Heaven Bound? Where God’s Word & Rule Alone Operates!

posted by Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
July 18, 2017

21st Century Christians must be reminded: if they plan to go to heaven eventually, God’s Word and His Will are all that matter up in the planet called ‘The Heaven of Heavens’.  That ultimate Heaven does not operate on a democracy or majority rule or anything like that.

Every being—whether human, angel or beast–up in Then Heaven where God Alone rules, devote themselves wholeheartedly to worshipping God, praising Him, learning about Him, obeying Him and seeking to please Him and His Dear Son, The LORD Jesus Christ.

What passes for Christianity today—especially in the United States—is woefully short of those standards.  No, God has not changed His mind about such subjects as: homosexuality; racial, economic and political superiorities or ‘hatreds’; practices of ‘light’ witchcrafts; apostate denominations which claim Christianity but lie; preachers, prophets, and singers who woefully misdirect from pulpits, broadcasts, on-line and other platforms, etc.

Look in His wholesale Christian Bible where He insists: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6: 9 – 10).”

Again the Apostle writes: “Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5: 21).”

And once more so that the wealthy won’t think they can escape, Apostle Paul emphasizes: “For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God (Ephesians 5: 5).” Note that those who love money instead of loving and obeying God are in the same class as sexual slave sellers.”

The LORD Jesus gave His life so that true Christians would inherit The Kingdom of God and live and rule the universe with Him and His Father. People refusing to read and obey His Word, or to repent for not doing so, should not think they will go to live for all eternity where He, His Father, and millions of true Christians from the last 6,000 years will be.

So, please do as Apostle Peter warns all believers:  “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1: 10 -11).”

What Are ‘Christians’ Practicing in Church Today?

posted by Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
June 3, 2017

        For weeks this blogger has struggled with ways to discuss what Praise and Worship towards God means as intended in His Holy Word.  The matter has come up because of what too often now passes for such attention to The Godhead.  Today what is said to be purposed for and about Our Heavenly Father, and His Beloved Son, The LORD Jesus Christ, as presented by and through the anointing of His Holy Spirit—in so many churches today is far from what The Scriptures ever intended.

What claims to be adoration for God in too many 21st century places of worship in the United States today, is essentially entertainment, which Merriam Webster defines as “. . . amusement or diversion provided especially by performers . . . something diverting or engaging.”  Just because a pastor or choir director sanctions an “act” performed to supposedly “Christian” music, does not mean they have enveloped their “Christian” audience into an attitude of praise or worship for and towards The Godhead.

In fact, the meaning and action involved in such words as “bless,” “thanks,” “praise” can be used toward people as well as toward God.  The same dictionary defines the word “bless” specifically as applied to people: 1. “ . . .to hallow or consecrate by religious rite or word asked the priest to bless their marriage Bless this home. 2 religion :  to hallow with the sign of the cross He blessed himself before liftoff. 3:  to invoke divine care for bless your heart —used in the phrase bless you to wish good health especially to one who has just sneezed. . .”

Obviously, true believers must have their minds on who is the object of the use such praise and worship words– i.e. “Son, you are a blessing to me,” or “we want to praise Brother Johnson because of his fine work on the decorations,” or “thank you so much for your kind friendship.” Such words are used in human discourse by and about people all the time.  But care must be taken when such words are used in Church Services and intended to be toward God.

When people see what could be defined as “entertainment” at church—regardless of whether it is classical high brow or more low brow cultural music—they must be aware of Who or what is the object of such praise.  In other words, is certain music played because it is part of one’s background or culture, or arouses certain emotions, or takes one back to particular memories?  All of these human reactions however, may not involve God at all. God’s people should hallow or hold His Church as Holy, not for any purposes of entertainment. The Godhead alone is to be the sole Divine Object of Christian praise and worship.

Now “worship” is in itself a term solely to apply to The Divine and Holy Godhead. Webster’s definition of worship insists that it is:  “. . . reverence offered a divine being or supernatural power; also : an act of expressing such reverence; extravagant respect or admiration for or devotion to an object of esteem.”  True Worship comes from the heart and soul of God’s people, when they put all of their thoughts, emotions and will on Him! It is never an act of going through habitual rituals.

