Analysis: FlatU. S. jobs data
signal weakest recovery in decades. WASHINGTON (AP) - The job market is
defying history. A dismal June employment report shows that employers are
adding nowhere near as many jobs as they normally do this long after a
recession has ended. Unemployment has climbed for three straight months and is
now at 9.2 percent. There's no precedent, in data going back to 1948, for such
a high rate two years into what economists say is a recovery. The economy added
just 18,000 jobs in June.

How the Bubble Destroyed the Middle Class.Sluggish growth is no
mystery: No one has any money. A lot of people say they are deeply puzzled
by the slow recovery in the U.S.
economy. They look at the 9+% unemployment rate and the mediocre growth in
national output, and they scratch their heads and wonder: Where is the boom that
inevitably follows a deep bust, such as we experienced in 2008 and 2009? But
there is no mystery. What other result would you expect from the financial ruin
of the once-great American middle class? And make no mistake, the middle class
has been ruined: Its wealth has been decimated, its income isn't even keeping
pace with inflation, and its faith in the American economy has been shattered.
In the past the middle class grew richer each year, grew more comfortable, and
enjoyed a higher living standard. It was real progress in material terms. But
that progress has been halted and even reversed. In some respects, the middle
class has made no progress in a generation, or two.
This isn't just a sad story about a few losers. The prosperity of the middle
class has been the chief engine of growth in the economy for a century or more.
But now our mass market is no longer growing. How could it? The middle class
doesn't have any money. If losing half your meager life savings weren't bad
enough, the middle class has also been falling behind in terms of income for
decades. Families in the middle make most of their money the old-fashioned way:
Working their fingers to the bone for 40 years for wages and a modest pension.
Jacob's House Comment,
The reason middle class Americans and their children are having problems and troubles, is because they have deserted and defected from the Living God in their midst. They have become accustomed to debt-ridden life-styles that cannot profit them. They are now also involved in idolatrous gadget driven life-styles of entertainment and lascivious practices that have corrupted them to the point of death. These people have forgotten God's righteous, profitable, and virtuous ways. Instead, they have become involved in entertaining themselves at all costs, and in self-gratification.
Therefore, righteousness and true wisdom cannot be found in them anymore. Instead, the curse is rampant among them now, and the devil is controlling their thoughts and their minds with his crafty ways.
America, and the other nations of this world are now on the precipice of trouble, travail, and complete destruction. Violence and decay can be seen in every nation today that has forsaken God and His Son, Jesus. Only the true and devoted children of God and His Son, Jesus, will escape the woe, trouble, and travail, which is still to come. They will be saved by their Creator when He brings them into His presence at the start of His new day.

More diseases are on the way which will affect many people

and cure because of the fact God will change and rearrange the structure of
their DNA. Therefore, the sins and the
wickedness of this world will be judged by God at His judgment seat in the
heavens above. This world will go
through great havoc and terror upon the people who have denied a Living God in

Cash crunch for cities, school districts may worsen. MIAMI
(Reuters) - Local governments across America

2011's state fiscal difficulties dwindle. There's a credit risk rotation away from the states,
down to local governments. America's nearly 90,000 counties, cities, public
school districts and other local governments rely heavily on property taxes and aid from state governments
to provide essential services, such as fire protection and education. But the
housing downturn is savaging property tax revenues, and state legislators
looking to balance their own budgets in a slow national economic recovery are
often cutting aid to cities and towns.

security forces whose whereabouts are now unknown.
Jacob’s House Comment,
The 3,000 missing people in Syria fulfills Bible prophecy where it says one will be
taken away and one will be left behind.
God is also showing that now He is recompensing the Arabs in this area
of the world because of their refusal to honor Israel nearby. This type of genocide going on in Syria today is fascist in nature. It is the same thing that happened to the
Jewish people when the Germans in World War II, decided to round them up from
their own homes and put them in concentration camps. They were put there because of jealousy and
envy, and because of their own Godly beliefs.
Now the same thing is happening all over again in the Arab world where
Arabs are being rounded up because of their ideas and beliefs that do not fit in
with what the rulers in their countries desire.
God is also showing that He can reprimand and destroy any country that
does not want to honor His chosen people of yesterday and today.

