This blog centers on the 5G/6G technology, and delving into the question-is the Covid vaccines linked to these technologies, and are the vaccines the Mark of the Beast. There's much controversy about this, and debate. I personally believe it is. Below are articles and videos by doctor's, and professionals, who go into this in detail. The information is here for anyone to look into for themselves, and take it to prayer, and decide for themselves.
I've spent some hours going over the evidence about this again, and listening to the people who have medical knowledge about what these vaccines contain, and what they actually will do to the body when they are administered. After listening to them and a lot of prayer, I will say yes, I believe it is the Mark of the Beast. I won't try to go into all the reasons, because I am not a doctor, and do not want to try to describe what these vaccines are-the videos below by people who do have the qualifications-will explain it better than I could. If you take the time to listen to them, and have your bible in front of you in the book of Revelation, and pray-and ask the Lord to reveal the truth to you; He will.
They have made it clear that these vaccines will drastically and permanently change the body-and will change our DNA, which makes us who we are. I see the significance of this in God's eyes. I also see how they will permanently "Mark" every person, and make them trackable. I've studied the "Reset" the globalists are setting up now-and can connect the dots on how they intend to make us cattle to do their bidding, and eliminate those they don't want, by their depopulation agenda. These vaccines are all part of it.
Rev 13:16 And 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:
Rev 13:17 And 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.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
It's within the realm of possibility that the number of the mark 666, will be invisible to the naked eye-but trackable by scanning, and computer technology.
Why is it so important that you do not take this mark? Revelation ch. 14 teaches us:
Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
If you take this mark-your eternal destiny is hell, forever. Please, do not take it.
We are seeing the beginnings of the restrictions being put into place now. In Israel, they need to show proof of vaccination to do anything, including shopping. This is going to be pushed everywhere. I've posted videos from professionals on this, they want it world-wide.
Revelation ch. 15:2 speaks of those who are victorious over the beast, and his mark and his number-
Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
Rev 15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
I pray you are among that number.
World events are converging in "warp" speed. Yes, I believe we are in the biblical time frame of the Mark of the Beast, and this is what they are going to use it for.
The Four Horsemen are beginning to ride through the earth- we will see events become very chaotic, and famine in places that haven't known what it's like-yet. The U.S., will be among them.
If I'm proven wrong-I'll admit it. But, I do not believe I am wrong. I'll just wait, and see how it all plays out. I have no monetary purpose, nor am I seeking public approval. The purpose in stating this, is to make my convictions clear to the world, as a Believer in Christ, and standing with Him-unashamed.
I will not be taking the vaccines-and I strongly urge you to not take them. Instead-give your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ, and trust Him with your life. Take reasonable precautions for your health like you would for any cold/flu/virus, and take care of yourself and your health with a healthy diet and lifestyle. There's no reason to live in fear.
UNSAFE COVID19 WARNING Dr. Carrie Madej recent update NEW-The latest update from Whistleblower Dr. Carrie Madej on the Dangers of the new covid19 vaccines.
DR. CARRIE MADEJ - PLANET LOCKDOWN (FULL INTERVIEW)
"Project Rooftop: The Mark Of The Beast"- 9/15/20
"Spin" - 3/30/21- How the Covid vaccine will change DNA, connect those who take it to 5G/6G- inter-connect them with the beast system- it is the Mark of the Beast
Dr. Michael Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory who spent 32 years in the industry leading new medicines research and retired from the pharmaceutical giant with “the most senior research position” in his field, speaks-out about what he calls the coming carnage.
Pfizer's Former Vice President Sounds Multiple Alarms
The systems of technology are still working on getting 5G up and running, but before it's even in place, they are working on 6G-and are honest in stating they really do not know where it will take them. I have no scientific degrees, and don't pretend to understand their reasonings, in the human sense. But, I do see where this is going in the spiritual sense.
They are building a world system, without God. It's a world where man's achievements, and technology runs every aspect of your life-and you also, literally.
We are living in a world now that is very hostile to God, and those who follow him. Mainstream media and Hollywood put everything the world worships in your face-in movies, comics, cartoons, social media and the business world. Those who stand on their faith in Christ, are eliminated by the majority that rules. Many mega ministries use the same tactics, technologies, and strategies as the world does to achieve their goals, because they know it works. It doesn't really matter to many of them, whether it's ethically right to do the things they do- they have become blind, and money driven, and will use these technologies along with the world's system, to get ahead too. Greed and power are very strong influences in Satan's toolbox.
These technologies have a multitude of functions and the possibilities are seemingly endless-but the price is the human spirit, and soul. Materialism has saturated the planet, and any sense of real concern for the environment, and what these technologies are doing to us as people, is subdued, and silenced. The increase of censorship on every level has proven this out. Google, Facebook, other social media platforms and Youtube have been purging videos, books, internet platforms and anybody who's trying to warn about these dangers, and the science behind them.
This post is another attempt, because the Holy Spirit is still roaming the earth, seeking if anyone will heed the warnings-this is being put here for that purpose.
These technologies give speed of light connections at the touch of the finger-and access to a cyber world-that's not reality, they are images, and information fed to us, by people we will probably never know, and have no way of knowing if what they are putting before our eyes is the truth, or a lie.
In the book of Genesis ch. 11 it tells that the world was one language, and they schemed together to build a tower to heaven; the tower of Babel.
Gen 11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
It is likely that they built the tower as an observation point of the heavens; it was built “unto the heavens.” Most astrological and occult practices have a history back to Babel.
Looking down the lens of time to our day, I see these technologies as being done with the very same intentions, and goals. Satan's pride is the same now, as it was then. He wants total control of everything on this planet. However, these technologies come with a very high price-the highest being the human soul, and it's eternal destination. If Satan succeeds to saturate this planet in this wireless technology, and the people work like they did for the tower of Babel to get it-maybe this time it will work, and he'll achieve his goal-the destruction of mankind. He hates God, and he hates you, and believe me-that is his agenda.
With 6G technology, they are talking about hooking people up with every kind of device to the cyborg system- it is the Beast system talked about in Revelation. I'll let the reader do the research on this.
In this cyborg system-people will live and inter-act with images that aren't real, they are illusions-but your mind will tell you they are real. Isn't this just like the devil? Aren't we just about there now? The last several generations of TV, movies, and computer games has achieved the desired outcome-people are just about walking zombies. This will completely immerse them into a world of make-believe, and for those who lose the ability to discern the difference-mental illness will take on another level.
In this system inter-action with the principalities and powers of darkness will also be another part of this, that not very many are talking about, yet. Elon Musk, and a few others are speaking some concerns, and admit they don't know what they are getting into, but, it won't stop them from going ahead with this, because they are motivated by demonic influence. Power, pride, and egos are running this agenda, and the devil uses people with great intelligence to achieve his goals. Without God-people do what they do-because they are their own god.
