12314 Gleaning Prayer For Babylon Is Now On The Censer^ BE READY!
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole[a]world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
One of the most disturbing and relentless trends over the past several years has been the redirection of war technology and equipment from the battlefield abroad toward domestic use in the USA. This has resulted in amilitarization of police across the nation and has encouraged small towns to use Department of Homeland Security (DHS) grants to purchase ridiculous items such as tanks.
“That’s the kind of massive persistent surveillance we’ve always been concerned about with drones,” said Jay Stanley, a privacy expert for the American Civil Liberties Union. “It’s part of this trend we’ve seen since 9/11, which is the turning inward of all of these surveillance technologies.”
“You can put to rest that there is any aliens or anything like that, and I am not the biggest expert on meteors but I think you can probably safely say it was not a meteor,” said Des Jardins.
The Montana Space Grant Consortium gets photos from people across the state on a regular basis. However Des Jardins tells us these photos are unlike anything she has seen so far.
In other words, by sending troops onto the islands and planting the flag.
The Chinese professional suggested that this limited strike could be effected without provoking a broader conflict. The strike would have great symbolic value, demonstrating to China, Japan, and the rest of the world who was boss. But it would not be so egregious a move that it would force America and Japan to respond militarily and thus lead to a major war.
Well, when the Chinese professional finished speaking, there was stunned silence around the table.

“Any potential war between the two nations would be devastating to both, Vogel said,” according to the Want China Times, “adding that it would take at least 10 years for Beijing and Tokyo to resume normalized relations if a third Sino-Japanese war were to take place.”
A deluge of aggressive rhetoric has emerged out of official Communist Party organs in recent months, including discussion about China’s ability to attack US military bases in the Western Pacific, as well as a lengthy editorial which appeared in Chinese state media last month explaining how the Chinese military’s current reformation process was part of a move by President Xi Jinping to prepare the People’s Liberation Army for war.
And now, it’s time for Gapzorm to suspend shipments of natgas to European customers, just as the Qatar-mandated explosions in Sochi are set to begin. And then it gets really fun.
“I’m ready for peace. I’m ready for a real, secure, genuine, peace. and I hope President Abbas is ready too.”
“Central Arab governments in the Middle East are concerned with the arming of Iran with nuclear weapons and the spread of the Islamic brotherhood. Those governments see Israel as a partner in holding back those threats,” he stated.
“What would induce the citizens of a prosperous and peaceful country to leave for an increasingly impoverished and violent living hell? Why would anyone exchange France for Syria?”
The answer is clear: it is the call of jihad, the attraction of performing what many Muslims believe is the highest and best duty one can perform before Allah, in line with words attributed to Muhammad: a man once asked him: “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” Muhammad replied, “I do not find such a deed.” (Bukhari 4.52.44).
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the Davos World Economic Forum in Switzerland on Thursday, saying he wanted to have good relations “with all countries we officially recognize,” in an apparent suggestion that Tehran does not have plans on seeking relations with Israel.
“We did not agree to dismantle anything,” Mohammad Javad Zarif told CNN in an interview on Wednesday, charging that the Obama administration had created a false impression in the language it used to describe the six-month agreement.
“The White House tries to portray it as basically a dismantling of Iran’s nuclear program,” he said, speaking from Davos, Switzerland, where he is attending the World Economic Forum. “If you find a single, a single word, that even closely resembles dismantling or could be defined as dismantling in the entire text, then I would take back my comment.”
The Shin Bet said the three suspects made contact with al-Qaida over the Internet. It said they planned on traveling to Syria — where various jihadist groups are battling the forces of President Bashar Assad — for training.
On the other hand, our post-9/11 security policies, especially those that relate to immigration are in place for a very good reason, and wholesale ignoring those laws by giving a blanket “pass” for thousands of refugees for an area with a high concentration of radical Islamists seems like an open invitation for disaster.
One would imagine that where the security of the United States is concerned, the proper course of action would be to err on the side of caution, which, in this case, would mean pursuing the course of action that is least likely to open the US to further terror attacks on our own soil.
The Obama Administration’s Pentagon is set to alter longstanding military uniform practices in order to allow more Muslim and Sikh friendly rules that would welcome full beards and turbans to be worn as part of official military dress. The new rules are being done under the guise of “religious freedom”.
Combine this “new” uniform policy via the Obama administration, with the recent removal of crosses atop military chapels, and a still just months old scandal involving updated military training manuals classifying Christian groups as terrorists, and the picture becomes undeniably clear as to the anti Christian bent of the Obama administration’s supervision over our United States Military.
“And when a president decides that he’s going to write a law, that sounds a lot like former President [Mohamed] Morsi in Egypt, who all of a sudden declared that whatever his edict was, [it] was not appealable to a court,” she said. “Whatever he said was law. Well, how is that much different from what we’re seeing come out of the White House today?

