A Christmas card come to life: Jerusalem hit by worst snowstorm for TWENTY YEARS as eight inches fall across Holy City

The Holy City of Jerusalem has been covered in a brilliant white blanket after the worst snowstorm in 20 years.

Schools and highways have been closed as up to eight inches of snow piled up in the city centre by this afternoon.

Israel and much of the surrounding region has been hit by five days of rain, wind and snow as temperatures have dipped below freezing.

Although average winter temperatures can be chilly, it is unusual for the city to see such heavy snow in the winter.

The Jeruslaem to Tel Aviv highway was closed this afternoon due to the cold and icy conditions.

Many Palestinians in the hilly occupied West Bank were also snowed in and dozens were forced to flee flooded homes.

RARE COLD SNAP FOR THE CITY THAT BATHES IN 3,400 HOURS OF SUNSHINE A YEAR

Snow is not uncommon in Israel, and the country even boasts a ski resort in Mount Heron.

But heavy snowfall in Jerusalem is rare, with average temperatures staying at a mild 9 degrees, even in the coldest months of January and February.

A flurry of white flakes may descend every three or four years during cold winters but the city hasn’t seen such deep snow since 1992.

Back then, as much as 12 inches fell and police had to go on national TV to give drivers advice on how to drive in the snow.

The rest of the year Jerusalem enjoys average temperatures of 18 degrees and 3,400 hours of sunshine.

Elisha Peleg, an official in charge of emergencies with the Jerusalem Municipality, urged the city’s residents to remain at home and stay off the streets, telling Army Radio the area had overnight seen its greatest snowfall since 1992.

He said 10 to 15 cm of snow had piled up in the city centre and more than that in outlying areas.

‘The downtown area is bathed in white,’ Peleg said.

‘The elders of Jerusalem don’t remember such a snowstorm in years.’

Public transport has ground to a halt, and many vehicles that ventured onto roads were stuck, he added, urging citizens to remain at home.

The Jerusalem light rail resumed service today just before noon, but 69 bus lines remained out of service, with icy roads making travel tenuous.

Jerusalem’s outlying neighborhoods were the first to celebrate the arrival of snow in the capital on Wednesday.

The higher neighborhoods, including Gilo, Ramot and parts of Pisgat Ze’ev and Armon Hanatziv had 2 centimeters of snow on Wednesday afternoon.

Snow blanketed the rest of the city at 9 pm and fell for about half an hour.

Some traffic arteries opened later in the afternoon as temperatures rose and some snow melted. Public bus services partially resumed and were free of charge in Jerusalem, as an incentive to keep private vehicles off the slushy roads.

In the occupied West Bank, city streets were largely abandoned, with few residents chancing the hilly and widely rutted roads and schools kept shut because of the weather.

A general strike by government employees also kept Palestinians in their homes, as the Palestinian Authority has been unable to fully pay salaries following Israeli economic sanctions announced last month in anger at a campaign that won de facto United Nations recognition of Palestinian statehood.

The Palestinian meteorological institute said that snow levels in the Ramallah, East Jerusalem and Bethlehem areas had reached 10-20cm and as much as 30cm in Hebron.

Flooding was reported in the northern West Bank, where water ‘inundated dozens of houses and widely damaged agricultural areas local farmers depend on for their livelihoods,’ Jenin governor Talal Dweikat told Palestinian Radio.

‘Dozens of families have been forced to flee their homes, but thank God there have been no deaths, and the Authority is dealing with the problem aggressively despite its financial problems,’ Dweikat said.

Jerusalem’s Fire and Rescue Services responded to more than 500 calls for assistance on Wednesday, after dozens of antennas and trees, and even a balcony, collapsed due to strong winds.

Emergency services rescued two adults and three children from a jeep using ladders, after the driver tried to fjord a river near Ein Kerem.

Firefighters have rescued around 20 vehicles from large puddles and flooded roadways, including a minibus with seven children early Wednesday morning.

Ezekiel 28:25-29:21
Romans 9:14-17
2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1tissot_the_rod_of_aaron_devours_the_other_rodsShadows of Yesterday, Substance of Today

Egypt was the greatest and most awesome nation that had ever existed. They had wealth, power, and military stature. No country would have dared to come against the might of Egypt in the days of their glory. But all this would change the day that God opened his appointment book and proclaimed that a new day for His people was about to begin.

What Pharaoh and the people of Egypt never understood was the reason they had been blessed and where those blessings had come from. They had attributed their greatness to the blessings of the god of the Nile River, the god of frogs, the god of this or that object or creature. They failed to see that the blessings they had enjoyed had come from the God of the Hebrews. Egypt had merely been the place He had chosen for His purposes.

The day came when the true God, the God of Israel, chose to reveal Himself to the Pharaoh and to all of Egypt. Each time one of their sacred gods fell, they were given a choice. They could choose to continue worshipping the false gods of their making or turn to the one true God. With each plague the choice was given, and with each plague the choice was made. In the end, Egypt would be but a memory, a memory of another culture who did not understand that their purpose was never about them, but it was all about Him and His people.

