More Flu Deaths, New Flu Strains, Spreading Illnesses in the U.S.

posted by Dr. Ad Versery Bored @ 17:58 PM
February 5, 2014

bird-flu-China-H1N1    As the U.S. battles hundreds of cases of H1N1 Flu, hundreds die in China from H7N9 Flu, Hong Kong slaughters thousands of chickens attempting to cull out the H7N9 bug, and Chinese scientists fear the spread of a different bird flu, labeled H10N8. It is the fifth new flu strain to explode upon the world in 17 years.

Chinese scientists report special concern to the Lancet Medical Journal because this new strain “appears to be able to infect tissue deep in the lung and may have features allowing it to spread efficiently among humans. . . . The pandemic potential of this novel virus should not be underestimated.”

As of today, California has reported 147 H1N1 flu-related deaths. Donna Westlund of claims:  “This number does not include an additional 44 deaths that are currently under investigation as being flu-related. If those cases are confirmed, the number of deaths due or related to the influenza virus in California residents under the age of 65 will rise to 191.”

The 2012-13 flu season only resulted in 106 flu-related deaths, a number reached in just one month this season. But last year’s H3N2 flu strain primarily attacked the sick and elderly, whereas H1N1 attacks young and healthy victims. As L.A. Times’ Eryn Brown writes:  “. . . at the same point last year, only 14 people in that age group had died of the flu.” He insists the numbers of death will rise.

Dr. Lyn Finelli of the CDC argues: “H1N1 is sending sufferers to the doctor at rates that are 50 percent higher than normal for flu-like symptoms. this is way above the norm, which signals that the U.S. is only halfway through flu season.”

According to the CDC’s ‘Flu View’Map, ending January 25, 2014,  Flu cases are extremely high in California, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Kansas, Missouri.

Dr. Jonathan Fielding who is “urging people to be immunized, stating that there is time to do so because the flu is going to be around for months.” His warning is especially for high-risk groups––the elderly, pregnant women and those with underlying illnesses. CDC does not publish total flu deaths, only those of children. Moreover, their insistence of limited monthly reports raises suspicions.

Few have published calculations of flu results because of the United States importing chicken from China.  But flu-passing-from-person-to-personwhat happens when China’s H7N9 virus reaches the U.S., or even when the new H10N8––which may pass from person to person––comes to this country? And even fewer publish the connection of these rising flu statistics during record cold, icy, below-zero temperature weather.

Increasing occurrences of various types of flu, along with upward multiple deaths indicate the possibility of rolling epidemics.  And symptoms of H10N8 multiply that possibility.  Chapter 6 of the Book of Revelation posits that such epidemics will bring millions of deaths in these end times.

2014 must become the year of prayer to The Merciful God “Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases (Psalm 103: 3),” in The Name of His Son:  “ . . . they that had any sick with divers [various] diseases brought them unto Him and He laid hands on every one of them, and healed them (Luke 4: 40).”

Teaching Truth to Save Us: Scholar Persecuted for Telling the Truth

posted by Sarah N Worthy IATTWJ Member @ 13:15 PM
December 10, 2013

direpredictionsBattles to shed lights of truth on Global Warming remain hard fought.  Moneyed interests still multiply their wealth regardless of who their factories kill along the way. These battles probably cost Al Gore the Presidency. Sometimes bits of truth on the subject are shamed out of media. But few have suffered the years of rejection, harassment and threats which Dr. Michael Mann, PhD endures.

Summarizing threats Mann––who shared the Nobel Prize with V. P. Gore for his work on Climate Change––endured since publishing ‘The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines,’ DarkSydeFollow writes:

“Imagine a place where you and your family are threatened, your employer pressured by the most powerful people on earth to fire you, your email hacked and posted by the usual suspects in accusatory snippets, and where a mysterious letter containing white powder mixed in with tons of traditional hate mail land in your inbox.”  Sounds like stuff for a mystery novel?  But no:

“That’s life in the land of the free and the home of the brave for prominent climate scientists these days. . . . It’s a David and Goliath struggle between scientific truth and corporate propaganda, with nothing less than the biosphere of planet earth in the balance.”

