Draconid meteor shower: This meteor shower is usually one of the least dramatic of annual meteor showers with only two known meteor storms: 1933 and 1946. It is interesting however, because of the Revelation 12 sign with Revelation 12:3, 4 noting a dragon with a tail that cast a third of the stars to the ground.

Most commentaries believe the word 'stars' in this context means the angels that rebelled or 'fell' with Satan.

Others, however, including Strong's Concordance, interpret the word 'stars' as 'aster,' or an actual star. In this context, it could be a meteor storm.

I think it is interesting that note has been made that the Draconid meteor shower is different from other meteor showers in one respect, it is visible beginning at sunset (beginning of Sabbath on the 6th), unlike other storms which are not visible until the wee hours of the morning.

FLASHBACK FEB 2016, Watch for the Day: Draco is the Paired Sign of Revelation 12

In David Wilkerson's book The Vision (1968), he wrote this on page 40 under the section titled Strange Signs in the Heavens:

I believe the prophets either saw cosmic storms of such magnitude that they appeared to earth people as balls of fire blazing through the sky, leaving behind a vaporlike trail -- or a rain of falling stars or comets racing through earth's atmosphere.

I am NOT saying that will happen. Just sayin' I find the intersection of the Draconid meteor shower on a Sabbath following the Revelation 12 sign interesting, and I happened to remember that David Wilkerson wrote this. And considering the annual Draconid shower is usually considered boring, it would certainly be surprising if it was anything but this year. However, SETI scientists are not predicting an exciting year.

THIS COMING DAY OF ATONEMENT AND TIM TEBOW

Here are two links as to why I am watching the upcoming Day of Atonement, on September 29th and September 30th.

Kieland Edmonds:

Revelation 12 Fulfilled: The Midnight Cry

Daniel Matson:

Sound the Jubilee on the Day of Atonement 2017

And here is something to keep in mind and that is what has been happening all this week with the NFL.

On Sunday, multiple teams decided to kneel in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. For the purpose of this post Kaepernick's defiance is not so important, but the hypocrisy of NFL's Roger Goodell is.

Goodell has ignored not only the NFL's own rulebook, which outlines how players are to be on the field and respecting the American flag when the anthem is played, but he has ignored how other players have wanted to make statements. He has shut those statements down, but on players who want to take a knee in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick's temper tantrum, Goodell has insisted that the players have a right to take a knee -- it's their right to free speech.

The Pittsburgh Steelers coach apparently took it a bit further and wanted ALL of his players to express Colin Kaepernick's viewpoint, whether they agree with Kaepernick or not.

It is the equivalent of the LGBT's 'Bake the Cake!'

Translation: You WILL have the same opinion as me!

But when Tim Tebow wanted to take a knee, he was mocked for it. Goodell did not defend Tebow taking a knee as his right to free speech.

Two men, Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick, each took a knee. Tebow, to give thanks to God; Kaepernik because he hates cops.

Both men found themselves eventually without jobs as quarterbacks for the NFL. In Tebow's case, most players had the attitude of 'good riddance.' In Kaepernick's case, most players think he's being persecuted for his political beliefs.

Now, NFL players and their coaches and their owners are taking a knee, not in solidarity with Tim Tebow and his honor to God, but in defiance with Colin Kaepernik and his hatred of police officers.

The Revelation 12 sign occurred on September 22nd and 23rd.

On September 24th, thru no fault of his own, Tim Tebow is in the news as the best example of Roger Goodell and the NFL's hypocrisy when it comes to allowing players freedom of speech, especially by 'taking a knee.' One was denied the freedom of speech, the other was not only protected in his freedom of speech but now other players are being FORCED to agree with Kaepernick, whether they want to or not.

Are we being given a sign?

What is atonement?

Is it not to accept Jesus Christ and His death on the cross and His resurrection from the grave as atonement for our sins?

Is the sign right before our very eyes?

KNOW YOUR MEDICATIONS

Dear Readers -- Let me step away from the usual topics I usually post about and write about something else for this one post.

I have spent years working in the medical field, as a medical transcriptionist (for a cardiologist, a dermatologist, and an oncologist), a receptionist for more than one doctor's office, but mostly as a pharmacy tech (not the same thing as a pharmacist, but an aide to a pharmacist).

