The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut



With more than 40 million people living and working in the central United States, a major earthquake could cause unprecedented disruption and devastation.   With earthquakes an inevitable part of our future, we must act quickly to ensure that disasters do not become catastrophes. 
What we do now, before a big earthquake, will determine what our lives will be like afterwards. 
The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut in April 2011 will involve more than 1 million people through a broad-based outreach program, partnership with the media, and public advocacy by hundreds of partners. This event is being organized by CUSEC and our Member States:  Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee.  The ShakeOut will be centered around a simultaneous drop, cover, and hold drill that will be held at 10:15 AM CDT on April 28, 2011.   The drill is designed to increase awareness and be a simple thing that can be done easily by many people.  A key aspect of the ShakeOut is the integration of comprehensive science-based earthquake research and the lessons learned from decades of social science research about why people get prepared.  The result is a “teachable moment” on par with having an actual earthquake (often followed by increased interest in getting ready for earthquakes).
The ShakeOut creates the sense of urgency that is needed for people, organizations, and communities to get prepared, to practice what to do to be safe, and to learn what plans need to be improved.  Not just any drill will accomplish this; it needs to be big.  It must inspire communities to come together.  It must involve children at school and parents at work, prompting conversations at home. It must allow every organization, city, etc., to make it their own event.
The 2011 ShakeOut drill will be the largest earthquake preparedness event in central U.S. history. Soon, a website detailing ShakeOut drill procedures, registration, and promotion, will be ready at www.ShakeOut.org/centralus. At this website, you will be able to pledge your family, school, business, or organization’s participation in the drill. Registered participants will receive information on how to plan their drill and how to create a dialogue with others about earthquake preparedness. All organizers ask is that participants register (so the can be counted and receive communications), and at the minimum practice "drop, cover, and hold on" at the specified time.
It is only a five minute commitment for something that can save your life. It all begins with registering, which is free and open to everyone.

Speech Geert Wilders New York, Four Seasons




Thank you very much for inviting me. And – to the immigration authorities – thank you for letting me into this country. It is always a pleasure to cross a border without being sent back on the first plane. Today, the dearest of our many freedoms is under attack all throughout Europe. Free speech is no longer a given. What we once considered a natural element of our existence, our birth right, is now something we once again have to battle for.
As you might know, I will be prosecuted, because of my film Fitna, my remarks regarding Islam, and my view concerning what some call a ‘religion of peace’. A few years from now, I might be a criminal.

Whether or not I end up in jail is not the most pressing issue; I gave up my freedom four years ago. I am under full-time police protection ever since. The real question is: will free speech be put behind bars? And the larger question for the West is: will we leave Europe’s children the values of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem, or the values of Mecca, Teheran and Gaza?

This is what video blogger Pat Condell said in one of his latest you tube appearances. He says: “If I talked about Muslims the way their holy book talks about me, I’d be arrested for hate speech.” Now, Mr Condell is a stand-up comedian, but in the video he is dead serious and the joke is on us. Hate speech will always be used against the people defending the West – in order to please and appease Muslims. They can say whatever they want: throw gays from apartment buildings, kill the Jews, slaughter the infidel, destroy Israel, jihad against the West. Whatever their book tells them.

Today, I come before you to warn of a great threat. It is called Islam. It poses as a religion, but its goals are very worldly: world domination, holy war, sharia law, the end of the separation of church and state, slavery of women, the end of democracy. It is NOT a religion, it is  an political ideology. It demands your respect, but has no respect for you.

There might be moderate Muslims, but there is no moderate Islam. Islam will never change, because it is built on two rocks that are forever, two fundamental beliefs that will never change, and will never alter. First, there is the Quran, Allah’s personal word, uncreated, forever, with orders that need to be fulfilled regardless of place or time. And second, there is al-insal al-kamil, the perfect man, Muhammad the role model, whose deeds are to be imitated by all Muslims. And since Muhammad was a warlord and a conqueror we know what to expect. Islam means submission, so there cannot be any mistake about it’s goal. That’s a given. It’s fact.

This is Europe 2009. Muslim settlers calling for our destruction, and free speech on trial. All this is the outcome of a sick and evil ideology, the ideology that is weakening us, the surrender ideology of cultural relativism. It believes that all cultures are equal, and therefore Islam deserves an equal place in the West. It is their duty, the left thinks, to facilitate Islam. This way the cultural relativists paradise comes within reach and we will all be happy, and sing kumbaya.