To answer a question about Climate Change and Hurricane Sandy, the Haiyan storm, etc. during a recent radio interview, Dr. Mann replies:  “It’s really this simple: we predicted decades ago that we would see more frequent and intense heat waves, more widespread drought, more catastrophic flooding events, etc.

“And now that we are indeed seeing this come true, as we predicted would be the case if we continued to burn fossil fuels and elevate atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, the burden is no longer on those arguing for a connection, but on those arguing for the lack of a connection.”

He explains that these weather anomalies are occurring because earth is in an atmosphere 1.5-degrees Fahrenheit warmer, with four percent more moisture generating hurricanes, typhoons, and other weather attacks––all because corporations, their paid politicians, and too-often paid-for- advertising media scream as loud as they can to deny the truth.  Mann further asserts:

“The answer is, yes—the record heat, drought, devastating wildfires, coastal flooding events, etc. that we are seeing is norfolk_sea_level_floodalmost certainly a result of human-caused Global Warming and Climate Change. And it will get much worse if we don’t do something to curtail our ever-escalating burning of fossil fuels.”

In Bible prophecies, College Professor PhDs are called scribes.  Those scribes in Scripture who betrayed truth for fame or money are condemned as hypocrites who know nothing about responsibilities of scholars to tell the truth.  But God lauds the rare exception of fearless absolute truth-telling scribes. Ezra, who wrote the Old Testament book bearing his name, was a most honorable scribe who led Israel out of its second enslavement in Babylon (Iraq).

The Bible speaks of him: “This Ezra went up from Babylon; and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses, which The LORD God of Israel had given: and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of The LORD His God upon him (7: 6).”  Dr. Mann is an Ezra-type scribe: a man who endures persecution to deliver the message God gives him to save earth’s billions of people.  Let us pray that God will bless, reward and preserve Dr. Mann and his family forever.

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!

Global Warming Driving Planet Into Death & Human Extinction, Pt 2

posted by Dr. Ad Versery Bored @ 17:03 PM
September 10, 2013

Global-Warming-For-Dummies-Book    Global Warming threatens America’s food, families and ultimately, its security.  As shoppers watch grocery prices sky-rocket, and new diseases rush onto the nation’s shores, the inevitable question arises:  when will the government get serious about stopping the effects of these horrendous climate change.

A decade ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) began warning leaders of nations that climate increases would bring diseases.  In 2006, Kristie L. Ebi, public health consultant for WHO, warned that climate change could overwhelm public health services. Yet little as  been done about the causes of Global Warming.

Last year, a group of climate scientists and public health researchers predicted “ . . . global warming will lead to higher incidence and more intense versions of disease. The direct or indirect effects of global warming might intensify the prevalence of tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, dengue and Lyme disease . . .”

Professor Gerald Friedland from Yale’s School of Medicine added: “Global warming will likely cause major population upheavals, creating crowded slums of refugees [making] residents more vulnerable to diseases . . .”

Dr. Maria Diuk-Wasser, also from Yale, theorized:  “. . . global warming may increase the infection rates of mosquito-borne diseases . . .Warming, and the floods associated with it, are like to increase rates of both malaria and dengue, a viral disease . . . transmitted by mosquito bites. . .effects of temperature increase are an increase in . . . mosquito biting rates, which increase contact rates with humans.”

This year, in ‘How Much Disease Would Climate Change Cause?,’ WHO gives the same warnings.  But, as the nation watches huge crops of mosquitoes spring up from coast to coast, still few in charge seem to be seriously listening.mosquito460

Even as she discusses ‘Climate Change ‘Driving Spread of Crop Pests’,’ Rebecca Morelle of the BBC ‘re-assures’ readers that insects increasingly destroy our food crops driving up food costs:  “ . . . it is estimated that between 10% and 16% of the world’s crops are lost to disease outbreaks. The researchers warn that rising global temperatures could make the problem worse.”

She quotes Dr. Dan Bebber from the University of Exeter:  “Global food security is one of the major challenges we are going to face over the next few decades.  We really don’t want to be losing any more of our crops than is absolutely necessary to pests and pathogens.”

