Images of incredible beams of light that appear to burst into space in Sulu, Jolo, have gone viral this week.
The lights are actually a pretty common atmospheric phenomenon called light pillars.
Photos uploaded by Benjj Sulaiman and Amarkhan Jidara on Facebook show different views and angles taken by residents during the phenomenon.
It was the second time the celestial phenomenon appeared in Sulu skies this year, according to residents.
According to Live Science, although they look a lot like an aurora, they’re not related to the Northern Lights, which are caused by electrically charged particles from space exciting atoms in Earth’s upper atmosphere, causing them to release spectacular light.
Instead, light pillars occur in freezing temperatures when flat, hexagonal ice crystals form lower in the atmosphere than they usually would.
Sulu folks claim they have been seeing the lights for quite sometime already, appearing once or twice a year.
The ethereal sight is sometimes confused with something extraterrestrial.
Local Taugsugs call the lights “Lansuk-Lansuk” or candles. They believe they are bringers of bad omens.
In spite of the ACTIONS happening in the Persian Gulf, so called “intellectuals” refuse to believe war is coming with the US and Iran. I don’t know how intelligent people can’t see the forest for the trees. They are truly “wise in their own eyes” which of course is in direct confrontation with God’s wisdom. Proverbs 3:7 says it perfectly.
The Bible also describes the scoffers and mockers who refuse to believe in the signs of the times. 2 Peter 3: 3-4 is a perfect description of what is happening today. No matter how bad it gets people will still refuse to believe Jesus is coming back. No one wants to believe it will continue to get worse and they’ll continue to place their hopes in criminals who say the right things (politicians) instead of in Jesus.
The great delusion talked about in 2 Thesolonians 2:11 is here. You can see it all around us with the delusional talk about Trump (Qanon, MAGA, ETC), the refusal to believe the economy is crashing, embracing good as evil and evil as good and on it goes. Satan is doing his best to turn God’s creation on it’s head and the world just goes along with it, especially in the United States.
My advice is the same as it always has been. Stay prayed up and prepped up at all times! We don’t know the day or the hour but we were commanded to know when it was near. It’s near.
