We’re All Gonna Die!!!!

Hebrews 9:27 – “And as it appointed unto every man that they should once to die, and after that cometh the judgement.”


In actuality I almost never gave this Scripture much thought except for the certain fear about the Judgement. Who wouldn’t have some kind of fear right?


As believers we should know that before the founding of this world, we were created to be made like the “image” of his Son – Hebrews 8:29. From this can we then conclude that when God sent his Son He was a representation, or the like image of us? He came in the Flesh. Christ died on the cross.


We also know through Scriptural history that two men, as yet, have never died a fleshly death- Elijah and Enoch. The Scriptures tell us that Elijah and Enoch will return to earth as the Almighty El’s “witnesses” to confront and do battle with the Antichrist. Revelation 11


The Antichrist will kill the Two Witnesses, Elijah and Enoch, and thus it will become their appointed death as Hebrews promises us.


So here has been my struggle. The Scriptures never lie. They are nothing but the truth. If Yahweh intended that not everyone would have to die a physical death, he would have told us so. His words are to the contrary. Although Enoch and Elijah were taken from the earth and live in Heaven now, they both will be sent back to earth to do battle and to meet their appointment of a physical death. God’s only promise, that I am aware of (please offer help) is that we all must experience, as Christ did, a physical or fleshly death. If that is true, then how can there be a “Rapture” as the churches and religious organizations have beat into everyone’s heads for centuries? Isn’t this a distraction to prevent us from being properly prepared (rightly dividing truth) for the marriage?


Last night I believe I received my answer – seek and ye shall find. I was reading Revelation 16, something I don’t often do these days because it confuses me. Verse 3 reads: “And the second Angel poured out his vial upon the sea, and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living thing died in the sea.”

One of the keys to understanding the Word of God is to understand certain words. “Sea” is almost always in reference to a large gathering of people. If we now view this verse in that context, we see that of the sea of people “every living thing died in the sea.”


The first angel begins the torment of “those which had the mark of the Beast and upon them that worshiped the image,” and that torment continues after the Second Angel.


I forgot to add something very important here. People, myself included, have always questioned that God would have his believers suffer the same torments as the non believers. Perhaps this is truth. Instead of believers remaining on earth and suffering all the same torments as we see from the Seven Angels, wouldn’t it be just and merciful if we were to be killed and then resurrected like Christ rather than suffer?

Here is a follow-up to this topic. Jesus and Mary, along with other members of the family have gathered together as Jesus’ fleshly father, Joseph, is dying. Mary asks Jesus if Joseph must die. Here is his answer: [Mary asks] “O my beloved son, this pious old man Joseph is now dying ; shall he die, he of the good and blessed old age, Joseph the honourable, thy beloved father according to the flesh?” Jesus answered, and said to her, “O my beloved mother, who is there ever among the race of men, who have worn flesh, that will not taste death? Assuredly upon all creatures produced in this world the same necessity of death lieth ; for death holdeth sway over the whole human race. Even thou, O my virgin mother, must look for the same end of life as other mortals. And yet thy death, as also the death of this pious man, is not death, but life eternal and unceasing. Nay more, even I must taste death for the universe, 1 because of the flesh that dieth, which I wore in thee. Now therefore, O my beloved mother, arise and go in unto Joseph, that blessed old man, in order that thou mayest see what will happen as his soul ascendeth from his body.”


This I read in the book The Apocryphal and Legendary Life of Christ.

Maine Big Game Harvests: One Excuse is as Good as Another

The opening line in a Portland Press Herald news article says that Maine’s bear, turkey, and deer harvests were all down from last year, “but on par with wildlife biologist’s expectations.” This was followed by all the “usual suspect” excuses, including Climate Change, however, referred to as “extreme weather.”

This prompts me, one more time, to retell the story of the man who wanted to borrow his neighbor’s ax. The neighbor said, “No, you can’t. It’s Tuesday.” The man asked what Tuesday had to do with borrowing his ax and the neighbor answered, “Nothing. But if I don’t want you to borrow my ax, one excuse is as good as another.”

Excuses! Excuses!. And how about a little bit of honesty in reporting? The article states that Maine’s biologists expected deer harvest numbers to be down because, “…the state issued fewer “Any-Deer Permits.” What’s not reported is what the comparative “Any-Deer Permit” harvest was with last year. The reality is that regardless of the number of “Any-Deer Permits” issued it may not have had much influence on the overall deer harvest. One of the last reports we received from MDIFW was that they were not achieving the desired doe harvest rates from the issuance of “Any-Deer Permits.”

While the article mentions that more “bonus deer permits were handed out,” we haven’t a clue as to how this offset the reduction in “Any-Deer Permits” or the resulting harvest. Hocus-pocus – smoke and mirrors.

I have a stinking suspicion that once all data is collected and an honest assessment of that data is examined, we’ll find out what some of us already know – the deer herd, with the exception of a couple of Wildlife Management Districts in the central part of the state, is poor with little effort being taken to do anything about it.

With the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) announcing their intentions to manage deer for “health” rather than spend time counting (somehow the two are not related?), I would suspect the herd population to continue to shrink, along with interest in deer hunting. After all, who wants to spend money and effort beating the forest for deer, when the odds of success at bagging a deer continue to shrink? And we wonder why license sales continue to drop?

