What a perfect way to start off 2012...

Wow. Now this is something that a few of "us" would have noticed and talked about. Now look...

The Denver Broncos’ playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night was unlikely enough, but Tim Tebow’s passing yardage — the Christian quarterback threw 316 yards — sent commentators over the edge. The Associated Press reported that he also averaged 31.6 yards per completion. The religious connotations to John 3:16, a famous Bible verse, were too much for many to chalk up to chance.

For the true believers, it was no coincidence.

Tebow has said previously that the Bible verse, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” is his favorite. When he wore the Scripture verse on his eye black during the National Championship Game in 2009, the term “John 3:16” was reportedly Googled more than 90 million times.

The Christian athlete has faced repeated criticism during this NFL season for wearing his faith on his sleeve. Bill Maher criticized Tebow (and Jesus) in a controversial Tweet after a Denver loss, and “Saturday Night Live” mocked the quarterback in a skit in which Jesus suggested that the quarterback “take it down a notch.”

Some say that the religious significance of Sunday’s game went deeper than the stats. In a column this weekend for The Washington Post’s Outlook section, David Kuo and Patton Dodd set up the showdown between Tebow and Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger this way:

“Tebow and Roethlisberger point to the essential aspects of evangelicalism, the ones that make it persist — its missionary, proclamatory character on the one hand, and its private, searching piety on the other. The former wants to appeal to the whole world, which is why Tebow’s family raised him not only to preach, but to persuade others with a winning demeanor. The latter wants a changed life; Roethlisberger, in evangelical parlance, rededicated his life to Jesus after a period of backsliding, because he knew no other way to break his pattern of misbehavior.”

The Broncos’ win Sunday means that, for a week at least, Tebow mania is here to stay.





It is also very interesting that Tim Tebow's number is 15.

Here is how that number connects to the 11:11 Phenomenon and to God.

An excerpt from my Chapter 13 - 11:11:

As an example of attempting to figure out this mystery, following is an interesting exchange of ideas that occurred recently in a discussion group I belong to regarding this 11:11 phenomenon (the following table can be used for reference purposes):

It is also very interesting (at least to me :) that, as Nate pointed out to me awhile ago, Tim Tebow and I have a very significant connection... We share the same birthday... AUGUST 14.

And weirdly enough, according to timeanddate.com, there are 1408 weeks between our birthdates, and 1408 is of course... AUGUST 14!

Duration calculation results

From and including: Sunday, August 14, 1960
To, but not including: Friday, August 14, 1987

It is 9861 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date
Or 27 years excluding the end date

Alternative time units

9861 days can be converted to one of these units:
  • 851,990,400 seconds
  • 14,199,840 minutes
  • 236,664 hours
  • 1408 weeks (rounded down)


  • And remember this from My King Arthur/Holy Grail Connections chapter?








    A few other interesting connections are:

    Tim's middle name is RICHARD, and that is my father's name.

    Tim was born in 1987, and that is the year my first child, Tyler, was born. (And both born on a Friday.)

    The Denver Broncos were founded on August 14, 1959 so another August 14 connection.

    There are two HARRIS's on the Denver Broncos team, Christopher and Ryan.




    Ok... So a couple of hours after I write and post the above, I am vacuuming. While I am vacuuming my son Craig's room, I see this little pink scroll sticking out of his bookcase. I remember that it is a scroll that he made in Sunday School a looong time ago. (He turned 22 2 days ago on January 7 so it was probably at least 15 years ago.) (And this is my first post of Part 22.) Anyway, I can't remember which verse it is, so I think, "wouldn't that be amazing if after what I wrote about today, it was John 3:16."

    So I stop vacuuming and open up the scroll to see...

    No, it wasn't John 3:16.

    Even better!

    Here I am writing about Timothy Tebow and 3:16 and Craig's scroll is about 2 Timothy 3:16.

    What did that article say?... "For the true believers, it was no coincidence."


           





    1090) January 10, 2012    HALO

    www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/09/mile-high-halo-over-broncos_n_1194204.html
    'Mile High Halo' Forms Over Tim Tebow And Mile High Stadium During Broncos Steelers Game (PHOTOS)

    Let's all try to be calm and rational about this. In addition to Tim Tebow throwing 316 yards in the Broncos' upset over the Steelers (Tebow painted Bible verse John 3:16 under his eyes in college) and fans replacing "Tebow" with "Jesus" on their jerseys, apparently a halo-like smoke ring formed over Mile High yesterday after the Broncos scored their first field goal.

    Mark Neuman-Lee, an attendee of the Steelers/Broncos game and photographer of the "Mile High Halo," tells HuffPost he'd never seen the ring prior to yesterday's NFL upset. Two season pass ticket-holders also told HuffPost the halo seems to be an anomaly. At the time of publication, a request for comment from the Broncos was not immediately returned.








    I added the above post this morning after I saw the article online.

    About an hour later I was looking to see what was on television and noticed a movie coming on later that caught my attention... Earth's Final Hours. I wondered if I had seen it before so I clicked on the information to read about it. It was made in 2011 and starred Cameron Bright (who I have had many syncs about which I have posted) so I knew I had not seen it previously. Because of the title, and because it had Cameron Bright, I knew I had to watch it, so I set the timer on the television to automatically turn to this channel when the movie started.

    Just minutes into the movie, I was startled to see what I had just seen earlier in that Tim Tebow article that I had just posted.

    The exact same HALO!

    What are the chances that I would post about a halo cloud and then see the exact same halo cloud in a movie?

    The image appeared very quickly and I was certainly not expecting it, so I did not get a picture. So I checked the tv guide to see if the movie would be on again and it was, so I did get a picture to document this "coincidence."

    This was just too bizarre not to mean something...

    Personally, I believe it occurred to emphasize that we are indeed in Earth's Final Hours.


         


         





    1091) January 11, 2012    Doomsday Clock

    Speaking of Earth's Final Hours...

    Doomsday clock 1 minute closer to midnight
    By Charles Cooper
    January 10, 2012 2:27 PM



    i.i.com.com/cnwk.1d/i/tim/2012/01/10/Doomsday-clock-over-The-Earth_620x350.jpg


    (CBS News) The clock is ticking.

    Scientists on Tuesday pushed the hands of the infamous "Doomsday Clock" forward one minute from last year, signalling their increasing pessimism about the efforts of world leaders to handle global threats.

    "It is now five minutes to midnight," the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) said in a sober assessment of current trends. "Two years ago, it appeared that world leaders might address the truly global threats that we face. In many cases, that trend has not continued or been reversed."

    In January 2010, the clock's minute hand was pushed back one minute from five to six minutes before midnight. Midnight symbolizes humanity's destruction.

    The clock setting, which has been a staple since 1947, represents the severity of the perceived threat to humanity from nuclear or biological weapons, climate change and other human-caused disasters. When it began this annual tradition, the BAS set the time at seven minutes to midnight. Following the first test of the hydrogen bomb, the doomsday clock ticked to two minutes before midnight in 1953. When the United States and Russia began reducing their nuclear arsenals in 1991, the Bulletin set the clock at 17 minutes to midnight.

    In explaining its latest move, the BAS bemoaned the ability of global leaders to move ahead on ridding the world of nuclear weapons.

    In particular, it called out the failure to win agreement on the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty by leaders in the United States, China, Iran, India, Pakistan, Egypt, Israel, and North Korea. It also mentioned the inability a reach a treaty to eliminate production of nuclear weapons material, leaving the world at risk to continued development of nuclear weapons. The BAS cited the ongoing ambiguity surrounding Iran's nuclear power program as emblematic of this lingering problem.

    There are about 19,500 nuclear weapons in the world today, according to the BAS, which cautioned that "it is still possible for radical groups to acquire and use highly enriched uranium and plutonium to wreak havoc in nuclear attacks."

    It also referenced last year's accident at Japan's Fukushima nuclear facility, saying the disaster underscored the urgency of developing safer nuclear reactor designs as well as better oversight, training, and attention. "We're trying to weight whether that was a wake-up call, whether it will make people take a closer look at this new and very powerful technology, or whether people will go on with business as usual," said BAS executive director, Kennette Benedict.

    The gloom did not end there. The Bulletin believes that the world may have neared what it called "a point of no return in efforts to prevent catastrophe from changes in Earth's atmosphere." It said that in the absence of finding alternatives to carbon-emitting energy technologies within five years," the world will be doomed to a warmer climate, harsher weather, droughts, famine, water scarcity, rising sea levels, loss of island nations, and increasing ocean acidification.

    "Unfortunately, Einstein's statement in 1946 that 'everything has changed, save the way we think,' remains true," said BAS co-chair Lawrence Krauss. "The provisional developments of 2 years ago have not been sustained, and it makes sense to move the clock closer to midnight, back to the value it had in 2007."

    Despite what he said were clear and present dangers of nuclear proliferation and climate change, and the need to find sustainable and safe sources of energy," Krauss warned that world leaders were still treating these challenges as business as usual.

    Happy new year.






    "Unfortunately, Einstein's statement in 1946 that 'everything has changed, save the way we think,' remains true,"


    Yes, this is truly "unfortunate" indeed. And we were warned...

    1092) January 11, 2012    Doomsday Clock Countdown Apps

    I think pretty much everyone is aware of December 21, 2012 now...


    www.phonesreview.co.uk/2012/01/11/doomsday-clock-2012-countdown-begins-via-apps/
    Doomsday Clock 2012, countdown begins via apps
    Date: January 11th, 2012


    So, December 21, 2012 is the day the world will apparently come to an end. Is this all myth and Mayan madness, or could this actually be the truth and the end is nigh? It has been said that a cataclysmic or some sort of major event will happen on the this date, so to keep track of this day we decided to add the best countdown apps.

