Colorado Voters Elect Nation’s First Openly Homosexual Governor
Nov 07, 2018 09:37 pm
Colorado Voters Elect Nation’s First Openly Homosexual Governor
(Christian News Network) – Voters in Colorado have elected the nation’s first openly homosexual governor, choosing Democrat Jared Polis 52 percent over Republican challenger Walker Stapleton, who obtained 45 percent of the vote. Jared Polis, who raises two children with his partner, Marlon Reis, has been serving in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2009. He made clear during his campaign that homosexual rights are an
important issue to him and noted his record of either writing or working to pass legislation protecting homosexuals and those who identify as transgender. “Jared worked across the aisle to eliminate the discriminatory ban on openly gay military service members, and he’s fighting back against Trump’s despicable ban on transgender Americans serving in the military,” Polis’ website states.

Scientists find ‘clear evidence’ that phone radiation causes cancer in rats

Scientists find ‘clear evidence’ that phone radiation causes cancer in rats
(Mirror) – It’s something that’s been widely debated for years, and now scientists have ‘clear evidence’ that phone radiation causes cancer – at least in rats. Researchers from the National Toxicology Program found that radiation from phones using 2G and 3G caused male rats to develop cancerous tumors in the heart and brain. Dr.John Bucher, who led the study, said:
“We believe that the link between radio frequency radiation and tumors in male rats is real.”In the study, the researchers housed rats in special chambers, where they exposed the animals to phone radiation from the womb and through their lifetime. The radiation exposure was intermittent – 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off, for 9 hours a day. The researchers found that male rats developed tumors in the heart and brain.

The Prophets Who Prophesy Red Waves Are Delusional

The Prophets Who Prophesy Red Waves Are Delusional
(Charisma News) – America ran purple after the midterm elections with the vote was split narrowly down the middle between Republicans and Democrats, and Spirit-filled entrepreneur and conservative commentator Lance Wallnau says he knows why. There was no blue wave, and there was no red wave, which may have shocked some believers. “The prophets [who] prophesied red waves are delusional,” Wallnau says. “They’re listening to cue droppings; they’re delirious.” But what about Christian campaigning?
“All of our money that we put into Christians and organizations, please listen to me. Most of the organizations we support are policy paper organizations, they’re not politics organizations. They don’t know how to get people elected. They know how to write papers and lobby for Christian-evangelical influence. We should learn from this,” Wallnau says.

Surgeon removes woman’s kidney during back surgery after mistaking it for cancerous tumor
Nov 06, 2018 10:52 pm
Surgeon removes woman’s kidney during back surgery after mistaking it for cancerous tumor
(Fox News) – A Florida surgeon mistook a woman’s healthy kidney for a cancerous tumor — and inexplicably removed it during a routine back surgery, according to a report. Maureen Pacheco, then 51, checked into Wellington Regional Medical Center back in April 2016 to get the bones in her lower back fused in the wake of a car accident, The Palm Beach Post reported. During the operation, Dr. Ramon

Vazquez spotted the organ — which he believed to be a tumor, declared an emergency and removed it, according to a lawsuit obtained by the paper that was settled in September. Pacheco never had a say in the matter, according to the lawsuit. And Vazquez wasn’t even the one performing the back surgery. His job was to cut her open so surgeons could perform the operation.

79 Presbyterian Schoolchildren Kidnapped in Cameroon Near Where US Missionary Was Murdered

79 Presbyterian Schoolchildren Kidnapped in Cameroon Near Where US Missionary Was Murdered
(The Christian Post) – Prayers are being urged after 79 schoolchildren, along with three staff members, were kidnapped by separatists from a Presbyterian school in Cameroon. The Associated Press reported that the students, aged between 11-17, have appeared in a video posted on social media by the abductors, who call themselves “Amba boys.” The latest incident on Sunday in the English-speaking region of the country is

apparently related to the separatists’ attempts to establish an independent state in Cameroon’s Anglophone North West and South West regions. The video shows the boys being forced by the kidnappers to give their names and those of their parents. The armed men in the video explain that the students will not be released until their new state “Ambazonia” is created.

How the Devil Wants to Sabotage Your Impact on the Kingdom of God

How the Devil Wants to Sabotage Your Impact on the Kingdom of God
(Charisma Magazine) – I was talking to the devil the other day. I said, “So, the Lord is doing great things in our congregation.” To which he responded, “Yes, but it won’t last if I can help it.” I felt a cold wave of fear come over me. “How do you plan to stop it?” I asked. “It’s quite simple” he said. “Passover’s just around the corner—just look at what I did during the Exodus to turn people against Moses. First, I started with fear. Sure, things were fine when they left Egypt, but look what happened when they saw an army coming after them. I will fill your congregation with fear just as I did back then. I will tell them that they were better off before. And then I will tell them that this all the fault of Moses …

or in your congregation, the leadership!” When Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and indeed, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they were extremely terrified, so the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Then they said to Moses, “Is it because there were no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you dealt with us in this way, bringing us out of Egypt? Is not this the word that we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness” (Ex. 14:10-12).

AI detects Alzheimer’s disease SIX years early – with 100% accuracy in small study

AI detects Alzheimer’s disease SIX years early – with 100% accuracy in small study
(Daily Mail) – A new artificial intelligence system can predict the development of Alzheimer’s with 100 percent accuracy and six years before the hallmarks that doctors use to diagnose the disease appear. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s and the effectiveness of the best treatments for the disease diminishes as it progresses. This means that early detection is the single best hope for the futures of the 44 million people

living with Alzheimer’s around the world. Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), taught their AI how to detect subtle changes in the brain that would be imperceptible to the human eye. So far, the system has provided a seemingly fail-proof early warning before the full onset of Alzheimer’s’ devastating effects in a small sample of tests.

University Puts Religious Freedom on Trial, Punishes Christian Professor Over Transgender Pronouns

University Puts Religious Freedom on Trial, Punishes Christian Professor Over Transgender Pronouns
(CBN News) – A philosophy professor in Ohio filed a lawsuit against his university on Monday for punishing him after he refused to refer to a transgender student according to their preferred gender pronoun. In January, Nicholas Meriwether, an evangelical Christian and 22-year employee at Shawnee State University, responded to a question from Alena Bruening by saying, “Yes, sir.” Bruening is a biological man who

identifies as a woman. Bruening approached Meriwether after class and demanded that he refer to him using feminine pronouns. When Meriwether did not instantly agree, Bruening promised to get him fired and used derogatory language towards the professor. Meriwether, who refers to all of his students as “sir,” “ma’am,” “Mr.,” or “Miss,” offered to use the student’s first or last name instead, but this did not satisfy university administrators or the student.

Ex-Wife of David E. Taylor Says He Had Multiple Affairs, Got Her Pregnant Before Marriage
(The Christian Post) – Tabitha Taylor, the ex-wife of controversial Missouri Pastor David E. Taylor of Joshua Media Ministries International claims he engaged in multiple extramarital affairs during their relationship and got her pregnant before they were married. Speaking out in a recent broadcast on Facebook Live, Tabitha explained that she is coming forward with her story now as a warning to the church against the abusive and manipulative behavior of pastors operating contrary to Scripture.
“We’re teaching people that it’s OK to sin. We’re teaching people that it’s OK to live unrighteously but God is gonna bring judgment to the household of God. He is. He’s gonna judge us if we don’t get it together people of God. We’re preaching in the pulpit and we’re sleeping with our members. We’re preaching in the pulpit and we’re abusing the sheep. We’re preaching in the pulpit and we’re not doing right by the people of God. We’re not walking in love. We’re destroying people’s marriages, we’re destroying people’s homes and God is not pleased …,” she said.

Lutheran pastor says It’s okay to look at porn, especially if it’s ‘ethically sourced’

Lutheran pastor says It’s okay to look at porn, especially if it’s ‘ethically sourced’
(LifeSiteNews) – A prominent progressive pastor has said viewing pornography is just fine, especially if it is “ethically sourced porn.” Reverend Nadia Bolz-Weber of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) heads a congregation composed of many LGBT members and which features a “Minister of Fabulousness,” according gay news site outinjersey.net. That website recently released a lengthy interview with the female pastor in which she shared some of her pro-LGBT and pro-pornography opinions.
“I refused to pick the low-hanging ‘Moral Outrage Fruit’ of Liberals and Conservatives about porn,” said the tattooed pastor. “Now, there are issues of justice and exploitation within the porn industry, no question, but it doesn’t mean consumption of pornography should be shamed.” “There is ethically sourced porn,” continued the Colorado pastor. “There are people who say it’s sexual immorality, but if you take Liberals and Conservatives who show outrage and made a Venn diagram of those who consume pornography, you’d see a huge overlap.”

Black Women Turning to Witchcraft Because the Church Is ‘Too Oppressive’
(Charisma News) – The Atlantic reports more and more black women are leaving their Christian backgrounds in favor of the witchcraft-based religions of their ancestors. More than 200 witches of color gathered in Maryland last month for a convention sponsored by Dawtas of the Moon. The Atlantic’s Sigal Samuel reports that many of these women sought witchcraft as an escape from Christianity. “I understand God more now, doing
what I’m doing, than I ever did in the Church,” one woman reportedly said from behind a lectern. Get Spirit-filled content delivered right to your inbox! Click here to subscribe to our newsletter.

61 Percent of Christians Believe in These 4 New Age Ideas
(Charisma News) – It’s common knowledge that the New Age movement has a strong foothold on our culture right now. Bookstores are lined with best-selling titles teaching people how to use crystals, how to meditate and cultivate “higher consciousness” and how to make contact with spirit guides, as people like Jim Carrey and Oprah Winfrey continue to push things like Christ-consciousness and meditation on the masses. Popular teachers like Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle continue to sell millions of copies of books
teaching the idea that God is an impersonal force in the universe and that we are to cultivate relationship with this force by shifting our consciousness and practicing things like “mindfulness,” “presence” or yoga. This year, Netflix recently came out with a series called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, complete with spell-casting, incantations and demonic manifestations right around the same time the makeup company Sephora announced that they would be releasing a starter with kit for little girls, complete with crystals, sage and tarot cards.

RUMORS OF WAR: US and Japan draw up plans to defend disputed islands from China

RUMORS OF WAR: US and Japan draw up plans to defend disputed islands from China
(news.com.au) – The Senkaku Islands are tiny rocky spurs, part of a scattering of islands between the northern tip of Taiwan and the Japanese home islands. They are rapidly turning into a flashpoint for war. Beijing claims the islands as part of its historical inheritance — as it does neighboring Taiwan, despite failing to seize the protectorate during the Chinese Civil War. Taiwan, however, was a Japanese protectorate before
World War II. It’s a messy historical scenario, thought resolved through United Nations conventions and treaties established after the conflict. But ongoing aggressive incursions by Chinese fishing boats — organized as a state militia — and a freshly militarised coast guard has seen tensions in the East China Sea flare. Now, Japan and the United States are drawing up battle plans to enable their forces to fight together against any Chinese incursion.

Seven reasons the Middle East could be heading towards a war over water
Nov 05, 2018 08:49 pm
Seven reasons the Middle East could be heading towards a war over water
(TRT World)  – The effects of climate change and water scarcity in the Middle East will only get worse, and there may not be a way out. Here are seven reasons why. The Middle East is quietly heading towards the largest natural disaster in human history, and there’s nothing it can do about it.
1) Ignored warnings – In 2015, a report by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation quietly warned of a bleak, water-scarce future for the Middle East. It highlighted climate change, erratic weather, and the utter lack of water sustainability in the Middle East, made all the more dangerous by “high degrees of reliance on agriculture, and low adaptive capacities.” With only 2 percent of the Middle East covered by water, and 94 percent vulnerable to climate change, its very future is at stake. Three years later, the situation has only become more bleak, as water increasingly becomes a coveted and politicized resource.

Sarah Silverman’s Hulu Show Mocks Jesus as ‘Pansexual,’ Suggests Hell Is ‘Just a Construct’

Sarah Silverman’s Hulu Show Mocks Jesus as ‘Pansexual,’ Suggests Hell Is ‘Just a Construct’
(FaithWire) – Actor Fred Armisen portrayed Jesus on a new episode of comedian Sarah Silverman’s Hulu show, “I Love You, America,” and it is incredibly bizarre. In the cringeworthy skit, Armisen’s portrayal of Jesus has no issue talking about liberal politics, cursing and discussing his sexuality — his pansexual orientation, to be specific. Armisen’s comments about sexuality came up after Silverman called him “cute” and said she wished Jesus wasn’t “like celibate or asexual.”
“Actually, I’m not. I’m essentially pansexual,” Armisen’s character replied. “I love everyone and everything. In fact, I had mind-blowing sex with an oak tree the other day. … Everyone is my type. I’m literally attracted to everyone.” Then earlier in the segment, Armisen’s Jesus talked about his testicles, explaining, “Instead of being filled with semen, they’re filled with clouds… [Ejaculation] is actually quite painful.”

Burst of Polio-Like Cases in Children Continues To Alarm Doctors…
(WSJ) – Two years ago, Christa Bottomley’s healthy 5-year-old son caught a viral cold like the rest of the family. Everyone else recovered, but in his case the virus triggered a neurological condition. The condition is called acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM. Though rare, it has jumped onto the national radar. As doctors struggle to explain its third nationwide peak since 2014, families like the Bottomleys are trying to provide hope to others hit with the sudden, polio-like disease and to push for more awareness in the medical community.
AFM causes inflammation of the nervous system, particularly the gray matter of the spinal cord, which results in weakening muscles in usually one or more arms and legs. It can also affect the face and lead to difficulty swallowing or even breathing. Almost all AFM patients are hospitalized for several days or even months. It affects mainly children, who sometimes recover over time, often with therapy. Others remain paralyzed, needing long-term care and rehabilitation.

RUMORS OF WAR: Iran president warns of ‘war situation’ as sanctions resume

RUMORS OF WAR: Iran president warns of ‘war situation’ as sanctions resume
(AP) — Iran greeted the re-imposition of U.S. sanctions on Monday with air defense drills and a statement from President Hassan Rouhani that the nation faces a “war situation,” raising Mideast tensions as America’s maximalist approach to the Islamic Republic takes hold. The sanctions end all economic benefits America had granted Tehran for its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, though Iran for now continues to abide by the accord that saw it limit its enrichment of uranium. While at the
moment not threatening to resume higher enrichment, Iranian officials in recent months have made a point to warn the controversial process could resume at any time, faster than before. The new American sanctions particularly hurt Iran’s vital oil industry, a crucial source of hard currency for its anemic economy. Its national currency has plummeted over the last year, sending prices for everything from mobile phones to medicine skyrocketing. “Today, Iran is able to sell its oil and it will sell,” Rouhani vowed Monday as the sanctions kicked in.

DEVELOPING: Severe Weather Outbreak, Including Threat of Tornadoes Targets the South

DEVELOPING: Severe Weather Outbreak, Including Threat of Tornadoes Targets the South
(The Weather Channel) An outbreak of severe thunderstorms packing damaging winds and tornadoes is likely to begin this afternoon over a swath of the South, continuing well into the overnight hours. This threat of severe weather will then spread into the East Tuesday. A powerful jet stream is carving into the central U.S. Ahead of this powerful jet-stream, warmer and more humid air will surge northward, with dew points
into the 60s possibly as far north as portions of the Ohio River Valley Monday and mid-Atlantic states Tuesday – plenty moist for severe weather. The strong upper-level winds with colder air aloft and ample warm and humid air near the ground will help create an unstable atmosphere in the South as a cold front approaches, igniting severe thunderstorms.

Housing market reminiscent of 2006 bubble, Ready to burst

Housing market reminiscent of 2006 bubble, Ready to burst
(RT News) The weakening housing market is similar to the last market high, just before the subprime housing bubble burst a decade ago, says famed housing-watcher Robert Shiller. The economist, who predicted the 2007-2008 crisis, told Yahoo Finance that current data shows “a sign of weakness.” Housing pivots take more time than those in the stock market, Shiller said, adding that “the housing market does have a momentum component and we’re seeing a clipping of momentum at this time.” The
Nobel Laureate explained: “If the markets go down, it could bring on another recession. The housing market has been an important element of economic activity. If people start to get pessimistic about housing and pull back and don’t want to buy, there will be a drop in construction jobs and that could be a seed for another recession.” He added: “By the way, we’re overdue for another recession.” When reminded that 2006 predated the greatest financial crisis in a lifetime, Shiller acknowledged that any correction would likely be far less severe.

Pompeo warns of ‘severe, swift punishment’ & ‘painful business’ with Iran as sanctions reinstated

Pompeo warns of ‘severe, swift punishment’ & ‘painful business’ with Iran as sanctions reinstated
(RT News) The US has reimposed sanctions on Iran, targeting the Islamic Republic’s energy, banking and shipping sectors. State Secretary Mike Pompeo warned of “swift punishment” for other countries doing business with Iran. Monday’s sanctions are a reintroduction of penalties lifted under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The multilateral deal promised Iran sanctions relief in exchange for a pause on its nuclear weapons program.
President Trump withdrew from the deal in May, and has since reimposed economic sanctions in several rounds. The sanctions target 50 Iranian banks, 200 individuals, and vessels in Iran’s shipping and energy sectors, as well as one airline and 65 of its aircraft. Furthermore, Pompeo promised to mete out “swift punishment” to countries who defy the US’ anti-Iran sanctions. “I promise you,” Pompeo said, “that doing business with Iran in defiance of our sanctions will ultimately be a much more painful business decision than pulling out of Iran.”

Sharia survivor reveals the answer to stopping Islamic extremism
https://israelunwired.com/sharia-survivor-reveals-the-answer-to-stopping-islamic-extremism/
By Leah Rosenberg -  November 6, 2018 1833 0
https://israelunwired.com/sharia-survivor-reveals-the-answer-to-stopping-islamic-extremism/
It is not easy to survive life in a country that is based on Islamic extremism.  This woman explains how in a matter of just a few months, the Iranian revolution changed millions of people’s lives.  The Hijab – the head scarf is just one of many examples of Sharia Law that became the law of the land in Iran.

The Solution to Stop Islam.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=39&v=jYCDuBuDlgI&ab_channel=TheGlazovGang
This woman escaped to America and explains the best way to defeat the threat that Islamic extremism poses.  Those who believe in Islamic Law and Sharia do not only strive to live their religion in their own countries.  A major part of the theology believes in the takeover of other countries.  The goal then is to impose their religion on others.

The Solution – Education
She believes that if we can somehow educate all people who follow the Koran, then they will choose a different way of life.  Well, at least she is qualified to believe so as she grew up in an Islamic society and chose to leave.  Is she right?  I hope so.  But, it’s hard to know.

The Soviet Union
There is a clear precedent in the previous century for the nature of what she proposes. One of the key parts in the battle of the Cold War was that the United States pumped western values across the Iron Curtain into the Soviet Union and its satellites.  Whether it was with Reader’s Digest, shortwave radios, or smuggling in other Western values somehow, there is no question that this affected the Soviet Union.  The best proof is from the time that the Iron Curtain fell and the Soviet Union fell apart.  People flocked towards the West and the United States en masse.  In addition, they quickly brought Western values into the former Soviet Union on a massive scale.

So, perhaps one day there will be a major reeducation plan to try to penetrate the closed Islamic societies in some countries.  At the very least, it’s worth a try.

Why Does the Mainstream Media Continue to Ignore These Mass Christian Executions?
Nov 04, 2018 02:21 pm
Why Does the Mainstream Media Continue to Ignore These Mass Christian Executions?
(Charisma) The global persecution of Christians continues to escalate dramatically, and yet the mainstream media in the United States is virtually silent about it. In this article, I am going to quote a lot of sources, but they are all either overseas news outlets or Christian websites in the United States. To a certain extent, I think that the mainstream media is extremely hesitant to report about the global persecution of Christians because it may cause the general public to feel sympathetic, and that would definitely be counterproductive to what they are trying to accomplish. Ultimately,

the elite are trying to demonize Christians, conservatives, patriots and anyone else who would attempt to oppose their radical agenda for America. So they are banning us from their internet platforms, they are mocking us on their news and entertainment programs, and they certainly don’t want to highlight the fact that the persecution of Christians is escalating rapidly around the globe. In this article, I would like to share with you eight recent examples of Christians being persecuted that you probably never heard about from the mainstream media…

DEVELOPING: U.S. militia groups head to border
(MSN) Gun-carrying civilian groups and border vigilantes have heard a call to arms in President Trump’s warnings about threats to American security posed by caravans of Central American migrants moving through Mexico. They’re packing coolers and tents, oiling rifles and tuning up aerial drones, with plans to form caravans of their own and trail American troops to the border.  “We’ll observe and report, and offer aid in any way we can,” said Shannon McGauley,

a bail bondsman in the Dallas suburbs who is president of the Texas Minutemen. McGauley said he was preparing to head for the Rio Grande in coming days. “We’ve proved ourselves before, and we’ll prove ourselves again,” he said. McGauley and others have been roused by the president’s call to restore order and defend the country against what Trump has called “an invasion,” as thousands of Central American migrants advance slowly through southern Mexico toward the U.S. border.

