Before I discuss the main topic (Fire From the Sky- a CME), I wanted to share a video concerning breaking news in the Middle East. As many of you know, Israel is God's prophetic time clock; much of prophecy revolves around the tiny nation of Israel, God's covenant people forever. Russia, Turkey and Iran have joined forces, so to speak, to form what Kevin Clarkson of Prophecy in the News calls a strategic triangle. This is exactly what is prophesied in Ezekiel 38 and 39, and is a prelude to the war of Gog and Magog. Following is a very short video concerning this:
Now, speaking of fire from the sky, 4 years ago, July 23, 2012, earth had a near miss with a CME, or a coronal mass ejection from a powerful storm on the sun; the strongest in over 150 years. We all went about our business as usual, oblivious to the danger we almost encountered, as the media did not tell us about the event till much later. Here is a link to one article about its occurance.
Whereas a solar flare is mostly local events on the sun, CME's are large bubbles of magnetized gas (liquid fire....plasma like) which erupt into space. Here is more information about them. A natural EMP disaster, like a CME, would render the whole planet into a shut down scenario. Following is a video with much valuable information on all this that takes us to prophecy in the book of Revelation.
In case you did not watch the above video, I will highlight some of the information in it. In a previous post I shared Revelation 8:7-9 , which Brent Miller in the above video also talks about.
Revelation 8:7 says, "The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up." According to Brent Miller, this is describing a CME; liquid fire and hail, and mixed with blood from people on airplanes being killed and blood from any birds killed during the CME blast.
Revelation 8:8 follows: "And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; (verse 9 says:) "And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed." Miller believes this is describing a supervolcano in the ocean.
The verses above and following are describing what is known as the trumpet judgments. Revelation 8:10-11 says, (10) "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; (11) And the name of the star was Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter." This "star" is probably a meteor.
Keep in mind the above Scriptures are referring to what happens during the Tribulation period when God is using His wrath to execute vengeance and judgment on ungodly and wicked mankind. True believers will not go through the Tribulation as they would have already been raptured to heaven prior to this Tribulation.
I urge you to watch the video above as Brent Miller is quite the scholar and prophecy expert and he gives you valuable information in a clear and concise manner. In the video he discusses many other interesting facts that I did not highlight here. Keep in mind what one famous preacher has said:
"The LORD has His own sovereign modes of action: He is not tied to manner and time as we are, but doeth as He pleases among the sons of men." - Charles Spurgeon
Although believers will not experience the Tribulation, things might get worse for us before that time. As many of you are aware of, Christians right now are suffering persecutions and beheadings and other hardships. We need to remember what Joshua 1:9 says, "Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." - Hebrews 13:5 See also Deuteronomy 31:6.
There is a verse at Deuteronomy 28:34 that is speaking of another time and place, but could possibly be applicable to the Tribulation period: "So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see." - King James Version. Following is the same verse in the Contemporary English Version (CEV) : "What you see will be so horrible that you will go insane." That will be the case, maybe, of many in the Tribulation. You do not want to be on earth during that time ! I urge you to make sure you get right with the Lord before it is too late and you miss going to heaven in the soon to happen Rapture.
"All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out." - Jesus at John 6:37
