Gates of Hell Opening??? – Cause of Burning Hole in Midway Remains a Mystery

MIDWAY, Ark. (KY3) – It was an unusual call for the Midway Volunteer Fire Department.

A volleyball-sized hole was burning, with flames shooting out of it off Highway 5 South in Midway.

Fire Chief Don Tucker said, “A fire was burning roughly two feet in diameter, eight feet tall. And it burned for approximately 40 minutes.”

The homeowner who lives nearby said he came outside Monday morning to flames shooting from the hole up to the man’s nose on this billboard.

Now county leaders are trying to figure out how the phenomenon started.

Baxter County Judge Mickey Pendergrass said, “We don’t believe that the devil showed up, or the meteorites landed, or the big booms happened.”

But the burning question is what caused the hole and the flames?

Pendergrass said, “We have contacted every utility company that is in the area. And we know for a fact now that they have lost no service they have nothing there. So there’s nothing to do with utilities, which would be our first inclination to believe something was there.”

No one knows where the hole ends.

A few geologists said they don’t believe it was caused by a meteorite or lightning strike. And one with the Arkansas Geological Survey said how it started is a mystery.

Arkansas Geological Survey Professional Geologist Ty Johnson said,
“I can’t think of any geologic situation that would allow that to happen. Not in this area. There’s not any fossil fuels, or natural gas or petroleum that occurs in the area.”

But he wants to dig for some possible answers.

Johnson said, “I imagine you would have to do some serious excavation to find out the source of that. We would be happy to go up there and look. I’ve already talked about going up there and looking at the area. There probably isn’t a lot we can tell but we can get an idea of the general surroundings.”

The homeowner said he mowed the lawn recently and did not notice any kind of hole there before the fire.

Pendergrass said, “What ignited it and what fueled it we still don’t know. And it may remain forever a mystery.”

 

 

Poison drops on Molesworth Station suspended after 1080 drop kills dozens of red deer

Poison drops on New Zealand’s largest farm have been suspended after scores of red deer died in a 1080 operation targeting possum.

Deer hunters self-funded an aerial survey of the historic 180,000-hectare Molesworth Station in the South Island after a 1080 (monosodium fluoroacetate) drop in October last year by TBFree NZ was feared to have unintentionally wiped out as many as 345 red deer.

The final number of carcasses spotted lying on the vast farmland is yet to be publicly-released, with the Marlborough branch of the New Zealand Deerstalkers Association (NZDA) saying its scientists are still writing their comprehensive report.

Meanwhile, Ospri, the government-backed company, formerly the Animal Health Board, which is fighting to eradicate tuberculosis (TB), has deferred any further drops on Molesworth Station “until at least next year”.

“The deferment was decided after the initial possum control operation [in] 2017 killed more deer than expected, meaning future operations may need to use deer repellent over a wide area,” an Ospri spokesman told the Herald.

Ospri say they are now undertaking further research and testing into alternative repellents, which could also prove “significantly more cost effective”.

NZDA Marlborough branch committee member Wayne Smith welcomed the move.

“We are pleased that further 1080 drops have been deferred,” he said.

“Hopefully the new deer repellent options will be effective as well and in future we see a large reduction in by-kill from these operations.”

The Department of Conservation (DoC), which owns the station and leases it to Landcorp Farming Ltd, gives Ospri permission to run pest control operations on public conservation land.

Ospri’s TBfree nine-year programme is designed to eradicate bovine tuberculosis from Molesworth, which has a long history with TB infection in its cattle herd and wildlife, dating back to the early 1960s.

Eight helicopters using GPS dropped toxic bait at 2kg/ha on a 61,200ha area late last October after “significant public and community engagement”.

“The justification for possum control was compelling and also carried significant conservation benefits,” an Ospri spokesman said at the time.

“Ospri recognises that there is always a risk of deer by-kill as a result of 1080 application for pest control and is committed to working with hunting groups to minimise the impacts on these populations through targeted use of deer repellent.”

DOC South Marlborough Operations Manager Phil Bradfield denied claims that local hunters weren’t allowed to go shoot deer before the 1080 drop.

