Let The Games Begin!

I think of the current situation in the middle-east as a chess match between the USA and NATO and Russia and her allies. One makes a move, then the other. The West made a mess out of the middle-east, then Russia steps in to clean it up, then Turkey shoots down a Russian fighter jet, then Russia really blows the heck out of Turkey’s anti-Assad allies in Syria, then Turkey blocks Russia’s ships in the Black Sea(?). Now Iraq wants us gone, for which I cannot blame them. We screwed them over enough. Guess who is being courted to take our place? Russia. Clowns verses KGB agent, guess who wins. Seriously, what we have to call reality would make a great script for a comedy if so many people weren’t actually dying. When future generations look back at us, they will wonder how we have become so stupid. The more advanced (supposedly) our civilizations have become, the more effective we are at killing each other. At least with swords and spears it took real time and effort to kill each other, now we have nukes and can turn whole cities into a wasteland with a press of a button.  In fact, we don’t even have to be at war to nuke each other, Fukushima is doing a fine job of irradiating the planet. Slow, sure, but effective enough.

So now the West and Russia are putting their pieces in place for a heck of a show down. Sadly, this isn’t a game and a lot more people are going to die.

Stay alive and stay aware.

Because It Doesn’t Affect Me

That’s what my boundsoul coworker told me when I asked if he was aware of what was going on between Russia and Turkey and he told me ‘No.’ Of course I replied something to the effect of ‘Not until the nukes start flying.’

We are literally watching the chess pieces being put into place for what may be the worst combat conflict in the known history of mankind and people don’t care because it doesn’t affect them. It’s over there. I still have my beer and The Walking Dead will be back on in February. Electric still works. Ginny still fills me in on the latest town gossip at church. We still have IPhones. They believe that what’s over there will stay over there. Problem is, it may not stay over there. What will all these people do then? Our Clown-in-Chief fired all the good military officers and put in yesmen. We didn’t win anything in the middle-east, we just messed everything up. Russia blew the hades out of ISIS in just a few days more than we did in a few years. Are our commanders that lazy or is Russia actually stronger? Of course, it is my personal belief that the West, especially America, is actually supporting ISIS and other terror groups instead of really fighting them. So, what happens when it all blows up in our face?

America and Turkey are allies. If Turkey starts a shooting war with Russia, and mind you, they already shot first, we’ll join in one way or another and so will NATO. However, Russia is not alone and their good buddy China is no slouch anymore. Iran will not let the problems around them affect their home turf without a fight. Slowly, but surely, more and more nations are looking to Russia for help. Why? After looking at the mess we made in the middle-east, we have to be either extremely narcissistic fools or extremely psychopathic narcissists. Of course, anyone reading this knows that the whole thing is over the petrodollar and propping up what’s left of our economy while the bankers rob us blind. With America’s tainted reputation for being a global bully, we may actually find ourselves nearly friendless when the bear roars and the dragon breathes fire. So, do events taking place on the other side of the planet affect us? I would say that the answer is ‘yes.’

Be in prayer.

Storing Milk: Is It Possible?

I don’t know about you, but powdered milk is not on my taste-buds’ A-list. Consequently, I don’t store a pinch of it. Powdered milk also doesn’t have a great shelf life, though I’m sure some have figured out how to extend it. Here is something I don’t see on any lists or sites: canned evaporated milk! I mixed it 50/50 with water, chilled it, and there was no difference in taste with that of real milk. Being canned, it should last a few years, right? Not forever, of course, but longer than powdered milk I would think. AND it tastes better. Canned evaporated milk has been on my stock up list for a few months now. It’s super cheap when I find it at discount grocery stores, 4 for a buck for the mini cans and 2 for a buck for the veggie can size. At the one dollar store I go to, it’s a dollar for the veggie can size. Not exactly super expensive, $10 even from the dollar store would get me enough milk to stretch just over a month if I’m careful with how much I use. Just thought I’d share this tidbit of info, if anyone has more to add, please comment!

Back Home For The Winter

This was probably the crappiest summer ever. We managed to get a foundation for the driveway done and that was it. All summer. The near constant rain just took all my plans away. So, I try again next year. Forgive the long silence, I can be pretty busy. FreeSoul Mama decided to let me have the chickens and bunnies, so now I have my own animals. YAY! And now that my poor little car has visited the mechanic on a number of occasions, maybe it’ll behave for a while.

So, I moved back to my parent’s house for the winter. Bummer, but with all the rain, we could hardly do any dirt work.

If anyone gets the chance, look up the Harbinger and the Isaiah 9:10 effect. The next Elul 29, the date in the Hebrew calendar that, every seven years, marks the Jubilee. The last market crash was in 2008, another happened in 2001, and at least a couple times before that at seven year intervals all around Elul 29, in the fall. The next is September 2015. I’m not predicting anything, just want you to keep your eyes open and be ready, just in case. I don’t have all the info, but it’s on the internet and just a little searching around will find it. Let those who really dove into all the research explain it to you, they’re better at it anyway.

Keep prepping and may God grant you peace.

Deuteronomy 28: The Curses And America Part 4

This is the last part of this series, only eleven more verses of curses to go. NKJV version.

Deuteronomy 28:58, “If you do not carefully observe all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, THE LORD THY GOD,”

28:59, “Then the LORD will bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues — great and prolonged plagues — and serious and prolonged sickness.”

28:60, “Moreover He will bring back on you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you.”

28:61, “Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this book of the law, will the lord bring upon you until you are destroyed.”

28:62, “You shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven in multitude, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD your God.”

God is repeating Himself again. When God repeats Himself, he’s really serious. The more He repeats Himself, the more serious He is. Plague and sickness have been warned about a lot of times already, and those plagues and sicknesses we are already seeing. Now we are being warned of illegal immigrants from Central America carrying nasty diseases, of which we have little immunity, over our southern border into our land.

28:63, “And it shall be, that just as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply you, so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from off the land which you go to possess.”

28:64, “Then the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods, which neither you nor your fathers have known — wood and stone.”

Here the scripture is talking about displacement. Making the people of the nation under judgement a bunch of refugees, scattered to the wind.

28:65, “And among those nations you shall find no rest, nor shall the sole of your foot have a resting place; but there the LORD will give you a trembling heart, failing eyes, and anguish of soul.”

28:66, “Your life shall hang in doubt before you; you shall fear day and night, and have no assurance of life.”

28:67, “In the morning you shall say, ‘Oh, that it were evening!’ And at evening you shall say, ‘Oh, that it were morning!’ because of the fear that terrifies your heart, and because of the sight which your eyes shall see.”

We are being warned that we will live in complete terror, never knowing when our last breath could be.

28:68, “And the LORD will take you back to Egypt in ships, by the way of which I said to you, ‘You shall never see it again.’ And there you will be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will by you.”

This is the best explanation I could come up with, since I could not otherwise figure out how this verse could relate to modern culture. ‘Egypt’ could be a reference to a ‘spiritual Egypt’, i.e. the state we were in before we were dedicated to God. Possibly, we could be handed back to Britain, (and Europe) since we came out of them like ancient Israel came out of ancient Egypt. We’ll have to wait and see how this pans out. I do believe this verse also talks about that when our blessing is taken away, we will be so despicable in the eyes of our enemies that they would want nothing to do with us.

Well, that’s it of Deuteronomy 28. I hope this helps someone somewhere and that maybe someone with more of a calling for preaching and this kind of stuff will find this and do a better job than I did. America has been warned.

New Road In Life

Well, I finally got my own slice of land, a whole 7.42 acres of woods. I am staying out here, sometimes in my tent, sometimes in my car. A new adventure here at my new home. I plan to live life as close to the earth as possible, though it will be  a struggle to get there. Right now my poor, bedraggled car also serves as my power source and I have a slight raccoon problem, but I’m tough enough to stick it out. Being single again gives me more freedom to try and test things. Hope everyone has a great week!
