Climate Clues

September 29, 2010

Geologist Professor Don J. Easterbrook makes a prediction for the world’s climate out to 2100

In his prediction, the next cool phase bottoms out around 2040 and the following warm phase tops out around 2080 with temperatures higher than currently experienced.

A cold climate would have a severe impact on the worlds ability to grow crops and feed itself with some areas hit harder than others. In Revelation 6:8 we have this prediction:

8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

A hot climate would result in scorching temperatures. In Revelation 8:7 we have this prediction:

7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

The conditions in the first biblical prediction are experienced by man-kind in general no matter what his or her affiliation i.e. normal climate. In the intervening time between the two biblical predictions the Christian church is taken out of the Earth and the conditions of the second prediction will be experienced by those remaining and especially by those who have taken the mark of the beast

Climate Wars

September 29, 2010

The EU is moving to ban air flights from landing unless the airlines engage in carbon trading. These headlines from climate change skeptic sites highlight the dictatorial aspect of the move:

Climate Wars: EU Threatens Rest Of The World With Flight Ban

Cancel all your European travel and vacation plans – carbon trading extortion is here

Revelation 13 describes a dictatorial governmental beast and the people ask the question in verse 4;

Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

The definition of the Greek word for war translated here is:

  1. to war, carry on war
  2. to fight

This indicates from definition 2. that the people are powerless to overturn a pronouncement such as the EU flight ban proposal that imposes EU law on foreign entities.

Let’s see how this turns out.

Update 1.

Brussels has broken our power to rule

Update 2.

Aviation deal clears way for emissions scheme: EU

“The ETS is the EU’s main tool for combating climate change and it wants to see the system adopted worldwide”

Update 3.

UN goal set for capping aviation emissions – endorses EU scheme

“ICAO the first UN agency to lead a sector in “a globally harmonised agreement for addressing its CO2 emissions”.”

The Totalitarians

September 19, 2010

What is at the root of stories such as this proposal by the mad-science fringe to save the planet by……polluting the planet?

From WUWT http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/09/16/another-aerosol-injection-plan/

“Scientists at the Carnegie Institution’s Department of Global Ecology have taken a new approach on examining a proposal to fix the warming planet. So-called geo-engineering ideas—large-scale projects to change the Earth’s climate—have included erecting giant mirrors in space to reflect solar radiation, injecting aerosols of sulfate into the stratosphere making a global sunshade,,,,,,,,,,,,,,”

Of course they use the CO2-distorted global climate models to justify their “experiment”:

“The Carnegie scientists ran five simulations using a global climate model with different sulfate aerosol concentrations depending on latitude. They then used the results from these simulations in an optimization model to determine what distribution of sulfates would come closest to achieving specified climate goals. They then tested these distributions in the global climate model to assess how well the climate goals were met”

The first comment at WUWT says it all (apart from the sinister eugenic connotations):

Andres Valencia says:
September 16, 2010 at 9:31 pm

Is this for real?
First, models substitute experiments, now models substitute common sense!
Precautions?
Please keep it virtual, yes?

And the model outputs are based on model input assumptions. Fourth WUWT comment:

Mike Ford says:
September 16, 2010 at 9:43 pm

I got lost in the 3rd paragraph. The output of model 1 is the input to model 2. The output of model 2 is the input to model 3. This is science??????

Except that the initial model 1 input assumptions do not replicate the climate drivers active over the last 200 years; they only assume that ACO2 is the major climate driver so they cannot even replicate the current observed condition. If they did incorporate the natural cycles – solar (not the Judith Lean version), 60 year, Milankovitch etc they might be able to take a stab at the next seasons weather and the Global Warming, sorry, “Global Climate Disruption” problem will have blown away in the last spring storm.

Dots have already been joined. From Prison Planet:

“However, when you consider the fact that the global warming mantra is a thin veil for eugenics and population control, it’s unlikely that the world’s elite care about one third of the planet’s population being unable to eat, in fact they would probably see that as a bonus.

The known facts about what happens when the environment is loaded with sulphur dioxide are bad enough, since the compound is the main component of acid rain, which according to the EPA “Causes acidification of lakes and streams and contributes to the damage of trees at high elevations (for example, red spruce trees above 2,000 feet) and many sensitive forest soils. In addition, acid rain accelerates the decay of building materials and paints, including irreplaceable buildings, statues, and sculptures that are part of our nation’s cultural heritage.”

The health effects of bombarding the skies with sulphur dioxide alone are enough to mothball taxpayer funded research into the idea.

The following health effects are linked with exposure to sulphur.

