It has come to me that the majority of youth do not know the truth about the global warming narrative. Many adults do not understand it either. We often just digest what ever verbal statement comes out and agree with it without deep research. I have long thought that schools are designed based on manipulating minds rather than actually teaching one to deeply think and research. So let’s get into the deep thinking and truth about global warming. The stuff they do not want you to know. Thinking mind’s are dangerous! Be dangerous!

We often hear about Tesla and their wonderful electric cars. Electric cars leave us with a cleaner pure environment and no toxic air to breath. That is the corporate (money makers) narrative because they need you to buy their product. If you know the dirty side of the business you may change your mind about their narrative.

What is the dirty side? Using poor Africans to mine their cobalt for electronic parts. We are taught about equality, diversity, and never to be racist. However, racism especially financial racism by the powers (elite), is common because their goal is money, and more of it through exploitation of resources and people. Let’s see a photo of an African cobalt mine. Does it look healthy to you? Does it look like these people are making a good living and being treated fairly so we can have electric cars, cell phones, and computers?

What is another dirty aspect of solar panels, electric cars, cell phones, computers, and electronics? Mining. Digging into the earth and leaving vast craters and canyons all over along with polluted water as a by-product. Let’s take a look at one such man-made canyon.

What does industrial waste do to water? Let’s take a look in photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do we need for that causes so much pollution? Computer chips! Do you want to end pollution? Give up your cell phone, video games, computers, solar energy panels, etc. Uh, oh! I see a lot of sad faces. Got to have those computer chips right?

How is our current energy system polluting the environment? Well, gas, oil, and coal, are used to generate electricity. Do they pollute? Yes they do. (See the photo diagram.) Is it the cause of global warming? Based on science maybe a tad, but there is something deeper that cannot be controlled, and really does not generate money like the global warming narrative. I am getting to that point, but first the photo diagram. We love the modern life and with it comes pollution.

So what is causing all the weird weather, heating of the Earth, and drastic changes that nobody is teaching or talking about in the scientific community? Is it something scary? Well, it can be. It is the shift of the Earth’s poles. (see diagram below) The poles have been shifting for several years now and it is altering everything across the globe and there is absolutely nothing that can be done about it. If we have a pole shift to the opposite direction which is long overdue there will be pure and total chaos of epic proportions. Imagine your country on the other side of the equator. Are you sitting there saying this sounds hopeless? Well, it could be. That basically means Earth is heading for a crash course of destruction. Pollution is making water, air, and food polluted and the poles are shifting.

So if we are making Earth toxic and the poles are shifting what can we do? Not much right? Well, let’s address how to stop all pollution. Are you ready? Nobody will do it. Here is the answer in one photo. We have to go back in time to use our bodies and not machines. We have to stop all chemicals. We have to live off the land. These people are virtually pollution free and pollute very little if at all. Indigenous people!

Did you see that coming? I bet you did not. Well, you probably will not see this coming either. I know inside all that I have presented has you stirred up a bit. Often I hear, “If the Earth is doomed with all sources of energy contributing to pollution whether oil, gas, coal, solar, etc., and the poles will tilt just what can we do to save ourselves?” Well, you are not saving your physical body and self. So let’s enter the spiritual realm.

Long ago, God came to Earth in the form of a man. It was foretold that a time will come that all the Earth burns and is destroyed, but we do not really know when, but there will be signs. What are the signs? Weird weather, mean men/murder increasing, confusion about gender, cameras/surveillance/being watched, being controlled by artificial intelligence, food shortages, hatred of God and Christian people, etc. For whatever reason powerful men and women that are not Christian fear Jesus. They never fear Buddha, The Hindu Gods, Allah/Mohammed, etc. There are major religions, but the one most feared is Christianity, Jesus, and his followers. Why? The Bible teaches one to think and live life. To be dangerous and free! Jesus was so dangerous they said, “Crucify him!”