Blood-Red Texas Lake a Sign of the End Times? A man-made lake in Texas
has almost entirely dried up but what's catching attention is the deep,

entirely dry. The water that is left is stagnant, full of dead fish, and a
deep, opaque red. Texas is experiencing major drought this summer,
with 75 percent of the state's area in an "exceptional" drought, the
highest level, according to the National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC). The
state had hoped for some relief from Tropical Storm Don last week, but the
system fizzled and brought only an inch or two of rain to areas near the coast.
Jacob's House Comment,
This is definitely a sign and wonder from God that the end of this current filthy and sinful earth age is near. God is showing this world that He can turn water to blood at any time the way He did with Pharaoh and Egypt long ago. God is showing this world that other plagues from Him are coming down upon this cursed world today, because the people in many nations now worship the beast and give homage to the current pharaoh that God now despises in this world.

oil giant says China
spill worse than thought. A massive oil
spill off northeast China may

it was still estimating the amount of oil that has escaped from the leak, which
first came to light a month ago, and had uncovered evidence it may have been
larger than it thought. The spill, which has polluted a sea area measuring
1,200 square kilometres, (460 square miles) according to the latest SOA
figures, was kept secret by authorities for several weeks before being made
public last month. It had previously affected a much larger area of more than
4,000 square kilometres of ocean, according to figures provided by the
government agency, which gave no explanation for the apparent contradiction.
Wall Street and global markets tumble on debt fears.
Wall Street had its worst day for almost three years as shares tumbled on fears
about the eurozone debt crisis and the US

biggest one-day fall for the Dow since October 2008. Earlier, European Commission President Jose
Manuel Barroso warned that the sovereign debt crisis was spreading. Also in New
York, the S&P 500 index fell 4.8% and the
tech-rich Nasdaq was more than 5% lower. Meanwhile, Frankfurt's

Twitter conversations that people are being asked to meet again down in Tottenham so we are all concerned but
clearly we will be much better prepared this evening," Richard Barnes,
London's Deputy Mayor, told BBC TV. Police Commander Adrian Hanstock told
Reuters there was "a lot of ill-informed and inaccurate speculation on

Jacob’s House Comment,
Poor reasoning power abounds all over this world today. Consumption and confusion are evident in many
rulers and prominent governors in many nations now. They are unable to see when they are making
grave mistakes for their nations and leading the people in them into
captivity. They are unable to know that
confusion from the devil of this world abounds, and is leading their nations
down into the pit of despair.
Therefore, shall the US and Europe continue to decline for
their reluctance to have the Lord God and His Son, Jesus, as the centerpiece of
their nations today. They will go into
decline with violence, disorder, travail, trouble, and continued polarization,
until the second coming of our Lord Jesus, is revealed on this earth.
Concerned about the Consumer? Look at What China
Wants. Investors concerned about a potential US “Double Dip” ought to focus
where the growth is: luxury brands with exposure in China.
One of the brightest candidates with great potential is Apple. Luxury good demand in Asia Pacific generally,
specifically, is driving revenues and profits of some of the world’s splashiest
brands. The growth can be expected to continue, if only due to the sheer
size of the growing middle class in China.
In 2010, China
surpassed the US
as the largest car market in the world. In 2009, the size of the middle
class in the US
was 338M the size of the middle class in the Asia Pacific was 525M. By
2020, the US middle class will be roughly the same size while Asia Pacific’s
middle class will be the largest with over 3 times the size at 1.740B (54% of
global share) with the greatest purchasing power.

National child welfare survey examines recession. A national study on
child well-being to be published Wednesday found that child poverty increased
in 38 states from 2000 to 2009. As a result, 14.7 million children, 20 percent,
were poor in 2009. That represents a 2.5 million increase from 2000, when 17
percent of the nation's youth lived in low-income homes. In the foundation's
first examination of the impact of the recession on the nation's children, the
researchers concluded that low-income children will likely suffer academically,
economically and socially long after their parents have recovered.

‘Brain-eating amoeba’ claims second U.S.
victim this month.Christian Strickland, a 9-year-old from Henrico
County in Virginia
contracted an infection after visiting a fishing camp in his state. He died of
meningitis on August 5. This week, health department officials confirmed that
the deadly amoeba--officially known as "Naegleria fowleri"--was to
blame. Usually found in warm, stagnant water in freshwater lakes, ponds, and
rivers, the parasite "enters the nasal passages ... and migrates to the
olfactory nerves, eventually invading the brain," according to the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention. It almost always causes meningitis.
Symptoms include fever, nausea, stiff neck and a frontal headache. Thirty-two
infections of the parasite were reported in the U.S.
between 2001 and 2010, CDC spokeswoman Christine Pearson told The Lookout,
adding that infections are almost always deadly.
Jacob's House Comment,
The reports of this fatal parasite in the fresh water of a lake in the United States is not by chance. God is showing this world through this new and deadly parasite that the water in this lake and in other lakes in the US are now polluted beyond measure. They are polluted because of sin and iniquity being poured into them from nearby defiled idolatrous towns.

same time, the cost doubled to reach $68 billion in 2010 - more than a third of
the amount the U.S. government received in
corporate income tax last year.
Jacob's House Comment,
The United States can no longer claim it is the bread basket cornucopia of the world. The United States cannot even feed its own people properly, or excel as a nation anymore because they have left their true love behind. They have also left their Christian heritage, its ethics, and its restraints behind. The United States has defied God's Ten Commandments and His implicit instructions to the leaders there, released to this nation by the founding fathers in God's will for all mankind. Therefore, the United States is in a serious ongoing decline. It is suffering with the curse of continued shortages, starvation, water depletion, and troubling economic distress for the refusal of its leaders to obey the founding Father in heaven who created them, and made this country the premier one in the world.

Hurricane Irene pummels New
York amid fears of flooding. Ferocious
winds from Hurricane Irene have begun to hammer New York,
bringing torrential rain and the threat of flooding in the financial district. New
York City's public transport system has been closed
and the mayor said it was now too late for people to leave. Irene has already hit North
Carolina and Virginia,
causing damage and the deaths of at least eight people. The worst of the storm,
packing winds up to 75mph (120km/h), is due to hit New
Street and the labyrinth of cables and pipes beneath the nerve center of global
finance were at risk from cascading seawater. The storm pushed a 3 1/2-foot
surge of water into New York Harbor,
and forecasters said the peak could be twice as tall later in the morning.
Irene barely maintained hurricane strength, delivering winds of 75 mph, just
above the dividing line for a tropical storm. But it was massive and powerful,
forming a figure six that covered the Northeast. It sped up and was moving at
25 mph, twice as fast as the day before. The hurricane had already unloaded
more than a foot of water on North Carolina,
spun off tornadoes in Virginia, Maryland
and Delaware, and left 3 million
homes and businesses without power. Nine people were killed.
Jacob's House Comment,
The flooding being seen in New York and in the coastal areas of the United States now from this major hurricane are because of God's wrath and fury upon these areas near the coast for their past wickedness and murderous ways. A lot of innocent blood has been spilled along the coasts of these various states to secure the land for rich developers and evil tyrants to have their way . Therefore, God is now punishing the East Coast of the United States with floods and judgment to wash it clean of its wickedness and sins. Tens of thousands of innocent and poor people were killed in these coastal areas in order for the rich to acquire their land by evil and corrupt means.
Obama's Legacy: A Failed U.S.
Recovery & Double-Dip Recession. There will be no significant recovery
in the United States of America
while Barack Obama is President. The evidence is overwhelming:
everything Obama has tried to fuel a recovery (with his Democratic allies in
Congress) has failed. Statistics claiming jobs saved by the stimulus
package were mostly fiction, and cost American taxpayers about $275,000
each. Nearly 2-1/2 million fewer Americans have jobs than before the
stimulus. Barack Obama has been
President for 30 months. He spent the
first year obsessed with passing Obamacare, a program that doesn’t create jobs,
but might destroy a lot of them. He “bailed out” GM, but many believe
that his interference didn’t save GM; it merely cost taxpayers an extra $15-20
billion, and stole from legitimate investors to buy off the UAW. His
broken campaign promises are too numerous to list. At some point, his
statute of limitations on blaming Bush runs out. The latest joke is that
the White House is that named the location of East Coast earthquake near
DC “Bush’s Fault.”