The physical dangers to the human body, and the environment won't be allowed to be brought out, because the big corporations want it, and they have the power to shut down any voices that speak up about this. But, there are some still on independent platforms on the internet that are putting out the dangers, and information, trying to wake people up.
I've read and studied the bible many years, and can see where this is all going to end. Jesus is coming back-whether anyone likes it, or is ready for it, or not.
The earth has been damaged so much, the animals, trees, and atmosphere is so contaminated, that life on this planet won't be sustainable much longer. I've lost many trees in my own back yard-and see dead trees everywhere I go now. The forests are silent, almost no birds, or animals. Millions of fish in the oceans have washed up on shore dead, along with whales and dolphins. Fukushima has not been stopped-it's spewing out radioactive waste, and there's no end in sight. The condition of this planet is in peril, but few really understand the danger we are in-this is the Titanic, and we are sinking.
The greatest question I'd ask you is, if you died today-do you know where you'd go? At the end of this life-we will either spend eternity in heaven, or hell. I hope you will consider this, and that Jesus Christ is the answer to this, the only answer. By repenting, asking for His forgiveness of our sins, and surrendering your life to Him, whatever happens-you will have the peace and assurance of eternity in heaven. I pray you do, and will see you there.
There's several videos, and articles posted below on the 5G and 6G technology, for your research and information.
For those who are awake-this video will explain the untold story of the connection with the Covid pandemic-and this technology.
Understanding the Covid19 TESTS, "What is really in the Covid19 Tests? This is important information to know, and how these tests place nano-particles in the body-which then makes you trackable, patentable (yes, you will be owned), and connected to the "CLOUD" with the 5G/6G towers. When a person is tested-they are also vaccinated, and don't know it.
6G - Explained- https://youtu.be/AvcAovqG5Kk
The Future Of Wireless Communication | 6G- "The future of wireless communication is here, with 5G technology already in action in many parts of the world. But this is only the start as with increasing needs for high-speed high bandwidth communication, 6G will pave the way for wireless technology to get a complete makeover. With the rapid advancement in other fields of technology, the future of wireless communication will play a huge part in the execution of these associated technologies. We are looking at Brain-Computer Interface, Virtual Reality, Self Driving Cars, and more. With challenges ahead, the future of wireless communication will be an important factor that can completely transform us into a truly digital society."
Listen carefully to how he describes humans as being inter-connected to this system- humans will be integrated into the cyber world through this technology. How will they achieve this? In a nutshell, by inserting nano-technology into the human body, which 5G and 6G will be able to connect to-and you will be a part of the cyborg system. Dr. Carrie Madaj in the video below, explains the nano technology that's in the Covid vaccines-that will achieve humans being integrated into the system. That is what the vaccine push is really about. https://youtu.be/7cnVRfptVWM
Dr. Carrie Madej recent update NEW-The latest update from Whistleblower Dr. Carrie Madej on the Dangers of the new covid19 vaccines. Do NOT get the Vaccine without watching this video.
This is where technology is going-achieving making humans Trans-human. It is an Anti-Christ technology which will erase completely the knowledge, and connection to God. It is the implementation of the Beast system, and those who permit themselves to be integrated into this-will lose any desire to know God, or follow Him. Satan's plan is being set up at full speed, and the worlds system has given itself over to his scheme.

Tech Rant: Will 6G Destroy Human Society? The guy doing this video makes fun of those who are warning about the dangers of 5G, but he doesn't go into any of the actual science that proves the waves are dangerous-the military uses 5G technology as a weapon, so that tells you something. But his analysis of 6G is also a futuristic nightmare that nobody knows what it will really look like when they've set it up. Like he said, stay tuned-as the nightmare unfolds.
5G ACTS AS COVID, WARNS EX-VODAFONE EXEC- important video-However, I disagree with his idea of what we need to focus on-this is the implementation of the Mark of the Beast-it's time for God's people to look up, our redemption draws nigh. Come, Lord Jesus.

Secret Meaning Behind Super Bowl Half Time Show (2021)- In my book "The NightWatchman", I talk about the significance of how Satan uses masks in putting people in bondage, and that a Christian should never wear one. When I watched Fauci and the medical industry making masks mandatory during this pandemic-I knew exactly where it came from. Research the science of this virus; wearing one does not protect you from getting Covid, then study the information from doctors and professionals who prove the dangers of wearing masks-and realize the lies you are being told. Satan is putting you in bondage, and can give you permanent respiratory problems, and pneumonia if you submit to this scam-and that is his agenda-worldwide. The demons wearing masks in this half time Satanic ritual are telling you to your face-what they are going to do to you.

God's Word On The Issue
Below is scripture and commentary on where I believe we are now in history-if I'm proven wrong, I'll admit it-but this is what my spirit and eyes are saying to me; especially Rev. 9:20-that describes this world's condition perfectly.
Rev 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
(I recommend reading chapter nine in the bible-verses 1-21)
Commentary on Revelation 9:1-21
THE FIFTH AND SIXTH TRUMPETS
A. The fifth trumpet brings demonic locusts from the bottomless pit.
1. (Rev_9:1) A star fallen from heaven.
Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.
a. Then the fifth angel sounded: This is the fifth angel sounding a trumpet. There were seven seals, followed - thematically if not chronologically - by seven trumpets. In their arranged order, they are similar.
i. The first four seals and trumpets presented judgments directed against the earth. In the first four seals, these were the “four horsemen” bringing tyranny, war, famine, and death on the earth. In the first four trumpets, these were the ecological destruction of the vegetation, seas, fresh waters, and sky.
ii. The last three seals focused upon heaven: the cry of the martyrs, cosmic disturbances, and the heavenly prelude to the seven trumpets. But the last three trumpets will speak of hell, in terms of the demonic.
b. I saw a star fallen from heaven: The text clearly shows us that this star is a person (to him), not a literal star. The verb tense (fallen) indicates that he already had fallen.
i. But who is this star? Suggestions have included Nero, a fallen angel, an evil spirit, Satan, the Word of God, a good angel, or even Jesus Himself.
ii. In the context, this star is best seen as an angel; whether he is a good or bad angel depends on his relation to the angel of the bottomless pit in Rev_9:11. If the angel of Rev_9:1 one is the same as the angel of Rev_9:11, it is an evil angel - perhaps Satan himself. If it is a different angel, it may be a good angel sent by God to open up this bottomless pit for the purposes of judgment.
c. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit: That this star is fallen makes us associate him with Satan, or another high ranking evil angelic being. But the fact that he is given the key to the bottomless pit makes us not want to associate him with Satan. The idea that Satan is the “master of hell” is foreign to the rest of the Scriptures. He will be hell’s victim, not ruler.
i. At the same time, we notice that the key is given to this being, and that it is given at a specific time and for a specific purpose that furthers God’s plan. This angel - evil or good - serves God’s purpose, even if he does not intend to.
d. Where is the bottomless pit? The most straightforward answer is that it is in the center of the earth, because there, one might say that all is “top” and nothing is “bottom.” But the “bottomlessness” of the pit may be symbolic.
i. The abyssos is a prison for certain demons (Luk_8:31, 2Pe_2:4, and Jud_1:6). This is probably the same place as this bottomless pit. More generally, this place is considered the realm of the dead, the same as Hades (Rom_10:7).
e. Rev_9:1 is a good example of how the Book of Revelation is wrongly spiritualized in its interpretation. Some commentators say that the star is the word of God, the pit is human nature, and the lesson is that if the gospel is rejected, horrors are unleashed. But this is far from the plain meaning of Rev_9:1.
