"If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they."
Perverting Of Judgment
Greetings. "Look at the world today. Is there anything more pitiful? What madness there is. What blindness. What unintelligent leadership. A furiously racing mass of bewildered humanity, strengthening, not in wisdom but in vulgar passions, crashing headlong into each other, motivated by greed and propelled into brutality. The time must come when evil will destroy itself."
"When the day comes that the world begins to look for a new life, it is our hope they may find it here in Shangri-La. Here we shall be with our way of life based on one simple rule--love. And it is our hope that Shangri-La's brotherly love will then spread throughout the world. And when the strong have devoured each other, then at last the meek shall inherit the Earth."
No words more perfectly describe the global plight of today and yet they were written almost 60 years ago by the late James Hilton [1900-1954] to express the philosophy of the High Lama of Shangri-La, his classic novel, Lost Horizon .
In the madness that is the world today, the injustice, the wars, the inequality amongst man, the corruption, the greed etc. we can find solace in knowing He knows what is happening and will some day soon return to right the wrongs that evil men have wrought upon this world through their lack of love and concern for others.
"The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good." (Proverbs 15:3)
Chapter five of the book of James nailed it when he said, "Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."
Job also said, "He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression." (Job 36:15) We just need to hang in there and continue on by faith knowing that the day is coming when "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea."(Isaiah 11:9)
We hope you will find the following articles and videos informative and faith building. Although we have included videos which display 'End Time' beliefs of other faiths and religions it does not necessarily mean we adhere to these beliefs ourselves.
God bless and keep you in the week ahead.
Prophets, Planets and Physicists Align On California Quake
25 March 2011 20:24
by Zen Gardner
Several stories have been running about the likelyhood of a significant California quake sometime very soon. In addition to the increased overall activity around the Ring of Fire preceding and following Japan's mega quake, USGS geologist Jim Berkland (watch HERE) and the Russian Institute of Physics and the Earth are forecasting an event specifically in the western United States.
Influences on the earth include a disturbed magnetosphere and axis shift, greatly increased solar activity and a recent "super moon" where the moon has been the nearest to earth in 18 years.
*Ring of fire
But more things are lining up
Between March 28th and June 9th several alignments will be taking place in our solar system, exerting extra pull on our planet. - - Feb 23, 2011: Jupiter and Saturn, the two largest planetary bodies in the solar system, stood directly opposite to one another across the sun. (Christchurch New Zealand quake was the 22nd!) - - March 28th: the earth passes between Jupiter and Saturn with them still one degree from being directly opposite across the sun. (3 days from the time of the this post..) - - April 3rd: the earth moves between the sun and Saturn at the new moon. Late that day there is a close line up of the sun, the moon, the earth and Saturn. - - April 6th: the sun moves between Jupiter and the earth. - April 9th: Mercury moves between the sun and the earth.
Definitely something to take into account and keep an eye on.
Here's an alignment to look out for.
What the Prophets Say
"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring." Lk. 21:25
"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall - be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles.." Mk. 13:8
Pretty clear there.
Edgar Cayce, America's "sleeping prophet" spoke about a cataclysm involving California at the turn of the century.
"The first sign of this change in the Earth's core would be the 'breaking up of some conditions' in the South Pacific and "sinking or rising" in the Mediterranean or Etna area. Cayce forecast that, by the end of the century, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco would be destroyed.
Edgar Cayce said that "the greater portion of Japan must go into the sea" at this time. Source
Will it get much worse in Japan? Will the sinking radioactive materials cause more cataclysms? Hang in there...
The Hopi Prophecies according to one post (the Hopi are beautiful, spiritual people):
There are lots more prophecies, but that's a taste of prophetic mentions of a coming California quake. Keep searching.
The media seems to be finally acknowledging these drastic changes:
Even Newsweek is getting the drift...whoduthunk?
What About A Dwarf Sun, Nibiru or Nemesis?
Good questions. Lots of scientific confusion and cover up here as well. One minute they're reporting spotting these things, next minute silence. One can only be led to believe there is something entering, or soon to enter or pass nearby our solar system that we're not being told about. Look 'em all up, people.
If that truly is the case, tectonic activity is a given. With lots more to come.