The forces of Islam couldn’t agree more. Islam being facilitated by government is their agenda too. But they see it as jizya, the money dhimmis pay in order not to be killed or raped by their Muslim masters. Therefore, they happily accept the welfare cheque or the subsidies for their mosque or the money governments donate to their organizations.
This is just one example of cultural relativists and Muslim settlers having the same agenda. There is another. Islam considers itself a religion and therefore we are not permitted to criticize it. The left agrees. Although it hated Christianity for decades, now that Islam appears on the scene, they suddenly change course and demand ‘respect’ for something they call a religion.

Again we see the left and Islam having the same agenda: it is a religion, so shut up.

This all culminates in a third coming-together: nor the left nor Islam is in favor of criticism. In fact, given the opportunity, they would simply outlaw it. Multiculturalism is the left’s pet project. It is actually their religion. Their love of it is so great, if you oppose it, it must be hate. And if you say it, it is labeled hate speech. Now here is something the Islam can agree on.

This is the essence of my short introduction today: where the left and Islam come together, freedom will suffer.

My friends, make no mistake, my prosecution is a full-fledged attack by  the left on freedom of speech in order to please Muslims. It was started by a member of the Dutch Labour party, and the entire legal proceeding is done by well-to-do liberals, the radical chic of Dutch society, the snobbish left. Too much money, too much time, too little love of liberty. If you read what the court of Amsterdam has written about me, you read the same texts that cultural relativists produce.

How low can we go in the Netherlands? About my prosecution, The Wall Street Journal noted: “this is no small victory for Islamic regimes seeking to export their censorship laws to wherever Muslims reside”. The Journal concluded that by The Netherlands accepting the free speech standards of, “Saudi-Arabia”, I stand correct in my observation that - I quote - “Muslim immigration is eroding traditional Dutch liberties”.

Now, if the Wall Street Journal has the moral clarity to see that my prosecution is the logical outcome of our disastrous, self-hating, multiculturalists immigration policies, then why can’t the European liberal establishment see the same thing? Why aren’t they getting at least a little bit scared by the latest news out of, for example, the UK. News that tells that the Muslim population in Britain is growing ten times as fast as the rest of society. Why don’t they care?
The answer is: they don’t care because they are blinded by their cultural relativism. Their disdain of the West is so much greater than the appreciation of our many liberties. And therefore, they are willing to sacrifice everything. The left once stood for women rights, gay rights, equality, democracy. Now, they favour immigration policies that will end all this. Many even lost their decency. Elite politicians have no problem to participate in or finance demonstrations where settlers shout “Death to the Jews”. Seventy years after Auschwitz they know of no shame.

Two weeks ago, I tried to get into Britain, a fellow EU country. I was invited to give a speech in Parliament. However, upon arrival at London airport, I was refused entry into the UK, and sent back on the first plane to Holland.  I would have loved to have reminded the audience of a great man who once spoke in the House of Commons. In 1982 President Reagan gave a speech there very few people liked. Reagan called upon the West to reject communism and defend freedom. He introduced a phrase: ‘evil empire’. Reagan’s speech stands out as a clarion call to preserve our liberties. I quote: If history teaches anything, it teaches self-delusion in the face of unpleasant facts is folly. What Reagan meant is that you cannot run away from history, you cannot escape the dangers of ideologies that are out to destroy you. Denial is no option.

So, what should we do? Is this a good moment for freedom-loving people to give in or to change course? To all-of-a-sudden start singing praise of Islam, or proclaiming there is such a thing as a moderate Islam? Will we now accept the continuation of Muslim mass immigration to the West? Will we appease sharia and jihad?  Or democracy? Should we sell out Israel, our dearest ally, and a frontline state of Islam?

Well, my humble opinion is: No way, Jose!

I suggest to defend freedom in general and freedom of speech in particular. I propose the withdrawal of all hate speech legislation in Europe. I propose a European First Amendment. In Europe we should defend freedom of speech like you Americans do. In Europe freedom of speech should be extended, instead of restricted. Of course, calling for violence or unjustly yelling “fire” in a crowded theatre have to be punished, but the right to criticize ideologies or religions are necessary conditions for a vital democracry. As George Orwell once said: “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear”.
Let us defend freedom of speech and let us gain strength and work hard to become even stronger. Millions think just like you and me. Millions think liberty is precious. That democracy is better than sharia. And after all, why should we be afraid? Our many freedoms and our prosperity are the result of centuries of endeavour. Centuries of hard work and sacrifice. We do not stand alone, and we stand on the shoulders of giants.

