Mother is about to bring full rebellion to Satan’s empire. Hard as he is trying to keep peace, he will not be able to halt the people from rebelling against the governments. There is a reason for the job failures and the staggering economy, and the lost homes. All designed to culminate against each government of every nation affected by this curse from Mother.
Malachi 1:4 “Though Edom says: “We have been devastated, but we will rebuild the ruins,” the LORD of Hosts says this: “They may build, but I will demolish. They will be called a wicked country and the people the LORD has cursed forever.”
Satan will bring the nations back up from ruin for a short while, but they will not hold together. During that period of destruction, the people will seek their true benefactor that is opposed to Christ and Mother. The Antichrist will then make his appearance. The people will be awed by Satan’s regained powers and his strength to bring peace to this world of people. But it will not last. Mother will see to that.
Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on the left, ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels!”
From Hurricane Irene, which soaked the entire East Coast in August, to the Midwest tornadoes, which wrought havoc from Wisconsin to Texas, 2011 has seen more billion-dollar natural disasters than any year on record, according to the National Climatic Data Center. And as America’s hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and wildfires set records this year, so too has President Obama in his response to them. During the first 10 months of this year President Obama declared 89 major disasters, more than the record 81 declarations that he made in all of 2010. And Obama has declared more disasters — 229 — in the first three years of his presidency than almost any other president signed in their full four-year terms. Only President George W. Bush declared more, having signed 238 disaster declarations in his second term, from 2005 to 2009. But while the sheer number of bad weather events played a big role in the uptick in presidential disaster declarations, Obama’s record-setting year may have something to do with politics as well. “There’s no question about it that the increase in the number of disaster declarations is outstripping what we would expect to see, given what we observe in terms of weather,” said Robert Hartwig, the president and economist at the Insurance Information Institute. “There’s a lot of political pressure on the president and Congress to show they are responsive to these sorts of disasters that occur.” While the president aimed to authorize swift and sweeping aid to disaster victims, Congress was entrenched in partisan battles over how to foot the bill. When Republicans demanded that additional appropriations for a cash-strapped FEMA be offset by spending cuts, the government was almost shut down over disaster relief funding. –ABC News
Mother is using this ministry to bring forth Her prophecy. There is a reason people will blaspheme Her. It is this ministry’s duty to drop the spiritual hailstones that are a wake up call. The physical enormous hailstones follow our message to mankind. Mother wants people to know who the calamities have been coming from and who they will continue to come from:
Revelation 16:21 “Enormous hailstones, each weighing about 100 pounds, fell from heaven on the people, and they blasphemed God for the plague of hail because that plague was extremely severe.”
Severity is about to become much worse. Satan is not the cause, and Mother wants everyone to know that it comes directly from Her – The One in control, and the One whom is nature. Then, this will come to pass as well:
Psalm 83:18 “May they know that You alone— whose name is Yahweh—are the Most High over all the earth.”
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney broke with Republican orthodoxy this summer, telling a crowd in Manchester, N.H., that humans are at least somewhat responsible for climate change. Now Think Progress reports he’s reversing his position, arguing “we don’t know what’s causing climate change.”
“My view is that we don’t know what’s causing climate change on this planet,” he said at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pa. “And the idea of spending trillions and trillions of dollars to try to reduce CO2 emissions is not the right course for us. My view with regards to energy policy is pretty straightforward: I want us to become energy secure and independent of the oil cartels.”
The remarks come in stark contrast to his stated energy policy priorities.
“I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that,” he said at a town hall this June. “It’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors.”
With his fellow GOP presidential contenders engaging in different shades of climate denial, Romney has distanced himself from those remarks. In an Oct. 3 interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader posted online Thursday night, he elaborates on his new position on global warming.
“I say it’s probably happening, all right? I think it’s happening,” he said when questioned about a passage in his 2010 book “No Apology” that deals with climate change.
“You said in June you believe the world is getting warmer and that humans have contributed to that,” noted one reporter, quoting a line that comes directly from his book.
“And continue to the next line after that,” Romney pressed.
“It’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors,” said the reporter.
“I say in the book three things,” said a frustrated Romney. “One, I believe what I said before, I think it’s getting warmer. Two, I believe we contribute to it. And three, I don’t know by how much — a lot or a little. And I am not willing to adopt multitrillion dollar programs to reduce greenhouse gases in America. They don’t call it America warming, they call it global warming.”
As president, Romney added, he would “aggressively develop oil and gas, as well as use our coal resources.” Nuclear too would be a priority, though he said that it would require a long lead time.
“Of course I like the renewable resources, but I’m not in favor of sending checks for half a billion dollars as a venture capitalist to various favored solar companies,” he said, in a conspicuous reference to Solyndra.
Romney’s climate denial puts him in line with most every other contender in the Republican presidential field.
Herman Cain has called the very premise of climate change “a scam,” while former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) has referred to it as nothing more than a “trend,” accusing the left of “taking advantage” of it by creating “a beautifully concocted scheme because they know that the earth is gonna cool and warm.”
Back in 2009, meanwhile, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) argued on the House floor that the very concept of global warming is faulty because “carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of nature!”
In an August stump speech, Texas Gov. Rick Perry took the skepticism about climate change one step further, telling a New Hampshire business crowd that scientists have cooked up the data on global warming for the cash.
“We’re seeing weekly, or even daily, scientists who are coming forward and questioning the original idea that man-made global warming is what’s causing the climate to change,” Perry said at the time. “Yes, our climates change. They’ve been changing ever since the earth was formed.”
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) has become increasingly skeptical of climate change, calling it “the greatest hoax I think that has been around for many, many years, if not hundreds of years,” in a 2009 interview with Fox News.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) appeared alongside former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a 2008 ad that urged the country to address climate change, but has since switched to denial.
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is the only mainstream Republican presidential contender who has been outspoken about the need for climate action, calling Republicans’ failure to address climate change at the national level “immensely frustrating.” Within the GOP presidential field, he’s green advocates’ best hope. – HuffingtonPost
Keep in mind that the spiritual war is fought on two fronts.
1. It is a spiritual battle that involves weather and other related phenomena to cause destruction and widespread desolation.
2. It is fought by using mankind as its own worst enemy.
Mankind has helped to bring much of the disasters now happening. Father is simply helping things progress much more quickly. The bowls of wrath are tribulation (i.e., a state of great trouble or suffering.) It is not intended to serve as a like scenario of the global flood by causing total destruction. That comes with the cup of wrath. The cup is poured out upon the earth just as the rains were at the great flood. At this time, people are experiencing great trouble and are suffering from the bowls of wrath that are given as a sign that the Great Tribulation has arrived. Read Revelation.
There things occur but the masses are not repentant. Father is revealing Her great power over nature and Her intervention into world governments affairs, but only those that are perceptive are aware of what’s happening. Each move on the chess board in the tribulation period is designed to fulfill the prophecies Father inspired to the writers of the Word long ago.
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - September’s T.S. Lee was just another reminder that Louisiana is one of the nation’s true ‘hot spots’ when it comes to tropical landfalls. In addition, Lee is just another example of a long list of weather events making 2011 an extraordinary year for extreme weather over the United States.
A recent report by the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) notes that by the end of September, the U.S. had already broken the record number of federal disaster declarations issued in a single year. The 86 federal disaster declarations through the first nine months of 2011 tops the previous annual record of 81, which was set just last year. In addition, the estimated price tag of nearly $25 billion through September places 2011 among the five or six costliest years on record in terms of insurance claims.
