EXCELLENT ARTICLE HERE TITLED "THE BLACK SWAN" BY PETE GARCIA FROM "THE OMEGA LETTER"!!

 
Probably the three most contentious points of scripture are the Creation, Jesus Christ's first advent, and His Second Advent.  These are under more attack, by more agencies both inside and out of Christendom than almost any other.  The truth is, very few people believe in an actual literal return of our Lord and Savior.  It is more akin to that bumper sticker I've seen from time to time that states: "Jesus is coming back, look busy".
 
The "Black Swan Event/Theory" was put forth by a man named Nassim Taleb, who is a Lebanese American that studies randomness and probability.  His book, "The Black Swan" is listed as one of the top 12 most influential books since World War II.  He applies statistics and mathematics to the probability of events that have occurred and/or to the likeliness that they could occur.  I came to understand it (in laymen's terms) to be an unexpected event that should have been seen coming, but couldn't because nothing like it had ever happened before.

Whether or not a crime is actually a hate crime doesn’t depend upon any objective test. Perish the thought that the police might value such evidence! 
As Humpty Dumpty might have said, had Lewis Carroll been sufficiently politically correct: “When I use the phrase hate crime, it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”

THE UNITED NATIONS TURNS STARVATION INTO "A CASH COW" BY DR MICHAEL LAITMAN FROM "THE JERUSALEM POST"!!

UN TURNS STARVATION INTO A CASH COW!!
BY
  Less than a week ago, Stephen O'Brien, the United Nations Coordinator for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief stated, “More than 20 million people across four countries face starvation and famine. Without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death. Many more will suffer and die from disease.” Mr. O’Brien also said “$4.4bn was needed by July to avert disaster.”

Here is what I’d like to know: Mr. O’Brien has been in office for nearly two years now. What has he been doing all this time? What has the UN been doing? Starvation of twenty million people does not happen overnight. Why has the UN not sounded the alarm before? All of a sudden, the Internet and newsfeeds are inundated with harrowing images of emaciated children. Could the UN not tell the world about this when only five or ten million people were starving? Apparently, someone in that defunct institution calculated that it requires no less than twenty million starving people to redeem a ransom of $4.4 bn by July.

LIGONIER MINISTRIES WITH "WHAT IS SHAPING YOU" BY NANCY GUTHRIE!!

What Is Shaping You?

There’s a section in department stores these days called “shapewear.” It’s in both women’s and men’s clothing. These stores are banking on our concern with the shape of our bodies and our willingness to invest in garments that promise to give us the shape we’re looking for.
But when we read Paul’s letter to the church in Rome, we discover it’s not what is shaping our bodies that he is most concerned about. He’s concerned about what is shaping our perspective, our priorities, our pursuits, and our opinions. He writes:
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Rom. 12:2)
His words force us to ask ourselves: What external forces are shaping my internal dialogue about what matters? What pressures me to make the choices I am making about how I spend my money, my time, and my energies? Am I self-aware enough to know? Ever since we were born into this world, it has been working to press us into its mold.

DR JOHN McTERNAN WITH "2017 AND GOD'S TIMETABLE FOR ISRAEL"!!

2017 and God’s Timeline for Israel

By JohnMcTernan 
 The rebirth of the nation of Israel is unique among all the nations in history. Starting in 600 BC, the nation was totally destroyed, not once but twice. Amazingly, after each destruction, it came back into existence. Not only was the nation destroyed twice, but each time nearly all of the people were taken captive into foreign countries. Yet they returned to the land. All this points to the uniqueness of Israel. This nation is not like the others because it is based on an everlasting covenant with God!

"How Democrats Brought a Muslim Child Molester to America" By The Always Informative Dr John McTernan!!

How Democrats Brought a Muslim Child Molester to America

By John McTernan
  This is all part of the surreal mindset, the reprobate mind, to which a huge section of America has been turned over. It seems that these people are annoyed that the Muslim was found to be a child molester, rather than be upset that he is a criminal molester of a 12 year old girl, which is legal under Islam!

New Strain Of Terrifying Street Drug ‘Spice’ Creating Entire Subculture Of Human Zombies Across The Globe!!

New post on Now The End Begins

New Strain Of Terrifying Street Drug ‘Spice’ Creating Entire Subculture Of Human Zombies Across The Globe

by Geoffrey Grider

Dead men and women were walking the streets of central Manchester this week.  Some of them, their faces wan and eyes open, but filled with a terrible vacancy, stumble forward with arms out-stretched.