3. (Rev_9:2-6) Locusts from the bottomless pit.
And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
a. Out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth: These are obviously not “natural” locusts. They avoid plants and attack men like scorpions attack. They are “A visual representation of the hordes of demons loosed upon the earth.” (Walvoord)
i. The idea is simply that as part of the judgment of the great tribulation, God will allow demonic hordes, previously imprisoned, to descend upon the earth like a swarm of destructive locusts. They are not, as some have suggested, heretics, Muslims, Turks, Saracens, Jesuits, monks, or Protestants!
b. Those who have the seal of God on their foreheads (the 144,000 and perhaps more) are protected, but none other are. This is an inescapable judgment of God.
c. They were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months: Their purpose and period is expressly governed by God, and the purpose of all this to bring repentance (Rev_9:20-21).
d. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them: Death will offer no escape from this prolonged torture. Their power is described like the power of scorpions, and the bite of a scorpion, though extremely painful, is rarely fatal.
i. They will desire to die: The tormented ones want to die, as Paul did in Php_1:21-23, but for a completely different reason and result than Paul. For Paul, death led to eternal blessing, but for these tormented ones, death is a leap from the frying pan of present torment into eternal fire.
ii. The idea of “Death as an escape” is a demonic deception. The infamous murderers of Littleton, Colorado made chilling home movies before their killing spree. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold left behind a videotaped document spelling out their motivation. In the last segment of tape, shot the morning of the murders, Harris & Klebold are dressed and say they are ready for “our little Judgement Day.” Then Klebold, looking tense, says goodbye to his parents. He concludes, “I didn’t like life too much. Just know I am going to a better place than here.” What tragic deception to think - on the day you will commit terrible murders - that you will go “to a better place.” There was no escape in death for Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Now is the time of repentance, to escape from sin, and to be restored.
4. (Rev_9:7-10) The appearance of these locusts.
The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months.
a. The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle: Many attempts have been made to show that this is an accurate (though poetic) description of natural locusts. But this approach misses the obvious demonic connection.
i. Why would God call them locusts if they are not literal locusts, but demonic spirits who swarm and destroy like locusts? Among other reasons, because locusts are agents of God’s judgment. This is a consistent Old Testament figure in passages like Exo_10:4-14, Deu_28:38, 1Ki_8:37, 2Ch_7:13, Joe_1:4, and Amo_4:9.
b. Like horses . . . like gold . . . like the faces of men . . . like women’s hair . . . like lion’s teeth: The repetition of like indicates something other than a literal description is intended. The total impact of this picture is one of unnatural and awesome cruelty.
i. Suggestions that these locusts actually describe something such as the “helicopter gunships of the Antichrist” are interesting, but purely speculative, and don’t fit all the details.
ii. “There seems to be no alternative to concluding that God, satisfying the age-long desire of those wicked spirits to possess bodies of their own, has created bodies for them, bodies appropriate in demonic appearance to the character of the demonic inhabitants.” (Morris)
iii. “There can be no specific answer to the question of exactly who or what is symbolized by the plague of locusts. All we can know for sure is that in the period immediately before the end the wicked will be subjected to a time of unprecedented demonic torment. Exactly how this will take place will remain unknown until disclosed by history itself.” (Mounce)
5. (Rev_9:11) The leader of these locusts.
And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.
a. And they had as king over them: This is another indication that these creatures are not literal locusts. The Bible tells us that literal locusts have no king, and these do. Pro_30:27 says, The locusts have no king, yet they all advance in ranks.
b. Whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon: Their king is given a name. Abaddon and Apollyon both have the same thought of destruction or torment (perdition).
c. The angel of the bottomless pit: Since this is the king of these locusts, and since he has the name Abaddon or Apollyon, this is obviously Satan himself or another high-ranking leader of demons.
6. (Rev_9:12) The worst is yet to come.
One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.
B. The sixth trumpet: an army of destruction.
1. (Rev_9:13) A voice from the altar.
Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
a. I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar: In the tabernacle and temple of Israel, the golden altar was the altar of incense, which was a representation of the prayers of God’s people.
b. The four horns of the golden altar stood at each corner. Atoning blood was applied to the horns. From these horns, John hears a voice. In this, John recalls a persistent theme: the prayers of God’s people play a large role in the end-times drama.
2. (Rev_9:14-15) The angels and their mission.
Saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
a. Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates: These four angels have no necessary connection with the four angels of Rev_7:1. They may be the same four angels or they may not be. Whomever they are, they are prepared for the hour and day and month and year of the unleashing of this judgment.
i. Were released: “Most of Satan’s angels are yet free - being the principalities against which we wrestle, but some terrible offenders of high rank have been bound.” (Newell)
ii. This assumes these are “bad” angels; they may or may not be, but they probably are evil angels. No matter what, they are servants of the divine purpose.
b. Were released to kill a third of mankind: The demonic locusts described earlier in the chapter were restricted to tormenting mankind. But these four angels have the authority to kill on a massive scale.
i. These angels have a specific sphere of activity (a third of mankind), and are only activated in God’s timing. They execute God’s will in God’s timing.
c. The great river Euphrates: Why are these angels of judgment connected with the Euphrates River? The Euphrates was a landmark of ancient Babylon. It was the frontier of the Israel’s land as fully promised by God (Gen_15:17-21). It was also the boundary of the old Roman Empire, which will be revived under the Antichrist.
ii. The Euphrates is also associated with the first sin (Gen_2:10-14), the first murder (Gen_4:16), the first organized revolt against God (Gen_11:1-9), the first war confederation (Gen_14:1), and the first dictatorship (Gen_10:8-10).
3. (Rev_9:16-19) Description of the army led by these angels.
Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed; by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm.
a. The number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million: Is this number literal or symbolic? “It is possible that the number is not to be taken literally, but simply suggests an army that is impossible to count and is greater than anything mankind has ever seen.” (Hocking)
b. Breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone: They are given a weird, grotesque description. This is a powerful picture of horror, destruction and demonic association.
c. Does this speak of a natural or a supernatural army? An army of men or an army of demons?
i. If this describes a natural army of men, then the weird description might speak of modern, mechanized warfare. John may describe modern machinery in the only terms he can, and the result is this weird, grotesque, terrifying account.
ii. But, a human army this size has never been seen. The total size of all armies - on both sides - at the height of the Second World War was only 70 million. In 1965 China claimed to have an army and militia of 200 million, but this claim was doubted by many. Even if such an army was assembled, and marched towards the west, it is hard (but not impossible) to see such an army killing a billion or more people - a third of mankind.
iii. Therefore, perhaps the safest interpretation is to see this as a literal 200 million strong army, but a demonic army invading earth. This continues the idea of the demonic army like locusts described earlier in the chapter.
4. (Rev_9:20-21) The response of man.
But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
a. But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent: In general, mankind shows no repentance, despite the presence of some pretty overwhelming “signs and wonders.”
b. That they should not worship demons, and idols: Instead, man continues with his idol worship in a “business as usual” sort of way. They continue in their worship of demons, whether their worship is witting or unwitting.
i. It is amazing to see how quickly things return to “normal” after some calamity such as an earthquake. We are so quick to forget God’s lessons, even the lessons that come in judgment.
c. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts: This list of sins is a striking accusation against our present age. Certainly, our modern world is characterized by murders, sorceries (associated with the taking of drugs), sexual immorality and thefts.

'THEY ATE AND DRANK ....'
DESTRUCTION OF EARTH IS THE RESULT OF EXPERIMENTS ....
I've gotten some feedback about the prophetic message I gave in 2007 concerning Benjamin Netanyahu being chosen by God to become the Prime Minister of Israel again-which he did in 2009.
The remark was "how could God have given you a message that He was going to make him Prime Minister of Israel again, if He knew how dishonest he was, and why would he do it?" I was also asked if I had any prior knowledge or information on who Netanyahu was, that would give me the ability to speak a false prophecy-trying to promote myself as a prophet. I'll answer this here-and be as simple as possible about it.
The first time I ever heard of Netanyahu was in the spring of 2001, during a time of prayer. It was then that the Holy Spirit first began speaking to me of His intentions of raising this man up in leadership in Israel, and to make him a focus of prayer-and I did so; but kept it to myself. I didn't do any further research on him, I was too busy with my own life and responsibilities.
Six years later, the Lord began putting him on my heart in a greater sense again, and also that he was going to require me to speak a message concerning him in my church-I was not happy about this, and didn't say anything. I hoped I had heard wrong-and waited. However, the Holy Spirit placed Netanyahu on my heart to the degree-it was an every day heaviness in prayer for him. On January 7, 2007 I obeyed the commission given to me-and gave the message at an evening service, with the pastor's permission. I, along with him and those who heard it-waited to see what would happen. Benjamin Netanyahu was re-elected Prime Minister of Israel in February 2009; two years after the message was given.
I'm not a politician-and up until a few years ago, had not studied many political figures. I didn't know anything about him really-and had no agenda in getting him put into office. My only function in giving this message, was to obey the Lord, and leave it in His hands. That is all a servant of God is supposed to do, if they are called to do it.
Over the last several years, doing this phase of ministry, I've had to delve into the private lives, and the character of some world leaders, and our own political leaders-much of it sickens me. But, there's nothing new under the sun. The bible is full of kings, leaders and corrupt dealings among them-but, for God's own reasons he raises up those he chooses-and they aren't all believers in Him. In Daniel we are told of God's purposes in putting leaders in places of power, and He also takes them down:
Dan 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
Dan 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
Dan 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
Dan 2:23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.
God doesn't always give his servants the whole picture, just the parts he desires us to know, and leads us to pray, seek for deeper understanding, and only speak, when He says to. A lot of trouble with some prophets today, is they don't know when to stop speaking-they ought to pray more, and talk less-prophetically speaking. If your going to say something as "Thus sayeth the Lord"-you should have prayed about it a great deal, and be willing to put your life on the line for it.
A couple of examples of leaders God chose who were full of pride, arrogance, and brutality were Nebuchadnezzar and Herod the king of Israel during the time of the birth of Christ. Why did God put these evil men in power, when he knew what they were like?
It's not for me, or you to know right now. There's some things that will never be known in this life, until the whole picture is unfolded to us in eternity.
In regards to Netanyahu, I've gone back over his life recently, and read quite a few pieces of work on him-I believe the oppressions, abuse, and the death of his brother, along with the ongoing persecution of his country molded him and caused him to make wrong turns in life, and wrong decisions. The cruelty, and brutality of life can do this to a good person, and ruin them. When I've watched him over the last few years, my heart has been very heavy for him. I'm still praying he will turn to Christ-and receive Him as Messiah.
Going back to Nebuchadnezzar; In chapter 4 the bible tells about him having a dream, and being told the interpretation by Daniel, the he would be humbled by God for seven years, and eat grass like the beasts of the field-and it happened:
Dan 4:24 This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the most High, which is come upon my lord the king:
Dan 4:25 That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
Dan 4:26 And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule.
Dan 4:27 Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquility.
After the seven years ended-He was restored:
Dan 4:34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:
Dan 4:35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?
I believe he is in heaven now, because he repented, and humbled himself.
I'll find out when I get there.
Herod didn't have the same fate-He died in his sins and was eaten by worms.
The Death of Herod
Act 12:20 And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king's chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king's country.
Act 12:21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
Act 12:22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
Act 12:23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
These are two examples of evil men who God, for His own purposes-put them in place, and gave them the free choice to do either good or evil. Their lives, and what they did, contain many lessons-if people would learn them.
This is a long answer to the feedback given to me-but a needed one. I believe it answers the question adequately.
Update: Before the elections took place in Israel this year, the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart that Mr. Netanyahu would again be the next Prime Minister-when the elections took place, I watched the event, and the confirmation of what I was told. I was also told to say nothing, but just watch, and pray for God's will to be done. It has been.

This blog is going to contain a lot of links to articles and videos that expose a Tsunami of wickedness, sin, and debauchery that's been going on under the radar for many years-only because the media, which is a propaganda machine, does all it can to continue to cover for them to deceive people, and keep the delusions going. This blog is going to take off the masks, and lift the rug up, to uncover some of it. It will open a can of worms, and some of it will be hard to believe-I'll just advise everyone to do your own research, I'm not asking anyone to believe me, or follow me. I'm only interested in getting the truth out into the light-anyone who reads or views the content, can certainly check it out for yourself.
This is a world of illusion, lies, and deceit-and many in high places have learned all the tactics of hiding themselves and portraying an image they want to present to the public-and sadly many believe them. In this world today, some of these peoples achievements and accomplishments include:
Why am I posting this material?....because it may save a kid from being trafficked, it may save a life. It may cause somebody to wake up, and take off the rose colored glasses, and get mad enough to want to do something about this mess-and join those of us who've decided it's time to speak up-and expose these monsters for who they are. It may get somebody saved-nothing is impossible with God. But, I can't stay silent, I'll be held accountable for what I know someday, and will have no excuse for remaining silent-the truth must rise to the top.
