The Day The Lights Go Out And The Trucks Stop Running

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Lights Out - Public DomainWhat would happen if some sort of major national emergency caused a massive transportation disruption that stopped trucks from running?  The next time you talk to a trucker, please thank them for their service, because without their hard work none of our lives would be possible.  In America today, very few of us live a truly independent lifestyle, and that means that we rely on the system to provide what we need.  Most of us take for granted that there will always be plenty of goods at Wal-Mart and at the grocery store whenever we need more “stuff”, and most of us never give a second thought to how all of that “stuff” gets there.  Well, the truth is that most of it is brought in by trucks, and if the trucks stopped running for some reason the entire country would devolve into chaos very rapidly.

Earlier today, I came across a quote from Alice Friedemann that detailed what we would be facing during a major national transportation disruption very nicely…

Within a week, in roughly this order, grocery stores would be out of dairy and other items that are delivered many times a day. And by the week, the shelves would be empty.

Hospitals, pharmacies, factories, and many other businesses also get several deliveries a day, and they’d be running out of stuff the first day.

And the second day, there’s be panic and hoarding. And restaurants, pharmacies would close. ATM’s would be out of money. Construction would stop. There’d be increasing layoffs. Increasing enormous amounts of trash not getting picked up, 685,000 tons a day. Service stations would be closed. Very few people would be working. And the livestock would start to be hungry from lack of feed deliveries.

Then within two weeks, clean water supplies would run out. Within four weeks to eight weeks, there wouldn’t be coal delivered to power plants and electricity would start shutting down. And when that happened, about a quarter of our pipelines use electricity, and so natural gas plants wouldn’t be fed natural gas and they’d start shutting down.

There is so much infrastructure that we take for granted that would suddenly become very vulnerable in this type of scenario.  There are countless numbers of workers out there that never get any glory that do the hard work of maintaining our nuclear power plants, our natural gas pipelines, our electrical grid, etc.  If they suddenly were not able to do their jobs, the consequences would be absolutely catastrophic.  The following comes from Tess Pennington

They rarely mention the dozens of nuclear power plants that litter the United States. If no one is there to operate them, how long before they melt down and bury millions of survivors under a radioactive cloud?

Then there are the 12,000 facilities around the country that store large quantities of toxic or flammable chemicals, and reside close to residential areas. 2,500 of these sites contain chemicals in quantities that, if a catastrophic accident were to occur, could affect 10,000 to 1 million people each. And let’s not forget the 2.5 million miles of oil and gas pipelines that can be found in every state. They suffer hundreds of leaks and ruptures every year, and are much more likely to explode when they aren’t maintained. That detail seems to be conveniently forgotten by post-apocalyptic films.

And finally, most post-apocalyptic movies will forget to mention what happens when there aren’t any functional fire departments. Aside from the obvious consequences, like whole neighborhoods routinely burning to the ground, who’s going to put out landfill fires that are occasionally radioactive?

For most Americans, a major national emergency of this magnitude may seem unimaginable right now.  But the truth is that it isn’t difficult to see how this kind of scenario could happen.  The Yellowstone supervolcano is becoming increasingly active, a single large asteroid could change all of our lives in a single moment, a crippling pandemic could bring normal life in America to a complete standstill, a terror attack involving weapons of mass destruction would spread panic and fear like wildfire, and a historic earthquake along the New Madrid fault, the Cascadia Subduction zone or any of the major faults in California could literally change the geography of our entire continent.

In addition, a massive EMP burst from a nuclear weapon or from the sun could fry our power grid and send us back into the stone age in a single moment.  This is something that I have written about extensively, and those that want to minimize this threat simply don’t know what they are talking about.

And an electromagnetic pulse is not even required to cause very serious problems with our electrical grid.  For instance, just consider what happened in Ukraine toward the end of last year

On December 23rd, 2015, the Prykarpattyaoblenergo power distribution station in Ukraine was hit by a carefully coordinated cyber-attack that was months in the making. The technicians lost control of their cursors as they watched hackers open breakers and take circuit after circuit offline, plunging 230,000 residents into darkness.

