Historic Floods Sink Cars in Arizona

When one thinks of Arizona we think of a dry desert.  Sunny, hot and dry during the day and cold at night Deserts are usually places of little rain.    In these end times we are seeing another first, historic floods in Arizona.   CNN shows an unbelievable photos of submerged cars in their Article Flash Floods Slam Arizona. ,  Godaddy, based in Arizona stated in their voice mail that there would be longer wait times due to the floods in Arizona which affected employees ability to go to work.

The last thing one thinks of is a flooded desert, but such is the case of living in the end times where what we thought was impossible, is now possible nature wise.   Check out this photo by MSN of a highway that got wiped away with a car sunk deep into mud. These are some unbelievable photos!

These weather events are going toe to toe with earth’s inhabitants who are committing deeds that we also never would have imagined in their depravity and immorality.  

In case you have not noticed the unusual severe weather, I am now pointing it out to you.  The media has dubbed it “extreme weather.”  Only extreme weather has become the new norm.

Meanwhile according to Euronews, “Torrential rain causes more havoc in Denmark.” And we see the tea production effected by “extreme weather” in India recorded in Money Control’s Bad Weather , Global Woes hit India’s tea production, export

Why I Switched From Wordpress To Blogger

I just migrated my WordPress blog to blogger and made blogger my headquarters. Why would I do such a thing when WordPress is the crème de la crème of blog platforms for search engine ranking.  I read a couple of really good articles and here is one on blogger lab, and after conducting my research I discovered there is no longer an advantage with WordPress over Blogger. I also tested my blog with WordPress to see where it ranked with one of my key search terms, and despite many articles on my topic and lengthy ones as well, which Google Search now favors, I did not show up until page 18 of Google. 

I had three blogs, one on Wordpress, and two on Blogger. After learning that Google changed its search algorithms in 2011 to combat content farms, and now favor websites with lots of information on their topic and lengthy articles, I decided it was best to consolidate my sites under one blog.

I started to get the idea that Google Blogger was the place to be when I discovered Google+ and how Google+ affects search  ranking.   Google was very smart to tie in their social networking platform with search.  Not to mention that if someone is in your circle or you are in theirs, if you wrote a article on a topic they are searching you will show up in their search results. With Google+ I noticed that I received good comments on my articles, while with Wordpress all I have ever received is spam.

Wordpress functions differently than blogger, you have plug ins that allow you to customize your site.   It is not as user friendly as blogger, which is real easy to use. I hired an individual who had done a previous website for me and he customized my Blogger to my specs and I based it on a free template that I completely customized except for the article format.  

I exported my Wordpress blog with a gadget I found online that converted it and was able to restore it with little problems. I found the directions on Moving Wordpress to Blogger in this article. The only change I needed to make was in a couple of Categories that I needed to tweak because they either didn’t show as a capital letter or needed to be Capitalized to match my Categories in Blogger.

Lastly, I do not have to deal with the cost of hosting, the hosting platform that I never had the time to learn, or having a website. I have even done away with my website and moved my site to Blogger. Is Blogger perfect? No, are there a few things I would fix, yes. I do not like that the blog description becomes the title of the blog, which I already have in my customized header so it left me having to make that work for my site so that my title does not appear  twice.

I know that many who come across my blogs, have their own blogs they write and I realize that I have gone against the status quo by moving my blog from Wordpress to Blogger so I thought I would write this article to explain why I have moved from Wordpress to Blogger in case anyone else is asking the same questions about Wordpress and Blogger that I asked.

Killer Cold Virus Now Epidemic in US

In addition to Ebola, which experts anticipate will hit the United States, and the join debilitating Chickungunya virus, and the hospital viruses that are out of control, we now have a mystery plague that has sickened 1000 kids and counting. Doctors suspect it is a killer cold virus named, Enterovirus 68 and they said it is epidemic. You can read all about the new virus or view the video in Good Morning America’s Report Unidentified Mystery Virus Likely To Hit Kids Across Country.  

