Warning War (Oct 27,2020) Thousand China Soldiers Joins Russian Troops to Against US Military

Warning War (Oct 27,2020) Thousand China Soldiers Joins Russian Troops to Against US Military The military cooperation between China and Russia has been at a high level in recent years, but the two countries do not need a military alliance, as cooperation based on the comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination is more conducive for the two sides to jointly participate in global governance to safeguard regional and global security, Chinese analysts said, as a proposition of China-Russia military alliance has become a heated topic. This comes after Russian President Vladimir Putin said China and Russia don’t necessarily need a military union, though it could be possible. There is no limit to China-Russian friendship and no restricted areas for expanded cooperation. China is ready to continue to enrich the strategic content of our relations, maintain close strategic coordination, and contribute more positive energy to world peace and stability, Zhao Lijian, spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said during Friday’s media briefing.

DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Who Created God?
QUESTION: This may be a hypocritical statement and question. I believe there is a God and I believe Jesus Christ is my saviour, but I often wonder “who made God”…Do you ever wonder this and would you have a theory to clarify my wondering?
I love your website. Thank you and God bless you!
ANSWER: God gives us no information on His origin except to state that He always was. That means He had no beginning and will have no end. We get a hint of this in Micah 5:2 where the Hebrew says that the Messiah’s existence was before time and is perpetual.
Hebrew scholars believe that the particular way in which the very first letter of the Hebrew version of Genesis 1 is formed indicates that man has not been given the ability to know the details of anything that preceded the Biblical creation account.
Who Created God (continued)?
QUESTION: A friend at work asked me who created God. In Genesis 1:1 it says, “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.” I believe that with my whole mind, heart and soul, but it doesn’t answer the question of who created God, where did He come from, or how did He come into being?
ANSWER: In some religions, people believe their god was created. Others believe their god used to be human like we are and became a god. But no one created the one true God because He is the Creator of everything.
At the burning bush, Moses said, “If the Israelites ask me what your name is, what should I tell them?” God answered “Hayah, Hayah” or in English, “I AM That I AM. The Hebrew word “Hayah” is the verb “to be”. It means the Existing One. IN OTHER WORDS, HE ALWAYS HAS EXISTED AND HE ALWAYS WILL EXIST.
In Deut. 33:27 He’s called the Eternal God, and in Rev. 1:4 He’s the one who is, and who was, and who is to come. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End (Rev. 22:13).
Created In The Image Of God
QUESTION: I just want to say that I love your site and get great strength from reading your articles. The question about God’s image throws people of because an image is what we see and identify with. I agree that Adam was the only man, before the fall, created in God’s image spiritually.
Some would say what about Jesus, but he wasn’t created in God’s image, he was God in flesh. John said it was not clear what we shall be like, but that when He (Jesus) appears we will be like him. My question is: Do you think Adam was, what we shall become, before he fell.
ANSWER: I’ve heard the analogy that Adam’s creation in the image of God is comparable to a mirror image, perfect and accurate in every detail. At the fall, it was like someone had shattered the mirror, and from that time forward humans received only parts of God’s image, like shards of the broken mirror. That’s why some are “naturally” gifted musicians, while others excel at mathematics, or other arts and sciences. Still others are great humanitarians, healers, care givers, or have grace and ability in physical endeavours. They’ve received pieces of the broken image.
When we’re perfected it will be as if the mirror is put back together and we’ll all have all of God’s attributes again. So yes, I believe the raptured Church will regain the full measure of the image of God that Adam enjoyed.
But there’s even more than that in store for us. We’ll be conformed to the likeness of His Son as well. (Romans 8:29 & 1 John 3:2) For example, there’s no indication from scripture that Adam had the inter-dimensional capabilities that Jesus demonstrated after His resurrection.
As Paul wrote, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him. (1 Cor. 2:9)
Who Created Dinosaurs?
QUESTION: I was reading on (another website) today, for the first time and I wondered about the truth that the dinosaurs being created on the 6th day. Is this true? Were they created on the same day as man? I have been reading your website for several weeks now and I trust your knowledge. It agrees with my spirit and with that being said I thought I would ask you about the dinosaur theory. This website says that ANSWER: The Bible says that both animals and man were created on the 6th day.(Genesis 1:24-26) It doesn’t mention dinosaurs specifically, but then the word didn’t exist when the Bible was written, and the account of the creation doesn’t mention any animals by name.
It’s likely that God did create dinosaurs although not in a form recognizable to us. According to the fossil record, some had bodies too big for their skeletons, while others had brains too small to function properly. There were giant birds that couldn’t fly and animals so huge they had to remain in water to support their bulk. This doesn’t sound like God’s work to me. Remember, at the end of Day 6 He pronounced everything good.
The apocryphal Book of Enoch hints that Satan was tinkering with animal genetics after the Creation just like he did with mankind. His tinkering with the human gene pool produced the Nephilim, a half breed mix of angel and man that took over the world and was a major cause for Noah’s flood.
To me many of the dinosaurs look more like a science experiment gone bad than the handiwork of the Creator of the Universe. I think Satan was messing with them, as another way to corrupt God’s perfect Creation.
Dinosaurs And The Great Pyramid
QUESTION: I’m just curious as to a couple of your essays. One concerning dinosaurs and the other about the great pyramid. In the one about dinosaurs you state that they came about as a result of genetic manipulation by Satan and his fallen angels. In the other article you state that the great pyramid was created by Ham I think. One of Noah’s sons.
What I’d like to know, is this speculation on your part based on the biblical stories? Or do you have any particular references in the bible, or else where, that gives these ideas? I’me not trying to discount your ideas… I just find them interesting, as you are the first person I’ve heard them from. I would find it interesting to learn your viewpoints.
By the way keep up the good work on the site. Your teaching about bible prophecy and the end times is clear and concise and well supported by scripture quotes. Which is nice, when trying to verify against the bible. Like the Bereans we must always be diligent to verify against the bible.
ANSWER: The notion of dinosaurs coming about as the result of Satan’s genetic manipulation comes from extra-biblical sources. But when you think about it, would God create monsters with brains too small to control their bodies? Or skeletons too weak to support their mass? How about giant birds that require an atmosphere three times as dense as ours to fly?