As I read through the plagues which came upon Egypt, I do so with mixed emotions. There is a sense of excitement, knowing that just as surely as HaShem brought his people out of a pagan land, a pagan system, and back to Himself, He can and indeed is doing so again in our day. To read about the first exodus in light of the fact that we are seeing the birth pangs of the second and greater exodus sends chills up my spine. However, I also feel a sense of sorrow. It is a sorrow which Moses also possibly felt. Moses was not only a major part of freeing his family from slavery. He also witnessed the destruction of a land he had called home for the first forty years of his life, the country where he grew up. Moses had helped to build the society and culture he was now seeing destroyed before his eyes. In this, I am sure he felt great sorrow.

For over two hundred years America has been a great country. I guess some could say it has been the greatest country that has ever existed in six thousand years of history. It is a nation once based upon scripture and the knowledge of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It has been a homeland for both physical and spiritual descendants of the patriarchs. America was once known for her moral convictions, which were based on the Ten Commandments. America was known for her efforts to preach the gospel to the four corners of the earth.

Yes, America has been a great country, but somewhere in the journey, America, just as did Egypt, has forgotten her purpose and forgotten her God. Because of this fact, the excitement of the days we live in are tempered with the sorrow of watching a land and country that many of us have called home fall to the same destiny as Egypt of old.

The sorrow of the death of the past must however give way to the excitement and thrill of the inheritance which has been promised. For the Hebrews in Egypt, most never grasped the fact that the events they were seeing before their eyes were events destined to take them home. In fact, they had forgotten that Egypt was not home; it was not their inheritance. Egypt was only a place for them to multiply and grow stronger. Israel was home! Israel was their inheritance!

Today, the system of Egypt is not limited to a country, but rather has spread to the complete world which is falling apart before our eyes. It is not the gods of frogs and rivers, but rather the gods of pagan worship, materialism, power, or worship of the creation and not the Creator, which are being destroyed one by one. For those who have eyes to see, we understand that it is God who is arising. It is He who is destroying the false gods of the world. It is He who is preparing to take His people from the four corners of the earth where He has driven them and return them to their home, their inheritance.

The words of Exodus 6:8 were spoken to the Hebrews of Moses’ day. And they are being spoken to the people of Israel today. They are words calling His people home, calling us to our inheritance. Let us not make the mistakes of the Hebrews then and not realize what God is doing. Let us not be so firmly tied to our own Egypt’s that we fail to see and hear His plans being proclaimed in our midst. Instead, let us embrace with great excitement the walk of exodus being revealed to us. Let us listen to the call. Let us realize we’re also headed home. But let us never take joy in the plagues of judgment which are upon a world which has refused to turn from their gods and to the True God.

THE BOOK OF LIFE

THE BOOK OF LIFE
by David Wilkerson
[May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]

jesus.jpg1

God has recorded every passion and motive of every person—every single
thought, word and deed. The motives of the Christian are entered in a “book of
remembrance,” which is the Book of Life, and on the day of judgment, Christ is
going to remember all who are in this book.

“Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord . . .
heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared
the Lord. . . . And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day
when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son
that serveth him” (Malachi 3:16-17).

If you love Jesus with all your heart and are cleansed by His blood, then your
name is written in His book of remembrance. This message should not produce
fear; in fact, it should bring great rejoicing to your heart as you see all
that God has planned for those who love Him!

There are books but then there is “The Book.” The Bible says each life has
its own book, a record of an entire lifetime on earth:

“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the
earth and the heaven fled away. . . . And I saw the dead, small and great,
stand before God; and the books were opened . . . and the dead were judged out
of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And
the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the
dead which were in them: and they were judged according to their works”
(Revelation 20:11-13).

The wicked and ungodly will be judged by everything written in those
books—one by one—before the Judge of all!

Scripture says every person will have a resurrection body at that time. The
sinner will have a body “fitted to destruction” (Romans 9:22). But the godly
will be given a new body, likened unto the Lord’s! And when the judgment is
over, the Lamb will rise up from His throne and lead His flock into eternal
paradise.

‘Zombie’ planet Fomalhaut b shocks scientists

rogue-planetary-orbit-fomalhaut-b

The unbalanced orbit of a so-called “zombie planet” in a dusty star system has astronomers struggling to explain the exoplanet’s behavior.

New observations of the planet Fomalhaut b by the Hubble Space Telescope revealed the oddball orbit, which has wild extremes between its closest and farthest points from the parent star and appears to cross through a vast minefield of dusty debris.

“We are shocked. This is not what we expected,” said study leader Paul Kalas, an astronomer with the University of California at Berkeley and the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif., in a statement Tuesday, Jan. 8.

‘Zombie planet’ gets weirder

Fomalhaut b is a giant alien planet that is nearly three times the mass of Jupiter. It was the first alien planet ever directly imaged in visible light. The planet orbits the dust-shrouded star Fomalhaut and is located about 25 light-years away in the constellation Piscis Austrinus.

‘We are shocked. This is not what we expected.’

– University of California at Berkeley astronomer Paul Kalas

In October, scientists dubbed the world a “zombie planet” because it appeared to rise from the academic grave. After first being discovered in 2008, subsequent studies suggested the planet was nothing more than a huge dust cloud. In 2012, astronomers resurrected Fomalhaut b’s planet status when new observations proved there was a planetary object embedded in a free-floating dust cloud. [Gallery: The Strangest Alien Planets]

The latest observations of the odd planetary system revealed that the dusty debris disk surrounding the star Fomalhaut is much wider than previously thought. The debris belt spans a vast region of space between 14 billion and 20 billion miles around the star.

