There are a number of things happening now that have concerned many about this coming week.  Following this week, I’ll be glad to view this post in retrospect as hind sight is 20/20.   So what are these ‘things’ that are about to happen?

Remember all the hype about the comet Elenin?  Many of those who were skeptical of the Elenin – Niburu connecton certainly seem justified while many other’s are somewhat disappointed.  What next?  Well, believe it or not there is another heavenly body that hasn’t had the media attention of Elenin, and that is the asteroid, YU 55.  Unlike Elenin, which missed the earth by  21 million miles, the asteroid YU 55 will be closer, much closer.  So close that it will pass nearer to earth than the moon.  The track of the asteroid will bring it by the earth on November 8/9 -2011.  It is a pretty big one, over 1/4 mile in diameter according to astronomers yet we are assured that it will cruise harmlessly by the earth and moon.  However there is speculation at this point by conspiracy theorists that the general population isn’t being told the whole truth about it.  There are a number of coincidences that are also happening.  You remember earlier this year NASA warned its employees to be prepared for emergencies. Before this, FEMA ordered $1 billion in dehydrated food.  Apparently,  UNESCO is planning a Pacific Wide Tsunami Warning and Communication Exercise on November 9, 10.   In addition the US is going to conduct a “First-ever nationwide test of US emergency system.”  The test, which will start at 2:00pm ET and last approximately three minutes,  will resemble periodic monthly EAS tests — the ones with long tonal sounds and  a “this is a test” announcement — that most people are familiar with.”

Such a comprehensive test has never been done in the US before, and the FCC  said it is taking action now because it needs “to know that the system will work  as intended should public safety officials ever need to send an alert or warning  to a large region of the United States.

There are more “coincidences” like the construction of underground shelters in Denver…but who knows.   I’ll revisit this post later – maybe.

 

“Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” –John Adams, letter to John Taylor, 1814

A lynch mob is a democracy.

We are a nation of law (a Republic) though many in the Occupy Wall Street movement have forgotten that.

“I’m really starting to think that reason that the Tea Party people don’t believe in evolution is because they haven’t been part of the process.” – Lizz Winstead (MSNBC)

“You notice how people who believe in creationism look really unevolved?” – Bill Hicks, from clip on Countdown/Keith Olberman

You will notice there are many false statements made by these ‘evolutionists’ who use them to denigrate those with a Biblical world view. It certainly illustrates the one-sided kind of guile perpetrated against those with a Biblical world view. Usually it is from these same types whose whole idea of ethics can be summed up in the word; “Tolerance.” The hypocrisy is obvious when there is no tolerance from this ilk when it comes to people who proclaim the Bible to be the Word of God.

Miracle on Highway 50

I have a Class A motor home and a 4X4 tow vehicle I pull behind it.  While at Tahoe, I thought I had a problem with the gas. The engine would start and idle but when going up a grade the RPM would slow to a stop.  I then thought it might be vapor lock.  So we left in the cool of the morning and going up the grade on Highway 50 out of Tahoe, the RPM slowed and the engine quit.  The problem is, at the point where the rig quit, there was a rock wall on the right and a sheer cliff on the left – and the road was two lanes wide.  I tried to get it started, but now it would not start. Traffic backed up behind us and soon, people started chancing going around us in the face of oncoming traffic. By now, the primary battery was nearly dead, so I switched to the house batteries.  I told my wife to start praying.  After a half dozen near collisions, in a panic, I remember saying, “somebody’s going to get killed and it’s my fault.”  Finally, in desperation I slapped my hand on the dashboard and shouted, “In the name of Jesus, START!”  I turned the key one more time and it immediately started up and ran perfectly. Hours later we reached the dealer in Yuba City, CA.  Being Monday, the end of a three day weekend I knew they would be closed, but coincidentally we arrived as the manager was there to do some work in their retail shop, and the gates were opened.  I pulled up to the normal drop off area and the engine quit before I could turn the key off.  My wife and I looked at each other. For grins, I tried and tried to re-start the engine, but no dice – not a ‘cough’ or ‘snort.’ We unhitched the 4×4 and drove the two hours to home, relieved at the days events.
I received a call that Tuesday from the service manager. We talked and he asked, “How did you get it here?  The mechanics can’t get it started.” I told him – ‘Prayer.’  A few days later I was called to come pick it up.  When I arrived, I spoke to one of the mechanics who worked on it. He explained that it wasn’t vapor lock, since the fuel pump on most vehicles these days is inside the gas tank. He explained that they dropped the tank, checked the fuel pump and it only was able to produce about 7 pounds of pressure, not nearly enough to push the fuel through the injectors so they replaced it.
Since then my wife and I have traveled thousands of trouble free miles.  Yet every time I sit down in the driver’s seat, I remember that day, on Highway 50, the screeching of tires and horns blaring – and a God who hears and answers prayers…and I pause to breathe a word of thanks to God for his mercy and saving grace that kept us safe, and moved us out of harm’s way. 