    Doomsday Clock 2012, countdown begins via apps, and we have applications for both iOS and Android devices.

    The fist app is simply called “Doomsday – 6 Countdown Clocks” via the App Store. This app contains 6 clocks covering these predictions: Mayan Calendar, Pope Declaration, Mystical Number 666, Asteroid 1997 XF11, Quran Code and Nostradamus.

    The second app is the “Doomsday Countdown 2012” for iOS via the App Store, The Maya believe that the world will end, and December 2012 this year is the dreaded date for disaster if not the end of the world.

    Up third for the best Doomsday apps is “Countdown 2012 Mayan Calendar Doomsday”, the ancient Mayan Long Count Calendar will come to and end according to believers. This app gives a precise countdown to December 21st, 2012 in many different styles.

    Now we move onto Android apps, this is fourth on our list and this one is called “Countdown to Doomsday 2012” via the Android Market. 2012 Apocalypse as they call it is coming, so how about an app to countdown those dreaded months, days, hours, minutes and seconds.

    The next and fifth app is the “2012 Countdown Widget” for your Android device such as a tablet or smartphone. No need to explain what it does, it is self-explanatory. For more information please visit the Android Market.





    1093) January 22, 2012    CME

    On January 19th a large CME erupted headed directly towards Earth.

    Two things caught my attention. Two things that connect to my Tim Tebow posts...

    First, spaceweather.com described it as a FULL-HALO CME, connecting to the HALO information in my posts.

    Second, I noticed that the very next sunspot to appear will be numbered 1408, connecting to the 1408 information in my posts.









    The above CME hit Earth on January 22. The very same day that it hit, Sunspot 1408 appeared.








    1094) January 25, 2012    "The Sun/Son of God Speaks to Earth" PART VII


    From my Chapter 18-5 Post #260:

    260) May 17, 2005     "The Sun/Son of God Speaks to Earth" PART II

    If you have read this chapter, you know I have discussed the numbers 33, 333, 333... many times and explained that they connect to JESUS. And JESUS is the "Son/Sun of God." [And connecting to the Son of God/Daughter of God theme, I turned 23333333.33333 minutes old last Christmas day, December 25, 2004, the day of the devastating South Asian tsunami (my time AST). See post #189. Also, Sunspot 486, the source of this biggest solar flare ever recorded, contains the numbers of my birthdate: 14/8/60.]

    I found the time of Earth impact of the biggest solar flare ever recorded to be November 6 at 1930 UT. What I discovered was amazing. Remember... The Sun = The Son = Jesus = 33 / 333 / 3333 etc.

    The day after Sunspot 1408 appeared, on January 23 (333 days before December 21, 2012), another very powerful CME erupted again headed towards Earth.

    It created the largest Solar Storm Earth has experienced in over 8 years (since 2003).

    Biggest Solar Storm in Eight Years Now Pummeling Earth
    Andrew Fazekas
    For National Geographic News
    Published January 24, 2012


    Earth is currently weathering the largest solar storm recorded in more than eight years, thanks to a giant wave of charged particles from the sun that slammed into the planet's magnetic field Tuesday morning.

    In the early hours on Monday, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory caught an extreme ultraviolet flash from a solar flare, which was followed by a giant coronal mass ejection, or CME—a cloud of superheated gas and charged particles hurled off the sun.

    The cloud headed toward Earth at a speed of about three million miles (4.8 million kilometers) an hour, reaching the planet a mere 35 hours after it had been unleashed.

    When CMEs strike Earth, the charged particles pummel our planet's protective magnetic field, causing geomagnetic storms that can trigger brilliant auroras. Sky-watchers in Scandanavia, Alaska, and Canada are already reporting a surge in the northern lights, with the strongest activity expected tonight.

    But intense solar storms can also cause electrical disruptions to power grids, damage orbiting satellites, and interfere with GPS signals, radio communications, and even airline flights.

    "Because the initial solar flare was measured to be quite strong, it produced a substantial wave of solar radiation, the likes of which has not seen since October 2003," said Bill Murtagh, senior forecaster for NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado.

    "The solar radiation is currently at strong levels, and [such storms] typically persist for at least for a day or two until the entire storm passes Earth," he added.

    "At this point, we have reports of sporadic radio-communication blackouts in high-latitude regions, which has led to the rerouting of some polar airline flights."


    Why Solar Storms Impact Polar Flights

    Airlines conducting flights across the polar regions are particularly concerned about solar storms, because particles from CMEs get funnelled by Earth's magnetic field so that they become concentrated around the poles.

    "Because long-distance flights across the polar regions cannot always use satellite-based communication, they rely on traditional radio communication," Murtagh said. "However, during a solar-radiation storm, there are frequently extended periods of radio blackout. Adhering to federal aviation regulations then becomes a problem, because flights are required to remain in communication at all times."

    Despite the airlines' precautions, this solar storm is actually considered to be moderate and isn't expected to cause major disturbances to ground- or space-based assets, said Antti Pulkkinen, a space weather scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

    However, the storm could have been much worse, he said. "The CME was big, with well over a billion tons of mass behind it barrelling through interplanetary space ... so it probably had the capability of causing some damage," he said. "We pretty much dodged a bullet, because the CME did not directly hit Earth's magnetic field, so we got lucky in that we only got a glancing blow from the storm and did not feel its full effect."

    In March 1989, for example, a severe geomagnetic storm caused a massive power blackout the Canadian province of Quebec, plunging millions into darkness for nine hours.


    More Sun Storms to Come

    Thanks to improved computer modeling and a flotilla of sun-monitoring satellites, space weather researchers have been able to refine their forecasts to the point where they know down to mere hours when a solar storm might arrive.

    "We are very pleased with how precise our predictions were for when [today's] CME would hit," Pulkkinen said. "Our models were off by a mere 13 minutes from the actual arrival time, which is quite remarkable."

    The sun is currently heading toward solar maximum in 2013, when it will reach peak activity in its natural 11-year cycle. Space weather forecasters are therefore expecting a definite uptick in the power and frequency of solar storms, making such monitoring and prediction efforts all the more critical.

    "As we approach 2013, we expect to see more intense solar blasts on the sun, and some of them will no doubt be directed toward Earth," Pulkkinen said. "So we are definitely in for more of these kind of events in the near future."





    Going to see Shawn Colvin tonight at the Rebecca Cohn.

    Light the sky and hold on tight
    The world is burning down


    2 Peter 3:10
    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.


    NOTE: Amazingly talented songwriter, singer, and musician...

    Another songwriter/singer whose songs (many if not most) are about their relationship with God/Jesus but hidden (in plain sight) in symbolism, metaphor, and double meanings. And sometimes, (the 'in plain sight' part), they actually say it, but everyone just assumes that is symbolism or metaphor. Either way, they win (but what, besides the obvious Fame and Fortune?) and no one has a clue. Brilliant.

    But if they are ever going to get together on this and "come out of the closet", so to speak, and tell the world the truth about what and Who they are really singing about, they had better hurry up.

    December 21, 2012 is fast approaching, and Sunny is Coming Home.


    Concert Review: thechronicleherald.ca/artslife/55860-colvin-brings-warmth-dead-winter-opener

    "But when she does chronicle a love gone wrong, Colvin nails it succinctly, like on the new co-write with Jakob Dylan, Seven Times the Charm, a brooding waltz about a heart toyed with and a faith betrayed that quickly descends from cosmic bliss to emotional desolation."

    People read this and still don't have a clue. Even the author who wrote this doesn't have a clue. He has no idea that he has hit the nail right on the head. Drives me Gnarls Barkley. (If you don't get that, then read the last paragraph of the Review :)






    Great clue...


    From the Review: "She even stepped into the shoes of her Simpsons character, Christian rock singer Rachel Jordan, and did an a cappella version of her song of salvation He’s the Man."

    Rachel (spoken): This is a love song about a dude I met in a sleazy motel... A dude named God!

    In a motel room in Delacroix,
    I was drinking like a Dartmouth boy, (I imagine there were a few Dartmouth boys in the audience :)
    And thinkin' 'bout the wrong turns that I took.
    Well I woke up on the puke green floor,
    And opened up a dresser drawer,
    Lookin' for a bottle but instead I found a book.

    A book about a man,
    A book about the dude who lives above.
    A book about a man,
    Who drives a pickup full of sweet, sweet love.

    Now if you think he doesn't care,
    Or maybe that he isn't there,
    It's not too late to see how wrong you are.
    So when your soul has gone astray,
    Just let God be your triple-A,
    He'll tow you to salvation and he'll overhaul your heart!

    Asteroid to make near-miss fly-by
    27 January 2012 Last updated at 04:51 ET

    An asteroid will pass by the Earth on Friday in something of a cosmic near-miss, making its closest approach at about 1600 GMT.

    The asteroid, estimated to be about 11m (36ft) in diameter, was first detected on Wednesday. At its closest, the space rock - named 2012 BX34 - will pass within about 60,000km of Earth - less than a fifth of the distance to the Moon.

    Astronomers stress that there is no cause for concern.

    "It's one of the closest approaches recorded," said Gareth Williams, associate director of the US-based Minor Planet Center. "It makes it in to the top 20 closest approaches, but it's sufficiently far away... that there's absolutely no chance of it hitting us," he told the BBC.

