2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirits.

3 Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.

So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. - Luke 14:33

Of course. Trump and his Hydrocarbon Hellspawn Wrecking Crew have ALWAYS lived by 'might equals right'.

Any man who has once proclaimed violence as his method is inevitably forced to take the lie as his principle. -- Aleksandr Sholzhenitsyn
Sholzhenitsyn described this Deceit modus operandi in the USSR.
Quote
Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.
Quote
In our country the lie has become not just a moral category but a pillar of the State.
Sholzhenitsyn described the unavoidable effect of this embrace of evil on the USSR in a book he wrote titled, "The Gulag Archipelago".
Quote
In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousandfold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.
embrace of evil has been part of the USA's MO for at least half a century or more. It will destroy us as effectvely as it destroyed the USSR. The fact that most humans throughout the world embrace evil does not excuse the world leader of said embrace, the USA, from bearing the primary responsibility for fostering it everywhere.

My job as a Christian is to warn people of their destructive embrace of evil, urge them to repent of this and direct them to look to God for answers.

I realize, as this forum evidences, that 99.9999% of what I post falls on deaf ears.

I realize that the working definition of a "Christian" in the USA is now right there with that of most of the "Christians" in Germany under the National Socialist (NAZI) Party.
Quote
A large segment of the Protestant churches in Germany, known as Deutsche Christen (German Christians), became more than bystanders. Their explicit support of Hitler and National Socialist ideology, and its influence on their theology, made them perpetrators.



Thousands of years ago, the Holy Scriptures predicted that, during the Last Days, good would be labelled as evil and evil as good. Hitler, an expert in Orwellian discourse, was right there with Stalin in this heinous duplicity. The same upside down thinking has now become the Orwellian 'reality' in the USA. The moment one says, "I am a Christian", most people, particularly those on the left, think one is a Deutsche Christen, like the "Evangelical Christians" who voted for Trump.

So, most refuse to hear and respond to the truth.
 
The Bible is clear that it does not matter. That is God's problem, not mine. My job is to warn about this evil because I will be held responsible by God if I do not warn those embracing evil that they are rushing to the destruction of their souls.
Quote
But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself. -- Ezekiel 3:19
The Bonhoffer moment in NAZI Germany provides pertinent modern day context to Ezekiel 3:19. I believe it was Ronald Reagan that triggered the Bonhoffer moment here in the USA. Too few realized it. Every POTUS thereafter built on this cruel edifice of Deceit. Trump is the most obvious beacon of evil incorporated, but I find little difference, beyond the identity politics food fight, between his morally depraved policies and those of Reagan and every subsequent POTUS.
Quote
Bonhoeffer was a German theologian and pastor who resisted his government when he recognized, very early and very clearly, the dangers of Hitler’s regime. His first warning about the dangers of a leader who makes an idol of himself came in a radio address delivered in February 1933, just two days after Hitler took office.

Despite an abiding Christ-centered peace ethic, a desire to study nonviolent political resistance with Gandhi, and extensive writing about loving one’s enemies, Bonhoeffer eventually became a member of a conspiracy that was responsible for a coup attempt against Hitler. Twelve years after he became one of the first voices in Germany to offer public opposition to the Nazis, Bonhoeffer was executed by them, as a traitor.

By Bonhoeffer’s own account, he and his co-conspirators were living in a time and place in which “the huge masquerade of evil has thrown all ethical concepts into confusion” and in which evil appears in the “form of light, good deeds, historical necessity, [and] social justice.” They were living in a time that required a radical form of ethical discernment, attuned to concrete reality, historical urgency, and the desperate cries of help from victims of the state.

For those who just read the above, who are more concerned with the devastation our biosphere is experiencing at the hands of Capitalist profit over people and planet than with the spiritual depravity of world leaders like Trump, Putin, Xi, et al, you need to try to grasp what Sholzhenitsyn meant by the phrase, "..., we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.".