Late December 1944 the American army was suddenly faced with a last-ditch effort by the Germans. In the Ardennes, in the Battle of the Bulge, Hitler and his national-socialists fought for their last chance. And they were very successful. Americans faced defeat, and death.

In the darkest of winter, in the freezing cold, in a lonely forest with snow and ice as even fiercer enemies than the Nazi war machine itself, the American army was told to surrender. That might be their only chance to survive. But General McAuliffe thought otherwise. He gave the Germans a short message. This message contained just four letters. Four letters only, but never in the history of freedom was a desire for liberty and perseverance in the face of evil expressed more eloquently than in that message. It spelled N – U – T – S. “Nuts”.

My friends, the national-socialists got the message. Because it left no room for interpretation!

I suggest we walk in the tradition of giants like General McAuliffe and the American soldiers who fought and died for the freedom of my country and for a secular and democratic Europe, and we tell the enemies of freedom just that. NUTS! Because that’s all there is to it. No explanations. No beating around  the bush. No caveats.

Our enemies should know: we will never apologize for being free men, we will never bow for the combined forces of Mecca and the left. And we will never surrender. We stand on the shoulders of giants. There is no stronger power than the force of free men fighting for the great cause of liberty. Because freedom is the birthright of all man.

Stagflation 2011: Why It Is Here And Why It Is Going To Be Very Painful


Are you ready for an economy that has high inflation and high unemployment at the same time? Well, welcome to "Stagflation 2011".  Stagflation exists when inflation and unemployment are both at high levels at the same time.  Of course we all know about the high unemployment situation already.  Gallup's daily tracking poll says that the U.S. unemployment rate has been hovering around 10 percent all year so far.  But now thanks to rapidly rising food prices and the exploding price of oil, rampant inflation is being added to the equation.  Normally inflation is a sign of increased economic activity, but when the basic commodities that we depend on to run our economy (such as oil) go up in price it actually causes a slowdown in economy activity.  When the price of oil goes up high enough, it fundamentally changes the behavior of individuals and businesses.  Suddenly certain types of economic activities that were feasible when oil was very cheap are not profitable any longer.  When the price of oil rises to a new level and it stays there, essentially what is happening is that more "blood" is being drained out of our economy.  Our economy will continue to function when there are higher oil prices, it will just be a lot more sluggish.
In some way, shape or form the price of oil factors into the production of most of our goods and services and it also factors into the transportation of most of our goods and services.  A significant rise in the price of oil changes the economic equation for almost every business in the United States.
Today, the price of WTI crude soared past 100 dollars a barrel before closing at $98.10.  The price of Brent crude increased 5.3 percent to $111.25.  The protests in Libya are certainly causing a lot of the price activity that we have seen over the past few days, but the truth is that oil has been going up for a number of months.  Right now we are only seeing an acceleration of the long-term trend.
Things are likely to get far worse if the "day of rage" planned for Saudi Arabia next month turns into a full-blown revolution.  Up to this point, the revolutions that have been sweeping the Middle East have been organized largely on Facebook, and now there are calls all over Facebook for the "Saudi revolution"to start on March 20th.
That date is less than 4 weeks away.  If Saudi Arabia plunges into chaos, the price of oil is going to go through the roof.
A rapidly rising price for oil is really bad news for the U.S. economy, because it is going to mean lots of inflation.  Unfortunately, this also comes at a time when the economy is also feeling the inflationary effects of more quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve.
So if rising oil prices are going to cause more inflation and if rising oil prices are also going to cause our economy to become even more sluggish, what does all of that add up to?
It adds up to stagflation.
Wikipedia defines stagflation in the following manner....
In economics, stagflation is the situation when both the inflation rate and the unemployment rate are persistently high.
This is going to rapidly become the "new normal" for America.  High oil prices are going to cause the cost of just about everything to go up, and high oil prices are also going to cause the economy to slow down thus making the unemployment numbers even worse.
It is going to be just like the 1970s all over again.
Only worse.
Economists differ as to how much rising oil prices affect U.S. GDP, but almost all of them agree that rising oil prices do cause a decline in U.S. GDP at least to some extent.
If American families have to spend $10 or $20 more each time they visit a gas station, that means that they are going to have less discretionary income.  They won't be able to spend as much at the stores.
Not only that, but since the price of oil affects the price of almost everything else, Americans will find that their dollars have reduced purchasing power.
An oil crisis would force American families to stretch their already overburdened budgets even farther.
So where is the price of gasoline going from here?  Well, the average price of gasoline in the United States is rapidly sneaking up on the $3.20 a gallon mark.  Almost everyone believes that it is going to be going significantly higher.
Tom Kloza, the chief analyst for the Oil Price Information Service, was recently quoted in USA Today as saying that he believes that the average price for gasoline in the United States will reach somewhere between $3.50 and $3.75 a gallon by April.
As I wrote about yesterday, there are other analysts that believe that we are going to see $4.00 gasoline in the United States by the end of the year, and there are some that believe that we could see $5.00 gasoline if revolution sweeps Saudi Arabia.
If gasoline becomes that expensive and it stays there for a while, it is going to seriously start affecting the behavior of American businesses and American consumers.
Just remember what happened back in 2008.  Andrew Busch of BMO Capital Markets recently told CNBC the following....
"Remember when oil was last at $140 (a barrel), Americans reacted and cut the amount of miles they drove."
Can you imagine what it would do to the economy if millions of Americans start sitting in their homes instead of doing their normal amounts of driving and flying?
In addition, one of the biggest problems with a higher price for oil is that it would cause our trade deficit to explode.  According to the U.S. government,more than half of the oil that we use is imported.  So every month we send the rest of the world billions and billions of our dollars and they send us massive amounts of oil.  We rapidly consume all of the oil they send us and we continually need more.  So we keep sending larger and larger amounts of money overseas and they keep sending us larger amounts of oil.  In the process, our national wealth is being drained at an astounding rate.  It is one of the greatest transfers of wealth the world has ever seen.
When the price of oil rises substantially, the transfer of wealth accelerates.  This is a very bad thing for the U.S. economy.  For example, when oil prices were above $100 a barrel back in 2008 our trade deficit for the year was almost 700 billion dollars.
It would be great if the Middle East would settle down and oil prices would start declining because that would really help out the U.S. economy.  Unfortunately, it does not look like that is going to happen.  Instead, it appears that we are steamrolling directly towards stagflation.  Anyone that lived through the stagflation of the 1970s knows that it is not a lot of fun.
The cold, hard reality of the matter is that without cheap oil our lifestyles are going to change.  Our economy was not set up to run on expensive oil.  If oil moves well above $100 a barrel and it stays there it is going to bring about significant societal changes.
For the rest of 2011, the price of oil will be the number one economic indicator to watch.  If it gets too high it is going to be an absolute disaster for the U.S. economy.

