New Survey Says Adults Who Rarely or Never Attend Church More Likely to Cheat on Spouse

New Survey Says Adults Who Rarely or Never Attend Church More Likely to Cheat on Spouse
Adults who didn’t grow up in intact families and those who rarely or never attend religious services are more likely than others to have cheated on their spouse, according to a new study. The study, “Who Cheats More? The Demographics of Infidelity in America,” found that the rate of infidelity among those who attend a worship service at least once a week or several times a month or a year is 14 percent, as opposed to 19 percent among those who attend a religious service once a year or less.
A person’s political identity and family background are also related to whether or not they cheat, said the study released last week by Wendy Wang, director of research at the Institute for Family Studies. Fifteen percent of adults who grew up with both biological parents have cheated on their spouse before, compared with 18 percent of those who didn’t grow up in intact families, pointed out the study.

California Man Who Says He Was ‘Blind’ Without Christ Turns Himself in for Murder Committed 25 Years Ago

California Man Who Says He Was ‘Blind’ Without Christ Turns Himself in for Murder Committed 25 Years Ago
A California man walked into a local television station this week and also turned himself in to the police in confessing to a murder committed 25 years ago, as he said that his faith in God and the weight of living with the secret compelled him to do what was right. “God and Christ and these things that have happened over the course of 25 years have pushed me and pushed me to do the right thing,” Brian Hawkins, 44, told local television station KRCR.
“I know the wrong can’t be changed, but this is the closest I can come to doing the right thing.” According to the outlet, Hawkins appeared at the station this week and said that he wanted to confess to the murder of Frank McAlister, then 19, who was killed in 1993. Police believe that McAlister had been robbed, and during the course of the robbery, he was murdered and his body left in the woods. His car was found abandoned at a Costco parking lot with a “large amount of blood.”

Powerful 7.3 earthquake strikes off coast of Peru, Sparks tsunami warning: One dead, 20 injured
A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has hit the coast of Peru in the Ring of Fire region, sparking tsunami fears. The massive quake hit 31km south-southwest of Acari, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS). One person died and 20 people have been injured after the seismic movement which had an epicenter in Lomas. Houses in the Arequipa region have been destroyed and electricity is out. In the town of Yauca, Justo Palomino Yucra, 55, was crushed to death. Provincial mayor of Caravelí, Santiago Neyra confirmed the death following the earthquake.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said tsunami waves are possible within 300 km of the epicenter along the coast of Peru. National Weather Service officials also claimed there is a tsunami risk, around 186 miles from the centre. Peru is located in the Ring of Fire, an area in the Pacific Ocean prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said: “Hazardous tsunami waves are forecast for some coasts.”

Date Setter Claims North Korea Will ‘Start WW3 Triggering Rapture in April’
ATTENTION: The following report does not reflect the views or beliefs of ETH.

Here we go again, Yet another date setting prediction that will be another flop! North Korea will start World War 3 and trigger the Rapture in April “beyond any shadow of a doubt” in April, it has been claimed. David Meade, a self-style Christian Bible code decipherer, has said we are in the “midnight of the end of days”. Fundamentalist Christians believe there will be a Rapture and seven years of Tribulation with apocalyptical conditions on Earth when the Antichrist rises before the Second Coming of Christ and true believers are saved by God. Mr Meade is among them and has spent 20 years

trying to unlock hidden messages about our future in verses from the Bible. He claims the “unfolding” chain of events began with a sign in the heavens during the August 21 total solar eclipse. Writing on conspiracy theory website PlanetXnews.com, Mr Meade said: “I am the best natural code breaker you’ll find on the topic of Biblical eschatology, which I’ve studied for 20 years. “What I’m revealing here people have searched for over a period of centuries. “My book The End of Days tells the entire story.

Deadly Flu griping the nation, Overwhelming ERs and leaving 20 children dead
The flu virus has reached nearly every corner of the nation. Influenza activity is widespread in all states except Hawaii (and the District of Columbia), according to the weekly flu report released Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Flu is everywhere in the US right now,” said Dr. Dan
Jernigan, director of the CDC’s influenza branch. “This is the first year we’ve had the entire continental US at the same level (of flu activity) at the same time.”
It has been an early flu season that seems to be peaking now, he said, with a 5.8% increase in laboratory-confirmed cases this week over last. There were 11,718 new laboratory-confirmed cases during the week ending January 6, bringing the season total to 60,161. These numbers do not include all people who have had the flu, as many do not see a doctor when sick. Seven additional pediatric deaths were reported during the week ending January 6, bringing the total for the season to 20.

The incredible message from a 27-year-old dying woman

The incredible message from a 27-year-old dying woman
Holly Butcher, who recently died at age 27 of a rare form of cancer that affects the bones, wrote a letter to her friends and family in her last week of life-giving wise and moving advice about how to get the most out of whatever time we each have on Earth. I’ve gleaned 14 life lessons from the young Australian woman’s incredible letter that I think carry profound lessons for us all. Here they are, with words from her letter quoted below each lesson, in Australian spellings just as she wrote them:
1. Life is a gift and your time could be up at any moment.
“It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right. I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go. I love my life. I am happy. But the control is out of my hands.”
2. Your problems are tiny and often meaningless.
“Those times you are whinging about ridiculous things (something I have noticed so much these past few months), just think about someone who is really facing a problem.”
3. Stop worrying about the small stuff – and when things don’t go your way.
“Let all that s— go … I swear you will not be thinking of those things when it is your turn to go. It is all SO insignificant when you look at life as a whole.”

Tear-Jerking Moment a Homeless Boy Breaks Down in Tears Are Receiving His Very Own Bed

Tear-Jerking Moment a Homeless Boy Breaks Down in Tears Are Receiving His Very Own Bed
A homeless boy from Detroit, Michigan, had his Christmas wish come true, when his family was able to move into a fully furnished home that, much to his delight, included a bed of his own. Daeyers and his mother Dionna had been living in and out of homeless shelters after she lost her job as a trainee nurse. According to the Daily Mail, when the mother and son moved into state housing, all they had to live with
were an inflatable mattress and a few chairs, meaning the eight-year-old slept on a pile of blankets on the floor. With the help of non-profit Humble Design, an organization “helping families transitioning out of homeless shelters by providing furnishings and design services,” Daeyers and his mom were able to celebrate Christmas in a fully furnished home that included the only gift the little boy hoped to receive—his own bed.

Facebook blocks funding for major pro-life movie
A crowdfunding site for a theatrical drama in production that promises to tell the “true story” of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that established a “right” to abortion has been blocked by Facebook. The movie’s producer, Nick Loeb, told WND the content of the pro-life movie, which exposes Planned
Parenthood’s roots in the eugenics movement, clearly is the reason for the censorship. “They have even blocked people sharing the ads I paid for,” Loeb said. “This is stealing or fraud.” Facebook has not responded to requests for an explanation. Loeb told WND he and his colleagues are looking for a lawyer to take on the case.

Ice cream bars recalled from dozens of chain stores due to listeria concerns
A dairy company is voluntarily recalling ice cream bars sold at Kroger, Jewel, Aldi and dozens of other store chains in the U.S. and Puerto Rico due to possible listeria contamination. At issue are are orange cream bars, raspberry cream bars, chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars and variety packs including those flavors, made in 2017 at Fieldbrook Foods’ Dunkirk, N.Y. plant on the Hoyer 1 Line.
Routine testing discovered Listeria monocytogenes in a few ice cream bars and during subsequent sampling, according to the company. Production and distribution of all items manufactured on that line have been halted. Listeria may cause serious or fatal infections in young children, the elderly and people who have weakened immune systems, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Measles exposure risk at Newark Airport
Health officials in New Jersey are warning passengers who traveled through Newark Liberty International Airport earlier this month that they may have been exposed to measles. The New Jersey Department of Health says an international traveler with a confirmed case of the highly contagious
disease arrived in Terminal C on Jan. 2, departed for Indianapolis from a domestic terminal, and may have gone to other areas of the airport. They say anyone at the airport between 6:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 2 may have been exposed and could develop symptoms as late as Jan. 23.

British Girls’ School Bans Staff from Calling Students ‘Girls’
The Altrincham Grammar School for Girls in the United Kingdom has officially banned its teacher from addressing its students as “girls.” Altrincham Grammar for Girls sent out a letter last week informing student’s parents that teachers would officially be prohibited from referring to their students as “girls.”Headteacher Stephanie Gill explained in a letter to the student’s parents: “We are working to
break ingrained habits in the way we speak to and about students, particularly referring to them collectively as “girls.” In an interview with the BBC, a local resident condemned the decision. “It’s ridiculous. We live in an age where we have to respect people’s views and if people have issues around gender and sexuality we have to understand that. But girls should be referred to as girls,” the resident said.

Facebook drastically changes News Feed to make it “good for people” (and bad for most publishers)

Facebook drastically changes News Feed to make it “good for people” (and bad for most publishers)
Facebook is making big, immediate changes to News Feed. The company will now prioritize content from friends, family, and groups over “public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post-Thursday night. News publishers that have relied on Facebook for traffic will suffer: “Some news helps start conversations on important issues,” Zuckerberg wrote. “But too often today, watching video, reading news or getting a page update is just a passive experience.”
The change, Facebook admits, is major. Users will be given “more opportunities to interact with the people they care about,” which necessarily means less publisher content, Adam Mosseri, Facebook’s VP of News Feed, wrote in a post-Thursday:
Because space in News Feed is limited, showing more posts from friends and family and updates that spark conversation means we’ll show less public content, including videos and other posts from publishers or businesses. As we make these updates, Pages may see their reach, video watch time and referral traffic decrease. The impact will vary from Page to Page, driven by factors including the type of content they produce and how people interact with it. Pages making posts that people generally don’t react to or comment on could see the biggest decreases in distribution. Pages whose posts prompt conversations between friends will see less of an effect.

Russia carries out massive military drill with thousands of troops simulating attack
Russia has sparked fears of a potential war looming as thousands of troops simulated a deadly attack during huge military drills. Pictures from the Khmelyovka training ground show soldiers in a massive range of war scenarios, including detonating weapons on the battlefield. Huge explosions are seen in some of the photos, blasting sand from the beach as fireball erupted.

Troops were seen testing out UR-77 Meteroit mine clearing systems, or working with an array of pistols and guns. And flares filled the air with smoke as soldiers advanced on their targets under the cover of the thick black plumes. The drills involved more than1,000 soldiers, including the engineer and sapper units of the Russian Navy’s Baltic Fleet.

Christians From Egypt, India, and Vietnam Detail Persecution They Face
Christians from various parts of the world recently detailed for The Christian Post how they, their families, friends and ministries have been persecuted simply because they worship Jesus Christ. On Wednesday, Open Doors USA rolled out its 2018 World Watch List and announced that as many as 215 million followers of Christ throughout the world are being persecuted for their faith.

Christians from Egypt, India and Vietnam traveled to the U.S. to attend the Open Doors press conference held at the National Press Club and to share their own experiences. CP caught up with the international group of believers, who only provided their first names for security reasons, following the press conference to learn more about the types of persecution they face.

Ten Things You Need to Know About the Tribulation

Ten Things You Need to Know About the Tribulation
(By Christian Evidence) Some people teach that the Church should prepare for trouble, and had better prepare themselves in order to survive the great tribulation soon to come, just in case, because we might find ourselves in the midst of it. It’s true that we should never think that, since we know Jesus, we’ll not experience anything bad. But it’s not true that the Church should prepare in order to survive the tribulation. The true Church will NOT be in the tribulation, not at all!

1. Believers escaping wrath is taught plainly in scripture. The Bible clearly says in 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Luke 21:36, and Revelation 3:10, that believers escape before the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. Read it for yourself!

The Lord Himself promised to deliver us — Rev 3:10
The church is to be delivered from the wrath to come — 1 Thess 1:9-10
Christians are not appointed to wrath — 1 Thess 5:9; 1, Thess 4 & 1 Thess 5:1-2
2. Consistency in symbolism. Noah and his family escape before the Flood comes. As a matter of fact, God commanded Noah and his family to enter the ark seven days before the Flood came (Genesis 7:1-10) just as the Church will escape seven years before God’s wrath is fully poured out. Similarly, Lot and his family escaped from Sodom before the city was destroyed. In particular, Jesus said the last days would be like in the time of Noah and Lot! Why should God make believers go through wrath this time?

School Agrees to Pay $800,000 After Transgender Student Born Female Is Denied Use of Boys’ Bathrooms
A school board in Wisconsin has agreed to pay $800,000 to settle a lawsuit in the case of a transgender former student born female who was initially denied the request to use boys’ bathrooms. The Kenosha Unified School Board voted 5-2 Tuesday night in favor of the $800,000 settlement, Kenosha News reported. Lawyers said that $650,000 of that sum would go toward attorney’s fees. The student, Ash Whitaker, a biological female who identifies as a male, claimed the school had carried out discriminatory
practices in requiring that students use the bathrooms of the gender they were born with. Whitaker, who graduated Tremper High School in June 2017, also claimed that school staff would monitor trips to the bathroom. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled in May to uphold U.S. District Court Judge Pamela Pepper’s injunction allowing Whitaker to use male-only restrooms despite the school’s directives.

7 Signs of Prosperity Pimps
Jan 12, 2018 | 0 |

7 Signs of Prosperity Pimps
(By Joseph Mattera) I believe very strongly that God wants to bless His people and give them an abundant life (John 10:10). I also believe poverty is a curse and something the gospel reverses when biblical principles are applied properly. Furthermore, I do not believe pastors and church ministers should take a vow of poverty and that churches should give ample compensation to their lead pastors. That being said, I have been appalled by what I am calling in this article “prosperity pimps”—which are those who use the word of God primarily as a means of personal profit (1 Tim. 6: 5). The following are seven signs of prosperity pimps:
1. When the focus of the ministry is always raising money
I have no issue with churches and ministries taking large segments of a service at times to raise money. After all, without money ministry cannot continue. What I am referring to in this point is the fact that some preachers use their platform to be purveyors of “prosperity” every time they minister. When raising money is the primary focus of a minister every time they have a platform—that is a red flag to me (and a sign they may be a prosperity pimp!).

.Why Is It Difficult to Tell the Difference Between a Christian and Non-Christian?

Why Is It Difficult to Tell the Difference Between a Christian and Non-Christian?
(By Bert Farias) This is God’s heart for His people: “O that there were such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!” (Deut. 5:29). “He shall be the stability of your times, a wealth of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is His treasure” (Isa. 33:6). A heart to truly obey Him is what the Lord has always looked for in His people. This heart is cultivated through our love for the Lord and holy fear. This fear is birthed in God’s people primarily through a knowledge of His judgments.
Notice in the early days of the church, the effect the judgment that fell on Ananias and Sapphira had on the people. “In hearing these words, Ananias fell down and died. And great fear came on all those who heard these things” (Acts 5:5). “At once she fell down at his feet and died. Upon entering, the young men found her dead and carried her out and buried her beside her husband. Great fear came on the entire church and on all those who heard these things. Many signs and wonders were performed among the people by the hands of the apostles. And they were all together in Solomon’s Porch. No one else dared join them, but the people respected them. Believers were increasingly added to the Lord, crowds of both men and women” (Acts 5:10-14).

Food riots grip western Venezuela, Cattle slaughtered by Mob in field
Hungry mobs ransacked a food collection center, and a supermarket in Venezuela’s western Andean state of Merida on Thursday and reportedly even slaughtered cattle grazing in a field as unrest over food shortages spread through the country. An opposition lawmaker from Merida, Carlos Paparoni, said four people had died and 10 were injured in the chaos over the last two days,
but he did not specify the circumstances. Four years of recession and the world’s highest inflation have plunged millions of Venezuelans into poverty, and President Nicolas Maduro’s authoritarian socialist regime faces mounting unrest. Venezuela’s Information Ministry did not respond to a request for information about the latest disturbances to rock the nation of 30 million people.

[PHOTO: UNSPLASH:CATHALMACANBHEATHA]
Some people teach that the Church should prepare for trouble, and had better prepare themselves in order to survive the great tribulation soon to come, just in case, because we might find ourselves in the midst of it.

It's true that we should never think that, since we know Jesus, we'll not experience anything bad. But it's not true that the Church should prepare in order to survive the tribulation. The true Church will NOT be in the tribulation, not at all!

1. Believers escaping wrath is taught plainly in scripture. The Bible clearly says in 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Luke 21:36, and Revelation 3:10, that believers escape before the Time of Jacob's Trouble. Read it for yourself!

The Lord Himself promised to deliver us — Rev 3:10
The church is to be delivered from the wrath to come — 1 Thess 1:9-10
Christians are not appointed to wrath — 1 Thess 5:9; 1, Thess 4 & 1 Thess 5:1-2
2. Consistency in symbolism. Noah and his family escape before the Flood comes. As a matter of fact, God commanded Noah and his family to enter the ark seven days before the Flood came (Genesis 7:1-10) just as the Church will escape seven years before God's wrath is fully poured out. Similarly, Lot and his family escaped from Sodom before the city was destroyed. In particular, Jesus said the last days would be like in the time of Noah and Lot! Why should God make believers go through wrath this time?

Also, Joseph was a "type" of the Church and he was removed from his land and ended up in Egypt where he became royalty just as the Church will be raptured from this lowly earth and enthroned in Heaven (Revelation 3:21, 4:4). Then the land of Israel underwent seven years of terrible famine while Joseph was tucked safely away in palaces of splendor. A foreshadowing of the Time of Jacob's Trouble if there ever was one since Jacob himself, and his other sons, were suffering in the famine.

Another example was the Prophet Daniel who had been elevated to a high position in Babylon when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fiery furnace. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were a shadow of Israel being protected during the Tribulation while Daniel was a shadow of the Church, which will be far away from harm. Though later, Daniel himself becomes a shadow of Israel when he is protected in the midst of the den of lions.

Additionally, Jewish wedding customs at the time of Christ were a perfect parallel to the pre-tribulational rapture: the groom came and "purchased" his bride, making a binding, unbreakable agreement to return for her, he then went away to prepare a place for her in his father's house, and then around one year later returned for her with a "shout". The groom and the bride went into the bridal chamber in the father's house where they remained hidden away for seven days while wedding guests celebrated outside.

3. The "departure" of the Church.

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition..." (2 Thessalonians 2:3)

The Greek word for perdition, in the above verse, is apostasia, which means "departure" rather than "falling away". The context in the passage (gathering of the Church, removal of the restrainer, and revealing of the antichrist), make this Scripture almost certainly a description of the rapture of the Church. If apostasia does refer to the rapture in this verse (and strong evidence suggests so) then on the basis of this passage alone, mid-trib, pre-wrath, and post-trib theories would be completely disproven.

2 Thessalonians 2 has another strong bit of evidence for the pre-trib rapture, which can be found in verses 6-7. We learn quite clearly that the man of lawlessness (the antichrist) cannot be revealed until a certain restrainer is removed. Most commentaries regard the restrainer to be the Holy Spirit working in and through the Church. The removal of the restrainer necessitates a pre-tribulational rapture.

4. The Church is conspicuously absent from Revelation chapters 5 through 19. The word "Church" is mentioned 22 times in Rev. 1-3, but is not mentioned again until Rev. 22:17. The Book of Revelation is primarily about the events transpiring during the Tribulation and the Church is not mentioned one time between chapters 5 and 19. Even more, Revelation 4:1 is a type or shadow of the rapture where the Apostle John is "caught up" to Heaven at the sound of a trumpet.

The 24 elders, which most biblical scholars consider to be a picture of the glorified Church in Heaven, are already present in Heaven in chapter 4 and from Heaven John and the elders are able to witness the Tribulation events occurring "below" on earth. The only allusion to the Church in these chapters is found in Revelation 12, specifically Revelation 12:5, where a male child that represents the corporate Church is raptured to Heaven before Israel (the woman) enters into Tribulation.

5. Angels don't resurrect people when they gather them for judgment.When the angels are sent forth to gather the elect at the second coming (Matt. 24:29-31), some have wrongly interpreted this as the rapture (post-trib theory).

There is one huge problem with this interpretation. If we are resurrected at this time, why would we need angels to gather us? In the resurrection, we will be like the angels (Matt. 22:30), able to travel in the air at will. Obviously, these people who are gathered are not resurrected, therefore it can't be the rapture. No one would claim the wicked are raptured at this time, yet Matthew 13:39-41, 49 says the angels will not only gather the elect, but also the wicked. This gathering is not a resurrection.

6. Contradicting two separate events. Concerning the return of Jesus, the Bible presents a day we can't know and a day we can know. Matthew 25:13 says Jesus will return at an unknown time, while Revelation 12:6 says the Jews will have to wait 1,260 days for the Lord to return. The 1,260 days begins when the Antichrist stands in the Temple and declares himself to be God (Matt. 24:15-21, 2 Thess. 2:4) This event will take place at the mid-point of the seven year Tribulation (Dan 9:27).

The Antichrist has authority to rule for 42 months, which is 1,260 days (Rev. 13:4) and will be destroyed by Jesus at His second coming (Rev. 19:20, 2 Thess. 2:8). The known and unknown days must happen at different times, meaning they are two separate events. Another example is First Thessalonians 4:13-17, it says the righteous are taken and the wicked are left behind. Matthew 13:30, 49 says the wicked are taken first and righteous are left behind. This points to two separate events. The rapture and the second coming are clearly SEPARATE!

7. No mention of resurrection at Second Coming. Revelation 19:11-21 doesn't mention a resurrection. However, the rapture is a resurrection of those "in Christ" (1 Thess. 4:13-18). Isn't it a little bit odd that in Rev. 19:11-21, which is the clearest picture of the second coming of Christ, there is no mention of a resurrection? The rapture will be the biggest event since the resurrection of Jesus where hundreds of millions of Christians will be resurrected and translated, yet there isn't any mention here. Don't you think it deserves at least one verse? Also, Zechariah 14:1-15 is an Old Testament picture of Jesus returning to earth at the second coming. Again, no mention of a resurrection. The rapture isn't mentioned because it doesn't happen at the second coming.

8. Who will populate the Millennium? If the rapture occurs at the second coming and the wicked are cast into hell at that time, who will be left to populate the millennium? Only people in their natural (non-resurrected) bodies will be able to have children (Matt. 22:30). With a Pre-Tribulation rapture, the people saved after the rapture who are alive at the second coming will populate the earth during the Millennium.

9. Jesus will receive us to Himself, not us to receive Him (John 14:2-3). Jesus said He would prepare a place for the Church in heaven, then He would come again to receive us to Himself. Why would Jesus prepare a place for us in heaven and then not take us there? At the rapture, He will come to receive us to Himself, "that where I am (heaven), there you may be also." If the rapture occurred at the same time as the second coming, we would go up to the clouds and then immediately come back to earth. That would contradict John 14:2-3.

10. Revelation 12 birth (rapture) before labor (tribulation). Revelation 12 has personally ended the debate for me. In this verse, the woman represents Israel and the child in Revelation 12:5 appears to be a symbol of the Church and this particular child is said to be "raptured" to Heaven.

The timing of this child's birth and rapture is before the woman goes into labor (Isaiah 66:7-8)! There was widespread agreement among conservative evangelical scholars in the 16th through 19th centuries that the male child is in fact the Church. Over 25 prominent theologians agree with this. In fact, the founders of modern dispensationalism who re-popularized the pre-trib rapture such as Darby and Ironside found Revelation 12:5 to actually be the chief proof-text of the pre-tribulational rapture of the Church.

These differing views (mid-trib, pre-wrath, and post-trib theories) are based upon different approaches, presuppositions, and argumentation. In fact, they substantially contradict each other. If trying to read scripture literally, each of these views have increasing difficulties. Mid-trib, pre-wrath, and post-trib proponents handle these Scriptures in a variety of creative ways, whereas the pre-trib view is better able to harmonize the many events of end-time prophecy. There are many awkward difficulties with the other differing views.

Christian Evidence was created to enable Christians to defend their faith, and to open their eyes up to the overwhelming evidence for Christianity. We hope to answer many common questions people have regarding Christianity, as well as displaying the overwhelming evidence for creation, evidence against evolution, the amazing end time prophecies that have unfolded before our eyes, and the incredible proofs of God. Any questions you have, feel free to ask. Signs are all around of the end times, which should encourage us to spread the gospel! Find out more at www.christianevidence.net

Tropical Cyclone “Ava” causes floods and landslides, leaves 29 dead
Tropical Cyclone “Ava” reached a peak intensity of 167 km/h (103 mph), an equivalent to Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale, just hours before it made landfall over Toamasina, Madagascar on January 5, 2018. Heavy rain was falling across northern Madagascar since January 3 and increased with the landfall, producing deadly floods and landslides. “On a national scale, the provisional toll is 29
dead, 22 missing, 17 170 displaced and 83 023 affected,” the National Bureau for Risk and Catastrophe Management (BNGRC) said in a statement. There are no less than 20 000 extensive damage claims. Among the worst hit areas are the capital Antananarivo, where more than 3 200 people were evacuated from their homes. The center of the cyclone has now left the island nation and there are no more alerts in effect.