“Recreational deer hunting is allowed on Molesworth with a permit and hunters were on Molesworth leading right up to the operation,” he said.

Experienced helicopter pilot Bill Hales, who has 40 years’ experience as a wild animal recovery operator (WARO), was disappointed by a “crying shame of a wasted resource”.

“Why not let us guys in there for three months before you have a poison drop and harvest the product? Why waste the resource?” he said.

Animal rights groups are opposed to the use of 1080.

Ospri said that until an alternative to 1080 is found, it remains “the best tool in the toolbox for controlling the introduced predators that transmit TB between wildlife and livestock”.

Some Truth’s of Jerusalem That Many Do Not Agree On – Seek And Ye Shall Find!

Over the last few years, I have been on a journey of spiritual growth. One of immense learning of the Truth to what IS and what is just hearsay or false beliefs without any diligent research that I demand from those who “talk” about the past and their belief’s of it. So many have been led astray and I feel that on this blog, I must bring to light those things that I find searching the web as another piece to the puzzle that I post here.
I share these video’s, paper’s and articles purely for the search for Truth. I gain no monetary value of my time dispensed herein, but simply ask for you to consider and search even deeper for the Truth of Yahweh.
All that I post on this site is to stimulate your curiosity and for YOU, dear reader, to ask more questions of the Holy Spirit! With this, I humbly ask the viewer’s of this site to consider these video’s and all the posts I have been uploading. We are approaching the imminent return of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach. Sept. 23rd, Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner, the Red Heifer and the like that I post, are all “signs” that show us “flyer’s” (if you will) of His coming. There is a reason we are to watch the sky and a reason why we “see” certain events happening in Israel that should be keeping us aware of His imminent return. Keep us on our toes so to speak because through men, G-d will use to bring about His plans and we are commanded to watch for these things. Some impressive things are going on in the heavens above.
When the Lord returns, will He find faith? Or will He find those who keep denying the “signs” of His coming, even though we cannot explain it all? There is a reason for these signs… and sadly, many “Christian’s” are mocking these signs and taking them for granted and NOT seeing them for what they really are… markers! There is a reason why this comet was closest to Earth on Rosh Hashanah. There is a reason why this comet was in Auriga – a.k.a = The Shepherd! Do I need to be more blunt! Stop being so hard hearted and just believe as a child of G-d! Because this was the same attitude the Sadducees and the Pharisee’s had which caused their disbelief of His first coming. And we all know how Yeshua felt about them and their beliefs! Just Saying…

Im-just-sayin

Those who believe, will receive! Matthew 21:22!
Here is my pic (taken 9-05-2018 early morning 3 a.m.) of Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner:

Temple Institute Announces Birth of Red Heifer

Many will be purified and purged and refined; the wicked will act wickedly and none of the wicked will understand; but the knowledgeable will understand. Daniel 12:10 (The Israel Bible™)

Last Tuesday, the Temple Institute’s Red Heifer program was blessed with results; an entirely red female calf was born, paving the way for re-establishing the Temple service and marking the final stage of redemption.

Almost three years ago the Temple Institute inaugurated its Raise a Red Heifer in Israel program. Due to laws restricting the importation of live cattle into Israel, the Temple Institute imported frozen embryos of red angus, implanting them in Israeli domestic cows. The pregnant cows were raised on cattle ranches in different locations throughout the country. The cows are giving birth this summer with several calves already having been born.

One week after it’s birth, the newborn red heifer was certified by a board of rabbis as fulfilling all the Biblical requirements. The rabbis emphasized that the heifer could, at any time, acquire a blemish rendering it unsuitable. They will be inspecting the calf periodically to verify its condition.

The red heifer was the main component in the Biblically mandated process of ritual purification for impurity that results from proximity or contact with a dead body.  Because the elements needed for this ceremony have been lacking since the destruction of the Second Temple, all Jews today are considered ritually impure, thereby preventing the return of the Temple service.

The red heifer is described in the Book of Numbers.

