“Electromagnetic Pulse: One Day We Will Wake Up In An America Without Electricity And Society Will Totally Break Down”

The following article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. His articles are spot on and his relentless research gives us a glimpse of what clearly may happen in the days ahead. I challenge you to read his article below carefully and then consider exactly what he is saying. Then turn to your Bible and consider how Bible Prophecy is a warning to the clear and present danger America and the rest of the world is facing right now. The days ahead will present many problems and heartaches for the people of earth; if you have not prepared in your heart, mind and soul in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then in your troubles you may not find any comfort.

What would you do if the power grid went down and never came back up?  One of these days, and it could be a lot sooner than most people think, we will all wake up in a country without electricity.  And considering how utterly dependent we have become on technology, that is a very frightening scenario to consider.  How would Americans react if nothing worked?  Just imagine a world where everything electronic is dead.  I am talking about lights, cell phones, computers, televisions, ATMs, heating and cooling systems, credit card readers, gas pumps, cash registers, refrigerators, hospital equipment etc.  When the power goes out for a few hours, that can be a major inconvenience, but what if it went out all over the nation and it didn’t come back on for months or even years?  This is one of the greatest potential threats that the United States is facing, and yet very few people are even talking about it.


An electromagnetic pulse attack could potentially send our nation back to the 1800s in a single moment, but very few of us are equipped to handle life without technology.  Tech guru John McAfee recently wrote an article in which he expressed his belief that 90 percent of the population would be dead within 2 years of such an attack

Experts agree that an all out cyber attack, beginning with an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack on our electronic infrastructure, would wipe out 90% of the human population of this country within two years of the attack. That means the death of 270 million people within 24 months after the attack.

You may think that is an unreasonably high estimate, but it turns out that it is the exact same number that the EMP Commission used in their report to Congress back in 2008

What would a successful EMP attack look like? The EMP Commission, in 2008, estimated that within 12 months of a nationwide blackout, up to 90% of the U.S. population could possibly perish from starvation, disease and societal breakdown.

In 2009 the congressional Commission on the Strategic Posture of the United States, whose co-chairmen were former Secretaries of Defense William Perry and James Schlesinger, concurred with the findings of the EMP Commission and urged immediate action to protect the electric grid. Studies by the National Academy of Sciences, the Department of Energy, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the National Intelligence Council reached similar conclusions.

So what has Barack Obama done to protect us from such an attack?

Absolutely nothing.

But there are others in the government that are very, very concerned about this threat.  For example, NORAD recently moved back into Cheyenne Mountain, and the potential for an EMP attack was given as the primary reason for the move

The Pentagon is moving the headquarters for the North American Aerospace Defense Command (Norad) back into Cheyenne Mountain near Colorado Springs, Colo., a decade after having largely vacated the site.

Why the return? Because the enormous bunker in the hollowed-out mountain, built to survive a Cold War-era nuclear conflict, can also resist an electromagnetic-pulse attack, or EMP. America’s military planners recognize the growing threat from an EMP attack by bad actors around the world, in particular North Korea and Iran.

An EMP strike, most likely from the detonation of a nuclear weapon in space, would destroy unprotected military and civilian electronics nationwide, blacking out the electric grid and other critical infrastructure for months or years. The staggering human cost of such a catastrophic attack is not difficult to imagine.

For years, most experts have assumed that an EMP attack would be conducted by exploding at least one nuclear weapon high up in our atmosphere.  And that could definitely happen someday.  But now governments all over the world are working on other ways to deliver an EMP strike, and many of them do not involve nuclear weapons at all.

The U.S. government is among those that have been doing this kind of research.  The U.S. Air Force now reportedly has the capability to conduct an EMP assault against individual buildings or power stations.  The following comes from the Daily Mail

For years, scientists have been attempting to create such a weapon as part of Champ, or the Counter-electronics High-powered microwave Advanced Missile Project.

Now, the US Air Force claims it has advanced the technology, and says it can deploy it using the stealthy Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range (JASSM).

There are fears a well targeted attack could knock out multiple power stations.

‘This technology marks a new era in modern-day warfare,’ said Keith Coleman, CHAMP program manager for Boeing Phantom Works.

