Unprecedented winds and fire in Los Angeles!

I’m going to be bold and say that I believe these winds are of a divine nature. We’re seeing prestige areas being destroyed and video interviews of people who have “lost everything” that’s dear to them — as we did during the devastating hurricanes earlier this year. No doubt these folks have insurance and can move on from this devastation, but if this is yet another “harbinger” then the Lord God is trying to get people whose hearts are far from Him to pay attention …

California wind hits unprecedented high — and so does fire danger

California wind hits unprecedented high — and so does fire danger

Southern California has felt yellow wind, orange wind and red wind. But never purple wind.

Until now.

The color-coded system showing the expected strength of the wild winds driving the region’s fierce wildfires has reached uncharted territory. It has pushed past red, which means “high,” into purple, which means “extreme.”

State fire Director Ken Pimlott said Wednesday that purple has never been used here before.

He says that means winds could blow at 80 mph, a speed reaching hurricane strength.

The three major wildfires burning in Los Angeles and Ventura counties have already put tens of thousands of people under evacuation orders and destroyed nearly 200 homes and buildings.

Officials issued a rare wind warning late Tuesday night to millions of cellphones from San Diego to Santa Barbara.

A PROPHECY CONNECTION? …

 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.  But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”  — Jesus (Matthew 6:19-24)

Praying for everyone involved in this monumental disaster for California, the nation, and the world, as we watch a good deal of Los Angeles be destroyed. But especially for all believers who are given opportunities to share their faith in Jesus Christ.

Jerusalem: Trump Considers Historic Move!

God spoke through the prophet Zechariah saying: I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem.”  That’s how the New International Version translates the verse.

The King James Version words it like this: Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.” (Zechariah 12:2)

Trump Expected to Delay Embassy Move, but Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital

Amir Tibon (Washington, D.C.) Dec 01, 2017 8:05 PM

WASHINGTON – U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to sign a presidential waiver delaying the move of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, breaking his campaign promise on the matter for the second time since entering the White House.

But a senior administration official said Friday that Trump is likely to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in a speech on Wednesday. The White House has remained officially mum on the subject.

Trump’s decision, which would be in line with long-standing American policy, breaks an election promise he made to move the embassy to Jerusalem, the second president to break such a promise after George W. Bush.

The waiver has been signed by every U.S. president since 1995, and is valid for six months at a time. Former U.S. President Barack Obama signed it during the last weeks of his term. Trump signed it himself for the first time last June, prompting praise from the Palestinians and disappointment from Israel.

The LA Times reported on Thursday that Trump is likely to sign the waiver again, but that at a recent discussion on the subject, he expressed anger about having to do so, and stated that postponing the move indefinitely is “unacceptable.” The report also said that Trump asked his aides to prepare a plan of how to eventually move the embassy, even if such a move would be carried out immediately.

Only this week, Vice President Mike Pence said that Trump is actively considering how to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. “As we speak, President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” Pence said at an event marking the 70th anniversary of a United Nations vote that called for the establishment of Israel.

A dominant figure who in the past pushed for the embassy move is U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman. During the election campaign, it was Friedman who, in interviews with both the American and the Israeli media, repeatedly stressed Trump’s promise to move the embassy. Last December, when Trump appointed him as ambassador, he said he would work to strengthen ties between America and Israel, “and look forward to doing this from the U.S. embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem.”

Here is the entire Zechariah prophecy  for your consideration …

 A prophecy: The word of the Lord concerning Israel.

The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares the Lord. “I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the Lord Almighty is their God.’

“On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.

“The Lord will save the dwellings of Judah first, so that the honor of the house of David and of Jerusalem’s inhabitants may not be greater than that of Judah. On that day the Lord will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the Lord going before them. On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.

ISIS burns pilot alive! (2015)

BREAKING: ISIS targets Jordan, burns pilot alive & releases gruesome video. King Abdullah will meet with President tonight, then cut U.S. visit short to return to Jordan.

February 3, 2015 at 10:08 pm

Once again the Islamic State has shown just how evil and barbaric it truly is, and this time it is the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan that is in the crosshairs.

ISIS jihadists have burned alive the Jordanian fighter pilot it was holding captive. Today they released a 22 minute video of this savage act for the world to see.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II — denounced as “an ally of the crusaders” by ISIS terrorists in the video — was in Washington on Tuesday for several days of meetings with White House and Congressional leaders. He is now cutting his visit short to return to Amman to manage the crisis. But before he leaves, at 6pm eastern, the King will meet with President Obama to discuss the crisis and how he plans to respond.

“Those who doubted the atrocities committed by ISIS now have the proof,”Jordanian government spokesman Mohammad al-Momani said on state TV, according to CNN. “Those who doubted Jordan’s power will soon see the proof as well. (Al-Kasaesbeh’s) blood will not be shed in vain.”

