THE SIGNIFICANCE OF GROUND ZERO & GOD'S JUDGMENT ON AMERICA - REVEALED!


THE TWIN TOWERS AND ISAIAH 9: 8 - 10

September 11, 2001 is burned into the minds of the American people.  It was a day of stunned disbelief, terror and horror.  Over 3,000 men, women and children lost their lives in this horrific tragedy.  However, there is a prophetic significance to this event, the aftermath and even the land on which the Towers were located.  The parallel with the words of Isaiah 9: 8-10 is incredible. This is a must see video. It gives an insight into the past, present and future related to this event.   

God's Judgment and America's only hope!!!!!!


GOD'S JUDGMENTS ARE HERE!!  WAKE UP AMERICA!!
Wildfires burning thousands of acres, record floods swamping many states, corn and soy bean crops being devastated, unprecedented tornadoes destroying cities,  earthquakes, a collapsing economy, sky-rocketing prices on food, fuel and necessities of life, a polarized nation, and leaders without wisdom are sure signs of God's judgment on this nation.  It is time for America to wake up and repent.  God has sent prophetic voices like David Wilkerson, Leonard Ravenhill and others to warn of God's wrath against a sinful nation.  They have cried out for her to repent.  This is a compilation of their piercing, pleading messages.

An Open Appeal to President Obama Concerning Israel

















AN APPEAL TO PRESIDENT OBAMA CONCERNING THE NATION OF ISRAEL


Mr. President, 
On May 19, 2011, you demanded that Israel return to the 1967 borders, which would include giving back the Golan Heights, the West Bank and Old City of Jerusalem.  Israel's border would be reduced from 45 miles wide to 8 miles wide, which would leave Israel indefensible.  I am writing to you to consider the following historical information concerning the United States treatment of Israel. 


On nine occasions, the United States government has attempted to pressure Israel into decisions detrimental to her survival as a nation.  Her leaders have been rudely treated by US Presidents during these times.  On each occasion, disasters immediately fell upon the United States.  That history is as follows:

  • 10/30/ 1991: VP George Bush opened the Madrid Conference aimed at forcing Israel to give up more land.  Near the same time, a storm formed in the Atlantic.  It traveled in an unusual direction and sent 35 ft waves in to Bush's New England home.
  • 8/23/1992: Madrid Conference moved to Washington, D.C.  That same day, Hurricane Andrew, the worst natural disaster in US history at that time, caused over $30 billion in damage and left 180,000 homeless.
  • 1/16/1994:  President Clinton met with Syria's President for talks on forcing Israel to give up the Golan Heights.  Less than 24 hours later, a 6.9 earthquake shook Southern California.  It was the second most destructive natural disaster to hit the US.
  • 3/1/1997:  Yassar Arafat, head of the Palestine Liberation Organization, toured America.  He was in the US for one month, leaving the first part of April.  On the day he landed in the US, powerful tornadoes devastated huge sections of Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi and the Dakotas.  These storms led to the worst flooding in the 20th Century.  On the day he left, the storms ceased.  
  • 1/21/1998:  Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu net with President Clinton.  The Prime Minister was coldly received by Mr. Clinton because he flatly refused to give up more of Israel's land.  Clinton and Secretary of State Madeline Albright refused to have lunch with him.  A few hours later, the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke over Clinton's head. 
  • 9/28/1998:  Yassar Arafat addressed the United Nations in New York and stated that he would declare a Palestinian state by May 1999.  As he said these words, Hurricane George pounded the Gulf Coast and caused $1 billion in damages.  At the exact time Arafat left the US, the storm faded.
  • 8/29/2005:  President George W. Bush pressured Israel to evacuate from the Gaza Strip.  8,000 Israeli settlers were forced to leave their homes and villages.  Exactly one week later, Hurricane Katrina smashed Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.  80% of the city of New Orleans was under water.  The percentage of the Israeli population that was made homeless by the forced evacuations was almost exactly equal to the same percentage of the American population left homeless by Katrina.
  • 3/23/2010:  Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived at the White House to meet with you.  Instead of being taken through the front door, he was taken through a side door, an apparent act of humiliation.  No press corps was invited and no friendly photos taken.  Instead, he was harshly addressed by you and then was left to sit alone while you had lunch with your family.  Your parting remarks were, "If you come up with anything new, call me."  The Prime Minister flew home.  In 48 hours, huge storms caused massive flooding in the US, the worst in 200 years.  
  • 4/19/2010:  Before the United Nations, you stated that the United States will no longer automatically side with Israel at the UN.  This was the first time that any US President had made such a statement.  On April 19, Israel was celebrating her rebirth as a nation, since the Jewish Calendar is a lunar calendar, unlike our solar calendar, which would have had that birthday in May.  Within 24 hours of your statement, the British Petroleum oil well exploded killing 11 in the Gulf of Mexico.  This was the worst natural disaster in American history.  
  • 4/19/2011:  You embraced the Palestinian demand for Israel to return to the 1967 borders, which Israel has declared would be asking her to commit national suicide.  This was a radical departure for the government of the United States.  Three days later on Sunday, May 22, 2011, the deadliest single tornado since 1953 tore through Joplin, Missouri, destroying 25% or more of the city and killing 90.  A tornado hit Minneapolis also.  