And we also know that Russia, China, Iran and North Korea have also been developing EMP weapons.  This next excerpt comes from DefenseNews

The possibility of man-made EMP events has grown in tandem with the technological sophistication of America’s adversaries. It is widely known that both Russia and China already have this capability, and both countries have carried out serious work relating to the generation of EMP in recent years as part of their respective military modernization programs.

Now, rogue states Iran and North Korea may not be that far behind. Iran, for example, is known to have simulated a nuclear EMP attack several years ago using short-range missiles launched from a freighter. North Korea, meanwhile, has acquired the blueprints to build an EMP warhead, and in July of 2013, a North Korean freighter made it all the way to the Gulf of Mexico with two nuclear capable missiles in its hold.

Why are these other nations developing these technologies?

To use them against us someday of course.

Many are particularly concerned about what Iran has been doing.  In a piece for an Israeli news source, author Dr. Peter Vincent Pry explained that Iranian military documents actually discuss conducting such an attack against the United States…

Iranian military documents describe such a scenario–including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States.

Thus, Iran with a small number of nuclear missiles can by EMP attack threaten the existence of modernity and be the death knell for Western principles of international law, humanism and freedom.  For the first time in history, a failed state like Iran could destroy the most successful societies on Earth and convert an evolving benign world order into world chaos.

And it wouldn’t take much to completely disrupt electricity generation in America.  In a previous article, I discussed a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission report which made the following jaw dropping statement…

“Destroy nine interconnection substations and a transformer manufacturer and the entire United States grid would be down for at least 18 months, probably longer.”

Are you starting to get the picture?

We are far more vulnerable than most people realize.

And even if we are never attacked by an EMP weapon, scientists tell us that it is inevitable that a massive solar storm will produce a similar result someday anyway.  Back in 1859, a massive solar storm that came to be known as “the Carrington Event” fried telegraph machines all over Europe and North America.

NASA says that there is a 12 percent chance that a similar solar storm will hit us within the next ten years, and if that happens the consequences will be absolutely catastrophic…

NASA is warning that there’s a 12 percent chance an extreme solar storm will hit Earth in the next decade, sending out massive shock waves that would knock out grids across the world.

The economic impact of this doomsday scenario could exceed $2 trillion — or 20 times the cost of Hurricane Katrina, according to the National Academy of Sciences.

I don’t know why more people aren’t concerned about this.  There are things that the federal government could do to harden our electrical grid, but they aren’t doing them.

This is a foreseeable danger, but our “leaders” are not taking it seriously.

And even if nobody ever purposely attacks us, scientists insist that it is only a matter of time before the sun unleashes an electromagnetic pulse that fries our electronics.  In fact, we have had some very close calls in recent years.  The following is an excerpt from a book that I co-authored with Barbara Fix entitled “Get Prepared Now“…

Most people have absolutely no idea that the Earth barely missed being fried by a massive EMP burst from the sun in 2012 and in 2013. And earlier in 2014 there was another huge solar storm which would have caused tremendous damage if it had been directed at our planet. If any of those storms would have directly hit us, the result would have been catastrophic. Electrical transformers would have burst into flames, power grids would have gone down and much of our technology would have been fried. In essence, life as we know it would have ceased to exist – at least for a time. These kinds of solar storms have hit the Earth many times before, and experts tell us that it is inevitable that it will happen again.

It amazes me that such a small percentage of the population is taking this threat seriously.

An electromagnetic pulse could bring down our entire society in a single moment at any time, and all of the experts assure us that it will happen someday.

But our politicians are just sitting on their hands and most Americans mock the idea that we need to be concerned about this.

So what do you think?

Bible Prophecy Commentary: Syria – A Battleground of Nations

If you haven’t paid attention before, now is the time to focus on what is going on in Syria. This could potentially be a place where a major Middle East war breaks out. It could be the launching pad for the Gog/Magog war described in Eze 38/39. The players are assembling and they’re also kicking up the dust against the Syrian Rebels and some ISIS. The real question is how will the US fare in the days ahead with Russia’s military in such close proximity?

Stay tuned folks as this could escalate into something huge … for the world.


“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” -Matt 24:6-7 (KJV)

Faced With Death, Will You Still Claim Christ?

How Deep is Your Faith?

"For we walk by faith, not by sight:" -2 Cor 5:7 (KJV)

[dc]T[/dc]his past week America faced yet another horrific mass murder, this time in Oregon. Before we get started today, I would like to say that our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the victims. This was an absolutely terrible tragedy.