    The asteroid's path makes it the closest space-rock to pass by the Earth since object 2011 MD in June 2011.




    1098) January 27, 2012    Add Another One To "The List"...

    www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/27/taylor-swift-jake-gyllenhaal_n_1236334.html?ir=Canada+Style
    Taylor Swift 'Haunted' By Jake Gyllenhaal
    First Posted: 01/27/2012 9:15 am Updated: 01/27/2012 10:37 am

    By now, we all know Taylor Swift has dated a medley of boys and made a buck or two singing about them, but one in particular has seemed to have stumped her -- Jake Gyllenhaal. Swift openly talked about love and dating in the February issue of Vogue, admitting that her next album was going to be about an "earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak," leaving us to wonder whose rude departure she plotted on next crystalizing in country croon.

    Looks like we may now have our answer: Sources for US Weekly are pointing fingers at 31-year-old Gyllenhaal, who dumped 22-year-old Swift after just three months last year. "She's haunted by that relationship," the source said. "[He] totally screwed with her mind."


    Jake Gyllenhaal? Pretty much 100% certain that's not it. Guess again...

    Just add another singer/songwriter to "The List".





    1099) February 2, 2012    12:21

    A few days ago I added a feature to the end of my Chapter 13. It is a map that shows where people who read that chapter are located around the world.

    Today I noticed that someone had looked at it this morning at... 12:21
    .
    Now why this is interesting is because 12:21 connects to December 21, 2012.

    Now why this is even more interesting is because my Chapter 13 is about 11:11 which connects to this date of December 21, 2012. (Read my Chapter 13 to see how.)

    What a coincidence! :)





    This is the second 12:21 I have gotten in the past few days...

    I go through a lot of flour because I use my breadmaker a lot. (Which, by the way, starts mixing at 3:16.)

    A few days ago I was just about to open a new bag of flour when I noticed the 12:21 stamped on the top of the bag.

    Ok... December 21, 2012 I thought. So I took a picture. Because of seeing the other 12:21 this morning, I have decided to add this to this post.

    (Today's brown bread turned out perfect :)


           





    1100) February 2, 2012    Last Night

    Speaking of December 21, 2012...

    I was just looking to see what was on tv and the title of this movie caught my attention so I clicked on Information to see what it was about.

    It was called Last Night:

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_Night_(1998_film)
    Last Night is a 1998 Canadian drama film by Don McKellar. It was filmed in Toronto.

    Set in Toronto at an unknown date, Last Night tells the story of how a variety of intersecting characters spend their final evening on Earth. It seems the world is to end at midnight (Eastern Standard Time) as the result of a calamity that is not explained, but which has been expected for several months. There are several scenes of an ominously glowing sun, which gets progressively larger and brighter even into the night.

    Not only is the subject of this movie... interesting, but this movie was made in 1998 and that is the year that "this" all started with me.

           





    1101) February 2, 2012    Leonard Cohen - 'Old Ideas'

    Ok... Here is a great example of what I am trying to tell you when I say that many (most) singer/songwriters are actually singing about their relationship with God/Jesus but that hardly anyone "gets it"...

    I heard on the television today that Leonard Cohen's new CD Old Ideas was just released, so knowing that he is another on "The List" I searched the Internet to see if I could find the lyrics to these songs so I could read what he had to say (about God/Jesus). Wow.

    So then I searched the Internet to read some of the reviews that were out there.

    Here is an example of how most of the general population does not "get it"...

    GOING HOME

    I love to speak with Leonard
    He’s a sportsman and a shepherd
    He’s a lazy bastard
    Living in a suit

    But he does say what I tell him
    Even though it isn’t welcome
    He will never have the freedom
    To refuse

    He will speak these words of wisdom
    Like a sage, a man of vision
    Though he knows he’s really nothing
    But the brief elaboration of a tube

    Going home
    Without my sorrow
    Going home
    Sometime tomorrow
    To where it’s better
    Than before

    Going home
    Without my burden
    Going home
    Behind the curtain
    Going home
    Without the costume
    That I wore

    He wants to write a love song
    An anthem of forgiving
    A manual for living with defeat

    A cry above the suffering
    A sacrifice recovering
    But that isn’t what I need him to complete

    I want to make him certain
    That he doesn’t have a burden
    That he doesn’t need a vision

    That he only has permission
    To do my instant bidding
    That is to SAY what I’ve told him
    To repeat

    Going home
    Without my sorrow
    Going home
    Sometime tomorrow
    Going home
    To where it’s better
    Than before

    Going home
    Without my burden
    Going home
    Behind the curtain
    Going home
    Without the costume
    That I wore

    I love to speak with Leonard
    He’s a sportsman and a shepherd
    He’s a lazy bastard
    Living in a suit



    Excerpt from: www.timeslive.co.za/entertainment/2012/02/03/new-cd-leonard-cohen-old-ideas:

    DURING his 44-year career, Leonard Cohen has worn his heart on his sleeve.

    Now, in Going Home, the first song on his latest album, Old Ideas, he speaks to himself, writing in the third person about his struggles.

    "I love to speak with Leonard / He's a sportsman and a shepherd / He's a lazy bastard / Living in a suit."

    Cohen acknowledges an unforeseen force pulling the strings of his life and ultimately, though not depressingly, he seems, in this elegiac act of surrender, to face the fact that he is "Going home / Without my burden / Going home/ Behind the curtain".

    No, No, No... He is NOT speaking to himself. This is NOT the perspective from which he is writing.



    And then I found this review. Wow. This person DOES get it! (This is an excellent review by the way.)

    Excerpt from: www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/31/us-leonardcohen-idUSTRE80U1IH20120131:

    You could endlessly debate whether the standard by that name counts as an actual spiritual. (Very few gospel songwriters before Cohen ever thought to rhyme "hallelujah" with "what's it to ya.") That tradition continues in a big way on "Old Ideas," where more of the songs than not have vaguely religious overtones.

    He's talking "old" as in Old Testament-type concerns -- the kind of spiritual-throwback stuff that never fails to baffle and delight fans, coming as it does from the world's most dapper Buddhist.

    The very first song, "Going Home," brilliantly establishes his reverent irreverence. The choruses are pure gospel, really, with Cohen considering his mortality and singing about "going home without my burden. without the costume that I wore."

    Maybe he felt these death-themed thoughts were too earnest to put out there on their own, though. Because the verses are pure comedy, narrated by God himself, who arrogantly boasts that he dictates all his material to the hapless channeler "Leonard . a lazy bastard living in a suit." Put them together, and you might have the most moving and funniest song Cohen ever wrote in one peculiar package.

    Yes, Yes, Yes... Leonard Cohen is not speaking to himself - it is GOD who is speaking to Leonard. THAT is the perspective from which this song was written.



    "Seeing" is all about... Perspective.

    You just have to change "The Way" you look at things.

    AND "The Way" you LISTEN.





    1102) February 5, 2012    Dion

    This story appears on my AOL Homepage today...

    What Dion says confirms what I just told you in the post above - that music has a deeper meaning than most people are aware of.

    (And that you have to change your PERSPECTIVE (don't look/listen on the surface... look/listen "deeper") in order to SEE (understand).

    This is a very difficult concept to understand - and moreso to even believe - but it is true...


    Excerpts from: www.spinner.ca/2012/01/24/dion-tank-full-of-blues/?icid=maing-grid7%7Ccanada-toshiba%7Cdl7%7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D132594:

    Dion Explores Bluesy Side of His Hits and the 'Pain' of Buddy Holly Plane Crash
    Posted on Jan 24th 2012 3:10PM by Chris Epting


    (Dion recently spoke with Spinner about the new album, his storied career, Bob Dylan and "The Day the Music Died.")

    I know the blues is known for being deep music that deals with serious emotions. But even 'Teenager in Love' has questions about life and love and pain. I once asked Bob Dylan to write something for an album I was doing, for the liner notes. He wrote all about 'Teenager in Love,' four paragraphs' worth, and he talks about that song and the depth of it that people might overlook if they don't read between the lines. Dylan stressed that it wasn't claptrap, and that it had deeper meaning that may not be evident at first. He totally understood and I love him for that.

    Also, listen to 'The Wanderer.' It's a deeper song than people think. Those lyrics: "Oh well, I roam from town to town/I go through life without a care/And I'm as happy as a clown/I with my two fists of iron and I'm going nowhere." That's not just some throwaway song. There's a lot more going on than you might think.

    And I always say that 'Runaround Sue' is a blues song cleverly disguised as rock 'n' roll.


    In my opinion, "The Day The Music Died" has not happened yet.

    That day will come when people realize what their favourite songs and musicians are really singing about through their "cleverly disguised" lyrics, and when they realize how they have been being deceived - for decades - and how these musicians have exploited God/Jesus - and us - for their own fame and fortune.

    THAT will be "The Day The Music Dies"...

    1104) February 12, 2012    Whitney Houston

    Watching the news last night I was so very shocked and saddened to hear about Whitney's death.

    I really believe this was a tragedy that did not need to happen. I believe it could have been prevented, somehow...

    What I want to say here is going to be very difficult to explain as it is very complicated - and unbelievable.

    In fact, you probably won't believe it...

    When I heard this news last night, I immediately felt that I should write a post about Whitney, telling the world what I believe to be true about her, and providing evidence that I have collected over the years, to try and prove that what I believe to be true is true.