Shaking Christ’s Church


I THINK THIS IS WORTH TO READ...


Joseph Herrin (02-23-2011)

Hebrews 12:26-27
"Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven."  Now
this, "Yet once more," indicates the removal of those things that are
being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot
be shaken may remain.

Yesterday, February 22, 2011, a major earthquake struck Christchurch,
New Zealand. The damage and loss of life far exceeded the 7.0
magnitude quake that struck the city five months earlier.
Significantly, many churches that had survived the previous earthquake
with limited damage were destroyed, or damaged beyond repair in
yesterday’s temblor.

You may want to review the posts on the 2010 earthquake as an
accompaniment to this article.

http://parablesblog.blogspot.com/2010/09/judgment-has-begun.html
http://parablesblog.blogspot.com/2010/09/christchurch-update.html

I want to repeat a short portion of the first post on the 2010
Christchurch earthquake. I cited a prophetic word by Phil Buck that
was delivered shortly after the Haiti quake, and nine months before
the one in New Zealand.

EARTHQUAKE in THE CHURCH - a Word
-by Phil Buck.

January 27, 2010 - Prayer time for the Church, at our home.

I heard a word in my mind saying, There’s coming an earthquake of the
magnitude 7.0 that was experienced in Haiti, only it is coming to the
Church. I have sent many warnings down through the portals of time,
that this day was coming, and now is here, even at the door. The
earthquake will start from outside the Church, and then will permeate
the Church from within. Prepare, prepare, there will be destruction as
would never have been imagined.