“This is the ritual law that Hashem has commanded: Instruct B’nei Yisrael to bring you a red cow without blemish, in which there is no defect and on which no yoke has been laid. Numbers 19:2

Several heifers have been found in recent years that seemed to qualify but ultimately were unsuited for the ritual. Earlier this month, two calves born in Israel to the Institute’s red heifer program were deemed to be unsuitable for the performance of the mitzvah. One calf was a bull while the second, a heifer, had a small patch of white hair which disqualified her.

The heifer, born from a natural birth, must be entirely red, with no more than two non-red hairs on its body. It must also never have been used for any labor or have been impregnated. The existence of such a heifer is considered a biological anomaly and very rare. Fortunately, the ritual requires an infinitesimally small quantity of ashes. From the time of Moses, who personally prepared the first heifer, until the destruction of the Temple, only nine red heifers were prepared. Nonetheless, this was sufficient to maintain the ritual purity of the entire nation for almost 2,000 years.

Sign the Petition — Confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Now

https://aclj.org/supreme-court/confirm-judge-kavanaugh-to-the-supreme-court-now

The future of the Supreme Court is at stake.

The next Supreme Court Justice will likely be the determinative vote on the most monumental issues of our time: abortion, religious liberty, national security, and free speech.

President Trump has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Judge Kavanaugh is an immensely qualified conservative. He has a proven record of unwavering commitment to the rule of law and the Constitution.

But the Left has begun a scorched-earth campaign to defeat him. They don’t want a consistent conservative on the Court. They will stop at nothing.

We’re mobilizing on Capitol Hill, demanding Judge Kavanaugh’s quick confirmation.

This could remake the Supreme Court for generations. The Left is unleashing an unrelenting assault to defeat the nominee. This will be the fight of a lifetime. Now it’s time to put Judge Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.

Take action with us today.

New Beginnings for Biblical UN?

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 4, 2018 , 3:00 pm
And the many peoples shall go and say: “Come, Let us go up to the Mount of Hashem, To the House of the God of Yaakov; That He may instruct us in His ways, And that we may walk in His paths.” For instruction shall come forth from Tzion, The word of Hashem from Yerushalayim. Isaiah 2:3 (The Israel Bible™)

On Monday night, approximately one thousand people gathered at the foot of the Temple Mount for the World Creation Concert. However, what took place was not merely wonderful music accompanied by a spectacular light show: the event actually encapsulated several prophetic incidents taking place at once. In the not-so-distant future, the event may be identified as the moment a new, Biblically correct United Nations was established, potentially leading to a new era of global cooperation.
The Sanhedrin and the Mikdash (Temple) Educational Center hosted the World Creation Concert at the Jerusalem Archaeological Park – Davidson Center, arranging for it to take place one day before the 25th of the Hebrew month of Elul, the 5778th anniversary of the creation of the world according to Jewish tradition. The motive behind the timing was to give the event universal significance. The Temple Mount was chosen as the location because, according to Jewish tradition, the creation of the world began at the even shtiya (foundation stone) that lay under the Holy of Holies in the Temple.
The connection between the Temple and the creation of the world was beautifully presented throughout the concert. The music followed the six-days of creation with some sections accompanied by choral presentations of Psalms that mirrored that particular aspect of creation. The creation of light was played while images of the gold menorah were projected onto the ancient walls. The creation of the oceans was accompanied by images of the Sea of Solomon, the brass laver that was used to wash the hands and feet of the priests before they performed the Temple service.

