in part on a major solar storm in 1859 that caused telegraph wires to short out in the United States and Europe, igniting widespread fires.”
The scientists warn that a severe solar flare-up could knock out power grids, melt transformers, disable satellites, and cause a cascade of failures that would sweep across the United States and around the world. Independent infrastructures would go off-line, communications would end, banks would close, emergency services would be strained, and command and control might be lost.
The next peak in solar activity is expected to come around 2012.
This article reads as though it came straight from the pages of the book of Revelation, and it might help explain some of the catastrophic events that will occur during the Tribulation. See Revelation 16:8. Couple that with calls this week in Europe for a world-government and ongoing conflict in the Middle East, and it’s starting to sound a lot like biblical prophecy.
