Stay Free part 39 - Evangelism

Excellent explanation in here of the dangers of the "seeker-friendly" church, and why the church should not, cannot look like the world.  We are not the world, and "friendship with the world is enmity (hostility, opposition) to God."  (James 4:4) 

Predictions of Major Earth Changes Beginning February 24th - Something Wicked This Way Comes

This guy is clearly an information addict, which is nice for us, because he did all of the research and we can just listen to the results.  One of the main results here shows major solar eruptions occurring on the last three years beginning February 24th.  Also major Earth-affecting solar flares occurring on March 9-11 the last two years.  This is then followed by auroral lights and major earthquakes in the following six weeks.  I have to say I'm feeling pretty confident in his forecast based on info gathered the last four years.  If you lack the patience or time to listen to his entire video, check out the info and link below.

I'm making a major assumption that the researcher does not.  The only body in our Solar System on a 365 day cycle is the Earth.  So, something is causing the Sun/Earth major interactions on the same dates each year.  The data supports this.  I can think of only two causes.  One, God is just making it happen.  Two, a major solar body, dark, cold and with powerful gravity has approached the Sun and Earth on the solar plane and is causing the effects annually on the same days as we approach it's closest point.  And God would be the cause of that anyway.  I'm not predicting Nibiru, but there is an object called Wormwood (Rev. 8:8 - 11) that is probably close to the Earth as I write this...

Forecast February-May 2013 for Earth Booms, 8+ quakes, Sun Agenda, Magnetic field.. all based on previous statistical history & predictions.

What you're about to read is a historical data and statistical based forecast.. along with accurate predictions I've previously made using the very data.

The information shows during a time frame of the past three years large earthquakes the SAME magnetic field anomalies, SAME solar/spaceweather reports and SAME Auroras occurred year after year.. all matching to the same day!

As for example on March 11, 2011 (Japan 9.0) and March 11th, 2012 Earth's magnetic field was sideways/backwards and spaceweather reports were nearly the same both years in a row.

The same kind of activity went for EVERY MEGA Earthquake three years in a row....

Also including: Earth's magnetic field doing the same thing to the day, along with the same "solar activity" and Auroras to the day. Sounds crazy but it's all going to be proven here.

I'm taking this thread very seriously so I will also be posting screen shots of previous predictions I've made that have come true in using this data and awareness of what's going on that isn't random.

Such as predicting on exact dates when geomagnetic storms would occur, including pressure on Earth's magnetosphere and increased specific auroras.

I also predicted days before hand exactly when NASA/NOAA would say there would be a "Solar eruption" to cover the actual different source that's sending charged particles directed towards the Earth which again is NOT the Sun.

My work is not based upon Calendars, galactic alignments, special zodiac dates, Timewave, fancy numbers, religion predictions or other "he said/she said" stuff.

I compile data and statistical information of things actually going on with the Earth.

Then I see if any of the data is NOT random, when it's not random then I use the patterns of specific changes to make a forecast.

In that people actually see for themselves I'm not making stuff up, they see exactly what I see, how I compiled and made a forecast.

I'm going to document everything here, all the data and predictions before making the forecast so you can see for yourself how very real all this is.. including the whole "Solar agenda" BS that is indeed going on.

This thread will prove something far larger is happening to our Earth/Solar System that we're not being told and we're shortly about to see the evidence on Earth once again in the coming months.

Starting off with the basics to help better understand the data I looked around these dates to find anything abnormal going going:

2/27/2010 - 8.8 Chile
3/11/2011 - 9.0 Japan
4/11/2012 - 8.6 & 8.2 Indonesia.

Starting in early 2012 Earth Booms globally were reported by the Media but didn't last the whole year through.

In 2012 Earth Booms were first documented and recorded by the Media in January:

Wild Solar Events - What's Going On?

Okay, we have "supernova" force shockwaves coming from Saturn which NASA says is due to "solar wind", (article and link below) implying a major reaction to forces from the Sun.  However, the data they are releasing shows that we are approaching a "solar minimum", (see ice age vid below) implying a surprising lack of solar action.  Meanwhile, the mainstream media is hyping sunspots that are rotating away from the Earth, meaning anything they might produce won't be coming our way.  Why the information misdirection?

The above post is info picked up from Youtube user TheUnitedKnowledge, who found that something seemed to indicate major solar interaction between the Earth and Sun beginning on Feb. 24, for the last two years.  Think about that.  Something major happened on the same day for the last two years.  The Sun is not on a 365 day cycle.  Only the Earth is.  This would point strongly (in my opinion) to a large object near (or in) our Solar System influencing our annual orbit.  We may know for sure on or soon after Feb. 24th if this is true. 

Whatever is happening, we can be sure NASA and the major media outlets won't be telling us the truth.  Their major miscalculations, perhaps intentional, on the Russian meteor strike have proven the uselessness of their press releases. 

Saturn's Shockwaves Reach Supernova Force


During a chance encounter with what appears to be an unusually strong blast of solar wind at Saturn, NASA's Cassini spacecraft detected particles being accelerated to ultra-high energies. This is similar to the acceleration that takes place around distant supernovas. "Cassini has essentially given us the capability of studying the nature of a supernova shock in situ in our own solar system, bridging the gap to distant high-energy astrophysical phenomena that are usually only studied remotely," said Adam Masters of the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science, Sagamihara, Japan.

Scientists are particularly interested in "quasi-parallel" shocks, where the magnetic field and the "forward"-facing direction of the shock are almost aligned, as may be found in supernova remnants. The new study, led by Masters describes the first detection of significant acceleration of electrons in a quasi-parallel shock at Saturn, coinciding with what may be the strongest shock ever encountered at the ringed planet.

Papal resignation linked to inquiry into 'Vatican gay officials', says paper

This story just keeps getting stranger, and darker.  What's apparent is that Pope Benedict was backed into a corner and essentially forced to resigne, the first time a pope has done so in 6 centuries.  Who has done this and why is becoming more nebulous by each passing day.
Pope's staff decline to confirm or deny La Repubblica claims linking 'Vatileaks' affair and discovery of 'blackmailed gay clergy'

A potentially explosive report has linked the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI to the discovery of a network of gay prelates in the Vatican, some of whom – the report said – were being blackmailed by outsiders.

