Well, it’s Spring today. We still have 3 feet of snow, it was 7 degrees and wind blowing when I got up at 4am. Didn’t I just say it’s spring today? I love Wisconsin. Continue reading
Awesome Grace, God’s Grace. Unmerited favor from God, we don’t deserve it, can’t earn it, it’s not for sale. God freely gives it if we’re not too proud to take it up. No amount of intellectual reasoning can achieve it. God freely gives it, by His Spirit, still alive and working today as it was in the time of the Apostles. Good job, Ben.
Originally posted on Footsteps In The Deep:
Lately, the topic of “grace” has been on my heart. It’s such a powerful word, and yet most of us don’t even have any idea about what it means. We read it in the Bible all the time (“Grace and peace to you…”) and use it even in our everyday lives (“Just give me a little grace this time…”). It’s almost like we’ve gotten so familiar with it that we forgot what it means, like when you repeat a word over and over and over again so that it eventually loses all meaning.
Grace. It changes everything.
Just take a look at what grace does according to Ephesians 2:4-9. It reads, “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us…

What a bumpy second month of the year. What got off as a relatively quiet start got pretty rocky in the second month. Earthquakes, political, religious and meteoric events happening all at once, or at least over the next month and a half.
Today we’re supposed to have a close flyby of an asteroid. It’ll be close, but no cigar. No Apocalyptic dash into the ocean as depicted in Revelation 8:10-11, we’re safe. But wait! This morning a meteorite crashed over Russia in an affect like the movie “Deep Impact” roaring across with sonic booms blowing out windows and collapsing buildings. And some fragments fell in the reservoir like the campy Asylum Films movie, ” Apocalypse” where the water got poisoned. Hmm, better check the water. Could the asteroid take a left turn? Continue reading
This morning the Solomon Islands were rocked again, this time with a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. What’s an aftershock and an earthquake is getting kind of blurry right now with repeated 6 plus “aftershocks”. Yes, the Pacific Rim is getting very angry or is this a very angry God?
It bears repeating. What’s up? The Solomon Islands have been rocking and rolling the last couple days with immense energy after what I’d previously described as a quiet January. Now all bets are off as far as the USGS “normal” activity goes. We’re back at an expectation of what does God have in store for this planet as the end of ages approaches. Continue reading
Ok, so yesterday I read, “Recent Quake Activity not Unusual, Expert says” which is, I guess, not shocking. Then, last night, I read that the Solomon Islands got rattled by an 8.o earthquake with at least three 6++ aftershocks. 6.8 is an aftershock??? After the first three 6+ earthquakes in the area do you think USGS could have quit hedging their bets and suggested that maybe, just maybe they could expect something bigger there, soon??? I wrote about, seemingly, the proclivity to issue appeasement articles from USGS, earlier last year to try to cover up the uptick in activity. It was apparent to those of us watching that we could expect something soon. Stan Deyo hit it dead on his forecasting maps from the 27th of January. Continue reading
Ok, I got the snow cleared out of our access driveway finally. I can’t complain, it’s been since December since the last big snow and, God knows, we need the water. January was pretty mild and quiet, for Wisconsin, and much of the water soaked in hopefully appeasing the drought.
Speaking of quiet, what looked like an auspicious start for the month with a 7+ earthquake to start the year things became very quiet. A pretty much uneventful month giving the doubters credence to their disregard of escalating global events. The month went by, everyone sat back and went back to business as usual. Continue reading
In a recent article I brought up a trend of major earthquakes hitting north and south of California forming a seeming oscillation around the Golden Bear state. Now, early this morning two strong earthquakes of 6.4 and 6.1 hit 166mi and 88mi , respectively from Avalon, California. These quakes were relatively shallow (about 10Km) but caused no damage reported yet. These two quakes seemed to have been building and I can’t help noticing that they are looking at Los Angeles square in the eye.
