New Madrid Fault--Connecting the Dots

Remember doing dot to dot as a child. All you saw was a bunch of dots and numbers follow the numbers connect the dots and the picture appears. Recently I have become aware of several "dots" regarding the New Madrid Fault. Connecting the New Madrid "dots" has led to a "picture" that I want you to see.

The Masonic death tomb line originating in Washington D.C. (see The Next Big Event--The Road to Jericho) goes straight through the New Madrid seismic area.

So let's connect the dots--what picture do you see? I am not predicting anything, but there is a lot of information suggesting that the New Madrid Fault may once again cause a serious earthquake in the future. When I do not know. What might some immediate precursors be? The USA forcing Israel to divide her land and create the Palestinian state--if you see that happen look out! Also, we know in the past there have been other immediate signs of earthquakes like birds leaving the area, erratic dog and animal behavior including great frog migrations and strange looking rainbows.

Again I am not predicting anything just wanted you to be aware of what I have found.

The War of the Worlds

It seems like things are really starting to heat up in regards to UFOs. For many years Hollywood and the entertainment industry has been trying to condition--brain wash--people into believing that there are such things as UFOs and extraterrestrials. BTW they have done a good, or should I say effective job, at getting people to believe.

Two-thirds of Americans say they think there are other forms of intelligent life in the universe and nearly half say they believe that UFOs have visited the earth in some form over the years (48 percent) or that aliens have monitored life on earth (45 percent). In fact, more than one in three Americans (37 percent) believe that humans have already interacted with extraterrestrial lifeforms. These beliefs tend to be more prevalent among males and among adults under the age of 65. Source

Many years ago after reading about the UFO phenomena from a Christian perspective I became convinced that most extraterrestrials and UFOs are demons (some are black ops projects) and that they will play a large part in end times Bible prophecy. Namely that they will be a major player in the "great falling away" talked about in scripture and will be connected to the antichrist. I have a gut feeling that the antichrist is going to claim to be an extraterrestrial and that he started life on this planet--thus he will claim to be our god.

Along these lines a few years ago I believe that I had a prophetic dream regarding UFOs and the antichrist. I still remember it vividly--I was standing on a street and saw a spaceship going across the sky as if it was coming in for a landing. Then I saw a military parade coming down the street -- the the parade was to honor the space traveler that came to earth in the spaceship. As he was passing by he stopped and stared at me with an evil look of anger. BTW he looked like a zombie. At that point I hightailed it out of there for I knew he was coming for me. I headed for the mountains and was able to escape.

Isn't that what scripture tells us; that the Jews and Christians will be persecuted by the antichrist after he comes to power?

And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. Revelation 13:5-7

And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Revelation 12:13-17

There it is plain as day the antichrist is given 42 months -- time, and times and half a time -- 3.5 years to reign on earth and for some of that time will persecute Jews and Christians--also known as the fifth seal.

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. Revelation 6:9-11

Now let's get to the latest in regards to UFOs. It seems that there are many rumors going about that Obama is getting ready to announce--let slip out--that the good ole USA has been in contact with extraterrestrials from--drum roll please--the Council of the Galactic Federation. I'm trying not to laugh. Here are a few snippets from the article linked below.

Chinese National Television Xinhua news is now reporting an impending extraterrestrial disclosure by the Obama administration.

The unprecedented national China TV news bulletin that U.S. President Barack Obama may be preparing to disclose U.S. relations with specific extraterrestrial races was broadcast on the official channel Xinhua on January 4, 2011 on the eve of China President Hu Jintao's state visit to the United States...

"All News Web has received information from government insiders close to the US President that Barack Obama has been given the go ahead to make an important "off the cuff" announcement regarding UFO visits and US contact with aliens.

"Allegedly DARPA has given this move the green light. The comments by the President will be made within the next month.

"Our sources claim this will not be outright admittance of UFO visits and contact with aliens, however the comments will come as close to admittance as any President has to date and will be made in the context of a speech on an entirely different matter.

"From what we understand The President will concede that there is 'some evidence' to suggest aliens might have attempted to contact Earthlings.

"All of this is said to be part of a warm up program leading to eventual outright admittance of knowledge of UFO and alien visitation by major world governments within three years..."

The essence of the council's message is that in an extraordinary meeting around Jan 2010 (Earth time), members of the council met and determined to set aside the law of non-intervention, as it made a factual determination that the ecology of the Earth was on the verge of collapse and beyond the capability of human technology to forestall collapse and species extinction.

Accordingly, the council indicated it had made a decision to intervene with advanced technology (probably Pleiadean) by 2015 (if not before) and clean the atmosphere of the Earth. The council is also seeking to make a world speech explaining their ecological plan in 2014 (if not before). Both Mr. Fulham and the NATO-Spanish intelligence officer mentioned that their interdimensional sources indicated large-scale social, financial, governmental, etc changes would take place on the planet 2011-14.

Let me put it in my words; The rumor is that the President is getting ready to announce that the USA has been in official contact with DEMONS. Like they are telling me something new. I have known that for a long time. If you do not think UFOs and extraterrestrials are demons there are many good books showing this fact, you can also read the post where I offer a short logical proof of the fact entitled The God Proof.

If the American people are going to be officially told about UFOs wouldn't they tell the leaders prominent leaders first? Well that is exactly what they have done.

At five thousand dollars a ticket, some business leaders got more than they bargained for when they attended the first day of the Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF) being held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. They were told flying saucers are real, and they better start thinking about the business implications of extraterrestrial life and technologies. Convened each year by the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority, the GCF brings together business and political leaders to discuss ways of promoting business competitiveness. For the first time at its annual conference, the GCF held a panel discussing UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Titled “Learning from Outer Space” the panel comprised five speakers who all endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life is real, and has many implications for the world as we know it.

The panel was held on January 23, and was a “main plenary” session meaning all GCF participants were able to attend and hear what the experts had to say about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Up to 1000 participants included business and political elites such as former British and Canadian Prime Ministers, Tony Blair and Jean Chretien; Jim Albaugh, President and CEO of Boeing; Andy Bird, chairman of Walt Disney International; Jared Cohen, Director of Google ideas, and many others.

Unfortunately I know that many will be deceived in regards to UFOs--even Christians. In the past I have had the opportunity to speak with many Christians about UFOs and I was surprised at how many Christians laughed and scoffed at what I was telling them--that UFOs were demons. They were so brain washed into believing that UFOs and extraterrestrials are visitors from other planets that they scoffed at the truth.

How about you, how about your loved ones? Let people know the truth that UFOs are demons and they are out to take as many as they can into the fires of hell. There is a real War of the Worlds going on everyday for the souls of men and the battle is soon to become more intense. Share the good news of Jesus Christ and rescue the perishing.

With the pending official announcement that UFOs and extraterrestrials are real and the acceptance of this by the public I believe that we are on the verge of seeing the Great Falling Away.

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 2 Thes 2:1-4

Palestinian Decision Time

On Tuesday January 18, 2011 for the first time the Palestinian state flag flew in Washington D.C.

The Palestinian diplomatic mission in Washington on Tuesday hoisted its national flag for the first time, saying it symbolised the struggle for independence. The Telegraph

That does not make me feel good for I realize that in the past we have been warned and disciplined by God for trying to force Israel to divide her land and create a Palestinian state. I know that this was only a symbolic gesture and I do not know what God's response will be to that gesture. But did anything symbolic happen to the United States about that time? Well let's see the headline in the Chinese newspapers stated that China was now #1 in the world and China's president was in Washington telling us the dollar is a thing of the past. And then we have this:

At the White House State dinner on Jan. 19, about six minutes into his set, Lang Lang began tapping out a famous anti-American propaganda melody from the Korean War: the theme song to the movie “Battle on Shangganling Mountain.”...“It’s like insulting you in your face and you don’t know it, it’s humiliating...” echoes Chinese propaganda and is a declaration of victory over the United States. Source:The Epoch Times

Hmmm...We allow the Palestinians to fly their flag in Washington D.C.--a symbolic gesture that we support the formation of the Palestinian state and the dividing of Israel--and the next day we are humiliated and symbolically told that we are losers!

Are all these occurrences coincidence or is God sending us a message? What concerns me more is the decision that we will most likely be faced with next week. The Telegraph article goes on to say...

...It also comes as Arab nations prepare to formally put a resolution to the UN Security Council on Tuesday demanding a condemnation of Israel's settlement building in Palestinian territories.
And how is it looking like we will respond?

A senior State Department official told reporters on the condition of anonymity that the Palestinians have "been told we think this is a bad idea ... We're encouraging them not to move this forward."
I hope this is the case and that we veto the move. Let's pray that we do and let's hope the USA does not use Obama's Last Card.

Which brings me back to Obama’s last card. The fact is that he does not have to instructthe US ambassador to the UN to vote against Israel in the Security Council. An American abstention would be enough to empower the nearest thing we have to world government .

The Rapture Code

Do you believe in the Bible codes? Some do and some do not. Personally I believe that God has encoded the Old Testament and legitimate Bible Codes do exist. There are also many Bible codes that are not legitimate, mainly because they do not have great enough odds to be considered beyond chance and thus may just be random. For a further discussion of that topic see The Bible Codes.

How about a translation? Could God have encoded a translation? My first thought was that a translation could not be encoded because translations are not inspired. But on the other hand who am I to limit God and say that He could not do that--He can do greater things than we can think or imagine. And it stands to reason that if you had a group of earnest, righteous, Holy Spirit controlled translators, that even though translations are not inspired, God could conceivably guide and direct the translators by His grace to translate according to His will and thus a translation and even it's revisions could also be encoded.

So a few years ago I decided to search the KJV to see if I could find any "codes." I found a very interesting code that concerns the rapture and clearly shows its timing. The code is depicted above and if you click on it you can see it in full size.

The matrix puts forth the idea that the Day of Christ or the Day of the Lord will occur at the sixth seal. It also puts forth the idea that the rapture will also occur at this time in which the righteous will be taken and delivered from the wrath to come and the wicked, men without Christ, will be left to suffer the wrath of God. This sentiment is echoed in the phrase “be saved, O safe!” which again sets forth the idea that if you are saved you will be safe from the wrath to come. The matrix further contains information regarding one of the most prominent signs of the Day of the Lord, namely that the moon will be turned to blood.

As stated above the odds of a matrix have to be high enough to be considered beyond chance and thus legitimate. The r-value of statistically significant terms in this matrix without inclusion of surface text is 8.079, which yields odds of approximately 120 million to one. However there are other statistically significant occurrences in this matrix;

1. The entire matrix only includes 3431 letters, which is approximately ½% of the 739,167 letters in the KJV New Testament. In the matrix the term “sixseal,” which is only encoded 4 times in the KJV New Testament, appears with 6 sentences or long phrases of definitely related surface text such as “Hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” “We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,” “The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,” “Day of Christ” “Glorious appearing of the great God.” “The Lord delivered me.”

2. The words “saints” and “taken” are only encoded once in this matrix and they cross each other and the surface text of “We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds.”

3. The encoded word “left,” occurs right below the surface text “wicked men.” The phrase “wicked men” only occurs 2 times in the KJV NT and appears in this small matrix very close to “left.”

4. The terms “saints” “taken” “wicked” and “men” all occur near each other. The other significant cluster of terms are “of blood” “moon” and “sign” where the phrase “of blood” also crosses the encoded term “moon,” which is almost parallel to the term “sign.” All 3 occur in a 7 x 28 box.

