The World on the Turtle’s Back

An Iroquois myth that I have chosen to embellish!

In the beginning there was no world, no land, no creatures of the kind that are around us now, and there were no men. But there was a great ocean which occupied space as far as anyone could see. Above the ocean was a great void of air. And in the air there lived birds of the sea: in the ocean lived the fish and the creatures of the deep. Far above this unpeopled world, there was a Sky World. Here lived gods who were like people- like Iroquois.

In the Sky World there was a man who had a wife, and the wife was expecting a child.  The woman became hungry for all kinds of strange delicacies, as women do when they are with child.  She kept her husband busy almost to distraction finding delicious things for her to eat.  In the middle of the Sky World there grew a Great Tree which was not like any of the trees that we know.  It was tremendous; it had grown there forever. It had enormous roots that spread out from the floor of the Sky World. And on its branches there were many different kinds of leaves and different kinds of fruits and flowers. The tree was not supposed to be marked or mutilated by any beings who dwelt in the Sky World. It was a sacred tree that stood at the center of the universe.

The woman decided that she wanted some bark from one of the roots of the Great Tree- perhaps as food or as a medicine, we don’t know. She told her husband this. He did not like the idea. He knew it was wrong. But she insisted, and he gave in. So he dug a hole among roots of this great sky tree, and he bared some of its roots. But the floor of the Sky World wasn’t very thick, and he broke a hole though it. He was terrified, for he had never expected to find empty space underneath the world.

But his wife was filled with curiosity. He wouldn’t get any of the roots for her, so she set out to do it herself. She bent over and she looked down, and she saw the ocean far below. She leaned down and struck her head though the hole and looked all around. No one knows just what happened next. Some say she slipped. Some say that her husband, fed up with all the demands she had made on him, pushed her.

So she fell through the hole. As she fell, she frantically grabbed at its edges, but her hands slipped. However, between her fingers there clung bits of things that were growing on the floor of the Sky World and bits of the root tips of the Great Tree. And so she began to fall toward the great ocean far below.

The birds of the sea saw the woman falling, and they immediately consulted with each other as to what they could do to help her. Flying wingtip to wingtip, they made a great feathery raft in the sky to support her, and thus they broke her fall. But of course it was not possible for them to carry the woman very long. Some of the other birds of the sky flew down to the surface of the ocean and called up to the ocean creatures to see what they could do to help. The great sea turtle agreed to receive her on his back. The birds placed her gently on the shell of the turtle, and now the turtle floated about on the huge ocean with the woman safely on his back.

The beings in the Sky World paid no attention to this. They knew what was happening, but they chose to ignore it.

When the woman recovered from her shock and terror, she looked around her. All that she could see were the birds and the sea creatures and the sky and the ocean.

And the woman said to herself that she would die. But the creatures of the sea came to her and said they would try to help her and asked her what they could do. She told them that if they could find some soil, she could plant the roots stuck between her fingers, and from them plants would grow. The sea animals said perhaps there was dirt at the bottom of the ocean, but no one had ever been down there so they could not be sure.

If there was dirt at the bottom of the ocean, it was far, far below the surface in the cold deeps. But the animals said they would try to get some. One by one the diving bird and animals tried and failed. They went to their limits of endurance, but they could not get to the bottom of the ocean. Finally, the muskrat said he would try. He dived and disappeared. all the creatures waited, holding their breath, but he did not return. After a long time, his little body floated to the surface of the ocean, a tiny crumb of earth clutched in his paw. He seemed to be dead. They pulled him up on the turtle’s back and they sang and prayed over him and breathed air into his mouth, and finally, he stirred. Thus it was the muskrat, Earth-Diver, who brought from the bottom of the ocean the soil from which the earth was to grow.

muskrat

The woman took the tiny clod of dirt and laced it in the middle of the great sea turtle’s back. Then the woman began to walk in a circle around it, moving in the direction that the sun goes. The earth began to grow. When the earth was big enough, she planted roots she had clutched between her fingers when she fell from the Sky World. Thus the plants grew on the earth.

To keep the earth growing, the woman walked as the sun goes, moving in the direction that the people still move in dance rituals. She gathered roots and plants to eat and built herself a little hut. After a while, the woman’s time came, and she was delivered a daughter. The woman and her daughter kept walking in a circle around the earth, so that the earth and plants would continue to grow. They lived on the plants and roots they gathered. The girl grew up with her mother, forever cut off from the Sky World above, knowing only the birds and the creatures of the sea, seeing no other beings like herself. One day, when the girl had grown to womanhood, a man appeared. No one knows for sure who this man was. He had something to do with the gods above. Perhaps he was the West Wind. As the girl looked at him, she was filled with terror, and amazement, and warmth, and she fainted dead away. As she lay on the ground, the man reached into his quiver, and he took out two arrows, one sharp and one blunt, and he laid them across the body of the girl, and quietly went away.

When the girl awoke from her faint, she and her mother continued to walk around the earth. After a while, they knew that the girl was to bear a child. They did not know it, but she was to bear twins.

Within the girl’s body, the twins began to argue and quarrel with one another. There could be no peace between them. As the time approached for them to be born, the twins fougt about their birth. The right-handed twin wanted to be born in the normal way, as all children are born. But the left-handed twin said no. He said he saw light in another direction, and said he would be born that way. The right-handed twin beseeched him not to, saying that he would kill their dear mother. But the left-handed twin was stubborn. He went in the direction where he saw the light. But he could not be born through his mother’s mouth or her nose. He was born through her armpit, and killed her. And meanwhile, the right-handed twin was born in the normal way, as all children are born.

pregnant

The twins met in the world outside, and the right-handed twin accused his brother of murdering their mother. But the grandmother told them to stop their quarrelling. They buried their mother. And from her grave grew the plants which the people still use. From her head grew the corn, the beans, and the squash “our supporters, the three sisters”. And from her heart grew the tobacco, which the people still use in ceremonies and by whose upward floating smoke they send thanks. The women call her “our mother”, and they dance and sing in the rituals so that the corn, the beans, the squash may grow to feed the people.

But the conflict of the twins did not end at the grave of their mother. And, strangely enough, the grandmother favored the left-handed twin.

The right-handed twin was angry, and he grew more angry as he thought how his brother had killed their mother. The right-handed twin was the one who did everything just as he should. He said what he meant, and he meant what he said. He always told the truth, and he always tried to accomplish what seemed to be right and reasonable. The left-handed twin never said what he meant or meant what he said. He always lied, and he always did everything backward. You could never tell what he was trying to do because he always made it look as if he were doing the opposite. He was the devious one.

These two brothers, as they grew up, represented two ways of the world which are in all the people. The Indians did not call these right and wrong. They called them the straight mind and the crooked mind, the upright man and the devious man, the right and the left.

The twins had creative powers. They took clay and modeled it into animals, and they gave these animals life. And in this they contended one another. The right-handed twin made the deer and the left-handed twin made the mountain lion which kills the deer. But the right-handed twin knew there were more deer than mountian lions. And he made more animals. He made the ground squirrel. The left-handed twin saw that the mountain lion could not get to the ground squirrel, who digs a hole so he made the weasel. And although the weasel can go straight into the ground squirrel’s hole and kill him, there are lots of ground squirrels and not so many weasels. Next the right-handed twin decided he would make an animal that the weasel could kill, so he made the porcupine. But the left-handed twin made the bear, who flips the porcupine over on his back and tears out his belly.

And the right-handed twin made berries and fruits of other kinds for his creatures to live on. The left-handed twin made briars and poison ivy, and the poisonous plants like baneberry and the dogberry, and the suicide root with which people kill themselves when they go out of their minds. And the left-handed twin made medicines, for good and evil, for doctoring and for witchcraft.

And finally, the right-handed twin made man. The people do not know just how much the left-handed twin had to do with making man. Man was made of clay, like pottery, and baked in the fire…

The world the twins made was a balanced and orderly world, and this was good. The plant-eating animals created by the right-handed twin would eat up all the vegetation if their number was not kept down by the meat-eating animals which the left-handed twin created. But if these carnivorous animals ate too many other animals, then they would starve, for they would run out of meat. So the right-handed and the left-handed twins built balance into the world.

As the twins became full-grown men, they still contested with one another. No one had won, and no one had lost. And they knew the conflict was becoming sharper and sharper and one of them would have to vanquish the other.

And so they came to the duel. They started with gambling. They took a wooden bowl, and in it they put wild plum pits. One side of the pits was burned black, and by tossing the pits in the bowl, and betting on how these would fall, they gambled against one another, as the people still do in the New Year’s rites. All through the morning they gambled at this game, and all through the afternoon, and the sun went down. And when the sun went down, the game was done, and neither one had own.

