DEVELOPING: Trump Considering Moves to Break Up Big Banks…
MAY 1, 2017
President Donald Trump said he’s actively considering a break up of giant Wall Street banks, giving a push to efforts to revive a Depression-era law separating consumer and investment banking. “I’m looking at that right now,” Trump said of breaking up banks in a 30-minute Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News. “There’s some people that want to go back to the old system, right? So we’re going to look at that.”
Trump also said he’s open to increasing the U.S. gas tax to fund infrastructure development, in a further sign that policies unpopular with the Republican establishment are under consideration in the White House. He described higher gas taxes as acceptable to truckers — “I have one friend who’s a big trucker,” he said — as long as the proceeds are dedicated to improving U.S. highways.

LGBT Flag Seen Displayed at Billy Graham’s Wheaton College
MAY 1, 2017
(Reported By Todd Starnes) There’s a controversy brewing at one of the nation’s most prominent Christian colleges. It seems someone posted a gay pride flag in the dining hall at Wheaton College. The mother of a Wheaton student sent me a photograph. “When the gay pride flag flies at your Christian college, it is a direct attack on the Word of God; it’s shameful,” the parent told me.
She asked that she not be identified, and I’ve obliged. “Wheaton has compromised with truth long ago and fears the wrath of media and gay students more than they fear the Lord God,” she said. Wheaton College released a statement admitting that someone had posted the gay pride flag without permission—but it has since been taken down. “The flag, which had been placed among a display of international flags that hang throughout the dining hall, was immediately removed from the display,” the statement read.

Satanic Temple to Erect ‘Luciferian Light’ Memorial to Dead Soldiers in Minnesota
MAY 1, 2017
The Satanic Temple has been granted permission to erect a memorial to soldiers killed in action beside a Christian memorial at Belle Plaine’s Veterans Memorial Park in Minnesota. The Star Tribune reported on Saturday that city leaders initially decided in January to remove a Christian memorial featuring a soldier kneeling before a cross and a Bible, fearing a lawsuit from atheists.
City residents protested against the removal, however, which led officials to designate an area in the park as a “free speech zone,” allowing other religions and organizations to erect their own temporary memorials. The Satanic Temple, headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, has since said it’s planning to put up its own memorial, described as a “black cube, inscribed with inverted pentagrams and crowned by an upturned helmet.”

What Will Turkish President Erdogan’s New Powers Mean for Christians?
MAY 1, 2017
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s major referendum victory last, which gave him sweeping new powers, has prompted concerns about what the future will hold for persecuted Christians and other minorities there.Burak Bekdil, an Ankara-based columnist who has has been writing on the developments in Turkey for the Gatestone Institute, an international policy council and think tank, told The Christian Post in an interview on Thursday that Erdogan has
capitalized on a “Crescent vs. Crusaders theme” that made him popular among the country’s conservative and nationalist masses. “This collective hysteria fuels xenophobia that is already a powerful phenomenon in Turkey. Non-Muslims, often targets by nationalist/Islamist groups, will now have reason to worry more,” Bekdil told CP. He suggested that life will be more difficult for anyone in Turkey who dissents against the president, Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Are you ready for “Lab-Grown Meat” Coming to Supermarket Shelves Soon?
MAY 1, 2017
If this Silicon Valley food-tech startup has its way, its lab-grown meat—which includes chicken, duck and beef—will be on a supermarket shelf near you within the next five years. “[We’re] trying to put products on the shelves by 2021/2022,” Uma Valeti, Memphis Meats co-founder and CEO, tells FOX Business. In March, the company announced that it created the “world’s first chicken strip from animal cells,” following their animal-free meatball debut in 2016. Lab-grown beef was previously developed in 2012 by a group of Dutch scientists.

“Essentially, we are taking a number of animal cells, giving them clean and nutritious food and then we watch them grow into a muscle. We harvest that muscle and then cook it,” Valeti says. The whole process from start to finish takes about four to six weeks, depending on the texture. Valeti says the company’s current main goal is to raise capital and lower their production costs, in order to quickly bring the product to market.

Tornado Rips Apart Texas Church — 45 People Inside Left Totally Unscathed
MAY 1, 2017
A deadly series of tornadoes swept through Texas, Arkansas and Missouri over the weekend, killing more than a dozen people and leaving destruction in their paths, and the impact at one church near Dallas, Texas, is creating quite a bit of buzz. St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church was among the buildings that were dramatically impacted when a tornado ripped through the town of Emory on Saturday.
But while the roof and walls of the church building were torn off and “both ends of the building were blown out,” as Peyton Low, the Diocese of Tyler’s director of public affairs told media, not one of the 45 people inside were injured. There reportedly wasn’t even a scratch on any of the adults or children huddled inside.

Persecution in Iran Resulting in Explosion of Church Growth!
MAY 1, 2017
The irony is stark: One of the worst countries in the world for Christians to be living in is also the country where the Church is growing the fastest. That country is the Islamic Republic of Iran, which is listed as the eighth worst Christian-persecuting country in the world on the 2017 Open Doors USA World Watch list. But now, Iran has gained the distinction of being the leading country in the world where the church is growing and influencing the region for Christ, according to the Christian persecution watchdog.
Last year the mission research organization Operation World listed Iran as having a 19.6 percent rise in its Christian population annually — more than any other country in the world, according to Mission Network News. Todd Nettleton with The Voice of the Martyrs, USA described the irony of it all on the group’s persecution blog. He noted that the Ayatollah Khomeini, the radical Islamic leader who took power in Iran in 1979, turned out to be “the greatest evangelist we’ve had in Iran.”

Pastor Greg Laurie Praying America Isn’t Destroyed By North Korea, Potentially Fulfilling Bible Prophecy
MAY 2, 2017
Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, has spoken out about the threat of nuclear war between the United States and North Korea, and analyzed how it all fits into End Times prophecy in the Bible. “As you know, the conflict with this rogue nation has escalated dramatically in recent days and even hours,” Laurie said in a Facebook video on Monday, referring to the hostile rhetoric of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Laurie argued that Kim’s threat to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons “can’t be dismissed or taken lightly.”

“How does this fit into the prophetic puzzle? Well, in the last days there is no mention of any nation that would resemble North Korea,” the megachurch pastor offered, but said that Iran, which is present in the End Times scenario, could potentially acquire weapons from North Korea. “Here is what concerns me. We do not find the reigning superpower on the face of the Earth anywhere in the Last Days scenario. Other nations emerge. So where is America? I pray we are not out of the picture, because we have been in some kind of nuclear conflict,” Laurie added.

Eerily Accurate 1968 Prophecy From A 90-Year-Old Woman In Norway Is Being Fulfilled Right Before Our Eyes
MAY 1, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) In 1968, a 90-year-old woman in Norway was given an incredible glimpse into the future. She was shown what life would be like just before World War III and the return of Jesus Christ, and what she saw is eerily similar to current conditions in our world today. When evangelist Emanuel Minos held meetings in the town of Valdres, Norway where she lived, this precious elderly lady shared what the Lord had shown to her with him. Minos wrote down what he was told, and it got put away in a drawer for 30 years.

But after many of the things that she saw started to come to pass, Minos remembered the vision and decided to share it with the world. One of the reasons why I wanted to share this vision now is because it has so many parallels to other visions that I have been sharing recently. You can read her entire vision here, but in this article I just wanted to highlight a few portions of it. One of the things that this 90-year-old woman was shown was that there would be a “lukewarmness without parallel” before Jesus comes back and that “Christians will not be open for penetrating preaching”…

It Is Becoming Illegal To Be Homeless In America As Houston, Dallas And Dozens Of Other Cities Pass Draconian Laws
MAY 1, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Should we make homelessness against the law and simply throw all homeless people into prison so that we don’t have to deal with them? Incredibly, this is actually starting to happen in dozens of major cities all across the United States. It may be difficult to believe, but in many large urban areas today, if you are found guilty of “public camping” you can be taken directly to jail. In some cities, activities such as “blocking a walkway” or creating any sort of “temporary structure for human habitation” are also considered to be serious crimes.
And there are some communities that have even made it illegal to feed the homeless without an official permit. Unfortunately, as the U.S. economy continues to slow down the number of homeless people will continue to grow, and so this is a crisis that is only going to grow in size and scope. Of course the goal of many of these laws is to get the homeless to go somewhere else. But as these laws start to multiply all across the nation, pretty soon there won’t be too many places left where it is actually legal to be homeless.

After Losing Their Homes and Crops to Devastating Peru Floods, Victims Ask for Bibles
MAY 1, 2017
Since December last year, the South American nation of Peru has been battered by devastating floods and mudslides amid heavy rains caused by the sudden and abnormal warming of Pacific waters, reports say. According to the U.S. Agency for International Development, the still continuing severe weather and related natural disasters have affected 1.1 million people. As of April 19, the Peruvian government reported that the disasters have killed more than 110 people, injured over 400 others, and displaced as many as 184,000 people.
The disasters brought about by a local El Nino phenomenon, or the warming of surface sea temperatures in the Pacific, will likely continue along Peru’s northern coast at least through April, a Peruvian scientist told Reuters. Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said his country will need some US$9 billion (S$12.5 billion) to rebuild and modernize the affected areas, according to Agence France Presse.

Jordan Tells Israel: Withdraw And You’ll Get “Security”
MAY 1, 2017
Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on Saturday said Arab countries would provide security for Israel if it withdraws from Judea and Samaria. Safadi’s comments came during a meeting with in Moscow with his counterpart, Sergey Lavrov. “In order for Israel to live in peace with the Arabs, it is necessary for them to leave the territories occupied after 1967. So if
this happens, the Arab countries will be ready to give security guarantees to Israel,” the Jordanian minister said,
according to the Russian Sputnik news agency. Safadi added that the Israeli-Palestinian Authority (PA) conflict was a key concern for the Middle East. “We consider the settlement of the Palestinian problem as a core of tensions in our region. That is why we definitely plan to create additional conditions for security and stability in our region and in the whole world,” he said, according to Sputnik.

LYING SIGNS AND WONDERS: Statue of Jesus Moves Head During Friday Mass
MAY 1, 2017
Churchgoers have hailed a ‘miracle’ after a statue of Jesus moved its head during mass. Footage apparently recorded by a member of the congregation shows the figure in the top right corner of the shot during a service. But halfway through the clip, the figure’s head suddenly moves from one side, dropping down. The video is said to have been filmed in the church of Santa Ana in Tepetitlan, in the state of Jalisco, western Mexico.
The clip has gone viral and the story of the “miracle”, as some villagers have described it, has made national headlines. Estela Gomez, one of those to have witnessed the phenomenon, told local media: “He wants to tell us something, he wants something from us.” Another villager claimed: “This could be a miracle”. But parish priest Juan Antonio Guerra Lule was more measured.

False Prophet Who Predicted Trump Victory Claims World War 3 Will Begin on This Date
MAY 1, 2017
An alleged “clairvoyant” who claimed to have predicted the electoral victory of U.S. President Donald Trump last year has now come up with a new stunning prediction: the day an apocalyptic World War 3 would begin this year. Horacio Villegas, who proclaims himself as a “supernatural being,” told the Daily Star Online that Trump would become the “illuminati king” who will “bring the world into WW3.” Villegas, who lives in Texas, said he had predicted that Trump
would attack Syria following the latter’s attack using chemical weapons—two events that actually happened. He predicted that the conflict would also suck in Russia, North Korea and China. Recently, he said he had a “dream” in which he saw “balls of fire falling from the sky and hitting the Earth.” “People everywhere were running around trying to hide from this destruction,” he said. “I believe these were symbolic of the nuclear missiles that will fall on cities and people throughout the world.” Villegas then made his grimmest forecast: World War 3 will erupt on May 13, 2017.