Perhaps the most powerful image was also the most low-tech element. At several points during the performance, the musicians rested their instruments while Kohanim (Jewish male descendants of Aaron the priest) mounted the ramparts in full priestly garb. The blasts of shofarot (rams’ horns) and silver trumpets prepared for use in the Third Temple echoed in the night, recreating the glory of the Temple as it appeared 2,000 years ago.
One non-musical element of the concert was powerfully prophetic. For several months preceding the event, the Sanhedrin had worked to contact foreign governments, inviting them to take their place as representatives of the 70 nations who populated the world, listed in the Bible as the grandsons of Noah. Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico answered the call, sending high-ranking delegations to attend.
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin described that the concert has a vital role to play in helping the nations of the world in joining together to address these universal threats the world today.
“The world is being threatened in so many ways; ecologically, atomic weapons, terrorism, economically,” Rabbi Weiss told Breaking Israel News. “The United Nations has failed to unite the world in any effort to cope with these issues. That is because the UN is not based on Biblical principles that unite mankind. Human rights originated in the Bible, as did laws governing war. Ecology is a Biblical concept. When the nations came to Jerusalem to pray together in the Temple, they did so in recognition of the human principles that we all share. The United Nations rejected these human principles that bind and as such, has become a political battlefield that only makes these problems worse. They have appointed human rights violators to preside over the Human Rights Council. There is no justice in the International Court of Justice.”
“We are seeing the end of the UN, as the US and Israel separate themselves from it, “Rabbi Weiss said. “The United Nations should have collapsed long ago but it has drawn power from its decision to establish the State of Israel in 1948.”
The Biblical Sanhedrin in Jerusalem was a gathering point for universal cooperation and justice. The high-point of the concert came when the foreign representatives went up to the stage to sign an agreement with the Sanhedrin.

By signing, the nations acknowledged that they were answering a call by the Sanhedrin of Israel to accompany the people of God, as peoples, nations, and individuals toward establishing the Temple in Jerusalem as a house of prayer for all nations as prophesied in the Bible.
I will bring them to My sacred mount And let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices Shall be welcome on My mizbayach; For My House shall be called A house of prayer for all peoples.” Isaiah 56:7
The text of the declaration was as follows:Sa
“The Sanhedrin – the council of 71 sages, in the courtyards of the holy Temple in Jerusalem, has called on 70 nations to pray to the Creator of the world on the 23rd of Elul, 5778, at the World Creation concert “
“The declaration of the nations that accompany the people of God:
“We, as representatives of our nations, declare that according to the laws of Torah that God to Moses at Mount of Sinai, and according to the prophets of Israel and all the books of the Bible we wish to accompany the people of God, the people of Israel, to the place chosen by God, the Temple on Mount, Moriah, the place of binding the of Isaac.
“All this in order to serve only the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as it is written:
“That my house will be and house of prayer shall be called to ALL peoples”
We are all gathered together in the name of peace and love with the people of Israel in the courtyards of the House of God as the sages of Israel and to fulfill the messianic vision of peace.
God blessed Abraham by saying, “They that will bless you will be blessed”. We pray that by blessing Israel today, we, in turn, will be blessed.
“This was the first step towards establishing a Biblically based United Nations,” Rabbi Weiss explained. “This necessarily has to be in Jerusalem, the city whose name means peace.”
In Hebrew, the word ‘shalom’, the root of the word Jerusalem, means ‘peace.’
Rabbi Weiss told Breaking Israel News, that representatives from several other nations have already contacted the Sanhedrin about the declaration.
Mordecai Persoff, head of the Mikdash Educational Center and one of the concert organizers, was pleased with the outcome of the event, noting that it accomplished far more than was apparent to the casual observer.
“The concert, as a social event, was successful but more importantly, the main purpose of it, to show the public that prophecy is coming to life, was enormously successful,” Persoff told Breaking Israel News. “When the Jews returned to Israel, when the state was established in 1948, when Jerusalem was unified in 1967, these were clearly miraculous manifestations of prophecy. But people are relating to these things as historical events with no prophetic meaning. That is because the real focus of the entire purpose is the reestablishment of the Temple as a House of Prayer for all Nations. Without this, it is possible to not see the prophetic connection. Last night, nations came together in Jerusalem to praise God, aligning with the Sanhedrin.”
Persoff cited the Talmud, which states that after the Sanhedrin was disbanded after the Temple was destroyed, music left the world.
“The world was created from the Temple Mount so when the Temple was destroyed, the world changed,” Persoff said. “By re-establishing the Sanhedrin, by bringing the nations into the effort to rebuild the Temple, we are engaging in a process that is recreating the world. Everybody who was at the concert, who listened to or saw the video, was witnessing actual prophecy coming to life.”
One group of Christians understood the prophetic implications of the concert and after reading about it in Breaking Israel News, decided to send representatives from their congregation, the Whole World Fellowship in Oakton Virginia, to attend. The concert was so clearly a prophetic “must-see” that the four representatives, Pastor Pitts Evans, Kurt Johnson, Yushik Seo, and Nancy Majette, flew in to Israel for 48-hours, solely to attend the World Creation Concert.
“I felt like the Lord was doing a new thing,” Pastor Evans told Breaking Israel News in a post-concert interview. “I knew I didn’t want to miss this coming into the world.”
“My language may be different than yours but about halfway through, when Rabbi Weiss spoke with the representatives of the nations, I began to sense the manifest presence of God,” Pastor Pitts said. “It ebbed and waned, but God’s presence was clearly there.”
“To me this was clearly a historic event,” Seo said. “It is the first of its kind, with the establishment of the Sanhedrin. The potential is enormous. It is impossible to say what will come, but whatever good God brings down to Israel, it spills over to the rest of the world.”
Seo cited several examples of historic periods when Christians became stronger in their faith that coincided with high-points of modern Israeli history.
“Israel is a key thing for us.”
Johnson agreed, quoting the Biblical verse that states that those who bless Israel will be blessed in return.
“We will always bless Israel because it is the right thing to do,” Johnson said. “That is what God and Jesus want us to do. The blessing we have received in return just confirms this to be true.”
“It is clear that we need the Sanhedrin to act as an interface between faith and politics in order to spread this blessing even further in the world,” Johnson said.
Pastor Keith Anderson from Texas attended the concert, but stayed longer than 48 hours so that he could visit his many friends in the Holy Land.
“I didn’t understand the Hebrew but I certainly felt it,” Pastor Anderson said. “I don’t think you choose to love Israel. God draws you to that. It is definitely a calling.”