    Because what I believe to be true about Whitney, I also believe to be true for many other musicians, and perhaps by telling the world what I know, maybe it could prevent another such tragedy from happening.

    I thought about this a lot last night, wondering if I should or not, and wondering how I could possibly organize it all. Then this morning, with these thoughts still in my mind, something happened that I believe is a sign telling me that, "Yes, you should."



    Believe it or not, a few days ago, Whitney Houston was on my mind. I did some searching on the Internet and found an interesting post in someone's blog about Whitney that was extremely relevant to my beliefs about her. I saved it in my 'Favorites' for possible future reference. Little did I know that this "future" would only be a few days away. This lady's blog article was written back in September of 2009 about a chance meeting she had with Whitney back in 2001.

    This morning, after hearing last night's news, I looked for this article again as I thought I might be able to reference it in the post that I was considering writing.

    Much to my surprise, someone had made a comment on her article last night shortly after Whitney's death.

    And what made my jaw drop was the time that this person had made the comment...

    11:11

    Okay... This was the sign to me that I should indeed write my post about Whitney.




    It is going to take me awhile to locate all my material, then to organize it and my thoughts, and then try to write this post.

    So check back in a few days...

    Just one night before she passed away at the age of 48,
    Whitney Houston took to the stage to sing "Yes, Jesus Loves Me"
    at the Kelly Price & Friends pre-Grammy concert on February 10th.

    Watch the video below to see Houston's strong, and now eerie, performance.

    The singer passed on the eve of the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
    The singer was pronounced dead at 3:55 pm at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel, according to TMZ.
    A cause of death was not immediately known, and details are still emerging at this time.

    What I am going to tell you will probably shock you. I know it shocked me when I realized it, almost 14 years ago.

    It even has the potential of changing your life. It did mine.


    I had been listening to music all my life and never had a clue, until one day, one traumatic moment when I suddenly realized something.

    Something that changed my entire perspective of reality, and thus my entire life.

    That day was December 12, 1998.

    If you read my chapter My 11:11 Story that will explain what happened. Here is the beginning of it:

    I have always been one to experience what are referred to as "coincidences" and I never gave them much thought other than being neat occurrences. Never did it even cross my mind that they were anything more than just chance happenings. Even when I started to see 11:11 an unusual number of times on digital clocks did it enter my mind that it actually meant anything.

    I'm not sure exactly when I started to notice 11:11 but I know it was a few years before December of 1998. I was noticing it so often that I decided it must be my lucky number. I believe it was in 1997 that they were selling tickets to a Dream Home lottery in the building where I worked so I decided I would wait until November 11 (11/11) at 11:11 to buy my ticket. I did not win, but this just shows you that this number was having an affect on my life.

    Around the end of November 1998 I started working on my diagram of The Mind. It was on the morning of December 12, 1998 as I was just looking at my diagram that it suddenly dawned on me that I had drawn The Mind of God and The Way. That moment changed my life. It was then that I also realized that all the strange coincidences that I had been experiencing, especially of late, were not coincidences at all. I realized at that moment that this was possibly God's way of revealing Himself to me and of communicating with me.


    At this moment I KNEW that God was real. And that He was actually communicating with me.

    And it was shortly thereafter that I realized He was also communicating with other people as well.



    At the same time this was going on (my figuring out my diagram of The Mind - which also ended up being a diagram of God's Mind and a map of 'The Way', but I hadn't realized that at this point yet) I was also working as a Systems Analyst at the head office of a major financial institution working on the Y2K Project.

    I was also was deep into music. I was listening to a lot of music and learning how to play many songs, that were strangely inspiring me, on both the piano and guitar. I even wrote a half a dozen songs (the music, not the lyrics) for a Nova Scotia band that had an amazingly inspiring affect on me. (Still have those songs in my music cabinet.)

    The point is that my brain was in an extremely creative "zone" and it was producing amazing results.

    Then, on December 12, 1998, the day of my great epiphany, when I realized that God truly existed and my entire perspective of reality was forever changed, from this new perspective, I began to "see" things that I had never seen before, to hear things I had never heard before, and to realize things that I had never realized before.



    One of these things was the truth about music. The truth about what - and who - many of these songs were actually about.

    It was then that I realized that God was not only communicating with me (and with others through 11:11 and other "coincidences") but that God was also communicating with these musicians and songwriters, and that their songs were secretly about God or Jesus in some way, shape, or form.

    Some songs are about their "relationship" with God or Jesus, some written from God's or Jesus' perspective, many, many different variations, but having to do with God or Jesus in some way.

    What I do not know is how God is communicating with them. Is it through "coincidence" and such indirect ways, as it is with me, or is it in a more direct way? I do know that for some it is through 11:11 and coincidence, as evidenced by all the 11:11 music - album titles, song titles, etc - that I have documented in my Chapter 12 - Signs and Chapter 13 - 11:11, but I do not know if it is the same way for everyone.

    I do not know how or what He is communicating with these musicians. All I know is that He is. They have been "called."



    Now... This "relationship" between God/Jesus and these artists is difficult to explain, but easy to see when you read/listen to the words now knowing this truth.

    It has to do with LOVE.

    God is LOVE. Jesus is LOVE.

    Their relationship is about LOVE.

    But... NOT in the way that you would think...



    Here is the shocker...

    And perhaps the biggest secret/conspiracy of all time...

    (Your initial reaction will probably be to think that I must be deluded, but I ask you to bear with me and read what I have to say, and to look at the evidence that I am going to show you, because I believe that I can prove it.)



    Not only do many of these artists LOVE Jesus, but they are IN LOVE with Him.

    Yes, you read right... IN love.

    And they believe that Jesus is in love with them.

    "JESUS LOVES ME."



    But unfortunately, this perceived love affair has not gone well for many of them, some worse than others, depending upon their perception of it.

    They believe that Jesus has professed His love for them making them fall in love with Him, led them on, played with their hearts, and then He has betrayed this love and abandoned them, moving on to someone else, leaving them with broken hearts, minds, and shattered lives.

    Their relationship has been a roller coaster ride of emotional ups and downs, from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, from deep, romantic love, to intense jealousy and bitter anger, to utter despair and depression and heart-break, to forgiveness and pleading for His return, switching back and forth chaotically between all these emotions in a constant state of confusion, playing havoc with their hearts and minds, and resulting in the chaos of their lives. Remember... This is Jesus Christ after all.

    Many of these artists cannot cope. Many turn to drugs and alcohol. Many begin to exhibit bizarre and risqué behaviour. (Perhaps as an act of retaliation?) It has driven many into deep, deep depression. It has driven many into alcohol and drug addictions. It has driven many to the brink - even over the edge - of mental instability and break-down, and in some cases, to even attempt suicide.

    In fact, this love and this relationship have the characteristics of an addiction. Jesus is the drug and they are addicted to Him.

    Addiction is a primary, progressive, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over use of the substance, preoccupation with the substance, use of the substance despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking.

    Morse & Flavin (1992)



    And THAT (some variation of perspective) is what their songs are about. And THAT is what the majority of the songs you are listening to right now, and have been for decades, are really about.



    WHITNEY HOUSTON

    It is my belief that Whitney Houston was one of these artists who was profoundly emotionally affected by Jesus and completely "in love" with Him, and that the source of her "troubled" life was in fact the influence that God and Jesus were having on her life.

    And I am now going to present the evidence to prove it to you...


    Back in 1998 when "this" all started with me (when God/Jesus revealed His/Their existence to me and my entire perspective of reality was forever changed, and I began to see and hear things from this new perspective that I hadn't seen or heard before), this was also the time that this was also going on with many of these artists so because I was now connected to this new reality, I was connected to them and could "see" what they were experiencing, and what they were singing about, so I paid very close attention. (For example, Whitney Houston's CD My Love Is Your Love had just been released.)

    I saved magazines and taped television shows like the Grammys and Much Music videos and interviews. I have collected boxes and boxes of evidence over the past 14 years, which I have sorted through these past few days since Whitney's tragic death to find my information on her.





    The April 17, 2000 edition of People and the May 2000 edition of Jane magazines chronicling "Whitney's Troubled Times" both trying to figure out the cause of her increasingly "bizarre behaviour" (see People magazine cover above), and a page from the June 6, 2003 edition of People about Whitney and her family's trip to Israel ("It's home. It's home.") where they were baptised in the River Jordan.


    I am going to talk about these magazines a little later, but first I want to talk about Kathleen Frangeskos' blog article that I found a few days before Whitney's death which talks about her meeting Whitney on a Disney Cruise ship in 2001. (The article I mentioned earlier where the person had posted a comment at 11:11 the night of Whitney's death.)

    WHITNEY HOUSTON REALLY LOVES JESUS, AS SHE TOLD OPRAH AND ME...

    Watching Whitney on Oprah this week...was a testament to her faith and trust in Our Lord. You see, Whitney really does love Jesus, with her whole being. I did not learn this only from watching her on Oprah...but from meeting Whitney in person and talking about Jesus for 20 minutes.

    In 2001, we happened to both be on a Disney Cruise...and on one early afternoon, after winning "Disney Bingo", I collected my prizes and was sitting in the lounge sipping on a Bahama Mama, courtesy of Disney. As I gazed out the window and daydreamed, not realizing, suddenly behind me...where a hundred or so people once stood...was no one.

    I heard a voice say, "Excuse me, is that a Newport cigarette? Could I please have one"? I slowly turned around in my swivel chair and standing next to me was the beautiful Whitney Houston and husband Bobby Brown. At that moment...I was in shock and quickly looked around the room. It was empty, except for Whitney, Bobby, two security guards and myself.