Russian Man Caught Playing Pokemon in Church Could be Sentenced to Prison for ‘Inciting Religious Hatred’
APRIL 30, 2017
Prosecutors in Russia have asked for a punishment of three and a half years in jail for a blogger who played the game “Pokemon Go” in a Russian Orthodox church and later posted a video to YouTube about it. He was charged with inciting religious hatred. Ruslan Sokolovsky, a 22-year-old popular blogger, was charged with “inciting hatred” and “insulting the feelings of religious believers” after he posted a YouTube video in August 2016, which sought to mock Christianity and

showed how he played “Pokemon Go” on his phone inside a church in the central city of Yekaterinburg. The video has been viewed more than 1.7 million times. “There are no grounds to let the defendant go unpunished,” a prosecutor told the court, according to Reuters. “I ask for a punishment of three years and six months of imprisonment for all crimes.” The court is scheduled to pronounce the verdict on May 11. Sokolovsky is currently under house arrest. He was arrested in September.

Trump Claims His First 100 Days ‘Most Successful in Our Country’s History’
APRIL 30, 2017
President Donald Trump, who hosted a rally in Pennsylvania Saturday, skipping the annual White House Correspondents Dinner, said his first 100 days in the White House have been “just about the most successful in our country’s history.””From the first day of my administration, I have governed by a simple idea: My only allegiance is to you, our wonderful citizens,” Trump said in his weekly address Saturday. “I truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country’s history.

Most importantly, we’re bringing back jobs. You asked the people of Michigan; you asked the people of Ohio; you can ask the people of Pennsylvania.”He continued, “See the car companies come roaring back in. They don’t want to leave. They want to stay here. They want a piece of the action. Our country is going up and it’s going up fast. Our companies are doing better. They just announced fantastic profits all because of what’s happened in this rather short period of time, and that’s just the beginning. We’re putting in a massive tax cut for the middle class and for business. It’s going to have an enormous effect.”

1 in 8 children in California schools have an undocumented parent
APRIL 30, 2017
Posing significant challenges for educators, about 1 in 8 students in California schools has at least one parent who is undocumented, according to a new brief from the Education Trust-West. Undocumented children, as well as U.S. citizen children with undocumented relatives, have experienced heightened anxieties for several years as a result of deportation policies begun under President George W. Bush and tightened ones under President Barack Obama.

But according to school officials, those anxieties have reached new heights since Donald Trump’s inauguration, with possible consequences on their ability to focus on school work, the willingness of parents to attend school events, or even to bring their children to school. Education Trust-West, an advocacy organization in Oakland, estimates that 750,000 students in California’s preK-12 schools have an undocumented parent, out of a total enrollment of 6.2 million. Some of these students may be undocumented themselves, but the vast majority of K-12 children with undocumented parents are U.S. citizens.

US Approves Possible $440 Million Arms Sale To Israel
APRIL 30, 2017
The State Department approved a “Possible Foreign Military Sale” to Israel, according to a Defense Security Cooperation Agency press release published on Friday. The agency said that the Israeli government requested to purchase 13 76-mm. naval guns, as well as a variety of naval maintenance materials and tools, technical, logistics and support services, operations and maintenance training and other related supplies and services. The estimated cost of such a deal is $440 million.
“The United States is committed to the security of Israel,” said the press release. “And it is vital to US national interests to assist Israel to develop and maintain a strong and ready self-defense capability… This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a strategic regional partner that has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.”

Could the Antichrist Arise From the 8th Kingdom?
APRIL 30, 2017
(By Perry Stone) Among the writings of the Old Testament prophets, Moses is named in Scripture 768 times, while Abram or Abraham’s name is mentioned 303 times. The one individual who holds more predictions about His appearance and ministry throughout the Scriptures is the promised Messiah. The only other person who receives such attention in the biblical prophetic Scriptures is a person identified as the final prince of darkness called the Antichrist.
There are few Christians in America today who have not heard the term Antichrist. The average Christian in the Western Hemisphere who has read prophecy books, watched end-time DVDs or viewed apocalyptic-oriented television specials understands four basic facts revealed in Scripture about the coming Antichrist. They are:
The Antichrist is a man who will form a final empire at the end of the age.
The Antichrist will make a treaty with Israel for seven years.
The Antichrist will eventually set up his kingdom in Jerusalem.
The Antichrist will be involved in the final battle called Armageddon.
Two biblical prophets, Daniel and the apostle John, give numerous details in their writings and prophetic visions concerning this man’s rise to power, his realm of influence and his violent reaction to those who reject his mission. Much of the church’s historical understanding of this man comes from two prophetic books, Daniel and Revelation.

Turkey bans TV dating shows with emergency decree
APRIL 30, 2017
Turkey has banned radio and TV dating programs with a decree made possible by the country’s state of emergency. A new clause has been added to the article on protecting children in the country’s media law. “In radio and television broadcasting services, such programs in which people are introduced with the purpose of finding a friend or searching for a spouse… cannot be permitted,”says a statement in Turkey’s Official Gazette, which publishes new legislation. Reports
that Turkey may ban matchmaking reality shows emerged this year in March, when Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said that “there are some strange programs that would scrap the institution of family, take away its nobility and sanctity.” “We are working on this and we are coming to the end of it. God willing, in the near future, we will most likely remedy this with an emergency decree,” Kurtulmus said, adding “God willing, we will meet these societal demands.”

Powerful Super Storm Stretches From New York to the Texas Panhandle
APRIL 30, 2017
This is what a superstorm looks like!

A very large, powerful storm system is forming over the United States stretching from New York all the way back to the Texas Panhandle. It looks like an anomalous “energy rush” of some sort. And the
‘deadly’ superstorm continues to grow. You will/may get downpours, floods, snow, tornado, hail, winds through the weekend from New York to Texas! This system, based off of these satellite images has the potential to create some very intense storms.

11 Reasons Why U.S. Economic Growth Is The Worst That It Has Been In 3 Years
APRIL 30, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Those that were predicting that the U.S. economy would be flying high by now have been proven wrong. U.S. GDP grew at the worst rate in three years during the first quarter of 2017, and many are wondering if this is the beginning of a major economic slowdown. Of course when we are dealing with the official numbers that the federal government puts out, it is important to acknowledge that they are highly manipulated. There are many that have correctly pointed out to me that if

the numbers were not being doctored that they would show that we are still in a recession. In fact, John Williams of shadowstats.com has shown that if honest numbers were being used that U.S. GDP growth would have been consistently negative going all the way back to 2005. So I definitely don’t have any argument with those that claim that we are actually in a recession right now. But even if we take the official numbers that the federal government puts out at face value, they are definitely very ugly…

Violent Persecution of Christians Rising in India – Attack Recorded Every 40 Hours
APRIL 30, 2017
A new report says that violent attacks on the Christian minority in India are increasing at an alarming rate, as the emboldened members of groups close to the governing Hindu nationalist party seek to create a “Hindu nation.” There’s an anti-Christian attack every 40 hours, the report highlights.The report by the All India Christian Council says attacks against Christians increased by about 20 percent in 2016, and physical violence against Christians was up by as much as 40 percent. A fresh attack is being reported every 40 hours, it added.
“The attacks have become severe and more frequent. Incidents used to be confined to a few states. Now the violence has spread to 23 states,” the report notes, pointing out that the sharpest rise has been recorded in the northern Uttar Pradesh state and the southern state of Telangana. The attacks involve physical beating, vandalism and torching of churches, burning of Bibles, death threats, forcing Christians to renounce their faith and convert to Hinduism, and disruption of and attacks on church services and prayer meetings.

Is ISIS a Reenactment of Biblical War Between Israel and the Amalekites?
APRIL 30, 2017
Some military analysts have suggested that the war against the Islamic State terror group, particularly in its attacks on Egypt, is a reenactment of an ancient biblical confrontation between Israel and the Amalekites. “Exodus tells of the legendary battle between Amalek, the ancestral enemy of the Jewish people, and the Israelites, which took place at a site called Rephidim, located in the Egyptian desert,” Breaking Israel News reported in an article on Thursday.
“Two thousand years later, a new battle against Israel’s enemies is being staged in exactly the same place: an Egyptian airfield in Bir Gafgafa, which is located precisely on the biblical site of Rephidim in the Sinai Peninsula.” BIN credited the observations to Giora Shamis, editor of the Israeli military intelligence website Debka Files, who noted that on this particular issue, Egypt is an ally of Israel in the battle against the Islamic State.

Christian University Students Call School’s Biblical Views on Sex, Gender Identity ‘UnChrist-Like’
APRIL 30, 2017
A student club at Seattle Pacific University recently protested against the Christian university because it adheres to biblical views on human sexuality and gender identity. The club, called SPU Haven, which advocates for gay students, claims that the university’s “Statement on Human Sexuality” is “unethical, unscientific and unChrist-like,” according to College Fix. Members of SPU Haven protested against the left-leaning university during the “Day of Silence,”
a national event that was held at university campuses and high schools on April 21 to bring attention to the “silencing effects of anti-LGBTQ name-calling, bullying and harassment.” While the SPU administration said it supports students taking part in LGBT activism, it removed posters the students displayed around campus showing cartoon images of students’ mouths taped shut because they didn’t follow the university guidelines.

UPDATE: UMC Rules Against LGBT Bishops As Clergy
APRIL 29, 2017
The United Methodist Church Judicial Council ruled lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual members could not be consecrated as clergy. The ruling came after married lesbian Karen Oliveto was consecrated as bishop last year. Despite the ruling, Oliveto can still serve as bishop until it is determined she violated these standards. “The Judicial Council had a difficult task of ruling on the narrow basis of church law that has been carefully developed over the years to protect the
rights of clergy accused of wrongdoing—sometimes well beyond the bounds of reasonable doubt and to the point of sidelining concern for victims,” UMAction Director and 2016 General Conference delegate John Lomperis said in a release. “I celebrate that these landmark rulings should now make it significantly easier to bring accountability for pastors who choose to violate biblical standards for sexual self-control. We are slowly but increasingly strengthening biblical accountability in our church,” the statement continued.

City Council Unanimously Votes to Remove Bench That Features ‘God’ Quote From State Founder
APRIL 29, 2017
A city council in Pennsylvania has unanimously voted to remove a park bench that was meant to honor veterans due to objection from an atheist group regarding a God-centered inscription on the display that is attributed to the state’s founder. “From an administration standpoint, this is heading toward litigation,” Mark Schroyer, the city manager of Oil City, told Explore Clarion.
“At that point, we have to decide what are our wins, losses and gain. … Our collective opinion is, if it’s winnable, it would be so costly [that] what would we actually be gaining other than taking the stand our residents are asking?” “Our biggest concern is exposure to attorney fees,” also remarked City Solicitor Robert Varsek. “We would be sued for injunctive relief where they order the city to remove the bench, and for damages and also be sued for attorney fees under the civil rights law.”

U.S. Economy Reports Slowest Growth in 3 years For First Quarter
APRIL 28, 2017
The government’s official scorecard for the U.S. economy in the first quarter pointed to the weakest growth in three years, but the slowdown appeared tied to temporary effects that are likely to give way a rebound in the coming months. Gross domestic product increased at a meager 0.7% annual pace in the first three months of the year, down from 2.1% and 3.5% in the back half of 2016. Economists polled by
MarketWatch had forecast a 0.9% increase. In recent trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.17% and the S&P 500 index SPX, -0.18% fell slightly. The steep drop-off stemmed from the smallest increase in consumer spending since the end of 2009, largely reflecting fewer sales at car dealers. Consumer outlays rose just 0.3%, a steep drop from the 3.5% gain at the end of 2016.

Program Glorifying False Gods Marked Most Politically Relevant Show on TV
APRIL 28, 2017
A storm is brewing in Starz’s gritty new series “American Gods,” as deities old and new gear up for a battle that reverberates with topical issues in the real world. Immigration, race, religion and sexuality are all examined in “American Gods” through the saga of Shadow Moon, a convict who is released to the news of his wife’s death. He is hired to be the bodyguard of an old grifter named Mr. Wednesday, the disguise of the Norse god Odin.
“This show has become the most politically relevant show on TV without a doubt,” actor Ricky Whittle, who plays Shadow, told Reuters at the red-carpet premiere on Thursday. “American Gods,” which premieres on premium cable network Starz on April 30, is based on British author Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel of the same name, a surreal story of how the old gods of folklore struggle to be revered and remembered in an age of new gods like technology and media.