WAKE UP CHURCH – Trump tells evangelicals they’ll lose ‘everything’ in ‘violent’ upheaval if GOP loses in November

President Donald Trump told a group of evangelical leaders that November’s midterm elections are a “referendum on your religion,” and that Republican losses could be extremely costly, according to a recording reviewed by NBC News.

Trump made the comments at a Monday night dinner at the White House after press had left the event, and the remarks were recorded by someone in attendance, according to CNN.

“It’s not a question of like or dislike, it’s a question that they will overturn everything that we’ve done and they will do it quickly and violently,” Trump said. “And violently. There is violence. The level of hatred, the level of anger is very unbelievable.”

Why did he say that?

Trump was imploring the evangelical audience to vote and campaign on behalf of Republican candidates leading into midterms, saying that if Democrats gain more influence in Congress they will reverse the progress that has been made.

“Part of it is because of some of the things I’ve done for you and for me and for my family, but I’ve done them,” Trump said. This Nov. 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it’s a referendum on your religion, it’s a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment.

“You’re one election away from losing everything that you’ve got,” Trump said.

‘Greatest leader for Christianity’

Trump repeated a comment he said was made by Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Dallas, that pushes back on some of the questions evangelical leaders face about supporting Trump in the face of alleged moral failings.

“I had the great Robert Jeffress back there,” Trump said. “Hello, Robert. Who said about me: He may not be the perfect human being, but he is the greatest leader for Christianity. Hopefully I’ve proven that to be a fact in terms of the second part. Not the first part.”

Trump earned 81 percent of the white evangelical vote in 2016, and according to the Boston Globe, had a 77 percent approval rating among evangelicals as of late July.

Drought Stones Pass Messages of Warning to Europeans

Hunger stones have been revealed in Europe

The recent unusually warm weather has resulted in a number of important archaeological sites being revealed as vegetation has died in Europe. The recent drought has also brought to the surface some fascinating archaeological discoveries that have long been hidden in rivers. In the Czech Republic, the low level of water in the River Elbe is revealing large engraved stones from the early modern period and earlier. These are hunger or drought stones that were carved in previous droughts and have now been revealed as the water level has fallen. They are allowing us an insight into how drought impact Europeans and how they responded to extreme weather.