Chinese Priests Detained, Forced to Study Communist Orders on Christianity; 12 Worship Venues Seized
(The Christian Post) Two underground Catholic priests have been detained in Hebei Province, China, and forced to study the Communist government’s orders on how Christianity is to be practiced. More than a dozen underground religious venues in the province have also been seized, UCA News.com reported. The priests in question were identified as Father Su Guipeng and Father Zhao He from the Xuanhua Diocese.

Zhao was reportedly taken away by United Front Work Department of Yangyuan County personnel last week, who took his phone and placed him in detention at a hotel, putting him under constant surveillance by guards. The underground priest was then forced to recognize the state-controlled Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association and to study the revised regulations on religious practice.

California Hit By 39 Earthquakes Within 24 Hours As Scientists Warn Of “Movement Along The San Andreas Fault”
(The Most Important News) A series of large earthquakes has rattled California over the last 24 hours, and scientists are telling us that the shaking was the result of “movement along the San Andreas Fault system”. In recent months there has been an alarming amount of seismic activity all along “the Ring of Fire”, and there have been times when the number of global earthquakes has been way above normal. Could it be possible that all of this unusual seismic activity is leading up to something? As you will see below, experts are telling us that we are overdue for the “Big One” to hit California.

And when it does eventually strike, it could be far worse than most people would dare to imagine. Most of the 39 significant earthquakes that have struck California within the last 24 hours have happened along the San Andreas Fault. The following comes from CBS News… A swarm of earthquakes along the San Andreas Fault, the largest measuring a 4.1 magnitude, rumbled through the Hollister area and the Salinas Valley Friday morning. CBS San Francisco, citing officials, reports the quakes rattled nerves but caused no major damage.

PROPHECY WATCH: Author claims humanity will soon worship an A.I Messiah

PROPHECY WATCH: Author claims humanity will soon worship an A.I Messiah
(Daily Star) It is already predicted that AI will soon be present in all areas of the workplace, with industry experts saying it will eventually do millions of jobs currently done by people. It is thought that every field – from publishing to factory work – will eventually be dominated by intelligent robots as men and women become increasingly obsolete. But now experts believe more than jobs are at risk in the Artificial Intelligence revolution. Novelist Dan Brown previously warned people may no longer worship God or pray to Jesus – instead of putting all their faith in an AI messiah.

Speaking about the advent of this technology, the Da Vinci Code writer said: “Humanity no longer needs God but may with the help of artificial intelligence develop a new form of collective consciousness that fulfills the role of religion. “Are we naive today to believe that the gods of the present will survive and be here in a hundred years?” According to Daily Galaxy, MIT physicist and cosmologist Max Tegmark also said that once this new superintelligence is vastly greater than that of a human, the fate of mankind will depend on it.

Lauren Daigle Has a Few Words for Those Criticizing Her for Singing on ‘Ellen’

Lauren Daigle Has a Few Words for Those Criticizing Her for Singing on ‘Ellen’
(FaithWire) Christian singer Lauren Daigle shared a few words earlier this week for the few who have criticized her for singing last month on daytime host Ellen Degeneres’ talk show. While most were happy to see the “You Say” singer-songwriter perform on Degeneres’ show, some criticized Daigle’s decision because of the talk show host’s openly gay lifestyle. Daigle responded to her detractors during an interview with

WAY-FM, explaining, “I think the second we start drawing lines around which people are able to be approached and which aren’t, we’ve already completely missed the heart of God.” “I don’t have all the answers in life,” she continued, “but one thing I know is that I can’t choose who I’m supposed to be kind to and who I’m not, because that’s the mission, right? Be who Christ was to everyone as well.”

Mysterious aircraft at secret US base ‘intentionally blurred’ by Google
(Express) Speculation has erupted over a mysterious aircraft spotted at a top-secret US military base, amid claims that Google Maps has “refused” to update its satellite imagery of the area for more than eight years. A mysterious aircraft at a top-secret US military base has been blurred on Google Maps, sparking wide-ranging conspiracy theories. The unidentified object was spotted at a base which has long been linked to

secretive government tests and has even been nicknamed Area 52. The base in southwestern Nevada has at the center of conspiracy theories after Google Maps “refused” to update its satellite images of the area for eight years between 2008 and 2016. At this time, the online satellite imagery showed only several dry lake beds within the Tonopah Test Range – just 70 miles northwest of the notorious Area 51 facility.

Three signs that Biblical prophecies about end of the world and the Messiah are ‘coming true’

Three signs that Biblical prophecies about end of the world and the Messiah are ‘coming true’
ATTENTION: The Following report does not reflect the views or opinions of End Time Headlines
(The Sun) Three unusual happenings have sparked claims that Biblical prophecies about the end of the world and the coming of the Messiah may be coming true. The first occurrence was the birth of the first ‘red heifer in 2,000 years’ in Israel – a creature that features in ‘end of times’ tales in both Christianity and Judaism. The news of the birth, which emerged in September,
was followed by claims last month that fish and other forms of life are quickly filling up Dead Sea sinkholes. Hebrew prophet Ezekiel’s end-of-days prophecy foresees the sea – a hypersaline environment, with a reported 37 per cent salinity – flourishing into life. And a photojournalist with the Dead Sea Revival Project said that coming to the body of water, “the lowest point on earth, you see prophecy coming true”.

BREAKING: At least 7 killed as bus carrying Christians attacked in Egypt
Nov 02, 2018 10:20 am
BREAKING: At least 7 killed as bus carrying Christians attacked in Egypt
(RT News) At least seven people were killed and more than a dozen wounded in an attack on a bus transporting Coptic Christians to a monastery in Minya, Egypt, a local archbishop told Reuters. Heavy gunfire reportedly broke out as a bus carrying Coptic Christian pilgrims was on its way to the Monastery of Saint Samuel the Confessor. A graphic video purportedly showing the aftermath of the attack has been

circulating on social media. A similar attack occurred in 2017, when masked gunmen opened fire on a bus convoy carrying Copts to the same monastery, killing 28 people and injuring 22. It’s unclear who carried out the attack, with no group claiming responsibility. Coptic Christians have been repeatedly targeted by terrorists.

Private messages from 81,000 hacked Facebook accounts for sale

Private messages from 81,000 hacked Facebook accounts for sale
(BBC News) Hackers appear to have compromised and published private messages from at least 81,000 Facebook users’ accounts. The perpetrators told the BBC Russian Service that they had details from a total of 120 million accounts, which they were attempting to sell, although there are reasons to be skeptical about that figure. Facebook said its security had not been compromised. And the data had probably been obtained through malicious browser extensions.

Facebook added it had taken steps to prevent further accounts being affected. The BBC understands many of the users whose details have been compromised are based in Ukraine and Russia. However, some are from the UK, US, Brazil and elsewhere. The hackers offered to sell access for 10 cents (8p) per account. However, their advert has since been taken offline. “We have contacted browser-makers to ensure that known malicious extensions are no longer available to download in their stores,” said Facebook executive Guy Rosen.

Four strong quakes strike west coast of US
(Express) A series of strong earthquakes have struck central California with residents in the city of Hollister reporting being shaken awake by the tremors. Four quakes struck in quick succession from 1pm GMT today (6am local time) with their strength ranging from 4.1 to 3.0. The first hit 25 miles east of Monterey, California, at 12.58pm GMT, with aftershocks recorded until 1.22pm, according to data from

the United States Geological Survey (USGS). All struck at relatively shallow depths of between 4 miles (6.5km) and 2.4 miles (3.9km) below the Earth’s surface, USGS said. The tremors were strong enough to be felt by residents in the area who took to earthquake monitoring site EMSC to report their experiences.

Mom Says School District Gave Son Illegal Sex Change Operation Without Her Consent

Mom Says School District Gave Son Illegal Sex Change Operation Without Her Consent
(CBN News) A Minnesota federal appeals court recently heard the case of a mother who claims her underage son was given a sex change operation without her consent. Anmari Calgaro sued her county, school district, and medical care providers for allegedly bypassing her consent as the legal guardian, and giving her child transgender services and narcotic drugs. Calgaro originally filed the lawsuit in 2016 but was represented by the Thomas More Society before a three-judge panel on the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.

School officials who helped Calgaro’s 17-year-old son through the sex change process argued that he “should be treated as an emancipated minor because he had been living on his own and had a letter of emancipation, though it was not legally binding.” District Court Judge Paul Magnuson ruled in May 2017 that Calgaro’s son was not legally emancipated and her parental rights “remain intact.” However, he ruled against the mother, arguing that the parties involved could not be sued for violating her rights.

Trump threatens to open fire on migrants if they throw stones at border security

Trump threatens to open fire on migrants if they throw stones at border security
(Daily Mail) President Donald Trump issued a dire warning to would-be immigrants making their way toward the U.S., warning that thousands of U.S. troops being sent to the border would return fire if caravan members throw rocks at them. Trump has already ordered thousands of troops to the southern border, and was asked after delivering a fiery speech at the White House whether he envisioned them firing on the people making there way approaching the border on foot. ‘I hope not.

I hope not. It’s the military. I hope there won’t be that. But I will tell you this: Anybody throwing stones, rocks, like they did to Mexico and the Mexican military, Mexican police – where they badly hurt police and soldiers of Mexico – we will consider that a firearm,’ Trump warned. ‘Because there’s not much difference. When you get hit in the face with a rock. Which, as you know, it was very violent a few days ago. Very, very violent,’ he added.

Serpent from Western Wall triggers anticipation of Messiah returning and rise of Third Temple
Nov 02, 2018 09:15 am
Serpent from Western Wall triggers anticipation of Messiah returning and rise of Third Temple
(BIN) A snake wriggling out from between the stones of the Western Wall in search of a meal brought with it a message straight from Jewish mystical teachings; connecting the archetypal enemy of man with the High Priest in the Temple, and also, perhaps, serving as a harbinger of the Messiah. Women who went to the Kotel (Western Wall) on Wednesday were shocked to see a snake crawling out from between the ancient stones. The Coin Snake, common to the region, is not venomous but it is similar in appearance to the deadly viper also found in Israel.

The snake was probably seeking a meal of pigeons or eggs but it brought with it a powerful message. A Hebrew language blogger quoted by Ynet News noted the serpent made its Jerusalem appearance during a hotly contested mayoral election, connecting it to the destruction of the Second Temple. “The snake appeared during this time of dispute and divisiveness at the site of the Temple which was destroyed because of widespread hatred and divisiveness.” READ MORE https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/116242/snake-temple/

PROPHECY WATCH: Macron to unveil “peace plan” soon if Trump doesn’t
(The Times Of Israel) If US President Donald Trump does not present his Israeli-Palestinian peace plan next month, France’s President Emmanuel Macron will issue a proposal of his own, a senior Israeli diplomat reportedly told Knesset members at a closed-door briefing. Alon Ushpiz, the Foreign Ministry’s political director, testified to the Knesset’s powerful Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday, in a closed session, that France is waiting out November 6’s US midterm elections,

but that if Trump does not present his long-awaited plan in the first few weeks after that vote, Macron will publicize his own formula, TV news reports said. The reports, on Israel’s Channel 10 and Hadashot TV, quoted MKs who were at the session. The Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem said the reports contained inaccuracies.

DEVELOPING: Mysterious booming sound rattles residents from Delaware to New Jersey
It’s described as a booming or thumping sound. A repetitive, dull bass that been pulsating through homes and rattling residents’ nerves. It’s music whose origin is a mystery and has been bombarding residents in the Delaware River towns of Carneys Point, Penns Grove and Pennsville. It’s been heard various times since the summer, some say, but the worst spate has been in the past couple of weeks.

“It was like a sickening pulsing heartbeat. We turned up our television, but could not overpower the throb,” said Monica Morris Lind, a riverfront resident describing the wave of sound that was traveling across the water on Sunday night. “The thumping came straight through our front porch to the back of our home in the kitchen. It went on until the wee hours of the morning until around 3 a.m.”

Why Church In America Is in Serious Trouble
Nov 01, 2018 06:52 pm
Why Church In America Is in Serious Trouble
(Charisma Magazine) I know it’s considered a generalization to pin one issue on an entire nation, but America, we need to talk. I understand that it’s natural for our lives to follow a pattern, a daily, weekly and monthly routine that cycles over and over again. That’s fine. Really, it’s not this routine that I take issue with. But it seems to me that we in the American church have allowed our objectively neutral routines to create in our lives a spiritually fatal case of complacency. With the midterm elections approaching next week, we are being offered an incredible opportunity to break from the rut of our comfortable lives and take godly action.

It’s time for us to get up, get out and take part in what God is calling the church to do in this crucial, unprecedented season. The fate of our country and our hearts depends on it. The Word I see in the Bible that is most closely related to complacency is lukewarmness. In Revelation 3:15–16, God brings some of his strongest remarks against the church: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of My mouth.” Though these words were directed at the church at Laodicea, they could just as easily apply to the American church today.

North Texas same-sex couple makes history by carrying same baby

North Texas same-sex couple makes history by carrying same baby
(NY Post) In a medical first, two mothers have carried the same baby: Ashleigh Coulter gave birth to a son both she and her wife Bliss Coulter carried, thanks to a breakthrough method of in vitro fertilization. The method, called Effortless Reciprocal IVF, allowed Bliss to incubate her own embryo. Then, the embryo was placed inside Ashleigh, where it grew until she delivered: In June, Stetson was born at a healthy 8 pounds, 3 ounces.

“I’m excited to put all this in his baby book!” Ashleigh, 29, tells The Post of the medical breakthrough. The couple from Texas sought out the treatment because they wanted a way for both of them to be involved in the pregnancy. And simply using a sperm donor would have meant only one of them could have carried the child — then, “the other partner has to adopt a child,” Ashleigh says.

2 Martyred Christians Told Islamists ‘Christ Is Their Savior;’ Families Long to See Them in Heaven
(The Christian Post) Two Christians who were murdered for their faith by Islamic radicals in Kenya apparently told the terrorists that “Christ is their savior” and that they cannot betray their faith. International Christian Concern reported on the statements of witnesses and heartbroken families a month after the two Christians, Fredrick Ngui Ngonde and Joshua Ooko Obila, were shot dead by Somalia-based terror group al-Shabaab for refusing to recite the Islamic creed.

“The armed Somali fighters ordered all of us to [get off of] the bus and produce our identity cards. They singled out three passengers and ordered them to remain down the bus as we boarded. They asked them if they were Muslims and if they knew the Shahada and the seven verses of Suratul Fatiha. One of them recited part of the Shahada and was allowed to [return] to the bus,” a witness who wasn’t named told the watchdog group. “The other two kafir men refused to obey the jihad fighters and remained adamant that Christ is their savior and they cannot deny the Christian faith. They were shot dead.”

Pastor Arrested on Charges of Filming 100s of Voyeurism Videos of Female Staff, Students at School
(The Christian Post) A pastor and teacher at a Christian school in Washington state was arrested earlier this week and charged with filming hundreds of voyeurism videos of female staff and students. KIRO 7 reported that the videos of unsuspecting women and girls at Arlington Christian School were short cellphone clips that zoomed in on breasts, buttocks and crotches of the victims. Stephen Clark

Brown, a 61-year-old pastor at 7 Lakes Baptist Church, has been fired from the school, Q13 Fox added. He was booked on suspicion of voyeurism, with bond set at $100,000. Snohomish County prosecutor Travis Johnson said that investigators discovered the perpetrator was Brown because one of the videos showed his face. “I’m concerned that there are a number of victims (who) may have been violated in this school or church setting,” Johnson said in court on Tuesday.

Mysterious Cube-Shaped Object Near Sun Stirs UFO Conspiracy Theorists
(Express) A UFO as big as the Earth and shaped like a cube has been spotted near the sun, leading conspiracy theorists to believe it was using the star to refuel.  The strange cube-like object was spotted on NASA cameras, sending alien enthusiasts into a frenzy. The UFO was spotted on NASA’s SOHO camera Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) satellite by Scott C Waring, author of website UFO Sightings

Daily. The cube-UFO looks as if it has a huge plume coming out of the top, which may be being used to withdraw energy from the sun so that it can propel itself into deep space, according to a theory from Mr Waring. He writes on UFO Sightings Daily: “The UFO has a yellowish plume as if its been using the sun’s material as a propulsion of some sort.

Dems Promise Action on Major LGBTQ Legislation if They Retake House in Midterms

Dems Promise Action on Major LGBTQ Legislation if They Retake House in Midterms
(FaithWire) House Democrats are promising to take action on major pro-LGBTQ legislation if they regain the majority in the midterm elections Tuesday. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said recently she would introduce anti-discrimination legislation — the “Equality Act” — as one of the first orders of business, should Democrats gain control of the House of Representatives. The bill would expand the 1964 Civil Rights Act,

which already bans discrimination on the basis of race, sex, color, religion and nationality, to include discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation in places like retail shops, restaurants, realty, health care and social services, according to The News Tribune. Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, told the Tribune the pro-LGBTQ proposal would be given “a place of honor” on the agenda, meaning it would be among the first bills up for consideration.

Pakistan’s Supreme Court Aquits Asia Bibi of Blasphemy

Pakistan’s Supreme Court Aquits Asia Bibi of Blasphemy
(CBN News) “I am very happy. My children are very happy. We are grateful to God. We are grateful to the judges for giving us justice. We knew that she is innocent,” he said. The 51-year-old Christian mother was arrested in 2009 after her Muslim co-workers accused her of insulting the Muslim prophet Mohammed – an offense punishable by death in Pakistan.

Bibi says she was falsely accused and is very respectful of Muslims and Mohammed. The alleged incident occurred when Bibi took a sip of water while she was working. Her Muslim colleagues accused her of contaminating the water because she was a Christian. She’s been sitting in prison ever since with the threat of execution hanging over her head.

Military’s border mission could increase to 15K troops
Oct 31, 2018 10:31 pm
Military’s border mission could increase to 15K troops
(ABC News) In a move with potentially major political implications just days before the midterm elections, President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the deployment of active duty forces to the southern U.S. border would increase dramatically — to 10,000 or 15,000 troops. “We have about 5,000. We’ll do up anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel on top of border patrol, ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement], and everybody else at the border,” Trump told reporters on the White House South Lawn on Wednesday.

The numbers cited by Trump would be a significant increase over the 5,200 active duty forces originally slated by U.S. Northern Command (Northcom) to stop a migrant caravan, still some 800 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. Fifteen thousand is roughly the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and three times the number in Iraq. Later on Wednesday, U.S. Northern Command announced that it now estimated that 7,000 active duty forces would be used for the mission to support Customs and Border Protection personnel.

Israel silent as Iran hit by violent computer virus…
(The Times Of Israel) Iranian infrastructure and strategic networks have come under attack in the last few days by a computer virus similar to Stuxnet but “more violent, more advanced and more sophisticated,” and Israeli officials are refusing to discuss what role, if any, they may have had in the operation, an Israeli TV report said Wednesday. The report came hours after Israel said its Mossad intelligence agency had thwarted an Iranian murder plot in Denmark, and two days after Iran acknowledged that President Hassan Rouhani’s

mobile phone had been bugged. It also follows a string of Israeli intelligence coups against Iran, including the extraction from Tehran in January by the Mossad of the contents of a vast archive documenting Iran’s nuclear weapons program, and the detailing by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the UN in September of other alleged Iranian nuclear and missile assets inside Iran, in Syria and in Lebanon.