So they went onto battle one another at lacrosse game. And they contested all day, and the sun went down, and the game was done. And neither had won.

And now they battled with clubs, and they fought all day, and the sun went down, and the fight was done. But neither had won.

And they went from one duel to another to see which one would succumb. Each one knew in his deepest mind that there was something, somewhere, that would vanquish the other. But what was it? Where to find it?

twins

Each knew somewhere in his mind what it was that was his own weak point. They talked about this as they contested in these duels, day after day, and somehow the deep mind of each entered into the other. And the deep mind of the right-handed twin lied to his brother, and the deep mind of the left-handed twin told the truth.
On the last day of the dual, as they stood, they at last knew how the right-handed twin was to kill his brother. Each selected his weapon. The left-handed twin chose a mere stick that would do him no good. But the right-handed twin picked out a deer antler, and with one touch he destroyed his brother. And the left-handed twin died, but he died and he didn’t die. The right-handed twin picked up his body and cast it off the edge of the earth. And some place below the world, in the land of the eternal abyss, the left-handed twin remained for some time.

Having killed his brother, the right-handed twin returned to his grandmother. And she met him in anger. She threw food out of the cabin onto the ground, and she said theat he was a murderer, for he had killed his brother. He grew angry, and told her she had always helped his brother, who had killed their mother. In anger, he grabbed her by the throat and cut her head off. Her body he threw into the ocean, and her head into the sky. There “Our Grandmother, the Moon” still keeps watch at night over the realm of her favourite grandson.

The right-handed twin has many names. One of them is Sapling. It means smooth, young, green, fresh and innocent, straightforward, straight-growing, soft and pliable, teachable and trainable. These are the ways of describing him.

Our young Sapling was quite sorry at the state of affairs and he wept. He wept so long and so hard that his tears began to flood the earth and all the wonderful creatures, animals and fruits that his grandmother, his mother, his twin brother and himself had brought to creative fruition. The West Wind saw this from the Sky World and took pity on him, his son.

In the world up above, it was a very special time, a sacred time that can only be counted every 5,125 turns of the earth around the sun. And when this time occurred, the Tree of Life bore an ambrosia fruit that everyone in the Sky World craved, therefore, it was permitted during these holy periods to eat of the fruit of the Tree of Life. The merrymaking and general mayhem of creative power during these heightened occasions is what creates new worlds, new life forms and eternal galaxies. Thus the West Wind ate of the fruit, and created the portal that opened from the Sky World to the Earth below and he blew into the portal such a forceful breath that a spinning rainbow vortex swirled from one world to the other and picked up the right-handed twin and lifted him right up into the Sky World.

portal 21

The right-handed twin was in shock, confusion and a coma-like state for many days until the smoke of the tobacco reached him from the humans who were grieving his abscence. And then he wept again to realize his Fate. Although he was quite happy to be back in the Land of All Origins, he was worried and fretful about his greatest creation, the humans. He knew that without his guidance and protection they could easily be lost to the folly of his left-handed twins’ ways. So he beseeched the Sky Walkers to allow him to send the humans on the Earth below some helping aid.

The right-handed twin, who became known as He Who Holds up the Skies, Master of Life, and Great Creator, ate of the fruit of the Tree of Life and spit the seeds down to the Earth so that in this way the earth dwellers could also come to know of this sacred tree and its magical creative powers. Everywhere these seeds landed were considered power places which offered higher vibrations akin to the Sky World and those sensitive to the energies could receive guidance and knowledge from dwelling in such spaces.

The Master of Life, our right-handed twin, also sang a song which travelled from his world to the Earth by way of the West Wind and those who had ears to hear this melody became the shamans, the healers, the medicine men and women who through their own power songs could open up the portals between the worlds ensuring otherworld communication.

The West Wind reminded the right-handed twin: as above, so below. Thus when the West Wind opened the portal from the Sky World to the earth so was a portal opened from the Earth to the Underworld so that the left-handed twin could travel from the abyss to his long awaited home as well. He lives in a place that knows the world of men well, and he finds contentment in it. He hears the sound of warfare, torture and injustices and he finds them good.

The left-handed twin also has many names. One of them is Flint. He is called the devious one, the one covered in boils. Old Warty. He is stubborn. He is thought of as being dark in color. His realm is the night, the shadow-lands, despair and the full moon of his grandmother.

left handed

The Tree of Life is in full bloom with her ambrosia fruit. It is a 5,125 year moment. The shamans are singing. The portals are open. You may ascend or you may descend depending on your chosen path.

Our world, the Earth swings back and forth from one twins’ stronghold to the next… but always, always a balance is found… and in all ways, it is in good order. The shadow may not live without the light. The right may not exist with the left. The healthy, straight mind cannot manuever without the crooked minds plots. And in each of us, the other lives. So it was. So it is. Forever and ever. In the spiral of life, all is well on the Tree of Life. The END xo

“The Heavens Declare the Glory of God” – New

 

As we watch the increasingly-ominous events that are transpiring on earth as we progress deeper into the latter days, it is easy to get anxious and absorbed in all of the ills that are in our current world. I thought that at this time it would be good for all of us to focus on the fathomless and awesome greatness of God. Our Creator is so vastly above all the petty nonsense that mankind is pursuing in the midst of our national and personal sins and agendas.

Human empires of the past that seemed so permanent and powerful in their time have all crumbled into the sands of time. All previous generations of men and women, whether they were pampered and powerful royalty or anguished serfs and slaves, have all died and their bodies returned to the same dust. All the nations of our modern world will eventually return to the dust as well.

A friend sent me a short video clip that all of us should watch periodically as a “reality check” which depicts very well a truth expressed in Psalm 19:1. Most Christians are familiar with the scripture in Psalm 19:1 which states: “The heavens declare the glory of God…” We are all so enmeshed in our day-to-day struggles and concerns we rarely consider the paramount reality expressed in Psalm 19:1. The video clip helps all of us obtain at least a glimmer into the sheer awesomeness and incomprehensible power and sovereignty of the Creator Being called “God” in the English Bibles. I suggest watching it now and then returning to read the rest of this post.

The video clip depicts what the NASA Hubble Telescope saw in a supposedly “empty” region of space. What it saw was a far-distant assemblage of countless galaxies too distant and dim to be seen with the naked eye. There were so many galaxies with each one containing numberless millions of stars (and very likely solar systems of planets orbiting each star). The video clip includes a novel and impressive feature. It does a 3-D fly-by of what it would be like to travel at warp speed past the galaxies and have them pass by you as you flew to the outermost galaxy. I was awed by the experience, especially considering some of the scripture’s references to what the Universe’s vastness teaches us about its Creator. These galaxies in just one tiny spot of our night sky contain numberless billions of stars, yet Psalm 147:4 says of God: “He tells [counts] the number of the stars; he calls them all by their names.” My mind asks: How would it be possible to even come up with names for each of the mega-trillions of stars that exist in all the galaxies “out there?” Thankfully, God reassures us sinning and messed up human beings in our fallen world that “as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.” This video clip makes the point that the heavens and all their stars are infinitely high over the earth. I think all of us need to meditate on the infinity of God’s mercy toward us when we feel too sinful or damaged or afflicted for God to notice us or hear our prayers. If we have reverent awe toward him, he can hear our prayers. The video clip graphically makes the point that looking at the night sky of the physical Universe helps us understand how infinite a Being the Creator God really is.

The ancient civilizations had an big advantage that we don’t have. They lacked electricity so nighttime was very, very dark, indeed. The glory of the night sky must have been breathtaking to them. Our modern cities have such high ambient levels of light that we can barely see a few of the brighter starts in almost all our cities. I grew up in a rural area where the Milky Way could be seen when I was a boy. I haven’t seen the Milky Way in decades due to the ambient light levels that now illuminate our nights. I want to drive out to the countryside and see the Milky Way again before I die. Its a doable thing on my “bucket list.”

I anticipate the video clip will bring up the “young earth – old earth” debate in the minds of some viewers, so I’ll address that issue with a few comments. My full examination of this subject can be read in my article, Is the Earth 6000 Years Old? [Subtitle: "When Lucifer Ruled the earth."]. I believe both the biblical and scientific evidence confirm that our earth and the physical Universe could be billions of years old. The Bible offers no date for the creation of the Universe or our earth—it simply indicates it is indefinitely old. Contrary to what some Christians think, Genesis 1 does not state that the earth or the Universe is 6000 years old. It records that mankind and the modern air-breathing species now on earth were created by an Elohim Creator Being approximately 6,000 years ago. However, a careful reading of Genesis 1:1-3 shows that the earth and its oceans were already in existence before God ever began to create anything in Creation Week. What Genesis 1:1-2 reveal is that the earth experienced a global extinction level event in its ancient past and its surface was a flooded, darkened, lifeless orb drifting through space until God created life anew on its surface. Scientific evidence has proven that the earth has experienced several extinction-level or near-extinction-level events in its ancient past, and the Bible specifically mentions two of them. The angelic civilization and the dinosaur world that formerly existed on this earth long before the creation of mankind is discussed in my aforementioned article. That article reconciles the perceived differences between scientific fact and biblical narratives about our earth and the Universe. I urge you to read it is you have not done so already.

