South Atlantic Anomaly? What is the South Atlantic Anomaly? "The Earth’s magnetic field, generated deep within the planet, is a shield against particle radiation from space. In the South Atlantic this shield is much weaker than elsewhere across the globe and radiation from space therefore penetrates deeper into the atmosphere. This region is known as the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) and the radiation in the SAA is a known hazard to satellites, spacecraft and high-altitude aircraft."
Why do we care about the SAA? "The South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) is known to be growing in extent and spreading westwards from South Africa, as the Earth’s internal magnetic field rapidly weakens in this region."
So what does that have to do with anything?
"This may be early evidence of a forthcoming reversal in the direction of the Earth’s internal magnetic field."
POLE SHIFT. British Geo Survey believes pole shift is happening NOW.
"We do not know in detail precisely what occurs during such reversals, including the changes observed in the magnetic field and the time a reversal takes to complete. However these factors are important in knowing where the radiation risk may be increased and how the atmosphere might respond. Earth’s magnetic field has had many highs, lows and reversals in its past. The last reversal was around 800,000 years ago. So the Earth is known to be able to re-generate its field and has done so during human pre-history."
I will show you one possible vivid example of what happens to the earth during a pole shift. Read Revelation 6:12-14 below. To continue:
In a post I published on January 5, I noted that the North Magnetic Pole is shifting position quite rapidly. A recent Scientific American article asked "Why is the North magnetic pole racing toward Siberia?" with the following excerpt:
"The North Magnetic Pole (NMP) drifts from year to year as geophysical processes within Earth change. For more than 150 years after Ross's measurement its movement was gradual, generally less than 15 kilometers per year. But then, in the 1990s, it picked up speed in a big way, bolting north–northwest into the Arctic Ocean at more than 55 kilometers per year. If it keeps going it could pass the geographic north pole in a decade or so and carry on toward Siberia. But why?"'
The shift is so rapid and dramatic I noted in that previous post, that the Tampa International Airport shut down its main runway so they could re-paint the degree numbers for landing airplane pilots to follow. They were off by several degrees and causing problems. Now the British Geological Survey says that the south magnetic pole is also shifting at a rapid pace. A magnetic reversal in progress? is the title of their article about it.
I also posed the question in that essay that the recent bird die-offs may have something to do with pole shift because birds use the magnetic field to orient and navigate. Links are in that article.
Today, another large and unexplained bird die-off occurred in Sonoma County, southern California--
Mystery Bird Die-Off In Sonoma County
"Days after massive bird die-offs in the south, Sonoma County officials Tuesday had a mystery of their own as more than 100 bird carcasses were discovered near Geyserville. California Highway Patrol Officer Jon Sloat said the birds were discovered on to Independence Lane at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The California Department of Fish and Game was notified and a local warden responded. He took several of the birds away to be identified and tested by a biologist, Sloat told the San Rosa Press Democrat. The birds all appeared to be the same species – small in size with brown and black feathers."
Also today, from CBS Chicago, a Major, Bizarre Fish Die-Off Along Lakefront
"A bizarre scene is evolving on the Chicago lakefront, with Canada geese and mallard ducks gulping down dead or dying gizzard shad. A major die-off of what appears to be the 2010 class is happening in Chicago harbors. Thousands, perhaps far more than that, of dead gizzard shad in the 3- to 5-inch range are frozen in the ice of Chicago harbors or floating around in open patches of water."
In Revelation, massive earth-changes occur, and quickly. "I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place." (Rev 6:12-14).
The verse in Revelation sounds like a 10-magnitude mega-quake. Although the USGS assures us that while magnitude 10 quakes can theoretically can happen, they won't. I find it amusing that on the one hand the USGS says that quakes are something that are outside of the realm of humans to stop or make happen, on the other hand they say with all confidence that a 10-quake won't occur.
The day after Christmas 2004, an earthquake and tsunami ripped through the Indonesian ocean and lands. With a magnitude of between 9.1 and 9.3, it is the third largest earthquake ever recorded on a seismograph. That earthquake caused islands to appear. "Five years ago this past December 26 one of the largest earthquakes on record ripped through the eastern Indian Ocean. The tsunami that followed caused epic devastation and human suffering, but the quake's influence on the landscape was even more profound. Islands rose from the sea after the megaquake
And Revelation promises that there will be a quake so large is affects the sky, land, seas, and mountains. Islands disappear. And the verse is within just the first set of judgments- the Seals. Trumpets and Bowls come after that. It gets WORSE. Do you really want to be here?
The birth pangs now are so frequent and intense I am shocked at just today's headlines: Today Krakatau volcano started erupting, causing tens of thousands to run for their lives, a tsunami wall of water 26' high inundated Australia's third largest city (Brisbane) and killing hundreds, a crippling snowstorm pounded the entire southern USA and is on its way up north to do the same, a bomb was discovered at a Florida Walgreens, a missile launcher was found in an Escondido (CA) dumpster... I could go on here, but the situation in the world economically, politically, naturally, and militarily is precarious. The warnings are about to come to an end. His rapture is soon to occur and then the judgment. Come with us!
Repent of your sins and ask Jesus to forgive them. Make Him your Lord and Savior. Live for HIM, and not yourself, and you will be granted entry into His eternal kingdom. It will be a time of rejoicing, love, and pure worship that is so sweet you wonder how you ever got along without Him. Refusing to do so puts you at extreme risk. And the final alternative is too awful to contemplate.
