Have You Ever Spoken With One Of God’s Angels Face To Face?

 

For a person who does not know the Scriptures they may think, well wouldn’t the wings give them away or wouldn’t the halo’s be a sign to you, or maybe, the bright light around them or their bright shining eyes, wouldn’t these things let you know that you were talking with an Angel? For those of us who do know a little about the Scriptures we know that any of these things could happen if/when we meet an Angel of God, but most likely not. One also has to remember that Satan also has tens of thousands of Angels with Him who can, if they wish to, portray themselves as Angels of God in an attempt to fool people, even devout Christians. The Scriptures do let us know that it is more likely that we could/will entertain an Angel of God, and we won’t even realize that we have done so. Why would we not know, how could it be that we would not know? Friends, the answer is simple, they tend to portray themselves as everyday people, just like you and I, the same as an Angel of Satan can do.

 

So, how are we suppose to know if we have ever entertained an Angel of God? How do we know if we have ever even spoken with an Angel face to face before, or who knows, maybe even over the phone? Have you ever spoken with one of God’s Angels before? Have I? How can we be sure either way? I do not know for sure if I have or not but I would like to tell you two short stories, two possibilities that I did, at least two times where I may have caught it, realizing what had just happened. I don’t remember now which one happened first as they were both back in the late 1980’s or early 1990’s. Most all of my adult life I drove a truck for a living all over the lower 48 States and Canada and there were a few times that I took a Greyhound Bus from one job to another or times when I went to fetch an abandon truck for the company that I was working for and I would take a Bus to go get it. One day I was in the Bus Terminal in Chicago and I was laid over for a few hours waiting for a connecting bus to my destination. It was normal for me to always have my Bible with me when I was at work or just traveling and I was just sitting at a table reading paying no attention to those in the Terminal with me when an old woman just appeared in front of me and asked me a question. The oddity wasn’t that she had been able to come up to me unnoticed or that she asked me a question. She did see me reading the Bible and she stopped and asked me only one thing, what is your favorite Book? I think that I was reading in the Book of the Prophet Isaiah and I think that I told her probably the Books of Genesis or maybe Revelation. She just nodded and I looked back down to read when I realized that maybe the correct answer would have been the Book of Isaiah or even the Book of Daniel. That hesitation was maybe two seconds, three at the most, when I looked back up I could not find this old lady anywhere, I looked all around me, nothing, it was as if she had just evaporated in thin air. How she could have done that, I don’t know.

 

The other case I am going to bring to your attention is even more baffling. I realize that some will say that the old lady somehow was able to quickly get out of my sight range in that two seconds or so, somehow blended in with the paint on the walls or the vending machines but those possible answers won’t work for the next situation I am going to tell you about. One morning I was headed east on interstate 80 in western Nevada just a little ways east of Reno when I picked up a man who was about my own age who was hitch-hiking to some place in eastern Nevada. He was in the truck with me for about four hours and we just talked the miles away. He noticed my Bible that I kept on my dash and he started the conversation almost all of which was about religion or Biblical things. I remember we had a real good conversation, he was quite knowledgeable and the time went by quickly. Then, while we were still ‘in the middle of no-where’ he let me know that he needed off at the next exit ramp so I pulled off the side on the berm and we said our good byes and he got on out of the truck. I reached over to make sure that the passenger door was locked when I remembered that I was going to give him something that I had forgotten to give. I looked up and out of the window, I looked in my mirrors and then I looked all over again. There was no one anywhere to be seen anywhere. This was a desert spot, there was nothing to hide behind, just dirt and sand. This was the case that made me realize that something special had just happened, a human can not just disappear into thin air like that. Actually this just made me remember a third case of an event that not just I but several other men witness at a small business just north of Philadelphia one afternoon but that would make this article a bit to long so I will write about it at another time. So, have I ever met an Angel of God? I have never seen any wings fluttering or any halo’s, no. How about you, have you ever entertained an Angel of God? How do you know, how do you know that you haven’t?

 

Nevada Governor Signs Marijuana Bills As Adult-Use Sales Cleared For Early Start

Nevada Governor Signs Marijuana Bills as Adult-Use Sales Cleared for Early Start

Posted: 16 Jun 2017 12:51 PM PDT

Nevada is moving toward well-regulated and accessible medical and recreation marijuana programs – Governor Sandoval signed marijuana-related bills into law and the state has approved early-start recreational sales!

Of the bills, the first, SB344, requires marijuana edibles be in unattractive, childproof packaging; the second, AB422, lowers medical marijuana patient fees; and the third, SB487, imposes a 10% tax on recreational marijuana sales – adding the revenue to the state’s rainy day fund and regulating limited access of the fund until 2019.

Unfortunately, the Governor vetoed AB259, a bill that would have expunged criminal records of those convicted of possessing one ounce or less of marijuana or violating any provision of law involving marijuana that is now legal.

The approved bills will join four bills signed into law this session providing a framework for Nevada’s new recreational marijuana industry, while preserving the state’s medical marijuana program.

Additionally, Nevada’s adult-use marijuana industry could begin adult-use sales by July 1. The Department of Taxation approved temporary regulations and applications have already been accepted. However, adult-use sales could be delayed by a legal challenge from alcohol distributors. MPP is monitoring closely and will be working to avoid any delay.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Introduces Bill to Legalize Marijuana in Canada

Justin Trudeau Introduces Bill to Legalize Marijuana in Canada

3:51 PM ET

(TORONTO) — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government introduced legislation Thursday to let adults possess 30 grams of marijuana in public — a measure that would make Canada the largest developed country to end a nationwide prohibition on recreational marijuana.

Trudeau has long promised to legalize recreational pot use and sales. U.S voters in California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada voted last year to approve the use of recreational marijuana, joining Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska.

The South American nation of Uruguay is the only nation to legalize recreational pot.

The proposed law allows four plants to be grown at home. Those under 18 found with less than five grams of marijuana would not face criminal charges but those who sell it or give to youth could face up to 14 years in jail.

“It’s too easy for our kids to get marijuana. We’re going to change that,” Trudeau said.

Officials said Canadians should be able to smoke marijuana legally by July 1, 2018. The federal government set the age at 18, but is allowing each of Canada’s provinces to determine if it should be higher. The provinces will also decide how the drug will be distributed and sold. The law also defines the amount of THC in a driver’s blood, as detected by a roadside saliva test, that would be illegal. Marijuana taxes will be announced at a later date.

The Canadian government closely followed the advice of a marijuana task force headed by former Liberal Health Minister Anne McLellan. That panel’s report noted public health experts tend to favor a minimum age of 21 as the brain continues to develop to about 25, but said setting the minimum age too high would preserve the illicit market.

Canadian youth have higher rates of cannabis use than their peers worldwide.

“If your objective is to protect public health and safety and keep cannabis out of the hands of minors, and stop the flow of profits to organized crime, then the law as it stands today has been an abject failure,” Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told a news conference. “Police forces spend between $2 billion and $3 billion every year trying to deal with cannabis, and yet Canadian teenagers are among the heaviest users in the western world … We simply have to do better.”

Goodale said they’ve been close touch with the U.S. government on the proposed law and noted exporting and importing marijuana will continue to be illegal.

“The regime we are setting up in Canada will protect our kids better and stop the flow of illegal dollars to organized crime. Our system will actually be the better one,” Goodale said.

But Christina Grant, a professor of pediatrics at McMaster University in Ontario, worries the government is conveying the message that marijuana is not harmful. She fears usage will go up because concerns about its safety will dissipate.

“One in seven youths who have used cannabis will develop an addiction to cannabis and that impacts your life, schooling, job prospects, social and emotional relationships,” she said. “And there is the risk of developing psychosis if you start using cannabis as a teenager. The more you use and the younger you start, you have up to four times the risk of developing some kind of psychotic illness.”

Former Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair, who is the parliamentary secretary to the justice minister, said officials learned from the experiences from other jurisdictions like Colorado and Washington state.

While the government moves to legalize marijuana, retail outlets selling pot for recreational use have already been set up. Trudeau has emphasized current laws should be respected. Police in Toronto, Vancouver and other cities raided stores earlier last month and made arrests.

The news that Canada was soon going to announce the law was noticed online last month by Snoop Dogg , who tweeted “Oh Canada!” Canadian folk singer Pat Robitaille released a “Weed song” to coincide with the government’s announcement.

