A Super Solar EMP

Super EMP And Global Earthquake

As fantastic as this solar event will be, we’re really concerned with what we will experience and whether we will survive it. And, there are two areas that put your survival in doubt:

Electromagnetic Pulse


When our sun increases in brightness by 600%, it will also send out a sphere of plasma in every direction, out into the Solar System. We call this plasma a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), and it will be the second biggest in written history. When that CME reaches Earth, 15-20 hours later, everything electric and electronic will cease to work. Transformers will explode. Power lines will melt. Massive lightening storms will bombard us. Cars will cease to work. Planes will fall out of the sky. Satellites will be swept away. And, every major building around the world will collapse in the second biggest earthquake in human history.

In the first editions of this book, I had not seen the inevitability of earthquakes and even tidal waves. I was so focused on the effects on our electrical infrastructure that I did not see what the Bible said would happen to buildings and cities around the world. And, it took my book, When Gog Comes, for me to see it. But, let’s talk about this pulse of electromagnetism that will come from our sun.

A Solar Electromagnetic Pulse

As I have said before, most solar flares do not cause the same level of damage that an EMP weapon would cause. Most solar flares only cause damage to radio communications, electricity generation and electricity distribution. But, Ezekiel’s Fire will be so much greater than any solar flare that we have ever seen, that we would do well to compare its effects with that of nuclear EMP weapons.

Please also remember that the description in Zechariah 12:4 is stunningly similar to the effects of something like a nuclear EMP weapon. Here is that verse again:

In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

Zechariah 12:4 (KJV)

Even if we ignore the above verse and limit our thinking to the possibility that Ezekiel’s Fire would only destroy electricity generation – that alone, would cause massive death and destruction. You cannot live without electricity. If electricity generation and distribution is destroyed across a continent – or more than one – it would be years before it came back on. And, that means no food or water – for months, or years.

Are you ready for that?

Most experts are concerned about a recurrence of a solar flare like the Carrington Event. But, Ezekiel’s Fire will be so far beyond anything like that… it would be like comparing a cannon to a pop-gun. No one and nothing would ever be the same again – at least, for those who survive.

Again, I cannot stress enough the need to understand the description found in Zechariah:

every horse with astonishmentevery horse of the people with blindness.

I will be getting into other Bible passages that verify the coming of Ezekiel’s Fire, later. But for now, just understand that Ezekiel’s Fire will act just like a really massive EMP attack, destroying electricity distribution and unshielded electronics – like those found in cars and trucks.

Video Explanation

So, let’s talk about what an electromagnetic pulse is, and what it would do to our way of life. And, a little history is a great starting point:

What is an EMP? The 60 second answer

That was short, quick and to-the-point – but, a little too short and too quick.

Here’s a discussion that goes a bit longer and talks a little bit more about EMP. It also gives an interesting demonstration of an EMP attack at work:

The demonstration of the effects of an EMP, is at the halfway point:


Notice what happens to your car when a strong ElectroMagnetic Pulse hits your car. I stops running. Notice what General Wayne Downing infers about EMP. If an electromagnetic pulse happened over the battlefield, he said:

…”we’d have to dust off our lensatic compasses and our maps. And that’s why, when we train today, you still got to train under conditions without your technology.”

That sounds an awful lot like the verse that I quoted to you:

In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

Zechariah 12:4

Now, the above video engages in some hysteria. Getting a nuclear weapon 300 miles above the earth isn’t as easy as you would think. Nukes are heavy, and they would need a big rocket to get it where they want it to go. Furthermore, power grid operators in the US and elsewhere have learned how to resist the effects of most electromagnetic assaults, such as lightening.

So, let’s look at what lightening would do to your car:

A lightening strike is a lot like an EMP. And, as you can see in the video, your car will probably survive such a catastrophic event. They even have a term for the EMP effects of a lightning strike – Lightning Electromagnetic Pulse (LEMP).

Some have used such examples of modern day lightning protections to claim that EMP isn’t much of a problem. But, LEMP isn’t quite the same as a Nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse (NEMP) or High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP). And, there’s one company that specializes in using EMP technology to disable vehicles from a distance.

That’s a marketing presentation from Teledyne e2v. And, whoever chose the background sound effects for that video needs to have their head examined. But, it does demonstrate something very important:

Your car might survive a lightning strike, but probably not an EMP.

Here’s a good discussion of EMP weapons by Simon Whistler at Today I Found Out:

Do Real EMP Weapons Actually Exist, or Are They Only a Thing in Movies?

Notice what he says in this video repeatedly:

All of the first nuclear electromagnetic pulse tests “exceeded expectations.”

In fact, this is probably the most common scientific comment that we could make in our investigations of the dangers of EMP and solar storms. Our expectations are constantly being exceeded by reality, and we can’t seem to grasp the magnitude of what is coming. Take the most recent almost-catastrophe as an example.

The Solar Storm of 2012

On July 23rd, 2012, the Sun unleashed the biggest solar flare and coronal mass ejection (CME) that we had seen in more than 150 years. It flew by Earth’s orbit just 18 hours later, and would have done fantastic damage to our civilization, if it had happened a few days earlier. And, the only reason that we know about it, was due to a satellite launched six years earlier to examine our sun – STEREO-A.

NASA called it a ‘near miss’, and some people took notice. That’s why there was a meeting of scientists, government officials and emergency planners in 2014 to talk about what might have happened if that solar flare and CME had hit us. The following video was published a couple weeks after that meeting was held in Boulder, Colorado:

The NASA write up is is here:

Near Miss: The Solar Superstorm of July 2012

The slide presentation by Daniel Baker at that 2014 meeting is unsettling. It demonstrates just how vulnerable we are to such Carrington-class solar storms. You can see the slides of his presentation, here:

A Major Solar Eruptive Event in July 2012: Defining Extreme Space Weather Scenarios

Yet, at the same time, we have persons-of-uncertain-parentage writing and recording videos that minimize the dangers of such solar flares. As Einstein has been reported as saying:

There are two things that are infinite – the Universe and human stupidity.

(and he wasn’t so sure about the Universe)

And, if you want a good introduction into how powerful the Carrington Event of 1859 was, here’s a good video to watch:

Again, we don’t know how often the sun shoots out such large solar flares. However, as we’ll see later, they hit us pretty often – about once every 100 to 150 years. The question is…

…what are we doing about all this?

Almost nothing. We have an early warning satellite that will give us a few hours notice of any solar flare headed our way. Power companies have said that they are putting in new technology that will protect us from the next solar superstorm.

But, will any of that be enough?

Of course not.

Remember what Simon Whistler said about those EMP tests run by the US and the Soviets. They all exceeded expectations. By a lot. And, scientists have repeatedly claimed that the Sun can’t emit solar flares much stronger than the Carrington event. Yet, we have proof that this is not true. But, it gets worse.
