The Last Word on Snake Oil

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=xat9xSos_7gWonderful mini history lesson on why modern economies are based upon oil. Alternative energies are abundantly available, yet oil is the medium of choice of the corporations. We all know that our governments are run by the corporations and wall street traders.

  1. Thanks Musemater.

    I was looking at Charlotte Iserbyt's websites a bit today, and posted on some of it. I only wish I had more time! This week in my sociology book I saw the Hegelian Dialectic and manipulations galore! We are getting into “Social stratification: the United States and Global Perspectives” and “Globalization, Inequality, and Development”….heavy sigh…
    In my “Reflections” assignment I really let the teacher have my “thoughts and feelings” on these things whether she wants them or not. Whether she is a willing participant change agent, or simply naif and caught in the web, I'm not sure, I might find out from her reaction to my comments. I know it's going to happen anyway, I sure can't stop it, we are heading for a huge train wreck.

    Are you pre, mid, or post trib? I'm a postie, well, after the 7th trumpet but at the beginning of the 7 bowls or vials (is that considered “mid” trib?)

    Well, it's late, gotta get sleep…thanks for all the info. 🙂

  2. Hi Susan, I am still trying to get that defined, definitely NOT pretrib.

    Don't quite understand timing on the bowls or vials either. My understanding is weak on the Old Testament prophets.

    I definitely believe we will be here through a tribulation including the time after the abomination of desolation, but as I said I don't understand how long that will be. I just have to read the whole Bible more to understand it better. It is strange how so many errors are taught from what is plain to me in;

    Matthew 24: 15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

    16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

    17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

    18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

    19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

    20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

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

    22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

    23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

    24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

    25Behold, I have told you before.

    26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

    27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

    29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

    30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

    31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

    To me this passage proves beyond any doubt that there is NOT a secret pretrib rapture!

    Wow, you are brave taking those courses, it must be interesting and at the same time hard to tolerate. It's not easy to get the educational requirements you need for the certification to get your job when you have to listen to error and memorize it to pass the tests! God bless you & keep you strong in the Word.:)

  3. Hi Again Susan, I've just read some more Bible verses and

    I Thessalonians 5:9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

    makes me think that we won't be here for the wrath of God, but I still don't quite get the timing.