King Abdullah condemned the murder of the pilot, who he said was “killed in defense of his religion, his country and his (Islamic) nation.” The King then said, “It is the duty of the sons and daughters of Jordan to stand together and show the mettle of the Jordanian people in unity, determination and resolve.”

  • Please pray for the Lord to comfort the family and friends of this pilot.
  • Please pray for the King and his advisors to have wisdom how best to respond.
  • Please pray for this doesn’t cause the Jordanian people to abandon the fight against ISIS — Jordan is one of our most important Arab allies and we need the King and his people to be actively engaged in this monumental fight.
  • Please also pray that President Obama, his administration, and Congress will give their full support to the people and government of Jordan at this critical hour. Jordan needs to know just how must America values them and that we will stand faithfully with them against ISIS.

More prophetic weather as the world disrespects Israel? (2015)

Since some of the world’s top leader’s — primarily President Obama and Sec. of State John Kerry — have been disrespecting Israel’s Prime Minister and favoring Iran to procure a nuclear “deal,” here’s what’s been happening in and around our nation’s capital.

Given the Presidential snub of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the past few days, it’s not surprising that the Northeastern U.S. is now anticipating yet another historic snow storm …

Winter weather set to pound NYC as flights are canceled and officials warn of transit shutdowns ahead of historic snow storm

More than 1,400 flights were already canceled in the greater New York City area Monday morning. Gov. Cuomo told commuters Sunday they should consider staying home in preparation for the storm that’s set to dump up to 3 feet of snow on the city.
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Netanyahu basks in Congress invitation, but may shake U.S. ties

JERUSALEM Fri Jan 23, 2015

(Reuters) – Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to accept an invitation to address the U.S. Congress just days before Israel’s parliamentary election offers him invaluable pre-vote publicity, but may also have shaken the balance of U.S.-Israel ties.

John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the House of Representatives, issued the invitation without consulting the White House, a breach of protocol since it is normally up to a head of state to invite a foreign leader.

It also does not appear that Netanyahu, a right-winger who has a testy relationship with Barack Obama, let the president know about the invitation before accepting it, underscoring their increasingly tense ties.

The upshot is that Netanyahu will address a joint session of Congress on March 3 – the third time he has had the honor – but will not meet Obama.

Another Powerful Storm Threatens New England

By Terry Eliasen, Meteorologist, WBZ-TV Exec. Weather Producer

BOSTON (CBS) — I have officially run out of ways to discuss and describe this winter. By now you have likely been hit with a thousand different numbers and graphs.

Top 10 snowiest winter. Two top 10 storms in the last three weeks. Snowiest February on record. . . yadda yadda yadda. . . the beat goes on and on.

The history books are literally being rewritten over the last 3 weeks. I find it incredible to think that just 20 days ago we had just 5” of snow for the season and now we are completely and utterly buried. We are dumping snow in “snow farms” and in the Atlantic Ocean. Day and night dump trucks are hauling snow out of the city and yet we just cannot keep up.

More than once I have woken up and wondered if the last few weeks had really happened. I mean really? More snow in 17 days than in any 20, 30 or 40 day stretch in history? More snow in 17 days than we get in a full season and a half?

What is more believable, that or the Patriots winning their fourth Super Bowl thanks to a rookie most of us have never heard of making a miraculous interception with seconds to go from the 1 yard line? You could have told me this whole story three weeks ago and I would have said you are nuts.

Well, 6 feet of snow later and one Patriots parade through the streets of what looked like Alaska and what do you know. . . miracles do happen. Records are made to be broken. Or should I say shattered, annihilated, destroyed…

NYC braces for coldest day in two decades

The Big Apple will be more like the Big Icebox this weekend.

An arctic cold front packing dangerous winds of up to 60 mph could make it feel like it’s 20 below zero by Sunday — the coldest wind-chill factor since 1993’s “Storm of the Century,” forecasters warned.

“You better snuggle up,” AccuWeather meteorologist Tom Kines said, noting the arctic blast will blow through after another snowstorm slams the already hard-hit Northeast this weekend.

The blizzard to the north will skirt the city Saturday into early Sunday but could leave up to 3 inches of snow on the ground in the metro area.

Saturday’s high will be about 35 with a low of 17, but by Sunday morning conditions will be downright dangerous.

The thermometer will plummet to 6 degrees or lower.

“When the winds pick up Saturday night, that’s the signal” the front is crashing through, Kines said.

The wind will build as the thermometer drops, which means brave souls venturing outdoors Sunday morning should dress for the North Pole — with plenty of layers and no skin exposed.

“Sometimes we forget about our ears and our nose,” Kines said, urging people to bundle up outside.

But some New Yorkers said they would ride out the frigid temperatures indoors, and ward off the chill with some hot food or a bottle of booze….

The wind will continue into Monday, making temperatures again feel as low as minus-20 and blowing with enough force to bring down tree branches and power lines, AccuWeather warned.