Christian Pastor warns of ‘lurking’ satanic evil spirits tonight
(Express) Halloween revelers should beware of “lurking” demons and evil spirits as they go trick or treating tonight, according to a prominent Christian pastor. Halloween demons will be out in full force tonight, according to renowned US pastor Paul Begley who warned his fellow Christians not to engage with the ‘evil forces at play’. He claimed the satanic spirits will be “lurking” for the souls of the unaware as they

gather candy in their finest fancy dress this evening. Pastor Begley said: “I can’t stand Halloween. I hate Halloween – I really do.  “I just hate Halloween, ok, because of the evil that lurks and the demons. “You know, I’m a guy that deals with demonic spirits by casting them out in Jesus’ name.” The American preacher also warned of the evil behind the Halloween killer clown trend popularised in the UK in recent years.

Christian Parents in Canada Have Foster Application Rejected Over Beliefs on Homosexuality and Spanking

Christian Parents in Canada Have Foster Application Rejected Over Beliefs on Homosexuality and Spanking
(The Christian Post) A Canadian Christian couple says they’ve been barred from being foster parents because of their religious beliefs on raising children. Ontario’s Levi denBok explained in a series of Facebook posts, in which he also shared the rejection letter from Children’s Aid Services, that they were asked what church they attend, and what they believe about the Bible.

“Amanda and I have long felt that we were called to open up our home to foster and potentially to adopt. We love kids. We have enough food to share and enough space in our home and our hearts for a few more so we started a lengthy process with CAS,” denBok wrote in a post last week. “We just received the letter that we have been rejected,” he added.

He Started a Satanic Church on Halloween, but Less Than a Year Later He Was Radically Saved
(CBN News) The founder of a satanic church in Texas has converted to Christianity. Jacob McKelvy, formerly known as Jacob No, was instrumental in bringing together a group of “Luciferians” to form a Luciferian church. But on February 5, 2017, McKelvy and his wife renounced their ties with the Luciferian church, after becoming born-again Christians. “…(W)e were once covered in darkness and bound to each other in the Luciferian covenant,”

McKelvy said during a service at Spring First Church in Houston. “We were mired in the shadows of the adversarial influence and knew no love outside of each other. Today I rebuke, denounce and break the satanic covenant by the blood of Jesus.” McKelvy and his wife were both baptized at the end of the service. In an exclusive interview with CBN News, McKelvy shared how he became involved with Satanism.

5-year-old tests positive for meth after eating candy…
(ABC 6) Shortly after getting home from trick-or-treating Sunday 5-year-old Braylen Carwell began having some sort of seizure, and then police say hospital staff found the boy tested positive for methamphetamines in his system. Officers in Galion say they’re now investigating after his parents said it must have come from the trick-or-treat candy the boy had been eating shortly before it happened. “The left side of his face was just droopy and then he fell and then he couldn’t move his left arm.

And he didn’t know where he was, he didn’t know what he was doing,” said Braylen’s mother, Julia Pence. Braylen’s father told a responding officer that he’d taken his kids trick-or-treating for about two hours Sunday afternoon, and after getting home and changing, his little boy fell over and began having some sort of seizure. The dad said his son had only had a couple of pieces of candy and was playing with some sort of fake teeth, according to the officer.

Typhus cases reach 100 in LA; Disease spreading among homeless…
(Daily Mail) The number of flea-born Typhus cases in Los Angeles has hit 107. So far this year 72 patients have been recorded by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health with a further 15 in Long Beach and 20 in Pasadena. In the 2000s there were around 20 cases recorded per year and analysts are putting the dramatic rise down to a 47 percent increase in homelessness since 2012. One official in Long Beach told

NBC News that almost half a million potential cases are ‘under investigation.’ At the start of this month, Pasadena, a city in the north of the county and home to around 135,000 people, reported epidemic levels of typhus fever. But no new cases have been reported there since October 5. Flea-borne typhus occurs when feces from an infected insect come into contact with a person’s cut or gets rubbed into their eyes.

‘Churches’ Celebrate Halloween With Zombies, Dancing Skeletons, ‘Haunted Hayrides’ and ‘Spooktaculars’

‘Churches’ Celebrate Halloween With Zombies, Dancing Skeletons, ‘Haunted Hayrides’ and ‘Spooktaculars’
(Christian News Network) Conservative, Christian-identifying churches nationwide are hosting Halloween-themed events throughout the month of October, some featuring or including Halloween-centered sermons and performances, haunted hayrides, and/or costume contests with children and adults alike dressing up up as skeletons, ghosts, witches and other images of death or evil. Chet Gallagher, a Christian activist and missions pastor who formerly served as a Nevada police officer, recently posted a short video of a “trunk or treat” event being held at Journey Church in Lebanon, Tennessee.

He said in the recording that he decided to stop and to record video of the happenings outside of the church “to expose how absolutely horrific and wicked it can be for these ‘trunk or treat’ events.” Gallagher then walked to a van that was parked near the entrance to show that sitting inside the back of the open van was a life-size skeleton, with an inflatable angry ghost attached to the side of the vehicle. He noted that the parking lot was still busy after the event was over.

Jews outraged at Pence over prayer by ‘Christian rabbi’ after temple massacre
(Yahoo News) American Jews, in shock over the massacre of 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue, voiced outrage Tuesday after Vice President Mike Pence hosted an election event with a so-called “Christian rabbi.” Pence took part late Monday in a campaign rally for Lena Epstein, a Jewish Republican running for the House of Representatives, in suburban Detroit, Michigan. At the rally Loren Jacobs, who uses the title
“rabbi” but espouses Christianity, was invited to speak on behalf of the area’s Jewish community. Instead of opening up with prayers for the 11 Jews shot dead Saturday at the Tree of Life synagogue, Jacobs praised Jesus Christ and then offered prayers for four Republican candidates. “I pray that you will enable Vice President Pence to fulfill his many and important responsibilities with excellence,” he added.

Could Herpes virus be the cause of Alzheimer’s disease?

Could Herpes virus be the cause of Alzheimer’s disease?
(Yahoo News) More than 30 million people worldwide suffer from Alzheimer’s disease – the most common form of dementia. Unfortunately, there is no cure, only drugs to ease the symptoms. However, my latest review, suggests a way to treat the disease. I found the strongest evidence yet that the herpes virus is a cause of Alzheimer’s, suggesting that effective and safe antiviral drugs might be able to treat the disease. We might even be able to vaccinate our children against it. The virus implicated in Alzheimer’s disease, herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1),
is better known for causing cold sores. It infects most people in infancy and then remains dormant in the peripheral nervous system (the part of the nervous system that isn’t the brain and the spinal cord). Occasionally, if a person is stressed, the virus becomes activated and, in some people, it causes cold sores. We discovered in 1991 that in many elderly people HSV1 is also present in the brain. And in 1997 we showed that it confers a strong risk of Alzheimer’s disease when present in the brain of people who have a specific gene known as APOE4.

Ex-Gay ‘X-Factor’ Contestant Faces Backlash for Saying He Found Christ, Left LGBT Lifestyle
(The Christian Post) An ex-gay contestant on the Maltese version of the musical reality series “X Factor” has drawn backlash after he declared on the show that homosexual “love” is “sin” and that he left the lifestyle after he found Christ. Matthew Grech, a singer and vocal coach, appeared on “X Factor Malta” Sunday night. In a video interview segment that played before his performance, Grech declared: “I used to lead a homosexual
lifestyle, and then I found God. For a long time, I stopped following my passions to follow Jesus. There can be love between two men and two women, yes — but only friendship love. Everything else is a sin.” According to the Times of Malta, Grech’s pre-audition interview led to his audition video being pulled from YouTube and Facebook quickly after his audition was aired by national broadcaster TVM.

Can Christians Be Hexed?
Oct 29, 2018 09:41 pm
Can Christians Be Hexed?
(Charisma News) Every year, around October, Christian writers, bloggers and preachers discuss the positives or negatives to Halloween. Churches and ministries will not join in the festivities, but they may host a “harvest” party. It looks similar to other events going on in our neighborhoods, but officially it assuages people’s conscience because it’s not celebrating the “darkness.” And, every year without fail, Christians talk about the “evil” going on during this new season. Viral articles go to great lengths trying to convince Spirit-filled believers how not to be hexed.

And signs of being hexed may be exhaustion, unexplained fatigue, a migraine, sickness and more. Books will be written providing formulas for you to pray, making sure you’re “praying the correct prayers.” In a way, these prayers look similar to incantations themselves, but they mention the name Jesus. With the “current upsurge” this month of demonic activity, as covens meet, witches and warlock curses seem to be a concern. These things may seem to feel spiritually accurate, but the question is, are they biblically accurate? Within the pages of the Old Testament, Proverbs 26:2 says, “As the bird by flitting, as the swallow by flying, so the curse without cause will not alight.”

DEVELOPING: Trump sending 5,000 troops to the border
(Vox) President Donald Trump has ordered an additional 5,200 troops to “harden” the US-Mexico border before the so-called caravan of migrants from Central America seeking asylum and a new life in the US arrives. The group of about 4,000 migrants from mostly Honduras and Guatemala is currently 1,000 miles and weeks away from the US border. Senior officials from the Pentagon and the Customs and

Border Protection told reporters on Monday that 800 service members are already headed to Texas, with the remaining 4,400 arriving over the coming days. The forces, deployed as part of “Operation Faithful Patriot,” will include military police, pilots, and engineers and will be in the area from November 5 to December 15. The goal is to “harden our ports of entry,” in California, Arizona, and Texas, Customs and Border Protection chief Kevin McAleenan said.  READ MORE https://www.vox.com/2018/10/29/18026646/military-border-caravan-immigrants-trump-caravan

Holocaust Survivor Lives Through Synagogue Shooting — He Was Four Minutes Late
(CBN News) He’s faced death twice. Both times, he’s survived. Judah Samet, 80, narrowly escaped death more than 70 years ago in Germany’s Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, according to The Washington Post. He faced the same ghastly reality Saturday morning. After World War II, Samet fled to the U.S., leaving
behind his native Hungary. He almost died over the weekend, during a deadly shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue, where he’s worshipped for 54 years, when the suspected gunman, who “wanted all Jews to die,” killed 11 people. Saturday’s massacre marked the deadliest attack against Jewish people in U.S. history.

Mysterious object on space station live feed sparks NASA conspiracy frenzy
(Daily Star) Video footage shows the bizarre anomaly that was spotted during NASA’s live feed from space – which some think could be a UFO or alien spaceship. The clip reveals the moment the space agency’s second camera appeared to pixellate during the broadcast. Then, a few seconds later, a white-coloured object can be seen passing in the bottom-left corner. “I don’t think it is part of the ISS, it definitely seems alien-

like to me,” an anonymous source revealed. “I’m not sure if the object was moving through space, or if NASA was moving the camera away on purpose.” The footage was uploaded to YouTube channel secureteam10, where it has racked up more than 210,000 hits in two days. “It is blurred on purpose and NASA used software to pixellate the real object,” one viewer revealed.

RUMORS OF WAR: China military ordered to ‘prepare for war’ with west…
(The Scottish Sun) China’s President Xi Jinping has told his military commanders to “concentrate preparations for fighting a war” as Beijing ramps up fighting talk with the West.  The communist ruler’s instructions come amid rising tensions over the future of the South China Sea and Taiwan and weeks after a Chinese warship tried to ram a US Navy destroyer. China Central Television presented a speech from President Xi – who has claimed the position in perpetuity –
when he met troops and generals on a tour of Guangzhou province. He told officers of the Southern Theatre Command: “It’s necessary to strengthen the mission … and concentrate preparations for fighting a war. “We need to take all complex situations into consideration and make emergency plans accordingly.” He also reportedly said the regional command was having to bear a “heavy military responsibility” as it was responsible for operations in the disputed South China Sea.

New suspicious package addressed to CNN discovered at Atlanta post office
(NBC News) Another suspicious package was sent to CNN — the third mailed to the network in a week — and intercepted at an Atlanta post office, officials said on Monday. A U.S. Post Office at 400 Pryor Street SW was evacuated shortly after calls came to local police at 9:30 a.m., officials said. The bomb squads of both the FBI and Atlanta police rushed to the scene, which is about 1.2 miles from CNN headquarters in Atlanta, according to federal officials.

An FBI spokesman on Monday morning declined to speculate if this package could be the work of suspect Cesar Sayoc. But hours later, the FBI confirmed this latest Atlanta package is “similar in appearance to” one addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan and another to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, both sent to CNN’s offices in New York.

Gab’s Hosting Provider Moves to Shut Down the Alt-Right Social Network
(Daily Beast) In the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, the social media network Gab—where suspected attacker Robert Bowers posted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories—announced that its new hosting provider had pulled its services. Late Saturday night, hours after Paypal had kicked Gab off its own platform, Gab’s Twitter account announced that hosting provider Joyent was also dropping the network over a breach of terms of service. “Gab will likely be down for weeks because of this. Working on
solutions,” one tweet said. The network catered to right-wing extremists and in the days leading up to the attack, Bowers posted neo-Nazi conspiracies on Gab. Just before the shooting, he sent a final, ominous post to the site: “Screw your optics, I’m going in.” In a statement on Saturday, Gab condemned “all acts of terrorism and violence” and said it had removed Bowers’ account and was cooperating with authorities. At the same time, it celebrated its newfound infamy, posting that it had received a million hits per hour after the attack. After tweeting the news about Joyent, Gab vowed, “Big tech cannot stop us. The mainstream media cannot stop us.”

More Than 20 Chinese Christians Detained for Street Evangelism
(China Aid) Police in China’s southern Sichuan arrested more than 20 Christians from Early Rain Covenant Church in Chengdu last Sunday as they evangelized on the streets and detained them until evening. On Oct. 20, the church organized a street evangelism team and proselytized on the street, as well as held a worship service in a local park. More than 20 of them were taken into custody and held at two police stations.
The Christians took turns sharing their faith while at the station. Meanwhile, their fellow church members prayed that they would “be filled with the power of joy, peace, and grace,” and those who were not arrested either continued to preach in the streets or gathered outside of the police stations to wait for news.

‘Halloween draws children to Satan & suicide,’ must be banned in Russian schools – pro-Christian MP
(RT News) Controversial pro-Christian MP, Vitaly Milonov, has urges Education Minister, Olga Vasilyeva, to forbid celebrations of “pagan Satan-worshiping holiday” Halloween in Russian schools and severely punish those, who violate the ban. In his address, Milonov said had been receiving numerous complaints from parents, who are “alarmed” by plans to stage Halloween celebrations at schools and colleges where their kids study.
“Many schoolchildren are being persuaded to participate in this shady holiday. They are being forced to make costumes of imps, decorate classrooms with otherworldly attributes and prepare thematic plays.” The ruling United Russia Party deputy stated that Halloween, which only came to the country in recent decades after the fall of Soviet Union, isn’t part of the Russian culture and traditions.

DEVELOPING: Passenger airliner crashes in Indonesia; 189 feared dead
(Fox News) A brand-new jet airliner carrying 189 passengers and crew crashed into the sea shortly after takeoff from Indonesia’s capital on Monday, prompting a major effort in the region that soon turned from rescue to recovery when officials disclosed there were likely no survivors. The Lion Air Boeing 737-800 aircraft had just taken off from Jakarta when the pilot requested to return to the airport three minutes into the

flight. Data for Lion Air’s Flight 610 on aircraft tracking website FlightAware ends just a few minutes following takeoff, with the plane at an altitude of only 5,200 feet. An air transport official, Novie Riyanto, told the Associated Press the flight was cleared to return to Jakarta after the pilot made a “return to base” request, but the flight plunged into the sea about 10 minutes later.

Pittsburgh synagogue massacre ‘deadliest anti-Semitic attack in US’ history
(Yahoo News) A gunman shouting “all Jews must die” burst into a Pittsburgh synagogue during a circumcision ceremony on Saturday, shooting dead 11 people. Robert Bowers, 46, wielding an arsenal that included a semi-automatic rifle and three handguns, also left six others wounded, including four police officers, during the 20-minute attack. The shooting happened at the Tree of Life Congregation in a leafy suburb in

the heart of its Jewish community in Pennsylvania. About 100 people were in the synagogue at the time. It was not known if the baby being circumcised, during a ceremony known as a bris, was harmed. Bowers, who was in fair condition at a hospital after being shot several times by police, was charged late on Saturday with 29 federal counts, including hate crimes and weapons offenses.

Pastor Issues Urgent Warning for Christians Who Watch Porn, Play Video Games
(CBN News) Ben Stuart has dedicated his life to encouraging young adults to live their lives for God. In a message delivered at a Texas convention last week, the pastor of Passion City Church in Washington, D.C., and author of “Single, Dating, Engaged, Married: Navigating Life and Love in the Modern Age,” implored young adults to not waste their time on things like pornography and video games.

“The real world is on fire,” Stuart said Thursday at the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s conference, according to The Christian Post. Given this, he argued there is no time to waste on the imaginary worlds of pornography and video games. The ERLC’s conference called “The Cross-Shaped Family” worked to educate on what the Bible says about family life.

(Fox News) A gunman opened fire inside a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning, killing multiple people and injuring six others, including four police officers, before being taken into custody, authorities said. The brazen attack occurred inside the Tree of Life Synagogue in the city’s predominantly Jewish Squirrel Hill neighborhood just 10 minutes from downtown. Multiple law enforcement officials identified the suspect in the shooting as Robert Bowers, 48.

Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said the suspect was taken to a hospital but did not clarify if he was one of the six people injured. A visibly emotional Hissrich told reporters the four officers had non-life threatening injuries while the others were critical. He could not immediately confirm how many people died in the shooting. Hissrich said the incident fell under a hate crime and will be a federal investigation. He said there appeared to be no active threat to the community.

Colorado Strikes at Christian Baker Jack Phillips Again…and He Strikes Back
Oct 26, 2018 07:24 pm
Colorado Strikes at Christian Baker Jack Phillips Again…and He Strikes Back
(CBN News) Masterpiece Cakeshop baker Jack Phillips is now both on offense and defense as Colorado comes after him again. This time it’s for him refusing to bake a cake to mark a transgender changing from male to female. Meanwhile, he’s suing the state. The state agency acting against Phillips lost at the US Supreme Court this past June in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case, with justices specifically blasting the commissioners for hostility towards Phillips’ religious beliefs. Those

commissioners nearly killed Phillips’ business when they ruled he’d discriminated by refusing to make a cake to celebrate a homosexual couple’s same-sex marriage. The commission is going after the Christian baker a second time, now for his refusal to bake a transgender celebration cake. Phillips’ friend Jeff Hunt, a policy analyst at Colorado Christian University, told CBN News, “At this point, they’re just targeting Christians. This is outright Christian persecution.”

Anti-Trump Posters in New York Depict Evangelicals and Trump Supporters as ‘Trash’
(CBN News) New Yorkers woke up Thursday morning to find colorful new street art popping up on trash cans along the Lower East Side. Their message is clear – Trump and his supporters are “trash.” The controversial posters feature images of “Trump supporter” stereotypes with the words, “Keep NYC Trash Free.” One
version of the poster shows a white man with a heart shaped-Confederate flag tattoo wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and holding a Chick-fil-A cup. Another features a white woman wearing a “Make America Great Again Hat” while holding the Bible. Most of the posters have been removed and New York’s Department of Sanitation told PIX 11 it is “looking into this matter.”

The Sick, Twisted Meaning Behind Halloween’s Jack-O’-Lanterns
Oct 26, 2018 07:11 pm
The Sick, Twisted Meaning Behind Halloween’s Jack-O’-Lanterns
(Charisma News) The upcoming Halloween celebration dates back to the Druids, who used the holiday for various pagan religious practices including human sacrifice. There is nothing Christian about it. Yet there is one interesting story about the Halloween celebration that illustrates how the pagans tried to appropriate the stars into their religions. It is the story of the jack-o’-lantern, that pumpkin with a face carved out and a candle inside. This seemingly benign decoration represents a much more gruesome picture from the rituals of past ages:
A frightful severed head. And the picture comes straight from the Star Bible, even though the real meaning is very different. The “jack-o-lantern” in the sky is the star Algol (“evil spirit”). It is part of the constellation Perseus, (the breaker), which is a picture of Christ who breaks open a way for us (Mic. 2:13) and breaks open the seals in Revelation 5. Algol pictures the severed evil head of the nations, the Antichrist, whose head is cut off from the nations when Christ returns (Rev. 19:20). So the frightful jack-o’-lantern is really a picture of the return and triumph of Christ.

