Space storms could knock out power supplies and satellite navigation systems, claim scientists.

Updated on April 22, 2010

Signs of the times...

Read article in Daily Telegraph

Luke 21:25-26

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

Acts 2:19-21

And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Scientists, don't you just love them.... have been busy proving how another bit of prophesy, could be fulfilled, when they provided the answer to how the Sun would turn red and we end up fighting the final battle with swords and other old technology weapons at Armageddon (Megido, Israel)

Apparently the Sun has dimmed to its lowest activity level in nearly 150 years – a phenomenon that usually precedes huge space storms.

The space storms in turn create problems for our high tech society, by affecting power supplies and satellite navigation systems.

Now most of us simply do not realise the possible ramification of this sweet little statement slipped into the UK's Daily Telegraph, but there are quite serious possibilities when this happens.

Anything that has the magnetic power to knock out power supplies and satellite navigation systems, will affect other sensitive electronic equipment, like computer chips and things... strong magnetic forces are NOT our friend when it comes to data protection and system integrity.

Hmmmm... what runs on those.... well apart from plain computers, we also rely upon them for sewerage systems, hospital emergency rooms, most modern cars, airports.... you get the picture!

The last really big solar "super flare" – in 1859 – knocked out telegrams and ship's compasses and covered two-thirds of the Earth in a blood red aurora.

So modern technology of the time was rendered useless... back two hundred years in one day!

Most modern technology functions on high tech computerisation, and even guns nowdays have chips to make them function.... we could be back weilding swords again, and that does not surprice me because scripture tells me that the final battle, Armageddon, will be fought with swords and such stuff.

Now I never understood that, coming from today's world, but equally it never bothered me, for I know that with patience we will see ALL the prophetic words spoken in scripture come to fruition.

However most folk lack patience, which is after all a gift of the Holy Spirit, so they choose to spend their time tut tutting the bible rather than waiting expectantly to see what God will do next.

I like suspense drama!

The US National Academies estimate the cost of a future severe space storm hitting the USA to be up to £1.5 trillion in the first year.

That makes the bankers early retirement scheme (funded by you) look cheap at half the price.

They believe that full recovery could then take 4-10 years.

What this would call for would be a world leader who could solve the problems.... hmmmm.... who could that be?

I like that, it sounds like it would fit a seven year period of tribulation really well, and as I do not expect to be here to experience it, I can rest assured in the fact that it confirms another couple of bits of Gods word that previously had me wondering what would happen.

I've always known that the world would be electronically neutered, when God started His end play, but the possible ways it could happen were all varied and seemed far fetched, then wham, our friendly scientists 'stumble' across this info and release it....

Maybe the concept was to prepare folk for the bible coming to fruition and line up their excuses, to persuade folk that God was not really beginning to express His wrath at their rebellion...

Who knows?....

I do know that our wannabe New World Order hosts know my bible as well as I do, they just decided to bet on their version of events rather than Gods.... fools.

So look up, your redemption draws near....or bury your head in the your judgement starts to occur, your choice, as for me and my family, we have made ours.

Atheists always seem to get ruffled when believers speak of their redemption and the atheists judgement, seems we have no right to tell them in advance what is happening, and they get affronted when we mention that Gods word is daily coming to bear on their myopia.

Well rest assured my friends, because like God I desire that none should perish, so I pray that you atheists will hear before it's too late to escape the wrath to come.

They (the atheists) are always prattling on about how blood thirsty our God is, well stay around long enough, ignore Gods rescue plan, and you will witness it for yourself.

Watch this space (and outer space)!

      A quick comment to Dave Matthews is that we're to be alert and pay attention, so Paul's words are true to us, found in 1 Thes 5:4 "But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief."

      Brother aguasilver ~ another fabulous hub!! I watched the Discovery channel recently, which addressed the probability of this very thing. Makes me wonder how the "computerized RFID chip" will respond to such an event...

      Praise God for the ability to minister via HubPages; we stay busy about the Lord's work and pray for as many as will receive Him to be ready to join the Lord when He comes.

      Your hubs are always fascinating and well worth the read. God bless you always, JD

      Hi UlrikeGrace,

      Exactly, we have no control over what will happen, but we do know who will have control over what is happening....brings to mind "those who seek to save their lives will lose them etc..."

      I have no concern for my life, kinda like it,would like to see my 8 year old girl married with grandchildren, but ready to step into eternity when God says.

      Very Interesting....and exciting as well...although the times will be hard and we just can't know what we are going to actually all experience...we do know that we, believers and followers of Jesus Christ, will be in the hand of the almighty...that does not mean we won't ever experience fear...or hardship etc., but it does mean that God has our destiny in His hand and we know where we will end up...makes the rest of life (whatever that entails)easier to take. I feel sorry for/ bad for the unbelievers...there will be no where to turn for them. It won't be "if" it will is coming...(the end times)...the question will be who are we turning to for safety and answers...only one has do we know Him?

      Great Hub

      Blessings to you

      Hi John! I love that it will fit a seven year period, except that we know that to God a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day, so that seven years better be a litteral seven years rather than prophetic.

      At anyrate, I've noticed that the Christian community just happens to be a buzz with the great tribulation, and the second coming of Jesus. Why I don't know. There's been so much about the seven seals, the end times, and all of satan's buddies that are going to end up in the lake of fire anyways. We cannot prevent or avoid any of the pre-destined events that must take place so why give so much attention to it?

      Bro Dave.

      Hi Dave,

      I did put the following in:

      I like that, it sounds like it would fit a seven year period of tribulation really well, and as I do not expect to be here to experience it, I can rest assured in the fact that it confirms another couple of bits of Gods word that previously had me wondering what would happen.

      But this hub was not about the rapture of the church, so I did not draw that conclusion.

      Hopefully this will be read by non believers, who need to get right with Christ before they need think on the Rapture.

      Besides which every believer has an opinion on the timing of the rapture, pre trib, pre wrath or post trib, I will probably address that sometime, but this was not that time!

      Stay Blessed and thanks for commenting.

      Aguasilver, John my brother, The one thing you never made any mention of is the "FACT" that before the 7 years or so of God's Great or Final Tribulation, there is something called, "The Rapture" whereby 1/3 of the total human population of earth, in an instant will miraculously vanish, be caught up by the heavens, and disappear.

      You could be walking the street with your wife and children and poof, you disappear, and they are left behind.

      I feel if God wanted man to know what his plans are, He would not just display periodic signs randomly here and there, but He'd select a prophet who would tell us all in plain simple terms. But whatever His plans, "The Rapture" will happen first, and the following day would begin the "Seven Years of Tribulation" to be followed by Christ arriving to give Satan, The False Prophet, and The Anti-Christ and followers,the boot into the dreaded "Lake of Fire" This is the sequence described by John in Revelations.

      Brother Dave.

      Hi John, I'll be through with my electronics by then. Like you I have made prior travel arrangements. I just hope I have them sealed properly.