The video clip below cites the “red-shift” light patterns of the galaxies as revealing which ones are closer to and which ones are furthest from the earth. Assuming the speed of light is a constant throughout the Universe, the light we are receiving from these unimaginably-distant galaxies left their stars billions of years ago. So consider this very humbling thought: Those galaxies are so distant that they first appeared to us as a single spot of light. Yet they are so far away that the light from one edge of those galaxies has not yet reached the other end of that galaxy during the entire 6000 years of mankind’s existence on the earth. The second link offers more scientific commentary on the “Hubble Ultra Deep Field” photographs of the distant galaxies viewed in the first link.

Concerning the “old earth – young earth” debate among Christians, Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28 give insights into the creation of a great “covering cherub” angel originally called Lucifer of whom God states: “You were perfect in your ways from the days you were created till iniquity was found in you” (Ezekiel 38:15). To those Christians who advocate a “young earth” theory, you must also advocate that an angelic being that God Himself created “perfect” went bad and degenerated into sinfulness within days or a few years if you maintain everything was made just 6000 years ago because Lucifer/Satan was the fallen and sinful tempter who made Adam and Eve fall from grace soon after they were created in Eden. Personally, I think that an angelic being which God made “perfect” took many eons to degrade into a sinful being who rebelled against his Creator. That allows for an earth and Universe which is billions of years old. Please also keep in mind that our concept of “time” does not exist in the spirit realm—Elohim and angelic beings do not exist in a physical realm divided into days, months, years, etc.

I hope this video clip is as inspiring to you as it was to me. When you are overwhelmed with life and its cares, I suggest watching it again. That should help restore our perspective of how great God really is and how little we really are. It is also encouraging to know that this same awesome Creator is so loving and merciful that he can hear our prayers and meet our needs (Psalm 103).

DHS Now Testing Latest Facial Recognition Tracking

 

dhs-facial-recogition

The federal government will soon be scanning for [YOU?] via a new surveillance system that will scan crowds and automatically identify people by their faces up to 300-feet away.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will test its crowd-scanning facial recognition system, known as the Biometric Optical Surveillance System, or BOSS, at a hockey game this weekend (21-SEP-2013) at the 6,000 seat Toyota Center in Kennewick, Washington, where it hopes to achieve at least a 80 to 90-percent success rate.

If you’re planning to attend, should you think twice if you have unpaid parking tickets, etc.?

Are we facing a future when we will be identified by DHS facial recognition tracking systems as we move about in public – attending public gatherings, sporting events, or even rightful protests? While they can already track us by our cell phones, our electronic transactions and communications… they apparently will soon be able to track us even if we shed our electronic signatures…

A 5.2 million dollar contract awarded to Electronic Warfare Associates (EWA) headquartered in Herndon Virginia, a U.S. military contractor, is for a surveillance system that is apparently slated to be used here at home in America.

Some say, while a technology such as this could potentially serve to assist in safeguarding under certain situations, do we trust DHS and the other alphabet agencies to use it only for ‘good’? An increasing police/surveillance state?

Newly disclosed documents obtained under the freedom of information act, detail some of the specifics of the BOSS system as it relates to DHS.

How it works…

In theory, any names entered into the BOSS system from a “watch list” would be matched with a face from the crowd if that person was in the field of view. This raises serious concerns with privacy advocates who question… Who chooses the names? What are the criteria? Where are these systems placed? Is the information saved? For how long? Who has access to it, etc.?

Some believe that agencies like the DHS and NSA would push to have these surveillance systems installed at arenas, shopping malls, and street corners all across America.

But it’s all for your safety and security…
There’s nothing tyrannical about this whatsoever… /sarc

According to DHS, BOSS technology consists of two cameras capable of taking stereoscopic images of a face and a back end remote matching system. Stereoscopic images are two images of the same object, taken at slightly different angles that create an illusion of three-dimensional depth from two-dimensional images.

The cameras transfer the pair of images to the remote matching system by way of fiber optic or wireless technology. The system then processes and stores the two images into a 3-D signature, which is the mathematical representation of the stereo-pair images that the system uses for matching.

Using the BOSS facial recognition algorithms, the signature is matched against a locally stored database using a combination of mathematical and statistical analysis.

-biometricupdate.com
“Homeland Security to test BOSS facial recognition at junior hockey game”

The DHS isn’t exactly looking for terrorists at Saturday’s game in Kennewick, a small city of under 100,000 residents that’s roughly 50 miles from Walla Walla, WA. As surveillance systems are increasingly rolled out in public spaces across America, technology could soon be implemented by small-town police departments to pick people out of crowds who have been accused of essentially anything.

“This technology is always billed as anti-terrorism, but then it drifts into other applications” said Ginger McCall of the Electronic Privacy Information Center. “We need a real conversation about whether and how we want this technology to be used, and now is the time for that debate.”

What say you??

Do those of you who mock Me now…

 

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

My dearly beloved daughter, at last, you offer Me thanks for this very difficult Mission. I  know how much pain it causes you to proclaim the Word of God, because it creates much anger amongst those who believe they are the elite.

My daughter, know that while I grant you favours, you will always walk alone, and you will end up in the wilderness, just like the prophets before you. I will send some to help you, but you will always be isolated.  But I will always keep you company, while the wolves will hunt you down.

Tell those who call themselves My true disciples, priests and sacred servants, amongst you, this.  I will always hear the voices of the little, the weak, the humble and those pure of heart. Even if they are frightened of My Messages, I will always favour those who truly love Me. Who are these I speak of now? I refer to those who have never forgotten what I told them. Carry My Cross, follow Me, but be prepared, for when you declare the Word of God without malice, you will suffer My Pain. No matter how civilized you believe the world to be at this time, you will be hated when you stand up, defiantly, against those who hate Me. When they hate Me, they will crucify you.

I listen to the meek. I bless those who carry out My clear instructions to you, to love one another, no matter how they torment you. Those of you who reject Me, through these Messages, must never, because of your doubts, spread hatred against anyone in My Name.  I, Jesus Christ, tell you now that the devil has come to declare this final assault on all of God’s children. Those of you who refuse to listen to Me , will fall for the charm of his devout servants.

Don’t you know that My Church will be attacked by Satan and that this has been foretold? My enemies will walk amongst you and, yet you do not accept that I would allow this. Know that the Battle of Armageddon comprises of two sides. Those who believe in God and follow the Word of God and the evil one, his army and all those he deceives.  Satan will deceive many in My Church and only those who remain alert, and who watch out for doctrinal errors, will be able to withstand the seduction. The seduction is the most powerful tool used by the deceiver. He deceives by appearing to proclaim the Truth.

I urge those poor souls, those who love Me, and who remain true to My Church on Earth, to listen. You must remain true to My Church and accept discipline, when your superiors remain true to what I gave the world, through My death on the Cross.  The time for choice is close. The abomination has not happened yet, but when you see the errors, which go against My Teachings and My Gift of the Sacraments, walk away. That day is close. Then you must gather and continue to follow the Rules of My Church, as they were laid down before you, by Peter.

Do those of you who mock Me now, because you reject My Messages, really believe that I would divide My Church and ask you to deny My Teachings? Wait until the day, when you are asked to swear allegiance to lies, in the Name of My Holy Church on Earth, before you dismiss My prophet.  Only My Love for you is so strong do I not cast you aside and allow you to be devoured by demons.

Your Jesus

Fires and Floods
Welcome to the Era
Of Flood and Flames

Deadly flash floods inundate 16 states across the US Midwest for a week and counting. Before that the Atlantic coastline states were inundated. One might think that the monsoon has extended its watery reach deep into the temperate zones of America this summer—and perhaps it “has”. Scientists have been forecasting such an expansion of tropical belts of climate for decades that is a direct consequence of human pollution warming the air you breath so that it contains more water moisture—the fuel of our ever more violent weather.

It is not an “act of God”. It is an act of “you”. Every time you get into your internal combustion engine car, you are doing your bit to create an “infernal” combustion of your civilization through human-induced climate change.

The floods are only beginning.

Queensland floods!