The rubble of the buildings of man will crumble to the ground. The
teachings of man will have come full circle. There will be people that
have bought into the man system and will be destroyed in the rubble of
the collapse, some spiritually and others both spiritually and
physically. For they have believed a lie and will suffer the
consequences of their doing.
[End Excerpt]

Consider the ways in which this prophetic word parallel the events in
Christchurch. The 2010 earthquake was centered 40 km outside of the
city. The prophetic word declared “the earthquake will start outside
the church.” Yesterday’s earthquake was centered 10 km outside the
city and was also much closer to the surface, making its impact much
more severe.

During the September 2010 earthquake, not a single person’s life was
lost, and although 2300 homes were condemned, and numerous buildings
damaged, the absence of more dire consequences was hailed as extremely
unusual. Some who have faith in God attributed the absence of more
grievous consequences to His grace. It has been five months since the
September quake. Five is the Biblical number for grace.

The prophetic word said “Prepare! Prepare!” In what ways are the
people of God to prepare for the shaking that is at hand? The
prophetic word specifically mentioned two areas that would be tested
in this shaking; the teachings (doctrines), and the works of the
church.

Yahweh will judge the teachings and the works of His people. Those who
have embraced error will suffer loss due to their having built upon
the teachings of man, rather than the truths of God.

In considering this matter, I have been led to reflect upon the
Spirit’s guidance in my life beginning back in 1999. At that time,
Yahweh impressed upon me the necessity to surrender the direction of
my life into His hands. Up until this time I had been raised up in the
churches. I had a sincere devotion to God, and was judged to be more
dedicated to the Father than most. Yet, my life was one of
contradiction. I called Christ “Lord,” but most of my life’s decisions
were decided by my soul. I was doing many things of my own initiative,
often presenting to God a sacrifice of my choosing rather than the
obedience He required.

The Father spoke to me at the time, revealing that He could take me no
further apart from a complete surrender to go where He directed me to
go, and a willingness to obey whatever He required of me. My soul was
terrified of what I might encounter if I gave my life into the
Father’s hands. I knew there would be a cross appointed to me, and I
did not like the thought of suffering.

The Spirit persisted by indicating to me that I would actually begin
to lose what I had previously gained, and I would forfeit the good
things God had planned for my life, if I did not accept the call to
“take up my cross and follow Christ.”

The church today has heaped up to themselves teachers to tell them
what the soul of man wants to hear. The doctrines of the church permit
men to remain in control of their own lives, rather than surrendering
all they are and all they possess unto God.

The recent teaching series I have posted on the Law provides one
example of how the teachings of the church have deviated from the
message of Christ and His apostles. The church would prefer to adopt a
body of laws to guide them, than to yield the control of their lives
to the Spirit. By adopting a code of conduct, the church retains
control of the major portion of their life’s decisions. Consequently,
men can make a good showing in the flesh while avoiding the cross God
has appointed to every disciple of Christ.

How does a person prepare for God’s shaking? They invite the Father to
reveal to them the quality of the foundation they have been building
upon. They entreat the Father to reveal the deficiencies in their
doctrines and works. When God points out an area that is false, they
must tear down that which is defective and begin to build anew
according to the plan of the Father.

In my own life, this process included great changes both in my
teachings and in my circumstances. Those who are unwilling to have
their present lives interrupted, their current manner of existence
radically altered, will find themselves clinging futilely to that
which cannot stand.

After the Christchurch earthquake last year, the prevailing response
of the churches was to re-build that which had fallen using the same
pattern as before. There was no consideration of abandoning an unsafe
design. Most of the danger lay in the great towers and soaring
cathedral ceilings of the buildings. The pride of man would not permit
consideration of a more lowly, and humble, yet practical and safe
building design. The cry throughout the city was to re-build what was
shaken and make it stronger than before. It did not matter to men that
God had not initiated these proud works. It did, however matter to
God.

Among the largest and proudest church buildings in Christchurch are
those constructed by the Roman Catholic diocese. The mother church of
the Roman Catholic diocese is Christchurch Basilica, also called the
Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. The towers of the Basilica had
been damaged last year in the main earthquake and its aftershocks,
especially the one that occurred on Boxing Day.

The inside of the Cathedral was closed off to public use until repairs
could be made. At the beginning of this month, a contract was signed
to commence repair work on the towers that were damaged from the
earlier quake. The assessment at the beginning of this month was that
“they are definitely fixable.”

Christchurch Basilica After Yesterday’s Earthquake

Preliminary reports indicate that the Basilica cannot be repaired.

The two bell towers at the front of the building collapsed, bringing
much of the front fa├žade down with them, with large blocks of masonry
destroying vehicles in front of the building. There was also major
cracking evident around the cathedral's main dome. Stained glass
windows, which had survived the September 4 earthquake and some 4,000
aftershocks, were also "in ruins."