You are sitting there thinking? What does this have to do with Global Warming? If God is in control and his word is true. It has everything to do with it. Now my atheist friends or non-believing friends think this line of thought is nuts. Pure crazy! I am o.k. with that because if my belief in God is nuts and pure crazy, and it does not matter, then what will happen if I physically die. Nothing really. I’ll just die like my atheist/non-believing friends and go into a hole. But what if it is all true and real? Then what happens to all the atheists and non-believers? They die a second death spiritually and end up in hell. Ugh! So basically, there is no harm in being a Christian and follower of God, but the risk is great if it is true and you do not believe in Christ. I like insurance! Car insurance, life insurance, health insurance, and the most important of all spiritual insurance with Jesus. He has my back and takes that worry away. No worry about Global Warming, Poles shifting, etc.  I have knowledge (The Bible) to be aware and the peace knowing Jesus has my back.

JesusVersusSatan

People are anti-Christ if they reject the word of the Lord and refuse him in their lives. People are also Anti-Christ if they tell you need to be a certain religion to partake in communion, or to ask Christ into your life. They are against Christ, supporting Satan, and like the snake in the Garden of Eden they spread lies and deceit, often with no biblical knowledge, or their own take on it. Anti-Christ’s tear apart spiritually, rather than uplift. They reject God’s words as imaginary, made up, or not the only way to God, and the way they live life shows it. They hear the voice of the Holy Spirit calling them, but they reject it, because they think their opinions are greater than God. Anti-Christ’s think they are their own God, but their consciousness is tormented, and the bed they sleep on is like hot coals. They cannot find peace, joy, or rest. Their anger is always ready to launch out at Christians. Watch a person’s actions, not their words. Anti-Christ’s are extremely cunning and crafty with the tongue, but they always reveal whether they serve God or are Anti-Christ through actions. If you are a discerning Christian with spiritual vision, God will let you see clearly. If you reject God, you can see nothing. God will blind you to truth. Scripture verses that back this notion can be found in Matthew 12:30, James 4:4, 2 Corinthians 4:4.

Mt.Soledad

When I was a young man and my teacher’s guided me from sadness, due to a variety of issues in my life, often, I was told to have faith in Jesus. My teachers were loving and caring people who would give their life to see that mine were better. They would stay on the job 40 years before retiring, and not lose a lick of presentation, or teaching skills. Today, we have teachers that will only stay on the job for three years, because they care not about their students, but for free college tuition guarantees for teaching a few years. Of course the system loves them, because as long as they turn them over within three years, the payroll never goes up.

When I was a young man, I remember the majority of people going to the many churches in my neighborhood. People praised God, had dinners together, fellow-shipped, and thoroughly enjoyed life. Fast forward thirty years later, and most of the churches in my neighborhood have closed their doors do to lack of attendance, people stick to themselves for the most part, and there is much more unhappiness. The funny thing is the material wealth in my neighborhood has exploded due to favorable market conditions. One would think that with all the wealth, material gains, and conveniences happiness would excel.

When I was a young man, I never heard much about gay relationships, sex change operations, human-trafficking, drugs, hard-core pornography, teacher-student sex, booty calls, kids killing kids, mass school shootings, kids killing their parents, parents killing their kids, people eating people, people killing people for the fun of it, daily murders, rapes, robberies, gluttony, prescription drug abuse, baby daddy’s, baby momma’s, massage parlors, teachers and police using and selling drugs, corporate theft, etc.,etc. I could go on and on about how society is degrading into sinfulness over praising the Lord, and loving each other.

The evil people are using a twist of God’s verse of love to validate the right to be sinful on a daily basis. When people act willingly to disobey God’s law without trying to avoid the pitfalls of sin, God tells us they are not Christian. He tells us that we will know them by what they do. If people are doing wrong and stating,”Hey, you can’t judge me, only God can judge me.”, while maintaining sinful ways, we are to show them our love, but God again tells us to know them.