So there you have it!  Leaders continue to piddle around the edges of action, while Global Warming steals the nation’s foods, makes its population sick and weakens viabilities for long-lasting lives.  Medical communities around the world fight to hold back tides of exploding epidemics, but that won’t always work.

As world leaders refuse to act, only Almighty God can make the difference.  Please ask Him to stop the swiftly falling decline of the human race, and return His Son to take charge of this earth immediately.  As Apostle John prays at the close of the Book of Revelation: “Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus (22: 20).”

Wake Up! We’re In the Last Days: Egypt Now: Here Later? Part 3

posted by Sandra Repriestly @ 15:17 PM
August 21, 2013

Churches-620x412    Signaled by The New York Times and Washington Post, mainstream media is at last looking at the ways Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is destroying Christian churches. Hmm! Wonder why it took them so long, and what new news they bring.

Kareem Fahim Times’ story, ‘Islamists Step Up Attacks on Christians for Supporting Morsi’s Ouster,’ cites specifics on the number of churches lost in the attacks, as well as Christians killed:  “A Coptic Christian group, the Maspero Youth Union, recorded at least six deaths and the destruction of at least 38 churches, as well as attacks on at least 23 more.”

Fahim explains “The signs of trouble started to appear in Nazla about two weeks before the attack when graffiti appeared on some 300 Christian homes: “‘We’ll protect legitimacy with our blood,’ a mantra of Mr. Morsi’s supporters, who have insisted that he be restored to power.”

He adds that Christians in Nazla spent 13 years collecting money to build a church, school, youth center and wedding hall––all destroyed by Brotherhood mobs.  Even one Christian orphanage was burned to the ground. Again, in all cases, The Times reports, police and firefighters were no where to be found.

In her Washington Post story, ‘Ravaged Churches Reveal Sectarian Split Feeding Egypt’s Violence,’ Abigail Hauslohner summarizes citizens in Beni Mazar had to borrow keys to a fire truck hoping to save an evangelical church:

“It was one of more than 60 churches that have been attacked, vandalized and in many cases set aflame across Egypt Church-Fire-Sohagin a surge of violence against Christians.” Yet the government still has not provided security for churches.

Hauslohner’s title is based on cities in the Nile Valley which have much larger Christian populations than the 10% norm for Egypt, saying sectarian rivalries between Muslims and Christians frequently turn violent.

She adds:  “Some “five or six” bearded Islamists with assault rifles broke through the evangelical church gate in Beni Mazar around midday Aug. 14, the owner of a Christian bookstore next door said in an interview this week.

“The accomplices carried off thousands of dollars’ worth of computer, video and audio equipment, as well as air conditioning units, before setting the church on fire.”  But when they saw two Washington Post reporters inspecting damage done to a Christian charity, plainclothes police officers carrying assault rifles ran up to claim that they couldn’t help because they were under attack themselves.

These newspapers are the major beacons for truth in the U.S. If they had spoken sooner lives, homes and churches may have been saved.  Our writers would normally end this blog with Scriptures about the duties of journalists as watchmen.

But bigger quandaries are silences from U.S. church leaders.  Do they care nothing for Christians overseas?  Jesus’ words in wholesale Christian Bibles says it best:  “Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me (Mark 7:6).”

EU Members North and South No Longer Trust the EU

posted by Ida B. Wells IV @ 20:42 PM
June 19, 2013

600px-EU_neighbourhood_initiatives       The European Union (EU) is falling apart. Most citizens of EU nations no longer want to be in it. This dissatisfaction is in both indebted southern nations,  and the richer northern countries see themselves as victims of bad EU policies.

In one of their top stories recently, news services explain:  “Public confidence in the European Union has hit rock bottom, a recent survey reveals. Since the onset of the euro crisis, Europeans have lost faith in the bloc, even in pro-European countries, like Germany.”

Jose Ignacio Torreblanca, Spanish political scientist and Senior Research Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, says the entire continent is affected with “growing skepticism” about the European Union:
“Only 20 percent of Spanish citizens trust the EU, compared to 56 percent in 2009. Crisis-battered Italians turned into euro-skeptics as well – trust there fell from 52 percent to 31.”