WARNING--Anyone coming to this blog who has a problem with dealing with hard truths, and find it difficult to view or read without becoming very upset-you are better off not viewing the material here. But, if you are a person who wants to know truth, and can handle it-view with your own discretion. Some of the material is hard to watch/read, please take these warnings seriously. Much of it is not suitable for children. With that said-I hope this proves to be of value. More will be added, as I come across new material.

Adrenochrome The Leaked Documents Part One and Two
Interesting note: The Trump Tower in N.Y. city is right across from one of the places listed on the documents that harvest this- the woman narrating tried to brush it off, but I think this is very eye opening. Trump was at Epstein's pedo Island several times during his high days. I keep watching and listening-to get the dots connected. Personally- I don't believe he cannot know about this-and believe he's been in on it.
Watching and listening to him over the years-and the promises he made during his election (which he never did), makes me even more suspicious, and wouldn't be surprised if he isn't playing everybody as a great humanitarian in these child sex abuse cases and prosecutions, to cover his own butt. Time will tell.

Satanism and The History of The Satanic Panic- 2022 Shocking Documentary (Video)-VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES-NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN-I regret the profanity, but the information is important.
Age of Deceit-This 2011 documentary has been shared across the Internet for years, waking people up the reality of the socially-engineered world that we live in. Of course, it's banned on CIA-hatched Web sites like YouTube and Fakebook now. So I thought I would share it here, just to give them a tall middle finger. It asks the questions: is there a connection between UFOs, alien abductions, channeling spirits, demonic possessions, the new age movement, secret societies, and Satanism? It also takes Biblical look at the history of fallen angels and the relationship of that phenomena has to to the New World Order and the New Age Movement. The topics covered are the fall of mankind, the pre-flood world as Atlantis, the new age through theosophy, the fallen angels and their origin of planting the seeds to society, UFOs, ETs and abduction cases, demonic possession, channeling, and much more. The world wide problem of human sex trafficking of kids and people is connected with this documentary-because with these people's twisted view of utopia-it includes using people they consider to be inferior-as slaves, and commodities to be bought, used and thrown away. We can this see in their torture, abuse and harvesting of adrenochrome for their bloodthirsty demonic appetites. These beasts have no conscience or sense of the evil they are engaged in-they feel it's their right and privilege. Though the topic isn't brought up in this video-it can certainly be added to the mix of what their agenda is, and can easily see how it does. www.brighteon.com/7ce2f828-fc0b-40d8-b20f-d50e232e38e0
Note: It never takes long for the reactions to appear, concerning what I post here, and it's usually what I'd expect. Those who've been pushing the "we've got to protect the kids" narrative-suddenly go silent-and most free speech platforms do a blackout on the subject, because this post exposes some people they still want to promote: and they turn their attention on who the person is, in this case it's Trump.
I've learned the double-talk of many of them-and know the tactics they use to either promote, or ignore-and it shows a lot more than they realize. I don't pay any attention to those who push the "let's protect the kids" narrative, because the vast majority are only using the topic to benefit themselves. And, it exposes the truth that they really don't care anything about kids who are suffering and dying from sex trafficking, abuse, and these poison shots. It's really all about THEM. I've caught the "free speech" big names spewing false information that I knew was a complete lie-and still people follow them by the thousands. If I find anybody spreading false information, especially on important subjects that are life and death issues-I don't listen to them, or follow them anymore-and I don't care who they are. I'm not bought by anybody, and won't turn a blind eye-to keep somebody afloat. If I learn something I've posted here has been proven to be wrong-I delete it, and use it as a learning experience. Anybody else can do as they wish, but I'm not going to bend my convictions to appease people.
THE CLUB- But most people aren't invited into it-A compilation of what money, power, and knowing the right connections can do for somebody who's eyes are on wanting to be part of that club. They are people who have learned all the ways to get to the top, and stay there-and the lies, and debauchery they really live in. But, eventually it catches up with them-the wages of sin, is death. Many other's could have been put in this-but I ran out of room-it's a good example of who makes it into "The Club".
"A line in the sand" is a familiar phrase to define boundaries made in what a person will, or will not allow in their lives. Nations draw these boundaries also, fight over them, and move them when they change their stance on something or lose the ability to keep and hold that line. Russia and Ukraine are in a critical stand on that issue now-that could grow into a world conflict. This is a season that people should be taking this very serious-and defining their line in the sand now, while they have the time.
In an individual's personal boundaries, it depends on what you decide your willing to put up with from outside forces, or other people who try to force you to do something against your moral or ethical conscience, or abuse you in some way through disrespect, or physical abuse. There's a lot of people who live with no clear borders to their lives, and allow bullies, opportunists, criminals, and abusers of many kinds to run them, and ruin them. Those who are in the apathetic category, are also prone to allow other's to lead them around and govern their lives; it often proves to be a life filled with bad choices, and sad endings.
Watching developments unfold in this country has caused me to do some soul searching again, and make up my mind where I'm going to draw the line in the sand for my life, as it's coming closer to the end of my years. It's a good thing to do this a couple of times through the seasons of our lives; it's a part of "setting ones house in order" so to speak.
One of the benefits of age is being able to look back over our shoulder, evaluate some mistakes, wrong decisions, and the effects other people have had in our life, to help us make new boundaries. Age also gives a deeper understanding of what is truly important, and what isn't.
Looking back, I'm able to see many things I thought were so important then in my youth; were foolish, prideful, shallow and a waste of time. I'm thankful God's allowed me to live long enough to be able to evaluate like this, and make some changes, and ask for the Lord's forgiveness.
After considerable time pondering this with the Lord, it's come down to three areas that for me, are defining lines:
1. Whatever the world chooses; I choose the Lord. When Elijah confronted the people and false prophets on Mt. Carmel he said this to them:
1Ki 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
The condition of this nation, and the world is just as corrupt and drenched in idolatry today as it was in Elijah's day. It makes no difference whether it's in or out of the church; the word of God and faith in the God of Elijah is absent. I don't care how much money they have, how many programs they are involved in, how many people are in the seats. What's not there is holiness, righteousness, and a backbone to stand against the onslaught of evil that's right out in the open today, on TV, the internet, social media, the school systems, it makes no difference. You can hold up your bible and say "this is my bible" and say you believe it; really? Tell me where you stand on homosexuality, witchcraft, Satanism, abortion, fornication, adultery, drug abuse, pedophilia, child abuse, elder abuse, euthanasia, polygamy....., etc. Let's hear you read what the bible says about these topics, and preach it as it's supposed to be preached. But, I won't hold my breath; because these false teachers and preachers have long since become apostate. What matters to them is tickling the itching ears of the slumbering sheep and goats they feed on. It's money that motivates these people's teachings and preaching; one day they will answer for it. We are in the days of Judges when everyone did what was right in their own eyes, and this includes the religious crowd.