The pope's spokesman declined to confirm or deny the report, which was carried by the Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica.

The paper said the pope had taken the decision on 17 December that he was going to resign – the day he received a dossier compiled by three cardinals delegated to look into the so-called "Vatileaks" affair.

Last May Pope Benedict's butler, Paolo Gabriele, was arrested and charged with having stolen and leaked papal correspondence that depicted the Vatican as a seething hotbed of intrigue and infighting.
According to La Repubblica, the dossier comprising "two volumes of almost 300 pages – bound in red" had been consigned to a safe in the papal apartments and would be delivered to the pope's successor upon his election.

The newspaper said the cardinals described a number of factions, including one whose members were "united by sexual orientation".

In an apparent quotation from the report, La Repubblica said some Vatican officials had been subject to "external influence" from laymen with whom they had links of a "worldly nature". The paper said this was a clear reference to blackmail.

It quoted a source "very close to those who wrote [the cardinal's report]" as saying: "Everything revolves around the non-observance of the sixth and seventh commandments."

The seventh enjoins against theft. The sixth forbids adultery, but is linked in Catholic doctrine to the proscribing of homosexual acts.

La Repubblica said the cardinals' report identified a series of meeting places in and around Rome. They included a villa outside the Italian capital, a sauna in a Rome suburb, a beauty parlour in the centre, and a former university residence that was in use by a provincial Italian archbishop.

Jerusalem 3rd temple will be built 2012-2014. Abomination of Desolation

Were Space Based Weapons to Blame for the Russian Meteor Strike? There May Be Video Proof

The telescope video and interestingly timed cut by NASA are intriguing to say the least.  I've put the last two videos by DarkSkyWatcher below  That space-based weapons exist should not be a point of debate.  Hitler knew that Nazi advances in rocket technology would allow such weapons in the early 1940's.  The U.S. had plans for a military base on the moon by 1965.  The only question is the capability of such weapons and who controls them. 


Rome's Arrogance Knows No End - Cardinal who covered up pedophilia says he forgives those who are mad at him

I should like to write more in the future on my personal belief that this was the Cardinal (or at least part of the composite) mentioned as being part of a Satanic cult and possessed in one of Malachi Martin's novels.  He seems to possess no shortage of arrogance.

Lou Colagiovanni
The Examiner

Cardinal Mahony
© latimes.com
The disgraced Cardinal Mahony
Documents from the 1980s have been unearthed which conclusively show Archbishop Roger M. Mahony purposefully and intentionally worked to cover-up the sexual abuses of children. Due to this vile revelation the public has scorned Mahony, to which he says he forgives them for their anger. How generous of him.

Taking to his personal blog to discuss the allegations, and how unprepared he was for the public backlash, Mahony writes:
I am being called to something deeper--to be humiliated, disgraced, and rebuffed by many.
It is Mahony's apparent belief that God wanted him to cover-up the sexual abuses of children so that he could be humiliated in public.

The disgraced cardinal went on to describe the public beratings that have become a regular part of his daily life:
In recent days, I have been confronted in various places by very unhappy people. I could understand the depth of their anger and outrage--at me, at the Church, at about injustices that swirl around us.

Thanks to God's special grace, I simply stood there, asking God to bless and forgive them.
Why is the public so upset? For example it was found by latimes.com that in July of 1986 Mahony strategized to keep confirmed pedophile, Peter Garcia, who prayed almost entirely on non-English speaking immigrant children, from being prosecuted. He wrote in his memo:
I believe that if Monsignor Garcia were to reappear here within the archdiocese we might very well have some type of legal action filed in both the criminal and civil sectors.
Mahony went on to write that Garcia should stay away from California, "for the foreseeable future."

Perhaps it is time for the despicable cardinal to begin praying for forgiveness for his atrocious behavior. Currently no legal charges are pending, and Mahony has not agreed to resign his position.

Temporary tattoos could make ‘electronic telepathy,’ ‘telekinesis’ possible

As the distance between advanced technologies and what most would consider the supernatural disappears, the time of the events of Psalm 2 draw closer.  The time when men believe they can literally overthrow God.  It's very close...

  Temporary electronic tattoos could soon help people fly drones with only thought and talk seemingly telepathically without speech over smartphones.
(Credit: mc10)
The devices are less than 100 microns thick, the average diameter of a human hair. They consist of circuitry embedded in a layer or rubbery polyester that allow them to stretch, bend and wrinkle. They are barely visible when placed on skin, making them easy to conceal from others.

The devices can detect electrical signals linked with brain waves, and incorporate solar cells for power and antennas that allow them to communicate wirelessly or receive energy. Other elements can be added as well, like thermal sensors to monitor skin temperature and light detectors to analyze blood oxygen levels.

Using the electronic tattoos, Coleman and his colleagues have found they can detect brain signals reflective of mental states, such as recognition of familiar images. One application they are now pursuing is monitoring premature babies to detect the onset of seizures that can lead to epilepsy or brain development problems. The devices are now being commercialized for use as consumer, digital health, medical device, and industrial and defense products by startup MC10 in Cambridge, Mass.

Stay Free part 37 - Can We Lose Our Salvation?

Some people in the Church struggle mightily with this topic, but there is no need to.  It's well explained through the scripture here. 

If You See This In Your Church Service - Run!

I saw this video a while back, and have been looking for it to post for a while.  It's quite funny, and frighteningly accurate.  This movement is incredibly popular.  What is subtly happening is God is becoming a background idea while entertainment and emotional manipulation become dominant.

Did A Russian Nuclear Anti-Ballistic Missile Split The Chelyabinsk Meteor?

This really hinges on the video, which could be hoaxed, we just don't know.   If it's real, in this vid we see something moving faster than the fireball and striking it, causing it to fragment.  Is it true?  Well, it's a region where Russia could have such weapons available.  Quite amazing if it is true. 

