After a full week of snow dust, we in Michigan were left with approximately 16 inches of snow or seemingly snow on the ground. Yesterday, January 9<sup>th</sup>, we awakened to very blue sky, a beautiful relief from the white sky/white air/white ground. By noon, however, the planes were back in the air, higher than usual, but with visible trails. By 3:00 p.m. the sky was once again white; not cloudy, just white. <!–more–>
This morning at 10:30 a.m. the sky is white, so white in fact that it looks like it was painted with a roller; again, not clouds, just paint. Where it had been in the double and single digits for a week, which is normal Michigan January, today it is 36 degrees and tomorrow it is forecasted to be 40 degrees, which is not normal in January, the coldest month.
The window at my desk looks out upon large deciduous trees and a fen pond, a shallow, natural wetland boggy pond which is spring fed as parts of my yard are always wet and spongy. These wetlands are natural results of living surrounded by The Great Lakes, and they are an integral part of the natural wonders of Michigan’s ecosystems, wild life, plant life, and the love that we Michiganders have for this state, and why even with the chronic unemployment that plagues us, we stay. We stay because we live in one of the most beautiful and unique places in the world; so beautiful, in fact, that even poverty cannot remove us from this place. The beauty is a large part of the pay; so much so that Michigan is impossible to leave. Nothing compares to the forests, the wetlands, or the plants and magnificent animals in this masterpiece of God’s brilliance.
As I watched those planes spraying their poisons over this state, knowing how I feel about Michigan and how others feel about their home states, I cried. However, my tears were short-lived. I then prayed for God to help me to relentlessly fight this insidious evil. As a Christian, I review my Bible which states:
<p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Jeremiah 12:4
How long will the land lie parched and the grass in every field be withered? Because those who live in it are wicked, the animals and birds have perished. Moreover, the people are saying, “He will not see what happens to us.”</p>
<p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Jeremiah 12:11
It will be made a wasteland, parched and desolate before me; the whole land will be laid waste because there is no one who cares.</p>
<p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Romans 8:22
We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.</p>
<p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Proverbs 30:24-28
Four things are small on the earth, But they are exceedingly wise: The ants are not a strong folk, But they prepare their food in the summer; The badgers are not mighty folk, Yet they make their houses in the rocks; The locusts have no king, Yet all of them go out in ranks; The lizard you may grasp with the hands, Yet it is in kings’ palaces.</p>
<p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Deuteronomy 11:8-12
You shall therefore keep every commandment which I am commanding you today, so that you may be strong and go in and possess the land into which you are about to cross to possess it; so that you may prolong your days on the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give to them and to their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey. For the land, into which you are entering to possess it, is not like the land of Egypt from which you came, where you used to sow your seed and water it with your foot like a vegetable garden. But the land into which you are about to cross to possess it, a land of hills and valleys, drinks water from the rain of heaven, <i>a land for which the Lord your God cares; the eyes of the Lord your God are always on it, from the beginning even to the end of the year</i>.</p>
As a Christian, I believe that what is said in words we see in the world around us. Christians and non-Christians alike not only should but must be deeply involved in the sciences. Because of mankind’s understanding of God and His creation, we are able to take part in scientific discoveries including scientific nightmares. Some Christians distance themselves from science because of the foolish divorce between the sciences and Christianity. Any and all interpretations of the Bible should have convinced us that nature is a creation, and that all of nature is sustenance. There is no contradiction between this fact and biblical interpretation. We cannot forsake the sciences as though they were contradictory to faith, any faith. Faith opens one’s eyes to the works of God, and unbelief blinds men from the message nature proclaims, and all of nature is groaning. You can call it anything you want to call it, but when all sustenance is groaning, a very great tribulation is the result.
I committed myself to God in a promise to relentlessly expose, teach, and fight geoengineering, atmospheric heating, and genetic modification for what it is; pure and insidious evil on every level, because, and no matter what you believe, a tribulation has arrived. We, along with all of nature, are being executed. Hopefully, that information will awaken enough people to action. I will fight for Michigan, California, Africa, India, the North Pole, and all the rest of God’s brilliance. What about you? Do you have eyes to see?
<p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Jeremiah 5:21
Hear this, you foolish and senseless people, who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear:</p>
<p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Ezekiel 12:2
“Son of man, you are living among a rebellious people. They have eyes to see but do not see and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious people.</p>
<p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Mark 4:12
so that, “‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'”</p>
Please, commit yourselves relentlessly and teach all others to see the painted and deadly sky. We are fighting for our lives.
