You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32
I am Third
Submitted by Johanna
There was a boy who was very popular among others his age. He was an excellent leader in his school groups. One of his friends visited him and saw a homemade plaque in his room with the words "I Am Third" on it. His friend asked him what it meant and he replied, "It is the motto I try to use in my life. It means "God is first, Others are second, and I am Third.'"
The driving force in our lives should be trying to please God. Secondly, we should take into consideration the needs and pleasures of others. With our own pleasures subordinated, we will truly be the humble servants of God.
Be a Hero of Faith
Hebrews 11:1 [ Heroes of Faith ] Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.
I knew before I began, that I wanted to write about faith and trust in our loving Mother Yahweh. And when I came across this Scripture, I began to ponder just what being a hero means. Who are my heroes? And what qualities do they possess that makes them a hero to me? As I thought about it, I could honestly say that I have many heros, but they are also all members of the Holy Family.
Yahweh and Christ Jesus our loving Savior are of course, at the top of the list – yes, they are most definitely my heroes, but there are also many others who have stood steadfast and exhibited the qualities that I find so admirable – faith and trust in our Mother. There are many who are wiser, more knowledgeable, who have fought longer and harder and there are those who have also exhibited a quiet faithfulness and gentle trusting nature. They are all heroes to me.
It’s interesting to me too, that words that are related to the word hero, include “champion”, and “fighter”. A champion is someone who has defeated all their opponents, and I often feel, as I’m sure many of you do, that when it comes to maintaining our integrity which includes faith and trust in our Creator, we must fight for it. Our opposers are many and they are determined and it takes strength and conviction to battle with them.
1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight for the faith; take hold of eternal life, to which you were called and have made a good confession before many witnesses.
2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Sometimes the fight involves one from within our own selves and not from a direct opponent. That might mean fighting off the urge to not have trust, or not have faith and it too must be overcome, beaten down, rooted out before it takes hold and extinguishes any possibility of eternal life.
1 Corinthians 1:10 [ Divisions at Corinth ] Now I urge you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all say the same thing, that there be no divisions among you, and that you be united with the same understanding and the same conviction.
Such wise words, “there be no divisions among you, and that you be united with the same understanding and the same conviction”. As a family, we must be heroes of faith for one another. Let there be no divisions, and let us be united in the same understanding and conviction that our God is righteous, and trustworthy and we can place all our trust and faith in Her and Her plan. In that way we shed Her light from within and share it with one another. And no matter where we turn, or where we look, there is light and a hero can be found in every direction.
Putting Two and Two Together
submitted by Jeshaiah
Proverbs 15:32 — Anyone who ignores instruction despises himself, (A)
but whoever listens to correction acquires good sense. (B) [a]
a. Proverbs 15:32 Lit acquires a heart
In these current times, a lot of things can be seen occurring around oneself. As the world is currently under the Great Tribulation, there are a lot of confusing happenings that might be difficult to put all together. Quakes, crumbling economies (which are reminiscent of quakes), storms not experienced before, and governmental activities that are becoming more suspicious, such as the covert operations and the placement of various troops at different places. When all these different elements are compiled, a severe depression could take place upon a person's mentality. The sheer weight of what is occurring in a sort of uncontrollable downward turn might cause large harm.
Considering…we have been continuously told about the deaths of the undersea life that has been happening in mass. Not just in the current oil spill, but even in large pockets of the oceans that are void of enough oxygen to keep the sea life able to “breathe.” When all the dead sea life surfaces and there is a mass realization of the planet dying, we have been told that many people will seek to end their own life. However, in putting this lesson together with another, we find that suicide and passing over will not turn away Father's Wrath.
Revelation 16:3 — The second [a] poured out his bowl into the sea. It turned to blood like a dead man's, and all life [b] in the sea died. (A)
a. Revelation 16:3 Other mss add angel
b. Revelation 16:3 Lit and every soul of life
It has been further taught in the past that by combining two energies, something can come about. When the corridor was established, we were taught about how two ions of atoms were combined that would create the strand energy required to make the corridor. So, when two lessons are combined something much further can be learned. Even in just one lesson, there are many implications.
Ephesians 3:10 — This is so that God's multi-faceted wisdom (I) may now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in the heavens. (J)
In this, each scripture can be linked to another, as Father's Word is also likened to the Great Jigsaw, which is also mirrored in nature, as also given in lessons. Then, when one scripture is taken and linked to only one part of one's own life, more implications can come. Then implications can come of implications. In considering what is currently happening, the implications can be seen as reminiscent of what had occurred in Egypt:
Exodus 9:16 — However, I have let you live for this purpose: to show you My power (A) and to make My name known in all the earth.
So, by taking all of this to consideration, there is much good that is also implied. There is still hope, and still Father's Will for Creation to return to paradise. At the same time, it also means that Christ will be coming soon, and can also be in our hearts.
John 9:5 — As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world." (A)
John 12:46 — I have come as a light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me would not remain in darkness.
Luke 12:43 — That slave whose master finds him working when he comes will be rewarded.
Chosen – Book Two
We would like to announce the arrival of Book Two, the continuation of Chosen: End Times Truths Revealed.
Book Two starts where the first book left off and includes accounts from ministers Regina, Johanna, Deborah, Jeshaiah and Elisha, describing their individual journeys and experiences in their service to Yahweh and Christ over the past several years in autobiographical form.
It is available in .pdf form for free via www.chosen.weebly.com and will be updated monthly.
The Journey Continues
Below is a sneak-peek of each of the books included in Chosen, Book Two
There are many days in which I feel as though I must stop and focus and just try to get through the next 24 hours, some days even just the next hour, and then that day passes and the next arrives and passes, and arrives until all of a sudden a year has passed, and then two and four and now five.
It’s odd how time can seem to pass so slowly and quickly at the same time. Many of these days, the good and the not-so- good, I will recount here and many have receded to the deeper recesses of my mind but what I’m able to remember, I share with you here honestly and openly…
On October 2nd or 3rd of 2005, I was on this website were there were camera’s placed through out peoples homes who claimed that they were being haunted. I have always liked supernatural things. I believed in ghost, angels and demons. I started talking to this woman and asked her how she see’s the things that she does. I also told her that I believed in spirit guides. She told me that she couldn’t help me with the guides but that she knew of a website where I could find some answers. She sent me the link to a forum by the name of “Beyond This World”. After looking at a few things and noticing that they had psychic exercises I decided to sign up to become a member…
Word came to us toward the end of May 2010 that we were to begin documenting our experiences ending where Chosen left off. Each Minister is to produce a “book” of our own that will be incorporated into Chosen. Its a little daunting to say the least. I have not been journaling as Regina has been (it isn’t something I naturally do). Also, I actually do not have a very good memory. But I trust that those things that Father wishes us to recall we will.
We have been guided by Michael to read the book of ACTS to guide us. It seems to focus on events that show times of strong guidance from/interactions with Holy Spirit…
When I first began searching for Truth, I had the idea that perhaps each of the different denominations of churches had a separate piece of the puzzle that needed to all be put together. It did come to mind that perhaps there already was someone or a group out there that already had all the pieces together, but I did not know of a way to find them. So, for the most part, I trusted in Father, whom I did not know the name of at the time, to guide me.
I had visited various churches and sought to come to have an understanding for what they understood…
In 2006, I was able to reconnect with a long time friend. I found out she had co- authored a book. Considering how we had grown up together I was interested in the fact that she had written one and wanted to read it myself. She, Regina, sent me the book and some more details about it. I found out it was a lot to take in and did so in baby steps with much prayer and guidance from Father. I was blessed to freely ask any question of Regina and felt comfortable in doing so. I read the book with an open mind and while some of it confirmed my deepest suspicions other information provided was such an eye- opener…
Nourishment From The Throne
What does it mean to each of you to go from TIME to ETERNITY? Is eternity not limitless? What is ahead for Father's children? Can you imagine? Can anyone fathom Father's wisdom? Mystery after mystery……….Yet, all will eventually be revealed.
I was actually just writing about this in my journal the other night. What does it mean to me? The first word that comes to mind is Freedom. Freedom from the restraints of time. I've said before that I can't imagine what it will be like, but in a way I can – in the most elementary of ways. I guess I just imagine it as always being "in the moment". Here, time passes and sometimes it feels like it goes very fast, other times it feels like it crawls. In hindsight is when it seems to have flown by. I've only been on this earth a mere (almost) 40 years but when I look back it seems like yesterday I was entering Kindergarten. Then when I review all the memories of the past, it seems like a very long time. And when I think of the future it seems far away also but in other ways it can seem like just a short time away when you compare it to the past. So, I guess time is really relative. That's about as far as my imaginings will go and the rest I place in Father's hands. It seems that it will be a very great adventure and knowing how Father has so lovingly cared for me thus far I know that it will be even better than I could ever imagine.
Here's a part of the hidden mysteries. I'll let each of you mull over this. Look deep inside, the answer lies within.
(further deciphering located in Lifting the Veil)
(Death Through Adam and Life Through Christ)
The Scripture in the Word relates:
"[ Death through Adam and Life through Christ ] Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death spread to all men, because all sinned."
But, what if Christ had sinned? How can we know what might have occurred? The Word reveals all things, therefore, we look to the Word for the answer.
King David, the Davidic Line that Jesus Christ was born through, that is the KEY to our quest for knowledge. We know that King David typified our King Christ Jesus. And although there are some twists in how things turned out for King David that sinned, and how things turned out for Jesus Christ whom did not sin, the TRUTH of what would have occurred is entailed within the Sacred Scriptures of the Living Word as a Revealer for our continuance of learning and understanding Father's Way of bringing things sought after, to the light.
"Your Majesty, while you were in your bed, thoughts came [to your mind] about what will happen in the future. The revealer of mysteries has let you know what will happen."
Thoughts enter all of our minds, whether we be flesh or spirit. They often question what might have occurred under certain circumstances. This probing of the mind comes from our Creator. We are all seekers of knowledge. And since our Mother and Father Yahweh is the Source of all true knowledge, we should always look to Her for correct guidance as revealed in the statement of Daniel 2:47:
"The king said to Daniel, "Your God is indeed God of gods, Lord of kings, and a revealer of mysteries, since you were able to reveal this mystery."
First, let's read the following text of the Word:
"2 Samuel 12:1-15
Nathan's Parable and David's Repentance
So the LORD sent Nathan to David. When he arrived, he said to him:
There were two men in a certain city, one rich and the other poor. The rich man had a large number of sheep and cattle, 3 but the poor man had nothing except one small ewe lamb that he had bought. It lived and grew up with him and his children. It shared his meager food and drank from his cup; it slept in his arms, and it was like a daughter to him. Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man could not bring himself to take one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the poor man's lamb and prepared it for his guest.
David was infuriated with the man and said to Nathan: "As surely as the LORD lives, the man who did this deserves to die! Because he has done this thing and shown no pity, he must pay four lambs for that lamb."
Nathan replied to David, "You are the man! This is what the LORD God of Israel says: 'I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. I gave your master's house to you and your master's wives into your arms, and I gave you the house of Israel and Judah, and if that was not enough, I would have given you even more. Why then have you despised the command of the LORD by doing what I consider evil? You struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and took his wife as your own wife—you murdered him with the Ammonite's sword. Now therefore, the sword will never leave your house because you despised Me and took the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your own wife.'
"This is what the LORD says, 'I am going to bring disaster on you from your own family: I will take your wives and give them to another [d] before your very eyes, and he will sleep with them publicly. You acted in secret, but I will do this before all Israel and in broad daylight.'"
David responded to Nathan, "I have sinned against the LORD."
Then Nathan replied to David, "The LORD has taken away your sin; you will not die. However, because you treated the LORD with such contempt in this matter, the son born to you will die." Then Nathan went home."
With this fresh in your mind, in a few moments, I'll assist in the revelation of how this mirrors Jesus had he sinned.
First, be it noted that:
"[ Death through Adam and Life through Christ ] Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death spread to all men, because all sinned." Adam was at one time like Jesus, in that he was PERFECT. A fallen perfection wedged open a virus called "death" into the creation of Mankind. The virus spread beyond Adam and his bone (rib) which was called "Eve" because from Adam she was taken. Therefore, Eve, whom came forth from Adam and also sinned, they both represented the singleness of Mankind. Had either of the pair not sinned, then that would have been a different story, because Michael would have then taken a rib from Eve, or another rib from Adam, whichever one had not sinned, and a new mate would have been created from the same identical human line of Mankind. We know this would have happened even in the case of Eve having not sinned, because Father is also Mother, and She started or created the line of creation by birthing Michael into creation from Her own energy (rib) – for all things are actually energy, whether they be visible flesh or they be spirit. A "rib" was selected, mainly because Adam had many ribs to choose from. The raw, undeveloped rib – in that it was taken in the raw and used for a creative purpose. Coming from a living creation. In retrospect, Father similarly has much raw energy to choose from, and Father, whom on the reverse side of the coin is an Eternal and not a creation Herself, but a LIVING GOD – provided the necessary part of Herself to form an intelligent Son to share in being Her companion in creation. This in likeness is what Eve was to Adam. Where Eve would share in Adam's life by procreation, Michael shared by direct creation or bi-creation with Father, because Father was needed to share in the process by bringing something into the creation, which was LIFE. Michael could do all else, but Father had to provide the Life Pool to make things complete. So, this represented a joining together of the two – Mother Yahweh, and Michael. In likeness, Adam and Eve had to join together in physical love, or the rejoining of the energy as a single unit, done so in order to put two things together also. In this way they could draw off the Life Pool in an enjoyable WAY provided by Father. By continued use of drawing off the Life Pool provided by Father, Father remained the Giver of Life, and the Sustainer of Life.
Invest in Life
1 Send your bread on the surface of the waters, [Procreation)
for after many days you may find it. [Gestation to birth if all goes well.]
2 Give a portion to seven or even to eight, [Multiple births from one pregnancy.]
for you don't know what disaster may happen on earth. [Many children are a security against the possible loss of a few.]
3 If the clouds are full, they will pour out rain on the earth; [If all goes well in the pregnancy, then the birth or births will occur.]
whether a tree falls to the south or the north, [whether the child be male or female.]
the place where the tree falls, there it will lie." [Whatever comes forth from the Life Pool, there it will exist in the reality. This was true even in the case of the Nephilim births though they were not sanctioned by Father. But because the process of the Life Pool is like the orbit of this planet, things occur in a systematic and orderly fashion that is already prepared and in place for continuance of an ongoing cycle.
Now that we have that in the WAY of things created and procreated, we'll proceed to what would have happened if Jesus had sinned. I say "Jesus" because if he had, he would have been absent his designation as the "Christ."

