It is not illegal to own incandescent lightbulbs, but as of January 1st, it is now illegal to manufacture them. While doing my Internet rounds on Monday, I came across this graphic. . .

then this one noting the cost difference. . . .

So . . . I decided to write a post about this, but then discovered that Steve Coerper had already done so as a post to the 5Doves Forum. I am posting his thoughts in their entirety (with permission).

I don't know how well known the following is, but it's gonna hit home shortly here in the U.S. with possible worldwide repercussions.

Thomas Edison invented the first commercially practical incandescent light in 1879. This type of lighting revolutionized American life, as one might imagine. However, this type of lighting has been effectively legislated out of existence as of January 1, 2014. The replacement, a device known as a "compact fluorescent light" or CFL, contains mercury (which is toxic) and also emit dangerous levels of ultraviolet light. Searching the term "dangers of CFL lighting" will bring up plenty of information.

I see a spiritual side to this: God's Word is His light, and the entrance of His Word brings light (Psalm 119:105, 130). Because we have rejected His light, we are now getting toxic light in our homes. Because we made His Word "illegal" in our schools, courts, etc. it is now illegal to have safe and healthy incandescent lighting. (I was unable to find any health risks associated with incandescent lights; plenty with CFLs)

Not only is this, I believe, a frightening harbinger for the U.S. but I think there's a timeframe involved. Obviously, people aren't going to convert overnight from incandescent lights to CFLs. As the incandescent lights burn out, they will be replaced, and people will then discover that only CFLs are available.

The average amount of time an incandescent light bulb will last is 750 hours, which is just over 31 days of constant use. Assuming people leave lights generally off in the daytime, use them in the evening, and then turn lights out when they sleep, we're looking at about three months. If it's spiritually significant for the U.S. we will transition from healthy light to toxic light in just under 94 days. That takes us to .... early April.

I see dark days ahead, in more ways than one.



I then saw the article linked to at Drudge about the FDR Bible that went missing and was going to write about that, but then saw that Joseph Herrin had already done so.  His thoughts are quite interesting.

There seems to be a type of confirmation in the "FDR Bible event" as something similar happened a short time later -- another Bible went missing and the NY official had to be sworn in using an image of the Bible on an IPAD. Why? Because "a hard copy of the Bible could not be found."

Next in the series on DOUBLE PLAGUES is below this post. I address the role mass animal die-offs, including the recent deaths of thousands of cattle in South Dakota, have in judgment upon a nation as well as what it means to be turned over to Satan.

GG note: It is difficult to write about family situations without appearing like one is indulging in self-pity, but Kim manages in this post to avoid doing just that. Instead, she pulls out a really neat truth from what might appear otherwise to be a mundane Bible verse. How like the Word of God to have an encouraging nugget of truth (and encouragement in this instance) tucked away waiting to be found.
