The Secret of Fire Tornado

Fire tornado as high as 30 meters that recorded a video camera Chris Tangey of Alice Springs Television on 16 September 2012 is a rare phenomenon. Incidentally, Tangey, which is conducting the survey location near Curtin Springs in Australia, saw a vortex of fire that rose high into the sky.
"Tornado sounded like a jet fighter aircraft that pass, but there's no wind around Us," said Tangey told the Northern Territory News.

The fire tower was dancing on the landscape for nearly 40 minutes. Tangey and his team from the TV station motionless witness the rare natural events. Although rare, a fire tornado also occurred in several other regions of the world, including in Aracatuba city, Brazil. Drought experienced during the three months the city created the perfect conditions for the fire tornado.

This rare event occurs when the fire stirred by a strong flow of dry air to form a vertical vortex. Tornadoes can form a vortex of hot air around or in the pillar of fire.

The phenomenon is often dubbed as the fire demon can be revoked as high as 15 feet up a tree root. Generally, tornado of flames reaching 30-50 meters tall with a diameter of several meters and lasted a few minutes. But the huge fire tornado can reach hundreds of meters with winds of 160 kilometers per hour. Tornadoes of this magnitude can take more than 20 minutes.

Most tornadoes form when the fire fire fire met with warm air moves upward. Large fires can create a vortex of fire the size, intensity, and duration were varied.

In 1923, the Great Kanto earthquake in Japan triggered a storm of fire and a city-wide fire vortex generating enormous. Within 15 minutes the giant fire tornado that killed 38 thousand people. *** [REUTERS | LIVESCIENCE | KORAN TEMPO 4005]

Youth Pastor Pleads Guilty to Impersonating Cop: What's going on in the church these days?



Many pastors all over the nation are misrepresenting God while preaching His Word.  Youth Pastor of a church called, The Basement in Alabama has pleaded guilty.  Matt Pitt was arrested for trying to  impersonate a police officer.  The 28-year old pastor arrested in May after flashing a badge and telling Calera police that he was a deputy from Jefferson County, according to TheChurchReport.com.

Many of these pastors are doing all sorts of things, possibly they think it is cool for them to do wrong, since some of the have the hippest, most popular mega churches, but God is not pleased.   There are many whom do wrong as though they can get away with it, but according to James 3:1, it says: 'My brethren, be not many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the severer judgment.'  Many of them have a personality of being slick, but one thing is for certain, each and every 'so-call' alleged slick preacher cannot out con God.  He's watching each and everything they do and while they are having church like they're having house parties, He's taking record.  They will have to face judgement when God gets tired of them making bad representations of His Kingdom.

How many times have we forewarned you about these new age churches? God told us to not identify with the world and this church seems to be allegedly worldly, which is against God's Word in I John 2:15, 'Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.' Then God told us in I Peter 1:16, 'Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.'  We are not supposed to have church like we are in nightclub with hip hop or rock blending with christian music.  No wonder, he was caught allegedly impersonating a cop, simply because there does not seem to be any anointing in their church services, if you would just take a look.   Look at what many of these pastors are calling church these days, which is nothing but a spirit of carnality.   Don't be surprised this youth pastor was caught doing wrong, because if His church is not different from the world, no telling what the Devil will get him or any other pastor to do.  
 
 Watch The Basement Church
When we visiting thebasementonline.com, we saw Matt Pitt's name at the bottom of the site, so this has to be the correct church.  Then, we saw his Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/MattPittTheBasement that identifies him.

Megachurch Married Pastor Admits Relationship with Teen, Claims He Did Not Know the Law: He knew it was a sin to commit adultery and mess with a child, didn't he?


It seems like Pastor Jack Schaap tried to con the judge into thinking he does not know it is against the law for him to had allegedly messed around with a teenage a girl, but he sure can't fool God.   Schaap is supposed to be a man of God and even those who caught him doing wrong knew it was illegal for him to be involved with sexual encounters with a teen, because on the news, it was allegedly stated, he used to preach against such sin.  So, it is not like he has Dementia and cannot remember the laws of the land.