Have you noticed the the sudden uptick of the “new abnormal” news reports about regular monsoon showers flooding out large tracts of Pakistan in 2010 and 2011, then putting a third of Thailand under water, including Bangkok for two months in 2012? Australian readers, do you remember Cyclone Yashu, inundating Queensland? And Europeans, did you notice the flooding on the Danube, then the Rhine this year of 2013, and Tornado Alley landlubbers, now you weather the storms of the deluges this week visiting Oklahoma City after a month in May wherein “TWO” EF05 tornadoes cut gashes of devastation through your city suburbs. From December of 2011 to December of 2012, do any of you outside of the Philippines remember the two-Decembers punch of Bopha 2012 and a severe tropical storm the year before that drowned thousands in flood swollen landslides across Mindanao?

My “Oracle” anticipated this age of floods and it will last at least through 2026. Here is why:

The planet Neptune, God of Oceans, returns home to Pisces in 2012. It will swim in its ocean sign for nearly 13 years. In the previous chapter, we saw what great flooding disasters marked its preview when it dipped for a time into Pisces before a retrograde back into Aquarius.

Bangkok, Thailand.

Neptune astro charted a direct course for Pisces when I began writing this book in November 2011. The god of deluge will return to Pisces for its long transit on 5 February 2012. It will be in Pisces until the last day of March in far off 2025, then dip back again for a final refreshment in October-November of that year before embarking on a long transit in Aries in January 2026. After bringing in a meteorological era of unprecedented global rains, flooding, tsunamis, rising ocean levels between 2012-2026, Neptune entering Aries will have added to the storms on continental coastlines a Sun-scorched era of deadly central continental droughts. By that time, Neptune will have stolen greedily the water vapors of ice sheets and glaciers of the world. He will have removed the “eternal ice” of the Himalayas.

Predictions for 2012: Chapter 6
Nature’s War on Humanity:
Year Three (2012)—Upheaval and Flood

Southern California, you are getting a pre-decadenal “taste” of flames licking our mountainside in sudden, violent eruptions of fires to come after Neptune enters Aries that will be far larger and light fire footed than the current Silver Wildfire  The world will see its heartlands desiccating even though the oceans begin to rise “after” Neptune had done with us in Pisces.

The first signs of global warming portray a strange paradox. Changing weather patterns drench the oceanside lands with more flooding rains and visitations by stronger seas and storms. Go inland to the heart of Earth’s continents and watch intensifying floods replaced by wide spreading drought. The continental interiors will continue drying just as the edges flood. So goes the Greenhouse Effect generating more moisture in the atmosphere over the seacoasts while the hotter climate steadily sucks moisture through increased evaporation out of interior lands…

Inner-continental droughts are spreading with greater speed since 2009. Note the lingering drought conditions across wheat fields of Europe, Russia and Siberia in 2010 and the central agricultural producing states of America in 2011-2012, especially in Texas, Oklahoma and up through Kansas, Nebraska and Illinois—cooking field, fish and stream. US papers in 2012 displayed many fish floating belly up in bathtub hot American rivers and lakes. In Texas, the lakes were literally being boiled away by triple-digit heat. The shriveled fish carcasses lying on the cracked mud “stove” of dry lake beds fired by the Sun, appear half-cooked in their last death throe distress from the Sun’s fire in the sky. Heavy melts and flooding rains in the spring of 2013 give the drought pause in the Plains States. This may only be a brief, one-year respite; or worse, an equally vexing drought-to-flood pattern of extremes granting farmers no relief from several seasons of burning Sun punctuated by a random season of flooding fields.

Oracolo sull’Egitto

 

L'Egitto e gli ultimi giorni

“Io inciterò Egiziani contro Egiziani, combatteranno il fratello contro il fratello … Io darò l’Egitto in mano di un signore duro, un re crudele dominerà su di lui”, dice il Signore, Dio degli eserciti.

(Isaia 19:2, 4)

Le Scritture parlano con chiarezza dell’oracolo, o profezia, contro l’Egitto, che viene inserito nel medesimo contesto dell’oracolo contro Damasco che troviamo in Isaia 17: “Ecco, Damasco è tolta dal numero delle città e non sarà più che un ammasso di rovine” (Isaia 17:1).

Posta tra queste due profezie maggiori, concernenti la Siria e l’Egitto (Isaia 17 e 19), troviamo la strana profezia riguardante “il paese dalle ali strepitanti, oltre i fiumi dell’Etiopia, che invia messaggeri per mare … verso la nazione dall’alta statura e dalla pelle lucida [cioè rasata], verso il popolo temuto fin nelle regioni lontane, nazione potente che calpesta tutto, il cui paese è solcato da fiumi” (Isaia 18:1-2). Abbiamo in precedenza discusso dell’identità di questo “popolo temuto fin nelle regioni lontane” e, in questa sede, sarà sufficiente ribadire che si tratta nient’altro che degli Stati Uniti d’America, che saranno come sempre decisi ad intervenire ed inserirsi, tramite i loro ambasciatori, all’interno di questi oracoli contro Siria ed Egitto, nel vano e sciocco tentativo di orchestrare un “accordo di pace” e giocare così un ruolo di intermediario di potere. Tuttavia, a dispetto delle sue discutibili intromissioni, questa grande nazione costituirà uno strumento nelle mani del Signore e un giorno porterà offerte a Dio: “In quel tempo offerte saranno portate al Signore degli eserciti … al luogo dov’è il nome del Signore degli eserciti, sul monte Sion” (Isaia 18:7). Ma ciò avverrà durante il Regno millenario, mentre nell’epoca corrente l’intento dell’America sarà ben più speculativo, con i suoi vuoti tentativi di porre rimedio al caos che fin da ora sta avendo luogo in Siria ed Egitto.

Consideriamo ora più da vicino quello che avviene nella scia dell’oracolo contro Damasco – profezia che ci anticipa quella che probabilmente sarà la più raccapricciante delle guerre mai avvenute in Medio Oriente – ossia l’oracolo contro l’Egitto:

Oracolo sull’Egitto.

Ecco, il Signore cavalca una nuvola leggera ed entra in Egitto; gli idoli d’Egitto tremano davanti a lui e all’Egitto si scioglie il cuore nel petto.

“Io inciterò Egiziani contro Egiziani, combatteranno il fratello contro il fratello, il vicino contro il vicino, città contro città, regno contro regno.”

(Isaia 19:1-2)

Per prima cosa sfatiamo nettamente la nozione, tristemente diffusa, che queste profezie riportate in Isaia 17, 18 e 19, siano meri annunci metaforici lanciati da un profeta arrabbiato e pieno di pregiudizi nazionalisti. No, Isaia si trova ad essere trasportato in spirito alla fine dei tempi, in modo da essere testimone del destino di questi regni e di questi popoli che, negli ultimi giorni, avranno rapporti molto stretti con Israele. I passi che vanno da Isaia 13 a 24 rappresentano dei giudizi molto precisi sopra queste nazioni, che avranno compimento effettivo alla fine dei tempi. Ad esempio, la profezia su Babilonia scritta in Isaia 13 si è compiuta solo in parte, ma non ancora del tutto:

Ecco, il giorno del Signore giunge: giorno crudele, d’indignazione e d’ira furente, che farà della terra un deserto e ne distruggerà i peccatori. Poiché le stelle e le costellazioni del cielo non faranno più brillare la loro luce; il sole si oscurerà mentre sorge, la luna non farà più risplendere il suo chiarore. Io punirò il mondo per la sua malvagità e gli empi per la loro iniquità; farò cessare l’alterigia dei superbi e abbatterò l’arroganza dei tiranni. Renderò gli uomini più rari dell’oro fino, più rari dell’oro di Ofir. Perciò farò tremare i cieli, e la terra sarà scossa dal suo luogo per l’indignazione del Signore degli eserciti, nel giorno della sua ira furente.

(Isaia 13:9-13)

La terminologia usata da Isaia indica il vero “giorno del Signore”, che giungerà alla fine di quest’era e che si avvicina rapidamente. Perciò quando il profeta, al capitolo 14, parla della cacciata di Satana/Lucifero dal Paradiso, la sua descrizione costituisce una reminiscenza della coda del Dragone che trascina con sé un terzo delle stelle del cielo e le scaglia sulla terra, menzionata in Apocalisse 12:

Come mai sei caduto dal cielo, astro mattutino, figlio dell’aurora? Come mai sei atterrato, tu che calpestavi le nazioni? Tu dicevi in cuor tuo: “Io salirò in cielo, innalzerò il mio trono al di sopra delle stelle di Dio; mi siederò sul monte dell’assemblea, nella parte estrema del settentrione; salirò sulle sommità delle nubi, sarò simile all’Altissimo.” Invece ti hanno fatto discendere nel soggiorno dei morti, nelle profondità della fossa! … Tutti i re delle nazioni, tutti quanti riposano gloriosi, ciascuno nella propria casa; ma tu sei stato gettato lontano dalla tua tomba come un rampollo abominevole coperto di uccisi trafitti con la spada, calati sotto i sassi della fossa, come un cadavere calpestato … a causa della iniquità dei loro padri! Che non si rialzino più a conquistare la terra, a riempire il mondo di città!