Israeli Air Force Strikes Gaza After 16 Rockets Fired Into Israel’s South
(Haaretz) The Israeli air force struck Gaza late Friday night after 16 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza. Ten of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, the military said. Media outlets in Gaza reported that Israel struck targets in the area of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip in retaliation. Seven different alarm sirens were activated throughout the night in Israel’s southern communities
including the city of Sderot near the Gaza border. Seven people have been treated for shock trauma in Sderot according to a Magen David Adom spokesperson. A 53-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy were lightly injured after running for protection when sirens sounded. Some residents reported hearing explosions, with some saying they witnessed interceptions by the Iron Dome missile defense system. No damage or serious injuries have been reported.

Texas Judge Rejects Christians’ Lawsuit Against ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’
Oct 26, 2018 03:30 pm
Texas Judge Rejects Christians’ Lawsuit Against ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’
(The Christian Post) A Houston federal judge dismissed on Wednesday a legal case led by conservative Christians against a local public library’s “Drag Queen Story Hour” events. A number of Christians joined the lawsuit against Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Rhea Lawson, head of the city’s library system, arguing that the events featuring drag queens reading to children are a promotion of secular religion, and violate the freedom of religion clause in the Constitution. Chief U.S. District Judge Lee H.
Rosenthal issued a short order, explaining the decision in only two sentences: “There is no basis to support the requested relief. The application is denied.” Houston businessman Tex Christopher, one of the plaintiffs, suggested that he will be pushing on with the lawsuit and will seek to make his arguments in court, the Houston Chronicle reported. “I’m taking a stand for righteousness,” Christopher said. “I’m calling out Mayor Turner.”

Fingerprint Led FBI To Package Bomb Suspect Cesar Sayoc
(CBS Miami) Federal authorities have arrested a man in Plantation in connection to a series of package bombs that have been sent to top Democrats and President Trump critics, according to CBS News.  The man was taken into custody at an Auto Zone store on State Road 7 at SW 6th Street around 10:30 a.m. A “loud explosion” was heard at the time of the arrest, possibly from a flash bang device used by FBI in the course of making the arrest.

A law enforcement source told CBS4 the man is 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc and they were led to him through DNA evidence. The FBI “uncovered a latent fingerprint from one of the envelopes containing an IED that had been sent to Maxine Waters. We have confirmed this fingerprint is that of Cesar Sayoc,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray at a news conference Friday afternoon. Wray cautioned that just because the FBI has a suspect in custody, that does mean its over.

Singer Sinead O’Conner converts to Islam…
(France 24) Outspoken Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has announced she has converted to Islam and changed her name to Shuhada. Having adopted the name Magda Davitt last year, the 51-year-old is now called Shuhada Davitt. She also changed her Twitter avatar to a black-and-white image of the Nike Swoosh logo and the slogan: “Wear a hijab. Just do it.” “This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim.

This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey,” she tweeted. “All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant. I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada.” Her Twitter account says the singer now lives in “Direland”. O’Connor’s 1990 hit “Nothing Compares 2 U” became a global hit, with her haunting voice, shaved head and single-tone outfits turning her into both an enigmatic and captivating figure.

Where Does The Tradition Of Wearing Halloween Costumes Come From?
Oct 26, 2018 09:58 am
Where Does The Tradition Of Wearing Halloween Costumes Come From?
(Michael Snyder) The modern tradition of wearing costumes on Halloween can be traced back more than 2000 years to the Celts of ancient Britain. During a Druidic festival known as Samhain, which is still celebrated by Wiccans and other modern pagans, revelers would often wear masks or costumes. In modern times wearing costumes is considered to be “innocent fun”, but in those times the masks and costumes were worn for very specific spiritual purposes.
For some, the goal was to ward off evil spirits, but for others the purpose of the mask or costume was to help the participant communicate with the spirit world. And as you will see below, there are some that still believe in this practice today. Samhain is the day when the Celts believed that “the veil between the living and the dead” was the thinnest. It is a day that has always been closely associated with human death, and according to the History Channel it is supposedly a time when “the ghosts of the dead returned to earth”…

Georgia toddler paralyzed overnight as AFM fears grow nationwide

Georgia toddler paralyzed overnight as AFM fears grow nationwide
(WSBTV) A Georgia mother said her toddler went to bed sick and woke up paralyzed from the neck down. It’s the latest in a series of mysterious illnesses that are baffling doctors. Two young patients were recently treated at Scottish Rite after they fell ill and then woke up partially paralyzed. Doctors are still working to figure out what causes acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, but they tell Channel 2 Action News the rare

condition is similar to polio, in that it can cause muscle weakness or partial paralysis. And like polio, doctors believe AFM is caused by a virus, but they don’t know which virus. That was the case for a 2-year-old Abigail. Her mother said one moment she was a healthy child who came down with a double ear infection and fever. Then a few days later, she woke up paralyzed from the neck down.

Dozens more breakfast foods test positive for trace amounts of weed killer

Dozens more breakfast foods test positive for trace amounts of weed killer
(CNN) Dozens of common breakfast cereals and snack bars have trace amounts of a controversial herbicide found in the weed killer Roundup, according to a report released today by an environmental advocacy group. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that 26 of the 28 products it tested had levels of Roundup’s main ingredient, glyphosate, that were “higher than what EWG scientists consider protective

of children’s health.” An earlier report found similar results in over thirty oat-based foods. Manufacturers say their products are safe, but the EWG report argues that the vast majority of foods tested — such as Honey Nut Cheerios and Quaker Simply Granola Oats — have glyphosate levels that might pose a cancer risk with long-term consumption.

Broadcast TV Hits Record Percentage of LGBTQ Regulars
(The Hollywood Reporter) For the first time in the history of GLAAD’s ‘Where We Are on TV’ report, LGBTQ characters of color also outnumber those that are white. Broadcast television is enlisting a record percentage of LGBTQ characters and featuring those of color more often than those that are white for the first time in the 2018-19 television season, a report published Thursday found. GLAAD’s annual Where We Are on TV report

found that LGBTQ characters make up 8.8 percent of all regular characters this season, up 2.4 percent from the 2017-18 season. (Last season had previously held the record for largest percentage in the report’s 23-year history.) Among those characters, 22 percent are black, 8 percent Latinx and 8 percent Asian Pacific Islander, which represents a historical high for black characters and a tie with last year’s findings on Latinx characters.

Government warns 18 volcanoes pose ‘very high threat,’ in the US
(Global News) Government scientists are classifying 18 U.S. volcanoes as a “very high threat” because of what’s been happening inside them and how close they are to people. The U.S. Geological Survey is updating its volcano threat assessments for the first time since 2005. The danger list is topped by Hawaii’s Kilauea, which has been erupting this year. The others in the top five are Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier in

Washington, Alaska’s Redoubt Volcano and California’s Mount Shasta. The agency says a dozen volcanoes have jumped in threat level since 2005. Twenty others dropped in threat level. Among those where the threat score is higher are Alaska’s Redoubt, Mount Okmok, Akutan Island and Mount Spurr. Threat scores also rose for Oregon’s Newberry Volcano and Wyoming’s Yellowstone.

NATO shows military might in giant exercises…  Largest since the Cold War
(Yahoo News) NATO began its biggest military exercises since the end of the Cold War in Norway on Thursday, proof of the US’ “rock-solid” commitment to the alliance’s collective defense, US Navy Admiral James Foggo said, as Moscow denounced the maneuvers as “anti-Russian”. Around 50,000 soldiers, 10,000 vehicles, 65 ships and 250 aircraft from 31 countries were taking part in Trident Juncture 18,

which is aimed at training the Atlantic Alliance to defend a member state after an aggression. The show of force comes amid recent concerns over US President Donald Trump’s commitment to NATO, in particular, the “Article 5” mutual defense clause which requires all member states to come to the aid of another member state.

Pittsburgh City Council Demands Local Marathon To Scrap ‘Hateful’ Chick-fil-A Sponsorship
(The Christian Post) Pittsburgh school board and city council members are pressuring the Pittsburgh Marathon to disallow Chick-fil-A from being the main sponsor for an upcoming children’s marathon race in May. According to a proposed resolution due before the Pittsburgh Public Schools board, district employees and schools would be banned from participating in “an official capacity” in the one-mile Kids Marathon unless event

organizers scrap the fast food chain’s sponsorship, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. The children’s race is held the day before the actual Pittsburgh marathon. “They have several beliefs, which they’ve expressed officially, largely through religious basis, that are quite discriminatory and are quite inconsistent with the district’s policies regarding discrimination on the basis of gender, race, etc.,” Ira Weiss, the school solicitor, said of the famous chicken sandwich company.

Christian Cross Removed, Protestant Church ‘Purified’ Into Animist Religion in India
(The Christian Post) Followers of a Hindu religion in India seized a Protestant church and removed its cross and held a “purification” ceremony in the building that was once used to worship Jesus Christ. UCA News reported that on Oct. 20, 50 tribunal people from the Sarna faith took down the cross from Vishwa Vani church in Khadnga village, Jharkhand state. They converted the building into a community hall following a purification ceremony.

The Sarna people, who make up close to 5 million in India, have claimed that Christian missionaries have taken over thousands of acres of tribal land in violation of state law, buildings churches, schools, hospitals and other establishments with the mission of converting others to Christianity. Pastor Emmanuel Kujur, the coordinator of the Protestant group in the state, said that the ground on which the church was built on was disputed, adding that it had been donated by a tribal Christian.

NASA scientists baffled by perfectly rectangular Mile-Wide iceberg
(Express) NASA has made a remarkable discovery of a mile-wide rectangular iceberg with perfect right-angled corners in Antarctica. The stunning iceberg was spotted floating in the Weddell Sea last week by scientists on a NASA research plane.  The US space agency said the object’s sharp angles and flat surface suggested it had recently broken away from the Larsen C ice shelf.

It is estimated to be around 1 mile (1.6km) wide. However, its true size may never be known with only 10 percent of its total mass showing above the water. The iceberg found is known as a ”tabular iceberg” instantly recognizable by its smooth clean-cut edges as if carved with a knife. Its perfect edges are formed by breaking off ice shelves with clear precision but are rarely kept in that state for very long.

RUMORS OF WAR: Putin warns that Russia will target nations hosting US missiles

RUMORS OF WAR: Putin warns that Russia will target nations hosting US missiles
(ABC News) Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Wednesday that if the United States deploys intermediate-range missiles in Europe, Russia will have to target the nations that would host them. The stern statement follows U.S. President Donald Trump’s announcement over the weekend that he intends to opt out of a 1987 nuclear arms control pact over alleged Russian violations. Putin said he hoped the United States wouldn’t follow up by positioning intermediate-range missiles in Europe.

Such a move would be a repeat of a Cold War showdown in the 1980s, when the U.S. and the Soviet Union both deployed intermediate-range missiles on the continent, the Russian leader said. “If they are deployed in Europe, we will naturally have to respond in kind,” Putin said at a news conference after talks with visiting Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

RUMORS OF WAR: Retired General warns “War with China likely in 15 years”
(Military Times) The former commander of the U.S. Army in Europe says it’s likely the United States will be at war with China in 15 years. Retired Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges said at a Warsaw security forum on Wednesday that European allies will have to do more to ensure their own defenses against Russia as Americans focus

more on the Pacific. Hodges said: “I think in 15 years — it’s not inevitable, but it is a very strong likelihood — that we will be at war with China. The United States does not have the capacity to do everything it has to do in Europe and in the Pacific to deal with the Chinese threat.”

Dow erases gains for the year, tumbles more than 600 points
(CNBC) Stocks plummeted on Wednesday as a sharp drop in tech shares and worries about corporate earnings added fuel to this month’s steep pullback. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 608.01 points at 24,583.42 and erased all of its gains for 2018. The S&P 500 dropped 3.1 percent to 2,656.10 and also turned negative for the year. The Nasdaq Composite fell 4.4 percent to 7,108.40— entering correction territory — as Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet all traded lower.

“An increasingly murky macro picture is clouding the 2019 earnings outlook leaving investors to largely shrug off a solid start to the third quarter earnings season,” said Alec Young, managing director of global markets research at FTSE Russell. “While valuations have certainly come down in recent weeks, at 16 times forward earnings for the Russell 1000 index, they aren’t in the bargain basement by any means, especially if earnings growth slows more than expected next year.”

Suspicious Packages Similar to Other Devices Addressed to Joe Biden, Robert De Niro; Total Seized Stands at 9
(NBC New York) Investigators seized two more suspected package explosives — one addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden in Delaware and one addressed to Robert De Niro in New York — early Thursday, bringing the total number of confiscated devices sent to high-profile Democrats and others to nine in 72 hours. News of the De Niro device broke first. That one was addressed to him and had been sent to a Greenwich Street

building he owns that houses offices for Tribeca Films and Tribeca Grill, law enforcement officials tell News 4. A building worker called police early Thursday because, after seeing Wednesday’s news, he remembered seeing a similar package a day or so ago. The device was removed from the property and no evacuation was ordered; the building was unoccupied.

Record numbers of West Nile virus cases reported in parts of US
(The Guardian) Parts of the US have reported record numbers of West Nile virus infections, with experts warning that warming temperatures and flooding driven by climate change is heightening the risk of Americans contracting the debilitating disease. Cases of West Nile virus have been reported in every US state except Hawaii so far this year, leading to deaths in Georgia,

surging numbers of patients in Pennsylvania and record numbers of infections in Massachusetts. Texas is also set for an unusually large number of cases of the mosquito-borne virus this year, with Kristy Murray, a vice-chair of research at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, reporting “a really big year” in terms of the number of patients presenting with the disease.

Police foil Girls plan to attack and kill at least 15 students in Florida Middle School
(FOX 13) – Police say they stopped two students from carrying out a plot to go on a stabbing spree at Bartow Middle School Tuesday. Police say a teacher told the principal after hearing about the plan from a student, and the principal notified authorities. The two female students, ages 11 and 12, were apparently found hiding inside a bathroom just before they planned to carry out the attack. The girls were found by

the assistant principal in a search of the school after one of the students was reported missing from class. After being brought to the principal’s office, officers on campus discovered the girls had armed themselves with several weapons including paring and butcher knives, along with a pizza cutter, and planned to attack other students during the school day. The girls admitted to being Satan worshipers and told police they were planning on attacking and killing as many students as possible.

UPDATE: Explosives Sent to Hillary Clinton, Obama, CNN and George Soros Are Linked, Sources Say; 2 Other Parcels Investigated
(NBC New York) Four “potential explosive devices” sent to Hillary Clinton, former President Obama, billionaire philanthropist George Soros and CNN at Manhattan’s Time Warner Center are thought to be linked, law enforcement sources say — and officials are looking into whether at least one other parcel had a similar signature. News about a similar fifth package — one addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder that ended up at the Florida office of ex-Democratic National Committee chairman Debbie Wasserman

Schultz, which was the return address listed — broke hours later. Then, NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo revealed a sixth package had been discovered at his office in Manhattan; a senior law enforcement official tells News 4 that package was not linked to the others. Later Wednesday, Congressional leadership sources confirmed to NBC News that a suspicious device intercepted at a mail processing facility for the U.S. Capitol was addressed to California Rep. Maxine Waters. That device’s nature, and possible connection to the others, was not immediately clear.

Super Typhoon Yutu, the most powerful tropical cyclone on Earth in 2018, barrels towards Northern Mariana Islands
(AccuWeather) Super Typhoon Yutu will bring risks ranging from flooding and destructive winds and dangerous seas to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. Yutu quickly strengthened from a tropical depression on Sunday into a super typhoon by Wednesday as it became the strongest tropical cyclone so far this year. A direct hit is expected on Tinian and Saipan on Wednesday night, dealing a catastrophic blow to both islands.

A northwest track into Thursday will take the center of the tropical cyclone across both Tinian and Saipan, bringing winds in excess of 240 km/h (150 mph). Winds of this magnitude can completely destroy homes and businesses and leave areas without power for a week or longer. While Guam and Rota are expected to dodge the worst impacts, there can still be damaging winds across Rota and locally damaging winds across Guam into Thursday.

Why Implanted Microchips in Humans Could Go Mainstream Sooner than Later
Oct 24, 2018 10:06 am
Why Implanted Microchips in Humans Could Go Mainstream Sooner than Later
(CBN News) Experts admit that, so far, getting humans to adopt microchip implants has been a tough sell. Many Christians reject them because of concern they could be a prelude to “the mark of the Beast” which Revelation chapter 13 says will be “a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads.” But the marketing “tipping point” for implantable chips, writes The Atlantic, will come “when they become so useful they’re

hard to refuse; when their benefits outweigh our anxieties about them. It could happen sooner than you think.” Right now, thousands of people in countries like Germany and Sweden have already opted to get chipped for easier financial transactions. Sven Becker, head of “I am Robot,” tells Euronews that 2,000 to 3,500 people in Germany have implanted a microchip under their skin “as a substitute for key cards to the gym, office, and house.”

7 Shocking Facts About How Early Christians Worshipped
Oct 24, 2018 09:57 am
7 Shocking Facts About How Early Christians Worshipped
(Charisma News) Over 2 billion people who profess belief in Christianity each Sunday gather all over the world to worship God. It is a remarkable occurrence that should make us think and give pause over the significance of such a united event weekly. Just imagine in your mind when praying and bowing the head, when lifting up your hands or voice in worship: You are at the same time joining countless other believers at that very minute in the same worship of our Risen Lord. It all goes back to apostles who walked the dirt trails of

Israel with a radical rabbi who taught with “authority,” not like the scribes. Jesus did not institute verbatim the Lord’s Day, or command His disciples to gather on the first day of every week with significance and purpose. He rather followed the custom of His day in attending the synagogue services along with other devout religious of the day. It was not until after the Messiah was resurrected and had ascended that the apostles—in many cases no longer accepted in the synagogues—by the direction of the Holy Spirit encouraged the weekly gathering of disciples of Jesus. Why did they meet and gather? It was simple: to remember the Lord.

New Study Reveals Couples Who Live Together Before Marriage Are at Greater Risk of Divorce
Oct 24, 2018 09:38 am
New Study Reveals Couples Who Live Together Before Marriage Are at Greater Risk of Divorce
(CBN News) Couples who choose to live together before they are married are at greater risk of getting a divorce, according to a new study.  The study was published in the September issue of the Journal of Marriage and Family.  The “premarital cohabitation effect”, which has been studied by social scientists for several years, and appears to be a real fact in terms that two people who live together before getting married are more likely to struggle during marriage.

Authors Michael Rosenfeld and Katharina Roesler conclude that the struggles of these couples mean an increased risk of divorce. They contend that past researchers who have argued that the cohabitation effect disappeared were biased, looking at short-term rather than long-term effects. They argue couples who go straight into marriage without living together have a larger immediate shock to negotiate after marriage and thus have a short-term increased risk greater than those already living together.

DEVELOPING: Suspicious package found at home of Clinton’s, Day after bomb found at home of Soros

DEVELOPING: Suspicious package found at home of Clinton’s, Day after bomb found at home of Soros
(NBC New York) The concern is that the package is similar to the bomb found in the mailbox of billionaire philanthropist George Soros’ home in the same county days earlier. Two senior law enforcement officials say a suspicious package was found at the Chappaqua home of Hillary and Bill Clinton Wednesday, and the concern is that the package is similar to the bomb found in the mailbox of billionaire philanthropist

George Soros’ home in the same county days earlier. No further details were immediately available Wednesday. The incident comes two days after a bomb was planted in the mailbox at Soros’ Bedford home. No one was hurt in that case. It’s not clear if the cases, both in Westchester County, could be related. In Soros’ case, an employee noticed the package, put it in a wooded area and called police, who alerted the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives. A law enforcement source told NBC 4 New York that the device contained explosive powder; it was detonated as a precaution.

Violent storm drops huge hail, Produces massive hail accumulations in Rome, Italy
(The Watchers) Intense storms brought heavy rain, strong winds and up to tennis-ball-sized hail to Rome, Italy on the evening of October 21, 2018. The city was brought to a standstill, forcing some of the drivers in the city’s eastern part to abandon their cars and hide from the storm as massive chunks of ice started falling from the sky. The 4th-century basilica of San Sebastiano Fuori le Mura was flooded in up to 50 cm (1.6 feet) of water. Similar events took place in Florence and Pisa.

Northern Italy, as well as Sicily, were also affected by the storm. The Italian Civil Protection department has issued an orange warning for bad weather in four regions of the country, with nearly the entire south under a yellow warning, according to ANSA. “Moderately critical” (orange) warnings for storm risk in Basilicata and Molise and hydrogeological risk in Campania and Puglia. A yellow alert is in place for storm, flooding, and hydrogeological risk in Abruzzo, Calabria, Lazio, Molise, Puglia and Sicily. Farmers’ association Coldiretti called it a “calamity for Italian farming” with millions of euros in losses.”