By comparison, for the 15 years from 1996 through 2010, there were an average of 58 such declarations per year, and only three years — 1996, 2008 and 2010 — had 75 or more declarations. Some of the increase since the mid 1990s can be attributed to a greater willingness on the fed’s part to issue declarations, but certainly Mother Nature has been extra busy in recent years.
Not only has 2011 been extraordinarily active in terms of the number of weather-related disasters, but the U.S. has suffered through a full array of extreme weather events this year.
A powerful winter storm over much of the central and eastern U.S. at the end of January began the run of extremes, followed by one of the deadliest and most active “tornado seasons” on record for the nation as a whole. Spring and summer Ohio and Mississippi river flooding added to the burden, while one of the most devastating droughts on record persists across the Southern Plains, extending into western and northern Louisiana. The Southern U.S. drought has not only been devastating for the region’s agriculture, but it also has spawned record and near-record wildfire frequencies.
(It is worth noting that the 2011 drought over the Southern U.S. can be traced back to its beginnings over northern Louisiana in the spring of 2010. Critical drought conditions over the Southern Plains did not develop until six months later.)
And more recently, August’s Hurricane Irene — with her track from the Carolinas into New England — wreaked havoc through the nation’s most densely populated corridor.
All of these extreme events come at a time when Congress is debating how to continue FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a program of critical importance to many flood-prone Louisiana residents.
Without doubt, Louisiana is too often a target of Mother Nature’s wrath, ranking sixth in the nation based on the numbers of federal declarations by state since 1953. Of these top six states, all five of the states with more declarations are larger in size and only Oklahoma has a smaller statewide population. And keep in mind that these account for only major federal declarations and do not include additional state disaster declarations that do not qualify for federal response.
It comes as no surprise that tropical weather is a big reason for the high number of federal declarations for the Bayou State, and historically, tropical systems have been responsible for most of the state’s costliest weather disasters. But many underestimate the role of non-tropical weather, accounting for roughly two-thirds of Louisiana’s federal declarations since the program began (in 1953). Indeed, winter/spring storms account for more than half of the total federal declarations issued for Sportsman’s Paradise. Even during the last 20 years, when Louisiana has suffered a marked increase in tropical weather impacts, Louisiana has been included in more federal declarations for non-tropical weather events than for tropical storms and hurricanes.
Annual tropical activity over the Atlantic Basin has been above the long-term average routinely since the mid 1990s, and a consensus outlook by hurricane experts indicates that this elevated activity is likely to continue for at least another decade or more. The impact of this recent upswing in storm counts for Louisiana has been obvious: more than a doubling of the average number of tropical impacts per decade for Louisiana during 2001-2010. At the same time, many from within climate-science circles believe that we should prepare for more frequent occurrences of all types of weather and climatic extremes in the coming decades, largely due to the theories behind (rapid) climate change.
No doubt, Louisiana not only needs to remain extra-ready for another decade of all-too-frequent tropical ‘hits,’ but should brace for the potential of increased severe weather year-round! – WAFB
The LOZ (Lions of Zion, Yahweh’s Elite Warriors) has been successful in that they have been primarily causing collateral damage via natural disasters verses the loss of life. Adding to the monetary loss of this country’s treasury. This being Satan’s throne of authority, the LOZ is nudging him toward his new seat of rulership as he realizes he cannot sustain this country due to the ever mounting debt. The infrastructure – aging bridges, buildings, dams, etc., this all is set for a crumbling-to-ground effect when the LOZ launches its campaign to tremor the fault lines in the USA. That will bring forth the final demise of the already debt ridden nation.
Washington (CNN) – The Senate on Monday night reached a bipartisan agreement intended to end a dispute over disaster relief spending that threatened to cause a partial shutdown of the government at the end of the week.
In two votes, the Senate approved short-term spending measures to fund the government for the start of the new fiscal year that begins Saturday.
It passed the first measure on a 79-12 vote, and then approved the second measure on a voice vote.
The measures now go to the House, which must approve them to ensure the government continues to be funded after the end of the current fiscal year at midnight Friday.
The spending proposals contain additional disaster relief money needed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to refill depleted coffers. However, the emergency disaster funding only applies to the new fiscal year beginning Saturday after FEMA indicated that it likely had enough money left to get through the rest of the current fiscal year.
Democrats and Republicans were at an impasse over a GOP demand to cut spending elsewhere to offset any increased disaster relief funding in the current fiscal year.
A FEMA statement Monday said updated estimates showed that the agency’s Disaster Relief Fund has about $114 million left that “could be fully exhausted by the end of the week.” Previous estimates had the money running out as soon as Tuesday or Wednesday.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, said White House budget director Jack Lew told him that FEMA’s funding will last through the rest of the current fiscal year.
Last week, the Republican-led House has passed a short-term spending measure for the first seven weeks of the new fiscal year that includes increased disaster relief funds in the wake of Hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee, wildfires and tornadoes this year.
Under the House measure, called a continuing resolution, FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers would get more disaster relief funds for the end of the current fiscal year and the start of the new fiscal year.
However, Democrats oppose a provision in the House measure that cuts other spending to offset some of the additional emergency aid for the rest of the current fiscal year.
The dispute threatened to prevent the continuing resolution from passing by the end of the fiscal year, which could have caused a partial government shutdown.
If FEMA can make it through the end of week, however, Senate Democrats say they won’t need to include additional disaster relief money for the current fiscal year, avoiding the showdown with House Republicans over whether that spending needs to be offset by cuts elsewhere.
Instead, Senate Democrats will try to pass a “clean” funding measure that would keep the government operating through November 18 without any corresponding spending cuts.
The vote will be in two steps. One measure would extend government funding for one week, through October 4, to ensure that there is no gap when the current fiscal year ends Friday. A second would then continue the extended government funding through November 18.
The two measures are needed because the House is in virtual recess this week with members back in their home districts and the chamber convening in “pro forma” sessions with minimal participation.
Under the plan, the House will be able to approve the shorter of the two measures — to continue funding through October 4 — in a pro forma session this week and then vote on the longer measure when members return the following week.
A senior Senate GOP leadership aide said Senate Republicans would probably go along with such a plan because the need for extra FEMA funding in the current fiscal year would be moot.
House members went home for the week after passing the short-term spending bill on Friday.
If Congress fails to approve a compromise version this week, a partial government shutdown could occur when the fiscal year ends at midnight Friday. It is the third time in six months that legislators have faced such a possibility.
Republicans want less disaster aid than their Democratic counterparts and want to pay for it partly by cutting funding for programs designed to spur clean energy innovation.
Democrats contend that the Republicans are playing politics by seeking to offset disaster relief spending that helps Americans in immediate need of help to put their lives back together.
The House GOP legislation included $3.65 billion in new disaster relief funding: $1 billion in emergency money for the current fiscal year and roughly $2.6 billion to be budgeted for those federal response agencies for the 2012 fiscal year that begins October 1.
Under the House bill, the $1 billion in immediate disaster funding is offset with $1.5 billion in cuts to a loan program that helps automakers retool their operations to make more fuel-efficient cars.
Another $100 million would be cut from an alternative energy loan program that provided funding for the solar panel firm Solyndra, a company that declared bankruptcy late last month despite receiving a $535 million federal guarantee in 2009.
The Senate measures set the new disaster relief funding at $2.65 billion, all in the new fiscal year beginning Saturday, with no offsets.
Last week, the Senate passed a spending bill with bipartisan support that would provide $6.9 billion for FEMA and other federal agencies, to be used for disaster relief both immediately and in the new fiscal year. That Senate version required no spending offsets. – CNN Politics
The company made a pre-tax loss of £697 million ($1.09 billion, 800 million euros) in the six months to the end of June, Lloyd’s said in a results statement, as it was hit by soaring claims.
