There was a discovery made in 1999 in Siberia where under the icy, barren land a well preserved woolly mammoth was uncovered. But what was so puzzling is that it still has food in the mouth and with undigested food in the stomach. Evidently there was no time for this huge carcass to decompose. These enormous creatures needed to consume large amount of food every day much like our modern day elephants. It is not possible that these woolly mammoths ever roamed in icy, frozen environment where no vegetation could grow. The vegetation found in the mouth can only be grown in warm regions. So what theories would best support the sudden climate change?
You must have heard recently in the news that the magnetic north is shifting in a big way (40 miles per year towards Russia). Tampa International airport just recently had to adjust the taxiway signs relative to the magnetic north. This is nothing unusual because we have seen the sun’s magnetic north and south poles flip every 11 years cycle. The only concern for us is that as the earth magnetic north continues to shift our GPS will no longer be accurate just as assuredly our basic compass needle will no longer be pointing to the true north. But according to doomsday alarmists this isn’t all that is going change. They believe that as the earth’s geomagnetic field continues to weaken, not only can it expose earth to space radiation such as solar storms, but that there might even be more frequent greater magnitude earthquakes and eventually an earth crust displacement (pole shift) could occur. The affect of a pole shift will be sudden and exceedingly violent and there is no safe place anywhere on earth. Perhaps Siberia might have been once near the equator before there was a sudden, catastrophic pole shift. To many, this theory seems to better support how the Woolly mammoths that while eating in a warm climate could suddenly be flash-frozen in their place. Are we almost due for another major earth changing event as some believe? I am not an advocate of 2012 doomsday prediction because truly, no one knows the day or the hour (Matthew 24:36). But the Bible does have some interesting prophecies pointing to a cataclysmic event that is coming and that it will be on a planetary scale never before experienced in human history.
And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings;
and there was a great earthquake,
such a mighty and great earthquake
as had not occurred since men were on the earth.
Notice that this “great earthquake” is mentioned twice which means that it will be very significant and catastrophic. This great earthquake as some believe it to be a crustal displacement will certainly devastate the entire world; it is said that the earth will be violently shaken and split open (Isaiah 24:19-20) as islands and mountains are removed or moved out of their place (Revelation 16:20). It sounds as if the earth will be going through a facelift. The seismic activity will be exceedingly great that it can potentially generate huge tidal waves never before seen as can also greatly affect the atmosphere above: thunders, lightings, great hailstones (Revelation 24:21), the appearance of stars falling as if shaken by a mighty wind and the sky roll up like a scroll (Revelation 6:13-14). And as the cities of all nations are reduced to rubbles (Revelation 16:19), every walk of life will not be able to hide from the day of God’s wrath (Revelation 6:15-17, 16:21).
So when will this take place? For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, "Peace and safety!" then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape (1 Thessalonians 5:2-3). But God has assured us that we should have nothing to fear because God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah (Psalm 46:1-2)
In those days, God will fulfill the promise of His second coming to take us with Him.
But in those days, after that tribulation,
the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light;
the stars of heaven will fall,
and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
He will send His angels, and gather together His elect
from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven.