Today’s time is a time I thought I would never see. I never thought I would see a society turn against Jesus or God. God is true freedom, and not bondage as many misinformed people state with their hate-filled hearts. I never thought I would see Christmas become a bad word, biblical references, and nativities removed, soldiers and teachers threatened for praying, and monuments like Mt. Soledad’s ordered torn down. American was founded on God. Here is reference for those who do not believe it. http://www.wallbuilders.com/LIBissuesArticles.asp?id=63

Only God knows what he has planned, but many signs of the season point to an ominous future of hate. This hate will come from the very ones professing tolerance. An Atheist society void of God has already been done in history and it was HELL. You can read about it in this book. http://torturedforchrist.com/ Read about what an Atheist society void of God brings to people. You will find that it is not freedom, but bondage and torture.

 

Many Americans lives are now 24/7. Technology has come along with the promise to make things easier, but it has actually become a two-edged sword. So in this new, modern, three-ring circus who is controlling who?

Stress and anxiety seem to be a modern standard for most people. Does it have to be this way?

God designed us with a sense of rhythm.

Let’s take a look at what it says in the Bible.

Jesus was a busy man. He knew that he had to separate himself from the world and re-charge. Matthew 14:23 states,”After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone.”

Jesus also states in Matthew 1 28-30,” Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

So right in the Bible we learn that we should take time for ourselves and rest, and places our worries upon Jesus.

So the next time your worries take you beyond your personal threshold, take time out for yourself, step away, and best of all ask Jesus to take control.

If you make this a habit, just like eating, I promise your life will be vastly different.

What is the chance of a man fulfilling eight verifiable prophecies over his lifetime? Ten to the seventeenth power. If one were to cover the State Of Texas with that many silver dollars, it would be two feet deep in silver dollars all across Texas. Now what if they said,”There is a cross somewhere on one of those coins. Your chances of being blindfolded, and finding that silver dollar is the same odds. So what does this all mean?

There are eight verifiable prophecies that cannot be refuted by science, nor man, regarding Jesus’s life. The chances of all these prophecies happening to one man are ten to the seventeenth power. Amazing stuff!

1. His place of birth

2. Time of his birth

3. Manner of birth

4. The Betrayal

5. Manner of Death

6. People’s reactions

7. His piercing

8. His burial

Jesus is our good news. He is the news we all need that can brighten our lives and hearts. He can turn all the suffering that man has created around. A Jew might argue that nobody has ever sat on the throne, because of a curse in the lineage of Abraham, but Jesus was made clean when he was born of a virgin mother Mary. Irrefutable evidence!

Now some might say that Christians are the cause of all the World’s problems. I challenge you to hang with a church, or group of active Christians for six months. and see if you come to that conclusion on your own. I’ll bet God calls you home to be his warrior for change.

If a man knew that apricots cured all cancer, how would you feel if he kept it a secret from mankind? I would say most, if not all, would hate him.

So as a Christian, no I am not perfect by any means, I state that Jesus cures, heals, and forgives everyone who turns to him. He turns the light on in your life even during the darkest of struggles.

If we can share that message with everyone, the World will be a better place.

A lot of times I am asked about my life and how I accomplish things. “Help! I hear.” Sometimes, I am the one asking for,”Help!”

So today, I decided to do a post about the things that benefit me, and I know can benefit others. These ten things can change your life.

Help! It’s right here.

1. Banks- Banks have a main goal that is to make money and earn interest off their assets. Their goal is really not the customer even though they must pretend that they love      you to death. Banks have high priority for those who are ultra-wealthy and low priority for most of society. They often see the lower-income earners as burdens even though they are glad to have what little money you own to help their bottom line, which is to make money. So with that said, don’t pay the banks! Pay yourself! How do you pay yourself? Invest in stocks, mutual funds, and bonds that pay you interest(money). Avoid credit cards and borrowing! If you don’t have the money, then don’t buy it! Do not give the banks extra money, so that you can have a depreciating (losing money) asset. Think assets (what pads or lines your pocket), not liabilities (things that take away from your money).