I already know the reaction to this; "Who are you, hypocrite, your unloving, contentious, and in rebellion." My answer to this is; I'm a blood-bought redeemed child of God, under the authority of Jesus Christ, my Lord-who called me, and all my allegiance is to Him, and His word. I direct my enemies and accuser's to Jesus, and ask you to talk to Him about me, I'd like to hear what He'd say to you. You see, I'm not a victim-I'm victorious, and that victory comes from Jesus Christ. I'm seated with Him in heavenly places-and there's nothing anybody can do about it, neither man or the devil.
As for being unloving; read the words of Jesus in the gospels, when he was talking to those who tried to trap him in his words all the time, and his accuser's-he was worse than me. Love, is like a burning fire in your bones-it's in those who burn for righteousness, and truth-and yes love, but a love unfeigned. I'll let you look up the meaning of that word-and study it.
I've been laughed at, and mocked enough over the years, to the point I've developed a hide like a rhinoceros; I don't care what people think of me. The word of God is the word of God, and it means what it says. If you can't or won't preach the whole counsel of God, you should be honest enough to change your title and just call yourself a motivational speaker, because that's what you are. Stop using God in your money making promotions. No, no one has to listen to me, or God, and it's obvious few do. But, I've read the end of the book, and know who wins in the end. I've paid very high prices over the years in this walk with God, and burned my bridges-I'm going on with Christ, to the end.
There's a remnant Body of Christ, and I'm among them. I choose Christ, and his holiness, whatever anyone else does is up to them. I'll close this topic with a verse you will never hear from the platforms of the mega churches:
1Pe 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
2. Just tell the truth. Sounds very simplistic doesn't it. Well open your eyes, ears, and begin to really pay attention to people today. Pay attention to how many times you find yourself being lied to, by people you interact with; business transactions, social gatherings, and everyday activities. The older I get, the more I see the effects of a society that has sunk to levels of degradation in many areas that used to be the foundations of a strong society. Honesty, integrity, being able to trust people when they spoke to you, and take for granted that what they were telling you was true. In the last several years I've had numerous disappointing business transactions, and lied to by those I had to interact with to try to get something accomplished. Tell me, once you've been treated this way, and know you've been lied to, do you ever trust the person or business again? If there is one thing I never want to lose; it's the ability to look myself in the mirror and not be ashamed of what I see looking back at me. I want my life to end at least knowing I haven't knowingly lied to someone, or mistreated them by my actions. Slander and backbiting go in this category also. Jeremiah describes the conditions of many peoples hearts today.
Jer 9:4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.
Jer 9:5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
Jer 9:6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
There were several occasions when I was growing up, when I'd go my parents and talk about someone to them; my father would look at me and say "If you have a problem with somebody-you need to go to them first, and talk to them face to face, not behind their back. Then, if they keep doing the same thing to you, then come to me or your mother. But don't gossip about them."
His words, stayed with me, and remain ingrained in my life to this day.
The instruction to us who follow Christ in this world of corruption is to put off the old man and his deeds:
Col 3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
Col 3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
Col 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
Col 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Try to imagine a world, and what it would be like, to never have to wonder if the person talking to you, is lying to you or not.
3. Walk the rest of this life in freedom and peace; regardless of my circumstances. I may not be able to control the circumstances around me, or what other people do, but I can control myself. I can decide what and who I'm going to allow to influence me. I can take control of myself, and make choices that will honor God, and bring peace and stability to me. These kinds of choices builds strength of character, and soul. In the end, that's really all that matters. When I stand before the Lord, what have I done with the life he's given me, and how I've taken care of this soul that God created, that makes up my person-hood, and if I've been a faithful servant of His. Nothing else is more important than this.
On a national scale, the drawing the line in the sand is going on here now by many; and it's becoming very apparent.
There are people in high places of power today who are working hard to take away many of the freedoms people in this country have taken for granted. Many are watching the warning signs develop, laws that govern this nation are being corrupted, and the implications are dire. Those who want to dissolve the Constitution are very busy with their agenda, and it will be opposed only by those who see the the truth, that this will mean the end of this country as we know it. Whether there is enough inner strength of true Americans to overturn this Tsunami of socialist propaganda, is a serious question. In watching Canada falling into tyranny, and now Trudeau using tactics of a dictator, it's revealing the direction he is taking-a totalitarian government-and we will see it coming here next.
Whether this country stands or falls will depend on how we go about it, and if enough people recognize the fact that sin causes judgment from God. This country needs to come back to God, and His word, repent and turn away from the sins that we have allowed to entrench this society. If we don't, this country won't stand. But, with sadness, I realize that the vast majority of the people do not see the inter-connection between the chaos destroying their countries-that it's the result of escalating sin, corruption, wickedness, lawlessness and godlessness. It's the result of many years of rebellion, sin, and rejection of God. We are reaping, what we have sown.
The answer to the countries dilemma is in the scripture verse below:
2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
The question is, will this country as a whole, repent and turn back to the Lord-my eye's and ears tell me no-we are in the end of days. People will get saved, but not on a national scale, I'm praying for the Holy Spirit to reach as many people's hearts as possible, before the Lord returns, and for God's sustaining protection over His people, and to give them strength and courage to endure to the end.
Whatever other's do, I choose Jesus, wherever He leads. I've gone too far with Him, to go back now.
I will finish my course-and keep the faith.
Vermont-the green mountain state. Known for it's beautiful mountains, green pastures with dairy cattle, sheep and horses dotting the landscape. A place of rugged beauty, and diversity.
Over the years there's been changing developments that are unfortunate, and unnecessary. A couple of them will be addressed here.
A growing number of landscapes littered with junk, of every sort. The once green open fields and pastures have become open junk yards, and goes on into the forests, and along the streams, and rivers. It's becoming a troubling sight, in just about every area of the state.
There's also been an increase of junk and litter surrounding houses, and homes. It's troubling for a number of reasons. It's detrimental to the neighbors, and the township. It can damage the value of your property, if the surrounding lands are an eyesore, and can make a difference in the ability of getting the price your property is really worth, if the land of others around you is unkept.
The reasons people do this to their property are varied. Perhaps a serious illness that causes the owner to be unable to maintain the upkeep, or working many hours, and not being home enough to cope, too many hours doing things that take away from the responsibility of keeping up the home. A lot of times, it's plain laziness.
Sometimes it's done out of spite, from harboring grudges with those around them. Those who do this cause the most damage to themselves; but it also succeeds in the depreciation of the land, and value of other's property, and destroys the beauty that Vermont has been, and should be known for.