    I said, "Are you two, who I think you are, you know what I mean"? She smiled and said, "Yes". I knew it was her, one of my favorite recording artists in the world...and looking down at her finger, was the same huge, beautiful engagement ring seen on her CD. Around her neck hung low, was an amazing cross...

    Seeing that beautiful cross on Whitney, easily allowed me to bring up Jesus and let her know...what a special person she was and that her voice was a gift from the LORD. I said, "He uses you to reach others" and I had a concrete example.

    In the year 2000, I was the President of a small Westchester, NY radio station and produced a program entitled "Seeking God Together". I needed a theme song for the show and I prayed about it. Both the Host, Patricia Ditrio and I, came up with the same song. It was entitled, "I Believe In You And Me" and we played it as an introduction to the program. I thought this is the perfect time to ask Whitney...did she mind me using her song? It also illustrated how God uses Whitney's voice and song to reach others in HIS work. Feeling happy and in shock talking with Whitney, I could not remember the name of the song. So I sang it...yes, that is correct...I sang to Whitney Houston. I said, "Do you recognize the song"? She laughed and said, "Bobby, isn't Kathleen so funny, of course I recognize the song, it's mine and I sang it".

    We all laughed. But for 20 minutes, we talked about how Jesus is both our best friend and Saviour. She had incredible faith. She loved Jesus and was completely devoted to HIM. In between our talk, I managed to get three kisses and hugs...because later on...I might have thought, "Gosh, I never got a hug or kiss".

    Regardless of what Whitney was going through at the time, her love of Jesus was evident and her commitment to HIM. I knew that Jesus would carry her through anything. Whitney was so down to earth, loving and sweet. She is one of God's angels... in her heart and voice. I kept Whitney in my prayers always... because she loved Jesus so much...and she was one of the nicest people that I had ever met... so humble and unassuming.

    I am proud of you Whitney and I love you!
    Warmest regards to you my friend...

    Love,
    Kathleen Frangeskos


    I don't think the fact that Whitney "loved" Jesus is in question. She was raised in a religious, church-going family, sang in the church's Gospel choir, starred as the wife in the movie 'The Preacher's Wife' - featuring her singing I Love The Lord, and professed her love and devotion to Him to stranger on a cruise ship. (Although, because of her drug and alcohol addictions and bizarre behaviour, some may be inclined to question it.)

    What will be difficult to do will be to persuade people to believe is that she was "in love" with Jesus, and that their perceived relationship and break-up was the source of her "troubled" life and self-destructive ways that utlimately and tragically resulted in her death.

    But I am hoping that I will be able to do just that. I have tried before without success, but this time I am going to go all out...

    I want to bring this reality to light, for one reason, because maybe - just maybe - this same tragic fate as Whitney's (and others before her) can be prevented from happening to somebody else, because I can see the exact same situation continuing to happen with several other musicians. (I will give an example of someone in particular that I am thinking of later, although there are several.)



    I will now discuss the amazing piece of evidence that I have...


    The magazines that I showed above were published in April and May of 2000 when Whitney's behaviour was becoming increasingly more and more erratic and bizarre, and these articles were discussing exactly this and trying to figure out why.

    What is very strange is that just two months prior, in February of 2000, Whitney told the entire world exactly what her problem was.

    Yet not a mention of it was made at the time in the press, or in Internet discussion groups (at least that I ever heard or read), and even today I have searched the Internet and cannot find a single reference to it anywhere, except in my own Chapter 12 - Signs where I revealed this 12 years ago in 2000.

    The incident occurred during the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2000.

    It happened during Whitney's acceptance speech for her winning in the category of 'Best Female R&B Performance' for her song It's Not Right But It's Okay.

    She had the attention of millions of viewers around the world. All eyes and ears were focused on her.

    And she told us exactly what the source of her troubles was.


    Was I the only one who heard it?

    Surely not.

    People must have heard it. Did they not think it was a strange thing to say? Strange even for Whitney? Why didn't the media pounce on it and question it? Why didn't they ask, "What did she mean by that?" Why was not more made of this odd statement?

    In the magazine I saved and show above, the April 17, 2000 edition of People, the article about "Whitney's Troubled Times" even mentioned her acceptance speech, but did NOT mention her strange statement. And ironically this was an article discussing her erratic behaviour and trying to figure out the reasons behind it. They obviously heard her acceptance speech, so how did they miss this crucial piece of information?

    This is what the People article said:

    The avalance of bad press has diverted attention from the Grammy Houston took home on Feb. 23 for her dance hit single It's Not Right But It's Okay. With her sixth Grammy and her first since 1993, Houston has maintained enviable sales despite her woes; her lastest album, My Love Is Your Love, sold 9 million world-wide. From the podium she gushed to her hubby, "Honey, this one's for you, the original R&B King. I love you."


    Thank God I taped this program.

    When I decided to write this post, and went through my boxes of collected evidence, this tape was the main thing I was looking for. Because it was in 2000, it was recorded on a VCR tape. So I dug out the VCR player, played the tape, and used my digital camera to make a video of the program while it was playing on the tv screen. Then I downloaded the video to my computer, and used my Windows Movie Maker to create a movie of it, then uploaded it to YouTube. A convoluted process but I hope worth it. The quality is not the greatest, because it is a VCR tape recorded 12 years ago, but it is not that bad.

    I also created two versions... Just before Whitney won the Grammy Award, she sang I Learned From The Best. Since this song contains lyrical evidence to support my claim - ("I learned the way to break a heart, I learned from the best, I learned from you"; "You broke my world in two"; "You shattered my world with your good-bye") - I made one version which includes her singing this song, followed by her entire acceptance speech; and a shorter version, which includes only the portion of her acceptance speech that is the piece of evidence that I am referring to.


    The following video is the shorter version which includes only the revealing part of her acceptance speech:






    This video is the longer version which includes Whitney's performance of I Learned From The Best followed by her winning the Grammy Award for 'Best Female R&B Performance' and her entire acceptance speech:





    "To my Lord and Saviour Jesus
    Whom I love and I can't let go of"

    "Can't let go of" ???

    What does that mean?

    Why would Whitney want to "let go" of Jesus?

    Can you explain that? Can you come up with any reason why she would say that?


    The reason is exactly what I have just explained to you...

    Whitney was in love with Jesus. He "broke her heart" and "shattered her world" ('I Learned From The Best'), yet she was still completely and totally in love with Him and could not "let go" of Him, holding on to the hope that He would someday return to her. Whitney was addicted to Jesus.

    Here is another of Whitney's songs that tells us this truth:

    (Note: "I can't let go of you" = "I won't give you up")

    Until You Come Back

    I lost my heart
    A long time ago
    You made me feel
    Like no one had before
    Boy you made me love you
    Then you walked out the door
    See I will not rest
    Until you say I am forever yours

    And boy I won't stop at nothing
    I won't give you up
    And you've gotta feel something I know
    I will not love again
    Until you come back
    Come back to my arms
    'Til you come back to me baby
    Until you come back (to me)

    I don't care how long
    It's not important to me
    Don't care how far
    Love's never too far for me
    I just might be crazy
    When it comes to my heart
    But I cannot rest
    Until the day we're no longer apart

    And boy I won't stop at nothing
    I won't get you up
    And you've gotta feel sometimes I know
    I will not love again
    Until you come back
    Come back to my arms
    'Til you come back to me baby
    Until you come back (to me)

    Nobody plays with my heart
    You can't walk away from it all
    You can run but your heart cannot hide
    'Cause it knows you belong in my life

    And boy I won't stop at nothing
    I won't get you up
    And you've gotta feel sometimes I know
    I will not love again
    Until you come back
    Come back to my arms
    'Til you come back to me baby
    Until you come back (to me)
    Come on home
    Come on home to me



    Just this morning new information has emerged regarding Whitney's last hours to support the truth of what I am saying:

    "I'm gonna go see Jesus... I want to see Jesus."

    Whitney Houston Death: Did the Icon Have a Premonition About Her Tragic End?
    Posted on Feb 15th 2012 12:15PM by Contessa Gayles

    As fans, friends and family mourn the death of Whitney Houston, new details are emerging about the legend's last days before her untimely passing on February 11. According to TMZ, Houston had a premonition about her own death just hours before her body was discovered in the bathroom of a Beverly Hills hotel room.

    A source claims Whitney "really wanted to see Jesus" in her final days, adding that the singer turned to spirituality as she sensed her time was drawing near. Houston allegedly spent a great deal of time quoting Bible passages, singing hymns and engaging in "intense conversations about Jesus Christ and the afterlife" with her close friends and family. "I'm gonna go see Jesus ... I want to see Jesus," she reportedly told members of her inner circle.

    Whitney, who grew up in the Baptist church singing gospel music, performed for what turned out to be the last time alongside R&B singer Kelly Price at Tru nightclub in Hollywood. They dueted on the gospel tune 'Yes Jesus Loves Me.'

    The next morning, Whitney was reportedly discussing a Bible passage about John the Baptist and Jesus when she smiled and said, "You know, he's so cool ... I really want to see that Jesus." This was supposedly just hours before her death.

    Could Whitney sense her time was coming, or does the report lend credence to suicide speculation?

    Whitney Houston Had Premonition About Death
    2/15/2012 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

    Whitney Houston told friends she "really wanted to see Jesus" in the days before her death ... and claimed she had a feeling the end was near for her ... this according to several of Whitney's friends.

