The Last Judgment by John Martin 1854.
We are only one week into 2023 and already stories of incredible record-breaking weather events have been dominating the news. Now, before many of you shout me down screaming, " but it's winter, or, it's summer," let me remind you, I wrote "record-breaking," which means it has never happened before or hasn't happened in hundreds or thousands of years.
Just before Christmas, thousands of people became stranded after desperately trying to reach loved ones and families for the Christmas holidays in the US. Thousands of flights were cancelled due to the unprecedented conditions, and millions of people were without power.
It was so cold, farmers claimed winter wheat fields across southwest Kansas, northwest Texas, and Oklahoma were overexposed due to the lack of snow cover, increasing the incidence of winter crop kill, which would be devasting to an already compromised wheat shortage due to the war in Ukraine.
The incredibly powerful Arctic winter storm placed almost 200 million people under weekend weather alerts ahead of the busiest travel days of the year. The alerts stretched from coast to coast and reach as far south as the US-Mexico border and Florida, the Sunshine State. The National Weather Service (NWS) said temperatures of -50F (-45C) and feels-like -70F would hit huge parts of the country. The US was actually much colder than Mars and broke many cold and snow records.
Bill Laughing-Bear dropped a line from Alaska:
Dear Gary, and readers of the Big Wobble,
As North America gets pounded, I have to think man played a part in of all of this. This week I had temperatures down to -35F which is just over -37C if I remember correctly. We have not had these temps in this part of Alaska for 11 years. And on those clear days I watched the chemtrails being added to this northern sky.
Just my thoughts from Alaska.Back in 1990, we had a winter like no other in Holland. Temps reached a frigid min 25C (min 13F). A constant 30 mph bitter north wind blew from the North Sea—I have never known cold like it, I could only stay outside for short spells wrapped up in many layers, folks, it was horrendous.
So how anyone can survive min 35F, (min 37C) I can't even imagine, and, the experts claimed Americans and Canadians endured "feel-like" temps of min 70F (min 55C). This, folks, is unlivable, no human should have to endure temperatures like these, however, 'unlivable' is now normal for many people and especially animals around the world due to extreme weather.
While the US suffered the unlivable cold, and the subsequent misery from flooding, across the pond, Europe resembled another planet entirely. On the first day of 2023, Poland celebrated temperatures more in tune with North Africa causing great concern. Poland can be a very cold country in the winter, however, it has been so mild this winter that the cherry blossom has already begun, a phenomenon which usually occurs in late April, or early May.
Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece have so far enjoyed temperatures in the high 20s C, the low 80s F—Summer beach weather temperature, but it's the first week of January! Here in Holland, temps have been incredibly mild, so mild that trees are opening their buds and small flowers are beginning to bloom, it's great if you hate the winter but when small things stop hibernating this causes perplexity and concern. Something is very wrong. We have one side of the Atlantic smashing cold and wet records and the other side smashing warm and dry records. . .
Let me put this into some kind of perspective.
Let's consider, the fires, hurricanes, floods, cold waves, heatwaves, droughts and storms we are all having to endure recently. An incredible increase in major quakes (so much so that USGS keep cooking the books ), volcanic activity and natural disasters around the world. Add to that the death and massive decline of animal species, the demise of our oceans, crop and soil failure, food shortages and population increase, and throw into the pot a pandemic and the threat of WWIII, and there is no wonder, society is collapsing around us!
Add to all the above and then realise this. . . Our Western ideals have increased to a point where our very own lifestyle is causing us spiritual, mental and physical pain. Yes, it's true, especially for the poor and less educated people.
The very idea of modern Western culture brings us hurt, punishes us and causes remorse. Our breakneck lifestyles inflict physical injury and disease and produce frustration and hopelessness. We find ourselves in a world connected by social media, we are linked to everyone—yet people are rife with loneliness and depression.
Suicides are at record-breaking levels and rising uncontrollably. We are indeed fighting a spiritual war but most of us are unaware we are actually in a fight. What we desire is exactly what is killing us!
Billions of people around the world have been deceived, well, let's be honest here, probably all of us have. And since the Covid virus was announced on New Year's Eve, 2019 our world has quickly escalated into a Hollywood-type B horror movie.How did we get here?
D0 you remember Daniel's prophetic message in Daniel 12?:
1“At that time Michael, the great prince who stands watch over your people, will rise up. There will be a time of distress, the likes of which will not have occurred from the beginning of nations until that time.
That time is fast approaching, please, prepare yourself.