Coincidence or Divine Judgment?  Genesis 12:31 warns, "And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed." 


The God of Israel also warned, "FOR BEHOLD, in those days and at that time when I shall reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with and execute judgment upon them for their treatment of My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and because they have divided My land." Joel 3:1-2


Mr. President, I humbly urge you to reconsider your stated policy toward Israel.  It is contrary to God's Word.  God has blest America in times past because she supported and defended the nation of Israel.  To demand Israel to return to the 1967 borders, leaving her in an indefensible position, will bring the wrath of God down upon our nation. Judgment has already begun! Not only the sake of Israel but for America's sake, please immediately reverse your policy.  


Sincerely,
Rev. Michael Edds

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER RESPONDS TO OBAMA


"Israeli PM calls for “just solution” to end the conflict."
 (A Fictional Response to Obama's Demand For Israel to Return to the 1967 Borders)

Aboard Air Force Aleph (Reuters) – Speaking to reporters accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his long flight to the United States tonight, Netanyahu spoke of the injustice and hardship Mexicans have endured since American forces annexed Texas in 1845. “Tens of thousands of ordinary Mexicans were driven out of their homes – the only homes they had known for centuries – and forced to live in poverty and squalor south of the border imposed by American aggression,” Netanyahu said.

“The Israeli and Mexican people agree on this: This festering wound will never heal until America takes bold steps to return to the internationally accepted lines of 1845. Clearly the settlement activity that’s taken place in occupied Mexico since then is illegal. When I meet the President tomorrow I will tell him to halt all building activity in Texas immediately. Two lands for two peoples, yes, but not on land taken by force from Mexico,” the Prime Minister said.

Asked if his hard-line stance could hurt the U.S.-Israel relationship, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s commitment to America’s security and the unshakeable friendship shared by the two countries, then added, “But who was it who said, part of friendship is being able to tell your friend the truth. The ball is now in Obama’s court.”
........................................................................................
(This is the best response to the ridiculous demand made by U.S. President Obama for Israel to return to the 1967 borders.  It is a fictional account but makes the point loud and clear.  Thanks goes to Stephen Thomas of Australia.  God bless you Stephen)!

A Letter from Hell


"A Letter from Hell"

Do you have have a friend who is unsaved and away from God?  Are you a witness in word and action to him?  What if he would die today, have you done your part to win his soul to Christ?  This video is a powerful drama written by a young man.  The story is about two youth, one a Christian and one not.  The unsaved youth dies in a tragic car wreck and writes a "letter from hell" to his friend.  This video needs to be shown in every church and home.  It is powerful!

Kansas Senators Walk out on Minister's Prayer of Repentance

When minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new sessions of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:
THE PRAYER
Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good,," but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We confess:
We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.
We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.
We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.
Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of your will. I ask it in the Name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ.
Amen.
The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. In six short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively. The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa, and Korea.
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on "The Rest of the Story" on the radio and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called one nation under God.

Ezekiel 38 - The Gog Magog War


Ezekiel 38 - The Gog Magog War
The prophecies in Ezekiel 38 & 39 were written over 2,500 years ago. They detail an attempted surprise attack on the nation of Israel. As if torn from today's headlines, these passages detail who is involved, what they will do, why they will do it and how they will be defeated.