The comparisons in the pictures are a stark reality-Vermont, as it was-is disappearing, and the contrast is sad-and the worst part is-it's unnecessary.
What Does the Bible Have To Say About Sloth
Pro 6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Pro 6:7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
Pro 6:8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
Pro 6:9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
Pro 21:25 The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.
Pro 23:20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
Pro 23:21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
Pro 24:30 I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;
Pro 24:31 And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.
Pro 24:32 Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.
Pro 24:33 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
Pro 24:34 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.

The Beauty of The Vermont-New Hampshire Mountains Rapidly Disappearing
Along with this growing problem above-now you can ride along the highway, or in my case, even look out your back yard from your deck-and see a once beautiful ridgeline of mountains-now filled along the entire range-with wind turbines. The beautiful view of the natural landscape you once had-is now gone forever; and they will keep putting up more as time goes by. Add to this, the increasing fields of solar panels taking up the land that were once open fields and pastures; Vermont's landscape is permanently changing, and for many of us, not for the better.
Regarding wind turbines, consider the dangers and disadvantages:
1) Dangers to some wildlife-Wind turbines are known to pose a threat to the wildlife. Flying birds and bats whose habitats or migratory paths could be injured or killed if they run into the blades that turn on the fanlike structure of wind turbines when they are spinning. The deaths of birds and bats are a controversial subject at wind farm sites, which has raised concerns by fish and wildlife conservation groups. Aside from the wildlife that flies through the air, wildlife on the ground may also affected by the noise pollutions generated from whirring blades.
2) Noisy-wind turbines can be quite noisy, which is why they’re mostly found in very rural areas where most people don’t live. However, for those who do live in rural areas-this has presented problems, and disturbances of various kinds.
3) Expensive upfront cost-If you can imagine, these massive structures are often hundreds of feet tall and require substantial upfront investment. The placement of wind turbines in rural areas requires further investment in underground lines to send power to more populated areas like towns and cities where it’s needed.
4) Unreliable/unpredictable-wind energy suffers from what is called intermittency, which is a disruption caused by the inconsistency of the wind itself. Since wind can blow at various speeds, it’s hard to predict the amount of energy it can collect at a given time. This means suppliers and cities need to have an energy reserve or alternative sources of power in case the winds die down for longer lengths of time.
5) It's a permanent elimination of the natural landscape-Once these turbines are installed and running-the natural landscape is permanently destroyed. When they break down-the money needed to repair them, and keep them running efficiently is another unpredictable issue.

Solar Farms and Wind Turbines-A Troubling Change of Landscape
On researching about solar farms, the concerns are many. They take up a lot of space, once the land is gobbled up, it's gone forever to solar panels. The degradation of the habitat environment. The animals, birds and insects are losing on every front, from these technologies.
The health risks to people is a serious factor. Some people suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity, which can lead to health problems ranging from mild to severe. An article below goes further into this.
If people are being affected by these solar farms-what are they doing to the animals, livestock, and insects; the implications are not good. I've read many articles of mass deaths of birds and wildlife, due to so much they are bombarded with, from the technologies people are using with no regard to the consequences. The world as a whole, is being decimated.

The View From My Deck-Before the Wind Turbines Were Put On The Ridgeline
In summary, the landscape of Vermont is changing in a critical way, and for many reasons; and the results are troubling.
When God created Adam, and put him in a beautiful garden to take care of it, and tend to it, it was a representation of the responsibility he gave mankind-to care for the earth and maintain it.
Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Gen 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Gen 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
But God also told him and the woman he created to not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but they rebelled.
Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Down through time, rebellion and covetousness have been two sins Satan uses a great deal, to achieve his goals, and uses people to destroy each other, and everything around them.
This only sounds extreme, to those who refuse to really open their eyes, and see with discernment, and face reality.
When Adam listened to Eve, and ate the forbidden fruit, sin entered into them, and corruption and decay immediately began-both within them, and the earth also.
Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Gen 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Gen 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Gen 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
Gen 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
Gen 3:9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
Gen 3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
Gen 3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
Gen 3:12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
Gen 3:13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
Gen 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Then God rebuked them both, and they were cast out of the garden:
Gen 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
Gen 3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
Gen 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
Gen 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Gen 3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
Gen 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Gen 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
When I gaze over the landscape of Vermont, and the world, I realize that the struggles, and attempts of man to survive and maintain the earth by depleting it's resources goes all the way back to the rebellion in the garden. If it had never happened, none of these problems would exist now.
This is the results of thousands of years of man's attempt to maintain a fallen world by their own means, and own imaginations, and the results always ends the same; decay, rust, depletion of the resources of the planet, and death. The wages of sin, is death.
Below is a poem that describes the state we're in very well. The author has very keen eyes, and deep discernment.
THE WAY OF THE WORLD
by Peter Fraser
Children dying with tears in their eyes,
Starvation and filth are Satan's disguise.
His short time of rule is drawing near,
The way of the world is constant fear.
Our youth using crime to rule the night,
Lawlessness and vice, the Deceivers delight.
The populace shivers with nowhere to hide,
The way of the world is stubborn pride.
The elderly living in squalor and slums,
Despair and distrust are the Enemies guns.
Our social strata is based on neglect,
The way of the world is disrespect.
Parents who's children can have a free reign,
Laziness and sloth are the Serpents domain.
Discipline's crumbling and order's gone hence,
The way of the world is indifference.
World leaders who bleed their countries dry,
Greed is the apple of Lucifer's eye.
So many who strive for the biggest slice,
The way of the world is avarice.
Scientific advances for comfort and joy,
Modern technology is the Devil's toy.
We move further away from God's plan for his nations,
The way of the world is segregation.
Evolution is taught in our uni's and schools,
Falsities and lies are the Dark Prince's tools.
We explain away our sickness and schism,
The way of the world is humanism.
But now some good news, we need it I think,
After being oppressed by society's stink.
Jesus is coming in not days but hours,
To the Lord goes the victory, eternity is ours.
Satan, with the assistance of spiritually blind mankind, has created the unfortunate circumstances all men have to live in while on this world. Pick up a newspaper and the proof of our sad state of affairs is right under our noses. But despair not saints, for Jesus said that all these things must occur before the end of time. With this in mind, knowing that the time of the Lord is upon us, we should try harder than ever to clean out our houses, so the Lord will enter and sup with us and not pass us by.
Vermont will never be what it was before these technologies started taking over. And, as much as I'd like to believe people will change and care more about the world around them, and each other; I'm not seeing it happen-we are on a collision course, with the destruction of the land, the wildlife-and no regard for each other. Don't believe me, do your own research-I encourage you to. If you do, you'll have your eyes opened, and once you are awake, you'll never be the able to not see the truth again.