History of Drought Stones

In the early modern and the medieval period, the population lived at a subsistence level and any problems with the harvest could lead to hunger or even outright famine. The harvest was dependent on the weather and events such as drought could have cataclysmic consequences. When the river level fell the population knew that there were hungry times ahead. Researchers have established – based on the study of tree rings – that Europe has experienced major droughts in the past few centuries.

During times experiencing this natural disaster, people inscribed warnings on the large stones that were exposed because of the falling water level in Central Europe. The idea behind these drought or hunger stones was that when they were exposed that this was ominous for any agrarian society.  According to the Daily Mail , the hunger or drought stones’ ‘appearances in history meant for people to get ready for troubles’. They are mainly found in ethnic German lands and are often regarded as a form of famine memorial. One of the last known instances of the practice occurred during the hungry years of 1816-1817.

The exposure of the stones

The recent high temperatures in Europe have been record-breaking. The River Elbe that rises in the Czech Republic is one of the great European Rivers. The persistent lack of rainfall means that the level of this river has fallen in a way not witnessed in decades.  Over a dozen drought or hunger stones have been exposed by the rapid fall in the water level. These are known in German as ‘Hungersteine’.

The Elbe drought stones can now be seen near the northern Czech town of Decin on the German border. One stone is considered to have one of the oldest watermarks in Europe, that ‘dates to 1616’, reports the Irish Examiner . It bears a chilling inscription, with ‘When you see me, cry’, according to the Daily Mail . It also bears the initials of those who chiseled the message and the years of famine dating back centuries. The last time that the stone was exposed was in 1918 during WWI, when Germany was experiencing famine-conditions.

The Tradition of Drought Stones

These stones are not unique and there have been other drought stones that have been located that date back to the fifteenth century. Most of the stones are from the fifteenth and seventeenth century, which are periods associated with droughts in Europe. They were first noted by researchers in the nineteenth century and one of the earliest documented references to a hunger stone was in 1876. The stones are usually striking stone formations such as features known as plates or boulders on the river bed. They all bear some message warning about hard times and the date that they were inscribed.

This drought stone at Decin has been cleaned and made accessible to the public. (Image: idecin)

One of the drought stones near Decin are something of a tourist attraction and many people visited during the recent high temperatures, as it is expected to be submerged for decades. The stones are showing us that people had a folk memory of environmental disasters and famines. They inscribed the stones to warn future generations and also as a way to commemorate the suffering of those who endured droughts and hunger in the past.

Netanyahu ignores Putin’s alignment with Tehran against a US-Israeli anti-Iran offensive Iran in Syria

Jerusalem finally responded on Tuesday, Aug. 28, to the signing of a new Iranian-Syrian military pact two days earlier in Damascus by the visiting Iranian Defense Minsiter Amir Hatami and Bashar Assad. After ignoring this development, which turned the military equation in Syria on its head, for two days, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu pledged that the IDF “will continue to act with all possible resolve against Iran’s efforts to transfer military strength and weapons systems into Syria.” He stressed that the struggle against Iran establishing a military presence in Syria was his main objective, “and it would be achieved, just like the cancellation of the Iranian nuclear deal, which, too, was judged an impossibility.”

As Land Confiscations Loom, South Africa Rules 300,000 Gun-Owners Turn Over Their Weapons

Authored by Jose Nino via GunPowderMagazine.com,

South Africa is opening the door for tyranny.

The Constitutional Court of South Africa recently ruled that 300,000 gun owners must turn in their firearms.

This judgement came in response to the North Gauteng High Court’s ruling in 2017 which said Section 24 and Section 28 of the Firearm’s Control Act were unconstitutional.

A report from The Citizen explains what Section 24 and Section 28 entail:

“Section 24 of the Act requires that any person who seeks to renew a licence must do so 90 days before its expiry date Section 28 stipulates that if a firearm licence has been cancelled‚ the firearm must be disposed of or forfeited to the state. A 60-day time frame was placed on its disposal, which was to be done through a dealer.”

