In Revelations 8:7, its says:
The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
This site has argued that the above prophecy will come to pass as global average temperature spikes beyond imagination. The heat and accompanying dryness (due to evaporation) will cause one third of the world’s forest to burn. We have speculated that it will be the boreal forest that will bear the brunt of this.
The boreal forest (aka taiga) is found along the Arctic Circle, across Canada and Russia, and also parts of Northern Europe. There have been major fires in the boreal forests of Canada and Russia, and now Sweden is suffering from the same phenomena.
As the Arctic region continues to experience increases in yearly average temperatures at a significantly higher rate than the global average, it will reach a tipping point (most likely when the Arctic starts to experience ice-free summers) where catastrophic releases of methane occurs. This methane has been trapped in the permafrost found both on land and under the Arctic Sea — when this permafrost melts, it releases methane as well as other forms of carbon. This self-reinforcing cycle will only strengthen over time until the Arctic as well as the Northern Hemisphere experience catastrophic heat spikes that will eventually cause ” the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up”.
The signs of the coming prophecies of Revelation surround us.