(Isaia 14:12-21)

Apparve ancora un altro segno nel cielo: ed ecco un gran Dragone rosso, che aveva sette teste e dieci corna e sulle teste sette diademi. La sua coda trascinava la terza parte delle stelle del cielo e le scagliò sulla terra.

E ci fu una battaglia nel cielo: Michele e i suoi angeli combatterono contro il Dragone. Il Dragone e i suoi angeli combatterono, ma non vinsero, e per loro non ci fu più posto nel cielo. Il gran Dragone, il serpente antico, che è chiamato Diavolo e Satana, il seduttore di tutto il mondo, fu gettato giù; fu gettato sulla terra, e con lui furono gettati anche i suoi angeli … Perciò rallegratevi, o cieli, e voi che abitate in essi! Guai a voi, o terra, o mare! Perché il Diavolo è sceso verso di voi con gran furore, sapendo di aver poco tempo.

(Apocalisse 12:3-4, 7-9, 12)

E subito dopo aver descritto la cacciata di Lucifero dai cieli e la fine delle sue incessanti accuse che, da Adamo, continuano fino a metà della settantesima settimana di Daniele, Isaia dichiara la distruzione finale di Babilonia:

“Io sorgerò contro di loro”, dice il Signore degli eserciti; “sterminerò di Babilonia il nome, i superstiti, la razza e la discendenza”, dice il Signore.

(Isaia 14:22)

Ma l’ira del Signore contro Babilonia viene già descritta nel capitolo precedente (Isaia 13), poiché Egli nutre contro la grande città una furia immensa, essendo essa “diventata ricettacolo di demoni, covo di ogni spirito immondo, rifugio di ogni uccello impuro e abominevole. Perché tutte le nazioni hanno bevuto del vino della sua prostituzione furente, e i re della terra hanno fornicato con lei, e i mercanti della terra si sono arricchiti con gli eccessi del suo lusso … ubriaca del sangue dei santi e del sangue dei martiri di Gesù” (Isaia 18:2-3; 17:6).

Questo è il preciso contesto che ci interessa: Satana che viene gettato fuori dal Paradiso e sa di avere poco tempo per infliggere la sua furia sulla terra, che è già in piena crisi sotto l’impronta dell’Anticristo, durante la seconda metà della settantesima settimana di Daniele. E questa seconda metà sarà ben peggiore della prima, poiché il Diavolo ora è assai più adirato, così come lo fu al momento della crocifissione e dall’ascensione di Gesù.

Alla fine dei tempi, Siria ed Egitto rappresentano due terribili nemici che circondano Israele. E l’Egitto, pur avendo conosciuto l’Onnipotente Dio d’Israele nei tempi passati, come un cane che torna al suo vomito, calerà con le sue orde su Israele un’altra volta, cercando di ripetere ciò che avvenne al tempo di Mosè e Faraone. Anche ora l’Egitto mobiliterà, come fece a quel tempo, i suoi maghi e stregoni per incutere timore, ma invano:

Lo spirito che anima l’Egitto svanirà, io renderò vani i suoi disegni; quelli consulteranno gli idoli, gli incantatori, gli evocatori di spiriti e gli indovini.

(Isaia 19:3)

È come se, in occasione di questa nuova e disperata defezione dell’Egitto, le forze demoniache si siano levate in massa per sfruttare appieno l’ultima e più estrema risorsa del paese, con la mediazione del nemico: la magia e la stregoneria.

magia egizia

La magia, o “scienza dell’occulto” è, in senso ampio, il tentativo di influenzare le persone e gli eventi ricorrendo a poteri soprannaturali. La parola “magia” deriva da Magi, una casta di sacerdoti della Media (antica provincia persiana) la cui funzione è stata da sempre associata all’impiego di questo mezzo. Costoro ritenevano di essere mediatori tra dèi e uomini, praticavano sacrifici, supervisionavano la gestione dei defunti, interpretavano sogni, segni e fenomeni celesti, e predicevano il futuro. Il termine “magia” entrò nel mondo greco, e poi in quello romano, tramite la Persia. Nel tempo acquisì un’accezione sempre più negativa, portata ad un grado di negatività ancora più alto dalla diffusione del termine “stregoneria”.

Tradizionalmente, vengono distinti due “tipi” di magia, quella “bianca” e quella “nera”. La prima comprende tutte le pratiche che si basano sull’evocazione del Diavolo o delle forze demoniache, e presuppone che le forze del male si lascino manipolare dagli uomini. La magia “bianca”, d’altro canto, presuppone l’esistenza di cosiddette “forze del bene”, tramite le quali si possono realizzare intenti benevoli e spezzare incantesimi di magia nera. L’antropologo James Frazer scrive che la magia è “una specie di logica selvaggia, un ragionamento elementare basato su somiglianze, contrasti e contiguità” (Il ramo d’oro I, 61). Per questo, la magia viene spesso paragonata alle procedure sistematiche della scienza.

In Egitto, la magia è sempre stata un elemento presente e prominente. Veniva insegnata nelle scuole templari (la “Casa della Vita”) e vi erano sacerdozi espressamente votati a tale arte dell’incanto e della divinazione, sotto il patrocinio delle divinità locali. La pratica magica era estesa anche ai defunti, che necessitavano di un equipaggiamento soprannaturale particolare per essere preservati nella vita successiva. Il testo sapienziale intitolato L’insegnamento per Merikara, faraone della X dinastia, risalente all’incirca al 2150 a.C., mostra come nell’antico Egitto la magia e la medicina fossero strettamente collegate. L’interpretazione dei sogni veniva considerata un’arte molto sofisticata e i maghi egizi erano rinomati in tale campo, come pure nell’esecuzione di prodigi, tanto che già nel terzo millennio a.C. troviamo prove di tali fenomeni, registrati in testi come quello de I racconti del papiro Westcar, redatto nell’epoca della XVI dinastia.

Nella mitologia egizia, la magia veniva personificata in una divinità chiamata Heka, nome che equivale proprio a “magia”. Molte religioni antiche, come quella egizia, ritenevano che la creazione fosse animata e si fosse formata attraverso una forza motrice, cioè la magia stessa. Tale forza, dunque, era ben più antica, e perciò più potente, di tutti gli déi, e rappresentava anche il mezzo per acquisire la conoscenza del mondo circostante e avere potere su di esso. Dèi, demoni e defunti, potevano essere evocati, persuasi o anche minacciati, in modo che fornissero il loro aiuto per far sì che le persone potessero realizzare i loro desideri.

Il pensiero magico egizio ha continuato nel tempo ad influenzare l’Europa. Thot, dio della saggezza e della sapienza, fu assimilato al greco Ermete Trismegisto, che gli ermetici ritenevano fosse fondatore della loro filosofia e autore della raccolta di 42 libri di magia nota come Corpus Hermeticum. Anche il culto della dea egizia Iside si diffuse in tutto il mondo romano. Di essa, la stele di Metternich (IV sec. a.C.) riporta una precisa descrizione: “Io sono Iside, la grande dea, la signora della magia, potente negli incantesimi.”

Nell’acquisire poteri magici, invocare potenze sovrannaturali, praticare incantesimi e prodigi, i fautori di tali pratiche occulte hanno continuato ad esistere nei secoli, attendendo il “momento magico” in cui l’Egitto risalirà dall’abisso mettendo in mostra i suoi stregoni ed incantatori. E quel giorno non è lontano.

Predictions for 2013 and Predictions for 2014 from Hogue …

 

The British Bull Dog on ice in a historic, record breaking UK heat wave.

DATELINE 06 August

Thunderstorms in Alaska
Britain Basting Heat Waves

I welcome my readers sending me reports from all over the world about the weird, extreme and warming global weather.

As the song goes, “I love Paris in summer, when it sizzles…” So reports my friend Satgyan in Paris where they were sweltering under 90-degree weather for much of July. Cool and misty Britain became hot and steamy in the latter days of July as well, breaking temperatures held for over a half-century. Then there was Shanghai, China, logging in the hottest summer temperatures in 140 years!

Way up in the high northern climes sits Grant next to his laptop sending me this Facebook message a week ago last Monday:

I’ve read your blog about Alaska’s 90-degree hot weather. [Click on Alaska heat wave] Up here is very hot recently. Also down in South Central AK where I’m at had our first ever thunder and lighting storm. [It] lasted for nearly 4 hours… Now from the old folks who lived down here longer, have never seen such an impact.