    TMZ has learned ... Whitney had been very spiritual in her final days ... quoting the bible, singing hymns and engaging in intense conversations about Jesus Christ and the afterlife with her close friends and family members.

    We're told .... on Friday , one day after she performed, "Yes Jesus Loves Me" at Tru nightclub in Hollywood, Whitney told one of her friends, "I'm gonna go see Jesus ... I want to see Jesus."

    Another source tells us ... Whitney had been telling friends she "felt like her time was coming" ... and wanted to make sure she spent her time praising her lord and savior whenever she could.

    Unfortunately, Whitney's premonition came true.


    UPDATE

    We're told the bible passages Whitney was quoting on the morning of her death were Matthew 3:13 through 17 ... referencing the baptism of Jesus. The passage goes:

    Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

    Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.

    As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

    The above information shows that Whitney's life was totally consumed with Jesus in the last days of her life.

    What I have tried to show in this post is that this was not true only during the end of her life, but it has been true for a very long time.

    I am truly sorry for Whitney's years of broken-hearted anguish and that her life tragically ended the way it did as a result of it.

    I do believe it could have been prevented if people were aware of what was actually going on in Whitney's mind and life, and if they were aware that the same thing is going on in many musicians minds and lives this very day. It is pervasive in the music industry, in fact, I believe the music industry is founded on this reality, but it is also happening to many outside the music business as well, as evidenced by those experiencing what has been termed the '11:11 Phenomenon'.

    If people were aware that God and Jesus are "real" - that they truly exist - and that they are actually communicating with people, things would be very different in our world, don't you think?


    I believe it is the time for people be made aware of this. I believe that many musicians who this is also happening to have reached the point - and beyond - of frustration where they just want something to change. They want God and Jesus to stop what they are doing and how they are doing it, and to try another method - a more explicit and direct method - one where there can be no more misunderstanding or misinterpretation of their intentions.


    As news of Whitney's death began to quickly spread around the world, people used the Internet to express their initial emotions and reactions to her death. Here are a few Twitter posts that caught my attention which, to me, show this frustation with God and Jesus:











    Yes. It is time for the truth to come to light. And for things to change.








    Tyler Perry: "Whitney Houston loved The Lord."









    Earlier in this post, I said that one of the reasons why I wanted to bring this to light was because I could see/hear that this same situation has been happening for decades - and continues to happen - to many other musicians, and that perhaps by bringing it to light, it might just help to prevent another tragedy as just happened with Whitney (and many before her). And I said that I would talk about one person in particular who I was thinking of.

    One of the reasons that I am going to talk about this person is because I can see her walking in Whitney's shoes, following the same path, and for the same reason.

    This person is Rihanna.



    On February 12 - the day after Whitney's death on February 11 - the 54th Grammy Awards took place.

    One of the performers was Rihanna, and it was this performance that has inspired me to write this.

    Rihanna has been in the news many times making headlines for her risqué behaviour, and her drinking, drugs, and partying lifestyle. She appears to be another "Good Girl Gone Bad."

    Just as Bobby Brown has been attributed to have been the cause of Whitney's "descent into darkness", many have blamed Chris Brown for being the cause of Rihanna's. (Interesting Brown connection.)

    But, just as I have shown that the source of Whitney's problems was actually God/Jesus, I am going to show that the very same is true for Rihanna.



    But before I begin, I think it would make what I am going to say more credible and believable to first establish the fact that Rihanna even believes in God.

    Here are some of Rihanna's tweets that I found which confirm that she does:
















    One of the tell-tale signs of a musician's connection to Jesus is their wearing Cross jewelry as the Cross is a symbol of Jesus.

    For example, from the blog that I talked about earlier about the woman who met Whitney on the cruise ship:

    "Around her neck hung low, was an amazing cross... Seeing that beautiful cross on Whitney, easily allowed me to bring up Jesus and let her know what a special person she was and that her voice was a gift from the LORD."

    Rihanna came to the Grammys wearing:

    http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2012/02/13/rihanna-grammys-2012fashion-2012-armani/
    The collective sound of jaws dropping could be heard as Rihanna stepped onto the red carpet at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 12. The Barbadian singer, who was nominated for multiple awards and performed during the show, flaunted her fabulous figure in a black custom-made backless Armani gown with a dangerously low plunging neckline!

    She was also wearing a Cross necklace.

    The Cross appeared again during her performance with Coldplay as she can be seen holding it in her hand.

    It could be argued that her wearing a Cross necklace does not necessarily mean that it holds any symbolic meaning to her - it could just be a piece of jewelry; however, I believe that her holding it in her hand proves that it does indeed hold some sort of significance to her.

    (Another example of how the Cross is of important symbolic significance to Rihanna will be shown later.)


                 



    The song Rihanna performed at the Grammys was We Found Love (Calvin HARRIS).

    (She then sang Princess of China with Coldplay (whose lyrics are also "telling") followed by Coldplay singing Paradise (and I have previously discussed Coldplay's connection to this).

    Anyway, there has been a lot of controversy surrounding this song We Found Love and its music video, leaving some to wonder if they contain "hidden messages" and if Rihanna is trying to "send a subliminal message."

    15 most telling moments in Rihanna's 'We Found Love'
    By Chris Witherspoon
    5:03 AM on 10/22/2011

    Rihanna's new video for "We Found Love" from her upcoming album Talk that Talk is generating a lot of buzz, and leaving many wondering if there is a subliminal message she is trying to send.

    The mini-movie lasts a little over more than 4 minutes, and in it we see Rihanna take on a good girl gone bad persona, all the while enjoying a turbulent romance with a Chris Brown look-a-like. Actor Dudley O'Shaughnessy has a striking resemblance to the current Chris Brown of 2011 with a similar complexion, bleached blond hair, tattoos and gaunt features.

    In the video we see Rihanna drinking alcohol, doing drugs, having sex, fighting and falling in and out love.

    There are several scenes in "We Found Love" that could have a hidden meaning and possibly reveal Rihanna's true feelings on her past romance with Chris Brown and how she feels about her ex today.


    Even Rihanna herself says that this video is "probably one of the deepest videos I’ve ever done":
    justjared.buzznet.com/2011/10/19/rihanna-we-found-love-video-premiere/
    “We’ve never done a video like this before,” Rihanna tweeted about the clip. “This is probably one of the deepest videos I’ve ever done. It’s all about love and love being like a drug... you definitely get that from this. The good feeling of it and the dangers of it. That’s what this video is about.”


    So... Do the song and video contain "hidden and subliminal" messages?

    The answer is YES.

    For your reference, here is the video and here are the words to the song:

    We Found Love

    It's like you're screaming, and no one can hear
    You almost feel ashamed
    That someone could be that important
    That without them, you feel like nothing
    No one will ever understand how much it hurts
    You feel hopeless; like nothing can save you
    And when it's over, and it's gone
    You almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back
    So that you could have the good

    Yellow diamonds in the light
    Now we’re standing side by side
    As your shadow crosses mine
    What it takes to come alive

    It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
    But I’ve gotta let it go

    We found love in a hopeless place
    We found love in a hopeless place
    We found love in a hopeless place
    We found love in a hopeless place

    Shine a light through an open door
    Love a life I will divide
    Turn away 'cause I need you more
    Feel the heartbeat in my mind

    It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
    But I’ve gotta let it go



    On the surface, the song is about a girl who has fallen in love with someone, but the relationship is a tumultuous, destructive, and hopeless one.

    The song's music video shows Rihanna in an extremely emotionally volatile love-hate relationship that spirals downward into addiction and violence, heart-break, and depression.


    "It's the way I'm feeling I just can't deny
    But I've gotta let it go"


    Sound familiar?

    "To my Lord and Saviour Jesus
    Whom I love and I can't let go of"



    Yes... Rihanna is having the same experience and relationship with God/Jesus that Whitney did, and she is perceiving it and experiencing it the same destructive way Whitney did. She is walking in Whitney's shoes, following the same path.


    “This is probably one of the deepest videos I’ve ever done.
    It’s all about love and love being like a drug..."

    Just like Whitney, it is this love/relationship with Jesus that is (like) a drug, and she is "addicted" to Him.

    This "addiction" is confirmed on another song from the same album 'Talk That Talk':

    Drunk On Love

    I feel like I'm a hopeless romantic
    I can't help falling in love
    I fiend for love
    I want it, I crave it
    I just can't get enough
    ...
    I'm so intoxicated
    I love the way you taste
    On my lips, when we kiss
    You got me so addicted
    So much I can't resist
    Falling into your arms



    And THIS is the "hidden and subliminal" message that Rihanna is revealing in her song and music video.



    The Song

    "We found love in a hopeless place"

    Rihanna is saying that she is in love with this person (Jesus).

    She is also saying that they found love in a "hopeless place". This could mean that the relationship is hopeless but she specifically says hopeless place.

    Rihanna and Jesus exist in two different worlds. Rihanna in the physical world and Jesus in the non-physical world. The place inbetween where their relationship exists is this "hopeless place".

    That is why she says, "Feel the heartbeat in my MIND" and not in her BODY because it is not a physical relationship but a mental/spiritual one.

    But a REAL one, none-the-less, meaning that it is real - not imagined. (Speaking from experience.)

    Because their relationship exists in this "hopeless place", she feels the relationship itself is therefore "hopeless" and that she's "gotta let it go".