The Real Face of Jesus

Scientists and graphic artists are able, with today’s technology, to raise a three dimensional image from the Shroud of Turin to reveal precisely what the face of  the man in the Shroud looked like.   They’ve even been able to create a life size figure of the head and using a printer – scanner were able to match the appearance of the image exactly as it appears on the Shroud.  The mystery remains on exactly how the photographic image was formed except there was light that traveled through the body similar to the way the light moves in a photo copy machine.  Is the image of the man in the Shroud actually the Lord Jesus Christ?  That may not be proven to everyone’s satisfaction however I now believe it is (with no  doubt in my mind), the actual burial cloth that Jesus Christ was wrapped in. Further,  the image was imprinted on the cloth at the moment the resurrection took place.  Jesus Christ did indeed rise from the dead.


No one believes seniors . . . everyone thinks they are senile.
An elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired. Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they’d shared, where Andy had carved “I love you, Sally .”
On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money –
fifty thousand dollars!
Andy said, “We’ve got to give it back.”
Sally said, “Finders keepers.” She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic.

The next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money, and knocked on their door. “Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?”
Sally said, “No”.
Andy said, “She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.
Sally said, “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile”
The agents turned to Andy and began to question him. One said: “Tell us the story from the beginning.”

Andy said, “Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday ……”
The first police officer turned to his partner and said, “We’re outta here!”


TOO GOOD NOT TO SHARE

And Then:
Earl and Bubba are quietly sitting in a boat fishing,
chewing tobacco and drinking beer when suddenly
Bubba says, “Think I’m gonna divorce the wife – she
ain’t spoke to me in over 2 months.”

Earl spits overboard, takes a long, slow sip of beer and says,

“Better think it over………….women like that are hard to find.”

Quote of the Week

“It is necessary for every American, with becoming energy to endeavor to stop the dissemination of principles evidently destructive of the cause for which they have bled. It must be the combined virtue of the rulers and of the people to do this, and to rescue and save their civil and religious rights from the outstretched arm of tyranny, which may appear under any mode or form of government.” –Mercy Warren, History of the Rise, Progress, and Termination of the American Revolution, 1805

Double Standard Bigotry

Are you a do-it-yourselfer?  Do you enjoy going down to Home Depot and picking up some things to make your life and your home and yard better?  The people there are usually helpful and courteous making it a pleasent experience. 

But, suppose you’re one of those workers, who out of the many personal buttons and slogans worn by other employees, decides to wear an unobtrusive button that simply reflects your patriotism?   Cause for dismissal? 

“The Home Depot fired an employee for refusing to remove a Flag button bearing the words“One nation under God, Indivisible”  from his work apron. Trevor Keezor, a Christian, said he wore the button to support his country and his 27-year-old brother in the military who was soon to be deployed in Iraq.  Home Depot claimed it has a “blanket policy, which is long-standing and well-communicated to our associates, that only company-provided pins and badges can be worn on our aprons.”

The Patriotic button didn’t  become an issue until Trevor began bringing a Bible to work to read on his lunch hour.

“Dozens of homosexual employees participated in Home Depot-sponsored gay pride parades and festivals. Many employees wore numerous buttons on their aprons promoting homosexuality. The Home Depot defended them by saying homosexual employees will not be prohibited “in any way” when it comes to what they do and wear.” 

In my world, such a double standard is hypocritical, anti-Christian and shows contempt for words that are expressed in the Pledge of Allegiance…  In addition to being hypocritical, their position  is un-American and I for one will have no problem excluding Home Depot from all of my future DIY projects.  If it is true that workers may only be allowed to wear company-provided pins and badges, as stated in their official policy, then it becomes obvious that Home Depot practices discrimination unless you express support for the gay lifestyle. 

If you would like to pledge to boycott the Home Depot, as I have, go to the following website:

http://www.boycottthehomedepot.com/

Furthermore, every time I make a purchase at a competitor store, I intend to let The Home Depot know how much money they are losing. Each time I make a purchase at a competitor store, I will use The Home Depot’s website feedback form to let them know how much money they’re losing to their competitors.
It should also be noted that the Home Depot is active in gay day parades and events.
