Solar Flares — Prepare to Meet Thy God

God is in control of ….EVERYTHING.    Man is worried about global warming, global cooling, ozone holes, you name it.   He is hyper obsessed with himself but completely unconcerned about offending a Holy God who will someday send global warming on a  catastrophic scale.    I’m reminded of what God told His people Israel through the prophet Amos,

I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.  (12)  Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. (Amos 4:11-12)

Here is an article I saw in the news this morning about a solar event which may knock out radio transmissions in China.  At the very end of the article are these interestng paragraphs,

A 2009 report by a panel of scientists assembled by NASA said that a sustained and powerful solar flare outbreak could overwhelm high-voltage transformers with electrical currents and short-circuit energy grids.

The report, titledSevere Space Weather Events Understanding Societal and Economic Impacts” warned that such a catastrophic event could cost the United States alone up to two trillion dollars in repairs in the first year — and it could take up to 10 years to fully recover.

Of course God controls the sun as He does all of our weather.   It baffles me how in all the wisdom of man, which is foolishness to God, we think that we can control these things.   I have know idea when the Lord will return but I know it will be someday and the events of Revelation will be poured out upon this world.   Sometimes I wonder if God might pour out some Amos type of judgment before his return, just to remind us who God is.