By Ed Ward, MD

The plasma explosion of a bolide http://www.brighthub.com/science/space/articles/115001.aspx is what is being claimed at Chelyabinsk and Cuba.

"Bolides that Explode

Exploding bolides are also called detonating fireballs. The reason why some bolides explode has to do with the composition of the object. If the internal composition is water-ice then the bolide will likely explode. This is because as the meteor enters the Earth's atmosphere and begins to descend, ram pressure generates a shock wave produced by the compression of gases in the Earth's atmosphere. This ram pressure causes the meteor to heat up which causes the water-ice inside the meteor to boil and when it reaches a critical stage it explodes violently, fragmenting the object into much smaller pieces. The smaller pieces will burn up through the atmosphere, seldom causing any injury to humans or damage to property."

The above scenario leaves very few fragments as in the comet explosion over Tunguska in 1908
http://www.physics.purdue.edu/people/faculty/yekim/1908_Tunguska_Kim.pdf . Since the entire projectile is the explosion it tends to leave very few fragments, unlike Chelyabinsk which left 2 masses almost equal to the original in size.

"Christopher Chyba and others have proposed a process whereby a stony meteorite could have exhibited the behavior of the Tunguska impactor. Their models show that when the forces opposing a body's descent become greater than the cohesive force holding it together, it blows apart, releasing nearly all its energy at once. The result is no crater, and damage distributed over a fairly wide radius, all of the damage being blast and thermal.

Three-dimensional numerical modelling of the Tunguska impact done by Utyuzhnikov and Rudenko in 2008 supports the comet hypothesis. According to their results, the comet matter dispersed in the atmosphere, while the destruction of the forest was caused by the shock wave." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunguska_event

All of the above references show virtually very little to no fragments remain from bollide explosions. But, at Chelyabinsk we have an explosion more similar to an explosion on solid rock with large fragments emerging.

It's no secret that Chelyabinsk is home to top secret research and is virtually surrounded by other top secret research cities.

"Chelyabinsk has had a long association (since the 1940s) with top-secret nuclear research, though this is more properly applicable to Chelyabinsk Oblast as a whole, as nuclear facilities such as Chelyabinsk-70 are, or were, located far outside the city.

"Chelyabinsk is an industrial city about the same size as New Orleans. Andrey says it's surrounded by other off-limits cities where top secret work is done,..." http://www.fox8live.com/story/21221039/a-local-man-from-chelyabinsk-reacts-to-meteor-strike-near-his-family

Enter: "Anti-Ballistic Missile - Gazelle:

53T6 (NATO reporting name: ABM-3 Gazelle, previously SH-08)[1] is a Russian anti-ballistic missile which works as part of the A-135 anti-ballistic missile system. It was designed in early 1980s and put in service in 1995.[2]

The missile is able to intercept incoming re-entry vehicles at a distance of up to 80­100 km. 53T6 is a two-staged solid-propellant missile armed with 10 kt nuclear warhead. The missile is about 10 meters in length and 1 meter in diameter. Its launch weight is 10 tons.[1][3]

The 53T6 missile is kept in silo-based launch container. Prior to launch its cover is blown off.

It was last tested in October 2009.[4] The Gazelle is a follow-on development of the ABM-1 Galosh."

It Appears the Pope has been Forced Out of Office

What seemed implausible at first glance, is becoming more and more likely by the day.  Pope Benedict was forced out of office to avoid being charged with heinous crimes while holding the office of Pope.  Most realize the Vatican has been covering up child sex abuse scandals all over the world involving their priests.  But this is the equivalent of an arrest warrant being served on the President.  While most think he deserves it, you just never think it could actually happen.

By Brett Wilkins

Rome - By remaining in the Vatican after resigning later this month, Pope Benedict XVI will enjoy immunity from prosecution in connection with the global epidemic of clergy sex abuse claims.
The Pope's decision to live in the Vatican City, a sovereign state, after his retirement means that he will be protected by both Vatican security and diplomatic immunity.
"His continued presence in the Vatican is necessary, otherwise he might be defenseless," a Vatican official told Reuters under the condition of anonymity. "He wouldn't have his immunity, his prerogatives, his security if he is anywhere else."
The source added that the pontiff should lead a "dignified existence" for the rest of his life.
Under the Lateran Pacts, the 1929 treaty between Italy and the Holy See that established the Vatican City as a sovereign state, those with Vatican citizenship enjoy immunity even if they travel into Italy. The Pope also enjoys diplomatic immunity as an official head of state. Efforts by renowned British evolutionary biologist and atheist Richard Dawkins and the late British-American author Christopher Hitchens to have Benedict arrested and prosecuted during a 2010 visit to Britain came to naught because of the Pontiff's diplomatic immunity.
But such immunity means that Benedict, whose pre-papal name was Joseph Ratzinger, would not be eligible for prosecution in connection with the worldwide epidemic of Catholic clergy sex abuse, mostly of children. Critics claim Ratzinger was instrumental in covering up allegations of abuse and protecting offending priests and other clergy.
"His record is terrible," David Clohessy, US executive director of Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), told the Guardian. "Before he became pope, his predecessor put him in charge of abuse claims."
"He has read thousands of pages of reports of the abuse cases from around the world," Clohessy continued. "He knows more about clergy sex crimes and cover-ups than anyone else in the church yet he has done precious little to protect children."

Stay Free part 36 - True Faith Shows - The Danger of the Idea of "Once Saved, Always Saved"

The overly simplistic ideal of "once saved, always saved", strips away such eternal truths like judgment for our sins, the authority and omnipotence of God, and that true faith reveals itself in obedience.  Paul warned believers to "work out your salvation with fear and trembling" (Philippians 2:12).  The point is to rejoice and grace and God's offer of salvation, but never to take it for granted.  Charles Spurgeon once said that "show me a man with an unchanged life, and I'll show you a man with an unchanged heart".  If you truly believe, you will bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit.  Examine yourself.  Trust me, it's a very good thing, and serves as a constant reminder that we are saved because God is good, not because we are good.  Heaven forbid!  Praise God our Lord and Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord!