For instance, God instructs the prophet Zechariah in wholesale Christian Bibles to tell church members in his day: “Then came the word of the LORD of hosts unto me, saying, Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, even to me? And when ye did eat, and when ye did drink, did not ye eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves?

“Should ye not hear the words which the LORD hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when men inhabited the south and the plain? (7: 4 – 7).”  In other words, in their prosperity, believers in those days simply went through the rituals of praising and worshipping God.  They went through the motions for themselves, not for Him. Their hearts were not into worship for Him.  And as the prophet continues, they soon lost their prosperity, and their nation.  Today, God’s people must turn away from ritual ‘entertainment’ and return with repentant hearts to their Savior, and Almighty God, or else today’ half-hearted Christians follow in that nation’s same fallen footsteps.

Please Avoid This BIG MISTAKE!

posted by Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
April 25, 2017

Something is amiss in the professed Body of Christ.  Some well known ministries are warning that believers must store up to 25 years of food in case of power failure or war or some other dreaded tragedy.  Most interesting are two recent articles in Charisma Magazine giving professed Christians instructions on how to stay alive in case they miss the Rapture—i.e. Christ’s Return near the earth to call true believers up to Him and take them to heaven.

On his daily broadcast, Pastor and TV Evangelist Jim Bakker speaks continuously that those who trust in God must start storing up food in preparation for holocaust-type events soon to take place on earth—especially in the U.S.  God knows Bakker has gotten more than his share of persecution in past decades, but the publicized Body of Christ admits that he has more than come back from scandals, divorce and years in jail cells.  Now on top of the Christian media heap again, Bakker daily warns believers to store buckets of specially prepared foods to get ready for the inevitable hard times just around the corner–hard times that may last two or three decades.

Similarly, in two articles—“What to Do If You Miss the Rapture, Part 1,” and “9 More Things to Do if You Miss the Rapture,” Dr. Dave Williams writes in Charisma News about at least 21 things professing Christians must do IF they miss the Rapture—i.e. if they are still here after Christ comes back to draw truly faithful and obedient Christians out of this world, taking them back to heaven with Him. (Just how does God’s Word define these two groups of professing Christians: hmm “Not every one that SAITH unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that DOETH the will of my Father which is in heaven (Matthew 7: 21).” (Caps added for emphasis!)

Williams—“ for over 30 years as pastor of Mount Hope Church in Lansing, Michigan, with over 500 outreach ministries around the world”– calmly tells those who miss the Rapture not to kill themselves, not to stay in or near large cities, not to deny being a Christian if questioned by police (for it is better just to be killed and go immediately to heaven, rather than to deny him and go to hell), and above all, he warns DO NOT go to church. You see, immediately after the True Church is taken up into heaven, the seven-year Tribulation (described in Revelation 6 to 17 in wholesale Christian Bibles)–when Satan tries to totally rule the billions left on earth to swear unchanging allegiance to him by carving his mark into their bodies and praising his evil, evil deeds—begins.  So, why does Williams counsel erstwhile left ‘believers’ not go to church? Because Satan’s false prophets—who already rule in so many churches—will be in total control. The masks will come off.  And the goal of all false prophets is to get people to believe in the anti-Christ,  Satan’s last false god.

Why does this blogger find these two phenomena interesting to say the least? Because: No. 1 – True believers don’t have 25 years before Our Savior returns to take His true church to glory.  At best, we may have a decade or less. The Signs of this short period: check Watchers, etc. multiply increasing: earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, famines, diseases or pestilences, and disgraceful sinfulness (i.e. as in Sodom and Gomorrah) worsens daily.) See Matthew 24: 4 – 7. If things are so bad that power grids are out for months or years, the entire society will collapse: riots, thefts and murders will ensue.  So try protecting years of stored food from raving, murderous maniacs.

The second thing I want to shout about William’s good advice:  REPENT NOW.  Don’t wait to be left behind on earth after true Christians are gone.  Meekly come to His Throne, ask God’s forgiveness for neglecting Him and His Word, for loving money and the world more than you love Him, for staying in churches that you know do nothing but drain your faith. There are no possible substitutes for the True Gospel and the True Holy Spirit! Don’t take a chance that you can withstand Satan’s onslaughts during the Tribulation.  Pray now for yourself, your family, your friends.  Nothing, absolutely nothing in this present world, is worth your missing Jesus, the first time He comes back for you!

