A Touch From God is ‘More Than Goose Bumps and Tears’

There are certain times when the Lord calls us out of the routine of our daily lives. These are special seasons where His only command is, “Seek My face.” The Lord has something precious and vitally important to give us that the familiar pattern of our daily lives cannot accommodate. During such times people are often delivered of sins that have plagued them for years; others discover a new depth in their walk with God and, thus, greater effectiveness in ministry and prayer. Still others obtain breakthroughs for their families and friends as the Lord, in response to their drawing near to Him, brings their loved ones into His kingdom. Many times we expect spiritual breakthroughs to occur automatically, but most things we obtain from Heaven arrive via our asking, seeking, and knocking. In other words, we have not because we ask not. Pursuing the Lord is the secret to a fulfilled life. Recall the words of King David. He was a man who was forced to live in the wilderness; he was hunted by enemies and slandered throughout the nation by King Saul and his cohorts. David had many reasons to fear, yet instead he lived boldly. Where did David’s confidence come from? He said, “I sought the Lord, and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears” (Ps. 34:4). David wasn’t delivered from “all [his] fears” simply in the routine of life’s course. No, he said, “I sought the Lord . . . and He . . . delivered me.” When we seek God, our faith is restored. As we draw near to the fullness of God, our fear is subdued. More

Western sanctions on Iran are close to achieving their desired result of bringing Iran’s military nuclear program to a halt, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told European leaders in phone conversations over the weekend, according to a statement released by the Prime Minister’s Office Saturday. Speaking ahead of new P5+1 talks with Iran in Geneva this coming week, Netanyahu told French President Francois Hollande and British Prime Minister David Cameron that the sanctions should not be lifted as long as Iran continues enriching uranium for the development of nuclear weapons, officials in Jerusalem said Saturday. According to the officials, Netanyahu also warned Hollande and Cameron that Iran had ignored UN Security Council resolutions in the past, and that Tehran has been directly involved in terrorist activities across the globe. More

North Korea warns of ‘All-Out War’

Seoul (AFP) – North Korea on Saturday issued a fresh warning of an “all-out war”, urging the United States to stop military drills and what it described as “nuclear blackmail”. In a thinly veiled threat to strike the United States, the North’s National Defence Commission (NDC), chaired by leader Kim Jong-Un, said the US government must withdraw its policy of hostility against the North if it wants peace on both the Korean peninsula and the “US mainland”. ”(The United States) must bear it in mind that reckless provocative acts would meet our retaliatory strikes and lead to an all-out war of justice for a final showdown with the United States,” a spokesman of the NDC was quoted as saying in a statement carried by Pyongyang’s Korean Central News Agency. ”We emphasize again that the United States must withdraw various measures aimed to isolate and strangulate us. Dependent upon this are… peace and security, not only on the Korean peninsula but the US mainland as well.” The comments come after a two-day joint naval drill between Japan, South Korea and the US, which included an American nuclear aircraft carrier, sparked a series of angry responses and threats from Pyongyang. More

‘I Sure Did’: Tennessee Pastor Unapologetic for Speaking About God at Public School Assembly

SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. – A pastor in Tennessee is refusing to apologize for speaking about God at a public school assembly last month, where he gave a speech in memory of the 9/11 attack on American soil. “Did I mention God in the speech that day?” Pastor Alan Stewart of Rechoboth Baptist Church in Soddy-Daisy asked local television stationWRCB-TV. “I sure did.” Stewart had been invited to speak at Sale Creek Middle/High School on September 11th, and so, he decided that he wanted to give the students hope. According to a transcript of the speech, he mentioned God six times, and quoted one Scripture during his seven-minute talk. “In the days that followed, as a pastor, I was asked a hundreds times, ‘How do you answer this from Scripture?’” he explained to students that day. “My mind recalled a moment in Luke 13:4 where Jesus had addressed a national event where the tower in Siloam had fallen on innocent people and their lives were lost.”More

