...and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven...

September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Mysterious Comet ISON Screaming Past The Sun: Where To Watch Thanksgiving Toast In Space

The much-awaited showy comet, on Thanksgiving Day, will scream past the surface of the Sun, skimming over the roiling surface of our star at a height of just 1.1 million kilometers (700,000 miles). Could light up with one of the most spectacular sights of a generation, shining mightily, or blast off chunks of itself, or disintegrate completely during this close encounter, we do not know what exactly will happen.
But you can watch the whole thing live on Google+! NASA is holding a live video Hangout on G+ during ISON's perihelion passage (peri = close, helion = Sun, so perihelion is the closest point in an object's orbit to the Sun). The event is from 18:00 - 20:30 UTC (1:00 - 3:30 p.m. EST).

There will be live feed from NASA's SOHO Sun-observing satellite and from the Kitt Peak Observatory solar telescope.
Moreover, there will be a live talk about the comet, the Sun, and what astronomers will be seeing on the screen, according to Slate.com.
"Guests include astronomers C. Alex Young, W. Dean Pesnell, Karl Battams (who runs the SunGrazingComets feed on Twitter), and me (reporter from Slate)! (He'll) be on from 1:30 - 2:30 EST to talk about the comet, the Sun, and what we'll be seeing on the screen."
They will also be answering questions live from Twitter. So, ask away using the hashtags#ISON and #askNASA.
A dusty cosmic snowball named Comet ISON in streaking towards us.
"There's great interest in comet ISON," said Don Yeomans, a senior research scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "First, it's coming from the very edge of our solar system so it stills retains the primordial ices from which it formed four-and-a-half billion years ago.
"It's been traveling from the outer edge of the solar system for about five-and-a-half million years to reach us in the inner solar system, and it's going to make an extremely close approach to the sun. Hence it could become very bright and possibly a very easy naked-eye object in early December," he added.
NASA will capture images of ISON's approach to the sun to share them with the public tomorrow via its website.
Using Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft, NASA will capture images from three different positions as ISON moves through its perihelion, the point in its orbit that is closest to the sun. The website will show near real-time images along with video of ISON's journey and possible end.
The images should begin appearing sometime between 12:45 pm and 1:00 pm ET, NASA reported on the website.
Scientists are expecting that by studying ISON, they will gain insight about the ancient formation of the solar system and its planets.
"The reason we study Comet ISON to begin with is because it's a relic," said Carey Lisse, a senior research scientist with Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, during a NASA news conference Tuesday.
"It's a dinosaur bone of solar system formation. You need comets in order to build the planets. This comet has been in a deep freeze half way to the next star for the last four and a half billion years. It's just been coming in over the last few millions years and possibly even started around the dawn of man," he added.
For the past year, scientists have been tracking ISON's movement as it hurtles towards the inner solar system, and on Nov. 28, it will have a close encounter with the sun and pass through the corona of the sun itself.
Relatively recently, the 4.6 billion years old comet, give or take, was knocked out of the distant Oort cloud-a belt of comets on the very edge of the Solar System-and began its journey towards the sun.
There are three possible scenarios for what will happen on Nov.28.
Option 1 is the gravitational force of the sun could stretch the comet apart, pulling it beyond breaking point and compelling it to explode as it leaves the corona.
Option 2 is ISON to submit to the heat of the sun. Comets are composed of icy and frozen gases, and while this one is a "star-grazer", expected to only pass the sun once, it could experience heat of up to 2,760 degrees centigrade (5000 degrees Fahrenheit) and may simply fade away.
Final option is the one many scientists and fans on Earth are hoping for.
As the comet flies through the corona, the gases could be heated up and ignited just enough to develop a huge tail after its brush with the Sun, but not enough to destroy it.
If this happens, millions of people in Earth's northern hemisphere will be able to witness an extraordinary display in the night sky. The comet could appear as a bright object near the horizon, with a tail extending all the way overhead.
Should it survive, millions of people in Earth's northern hemisphere will be able to see Comet ISON with the naked eye through December. The comet could appear as a bright object near the horizon, with a tail extending all the way overhead.
Moreover, for the first time using a spectrometer, scientists hope to measure the contents of the tail. They will be able to measure something which we know has existed, almost entirely unchanged, since the start of the solar system.