Christine Lagarde warned a threat of global recession remained and called for
coordinated policy action. She said this should include the mandatory
recapitalisation of European banks.
Mosquitoes 'disappearing' in some parts of Africa,
while researchers say mosquitoes are also disappearing from areas with few
controls. Scientists are uncertain if mosquitoes are being eradicated or
whether they will return with renewed vigor. Data from countries such as Tanzania,
Kenya and Zambia
all indicate that the incidence of malaria is dropping fast. One possibility
for the reduction in numbers is climate change and extreme rainfall. There may
also be a disease among the mosquitoes, a fungi or a virus, or they're may have
been some environmental changes in some communities that have resulted in a
drop in the number of mosquitoes"

A major cholera pandemic has spread in at least three waves from a single
global source: the Bay of Bengal. It
is not yet clear why the Bay of Bengal is at the centre
of the pandemic, though cholera bacteria exist naturally within some marine
ecosystems. The local ecology, climate, and the presence of large river deltas are
likely to be key factors in its presence there. The results show several cases
of cholera suddenly jumping between continents, suggesting that it was spread
by passengers on long-haul flights.
"I think that's the only possible explanation. Our data show that
this has happened, for example from Angola
to South America.
"Many people can have cholera with no symptoms, so they transmit it

Irene, the hurricane that weakened to a tropical

dead in suicide bomb in Iraq mosque. BAGHDAD (AP) -
A suicide bomber blew himself up inside Baghdad's largest Sunni mosque Sunday
night, killing 29 people during prayers, a shocking strike on a place of
worship similar to the one that brought Iraq to the brink of civil
war five years ago.
After Irene, a US
political storm brews over aid. In a prelude to ugly autumn budget fights,
the White House and its Republican foes battled Wednesday over whether disaster
relief for Hurricane Irene's victims must be offset by spending cuts elsewhere.
The feud, the latest in a running US
political war over the role of government, flared up even as both sides agreed
it was too early to set a price tag on rebuilding in the wake of the powerful
storm and a preceding earthquake.

Fires burn dozens of homes in Texas,
CITY (AP) - Wildfires fueled by extremely dry
conditions and strong winds destroyed dozens of homes in Oklahoma
City and North Texas on Tuesday

Space debris: Time to clean up the sky. The US
National Research Council's report on space debris is
not the first of its kind. The opinion
expressed is always the same: the problem is inescapable and it's getting
worse. The tone of concern is being ratcheted up. There is now a wild jungle of debris overhead
- everything from old rocket stages that continue to loop around the Earth
decades after they were launched, to the flecks of paint that have lifted off
once shiny space vehicles and floated off into the distance. It is the legacy of more than half a century
of space activity. Today, it is said there are more than 22,000 pieces of
debris actively being tracked. These are
just the big, easy-to-see items, however. Moving around unseen are an estimated
500,000 particles ranging in size between 1-10cm across, and perhaps tens of
millions of other particles smaller than 1cm.
Jacob's House Comment,
God is punishing many nations on this earth today for the debris they are leaving in God's spatial realm above this earth. The Lord God does not want us polluting His spatial realm in any way. He does not want us defiling the spatial majesty He covets and adores. Therefore, God is upset with many nations today for the governors and rulers in them trying to be like gods themselves. He is punishing their nations with travail, trouble, and economic distress for their continued advancement to seek out the riches and resources they might be able to exploit on other planets God has made. God is also unhappy with the pollution these people have created in His spatial and heavenly realm. Therefore, this punishment from God will continue at a rapid pace until these nations are made into desolate heaps. For they continue to refuse His timely words and instructions from on high in His spiritual realm of today.

5 Grocery Food Staples That Are Going Up In Price. According to the
Bureau of Labor Statistic's most recent consumer price index report, consumers saw a price increase of 2.8% during
the the last yearly period for food bought at grocery stores.
This "food at home" component includes grocery staples such as milk,
bread, vegetables and meat. World economic growth, rising crude oil
prices, shrinking stockpiles, strong commodity demand and severe
crop-destroying weather have created a perfect storm of sorts, resulting in
rising food costs worldwide. In fact, the global food price index, compiled
from price data for sugar, cereals, oils, meat and dairy products, recently
reached a new, all-time high. While almost every grocery store aisle is
affected by rising prices, a large part of the reason all comes down to two
commodities: wheat and corn. Both food staples have been hit hard for the past
two years - a combination of climate change, natural disasters and crop
has experienced severe drought for the past two years and had stopped exporting
wheat altogether to ensure enough of a domestic supply. They have resumed
limited exports as of July 2011 but supplies are still short. A disease called
wheat rust UG99 has wiped out crops across Africa
and is spreading to other wheat-producing countries at a rapid pace.

is ranked No. 2, followed by Sweden
Jacobs House comment;
The signs are all around for anyone who wants to see it that the U. S. is now suffering under God's curse today. The latest of these signs reflects the fact that the U. S. is no longer number one but is now ranked fifth in the world in competitiveness. She can no longer carry the millstones she has placed upon herself for leaving God and his Son, Jesus, many decades ago. She is also no longer the bread basket of this world either for her refusal to follow Gods instructive words to her in the early years of her enrichment walk with God and His glorious Son. Instead pain, turmoil, worry, fear, and trouble have come upon her coming from God on many levels for her evil, selfish, and destructive ways.

Jacob's House Comments,
God told His children of Israel not to mix with the heathens that were all around them of that day. God also told His children of Israel to avoid getting entangled with these heathens, and in many cases to burn down their villages, to destroy their cattle, their animals, and the warlike devices they used.
We have forgotten these words from God that He gave us in His Bible of old time. Instead, in many nations today like the US now import much of their vegetables and crops from the other heathen nations that are now under God's curse. Some of these nations are involved in worshiping devils and demonic spirits. US farmers also have changed God's DNA on many of their crops, and not given the land they farm the rest it needs every seven years. This has depleted the nutrients and strength of the soil, and allowed various diseases and insects to overtake the food supply.
Therefore, because of the sinful ideas being espoused today by many people who do not know their Creator, their food supply is now poisoned, tainted, and unfit to eat. Trading with these defiled heathens which God has cursed has made the food supply rotten and disfigured beyond measure. They should have listened to God's words which told them to give their land a rest every seven years and not pollute it with any heathen blood or tears.

Long road from farm to fork worsens food outbreaks. WASHINGTON (AP) -
Outbreaks of listeria and other serious illnesses linked to tainted food are
becoming more common, partly because much of what we eat takes a long and
winding road from farm to fork. A cantaloupe grown on a Colorado field may make four or five stops before it
reaches the dinner table. There's the packing house where it's cleaned and
packaged, then the distributor. A processor may cut or bag the fruit. The
retail distribution center is where the melons are sent out to various stores.
Finally it's stacked on display at the grocery store. Imported fruits and
vegetables have an even longer journey. The Colorado
cantaloupe crop that's linked to 84 illnesses and as many as 17 deaths in 19
states has traveled so far and wide that producer Jensen Farms doesn't even know exactly where
their fruit ended up.
Global markets suffer big quarterly falls. Economists say worries
over the ability of eurozone countries to pay their debts are sparking concerns

concerns that a Greek default going wider into something more serious in terms
of an Italian default, for example, that would leave banking sectors under-capitalised

Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank both lost more than 30% in value since the end of

Nestle chief warns of new food riots.The head of the world's biggest
food company Nestle said on Friday
that rising food prices have created
conditions "similar" to 2008 when hunger riots took place in many
countries. "The situation is similar (to 2008). This has become the new
reality," the Swiss giant's chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe told the Salzburger Nachrichten daily in his native Austria
in an interview. "We have reached a level of food prices that is
substantially higher than before. It will likely settle down at this
level."If you live in a developing country and spend 80 percent of your
income on food then of course you are going to feel it more than here (in Europe)
where it is maybe eight percent." In 2008, the price of cereals reached
historic levels, provoking a food crisis and riots in a number of African
countries, as well as in Haiti
and the Philippines.
Food price inflation this year is seen as having contributed to the "Arab
Spring" unrest in north Africa and the Middle East
and there are fears of fresh unrest elsewhere.
Jacob's House Comment,
What these rulers and leaders do not know or understand is the food shortages they are having in their nations are being caused by their own heathen thinking patterns and their foolish rulings. Their problems are also being caused by them allowing many mingled heathens and outcasts to come into their nations to defile and strip their once profitable land. Therefore, their food stocks of wholesome grains are being destroyed from within. Now most of their food is full of vomit and worthless to eat because the DNA in it has been changed with disastrous results.
God is already punishing these nations for their unruly, stiff-necked, idolatrous, and sorcery-filled ways. He is punishing them with disastrous weather patterns including flooding and burning for the fact they have not taken Him seriously and taken care of His gardens and His wondrous creatures and plants here. These things will continue from God until our beloved Jesus steps upon this earth for a second time.

Flood barriers will determine Thai capital's fate. RANGSIT, Thailand
(AP) - Somjai Tapientong lives on one side of a wall of white sandbags, her apartment perched precariously

side, a foaming brown river gushes through a canal diverting water around the
Thai capital, just to the south. Whether floodwaters breach fortified barriers
like these this weekend will determine whether Bangkok
will be swamped or spared. On Saturday, the giant metropolis of glass-walled

that question. Despite the panic that has engulfed the city of 9 million people

Hair attacks force Ohio
Amish to seek outside help. CARROLLTON, Ohio
(AP) - Leaders within Ohio's
Amish community faced a soul-searching
question after what they say were hair-cutting attacks against several
followers of their faith. Should they cooperate with authorities or adhere to their beliefs of
forgiving one another and keeping disputes private? In the end, church bishops
decided to seek help from the outside. Five men were arrested and accused of
cutting the hair of several people, offensive acts to the Amish, who believe
the Bible instructs women to let their hair grow long and men to grow beards

protesters were arrested for allegedly violating a city ordinance by being in

police said. The protest was one of many in a global day of demonstrations on
Saturday that started in Asia and Europe and

Rome cleans up devastation, asks why it happened. ROME
(Reuters) - Workers cleaned up the wreckage from some of Rome's worst riots
in years on Sunday and citizens asked why their city was the only one in which
global demonstrations turned violent. It was a question many Italians were
asking as workmen swept up broken glass, sandblasted graffiti off church walls,
repaired broken statues, replaced shattered bank windows and ATM machines and
towed away the burned-out shells of cars. Hundreds of hooded, masked protesters
rampaged through the capital on Saturday during a larger peaceful protest
against elites blamed for an economic crisis. Clashes with police raged for at
least six hours. Apart from the material damage, estimated by merchants' groups
at more than a million euros.

Moon Base to Be Massive Lunar Land Grab? There is at least one person who
believes that ownership of the moon could go to China once the country's efforts to actualize

national direction, and proposed timeline for reaching the moon and
constructing a lunar base will place the Asian nation in an optimum position to

As we have stated before many times on this website in the past, this world's economic troubles, troubles, and woes will not go away until the second coming of Jesus is realized. Instead, the troubles and problems will increase for many nations, as polarization between the young and the old, the rich and the poor, and the have and the have-nots, increases and becomes quite deadly in its intent. The devil will use the problems confronting many mingled people to bring about violence and destruction all over this world. This violence and destruction will not have a happy ending, or be resolved, until our God resurrects and revives His beloved ones in His eternal and glorious new day and order.

rethinks next haul after crash with bees. SALT LAKE CITY (AP)
- Truck driver Louis Holst has never
been scared of bees, but he's
rethinking his next long-haul load a day after being swarmed by 25 million of
the stinging insects. Holst and his
wife, Tammie, picked up 460 bee hives in South
Dakota and were about 36 hours into
their drive Sunday night when he hit a sharp bend in a construction zone on
Interstate 15 in southern Utah. The
twist in the road toppled his trailer and sent the bees into a frenzy.
"First responders came and drug me and my wife through the front
window," Holst said Monday.
"Then we panicked." Swarmed by bees on the highway, Holst said he
ripped off his shirt and began swatting the air. His wife ran. "We just
started swinging our clothes," he said. "They stung her all up and
down her neck."
Rapidly Inflating Volcano Creates Growing Mystery. Uturuncu is a nearly 20,000-foot-high (6,000
meters) volcano in southwest Bolivia.
Scientists recently discovered the volcano is inflating with astonishing speed. Researchers realized about five
years ago that the area below and around Uturuncu is steadily rising — blowing
up like a giant balloon under a wide disc of land some 43 miles (70 kilometers)
across. Satellite data revealed the region was inflating by 1 to 2 centimeters
(less than an inch) per year and had been doing so for at least 20 years, when
satellite observations began. "It's one of the fastest uplifting volcanic areas on Earth," de Silva
told OurAmazingPlanet."What we're trying to do is understand why there is
this rapid inflation, and from there we'll try to understand what it's going to
lead to." The peak is perched like a party hat at the center of the
inflating area. "It's very circular. It's like a big bull's-eye,"
said Jonathan Perkins, a graduate
student at the University of California,
Santa Cruz. Scientists figured out
from the inflation rate that the pocket of magma beneath the volcano was growing by about 27 cubic feet (1 cubic meter) per

Jacob's House Comment,
The polluting of God's gardens and vineyards here on this earth by many people today is causing God to release His wrath and fury upon them and upon this world as never before. God's wrath and fury is causing many nations, and the rulers, governors, and people in them to be exposed to trouble, grief, and travail that they cannot understand or escape from.
What these governors, rulers, and people in these nations do not understand is the old order here is breaking down by God's words of authority upon it. Man is losing his preeminence as a dominate force here, and he is giving his power base back to the Creator who made him.
Therefore, though many rulers, governors, and people in nations today cannot see what is happening to them, or hear what God is saying to them now, God's faithful and adoring children can tell something has decidedly changed for them recently. They know the power and might of their God, and the dominate heavenly force He can wield in this world today, as He did in times past.
Some of them even know that as it says in Joel, God's new day of power based glory, clouds of darkness, and judgment is upon them. They know this new day is being formed by God while He is destroying the old corrupt one that is no longer desired or needed anymore.
Therefore, a new day and glorious time from God will soon be upon this world when our Creator and His Son, Jesus, become the dominating force here for the next thousand years and beyond. Soon God will restore His faithful and devoted children to perfection, though the rest of this corrupt and evil world of today, will be doomed to perish and die out in the next few seasons of time.
This new day from God is fast approaching, and will mean the end of the devil's reign here in the next few years. For soon all evil, sin, usury, and greed will fade away when God and His Son, Jesus, rule this world forever, with their beloved, saints, witnesses, and servants of the most high.