Thousands of Youth Nationwide Gather to Challenge Peers to Read, Live Scripture

Thousands of youth from across the nation gathered this past Wednesday to challenge each other to read and live out the Scriptures in their everyday lives in an annual event known as “Fields of Faith.” The event, organized by Fellowship of Christian Athletes, is held every second Wednesday in October. Its mission is to see students across America challenge each other to read the Bible. The hour-long gathering, held on school athletic fields and in gymnasiums nationwide, is filled with Scripture reading and personal testimonies. “The reality is we are losing the spiritual war in America,” the Fields of Faith website states. “There is a movement in our country to remove God from the public square. It is rapidly taking ground and grows more emboldened every day.” Fellowship of Christian Athletes states that part of the problem today is that youth are not reading their Bibles. More

Air Force Fires Two Star General in Charge of Nuke Missiles, 2nd in 48 Hours

The Air Force’s two star general in charge of the units responsible for its 450 nuclear missiles has been fired “due to a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership and judgment.” Maj. Gen. Michael Carey has been removed from command of the 20th Air Force, according to an Air Force statement.  That command is responsible for the three wings that maintain control of the 450 intercontinental ballistic missiles scattered in missile silos across the northern plains. Lt. Gen. James Kowalski, the commander of Air Force Global Strike Command, made the decision because of what the statement said was a  ”loss of trust and confidence. The statement added that  Kowalski made the decision to relieve Carey based on information from an Inspector General investigation into Carey’s behavior during a temporary duty assignment which is the military’s term for business travel. “The allegations are not related to operational readiness or the inspection results of any 20th AF unit, nor do they involve sexual misconduct,” said the statement.  Carey has been reassigned to an undetermined job within the Air Force pending the results of the investigation. “20th AF continues to execute its mission of around-the-clock nuclear deterrence in a safe, secure and effective manner,” Kowalski is quoted as saying in the statement. “It’s unfortunate that I’ve had to relieve an officer who’s had an otherwise distinctive career spanning 35 years of commendable service.” More

Category 4 Cyclone Phalin making Landfall in India, Catastrophic Damage expected.

map_specnewsdct-01_ltst_4namus_enus_650x366Tropical Cyclone Phailin intensified rapidly in the Bay of Bengal on Thursday and is now headed for a landfall along the eastern coast of India. Estimated top sustained winds increased from 65 mph to 155 mph in just 24 hours, according to Dr. Jeff Masters of Weather Underground.  As of Saturday morning (U.S. time), Phailin was rated as the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, with maximum sustained winds around 150 mph. According to a NOAA weather satellite, Phailin’s central pressure bottomed out to 910 mbar, allowing winds to reach 175 mph on Friday evening. Phailin will landfall shortly along the coast of the state of Odisha or the far northeastern Andrha Pradesh state, northeast of the town of Visakhapatnam in India. More

While an Oklahoma couple were busy living out their fantasies in a video game, police say in real life their 2-year-old daughter was starving to death. Mark Knapp, 48, and Elizabeth Pester, 33, of Tulsa, have been arrested and charged with child neglect and abuse after their young daughter landed in a hospital in critical condition. Knapp and Pester were booked Tuesday night into the Tulsa County Jail on $50,000 bond each.  According to the arrest report obtained by Tulsa World, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter was rushed to St Francis Hospital weighing only 13lbs. When officers came to taken the parents into custody, they said Knapp and Pester were busy playing video games. Detective Denielle Bishop, who has been assigned to the case, told the station Newson6 that the little girl cannot walk or move, and has only limited vocal skills. Knapp and Pester’s daughter was born in 2010, and has been in and out of hospitals for failure to thrive. In June 2012, the toddler was taken into the custody of the Department of Human Services for being underweight compared to other children in her age group. More

Category 4 Tropical Cyclone Phailin makes landfall in India: 500,000 evacuated

October 12, 2013 – INDIA – As many as 500,000 people in India have been evacuated as a massive cyclone sweeps through the Bay of Bengal towards the east coast. Cyclone Phailin, categorized as “very severe” by weather forecasters, is expected to hit Orissa and Andhra Pradesh states on Saturday evening. The Meteorological Department has predicted the storm will bring winds of up to 220km/h (136mph). A super-cyclone in 1999 killed more than 10,000 people in Orissa. But officials say this time they are better prepared, the BBC’s Sanjoy Majumder in Orissa reports. Officials said Cyclone Phailin was expected to make landfall close to the city of Gopalpur (Orissa state), bringing a storm surge of at least 3m (10ft) that was likely to cause “extensive damage” to mud houses on the coast. “No-one will be allowed to stay in mud and thatched houses in the coastal areas,” said Orissa’s Disaster Management Minister Surya Narayan Patra. The army is on standby in the two states for emergency and relief operations. Officials said helicopters and food packages were ready to be dropped in the storm-affected areas. Meanwhile, the US Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Centre predicted that Phailin could produce gusts of up to 296km/h (184 mph), while the London-based Tropical Storm Risk classified Phailin as a Category Five storm – the most powerful. Janmejay Mohapatra, a resident of Orissa state capital Bhubaneswar, said it was too dangerous to go out now, as trees were down and debris was flying everywhere. Cyclone Phailin is expected to be the biggest storm to hit the region for 14 years. “Already the rain is very heavy and the wind is gusting at 100-120km an hour,” he told the BBC. “The phone lines are down where I am and we have no electricity.” –BBC

Alaska’s Veniaminof Volcano erupts- sends traces of ash over 2 Alaskan communities

October 12, 2013 – ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A volcano on the Alaska Peninsula has again become active during a months-long eruption, with a trace of ash falling on communities up to 35 miles away. The Alaska Volcano Observatory says in a release that Veniaminof Volcano resumed its 2013 eruption on Saturday after being quiet for about a month. It’s been marked by lava flows, fountaining and intermittent but small ash, steam and gas plumes. The plumes usually only travel a few miles from the volcano, but the communities of Chignik Lake and Chignik Lagoon, about 35 miles away, reported trace ash on Friday. The observatory says ash fall from the volcano 480 miles southwest of Anchorage is not considered to be significant. The eruption started in June. –News Miner

New Zealand’s White Island Volcano erupts: alert level raised

October 12, 2013 – NEW ZEALAND – New Zealand’s geological agency GNS Science said on Saturday that it’s raised the alert level for White Island after the volcano erupted. The agency said a moderate explosion eruption, lasting about a minute, happened just after 8 p.m. Friday night. GNS Science said the volcanic alert level has been raised from one to two which indicates minor activity. The aviation color code has been upgraded to orange, the second- highest alert level. GNS volcanologist Arthur Jolly said the eruption was about the same size as the previous one in August 2012, Radio New Zealand reported. Jolly said the eruption threw mostly mud, rather than ash, into the air. He said bad weather on Saturday prevented GNS volcanologists from flying over the island to observe the volcano. –Global Times

6.4 magnitude earthquake strikes seafloor south of Greece

Greece 10 12
October 12, 2013 – GREECE – An earthquake of 6.4 magnitude was detected in the Mediterranean Sea west of the island of Crete on Saturday, but there were no reports of casualties or damage, the Greek police and fire brigade said. The center of the quake, which struck at 1311 GMT, was 22.5 miles below the seabed 43 miles west of Chania on Crete, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Greece is often rocked by earthquakes. Most cause no serious damage but a 5.9 magnitude quake in 1999 killed 143 people. –Reuters

6.1 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Venezuela

Ven 10 12
October 12, 2013 – VENEZUELA – Parts of Guyana shook last night in the aftermath of a 6.0-Richter scale earthquake just offshore Sucre, Venezuela and about 87 kilometers west of Port of Spain, in neighboring Trinidad and Tobago. At around 10:15 pm, the effects of the earthquake could be felt here and persons from across the country reported feeling the tremors. The tremors would have been the strongest in the northwest of the country. There were no reports of injuries or damage at press time. “We are on the South American plate … when its tip rubs the tip of the Caribbean plate it will create waves and we will have these (tremors) but the thing is no one knows when this will happen…,” science professor and astronomer Dr. Alfred Bhulai explained last evening. Moderate shaking was experienced in many parts of Trinidad and the duration of the temblor closer to the epicenter was between 15 and 20 seconds. The US Geological Survey is reporting that the earthquake occurred at a depth of 79.4 km.  –Stabroek News

Fukushima radiation levels hit 2-year high: workers contaminated in latest mishap

October 12, 2013 – JAPAN – Seawater just outside one of Japan’s damaged Fukushima Daiichi reactors registered radiation levels on Wednesday 13 times the previous day’s reading, the operator of the crippled nuclear plant said on Thursday. Japan’s Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), said combined Cesium-134 and Cesium-137 readings just outside the damaged No. 2 reactor jumped to 1,200 becquerels per liter on Wednesday, the highest levels recorded since late 2011. Regulatory limits for Cesium, which emits powerful gamma radiation and is potentially fatal to humans, is 90 bq/liter for Cesium-137 and 60 bq/liter for Cesium-134. A TEPCO spokesman said the sudden spike in radiation was caused by construction work near the No. 2 building, Reuters reported. News of the spike in radiation levels is the latest setback this week for TEPCO, which has been harshly criticized for its handling of the nuclear disaster in the wake of the massive quake and tsunami that hit the power station in March 2011, triggering three reactor meltdowns. On Wednesday, six workers were exposed to radiation after a pipe connected to a contaminated water treatment system was mistakenly detached. Reuters estimates that at least 7 tons of water escaped the system. Earlier, a worker accidentally switched off a water pump used to channel water into the reactor building. Crews are using chemicals to fortify the soil around the Fukushima reactor buildings – hundreds of meters from the port entrance that connects to the Pacific Ocean – to prevent contaminated water from flowing into the ocean.
The pressure from injecting chemicals into the ground forced contaminated soil out into the port area, the spokesman said. TEPCO also said Cesium-137 readings just outside the silt fence next to the No.2 reactor increased to160 bq/liter, a number that exceeds the regulatory limit and almost double the previous day’s reading. Radiation from radioactive water leaking from the plant is mostly confined to the harbor around the facility, officials have said. TEPCO, which is using hundreds of tons of water in an effort to keep the reactors from overheating, has struggled to contain the buildup of radioactive water at the plant. The accidents at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, situated 220 km (130 miles) from Tokyo, are fueling doubts over TEPCO’s abilities to oversee a hugely complicated cleanup that is expected to take decades. Last week, the beleaguered Japanese energy company said 430 liters (113 gallons) of contaminated water had leaked from a storage tank at Fukushima and probably flowed to the ocean. Meanwhile, Japanese officials have said there is no environmental threat to other countries as radiation will be diluted by the sea. Tokyo, despite lingering concerns over the long-term safety situation at Fukushima, was selected last month to host the 2020 Olympic Games. –RT
Workers contaminated: Six workers at Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant have been doused with highly radioactive water after wrongly disconnecting a pipe. The accident sent toxic water spilling on to them and the entire floor of the facility which houses a set of three units designed for water treatment. The workers were wearing face masks with filters, protective hazmat suits and raingear, and their exposure is believed minor but still under investigation, said Yoshimi Hitosugi, spokesman for operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco). The workers were part of an 11-member team, and the remaining five were not splashed, he said. They managed to reattach the pipe later. The accident is latest in a string of mishaps. A week earlier, workers overfilled a storage tank without fully checking water levels, and caused a leak of 430 litres (113 gallons) of contaminated water which is thought to have run into the sea. Tepco has been battling to contain radioactive water since the plant suffered triple meltdowns and hydrogen explosions following a devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. In the latest incident, the company said a worker mistakenly detached a pipe connected to a treatment system which removes salt from the hundreds of tonnes of cooling water Tepco pumps over the melted fuel in wrecked reactors. Tepco said seven tonnes of water were spilled in Wednesday’s incident but was contained within the site. The accidents at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, 130 miles (220 kilometres) north of Tokyo, are adding to a crisis no one seems to know how to contain, and stirring doubt over Tepco’s abilities to carry out a complex cleanup widely expected to take decades. –Sky News

Glitch Shuts Down Welfare Debit Card System Nationwide…

People in Ohio, Michigan and 15 other states found themselves unable to use their food stamp debit-style cards on Saturday, after a routine test of backup systems by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure. At about 9 a.m. Saturday, reports from across the country began pouring in that customers’ EBT cards were not working in stores. At 2 p.m., an EBT customer service representative told CBS Boston that the system was currently down for a computer system upgrade. Xerox spokeswoman Jennifer Wasmer released further details later in the afternoon in an emailed statement. “While the electronic benefits system is now up and running, beneficiaries in the 17 affected states continue to experience connectivity issues to access their benefits. Technical staff is addressing the issue and expect the system to be restored soon,”  Wasmer said. “Beneficiaries requiring access to their benefits can work with their local retailers who can activate an emergency voucher system where available. We appreciate our clients’ patience while we work through this outage as quickly as possible.” More