Stranger still: The planet Fomalhaut b appears to approach with 4.6 billion miles of its star at the closest point in its orbit, then swing way out to a point about 27 billion miles away at the farthest point. Scientists call the extremes of such a planet’s path a highly eccentric orbit.

Fomalhaut b’s path, scientists say, sends the planet crashing through the surrounding debris disk during its 2,000-year orbit around its parent star. The research was unveiled Tuesday at the 221st meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Long Beach, Calif.

A hidden planet around Fomalhaut?

Among the several theories to explain Fomalhaut b’s extreme orbit is the possibility that the exoplanet had an encounter with another planet, a yet-to-be discovered neighbor. The cosmic close encounter could have gravitationally ejected Fomalhaut b into its current orbit, scientists said.

“Hot Jupiters get tossed through scattering events, where one planet goes in and one gets thrown out,” study co-investigator Mark Clampin, of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., said in a statement. “This could be the planet that gets thrown out.”

Hubble telescope images revealed an apparent gap in the dust and ice debris around Fomalhaut, a region that could have been swept clean by the presence of the undetected planet, researchers said.

Another theory suggests that Fomalhaut b could have once had a small dwarf planet as a neighbor, but that the giant planet obliterated the smaller world in a catastrophic collision. Such a crash could explain why the star Fomalhaut has a narrow outer debris disk that is less than 10,000 years old, scientists said.

Does Fomalhaut b have rings?

Another tantalizing theory suggests Fomalhaut b may have Saturn-like rings and be destined for a spectacular crash through the debris disk around the star Fomalhaut in the year 2032. [Photos of Saturn’s Glorious Rings]

A set of rings or a nearby shroud of dust and ice could explain why Fomalhaut b appears so bright in visible light images, but is relatively dim in infrared light, according to Kalas. The rings or dust around the planet would reflect starlight, making the planet bright. A dust cloud could be created impacts on moons around Fomalhaut b, if they exist, researchers said.

In 2032, astronomers expect to solve one riddle that has perplexed scientists since Fomalhaut b’s discovery: Is the exoplanet in the plane of the debris disk around its star, or not?

If the planet is on the same plane as the debris disk, than it will be bombarded by dust and ice in 2032 when it crosses through the disk during the outbound leg of its orbit, researchers said. That would make the planet increase its brightness in infrared light, they added. Impacts from the debris could create a celestial light show on the planet similar to that seen on Jupiter when the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 battered the gas giant in 1994.

If Fomalhaut b is not in the same plane as the debris disk, then it should gradually get dimmer as it gets farther and farther from its parent star, researchers said. One way or another, the clues should come out starting in 2032, scientists said.

Hubble telescope officials said astronomers plan to continue to monitor the Fomalhaut star system over the next few years and decades to see how the star system changes over time.

THE NEW AMERICAN GOLDEN AGE, ECONOMIC BOOM AND BABYLON

AMERICA-DEMISE10062010

At the present moment all respected economic indicators project that America will soon experience economic chaos or collapse, food shortages, riots and social anarchy as the system collapses. This analysis is based on all existing economic indicators. However, what if some new technologies were to appear? What if seemingly out of nowhere organizational systems, technologies and new platforms for business arose and America began to experience an economic boom and a new Golden Age?

For many the mere reading of these words arouses a kind of slamming of the door in our human consciousness because of an inner belief system based on current evidence which strongly suggests the opposite is true. But this is precisely what I want to address. At the present moment America and much of the world is locked in a vortex of economic destruction that is partially engineered by an invisible and occult-based elite that have plans for a one world government, one world economic system and one world religion. Like economics or physics, all spiritual systems in the universe operate on laws.

A number of things have happened to produce the global economic crisis and the drive to a One World Socialist State. At present the control of these systems are in the hands of powerful and secret occult-based elite. These Satanic elites are accessing and utilizing powerful forces of spiritual darkness in order to increase the power of the occult pyramidal organizational and control grid. On the back of the U.S. dollar bill is an occult pyramid symbolizing the secret elite ruling at the very top of the pyramid just below the all-seeing eye of Lucifer, and below the rulers is the larger base of the pyramid which represents the masses, slaves or useless eaters who are under the rule of the secretive elite. It is an Egyptian / Pharaoh-based economic and political system where the Pharaoh, a superhuman ruler infused with occult powers, rules a system of spirituality, economics and culture. This occult system is also inspired by ancient Babylon and the Tower of Babel where the first one world government, one world economic system, and one world religion were formed under a god-man or superhuman ruler, born of Nephilim DNA, which was the product of interspecies breeding between fallen angels or the B’nai Elohim and human women, which produced the Nephilim. This was the superhuman race that developed highly advanced technology and built the massive antediluvian megalithic structures such as the Stonehenge, the Egyptian pyramids, and Incan and Mayan temples, all of which incorporated human sacrifice in ancient occult religions. These civilizations and ancient peoples like the Canaanites worshipped gods like Molech under many different names and sacrificed their children alive by placing their bodies on the glowing red hot metallic hands of Molech. These occult worship ceremonies were accompanied by the use of powerful psychedelic drugs, chanting and sexual orgies. This fulfilled spiritual law and opened portals in another dimension for forces and entities to come into the earth.