That compared with a profit of £628 million in the same period of the previous financial year.
“2011 has already been one of the most challenging years on record for the insurance industry with major natural catastrophes devastating communities in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the United States,” said Chairman Lord Levene.
“Lloyd’s ability to pay billions in claims to help these communities rebuild is unquestioned and the fact that we have managed to do so without any call on our central capital reserves is testament to the market’s exposure management.”
The group added that insurance claims so far this year have already exceeded those for the whole of 2010, after Japan’s devastating March 11 earthquake and tsunami which sparked a nuclear crisis.
“To put the figures into perspective, the claims seen so far in 2011 arising from major events have already exceeded the total for 2010 and we have not yet reached the end of the Atlantic hurricane season,” added Levene.

As reported by this ministry just a few days ago, this article serves as confirmation of the Truth:
“The insurance companies will belly up after this year of losses unless the United States government can bail them out. 100% in crop failure claims, and billions in loss payouts for the changing weather patterns that are destined to bring more devastation.
In the past, the insurers have based their losses on past statistics, but can no longer rely on that data. All are nearing the verge of being bankrupt.”
Kenneth A. Froot spends more time thinking about natural disasters than the average business school professor. In addition to the rise and fall of the Dow and the long-term implications of the financial crisis in Greece, he has natural perils—hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and unusually severe European winters—on the brain.
And he thinks you should, too.
Froot, the André R. Jakurski Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, has spent more than 15 years researching how the reinsurance industry—which provides insurance for insurers—manages catastrophic risk. And while he’s seen improvements in the way reinsurers distribute risk over the last two decades, he still questions whether reinsurers in their current form can survive a major catastrophic event.
“Reinsurers assume the risk of, and hold the capital for, those catastrophic events for which insurers are poorly suited,” explains Froot.
A local property-casualty insurance agency can easily hold enough capital to cover losses from house fires or burst pipes; such losses are relatively infrequent and their numbers easy to predict. Natural disasters are a different story: though they occur much less frequently, when they do happen it’s akin to thousands or even tens of thousands of pipes bursting and homes burning all at once. Hurricane Irene, for instance, inflicted an estimated $6.6 billion in insured losses. And they are much harder to predict. Because of this, it becomes very expensive for insurance firms to hold the capital necessary to cover catastrophic losses.
So they turn to reinsurance firms, paying them a fee to assume that risk. Ideally, reinsurers are able to absorb the risk of, say, a hurricane blowing through Vermont, because they have diversified their own risk across the possibility of hurricanes in Vermont, floods in England, and earthquakes in California.
“One relies on the insurance sector to promote risk sharing,” says Froot. “One of the features my research raises is that the level of risk sharing in many instances is very incomplete, very poor.”
Froot examines where insurance companies purchase protection asking, “Do they buy reinsurance contracts for small losses, for in-between losses, for big losses, for gargantuan losses?” Logic dictates that insurers will choose to cover gargantuan losses “because those will wipe you out,” says Froot. – Harvard Business School

September 3, 2011 – WASHINGTON, DC – Nature is pummeling the United States this year with extremes. Unprecedented triple-digit Fahrenheit (38-plus degree Celsius) heat and devastating drought. Deadly tornadoes leveling towns. Massive rivers overflowing. A billion-dollar blizzard. And now, unusual hurricane-caused flooding in the northeastern state of Vermont. If what’s falling from the sky isn’t enough, the ground shook in places that normally seem stable: Colorado and the entire East Coast. On Friday, a strong quake triggered brief tsunami warnings in Alaska. Arizona and New Mexico have broken records for wildfires. Total weather losses top $35 billion, and that’s not counting Hurricane Irene, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. There have been more than 700 U.S. disaster and weather deaths, most from the tornado outbreaks this spring. Last year, the world seemed to go wild with natural disasters in the deadliest year in a generation. But 2010 was bad globally, and the United States mostly was spared. This year, while there have been devastating events elsewhere, such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Australia’s flooding and a drought in Africa, it’s is the United States’ turn to get smacked. “I’m hoping for a break. I’m tired of working this hard. This is ridiculous,” said Jeff Masters, a meteorologist who runs Weather Underground, a meteorology service that tracks strange and extreme weather. “I’m not used to seeing all these extremes all at once in one year.” The U.S. has had a record 10 weather catastrophes costing more than a billion dollars: five separate tornado outbreaks, two different major river floods in the Upper Midwest and the Mississippi River, drought in the Southwest and a blizzard that crippled the Midwest and Northeast, and Irene.
The East Coast got a double-whammy in one week with a magnitude 5.8 earthquake followed by a drenching from Irene. If one place felt more besieged than others, it was tiny Mineral, Virginia, the epicenter of the quake, where Louisa County Fire Lt. Floyd Richard stared at the darkening sky before Irene and said, “What did we do to Mother Nature to come through here like this.” There are still four months to go, including September, the busiest month of the hurricane season. The Gulf Coast expected a soaking this weekend from Tropical Storm Lee and forecasters were watching Hurricane Katia slogging west in the Atlantic. The insurance company Munich Re calculated that in the first six months of the year there have been 98 natural disasters in the United States, about double the average of the 1990s. Even before Irene, the Federal Emergency Management Agency was on pace to obliterate the record for declared disasters issued by state, reflecting both the geographic breadth and frequency of America’s problem-plagued year. “If you weren’t in a drought, you were drowning is what it came down to,” Masters said. Add to that, oppressive and unrelenting heat. Tens of thousands of daily weather records have been broken or tied and nearly 1,000 all-time records set, with most of them heat or rain related. “I think this year has really been extraordinary in terms of natural catastrophes,” said Andreas Schrast, head of catastrophic perils for Swiss Re, another big insurer. One of the most noticeable and troubling weather extremes was the record-high nighttime temperatures, said Tom Karl, director of NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center. That shows that the country wasn’t cooling off at all at night, which both the human body and crops need. “These events are abnormal,” Karl said. “But it’s part of an ongoing trend we’ve seen since 1980.” –Taiwan News

What’s happening, say experts, is mostly random chance or bad luck. But there is something more to it, many of them say. Man-made global warming is increasing the odds of getting a bad roll of the dice.
Sometimes the luck seemed downright freakish.
The East Coast got a double-whammy in one week with a magnitude 5.8 earthquake followed by a drenching from Irene.

Add to that, oppressive and unrelenting heat. Tens of thousands of daily weather records have been broken or tied and nearly 1,000 all-time records set, with most of them heat or rain related:
— Oklahoma set a record for hottest month ever in any state with July.
— Fairbanks, Alaska, hit 97 degrees on July 11, a record.
— Houston had a record string of 24 days in August with the thermometer over 100 degrees.
— Newark, N.J., set a record with 108 degrees, topping the old mark by 3 degrees.
Tornadoes this year hit medium-sized cities such as Joplin, Mo., and Tuscaloosa, Ala. The outbreaks affected 21 states, including unusual deadly twisters in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Massachusetts.
“I think this year has really been extraordinary in terms of natural catastrophes,” said Andreas Schrast, head of catastrophic perils for Swiss Re, another big insurer.
One of the most noticeable and troubling weather extremes was the record-high nighttime temperatures, said Tom Karl, director of NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center. That shows that the country wasn’t cooling off at all at night, which both the human body and crops need.
“These events are abnormal,” Karl said. “But it’s part of an ongoing trend we’ve seen since 1980.”
Individual weather disasters so far can’t be directly attributed to global warming, but it is a factor in the magnitude and the string of many of the extremes, Karl and other climate scientists say.
