Spaceweather reports "remarkable solar activity"

There is another amazing sign in the sun. The largest filament to date is snaking around the sun, and there are fears that if it launches off the sun, and if it is earth-directed, becoming a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), it could seriously damage the electrical grid on earth. From Spaceweathercom:

“REMARKABLE SOLAR ACTIVITY: There haven’t been any strong solar flares in days. Nevertheless, some impressive activity is underway on the sun. For one thing, an enormous wall of plasma is towering over the sun’s southeastern horizon. Stephen Ramsden of Atlanta, Georgia, took this picture on Nov. 11th:”

“Solar forums all over the world are buzzing with Sun-stronomers proclaiming this to be the biggest prominence that many of them had ever witnessed,” he says.” [emphasis mine]

“Remarkably, though, this is not the biggest thing–not by a long shot. A dark filament of magnetism is snaking more than halfway around the entire sun: SDO image. From end to end, it stretches more than a million km or about three times the distance between Earth and the Moon. If the filament becomes unstable, as solar filaments are prone to do, it could collapse and hit the stellar surface below, triggering a Hyder flare. No one can say if the eruption of such a sprawling structure would be Earth directed.”

“I can’t help but wonder what could possibly come next since we are still over a year away from the forecasted Solar Maximum,” adds Ramsden.”

Me too! What will come next? Well, in the Tribulation this will happen to the sun:

“There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars.” (Luke 21:25)

“The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.” (Revelation 8:12)

“And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.” (Revelation 19:17-21)

“The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light.” (Isaiah 13:10)

“When I snuff you out, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not give its light. (Ezekiel 32:7)

“All the shining lights in the heavens I will darken over you; I will bring darkness over your land, declares the Sovereign LORD.” (Ezekiel 32:8)

“Before them the earth shakes, the heavens tremble, the sun and moon are darkened, and the stars no longer shine.” (Joel 2:10)

“The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.” (Joel 2:31)

“In that day,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.” (Amos 8:9)

So as to the scientists’ interest in the upcoming  “solar maximum” activity, they ain’t seen nothing yet! And in the next blog posting, NASA puts out a story to dispel mounting fears of the monster filament…”Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.” (Luke 21:26)