This occult worship allowed supernatural power from another dimension to enter the physical world and control the weather, crops, food supplies, economic prosperity, and technology and give these cultures power over their enemies. These occult-based systems which started at Babylon continued on through Atlantis, Sumerians, Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Incans, the Mayans, and Tibet and then continued on through Europe with the Black Nobility, Rosicrucian’s, Knights Templar, Illuminati, numerous secret occult societies like the Nazi Vril and Thule Societies, and the Great Satanist Aleister Crowley. It should be noted that these secret societies took control over the global economic system through the Rothschild family, along with science and culture. After World War II, during Operation Paperclip, over 4,000 Nazi rocket and mind control scientists took control over laboratories, think tanks and secret military projects in the United States. These Nazi scientists were members of secret societies and practicing Satanists.

It should be noted that the Nazi scientists under occult leader Adolph Hitler built a booming economy and invented the most advanced military technology the world had ever seen, including flying saucer technologies whose design was channeled to them through the occult society “Vril maidens,” who were clairvoyants and received detailed blueprints, formulas and diagrams for the construction of these flying saucer-like machines. The point is that not only was Adolph Hitler financed by international bankers, who were part of the Illuminati, but the Nazi party was first and foremost an occult party and they received their economic, military and scientific plans from another dimension through their secret Satanic ceremonies. The current new world order that was predicted by the Biblical prophets is receiving its plans from a supernatural dimension. Sir Francis Bacon, a Rosicrucian, helped set the stage for America to be the “New Atlantis,” before America was founded and for it to become the head of a new world order. The words Novus Ordo Seclorum, or new world order written on the bottom of the occult pyramid on the back of the U.S. dollar reveal the secret destiny of the United States. The new world order is a counterfeit of the Kingdom of Heaven.

At the same time the Illuminati were attempting to shape the destiny of the United States, deeply intelligent and spiritual Christians were attempting to steer our nation along the plans of God. These men, like Jonathan Edwards, the father of the First Great Awakening, unleashed an indescribable wave of supernatural power that ignited the thirteen original colonies and helped form the Constitution and Bill of Rights with a distinctly Christian input that is still protecting our liberties today. Year later, a former member of the Illuminati, Charles Finney rejected the teachings of the Illuminati for the teachings of Jesus Christ and accessed what he called, “power from on high,” which released a mighty Second Great Awakening. Finney discovered that this “supernatural power from on high” could be systematically released on individuals, communities and the nation. In Finney’s writings he taught how an individual could actually carry the supernatural charge of this power and the energy released was so powerful that when Finney traveled to a town or a large factory people would begin to tremble from its force before Finney even arrived. Without Finney saying a word, people would weep and cry out for salvation. In addition, Finney observed that once that spiritual atmosphere came over a town or nation that economic and social prosperity could be generated. This was not an economic prosperity built on self-indulgence or the conspicuous consumption of material prosperity but an economic prosperity that would benefit the common good. For the most part the modern church has lost this truly Biblical definition of economic prosperity, either perverting it into a “health and wealth” gospel or distorting it into a socialist gospel.

Ancient Babylon was economically prosperous and before the Flood of Noah a secret hybrid race of fallen angels breeding with human women was designed by Satan to circumvent God’s plans and create a race of Satanic supermen who would rule the world. The breeding of this race of god-men or supermen was an essential theme of all occult-based religions throughout history. In modern times, it was revived by the Rockefeller Foundation in the 1920’s with their Science of Eugenics. Adolph Hitler hoped to use this Science of Eugenics to scientifically breed a new master race of supermen or god-men. In our time the genetic breeding of Nephilim with animal and human DNA in laboratories is an attempt to create a new race of god-men or supermen. This science is called Transhumanism and it is an attempt to scientifically evolve the human race into gods, and many fear what is called the “Singularity,” the time when these Transhumanist gods, robots and Androids begin to rule us.

However, despite the optimism of the elite who hope to purchase new bodies and immortality through Transhumanism, the vast majority of Americans are facing the reality of a dark economic future. But, the reality of a dark economic future is not a fixed reality! It is one possible economic scenario among many, because the future is not fixed. There is great debate among theological circles as to precisely what is going to happen in the future. The study of Bible prophecy is called Eschatology. In addition to writing 22 books on the subject of prophecy, I have the privilege of being a Professor of Eschatology at a major university. Many times people E Mail me, assuming that I am not familiar with the wide spectrum of beliefs within Eschatology. Let me assure the reader, not only am I familiar with this spectrum of beliefs, but I have taught on them extensively and I am well aware of how these beliefs impact our world, our foreign policy, and the future.

But I want to begin at ground zero for understanding prophecy and how it affects the possibility of a new American Golden Age and an economic boom. Many people do not believe that is possible based on their understanding of prosperity. They assume that we must face a global economic collapse and massive social upheaval in the near future. In addition, many of these arguments revolve around hopes for a rapture and the timing of the rapture along with the Great Tribulation Period.