A lot of Americans receive their prescriptions from a mail-order pharmacy. A lot of convenience in that, right?

(Since I don't want to type he/she throughout this post or fail to use some 'correct' gender-neutral pronoun thus triggering some gender-terrified individual, the doctor for the purposes of this post is male.)

CHECK YOUR BOTTLE

Always check your bottle when it arrives. If the medication is not the one you were expecting, call your doctor's office.

If the medication has a set of instructions that are different than how you have been taking it, call your doctor's office.

Do NOT assume that the doctor (A) must have changed the Rx without informing you but he was probably too busy to let you know, (B) must know about the changes because his name is on the bottle, or (C) must have told you he was going to change the Rx and you must have forgotten and are too embarrassed to call.

You do not have to speak to the doctor, just tell the receptionist you wish to leave a message for the nurse.

INFORMATION FOR THE NURSE:

If you actually get to talk to the nurse, then great! Tell her, "Hi, my name is GardenGirl, and I just received my prescription from the XYZ company and it's not what I was expecting. I was expecting to receive simvastatin (generic Zocor), but got atorvastatin (generic Lipitor) instead. I want to see if Dr. Genius changed my prescription because I had not been told that that was going to be changed."

You get the idea. Let the nurse know you've received a medication you were not expecting and what it is, what you were expecting, and that you were not apprised of any changes and just want to make sure that the new medication is correct.

If you do not get to talk to a nurse but have to leave a message, give the information I have noted above AND be sure and include your date of birth and a return phone number so the nurse doesn't have to take time to look those things up.

Please, do not assume that Dr. Genius changed your Rx without notifying you. Please, do not assume that you are 'bothering' Dr. Genius to call and verify that your Rx is correct. If Dr. Genius is inconvenienced, so be it -- avoiding horrible side effects from taking the wrong medication is well worth any 'inconvenience' on his behalf. Furthermore, Dr. Genius wants to make his Mercedes payment, not pay a lawsuit lawyer, so if he has his act together, you will probably have your answers by the end of the day.

HOW COULD A MIX-UP HAPPEN?

Most pharmacies will have protocols and procedures in place so that errors in filling the Rx won't take place. Like Dr. Genius, pharmacies do not want to pay lawsuit lawyers either.

When an Rx arrives at a pharmacy there will be at least two humans involved in the filling of that Rx. Once an Rx arrives from a doctor, it is usually the pharmacy technician (also called a pharmacy tech) who will scan in the Rx and then translate it into the computer. For example: GardenGirl, DOB 01/01/1960, "Take one Lipitor 10mg po b.i.d." Dr. Genius. I would input the name of the patient and use the patient's DOB to make sure it is the correct patient. If the pharmacy happens to have two patients with the same name  (and it is possible) then the tech must verify with the doctor's name or some other identifier with the patient, such as an address or date of birth. The Rx reads that Dr. Genius wants GardenGirl to take one 10mg tablet of Lipitor (generic atorvastatin) by mouth two times a day.

Once a tech has entered the information, the pharmacist will visually view the scanned in Rx on his computer screen, verify that the pharmacy tech has entered the correct patient, the correct instructions, and the correct Dr. Genius. Once the pharmacist approves the Rx, his initials are added to the Rx label, the Rx prints out of the computer, the tech takes that printout, pulls the correct medication, attaches the correct label and accompanying medication information and sends it to the pharmacist. The pharmacist scans a barcode and a pill image will appear on the screen and the pharmacist will open the bottle (unless it is sent out sealed) and make sure the image and the pill match. If it does, it is sent out on its merry way.

It is an efficient system and it worked well in the pharmacy I worked for. The breakdown in this system can occur when an Rx arrives and it is scanned in under the wrong patient name. For example Garden G. Girl has an Rx from Dr. Genius already in the system. An Rx arrives for Garden Girl from Dr. Smart. The pharmacy tech scans in Garden Girl SELECTING GARDEN G. GIRL instead of the Garden Girl without the initial, and the pharmacist doesn't catch it. Now Garden G. Girl has the Rx meant for Garden Girl scanned into her account and it will have Dr. Genius name on the bottle instead of Dr. Smart. It can happen.

There are certainly other ways that errors can occur, but this would be one that would be difficult for any pharmacy to argue can't happen.

SIDE EFFECTS OF STATIN DRUGS

Let me talk about the side effects of taking certain medications.

Let me begin by saying that I am not a doctor. I would never go to someone who is experiencing side effects from a medication and attempt to make a diagnosis based on the sum of the side effects. Instead, there is nothing wrong with knowing that certain medications can cause certain side effects, and if you should experience some side effects it is perfectly okay to ask Dr. Genius about those side effects.

Statins are a group of drugs prescribed by doctors to try and lower cholesterol. They mainly interrupt the ability of the liver to manufacture cholesterol. Cholesterol can build up in the arteries forming plaque, which decreases blood flow, and plaque can harden, leading to hardening of the arteries. This condition, particularly in combination with other lifestyle choices (like smoking) are believed to increase the risk of stroke or heart attack. There's a little more to the mechanics of all this, but that's the general gist of it.

Doctors believe that statins reduce these risks. And because many doctors believe that statins are completely safe, they don't hesitate to prescribe them.

If you take statins and you start experiencing muscle pain or weakness, you need to notify your doctor and make sure your pain or weakness is NOT related to your taking statins.

RHABDOMYOLOSIS:

If you are someone who tends to 'pull himself (or herself) up by the bootstraps' and power through any pain or weakness and wouldn't dream of calling to let the doctor know, then at least be aware that if your urine turns a brown color, like a tea or a cola color, then you need to notify your doctor ASAP.

These symptoms collectively COULD indicate a condition called rhabdomyolosis. Again, I am not a doctor. I would never tell someone that is experiencing these symptoms that he or she has rhabdomyolosis, but I would certainly encourage them to notify the doctor and ask the doctor to reassure him or her that it is NOT rhabdomyolosis, and that would need to be done sooner rather than later.

There are three types of muscles in the body: cardiac, smooth and skeletal. Rhabdo- means rod-shaped, myo- means muscle, and losis means 'abnormal condition,' so rhabdomyolosis means an 'abnormal condition of the rod-shaped muscles.' With rhabdomyolosis, it is the skeletal muscles that are affected, and symptoms of pain and weakness can affect any muscle that is attached to any bone. This will make the person feel achy all over, as if they have worked out really hard. The muscle aches are similar to how one feels with the flu.

But it is more than just feeling achy. The achiness can mean that muscle fibers are being destroyed, leaching muscle cell contents into the bloodstream. Hence the dark urine. The dark urine, in conjunction with the muscle aches and pain and with the taking of statins, should prompt immediate notification to Dr. Genius of your symptoms. If Dr. Genius is out of the office or it is a weekend, GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM. Rhabdomyolosis can be life-threatening and needs prompt medical attention.

When you go to Dr. Genius or to the ER, TAKE THE BOTTLE OF MEDICINE YOU HAVE BEEN TAKING WITH YOU AND SHOW THE DOCTOR WHO IS CARING FOR YOU. DO NOT LEAVE IT BEHIND. IT WILL SPEAK VOLUMES TO THE DOCTOR WHO IS TRYING TO EVALUATE YOUR CONDITION.

A blood test will look for elevated levels of CK. Not every patient who has an elevated CK reading will have rhabdomyolosis, but every patient who has rhabdomyolosis will have an elevated CK reading, usually 10 times the normal level.

A urine test will also detect CK. The urine will test positive for blood, but there won't usually be red blood cells in the urine. If there are RBCs, it most likely won't be from the rhabdomyolosis, but perhaps from another condition.

The dark color in the urine that is going to trigger a positive reading for blood without blood necessarily being present is going to be myoglobin, a component of muscle cells. The myoglobin is what is leached into the bloodsteam and the kidneys attempt to filter it out. I say 'attempt' because yes, some of the myoglobin will be excreted and this shows up as the abnormal brown color in urine. But not all of the myoglobin is excreted. Instead, because it has somewhat of a fatty nature, it can clog the kidneys, and if the kidneys are not monitored for this, renal failure can occur.

As bad as this is, it can get worse. The skeletal muscles can detach from the bones. In some patients, the muscles can slough off in places. Google the pictures sometime and you'll see what I am talking about.

An ultrasound might be ordered. This will be to look at the muscles and see if the composition of the muscle tissue is now in disarray. An ultrasound can be definitive for a correct rhabdomyolosis diagnosis.