Wait Until You Hear Why This Pentecostal Megachurch Pastor is Burning Bibles!
APRIL 28, 2017
A Pentecostal pastor in Uganda’s capital has reportedly torched thousands of Bibles because they were “fake” and “demonic.” Pastor Aloysius Bugingo of the House of Prayer Ministries in Kampala ordered the burning of the Good News Bible and the King James Version because they used the words “Holy Ghost” instead of “Holy Spirit.” The Easter Weekend action shocked and angered church leaders in the country, with many terming his actions an insult to
Christianity. “We condemn the act in the strongest terms possible,” Bishop Herman Sentamu, leader of the Passover Harvest church, a large Pentecostal group in Uganda, said in a telephone interview Wednesday (April 26). “Holy Ghost” and “Holy Spirit” are interchangeable terms for the third entity of the Christian Trinity composed of God, Son and Holy Spirit. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries the term “Holy Spirit” came into wider use and is now preferred by many Christians.

Did Pope Francis Just Make Another Move for One World Religion?
APRIL 28, 2017
Pope Francis arrived in Cairo on Friday hoping to mend ties with Muslim leaders, just as Egypt’s ancient Christian community faces unprecedented pressure from Islamic State militants who have threatened to wipe it out. In an address to the Egyptian people this week, Francis said he hoped his visit would help bring peace and encourage dialog and reconciliation with the Islamic world.
But it comes at a painful time for Egypt’s Copts, the Middle East’s largest Christian community, three weeks after Islamic State suicide bombers killed 45 people in twin church bombings. Those attacks followed a cathedral bombing that killed 28 people in December and a spree of murders that has forced hundreds of Christians to flee North Sinai, where the group is most active. “Pope of Peace in Egypt of Peace,” read posters plastered along the road leading from the airport to central Cairo, showing a smiling pope, his hand raised above the Christian cross and the Crescent moon of Islam.

Rare Quadruple Rainbows Appear on the Isle of Terschelling, Netherlands
APRIL 29, 2017
It’s a treat to see a rainbow painting the sky, and seeing a double rainbow always gets our attention, but how many of us have seen four bows at the same time? The anomalous rainbow “quad” shown below was photographed from the island of Terschelling in the Netherlands on April 28, 2017. The bright primary bow (left most) and fainter secondary bow (right
most) are a result of refraction and reflection of sunlight in raindrops – a second reflection within the drops creates the secondary bow. However, the fainter bows – behind the first ones – isn’t due to a third raindrop reflection but rather to reflection off the primary and secondary rainbows, respectively. The reflected rainbow crosses the main level with the horizon, then it passes over it.

DAYS OF LOT: New Bill Would Ban Conversion Therapy For LGBTQ People Nationwide
APRIL 29, 2017
Democratic lawmakers this week introduced a bill that would ban the practice of “conversion therapy,” treatments that historically have targeted the LGBT community and claim to be able to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. The Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act of 2017 was introduced Tuesday by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), along with Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.). About 70 other members of Congress, all Democrats, have said
they support the bill, which would allow the Federal Trade Commission to classify conversion therapy and its practitioners as fraudulent. “The bill is very simple,” Lieu told The Washington Post. “It says it is fraud if you treat someone for a condition that doesn’t exist and there’s no medical condition known as being gay. LGBTQ people were born perfect; there is nothing to treat them for. And by calling this what it should be, which is fraud, it would effectively shut down most of the organizations.”

Ring of Fire Heating Up! 37 Volcanic Eruptions and Increased Seismic Activity Happening Now!
APRIL 29, 2017
The Ring of Fire is heating up with 37 volcanoes are currently being reported erupting and others showing signs of increased seismic unrest as well. Located on the Japanese Island of Kyushu, the Sakurajima volcano suddenly threw ash in the sky with a height of more than three kilometers on April 28, 2017. According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, it’s the first volcano eruption in the current calendar year.
The last eruption took place in July 2016. The eruption of Nishinoshima in Japan is picking up speed. A week ago the volano started erupting for the first time after more than 1 year of calm. Now, there are newly 3 active vents, the main crater has strombolian eruptions and two new vents are erupting a flows of lava towards the South and West. The western flow has entered the ocean. It will be interesting how long time this eruption lasts, and how much new Surface it will add to the Island of Nishinoshima.

Student told to stop reading Bible before class
APRIL 29, 2017
A Northern Arizona University student was recently asked to stop reading his Bible prior to the start of one of his classes, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. In a recording of the February incident, provided to Campus Reform by Kevin Cavanaugh for Congress, Mark Holden explains the situation to History Department Chair Derek Heng, who had been called in by the instructor, Dr. Heather Martel, after Holden had refused her request that he put his Bible away.
Holden tells Heng that he had arrived early to his U.S. history course and, as usual, used the spare time to read his Bible, but claims that Martel had objected to the routine because she didn’t want to see a Bible in front of her. “So Prof. Martel says that she doesn’t want you sitting in front of her because you put, you know, a Bible out, right?” Heng can be heard explaining to Holden, adding that while he doesn’t “know what the dynamics [are] going on in the classroom,” the “real key is to make sure that, you know, the class is able to go on and that you are in the classroom.”

British Military May Have Just Created ‘Iron Man’ Flying Suit
APRIL 29, 2017
lying soldiers have been historically confined to science fiction or comic books, but a British inventor may be about to change the course of warfare. Richard Browning, who has been dubbed the ‘Iron Man’ of Wiltshire, has constructed a personal flight suit and amazed delegates at this year’s TED Conference when he lifted off from the short of Vancouver Harbour. Mr Browning, a Royal marine reserve,
said a member the British military had already displayed interest in the suit, and had told him that the Ministry of Defence had given up on the idea of flying soldiers until they saw his design.Although the MoD told the Telegraph they were unaware of the conversation, they said they are currently looking for ‘innovative military solutions’ as part of an £800 million scheme to improve defence.

Apple Picking Robots Could Replace Workers Leaving Many Concerned.
APRIL 28, 2017
Harvesting Washington state’s vast fruit orchards each year requires thousands of farmworkers, and many of them work illegally in the United States. That system eventually could change dramatically as at least two companies are rushing to get robotic fruit-picking machines to market. The robotic pickers don’t get tired and can work 24 hours a day.
“Human pickers are getting scarce,” said Gad Kober, a co-founder of Israel-based FFRobotics. “Young people do not want to work in farms, and elderly pickers are slowly retiring.” FFRobotics and Abundant Robotics, of Hayward, California, are racing to get their mechanical pickers to market within the next couple of years.

Talks Underway For New Conservative Network To Replace Fox News
APRIL 28, 2017
On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst conservative fat cats. A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left.
The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network. The potential aim? Putting “the old band” back together. There are certainly plenty of (out-of-work?) conservative powerhouses to pick from that could star on a new network, and perhaps even some executives from within Fox News who might be lured by the new opportunity.

CIA implanted microphones into cats to spy on Russia
APRIL 28, 2017
CIA spooks tried to spy on Soviet Russia using CATS implanted with microphones under their skin. Declassified docs show how spy chiefs praised “pioneering” scientists for slitting open moggies and stitching in electronic hardware to uncover their enemies’ secrets. Dubbed “Project Acoustic Kitty”, the grim £10 million programme was developed over five years in the 1960s as a novel but gruesome new eavesdropping method.
A cat’s tail was used as an antenna and a wire travelled all the way up its spine connecting to a microphone in its ear, while a battery was housed in its chest. But on its first test, its CIA handlers watched on in horror as their robo-kitty was run over and killed just seconds into the mission.CIA insider Victor Maarcheti told The Atlantic: “There they were, sitting in the van and the cat was dead.”

Over 40,000 Groups Will Gather For Prayer Next Week
APRIL 28, 2017
The annual National Day of Prayer will be observed next week with 40,000 events being held nationwide to pray for the country. Dion Elmore, chief communications officer with the Colorado Springs, Colorado-based National Day of Prayer Task Force, told The Christian Post that thus far between 40,000 and 45,000 events will be held on May 6.In 2016, the National Day of Prayer had a record number of individual events when approximately 47,000 local events were held nationwide.
Elmore also told CP that since the sacred observance was started, “every [president’s] administration has sent representation to the National Day of Prayer Observance.” “Our hope is that is that, once again, citizens of the United States will be encouraged by the presidential and gubernatorial proclamations to ‘turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals,’ believing what the scripture teaches in James 5:16, that ‘the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.'”

Google Launches “Project Owl” to Eliminate “Fake News” From Search Engine
APRIL 28, 2017
On Tuesday morning, Google announced some major changes meant to fight the fake news and hate speech that keep polluting its search results. The Google update, codenamed “Project Owl,” gives consumers two new ways to report what they perceive as problems in the search results. The company is also using teams of humans as part of an effort to get its algorithms to show more reliable information. Here’s a plain English Q&A about the changes and what they mean to you.
The search giant has been under fire for search results that show false, offensive, or outrageous information about certain topics. For instance, Google prominently displayed links to pro-Nazi sites in response to queries about the Holocaust. Or when people started typing phrases about women or racial groups, Google would suggest queries like “Why are women so dumb?” Needless to say this got a lot of negative media attention. Even though Google does not like interfering with its algorithms—which are supposed to find the most helpful answers to a given topic—the problem became big enough Google decided to take action.

Intense Prophetic Dream Reveals Your Breakthrough Is at Hand
APRIL 28, 2017
(By Joe Joe Dawson) Late on Easter night before I went to bed, I had a moment with the Lord. I just wasn’t praying, but rather there was a deep groan that came from my soul and spirit asking God for a visitation from Him through prophetic dreams and visions that night. I remember saying, “God, I am so desperate for a dream that will speak to my wife and I about our future, the future of our city, region and our nation. I remember going to sleep with great expectation that my God was going to speak to me. I knew that when the Lord visited me with a prophetic dream that it was going to be a kairos moment that would be a marking point for our future.
At 2:55 a.m., I woke up, having just experienced a prophetic dream. In the dream, the sky was filled with an angelic battle. The dream was so clear, and the heavens were filled with heavenly angels and demonic powers engaged in warfare. Then suddenly a loud roar from heaven came. Then all of the demonic angels were blown away and fell to the wayside. There was a glorious burst of light, and the dream was filled with a glow, and gold filled the place and overtook the vision. When I awakened, I heard this phrase over and over again. “Now is the time, now is the time, now is the time.” I got up out of bed and started to pray in the Spirit.

Wisconsin university approves Israel boycott
APRIL 28, 2017
The student government of the University of Wisconsin-Madison unanimously passed a divestment resolution targeting companies operating in many countries that included an amendment specifically about Israel, JTA reported Thursday. The resolution, which passed Wednesday by the Associated Students of Madison by a 24-0 vote with two abstentions, calls on the university and its foundation to divest from companies involved in private prisons, arms manufacture, fossil fuels and border walls, and banks that “oppress marginalized communities.”

The vote comes a month after a divestment resolution specifically targeting Israel failed to pass the student government and two weeks after the student government passed a proposal to create a new financial transparency and ethics subcommittee, according to JTA. That meeting was held April 12, the second day of Passover, when several Jewish representatives were absent.

A fireball streaked across the sky overnight, according to multiple reports. By 4 a.m. Wednesday, the American Meteor Society received nearly 50 reports about the flaming streak in the night sky. A meteorologist at CBS Miami also recorded video, the station’s website said. The object was likely a meteor breaking up in the atmosphere. It was visible from the
Keys to Port St. Lucie on the east coast and as far north as Tampa on the west coast, reports said.Among those who spotted and were able to record the fireball was Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Evan Calhoun. He was on patrol in the Lower Keys, on Big Pine Key, shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday when his dashcam unit taped the meteor as it streaked across the night sky.

Last 2 Chapters of Revelation Reveal Important Intersection in End-Times Prophecy
APRIL 28, 2017
(By Asher Intrater) Since John was the last writer of Scriptures, his writings contain a unique view of the whole spectrum of Scriptures from beginning to end. John often spoke in terms of “beginning to end” (John 1:1; 1 John 1:1; Rev. 1:8, 17).
This “beginning to end” perspective comes to light particularly in the last chapters of Revelation. The first two chapters of Genesis describe creation and Eden; whereas the last two chapters of Revelation describe the restoration of creation and Eden.
In these last two chapters, there is a special addition about “heavenly Jerusalem” (21:9-22:3). Glorified Jerusalem becomes the centerpiece of the restoration of Paradise. Heaven and earth come together as heavenly and earthly Jerusalem come together. The glorious destiny of both Eden and Jerusalem are one and the same.