Such statistics may be expected in southern Europe.  However adds:  “But the European Union has also lost its prestige in countries that are considered economically stable; for instance, Germany and France. Only 30 percent of Germans now trust the EU, compared to 2009 when that figure was 14 percentage points higher. French trust has dropped 8 percent to 34 percent.”

In a joint article, “The Remarkable Rise of Continental Euroscepticism,” journalists from several nations comment.  Elrike Guerot writes that Germans feel betrayed, and that EU’s failure they will have to pay higher taxes or endure higher inflation. “The Eurobarometer data shows that 56% of Germans have “no trust” in the EU while only 30% have a “fairly positive” image of the EU.”

Thomas Klau says France is no exception:  “ In 2012 the number of French respondents who “tend not to trust” the EU april27 pEU rose to 56 % from 41% in 2007.” Hans Kundnani writes, Britain has an even lower opinion: “The percentage of those who “tend not to trust” the EU has gone from 48% in 2004 to nearly 80% in 2012.”

Contrarily, Silvia Francescon argues that while Italy’s youth with 40% unemployment no longer want in the EU, a large majority don’t want to leave, they just want the system to be more “flexible and symmetrical.”  Dimitar Bechev of Bulgaria also writes his nation is pleased with EU.

Piotr Buras adds:  “ . . . the percentage of Poles who “tend not to trust” the EU (46%) is higher than the percentage of Poles who do “tend to trust” it (41%) – a remarkable development for a country that has traditionally been pro-European.”

EU politicians and citizens alike agree that what the EU lacks is a functioning democracy, which an ‘economy only’ union cannot provide.  Only a unified nation can do that.  And the odds of all of Europe agreeing to that are nil.

Besides, the Book of Revelation promises that only ten nations that will be part of the Revised Roman Empire when the anti-Christ arises, and how can 30 or 40 nations in the EU get down to ten?  Maybe there will be condensed by war!

More On Alarming Rise of Sinkholes––This Time in California

posted by Shopping4Bargains @ 17:10 PM
May 13, 2013

sinking-homes-sinkhole    Does anyone besides the crews at Earthend and a few other websites (including Worlds Collide) understand that increasing sinkholes around the world are sending earth’s inhabitants signals of pending destruction?

According to The Extinction Protocol and, $ 250,000 homes in Lake County, a Lakeport, California,––in ‘volcanic country’––some 100 miles north of San Francisco, are sinking fast into the earth, never to be seen again!

“Eight homes have been abandoned so far and 10 more are under an imminent evacuation notice after cracks appeared in the ground and entire sections dropped 10 feet into the ground.”

Scott and Robin Spivey had lived in their four-bedroom Tudor-style home for 11 years, but like many of their neighbors, they had to leave it when small cracks starting climbing up the walls.  By the time those cracks became huge fractures, their 600-square-foot garage had plunged some 10 feet below the street.

Scott DeLeon, the county’s Public Works Director, says that officials are just as confused as the devastated homeowners.  Admitting that some of the ‘movement’ is happening on shallow fill, DeLeon adds:

“We have a dormant volcano, and I’m certain a lot of things that happen here are a result of that, but we don’t know about this.”  A geologist warns that roads and structures can be compromised down to bedrock, 25 feet below surfaces.

“Considering this is a low rainfall year and the fact it’s letting go now after all of these years, and the magnitude that it’s many-houses-sinking-Lakeport-Californialetting go, well it’s pretty monumental,” DeLeon added.

In ‘’Slow-motion disaster’: California Houses Sinking into the Ground,’ Tracie Cone of Associate Press, who describes the neighborhood as “sweeping vistas of Clear Lake and the Mount Konocti volcano,” took her headline from Randall Fitzgerald, a writer living in the neighborhood, said “It’s a slow-motion disaster.”  Leaks from county water systems may contribute to the weakening.

Reporters claim all affected homes are slated for demolition, but the unstable ground can’t support the necessary equipment.  In fact, it is so bad that mail delivery is no longer allowed, and all 30 houses in the subdivision may have to go.