Now that the High Court’s initial ruling has been overturned, gun owners who failed to renew their firearms licenses must hand in their firearms to the nearest police station, where authorities will then proceed to destroy them.

Many naïve political observers will paint this event as a casual gun control scheme, but any astute student of politics will recognize that the floodgates are now open for further encroachments – not only on the gun rights of South Africans, but also on others facets of theirs lives.

A look at South Africa’s current political climate will give us an idea of the potential ramifications of this gun control scheme.

Atlas Mugged: Elizabeth Warren’s Plan To Nationalize Corporations

Authored by Jeffrey Harding via An Independent Mind blog,

Current events have revealed that Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged is not just fiction, but almost a prophesy. Elizabeth Warren’s Accountable Capitalism Act and the cronyism of Trump’s tariff policies are straight out of Rand’s novel. It won’t end well.

Atlas Shrugged Mugged

Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged depicts a world where freedom and free markets are crushed by not-so-well-meaning politicians and bureaucrats. The story is a blueprint for the creation of a command economy where prices, wages, and production are dictated by bureaucratic apparatchiks. Like all regimes seeking autocratic power, the outcome, as she chillingly reveals, is cronyism, corruption, economic depression, and the rise of dictatorship.

The lesson of the book is that prosperity is driven by entrepreneurs and capital. And, you need freedom and free markets to achieve it. This system is called free market capitalism. Rand’s plot twist: what would happen if all the entrepreneurs, the drivers of a dynamic economy, went on strike. She takes the ideals of socialism, where business is dictated by government mandate “for the benefit of workers and the people”, to its logical, destructive end. The strike accelerates the collapse of society and the strikers re-emerge to rebuild society. It was a story that Rand knew well, being a Russian émigré fleeing Bolshevik terror.

Unfortunately, the book has become disturbingly prophetic.

One of the scenes in Rand’s book is the story of Twentieth Century Motors, a leading automobile manufacturer until the company was reorganized to be under control of the workers and operated for their benefit. Among other things, worker pay was not based on individual productivity but on “fairness” to accommodate workers’ needs. That “noble” idea drove the company into bankruptcy and failure. While this is fiction, history is awash with real world examples of this.

Enter Senator Elizabeth Warren and her proposed Accountable Capitalism Act. It is straight out of Atlas ShruggedShe proposes to regulate corporations with gross revenues of $1 billion or more, requiring them to obtain a federal corporate charter as a “United States corporation”. They would be regulated by a bureaucracy under the Office of United States Corporations. These corporations must be operated to “create a general public benefit” and must consider how its profit making activities affect not only their shareholders, but their employees, suppliers, “community and societal factors”, and the local and global environment. At least 40% of its board of directors must be elected by its workers. If they wish to support a political candidate, they must have approval of 75% of the board.

This is a proposed takeover of corporations by the government. It’s a power grab. It is the socialist path to hell. I say this based on the tenets, economics, and history of socialism.

The Parable of the Ten Minas

(Matthew 25:14-30)

11And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. 12He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. 14But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. 15And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 17And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 18And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities. 20And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin: 21For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. 22And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: 23Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury? 24And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds. 25(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.) 26For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him. 27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

(13) And delivered them ten pounds.–In this, again, we have a noticeable difference. Here we begin with equality; in Matthew 25:15 the servants start with unequal amounts, “according to their several ability.” So far as we lay stress on the difference, it implies that the trust in this case is that which all disciples of Christ have in common–viz., their knowledge of the truth and their membership in the Kingdom, and not the offices and positions that vary in degree. The pound, or mna, was, in Greek numismatics, not a coin, but a sum equal to the sixtieth part of a talent. The Greek name was probably derived from the Hebrew Maneh. According to another estimate it was equal to 25 shekels, or 100 drachm?? or denarii. The word meets us, as far as the New Testament is concerned, in this parable only.