GOD'S HAND IN THE SIX DAY WAR



"GOD'S HAND IN THE SIX DAY ARAB - ISRAELI WAR" 

Egypt, Syria, Jordan and two additional Arab armies had been supplied with $2 billion dollars worth of military equipment by the Soviet Union.  Bolster by this, five powerful Arab armies devised an evil plan to finally destroy the nation of Israel.  The odds were vastly against the small Jewish State.  The outcome appeared catastrophic.  The situation hopeless.  However, it is in the worst of times that God does the most miraculous of things.  

At 7:45 a.m. on June 5, 1967, Israel launched the most successful preemptive air strike in military history. Within a few hours, virtually the entire Egyptian Air Force lay in smoldering wreckage. Fighting on three fronts, against the combined might of five different armies, Israel secured a stunning victory in a mere six days. How did this tiny state manage to overcome an Arab enemy that had twice as many soldiers, three times as many tanks, and four times as many airplanes?   The answer.....the God of Israel!!!  


The Psalmist David declared, 


"The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD."  Psalms 27

The war lasted exactly six days and on the seventh day the army of Israel rested, just like God did after the six days of creation!  Israeli General Moshe Dayan placed a note in the Western Wall of the liberated Temple Mount.  Written on the piece of paper were these words, "This is the LORD's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes."  Psalms 118:23

"OBAMA BETRAYS ISRAEL!" "DEMANDS RETURN TO THE 1967 BORDERS!"


"OBAMA BETRAYS ISRAEL!"
 "DEMANDS RETURN TO THE 1967 BORDERS!"



May 19, 2011:  Mr. Obama announced that Israel must return to the 1967 borders, which would reduce Israel from a width of 45 miles to a width of 8 miles. This would leave Israel totally indefensible. It would be national suicide.  Prior to 1967, the Old City of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites were under the control of Jordan.  During the Jordanian occupation, Israel was denied access to these sites.  Since 1967, Israel has protected the Holy Places and permitted access to them by Jews, Christians and Muslims.  If Israel returns to the 1967 borders, she would be forced to give up Old City of Jerusalem and the Holy Sites.
  
Prime Minister Chamberlain of Britain did the same thing to Czechoslovakia prior to World War ll. Czech land was given to Hitler in order to appease him. It DID NOT work and resulted in the destruction of Czechoslovakia.  World War ensued. Israel is being put in the same dangerous position.  The God of Israel is watching with great displeasure.  

Joel 3:2 foretells how He will respond: "And I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; THE HAVE ALSO DIVIDED UP MY LAND!!"

Weep for America!  If Obama succeeds in forcing Israel into giving up her land, our nation will incur the wrath of God.  God help us all!!