Homeowners  and the Lake County Board of Supervisors have petitioned California’s governor to declare an emergency to pay for county repairs and homeowner losses, as insurance companies claim such damages are not covered.

But, there are some things that politics and money cannot fix. Prudent believers should accept these increasing sinkhole disasters as warnings of far worse catastrophes to come.  As Christian messages promise, continuously calamitous sinkholes are signs of arrogant mankind’s push toward God’s final judgments:

“But if The LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, . . . and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked The LORD (Numbers 16: 30).”

Cyprus Banks: EU Financial Wars Leading to Bible Prophecies, Pt.4

posted by Ida B. Wells IV @ 16:26 PM
March 28, 2013

world-war-III    Either Germany’s European Union (EU) severely overplayed its hand in this continuing Cyprus bank crisis, or else this is the first step in their plan to squeeze nations into economic depression by seizing assets, collapsing jobs, and attacking small businesses in order to better ready member nations for WWWIII.

Bank depositors throughout the EU now greatly agitate over their finances.  Harold Maass writes: ‘Forget Cyprus: Why You Should Really Be Worrying About Italy’:  “ . . . the bailout imposes losses on people . . . unnerving investors in other eurozone countries, particularly Italy, where political instability threatens to undermine the government’s attempts to confront the country’s debt crisis.”

People in every EU nation find similar concerns on their own turf.  Guy Verhoftstadt suggests in ‘Avoiding the Next Cyprus’:  “Perhaps Malta, which has an even bigger banking sector than Cyprus . . .  much of it highly reliant on offshore depositors. Or maybe Latvia, fast becoming the destination of choice for Russian funds flowing out of Cyprus and now on course to join the euro zone.

“Even Spain or Italy could be vulnerable to a similar bailout, now that the Dutch finance minister, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, cyprus_mapwho is president of the Euro Group of finance ministers, has hinted that Cyprus could provide a model for the resolution of future banking crises.”
Cyprus is the key to understanding why the EU will probably disintegrate.  Bible prophecy students remain confident that the EUwill break up before the rise of anti-Christ and his seven-year reign.

Rule over Cyprus has always been a tense struggle between Greece and Turkey.  Greece is an EU member, Turkey is not. It is so intense that the United Nations has a Peace Keeping Force there to keep them from further armed conflict.

Both countries are part of what will be known as the Revived Greek Empire in these last days.  And they will, during the start of that seven year reign, be on one accord of agreement. Today they are not.  The same holds true for several Eastern European countries, which were part of the Roman Empire, and will be in the soon coming Revised Roman Empire.

These issues are part of Dake’s Reference Bible, especially in the Book of Revelation in the New Testament, and of Daniel in the Old Testament.  More depth is covered in Dake’s ‘Revelation Expounded:  Eternal Mysteries Simplified.’

Individuals may not be able to control their bank funds, but they can control their futures in the next World War.  Remember, only those who are ‘in Christ  Jesus’ are assured of everlasting safety in that coming War:

“ . . . the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. . . .Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing (Revelation 5: 5,12).”  When those seals are opened, judgment will fall upon earth, such as has never seen before!

13,000 Dead Pigs Dumped in A China River, But Who Is Guilty?

posted by admin @ 9:22 AM
March 22, 2013

china_dead_pigs    Well I’ve made it back to the East.  After assigning U.S. nuclear plant spills to others, Jael let me go. Other than broken water coolers in nuclear storage tanks, things are calm in Japan.  Stories abound on North Korea’s promise to bomb the U.S. and our allies to kingdom come. Only news about thousands of dead pigs found in China’s river take up more print and internet space.

Everyone already knows of the dreadful conditions of air and water quality in China. But these dead pigs mysteriously floating in a Shanghai river bring water pollution to a whole new level. It also casts shadows on China’s farm regulations.

By this week’s count, some 13,000 dead pigs have been pulled out of the Huangpu River, which flows through a major Shanghai commercial area, and supplies 22% of the drinking water for 23 million people living there.

The ‘pig dumping’ may comes from reaction to police campaigns against diseased pig meat showing up in area markets.  Associated Press (AP) reports, 46 people were sent to jail “for producing unsafe pork from sick pigs that they had acquired and slaughtered between 2010 and 2012.”