We are not dumb to realize that Pastor Jack Schaap also knows as a husband, he is not supposed to commit adultery.  If he was a single pastor, he was not supposed to commit fornication.   It is not like this man did not know what the Word of God said against sin.   Did Pastor Schaap read Hebrews 13:4? It says, 'Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.'  While preaching against sin, did he ever touch on the subject of adultery with this scripture found in I Corinthians 6:9-10?  It said, 'Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.' Furthermore, the Bible was so very clear when it said in Exodus 20:14, 'Thou shalt not commit adultery.'  Therefore, whether he claims he did not know the law, regarding his alleged relationship with teen (which we know he does) or not, he was wrong as a husband and a man of God for committing adultery.

Now, let's discuss this issue with his alleged relationship with this teenager, how does a grown man think a federal judge is going to believe him when he claims he did not know the law?   He lied, that's another violation against God's Word.   So, he not only allegedly fooled around with this teen, he also committed adultery and then lied in the court of law.   Let's pray for this former pastor, because he has got a lot of repenting to do, he did three things God is displeased with.

Megachurch Pastor Admits Relationship with Teen, Claims He Did Not Know the Law
HAMMOND – The former pastor of a northwestern Indiana megachurch has admitted having three sexual encounters with a parish girl, but told a judge he didn’t realize at the time that his actions were illegal.

Celebrity Hollywood News: 'Sons of Anarchy' Actor Found Dead, Suspected in Murder



A popular Hollywood actor,  Johnny Kendrick Lewis is now dead.  He is identified as a murder suspect in the death of 81-year-old Katherine Chabot Davis, of Los Angeles.   Now it is unclear what the nature of the relationship between the two, but according to KTLA, Johnny Kendrick got into an altercation with a neighbor and handy man, after he beat the elderly woman to death.   Another Hollywood celebrity tragically ends his life, but we wonder what was behind his rage? 

Now Johnny Kendrick Lewis allegedly murdered the elderly woman, then was seen running out of the house before he got into a fight with a neighbor and handy man, then ran upstairs into the home and allegedly jumped to his death.  Katherine Davis often rented out her property to actors and producers in the Hollywood entertainment industry, but we are not sure if Lewis resided in the home. 

We cannot help but think Johnny Lewis possibly either had a drug habit and/or could not afford to live there and possibly, when Davis told him he had to pay his rent, that's when he went into a rage.   We are not unclear, but since she allowed actors and producers to rent out rooms, Lewis being an actor could have been a tenant.  Whatever the case, obviously Johnny Kendrick Lewis was a very troubled man and could not cope with life.   However, we discovered Lewis was very successful actor on various TV shows, the latest, "Sons of Anarchy."  Now, Lewis had several roles, according to KTLA: "Criminal Minds," "Bones" and "CSI," and others, but he had just been released from jail and rehab, according to TMZ.  Investigators allegedly stated he may have been on PCP or methamphetamine at the time of his death, if so, this explains everything.  

SCR readers, it is very important for us to understand that these Hollywood celebrities may seem like they are better off than ordinary people, but really, in many cases, there lives are much worst off than ours.   We should not desire to ever envy celebrities, for God told us in Proverbs 24:19 and Psalm 37:1, 'Fret not yourself because of evil men, neither be you envious at the wicked.'  Pay attention to that part, 'envious of the wicked' for a moment.   There is a reason King David wrote those words.   Did you know back in Biblical times, there were rich people whom were very wicked?  Obviously, back then, they lived just like many rich and famous people we see today, they possibly flaunted their wealth in front of ordinary people, but no doubt were always in distress.  It does not matter how many of these celebrities are claiming to be born again Christians, many of them are very troubled individuals and as God's children, we should not ever want to change places with them.   Johnny Kendrick Lewis is just one of many other horror stories we have heard about.  Therefore, being seen on television and the big screen may fascinate you, but behind all of their fame and fortune is much hell.


This is very sad, may Katherine Davis rest in peace.

Jerry Sandusky Named in Poly Prep Child Prostitution Ring From The 1970's

Jerry Sandusky faces life in prison and is also allegedly involved in a child prostitution ring uncovered at Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn. Greg Bucceroni, 48, claims that he was a child prostitute handpicked for Sandusky but was passed off to someone else because he became “unavailable.”

Know the Seismic Waves

Earthquake is a jolt in the earth's crust as a companion symptom of tectonic, volcanism activity, or debris that occurs in the earth. At the time of the earthquake, we can feel the vibrations or shocks on where we stand. Earth rocked sideways and upwards. Vibration or shock is seismic waves.

Seismic waves are very low frequency waves that spread through the earth. The emergence of the seismic waves caused by a shift in the Earth's crust segments or can be generated from the explosion at the top of the crust.

