BIG SUNSPOT RELEASES INTENSE SOLAR FLARE
The surface of the sun erupted in a solar flare early Friday, unleashing a blast of super-heated plasma into space.
A huge sunspot known as AR1654 produced the M1-class flare at 4:11 a.m. EST, officials with NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory said in a description of the event. The SDO spacecraft is one of several sun-watching space telescopes keeping tabs on solar flares and other sun weather events.
According to Spaceweather.com, sunspot AR1654 is growing more active and is now “crackling with M-class solar flares” like the one that erupted today.
“AR1654 is getting bigger as it turns toward Earth,” the website reported. “Not only is the chance of flares increasing, but also the chance of an Earth-directed eruption. This could be the sunspot that breaks the recent lengthy spell of calm space weather around our planet.”

Those that flip through news sites probably would regard these things as just news, something to report about. But behind these tragedies happening throughout the world, and when compared to the Word of God, the obvious is clear, Jesus continues to be warning us that the time for his arrival is so near.
Pestilence, quakes, famines, signs in the sky were just some of the things the Lord told us to watch out for.
Luke 21: 11
There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
There is more to come, and it will get far worse. Earthquakes will multiply as well as famine, and every sign the Lord told us to look for. Some will awaken early enough to recognize this is the Messiah warning us, and most will realize it is too late.
“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