All of these statistically significant events increase the odds of this matrix from occurring by chance. If we conservatively estimate the odds of each of those 4 occurrences as 10 to 1 that would increase the odds of this matrix to an r-value of about 12 yielding odds of about one trillion to one.

Are the odds high enough for us to say that this matrix was by design and not chance? Does this matrix show that the KJV is encoded? I will leave those questions to be answered by the statistical experts. But if the answers to these questions are yes, then this matrix would offer confirmation to the fact that the rapture will occur after the sixth seal is opened.

Our only source for doctrine is God’s Holy Word; we are never to use experiences and or other spiritual phenomena such as the Bible codes to formulate doctrine. God’s Holy Word is clear that the rapture will occur after the sixth seal is opened and this Bible code whether by design or chance says the same thing.

Gulf of Mexico -- Alarming Revelations

I just read an article that disturbed me greatly. The article (linked below contained letters sent to Congressman on the energy and environmental committees. Here is what disturbed me;

I am an Independent Geohazards Specialist with 30 years experience in the oil and gas industry...I have been deeply concerned about...the uncontrollable continuing hydrcarbon leakage out of the Macondo reservoir. The continuing hydrocarbon seepage would have long term, irreversible and potentially dire consequences in the GOM as follows:

a. The vaporization of enormous amounts of methane hydrates on a scale not seen before.

b. The release of stresses between the upper and lower crusts resulting in the abnormal occurrences of low magnitude shallow earthquakes adjacent to the New Madrid fault.

c. The sub-seabed underground erosion in the vicinity of the shelf edge undermining the slope stability with possible tsunami-generating, giant, submarine landslides
Source: Gulf Oil Spill Remediation Conference

What concerns me further is the association of the New Madrid fault and end times Bible prophecy--that many have written about and foreseen. Another thing that disturbs me is the fact that a tsunami is depicted on the back of a ten dollar bill as shown below. Also below is a video regarding "things" on money, the money part starts at about the 2 minute mark. I do not know anything about the man doing the video and am not validating what he says just wanted you to see what is on the money.

Just wanted you to be aware of these things so that you are not caught unawares. Pray, watch, take action as the Lord directs. Learn the truth about end times Bible prophecy read The Coming Epiphany today for FREE!

The Floods and The Palestinian State

If you have been following world events you know that there is massive destructive flooding going on in 3 places right now; Australia, Brazil, and Sri Lanka. What's the connection--maybe it's the Palestinian state.

Joint Statement on Australia-Arab Relations
Joint media release:

Minister for Foreign Affairs, The Hon Kevin Rudd MP
Secretary General of the League of Arab States, His Excellency Mr Amre Moussa
10 December 2010

...The Foreign Minister and the Secretary General expressed their strong support for efforts to achieve a comprehensive, just and sustainable peace in the Middle East allowing both Israel and a future Palestinian state to live side by side in peace and security. They urged both sides to seize the opportunity for peace by continuing, as a matter of urgency, direct talks, with the goal of reaching agreement on final status issues within one year, and to refrain from any actions, including settlement activity in the Palestinian Territories, which undermined trust and the climate for negotiations. They commended the important contribution of the Arab Peace Initiative to these efforts.

The Secretary General and the Foreign Minister commended the efforts of the Palestinian Authority to develop the capacity and institutions necessary for a viable Palestinian state. They reaffirmed the commitment of Australia and the Arab League to supporting these efforts, including through financial and other tangible assistance. They welcomed the significant increase in Australia’s assistance to the Palestinian people, totalling $146 million since late 2007, and noted Australia’s intention to further strengthen development and capacity building assistance in preparation for statehood...

The Day the Earth Cracked

usa,  earthquake, new madrid fault, michigan, crack, israel, bible prophecy, end times, end of the world, revelationimage source:
On Monday October 4th, 2010 after a loud bang the earth cracked open in Michigan as depicted above. When I heard about this in October the thought came to my mind that maybe this is the start of the geological splitting in two of this country--which many have foreseen. Just this morning I was sent a link to the you tube video below showing the crack now. In the video you can see how the ground rose up, the trees parted left and right, and how hot air is now coming out of the ground.

