THE FUTURE TO COME - OIL

LUKE 21:25-26
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity;(MASS CONFUSION) the sea and the waves roaring;(FIERCE WINDS)
26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

Tropical storm slams southern China weeks after floods, earthquake Last Updated: Wednesday, June 25, 2008 | 1:34 PM ET CBC News

Tropical storm Fengshen lashed southern China with heavy rains and strong winds Wednesday, compounding the damage and suffering caused by massive flooding in the same region earlier this month.The storm made landfall Wednesday near Hong Kong and Shenzhen, where forecasters predicted heavy rains of up to 20 centimetres Wednesday and Thursday.The official Xinhua news agency says one crewman is missing and another was injured after they fell into the sea from a container ship making an emergency stop off Guangdong to wait out the storm.In Hong Kong, the storm injured at least 17 people and flooded 38 areas across the city. Unrelated flooding in southeastern China earlier this month killed at least 63 people, forced the evacuation of at least 1.66 million others and caused billions of dollars in damage.Flood control authorities in Shenzhen said no storm-related deaths had been reported there as of Wednesday morning, Xinhua said.Schools were closed in Shenzhen and nearby Hong Kong, which also shut all courts and financial markets.

The storm's heavy rains will also affect the provinces of Fujian, Guangxi, Jiangxi and Hunan, Xinhua cited the China Central Meteorological Station as saying.

Storm blamed for capsizing of Philipine ferry
In the Philippines, Fengshen, which was officially designated a typhoon, left more than 800 passengers and crew missing after a crowded ferry boat capsized when the storm hit the Philippine archipelago earlier this week. Only four dozen survivors have been found.Rescue officials say they have all but ruled out finding anyone else alive in the upturned hull of the MV Princess of the Stars.The storm's toll on shore in the Philippines included 227 dead and 275 missing in the country's worst-hit Visayas region, with dozens reported killed elsewhere by floods and landslides.

Analysts say China has paid little attention to this month's flooding in its southern region, focusing instead on relief for last month's earthquake in central Sichuan province.The death toll from that disaster is expected to pass 80,000, Vice-Premier Hui Liangyu said Tuesday.

ROGUE WAVES

repeating Wednesday June 25 at 10pm ET/PT on CBC Newsworld


Rogue waves have caused some of the world's worst naval disasters in our history. These destructive forces are not to be confused with tsunamis or tidal waves, and are not caused by earthquakes or landslides. They are massive, towering walls of water that rise from within the sea, offer no warning to those at their mercy and have baffled scientists for centuries.

Rogue Waves is a one-hour documentary that combines the dramatic tales of rogue wave disasters over the course of history, with scientific investigation and groundbreaking technology to help us better understand their nature. Through the use of wave tanks and satellite images, Rogue Waves gives viewers insight into the origins of this powerful, unstoppable force, why they strike out of seemingly calm seas and the means scientists are using to better forecast them before disaster strikes.

REVELATION 22:1-4
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

COULD THIS STORY IN NEW YORK BE A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING FOR ISRAELIS. WHEN JESUS RETURNS TO EARTH TO RULE FROM JERUSALEM THERE WILL BE A WATERFALL COMING FROM HIS THRONE. I WONDER IF THIS SO CALLED ARTIST INVENTION COULD REALLY BE GOD WORKING ON ISRAELIS TO GET TO ISRAEL. ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

BESIDES ISRAEL, WERE IS THE NEXT MOST ISRAELIS - NEW YORK,NO ACCIDENT THIS WATER FALLS IS ERECTED IN NEW YORK.

Danish artist's waterfalls grace New York's East River
JUNE 26,08


NEW YORK (AFP) — New York on Thursday inaugurated its latest open air art installation: four giant waterfalls along the East River by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson.Four metal structures pump river water some 30 meters (90 feet) into the air, where it falls freely in liquid curtains 10 to 20 meters (30 to 60 feet) wide.It's about time and experiencing space, Eliasson, 41, said of his creation.

Water has great potential to be both physical and very elusive, it can be many different things for many different people, he told AFP.

The four waterfalls are located on Governor's Island, under the Brooklyn Bridge, and on two piers. They are visible by day through October 13 from both the Manhattan and Brooklyn sides of the East River.Special boat tours have been organized and the city has created special pedestrian and bicycle paths for observing the waterfalls.New York's last major installation was Christo's The Gates in February 2005. It featured thousands of orange metal frames draped with saffron fabric along 23 miles (37 kilometers) of Central Park's pathways.The Gates brought 254 million dollars to the New York economy, city officials said.The 15.5 million dollar waterfall installation was privately financed. Organizers hope it will bring some 55 million fresh tourist dollars to the city.