Hawaiian island completely erased by powerful hurricane

Hawaiian island completely erased by powerful hurricane
(The Guardian) A piece of the United States has been dramatically wiped off the map after an island in Hawaii was washed away by a powerful hurricane. East Island, a remote spit of gravel and sand that sat atop a coral reef, has vanished after having this misfortune to come into contact with Hurricane Walaka, an intense storm that surged past Hawaii earlier this month. Scientists have confirmed the disappearance of the 11-acre island after comparing satellite images of the surrounding French Frigate Shoals, part of an

enormous protected marine area in the northwestern Hawaiian Islands. “I uttered a swear word. I had a holy cow moment, somewhat in disbelief that it had disappeared,” said Chip Fletcher, a professor of earth sciences at the University of Hawaii. Fletcher and his colleagues were in the process of researching East Island through drone videos and taking samples of sand and corals to ascertain the age of the island and gauge its future prospects in the face of climate change.

2018 Hurricane season most powerful on record…
Oct 24, 2018 09:10 am
2018 Hurricane season most powerful on record…
(USA Today) The oceans near North America have been angry this year. When all the hurricanes and tropical storms that have formed in the Atlantic and eastern Pacific Oceans this year are added together, the 2018 hurricane season is the most active season ever recorded, Colorado State University meteorologist Phil Klotzbach announced Tuesday. Florence and Michael were the most destructive storms in the Atlantic,

while the eastern Pacific featured several powerhouse storms, including Lane, Rosa, Sergio and now, Willa. To determine the strength of a given season, scientists use the “Accumulated Cyclone Energy” (ACE) index, which adds together the intensity and duration of all the tropical storms and hurricanes that formed. So far in 2018, the ACE for the Atlantic and eastern Pacific seasons together is 432 units of energy, shattering the record of 371, which was set in 1992, Klotzbach said.

Atheists Put an End to Police Prayer Vigils in Louisiana
Oct 23, 2018 07:47 pm
Atheists Put an End to Police Prayer Vigils in Louisiana
(The Christian Post) A police department in Louisiana will no longer host or promote citywide monthly prayer vigils following a complaint from one of the nation’s leading atheist groups. The Shreveport Police Department, which is led by Baptist pastor and Police Chief Alan Crump, has agreed to no longer organize prayer gatherings after it received a letter from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation. The letter was sent in late August and objected to the fact that the police department “organizes and promotes prayer
vigils” on behalf of about 20 pastors who are involved in the department’s “Pastors on Patrol” chaplaincy program, according to KTBS. According to a screenshot of a department Facebook post promoting the event, the monthly prayer vigil was designed to “unite community, police and community leaders in prayer” for the city. FFRF’s letter not only called for an end to the prayer vigils but also for an end to the department’s chaplaincy program.

‘Let’s Not Sacrifice the Gospel for Coolness’: Greg Laurie on Reaching America’s Next Generation
(The Christian Post) Greg Laurie has become one of the most well-known preachers in America. He’s the founder of Harvest Crusade and Harvest America and the pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, but the well-known faith leader wasn’t always a believer. In fact, his early years were characterized by a lack of faith, drugs and generally moving in the “wrong direction.”
Laurie, author of the new book, Jesus Revolution: How God Transformed an Unlikely Generation and How He Can Do It Again Today, recently appeared on PureFlix.com’s “Pure Talk” to reveal his spiritual journey — and his quest to reach youths with the Gospel. “I was a 17-year-old kid. I was using drugs every single day. I was going in the wrong direction in my life,” he said, noting that he stumbled upon a Bible study one day on the lawn of his high school, and it changed everything. “I sat down close enough to eavesdrop on what was being said.”

DEVELOPING: 6 children dead, 12 sick in viral outbreak at New Jersey rehabilitation center
(WABC) Six children are dead and 12 others sick following a severe viral outbreak at a rehabilitation center in New Jersey. The state Department of Health on Tuesday confirmed 18 cases of adenovirus at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell, Passaic County. Adenoviruses usually cause mild illnesses,
but the health department says this outbreak is particularly severe because it is affecting medically fragile children with severely compromised immune systems. “This strain has been particularly associated with disease in communal living facilities,” the department said in a statement. “The combination of a worse strain of adenovirus together with a fragile population has led to a more severe outbreak.”

Andrew Brunson’s Miraculous Release Is Proof That Prayer Really Works

Andrew Brunson’s Miraculous Release Is Proof That Prayer Really Works
(Charisma News) Frankly, I was not surprised when Pastor Andrew Brunson said that praying and knowing people were praying for him kept him sane and hopeful after being imprisoned in Turkey. “When I was arrested, and it kept going on and on, and it seemed there was no way out … I lost a lot of hope,” Brunson said. “What helped me—I began to see that there was value in my suffering, especially as time went on. I saw that many people around the world began praying for me. And I began to see that God was involved in this.”
How could he know people all over the world—including me—were praying for him? The Turkish authorities allowed Brunson’s wife Norine to visit him about once a week, for 30 minutes. The two of them would speak over the phone through a glass window, and in those precious moments they could share together, she made sure he knew people were praying for him. “She would bring encouragement to me and tell me that people were praying for me.

Over 4,000 people in Sweden microchip embedded in their hand

Over 4,000 people in Sweden microchip embedded in their hand
(DailyMail) More than 4,000 Swedes are being implanted with a microchip that contains details about their identity. The miniature technology bypasses the need for cash, tickets, access cards and even social media. BioHax International is the market leader in the innovate industry and has captured public imagination since it was started five years ago by Jowan Osterlund, a former professional body piercer.

Some people argue the conveniences gained from the procedure by so-called ‘body-hackers’ do not outweigh the risks to their private data. In June 2017, SJ Rail, the Swedish train operator, announced that around 100 people were using microchips to pay for their journey. Commuters with a microchip in their hand are able to have their ticket loaded directly onto the device. The train conductor can then read the chip with a smartphone to confirm the passenger has paid for their journey.

Parents Outraged After Drag Queen Speaks At School Career Day
(CBS Denver) A school district has apologized to parents, after hosting a drag queen as part of a career day. A spokesperson for Adams 12 Five Star schools said Rocky Top Middle School staff should have notified parents a drag queen would be speaking to their children, before allowing the speech to happen.
Students at Rocky Top range from 6th to 8th grade. The drag queen, identified as a woman who goes by “Jessica L’Whor,” is a relative of one student. The district confirmed she was invited to attend career day. “I knew it was going to be controversial because that was nothing that would be allowed when I was in middle school,” L’Whor said. “At the same time, it opened up a door for conversation.”

(Newsweek) A nuclear weapons plant in Texas called in an emergency response team on Monday to deal with an “unexpected event,” reported local outlet KAMR/KCIT. KAMR/KCIT reported that there was no impact off the site—the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas—but that some local roads had been closed amid the unspecified emergency. An unverified Twitter account that appeared to belong to the Pantex Plant
initially called the situation an operational emergency. It tweeted that the Emergency Response Organization, a group of specially trained employees, had been activated. Later the account tweeted that “precautions are being taken due to a security event.” The Pantex Plant assembles, disassembles and maintains nuclear weapons.

Why Witches, Occultists and Satanists Celebrate Halloween and Why You Should Not
Oct 23, 2018 10:00 am
Why Witches, Occultists and Satanists Celebrate Halloween and Why You Should Not
(Charisma News) On Oct. 31, most people will simply ignore the dark side of Halloween. The vast majority of the population will dress up in costumes, go to parties and eat candy without ever even considering where the holiday came from or what certain people are doing behind closed doors. But the truth is that Halloween night is one of the biggest nights of the year for witches, occultists and Satanists. All over America, those who are deep into the dark arts will contact the dead, cast spells and conduct blood sacrifices.
As you will see below, there is a reason why animal shelters across the country ban the adoption of black cats this time of the year. But even our “innocent” Halloween traditions such as dressing up in costumes, “trick or treating” and carving jack-o’-lanterns all have their roots in ancient pagan practices. And every year the costumes for our young girls become even more sexually suggestive, the horror movies become even more demonic, and the public’s fascination with the occult just continues to grow. It truly is a festival of death, but most people don’t seem to care. In fact, experts are telling us that Halloween has now become America’s second-biggest holiday.

Bible Museum says five of its Dead Sea Scrolls are fake

Bible Museum says five of its Dead Sea Scrolls are fake
(CNN) The Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC says five of its most valuable artifacts — once thought to be part of the historic Dead Sea Scrolls — are fake and will not be displayed anymore. German-based scholars tested the fragments and found that five “show characteristics inconsistent with ancient origin and therefore will no longer be displayed at the museum.” CNN raised questions about the museum’s
Dead Sea Scroll fragments in an article published last November, as the Green family prepared to unveil their new, $500 million museum. At 430,000 square feet, and with views of the Capitol, the Bible museum represents a significant investment for its evangelical founders. Now scholars say the Dead Sea forgeries could be part of the most significant sham in biblical archeology since the “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife,” a fiasco that hoodwinked a Harvard scholar and made worldwide news in 2012. Some scholars estimate that as many as 70 forged fragments have hit the market since 2002.

Identical twins, 23, who were born female are now brothers after BOTH coming out as transgender
(Daily Mail) Identical twins who were born female are now brothers after they both came out as transgender at the age of 18. Jack and Jace Grafe, now 23 and originally from Baltimore, Maryland, started life as Jaclyn and Jennifer in June 1995, growing up in a conservative Christian home. But despite being brought up in a happy household, the brothers admit they cried themselves to sleep as children and prayed to wake up
as boys, not understanding what it meant to be transgender. Jack and Jace, who now live in Monroe, Georgia, came out at the age of 18 and are now transitioning as a duo in a rare case. They are both in happy relationships with women. The twins, who share the same DNA, have both grown facial hair since they began taking testosterone in April 2017, and underwent chest surgery in August.

China has cloned 20 different dog breeds will humans be next?
(Daily Star) A 12-year-old schnauzer has become the latest canine to undergo the process, which involves taking a skin sample from the animal. Wang Yinqing, who is the dog’s owner, showed off the puppy to its “father clone” name Doudou in a recently-released snap. However, despite the dogs having the identical DNA, scientists have said they may have a different temperament as this is shaped by its upbringing. According to Chinese news, there have now been 200 different types of dog cloned in the country.
And last month, the world came closer to carrying out mass human cloning. Japanese experts revealed they made human egg cells from blood using a cutting-edge stem cell testing technique. Although these eggs cannot be grown into babies as they are too immature, the research is paving the way for this type of experiment. The team made the egg cells by using blood to create induced pluripotent stem cells, which were then inserted into artificial ovaries.

Here’s How Satan Will Try to Attack Your Identity
Oct 23, 2018 09:17 am
Here’s How Satan Will Try to Attack Your Identity
(Charisma Magazine) You form your identity in one of two ways: you achieve it by yourself or you receive it from God. When you achieve your identity by yourself, there are numerous problems. If you wrap up your identity in your role (mother, wife, husband, father, winner, beauty queen and so forth), when your role changes, you fall into an identity crisis. When the kids move out, the marriage crumbles, you lose your job or age comes to diminish your beauty, you become devastated. You no longer know who you are. When you receive your identity from God, you are able to remain healthy no matter what happens in your life. When you know that you are a loved child of God, you are free to stop living for your identity—
something that is never secure—and start living from your identity, which is eternally secure. Who you think you determines what you do. Because of this, when Satan attacks, he starts by undermining your sense of identity. In the first attack on humans, Adam and Eve were told that if they did something (partake of the forbidden fruit), they would then achieve their identity by becoming “like God.” That, however, was a lie. God had already made them in His likeness. They had already received an identity of being like God but somehow got spiritual amnesia and forgot who they were. They wrongly believed the satanic lie that they could achieve an identity by their own efforts.

In Such a Time as This, Should Pastors Avoid or Address Serious Issues?
Oct 22, 2018 10:45 pm
In Such a Time as This, Should Pastors Avoid or Address Serious Issues?
(Charisma News) “If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point that the world and the devil are at the moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages is where the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the battlefield besides, is merely flight and disgrace if he flinches at this point.” —Martin Luther “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” —Martin Luther King Jr. “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act, is to act.” —Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Recently a thought-provoking article appeared on the internet titled, “The Christian Church in America Has Lost Its Focus and Purpose.” While remaining Gospel-centered, have we drifted off-course?
An Absentee Church? A pastor confessed to me a struggle that resonates with scores of pastors: “How do we hang on to Millennials? They’re leaving in droves.” The reality is many don’t see any real-world-relevance in the church. Issues of today aren’t being addressed (while they sure are by an activist secular media). Because they observe an absentee church, they’re increasingly absentee attendees. New Testament writers didn’t just preach in an expository way but targeted issues Christians faced. The Scriptures were applied in a contemporary, meaningful way.

Mexican news says caravans grow to 14,000 people
(The Washington Times) Members of the illegal immigrant caravan chanted “si se pudo!” as they made their way north through Mexico Monday, having defied the will of one country and vowing to test the spine of another, the U.S., very soon. The chant, which translates roughly as “Yes we could,” is a takeoff on the “Si se puede” — Yes we can! — cheer that immigrant-rights activists have used for years, and which the Obama campaign co-
opted in 2008. Mexican police, who failed to stop them at that country’s border with Guatemala, now serve as escorts for the caravan as it barrels north, its members clear that they have no intention of staying in Mexico, and have eyes only for the U.S. New estimates cited by El Universal, a Mexican newspaper, say the caravan now has 14,000 people, many of them already in Mexico while others still wait One woman quoted by BBC, ..

Trump threatens to build up US nuclear arsenal until Russia, China ‘come to their senses’
(RT News) US President Donald Trump threatened Russia and China that Washington intends to build up its nuclear arsenal until “people come to their senses.” The president said his words were directed towards Moscow and Beijing, as he prepared to unilaterally leave the Intermediate Nuclear Forces in Europe (INF) treaty. The US president implied China should be part of any new nuclear arms control treaty.
“Russia has not adhered to the agreement,” neither in form or in spirit, Trump told reporters outside the White House on Monday, before departing for a campaign rally in Texas. he said, referring to the US nuclear arsenal. “When they do, we will all be smart and we’ll stop. Not only stop, but we’ll reduce, which I’d love to do.” Asked if this should be taken as a threat, Trump said yes.

Why I’m Not Afraid of Witches, Hexes and Curses
Oct 22, 2018 02:18 pm
Why I’m Not Afraid of Witches, Hexes and Curses
(Charisma News) In the early days of our ministry, a well-known witch attended services in the church Sue and I were planting and leading in eastern Canada. Several people came to me concerned about the presence of this witch. They wondered if she was trying to work some spell or sorcery on our fledgling congregation. Several of us met together to pray about the situation. While praying I saw a vision of smoke (representing the devil) and then a wind (representing the Spirit of God) that came along and blew the smoke away.
The smoke had no substance or strength with which to resist the wind. It was suddenly gone. At the very same time, another person saw a similar vision and then a powerful, prophetic word came forth that gave me a new perspective on the devil. God said, “My power is so far surpassing any power possessed by the devil; he is not worthy of the attention you are giving him.”When it comes to spiritual warfare, we must realize that there was a tremendous shift that took place at the cross, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. Satan was not annihilated, but he was stripped of his authority. He is like a five-star general who is court-martialed, stripped of his authority and drummed out of the army.

‘The Message’ Author Eugene Peterson Dies at 85, May Have Spoken in Tongues on His Deathbed
(Charisma News) The prolific author and speaker Eugene Peterson died Monday. He was 85. “During the previous days, it was apparent that he was navigating the thin and sacred space between earth and heaven,” according to his family. “We overheard him speaking to people we can only presume were welcoming him into paradise. There may have even been a time or two when he accessed his Pentecostal roots and spoke in tongues as well. “Among his final words were, ‘Let’s go.’
And his joy: my, oh my; the man remained joyful right up to his blessed end, smiling frequently. In such moments it’s best for all mortal flesh to keep silence. But if you have to say something say this: ‘Holy, Holy, Holy.'” Peterson was placed under hospice care in mid-October “when he took a sudden and dramatic turn in his health caused by an infection,” according to an email from his son Eric Peterson. The elder Peterson already had been dealing with dementia and congestive heart failure at the time.

Filmmakers Outraged as Theatres Drop ‘Gosnell’ Abortion Movie Despite Soaring Box Office Numbers

Filmmakers Outraged as Theatres Drop ‘Gosnell’ Abortion Movie Despite Soaring Box Office Numbers
(FaithWire) The makers behind a movie telling the true story of convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell have revealed that many theatres across the country are canceling showings of their hard-hitting abortion movie despite the huge demand from those wishing to see the film.  “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” has been a huge hit on the big screen, taking a 97% approval rating on Google and grossing over $2 million on just 668 screenings of the film, vastly exceeding box office expectations.
But many theaters keen to stay away from such a sensitive and politically-charged subject have reportedly continued to pull the movie from the big screens. According to Townhall, some 188 theaters have now dropped the film without any clear explanation as to why. Such maltreatment is, however, of no big surprise to the movie’s makers, who faced an arduous battle to release their pro-life project in the first place.

Jordan demands Israel return land leased under 1994 peace treaty
(Express) Jordan’s King Abdullah II announced that Jordan would be withdrawing from part of a peace deal that it made in 1994 in order to reclaim land that Jordan had leased to Israel.  After immense pressure from activists and civil society groups, Jordan said that it would be reclaiming al-Ghumar and al-Baqura after ending its lease agreement with Israel
According to the 1994 peace agreement, Israel was leased 405 hectares of land so that Israeli farmers could use the water-rich farmland for at least 25 years. The King said: “We have informed Israel of an end to the application of the peace treaty annexes regarding al-Baqura and al-Ghumar.”Al-Baqura and al-Ghumar have always been on top of my priorities.

UPDATE: Mysterious ‘polio-like’ illness is likely more widespread than reported
(NY Daily News) A “polio-like” condition that has left children in 22 states paralyzed may be more widespread than previously announced due to inadequate testing protocols and voluntary reporting requirements, experts say. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that there have been 62 confirmed cases of Acute Flaccid Myelitis so far this year.
Since the first known outbreak of AFM in 2014, the devastating illness has reemerged with at least 50 confirmed cases between August and October in even-numbered years. AFM often begins with signs of a respiratory infection but quickly progresses. Within a few hours, patients may have difficulty breathing and develop “flaccid weakness,” and one or more limbs may become paralyzed.

Trump Administration Trying to Define ‘Transgender’ Out of Existence
Oct 22, 2018 09:25 am
Trump Administration Trying to Define ‘Transgender’ Out of Existence
(CBN News) The Trump administration is attempting to do away with the official term of ‘transgender’ by changing the definition of gender to one of a biological condition determined at birth as either male or female. According to a memo obtained by The New York Times, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is leading an effort to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX,
the federal civil rights law that bans discrimination on the basis of sex. Under it, a person’s gender designation could not be changed once it was defined by the genitals a person is born with. Under the Obama administration, the legal concept of gender was loosened through a series of decisions, recognizing gender as an individual choice and not one determined at birth.

Doomsday prediction claims comet will wipe out humanity in 2061

Doomsday prediction claims comet will wipe out humanity in 2061
ATTENTION: The following prediction does not reflect the views of End Time Headlines
(Daily Star) Preachers believe a passage from the book of Revelation suggests Halley’s comet next close approach to Earth will accompany an ever-approaching end of days. The comet – arguably the most famous – is responsible for the annual Orionid Meteor Shower. The space rock last zipped past Earth in 1986 and is expected to whizz past next in 2061. While
stargazers enjoy the dazzling phenomenon, doomsayers will be preparing for the end of the world. Preachers point to a passage in Revelation 8:10, which reads: “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”

Alabama top court judge urges Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade

Alabama top court judge urges Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade
(LifeSite News) Today, the Alabama Supreme Court unanimously ruled in the case of Jessie Phillips v. State of Alabama that “the value of the life of an unborn child is no less than the value of the lives of other persons.”  In a concurring opinion, Justice Parker boldly called on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.  “I urge the Supreme Court of the United States to reconsider the Roe exception and to overrule this constitutional aberration,”
wrote the Alabama Supreme Court judge, and recommended that the Court “return the power to the states to fully protect the most vulnerable among us.” The case came before the Alabama Supreme Court when Jessie Phillips, a man convicted of murdering his wife and their pre-born child, appealed his conviction arguing that he shouldn’t receive the death penalty because his 6-8 week pre-born child should not be considered a person under Alabama law.