GLOBAL VOLCANISM: Dramatic New Eruption On Mount Etna In Italy - New Strombolian Activity At Bocca Nuova

February 19, 2013 - SICILY, ITALY - Italy's Mount Etna sent lava and gas shooting toward the stars early this morning (Feb. 19), the first big eruption for the volcano in 2013.

The famous Sicilian volcano burst to life overnight, sending a fountain of fire into the air. The dramatic scene was captured in a video by Klaus Dorschfeldt, a videographer and webmaster at Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.

Mount Etna, one of the world's most active volcanoes, had emitted signs of an imminent paroxysm in recent weeks.

On Jan. 22, lava and strong flashes in the volcano's New Southeast Crater were clearly visible from the Sicilian foothills; these often herald a new paroxysm: short, violent eruptive bursts.

Dorschfeldt said he knew Mount Etna's recent signals could precede new activity. "[I've] followed the activity of Etna for many years, and with time you learn to know it as if it were your friend," he said in an email interview.

"Following it constantly [you] learn to be a keen observer and a minor change can lead to something important," he told OurAmazingPlanet.

The tallest volcano in Europe, Mount Etna is almost constantly spewing gas or lava. Its Bocca Nuova crater also erupted earlier this year, from Jan. 10 to Jan. 20. In 2011, Etna's violent bursts were spotted from space. - OAP.

DHS Supplier Provides Shooting Targets of American Gun Owners, Including Target of Pregnant Women

Company produces cardboard cut-outs of “non-traditional threats”: Pregnant women, elderly & children

Paul Joseph Watson
A provider of “realistic” shooting targets to the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies has created a line of “non-traditional threat” targets that include pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds and elderly American gun owners.
Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. is a 21-year designer and full service provider of training targets for the DHS, the Justice Department and thousands of law enforcement agencies throughout the country.
The company’s website offers a line of “No More Hesitation” targets ”designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.” The targets are, “meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusual targets for the first time.”
The targets include “pregnant woman threat,” “older man with shotgun,” “older man in home with shotgun,” “older woman with gun,” “young school aged girl,” “young mother on playground,” and “little boy with real gun.”
Why are top training target suppliers for the government supplying the likes of the DHS with “non-traditional threat” targets of children, pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds, and elderly American gun owners unless there is a demand for such items?
This is particularly alarming given the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased roughly 2 billion rounds of ammunition over the course of the last year, enough to wage a near 30 year war.
In comparison, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month.

Israel Planning to Build Holy Temple, Claims PA Official

reposted from Arutz 7
"The construction of the false Temple on the Temple Mount is closer than ever before," claims an official with the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
by Elad Benari
The head of manuscripts at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Najeh Bkeirat, has accused Israel of trying to "Judaize" the Temple Mount by building a new Holy Temple.
Speaking on January 4 to the Palestine journal, which is affiliated with the Hamas terrorist group, Bkeirat claimed that "the construction of the false Temple is closer than ever before."
Bkeirat claimed in the interview that an analysis of Jerusalem's development plans finds there is an intention to Judaize the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and within this framework build the Temple on its ruins and to then reduce the number of Arab residents in the city.
In order to deal with the "danger" of such a move, he called to increase the Muslim presence in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and hold educational programs in it, in addition to public relations activities about the importance of the mosque and the other Islamic holy places in Jerusalem.
Arabs continuously accuse Israel of "Judaizing" the Temple Mount, sometimes resorting to ridiculous propaganda such as accusing Israel of using chemicals to erode the foundations of the mosque in order to cause it to collapse.
The Popular Resistance Committees terrorist organization has threatened Israel that any harm to the Al-Aqsa mosque would "open the gates of hell against the Zionist enemy."
Meanwhile the Waqf, which was left in charge of the Temple Mount following Jerusalem’s reunification in 1967, has removed every sign of ancient Jewish presence at the Jewish holy site. The decision to leave the Temple Mount in the hands of the Waqf was made by then-Defense Minister Moshe Dayan.
At the entrance to the Temple Mount, a Waqf sign says, "The Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyard and everything in it is Islamic property". Police, in an attempt to appease the Waqf, discriminate against Jews. They limit the number of Jewish worshippers allowed on the Temple Mount at one time in order to prevent conflict with Muslim worshippers. They often close the Mount to Jews in response to Muslim riots – despite evidence that Muslim riots have been planned in advance for the specific purpose of forcing Jews out.
A recent report by archaeologists found that the Waqf is continuing to destroy Jewish antiquities on the Temple Mount in a direct violation of a ruling by the Supreme Court.

Welcome To Our First Fireball Storm - And No Telling When It Will End

Here are stories and videos of fireballs that have occurred since the Russian impact.  We are apparently experiencing a meteor storm of sorts, and the military won't be warning us of any that might impact us common folk.  It's classified, you know.

A few minutes ago, at 19:18 , a bright fireball was spotted in the skies of southern Italy.

The first reports Strait from Messina reported a fireball on the Ionian Sea , with director from north to south, greenish and very bright magnitude. We are awaiting further reports that allow us to understand the scope of the sighting. After what happened in Russia, where a real asteroid 17 meters caused 1,500 wounded, This term is much more common.

A fireball , or meteor meteoroid scientifically defined, is a piece of rock the size of a small stone, which enters our atmosphere at very high speeds, which in certain circumstances may be more than the 260,000 km / h.

The vision of these bodies is characterized by a ball of fire falling from the sky quickly, leaving behind a trail of light lasting a few seconds, and that only in very rare cases assumes a hazard similar to what happened in the region of Chelyabinsk . Can take various colors from white to red, green to orange. In certain circumstances may even explode, creating spectacular light flashes (called flares) and / or change color, creating a memorable show for lucky observers. These phenomena fact can not be predicted, and being often have unpredictable occasional observers entirely. There are also very rare circumstances where the cars also produce a roar caused by the explosion, like distant thunder.

Not very bright meteors can be observed in any night of the year, provided that we are in a dark place and away from light pollution. The trail becomes visible as the friction with air molecules heat them up to incandescence, creating light.Burning generally at an altitude of 80 km in our ionosphere and when they take a very high brightness is defined as “ fireballs ”, a term commonly used by fans but not accepted by the scientific community, which does not classify these objects according to their brightness.