Bangladesh struck by coldest temperatures ever recorded
Severe cold wave engulfed Bangladesh this week with record-breaking low temperatures, the coldest the country has seen since record-keeping started in 1948. At least 12 people, including 6 children, died of cold-related ailments in just 4 days. Temperatures in parts of Bangladesh dropped to 2.6 °C (36.7 °F) on Monday, January 8, 2018, well below average for the country used to mild winters. “It is the lowest temperature since authorities started keeping records in 1948,” Shamsuddin Ahmed, head of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD), told AFP.
The previous record low of 2.8 °C (37 °F) was recorded in 1968, he added. The worst affected were country’s northern regions, where at least 12 people died of cold-related ailments, including 6 children in just 4 days in Rajshahi, Kurigram and Thakurgaon districts. However, unusually low temperatures also affected its southern regions. Capital Dhaka recorded 9.5 °C (49.1 °F) on Monday, the lowest temperature this season, BMD said. The city’s lowest temperature ever was 5.6 °C (42 °F) recorded in 1964.

‘God Had a Plan for Me’: Teen’s Miracle Recovery Stuns Doctors after a Car Landed on His Head
Juan Spence is the definition of a walking miracle. On May 22, 2017, the Williamsburg teen was involved in a near-fatal car accident near his Warhill High school. Juan was a passenger in his friend’s car that rainy Spring day. “My friend is speeding away down the road,” Juan told CBN News in a recent interview at his home. “Due to all the rainwater, he loses control of the car. He hits a post, the car starts tumbling down the road and me not having my seatbelt was terrible,” he recalled.
“I couldn’t believe it. I crashed through the sunroof head first, landed onto the roadway and the car still tumbling, rests on me and crushes my body and my skull.” Juan had been ejected from the car, which landed on his head. He was rushed to MCV Hospital in Richmond Virginia. Doctors said the pressure and swelling in his brain was so bad that a piece of his skull had to be removed. Meanwhile his mother, Elizabeth Butler began to pray as soon as she heard about the crash.

3 Crucial Points All Prayer Warriors Need to Remember
Jan 10, 2018 | 0 |
3 Crucial Points All Prayer Warriors Need to Remember
(By Michael Youssef) There are three things to remember when praying for our world, our neighbors, our friends and our family members. We must employ penitent, persistent and persuasive prayer. The Bible gives us an example of an effective intercessor in Abraham’s intercession for Sodom (see Gen. 18:16-33).
Penitent Prayer: Abraham did not come to God demanding. He didn’t say, “God, please do this. It’s very important for You to do this.” He did not come to God enumerating all his righteous deeds, all his righteous acts. In fact, he said, “I am nothing but dust and ashes” (Gen. 18:27b. NIV).
Persistent Prayer: When Abraham interceded for Sodom, he persisted in his prayer. He didn’t pray flippantly once or twice then give up. He continually petitioned for Sodom and his family. Six times Abraham would make his request of the Lord. Each time he saw the grace of God extended, and he became emboldened to ask for more.
Persuasive Prayer: How should our prayers be persuasive? By twisting God’s arm? No. Persuasive prayer is pleading the character of God. When we plead with God on the basis of who He is and what He promises, we are praying a persuasive prayer.

California flooding death toll rises to 17, 100 homes destroyed
The death toll in weather-related incidents in Santa Barbara County has risen to 17 by Wednesday, after a storm led to dangerous mudflows that destroyed 100 homes and damaged at least 300 others in wildfire burn areas. Santa Barbara County Fire Department officials confirmed the number of fatalities rose from 13 to 15 overnight. Then another two deaths were added to the toll in an afternoon press conference. The fatality figure could increase as at least 17 people were considered still missing as
search-and-rescue efforts continued “While we hope it will not, we expect that this number will increase as we continue to look for people who are still missing and unaccounted for,” Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said. More than 500 first responders and 10 search dogs were involved in the search-and-rescue efforts. Three people were rescued on Wednesday. Searchers believe they have looked through about 75 percent of the debris field.

How Some Christians Become the Devil’s Minions

How Some Christians Become the Devil’s Minions
(By J. Lee Gray) A friend of mine who pastors a growing church recently got a visit from a worried church member who said she had an important message from the Lord for him. When they met, the woman began to warn him about another woman in the church who, she claimed, was going to tear the church apart. The pastor listened carefully and then asked a few questions. Had the woman in question said something derogatory to reveal her alleged evil intentions? What was she doing to tear the church apart? Was there proof? After all, the woman being accused was a supportive volunteer who seemed to get along with everyone.
The woman with the “word from the Lord” got defensive and said she knew she was right because she had “a gift of discernment.” She didn’t need to corroborate her story or provide concrete evidence. She just “knew.” When the woman bringing this accusation was told she was out of bounds, she left the meeting in a huff—and then left the church because her super-spiritual insight was not received. In this case, the woman who claimed to have a hotline to God did not have “discernment”—she was exhibiting a spirit of accusation. She had what I jokingly refer to as “the gift of suspicion.” Ironically, she is the one who is guilty of tearing the church apart.

Markets Jittered By China Threat To Halt US Treasuries

Markets Jittered By China Threat To Halt US Treasuries
China, the biggest buyer of U.S. sovereign bonds, could be slowing down or even halting its purchases, according to a report. Bloomberg News reported Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter, that officials in Beijing have recommended the Chinese government lower — or even stop — its buying of U.S. sovereign debt. The report also notes that Chinese officials think U.S. debt is becoming less attractive compared with other assets, adding that trade tensions between the two countries could provide a reason to slow down or halt the purchases.
“If China stops buying Treasuries, the market could suffer,” strategists at Jefferies said. “Treasury financing needs are going to rise significantly in 2018 and beyond relative to recent history, so Treasury is going to be looking for as many sources of demand as they can find.” The news is worrying markets. Treasury prices fell, boosting yields. The dollar also dropped against most currencies and gold rose. U.S. equities declined.

Former Teacher Has Certificates Suspended for Speaking Against Homosexuality on Facebook
The New Jersey Department of Education has suspended the teaching certificates of a former high school teacher who came under fire seven years ago for speaking against the sin of homosexuality on Facebook. As previously reported, Jenye “Viki” Knox, 56, first came under fire in June 2011 after she posted comments on Facebook decrying the promotion of the homosexual lifestyle Union High School. The
school had reportedly erected a display in acknowledgment of “Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Month,” which featured popular homosexual celebrities. “It’s still there,” she vented on her personal Facebook page. “I’m pitching a fit.” The status then began to spark discussion, which turned into a controversy when others were offended by her comments. Knox, a born-again Christian who also had served as the adviser for the school’s Bible study group, defended the Bible’s position on homosexuality when others challenged her status.

PROPHECY WATCH: Earth’s Volcanoes Are Waking Up: Dormant Papua New Guinea Volcano Erupts For First Time
Hundreds of people are fleeing the island of Kadovar after a violent volcano has erupted for the first time in history. There have also been warnings that tsunamis could strike the island after the alarming eruption. Mount Tavurvur, in the town of Rabaul in East New Britain province, erupted at 3 a.m. Friday morning, local time. The volcano, located in Papua New Guinea, was thought to be dormant. It has now erupted for the first time in known history, spewing ash thousands of feet into the air and forcing the evacuation of hundreds of residents. But the worst could be forthcoming, as experts now fear this surprising eruption could lead to landslides and tsunamis in the area.
“Due to the steepness of the island, landslides are possible and together with the explosive nature of magma, tsunamis may be generated,” the Rabual Volcanological Observatory said in a statement. “It appears from satellite imagery and aerial photographs that it started with mild Vulcanian activity from a vent at the southeast base. It appears a fissure may be opening just inside of the western wall of the net’s breach descending down to at least sea level,” the statement continued.

The New Normal For Church Security

The New Normal For Church Security
We recently experienced a new tipping point for church security. A tipping point is the critical juncture in evolving developments that leads to a new and, often, irreversible state. We call that new state “the new normal.” In church security we have witnessed two major tipping points. Though child sex abuse in churches was not new, it reached a new level of awareness and response when Pope John Paul II called an emergency meeting with the U. S. cardinals in 2002. We knew then the issue was serious and pervasive.
We reached a second major tipping point in November 2017 with the church shootings at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Among the 26 people killed were nine members of one family. Church leaders and members across the nation began to realize that if it can happen in Sutherland Springs, it can happen anywhere. I recently conducted a social media survey to ask church leaders and members to share what their churches were doing for church security.

Worst country to be Christian revealed and 50 danger zones named
Christians are facing the threat of murder, rape and torture around the world, with new areas around the world emerging as the next “hotbed” for persecution. North Korea has been named as the worst place to be a Christian in the world, with Kim Jong-un’s hermit state topping Open Doors’ 2018 watchlist. While the torturous totalitarian regime regularly features at the top of the terrifying list, Open Doors gave a
new stark warning for Christians in South East Asia, which they named the “next emerging perception hotbed”. North Korea has topped Open Doors’ yearly list of worst states for the 16th year running with Saudi Arabia and Somalia the only two other states to have been ranked first during the 26 years Open Doors has been creating the list. The Open Doors report said: “North Korea remains the most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian. Believers are forced to worship in secret – if they are discovered they are taken to labour camps.

Kyler Baughman was a seemingly fit 21-year-old who was working and going to school like any normal 21-year-old. “He was into physical fitness,” said his mother, Beverly Baughman. “He was going to school to be a personal trainer.” But when he came to visit for the holidays, he wasn’t looking like he was in peak condition. “We saw him the 23rd for our family Christmas get-together and we noticed he wasn’t feeling well,” Beverly Baughman said.
“He looked rundown and had a bit of a snotty nose.” He celebrated with family again Christmas night, and returned to work Tuesday, but he came home early, because he wasn’t feeling well. “He kinda just laid down and went about his day and that was the day he was coughing and said his chest hurt, he had a mild cough,” said his fiancée Olivia Marcanio.

Trump’s new nuke ‘posture’: Draft allows nuclear response to conventional attack and new warheads
The Trump administration is expected to reveal a new, hawkish nuclear doctrine, which reportedly incorporates more cases in which it would use nuclear weapons, and also mandates the development of smaller-yield, simpler warheads. The new Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) is expected to be revealed
sometime after President Donald Trump’s state-of-the-union address in late January and will be the first update of the key strategy document in eight years. According to Jon Wolfsthal, a former special assistant to Barack Obama on arms control and non-proliferation, the final draft that he reviewed is pretty hawkish, but some of the more aggressive suggestions from the initial variant have been dropped. Wolfsthal described the document to The Guardian.

China May Halt Purchases of U.S. Treasuries…
China added to bond investors’ jitters on Wednesday as traders braced for what they feared could be the end of a three-decade bull market. Officials in Beijing reviewing the nation’s foreign-exchange holdings have recommended slowing or halting purchases of U.S. Treasuries, according to people familiar with the matter. Benchmark bonds reversed earlier gains on the news, with the yield on 10-year Treasuries climbing for a fifth day.
China’s foreign-exchange reserves of $3.1 trillion are the world’s largest, though it wasn’t clear whether the recommendations have been adopted. The market for U.S. government bonds is becoming less attractive relative to other assets, and trade tensions with the U.S. may provide a reason to slow or stop buying American debt, the thinking of these officials goes, according to the people, who asked not to be named as they aren’t allowed to discuss the matter publicly.

UPDATE: Massive 7.6 Quake strikes in the Caribbean, One of most powerful Quakes ever in region
A massive 7.6 magnitude earthquake has struck the Caribbean Sea, prompting a tsunami warning for nearby islands including the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. The tremor, one of the largest to hit the Caribbean in recorded history, struck on Tuesday night at about 9.51pm just over 25 miles from the coast of Great Swan Island, belonging to Honduras. The earthquake had a depth of 6.2 miles and rocked several Central American nations.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said a tsunami advisory was put in place for hurricane-hit Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands and warned of possible waves up to three feet above tide level. There were also fears waves could potentially impact the coasts of Central American nations, including Jamaica, Cuba and the Cayman Islands. However, the warnings were later canceled and in the end, no tsunami materialized. Warnings were issued after what was one of the strongest earthquakes to hit the Caribbean in modern times. The 2010 quake that devastated Haiti killing more than 200,000 people was magnitude 7.0.

WASHINGTON (AP) — US officials said Friday that President Donald Trump will extend waivers on Iran sanctions, keeping the landmark 2015 nuclear deal alive for at least another several months despite his past vows to scuttle the deal.

The waivers are being announced Friday. Three officials said the waivers will be accompanied by other, targeted sanctions on Iran and a stern warning that Trump will pull out of the deal negotiated by the Obama administration if fixes aren’t made by spring.

That’s when the next deadline comes for extending sanctions relief for Iran.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly preview the decision.
The officials say Trump’s waiver announcement will also include harsh criticism of Iran’s response to recent protests against the Islamic Republic’s leadership.

(By Andrea Stunz) My husband and I value forward-thinking and troubleshooting in most areas of our lives, especially our marriage. We like to look ahead and point out potential pitfalls that might become challenges. We aren’t always thorough but by trying, we are a step ahead. From the beginning of our almost three decades of marriage, we have tried to focus on making and keeping our marriage healthy. We are keenly aware of the foxes (Song of Solomon 2:15) that prowl the outskirts of our garden seeking to ruin. We are being extra purposeful this year to keep our eyes and hearts focused on maintaining a healthy marriage because we know what happens when we don’t. I would like to share with you five goals that we feel can foster an intentional marriage in 2018.
Live the Gospel – We have a little wooden sign hanging in our house that says, “Every family has a story. Welcome to ours.” Our marriage story is one of immeasurable grace and continually finding ourselves on the path to redemption. We want to live out the Gospel and encourage others to do the same. When people see our marriage, we want them to feel the authentic and welcoming embrace of the Gospel. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27 NIV

What Some Christians Totally Misunderstand About Spiritual Gifts

What Some Christians Totally Misunderstand About Spiritual Gifts
(By Dean Merrill) To hear some Christians talk about spiritual gifts, it evokes the opening crawl of a Star Wars movie: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away …” They reminisce about some wonderful camp meeting back in 1947, when there was “a mighty move of God.” They describe in glowing terms what they saw in an Oral Roberts or Kathryn Kuhlman healing crusade. They hark back to the Azusa Street awakening in Los Angeles (1906-09) and how, in spite of the prevailing Jim Crow laws and attitudes, the Holy Spirit brought whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians together in a great flow of spiritual renewal.
Somehow I hear the voice of Gideon in the background, who said to the angel, “”O my lord, if the Lord is with us, then why has all this happened to us? Where are all His miracles that our fathers told us about? They said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us out of Egypt?'” (Judg. 6:13b). He yearned to see God in action now, not just a hundred or two hundred years previous. I echo the earnest plea of the prophet Habakkuk: “O Lord, I have heard the report of You, and was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of these years make them known; in wrath remember mercy” (Hab. 3:2).

Justin Bieber Posts Photo of Reading the Bible to His 95M Instagram Followers
Singer-songwriter Justin Bieber’s latest proclamation of his Christian faith is a photo he posted to his Instagram account over the weekend. It shows him sitting down on an airplane seat, shirtless, with an open Bible on his lap. So far, the image has drawn more than 6 million likes among his more than 95 million followers on the social media site. On Dec. 29, the 23-year-old singer had posted a photo of a painting he had created that he titled “Calvary.”
He announced to his fans that he would be auctioning off the painting at a later date with proceeds from the auction going to victims of wildfires in California. The 23-year-old has spent the last year focused on growing deeper in his Christian faith. He has been speaking to his followers about Jesus Christ using social media. Bieber’s Instagram bio currently includes a link to a Bible study by one of his pastor friends, Judah Smith, titled, “How’s Your Soul? Small Group Bible Study.”

Kentucky may be the first state without an abortion facility

Kentucky may be the first state without an abortion facility
EMW Women’s Surgical Center in Louisville, Kentucky, is the last remaining abortion facility in the state. Its sister center in Lexington closed down in 2017 because of unacceptable health conditions at the facility. Live Action News’ Carole Novielli noted in July, “A report written by the Lexington Herald in June of 2016 indicates that when inspectors visited on the Lexington facility on February 17 that year, ‘they reported that employees told them the clinic only performed abortions’ and they found ‘dirty conditions and expired medicine.’
News reports also indicate that state inspectors found unsanitary conditions.” A law in Kentucky requires abortion facilities “to have transfer agreements with a hospital in the event of botched abortions or medical emergencies,” reported Live Action News’ Becky Yeh in September 2017. The law, according to an attorney for the state, is two decades old and has never been enforced, and every state in the area has laws like this one. Regardless, EMW, along with a Planned Parenthood facility in Louisville, sued the state and was granted “a temporary restraining order to stay open until a judge could decide on the matter.” According to the Daily Wire, this matter could be decided upon within a matter of weeks.

Arab League to seek recognition of ‘Palestine’
Jordan announced on Saturday that the Arab League would seek international recognition of a Palestinian state with eastern Jerusalem as its capital, AFP reported. Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi made the announcement at a joint news conference with Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit after talks in Amman on the status of Jerusalem.
The talks were attended by the foreign ministers of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and the Palestinian Authority as well as by the United Arab Emirates minister of state for foreign affairs. “There is a political decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and we will strive to reach an international political decision to recognize a Palestinian state… with (eastern) Jerusalem as its capital,” Safadi declared.

A new generation of L.A. Satanists finds community in blasphemous times

A new generation of L.A. Satanists finds community in blasphemous times
The following is an excerpt from the Los Angeles Times: In November, in the candlelit basement of a house just above the Silver Lake Reservoir, Alexandra James walked over to an altar where her husband, Zachary, waited near a bleached human skull, teeth locked in eternal rictus. From the altar, she lifted a sword and drew points across his chest while a circle of onlookers watched solemnly (well, a few giggled too). An organist played eerie minor key chords and Alexandra turned to face the group. “On this altar we consecrate swords to direct the fire of our unholy will,” she said.
“A human skull, symbol of death. The great mother Lilith created us all, and will destroy us all.” “Hail Satan! Hail Satan! Hail Satan!” The group chanted back. The Jameses had planned the ritual as the climax of a low-key house party that included a dozen or so friends associated with ritual magic — artists, writers, rock musicians who freely mingle occult vocabularies (Satanist, coven, witches), none taken too literally. But a bigger moment came a few hours later when word circulated that Charles Manson had died. Far from mourning a man whose crimes burned satanic imagery into the American mainstream, everyone cracked beers in celebration and jammed on psych rock tunes.

400-Year-Old Bible Survived Invasions, Fire and Even Being Used as Toilet Paper
The incredible story of a 400-year-old Bible is set to be told at the National Library of Wales after the sacred book was discovered hidden away in the back of a church. The leather-bound 1620 Llanwnda Bible survived the invasion of Britain during the 1797 Battle of Fishguard. During the fierce battle, the
army of 1,400 French and Irish troops raided St Gwyndaf’s Church in the Welsh town of Llanwnda and used pages from the Bible to start a fire. The Llanwnda Bible was eventually discovered some 200 years later in the 1990s. “The story goes that the book was rediscovered at the back of the church in the 1990s, and nobody realized what it was,”

Freak Snowfall Covers Sahara Desert in 15 inches of Snow!
More than 15 inches (40cm) has blanketed sand dunes across the small town of Ain Sefra, Algeria. It is the second time snow has hit in nearly 40 years, with a dusting also recorded in December 2016. But this snowfall which hit yesterday is much deeper than the fleeting shower little more than a year ago. Locals, who endure temperatures of 37C in summer, were stunned as dense snow settled on the town, known as
‘the gateway to the desert’. Photographer Karim Bouchetata, who captured the remarkable images, said: “We were really surprised when we woke up to see snow again. It stayed all day on Sunday and began melting at around 5 pm.” Last year’s flurry brought chaos across the town, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy. Children made snowmen and even sledged on the sand dunes.

Rocker Ozzy Osbourne Had An Unexpected Reaction When He Visited The Ark Encounter
When former lead vocalist of British rock band Black Sabbath Ozzy Osbourne announced he would be visiting creationist attraction “Ark Encounter,” a lot of people winced at the prospective awkwardness. Known for his shocking remarks and wacky behavior, the unconventional musician and reality TV star is known as the “Prince of Darkness.” So what would he make of this vast and controversial creationist landmark?
Well, his reaction wasn’t quite what you might expect. Ozzy and his son, Jack, visited the Kentucky attraction as part of their TV show Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour and appeared rather over-awed by the whole experience. “Me on Easter Sunday going to a f—ing ark?” Ozzy barked as he and Jack drove through Grant County. “My people will never believe it.”

Snowmageddon strikes Spain and Italy, Hundreds trapped in vehicles, Blizzard drops major snowfall
Spain deployed 250 soldiers on Sunday to help rescue hundreds of drivers who were trapped overnight in vehicles as heavy snowfall cut off several roads. Two companies of specialist soldiers and 95 vehicles were sent to free hundreds of cars stranded on the AP6 highway linking Madrid and the northwestern city of Segovia. The rough weather comes as many Spaniards are travelling home after the end of the
Christmas holidays. Meanwhile, heavy snow has cut off the Alpine ski resorts of Cervinia in Italy and Adelboden in Switzerland, as stormy weather continues to batter Europe. Some travelers are being trapped since Saturday night… Can you imagine that? Soldiers and firefighters used snowplows to try to clear the snow, and distributed blankets and hot drinks to motorists. But what do you do when you run out of gas? How do you stay warm?

2017 was the most costly U.S. disaster year on record

2017 was the most costly U.S. disaster year on record
Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria combined with devastating Western wildfires and other natural catastrophes to make 2017 the most expensive year on record for disasters, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported Monday. The disasters caused $306 billion in total damage in 2017, with 16 separate events that caused more than $1 billion in damage each. The bulk of the damage, at $265 billion, came from hurricanes in particular.
“2017 was a historic year for billion-dollar weather and climate disasters,” said Adam Smith, an economist for NOAA, on a media call with reporters. The record-breaking year raises concerns about the effects of future natural disasters, as scientists fear climate change could make extreme weather events more damaging. Hurricane Harvey, which sparked extreme flooding in Houston and the surrounding area in August and September, caused $125 billion in damage, the year’s most expensive disaster. Hurricane Maria, which in September set off a fatal and ongoing humanitarian crisis in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico and elsewhere, caused $90 billion in damage.

Russia-China real gold standard means end of US dollar dominance

Russia-China real gold standard means end of US dollar dominance
The BRICS counties are considering starting an internal gold trading platform, according to Russian officials. When this happens, the global economy will be significantly reshaped, and the West will lose its dominance, predicts a precious metals expert. In 2016, 24,338 tons of physical gold were traded, which was 43 percent more than in 2015, according to Claudio Grass, of Precious Metal Advisory Switzerland. We have to put the BRICS initiative into a broader context. It is just part of a geopolitical tectonic shift which started decades ago. We have seen a constant outflow of physical gold from the West to the East. At the same time, the West has lost the economic war, and as a consequence,
the focus now turns to the financial system. China dominates the world economy and has displaced the US as the world’s most formidable economic powerhouse,” he told RT. “As Bejing and Moscow understand that America used the dollar to control the world, by implementing a new kind of ‘Gold standard 2.0’ they want to distance themselves from this control. Furthermore, the vast majority of the people in Asia sees gold as superior, or ‘real’ money, something the West has forgotten, because of all the paper wealth (credit) they have accumulated,” said Grass. The expert notes the BRICS countries account for 40 percent of the world’s population and around 23 percent of the world’s domestic product.

‘Prophecy is Being Fulfilled’: Ancient Biblical Jerusalem Was Hidden for 2,000 Years Until Archeologist’s Incredible Find
For eons, people assumed that ancient biblical Jerusalem was part of the Old City, an area inside modern-day Jerusalem — but a British archeologist shattered that definitive claim 150 years ago when he made a discovery that had reportedly been hidden for nearly 2,000 years. Anarina Heymann, outreach coordinator for the City of David, told CBN News about how archeologist Charles Warren “rediscovered the ancient biblical Jerusalem”
and how that finding has transformed the understanding of the city that King David designated as his capital 3,000 years ago. Heymann explained that the archeological findings at the site have helped “bring the Bible to life” and how she believes, in turn, prophecy is being fulfilled. In the end, she said the excavations, as well as the Bible’s contents, are coming together to give a full picture of Jerusalem’s past.

