It was Jonah whom God used to bring me to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and Jonah has played a significant role in my discipleship to this day. Just a few days ago I was listening to Chuck Swindoll giving a sermon on Jonah’s mission to Nineveh. As usual, God used the prophet’s story to speak to me about my own reluctance to share what God has given me. That reluctance has been a constant theme in my walk with Christ, something I’m not proud of, but, for some reason, it’s always there. As a matter of fact, I feel so closely related to Jonah in my relationship with Christ that I wrote a book about him.
I disagree with Chuck that Jonah’s reluctance to go to Nineveh had anything to do with the message he was to bear. In fact, Jonah himself makes it clear that his reluctance stemmed from a combination of his strong dislike of the people of that city and his deep conviction that God, in his grace and mercy, intended to save them from their own impending disaster.
So it is for me today. God has given me a message of impending doom which I am reluctant to share for many reasons, not simply because I don’t like the people I’m to share it with. If I am to be honest though, I think to some degree, I have fallen before the warning Jesus gave His disciples in Matthew 24:12, that “…because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Certainly lawlessness abounds in our age, as it did in Jonah’s and I find myself at odds with the culture that surrounds us to the point that my love, at least with regard to patience and compassion, has grown cold.
I find myself anxious for God’s vengeance on “them”, though He admonishes me in Amos 5:18 not to, “…long for the day of the Lord.” He warns, “Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! For what good is the day of the Lord to you? Is not the day of the Lord darkness, and not light?
Is it not very dark, with no brightness in it?”
The fact is that many of the people who will receive this message and be effected by the events it foretells, are people whom I love very much. I am also reluctant for them, for the anxiety the message might cause them, but God has made it clear in 2 Peter 2, that “…If God did not spare the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (but turned them) to ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly lives; (but He) delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked — then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment.” Yes I urge you as believers to stand firm on the promises of God that he will rescue us from the coming destruction, as He has illustrated many times in His word.
That said, Jonah, at last obedient to God’s will, warned the people of “that great city”, that destruction was soon to come upon them. He warned that in forty days, Nineveh would be destroyed. My message is similar to Jonah’s and my hope, unlike his, is that God intends spiritual renewal, as He did with Nineveh. None the less, in Jonah’s story, Nineveh is representative of the “City of Man”. Today that construct is global in nature. The City of Man has become the lawless world and the destruction God intends will be complete, the annihilation of all civilization, “just as in the days of Noah”, but this time, by fire, as He demonstrated on Sodom and Gomorrah.
The message I bear is about timing, but not a forty day window, as Jonah preached, although anything is possible, but certain prophetic events must be fulfilled. Forty years is not out of the question, and some scientists have been very bold in predicting the coming event in precisely twenty seven years, that speculation based on rhythmic, clock-like solar cycles. Certainly the event, the mechanism of our demise, will come before one hundred years have gone.
There are hundreds of references in the Bible to the temporary nature of the earth and of our lives on it. So, what would ever make an intelligent, inquisitive mind believe that temporal Earth could go on infinitely into the future? The answer is, nothing. You would have to be completely ignorant of the Bible and of the patterns of Earth’s geological past to even toy with the idea of an infinite Earth. No, of a certainty there is a finite limit that has been well expressed in lore and faith, in science, and now, even in the halls of the political class; but only whispered there, lest they be overheard by the lesser beings they were sent to serve. That said, I am compelled to relate to you what I have seen and heard, what I believe the Lord has revealed to me, a message He demands I share with you and you can share with others.
So here’s what we know. We know that the mechanism of our destruction has been used by God at least once, it is recorded in the Bible, in Joshua 10:13b-14, “…Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel.”
Scientists today, mainly cosmologists, have theorized and mostly proven a force that dominates the dynamics of the universe and our solar system even more than gravity. It is being called the “Plasma Universe” and it is based on the power of electro-dynamics. Tesla knew of it and proved it in many experiments, but without becoming too didactic, cosmologists have learned that it is really electrical energy that drives our planet, including earthquakes, volcanoes, violent weather and even heart attacks. Where does all this energy come from? It comes from our sun.
You see, our earth is a giant magnet. So is the sun, for that matter, and most of the other planets in our solar system, not to mention the stars beyond. When the particle energy that the sun constantly produces, called the solar wind, presses against the earth’s magnetosphere, it produces electricity by a method called induction. You can’t feel this, but the earth does. Those of you who have induction stoves know that you can lay your hand on the burner and feel nothing, but when you put a steel pan, or any Ferris, (magnetic) material on the burner, it heats up very quickly. That’s how electrical induction works.
The earth has an iron core, so when particle energy from the sun passes through the core, you don’t feel it, but the earth’s core heats up, just like the pan on your stove. The more energy, the more heat, so when the sun flares a large amount of energy, the heat of the earth’s core increases along with it. This becomes important because of the earth’s mantle. The earth’s mantle lies just below the earth’s crust, the part we live on. The crust is about sixty miles thick, thin, compared to the mantle. The mantle is made up of magma, that is semi-molten rock, like the lava flows you see coming out of volcanoes. Near the earth’s crust, the magma is cooler, approaching a more solid state called “plastic”. Deeper down, the magma is hotter, more liquid, but it is all spinning together, at the same speed, about a thousand miles per hour at the surface. You can’t feel that speed, because the oceans and the atmosphere are also spinning with the earth, but you can see the sun arc across the sky everyday as a result.