Turkey and bear harvest numbers were abysmal and still MDIFW and the Maine Legislature continue to tread water doing nothing about what has become a nuisance flock of wild turkeys and a potentially dangerous swarm of black bears. With all these bears, we should be thankful it was a bountiful mast crop. Tens of thousands of hungry bears can spell disaster.

We are at a point where serious changes need to be made with both turkey and bear hunting bag limits and/or lengths of season. Dithering continues to rule the day, I suppose operating in fear that “social demands” won’t tolerate more bears and turkeys being killed.

Here’s a suggestion. MDIFW should cease with the “social demands” pandering, along with letting the guides and outfitters tell them how to run their hunting seasons and bag limits, and do what is best for game management. But I realize those days are long gone, therefore we should expect more of the same, and “one excuse is as good as another” when it comes to explaining game harvest numbers.

The Radical Insanity of Climate Change

Below is a press release from the chair of the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. It is a prime example of the perverse insanity that has gripped much of this society, misleading us into nonsensical acts of idiocy in the false belief that the mere existence of man is causing the climate to change to the extent that we’re all gonna die.

By the way, this IS YOUR tax dollars at work. Is this what you really want? Do you have any idea at all what this plan to make all our public lands carbon neutral by 2040 means? Of course you don’t.

Take note of who the chair of the House Committee has selected as guest speakers for this event. It shows the radicalism and insanity.

Chair Grijalva, Committee Democrats to Introduce Landmark Climate Change Legislation Slashing Emissions From Public Lands and Waters

Washington D.C. – Chair Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and several members of the Natural Resources Committee will lead a press conference at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Dec. 10, to unveil their flagship legislation to fight the climate crisis. Members will discuss the legislation’s importance and describe the path it provides to end our public lands’ and waters’ contribution to climate change by 2040.

The landmark bill – authored by Grijalva and cosponsored by a team of Committee members – is the culmination of a year of hearings, roundtables, public forums and other public outreach efforts to learn more about how best to tackle climate change. Since taking the House majority, Natural Resources Committee Democrats have spent much of the past year tackling climate change from every angle.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, climate-harming emissions from public lands account for nearly a quarter of the U.S. total. The new bill seeks to reduce that figure while simultaneously promoting positive climate actions so that the total net contribution of public lands to greenhouse gas emissions is zero by 2040.

In February, the Committee kicked off a historic month of climate change hearings to hear from impacted communities, launched an online platform to hear from the American people about how climate change has impacted them, and held 22 hearings in 2019 focused on climate change to hear from experts, community members, Indian Country, scientists, and advocates.

The feedback gathered through these efforts has consistently underscored the urgent need to limit climate pollution as soon as possible, and to help impacted communities adapt quickly.

The bill is endorsed by multiple stakeholders and public interest advocacy groups, who will provide remarks at the press conference. 

Where: 1334 Longworth House Office Building

When: 12 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, Dec. 10

Speakers 

Chair Raúl M. Grijalva

Vice-Chair Deb Haaland (D-N.M.)

Rep. Mike Levin (D-Calif.)

Chase Huntley, The Wilderness Society

Marissa Knodel, Earthjustice

Aaron Mintzes, Earthworks 

Sharon Buccino, Natural Resources Defense Council

The press conference will be livestreamed on the Natural Resources Committee Facebook Page.

Climate Change Ruined Maine’s Deer Harvest?

Did the real-time deer tagging counter break down? What happened to the excitement that the media and the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s (MDIFW) head deer biologist were spouting about how Maine was on track to harvest 30,000+ deer?

I’m guessing it’s because global warming Climate Change turned things across the state to a state of unfavorable hunting conditions. Parts of Maine saw record low temperatures three different times. There was also snow….Wait, what? Snow? That’s a big plus for deer hunting. Harvest rates always increase when it snows. Doesn’t it?

I don’t know about the rest of the state but the hunting conditions the last week of the season were atrocious…at best. There was snow, but it was always loud, crunchy snow to walk in. It was also so cold, any time spent in a stand or blind were short-lived. Who could take it?

Dang that global warming Climate Change!

I was sent an old newspaper clipping the other day. The headline read: “UN Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked.” The newspaper was dated June 29, 1989. The opening paragraph said, “…entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.”

So that’s what happened.

I wasn’t the only one that got cold hunting. My hunting buddies regularly beat feet to warm camps, cars, and houses cutting short what would have normally been all day excursions in the woods looking for that elusive buck.

On Saturday morning past – last day of regular firearms season – I was standing in the middle of a small hardwood ridge hoping some really stupid deer would make a terrible mistake and disregard the overwhelming noise of crunching snow and ice under foot. I was with two other friends who were at least several hundred yards from me, and I could clearly hear their crunch, crunch, crunch echoing over hill and dale.

Certainly, this global warming Climate Change must have contributed to what looks to be another poor year for deer hunting.

And I thought that it would be poor management, a post normal society that’s all mixed up, and resulting lack of interest that would essentially put an end to hunting. Instead, we’ll all be under water because it will be so warm with a planet void of ice. Maine must have been one of those “nations” that was destroyed (while I slept). So where am I exactly???

Gee! I wished global warming would hurry up and happen. I for one would like a bit warmer weather to hunt in and I could save money by not needing to winter in Florida.

MDIFW, bailed out again due to (wink-wink) global warming Climate Change.