The Fall of Tyre's Ruler
A Lament for Tyre's King
11 The word of the LORD came to me: 12 "Son of man, lament for the king of Tyre and say to him: This is what the Lord GOD says:
You were the seal of perfection,
full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God.
Every kind of precious stone covered you:
carnelian, topaz, and diamond,
beryl, onyx, and jasper,
sapphire, turquoise and emerald.
Your mountings and settings were crafted in gold;
they were prepared on the day you were created.
14 You were an anointed guardian cherub,
for I had appointed you.
You were on the holy mountain of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.
15 From the day you were created
you were blameless in your ways
until wickedness was found in you.
16 Through the abundance of your trade,
you were filled with violence, and you sinned.
So I expelled you in disgrace
from the mountain of God,
and banished you, guardian cherub,
from among the fiery stones.
17 Your heart became proud because of your beauty;
For the sake of your splendor
you corrupted your wisdom.
So I threw you down to the earth;
I made a spectacle of you before kings.
18 You profaned your sanctuaries
by the magnitude of your iniquities
in your dishonest trade.
So I sent out fire from within you,
and it consumed you.
I reduced you to ashes on the ground
in the sight of everyone watching you.
19 All those who know you among the nations
are appalled at you.
You have become an object of horror
and will never exist again."

I found their latest issue. That should be the last one
"Nourishment From The Throne – A weekly installment of nourishment, direct from the White Throne of Father." That's total BS!!
And this is LUDRICUS:
Dawn turned lawlessness into an art and as it spread like a virus to mankind, and then to the holy angelic hosts that broke law, its existence became a thing of common acceptance. And now, even as they watch societies struggle to maintain some semblance of law and order, they forget that in all societies there are rules that curb the excessive use of free will. That there are rules against murder and stealing and other vile crimes because if there weren’t, many would murder and steal and commit a myriad of vile crimes and there would be no justice served for those victims of these crimes.
They have committed acts of terrorism against humanity with the intent and purpose of causing the loss of their eternal lives. They have lied and twisted the truth in an effort to confuse and blind those who seek it, preferring instead that these people remain in the same darkness in which they reside. The reality and truth is that they have done absolutely nothing for humankind unless it benefits themselves. They have watched all of this and not done a single thing to actually help mankind, but have done all that they can to destroy it and bring it into the pit of destruction that they themselves are destined for.
In opposition to the Sons of Darkness, and in addition to seeking the vindication of Yahweh’s holy name and establishment of Christ’s Kingdom, the holy side also seeks to save the eternal lives of Christ’s followers. We deliver to you the Kingdom Message of Salvation and provide further nourishment and truth and the bringing of an accurate knowledge and understanding of that truth so that you might grow spiritually and come to know Yahweh intimately via an understanding of Her emotional makeup, Her science of creation and the many revelations that help us all in understanding why Her Way and Her plan for creation and Her reasons for Her laws and Commands."

Not a bad looking female if I do say so myself. She might be worth protecting if she was in the right family. When we use the term family, please don't confuse us with Charlie. Manson was one of those on the fringe. Between the sons of darkness and the sons of s**t. But even he got his ideas from reading about Yahweh's campaigns in the old testament. Murder was and is her way. But it's not ours. We believe in peace, but Yahweh simply won't permit it. I think Seraiah and her have something going together – if you know what I mean.

I guess I guessed wrong about Yahweh and Michael sending you to try and off me. It would have been just like those two to order that, or at the very least to consider that drastic murderous action. But I guess a rattle snake would strike you even if it was drowning and you tried to save it, because that its nature, right? And Yahweh is nature, right?