Grant went on to say that “old folks”, long-time residents of the 49th US state “have never seen such [a climate changing] impact.” I would add that the changes in climate being most dramatic in the Arctic and Antarctic, Northern and Southern Hemispheres follows what climate scientists have consistently forecast and documented. There is no wiggle room here, unless you are one of those nearly extinct specimens of climate science that take fossil fuel corporate money to peep contrarian propaganda that Climate Change is not real.

Heat wave in Paris: "I love Paris in the globally warmed summer when it sizziles?"

That also goes for the rare and dwindling breed I call “Sun Huggers”. They cry loudest that the Sun made the Earth’s climate heat up only during increased cycles of solar activity, such as right now, but not a “Carrington Event” of solar storming alarm is rung when violent and globally warming weather rages equally hard during quiet “solar minimum” years. That is what happened when Hurricane Katrina flattened the Mississippi coast and flooded New Orleans in one of the most active hurricane seasons in history in 2005.

Where there’s thunderstorms in Alaska there are fires.

Grant passed along some news published at the end of July by the Anchorage Daily News (click on boreal forest fires for the full article). These are the largest forests on Planet Earth that circle the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of great and sprawling landmasses of Alaska, Canada and stretch across 11 time zones of European and Siberian Russia. In short, a new scientific study of the Yukon Flats region indicate that these forests are more beleaguered and set on fire than the Amazon Rain forests of South America. The article reports that they are “burning at a rate considered historically unprecedented.”

Your network Lame-stream-brained news outlets won’t tell you about such stories because the fossil fuel interests that control your network “nut-Worked” news do not want to frighten you little froggies sitting in the slowly warming pot of water that has become your climate. They want you to obsess about when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will have their baby, what sex will it be, what’s its name, etc., just when large tracts of boreal forests are burning and altering your climate. Don’t upset the frogs in their “fog”. Otherwise the corporately approved propaganda that climate change is only a “new normal” might actually alarm you pollywoggish brained, boob-tube, royal baby watching folk that this world is suffering through a worsening “New Abnormal” human induced climate shift. The water’s getting hotter and if you keep adapting to it, like that frog, you will one day expire and become frog-legged food for the Moon.

G.I. Gurdjieff (1866-1949), a prophet of remembering the "self" in the harmonious development of man without quotation marks.

“Food for the Moon” is a term used by the 20th-century mystic George Gurdjieff to describe a kind of “psychic” food chain that sees a lower evolved world feast on the unconscious acts of a slightly more advanced world. Thus the Moon, which is dead, eats the unconsciousness of humanity on Earth in its planetary, food-chained evolution. Let us look beyond what I grant all disciples of Gurdjieff reading this will rightly tell is a way-too simplistic definition. What you, my fellow frogs in the pot of slowly boiling climate change, need to know is that your collective and individual unconscious acts “act” as part of a food chain of psychic evolution. Moreover, your current civilization if it does not wake up will become a meal devoured by the forces of the collective unconsciousness.

10 Tips For Better Home Security

 

10-tips-for-better-home-security

Would you like some tips how to make your home less of a target for a home burglar? While the security goal isn’t to make your house completely break-in proof, all you need to do is some of these things to make your house a less attractive target than the other houses in your neighborhood…

Look at the surrounding houses and adjust accordingly. In other words, blend in rather than stand out from your neighbors. If you home has the fanciest front yard on the street, it tells a burglar that you have more than the others. You’re a target.

Don’t make it easy for someone to conceal themselves while breaking in. Avoid tall or large shrubs around your windows and doors. Home privacy fencing also provides shielding between the burglar and the street, giving them more freedom of movement without being seen by others. If you have fencing like this, then you especially need motion lights within the perimeter.

Have good exterior security lighting. The best thing is a motion sensor floodlight which says when it goes on…, “Hey, something’s going on over here.”

Burglars case a neighborhood before they rob it. They will know your home schedule and your neighbors schedule. Be aware of this fact and adjust if you can.

They will see whatever you have outside in plain sight, which will be visual clues as to the potential valuables inside. Anything that looks expensive outside will indicate that you probably have expensive stuff inside. Examples… a new car in the driveway, manicured landscaping, a swimming pool in the backyard, expensive outdoor furniture, you get the idea…

Look like you care about upkeep and security, but you don’t want to look like you’re in a competition with keeping up with the Joneses. You don’t want to look like you have anything valuable, even if you do.

Avoid doors which have glass near or within reach of the doorknob. This is a home security “no-no” which creates an easy “smash and twist” to easily get in your home. This is one of the first things a burglar will notice when casing the neighborhood. They are looking for easy access.

Ultra Slim Window Alert (in case you do have glass near the door knob)

If you have air conditioners in any of the first floor windows, be sure to secure them into the window sash or frame. It’s easy to do with just a few screws.

If you have nice stuff in your home, don’t make it easy for a burglar to look through a window and see inside. It’s especially easy to see into a home at night when the lights are on inside. Be aware of this and use window blinds.

If you are on vacation or away from home at night, a “Fake-TV”, reviewed here, will create a powerful illusion that someone is home.

The main take-away from this list is this…

Whether or not your home appears as a target for a burglar will largely depend upon what it all looks like from the outside to that burglar. Home security and your first line of defense is the “appearance” that there’s nothing special here… just move along. Put yourself in their shoes and look around your property and home from the street. Do you blend in?

Russia & China Hold Their Largest Naval Exercise – New

 

Amidst the endless coverage of the George Zimmerman trial and the incessant media post-mortems about it, some notable events are occurring around the world that go unreported in the major American media.

This link reports that Russia and China have held their largest exercise ever in a naval wargame. The exercise was held in the Sea of Japan, which can only be considered a very provocative gesture toward Japan. Japan and China are at odds over claims to a number of Oceanic islands and the rights of passage in the South China Sea, so this exercise only adds fuel to the fire of the Japanese-Chinese rift.

Also worth noting is that the Russian and Chinese armies will soon be holding an 18-day joint wargame exercise in the Ural Mountain region of Russia.

China and Russia are strategic allies. It is only natural that they are practicing joint military actions so their military forces can interact and communicate properly during any future war. All nations conduct such exercises. However, the Russian-Chinese joint military exercises are worth noting as Ezekiel 38-39′s prophecy warns that these nations will be key allies in the Gog-Magog alliance that will form in the latter days and attack the nations of “Israel” or “the house of Israel” (39:12, 22-23, 25) at the climax of our “latter day” period of time. As long-time readers of my books and website know, the “house of Israel” in biblical terminology does not refer to the Jews/Israelis (who are referred to as the “house of Judah”.) Few Christians understand this vital fact. Many Christian ministries that are keenly interested in biblical prophecy correctly see that the Gog-Magog alliance is the current one now including Russia, China, Iran, etc., and they also understand that we are living in the prophesied “latter days.” However, so many of them incorrectly assume the target of their attack is the little Israeli nation in the Mideast. Au Contraire! The real target can only be the modern nations of the ten tribes of Israel, who were always “Israel” or the “house of Israel” in biblical history or prophecy. Those who have read my books and articles or listened to my free audio messages know that the ten tribes of Israel can easily be located in the modern world. The USA, the British nations and many European nations are the modern ten tribes of Israel. It is easy to prove, and others before me have also made these identifications in earlier historical periods. My books are heavily documented with source quotes from many secular historical sources about the ten tribes of Israel during their migrations to their modern locations. My books even cite a message given to a joint session of the US Congress in 1855 revealing this fact to the American Congress (I’ll bet that is not in your history books). For a particular look at the USA in biblical prophecy, please read my article on this subject.

The simple fact is that the Creator God is moving relentlessly to fulfill his biblical prophecies with perfect accuracy. That a 2500 year-old prophecy is coming to pass so precisely in the modern world cannot be chance. If you have any doubt that we are now living in the biblically-prophesied “latter days,” please read my article, Are We Living in the Biblical Latter Days? My books can be ordered easily at the homepage of this website, and an E-book on the subject is also available for downloading. The E-book can also be ordered as an Amazon Kindle book. The amazing truth about the major events of our modern world were written about long ago in many biblical prophecies. What a shame the world is too hoodwinked by evolutionary nonsense to even seriously investigate the Bible’s content. 