While the hurricanes and tornado outbreaks don’t seem to have any clear climate change connection, the heat wave and drought do, said NASA climate scientist Gavin Schmidt.
This year, there’s been a Pacific Ocean climate phenomenon that changes weather patterns worldwide known as La Nina, the flip side to El Nino. La Ninas normally trigger certain extremes such as flooding in Australia and drought in Texas. But global warming has taken those events and amplified them from bad to record levels, said climate scientist Jerry Meehl at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
Judith Curry of Georgia Tech disagreed, saying that while humans are changing the climate, these extremes have happened before, pointing to the 1950s.
“Sometimes it seems as if we have weather amnesia,” she said.
Another factor is that people are building bigger homes and living in more vulnerable places such as coastal regions, said Swiss Re’s Schrast. Worldwide insured losses from disasters in the first three months this year are more than any entire year on record except for 2005, when Hurricane Katrina struck, Schrast said.
Unlike last year, when many of the disasters were in poor countries such as Haiti and Pakistan, this year’s catastrophes have struck richer areas, including Australia, Japan and the United States.
The problem is so big that insurers, emergency managers, public officials and academics from around the world are gathering Wednesday in Washington for a special three-day National Academy of Sciences summit to figure out how to better understand and manage extreme events.
The idea is that these events keep happening, and with global warming they should occur more often, so society has to learn to adapt, said former astronaut Kathryn Sullivan, NOAA’s deputy chief.
Sullivan, a scientist, said launching into space gave her a unique perspective on Earth’s “extraordinary scale and power and both extraordinary elegance and finesse.”
“We are part of it. We do affect it,” Sullivan said. “But it surely affects us on a daily basis — sometimes with very powerful punches.” – Yahoo.com

Hurricane Katia continued marching generally toward the U.S. coastline on Friday afternoon and, despite temporarily lapsing into a tropical storm, still is expected to intensify over the next five days into a category 2 system.
While forecasters say it’s still too early to say whether Katia poses a serious threat to any coastal areas, the projected path steadily has been bending in the general direction of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.
Despite that trend, computer models continue to insist the system might turn north in time to miss the U.S. coast altogether and potentially threaten Bermuda, Canada or turn out to sea.
“Right now, we don’t know what if any impacts from Katia will be felt along the U.S. East Coast,” said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hurricane Center in Miami-Dade County. “We have plenty of time to watch it.”
At 5 p.m. on Friday, Katia was in the Atlantic about 630 miles east of the Leeward Islands, moving northwest at 12 mph with sustained winds of 75 mph.
A more immediate threat to the U.S. coast: Tropical Storm Lee emerged in the Gulf of Mexico on Friday and is projected to hit the Louisiana coast nearNew Orleans on Sunday with sustained winds of 65 mph, or close to hurricane strength.
That system threatens to produce up to 20 inches of rain in southern Louisiana,Mississippi and Alabama, and the region already was feeling downpours from its fringes on Friday.
It also could generate a storm surge of up to 4 feet above ground level. A tropical storm warning has been posted for the Louisiana and Mississippi coasts. At 8 p.m. on Friday, Lee was about 180 miles southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River. It was crawling north at 3 mph.
Katia is expected to churn northwest over the next five days, guided by high pressure north of its path. Then a low-pressure area over the United States might weaken the high pressure and allow the system to turn north.
The timing of that turn likely will determine whether Katia hits, brushes or misses the U.S. coast.
Under the latest forecast track, Katia would to move north of the Leeward Islands on Monday, about 1,000 miles due east of Miami on Tuesday and about 700 miles east of Daytona Beach on Wednesday.
At the same time, Katia is expected to steadily bulk up over the next week to category 2 status with sustained winds of 110 mph.
However, despite returning to hurricane strength on Friday, the system was under heavy attack from wind shear, the same force that weakened it back into a tropical storm on Thursday. The overall intensity forecast has been reduced, as it earlier had been forecast to reach category 3 strength with 120 mph winds.
The hurricane center also is tracking a low-pressure system in the Atlantic about 300 miles south of Halifax, Canada, giving it a low chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm. The system is moving northeast and likely poses no serious threat to land. – Chicago Tribune
Earthquakes. Tornadoes. Sheer wind, hail and lightning. Volcanic eruptions. Hurricanes, Tsunami and tidal waves. All of Father’s arsenal is now aimed at this planet’s inhabitants.
It is Father as nature’s source of destruction and as Moses did centuries ago, we make you aware that Father is angry.
The storm’s winds increased to 45 miles (72 kilometers) per hour from 40 mph earlier today as it churned across the Atlantic about 630 miles west-southwest of Cape Verde, according to a center advisory issued at about 11 a.m. New York time.
“Continued gradual strengthening is forecast and Katia is expected to become a hurricane by late Wednesday or early Thursday,” the center said. Its current track and intensity forecasts have the storm growing into a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson five-step scale.
Computer forecast models suggest Katia will turn into the Northern Atlantic, a maneuver meteorologists refer to as recurving. The move would mean Katia would miss the U.S., which was struck last weekend by Hurricane Irene, a storm that killed at least 40, cut power to 8 million homes and businesses and caused an estimated $2.6 billion in damage.
“Katia is way, way, way out there,” said Tom Downs, a meteorologist with Weather 2000 Inc. in New York. “It is premature to discuss where it is going, but things suggest it will recurve. Five days from now we will have a better idea.”
Downs said the key will be if Katia drifts to the northwest as it moves across the ocean. Such a track would suggest the storm would eventually take a turn and miss the U.S., he said. A more westerly track might mean trouble, he said. – Bloomburg
Texas, and some other key targets are in line for a wave of upheaval. This month is the 8th month of this year. The 8 represents Yahweh as Infinity. She will close this month out with devastation.
Scientists worldwide are forecasting severe drought, unprecedented flooding, and scorching heat waves as a result of climate change. One thing that’s often overlooked in these discussions, however, is the effect that climate change may have on our mental health. But researchers in Australia have just published a report, A Climate of Suffering: The Real Cost of Living with Inaction on Climate Change, that gives us some new clues. Here, a brief guide to this research:
How could climate change affect our sanity?
First, natural disasters like hurricanes and floods have a profound impact on individual suffering. As a result of these disasters, as many as one in five people could suffer from anxiety, depression, suicide, domestic violence, or substance abuse, say the report’s authors. Months after tropical cyclone Larry struck Australia in 2006, for example, more than one in 10 primary school children reported symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). And in some rural Australian communities, the suicide rate has jumped by 8 percent since a massive drought took hold several years ago.
What other impacts are expected?
For years-long disasters, researchers have observed the long-term collapse of community solidarity. For instance, during and after events like the prolonged drought that has gripped Australia for more than a decade, there’s “a breakdown of social cohesion caused by loss of work and associated stability,” says Erik Jensen in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Who is most vulnerable to these problems?
Children are particularly susceptible to mental health issues like pre-disaster anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. And the long-term mental health effects of climate change are likely to be felt strongest inpoorer countries and in rural areas within industrialized nations, the study finds, since these places have the least access to mental health services.
Aren’t natural disasters like hurricanes and droughts normal?