These characteristics of some dinosaurs were determined by scientists examining the fossil record. When God finished creating the animals He proclaimed everything good. Would He have felt good about creating these freaks? And if Noah was told to bring 2 of every kind of animal into the ark, why weren’t there dinosaurs after the flood? So while there’s no clear Biblical evidence of my position, I arrived at it by applying logic to my knowledge of God’s creative power and skill.
As far as the Great Pyramid is concerned, most of my information is a summary of the volumes of extra-biblical study done by credible people from varied backgrounds, Biblical and scientific, down through the years. I stated that some believe Shem could have been it’s principal architect and listed other candidates as well. But no one knows who actually did build it. Currently, the Nephilim, a race of angel/man hybrids mentioned in Genesis 6 who appear to have controlled much of Planet Earth before the flood are being proposed as the most likely candidates.
There is much about man’s earliest history that remains unknown, and piques the curiosity of folks like you and me. The challenge is to not contradict things the Bible does say while giving added insight into these things. My goal in presenting my findings is to always do so in a manner that both supports and encourages further study into our Lord’s nature and character.
Were Dinosaurs ‘Named’ By Adam?
QUESTION: Were dinosaurs ‘named’ by Adam? Isn’t that a good question? Think about it. Why is it all animals have a name from Adam and they all carried over after the flood…except for dinosaurs? I understand the word ‘dinosaur’ became a word in 1841. I also understand that the words dragon and Behemoth that are found in the bible are most likely talking about a dinosaur. So, why do dinosaurs have names from recent discoveries in the fossil record but not the name that Adam chose? And, I believe with all my heart dinosaurs were on the Ark of Noah. I look forward to your answer. Many blesses to you all there at Grace Thru Faith.
ANSWER: Dragon, behemoth, and leviathan are all words that appear in the Old testament and are thought by some to refer to dinosaurs. But the specific meanings of these words is unclear so no one really knows for sure. The fire breathing dragon appears in enough mythologies to have probably existed at some time. The word dinosaur was coined in 1841 and means terrifying lizard.
Some say dinosaurs disappeared millions of years ago when a giant meteor strike raised a cloud of dust and smoke that blotted out the sun’s light and killed off all the vegetation they ate, essentially starving them out.
Others believe the dinosaurs were abominations that perished in Noah’s flood. All we know for sure is that there don’t deem to be any around today, and the only real evidence we have of their existence is in the fossil record.
I don’t think we can prove that animals of today are still known by the names Adam gave them. And as for dinosaurs we don’t know if Adam named them or not, only that if he did he didn’t use the word dinosaur. Neither do we know for sure what specific animals Noah took on the ark.
I believe that dinosaurs as we know them were the result of genetic tinkering by Satan and the Nephilim and were destroyed in the flood. Although God must have originally created them, since only He could do so, I don’t think that his version looked or acted anything like the fossil record indicates. If I’m right then it’s logical that if there were two left who hadn’t been tampered with and were still in their original form, then Noah took them with him. But as far as I’m concerned all our speculation about the dinosaurs, whether from scientists or creationists, is just that – speculation.

”Who controls money can control the world.” The pandemic was needed as a pretext to halt and collapse the world economy and the underlying social fabric
There is no coincidence. There were a number of preparatory events, all pointing into the direction of aworldwide monumental historic disaster. It started at least 10 years ago– probably considerably earlier – with the infamous 2010 Rockefeller Report, which painted the first phase of a monstrous Plan, called the “Lock Step” scenario. Among the last preparatory moves for the “pandemic” was Event 201, held in NYC on 18 October 2019.
The event was sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and the World Economic Forum (WEF), the club of the rich and powerful that meets every January in Davos, Switzerland. Participating were a number of pharmaceuticals (vaccine interest groups), as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s of the US and – of China.
One of the objectives of Event 201 was a computer simulation of a corona virus pandemic. The simulated virus was called SARS-2-nCoV, or later 2019-nCoV. The simulation results were disastrous, killing 65 million people in 18 months and plunging the stock market by more than 30% — causing untold unemployment and bankruptcies. Precisely the scenario of which we are now living the beginning.
THE LOCK STEP SCENARIO foresees a number of ghastly and disturbing events or components of The Plan to be implemented by the so called Agenda ID2020, a Bill Gates creation, fully integrated into the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) – target date for completion – 2030 (also called Agenda 2030, the hidden agenda unknown to most of the UN members), the same target date for completion of the Agenda ID02020.
Here, just the key elements as a precursor to what the world is living now, and what is to come, if we don’t stop it – to demonstrate how this entirely criminal sham has been planned. Parts of the scenario are:
A massive vaccination program, probably through compulsory vaccination – Bill Gates’ dream and brainchild is vaccinating 7 billion people.
Massive population reduction, a eugenics plan – in part through vaccination and other means (Ref. Bill Gates, “if we are doing a real good job vaccinating, we may reduce the world population by 10% to 15%”.See “Innovating to Zero!”, speech to the TED2010 annual conference, Long Beach, California, February 18, 2010).
Bill Gates has been advocating for years the need for a massive population reduction – and indeed the more than 20 years of the BMGF’s extensive vaccination programs in Africa, India and other places around the world have seen a record of involuntary sterilization of women between 14 and 49 years. See In 2014 and 2015 Kenya carried out a massive tetanus vaccination program, sponsored by WHO and UNICEF.
An electronic ID for every person on the planet – in the form of a nano chip, possibly injected along with the mandatory vaccination. This nano-chip could be remotely uploaded with all personal data.

ISRAEL CONTINUES WAR PREPARATIONS:
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Judah Ari Gross
The Israel Defense Forces on Sunday morning launched a large-scale exercise simulating war against the Hezbollah terror group, aimed at improving the military’s offensive capability, it said.
The multi-day drill — dubbed “Deadly Arrow” — will predominantly focus on how various headquarters and command centers work together and communicate in wartime, the military said. It was also set to include physical maneuvers by ground forces, naval vessels and aircraft.
“The goal of the exercise is improving the IDF’s attack ability and testing all levels [of the military] in an integrated way,” the IDF said in a statement.
The military said the exercise would simulate a “multi-front scenario focused on the northern arena.”