    Bear with me... This will all be more evident in the video... ("Seeing Is Believing")



    The Video

    (Note: The following pictures were taken as screen prints from the video referenced earlier.)

    There is a lot of symbolism in this video to show that the person that Rihanna is having this turbulent love-hate, addictive relationship with is God/Jesus.



    As shown earlier, the Cross - which is a symbol of Jesus - holds some significance to Rihanna.

    In this video, Rihanna is wearing Cross earrings, thus connecting Jesus to this video.








    I am sure that when one is making a music video, especially one where symbolism is a major component, all the details of the video are carefully planned, including the jewelry that is worn.

    Therefore, Rihanna's wearing Cross earrings must have been purposely done for a reason.

    To confirm that this was a planned part of the video, look closely at the two pictures above.

    She is wearing different earrings, yet they are both Crosses.



    Jesus is also connected to this video in another symbolic way.

    The Cross is a symbol of Jesus. Another symbol of Jesus/Christianity is the Fish.




    Although part of the video is shot in a Fish and Chips shop, it does seem a bit strange when a shot of a fish hanging on the wall appears for a brief second for no apparent reason.

    I believe the hidden reason is to represent another clever symbolic reference to Jesus.

    "The Talking Bass"... "Talk That Talk"







    God is also portrayed in this video using the symbolism of Nature... Lightning, flowers, a field of grass, and clouds are used to represent God.

    And as shown in the following pictures, Rihanna is alone in her room with God having an intimately personal and loving relationship with Him.















    The above video pictures represent the loving and passionate side of her relationship with God/Jesus - the "highest of highs."

    However, as I said earlier regarding these musicians:

    Their relationship has been a roller coaster ride of emotional ups and downs, from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, from deep, romantic love, to intense jealousy and bitter anger, to utter despair and depression and heart-break, to forgiveness and pleading for His return, switching back and forth chaotically between all these emotions in a constant state of confusion, playing havoc with their hearts and minds, and resulting in the chaos of their lives. Remember... This is Jesus Christ after all.

    Many of these artists cannot cope. Many turn to drugs and alcohol. Many begin to exhibit bizarre and risqué behaviour. (Perhaps as an act of retaliation?) It has driven many into deep, deep depression. It has driven many into alcohol and drug addictions. It has driven many to the brink - even over the edge - of mental instability and break-down, and in some cases, to even attempt suicide. In fact, this love and this relationship have the characteristics of an addiction.

    This video also portrays ALL these negative aspects of Rihanna's relationship with Jesus - cast by a Chris Brown look-alike.



    As I said earlier when discussing the meaning of "We found love in a hopeless place", the relationship between these musicians and God/Jesus is not a physical one but a mental/spiritual one.

    This is symbolically portrayed in the video with Rihanna wearing a t-shirt with the word ESP on it.

    ESP stands for Extra Sensory Perception which "involves reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but through the MIND", and it deals with the paranormal and non-physical world.






    Another representation of God in this video - a major symbol of God throughout history - is the EYE of God, and Rihanna's emotionally turbulent, tormented, and "crazy" relationship with Him is symbolised by her being portrayed inside the EYE of God / the MIND of God:











    We Found Love
    It's like you're screaming, and no one can hear
    You almost feel ashamed
    That someone could be that important
    That without them, you feel like nothing
    No one will ever understand how much it hurts
    You feel hopeless; like nothing can save you






    As I said earlier, one reason why I wanted to write this was because I can see that Rihanna is walking in Whitney's shoes, following in her footsteps.

    And not only Rihanna.

    It is my hope that by bringing this to light, another tragedy like Whitney's can be prevented.

    I initially only planned on writing about Whitney, however, after watching Rihanna's Grammy performance the night after Whitney's death, I really felt that I needed to include her.



    While watching the music video for Rihanna's We Found Love, I found one particular scene very shocking, but it provided confirmation that this connection that I see between Whitney and Rihanna is real, and it gave me confidence that I am supposed to be writing this.

    On February 11, Whitney Houston died.

    She was found submerged in her bathtub.

    That is why this scene in the video is so disturbing.

    Too much of a "coincidence" to be just a "coincidence" don't you think?







    Hopefully this post will help bring this truth to the attention of the world.

    It is not something that I have not discussed before, in fact, this is what the beginning of my Chapter 12 - which has been online since 1999, so 13 years now - is about.

    Also, several of my 'Posts' that I have written over the years since I began writing these Journal of Events chapters in 2004 deal with this subject.

    But hopefully the evidence that I have provided in this post will be more convincing, and will be read and considered by many people around the world, and that it will generate much thought and discussion which could lead to great and amazing changes in our world...

    Some lyrics that I have chosen from these songs - which confirm what I am telling you:


    1. WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN
    I been knocking on the door that holds the throne
          (Acts 7:49 - Heaven is my throne... saith the Lord.)
          ("Knock, knock, knockin' on Heaven's door" Bob Dylan)
    I been looking for the MAP that leads me home (Heaven)
    There ain't no one hearing the bugle blowin'
          (Joel 2:1 - Blow ye the trumpet in Zion... for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand)
    Where're the eyes, the eyes with the will to see
          (Ezekiel 12:2 - Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not;
          they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.)

    Where's the love that has not forsaken me
          (Deuteronomy 31:6 - For the Lord thy God... will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.)
    Where's the spirit that'll reign, reign over me
          (Revelation 11:15 - The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.)
    Where's the promise from sea to the shining sea
          (2 Peter 3:12-13 - Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,
          wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved,
          and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
          Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

          1 John 2:25 - And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.)


    2. EASY MONEY
    There's nothing to it mister, you won't hear a sound
    When your whole world comes tumbling down
    Got me a date on the far shore, it's bright and sunny


    3. SHACKLED AND DRAWN
    What's a poor boy to do in a world gone wrong
    What's a poor boy to do but keep singing this song
    (I want everybody to stand up)
    (I want everybody to stand up and be counted tonight)
          (2 Thessalonians 1 - ...that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God)
    (You know we got to pray together)


    4. JACK OF ALL TRADES
    I'll take the work that God provides
    I'll harvest your crops when they're ripe and grown
          (Matthew 13:38-39 - The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
          the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.)

    When the blue sky breaks, feels like the world's gonna change
    We'll start caring for each other like Jesus said that we might
    There's a new world coming, I can see the light


    5. DEATH TO MY HOMETOWN
    But just as sure as the hand of God, they brought death to my hometown
          (Isaiah 13:9 - Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate:
          and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.)

    So listen up, my sonny boy, be ready for when they come
    For they'll be returning sure as the rising sun (rising sun = Son (Jesus) that has risen)
          (Matthew 25:31 - When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory)


    6. THIS DEPRESSION
    Baby, I've been down, but never this down
    I've been lost, but never this lost
    This is my confession, I need your heart
    In this depression, I need your heart

    Baby, I've been low, but never this low
    I've had my faith shaken, but never hopeless
    This is my confession, I need your heart
    In this depression, I need your heart

    And I've always been strong, but I've never felt so weak
    And all my prayers have gone for nothing
    I've been without love, but never forsaken
    Now the morning sun, the morning sun is breaking


    7. WRECKING BALL
    So if you got the guts mister, yeah if you've got the balls
    If you think it's your time, then step to the line, and bring on your wrecking ball
          (Daniel 8:19 ...for at the time appointed the end shall be.)
    Because tonight all the dead are here, so bring on your wrecking ball
    Yeah, we know that come tomorrow, none of this will be here
    And your game has been decided and you're burning the clock down
          (2 Peter 3:10 - 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.)



    8. YOU'VE GOT IT
    Well, now listen up, your reckless love is precious so don't waste it
    Can't tell you what they made it of, but I know it when I taste it
    Baby you've got it, yeah, baby you've got it
    You've got it in your bones and blood, yeah, you're real as real ever was


    9. ROCKY GROUND
    Rise up shepherd, rise up (Psalm 23:1 - The LORD is my shepherd)
    Your flock has roamed far from the hills
    The stars have faded, the sky is still
    The angels are shouting "Glory Hallelujah"

    Forty days and nights of rain have washed this land
    Jesus said the money changers in this temple will not stand
    Find your flock, get them to higher ground
    Flood waters rising and we're Caanan bound

    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    We've been traveling over rocky ground, rocky ground
    (I'm a soldier!)
          (2 Timothy 2:3 - Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.)

    Tend to your flock or they will stray
    We'll be called for our service come Judgment Day
    Before we cross that river wide
    Blood on our hands will come back on us twice

    Rise up shepherd, rise up
    Your flock has roamed far from the hills
    Stars have faded, the sky is still
    Sun's in the heavens and a new day's rising

    You use your muscle and your mind and you pray your best
    That your best is good enough, the Lord will do the rest
    You raise your children and you teach 'them to walk straight and sure
    You pray that hard times, hard times, come no more
    You try to sleep, you toss and turn, the bottom's dropping out
    Where you once had faith now there's only doubt
    You pray for guidance, only silence now meets your prayers
    The morning breaks, you awake but no one's there


    10. LAND OF HOPE AND DREAMS
    Grab your ticket and your suitcase, thunder's rolling down this track
    Well you don't know where you're going now, but you know you won't be back
    Meet me in a land of hope and dreams (Heaven)

    Well, this train carries saints and sinners
    This train carries losers and winners
    This train carries whores and gamblers
    This train carries lost souls

    I said, this train, dreams will not be thwarted
    This train, faith will be rewarded
    This train, hear the steel wheels singing
    This train, bells of freedom ringing

    Come on this train
    People get ready
    You don't need no ticket
    Oh, you gotta do this
    Just get onboard
    Onboard this train (this train, now)
    People get ready
    You don't need no ticket (oh now, no you don't)
    You don't need no ticket
    You just get onboard (people get ready)
    You just thank the Lord (people get ready)


    11. WE ARE ALIVE
    There's a cross up yonder up on Calvary Hill
    There's a slip of blood on a silver knife
    There's a graveyard kid down below
    Where at night did come to life
          (Matthew 28:5-6 - And the angel said, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen)

    And alone in the blackness of my grave
    Alone I'd been left to die
    Then I heard voices calling all around me
    The earth rose above me, my eyes filled with sky
    We are alive
    And though our bodies lie alone here in the dark
    Our souls and spirits rise
          (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 - For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
          and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,
          to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.)