2. Insurers- Insurers protect you from liability(responsibility to pay for loss) and protect the things your own(assets). Many times, we do not have the necessary cash flow to pay for huge losses. With that said, buy insurance on everything of value, that you cannot replace with the cash you have on hand. I believe in insuring everything possible.Insurance can be expensive, but the price is small when you have a disaster.

3. Retail purchases and autos- Purchasing anything new is like throwing money away in the trash. Why? Almost anything new loses extreme cash value. Purchase clothes, shoes, goods, and autos used so that someone else can lose the cash value and take the big depreciation hit for you. In return, you are benefiting your assets and helping the environment by recycling. The money saved can be invested so that you are paying yourself.

4. Groceries- Purchase fruits and vegetables that are in season so that you get the best value. Buy dry goods and other items in bulk if you have storage capacity to save money. Buy organic foods when possible to avoid chemically laden food products. Natural foods will save your retirement money for you and not prescription drugs to maintain your health. Avoid most cleaning products because they often do not work as stated and they are hazardous. One can clean and disinfect almost everything with bleach, lemon juice, vinegar, and soap.

5. Entertainment-  Always look for early season bargains on passes to museums, zoos, water parks, amusement parks, etc. The passes allow you to go to a place as much as you want without paying for a ticket every visit. The passes usually pay for themselves within one or two visits. For movies, hit the matinees and save up to 25% per ticket. If you want to take it further, pack your own food. This is always healthier and a huge savings.

6. Health- Avoid all drugs (prescription and illegal) as much as possible. The body hates drugs especially your stomach, liver, and kidneys. Avoid alcohol as much as possible and limit to no more than one drink a day maximum. Eat as many plant-based foods as you want, love and use fresh garlic, and limit consumption of animal products. Diets high in vegetables, grains, and fruits help you to have the power to enjoy life in your senior years and save your retirement money for trips and not prescription pills. At my age, I am watching friends far apart and break down, because they never took the lifestyle choice of being healthy serious. Protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen and clothing for that beautiful youthful look. Drink plenty of water and limit sugary drinks. I would say to avoid all man-made food additives as much as possible especially monosodium glutamate (makes you gain weight)  and high fructose corn syrup (diabetes link).

7. Donate- Donate what you do not need to charity organizations or others. Donate time to help make a difference in the environment or someones life. Donating time, money, and goods are great for the soul and health of the body. Another added benefit is the government recognizes the importance of donating and often many things can be used as a tax write off.

8. Religion- Prescribe to a faith and stick to its teachings as much as possible. I say as much as possible, because it is unreal to expect perfection. Of course, I am bias to Jesus Christ and Christianity, because Jesus washes me clean even though I am a sinner. Many religions base salvation on good works, but you can never have enough good works. It is impossible! We can never be perfect and Jesus knows this. A benefit of religion is added years to your life which is backed by research. It also gives one and improved state of mind and greater outlook on life.

9. Human relations- Listen and watch a person to know their heart and state of mind. Know who they hang around. Unfortunately, not everyone is nice or good. If something is great and another tells you it is bad, then you must realize that person is bad. If committing a certain act is bad and another tries to convince you it is o.k. that person is bad. Great people work to bring you up, help you, and show you good things. Bad people are the opposite because they tear you down, do not help you or your life, and they will show you in the worst way how not to be successful. A rattlesnake has a pattern and rattle for a reason. To warn you of it’s danger! Humans also have patterns and characteristics.

10. Education- I cannot state it enough! Read, study, and learn all that you can about as many topics as you can. Be a renaissance man/woman!

Today my pastor, Dr. Ed Young, did a sermon on parental guidance. He really hit the nail on the head when he said,”America is in trouble.” He started out by discussing two families that he has known over 30 years that were neighbors, same economic background, same houses, churches, parties, and social circles. He stated that sociologists would agree that almost everything about them was pretty similar. The problem is one family had complete disaster(disobedience, crime, decadence) in the household and the other complete happiness (story book family and progression). The question is,”How can that happen?”

It happens when there is a lack of family values and modeling in the home.