Prepare Now for The Lord’s Second Coming

posted by Jael Ever @ 7:00 AM
December 10, 2016

gladtidings    Last year, Bert Farias published the “Amazing 1927 Smith Wigglesworth Message” in which the noted prophet, evangelist and healer stated: “But there will be things that will happen prior to His coming that we shall know. . . You can tell. It is real fire from heaven that is making my utterances come to you to know that He is coming. He is on the way. . . There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared. We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away.”

Hmmm.  If Wigglesworth—who is known to have raised 14 people from the dead—said that half of the Christians in his generation were not ready for the return of Christ, what must that percentage of those “not ready” be in this generation? Twenty-five percent? Ten percent? Smith continues:  “This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.”

What words are these for this 21st century Christian confessing crowd: “purifying,” “holiness,” “separation” from the things of this world? This spiritual father must be joking: those words are anathema—or as Apostle Paul would say “accursed”–to most claiming to be part of The LORD Jesus today.
Today, women dress like men. Some men openly long to be women in their relationships with other men. Curse words flow like regular language out of the mouths of some who claim the Name of Christ. Yet all of these ‘ex-sinners’ claiming to be “born again,” at least sometimes, go to one kind of church or another.  Fasting and mid-week prayer services that wait upon God’s anointing are unknown devotions in the majority of these “church” fellowships today, but church dinners served by and to vastly overweight members remain the norm. And, really how many of the pastors overseeing these services are born again themselves? If they are not true Christians, then who has placed them to head what are suppose to be God’s churches? Satan, the wicked one, placed them there is the answer.

Wigglesworth adds:  “There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God who all the time are longing to be more obedient.”  Is he saying that only the latter group will be called up to join The LORD Jesus in the clouds as 1 Thessalonians 2: 19 promises: “For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming?” Is he saying further that the disobedient children will have to face the horrors of the coming tribulation, or as Paul says, the wrath to come: “. . . for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost (2: 16).”

Truly, as 2016 comes to a close, churches and Christians in the United States are badly in need of revival_usrevival—real Holy Ghost Spirit-filled revival. And if we don’t earnestly pray for this type of revival to sweep our land soon, these wrong types of churches, as well as this nation, stand very near the final judgment. The wholesale Bible promises in all of its 66 books, that God is coming to judge the earth. And earnest born-again committed Christians will return with Him to judge the earth:

“And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day (2 Thessalonians 1: 7 – 10).”

Ebola Update: Thousands Dead, New Congo Strain, World Withdraws

posted by Dr. Ad Versery Bored @ 15:24 PM
August 28, 2014

Ebola-Outbreak-Deterioration    Things deteriorate in West Africa: Thousands, including medical personnel, die from the Ebola Virus, food and medical supplies run low, some areas suffer quarantine, and international communities only slowly respond to this emergency.

Apparently the ZMapp ‘miracle’ drug doesn’t work on everyone as well as it did on the two American workers recently released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) hospital in Atlanta. The others who received the drug died recently. ZMapp and other suppliers work to produce more of the serum.

According to The Extension Protocol, as many as 13 people––including a doctor and four nurses––have died from a different strain of Ebola that broke out last week in the Democratic Republic of Congo, further south of the continent.
As in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, affected areas are on quarantine.

Desperate to keep those within quarantined areas from escaping, Liberian troops use tear gas, forced curfews, and fire live ammunition on potential escapees. Clair MacDougall and James Harding Giahyue of Reuters report that in Monrovia, some four people are injured during attempted escapes.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says it cannot contain the disease outbreak without another $ 430 million dollars. International officials are most concerned that the virus doesn’t jump to more heavily populated South Fighting-Keep-Ebola-Outbreak-ContainedAfrica, or spread further in Nigeria, the most prosperous African nation.