The inescapable EFFECT of moral depravity on a nationwide scale is environmental DESTRUCTION. Evil is progressive. It begins by framing all material riches and physical well being as the goal of all rational beings. BUT, it never stops there. It continues to corrupt the mind and the soul to the point of rationalizing any action whatsover as "justified" in the pursuit of physical comfort and prosperity. Obedience to God's commands are gradually branded as "attacks" on our freedom or, as with the pseudo-Christians, demoniically inverted.

Evil is not static; it is dynamic. No one just stops at some point in their slide towards demonically aided and abetted soul dooming worship of the self. All of us in the thrall of self worship grow progressively more addicted to various forms of depravity until our consciense is so seared by sin that we are slaves to a plethora of morally reprehensible behaviors. We then become sworn enemies of God, some denying God's existence, while others often pretend to be His "instrument".

There is NO middle ground. Just because you don't enjoy snuff films and/or engage in serial adultery and just because you correctly and righteously parade against biosphere degradation and the evils of war does NOT mean you are any better than the pseudo-Christians who sin covertly, rationalize "just wars" and hypocritically ignore Capitalist profit over people and planet murder and mayhem.     

Our problems are ALL based on our spiritual condition, from the moment we reach the age of reason until we draw our last breath. Get right with God now. If you do, you are, in these times of the Great American Embrace of Evil, probably guaranteed to have, like Bonhoeffer, a shorter life span, but you will have victory for your soul. If you don't, you are your own worst enemy.

ISRAEL’S SEA OF GALILEE AND DEAD SEA ARE DYING – WHAT IS BEING DONE?

OCTOBER 22, 2018

By Karyn Simpson

Medill Reports

SNIPPET:

Over the past several decades of carving out an oasis from the desert, Israel has pushed back countrywide water scarcity through desalination, conservation, efficient use of the country’s limited freshwater, and wastewater treatment and reuse. Today, approximately 80 percent of Israel’s drinking water comes from desalination plants, meaning that even as Israel enters its sixth consecutive year of drought, the country should continue to have a stable supply of drinking water for its residents.

The main concern surrounding the drought is the health of Israel’s two natural, above-ground bodies of water, the freshwater Sea of Galilee and the saltwater Dead Sea – both sacred to residents, if for entirely different reasons. While the Dead Sea is valued particularly because of its contributions to Israeli tourism, the Sea of Galilee holds special import in religious history and because many residents remember when it was the country’s main source of water.

“The Sea of Galilee, for all the people in Israel, is emotional – 100 percent emotional,” said Arnon Eshel, who works at Sapir, the water pumping station for the Sea of Galilee. “We come here, we see the Sea of Galilee as it looks now, we are in totally depression.”

The ongoing drought has reduced the Sea of Galilee to some of its lowest levels in history, 215.5 meters (about 707 feet) below sea level. To try to assuage the rapidly decreasing levels and prevent any irreparable environmental damage, Israel has almost completely ceased pumping from the Sea of Galilee. But some pumping is necessary to keep the machines working and to fulfill Israel’s peace agreement with neighboring Jordan.

This water holding tank at Sapir, the pumping facility alongside the Sea of Galilee, mirrors the sea’s water level. On the far side of the tank, just below the fence, a red marker shows the sea’s normal level: 208 meters below sea level. The water is currently at 215.5 meters below sea level. (Karyn Simpson/MEDILL)

“For Jordan, by peace agreement, we have to supply to them 50 million cubic meters (about 13.2 billion gallones) per year from the Sea of Galilee,” Eshel said. “Which means that Jordan is the biggest customer of water from the Sea of Galilee.”

Some of the streams which feed into the Sea of Galilee flow from Jordan, meaning that a portion of the water that ends in the Sea of Galilee should belong to the Jordanians – the crux of the peace agreement. While Israel once faced attacks from Jordan, as evidenced in the historic Yom Kippur War, having water be part of the peace agreement has ensured cooperation between the two countries, Eshel said.

“One of the things that Israel understands, that it’s smart to make cooperation with the agriculture in Jordan, by the government, of course, and have a quiet border – 400 kilometers [248.5 miles], totally quiet border,” Eshel said. “If some terrorists want to try to attack Israel, they say not from here. If it come from here, Israel [will] destroy that area.”

Though Israel has considered building a pipeline from the seawater desalination plants to Jordan to fulfill this water requirement without having to pump from the already-low Sea of Galilee, Eshel said that the construction for such a project would be too cost-prohibitive to be feasible.

Today, only 5 percent of Israel’s drinking water comes from the Sea of Galilee, amounting to approximately 25 million cubic meters (abut 6.6 billion gallons). That is just enough to keep the machines working, Eshel said. The biggest culprit to the sea’s decline is evaporation, and without adequate rainfall, the sea has no chance to replenish what it is losing.

“Every year, we [lose] something around 240 million cubic meters (about 63.4 billion gallons) to evaporation,” Eshel said, which appears as about one meter each year in depth. This descent can be seen from the shoreline, which now contains meters of sand where there used to be water.

“When I was a child, every day I need to choose whether I’m going to school or going to swim. Most of the time I’m going to swim. Don’t judge me – there was no air conditioning when I was a child,” Eshel said. He grew up along the Sea of Galilee and held up a picture of the coastline by his home – a long stretch of concrete sidewalk that ended at the water’s edge. In the photo, water lapped against the wall about a foot below walking level, and small boats floated only a meter or two away from shore.

“I never even needed to think if we have the ability to jump or not,” Eshel said.

He held up a second picture – that same stretch of coastline outside his childhood home taken in recent years. The water’s edge had receded 15 to 20 feet, leaving only sand near the concrete sidewalk where Eshel used to jump off, and old boats were beached on the sandy bank where they used to float.

An idea has been proposed to build a pipe sometime in the next three years that would funnel desalinated water into the Sea of Galilee, Eshel said.

Agelbert NOTE: They have to work quickly or the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret lake) is toast, regardless of "a good winter will replenish the lake " wishful thinking. As you read above, the water, as of October of 2018, was at 215.5 meters below sea level. The lake has now reached a point where it CANNOT recover without adding massive amounts of desalinated water. From Wikipedia:

Quote
After 5 years of drought as of 2018, Sea of Galilee is expected to get to the black line.[22] The black elevation line is the lowest depth from which irreversible damage begin and no water can be pumped out anymore.[23] Israel Oceanographic and Limnological Research describe it as "The black line marks -214.87 m, the lowest-ever level reached since 1926 when the water level record began. According to the water authority, the Kinneret water level must not decline below this level."[24]In February 2018, the city of Tiberias requested a desalination plant to treat the water coming from the Sea of Galilee and demanded a new water source for the city.[25]

In September 2018 the Israeli energy and water office announced a project to pour desalinated water from the Mediterranean sea into the sea of Galilee using an underground tunnel.
The 💧 tunnel is expected to be the largest of its kind done in Israel and will transfer half of the Mediterranean desalted water and will push 300 to 500 million cubic liters of water per year.[27]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_of_Galilee

This would be intended to provide water to the settlements around the Sea of Galilee and to help combat the effects of the drought on the lake, but some Israelis are hesitant to support such a project because of the “one good winter” concept, he said.

“People are afraid we will invest a lot of money for that kind of project, and after one good winter, we won’t need to use it,” Eshel said, referring to how, in non-drought years, Israel typically gets enough rain in the winters to make up for the hot, dry summers. “This is people without vision. People with vision understand, even if we have a good winter, so it’s going to be just one. Then we have another 10 years of drought years. You need to be with courage, but it’s not easy.”

Agelbert additional observation: The Sea of Galilee was a HUGE part of the Ministry of Jesus Christ while He walked among us. Moreover, He appeared there AFTER His Resurrection, cooking a fish on the beach.

Jesus Christ appears on the shore of Lake Tiberias by James Tissot

Maybe I am wrong, but I think Jesus Christ has a soft spot for that lake. If the Sea of Galilee dries up, perhaps that is still another sign that we are experiencing the End Times that the Lord Jesus Christ prophesied about over two thousand years ago. Maranatha!

Check this out.

Hosea 4:1-3 ...'Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.'



Exactly right. Human "civilization" is reaping, more every day, what it has sown. As the land now testifies, this is a time of mourning.


But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou
hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Acts 8:20