So one might ask,”What is a value?” A value is a life principle. Of course people will try to defeat you when you state biblical knowledge, but you can counter them by asking, “Where do you get your values? What is the source?”

Today we look on the news and see heinous and horrendous crimes one after the other against woman, children, men, and just about all over the world. In America, 48% of our teachers leave teaching. That’s almost half. We have around 135,000 kids taking guns or some sort of weapon daily to school. Over 24% of kids are scared to go to the restroom for fear of being bullied or accosted at school. We have lost our moral compass. We are not teaching boys to men or girls to be women. What we have is a failure of parenting! We treat the disease and not the problem.

Let’s take a tour of values and how we got to where we are today.

From the 1st century until the 18th century man based his life and law on transcendent values and natural law. Men looked up to the heavens for guidance. Starting in the Enlightenment period, men heard the ideas of Kant and Jean- Jacques Rousseau. Rousseau taught to look within your heart for guidance. Kant taught to look inside your mind for guidance. Forget God and look to yourself. This idea is prominent in education today. We allow children to follow their passions, emotions, hearts, and minds without guidance. Now Rousseau did have children, but all four were born by a slave and he disowned all of them. Some parent he was yes? So why do we look towards his philosophical thinking and teach it today? Why are his philosophies more prominent than those of Jesus?

Then we have Friedrich Nietzsche who came along later to teach perfectionism, self-will, and calling your own shots. You don’t need anyone to tell you what to do. You can rule your own life. You dominate the weak and control. Freidrich Nietzsche states,” The strong have the right to rule anyway they see fit.”

It’s no surprise that Adolf Hitler adopted this thinking. The sad part is this philosophy is alive and well in education today.

“What’s in the classroom today, will be in the home tomorrow.” ~ Dr. Ed Young

So you see the darkness that prevails today, that most people want to close their minds to and ignore, began during the Enlightenment period. Parents have not absorbed this fact. The scale is tipping to negative and dark territory as time passes.

During the 60’s and 70’s, the heat was turned up, and we had the Haight-Ashbury’s Love-In. Free love, free sex, free food, drugs, and the turning away from values. These people are ruling today. Do you see the direction and why we are where we are at now? John Lennon was bigger than the world at the time and everyone loved his music. Lennon was embraced with great fervor. Is John Lennon really that great and an authority on parenting? Let’s take a look at what Julian Lennon said about his father.

“I know that Dad was an idol to millions who grew up loving his music and his ideals. But to me he wasn’t a musician or a peace icon, he was the father I loved and who let me down in so many ways. After the age of five, when my parents separated, I saw him only a handful of times, and when I did he was often remote and intimidating. I grew up longing for more contact with him but felt rejected and unimportant in his life.
… … While Dad was fast becoming one of the wealthiest men in his field, Mum and I had very little and she was going out to work to support us. Dad was about peace and love, but could not show it to the ones who were supposedly most important to him. ~Julian Lennon

Without question, the greatest victim of Lennon’s character failings was his oldest son, Julian. John Lennon clearly resented the young boy whose conception had forced him into a marriage he didn’t want and trapped him in a domestic routine he was too immature and narcissistic to sustain. Simply, John Lennon made up his own life – exaggerating, embellishing, and outright lying when it suited him to do so.  People tend to see Lennon as some sort of divine guru of peace and love because of his political activities in the early 1970s. The reality is John Lennon was politically clueless and only took photos with a bunch of radical groups.
John offered no parental guidance. So why do we look at him as some great hero when he is a failure in regards to parental guidance?

In a UCLA teen survey that was ten years apart, the first in 1997 and the second in 2007 we see the stark change in teen values over a ten-year period. The teens were asked what their top values were.

In 1997: community, tradition, acceptance, image, and benevolence.

In 2007: fame, achievement, image, success, and popularity.

So we can see there is less caring about others and more about the “ME.”

Do you see the progression and how we are failing as a society? It all starts at home. Fathers and mothers are failing because they give no parental guidance. Fathers are especially weak because they are not leading their houses. The woman is not the leader. The man is the leader. Men step up!

