In various places around the world are what are known as super volcanoes.
One super volcano that is attracting a lot of nervous attention at the moment is in Yellowstone National Park.
A number of changes are happening to the local terrain for example; Norris Basin nearby has been raised up 35 inches since 1923.
One end of Yellowstone Lake is now 100 feet higher than the other end, causing flooding. Trees in the park are dying as their roots cook in the heat. Scientists tell us that a Yellowstone eruption is overdue.
Yellowstone will erupt and drop a one metre thick carpet of ash across the USA. One of the main gasses given off by Yellowstone is Sulphur Dioxide. In the presence of water vapour, Sulphur Dioxide very quickly becomes Sulphur Trioxide and then Sulphuric Acid.
Clouds of Sulphuric Acid reflect light and America will be plunged into darkness. A similar effect can be seen on the planet Venus which has an atmosphere of Clouds of Sulphuric Acid. Light is reflected back from Venus making it visible to the naked eye and the planet’s surface is in almost total darkness.
Revelation Chapter 8 Verse 12 says:
The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night. (NIV)
The eruption of Yellowstone will also see massive amounts of Hydrogen Sulphide gas thrown up into the atmosphere. This gas is a key factor in Event 6 The Burning Sulphur.
