WHO TO BLAME FOR THE 19 DEAD FIREFIGHTERS?
July 10, 2013
We heard about the 19 dead firefighters at the same time the Supreme Court was rendering its decision on same-sex marriage. Call me crazy but why did Sodom and Gomorrah being destroyed by fire because of homosexuality come to my mind? Luke 17:28-30 says: Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot, they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.
Did my thought process have confirmation the next day when the headlines “‘Dark day’ after deaths of 19 Ariz. Firefighters” was placed by our local Statesman Journal carefully above the article, “Support for gay marriage hits high after ruling, poll shows?” One of the sure signs of the last days is the unification of Christianity with obvious evil and the devices of Satan. Is its reference to “dark day” anything like the “last days”/end time events in the bible – events that have rapidly favored normalizing the sodomites? We seem to be in an unstable and volatile world in a constant state of rapid change with databases, biometric, constant surveillance, no privacy, DNA technology, dark secrets covered up by the biased liberal media and a fraudulent voting system causing creation to groan and travail.
Contrary to the spurious prognostication of some Americans who say there is going to be a ‘great revival’ in the Christian church in the last days, in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, the Bible says, “Let no man deceive you by any means for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Readers will recall after Barack Obama was elected president of the U.S., he was called the Messiah and others have referred to him as the anti-Christ.
Countless evil spirits gathered at the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus in an attempt to destroy Him when He came to this world the first time. We are seeing the failure of leadership in every field – government, politics, science, education, military and entertainment. Since the educators cannot control even their own campuses, how are they going to supply leadership for the world? There seems to be no one to lead us out of this moral morass. We are living in some very difficult times – perhaps the worst in history. There was a time when children were considered a blessing but in this day and age, parents often consider their children to be burdens. (Psalm 127:3)
I try not to preach too much in my articles but it’s hard to ignore such scriptures in Jude such as verse 7, “Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” And in v. 12 it says the “hungry sheep look up and are not fed.” What a picture of the apostate in the pulpit. These men generally speak on current events every Sunday. They pick up something out of the newspaper or something they have seen on television and that becomes their subject for the coming Lord’s Day. However, we do have a few patriot pastors to which we can pay tribute. The minor prophets in the Bible are often neglected; therefore, most people probably don’t even know there is a chapter called “Jude” located just before Revelation.
LIVING IN PERILOUS TIMES
While there are still some great kids out there, disobedience to parents is another characteristic of the last days. Many children are rejecting parental authority and even killing their parents. Betrayal by our own government and blasphemy seem to be running rampant. While there are far too many examples possible to describe this blasphemy, never before has there been such a direct attack against true Christianity and the Scripture as we have been experiencing.
Then we have the entertainment industry and sports events to keep us ignorant. Besides supporting Barack Obama, the very popular T.V. icon Oprah and friends in 2008 were teaching a course on the New Age Christ. We have lovers of themselves, narcissistic people yearning to become famous on the Internet taking pictures of themselves and placing them on UTube.
Perhaps 2 Timothy 3:2-4 describes it best. They are lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemous, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady means reckless, high minded (pride), lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. The apostle also warns in 2 Timothjy 3:1 it is not a very bright future for the organized church. What seemed to be a knowledgeable caller to a radio station recently said A.G. Holder has requested churches be infiltrated and monitored. The tax-exemption has muzzled the churches for decades and now spies? There seems to be a strange and powerful evil spirit beginning to fully manifest itself through this once great nation of America.
For some reason, coal miners and sailors have had the image of being extremely able to use colorful curse words but today the language by even small children is more vivid, more graphic, more dramatic, and more frightening. Many are unable to put a sentence together without using the “F” word which has to be continually bleeped.
In Alan Stang’s 2007 book Not HolierThan Thou, on page 169 he compared “The Franklin Cover-Up: Child Abuse, Satanism and Murder in Nebraska” to the D.C. call boy rings that catered to the politically elite.
I was reminded of James A. Garfield said before becoming president in 1881. He wrote on the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence the following message:
“That now more than ever before, they are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerated ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. If the next centennial in 1976 does not find us a great nation…it will because those who represent the enterprise, the culture and the morality of the nation did not aid in controlling the political forces.”
And now one of the latest headlines refers to the Boy Scouts succumbing to the homosexual agenda. Frosty Wooldridge in his article “Opening Up A Can of Worms” sends out his warnings.