    EVERY song is about God/Jesus, and MOST are about the Second Coming of Christ/Judgment Day.



    As are many of the songs we are currently listening to and have been listening to for decades, yet the vast majority of the general public is oblivious to this truth, as evidenced by this Review of Wrecking Ball. Not ONE mention is made of the religious inferences in these songs, and it appears that the author is not even aware of them, and as I have just shown you, THAT is exactly what they are ALL about: stereogum.com/955151/premature-evaluation-bruce-springsteen-wrecking-ball/franchises/premature-evaluation/

    And here is another review - a "track by track" review - where the author discusses each of the songs on the album, just as I have done above: www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/cdreviews/9087107/Bruce-Springsteens-new-album-Wrecking-Ball-track-by-track-review.html

    Regarding Rocky Ground, the reviewer does notice a religious connection saying, "lyrics evoke biblical language", and he comments that the music in Land of Hope and Dreams has a "nu-gospel quality." But that is the extent of the religious connections that he makes.

    Also regarding Land of Hope and Dreams, the reviewer says:

    "No one else could sing a cliché like “This train carries saints and sinners” and still sound not just like they mean it, but that they are reminding us of something vital."
    But that is the point... It is NOT a "cliché".

    www.rollingstone.com/music/news/exclusive-bruce-springsteen-explains-his-experimental-new-album-20120217
    "This is as direct a record as I ever made," Springsteen tells Rolling Stone.

    And that is why the true message of these songs is missed.




    (And BTW Mr. Springsteen... I have that MAP that you are looking for.)

    1108) February 24, 2012    Welcome to Mooseport - "Show Me The Way"

    Continuing from yesterday...

    I turned on the tv today and a movie that I hadn't seen before was just starting, so I clicked on Information to see what it was about. It was called 'Welcome to Mooseport' and Ray Romano was in it, so I thought it might be good to watch.





    At the very beginning of the movie, Ray is driving a truck with the name HARRISON on the side and he drives to a store with a big HARRISON sign above the door. So right away I see the HARRIS connection to me and wonder what is going to be in this movie that I supposed to see.




    Ray Romano plays Harold "Handy" Harrison, a hardware store-owner in Mooseport, Maine and Gene Hackman plays a retired US President who returns to his hometown where they run against each other for mayor: www.imdb.com/title/tt0361925/

    I watch the movie for a little while, and then go do some other things. When I come back to the living room, the tv is still on and the movie is still playing.

    I immediately hear, "Show me the way." (Gene Hackman says this to Ray Romano at the beginning of a golf game they play together.)

    So apparently it wasn't what I was supposed to SEE but what I was supposed to HEAR. :)

    1110) February 28, 2012    AWAKE

    Speaking of "metaphysical "waking up" metaphors" ...



    When "this" first happened to me back in 1998 - when I "woke up" so to speak - I likened all the "coincidences" - like 11:11 - that were happening to me as "clues" (given to us by a higher power - God) to be followed, as a detective trying to figure out a mystery.


    Now we have a televison show that is about - literally - this.

    AWAKE is a new NBC tv series beginning March 1, 2012 about a police detective who lives in two realities in parallel worlds, and sees number coincidences (i.e. 611) as "clues" which he follows to solve his cases:




    upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/2d/AwakeNBCLogo.jpg


    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Awake_(TV_series)
    Plot
    Police detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) is newly returned to work after being in a car crash along with his wife Hannah (Laura Allen) and his son Rex (Dylan Minnette). After the crash Britten discovers that every time he goes to sleep he switches between two realities, one in which his wife died in the crash and one in which his son died. In the reality where his wife is alive he is partnered with rookie Efrem Vega (Wilmer Valderrama) and is seeing a confrontational department-recommended psychiatrist Dr Lee (B.D. Wong). His wife has redecorated the house and begins pushing him to move in an apparent effort to move past their son's death. In the reality in which his son is alive, Britten maintains his long time partner Isaiah "Bird" Freeman (Steve Harris) and sees a more nurturing psychologist, Dr. Evans (Cherry Jones). His son, previously a football player, has recently returned to playing tennis, and is coached by Hannah's former doubles partner Tara (Michaela McManus). Britten remains unsure which of the two realities, if either, is real, and begins to worry he is losing his sanity when details begin to cross over between the two.


    If you live in the U.S. you can go to the NBC site www.nbc.com/awake and watch the full episode preview (video not available outside the U.S.). If you live outside the U.S. just search for 'Awake Trailers' and watch some of those. The actual series begins in a couple of days on March 1.




             


             




    Are you AWAKE?





    And you don't think they (the creator, writers, etc. of the show) know about this 11:11 Phenomenon?

    Of course they do. They even tell you this themselves. Hidden in plain sight...











    1111) February 28, 2012    SHOW THEM THE WAY

    "SHOW ME THE WAY" (including my MAP showing 'The Way') seems to be a major message to me of late (Posts 1105, 1107, 1108, 1109, and now 1111).

    I wondered what my Post #1111 would be about.

    I have always known it was major - since it happened back on December 12, 1998 (see My 11:11 Story) - but perhaps it is even more major than I thought.


    One of my FB friends just posted this on her FB. (Because she is my FB friend, it appears in my FB.)

    SHOWING YOU 'THE WAY'






    1112) February 29, 2012    AND WARN THEM (Ezekiel 33:7)

    I have many posts showing how my name HARRIS (some variation of it) has been connected to several tragedies that have occurred. Today another one has happened. I believe it is connected to the devastation that is to come regarding the 'End Times' (December 21, 2012?) and a warning to everyone regarding that upcoming event.


           

           



    This EF4 tornado hit Harrisburg in the early hours of the morning when everyone was asleep...NOT 'AWAKE'.

    The line of tornados swept across the midwest killing 12 people, injuring hundreds, and completely destroying everything in its path.

    The tornados occurred on February 29 and 29 means "crash" as I have discussed before. (I wondered what "crash" event might occur today.)

    The tornados occurred on February 29 - which is Leap Day - a "rare" day, and they occurred in the winter which is apparently a "rare" event.

    Massive storm system weakens after 12 deaths
    By the CNN Wire Staff
    updated 7:09 AM EST, Thu March 1, 2012

    The death toll from the enormous storm system that plowed through the Midwest and spawned more tornadoes as it moved east was at 12 late Wednesday, authorities said.

    Hardest hit was Harrisburg, Illinois, a town that was thrashed by a pre-dawn EF4 killer tornado that packed 170 mph winds. Six people were killed in the southern Illinois city, many were injured or left with harrowing stories like Justin Hicks.

    "When we woke up half the roof was coming off the house," said Hicks. "We managed to get the small children in the closet, and about the time the small children were in the closet my wife and I noticed the walls separating from the house." Hicks' home was destroyed but he says it could have been much worse. "We're very lucky to be alive," he said. " It happened so fast. I woke up to a chaos, and I'm sure a lot of people woke up to chaos. I wasn't expecting it to be that bad..."

    Solar Flare Big Enough To Cause Catastrophe On Earth Called Surprisingly Likely
    First Posted: 03/ 1/2012 11:46 am Updated: 03/ 1/2012 12:09 pm
    An aurora borealis may be beautiful, but can there be too much of a good thing? A new study published in the journal Space Weather analyzed the frequency of the solar storms that cause auroras and found that there's a one in eight chance that by 2020 the Earth will be affected by a major solar flare.

    The risk is far greater than previously thought...


    December 21, 2012?



    (Note: After I posted this I checked to see if it posted ok and I noticed the counter was 212 - which connects to December 21/12.)






    (March 5, 2012)
    spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=05&month=03&year=2012
    STRONG SOLAR ACTIVITY: Solar activity is now high. Big sunspot AR1429, which emerged on March 2nd, is crackling with strong flares. The strongest so far, an X1-class eruption, occured just ths morning, March 5th at 0413 UT. The explosion also hurled a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) into space. The expanding cloud will probably deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on March 6th or 7th.


    (March 7, 2012)
    spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=07&month=03&year=2012
    MAJOR SOLAR FLARE: Big sunspot AR1429 has unleashed another major flare. This one is the strongest yet, an X5-class eruption on March 7th at 00:28 UT. This eruption hurled a bright CME into space. First-look data from STEREO-B are not sufficient to determine if the cloud is heading for Earth. Our best guess is "probably, yes, but not directly toward Earth." A glancing blow to our planet's magnetosphere is possible on March 8th or 9th.


    (Also on March 7, 2012)
    Email received from Spaceweather.com. It is very significant that I received this email at 11:11... Another "clue" pointing to December 21, 2012.

    (How? Read my Chapter 13 - 11:11.)
