  • Get Ready For A Summer Of Crisis After Crisis

    Ignoring long-term problems can work for a while, but eventually they catch up with you. Over the years, I have written many articles about alarming long-term trends in our society that desperately needed to be addressed. Of course the vast majority of those long-term trends never got much attention, because our political system tends to reward politicians that focus on short-term issues. As a result, many of the long-term trends that I have written about previously have now gotten to a point where they have started to become very serious short-term problems. In this article, I would like to share...
  • Three Volcanoes erupt at the Same Time in Guatemala

    03/01/2021 3:42:06 PM PST · by Roman_War_Criminal · 25 replies ^ | 2/28/21 | Video Mgr.
    Guatemala’s three most active volcanoes have magnificently erupted simultaneously. The last time the phenomenon occurred was in 2018. That event took the lives of hundreds of locals when communities were hit by gas, ash, and rock. Volcanoes are explicitly mentioned by the prophets as playing a role in the end of days, preparing the world by burning away impurities as a crucible is used in metallurgy to purify metal. This process is described in Zechariah. And I will bring the third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is...
  • Why Does God Allow Christians to Suffer?

    The reason For My Faith ^ | 1/29/21 | Chuck Ness
    “Why didn’t God just create us so that we would never have to experience pain, suffering, or sadness?”After all, God has the power to make the world free of evil, yet He chose instead to make us creatures with free will. Thus, free will was the door left open for the possibility of evil entering our lives. Then one must ask, "What's the purpose of pain, suffering? Why does God allow humans, who were made in His image, to live on a planet where evil abounds?"Well, God could have made us perfect without the ability to sin, and we...

    Commentary ^ | 7/27/2012 | John Podhoretz
    The news this morning is, quite simply, catastrophic for the president. Economic growth in the second quarter slowed to 1.5 percent annualized from 2 percent in the first quarter. The economy is weakening as the election approaches. No one has ever won reelection in such circumstances. No one. (Harry Truman: 4.4 percent growth in Q2, 1948. Ike: 2 percent growth in 1956 Q2 after negative growth in Q1. Nixon, Q2, 1972: 5.3 percent. Clinton: 3.5 percent. GW Bush: 3.4 percent.) Granted, things aren’t as bad for Obama as they were for Jimmy Carter; in the second quarter of 1980, the...

    CNN Money ^ | 8-8-11 | Charles Riley
    Credit rating agency Standard and Poor's on Monday downgraded the debt of mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The downgrades to AA+ are part of the continued fallout from the agency's decision to drop U.S. sovereign debt to AA+, an unprecedented move that rattled investors and sparked concern over the long-term impact of the action It was widely expected that S&P's downgrade of U.S. debt would roll downhill to other entities that are closely linked to the federal government.

    W.H. warns of debt 'calamity' By ABBY PHILLIP | 05/18/11 4:12 PM Updated: 05/18/11 4:56 PM In an effort to clamp down on “misinformation” about the debt ceiling and to ratchet up the pressure on Congress to act, the Obama administration said Wednesday that there is no “Plan B” for the government if Congress fails to raise the borrowing limit. Unlike the budget standoff in March, where a plan would have gone into place if the government shut down, an administration official warned that there is no “secret plan” that would kick in if the government runs out of borrowing...
  • CA: Property taxes to increase despite falling home values

    San Diego Union - Tribune ^ | 3/16/09 | Roger Showley
    With home values in free fall in many places, it might follow logically that property taxes would go down as well. Not so in San Diego County. The county assessor's office predicts that property taxes will increase this year for 75 percent of homes and other properties. That would produce a projected $91 million in additional revenue to the county, cities, school districts and other jurisdictions. “We don't have a choice,” said Jeff Olson, chief of county property assessment services. The mandate comes from Proposition 13, the 1978 tax-limitation measure, and subsequent regulations. The state initiative, passed when skyrocketing inflation...