When will the prophesied, age-ending attack of the Gog-Magog alliance vs. the modern nations of the ten tribes of Israel occur? We know it will be at the very end of this age as “God’s presence” arrives on the earth in Ezekiel 38:20 during the middle of the prophecy. My writings have estimated that this event will occur soon after the death of the prophesied Two Witnesses (Revelation 11). However, I could be wrong. It could happen earlier. As Russia, China and Iran militarize rapidly and the USA and NATO disarm rapidly, the USA will become a more appealing target as time goes by. Since the USA is now led by a president who knew nothing about military matters when he took office, Russia and China could conceivably wish to make their move during a time when the USA is led by a military novice. Seriously, did Obama ever so much as even fire a BB gun in his life before he took office as Commander-in-Chief of the entire US military forces?

What Does a Currency Collapse Look Like?

 

What Does a Currency Collapse Look Like?

truther July 13, 2013 8

Dave Hodges

In Part one of this series, I detailed how this administration has set themselves up to roll out martial law like no other martial law in history. Part one further revealed that the mechanisms needed for hard-core martial law are either active or merely waiting in the wings. All that is needed for unmistakable martial law to be rolled out in its entirety, is for the right trigger event to take place.

What Does a Currency Collapse Look Like

Will It Be a False Flag Attack Or a Currency Collapse?

My initial response to that question is, does it really matter? The pattern of societal collapse and subsequent governmental enslavement of the American people will be largely the same whether the precipitating incident is a false flag attack or a currency collapse. For the purpose of simplicity, let us call the precursor event to all-out martial law, a currency collapse.

The Federal Reserve Is the Enemy of Humanity

The Federal Reserve has been bleeding this country to death for exactly one century. What the dollar bought 100 years ago, can only buy three cents of product today. This means that 97% of the value of our currency has gone into the pockets of the Federal Reserve.

I am amazed at the abject ignorance of the American people that they think the Federal Reserve is actually part of the federal government. As we like to stay in the alternative media, the Federal Reserve is no more federal than Federal Express.

The Dollar Is Diving

The world is running from the dollar. Until recently, our dollar was used as the currency of international trading. Further, the dollar was also the reserve currency for oil. All foreign countries wishing to purchase oil from the Middle East, first had to purchase dollars from the Federal Reserve.
After FDR took us off the gold standard during the Great Depression and Richard Nixon finished the task of providing America with a totally fiat currency, the only backing that our dollar enjoys is that of being the reserve currency for both trading and for oil (i.e. the Petrodollar scam).

The major cause of the present calamity is fractional reserve banking. When the government goes to the private Federal Reserve and asks for one trillion dollars, the federal reserve gets to print one trillion for the government, at interest, and 10 trillion dollars for themselves and to lend out at high interest rates. This inflationary practice erodes the value of your dollar while enriching our Federal Reserve masters. Ultimately, the currency upon which we depend on will be destroyed and life as we know it will be changed forever.

A Changing of the Financial Guard

Today, many important nations are running from the dollar. Countries such as India, China, Iran, Japan, and Australia have signed their own trade agreements and their currency of choice is no longer the dollar!

When the collapse of the dollar occurs, it will literally and figuratively come like a thief in the night, and I do mean overnight!

We are all familiar with the concept of inflation, which is the intentional byproduct of the Federal Reserve. But I am not just talking inflation, I’m speaking about hyperinflation which is caused by the collapse of the value of the currency resulting in runaway prices. Here are three examples of how quickly a currency collapse can occur when a nation’s money no longer holds its value:

  • In Weimar Germany, from 1922 – 1923, prices doubled every three days.
  • In the modern era, Yugoslavia from 1992-94 witnessed prices doubling every 34 hours.
  • In Zimbabwe, in the two-year period from 2007 – 2008, prices doubled every 25 hours.

History is replete with examples of currency collapses and they typically follow very predictable patterns in which a nation unravels and social chaos, and many times, widespread violence and even genocide becomes part of the national landscape.

What Does a Currency Collapse Look Like?

Generally, when the currency collapses, a stock market crash is right on its heels. Because of the repeal of Glass-Steagall, a banking collapse will immediately occur following the collapse of the stock market. Your life savings will be wiped out. From this point on, the effect cascades like a roaring tsunami racing across the open ocean.

Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy demonstrated that gas stations will be bone dry within two days following a complete collapse. Subsequently, commerce will not move. If you are on vacation like I presently am, you may not make it home. On the second day following a currency collapse, being on the road will be a risky endeavor because of other desperate motorists.

With no available fuel, the grocery and drug stores will be empty within one to three days. There will be no food to be had except for that which is decaying in your refrigerator and that in which you can beg, borrow and steal from your neighbors who will also be begging, borrowing and stealing. If you have an adequate food and water supply, you better have an adequate gun and ammo supply in order to defend your assets. And when will you sleep? The protection of your critical assets is a 24/7 proposition. Therefore, having a cooperative survival plan is critical.

Without gas, people will stop going to work. Corporations will disappear overnight. Hurricane Katrina showed America that the police cannot be expected to stay on the job more than 48-72 hours as they will be home protecting their families and foraging for food and water like everyone else. The emergence of former police gangs will become common in an effort to secure the products which will ensure survival. Therefore, when your home is under attack, there will nobody to call. Everyone will be on their own.

The elderly and the chronically ill will be the first to die. Too old to defend their assets, the elderly will find themselves overpowered as they will make easy preys of opportunity for the roving gangs. The chronically ill will have no way to procure their medication and even if they survive the looting rampage which will follow a currency collapse, these poor souls will perish without access to their life-sustaining prescriptions.

The money in your wallet will be useless. Cell phones will not work. Heating and air conditioning will not work either and, depending on the time of year, the environment could prove deadly to untold numbers of people.

Water treatment plants will stop operating for the same reasons that you will not be able to find a cop during this crisis, nobody will be manning the water treatment plants. Toilets will back up and diseases will spread like wildfire. Something as simple as toilet paper will become a prized commodity. There will be no trash pickup and more disease will result due to the increased rodent population.

Clean drinking water and hunger will become the dominant motivator in society. Roving bands of looters, turned murderers, will sweep through neighborhoods seeking to obtain these critical elements of survival. Young women will sell themselves for a can of food for their children. Society will see the widespread loss of human dignity and self-respect.

Infanticide and euthanasia of the weak will become common events because there will be decided efforts to reduce the amount of mouths to feed. There will be the stark realization that the lights are not coming back on and the ensuing sense of hopelessness will lead to murder-suicides within families and simple incidences of suicide will be used as a means to escape the horrendous circumstances.

Humanity’s Darkest Hour

There will come a time when all the available animals will be devoured and then there will be only one place to turn to for food. History shows that cannibalism will set in by the beginning of the third week. Extreme hunger will lead to humans hunting humans as an available food supply. This will begin to occur within 15-20 days following the currency collapse.

The Government’s Version of the Final Solution

If the establishment military has properly planned, they will move into take control but they will not move quickly. The more death there is, the fewer people there will be to control. Government will typically move in with their solutions towards the end of the second week.

The reasons behind the creation of Executive Order 13603 will soon become readily apparent. You will retain ownership over nothing including food, water, guns, ammunition, your house, your car and even yourself. If you survive, you will be conscripted to work in some capacity in a specialty and location not of your choosing. On a positive note following this catastrophe, the debate over the existence of FEMA camps will be quickly determined and your NSA threat matrix score, resulting from their illegal surveillance, will have a lot to do with whether you survive or are executed as an enemy of the state. There is one ironclad thing that you can count on, food and water will be used to control the people following a currency collapse.

Who Will Help Us?

When past currency collapses occurred, organizations such as the World Bank, the IMF, the UN and the US have appeared to render their predatory version of help in exchange for control of critical infrastructure and other capital considerations. Because of this aid, more people survived in the impacted areas. However, what happens when the top dog collapses? Who would be able to come and render aid in America? Even in a world disgusted by our imperialistic ways, if a country wanted to offer help, could they? Not under the coming circumstances could anyone offer help because they will be in a worse situation.

In short, there will be nobody riding in to rescue the United States. Despite some rebelling against the dollar, the world is still dependent upon our currency. When the currency collapses it will pull the rest of world down with us. The subsequent collapse of global currencies will indeed constitute a major depopulation event and all the elite have to do is wait it out in places like the tunnels under Denver International Airport.

During this time, Americans will truly discover if there really are FEMA camps and what they will be used for. If people want to eat, they will be enticed to go where food is promised. Although you can count on the above-mentioned events transpiring in the event of a currency collapse, what lies ahead is unknown to a large extent because the top dog will has not been economically obliterated in modern history.

Conclusion

Obama is willing to talk about the 17 trillion dollar deficit. However, you never hear the government nor the media discuss the real debt. Our real financial obligations total 240 trillion dollars through programs like social security, Medicare, public pensions and welfare. Subsequently, I want to make one thing abundantly clear; It is not a matter if we are going to have a currency collapse, it is when. And the when is much sooner than later. It could happen tomorrow, next month and even next year. We do not have two years left in the American economic engine. A currency collapse is nothing that I look forward to, and people who intend on surviving the event should be in the midst of their preparations.