A CRISIS OF THE SOUL
In a 8/29/2012 guest opinion J.R.Harrison wonders if America is in a moral and financial crisis. He said if Barack Obama was re-elected, it is game, set and match. Save divine intervention the good ship America will turn its nose to the sky and plunge to the depths of civilizations lost having been capsized by a tidal wave of Humanism. The USA will officially become a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah and join the Romans on the ash heap of societies. Yes, we have a crisis – a crisis of the soul.
Then there is the article in the 1/7/2012 in The New American that the CIA was recruiting with the “LGBT” community for spy agency staffing in order to diversify its workforce, the spy agency is reaching out to a group that once was unable to get security clearance – lesbians and gay men. Of course, the reason was because people in that lifestyle were easily blackmailed but now that this lifestyle has been made normal, no fear of blackmail.
CART BEFORE THE HORSE
Government certifiable nincompoops are famous for getting the car before the horse. They generally lack in common sense so let us not forget another reason the 19 firefighters perished. The Bureau of Land Management owns vast tracts of public land west of the Mississippi. According to Oregon’s Democrat Senator Ron Wyden, “The bureaucracy essentially pilfers money from the prevention fund to use those dollars to fight the fire.” Wyden who is chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee has long criticized the White House’s plan to slash funding for a program that pays to remove “hazardous fuels- brush, disease trees and dead vegetation” – before the fire season starts.
Congress recommended $502 million in 2012 to be set aside for managing our forests but the Obama Administration in 2014 budget request is seeking only $296 million for hazardous-fuels reduction. In addition, the US budget is cutting firefighting programs. It’s as if the Obama administration wants to see America burn… One thing our Constitution continually emphasizes: SAFETY ; however, when push comes to shove and the unsustainable socialist programs which are breaking us causes budget to become depleted, the first thing all elected officials tend to do is violate their Oath of Office and they turn off street lights, neglect filling potholes, turn prisoners loose because of lack of jail space which is being done currently, close swimming pools during the summer, lay off fire fighters, etc. In Oregon, our National Guard must take furloughs starting on July 8, 2013 after the legislature, which adjourned on 7/9 once again failed to make significant changes in the unsustainable Public Employees Retirement System and all the top elected public officials got a $5,000 raise including judges.
The environmentalists have this dominant strange component with the occult. We first experienced that in Oregon when they placed the “spotted owl” on the endangered list which shut down great portions of Oregon’s forest industry. They worship the creation rather than the creator. We now have “ghost towns” where the timber industry thrived and brought in big bucks for cities, counties and school districts but since Big Brother has shut down the timber industry, these entities have had to rely on government “bailouts” and since the government bailouts are being diminished, these entities are strapped for money so like Josephine County Commissioners, they created loosely defined “nuisance ordinanes” to catch the weary in order to raise money.
Currently there are various bills that will add 60,000 acres to the Wild Rogue Wilderness, nearly 30,000 areas in new wilderness in the Coast Range and create more than 17,000 acres of new wilderness along the John Day river and add new federal protections to portions of the Molalla and Chetco rivers according o Jim Geisinger, executive vice president of Associated Oregon Loggers. He says these areas would likely never be threatened by logging, though it’s hard to understand why the Senate is rushing to designate additional wildness areas. The Pacific Northwest already has 4.6 million acres of federal land that’s entirely off-limits to economic activity. In addition to congressional action on wilderness lands, President Bill Clinton’s Northwest Forest Plan administratively prohibited management on most of our federal forests….so they burn!!!
Trading a renewable resource for a non-renewable resource, while creating more wilderness where there’s plenty, sends troubling signals to rural communities that are suffering from high unemployment and poverty. New Age liberals on the east coast have no idea what is happening in the West.

GET US OUT OF THE UNITED NATIONS
It’s the old saying, “What the government giveth, the government can taketh away” and Republican Richard Nixon’s Executive Order 11647 partitioning the U.S.A. into 10 standard Federal Regions replaced our Constitutional Republic and gave us instead “Administrative” government placing unelected and unaccountable public employees to head such despotic agencies as the Environmental Protection Agency, that like the recently IRS has been shown to likewise do, played favorites with the satanic environmentalists. Nixon’s revenue sharing bills caused local governments to become dependent and totally beholding to Big Brother. Nixon was one of the first to speak of a “new world order.”
So if our forests were properly managed, those 19 firefighters would not have had to die. Maybe it’s time we removed the blinders and accept the truth. www.newswithviews.com/Parnell/carl112.htm In the Ukraine, Stalin drove men, women and children off their land, scattered and killed them! They were driven out by the authorities they themselves had established.