WHO told Giahyue:  “. . . the countries hit by the worst ever outbreak of the deadly virus were beginning to suffer shortages of fuel, food and basic supplies after shipping companies and airlines suspended services to the region. Liberia said its Ministry of Health warehouse had run out of rubber boots and bottles of hand sanitizer, essential for preventing the spread of the disease.”

Michael J. Nyenhuis, President of AmeriCares writes that it: “. . . has been working closely with our pharmaceutical donors . . supporting these health workers on the front lines. Shipments of urgently needed supplies and supportive care medicines to the affected areas are in transit,” but donations are urgently needed.

Meanwhile, Canada, China, the U. S., etc. have pulled their medical teams out of affected nations. The Economic Collapse.com pleads: “The outbreak of Ebola virus disease in west Africa is unprecedented in many ways, including the high proportion of doctors, nurses, and other health care workers who have been infected. To date, more than 240 health care workers have developed the disease in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone, and more than 120 have died.

“During past outbreaks, few health workers have contracted the virus. . .once the virus was identified proper safety measures were put into place, ‘cases among medical staff dropped dramatically.’  Unfortunately, . . this outbreak is ‘different’ and the virus continues to spread among medical personnel . . .When are people in the western world going to wake up and start taking this disease seriously?”

Good question! And when will those in the Body of Christ wake up and understand that the world needs genuine Holy Spirit-led revivals that include workers with gifts of healings?  As plus size Christian sweatshirts aver: “ . . . God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings (1 Corinthians 12: 28).” Please pray!

Ukraine/Crimea Crisis Harming U.S.,World Economies: WW3, Part 2

posted by Shopping4Bargains @ 9:00 AM
March 14, 2014

Russia-taking-Crimea      Russia’s move yesterday toward over-taking the rest of Ukraine has thrown world economies into a tail-spin––including the billionaire fortunes of its oligarchy.  U.S. stock markets fell several points. They remain nervous today.

Much of the concern is over Russia’s threat on its ‘right’ to invade all of Ukraine in order to “control violence” if Crimean residents vote this Sunday to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian federation.

Secretary of State Kerry’s attempts today to mediate a settlement with Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, failed.  Kerry told the Washington Post: “there will be consequences if Russia does not find a way to change course.” And he said there would be “an even greater response” if Russia were to “threaten the Ukrainian people,” such as by sending forces into eastern Ukraine.

Pointing out that China’s economy is also in down-fall, today’s ‘Investor’s Business Daily’ headlines: “U.S. stocks fell on higher volume Thursday, erasing this year’s gains for the S&P 500, as tensions in Ukraine and weaker data from China overshadowed reports showing an improving American economy.”

Agnes Lovasz of bloomberg.com avers: “President Vladimir Putin’s brinkmanship in Ukraine has already cost some of his closest comrades billions of dollars. The other 144 million Russians may also pay a price.”

Lovasz quotes Timothy Ash, chief emerging-market economist at Standard Bank Group Ltd. in London: “Russia will be the big loser of the crisis in Ukraine . . . There’ll be a big hit to domestic and foreign confidence, less investment and likely increased outflows, likely losses for Russian banks with exposure in Ukraine, a weaker ruble and weaker growth and recovery.”
In ‘Putin’s Ukraine Gambit Hurts Economy as Allies Lose Billions, Lovasz points out:  “The tensest standoff with Putin-Obamathe West since the end of the Cold War is exposing the weakness of an economy rebuilt on the back of the energy industry. With oil and gas accounting for more than half of all exports and energy prices stagnant, the growth potential is all but exhausted, prompting officials in Moscow to sound the recession alarm.” But a new economic war is a much louder alarm!

Thus, this whole Ukrainian drama may be to cover up the fact that Russia’s economy is failing, even as those in the rest of Europe and the U.S. recover! However, instead of helping its economy, the ‘war’ in Ukraine may well worsen it.

Karl Henkel on The Detroit News writes today in ‘Ukraine Crisis Makes Carmakers Wary of Russia’:  “The geopolitical struggle over Ukraine could slow growth in Russia’s auto market, which until recently was considered a diamond in the rough . . . but the problems facing [it] aren’t confined to its reaction to the uncertainty over the future of Crimea in the Ukraine.”