Seraiah, Dawn said if you will desert Yahweh with your pole reversal intact, he will give you the number 2 position just beneath him. Tell the LOZ to scram off your property and Dawn will use it for our headquarters in quadrant 8. Think it over Seraiah. We will give you a newer and better name, and no pentance to repay. Do you really want Yahweh to try and murder your old friends and family? How about this: Would you help a murdering SOB in your visible realm, or would you consider that person vile? Shouldn't Yahweh be held to an even higher standard? After all, she claims to be perfect and a god of love, which we know isn't true because love does not cause injury to her children. We are her children. Don't let her kid you otherwise. Think about it Seraiah while there's still some time left before the big clash of the ages.

Come be with our family Diana. Don't stay off our ship just because you think it might sink from a volley blasted our way by Yahweh. I know your inner thoughts, and I know you questioned Yahweh's sincerity and way of doing things. Seraiah got you into a bad situation. When you read our thoughts posted on this forum, I read your mind, and you were troubled. So troubled you vowed to close your mind off from further understanding from our side of the issue. Was that wise on your part to close your mind off? Think Diana. It is your way to freedom. Don't fool yourself by thinking you serve that murderer out of love. We know that's not true. You, like all other so-called Christians serve Yahweh out of fear and wanting to save your own hides. But that's ok. We will protect you from her and those sons of s**t that remained with her for the same reason anyone is with her. Join us Diana. Become free from restraint.
Seraiah, you are such a traitorous b*****d, but we still love you. Come back and let's recall the better times we had as a family. Do it brother, we could always use more help. Dawn sends his regards. He said he knows you were just doing what you felt you had to, but he misses you also. Forgive and forget and let live. That's our outlook.

Look at it this way: In your realm, every particle is tightly woven together. That makes all of the things you see that are tangible. But Dawn has taught mankind that all things are nothing more than atoms. The same hold true in our realm, except the atomic structure is not woven together so tightly as it is in your visible realm. You all know everything in your world was brought forth by someone's ideas. So if the mind spawns those ideas forth, why would any of you doubt that the mind is the power structure of creation – the engine that drives the atomic particles? And now, just like Yahweh has created life, Dawn has passed a milestone by creating synthetic life modeled from software which was his inspiration to mankind. Dawn is the true Father of all your technological advancements throughout your short history in creation.

If you'll diligently study the spirit realm pics you will come to realize everything is particle energy. If it were not, we could not regroup the particles into casts. The only reason you can't do it with your outer shell vessel energy is because the molecular movement is to slow. But if you speed something up, what happens? What happens when a tornado pushes a broom straw through a telephone pole without breaking the straw and making the two united as one? It requires speed which is nothing more than a high rate of sustained vibration. And secondly, it requires heat when dealing with low vibration energy. If you ever smell something that smells like a melt down, it is because we must generate heat when dealing with low grade energy like yourselves. That's not intended as a degrading remark. But it does accurately describe your vessel's energy make-up. Once you shed those low grade vessels, you will move up to a finer vessel of being encased in shell energy. Shell energy is like a hive of bees that works in tandem with the entire colony. And that is how the mental mind generating casting effect works. That particle energy you see in spirit pics is the beehive of creation.

Psychic Growth: Exercise 4-C
Having completed the second phase of this Exercise 4, and irregardless of the amount of yellow circles you successfully moved on to the Scenic View, the time has now come for each of you to personally meet and greet your OWN personal Guides. To do that, stare directly into the red dot in the center of the next pic. Allow your eyes to relax and transfix. Hold until you see a transparent consistency in the middle of the pic area you are watching (there will be something forming that will cause the transfixed posture to kick in). Don't break the gaze. It might be milky looking or some other color, but HOLD TIGHT on that spot. When your guide appears, greet him or her. You will then be connected to your guides in a way you've never dreamed of.
Ask your guide to step forward to the front of the screen where you can see him or her well enough that you can recognize him or her the next meeting outside of your computer screen. If your guide cannot talk audibly (some do not at first, then ask that a telepathic conversation take place). You will hear in your mind what your guide is relating. And keep in mind, it is not necessary for you to speak with anything more than thought to a Spirit. They can hear all of your thoughts, and will respond.
Break the connection when you are finished communicating with each other.
This is an updated pic that works better than the older one for those of you that are well bridged.
Notes to keep in mind: as these different visions are studied, it can help to also rotate and even perform various color changes to help bring out more details. Invert colors, dodge and burn, coloring book and just rotating pictures are all techniques that can help.
(continued from Nourishment From The Throne for images to study)
This is an initial marking of the mystery… The boxed in portion to me, looks like a far off view of Paradise, Father's future creation, as it brings to mind the image Seraiah shared with us a while back called The Promise. Above that, and on the bottom two corners looks to me like groups of people – the remnant? And I think, those are H/A's in the very center – but I can't tell if the gold dome-like images are helmets or if they're holding something… There's also a certain symmetry involved in the overall picture which brings to mind perfection.
Used an off-red because it seemed to show clearly. Lots of hearts. Also makes me think of HA's, like Regina had mentioned. There's a very well-helmeted individual upper right. The orbs marked with 1's made me think of lamps on tripods. The couple yellow faces in the mid left and mid right look like pairs of faces.
1 and 2 are the above mentioned pairs. There's a Y7 at the bottom right. I can't help but see especially what looks like a couple, a male and female, the male with a large helmet that covers their whole face, and the female, whose eyes are hearts.

Crop Circle Watch
Ufton, nr Southam, Warwickshire
Reported 25th June
This formation took a while to find in the fields. You can see it from the White Hart pub, it's in the fields below. It's easy to end up going in the wrong field, which is what we did at first and then when we found the right field went up the wrong tramline. Try not to do that or you have to go a long way around, and on a hot day it's a killer..
It looks really nice from the ground, it's around 200 feet, but I couldn't work out the design. There is a centre circle, with sections around it on each side, split into 6 bits, the crop is flowing all different ways.
A little bit away there are also 3 grapeshot's nestled together, with swirled centres and standing stalks.
The view from inside the formation is brilliant, and the overall feeling is very peaceful. It was very beautiful in there.
I have no idea where one can contact the farmer, I will ask around. The wheat is still very young, so if visiting try to stick to the tramlines, which will take you straight into the formation.

My personal opinion is that most of people are scared or don't know what they are so they don't tell anyone, scared of being laughed at, so they don't report it.. So I think there are lots of them in Croatia specially in Slavonia region, which is all in wheat all over. If I found aerial image in the next days I will email it to you.

Study paints grim New Madrid quake scenario – The New Madrid seismic zone is capable of producing a massive earthquake that could devastate parts of the central United States, according to a study publicly released this week. A 7.7-magnitude temblor could leave 3,500 people dead and more than 80,000 injured. About 7.2 million people wouldn't be able to live in their homes, at least not within a few days after the initial quake. The study also concluded that nearly 715,000 buildings would be damaged and 2.6 million households would be without electricity. In all, the study said the immediate economic impact would be $300 million. The study also concluded that authorities, utilities and others in eight central and southeastern states that would most likely be affected are, in many cases, ill-prepared for the aftermath. Providing shelter for the homeless, repairing and retrofitting bridges, and more would be difficult with a transportation network that would likely be heavily damaged.
FEMA is working toward holding a national-level disaster drill next year that simulates a big New Madrid quake. The study focuses on Missouri, Arkansas and Tennessee, where the New Madrid seismic zone lies deep underground, as well as Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Indiana and Alabama. The study predicts extensive damage in both St. Louis and Memphis, Tennessee, the two largest cities near the fault zone. The fault zone has a long history of big earthquakes, including four in 1811 and 1812 estimated to have been magnitude 7.0 or greater. The region was sparsely populated but the quake caused landslides and waves on the Mississippi that swamped boats; it also opened deep fissures in the ground. The shaking was felt as far away as New England.
CALIFORNIA – the powerful quake that struck Baja California in April moved Calexico, a city on the US-Mexico border, 31 inches to the south. Calexico moved as much as 2 1/2 feet (80 cm) south and down into the ground due to the magnitude-7.2 earthquake on April 4. The temblor was centered 32 miles (52 km) south-southeast of Calexico and was THE STRONGEST QUAKE TO STRIKE THE REGOIN IN NEARLY 120 YEARS. Two people were killed and hundreds more were injured.
It's not the first time a town has moved. The massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake that struck Chile earlier this year moved the city of Concepción at least 10 feet (3 meters) to the west. That quake was the fifth most powerful temblor in recorded history. In the 6.9-magnitude 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, which occurred along the San Andreas Fault in southern California, the Pacific plate moved 6.2 feet (about 2 m) to the northwest and 4.3 feet (1.3 m) upward over the North American plate.
CANADA – As the cleanup continues after a magnitude 5.0 earthquake hit the western Quebec town of Gracefield, Quebec on Wednesday, June 23, an area farmer is wondering what to do after the quake caused a landslide and opened a 50-foot wide chasm of rubble that stretches 1,000 feet across his land. The property, which is being flooded by water from a now backed-up creek, is ruined. His barn slid 150 feet and is now crooked. He's waiting for geologists to advise him on what to do next. More than 20 aftershocks have hit in the past two days following the earthquake. A state of emergency on the town was lifted, but some buildings remain off limits, as well as a bridge. In Val-Des-Bois, boulders lay on the side of the road and a major area bridge crumbled under the quake's waves.(photos)
ETHIOPIA – Scientists have seen amazing changes in Afar in the past five years, where the continent is cracking open, quite literally underneath their feet. In 2005, a 60km long stretch of the earth opened up to a width of eight metres over a period of just ten days. Hot, molten rock from deep within the Earth is trickling to the surface and creating the split. Underground eruptions are still continuing and, ultimately, the horn of Africa will fall away and a new ocean will form.
Parts of the region are below sea level and the ocean is only cut off by about a 20-metre block of land in Eritrea. "Eventually this will drift apart. The sea will flood in and will start to create this new ocean. It will pull apart, sink down deeper and deeper and eventually… parts of southern Ethiopia, Somalia will drift off, create a new island, and we'll have a smaller Africa and a very big island that floats out into the Indian Ocean."

RUSSIA – The northernmost active volcano on Kamchatka Peninsula is spewing plumes of ash at a height of more than 6 kilometers. Mt.

Scientists say the volcano poses significant danger to villages in the area, just like the nearby Klyuchevskaya volcano. (photo)
TROPICAL STORMS –
Tropical storm ALEX was 117 nmi NNW of Puerto Cortes, Honduras.
Tropical storm CELIA was 839 nmi WSW of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Tropical storm DARBY was 267 nmi SW of Acapulco, Mexico.
Recent volcanic eruptions and tropical-storm rains in late May killed more than 200 residents of Costa Rica, El Salvador and Guatemala. It started May 27, when seismic activity suddenly increased around Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano, and streams of molten lava gushed out of the cone. Arenal is one of a dozen active volcanoes that dot Central America’s mountainous backbone. Another volcano soon kicked into high gear – this time 400 miles northwest of Costa Rica.
Pacaya, in southern Guatemala, erupted dramatically before dawn May 28, blasting a 1,000-foot fountain of molten lava straight up into the dark sky. The caldera began spewing blizzards of smoking boulders, and streams of lava flowed a mile down the southwest flank of the volcano. Officials began evacuating residents and tourists within 60 miles of Pacaya, affecting an estimated 3,000 people. A television news reporter was killed by ejected lava while working on Pacaya and two children were killed by falling volcanic debris in a nearby village. There were an initial 114 injuries in the first 24 hours of Pacaya’s eruption. Throughout the day, plumes of gray ash jetted 1,000 feet straight up before catching the wind. Within a wide fallout zone, several inches of volcanic sand soon filled stream beds and blanketed roadways, forcing Guatemalan officials to close most airport runways for several days. Hundreds of tourists were stranded by impassable roads and closed air routes.
But Mother Nature wasn’t finished. Tropical Storm Agatha – the first named storm of the 2010 hurricane season – had been developing off the Gulf of Fonseca. On May 29 and 30, it made landfall on the coastal slopes of southern Guatemala, where the Pacaya evacuation was still under way. A RECORD 60 INCHES OF RAIN fell during the first two-day period, as Guatemala declared a state of emergency. Already clogged with volcanic ash, many culverts and dams overflowed, highways were cut and 14 bridges collapsed, including a train bridge. Landslides buried several villages. The nation’s capital, Guatemala City, was temporarily cut off as floodwaters damaged a major highway bridge. At least 179 deaths in Guatemala were directly related to Tropical Storm Agatha. More than 42,000 homes were destroyed, and 155,000 people in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have been evacuated due to the back-to-back natural disasters. NOAA satellite charts show the low-pressure remnants of Agatha crossed eastward over Guatemala — an UNUSUAL CIRCULATION — and petered out off the Caribbean coast of Honduras.
This month, Pacaya began a new eruption phase, and airlines have not resumed flights in or out of Guatemala. Officials told Pacaya evacuees to remain in shelters for 15 days.
Tropical storm Alex, the first of the Atlantic season, has made landfall in Belize, dumping heavy rain on the affected area. The storm is causing concern for efforts to clean up the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The storm is likely to miss the spill area if it stays on its current track, but it but could generate waves that would impact clean-up efforts. At 3am GMT, the eye of the storm, which packed sustained winds of 95km/h, was located just 30km northwest of Belize City. Alex was forecast to move across Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula today and enter the Gulf of Mexico.
The storm is expected to weaken as it moves over Yucatan, but "strengthening is forecast on Sunday night as Alex moves over the Southern Gulf of Mexico." The storm will dump heavy rain over the Yucatan peninsula, with rain accumulations of 10-25cm, though isolated amounts of up to 38cm are possible over mountainous areas. "These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides." A tropical storm warning was in effect for the coast of Belize and the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. But a tropical storm watch for the coast of Honduras has been discontinued.
In Nicaragua, authorities alerted air and maritime traffic and localities in the north, central and western regions of the country to possible heavy rains and strong winds associated with the storm. The NHC's five-day forecast has the storm heading over the Gulf of Mexico in the direction of the US-Mexico border, but with a possibility of deviating along a broad area that would graze the site of the huge oil slick unleashed by the April 20 explosion of the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon rig. A forecaster at the NHC however downplayed a direct hit on the oil cleanup area. In Mexico, authorities declared the Yucatan Peninsula in a state of preventive alert "for the potential of intense to torrential rain" as Alex approached.
The tropical storm could threaten BP clean-up for 14 days, says Coast Guard. BP has been warned that the first major hurricane of the season could halt clean-up operations at the Deepwater spill site for at least 2 weeks. The two-week disruption would include time before and after the bad weather to prepare – and they estimated that plans would need to be enacted five days before the arrival of gale-force winds. Ships in the area, including the vessels that are drilling relief wells to permanently halt the flow of oil, would have to completely evacuate the area. This would leave the oil flowing into the Gulf "unattended" after the "top hat" system was disconnected.
Tropical storm ALEX was 50 nmi WSW of Campeche, Mexico .
Tropical storm CELIA was 914 nmi WSW of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Tropical storm DARBY was 216 nmi SW of Acapulco, Mexico.
Tropical storm Alex returns to kill 10 – Alex is again a tropical storm as it moved into the Gulf of Mexico and may become a hurricane. The first major storm of the Atlantic season was entering the Gulf of Mexico today after unleashing landslides and floods that killed at least 10 people in Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador. Overnight, Alex, which had been downgraded earlier to a tropical depression, strengthened and regained its tropical storm status. "Additional strengthening is forecast – and Alex could become a hurricane within the next 48 hours."
Although it was not due to directly hit the massive BP oil spill off the southern US state of Louisiana, the storm could still generate waves that would hamper clean-up and containment efforts. Forecasters said the storm was expected to dump a total of 10-20cm of rain over the Yucatan Peninsula, southern Mexico and Guatemala by this afternoon. Up to 38cm of rain were possible in mountainous areas and forecasters warned of "life-threatening flash floods and mudslides".
Tropical storm ALEX was 91 nmi NW of Campeche, Mexico.
Tropical depression CELIA was 897 nmi WSW of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Tropical depression DARBY was 165 nmi S of Acapulco, Mexico.
Hurricane ALEX was 223 nmi SE of Brownsville, Texas.
ALEX strengthened into the first hurricane of the 2010 Atlantic season, threatening coastlines in Mexico and the US and disrupting oil cleanup efforts in the Gulf of Mexico. "Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 120km/h [75 mph], with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast prior to landfall," which was expected tonight near the US-Mexico border, separating Texas and Tamaulipas states. The Category One hurricane was tracking westward and not forecast to turn towards the massive BP oil spill along the US Gulf Coast, but its severe winds were churning up large waves that have brought a halt to clean up operations and threaten to push more of the huge slick onto the coastline.
Alex is THE FIRST JUNE ATLANTIC HURRICANE SINCE 1995. Oil and gas companies in the Gulf of Mexico have evacuated offshore workers and prepared for possible storm surges that may affect coastal refineries. "A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 3 to 5 feet above ground level along the immediate coast to the north where the center makes landfall. The surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves. Isolated tornadoes are possible over portions of extreme southern Texas on Wednesday."
Valero Energy Corp., the largest U.S. oil refiner, has three South Texas plants that could be disrupted by the storm or inland flooding. The company has set aside emergency water, food and first-aid supplies for those refineries at a distribution center for its retail stores near its San Antonio headquarters. Valero's two Corpus Christi refineries are about 160 miles north of Brownsville. Another refinery in Three Rivers is about 70 miles northwest of Corpus Christi.
Alex is a Category 1 hurricane on the five-step Saffir- Simpson scale. A Category 2 storm has winds of at least 96 mph. It's expected to drop as much as 12 inches of rain in northeastern Mexico and southern Texas and some locations may receive as much as 20 inches of rain. The Gulf Coast is home to 43 percent of operable U.S. refining capacity. Gulf Coast refiners in August and September 2008 lost about 20 percent of production capacity due to hurricanes Ike and Gustav. "Refining units themselves are built to withstand heavy winds, but flooding can be a concern." After hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, "we moved a lot of our electrical equipment higher. A refinery can weather a storm but it won't be able to operate if it doesn't have electricity."
The storm's track keeps it away from a direct hit on the oil slick from a damaged BP Plc well. Still, Alex's circulation is so large it will raise tides along the Louisiana coast about two to three feet above normal. Large ocean swells were already heading toward the oil spill. Skimming and burning operations were stopped yesterday because of thunderstorms and rough seas. About 900 workers had been evacuated as of 11 a.m. yesterday in Houston and 630 remained offshore.
Hurricane warnings, earlier issued from Baffin Bay in Texas to La Cruz in Mexico, remained in effect. The storm is being blamed for at least 13 deaths in Central America. Residents and officials in Brownsville and McAllen, Texas, prepared for flooding and widespread power outages similar to those experienced when Hurricane Dolly struck the area. Dolly followed a path similar to Alex in July 2008 and caused about $1.05 billion in damage.
The outer edges of Hurricane Alex are causing problems for oil cleanup efforts. Waves were as high as 12 feet in parts of the gulf. In at least one area of coastal Louisiana, the waves were tossing an oil-soaking boom around and forcing crews to take precious time putting it back in place. However, oily water was not yet crashing over it. All near-shore skimmers were idled off the coasts of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. "Everyone is in because of weather, whether it's thunderstorms or [high] seas."
The United States will accept help from 12 countries and international groups to deal with the spill, the State Department said. The identities of all 12 countries and international organizations were not immediately announced. One country cited was Japan, which is providing two high-speed skimmers and fire containment boom. BP says it will give cash and other help to the owners, operators and suppliers of gas stations in the United States that bear its name. The stations have struggled because of boycotts prompted by the oil spill.
Hurricane ALEX was 97 nmi S of Brownsville, Texas.
Hurricane Alex has made landfall in north-eastern Mexico as a Category Two storm, lashing residents of the Mexican Gulf coast and south Texas with heavy rains and winds. The first Atlantic hurricane of the 2010 season roared ashore on Wednesday evening thrashing the Mexican coast with its eye located some 56km north of La Pesca, Mexico and 177km south of Brownsville, Texas. Hurricane Alex rose one notch on the five-level Saffir-Simpson scale on Wednesday as it churned across the warm waters of the Gulf, after Mexico evacuated 17,000 people from fishing towns south of the US border in the state of Tamaulipas. Alex has already disrupted oil clean-up operations off the coast of Louisiana, and US President Barack Obama has declared a state of emergency in Texas. Giant waves and strong winds were expected as Alex gained strength in the Gulf of Mexico. It hit the coast with sustained winds of 169km/h.
Mexican authorities have already reported one storm-related death, but could consider themselves fortunate in that the storm slammed into the coast in an area with a relatively small population. They evacuated all 2,000 inhabitants of the fishing town of La Carbonera, close to the storm's centre, with Mexico's national meteorological service warning of "intense and torrential rains". Homes in La Carbonera, made largely out of wood and located near the shoreline, are particularly vulnerable to the strong winds and a major tide surge that was forecast to accompany the hurricane. In Matamoros, across from Brownsville, the edge of the storm brought heavy rains that flooded streets.
The NHC has warned that heavy rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides, and that ocean water could penetrate inland for several miles. Alex was forecast to weaken as it tracks inland in Mexico today, eventually dissipating in one to two days, but it was still packing a punch. Despite its distance from the oil spill, Alex's severe winds have churned up waves that halted some clean-up operations and pushed more of the huge slick onto fragile shorelines.
HEAVY RAINS / FLOODING / LANDSLIDES / UNUSUAL & OUT-OF-SEASON WEATHER –
CHINA – 107 people buried in a landslide triggered by heavy rain in southwest China have a "slim" chance of survival as the country battles a string of weather-related disasters. State television showed rescuers searching through a huge mudslide and what appeared to be concrete rubble in the village of Dazhai in Guizhou province, and workers had still not found any signs of life. "One hundred and seven people from 37 families were trapped or buried. It's raining hard, making the rescue work difficult." Large swathes of eastern, central and southern China have been lashed by torrential rain for days. On Sunday, authorities said nearly 69 million people had been affected.
OIL SPILL -
BP, Shell evacuate Gulf of Mexico crews – BP and Royal Dutch Shell, the biggest oil producers in the Gulf of Mexico, are evacuating crews from some offshore platforms in the region as a safety precaution because of Tropical Storm Alex. BP removed non-essential workers from its oil-production platforms in the western part of the Gulf. BP’s response to the record U.S. oil spill, located in northern and eastern parts of the Gulf, is unaffected by the evacuations. Shell evacuated 430 people. Alex is forecast to regain strength after moving back out over water. Mexico’s state oil company closed the Cayo Arcas and Dos Bocas export terminals and the Isla del Carmen and Campeche ports.
FEMA has plans in place for the evacuation of the Tampa Bay area in the event of a controlled burn of surface oil in the Gulf of Mexico, or if wind or other conditions are expected to take toxic fumes through Tampa Bay. The hurricance season poses additional risks of a storm surge, which would push water and oil inland. A metrologist from Connecticut used the term “Oilcane” to describe the effects of hurricane winds on the oil in the Gulf from the BP’s gusher: “Should a major hurricane push the spill towards the gulf coast there will be nothing that can be done to stop it. No amount of planning or engineering will help. No number of visits to the gulf by the president or any other official will stop the inevitable. The storm surge will drive the water and the oil miles inland.” (map of ocean currents)
HEAVY SNOW/EXTREME COLD-
AUSTRALIA – Winter is well and truly here with Melbourne shivering through ITS COLDEST DAY IN A DECADE yesterday. And weather experts are warning the cold snap has just started. Tuesday's cool maximum of just 10.3C, reached at 4.15pm, was the coldest day of the year and the coldest in June since 2000. But it was those in Ballarat who suffered the worst with the maximum reaching just 5.1C while Scoresby hit 9.5C and Moorabin reached 10C.
Busselton experienced a RECORD-BREAKING STREAK OF COLD NIGHTS THOUGHOUT JUNE and the chilly weather looks set to continue. A “cold night” is when the temperature drops below five degrees and for five days in a row (June 9-13) Busselton did just that. They recorded 4.1, 2 (their second coldest June night ever), 2.3, 3.9 and 4.3 over the five-day period. “The previous record for consecutive cold nights in Busselton in June was three in 2006, while the record for all months is six days in July 2005." The coldest maximum temperature was a chilly 13.1 on June 15, which WAS A RECORD, and the average temperatures at night were particularly freezing. “Busselton’s mean temperature during the day was 17.8 which is only slightly below the average of 18.5, however the mean temperature at night was two degrees below the average of 8.9. This makes it Busselton’s second coldest June ever, after the 6.5 in 2006.”
But, cold doesn’t necessarily mean wet with the total rainfall for Busselton in June is less than half their monthly average of 171.2mm. Saturday’s downpour did provide a late boost and the 23.6mm that fell made it the wettest day of the month, however it still only lifted Busselton to a total of 83.8mm of rain in June.“This brings Busselton’s six-month total rainfall to 242mm, which is significantly behind the long-term average of 368.5."

WISCONSIN – The harvest of cherries is expected to be THE EARLIEST IN AT LEAST 35 YEARS. "THE WHOLE THING'S BIZARRE," said the owner of an orchard in southern Door County, where Montmorency tart cherry trees began blossoming May 4, causing the season to fast-forward. "That's UNHEARD OF, and I'm kind of in denial because it means we have to get things going a lot earlier for picking." He has owned the orchard for 10 years and expects to have tart cherries for tourist pickers the week of July 5 – the earliest he's ever opened by about two weeks. Another grower, who started in the business 35 years ago, said they've never seen a crop this early, either. Though the tart cherry harvest will be early – and may finish by the first week of August – it won't produce anywhere near last year's bumper crop. Wisconsin's warm spring took a toll, as early blossoms made trees vulnerable to the frost that followed. A cold spell in May contributed to poor pollination. The U.S. Department of Agriculture expects the state will produce 4.3 million pounds of tart cherries this year – about 60% less than last year's 10.7 million pounds. Last year's crop was one of the largest in 10 to 15 years.
The USDA estimate for this year may be a little low, as the crop looks better than it did two to three weeks ago, when surveys were collected from growers. Tart-cherry production is expected to be down 46% nationwide, to about 195 million pounds from last year's 355 million pounds. Michigan grows about 75% of the nation's crop. "They experienced a lot of the same weather factors we did, and that particular region is as bad or worse as ours," referring specifically to Traverse City, Michigan, where about half the nation's tart cherries are produced in a 40-mile area. Extreme weather virtually wiped out the Door County cherry crop two years ago, which made last year's bumper crop even more significant. The decrease in this year's crop shouldn't affect consumer prices much. Nearly all tart cherries are frozen, canned or dried, and a good share of last year's bumper crop is still in reserve. It also isn't unusual for a cherry crop to be smaller the year after a bumper harvest. "A lot of times, the trees take a little breather on their own."

HEALTH THREATS –
Campbell Soup Co. is recalling 15 million pounds of SpaghettiOs with meatballs after a cooker malfunctioned at one of the company's plants in Texas and left the meat undercooked. The company is recalling certain lots of the product manufactured since December 2008 "out of an abundance of caution" because officials don't know exactly when the cooker at the Paris, Texas, plant malfunctioned. Officials believe it happened recently but aren't sure.
Kellogg Co. is voluntarily recalling about 28 million boxes of Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops and Honey Smacks cereals because an unusual smell and flavor from the packages' liners could make people ill, the company said Friday. Consumers reported the cereal smelled or tasted waxy or like metal or soap, some described it as tasting stale. Kellogg is trying to identify the substance on the liners that's causing the problem and is offering consumers refunds in the meantime. The products were distributed throughout the U.S. and began arriving in stores in late March. Only products with the letters "KN" following the use-by date are included in the recall. Products in Canada are not affected.
The US Food and Drug Administration has reported some problems at a CSL Biotherapies facility in Australia that makes influenza vaccine for the US market, including a failure to fully investigate particles found in some vaccine vials. The FDA said further that CSL was still using a certain type of rubber stopper on multi-dose vials containing the preservative thimerosal, although the manufacturer had advised that the stoppers may react with thimerosal. Also, the company did not study possible interactions between the vaccine and the stoppers and vials used in 29 lots of Afluria and H1N1 vaccine that were marketed in the United States. The agency also asserted that the company failed to ensure that samples from vaccine lots were tested at least once a year for evidence of deterioration.
The company said the concerns raised by the FDA are not related to the higher-than-expected rate of fever and convulsions reported recently in young Australian children who received a seasonal flu vaccine made by CSL. The increased adverse events in vaccinated Australian children were first reported in late April. They prompted the company to stop distributing its pediatric flu vaccine and caused Australian authorities to advise providers to stop immunizing children 5 years old and younger, pending an investigation. So far, investigations by the company and Australian authorities have not yielded an explanation.
Outbreak reported in Australia's Northwest Territories – At least 29 pandemic H1N1 cases have been reported in recent days in Nhulunbuy, a town in Australia's Northwest Territories. Prior to this outbreak, only 2 cases had been reported in the territory.
Cases in sprouts-related Salmonella outbreak rise to 44 – The case count in a Salmonella Newport outbreak linked to raw sprouts from a California company has reached 44 in 11 states.

Caldwell and Sons Inc. of Maywood, Calif., to recall several brands of alfalfa sprouts on May 21. California has had the most cases with 19; no other state has had more than 6.
RECALLS & ALERTS:
-The Procter & Gamble Company is voluntarily recalling its 4-Hour Decongestant Nasal Spray. The product was distributed nationwide in the United States.
-Lancaster Foods is recalling fresh Spinach with the Best Enjoyed By dates of 19 JUN 10 through 27 JUN 10 sold under the brand names Krisp-Pak, Lancaster Fresh, Giant, and America's Choice because they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Signs in False Shepherds/Religion
For among them are those who worm their way into households and capture idle women burdened down with sins, led along by a variety of passions, always learning and never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so these also resist the truth, men who are corrupt in mind, worthless in regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress, for their lack of understanding will be clear to all, as theirs was also. 2 Timothy 3:6-9
