  1. My prayers for all the affected people by the tornado. We are heading for great natural catastrophes from all the four forces of nature. Awakening to simple principle and design on which nature functions can alleviate the situation and transcend the critical period. We were created in God's Image and we were given the requisite knowledge before He gave dominion to us. We lost this knowledge when we became self centered and forgot HIM. Through Jesus' spirit God is giving back this Knowledge. Only Knowledge can help us escape the great destruction coming to us and lead us to Golden Age. I keep posting to you all on natural catastrophes. Just to call your attention to the fact that we are governed two basic forces, the heating and cooling. They give way to one another smoothly over a period slowly. The day and night and climatic cycle speak of the energy cycle in which we live. When we unilaterally increase the heat of environment and intervene into the night cycle. We actually decrease the grid points through which this slow change occurs. Consequence is Accelerated climate change or sudden increases and fall. This manifest as increasing natural catastrophes. I had predicted an increased fire and wind bound destruction due to increased heat. So too destruction from flash flood/ snows , earth quakes and volcanic eruption due to earth forces that oppose it by winding - This progression of events could lead to activation of all major volcanoes. The sign are very much there - it is time to awaken to simple realities of nature and take guard of earth - the two links can lead the world to truth

  2. Bad to hear that deadly tornado happened in Oklahoma recently; Will keep them in my prayers.

    1. yeah its bad as to hear that the tornado spun around and sucked them up and bashed all the house and make people dead as sleeping forever

  3. pretty sad, not funny at all blimmin ratchet as!