The funny part about Kant, Rousseau, and Nietzsche and the whole enlightenment is that God talked about their ideals in Jeremiah. There ideas were nothing new and God spoke of the problems those ideas bring in the following verses:

Jeremiah 17:9-14

New International Version (NIV)

 

The heart is deceitful above all things
    and beyond cure.
    Who can understand it?

 

1“I the Lord search the heart
    and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
    according to what their deeds deserve.”

 

11 Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay
    are those who gain riches by unjust means.
When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them,
    and in the end they will prove to be fools.

 

12 A glorious throne, exalted from the beginning,
    is the place of our sanctuary.
13 Lord, you are the hope of Israel;
    all who forsake you will be put to shame.
Those who turn away from you will be written in the dust
    because they have forsaken the Lord,
    the spring of living water.

14 Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed;
    save me and I will be saved,
    for you are the one I praise.

God searches the heart and the mind we just need to follow him and his teachings. We need to look up instead of looking to our own hearts and minds.

There are men and women who seek to be corporate icons and heroes making all the money that they can, but at the end of their lives they often state,”I wish I could go back and be a better parent and raise my children.” IT’S TO LATE!!!!

What AMERICA needs so desperately right now is men and woman who are FAMILY ORIENTED and not CORPORATE CLONES.

Matthew 16:25-27

New International Version (NIV)

25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.

The best parental guidance one can give is time to your child by listening, learning, working with them, and loving them. Do not let their friends or outsiders be their source of knowledge. Many important people today have the worst advice in the word because their minds are reprobate.

Don’t lose your children because you choose to live for the world. You will gain nothing!

 

There is no room in the kingdom of God for macho men trying to impress one another with their collections of “toys” or “possessions.” It doesn’t matter whether these toys are cars, biceps, girlfriends, church members, or certificates of deposit. There is no room for this power struggle.

Even our failures as Christian men are successes! They represent the miracle that you and I survived!

You can never become what you want until you can drop who you used to be.

God has commanded me to tell you that you are not who others say you are!….You are more than other people’s opinions. Why should others name you, determine who your are, and set the limits of your success?

Christian men you are a prince, and the devil knows it. That’s why he’s been trying to assassinate you.

True manhood doesn’t flow from the natural, it flows from God’s supernatural source.

Jesus Christ was both God and man, lion and lamb. The art is to have both and to know when to be which.

Many times relationships arrive at their demise because we fail to discern problems before they escalate to emergencies.

There is a difference between discussion and argument.  A discussion airs the issues, but an argument alleges charges and appoints blame.

People can never give you what they have not received.

If you want to climb from the mediocre to the supernatural, find someone who is doing what you want to do and do it with them.

God wants strong men who lead instead of weak men who only follow.

You can’t have genuine friendships if you hide your true self.

Once you understand God is committed to you, loneliness is impossible.

Many men struggle with commitment because we seldom see it in others.

If you want some good advice, don’t take the opinions of others to seriously.

Teach your children wisdom. Teach them how to make and handle money without worshipping it.

I am my wife’s resting post and my children’s compass. If I do not effect my family in a positive way, then my presence in my home is a disgrace to God!

Tell the enemy,”I am a man of prayer. I will be knocked no lower than my knees.”

Although God made a wonderful place for Adam to live, the man  remained less than complete. He needed a woman. Keep in mind, though, that she completed his purpose, not his person. If you’re not complete as a person, marriage will not help you.

When you decide to help somebody, you won’t have to carry them forever. Just get them to Jesus.

Faith for the believer is what gasoline is for the automobile.

It’s not enough for us to go to church together. We’re not really brothers until we can laugh and cry together.

We need heroes today.We need someone to believe in and look up to. We need role models and men shadows we may stand in, men who provide a cool, refreshing place of safety away from the despair of our oppressive society.

Thoughts are previews of coming attractions.

In a world where people seem void of commitment and become so easily distracted, it is comforting to know God will not give up on you.