Although all of these issues are important and I teach on them, I personally do not like arguing about them. I have many well-known friends who have completely different views on this time table and I do not break friendships over these issues. The important question is what do we do now before the return of the Lord, whenever that is? The answer is given to us by Jesus Christ Himself, when He said, “Occupy until I come.” The Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus Christ devote an enormous amount of time to economics. The primary principle is found in Deuteronomy 8:18.18

“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He. “And you shall remember that the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”

The key principle that America must re-learn is that it is God alone who gives the power to get wealth! Poverty, economic crisis, illegal immigration, food shortages, weather problem and every other adverse situation that negatively impacts the economy is at its root a spiritual curse. When you read Deuteronomy Chapter 28, God outlines the blessings and the curses on a very specific economic level. In order to access the very tangible economic blessing on America, the following law must be obeyed.

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God…”

America has never obeyed this law perfectly; no nation has. But, there was a time, not long ago when America made an attempt, however superficial to obey this commandment. The Personal Living God of the Universe honored this and this is the reason that economic prosperity, freedom, and peace made America unique in human history. America was the only nation in history where a prosperous middle class arose, consisting of millions of people. The category of the middle class had been basically unheard of in human history. America’s technological innovations, Constitutional freedoms, and material and economic blessings flow from the principle above. America was not prosperous because of its geographic position on planet Earth or its natural resources. Plenty of nations enjoy the same natural resources and geographic positioning. Collectively, on whatever level a significant number of Americans managed to adhere to the principle that God gives the power to get wealth.

Although, the seeds of America’s destruction were planted by the Illuminati in 1776 and then incrementally in 1913 and the following years with the League of Nations and the Illuminati’s Federal Reserve, it has been in the last sixty years that the collective consciousness of America has turned against the Personal Living God of the Universe. Starting at that exact time period we have enacted numerous laws that have thrown God and His laws out of our nation; we have mocked God and have become immoral; and fundamentally we have rejected the truth that it is God who is our Source! From that time period until now we have seen America devolve into chaos and moral anarchy and we are now approaching economic collapse. The only reason the Illuminati and other forces have been allowed to gain entrance into our nation and move their Satanic agenda forward through “Order out of Chaos” is that we, through our rejection of the fundamental economic operating principle of the universe, have collectively opened portals in the invisible realm for hordes of demonic forces to invade.

There is only one solution and one way out! We must undo what we have done. This was demonstrated by the father of the First Great Awakening Jonathan Edwards and the father of the Second Great Awakening Charles Finney. By turning to God as their Source and operating from the truth that “It is God who gives the power to get wealth,” they opened very real portals in the invisible realm for the supernatural power of God to set our nation on fire. The powers of darkness were driven back and there was an explosion of economic prosperity.

Between now and the return of Jesus Christ, there is nothing in the Bible that suggests that we cannot experience the New American Golden Age, even it is temporal. Author Dave Hunt, who was a guest on my national radio show, first planted the seed of this idea in my mind. Dave Hunt made reference to that fact that the Bible says:

“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” -Matthew 24:37-39

The above passage suggests that this will be a time of economic prosperity. Although I don’t know if Hunt would take this as far as expecting an economic boom for America, as I am suggesting, but the verse certainly points to prosperity. I am not guaranteeing that America will absolutely experience a New Golden Age and economic boom. But I am suggesting that it is a viable possibility if certain conditions are met. When Jesus Christ said, “Nothing is impossible with God,” that is precisely what he meant. Jesus also specifically outlined in detail the laws of the Kingdom that have to me met in order for there to be a release of supernatural power and the miraculous in this world. This is specifically what I am talking about. How is that those in occult-based religions and even Satanism understand more about the relationship between power and economic prosperity and the methodology of accessing the supernatural than Christians and just everyday people do? The answer is that corporately they have studied, understood and experienced the supernatural realm.

Throughout history and in the Biblical accounts there are numerous records of God suspending so-called natural law or so-called reality and transforming it by the supernatural power of the miraculous. In actuality the Bible is far more than a religious book. It is a supernatural book that deals with multiple dimensions, existence out of time and space, genetics, DNA, neurological science, Transhumanism, economics, military science, medicine, nutrition, quantum physics, and the supernatural. Unfortunately, modern Christianity in the last 100 years has promoted a reductionist philosophy for understanding the Bible. Purely on a cultural and arbitrary basis, the Bible which has supernatural authorship has been reduced to an almost absurd set of irrelevant teachings. The result has been ridicule and rejection by the mass culture and rightly so. Why would anybody in their right mind and who has any intelligence accept a religious cartoon-like culture that is devoid of real supernatural power, intelligence and creativity?

When a nation or individual enters into supernatural communication with the Personal Living God of the Universe, all things become possible. Neurological, economic and so-called scientific barriers are removed and one views the eternal horizon of infinity. Those who operate on the laws of the Kingdom can supersede current economic forecasting and economic factors. Coming from another dimension as if it were out of the blue there can appear new technologies, economies, and new organizational and financial systems that can open the doors to a New American Golden Age where the economy grows faster than the speed of light. This system is supernatural, but it is rooted in the promise of God to give a person or nation the power to get wealth. In addition, in accordance with the blessings outlined in Deuteronomy 28, an economic boom can materialize, if the spiritual laws are met, such as repentance and the turning away from evil.