Occupy till I come.–The better MSS. give, “while I am coming.” The Greek verb for “occupy” occurs in this passage only in the New Testament. A compound form of it is rendered, in Luke 19:15, by “gained in trading.” The English verb meets us in Ezekiel 27:9; Ezekiel 27:16; Ezekiel 27:21-22, in the sense of “trading,” in which it is used here. (See also the Prayer Book version of Psalm 107:23.)

Verse 13.And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. No doubt when our Lord spoke these parables he considerably enlarged the details, made many parts of the framework clearer than the short reports which we possess can possibly do. The meaning of the great noble’s action here is that he wished to test his servants – to try their various capabilities and dispositions, intending, when he should return from his long journey, having received his kingdom, to appoint them to high offices in the administration, to such positions, in fact, as their action in regard to the small deposit now entrusted to them should show themselves capable of filling. The Greek verb rendered “occupy” (πραγματεύσασθε) occurs here only in the New Testament: a compound form of it is rendered (ver. 15) by “gained by trading.”

And he called his ten servants,…. By whom are meant, not all mankind; for though these are all his servants of right, yet not in fact; nor the elect of God, who are called by grace; for though these are the servants of Christ, and are peculiarly his, yet all that received the pound were not such, for one of them was a wicked man; but the ministers of the Gospel, who are eminently, and in a special manner, the servants of the most high God: but as for the number “ten”, this cannot regard the apostles, for they were twelve; and though they are sometimes called the eleven, after the apostasy and death of Judas, yet not the ten; and besides, there was another chose in his room; but this number being a large and perfect one, a round number, it is sometimes made use of as a certain number, for an uncertain one; see Matthew 25:1. The call of these by their Lord, is not to be understood of the call of them by his grace, but of a call of them to the office and work of the ministry:

and delivered them ten pounds; every one a pound: the “Maneh”, or pound of the Hebrews, if of gold, which contained an hundred drachmas, was of the value of our money, “seventy five pounds”; if of silver, the old “Maneh”, or pound, which contained sixty shekels, Ezekiel 45:12 amounted to “seven pounds ten shillings”; but the “Maneh”, or pound, mentioned in the Misna (k), and which was in use in our Lord’s time, contained an hundred pence, and was of the value of our money, “three pounds two shillings and six pence”: and by these pounds are designed, not special grace; for they intend not any thing wrought in these servants, but something delivered to them, and what might be taken away again, which cannot be said of special grace; and besides, it is certain, that one of these servants that had the pound, was destitute of that: but gifts are meant, and these not merely natural, or the gifts of providence, as health, riches, wisdom, &c. nor only the outward means of grace, as the word and ordinances, but ministerial gifts, which are the greatest in the church, and are therefore signified by pounds; and are what may be improved or neglected, and be lost or taken away; and for which those that have them, are accountable: but though each of these servants are represented, as having every man a pound delivered to him, this must not be understood, as if the gifts of ministers were equal and alike, any more than the inequality of their rewards proves degrees in glory; for which sometimes this parable is produced:

and said unto him, occupy; negotiate, or trade, that is, with the pounds; make use of the ministerial gifts, exercise them, lay them out, and trade with them: the ministry is a trade and merchandise, to be carried on, not in the name of the ministers of Christ, nor on their own stock, nor for themselves, but for Christ, and for the good of souls; which shows, that they must not be slothful, but laborious and diligent:

till I:come: which suggests the certainty of Christ’s coming, the continuance of the Gospel ministry to that time; and that there is no rest nor ease for Christ’s ministers, but a continued series of labour and service, until then; when, for their encouragement, they shall receive their reward.

Do official government documents confirm Flat Earth and the Firmament?

PLS SUB THESE TWO MEN:  Rob Skiba & Pastor Dean Olde

 

This is not a direct mirror of Pastor Dean Odle’s original presentation(s). Rather it is a re-edit. I ( Rob Skiba – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoiIt_v1D-6z75LmrdIU2aw ) decided to re-edit the presentation he did on June 10, 2018, re-organizing the various documents he showed into chronological order. I also inserted a few clips from the follow-up presentation he did on June 17, 2018 into this one to drive a few points he was making a litter harder.
Below are the links to his original, unedited presentations:
