How Big Money in Politics Blocked U.S. Action on Climate Change

In politics, no piece of carbon dioxide regulation legislation has managed to get very far because of the fossil fuel industry artillery. There stand the sentinels of the fossil fuel industry threatening politicians with political extermination if they dare to budge using big money.big money politics

One Republican senator observed that you look at fossil fuel-funded front groups that are threatening your elimination as a political figure on the one side, and you look over at the other side, and everybody is just sort of standing around looking at the ceiling tiles. Nobody is saying to you, “Look, you got to do the right thing here.

When it came to climate change legislation there was a floodgate of corporate political contributions, much of it in the form of “dark money” whose origins do not have to be disclosed. 

To begin with, the Obama-era pledge made under the Paris agreement to cut emissions 26 percent to 28 percent below 2005 levels. It appears that United States has not been on track to meet the Obama-era pledge anyway for 15 percent of global emissions.

In announcing his decision to withdraw from the Paris accord, President Trump cast it as a matter of putting America first. Trump praised a study showing that the economy would be plunged into darkness if forced to meet Obama’s pledge—a scenario that few, today, take seriously.

Making cost-effective cuts in the emissions that cause climate change is firmly in America’s self-interest and the interest of the whole world crisis

The documentary, a Climate of Change relies on the expert insights of several revered scientists to debunk the skepticism of global warming deniers. Each scientists concurs that further catastrophe can be avoided if our species is willing to take the appropriate steps to act. 

The climate change movement has suffered in part by the inactivity of a younger generation that feels overwhelmed and consumed by daily struggles, and helpless in their ability to affect change within such a far-reaching crisis. 

 It’s not enough to know the problem: you must also know how you can be a part of the solution.  Continue reading Big Money in Politics 2

THE SECOND PENTECOST 2

New Second Pentecost

Second Pentecost 

God is counting the days, the days where He will pour on you like dew reviving you again into a New and Bountiful Garden; this will be known as the New or Second Pentecost; come and kneel all of you and pray to the Lord for the Glorious Event; pray for this Coming.”               August 9, 1988

Vassula Reydon, who is on the podium, received a host of messages from God, which she compiled in her notebooks, called True Life in God. The following excerpts come from her conversations with Jesus:

“Today, I invite you all to pray with fervor for the renewal of the Church, for the second Coming of the Lord: for the second Pentecost                                                                                                                                                 April 22, 1990

New Second Pentecost

“I have little time left now; these Times of Mercy and Grace are almost over; I am not concealing My Plans, nor am I hiding My Face, I am revealing as never before My Face; and you, My beloved ones, your duty is to go and spread these Messages of the Second Pentecost, and what the Spirit teaches.”                                                                             August 6, 1991

“I will send you My Holy Spirit in full force on all mankind, and as a fore sign I will display portents in heaven as never before; there will be a second Pentecost so that My Kingdom on earth will be restored; many of you ask: “when? when will all these things take place?” it is not for anyone to know times or dates that the Father has decided by His own authority.”                                                                                  December 10,1995

AMAZING GLORY of the HOLY SPIRIT 2

 

A VISION OF HEAVEN, HELL AND PURGATORY

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today in China.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the Chinese family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

The World Problem 2

World Problem

–Bertrand Russell

THE WORLD PROBLEM

The World Bank estimates that the world problem is that a quarter of the world is chronically under nourished. It is shocking to know that this problem has been with us for centuries. This problem seems too remote for most people. Hunger continues to initiate the most violent wars. People who are out of work and are starving are the stuff of which dictatorships are made. Yet, no one truly desires anyone to suffer or starve.

A Meaningful Existence

Most of us live for tomorrow: it will be better, richer, wiser and more secure. We are all searching for something that will make our existence more meaningful. Even the ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would have to answer two questions: “Did you bring joy?” and “Did you find joy?” We truly have an obligation to be the best person that we can. Any new learning, which will aid us in obtaining that goal, will benefit  everyone. Each of us has something special to contribute. There is something that each of us can do if we are willing. Finding ways to become involved is a good beginning. We can use the time that we are given to give birth to our potential — our human trademark. We are challenged  to see new possibilities. We are living at a time of abundant new beginnings.  It is actually exciting when people come to grips with their own uniqueness as individuals. We are constantly told that nothing is free and that every investment has to have a return. Yet, over 50% of people volunteer their time at something to improve society.

An Earthly Paradise

The Buddhist tell a story of the frog lodged at the bottom of the well, which cannot  ever understand the limitless expanse of the sky. If we can only step out of our own perceptual traps, we can begin to see the beauty and goodness. An earthly paradise is not some far-off impossible destination. It can be a loving voyage in the here and now. We are responsible for creating our own paradise and the time to start the voyage is NOW.

The Save-the-World Mind Set

We are living through a period of an unprecedented social and technological change.  This rapid advancement in technology and human networks have exponentially opened up new pathways to actualizing one’s passions. People want to broadcast and express themselves and even cultivate a following. There is an increased global awareness and connections to others in remote areas. Many people do not associate helping the poor around the world as a calling from God. They think that Christianity is a laundry list of vague beliefs that have little meaning on how they spend their time. Actually, they lack a deep understanding of their faith and that following Jesus is a way of life..

Many people aspire to science-related careers. Some people assume that science has cornered the world on knowledge: things are only true when they are tested with scientific methods. There is a name for this: scientism. This thinking must not become more important than obedience to God.

Here is what Sir Isaac Newton said about his belief: “ I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily.” He credited his Creator with the existence of the universe. Each moment has a life upon itself with as much potential for joy and happiness as we are willing to bring to it: life is wonderful; joy is our birthright and love is what it is all about.

Love

Having more of anything other than the love for God and neighbor will leave you dissatisfied with relationships and possessions. To love is the greatest of human experience and sooner or later we discover that life without it is empty and meaningless. Love is always worth the effort. Kindness in giving creates love. Each of us bears a torch but we must keep it lit. The hope of tomorrow is that these blazing torches will provide hope for tomorrow. We want to leave the world a better place for our having to be in it.

To Build a Team

Today people don’t want to be only hearers of faith but also doers — to put feet to their faith: action on behalf of others. This is empathy: the ability to understand and take on yourself the burden of others to serve and restore God’s world. God has made all things and He is making all things new for you. So what has God called you to do in partnership with the community of Christ-followers?  How can you be on a mission in the world for Christ, based on what you are gifted to do?

BLESSING OF ILLNESS 2

Untitled-5

BLESSING OF ILLNESS

God doesn’t punish us by sending illness to us. On the contrary, illness forces us to depend on God even though some people, who are ill, may feel bitter initially. In the end, illness forces us to focus on important things in our lives. It teaches us to pray. So there is a blessing of illness.

Real health is inner peace even during the experience of critical illness. This happens when we surrender our illness to God. It is almost as if our illness was a “wake-up call” for our lives to really start. Finding that essence is our return to God. It is the real purpose of our lives. So healing is a return to God and love.

We are spirits and not bodies; we are eternally healthy and we are incapable of sickness from the perspective of the spirit world. The mind is more powerful than the body. It sometimes blocks our capacity to find God. Instead it must be used as a springboard to soar into His arms. We must turn our eyes away from the sickness to the love that lies beyond it. No sickness can diminish our capacity to love.

Sickness is a reflection of our own love that needs to be reclaimed. We must let go of our thoughts of fear and embrace a world of hope and love. This surrender is so gentle you need only whisper it and all the spiritual power of God’s love will rush to your assistance and support. God does His part when we do ours. Continue reading BLESSING OF ILLNESS 2

IN GOD WHOM WE TRUST 2        

          Untitled-7

HOPE AND TRUST 

The Lord has fairly specific plans for us and it is possible to find out what they are. We have to believe IN GOD WHOM WE TRUST: God  is anxious to communicate with us and would do just that if only we would get serious about hearing from Him. The problem is that we are attached to doing our own will. We have to have a real desire to do what God wants. That is Hope and Trust.hope trust

Nothing else in the whole world is worth doing more than the will of God. Of course, if we want to know the Lord’s will, if we want the wisdom, we have got to ask. (James 1:4) We have to seek the Lord’s will while telling Him that we will do it whatever it is. Until we say that prayer of abandonment, the Lord will have difficulty getting through to us. Then the waiting becomes the toughest part of the equation. We have to become skilled in waiting for Him Psalm: 37:7

One form of discernment occurs with a group of people committed to each other. Through coincidences or unexpected happenings one member will think he or she has caught the Lord’s direction. The group will respond to an authentic word when they hear it from a member. There is a peace in their hearts that is hard to mistake. No major moves are made without receiving the Word.