– Neurological effects and behavioral changes
– Disturbance of blood circulation
– Heart damage
– Effects on eyes and eyesight
– Reproductive failure
– Damage to immune systems
– Stomach and gastrointestinal disorder
– Damage to liver and kidney functions
– Hearing defects
– Disturbance of the hormonal metabolism
– Dermatological effects
– Suffocation and lung embolism

According to the LennTech website, “Laboratory tests with test animals have indicated that sulfur can cause serious vascular damage in veins of the brains, the heart and the kidneys. These tests have also indicated that certain forms of sulfur can cause foetal damage and congenital effects. Mothers can even carry sulfur poisoning over to their children through mother milk. Finally, sulfur can damage the internal enzyme systems of animals.”

Fred Singer, president of the Science Environmental Policy Project and a skeptic of man-made global warming theories, warns that the consequences of tinkering with the planet’s delicate eco-system could have far-reaching dangers.

“If you do this on a continuous basis, you would depress the ozone layer and cause all kinds of other problems that people would rather avoid,” said Singer.

Even Greenpeace’s chief UK scientist – a staunch advocate of the man-made global warming explanation – Doug Parr – has slammed attempts to geo-engineer the planet as “outlandish” and “dangerous”..

So, where does the Carnegie Institution’s Department of Global Ecology get their funding?

Follow the money for the answer – the Carnegie Endowment
http://www.carnegieendowment.org/about/index.cfm?fa=funding

The Rockefeller Brothers contribute via Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rockefeller Financial Services and The Rockefeller Foundation.

And what does David Rockefeller believe?

“The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

We also have US President Obama’s “science” czar John P. Holdren wanting to “de-develop” the United States:

http://climatechangedispatch.com/enviro-extremists/7687-white-house-science-czar-says-he-would-use-free-market-to-de-develop-the-united-states

The totalitarians aspirations have not gone unnoticed by man-made climate change skeptics:

http://joannenova.com.au/2010/09/un-totalitarians-want-your-money-and-your-life/

http://noconsensus.wordpress.com/2010/09/09/un-plans-expanding-influence-on-world-agenda/

But the root of this totalitarianism is arch totalitarian – Satan. The dragon that gives power to the governmental beast of Revelation 13.

2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

3And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

4And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

The worship hasn’t started yet but the power is being flexed.

The Mark of the Beast

September 19, 2010

Revelation 13:

“16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”.

Although this prophecy is documented in Revelation 13, it actually takes place in the fifth seal prophecy of Revelation 6. Given that there is the possibility that we are about to see the third seal prophecy fulfilled, a warning is in order.

It may seem fanciful to anyone stumbling on this post that the enforced marking of “civil society” by a totalitarian regime on a global scale could take place but if at some time in the future the reader is faced with the prospect of taking a tattoo, brand or chip, the truth of this prophecy will be self-evident.

The forehead is reserved by God to mark those that belong to him. This is shown some time later in the trumpet prophesies when 144,000 people in the nation of Israel are marked:

2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Satan will use a mark on the forehead or right hand to force allegiance to him.

Anytime prior to the mark of the beast (Satan’s mark) being taken, the invitation of God to eternal life is open. The moment the mark of the beast is received, the invitation is closed, the door to eternity is shut. You have sold your soul.

The choice will be yours: Jesus or Satan; eternal life or eternal destruction. For the right to buy and sell, will you sell your soul?

Jesus’ case for your redemption and refusal to take the mark of the beast is this, from Mark 8:

36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

The Fourth Part of the Earth

September 13, 2010

The fourth seal prophecy of Revelation 6: 7,8 states:

“7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

This begs the question – where is the fourth part of the earth?

The answer may come from history. Consider this quote from A.D. 1507 by cartographer Martin Waldseemüller:

The earth is now known to be divided into four parts. The fourth part is an island because it has been found to be completely surrounded on all of its sides by sea. Just as there is only earth, there is only one Ocean, yet it is made up of many different seas… ”

The following is a description of the island by a reviewer of the same cartographers map:

“There’s not much labeled on these lands. The northern continent has two large islands off to the south, called Isabella Insula (Isabella’s Island) and Spagnolla Insula (Spain’s Island), while the southern continent has a description saying it was discovered under the mandate of the King of Castile. Down in the bottom right block, where the end of the land drops tantalizingly into the edge of the map, the name America. ”

These quotes are from a review of the book “The Naming of America” by John W. Hessler. The review by Elinor Teele can be accessed here:

So, is the “fourth part of the earth”,  North and South America?