Gideons No Longer Allowed to Offer Bibles at Kansas Elementary School Following Complaint
Representatives for Gideon International will no longer be allowed to make Bibles available to students at an elementary school in Kansas following a complaint from a national humanist organization. The American Humanist Association (AHA) recently sent a letter to the superintendent of Herington Schools and the principal of Herington Elementary School to advise that it had been contacted by the parents of several children who were unhappy with a recent one-day Bible distribution.
According to the correspondence, the Bibles were placed on a table in a commons area where those interested could freely take a copy. “Your school district has allowed an outside religious organization, believed to be the Gideons, to distribute Bibles to young children at Herington Elementary School. The district’s actions in assisting the Gideons in distributing Bibles to elementary students represents a clear breach of the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution and we hereby demand assurances that this practice will discontinue immediately,” the letter, written by attorney Monica Miller, READ MORE http://christiannews.net/2018/01/07/gideons-no-longer-allowed-to-offer-bibles-at-kansas-elementary-school-following-complaint/

Bed bug infestation makes comeback; Cities infested…
Baltimore is known for its historic neighborhoods, monuments, crab cakes — and, increasingly, its bed bugs. For the second straight year, the U.S. port city ranked No. 1 on a Top 50 Bed Bug Cities list compiled by Atlanta-based pest control services company Orkin LLC. The list, released Monday, is based on the most residential and commercial treatments for the seed-sized bloodsuckers from December 2016 to November 2017, and reflects a rising number of infestations across the U.S.,
according to Tim Husen, an Orkin entomologist. Washington, 40 miles from Baltimore, was ranked second on Orkin’s list, followed by Chicago, Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio. The Baltimore City Health Department doesn’t have any bed bug mitigation programs, according to its website, which gives tips on identifying and controlling the ancient critters.

Wind chill at Mount Washington drops to minus 90 degrees
Summit conditions at Mount Washington were so brutally cold Saturday morning the temperature tied for the second coldest on Earth, according to Mount Washington Observatory. The temperature hit minus 36 degrees Fahrenheit — with a wind chill of minus 90 (minus 68 degrees Celsius), according to the educational and research institution in New Hampshire. “We basically just start saying it’s stupid cold outside,” Mike Carmon, senior meteorologist at Mount Washington Observatory,

told The New York Times. The summit of Mount Washington sits at 6,288 feet above sea level. Frigid conditions have also gripped other parts of the Northeast and are expected to last most of the weekend. On Saturday, wind chill warnings throughout the Northeast hit Burlington, Vermont, with a temperature of minus 1 and a wind chill of minus 30. Both Philadelphia and New York were shivering at 8 degrees, with wind chills of minus 11 in Philadelphia and minus 9 in New York.

Two-thirds of Christians in new survey say they have been spiritually abused
Two-thirds of respondents to an online survey say that they have been spiritually abused, a study has revealed. Academics from Bournemouth University, who carried out the survey on behalf of the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS), a safeguarding charity, received 1591 responses from Christians, 1002 of whom said that they had personally experienced spiritual abuse.

Caution has been expressed about the figures in the survey, whose results form part of the report Understanding Spiritual Abuse in Christian Communities, published on Sunday. A co-author, Justin Humphreys, executive director of safeguarding at CCPAS, said: “Yes, the results are significant, as [being spiritually abused] was not a prerequisite for participation. Having said this, in some ways it is not surprising, as many will have taken this as an opportunity to share their story in anonymous form, possibly for the first time.” The study also acknowledges that definitions of spiritual abuse are not clear cut, and suggests this lack of clarity may be a significant barrier to responding appropriately to its victims within the Church.

Is Artificial Intelligence the Mark of the Beast?

Is Artificial Intelligence the Mark of the Beast?
He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.” (Revelation 13:15)
Artificial intelligence is intelligence displayed by machines, in contrast with the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals. In today’s society, most of us regularly talk to Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant or even the artificial intelligence embedded in our cars, refrigerator, or our home. The AI talks back and responds directly to us about whatever it was that we wanted to know from it or to do for us.
Without even realizing it, human daily interaction with AI has become very common, and is continuing to grow more common. Scientists and others who predict what the future holds (futurists) have even planned, for the future, to name this artificial intelligence (AI), “Singularity.”, when it is no longer just the product of man, but has complete control over itself.

Deadly Flu Outbreak Spreading in UK, Churches Ban Handshakes
The deadly Aussie flu virus is feared to have spread to almost all UK areas following a weekend surge in cases. Dorchester in Dorset and the City of London are now the only places where the “influenza-like illness” has been reported – with churches even banning handshakes in an attempt to curb the spread of infection. Some 4.5million people claimed to have been affected over the past week.
Dartford was one of the last areas to have cases reported, with Essex, Teesside and Devon appearing to be among the worst-hit regions. In the last 24 hours the Brecon Beacons and Telford, which yesterday had no reported cases, were revealed to have at least one each. Figures from the NHS show that over 1,500 people across the country have been struck down with the illness.

This Is the Type of Leadership We Need in the 21st-Century Church

This Is the Type of Leadership We Need in the 21st-Century Church
(By Joseph Mattera) Through the years, I have observed various kinds of leadership styles and methods. Some are effective in certain contexts but greatly limit their reach because of their limited perspective. The purpose of this article is to explore the differences between what I call “lateral” and “vertical” leadership.
By lateral leadership, I am referring to a person who is horizontal in scope and perspective and functions more as a facilitator of vision, ideas and abilities. By vertical leadership, I am referring to a person who is vertical in scope and perspective and has more of a narrow view regarding how to accomplish vision and with whom they will work. Although serving as a lateral leader is more difficult and time-consuming, I am convinced it is the more effective way forward to implement mission for the 21st-century church and marketplace.
Vertical leaders can also be very effective—especially in emergencies and in the short-term. They can be very convincing, dogmatic, entrenched in their own paradigm of doing things and can attract loyal followers to their mission. The question is not whether they are good leaders—the point of this article is the fact that vertical leaders are limiting the scope of their mission because they limit their team to the handful of those who rarely push back at them in the decision-making process. Of course, even lateral leaders have to make the final decision in the event they experience an impasse with their team and cannot reach consensus.

Burning Man Announces Newest Centerpiece: Temple to Greek Goddess
The Burning Man Festival, held in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada in August, has chosen its centerpiece structure, a massive wood temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Gaia, that is just one of the many pagan symbols featured at the popular desert gathering. The festival has certainly evolved from its humble beginnings over 30- years ago when 20 artists gathered on a Beach in San Francisco. The annual event is now a high-profile gathering that attracts over 70,000 to its isolated desert location.
The Burning Man organizers announced two weeks ago that they chose the design for the centerpiece temple of the festival. This year they will build a massive structure composed of 20 wood trusses converging as a spiral. In the center will be a large mandala, a symbol used by Buddhists as an aid in meditation. Designed by Mamou-Mani, a London-based French architect, the structure will be titled Galaxia.

5 Biblical Prophecies Fulfilled in 2017 and 5 More Expected in 2018
The year 2017 was packed with what many describe as “remarkable” or “unprecedented” events. Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration and his latest announcement that he sees Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish people are considered by believers to be prophetic signs that the world is coming ever closer to the Messianic area. Breaking Israel News looks back on these prophetic moments and suggests five further prophecies that could be fulfilled in 2018.
In 2017, Jerusalem became a place of assembly, a House of Prayer for all Nations, Jews and non-Jews alike, precisely as prophesied in Zechariah. Tourism to Jerusalem skyrocketed, with arrivals climbing by 25 percent compared to the 2016, and bringing in $5.8 billion of revenue. Such assembly was particularly evident during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, when tens of thousands of Christian tourists arrived to Jerusalem.

Strong quakes Hit San Francisco And Mount St. Helens And Experts Warn They May Be Foreshocks For ‘Something Larger’
(By Michael Snyder) Just when it seemed like things may be settling down, two very unusual earthquakes have hit the west coast within the past couple of days. A 4.4 magnitude quake struck Berkeley, California just prior to 3 AM on Thursday morning, and a 3.9 magnitude earthquake hit Mount St. Helens in Washington state on Wednesday. Overall, there have been 68 earthquakes in the vicinity of Mount St. Helens since New Year’s Day, and there have been a total of 629 earthquakes in the state of California within the last 30 days.
Could it be possible that all of this activity is leading up to a historic seismic disaster on the west coast? The 4.4 magnitude earthquake along the Hayward fault very early on Thursday jolted people out of bed all over the San Francisco area… A strong 4.4 magnitude earthquake has rattled the Bay Area shortly before 3 a.m. USGS is reporting the quake was centered in Berkeley. On KRON4’s real-time earthquake map it shows the epicenter. The quake struck at 2:39 a.m. and was centered near the Claremont hotel. The earthquake had a preliminary depth of 8 miles, according to USGS. This wasn’t a soft and gentle earthquake that everyone kind of laughs about after it is over.

Iran struck 5.1 earthquake injuring at least eight people.
The latest earthquake hit in the west of the Middle Eastern country in the same area that was starting to recover after more than 600 people were killed in the region in November. A number of aftershocks affected the area after the initial earthquake. The earthquake hit Iran’s western province of Kermanshah. The semiofficial ISNA news agency says the Kurdish town of Sarpol-e Zahab, about 520 kilometers west of Tehran, was near the epicenter of the quake.
According to the state media’s report, the earthquake “affected an area of eight kilometers (five miles) and injured eight people.” However, in a contradictory statement, Kermanshan Province Governor Hushang Bazvand reported no damage or casualties. “Fortunately, after all the checks that have been made in the area, there are no reports yet of any damage or casualties,” he told state television.

Indiana flu deaths nearly triple in one week
Deadly flu cases in the state of Indiana have nearly tripled within one week, according to the state health department. For the week ending Dec. 30, the state reported 25 flu-related deaths for the season. There were only nine deaths reported the previous week. 23 of the 25 deaths were in persons ages 50 – 65+. The report does not say where in Indiana the deaths have occurred. The first flu-related death in Indiana
for the 2017-18 season was reported on December 8, more than a month later than the first death of 2016. The first death of the season was a juvenile, according to the Indiana State Department of Health. Flu activity is widespread in Indiana which has prompted several central Indiana hospitals to start restricting visitors.

Kansas School District Halts Bible Giveaway After Secular Group Complains on Behalf of Parents
A school district in Kansas has put an end to it its yearly Bible giveaway at a public elementary school after it received a complaint from one of the nation’s leading secular legal organizations. Herington Elementary School will no longer allow an outside Christian organization to hand out Bibles to students in the school hallway during regular school hours, district Superintendent Ron Wilson said this week. “Our district respects all religious beliefs and the constitutional rights of every student,” Wilson said, according The Kansas City Star.
“We will no longer allow distribution of religious materials.” Wilson’s announcement comes after the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center sent a letter to Wilson and Principal Donalyn Biehler stating that allowing an external Christian group to hand out Bibles to elementary age students is a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Washington state allows 3rd sex option ‘X’ on birth certificates
Washington state will allow residents to change the sex on their birth certificates to a nonbinary option called “X.” “Social norms are changing,” state registrar and Center for Health Statistics director Christie Spice told ABC News today. “When a person’s gender designation on their birth certificate doesn’t match how people present themselves, it opens the door to harassment and intimidation. ”The new rule, announced Thursday and effective Jan. 27, also removes the need for medical approval from a primary
physician for adults who want to change the sex status on their birth certificate. Minors who don’t identify male or female and want to change their sex designation still need written consent from a parent or legal guardian and medical input. The difference now is that the list of health care professionals who can approve the change has expanded for minors to include primary physicians, physician assistants, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and mental health counselors, according to the state Department of Health.

Severe flu brings medicine shortages, Packed ERs, Rising death toll in California…
So many people have fallen sick with influenza in California that pharmacies have run out of flu medicines, emergency rooms are packed, and the death toll is rising higher than in previous years. Health officials said Friday that 27 people younger than 65 have died of the flu in California since October, compared with three at the same time last year. Nationwide and in California, flu activity spiked sharply in late December and continues to grow.
The emergency room at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica typically treats about 140 patients a day, but at least one day this week had more than 200 patients — mostly because of the flu, said the ER’s medical director, Dr. Wally Ghurabi. “The Northridge earthquake was the last time we saw over 200 patients,” Ghurabi said. Experts say it’s possible that this year’s flu season is outpacing the last simply because it’s peaking earlier.

Texas woman dies from flesh-eating bacteria after raw oysters banquet
A Texas woman died in October from a flesh-eating bacteria after she consumed raw oysters. Jeanette LeBlanc was crabbing with her friends and family on the Louisiana coast in September when she contracted the infection, KLFY reported. LeBlanc and her friend Karen Bowers picked up some raw oysters in a Westwego market for a treat.
The two women ate about two dozen raw oysters each before LeBlanc became ill, Bowers said. Bowers said her friend looked like she developed an allergic reaction. “An allergic reaction of sorts, that’s what I would call it. That’s what we thought,” Bowers told KLFY. Two days later, LeBlanc’s condition worsened and doctors informed her that she had vibrio.

Franklin Graham Outraged at Ohio Abortion Billboard Campaign
A large abortion clinic in Ohio is running a new billboard campaign that aims to shift public opinion of abortion. There are 16 billboards and each one has a phrase like, “Abortion is a blessing,” or “Abortion is safer than childbirth.” Preterm, the abortion clinic behind the billboards, encourages people to share images of the billboards using hashtags #AllOfTheAbove and #MyAbortionMyLife.
“We want to push people to think about abortion in new, diverse ways with these billboards,” Nancy Starner, Preterm’s director of development and communications, said in a news release. “We want the people in our community who have had abortions to know that they’re not alone.” Evangelist Franklin Graham posted on social media about the new campaign – sharing a statement of his own about abortion.

East Coast Set for Weekend of Deadly Sub-Zero Temperatures
Brutally cold conditions are expected to envelop the East Coast most of this weekend, prompting wind chill warnings from Virginia to Vermont. Temperatures will reach close to zero from Philadelphia to Boston through Saturday night, with wind chills making it feel like minus 10 degrees to minus 20 degrees. Even more temperate locations won’t escape the cold, with the mercury dipping into the single digits in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., over the weekend — about 20 degrees below normal for this time of year.
The blast of cold air, which comes just days after a storm dumped as much as 18 inches (46 centimeters) of snow in some places, could bring the feeling of real jaw-clenching temperatures to people living further north. The National Weather Service said Friday that temperatures in the Berkshire mountains in western Massachusetts could seem like a frosty minus 35 degrees, parts of New Hampshire and Maine could experience minus 45, and Vermont’s mountain regions could feel like minus 50 degrees.

Standing for Christ in an Age When Atheism Is Fashionable
Jan 5, 2018 | 0  |     
Standing for Christ in an Age When Atheism Is Fashionable
(By Hanne Herland) We live in an age where many question Christianity. It somehow has become fashionable to be an atheist. The mainstream media constantly focus on negative news about Christians. Believers in God are told that they are old-fashioned, outdated and simply out of touch with reality. And many young people struggle, as they don’t quite know how to approach this fervent disdain. This is why it is more important than ever to educate yourself on how to defend the faith, how to rationally and spiritually explain the
Christian belief to those who, out of ignorance, think that belief in God belongs to the past. Read The Culture War: How the West Lost its Greatness and get the tools. Remember that atheism is a faith like any other, the belief in “nothing” and the assortment that “the universe is empty.” None of them ever went out there to check, so how do they know there is no God, angels or devils out there? They assume based on faith. Atheism is a religion, they strongly believe that “God is dead” and mankind is the only source of light, which is impossible to prove empirically.

Kazakhstan Catholic Leaders Declare Divorced People ‘Living in Sin’ Asking for Holy Communion Is Blasphemy

Kazakhstan Catholic Leaders Declare Divorced People ‘Living in Sin’ Asking for Holy Communion Is Blasphemy
Roman Catholic Church leaders in Kazakhstan have declared that it would be “blasphemy” if divorced people living with someone else would “dare ask” for Holy Communion.  Auxiliary Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Astana told Catholic News Service in an article on Thursday that “divorced people living with someone else would not dare ask for Holy Communion because they know they are living in a situation of sin. It would be blasphemy.”
Other church leaders, including Archbishop Tomash Peta of Astana and Archbishop Jan Pawel Lenga of Karaganda, all signed a statement in December proclaiming “the immutable truths about sacramental marriage.” The three bishops said that neither they nor any other bishops can authorize Communion for Catholics who are divorced and remarried unless the previous marriage has been annulled.

Louisiana Says It’s OK to Live Your Faith in Public Schools

Louisiana Says It’s OK to Live Your Faith in Public Schools
Louisiana officials are making it clear that U.S. public schools do not need to be religion-free zones. On Tuesday, state Attorney General Jeff Landry and U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., released the Louisiana Students Rights Review, a 15-page guide that lays out the rights of teachers and students for practicing their faith in public schools. It’s a document that Landry suggests is long overdue. “Despite court ruling
after court ruling affirming our constitutional rights of freedom of speech and expression, there remains confusion on the practical application of those rights in public schools,” the attorney general said in a statement. “So Congressman Johnson and I have put this publication together to help answer some of the most frequently asked questions and misconceptions about the law in this area,” he said.

U.S. Muslim Population Growing Rapidly!
Pew Research Center came out this week with an updated estimate of the American Muslim population, which is sure to cause a stir on all sides of the issue. The new numbers come in at 3.45 million Muslims living legally in the U.S. in 2017. That represents only 1.1 percent of the U.S. population but it’s up, by Pew’s estimates, from 3.31 million in 2016. The U.S. Muslim population grows by about 100,000 every
year, according to the Pew study. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, says Pew’s estimates are way off, and that the true number is roughly double, in the 6 to 8 million range – and that was more than two years ago. “Muslim advocacy groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations routinely cite a span of 6 million to 8 million people in describing the size of Islam in America. That would be between 2 percent and 3 percent of the U.S. population and make Muslims greater in number than Mormons or Jews,” CAIR stated on its website in March 2015.”

Companies Warned To Replace All Computer Hardware Or Risk ‘Spectre’ Attack ..

Companies Warned To Replace All Computer Hardware Or Risk ‘Spectre’ Attack ..
Two major flaws in computer chips could leave a huge number of computers and smartphones vulnerable to security concerns, researchers revealed Wednesday. And a U.S. government-backed body warned that the chips themselves need to be replaced to completely fix the problems. The flaws could allow an attacker to read sensitive data stored in the memory, like passwords, or look at what tabs someone has open on their computer, researchers found. Daniel Gruss, a researcher from Graz
University of Technology who helped identify the flaw, said it may be difficult to execute an attack, but billions of devices were impacted. Called Meltdown and Spectre, the flaws exist in processors, a building block of computers that acts as the brain. Modern processors are designed to perform something called “speculative execution.” That means they predict what tasks they will be asked to execute and rapidly access multiple areas of memory at the same time.

Why You Won’t Want to Ignore These Scary Warning Signals

Why You Won’t Want to Ignore These Scary Warning Signals
(By Kimberly Taylor) When I was in my early 20s, I had an experience with my car that I never want to repeat. What I learned is relevant to protecting our health today. I was driving my old Toyota Corolla and a warning light came on. I didn’t think too much of it. I knew the light meant that my car needed oil, but I figured I would get to it later. About one month later, I noticed the warning light was still on. I thought to myself, “I really need to take care of that.”
I went to the store and bought the correct oil. I put it into the trunk, intending to pour it into the oil tank later. However, I promptly forgot about it. I continued to drive the car. The warning light stayed on. I didn’t realize then that the warning light represented mercy—an opportunity to make things right. Many months later, I was driving up the interstate after visiting my mother. The car seemed to handle as normal. But then, it made a loud knocking noise. Suddenly, smoke started billowing from under the hood.

US jets intercept Russian fighters in Europe…
The Air Force on Friday released a video showing two recent instances in which F-15s deployed to Šiauliai Air Base, Lithuania, intercepted Russian Navy Su-30 Flankers near the Baltics. The video compilation shows one encounter on Nov. 23 and another on Dec. 13. According to descriptions posted by the military, both incidents involved two Russian fighters in international airspace near the Baltics. In both encounters,
the F-15s were scrambled because the Russians did not broadcast the codes required by air traffic control, and did not file a flight plan, the Air Force said. The F-15s were from the 493rd Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, which belongs to the 48th Fighter Wing at RAF Lakenheath, and were participating in the NATO Baltic Air Policing mission, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa said. Those airmen and fighters were deployed to the Lithuanian base for about four months.

Israeli legislators approve bill making it more difficult to divide Jerusalem.

Israeli legislators approve bill making it more difficult to divide Jerusalem.
Israeli legislators have approved a bill that will now make it more difficult to divide Jerusalem. Israel Today reported that, in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday, and “following a succession of impassioned speeches both for and against,” the Knesset voted on and passed the United Jerusalem Bill, an amendment to the Jerusalem Law passed in 1980 when Israel officially declared the entirety of Jerusalem to be its undivided capital. This new legislation,
Israel Today reports, now “requires a two-thirds majority or 80 Knesset members (MKs) or more, to alter the status of Jerusalem or surrender portions of the Holy City as part of a future peace agreement.” Obtaining a two-thirds majority to pass any bill in the Israel Knesset is a difficult task. For this bill, 64 MKs voted in favor of the bill, 51 voted against with one abstention. “Just now we ensured that Jerusalem will be united forever,” the bill’s author, Israeli Education Minister Nafatali, told Israel Today.

CDC briefing to focus on preparing for nuclear war

CDC briefing to focus on preparing for nuclear war
The CDC wants the public to be prepared for nuclear war. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has posted a notice touting a Jan. 16 briefing about the work that federal, state and local governments are doing in case of a possible nuclear strike. “While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps,” the notice states. “Despite the fear surrounding such an event, planning and preparation can lessen deaths and illness.”
Presenters include Dan Sosin, CDC’s deputy director and chief medical officer in the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response, and experts on radiation safety and environmental hazards. The briefing comes amid rising tensions between the United States and North Korea. President Donald Trump earlier this week fired off a taunting tweet in which he bragged that his nuclear arsenal is more powerful than North Korea’s. The CDC notice preceded that message.

A Word to Preachers: Are You Ready for the Storm?

A Word to Preachers: Are You Ready for the Storm?
(By Bert Farias) A storm is coming. The torrential rains shall fall. The waters shall rise. The floods shall sweep away all wood, hay and stubble. The violent winds will blow away all that was built irresponsibly.  Are you building your house on the rock or on the sand?
“Whoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock. And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded a rock. And every one who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them will be likened to a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it fell. And its fall was great ” (Matt. 7:24-27).
“What sayings of Mine” is Jesus specifically referring to in these passages? Reading in context, Jesus began a lengthy teaching from Matthew 5-7 and the central theme of it seems to be the character of the heart of man—from the Beatitudes, to loving our enemies, to having the right motives in giving, praying and fasting. Then He goes on to teach them about the Father’s care for them and not worrying but seeking first the kingdom of God.

CA earthquake rattled 9.8 million people — Preview of something much worse
It was a sharp jolt but also a warning of something much more violent that could be coming. An estimated 9.8 million people felt a magnitude 4.4 earthquake that rumbled across the Bay Area early Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. It was felt throughout the region, with people more than 150 miles away reporting to the agency that they felt the shaking for perhaps five to 10 seconds. The epicenter of the earthquake is in the area of the Hayward fault,
one of the most feared in the Bay Area, which could produce a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake and is directly underneath heavily populated areas. The Hayward fault, along with the San Andreas fault on the San Francisco Peninsula, have long posed a twin seismic peril to the region. The San Andreas produced the devastating 1989 Loma Prieta quake and 1906 San Francisco quake.

Detroit on High Alert After Workers at 6 Restaurants Test Positive for Hepatitis…
The Detroit area is dealing with a significant Hepatitis A outbreak. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) reports 630 known cases in Southeast Michigan in 2017, twenty of them resulting in death. There were 150 cases diagnosed in the city of Detroit alone last year. Public health officials are especially troubled by the number of food handlers who have been infected with the disease. The Detroit Health Department has been sending out alerts, warning the public about restaurants with infected food handlers.
On October 30 they announced they were investigating two separate cases of Hepatitis A, one at the Firewater Bar and Grill and a second at a Little Caesars restaurant. “The Detroit Health Department is conducting a thorough investigation of both establishments to ensure appropriate food handing [sic] and cleaning protocols are being followed,” the alert said. “The Detroit Health Department has notified both establishments that infected employees are not to return to work until approved by their doctor.

Alaska Town Forgoes Funding Church Renovation After Atheist Group Complains
An Alaskan city council has reneged on a plan to give a historic local church funding to repair the outside of the building after the nation’s leading secularist group voiced a complaint. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation has claimed victory after the city assembly of Sitka voted 4 to 3 against a motion to give St. Michael’s Cathedral $5,000 from the municipality’s visitor’s enhancement fund to repair exterior damages to the church building.
“It’s a fundamental American principle that citizens may not be taxed to support a church,” FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor said in a statement after the vote. “We’re pleased that the majority of Sitka City Assembly members nixed this very bad idea.” Local radio station KCAW reports that the idea to donate $5,000 to the church, which is a key focal point in the town and is suffering from structural problems and a leaking roof, was proposed to the city assembly on Nov. 7 and spurred much debate surrounding the issue of separation of church and state.

