"Men's hearts failing them for fear" -- brought home in a very real way
Pray for me. Pray for the young man. Obviously the Lord spared his life for a purpose. Immediately after the impact, I swerved my car so as not to run over the body of the young man. This may have saved his life.
What type of hopelessness and despair would lead one to attempt to take his life in such a gruesome fashion? The investigating officers told me they had seen many such suicide attempts recently. Fr. Seraphim Rose, the Russian Orthodox author of ORTHODOXY AND THE RELIGION OF THE FUTURE had written that mass suicide was one of the ways in which Satan would "enter naked" into the last days.
I have now seen it and been far too close to it personally for comfort. Pray for me. Pray for those afflicted with a spirit of suicide that could well take others with them as could have been the case tonight. Had I been traveling faster, had the traffic been much heavier, it could have been a chain collision tragedy.
In His Love,
It's funny/weird that you mention this because the night after the election my husband and I watched an episode of South Park (sick but funny show) where suicide was brought up in regards to McCain supporters having lost the election. I just thought that maybe there was a correlation with this post and the satanic influence in the world.
May Jesus shine His light and bring comfort and Truth to this world.
That this young man was out of his mind on some type of substance was Satan's way of leading him to confusion and absolute despair. If he had been thinking clearly, he would have realized that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
However, the MAIN thing to concentrate on in the here and now is this:
1) the young man lived
2) and you lived
3) not to ALLOW this young man's "darkness of the soul" to become contagious and TOXIC
4) but rather to THANK our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that you are both alive and have been given the opportunity to go on.
My prayers remain with you both.
In Jesus' name AMEN.
Last week just ten hours before I took off to GB a car crashed into mine, into the driver's side and just some hours later on the way to the airport a big fox ran into my car crashing the front side and taking with him both fog lights. I still could reach the plane - thanks for all your prayers - it was a save and a fruitful trip! But this is nothing compared to what you went through now, Constance!
Sorry to hear that you had to go through that ordeal, but glad to hear that nothing happened to you, and that this young man is relatively speaking, okay.
May Abba, show him the lie that suicide will some how make things better.. and that he turn to Yeshua and be set free. May he know what it means to be a new creation, and have a new identity in Yeshua the Messiah...may he be set free from the slavery of drugs through this near brush with death....
I will pray, if it's God's will that you actually get a chance to speak to him and you can tell him that there are a lot of people praying for his well-being.
May he really sense the reality and power of the prayers upholding him and bringing him to repentance...
Isn't that just what The Adversary wants ?
It's a perfect example of Satan trying to wreck two lives for the price of one. And yours was probably the one he was most interested in wrecking.
Constance , don't forget that the devil is the "accuser of the brethren". Don't let this linger in your soul or derail your life in any way.
Jesus has it all under control.
This only exposes a desperate Satan with not much time left.
Never a dull moment, huh?
I agree with Paul completely.
"He is filled with fury because he knows that his time is short". Revelations:12-12
This most definitely happened for a reason, and since our Lord is in charge do not allow the incident to trouble you any further. Instead give God glory that it happened, for you were instrumental in saving the young man's life. Now he will hopefully receive some counseling, but most importantly he will hopefully receive the truth and be saved. That is how our perfect Lord takes a tragic situation and makes it beautiful.
Recently, I have seen and heard things I would not have accepted as truth before. I am convinced that as the days grow darker we shall see the darkness become even denser , while even the light grows brighter.
I'll be praying for you and that young man today.
There are many people, who by drugs or alcohol makes choices they wouldn't when sober.
In the broader picture, suffering is a huge tool satan uses against us all. When under stress, when in pain, when suffering do we turn to Jesus or do we turn to idols? When we get angry with God over some perceived disappointment regarding someone suffering, where do we turn? Satan seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. Take a look at thing like Lakeland and C. Peter Wagner's ICA. People are obsessed over the need for physical healing, and why, because we look for end of suffering.
True peace is found in Jesus. True peace is not the absence of pain or suffering or conflict but is being able to stand. Being able to stand when all understanding says that you shouldn't. This is the true peace that passes understanding.
We do need to pray that those suffering, in despair, in fear, in anger, in seperation from God find the truth of the true Peace of God. Pray that they recognize the idols of false peace for what they are.
Because I have personally known the horror of being around people who were suicidal, who threatened it, who attempted it....because I personally have known the horror of being around such people I know exactly how you feel.
Apart from those who are suicidal due to mental illness or drug/alcohol abuse, suicide can often be the ultimate emotional blackmail strategy. Sometimes, it is a mixture of all of the above.
Rest assured I will make your situation - and the young man's - a special prayer intention of mine when I attend Mass later this morning.
May God bless you and hold you carefully close to His Heart.
I'm so sorry for what happened and I thank the Lord that He has guarded you. But it is also true that it is in those time that we know how the Lord has kept us, how He has put a shield around us. How true is the Word of God and with the salmist we can say:
" Psalm 91
1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
And certainly He did.
Thank you Constance for all your work. May the Lord strengthen you and protect you day after day.
“You hem me in—behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” Psalm 139
God clearly placed this young man "in your path" for a reason - if only to get MANY people praying for him.
(This just gives me chills!!!)
Thanks you so much for that word. I know it was meant for Constance, but you just helped me a great deal.
Sorry the link is so long. I'll be praying for you. The Lord can use this, as you well know, for His glory, what satan may have tried to use as your ruin. I know you walk around with a target on you, but God is so much bigger. Do you get to talk to the individual? Maybe you will be the one to pierce his darkness with the Light that is Christ? Maybe you can sue him for hours spent listening you...I am glad that your heart did not fail you. Dispair becomes more popular in a culture that is sold a fantasy. It used to be a fantsy that came true for many and maybe most. I am sure more dispair will show itself as the fantsy seems harder to reach or maintain.
Yes, most definitely praying for both of you.
What was intended for evil, the Lord turns to good. All things work for good, to those who are called by the Lord, according to His purpose.
a fellow watchman, sirlancelot.
I am thankful the man who jumped in fron of your car did not share the same fate.
I am strugging with being a doomsayer. I'm not sure I can continue. At any rate, either we are in deeper 'doo' that we know, or we are in danger of digging our own graves through our re-reporting.
Here then it is:
"7/7, 9/11 'and Now' 11/12-18???"
Is the USA being setup for a nuclear attack on Wednesday?
This document -NORAD, USNORTHCOM participate in Exercise Vigilant Shield 09 just released from Northcom, reveals the plan to conduct a simulated Nuclear assault on the USA consisting of 3 targeted cities, as well as other global areas. "These linked exercises will take place and are being conducted throughout the United States and in conjunction with several partner nations including Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, as well as the Territory of Guam."
Given that the subway bombings in London, UK and the destruction of the WTC buildings in New York, both occurred "co-incidentally" while "identical" simulations were underway,(in both countries!!!) is there any reason to wonder just what will take place starting day after tomorrow and continuing for a week?
The exercise previously scheduled for last month was better documented in this Exercise Vigilant Shield ’08 slated for October 15-20 press release"
Here's a print version of the November press release:
November 5, 2008
PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command will participate in Exercise Vigilant Shield 09 Nov. 12 - 18.
The focus of VS09 is on homeland defense and civil support. The exercise will include scenarios to achieve exercise objectives within the maritime, aerospace, ballistic missile defense, cyber, consequence management, strategic communications, and counter terrorism domains.
VS09 will run concurrent with other Department of Defense-sponsored and international exercises to more realistically test the synchronized response of federal, state, local and international mission partners in preparation for homeland defense, homeland security and civil support missions in the United States and abroad.
Concurrent exercises include U.S. Strategic Command GLOBAL LIGHTNING 09 and BULWARK DEFENDER 09; Canada Command DETERMINED DRAGON; California National Guard VIGILANT GUARD; and the State of California GOLDEN GUARDIAN.
VS09 is a Command Post Exercise. During a CPX, many of the forces involved in the exercise are notional and most of the real forces and equipment are not deployed from their home bases.
NORAD is the bi-national command charged with aerospace warning and control, missile warning as well as maritime for the United States and Canada.
Formed in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, USNORTHCOM is responsible for Homeland Defense and civil support missions.
Have they learned anything from the last 2 exercises?
We don't have long to wait.
Drop, and cover!
California "Shake-Out Drill" has a counter on it that shows 2 days 21 hours on it. So, the date would be 11/13/08.
Interesting info. Thanks for sharing. I'll be praying.
My bad! It's getting so my fingers move so much faster than my eyes, my brain can't keep the 2 of them co-ordinated.
The shakeout date IS Thursday November 13th 2008, three days from now.
You can download MP3 files of narrated simulations at the site.
Nothing in mainstream so far about Northcom.
Interesting article in the context of your previous posts:
"Osama bin Laden is planning an attack against the United States that will "outdo by far" September 11, 2001, an Arab newspaper in London has reported."
"And, a former senior Yemeni al-Qaeda operative said, the terrorist organisation has entered a "positive phase", reinforcing specific training camps around the world that will lead the next "wave of action" against the West."
"The warning, on the front page of an Arabic newspaper published in London, Al-Quds Al-Arabi - and reported widely in the major Italian papers - quotes a person described as being "very close to al-Qaeda" in Yemen."
"Bin Laden is himself closely following preparations for an attack against the US and aims to "change the face of world politics and economics", the report says.
The source also said that, during the next few days, the terrorist organisation might send a sign of its violent intentions."
"The warning has emerged at the same time as publication of a report leaked to London's Telegraph newspaper, which reveals that a document drawn up by the intelligence branch of the Ministry of Defence says that thousands of extremists are active in Britain."
"The document says the operatives are predominantly British-born and aged between 18 and 30. Many are believed to have been trained in overseas terrorist camps."
(11/10/2008) so "during the next few days" would fit within the timeframe of the scheduled "drills".
Time will tell.
I will try to track down the Telegraph story.
Fear is the tool the enemies use to weaken those who rely on peace.
True Peace is not the absence of turmoil but the presence of God in it's midst.
I think the Northcom event is next year, 2009?
The 2008 event just took place in October, this year....
Is that correct?
The event was 'originally' scheduled for October and was postponed (probably the election) and has now been rescheduled.
The dates referenced in the Northcom site Northcom Exercise Vigilant Shield 09 (when tinyurl.com goes down so do all our tiny links)
I found this quote from Maj. William B. Fox, former U.S. marine corp officer, who says: "Operation Vigilant Shield, running from Nov 12-18, 2008, is much too big to ignore, as it will link multiple concurrent exercises including USSTRATCOM Global Lightning 09, Bulwark Defender 09, Canada Command Determined Dragon, California National Guard Vigilant Guard, and State of California Golden Guardian. Unfortunately, according to USNORTHCOM, specific information about Vigilant Shield scenarios will not be available for weeks, permitting less time to analyze the situation."
I found that at Vigilant Shield
(tinyurl.com is down)
The above site features these people:
Lt. Col. Guy S. Razer - retired U.S. Air Force Command fighter pilot.
Dr. James H. Fetzer and Major William B. Fox - former U.S. Marine Corps officers.
Captain Eric H. May and Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell -former members of Army intelligence.
They seem pretty solid.
'e caveat emptor' of course.
The Northcom site is poorly formatted and that could be incompetance or deliberate obfuscation.
I'll be watching closely to try to get clarification
In this document Northcom - Canada - US Civil Assistance Plan -CAP
CAP, the agreement to place US troops on Canadian soil is clearly spelled out.
Just in case it goes AWOL from Northcom's site I've archived it here Canada - US Civil Assistance Plan -CAP (right click to download and save)
Here is the first section:
CANADA - US CIVIL ASSISTANCE PLAN (CAP) BASE PLAN
1ote: Annexes are exempt from mandator’ disclosure and are being withheld because
References: See Annex W these records are pre-decisional plans. See 5 1 SC 52(h)(5)]
a. General. The purpose of the Canada-United States Civil Assistance Plan (CAP) is to provide a framework for the military of one nation to provide support to the military of the other nation in the performance of civil support operations (e.g., floods, forest fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, and effects of a terrorist attack).
(1) Support covered under this plan will only be provided when agreed to by appropriate authorities in both the Government of Canada and the United States Government.