As discussed in the last ‘economy blog,’ Russia’s attempts to play offense in an economic war, belies its extremely defensive position.  Vladimir Putin is a very proud man who wants his nation to be on par with the U.S. and E.U.  To cover up his country’s failures, he will push for land and economic expansion until it starts a hot World War III, and China will, of course, join him for the same reasons.

But as used Christian Bibles promise:  “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16: 18).” Only this time, Putin will bring down many more in destruction other than himself, Russia, or the Ukraine!

Ukraine/Crimea Crisis Can Harm U.S. and World Economies

posted by Ida B. Wells IV @ 7:00 AM
March 10, 2014

ukaine-peopleThose reporting on U.S.EU-Russian tensions in the Ukraine seldom dwell on what the economic costs would be if the situation is not soon resolved. The United States has good reason to want Russia to back off its military aggression in Ukraine and the Crimea. Failure to do so will cost the U.S. and Europe great economic loss.

Tyler Allen of ibisworld.com warns: “Although the United States will likely remain unaffected in the short term, a prolonged or growing crisis could lead to long-term economic consequences, including trade sanctions and spikes in commodity prices.”

Ukraine and Crimea export 10% to 17% of global wheat and coarse grain production. “Fears that grain exports from the region could be interrupted caused agricultural commodity prices to spike.”

In ‘Ukraine and U.S. Economics: The Fiscal Consequences of Conflict Between Russia and Ukraine,’ Allen adds: “Russia is a growing market and supply chain partner for the US automotive, aerospace and energy sectors.

“Last year, US auto manufacturers exported $1.2 billion worth of goods to Russia, according to the United States International Trade Commission (ITC). General Motors, the largest auto manufacturer in the United States, sold 258,000 vehicles in Russia, giving it a 9.1% share of the total market in the country.”

In ‘5 Reasons War in Ukraine Should Worry You,’ Rich Smith lists the many ways Russia’s invasion in Ukraine can economic-repercussionseventually affect world economic markets, including: 1) Oil companies: Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron and Exxon, have $ 10 billion exploration agreements with Ukraine––disruption would affect gas prices; 2) Steelmakers: ArcelorMittal has one of the largest steel mills in Europe;

3) Consumer Goods: “Any number of consumer goods count Ukraine as an important market. Western purveyors of detergent, toothpaste, food goods, and so on, all operate within Ukraine, and many own subsidiaries in the country.

4) Military Suppliers: In order for Ukraine to strengthen its military weaknesses, it will eventually have to acquire better weapons; and that would call for: 5) Airplane Makers: Smith advises “Ukraine is an important market for foreign commercial aircraft. Ukraine International Airlines has four Boeing 737-900s on order. UTair-Ukraine is an even bigger customer––and has 40 Boeing new 737s on order.” A cancellation would greatly affect the U.S. economy.

Danny Vinik adds in ‘The Crisis in Ukraine Could Hurt Your Wallet:’ “. . . the chance of an armed conflict in Ukraine is growing by the hour. If that happens, there would be economic costs that could ripple across the global economy—and even cause higher gas prices and plane fares in the U.S.”

He and other economists explain the European Union would sustain even greater losses in crude oil and natural gas as the EU imports 85% of these fuels from Russia. “But prices are set by the global market. Any supply shocks in Europe that send prices higher will have ripple effects that raise gas prices in the United States.” Vinik writes that such prospects already affect economic markets.

This blog’s sister site, worldscollide-culture-christianity-endoftime.com speaks continually of the pending World War III. But there is more than one type of war. Now it appears that the world is indeed headed for an all-out economic war.

As phrases often embedded in Christian Word puzzles say, now is the time to pray and to: “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called . . . (1 Timothy 6: 12).” A believer’s faithful prayer changes things.

China and Russia: Some People Don’t Want to be Part of Empires

posted by admin @ 21:42 PM
March 4, 2014

Why Russia thinks it needs a piece of Ukraine, when it faces severe terrorism from Muslims in the Caucasus, or why China usually ignores Muslim rebels in Uyghur––pose intriguing questions. Some areas are too large to rule over.