The Beast in the East

March 13, 2010

Speculation as to the identity of the first beast of Revelation 13 which is governmental in nature requires the adoption of a scenario that satisfies the criteria of all other prophecies of the bible pertaining to end-times. The EU in concert with the UN is a strong possibility given the centralized planning and control policies and emerging world-wide influence with the attendant possibility of the backing of the second beast of Revelation which is a major religious figure, possibly a future Pope.

This scenario is the subject of other posts on this site and has as its basis a revived Roman Empire which eventually had East and West divisions centered  in Constantinople and Rome but also more plausibly a revived Holy Roman Empire centered in Germany that had major Roman Catholic Church influence. This scenario ignores the other major world religious influence – Islam.

The uncertainty at present in identifying the best match to the prophecy is the interpretation of the symbolism describing the entity in Rev 13:1 and 2

“1 ….seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.  2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion”

This post is not to analyze the two verses but to point to another possible scenario that the first beast is an Islamic Theocracy backed by the second beast (and False Prophet) which would be a new Islamic religious leader with the status of the legendary 10th century al-Mahdi. Other commentators have pursued this line of investigation, Jack Kelly: “The Revived Ottoman Empire” and EAR at fivedoves.com.

The recent arrest by Turkish police of 52 current and former military commanders for their part in “allegedly planning to blow up mosques in order to trigger a military takeover and overthrow the Islamic-oriented government” (reported by AP) is a development worth consideration along with a reduced likelihood of Turkey joining the EU and the Turkish political leaders looking to their own region instead.

It will become apparent as time goes on which scenario is the more credible, especially if there is conflict between the two powers with one or the other gaining ascendancy. At present the EU has the momentum and resources but who knows what restructuring lies in the interim. There is also an unanswered question in respect to US power in Europe; for example, the 90 nuclear warheads based in Italy.

What cannot be ruled out is that the East – West power structure of the old Roman Empire may re-emerge so that the final entity is an amalgam of both scenarios – watch the space.

Signs of Future Times

Energy From Space or Fire From Heaven?

Solar energy collected in space and beamed back to earth by laser could soon be used to power homes and electric vehicles under a project by European space engineers. Revelation 13:13 tells us that the False Prophet will perform a similar act:

13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

It remains to be seen (and discerned) whether the actions of the False Prophet are a Satanic miracle or a man-made deception utilizing the laser technology above.

Earth Worshipers Beware!

The U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado is adding a worship area for followers of earth-centred  religions. Revelation 13:12 tells us that the False Prophet will not be so tolerant of competing objects of worship:

12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Notice the distinction between the “earth” and “them that dwell therein”. Even the earth is subordinate in the Beast worship regime.

The Beginning of Sorrows

January 16, 2010

In his Olivet discourse (a dual prophecy describing end-times and the destruction of Jerusalem 70 AD), Jesus made this prophecy:

Matthew 24

6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

There have been two World Wars that satisfy “nation rising against nation” and plenty of famines, pestilences and earthquakes, Haiti just being the most recent, so are we ready to move on to verse 9? No, first we must check-in to a parallel prophecy in the Revelation of John that details a sequence of events ushered in by the opening of seals of a book – the Apocalypse. The relevant seals here are 2 and 4:

Revelation 6

4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Rev 6:4 corresponds with Matt 24:6,7 in regard to wars and Rev 6:8 corresponds to Matt 24:7 in regard to famines, pestilences and earthquakes.

Depending on the interpretation of Rev 6:8 “power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill”, either A) 1/4 of the earths population will die or B) an undefined fourth part of the earth will experience varying degrees of death as a result of the causes described. If the correct interpretation is A) then clearly this prophecy has not yet been fulfilled. If B) is correct then the prophecy could be in effect currently.

There is another seal prophecy which if interpreted literally sets a time marker; seal 3 sets this criterion:

Revelation 6:6

A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny

This means that for this prophecy to be fulfilled, wheat will cost 3 times more than barley on world markets. In November 2009 wheat was 1.36 times the cost of barley FOB Gulf of Mexico so conditions then did not match the time marker of seal 3 if that is what it is but in August 1996 wheat was 2.79 times the cost of barley. The freezing northern hemisphere weather could cause  wheat prices to spike in 2010 as they did in the food crisis of 2008 so the ratio could change drastically in the coming months. Bloomberg, on January 10 2010 reported wheat prices climbing to a five week high.

Adopting the position that condition A) has not been met and neither has the time marker we should not move on to the next prophecies but if the conditions have been met, what’s next?

Matthew 24:9

9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Revelation 6:9 and 11 (5th seal)

9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Revelation 13:7

7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

The second two verses and the “him” in Rev 13:7 refer specifically to the activities of the first beast of Rev 13; the totalitarian world government that will demand allegiance to a Luciferian (Satanic) regime. Obviously bible believing Christians will be dissenters – and will  suffer the consequences.

