Posted on 02/19/2011 8:02:58 PM PST by jackv
The 42-foot tall Colorado blue spruce snapped at its base during high winds Saturday morning in Washington.
The spruce had been in its current location for more than 32 years. It came from the Myers family farm outside of York, Pennsylvania, the Park Service said.

An ominous omen.
I was thinking the same thing.
Here is something that was seen as tall and strong, snapped at ‘it’s base’ and toppled over. Obviously the base wasn’t as strong as it appeared to be.
An omen for Obama or for America as a whole?
Kind of says it all about this entire Administration.
Yep..I think it might just be that.
Nice geetars. Did you refinish them yourself?
Reason I ask, there is a guy I met over here who turned a hobby doing that into quite a good sideline. He does remarkably beautiful work. At his own pace;which is slow. He has a 3 year waiting list right now. He does 'em one at a time.
I currently hold a pan-Tribulation imagery. Have you heard of it?
The Ax, Trees, and its Roots
It’s a eerie feeling to hear the truth spoken by ancient Prophets and not feel some sort of fear to what they were saying. To tell you the truth, I would have straighten up my act if I lived in those days, it’s not easy to turn off from what those people were hearing. In the case of the Messiah, I would have thrown myself at his feet because he demonstrated so much loved, he would have easily won me over in no time in those days.
Now the Messiah spoke of Wars, Famine, pestilences, and drought. Today they are aggressively spreading throughout the nations like a incurable disease. The earth is slowly decaying and human beings are dying by the thousands. We see it manifest in the middle east and various parts of africa, india, and parts of asia... etc. Even here in the west we are seeing and hearing things on the media that makes you shiver. Now it’s evident that the spreading of catastrophe is throughout all the world’s regions. No one can fix these disasters. We will never conquer it because we have no strength or any way to preventing it from spreading throughout the entire world.
The Voice of Adonai and his Word had brought on a horrific catastrophe like never before. Humanity is so naive to this devastating effect and blaming it on global warming and the ozone layer and among other things. When you listen to the media these days, it is like seeing and hearing but not really paying any attention to what is really happening in the world. It’s like having a lost of interest concerning the incidences happening among humanity today. They hear it and forget it and it becomes a thing of the past. I usually cry and pray that the horror would stop. It is awful to even think of those unspeakable things I have seen online.
Material substance which are man’s possessions have utimately bern destroyed, and they have not yet come to the reality of the time frame we are living in. Frighten as it may be, we do not hear the wailing of people since these disasters occured. They may be sometimes and not often as they should. Where is the wailing of the people in the land today. In the biblical days there were much wailing and calling out to God in those days. Shouldn’t they be calling on Adonai, and asking for forgiveness as well as repenting from their sins?
Is it Adonai’s Spirit that is moving In, Under, and Around this planet earth ts not just natural disasters. If that is the case their cry should be more frequent and louder among families members, and neigbors a like who have seen the horror of tornatos, hurricanes, firces thunderstorm, forest fires, mudslids, etc, and they refuse to call upon the only Name who has control of the elements? This is something really to think about.
We hear the Preaching of the Gospel and man do not react out of fear for God, nor understand what is being conveyed to the Gospel pages. The words of the Messiah are the end time of the end, and prophesies are being unveiled even as we speak. The word that Was then, and Is now spoken by him has now come to past. Yeshua’s return is nearing and humanity is not saved and yet time is moving progressively closer to the day of the final judgement, and the day of God’s vengeance upon the wicked.
This seems odd to me. I've seen trees of that size snap in the middle or near the top in wind storms. I've even seen trees that large uproot during high winds. But I've never seen a 42' footer snap at the base unless there was a tornado.
Flies on the president, rats photographed at the WH, racoon and bee invasion, teleprompter falls down, national Christmas tree blown over....strange, strange things we’ve never seen before with a presidency.
You would think someone would have even possibly remotely could have anticipated this and could have brought equipment in to help anchor the tree, just shows the appalling disdain and negligence that is occurring at the Whitehouse.
First the Presidential seal *jumps* off the lectern on Obama, now the national Christmas tree right in Obama’s backyard gets blown clear down. - Well, I saw on BBC news the other night where the U.S. vetoed the U.N. resolution effort by the Muslim nations to rebuke Israel. I’d read here where the Obama Administration intended to join in with them on it. If BBC had it right, I don’t know what stopped the Obama bunch from going ahead with it.
“More than 32 years” it says, so It was planted during Carter’s administration? Maybe there is symbolism here after all. /s
There are far too many problems with the Pseudo-Ephram texts to use these documents as any sort of evidence regarding spiritual matters. For starters, they exist in Greek, Syriac, and Latin, are not the same, and the Latin (8th century text) is not a good translation of either the Greek or Syriac texts (which do not agree with each other). The Syriac text does not support a rapture.
I’ve heard of pan-tribulation, but the longer I study Christianity the more firmly convinced I am that the post-tribulation rapture is what occurs and that Matthew 24:29-31 directly correlates chronologically with Revelation 19:11-21 ...
There have been 3 trees in the Ellipse. First, FDR’s...Died. Second, Carter’s...snapped in two. Third, Obama???? hmmmm see a pattern here?
Big Tobacco, Big Oil, Big Pharmaceutical and now - BIG Trees!!
Too bad it didn’t fall on the White House.
Yep. People should see these things and cry out to God, but many will just blame the events on natural causes or curse God instead.... Sad.
It’s the fault of all those libs over at Fark.com.
