Prophecy Sign: Anomalous weather patterns
Drought in one region of the world, and torrential rains in another. Areas of the globe are burning up from heat, and others are literally burning up from forest fires. Is this business as usual, or the signs of an approaching period of unparalleled weather anomalies that has been prophesied as the roaring and tossing of the waves, (Luke 21:25)?
I also withheld rain from you when the harvest was still three months away. I sent rain on one town, but withheld it from another. One field had rain; another had none and dried up. Amos 4:7 NIV
A monster is coming! Forecasters warn El Nino is getting stronger and could cause 'mayhem'
Exceptionally warm water moving from the western
Ocean towards South America has caused El
Niño to get even stronger in recent weeks. In fact, scientists claim
conditions in the Pacific are now as intense as they were in the summer of
1997, when a massive El Niño was brewing. While this could be good news for
drought-stricken areas such as California,
researchers warn it may also lead to torrential and hazardous downpours elsewhere.
El Nino events tend to warm the Earth's atmosphere by supressing the upwelling
of cold water from the ocean that can absorb excess heat. But as well as
bringing relief, El Niño can have devastating consequences for agriculture.It can trigger heavy rains and floods in South
America and scorching weather in Asia and
as far away as east Africa.