Why So Many People Fall Victim to the Deception of the Hyper-grace Movement
APRIL 28, 2017
(By Bert Farias) What some people call the hyper-grace message began as a result of a sort of revolt against religion and man-made rules. A portion of that message, however, went into a ditch on the other side and manifested as rebellion in some believers against every kind of discipline and godly conduct. In a word, Christians abused their liberty. There are now so-called “liberated” churches who party and drink alcohol, all in the name of “being free” from the Law. One church had a beach party with women dressed scantily in bikinis while beer and wine were being served. Their motto: “We want people to know that we’re not religious!”
Hmmm … what does that mean? What are some characteristics of “being religious”? Is there such a thing? I was raised as a devout Roman Catholic. I believe I have a pretty thorough understanding of religion, the Law and legalism—all being used here as synonymous terms. I define religion (without relationship) as man-made expectations enforced upon someone as a means of defining how they may be accepted in a particular religion, church or denominational system.

Christian Convert Cast Out by Muslim Family for Turning to Christ
APRIL 28, 2017
A Sudanese woman who became a Christian while working in Indonesia was forced out of her Muslim family’s home and told to never return after they learned about her conversion.Persecution watchdog group International Christian Concern shared Risma’s story on Wednesday, explaining that she initially moved to Jakarta to work as a shopkeeper. “One Sunday, Risma felt a strong urge to go to church.
This was especially unusual for Risma, since she was a Muslim and never went to church. For some reason, she went anyway that day,” ICC reports. Risma shared that she felt “God’s presence” upon walking into the church. “Suddenly, she began sobbing, but in spite of the tears she felt overwhelmed with peace and joy like she had never felt before. She had no idea what this meant, but she knew something was different. She knew her life was changing,” the group added.

‘Happy Days’ Actress Came to Christ Through ‘Facts of Life’ Friend
APRIL 28, 2017
Erin Moran, the former child star who played Joanie Cunningham in the sitcom “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chachi,” died Saturday at age 56. She died from stage four cancer. Her husband, Steve Fleischmann, says he held her hand as she passed away. “She was there watching TV in bed. I laid down next to her, held her right hand in my left. I fell asleep and woke up about a hour later still holding her hand,
and she was gone, she was just gone…” he said in a statement. While many mourn her death, new information reveals that Moran was a strong believer who knew the Lord before she died. Moran’s limo driver, Barton T. Wade, told Breaking Christian News that years ago, Moran told him about how her friend and fellow actress, Lisa Welchel had led her to the Lord, and that she had accepted Christ.

APPLE self-driving car seen on road for first time…
APRIL 28, 2017
t is no secret that Apple has been working furiously to develop self-driving car technology in a bid to compete with rivals including Google and Tesla. Until now, the operation has been kept from the public eye.Images have emerged of Apple’s first autonomous car on the roads of Silicon Valley. The car appears to be a Lexus RX450h that is fitted with a range of sensors, radar scanners and cameras. From the initial sighting,
the car seems to use similar technology to efforts by competitors. Apple’s car is fitted with a array of sensors for navigation including one called lidar, which has recently become the focus of a high-profile lawsuit between Google and Uber. Some of the sensors appeared to be made by third party companies, rather than Apple itself, someone who saw the vehicle told Bloomberg.

UPDATE: Benny Hinn Reveals Feds Investigating ‘Certain Operations of Church’ After Raid
APRIL 28, 2017
A day after criminal investigators from the IRS and inspectors from the U.S. Postal Service executed a closely guarded raid on the offices of his ministry in Grapevine, Texas, on Wednesday, popular faith-healing televangelist Benny Hinn revealed they are looking into “certain operations of the church.” Hinn did not go into much detail about which aspects of his ministry federal officials are reviewing, but in a statement on Facebook he said he’s confident the investigation will end favorably.
“As has been widely reported, Benny Hinn Ministries is cooperating fully with the governmental entities that are reviewing certain operations of the Church. The ministry has undergone intense scrutiny over the years, and we remain confident that there will again be a positive and speedy outcome in the days ahead,” the statement said. It ended: “Pastor Benny appreciates the love, prayers, and support of our beloved partners as we continue to minister the saving and healing Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.”

Did Pope Francis Just Make Another Move for One World Religion?
APRIL 28, 2017
Pope Francis arrived in Cairo on Friday hoping to mend ties with Muslim leaders, just as Egypt’s ancient Christian community faces unprecedented pressure from Islamic State militants who have threatened to wipe it out. In an address to the Egyptian people this week, Francis said he hoped his visit would help bring peace and encourage dialog and reconciliation with the Islamic world.
But it comes at a painful time for Egypt’s Copts, the Middle East’s largest Christian community, three weeks after Islamic State suicide bombers killed 45 people in twin church bombings. Those attacks followed a cathedral bombing that killed 28 people in December and a spree of murders that has forced hundreds of Christians to flee North Sinai, where the group is most active. “Pope of Peace in Egypt of Peace,” read posters plastered along the road leading from the airport to central Cairo, showing a smiling pope, his hand raised above the Christian cross and the Crescent moon of Islam.

New Bill Would Force Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers in Hawaii to Advertise Abortion
APRIL 27, 2017
Earlier this month, Hawaii’s house of representatives voted 41-10 in favor of a bill that would require the state’s pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise abortion services, LifeSite News reported. The proposed measure known as SB 510 would force all community-funded pregnancy center — including the state’s five pro-life pregnancy organizations — to share with their clients the following message:

Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services, including, but not limited to, all FDA-approved methods of contraception and pregnancy-related services for eligible women. To apply online for medical insurance coverage, that will cover the full range of family planning and prenatal care services, go to mybenefits.hawaii.gov. Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate.

Why the Enemy Appears as an Angel of Light
APRIL 27, 2017
(By Michael Youssef) The very name Lucifer is taken from the word light or luciferous, which means “bringing light” or “illumination.” In Satan’s case, it is a false light—one that deceives rather than illuminates the truth. The reason the enemy appears as an angel of light is because he imitates God. Satan wants us to believe that he is as powerful as God. The Bible does describe him as the “god of this world,” and there are millions of people who unknowingly follow him and his leading each and every day.
Paul, however, was intent on bringing true light with the gospel message. He reminds each one of us that we were once “dead in [our] trespasses and sins, in which [we] formerly walked according to the age of this world and according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience: (Ephesians 2:1-2). However, the fact is that Christ has set us free from the bondage of sin. This does not give us the occasion to boast or to drop our guard. Every gift God gives, Satan counterfeits.

Scientists grow a working human brain in the lab
APRIL 27, 2017
Tiny human brains have been grown in a dish in what could herald a breakthrough in conditions like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia. The brain cells have formed similar circuits to those of a two-month-old fetus, now giving scientists an opportunity to examine how the brain and any diseases develop. Researchers at Stanford University first grew two forebrain circuits, before going on to the next step of growing a mini organ over nine months.

Scientists will now be able to watch how the brain develops, with it hoped that the “entire movie” of a brain’s growth will be able to be monitored in the lab, rather than just snapshots. The process could be the first step towards being able to grow an entire human body in the lab, with researchers hoping that the “thrilling science” will be able to provide insights into brain conditions like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.

‘Figure of Jesus’ appears above Colombian city wiped out by giant landslide
APRIL 27, 2017
This is the amazing moment the ‘Figure of Jesus’ appeared in front of a crowd gathered to film the sunset over the city of Manizales which was ravaged by a giant landslide earlier this month. The rare cloud phenomenon provided comfort to Colombian landslide survivors who had lost their loved ones during a landslide that ripped through the city, killing 17 people a week ago.
Manizales was destroyed by landlsides a week ago. A crowd gathered to film the sunlight slanting through sky over in the city were cheered by what they believed was the figure of Jesus appearing in the clouds. The rare cloud phenomenon was recorded on a mountain called Sancancio. The shape of the mysterious sky phenomenon ressembles a figure of Jesus, or of the departure of Christ from Earth into the presence of God.

Only 20% Of Americans Read Entire Bible, Most Call It ‘Good Source of Morals’
APRIL 26, 2017
Only 20 percent of Americans have read the Bible in its entirety, according to a new survey which also found that most Americans have positive feelings toward it and would describe it as a “good source of morals.” LifeWay Research revealed that 10 percent of respondents read none of the Bible, 13 percent said they read only a few sentences, 30 percent said they knew of several passages or stories, 15 percent read at least half the Bible, and 12 percent read almost all of it. Overall, only 20 percent of the respondent said they read the entire Bible. “Most Americans don’t know first-hand the overall story of the Bible — because they rarely pick it up,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research.
“Even among worship attendees less than half read the Bible daily. The only time most Americans hear from the Bible is when someone else is reading it.” The small percentage of Americans who have read all the scriptures is not for a lack of Bibles, LifeWay pointed out, with close to nine out of 10 households owning a copy. The average household owns three Bibles. Of those who read a little bit of the Bible each day, 49 percent were evangelicals while 16 percent were not evangelicals. As can be expected, those who attended church at least once a month were also more likely to read the Bible every day (39 percent), compared to those who attended less often (13 percent).

FALLING AWAY: Famine of the Word of God in America Opening Floodgates of Immorality
APRIL 26, 2017
(By Bob Smietana) Americans have a positive view of the Bible. And many say the Christian Scriptures are filled with moral lessons for today. However, more than half of Americans have read little or none of the Bible. Less than a quarter of those who have ever read a Bible have a systematic plan for reading the Christian Scriptures each day. And a third of Americans never pick it up on their own, according to a new study from Nashville-based LifeWay Research. Small wonder many church leaders worry about biblical illiteracy, said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research. “Most Americans don’t know first-hand the overall story of
the Bible—because they rarely pick it up,” McConnell said. “Even among worship attendees, less than half read the Bible daily. The only time most Americans hear from the Bible is when someone else is reading it.” Almost nine out of 10 households (87 percent) own a Bible, according to the American Bible Society, and the average household has three. But Bible reading remains spotty. LifeWay Research surveyed 1,000 Americans about their views of the Bible and found significant splits in how familiar they are with the Christian Scripture. One in five Americans, LifeWay Research found, has read through the Bible at least once.

UPDATE: Massive National Day of Prayer Gathering in South Africa Draws Over 700,000 People
APRIL 26, 2017
Police estimate that 700,000 people showed up to the National Day of Prayer event organized by Angus Buchan in South Africa. On April 22, 2017, thousands of people flooded to a farm in Bloemfontein, located in the nation’s Free State, to pray for South Africa. According to Buchan, the call to prayer came as the result of being “tired of people taking the law into their own hands. We are going to call upon The Lord to bring justice, peace and hope to our beloved South Africa.” Buchan is a farmer-turned-minister who wrote a book about his life and journey to faith, titled Faith Like Potatoes. His Shalom Ministries is concerned with fulfilling the Great Commission, caring for orphans and widows, and equipping the saints for the work of ministry, according to the website.
Organizers for the massive event pulled it together in just six short weeks and estimate that 1 million people were in attendance. Aerial shots of the crowd are certainly impressive. The theme of the event was “It’s Time,” and advertisements for the gathering featured the latter half of James 5:16: “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” Bloemfontein is located in the central part of South Africa, but the event drew people from all over the country. According to an article on enca.com, the theme of Buchan’s message was not necessarily a feel-good message. The charismatic preacher challenged attendees to think about bettering their own nation, communities and families before they seek to “save the whole world.”

Floods displace 17,000 after 15 inches of rain in 24 hours in the Dominican Republic
APRIL 26, 2017
Flooding has caused major problems in at least 5 provinces in the Dominican Republic after staggering amounts of rainfall over the last few days. According to the country’s meteorological office (ONAMET), almost 400 mm of rain fell in 24 hours in Barahona between 22 and 23 April, 2017. Further heavy rain has fallen since, mostly in southern areas of the country. In their latest report of 25 April, the Emergency Operations Centre (Centro de Operaciones de Emergencias –
COE) says that flooding has affected several areas in Santo Domingo, San Cristóbal, Monte Plata, Sánchez Ramírez, Duarte and Barahona provinces. Several rivers have overflowed, including the Ozama, Yuna, Cevicos, Manoguayabo and Haina. As many as 3,429 homes have been damaged or affected by the flooding, with around 9 houses completely destroyed. Emergency services and military have rescued 153 people. COE says that 17,145 people have been forced to evacuate their homes. Just over 300 people were being housed in official shelters in San Cristóbal (297) and Barahona (14).