The heat is obviously not that hot for there is still snow near the hole so it may be nothing unusual but after seeing the video I decided to check and see if anything occurred around that time concerning Israel and the United States. I found this article.

Israel must not be tempted to adopt US President Barack Obama’s suggestion to declare a two-month settlement construction moratorium, as it may lead to a forced (peace) agreement with the Palestinians and a return to the 1967 borders, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Sunday (October 3, 2010)....

“During my recent visit to the US I learned that Washington is planning to force a permanent agreement on Israel – two states for two peoples along the 1967 borders, plus-minus 3 or 4% of the territory exchanged,” Lieberman said. “This is the objective of a continued freeze – to give the US and the international community two months to come up with a solution that will be forced on Israel.”

According to the FM, in two months’ time “The US, along with the Quartet, the Arab League and the Palestinians will tell Israel, ‘This is the solution, take it or leave it. If you don’t, there is a price – a confrontation with the international community’. Therefore, we must not quit the coalition. It’s the only way to solidify a majority against the freeze, which is a decoy.”
The Day in Israel

So there it is; We tell Israel that we will force her to divide her land--the foreign minister of Israel announces this on October 3, 2010 and the next day the earth splits in the USA. Is this a coincidence or is God sending the USA a message?

Here is my message to the USA: DO NOT DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL!

The Day of the Lord--After the Rapture

The Lord brought me to Ezekiel 7 that is a fitting description of what will occur after the sixth seal is opened and the rapture occurs.

1Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

2Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.

3Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.

4And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

5Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come.

6An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come.

7The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.

8Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.

9And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.

10Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning is gone forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.

11Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of their's: neither shall there be wailing for them.

12The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.

13For the seller shall not return to that which is sold, although they were yet alive: for the vision is touching the whole multitude thereof, which shall not return; neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.

14They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none goeth to the battle: for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.

15The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him.

16But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.

17All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as water.

18They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.

19They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.

20As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in majesty: but they made the images of their abominations and of their detestable things therein: therefore have I set it far from them.

21And I will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.

22My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my secret place: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.

23Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.

24Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled.

25Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.

26Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients.

27The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

That is very sobering. If you want to see the details of all that the wrath of God entails including a horrendous meteor strike click on the End Times Forecast above. I am glad that Christians will not be here then!!! If you would like to escape God's wrath read the Salvation page.

The Day of the Lord -- The Preceding Event

As already discussed in the last post we know that the rapture is the first event of the Day of the Lord period. But what is the event that directly preceeds the Day of the Lord and the rapture?

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come Acts 2:20

It is clear; according to scripture the event directly preceeding the Day of the Lord and the rapture is the sun being darkened and the moon turning to blood.

When does that happen? After the opening of the Sixth Seal.

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; Rev 6:12

So we have the opening of the Sixth seal then the sun is darkened and the moon is turned to blood and then the Day of the Lord and the rapture.

Why don't most Christians believe it?

The Day of the Lord -- The First Event

For many people the first event of the new year was watching a ball drop or watching fireworks or banging pots or kissing a loved one--it was a celebration.

Do you know what the first event of the Day of the Lord period of time will be? Here is a hint.

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 1 Thes 5:1,2
What event will start the Day of the Lord period that will catch the world by suprise like a theif in the night? The rapture!!!

Yes; the rapture is the first event of the Day of the Lord period. Consider the verses before 1 Thes 5:1,2 and you will see it clearly.

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1. But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 1 Thes 4:15 - 5:2

It is clear that the rapture is being talked about here--shall be caught up with them together in the clouds--and it will catch the world by suprise like a theif in the night. God calls this catching up of believers and the world being caught off guard as the Day of the Lord.

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2. That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

The rapture is the first event of the Day of the Lord which is then followed by the wrath of God being poured out upon the world. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thes 4:18
