The first link below (sent by reader, Mike) has a very worthwhile analysis of how the accelerating magnetic north pole shift may be causing the superstorms that have been characterizing the world’s weather patterns lately. The article describes the superstorms that have hit the British Isles, the USA and Australia, and proposes that these superstorms are being caused by interactions between the sun and the earth’s magnetic fields. The north magnetic pole historically drifts somewhat each year, but its drift has accelerated lately to moving across Canada’s Arctic region toward Russia’s Siberia at a rate of “40 miles annually.”

The article also details findings by NASA and NOAA that indicate worse superstorms may be coming in our future. The superstorms are already having an effect on global food prices as one report I saw stated that Australia’s growing region was inundated by the two superstorms that hit that island continent nation, greatly damaging Australia’s crop production. Russia’s wheat crop was damaged recently and a Canadian reader told me that the Canadian winter wheat crop is threatened due to an inability to plant winter wheat last year in many regions due to too much moisture in the fields. He told me that some Canadian wheat farmers were so desperate they were trying to seed their crops via airplanes. Food markets are well-aware of these crop production problems as the prices of corn, wheat, soybeans, etc. has been bid up dramatically on the commodity markets.

FOX News did a story on the information in the first link below and their story presented conflicting opinions by other scientists on the issue. Personally, I find the information in the first link persuasive and it is my opinion that “establishment” scientists will present calming opinions in order to keep the masses from becoming restive about the ominous trends now apparent in the weather and food production capabilities.

As the first link notes, superstorms can lead to “famines and mass starvation,” as well as causing “tens of millions” to become homeless and needing to migrate to different regions to survive. Indeed, it warns that “superstorms can also cause certain societies, cultures or whole countries to collapse” or “go to war with each other” [for dwindling resources]. If you think the recent riots in Greece and Egypt were bad, wait until superstorm-caused famines cause the masses to riot and perhaps pillage the communities of the rich to obtain necessary food to eat.

The third link below cites the ominous warning of the President of Sri Lanka that the world faces the danger of a global food crisis by April of this year because weather disasters are causing normally food-exporting nations to barely have enough food for their own needs. I hope all readers will take time to read his warnings as they are indicative of hard times to come.

The Bible prophesied superstorms would occur in the latter days and that famines and price-based rationing of food would also happen. These prophesies could easily be fulfilled by the magnetic pole shift and the current earth changes detailed in the first link. Luke 21:25 prophesies that in the latter days, “there will be signs in the sun…and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.” This prophecy sounds a lot like it is being fulfilled in the sun and earth changes described in the first link. The sun’s solar wind affects and changes the earth’s magnetosphere and the location of the magnetic north pole. These changes then trigger superstorms in many places on the earth. The phrase “the sea and the waves roaring” well-describes such superstorms as massive hurricanes, tsunamis, and massive rainstorms coming on land masses from the earth’s seas. Jesus Christ prophesied in Luke 21:11 that famines would occur in the latter days prior to his coming and Revelation 6:5-6 prophesies that food shortages would cause food to be rationed in the latter days by price. This is already beginning to occur with the rapidly-increasing prices on the world’s food and commodity markets.

I hope that readers of this blog have read and applied the biblical advice described in my article, Should Christians Prepare for Future Hard Times?  None of us knows how much time we have to prepare for coming times of shortages in foodstuffs and other vital consumer products. If the President of Sri Lanka is right in his warning, you may have until April, 2011 to get your preparations in order. His deadline may prove to be premature, but at least he sees that the danger of food shortages is imminent. Proverbs 22:3 says that “A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.” (The Living Bible). You have been warned. Which category will you be in as these events unfold?
