“Brian Williams:  And now let’s bring it back here at the scene of last years’s huge environmental disaster in this country, well, it’s back in the news tonight — fresh signs of oil in the waters off Louisiana.  The first reports started to surface along with a sheen on the water over the weekend, now there’s more evidence and a bigger response, and a search for the culprit …”

Black Smoke Coming from Fukushima Reactor No. 3 with Deadly MOX Fuel, Tokyo Fears Contamination

03/23/2011 Leave a comment

A neutron beam was observed at least 13 times, and now word that black smoke was coming out of Fukushima reactor no. 3 today.  This is the reactor filled with MOX fuel.  That means plutonium.  It doesn’t look like this problem is going away any time soon.

“High levels of radiation have reached Tokyo following the accident at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant. People in the capital have been told not to drink tap water. The country’s struggle to resolve its nuclear crisis has again been stalled, with workers at the Fukushima plant evacuated after black smoke emerged from one of its reactors. RT’s Igor Ogorodnev is in the Japanese capital for us.”

“(CNN) — An outbreak of the H1N1 virus, known commonly as the swine flu, has hit the Venezuelan Andean state of Merida, the country’s health minister said, the state-run AVN news agency reported.

More than 100 cases of H1N1 have been recorded in Venezuela as of Tuesday, Eugenia Sader said.

In Merida alone there are 56 cases which have tested positive for the virus, and special precautions have been put in place in that state, AVN reported.

Classes in Merida have been canceled for five days, and a ban has been placed on events at night clubs and other closed-in venues, the agency reported.”  Read more.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ and the Rapture of the Church

03/23/2011 83 comments


1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

1 Corinthians 15:51-52, “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

And there it is.  Two of the — if not the — most popular “rapture” passages in the entire Bible.  Yet when many Christians read about the timing of the “rapture” at the “last trump” they are either unaware, or because of an already preconceived assumption on this very subject, refuse to even consider if the “last trumpet” of 1 Corinthians 15:52 is a direct reference to the 7th and last trumpet that John describes in the 10th chapter of Revelation. But why? Admittedly, even I was not aware of the significance of Revelation 10 for many years, but am now more than convinced that we can corroborate through the context of text that this is indeed the last trumpet that the Apostle Paul wrote about to the church in Corinth.

For a moment, if you will, toss aside any preconceptions you may have on the timing of the rapture and approach the text as if it were for the first time.  Approach it with the heart of a Berean so that together we may search the Scriptures. Read more…

‘Near-Genocide Conditions’ for Iraqi Christians, Archbishop Says

03/23/2011 Leave a comment

“DUNDALK, Ireland (CNS) — An Iraqi archbishop spoke of ‘near-genocide conditions’ for Christians in his country and said those fleeing violence were straining resources in other parts of the country…

‘We are living in a region which cannot decide if it is for democracy or Islamic law,’ he said March 16 at news conference sponsored by the Catholic charitable agency Aid to the Church in Need.

Archbishop Warda criticized ‘neighboring governments feeding insurgents with money and weapons to destabilize the Iraqi government’ and said the rest of world’s governments had ‘turned their backs on us, as if the human rights abuses and near-genocide conditions Iraqi Christians experience are temporary.’

Archbishop Warda said that since the U.S.-led occupation of his country began in 2003, more than 500 Christians had been killed in religious and politically motivated violence.

Between 2006 and 2010, 17 Iraqi priests and two bishops were kidnapped and beaten or tortured. One bishop, four priests and three subdeacons were killed.

‘In most cases, those responsible for the crimes stated they wanted Christians out of Iraq,’ the archbishop said.”  Read more.

“KARACHI, Pakistan, March 22 (CDN) — Two Christians were gunned down and two others are in a serious condition with bullet wounds after Muslim youths attacked them outside a church building in Hyderabad last night, witnesses said.

Residents of Hurr Camp, a colony of working-class Christians in Hyderabad in Sindh Province, were reportedly celebrating the 30th anniversary of their Salvation Army church when a group of Muslim youths gathered outside the building and started playing music loudly on their cell phones. They also started teasing Christian women as they arrived for the celebration, according to reports.

Christians Younis Masih, 47, Siddique Masih, 45, Jameel Masih, 22, and a 20-year-old identified as Waseem came out of the church building to stop the Muslim youths from teasing the Christian women, telling them to respect the sanctity of the church. A verbal clash ensued, after which the Muslim youths left, only to return with handguns.”  Read more.

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Former SEIU Official Reveals Secret Plan To Destroy JP Morgan, Crash The Stock Market, And Redistribute Wealth In America

03/23/2011 Leave a comment

Listen to the full uncut audio and read the transcript here.  Now that this has become public the American government needs to investigate and prosecute these people immediately to the fullest extent of the law.  But then again, given some of Obama’s past comments and associations, I wouldn’t be surprised if even he and his administration wanted them to succeed.