Trump says U.S. will pull out of nuke treaty with Russia that limited number of missiles
(USA Today) President Donald Trump said Saturday he would pull out of a Cold-War era treaty with Russia that limited the number of missiles in each country. Trump said Moscow had violated the Intermediate-Range  Nuclear Forces Treaty and he would halt the agreement. “We’re going to terminate the agreement and we’re going to pull out,” Trump said when leaving a rally in Nevada Saturday afternoon. He said the U.S. would pull out “and then we are going to develop the weapons” unless Russia and China agree to a
new deal, though China isn’t currently a party of the agreement. “Russia has violated the agreement. They have been violating it for many years,” the president said. “And we’re not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we’re not allowed to.” Trump made the revelation as his National Security Adviser John Bolton was headed to Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia. His first stop is scheduled in Moscow, where he’ll meet with Russian leaders, including Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev.

Priest Warns China’s “Ultimate Goal Is to Eliminate All Religion”

Priest Warns China’s “Ultimate Goal Is to Eliminate All Religion”
(The Christian Post) A Roman Catholic priest has warned that China’s ultimate goal is to “eliminate all religion,” urging the Vatican to reconsider a major deal with the Communist government. Father Paul of Hebei province, as the priest was identified by International Christian Concern, was responding to discussions about how Chinese Catholics should feel about the deal when he said that the current Chinese regime’s “ultimate
goal is to eliminate all religion.” As evidence, Paul pointed to the revised Regulations on Religious Affairs that were implemented in February, and have seen church closures, congregants being detained, Bibles burned, and students being forced to sign documents renouncing their faith. Other religious minorities, including Muslims, have also faced widespread crackdowns, including detentions at so-called “re-educational” camps.

Man dies and sees God, Given choice to LIVE or DIE
ATTENTION: The following does not reflect the personal views of End Time Headlines
(Express) A man has claimed he spoke to God and got to choose between life and death after a vicious knife attack left him on the edge between life and death – an experience he says shaped his life. The man, who only revealed his name as Michiel W, said he has spoken to God after nearly dying in 1976. Michiel believes he is now on a mission to spread his experience of the afterlife in order to help others deal with their problems. The man shared his incredible story with the Near Death Research Foundation (NDERF) – a group collecting and cataloging so-called Near Death Experience (NDE) accounts. “I believe God wants me to share this experience as it will help others deal with issues in their lives and it is for this reason you have received it. “Use it, as you will. Use my name if it is appropriate.”

Astrophysicist warns China’s SuperCollider could ‘RIP the fabric’ of the Universe

Astrophysicist warns China’s SuperCollider could ‘RIP the fabric’ of the Universe
(Express) China’s super particle collider could RIP the fabric of the universe, according to a shock claim as an astrophysicist warns there is a chance colliders could cause a ‘catastrophe that engulfs space itself’. The east Asian nation is building a particle accelerator which will be seven times as powerful as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland.
With a circumference of 34 miles, it will also be twice as long as the LHC. When CERN began work on the LHC, many feared it could end the universe or create black holes on Earth. Now with China’s plans to build a more powerful particle accelerator, the Circular Electron-Positron Collider (CEPC), the fears have inevitably rose again.

Former Satanist Warns Christians about Celebrating Halloween
(CBN News) Should Christians celebrate Halloween? Opinions differ between Christian leaders, lay people and church members. According to a CBN News Facebook poll, 87% of believers feel that Christians should not celebrate Halloween, while 13% believe it’s okay.  Former Satanist John Ramirez recently joined Charlene Aaron on CBN News’ Prayer Link to talk about Christians and Halloween.
“I was a general to the kingdom of darkness in witchcraft,” Ramirez said. “I would sit with the Devil and talk to him like I’m talking to you today. It was that kind of communication. It was that kind of relationship.” Ramirez warns Halloween isn’t just about costumes and candy – there’s a much darker reality.

Viral Spontaneous ‘God Bless America’ Echoes in Capitol as Witches Try to ‘Hex’ Brett Kavanaugh
(CBN News) There’s a sold-out event being held in Brooklyn, NY Saturday that’s part of an occultic effort to cast spells to hex the newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, to thwart him and cause him pain. Their witchcraft will include the use of effigies, coffin nails, and graveyard dirt in an effort “to make Kavanaugh suffer” organizer Dakota Bracciale told Newsweek. She says those participating will be “basically Antifa witches…
filled with rage that are going to take back our country.” The people planning the event have charged $10 and are giving the proceeds to America’s biggest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, and to a group that supports LBGT youth. On the other side, Christian prophet Lance Wallnau has posted a video that’s gone viral of people singing “God Bless America” inside the US Capitol in the aftermath of Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Insects invading VA, PA could be ‘most destructive’ in 150 years…
(Fox News) An invasive insect species native to China, India and Vietnam is posing a problem in at least two states. The spotted lanternfly is harming crops in Winchester, Virginia, WDVM reported. The Pennsylvania-based Churchville Nature Center said the creatures were also spotted for the first time on its property Thursday. “We are sad to report that we have had our first sighting of the spotted lanternfly on our
property today,” the center announced on Facebook. “If it is new to you, this invasive plant hopper is threatening the forests of the northeast as well as the lumber and agricultural industries. Please keep an eye out for the insect.” The species poses a threat to agriculture and “has the ability to greatly impact the grape, hops and logging industries,” the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture warned.

‘Serpent church’ devotees die from grabbing rattlesnakes and drink deadly poison to prove their faith
(The Sun) This is the nail-biting moment a pastor drinks fatal poison while holding up a deadly rattlesnake with his bare hands – and miraculously survives.  As the deadly strychnine, which can cause muscle spasms, convulsions and asphyxiation, begins to take hold, Pastor Chris Wolford has to sit down on the altar, struggling to breathe and sweating profusely. Chris had mixed a white powder with water to make a clear liquid in the glass jar, before drinking from the supposed “poison”.
But just minutes later the preacher is up on his feet dancing and praising God while swinging the – eerily motionless but still alive – snake through the air. Shockingly Pastor Chris Wolford was just 11 when he watched his dad hemorrhage to death from a snake bite during a service. His brother also died from the same dangerous practices – but he refuses to lose faith in God and the “Signs” religion.

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel masses tanks & APCs on Gaza border

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel masses tanks & APCs on Gaza border
(RT News) Israel has boosted its military presence along the border with Gaza amid top politicians’ calls for a full-scale military campaign like the conflict of 2014, to put an end to the violence and rocket attacks that it links to Hamas. The IDF has stationed around 60 tanks and armored personnel carriers at a deployment area near the Palestinian border, according to Reuters, in what may be the largest military maneuver from Israel since 2014’s Operation Protective Edge. In the latest exchange this week, a rocket from Gaza hit the southern Israeli city of Be’er Sheva,
damaging a house, while another fell into the sea. In a series of retaliatory airstrikes Tuesday night, the IDF killed one Palestinian and injured several more, targeting eight “terrorist locations.” Attempting to justify its rapid military escalation, Israeli officials claimed the rocket that landed in the sea came “dangerously close” to Tel Aviv. Still, Hamas took no responsibility for the rocket strike and promised an investigation. In addition to the military response, Israel closed two border checkpoints and instituted a three-mile limit for Palestinian fishing boats.

Arsonist Throws Molotov Cocktails into Seattle Church During Worship Service
(FaithWire) As a group of about 50 congregants attended a worship service at a Seattle-based church, an arsonist hurled several Molotov cocktails toward the sanctuary. Witnesses told authorities they saw a person throwing lit bottles filled with an unknown substance at Iglesia ni Cristo just after 8 p.m. Thursday and immediately called 9-1-1, according to KCPQ-TV. 
The Molotov cocktails started a fire outside the church, Seattle Fire spokeswoman Kristen Tinsley said, causing minor damage to the exterior of the building. No injuries have been reported. Officials with the Seattle Police Arson and Bomb Squad are investigating the situation to determine a suspect. Some church members reported confronting a group of men outside the sanctuary a few days before the incident.

Hail storm kills 400 kangaroos and 150 goats on properties in far-west New South Wales
(ABC) A flash storm that ripped through parts of drought-ravaged Far West New South Wales has left a trail of death and destruction for two grazier families. Up to 400 kangaroos were found dead on Avondale station near Broken Hill, with the neighboring property left to clean up over $20,000 worth of dead stock. Tegan Langford said what began as joy and elation over the much-needed rain, later turned into
utter disbelief. Tegan and her husband David own Ktank Station, 30 kilometers east of Broken Hill. The Langfords, like many grazing families in the Far West, were desperately waiting for the rain that lashed the region a week ago. They did not know, however, that with the rain came a hail storm that killed more than 400 kangaroos and 150 goats. “We received 18mm of rain at the house, which we were over the moon about, but it wasn’t until a couple of days later that we realized how bad the damage was,” she said.

Pastor Barred From Leading Georgia School Football Team in Prayer After Complaint
(The Christian Post) A Georgia pastor is no longer allowed to lead a public high school football team in prayer after a video of one of his prayers was seen by thousands online. Dawson County Schools has responded to a complaint from one of the nation’s largest atheist legal groups by barring Pastor Russell Davis from leading the Dawson County High School football team in prayer. The decision comes as a video of Davis praying with the Falcons players and coaches was posted to Facebook on Sept. 7
and has been seen over 73,000 times as of Thursday afternoon. In the video, Davis prayed for the players to be able to “unite people together” and to know that God has purpose in their lives.”The Word says when they came out they compelled Him to carry the cross, and then Jesus went to the hill and He won victory on the cross,” Davis says in the video. “Your goal tonight is not to die on the cross. It is not to die on the field of battle. We’re calling you out tonight to carry their cross.” READ MORE

“Christian Witch” Claims Christ Followers Can Practice Witchcraft, Despite Biblical Warnings
(The Christian Post) Despite biblical warnings against the practice of witchcraft, the Rev. Valerie Love, who describes herself as a practicing Christian witch and an ordained minister of spiritual consciousness, is insisting that there is nothing wrong with Christians being witches and has recently launched a school to help Christians tap into magic. “Stop thinking you can tell people how to worship. Stop thinking you can tell people how to connect with the divine. I could tell you how many people have told me,
‘You can’t be a Christian witch’ but here I am. See, you can’t tell me how to worship. You cannot tell me how to connect with the divine. That’s between me and God. You cannot tell me how to pray,” a defiant Love declared in a recent rant on Facebook. She explained that she was “born a witch” but was forced to stifle her identity as a Jehovah’s Witness from age 4 to 30 when she finally left the “cult.””Where do we get off believing that we can actually dictate to other people how they worship. … It’s not our lane,” Love said.

3 Storm-Stopping Weapons God Gives You to Defeat Your Fears

3 Storm-Stopping Weapons God Gives You to Defeat Your Fears
(Charisma Magazine) There is a battle raging. The enemy is not concerned about who you have been, but where you are going. Fear is a liar! I have learned that fear is a learned or perceived aberration (hallucination) that grows into an absolute. Fear is the thief of yesterdays’ dreams. The intimidator of today’s promises. The emasculator of tomorrows warriors. In Matthew 14:28-31 (MSG), Scripture tells us: Peter, suddenly bold, said, “Master, if it’s really you, call me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come ahead.” Jumping out of the boat, Peter walked on the water to Jesus.
But when he looked down at the waves churning beneath his feet, he lost his nerve and started to sink. He cried, “Master, save me!” Jesus didn’t hesitate. He reached down and grabbed his hand. Then he said, “Faint-heart, what got into you?” I have learned that fear is not the absence of courage; in fact, fear is the embryo of courage. Fear is courage waiting to be awakened. Someone reading this today needs to awaken and see your battle in the spirit realm. Satan is at war with your future courage!

Polio-Like Illness leaves CDC and Scientists Baffled

Polio-Like Illness leaves CDC and Scientists Baffled
(Scientific American) A polio-like condition that left more than 100 children in the U.S. at least partially paralyzed in 2014 is back, and not much more is known this time around, officials with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say. The CDC is not ruling out any possible triggers—from infections to toxins, autoimmune reactions to bug bites. “We have not been able to find a cause for the majority of these” cases, Nancy Messonnier,
director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said Wednesday at a news conference. “And I’m frustrated that despite all of our efforts, we have not been able to identify the cause of this mystery illness.” But researchers who have studied the muscle-weakening disease—called acute flaccid myelitis (AFM)—most closely say they now have a good understanding of its primary cause, although they still do not know how to treat the condition or halt its progression.

Scientists aren’t quite certain why. Tornado activity is increasing most in Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa and parts of Ohio and Michigan, according to a study in Wednesday’s journal Climate and Atmospheric Science. There has
been a slight decrease in the Great Plains, with the biggest drop in central and eastern Texas. Even with the decline, Texas still gets the most tornadoes of any state. The shift could be deadly because the area with increasing tornado activity is bigger and home to more people, said study lead author Victor Gensini, a professor of atmospheric sciences at Northern Illinois University. Also, more people live in vulnerable mobile homes and tornadoes are more likely to happen at night in those places, he said.

We Are Seeing a Revival of Old and New Heresies and Strange Doctrines
Oct 19, 2018 09:56 am
We Are Seeing a Revival of Old and New Heresies and Strange Doctrines
(Charisma News) As a student of church history and theology, I am amazed at the present revival and or renewal of old heretical views that were already investigated and condemned by the historic, orthodox, universal church. By heretical, in the context of this article—I am referring to teachings that do not align with the clear teachings and accepted belief of Christian orthodoxy taught in Scripture as affirmed by the Bible-believing, historic, orthodox church. If only pastors would study some of the writings of the early church fathers who dealt with such things such as Arianism
(see Athanasius and the Nicaean Creed) Pelagianism (See Augustine and the Council of Carthage) to name a few; there would be less ignorance of our historical, biblical theological development, and people would be less prone to being led away with error. Saint Jude urges us to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered unto the saints (Jude 3), hence, there is a body of biblical doctrine and or truth the apostles referred to as “the faith” that encompasses basic biblical beliefs Christ followers should adhere to. (The apostle Paul also referred to this body of truth as “the pattern of sound words,” the “deposit” and “sound doctrine” in his epistles—see 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus.)

Meet the Christian Group Working to Turn You Against Israel

Meet the Christian Group Working to Turn You Against Israel
(CBN News) Evangelical Christians are some of Israel’s biggest supporters in the United States. However, there is a movement to turn evangelicals against Israel and it’s coming from other Christians. For the first time in its history, Christ at the Checkpoint (CATC) hosted its bi-annual conference in the United States. The event was created by Palestinian Christian activists in Bethlehem in 2010. This year, Christian leaders from around the world gathered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to condemn Christian
Zionists and fight Israel’s “occupation” of Palestinian land. “From the beginning, the target of CATC has been Christian Zionists. This remains the primary target,” Luke Moon, Deputy Director of the Philos Project, told CBN News.  “That being said, many of the speakers at the conference go out of their way to make a distinction between Jews and Zionists. For them criticizing Zionism is not anti-Semitism, but certainly, for many Jews there is no distinction between being Jewish and being a Zionist.

Televangelist Joel Osteen Refuses To Be Alone With Women Who Aren’t His Wife
Oct 19, 2018 09:43 am
Televangelist Joel Osteen Refuses To Be Alone With Women Who Aren’t His Wife
(Huff Post) Televangelist Joel Osteen told an evangelical Christian website that he follows the so-called “Billy Graham rule” ― suggesting that, in an attempt to protect his marriage, he won’t spend time alone with women other than his wife. In an interview with the Christian Post, Osteen, a bestselling author and pastor of Houston’s 45,000-member Lakewood Church, was asked if he followed the rule, and how else he stayed accountable at a time when
sexual assault scandals have brought down a slew of prominent pastors. “I do and I always have, and my father did too,” Osteen said about the Billy Graham rule. Osteen’s father, John Osteen, was also a writer and televangelist. The elder Osteen founded Lakewood in 1959. “I think it’s important to be honest before God every day and check the reasons why you are doing what you are doing,” Osteen said. “To me, when I stand before God having a pure heart, I can go out and be my best.”

RUMORS OF WAR: US troops increasingly fear that a major war with Russia or China is just around the corner

RUMORS OF WAR: US troops increasingly fear that a major war with Russia or China is just around the corner
(Business Insider) Nearly half of all current military troops believe the United States will be drawn into a major war soon, a jarring rise in anxiety among service members worried about global instability in general and Russia and China in particular, according to a new Military Times poll of active-duty troops. About 46 percent of troops who responded to the anonymous survey of currently serving Military Times readers said they
believe the U.S. will be drawn into a new war within the next year. That’s a jarring increase from only about 5 percent who said the same thing in a similar poll conducted in September 2017. Another 50 percent think the country will not end up in a major conflict during the next year. But that number is falling, down from more than two-thirds of those surveyed last fall who said a war was unlikely.

China’s economy is getting battered – and it will severely affect US stocks

China’s economy is getting battered – and it will severely affect US stocks
(Express) China’s stock market has taken a tumble in recent months after it was hit by US trade tariffs, but what happens to US stocks when the Chinese market gets battered? When the Chinese markets fall, it has repercussions for the US market. The Chinese stock market has been hit badly by US tariffs which came into effect in July, which are making it more costly for companies to operate there,
prompting China’s central bank to pump money into its economy. In turn, China has hit back and imposed tariffs on up to $60 million worth of US goods. But the White House said it would respond to any retaliation from Beijing with more tariffs on Chinese exports, as President Trump is placing pressure on China for what he considers unfair trade practices.

UPDATE: 127 cases of polio-like illness under investigation…
(The Montana Standard) The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has received reports of 127 patients under investigation for acute flaccid myelitis this year. Of these, 62 have been confirmed by the CDC, and the remainder continue to be investigated, said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the agency’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. noting that the confirmed cases are in 22 states.
Acute flaccid myelitis, also called AFM, is a rare but serious condition that affects the nervous system and causes the muscles and reflexes to suddenly become weak, she said Tuesday. Specifically, the disease affects the area of the spinal cord called gray matter. Because the symptoms are similar, AFM is often confused with polio, a crippling and potentially fatal disease that is caused by a virus. The overall rate of AFM is fewer than one in a million, she said.

New ad depicts dying Jesus as organ donor
(WND) The death of Jesus has been portrayed countless times in many famous movies, from “Ben Hur” and “The Gospel of John” to “The Passion of the Christ.” But now, a controversial ad is showing the Son of God agreeing to become an organ donor while He’s being crucified. The spot commences with two
soldiers asking Jesus, who is nailed to the cross, if he thought about becoming an organ donor. “Is this really the best time to bring this up?” Jesus answers. One soldier responds: “We get it. No one wants to talk about death. But you know, not all of us are going to the eternal paradise, and your organs could save the lives of up to six people.” “Obviously I would do it. I am Jesus,” says the Savior.

Kansas Faces Transgender ‘Civil Rights’ Lawsuit for Refusing to Change Sex on Birth Certificates

Kansas Faces Transgender ‘Civil Rights’ Lawsuit for Refusing to Change Sex on Birth Certificates
(The Christian Post) A federal lawsuit filed in Kansas on Monday alleges that the state is violating the rights of trans-identified persons by not allowing them to change the sex on their birth certificates. The Kansas City Star reported that Lambda Legal, an LGBT advocacy group, along with another law firm filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas, on behalf or four individuals who say they’re now the opposite sex and identify as transgender.
Attorneys for the trans-identified persons argue their clients’ rights under the 14th Amendment’s promise of equal protection and due process are being violated by the state’s refusal to issue “updated” birth certificates. “Let me be clear. A transgender woman is a woman. A transgender man is a man — period,” said Omar Gonzalez-Pagan, senior attorney for Lambda Legal, at a news conference announcing the filing. A birth certificate is a “quintessential identity document that follows a person from birth until death” and is therefore “essential,” Gonzalez-Pagan said.

Putin declares Russians ‘will go to heaven’ in event of nuclear war
(Yahoo News) Russians will “go to heaven” as martyrs in the event of nuclear war because Moscow will only ever use nuclear weapons in retaliation, President Vladimir Putin said Thursday. “We have no concept of a preemptive strike,” Putin told a forum of international experts in the southern city of Sochi in response to a question from the audience. “In such a situation, we expect to be struck by nuclear weapons, but we will not use them” first, he said.
“The aggressor will have to understand that retaliation is inevitable, that it will be destroyed and that we, as victims of aggression, as martyrs, will go to heaven. “They will simply die because they won’t even have time to repent,” he said to some laughter from the audience. Putin last year unveiled “invincible” new weapons that would render Western missile defense systems obsolete. In 2016 he called for the country to reinforce its military nuclear potential.