But, I've also read the end of the Bible. Jesus is going to return, and when He does, He will once again go into creation mode, and form a new heaven, and a new earth. It must be this way-we have just about destroyed this one.
I'm looking forward to it, with great anticipation.
The New Heaven and the New Earth
Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Several years ago I came across some bible teachers who say there are people spreading a false gospel, and they call it a "second gospel". There are those who state there is no need to go through a prayer of salvation, or repentance to receive redemption-but only believe on the Lord Jesus and you'll be saved. You could go back and forth for a long time-and argue the point, but I'm going to take a few verses that dispute these claims and let the reader come to their own convictions.
I have no personal dispute with these folks, but, what does scripture teach about this, without compromise.
The most important scripture Jesus ever spoke concerning himself, is in the gospel of John ch. 14:6:
Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
This one verse describes who Jesus is, and the fact that He is the only way to salvation-there is no other; and He is the only way to access to the Father.
On the day of Pentecost, after Christ had risen from the dead Peter preached to the crowd of about 3,000 assembled there and proclaimed this:
Act 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
Act 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
I've heard some teach that Peter was only preaching to Jews-that no Gentiles were present-how do they know that? According to Acts ch. 2:4-11, when the Holy Ghost fell on those in prayer-those standing around heard their own tongues and languages being spoken, including Arabians, Crete's, Egyptians etc.-they were not all Jews.
Peter was calling both Jews and Gentiles to repent-and be baptized for the remission of sins. I do not hold to anyone saying we can "just believe" and be saved. James tells us that the demons believe, and tremble.
Jas 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
According to 1John 1:7-10:
1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1Jn 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1Jn 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
There are those who teach that when Jesus was preaching before his death-he was only referring to the Jews needing to repent, and that voicing repentance isn't necessary in Paul's gospel. The verses spoken above in 1John disputes this teaching.
Paul states the gospel clearly in ICor. ch. 15:3-6
1Co 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
1Co 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
1Co 15:5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
1Co 15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
When Paul was standing before Agrippa giving his testimony, he spoke of his mission to preach to both Jew and Gentile, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
Act 26:19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
Act 26:20 But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
When I was alone in my house over 45 years ago I simply said "Lord, I know I've done so much, have sinned so greatly-there's no reason for you to love me, but if you would forgive me, please come into my heart and life and help me live for you." It included repentance, and simply acknowledging Jesus as Lord-and I knew He had answered that prayer, and I was saved.
A last point: there are also some who teach predestination-that some are predestined to be saved, and other's predestined to be damned. My stand on this is; God knows everything, at all times. He knows those who will repent and be saved, and who won't-but He does not intrude on anyone's free will. The door is always open for anyone to change, to turn around, and come to Jesus for salvation. Paul, a persecutor and murderer of Christians, before his conversion on the road to Damascus is a good example of the power of God to change any life. I'm in the same category-only the power of Jesus Christ, could save me, and change me; and He did. Jesus taught that "whosoever will-may come":
Mat 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Paul also emphasizes the open door of salvation to whosoever:
Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
If predestination is to be adhered to-why does scripture through Paul proclaim the importance of preaching the gospel?
Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
This tells me, whoever you are, if you know Christ as Savior-you are called to be a witness, and tell other's of the power of Jesus Christ to save, and heal. Then, leave the results to God.
The preacher/evangelist who truly cares for your soul, will preach the Gospel as it's written in the bible, regardless of the reactions. Ministers are just people, who God has chosen to work for Him-they aren't perfect. When they are preaching-the question to ask is- is it in the bible, is it scriptural, is it consistent throughout the bible. Is the preaching pointing you to Jesus Christ-or themselves.
It's the word of God preached, that convicts of sin. If the word of God is preached without compromise-it will either bring the sinner to repentance, or cause a riot- and persecution; the book of Acts gives accounts of this fact.
The bible teaches us all have sinned:
Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
One sin, one lie, one stolen item, is all it takes, to put us on the road to hell. That is why Jesus came-to pay the sin debt, we could not pay.
Jesus showed by example-that though he was a King-he became a servant, even unto death, the death of the cross. He was all love-but the world rejected Him. Most in the world reject him today. But, for those who humble themselves, admit their sinners, in need of a Savior and come to him in honest repentance-He will in no wise cast out. He will come into your heart and life, and begin to do the work of transformation, and renewing your mind and soul, into His image-it's a lifelong journey. He loves you, and has prepared a place for you to be with Him in heaven, if you will open your heart, and let Him in.
Joh 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
The graphics of the Gospel that are posted here, include the most important truths, according to scripture, of who Christ is, why He came, and a simple prayer to help anyone who desires to open their heart to Jesus, and be born again.
It's my prayer you will make that decision today. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow.
Some added teaching from commentaries:
1 John 1:8-10
If we say that we have no sin. To say that we have reached a sinless state in which we no longer need the blood of Christ to cleanse us is a deception. This language is in square opposition to the claims of the "Perfectionists" of all ages.
If we confess our sins. Instead of affirming that we are sinless we should confess our sins.
Faithful and just. If we confess our sins the Lord will be faithful to his promise of mercy, and just in requiring us to have the atonement of Christ, to forgive us our sins.
If we say that we have not sinned. God says we have sinned. He declares "There is none righteous; no, not one." Hence, if we affirm that we are sinless we make God a liar. B.W. Johnson comm.
If we confess our sins,.... Not to one other; for though it is our duty to confess our faults to our fellow creatures and fellow Christians which are committed against them, yet are under no obligation to confess such as are more immediately against God, and which lie between him and ourselves; or at least it is sufficient to confess and acknowledge in general what sinful creatures we are, without entering into particulars; for confession of sin is to be made to God, against whom it is committed, and who only can pardon: and a man that truly confesses his sin is one that the Spirit of God has convinced of it, and has shown him its exceeding sinfulness, and filled him with a godly sorrow for it, and given him repentance unto salvation, that needeth not to be repented of; and who, under such a sight and sense of sin, and concern for it, comes and acknowledges it before the Lord, humbly imploring, for Christ's sake, his pardoning grace and mercy; and such obtain it: John Gill comm.
Righteous Forgiveness 1 John 1:8-9
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.—1Jn_1:8-9.
1. These words sum up the great characteristic aim which distinguishes Christianity from every other system and institution on earth. The object of education is to get rid of ignorance. The object of medicine is to get rid of disease. The object of Socialism (at least, according to many of its advocates) is to get rid of poverty. But the object of Christianity is to get rid of sin. The Gospel lays its finger on moral evil as the real mischief and misery of the world. Compared with the supreme curse of human selfishness, nothing else seriously matters. And accordingly the Gospel proposes to cure this inward malady of the soul. Herein, it stands apart from other religions. As Amiel said, “The prayer of the Buddhist is, ‘Deliver us from existence’; the prayer of the Christian is, ‘Deliver us from evil.’ ”