Seattle Breaks 122-Year-Old Record For Rain
APRIL 26, 2017
The wet just won’t quit. Seattle has soaked up 44.67 inches of rain since October 1, according to the National Weather Service. That makes this October-through-April the wettest such period since record-keeping began in the city in 1895 — and there’s still another week of April left to go. The normal amount of rainfall for the October-through-April period in Seattle is 30.9 inches, according to the service. Why has this particular rainy season been so darn rainy? We haven’t seen many of the cold-weather systems that move quickly through the area and into the mountains. Instead, “It’s just been a parade
of frontal systems, juicier and warmer than you might expect. They plow into the area and stall,” said Mike McFarland, a meteorologist in the weather service’s Seattle office. “Not unusually heavy rain — just a lot more rainy days. It’s been a little relentless.” The deluge is Seattle’s second straight record breaker. From October 2015 through April 2016, 44.52 inches of rain dropped on the city, an amount now only good enough for No. 2 on the all-time list.

World’s Largest Jesus Christ Statue to Be Built in Most Populous Muslim Nation
APRIL 26, 2017
Authorities in the Papua region of Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, are reportedly planning to build the world’s largest statue of Jesus Christ, which would dwarf the famous “Christ the Redeemer” statue in Brazil. “The statue will be international-class, truly the most magnificent in the world,” said Papua’s Head of Public Works, Djuli Mambaya, Coconuts Jakarta translated on Tuesday from a report in Detik News. The statue, which would be built at the top of Puncak Gunung Swajah in the city of Jayapura, would cost somewhere between $22.6 million to $37.6 million, which is a significant amount of
money for Papua, where 28.5 percent of the population live below the poverty line. Mambaya explained that the Jesus statue would be at least 165 feet tall in height, with a base of 328 feet, which is far larger than Rio De Janeiro’s “Christ the Redeemer,” which is 98 feet tall, though adding in the platform rises to 124 feet. “We will build an elevator in the statue of Jesus Christ, like the one in Jakarta’s Monumen Nasional, in order to see the entire city of Jayapura through the eyes of Jesus,” Mambaya added.

Prayer at Michigan Town Hall Gathering Drowned Out With Shouts of ‘Separation of Church and State’
APRIL 26, 2017
A number of liberal activists wearing pink hats like those donned at the Washington Women’s March recently shouted down a prayer delivered at a town hall gathering in Michigan, chanting repeatedly, “Separation of Church and State!” The incident occurred last Thursday in Gaylord during a meeting held by Republican Rep. Jack Bergman. Derek Hagland of Grace Baptist Church approached the podium to deliver the invocation, but some attendees rose to their feet and began chanting. “Separation of Church and State! Separation of Church and State!” they called out over and over, while others stood or sat quietly, or bowed
their head in respect. Hagland moved forward with his prayer, appearing to ignore those being disruptive. “This guy was giving [an] invocation,” Bergman Communication Director Farahn Morgan told Breitbart News. “He was not necessarily party affiliated in any way. That kind of reaction to him? It was the most aggressive that the crowd got during the entire event which was, quite honestly, shocking.” The chanting lasted the duration of the prayer as an attendee swept the crowd with their camera, capturing those heckling the invocation.

Third of Europeans ready to dump cash ahead of digital future
APRIL 26, 2017
Over a third of Europeans would be happy to abandon cash and rely on electronic payments if they could, according to a study by ING bank released on Wednesday. The survey of almost 15,000 respondents showed that over half used less cash over the last year, with 78 percent wanting to use less cash in the next 12 month. The study covered respondents from 13 European countries and revealed that in many places where cash is most used, people are among the keenest to get rid of it. With the rapid development of cashless payment systems such as contactless cards and mobile-phone digital wallets as well as the expansion of
digital currencies, the future of physical money has come under the spotlight. The increasing interest of central banks in new cashless schemes has promoted the trend. “A cashless society is not only possible but could be accepted by at least part of the population in many European nations,” said the researchers led by senior economist Ian Bright as quoted by Bloomberg. The economist stressed that there’s a “gulf” between those changing payment methods and those who are still sticking with cash.

Atheists Attempting to End Decades Old West Virginia Bible Program
APRIL 26, 2017
A weekly Bible class offered in the public schools of Mercer County, West Virginia is a decades-old tradition. It’s offered during the school day – something that’s unheard of these days – but the program, which gives Bible teaching for 30 minutes a week in elementary school and 45 minutes a week in middle school, has widespread support. It isn’t mandatory but nearly every child attends. Parents and community members raise nearly $500,000 a year to pay for the program.

Now the Bible class is facing a legal challenge. Two residents with school-aged children say the program violates the First Amendment and the West Virginia Constitution. The lawsuit charges that the Bible class, “advances and endorses one religion, improperly entangles public schools in religious affairs, and violates the personal consciences of nonreligious and non-Christian parents and students,” according to a report in The Washington Post. Advocates of the class point out that it’s elective – no one is required to attend.

China Gripped by Spiritual Revival as ‘Hundreds of Millions Turn to Religion and Faith’
APRIL 26, 2017
Forty-one years after China’s Cultural Revolution snuffed out all forms of religious expression, hundreds of millions of Chinese people are flocking to religions like Christianity. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ian Johnson believes what’s transpiring in China is nothing short of “one of the world’s great spiritual revivals” and says the world better take note because the impact of this “spiritual transformation” could have significant global implications. “People {in China} are looking for new moral guideposts, some sort of moral compass to organize society,” said Johnson, author of The Souls of China: The Return of Religion after Mao. “So they are turning to religion as a source of values to help reorganize society.”
Johnson spent six years researching the “values and faiths of today’s China.” He says the fastest-growing drivers of this “religious revolution” are unregistered churches or so-called “house” or “underground” churches. “These groups have become surprisingly well-organized, meeting very openly and often counting hundreds of congregants,” Johnson wrote in an article for The Atlantic. “They’ve helped the number of Protestants soar from about one million when the communists took power to at least 60 million today.”

MRI scans ‘predict brain age’ could detect risk of early death ..
APRIL 26, 2017
Doctors could soon determine if you are at risk of dying young using an MRI scan. The scans could also be used to spot those who are at risk of poor health, new research has found. A team of neuroscientists in London have trained computers to test the ‘brain age’ of patients based on the volume of their brain tissue. The new test measures the overall loss of grey and white matter – a hallmark of the brain’s ageing process.
Grey matter is a major part of the body’s central nervous system, which helps send messages along the nerves from the brain to the rest of the body. Meanwhile white matter is the tissue that connects the grey matter to different areas of the brain. The new scans are not yet ready for clinical trials, the researchers stressed. But they hope they could one day be used as a tool to identify those at risk of cognitive decline and dying before the age of 80.

Computers ‘could soon delete thoughts without your knowledge’…
APRIL 26, 2017
“Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind,” wrote the playwright John Milton in 1634. But, nearly 400 years later, technological advances in machines that can read our thoughts mean the privacy of our brain is under threat. Now two biomedical ethicists are calling for the creation of new human rights laws to ensure people are protected, including “the right to cognitive liberty” and “the right to mental integrity”.
Scientists have already developed devices capable of telling whether people are politically right-wing or left-wing. In one experiment, researchers were able to read people’s minds to tell with 70 per cent accuracy whether they planned to add or subtract two numbers. Facebook also recently revealed it had been secretly working on technology to read people’s minds so they could type by just thinking. And medical researchers have managed to connect part of a paralysed man’s brain to a computer to allow him to stimulate muscles in his arm so he could move it and feed himself.

Why is the Google Founder Secretly Building Massive Airship?
APRIL 26, 2017
Larry Page has his flying cars. Sergey Brin shall have an airship. Brin, the Google co-founder, has secretly been building a massive airship inside of Hangar 2 at the NASA Ames Research Center, according to four people with knowledge of the project. It’s unclear whether the craft, which looks like a zeppelin, is a hobby or something Brin hopes to turn into a business. “Sorry, I don’t have anything to say about this topic right now,” Brin wrote in an email. The people familiar with the project said Brin has long been fascinated by airships.
His interest in the crafts started when Brin would visit Ames, which is located next to Google parent Alphabet Inc.’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. In the 1930s, Ames was home to the USS Macon, a huge airship built by the U.S. Navy. About three years ago, Brin decided to build one of his own after ogling old photos of the Macon.In 2015, Google unit Planetary Ventures took over the large hangars at Ames from NASA and turned them into laboratories for the company. Brin’s airship, which isn’t an Alphabet project, is already taking shape inside one. Engineers have constructed a metal skeleton of the craft, and it fills up much of the enormous hangar.

Google steps up efforts to root out Fake News’
APRIL 25, 2017
Google is making changes to its search algorithm to promote more authoritative content and demote “low quality” content such as Holocaust denials. The Internet giant is responding to growing pressure to make sure the top answers it provides to people’s search queries are accurate and do not contribute to the spread of misinformation, conspiracy

theories, hoaxes and offensive content on the Web. People searching Google will be able to more easily flag search results that are “unexpected, inaccurate or offensive,” says Ben Gomes, vice president of engineering for Google Search. And search quality raters have received new guidance on how to spot and report this content, too. A fraction, about 0.25%, of searches returns offensive or misleading content, according to Google.

The Clock Is Ticking on America’s Debt Bomb and It’s About to Speed Up
APRIL 25, 2017
The Federal Reserve is getting ready to raise its target interest rate after allowing it to sit at historically low levels for years. With $20 trillion in national debt, this could be an expensive proposition for Washington and taxpayers. Justin Bogie, a senior policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation, says interest on this debt could eventually cost the United States more than it spends on things like national defense.
“Right now, we’re just a couple percentage of the budget,” he told CBN News. “But by the end of 10 years, it’s going to be over 6 or 7 percent of the budget, almost $770 billion a year, more than national defense,” Bogie noted that government estimates show the national debt could nearly double by 2046. He says there is plenty of blame to go around, beginning with lawmakers on Capitol Hill who have promised to scale back spending but failed to make it happen.

Shake off the Spirit of Python Into the Fire
APRIL 25, 2017
(By Christy Johnston) Have you felt as though you have been easily distracted from your purpose and vision? Have you felt worn out and beaten down in recent months? You started off the year strong, but somewhere along the way it felt as though the wind was knocked from you—either through circumstances or just feeling weary and exhausted with no explanation of why? This accurately describes our own (mine and Nate’s) experience in the past few months. I believe the Holy Spirit led me to the
story in Acts 16:16-40 to give me the right tools for the opposition that has come against us, and I want to share them with you. I believe that many in the body of Christ have been facing resistance from the spirit of Python. Acts 16:16 in The Passion Translation (TPT) tells it like this: “One day, as we were going to the house of prayer, we encountered a young slave girl who had an evil spirit of divination, the spirit of Python. She had earned great profits for her owners by being a fortune-teller.”

Catholics Outraged Kim Kardashain Portraying Herself as the Virgin Mary

APRIL 25, 2017
Many Roman Catholics have been speaking out against reality TV star Kim Kardashian presenting herself as the Virgin Mary in images promoting marijuana. Kardashian posted a number of messages on Instagram and Twitter last week promoting marijuana paraphernalia, along with a white Kimoji candle that bears the image of the reality star depicted as the Virgin Mary. Townhall called it an “absurd move” by Kardashian,
given that in 2015 she had her daughter, North, baptized at St. James Cathedral, an Armenian Apostolic church in Jerusalem. Bill Donohue of The Catholic League noted in an article on CNS News that the Kimoji candle sells for $18 on Kardashian’s website. “It is placed between two other items for sale: a ‘fire weed sock’ and an ‘a– tray;’ the former celebrates marijuana use and the latter is a photo of her bare mammoth behind,” Donohue said.

