Remember the 1989 science fiction novel The Dying Sun by Gary Blackwood, where people were forced to migrate from the US to Mexico because of the freezing weather triggered by cooling down of the Sun? Scientists are now afraid that such a situation can become a reality in the near future. The question that now arises is, are we at all prepared for another ice age?
A study by the University of California San Diego has claimed that by 2050, the Sun is expected to become cool. You might think “what’s the big deal,” but remember that this means the solar activities that create the heat of the Sun to sustain life on Earth may diminish. And the last time it happened was in the 17th century when the Thames River froze. Scientists call this the “Maunder Minimum”.
Physicist Dan Lubin at the university and his team studied the past event and concluded that we are in for a worse case. The Sun is expected to get much dimmer than last time and, in scientific terms, it is a “grand minimum” — a time period in the 11-year solar cycle when the solar activities are at the lowest point.

So are we going to experience a colder sun, or are things going to hot up in the near future? Notice the forth vial of the Seventh Seal.
“And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the Sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and repented not to give him glory.” Rev 16:8-9
“Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound. Isa 30:26
Yes, the sun is about to awaken with far more devastating results than man can imagine at this time. Unfortunately it is recorded as we have just read that mankind does not repent and does not give God the glory deserved.
Whether the sun get marginally colder or hotter, it will be nothing to what happens when God interferes with the affairs of men. However, it will take a lot to make mankind repent of the sin towards God, but thankfully that repentance, for most people, will come.
