January 18, 2011 – What could the peak of the current Solar Cycle 24 look like as we hit the solar maximum sometime between 2012-2013? No one knows for sure but some scientists think it could be one of the worst in the last three centuries. Mayan prophecies and prophecies in the Book of Revelation both suggest the Sun will experience behavior it has never exhibited before and the Earth will be in some type of grave danger as a result of the solar convulsion. “And power was given unto (him) the Sun to scorch men with fire.” The prophecy in the Book of Revelation 16:8 about the Sun’s wrath in the last days is particularly unsettling as we are currently in Solar cycle 24 and the numbers in the biblical verse 16 + 8 also add up to the number 24. Numerical coincidences aside, we decided to look back at how the last solar cycle 23 peaked in 2001 as a forecast of what may be to come for the peak of 24 and found something startling- the sheer amount of sunspots covering the Sun in January of 2001.
