It was in Shreveport, Louisiana, at the General Chemical Company. They were preparing to ship out a 2,000 lb cylinder of the chemical typically labeled CTF — Chlorine Trifluoride.
CTF is one of the most volatile and dangerous substances in the world!
Apparently, as they were working on placing the cylinder onto a dolly, a cylinder filled with about one ton of CTF, that cylinder split open, and the CTF — now listen to their words —
Since its discovery in 1930 — the article goes on to say, “everyone knew enough to be scared to death, and proceeded with a degree of caution appropriate to dental work on a king cobra. And they never had any reason to regret that caution. The stuff consistently lived up to its reputation.”
Since 1930, “everyone knew enough to be scared to death” of it. It would ignite and eat through sand, glass, asbestos, concrete, gravel, along with most anything else in its path.
In fact, “Air Products” posts this warning — “In the unlikely event of a large liquid spill [of CTF], evacuate the area and immediately contact the Air Products Emergency Response System. Do not attempt any remediation! Warning: Any attempt to neutralize a liquid spill may result in an explosion.”
It has always “lived up to its reputation.”
AND . . . . So has Satan and his host of angelic rebels lived up to their reputation!
It took the powers and presence of Michael the arch-angel of heaven before one of the angelic messengers could reach Daniel — Daniel 10:13
Jude 1:9 states — “Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”
He has always lived up to his reputation when it comes to the danger he poses to God’s people!
One thought on “Today’s Illustration: It Has Always Lived Up To Its Reputation!”
A great example of the toxic and uncontrolled destruction of sin and satan.