So, the earth’s crust is riding on the cooler, plastic portion of the mantle and the resistance between crust and mantle maintains the rotation speed, like the clutch in a car. But what might cause the clutch to disengage so that the crust slips? It’s happened before. It happened for Joshua the day he battled the Amorites. It’s happened more recently but only in very minor amounts that caused split second losses of time. All that is required is a solar flare large enough to create enough heat in the earth’s core to cause the mantle layer to liquify, even a little bit. That heat could disengage the clutch and cause the earth’s crust to float free of the spinning engine at the core.
Larry Burkett wrote a book entitled “Solar Flare“, before he died. He didn’t speak about the possibility of a shift in earth’s crust though. His book was more about the devastating effect such an event would have on our technology. At that time, few knew about this delicate mechanism of God’s design and those who did know were not talking. One of those who knew was a cosmologist named Chan Thomas. In 1963, Mr. Thomas published a booklet entitled, “The Adam and Eve Story”. In that booklet he speculated about an event, certain to come, in which the earth would be completely destroyed and all civilization annihilated within one, twenty four hour period. Before his book could penetrate the market, however, it was seized and sequestered by the CIA and few copies ever reached the public square. Thanks to FOIA, the book is available on the CIA’s website, but that version is heavily redacted. A few complete version are available out there, but they are hard to find and poorly formatted for reading.
In short, the book paints a picture of utter catastrophe in which the earth is torn apart by first, thousand mile per hour winds as the crust rapidly stops its rotation independent of the atmosphere, then by massive, miles-high tsunami’s as the oceans wash over the lands at mach speed. Current thinking on the matter seriously mitigates this scenario and certainly this was not the Biblical case. Joshua only noticed the day was longer without suffering any ill effects. The end result is in God’s hands and either you believe that He is in control, or you don’t.
None-the-less, I am convinced, along with many scientists that these things will come and likely sooner than later. And we are not the only ones who are convinced. One may ask several questions, like, what was the CIA’s interest in this book? Why have they withheld it from the public? And, what is being done about it in the halls of government? I will not speculate as I did in an earlier piece I wrote on this subject, but here is what we know:
We know that the sun is currently at Solar Grand Minimum which is the halfway point of an eleven year cycle. We know that at any time, but especially when the sun goes to solar maximum, we could experience a major, solar flare, even one capable of liquifying the mantle by way of induction, or worse, the possibility of what’s called a micro-nova.
We know that the earth’s magnetosphere, the shield that protects us from the solar wind, cosmic radiation and the radiation of a solar flare is weakening as the earth undergoes a periodic pole shift. We know that our solar system is moving out of the protection of a charged hydrogen cloud that has protected us from cosmic radiation for the past fifty thousand years. We know that as our magnetic shield weakens, the solar wind and cosmic radiation could strip away our atmosphere as we believe happened on mars.
We know that if the earth’s poles shift as anticipated and the earth’s crust should follow, that the Antarctic continent will end up near the equator, while Brazil ends up at the North Pole. We know that this has happened before, in the past. We know that our government also knows this.
We know that our government has been carrying on a major construction project in Antarctica for some time now. They have built an underground structure so large it can be seen from space and is visible via Google Earth. The structure is approximately fourteen miles long by five miles wide, perhaps some sort of bunker. At what cost we don’t know.
We know that $21,000,000,000,000.00 dollars has gone missing from our coffers since 1998, money spent without any accounting. No-one seems to know how, or where, but Someone does. All this seems to indicate that our government, the elite among us, have been very busy implementing a plan that might have something to do with Chan Thomas’ Adam and Eve Story. At any rate, the question is, what should we do?
I recently replied to some none-believers on twitter in response to a report about a strange, newly discovered radio signal, a repeating FRB, (Fast Radio Burst), coming from a point in deep space, 1.5 billion light-years from Earth. Naturally, given the times we live in, this discovery has aroused far more attention and speculation than it’s worth. In a revival of SETI-like interest, many people are wondering if the signal has an intelligent source and what it might mean.
As a writer of fiction, I responded to the question thus, “Let’s pretend that the source is intelligent life on a planet that is being stripped of its atmosphere by a catastrophic collapse of its magnetosphere. Let’s then pretend that in just a few years we are able to decode the message we received and find out that it is a cry for help. The message would have been sent 1.5 billion years ago, from an impossible distance, but we pour billions more dollars into researching the source anyway, only to learn that the message was sent from our future selves. I like that better than it just being a distant super nova, or a pulsar, don’t you?”
Though I was only being sarcastic, one man inquired of me, “What should we do?” My answer to him was simple, “REPENT! Get yourself right with God, the end is near.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has told us, in her infinite knowledge of such things, that we have but twelve years before our lack of environmental responsibility will destroy us. She’s wrong about the cause of death, but, who knows, she may be right about the time frame.
What I do know is there’s a way to be saved. “People get ready, there’s a train a comin’ – don’t need no baggage, you just get on board.” That train will be leaving the station before all this catastrophe comes down from heaven, as it did in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. All you need do is repent, fall on your knees before a merciful and gracious God and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
Obviously the evidence indicates that a flare, or a micro-nova is a survivable event, but the resulting destruction would push mankind back into the stone age. That’s a place I, for sure, would not want to be. So, there is another option and it doesn’t involve banging on the door of a bunker in Antarctica, begging for the elitist residents to let you in.
All of this has been prophesied in the Bible, and the Bible says that before Jesus comes in His glory, with “ten thousands” of angels to destroy His enemies, He will come quietly, as a thief, to remove His children from the earth. “His children,” are those who love Him and have confessed Him Lord with their mouths. As Jonah advised the people of Nineveh, so I advise you, Repent! Put on sack cloth and ashes, confess that you have lived in sinful rebellion against God and accept His gift of salvation. Declare that Jesus Christ is Lord and make Him Lord of your life, Then get on that train before it leaves the station. “You don’t need no ticket, you just thank the Lord.”
