What's with the Molotov cocktail throwing? Tremor at LA sinkhole, and other news

Here is some news for you. There really is too much these days to cover comprehensively. The nearness of the Tribulation is truly astonishing, and getting closer each second. The events lining up in the Middle East, the deepening financial depression with no solutions in sight, the earth events such as quakes, sinkhole, storms etc, the X-flares from the sun, hatred of Israel and the Jews worldwide, the sinful behavior of people with all their violence, the false teachers and tickled ears that refuse to hear the Gospel, ... I am shaking my head in amazement.

You know that the United States is rapidly becoming a Third World country, don't you? Our debt, lack of manufacturing, loss of influence and stature in the world, shrinking military...all have combined to bring the wolves to the door. A Russian sub patrolled our shores in the Gulf of Mexico for almost a month and we didn't notice. Or if we did, we didn't say anything.

Now we have a UN election monitor team coming to the US to monitor OUR elections. Foreign officials coming in unprecedented numbers to monitor US elections. Texas of course, said don't mess with us, and threatened to have anyone who even looked like a monitor prosecuted.

All I can say is, the election won't solve our problems. And besides, even if Romney wins, it is a long time until the inauguration. Anything could happen.

In addition to foreign former superpowers nosing around our shores undetected, and global monitoring teams watching our elections, we have had a spate of Molotov cocktail throwing incidents. "The Molotov cocktail is a generic name used for a variety of improvised incendiary weapons. Due to the relative ease of production, they are frequently used by amateur protesters and non-professionally equipped fighters in urban guerrilla warfares. They are primarily intended to set targets ablaze rather than instantly destroy them." (Wikipedia)

A Molotov cocktail was thrown in a Virginia Mall this week. "Leon Alphans Traille, Jr., 29, has been charged with committing arson for allegedly throwing a Molotov cocktail into the food court area of the Ballston Common Mall in Arlington, Virginia." He threw it from the second floor balcony into the food court. It did not explode but it did ignite. The flames were extinguished. There is no more innocuous place in America than a mall food court. Can you imagine sitting there, munching on an Orange Julius or a Au Bon Pain croissant and suddenly the floor next to you is aflame and you're running screaming down the hall?

This news piece is graphic. A Molotov cocktail was thrown onto a guy and it did light up, burning the man.
"Police in the United States have released shocking video of a 54-year-old man being set on fire as he was sitting outside a market in the state of California. “The victim was waiting for his father to get food, minding his own business, when the suspect came from an alley and threw an object at him, a bottle,” Sergeant Aaron Eaton of the Long Beach Police Department told local media. The graphic surveillance video, released on Sunday, shows the suspect tossing a Molotov cocktail at the victim, who was sitting on the ground outside a Long Beach, California market on Friday evening. The victim, engulfed in flames, runs into the nearby parking lot, where witnesses helped put out the fire. He is in serious condition with burns to the lower part of his body, his hands and his face, and his name is being withheld."

This one is out of Hurst TX. "Federal agents are trying to identify who threw small explosive devices at a lawyer's office and an oil company in Hurst. Firefighters discovered Molotov cocktails when they responded to a report of a fire in the 1200-block of Southridge Court on Sunday morning, said Andrew Young, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives."

Montreal has had three Molotov attacks in 24 hours. A Molotov cocktail launched at sushi restaurant and two bars.

Throwing an incendiary device on an innocent bystander is horrible! Unconscionable!! As this writer said,
"Increase of Wickedness" - There is a pattern of lawlessness dominating our society today that throughout history was found in civilizations in the process of decline. It is a pattern evident in nations that rejected God's Word as ultimate authority in their lives and is a pattern prevailing in many Americans today. Scripture tells us that... Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. [Matthew 24:12]. I believe America's rejection of Christ's lordship is the reason behind all the bloodshed, violence, racial hatred, moral decay, drug abuse and outbreak of deadly sexual diseases in our society. Lawmakers, educators and the media have made God an unspeakable subject...
So now there's this Frankenstorm looming. I wrote about it on Tuesday when the computer models were first showing something that would be worse that 1991'as Perfect Storm. Then I updated it early this morning. Since then, the computer models have lined up and there seems to be something of a 90% chance that this storm will be as bad as they feared. Forecasters warn East Coast about 'Frankenstorm':

"It's looking like a very serious storm that could be historic," said Jeff Masters, meteorology director of the forecasting service Weather Underground. "Mother Nature is not saying 'trick-or-treat.' It's just going to give tricks." National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecaster Jim Cisco, who coined the nickname Frankenstorm, said: "We don't have many modern precedents for what the models are suggesting. ... It's almost a weeklong, five-day, six-day event," he said from a NOAA forecast center in College Park, Md. "It's going to be a widespread, serious storm. ... Some have compared the tempest to the so-called Perfect Storm that struck off the coast of New England in 1991, but that one didn't hit as populated an area. Nor is this one like last year's Halloween storm, which was merely an early snowfall. "The Perfect Storm only did $200 million of damage and I'm thinking a billion," Masters said. "Yeah, it will be worse."

