I have been tracking this event for a while wondering what it might mean.  Apparently, somewhere between Jan. 5th and 8th, the wobble of the earth stopped.  The wobble is called the Chandler wobble, and it measures the way the poles move as the earth spins.  First discovered by Seth Carlo Chandler in 1891.

According to the measuring instruments of IERS (International Earth Rotation Service) and as defined on wikipedia.org, the earth wobbles in larger and smaller spirals between 3 and 15 meters diameter. Other sources mention that it takes 7 years for the full cycle: 3.5 years on the smaller spiral, and 3.5 years on the larger spiral.

Perhaps the most popular website on the subject of what has been called a “Wobble Anomaly” is that of Michael Mandeville Here
He has been tracking the x and y axis plots that the navy and IERS put out showing the wobble of the poles.  His site seems to go into alot of other stuff that is a little “out there”, but as far as the Wobble Anomaly, his notes seem to be accurate.

Here is the most recent x-plot:

 
You can see how the wobble paused and then seemed to start again towards the end of February, then it paused again. There has been virtually no y-axis movement and the x-axis is almost a straight line of movement toward the South.

My question is, “what does it mean?” 

This is not a common occurance atleast to the extent that the pause has taken since January so does it mean anything?  Of course my perspective is affected by that of the Bible which speaks of end time events including signs in the heavens and on the earth. Earthquakes and the like ever-increasing and intensifying like birth pains.(Matthew 24:7-8) and Isaiah 24:20 talks about the earth wobbling or reeling like a drunkard.  Essentially the sin of mankind affects all of creation, and also all of creation is longing and groaning for the end to come and the sons of God to be made known.(Romans 8:19-22)

Apparently some Russian scientists have been quite concerned because as the Earth spins at a 23.5% angle, it bulges along the equator, and wobbles.  The effect is to move the tectonic plates and release pressure.  Their concern is that without the wobble occuring, the pressure will intensify and thus more earthquakes and tectonic activity will take place. (I have only seen mention of these scientists on one site in particular and then quoted from there elsewhere, so I am not too sure about the original source or the reliability) This does however seem like a possibility. And you can track earthquakes of the last 30 days through the Seismonitor link I have added to the link section in the right column.

All that being said, it is good for man to consider his days.  Whether this actually leads to anything at all we still need to be alert and be on guard for the end is near.  What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his own soul?  The Bible tells us that Jesus came to die on a cross for the sins of all mankind, and that if we will confess our sins and believe on Jesus we will be rescued through the redeeming work that Jesus has done for us.  The message of Jesus is Love NOT condemnation, Forgiveness NOT judgment!  John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

My whole point to this entire blog is that the Word of God can be trusted, from start to finish.  In regards to the creation of the universe, and to the salvation of your soul.  God is trustworthy, He knows of that which He speaks!

One thought on “Earth’s Wobble Stopped? or is it recovering?

  1. I couldn’t understand some parts of this article s Wobble Stopped? or is it recovering?, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.