Yes, but not with the intensity and frequency many areas of the world are now seeing. ”While cyclones, drought, bushfires [wildfires], and floods are all a normal part of Australian life, there is no doubt our climate is changing,” say the report’s authors. ”For instance, the intensity and frequency of bushfires is greater. This is a ‘new normal’, for which the past provides little guidance.” – The Week
Yes, the climate is changing – but it’s at the same time much more than just “climate change”, as many would hope and expect us to believe. Extreme weather has become the norm because we are currently in the Tribulation, and have been now for several years. And Yahweh, who is also Mother Nature, delivers Her messages via Her nature. We are a world under judgment – every nation on the planet – and Yahweh will continue to deliver Her wrath until the time Armageddon begins. Father is moving this world of people towards all out anarchy as the Wrath grows near for execution of His vengeance upon those that will be left behind in this world.
The first half of 2011 saw thousands of lives lost to natural disasters and made it the most expensive on record in terms of property damage.
In January, earthquakes hit Argentina, Chile, Iran, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Tonga. In February, they hit Burma, the Pacific Islands and the big one, in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The quake struck at midday. Buildings were toppled. Scores were buried under rubble and 181 died. Survivors who crawled from collapsed office buildings were stunned.
One woman who appeared dazed, said of her office building, “It just came down. Like, right down.”
The monster earthquake of 2011 in Japan was like something out of a science fiction movie. From 20 miles under the surface of the Pacific, the quake created a wall of water 130 feet high that traveled six miles inland, causing cars and boats to bob like toys.
It was a quake so powerful it moved the island of Honshu eight feet. More than 15,000 people died and nearly 5,000 are still missing.
Then in a terrible twist, after the quake knocked out power at the Fukushima nuclear plant, the tsunami washed out its backup generators, the last line of defense against overheating. It would be the world’s first triple meltdown, spreading radiation over a wide area.
It was the worst disaster to afflict Japan since World War II.
U.S. Tornado Outbreak
The world was still in shock when the southern and eastern United States experienced the worst rash of tornadoes in recorded weather history. The 2011 “Super Outbreak” included four EF-5 tornadoes, and led to almost 350 deaths and more than $6 billion in insured losses.
Then just weeks later on a Sunday afternoon in May, a mile-wide multiple vortex EF-5 tornado plowed through Joplin, Mo., obliterating parts of the city, killing 159 people and causing an estimated $2 billion in insured losses.
The insurance industry was left reeling. Americans were in shock.
Vinson Synan, author of 19 books and the dean emeritus at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va., says the unprecedented string of calamities is forcing many Americans to ask, ‘Why?’
“It’s a sobering thing, for even natural man to face up to natural disasters that don’t make any sense at all. And to hit randomly in the world, and may hit you,” Synan said. “And the question, in the back of their minds — ‘What does this mean?’”
“So I think it brings people to question the ultimate end of everything,” he explained.
And unfortunately, the world’s worst disasters could still be ahead, like a category five hurricane making a direct hit on a large American city.
Disaster Scenarios Studied
Experts have studied other disaster scenarios that many Americans do not know about.
For example, geologists have warned that heavy rains on Mount Rainer in Washington State could cause a deadly 40-mile mudslide moving at 60 mph, filled with rocks and trees.
Some fear the collapse of the giant volcanic mountain Cumbre Vieja in the Canary Islands could send an 80-foot high tsunami slamming into the east coast of the United States at 600 mph.
And along the Mississippi, a catastrophic quake at the giant new Madrid fault would cause utter devastation to America’s heartland, changing the course of the mighty Mississippi, and causing the ground to roll like the ocean, as it did in 1811 and 1812.
Many Americans might think they live in one of the safest periods in world history. But do they? Why have so many natural disasters struck the planet this year, and what does it mean?
“It brings people to question the ultimate end of everything. Even the natural man who doesn’t even know God, is saying ‘Something bad is happening,’ ‘It’s getting worse and worse,’” Synan told CBN News.
“What are the ultimate reasons for this? What’s the ultimate answer from God or from somewhere?,’” he asked. – CBN
It is Father as Nature’s SOURCE of destruction. Father is angry and His holy angels are pouring out the bowls of wrath on an evil world of people. Keep count of how many more are perishing by Father’s hand, and those dying from Satan’s hand in causing violence throughout this planet, just as he did before the global flood.
Matthew 24:3-8 “Signs of the End of the Age”
“While He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached Him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what is the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Then Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these events are the beginning of birth pains.”
With hurricane season still ahead, a record-tying nine $1 billion weather disasters have already racked the nation this year, federal, state and private forecasters reported Wednesday. Following on the heels of the 60-mph wind gusts that collapsed a stage and killed five at the Indiana State Fair on Saturday, the National Weather Service estimates that weather disasters have cost more than $35 billion this year, based on insurance estimates. Recent flooding in the Midwest along the Missouri and Souris rivers topped the $2 billion damage mark.
“The nation is increasingly vulnerable to extreme weather,” National Weather Service Director Jack Hayes says. The year has been marked by floods, drought and tornadoes, such as the May twister that killed 160 people in Joplin, Mo. Meanwhile, a Texas heat wave has cost $5.2 billion in crop and livestock losses so far “It doesn’t take a wizard to predict that 2011 will go down in history,” Hayes says.
Nationwide, the number of natural disasters has tripled in the last two decades, according to insurance firm Munich Reinsurance America. Thunderstorm losses since 1980 have become five times more severe, on average. There were $20 billion in such losses by midyear in 2011, doubling the average of the past three years.
Part of the federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Weather Service will partner with local emergency managers and weather forecasters to ensure the U.S. is a “Weather-Ready Nation,” Hayes announced. The agencies will begin with nine pilot projects around the country aimed at improving disaster warnings to the public that include:
•Testing a new emergency warning system in Charleston, W.Va., that will improve “severe” weather warnings from a half-hour to three hours ahead.
•Installing National Weather Service experts directly in emergency management centers in Fort Worth and Silver Spring, Md.
•Adding newly trained hurricane and coastal safety experts to an emergency management center in New Orleans.
“We want to try to get every community in the USA storm-ready,” said International Association of Emergency Managers USA President Eddie Hicks, who heads the Alabama Emergency Management Agency. Discussing the Indiana stage collapse, Hicks called for improved social-media tools to text message warnings to people about weather dangers.
With roughly half of the U.S. population of 311 million living close to the nation’s coasts, and economic growth in Southern states hit hard by the tornadoes and flooding this year, Hayes says the nation faces an increasing risk from extreme weather simply because of demographics.
The old record-setting year for nine billion-dollar U.S. weather disasters was hit in 2008, according to National Climatic Data Center records. The center adds up disaster costs using insurer, state and federal agency records going back to 1980.
With NOAA forecasting an “above-normal” hurricane season — seven to 10 hurricanes — after three years without one hitting land on the East Coast, “I’m very worried about complacency,” Hayes says. “We want people taking steps now to be ready for extreme weather.” – GhanaWord
The LOZ (Lions of Zion, Yahweh’s Elite Warriors) has been successful in that they have been primarily causing collateral damage verses the loss of life. Adding to the monetary loss of this country’s treasury. This being Satan’s throne of authority, the LOZ is nudging him toward his new seat of rulership as he realizes he cannot sustain this country due to the ever mounting debt. The infrastructure – aging bridges, buildings, dams, etc., this all is set for a crumbling-to-ground effect when the LOZ launches its campaign to tremor the fault lines in the USA. That will bring forth the final demise of the already debt ridden nation. They will continue to apply pressure to Satan”s new ruling authority, making it rough water for him to effectively serve as the Antichrist. His unwillingness to relinquish power over his prized child brings with it ramifications he did not expect.

The eminent threat to Mankind is not Al-Qaeta or any human source; nor is it a threat of alien invasion from another galaxy. The threat is from our Creator, Yahweh. It’s a real threat that will soon become a reality as this planet moves from the Tribulation period to that of Father’s wrath – Her anger, Armageddon. How will Yahweh’s forces come to execute the long awaited Judgment?