THE FUTURE WITHOUT CHEAP OIL By Kelly Crowe and futurist James Howard Kunstler. JUNE 25,08 CBC NEWS

James Kunstler is a futurist who says about the future without cheap oil. This was a story by Kelly Crowe of CBC News June 25,08.

James starts off we have already entered this zone what I call a long emergency. A period of turbulance and hardship, and economic distress that is going to go on for quite a while.

FAMINE

REVELATION 6:5-6
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.(A DAYS WAGES FOR A LOAF OF BREAD)

ECONOMIC DISTRESS

LUKE 21:25
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity;(MASS CONFUSION) the sea and the waves roaring;(FIERCE WINDS)

It starts off with James Hoeing his garden and Kelly Crowe saying:We are going to need these skills because the era of cheap oil is amost over. Kelly goes into the history of oil.

In the begining, the energy in agriculture came from animals and men. Then there was oil to fuel the machines. To make the fertilizers and chemicals, meaning bigger farms futhur from markets.
But now the food on our plates depends entirely on cheap oil.

James says: everything organised as a giant scale is gonna get in trouble in the post cheap oil era. INCLUDING:

1-Wheat farmers in the midwest and saskateuwan.
2-Fertilizers made from Natural gas.
3-Urbicides and Pesticides made with oil.
4-And lots of deasel fuel to run enormous machines on big land.
5-Tomatoes and Lettuce trucked across the Continent.

Now the truckers can't afford to take these loads. As time goes on it will be getting more and more expensive to do this. We are going to have to grow food on a more modest scale. Smaller farms and in a way that aquires more human attention.

James says: The suburban project is over. People will be moving to small cities accustomed to their lifestyles.

Kelly says: Transportation in the industial age, started with Trains powered by steam, then Coal. Later the landscape was carved up for highways, and airplanes filled the skies.

DANIEL 12:4
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro,(WORLD TRAVEL,IMMIGRATION) and knowledge shall be increased.(COMPUTERS MICROCHIPS ETC)

Take away cheap oil and everything will change. Waterways could be the way of the future.

REVELATION 18:7-20 POLITICAL BABYLON AMERICA (NEW YORK THE CITY)
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

James says: Ships are a cheaper way of travel but he wishes Trains would come back. The airlines will not survive due to the high prices.

Kelly Says: What about Solar Power, wind power? The trouble is it takes cheap oil to build the machines for alternative fuel. Life after cheap oil will be slower, shaped by whatever takes the least amount of energy. Wood and Coal will be burned. There could be fighting over the remaining resourses.

LUKE 21:9
9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

James says: So many people assume that we are intitled to a smooth segway between were we are at now and where we are heading in the post oil period. I think what were going to see is a lot of political trouble, and a lot of economical and social distress.

LUKE 21:25
25 and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity;(MASS CONFUSION).

REVELATION 6:5-6
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.(A DAYS WAGES FOR A LOAF OF BREAD)

As incomes are lost, and jobs are lost, and ways of life become hopeless. I see a politics of resentment and grievence on the part of large new, former middle class, people who had expectations about a certain kind of life. I worry most about social disorder. A potential for the great losses that people expierence every day mounting into grievence, anger and violence and criminal behavier.

GENESIS 6:11-13
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.(WORLD TERRORISM,MURDERS)
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence (TERRORISM) through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

2 TIMOTHY 3:13
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

EPHESIANS 5:5-8
5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

A law inforcement system that will not be able to keep up with this. An unraveling social contract in the face of absolutely extrordinary circumstances.

I AGREE TOTALLY WITH JAMES ON THESE HAPPENING BECAUSE OF OIL SKY ROCKETING IN PRICE. NO MONEY FOR FOOD LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS A DAYS WAGES FOR A LOAF OF BREAD. INCREDIBLE FAMINES, WARS AND COMMOTIONS, WORLD NATIONS IN MASS CONFUSION DUE TO THE SOCIAL UPHEAVEL. INCREDIBLE VIOLENCE DUE TO STEALING FOOD TO SURVIVE. YES WORLD WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS, KEEP YOUR TRUST IN JESUS BECAUSE WE ARE IN FOR HELL ON EARTH LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS JUST BEFORE TRUE CHRISTIANS GET RAPTURED TO HEAVEN TO BE WITH JESUS FOREVER.

MATTHEW 24:21
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

As of 4PM OIL TRADED AT A RECORD $140.05 A BARREL AND THE DOW WAS DOWN 342 POINTS. SPEAKING OF POLITICAL AND SOCIAL DISTRESS.