The rate of amplitude and direction of propagation of seismic waves depends on the type of seismic waves and the material in its path. Seismograph record the amplitude and frequency of seismic waves and generate information about the earth and the subsurface structure of the earth.
Types of seismic wave. (Picture from: http://www.physics.unc.edu/)
Seismic waves generated naturally as a result of shifting crust (plates) of the earth to the attention of seismologists (seismologists) and physicists to determine the center of the earth quake. While the seismic waves generated artificially as a result of an accidental explosion on the upper crust of the earth useful to geologists and physicists to study the state of the earth of the earth and help search for the sources of fossil fuels.

Seismic waves are divided into two types. First, body wave. Body wave consists of primary wave (commonly abbreviated as P waves) and secondary waves (commonly abbreviated as S waves). Body wave propagates through the earth outwards from the epicenter.

P waves typically arrive at the surface of the earth as a jolt. P waves move faster than S waves, so the P wave is the first wave recorded on seismographs (earthquake recording devices) and became the first wave of people in the area felt the quake. Because it is the first, the wave is called the primary wave.
Seismic wave mapping of the interior of the Earth. (Picture from: http://www.physics.unc.edu/)
P waves (also called compressional or longitudinal waves) travels through solids, liquids (liquid). and gas, and thus going through the whole body of the earth. P waves cause the transmission medium is a liquid, solid, or gas moving back and forth in the direction of the path of deployment. When P waves traveling through rock, the waves move / push tiny rock particles back and forth in the direction of wave propagation. The result is a series of strain and pressure back and forth. This incident is similar to what happens when we pull or a slinky stretch horizontally.

In the earth, the P wave propagates at a rate of about 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) per second at the surface of the rock to about 10.4 kilometers (6.5 miles) per second near the earth's core (approximately 2,900 kilometers below the Earth's surface ). Accretion rate of the P wave to the depths of the earth due to increase hydrostatic pressure, which corresponds to changes in the composition of the rocks. In general, the accretion rate resulting P wave propagates with a curved path.
Seismic waves (Earthquakes) probe the interior of the Earth. (Picture from: http://www.physics.unc.edu/)
The appearance of the P wave was accompanied by a wave of S. S waves are also known as shear or transverse waves. The rate of propagation of the S wave and P wave arrival time resulted in two distinct waves separated when detected by seismographs. Separate arrival times can be used to determine the location of the epicenter.

S waves are transverse shear wave like a wave on the pull rope. Material moves up and down or from side to side. Like the P waves, S waves also spread to the curved trajectory.

S waves can only be spread through a solid medium for liquid and gaseous medium can not sustain shear stress. In the earth, the rate of increase of the S wave about 3.4 kilometers (2.1 miles) per second at the earth's surface up to 7.2 kilometers (4.5 miles) per second near the limit of the earth's core. S waves cause the dots on solid medium moves back and forth perpendicular to the direction of the spread of the wave. When the S waves move, these waves move rock particles outward and push the particles perpendicular to the wave trajectory. It results in the first period roling associated with earthquakes.

The second type of seismic waves are surface waves. Surface waves sometimes resemble waves in the water that moves up and down the earth's surface.
Animation of seismic waves. (Picture from: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/)
This animation shows the seismic waves generated by the 2002 Denali Fault earthquake. P-waves are shown in red; S-waves are shown in blue; Surface waves are shown in yellow. Phase arrival times are indicated on the vertical (Z) seismograms displayed at the top of the animation.

PFO: Pinyon Flat Observatory, California
SSPA: Standing Stone, Pennsylvania
CTAO: Charter Towers, Australia
DBIC: Dimbokro, Cote d'Ivoire
LBTB: Lobatse, Botswana

This animation is running 100 times faster than the waves actually traveled. Animation of PC program Seismic Waves written by Alan Jones.

Surface wave propagates in the Earth's surface at a rate of approximately 3.5 to 3.9 kilometers per second and slower than body waves. Because the surface wave has a low frequency, long duration of propagation, the width and amplitude of the surface wave is a kind of the most destructive seismic waves. Surface waves move the rock on man-made structures of the building foundation.

Surface wave consists of Rayleigh waves and Love waves. Rayleigh waves are surface waves similar to the rise and deployment of water surface waves. The existence of these waves was predicted long ago by a British physicist Lord Rayleigh in 1885. He was the first to express mathematically the existence of these waves.

