My Photo
Location: MInneapolis, Minnesota, United States

I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Bugs Use Telephones ... ?

In news of the strange stuff in God's creation, scientists have found out that insects have telephones ! No, really ! And they are "cell" phones.

Scientists have discovered that bugs use plants to communicate with each other like we use fiber optic networks.

Don't look at me like that ! Read this.

Ontario To Close 300 Schools... No Children

Because the West has bought into the lie that children are too much trouble, and the lie that there are too many people on the earth and the abomination of abortion, that is why there are not enough children in Ontario Canada to justify keeping 300 schools open.

Well, if you wait a little while, you can import Muslims and they will have lots of kids. They actually believe that kids are a blessing and that God wants them to have them. This is how Islam is rising to power. And the opposite of this is why Christian and Western culture is in serious decline.

Imagine, 300 schools full of kids learning. What potential would be in those walls? Try googling "empty schools" and think a minute.

Eye Candy 18

This is a lenticular cloud clinging to a mountain in Flagstaff, AZ on a dazzling star lit night. Quite a sight isn't it?

As usual you can click on the picture and see it at a much greater resolution.


Messianic Jews Must Receive Equal Treatment In Israel

This is an historic ruling. The Israeli Supreme Court has ruled that Christian Jews have the same right of return as any other Jews. The court has ordered that the persecution of Christian Jews must stop. This is in response to a lawsuit by 12 Jews who had been denied the right to return to live in Israel because they were Christians and suspected of "missionary activity"

Even though any other type of Jew has been allowed, even atheists, Christians have been denied entrance by the department of Interior. This ruling changes all of that. Glory !

Northern Yellow-Shafted Flicker (Woodpecker)

I was in downtown Minneapolis today in front of the Grain Exchange building and there before me sitting on the sidewalk with its head tucked into its wing was what looked like a pigeon sized bird with markings like a pheasant and a red stripe on its neck. Animal control was called and picked the bird up but when they reached for it and wrapped it in a towel you could see that it had a beak like a woodpecker with a slight curve downward to it.

The Animal Control guy didn't know what it was and I suggested that it was some type of woodpecker. We looked in his bird book but found nothing that looked like it under "woodpeckers". After I finished up downtown I went online to see what kind of bird it might be. After an hour of looking I could not find anything that matched it. So I called Animal Control to see if they knew what it was now that they had brought it in. I found out that they had transferred the bird to the Golden Valley Humane Society. They have a bird recovery hospital. I called Golden Valley and got a recorded announcement. so I left a message. They nicely called me back and told me that this was a Northern Flicker. I had looked at many pictures of Northern Flickers and none of them looked like my bird.

But then they told me that it was a Yellow-Shafted Northern Flicker. (Vs. Red-Shafted West of the Rockies.) It seems the two species have been in-breeding now for many generations and there are many, many variations. Anyhow, I found a picture and a web site and finally confirmed that this bird today was a Yellow-Shafted Flicker. It was interesting. At least to me...;-)

Maranatha Come Lord Jesus

Luke 21:25 "And there will be strange events in the skies-signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And down here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. 26 The courage of many people will falter because of the fearful fate they see coming upon the earth, because the stability of the very heavens will be broken up. 27 Then everyone will see the Son of Man arrive on the clouds with power and great glory. 28 So when all these things begin to happen, stand straight and look up, for your salvation is near!"

What could account for this sort of thing happening in our solar system? How could the "very heavens be broken up"? What would account for "strange tides'? What kind of signs will these be?

Maybe it will be the nearest moon to Mars, Phobos, crashing into the planet and causing catastrophic devastation? It is bound to do so. It is truly a death moon, It's days are limited. Nobody knows how limited but yet all know that it will happen someday. Imagine the result.

Phobos (fear) rotates around Mars at about 5,800 kilometers above the surface. That is only less than 3000 miles. Roughly the distance between Minneapolis and Alaska. Compare that to our moon that rotates at the distance of roughly 250,000 miles.
Now you see why gravity will win soon on Mars. Is this the physical cause of the above scripture? Hmmm?

The photo above is a very high resolution photo of Phobos. You can click on it to enlarge it.

Photographer Fined $6000 For NOT Taking Pictures At A Wedding !