A large body coming towards or passing our home solar system would also explain the increased asteroid activity being slung out of the oort cloud towards earth. The coming galactic alignment in the precession of the equinoxes is another big factor.
But it's hard to determine what are causes, what are effects, and what's the difference?...(there's some Zen...;)
CERN and HAARP Insanity
Just in case there isn't enough madness to go around, the idiot PTBs have to tinker with the planet's natural controls. The CERN particle colliding facility in Switzerland was firing up again the very day of the Japan quake.
Shiva statue, occult god of destruction, at CERN facility..a little "giveaway"?
And no one really knows what the mad HAARP idiots seem to fire this mega high frequency plasma generator for. We can only speculate and "reverse engineer" their intentions by dot connecting. But it too apparently was running the day of the Japan quake.
All we know is it can't be for anything good and has every nasty capability you can imagine.
(You'll notice the PTB's are also taking advantage of this vibrational shake up with invasions on the Middle East while undermining the world's economy, blanketed by a mass media hypnotic cover up of what's really happening. They don't play nice.)
What's wonderful is it's a living, amazing Universe of which we are an integral part, with a consciousness that is waiting to be explored and utilized. This little expletive of desperate entities exploiting natural changes will not last long, so don't fret or be discouraged.
Peace will reign. It does even now behind the violent foreground. Remember that.
(...and as for me? I'm peacefully preparing, packing and planning accordingly...on to greater synchronicities....)
In Pre-Qaddafi Libya, the US Supported the Rich While the Poor Went Barefoot
Shirley Frederick, Truthout, 25 March 2011 - From 1961-1964, I lived in Libya, then one of the poorest countries in the world. It was before Qaddafi, a time when King Idris was in control. My husband was stationed at the American-controlled Wheelus Air Force Base and I taught school there.
We lived in Tripoli, a city full of slums. Just behind our apartment, were people living in shacks made of old road signs, pieces of discarded corrugated metal and palm leaves. It got cold in the winter; a lot of people died and there were funeral processions in the streets. No running water for those people. They drew water from shallow wells and went into the bushes to relieve themselves.
The cinder block city homes had running water, but not during the day. We depended on a water tank on the roof that filled up at night if there was enough pressure in the system. No one I knew had a phone. They were very expensive and you had to pay a bribe to get one. Transportation for most Libyans was by donkey cart or on foot. Men and women wore long, white robes called barracans. Women in public were completely covered except for one eye hole, and they rode in the back of the bus.
Old men lay on the streets, each covered with a blanket, extended hands holding begging cups. Horse heads and hooves outside butcher shops were for sale. Milk in glass jars salvaged from dumps was delivered by donkey cart to those who could pay. The men who worked in the salt flat had no shoes and feet like leather. Barefoot boys begged for cigarettes.
The king lived in a large and very beautiful palace, had a second palace in Benghazi and was building a third for the crown prince. Family members and cronies drove around in black Mercedes and lived in large villas. They went up to Monaco to drink, gamble and be entertained by women--all forbidden by Muslim culture.
When the queen did her shopping at the base exchange, it was closed for her convenience so she could buy expensive gifts unseen by all but her guards. My husband, an air policeman, was one of those guards. When she needed kidney stone surgery, she was taken to the base hospital, where she went to the head of the line. I was there at the time, giving birth to my first child. The nurse said my obstetrician would not be present for the delivery because he was operating on the queen.
The money that supported this opulent lifestyle came from oil. The oil fields were controlled by the Americans, the Brits and the Dutch. A second source of the king's revenue was the millions of dollars the American government paid to operate the base and send squadrons of fighter jets out over the desert for bombing practice.
When I arrived in Libya, I wanted to take a class in Arabic, but my military adviser recommended Italian instead because, he said, "If you go to Egypt or Lebanon and speak with a Libyan accent, the people will know you are from Libya and will not respect you." Libya was seen a place of desert tribes and little culture. Egypt, on the other hand, was greatly admired. I can still see pictures on Tripoli walls of Gamal Nasser. He was especially admired by a young military officer named Qaddafi, who, one day in 1969, overthrew King Idris by staging a bloodless coup.