Air Force to launch test missile off California coast…
APRIL 25, 2017
An unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile will be launched Wednesday from Vandenberg Air Force Base to test the weapon’s effectiveness, accuracy and readiness, according to the Air Force Global Strike Command. The Minuteman III missile test launch will occur between 12:01 and 6:01 a.m. from the north end of the base near Lompoc, according to Vandenberg’s 30th Space Wing.
The 576th Flight Test Squadron, which will help oversee the operational test launch, is responsible for telemetry, tracking and command destruct systems on the missile. In a statement, Col. Chris Moss, Vandenberg’s 30th Space Wing commander, said missile launches are “essential to verify the status of our national nuclear force and to demonstrate our national nuclear capabilities.”

Mysterious Noise Heard Across the Globe for Nearly a Decade – Still No Explanation
APRIL 25, 2017
A mysterious and unexplainable noise has been heard and reported across the globe for nearly a decade now and to this day no one can explain what or where it is coming from. Sounding like a trumpet or a collective from a brass section of an orchestra, a selection of videos shot from the Canada to Ukraine, via the U.S., Germany and Belarus show strange goings on above us. And the eerie sounds have been continuously heard at all different times and locations for almost a decade.
What people are speculating the sounds are online… Possible theories include:
Tectonic plates grinding – Tectonic plates are pieces of the Earth’s crust and uppermost mantle, together referred to as the lithosphere. The plates are around 100 km (62 mi) thick and consist of two principal types of material: oceanic crust (also called sima from silicon and magnesium) and continental crust (sial from silicon and aluminium).

China bans certain Islamic names in Muslim-dominated region of Xinjiang
APRIL 25, 2017
Chinese authorities have released a list of some common Muslim names used in Xinjiang region that are forbidden to use for newborns from now on, according to Radio Free Asia report. Twenty-nine names, which are commonly used by the predominantly-Muslim Uighur population of the northwestern region, were featured in the document, entitled ‘Naming Rules for Ethnic Minorities’ and issued last Wednesday, according to Channel NewsAsia.
Names with strong religious meanings like Islam, Koran, Mecca, Imam, Saddam, Hajj, and Medina, as well as names that have “connotations of holy war [Jihad] or of splittism [sic – Xinjiang independence]” are included in the list, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reports, citing a police official. However, more neutral names are still allowed. If parents break the ruling, their children won’t be registered in the government household system known as ‘hukou’, which provides access to social services, like healthcare and education, the official added speaking to RFA.

Germany’s Speech Police Target Truth, Spawning Cold War Flashbacks
APRIL 25, 2017
The Stasi Museum in Berlin is a monument to the ultimate surveillance society. It is housed in the old Stasi headquarters. The Stasi were the state police of communist East Germany whose job was to spy on the population. On display is every type of spy gadget imaginable for a pre-Internet era. One in six East Germans were either full-time spies or informers for the Stasi, watching their neighbors. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 and East Germany collapsed, East Germans looked

forward to living in freedom. But now, some are beginning to wonder just how free the new Germany is. Last year a married couple was convicted for creating a Facebook group that criticized the government’s open-door migration policy. At the trial, the man complained that Germans cannot be critical of refugees without getting labeled ‘Nazi.’ And 60 others accused of writing so-called hate speech online had their homes raided by police.

America Is Unraveling And We Must Return to ‘In God We Trust’

Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has warned that the United States is “disintegrating into anger, anarchy, division” because of its “rejection of God.” The daughter of evangelist Billy Graham and founder of AnGeL Ministries told the Biblical Recorder in an interview that prayer is America’s answer. “We need God. Our nation is unraveling …The polarization seems to be paralyzing our government. There seems to be little civil discourse and lots of chaos and confusion. At the

same time, we are being threatened by terrorists who are dedicated to destroying us,” Lotz said. “God has promised to hear us, forgive us and heal us on the condition that we pray. Therefore prayer is essential. It is not an option, it is a necessity,” she added. Last year Lotz became the chairman for the National Day of Prayer Task Force (NDP), and she was asked whether the organization pushes nationalism over Christian ideals.

Iran Violating Nuclear Deal with Secret Development Near ‘Off-Limits’ Parchin Site
APRIL 25, 2017
On Friday, members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) presented satellite imagery and intelligence, said to be provided by informants working covertly inside the Iranian military, that indicates the Iranian regime is far from complying with the terms of the nuclear deal. Alireza Jafarzadeh, the deputy director of NCRI’s Washington office, presented the findings in a presentation covered by major media outlets. He said the People’s Mojahedin Organization’s network within Iran acquired the information.
“We are talking about an extensive covert operation by the Iranian regime,” Jafarzadeh said. “Our information shows that their activities have been continuing in full gear despite the JCPOA,” he said using the acronym for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name for the nuclear deal. “The engineering unit that is charged and tasked with actually building the bomb in a secret way for the Iranian regime is called the Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research,” Jafarzadeh said.

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: Strange and New Aurora Phenomenon Fascinates Scientists
APRIL 24, 2017
Meet “Steve,” a strange, new aurora feature discovered by citizen scientists and verified by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Swarm satellites. Eric Donovan, a researcher at University of Calgary in Canada, first heard of “Steve” while talking to members of a Facebook group called the Alberta Aurora Chasers, who coordinate to track and photograph the northern lights in the Canadian sky (Alberta is a province in western Canada).
While the colorful lights of an aurora normally ripple horizontally across the sky, Steve formed a distinctive purplish or greenish vertical streak. To learn more about it, Donovan coordinated with the Facebook group to match sightings of the feature with data from the Swarm satellites, which measure Earth’s magnetic field, and ground-based scientific cameras that monitor the sky.

GREAT DECEPTION – UFO Sightings Increasing Worldwide
APRIL 24, 2017
Why have sightings of unidentified flying objects around the nation more than tripled since 2001? Why is July the busiest month for U.F.O. sightings? Why did they spike in Texas in 2008, or in New Mexico in September 2015? And how in the world, or out of it, has Manhattan racked up New York State’s second-highest tally of U.F.O. sightings in this century? These questions and many others emerge from the first comprehensive statistical summary of so-called close encounters:
121,036 eyewitness accounts, organized county by county in each state and the District of Columbia, from 2001 to 2015. The unlikely compendium, “U.F.O. Sightings Desk Reference,” is the work of a couple in Syracuse, who crunched unruly data on U.F.O. reports collected by two volunteer organizations: the Mutual U.F.O. Network, or Mufon, and the National U.F.O. Reporting Center, or Nuforc.

Anglican Revolt as Church of England Softens on Homosexuality
APRIL 24, 2017
Conservative African and Asian Anglican church leaders are reportedly ready to put forth their own bishop in the Church of England in defiance of Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who they believe is softening on gay marriage. According to The Mail, conservative bishops believe the CofE is becoming too liberal on the subject of homosexuality, and are threatening to take the “nuclear option” when it comes to electing their own bishop in the U.K.
The article cited “insiders” who revealed that the matter will be decided at a meeting in Africa, which would represent a direct challenge to Welby’s authority as nominal head of Anglicans worldwide. While Welby has maintained that he continues to back the traditional definition of marriage, which is between one man and one woman, he has made several statements suggesting support for gay couples in recent years.

Pastor Confronted by Satanist Outside Planned Parenthood Facility
APRIL 24, 2017
A group of pro-life Christians gathered outside a Planned Parenthood facility in Arizona recently only to be met by a cowbell wielding Planned Parenthood ‘escort’ in what can only be described as a truly bizarre scene. The man in the video is Jeff Durbin, who the NY Post recently smeared as an ‘extremist’ hipster pastor, and he regularly stands in front of

Planned Parenthood facilities in hopes of convincing women not to go through with potential abortions. While he attempts to have rational conversations, he’s often met with uncontrollable rage, as was the case in this particular video. He pleads with her to have a coherent conversation, to which she replies with vulgarity and more cowbell. “I have the ability to engage, but I don’t engage with crazy,” she said, before launching into expletives.

God’s Perfect Method for Shredding Your Idols
APRIL 24, 2017
(By Eric Tokajer) Just imagine if you were the bride at a wedding, and the groom went to a private room to discuss the details of the service. The meeting goes a little longer than expected, and when the groom returns, the bride has married the best man, and all of the guests are celebrating in the reception. Think about what would be going through the groom’s mind at the moment he arrived in the reception hall. The swirl of hurt, anger and emotional turmoil he would be experiencing all at once. The groom confronts the bride, who responds with the words
“You took longer than we thought you would, so in fear, I decided to marry the best man today. But don’t worry; we will celebrate tomorrow as if it was our wedding that took place.” This is almost exactly the event that took place in Exodus 32: Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together around Aaron and said to him, “Come, make us gods which will go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”

UNRAVELING: Violent Protests Grip Paris After Election Results
APRIL 24, 2017
Police detained 29 people in Paris on Sunday after “anti-fascist” demonstrators became violent – hurling glass bottles and firecrackers and setting cars ablaze.Six officers and three demonstrators were injured during the protests at the Place de la Bastille. Several businesses sustained damage, Agence-France Presse reported. At least three people were arrested.Many of the left-wing protesters said they were angry at the first-round results of the presidential election in
which centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right leader Marine Le Pen emerged as the two top vote getters. “We have come here to protest against the pantomime of this election,” a protester told AFP. After the results came in, protesters who gathered at the square waved red flags and sang “No Marine and No Macron!” among other chants, The Telegraph reported. Nearby, about 300 peaceful demonstrators gathered at Place de la Republique to condemn the election results. Several danced around bonfires.

Dutch city allows pro-Hamas event, bans counter-protest
By Pamela Geller - on April 25, 2017
This is the norming of Islamic Jew-hatred. The Netherlands, and Europe in general, has chosen its future: one of darkness, slavery, and civil strife.

“Dutch city allows pro-Hamas event, bans counter-protest,” JTA, April 18, 2017:

AMSTERDAM (JTA) — In an unusual rebuke, Israel’s embassy in the Netherlands expressed “great concern” over the hosting in Rotterdam of an event organized by Hamas supporters.

The embassy published the statement Friday ahead of Saturday’s gathering of several hundred people at a conference titled “Palestinians in Europe,” which the embassy said was a front for Hamas.

Authorities had denied a request by pro-Israel activists to march in Rotterdam Saturday in protest of the gathering, which was organized by the Palestinian Return Center, or PRC, Het Paroool daily reported.

Israel outlawed PRC for its alleged affiliations with Hamas in 2010. A 2011 report by the German Ministry of the Interior stated that ““Hamas does not operate openly in Europe. Instead it uses, for instance, the Palestinian Return Center in London as a forum.”

The European Union blacklisted Hamas and regards it as an illegal terrorist group.

Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb, a Labor politician who was born in Morocco to a Muslim family and has spoken harshly against anti-Semitism, declined requests by representatives of the Jewish community to ban the gathering. He said the Dutch National Coordination Board for Counterterrorism and Security authorized the event, though a board spokesperson denied this.

Noting Israel’s concern over the gathering, the embassy’s statement also addressed the rejection of the application for the march submitted by the Christians for Israel group. “At the same time, the silent march in Rotterdam, which is the least one can and should do against those who preach hate, extremism and terror, was not allowed to take place,” the embassy wrote….

Among the speakers at the PRC conference was Dyab Abou Jahjah, a Lebanon-born activist from Belgium whom a leading daily recently fired allegedly for calling for violent attacks on Jewish Israelis. He wrote on Twitter: “by any means necessary,” in reference to an attack in which a Palestinian terrorist plowed a truck through a crowd of soldiers visiting a popular tourist spot in Jerusalem.

Jahjah — who after the 9/11 attacks of 2001 in New York spoke of his “feeling of victory” and who has called the heavily Jewish-populated city of Antwerp the “international capital of the Zionist lobby” — reiterated at the conference the statement that got him fired.
“I know there are officers of justice in the room, waiting to write down things. Let me tell you from now on: I have no problem supporting the Palestinian resistance against occupation by any means necessary,” Jahjah said, as hundreds of listeners applauded.

White House Prayer Sessions Bring God Into Governance

Since the beginning of the White House transition in January, members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet have been gathering for weekly prayer sessions led by Capitol Ministries Pastor Ralph Drollinger. Though religion has always been part of the White House, these sessions include an impressive number of the highest-ranking members of the Trump Administration.
Capitol Ministries provides Bible studies, evangelism and discipleship to political leaders in over 40 US state capitols. The ministry also hosts separate weekly Bible studies in the House and Senate.
“In terms of a country’s health and direction, when its leaders are seeking God, the nation is in a position to be blessed by God,” Drollinger told CBN News.