A photographer in New Mexico was asked to take photos of a lesbian commitment ceremony. They politely refused. They got sued. The state Human Rights Commission fined them $6000. The case is on appeal.

Our friend, Jordan Lorence with the Alliance Defense Fund, defended the photographers. Because of the aggressiveness of homosexual activists, Jordan believes that this is the sort of thing that will result from new non-discrimination laws passed in 19 states. These laws are being used as weapons against Christian businesses and churches.

The Federal government is now trying to pass some new non-discrimination laws. It is called the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act. It will probably have a chilling effect upon Christianity in America as it is used against those who believe in the word of God.

Here is Elaine Photography's web site.

Here is more about this item.

Internet Obsolete... New Fiber Optic "Grid" 10,000 Times Faster

Although the internet has transformed our lives, the internet is already obsolete. It travels over phone wires etc.

A new "web" of total fiber optic lines is already up and running. There are already over 55,000 servers on this "Grid" with expectations of that number rising to over 200,000 world wide within two years.

The new "Grid" is 10,000 (Ten thousand !!!) times faster than a high speed internet modem. Approaching "instant" speeds of the transfer of data and information. This will turn the industry upside down and stand it on its head.

Get ready, get ready, get ready. Stuff is happening. Wake up ! Rise up O sleeper, rise from your sleep and God will shine on you.
"…many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase."

Fire Rainbows and Moon Beams

Here is a picture that came from Gail-Bowar Hyster. It is rare phenomenon called a "Fire Rainbow"




Pretty cool. But Lynn and I were flying to Memphis at night in a full moon about 2 weeks ago and I saw something that I did not know even existed. I saw this same phenomenon in a humidity type cloud at night that was occurring as a result of the reflection of the light from the sun off of the full moon. A reflection fire rainbow so to speak.

What's my point? (Why do I always have to make a point? Can't I just babble on like the rest of the world?) My point is this. ...
Even the reflected glory of God as seen in the church (moon) contains in it the very promises of God. We truly are the body of Christ.

Or something like that. Anyhow, it blessed me to the center of my heart. A private sweet time with the Lord.

The Government Owns Your Child's DNA In Minnesota

When your baby was born the nurse took a needle and extracted 5 spots of blood from your babies foot and put them on a blotter. If you asked, "What is that for?" you were told it was for a PKU test. But what you were not told is that this blood then became the property of the State and it was added to their library of genetic information about your baby.

What does that mean? It means that, in the future, they will be able to clone your baby. It means that they can now tag your baby for genetic reasons and include or exclude your baby from programs and events. It means that they are probably tracking to see if your child is "genetically inclined to be a homosexual."

This information must not belong to the state. It reeks of experimentation and nazi potential.
Here is what you need to know:
--The PKU test is NOT required, you can “opt out” (but this puts the burden on you and not the State)
--You can have the PKU test done at a private facility
--If you’ve already had the PKU test done and don’t feel good about allowing the state to keep and use your kid’s DNA you can have the test and results destroyed.

In the mean time, you can have the State destroy the PKU test and results by submitting a form found here:

More information on the PKU test can be found here:

Pink Arches

Even though I just learned that the Asian Salad at McDonald's was very good I will not be buying anything there for quite some time. I cannot and will not support any corporate group that promotes and supports the homosexual agenda. McDonald's has now openly come out and said that they will actively support homosexuality.

McDonald's grew from it's support of the American family. Now, the corporate geniuses have decided to support the gays whose agenda will destroy the American family. People, once they hear about this, will be staying away in droves. The mere 2 % of the population that are homosexual will do little to stop the future fall of McDonald's. McDonald's days are numbered.

I encourage you all to never purchase anything there again. (It will be no big loss anyhow) This blatant "in-your-face" corporate support of that which is morally wrong has to be confronted. Call your local McDonald's and let them know what you think. McDonald's is McDone. Clowns are creepy anyhow.

UC Discrimination Against Christian Private Schools

Not happy with only getting 4 years to indoctrinate new undergraduates at UC, the secular humanists (or is it the atheists?) now want to control wither these young people studied (gasp!) creationism in their private Christian prep school. UC is inclined to reject applications from kids who studied creationism in their Christian science classes. I guess they are not just inclined, it is policy

You can read about this over reaction and sign of things to come here

I can't help but wonder why it says, "Let There Be Light" on the seal of UC ?