When Jesus Christ taught the laws of the kingdom, He emphasized the need for believing, faith and asking God to do the impossible. These were not “Greeting Card” sentiments; they were the mathematical formulae for calling resources in from another dimension. I believe that as we think about the various scenarios that could play out in the next several years, a New Golden Age for America must be seriously considered. The only thing that would prevent it is either the will of God or our activating laws of the Kingdom which would shut it down. Conversely, if we activate the laws of the Kingdom which release this into our physical world, there are no limits to what is possible.

Severe flu season straining the resources of ERs around the country

flu-season5_0

With more than half of U.S. states experiencing high levels of flu-like illness — and flu activity continuing to rise, ERs across the country are seeing a surge in business — and some are struggling to keep up.

Currently, 29 states and New York City are reporting high levels of influenza-like-illness (ILI), and another nine states are reporting moderate levels of ILI. This season, 18 children have died from flu-associated deaths.

This year’s predominant flu (76 percent) is very similar to a type that caused a severe season in 2003-2004, when the flu shot wasn’t a good match and there were more than 40,000 associated deaths, said Dr. Marc Siegel, a member of the Fox News Medical A Team.

Illinois has been hit the hardest, according to the Illinois Department of Health; and 11 Chicago-area hospitals are now on bypass status, meaning they are so swamped with flu patients, they have to turn sick people away.

Melaney Arnold, spokeswoman for the Illinois Dept. of Health, said nearly 150 people have been admitted to intensive care units with the flu this season, and five have died.

Northwestern Medical Center in Chicago is one example of a hospital on bypass status. So if you’re in an ambulance because you have the flu, this hospital will have to turn you away. That doesn’t mean people can’t walk in there and still get treatment if they’re OK to do so, but it’s going to be a long wait.

The Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, Ill., reported that its emergency room has up to a three-hour wait, and a Good Samaritan doctor described the situation as “chaotic.”

“It’s not like you can just see them and out the door they go. They’re here for a while unfortunately, getting treatments,” said Dr. Tom Mullin of Good Samaritan. “Most of them we can fortunately discharge them home and treat them as an outpatient. But, it’s wreaking havoc on every emergency department in the city and the suburbs, I’ll tell you that.”

Doctors are advising patients to take anti-virals, like Tamiflu, as soon as symptoms start. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue, nasal congestion and muscle aches.

According to the CDC, it is likely the increased flu activity will continue for a while.  Based on the last 10 flu seasons, ILI remained at or above baseline for about 12 weeks – and up to 16 weeks during the 2005-2006 season. ILI remained above baseline for 19 weeks during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.

Mary Anderson, infection control manager at Edward Hospital in Chicago, said the hospital normally sees an average of 200 cases per season. But as of last week the hospital already has seen more than 260 confirmed cases.

In Rockville, Md., emergency room visits are up 20 to 50 percent, according to Dr. Michael Kerr, chief of staff and chairman of the department of Emergency Medicine at Medstar Montgomery Medical Center in Olney, according to wusa9.com. Kerr said the problem is area-wide, and extra doctors and nurses are on-hand to deal with swamped waiting rooms.

In Pennsylvania, Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest has set up a ‘flu tent’ to treat the overwhelming amount of patients coming through, according to nbcphiladelphia.com.

Terry Burger, hospital director of infection control at Lehigh, said, “If we can remove them from the main ED and put them in environment where everyone is masked and everyone can be protected, it’s safer for them and certainly safer for the staff.”

GMOs: The ultimate solution

GMO1

By now, most of us are aware of the GMO problem and the political corruption akin to it.

Monsanto claims that GMOs are safe. This was the same comment made by the tobacco companies back in the 40s and early 50s regarding cigarette smoking.

Now we know without a doubt that smoking and lung and throat cancer are kissing cousins. Because GMOs have been around for 15 years or so, with no long-term studies other than Monsanto’s being done, we only have Monsanto’s word that GMOs are safe.

Fortunately, there have been studies done by Michael Antoniou of Earth Open Source and Dr. Giles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caan in France that say otherwise.

What Antoniou and Seralini have found is that GMOs, which are inundated with pesticides like RoundUp Ready containing glyphosate and 2-4-D, the active ingredient in Agent Orange, create numerous health problems, including birth defects, cancer, neurological imbalances, embryonic deaths, DNA damage, and fetal death. It’s not rocket science to understand that when you eat a steady diet of these horrible chemicals, you will suffer disastrous health ramifications despite the fact that the GMO crops are designed to resist the heavy poisoning of the pesticides and herbicides.

So, where does the corruption tie in? Obviously with the politicians.

We know that when Obama campaigned in 2008, he promised he would label GMOs. When elected, not only did he renege on that promise but immediately appointed former Monsanto VP and attorney Michael Taylor, aka “Monsanto Mike”, as the Head of Food Safety at the Fraud and Drug Administration and Tom Vilsack, another biotech hooker, as the Secretary of Agriculture.

I don’t know about other States, but in Hawaii, from the Governor on down, almost all the Legislators have been bought, with none wanting to bite the hand that feeds them.