Rayleigh waves traveling through the free surface in the form of elastic solids in the earth. The movement of these waves is a combination of longitudinal compression and dilation which then produce an elliptical motion at points on the surface of the earth. In all seismic waves, Rayleigh waves most often (all the time) to spread out and produce a long-duration waves on a seismograph.

Meanwhile, Love waves are surface waves that cause horizontal shifting of the earth surface. The word "Love" is used in the name of the wave is taken from the name of AEH Love. He was a British seismologists who first predicted the existence of these waves and mathematical modeling in 1911.

Love waves are usually spread a little faster than the Rayleigh wave. Love waves spread when a solid medium near the Earth's surface has a vertical elastic properties are diverse. Medium shift entirely by Love waves perpendicular to the direction of the spread of the wave. Energy deployment Love waves produce strong record on seismic stations. *** [GUN GUN GUNAWAN | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 13092012]

Ozone and Life on Earth

Ozone (O3) is a molecule composed and bonded of three oxygen atoms. Bonds between the oxygen atoms in the ozone molecule is rather weak compared to the oxygen molecule consists of two atoms (O2), so one of the three oxygen atoms easily escape and react with other molecules.

Ozone was first discovered by Christian Friedrich Schonbein in 1840. Naming ozone is derived from the Greek, ozein meaning smell. Ozone is known as a gas that has no color.

The use of ozone has been performed for more than a century ago. Ozone is used for various purposes, ranging from clean drinking water, sterilization of raw food materials, to elaborate a variety of toxic organic compounds contained in wastewater. In the field of medicine, ozone is more often used after the discovery of the ozone producing equipment for medical sterilization by J Hansler in the mid-20th century. However, ozone is a toxic substance. This gas is very reactive and corrosive (rapidly cause corrosion on metal) and hazardous to human health if inhaled in large quantities.

Ozone is found naturally in the stratosphere. Approximately ninety percent of Earth's ozone is in the stratosphere. Stratosphere is one of the layers of the earth's atmosphere at an altitude between 20-50 kilometers above the earth's surface. The ozone layer in the stratosphere was first discovered in 1913 by Charles Fabry (1867-1945) and Henri Buisson.

The ozone layer in the stratosphere naturally formed mainly through a process fotodisosiasi where the sun has a very important role in this process. Ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun was able to break an oxygen molecule (O2) to form two single oxygen atom. Then every single oxygen atom is bonded to an oxygen molecule to form a molecule of ozone (O3).
Diagram illustrating the ozone-oxygen cycle. (Picture from: http://commons.wikimedia.org/)
The presence of beneficial ozone in the stratosphere protects the earth from the dangers of ultraviolet emission (UV) excessive sun. This ozone protects life on earth by absorbing harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Because it is protecting the ozone in the stratosphere that is also called good ozone.

Ozone in the stratosphere absorbs ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun. This radiation has a wavelength below 400 nanometers. The spectrum of this radiation (located at wavelengths between 290 nanometers and 320 nanometers) or better known as UV-B radiation. Increasing doses of UV-B radiation reaching the earth resulting in increased cases of skin cancer, lower yields, and ruin the lives of plankton and fish larvae.