7 Guaranteed Ways to End Boring, Predictable Church Services

7 Guaranteed Ways to End Boring, Predictable Church Services
(Charisma News) An Azusa Street report: .. .disgraceful intermingling of the races … they cry and make howling noises all day and into the night. They run, jump, shake all over, shout to the top of their voice, spin around in circles, fall out on the sawdust blanketed floor jerking, kicking and rolling all over it. Some of them pass out and do not move for hours as though they were dead. These people appear to be mad, mentally deranged or under a spell. They claim to be filled with the spirit. They have a one eyed, illiterate, Negro as their preacher who stays on his knees much of the time with his head hidden between the wooden milk crates.
He doesn’t talk very much but at times he can be heard shouting, “Repent,” and he’s supposed to be running the thing… They repeatedly sing the same song, “The Comforter Has Come.” It’s becoming less common for Christians to jump out of bed on Sunday mornings, excited about heading to church. Of course, many do still love their church experience. The worship environment is powerful, the vision is alive, and the part they play causes them to feel the fire of the Holy Spirit coursing through them. However, sadly, if we were honest, we’d have to admit that many church services are much less powerful
, less anointed and less impacting than we’d like. In fact, a church that looks anything like what was described in the above Azusa Street report can hardly be found. There is a way to fix that. The end result is an atmosphere that’s placed in the Holy Spirit’s control. I’ll tell you this: It’s impossible to be bored when God moves. Impossible. It can’t happen. It’s possible to be provoked, irritated, offended or troubled, but not bored or disconnected. What this means is that, in many churches, God isn’t moving in real power. It may be hard to admit that, but we must if we want to prepare for revival and an outpouring that will make us say, “I can never do church the way I used to again.”

Dollar monopoly slips as China & Japan dump US Treasuries
(RT News) China and Japan – the two main holders of the US Treasury securities – have trimmed their ownership of notes and bonds in August, according to the latest figures from the US Treasury Department, released on Tuesday. China’s holdings of US sovereign debt dropped to $1.165 trillion in August, from $1.171 trillion in July, marking the third consecutive month of declines as the world’s second-largest economy
bolsters its national currency amid trade tensions with the US. China remains the biggest foreign holder of US Treasuries, followed by long-time US ally Japan. Tokyo cut its holdings of US securities to $1.029 trillion in August, the lowest since October 2011. In July, Japan’s holdings were at $1.035 trillion. According to the latest figures from the country’s Ministry of Finance, Japanese investors opted to buy British debt in August, selling US and German bonds. Japan reportedly liquidated a net $5.6 billion worth of debt.

Turkey Cracks Down on More Christians: US Missionary Arrested, Interrogated, Ordered to Leave
(The Christian Post) Just a day after the release of pastor Andrew Brunson in Turkey, authorities arrested another U.S. missionary, interrogating him and ordering him to leave the country. Middle East Concern reported that David Byle, a joint U.S. and Canadian citizen, was arrested in Ankara on Saturday by the Anti-Terror Police Department. He was reportedly interrogated but released on Sunday afternoon, and given 15 days to leave the Islamic-majority country.
“[We] have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support, not only from believers here in Turkey, but from literally all around the world. It means a lot to us and encourages us greatly to know we’re not alone, that we’re a part of such a great family, God’s family,” Byle and his family shared in a message. The missionary has been arrested on multiple occasions in the past in Turkey, all related to his street evangelism. In 2007, he was detained for three days, but since the literature he carried did not insult Islam, he was let go.

12 Christians Arrested in Sudan for Sharing Gospel With Muslims
(The Christian Post) Twelve Christian men were arrested in Sudan on Saturday, for interacting with Muslims and sharing the Gospel.  International Christian Concern reported that the 12 men from Darfur were handcuffed and arrested by officers from the Sudan National Intelligence and Security Services due to their interaction with Muslims in the predominantly Islamic region. “The arrests were done at Nyala market while the young men were interacting with Islam adherents,
building rapport for witnessing, when Sudan’s security authorities surrounded them and led them to the police station, handcuffed,” said ICC’s source, the Rev. Kuwa Shamal. “Some of the arrested men are disciples that I baptized in 2015 when they left Islam and converted to Christianity. The detainees have been doing a recommendable work of sharing the Good News in Darfur, and we pray for their immediate and unconditional release,” Kuwa added.

Andrew Brunson Spent Hours Praying to Keep Sane in Solitary Confinement Inside Turkish Prison
(The Christian Post) Now that he’s back in the United States and free from his two years of detention in Turkey, Pastor Andrew Brunson is opening up about the struggles of his imprisonment and how God was using it for His good. Brunson, a North Carolina native who along with his wife spent over two decades preaching the Gospel in Izmir before being charged with terrorism in 2016, made the rounds with cable news networks this week after he finally landed back on U.S. soil last weekend.
During those interviews, Brunson shed more light on the details of his widely publicized detention that has soured relations between Ankara and Washington. In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Brunson said that he might be one of the “most hated men in Turkey” right now because of the fact that he was falsely accused of not only supporting a terrorist movement blamed for trying to overthrow the Erdogan regime but also supporting Kurdish terrorists.

Are You Believing a Heresy? You Might According to a New Study
(CBN News) “One of the most striking findings is that Americans continue to fail to grasp that God is holy,” Ligonier said in a statement. A whopping 69 percent of Americans disagree with the idea that “Even the smallest sin deserves eternal damnation,” a doctrine clearly outlined in the Bible. It turns out that evangelical Christians also have a hard time believing what the Bible says about man’s sinful nature. This is
demonstrated by the fact that 52 percent of evangelicals agree that everyone sins a little, “but most people are good by nature.” “If we start with the false notion that people are good by nature, we will end with a false gospel,” Ligonier said. The study also found a majority of evangelicals (51 percent) believe that God can be worshiped by people who do not believe in Jesus at all.

Atlanta to Pay $1.2 Million to Former Fire Chief After Firing Him for His Biblical Beliefs

Atlanta to Pay $1.2 Million to Former Fire Chief After Firing Him for His Biblical Beliefs
(CBN News) The City of Atlanta, Georgia has agreed to pay former fire chief Kelvin Cochran, $1.2 million after a Federal District Court ruled in December 2017 that the city’s policies which led to Cochran’s termination were unconstitutional. The city council voted on Monday to pay the former fire chief, recognizing he had been unjustly treated. Cochran is represented by attorneys with the Alliance For Defending Freedom (ADF).
Cochran’s career had been about protecting others.  For 30 years, he did that as a firefighter.  He served as the US Fire Administrator under President Barack Obama and led the City of Atlanta to attain the highest level of fire and rescue preparedness for the first time in its history. But that came to an end in 2015, when the City of Atlanta fired him because he wrote a men’s devotional book in his spare time – a book that briefly mentions his views on a biblical understanding of marriage and sexuality.

(The Christian Post) Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has said that she has “no fear of death” as she begins chemotherapy in her fight against cancer. “My cancer journey continues as I begin chemotherapy this week. My heart aches for the multitude of people who have also dealt with this deadly disease. Yet I am praising God for His keeping power and for your prayers that I know are sustaining me in a constant
state of peace, joy, and expectancy of blessings along the way,” Lotz wrote on her website on Tuesday. “I have been told that my prognosis is excellent. But to be honest, even if it wasn’t, I can truthfully say I have no fear of death. None at all,” she added. “My perspective is the same as the Apostle Paul when he declared, For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21) As my brother-in-law, Dr. Denton Lotz, stated when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the same time I was diagnosed with breast cancer, we are in a win-win situation.”

Ohio May Become First State in US to Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s True Capital
(Charisma News) This past weekend Sar Shalom Center hosted a “Stand with Israel” assembly sponsored by the Richland Community Prayer Network and the Israeli Leadership Institute (ILI). The gathering celebrated the 70th anniversary of the rebirth of Israel and raised funds to support the ILI based in Sderot, Israel. Israeli Leadership Institute Founder & President Mr. Eeki Elner told the two hundred attendees: “I travel extensively throughout the States, and I have never seen anyone like Ohio, more specifically, north-central Ohio, who loves Israel more.”
Recent examples of the strong friendship between the area and the Jewish state include a clergy letter sent by leading clergymen from over one hundred local congregations to Prime Minister Netanyahu supporting Israel’s sovereignty and the acquisition of Israeli bonds by Richland County initiated by the clergy. Additionally, area religious leaders publicly showed strong support of the United States moving its embassy to Jerusalem. Recent local efforts have also led to consideration by the Ohio Legislature to make Ohio the first state to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The death toll from the storm soared Tuesday to 19 in the state, with a dozen victims in hard-hit Bay County, according to authorities. There were no details yet on how the people died, only that the county has tied the 12 deaths to the Category 4 storm, up from four reported deaths on Monday.
It appeared one of the newly reported deaths was a man whose body was discovered by a search dog in the decimated city of Mexico Beach. Cpt. Virgil Watson of the sheriff’s office in Jackson County, along with the border with Alabama, said three people had been killed there. In total, the storm has killed 29 people across four Southern US states, officials said. Officials have said six people died in Virginia, three died in North Carolina and one person was killed in Georgia.

Half Births Happen Outside Marriage, Signaling a Cultural Shift…

Half Births Happen Outside Marriage, Signaling a Cultural Shift…
(Bloomberg) An increasing number of births happen outside of marriage, signaling cultural and economic shifts that are here to stay, according to a new report from the United Nations. Forty percent of all births in the U.S. now occur outside of wedlock, up from 10 percent in 1970, according to an annual report released on Wednesday by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the largest international provider of sexual and reproductive health services. That number is even higher in the European Union, where 60 percent of births occur outside of marriage.
The EU likely sees more births out of wedlock because many member countries have welfare systems that support gender-balanced child care, said Michael Hermann, UNFPA’s senior adviser on economics and demography, in an interview. Public healthcare systems, paid paternal leave, early education programs and tax incentives give unwed parents support beyond what a partner can provide. The data show such births in the U.S. and EU are predominantly to unmarried couples living together rather than to single mothers, the report says.

WAR DRUMS: Gaza rocket hits Israeli city, prompting Israeli air strikes in retaliation
(CNN) A rocket fired from Gaza struck a home in the city of Beer Sheva in southern Israel early Wednesday, according to the Israeli military and Israel police. Footage from Israel Channel 10 showed damage to the fence and yard of the home. No injuries were reported. A second rocket landed off the coast of central Israel, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said. Israel’s air force
began striking targets in Gaza a few hours after the rocket launch, according to a statement from the Israeli military. Israel struck nearly two dozen Hamas military targets throughout Gaza, Conricus added.
The targets include a tunnel, two digging sites, a weapons manufacturing site, a naval tunnel, and more. In addition, the IDF identified an attempted rocket launch in northern Gaza and struck the launcher before the rocket was fired.

‘There is NO GOD’ according to Stephen Hawking’s final revelation before dying
Oct 16, 2018 09:28 pm
‘There is NO GOD’ according to Stephen Hawking’s final revelation before dying
(Express) There is no God, according to the late physicist Stephen Hawking’s final damning assessment of the afterlife. The famous theoretical physicist died in March this year at the age of 76 but left behind some truly astonishing predictions in his final book which has just been released. One of his bold predictions in his book titled Brief Answers To The Big Questions was that God does not exist. He described his claim there is no afterlife or higher power as a “profound realization”. Professor Hawking wrote in the
newly-published book: “We are free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is that there is no God. “No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. “This leads me to a profound realization: there is probably no heaven and afterlife either. “I think belief in the afterlife is just wishful thinking. “There is no reliable evidence for it, and it flies in the face of everything we know in science. I think that when we die we return to dust. READ MORE https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1032238/stephen-hawking-no-god-afterlife-life-after-death-stephen-hawking-book



New Study Reveals Most Evangelicals Believe God Accepts Worship of ALL Religions
Oct 16, 2018 05:27 pm
New Study Reveals Most Evangelicals Believe God Accepts Worship of ALL Religions
(The Christian Post) A majority of evangelicals now believe that God accepts the worship of all religions, according to a new study released by Ligonier Ministries that shows many have also grown confused about some core doctrines of the Christian faith. Chris Larson, president of Ligonier Ministries, says the results of the 2018 State of Theology survey conducted by LifeWay Research and released Tuesday shows an urgent need for bold teaching of historic Christianity.
“The State of Theology survey highlights the urgent need for a courageous ministry that faithfully teaches the historic Christian faith. It’s never been popular to talk about mankind’s sinfulness or the exclusive claims of Jesus Christ, but at a time when a darkened world needs the light of the Gospel, it’s disheartening to see many within the evangelical church confused about what the Bible teaches. We hope this survey provides local churches with a little more insight into what people in our neighborhoods and in our pews actually believe,” Larson said in a statement.

Jesus Revival May Lead to US Christians Being Raptured, Removing America From End Times

Jesus Revival May Lead to US Christians Being Raptured, Removing America From End Times
(The Christian Post) Evangelist Greg Laurie has suggested that a massive Jesus revival in America could lead to Christians being snatched from Earth, removing the U.S. from the End Times conflict. Speaking with PureFlix on Sunday in a Facebook video, Laurie, who pastors Harvest Christian Fellowship in California, recalled that one of the earmarks of the Jesus movement of the 1960s and 1970s was that people believed Jesus was coming soon.
The pastor insisted that the Christians of that time were not wrong to believe that, noting that “we’ve never been closer to the return of Jesus than right now.” He said that looking at Bible prophecy, he doesn’t see anything specific that needs to happen before Christ returns to remove believers from the Earth, which is sometimes called the rapture of the Church.

Followers Of Texas ‘Prophet’ Joshua Holmes Claim He is ‘Jesus in the Flesh,’
(The Christian Post) If you don’t know self-styled Texas prophet Joshua Holmes of Joshua Holmes Ministries, you don’t know Jesus because he is “Jesus in the flesh,” according to some who follow him. “For all you haters if you don’t know Prophet Joshua Holmes you ain’t got the Holy Spirit. That’s all I gotta say,” a young woman says in a viral video posted on Facebook dismissing critics of Holmes. “He is changing lives every day. He is Jesus in the flesh. He is very tangible. He’s got the power of God on him.”
The flamboyant young minister, whom many critics dismiss as a dangerous departure from orthodox Christianity, has emerged in recent months as an online sensation professing healings and “money miracles.” In a 1-minute video promotion for his ministry that has been viewed more than 3 million times on Facebook, Holmes is recorded making women and men swoon with a wave of his jacket or a mere breath from his mouth.

Woman dies and claims she saw Heaven and Angels
(Express) A Woman who temporarily died believes she went to heaven and spoke with angels in an astonishing account of the afterlife. The person, who gave her name only as Sylvie, said she believes she saw heaven in a period where “time stopped or lost all meaning.” Sylvie said she also she felt like she was part of something massive during her near-death experience (NDE). Sylvie wrote for NDE website NDERF: “I had the feeling like I was a part of the universe,
like a cell connected to the other cells in the big bath of the universe.” She wanted to stay in this place, but “angels” told her that it was not her time. Sylvie wrote: “Then I found myself in a luminous and soft place. White figures talked gently to me, and they told me a lot of things about myself. I didn’t remember anything afterward. “The thing I remember is that I wanted to stay and that they told me that it was not the moment. To help me decide, they showed me the interior of the ambulance.

State Tells Christian Filmmakers: Make Same-Sex Marriage Films or Spend 90 Days in Jail
(CBN News) Two Christian filmmakers will appear before the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul Tuesday to challenge Minnesota state law which they say illegally forces them to produce and create films expressing messages that contradict their core beliefs.  Telescope Media Group owners Carl and Angel Larsen have already been threatened with hefty fines and up to 90 days in jail if they choose to disregard the law. The
couple is being represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).The Larsens want to enter the wedding industry. However, the state’s Human Rights Act stipulates if the couple creates films celebrating their Christian beliefs about marriage – that marriage is between one man and one woman, they must also create films about marriage that violate their beliefs, including films promoting same-sex marriages.

Top scientist claims humans are on brink of “IMMORTALITY”

Top scientist claims humans are on brink of “IMMORTALITY”
(Daily Star) Dr Ian Pearson has previously said people will have the ability to “not die” by 2050 – just over 30 years from now. Two of the methods he said humans might use were “body part renewal” and linking bodies with machines so that people are living their lives through an android. But after Dr Pearson’s predictions, immortality may now be a step nearer following the launch of a new start-up. Human is hoping to make the immortality dream a reality with an ambitious plan.
Josh Bocanegra, the CEO of the company, said he is hoping to use Artificial Intelligence technology to create its own human being in the next three decades. He said: “We’re using artificial intelligence and nanotechnology to store data of conversational styles, behavioral patterns, thought processes and information about how your body functions from the inside-out. “This data will be coded into multiple sensor technologies, which will be built into an artificial body with the brain of a deceased human.

“Polio-Like” illness continues to spread across America
(CNN) This year, more than half of all US states have had confirmed or possible cases of acute flaccid myelitis, the polio-like illness that can cause paralysis and mostly affects children, according to a new CNN analysis. CNN reached out to health departments in every state; 48 states responded, plus the District of Columbia.
Of those, 30 states said they had cases that were confirmed, suspected or being investigated — including 15 states that said they had confirmed cases in 2018. In total, CNN found 47 confirmed cases and 49 more that were suspected or being investigated, for a total of 96. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which releases only confirmed numbers, says 16 states had 38 cases as of September 30. It does not identify the states.

Atheist Group Sues IRS for Exempting Churches From Requirement to File Annual Information Form

Atheist Group Sues IRS for Exempting Churches From Requirement to File Annual Information Form
(Christian News Network) One of the nation’s most conspicuous professing atheist groups has filed a lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after its charity Nonbelief Relief lost its tax-exempt status for not filing form 990 for three consecutive years. The organization contends that the government wrongly shows preferential treatment to churches in automatically exempting them from the requirement, but punishing other non-profits by enforcing the mandate to file the annual informational form. “The information return
exemption given to churches and other religious organizations constitutes discrimination on the basis of religion in violation of the Establishment Clause,” reads the lawsuit filed by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). “[T]he revocation of plaintiff’s tax-exempt status violated the Establishment Clause, as well as the Equal Protection rights of the plaintiff.” FFRF founded its non-profit organization Nonbelief Relief in 2015 to provide financial donations to various charitable groups and “individuals targeted for nonbelief, secular activism, or blasphemy.”

New Quebec Administration Wants to Ban Employees from Wearing Religious Symbols

New Quebec Administration Wants to Ban Employees from Wearing Religious Symbols
(CBN News) Quebec, Canada’s new administration wants to stop its employees from wearing religious symbols on their clothing while at work. The Coalition Avenir Quebec platform also specifically points out that all judges, prosecutors, police officers, and teachers are included. “Religious signs will be prohibited for all persons in a position of authority, including teachers,” according to The College Fix website. Those employees who don’t comply with the new rule would lose their jobs. François Legault, Quebec’s new
premier, says it’s merely so the government can remain neutral in certain situations. “I think if we compare to what’s happening in many countries, it’s reasonable for neutrality reasons—we want to make sure that a policeman or a policewoman doesn’t show a religious sign in case the man or woman in front of him is from another religion,” Legault is quoted as saying on the Reason website’s Hit & Run blog.

Middle East Christians Risking All

Middle East Christians Risking All
(The Christian Post) Christians are continuing to share the Gospel even in highly dangerous areas in the Middle East where the Islamic State terror group remains on the minds of the people. William, a Christian ministry worker who for years has been serving various countries in Central Asia and the Middle East, said in a webinar with persecution watchdog group Open Doors USA last week that even though IS fighters have been defeated throughout Iraq and Syria, dangers remain.
“They (Christians) are telling us that ISIS has been defeated, but ISIS is still in the minds of the people,” he said of Mosul, where thousands of Christians were forced to flee four years ago when IS captured the areas. “You have the Muslim villages around the Christian area, where some of the Muslims don’t want the Christians to come back, and they are very vocal about it,” he added.

