The Al Gore Prophecy

Sun spots are the relatively cool dark spots that appear periodically in groups on the sun’s surface. Sun spots are associated with strong magnetic fields, sometimes as much as three thousand times the sun’s average magnetic field.
Sun spots are caused by these magnetic fields, which take on a tubular shape and run perpendicular to the sun’s equator. Since the sun rotates faster at its equator than at its poles, the magnetic ‘tube’ is stretched out in an east-west direction which creates ‘kinks’ that push out through the solar surface. These kinks emerge as sunspots.
The sun goes through two 11-year periods of activity known as the solar minimum and solar maximum. Solar maximum is the period when the sun’s magnetic field lines are the most distorted due to the magnetic field on the solar equator rotating at a slightly faster pace than at the solar poles.
The sun takes about 11 years to go from one solar maximum to another and 22 years to complete a full cycle (where the magnetic charge on the poles is the same). Each of these cycles has its own minimum and maximum periods.
The current 22-year cycle began on November 1, 1990. The 11 year solar maximum peaked in 1999 and in 2001, the sun entered its eleven-year minimum cycle. The full 22-year cycle concludes in 2012.
In October 2003 , the Omega Letter reported on “Sunspot 484” a sunspot ten times larger than the Earth that caused a radio blackout on October 19th.
“Larry Combs, a forecaster with the NOAA Space Environment Center s Space Weather Operations, said that this region has developed rapidly over the last three to four days. It s somewhat unusual to have this much activity when we re approximately three-and-a-half years past solar maximum, he said. In fact, just last week, solar activity was very low with an almost spotless sun.
The November 4, 2003 issue of the Omega Letter opened with these words: “The sun erupted three more times in less than 24 hours, bringing the number of major eruptions to nine in less than two weeks. Scientists have been monitoring the solar cycles since 1755. There has never been a string of activity like this.. . .”
The September 12, 2005 Omega Letter discussed the unusual eruption of seven separate solar flares during the midpoint of the current Solar Cycle 23’s minimum cycle. We noted then that;
“By the midpoint of 2000, the number of solar events peaked about 400% above normal. . . . What is particularly fascinating is what is emerging as a pattern of unusual solar activity, dating to about 1948, as noted by the American Institute of Physics in its bulletin number 658 published in 2003 by Phillip F. Schewe, Ben Stein, and James Riordon. ”
(Let me draw your attention to three interesting ‘coincidences’ before moving on. The strange signs in the sun began around 1948. They peaked around 2000 and the current cycle concludes in 2012.)
In August, 2005, Hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans during the most active hurricane season in recorded history. What Katrina missed on the Gulf Coast, Rita and Wilma finished off.
We closed out that year discussing the Asian tsunami that claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.
The earthquake that caused it was so powerful that it moved the island of Sumatra 100 feet to the southwest of its original location. It caused the planet to vibrate like a tuning fork. It actually interfered slightly with the planet’s rotation, causing microscopic rift in time itself.
By the beginning of 2007, Al Gore had the country convinced we were headed into an ecological disaster of unparalleled proportions due to man-made global warming.
His movie, “An Inconvenient Truth” won him both an Oscar and, inexplicably, a Nobel Peace Prize.
Unfortunately for Al, that was the year Global Warming ended. Desperate to keep the the gravy train on track, Gore and his followers quickly renamed it from “global warming” to “climate change”.
Or, as it is known to the lay person, “weather”.
Solar activity dropped to zero in 2007, just about the same time that Al Gore learned just how inconvenient the truth can be. When the sun is active, the solar system (including Earth) gets warmer.
When the sun is inactive, it gets cooler.
It seems that the preponderance of evidence suggests that the sun is responsible for global warming, but that’s like saying the preponderance of evidence suggests that marriage was intended for a man and a woman.
It might be obvious, but that won’t make any difference. People will believe what they want to believe, not necessarily what is true.
In any case, according to astrophysicists, the next solar maximum is due to peak sometime around 2012. But the current period of solar inactivity has gone on well over two years, and some astrophysicists are beginning to worry.
About 100 of them from all over the world converged on Montana State University to attend an international solar conference to discuss the phenomenon. “It continues to be dead,” said Saku Tsuneta of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. “It’s a dead face.”
Canadian scientist Kenneth Tapping of the National Research Council noted the sudden collapse of solar activity, but refuses to speculate.
Oleg Sorokhtin of the Russian National Academy of Scientists is not so shy. He believes the world is about to enter another Ice Age.
Sorokhtin calls man-made climate change a drop in the bucket compared to the effect the sun has on the earth’s climate.
But this isn’t about global warming. It’s about Bible prophecy. Among the signs Jesus gave of His soon return was that of climate change. Well, not exactly. More the FEAR of climate change.
“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 . . .”
“Distress” is a synonym for “fear” and “perplexity” is a synonym for “confusion.” Attach “fear” and “confusion” to “the sea and the waves roaring” and you have Al Gore’s manmade global warming scam.
“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. . . ” (Luke 21:25-26)
Just think of it!
For two thousand years, these verses have been studied and exegeted and studied some more as scholars through the ages tried to ferret out Jesus’ intended meaning through allegory and symbolism. But like all prophecy for the last days, it was intended for the generation that would see it unfold.
Who knew Al Gore was in the Bible?