 Are you in the camp with those of us who watch Bible Prophecy to notice that these are increasing? What’s up with the emergence of all of these illnesses? I am glad you asked.   These events are like a train that starts to chug along and build momentum until it is at full speed.  Jesus warned that these signs would begin to occur and gather pace like a woman in labor. These are signs and are acting as warnings. Between the pace of these plagues and the extreme weather, this is God’s warning that the train is on the track and is picking up steam. As we read more of our degenerate, immoral, violent society these are warnings that God is not pleased with what is happening in the hearts of men on planet earth.   Who reading this articles is unscathed by someone else’s immoral actions. I bet there is not one person reading this article who can’t write me and tell me their own personal story. 

This is a first that we have heard of a killer cold virus.  The common cold is usually harmless, but a killer cold virus that is maxing out some hospitals supply of beds and personnel?  This virus is also hitting early in the season as kids just went back to school.   I can hear the voice of The Robot on Lost in Space, “Warning, Warning, Warning Will Robinson,” Only I am the Robot telling you all, Warning, Warning as a messenger of the living God.

The train is gathering steam and from here it is all only going to get worse, and if these plagues seem bad, once the bowls and trumpet judgments begin in the Revelation prophecy it is going to be far worse.

A Catalog of Kill Happy & Wacky Cops At Ferguson

This article by MSNBC St. Louis Cop Suspended for Threatening to Kill Everyone acts as a catalog of kill happy and wacky cops at Ferguson, because the article does not just talk about this particular officer, but names two other's whose words and deeds will shock you.
I have two things to say. First and foremost the kill happy officer stated that he is a born again Christian who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ.  I heard of a crack smoker once who preached to people about Jesus while smoking crack.  Another drug user who while coming off of LSD thought he was Jesus Christ.  This officer is in the same category of these drug users only he is not using drugs.  Talking about killing everyone and saying that he is born again only adds to his insanity.

The real issue here is that Ferguson turned into a free for all.  You had insane police officers fighting raging, out of control, violent  rioters.  The entire situation became a replica of the days of Noah. which were characterized by the same lawlessness, violence and insanity.  I will admit it, I am shocked. I did not anticipate what we are now seeing in society.    I knew years ago based on the prophetic forecasts the days were going to get violent, I had no idea of the extremes that were ahead. What we are seeing and the stories we are reading defies logic, reasoning and human understanding.

All the more reason to tell you all that you need to make sure your spiritual house is in order and that you know Jesus as your personal Savior and if you are born again that you are walking close with Him.

Robin Williams: The Man With Everything?

I recently read that Robin Williams ashes were spread at a private funeral a few days ago. The shock of his death still lingers as he is viewed as a man with everything who took his own life.   His death has shocked many people.  He had everything in life and there was nothing he lacked.   Many of us suffer through serious life battles such as death, loss, abuse, abandonment, poverty, serious illness, etc. and we cannot imagine a man who has everything taking his life. 
 Robin Williams was diagnosed with early Parkinson’s disease and it was suggested that the diagnosis sent him into deep depression.  The Guardian published an article several years ago stating that Parkinson’s is linked to cocaine use, which findings were first discovered by St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Essentially Parkinson’s disease occurs because the brain stops producing dopamine.   Cocaine causes the brain to fire off excessive amounts of dopamine. The user will experience a crash of deep depression from lack of dopamine when the effects of cocaine wear off. This occurs because excessive amounts of dopamine are released into the brain to produce the high leaving the brain depleted.   
Cocaine can burn out the brain’s dopamine centers. Methamphetamine causes the release of even more dopamine and causes brain injury much quicker than cocaine.  Robin Williams cocaine use could have contributed to his developing Parkinson’s.  Although Robin Williams was not using drugs at the time of his death, he was in rehab only a couple of weeks or months earlier. It takes six months to a year for the brain to return to normal from the effects of alcohol and drugs. Depression and anxiety are common emotions for addictive personality types, but these emotions are more intense during recovery due to the upset in brain chemistry that takes time to heal.
While these facts can help us understand Robin William’s depression, the emotions do not warrant his taking his own life.  There were also the suggestions in the media that with great talent comes great suicidal depression. This is a myth. Many people with pronounced talents and gifts do not commit suicide, and lead lives that come to their normal end. There are other talented comedians alive today who have reached their elder years, such as Don Rickles,, Bill Cosby and Jerry Lewis. Do they have less talent than Robin Williams because they have not killed themselves?   No, we would have been equally as shocked if any of the persons I mentioned took their lives. Bill Cosby grieved the loss of a son, which is one of the most difficult life experiences to ever endure.
     Robin Williams may have very well suffered the curse of having everything.  The first commandment tells us in Exodus 20:3, “You shall have no other gods before me.” We learn in Scripture that with idolatry comes plagues. This means that the idols in your heart that you put before God will in some way bring you unhappiness because they come with a curse. Having everything can be a very empty feeling for a creative, sensitive soul like Robin Williams. Life without Jesus Christ can feel very empty and depressing because you feel like what is left to attain for fulfillment when you have acquired all you have sought after?    It goes to what I talked about in my book Free From Captivity Biblical Secrets to Overcoming Addiction: the more principle of addiction.  What does every addict want? More.  But, even without an addictive personality, how many of us are content when we have attained the things in life we sought after?    We want more or we want something else, we are never satisfied, which is why Paul the apostle stated in Philippians 4:11-13:
1Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Thus having everything is not the answer to life’s difficulties or the cure for the human spirit.  Robin William’s death is another case that shows us that having everything will not give you happiness.  You can have all this life has to offer, but if you do not have Jesus Christ you might as well have nothing. There isn’t anything in this life that satisfies the soul like Jesus or can help you through life’s most difficult challenges like a walk with Christ. Jesus is called the Great Physician, as only He can heal the sickness of our spirit, provide the balm we need and salvation, which is priceless.