    PHOENIX - A well-known New York pastor claims he has been compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message about an imminent and "earth shattering calamity." David Wilkerson told readers of his blog on Saturday that the calamity would be centered in New England, and then spread across the country, and around the world, part of what he sees as judgment from God, NewsChannel5 sister station KNXV-TV reported. "An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen," he wrote. "It is going to be so frightening, we are all going to tremble -- even the godliest among us." ....

    David Wilkerson Today ^ | Monday, March 9, 2009 | David Wilkerson
    “If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?” Recently I felt compelled to send out an URGENT message warning of an impending great calamity — such that will cause even God’s elect to tremble. One Bishop asked, “Is there no further word: How should the righteous respond to such a word?” I can only answer by sharing what the Holy Spirit is speaking to my own heart and what I am to do. I shared that I was led in a practical way to lay aside a month’s supply of food — because I have witnessed the panic...

    This day marks beginning of three weeks of mourning for fall of Jerusalem and loss of our holy Temple The 17th of Tammuz is a fast day commemorating the fall of Jerusalem, prior to the destruction of the Holy Temple. This also marks the beginning of a 3-week national period of mourning, leading up to Tisha B'Av. The 17th of Tammuz is the first of four fast days mentioned in the prophets. The purpose of a fast day is to awaken our sense of loss over the destroyed Temple - and the subsequent Jewish journey into exile. Agonizing over these...

  • A Calamity for Israel

    Washington Post ^ | January 6, 2006 | Charles Krauthammer
    The stroke suffered by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon could prove to be one of the great disasters in the country's nearly 60-year history. As I write this, Sharon's condition remains uncertain, but the severity of his stroke makes it unlikely that he will survive, let alone return to power. That could be disastrous because Sharon represented, indeed embodied, the emergence of a rational, farsighted national idea that seemed poised in the coming elections to create a stable governing political center for the first time in decades.
  • CA: The Minimum Wage Calamity

    As the year begins, we find Sacramento once again considering raising the minimum wage. Only this time, Governor Schwarzenegger has indicated he might support a bill raising the minimum wage to $7.25 next year, and $7.75 the year after. In the wake of high energy costs, high building costs, high liability insurance costs, and workers’ compensation reform that doesn’t reduce costs nearly as much as we need to, we cannot afford to drive up the costs of doing business in California even higher. Even if you do not pay the minimum wage to more than a handful of employees, the...

    SRINAGAR: The Indian army stopped work on a footbridge that would allow Pakistani earthquake victims to cross over into Indian Kashmir for relief after Pakistani soldiers objected, an army spokesman said on Wednesday. "We have stopped work on the footbridge after objections from Pakistani soldiers," Indian army spokesman Vijay Batra said. He said the bridge was being laid across the Kishan Ganga river in the northern Teetwal sector of Indian Kashmir to facilitate the passage of people from the Pakistani zone to one of three relief points being set up by India on the Line of Control (LoC), which divides...

    A Crucial Word for California Patricia King On the issue of California, when I was at the National Religious Broadcasters convention this February, we stayed in Anaheim and I ministered in L.A. For days I was vexed in my spirit. I kept thinking of Lot and how the Bible said his righteous heart was daily vexed because of living in the midst of unprincipled men. Everywhere I looked, I saw gross immorality, lust, and greed. I was filled with remorse and even felt sick to my stomach. One night, I woke up in the middle of the night and I...

    A Glimpse Ahead Timothy Snodgrass The Impossible Will Come Alive In 2005 01/28/05 In January of 2004, as we began to intercede for the New Year the Holy Spirit gave us the prophetic slogan, "The Seas will Roar in 2004". This year we were given a new slogan, "The Impossible will come Alive in 2005". As the veil of darkness begins to come down over nations and regions, along with great shakings will come great breakthroughs; signs, wonders, healings and a spectacular release of miracles in impossible circumstances. This year, although we are ultimately poised to gain much ground, there...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts. From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president.
