Just When I Was Thinking Of Moving

Oh crap. Bad news from a Fox affiliate:
Mosquitoes 20 times the size of normal mosquitoes could invade Florida this summer, experts say.

The female galinipper (Psorophora ciliata), a very large mosquito with hairy legs, feeds day and night and are common in Florida.
Merciful Heavens. They'll be wearing Kevlar Speedos in Palm Beach.
"It's about the size of a quarter. ... It's about 20 times bigger than the sort of typical, Florida mosquito that you find," says Anthony Pelaez of the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa. "And it's mean, and it goes after people, and it bites, and it hurts."

Said Pinellas County extension agent Jane Morse: "It's huge. And it hurts.

New Age, New World, Blah Blah Claptrap

If you can stomach it, give 20 minutes of your life to view this puke, for it will give you insight into how even the elect can be fooled by soaring words and empty rhetoric. Plus it probably makes a lot more sense if you're stoned.

This is what the human intellect,divorced from God, perceives. It is a voyage into absurd verbiage that means whatever you want it to mean. The author's introduction of this video states:
"We have said before that “the time has come”, and that “the revolution has begun”. And now, with the passage of time and the willingness to learn we stand in the light of our expanded awareness to see that the Earth does not require a Revolution on the part of humanity, but, rather, she is lovingly urging our Evolution; an evolution that awaits all those who are willing to humble themselves and ‘let go’ of what they know. For, it is only in ‘letting go’ that one may become ‘open like a child’ and receive the grace of world-altering Revelations."

This is not the Revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is a nutter-filled nougat covered with a crunchy karma shell; a New Age multi-god chip served with Taoist dip. It is Satan's KY Jelly to ease your passage into the nether world.

I say this because it is an invitation into a spiritual realm that is controlled by the Prince of this World and, no, I'm not talking about Harry.
John 12:31
Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.
Ephesians 6:12
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Spiritual/psychic experimentation, such as remote viewing and astral projection simply exposes an individual to satanic influences. And, yes, those links deal with the US government's involvement with psychic phenomena. There are US Senators who are into this crap and taxpayers dollars are diverted into this cesspool.

The Old Testament had a simple remedy for this activity - death.
Exodus 22:18 ""Do not allow a sorceress to live."

Leviticus 19:31 "'Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.

Leviticus 20:6 "'I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people."

Leviticus 20:27 "'A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death. You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads.'"

Deuteronomy 18:10 "Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead."

In a post-Christian America we should be aware of the direction our government is taking and who is actually behind the wheel of this bus as it goes over the cliff.

OMG! Call Gov. Cuomo! Shots Fired In NY School!

Bloody headline torn from the bleeding pages of the NY Daily News:

Cop assigned to guard NY high school in wake of Sandy Hook massacre suspended after gun goes off in hallway

Oopsies. Sorry 'bout dat.

HIGHLAND, N.Y. (AP) - A New York town that began assigning an armed police officer to guard a high school in the wake of the Connecticut massacre has suspended the program after an officer accidentally discharged his pistol in a hallway while classes were in session.

Lt. James Janso of the Lloyd police department tells media outlets Officer Sean McCutcheon will be suspended while an investigation continues.
I'll bet they feel safer now.

The End Times, Closer Than You Think

Rev. 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ , which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John:

Strong's Concordance: REVELATION
disclosure:--appearing, coming, lighten, manifestation, be revealed, revelation.

1) laying bear, making naked
2) a disclosure of truth, instruction
2a) concerning things before unknown
2b) used of events by which things or states or persons hitherto withdrawn from view are made visible to all
3) manifestation, appearance

The thing about God's revelation of future events is that they don't make sense until they are unfolding. Who could have foreseen the establishment of modern united Israel on May 14, 1948 after two thousand years of dispersal and persecution? Yet this was foretold in the Old Testament. Here are just three prophetic utterances regarding the reestablishment of Israel, there are more:
Isaiah 66:7-8
“Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.”

Ezekiel 37:21-22
... and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms.

Jeremiah 16:14-15
“However, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when men will no longer say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but they will say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ For I will restore them to the land I gave their forefathers.
God says it and it is as good as done. So when God warns us about the End Times, you can rest assured that something is cooking.

