-Noua ordine conflictuală mondială: încercuirea Europei

Vă rog să-mi permiteţi să reiau harta difuzată în articolul de ieri: acea imagine a unui spaţiu european înconjurat de un arc de cerc compact construit din ură, intoleranţă, ambiţii de revanşă istorică, invidie, nelinişte pentru viitorul imediat, sărăcie adesea cu mult sub limitele de jos ale statisticilor acceptate de organizaţiile mondiale.

Un arc de cerc din care pot porni vectorii unui atac asupra Europei. Unul care să aibă motivaţii diferite, adesea chiar profund contradictorii, dus către doi mari actori, Federaţia Rusă şi Statul Islamic, uniţi de o ură profundă pe ceea ce înseamnă construcţia de putere şi prosperitate a blocului occidental, Uniunea Europeană şi NATO.

Nu este o mişcare subită, ci una care s-a pregătit în urmă cu mult timp. De partea rusă, refăcând mişcările pe harta niciodată uitată a proiecţiilor pentru liniile de atac împotriva NATO, deplasând doar spre est linia de pornire a mişcării iniţiale.

De partea cealaltă, iată viziunea Statului Islamic asupra cum trebuie să arate viitoarea hartă a lumii peste care trebuie să fluture steagul negru al victoriei răzbunării definitive, al Jihadului cu Şaria ca unică formulă de guvernare pentru o spaţiu al adevărului unic al lui Allah şi mărturisit de Profetul său, Mahomed.

În partea noastră a baricadei, avem Europa, cu cele două formule ale sale de unitate politico-economică, Uniunea Europeană şi politico-militară, NATO, integrând zona de securitate a spaţiului euro-atlantic. Iată posibila hartă de putere pe linia frontului de est al NATO: De-ar fi lucrurile atât de simple… Europa acestui moment prezintă probleme foarte grave de securitte, născute din vulnerabilităţi binecunoscute, doar că, din obsesia corectitudinii politice, foarte puţin prezentate la nivelul discursului public. Vulnerabilităţi care s-au adâncit şi acutizat datorită, pe de o parte, efectelor profunde şi de durată ale unei crize economice, financiare şi sociale prost şi insuficient manageriată de administraţia de la Bruxelles. Pe de altă parte, în locul promisei integrări accelerate a ţărilor membre în proiectul european, vedem o foarte clară şi susţinută tendinţă de refugiu în protecţionism naţional, în aşteptarea prudentă şi destul de speriată a unei noi crize economice, mult mai importantă de cât precedenta, dar şi a unei probabile tensionări extreme a relaţiei cu cei doi vectori care, din acest moment, ameninţă deschis Europa.

[…] trebuie asumate opţiunile în consecinţă. Oricare ar fi acestea. Numai că, foarte, foarte repede, politicienii nu se vor mai putea juca ca până acum cu vorbele şi cineva va trebui să treacă decis la comandă. Starea de aşteptare se va termina repede, ceea ce auziţi şi vedeţi acum sunt ultimele avertismente. Altfel, plata va fi grea, dureroasă şi nimeni nu a spus, încă, pe unde va trece noua linie de demarcaţie cu a sa nouă Cortină.

How well the Apostles heeded the Great Commission Command (Map)

they all died very far away from home. Indeed, they heeded Jesus’ command well. Teach us Lord to heed your call as well!

Creation Calls – Brian Doerkson (One of my favorite all time songs)

Creation Calls  by Brian Doerksen
I have felt the wind blow,
Whispering your name
I have seen your tears fall,
When I watch the rain.
(Refrain)
How could I say there is no God?
When all around creation calls!!
A singing bird, a mighty tree,
The vast expanse of open sea
(Musical interlude)
Gazing at a bird in flight,
Soaring through the air.
Lying down beneath the stars,
I feel your presence there.
I love to stand at ocean shore
And feel the thundering breakers roar,
To walk through golden fields of grain
With endless bloom horizons fray.
Listening to a river run,
Watering the Earth.
Fragrance of a rose in bloom,
A newborns cry at birth.
(Refrain)
I love to stand at ocean shore
And feel the thundering breakers roar,
To walk through golden fields of grain
With endless bloom horizons fray
I believe
I believe
I believe
(Interlude)
I believe
I believe
I believe just like a child
(Choir I believe..)
I believe

Recalling the famous Apollo-era pictures of Earth taken by lunar astronauts, this digital image is a spectacular portrait of the Western Hemisphere at the time of one of the strongest hurricanes ever observed in the Eastern Pacific.

This combination of science, engineering and artistry was generated by researchers in the Laboratory for Atmospheres at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, using data from three different Earth-observing satellite instruments.

Pacific NW—Washington, Vancouver Island

This cloudless view of northwestern Washington and southeastern British Columbia is a study in varied land-use patterns: the forested Olympic Peninsula and Cascade Range contrast with the wheatlands of the drier east side of the mountains. The checkerboard pattern of clearcut forest is accented by snow in the range east of Seattle. Major cities and seaports of the Pacific Northwest—Seattle, Tacoma and Vancouver—take advantage of the deep, sheltered channels.