Though not personally observant, Trump was blessed several times by pastors and rabbis during his presidential campaign. He has yet to attend the weekly prayer sessions but last month, he held a group moment prayer after he announced the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court.

Trump Cabinet Members Praying and Studying the Bible Together
APRIL 24, 2017
Members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet are gathering for prayer weekly. Vice President Mike Pence and eight cabinet secretaries sponsor the sessions, which occur weekly in Washington. It’s led by the founder of Capitol Ministries, Ralph Drollinger, who started working on arranging the Bible study during the Trump team’s transition to the White House. Sponsors include Vice President Pence; Secretaries Betsy DeVos, Ben Carson, Sonny Perdue, Rick Perry, Tom
Price and Jeff Sessions; EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. These are some of the most influential people in the U.S. government gathering weekly to grow themselves spiritually.”In terms of a country’s health and direction, when its leaders are seeking God, the nation is in a position to be blessed by God in ways that are ‘far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think,'” Drollinger tells Beltway Buzz referring to Ephesians 3:20.

Implants will unlock some hidden human potential – or do irreparable damage to our existence
APRIL 23, 2017
Scifi writer Jon Wallace considers whether implants will unlock some hidden human potential – or do irreparable damage to our existence Last month, The Engineer reported on progress towards bionic eye implants. An array of silicon nanowires arranged in an electrode grid, implanted behind the retina and linked to a wireless device, has potential to restore sight. Once again engineering news astounds and delights – the scifi eye given life. Technological implants play a solid role in science fiction as a crucial component of the idea of the ‘transhuman’: that is, an evolutionary
leap that sees mankind combine with technology to alter its perception and abilities.Interest in implants tends particularly towards the neural interface: as science has come to understand consciousness as more a product of the brain’s complex functions (as opposed to the awareness granted an immortal soul), so science fiction has explored the fascinating prospect of tampering with our brain’s computing.

Man Who Identifies as Woman Sues State of Idaho Over Refusal to Change Birth Certificate
APRIL 23, 2017
A man who identifies as a woman has filed a lawsuit against the state of Idaho over its refusal to change his birth certificate from male to female. The 28-year-old man, who is only being identified as F.V., was born in Idaho but now lives in Hawaii. According to the complaint filed on Tuesday, F.V. has had his name changed on his driver’s license, passport and social security records, and would like to have his birth certificate changed as well.
“On March 21, 2017, F.V. contacted Idaho’s Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics to inquire if [he] could change the gender marker on [his] birth certificate. [He] was informed by staff that [he] could not do so,” the legal challenge, filed by Lambda Legal, reads. As there is no law regarding the matter in Idaho, it is believed that F.V.’s request for an amended birth certificate was declined because state representatives felt that they lacked the legal authority to reissue the document.

11 Facts That Prove That The U.S. Economy In 2017 Is In Far Worse Shape Than It Was In 2016
APRIL 23, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) There is much debate about where the U.S. economy is ultimately heading, but what everybody should be able to agree on is that economic conditions are significantly worse this year than they were last year. It is being projected that U.S. economic growth for the first quarter will be close to zero, thousands of retail stores are closing, factory output is falling, and restaurants and automakers have both fallen on very hard times.
As economic activity has slowed down, commercial and consumer bankruptcies are both rising at rates that we have not seen since the last financial crisis. Everywhere you look there are echoes of 2008, and yet most people still seem to be in denial about what is happening. The following are 11 facts that prove that the U.S. economy in 2017 is in far worse shape than it was in 2016…

Americans Drowning in Trillion Dollars of Credit Card Debt
APRIL 23, 2017
Rising credit card interest rates are pushing Americans deeper into a long-term debt trap. Americans now owe $1 trillion in credit card debt, with an average monthly balance of about $9,600 for borrowers who don’t pay their cards in full each month. A year ago, a credit card holder making only minimum payments shelled out about $1,185 in annual interest, on
average, said Ben Woolsey of CreditCards.com. After three quarter-point hikes by the Federal Reserve — a cost that banks pass on almost immediately to card holders — credit card borrowers are now forking over $1,254, or $69 more a year, in interest, on average.Two more rate hikes are on the table for 2017, which would bring the total to $1,301, or $116 a year in interest.

3.7 magnitude earthquake strikes Colorado with tremors felt 200 miles away
APRIL 23, 2017
A 3.7 magnitude earthquake struck northwestern Colorado late Saturday morning at 11:48 a.m. MDT. The rumbling sounded like an explosion. Everything was rattling even 200 miles away. Must have been pretty scary. The temblor hit at 11:48 a.m. MDT about three miles west-northwest of the town of Rangely, in Blanco County. It had a depth of approximately 4 miles.
The quake was felt by several people, including Rangely Police Department Dispatcher Miranda Hayes, who explains her scary experience: “It sounded like an explosion. Everything in the building was shaking, cabinets and equipment was rattling. It was pretty scary.” But it wasn’t just felt in Colorado.

Twin earthquakes shake western Turkey
APRIL 23, 2017
Two mid-size earthquakes, 200 km away and 1 hour apart, shook western Turkey causing widespread anxiety. Some 100 km away from the closest shock, In Izmir, the country’s third-largest city, many people ran outside. Although construction quality has improved over the years, many people are unsure about the strength of their buildings. People who feel an earthquake should drop, cover and hold on to protect themselves from falling objects, as the majority of the
earthquake injuries are caused by falling objects and not from collapsed buildings. In general, people are advised not enter damaged buildings until authorities check their safety.Earthquakes are common in this part of the world as many of the natural beauties of the Turkish riviera such as valleys and coves are brought by the faults. Paired up with a great climate, this terrain made Turkey the 6th most visited country in the world.

‘Socially Accepted But Immoral Lifestyles’ In The Church Will Be Exposed And ‘Judgment Starts Now’
APRIL 23, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Judgment begins in the House of God, and those that are playing around with sin need to stop before it is too late. In recent weeks, I have been writing much about the prophetic voices that have been warning about the “exposure” and the “great shaking” that are coming to the Church. If you choose to put yourself out there as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, you can’t embrace great sin and expect that there won’t be any consequences. Our God is a holy and awesome
God, and the only way that any of us are going to make it through what is coming is to live in holiness. The Scriptures tell us that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, and there isn’t a lot of the fear of God in our churches today, but there will be soon. The first prophecy that I want to share with you today comes from Pastor James Durham. If you are not familiar with the incredible career of Pastor James Durham, the following is a short bio that comes directly from his website…

Most First-Time Visitors Decide if They’ll Return to Your Church in the First 10 Minutes
APRIL 23, 2017
(By Carey Nieuwhof) It’s hard to believe, but according to people who study these things, first-time guests to your church make up their minds whether they’re coming back or not in the first 10 minutes of their visit. Think about that. Before they hear the first note of music, before they hear the first word of a sermon or before anyone stands up and says “welcome” in the service, most first-time guests have already made a conscious or subconscious decision about whether they’re coming back.
What might be hanging in the balance is someone’s opportunity to embrace Jesus. Recently, on Episode 132 of my Leadership Podcast, I had a far-ranging conversation on a guest’s first 10 minutes at a church with Greg Atkinson, author of Secrets of a Secret Church Shopper.

65 Test Positive for TB at Texas Border Senior Center
APRIL 23, 2017
An uncomfortably high number of positive tests results for tuberculosis came back to a west Texas border senior day care center, putting city health officials on alert as they monitor the cases to see if any show signs of active TB. The City of El Paso Department of Public Health confirmed Wednesday that 65 TB tests came back positive following the preliminary testing of 199 individuals in April.
The health department began testing people at a local adult day care after one person in the center’s care tested positive for the sometimes fatal pulmonary disease. The venue where the swarm of positive TB diagnoses occurred is the La Victoria Adult Day Care Center, according to the El Paso Times. Officials believe all those tested may have had contact with patient zero. However, officials remain vigilant. More center members and workers could have been exposed to the bacteria.

Harvard Guide Says Gender Can ‘Change From Day to Day’
APRIL 23, 2017
The office of BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard University has released a guide that says for some people, gender identity can “change from day to day.” The school-sponsored flier, which was distributed to students on the elite Ivy League campus, said for some “gender is fluid and changing,” and it “can be affirmed and/or expressed in many ways.” “Transphobic misinformation is a form of systemic violence,”
the document goes on to state. “Fixed binaries and biological essentialism, manifest in gendered language, misgendering someone, and the policing of trans bodies, threaten the lives of trans people.” On “Fox & Friends Weekend” this morning, conservative millennial blogger Allie Stuckey said Harvard is supposed to be a bastion of intelligent and productive discourse, and this guide stands in direct opposition to that.

UPDATE: Muslim Man Charged After Revealing Guns Outside Christian Conference
APRIL 23, 2017
It now appears that charges have been made! On April 21 South Dakota State Attorney General Marty Jackley announced charges of terrorism threats against Ehab Jaber. The Capital-Journal reports that the charges represent “a Class 5 felony with a maximum sentence of five years.” In a Facebook Live video allegedly filmed in a car outside a Christian conference in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, a Muslim man identified as Ehab Jaber brandishes numerous guns and warns people to “be scared.”
The video was republished by the New York Post. In it, Jaber can be seen pulling a pistol from his vehicle’s console, another from a holster on his waist, and yet another from down near his feet (or an ankle holster). He eventually reaches behind the driver’s seat to grab AK and AR-style rifles. He appears to hold up numerous magazines for the rifles while saying, “That’s how I travel. That’s how I ***** travel.” He talks as he grabs the guns, saying, “Be scared,” and, “Be f*cking terrified,” as he holds the guns up.

Evangelicals and Pentecostals Are More Likely Than Other Christians to Be Persecuted
APRIL 25, 2017
Evangelicals and Pentecostal Christians are most at risk among persecuted Christians in part because of their zeal to evangelize, a new study shows. Key findings of “In Response to Persecution,” a new study of Notre Dame’s Under Caesar’s Sword project, were revealed Thursday at the National Press Club where panelists mentioned several times during a discussion that evangelicals and Pentecostals are targeted for persecution more intensely than mainline, Catholic, and Orthodox believers for several reasons.

In many nations, the report reads, “evangelicals and Pentecostals are comparatively recent arrivals and thus have not established patterns relating to surrounding populations and government to the same degree with churches with centuries of history in a given region.” They are also perceived as being supported by like-minded believers in the West, the research finds.

From corn to cattle, gene editing is about to “supercharge” agriculture
APRIL 22, 2017
Corn isn’t the sexiest crop but it’s one of the most important. It’s the most abundant grain on Earth, used as food and biofuel around the globe. In ancient times, Mesoamericans thrived on it, waged wars over it. Their myths claimed corn was the matter from which gods created mankind itself. But, just as corn helped create these civilizations, these civilizations helped create corn through meticulous selective breeding. Today’s grain hardly resembles its ancestors. Compared to the wild plant first cultivated by ancient Mexicans some ten thousand years ago, modern corn is a super mutant. And yet, after all those thousands of years of cultivation,
just two main genes are thought to be responsible for the evolution of the corn we eat today. Selective breeding is painstakingly slow and imprecise. But that’s all about to change. New gene-editing tools like CRISPR/Cas9 now let scientists hack into genomes, make precise incisions, and insert desired traits into plants and animals. We’ll soon have corn with higher crop yields, mushrooms that don’t brown, pigs with more meat on the bone, and disease-resistant cattle. Changes that took years, decades, or even centuries, can now be made in a matter of months. In the next five years you might eat tortilla chips made from edited corn. By 2020 you might drink milk from an edited cow.