This Is One of the Most Dangerous Emotions You Could Entertain
Oct 15, 2018 09:55 pm
This Is One of the Most Dangerous Emotions You Could Entertain
(Charisma Magazine) When I was a little girl, my parents bought Bible storybooks for my sister and me. I can vividly remember the depiction of Jesus in the boat on the Sea of Galilee as the storm arose and threatened the lives of all aboard. When the disciples woke Him, Jesus stood up in the boat and with only a word calmed the wind and the waves. Then He looked at His disciples and said, “Why were you afraid? Why were you afraid when I was with you?” (See Mark 4:36-41).
Indeed, why are we afraid when He is with us? In the Bible we are told “fear not” or “be not afraid” nearly 100 times. God must have known fear would be a problem for us. He knows we are human beings, and fear is one of those emotions that seems to arise unbidden. It feels out of our control, but if God asks us not to be afraid, He must also know that getting there is something we can accomplish. Fear is frequently a bedrock emotion underlying worry and anxiety. You can’t fight fear simply by trying harder to not be afraid. The space that emotion occupies in your soul needs to be refilled with something stronger, something deeper, something more encompassing. And we’ll find that in God’s Word.

Switzerland Votes to Criminalize Homophobia and ‘Hate Speech’

Switzerland Votes to Criminalize Homophobia and ‘Hate Speech’
(CBN News) Switzerland has voted to make it illegal to be homophobic or discriminate against anyone in the LGBTQ community. The National Council, which is the lower house in Switzerland’s legislature, voted 118 – 60 in favor of a law that says anyone guilty of homophobia will face heavy fines or up to three years in prison. “I tabled the motion after speaking to friends of mine who have personally been victims of verbal and physical homophobic violence,” Mathias Reynard, a member of the Swiss Socialist Party told ShortList.
Reynard spearheaded the new law and called it a “great success for human rights.” “Homophobia is not an opinion. It’s a crime. One in five homosexuals attempted suicide, half before the age of 20. This victory sends a strong signal. I have already received hundreds of reactions.” The law criminalizes “physical violence” and “verbal violence” against LGBT people. Reynard never makes clear what “verbal violence” actually means, but says it’s a crime punishable by law.

Government tears down church cross; Worship attack wave fears…
(Express) Police have torn down a cross in a Catholic church, in a blatant act of Christian persecution which has sparked a wave of outrage. The incident in China saw authorities rip down the cross, the latest in a string of examples of the Beijing tightening its grip on religious expression. The cross standing on the bell tower of Lingkun Catholic church was torn down by authorities in Wenzhou city, a port and industrial city in the Zhejiang province, on October 11.

Cyberattack on utilities would cripple America
(The Washington Post) Foreign states are breaching the security perimeters of America’s public utilities. In Connecticut, utilities have reported days in which they detected and deterred more than a million probes to their operating systems, many from foreign actors. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Oct. 2 referred to Russia-linked hacking as an effort to “prep the battlefield” for an attack. Meanwhile, Karen Evans, the assistant secretary for cybersecurity, energy security and emergency response at the Energy Department, testified Sept. 27 that our energy infrastructure has become a
primary target for hostile cyber-actors. She warned that, “energy cybersecurity and resilience has emerged as one of the Nation’s most important security challenges,” and added in response to a committee question that she is not confident our utilities are prepared to withstand such attacks, particularly from potent actors such as Russia and North Korea. Evans is right: The potential damage from an attack on our critical infrastructure would be harrowing. It’s time we come up with a strategy to defend our nation from potentially crippling cyber attacks that would put states at the forefront of the fight.

Biological Male Wins Women’s Cycling World Championship as Trans Woman
(FaithWire) A biological man who identifies as a transgender woman won a women’s world championship cycling event over the weekend, prompting a mixed response of congratulations and criticism.  Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, was victorious in the women’s sprint for ages 35-39 at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships held in Los Angeles. McKinnon, who was
born a male, took to Twitter to celebrate her much-heralded victory. McKinnon, who calls herself “an internationally recognized expert on the science and ethics of transgender inclusion in sport,” told USA Today that American society should not “have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports.”

3 Major Cracks That Could Tear Today’s Church Apart

3 Major Cracks That Could Tear Today’s Church Apart
(Charisma News) We’ve all had it happen before—and sometimes it just smacks us right in the face. Out of nowhere, we suddenly discover that God is leading us to take a spiritual inventory of our life, family and church. “Be diligent to know the state of your flocks, and look well to your herd (Prov. 27:23). Lately, I’ve been told one scenario after the next where godly people are getting thrown off-guard with some of the most bizarre situations. It’s obvious that there is a major shift happening across denominational and fellowship boundaries; rifts and spiritual battles are taking place in congregations at an alarming rate. As leaders, we must look to see if there are any “spiritual cracks” within our congregations. Let’s take a look at the three biggest potential cracks:
Division (def.): A disagreement between two or more groups, typically producing tension or hostility. There’s been so much talk lately concerning the disunity in our country. Indeed it is there! But how did it get there? Did we just wake up one day and it appeared? No! Division is like a slow, slithering snake; something that has been right near you for a long time, resting, nesting and feeding on its innocent victims one tiny meal at a time. But before long, it isn’t a small snake anymore; rather, it is a monster living right in your basement, shed, garage or, even worse, it’s now made its way within the personal confinements of your home. It’s not there to play games—it’s there to kill you, because that is a snake’s nature. This is the nature of division.

What’s Next on God’s Prophetic Calendar?
Oct 15, 2018 09:45 am
What’s Next on God’s Prophetic Calendar?
(Charisma News) Katrina and Sandy … Harvey and Irma. These are familiar names of devastating hurricanes that hit the United States in the last decade. ‘Tis the “hurricane season” and as you might suspect, this season of flooding is nothing new to the Lord. In fact, it was established long ago on God’s calendar. Yes, Cheshvan is the month of Noah’s great flood, but also the eighth month of “new beginnings.” Eight is the number of new beginnings, so let’s uncover Cheshvan and see how we can emerge from its waters stronger than ever!
If you have been tracking along with His calendar, you will recall we just completed Tishrei, which means “beginning.” Two back-to-back months about beginnings? Is this a typo? No, not at all! In order for us to go back to the “beginning,” we have to have a new beginning. If we want to go back to Eden where there was peace with God, we have to have a new beginning. Jesus even says this in the Gospels; we must be born again. This new birth happens when we repent of our sins and receive God’s forgiveness. If you have never experienced this new birth through confessing your sins, today is the day of salvation and is the perfect time to become a new creation in Christ (John 3:3-8, 2 Cor 5:17-21, 1 John 1:1-10).

Hurricanes are rapidly exploding in strength and here’s why

Hurricanes are rapidly exploding in strength and here’s why
(The Washington Post) The unforgettable thing about record-setting Hurricane Michael will always be how rapidly it became a near-Category 5 storm, perfectly timed for a sneak attack on the Florida Panhandle. On Tuesday morning, Floridians knew a storm was coming but not how strong it would be. As of 5 a.m., Michael was a strong Category 1 hurricane with a minimum pressure of 973 millibars, a measure of atmospheric
pressure indicating that air is rising in the storm, pulling winds toward its center. The official forecast took the storm up to mid-Category 3 at landfall. But 24 hours later, Michael was already far stronger: It now had 140 mph winds and a pressure falling sharply. The wind speed increased 45 mph in just 24 hours, representing a leap from Category 1 to Category 4 — and the storm wasn’t done intensifying.

Magnitude 5.5 earthquake shakes Northern Alaska
(Express) Kotzebue or Kikiktagruk is a city in the Northwest Arctic Borough in the US state of Alaska. It is the borough’s seat, by far its largest community and the economic and transportation hub of the subregion of Alaska encompassing the borough. According to the United States Geological Survey, (USGS) nearby places that could be affected by the tremors are Ishiuk, Alaska, College,

Alaska, Fairbanks, Alaska, Badger, Alaska, Anadyr, Chukotka, Russia. The USGS reviewed the quake and put it at a magnitude 5.3, which means slight damage may be caused to buildings and other structures. There is little or no area affected or population exposed to landslides, the USGS said. There is also little risk of liquefaction with little or no population exposed. Liquefaction is when the soil loses its strength in response to the ground shaking.

Pastor Andrew Brunson, Wife Pray for Trump to Have ‘Supernatural Wisdom,’ ‘Fear of the Lord’

Pastor Andrew Brunson, Wife Pray for Trump to Have ‘Supernatural Wisdom,’ ‘Fear of the Lord’
(The Christian Post) Andrew Brunson and his wife prayed for President Trump at the White House Saturday after the pastor was freed from Turkey where he was held captive for over two years. Brunson told Trump that he and his family “pray for him often” and said he’d like to pray for him in the Oval Office and asked if that would be OK. The president replied, “Well, I need it probably more than anyone else in this room, so that would be very nice, thank you.”

In his prayer, Brunson said: “Lord God, I ask that you pour out your Holy Spirit on President Trump. That you give him supernatural wisdom to accomplish all the plans you have for this country and for him. I ask that you give him wisdom on how to lead this country into righteousness. I ask that you give him perseverance and endurance and courage to stand for truth. I ask that you protect him from slander from enemies, from those who would undermine.

Christian Man Faces Trial in Algeria Because His Muslim Wife Accused Him of Evangelizing Her

Christian Man Faces Trial in Algeria Because His Muslim Wife Accused Him of Evangelizing Her
(FaithWire) Two men are facing trial in Algeria after one of their wives, a Muslim, accused them of trying to convert her to Christianity. Rachid Ouali and his 67-year-old friend, Ali Larchi, were summoned before a judge in the town of Bouir after Ouali’s wife alleged that the pair brought her to church and urged her to leave the Islamic faith. The two men have denied the accusations, and Ouali’s wife allegedly later told her husband that she had made the complaint while under pressure from her Muslim relatives.
According to her complaint, Ouali’s wife was at lunch with the two men when they started sharing their testimonies of Christ’s goodness and faithfulness in their own lives. She recalled that the pair mentioned Jesus several times and exclaimed “Hallelujah” to each other, as reported by Morning Star News. Hearing their conversation, the woman jumped up and shouted, “You have brought me here to convert me and to deny my religion. You laid a trap for me,” according to Ouali.

RUMORS OF WAR: Netanyahu threatens ‘very painful blows’ against Hamas…
(Yahoo News) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday threatened “very painful blows” against Gaza’s Hamas rulers if they don’t halt protests along the perimeter fence that have led to clashes with Israeli troops. Netanyahu said Israel is very close to waging a “different kind of activity” against the Islamic militants.
He said “if it has any sense, Hamas will cease its fire and violent outbursts — now.” Hamas has orchestrated near-weekly protests along the Israel-Gaza boundary since March, pressing for an end to a decade-long Israel-Egyptian blockade of the isolated territory. The protests have intensified in recent weeks as attempts to reach a truce with Israel, including an easing of the blockade, have faltered.

Disasters become big chunk of U.S. deficit…
(The Hill) As Congress moves to prepare another emergency funding bill to help people hit by Hurricane Michael, budget watchers are crying foul. The level of funding needed to cover disasters each year, they say, is largely predictable, but Congress only includes a fraction of that funding in its annual appropriations. The rest of the money provided nearly every year to pay for the nation’s natural disasters just adds to the

deficit, regardless of what promises or commitments the government has made to keep its spending down. “Disasters aren’t anomalies — they are unfortunately a sure thing, and they are getting more costly every year,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. She says funding to pay for the disasters should be part of a regular budget process, or the nation will unsustainably add to its debt.

How to Check What Facebook Hackers Accessed in Your Account

How to Check What Facebook Hackers Accessed in Your Account
(CBN News) Could hackers have been able to see the last person you cyberstalked or that party photo you were tagged in? According to Facebook, the unfortunate answer is “yes.” On Friday, the social network said fewer users were affected in a security breach it disclosed two weeks ago than originally estimated — nearly 30 million, down from 50 million. In additional good news, the company said hackers weren’t able to access more sensitive information like your password or financial information. And third-party apps weren’t
affected. Still, for users already uneasy about the privacy and security of their Facebook accounts after a year of tumult, the details that hackers did gain access to — gender, relationship status, hometown and other info — might be even more unsettling. Facebook has been quick to let users check exactly what was accessed. But beyond learning what information the attackers accessed, there’s relatively little that users can do — beyond, that is, watching out for suspicious emails or texts.

Canadian Hospital Unveils Assisted Suicide Plans for Kids, Parents Won’t Know Until Child Is Dead
(The Christian Post) Doctors from a Toronto children’s hospital recently published policies on physician-assisted suicide for children, revealing that in some cases, parents won’t be notified until after the child has died.   “Usually, the family is intimately involved in this (end-of-life) decision-making process. If, however, a capable patient explicitly indicates that they do not want their family members involved in their decision-making, although health care providers may encourage the patient to reconsider and involve their family,
ultimately the wishes of capable patients with respect to confidentiality must be respected,” said pediatric doctors at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, administrators and ethicists in a Sept. 21 paper published in the British Medical Journal’s J Medical Ethics.  “The article appears just three months before the Canadian Council of Academies is due to report to Parliament on the medical consensus about extending voluntary euthanasia ..

Virginia Couple Threatened With Eviction for Holding Bible Study File Complaint With HUD

Virginia Couple Threatened With Eviction for Holding Bible Study File Complaint With HUD
(The Christian Post) An elderly couple facing a possible eviction from a Virginia-based retirement community for hosting a Bible study has taken their fight to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In July, the Community Realty Company sent a notice to Kenneth and Liv Hauge, who live at the Evergreens at Smith Run in Fredericksburg, informing them that they must either stop holding Bible study or be evicted.
First Liberty Institute, a conservative law firm representing the Hauges, filed a complaint with HUD on Tuesday, arguing that “CRC and Evergreens’ actions violate the Fair Housing Act and its accompanying regulations.” “The totality of CRC and Evergreens’ treatment of the Hauges, the notice, and the policy manifest both discriminatory intent and discriminatory impact relating to the Hauges’ continued rental of a dwelling and access to the common facilities related to it, thus violating the FHA’s prohibitions against religious discrimination in housing,” read the complaint.

US Withdraws From Another UN Committee Over Blatant Anti-Israel Bias
(FaithWire) The Trump administration is just months away from withdrawing from the United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as the committee continues to advance anti-Israel policies. Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said the final straw came in July 2017, when the UNESCO approved a resolution to designate Hebron in the West Bank, home to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, where Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah,
Rebecca and Leah are buried, a Palestinian World Heritage site. At the time, Haley called the highly politicized body a “chronic embarrassment,” according to The Washington Post, adding, “Just as we said in 1984, when President Reagan withdrew from UNESCO, U.S. taxpayers should no longer be on the hook to pay for policies that are hostile toward our values and make a mockery of justice and common sense.”

Guatemala volcano spews ash months after deadly eruption

Guatemala volcano spews ash months after deadly eruption
(Yahoo News) Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire spewed ash and lava Saturday just months after an eruption killed at least 110 people. The country’s seismology and volcanology institute said hot lava was spilling from the crater and flowing toward a ravine. Constant rumblings from the volcano sounded like an engine, and columns
of gray ash billowed 4,600 meters (15,091 feet) into the air. Authorities urged nearby residents to evacuate and be alert for possible lahars – flows of mud, debris, water and pyroclastic material – that could be fed by afternoon rains. The Volcano of Fire is one of the most active in Central America.

Europe’s most active volcano is sliding into the sea

Europe’s most active volcano is sliding into the sea
(National Geographic) Perched on the northeastern edge of Sicily, Italy’s Mount Etna is a hyperactive volcano capable of producing incandescent lava flows as well as explosive, lightning-surrounded pyrotechnics. It’s also sliding into the Ionian Sea—and a new study provides fresh evidence as to why. It’s been known for some time that the so-called Roof of the Mediterranean has been on the move. Etna is not slipping quickly; on average, its migration is happening at a rate several times slower than the growth rate of your fingernails.

But geologists have been hunting for the exact cause of the volcano’s motion, since it’s linked to the risk that the fiery mountain may suffer a catastrophic collapse. About a million people live on Etna’s slopes, and millions more reside on the coastlines across the Ionian sea. If part of the volcano near the shoreline becomes unstable and falls into the water, it could create mega-tsunamis that would devastate the shores of the eastern Mediterranean.

Emergency responder calls earthquake and tsunami aftermath in Indonesia ‘one of the worst’ he’s ever seen

Emergency responder calls earthquake and tsunami aftermath in Indonesia ‘one of the worst’ he’s ever seen
(AccuWeather) Following the devastating 7.5 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami that rattled Indonesia in late September, the death toll has exceeded 2,000. Search and rescue efforts came to an official end this week, despite aid organizations citing the need for ongoing support, particularly in Palu, a small Sulawesi Island city rocked hardest by the quake. Five thousand people remain missing, potentially buried under
the mountain of rubble, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency estimates. The decision to end search and rescue efforts was followed by an order from the Indonesian government for international aid groups to pull out of the region and return to their home countries. The move was criticized by many, with United Nations figures suggesting around 200,000 people still need humanitarian support.

DEVELOPING: Portugal Is Facing the Region’s Strongest Atlantic Storm Since 1842

DEVELOPING: Portugal Is Facing the Region’s Strongest Atlantic Storm Since 1842
(Bloomberg) After a three-week journey around the Atlantic Ocean, Leslie was on track to make landfall at Portugal’s coast late Saturday with hurricane-force winds — only the third time in 176 years that a storm this powerful has made it to the Iberian Peninsula. Storm warnings cover Portugal, according to the Portuguese Institute for Sea and Atmosphere. Leslie’s sustained winds fell to 75 miles an hour, the minimum to qualify as a hurricane,
at midday Saturday as it raced toward the coast at more than 30 mph. The storm was about 315 kilometers (195 miles) west-southwest of Lisbon at 4 p.m. local time. Leslie is forecast to be a powerful post-tropical cyclone by the time it reaches the Iberian peninsula. After landfall, rapid weakening is anticipated, and Leslie is forecast to degenerate into a broad low-pressure area over Spain in a day or so. The storm could cause $4 billion to $5 billion in economic impacts as it crosses the peninsula, according to Chuck Watson, a disaster modeler with Enki Research.

Flea-borne typhus continues to spread …
(Los Angeles Times) A week after announcing an outbreak of flea-borne typhus in downtown Los Angeles, health officials on Friday declared another outbreak of the illness — this time in Willowbrook. Four people have been diagnosed with typhus in the unincorporated community near South Los Angeles, three of whom were hospitalized, according to health officials. Typhus outbreaks are often associated with poor hygiene and overcrowding.
More people have been falling sick with typhus in Los Angeles County over the last decade, though experts are unsure why. The latest cases bring the county total to at least 83 this year. There were five in all of 2008, according to the California Department of Public Health. “We expect to continue to see clusters of flea-borne typhus throughout L.A. County,” health officials wrote in an alert to doctors on Friday.

Hurricane Michael leaves friends, relatives searching for thousands of people…
(Miami Herald) On Day 2 after Hurricane Michael made landfall, search and rescue was still underway, state emergency officials said Friday — as more emphasis was beginning to shift to the “search.” Thousands of people had been informally reported missing to local authorities, the Red Cross and the state, as people looked for their friends and relatives. The Florida Panhandle is largely populated by small towns, spread out across dense, forested areas, which only worsened post-disaster communications problems when cellphone
towers and internet services went out. Locating people was a top priority for emergency crews on Friday. Officials said they similarly received inquiries about thousands of people who were missing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Irma last year as crews fanned out across the Keys to reduce that number. However, Alan Harris, Seminole County Emergency Management Director, told the state Emergency Operations Center during its 8:30 a.m. briefing that so far,

Over 17 Inches of Snow Fell in North Dakota and It’s Only October

Over 17 Inches of Snow Fell in North Dakota and It’s Only October
(The Weather Channel) Over 17 inches of snow fell in parts of eastern North Dakota – the area’s first significant snowfall of the season – when snowstorm swept through the area this week.  The Grand Forks Air Force Base recorded a whopping 17.4 inches overnight Wednesday into Thursday with snow drifts piling up to 33 inches high, according to the National Weather Service’s Grand Forks office.
“It’s kind of unbelievable that this happened in October,” Andrew Moore, an NWS-Grand Forks meteorologist, told the Grand Forks Herald. Some 15 miles east of the base, the NWS office in Grand Forks recorded 6.1 inches of snow, 5.7 of which fell on Wednesday alone, nearly doubling their daily record snowfall amount. The previous record was when 3 inches fell in 1921.
