When I started this blog in August, I told you that I would write about any future natural disasters when they unfold.  However, this time and with Superstorm Sandy, I am finding it very difficult to even think about the mass destruction of homes, entire towns and neighborhoods, and emotions from this storm.  Aeriel  footage of this destruction is pouring in and it is very unsettling, if not totally haunting.  This collection of footage is sure to wake up our sense of caution and urgency for future events that are sure to take place, more frequently and more powerful.  Evacuation will finally become a human instinct and need.  

 In August1992, Hurricane Andrew was truly devastating, but the focus was on how entire neighborhoods and the town of Homestead, Florida was destroyed.  Focus of the loss of life ran high as well.  But it was Hurricane Katrina that first showed us how vulnerable our infrastructure really is.  Superstorm Sandy simply showed us that we have no choice but to concentrate on our infrastructures immediately.  Sandy also serves as a precursor of what we will expect in the future, and also serves as a testament that Climate Change is a real thing and can no longer be ignored. 

 I was in New Jersey three weeks ago. I grew up in Somerset County, New Jersey, went off to College in Central Pennsylvania, lived outside of Philadelphia for four years after that, and even spent many days at the Jersey Shore. So you might imagine how many friends and family I have up there.  I am worried about all of them, and I am worried about the many victims I do not even know. 

 In August, you may remember me talking about my knowledge and study in environmental science.  My instinct about natural disasters becoming more frequent and more devastating is exactly the reason why I built this project:  the Album "Kowbelle--Our Red Cross", and why my main focus in life is to raise awareness and funding for that organization.  That is why I am also a volunteer.  

 This storm is of epic proportions, and I can only take so much of these disturbing images before I have to just turn off the TV.  I think much of America is upset and nervous about what might come next.  

 At this point, I would like to stress to all of you who have not been affected by this storm, to realize that you are strong, and not weakened by this, and have the ability to give time or money to any one of our great Relief Organizations.  Whether it is the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, United Way of any other national of local organization, now is the time.  There are so many people who are suffering, who need help, and who desperately need hope if that is at all possible. 

 It is very hard, after a storm like Sandy, to expect some to even be hopeful, but it is extremely important to help try to restore some hope, and for all of us as a national community to come together to help overcome the worst storm ever to affect our country.

I read you thing of the pass. But it's the future I'm worried about. Read Revelation chapter 17 and 18. Where it talks about Mystery Babylon. Then put the United States in mind when you read it. First look at the Statue of Liberty, pull it up on Google earth. Notice at the bottom there are 7 points. The statue is a lady. She sits on 7 mountains. There are 6 mountain ranges in the lower 48 states that are near the coast, and 1 in the middle the Ozarks. Chapter 17 and verse 9.
Then in chapter 17 verse 15. It says. And he saith unto me, "The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues."
I ask you where do you find this any where else in the world. Peoples, Multitudes, Nations and Tougues. Right here in America are a nation of many different kinds of people.
The mystery Babylon means, It wasn't discovered yet when this was written. America was not discovered until 1492. And in just over 500 years we became a empire from nothing.
Chapter 17 verse 18. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Where is the United Nations located? New York City! It's a great city and reigneth over the kings of the earth.
We the United States are like unto a city. We are connected together with roads, railroad, internet, phones all kinds of communications. I drove a truck for 27 years and after a while driving a truck. The United States is like a large city. I could go to place to place and never touch dirt. It was all paved from point A to point B.
Could it be? The United States is that Mystery Babylon. In one hour we see our destruction as it says in Chapter 18. Are we the paper tiger the Chinese called us a few years back? What is scary is the pentigon computer chips are made in China. It would take much effort from some of the computer whiz people. To hack into the pentigon and show things are going just fine.
While the people are thinking things are going just fine. The United States has been hacked. At the same time here comes thousands of Nuclear War Heads headed for every major city in the U.S.A.
Before we could even react, we will be destroyed. Talking about a fulfillment of the bible wow.
Then the rest of the world, would see our destruction. They would say, "Look we just destroyed a whole nation of peoples. Let us take away all borders and become a one world order."
All nations will gladly do this after the destruction of the United States except one. Isreal!!! Isreal would no longer have the United States to turn to for help. They in turn would be force to sign the 7 year peace tready.
In fact, I am sure the Mystery Babylon is modern day America. Get ready for it and stay prayed up. It shall come in the dead of night. It shall be in the winter. It will only take one hour.
The explosions will be so great it will crack the earth crust. There opening the door for the mighty earthquakes that are to come. The destruction will be so great that it will start the earth on a jorney toward the sun.
2nd Peter chapter 3 tells us this. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat. the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
This is the time period of the Great Tribulation. It tells us this in Malachi Chapter 4 verse 1. For behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that is shall leave them neither root nor branch.
I will stop right there but this is just the tip of the ice burg that is coming to us. Get ready it is upon us.
