Green New Deal

We’ve heard way too much about that green new deal. It all boils down to the simple belief, with a few trillion dollars the elite in this world will be able to control the weather. This deception dates back to the days of Pharaoh. The Jews were slaves serving Egypt. Of course Egypt felt threatened by the number of Jewish slaves and introduced their form of abortion. I don’t have to remind anyone, the Egyptian abortion plan was full term abortion.

Then Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, gave this order to the Hebrew midwives, Shiphrah and Puah: “When you help the Hebrew women as they give birth, watch as they deliver. If the baby is a boy, kill him; if it is a girl, let her live.” (Exo 1:15-16 NLTse)

I guess that explains why the left today feels such a deep desire to push for full term abortions today. Full term abortion has nothing to do with any woman’s rights. Full term abortions are a form of worship used to honor the gods Pharaoh fabricated.

Pharaoh used a number of control measures over the Hebrew slaves. Forced labor which has been replaced by inflation and high taxes. Not to mention forced labor globalist use to fulfill their plans for a zero emission world. Then of course there was that never ending list of false gods Pharaoh created to control the Hebrew slaves. A god for the sun, rain, crops, and a host of others things related to the weather. As insane as it sounds, the Hebrew slaves were forced to make offerings to the Egyptian goddess of fertility, Isis. Which just happens to be a name popping up again thousands of years later. It was insane because Hebrews, for lack of a better term, were forced to pay taxes to Isis, the goddess of fertility. For what? To see their babies slaughtered after birth. That sums life under Pharaoh in a nutshell. As well as sheds light on life under Biden. Today we pay taxes to the new Isis in the form of carbon taxes.

That green new deal is one of the easiest deceptions to see through. The average American, and for that matter, average person worldwide can see through that deception viewing it as an attempt to make the leaders of the green new deal appear as gods. In short, their demand for funds to control the weather is nothing short of what we’ve seen in the stories in Exodus about Egypt and the Hebrew slaves and how God handled that situation. With that being understood, we should expect to see curses the world has to deal with as long as we have radical factions attempting to reintroduce worldwide slavery.

No one is going to deny we have witnessed sever weather like never before. On the other hand this world has seen its share of extremes where weather is concerned. Sever weather has always seen fluctuations and always will. It would not take a genius on the left to collect data on sever fluctuations and present studies that claim the weather has been changing over time. To claim weather has followed a predictable trend is insane. Over the years one portion of the globe has seen droughts while other parts has seen floods. The same is true with temperatures, record snow falls, and while we’re at it, earthquakes and volcanoes. Untold sums of money have been spent to predict each of those natural disasters. No one will argue the need to advance early warning systems for natural disasters or the need for government assistance when areas suffer from natural disasters. But to claim certain factions can impose laws to control weather crossed the line. In reality people know for a fact laws used to control weather stem from government controls seen used during the covid-19 events. Mandatory masks were used to prepare us for the day they tell us what type of car to drive. Lock downs were supposed to prepare us for increased gas prices and a demand to end the use of all fossil fuels.

The new green deal is an attack on God, Claiming to have the ability to control the weather is nothing more than recycled controls Pharaoh used to enslave the Hebrews. When we look at the stories we learned from the Bible as children and compare those stories to what we see today, we can’t help but see how God prepared for the days we live in and how God has always been infinite steps ahead of the devil. We have no choice than to open our eyes, see what is happening, pray, see how God prepared for this, and face the future with a far greater faith.

The green new deal builds on controls introduced during covid. The left wants to control what type of car you drive, the type of electricity you use, how it is produced, how much you can use, and what you are going to pay. What type of stove you can have, water heater, and a long list of other authorized and modern conveniences you can use. Of course you can hear promises when the left recruits new members. “Oh as a loyal member those restrictions won’t apply to you.”

Green deal controls are already easy to see. Look into the batteries required by the new green deal. There are choices for the materials used to produce those batteries. Of course there are lithium based batteries. The most common at the present time. Other choices include graphene and salt based compounds. We know there is an abundance of salt. So why not concentrate efforts into producing batteries from a compound that is readily available and we know we will never run out of? Graphene, normally produced from hemp, a renewable source would offer an alternative crop to farmers all over the world. Hemp is not a consumable crop and therefore not as heavily controlled when it comes to genetic engineering. Which opens the door to genetically engineer hemp to produce higher carbon deposits as well as medical CBD and other compounds. Hemp crops can produce crops offering not only an alternative to farmers to rotate crops that brings comparable income, but when farmers plant hemp yielding high concentrations of CBD’s, can offer income many times that of other consumable crops. Graphene batteries have shown to be safer than lithium batteries, last up to four times longer, and charge in less than half the time. The deeper we dig into batteries, the more we find advantages that are largely ignored.

So you may ask, if better alternatives are available, why do governments and companies invest billions into lithium and only lithium? As we already know, China controls the majority of sites worldwide of the richest lithium deposits. We also know lithium mining requires moving enormous amounts of soil in an operation known as strip mining. On one hand the globalists are doing everything in their power to ban strip mining for coal, pointing out the negative impacts strip mining has on the surrounding environment. But never complain about strip mining for lithium. Another double standard bubbles its way to the surface. The majority of lithium mining is conducted in the poorest countries across the globe. Countries where companies are least likely to encounter environmental regulations and for lack of a better term, governments are willing to play along. Cast a blind eye would be a better term. Those countries also offer low labor rates resulting in higher profits.

Batteries also require a number of precious metals. The majority of those precious metals are once again mined in the poorest of countries using of all things, slave labor, including child labor. Why is it you never see the globalists complaining about slave labor and child labor? In this modern world we still have slavery and entire countries where the average person will never see the opportunity to better their lives or the lives of their children. Globalist sit still and watch people waste away in the worst conditions living under forced labor for generations. Yes, it is true. Conditions equal to or far worse than those under the Pharaoh’s does exist in our modern world.

For nearly a generation the US and other advanced countries have been paying taxes on everything and anything that can produce emissions. Everything from nail polish to the gas you put in your car is taxed. That tax has been going to under developed counties for more than forty years. What good has that money done? The poorest countries have received billions of dollars. Has that money improved the life of the average person in those countries? If it has, we would never see the end of reports highlighting the success of that plan. Instead what do we see? We see reports of the most radical factions running the majority of those still under developed countries. Most of whom are controlled by what we often refer to as terrorist organizations. Not only are those terrorist factions receiving money from carbon taxes, they also receive humanitarian aid, and in some cases we’ve seen military funding. Yes that green deal includes plans to arm terrorists.

Those terrorist nations are also known for their oil production, slave trades, and drug trades. Yes we have been funding what we see as the most serious threats to the world. With supporters of the new green deal calling all the shots and financing societies the majority of us would whole heatedly disagree with. There is no question about it. The taxes we pay fund everything the average American stands against. Which is a hidden form of slavery. At the very least, taxation without representation.

The globalists claim they can control the weather. Until we look deep into the subject, we have no idea what and how much they already control.

Where has God been in all of this? God is easy to see when you know how to listen and where to look. Say a few prayers, listen, and pay attention to what God placed in your path. Have you paid attention to the recent increase in volcanic activity around the world? On the off chance you run across a news report about what scientists found in that volcanic ash. Rich deposits of those precious metals required to make batteries. It doesn’t matter if they use lithium, graphene, or salt to make those batteries. They all require varying amounts of other precious metals to make a battery.

Millions of dollars in gold and silver are sitting under these New Zealand volcanoes

Where is all this gold coming from? In the Taupo Zone, an area that Simmons said is geographically similar to Yellowstone National Park in the US, volcanic magma enriches underground water with heat, chemicals, and in some instances, precious metals.

What Are The Benefits Of Volcanoes?

Another benefits to volcanoes are the precious gems, minerals and building materials that eruptions make available. For instance, stones like pumice volcanic ash and perlite (volcanic glass) are all mined for various commercial uses. These include acting as abrasives in soaps and household cleaners. Volcanic ash and pumice are also used as a light-weight aggregate for making cement.

Volcanoes also play a vital role in periodically cooling off the planet. When volcanic ash and compounds like sulfur dioxide are released into the atmosphere, it can reflect some of the Sun’s rays back into space, thereby reducing the amount of heat energy absorbed by the atmosphere. This process, known as “global dimming”, therefore has a cooling effect on the planet.

Scientists find evidence of how platinum metals form under 60 million-year-old Scottish volcano

The solidified remains of sub-volcanic magmatic intrusions host the greatest concentrations of platinum-group metals in the Earth’s crust, such as platinum, palladium and rhodium. Scientists refer to these bodies as layered mafic intrusions. Traditional models suggest that these layered intrusions form in large volume magma chambers, but this new research has found that it’s more likely small amounts of magma is repeatedly injected into a crystal mush.

https://www.keele.ac.uk/about/news/2020/april/platinum-metals/form-scottish-volcano.php

I don’t have to remind anyone who has read the Bible about how God uses thunder, lightening, earthquakes, and along with that comes volcano eruptions to announce something is about to happen.

God sees the slavery used to mine those precious metals. So half a world away, God used volcanoes to pour out those precious metals in abundance. In areas where hopefully those minerals can be collected in a reasonable, efficient, and fair manner. If those eruptions occurred in the poorest countries using slave labor, those deposits would only benefit the rich as they do now. As we are seeing volcanic eruptions in more civilized and industrialized areas where laws favor all classes of people, the world has the opportunity to solve shortages of those precious metals as well as combat slavery.

We only see the destructive side of volcanoes reported. The Internet has dozens of articles covering precious metals found in volcanic ash. Why doesn’t the fine investigative media cover those stories? Sure we see homes and businesses engulfed in flames and burnt to the ground in those news stories. No one covered the fact those $200,000 homes may now be covered by millions of dollars in precious metals. Those people do need to put together a plan to investigate, find out what they have, and introduce a plan that is fair for the entire community. In other words, leave the globalists out of the entire process.

Knowing this we need to revisit the fires in Maui. Originally a land grab for ocean front property seemed to be the obvious motive. A lot of questions surrounded the Maui fires. Pictures of strange lights coming from the sky. Fire patterns raised a number of questions. Especially when we see videos of blue cars, blue plastic tarps, vases, and other blue objects spared from destruction and find out, lasers have no effect on certain shades of blue. You would think there was more than enough evidence to launch an investigation. Instead we’ve seen nothing but the usual censorship. Actually new forms of censorship as the government deemed the area where the fires occurred a toxic waste site. Fences were erected to protect the public. Screens were added to those fences to eliminate viewing of the site. When was the last time you heard of a house fire in your city and the government rushed over, put up a fence, and added tarps to that fence to contain all the dangerous and toxic wastes from that house fire? Why is it only houses in Maui produce toxic waste? After reading a number of articles on precious metals in volcanic ash, maybe the land grab is not for ocean front property. Maybe they have plans to mine the entire island. Not all of it. Just the section of island they burnt to the ground.

Since all of the island was formed from the same volcano, why couldn’t they just mine the unsettled parts? Depending on the mining process they choose, it could draw a number of complaints, resulting in investigations, regulations, and loss of income. Get rid of the people and you eliminate those issues. The more land they control with precious metal deposits, the more they control prices.

When we look at the leaders of the green deal, we never see a single member leading by example. Unless you count that video of Biden falling off his bike. We see them boarding private planes and chartered flights paid for with tax dollars. Once in a while we see them in their super sized kitchens with gas stoves and refrigerators costing more than an average home. Along with driving huge cars. Quite the example to set for something they say they believe in.

To understand the Constitution we need to know something about the authors and their lives. When we understand what shaped the lives of the authors, we know exactly why the Constitution contains the details it does and makes it impossible for anyone to effect you with their modern, liberal interpretations of the Constitution. One of the major points the authors emphasized was how important education is.

As you go through some of those famous quotes well over 200 years ago, you can’t help but wonder how they saw all the problems we see today.

Little Details Begin to Add Up

It could take some time to write a list of events that effected the US in 2020 through 2022. Most times it is easier to work with recent events until other events come back to memory. When we look at some of those events, the same key figures keep popping up on the news over and over again as if they are waving their arms saying, “notice me.” Hunter Biden is at the top of that list with information from his laptop followed by videos he posted on the Internet only a total idiot would post.

If the protests in 2020 were about equality. And the president supported those protests. Wouldn’t those laws equally apply to the president’s son?

It all began with Hunter’s laptop in a repair shop. We all saw the worst coming when we considered the fact, Hunter dropped it off for repairs and forgot about it. A copy of the hard drive found its way into Rudy Giuliani’s hands. The actual laptop was handed over to the FBI. After months there was no word from the FBI, so Rudy started releasing information. That information was more than a year old. To add fuel to the fire Hunter turned to social media and began posting pictures of himself with his gun, drugs, and a number of prostitutes. If nothing else that was a cry for help. We could ask the question, if Hunter is under 24 hour guard by the secret service, do they accompany him on his drug buys and do they screen his prostitutes?

The entire Hunter incident raised the question about equal treatment for all. In a republic there is no question. The law equally applies to everyone. The law does not see position, power, wealth, skin color, race, or sex. It took the US generations to reach the equality held in 2020. But since the election, we’ve witnessed the evolution of a specially protected class. Most Americans immediately recognized that separation. Which was more than evident whenever election results were challenged. That separation grew over the coming weeks and months to a degree the US government resembles more of a third world dictatorship than the republic we remember from 2020. We can look at the Hunter events and see how God was using Hunter to call attention to those changes and see where they are headed.

There are at least two subjects God used Hunter to shed light on changes we’ve seen over the past 16 months. The first is the new levels of justice in the judicial system. Hunter shines a light on the way criminals are treated in the criminal system where repeat offenders are often released within hours, causing an untold number of deaths and injuries. On the other hand political motivations are more than harsh on the opposing political party and people suspected of supporting the so called opposition. In simple terms, Hunter proved the existence of a politically controlled judicial system.

The other issue is the president’s attention to problems the US and world are facing. Many people have little to no confidence in the president’s ability to handle any problem. When we see Hunter’s cry for help and the lack of response, we have no doubts Joe Biden prefers to ignore problems rather than face them. If a president chooses to ignore drug problems and depression his son is trying to fight, what chance does the American public have when they rely on him to tackle the serious problems the US and world face today?

Joe is not the only person in a high position refusing to do their job and celebrating a broken judicial system. Nancy Pelosi’s husband was arrested for drunk driving and of course, it was swept under the rug. At least for a time.

Paul Pelosi was involved in an accident, found to be intoxicated, and arrested. This may not seem to sound unusual but consider the circumstances. It is not unusual for a political figure to get away with crimes, especially drunk driving. But in 2022 in California, intoxication and drug charges are rare. Really rare. In most cases law enforcement has been instructed to ignore the incident. In this case a very high political figure was arrested for a crime that no longer exists in or around San Francisco. We should be able to see God’s hand in that scene, if for nothing more than to draw attention to the fixed judicial system. But it is what followed that made all the difference.

Being under the spot light at the right moment brought hundreds of news people into Pelosi’s life to see what they could find to make a name for themselves. It didn’t take long before a second, more serious offense raised its ugly head. A number of reporters were able to put two and two together when they looked at a bill about to pass congress and Paul Pelosi just happened to invest $5 million in a computer chip company about to benefit from a bill set to pass congress. After being involved in insider trading for years, the Pelosi’s let their guard down long enough to get caught red handed. We know God had to have His hand in the matter when we see the right people drawn to the right place at the right time and carrier criminals make that one fatal error. The results of that investigation are still up in the air but it appears nothing will be done. The best we can hope for is for Pelosi to appoint a hand picked committee to investigate the issue.

Looking at that one incident with Pelosi’s husband, it looks like the politics we’ve been used to living with. The same holds true with the stock trading. We’ve grown used to seeing taxes stolen, politicians getting away with every crime on the books, and of course using their inside information to make a fortune for themselves. After all, why would anyone spend millions of dollars to get elected if there wasn’t more money at the end of the rainbow. And that rainbow. We will get to that later. But when we combine that with the other events we’ve seen unfold, such as the riots, establishing funds to bail out rioters, looking the other way on bail jumpers committing more crimes, and a host of other crimes we will discuss later, things begin to add up. What are they adding up to? As a Christian it is not our job to judge people. That is true in most instances.

Paul wrote a lot about judgment and the judgment process. We basically have one word for judgment, which has a variety of meanings to fit the proper context. The Greeks had a number of words which have been translated as judge or judgment. Most of them point to the fact, judgment is in God’s hands. But Paul used one specific Greek word translated as judgment that points to us and not only our ability, but duty to evaluate people’s actions.

Now, a person who is put in charge as a manager must be faithful. As for me, it matters very little how I might be evaluated by you or by any human authority. I don’t even trust my own judgment on this point. My conscience is clear, but that doesn’t prove I’m right. It is the Lord himself who will examine me and decide. So don’t make judgments about anyone ahead of time–before the Lord returns. For he will bring our darkest secrets to light and will reveal our private motives. Then God will give to each one whatever praise is due. (1Co 4:2-5 NLTse)

G350

anakrinō

an-ak-ree’-no

From G303 and G2919; properly to scrutinize, that is, (by implication) investigate, interrogate, determine: – ask, question, discern, examine, judge, search.

Paul liked to use himself as an example. As in this case, he knows he will be judged by God. Although some people argue that point, claiming those saved will not face the judgment process, that is true. Remember, the judgment process follows the same basic steps as the court system in this world. There has to be some kind of decision made for each person. No one faces trial unless they break the law, are arrested, and charges are filed. So breaking the law is what draws attention and begins the actual judgment system. Paul explained this in his own terms. The problem being, we all constantly sin. In a sense, we all face that judgment system pert near every day of our lives. And then there is the other side of the judgment system. The process we don’t want to find ourselves facing. Then we see people who we feel certain are going to face God’s judgment system. And maybe that is one of the purposes Hunter is serving in our time. If he has a reason to cry out for help, maybe he found a reason to live. Maybe he wants to change his life around. Maybe Hunter found out all that money and women were not the answer. Maybe that is why he turned to drugs. If most of us had the money Hunter was paid, we would surely live a different life. But most of us would not do the things Hunter did to earn that money. And maybe earn is not the right word. It appears that every step brings forth new details to examine and consider. Which is the point Paul was making when he used that particular Greek word for judgment. And later Paul explained why we need to learn how to examine circumstances.

When one of you has a dispute with another believer, how dare you file a lawsuit and ask a secular court to decide the matter instead of taking it to other believers! Don’t you realize that someday we believers will judge the world? And since you are going to judge the world, can’t you decide even these little things among yourselves? Don’t you realize that we will judge angels? So you should surely be able to resolve ordinary disputes in this life. If you have legal disputes about such matters, why go to outside judges who are not respected by the church? I am saying this to shame you. Isn’t there anyone in all the church who is wise enough to decide these issues? (1Co 6:1-5 NLTse).

We play some part in the judgment process. I am not going to explain the entire process here. There are other books that look into God’s judgment process in detail. The point here is, we are supposed to be mastering the judgment process of gathering information to make a determination of sorts. We never wander into the judgment process of condemning anyone. But we do learn now to gather and examine details. Who knows? Hunter may find God and come out with the truth. Joe Biden is reaching that age where he may feel his time is drawing near and he needs to confess to the world. When we see God’s hand in this, we know to expect the unexpected. God has a way of doing things where the result is nothing short of giving all the glory to God. No one in this world could have arranged all the details for this outcome.

Where to Begin

The main question is, where to begin? What event do we use to begin putting together the big picture? Sitting around debating where to begin is an excuse not to begin. Which is why it is best to launch an investigation of your own. If the investigation was by committee, we can all see a committee wasting weeks, months, and years debating where to begin. There is no right or wrong place to begin. You have the option of going forward and backwards in time.

The obvious place to begin is the arrest and assassination of George Floyd. Which of course was well documented by cell phone video seen all over the world. The evidence was in before the arrest. There was no doubt about what happened, when it happened, and how the event unfolded. Taking a step back, wouldn’t it have been much wiser to stand still and watch the system work? The only questions were, how fast the trail would occur, how long the trial would last, and what penalty would the court hand down? The main complaint was, blacks were constantly being targeted and murdered by white police officers. Common sense would have told everyone involved, they have unquestionable video evidence showing what happened, and the smart thing to do would be to see how that evidence was handled in a court of law. If they wanted proof the system favored whites and discriminated against blacks, they had the chance to prove their claims once and for all. But they chose to call for protests to force the outcome they favored. In the long run that move eliminated any chance for those who represent blacks to expose the discrimination they claimed was an everyday occurrence. Imagine if no charges were ever filed against that police officer. Or charges were filed but evidence was suppressed. Or the trial went through the motions, the officer was found guilty, and given a slap on the wrist. Any outcome short of a full murder charge and trial would have given blacks more than enough ammunition to launch protests to focus attention on a system that needed to by fixed. Instead those groups and politicians decided to launch all out protests that quickly turned into riots that ruined hundreds of businesses across the US. Everything that could have been gained was lost. The question is, what did George Floyd die for? Were the accusations against police true, or did those organizations jump the gun to cover the truth?

We can ask the question. Was God’s hand in the George Floyd incident? Did God create the opportunity to expose discrimination in police forces across the nation? Or a corrupt judicial system? The system was not allowed to go through the process uninterrupted without outside influence. A opportunity of a lifetime was missed.

Of course the George Floyd incident may not be the beginning of the story. Riots surrounded the entire event. If we went back to the 2016 election, we would find how riots were initiated to effect the 2016 election. It is easy to see the relationship between those two events. There were a few updates. During the 2016 riots is was easy to see the criminals. In 2016 they were they only people wearing masks. It was like watching an old time western movie where the bod guys wore masks. Throw in covid-19 restrictions and suddenly everyone was wearing a mask. The perfect camouflage for the criminal factions.

If we started gathering data on events between 2016 and 2020 we may uncover a wealth of information to help us see the full picture. That would be quite time consuming and it would be difficult to see how the events between 2016 and 2020 influenced events after 2020. A few events that come to mind is of course the wall between the US and Mexico. Another is Trump’s meeting in North Korea, dealing with Putin, Xi, and other world leaders. Then there are laws concerning human trafficking, smuggling, drugs, and immigration. Then we have taxes, jobs, government control on businesses, gas prices, inflation, and a host of other subjects. One thing all of those events share is the fact, the effect of those new events was not seen until the new administration began working with those laws. That is when stories began to unfold and lessons were there we can learn from.

One of the side effects of those riots was witnessed first hand by Senator Rand Paul on August 28, 2020 when he and his wife were attacked one block from the White House. Although many people considered this an isolated and minor incident, it was related to many of the events seen during the riots. Rand Paul was not to only person attacked by protesters in 2020. In one fashion. Rand Paul was the catalyst that called attention to an untold number of people who were attacked by protesters and injured during those riots. That may not seem like a big deal to some people unless we consider God’s hand in events. Rand Paul and his wife were unharmed, but the point was made. Media had no choice but to call attention to people physically effected by the riots.

How do we see God in all of this? Often times the hardest time to see God is in the middle of sever trails. And we are seeing trials like we have not seen in this generation. On the other hand, those close to God have no problem seeing God in trials. They grow accustom to seeing God. Their role is to share those experiences with others. They know it and often freely share their experiences. Then there are events we hear about that takes us a moment or two to see God’s hand. This runaway inflation is one of those events.

Where is God in this runaway inflation? We know that inflation is worldwide. Whenever we see a worldwide events, we can expect to see God. What is God doing about that inflation? The monetary system is of course under the control of the devil. Money was created by the devil. In a sense, God has to allow the devil to freely work with his system. With Job, Satan first attacked his wealth. We’ve been through covid-19 with inflation following. The sequence may be different, but the concept is the same. To break people down enough to curse God. Of course the lesson shows us just how much the devil and his globalist care about people. Taking a look from earths level we see how the devil and his agents love to see people suffer. It is all part of the game we are stuck in.

Of course inflation is tied into other areas. Not by God but by the globalists who want people to scrap gas powered cars and buy electric cars. For the most part globalist control the oil market and oil prices. Which have gone up to record prices.

Of course the government has all the answers and unlimited funds. Of course it is not their money, it is ours. But government is not concerned with where the money comes from. They are of course concerned with where it is spent. Which is another part of the story to look at.

For the most part the Build Back Better and Green plans focus in two major areas, lithium production and solar energy. Both of which are outdated technology. China has cornered the lithium market. So most of the tax dollars fund Chinese businesses mining lithium all over the world. Many of those countries use slave labor. So one sin is overlooked in the name of science and saving the world. But are they saving the world?

The administration today cannot run a country. One mistake leads to another and another. Crime is out of control. Illegal immigration is out of control. Taxes and inflation is out of control. And we are supposed to trust those people and trust they can control worldwide weather. There are issues, but we need to examine one at a time.

Battery technology has taken off over the past few years. Carbon based batteries are manufactured from renewable sources known as plant material. Hydrogen power sources have also been improved. Neither power source has drawn the attention of those in congress. Except to impose new restrictions, regulations, and rules that hinder development and improvement. Most members of congress fight alternative sources tooth and nail while they use press conferences to convince the American public they are working to lower reliance on fossil fuels. In the mean time that didn’t stop oil sales to China.

By themselves each of those events seem to have little effect on the world stage. When we put together the events we see plans unfold. Most of those plans include huge profits for a handful of people.

The question has to be, is God offering alternatives to lithium and solar power? If so, why? Maybe it is because of the slave labor involved. Maybe it is a move against the people involved in those isolated fields. God sees everything behind the scenes, so when we see something working in the opposite direction and alternative choices are offered, we need to pay attention.

Of course we have to consider Jesus’ return. Does anyone believe that return will be timed or controlled by our oil supply? We have to get our minds off all the science fiction movies and back on reality. When Jesus returns, the world will eventually be cleansed by fire. Does that mean this world will have an adequate supply of oil to perform that task? Some believe that is true. Then again, God has been known for making fire out of nothing. Either way, we know we have a judgment process to face and the verdict will be carried out.

Putting the Facts Together

After writing a number of Books on the Bible focusing on Bible Study, one detail remains evident. We are never going to see the full story until we sit down and start writing out the details.

Sure if we took a look at one detail, gathered all the facts, and formed an opinion, we may feel satisfied with that view point. But that view point on one event is far from the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth until we start putting the events together to find out what led to that event. Then of course, what was the outcome of that event, and what did we learn from it.

No one can argue with the point, a history book is rather useless unless it includes all the details that lead to an event, details about the event covered, and the results of that event and how it effected people and the world. We are witnessing historical events unfold before our eyes, and if we don’t sit down to write out the series of events we will never see the relationship between those events, and how they worked together for good and bad. In other words, a look at both sides of the story. Which of course always contains more than two sides.

There is a problem, especially with Christians today. They have been trained and programmed to look at one story and accept a logical sounding explanation based on that single event. In other words, take the word of a single man, maybe a scholar, on the lesson that single event was supposed to teach us. But that was not the way the Bible was written. I know a lot of people will argue the point claiming, “the Bible was written so everyone could understand it.” If that was true, then why do we need so many preachers, pastors, priests, bishops, deacons, teachers, and others to take the stories in the Bible and explain them in their own words?

We need to break from that mold, the belief that there is wisdom from a single event recorded in the Bible and get back to looking at how events in the Bible are related to one another and what lessons the full picture brings. Every Christian has the same Spirit telling them to look at the big picture. Every Christian knows there is far more knowledge and wisdom contained in the Bible when they finally understand the big picture. Every Christian has the same feeling deep down inside of them, knowing there is a sense of relief and security in knowing all the details in the full picture. But there are too many preachers and teachers telling people, it is impossible to understand the full picture. They will not use the term, “full picture.” They do substitute terms like, “knowing the mind of God,” and other such terms to make people feel small and insignificant. In other words, to stop people from searching for the truth on their own. Which is far easier than imagined.

About 200 years ago, before anyone thought of erecting large institutions of learning, God chose normal, everyday people to reveal some of the most astonishing facts contained within the pages of scripture. Some of those people had formal educations for those days. Some people were much like Saul, who Jesus renamed Paul. They were men of learning. For lack of a better term, had to leave the established church and all its restrictions to follow a path to find God. You can research those early pioneers on your own to see where the Spirit leads. When you do, pay attention to how they studied the Bible and how they formulated the studies they published. When you do, no matter what source you choose from 200 years ago, you will see a stanch contrast between study methods used over 200 years ago to what they use today. In our so called, “advanced and modern age,” studies have been, for lack of a better term, “dumbed down,” so they can be presented to the masses. You have to ask , why in this modern age of computers do we restrict ourselves to one story out of the Bible coupled to a long drawn out explanation telling us what it means? If we have computers equipped with references, resources, Concordances, and search engines, why don’t we use them to unlock secrets in scripture?

Paul was one of the most informed and educated Pharisees of his time. Paul had scripture memorized forwards and backwards. Paul knew and accepted all the explanations recorded by the wisest and highest educated men of his time, and generations before. Then one day, back when he was known as Saul, he met Jesus. And three days later, Paul had a completely different concept on the scriptures. A concept that reshaped his life and changed his life and concepts on the Old Testament forever. What changed Paul’s mind? The order of the stories Jesus revealed to Paul. It wasn’t one story and a concept, and another story and a concept. It was the series of prophecies about Jesus and their proper order. Paul knew each of those prophecies better than any of use could ever hope to know. The problem was, Paul was stuck in the trap of one story and an explanation for each of the 300 plus prophecies about Jesus. Paul witnessed a number of those prophecies fulfilled in front of his eyes, but his mind was blocked by the method of study he had burned into his mind. Jesus had to convince Paul to purge all of that learning and open his mind to the obvious, the sequence of all of those prophesies applied in the proper order. Once the details were laid out in the proper order, no additional explanation was necessary. Paul saw how scripture explained itself. And Paul wrote books to show how scripture explains itself. The problem is, the explanations Paul recorded are ignored. Paul gave us every explanation we will ever need, but no one bothers to look at the hundreds of explanations and answers Paul clearly recorded for our benefit. Paul’s answers have been replaced by 40 minute explanations designed to finish up and release the prisoners so they can make it home in time for the football game.

Test that for yourself. Open any one of Paul’s books to any chapter you choose and when Paul quotes scripture, look it up and read the entire story in the Old Testament. Some references in Paul’s books are easy to find. Paul often made it clear by writing, “According to Isiah,” or something along those lines. Using a chain reference is a big help. Chain references often include the Old Testament story Paul quoted from. It takes practice before you can recognize all of Paul’s references. But when you do, it will open up the Bible like you never imagined.

That all makes sense when you consider one example. If all you ever heard or knew was on single prophecy about Jesus, that would never be enough evidence for you to believe in Jesus. Christians know there are more than 300 prophecies about Jesus recorded in the Old Testament. There must have been a reason for so many prophecies. Paul was shown that reason and wrote a number of books to explain why there are more that 300 prophecies about Jesus. As a matter of fact, many of those prophecies are about Paul himself and the other disciples. And we know there are prophecies about other subjects. It doesn’t matter what the subject is, until we put all the prophecies and facts together in the proper order, we don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of understanding exactly what those prophecies are telling us.

Then we can take a look at those prophecies from a different angle. We can sort of reverse engineer some of those prophecies. In other words, look at events and figure out where the Bible talks about them. Some of those stories in scripture are rather vague based on the fact humans repeat the same mistakes and the devil reuses the same temptations over and over again. Some of the stories in the Old Testament drive home that point. No matter what method we use, we need to stop relying on or trying to use the one detail leads to one explanation method. That is used by people who study without the Spirit. Their only concern is making a name for themselves. When people study with the Spirit they have no problem showing exactly how one story in the Bible led to another, how those stories are related, and giving all the glory to God. What this leads to is the need to collect all the facts leading up to major events, the event itself, and then draw a conclusion on the lessons taught and parallels in scripture. Which in both cases would lead to a number of related stories and events.

The simple fact of the matter is, we will never know how today’s events are related and how they coincide with scripture until we sit down and start making a list. Which consists or writing, taking a break, prayer, and repeat. That is when additional events emerge, relationships are discovered and real study begins. Isiah had a way of explaining the method.

Now, however, Israel is led by drunks who reel with wine and stagger with alcohol. The priests and prophets stagger with alcohol and lose themselves in wine. They reel when they see visions and stagger as they render decisions. Their tables are covered with vomit; filth is everywhere. “Who does the LORD think we are?” they ask. “Why does he speak to us like this? Are we little children, just recently weaned? He tells us everything over and over– one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there!” So now God will have to speak to his people through foreign oppressors who speak a strange language! God has told his people, “Here is a place of rest; let the weary rest here. This is a place of quiet rest.” But they would not listen. So the LORD will spell out his message for them again, one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there, so that they will stumble and fall. They will be injured, trapped, and captured. (Isa 28:7-13 NLTse).

Of course there have been hundreds of interpretations to this message from Isiah. The majority agree the message has something to do with Bible Study. But why stop at one message on Bible Study? Which is what the majority of theologians do. They stop at one message rather than looking at where the message leads. Most prefer to use a small portion of Isiah, “one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there!” Then theologians dive right into their long drawn out explanation when in fact they are ignoring the line they are trying to explain. The prophecy is of course about Jesus. Trying to tell us, the story about Jesus in the Old Testament is made up of little pieces here and there that need to be put together. Which men who interpret the Bible refuse to do. Which is why Isiah told them, “priests and prophets stagger with alcohol and lose themselves in wine. They reel when they see visions and stagger as they render decisions. Their tables are covered with vomit;” Which is something smart people want to avoid.

It doesn’t matter how we look at it. If we don’t gather all the data, we are never going to see the big picture. So we have no choice but to start gathering data, write out a list, pray about it, and repeat as often as necessary.

It is early 2022. The world feels as if we are living in some kind of strange void. Nothing seems the same. No one remembers what normal is. Discussions on returning to normal seem to have drifted to the ground like the leaves that fell in autumn. Temperatures in Wisconsin were below zero. Just a few minutes outside and you can feel the stinging cold. Is it a reminder of the state of the world, or is the cold a premonition of what is to come?

It would take volumes to write a list of what has gone wrong over the past year. The beginning of a new year usually brings hope. Not in 2022. The administration and media have been working over time for more than a year to spread every form of hopelessness and fear. To top it all off, 2021 ended with the threat of war while 2022 appears to make that threat a reality.

With temperatures at seasonable lows, it seems nothing short of total insanity to mass troops along the Russian/Ukraine border in January. I grew up hearing stories about the Battle of the Bulge. I heard about the cold. Living a winter in Germany during a war. No one could start a fire. It would give away their position and that meant certain death as the enemy laid in the woods just a few hundred yards away. They lived through the winter without the slightest hope of warmth. Imagine living in those conditions for months. When I go outside I can’t help but remember those stories and think of the solders along the Ukraine border sitting there waiting for a collection of what is described as a group of muppets altered by radiation poisoning to make a decision. Today we live with the words, “the only thing to fear is turning on the news to find out what went wrong today.” That about sums up the past year.

We’ve lived under the threat of covid-19 for more than two years. We’ve gone through lock downs, hoarding, shortages, record inflation, the US southern border have been open for a year now with people and drugs streaming in faster than the wind, major cities have seen crime waves like never before, and we all wait to see, what’s next. China has been threatening Taiwan and Singapore for months. Then Russia massed troops along their border with Ukraine. We have become used to having news spoon fed to us. The administration has not been able to answer any questions. Except for threats leveled at those who don’t support their party and one sided ideas. The parallel between the course the US and for that part, most of the world has taken an eerie resemblance to that of Venezuela when the communists took over. Reading that history appears like a playbook this administration has been following at an accelerated rate.

The threat of war we hear everyday combined with the less than adequate explanations on covid-19 and the slant the news media has taken on both subjects, every normal thinking individual in the world is asking the question, “was that virus developed in a laboratory?”

When we look at the dates funding was granted and deadly viruses were created under laboratory conditions we know it takes only a short time for modern science to give a virus what it needed to survive under extreme conditions and spread at alarming rates. Add to that the fact, covid-19 has been the most deadly virus in our life span and we get a bad feeling about the treat of wars the administration has not explained. We know about WW1 and chemical weapons used during that war. Today chemical warfare has taken on a new meaning. Of course agreements were signed. Throughout the world chemical warfare has been banned. But what is a treaty to those who refuse to honor the Constitution, ignore every law, and want to conquer the world and feel they have the power to carry out their plans?

That void we feel is what can be termed the perfect storm with an eerie moment of silence before the storm hits. We see the darkness on the horizon and wonder how sever the storm will actually be. There is nothing to do but sit, wait, and pray. Confidence is so low and the outlook bleak, it almost seems more humane to curse those responsible than do the Christian thing and pray for them. Life has shown us what happens to the average mind when spoon fed a menu of hopelessness and submission on a daily basis. We can’t help but see the signs of physiological warfare unleashed across the world. We see some countries fighting against that physiological warfare. Some are winning. Some are loosing. Some countries we hear about the start of a revolution than we hear nothing at all. At times the lack of information and obvious censorship is the hardest to live with. Then we are fed a host of threats and sanctions aimed at those who do not trust the vaccines or who look at covid-19 as a myth, a part of that physiological warfare and nothing more. Not many of us have ever lived through those conditions. A few who escaped communist rule ensure us, this is part of the plan and we need to resist. Then the pressure mounts. New sanctions, higher inflation, and the threat of war getting closer. When is it all going to end? How is it going to end?

What is the possibility that covid-19 was created in a laboratory and how was it released? Was it by accident or was that part of an experiment to test the effectiveness of the new man made virus? If it was intentional, does it point to a new era of bio-weapons?

Samples from Early Wuhan Covid-19 Patients Show the Presence of Genetically Modified Henipah Virus … Guess Why? By Brian Simpson

We have not heard much about the Wuhan lab origin of SARS Cov-2 from the media, mainstream or alternative. But here is a little bit more news. Scientists have found that samples from early Wuhan COVID-19 patients show the presence of genetically modified Henipah virus. This was one of the two types of viruses sent to China by Chinese-born scientists from a Canadian laboratory. The lab was at the centre of a controversy over the firing of the scientists and collaboration with Chinese military researchers. Seems like another smoking gun here.

Samples from early Wuhan COVID-19 patients show the presence of genetically modified Henipah virus, an American scientist has found.

Henipah was one of the two types of viruses sent to China by Chinese-born scientists from a Canadian laboratory at the centre of a controversy over the firing of the scientists and collaboration with Chinese military researchers. It is not clear whether the virus found in the Chinese samples is related to the virus samples sent by the Canadian lab, which were shipped in late March 2019.

The finding was confirmed for The Epoch Times by another qualified scientist.

The evidence was first found by Dr. Steven Quay, a Seattle-based physician-scientist and former faculty member at the Stanford University School of Medicine, who looked at early COVID-19 samples uploaded by scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) shortly after China informed the World Health Organization about the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak.

The issue of GoF research at WIV has been a point of contention in the United States between lawmakers and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the NIH’s head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Fauci’s organization has funded research (through EcoHealth Alliance) on coronaviruses at the Wuhan lab. U.S. Sen. Rand Paul says published work from WIV on coronaviruses shows the lab is conducting GoF research, a charge that Fauci denies.”

Based on news out of Canada, the situation is bleak. If that Canadian laboratory is part of a plan to release laboratory viruses. Canada does have its issues and is at the forefront of the news when it comes to lock downs, forced vaccinations, and sanctions aimed at the general public. At the present time the little news we get out of Canada tells us about a number of truck drivers protesting the lock downs and forced vaccinations. I wonder what the attitude of those truck drivers would be if they knew laboratories in Canada are involved in producing super viruses.

We have to take all of this with a grain of salt. We don’t have the full story about Canada, nor the virus, and when we look at the news source on the manufactured virus sent to China, we have to consider the source. An independent news outlet that quotes The Epoch Times and an unnamed scientist as its only source is less than reliable. The article does consider points on the minds of millions. But the presentation and collection of cold hard facts is less than adequate.

Mentioning the Chinese military is designed to attract attention. Both sides, the left and right have been rather good at spreading fear. We have to remember the 2016 election. A handful of people with a laptop and Internet connection made millions of dollars by creating websites, working with ad companies, and posting the most unbelievable stories about both sides running for president. Some of those fly by night news agencies even advertised to buy stories. Stories that obviously were not true, but attracted Internet traffic at a record pace. The goal was obvious. Attract as much Internet traffic as possible and watch the ad revenues flow in.

Those fly by night news agencies attracted the attention of legitimate news agencies who quickly copied and refined the system. News reporting was no longer an issue. Posting tabloid type stories was much more profitable and the bottom line was all that mattered. Internet advertising buried investigative journalism forever. The left and right news agencies jumped on the band wagon. Looking at information on ad revenue sharing and counting the number of ads, pop ups, and other forms of advertising on news sights showed the average news website can generate at least $8 every time someone visits the site. Put up a few bizarre stories and it is like a fish who cannot resist the shiny lure. Visitors click on a few other pages, the ads pop up, and the money rolls in. That is the world we live in today and that is what makes legitimate news difficult to find.

Insight into COVID-19’s epidemiology, pathology, and treatment

The newly emerged 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has urged scientific and medical communities to focus on epidemiology, pathophysiology, and treatment of SARS-CoV-2. Indeed, little is known about the virus causing this severe acute respiratory syndrome pandemic, coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Data already collected on viruses belonging to the coronaviridae family are of interest to improve our knowledge rapidly on this pandemic. The current review aims at delivering insight into the fundamental advances inSARS-CoV-2 epidemiology, pathophysiology, life cycle, and treatment.

Subsequently, reports presumed a potential outbreak caused by a new coronavirus, called SARS-CoV-2, with a reproductive number ranging from 2.24 – 3.58

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8767941/

Another article deals with a host of scientific information difficult to understand but appears more reliable than third party news sites stuffed with ads. It appears the make up of covid-19 is either an evolutionary fluke, a virus smarter than the average human, or something conceived and created in a laboratory. Take your pick or feel free to add your own explanation. We will not hear the truth in any news conference so don’t hold your breath.

When we look at requests for original grants for virus research, we know a handful of scientists gained funding by insisting natural evolution will one day lead to a super virus that could wipe out the entire planet. We also know, viruses have a short life spam and the human immune system has been able to adapt to every form of virus this world has been able to throw at it. We also know those super viruses were developed in laboratories by genetically splicing simple viruses from pigs and birds. Chinese labs concentrated on viruses from bats and who knows what. Today genetically splicing viruses and creating new, more deadly viruses is like child’s play. It takes little time and when we consider the amount of censorship we see today, we can only imagine what has been created in laboratories and what we may one day see released into this world. Of course only a totally insane individual would release any type of virus they couldn’t control. Some type of vaccine would have to be created and administered to those they feel are essential to their cause. Then that vaccine has to be tested, available, and distributed. It doesn’t take a scientist to set up and initiate such a plan. Pun intended.

On the military front, one army can infect another with a virus. Which reminds me of a story in the Bible. Jacob’s daughter was raped. The prince who raped her wanted to marry her. Jacob’s sons agreed that if all the men in that city were circumcised, the wedding would go on and Jacob’s sons would marry their daughters and men in that city would marry women from Jacob’s clan. Of course leaders in the city had plans to take all of Jacob’s possessions and get rich off the scheme. But Jacob’s sons had a plan of their own. As soon as all the men in the city were circumcised, they went into the city and killed every man, enslaved the women and children, and took every possession. I am sure a few choice leaders in this world and generals are aware of that story.

When we look at Russia and Ukraine in the middle of the 2022 winter, we have to consider the fact, a virus will not survive in the bitter cold outside. How would someone like Russia deliver a virus if that was the plan? Unless someone developed a super virus that could be delivered and survive in an air born state in freezing temperatures. Remember the initial vaccine? That vaccine had to be shipped and stored at extremely low temperatures until it was administered. Has anyone ever heard of that before? The vaccine had to consist of living virus cells to do its job. So how did those virus cells survive transportation and storage? Was there a virus cell that could be frozen and revived? Most virus cells die a few minutes in lower temperatures. Bird viruses could not survive in humans because of lower temperatures until someone created a new virus in a lab. Then we have bat viruses. Bat’s hibernate in winter where their body temperatures drop. Somehow the viruses they carry survive.

Covid-19 shares a lot of qualities with bat viruses. The viruses attack the lungs and can be fatal. That is the general make up of the SARS-CoV virus. It originated in bats and transfers to humans on rare occasions. The SARS-CoV virus is able to survive extreme conditions. The only problem is, the virus was only known to transmit through bat feces and water droplets such as saliva and of course in water vapor from human to human through coughing and sneezing. That is true in SARS-CoV’s natural environment. But what if scientists were able to extent those conditions to let’s call it, military standards.

Exclusive: Samples From Early Wuhan COVID Patients Had Genetically Modified Henipah, 1 of 2 Types of Viruses Sent From Canadian Lab

Perhaps you will recall the early claims that there was a link between the lab in Canada and Wuhan, which were immediately called a conspiracy theory so they do not have to answer them. The samples of the first version of COVID match what was created in the National Microbiology Laboratory in Canada. Also buried deep in the story is that the scientist Dr. Frank Plummer was the director of Canada’s National Microbiology Lab, to whom the Gates Foundation handed a grant of $8.3 million. He died in Kenya weeks after the official start of the 2019 coronavirus outbreak on February 4, 2020, which happened weeks after a Gates Foundation simulation of a coronavirus outbreak.

This article proves people will go to great lengths to develop theories to make a name for themselves. The site of course has its share of ads. Which is a red flag. But when we live in a world of censorship, people can and will take advantage of the situation to enrich themselves.

We live in a world where key powers have mobilized their military and are under the threat of bio-warfare. We know one thing for sure, there is far more behind the scenes than we can ever imagine. With the development of mutant viruses able to attack the nervous system and brain, we don’t want to begin to speculate on the danger soldiers are facing today. When you live in a world resembling a collection of science fiction movies, you get the feeling, anything can happen. You have two choices. Ignore the entire situation or look into it and gather whatever facts are available. Some people prefer to lend a never dying allegiance to the powers at hand. For the most part the administration and fake news has been taking advantage of people who really believe a socialist society can solve all the world’s problems and as we have seen, are willing to fight for that concept. Then we have the other side. The side that refuses to trust any form of socialism or communism. They looked into how communists came to power just a generation ago. Russia and China caused more deaths in their take over after WWII than the total number of casualties suffered during the war. The numbers who died didn’t seem to matter to Russian and Chinese leaders. Starvation and disease were prevalent. But that wasn’t enough. To make their point clear, Russia and China added in executions on a grand scale and their form of concentration or reeducation camps. That is what the normal thinking patriots all over the world fear the most today and they are witnessing the gathering of the storm.

When we see mandatory vaccines for all military personal with no exemptions, we see a red flag. Is this preparation for bio-warfare? Are military commanders planing on disabling an opposing force with bio-weapons? We know the threat exists. We know research has gone into weapons to neutralize entire populations while leaving infrastructure intact. Only time will tell if we see those weapons in use and what they are capable of.

The problem is, which vaccine will they use and will it work? When we look at vaccines we will see how the wrong vaccine can and will spell disaster. Today we have at least half a dozen variations of covid-19. You have to be in a coma not to know about the vaccines and boosters introduced over the past year. When we look at the results, we see infections and fatality rate rising faster then before a vaccine was introduced. Which was exactly what scientists warned about when a vaccine was introduced.

We have a virus that attacks the respiratory system, one that is not any more dangerous than the seasonal flu but is deadly when people have underlying conditions. Another variant that is more deadly than seasonal flu and is more effective against healthy people. Then we have a series of variants that spread much faster and effect the nervous system and brain. The results may take weeks or months to show up. Which variant would you vaccinate the military against? Remember, if you vaccinate against the wrong variant, you could make matters mush worse.

I Visited a Chinese Lab at the Center of a Biosafety Debate. What I Learned Helps Explain the Clash Over Covid-19’s Origins.

H7N9 would turn out to be a minor threat compared to SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes Covid-19, but the path it took will sound familiar to anyone who has tracked the news over the last year. Initial cases in China were followed by censorship and secrecy, which gave way to lingering suspicion of both the government and Chinese scientists.

I profiled a flu researcher who was helping authorities contain the spread of H7N9. Even as she became the point person for the outbreak, she was at the center of a scientific controversy for an experiment she had done on another avian flu virus. That work involved tweaking pathogens in order to study how they might become more contagious, a type of study that is often lumped under the shorthand “gain of function.” Proponents of such experiments argued that a better understanding of how viruses are transmitted from one species to the next could help public health experts ward off natural outbreaks. Critics worried that instead of aiding in global health, her research could spark a pandemic.

That was before gain-of-function work got stirred into the toxic stew that is American politics, before it was mixed up with feelings about former President Donald Trump and ex-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, racism and anti-racism, and faith in science. Before Republicans believed a few vocal politicians who claimed, wrongly, that the pandemic was definitely caused by a lab leak, and Democrats believed a few vocal scientists who assured them, also wrongly, that such a thing was definitely impossible.

So-called natural spillovers often happen in densely populated areas where people live close to animals. (That frequency is one reason many scientists suspect a natural origin with SARS-CoV-2.) With H7N9, the likely culprit was poultry markets. I wanted to talk with Chen about the early days of the outbreak, when her lab had scrambled to sequence and analyze H7N9 strains isolated from chickens and pigeons.

Chen’s paper on H5N1 and guinea pigs was published in May 2013, when H7N9 was still spreading through southern China. More than a dozen researchers had worked on the study, which involved 250 guinea pigs, 1,000 mice, and 27,000 infected chicken eggs. Their goal was to determine what changes would enable the H5N1 virus to spread more effectively. After swapping out the single gene, they found that an infected animal could pass the virus to a healthy one in an adjoining cage through respiratory droplets.

Virologists who did similar research had a completely different take on Chen’s work. I spoke with five of them. One quibbled with the design of the experiment, but the others used words like “exemplary” and “highly respected.” Ron Fouchier of Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, told me that he had dreamed of doing exactly the same experiment as Chen but couldn’t because of various constraints. “I do not have a single grant for which I could afford to work with 13 people for two years to yield a paper, no matter how excellent that paper is,” he wrote in an email. Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison also spoke highly of Chen and told me that her lab was state of the art.

THE MOMENT of correction we’re now in is dangerous in its own way. There is still no direct evidence to support a lab leak, and many scientists with no stake in the outcome still say that a natural origin is more likely. Scientific consensus has not, in fact, shifted toward a lab origin. But some pundits with the risky combination of a lack of expertise and an agenda have argued that a lab leak caused the pandemic, case closed. Bari Weiss, the former New York Times columnist who spends most of her time railing against cancel culture, recently published an interview with Mike Pompeo, who told her that the evidence “points in the single direction of this having been a laboratory leak,” though he added, “I can’t lay down the proof for you.”

https://migrate.readersupportednews.org/news-section2/318-66/70029-i-visited-a-chinese-lab-at-the-center-of-a-biosafety-debate-what-i-learned-helps-explain-the-clash-over-covid-19s-origins

When we see China as a main player in virus development, we all begin to worry. When we see the outbreak of a major flu virus originate in China, we all begin asking questions. When we see one side turn that news into a political event, we know something is up. When they sprinkle in censorship at a level never experienced in the US before, we are certain someone is hiding something and we wonder what is really happening behind the scenes. Put that all together and we have a political atmosphere far more toxic than covid-19.

Of course much of this news comes from independent sources. Some offer links and disclose sources. That is a good start. But they always seem to support one political agenda or another and that is where the sources drop off. Some information is backed up with evidence. But then articles linger on politically motivated statements with little to no evidence to back them up. Which is why it is important to consider a number of source and pay attention to the amount of evidence presented. The average person can tell when a story drifts from investigative reporting to personal opinion.

How Much Should The Public Be Told About Research Into Risky Viruses?

There’s a lot of interest out there in how these reviews get done, notes Wolinetz, but “it’s a little bit tricky, because all of these discussions are happening before funding decisions are made. Under current rules and regulations in the government, those conversations, pre-award conversations, are protected.”

That’s to ensure, for example, that someone’s idea for a novel experiment doesn’t get stolen by another researcher. It also lets reviewers be candid in their critiques. What’s more, if a proposed study was deemed too alarming to fund, it might not make sense to make that idea available to all.

A biosafety official at his university, Rebecca Moritz, explained that specific security requirements might need to be kept secret to protect the public. In addition, she noted that the government review “contains sensitive information because, in it, we are required to detail the ways in which the research could potentially be misused.”

Beyond the question of how much information should be available about the U.S. government’s funding decisions, some continue to worry about the consequences of publicly publishing any research results that would describe how to make a pathogen more dangerous.

The HHS decision-making framework says funded research may require “risk mitigation strategies” that might include “methodologies for responsible communication of results.”

But Inglesby says that “responsible communication” has never been defined.

Of course in each of these articles I copied only cover key points. I would suggest you read the entire article. The flavor of these articles will tell the average reader if the writer is biased or unbiased. Views from different angles help to formulate an opinion as well as disclose motives behind each of these events.

Of course laboratories and scientists have security concerns. We would be in trouble if they didn’t. No one is asking for a run down including schematics of security systems. What would help is an honest answer and basic understanding in plain simple English explaining laboratory security and contingency plans. There has to be contingency plans. How are viruses secured and at what point do scientists develop a safe and effective vaccine before taking the virus to the next step? That is something I think we would all like to know.

So far we know the world today has a host of viruses far more deadly than the world has ever seen. We also know those viruses were developed to infect humans and spread as efficiently as possible. We also know some of those viruses have been engineered to survive, thrive, and mutate when vaccines are introduced. Did scientists miss anything or are there new features in engineered viruses we are not being told about. The only thing lacking is an honest explanation that everything is being done to ensure those viruses are never introduced to the general public.

When we look at the communist track record we can’t help but think, there is a great possibility those viruses can and will be used as weapons. We know no one is going to make an announcement or post a warning. Given that fact we could say terrorist may have more morals than the average world leader today. With terrorists we stand a 50/50 chance they will deliver a warning and demand a ransom. With world leaders today, who knows.

We do see one sign that is rather frightening. Funding has dramatically increased in proportion to the deadly effects of each virus created in a laboratory. Not the humanitarian efforts grants were awarded to achieve. Today funding is directly linked to the dangers and effectiveness of those new super viruses. Remember, we are paying for all of this.

Did covid-19 come from a lab?

We know that the first human cases that were detected were detected in Wuhan in December 2019,” he said. “We also know that this virus belongs to a group of viruses that have their original niche in bat populations. In between these two points, we don’t know much.”

On 23 May, The Wall Street Journal claimed that US intelligence has evidence of several employees of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which carries out research on bat coronaviruses, being hospitalised with a respiratory illness similar to covid-19 in November 2019. US President Joe Biden subsequently ordered the US intelligence community to pursue a definitive conclusion on whether the virus spilled naturally from a wildlife reservoir, or from a lab.

The origin of the virus remains one of the most important unknowns of the pandemic. “We need to know where it came from,” says David Robertson, an evolutionary virologist at the University of Glasgow, UK. “We have to be worried that that could happen again.”

Last month, Science published a letter from 18 distinguished scientists, which argued that theories of accidental lab release and so-called zoonotic spillover (where an infectious disease jumps from an animal to a human) “both remain viable”.

The leak scenario involves researchers tinkering around with a virus, perhaps in gain of function experiments in which pathogens are modified to be more harmful in a bid to understand them better. This modified virus then somehow slipped through the lab’s biosafety net, which has been criticised by many for being full of holes.

For example, the virus has a “furin cleavage site”, a part of the spike protein that helps it to break into host cells. Many coronaviruses have this, but SARS-CoV-2 is the only member of its sub-genus Sarbecovirus to have one.

Another region of the spike protein, the “receptor binding motif”, appears to be oddly adapted to latch on to human cells. This adaptation was also observed in the original SARS virus, SARS-CoV-1, but only long after it had jumped to humans. The Wuhan strain of SARS-CoV-2 had it from the get-go.

These and other molecular peculiarities are consistent with a virus that has been manipulated in the laboratory, says Segreto.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8177866/

We can find hundreds of articles telling us where covid-19 originated and each one has its own theory on how the virus escaped a lab. We do have one fact we need to keep in mind. Science has been able to identify the origin of viruses for over 400 years. Covid-19 is the first virus in human history where science claims they cannot identify its origin. Where are scientists looking? Science has been testing every animal, bird, fish, plant, and mold known to mankind. We know all that testing came up with no answer. Bats are close, but not close enough to close the door on the issue. Then we have governments all over the world telling us not to worry. Add to that media going to great lengths to throw a cover on every question. When we add it all up what do we have? It appears we are left with one other area to look. The virus leaked from a lab somewhere in China. Was it on purpose of by accident? If China releases a new bio-weapon on Taiwan, I think we have an answer.

We also know the origin of SARS 2002-2004 was not discovered until 2017. It took 13 years to uncover that connection. The major difference between 2004 and 2020 is, 2004 did not have dozens of laboratories all over the world producing super viruses. 2004 also had a host of investigative reports. Fatalities in 2004 were over 8000. Covid-19 has claimed over 5 million lives. Is it a coincidence the SARS virus muted to such a deadly virus on its own or was covid-19 a product of science?

We need to take the threat we see today seriously. We also have to keep in mind, there is not one communist country who trusts another communist country. You would think history and the condition of the world today would wake people up. We see growing numbers of communists all over the world. Since turning to computerized elections, communists have taken key positions in governments all over the world. A few years ago open communists would have quickly ended their political carrier. Today communists are open and brazen. Immediately after the 2020 election in the US, communists came out of the closet. Some calling for the round up and elimination of all conservatives. For some reason communists seemed to have no fear of loosing their elected positions. There has to be a reason those people feel safe to voice their radically insane opinions. What do they know that gives them this new found courage? How deep is their control of elections?

When we see how deadly those viruses developed in laboratories can be, we see how important our vote is today. The last thing we need in office is radical thinking people saying they need to eliminate people who don’t agree with them. Common sense tells us, it is only a matter of time before they use those viruses against people they view as enemies. And radicals view the majority of the world as enemies.

How bad is this getting? Reports tells us about the Chinese testing covid variants on the Uyghur population.

Death is Everywhere’

Millions More Uyghurs Missing

In extraordinary detail, he describes how Government authorities are not only testing COVID-19 vaccines on detainees, but also from the population identified for indoctrination.

Since the Coronavirus started, the Chinese Government has been experimenting vaccines on the entire Uyghur population,” says Sidick. “Everywhere is locked down. There’s a big residential complex in Urumqi. Many hundreds of people live there in tall buildings, and the Government took one person from each family – altogether about 165 people – and quarantined them in a remote hospital, with one person in each room, and examined them every day.

A person from inside this facility told my source that authorities are taking blood twice per day for testing. They are given shots before they drink this Chinese medicine and then have to have an oral liquid test and also a blood test. What this is, is the Chinese authorities injected these people with the Coronavirus first, before they are given the vaccine. After they infected these people, they check on the results to see if the vaccine worked or not. I heard this directly from several people who have their family members there. These are all young people, 18, 19, 20 years or age. They didn’t experiment on old people.”

Uyghurs Suffering Horrific Healthcare Violations

Crimes against Uyghurs go way beyond testing covid variants.

One of these women, Mihrigul Tursun, spoke up against the cruel treatment of Uyghur Muslims and the several violations of ethical and healthcare rights by the Chinese government. In 2018, Tursun spoke at the Congressional Executive Commission on China in Washington D.C. She was imprisoned and her triplet children were taken away from her.

She experienced multiple beatings, electric shocks, forced injections, and was forced to take other medications. One of her children died at the camp and the other two survived, but have scars on their necks due to the feeding tube that was inserted.

I would rather die than go through this torture. I begged them to kill me,” Tursun said.

When we see one country using covid to carry out genocide on a group they decided to eliminate, we know the thought and plans exist. When we look at history we see a rather shocking similarity. In 1936 Nazi Germany hosted the Olympics while rounding up and murdering millions. Today history repeats itself in China. We cannot make the mistake of thinking genocide in Germany or China was or is restricted to a single religious group. That is exactly what radicals carrying out genocide want the world to believe. They want us to believe we don’t face the same threat. When Germany invaded Poland, the Nazis assassinated every politician, police officer, teachers, and most of the soldiers who surrendered. The Nazis enslaved the rest. Religion had little to do with the genocide the Nazis carried out. The Nazis viewed Poles as subhuman and convinced themselves it was their duty to kill and rule everyone in Poland and other countries. I was told, my entire family was lost to the Nazis in WWII and the Russians after WWII. We’ve seen how genocide is shared by socialists and communists and they never planned at stopping at a single race or religion. We are facing much worse today and sad to say, the socialists and communists already occupy key positions in governments all over the world. WWII also showed us, socialist and communists never trusted one another and it is each of their goals to totally eliminate the other. Do a little research on how Nazis treated Russian soldiers and how Russia treated German soldiers. Then try and tell me the genocide in WWII was restricted to Jews.

COVID-19 lab leak theory

The COVID-19 lab leak theory proposes that SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic) originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.[1][2] Central to the theory is the observation that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) is in the same city as the pandemic’s earliest known outbreak and from suspicions about the secretiveness of the Chinese government’s response.[3][4] Scientists from WIV had previously collected SARS-related coronaviruses from bats; allegations that they also performed undisclosed risky work on such viruses is central to some versions of the idea.[5][6] Some versions, particularly those alleging alteration of the SARS-CoV-2 genome, are based on speculation,[7] misinformation,[8] or misrepresentations of scientific evidence.

The idea that the virus was released from a laboratory (accidentally or deliberately) appeared early in the pandemic.[11][12] The theory gained popularity in America through promotion by conservative figures including president Donald Trump and other members of the Republican Party in the spring of 2020,[13] fomenting tensions between the US and China.[14] Many in American liberal media and political circles subsequently dismissed it as a conspiracy theory.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-19_lab_leak_theory

The fact that covid-19 has become a political platform serves a purpose. It allows the media to take one side or the other and report nothing but a series of senseless allegations against the opposing group that accomplish nothing. In stead of investigating the subject at hand, news agencies dream up new stories to focus on senseless details that do nothing to inform the general public about what is really happening and the threats that exist in real life. News agencies are not like those of 10 or 20 years ago when they reported the facts and allowed individuals to decide how they were going to view the subject at hand.

Today, what we don’t see on the news is more important and tells us more about the world we live in than the thousands of news stories posted on the the Internet and spread over the airwaves. Attacking the other group will never solve a problem. All attacks do is bring in incredible sums of ad revenue and sad to say, that is where the media focuses today.

Why don’t we see stories about what the Uyghurs are suffering in China today? Why don’t we read stories about the reports filed on government websites explaining new variants developed in laboratories? How come no one is looking into the timing of those new variants and outbreaks in China with the same symptoms? How come no one in the media or the government is looking at the obvious connections between variants developed in laboratories and covid cases that suddenly popped up in isolated regions in China? Not once but six times.

Media outlets are either for or against the vaccines. But neither one of them investigate the facts to show the benefits and draw backs those vaccines have. All we hear on the news is personal opinions supporting their stance. Opinions that do no one any good.

The world faces dangers we never saw before. Governments have control of viruses more deadly than anyone every imagined. Billions of dollars are invested in more deadly viruses and as we have seen, science is at a loss to develop effective and safe vaccines. All of this in a time when we see radical factions taking office positions in government and gaining control. Some of those political factions are no longer afraid to show their support for radial extremists. Look at Afghanistan. How did Afghanistan fall in a number of days and why were billions of dollars in military arms left behind? Why has the media dropped the subject so quickly? Why do the thousand of people left behind in Afghanistan no longer matter? What we don’t see on the news tells us more about the condition of this world than what we are spoon fed everyday. We know news and editing go together. They have been one of the same for generations. We’ve been through enough in our generation to know when we get the message, “nothing to see here,” we know something is up. Something the powers in charge don’t want us to see.

The Origins of Covid-19

The House Foreign Affairs Committee Minority Staff has continued to investigate the origins of

COVID-19, examining new information as it became available, including through expert testimony.

Based on the material collected and analyzed by the Committee Minority Staff, the preponderance of evidence suggests SARS-CoV-2 was accidentally released from a Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory sometime prior to September 12, 2019.

This report investigates the origin of this virus and looks at how it became a deadly pandemic.

We also believe the preponderance of the evidence proves the virus did leak from the WIV and that it did so sometime before September 12, 2019.

This is based upon multiple pieces of evidence laid out in the report, including:

  • The sudden removal of the WIV’s virus and sample database in the middle of the

night on September 12, 2019 and without explanation;

  • Safety concerns expressed by top PRC scientists in 2019 and unusually scheduled

maintenance at the WIV;

  • Athletes at the Military World Games held in Wuhan in October 2019 who

became sick with symptoms similar to COVID-19 both while in Wuhan and also

shortly after returning to their home countries;

  • Satellite imagery of Wuhan in September and October 2019 that showed a

significant uptick in the number of people at local hospitals surrounding the WIV’s

headquarters, coupled with an unusually high number of patients with symptoms

similar to COVID-19;

  • The installation of a People’s Liberation Army’s bioweapons expert as the head of

the WIV’s Biosafety Level 4 lab (BSL-4), possibly as early as late 2019; and

  • Actions by the Chinese Communist Party and scientists working at or affiliated

with the WIV to hide or coverup the type of research being conducted at there.

This report also lays out ample evidence that researchers at the WIV, in conjunction with U.S.

scientists and funded by both the PRC government and the U.S. government, were conducting gainof-function research on coronaviruses at the WIV, at times under BSL-2 conditions. Much of this research was focused on modifying the spike protein of coronaviruses that could not infect humans so they could bind to human immune systems.

The Cover-Up

In the original report, we laid out many of the ways the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) went to great lengths to cover up the initial epidemic, and how their cover-up likely turned what could have been a local outbreak into a global pandemic. The CCP detained doctors in order to silence them, and disappeared journalists who attempted to expose the truth. They destroyed lab samples, and hid the fact there was clear evidence of human-to-human transmission. And they still refuse to allow a real investigation into the origins. At the same time, the WHO, under Director General Tedros, failed to warn the world of the impending pandemic. Instead, he parroted CCP talking points, acting as a puppet of General Secretary Xi.

Thank God we have a few moral people in the right place. I don’t think anyone expects to see anything done with the information brought to light. We all expect all that information to be swept under the rug. Since the election we’ve seen one distraction after another. Hilary lived under the concept of creating a deception before moving forward on a plan. In plain simple English, accuse someone of a crime before you commit the crime. Distractions are a way of life and the life blood of politics today. When Hilary cries, “Russian collusion,” look at her ties with Russia or another world power. When we saw people accusing police of being the root of racism, we saw how that group jumped onto social media to raise funds to bail out criminals. Then we saw laws changed to eliminate bail. We saw criminals released with small bail amounts or no bail at all. Then the obvious happened. Crime soared. Criminals released on bail returned to the streets to commit more serious crimes including murder. News is filled with stories about criminals with long records released within hours and eventually adding murder to their resume. We only hear about the most serious crimes. Usually when they shoot an officer. Then we have a carrier criminal in Wisconsin released on bail who decided to run people over at a Christmas parade. This was all started by a group of people who claimed police officers were racist and a handful of politicians who supported their cause. That is only one example showing how a bad idea and rumors never lead to anything good. It shows that what appears to be a poor plan, or lack of a plan is actually a well conceived plan with hundreds of people involved. Each doing their job. Each aware of where the plan is leading. Which makes each of them guilty of all the crimes committed. They all have blood on their hands.

We lack the news media to put this all together. We learn from history by looking back and seeing obvious patterns. You don’t have to be a scientist to put the sequence of events together and clearly see what is happening and what their radical common goal is. And where it is leading. Eliminating police forces shows who those radical politicians have been working with. Government working with crime figures is nothing new. We saw it in the 1920’s and 1930’s. What we see is nothing new.

When we look at the technology law enforcement had to work with in 1930 and what they were able to accomplish we have to ask why law enforcement today is not able to accomplish far more. With all the funds, equipment, and technology used by law enforcement today, why do criminals basically have free reign? How can a man produce a video about mass killing and a DA in Wisconsin releases him on a $1000 bond? How can Epstein island operate without raising a number of red flags? Why did the court go out of their way to protect the criminal’s privacy during Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial? Why do criminals have more rights than the victims? With today’s technology there should be no problem bringing more than enough evidence to identify and convict the people who visited that island.

When we look at the southern border today, we have more questions than answers. Who is crossing the border and why? Dozens of people on the terrorist watch list have been arrested, Some after committing crimes, including murdering police officers. Once again, we only hear a small portion of the news. What we don’t hear about the people crossing the border is raising awareness. What is not explained is raising concern. Dozens of videos have surfaced showing hundreds of illegal immigrants flown all over the country in the middle of the night. The administration refuses to answer any questions. Which of course raises red flags. Are drugs also on those planes? Where are those immigrants going? What are they being used for? We are fed a steady diet to make us think, those immigrants are only tied into future elections. Is that the latest in a long line of distractions? Hunter Biden has relationships with people controlling large and sophisticated prostitution rings, human trafficking, slavery, and organ harvesting. Hunter was introduced to those factions when he was a director on the board of Burisma. Joe Biden knew who those people were. Joe Biden directed US funds in Ukraine’s election to ensure organized crime occupied key political positions. Many of those people both in political office and on Burisma’s board are now serving prison sentences.

After the election, Pelosi accused Trump of planning to take over the government and refuse to leave office. We have to ask where Pelosi came up with that idea. Was Pelosi aware of a plan in action to take over the government and cease power? When we see radical politicians call for the arrest and execution of people in the opposing party, we have to ask if that was a slip up and were they exposing plans that weren’t supposed to go public at that time. When we see what has happened leading into and after the election, we can’t help but be alarmed. Joe Biden warned, “you are going to need F15s and nukes to over throw this government.” Today that administration has dozens of lethal viruses at their disposal. It seems rather unlikely for a single celled virus to hatch a plan and mutate so it can spread more efficiently, and pose the same same threats as nerve agents. Are we really supposed to believe a single cell virus was able to put together such a plan and limit their attack to the human race? To date covid-19 has not posed a threat to any animals, birds, or any species on this planet. Covid-19 has been restricted to humans as if it was a plan. Today we are in danger of being threatened by our government or another government. In a second we can be held ransom with the threat of releasing a deadly virus able to wipe out human life. We’ve seen threats from terrorists using bio-weapons. Imagine a threat from a government with world conquest as a goal. Or a government facing the threat of loosing power. That threat exists today. It is not being talked about or covered like it should be. And that should make us all nervous.

A lab assistant involved in COVID-19 research in Taiwan exposed 110 people after becoming infected at work

A premiere Taiwanese academic institution will pay the equivalent of $5,400 in fines after reporting that a lab worker had been infected by SARS-CoV-2 while conducting research on the delta strain of the virus. The lab assistant left her lab and exposed 110 close contacts to the disease. According to Science, the case marks what is likely the first verified instance of a researcher being infected by the virus in lab.

Taiwan’s health minister, Chen Shih-chung, announced the fine at a press conference. The Central Epidemic Command Center reported that the worker, who is vaccinated and in her 20s, became symptomatic on Nov. 26, before testing positive. She handled infected animals and may have inhaled the virus after removing her protective equipment in the wrong order, mask first, according to Science. At the time, Taiwan was reporting no local transmission of COVID-19, and sequencing showed that the lab worker had been infected by a strain given to the lab at Academic Sinica, which was conducting drug and vaccine research.

With news today it is nearly impossible to tell what is fact and what has been fabricated as a distraction. We know China is hosting the 2022 Olympics and needs to distract from issues like covid-19, their laboratories, crimes against the Uyghurs, slave labor, trade, and a host of other issues. Human trafficking and human trade associated with North Korea are subjects we have not looked into. Add to that the help China has given North Korea to develop nuclear weapons. The fact China could drive all the nuclear weapons across the border, but chose to send North Korea materials, equipment, and technology so they could build their own missiles raises a few questions. Why take the slow road with North Korea spending all that time and money to basically start from scratch when all the missiles they need are on the other side of the river? It spells another distraction the Chinese can milk for a long time. As if they knew what was on the agenda and knew they needed a list of distractions.

People wanted answers, so why not fabricate one. China is not about to take the heat and the last thing they need is attention focused on any of their laboratories. So why not use a laboratory in Taiwan? It serves multiple purposes. It distracts us from China, provides an answer, and places doubts in Taiwan. A country China just happens to plan on invading. Is this story intended to make China look like the good guy charging in on a white horse to save the world? Something to consider.

Reports on a laboratory leak in Taiwan shows us, there are more countries developing lethal viruses than we can imagine. We would have never heard about virus research in Taiwan if it wasn’t for a report on that leak. How many other countries are involved? How advanced is Taiwan’s research? It only took a few weeks for one lab to take covid-19 and turn it into a nerve agent. Did Taiwan develop a similar variant? This paints a dim future for this world when we look at the big picture. Since the election in 2020, China has been threatening Taiwan with an invasion. What is holding China back? We would be fools is we believed China didn’t know Taiwan has labs developing virus strains. In the nuclear world we know there is this balance of power. In simple terms, the ability to destroy the world 100 times guarantees our safety. That has spread into viruses. The only difference is, no one is talking about it. The threat does exist. The news doesn’t want to discuss the issue. Governments want to keep it a secret. There is more than enough information about killer viruses on the Internet. Much of that information is on official government websites. So why is it being ignored. Is this the silence before the storm?

How Much Should The Public Be Told About Research Into Risky Viruses?

U.S. officials are weighing the benefits and risks of proposed experiments that might make a dangerous pathogen even worse — but the details of that review, and the exact nature of the experiments, aren’t being released to the public.

Those in favor of this virus tinkering say it’s necessary to prepare for the possibility that an animal pathogen circulating out in nature might mutate in a way that lets it start sickening humans and spreading widely. It’s not a theoretical danger; past pandemics, like the 1918 flu, killed millions.

Other biosecurity experts, however, question how much useful knowledge would really be gained from these studies. And in their view, it just isn’t worth the possibility that a lab-created virus might get unleashed — either by accident or because someone deliberately used it as a bioweapon.

https://www.kpbs.org/news/2020/01/21/how-much-should-the-public-be-told-about-risky

Of course there is a limit to how much knowledge is shared. The American public accepts that fact and when dealing with government agencies, has accepted that fact. The average American can tell when information has been edited for security reasons and accepts that fact. The problem is, the current administration looks at the entire American public as idiots, unable to understand when they are being lied to. Every parent will tell you how they can figure out when their children are lying. As if that is a built in natural human instinct. That explains why this administration has labeled parents as a major threat to their form of government.

When Hitler marched into Poland, he eliminated all the politicians, educators, and of course everyone in the military. In Hitler’s speeches, he claimed Polish people were an inferior race. So he eliminated all the educated Poles in order to prove his theory and keep his war machine moving. As Hitler progressed across Europe, he repeated the same process over and over again.

When we see an administration that treats the people they represent like children, we see the same concepts developed by Hitler taking shape in our generation. When we take a look at what has happened in major cities across America over the past 10 or 20 years, we begin to see how plans were laid long before we could put facts together to see what the ultimate goal was.

God’s Trends

Genesis chapter 6 tells us about how God destroyed a planet. Genesis 19 tells us why God destroyed a city. Is God establishing a new trend? If we looked at a quick review of the stories in the Bible and the order they were recorded, we allow the Bible to answer that question itself.

The Bible gives us little information telling us what sins led to the destruction of this world in the flood. That makes little sense from a human point of view, but all the sense in the Universe to God. Look back at the original sin. God told Adam not to eat the fruit from one tree in the garden. What did God call that tree?

The LORD God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. But the LORD God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden– except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.” Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” (Gen 2:15-18 NLTse).

God called that tree, “he tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” It was never God’s intend to teach Adam about evil. Why would God waste His time teaching Adam about evil? That was never part of God’s plan for this planet, but He was ready for it if and when that ever occurred.

We have to take note of the context of every story in the Bible and take it exactly how it was recorded. “God placed the man in the Garden. It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” For one thing, we have the rule of repetition used here. Genesis chapter 2 is not the first time God repeated something. God, like every author, and every good teacher repeats Himself to draw attention to important details. What important detail is pointed out in this story? God never told Eve about the tree of good and evil. God only told Adam about the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and about death. When we see God using repetition, we need to stop, review a few details, and ask a few questions. God repeated details to slow us down, make us think, and ask the obvious questions. Why did God only tell Adam about the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? Why didn’t God tell Eve? It may be because Adam was of course responsible for Eve. That is the type of answer that is going to rile a few feathers in today’s society. Making a comment like that today could lead to getting the Bible banned, or at least getting you banned from social media. At the very least, winding up in social media jail.

Since the election in 2020 we have seen a relentless attack on God like this generation has never seen. Don’t be fooled by the thought the attacks are centered on the former President, or on what we now refer to as conservatives. We are of course being attacked. On the other hand, everyone knows the attacks contain a number of distractions. Way too many distractions to count. That’s because Satan is leading those attacks and he wants to distract us from the fact, those attacks are against God and His Word we refer to as the Bible. Open your eyes. The majority of attacks focus on simple facts in Genesis. The family structure God created and creation itself to name a few. CRT and other cups of poison are direct attacks Genesis and creation. Multiple genders, changing genders, and a host of other laws congress been passing and spending trillions of dollars on are direct attacks on God and creation. Why? Of course Satan wants to turn people away from God. Casting doubts on creation is one arrow in his arsenal. But there is another, more important reason. God wrote Genesis using a specific trend. A style of writing we refer to as repetition. We’ve covered one example. There are dozens of questions we could ask about the fact, God only told Adam about the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. One reason jumps out. God was not about to waste His time writing a list of sins the devil is going to create. When we jump forward in this story we see another reason.

The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the LORD God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.'” “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves. (Gen 3:1-7 NLTse).

In Genesis 3:1-7 see the words, eat and ate repeated a number of times. Each time they are associated with a choice. The main question is, what is the result of that choice. Or the wrong choice. We know they did not instantly die. Death came much later. The phrase, eyes opened is also repeated. Of course that was the result of eating the fruit. What were their eyes opened to? “You will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” Which was the promise from Satan. “They suddenly felt shame at their nakedness.” Which was the true result.

We can take the results of that first sin and plug it into what we see today. What do we get when we compare shame and nakedness to what we see today? For one thing, sin has and will always cause shame. No one can argue with that. Which tells us why the left is relentless in their pursuit to shame conservatives. The left has one answer for everything. If you don’t agree with them, they call you a racist. Their reply to a number of questions never made any sense. Until you read the Bible which tells us exactly what the left is doing. They live a life of sin with endless shame. We basically call that a conscience. Like it or not the Holy Spirit is trying to reach them 24/7. They are resisting the Holy Spirit with all their might so all they know is a life of constant shame. Their goal in life is to cast that shame onto everyone who doesn’t agree with them and force everyone to live like them. It is an old psychological trick as old as sin. If you make everyone sin like you, the shame goes away. It didn’t work for Eve and it will never prove successful. But it is the best the devil has to offer.

The first few chapters in Genesis explain why the devil is focusing his attack on God and creation. When we cover the first few chapters in the Bible, we are basically given the knowledge to study the entire Bible. The first few chapters of Genesis have everything we need to equip ourselves to be far wiser than any Bible scholar who ever walked this earth. It only takes a few minutes. Eve was given a choice. Adam was given a choice. God arranged the stories in Genesis to give us a choice. We can either look at those stories, work with the Holy Spirit, slow down, ask the questions that pop into our heads, and learn to search those stories for the answers, or we can hang up the phone with God and go about our lives hoping for the best. God is trying to equip us with the weapons we need to fight the devil, his demons, and the human agents those demons work with. Which are getting easier and easier to see with every passing day. We all know the Bible shifted from wars in the Old Testament to peace and love in the New Testament. How many times did they try to trick Jesus and He provided a simple answer no one could argue with? God is offering us that same knowledge. That fruit had two forms of knowledge. That fruit offered the knowledge of good and evil. We still have a choice. Which are you going to choose?

Where was God in the Riots

I am sure there are a number of people asking where God was in 2020. During the riots hundreds of business owners must have asked that question as they watched their businesses being looted then burned to the ground. We live in the modern age. How many of those store owners watched live video of people breaking into their stores, steal everything, then start the store on fire. Those store owners put all their money, time, blood, sweat, and tears into those stores only to watch everything go up in flames. Can you imagine what they went through while sitting at home watching all of that unfold on their surveillance cameras. For millions it was a time to test their faith. Imagine owning a store where the riots erupted with the ability to monitor surveillance camera inside and outside your store from your phone where you were continuously tempted to check those cameras every minute of the day. Even though the app on your phone was programmed to send an alarm to your phone the moment the motion detectors sensed movement, would you trust the senors and app, or you would physically check those cameras every few minutes? Especially when the mostly peaceful protests were just outside your door. We have this innate sense to gather information. I suspect the vast majority of those store owners monitored the news along with a number of social media outlets where live videos were uploaded for viewing. For the first time in history we had the ability to watch the news unfold before our eyes in every major city across the nation. Imagine the flood of emotions spreading across the nation as shop owners witnessed their businesses going up in flames. Not to mention the millions of employees who knew it would be some time before they could return to work. How were they going to pay their rent and bills? What did the future hold? You can be sure there were millions of prayers and questions directed towards Heaven.

Without questions, faith was being tested. But how? It would be interesting to put together a book or film using the videos taken during the riots of 2020 along with the testimonies of business owners and employees. Imagine the stories we would hear. I am sure there are quite a number that would bring people to tears. So we have to ask, where are the stories covering the losses in those days and the people behind those stories? Has the media lost sight of the humanitarian side of the story behind the story?

Then there is the other side of the story. No one has seen any interviews with the people who took to the streets to protest in those days. It seemed no one was interested in finding out why those people decided to break into stores and take anything they could carry. Or send people’s hopes, dreams, and hard work up in smoke. Okay there was that murder of George Floyd that unfolded live, uploaded via cell phones and social media. But we have to ask, why didn’t people use a little common sense and give the system time to examine the facts and allow the justice system to run its course? After all, wasn’t that the question at hand? Does the justice system treat all people equally no matter what their race, creed, or color is? How is that question going to be answered when a small radical portion of society is allowed to dictate what is fair, and what is not fair? What kind of society is created when mob rule is allowed to dictate justice?

When those protests began, the demand for justice was at the heart of the message. That message quickly turned into rioting, looting, and burning. Where is the justice in that? One group of people shouted for justice as another group looted and burned. In every sense of the word, those people were displaying their faith, or lack of faith. Everyone had a choice. You want to talk about equality, take a look at equality as a whole, not one tiny portion of equality or justice you want to dissect and twist to emphasize your point, or political stand. Examine faith as a whole.

Those who lost businesses, income, and everything they worked for knew their faith was being tested. That same test applied to those who took to the streets to peacefully protest for justice. Some of them believed their actions would call attention to an issue near and dear to their hearts. And there were some whose faith was tested in quite a different way. They had a choice of respecting the property of others, or throwing all respect out the window and taking what they wanted. Not what they needed, but whatever appeared to have any value. Their faith was being tested on the same level as everyone’s faith in the courts of Heaven where everyone is judged by the same law. And that law never wavers.

After asking why more videos from inside those stores were never featured on news stories, we have to ask why phone videos taken outside those stored were shown none stop for days and weeks at a time. People took cell phone videos of the crimes they committed and posted them on the Internet like trophies of their accomplishments. People displayed their videos of the riots like they were proud of their work. In some way they used those videos as a means of justifying their actions. Their message was to demand justice. Their means was to break the law so their message would be heard and understood. No one has to read the Bible to know, stealing is against the law. Every country in the world has civil laws against stealing. That is universal. The rioters and looters knew they were breaking the law. They dwelt with that by recording and posting their crimes on the Internet. Which doesn’t make any sense no matter how you look at it or no matter which side of the issue you stand on. Beyond any shadow of doubt, people chose to break a number of laws to deliver a message. That message was equal justice for all. Did they make their point? Has anything changed since that message was delivered?

Of course things changed. A few people were arrested and charged. Most of them were set free on a signature bond and out on bail within a few hours. A justice system we see alive and well two years later. Has that system of justice made this country safer? Has it made life better for everyone? We can look at the news and see, even though the riots have ceased, thefts have risen. Are those thefts still a part of the message they are attempting to deliver? It seems the message has been kicked to the side of the road while thefts and robberies are quickly rising. The only thing that has not changed is, their faith is still being tested.

When we look back at the total picture we see how the riots in 2020 were used as an excuse to release criminals on signature bonds. Some of the highest ranking democrats helped fashion a plan to release criminals and used the cry for justice as an excuse to introduce a new, one sided form of justice. The riots were all about justice. Democrats responded by releasing criminals arrested during the riots. That concept of quick released spread into all aspects of crime and has continued for over two years. A quick look at the news in mid 2022 shows how criminals on every imaginable charge go through a revolving door. Arrested one day and out the same day on a signature bond or very low bail. Many of the criminals were arrested on weapons charges and violent crimes. In 2022 it is not unusual to see stories of mass shootings where the shooter was out on bail. Many of those criminals are facing 20-30 court cases. Some nearly one hundred and some have over a hundred arrests. In no time at all they are back out on the streets. Keep in mind, the riots in 2020 were all about equal justice. What kind of justice do the victims have? What kind of justice do parents have when their children are slain in the streets and the shooter is back out on the streets in less than 24 hours. Is that the equal justice people took to the streets for in 2020?

During the riots of 2020 we’ve seen the full spectrum of faith being tested from one end to the other. Some people felt like Job. Loosing everything they worked for while watching it go up in smoke. Those people had to dig deeper than most of us ever had to dig to cling onto their faith. Some may have relied on insurance or savings during those dark times. But there are people out there who knew how the system would work and they would be lucky to collect pennies on the dollar for their losses. Some people felt certain the government would step in to save the day. We are past that belief. As expected the government gave billions to companies showing record profits during the covid-19 shut downs and the riots. For some reason the government was more concerned about helping the criminals than the business owners who suffered major losses. That ranged from mom and pop inner city stores to high end downtown luxury retailers. Who do you think was heavily insured and who do you think the insurance companies catered to and who did the insurance companies shaft in the process? Within that spectrum of faith is a spectrum of help and fair play from insurance companies as well as government agencies we are able to openly view. Those levels of service also reflect their levels of faith. Did insurance companies treat everyone fairly on the same levels of justice? Did the people protesting for justice pay attention to that system at work, or were they only concerned with the tidbit of justice they cut out claiming that was the entire view of justice the world had to see? Did the rioters decided it was their role to expose their concept of justice to the world while ignoring every other aspect of fairness?

When we begin to look back on what unfolded in 2020, we begin to see sides of the story that seem to have been over looked. Today we call it censoring or selective news and media coverage. No matter what we call it, we can all admit, we never saw 1/1000th of the story. Even so, we all feel qualified to make judgments on what happened based on the information we received and witnessed. Which brings up another measure of faith. The faith we have in the information we gather. In every case, we have to consider the source. But lets take a look at another source.

Without a doubt, the events of 2020 were recorded on hundreds of store videos, cameras installed by cities to combat crime, and of course, personal phones. We have millions of hours of video to review. More than any single person could review in a life time. All of that pales to God’s ability to see, record, and review every detail of every person’s life. Which should be at the center of everyone’s faith, or lack of faith. It takes as much effort to ignore God’s convictions as it does to cling onto the love and hope God holds out during trying times such as these. The fact of the matter is, faith can be calculated and measured based on the amount of time and effort put into reviewing events that unfold. When little time and effort is invested, little faith is received. The same is true when faith is compared to conviction. If crimes are committed and little or no time is exerted to review why that crime was committed, little is done to see and accepted God’s hand in changing that attitude. It is true, people struggle with the crimes they commit and the conscience that goes along with those crimes. People are known to run away from those convictions rather than deal with them. Which is the biggest oxymoron about that entire event in 2020. A cry for justice ignited the entire scene across the world. Every single one of those protesters claimed they wanted justice. Those who committed crimes during those protests and riots couldn’t wait to trample over justice and bury it as deep as they could. A large part of justice is the conviction it carries. Without the conviction of a conscience, there can never be justice of any form. That’s the way it has always been and the way it will always be. What started out as protests for justice quickly turned out as a war against God’s convicting Spirit. While on the other hand, the results of those riots quickly spread as an enlightenment of God’s will that comes only from the most sever trials.

This is a letter designed to be sent to state representatives to share ideas on what needs to be addressed and what can be done on a few choice subjects. Feel free to copy and modify to send to your own state representatives.

It seems we have two events dominating the news today. One event provides a simple solution to the other. The movie 2000 Mules shows how cell phone tracking can be used to gather evidence. The other is the number of mass shootings that is on the increase. One of the biggest problems we face today is criminals released on bail, somehow arming themselves, and taking one or more lives. Or worse, battling police. I listened to the mayor of Milwaukee who should have been studying the problem with his staff and listening to the people he is paid to represent. As usual, he is stuck on a single solution that will never work. Based on experience, people who claim there is one solution to a complicated problem are always wrong and their idea will always fail.

What we need from you and the state congress is a series of laws that will allow law enforcement and judges to work within the law using available technology to make this a safer state. We are not going to stop easy bail release. Someone is always going to slip through the cracks. But we can work together to change that. The mayor did mention a hot line to report criminals. What he didn’t mention is the fact, if people use that hot line they submit themselves to real dangers when the system releases the criminal they report within a few hours. The streets have that unwritten code on snitches. Turning the criminal back on the streets forces the people helping to end crime to a life of unnecessary fear. We need a no bail, high bail, or at the very least, mandatory tracking using ankle bracelets when the criminal was involved in any criminal hot line.

We also need laws that make it easier for judges to allow search warrants for locations criminals visit if they are caught with a firearm while on bail. Here is where we need a computer program that would include locations of known and suspected criminals. Those criminals hove to get their weapons from someone. Most likely local law enforcement has a pretty good idea. When someone on bail commits a crime with a firearm, laws need to allow law enforcement to access records that track movements. The computer system would include hot spots, locations that indicate possible criminal activity. Which would narrow down the number of search warrants served. The law would have to give judges a set of probable causes to issue search warrants. It would be a good idea to have people released on bail sign an agreement making them responsible for search warrants and aware they are being tracked when they are released with an ankle bracelet. They may think they can find a loophole in the law by meeting at a public place such as a supermarket or back alley when firearms are passed, but with camera systems and face recognition software it would help narrow down suspects. The key is to create enough success stories by getting unregistered guns off the streets and the public a sense of safety. After an initial system is created it can be refined to include early alerts where the tracking software works with mapped locations of suspected activity and eventually in real time using face recognition software. Once again, release forms will have to be signed by those released on bail with ankle bracelets, laws will have to allow judges freedom to grant search warrants, and of course we need penalties for criminals on bail who do possess firearms. The goal is to work with the technology we have to catch those on bail with illegal firearms before they commit a crime. Another software refinement would include a call to a 911 center, entering the location, and instantly linking to the system tracking ankle bracelets. When a connection is made, that information is displayed on laptops in law enforcement vehicles. The system would also display pictures and information of possible suspects wearing ankle bracelets in the general area at the time. Of course law enforcement would have better ideas how to refine such a system.

On another subject, I am sure you are looking into laws to protect children in the school system. Other states have passed laws to protect children from CRT and subjects that should not be taught is schools. Reviewing those laws is a good resource and starting point. Teachers are licensed in Wisconsin. Which makes it easier to deal with. I have seen this 25 years ago when I was called to a meeting in Muskego when the school labeled my 6 year old daughter a threat because she questioned some of the things taught in public school 25 years ago. Back then I considered it an isolated incident and did not take any actions other than to put my daughter in a private school. Which gives you an idea how much this has been able to spread.

If you compare CRT to the original writings from those who founded communism, it is a clear copy and paste with a few updates. Federal law on discrimination still contains a sub note at the bottom that basically says, discrimination laws do not apply to members of the communist party and their affiliations. Number one, with a few references, CRT can be identified as a communist affiliation. Number two, continued education for licensed teachers has to be updated to inform teachers of new laws. Number 3, school board members should also be licensed. Which would include an education requirement. Fees can be waived for low income participants. Number 4, reporting teachers and school board members should be a stream lined system. The education system should be a self governing system much like Real Estate licensing.

This is the hard part. Any new laws have to be open enough so teachers can address communist threats within the classroom. Back when I was in school some teachers were WWII vets and very good at teaching communists and socialists threats. Laws cannot paint teachers into a corner where they loose the ability to teach students about historical facts. I remember when the Polish President visited the While House in 2020 and offered to send all the teachers we need to come into classrooms and offer a first hand account of what it is to live under communist rule. Maybe Wisconsin can take advantage of that offer.

One picture of the latest school shooting raised another question. A surveillance camera saw the shooter approaching the school. If you served in the military you would know 5 seconds of warning are all you need. Airports use face recognition. It would not take a great deal of programming to add weapon recognition to such a program connected to school camera systems. An early warning system could sound an alarm, lock down a school, and alert law enforcement saving precious seconds. We have the technology so why don’t we use it?

The Texas shooting raised other questions. How did an unemployed 18 year old high school dropout pay for $4000 of guns and ammunition? Not to mention, how did he get a truck worth at least $18,000. Based on the fact he obtained those weapons through legal channels it is not likely a third party was involved. But raised the question that one day that possibility could exist.

Most people accept the fact the Internet and other avenues collect information. Spying is another popular term. The Internet allows a great deal of information to be gathered and used within an instant. Search for a washer and dryer on the Internet and conduct a search for anything or visit any site. Within 1 minute your browser displays ads for washers and dryers.

The signals the shooter in Texas send raised red flags and shows how the Internet is programmed for ads and sales but lacks the ability to detect and analyze warning signs. Some where that ability exists, but how are they designed and used. And how do we initiate new laws that protect the 1st Amendment while protecting people? There are certain steps that could make that possible and protect the state and companies involved away from obvious law suits.

Purchasing weapons requires an application. That state application could be arranged to grant permission for Internet chatter to be examined. Of course no one wants the state directly involved in data gathering. A contractor could be chosen and licensed in a way to ensure their employees pass security requirements. And insurance. And of course proper Internet security. Since the state licenses Title Companies with security agreements half the work is done. The company gathering and investigating Internet data would also undergo state approved training and testing so the criteria they operate under is fluid. Then of course a system to alert law enforcement to determine the next step. Non invasive visits by law enforcement may be the next step. Which could be covered in the state application to purchase a weapon. If a search is required, laws would have to guide law enforcement as well as judges. It is not going to be an easy task.

We also see the need for reporting Internet communication containing threats. Here we need laws to guide law enforcement as well as judges in the steps taken. The state may need a department of psychologists able to analyze the information and rate it. A law would grant information for steps necessary to defuse threats while protecting the rights of those involved. If threats exist and weapons need to be confiscated, the law would spell out steps required for innocent people to regain their property. Such as evaluations, interviews, so on and so forth. We have to protect against the possibility of ex-spouses or others filing false reports. So fines will have to be included for false reports.

Most of this points to new information that will have to be covered in concealed carry license training. Which may not be a bad idea for everyone who chooses to purchase a firearm. A one time license may be something to look at. Obviously people need training and pass an exam to get a drivers license. Which is a subject that has been discussed. We have a system of licensed instructors across the state and when you consider the Texas shooter paid over $4000 adding a nominal license fee is not out of the question. Seeing we are in the middle of trying to solve a complicated problem, continued education and licensing is not out of the question. Continued education for concealed carry could be done on the Internet.

Insurance is another issue. Owning a business I would consider it insane to carry a firearm without insurance. Which is another way to introduce back ground checks and agreements to access and investigate Internet chatter. The state regulates all business licenses as well as insurance. Not many businesses address the subject of people carrying arms while on the job. The few that do could help tighten security with a few simple laws. Employers who allow or require firearms while on the job would have to require insurance. The state could cover that in the license agreement the state grants with every business license. Insurance companies could require additional training, testing, and back ground checks. At the very least verify required licenses.

Most of what we need to tighten security are in place. Unfortunately we know tightening security on legal firearms is only a tiny part of the problem. The major problem lies in illegal firearms. I can imagine the state and local municipalities have dozens of existing laws to deal with illegal firearms. It is only a matter of enforcing those laws, In the mean time I guess the best thing to do is show the general public something is being done to address the situation at hand and hope the general public begins to do their job by electing representatives willing to work on the crime problem and stop demanding their one step solution that will never accomplish a thing.

There is one thing I am not sure you are aware of. I added the ability to add a charge card program to a website. A minute after I uploaded a scanned copy of the back of my drivers license the site asked a series of questions about where I lived in certain years, who I lived with and questions about income during certain years. The amount of information that code on drivers licenses amazed me. Square and Stripe are the most common companies offering online credit card services. Those companies should be able to offer ideas how to create security systems and back ground checks. It is obvious something went wrong with that kid in Texas when he ordered those riffles online. Someone dropped the ball.

Shades of Gray Part 2

The thing that amazes me about religion is, there are so many religions. I’m not sure how many there are, but they all believe in death and one type of resurrection or another. Most believe in some type of judgment period. Even if you believe in some form of reincarnation, there is a judgment period that looks at the life you lived and the findings determine what type of life form you return as. For the rest of us, we believe in one form of Heaven and hell. And of course there are versions of something in between. In any case, each religion is founded upon some sort of judgment system. Then of course there are those who don’t believe in any type of god. They believe we exist then die and that is about it. As if matter is some type of controlling factor. Of course that branches out into many different forms of beliefs. Some rather difficult and many impossible to explain.

What seems rather confusing is the fact, the three major religions in this world all believe in the same God. Yes, Muslims, Jews, and Christians all believe in the same God. From there each of the major religions disagrees on the concept of God. Not to get into details, because people have disagreed on the major concepts for thousands of years, the fact of the matter is, each of the those three major religions branches out into dozens and hundreds of sub or splinter religions. In the United States alone it is estimated Christianity has over 300 denominations. But that doesn’t matter. The one thing they have in common is death and some type of resurrection. Before that resurrection each religion has a belief in a judgment period.

No one really knows actually what happens during that judgment period. One of the major Christian denominations believes the last generation will get a second chance to redeem themselves they refer to as, “left behind.” In either case, the left behind believers do adhere to a judgment process. There has to be a judgment process. Before Jesus returns to take the those who are living to Heaven, God, Jesus, and the angels have to know who is going to Heaven, who is going to hell, and in their case, who is left behind. But no one seems to talk about that judgment period. Maybe because, the Bible doesn’t contain any story explaining the judgment process. What do we need to do to gain salvation? That is the sticking point and the question that divided Christians into so many denominations. They are not divided by what is in the Bible. They are divided by what is not in the Bible. Take the left behind theory. A concept based on one verse in the Bible. They produced a number of books and movies on the subject, all written on one verse in the Bible and a host of human imagination. Of course people may argue their concept is based on more than a single verse, but how do those verses explain God’s judgment system? How do those verse explain the scene, time, location, and process God’s judgment follows?

Questions about the judgment system have been around a long time. A number of denominations claimed to have found the answer. In simple terms they clung on to the belief, Jesus died for our sins. So dozens of concepts sprang from that belief ranging from once saved, always saved, to a variety of works and faith. But not one of them has been able to explain a single step in God’s actual judgment process. But wait, the Bible has a couple of stories written by prophets who were drawn to Heaven to witness God’s judgment process. The problem is, God’s judgment exceeds human understanding and is beyond any court proceedings in this world. Is that a good reason for three major religions and hundreds of denominations to ignore the subject? It seems to me, if God put the entire process in writing and we have it all in black and white, why don’t we sit down to study the subject and learn from the facts we have. Maybe because the answer is not what the majority of people want to hear.

The Bible is filled with stories about God’s judgment. Look at the flood.

And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (Gen 6:5-8 KJV).

Of course that story contains giants and a comment on the sons of God and the daughters of men. Hundreds of books have been written on those giants and how people want to interpret the sons of God and daughters of men. But who has written a word or page about the judgment process God followed before He passed judgment on the world? This is evidence, people want to ignore the judgment process and are more than willing to run down dozens of rabbit holes with a fraction of information the judgment process has in the Bible.

Imagine a scale with the brightest white on one side and darkest black on the other. In between is every imaginable shade of gray blending from one to another. Of course Jesus is on the bright white side of the scale and satan on the black side of that scale. We all lie somewhere in between. Every religion agrees with that concept.

John described what he saw about the judgment system when he was translated to Heaven in what is called, Jesus’ Revelation. Which basically means, a letter John was told to write where Jesus reveals the end of the world and events that will happen. People often find Revelation confusing because of the timelines recorded in the book. In short, John is shown exactly what will happen in the future. The vision contains symbols. After viewing the vision, John is obviously bewildered and confused. An angel or other being comes to John and explains the vision in terms John can understand and explain to the world. To properly explain the vision, the angel has to back up to historical events John is familiar with and go forward from there. With that in mind, the average reader can read the vision, then examine events at or before John’s time that help to explain the future event. Once the timelines in Revelation are understood, the entire book is easier to understand. We need to look at one single timeline that spans three chapters.

And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. (Rev 14:13-20 KJV).

Most Christians know, the harvest is a symbol describing the judgment process. Although many explain the harvest simply as the end of the world, the judgment process needs to be completed before the end of the world. Thrusting in the sickle points to the end of the growing season, which is known as the harvest. Jesus clearly explained this symbolism when He explained one of His parables.

He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. (Mat 13:37-40 KJV).

Jesus leaves the temple once the judgment process is completed. That is the scene John witnessed and wrote about. Turn the page and the next chapter tells us the next event.

And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. (Rev 15:1 KJV).

Turn the page again to see what the first plague is.

And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshiped his image. (Rev 16:1-2 KJV).

When the judgment process is complete, the last seven plagues begin. The first plague places a sore on people who decided to follow the beast. In simple terms, the world will have no problem seeing the difference between people who are saved and people who are lost for eternity.

When we look around the world today, we need to ask ourselves if we are in the middle of the judgment process, or if the judgment process has finished. It is not difficult to see who has chosen to take sides with the beast, and those who refuse to bend the knee to the devil. As time marches on, we can see daily increases in crimes of all types. Those siding with satan are working over time to legalize all kinds of crimes, release criminals, force the world to accept their views on sin, and the list goes on and grows everyday. Looking back at the flood we see, God didn’t share a whole lot of information for us to go on. “GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Which is a vivid description of what we see today in this world. One example. The president has a pedophile son on crack. The only solution he can come up with is to turn the world into crackhead pedophiles. Which is a common view on sin. If everyone does it, it must be okay. For some reason people seem to think, if the world agrees with a sin, there is no way God will condemn everyone for that sin. A sort of, majority rules concept. In a way, the president is trying to save his son by condemning the world. Or he may have reached a point, nothing matters more than money and personal pleasure. He may have given up on being saved and decided to take what he can from this world with the time he has. How far down that scale from white to black is he operating?

For some reason God decided not to explain details telling us what sins the world was involved with before the flood. Just that most people were past the gray scale and into shades of black. When we think of that, our minds drift to dozens of people in the public eye. We always tend to want to determine which sins drifted too close to black. We all seem to have the answer to that with no study and no prayer, as if God gave us some built in knowledge we refer to as common sense. If that was the case, why didn’t people before the flood use that common sense and stay within safe areas of gray? Are there safe areas of gray on that scale. Are there sins God will simply overlook and others that bring instant condemnation?

The Bible also has a number of other stories about people, tribes, cities, and other who went overboard, into the shades of black where there was no return. We all heard the story about Sodom. What information do we have about that city?

And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake. And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place. (Gen 18:32-33 KJV).

But before they retired for the night, all the men of Sodom, young and old, came from all over the city and surrounded the house. They shouted to Lot, “Where are the men who came to spend the night with you? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them!” So Lot stepped outside to talk to them, shutting the door behind him. “Please, my brothers,” he begged, “don’t do such a wicked thing. (Gen 19:4-7 NLTse).

When we look at the destruction of Sodom, we don’t have a lot of details, but one detail was pointed out. The men of the city wanted to have sex with the angels who visited Lot. That seems to be one point people feel safe with when they judge others. It also happens to be one point we see the world drifting into on an ever increasing rate. Are details becoming to come together? They are if you agree with them. Few people will argue, the description of that one sin pretty much summed up the reason God send angels to Sodom to destroy it. But what about Abraham and his deal with ten righteous men. What are we supposed to learn from that? Can the existence of a few righteous people save a city of sinners from destruction? We may never know since the angels didn’t seem to find ten righteous people. The majority of Lot’s family decided to stay in Sodom and face the consequences. For some reason they lost their faith in God and lost sight of God. They had drifted too close to the dark side.

Were there other sins Sodom was involved with we are just not seeing because we were satisfied with that one sin and decided not to look any further? Let’s examine a few simple facts. Lot entered Sodom a rich man. One of the richest men in the city. Lot left with little more than the clothes on his back and his two daughters who of course started two new generations that led to two tribes and nations that are thorns in our sides until this day. But the question is, what happened to Lot’s money? It seems Sodom was filled with what we refer to as scammers today. The rich country boy didn’t stand a chance in the city. We have proof of that in another story we refer to as the prodigal son. There is nothing wrong with one story shedding a little light on another story in the Bible that teaches us lessons in life. Most people us the Bible as a guide to learn lessons in life. As a matter of fact, if we backed up a few chapters we find another interesting story, a complete contrast to the destruction of Sodom.

When Abram heard that his nephew Lot had been captured, he mobilized the 318 trained men who had been born into his household. Then he pursued Kedorlaomer’s army until he caught up with them at Dan. There he divided his men and attacked during the night. Kedorlaomer’s army fled, but Abram chased them as far as Hobah, north of Damascus. Abram recovered all the goods that had been taken, and he brought back his nephew Lot with his possessions and all the women and other captives. (Gen 14:14-16 NLTse).

When we pay attention to details, we see things most people miss. Abraham attacked the largest army the world had seen to that day with only 318 men. Who in their right mind would attack an army when they are out numbered somewhere between 100 to 1 and 1000 to 1? Needless to say, that took a lot of courage and faith. Now we notice, those men were, “born into his household.” Up to this point, Abraham didn’t have any children. That was a pivotal point made later in chapter 16. In other words, the Bible is making a point. It was a spiritual birth those men underwent. That is what it took for them to face that army. There was no way they would have the faith to face that army if they relied on Abraham. Each of those men needed a direct connection with God to have the courage, faith, strength, and skills to face that army.

When we look at that story about Abraham and his men saving Lot, and the destruction of Sodom, we see a host of stories in between. We see Abraham talking directly with God, then taking matters into his own hands. Most of us know the consequences that resulted from Abraham’s first son, Ismael. We are still living with that curse. We also see a host of other lessons that explain shades of gray few of us consider as dangerous. Which brings us to the point. We can read one sentence in the Bible and walk away thinking we have the answer we wanted, and convince ourselves, that is the only detail we need to know. Or we can have someone study for us. But where does that get us? That would have gotten Abraham’s men no where. They would have been the first to run. When we look at the political atmosphere today, we all know who is going to be the first to run and hide and who we want at our side if God ever gives the order like the orders we’ve seen in the Old Testament.

We have a few points to consider. Do we judge the entire city of Sodom based on a group of people who surrounded Lot’s house? Or do we take a step back to look at the facts and draw more out of the story than what preachers tend to spoon feed people. Were all the people in Sodom as sinister as the people who wanted to have sex with those angels? Or were other people satisfied in the shade of gray they chose to live? What about the speed at which that influence spread and why did the people in Sodom allow that influence to spread? It seems we are in the same position today that Sodom was between the attack on their city, their safe return, and its destruction. Somewhere in that timeline a group of demented people were able to influence a good number of the people in Sodom. Keep in mind, every one of those people in Sodom were taken captive. Each of those people were saved by Abraham. They all witnessed the miracle first hand. Why did so many people choose to ignore that miracle and follow others from the gray area into total darkness?
