Just this week, I read articles in major media publications concerning the Yellowstone super-volcano. One headline read, “Yellowstone Super-volcano Earthquake Swarm Now One of Biggest on Record, With Over 2,300 Tremors.”
One documentary reported that when this super-volcano blows, much of the United States will be covered with ash and life in at least three states probably would not survive.
Dr. Robert B. Smith, an expert on super-volcanoes, said if Yellowstone were to blow today, “devastation would be complete and incomprehensible.”
Thick, black ash would be thrown across the United States like a devilish blanket.
Sounds a lot like Revelation 6:12 in the Apocalypse:
“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.”
If Yellowstone were to experience a super-eruption, vast stretches of Idaho, Wyoming, Montana and other states would be smothered.
The History Channel’s documentary predicted that not only would countless numbers of people die, but people’s lungs would also be ripped open by the sharp ash particles, and the gases released from the earth would combine with the atmosphere to lower temperatures, like that of a nuclear winter.
Crops would fail, technology would fail, and there would be a global economic crash on an unprecedented scale.
It sounds scary—unless you are in covenant with God. He gave us Psalm 91 and promised protection for His faith-filled people.
Could it be possible that the world is heading for the devastating events described in the apocalypse? Some commentators, both scientific and theological, on the History Channel’s Countdown to the Apocalypse, seem to think so. They say,
“Nightmarish terrors long relegated to the pages of science fiction are threatening to become a reality in the 21st Century.”
Jesus said, “When you see these things happening, know that it is near—at the doors!”
If you’re a parent, teach your children about the biblical prophecies. These prophecies are not meant to scare, but to prepare; not frighten, but enlighten. If you’re a pastor, preach prophecy. Don’t cheat your flock.
When Jesus issued the warning signs of the coming horrible judgments on Earth, he made a point to caution believers by saying, “See that you are not troubled.” (Matthew 24:6).
The one who knows Jesus Christ need not fear the worst because God has prepared for you the best. Whether it’s an EMP attack or super-volcano, God knows how to put you in the right place at the right time.