(2) When approved, military forces from one nation augment the other nation’s forces in civil support operations. Support under this plan is not provided directly to civil authorities, but rather to the other nation’s military.
(3) Support for law enforcement operations is not covered in this plan and will be included in the Canada - United States Combined Defense Plan (CDP).
(4) Guidance and direction to develop this plan is derived from the
Canada — United States Basic Defense Document (BDD), 08 July 2006 (Ref if).
This plan may be used alone, or concurrent with the Canada-US Combined
Defense Plan or other national plans. The Commander, Canada Command
(Comd Canada COM) and Commander, US Northern Command
(CDRUSNORTHCOM) are the designated planning agents for the development
of this plan."
CDP is a bit harder to find but it will show up.
Canadian webites (.gc.ca) are mute about this.
I was trying to make heads or tails of the info, it's been a long weekend and my understand a bit dulled...
From what I could determine, it looked like it was being announced a year in advance..but, I wasn't sure...
This information is all over the Internet.
I don't know how REAL this is, but they are clearly talking about an upcoming US NORTHCOM Exercise called, "Vigilant Shield 09" and do in fact mention the dates of November 12-18, 2008.
Here is the tiny URL for one article in particular:
Thanks for all the latest VS09 news.
Do you know if they do this exercise
every year? Here is a Fact Sheet NORAD put out regarding VS08. Wonder why they label the exercise the way they do. I understand why Sarah asked the question about the date.
Thanks for any additional info.
That's my 'take' on the labelling.
I have witnessed a car pedestrian accident and it is a tragedy. I was alble to simply drive on, but to be forced to 2nd guess yourself, and try to find some way to sort through the barrage of feelings raging in the aftermath of such an unfortunate event would be heart breaking.
Constance, Thank God it was you, the young man chose to use as an instrument of destruction, because God says "No weapon formed against you will prosper".
If he had walked in front of any other vehicle it's unlikely he would be alive. This is not to commend your driving skills, though I am sure they are excellent.
It is rather an observation that God, while refusing to override the sucidial intention and will, was able to use the 'cushioning' effect of the angels appointed to guard your travels to buffer the impact.
That you have been traumatized, is testament to the sufferings of Christ we are called to share. That His grace is sufficient, will be born out in the days ahead and in the revelatory effect this will have on this poor ravaged soul.
The prayers of the righteous, fervent, effective and humble are at the moment availing much.
In a practical vein, does your insurance cover this damage to your vehicle? Can we help if not?
When I suggested you might become a lightning rod I never imagined satan would hurl human beings at you.
Gob Bless you sister, friend.
When I suggested you might become a lightning rod I never imagined satan would hurl human beings at you.
Wonderful line. The imagery is great.
Body builder at 3 o'clock and little old lady zooming down head first at 7 o'clock.
My insurance is covering under "comprehensive" rather than collision as the Detective's report said it was definitely not an accident but a suicide attempt. That leaves me with a $250 deductible. Thanks for asking! (I was blessed they are covering it under comprehensive -- under collision it would have been a $500 deductible
And the light of higher knowledge will shine forth in the "New Republic"...
"And the method that nature has followed hitherto in the shaping of the world, whereby weakness was prevented from propagating weakness, and cowardice and feebleness were saved from the accomplishment of their desires... the method that must in some cases still be called in to the help of man, is death."
"The men of the New Republic will not be squeamish, either, in facing or inflicting death, because they will have a fuller sense of the possibilities of life than we possess. They will have an ideal that will make killing worth the while; like Abraham, they will have the faith to kill, and they will have no superstitions about death. They will naturally regard the modest suicide of incurably melancholy, or diseased or helpless persons as a high and courageous act of duty rather than a crime."
H.G. Wells - Anticipations: Of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress upon Human life and Thought. 
Wow, another type of automobile suicide: “A young mother was killed by a driver who is believed to have deliberately crashed into her car to try to end his own life.
The man escaped with a broken leg but Alison Langton died at the scene.”
Forget suicide. Genocide is the ticket that will help us "REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT." And Jules isn't the least bit squeamish about it either. Watch the video.
You oughta move your last two comments up into the current blog or maybe I'll just send readers back here with a comment. :~) -Rudi