Not all meteors are associated with real swarms, and in this case we are talking about meteors sporadic , random specks of dust in the solar system that orbit around the Sun, and that may end up in an unpredictable way on the path of our planet. Yet, most of the meteoroids that reach the ground, and then take the name of meteorites belong to this category.Probably this is because these fragments belonged to asteroids now disintegrated, while swarms represent the remains of ancient periodic comets that travel through the solar system.

We are facing an increasingly frequent event or is the result of normal? Without a doubt the phenomenon of meteors has fascinated observers of the sky since the dawn of time, and every day the Earth’s atmosphere receives milgiaia of rocky bodies, the size of grains of sand and rocks a little older, who are attracted by ‘gravitational pull of the Earth. So that we may draw a more complete picture, you need to provide some basic guidelines, such as the exact date and time, location, and the brightness of the event, the trajectory, morphology, color, duration, persistence of ‘any trail, any flare or explosions heard. The observation of large fireballs should be always referred to collection centers or to groups astrophiles closer, in order to provide valuable elements for their study.

There were a number of videos from Rio of this daytime fireball.  Let's face it, something of a grand universal scale is happening, something like a birth pang of a new age.

Dazed and Confused? Don't Worry, It's Just the Drugs in Drinking Water

Posted on by

There is an unhealthy cocktail of drugs in your drinking water. With each sip, you self-medicate with anti-anxiety and even psychotropic drugs.

Without knowing it, you are being medicated. Maybe even now you have a cup of coffee or tea in hand, filled with water compliments of your local municipal system. Think those sodas and energy drinks are any better? Think again. Unless the water is specifically filtered for pharmaceuticals, you’re still getting dosed.

Did you know with each sip, you self-medicate with anti-anxiety and even psychotropic drugs? That’s right, according to a report released this past week in Science, environmental pollution by pharmaceutical companies are a major threat to our world’s water supplies.

According to the study’s abstract;

“Here we show that a benzodiazepine anxiolytic drug (oxazepam) alters behavior and feeding rate of wild European perch (Perca fluviatilis) at concentrations encountered in effluent-influenced surface waters. Individuals exposed to water with dilute drug concentrations (1.8 micrograms liter–1) exhibited increased activity, reduced sociality, and higher feeding rate. As such, our results show that anxiolytic drugs in surface waters alter animal behaviors that are known to have ecological and evolutionary consequences.”

According to Wiki, oxazepam is a benzodiazepine used extensively since the 1960s for the treatment of anxiety and insomnia and in the control of symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.

Upon further research, the side effects of oxazepam may include dizziness, drowsiness, headache, memory impairment, paradoxical excitement, retrograde amnesia, but does not affect transient global amnesia. Side effects due to rapid decrease in dose or abrupt withdrawal from oxazepam may include abdominal and muscle cramps, convulsions, depression, inability to fall asleep or stay asleep, sweating, tremors, or vomiting.
Other reports, such as one by Michael Thomas of Idaho State University in Pocatello, and published in the scientific journal, PLoS ONE, states that low levels of antidepressants and other psychoactive drugs in water supplies can trigger the expression of genes associated with autism.

According to Thomas, this raises the possibility that pregnant women who drink water containing trace concentrations of these drugs will pass them along to the fetus. The fetus has a leaky blood-brain-barrier, which allows drugs to pass directly into the developing brain.

“The drugs affect activity of serotonin and other neurotransmitters, which are important in the development of neurological networks and, basically, affect how the brain is wired,” Thomas said.
In the newest research, fathead minnows were allowed to swim in a low-level cocktail of anti-epileptic drug carbamazepine and two selective serotonin uptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants, fluoxetine and venlafaxine. The minnows were exposed to the drugs for 18 days. It was found that the genes associated with autism in humans appeared to be significantly altered. Most of the genes involved are significant in early brain development and wiring.

So how do the drugs enter our bodies? Basically, the same way they exit. The cocktail of drugs enter our water system through those taking the drugs. And in the past 25 years, psychotropic drug use has increased dramatically. Around 80 per cent of each drug passes straight through the human body without being broken down. That waste water gets cycled through the municipal treatment plant then passes right back into the environment. In nearly all communities, water purification systems cannot filter out these pharmaceuticals. “They just fly right through,” says Thomas, which means they ultimately end up back in your tap water.

Man, 65, believed to have died from spontaneous combustion

Always bizarre, spontaneous human combustion pops up from time to time, but without any good explanation as to why.  Sadly, we add one more victim to the list.

By Rachel Quigley

Police believe a man may have died from spontaneous combustion after they found his burned body in his home but no other fire damage or evidence of accelerant use.
Sequoyah County authorities are determining the circumstances surrounding the death of 65-year-old Danny Vanzandt after his charred remains were found at his Tulsa home on Monday.

After neighbors saw smoke coming from the house they called the fire service and attempted to put out what they thought was a pile of burning trash.
They soon realized it was in fact a body.
Sequoyah County authorities are attempting to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of 65-year-old Danny Vanzandt after his charred remains were found at his Tulsa home on Monday.
Sequoyah County: Authorities are attempting to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of 65-year-old Danny Vanzandt after his charred remains were found at his Tulsa home on Monday

Victim: The 65-year-old had a history of heavy drinking and smoking, but Sheriff Lockhart said the way his body was burned was inconsistent with an accidental fire - such as from a cigarette dropping

Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart said: 'This is very bizarre. You’re thinking someone poured something on him, but there was no fire source.

'The body was burned and it was incinerated. I think there is only about 200 cases (of spontaneous combustion) worldwide. I'm not saying this is what it is, but I haven't ruled it out.'
Sheriff Lockhart spent about 20 years as an arson investigator for the Fort Smith, Arkansas Police Department, and said he had never seen anything like it.
The floor below the 65-year-old was not damaged and there was no sign that any accelerant was used.