Mount St. Helens Is Rumbling Again With 40 Earthquakes Since New Years Day

Mount St. Helens Is Rumbling Again With 40 Earthquakes Since New Years Day
Since New Years Day Mount St. Helens has experienced 40 earthquakes within its vicinity as tremors continue every few hours. The most powerful earthquake was a magnitude 3.9 that occurred around midnight west coast time about 5 miles from Mount St. Helens and 23 miles from the town of Morton. The 3.9 magnitude earthquake was felt in Portland but there were no reported injuries or damage. Since that earthquake there have been 16 more earthquakes, averaging about every half hour with magnitudes from 0.6 to 2.6.
It is common to experience swarms of earthquakes at Mount St. Helens. While it is certainly not a sign of an impending eruption, the earthquakes are a result of an active volcanic system. Mount St. Helens is most commonly known for its major eruption in 1980, the deadliest and most economically damaging volcanic event in the history of the United States. The stratovolcano is situated just 96 miles from Seattle and 50 miles from Portland, making an eruption especially dangerous.

DEVELOPING: Life-threatening Tropical Cyclone “Ava” to hit Madagascar
A tropical cyclone designated 03S, named Ava at 09:00 UTC, January 3, has formed east of Madagascar and is currently affecting Reunion, Mauritius and especially northern Madagascar where heavy rain is already causing problems. This system is expected to continue organizing and gaining strength until it makes landfall early Friday, January 5, 2018 (UTC) along the northeastern coast of Madagascar. Be ready for strong winds, dangerous storm surge, heavy rain, flooding and landslides. Ava is the first
named cyclone of the 2017-18 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season. It comes unusually late in a season which runs November 15 through April 30/May 15. Showers produced by TC03S, now Ava, started across northern Madagascar late Tuesday, January 2 and intensified overnight Wednesday, reaching close to and over 200 mm (7.8 inches) in some places by Wednesday morning. Reunion and Mauritius saw first drops of rain around 09:00 UTC Tuesday and accumulated close to 100 mm (3.9 inches) in places over the next 24 hours.

French President Macron proposes new law against ‘fake news’…
French President Emmanuel Macron says he will introduce a new law against the spread of “fake news” in the lead up to elections. Macron made the announcement during a New Year’s address to the press corps at the Elysee Palace in Paris. “I have decided that we will change our legal system to protect democratic life from this fake news,” Macron said on Wednesday evening. “During the election period,
on the internet, content will no longer have exactly the same rules,” he added. The proposed legislation will also change the role of French media watchdog CSA, Macron said. Macron has been highly critical of Russian media in particular, openly accusing TV channel RT of sowing disinformation about him via its website and social media during the 2017 French presidential election.

Alabama Church Transforms Building Into Warming Center for the Homeless and Their Pets
The majority of the continental U.S. is experiencing temperatures even more frigid than usual, and those most vulnerable to the cold are people without homes. The cold is even affecting states in the South, prompting one church in Alabama to find a creative way to combat homelessness amid dangerously low temperatures. The Grateful Life Community Church in Huntsville has transformed its building into a
warming center, providing unconventional resources to the homeless such as haircuts and medicine as well as food, warm clothes, and somewhere safe to sleep. “We welcome all of God’s children; all races, religions, orientations, and gender identities are welcome to join us,” according to a GoFundMe campaign set up by the church.

Mennonite Church USA’s Largest Conference Leaves Denomination Over Homosexuality
The largest Mennonite conference in the United States has officially split from the Mennonite Church U.S.A. over changing views on homosexuality. The Lancaster Mennonite Conference, which has over 179 congregations across New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio and over 70,000 members, officially left the denomination on Monday after about 82 percent of voting congregational leaders chose in November 2015 to take such an action.
The shifting leniency of the Mennonite Church USA, an Anabaptist denomination, toward same-sex marriage was one of the reasons why the conference felt the need to split. Conference Moderator L. Keith Weaver told Lancaster Online that church polity, vision and governance were other reasons for the change. Churches within the Lancaster Mennonite Conference were given two years to decide whether or not they wish to remain in the conference.

Why This Atheist Could No Longer Deny the Existence of God
In the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle, you might have missed a pretty incredible tweet from skeptical journalist-turned Christian apologist Lee Strobel—a message that briefly breaks down his take on the improbability of atheism. Strobel’s simple message truly resonated, too, as it was sent just before
Americans planned to celebrate Jesus’ birth, with scores of people responding to his breakdown of what non-belief truly entails. “To continue in atheism, I would need to believe that nothing produces everything, non-life produces life, randomness produces fine-tuning, chaos produces information.

Palestinian Official Fires Back at Trump Tweet: ‘We Will Not Be Blackmailed’
Palestinian officials responded to President Donald Trump’s tweet threatening to defund the Palestinian Authority by saying they would not be blackmailed and that Jerusalem was not for sale. Meanwhile, Israeli officials said Trump had pulled off the P.A.’s “mask of hypocrisy.” In a pair of tweets, Trump said on Tuesday that “we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect.
They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue… peace treaty with Israel.” He added that, “with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?” In response to Trump’s tweet, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ office said Jerusalem is “not for sale,” according to a tweet from the AFP.

Cancer patient ‘halts disease with TURMERIC’…First recorded case of its kind
A woman who battled blood cancer for years without success finally halted the disease with turmeric, it has been reported. Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on grueling treatments that failed to stop it. Doctors say her case is the first recorded instance in which a patient has recovered by using the spice after stopping conventional medical treatments. With her myeloma spreading rapidly
after three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin a day – one of the main compounds in turmeric. The cancer, which has an average survival of just over five years, was causing increasing back pain and she had already had a second relapse. But it stabilized after Mrs Ferguson, from north London, came across the remedy on the internet in 2011 and decided to try it as a last resort.

America’s Power Grid Showing Signs of Strain During Brutal Cold
America’s power grid is starting to show signs of fatigue as the nation grapples with a record-breaking cold snap. Some power plants in New England that have been burning oil are running short on fuel, according to Marcia Blomberg, a spokeswoman for ISO New England Inc., the region’s grid operator. Restrictions governing air emissions are also a factor limiting their use.
“As oil inventories are depleted, replenishment of these fuels will be important given the uncertainty around weather and future fuel demands for the remaining two months of the winter period,” she said by email on Tuesday. Oil, a scant contributor to the nation’s power supply in normal weather conditions, has accounted for about 30 percent of New England’s electricity in recent days after temperatures plunged below freezing. A lack of pipeline capacity has constrained natural gas supplies to the region in recent years, causing prices to surge during severe cold snaps.

Evangelical North Park University Suspends Campus Pastor After Officiating Gay Marriage
North Park University, founded by the Evangelical Covenant Church in Chicago, Illinois, suspended its campus pastor Tuesday after she decided to officiate a same-sex wedding. “Campus Pastor Judy Peterson, having had her ordination credential suspended by the denomination for non-compliance of an instruction of the ordered ministry, will enter the new year on paid sabbatical leave from her role as
campus pastor,” a statement by NPU read last week. Peterson went against Evangelical Covenant Church doctrine that states marriage is solely a union between one man and one woman by deciding to officiate a wedding between two gay men. Her future will now be decided at a meeting with the ECC’s Board of Ordered Ministry later in January. “North Park University welcomes conversations around the topics over which there are differences of viewpoint.

Frozen Iguanas Falling From Trees In Florida
It’s so cold in Florida that iguanas are falling from their perches in suburban trees. The National Weather Service in Miami said temperatures dipped below 40 degrees Fahrenheit early Thursday in parts of South Florida. That’s chilly enough to immobilize green iguanas common in Miami’s suburbs. Members of media outlets tweeted photos of the event,
including an iguana lying belly-up next to one writer’s swimming pool. The cold-blooded creatures native to Central and South America start to get sluggish when temperatures fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, said Kristen Sommers, who oversees the nonnative fish and wildlife program for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Facebook Temporarily Removed ‘Warriors for Christ’ Facebook Page
Facebook temporarily shut down the page “Warriors for Christ.” Why? The official corporate line is that the page violated the social media giant’s community standards. But the Christ fighters have a few other thoughts — namely, that Facebook is simply showing its pro-LGBT, anti-Christian bias. This, from the page administrator, Nellchy Kentley, in a letter to Pamela Geller: “On 29th December 2017, Facebook shut down our page because of our biblical stance on marriage.
Facebook has been after our page for many years and often censored our posts simply because they contained truth articles on statistics, Bible verses and memes that exposed the hypocrisy of the left.” Following a petition drive, and pressure from the public — including the page’s 225,000 or so followers — Facebook reinstated the page. But what’s up with a prayer page that makes it so hated by Facebook censors?

Progressive Christianity Is As Much Of A Threat To Your Kids’ Faith As Atheism

Progressive Christianity Is As Much Of A Threat To Your Kids’ Faith As Atheism
(By PNW) In our backyard we used to have a beautiful lime tree. One day I noticed that a thorny vine of some kind had started growing around it. It looked enough like the rest of the tree that I figured it was just another stage of growth. A quick Google search told me thorns often grow around citrus trees, so I didn’t think much more about it. Then, within a couple of months, the thorns took over the tree and it began to die. A gardener looked at it and said these particular thorns weren’t part of the tree at all. It turns out they were a foreign invader.
Had the foreign invader looked more foreign, I would have realized the need to uproot it immediately. But because it shared surface-level similarities with the tree, I was fooled into thinking it was all the same thing. I often write here about the threat hostile atheists pose to kids’ faith today. But atheism is not the only threat. In fact, there’s a particular threat that can be even more dangerous because it less obviously requires attention. It’s like the thorny plant that gradually killed my lime tree because I didn’t even realize it was foreign.

PROPHECY WATCH: Visits by religious Jews to Temple Mount increased by 75% in 2017
The number of visits by religious Jews to the Temple Mount has increased by 75% in 2017, compared to 2016, according to the Yera’eh organization, which encourages Jewish ascent to the Temple Mount. In the past year, there have been 25,628 religious Jews’ visits to the Temple Mount, compared with 14,626 last year, 11,001 visits in 2015, 11,754 in 2014, and only 5,658 visits by religious Jews in 2009.
Religious Jews are counted separately from the other visitors and are not allowed to enter the Temple Mount compound without a police escort. Assaf Fried, spokesman for the Temple Organizations Headquarters, who promote Jewish ascent to the Temple Mount, attributes the increase in visits to the fact that, other than one attack on the Temple Mount in July, 2017, in which two Border Police officers were killed by Israeli Arabs, security in Jerusalem and on the Temple Mount is perceived by the Israeli public as being relatively calm

Pakistan promises ‘cold-blooded’ response to Trump’s abrupt aid cut
Islamabad has warned Donald Trump against endangering US-Pakistani cooperation in Afghanistan, promising a “cold-blooded” response to Washington’s aid cut. The US carried out some 60,000 attacks from Pakistani soil, it said. In a seething series of tweets, Pakistan’s foreign minister ripped into Trump’s accusation that Islamabad has double-crossed the US in Afghanistan, noting that Pakistan
“went through a bloodbath” after “blindly” trusting Washington. “You ask what we’ve done? From our bases you carried out 57,800 attacks on Afghanistan… thousands of our civilians and soldiers became victims of the war initiated by you,” Pakistan’s foreign minister Khawaja Asif wrote. Citing Pakistan’s “unending saga of sacrifices” in the fight against terrorism, Asif wrote that “history teaches us not to blindly trust the US… [we] will not compromise our dignity anymore.”

Couple Told They Should Abort Child With Fatal Condition Returns to Same Hospital 3 Years Later With Their Healthy Little Girl
A young couple who were once encouraged by doctors to abort their little baby girl due to her “fatal” heart condition has returned to the same hospital with their bouncing, healthy child. Back when their unborn daughter, Amnesty, was developing in the womb, married couple Dusty and Krystal Marshall were told she required urgent surgery to repair her spine. But, when they made it to the medical center for the operation, they were further informed that their baby girl did not qualify for the surgery on
account of a heart defect that she had developed. “Because she had a heart issue, spinal bifida and a clubbed foot, it was possible that she had a chromosomal defect. That really brought up the concern for maybe having an abortion,” Krystal explained in a new video. But the couple decided to reject the medical advice, accept the risks, grab hold of their faith and choose life for their baby. They were so impressed by the staff at Children’s Hospital Colorado that they chose to move their entire family out there to go ahead with the pregnancy.

DEVELOPING: Massive Flooding Wreaking Havoc Along Massachusetts Coast
Reports of major flooding are pouring in from coastal Massachusetts communities on Thursday afternoon. Multiple cars were reportedly stuck in flood waters along Newport Avenue Extension in Quincy ahead of high tide. Rescues are now in progress. Flooding was also reported in the Squantum neighborhood, with water into houses. A shelter is being set up at Quincy High School. On Dyke Street in Marshfield, a mother and two children had to be rescued while firefighters made three other single
vehicle rescues on other nearby roads. Newburyport police said a few people are being evacuated on Plum Island due to flooding. Several streets in the city are also closed due to high water. Parts of Causeway Street, Morrissey Boulevard and Seaport Boulevard in Boston were underwater too, and the harborside entrance at the MBTA’s Aquarium Station is temporarily closed due to flooding.

Popular sugar additive fueling spread of superbugs…
Two bacterial strains that have plagued hospitals around the country may have been at least partly fueled by a sugar additive in our food products, scientists say. Trehalose, a sugar that is added to a wide range of food products, could have allowed certain strains of Clostridium difficile to become far more virulent than they were before, a new study finds. The results, described in the journal Nature, highlight
the unintended consequences of introducing otherwise harmless additives to the food supply. C. difficile is a nasty bacterium — infection can result in severe diarrhea and death — and numbers among the most prevalent hospital-acquired infections in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half a million people were sickened by the bug in 2011. Some 29,000 of those patients died within 30 days of being diagnosed with C. difficile, and about 15,000 of those deaths were directly linked to the infection.

Nissan unveils technology that can interpret signals from drivers’ brains
Nissan claims to have developed a car that can read its driver’s mind. Software adapted from the medical profession is translating a driver’s thoughts into action to improve vehicle responsiveness. The technology will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week. The software monitors brain wave activity to anticipate intended movement, be that turning the steering wheel or
hitting the brakes. Nissan says the system can react between 0.2-0.5 second faster than the driver without being considered intrusive. The B2V technology is meant to make driving more enjoyable in a semi-autonomous world by speeding up reaction times and having vehicles that constantly adapt to their owner’s driving style. Nissan vice-president Daniele Schillaci says the software takes connectivity to the next level.

City threatens to condemn man’s home — for sheltering homeless during cold!
A suburban Chicago resident who was offering up “slumber parties” in his basement for homeless people in his neighborhood during dangerously cold weather says city officials have given him an ultimatum. Stop the “slumber parties” or the house will be condemned. Greg Schiller, of Elgin, said he began letting a group of homeless people sleep in his unfinished basement last month during brutally cold nights,
offering them food, warm beverages and a cot to sleep on while watching movies. “I would stay up all night with them and give them coffee and stuff and feed them,” he said, adding that no drugs or alcohol were allowed inside his residence during the evening events. Last winter, Schiller offered up his garage to area homeless, but said he was told he could no longer do so after EMTs were called to help a man with a heart condition. That’s when he had the idea to move them to his basement –

4.4 Earthquake rattles most dangerous fault in California
California has been struck by a powerful earthquake on a dangerous fault line experts believe could unleash a dreaded “big one” as soon as tomorrow. California has today been rocked by a 4.4 magnitude earthquake in the Bay Area of Berkley shortly after 3am local time (11am GMT). The “terrifying” tremor has left millions across the state fearing an imminent “Big One” earthquake measuring magnitude 7 or greater on the Richter Scale.
The US state has not been struck by a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake since a colossal rupture in the San Andreas Fault laid waste to San Francisco in 1906. The massive magnitude 7.8 earthquake reduced buildings to rubble in less than a minute, killing around 7,500 people and destroying 80% of the city. Experts believe there is a 70% chance a tremor on a similar scale will strike the Bay Area of San Francisco within the next 30 years.

Israel Busts Hamas Terror Cell in Judea and Samaria

Israel Busts Hamas Terror Cell in Judea and Samaria
Israel’s combined security services nabbed a 17-man Palestinian terror cell in November that was working to execute terror attacks in Judea and Samaria, with guidance from Hamas in Gaza. The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) revealed Monday that the main figure behind the elaborate terror plot is Abdallah Arar, a terrorist who was involved in the kidnapping and murder of Sasson Nureil in 2005.
Arar was captured by Israel and was subsequently released in the 2011 prisoner exchange with Hamas, during which Israel released some 1,000 Palestinian terrorists in exchange for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Arar has since returned to terrorism. Arar is suspected of ordering Ala Salim, a resident of Jabba in the Binyamin region, to establish a terror cell and acquire an M16 assault rifle for the purpose of carrying out terror attacks. Arar gave Salim funds for this purpose.

DEVELOPING: Deadly Bone-Chilling Cold Grips Wide Swath of USA…
Bitterly cold temperatures gripped much of the nation on Tuesday, testing the mettle of even winter-wise northerners and delivering a shock to those accustomed to far milder weather in the South. The cold has been blamed for at least a dozen deaths, prompted officials to open warming centers in the Deep South and triggering pleas from government officials to check on neighbors, especially those who are elderly, sick or who live alone. In St. Louis, where the temperature dipped 30 degrees below normal,
Mayor Lyda Krewson warned it was “dangerously cold.” “It’s important that people look out for anyone in need of shelter,” she said. The National Weather Service issued wind chill advisories and freeze warnings covering a vast area, from South Texas to Canada and from Montana through Maine. The arctic blast was blamed for freezing a water tower in Iowa, halting a ferry service in New York and even trapping a swan in a Virginia pond.

Scientists Find Alzheimer’s Treatment While Trying To Cure Diabetes
Although their goal was to cure diabetes, scientists may have stumbled onto a new medication to help treat the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease. According to a press release from researchers at Lancaster University, a new drug being tested for diabetes patients was found to have “significantly reversed memory loss” in test subjects and is now being examined as a possible treatment for neurodegenerative disorders.
The medication, known as a triple receptor drug — or “triple agonist” — reportedly works in multiple ways to protect the brain against degeneration and promote growth. Researchers say that a study of mice being given the drug found that the animals had an increased ability to learn and retain memories. “These very promising outcomes demonstrate the efficacy of these novel multiple receptor drugs that originally were developed to treat type 2 diabetes,” Professor Christian Holscher said in the release.

Trump threatens to cut off aid to Palestinian Authority…
Acknowledging his push to broker peace in the Middle East has stalled, President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to threaten to cut off U.S. aid money to the Palestinian Authority, saying they were no longer willing to negotiate. Trump, in a pair of tweets, said the U.S. pays “the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue … peace treaty with Israel.”
“We have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table, but Israel, for that, would have had to pay more. But with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?” he wrote. Trump infuriated many in the Middle East when he announced late last year that the U.S. would consider Jerusalem the capital of Israel and move its embassy there.

Experts warn that powerful earthquakes will strike the Earth in 2018 as planet’s rotation temporarily slows
The world is entering a period of higher seismic activity this year that will bring more earthquakes with it, scientists have predicted. While that’s undoubtedly bad news for those living within affected areas, the ability to accurately predict when and where earthquakes will occur is growing all the time. This
prediction comes from the fact that the Earth is currently experiencing a periodic slowdown of its rotation. Historically, these slowdowns have coincided with peak times for earthquakes and seismic activity. “So far we have only had about six severe earthquakes [in 2017]. We could easily have 20-a-year starting in 2018,” said Dr Roger Bilham from the University of Colorado. READ MORE http://www.mirror.co.uk/science/powerful-earthquakes-ravage-earth-2018-11785189

Scientists Warns Earth Approaching Mini Ice Age
An Ice Age is potentially coming and scientists have claimed it could reverse damage from global warming. Earth could be plunged into a mini Ice Age in the next few decades, but there is good news – it could override the damage done by global warming. By 2030 comes about, the temperatures on Earth could be so low that the River Thames freezes over during winter, much like in the last little ice age which spanned from the 13th to 17th century.
Maths professor Valentina Zharkova at Northumbria University said the Ice Age could help offset the damage of global warming. She said: “I hope global warming will be overridden by this effect, giving humankind and the Earth 30 years to sort out our pollution.” The sun follows cycles of roughly 11 years where it reaches a solar maximum and then a solar minimum. During the former, the Sun gives off more heat, and less in the latter due to a decrease in magnetic waves.

Very bright slow-moving fireball over the United Kingdom, Over 800 reports
A very large, slow-moving fireball meteor was observed over the United Kingdom at 17:33 UTC on December 31, 2017. The International Meteor Organization (IMO) received over 400 reports within 2 hours and the count now stands at 801. The event was as seen from northern Scotland to southern England, UK. The object was green and red in color and was traveling east to west from the North Sea toward Sunderland and Carlisle for more than 10 seconds. 11 people reported delayed sound associated
with the event, 11 a concurrent sound and 255 reported fragmentation. “The object fragmented in smaller parts at the end of its luminous path, before vanishing,” IMO’s Karl Antier said. “Rough automatic analysis of the reports received until now show the meteor started being luminous 80 km (50 miles) offshore Hartlepool, and traveled from east to the west to disappear 100 km (62 miles) onshore and 20 km (12 miles) South of England/Scotland border, halfway between Penrith and Carlisle (Cumbrie county).

At least one person has been killed and 65,000 customers left without power in the third and strongest storm to hit France this winter. The fourth named storm – Eleanor – is expected to hit the country with strength comparable to Carmen today and tomorrow. Orange Alerts are in effect across 21 departments today and tomorrow. There was no major damage reported by Monday afternoon, according to local media reports.
However, French power grid company Enedis said some 65,000 of its customers in Brittany, Pays-de-la-Loire, and Nouvelle-Aquitaine in the country’s west were left without power. According to RFI, one man was killed when a tree hit his car in Saint-Jean-de-Port in French Basque Country. With Carmen now away, Meteo France placed 21 departments on Orange Alert as the country braces for yet another strong storm – Eleanor. In addition, the Finistere coastline is on alert for particularly intense waves which may breach beach walls and other coastline barriers, and cause flooding.

Planned Parenthood Announces ‘My Body, My Choice’ License Plates to Counter ‘Choose Life’ Plates
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland has announced that its proposed “My Body, My Choice” license plates are now available for purchase by Nebraska residents after it submitted more than the 250 applications required by the state to request the production of certain specialty plates. The plates, which include the Planned Parenthood logo, are posted on the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles website among other specialty plates and cost $70.
Planned Parenthood issued a statement on Dec. 28 in which it said it was “proudly” unveiling the new plates. “‘My Body, My Choice’ license plates are an opportunity for Nebraskans to voice their own opinion on issues of women’s health—opinions that don’t necessarily reflect the opinion of the governor, lieutenant governor and some senators,” said Meg Mikolajczyk, associate general counsel and senior public affairs manager.

UNESCO Produces Lion Idol, Consort of Goddess of Adultery

UNESCO Produces Lion Idol, Consort of Goddess of Adultery
A UNESCO funded project reproduced a statue of a lion, the third project of its kind the organization has supported, leading at least one rabbi to conclude that the real goal of the political organization is to promote an agenda that has always stood as Israel’s nemesis: idolatry. The Lion of al-Lāt is an ancient statue, almost 11 feet tall and weighing 15 tons, which stood in the temple of pre-Islamic goddess al-Lāt in Palmyra, Syria. In June 2015 the statue was severely damaged, along with many other artifacts at the historic site,
by the Islamic State (ISIS) after it captured Palmyra. The statue was eventually removed to the National Museum of Damascus where it underwent reconstruction. Part of the reconstruction of the lion statue was performed using high-intensity laser projection equipment adapted for large-scale 3-D printing in stone by the Institute for Digital Archaeology (IDA) in Oxford. Much of the Lion project was underwritten by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) through its Heritage Emergency Fund and by the European Union.

How the Signs in the Sky Confirm Scripture’s End-Times Roadmap

How the Signs in the Sky Confirm Scripture’s End-Times Roadmap
(By Ron Allen) The New Year is a good time for most of us to look ahead. The stars of the zodiacal constellation Aries (The Ram), which are visible overhead in the evening, give a useful roadmap to the future. Aries itself is a picture of a slain lamb, as attested by the name of its two distinctive stars El Nath (Wounded) and Sheratan (Bruised). However, this is not a picture of defeat, but of victory. This is the Lamb of Revelation 6, found worthy to open the seals of the future. Aries represents the promised victory of Christ. The defeated enemies of Christ are shown in the constellations Cetus (The Sea Monster) and Perseus (The Breaker).
Cetus is a picture of the seven-headed beast of Revelation 13 and 17, representing the nations which have fought against God. The feet of Cetus are in the constellation Eridanus (The River of Fire), a fate promised to God’s enemies in Revelation 21. The future of the leaders of the national rebellion against God and the Anti-Christ himself is shown in the constellation Perseus (The Breaker). Perseus is pictured as a man, symbolic of Christ, carrying the severed head of the evil one, as represented by the star Algol (Evil Spirit). As God has promised to destroy His enemies, so He has promised to restore His chosen people Israel. The nation has suffered much for its rejection of Christ, as pictured in the constellation Andromeda (The Chained Woman).