"And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them." Revelation 9:6 (KJV)
Imagine people standing stock-still like shop mannequins, seemingly unconscious but upright, or slumped forward, as commuters scurry past with their heads down. There were still more I spotted comatose on pavements or slumped in doorways. One young man in a grey tracksuit lolled on the steps outside McDonald’s, twitching and gibbering to himself.
Outside the Arndale Shopping Centre, I saw another youth passed out on his back, his arms and legs extended into the air as if rigor mortis had set in. These are the victims of Spice, a generic term for various mixtures of herbs and potent chemicals which, until last May, was openly on sale in Britain as a so-called ‘legal high’.

The Walking Dead: New strain of spice turns homeless into zombies

Now, a powerful strain has emerged that produces a terrifying zombie-like effect in those who smoke it. It is estimated that up to 95 per cent of the young homeless in Manchester are using it, many of them hopelessly addicted.

Drug experts are warning of a Spice epidemic that is spreading from the North-West, driving a wave of crime and casualties that the police and emergency services are struggling to cope with.

‘Spice has the physically addictive qualities of heroin and the psychologically addictive qualities of crack,’ says Robert Ralphs, senior lecturer in criminology at the University of Manchester and an expert on the drug.
The crisis came to national attention this week following the publication of video footage, shot by an office worker in Manchester, showing people under its influence.
Photographs published in the Mail, taken by a bus driver who was alarmed by what he was seeing along his route each day in Wrexham in North Wales, further underlined this developing threat.

It has led to calls for Spice to be made a Class A drug.

I was, I admit, highly sceptical of the claims being made for Spice. I’m from Edinburgh, the heroin capital of Europe in the Eighties and setting for the film Trainspotting. I haven’t led a sheltered life and I believed I knew the worst that drugs could do.

Drug induced Zombie walk, Charlton St. Worcester, Mass. USA

It seemed highly unlikely a drug first produced as a supposedly ‘safe’ synthetic cannabis alternative — something available as a legal high for years to British teenagers — could have morphed into a substance wreaking more destruction than heroin or crack cocaine, as some of the reports suggested.
But what I have discovered is that there is nothing exaggerated about the effects of this highly addictive drug, as was evident within minutes of my arrival at Manchester Piccadilly Station this week.
Around the city square and shopping area in Piccadilly Gardens, the ‘zombies’ with their sunken cheeks and ghostly white skin covered in sores are highly visible. I watched users on a bench packing their pipes with Spice. Within seconds of smoking the drug, they were catatonic.
Carl, 50, was mixing his fix — an odourless, crumbly, green mix — with tobacco to roll in a joint when I approached him, just 20 yards from a mobile police office. He became addicted some years ago after buying the drug at a shop selling legal highs.
‘It’s awful to come off it — you rattle,’ he told me. ‘I’ve tried to get off it, but it’s harder than gear [heroin].’ He inhaled on the joint. It looked like a cigarette and was odourless — one reason users feel no need to hide their habit.
‘I smoke this because it’s better for me than injecting with needles — better for my health. I’m starting to feel woozy. I can feel all my problems going away.’ The conversation was swiftly terminated: Carl decided he wanted to be alone. He stood up and moved down the street. I watched him go. Five minutes later, he had managed barely 100 yards.
Carl is a typical victim in that the roots of this problem go back to the manufacture of legal highs in the late Nineties. These were chemical compounds sold in attractive packaging and made in industrial quantities in China and India to beat UK drugs laws.
They were not covered by legislation because the key chemicals they contained were unknown. Under names such as Black Mamba, K2 and Spice, they were sold as ‘harmless’ synthetic cannabis substitutes in legal high shops across Britain.
After a series of deaths were linked to them, the government acted — belatedly in the view of many who had been warning of the dangers — to shut down these shops last May, when a new law was introduced banning all psychoactive substances said to impact mental health.
However, it was too late for those already addicted and so the demand for Spice remained. Dealers of traditional hard drugs such as ‘white’ and ‘brown’ (slang for cocaine and heroin) started selling Spice, which is far cheaper and less risky to make locally than to import hard drugs.
The so-called Spice barons buy plant materials in bulk on the internet and spray them with synthetic chemicals which have potent psychoactive properties. Some dealers mix whole batches in their baths.
Tests on a Spice sample obtained in Manchester this week indicated the leaves had been sprayed with 5F-ADB, a synthetic chemical originally developed to mimic cannabis, but which is far more ‘efficient’.
It has been linked to a number of deaths in the UK and abroad. According to some experts, one Spice joint is akin to smoking up to 100 cannabis joints.
No one can explain why the drug has taken hold so quickly or why in Manchester particularly. But price is a factor.
So much is being produced that it’s half the price it was when sold as a ‘legal high’. At £5 a fix — a small plastic bag of Spice bearing an image of Bob Marley — will produce three joints and leave the user comatose for ten hours. source
