At the time of this writing widespread wildfires continue to burn across southern and central parts of B.C. with a province-wide emergency in place since July 7, while the forecast calls for the hot and dry weather to continue.

Please find below a copy of an earlier email as a reminder of our earlier communication and be reminded of the Words spoken by Jesus Christ (God in the flesh) to Nicodemus as recorded in John 3:19.

“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” (Other references Job 18:5; Proverbs 13:9; Isaiah 5:20; Matthew 11:20-24; John 1:4; Eph. 6:12).

A copy of our earlier email to you was sent to the Mayors and the members of their Council of Williams Lake, Kelowna and Kamloops. The message was also communicated to the Mayors of Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Grande Prairie.

The natural man is unable  to understand (1 Cor. 2:14; 15:44) that all things are ‘spiritual’ and that the wildfires in British Columbia are not just a ‘natural’ phenomenon. If you are doubtful about God’s infinite power over weather conditions, and question if He could have made an impact on the Wildfires in B.C., we invite you to read the article ‘The Mystery of the Lost Day’ listed on our website

We also invite you to read the story recorded in Luke 8:22-25, how Jesus Christ (God in the flesh) commanded the winds and the waters to calm. He parted the Red Sea and River Jordan and also walked on the sea (Matthew 14:25), fed the hungry, rose people from the dead, healed the lepers, the sick, the deaf, the dumb, the blind, the demoniac, the paralytic, the epileptic, etc. Please keep the latter in mind the next time you have a discussion on ‘The Imploding Health Care System’, ‘The Imploding Mental Health Crisis’ and ‘The Opioid Drug Abuse Crisis’. Also, please be reminded that the religious and political authorities would not receive Him either, and eventually turned Him over to the people who crucified Him. If there had been a Media Industry two thousand years ago, they would have most certainly refused to report any true facts and only reported what they wanted the authorities and the people to hear, in the same way the Media Industry operates today. For a better understanding how the Media Industry plays an integral part and role in deceiving the people of this world through false and misleading information, we invite you to read the article ‘Influence of the Media’ listed on our website

At last report more than 6000 km2 (600,000 hectares) of land has been consumed by wildfires so far this year in British Columbia. One would think that someone in Government would be interested in some kind of a solution. Bringing in firefighters from foreign countries, i.e. Mexico, U.S., Australia, New Zealand, etc. signifies a desperate situation. However, if you can find the time to socialize with other world leaders (G7 and G20), have an audience with the Pope (Rev. 17:2), attend local festivities (e.g. Calgary Stampede, Highland Games), participate in Gay Pride Parades and can find enough time for different Photo Ops to advance your personal political agenda that do not benefit the people of Canada, surely you can find the time to ask a few questions during a time, while parts of the country are on fire and tens of thousands of people have been inconvenienced. You may find yourself on the Cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, but please remember that God’s eyes are upon the ‘haughty’, to judge them and to bring them down (2 Samuel 22:28; Proverbs 16:18; Isaiah 10:33; 24:4; Zephaniah 3:11)).

It should be noted that in order to be able to control all communications in Nova Scotia and to prevent our message from being heard, your friend Stephen McNeil, the Premier of Nova Scotia, along with his friends at our local paper The Chronicle Herald, also referred to as the Liberal Newsletter, are still blocking all of our communications to email addresses ending in, and Obviously they do not understand that ‘You reap what you sow.’

Under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, one of the fundamental rights is the Freedom of Thought, Belief, Opinion and Expression, including Freedom of the Press and other media of Communication. A recent request to the newly appointed Attorney General and Minister of Justice for Nova Scotia and allow us to have normal lines of communication with the Provincial Government and the Chronicle Herald have also gone unanswered. As the Prime Minister of Canada and in order to preserve the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, we ask that you make arrangements and allow us to have normal communications with the Provincial Government and The Chronicle Herald without delay. This should take no more than a simple phone call to your friend, the Premier of Nova Scotia, who can contact his friends at The Chronicle Herald. Your cooperation will be appreciated.

To determine if our message is indeed according to the Spirit of truth (John 14:17), may we suggest you contact Fox News and learn of the downfall of Glenn Beck, Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly and most recently Eric Bolling. We warned them about their eventual downfall, but even then they did not believe us. Roger Ailes, the founder and one-time Chairman & CEO of Fox News and the Fox Television Stations Group, from which he resigned in July, 2016, following allegations that he sexually harassed female colleagues, died on May 18, 2017, as only a fool would die (2 Samuel 3:33; Eccl. 2:15,16). You can learn more about our communication by reading the articles ‘Glenn Beck – Fox News’ and ‘Bill O’Reilly – Fox News` listed on our website

A Nation without God is a Fallen Nation (1 Samuel 2:30; Psalm 33:12; Isaiah 1:4; 40:17; Matthew 12:25; 24:7).

And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me (Matthew 11:6).

As always, we welcome your questions and look forward to future dialogue.

In His Service.

Williams Lake is a City in in the Central Interior of British Columbia. It is the largest urban centre between Kamloops and Prince George, located 550 km North East of Vancouver with a population of 11,000 people.

The Williams Lake Community has been one of the hardest hit areas with the wildfires and forwarded the Mayor and the members of his Council a copy of our earlier email to Justin Trudeau. A copy was also forwarded to the Mayors and Council Members of the Cities of Kelowna and Kamloops.

The following is a copy of our communication to Walt Cobb, the Mayor of Williams Lake and his Councillors, after fire threatened the last highway out of the community.

We understand that more than 20,000 people have been evacuated from your community and as the Mayor of Williams Lake we thought you may be interested in a solution for the spread of the wildfires. So far the Prime Minister has not expressed an interest in any solutions. We understand he is too busy participating in Gay Pride Parades. God help the people of Canada. We welcome your questions.

In His Service.

We have communicated the root-cause of a number of social issues in the past, but even though it is your responsibility to serve the people of Canada you continue the destructive path the country is on. The following is an excerpt of the article ‘The True Christ vs False Christs’ listed on our website

The Problematic World Order in a Changing World

The above message was communicated to Ralph Goodale, the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness in December, 2016 of which you received a copy, and as the Prime Minister of Canada we deem it as our responsibility to once again reach out to you for the sake of the people of the Nation. This is the beginning of the Wildfire Season in B.C. and one individual that was interviewed even indicated that this could continue for another 10-12 weeks. How many people will have to be displaced before you will act?

This we know with absolute certainty: the true and living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who is the God of our testimony, has the power to reduce the current temperatures and calm the winds. He also has the power to provide the rains and for the wildfires to cease.

For a better understanding of the Drought and Wildfires that prompted a state of emergency and destroyed 2000 homes and buildings and consumed more than 85,000 hectares after only three days in Fort McMurray last year, we invite you to read the entry ‘Fort McMurray Widlfires‘ listed on the Current Events page of our website. The wildfires in Fort Mac were described by the Media of ‘biblical proportions’, a term used by the media that they were unable to understand and their reports were void of any explanation or understanding of the  root-cause of the calamities that engulfed Fort McMurray.

What you do with our message is your choice, but please do know that it is our hope for all man(kind) to come unto the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4). To continue to ignore our message will have severe consequences for many people in B.C. and for the people of Canada and therefore look forward to answer any questions you may have. We will resend this email four weeks from today to enquire about your intentions.

It should be noted that in an attempt to silence our voice Mark Furey, The Attorney General and Minister of Justice for Nova Scotia has still not been able to restore normal communications to all email addresses ending in and

A Nation without God is a Fallen Nation (Isaiah 1:4).

Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

In His Service.