Authorities said the man had a history of heavy drinking and smoking, according to Tulsa World.
But Lockhart said the way his body was burned was inconsistent with an accidental fire - such as from a cigarette dropping.
Family members said they noticed the back window of the man’s pickup truck was busted out.
An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.

The 'Robocop' headset that lets police see through walls and identify suspects just by LOOKING at them

Once again, a classic definition of angeltech. That is, technology that gives human beings what was once considered supernatural powers. Technology is one of the most significant indicators of how close we are to the end of the age. Kings and rulers have to beleive they have the firepower and technology to take on and overthrow God Himself. I know this sounds insane, (because it is) but it is clearly prophesied in Psalm 2. And it is close.
  • Headset's display uses infrared to help spot criminals in a building
  • High definition camera can be used to identify suspects
  • Version for fire and ambulance crews also under development
  • Will compete with Google's Glass headset, which is also expected to go on sale this year
By Mark Prigg

A headset computer promises to give police officers and other emergency services Robocop-like abilities.

The Golden-i device, similar to the Glass project being developed by Google, offers the ability to see through walls thanks to infrared technology.

It is operated by voice commands and head movements and allows the wearer to access vital information without using their hands.

US has failed to pursue the church pedophilia: UN

Now this is irony.  The most corrupt political organization in the world (and you thought it was the U.S. Senate:) the U.N., FINALLY calling out the Roman Church for it's continuing coverup, intimidation, and if all else fails, buy-outs of those many victims sexually abused by it's priests.  (Hey Rome, if you really want to stop this, just let your priests marry, women that is!)  I promise you, I spend too much time every day wondering if the powers-that-be in the world can be anymore wicked and corrupt.  And almost daily a new headline proves they can.  Can it be much longer before Messiah returns?  I think not.  I hope not.  Hosanna in the Highest (Save us Lord!)

We can only hope that his successor opens the secret files and treats victims with the respect they deserve."

Keith Porteous Wood, director of the National Secular Society
The United Nations has accused the United States for failing to pursue cases of child sex abuse among religious leaders and groups.

The Committee on the Rights of the Child released a report this month highlighting widespread sexual abuse committed by clerics and staff of religious institutions in America, along with a lack of measures “to properly investigate cases and prosecute them".

"The committee is deeply concerned at information of sexual abuse committed by clerics and leading members of certain faith-based organizations and religious institutions on a massive and long-term scale," the report said.

This comes as the American Catholic Church attempts to tackle an ongoing nationwide scandal over a pattern of covering-up allegations of sexual crimes committed by abusive priests.

Last week, Pope Benedict announced his resignation from his position, citing an inability to carry out his papal duties, while also apologizing for the widespread sexual abuse in the church, giving hope to those who seek to open Church files to help prosecute undiscovered cases of clerical sexual cruelty.

"We can only hope that his successor opens the secret files and treats victims with the respect they deserve," said Keith Porteous Wood, the director of the National Secular Society.

Sexual abuses in the Catholic Church arose in the 1980s and hit a major crisis in 2002 when systematic cover-ups were exposed.

Approximately 80 percent of reported cases of sexual abuse of minors worldwide have happened in the United States occurring in cities across the country, including Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Orange County, Palm Beach, Philadelphia and Portland, as well as in dioceses across Europe.

The Church and its insurance companies in the US have paid over USD 2 billion in damages to the victims of abuse.

Jerusalem 3rd temple will be built 2012-2014. Abomination of Desolation

Interesting stuff from the always bombastic Paul Begley.  I disagree with just one point, and that point is the time it will take to build a temple once they can begin construction.  Every bit of material is ready and consecrated for a temporary tabernacle which could be erected within "days"!

Global Capitalism and the Queen of Babylon:

"For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies... for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth." (Revelation 18:3,23-24)

What happens to LOVE in a fully commercialized world,
where marketplace transactions have become
the dominant form of social interaction?
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
(Mat 24:11-13)
Jesus came to earth not just to teach us a new "belief system," but to demonstrate a radically new way of living out our lives! Jesus taught us the Golden Rule of loving God and loving our neighbors as ourselves, and He even taught us to love our enemies. He also warned us to resist our fleshly lusts and to reject the pursuits of power and worldly gain. In place of carnal pursuits He taught us to seek a relationship with our Father in Heaven and to accept the love and the supernatural power that flow from that relationship. The Kingdom of Heaven was supposed to be our goal and our focus, worth giving up everything on earth to obtain! Yet Jesus Himself warned that false prophets would come and teach another way, leading to the decline of LOVE itself throughout the world, and the rise of wickedness. When society became convinced that we could prosper through material gain alone, without loving each other, and that social progress could be achieved by giving freedom to wickedness (with the "love of money" being the root of wickedness), then we headed foolishly down the broad path that leads to destruction.
“For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh…
While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption:
for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.”
(2 Peter 2:18-19)

The corrupt foundations of Capitalism:
  • Love NOT thy Neighbor
  • The Love of Money
  • Lust, Lust, Pride (1 John 2:16)
  • Covetousness (Luke 12:15)
  • Competition (James 4:1-4)
  • Consumerism (Revelation 3:17-18 and 18:11-15)
  • Urbanization (Isaiah 14:21)
The principles of the Kingdom of Heaven
The principles of Babylon the Great

The Golden Rule:
All things therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, even so do ye also unto them: for this is the law and the prophets. (Mat 7:12)
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Mat 22:35-40)
Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet;” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.
(Romans 13:8-10)

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. (John 15:12)

The Bride of Christ lives by the commandment of,
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart...
and thy neighbor as thyself."

Capitalism is the world's first globally influential life system (a secular religion) in which the Golden Rule is seen as either socially destructive or, at the very least, unnecessary. "Love thy neighbor" is viewed as unnecessary because capitalist society advances and prospers through self-serving voluntary marketplace exchanges. On the other hand, some of the most clever and influential promoters of Babylon's money-based commercial system, such as Bernard Mandeville, Ludwig Mises, Friedrich Hayek and Ayn Rand, actually argue that the principle of "love thy neighbor" is bad for society at large.
Hayek wrote, “It may be asked how restraints on instinctual demands serve to coordinate the activities of larger numbers. As an example, continued obedience to the command to treat all men as neighbours would have prevented the growth of an extended order. For those now living within the extended order gain from not treating one another as neighbours, and by applying, in their interactions, rules of the extended order – such as those of several property and contract - instead of the rules of solidarity and altruism. An order in which everyone treated his neighbour as himself would be one where comparatively few could be fruitful and multiply.” Friedrich Hayek, The Fatal Conceit, page 13.
The Great Harlot of Babylon lives by the commandment of,
"Thou shalt love the world with all thy heart,
and yourself more than anybody else."