In warning about possible Muslim attacks before the Sochi Games, Hayes Brown wrote:  “The states of Dagestan, Ingushetia, and Chechnya both lie beyond the Caucasus mountain range from Krasnodar Krai, home to Sochi, and that is what has Russian officials the most concerned.

China-knife-attack        “All three states have majority Muslim populations that have struggled against Moscow’s rule for decades, with Chechnya in particular fighting several all-out wars launched to keep them within the Federation. Russian President Vladimir Putin came to power during the second of these wars, which saw him accused of using excessive force against civilians.”

Just as Putin refuses to understand that Ukrainians and Chechens want to be freed from Russian rule, his Chinese counterpart remains blinded about Uyghur Muslims, in Xingiang province, despite repeated attacks from Muslim rebels.

Last week, some 10 Muslim separatists covered in all black karate-type uniforms, and carrying unbelievably huge slaughtering knives hacked down some 30 innocent Chinese citizens in a crowded subway station, and injured 130 more.

That attack came a scant few days before the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and the National People’s Congress now being held.  The attacks mounted huge embarrassment to Chinese Communist China-knife-attack-2officials.

But it was not as bad as it could have been. In 2009, during heavy fighting between Uyghurs and ethnic Chinese in Xingiang some 200 people were killed. Most Muslims in Xingiang remain angered because China continually tries to restriction their culture and religion.  China cannot force people to be atheists.

According to Dennis Lynch of ibtimes.com:  “The Chinese government vehemently denies that it oppresses any minorities in Xinjiang and regularly claims the separatists are religious extremists that ‘mislead the public and deceive world opinion in order to escape blows dealt by the international struggle against terrorism’.” Rebels have resisted Chinese with riots, bombing, etc. all this century.

Lynch posits the rebels want to be fully independent of China in a separate Uyghur state, known as East Turkestan. This makes some sense as “Xinjiang borders Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.”  And most of those nations are Muslim as well.

Again, why China expanded its rule over the region in 1949 is unexplainable.  Why do China and Russia insist on ruling over people who resist their rule?  To further express discontent, two Uyghur terrorists set a SUV on fire and ran down two tourists in the middle of Beijing’s famous Tiananmen Square.

Bible prophesies promise that very soon, no nation will be able to rule over another for The LORD Jesus Christ will rule over then all:  “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats (Matthew 25: 32).”

Deadly Ocean Jellyfish: More Destroyers of Life as We Know It!

posted by Sarah N Worthy IATTWJ Member @ 18:15 PM
November 3, 2013

jellyfish-sign        Asia’s obsession with eating Ancient Sea Turtles, and other anomalies from greedy sea hunters––i.e. garbage dumping, overfishing, and waters infected by Global Warming––has freed avaricious jellyfish to take over the world’s oceans.

By feasting continuously on fish eggs, these deadly stinging beasts make ‘normal’ fish populations disappear. They attack industrial energy lines, stop up fish hatcheries, and make normal human livelihood along ocean coasts impossible.

Ecologist Sun Song, from China’s Institute of Oceanology contends that jellyfish taking over oceans drives civilization back “to the Precambrian world, more than 550 million years ago.” Such warnings should awakened world leaders?

In reporting on his study, ‘Massive Outbreak of Jellyfish Could Spell Trouble for Fisheries,’ for Yale University’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, Richard Stone says:

“In recent years, populations of several jellyfish species have made inroads at the expense of their main competitornomura—fish—in a number of regions, including the Yellow Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Black Sea.” Stone is particularly concerned about the monstrous Nomura’s jellyfish:

“It’s the size of a refrigerator—imagine a Frigidaire Gallery Premiere rather than a hotel minibar—and can exceed 450 pounds.”  For decades this giant was only seen in the Sea of Japan.  Then Stone writes that something changed:

“Since 2002, the population has exploded—in jelly parlance, bloomed—six times. In 2005, a particularly bad year, the Sea of Japan brimmed with as many as 20 billion of the bobbing bags of blubber, bludgeoning fisheries with 30 billion yen in losses. . . Jellyfish blooms can be caused by eutrophication, which can create dead zones around mouths of rivers.”  Again, dead zones kill all fish life in waters.