A Quarter of American Beer Drinkers Say They’re Switching to Pot

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF TIME.COM)

(POT IS A STEP DOWN DRUG, NOT A STEP UP DRUG. LEGAL POT IS A THREAT TO THE ALCOHOL AND PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRIES AS WELL AS TO THE PROFITS OF DRUG CARTELS, POLICE DEPARTMENTS AND TO THE STATE AND FEDERAL PRISON FOR PROFIT SYSTEMS. THIS IS THE MAIN REASONS THAT POT IS STILL ILLEGAL, THAT AND PEOPLE LIKE THE AG JEFF SESSIONS WHO ARE TOTALLY IGNORANT OF KNOWLEDGE AND OR TRUTH OR SIMPLY DO NOT CARE WHAT THE TRUTH IS.)

A Quarter of American Beer Drinkers Say They’re Switching to Pot

11:34 AM ET

As legalization of marijuana grows throughout the United States, so does its popularity with beer drinkers.

About one in four Americans are now spending their money on marijuana instead of beer, new research from Cannabiz Consumer Group found. Twenty-seven percent of beer consumers are legally purchasing cannabis instead of beer, or suggested they would purchase it instead if it were legalized in their state. The research group surveyed 40,000 Americans last year.

About 24.6 million Americans legally purchased pot in the U.S. last year and that number is expected to grow, according to the study. Numerous states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, and a smaller number of states have legalized it for recreational use. The Department of Justice under the Obama Administration relaxed federal enforcement of marijuana laws in states where it is legal, but the Trump Administration may reverse that trend.

Still, the group predicts the cannabis industry will grow to $50 billion. The U.S. beer market sells over $100 billion in beer each year, according to the National Beer Wholesalers Association.

If marijuana were legalized nationally, the beer industry would lose more than $2 billion in retail sales, the Cannabis Consumer Group says. The group anticipates the cannabis industry will take just over 7% of the beer industry’s market.

Other studies have supported this concept. As Money reported in 2016, the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, Oregon and Washington state contributed to beer sales falling in those states, according to research firm Cowen & Company.

Most recently, Massachusetts, Maine, California and Nevada passed measures to legalize the recreational use of marijuana late last year. More than half of U.S. states permit the medical use of marijuana.

What Is The Value Of The Dollar Inside The United States?

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF THE MICHAEL REAGAN REPORT)

Michael Reagan
Businesses Flee California

By Michael Reagan

It never occurred to me that one could do exchange rate calculations between U.S. states. I always thought exchange rates only applied to foreign countries.

For example: Does the 20-to-1 exchange rate for pesos and dollars make up for the risk of decapitation on a visit to Mexico? Or should I settle for the much lower 1.32-to-1 exchange rate for Canadian dollars to U.S. dollars and have a better chance of surviving my vacation?

The Tax Foundation has estimated the difference in purchasing power for a $100 bill in various states. The winner of the competition was Alabama where you get $115.34 in value for your Benjamin.

Right next door to my home state of California, my former home state (went to high school there) of Arizona nets you $103.73 for your hundred smackers.

While in California your $100 is worth $88.97. Only in New York, New Jersey and of course Washington, D.C. could you get less for your money.

Is it any wonder Spectrum Location Solutions found 9,000 businesses left California between 2008 and 2015 in search of pastures where their greenbacks had more impact.

Joseph Vranich, president of SLS, told the Dallas Business Journal “companies are leaving California to escape escalating costs and regulations can move to Texas or Nevada that have no income tax and high relative purchasing power. I even wonder if some kind of ‘business migration history’ has been made.”

In the same interview Varnish estimated that California escapees have enjoyed “astonishing” operating cost savings from 20 to 35 percent.

That’s what happens when nanny state government decides to put the golden goose on an Ex-Lax diet to pay for its “compassionate” big government.

Some states claim to be “open for business” while California has “opened up on business.”

The top ten states that have enjoyed to California’s government-induced business exodus are Texas at the top followed by Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Virginia.

The California counties that have suffered the largest loss of businesses are just the ones you would expect: Los Angeles, Orange, Santa Clara, San Francisco, San Diego, Alameda, San Mateo, Ventura, Sacramento and Riverside.

Proving that after a while business realizes California may have good weather, but you can’t take a climate to the bank.

Breitbart observed, “The Tax Foundation established a direct inverse correlation between purchasing power and the percentage level of state tax rate. California, with a 13.3 percent top state tax bracket, leads the nation.”

A dubious distinction that costs the remaining residents in lost employment opportunities.