When I checked this morning on the Earthquake 3D program I have, I only saw one quake at 6.3. I’d noted earlier this year the tendency of the USGS to downgrade quakes and it appears that they decided to just average the two quakes, so does that make them 120 miles out? The track of the TWO quakes indicates a line just south of LA, a point of concern. When I wrote about observations earlier this year directing quakes toward California I noted an increasing crescendo of directional movement towards the state. This is a wake up call.

Well, here we are, ten days to go. I’m all set, made all my preparations, I’m good to go.
I talked to all my adult kids, made peace with any issues we had. I took out a $500M loan from a loan shark to ensure my cabin in steerage on one of the arks stowed in the Himalayas, booked my flight to get there. I’m not too worried about the loan shark :-) . Harold Camping was old and wise, but the Mayans, they were older and that was a smart group. I’m not worried about the fact they don’t exist anymore, they built that great place.
It amazes me, yet brings me great relief that more people aren’t on board with this. There’s not enough room in the arks as it is. Yet the writing is on the wall, or the stone, if you will. How can people ignore it, it says so, right there. Well, I for one am not about to ignore it. My house is sold, my bags are packed, gave my dog to my friend (the one I didn’t tell about the ark). We have a party planned the day before I leave for my (ahem..) Peace Corps trip (didn’t want to cause any consternation) so I don’t leave behind any food perishables. It’s good, I’m set, looking forward to the wonderful world that will be after the water subsides…….
Ya right! I got a bridge to sell ya, too. Continue reading
Today is December 7. Remembering, and never forgetting, that day that lives in infamy, when, in America, where it was safe to go outside, that very notion was challenged. “Just when you thought it was safe to go outside”……I always liked that line. It immediately appeals to the senses, brings an ominous ode, brings fear, trepidation. It could be huge, an unprecedented event suddenly, or simply a big hairy spider decided to put a web across the door frame. So it goes…
I was just reading at DEBKA files that the nuclear reactor at Bushehr in Iran had to be shut down in mid-October for fear of an explosion. And we’re just hearing abut this now?? Apparently, some bolts were laying on the bottom of the reactor tank under the rods. I guess this isn’t a good thing. My guess is that they heat up, boil the water and boom. Regardless, the accusation that the bolts came from the fuel rods was met with a strong, “not my fault” from the Russians who supplied the rods. They are looking at two possible scenarios. The first, deliberate sabotage (duh) or the fact that the Stuxnet virus got into the computers and tampered with the reactor’s computers. How does a reactor computer unscrew bolts and throw them in a reactor vessel? (DOH!) And then last but not least they haven’t ruled out an accident or “incompetence”. Then, added to this specter, there is the announcement of health issues around their nuclear sites. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy, well the warm part. Continue reading
A follow up to “A Special Anointing“
Sometimes when I leave a comment God’s anointing comes on and a prophetic Word comes out of it.
“Good morning Glynda,
Yes, I,too,felt the silence and the enemy, again, tried to kill me with an illness, but God’s Grace and purpose prevails.
The Lord spoke a number of times, quite clearly, that the Nov6 elections were to be a measure of the heart of America. God had already chosen the person, appointed to carry out His judgements, but each man and woman was to measure their hearts and vote God’s Word and heart, not the “lesser of two evils”. God had already said that the die was cast, search your hearts. Continue reading
Wow, what an eventful last couple days. Tuesday America voted suicide for the nation and the results for the act begin to fall into play. God knew in advance what would happen here, but, like Abraham pleading mercy for Sodom and Gomorrah asked if even ten righteous could be found. Well, that didn’t happen and the rest is history.
America chose it’s carnality and voted to keep him who placates it without satisfying it. God warned and warned and warned again, yet America didn’t heed and the promise, now, is soon to follow. Continue reading
Almost on the heels of president Obama refusing to meet with the Israeli PM, anti-American violence spread across the mid-east and now the world. The murder of the US ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens was an ominous signal on the anniversary of the WTC attacks that the Al Qaeda is still quite alive and working.