ARAB PROTESTERS DESCEND ON ISRAEL'S BORDERS


ARAB PROTESTERS DESCEND ON ISRAEL'S BORDERS
MAY 15, 2011
MAJDAL SHAMS, Golan Heights — Mobilized by calls on Facebook, thousands of Arab protesters marched on Israel’s borders with Syria, Lebanon and Gaza on Sunday in an unprecedented wave of demonstrations, sparking clashes that left at least 15 people dead in an annual Palestinian mourning ritual marking the anniversary of Israel’s birth.
In a surprising turn of events, hundreds of Palestinians and supporters poured across the Syrian frontier and staged riots, drawing Israeli accusations that Damascus, and its ally Iran, orchestrated the unrest to shift attention from an uprising back home. It was a rare incursion from the usually tightly controlled Syrian side and could upset the delicate balance between the two longtime foes.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who heads to Washington at the end of the week, said he ordered the military to act with “maximum restraint” but vowed a tough response to further provocations.
“Nobody should be mistaken. We are determined to defend our borders and sovereignty,” he declared in a brief address broadcast live on Israeli TV stations.
The violence showed Israel the extent of Arab anger over the Palestinian issue, beyond the residents of the West Bank and Gaza, and came at a critical time for U.S. Mideast policy.
President Barack Obama’s envoy to the region, George Mitchell, resigned Friday after more than two years of fruitless efforts. The U.S. president may now have to retool the administration’s approach to peacemaking. Obama is expected to deliver a Mideast policy speech in the coming week.
Deadly clashes also took place along Israel’s nearby northern border with Lebanon, as well as in the Gaza Strip on Israel’s southern flank. The Israeli military said 13 soldiers were wounded, none seriously.
Sunday’s unrest – which came after activists used Facebook and other websites to mobilize Palestinians and their supporters in neighboring countries to march on the border with Israel – marked the first time the protests that have swept the Arab world in recent months have been directed at Israel.
Palestinians were marking the “nakba,” or “catastrophe” – the term they use to describe their defeat and displacement in the war that followed Israel’s founding on May 15, 1948. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were uprooted. Today, the surviving refugees and their descendants number several million people.
Each year, Palestinians throughout the region mark the “nakba” with demonstrations. But never before have marchers descended upon Israel’s borders from all directions. The Syrian incursion was especially surprising.
Israel captured the Golan from Syria in the 1967 war, and Syria demands the area back as part of any peace deal. Israel has annexed the territory. Despite hostility between the two countries, Syria has carefully kept the border quiet since the 1973 Mideast war.
Around midday, thousands of people approached the frontier, hoisting Palestinian flags, shouting slogans and throwing rocks and bottles at Israeli forces. When hundreds of people burst across the border fence into the Israeli-controlled town of Majdal Shams, surprised soldiers opened fire.
Syrian forces did not intervene – and Syrian officials reported four people were killed, and dozens wounded.
Rioters paraded through the town, flashing Syrian ID cards and holding Palestinian flags.
“This was a surprise for everyone. I have been here my whole life and never saw anything like this,” said Khatib Ibrahim, a 51-year-old resident who watched the clashes unfold as he worked in his family’s grove.
The Israeli army said more than 100 people were sent back to Syria by the time the unrest died down several hours later.
Israeli defense officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information, acknowledged the military was caught off guard by the violent marches.
Officials also said there were strong signs that Syria and its Iranian-backed Lebanese ally, Hezbollah, orchestrated the unrest.
“The Syrian regime is intentionally attempting to divert international attention away from the brutal crackdown of their own citizens to incite against Israel,” said Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich, an Israeli military spokeswoman.
Israel’s military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, told Channel 2 TV he also saw “fingerprints of Iranian provocation and an attempt to use ‘nakba day’ to create conflict.”
Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV was in place to film much of the day’s clashes, and defense officials said the activists were bused in from Palestinian refugee camps throughout Syria. Many of them held European passports and told interrogators they had been flown in from abroad for the march.
“It’s our land,” one of the infiltrators, Sufian Abdel Hamid, told Israel’s Channel 2 TV. “We won’t stop trying to come back.”
An explosion of unrest along the border could play into the hands of Syrian President Bashar Assad, who has faced two months of popular protests against political repression and rights abuses in his country. The uprising, in which human rights groups say more than 800 people have been killed, is the most serious challenge to the Assad family’s 40-year dynasty.
Assad has cast himself as the only person who can bring stability to Syria – a country with a volatile mixture of religions and sects, and with a hostile neighbor in Israel.
About 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west, Israeli troops clashed with a large crowd of Lebanese demonstrators who approached that border. The military said it opened fire when protesters tried to damage the border fence. Security officials in Lebanon reported 10 dead.
It was the deadliest incident along the volatile border since Israel fought Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas during a monthlong war five years ago.
Sunday’s shooting erupted at the tense border village of Maroun el-Rass, which saw some of the fiercest fighting in 2006. Thousands of Palestinian refugees traveled to the village in buses adorned with poster that said: “We are returning.” Many came from the 12 crowded refugee camps in Lebanon where some 400,000 Palestinian refugees live.
Hundreds of Lebanese soldiers, U.N. peacekeepers and riot police deployed heavily in the area, taking up positions along the electrified border fence and patrolling the area in military vehicles. Young Hezbollah supporters wearing yellow hats and carrying walkie-talkies organized the entry to the village and handed out Palestinian flags.
In Cairo, a security official said more than 1,000 protesters tried to push their way past a tight security cordon toward the Israeli Embassy, located on the top floor of a building. Egyptian soldiers guarding the embassy fired tear gas to disperse the crowd. One protester burned an Israeli flag.
There was also violence in a predictable location – Gaza.
Palestinian medics said 125 people were wounded when demonstrators in the Gaza Strip tried to approach a heavily fortified border crossing into Israel. One man was killed by an Israeli sniper. The military said he was trying to plant a bomb.
In Jordan, meanwhile, police blocked a group of protesters trying to reach the border with Israel. In addition, hundreds of West Bank Palestinian threw stones at Israeli police and burned tires at a checkpoint outside Jerusalem before they were dispersed.
Inside Israel, police were on high alert for disturbances among the country’s large Arab minority, and Israeli police spokeswoman Sigal Toledo said a deadly traffic incident involving an Arab truck driver in Tel Aviv was “most likely” an attack.
The driver plowed through a crowded street, crashing into a bus, several cars and pedestrians, killing one and injuring 16 others. Police said the 22-year-old driver claimed it was an accident, but a witness said he had to subdue the man and that he was shouting slogans against Jews.
Arab protesters have vowed to march against Israel in September 2011, when the Palestinian Authority is set to declare a Palestinian state.  
The Prophecy of Obadiah is quickly coming to pass! 
  • Obadiah 1:  "This is what the Sovereign LORD says about Edom (Arab nations). We have heard a message from the LORD:  An envoy was sent to the nations to say, “Rise, let us go against her (Israel) for battle.”
  • Obadiah 7:  " All your allies will force you to the (Israel's) border; your friends will deceive and overpower you."
The "Arab Spring" is giving birth to the Islamic Caliphate (state), which will attack Israel on all fronts.  The remainder of the Prophecy of Obadiah records the outcome of that war.   Obadiah 17:  "But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;  it will be holy, and Jacob will possess his inheritance.  Jacob will be a fire and Joseph a flame; Esau will be stubble,  and they will set him on fire and destroy him. There will be no survivors from Esau.  The LORD has spoken."

Shocking Headline: "Islamic Cleric Declares: "Destruction of Israel and Jews Will Bring Blessing to the World!"





Shocking Headline: "Islamic Cleric Declares: "Destruction of Israel and Jews Will Bring Blessing to the World!"

An Arabic Islamic cleric declared that the Quran sentences Jews and Israel to extermination "before a single Jew existed on earth," and that blessing upon Palestinians and the world depends on the destruction of Israel and the Jews.  He stated that  Israel was the "head of the snake of world-wide corruption" and must be "cut off."  These horrendous and frightening statements bring back the bitter memories of Hitler and the Holocaust, which led to the slaughter of six million Jews.  The Prophet Ezekiel declared that the Arabs (descendants of Esau) possessed an "ancient hatred" for the Jewish people.  This hatred goes back 4,000 years to the conflict between Esau and Jacob (Israel).  Arabic educational systems instill this vicious hatred into generation after generation of Arab youth.  The Arabs want the inheritance that God gave to Israel long ago:  the land of Israel or Palestine.  


The world stage has recently been set for the culmination of this ancient conflict.  The "Arab Spring," which has led to the overthrow of many Arab governments, will result in an Islamic super state or "Caliphate."  Psalms 83: 1- 8 foretells of a coalition of nations (the Islamic Arabic Caliphate) would arise against Israel in the last days.  In 586 BC,  Obadiah  prophesied that the Arabic Caliphate's goal would be to destroy Israel. “Rise, let us go against her (Israel) for battle” (Obadiah 1). There are 200 million Arabs compared to Israel's 6 million population.  It is a repeat of the battle between David and Goliath! Arabic pride will cause a massive army to come against Israel's borders.  Obadiah 1 - 17 gives the details and outcome of this war...


 " But on Mount Zion will be deliverance; 
   it will be holy,
   and Jacob will possess his inheritance.
18 Jacob will be a fire
   and Joseph a flame;
Esau will be stubble,
   and they will set him on fire and destroy him.
There will be no survivors
   from Esau.”
 The LORD has spoken.



Israel will be delivered and the Islamic Arabic nations will be totally destroyed. Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia will be obliterated by Israel's "weapon of fire." Isaiah 17 foretells that Damascus, one of the oldest cities on earth, will become a heap of ruins.  It will never be inhabited again.

The stage is already set for this imminent Middle East war.  Recently, Arab militants tried to breach Israel's borders on three fronts.  A call has been issued to Arabs to attempt the same thing in September, when the Palestinians will unilaterally declare an Islamic Palestinian state.  Jesus IS coming SOON!

Leopard Sharks Dying off the Coast of California

 Leopard Sharks Dying off the Coast of California


May 13, 2011 – REDWOOD CITY, CA. – Dozens of leopard sharks have been washing up dead in California since April, and now a necropsy shows at least one of the sharks died of massive internal bleeding, such that blood was even coming out of the shark’s skin, according to a Daily News report. The necropsy, conducted by the California Department of Fish and Game, uncovered “inflammation, bleeding and lesions in the brain, and hemorrhaging from the skin near vents.” According to the Daily News story, bleeding was additionally detected around the tested female’s other internal organs. The results suggest the 50 sharks that have washed up dead at Redwood Shores in Redwood City, California, since April must have died a slow and agonizing death. Catherine Greer, a resident of the city, said she and her son tried to save some of the sharks by returning them to the water, but “they’d swim right back, thrashing their heads against the shore … as if they were trying to commit suicide.” A key question then clearly remains: What is causing the internal bleeding? As of now, that’s still a mystery. A statement released by the Silicon Valley city mentioned, “The…pathologist is not drawing any conclusions until more examinations and all tests are performed.” A bacterial study and microscopic tissue analysis are underway. Investigators have not ruled out a human-caused spill of toxic chemicals, although no big spill has been reported in the region over the past couple of months. Sean Van Sommeran, executive director of the Pelagic Shark Research Foundation in nearby Santa Cruz, suspects “we’re only seeing a tiny fraction of what’s going on,” meaning more sharks and other animals are likely being affected by the problem.

Arkansas: 50 Earthquakes In One Week, 700 In Last Six Months


ARKANSAS IS SHAKING

There was a 3.2-magnitude earthquake at 6:18 a.m, February 18, 2011  near Greenbrier, Ark., the U.S. Geological Survey reports. That's in the north central part of the state.
But that's hardly the whole story!
Since February 20, the United States Geological Survey reported more than 50 earthquakes in that area. And, local station KATV reported, there have been more than 700 in the past six months.
"Scott Ausbrooks, geohazards supervisor for the Arkansas Geological Survey, said the quakes are part of what is now called the Guy earthquake swarm — a series of mild earthquakes that have been occurring periodically since 2009. A similar swarm occurred in the early 1980s when a series of quakes hit Enola, Ark.
"Ausbrooks said geologists are still trying to discover the exact cause of the recent seismic activity but have identified two possibilities.
" 'It could just be a naturally occurring swarm like the Enola swarm, or it could be related to ongoing natural gas exploration in the area,' he said."
There's been a lot of nature-related news from Arkansas recently, particularly those mysterious bird and fish kills.  The New Madrid Fault Line, one of the largest earthquake zones in the United States, runs through Arkansas.  Scientists have become alarmed that the New Madrid is coming to life.  The last major earthquake along that fault line reversed and rerouted the flow of the Mississippi River.  Should a major quake today along this line, there would be massive destruction and loss of life throughout many states along this line.  
Luke 21:11 - "And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven."  The Coming of the Lord is near!  Are you ready to meet Him?

David Wilkerson's Last Message


David Wilkerson's Last Message

The following was David Wilkerson's last message.  It was given on the day that he was killed in a tragic car wreck.  It is moving and prophetic.  May he enjoy the wonders of Heaven and bask in the Presence of the Lord!

"WHEN ALL MEANS FAIL"
 David Wilkerson (Apr 27)
To believe when all means fail is exceedingly pleasing to God and is most acceptable. Jesus said to Thomas, “You have believed because you have seen, but blessed are those that do believe and have not seen” (John 20:29). Blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer— who trust beyond hope when all means have failed. Someone has come to the place of hopelessness— the end of hope—the end of all means. A loved one is facing death and doctors give no hope. Death seems inevitable. Hope is gone. The miracle prayed for is not happening. That is when Satan'’s hordes come to attack your mind with fear, anger, overwhelming questions: “Where is your God now? You prayed until you had no tears left. You fasted. You stood on promises. You trusted.” Blasphemous thoughts will be injected into your mind: “Prayer failed. Faith failed. Don'’t quit on God —just do not trust him anymore. It doesn't pay!” Even questioning God'’s existence will be injected into your mind. These have been the devices of Satan for centuries. Some of the godliest men and women who ever lived were under such demonic attacks. To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: "Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights —and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, “I am with you. I cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident. It was no failure on your part. Hold fast. Let me embrace you in your hour of pain."” Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail— His love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in His Word. There is no other hope in this world.