In Hawaii, Monsanto has six registered lobbyists – John Radcliffe, George “Red” Morris, Dawn Bicoy, Paul Koehler, Alan Takemoto, Fred Perlak, and Alicia Maluafiti. Radcliffe and Morris have an iron grip on our politicians and Maluafiti is the Executive Director of the Hawaii Crop Improvement Association and along with Radcliffe and Morris, they have bought off with thousands of dollars our, if you will pardon the expression, lawmakers. The other biotech monsters are Syngenta, Pioneer (DuPont), Bayer (aspirin anyone?), and BASF, each having their own lobbyists as well.

Recently at our City Council we had endless hearings on GMO labeling. Of the seven Council members, five were bought off and recommended that labeling should be done at the Federal level and put in the hands of the President, the FDA, and the Agriculture Department. Talk about frustration.

Yet, despite this endless array of governmental corruption, there is a bright note. Recently the Hawaii Board of Water Supply denied Monsanto’s request to use 2.6 million gallons of water a day to water their highly pesticide laden poisonous so-called food. Maybe there’s hope for use yet.

When studying the world we find that the countries of Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Madeira, New Zealand, Peru, South Australia, and Switzerland have rejected GMO and kicked out Monsanto.

In California, believe it or not, the counties of Mendocino, Trinity and Marin have banned GMOs.

The countries caring little for their people are Canada, China, England, the European Union, Philippines, South Africa, and the good ol’ U S of A.

Thailand and France are on the fence. Damned if they do and damned if they don’t. And if India had its way, Monsanto would be gone in a heart’s beat.

Recently, Jon Rappaport wrote and incredible article talking about how Monsanto loves the labeling issue and could not care less one way or another.

When I go into any of the mainstream supermarkets in Hawaii and watch the shoppers it blows me away. They go to a shelf, pick a product, and put it in their cart. Never once does anyone ever read the label. And, I see basically the same thing in the natural food stores.

What that tells me is that for the most part the people are clueless with any part of any issue with GMOs. In fact, if you ask most people what they know about GMOs, their response is usually, Whaaaaaaat?

And Monsanto loves that. So if labeling happens or doesn’t happen it’s a win-win situation for them. The few people that know about GMOs and read labels will not buy them but the clueless ones that never read labels anyway will continue to buy them. And Monsanto will continue laughing all the way to the bank.

So, I say, the hell with labeling. Let’s fight to BAN GMOs in the United States. Trust me, that’s a fight that will really get Monsanto’s attention. And if that happens, so many cockroaches will come out of the woodwork it will make your head swim.

For those of you that have never seen the film “Soylent Green”, please get it and watch it and realize that in the generations to come, if we do not unite and fight, Monsanto will ultimately open the first Soylent Green factory.

In closing and to apologize for saying the same thing over and over in every article I write about GMOs, if the following do NOT say non-GMO or organic, DO NOT BUY THEM – soy, corn, cotton.

Those are the big three to stay away from. Canola, whether it says organic or non-GMO, do not touch it with a 10 foot pole unless you can tell me how an industrial solvent can be organic and good for your health.

The biotech demons are also getting into alfalfa, sugar beets, and potatoes. So sprout your own alfalfa seeds or buy them from a reputable place where you can ascertain they are not GMO.

Stay way from sugar and go with honey or maple syrup. And for the most part, buy and eat as much organically grown vegetables and grains as you can to be safe.

And for you non-vegetarians out there, your dead animals are fed GMO grains as well as the feathers, blood, the dead, dying, diseased, and decayed animals not fit for sale, as well as road-kill. And if you are so fixed on the range-fed scam, it’s the saturated fat that found in all animal flesh that gives you just about every disease known to mankind.

Oh yeah, all the fish in the world are loaded with mercury, radiation, heavy metals and toxic wastes. And now, Frankensalmon does not have to be labeled as such.

Aloha!

A GOSPEL OF POWER

A GOSPEL OF POWER
by Gary Wilkerson

cross against the sky
The gospel of Jesus Christ is not a gospel of evangelism alone but of
sanctification. The power that saves us is the same power that keeps us and we
need to walk that out in fear and trembling. We need to learn the weapons of
our warfare and begin to grow and mature.

I say all that but I also have good news for you. There is a power available, a
work of the Spirit, that is profound, glorious, dynamic! When the Spirit of God
comes into the hearts of believers who stand firm in their foundation and
faith, they grow in maturity. A release of power comes in them that heals the
inside and closes the door to the outside. I love what Nehemiah, who is a type
of the Holy Spirit, says to those trying to gain entrance to Jerusalem.

“But I warned them and said to them, ‘Why do you lodge outside the wall? If
you do so again, I will lay hands on you’” (Nehemiah 13:21, ESV).

I picture Jesus standing at the door of my life! When Satan comes to buffet me,
Jesus is standing between me and the enemy, saying, “I warned you once. Back
off! You are in the wrong place.  You’ve started something you can’t
finish. You are dealing with somebody bigger than you.”

I picture the power of God on the wall of my life. On the inside I am clean but
I hear these things lodged on the outside crying out, “You can’t stay
clean.”

But I can stay clean because I have Jesus on the wall of my life, saying,
“Who do you think you are, Satan? What have you to do with my son, my
daughter, who is covered by the blood of the Lamb, cleansed and sanctified and
made holy? Who are you to speak these vile things?”

