“Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.” – John 19:11
Since the 1960s when London Luton Airport first opened, most pilots knew the one runway as 08/26, by heart.
The designated runway numbers represent the angle of the runway to magnetic north.
But in 2020 that changed. It was redesignated 07/25.
Why the change? It is due to the earth’s magnetic pole slowly shifting. In the more than 60 years of operation, there have been about 6 degrees of shift. That is enough to redesignate a runway.
The airport will have to repaint all numbers on the runways and replace all taxi signage. Additionally, the airport must notify all authorities of the changes and coordinate with the FAA to update the information on charts and equipment.
It's a process that cost more than $350,000.
Jesus Christ does not shift and He does not change. He is the Truth and He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Today in prayer, praise the Lord that He is the Truth and in Him, there is no shifting.
