As the United States volleys verbal assaults back and forth with North Korea, end-times expert John Shorey warns a nuclear bomb could trigger an electro-magnetic pulse, which would destroy life as we know it.
"The studies that the government has done, if an EMP blanketed America and took our grid down, and in fact, they even say that the rolling effect of taking part of the grid down could literally wipe out the whole grid," Shorey shares on The Jim Bakker Show.
He's not the only one sounding the alarm.
According to Business Insider:
When EMP passes through metal objects like a phone, computer, or radio, they can "catch" this incredibly powerful pulse. This can generate a rogue current of electricity that moves through a modern device's tiny circuits and can disrupt or even destroy them. Power transmission or telecommunications equipment, meanwhile, can overload from the excess current, spark, and fail for miles around.
If you've ever turned on a microwave oven and noticed your phone's Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection momentarily drop out, you've experienced disruptive electromagnetic waves—and had a very small taste of what could happen with an EMP.
The intensity of a nuclear detonation's EMP is about 30,000 to 50,000 volts per meter—thousands of times greater than the one your microwave bleeds off.
And Science Alert has a survival guide if this happens.
So what's a believer supposed to make of all this? Watch the video to see.