1 Thessalonians 5:2, 3 “For you yourselves know very well that the Day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. When they say, “Peace and security,” then sudden destruction comes on them, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”
On the day Armageddon starts it will come unexpectedly.
Romans 9:22 “And what if God, desiring to display His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience objects of wrath ready for destruction?”
Father’s patience is finally running out.
The Beast already knows that the rapture and invasion at Armageddon will happen and they have already created a plan to try and convince those who witness this event that it is in fact NOT of God. This is the second step in NASA’s Project Blue Beam. When the first Rapture occurs, they will tell those that were left behind that it was just a gigantic “Space show” with three-dimensional optical hologram and sounds, laser projection and multiple holographic images to different parts of the world. In essence they will say that the sky was just a huge movie screen and the entire event was in fact orchestrated…or… they will attempt to introduce a new “messiah”. Anything is really possible… as Project Blue Beam will pretend to be the universal fulfillment of the prophecies of old, but, how will they explain the millions upon millions of children and adults who didn’t in fact just disappear, but who have left their physical bodies behind? No doubt they will invent some mysterious virus or plague and use that as an excuse. The thing to remember is that The Beast will Deceive.
Solar Flare Strength + Lunar Blocking of Solar Wind = Massive Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions, Bitter Cold
While my knowledge is far from superior on this matter from the readings and research I have done of Piers Corbyn’s work, Astrophysicist and Meteorologist from http://www.weatheraction.com and Joe Bastardi from http://www.weatherbell.com, both are very confident on increasing geological events. Corbyn is so confident he is warning of a large, substantial earthquake and potential volcanic eruption taking place in the next few days. As a relative novice, I have been promoting for nearly 3 years a stronger signal for greater earthquakes and more active volcanoes but I needed a strong foundation to support my ideas. Again, my relative lack of knowledge has kept me searching for answers and researching for potential factors that have led me to this theory. In addition to reading many reports from many sources, especially Corbyn and Bastardi.
The volcanoes are focused more in the Arctic regions and the earthquakes speak for themselves. Some proclaim that earthquakes happen all the time across the Pacific Rim and they would be correct but the strength is what matters. As some know, the sun is the chief driver of weather and geological processes on Earth. Fluctuations of solar intensity and solar wind can really throw the magnetism out of whack creating a stronger tendency for powerful quakes. The Haitian earthquake early in 2010, which at the beginning was probably ignored as just another earthquake, might have been the beginning signal of this pattern. Look at the Chilean temblor, then the catastrophic Japanese jolt, and now over in the area of New Zealand with several powerful 6 and 7 Richter scale shakers; this is not normal. I do not see this type of pattern ending anytime soon.
The sun has been relatively quiet over the last few years but the sun still makes sure we know it is ruler of all universe but the scary thing is I believe it is on its last legs before going dormant for several decades. Many scientists, especially Russian scientists, have predicted for nearly 4 decades that the sun would likely go quiet in the 2010-2020 time frame. Some have even pushed this time up to 2015. When that happens the lack of magnetic balance will likely increase earthquakes even further. At the same time, this should enhance volcanic activity, as well. A lot of eerie and potentially catastrophic processes are pending over the next handful of years but the ironic part of all of this, it has all happened before and will happen again long after we are gone. This is not some new geological event but the next cycle of ramped up activity. – MyWeatherTech.com
The death toll of humankind has been, and will continue to steadily mount from unnatural causes. The source of this happening to the greatest number comes from the hand of God. Earthquakes. Tornadoes. Sheer wind, hail and lightning. Volcanic eruptions. Hurricanes, Tsunami, Solar Flares, and tidal waves – all of Father’s arsenal is now aimed at this planet’s inhabitants.
It is Father as Nature’s SOURCE of destruction. Father is angry and His holy angels are pouring out the bowls of wrath on an evil world of people. Keep count of how many more are perishing by Father’s hand, and those dying from Satan’s hand in causing violence throughout this planet, just as he did before the global flood.
As time moves on the numbers Father executes will be evident by those that are soon to perish by the emptying of more wrath from the bowls. You must come to understand that the destruction is coming from Father. It is a final warning during the tribulation period before the door closes and the cup of wrath is administered. If some believe it is only nature that is bringing devastation, then they need to understand who nature is a part of, and who uses it to bring forth Her will. The bowls of wrath represent nature at its deadliest. The cup of wrath represents execution by holy angelic warriors.
Blue-Green Algae in Russia According to the water samples collected by the City of Helsinki Environment Centre, poisonous blue-green algae is present on most public beaches in Helsinki. The amounts of blue-green algae have mostly remained small, while in some places the occurences of algae have been abundant. Occasionally, plenty of blue-green algae has been detected in Lauttasaari Kasinoranta, Mustikkamaa, Tuorinniemi, Kallahdenniemi, and Kallahden kainalo beaches. At the same time, very few algae observations have been made at the beaches along the Vantaa River.
Fish Rotting in Morocco Since mid-June, thousands of dead fish have been rotting along the banks of the Moulouya River, in north-east Morocco. While tests are being carried out to establish the cause of death, environmental activists are blaming a local sugar refinery that they accuse of “environmental crimes.” After residents notified local environmental groups of the situation, these groups formed a collective called the “North Moroccan Green Platform” to shed light on the problem. The collective points out that the river’s estuary is classified as a protected site of biological and ecological interest, and that its fauna risks extinction. In Oriental, a north-eastern region of Morocco, dead fish litter the river’s shores for dozens of kilometres, as several videos show. The environmentalists put the blame on the sugar refinery Sucrafor.
Outbreak of meningococcal disease in New Zealand One university student is dead and a second is in hospital after an outbreak of meningococcal disease in the north Queensland city of Townsville. An 18-year-old medical student was found dead in his bedroom at James Cook University on Wednesday. The Dean of Medicine and Dentistry, Professor Richard Murray, says the student was from Western Australia and was planning a career in humanitarian medicine. He says a memorial service was held yesterday. “This is a fine, very talented and widely admired and liked young man,” he said. Another medical student from the college has also tested positive for the infection. Meningococcal invades the area around the brainstem and spinal cord and can also cause blood poisoning.
Legionnaire’s Outbreak in Spain The Valencia health department has confirmed that a 95 year old woman who was ill from Legionnaire’s Disease has died in a hospital in Alcoy. Department sources quoted by EFE said she had tested positive for the Legionella bacterium, but said she had other health conditions and it could not be certain that legionellosis was the cause of her death. A second case of Legionnaire’s Disease in the town is under treatment at the Virgen de Los Lirios Hospital and is in a stable condition. The health department has described them as two isolated cases. It comes after 10 cases were detected in Alcàsser, in the south of Valencia province, last Friday. Another two were reported in nearby Silla on Monday.
Measles Outbreak in Auckland An outbreak of measles has been confirmed in the Waikato, a month after a large measles outbreak in Auckland. The outbreak appears to be centred on Te Awamutu and surrounding communities, and while a number of young people have become ill the source of infection is at this stage unknown. The outbreak appears to have started around a week ago, and Medical Officer of Health Dr Dell Hood says more cases are likely. The incubation period for measles is usually 10-12 days. Measles symptoms include a runny nose, fever, cough, sore eyes and generally feeling unwell. Anyone who thinks their child may have measles should consult their family doctor or Healthline. An outbreak in June in Auckland saw the number of cases rise to 39.