“That interdependence of all men, which is now in everybody’s mouth and which tends
to make all mankind One World, not only is the effect of the market order
but could not have been brought about by any other means.”
Pro-Capitalist economist Friedrich Hayek

Law, Legislation and Liberty,
as quoted by Alan Ebenstein in Friedrich Hayek: A Biography, 2001, page v

The Root of all Evil: But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (1Ti 6:9-10)
But know this, that in the last days grievous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money...
(2Ti 3:1-2)

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
(Mat 6:19-21)

Capitalism promotes maximum freedom for markets and merchants and relentlessly transforms anything and everything into commodities to be bought and sold in the marketplace.
The primary commodity of the global marketplace is money itself, and those within the global financial matrix find that the pursuit of money becomes necessary for survival itself, while capital accumulation becomes the basis of the whole investment-driven scheme.
Indeed, within a capitalist system the "love of money" becomes the foundation of society, and from this root all kinds of various evils bear fruit.

The Root of evil Avarice,
That damn'd ill-natur'd baneful Vice,
Was Slave to Prodigality,
That Noble Sin; whilst Luxury.
Employ'd a Million of the Poor,
And odious Pride a Million more
Envy it self, and Vanity
Were Ministers of Industry;
Their darling Folly, Fickleness
In Diet, Furniture, and Dress,
That strange, ridic'lous Vice, was made
The very Wheel, that turn'd the Trade.
Bernard Mandeville, the "Mastermind" of early Capitalism
from The Fable of the Bees: or Private Vices, Public Benefits, (1714),
in which Mandeville argues that sin, wickedness, and all manner of social vices
are actually good for society simply because they promote commerce
Lust, Lust, Pride: And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. (Mar 4:18-19) For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven... (Philippians 3:17-20)
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. (1Jn 2:15-17)
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. (Rom 13:12-14)

Capitalism depends upon the continually expanding production and consumption of commodities. When this cycle starts to slow down we get anxious and call it a "recession," and when it reverses we panic and call it a "depression."
The commodities that drive the engine of global capitalism are primarily marketed by appealing to mankind's carnal desires, as marketing expert Ernest Dichter (1907-1991) was keen to point out:
"One of the basic problems of this [American] prosperity, then, is to give people the sanction and justification to enjoy it and to demonstrate the hedonistic approach to his life is a moral, not an immoral, one. This permission given to the consumer to enjoy his life freely… must be one of the central themes of every advertising display and sales promotion plan.”
“On another occasion Dr. Dichter pointed out that the public’s shift away from its 'puritan complex' was enhancing the power of three major sales appeals: the desire for comfort, for luxury, and for prestige.” (quotes taken from Vance Packard, The Hidden Persuaders, 1957, pages 237-238)
Global Capitalism is the great end-times Maximum Temptation Delivery System, marketing the "things of this world" to the masses, and turning hearts and minds either to the daily grind of mere survival, or seducing them into the spiritually hollow pursuits of money, selfish lusts, and pride.

"This is a world in which the neoliberal ethic of intense possessive individualism can become the template for human personality socialization. The impact is increasing individualistic isolation, anxiety, and neurosis in the midst of one of the greatest social achievements (at least judging by its enormous scale and all-embracing character) ever constructed in human history
for the realization of our hearts’ desire."

Covetousness: Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
(Luke 12:15)

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. (Rev 3:17)
For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. (Eph 5:7)
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
(1Ti 6:6-8)

"We must shift America from a “needs” to a “desires” culture. People must be trained to desire, to want new things even before the old are entirely consumed. We must shape a new mentality in America. Man’s desires must overshadow his needs." Paul Mazur, investment banker at Lehman Brothers, circa 1928

"Our enormously productive economy demands that we make consumption our way of life, that we convert the buying and use of goods into rituals, that we seek our spiritual satisfactions, our ego satisfactions, in consumption. The measure of social status, of social acceptance, of prestige, is now to be found in our consumptive patterns…" Victor Lebow, economist, 1955
"It appears that the effort to constantly be dissatisfied and want more is a natural phenomenon - and lies at the very heart of our civilization... We can even go so far as to say that discontent is the engine of progress and of market capitalism. Frank Knight, probably the most important Chicago economist of the last generation, noted: "[I]t is human nature to be more dissatisfied the better off one is." George Stigler, Knight's student, even wrote, "The chief thing which the common-sense individual wants is not satisfactions for the wants he has, but more, and better wants. In our constant desire to have more and more, we have sacrificed the pleasantness of labor. We want too much and so we work too much. We are by far the richest civilization that has ever existed, but we are just as far from the word "enough" or from satisfaction, if not further, than at any time in the distinct "primitive" past. In one sentence: If we ourselves did not have to constantly increase GDP and productivity at all costs, we would not have to also constantly overwork ourselves in the 'sweat of our faces.'" Tomas Sedlacek, Economics of Good and Evil, kindle, location 3681

"The parallelism between economic laissez-faire and Darwinianism... is now seen ... to be very close indeed. Just as Darwin invoked sexual love, acting through sexual selection... so the individualist invokes the love of money, acting through the pursuit of profit, as an adjutant to natural selection, to bring about the production on the greatest possible scale of what is most strongly desired as measured by exchange value."