I am saying this in reflection of recent technological innovations and other developments where it is apparent that the fulfillment of biblical revelations can be easily anticipated. As in The Book of Revelations, Chapter Nine, verses 3 through 6:
And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
What follows is a mini-drone that looks like a small mosquito. Known as "nano-biomimicry MAV designs", these drones are patterned after insects and are capable of conducting video surveillance and can also be equipped with lethal delivery systems. The Air Force and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has been working on these designs for years.

While there may be literal beasts that emerge from Hell to torment mankind, we can also see that mankind is perfectly capable of tormenting himself. It is reported that military drones have already killed more than 4700 people since their first use in 2002. It is estimated that the US armed forces now have somewhere between 7,000 to 11,000 drones and other agencies are buying them for civilian applications. By 2020 there may be over 30,000 drones in use just within the US.

What follows does not need extensive technological development.
The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

Rev. 14:9-11
“If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”
This technology has been around for some time. Bar codes, microchips and RFID technology can easily be adapted for subcutaneous applications to force any nation into a "cashless society" mode. It is already being utilized in pets.

Ostensibly this measure would be justified to the public through the ruse of reducing crime. But it would also eliminate the possibility of any economic activity that could occur outside the government's purview. Every stick of gum, every cigarette, every loaf of bread, every pair of shoes, every book, every aspirin, every DVD, every round of ammunition, everything and anything you buy will be a transaction recorded and possibly controlled by the government.

All it takes is for an anonymous bureaucrat to make a computer entry, just a few key strokes with your social security number and - presto - you are no longer able to buy certain commodities. The prohibited purchase is out of your reach until the restriction is lifted. The government now has complete and utter control over your life. And given who is in control of our government right now, this is not a good thing.

But for Christians, this is not worrisome. As a premillennialist, I believe that God's Church will be removed from the earth before these events come to pass - the Rapture. We are not the object of God's wrath.

I'm cutting this short for now but there are other developments that lend credence to the belief that we are fast approaching the end of days. So, be of good cheer and tighten your lug nuts friends, this is gonna be a bumpy ride. But our final destination makes it all worth while. Praise God.

WVU Salutes Our Armed Forces

My brother and sister and I were in a drum and bugle corps in high school. I thought our corps was pretty good, but the video below is astounding. Enjoy the West Virginia University Marching Band and their salute to our nation's armed forces!

A Coronal Mass Ejection

Stars are incredible celestial bodies whose physical properties almost defy description. The power released by our own Sun is inconceivable; we may be able to measure it but there is no way we can actually wrap our minds around it. The Sun can kill us from 92 million miles away.

What follows is time lapse photography of a solar flare and a coronal mass ejection at the same time. During the video you will see a pop up of our planet (on the upper right) that shows the scale of this eruption. Keep in mind that the Earth has a diameter of just under 8,000 miles.

From the Daily Time Waster:
An "eruption on the Sun that produced both a Coronal Mass Ejection and a moderate solar flare. What was more unusual, however, was what happened next. Plasma in the nearby solar corona was imaged cooling and falling back, a phenomenon known as coronal rain. Because they are electrically charged, electrons, protons, and ions in the rain were gracefully channeled along existing magnetic loops near the Sun's surface, making the scene appear as a surreal three-dimensional sourceless waterfall. The resulting surprisingly-serene spectacle is shown in ultraviolet light and highlights matter glowing at a temperature of about 50,000 Kelvin. Each second in the above time lapse video takes about 6 minutes in real time, so that the entire coronal rain sequence lasted about 10 hours."

Cuomo's SAFE Anti-Gun Ban Faces Injunction

His Imperial Highness Cuomo just got slapped in the kisser with the threat of a NYS Supreme Court injunction if state attorney's cannot prove that the SAFE Act passed during the wee hours of January 14, passes the Constitutional sniff test. It stinks to High Heaven but the fact that NYS legislators were not allowed a mandatory three day period to review the legislation does not bode well for this latest NY edition of the Borgia family.

From Utica station WKTV:
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Buffalo-based attorney who is spear-heading a lawsuit against Governor Andrew Cuomo's recent gun laws said that Wednesday was "monumental," as a State Supreme Court Justice issued an order requiring New York State to show good cause that the law is constitutional.

New York State has until April 29 to respond or else an injunction will be issued.