Reaction formation and decomposition of ozone occurs naturally in a state of balance and continuously for centuries. Most of the ozone is formed and decomposes in the equatorial region where there are tropical rainforests were quite extensive. By nature, nature has arranged transport phenomena that will bring the gases contained in the earth's surface to the layer above it and distribute ozone into the higher latitudes, and eventually accumulates in the polar regions.
The process of ozone depletion. (Picture from: http://sopf.org/)
However, the balance of the formation and decomposition of ozone has been disrupted due to the increase of ozone-depleting substances or materials (ozone depleting substances / ODS), so the rate of decomposition of ozone faster than the rate of its formation. Damaging substances / thinning of the ozone layer in the lower stratosphere is produced by human activities on the earth's surface. These substances are capable of spreading to the stratosphere. This causes a decrease in the concentration of ozone in the stratosphere.
Ozone depleting substances contain some combination of chemical elements chlorine, fluorine, bromine, carbon, and hydrogen are called halozarbon. The compound consists of only chlorine, fluorine and carbon called cholorofluorocarbon (CFC). CFCs are widely used because it is stable with low toxicity and non-flammable. Because CFCs have chemical and physical properties suitable for coolant, solvents, and heat insulation, this material is widely used by industrial refrigerator, AC (air conditioner), gas booster (spray), foam plastic, fire extinguisher material, the solvent in the industry, and electronic equipments cleaning. If this material is released into the atmosphere by atmospheric transport phenomena, these materials will be lifted and diffused into the stratosphere. In this layer the material will be dissociated by ultraviolet radiation from the sun and breaks down into chlorine gas was very active damaging the ozone layer.
The climate system is complex, meaning that the ozone hole does indirectly alter the surface temperature and climate of the Earth. (Picture from: http://theconversation.edu.au/)
The monitoring of the ozone layer in the stratosphere has long made the developed countries since 1957. In 1985, researchers from the UK found a reduction in the total amount of ozone in the stratosphere during the Antarctic spring. In 1987, a monitoring station in Antarctica recorded a decrease in the total amount of ozone to be less than half the amount of ozone measured in 1970. This drastic decrease in ozone depletion has caused or is called the ozone hole (ozone hole).
Global emissions of ozone-depleting chemicals (CFCs, halons, HCFCs, and others) and their non-ozone depleting substitutes (HFCs) from 1950 to 2050, expressed as Gigatonnes of CO2-equivalent per year. The blue hatched regions indicate the emissions that would have occurred, in the absence of the Montreal Protocol, with 2–3% annual production increases in all ozone-depleting chemicals. Shown for reference are emissions for the range of CO2 scenarios from the IPCC Special Report on Emission Scenarios. (Picture from: http://theconversation.edu.au/)
The discovery of the ozone hole has prompted the formulation of an international treaty known as the Vienna Convention 1985. The agreement aims to protect the environment and human health due to the depletion of the ozone layer. Then in 1987 established the Montreal Protocol. In the protocol was approved reduction and elimination of the production and consumption of CFCs, halon, and other similar substances that contribute to depleting the ozone layer. *** [THE CONVERSATION | SAVE OUR PLANET FOUNDATION | DEDE NURROSYID | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 13092012]

Pastor charged with molesting 10-year-old: How does this happened in the Pentecostal, Sanctified church?



How does a pastor of a Pentecostal church get possessed to molest a child?   Evidently, every church that says it's Pentecostal is not full gospel, because full gospel means sanctification, that's completely living a holy lifestyle with the evidence of speaking in tongues.  The church leader should be without lust and have sense enough not to touch an innocent child.   If Pastor Henry Lackey is guilty, then he needs to repent just like a ton of others who have been allegedly accused of messing around with children.   

Saints of God, whether it happened 4 years ago or not, the question is, how does something like this occur in the Pentecostal church?  If you have a sign on the church that reads, Pentecostal, Holiness, Full Gospel, Fire Baptized, you should be so full of the Holy Ghost, you would not even think of molesting children.  This also goes for any other denomination, it-is-sick-to mess around with children.   If Lackey is guilty of child molestation, this means he has been living a double life.  If you are a pastor whom is supposed to be sanctified and you have the demon to molest children, then you should resign and allow the saints of God to cast the Devil out of you, because God does not want any child molesters in the pulpit preaching His Word.  Pastors of full gospel ministries must have the fear of God, but it seems like some of them have been backsliding while yet preaching God's Word.   Folks, it is time to not just call on congregations to be holy, but most importantly, God desires that each and every pastor live a life of purity, so that his or her members can humbly submit to them and follow their holy lifestyle.  Matthew 5:48 says, 'Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.'  Do you know what that means, that means?   It means living your life without sin and pastors or any other type of minister really need to focus on that scripture, because that is God's commandment.   Yes, we may make human flaws, but to mess around with children is another thing.  It is time to get preachers whom lust after children out of the pulpit.  

Pastor Henry Lackey is the pastor of Freewill Pentecostal Church in Gwinnett County.  In the meantime, we pray he has repented for what he did 4 years ago and prepared to plead guilty.  Furthermore, we pray for this child whom was allegedly violated by Pastor Lackey.

Pastor charged with molesting 10-year-old


AUBURN, Ga. —
A local pastor was arrested on Tuesday on accusations that he molested a child.

Henry Lackey serves as the pastor at the Freewill Pentecostal Church in Buford. His accuser came forward earlier this month, but the alleged molestation occurred four years ago when the child was 10 years old, police said.

Lackey’s wife hurried out of the church’s Tuesday night services with their adult son without comment...Read full article, here.