South Korea seizes second ship suspected of illegally bringing oil to North Korea
South Korea has seized Another ship suspected of transferring oil to North Korea in violation of international sanctions. The seizure was the second to be revealed by South Korea within a few days. A South Korean customs official said The Panama-flagged tanker, KOTI, was seized at Pyeongtaek-Dangjin port, on the west coast. A marine official said the seizure had happened recently. A foreign ministry spokesman confirmed that an investigation was underway.
He said: “The government has been in close consultations with related countries and ministries to thoroughly implement the sanctions by the UN security council.” On Thursday, China blocked a U.S. effort at the United Nations to blacklist six foreign-flagged ships, a U.N. Security Council diplomat said. China’s Foreign Ministry, responding to a question from Reuters on the blocking, said Beijing always fully and strictly implemented Security Council resolutions.

Hospitals put on alert over ‘worst flu outbreak’ in 50 years
Hospitals are bracing themselves for the worst flu epidemic in 50 years with news that the strain sweeping the UK has claimed lives in Ireland. One expert warned this could be the worst winter since the Hong Kong flu epidemic of 1968. Though the number of flu-related deaths in Ireland is under 10, 73 people have been treated in hospital and Irish health experts are urging people to get vaccinated.
UK Government statistics show that 1,111 people were struck down with flu last week – a 156 percent jump on the previous seven days. The sharp rise has been triggered by the unusual case of two aggressive subtypes attacking the population in tandem, according to data from Public Health England. Usually just one subtype, either influenza A or B, attacks during the flu season. But this year Britain has been hit by so-called “Aussie flu” a strain of influenza A which wreaked havoc on hospitals in Australia during their winter.

US gives Israel go-ahead to take out powerful Iranian general

US gives Israel go-ahead to take out powerful Iranian general
US intelligence agencies have given Israel the green light to assassinate the senior Iranian responsible for coordinating military activity on behalf of the Islamic Republic in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida. For the past 20 years or so, Qassem Soleimani has commanded the Quds Force — the branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards responsible for military and clandestine operations outside of the Islamic Republic.
Soleimani is a key figure in efforts to prop up Syrian President Bashar Assad and to enable him to retake cities and towns from rebel groups during his country’s ongoing civil war. He is also responsible for providing military aid to the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah and the Palestinian Hamas in Gaza — both of which are committed to the destruction of Israel — as well as to Shia and Kurdish groups in Iraq. Thursday’s report by al-Jarida, which has been known to publish improbable-sounding stories about Israel, was widely picked up by Israeli media.

United States withholds millions from Pakistan…
The Trump administration has decided to withhold millions in military aid to Pakistan as the president accuses the Muslim-majority nation of harboring terrorists and telling “lies” to the United States. “The United States does not plan to spend the $255 million in [Fiscal Year] 2016 Foreign Military Financing for Pakistan at this time,” a National Security Council official told Fox News on Monday.
The official added, “The president has made clear that the United States expects Pakistan to take decisive action against terrorists and militants on its soil, and that Pakistan’s actions in support of the South Asia Strategy will ultimately determine the trajectory of our relationship, including future security assistance.” The Trump administration will continue to “review Pakistan’s level of cooperation,” the official said.

California Goes To Pot …
Before sunrise on New Year’s Day, cashiers welcomed the first legal sales of recreational marijuana in California, launching a new industry expected to bring in billions of dollars while accepting new regulations and taxes. The day has been long anticipated by cannabis advocates who pushed for voters to pass Proposition 64 in November 2016, largely decriminalizing marijuana and allowing —
starting Monday — for the commercial sale of products to adults 21 or older. In Berkeley, Mayor Jesse Arreguin and Democratic state Sen. Nancy Skinner joined a couple dozen people outside the Berkeley Patients Group for the first sales. “I’m stoked about this historic moment not just for Berkeley but for the state of California,” Arreguin said. “This is a long time coming.”

CUP OF TREMBLING: Top 10 Most Insane Anti-Israel Actions Of The United Nations In 2017
If you ever needed more evidence that the warnings of Zechariah the Prophet are evident in our lifetime, just look at the past year of 2017. Last year the UN General Assembly adopted 20 resolutions against Israel and six on the rest of the world, including all rogue, terror-supporting regimes. In this video,
Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, presents 10 of the most heinous among them. There were countless other anti-Israel reports and statements produced in 2017 by UN agencies and officials, he says, but here are the ones he chose as the most “insane.” It’s time to hold the UN accountable!

Israeli archaeologists find 2,700-year-old ‘governor of Jerusalem’ seal impression
Israeli archaeologists unveiled on Monday a 2,700-year-old clay seal impression which they said belonged to a biblical governor of Jerusalem. The artifact, inscribed in an ancient Hebrew script as “belonging to the governor of the city”, was likely attached to a shipment or sent as a souvenir on behalf of the governor, the most prominent local position held in Jerusalem at the time, the Israel Antiquities Authority said.

The impression, the size of a small coin, depicts two standing men, facing each other in a mirror-like manner and wearing striped garments reaching down to their knees. It was unearthed near the plaza of Judaism’s Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. “It supports the Biblical rendering of the existence of a governor of the city in Jerusalem 2,700 years ago,” an Antiquities Authority statement quoted excavator Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah as saying.

Five Scriptures to Super Charge Your New Year
Jan 1, 2018 | 0 |
Five Scriptures to Super Charge Your New Year
Perhaps our greatest need in the New Year is to get into God’s Word. This past year, many people have shared their opinions, but now God wants to speak. Finance, fitness, and food goals are important, but no goal is more important than sitting before God with an open Bible and a humble, teachable heart. This is the posture a Christian is to assume their entire life. Salvation may happen in a single moment of belief, but learning to live as a Christian and fully follow Jesus is the adventure of a lifetime.
We continually learn to follow Jesus through His Word, the Bible. RA Torrey, a close associate of DL Moody, once said (emphasis added): Christians who pray for power but neglect the Bible abound in the Church. But the power that belongs to God is stored up in the great reservoir of His own Word, the Bible. DL Moody himself had much to say about the Bible, and was always pointing his hearers back to the Word:

How to Raise a Pagan Kid in a Christian Home
Jan 1, 2018 | 0 |

How to Raise a Pagan Kid in a Christian Home
(By Barrett Johnson) Every imperfect and normal family wants their kids to turn out right. So, we establish goals for character development and try to create an environment where our kids can mature. Church, school, sports teams, family relationships … each of these provides a context where our kids can learn to “love your neighbor as yourself.” Unfortunately, our “good” objectives might have absolutely nothing to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ. And we inadvertently end up raising pagans instead of Christians. Too many times, (Christian) parents have it as their goal to make their kids good and moral.
It is as if the entire purpose of their family’s spiritual life is to shape their children into law-abiding citizens who stay out of trouble. The only problem with this goal is that it runs in stark contrast to what the Bible teaches. The gospel is not about making bad people moral, but about making dead people alive. If we teach morality without the transforming power of the gospel and the necessity of a life fully surrendered to God’s will, we are raising moral pagans. We end up teaching the wrong thing because we have the wrong objectives.

DEVELOPING: Once in 100 Year Cold Snap Sweeping Central and Northeast US
Cold air rivaling that of the past 100 years for late December and early January will make it painful to be outdoors and may lead to damage in the central and the northeastern United States.  AccuWeather RealFeel®️ Temperatures are projected to be below zero over much of the Northeast and well below zero in much of the Midwest. In the coming days, RealFeel temperatures 5 to 20 degrees below zero will be common. in the northern tier, RealFeel temperatures may dip as low as 30 to 40 degrees below zero.
Most low-temperature records from the northern and central Plains to the mid-Atlantic and New England are likely to remain intact. However, in terms of the level of cold, actual temperatures in many locations will be in the lower 5 percentile for all years on record for late December and early January, according to the National Weather Service. Standout years for record cold in the Northeast at this point in the season were in 1880-81 and 1917-18. In the Midwest, the years 1967-68 and 1973-74 left a mark with subzero F cold.

Man found with small arsenal on top floor of Hyatt Regency downtown Houston
A man has been arrested on multiple charges after police located a small arsenal of guns on the top floor of the Hyatt Regency on Louisiana Street downtown, Houston police said. Police at the hotel called for backup around 1:30 a.m. Sunday after they attempted to arrest the man for being intoxicated and trespassing. When help arrived, police noticed ammunition laying around the man’s hotel room, Lt. Gordon Macintosh with Houston police said.
The man was arrested for unlawfully carrying a weapon and trespassing. When investigators looked into his room further, they located an AR-15, a shotgun, a handgun and lots of ammunition, Macintosh said. The Hyatt is preparing its own New Years Eve celebration at the hotel with a 50,000 balloon drop at the stroke of midnight, its website said.

Trump White House Sends Congratulatory Letter to Kenneth Copeland for ’50 Years of Ministry’
ATTENTION: The following is a report from The Christian News Network
Prosperity and Word of Faith preacher Kenneth Copeland posted a photo to social media on Tuesday of a letter that he received from President Trump congratulating him for “50 years of ministry.” “Melania and I send our warmest wishes as you celebrate 50 years of ministry,” began the letter, which was dated Aug. 16 but just shared this week. “For half a century, you have devoted your life to faith and humanity. Your enduring commitment to spreading the word of God has influenced the lives of people across the United States and around the world.”
“We hope your heart is filled with joy, knowing your efforts to spread a message of hope are an inspiration to people who seek the love and mercy of the Lord,” it continued. “Congratulations on this remarkable achievement.” Copeland’s staff thanked Trump for the recognition, writing, “Thank you President @DonaldTrump for officially recognizing Kenneth Copeland Ministries for 50 years in ministry!”

US and Israel sign secret pact to tackle Iran nuclear and missile threat
Israel and the United States have secretly signed a far-reaching joint memorandum of understanding providing for full cooperation to deal with Iran’s nuclear drive, its missile programs and its other threatening activities, an Israeli TV report said.  The document was signed on December 12 at the White House, culminating intensive talks between representatives of the major Israeli and American
intelligence and defense hierarchies, headed by the US and Israeli national security advisers, H. R. McMaster and Meir Ben-Shabbat, respectively, the Channel 10 report said Thursday. Citing both American and Israeli officials, the report said the document is designed to translate into “steps on the ground” the positions set out by US President Donald Trump in his October 13 speech on Iran, in which he decertified the Iran nuclear deal.

Venezuela oil-backed cryptocurrency to launch in days
Venezuela’s cryptocurrency will launch within days and be backed by 5.3 billion barrels of oil worth $267 billion, in a bid to offset a deep financial crisis, the socialist government said on Thursday. President Nicolas Maduro surprised many earlier this month when he announced the “petro” cryptocurrency, to be backed by OPEC member Venezuela’s oil, gas, gold and diamond reserves. Despite the skepticism of cryptocurrency experts who do not think Venezuela has the wherewithal to pull it off,
communications minister Jorge Rodriguez said the first petro offering would come within days. “Camp one of the Ayacucho block will form the initial backing of this cryptocurrency,” Rodriguez told reporters, referring to part of Venezuela’s southern Orinoco Belt. “It contains 5.342 billion certified barrels of oil. We’re talking about backing of $267 billion,” said Rodriguez, adding that that differentiated the petro from other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

New York Tightens Security for Times Square, Snipers and Bomb Sniffers
To protect about 1 million revelers in a city still shaken by a botched pipe bombing this month and a deadly vehicle attack on Halloween, the NYPD is promising to step up patrols, canine teams and heavy-weapons squads.  The old concrete barriers are back too, along with sand trucks to block vehicles. But the NYPD is putting special focus on aerial security, with spotters on buildings and — for the first time —
officers stationed in every hotel along 7th Avenue to react in the event of a sniper-style attack. Three months after Las Vegas suffered the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the city’s New Year’s Eve party has been designated a “SEAR 1” security event by the Department of Homeland Security. That’s a designation typically reserved for political conventions and the Super Bowl.

First supermoon of 2018 coincides with New Year’s Day

First supermoon of 2018 coincides with New Year’s Day
There will be more than just fireworks lighting up the night sky this New Years.  According to NASA, January’s first full moon — nicknamed a wolf moon — will take place on January 1 and it will be a supermoon. It’ll be the first of 2018 and it will be closely followed by another just weeks later. In case you don’t remember, a “supermoon” occurs when the moon appears bigger and brighter in the sky. A supermoon occurs when the moon becomes full on the same day that it reaches its perigree, the point in
the moon’s elliptical orbit when it is closest to Earth. During these events, the moon generally appears to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than a typical full moon. They typically occur around every 13 months, according to NASA. But if you miss the supermoon on New Year’s Day, don’t worry. The big event is coming on January 31, when another supermoon is set to light up the sky — making it, as some have pointed out, a “blue supermoon.”

Spain struck by trio of earthquakes in popular tourist hotspots within hours
Spain has been hit by three earthquakes in two popular tourist destinations within just hours of each other.  The tremors struck Andalusia – two in the province of Malaga and one in the province of Córdoba. According to Spain’s National Geographic Institute (IGN), the strongest of the three earthquakes was felt at 5.17am in Baena, Córdoba, with a magnitude of 3.8. Shortly after, at 5.48 am, a second earthquake struck the town of Benalmadena in Malaga, with a magnitude of 3.5. The first earthquake also struck Malaga, in the town of Archidona, at 2.57am, but was the mildest with a magnitude of just 1.8.
According to officials, the Baena earthquake occurred “barely three kilometres from where another earthquake took place last year and with a similar magnitude”. The quake was reportedly felt by residents but emergency services officials say they did not receive any calls. Córdoba mayor, Felisa Cañete confirmed there had been no injuries or damages, saying the tremor was felt “but only for a moment and very mildly”.

4,655 Reported UFO Sightings in 2017; 490 in California Alone ..
UFO sightings are nothing new. The Puritans reported strange sightings and lights in the sky as early as the 1600s. With the advent of movies about outer space and unidentified flying objects came even more sightings. The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) has an entire website dedicated to the “collection and dissemination of objective UFO data.” The organization curates reports of UFO sightings in the U.S. and Canada via a web form and a phone hotline,
which has operated almost continuously since 1974. NUFORC logged a total of 4,655 sightings in 2017, down from the 2016 total of 5,619. A recent report came from New Mexico on December 14. A woman reported that she and her husband saw a triangular object with bright green lights near Santa Fe. She claims they “saw an object flying across the Interstate in a southeasterly direction. It appeared triangular with bright green lights around its entire periphery.”

Extreme Cold Temps Cracking Windows at Apple Store In Chicago

Extreme Cold Temps Cracking Windows at Apple Store In Chicago
For all of its fancy engineering and architectural accolades earned since opening in October, Michigan Avenue’s glassy new Apple store is struggling with an apparently unexpected adversary: Chicago’s wintery climate. According to a report by The Verge, frozen chunks of snow and icicles sliding off the riverfront building’s gutter-less, laptop-esque roof pose a serious threat to pedestrians. The dangerous condition forced Apple employees to close-off portions of Pioneer Court with caution tape and deploy signs reading “Watch for falling snow and ice.”
Falling ice wasn’t the only winter-related issue facing the Foster + Partners-designed flagship store this week. According to pictures posted to the discussion forum at Skyscraperpage, Chicago’s recent cold snap caused at least one of the store’s glass panels to develop a crack. Considering the structural glass is comprised of thin sheets laminated together like plywood, its replacement likely won’t come cheap. And while this week saw temps dip below zero, it was nowhere close to record lows for the city. It’s possible that even colder weather will cause other pieces to fracture.

Standout years for record cold in the Northeast at this point in the season were in 1880-81 and 1917-18. In the Midwest, the years 1967-68 and 1973-74 left a mark with subzero F cold.

Sharks freeze and Niagara Falls turns to ICE in -37C temperatures colder than MARS as America braces for its chilliest New Year’s Eve in 50 years
The US is colder than the surface of Mars and Niagara Falls has turned to ice as temperatures plummet to record-breaking lows — leading to frozen sharks washing up on the beach. It is set to be the coldest New Year in living memory as 220 million Americans wrap up to face lows of -37 degrees Celsius.  The crippling cold has brought transit systems grinding to a halt in Boston while there were 30 crashes in one Michigan county alone on Friday morning due to treacherous icy roads. Fountains froze over in New
York where New Years Eve partygoers are being warned to lay off the booze and bring some hand warmers to see the famous big ball drop in Times Square as forecasters say it will hit -11C. The National Weather Service has warned of hypothermia and frostbite across the country. A dog in Ohio was found frozen solid on a front porch — while three Atlantic White Sharks have been found frozen solid having been washed up on Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts over the last three days.

DEVELOPING: Kim Jong-un preparing another missile launch

DEVELOPING: Kim Jong-un preparing another missile launch
North Korea is planning yet another missile test, according to senior US officials, amid World War 3 scares.  The senior official from Donald Trump’s White House administration claimed “preliminary signs” shown, which could mean Kim Jong-un is plotting to launch another missile. They also said Donald Trump is planning to be “more discreet” when talking publicly about US military exercises with
South Korea and Japan. The US has held several exercises with its allies on North Korea’s border, as a show of strength to despot leader Kim Jong-un. North Korea replied by suggesting Donald Trump and his US forces are only increasing the possibility of World War 3.

New synagogue opens under Temple Mount
While there may not be a Third Temple at which Israeli Jews can worship atop the Jerusalem Temple Mount, there is a brand-new synagogue under the foundation of the holy site – and it’s open for prayer.   The new center of worship is the result of 12 years of construction at a cost of $50 million, and it is located directly under the Western Wall, where Jews have gathered for centuries to pray at the retaining wall for the Temple Mount.
“The unique design of the prayer hall combines rare art and unique lighting, creating a wonderful contrast between ancient and modern,” said a statement by the Western Wall Heritage Foundation. In a related development, Israeli Culture Minister Miri Regev has suggested the government allocate another $50 million to explore the foundations Temple beneath Muslim Al-Aqsa Mosque. In the new synagogue, the bimah, or altar, and seating are made of wood. The synagogue features dozens of elegant benches, arranged in separate men’s and women’s sections.

Judge Sides With Humanists Challenging Prayer at Graduation, Ceremony at Chapel
A federal judge in South Carolina says that a school district’s continuing practice of including invocations and religious speech at public school graduations is a “cultural residue” left over from historical practices, and that its allowances are wrongly “continuing to color and confuse the application” of its recently revised policies intended to establish neutrality toward religion. “As the court remarked in its prior order, ‘because of the historical inclusion of prayer and religious speech at
graduations, in this school district and State, it is conceivable that the cultural residue of prior practices might continue to color and confuse the application of, even now, constitutionally neutral practices,’” wrote U.S. District Judge Bruce Howe Hendricks, appointed to the bench by then-President Barack Obama, on Dec. 12. “Based on the evidence submitted by AHA, it appears that the historical practices of the school district are, in fact, continuing to color and confuse the application of what appears to be a constitutionally neutral prayer policy, but what, in practice, may not be,” she wrote.

Oregon Court Rules Against Bakery Owners Who Refused to Make Wedding Cake for Same-Sex Couple

Oregon Court Rules Against Bakery Owners Who Refused to Make Wedding Cake for Same-Sex Couple
In March, Faithwire covered the plight of Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, Oregon, who were forced to pay $135,000 after declining to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. On Thursday, the Oregon Court of Appeals unanimously upheld the ruling—and $135,000 fine—that the bakery owners discriminated against the couple by refusing to make them a cake, violating Oregon law. As Faithwire reported, the Kleins’ woes began in 2013 when they declined to bake a cake for
Rachel Cryer-Bowman and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, citing their Christian stance on same-sex nuptials. After a complaint was waged by the couple, the state stepped in and awarded the massive sum of money, claiming the Kleins were guilty of discrimination. Refusing to backdown from their faith and belief that the ruling violated their own religious liberty, the Kleins pushed back against the state’s decision, officially filing an appeals case last year.

Shocked Mother Finds Christmas Doll Swearing at Child
A shocked mother was forced to take her daughter’s favourite Christmas present away from her after it appeared to repeat explicit insults.  Siobhan Fox, 30, filmed the My Little Baby Born Walks Doll, which she believes sounds like it is saying “you b****, you b****” rather than the “mama” and “papa” she and husband Daniel had expected. The mum told Sun Online: “My daughter is two-and-a-half-years-old, she
wanted it because her friend has one, it was on the top of her list. “My husband got it out for her and put the batteries in – I was not in the room. “My daughter had it off my husband and it just caught his ear. It’s meant to say ‘mama, dada’ – it’s totally not. “He called me in and said ‘look what do you think to this’, I got it straight away.” Siobhan and husband Daniel, 30, had to remove the doll from the tot because little Darcey repeats everything she hears.

Iran Recognizes Jerusalem As Palestinian Capital City in Response to Trump Declaration

Iran Recognizes Jerusalem As Palestinian Capital City in Response to Trump Declaration
In a symbolic pushback to President Donald Trump’s declaration on the status of Jerusalem, Iranian lawmakers on Wednesday voted to recognize the contested city as the capital of the Palestinians. The Iranian parliament voted in favor of a bill that recognized the city as the Palestinian capital, or the capital of the “State of Palestine,” the entity recognized by the United Nations as a member state. Of 290 lawmakers, 207 voted in favor of the bill.
Ali Larijani, speaker of the Parliament of Iran, said that the bill’s timing was “important,” given Trump’s December 6 announcement that he had ordered the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, upending decades of U.S. foreign policy in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “It comes in response to the recent U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in hopes of dealing a blow to Muslims,” he said, according to Turkish state news agency Anadolu.

Evangelicals Fear Knowledge, Don’t Want to Become Pharisees

Evangelicals Fear Knowledge, Don’t Want to Become Pharisees
Most American Christians today cannot respond to any question deeper than “Does God love everyone?” as they think such discourse should be reserved for theological universities, argues Colorado-based Ethan Renoe, who identifies himself as “an artist, traveler, and the Lord often speaks to me in poems.” There is a fear in evangelical Christianity of knowledge, Renoe claims in an article on his website, proposing two reasons behind that fear.
“People are scared that if they come to know too much, they’ll be like the Pharisees and will just become haughty and judgmental to others, thus weakening their love for God; or they’re afraid that they’ll learn too much and go off the deep end of liberalism and swim in the risky waters of universalism and other heresies.” Renoe, who graduated from the Moody Bible Institute, says he has found that the more he learns about God, His Word, and “theology which describes Him, the more I can love and worship Him, because now there is that much more to adore and be amazed by.”

Universal Basic Income Picking Up Traction
Dec 28, 2017 | 0  |     
Universal Basic Income Picking Up Traction
Imagine receiving a pile of cash each month from the government, no strings attached.  The concept sounds radical, but it’s an economic theory gaining traction from Silicon Valley to the Nordics, called universal basic income. Free money experiments are underway in a handful of countries as governments face evolving workforces and strained welfare systems.
The International Monetary Fund defines universal basic income as “a cash transfer of an equal amount to all individuals in a country.” Universal basic income differs from other government transfers, like tax refunds or welfare payments, in that every individual receives the same amount. Recipients can spend the money however they like, and they aren’t required to report how they spend it.

PROPHECY WATCH: Turkey’s Erdogan has eye on becoming global caliph

PROPHECY WATCH: Turkey’s Erdogan has eye on becoming global caliph
There are increasing signs that Turkey’s dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, aims to turn his nation into the dominant component of a new Islamic caliphate, controlling, even more, territory than the Ottoman Empire.  Islam expert and author Joel Richardson wrote shortly after Turkey’s controversial election in which Erdogan was given virtually unrestricted power that analysts in recent years tried “to shout down warnings that Erdogan has a desire to return to the Ottoman era.”
“Today those same critics are taking a fresh look at the man they once made excuses for and even championed,” he wrote. On the day Erdogan won the referendum allowing him to rewrite the Turkish constitution, effectively ending the secular democratic Republic of Turkey as envisioned by Ataturk, he made “a very symbolic statement,” Richardson wrote. “Not only did he specifically avoid visiting the tomb of Ataturk (who turned Turkey into a secular government), but instead, he visited the tomb of Sultan Selim I.”

New Research Suggests Christmas Story of Visit by Wise Men Was ‘Historically True’

New Research Suggests Christmas Story of Visit by Wise Men Was ‘Historically True’
Despite attempts by a modern biblical scholarship to debunk the gospel account of three magi visiting the newborn Jesus in Bethlehem, the stories were “historically true” according to extensive research by author Dwight Longenecker. In his new book, Mystery of the Magi: The Quest to Identify the Three Wise Men, Longenecker, a scholar and Catholic priest, states that an impartial study of the relevant data “shows beyond a reasonable doubt” that the Magi of Matthew’s gospel were historical figures.
For many years, Longenecker writes, skeptical scholars have rejected the possibility that the infancy stories about Jesus could be historical for a number of reasons, such as the fact that they contain supernatural elements. “The first problem with this is that the skeptic simply assumes supernatural experiences are impossible, therefore any story that contains supernatural elements must be a fanciful invention,” he notes.

