Jeremiah 10:12-13 "...he makes lightnings with rain, and brings forth the wind out of his storehouses." This solar wind also produces the aurora, or northern lights seen in the far North.
One active region of the sun is in a prime position to effect Earth in the next few days. It produced the third of a sequence of Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and Solar Radio Blackout Events early today. The overall effect of that activity is convergent CMEs expected to disturb the geomagnetic field in the early hours tomorrow morning. Strong Geomagnetic storms are likely as well as a distinct chance of moderate Solar Radiation Storm levels being exceeded.
CME events, along with solar flares, can disrupt radio transmissions, cause power outages, and cause damage to satellites and electric lines. Of course, most of the effect of these storms is of little consequence for humans, at this level. So long as our powerlines and satellites survive the oncoming events, it is just a matter of money...money.
And, that is where our world is having its major problems, economically. Famine in Africa, oil prices skyrocketing worldwide, and here in the USA we are feeling the financial crunch with the list of post office closings slated, the threat on the FAA, the closing of NASA space missions, and the layoff of the shuttle, etc.
Sitting here in the pale light coming through my open doorway this morning while the power was out, listening to the lightening crackle and boom through the glass door, I was reminded that God is in control. We have no new thing here on Earth. No march of humanity to the top of the food chain is actual. We delude ourselves with our sense of control on the Universe. We don't even control the oil we spilled into the ocean floor, or the dinner plate of the starving famine victims. No, they die and what can or have we done about it here?
God, conversely, is in charge of the ocean floor, the crackling magnetosphere, and our dinner plates. And, He's not getting paid for His oversight. Disbelieving mankind need to rethink their premises. Science is not thinking man's lease on the universe. God is believing man's lease on life.
The God who created lightening created you and I. We are clay lit up with plasma... of much the same elements, no? Proverbs 30:4 "...who has gathered the wind in his fists?" There is no question about what we are made of. The question is, was it purposeful or random creation?