Rubella Outbreak in Fiji Report to the nearest medical centre if symptoms of fever and body rash appear, warns the Ministry of Health. There is a rubella outbreak with 3 reported cases in the greater Suva area, as confirmed by Health Ministry spokesman Peni Namotu. Dr Francis Bingwor of the National Adviser Family Health said the Ministry intervened to raise awareness after it received reports of 2 females and a male aged between 19 and 24 years who developed symptoms of rubella at the Fiji School of Nursing. There are suspected cases for other areas like Samabula, she added Dr Bingwor is calling on parents to take precautions and get babies vaccinated against the disease to prevent them from contracting rubella from adults suspected of being affected. “Rubella is a vaccination preventable disease which can be prevented if children, both boys and girls, get vaccinated against it,” she said.
Food Poisoning Outbreak in Turkey Almost 100 Russian tourists have received medical assistance after suspected food poisoning in the Turkish resort city of Alanya, officials said on Wednesday. Russia’s tourist watchdog said 98 tourists had been poisoned and that eight remained in hospital. The tourists were all staying at the Club Gunes Garden hotel. Turkish health officials have taken samples of the hotel’s food and drinks. Five Russian tourists died in Turkey’s Bodrum in late May after drinking bootleg whiskey on a sailing trip organized by a local company.
Jelly Fish Plague in British Virgin Islands The Ministry of Natural Resources and Labour and the Conservation and Fisheries Department are asking snorkelers, dive operators and other sea goers to exercise caution while at sea as the Box Jelly Fish was sighted in local waters. Box Jelly Fish also known as Sea Wasps are a blue or transparent coloured marine stinger which makes them difficult to detect in water. The bell-shaped jellyfish delivers a painful, venomous sting from its long tentacles which can drift up to several feet behind its body.Confirmed sightings were reported yesterday along the southern chain of islands which include North Sound Virgin Gorda, Cooper and Norman Islands. The sightings were also confirmed in deep water snorkelling areas, not near the shore. No reports from Tortola, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke were received by the Conservation and Fisheries Department. Marine Biologist with the Conservation and Fisheries Department Ms. Shannon Gore wants persons to be aware and prepared, in the event of contact with the Sea Wasp. “The stings are very painful. If stung, persons should rinse the area with vinegar to neutralize the firing cells and remove any remaining tentacles.
Mumps Outbreak in Toronto Health authorities in Toronto say they have now confirmed nine cases of mumps associated with a recent outbreak — as well as three suspected cases. In a normal year the city only gets, on average, about 15 cases. According to Toronto Public Health, all of the cases are linked to Ki Restaurant at 181 Bay Street in the city’s financial district. On Saturday TPH said it was investigating four cases of mumps and that all of those affected were restaurant employees. On Tuesday the number of confirmed cases jumped to nine: eight cases are employees at the restaurant and the ninth is someone who came into contact with one of those employees. Three other cases are under investigation: one employee and two restaurant patrons. – RSOE EDIS
Luke 17:26-30 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the Day when the Son of Man is revealed.”
“Christ was revealing that just as they took no note worthy view of the warnings back in those days of judgment, neither will they do so in these last days of this age. The end will come as a thief in the night to them because they will not heed the healthful urgency of what is about to happen. I know from my own personal experience with Noah that he was laughed and scoffed at like he was a simple minded idiot for even suggesting that the earth could be flooded. You will also be treated in a like fashion by the majority. But fear of dying at Armageddon will not be enough to save a person. They must be sincere in why they seek Father. Otherwise, Christ will still bar them from the kindness of Salvation. He is permitted to judge their true heart conditions.” – Commander Jaddai, Cherubic Order of Holy Angels
This is a chilling article and we reexamine what was written some 7 years ago, in 2004, in light of recent earthchanges. Here’s the UK article in part that appeared in the Guardian: Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters. A secret report, suppressed by US defense chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world. The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism; say the few experts privy to its contents. ‘Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,’ concludes the Pentagon analysis. ‘Once again, warfare would define human life.’ The findings will prove humiliating to the Bush administration, which has repeatedly denied that climate change even exists. Experts said that they will also make unsettling reading for a President who has insisted national defense is a priority. The report was commissioned by influential Pentagon defense adviser Andrew Marshall, who has held considerable sway on US military thinking over the past three decades. He was the man behind a sweeping recent review aimed at transforming the American military under Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Climate change ‘should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern’, say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network. An imminent scenario of catastrophic climate change is ‘plausible and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately’, they conclude. As early as next year, widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions. Already, according to Randall and Schwartz, the planet is carrying a higher population than it can sustain. By 2020 ‘catastrophic’ shortages of water and energy supply will become increasingly harder to overcome, plunging the planet into war. They warn that 8,200 years ago climatic conditions brought widespread crop failure, famine, disease and mass migration of populations that could soon be repeated. Randall told The Observer that the potential ramifications of rapid climate change would create global chaos. ‘This is depressing stuff,’ he said. ‘It is a national security threat that is unique because there is no enemy to point your guns at and we have no control over the threat.’ Randall added that it was already possibly too late to prevent a disaster happening. ‘We don’t know exactly where we are in the process. It could start tomorrow and we would not know for another five years,’ he said. –Guardian UK, February 22, 2004
2006 Spooks episode Aftermath: When a North Sea tidal surge threatens to flood London, an eco-terror group, Divine Earth take control of the Thames Barrier, rig it with explosives and threaten to blow it unless the government publishes a report called, “Aftermath,” which states that the since the world cannot prevent the ensuing catastrophes that will happen as a result of climate change, it would instead develop strategies to benefit from their aftermath by Britain and America militarily positioning themselves to control the world’s remaining resources before the crisis engulfed the Earth.
Do any of you really believe that the nations, those world governments now in power, do not know what is really going on? Yahweh has already twice given them an opportunity to raise the white flag but the deadline to do so has come and gone. Father will continue with Her Plan to destroy all nations that resist Her Son’s Sovereign Authority as Ruling King of Her creation.
Complacency is baked into our species. We can’t resist thinking that recent experience defines the future. Give us a run of good luck, and we are apt to turn that into an implicit expectation that our luck will continue — even that we are entitled to it.
This kind of thinking was instrumental in the run-up to the financial crash of 2008. Too many private and public institutions assumed that an extraordinary run in prosperity, particularly in the real estate market, was just normal. It didn’t occur to them that things could go so wrong. Even when token stress testing or risk assessment was done, it largely excluded the possibility of a bad shock or a protracted slump. Risk wasn’t systematically measured; it was ignored.
It’s easy to write this off to greed or foolishness on the part of Wall Street. But the truth is, our entire civilization rests on a foundation just as shaky. We assume that the very Earth is static and will always be as it is now, or as we remember it.
Yet geophysics tells us that is emphatically not the case. Bad things happen. In the past couple of years alone, we have witnessed a litany of horrific natural disasters. Early last year, Haiti, already one of the most impoverished places in the world, was slammed by a magnitude 7 earthquake that caused hundreds of thousands of deaths, both directly and as the result of a cholera epidemic that occurred 10 months later during the recovery effort.
In Iceland last year, a long-dormant volcano erupted, necessitating the cancellation of more than 100,000 flights, and causing an estimated $1.8 billion in losses across Europe (but no deaths). Just a few months ago, Japan was savaged by the fourth-most-powerful earthquake ever caught on seismographs and an ensuing tsunami that killed more than 15,000 people, brought down almost 200,000 buildings and (unfairly) tarnished the image of nuclear energy worldwide. This was only seven years after a tsunami in the Indian Ocean killed at least a quarter-million people.
