Feds Stockpile Burn Treatments in Case of Nuclear Attack
(CNSNews.com) - "The detonation of an improvised nuclear device would produce intense heat, resulting in many patients with severe burns," says a September 30 news release from the Department of Health and Human Services.
The announcement says HHS has contracted for the development of "four novel products to treat severe thermal burns."
The products will boost the number of treatment options in case of disaster, and they'll also be used in "routine" burn care situations.
The four treatments -- one commercially available right now and three in development -- "will be added to the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) or managed by vendors to help protect people from burn injuries resulting from radiological and nuclear threats," HHS said.
The announcement notes that burns stemming from a nuclear attack may require surgial skin grafting that is "resource intensive and technically demanding." And with only 127 burn centers nationwide, a "mass casualty" incident could "easily overwhelm the nation’s burn care infrastructure."
“To protect health and save lives from the impacts of multiple types of disasters, we have to address critical challenges in burn care,” said Robin Robinson, Ph.D., director of HHS's Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). “These products are intended to offer greater options and help create a continuum of care in a mass casualty incident; together they have the potential to eliminate resource-intensive steps, shorten hospital stays and improve patient outcomes.”
The announcement comes at a time of heightened concern about national security in general and the threat of foreign terrorist fighters in particular. MORE

Yesterday, Sept. 30th, a massive plume of dark plasma rose up from the sun's western limb and erupted. (East and west are opposite on the Sun.)
According to Spaceweather.com, NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on Oct. 2nd when a co-rotating interaction region (CIR) is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field. CIRs are transition zones between fast- and slow-moving solar wind streams. Solar wind plasma piles up in these regions, producing shock waves that do a good job of sparking auroras.
We may have escaped this one, but it's only a matter of time till Earth experiences another Carrington event.

A Prophetic Word from Jerusalem - September 29th
Maurice Sklar Ministries
September 29, 2015
We have been here in Israel for over a week now and we have been having an amazing time with the Lord here. Here is the most recent Word I have received while here.
A Prophetic Word:
The LORD says, "War is coming against Israel! Just as I have clearly spoken in My Word, and just as I have confirmed through my holy servants the true Prophets, I will hold it back no longer. You say to Me, "What do all of these signs converging together this month mean? Many of My church are in fear, thinking only of doomsday and despair. Some leaders are trying to tell fortunes and predict days and times, thinking that I must do what they say when they predict it. Some are making millions of dollars by merchandising and sensationalizing these events to the point it is idolatry and distraction instead of sound prophetic ministry. I (the LORD) am far greater than your false prognosticators and charlatans. Do not follow after those deceivers - you must judge them and their ministries by their fruits and take everything you hear and judge it according to My Word."
To My beloved Bride: Look and see the signs in the heavens and upon the earth. Notice them, but don't focus on them! Keep your eyes on Me! I am the LORD, not the sun, moon, or stars. I am greater than any event that has or will come to shake the heavens and the earth. Many of My people are crying out to Me in prayer for clarity and guidance right now. So, I will answer you... I will explain to you a little bit of what is shortly to come to pass....So your heart will not be troubled...
I am announcing to the world through these four red moons these things:
1. The Times of the Gentiles are coming to an end. The end of Adam's dominion time-lease upon earth is nearly over. The time of Jacobs' Trouble: the Tribulation period is about to begin. BUT HE (JACOB) SHALL BE SAVED OUT OF IT. It is in this time that I will sovereignly cause all the Jews to return to their home, Eretz Israel. I will shake them out like a tablecloth that a lady would take outdoors and shake all the crumbs out of it by flapping it into the wind. But not one crumb will perish. All shall be returned. Many of my people are hidden in the nations that have descended from the 10 lost tribes. They are not "lost" to Me. I KNOW THEM ALL. They shall return, along with all the descendants of Judah and Levi. No man knows who or where they are, but I DO. The time has come when the rest of the family will come home to the land I promised them.
2. Satan knows that his time is short. War is coming to the Middle East. It will bring every nation into it before it is all over. Israel is my mousetrap, and Jerusalem is the cheese. Israel is also my anvil on which I will judge the nations. Prepare your hearts, for peace will be taken from the earth. For 70 years I gave the Western nations peace and prosperity after World War 2. That was because of what the United States did along with the Allied forces by defeating Nazi Germany and rescuing My people Israel from extermination, and then paving the way for Israel to be reborn as a nation in 1948.
3. Yesterday's moon signals the beginning of the final restoration of Israel. No matter how hard the enemy attacks, he will be destroyed before Me. For I am standing UP now as the LORD of Hosts to fight for her. And when this is over, all her enemies will be dust under her feet. It will be bloody. It will be painful. It will be with great losses both to Israel and her enemies. But, for each Israeli Jewish person, their enemies will pay with 1,000 of their souls when they try to attack her. Beware! You CANNOT and WILL not succeed as Israel's enemy.
4. The outcome in the coming battles and wars against Israel, I will restore more and more of the land to her that I promised to Abraham. Until finally, all that I promised will be theirs forever when I return to establish My Kingdom and rule from the throne of David in Jerusalem forever.
5. I am coming for My Bride, My faithful children who are waiting for Me in this Midnight Hour. But you say, "I have heard that for so long. And, oh, another prophet coming with the Rapture message. I am tired of hearing it. After all, I have heard it my whole life. So, is this yet another "boy crying wolf" prophecy?! I have been disappointed too many times." But, Beloved, if I stretch out time to allow more souls to come to Me, and so I can bring more Bridal lamps to their full oil and light, does this offend you?! If it does, you are only thinking of yourself and not others that I have long patience for until all have come in. Then, the Shofar will sound! Do not lose your Blessed Hope for I am at the doors RIGHT NOW! Watch and Pray! Do not let disappointment and bitterness quench out your Hope. Remember, I CANNOT LIE! I AM COMING FOR YOU, MY DEARLY BELOVED BRIDE!
6. Do not get caught up in conspiracies and Internet social media nonsense. Think to yourself, 'is this filling me with hope or fear?' If your response to it is fear, then it is not what I am saying to you. The world will indeed experience the worst seven years of judgments and My Wrath. But, I have not appointed you to that, but to obtain eternal joy in My heavenly Kingdom, as it is written:
Luke 21:36: Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Revelation 22:20-21: 0 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
God bless you from Jerusalem, Dear Ones!