AFP News adds that jellyfish endanger large fish eatable for mankind: “Marine biologists say they have proof that excessive trawling of small fish species leads to proliferation of jellyfish, a worsening phenomenon whose causes have been unclear.” For example, “In the 1960s, the waters off Namibia used to yield 10 million tons of sardines annually. This has been replaced by 12 million tons of jellyfish,” says Philippe Cury at France’s Institute for Development Research.

Dr. Ever posted on this blog three years ago:  “God created this earth with a delicate balance of the ecosystem. . . . sea turtles are needed to eat jellyfish or else jellyfish consume all fish and plant life beneath them . . .”  But nations in charge of stopping sea turtle slaughters ignored such warnings.  And now it may be too late.

Jellyfish stings are the most deadly ocean killers, even killing greater numbers than sharks.  Its poisons can kill a human being in less than three minutes.  Such carnage will surely ruin most tourist industries.  And, of course, lost of eatable fish will likewise destroy seafood businesses, also affecting grocery sales.

So sea turtles and fish now view their last days on earth.  How soon can the same be said for mankind, whose foolish leaders see neither the present nor future enemies in nature that their own negligence created?

Perhaps this is why the Book of Revelation refers to Satan’s anti-Christ as “a beast rise up out of the sea (13: 1),” or why after “. . . the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea (21: 1),” God will have to destroy His beautiful seas, as jellyfish will have eaten everything in them!

Don’t Celebrate U.S. Consumers: Today Is World Food Day!

posted by Frank Butterman Food Inspector @ 19:02 PM
October 16, 2013

Download-the-Ending-Hunger-Anthem-for-the-G8-Enough-Food-for-Everyone-IF-One-Voice_web    Today a few knowledgeable people attempt to celebrate World Food Day, but sadness prevails among them.  Some in richer nations continue to exorbitantly waste food, while others in poorer situations constantly battle starvation.

Eager advocates still hope to establish what they refer to as global food security.  As Nicholas Nelson, North American Director of the Food and Agriculture Organization explains: “To live in a world free of hunger, we must create food systems that ensure a plentiful supply of nutritious food with minimal impact on our environment.

“Our food systems must consider sustainability in every step of the supply chain: from production to processing, transportation to retail, and consumption to post-consumption waste.”  But economic interests interfere with such idealism.

In ‘Masses of Food Wasted––‘Use By’ Dates Mislead,’ Carolyn Lochhead of SFgate.com writes:  “Americans throw away 40 percent of the food they buy, often because of misleading expiration dates that have nothing to do with safety.”

Her findings are based on a study by Harvard University Law School and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).  Dana Gunders of the NRDC claims:  “The date labeling system is not a system at all.” It is based entirely on what retailers call “inventory control.”

Ted Labuza, University of Minnesota food science professor, says such control is based on what food ‘makers‘ and ‘sellers‘ believe to be peak quality.  “If food looks rotten and smells bad, throw it away, but just because it reaches a certain date does not mean the food is unsafe.  I don’t know of any food poisoning outbreak that came from people eating food that was past its shelf-life date.”

Thus, to preserve profits for such manipulators, almost half of the food in the U.S. is labeled ‘spoiled.’  In ‘About 40 Percent Of All Food In The United States Is Thrown In The Garbage, The Economic Collapse reveals:

“Even though 47 million Americans are on food stamps and millions of children go to bed hungry in this country every single night, we continue to waste approximately 263 million pounds of food every single day of the year.  One day people will look back and regard us as probably the most wasteful society in the history of the planet.”  The Seattle times says that such wasted food takes up more space in landfills than any other trash.

“Some $900 million of expired food is dumped from the supply chain annually, much of it a result of confusion. wasting-foodMisinterpreted date labels cause the average American household of four to lose as much as $455 a year on squandered food, according to researchers.”

So congratulations to those in the richest country on earth with enough abundance to throw away half of it to rot, contaminating land fills with massive greenhouse gas methane, emitting double the potency of deadly carbon dioxide.

Such waste is grievous sin in the eyes of God, and may well result in ultimate judgment.  As Bible prophecies quote Him:  “I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools (Isaiah 42: 15).”