Regarding the Louisiana sinkhole I've been reporting about, the people near it have been evacuated, but the sinkhole keeps growing and the return-home date is not in sight. Officials: Math doesn’t work; end to evacuation is unclear
"The math isn’t adding up in Assumption Parish, and some parish officials are worried about what might be happening underground near a Bayou Corne area sinkhole. ... With this uncertainty as well as other factors — such as the natural gas still trapped underground — officials said the end date of the evacuation of the Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou communities remains unclear. “Until we figure out what is going on below the surface, it would be very negligent on our part to ask these people to come back into their homes,” Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said. The evacuation has been in place since the evening of Aug. 3, hours after the sinkhole was found south of La. 70 South on Texas Brine’s leased property. The evacuation affects about 150 homes." ...

But then today, Tremors were reported at the giant Louisiana sinkhole
"A sharp tremor was recorded by USGS monitors just after 9 p.m. Wednesday at the site of the giant Louisiana sinkhole in Assumption Parish."

Gazans fire 80 rockets at Israel in last 24 hours
"Eighty rockets and mortar shells hit the western Negev on Wednesday, in the second day of one of the most severe rocket barrages on southern Israel in recent years."

The world hates Israel.

"Heading toward an irreparable rift between U.S. Jews and Protestants
"As relations between Jews and mainline Protestants in the U.S. hit a 45-year low after 15 Protestant leaders sent a letter to Congress urging that aid to Israel be reconsidered."

UN expert: Boycott companies in Israel settlements
"UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. special investigator on human rights in the Palestinian territories called Wednesday for a boycott of all companies that have dealings with Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem..."

Sudan angry, defiant after attack that it blames on Israel
"Sudan remained defiant and angry Thursday after a fatal late-night bombing of a weapons factory in that east African country - a sophisticated attack a Sudanese official continued to blame on Israel."

The sun is pretty active. Spaceweather.com reports magnetic froth. Sounds pretty! But it packs a punch.
"MAGNETIC FROTH: Sunspot AR1598 has quieted down since unleashing an X1-class solar flare on Oct. 23rd. It might be the calm before the storm. The sunspot is still large and apparently potent, as shown in this image captured by amateur astronomer Sergio Castillo of Inglewood, California:"...

This is a very good essay by Randy Alcorn on the upcoming election. he deals with all our objections, lol. Personally I am hoping for the rapture prior to election. Obama can HAVE the world, then.

  1. Those who live without the indwelling Holy Spirit are being tossed about without an anchor. And because of personal sin and following false teaching and the ongoing idolatry many American "christians" are being affected as well. this is just the start. My mom has been plagued by seizures and subsequent health issues as a result of medication side effects. She was really quite yesterday and had told my sister that she felt guilty. My sister then began to explain the reason for that and when telling her about her need for that my dad just talked over her and confused things for my mom. My sister was distracted from dealing with the main issue and my mom slipped into a trance like confused state and did not even remember the conversation just a few moments later. This has been a spiritual problem all along. If any reading this will hear that the clock is ticking away and now is the time to repent and turn to Christ. You never know how much time you have left there is no guarantee of even another minute.
    Yes, things are heating up and the time is slipping away.

  2. I believe we are definetely in the end times. I live in Australia and the last few years the public has really embraced the new age movement and the level of lawlessness has majorly increased. Because the global financial crisis hasn't fully hit Australia people just think of themselves and don't know how good they've got it. The cost of living is extremely high here so if the global financial crisis does hit then there will be a major real estate crash where suddenly houses that cost $450,000 will only be worth $200,000 (yes 450,000) is what you pay for a house here. Australia used to be a country where people helped each other and had good old fashioned values, but now you have to lock your homes and not venture out after 10pm. I've seen society even in Australia deteriorate over the last 10 years, will be interesting to see how things pan out over the next few years. Great articles by the way.
