Shining LIGHT to a darkened world



                                                             2017 GLOBAL FORECAST UPDATE 


                                                                                                          AUGUST 31, 2017

Isaiah 21:6
"For this has YHWH said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees"
Ezekiel 33:7
"Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me."

We are at the threshold of great change, transformation, and awakening in the earth. August is a preparatory time. We’re in the thick of the smoldering summer heat, but we know the relief of cooler autumn temperatures is just around the corner. If ever there was a time to prepare for the colder darker months ahead, now is the time. While each moment can be lived from a place of gratitude and appreciation, we still keep a watchful eye on the challenges that lie ahead for us as individuals and as a global society. Let’s not get lost in the revelry of the last hurrah of summer, nor become bedraggled by depressing news events. It is our time to shine whatever light we have received to bring balance and healing to our planet. Expect anything this fall. Prepare for everything as best you can. At the same time give thanks for all things believing in the unseen power that is working all things out for the benefit of those who open their hearts to true love. So don’t despair. The following, is our ever present list of topics that we have asked our readers to keep a close eye on:

  • Donald Trump doesn’t make it through a full term of his presidency
  • We continue to see an increase in the amount of record natural disasters
  • We see a dramatic rise in sea levels
  • Great scandals continue to cause great men and women to step down. Some may even get arrested
  • Terror strikes around the globe continue for a while
  • The human population continues to become increasingly angry for a while
  • Increases in diseases continue, and “cures” are touted to be found to eradicate them
  • Disruptions in travel continue
  • Food shortages spread, before there is a so-called solution
  • Global financial unrest leads to a global currency reset
  • There is an extraterrestrial disclosure by major governments or undeniable sightings of our alien neighbors

Hosea 4:1-3 reads: “Hear the word of YHWH, O children of Israel, for YHWH has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of YHWH in the land; there is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. That is why your land dries up, and all who live therein waste away; the beasts of the field and the birds of the heavens and even the fish of the sea are taken away.”
The following headlines give testimony to the devastation that has befallen our land and animals. Because we do not hear of these events on a daily basis, we miss the signs that show us that a shift is near. The end as we know it is not a bad thing, but for those who are not prepared it will seem to be very bad indeed. (To read the articles copy and paste link into your browser):

                                                           EARTHQUAKES IN PLACE AFTER PLACE

Isaiah 13:11-13“… Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will shake from its foundations at the wrath of Yahweh on the day of His burning anger.” 
So, it’s one thing if fireworks cause the sky to rumble. Pretty much everyone can enjoy the sky all ablaze with a myriad of lights to offset the darkness. It’s quite a different story if the rumbling one hears is due to the earth cracking around their feet, or the walls toppling upon them and their loved ones. In the shift that we are at the threshold of we are seeing great earth changes. We are seeing signs in the heavens and we are seeing the perplexity in mankind. The USGS recorded 8,522 earthquakes during August 2016. In August 2017 the USGS recorded 11,386 earthquakes. There were 2,864 more earthquakes this year than there were last year at the same time. Nine hundred and thirteen of these quakes were above a magnitude 4.0.  The following 27 did not make the mainstream news in August however, they did register above a magnitude 5.5:

                                                              NATURAL WEATHER EMERGENCIES

Eccl 3:18 says: There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,a time to kill and a time to heal. Now is the time to prepare as we see the days approaching. In the days of Noah, the overwhelming majority did not prepare as Noah preached for 600 years, when time expired they couldn’t. Certainly, we don’t want to be caught off guard with so many warnings over the last 2000 years. Below, we read of several natural weather emergencies that took place in August.

                                                         ENVIRONMENTAL DISTRESS AND DISEASE

Deuteronomy 28:58-62 says: If you do not carefully observe and do all the words of the law, that are written in this book, in order that you may reverence this glorious and reverent Name: YHWH your Father, then YHWH will bring upon you and your descendants fearful plagues, harsh and prolonged disasters, and severe and lingering illnesses. He will also bring back upon you all the diseases of Egypt which you were afraid of, and they will cling to you; Every other sickness and every other disaster, which is not written in this book of the law, YHWH will also bring upon you, until you are destroyed. You will then be left few in number…
Our land is a beautiful one. The Earth has offered us a rich canvas of colors, scents, and sounds to make our sensory experience a good one. Consider innumerable flowers and plants dressed in magnificent hues of every color on the spectrum. Many of our plant friends offer us not only their beauty, but their healing properties as well. Mountains invite us to reach new heights where we can breathe fresher, crisper air. Rivers, lakes, springs, and other bodies of water, sustain the organisms on this wondrous planet. With all the blessings the earth provides we should not overlook the fact that when our environment is in distress, we are too. Below we see an array of headlines showing how the earth is stressing. Some stresses are necessary for growth and renewal, but others are just downright dangerous to the immediate physical existence. We are approaching a critical time period in which the old elementals of the earth are passing away and a new spiritually rich period is dawning. During this period a new creation will be raised out of the destruction and chaos of the old and fallen one.

