A Solar Electromagnetic Pulse
December 11, 2014
As most of you know, I am working on Ezekiel’s Fire. It is one of the most awful writing projects that I have ever undertaken – because it leaves very, very little room for optimism. In fact, the best that any of us can hope for is a decade of hard work as we fight to survive. I wish that it was otherwise, but let me paraphrase Rudy Giuliani:
wishes are not a strategy
The Bible is true, which means that there can be no doubt that Ezekiel’s Fire is coming. I hope that you will watch the videos that I have profiled below, so that you can understand what it is that you face.
A Solar Electromagnetic Pulse
The following comes from my most recent addition to Chapter One of the Ezekiel’s Fire website. The previous additions are:
So, assuming that you have read the above and the introduction to Ezekiel’s Fire…
…it should be clear that this is not just an increase in the brightness of the Sun by seven times. Increasing the brightness of the Sun by seven times would destroy the Earth, if it lasted for more than a short period of time.
It’s hard to imagine that the Sun could abruptly brighten by seven times and then quickly stop being so bright. We’ve never in the history of the world seen this. Of course, just because we haven’t seen something… well …it doesn’t mean that it’s impossible. After all, it WILL be a miracle.
However, there IS something that we have seen before, and that is a solar flare. We normally cannot see them, unless we are looking at the Sun with special instruments. But, there was one solar flare that one man was able to see without much of anything special.
That man is Richard Carrington, and he is one of two men (both named Richard) who saw the largest solar flare in recent history. That’s why we call what followed, The Carrington Event.
We also call it the Solar Storm of 1859, and here is what Wikipedia has to say about it:
The solar storm of 1859, also known as the Carrington Event, was a powerful geomagnetic solar storm in 1859 during solar cycle 10. A solar coronal mass ejection hit Earth’s magnetosphere and induced one of the largest geomagnetic storms on record. The associated “white light flare” in the solar photosphere was observed and recorded by English astronomers Richard C. Carrington and Richard Hodgson.
Studies have shown that a solar storm of this magnitude occurring today would likely cause widespread problems for modern civilization. There is an estimated 12% chance of a similar event occurring between 2012 and 2022.
Unfortunately, I believe that the chance of this happening before 2022 is more like 100%. But, we will talk about that later.
What I’d like to talk about now, are those ‘widespread problems’ – assuming that the destruction of civilization could be classified as just a ‘widespread problem’. In fact, I will let others do the talking.
I will do that by showing you videos about an electromagnetic pulse – or EMP – generated by the explosion of a nuclear weapon above the atmosphere of the Earth. An X-class solar flare would not normally cause the same amount of destruction – although it WOULD destroy the electricity network.
Destroying the electricity production and distribution network would destroy us, but the solar flare that we are talking about is beyond X-class. Even the Carrington Event is beyond X-class, and into something that some have called Z-class.
So, even though many will say that a solar flare would not be as bad as an EMP, we cannot say this about Z-class solar flares. In fact, the description of this event in Zechariah tells us that it WILL act just like an EMP attack:
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
I will be getting into the various 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 big EMP attack.
Here’s a one minute overview of what an Electromagnetic Pulse is:

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:
