Starting next week, trillions of Brood X cicadas will begin their assault on nearly all of the country, east of the Mississippi River. They've been lying in wait for 17 years until the time and temperature is right to begin their deafening descent upon millions of Americans. Meteorologist and CBS News climate specialist Jeff Berardelli reports.

Jesus is God & He loves you Jesus will soon be seen by all men, women, and children up in the clouds. Jesus is returning now! Believe and be saved. Exodus 3:14 (God speaking) And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. John 8:58 (Jesus speaking) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. John 10:30 (Jesus speaking) I and my Father are one. Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, *The everlasting Father,* The Prince of Peace. Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, *God with us.* John 1:1 & 14 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word was made flesh (Lord Jesus), and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 8:24 (Jesus speaking) I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. John 14:9 (Jesus speaking) Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Hebrews 1:1-3, & 8 (God calls His Son "O God" because Jesus IS God in the flesh) 1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds *and every eye shall see him,* and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Isaiah 44:6 (God speaking) Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Revelation 1:8 (Jesus speaking) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, *the Almighty.* Revelation 22:13 (Jesus speaking) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. --- There Are None Righteous --- How To Be Saved Romans 3:10 & 23 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Luke 5:31-32 (Jesus speaking) 31 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. 32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 1 Peter 3:18 (The word “quicken” means “to make alive”) For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but quickened by the Spirit Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Warming Climate BULL 💩. Tell it to the NOT MELTING ICECAPS IN 🇮🇸 Where HOT 🥵 Volcanoes 🌋🌋 can’t even melt the Tundra. Only unscientific, Crooked scientists who make $BILLION$ on the Fancy of Global Warming or as they now name it lie about Global Warming, O3 decline & Climate Change. They change names cause the 🌎 & humanity didn’t die after 10, not even 20 years as they predicted... they had to come up w a NEW CRISIS NAME! These lies are 🤮 BTW: Climate ALWAYS changes; it has for 4.5 billion years.

*The following is happening in our World and no one is noticing.* 1. Armageddon is about 4 action events. 1st horse, Bow = *Send* it. 2nd horse, Sword = *Strike* it. 3rd horse, Scales = *Split* it. 4th horse, Fire = *Sear* it. That ='s Our planet for the last 2 years have averaged 3.23 Rockets a day into space. That's hundreds of rockets we've *Send*/sent up. We've sent close to a 1000 Rockets/with Elon saying he's sending another 1000. They are *weapons* designed to stop "Wormwood" in the book of Revelation in the Bible. All Telescopes on this planet are pointing in the same direction. Elon is building underground tunnels in major cities. "Wormwood" is going to hit the PACIFIC OCEAN. *EVACUATE*. All the ELITE TOP COMPANIES ARE EVACUATING THE PACIFIC COASTS...SO SHOULD YOU!!! 2. "The mark of the beast". Take 3 6's and place them in a circle and you have a virus warning symbol. But the Mark is the VACCINE. And because it is a global problem it will demand a global solution. *The Vaccine will be given Airborne and it will land on your forehead and hands.* It will try to alter Chromosome 7 lamb1. It is during these moments where the Bible mentions: *You will wish the mountains to fall on you.* And this is also the moment where the Bible mentions: The "few" and the "many". "Few" will die from this Vaccine (millions) and "many" will live (billions). This vaccine will cure all diseases BUT it will not remove the Pain from any injuries you receive. That is the moment of the "delusion" mentioned in Revelations. If you get a cut or any injury, the pain will never go away, they just keep building up. You will wish the "mountains to fall on you". 666 (six - sick - sicknesses) *Six species of human corona viruses are known* , with some species subdivided into two different strains, making seven strains of human corona viruses altogether. Rev. 13:16 is referring to those who DIDN'T make the rapture of the church (The not "born again" PEOPLE). 1st Horseman is the Bow (SEND it). < That Horse rides as we speak. All the Rockets this Planet SENDS into Space are Weapons of mass Destruction targeted at "Wormwood". For almost 2 years now our Planet as sent almost 1000 Rockets into space and now we are averaging 3.23 a day. Elon just boasted within the past month how he intends to send a 1000 more. BEFORE those ROCKETS touch "WORMWOOD", 2 EVENTS will happen. 1 Event will be the "RAPTURE" and 1 will be the "AIRBORNE VACCINE". < BOTH OF THESE EVENTS HAPPEN AT THE SAME TIME. < The "AIRBORNE VACCINE" is the reason it happens. I have to stop here and explain something. Our Souls are physically attached to Our flesh by Chromosome 7 lamb1. When a Person (truly) becomes "BORN AGAIN" Chromosome 7 lamb1 CHANGES. So now you have 2 different groups of People on the Planet. Those who are "born again" w/the altered "lamb1" and those who don't. Now having said that. When the "AIRBORNE VACCINE" lands on your forehead and hands, it's going to try and alter Chromosome 7 lamb1 AGAIN. When it does, ONLY those who are "BORN AGAIN" will die. Those who don't have the altered "lamb1" will LIVE...and be able to buy and sell during the TIME OF THE ANTICHRIST. The "BORN AGAIN" People are people who have God's Holy Spirit INSIDE THEIR SOULS. *God's Holy Spirit* isn't on this planet during the 7 years of the antichrist. His Spirit is raptured from this planet BEFORE THE 2ND HORSEMEN RIDES!!!!! (I'm throwing pearls, you better be getting this).

Rare bred of locusts that came from China thru it's seeds mail program to American homes if planted will cause disaster to American agricultural produce as these swarms of locusts invade the United States. These hungry locusts will eat anything green agricultural produce,. They can eat whole tomato plants, and all vegetables, corn, plants, cucumber, beans, rice, wheat, fruits of anykind. Therefore, if any Americans receive these unsolicited seeds that has Chinese characters that says when you receive this seeds you should plant them in your backyard and you will have plenty of wholesome vegetables to eat, you should never never plant them but surrender to the Department of Agriculture.

I used to be a vegan pantheist and God woke me up to the truth in 2018. Now I'm a Christian, a flat earther and I eat a regular balanced diet. Now I don't touch those nasty soy based impossible burgers or any other soy. Those burgers contain 44mg estrogen and over time could quite possibly induce breast formation in men and cause breast cancer in women. Satanists run these big companies and they worship a transgender baphomet. No wonder the transgender and climate change agendas are so perpetuated... They want to defile people, enforce the Georgia Guidestones for the new world order and hide that there is a God, Jesus, who actually loves people and sacrificed himself to break the curse over humanity and atone for our sins so we can be reconciled to God. I'm still in awe of His love because humanity is undeserving, yet He loves us like a good father loves their child and like a good husband would love his wife. This entire world needs Jesus so badly.