Qaddafi immediately kicked out the Americans, the British and the Italians--all seen as imperialists. (Libya was an Italian colony under Mussolini.) He nationalized the oil wells; piped water from the large aquifer under the Sahara to coastal cities; built housing, schools and hospitals; paved streets and allowed women more freedom.
Unfortunately, Qaddafi's desire for power outweighed his concern for his people. He wanted to be the new Nasser and tried to unify the Arab world under his leadership. But Libya was seen as a backwater by other Arab nations and Qaddafi as too inexperienced, impulsive, brash, unpredictable, self-absorbed. They didn't take him seriously, and that led to the ever more outrageous behavior that continues to this day.

545 vs. 300,000,000 People
-By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.
The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?
John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts - of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ...
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

The number one health destroyer is all natural
By Mike Bundrant
March 30, 2011
It is linked to nearly every major disease and multiple non-lethal conditions that plague us. Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, high blood pressure, peptic ulcers, headaches, chronic anxiety, depression and addictive disorders that foster unhealthy lifestyles are all scientifically linked to chronic stress. In fact, over 50 conditions have been correlated with high stress lifestyles. Even obesity and all the health issues that flow from it, is believed to be a direct result of chronic and excessive stress.
No organ system is immune to the effects of stress. Here is a brief and partial synopsis of the damage stress can do to the body:
Hair: Excessive hair loss and premature baldness are linked to excessive stress
Skin: Eczema, psoriasis, hives, excessive blushing and sweating are linked to stress
Digestion: Stress is known to cause gastritis, colitis, stomach and duodenal ulcers, IBS and other digestive disorders.
Heart: Cardiovascular disease, hypertension, high blood pressure are linked to cumulative stress.
Mouth: Ulcers and excessive dryness of the mouth can be stress related.
Muscles: Stress may cause tightness, soreness, spasm, aching, lower back pain, twitching and muscular tics.
Lungs: Shortness of breath, panic disorder and exacerbation of asthmatic conditions are linked to stress.
Brain: Stress causes psychological conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, irritability and even personality changes.
Reproductive organs: Menstrual disorders, vaginal infections, premature ejaculation and impotence can be stress related.
Chronic, overwhelming stress may be the number one plague of modern life. How does it work? Stress activates a chain of hormonal events. We've all heard of the fight-or-flight mechanism. Consistent mental and emotional stress fires up this response system and keeps it active in an ongoing way. The results are staggering. Here is what the Mayo Clinic has to say:
"The long-term activation of the stress-response system--and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones--can disrupt almost all your body's processes."
If you don't get a handle on your chronic stress in a personally noticeable way, such that you can feel the difference in your body each and every day, rest assured it is doing damage daily. Low stress people live longer. Highly stressed people live shorter lives.
A 2005 study headed by Dr. Elissa Epel at the University of California, San Francisco drives this point home. CBS News Correspondent Scott Pelley, who followed the study closely, reported that stress speeds aging at a cellular level by damaging your DNA. In a sense, stress creates chaos that affects your chromosomes.
Of the stressed out participants in the study, Dr. Epel remarked, "It was as though there had been in excess of 10 years of extra aging in these individuals' blood cells. And that's a very conservative estimate."
What to do? Reduce your stress. Stress reduction can be approached in different ways. There are practical, external methods to consider:
Get organized. Organizing your home, office and your schedule can have a dramatic impact on your level of stress.
* Cut back. Take an honest look at your work, family, home and community responsibilities. Have you taken on too much? Are you able to enjoy your personal commitments?
* Delegate. Whose help can you enlist to get things done?
There are also internal methods for reducing stress that involve managing your mind and body. They involve mediation or prayer, cognitive behavioral approaches, deep breathing, and so on. Choose something that actually makes you feel relaxed in an ongoing way. If you can't feel the difference, there isn't any!
In the Cal State San Francisco study, the mothers who knew how to cope with stress didn't suffer the same cellular damage, regardless of how hectic their lives were.
Dr. Epel said, "It appears that resilience can ward off sickness and let us live longer, while those who feel overwhelmed by life may have a shorter one to live."
"I think that this is yet another call to people to be alarmed about their stress levels," Epel continued, "and to take them seriously. The cell is not a closed system. What happens in the mind, in particular, perceptions of stress, can indeed affect the most fundamental unit of our physical beings." (Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. (Isaiah 26:3)
