Most people today would probably miss their iPhones more than their car, or the hospital, or the grocery store, or electricity in general.
I grew up during the end of the Cold War and my mom’s generation regularly practiced getting into fallout shelters. The threat of annihilation from Soviet nukes was something that was always in the back of one’s mind – but not so far back during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I’d gladly go back to the Cold War if we could put that Muslim genie back in the bottle, but that’s unlikely. At least “mutually-assured destruction” meant something to the Russians. The radical Muslims just don’t care. Satan loves suicide and he owns Islam.
All of this EMP stuff, including our near-miss, proves once again the following verse – and those who have genuine faith in Christ need not be fearful of it. Those without saving faith risk some eternal Sonburn, but a shelter, an ark, was established some 2,000 years ago. The door is still open – wide open – with a big ol’ WELCOME sign on it:
36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven,
nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. Matthew 24:36
The flood is threat’ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I’m gonna fade away The Rolling Stones, Gimme Shelter
Massive solar flare narrowly misses Earth, EMP disaster barely avoided
The earth barely missed taking a massive solar punch in the teeth two weeks ago, an “electromagnetic pulse” so big that it could have knocked out power, cars and iPhones throughout the United States.
Two EMP experts told Secrets that the EMP flashed through earth’s typical orbit around the sun about two weeks before the planet got there.
“The world escaped an EMP catastrophe,” said Henry Cooper, who led strategic arms negotiations with the Soviet Union under President Reagan, and who now heads High Frontier, a group pushing for missile defense.
“There had been a near miss about two weeks ago, a Carrington-class coronal mass ejection crossed the orbit of the Earth and basically just missed us,” said Peter Vincent Pry, who served on the Congressional EMP Threat Commission from 2001-2008. He was referring to the 1859 EMP named after astronomer Richard Carrington that melted telegraph lines in Europe and North America.
“Basically this is a Russian roulette thing,” added Pry. “We narrowly escape from a Carrington-class disaster.”
Pry, Cooper, and former CIA Director James Woolsey have been recently demanding that Washington prepare the nation’s electric grid for an EMP, either from the sun or an enemy’s nuclear bomb. They want the 2,000-3,000 transformers in the grid protected with a high-tech metal box and spares ready to rebuild the system. Woolsey said knocking out just 20 would shut down electricity to parts of the nation “for a long time.”