The IDF believes that any future war against the Lebanon-based Hezbollah terror group would not only be waged in southern Lebanon, but would also include attacks from Syria and potentially the Gaza Strip as well.
“Headquarters, conscripted troops and reservist forces are taking part in the exercise, alongside the air force, navy and ground forces, as well as the intelligence, technology and logistics, teleprocessing and cyber defense directorates,” the IDF said.
The military warned Israelis that they were likely to notice a larger than normal presence of aircraft overhead throughout the country in general and that people in the cities of Haifa and Ashdod were likely to see large numbers of troops, vehicles and ships around the ports.
The IDF generally considers the Hezbollah terror group to be its most significant military foe. The Iran-backed Shiite militia, with whom Israel fought a war in 2006, is believed to maintain an arsenal of some 130,000 rockets and missiles — a larger collection of projectiles than many nations possess — and the organization has amassed considerable battle experience from fighting in Syria throughout the country’s civil war.

For almost a year, Palestinian Islamic Jihad was largely absent from Iran’s media and political push. Now Iran is back, talking about Islamic Jihad in the media, a day after Ankara’s press also highlighted the group. The articles do not appear to be a coincidence, because the group claimed it was “mobilizing” in Gaza over the weekend.
After conflict with Israel in 2019, PIJ suffered setbacks and was also concerned about threats to its leadership. Baha Abu Al-Ata had been killed in November by an Israeli airstrike and Syrian reports said that the home of its deputy leader Akram al-Ajouri had also been targeted. Iran follows the group closely; PIJ is believed to be an Iranian proxy, armed, advised and provided cash and technical assistance over the years by Tehran. It is Iran’s footprint in Gaza, and perhaps its eyes and ears as well.
The terrorist group also provides Iran leverage and options, including plausible deniability should Iran want to test Israel. That appears clear from how the group has offices in Gaza and Damascus, two key fronts for Tehran against Jerusalem.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is frequently in contact with Islamic Jihad. Last year he called PIJ leader Ziyad al-Nakhalah to support its attacks on Israel. He spoke to the group or put out statements linked to it in February and July of this year. Today Iran is angry about the Israel-Sudan agreement and highlights Hamas opposition to the agreement.
Iran’s Fars News says that the Islamic Jihad “military branch” Saraya al-Quds had announced an alert and mobilization over the weekend. Ostensibly the reason for this was the deterioration in the health of Maher al-Akhras who is on hunger strike. Akhras, a 49-year-old from the West Bank, has been on hunger strike for three months.
The “mobilization” of Islamic Jihad’s fighters appears to be the second time in 48 hours the group has gotten front page coverage in Turkey and Iran, showing that it is pushing for relevance against a year in which it was relatively quiet after the November clashes with Israel. It is not clear if this is because Iran and Turkey want to highlight and use the group, or if it is at the group’s own initiative.
It is not as simple as just a cycle of escalation related to the hunger strike. The statement by PIJ in Turkey was about France, and another statement recently condemned the Israel-Sudan discussions. This illustrates that the group is seeking to push messages regionally and find an excuse locally to confront Israel.

The fact that law enforcement officials across the nation are expecting widespread violence following the election should chill every American to the core. As I keep repeating over and over, violence is not going to solve anything, but much of the population is not listening to voices such as mine anymore.
As you will see below, authorities have decided to “plan for the worst” because everyone can see what is potentially coming. But if we can’t hold a presidential election without violence at this point, how much longer can our system possibly last? No matter who ends up winning, I think that the election of 2020 will tell us a lot about how far America has already fallen.
Thankfully, officials in most major cities do not have their heads stuck in the sand and have been preparing for massive riots following the election. In New York, the NYPD is literally “training every day” to deal with the riots and protests that they are anticipating…
The NYPD is training every day and deploying hundreds of extra cops as it braces for Election Day and its aftermath, amid fears riots and protests could break out after the results are announced.
In Los Angeles, officers are being told that “they may need to reschedule” their vacations so that they will be available for whatever may happen…
LAPD sent an internal memo to its officers last week that said they may need to reschedule any vacations around election day as the agency prepares for possible protests or other unrest, according to the Los Angeles Times.
In so many instances, law enforcement agencies are pointing to the riots that erupted in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd as the type of scenario that they want to be prepared for this time around.
Even down in Texas, authorities in multiple cities are admitting that “they are planning for potential unrest around the Nov. 3 election”…
Agencies in at least four major cities — Austin, El Paso, San Antonio and Fort Worth — confirmed they are planning for potential unrest around the Nov. 3 election. Officials in other Texas cities declined to say whether they’re doing the same.
The intent of such preparations, said Tara Long, an Austin Police Department spokesperson, “is to ensure the safety of the community while protecting the rights of people to peacefully exercise their First Amendment rights.”
Of course in some cities the violent protests never seem to end.

During the debate, Biden held up his black mask, looked straight into the camera and said “We’re about to go into a dark winter.”
Lest anyone dismiss Biden’s comment as the nonsensical ramblings of a washed-up politician, he repeated it.
We are in for “a dark winter,” he reinterated.
A slip of the tongue? Or a foreboding prediction?
The federal government carried out Operation Dark Winter in June 2001, a simulation exercise focused on how to respond to a covert biological attack using a super-strain of smallpox from an unknown source. It involved draconian lockdowns, rioting in the streets, and military intervention to quell the chaos. You can read about it in an article that appeared earlier this year in the elitist magazine Foreign Policy titled America’s Pandemic War Games Don’t End Well. The magazine admits the current coronavirus pandemic “bears an eerie resemblance to the simulation.”
The Foreign Policy article on Operation Dark Winter ends by planting an ominous seed in readers’ minds.
“The issue is, after all, deeply political—as Dark Winter showed. And it is not just lives that are at stake. So, too, is the ability of the American form of government to respond deftly to a nationwide medical crisis. ‘In the earliest days of this crisis, it was clear that the response was insufficiently proactive at the federal level,’ argued Andrew Lakoff, professor of sociology at USC. ‘Over the last century, we have developed a system for governing crisis situations that has saved us from falling into dictatorship in times of emergency. We have shown that a democracy can respond as well as a dictatorship to emergencies. But I wonder if our system will hold up in the face of the current crisis. I certainly hope so.’”