“A former official of one of the country’s most-powerful unions, SEIU, has a secret plan to ‘destabilize’ the country.

The plan is designed to destroy JP Morgan, nuke the stock market, and weaken Wall Street’s grip on power, thus creating the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government.

The former SEIU official, Stephen Lerner, spoke in a closed session at a Pace University forum last weekend.

The Blaze procured what appears to be a tape of Lerner’s remarks. Many Americans will undoubtely sympathize with and support them. Still, the ‘destabilization’ plan is startling in its specificity, especially coming so close on the heels of the financial crisis.

Lerner said that unions and community organizations are, for all intents and purposes, dead. The only way to achieve their goals, therefore–the redistribution of wealth and the return of ‘$17 trillion’ stolen from the middle class by Wall Street–is to ‘destabilize the country.’

Lerner’s plan is to organize a mass, coordinated ‘strike’ on mortgage, student loan, and local government debt payments–thus bringing the banks to the edge of insolvency and forcing them to renegotiate the terms of the loans. This destabilization and turmoil, Lerner hopes, will also crash the stock market, isolating the banking class and allowing for a transfer of power.”  Read more.

Radiation Levels Rise in Tokyo Tap Water as New Evacuations Ordered at Nuke Plant

03/23/2011 Leave a comment

“A spike in radiation levels in Tokyo tap water spurred new fears about food safety Wednesday as rising black smoke forced another evacuation of workers trying to stabilize Japan’s radiation-leaking nuclear plant.

Radiation has seeped into vegetables, raw milk, the water supply and seawater since a magnitude-9 quake and killer tsunami crippled the Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant nearly two weeks ago. Broccoli was added to a list of tainted vegetables, and U.S. and Hong Kong officials announced a block on Japanese dairy and some produce from the region.

The crisis is emerging as the world’s most expensive natural disaster on record, likely to cost up to $309 billion, according to a new government estimate. The death toll continued to rise, with more than 9,400 bodies counted and more than 15,600 people listed as missing.”  Read more.

Colorado Farmland Goes Dry as Suburbs Secure Water Supplies

03/23/2011 Leave a comment

“Colorado farmers still own more than 80 percent of water flowing in the state, but control is rapidly passing from them as growing suburbs move to secure supplies for the future.

The scramble is intensifying as aging farmers offer their valuable water rights to thirsty cities, drying up ag land so quickly that state overseers are worried about the life span of Colorado’s agricultural economy.

‘The status quo has been going to agriculture (interests) and buying and drying. That’s not good,’ said John Stulp, a cattle rancher and former state agriculture commissioner who is Gov. John Hickenlooper’s special policy adviser on water. ‘We need to do it in a smarter way.’

Since 1987, Colorado farmers and ranchers have sold at least 191,000 acre-feet of water to suburbs, according to a review of water transactional data. (That’s enough water to fill Chatfield Reservoir nine times— and enough to sustain 382,000 families of four for a year.)”  Read more.


Mass Fish Kill Discovered in Presque Isle State Park, Indiana

03/23/2011 Leave a comment

“ERIE, Pa. — A state environmental biologist says a large fish kill along the shores of Presque Isle State Park in Erie is “natural” and “no cause for alarm.”

People walking along the shore of the park’s Misery Bay noticed large numbers of dead fish Tuesday and alerted authorities.

Jim Grazio, a Great Lakes biologist, tells the Erie Times-News that 99 percent of the dead fish were gizzard shad. The fish is a freshwater herring that is very sensitive to cold temperatures and temperature changes.

Grazio, who works for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, says the fish began dying in January but they were hidden by ice on the lake. The cold temperatures also slowed the decomposition of the fish, which became visible and washed ashore as the ice melted.”  Source.

Dozens of Musk Oxen Found Dead Near Bering Strait

03/23/2011 Leave a comment

“The National Park Service says 32 musk oxen were found dead and frozen into ice on the northern coast of the Seward Peninsula after a flood last week. The deaths were discovered during a March 15 flight to track four radio-collared oxen in the herd.

Park Service officials say the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve herd included 55 animals when it was last seen on Feb. 14, and that the other animals could be submerged in the ice. A Feb. 25 winter storm generated a tidal surge and coastal flooding that rapidly inundated low-lying areas.

The musk oxen were tagged as part of a five-year study of the animals’ population dynamics in northwest Alaska.

The flooding and deaths are being investigated by the Park Service, which is also leading an effort to minimize conflicts between wildlife drawn to the area and local communities. Officials say the removal of musk ox horns from federal parklands is illegal, and that the dead animals’ meat is likely neither salvageable nor palatable.”  Source.