Ciò che non viene riportato dai mass media sull’Egitto

 

Protesters against Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi in Tahrir Square in Cairo

Dalla rimozione di Hosni Mubarak dalla guida dell’Egitto e dal conseguente insediamento del suo successore Mohamed Mursi, abbiamo assistito ad un progressivo deterioramento delle istituzioni egiziane che ha portato all’inevitabile caos attuale e al colpo di stato perpetrato dalle forze armate egiziane.

Sequenza Profetica è una finestra sullo scenario degli ultimi tempi, proponendosi di interpretare i fatti di cronaca rilevanti, alla luce della profezia biblica. Pertanto, l’evolversi dello scenario in Egitto ci permette di sostenere, senza alcun dubbio, che l’oracolo di Isaia si sta per compiere sotto i nostri occhi.

Questo è quello che non leggerai mai sui quotidiani internazionali, nè tantomeno sentirai commentare:

Ecco, il SIGNORE cavalca una nuvola leggera ed entra in Egitto;
gli idoli d’Egitto tremano davanti a lui
e all’Egitto si scioglie il cuore nel petto.
«Io inciterò Egiziani contro Egiziani,
combatteranno il fratello contro il fratello, il vicino contro il vicino,
città contro città, regno contro regno.
Lo spirito che anima l’Egitto svanirà,
io renderò vani i suoi disegni;
quelli consulteranno gli idoli, gli incantatori,
gli evocatori di spiriti e gli indovini.
Io darò l’Egitto in mano di un signore duro,
un re crudele dominerà su di lui»,
dice il Signore, DIO degli eserciti.

Isaia 19:1-4

Nelle prossime settimane ci aspettiamo un crescendo di violenza senza precedenti, mentre la cronaca stessa farà da sfondo all’oracolo di Isaia.

Anche se ci troviamo di fronte all’inevitabile nuova guerra civile, è giusto ricordare che, secondo quanto profetizzato da Isaia, lo stesso Dio sembra essere dietro allo scatenarsi del conflitto interno all’Egitto. Ora però, è importante collocare questo oracolo nel contesto della profezia biblica sugli ultimi tempi nel suo insieme. Per far questo, non possiamo fare a meno di collegarlo ad un altro aspetto altrettanto significativo, cioè che, contestualmente all’evolversi degli eventi già predetti dagli scrittori sacri, esiste un altro fattore che fa da sfondo alla scena internazionale. E’ il fattore spirituale delle forze del male operanti nei luoghi celesti, così come nel mondo visibile. A tal proposito, l’apostolo Paolo disse espressamente che, “il mistero dell’empietà è già in atto” (2 Tess. 2:7) favorendo l’ascesa di colui che, con l’intento di portare avanti il suo nefasto piano di conquista, servendosi delle armi dell’inganno e della seduzione, affermerà se stesso come portatore di pace, dopo aver provocato, con ogni astuzia possibile, le condizioni favorevoli alla sua ascesa.

Ad esempio, ciò che i mass media omettono di riportare è quello di ricordare all’opinione pubblica i giorni in cui il presidente Obama fece di tutto per rimuovere Hosni Mubarak e spalleggiare l’insediamento di Mohamed Mursi al potere con gli estremisti Fratelli Musulmani. Chi ha orecchi da udire oda.

Global SITREP A16-13: "I Will Set Egyptians Against Egyptians"

 

03 July 2013: Today the Egyptian military made good on its 48-hour ultimatum and sacked the Islamist al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun President Mohamed Morsi. The announcement was made on Egyptian TV by 58-year old Army Chief of Staff General Abdul-Fattah Khalil el-Sisi this evening because President Morsi "did not meet the demands of the masses."

In the announcement General el-Sisi suspended the Egyptian constitution and effectively removed the Islamist Ikhwan from governance, replacing it with a technocratic interim ruling council led by the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court while preparations for a new round of transition elections are planned for.

General el-Sisi's announcement was greeted with wild jubilation and fireworks in Cairo's Tahrir Square while to the north, in Alexandria, armed clashes between Islamists and anti-Ikhwan protesters are raging this evening on its streets.

The situation in Egypt is extremely dangerous and a new phase of the Isaiah 19 prophecy concerning Egypt is unfolding before our eyes. The Islamists can be counted on to launch a counter-coup with the goal of killing the popular Egyptian style democracy and replacing with a totalitarian, clerical Islamist regime like that of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Egypt's troubles are just beginning.

DATELINE 23 June 2013:

Obama Administration
Caught Spying Hard

It is the year of the Black Water Snake in Chinese Astrology. Government espionage and spy scandals wait in the grass, to slither out making unexpected strikes. The following passage was originally intended to appear in my forthcoming eBook Predictions for 2013 and 2014 soon to be released in the first half of July. It would have been in Chapter 3: The Drone-Wellian World Coming under the subsection “I speak Double-“Peek”. There are so many other predictions in the chapter, I thought I would share the following one now, what with all that CIA whistleblower Edward Snowden has recently exposed this June. This passage was documented and filed ten weeks ago on 8 April 2013:

Watch for the doublespeak and double-peeking signs. President Obama often with bipartisan effort in US Congress lobbies in the name of intellectual copyright protection with an ulterior goal in mind:  suppressing the social media and Internet the same way totalitarian China monitors and censures free speech and free sharing of information and ideas for your “safety”. For “your” safety in the US, Obama’s high rhetoric shifts from jihadist bombers to computer hackers attacking the power grid, shutting off government computers, turning off Atomic Power plant systems causing meltdowns. Ever the control freaks of government will use real dangers as an excuse to control all pathways of information to “protect you.”

Here is another prediction I entered in the book on 21 May 2013 under Chapter One: Fire in the Sky in the subsection:

The year 2013 is the Year of the Snake in Chinese astrology. The opposition to Obama should look for real scandals rather than fabricate them. There will be real scandals. This is the year.

After the CIA scandal blew the lid off what Obama’s National Security Agency was doing, I added the following assessment into the book documented and filed on 16 June 2013:

***

Click on the cover, and read more.

The day before I inserted the 21 May update, Edward Snowden, a NSA operative told his supervisors he needed time off to treat his epilepsy. He flew from Hawaii for Hong Kong. What Snowden was in fact doing was escaping the US to seek asylum in Hong Kong for leaking to the Washington Post and the UK Guardian, the NSA’s secret surveillance program called PRISM.

Talk about a Year of the Snake scandal for the Obama Administration!

This snake slipped out to bite US intelligence agencies and bleed out from that security breach what may be the biggest leak of sensitive, top secret activities in US history. Snowden has exposed a vast Internet spying network actively used and enhanced by President Obama and his National Security Agency.

The pouring of Snowden’s information into global press organizations is ongoing. Already the intelligence gives objective evidence implicating the US government caught red handed in major cyber warfare hacking attacks on China and Iran. Evidence exposes the NSA and CIA achieving deep infiltration to monitor people all over the world and spy on even close allies, such as Germany and other EU nations, causing worldwide shock and disdain from enemies of the US and friends alike.

The Washington Post further reports the following and unsettling revelation that proves what futurists like myself and journalists outside the mainstream media have indicated was afoot. Big Brother is watching you, World.

“The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies,” writes Max Ehrenfreund, “extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track foreign targets.

“The program, code-named PRISM, has not been made public until now. It may be the first of its kind. The NSA prides itself on stealing secrets and breaking codes, and it is accustomed to corporate partnerships that help it divert data traffic or sidestep barriers. But there has never been a Google or Facebook before, and it is unlikely that there are richer troves of valuable intelligence than the ones in Silicon Valley.” [National Security, Washington Post, 10 June 2013].

***

Snowden this morning few from Hong Kong to Moscow with the aid of WikiLeaks. I would assume his interactions with them used the new encryption computer programs keeping snooping eyes off private email communications. He is staying overnight at the Moscow airport, waiting for his asylum request to be cleared by the Ecuadorian government. When this all started I predicted to one of my Facebook friends that Snowden would go to Russia. I forget who I sent the forecast to, perhaps “T”, currently in Hong Kong, was the one.

I can share another interchange with “T”:

T
This is a golden opportunity for the USA to show China what democracy is all about. The Chinese intelligentsia and youth are watching closely. If they see that the US deals with this in an open and transparent way, it will reinforce their belief that democracy works, and further weaken the one party system of the PRC [People’s Republic of China]. If not, they will basically conclude that at least the Chinese system works efficiently.
