Spring, finally ....

This year more than ever, everybody whom I know is waiting for spring and the warmer weather. Today, being the first full day of spring (according to the meteorologists, spring started officially on March 20, at 7:21PM EST)  The spring equinox (vernal)  is the time when both day and night are equal about 12 hours each. Here in the Southern part of Ohio, we have experienced a few warm days already and the crocus and daffodils bloom.

Seasonal changes are determined by the influence of the sunlight which is determined by how the earth orbits the sun and the tilt of its axis.

Magnetic Pole Changes
Some scientists believe that the climate changes are due to the moving of the magnetic pole. It has been recorded that the magnetic north pole has moved as much as 40 miles (64 kilometers) a year; in fact it has been confirmed that the pole is now located in Siberia. The earth's north magnetic pole is racing toward Russia. One newspaper reported that that is nothing to worry about since it has happened before.

The recent earthquake in Japan and the following tsunami brought parts of Japan closer to the U.S.

The earth’s magnetic field
Another phenomenon has happened just last week: thousands of dead fish have washed ashore in Redonda Beach, California. Some scientists believe it happened because of the reversing of the polarity of the earth’s magnetic field. Others believe that extreme occurrences like the reversing of the polarity are not going to happen until December 21, 2012.

Global Warming
There is a growing controversy going on regarding Global Warming. More scientific research shows that the whole idea of Global Warming is a political issue rather than a geological event.

The London Times recently reported: “Britain’s premier scientific institution is being forced to review its statements on climate change after a rebellion by members who question mankind’s contribution to rising temperatures.”

Newsweek magazine also reported: “Uncertain Science: Bickering and Defensive, Climate Researchers Have Lost the Public’s Trust.” Newsweek does its best to cling to its increasingly discredited doctrine, but the growing body of contrary evidence only adds to the public’s disbelief.

Other newspapers also wrote similar articles.

Here is the Cato Institute’s opinion regarding this issue.

“A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever.” ~ Eccl. 1:4

Amidst all the changes we are experiencing, let’s enjoy the beautiful season of spring with all the fresh growth and renewal. Nature has proven itself faithful every year, and brought back its radiant colors and sweet fragrances. When we think things are out of control, we have to look deeper and find the causes behind the events in our lives. For many faithful believers, these are “The Last Days.” 

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.” ~ Rev. 21:1