When the Earth itself isn’t tormenting us, the weather is. Within the past few months, the U.S. has been wracked by drought, wildfires and record-breaking flooding and tornadoes; the damage bill will total more than $32 billion. Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Joplin, Missouri; and, more surprisingly, Monson, Massachusetts, were flattened by tornadoes, which have taken more American lives this tornado season than in any year since 1927.
A Restive Earth
What’s behind all this terrestrial unrest? The answer may not be comforting, but it is simple: A run of bad events like this is completely normal. Nature contains many phenomena that are usually benign but sometimes turn vicious. The probability that really bad things will happen is low — but it isn’t zero. Its rarity only lulls people into a false sense of security.
Is a run of bad events completely normal? Do you believe that what is occurring in the world is just the earth taking its natural course? Or perhaps Global Warming? HAARP, maybe?
Or do you understand that God IS nature and that He uses nature as His arsenal against the wicked? Yahweh is speaking through His Powerful Right Arm via His natural arsenal – Nature.
June 23, 2011 –WASHINGTON — Everything has its price, even the weather. New research indicates that routine weather events such as rain and cooler-than-average days can add up to an annual economic impact of as much as $485 billion in the United States. The study, led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), found that finance, manufacturing, agriculture, and every other sector of the economy is sensitive to changes in the weather. The impacts can be felt in every state. “It’s clear that our economy isn’t weatherproof,” says NCAR economist Jeffrey Lazo, the lead author. “Even routine changes in the weather can add up to substantial impacts on the U.S. economy.” This is the first study to apply quantitative economic analysis to estimate the weather sensitivity of the entire U.S. economy. The research could help policymakers determine whether it is worthwhile to invest in enhanced forecasts and other strategies that could better protect economic activity from weather impacts. The authors caution that the study should be viewed as an initial estimate, which they plan to refine in subsequent research. Lazo and his colleagues did not calculate additional costs associated with extreme weather events, such as this year’s tornado outbreaks, since data on extreme events were not available for the time period covered by their economic model. Nor did they evaluate the possible impacts of climate change, which is expected to lead to more flooding, heat waves, and other costly weather events. Still, the study concludes that the influence of routine weather variations on the economy is as much as 3.4 percent of U.S. gross domestic product.
Shared with this Ministry in April, 2011: The LOZ is primarily causing collateral damage verses the loss of life. Adding to the monetary loss of this country’s treasury. This being Satan’s throne of authority, the LOZ is nudging him toward his new seat of rulership as he realizes he cannot sustain this country due to the ever mounting debt. The infrastructure – aging bridges, buildings, dams, etc., this all is set for a crumbling-to-ground effect when the LOZ launches its campaign to tremor the fault lines in the USA. That will bring forth the final demise of the already debt ridden nation. Michael has ordered that the LOZ will not pull back in the 5th month, but will instead continue to apply pressure to Satan”s new ruling authority, making it rough water for him to effectively serve as the Antichrist. His unwillingness to relinquish power over his prized child brings with it ramifications he did not expect.
In the winter, there was the record snowfall across the Northeast. Record rainfall and floods in Ohio Valley followed in April and May. The Southwest has been plagued by drought for months, while tornadoes have devastated the Midwest and South. Record heat is scorching most of the country this week — just days after snow fell in Hawaii. Meteorologists predict a harrowing hurricane season.
Is some underlying climactic condition driving these extreme weather events? There are two potential candidates: The first is La Niña, trade winds that blow through every five years, cooling the water of the equatorial Pacific Ocean and shifting the jet stream northwest. The second is global warming, the average worldwide temperature increase of 1 to 2 degrees Fahrenheit over the past century that has resulted from the dramatic rise of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
La Niña and global warming are both partly responsible for some of the episodes of wild weather, experts say. However, natural atmospheric variability has also come into play this year; to some extent, the pile-on of wild weather is random chance.
The “experts” fail to see a third possibility – that being Yahweh’s wrath that brings the calamities via wild weather and natural disasters upon the nations.
The land of Israel is Her reality we exist within. And to the nations of 2011:
Jeremiah 28:16 “Therefore, this is what the LORD says: ‘I am about to send you off the face of the earth. You will die this year because you have spoken rebellion against the LORD. ‘ ”
Unless you are raptured away from the earth, you would share in being swept away, just like Lot was warned when he was ushered away to safety by the holy angels whom took him by the hand and led him and his family away from the coming Wrath. Lot’s wife perished, because she was not obedient to Yahweh’s command.
Genesis 19:15 “At the crack of dawn the angels urged Lot on: “Get up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city.”
The debris-filled funnel cloud roared through the city, one of the state’s biggest, at around 4.45pm, felling trees and damaging buildings before heading east.
There were reports of residents trapped in houses, roofs ripped off and some injuries, but further details have yet to emerge.
It came as forecasters issued a tornado watch all along the East Coast, from Maine to Pennsylvania and including New York, Boston and Philadelphia.
And there was a grim warning for New Yorkers after a storm expert warned the city was one of five long overdue a hurricane, as the season began today.
The National Grid reported about 22,600 homes were without power, primarily in the Greater Springfield area, after winds brought down power lines.
Witnesses also called police saying they had seen tornadoes in nearby Wilbraham and Agawam.
Thomas Walsh, a spokesman for Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno, said he was looking out of his window at City Hall at around 4.30pm when he saw the funnel.
‘The Day of the Lord
1 About the times and the seasons: brothers, you do not need anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know very well that the Day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. 3 When they say, “Peace and security,” then sudden destruction comes on them, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. ”
“He changes the times and seasons;” TIME and SEASONS.
Daniel 2:21 “He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
Daniel 2:22 ” He reveals the deep and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.”
“He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
”He removes kings and establishes kings.” How does Yahweh do that? She crushes them as stated at Daniel 2:44. How?
Joel 2:7 “They attack as warriors [attack]; they scale walls as men of war [do]. Each goes on his own path, and they do not change their course.”
The survey of 108 members of the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China said 94 percent believed Chinese reporting conditions had worsened over the past year, with some citing increasing official pressure.
A spokeswoman for the foreign ministry — which handles relations with overseas media members residing in China — rejected the findings, telling a regular press briefing that freedom of reporting had “expanded”.
However, 70 percent of survey respondents said they experienced “interference, harassment and/or violence in the past year.”
Another 40 percent reported that some of their Chinese sources had been “harassed, detained, called in for questioning or otherwise suffered negative consequences for interacting with foreign journalists.”
“In 14 years reporting in China this is by far the most violent period,” one respondent was quoted as saying in the results, which were emailed to members.
“The nature of physical harassment is much worse. Across the board, uniform and plainclothes police, local authorities and even private citizens now feel it is possible to prevent foreign reporters from doing their work.”
Those of you that are double-minded, inclined to think you are of Christ because you believe what you have been taught as tradition, though you see the nature on this planet causing havoc, and Yahweh is NATURE – you are inclined to shadow your mind with darkness in your way of thinking “I’m not evil. God will not destroy me.” But you are forgetting that Satan also believes he is not evil, and so you prove yourselves to be his children because your minds share a common belief that is a LIE.
James 4:8 “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners, and purify your hearts, double-minded people!”
Can you draw near before it’s to late? Yahweh is progressively revealing that She is the Source of what this world is presently experiencing in TRIBULATION. No one is here to force you to accept the TRUTH. That must come from within your own logic and be embedded within your heart, that Yahweh is dead serious about removing everyone and everything that has Satan’s footprint upon it. If you think that you are not under foot, then continue on with your belief. That is your right given to you by Yahweh as a freewill creation. But if you truly desire to walk in the light:
1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
Otherwise, you will be part of what is being cleansed away, because you remain in sin, and that is being removed from creation.