Those convicted are part of a gang that “acquired” diseased pigs. “The official Xinhua News Agency said police in the city of Wenling had seized 6,218 kilograms (13,708 pounds) of diseased pork,”  AP writes.

Pork is king in China’s diet.  Seed Daily and AFP News in Jiaxing say that it accounts for 64 percent of total meat output canned-portin 2012. But: “Thousands of dead pigs in a Shanghai river have cast a spotlight on China’s poorly regulated farm production, with the country’s favorite meat joining a long list of food scares.”

China struggles now to keep the diseased meats from getting into food markets. Pigs drawn out of the river test positive for porcine circovirus, a common swine disorder.  China’s Chief Veterinarian Yu Kangzhen hedges:

“Due to some farming households having a weak recognition of the law, bad habits, and lack of increased supervision and capability for treatment have led to the situation.”  He and other officials insists nonetheless that drinking water is safe.

Other than those few arrests, police have not uncovered the source of this outrageous number of drowned diseased pigs. “ . . . in Zhulin village, a major hog-raising centre in Jiaxing, the farmers claim their innocence in the scandal.”

This incident adds to a list of food industry scandals China has endured in the past few years.  Seed Daily recites:  “From recycled cooking oil to dangerous chemicals in baby milk powder, a series of food scandals in China has caused huge public concern.” Six babies died and 300,000 were sickened from the milk powder.

China is a Communist country which, by national edict, claims no belief in God.  Christian messages in God’s Holy Word demand a moral consciousness in all business dealings. But as, Titus 1:15 teaches:  “ . . . unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.”

Two Comets Flying Swiftly Toward Earth May Bring Surprises

posted by Newsworthy and Seerfar @ 11:02 AM
January 24, 2013

   Astronomers and other scientists are quite enamored with the possibilities of what two comets flying through space heading quickly toward Planet Earth may bring.  To arrive near earth this year, Comet ISON and Comet PANSTARRS are expected to shine brighter than Earth’s present moon.

Writing for The Science, Jim Colyer reveals that the name of Comet ISON “is an acronym for International Scientific Optical Network.”  Expected to peak in earth’s view by November, ISON is expected shine greatly.

In ‘Comet ISON and Comet PANSTARRS Will Make 2013 One Bright Year,’ Keerthi Chandrashekar of the L.A. Times lauds Vitaly Nevsky and Artyom Novichonok for discovering ISON.

Keerthi writes of ISON, “the Comet ISON will be visible in the northern hemisphere in late 2013. ISON will make a close pass by the sun, then sling around to pass Earth. All one has to do is look up to see it––the comet should be noticeable with the naked eye even during the day around late November. At night, ISON is expected to be brighter than the full moon.”

However, Comet PANSTARRS will be near Earth as early as March.  Its name “is an acronym for Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System, an array of telescopes and cameras in Hawaii, where the comet was discovered,” writes Colyer. adds further Comet ISON will approach the Sun from November to January, 2014, at which time “it is predicted to be brighter than the full moon in the nights sky, and to even be visible in broad daylight.”

Comet PANSTARRS will not be as bright, but it will still be seen near the sun. says that this comet seems to follow a very large and long orbit, and that it must have taken millions of years to come near Earth from the Oort Cloud, which supposedly is a part of the original protoplanetary disc that formed the sun and this part of the universe some 4.6 billion years ago.

However, Drs. Jael and Reprieslty see these comets as allegorical representations of The Second Coming of The LORD Jesus Christ to our Planet Earth.  Just as John the Baptist came before The LORD Jesus at His First Coming, a few Christians warn listeners to hastily prepare for His next arrival by turning to God with true repentance.

Of course, God the Father may be seen as that Oort Cloud from Which this part of the universe sprang forth.  Likewise Comet PANSTARRS could stand for John the Baptist who called on all men to repent just as these ministers do now.

That both comets will be easily seen is mindful of the Book of Revelation:
“Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen (1: 7).” Yes, it is best that men and women turn to God now with full heart and soul.  After all, these two comets may indeed be more than allegories!