8.3 Earthquake Strikes Just Off Chile
Wednesday at 3:54 p.m. Pacific a massive temblor struck just off the coast of Chile disrupting communications. People ran out into the streets as buildings swayed. At least have been killed as a result of earthquake-related incidents including heart attacks, roof collapse and rockslide. One million people were evacuated along Chile's coast.
A tsunami warning is still in effect for southern California and Hawaii as per the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. Waves 15.5 feet high slammed into Chile, but the worst of the tsunami is expected to focus on French Polynesia and Tahiti. Hilo, HI might see waves as high as 3.2 feet.
The epicenter was shallow at 4.8 miles. USGS preliminarily reported the temblor at mag. 7.9, which was quickly upgraded to 8.3. Almost immediately at least 5 strong aftershocks – from 5.8 to 7.0 – hammered the same area.
The Coming Storm – prophecy
This dream happened in the Winter and I was going to send it to you then but I didn't understand it fully. I knew it was prophetic. But recently God released the full meaning and told me to send it to you.
There was a storm raging in the dream which appeared like a storm occurring in the atmosphere. There was thunder and lightening with multiple colors in the atmosphere (like the Northern lights) but mainly red-ish and as it came near, one could see there was a windstorm sweeping on earth so severe that one was in serious danger if out in the elements.
In the dream, there were two people running towards a car parked in a garage for safety before the violent winds would hit. One was a woman who was pregnant and looked past her due date. The other was a child (running from another direction and not hers) who was around age ten to twelve, very strong, and had a meanness to him. I sensed that everyone who had been around him were afraid and the term "bully" came to mind in the dream.
INTERESTING NOTE: When Brenda sent in her prophetic dream, she hadn't titled it like most people do. After reading it several times, it it just popped into mind to call it "The Coming Storm". When looking for something to illustrate her dream, this picture was the first one to come up and thought perfect, just perfect!
In searching for the painter, it literally took one hit. Wanted to give the artist credit so typed into Google angel storm field and look what immediately came up – more specifically, check the title: "Coming Storm". It's a painting by Danny Hahlbohm. Isn't this just something?
Both of these people reached the car and got inside, the woman with great difficulty due to her advanced pregnancy. The child jumped in the passenger seat at the same time, just before the front edge of the storm and the severe winds hit the house.
That was when I woke up. I asked God what it meant and I knew the woman represented the Church and the fullness of time. I was unsure of the boy but I knew he was the cause of great trouble. I thought perhaps it represented Satan's work in the world. But when God brought the dream to my mind again, I realized the boy represented Satan's power and how he was using our current President and his Administration to do evil... and what the dream meant.
God showed me that the Church was near the end of this age and it would seem as we were left in the chaos too long (the appearance of the woman being past due). But He reminded me although the storms in the atmosphere were raging around her, she was out of danger when the worst of the storm arrived with the terrible heat and winds destroying everything in their path.
He then caused me to understand the boy and the evil he represented. For in the dream I knew he was the reason for the storm. But God showed me while it seemed they would be riding together in the car (although I never saw it out of the garage), the woman was in the driver's seat... not the boy. Also, the woman obviously was full grown and the evil boy was not yet a teenager. The woman was not only in the driver's seat and in control but the evil represented by the child could not match up with the fully mature Church.
I believe God reminded me to send this to you today because the storm is about to be released but He is reminding us that... although the Church goes through at least part of the storm, if not all of it... He is in control of the times and seasons. And that while evil seems to prevail in this time, it (and the people it represents) will seem to have power for awhile but in Truth... God and His people are the ultimate victors. We are not to let the enemy of our souls deceive us into thinking the war has been won and that he is the victor.
I've continued to encourage friends and family to stock up, even if they can only afford rice and beans. I can't remember if I told you about my vision when we were corresponding quite often.
I've had only two visions in my life, both in the 1990s. The first one came true, the second has yet to come true but He reminded me of it recently. I was driving the By-pass that goes around our town (in real time) and as I looked to my left, it suddenly looked desolate, as if I were the only car on the road and the only person outside. I was passing a favorite restaurant of ours at the time and in my spirit, God told me there would come a day when the restaurant would be closed because they could not get any food... a combination of supply and trucks not being able to transport the food. Please see Holly's 2015 article: When Trucks Stop, America Stops & Massive Mega-Quake Could Destroy Pacific Northwest.
The vision was brief and almost immediately I was back in full traffic but it was so very real. That same restaurant still exists even though other stores in the shopping center have come and gone.