Paula White Says ‘Crusader’ Trump Put Jesus Christ, Christmas, and Prayer Back in White House
Paula White, who is President Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser, said Trump, whom she called a “crusader,” put Christmas, Jesus Christ, and prayer back in the White House. Speaking in an interview Monday with “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel, the senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Florida stated: “Well, isn’t it nice to be able to say Merry Christmas and to put Jesus Christ

back on the White House lawn? And to have the crusader that we have in our president?” “It is so vitally important — first off, it’s personal to him. He’s a man of faith, he is a believer. He’s spiritual. I’ve known him for over 17 years. And Trump just hasn’t put Christ back in Christmas, but he’s also put prayer back in the White House, he’s put justice back into, and religious freedom back into, our courts.”

North Korean defector had anthrax antibodies in system
Traces of anthrax antibodies were discovered in the system of a North Korean soldier who had defected to South Korea at some point in 2017, a local South Korean television station reported Tuesday. The soldier’s name and exact date of defection were not disclosed. But the defector is said to have been exposed to or vaccinated for anthrax, a serious bacterial disease, UPI reported, citing Channel A. They
reportedly became immune to the disease before defection. “Anthrax antibodies have been found in the North Korean soldier who defected this year,” according an unnamed South Korean official speaking to Channel A. The news comes amid earlier reports that North Korea was beginning tests to mount anthrax onto intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the U.S.

Swarthmore College offers a course in WHAT?
One of the nation’s most prestigious liberal arts colleges is advancing a “queer theology” agenda with hopes of destabilizing traditional beliefs about what the Bible says about gender and sexuality.  Swarthmore College, founded by Quakers, is offering courses in “queering the Bible” and “queering God.” The courses were first reported by Campus Reform. “Queering the Bible” is a one-credit class that surveys “queer and trans readings of biblical texts.”
“By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and transtheoretical approaches, this class destabilizes long-held assumptions about what the Bible – and religion – says about gender and sexuality,” the course description reads.  The school’s religion department is also teaching a class that questions the sexuality of the Almighty called, “Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology.” “The God of the Bible and later Jewish and Christian literature is distinctively masculine, definitely male. Or is He?” the course description reads.

Chinese Church Meeting on Street and Homes After Landlord Declines to Renew Lease

Chinese Church Meeting on Street and Homes After Landlord Declines to Renew Lease
A persecuted church in China’s central Hubei province is meeting on the streets and meeting in church members’ homes after their landlord refused to renew their lease. Earlier this year, Yanji Christian Church began meeting outside when government officials prohibited them from entering their building. On several occasions, people hired by the authorities threw firecrackers at the Christians and doused them in mud.
In December 2016, the church received a notice from the Echeng District Religious Affairs Bureau that banned its services and religious activities, saying that they conducted them without government permission, and further forbade any missionary programs from being carried out there. Now, their lease has expired, and the landlord is refusing to renew it, most likely due to government pressure.

Demonic Deception Lurks Behind This Widespread Phenomenon
Dec 27, 2017 | 1  |     
Demonic Deception Lurks Behind This Widespread Phenomenon
(By Gary Bates) I grew up as a science-fiction fan, and I can recall the religious impact it had on me. I dreamed of utopian alien worlds filled with technologically advanced beings that might save the Earth someday. After getting saved in my adult years (in an Assemblies of God church in Western Australia), I started to see things differently. I still love sci-fi, but front and center, I keep in mind the word “fiction,” because most people, including Christians, don’t recognize the strong evolutionary connection in sci-fi. Life only came about by one of two ways. Either it was created (as the Bible says), or it evolved (and countless times over in the incredibly vast universe). And if aliens evolved long before life evolved on Earth, they could also be millions of years advanced with their technology; building hyperdrive spaceships and so. It’s these ideas that permeates most sci-fi today.
So, I undertook specialist research as a way of using this popular cultural idea to lead people to the Gospel. However, I got more than I bargained for.  Polls report that in the U.S. alone, over 20 million people claim to have seen a UFO, and up to 4 million claim they have been abducted by aliens. Other researchers and I have collectively interviewed thousands of people, and the common pattern of the experiences makes it clear something is really happening to them. The big question is, are these “close encounters” really aliens flying to earth in faster-than-light spaceships from a galaxy far, far away? The answer is a firm no, because the evidence itself shows that these experiences are spiritual in nature.

Twin Quakes Shake San Jose, California Region
A pair of earthquakes rattled the South Bay Tuesday night, in an area notorious for seismic restlessness, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.  A 3.9 magnitude quake, the stronger of the two temblors, struck at 10:32 p.m. about 5 miles east-northeast of Alum Rock at a depth of about 5.5 miles, the USGS reported. An earlier quake — a 3.1 — hit at 7:19 p.m. about 5.6 miles east-northeast of San Martin at a
depth of about 7.5 miles, the USGS said. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. Dave Freund of Los Gatos felt “a quick, small jolt on Lexington Reservoir.” “A good shaker,” said Sanjay Khandelwal of Los Gatos. “My daughter felt it as well. She sleeps in a bunk bed and felt it move.”

The Absence of the Fear of the Lord Is Causing Too Many People to Drift

The Absence of the Fear of the Lord Is Causing Too Many People to Drift
(By Bert Farias) I remember as a child, learning to float on my back in the water at a beach we frequented in the summertime. After floating for a few minutes I’d look around and realize I had drifted quite a distance from where I first started. The gentle motion of the ocean waves had caused me to drift. I find this concept to be true in the Christian life as well. There is a spiritual drifting that occurs when we don’t maintain a strong and close communion with the Lord and feed on the full counsel of His Word.
You will begin accepting what popular elevated teachers in the Christian marketplace teach you instead of what the Bible actually says. It will become easier for you to swallow erroneous teachings – fables, fads, and popular trends in Christendom. And worse of all, you’ll slip into sin, worldliness, and compromise a little at a time, and before you know it, you’ll be flirting with darkness and activities that you never thought you would engage in again. The writer of Hebrews exhorts us:

Syrian Army and Hezbollah Advance Deeper Into Border Area Near Israel
The Syrian Army and the Iran-backed Lebanese terror group Hezbollah moved deeper into a strategic area bordering Israel and Lebanon this week, in the latest aggressive Iranian advancement in the region. The Syrian forces and Lebanese terror group moved near the Sunni rebel-controlled area of Beit Jin in southern Syria with support from heavy artillery and aerial bombing. Beit Jin is the last remaining rebel-controlled enclave southwest of Damascus. “The Iranian-backed militias are trying to consolidate their
sphere of influence all the way from southwest of Damascus to the Israeli border,” said Suhaib al Ruhail, a member of a Sunni rebel group in the area, Reuters reported. The developments follow a recent surge in alleged Israeli strikes on targets in Syria, suggesting a new Israeli urgency to block Iran’s spread into the war-torn country. The latest purported Israeli strikes in Syria targeted weapons production facilities and an Iranian military base.

Christmas Eve car wreck kills man but was brought back to life after encounter with Jesus.
A man was technically dead on Christmas Eve after being involved in a car crash but was brought back to life by paramedics says he had a close encounter with Jesus.  The person, who goes by the name Paul O, claims to have enjoyed the experience of being deceased and says he was given a message from Jesus. He said he was driving to his father’s grave to place flowers with his wife and her sister in 1971 when disaster struck. Mr O says lost control of the car, swerved on the other side of the road where a piece of
wood came loose from another vehicle and headed straight towards him. He said: “I saw coming towards the windscreen a plank of wood. It was moving very slowly, end on to my line of sight. “As I realised I was about to be killed, a sensation as of a swirling vortex began that enveloped my whole body, which then concentrated in my head and I exited my body through the top of my head. I literally flew out of the top of my head.

China to Overtake U.S. Economy In 15 Years…
The growing importance of Asia’s major economies will continue in 2018 and beyond, according to a league table that sees the region dominating in terms of size in just over a decade. The report by the Centre for Economics and Business Research in London sees India leapfrogging the U.K. and France next year to become the world’s fifth-biggest economy in dollar terms. It will advance to third place by 2027, moving ahead of Germany.
In 2032, three of the four largest economies will be Asian — China, India and Japan — and, by that time, China will also have overtaken the U.S. to hold the No. 1 spot. India’s advance won’t stop there, according to the CEBR, which sees it taking the top place in the second half of the century. Also by 2032, South Korea and Indonesia will have entered the top 10, supplanting the Group of Seven nations of Italy and Canada.

United States cuts $285 million from UN funding…
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced Sunday that the United States negotiated a $285 million cut in the United Nations’ “bloated” budget for next year. “The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” Haley said in a statement from the US Mission. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.” Haley added that the “historic reduction” in spending is a step in the right direction and that the US would make many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable UN.
“In addition to these significant cost savings, we reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key US priorities throughout the world and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the UN system,” the statement said. The new deal for the 2018-2019 fiscal year is $285 million less than the world body’s staggering $5.4 billion budget for fiscal year 2016-2017.

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced Sunday that the United States negotiated a $285 million cut in the United Nations’ “bloated” budget for next year.

“The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” Haley said in a statement from the US Mission. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.”

Haley added that the “historic reduction” in spending is a step in the right direction and that the US would make many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable UN.

“In addition to these significant cost savings, we reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key US priorities throughout the world and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the UN system,” the statement said.

The new deal for the 2018-2019 fiscal year is $285 million less than the world body’s staggering $5.4 billion budget for fiscal year 2016-2017.

The ambassador went on to say that she hopes to help make even more reductions in the UN’s budget in the years to come.

Haley’s announcement came just days after she slammed the UN for “singling out” the United States and voting on a resolution to oppose President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The former South Carolina governor went on the warpath last week over the UN’s resolution — and said the US would be “taking names,” as a result.

“The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out in this assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation,” Haley told member nations ahead of their vote.

Guatemala, meanwhile, became the first nation to follow Trump’s lead when it announced Sunday that it would be moving its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

President Jimmy Morales said he made the decision after discussions with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Guatemala was one of the nine nations that voted against the UN’s resolution on Jerusalem.

The country has long had ties with Israel, especially in security matters.

No other country has chosen to move its embassy to Jerusalem since Trump’s decision, although the Czech Republic has said it is considering it.

United States cuts $285 million from UN funding…
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced Sunday that the United States negotiated a $285 million cut in the United Nations’ “bloated” budget for next year. “The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known,” Haley said in a statement from the US Mission. “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.” Haley added that the “historic reduction” in spending is a step in the right direction and that the US would make many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable UN.
“In addition to these significant cost savings, we reduced the UN’s bloated management and support functions, bolstered support for key US priorities throughout the world and instilled more discipline and accountability throughout the UN system,” the statement said. The new deal for the 2018-2019 fiscal year is $285 million less than the world body’s staggering $5.4 billion budget for fiscal year 2016-2017.

Are The Central Banks Planning To Replace “Bitcoin” with “Fedcoin”?

Are The Central Banks Planning To Replace “Bitcoin” with “Fedcoin”?
Fedcoin doesn’t even exist yet, and yet the Washington Post is already hyping it as the primary cryptocurrency that we will be using in the future. Do they know something that the rest of us do not? Just a few days ago I warned that global central banks could eventually try to take control of the cryptocurrency phenomenon, and so I was deeply alarmed to see the Post publish this sort of an article. We want cryptocurrencies to stay completely independent, and we definitely do not want the Federal

Reserve and other global central banks to start creating their own versions. Because of course once they create their own versions they will want to start restricting the use of any competitors. The one thing that could derail the cryptocurrency revolution faster than anything else would be interference by national governments or global central banks. Unfortunately, now that Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies are getting so much attention, it is inevitable that the powers that be will make a move.

Thieves are stealing your cell phone number to take your money
In less than 15 minutes, my dad had his cell phone number stolen from him and had his bank account hacked into, all while he watched as his email alert him every step of the way.  It appears that his T-Mobile cell phone number was used against him, ported to an account with Metro PCS, and then used to allow a thief to gain access to his online bank account. “I was on the phone with Wells Fargo as the money was being transferred,” my dad Mike Zelinger said.
“As I was waiting, I was receiving emails from Wells Fargo saying that this has been completed, and your transfer has been completed.” What my dad is going through does not appear to be isolated. Customers have complained on Twitter and Reddit about their phone number being ported elsewhere and then used to gain access to bank accounts.

Tennessee McDonald’s Honors The True Meaning Of Christmas With Jesus-Centered Nativity Scene
It is not every day you see the biggest fast food chain in the world boldly declaring the name of Jesus. One Tennessee McDonald’s refused use their window-displayed nativity scene to shift more Big Mac’s – instead choosing to honor the true “reason for the season.” The Spring Hill branch flanked their massive nativity scene with signs that read “Rejoice” and “His Name is Jesus.” Christian blogger Amy Klutinoty spotted the sign as she was driving past.
Amy founded “Your Path His Plan,” a ministry seeking to encourage others in their walk with the Lord. As she explains on her website:  “God has truly done a quick work in me, and I am humbled and walk in complete reverence to the calling He has placed upon my life. I know what God saved me from, and because I have been forgiven much, I love much. The entire purpose of my ministry is to reach a hurt, desolate, and hopeless world so I can share the Gospel, love, and POWER of Jesus Christ through boldness and Truth!

Guatemala Says it is Moving Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem
Guatemala’s president announced on Christmas Eve that the Central American country will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, becoming the first nation to follow the lead of U.S. President Donald Trump in ordering the change.  Guatemala was one of nine nations that voted with the United States and Israel on Thursday when the U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly adopted a non-binding resolution denouncing Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Trump didn’t set any timetable for moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and neither did Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales. In a post on his official Facebook account Sunday, Morales said that after talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he decided to instruct Guatemala’s foreign ministry to move the embassy. No other country has their embassy for Israel in Jerusalem, though the Czech Republic has said it is considering such a move.

7 Things That Prove God Is Real

7 Things That Prove God Is Real
(By J. Lee Grady) When I was a journalist in my 20s, I needed to verify a fact about atheism. This was before the Internet age, so I phoned the Texas headquarters of American Atheists. Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the mother of modern atheism in this country, answered my call. Apparently, she had a very small staff! Her voice was gruff, and she sounded angry and cynical, even before I identified myself as a Christian. She answered my question and I hung up. Ever since then, I’ve felt intense sadness for people who deny the existence of God. Explaining her beliefs, O’Hair once said, “There is no God. There’s no heaven. There’s no hell. There are no angels. When you die, you go in the ground; the worms eat you.” What a sad way to view life!
I’m sure Mrs. O’Hair would be upset about the new Christian film God’s Not Dead, which opens in theaters this Friday. The film features Kevin Sorbo (who played in the 1990s TV show Hercules) as an atheist college professor who tries to force a Christian student (Shane Harper) to rethink his beliefs. The film releases at a time when atheism is growing in this country. I was never on the debate team in high school, so I’m not the best guy to take on evolutionist Richard Dawkins or comedian/atheist Bill Maher in a televised argument. Still, my faith in God is certainly not shaken when I hear these guys whining about how stupid or weak Christians are. They have a constitutional right to view life negatively. But if I had a chance to give them my reasons for believing in God, I would list these:

Could The US Survive An EMP Attack?

Could The US Survive An EMP Attack?
While there’s no question that a nuclear strike on the Continental US would be utterly devastating, it’s not the only way a rogue state like North Korea could kill millions of American civilians in one fell swoop.  Another possibility that is being studied by lawmakers and Pentagon officials is – like North Korea itself – a vestige of the Cold War. We’re of course referring to an electromagnetic pulse. By detonating a hydrogen bomb in just the right spot miles above the Earth’s surface, the North could permanently damage the US power grid – maybe even take it offline completely.
By robbing entire swaths of the US of electricity, the North could precipitate thousands – if not millions – of deaths. The North first threatened an EMP attack over the summer, and North Korean media and its people have mentioned it several times since. Given the success of the North’s missile tests, Congress increased funding for the Commission to Assess the Threat to the US from Electromagnetic Pulse Attack as part of the National Defense Authorization Act back in September.

Pope delivers Christmas message on need of “Two-State Solution” and warns of “Winds of War”
Pope Francis in his traditional Christmas message on Monday called for a two-state solution to find peace in the Middle East and prayed that confrontation can be overcome on the Korean Peninsula. The pope took particular aim at areas of global tension where President Donald Trump is playing a critical role. Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has ignited new violence in the Middle East, while confrontation with North Korea over its nuclear tests has escalated tensions in Asia.
“The winds of war are blowing in our world and an outdated model of development continues to produce human, societal and environmental decline,” the pope said in his traditional “Urbi et Orbi” (“to the city and to the world”) Christmas message and blessing from the central balcony overlooking St. Peter’s Square. About 50,000 faithful packed the square.

Pastor John Hagee Says Anti-Semitism On the Rise After Latest UN Jerusalem Vote
The United Nations General Assembly approved a resolution Thursday calling President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and plans to move the U.S. embassy there “null and void.”  While this resolution does nothing to change U.S. plans, John Hagee, pastor and founder of Christians United for Israel, says the vote reveals exactly what’s wrong with the United Nations. “The nations are outraged by this because this is a reflection of who they absolutely are.
The United Nations is a habitation of tinhorn dictators who spend much of their waking hours fabricating human rights violations against Israel,” Hagee told CBN News. “Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years since King David conquered the city from the Jebusites. This historical fact is an absolute irritation to the United Nations because they’re preaching historical fiction that the Palestinians should have control of the city of Jerusalem, if not the whole of the nation of Israel.”

Christmas Sidelined at German School After Muslim Complains Over Carols

Christmas Sidelined at German School After Muslim Complains Over Carols
A 600-year-old school in Germany has ditched Christmas celebrations during class time after a Muslim pupil said that carols were incompatible with Islam.  After a stir in local media over reports that the Johanneum Gymnasium in Lüneburg had “canceled” Christmas following a Muslim girl’s complaint that the songs conflicted with her religion, the school’s headmaster said that the school was taking “a sensitive approach” to the festive season. Headmaster Friedrich Suhr confirmed that the complaint had
taken place, but denied it was behind the decision of management at the school — one of the oldest in northern Germany — to postpone and make voluntary its annual Christmas party.  The headmaster also explained that that music lessons at the school would no longer include songs with religiously-themed lyrics, pointing to regional education board rules which require teachers show consideration to pupils from minority faiths.

UN Security Council Imposes Tougher Sanctions on North Korea
The U.N. Security Council unanimously approved tough new sanctions on North Korea Friday in response to the latest launch of a ballistic missile that Pyongyang says is capable of reaching anywhere on the U.S. mainland. The new sanctions approved in the council resolution include sharply cutting limits on North Korea’s imports of refined oil,
forcing all North Koreans working overseas to return home within 24 months, and cracking down on shipping to and from the country. But the resolution doesn’t include even harsher sanctions sought by the Trump administration, such as prohibiting all oil imports and freezing the international assets of North Korea’s government and its leader, Kim Jong Un.

Christmas Terror Plot Foiled In San Francisco
Officials say they’ve stopped a man who was planning a possible Christmas terror attack in San Francisco. We’ve learned the FBI has arrested a man by the name of Everitt Aaron Jameson from Modesto. They say he wanted to target Pier 39. According to FBI documents, Jameson picked out that
location because he “had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area.” He added that it would be easy to “funnel” people into an area where he could inflict casualties. Jameson reportedly said he was inspired by the New York terror attack on Oct. 31, when a man drove into a crowd and killed eight people, and the deadly 2015 shooting in San Bernardino.

Is the United Nations Fulfilling Ancient Biblical Prophecy?
(By Michael Brown) On Dec. 21, 2017, the U.N. united as one to stand against one city on the planet: Jerusalem. Twenty-five centuries earlier, the prophet Zechariah wrote these words from the Lord, “I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle” (Zech. 14:2a) Did the U.N. just move us one step closer to fulfilling this ancient prophecy? Before answering this question, let’s look at the events on the ground.
First, the U.N. once again distinguished itself for hypocrisy by targeting Israel for its criticism—specifically, America’s support of Israel—while remaining silent on so many issues of world importance. What has the U.N. been doing during the horrific war in Syria? Where has the U.N. been during the attempted genocide of Christians in the Middle East? Decades earlier, what did the U.N. have to say about Tiananmen Square in China or Saddam Hussein’s chemical warfare against the Kurds? Yet when America recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the U.N. is an uproar.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.23% Opens a New Window. which is knocking on the door of the 25,000 milestone and earlier this week notched its 70th record close of 2017 to break a calendar-year record that’s stood since 1995, is on track to log its longest streak of monthly gains in nearly 59 years.  The Dow was up 1.9% so far in December through Wednesday’s close. If it remains positive for
the month, it will mark its ninth straight monthly rise, which would be the longest since a 12-month streak that ended in February 1959, according to The Wall Street Journal’s Market Data Group. The Dow’s run has it on track for a rise of more than 25% year-to-date, which would be its strongest since a 26.5% advance in 2013. It’s a testament not only to the robustness of the stock market in 2017, but its ability to steam ever higher with nary a significant pullback.

Netanyahu says ‘Several countries’ considering following US lead and moving embassies to Jerusalem
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said “several countries” are considering moving their embassies to Jerusalem in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize the city as the capital of Israel.  Speaking exclusively to CNN a day after the United Nations Assembly voted against Trump’s move, Netanyahu said the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem could lead the way for others to follow. “We’re now talking to several countries who are seriously considering saying exactly the
same thing as the United States and moving their embassies to Jerusalem,” Netanyahu told CNN. On Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Netanyahu added: “I think what it does is finally recognize a historical truth.  “Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years from the time of King David. It has been the capital of Israel for 70 years, and it’s about time that the US said, and I’m glad they said, ‘This is the capital and we recognize it’ and I think that’s going to be followed by other countries.”

Stephen Baldwin Says Hollywood Rejects Him as a Christian, Producers Say “No to Him and His Bible”
Actor Stephen Baldwin has opened up about the rejection he feels from Hollywood, both due to his Christianity and his support for President Donald Trump, with producers openly saying they don’t want him and his Bible around.  Baldwin’s interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday served to promote his “Great American Pilgrimage” TV series, where the actor travels across the U.S. talking to Americans about the state of the union, and delved into his support for Trump and his faith.
Baldwin said that he’s known as the “Jesus freak of Hollywood,” which both does and doesn’t bother him. “It’s unfortunate that because I have believed in Jesus for 15 years that there are many in Hollywood who are unwilling to work with me. That’s not a guess. Casting people and producers have told me that they’ve brought up my name in a room and the response was, ‘No way, we’re not bringing that guy and his Bible over here,'” the actor said.

Medinah couple married 71 years die within minutes of each other
Made for each other.  No phrase better describes longtime Medinah residents Bob and Ruth Kretschmer, who died within minutes of each other Friday, five days after they celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary.  Ruth Kretschmer, a onetime Republican politician who chaired the DuPage County Board’s zoning committee and served 20 years on the Illinois Commerce Commission, had been in hospice for two years, said the couple’s daughter Roberta “Bobbi” Boston. Bob Kretschmer, a World War II veteran
and two-time Purple Heart recipient, was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, she said. “They both wanted to die in this house and if my father went first, that wasn’t going to happen for my mother,” said Boston, her voice breaking. “He hung in there for her. After she passed away, he asked why everyone was crying, then he passed away. “They worked it out between them, through the grace of God,” Boston said.

This Is a Huge Part of Why Our Culture Is So Desensitized to Sin

This Is a Huge Part of Why Our Culture Is So Desensitized to Sin
(By Brian Bird) I’ve been writing and producing films and television shows in Hollywood for three decades, but I’ve been a consumer of media for a lot longer. Some of the moments I treasure most from my childhood were those evenings sitting with my family watching TV… together. When I was young, the TV set was a destination all of us shared and enjoyed. I don’t believe we were alone in that. At one time, American homes were filled with that glowing, flickering warmth of families spending time together, gathered to watch their favorite shows. And we would laugh, cry and most of the time, be uplifted by the storytelling. It was a special time—not just for my family, but I believe for tens of millions of American families.
But that’s not the case anymore. Shared family media is a lost cultural experience. Advances in technology have left us in separate rooms watching niche media content on our own TV sets, PCs, electronic book-readers, tablets or smartphones—all disconnected from one another.  But that’s just part of the problem. As the media landscape has become fractured by a thousand different entertainment choices 24/7, 365 (for instance, there were 500 original, scripted TV programs produced in 2017 alone), the competition for eyeballs has become fiercer than anything I have experienced in 30 years of telling stories.

Islamic State terrorists are threatening Christmas and New Year’s attacks in major cities across the US and Europe. The terror group has released a series of chilling posters depicting holiday attacks. The latest show two armed terrorists with the grammatically incorrect words,
“Wait for us on your year parties.”  Other posters show an image of Santa standing beside explosives in Times Square. Last December, an ISIS jihadist drove a truck through a Christmas market in Berlin, killing a dozen people and wounding many more.

