Iceland volcano could have world consequences-1783 eruption changed weather patterns,sent poisoned air to British Isles

Iceland volcano could change the climate worldwide and cause much devastation!

There has even been talk about this calamity having a "nuclear winter" effect which is a long period of darkness and extreme cold that scientists predict would follow a full-scale nuclear war. There would be a layer of dust and smoke in the atmosphere that would cover the earth and block the rays of the sun in which most living organisms would perish.

This global catastrophe would produce famine and pestilence. These are the signs that Jesus told us to look for that indicate the end of the age.

Matthew 24:3...the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And 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.
7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

The below describes what happened the last time Iceland's Katla volcano erupted. There is a very real possiblity of a similar cataclysm with the geothermal activity now occuring now in Iceland

We need to see that we are at the end of the age and that Jesus was so mericiful that He forewarned us of what to watch for so we could prepare ourselves for His coming.

It is time for any unsaved to accept the free gift of salvation bought by the blood of Jesus Christ as a pardon for all our sins.

Those that have accepted this gift of eternal life need to separate from the temporal and draw close to the Lord God Almighty. We do want to be found lukewarn when He comes as He warned us that He would vomit the lukewarm out of His mouth.

15I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

19Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.

"Like earthquakes, predicting the timing of volcanic eruptions is an imprecise science. An eruption at the Katla volcano could be disastrous, however — both for Iceland and other nations.

Iceland's Laki volcano erupted in 1783, freeing gases that turned into smog. The smog floated across the Jet Stream, changing weather patterns. Many died from gas poisoning in the British Isles. Crop production fell in western Europe. Famine spread. Some even linked the eruption, which helped fuel famine, to the French Revolution. Painters in the 18th century illustrated fiery sunsets in their works.

The winter of 1784 was also one of the longest and coldest on record in North America. New England reported a record stretch of below-zero temperatures and New Jersey reported record snow accumulation. The Mississippi River also reportedly froze in New Orleans."