Forecasters said the wind chills could be colder than in March 1993, when the so-called Storm of the Century, or ’93 Superstorm, swept across the East Coast from Alabama to Canada, killing more than 300 people before it headed out to sea.

Heat, Flood or Icy Cold, Extreme Weather Rages Worldwide

Snow blanketed Jerusalem on Thursday, an example of weather extremes that are growing more frequent and intense. More Photos »

WORCESTER, England — Britons may remember 2012 as the year the weather spun off its rails in a chaotic concoction of drought, deluge and flooding, but the unpredictability of it all turns out to have been all too predictable: Around the world, extreme has become the new commonplace.

Especially lately. China is enduring its coldest winter in nearly 30 years. Brazil is in the grip of a dreadful heat spell. Eastern Russia is so freezing — minus 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and counting — that the traffic lights recently stopped working in the city of Yakutsk.

Bush fires are raging across Australia, fueled by a record-shattering heat wave. Pakistan was inundated by unexpected flooding in September. A vicious storm bringing rain, snow and floods just struck the Middle East. And in the United States, scientists confirmed this week what people could have figured out simply by going outside: last year was the hottest since records began.

“Each year we have extreme weather, but it’s unusual to have so many extreme events around the world at once,” said Omar Baddour, chief of the data management applications division at the World Meteorological Organization, in Geneva. “The heat wave in Australia; the flooding in the U.K., and most recently the flooding and extensive snowstorm in the Middle East — it’s already a big year in terms of extreme weather calamity.”

Such events are increasing in intensity as well as frequency, Mr. Baddour said, a sign that climate change is not just about rising temperatures, but also about intense, unpleasant, anomalous weather of all kinds.

Here in Britain, people are used to thinking of rain as the wallpaper on life’s computer screen — an omnipresent, almost comforting background presence. But even the hardiest citizen was rattled by the near-biblical fierceness of the rains that bucketed down, and the floods that followed, three different times in 2012.

Rescuers plucked people by boat from their swamped homes in St. Asaph, North Wales. Whole areas of the country were cut off when roads and train tracks were inundated at Christmas. In Mevagissey, Cornwall, a pub owner closed his business for good after it flooded 11 times in two months.

It was no anomaly: the floods of 2012 followed the floods of 2007 and also the floods of 2009, which all told have resulted in nearly $6.5 billion in insurance payouts. The Met Office, Britain’s weather service, declared 2012 the wettest year in England, and the second-wettest in Britain as a whole, since records began more than 100 years ago. Four of the five wettest years in the last century have come in the past decade (the fifth was in 1954)….

Forest Fires In Northwest Canada Burning At ‘Unprecedented’ Levels

This article originally appeared on Climate Central.

For the past few weeks, dry and warm weather have fueled large forest fires across Canada’s remote Northwest Territories. The extent of those fires is well above average for the year to-date, and is in line with climate trends of more fires burning in the northern reaches of the globe.

Of the 186 wildfires in the Northwest Territories to-date this year, 156 of them are currently burning. That includes the Birch Creek Fire complex, which stretches over 250,000 acres.

The amount of acres burned in the Northwest Territories is six times greater than the 25-year average to-date according to data from the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Center.

Boreal forests like those in the Northwest Territories are burning at rates “unprecedented” in the past 10,000 years according to the authors of a study put out last year. The northern reaches of the globe are warming at twice the rate as areas closer to the equator, and those hotter conditions are contributing to more widespread burns.

The combined boreal forests of Canada, Europe, Russia and Alaska, account for 30 percent of the world’s carbon stored in land, carbon that’s taken up to centuries to store. Forest fires like those currently raging in the Northwest Territories, as well as ones in 2012 and 2013 in Russia, can release that stored carbon into the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. Warmer temperatures can in turn create a feedback loop, priming forests for wildfires that release more carbon into the atmosphere and cause more warming. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s landmark climate report released earlier this year indicates that for every 1.8°F rise in temperatures, wildfire activity is expected to double.

In addition, soot from forest fires can also darken ice in the Arctic and melt it faster. The 2012 fires in Siberia released so much soot that they helped create a shocking melt of Greenland’s ice sheet. Over the course of a few weeks in July that year, 95 percent of the surface melted. That could become a yearly occurrence by 2100 if temperatures continue to rise along with wildfire activity.

Forest in other parts of the globe are also feeling the effects of climate change. In the western U.S., wildfire season has lengthened by 75 days compared to 40 years ago. Additionally, rising temperatures and shrinking snowpack have helped drive an increase in the number of large forest fires. In Australia, fire danger is also increasing, if not the total number of fires, due to a similar trend of hotter, dryer weather.

Have you ever given serious thought to what you would do if you lost everything you owned due to circumstances that were beyond your ability to control the outcome? Jesus said:

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

(Matthew 6:19-21, NIV)