Assad predicts disaster if West meddles in Syria.
AMMAN (Reuters) - Western powers would cause an "earthquake" in
the Middle East if they intervened in Syria,
President Bashar al-Assad said in an
interview published on Sunday, after protesters demanded outside protection
from a crackdown that has killed 3,000 people. Syria,
as Assad noted in his interview with Britain's
Sunday Telegraph, sits at the heart of the volatile Middle East,
where it borders Israel,
Iraq and Jordan.
"It is the faultline, and if you play with the ground, you will cause an
earthquake," he said. "Do you want to see another Afghanistan,
or tens of Afghanistans?"
Assad's remarks signal determination to hang onto power against a popular
uprising that repression has failed to crush. Mass protests have also failed to
dislodge him, creating an unstable stalemate, which could perhaps be upset by
the impact of Western sanctions or any surge in army and police defections.

Snow smacks Northeast; power could be out for days. SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (AP)
-Millions of people from Maine to Maryland were without power as an
unseasonably early storm dumped heavy, wet snow over the weekend on a region
more used to gaping at leaves in October than shoveling snow. The snow was due
to stop falling in New England late Sunday, but it could
be days before many of the 2.7 million without electricity see it restored,
officials warned. At least three deaths were blamed on the weather, and states
of emergency were declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and
parts of New York.
The storm worsened as it moved north, and communities in western Massachusetts were
among the hardest hit. Snowfall totals topped 27 inches in Plainfield,
and nearby Windsor had gotten 26
inches by early Sunday.

Jacob's House will come back in the next few weeks with current events that glorify and honor the power and might of our Lord God and His Son, Jesus.
November 27, 2011
Jacob's House Comment on Current Events now going on.
the new day of our Lord God approaches we are seeing the end of this earth age
accelerating. We are seeing violence,
disruptions, and burdensome millstones multiplying upon the defiled people and
rulers of many nations today. Many of
these nations are in trouble because they have refused to obey the Commandments
and statues of the Creator of this world.
They are now unable to escape the debts they have acquired in record
numbers to keep their corrupt nations afloat.
heathen people in these corrupt nations today are suffering with famine,
disease, violence, and pestilence at an ever increasing rate. These things have all been brought about
because of their refusal today to respect God as their Creator and
rulers and people of these nations today have also refused to acknowledge God’s
only Son, Jesus, as their supreme Lord and Savior. Therefore, travail, woe, trouble, and disease
is upon them, and their gold and silver will not be able to deliver them in
this time of the day of the wrath of our Lord.
They shall not be able to satisfy their souls with peace, and they will
not be able to supply their needs because of the stumbling block of iniquity
God has placed before them today. Their
abominations and their detestable images will be their undoing, and they will
be a prey to the wicked one of this earth, who will be separating them and coming
for them soon.
God’s faithful children with cleansed souls, and with His Spirit in them, will
escape the wrath and anger from God which is still to come. They will use the ornaments and jewels they
have acquired on this earth to come into their Creator’s presence. They will be the new saints and ministers of
the coming Thousand Year Beautiful Reign of God and His Son, Jesus.
December 17, 2011
Jacob's House Comment
Our Creator's presence is being seen everywhere today. The death of this earth age is being seen by the wise and prudent children of God who have their eyes open and their spirit refreshed. For earthly kingdoms and nations are being dissolved and destroyed by God and His Son, Jesus. They are being taken down from the high and lofty idolatrous ways they have followed and pursued in recent years.
Therefore, soon God's new day will be here for His faithful and devoted children. Nevertheless, hundreds of millions of goats will be led to the slaughter before this blessed event from God and His Son can occur.
Jacob's House will continue current event comments in January 2012.
Have a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.