The natural beauty and safe harbors of the region are products of tectonic processes acting on the western margin of North America. Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker are just two in a line of recently active volcanoes extending from the Coast Mountains of British Columbia to Mt. Shasta in northern California. Strong earthquakes are also frequent, as exemplified by the Nisqually quake (magnitude Mw 6.8) of February 28, 2001, which rocked Tacoma, Seattle and the surrounding area.

Four Corners, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah.

The Four Corners is so called because it is the point at which the corners of four states meet neatly at the sames pot. The states are: Utah in the northwest, Colorado in the northeast,New Mexico in the southeast, and Arizona in the southwest.

Also of interest is the Colorado River, which starts in Colorado and flows to the southwest, where it crosses the US border into Mexico to empty into the Gulf of California. While on its course south, the Colorado flows through the Glen Canyon in southern Utah, the Grand Canyon in northeastern Arizona, and Lake Mead on the Nevada-Arizona border. These three features provide some of the most breathtaking natural attractions in the United States.

Consequences of sin – Joseph’s story

God forgives sin.  Besides the danger of becoming enslaved to our sin (Romans 6:16) and finding ourselves  separated from God (Isaiah 59:2), there are also some personal and physical consequences that we will suffer for our sinful actions even though God has forgiven our sin.

You can read the Bible’s story of Joseph in the book of Genesis in chapters 37-50.

Some of the consequences of the sin Joseph’s brothers committed when they sold him into slavery:

  • Their sin was constantly before them-the brother they were so jealous of and wanted to forget about was in their mind daily as their father Jacob’s unceasing grief did not abate. They also feared, lest anything should happen to the youngest son Benjamin, whom Jacob now loved and favored.
  • Uncertainty- They always wondered whether God was punishing them for what they had done to Joseph.
  • Physical hardship- They had to make the approx 250 mile trek to Egypt on foot  (that Joseph made as a slave) 6 times  (3 trips) with little provisions.  See Map 2)

Joseph was the 11th son born to Jacob (also called Israel) and Rachel(who died in childbirth when Benjamin, the 12th, and youngest son was born.Gen 37:2 states that Joseph brings a bad report to his father about his brothers, then we read how Jacob favors Joseph by making him a coat of many colors, and thirdly Joseph has special dreams (Genesis 39:5-11). All 3 factors lead to conflict in the family and the unbridled jealousy of his brothers leads to plans for murder.

„The final episode (Genesis 37:31-35) shows the desperate brothers concocting yet another scheme  to be rid of Joseph. Their plan to dispose of Joseph ended in a fiasco, now their plan to erase his memory from the family, by faking his death, fails miserably. In a powerfully ironic twist, although Jacob is deceived by the sight of Joseph’s special coat stained with goat’s blood, his unceasing grieving means that the brothers can never forget Joseph and his exalted position in the family”. (Biblica P. 125)

Although the brothers planned to kill Joseph, in the end, due to the influence of his older brothers Reuben and Judah, they decide instead to sell him to passing Ishmaelite/Midianite traders.

If being sold into slavery by your own brothers isn’t bad enough, look at the long road Joseph had to walk on foot in order to get to Egypt. (I have seen the distance between Dothan, Israel and Heliopolis or Cairo Egypt to be estimated at about 240 to 280 miles depending on the old (spice) routes taken by caravans back then.

So, imagine being threatened by death from the hands of your own brothers, then being sold into slavery and then walking on foot through desert land, more than 250 miles to Egypt, and all this at the tender age of 17.

And it doesn’t end there. Joseph is purchased by a wealthy man called Potiphar who was captain of the guards for Pharaoh. There Joseph prospered and found favor with Potiphar until Potiphar’s wife tried to seduce him continuously. Joseph refused  the temptation on the grounds that it would be a sin against God. Potiphar’s wife framed Joseph with her household and Joseph was imprisoned. He spent 2 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Even in prison Joseph found favor with the warden and he interpreted Pharaoh’s baker and cupbearer’s dreams accurately. When the Pharaoh had a troubling dream, the cup bearer remembered Joseph’s correct interpretation of his dream and recommended Joseph to Pharaoh.  Joseph prophetically interpreted Pharaoh’s dream from God and 13 years after Joseph was sold into captivity by his brothers(and at the age of 30), Pharaoh makes Joseph Prime Minister, gives him his signet ring which made him second in command after Pharaoh and Joseph starts to gather the harvests in storehouses for 7 years as he prepares for the 7 lean years of famine to come (from Pharaoh’s dream).

Joseph then married Pharaoh’s priest’s daughter Asenath and had 2 sons-Manasseh and Ephraim. During the famine Joseph becomes the savior of the world with his surplus of stored grain. The famine reaches his father Jacob in Canaan, and Jacob is forced to send his sons to Egypt to buy food.

The brothers have 3 encounters with Joseph (read Genesis 42-45) before Joseph reveals to his brothers his true identity(Genesis 45:1-3).

The troubled and divided family is finally reunited in Egypt (Goshen in the northeastern Nile delta). With the family of Jacob/Israel safely in Egypt, the stage is set for the story of Israel in the book of Exodus.

Joseph’s brothers made 3 (round) trips, traveling the approx. 250 miles trek that Joseph was forced to take when they sold him into slavery. (Map scanned from Biblica – The Bible Atlas)