“In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us”
(Romans 8:37).

Jesus has caused us all to be overcomers in Him!

Study: 97 percent of children affected by 2009 mumps outbreak were vaccinated for condition

BANNER

More evidence has emerged showing the complete failure of modern vaccines to provide any real protection against disease. A recent study published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) reveals that an astounding 97 percent of children affected by a mumps outbreak that swept the Northeast back in 2009 had already been vaccinated for the condition in accordance with recommended government guidelines.

According to the study, 3,502 children of primarily Orthodox Jewish upbringing developed mumps between June 28, 2009, and June 27, 2010, as a result of an unusual “face-to-face” educational method used at certain all-boys Jewish schools throughout the New York and New Jersey areas. Among those affected by the outbreak, 97 percent were said to be Orthodox Jewish persons, and nearly one-third were between the ages of 13 and 17.

After confirming 1,648 cases of infection using clinical specimens, the research team that compiled the study determined that 89 percent of all those who contracted mumps as a result of the outbreak had already been vaccinated at least twice for mumps, presumably with the controversial measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) combination vaccine that has been implicated in causing gastrointestinal disorders and autism. Another eight percent of the group had reportedly received only one dose of the mumps vaccine.

When combined, these percentages translate into a 97 percent vaccination rate among all those affected by the mumps outbreak, leaving only three percent unconfirmed as having ever been vaccinated. What this means, of course, is that the MMR vaccine was essentially useless in conferring protection in this case, at least as far as mumps is concerned, and that parents would do well to think twice about administering this toxic vaccine to their children.

“The epidemiologic features of this outbreak suggest that intense exposures, particularly among boys in schools, facilitated transmission and overcame vaccine-induced protection in these patients,” wrote the authors in their conclusion, basically admitting that the mumps vaccine provides no real protection against the disease.

You can read the study’s abstract for free here:
http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1202865

MMR vaccine actually damages natural immunity, increases risk of disease contraction

But what exactly constitutes “intense exposure” anyway, and how is this really any different than common exposure? In an apparent effort to rationalize away the findings, some reports have suggested that because the group most affected was “boys in schools,” this particular outbreak was somehow unusual and atypical, and not indicative of the effectiveness of vaccines on a larger scale. But in reality, the findings show quite the opposite — that vaccines actually increase the risk of disease transmission.

Only a very small percentage of those affected by the outbreak, eight percent, had received one vaccination dose for mumps, while the vast majority of the rest had received at least two doses. This suggests that those who received two doses of MMR were actually more likely than those who received just one to contract the disease. Next to that, only a very small fraction of the remaining cases were unaccounted for, which suggests unvaccinated individuals actually had the highest levels of immune protection during the outbreak.

The takeaway from all this is that the “herd immunity” concept we are constantly told is necessary to prevent disease outbreaks is absolute bunk. If anything, vaccinated children are the ones most responsible for spreading disease during an outbreak, as the viral components delivered to their bodies through vaccines are shed onto primarily immunocompromised individuals, who just so happen to be other vaccinated individuals. There is simply no other way to validly interpret these and other similar findings in recent years, which only further prove that vaccines are neither safe nor effective.

I WILL RESTORE TO YOU by David Wilkerson

I WILL RESTORE TO YOU
by David Wilkerson
[May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]

joel-2-vs-252

“I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten” (Joel 2:25). The
New American Standard Version says, “I will make up to you for the years . . .
eaten.”

This promise is incredible! We want to make up those lost years when we
weren’t following Him, to make amends and repay Him! But He says, “Wrong! You
cannot repay Me for a single wasted hour. Walk before Me in righteousness now
and turn from your sins, and I will make up all the losses, whether they were
yours, your family’s, or Mine!”

To repentant sinners the Lord declares, “Fear not . . . be glad and rejoice:
for the Lord will do great things” (Joel 2:21). You need not be ashamed of your
wasted years. God is going to remove from you the evil army, and you will eat
and be satisfied. You will never again be ashamed (see Joel 2:19-20, 26-27).

You were born for His eternal purposes. He planned for you a life of
satisfaction, joy and usefulness in His kingdom but then sin entered, and God’s
plan for your life was interrupted. The devourer moved in and years were wasted,
lost.

But now, in Christ, all is new—even the calendar! The Lord goes back to the
day the locust came, and He removes all those wasted years and starts counting
again from the moment you repent. All those blessings you missed were stored
up. All the joy, peace, revelation and usefulness that you thought were dead
and gone forever were actually kept by the Lord.

In hell, the damned may be haunted with a vision of what their lives could have
been. Some may see what they lost. But this is not so for the repentant. All
will be restored. They need never again say, “Oh, what I missed. What I could
have been. God had so much for me, but I blew it.” No! God can restore all the
wasted blessings.

The Lord desires to pour out on us all the blessings and joys in Him that we
missed earlier. Yet He does not make it all up with outpourings alone. The
outpourings become overflowings! “And the floors shall be full of wheat, and
the vats shall overflow with wine and oil” (Joel 2:24).

There is such power in repentance. It brings back to us all that the cankerworm
destroyed. God resurrects it all!