The US is no longer the power that it still pretends to be as these attacks all across the mid-east show. As I’ve pointed out before, the US has rejected Israel. The only involvement that the current administration has is in trying to flex its muscles and be the ruler of the mid-east. It might have sounded good on paper but there is a more divine force in operation. This Word came to me this morning: Continue reading
Now what? We’re starting to see an increase of deep earthquakes as indicated with the 7.3 by El Salvador this morning. Then followed up with a nice shaking in the San Diego area, giving a rattling start of the week on the east Pacific Rim. Apparently the El Salvador quake stirred up a very minor 3 1/2 in wave that hit the coast. When looking up deep earth quakes I’m reassured that, though strong in magnitude, they won’t impact the surface very much. That makes me really warm and fuzzy all over given that in 1922 deep earthquakes were “impossible” until someone discovered they actually happen. What if one of these things hits under a major fault? The TV mini series “10.5″ captured the notion of deep quakes in such a campy way that it created a, “ya, right” mentality. Continue reading
This word came this morning as I was in prayer.
Why do you sleep? Like a sluggard, a little folding of the hands, a closing of the eyes. You dream of what you will do, you dream of what will make you great. Why do you sleep? I’ve sounded trumpets. I’ve shaken the grounds. I’ve sent winds and scorching heat. Yet still you sleep. You dream of the great things you can build for me, yet they have your name on them. You build yourself up.
I am about to cleave this nation, the world will shudder. While you sleep I will split the land in two. The very heart of this land will be brought asunder. In your very heart I will render the earth apart and you who are not prepared will fall. I will tear you in two and your works will fail. Men will see that I am sovereign and just.
I have a few, and their hearts are prepared. They will rise up and minister to you. You will know that I am God and nothing, nothing, nothing I do will return void.

When I checked my copy of earthquake3d this morning (a great little application program that shows earthquakes around the world realtime), I noted a 6.0 earthquake by the Aleutian Islands chain. I remembered a posting I saw at tribulation-now.org about a mega-quake that would happen May 20, 2012. What amused me was that it drew a conclusion due to an “X” on a map where the eclipse path was going to be running and supposedly Elenin was believed to be going to strike there.
Well, I wrote about it here wondering aloud, what is this deal with the 20th or 21st for people soothsaying events. So now I see this earthquake today, of all places, where “X” marks the spot:
and today is June 19th, (Ok so what’s a month, less one day amongst friends). Now that was a little unnerving.
What brings up concern, really, though is an uncomfortable trend in the earthquake pattern. There has been a spinning cycle around the Pacific Rim this year but it’s been pretty much held to South America, Mexico and Indonesia. Up until now. Three days ago there was a 6.1 earthquake in the Philippines, then 2 days ago a 6.4 off of Japan and now this 6.0 followed by a 5.8 in the Aleutians. If the trend continues we could see a major earthquake in Oregon or California within days. I wrote earlier about the escalation of 6+ earthquakes this year and this movement over the last few weeks is the start of an ominous crescendo.
Prophecies have been on the increase and the urgency in God’s voice for His people to purify themselves for the coming cataclysms is strong. This will be a northern California quake, a precursor to what’s coming down the tubes. If you haven’t prepped you might want to take a little vacation. This won’t be the major quake, but don’t think that buys you time.
Are you prepped? Stores of food and water? Good. But are you really prepared? Are you filled with God’s Word? A friend shared with me that she was told to look at the binding on her Bible. Where the creases are, that is where you’ve eaten the Word and it’s inside of you, where the binding is smooth, that word isn’t in you….yet. Is there time? Yes, but no time like now. If you’re reading this it’s because God set up this appointment to give you the opportunity to be totally prepared. Take the time now, approach Him and receive the best preparation available, His Son and Holy Spirit. Open up the oldest and yet still the best preparation manual around ( sorry Holly, yours is second ;-) ) and so Receive Jesus today, then be able withstand anything else coming…
