The new numbers were painted at one end of the runway early this week as part of general maintenance, said a spokeswoman for the Port of Portland, which owns and operates the airport.
Pilots and clients of the airport were mailed notices to be on the lookout for the runway work, but the airport was never shut down, as was rumored, said spokeswoman Kama Simonds.
Runways are designated according to the points on a compass, and the changing location of true magnetic north meant the runway sometimes is renamed.
Experts say magnetic north is slipping slowly from above the Arctic Ocean in a north-northwestern direction toward Siberia, at about 34.2 miles per year. When the magnetic points were recalibrated, Hillsboro, like some other airports, had to renumber its main runway. – Oregon Love
Daniel 2:21 “He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
Matthew 24:22 “Unless those days were limited, no one would survive. But those days will be limited because of the elect.”
Dictionary: “limited >adjective 1 restricted in size, amount, or extent. 2 not great in ability. 3 (of a monarchy or government) exercised under limitations of power prescribed by a constitution. 4 (Limited) Brit. denoting a limited company.”
The AMOUNT of days are cut short.
If Yahweh did not cut the time short, NO ONE WOULD SURVIVE. Why so? Mankind is a wild card that would destroy itself with no help from anyone. Even Satan, if left alone, could not save mankind from its own self. Mankind’s disposition is destruction. Without Yahweh’s guidance, they would eventually kill themselves. But even so, only a remnant will be harvested from this crop of evil. The rest are doomed to eternal death by the hand of Yahweh.