If you said the underlying data is comparable store sales for McDonalds in the United States, which just dipped by 1.4% – the most since the Lehman crash – then you were 100% accurate. That’s right: in Q4 the American consumer, obviously “because of the weather” just said no to the biggest US diet staple.
In other words, the chart above shows close to the exact moment when Americans could no longer even afford to eat at the golden arches.
And now, as the economists say, “assume a recovery…
Initial claims rose very marginally week over week (with the declining trend of early 2013 now over); continung claims rose more – considerably more than expectations – with its biggest 7-week rise since early 2009 to the highest in 6 months; but the major news is the drop in Emergency Unemployment Compensation beneficiaries from 1.37 million to (drum roll please) zero!
Congress decision not to extend this beenfit means there are 2 million fewer people on benefits than a year ago. The 1.4 million drop also means the number of people NOT in the labor force is about to rise by the same amount, which as we explained before, means the US unemployment rate is about to drop by up to 0.8%, which means the January unemployment rate could be as low as 5.9%.
Henry Kissinger, who served the Nixon administration as national security advisor and secretary of state, has commented that the 1973 oil embargo was “one of the pivotal events in the history of the [twentieth] century.”
Kissinger did not refer specifically to the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) in that statement, but there is no doubt that one of the most important outcomes of the oil embargo was to fill the coffers of BCCI, making it one of the more powerful financial institutions in the world.
The implications are earth shattering and hit the very core of the problems facing America today. The whole system as it exists is just one big paper IOU.
If you were to store some emergency funds with a friend who promised to get them back to you whenever you asked, and then you ask and are told it’ll be a few years before he’ll get you the cash, what assumption would you make?
That your friend has the money on him right now, or that he’s used it for other purposes and doesn’t really know exactly when he’ll have it available for repayment?
If you believe the hype, you’ve been had. As Izabella Kaminska of the Financial Times tells us, you all are really just doing free/underpaid R&D for central banks, since you are debugging and building legitimacy for one of their fond projects, making currencies digital and getting rid of cash altogether.
With chatter that over $3 billion has been thrown into the FX market to buy Turkish Lira, it appears the central bank is losing control quickly and Turkish stocks are tumbling. The Turkish Lira collapse almost 400 pips this morning to around 2.30 to the USD – an all-time record low as the combination of corruption, social unrest, and Fed taper are seeing hot money outflows faster than the Turkish Central bank can keep control. This is the biggest tumble in the Lira in almost 5 months as the Istanbul 100 (stocks) drops 2.9% – its biggest drop in a month; and Turkish bond yields are backing up to 2-year highs.
Their breastplates (scales) resembled breastplates made of iron, and the [whirring] noise made by their wings was like the roar of a vast number of horse-drawn chariots going at full speed into battle.

We’ve recently been hearing a lot about how exoskeletons can be used in rehabilitation, guiding patients’ disabled limbs through a normal range of motion in order to develop muscle memory. The problem is, most exoskeletons are rigid, limiting their degrees of freedom to less than those of the body part they’re moving. A team of scientists are looking at changing that, with a partial “soft exoskeleton” that replicates the body’s own muscles, tendons and ligaments.
