    1. The most high is foiling all of your plans. He’s giving the earth back to his children…aka Blk ppl.

    1. BELIEVE and RECEIVE Jesus’ free gift of salvation:
      1 Corinthians 15: 1-4
      Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the GOSPEL which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are SAVED, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ DIED for our SINS according to the scriptures; And that he was BURIED, and that he ROSE again the third day according to the scriptures:
      The only hope we have is Jesus. Jesus is the answer. He’s the only answer, and He’s the only hope. And His return for us as His church is our only hope. That’s what the good news is.
      In fact, in 1 Thessalonians, the first epistle that the Apostle Paul wrote, he shares the gospel in the context of the Rapture in Chapter 4 of 1 Thessalonians, saying, for we believe that Jesus was crucified, buried, and rose again on the third day, and He’s coming back again one day. That’s the good news.
      RELIGION SAYS DO. JESUS CHRIST SAYS DONE!!
      Soon one life will be PAST and that which only was done for Jesus Christ will LAST!
      Ephesians 1:13-14
      13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
      14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
      2 Corinthians 11:3
      But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
      Do You Know God Personally? God LOVES you and offers a wonderful PLAN for your life.
      God’s Love
      “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”
      God’s Plan
      [Jesus speaking] “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly” [that it might be full and meaningful” (John 10:10).
      Why is it that most people are not experiencing the abundant life? Because…Man is SINFUL and SEPARATED from God. Therefore, he cannot know and experience God’s love and plan for his life.
      Man Is Sinful
      “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Man was created to have fellowship with God; but, because of his stubborn self-will, he chose to go his own independent way, and fellowship with God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin.
      Man Is Separated
      “The wages of sin is death” [spiritual separation from God] (Romans 6:23). Man is continually trying to reach God and the abundant life through his own efforts, such as a good life, philosophy, or religion – but he inevitably fails. The only way to bridge this gulf…
      He Died in Our Place
      “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
      He Rose From the Dead
      “Christ died for our sins…He was buried…He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures…He appeared to Peter, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred…” (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).
      He Is the Only Way to God
      “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me’” (John 14:6).
      This shows that God has bridged the gulf which separates us from Him by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for our sins. It is not enough just to know this…We must individually RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our lives.
      We Must Receive Christ
      “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12)
      We Receive Christ Through Faith
      “By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9).When We Receive Christ, We Experience a New Birth ( John 3:1-8).
      We Receive Christ by Personal Invitation
      [Christ speaking] “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3:20). Receiving Christ involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins and to make us what He wants us to be. Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. We receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of the will. All the work of salvation was done by Jesus Himself. He took upon Himself the punishment for our sins as well as the sins themselves, and went to the cross and paid for every sin that would ever be committed throughout history.
      WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE BORN AGAIN?…
      The phrase “born again” applies to people who have accepted Jesus as their Savior or Redeemer. The born again soul realizes that they are a sinner (Romans 3:23) and that the penalty for that sin is death (Romans 6:23). To rectify the circumstances, God sent His only Son to die in their place, to take the punishment for sin (Romans 5:8). After Jesus’ death, He arose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-6). Jesus is the only way to God (John 14:6) and He provides the blessing of salvation. Each person has the choice to receive or reject God’s gift through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9) and experience new birth (John 3:1-8).
      WHAT IS BIBLICAL REPENTANCE?
      Biblical repentance is God centered repentance comes from the greek word ‘METANOIA’ which means change of one’s mind and heart which imparts a new direction to the whole life.
      Repent (To repent, in relation to salvation, is to change your mind from unbelief to belief in Jesus Christ. To being dead in your sins to a new creature in Christ) and believe in the Gospel.
      The ABCs of Salvation:
      The A is for: Admit or acknowledge that you’ve sinned, that you need the Savior. Romans 3:10 says, “There is no one righteous, not even one.” Romans 3:23 tells us why. It’s because “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 6:23 says, “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
      The B very simply is for: Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord. Romans 10:9-10 says, “If you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved.”
      The C stands for: Call upon the name of the Lord. Or as Romans 10:9-10 also says, “If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Here’s why, “For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” Romans 10:13 tells us how. It says, “All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”

      So there you have it! The BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST is found all throughout the Gospel. You can’t preach the blood, without preaching the Gospel, and you can’t preach the Gospel without preaching the Blood. For the Bible clearly teaches salvation is by FAITH, without WORKS (Eph. 2:8,). Faith in what? FAITH IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST!
      Romans 3:25-28 make this clear:
      25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
      26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
      27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
      28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
      To be justified, or saved, a person’s faith must be wholly in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. This declares God the Just one. When a sinner is saved, he cannot boast about himself or his works. He’ll only brag upon Jesus who saved him from his sins!
      Sadly, in our modern age of apostasy, very few who claim to be Christians ever preach the blood of Jesus for salvation. But the simple Bible truth is, YOU CANNOT EVEN BE A CHRISTIAN UNLESS YOU ARE TRUSTING ONLY IN THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST!

    2. And the earth is Sandy Cheek’s dome with water above. That is the real reason the sky is blue.

    1. @John Mininger that would have been my thought, get some of the weight off, but that’s slow and tedious too, and there aren’t a lot of free container ships just around empty with all the port delays around the world, ships are backed up with cargo . Guess they found one though, or possibly several, as huge as this sucker is, though they don’t have to get them all off.

    2. @Space Lemur yeah many ships have gotten entirely too big for the aging canals (Panama too) capacity and original specifications.

    1. @Andy Smitty They would purchase oil from the us and Mexico, but to your raising price. The us has passed laws barring oil companies from raising prices dramatically over day to day periods.

    2. @jamus morrison sorry, wasn’t thinking too well last night, the can’t just unstuck this ship easily, reports say the balbus bow is buried 18 feet into the sand— wonder how far the stern is??

  1. Well, according to current marine traffic tracking website, it is still stuck, but apparently partially refloated so hopefully unstuck soon

    1. @rear speaker No, and refloated is also a term for freeing a grounded ship, obviously its no longer floating, or a portion of the ship is no longer floating, if its hung up on something.

  2. There’s definitely an Ocean’s 11 style heist going on… might just be the prep work for the big heist but George Clooney and Brad Pitt should definitely be monitored.

  3. The way this thing was pushed into the sides of the canal feels like a real life Monty Python animation.

    1. Besides oil tankers piling up behind it, companies are starting to go around Africa which eats a lot of gas

    1. @aleksander suur Measurements like inches and feet came around because they were/are practical. Everyday things are easier to measure and imagine using things we have on our person like limbs and other body parts. It’s objective, it’s not an opinion.

    2. @cwg73160 Well, they are not practical anymore, so can they go away already? They are getting retired anyway, no question about that, only thing to debate is how soon.

  4. ARE YOU Telling me that I have to wait another week for my Jigsaw puzzle I have ordered on Amazon…Hell No

    1. Your fine if you live in the U.S., Chinese shipments to Europe are stuck though as well as oil shipments to lots of places.

    1. Thanks Tom, I’m standing in Egypt where the dark God Cthulhu had used a container ship to block the Suez Canal. Back to you Tom.

  5. The guys terrible connection makes him impossible to understand.

    “The babahsgskelsb canal fhahgshhgd ship couldnt makebfnfjsgahakdh”