If you’re looking for a short introduction to socialism that rewards rereading, Thomas DiLorenzo’s The Problem With Socialism is it.
Perhaps your son or daughter has returned from college talking about collective control of the means of production and sporting Bernie Sanders t-shirts. Perhaps you’re a political novice looking for informed guidance.
Perhaps you’re frustrated with America’s economic decline and deplorable unemployment rates. Perhaps you listened with bewilderment as some pundit this election season distinguished democratic socialism from pure socialism in an attempt to justify the former.
Whoever you are, and whatever your occasion for curiosity, you’re likely to find insight and answers from DiLorenzo.
A professor of economics at Loyola University Maryland, DiLorenzo opens his book with troubling statistics: 43% of millennials, or at least those between ages 18 and 29, view socialism more favorably than capitalism, and 69% of voters under 30 would vote for a socialist presidential candidate. Socialism—depending on how it’s defined in relation to communism—may have killed over 100 million people and impoverished countless others over the course of the 20th Century.
So why have the youth (full disclaimer: by certain measures, at 33, I’m considered a millennial myself) welcomed this ideology that’s responsible for mass killings, organized theft, war crimes, forced labor, concentration camps, executions, show trials, ethnic cleansing, disease, totalitarianism, censorship, starvation, hyperinflation, poverty, and terror?
Why have death, destruction, and abject destitution become so hip and cool? Because of effective propaganda and utopian promises of “free” everything.
The problem is, as anyone who’s ever studied economics knows, there’s no such thing as free stuff. Somebody pays at some point.
“What socialists like Senator Sanders should say if they want to be truthful and straightforward,” DiLorenzo thus avers, “is not that government can offer citizens anything for free, but that they want healthcare (and much else) to become a government-run monopoly financed entirely with taxes. Taxes hide, but do not eliminate, the cost of individual government programs.”
And these programs are far more expensive to society than they would be on the free market.
The predicable rejoinder to such a claim — repeated ad nauseam by television personalities—is that socialism works, nay thrives, in, say, Sweden. DiLorenzo corrects the record: “Socialism nearly wrecked Sweden, and free market reforms are finally bringing its economy back from the brink of disaster.”
Strong language, but DiLorenzo maps the history and supplies the data to back it up. “The real source of Sweden’s relatively high standard of living,” he explains, has “everything to do with Sweden avoiding both world wars and jumping into the industrial revolution when its economy was one of the freest, least regulated, and least taxed in Europe.”
Coloring his analysis with references to the Austrian economists Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, and Murray Rothbard, DiLorenzo undertakes a variety of other issues implicated by socialism: egalitarianism, fascism, income taxation, wage and price controls, monopolies, public schooling, and more.
Had I been his publisher, I would have insisted that he also include disturbing, graphic, and gruesome images of real, dead human bodies stacked on real, dead human bodies, of ransacked churches, and of confiscated property—alarmingly tangible consequences and horrifying illustrations of pure, realized socialism.
DiLorenzo has the courage to call socialism what it is: “the biggest generator of poverty the world has ever known.” For young students especially, his concise primer could make the difference between feeling the Bern, and getting burned.
SOCIALISM’S END GAME ARRIVES IN VENEZUELA: WARLORDS TAKE OVER
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Ben Kew
The sale of gasoline in socialist-controlled Venezuela is increasingly being controlled by socialist warlords in a similar manner to drug trafficking, Argentinian outlet Info Bae detailed in a report Friday.
Amid chronic gasoline shortages across the oil-rich nation, socialist militias and military officials have taken advantage of the unmet demand by gaining preferential access to supplies and selling them at markups of up to 1000 percent.
One of the groups also taking advantage of the supply and demand is the People’s Liberation Army (ELN), a communist terror group based in Colombia and supported by Nicolás Maduro’s socialist regime. According to one community leader from western Táchira state who spoke with Info Bae, the illegal sale of gasoline has become one of the group’s most important revenue streams.
“It is one of the important resources they obtain because even if there is a surcharge, no one is going to point them out for committing a crime that is almost institutionalized in a permissive manner,” said the leader. “I learned that the military, the guerrillas, the collectives, they all run gas stations and charge exaggerated prices for fuel.”
Despite having the largest oil reserves in the world, Venezuela is currently facing energy shortages comparable to the likes seen in Cuba and North Korea. The shortages are mainly a result of the collapse in oil production by the state-run oil company Petroleum of Venezuela, which has fallen to chronic inefficiencies and an exodus of its most experienced personnel since its nationalization by Hugo Chávez in the 2000s.
Shortages of gasoline are now so severe that some parts of the country have had to suspend its sale completely, a situation that if prolonged could lead to the collapse of civilization altogether. Many Venezuelans now also live with intermittent access to electricity and water supply as public services continue to crumble amid the country’s ever-worsening economic and humanitarian crisis.

George Orwell wrote his prophetic masterpiece 1984 barely three years after Europe was liberated from the oppressive grip of Nazi socialism. Victory notwithstanding, Orwell remained preoccupied with the ease and speed with which a nation’s freedom could be lost. Freedom’s strength was also liberty’s fragility — a free people could choose to relinquish freedom. This poignant lesson was Orwell’s wake-up call that the great draconian nightmare hadn’t ended — it was merely postponed.
This existential threat must have terrified Orwell so deeply that he envisioned the resurgence of a tyrannical society a mere 36 years after the blitzkrieg of World War II. Even with today’s 2020 hindsight, one wonders how he could have so accurately predicted the impending demise of civilization. His only miscalculation was the appointed year. Nineteen eighty-four came and went without fanfare despite the chilling effects of a “cold war,” a term Orwell coined to describe his “peace that is no peace.” His timing may well have proven accurate were it not for one unknown unknown in Orwell’s visionary acumen: Ronald Reagan.
Now, 36 years after 1984‘s forecast, 2020 offers itself as an eerie time portal — a way back to the future of Orwell’s prophetic world of freedom lost.
Much like today, Orwell’s world of 1984 was divided into three warring super-states: Oceania, which included Great Britain and the Americas; Eurasia, controlled by Russia; and Eastasia, dominated by China. Oceania, a totalitarian regime founded from an anti-capitalist revolution, was ruled by the Party under Big Brother’s leadership and enforced by the Thought Police (Thinkpol), which served as judge and jury for offenses against Party doctrine. Nonconformists were broken until they finally surrendered under their own free will. As Orwell wrote: “We do not destroy the heretic … we capture his inner mind, we reshape him.” Today, this psychological oppression and censorship is carried out by “cancel culture” agitators and platforms like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, which suppress all opposing viewpoints — mostly recently a New York Post story on the Bidens.
A first step in the loss of freedom is the voluntary loss of privacy. In 1984, the populace of Oceania is constantly monitored by the Party via omnipresent telescreens. Today’s smartphones are the counterparts of these invasive telescreens, tracking every user’s location, consumer preferences, and personal habits.
Orwell’s protagonist, Winston Smith, represents humanity’s last hope of regaining this lost freedom. Smith works as a clerk in the Ministry of Truth, where he forges historical documents to reconcile the Party’s ever changing platform — obliterating all contradictory government policies and blundered predictions in a contraption called a memory hole. Today, technology allows mainstream media to seamlessly rewrite stories or instantaneously alter TV chyrons, creating an endless stream of fake news.
Today, governments often rely on fear to control the population. In his techno-thriller State of Fear, Michael Crichton elaborates on the overwhelming role fear can play in government control. “Never let a crisis go to waste” is a common paraphrase of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Most crises are difficult to elevate to doomsday pitch. Global warming, for instance, lacks the immediacy and personal impact to promote widespread fear-mongering. Yet, on occasion, a crisis may arise that strikes fear even in the fearless. COVID-19 is a case in point. Government lockdowns that would normally be impossible are now mostly accepted.
Another powerful tool for achieving group control is hatred. Like fear, hatred’s consuming obsession can overwhelm large groups of people into addictive frenzy. In 1984, the citizens of Oceania are subjected to daily “Two Minute Hate” sessions and a weeklong Hate Holiday. This practice has been carried to extremes in recent years with the nearly 24-7 “Trump” hate forums that are broadcast by even once respected news outlets.
Newspeak is Oceania’s official language, a linguistic tool that fosters the Party’s ideologies of English Socialism. Its aim is to limit thought. “Orthodoxy,” Orwell wrote, “means not thinking — not needing to think.” Today we call this groupthink, something that ironically abounds on college campuses. Individualism in Oceania is equated with eccentricity and given the derogatory Newspeak term own-life.

This is the kind of stuff that China does: Fury as traffic flow cameras are secretly switched to monitor millions of pedestrians in UK government-backed secret Corona project
Big Brother is watching you!
Millions of people are being monitored for social distancing as part of a government-backed project secretly rolled out across Britain, the Mail can reveal.
In what campaigners call a sign the country is heading to a ‘truly dark place’, at least 363 cameras originally installed to monitor traffic flow have been switched – without public consultation – to snoop on pedestrians.
An investigation revealed that Vivacity Labs, the company behind the Artificial Intelligence camera technology, was awarded almost £50,000 by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy [BEIS] in June to ‘improve the collection of social distancing data.’
The brief from public body Innovate UK – funded by BEIS – said pedestrians in 16 cities would be monitored for how close they are to one another in public places to ‘help the Government plan the removal of lockdown measures’.
Despite the widespread and potentially life-changing use of the data, pedestrians have remained unaware their movements are being tracked because neither the Government nor many of the councils who approved the installation of cameras consulted the public on their change of use.
In an interview last month, Mark Nicholson, one of Vivacity’s founders, said the technology could soon be expanded to carry out temperature checks ‘depending on how far down the ‘Big Brother’ route we want to go’.+3
Former Conservative Party leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith said last night: ‘This is the kind of stuff that China does.
‘We are losing our inalienable freedoms. Covid is destroying the very nature of what it is to be in a democracy under the rule of law and protected freedoms. The authorities are now using devices [to monitor people] which were not intended for that purpose. The Government should have informed the public but they shouldn’t be doing this in the first place.‘
‘Sensors we’re told are for monitoring traffic are later used to monitor social distancing, and surely no one is naive enough to think that it’ll end there. You have to draw a line somewhere.
CANADIAN PHYSICIAN WRITES OPEN LETTER TO CANADIAN HEALTH OFFICER: BLASTS LOCKDOWNS, MASKS, DISTANCING
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Anthony Murdoch
A Canadian physician practicing family medicine for over 40 years has written to his province’s top doctor to blast the latter’s COVID-19 lockdown policy.
“How is it possible that a doctor with your previous training and experience did not anticipate the collateral damage of your public health policies — the economic disruption, the psychological and physical health consequences, and the deaths from despair?” wrote Dr. Stephen Malthouse in a letter addressed to Dr. Bonnie Henry, British Columbia (B.C.)’s provincial health officer.
“The mainstream media has created a religion out of public health, one based on superstition, not science, with the power to rule over an obedient public. The news channels have raised you to almost saint-like status[.] … Yet, your public directives do not make sense, contradict the research, and are causing people a great deal of harm. As a fellow doctor, I appeal to you to re-examine your policies and change direction before Public Health causes irreparable damage to our province’s health and economic well-being.”
In his letter, Malthouse states that there “appears to be no scientific or medical evidence for” the continuance of lockdowns, face masks, social distancing, the “arbitrary” closing of schools and businesses, and the “the closing down of or restrictions on religious places of worship.”
“According to the CDC Pandemic Severity Index, none of these measures have been warranted. The Great Barrington Declaration, signed by more than 30,000 health scientists and medical doctors from around the world, adds support for this statement,” wrote Malthouse. The Great Barrington Declaration blasts the harm caused by lockdowns.
Malthouse wrote that like most doctors in Canada, he was prepared for a “COVID-19 tsunami,” which he noted never materialized.
“The early intent of mitigation measures to ‘flatten the curve, when we knew very little about SARS-CoV-2, its mode of transmission, and the severity of COVID-19, was reasonable. I believe that most physicians in Canada, myself included, whether active or retired, prepared themselves to take part on the front lines for the expected COVID-19 tsunami,” wrote Malthouse.
“Very soon it was apparent that the expected overwhelming of the hospital system was not going to occur, and now BC physicians have questions about the appropriateness of your public health policies.”
Malthouse has been in the “family medical practice” for over 40 years and has been a member of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. since 1978. Currently, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia lists Malthouse as an actively practicing family physician in Denman Island.
In his letter to Henry, Malthouse wrote that the “epidemiological evidence clearly shows” that the COVID-19 “pandemic” is indeed over.
“No second wave will follow. The evidence has been available for at least 4–5 months and is irrefutable. Yet, in spite of this substantial body of research, your office is perpetuating the narrative that a pandemic still exists and a second wave is expected,” wrote Malthouse, referencing a report noting a former Chief Science Officer for Pfizer who said, ‘there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen.’”
“This false story is being used to justify public health policies that appear to have no health benefits, have already caused considerable harm, and threaten to create more harm in the future.”
As of today, B.C. lists 254 deaths attributed to COVID-19. On Monday, despite 69 people listed as in hospital and 18 in the ICU due to COVID-19, Henry sounded the alarm that her province is in its “second wave.”
“One can say that we are in our second wave here of our COVID-19 storm in B.C. But we have control over what that wave looks like,” said Henry to reporters Monday.
Currently, B.C. is in Phase 3 of its re-opening regime, with restrictions still in place for many businesses such as restaurants and bars, which must close by 11:00 P.M.
Churches and other places of worship are still limited to only 50 attendees, far below the limit in the neighboring province of Alberta, which does not put a limit on how many can attend church.
In his letter to Henry, Malthouse mentioned the nation of Sweden, which did not have extreme lockdown measures, as a place that has “largely escaped” the mess caused by lockdowns.
In his letter, Malthouse also mentioned the controversy around the accuracy of PCR tests as the method to detect COVID-19, bringing up a New York Times report that concluded that PCR testing can show up to 90% false positives.
“The PCR test was never designed, intended or validated to be used as a diagnostic tool,” wrote Malthouse.
Regarding “case counts” of those who show a positive COVID-19 test result, Malthouse wrote that Henry should not use this as a means to cause “panic” in the public.
“The public health definition of a ‘case’ is very broad. As all experienced doctors know, a ‘case’ is a patient with significant symptoms who is often hospitalized. A ‘case’ is not a person who simply has a questionably positive PCR test and presents with no symptoms or an unrelated diagnosis,” wrote Malthouse.
“Nevertheless, your public announcements repeatedly emphasize that the “case” counts are rising and we are in big trouble[.] … It is your duty as the provincial health officer to provide facts, not propaganda, and make every effort to stop the public panic. The only reason for emphasizing ‘cases’ is to induce more fear and thereby compliance in the name of promised safety.”
ARE WE GOING TO WITNESS THE WORST NATIONAL EMOTIONAL MELTDOWN IN U.S. HISTORY ONCE THIS ELECTION IS OVER?
Right now we are experiencing the calm before the storm. Many Biden supporters believe that a Trump victory would literally be the worst thing that could possibly happen to our country, but at the moment most of them are quite confident that Biden will win. Likewise, many Trump supporters are absolutely convinced that we will plunge into a horrifying socialist abyss if Biden wins, but for now most of them are convinced that the polls are wrong and that Trump will pull out another victory in November. So with just a little over a week until Election Day, most Americans that really care about politics are pacified because they believe that a positive outcome is right around the corner. (READ MORE…)

The moon jellyfish have been appearing by the thousands on the Padre Island National Seashore.
From a distance, they seem only to be bumps in the sand. Up close, however, the translucent jellyfish with their four pink horseshoe-shaped tissues are easy to spot.
Wildlife experts have a couple of ideas about what’s behind the strange phenomenon.
Prevailing winds and the water current may be pushing them ashore. That’s the potentially simple explanation.
Or, perhaps more complexly, a “broadcast spawning” event months ago could have formed the giant school of jellyfish, officials say.
Moon jellyfish reproduce by releasing sperm and eggs into the water, which hatch into a larva that attaches itself to a surface and grows into a polyp, according to Oceana. The polyp asexually produces clones that swim away and eventually turn into jellyfish.
“Either way, these jellyfish are mostly harmless but can cause minor skin irritation if handled,” Padre Island National Seashore said in a Facebook post Friday.
I the last few weeks, thousand seals are dying in Namibia, the largest whale mass beaching occurred in Tasmania and hundreds of thousands sea creatures died off Kamchatka. The ocean ecosystem is slowly but certainly collapsing… And I am pretty sure some know why!
A mass die-off baby seal horror is developing in Namibia: Nearly 10,000, “overall number could be higher.” OCN said starvation was the most probable cause but other reasons could be toxins or disease and nothing could be ruled out
Gary Walton – The Big Wobble
The beach at Pelican Point in Namibia has now risen to nearly 10,000 dead baby seals, Ocean Conservation Namibia (OCN) said in an Instagram post on Friday. Drone footage taken by the OCN shows the beach full of seal pup bodies. “We are sitting at the cusp of a catastrophe. There are literally thousands of seal pups being born prematurely and dying almost immediately,” OCN said.
“This is a natural phenomenon – meaning that when the pregnant female feels she does not have enough reserves, she can abort her fetus. This happens every year to a few individuals, but never on this scale!” Seals give birth in the middle of November, but sometimes you can see prematurely born seal pups in October.
Premature seal pups cannot survive. They are too young and not fully developed. A few premature deaths is a natural event, but thousands of premature dead seal pups are extremely rare. The beaches are full of little black lumps, OCN said.
According to OCN, there are different reasons for these deaths. The most probable one is starvation; fish might have moved too far away from Pelican Point. “Our seals look a bit thin, it could likely be caused by a lack of food,” they said. “Other seal colonies look much better, the seals are fatter and they don’t record the same amount of premature pups.” Other reasons could be toxins or diseases.
The number of dead seals found washed ashore on the coast of Namibia has risen to more than 7,000, non-profit group Ocean Conservation Namibia (OCN) said on Friday. OCN said last week thousands of dead seal pups had washed ashore at Pelican Point peninsula, a tourist destination known for its colony of seals and school of dolphins.
Naude Dreyer, a marine biologist at OCN, said investigations in the past week had revealed a spike in the number of dead female adults. “What we have been observing is less freshly dead seal pups and a lot of dead female adults,” he said. Investigations had mainly centred on the Pelican Point Beach, so the overall number of dead seals could be higher.
The Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources said last week it would send samples to South Africa to determine the cause of death. Dreyer said this had not yet been done because of the need to observe strict guidelines on shipping dangerous animal products. OCN said last week starvation was the most probable cause as fish, the seals’ main source of food, have moved from Pelican Point, but other reasons could be toxins or disease and nothing could be ruled out without a full study.

In conjunction with the record-challenging cold that is set to surge southward across the central and western United States, another potentially record-setting snowstorm is set to target millions of Americans in the coming days.
This time, the dose of wintry precipitation will target areas much farther south, including some that typically don’t pick up snow until much later in the season.
With this storm coming on the heels of recent winterlike weather that shattered a 115-year-old snowfall record in the Twin Cities, residents across the Plains and Upper Midwest may check their calendars twice to make sure it’s still October.
The next storm is forecast to be one of the most disruptive so far this season for the western and central United States over the coming days. It is projected to bring record-challenging cold and snow, howling winds and even the threat of severe thunderstorms to areas farther east.
THINGS TO COME: VIRGINIA HEALTH OFFICIALS ‘INTERPRET BIBLE’ FOR VACCINE-OBJECTING EMPLOYEE – DENY RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – WND Staff
A dispute has erupted over a mandatory vaccine program for employees of the University of Virginia Health System because officials are requiring a worker to follow their interpretation of the Bible’s requirements.
The worker would rather follow his own beliefs, not theirs.
The employee, whose name was not released, has submitted four requests for a religious accommodation to his bosses’ order to be vaccinated for the flu.
He says his Christian beliefs don’t allow it, citing biblical instructions not to be defiled with “harmful” substances.
The employee, whose name was not released, has submitted four requests for a religious accommodation to his bosses’ order to be vaccinated for the flu.
He says his Christian beliefs don’t allow it, citing biblical instructions not to be defiled with “harmful” substances.
He “cannot accept any vaccination that is derived from aborted fetal tissue, nor contribute to the bottom line of a manufacturer who sells vaccines that are derived from aborted fetal cells.”
It’s a matter of faith for him.
“Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the U.S. Constitution recognize my right to object to consuming something – this vaccine – because it violates my faith,” the employee explained.
UVA Health said, however, it’s own interpretation of the Bible must prevail.
“Stating that you are a Christian and citing biblical verses that do not address vaccinations is not sufficient basis for granting an exemption from the vaccine requirement,” the worker was told. “Christian philosophy does not have absolute rules that must be followed regarding vaccinations. Therefore, your request is one of a personal belief rather than religious doctrine.”
Liberty Counsel, which is representing the employee, said it is prepared to file a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
“Federal law protects the religious convictions of employees to avoid making them choose between following their conscience or facing punishment. It is unlawful for UVA Health to force employees to violate their conscience, especially where there are reasonable options to accommodate their religious convictions,” said Mat Staver, the founder and chief counsel of Liberty Counsel.
The legal organization noted the hospital system’s threatened “discipline” could include suspension and termination.
“This employee chooses not to accept anything that would ‘defile’ his body, which includes vaccines made from aborted fetal cell lines or vaccines developed by companies that profit from aborted fetal tissue,” Liberty Counsel explained.
“It is unlawful for an employer to refuse a reasonable accommodation for a flu vaccine exemption request. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires employers to make a reasonable accommodation for an employee’s sincerely held religious beliefs if doing so does not pose an undue hardship on the employer. Federal conscience protection law for health care workers [42 U.S.C. §300a-7 (c) (2)] also prohibits ‘biomedical or behavioral research’ grant recipients from discriminating against health personnel because employees refuse to perform an activity on the grounds that their performance ‘would be contrary to religious beliefs or moral convictions.'”
Liberty Counsel told UVA it has, inappropriately, “placed itself in judgment of whether [the worker’s] beliefs are reasonable, or correct religious doctrine, or whether they are typical of other Christians.”
“Shockingly, Immunize UVA has opined that [the worker’s] pro-life beliefs are merely ‘personal,’ and not religious,” Liberty Counsel said.
“UVA is on notice that [the worker’s] sincere religious beliefs about the evils of abortion and respect for the human body as the temple of the Holy Spirit mandate his refusal of the flu vaccine, and there exists a reasonable accommodation.”
THE GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley – https://gracethrufaith.com/end-times-prophecy/the-great-pyramid-of-giza/
The Great Pyramid’s builder knew all the dimensions of Earth and had a command of engineering, astronomy, and mathematics that would be impressive even today. If this guy didn’t have supernatural capability himself, he was certainly assisted by Someone who does. (Note: I first posted this article on Jan 23, 2005. I offer it again as a follow up to the recent article entitled “What’s To Become Of Egypt.”)
In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. It will be a sign and witness to the LORD Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the LORD because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he will rescue them. (Isaiah 19:19-20)
During a group discussion on the New Jerusalem, a question about its configuration was raised. Revelation 21 only says that it’s 1400 miles square and 1400 miles tall and to me that conjures up an image of a cube. But some see a pyramid, and when you think about it, John could have been describing just that. One thing led to another and pretty soon the subject of the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt came up. Someone asked me to conduct a study on it someday and I agreed. Here goes.
THE GREAT PYRAMID
Th Great Pyramid was most likely built in the 22nd century BC. Its construction required 10 years of planning and preparation and then 100,000 men spent 20 years completing it.
It’s different from all the other pyramids in Egypt. For one thing it’s made of stone, not bricks, and is the only one that’s not solid. There’s a series of passageways and several chambers inside. All of the 80 or so other pyramids came later, are grossly inferior copies, and unlike the Great Pyramid were used as gigantic headstones covering the tombs of the Pharaohs. (The Great Pyramid never served as a tomb.)
Since it’s located both on the border between Upper and Lower Egypt (Giza means border in Arabic) and in the heart of the two Egypts, the Great Pyramid seems to be referenced in the Isaiah passage above. And since the context of the Isaiah passage is the End Times, the connection with the New Jerusalem may not be so far fetched after all.
(Originally two separate kingdoms, Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt were joined together to become one. Upper Egypt is in the south and is more mountainous. Lower Egypt in the north was comprised mostly of the Nile delta region and the adjacent plains. The Biblical name for Egypt is Mizraim and literally means 2 Egypts since it’s the dual form of its root, Matzor. Mizraim was a son of Ham whose descendants first settled Egypt.)
Some Fascinating Details
The Great Pyramid was built on a 13-acre base made level to within less than 1″. 900 million cubic feet of granite blocks were used in its construction. To this day engineers can’t explain how the workers managed to fit those huge blocks together so carefully in building a monument nearly 500 feet high. Some of the larger ones weighed nearly 80 tons.
It originally had a face of polished white limestone consisting of 115,000 stones finished on all six sides to within .01 inch of perfectly straight. Cut on a bevel, they fit together with seams of less than 1/50th of an inch. They were then cemented together and polished to a high sheen. It’s said that the pyramid shone as if made of light itself and could be seen from over a hundred miles away.
The entire structure rests on 4 foundation stones that fit into sockets cut into the bedrock. These stones are designed to compensate for changes in temperature. They keep the pyramid square and level at all times, and in fact it’s square on every course.
It faces due North more accurately than we can position buildings today so that each side faces the four cardinal points of the compass. Its shadow has predicted equinoxes and solstices.
Originally it was to have a solid gold capstone that was a scale model of the pyramid itself. It was never put in place because the builders rejected it. Only on a pyramid can a capstone also be the head of the corner. (Psalm 118:22 and Matt.21:42)
A single entrance on the North side opens into a passageway that slopes down 150 feet to the base where it descends another 200 feet into the bedrock on a line that’s straight to within 1/4 of an inch over its 350 ft. length. The passageway, several chambers and all the air vents were pre-cut into the stones before they were placed and appeared in their finished form as the stones were fit together.
On one day in history the angle of this passageway looking up from the bottom pointed directly at the north star. If you could have drawn a line straight up from the pyramid into the sky on that day you would have intersected the exact center of our galaxy. That day was the vernal equinox in 2141 BC. Such an alignment happens only once every 26,000 years. As we’ll see below, the builders apparently knew this in advance and planned their construction accordingly.
The Great Pyramid was also built exactly in the centre of Earth’s land mass. Equal amounts of land are contained in each of the quadrants drawn off its 4 corners. Its height of 454 feet is the same as the average height above sea level of all land on earth.
The sides are concave at the bottom. Their curvature conforms to the curvature of the earth’s surface, so if you could draw a circle extended from any two adjacent corners it would equal the circumference of Earth at the Equator.
The Sacred cubit was the unit of measure used in building the Great Pyramid. Unlike the standard and royal cubits referenced in the Bible, its length is 25 pyramid inches, which are about the same as the inch used today in the US. These units of measure were carved into the wall, and can serve to decode the pyramid’s dimensions. For instance, multiplying the sacred cubit times 10 million equals the polar radius of earth. Multiplying the total weight of the Pyramid by 1000 trillion equals the weight of planet Earth.
In Hebrew each letter has a numerical value. The Pyramid’s height in inches equals the sum of all the letters in the Hebrew text of Isaiah 19:19-20 (5449). Air shafts keep the temperature inside at exactly 68 degrees, the same as the mean temperature of Earth. If you could walk up the side of the pyramid you’d rise 9 feet in vertical elevation for every 10 feet you cover.
It contains one piece of furniture, a box the same size as the Ark of the Covenant. It’s located in the King’s Chamber, a room with the same cubic volume as the bronze laver in Solomon’s Temple. It’s just barely too big to fit through the passageway, so it had to have been placed there as pyramid was built, over 1000 years before God gave Moses the Ark’s dimensions.
The main passageway descends at an angle of 26 degrees 18 minutes and 9 seconds. This is called the Christ angle because a line drawn from the Pyramid to Bethlehem is 26 degrees 18 minutes and 9 seconds from true north. At the bottom of the entry passageway is a rough hewn chamber called the bottomless pit. Together the passageway and chamber symbolize the fall of man from Adam’s sin, a gradual descent straight into Hell.
Markers carved into the wall in advance are keyed to the vernal equinox in 2141 BC, the only day in history when the stars lined up with the pyramid as described above. Whoever did the carving knew ahead of time that this would happen and designed the lengths of the various passageways to serve as time lines to predict significant future events. For example, the distance from the starting marker to the place where a steep, low ceiling passageway up to the King’s Chamber intersects the down sloping entry passageway foretells the date when the Law was given at Mt. Sinai. It symbolizes the opening of another path for man, this one a difficult climb leading him back to God. Part way up to the King’s chamber another short passageway leads off to another room called the Queen’s chamber. The distance to that passageway converts to the year Jesus was crucified and symbolizes the relief from the hard way of the Law that was purchased at the cross.
So it appears that the Queen’s chamber represents the Church. The Grand Gallery just before the King’s Chamber consists of 7 levels of polished pink granite and symbolizes the Millennium. And the King’s Chamber represents eternity. Pyramid buffs see many other significant dates in Christianity foretold in the lengths of the various passageways and chambers, but so far the date of the 2nd Coming has eluded them.
WHO BUILT THE GREAT PYRAMID?
The identity of the architect is unknown, but three candidates come to the top of most lists:
Eusibius quotes an Egyptian historian named Manetheo who attributes construction to the Hyksos or Shepherd Kings who came from Arabia, conquered Egypt without a battle, destroyed their pagan temples and converted Egypt to monotheism. They built the Great Pyramid and then left for Judea. Job, after whom a book of the Bible is named, might have been part of this group. A generation later the Egyptians reverted to paganism.
Some say Enoch, making the Pyramid a pre-flood monument like the nearby Sphinx. If you measure a side from corner to corner in sacred cubits it equals 365.242, the number of days in our year and Enoch’s age when he was raptured. (Because of their concave nature there are three ways to measure a side. One way equals the solar year, as above. The second way equals the sidereal year, slightly longer at 365.256, and the third equals the anomalistic year of 365.259 days. The last two are used mostly in astronomy. If that isn’t astonishing enough for you, keep in mind that none of these measurements would apply until 1300 years later when the length of the Earth’s orbit increased by 5.25 days.)
Most popular is Shem, son of Noah. Though born before the Great Flood, Shem outlived 8 of the first 9 generations that followed it, and even outlived Abraham. Some believe Shem was the priest called Melchizedek in Genesis 14.