US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was condemned by 128 countries in a United Nations vote Thursday. Nine countries supported the US’ decision, 35 abstained and another 21 did not participate in the vote. Turkey and Yemen co-sponsored the draft
resolution which called on all countries to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions in Jerusalem.
Later Thursday, a “Save the Date” invitation from US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley was sent to the 64 countries who did not support the resolution to attend a reception to thank them for their “friendship to the United States.” Here’s how each of the countries voted, according to the UN:

PROPHECY WATCH: Did Nations Choose Blessing or Curse At UN Vote?
Zechariah 12:2-3 –  “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.
In a special session of 71 elders, the court of the nascent Sanhedrin called on the nations of the world to take their prophesied role in building Jerusalem by not voting against the declaration of the President Trump in the United Nations, emphasizing that this was an auspicious moment that will decide their fate, whether for blessing or curse.  The General Assembly is scheduled to vote Thursday on a resolution that would express “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.” This vote comes
in response to President Trump’s speech two weeks ago in which he acknowledged Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The UN resolution also calls on countries not to move their embassies to Jerusalem. The Sanhedrin prefaced its declaration with a verse from Isaiah. In all of My sacred mount Nothing evil or vile shall be done; For the land shall be filled with devotion to Hashem As water covers the sea.

FBI says Vegas shooter motive may take year to release…
Want to finally know why Stephen Paddock gunned down 58 people in Las Vegas in early October? Be prepared to wait a while – possibly until next October – the chief of the FBI’s Las Vegas office revealed this week during an interview in which he said the agency probably wouldn’t brief the public until their report is released sometime before the tragedy’s first anniversary.
“Now that’s a long time for some people, but speaking for the FBI, that’s light speed, all right?” Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Wednesday. Rouse said reports from other agencies investigating the mass shooting will be released at different times, but the FBI’s one is “focusing a large part on the why” which is “what everybody wants to know.”

Rare Quakes in US: Strongest quake this year in Alabama; M2.3 tremor rattles Vermont, 2.0 strikes New Madrid
In the last 24 hours, 2 rare quakes rattled the central and eastern parts of the USA. The strongest earthquake in Alabama this years – actually a minor M2.7 – hit near Scottsboro on December 20, 2017.Wednesday night. About 4 hours later, Upper Valley folks felt the ground shake when a M2.3 earthquake hit near White River Junction, Vermont. Small earthquakes are rare, but not unheard of, in the northeast. Last month, a M4.1 earthquake struck near Dover, Delaware. The Alabama quake was first measured at M2.9 and then downgraded to M2.7. The M2.7 – or M2.9 – is the 20th quake and the
strongest recorded in Alabama this year – placed equal with 3 other M2.7 tremors. The tremor was detected at 5:55 p.m. Wednesday and hit just under 4 miles below the earth’s surface 4.9 miles west of Scottsboro and about 27 miles east of Huntsville. A M1.8 earthquake was detected in extreme northeast Alabama on Tuesday night, the latest in a series of minor quakes in the state. The second rare earthquake struck near White River Junction, Vermont, near the New Hampshire border around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at a depth of less than 4 miles.

South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) party on Wednesday approved a resolution to downgrade the country’s embassy in Israel.  The decision, which ANC made at its national conference in Johannesburg, called for the “immediate and unconditional” downgrade of the embassy to a liaison office. “In order to give our practical expression of support to the oppressed people of Palestine; the ANC
has unanimously resolved to direct the SA government to immediately and unconditionally downgrade the South African Embassy in Israel to a Liaison Office,” said a statement from the party.  “We concur with the PLO leader, General Jibril Rajoub, who was at our conference where explained that the downgrade of the SA Embassy in Israel will send a clear message to Israel that there is a price to pay for its human rights abuses and violations of international law,” ANC added.

UN Condemns US on Jerusalem, Haley Tells Nations ‘We Will Remember’ This
The United Nations General Assembly today approved a resolution 128 to 9 calling President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and plans to move the U.S. embassy there “null and void” — however, it does nothing to change U.S. plans. The vote comes after U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley warned member nations she would be “taking names” of those who vote against the United States. President Trump took it a step further by threatening to cut off U.S. funding to the U.N. The United
States is the largest contributor to the international body. “This is bullying,” said the ambassador from Turkey adding, the “dignity of member states is not for sale.” Ambassador Haley told the body that the U.S. feeds, clothes and educates desperate people while nurturing and sustaining peace in fragile places throughout the world because it’s a reflection of American values. However, she said, when the U.S. makes generous contributions to the U.N. and the world we expect that goodwill to be respected.

Scientists warn massive magma pool bubbling under New England will one day spark volcanic eruption

Scientists warn massive magma pool bubbling under New England will one day spark volcanic eruption
A large pool of Magma has been found underneath a number of US states – and it will most likely spark a volcanic eruption.  Scientists at Rutgers University recently discovered the large mass of boiling hot rock that stretches across Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire.  And it is believed it will eventually lead to a volcanic eruption as the magma nears the surface.  Vadim Levin, a professor at
Rutgers’ Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, said: “The upwelling we detected is like a hot air balloon, and we infer that something is rising up through the deeper part of our planet under New England.  “It is a very large and relatively stable region, but we found an irregular pattern with rather abrupt changes in it.  “The bad news is, it’s going to erupt.”  But Professor Levin said the eruption won’t happen for “a few million years”.  “The good news is, it’s going to erupt a few million years from now,” he said.

Wycliffe Reaches Out to the Deaf with Sign Language Bible Translations
Imagine not having a Bible in your language. That’s a reality for around 2,000 languages across the globe.  Now in its 75th year, the world-renowned Wycliffe Bible Translators continues its work at reducing that number. One of their newest missions is reaching the deaf.  “The Scriptures clearly state that the Word will go forth to all people, all nations around the world, and then Christ will return,” Andy
Keener, director of global partnerships for Wycliffe USA, told CBN News. “And God has it all planned out, and the fact that he chooses to use an organization like Wycliffe to help bring about his plan just encourages me.” While the numbers are also encouraging, much work still needs to be done. The organization says up to 160 million people need the Bible translated in their languages.

Trump Threatens to Cut Financial Aid to UN Members Backing Anti-Israel Jerusalem Resolution

Trump Threatens to Cut Financial Aid to UN Members Backing Anti-Israel Jerusalem Resolution
President Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to cut off financial aid to countries that vote to pass a United Nations General Assembly resolution seeking to rescind his historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.  “They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars, and then they vote against us. Well, we’re watching those votes. Let them vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care,” Trump told reporters at the White House, according to Reuters.
After the U.S. on Monday vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution seeking to reaffirm Jerusalem’s status as unresolved, the Palestinians asked Arab and Muslim nations take a similar draft to the 193-member UN General Assembly for a nonbinding but symbolic vote to take place at a rare emergency special session on Thursday. Turkey and Yemen are sponsors of the draft. In a letter to dozens of member states, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley warned that “the president and the U.S. take this vote personally.”

Hundreds of Muslims Storm Coptic Church in Egypt…

Hundreds of Muslims Storm Coptic Church in Egypt…
Hundreds of Muslim demonstrators attacked an unlicensed church south of Cairo wounding three people, an Egyptian Coptic Christian diocese said on Saturday, in the latest assault on members of the country’s Christian minority. The incident took place after Friday prayers when dozens of demonstrators gathered outside the building and stormed it. The demonstrators chanted hostile slogans and called for

the church’s demolition, the diocese in Atfih said. The demonstrators destroyed the church’s contents and assaulted Christians inside before security personnel arrived and dispersed them. The wounded were transferred to a nearby hospital, the diocese said after the attack, without elaborating. A media coordinator at the diocese, the Rev. Yehnes Youssef, said later on Saturday that three Copts were wounded but have been treated.

HOA asks Pennsylvania family to remove ‘Jesus’ Christmas display
A religious holiday display is at the center of a dispute between two Gettysburg, Pa.-area residents and their neighborhood homeowner association. Mark Wivell put up Christmas decorations Dec. 16 which including a display in his mulch bed that says “Jesus,” as a reminder of what he says is the reason for the season: the birth of Jesus Christ. Wivell and his wife, Lynn, were gobsmacked when they received an
email a few days later from their homeowner association asking the couple to remove the display. One of their neighbors had complained the sign was offensive, an email from the association states. “We know that Christmas was about the birth of Jesus,” Wivell said. “I was quite shocked it offended somebody, but I guess in today’s world I shouldn’t have been.”

Ex-Navy pilot describes eerie encounter with UFO
Former U.S. Navy pilot Cmdr. David Fravor described his eerie encounter with a UFO on Monday, saying it resembled a white Tic Tac and was clearly “not from the Earth.”  “It was a real object, it exists and I saw it,” he told the Washington Post. “Something not from the Earth.” Fravor spotted the flying object on Nov. 14, 2004, after a break in a routine training mission about 60 to 100 miles off the coast between San Diego, California, and Ensenada, Mexico, the newspaper reported. He was searching
for some flying objects that officials had been tracking when he spotted one hovering above the ocean’s surface. It looked like a “white Tic Tac, about the same size as a Hornet, 40 feet long with no wings,” Fravor said. “Just hanging close to the water.”The object didn’t create rotor wash — air turbulence caused by helicopter blades — and mirrored the pilots’ movements as they got closer, then disappeared altogether.

We Need to Be Praying for Trump Rather Than Constantly Criticizing Him

We Need to Be Praying for Trump Rather Than Constantly Criticizing Him
(By Aaron Hall) I think one of the major problems with modern Christianity in America is our quick reaction to criticize someone rather than praying for them. Most Americans don’t know and will likely never personally meet President Trump, yet so many are quick to judge him solely because of what the media filers to our TVs, smartphones and social media newsfeeds. I dare say, we need to be praying for Trump rather than constantly criticizing him.
The Bible says in Romans 13:1b, “for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” The Apostle Paul, who wrote the Book of Romans, also writes in 1 Timothy 2:1-2, “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”

New Rule Forces Canadian Employers to Affirm Liberal Views on Abortion, LGBT Issues, Critics Say

New Rule Forces Canadian Employers to Affirm Liberal Views on Abortion, LGBT Issues, Critics Say
Evangelical conservatives and pro-lifers in Canada are voicing concern that a new requirement put in place by the federal government would force organizations to “attest” to liberal beliefs on abortion and LGBT rights in order to receiving funding to give kids summer jobs. Pro-lifers and social conservatives are speaking out against a new rule that has been enacted to a federal program to help local small businesses, nonprofits and charities provide summer jobs to over 70,000 students nationwide.

The government run by liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau enacted a new rule requiring that all organizations that apply to receive funds from the Canadian Summer Jobs program prove they don’t violate Canadian Charter Rights, “reproductive rights” and the “right to be free from discrimination” on the basis of social identifiers such as sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. “CSJ applicants will be required to attest that both the job and the organization’s core mandate respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as other rights,” an application for the 2018 CSJ program reads.

UN General Assembly to hold rare emergency session after US vetoes Jerusalem resolution

UN General Assembly to hold rare emergency session after US vetoes Jerusalem resolution
The UN General Assembly will hold a special session on Thursday, following a request by Arab and Muslim states. The countries have cited the US decision to veto a draft resolution on the status of Jerusalem. According to Palestinian UN envoy Riyad Mansour, the General Assembly will vote on a draft resolution calling for Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel to be withdrawn. The same resolution, put to the UN Security Council, was vetoed by the United States on Monday. The US –
along with Russia, China, the UK, and France – is a permanent member of the Security Council, meaning that resolutions cannot be passed if it exercises its “right to veto.” All other UNSC members voted in favor of the resolution on Monday. The representatives are seeking to invoke UN Resolution 377, known as the “Uniting for Peace” resolution, which is the only way to circumvent a Security Council veto. The resolution states that the assembly can call an emergency special session to consider a matter “with a view to making appropriate recommendations to members for collective measures,” if the Security Council fails to act.

Why Jesus Could Come Back Sooner Than You Think

Why Jesus Could Come Back Sooner Than You Think
(By Gary Curtis) I was recently scanning the spines of some of the books on my shelves dealing with eschatology, the study of the end times or the last days. I happened on a 1997 book titled The End by Ed Dobson.  I didn’t remember I had this book about predictive prophecy and pulled it out to scan and review for a few minutes. I discovered the front cover had a subtitle which “said it all”:  “Why Jesus Could Return by A.D. 2000.”  Now, two decades after the original publication date and nearly the same number of years
past the turn-of-century target date, this projected timing of Christ’s coming and the end of the world can be mocked (along with the other Y2K prognostications). However, these future realities cannot be ignored. With the current bellicose threats from the demented dictator of North Korea and his provocative testing of long-range missiles, which could potentially be fixed with nuclear warheads and reach most countries of the Pacific Rim—including highly populated parts of the United States, the world may be closer to “the end” than ever before.

Professing Christian Mother Sues Over ‘Religious Indoctrination’ in Louisiana Public School District
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed suit against a school district in Louisiana on behalf of a professing Christian mother who is unhappy that teachers, principals and others in the district have promoted Christianity during school hours and at school events.  “Since enrolling two of her daughters in the Webster Parish School District more than 12 years ago, Plaintiff Christy Cole has become
increasingly alarmed by the pervasive religious indoctrination to which students in the district are subject,” the suit reads. One of her daughters has since graduated and the other is still in high school. “Christy Cole believes her daughter and all students should be able to attend public school without exposure to government-sponsored religious practices and messages, and without harassment for their religious beliefs,” the complaint explains.

New children’s book portrays Santa Claus as gay and married to another man
On CNN’s New Day Sunday, the show devoted a four-minute segment to the new children’s book Santa’s Husband, which portrays Santa Claus as a gay man who gets married to another man. The segment included as guests the author, Daniel Kibblesmith, and illustrator Ashley Quach, with Kibblesmith recalling that he was partially inspired to write the book because of the complaints that are made each
year about a “war on Christmas.”  At 6:12 a.m. ET, CNN co-anchor Christi Paul plugged the interview: “There’s a new children’s book out this Christmas — takes us inside Santa’s wedding. We meet Santa’s husband David. We’re going to talk to the author and illustrator ahead.”  In the second plug at 6:51 a.m. ET, Paul and co-host Victor Blackwell vaguely admitted that some are “not so happy” about the book:

Rare ‘ghost snow tsunami’ wave caught on camera

Rare ‘ghost snow tsunami’ wave caught on camera
A photographer has captured a rare weather phenomenon that she’s described as a ‘ghost snow tsunami’.  The mirage happens when snow crystals, light and wind are perfectly aligned on the horizon.  Ariel McGlothin was hoping to capture some local wildlife in action when she went out to take some pictures in Kelly, Wyoming, but inadvertently witnessed an incredibly rare spectacle. Standing before a
huge wall of icy powder, a strange mirage began to form as the sun – aligned perfectly with the direction of the wind – began to highlight snow crystals moving in the cold wind, resembling a series of ghostly waves crashing against a shoreline. The display lasted for a few moments as the virtually translucent ‘waves’ continue to appear to flow forward, leaving 30-year-old Ariel with a conflicted feeling that she ‘needed to flee’ the seeming tsunami.

Former US Ambassador John Bolton warns “Trump must take action before Kim unleashes nuclear attack on US”
North Korea will soon be able to get “deliverable nuclear weapons” unless the United States ends its diplomatic approach, former US Ambassador John Bolton warned.  North Korea has been ramping up its aggressive rhetoric against the United States after leader Kim Jong-un kickstarted a war of words with Donald Trump. Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton said: “North Korea will get deliverable nuclear weapons.
That’s the point we are at. This is coming very soon unless we take action. “I think the fact that Secretary Tillerson is still talking about the possibility of negotiation with North Korea undermines the signal of strength that we are trying to show.” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US was “open” to holding diplomatic talks with Pyongyang to defuse the tension fueling fears of World War 3.

Dead Boy Returns From Afterlife to Tell His Mom About Heaven
“I didn’t see what he was yelling at. I didn’t see the ambulance coming, but I remember him yelling. That was the last thing I heard from him,” says Julie.  On a Sunday morning in 1997, Julie Kemp; her husband, Andy; and their 8-year-old son, Landon, were driving home from church when an ambulance returning to its station broadsided their car in an intersection. Andy died instantly. Rescuers stabilized Julie but did not initially realize there was a third passenger in the car.
Julie says, “They couldn’t see his body because of the damage that was done to the driver’s side of the car and Landon was sitting behind his dad. And when they saw Landon’s shoe, it took a deeper search for his body. When they pulled Landon out from the back of the car, he was not breathing. And they all started working on him right away to bring him back.” Landon was resuscitated and life-flighted to Carolina’s Medical Center. He died two more times that day, and both times, he was brought back to life. Doctors didn’t give Julie much hope for his survival.

Japan Building Missile Bases to Confront Rising Threat From China

Japan Building Missile Bases to Confront Rising Threat From China
Japan is building missile bases on islands off the coast of China in a bid to counter the rising threat from its communist neighbor.  The country’s military – which has long been restricted by its post-Second World War pacifist constitution – has been constructing anti-aircraft and anti-ship weapons on Ishigaki, 200 miles from eastern China and just off the coast of Taiwan. It is one of many islands in the Yaeyama archipelago to be garrisoned by the Japanese, with soldiers bringing new weapons and radar technology to the area.
The Japanese army – or Ground Self-Defense Force – told the Wall Street Journal it plans to deploy between 500 and 600 soldiers to Ishigaki to operate a missile system there. It comes after the country announced its intention to buy offensive air-to-surface missiles to counter North Korea’s rising military threat. Defence secretary Itsunori Onodera said the ministry intends to request a special budget for the fiscal year starting April 2018 to purchase long-range cruise missiles to be deployed on fighter jets.

“Possessed” airline passenger causes mid-air emergency on Air China flight
An airline passenger who claimed she was “possessed” caused an Air China plane to turn around after take-off.  The female traveller, in her 50s, sparked a mid-air emergency when she fainted shortly after flight CA 4102 from Beijing to Chengdu departed today. Passengers reportedly noticed the woman had passed out about 20 minutes after taking off and alerted cabin crew. The captain decided to return to
Beijing to land so that the woman could receive medical attention. One passenger told Pear Video : “Her pulse was also very weak, so they gave her an oxygen mask. Then she woke up shortly.”   The woman is said to have appeared unstable when she woke up and is alleged to have shouted: ‘No! Don’t touch me! Don’t pull me!’ to flight attendants. Video captured on board the plane shows the woman being spoken to for about six people, including medical staff, during attempts to calm her.

6 False Teachings Bringing Deceptive Darkness Into the Church
(By Leading the Way) Since that very moment in the Garden of Eden when a single bite shattered the harmony of the world, man has tried to make his own way, be his own master, and set up his own kingdom. It’s nothing new. Nevertheless, if we want to be faithful followers of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in this day and age, we must be alert and ready to boldly stand against the spirit of the age that seeks to modify the message
of Christ, undermine His power to set us free from sin, repaint Christ’s picture to make Him more acceptable to a wayward generation and rewrite the gospel to remove the offense of the cross. For the last 2,000 years, the church has been plagued with heresy after heresy seeking to tame the gospel, and today is no different. Here are just a few of the popular beliefs in our current culture that threaten to infiltrate the church:

Jewish Woman Comes Face to Face with an Angel, Gives Life to Christ
Alyce Merritt grew up as a devout Jew who loved the Torah and wanted little to do with the Christian faith.  “All I knew was that Jesus was the false God of the gentiles because that’s kind of what was beaten into our heads since we were very young,” Merritt told CBN News. “I thought actually that he was Catholic or Italian because of everything I’d been told and seen on T.V.”  “It wasn’t until college did I have a supernatural encounter,” she continued.  After graduating from high school, Merritt moved out of her childhood home, went to college, and began working at a frozen yogurt shop.
That’s when she met a customer who would change her life forever. “A man who was literally about seven feet tall with piercing blue eyes one day came in. He had a white Bible that was huge. It was about the size of a family Bible and he started telling me the gospel from this Bible and that Jesus was actually Jewish,” Merritt said. “For the first time in my life I was told that Jesus was a Jewish savior and that he was my Messiah.”

New Facebook facial recognition spots you even if you’re not tagged
The world’s largest social network has just rolled out a new feature of its facial recognition technology that will notify users when someone has uploaded a photo of them even if they haven’t been tagged in it on Facebook.  The new feature sprang into action Tuesday. Facebook says it will “help people better manage their identity” on the platform “using face recognition.” Though not all of the network’s over 2 billion users will be able to avail of the new feature as those in the European Union and Canada are
excluded due to privacy laws which prohibit Facebook’s use of facial recognition. Under EU law, personal data can only be gathered legally under strict conditions, for a legitimate purpose. Furthermore, “persons or organizations which collect and manage your personal information must protect it from misuse and must respect certain rights of the data owners which are guaranteed by EU law.” Once Facebook identifies an image it thinks your face is in, it will send a notification to a new Photo Review feature, much like the Timeline Review feature when someone tags you in a post.

9-Year-Old Boy Has a Vision of an Asteroid Hitting the Atlantic and a Nuclear War Involving the United States

9-Year-Old Boy Has a Vision of an Asteroid Hitting the Atlantic and a Nuclear War Involving the United States
ATTENTION: The following article was originally published on April 2017
(By Michael Snyder) Did God give a 9-year-old boy a vision of the future of America? Recently, my wife pulled me aside and strongly urged me to watch part of an amazing video that she had found on YouTube. I was quite tired at the time, but I agreed to watch it because I could tell from my wife’s expression that she had found something special.  And without a doubt, what I am about to share with you does appear to be extraordinary. A grandmother known as “A Daughter of The Highest King” on YouTube came across a dry erase board that her 9-year-old grandson had been drawing on, and the things that he had been
drawing were so unusual that she decided to ask him about them. Well, it turns out that this little boy had been trying to draw a picture of things that were shown to him in a vision. When he received this vision, he was in bed, but he was not asleep at the time. He told his grandmother that in his vision he was standing in space and looking down at the earth, and it appears that he may have been shown things that are coming in the future. If you would like to watch the entire video, you can find it on YouTube here.  When I started watching this little boy describe his vision, one thing immediately jumped out at me.

Scientists create an AI that can detect deception in the courtroom

Scientists create an AI that can detect deception in the courtroom
From a raise of an eyebrow to a tilt of the head, we use several micro-movements when we’re lying without even knowing it. Now, scientists have developed an artificial intelligence system that can detect these micro-expressions and detect if you’re lying – and it’s already ‘significantly better’ than humans. The researchers hope their system could soon be used in courtrooms to tell if people on the stand are telling the truth.
The AI system, called Deception Analysis and Reasoning Engine (DARE), has been developed by researchers from the University of Maryland and Dartmouth College. To develop DARE, the researchers trained the system using videos of people in the courtroom. In their study, published in arXiv, the researchers, led by Dr. Zhe Wu, said: ‘On the vision side, our system uses classifiers trained on low-level video features which predict human micro-expressions.’

Did Trump’s Jerusalem declaration fulfill Ben-Gurion ‘prophecy’?
Dec 19, 2017 | 0  |     
Did Trump’s Jerusalem declaration fulfill Ben-Gurion ‘prophecy’?
Donald Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital came on the exact same date on the Hebrew calendar that Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, 48 years earlier, just a year after Israel’s founding, announced that it would be so. Rabbi Benjamin Blech, professor of Talmud at Yeshiva University and an internationally recognized educator, religious leader and lecturer, did the calculation and found that both announcements were made on the Hebrew calendar date of Kislev 19 – Ben-Gurion’s in 1949 and Trump’s earlier this month.
“[W]hen I looked at the Hebrew calendar, I realized something far more profound than a political statement,” Blech wrote in Aish.com. “Rabbinic scholars long ago taught us that with the end of prophecy, after the close of the Bible, God has another way in which to communicate with mankind. It is by way of the secret of time – the linkage of events occurring on exactly the same date that makes clear we are meant to understand divine messages. Coincidence, it’s been famously said, is God’s way of choosing to remain anonymous. In other words, it’s God’s way of testing our ability to concede the Almighty’s role in directing the remarkable twists and turns of history.”

ISIS claims it has hacked US Army and St Dept, Sending assassins to employees’ homes
ISIS has claimed it has hacked the US Army and State Department and is sending assassins to employees’ homes in a gruesome new propaganda video.  The video released by ISIS hacking group Islamic Ghosts of the Caliphate also declares: ‘Muslims will return to being masters of the world and kings of the earth.
‘The Islamic State did not start the war against you and you will pay a great price as your sons will return to you as amputees or in coffins.   As scenes of war, bombings and terror attacks flash up, the voice continues: ‘You will pay a price as you walk along your streets fearing Muslims. We will attack your homeland – you will not even feel secure in your bedrooms.’