It is not just the Catholic Church that God is judging. He is judging
ALL His people. Perhaps the grandest building in town, and most
prominent landmark was the Anglican Church’s Cathedral.


Anglican Cathedral Before and After Earthquake 2-22-2011

Those familiar with the teachings on this blog know that the number 22
denotes flesh cutting, and judgment on wickedness. The date of this
recent, destructive earthquake, as written in New Zealand’s format, is
22-2-2011.

The year 2011 is defined by the number 11. According to E.W. Bullinger
in the book Number in Scripture, 11 bears the following significance.


If ten is the number which marks the perfection of Divine order, then
eleven is an addition to it, subversive of and undoing that order. If
twelve is the number which marks the perfection of Divine government,
then eleven falls short of it. So that whether we regard it as being
10 + 1, or 12 - 1, it is the number which marks, disorder,
disorganization, imperfection, and disintegration.
[Source: 
http://philologos.org/__eb-nis/eleven.htm]

Did Yahweh appoint the shaking of Christchurch to occur on this
specific date to reveal something through the date? I believe He did.
God is signifying that a double portion of judgment upon the flesh and
wickedness of the body of Christ is at hand. The immediate result will
be disorder, disorganization, imperfection, and disintegration. In
truth, this is already the spiritual condition of the church.

The church lacks God’s order and organization. Christ is to be Head of
the body. He is to guide and direct His people. Instead, the church
has raised men to this position, while looking to the soul of man to
guide and direct. The church is imperfect. Christ said, “If you would
be perfect... take up your cross and follow Me.” This the church has
refused to do. Dis-integration, a lack of oneness among the body, and
an absence of union with God, are the result of these things.

We are entering a time when the world will experience a tremendous
shaking. This shaking in the world economies, governments, and social
structures will serve to expose the apostate condition of the church.
Many who have embraced doctrines of prosperity, ease and comfort will
experience a shattering of their lives as the world economy begins to
shake violently. The affluent lives of millions will be turned to
poverty with great suddenness. Those who have equated worldly blessing
with spiritual success will find that they have erred greatly.

Such errors are not the domain of one particular church or
denomination. They are nearly universal. Yahweh will expose the
defects in His church, exposing every work of man. All that the heart
of man has devised will not stand.

Knox Church - Presbyterian - Before and After


Oxford Street Baptist Church After Quake


Unidentified Church - Destroyed by Quake

People of God, it is evident that the world has been going through
upheavals in the past few years, particularly beginning with the
financial crisis of 2008. Here in America, millions are now
unemployed. Millions have lost their homes to foreclosure. Many lives
are in upheaval.

The response of most, in and out of the church, has been to try to
hold things together as long as possible. Few have been willing to
make true, foundational changes in their lives. How then will they be
ready for the much more intense shaking that the Spirit is indicating
is near at hand?

One website reported that on Saturday February 19, just 3 days before
this most recent quake, Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker held a summit
meeting of all the parties involved in the recovery operation from the
2010 quake. They were laying out plans to restore the city to its
former glory.

Article Link

Those who met had no idea that a far greater destruction would be
visited upon their city in just a few short days. God has provided
this spectacular sign to warn His people that upheaval is coming. He
knows that most of the doctrines and works of the church are wood, hay
and stubble. They will not stand. The faith of multitudes will
collapse, for they have not the strength to stand. Multitudes will
experience great loss in both spiritual and natural realms. This loss
could have been mitigated, and perhaps it still might if people will
surrender immediately to be led of the Spirit.

An End of Playing Games

The attitude here in America is characterized by the events of
Christchurch. The Mayor and citizens of Christchurch have been
applying themselves to getting the city back in order from last year’s
quake. Part of their motive is that Christchurch was slated to host
seven games for the Rugby World Cup in 2011.


The church has sought to shrug off the economic disturbances of the
past couple years as quickly as possible that she might also return to
a pursuit of fun and games. They do not see the judgment at their very
doorstep.

I Peter 4:17
For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God...

The Spirit has been testifying that it is time for all saints to get
their houses in order. Those who do not will certainly suffer loss.