One final word of caution: we have to know it is all right with God if we get it wrong. He can deal with our mistakes. His plan is very flexible. Honest mistakes are part of the learning process. So we shouldn’t take ourselves seriously. God knows we are often imperfect and fallible. We may discover the hard way that something that was not God led at all was a complete waste of time, energy and money.

All the wisdom on earth does not compare to divine wisdom, the gift of God, and insight into His will for all of us. That’s the wisdom that you want. If the Lord has a plan for you, it must be assumed first, that He is willing to convey this wisdom to you, and second, that there is a way that you can get hold of it.

WITHOUT FAITH WE ARE WASTING TIME 2

Faith

FAITH — THE MAGIC OF BELIEVING: 

We can fritter away a great deal of energy with small worries and miss so much of what God has planned for us. Are we still tinkering with what is trivial or foolish?  In fact, without faith, we are wasting our time.

Are we missing out on real new possibilities? Would we not be much happier if we moved deeply with God into relationships and community with others?                                                                                                    
So why do people live out their lives in a way that suggests they are really waiting for their lives to be over in order to be with God for eternity?                                                                                                                                        
Why do people live out their lives in such a way as to become the persons that they wish to be in five or ten years? We are not talking about mentors whose lives we admire. We are talking about now, when we should accept who and what we are in the present? Some refer to this as the Sacrament of the Present Moment.                                          
It seems that we are content with shuffling along getting by with as little of life and experience as we possibly can. But if we live vigorously, the new life that becomes ours is none other than the life of God. God’s presence within life is very real and it is everywhere. One does not go outside life to find God.                                                                        
St. Augustine wrote that wisdom is not what is to come in the future, nor what has been in the past, but what is. Maybe we have to recognize these religious experiences in the matter of everyday with a little more sensitivity.

Can we sharpen the focus of the eyes of faith – in the ordinary? Faith is trusting in the force that moves the universe — it isn’t blind, just visionary.

The universe knows what it is doing and it is on our side if we have faith. Our attempts to direct this force merely interfere with it. In fact, without faith we are wasting time.  Continue reading WITHOUT FAITH WE ARE WASTING TIME 2

EVERY PROBLEM HAS ITS OWN SOLUTION  2

every problem has its own solution

I CAN WITH GOD

 With God we know that we can keep in touch with our own mind and we can get our own lives together.  Without God how else can we do it?  We meet daily stresses and make difficult choices.  Only later do we realize that all these events were God-led.  In fact, it is God that has had to grab us by the hair so that we are able to make new commitments and thereby live more wisely.  So every problem has its own solution.

A crisis may take us to our knees, our most humble thinking. If we had been there to begin with — if we had placed the power of God before our own, putting love before any personal ambition, then our problem may not have developed.

                                     
People don’t always “have it all together” all the time.  It is the wise person who can communicate their experiences of disruptions of relationships or ideas buried deep within.  Then God summons them and they respond and they become wiser.                                                                  
Every time that we are forced up against the absurd, we are compelled to deal with it, to change or grow.  The problem is that the absurd is so absurd – it does not make sense.

Every problem comes bearing its own solution. A crisis may take us to our knees, our most humble thinking. If we had been there to begin with — if we had placed the power of God before our own, putting love before any personal ambition, then our problem may not have developed.

In the end we begin to focus on real problems and situations.  We begin to abandon the fantasies that we have woven concerning how things should go. Continue reading EVERY PROBLEM HAS ITS OWN SOLUTION  2