                                                                           SIGNS OF THE TIMES 

Signs are very useful in helping us plan our direction. When we know what to look for we have a better idea of what steps to take. Wise fishers familiar with the signs of an impending tsunami know when it’s time to ditch the boat and head for higher ground. Those who see the signs but fail to take necessary precautions may find themselves swept away with the current. Here, also, if we see the signs of potential danger and fail to prepare, we may find ourselves swept away with the troubles of the times. We have been seeing signs over the past 30 years. In 2012 we entered a new period and in September 2015 the effects of the new period accelerated. We are seeing a last minute ditch effort to resist the coming changes through deceptive signs and wonders, but it will be to no avail. Our monthly updates have documented the acceleration since 2015. Below we can see some of the signs for this month.

                                                                GLOBAL ECONOMIC UNREST

We see bankruptcies, municipalities failing, companies laying off, employees, and more. Undoubtedly these circumstances have caused unrest in the minds of some who may have been affected by job layoffs and company closings. There is a lesson to be learned here: true peace and security is not found in anything as transient as a job that can be here today and gone tomorrow. The global economy seems to be slowly getting worked into a position of collapse. True peace is cultivated by a mind that has grown to trust safely in the only Source of Power in the Universe. When peace of mind is attained those who acknowledge Source in all that they do can feel a sense of security knowing that heaven is looking out for them regardless of what the economic climate may look like.

                                                                         GLOBAL SOCIAL UNREST

Revelation 11:18: The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people who revere your name, both great and small- and for destroying those who destroy the earth.
If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself then make a change. The late singer, songwriter Michael Jackson sang rich words of truth in that one line. With the amount of headlines featuring social unrest, clearly the world needs to become a better place. If we reflect on the energy of the world today we would have to say that the governments and people of nations are angry. The world, also, is made up of many individuals who are able to change themselves. We cannot protest others into becoming more compassionate, merciful, or patient. We cannot riot others into embracing our values. We can however, look more deeply within ourselves to see the changes that we can make. When we become committed to making those changes, then the world truly has an opportunity to become a better place.

As we peer into the activities pertaining to scandals involving powerful people we see governments fighting to keep control of the systems that they are losing influence over. Some have already lost control of their positions in the part of the system that they partook of in sewing corruption and have resigned, while others fled. We see others losing their jobs, some even their physical lives. The earth is beginning to open its mouth (Revelation 12:16). There is a time when things done in darkness are drawn to the light, and during the time that they come to light, many are seen for who they truly are while others are caught in the cross hairs. Expect to see an increased crack down on drug running and human trafficking in the coming months as these behaviors are covertly behind the system that is now about to come crashing down like the walls of Yericho.

                                                                        DISRUPTIONS IN TRANSPORTATION

Disruptions in transportation are proving to be an increasing problem. As we cited last month: A Washington Post article on July 13th headlined “Climate change could make flying even more hellish”. In reference to what we have been seeing this report should not be taken lightly. We are seeing more crashes and emergency landings than ever before in the history of aviation. We see the same increase in the sea and on rails as well. The cosmic body that we have spoken of, which is in our solar system, is not even being mentioned. However, it is part of the balancing mechanism being used by higher beings to disrupt the plans of those who have taken charge of the planet unlawfully and whose actions are causing climate change. Climate change is not a result of the average human person who has been enslaved in the matrix it is the responsibility of those who propagate evil and injustice upon humanity. The headlines below are very telling:

As we close the August forecast we want to remind our readers of a well-known children’s story - The Little Engine that Could. Amid great adversity and challenges, the Little Engine chugged and puffed till he was victorious in the end, bringing happiness to all the children who waited eagerly for the gifts in his cars. We too, as a collective body have much to overcome: greed, anger, selfishness, hatred, the list can go on and on. Obviously, our life circumstances are proving to be quite challenging, threatening to knock the very breath out of us. With a positive change in mindset and lots of determination we can chug and puff until we reach our destination. When we get there the gifts that have been inside us all along can be shared with all bringing happiness to the children of our Earth.