The hackers took backup power of the stations offline, plunging the electrical workers into darkness too, and worse yet, they even rewrote the low-level firmware that controls the electrical transformers. The attack had come after months of careful infiltration and planning by a dedicated team of elite cyber-warfare specialists and the result was devastating.

Even months later, technicians struggled to regain full capacity in the electrical grid due to the overwriting of firmware. With Ukrainian moves to nationalize power companies, it is possible that the powerful and Putin-connected Russian oligarchs who own large parts of Ukraine’s infrastructure were sending a message: we can shut down the system anytime we want.

The truth is that we are far more vulnerable than most of us would like to admit.

So what would you do if “normal life” suddenly came to an end and you no longer had access to food, water or power?

How would you and your family respond?

Hopefully you would continue to act in a civilized manner, but history has shown that many people would not.

Desperate people do desperate things, and it would only take a matter of days for some people to become violent

Before long, getting mugged or being a victim of some type of crime is as unpredictable and as common as a car accident. You’ll realize everyone in the neighborhood has now beefed up security on their homes. All your family, friends, and coworkers have experienced a mugging, carjacking, or worse.

You’ll have no choice but to accept this new way of life and count on basic safety measures (a form of passive denial) or further learn to defend yourself and remain in a constant state of alert (a very stressful state over time). It’s difficult emotionally, mentally, and physically to remain on high alert 24/7 for any length of time. Most people will revert to a form of passive denial until the next incident happens to them or a family member.

And even though things may seem relatively stable for the moment, concern about what is coming is one of the factors that has led an increasing number of Americans to arm themselves.  According to a brand new study from the Pew Research Center, 44 percent of all American homes now have a gun.  Just two years ago, a different study found that number was sitting at just 31 percent.

The way that we are living our lives right now will not last indefinitely.

At some point a major national emergency will strike, and when that day arrives we could suddenly be facing major power grid and transportation disruptions.

Are you prepared for that?

If not, you might want to do so while you still have time.

    All it would take is the lack of the ability to obtain things like fuel on credit. The trucking industry runs 99% on credit, So if for any reason the “card” readers stopped working ,that would be it. Also modern logistics is all run by computers, If the internet shut down that would also be it….

        Oh yes credit can run out when you do not pay your bills. With so much credit and loan debt now all they have to do is shut your credit down and repo your assets. If you do not pay you mortgage the banks and sheriff kick you out while the repo man takes the car. We have more debt now than in 2008 due to more poverty and lower paying jobs. Welfare has increased by 15 million while poverty has increased 8 million. Real inflation is increasing at an increasing rate. Products and services such as housing, education, healthcare(Obozo Care), food(grocery), restaurants, and utilities are going up at astronomical rates. They are not counted in the inflation rate which is another government scam. I recommend taking a basic Econ 101 course or finance course since you seem lost on these subjects. Always making excuses for your beloved loser Obozo the clown.

        • df NJ

          Congress has much more power than Obozo. Blame Congress for all that is wrong in our country.

            10 This is the account of Shem, Ham and Japheth, Noah’s sons, who themselves had sons after the flood.

            The Japhethites

            2 The sons[a] of Japheth:

            Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshek and Tiras.

            3 The sons of Gomer:

            Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah.

            4 The sons of Javan:

            Elishah, Tarshish, the Kittites and the Rodanites.[b] 5 (From these the maritime peoples spread out into their territories by their clans within their nations, each with its own language.)

            The Hamites

            6 The sons of Ham:

            Cush, Egypt, Put and Canaan.

            7 The sons of Cush:

            Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah and Sabteka.

            The sons of Raamah:

            Sheba and Dedan.

            I agree that congress is partly to blame but Obozo uses executive order and is to blame for the Obozo care, Dream Act, failed foreign policy, and energy policies to name a few. Blame who you must but liberal progressive ideologies whether from congress or the president are to blame for most of the catastrophic messes w are about to fce in this county.

            “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Shem!

            May Canaan be the slave of Shem.

            27 May God extend Japheth’s[b] territory;

            may Japheth live in the tents of Shem,

            and may Canaan be the slave of Japheth.”

            28 After the flood Noah lived 350 years. 29 Noah lived a total of 950 years, and then he died.

          • SnodtBlossom

            18 The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.) 19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the whole earth.

            20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded[a] to plant a vineyard. 21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked.

            24 When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, 25 he said,

            “Cursed be Canaan!

            The lowest of slaves

            will he be to his brothers.”

          You forget that others owe the USA and that we have infinite capability and ample resources.

          • Mark

            Boy are you delusional. First, the ones that owe the US will never pay back while the US never pursued those that we helped. Those were not loans but financial assistance so throw that theory nonsense out the door. Second, when we did help other countries the US had more assets and less debt. The opposite is true now. The US gov’t has more debt and approaching $20 trillion while there is more consumer debt due to decreasing wage growth the last 8 years. We do not produce or save and only consume since the US is a service economy. Service economies produce low paying part time jobs which never is a good thing. Consumer debt in this country has sky rocked not because people have money to spend but because they have less and are substituting the credit card and hoping to pay it off down the road which many won’t. If Hitlery has her way she will shut down the coal industry that Obozo has been trying to do the last 6 year and destroy on of the top exporting resources that this country has mined. This has already started and 1000s of jobs lost. Our trade deficit has grown substantially under Obozo so you can throw that other theory down the toilet too. You progressive liberal left wingers sure love to BS and divert the issues. Kind of like Hitlery. You are all in the same basket of half truths and many lies.

      The people running the credit card systems make money on each transaction. If no transactions are occurring the credit card CEOs are not making any money. This is why the ability to make a credit card transaction will never be offline for any length of time. Power means power. No transactions then no power. CEOs are greedy above all else.

        8 Cush was the father[c] of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10 The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Uruk, Akkad and Kalneh, in[d] Shinar.[e] 11 From that land he went to Assyria, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir,[f] Calah 12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah—which is the great city.

        13 Egypt was the father of

        the Ludites, Anamites, Lehabites, Naphtuhites, 14 Pathrusites, Kasluhites (from whom the Philistines came) and Caphtorites.

        15 Canaan was the father of

        Sidon his firstborn,[g] and of the Hittites, 16 Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, 17 Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, 18 Arvadites, Zemarites and Hamathites.

        Later the Canaanite clans scattered 19 and the borders of Canaan reached from Sidon toward Gerar as far as Gaza, and then toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboyim, as far as Lasha.

        20 These are the sons of Ham by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations.

    I am surprised that in America, hackers haven’t resorted to doing what the US- and the Russian- governments are purported to have done (ie corrupting firmware) on say a utilities oraganisation for ransom purposes. You could practise that anywhere and then run an orchestrated “assault”. One day it could be power distribution networks, the next water, gas or electricity followed by traffic control (air and land)

      “10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin[d] and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.[e] 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

      15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

        If you go back far enough, we are all son’s and daughter’s of the same two parents. We are all related.

        btw, if Adam and Eve were the first, does that mean the first few generations were forced to participate in incest? I made this comment once and someone said “there were other people mulling around at that time.” Yep, the best thing about being God is you never ever make any mistakes by definition!

        • ali

          I guess yes Incest was ok for the first few generations. In a way we all are still brothers and sisters.

          • df NJ

            Despite the inconsistencies and flaws, the essential message in the Bible that morality is important is still valid. But the implicit incest and being okay with slavery sure hurt it in regard to being literal truth. Of course, if you accept the Bible as metaphor not to be taken out of the historical context it was written it makes it more reasonable for anyone with a brain.

          • anonymous

            Technically, we’re still committing incest to this day. Maybe that’s why we are so messed up, all that genetic mutation going on.

        Snottly, the question now arises, will you die the second death? You were born still born spiritually to God, but the believe the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), and you will not have to die the second death. There is an old saying Born once, die twice. Born twice, perhaps die once. The Lord is coming, and so is Judgment. Short Version

      “2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

      2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

      Adam and Eve

      4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.

      5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth[a] and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, 6 but streams[b] came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. 7 Then the Lord God formed a man[c] from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

      8 Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. 9 The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”

      • sistersoldier

        I hope that you are studying while you are posting scripture. As you have so vividly pointed out in verse 8 of your comment regarding the “tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” but I find that missing from your scripture quotes is the serpent’s greater deception of Eve/Adam. He did not tell her to take from the tree of life first. Knowing that the truth was buried in the lie. If Eve had of taken of the tree of life first they surely would have been like the Gods and never would have died.

        Oh the slippery wiles of the devil! That is why the tree of life was taken to heaven where we read of it again in the book of Revelation. So maybe in God’s omniscience (all knowing) He knew that, yes, Satan would succeed in his plan to temp the woman, but He also knew that in the temptation the deceit would lead to the salvation of all. Eve missing the mark by falling for the wrong tree! By one man sin passed to all men and by One Man salvation came to all men. Oh the depth of God’s wisdom! For who knows the mind of God that we may counsel Him?

            A necessary broken record! It is meant to be repetitive so that those who read it will be without excuse on judgment day.

            6 When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with[a] humans forever, for they are mortal[b]; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

            4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

            5 The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

          13 Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is more than I can bear. 14 Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.”

          15 But the Lord said to him, “Not so[e]; anyone who kills Cain will suffer vengeance seven times over.” Then the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him. 16 So Cain went out from the Lord’s presence and lived in the land of Nod,[f] east of Eden.

          17 Cain made love to his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch. Cain was then building a city, and he named it after his son Enoch. 18 To Enoch was born Irad, and Irad was the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael was the father of Methushael, and Methushael was the father of Lamech.

        “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9

        • SnodtBlossom

          Adam[a] made love to his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain.[b] She said, “With the help of the Lord I have brought forth[c] a man.” 2 Later she gave birth to his brother Abel.

          Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil. 3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. 4 And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.

          6 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? 7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”

          8 Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.”[d] While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.

          9 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?”

          “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

          10 The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. 11 Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12 When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.”

          8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”

          10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”

          11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

          12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”

          13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”

          The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

          20 Adam[c] named his wife Eve,[d] because she would become the mother of all the living.

          21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” 23 So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side[e] of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

        3 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

        2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

        4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

        6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

        Heavenly bliss: when conscious thought finds out how to apply Gospel truth in order to create life, worlds, universes, and time. The problem with Bible truth is people don’t know how to apply it to their personal life. When you read it with the idea in mind that the kingdom of God is within, then you can start making sense of it. I think Jesus literally wanted us to have eternal life. He wanted us to stop dying and getting sick. But in order to do that, we have to learn to use all of our brain, which right now we only use a small portion of it that we call our conscious thoughts. We have to be born again by learning to use our subconscious and universally conscious mind. The conscious and subconscious must meet to create life for ourselves and beyond.

      11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.

      3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

      5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

      8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

          20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. 21 The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though[a] every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.

          22 “As long as the earth endures,

        15 Then God said to Noah, 16 “Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives. 17 Bring out every kind of living creature that is with you—the birds, the animals, and all the creatures that move along the ground—so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in number on it.”

        Noah and the Flood

        9 This is the account of Noah and his family.

        Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. 10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.

        11 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. 12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. 13 So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress[c] wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.[d] 16 Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit[e] high all around.[f] Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. 17 I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. 18 But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you. 19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. 20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. 21 You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.”

        22 Noah did everything just as God commanded him.

    If Jesus was not innocent then all of mankind is still in their sin and destined for Hell. An imperfect sacrifice would not be acceptable in the eyes of God, so God almighty sacrificed himself to save us from himself.

    • df NJ

      Jesus was not innocent in the eyes of the Pharisees was what I said. Some day we may know what is acceptable in the eyes of God. I doubt very much you speak for God on this Earth.

      I really do not want to argue this with you but you do realize that it is impossible to kill God. So I’m not sure it was really a sacrifice. However, let’s just agree it was religiously significant.

      • tsf

        Hey friend, of course God cannot be killed. The man Jesus Christ died. A reading of Phillipians chapter 2 reveals the following:

        Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;

        do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

        Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,

        who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,

        but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.

        Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

        For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,

        so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

        and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

        • tsf

          And yet the scriptures are full of references of Jesus Christ as the Eternal Jehovah God incarnate in human flesh. Jesus Christ indeed shares the Godhead – The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Each are individually revealed to be God yet they are separate and distinct. The three persons of the trinity are the One God.
          God is manifest in three persons.

          • tsf

            This is a lot to say for so little space, but..

            God created free moral beings such as angels and humans. He loves us DEARLY.
            Yet, we have chosen, by our free will, to do great evil. All have sinned; and all transgressed His commandments and his Law of Love.

            Transgression without punishment is not law. It is merely advice. In this great predicament of loving man so much, yet alienated by his sinfulness and self-willed rebellion, God had to do something with that transgression, in order to uphold the righteousness of the law, and at the same time, be reconciled to man.

            This He did for all mankind — past, present, future — by sending Jesus to be a sacrifice for our sins. He couldn’t simply forgive us because that would render the law, and all righteousness, meaningless. Someone had to pay the price.

      • Preacher62

        Acts 26:15‘Who are You, Lord?’ I asked.

        ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ the Lord replied. 16‘But get up and stand on your feet. For I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen from Me and what I will show you. 17I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them 18to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those sanctified by faith in Me.’

So the moment the electricity stops, people are not able to use MAC machines, buy gasoline or groceries, the people in power lose everything. So the people in power are not going to let this happen ever. Nothing will change. We’ve been on the edge of destruction since the 1970s.

      25 When Methuselah had lived 187 years, he became the father of Lamech. 26 After he became the father of Lamech, Methuselah lived 782 years and had other sons and daughters. 27 Altogether, Methuselah lived a total of 969 years, and then he died.

Cain was then building a city, and he named it after his son Enoch. 18 To Enoch was born Irad, and Irad was the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael was the father of Methushael, and Methushael was the father of Lamech.

Tubal-Cain’s sister was Naamah.

      23 Lamech said to his wives,

      “Adah and Zillah, listen to me;

      I have killed a man for wounding me,

      a young man for injuring me.

      then Lamech seventy-seven times.”

      25 Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth,[h] saying, “God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him.” 26 Seth also had a son, and he named him Enosh.

      At that time people began to call on[i] the name of the Lord.

      15 But the Lord said to him, “Not so[e]; anyone who kills Cain will suffer vengeance seven times over.” Then the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him. 16 So Cain went out from the Lord’s presence and lived in the land of Nod,[f] east of Eden.

    I have lots of family members who are or were in the trucking business. Some drove for the local steel mills when the industry was booming and others for various manufacturers and or wholesale grocer chains.

    All who have a career that requires long periods of sedentary driving but especially truck drives sacrifice their health. I can only go by the testimonials of my friends and family who were OTR drivers but according to them the physicals get tougher each year as OTR driving contributes to a higher glucose levels and other related health problems.

    For those who owned their rigs out right and drove for themselves, just keeping up with the insurance on their trucks cut or cuts, if they still drive, into almost all profit that could be made today. Even more so now because the work is not steady or commercially competitive. By some accounts and as I understand it it the insurance (liability coverage alone) is a lot more than most of care to even estimate when $5 million is sometimes the minimal coverage required.

    I for one have a deep gratitude and respect for my OTR/truck driving family and friends! America would be a different place without you!

      7 The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. 2 Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate, 3 and also seven pairs of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth. 4 Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”

      5 And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him.

      6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth. 7 And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8 Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground, 9 male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.

      11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.

    You are so far off base that your theology has made you foolish.

    “And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” ( Luke 23:26-43)

    “You brought me this man as one who was perverting the people; and here I have examined him in your presence and have not found this man guilty of any of your charges against him. Neither has Herod, for he sent him back to us. In deed, he has done nothing to deserve death. I will therefore have him flogged and release him.” ( Luke 22:65-23:26)

    “Certainly this man was innocent.” ( Luke 23:44-49)

    “He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.” (Mark 7:31-37)

      21 Sons were also born to Shem, whose older brother was[h] Japheth; Shem was the ancestor of all the sons of Eber.

      22 The sons of Shem:

      Elam, Ashur, Arphaxad, Lud and Aram.

      23 The sons of Aram:

      Uz, Hul, Gether and Meshek.[i]

      24 Arphaxad was the father of[j] Shelah,

      and Shelah the father of Eber.

      25 Two sons were born to Eber:

      One was named Peleg,[k] because in his time the earth was divided; his brother was named Joktan.

      26 Joktan was the father of

      Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29 Ophir, Havilah and Jobab. All these were sons of Joktan.

      30 The region where they lived stretched from Mesha toward Sephar, in the eastern hill country.

      31 These are the sons of Shem by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations.

      32 These are the clans of Noah’s sons, according to their lines of descent, within their nations. From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood.

    “I had some mighty Guardian Angels riding along that kept me safe.”

    I believe you. I have a close friend who is an old faithful in the trucking industry, working with the same company for many years. Lots of funny things began happening. New mngt, drivers getting fired right & left. My friend made a small mistake, something about some gas overflowing from his tanker. Not that much even. He was always super careful! So he calls in to report it, wanting to do the responsible thing. When he gets back, he finds himself fired. Apparently they’re hiring cheaper drivers to cut costs while pushing out the seasoned ones. And you know what?
    We ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

      8 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded. 2 Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky. 3 The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, 4 and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. 5 The waters continued to recede until the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains became visible.

      6 After forty days Noah opened a window he had made in the ark 7 and sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth. 8 Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground. 9 But the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark. 10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. 11 When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth. 12 He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.

    If the lights go out for any extended period of time, people will die in droves. They can’t/won’t put their hands to work. It’s beneath their dignity.

    Just imagine one day the sun stops shining.

    Right now fuel is getting cheaper by the minute. Nothing to fear in regards to trucks. Unless the truckers get mumps and kill their testicles.

    Try thinking about walking out to your car and it will not start, Your mobile device dead. You go into a store to contact someone. All their computers are down and phones are dead .
    People around you are starting to freak out. They are as panicked as you are starting to get. There are cars and trucks stalled dead on the street, People wandering around not knowing what to do, holding their now dumb phones in the air poking on the now dead screens.
    They are helpless without their electronic brains. ALL Computers are fried… Everything in our society runs on computers. Yes. Your trusty car will be dead. Unless it is early 1980 vintage. Immune to EMP
    You will have to find your own way home. There will be no Taxi no UBER no nothing.
    This is what will happen if a EMP disaster happens. It does not matter if it is natural from the sun or Russia and or China detonates mutiple EMP weapons over the US. The latter is the most likely.
    The lights will go out. Totally for a long time. You will be on your feet.
    What will you do?
    Hope you don’t depend on the grubberment.

    He is wrong in saying that very few of us live an independent life. The truth is that none of us live an entirely independent life, and none of us ever has. Humans have always survived by working together in groups. And even the lone “mountain man” uses items manufactured elsewhere by other groups of people of whom he is an extension.

    During the 2011 tornado outbreak in Alabama, we lost power for 7 days, but received no damage from the storms. We forgot to fill our gas tanks, so we couldn’t leave town to get more. We survived on freezer food for 4 days, then cooked stuff from storage over a fire in the backyard. The local grocery stores sold out of stuff within 3-4 days. Finally, on day 6, our in-laws invited us over for a BBQ- lots and lots of steaks from their freezer. We played board games, rode our bikes, and listened to updates by radio. We had no information on what was going on. Stealing, break-ins, went sky-high. In our neighborhood, hearing gun shots at night and during the day became normal. We have a scary looking dog- that seemed to help. Everyone was packing heat – and openly, too. We didn’t see any police except at the grocery stores and wherever a crowd was gathered.
