Extreme Wildfires Update

The fire that won’t quit threatens more places in Northern New Mexico

Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year ‘tribulation.

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.

‘Time of the End’:

Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’(NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.

(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)

4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.

5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)

7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)

8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)

9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)

10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)

11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)

Acts 2:17-21 And it shall come to pass ‘in the last days’, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids ‘in those days’

The fire that won’t quit threatens more places in Northern New Mexico

Phill Casaus, The Santa Fe New Mexican Sat, April 30, 2022, 11:03 AM

Apr. 30—If this were a movie, it would’ve been titled Black Friday II, Return of the Disaster.

But unlike most sequels, this one was just as frightening, just as perilous — and potentially, just as destructive — as the original.

Vicious winds hurtling from the west combined with incendiary embers that could waft as far as a mile from their origination point put villages and homes in Northern New Mexico in danger once again Friday — just seven days after the same ugly elements combined to rip through areas of San Miguel and Mora counties and destroyed more than 160 homes.

The most recent damage done by the Calf Canyon and Hermits Peak fires Friday was difficult to fully assess, with crews working to save homes in the face of winds that neutered some of their best tools — airplanes and helicopters dropping water and flame retardant. By midafternoon, officials said west/northwest winds approaching 60 mph had pushed the fire into several new areas.

“It’s moving faster than we anticipated, and we still have not reached the peak of the wind,” Jayson Coil, strategic operations chief for the Hermits Peak and Calf Canyon Fire, said early Friday afternoon.

The Calf Canyon/Hermits Peak complex, estimated at nearly 75,280 acres Friday evening, raced two hours beyond projections in the afternoon. By Friday night, firefighters were battling at two different ends of the fire to keep it from pivoting north toward Mora and east to Storrie Lake. Officials expressed fears it could jump N.M. 518 heading east and nearly begged those who hadn’t heeded evacuation orders to do so immediately.

“A really bad day, like we saw last Friday,” said San Miguel County Sheriff Chris Lopez, whose deputies were charged with keeping people out of the fire area. “So, we’re here, and it’s worse than we planned.”

Mike Johnson, a spokesman for the firefighting efforts in the Calf Canyon and Hermits Peak Fire, said Canovas Canyon, Porvenir Canyon, El Porvenir, Lower Canyon Road, Gallinas, Trout Spring, A3 Road and Las Dispensas are under an evacuation order.

The fire is 33 percent contained and has about 965 personnel working in the area.

Johnson said crews have set up pumps and hoses in communities in the path of the fire in hopes of saving structures and homes.

“What they will do is they will start those pumps and hoses and sprinkler systems, and they will move back to an area where it’s safe for [firefighters],” Johnson said.

By Friday evening, concerns had grown great enough to prompt evacuations farther south, including United World College in Montezuma.

Spokesman Carl-Martin Nelson said about 260 people were evacuated from the college, including about 220 students. They were headed by bus to New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas, about nine miles away.

He said it was hard to tell if school property, including the historic Montezuma Castle, would be affected by the fire.

“It’s a very old wooden building. … Our primary concerns [are] about the students and our staff and employees, but we also are concerned about our beautiful campus and this castle,” Nelson said. “All we can really do is hope and pray that the firefighters are able to save lives and then, if possible, save property.”

For people who live in the once-verdant area now withered by drought, the uncertainty, inconvenience and frustration were palpable.

But in bits and pieces, there was still hope.

“The house is still up. I just got a picture from one of the firefighters and I’m relying on other people to let me know how things are going,” said Monica Aragon, a resident of the small community of Ledoux, near Mora.

Aragon acknowledged the events of the past week, with mandatory evacuations and minute-to-minute changes in the conditions in the area, have been unnerving.

“It’s just the fear of the unknown,” said Aragon, a member of the school board in Mora. “Locking up the house on Friday was just sad because you don’t know if you’re going to come back and see the place where your kids grew up. It’s kind of turned everything upside down. We don’t have all the comforts and routine we’re used to.”

She said her son, Diego Aragon, is a senior at Mora High School and had his graduation party set for Pendaries, a place hit hard by the fires.

Mora High’s prom, set for Saturday, was canceled.

“You spent all this time getting things just perfect for graduation year and then it’s like, ‘Geesh,’ ” she said.

Monica Aragon said the school intends to reschedule the prom for sometime in the next couple of weeks. Officials have made contingency plans to hold it in Las Vegas, with the Mora school district readying itself to start remote learning Tuesday.

Aragon said parents received surveys to see where they are staying and whether their kids have internet access or if they brought their Chromebooks with them.

The news was a bit better 120 miles to the west, where the same winds were wreaking havoc in the Cerro Pelado Fire, which had burned 7,245 acres as of midday Friday and forced the evacuations of Cochiti Mesa and Peralta Canyon. Close to 400 people are battling the blaze, with no reports of structures lost.

Winds in the area were not quite as bad as they were in the northeast of the state. But they were bad enough.

“The winds we expected did materialize today and are blowing pretty hard on the ridge tops,” said Santa Fe National Forest spokesman Mike Lindbery. “With that wind, it’s kind of like a bellow: You put wind on a fire, and it’s going to blow up.”

Though not unexpected — weather forecasters had warned of high winds throughout the area for days — the inability to stem the fire’s advance was a letdown, particularly in the Calf Canyon/Hermits Peak area, where much work had been done to prepare for Friday.

But officials warned that with fire, there are no sure bets.

Coil contrasted Friday’s battle with the one crews faced April 22, when the Calf Canyon and Hermits Peak monster roared down on Pendaries and nearby areas northwest of Las Vegas in a nightmarish onslaught of fire and smoke.

“Today, we have a big fire with a lot of potential, and we have a lot more resources,” he said Friday, noting the ability to divide crews into teams that could strategically take on the fire.

But with bigger fire comes bigger problems, he acknowledged, noting there is “more perimeter to keep an eye on.”

That growing perimeter was threatening Pendaries once again Friday, according to an email to community members from Paul Aragon, the village’s general manager.

Meanwhile, another huge fire in the area, Cooks Peak, had burned nearly 56,000 acres by midday and was 54 percent contained.

Dave Shell, a spokesman for the incident management team overseeing the Cooks Peak Fire, said, “It’s probably grown more with all the winds.”

He added, “Fire lines are holding,” but extreme wind had prevented aircraft from fighting the fire.

“No air attack today,” he said.

National Weather Service officials said the area would receive some respite Saturday, with less active winds in the Hermits Peak/Calf Canyon area, only 5 mph to 15 mph.

But Todd Shoemake of the weather service said the respite “will be short-lived” with winds expected to strengthen Sunday to 35 mph.

In addition, he said, dry conditions will continue through the next few days, with humidity levels in the 6 percent to 8 percent range.

Rain is not in the forecast for the next week, news that means there likely will be no intermission in New Mexico’s battle with fire.

New Mexican staff writers James Barron, Rick Ruggles, Robert Nott and Claudia L Silva contributed to this report.

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028/29) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028/29-3028/29).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

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

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