Baby Born From Record Breaking 24-Year-Old Frozen Embryo…
A Tennessee couple has welcomed a baby girl who grew from the longest-frozen embryo to ever result in a birth.  Benjamin and Tina Gibson’s daughter, Emma Wren, weighed 6 pounds, 8 ounces when she came into the world on November 25. Prior to being transferred into Tina’s uterus at the National Embryo Donation Center in Knoxville earlier this year, the embryo Emma grew from had been cryo-preserved for more than 24 years, according to a news release.
And, according to research staff at the University of Tennessee Preston Medical Library, that makes her the all-time record holder for the longest-frozen embryo to result in birth. The National Embryo Donation Center says it has helped produce more pregnancies through embryo adoption, nearly 700, than any other organization or clinic. Interestingly, Emma’s embryo was frozen on Oct. 14, 1992, when Tina was just a year-and-a-half old.

Japan could be struck by Mega-Quake and Tsunami within next 30 years
A major earthquake that would trigger a giant destructive tsunami could hit the Japanese coast in the next 30 years, a Tokyo research panel has warned in its latest report, citing a high degree of possibility in projections.   The Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion said there is a chance of a devastating earthquake with a magnitude exceeding 8.8 striking off the eastern coast of Hokkaido island, projecting the possibility to be between 7 and 40 percent. “I hope disaster preparations are
reviewed based on the possibility that a super-gigantic quake, like the one that struck the Tohoku region, could also strike Hokkaido,” Asahi Shimbun quoted a seismology professor at the University of Tokyo, Naoshi Hirata, who headed the panel, as saying. In March 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit Japan’s main island of Honshu, becoming the most powerful quake recorded in the country. Subsequent tsunami waves reached up to 40 meters (130ft) in height and crashed some 10km (6 miles) inland.

Pakistan considers dumping dollar for yuan in trade with China
The government of Pakistan is considering a proposal to start using the Chinese yuan in trade with China, according to the Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, as quoted by Pakistan’s English-language daily Dawn. “We are examining the use of yuan instead of the US dollar for trade between the two countries,” the minister told the media after the official launch of the Long Term Plan (LTP) for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).  Bilateral trade between Pakistan and China was worth $13.8 billion in 2015
to 2016, a decade after the countries signed a free trade agreement. Pakistan will continue to use the rupee domestically, according to Iqbal. The LTP includes cooperation between the countries in energy, information network infrastructure, road and rail connections, trade and industrial parks, tourism, agriculture, and poverty alleviation. The plan will be implemented in three phases, the first ending in 2020, followed by another in 2025, with completion in 2030.

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: In 2018, we will see a black hole for the first time ever
We’re about to see — for the very first time — the event horizon of a black hole, proving beyond any last vestige of doubt that Einstein’s interstellar monsters are real. And here’s what it will look like.  While astronomers have long seen the fallout of the presence of black holes on the stars and gas clouds around them, none have ever actually stared directly into its abyss. But they’re hoping to, soon.  What we’re
expecting to see in 2018 is the silhouette of the disc of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our galaxy, burned starkly against a background of superheated plasma being tossed about its enormous maw. “One of the really nice things about this is taking an image of black hole event horizon has been beyond our reach for so long that it’s been a pleasant surprise to build upon these existing technologies and capture an image so soon,” says Monash University astrophysicist Professor Michael Brown.

Thousands Of People All Over The World Are Converting To ‘Jediism’

Thousands Of People All Over The World Are Converting To ‘Jediism’
(By Michael Snyder) Yes, there are actually people out there that want to be a Jedi so badly that they have made “Jediism” their official religion.  As you will see below, a new documentary entitled “American Jedi” has just been released that examines this phenomenon, and when I first heard about this I decided that I wanted to learn more.  So I did some research, and I discovered that there is actually an official website for “the Temple of the Jedi Order” that bills itself as the “international church of Jediism”.  And even though this
“faith” is entirely based on fictitious characters, the IRS actually granted tax exempt status to the Temple of the Jedi Order in 2015.  I was seven years old when Star Wars first came out, and it definitely had a major impact on me.  But even as a child, I understood that it was just a movie. Unfortunately, there are some people out there that are so drawn to “the Jedi Order” that they actually want to make it a religious faith.  The following comes from the Huffington Post…

Does the Book of Daniel Hold the Key to the Exact Year Jesus Was Born?

Does the Book of Daniel Hold the Key to the Exact Year Jesus Was Born?
(By Ron Allen) Most Christians don’t know that Christmas was set on Dec. 25, the ancient Roman winter solstice date, to displace a pagan holiday celebrating the birth of a pagan false “seed of woman” god. While the winter solstice is an important element in the celestial signs of Christ’s Advent, careful study of the Scriptures, history and astronomy prove that He could not have been born on Dec. 25.   The Bible does not tell us when Jesus was born. However, the search for His birthdate can begin with strong scriptural evidence about the year of His birth.
We know from Luke 3:23 that Jesus was about 30 when He began His ministry. The prophet Daniel tells us the year of Christ’s anointing would come in 69 7s, or 483 years, after the decree which sent Ezra to Jerusalem in 458 BC. (Dan. 9:25) Doing the math, and remembering that there is no year “0”, Daniel’s prophecy says Jesus would begin His ministry in A.D. 26. This year is backed up by two dates from Scripture. John the Baptist began his ministry in the 15th year of Tiberius, A.D. 25 (Luke 3:1), and Jesus cleared the temple the first time 46 years after Herod began renovating it (John 2:20) in 20 B.C. (according to Josephus), or A.D. 27. Thus many Bible scholars believe that A.D. 26 is the year Jesus began his ministry. If He was 30 years old, remembering again that there is no year 0, He would have been born in 5 B.C.

Saudi Arabia threatens invasion of Iran in shock propaganda as MidEast on brink of war
Saudi Arabia has threatened invasion of Iran in a bizarre propaganda film showing a full-scale military conquest of the Islamic Republic.   State-media published a short film depicting a war between the two countries, showing Saudi forces storming the Iranian capital Tehran. This extreme threat comes amid renewed tensions between the two states amid growing fears of war in the Middle East.
Saudi Arabia and Iran are locked in a power struggle in the region, each seeking to be the dominant power. Pro-government newspapers shared the short film as the “operational reality” of Saudi armed forces. Iran has been accused of aiding rebel groups who have attacked the kingdom, and is expanding its influences throughout the Middle East.

Space agency breaks silence on claim it is ‘hiding the truth’
NASA has finally addressed the long-running conspiracy theory that it has found alien life but the evidence is kept hidden from the public. For years so-called alien truth seekers have made staggering claims that evidence of aliens has been found on the Moon, Mars, and elsewhere in the solar system. However, they claim NASA, at the request of the US Government, keeps it hushed up amid fears over the
impact the public knowledge would have on religion and the rule of law, possibly leading to anarchy. NASA, which is at the centre of many conspiracy theories, including claims Apollo Moon landings were faked, usually avoids responding to them, amid fears it may just fuel further similar claims. However, a top scientist at the agency has now addressed the furore head on.

Ex-New Age Expert Exposes the Occult Themes Hidden in the Super Bowl
ATTENTION: The following article was originally posted in February 2017
Steven Bancarz used to be enamored with the occult. He actively participated in astral projection, Christ-consciousness and more.  But now he’s out to expose the New Age and the presence of the occult in seemingly mundane events, like the Super Bowl. Sunday night, the internet was abuzz with talk of Lady Gaga’s halftime show. While many people praised the performance, Bancarz saw something malicious beneath the surface.
He posted his analysis on Facebook: Pentagrams lining the stage at the Superbowl halftime show. Cross-dressing men with makeup dancing on stage. Flames, black clothing, 666 hand signs over the eyes. Typical halftime show. I have an honest question for non-Christian truthers and political conspiracy activists who are Facebook friends with me and are reading this status. Because I am confused and want to know what your worldview is.

Ban on Making Lethal Viruses Lifted…What could go wrong?
More than 3 years after imposing a moratorium on U.S. funding for certain studies with dangerous viruses, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) today lifted this so-called “pause” and announced a new plan for reviewing such research. But federal officials haven’t decided the fate of a handful of studies on influenza and the MERS virus that were put on hold in October 2014.  Two investigators whose controversial research on the deadly H5N1 avian influenza virus are among 11 studies on hold welcomed the end of the pause.
“This NIH decision allows us to move forward,” said virologist Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, by email.  NIH officials believe that the pending studies are probably outdated and that scientists will want to submit new proposals. The new process, says NIH director Francis Collins, “will help to facilitate the safe, secure, and responsible conduct of this type of research.” Critics of the studies, meanwhile, are withholding judgment until they see how the review process plays out.

Leading AI expert claims Robots and humans can make babies creating new hybrid species
Humans and robots can make babies together using genetic engineering to create a new hybrid species from skin cells, a leading AI expert will announce in a groundbreaking speech.  Dr David Levy, a world-leading artificial intelligence researcher, will explain how the genetic information of cells can be manipulated to create a baby with human and robot DNA in his keynote speech at the Third International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots.
Speaking at the conference in London on Wednesday, December 20, Dr. Levy will explain how advancements in cell biology and bio-robotics have led to his extraordinary conclusion. Ahead of his speech, Daily Star Online can exclusively reveal extracts of his radical research paper, titled “Can Robots and Babies Make Humans Together?” In his conclusions, Dr. Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots, will argue that “it is possible” for humans and robots to make babies given “recent progress in stem cell research and artificial chromosomes”.

Missile intercepted over Saudi Arabia capital seconds before striking royal palace
A missile fired at Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh was shot down moments before it hit a royal palace today. Saudi air defenses intercepted a ballistic missile fired towards the city, Saudi-owned channel al-Arabiya reported in a news flash quoting a Saudi-led military coalition official.  The coalition is battling the armed Houthi movement in neighboring Yemen. A ballistic missile was launched at the Saudi capital,
a Houthi spokesman said. Mohammed Abdussalam said on Twitter that a Volcano 2-H ballistic missile was fired towards al-Yamama royal palace. Bloomberg reporter Vivian Nereim tweeted: “Loud boom heard in central Riyadh – big enough that we felt it shake our tower.” The Saudi Ministry of Culture and Information tweeted: “Coalition forces confirm intercepting an Iranian-Houthi missile targeting south of Riyadh. “There are no reported casualties at this time.

Why Some Believers Experience More Spiritual Warfare Than Others

Why Some Believers Experience More Spiritual Warfare Than Others
(By Joseph Mattera) There are some believers who falsely believe that if they have a lot of faith they will not undergo any suffering, severe tests or satanic attacks. Nothing could be further from the truth! Actually, the opposite is true.  For example, in the book of Job chapters 1 and 2, God actually asks Satan if he considered His servant Job. Hence, God brought Job to Satan’s attention, not because Job was in sin, but because Job was the greatest servant of God on the earth at that time (read Job 1:6-12; 2:3-6).  Furthermore, Acts 19:15 illustrates how Paul the apostle was not only known in heaven, but also in hell! He had their attention!
First Peter 5:8-9 teaches that Satan roams the earth seeking someone to devour, which also goes along with the Job narrative (Job 1:7). When we read the context of all these passages, especially in regards to the satanic focus on both Paul and Job, we can come to the conclusion that the devil’s main focus is to thwart, divert, distract and disarm the servants of God who are promoting the rule of God on the earth as it is in heaven. Heaven is the only realm in the universe where everything is perfectly aligned under King Jesus, since the devil was displaced from there (Rev. 12:7-12).

New Reason To Fear Google and Facebook And It’s Not From Who You May Think

New Reason To Fear Google and Facebook And It’s Not From Who You May Think
The threats to freedom of thought aren’t coming from the government these days, but from corporate America, says a columnist in the Wall Street Journal.  Kind of a groupthink, which Psychology Today speaks of as the result of members of a group valuing “harmony and coherence over accurate analysis and critical evaluation.” “It causes individual members of the group to unquestioningly follow the word of the leader and it strongly discourages any disagreement with the consensus,” the group explains. It’s
Mark Epstein who is noting Google and Facebook account for 84 percent of all digital advertising outside China. This, he claims, gives the companies enormous leverage to censor content. Indeed, websites which are reliant on Google’s ad revenue have even removed articles after receiving warnings from the company, according to the Journal.  The dependence on Google ad revenue is also creating perverse incentives for “clickbait” and draining traditional news producers of the revenue needed to invest in serious reporting at news sites.

US is ready to “take names” of its critics, America’s ambassador to the UN has warned
The US is ready to “take names” of its critics, America’s ambassador to the UN has warned, ahead of a GA session to debate Washington’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and move its embassy there. The US is ratcheting up its rhetoric and its threats in defending the December 6 decision to move its Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem from global indignation. Even staunch American
allies, including the UK and France, have condemned the new American approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which, for five decades, has focused on a potential two-state solution with Jerusalem as a shared capital. On Monday, the US used its veto power to block a United Nations Security Council resolution that called on all states to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions in Jerusalem.

RUMORS OF WAR: China Must Prepare for Imminent War With North Korea

RUMORS OF WAR: China Must Prepare for Imminent War With North Korea
It isn’t only the United States that could soon see itself engaged in a deadly conflict with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. China also is at risk of an imminent war with North Korea, warned some of China’s most prestigious national security experts at a conference in Beijing this week. “Conditions on the peninsula now make for the biggest risk of a war in decades,” said Shi Yinhong, director of the Center on American Studies at Renmin University of China in Beijing and an adviser to the State Council of China on diplomacy issues since February 2011, during the conference. “North Korea is a time bomb. We can
only delay the explosion, hoping that by delaying it, a time will come to remove the detonator,” he said, reported the South China Morning Post Saturday. Wang Hongguang, former deputy commander of the Nanjing Military Region, an important military region, warned that a war could begin as soon as March, when South Korea and the United States are slated to hold annual military drills. “It is a highly dangerous period,” Wang said during the conference. “Northeast China should mobilize defenses for war.”

26 dead, 23 missing, 15k+ stranded and 90k evacuated as cyclone strikes the Philippines
Floods and landslides triggered by slow-moving Tropical Cyclone “Kai-Tak,” locally known as Urduja, killed at least 26 people and left another 23 missing in the Philippines, authorities said Sunday, December 17, 2017. More floods and landslides are possible in the days ahead. Tropical Depression “Urduja” formed December 12 near Palau and stalled with its center just off the coast of Sorsogon –
Northern Samar area before it strengthened into a tropical storm December 14, the 26th named storm of the 2017 Pacific typhoon season. However, as is often the case with such storms in this region, Urduja was already causing floods and landslides even before it reached tropical storm status. The prime factor for the deluge it caused was its slow-moving nature.

Twitter rolls out new ‘hate-speech’ guidelines
The day has finally come. Twitter rolled out new guidelines Monday for “hate speech,” and many Trump supporters think they will be the first to go.  According to the new rules on “abuse and hateful conduct,” users may not “promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”
Users also are prohibited from using “hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header,” and there is to be no targeted harassment toward a “protected” category. What counts as “hateful” is up for debate, and the groups Twitter is relying on to make that determination have a strong left-wing bias. In 2016, Twitter unveiled a “Trust & Safety Council” consisting of 40 “organizations and experts,” many of which are frequent critics of conservatives and Christians.

5 Terrible Reasons Intercessors Don’t Attend Prayer Meetings
Dec 18, 2017 | 0  |     
5 Terrible Reasons Intercessors Don’t Attend Prayer Meetings
(By John Burton) God is raising up passionate people of fervent and strategic prayer. Why aren’t they flocking to church prayer meetings?  I’m a prayer freak. I met God in the prayer room and I’ve experienced the shock and awe of his glory there many times over the last 27 years. I can’t separate the ideas of salvation, being a Christian and knowing God from a vibrant life of burning prayer. For me, if there’s no unction to pray, everything else is weakened, compromised and at risk. The thought that someone wouldn’t want to pray
causes me to scream inside. The wonders of God are revealed in very unique ways in the prayer room. If God is awakening people to the power of prayer, why aren’t the prayer rooms full? If there is a growing remnant of people who yearn to encounter God and to contend for the passions of his heart night and day, why do pastors have such a hard time compelling them to come together for corporate intercession? It’s a great question. I believe I have a handful of answers.

Ancient Biblical city ‘destroyed by earthquake 1,400 years ago’ found intact underwater
Archaeologists have uncovered “mind-blowing” architecture almost perfectly intact from the ancient Biblical city of Corinth – despite being wiped out by a devastating earthquake 1,400 years ago.  The Greek city, which was rebuilt in 44BC by Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, holds major significance for Christians. Jesus’s disciple Paul is said to have visited there and wrote two letters about his time in Corinth – featured in the New Testament. Just days ago, another group of archaeologists in Italy were
amazed to discover the historic resort of Baiae in perfect condition. And new underwater excavations of Corinth’s harbor at the port of Lechaion have discovered wooden foundations preserved so well that they look new. Roman artifacts including fishing lines and hooks, wooden pulleys and ceramics from Tunisia and Turkey were also found. Experts also think they have found an ancient lighthouse – depicted on coins from that time – and another monument.

Geologist Says Unusual Discovery in Antarctica Confirms Biblical Flood Account
A Christian geologist with a leading creation science organization says the recent discovery of fossilized tree stumps in Antarctica confirms the Bible’s account of the Great Flood in Genesis.  Writing on the Institute for Creation Research’s (ICR) website, Dr. Tim Clarey describes the recent discovery of of the well-preserved stumps. “The trees were found in Antarctica’s Transantarctic Mountains and include a mix of evergreens, deciduous trees, and gingkoes,” he says. “This discovery should be no surprise to
those who take Genesis as literal history.” University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee geologists Erik Gulbranson and John Isbell found the fossilized trees while conducting research on the ice-covered continent. In total, they collected fragments from 13 trees.  “People have known about the fossils in Antarctica since the 1910-12 Robert Falcon Scott expedition,” Gulbranson said. “However, most of Antarctica is still unexplored. Sometimes, you might be the first person to ever climb a particular mountain.”

Mysterious Blob of Hot Rock Building Up Under Northeast…

Mysterious Blob of Hot Rock Building Up Under Northeast…
A vast mass of hot rock is welling up underneath Vermont and extending into other subterranean regions below New England, new research shows. Scientists used a network of thousands of seismic measurement devices in the largest geological study of its kind, detecting the enormous blob upwelling under Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts – and possibly elsewhere.
“The upwelling we detected is like a hot air balloon, and we infer that something is rising up through the deeper part of our planet under New England,” says geophysicist Vadim Levin from Rutgers University – New Brunswick. Since New England doesn’t have any active volcanoes, the huge build-up is thought to be a geologically recent phenomenon, although in this case that means it could have slowly but steadily been growing for tens of millions of years.

U.S. vetoes U.N. Jerusalem resolution, designed to reverse Trump recognition
The United States vetoed a United Nations Security Council draft resolution Monday that was proposed by Egypt and called for the reversal of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The U.S. vetoed it in a 14-1 vote, which meant the resolution failed.   The vote was held in response to Mr. Trump’s announcement earlier this month that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.  After the vote, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the U.S. does not veto
resolutions lightly and that this was her first veto — that it stood for “American sovereignty” and its role in the Middle East peace process. Haley told the Security Council that she has hope the peace process is not dead. “Our hand remains extended to both parties … We call on all countries that share this commitment to learn the hard lessons of the past and work to bring Israel and the Palestinian people in good faith to the peace table,” she said.

Amtrak train derails in Washington state, Multiple fatalities’ reported
An inaugural ride on Amtrak’s new line meant to speed train service in Washington state turned deadly Monday after a train carrying more than 80 people derailed outside of Tacoma — causing several train cars to tumble from an overpass onto an interstate highway, officials said.  “Multiple fatalities” were reported after Amtrak train 501 derailed about 7:30 a.m. along Interstate 5 as it was leaving the new
Tacoma station, Pierce County Sheriff’s Spokesman Ed Troyer said. He did not specify the number of people killed. The train was traveling southbound from Seattle when it derailed. Police previously said several cars were struck by the Amtrak train cars, injuring multiple drivers on the highway. No motorists’ deaths were reported, according to Pierce County officials.

Atlanta Airport Blackout Sends Grim Message to Terrorists

Atlanta Airport Blackout Sends Grim Message to Terrorists
If a terrorist wanted to find the most vulnerable point in America’s airport network they could not have hoped for a better guide than what just happened at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson.  Just after 1 p.m. Sunday the whole airport, the world’s busiest, went dark. Thousands of flights were disrupted. For many hours nobody in authority attempted to explain—or even seemed able to explain—what had happened.
Just imagine this is a classic plan for phase one of a terrorist attack: Render the target blind. None of the defenses are operational. Thousands of people are trapped in restricted space without directions about how they can find an exit. As chaos spreads nobody knows who turn to for information. The communications blackout is as complete as the power blackout. Given this situation, a small band of suicide bombers could roam freely and commit mayhem and massacre on an unprecedented scale.

Chick-fil-A steps up and feeds thousands stranded during airport blackout

Chick-fil-A steps up and feeds thousands stranded during airport blackout
Chick-fil-A, famed for never opening on Sundays and will likely never be, has made an exception.  The fast-food chain is stepping in to feed passengers left affected by the Atlanta airport blackout, according to the City of Atlanta. They’ll be served at the Georgia International Convention Center, where they are able to stay overnight, which is a pretty nice consolation given what some of these people have gone through.  It’s a remarkable aberration from the company’s policy on Sunday trading hours, rooted in founder
Truett Cathy’s devout Christian beliefs. The policy remains the same at the Chick-fil-A in the newly opened Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Its main tenant, the Atlanta Falcons, will only play one regular season game that doesn’t fall on a Sunday. As of 11:30 p.m. EST, there were 2,000 meals served to passengers, according to Atlanta’s mayor Kasim Reed. See, this is how bad it has to get for Chick-Fil-A to open on a Sunday.

South Korea experiences earliest ice formation on the Han River in 71 years

South Korea experiences earliest ice formation on the Han River in 71 years
Kim In-sik, head of the Seoul Weather Station, stood on the Han River Bridge and looked down on the river for about two and a half hours since 5 a.m. He slapped his lap. At the dawn’s light, it was definitely ice on the shining surface of the river. After two nights amid severe cold weather, the day set a record for the earliest ice formation on the Han River since 1946. A five-day cold spell has led to ice formation on the Han River one month earlier than expected. The Korea Meteorological Administration said that the
earliest ice formation of this winter was observed at the Han River Bridge at the dawn of Friday. The ice was formed between second and fourth piers on the Noryangjin side. This has been the first ice formation on the Han River before December 15 in 71 years since December 12, 1946. Freezing of the Han River occurred 29 days earlier than the usual (January 13) and even 42 days earlier than last year (January 26). The biggest attributing factor is the unusual cold wave that hit the Korean Peninsula in the middle of December.

Queensland, Australia Experiences Coldest Summer in 100 Years

Queensland, Australia Experiences Coldest Summer in 100 Years
While sweat and Queensland summer go hand-in-hard, people in the state’s west are reaching for cardigans as overnight December temperatures break record lows.   From Birdsville to the Gulf of Carpentaria, temperatures dropped to 11 degrees Celsius below average – a phenomenon forecasters describe as “very unusual”. “I’ve been forecasting for a few decades now and I can’t really remember anything quite this spectacular as far as dry and cool at this time of year,” said Bureau of Meteorology forecaster David Bernard.
“It’s the sort of thing we often see in winter which usually leads to really cold winter nights, but we don’t often see it in December.”  Mount Isa had its lowest overnight December temperate ever on record at 12 degrees Celsius – 11C degrees below average.  “Burketown yesterday had a minimum of 17.7C which was the lowest they’d seen up there since 1920, but that was eclipsed today with 16C, and that’s the coldest December morning since 1907,” Mr Bernard said.  “Richmond yesterday was 11.8C which was the lowest there in December since 1909.”

Palm Springs Becomes First City Council in Nation to Be All Homosexual, Bisexual or Transgender
The City of Palm Springs, California has sworn in a man who identifies as a woman, as well as a woman who identifies as bisexual, making its city council all-“LGBT” as its other three members identify as homosexual.  Lisa Middleton, a man who identifies as a woman (pictured), and Christy Holstege, an attorney who identifies as bisexual, were both sworn in on Wednesday after being elected last month.
They join Mayor Robert Moon and Councilman Geoff Kors, who both are “married” to men, and Councilman J.R. Roberts, who likewise identifies as homosexual. Holstege and Middleton won with 30 percent of the vote, as compared to the 13 percent received by the nearest candidate. They replace Ginny Foat and Chris Mills, who decided not to run for reelection, according to CBS News.

DEVELOPING: Power outage cripples Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport
A power outage at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world’s busiest airport, is leaving thousands of passengers stranded and planes grounded.  Georgia Power has confirmed they have crews in the field working to determine the cause of the problem. The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a ground stop for flights to Atlanta, meaning that planes are being held at their departure
airports, according to a tweet on Hartsfield-Jackson’s verified Twitter account. The airport also posted a statement on Twitter saying, “A power outage has impacted several areas in the airport. #ATL officials are working to remedy the situation. Additional updates to come.” Brittny Dettro said she was waiting to board a flight from Atlanta to Milwaukee when the power went out in Terminal B early Sunday afternoon. She shot this image at 1:10 p.m. ET.