Each day the world looks down the barrel of a gun or faces the edge of the knife for these are in fact the last days leading up to Jesus Christ's return. This cannot be denied anymore. It also cannot be attributed to the lack of gun control as that excuse or reasoning is ludicrous! The persecution of Christians is increasing not only in the Middle East but now here in America. And this is happening way too often.

[dc]W[/dc]hen you become a Christian, when you accept Christ and claim Him as your Lord and Savior through His death and resurrection at Calvary.  You are now a new creature – 2 Cor 5:17 – and have been born again of the spirit. When you take this step, you begin a new life, a renewed, sanctified, born-again life in Christ and this life is awesome yet can be tough. As a Christian, you know that God is a God of infinite love, mercy, and grace but He is also a God of justice and also judgment. And as so many of our Christian leaders fail to preach today, we will face many perils living a Christian life, especially in the last days before Christ's return. Many will not be prepared because their 'shepherds' are not preparing them. Woe unto these shepherds!!

The Lord did not say this life would be easy. He did not promise you endless happiness, or work success, or good health or prosperity. The Christian's walk can be painful and difficult but the Lord uses this to teach us and draw us closer to Him.

"Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." -James 4:14 (KJV)

[dc]O[/dc]ur lives are frail and temporary; they are but a vapor. We live to live for Christ and that is the entire bottom line. Death is a very present reality that we all will face but who is ready? Who is prepared? Our faith is another significant hinge-pin of our lives. Without it we fail and with it we prevail! The big question for all of us is where and to what depth is our faith? Do we just dabble in the Bible and in Christ? Do we play with Christianity like it's a game of some type? Or do we take our faith in Christ as seriously as we take our lives? This past week's dreadful events that unfolded at the school in Oregon should bring the urgent reality of our Christianity home to every born-again professing Christian. Understanding some of the details of the event from witnesses, if you professed your religion as Christian you were shot dead. That should drive home the existence of persecution now prevalent in America. This event begs the question of what would we do in a similar situation. Please think seriously on this for Christ said in His word that we would be hated by the world for following Him – Matt 10:22. And that in the last days many Christians will be persecuted even to the point of death – Matt 24:9.

So where are you at today?

[dc]F[/dc]or those that are present in the Tribulation, most likely at the midpoint, according to scripture – Rev 13 – whether Christian or not you will have to make a decision when confronted with your faith. This time will usher in the Mark of the Beast. It will be a time of terrible persecution as you will be faced with the choice of taking the mark to eat, work, buy, or sell.  You may be faced with immediate death or imminent flight escaping his armies of darkness. At any rate, your faith will be challenged and your life at stake.

Do these things make you think or do you not give them another thought?

"For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed , when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels." -Luke 9:26 (KJV)

[dc]T[/dc]he reality is that the times are getting more and more difficult for professing Christians. Let's bring it a little closer to you. Today, in your relatively tranquil environments – workplace or among family, are you ashamed to proclaim that you are a Christian? Do other's know that you are a Christian? Do your actions and words indicate and witness that you are not of the world but of Christ? C'mon, be honest at least with yourself. Or do you compromise and live with one foot in the world and the other in Christianity? Friend, if so, you are lukewarm and the Lord will not accept you, in fact, He will vomit you out of His mouth -Rev 3:16.

 "I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers." -Psa 26:4 (KJV)

This past week's events as well as other persecution accounts – home and abroad – should cause you to reassess and reevaluate what exactly is the level of your faith. How deep does it go? Our world is getting darker and darker and the enemy of our souls – the Devil – wants nothing more than to destroy those that claim to be Christians. (All the more reason to take up the full armor of God and storm the gates of hell in prayer, fasting and even more prayer. Be a spiritual warrior. Pray over every place you enter – home, store, work, etc. Proclaim your faith and stand your ground!!)

[dc]T[/dc]he situation is growing in intensity and the reality of what you will do in a similar persecution scenario is really unknown but that does not exempt us from examining where we are at today in our faith.  Would we give our lives for Christ if it came to that? These are some serious and sobering no-kidding questions to consider and not to put off thinking of to some other time. The time is now! Hiding your head in the sand and pretending that this will never affect you is no answer. If you would claim Christ as your Savior, would you also die for Him, or give your life for another? Where do you stand with your Lord and Savior right now this day?


Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ – 2 Cor 1:2 (KJV)
