145 stranded pilot whales die in New Zealand
11-24-18, On Stewart Island in the extreme south of New Zealand, officials said as many as 145 pilot whales have died after becoming stranded on a remote beach. Pilot whales, also called long-finned pilot whale, are a specimen with a bulging forehead and a robust body. Experts said the reason for their deaths is a mystery.
Wikipedia: The size of the Long Finned Pilot Whale is appx 21 feet. It's weight is appx 2800 pounds; lifespan is appx 45 years in males and 60 years in females. Pilot Whales were created with sexual dimorphism [the two sexes of the same species exhibit different characteristics beyond the differences in their sexual organs].

Angels: God’s Secret Agents
“The Apostle Peter was imprisoned and was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.”
11-29-18, I am sharing this excerpt from Billy Graham’s 1975 book as it is a faith building report of instances of recorded and documented events where the Lord sent His holy angels to protect His chosen.
Chapter 1: Billy Graham, 1975: “I did this biblical study on angels believing this subject is very relevant. As I searched libraries and bookstores, I was surprised to find many volumes on Satan … who is a fallen angel … but nothing on God’s good angels. Although I did find that John Calvin said, “Angels are the dispensers and administrators of the divine beneficence toward us. They regard our safety, undertake our defense, direct our ways and exercise a constant solicitude that no evil befall us.”
It is my prayer that God will use this book to bring comfort to the sick and the dying; to bring encouragement to those who are under the pressures of everyday living; to bring guidance to those who are frustrated by the events of our generation.
A missionary in China shared the truths of the Lord Jesus with an illiterate Chinese mother who had never seen a Bible. The missionary told her that ‘Jesus is able to help you when you’re in trouble.’ There came a time when the woman was about to be attacked by a tiger. In her fear she cried out, ‘Oh Jesus, help me!’ The ferocious beast, instead of attacking suddenly turned and ran away! Was there an angel standing by?
Another event as recorded in Readers Digest happened to a celebrated Philadelphia neurologist, Dr. S. W. Mitchell. He had gone to bed after a very tiring day when suddenly he was awakened by a deeply upset little girl knocking on his door who asked him to come with her as her mother was very sick. It was a cold and snowy night but the doctor dressed and followed her. Arriving at the home of the mother who was desperately ill with Pneumonia … he arranged for her care and complimented the woman for the persistence and intelligence of her young daughter. The woman responded, “My daughter died a month ago.”
The book has many many more instances where angels came to the rescue. Based on scripture about Daniel in lion’s den where an angel shut their mouths; we can rightly conclude that angels were/are often used to save God’s anointed, like David from the unicorns. [Yes, unicorns are mentioned in scripture.] Psalm 22:19-21; Daniel 6:22
"For God will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;"
Psalm 103:20 "Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word."
Matthew 18:10 10
Jesus about children: "See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven."
Luke 15:10 10 "In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

Married Man Justin Bieber Says He Wants To Be More Like the Lord Jesus
In September 2018, in a hush hush wedding, the Canadian pop singer, 24, married model 22 yr old Hailey Baldwin. He told his 102 million Instagram followers that Thursday's U.S. Thanksgiving holiday was the first he had hosted; his post:
"First thanksgiving as a married man, first time hosting thanksgiving. Relationships are hard and love isn't always easy but thank you Jesus for showing me how! Everyday is a learning process, trying to be more like him, patient, kind, selfless, boy I got a long way! But God's grace is sufficient!" [2 Corinthians 12:9]
Bieber and Baldwin both attend the evangelical Hillsong Church, which was founded in Australia in 1983 and now has branches worldwide with a big youth following.
11-26-18, Obama won the election, General Motors got its way and
U.S. taxpayers got stuck with an $11.2 billion bill to keep the company alive. The auto industry bailout of GM and Chrysler cost $80 billion. It's mostly been recovered. Obama used the take-over to set new auto efficiency standards. That improved air quality and forced U.S. automakers to be more competitive against Japanese and German firms. Today’s [11-26-18] GM's announcement that it will close plants in Detroit laying off 14,700 workers is a hard pill to swallow. More Ford Info here
THE UNFORGIVABLE SIN – BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT
Jesus said, “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. Vs 28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 9 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.”
11-26-18, Glen Mills, South Africa – The subject of the Unforgivable Sin has vexed many; not surprising considering the finality and severity of the statement. 2 Tim 3:16 says that ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God. Therefore, the important fact is that all scripture stands on its own.
From the ‘The Full Life Study Bible’ (See Matthew 12:31; Mark 3:29 and Luke 12:10) I quote the note as the basis for my view: “Blasphemy against the Spirit is the continual and deliberate rejection of the Holy Spirit’s witness to Christ, to His word and to His convicting work against sin.” The process leading to blasphemy begins by grieving the Spirit. This leads to putting out His fire, then the hardening of the heart, which then leads to labeling good as evil. When this happens the Spirit will no longer strive to lead that person to repentance.”
While the comments themselves are valid, in terms of the total teaching of scripture, these references should not be taken as their basis. Somebody has said that one should always follow the 20/20 rule [read twenty verses behind and twenty verses forward] when reading and studying God’s Word. In the context of Matthew 12:21; Mark 3:28-29; Luke 12:10 - Jesus is driving out an evil spirit. The Pharisees, because of their jealousy at not being able to do the same, accused Jesus of driving out the evil spirit by the power of a greater evil spirit, i.e. Beelzebub [2 Kings 1:2-3, 6, 16]. The point is that they were not acknowledging that Jesus was doing this by the power of the Holy Spirit.
God will tolerate what we perceive as 'an entity’ to be disobeyed, rebuked and even blasphemed, as with Jesus, but when it comes to His very nature, the ESSENCE of Who He is... HIS SPIRIT; He makes it very clear that He will NOT forgive blaspheming HIS HOLY SPIRIT, not in this life or the life to come.
Conclusion: Those who may feel they've committed the ‘unforgivable sin’, be at rest because the very fact that you are asking the question makes it almost certain that you have not.
DEEP STATE CANCER THRIVES UNCHECKED AT FEDERAL LEVELS
The idea that a "Deep State" exists inside the federal government rose to prominence during the first 100 days of President Trump's administration. An ABC News/Washington Post poll of 2017 showed that nearly half the people in America believe a Deep State — defined as “military, intelligence and government officials who try to secretly manipulate government policy” — is working behind the facade of the constitutional U.S. government.
Although to many a reference to the Deep State is of recent origin, this is far from new. Upon realizing the special status of people who are mainly anonymous and for whom it is nearly impossible to fire, it becomes inevitable that a cancer would metastasize in the shadows, free from the sunshine’s power as a disinfectant.
In the 1930's a shadow government consisting of Socialists and Communists, loyalists to the Soviet Union, sprung into existence. Unfortunately, unlike the current version, it worked in concert with President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The most prominent and notorious of them was Alger Hiss, FDR's fair-haired boy, who played a central role at the Yalta Conference, where FDR, over Churchill’s strenuous objections, handed Eastern Europe over to Stalin, and assisted in the creation of the globalists’ dream of the United Nations. [..snip]
May President Trump continue to follow what Coolidge said when pushing back in his administration: “I have found it advisable not to give too much heed to what people say when I am trying to accomplish something of consequence. Invariably they proclaim it can’t be done. I deem that the very best time to make the effort.”
THE WORLD'S OLDEST PERSON HAS PASSED AWAY, April 15, 2017
Emma Morano was 117 years of age. She was born November 29, 1899 in Civiasco, Vercelli, Italy. She was officially the last living person born in the 1800s
Emma Morano lived alone in two room apartment, a caregiver came daily to prepare her meals consisting of eggs [now down to two], biscuits, ground meat, soupy pasta and a banana. The few times she has been ill, she has “refused to set foot in a hospital.” Her doctor of 27 years, Carlo Bava, said she rarely ate vegetables or fruit.
She enjoyed chocolate sometimes and also daily drank a glass of homemade grappa. Grappa is an alcoholic drink [30+% alcohol] whose main ingredient is pomace consisting of the grape skins, seeds and stalks that are left over from the wine making process.
'Good genes and eggs'
Ms Morano believed her longevity was partly down to genetics: her mother reached 91 and of her seven sibling she had several sisters who also reached 100. More here
Jesus said, "I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven."
3-30-06, Henry Morris PhD -- After His arrest, "the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put Him to death; and found none" (Mark 14:55). Then they got their sought-after witness from Jesus Himself when the high priest asked Him:
"Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?" (Mark 14:61),
and it only took two words from Him. "I Am!"
As a matter of fact, this was not the first time He had thus identified Himself as the self-existent, eternal God. On an earlier occasion in Jerusalem, He had told the Pharisees: "I am the light of the world," and then, "I am from above: . . . I am not of this world. . . . If ye believe not that I am, ye shall die in your sins" (John 8:12,23-24; the "He" in verse 24 is not in the Greek original).
He made this especially clear a few minutes later when He asserted: "Before Abraham was, I am" (John 8:58). But when He finally made this wonderfully truthful claim in the presence of the council, "they all condemned Him to be guilty of death" (Mark 14:64). He had committed the capital crime of blasphemy in their opinion, by claiming to be God.
"I am" is, in fact, the very name of God. When Moses, at the burning bush, was called by God to deliver the Israelites from slavery, God said His name was "I AM THAT I AM" (Exodus 3:14). The name Jehovah (or Yahweh), the most frequently used name of the Lord in the Old Testament, is essentially this name.
One can count at least 196 "I am" claims of God in Christ ("I am the way, the truth, and the life," for example -- John 14:6) in the Bible. Truly our Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal, self-existent God, "Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last" (Revelation 22:13). Source

Number Eleven In Revelation

- Revelation 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

- Revelation 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
- Revelation 7:11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
- Revelation 8:11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
- Revelation 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
- Revelation 10:11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
- Revelation 11:11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. [Two witnesses? Many interpret this mystery as the Church and Israel | here ]
- Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
- Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
- Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
- Revelation 15 [only 8 verses, no #11]
- Revelation 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
- Revelation 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
- Revelation 18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
- Revelation 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
- Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
- Revelation 21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
- Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
I'm hoping some brother or sister in Christ who is a more learned Bible scholar than I am, who may see significance in this report. I am only seeing interesting facts, causing me to wonder; but so far, I cannot come up with a logical conclusion.