More Extreme Violence-Cop Beating Woman on Highway

If you have not seen this video you must view this article by CBS news and watch the video footage of the cop beating a woman on a highway.  This footage is unbelievable!   The violence is not only extreme but unprovoked.   It is right out of 2 Timothy 3:1-5 that in the last days perilous times will come and men will be "brutal."  This police officer's actions are brutal.  My heart goes out to the woman in the video. This happened to her and it could happen to anyone.

People are becoming so unpredictable and violent and just as we are seeing extreme weather we are seeing extreme violence.   The severe weather are warnings in part because of this very sin that is growing in society.  This officer's anger and rage fired like a rocket. He was so explosive it didn't occur to him that he was in public acting this way in front of many people who were driving by him.   This reminds me of road rage footage. I have seen this same type  of anger exhibited and the next thing the road rage victim knows someone is firing shots at them, or beating them with a weapon.  We are seeing all kinds of violence and it fulfills Jesus's prediction that the end times are going to be like the days of Noah that were characterized by violence. The cop beating the woman on the highway is just one example of the horrific violence that we are seeing escalate to levels we never imagined.

Tsunamis, Sinkholes, Polar Vortex & Now Haboobs

This decade has been the era of extreme weather and we have come to learn new vocabulary words as a result. First Tsunami, then Sinkholes, last winter's Polar Vortex and now Haboobs.  If you do not know what a Haboob is ABC news does a superb job at reporting on the Haboob That Covered Palm Springs California  along with providing footage of other extreme weather that is simultaneously striking the United States. The ABC News Extreme Weather Report  noted over 80 storms and showed the extreme never seen before floods including the Haboobs. A Haboob is an intense dust storm that strikes like a tornado and looks like one only instead of high winds, the cloud is filled with dust.   The footage captured by ABC is absolutely frightening.

"Extreme Weather" is the new norm and we see the same storms taking place in society with all kinds of conflicts and commotions occurring around the globe. The weather patterns are happening just as Jesus described. The gospels predicted we would see the intensity and frequency like the labor pains of a woman in labor.  The weather is now consistently extreme and is getting more extreme. Terms such as Tsunami and Sinkhole have become so regular they are part of everyday vocabulary.  A Polar Vortex for the fall has already been speculated by one forecaster.   Next we will see if Haboob's will become commonplace like other extreme natural disasters.

I wonder if anyone is paying attention and do the masses see these disasters as the signs that Jesus predicted will lead to the end of the world? Do they see these as God's warnings?   If not that is what I am here to point out.  These are the very signs Jesus predicted would lead to the world's end and are the fulfillment of Jesus's words.  How many more extreme weather terms will enter our vocabulary in the process, time will unfold.