China uses whistles, water, police on protests







HANGHAI (AP) - Large numbers of police—and new tactics like shrill whistles and street cleaning trucks—squelched overt protests in China for a second Sunday in a row after more calls for peaceful gatherings modeled on recent democratic movements in the Middle East.
Near Shanghai's People's Square, uniformed police blew whistles nonstop and shouted at people to keep moving, though about 200 people—a combination of onlookers and quiet sympathizers who formed a larger crowd than a week ago—braved the shrill noise. In Beijing, trucks normally used to water the streets drove repeatedly up the busy commercial shopping district spraying water and keeping crowds pressed to the edges.


Foreign journalists met with tighter police controls. In Shanghai, authorities called foreign reporters Sunday indirectly warning them to stay away from the protest sites, while police in Beijing followed some reporters and blocked those with cameras from entering the Wangfujing shopping street where protests were called. Plainclothes police struck a Bloomberg News television reporter, who was then taken away for questioning.


Police also detained several Chinese, at least two in Beijing and four in Shanghai, putting them into vans and driving them away, though it was not clear if they had tried to protest.
While it isn't clear how many people—if any at all—came to protest, the outsized response compared with last week shows how the mysterious calls for protest have left the authoritarian government on edge. Unlike Egypt and Tunisia where popular frustrations with economic malaise added fuel to popular protests to oust autocratic leaders, China has a booming economy and rising living standards. Still, the leadership is battling inflation and worries that democratic movements could take root if unchallenged.


"Rapid inflation affects people's livelihoods and may affect social stability,"Premier Wen Jiabao said in an online chat Sunday. While he did not mention the Middle East, he later added: "I know the impact that prices can cause a country and am deeply aware of its extreme importance."


Online posts of unknown origin that first circulated on an overseas Chinese news website 10 days ago have called for Chinese to gather peacefully at sites every Sunday in a show of people power meant to promote fairness and democracy. A renewed call this week expanded the target cities to 27, from 13.


People reached by phone at businesses in the cities of Tianjin, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Shenyang and Harbin said no demonstrations occurred.
Beyond the several Web postings, the calls lack a clear leader or organization and a well-defined agenda—ingredients experts say are crucial to the success of protest movements. China's extensive Internet filtering and monitoring mean that most Chinese are unaware of the appeals, effectively limiting the audience.


Police have questioned, placed under house arrest and detained more than 100 people, according to rights groups. At least five have been detained on subversion or national security charges, in some cases for passing on information about the protest calls.
Pressure to tamp down protest is higher in Beijing. Senior politicians from around the country converge on the capital this week for the legislature's annual session and a simultaneous meeting of a top advisory body—events that always bring high security.


Police seemed to outnumber pedestrians at Wangfujing. Groups of men with earpieces crowded the seats near the window of a KFC outlet scanning the street outside.


After blocking entrance to Wangfujing, police took away foreign news photographers, camera crews and reporters from The Associated Press, the BBC, Voice of America, German state broadcasters ARD and ZDF, and others. They were taken to an office where they were told special permission was needed to report from Wangfujing. In doing so, the government appears to be extending a ban on reporting at Tiananmen Square and reinterpreting more relaxed rules put in place ahead of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

UN concern over 'military angle to Iran nuclear plan

The UN's nuclear watchdog says it has received new information on "possible military dimensions" to Iran's nuclear development programme.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said the report raised "further concerns" about Iran's activities.
It urged Tehran to co-operate fully with its investigations in alleged weapons experiments, saying it had not done since 2008.
Iran insists its nuclear programme is entirely peaceful.
The IAEA report was obtained by the BBC and made available online by the Institute for Science and International Security (Isis).
It says Iran is "not implementing a number of its obligations including clarification of the remaining outstanding issues which give rise to concerns about possible military dimensions to its nuclear programme".
The country was also "not providing the necessary co-operation to enable the Agency to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran, and therefore to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities".
"Based on the agency's analysis of additional information since August 2008, including new information recently received, there are further concerns which the agency also needs to clarify with Iran," says the report.
Among those concerns were that Iran was not engaging with the IAEA on allegations that it was developing a nuclear payload for its missiles.
Six world powers are negotiating with Iran over its nuclear programme, and the country is subject to United Nations Security Council sanctions over its refusal to halt uranium enrichment.
Enriched uranium can be used for civilian nuclear purposes, but also to build atomic bombs.
The UN has imposed four sets of sanctions on Iran over the years.
While these have made it more difficult for Iran to acquire equipment, technology and finance to support its nuclear activities, they have not stopped trading in oil and gas - the major sources of Iran's income.
