With tensions in the Middle East high, widespread lawlessness, a global economy that appears to be on the threshold of collapsing, Fukushima killing the oceans through radiation, swarms of earthquakes and volcanoes erupting these signs should be enough to wake anyone up to the fact that we are in the birth pangs spoken of by Jesus in the gospel of Luke.
The threat of conventional nuclear war always remains potentially on the horizon. Not since the cold war have tensions been like this when it comes to the threat of nuclear war. Besides the possibility of conventional super-powers going to war that ends up being a nuclear exchange, you have rogue nations such as North Korea and their blusterous leader rattling sabers too. In fact, in this past week, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea announced it has recently tested a new type of inter-continental ballistic rocket that can be tipped with more powerful nuclear warheads, and Leader Kim Jong-Un claims these will put the USA within striking range, and could "reduce them to ashes" according to his boasting. Coupled with the fact that back on March 9th, the government of North Korea announced that it had a "standardized" design for a miniaturized nuclear weapon, where these are designed to be carried by the ballistic missiles one wonders if they could actually deliver on some of that threat.
But more likely than the use of conventional nuclear warfare is the threat of a nuclear missile be used as an EMP bomb.
A nuclear EMP is the abrupt pulse of electromagnetic radiation resulting from a nuclear explosion. The resulting rapidly changing electric fields and magnetic fields may couple with electrical/electronic systems to produce damaging current and voltage surges.
The intense gamma radiation emitted can also ionize the surrounding air, creating a secondary EMP as the atoms of air first lose their electrons and then regain them.
NEMP weapons are designed to maximize such EMP effects as the primary damage mechanism, and some are capable of destroying susceptible electronic equipment over a wide area.
Quote: An NEMP warhead designed to be detonated far above the Earth's surface is known as a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) device. The explosion releases a blast of gamma rays into the mid-stratosphere, which ionizes and the resultant energetic free electrons interact with the Earth's magnetic field to produce a much stronger EMP than is normally produced in the denser air at lower altitudes.

What many people do not realize is that a solar flare emitted from the sun could also create an EMP effect. The worst of these possibilities would be a superflare.
Quote: Superflares are very strong explosions observed on stars with energies up to ten thousand times that of typical solar flares. The stars in this class satisfy conditions which should make them solar analogues, and would be expected to be stable over very long time scales. The original nine candidates were detected by a variety of methods. No systematic study was possible until the launch of the Kepler satellite, which monitored a very large number of solar-type stars with very high accuracy for an extended period. This showed that a small proportion of stars had violent outbursts, up to 10,000 times as powerful as the strongest flares known on the Sun. In many cases there were multiple events on the same star. Younger stars were more likely to flare than old ones, but strong events were seen on stars as old as the Sun. (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superflare)
Actually, in 1859 a powerful geomagnetic solar storm known as The Carrington Event caused widespread problems, such as the failure of telegraph systems, even giving operators electric shocks and causing telegraph pylons to throw off sparks. now that was in the 19th century when no one relayed on electricity for survival. Imagine what an event that size would do in today's world of computer chips and electrical dependence!
Well, one man believes that not only could such an event occur, but that according to his interpretation of the bible, on such event much bigger in magnitude is likely to take place in the very near future.
John Little - Ezekiel's Fire - Solar Flare- EMP-Warning
Episode 037 of A Minute To Midnite sees Tony interview John Little of www.omegashock.com. In this discussion John voices his views that we may be on the verge of both nuclear EMP strikes, and an even more deadly EMP that would be caused by a solar superflare that would knock out electrical infrastructure, causing the deaths of many millions of people. He bases his findings on both the Bible and astronomical discoveries. He lays out a case for the worst case scenario, what it would look like in it's effects, and he also gives some advice on how to prepare for this event. John believes it will tie in directly with the Gog & Magog war. He explains why he feels the Bible points to this event being very soon.
John believes that six biblical books actually prophesy of such an event. These six prophets: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Zechariah, Ezekiel, Micah and Zephaniah all spoke of an event that could fit the description of a massive solar flare. John believes that up to a billion people could die if such an event were to occur. He explains in the interview some of the reasons why this would be the case, outlining how our dependence on electricity for just about everything to survive today, would prove to be catastrophic if the grids were knocked out for an extended period of time.
Tony and John then discuss the necessities for surviving such an event. They discuss the needs for food storage and a clean supply of water, and the importance of community. The discussion turns to the role of precious metals such as Gold & Silver, why they will play an important part, and why it is important not to put off buying it now. It is highly likely that we are on the verge of economic collapse and the bargain basement prices ( particularly of silver) may very well be about to end. Many people can't afford to buy gold, but the price of silver is still within reach ( for the moment).
Also the potential role of this solar event knocking out power and the internet, and then being the catalyst to launch the Antichrist and the system of the Beast with it's Microchipping after the "lights come back on" is talked about.
