Earth’s magnetic pole is on the move, fast. And we don’t know why

    I have heard some discuss this as sign for the Second Coming of Christ.

    Mark 13:25-27 King James Version (KJV)
    25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

    26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

    27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

    For stalls to fall, and for the heavens to be shaken it is believed a major schism (of sorts) between celestial powers has to occur. If you change polarity, and gravitational forces the heavens will fall into disarray. Each object in space effects one another in a kind of stasis that would be vastly affected if anything is completely changed. Can you imagine the moon leaving its orbit as an example? I have seen it theorized that a polar shift of extreme magnitude could repulse the moon like 2 same pole magnets. Well equal and opposite.... so we would also be affected by the same amount of force. A major shift in our orbits will affect everything in the solar system and so on.

    I am not well versed or studied in this theory. Just presenting something I once read.

    Isa. 13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

    13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

    The earth's magnetic field has reversed itself several times in the past. The strength of the field has been decreasing for decades and there is speculation that we may be due for another reversal. On a geologic time scale this could take decades or centuries to complete. To be clear this does not involve the planet literally flipping over. If we actually are involved in a magnetic reversal there will be a time period perhaps centuries long where we will be exposed to much more intense cosmic radiation. This will not be the end of the world but it might just trigger an evolutionary explosion as has happened in the past. Too bad I won't be around to witness all that.

    At least the last part is correct. The magnetic forces between earth and moon are negligible in comparison to the gravitational forces. The earth's magnetic pole can wander around like a drunken sailor, and the moon will be just fine.

    The federal government was set to update the World Magnetic Model but had to delay it because of the shutdown.

    I'd be concerned about it's deterioration, as the earth's magnetic field protects us from cosmic radiation (Van Allen belt, Auroras etc.). The assumption seems to be that a flip will re-energise it, but if a flip happens and it doesn't re-energise the field, we're going to be in trouble.

    I suppose I'm a bit of a Creationist at heart, and a declining magnetic field would fit in well with the gloomy picture of the sun burning men's skin with its rays in Revelation.

    Revelation 16:7-9 (NIV)
    http://cse.ssl.berkeley.edu/SEGwaye...netism/magnetism_on_earth/guide_activity7.pdf

    Years ago my old pastor, who was not much given to eschatological speculation, commented "I think He's doing something to the sun." He died in 1992 incidentally, when discussion about climate change was not on the radar like it is today.

    In Australia we've had a string of hot years and indications seem to be that it is going to get worse.

    2018 was Australia's third-hottest year on record

    At Cost Survey/Marine Chart Division, (part of NOAA) we have been tracking the changes in magnetic north for over a century.

    Every paper/raster chart we make has a compass symbol that gives true north, magnetic north and notes the rate of change.

    http://tileservice.charts.noaa.gov/tileset.html#50000_1-locator

    You can zoom in and see how much magnetic north varies, and how much it changes.

    Yes, because the poles have flipped in the past and we're long overdue for a flip.

    Oh yes! The Earth is going to flip. For it is written.
    Isaiah 24:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
    24 Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

    2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

    3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.

    King James Version (KJV)

    There's definitely a big significant difference between the movement that was recorded from 1900-1940 and the movements observed over the past 40 years. It does make one wonder if the magnetic pole is about to flip again.