Prophecies in Tandem

January 9, 2010

In his Telegraph UK news blog, Gerald Warner made this comment and a prediction:

“The references above to the Soviet Union are deliberate. I employ them because of the very real parallel with the present situation. The global warming frauds always had Plan A and Plan B in preparation. Plan A was to brainwash the population of Britain, America and the rest of the developed world into believing in man-made global warming. That was the preferred option; but it has failed.

Plan B, which will now come into operation, is to replicate what happened in the Soviet Union in the 1980s. Nobody believed in the economic illiteracy that was Marxism-Leninism any more; but jobs, promotion, status, even retaining one’s liberty depended on paying lip service to it. Those are the terms on which the ideology of Global Warming will now be imposed on a sceptical population: by bribery, coercion, brainwashing of children, employment and promotion blackmail.”

Note the uncanny similarity between Gerald Warner’s Plan B prophecy and this bible prophecy from Rev 13:16 and 17:

“16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Gerald also comments on religion so it is possible that he has a knowledge of Rev 13 and is making a projection based on it. What Gerald omits to mention is who will impose the ideology but the bible prophecy is clear that it is a brutal totalitarian governmental/religious power with a global reach.

What is also clear is that Green (Eco-fascism) is the new Red (Communism).

Commonism – the new Communism?

January 2, 2010

In his new years address, Pope Benedict XVI used either  the words “common”, “community”, “communities” or “communion” 29 times along with a liberal sprinkling of the word “solidarity” and the term “human family”. At the inauguration of US President Obama there was a similar theme, Rick Warren: “common good“, Barack Obama: “common purpose”,”common good”, “common defense”, “common humanity”, “common dangers“, Bishop Lowery: “community of nations”, “solidarity”, “oneness of our family“. And so global Commonism is born.

Commonism espouses a looming environmental crisis that must be addressed by reducing conventional energy consumption and developing alternative energy sources on the basis of a warming planet when recent science shows cooling. Pope Benedict (new year address) : “The problems looming on the horizon are complex and time is short”‘ “The technologically advanced countries are facing two pressing needs in this regard: on the one hand, to reassess the high levels of consumption due to the present model of development, and on the other hand to invest sufficient resources in the search for alternative sources of energy and for greater energy efficiency”. President Obama (inauguration speech): “We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories”, “and roll back the specter of a warming planet”.

The old Communism operated by way of centralized control but did not succeed at a global level. The new Commonism is starting its march at the global level, building on foundations already laid by organizations with a  global reach but with the same ultimate aim of centralized control by harnessing the momentum of environmentalism.  Pope Benedict advocates even more centralized bureaucracy in the new year address : “Further international agencies may need to be established in order to confront together the stewardship of this “home” of ours”, and centralized wealth distribution in the guise of environmental protection: “If the protection of the environment involves costs, they should be justly distributed, taking due account of the different levels of development of various countries” and “equitable distribution of wealth”. These statements are in concert with the orchestrations of the United Nations.

Commonism will not have global control until the global common good is codified into global common law. To this end the UN and the Vatican are in unison. Pope Benedict devotes three paragraphs to “moral” law in the new year address but the summary is this: “power must always be disciplined by law, and this applies also to relations between sovereign States”. This implies a subjugation of states and peoples to the arbiter of the “law” which begs the question – who is the arbiter?

After 15 paragraphs of political assessment, Pope Benedict moves to spiritual direction – in two sentences: “I likewise invite believers to implore tirelessly from God the great gift of peace. Christians, for their part, know that they can trust in the intercession of Mary, who, as the Mother of the Son of God made flesh for the salvation of all humanity, is our common Mother”. It seems that the business of merging the interests of organized religion with global common law and the sanction of global power take far greater precedence than the salvation of souls for eternity.

And the bible prophecy connection? Consider this from Revelation 13:

“16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”.

Now that’s Commonism.

Update 1

The words community, communities and community’s occur 89 times in the modern NIV translation of the bible but do not occur once in the KJV translation. The reason being that Christian Socialists (Communists) have been influential in most modern bible translations; these are invariably copyrighted, the KJV is not, it is open source: “the word of God is not bound” 2 Tim 2:9.

Update 2

The KJV uses the word “common” twice in relation to property and possessions:

Acts 2:44,45 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

Acts 4:32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

This was not a society wide phenomenon but was a spontaneous action only within the believer group. It was also voluntary and ensured all members needs were met. Neither was it in response to any edict that this was the ideal societal model or that it would result in earthly utopia.