John Maynard Keynes

The End of Laissez-Faire (1926)
Competition: From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4:1-4)
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
(Gal 5:13-16)

One of the foundations of a "successfully functioning" capitalist society is competition. The altruistic ethic of "people working together" that is formed in the family is discarded in favor of the competitive individualistic ethic of "every man for himself." This is great for the rich and powerful who have the resources to win this global competition, but not so good for the people at the bottom:
"...increasing competition within the informal sector depletes social capital and dissolves self-help networks and solidarities essential to the survival of the very poor... An NGO worker in Haiti, Yolette Etienne, describes the ultimate logic of neoliberal individualism in a context of absolute immiseration: 'Now everything is for sale. The woman used to receive you with hospitality, give you coffee, share all that she had in her home. I could go get a plate of food at a neighbor's house; a child could get a coconut at her grandmother's, two mangoes at another aunt's. But these acts of solidarity are disappearing with the growth of poverty. Now when you arrive somewhere, either the woman offers to sell you a cup of coffee or she has no coffee at all. The tradition of mutual giving that allowed us to help each other and survive - this is all being lost.'" Mike Davis, Planet of Slums, 2006, kindle edition, location 4269
"Many decent people are locked into the embrace of a system that is rotten to the core. If they are to earn even a reasonable living they have no other job option except to give the devil his due... The coercive laws of competition force us all, to some degree, to obey the rules of this ruthless and uncaring system." David Harvey, Rebel Cities, 2012, kindle, location 3059

"Modern Capitalist society, with its relations of production, of exchange and of property,
a society that has conjured up such gigantic means of production and of exchange,
is like the sorcerer who is no longer able to control the powers of the nether world
whom he has called up by his spells."
Karl Marx
The Communist Manifesto (1848)
Consumerism: Jesus cries out to the Laodicean Church using the language of consumerism, perhaps the only language that this pathetic end-times Church can understand:
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. (Rev 3:17-18)
Jesus warns us all, "Please listen to what I am saying and buy from me! I have some heavenly commodities that you desperately need!"
And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing... for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. (Rev 18:11-15, 23)

"The satisfaction that no longer comes from using the commodities produced in abundance is now sought through recognition of their value as commodities. Consumers are filled with religious fervor for the sovereign freedom of commodities whose use has become an end in itself. Waves of enthusiasm for particular products are propagated by all communications media. A film sparks a fashion craze; a magazine publicizes night spots which in turn spin off different lines of products. The proliferation of faddish gadgets reflects the fact that as the mass of commodities becomes increasingly absurd, absurdity itself becomes a commodity. Trinkets such as key chains which come as free bonuses with the purchase of some luxury product, but which end up being traded back and forth as valued collectibles in their own right, reflect a mystical self-abandonment to commodity transcendence. Those who collect the trinkets that have been manufactured for the sole purpose of being collected are accumulating commodity indulgences
— glorious tokens of the commodity's real presence among the faithful. Reified people proudly display the proofs of their intimacy with the commodity. Like the old religious fetishism, with its convulsory raptures and miraculous cures, the fetishism of commodities generates its own moments of fervent exaltation. All this is useful for only one purpose: producing habitual submission." Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle, 1967, kindle, location 928 "It is possible to think of consumption as an expression of individualism and self-worship. We could believe that the primary religious focus of modern life is the ego and see consumption as one of the ways in which the self gathers worshippers — my car, my house, my computer. Consumption can be seen as the means whereby the individual realises the wishes and ambitions of the self as end. For many years I accepted that view but, although it contains important insights, I think it has been overtaken. In the dynamics of our culture, consumption has now become the dominant faith and individualism, together with other subordinate commitments, serves it. Consumption is collectivist-individualist, nationalist-internationalist, the healer, the entertainer, the lover, the spiritual, the feeder and the consolation. It is the chief rival to God in our culture." Alan Storkey, "Postmodernism Is Consumption," from Christ and Consumerism: Critical reflections on the spirit of our age, Edited by Craig Bartholomew and Thorsten Moritz, 2000, page 100.

"The spectacle is the stage at which the commodity has succeeded in totally colonizing social life. Commodification is not only visible, we no longer see anything else; the world we see is the world of the commodity... The society's entire sold labor has become a total commodity whose constant turnover must be maintained at all cost."

Urbanization: Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities. (Isaiah 14:21 - Judgment against the end-times Antichrist 'King of Babylon' - Isaiah 14 is the parallel to Rev. 18)
Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honourable of the earth? The LORD of hosts hath purposed it, to stain the pride of all glory, and to bring into contempt all the honourable of the earth. (Isaiah 23:8-9)

Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD... With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches... By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned… Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick... (Ezekiel 28:2,4-5,16)

Woe to [Ninevah] the city of blood, full of lies, full of plunder, never without victims! ...all because of the wanton lust of a harlot, alluring, the mistress of sorceries, who enslaved nations by her prostitution and peoples by her witchcraft. "I am against you," declares the LORD Almighty... You have increased the number of your merchants till they are more than the stars of the sky, but like locusts they strip the land and then fly away."
(Nahum 3:1,4-5,16, NIV)

Urbanization is directly related to the rise of the market economy of capitalism. When the land itself becomes a commodity and is acquired and accumulated into the hands of the wealthy few then rural folk are often forced from the land and/or drawn away by the seductive promises that city-life offers. In fact right now, and for the next 15 years or so, China is experiencing the single greatest mass migration in the history of the world, as up to 345 million people leave rural areas and enter China's cities looking for work.
"The earth has urbanized even faster than originally predicted... In 1950 there were 86 cities in the world with a population of more than one million; today there are 400, and by 2015 there will be at least 550. Cities, indeed, have absorbed nearly two-thirds of the global population explosion since 1950... cities will account for virtually all future population growth, which is expected to peak at about 10 billion in 2050." Mike Davis, Planet of Slums, 2006, kindle edition, location 64
The mass urbanization that is part and parcel of the triumph of global capitalism is a way to domesticate and control the masses, maximizing the value of their labor through wage slavery, turning them into obedient consumers, and caging them in close quarters. The merchants think they come out on top in this game, but the vast majority of humanity loses. In the end, despite the rise of material comforts that global capitalism has brought us, the hidden spiritual costs have been far too great.
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Mark 8:36-37)

"A living Christianity cannot exist side by side with, and within, Capitalism."