Hospitalization is not at all unusual as a step in treating rhabdomyolosis. An IV will help keep you hydrated and the kidneys flushed as the body attempts to overcome the statins and right itself.

Sharing this information with you is NOT meant to scare you, but to inform you to not ignore any unexpected pain or weakness or brown urine while taking statins. To ignore these symptoms can lead to catastrophic organ failure, and there are reports of patients who have died from statin-induced rhabdomyolosis. Baychol was a statin that was pulled from the markets years ago because it was indicated as the cause of multiple rhabdomyolosis deaths.

NEVER stop taking statins without consulting your doctor, particularly if you've been on them a long time. Sudden cessation of statin intake can have its own side effects, such as ischemic-stroke. Instead, talk with Dr. Genius about your concerns about the side effects of taking a statin drug. If the two of you come to the conclusion (or you feel large and in charge and demand to be taken off it), it is better to come off the statin by 'tritating' down, which means withdrawing in stages, and Dr. Genius can set that up.

The chances are good, however, that if you are NOT experiencing any pain or weakness, you are tolerating the statin you've been prescribed pretty well. There are numerous studies that back up the claim that statins are helpful to a large segment of the population.

Nevertheless, there is a segment of the population that can suffer debilitating side effects, side effects that can kill them if they are ignored.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE NOT THE PATIENT BUT SOMEONE ELSE IN YOUR FAMILY:

So far, I have addressed this post to you as if you were the patient that this happened to. Sometimes, this happens to a family member. He or she has taken a medication that has produced noticeable side effects. It can be very difficult to convince him or her that he or she needs to contact their doctor or go to an urgent care or go to the emergency room. Sometimes family members, particularly elderly family members who are prone to stubbornness, will be very difficult to persuade that they must seek care. Most of our elderly family members were raised in a generation in which it was seen as a shame of some kind to go to seek medical help, OR he or she is convinced that if they will simply 'pull themselves up by their bootstraps' they will be fine.

It is hard to decide if it is easier to simply knock that person over their head and let them wake up in the emergency room or to let them truly tough it out at home. Sometimes, other family members are NOT going to be helpful in making the case that someone should go and go now. I have no advice for you on this because each situation is different, but in some situations you may just have to 'steel' yourself that this person is bringing on his or her own death.

People who are experiencing side effects from medication fail to comprehend, sometimes, that their judgment is also impaired. After all, the brain is an organ, too. It is tempting to believe that just because you stopped taking the prescription that, of course, the side effects will stop, too. Sorry, but this is NOT necessarily the case.

Think of it like this: Say you want to grill some hamburgers. You put briquettes into your grill, put a little lighter fluid over them, then strike a match and toss it in. Whoosh! Up in flames! No one keeps lightning matches and tossing them in to keep that fire going if it is in full blaze. It's not needed. Stopping putting matches in doesn't make the flames go out. The matches are now irrelevant. That fire has now taken on a life of its own.

Or an even simpler object lesson: Once you've burned a pizza in the oven, you can't unburn it.

Just because you stop a medication that has caused side effects does NOT mean the side effects will go away. Because organs and their functions are interlinked, the side effects can cascade through those organs and it is good you stopped taking the medication that started the problem, but that is no guarantee that side effects won't continue. Or worse, escalate. Some patients who have survived rhabdomyolosis say that the muscle aches and pains have continued for weeks and months later.

Be aware of the potential side effects of any medications you are taking, not just statin drugs, and don't hesitate to tell your doctor if you experience anything unusual, or if you receive a medication from a pharmacy that is not what you were expecting -- that is the point of this post.

There is coming a day for all those who have called upon Jesus to save them and have their names written in the Lamb's Book of Life who will find themselves walking streets of gold and never sick again. May that be you. John 3:16, Revelation 22

Deadly Mexico City Earthquake Triggered Volcanic Eruption of Popocatepetl

Ditrianum: Quake Watch 20-24 Sep 2017, Possible M7+ Around 28th
GG note: Ditrianum is NOT predicting an earthquake in California but does mention that the 2 large quakes in Mexico have probably put pressure on California, and he parallels this setup as to the one very similar to what happened in 1906. He also notes that an earthquake could happen soon, OR it could be 3-4 years.

In addition, Ditrianum notes the planetary alignments of Sept 22, Sept 23, and Sept 24 (without mentioning the Revelation 12 sign) and notes earth will be in between 2 interplanetary resonances with SEPT 22 possibly the critical date. His post is dated SEPT 20, and he anticipates a 6 to a 6.5 in between SEPT 20-24. As you can see from Big Wobble's list, there have been at least three 6's in the time frame so far.

Big Wobble: 4 major quakes in 36 hours

SEPT 21: 6.4 Vanuatu
SEPT 20: 6.1 Honshu, Japan
SEPT 20: 6.1 New Zealand
SEPT 19: 7.1 Mexico

Ditrianum notes that about SEPT 28 there could be a magnitude 7 or 8, but couldn't possibly guess where.

Irma Is Being Described As A ‘Nuclear Hurricane’ That Has Left One Island ‘Practically Uninhabitable’

John McTernan: Hurricane Irma

Peace Process:

President Trump's vacation home, the 'Southern White House' at Mar-a-Lago, is in the path of Irma and has been evacuated.

'Trump, whose waterfront Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, could take a direct hit from the storm, has already approved emergency declarations for Florida . . . '

As readers of this blog know, this blog follows the confluence of the U.S. pushing Israel on the peace process, and we know that President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who Trump appointed in January to head his Mideast peace team, just returned from a meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu on that very subject.

FLASHBACK, OCT 1991:

Houston resident President George H.W. Bush began the ‘land for peace process’ in Israel on October 30, 1991.

Madrid Conference of 1991 (Wikipedia)

Houstonian G.H.W. Bush birthed the peace-process, Dallasite G.W. Bush birthed the two-state plan, Houston floods and Texas catastrophes

'The Perfect Storm' of October 1991, began as an area of low pressure off Canada, was forced south by a ridge, moving it over warmer waters, which birthed it into a hurricane (which was never named)that struck Massachusetts and Maine.

1991 Perfect Storm (Wikipedia):

'. . . more than 100 homes were affected in Maine, including the vacation home of then-President George H. W. Bush.'

Reports are that Hurricane Irma will be WORSE than Hurricane Andrew of 1992. Hurricane Andrew has a connection to the peace process as well.

Here is an excerpt from John McTernan's As America Has Done to Israel (2008):

On August 24, 1992, the Madrid Peace Conference moved to Washington, D.C. The nations involved felt the United States was a better location for continuing the negotiations. The United States representative was the Acting Secretary of State, Lawrence Eagleburger. The New York Times quoted Eagleburger about the opening of the talks as follows:

The peace talks were resuming "in the context of an Israeli Government that is prepared to be far more forth coming." He predicted that the issue of Palestinian self-rule in the Israeli-occupied territories would be the focus of discussion."

On August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew smashed into southern Florida, hitting Louisiana a few days later. Hurricane Andrew was the worst natural disaster, up to this time, ever to hit America. This storm left one hundred and eighty thousand homeless in Florida, and another twenty-five thousand homeless in Louisiana. . . . This was an awesome category five hurricane with top winds recorded at over 175 miles per hour. The winds were even stronger, but the hurricane destroyed the anemometer, the wind speed device, before the eye hit. The winds may have reached 200 miles per hour or higher! . . . Hurricane Andrew struck just a few hours before the Madrid peace conference in Washington, D.C.

Solar flares and earthquakes:

The sun has fired off 3 X-flares in the past few days.

SEPT 7: 3rd X-class solar flare: Major X1.3 flare erupts from Region 2673, CME produced

SEPT 6: Major X-class flare: X9.3 from geoeffective AR 2673, CME produced - the strongest flare of the current cycle

SEPT 6: Powerful, long-duration X2.2 solar flare erupts from geoeffective AR 2673

Some researchers believe that there is a correlation between strong solar flares that are earth-impacting and subsequent earthquakes.

BPEarthWatch noted what he believed to be the first earthquake resulting from the first solar flare. It was a 6.1 off the coast of Japan on September 7.

Earthquakes Begin / Another X-flare / CME

Now, this morning, we've had an 8.1 in Mexico near the Guatemalan border. Some reports are saying there are reports that it was felt as far north as Austin, TX.