Scientists Baffled By Huge Object Lurking At Edge Of The Solar System
APRIL 22, 2017
This article was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article. Ever since enthusiasm started growing over the possibility that there could be a ninth major planet orbiting the sun beyond Neptune, astronomers have been busy hunting it. One group is investigating four new moving objects found by members of the public to see if they are potential new solar system discoveries. As exciting as this is, researchers are also making discoveries that question the entire prospect of a ninth planet.
One such finding is our discovery of a minor planet in the outer solar system: 2013 SY99. This small, icy world has an orbit so distant that it takes 20,000 years for one long, looping passage. We found SY99 with the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope as part of the Outer Solar System Origins Survey. SY99’s great distance means it travels very slowly across the sky. Our measurements of its motion show that its orbit is a very stretched ellipse, with the closest approach to the sun at 50 times that between the Earth and the sun (a distance of 50 “astronomical units”).

Researchers developing self-destructing bacteria probiotic
APRIL 22, 2017
As resistance to antibiotics grows in the U.S., researchers are looking for new ways to fight germs like Clostridium difficile, a bacterium that can cause fatal infections in hospitals and nursing homes. One way to do that: a “CRISPR pill” that instructs harmful bacteria to self-destruct. CRISPR is the powerful gene-editing technology already being explored as a way to precisely edit human genes to cure diseases (see “Can CRISPR Save Ben Dupree?”).
But the technology’s versatility is such that it’s being studied for a huge range of other uses. Just last week scientists in Boston showed they could craft CRISPR into cheap, simple diagnostic tests. Now scientists want to turn it into ultra-precise antimicrobial treatments to “specifically kill your bacteria of choice,” says food scientist Jan-Peter Van Pijkeren of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

School-Issued Computers ‘Spy’ on Children Without Parental Consent
APRIL 22, 2017
A new report finds that, under the guise of “personalized learning,” school-issued computer devices — now distributed to one-third of K-12 students in schools across the United States — are serving to collect and store an unprecedented amount of personal data on children without their parents’ notice or consent. A newly released investigation by
Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) reveals student use of technology in school has grown at a profound rate, especially with free or low-fee devices issued by schools. The education technology industry, according to the report, is now valued at over $8 billion. Approximately half of the devices issued to U.S. children are Google Chromebooks, with about 30 million students, teachers, and school officials using Google’s G Suite for Education, observes EFF.

Vending machine at the UC Davis campus dispenses Plan B pills
APRIL 22, 2017
Students at UC Davis can now press A4 for Plan B. A new vending machine in a University of California Davis study room traded the usual Hot Cheetos and Red Bull for condoms, tampons, pregnancy tests, Advil, and the morning after pill (or Plan B). They call it the “Wellness To Go” Machine. Stocking contraception rather than caffeine may seem out of place in
a study area, but to former UC Davis student Parteek Singh it makes total sense. Although the Wellness To Go machine was installed in early April, Singh spent two years working to make it happen. “The more skeptical and negativity I got from people like ‘oh it’s not going to happen,’ kind of pushed me more,” Singh told CNN affiliate KTXL.

Sharia Law Advocate to Give Commencement Speech at Taxpayer-Funded University
APRIL 22, 2017
There’s been some controversy after the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health announced a pro-Palestinian Sharia Law advocate will serve as the school’s commencement speaker. “I am delighted to confirm that Linda Sarsour will indeed speak at our June 1 commencement at the Apollo Theater,” said Barbara Aaron, chief of staff to the school’s dean, Ayman El-Mohandes.
Now, some, including state Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), are saying that Sarsour’s activisim and beliefs make her unfit to serve as speaker at the taxpayer-funded university’s commencement. “She is someone who associates with radical Islamists,” Hikind said. “She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing.” READ MORE http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/04/22/sharia-law-advocate-linda-sarsour-give-commencement-speech-taxpayer-funded-university

French Presidential Candidate: Islamic ‘Preachers of Hate Should Be Expelled, Their Mosques Closed’
APRIL 22, 2017
French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen told reporters on Friday that the country should ban Islamic hate preachers and close their mosques in light of the most recent terror attack in the nation. “Our country France has once again had the barbarity of a terrorist assault in the heart of our capital,” she said. “Once again it was the police who were targeted and paid for the fight against radical Islam with their blood.
It is a monstrous ideology which has declared war on our nation, on our reason, and on our civilization.” “The Islamist, Salafist ideology has no right to be in France and should be banned. Preachers of hate should be expelled and their mosques closed,” Le Pen declared. On Thursday, Karim Cheurfi, 39, who had previously been convicted of attempted murder, opened fire on a police van with a Kalashnikov, killing officer Xavier Jugelé, 37. Police became involved in a shootout with Cheurfi, which resulted in the terrorist’s death. Two officers were injured during the confrontation.

Is It Ok for Christians to Listen to Secular Music?
APRIL 22, 2017
It may not rise to the level of justification by works versus justification by faith alone, but the debate over whether or not Christians should listen to secular music is a prominent one. Many Christian parents strive to think deeply and clearly about this issue as they raise their children to honor the Lord. Into the fray of this debate comes a video published by Joe Solomon who tackles this and many other ethical issues on his YouTube channel.
Solomon reminds viewers of a basic precept that in general, music affects your mood, which in turn affects your behavior. This does not mean that we will always act out on what is being said in music, but we have to acknowledge that not only does music provide us information that shapes our worldview, but it will also bring a mood, whether we acknowledge it or not. For instance, a couple who is wanting to be romantic will probably not listen to head banging rap nor will criminals listen to slow R & B before they rob a bank.

Over a million people are descending in South Africa for massive prayer gathering
APRIL 22, 2017
In the biggest recorded prayer gathering in Africa, with over 1,7 million tickets given away already, South Africans are taking to their knees this weekend to pray for our country. Apparently, the tickets were only to allocate parking, which means that there may very well be over 3 million people attending. Concerned citizens of all races, colors, cultures and religious denominations have already started descending on the free event near Bloemfontein. “After 22 April, South Africa will be a changed country,” says Angus Buchan.
He is referring to the “It’s time” gathering that will take place on a farm 4 km outside Bloemfontein and is expected to draw a crowd of over a million South Africans. All indications are that this will be the largest day of prayer in the history of South Africa. “The day of prayer is intended for all South Africans of all genders, races and denominations who are concerned about the malice, hatred, violence, murder and corruption in the country,” says Buchan.

The Popocatépetl volcano exhaled 77 times in the last 24 hours sending low amounts of water vapor, gas and ash in the sky. Moreover, 3 explosions were registered yesterday at 3:58 pm and 9:02 pm, and today at 03:18 am.Additionally, a volcanotectonic earthquake with preliminary magnitude Mc = 1.2 was recorded at 00:36 am today.During the night and
dawn, incandescence was observed over the crater and while writing this report, the volcano emits volcanic gases.The Cenapred asks not to approach the volcanic peak, especially the crater due to falling ballistic fragments.There should be light to moderate ash rains in nearby communities and the possibility of pyroclastic flows and short-range mud flows. Therefore the safety radius of 12 kilometers has been kept in place.

Russian military aircraft fly off US coast for the 4th Time in Past 4 Days
APRIL 22, 2017
Russian military aircraft were spotted flying off the coast of Alaska for the fourth time in as many days, a spokesperson for the North American Aerospace Defense Command told CNN on Friday. The two most recent sightings occurred late Wednesday and on Thursday, with the first involving two IL-38 maritime patrol aircraft and the second involving two Tu-95 nuclear-capable Bear bombers. Russian aircraft never entered US airspace but US F-22s and Canadian CF-18s jets
were dispatched to perform an intercept during Thursday’s encounter, according to NORAD. “Obviously — we are aware of it,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters on Friday. “This is not highly unusual … but we monitor everything.” On Thursday, the bombers entered the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone 700 nautical miles southwest of Anchorage — significantly farther from the US coastline than two other encounters that occurred on Monday and Tuesday.

PROPHECY WATCH: Turkey’s President Dreams of “New Ottoman Empire”
APRIL 21, 2017
As Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, continues to consolidate power in the formerly secular nation, one of the foremost experts on Middle East geopolitics is sounding a desperate warning. Erdogan is just getting started. “I’ve been saying this for 12 years,” said Joel Richardson, New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist” and “Mideast Beast.” “I’ve said for years: ‘Watch Turkey. Watch Turkey. It’s going to become a radical nationalist Islamist nation.’”
Richardson made the comments on a recent episode of the “Shaun Tabatt Show” as the author discussed his newest book, “Mystery Babylon.” Though Richardson believes Saudi Arabia and its city of Mecca is the real “Mystery Babylon,” he says Turkey is turning out to be an end times actor in its own right, and the tensions between the Sunni Islamic powers of Turkey and Saudi Arabia will shape the Middle East in the coming years.

Feds to Deploy Facial Recognition Tech at Border Checkpoints
APRIL 21, 2017
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is planning to unveil a facial recognition program that will track visa holders at U.S. airports while using the same technology on drones to patrol the southern border. The system, called Biometric Exit, is currently being tested on a one-way flight from Atlanta to Tokyo and is expected to be rolled out to more airports this
summer after being expedited by the Trump Administration, according to a report from The Verge. The current practice used by Customs and Border Protection agents is to take photos and fingerprints of every visa holder who enters the U.S., but there is no system in place to verify that a visa holder has left before their visa expires. This is where Biometric Exit comes in. READ MORE http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2017/04/19/feds-deploy-facial-recognition-tech-border-checkpoints/

Transgender Teen Suing Virginia School District Named One of Time’s ‘100 Most Influential People’
APRIL 21, 2017
A transgender student born female who is suing a Virginia school district over not being allowed to use boys’ restrooms was named one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People.” Seventeen-year-old Gavin Grimm is embroiled in a lawsuit against Gloucester County School District over being denied entry into restrooms designated for boys and is refusing to use one of three single-use gender neutral restrooms on campus.
In a piece authored by activist Jamie Mock in Time magazine, Grimm was described as being influential for being involved in what many believe could be a landmark court case. “Gavin is the cherubic face of a reductive, dirty debate about trans people’s right to exist in public spaces without hostility, harassment and violence,” wrote Mock. “So many are made to feel as if they should hide, pretend or perish. Gavin’s refusal to be treated unjustly is an enduring reminder that we will not be stalled.”

Discerning the Devil’s Customized Plan Against You
APRIL 21, 2017
(By Kyle Winkler) Since the Garden of Eden, the devil has honed his skills on presenting his bait. And Peter gives us a glimpse into Satan’s methods. “Keep alert,” Peter instructed. “Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour” (1 Pet. 5:8, NRSV).
As I explore in depth in my book, Activating the Power of God’s Word, Peter’s depiction of Satan as a lion is not coincidental. You see, a lion has a small heart and lungs relative to the size of its body. This means a lion doesn’t have the stamina to run after his victim for too long. Instead, the lion studies his victim to determine its weakest moment and the opportune time for him to pounce. The devil takes the same approach with us. That is, he studies our lives to determine both how and when to attack or tempt. And he uses the information he gathers to build a customized plan against each of us.Is there a struggle in your life that keeps presenting itself over and over again? Whatever it is, this is your “signature sin,” or your “signature struggle.” It is the one dominant, personal weakness that keeps getting you in trouble.

Coronal Hole From Sun Could Put Power Grids In Danger – Produce Mass-Blackouts
APRIL 21, 2017
A Giant fissure has opened across the Sun and is spewing rapid solar winds toward our planet. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory got wind of the massive hole on Friday morning. This coronal hole is a vast region where the Sun’s magnetic field tears apart, allowing solar wind to escape. Super-charged solar winds flowing from the Sun’s atmosphere are expected to reach Earth on April 23 or 24. According to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this could whip up a “moderately strong” geomagnetic storm.
These kinds of storms are behind the beautiful natural phenomenon, the Northern Lights. But a storm of this magnitude could have an effect on power grids and navigation systems across the Earth’s surface. G2 storms affect plane and military radio systems, spacecraft operations and could trigger voltage alarms or cause equipment damage in power systems. Scientists are growing increasingly concerned over the effect a solar explosion, flare or storm could have on humanity.

Massive Power Outage Strikes San Francisco – 90,000 Without Power
APRIL 21, 2017
A massive power outage in San Francisco on Friday morning caused a blackout in neighborhoods across the city, from the Financial District to the Presidio, forcing the closure of businesses, a federal courthouse and a BART station, officials said. A spokesman for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. said at least 90,000 customers lost power. BART’s Montgomery Station was closed due to the outage, which struck after 9 a.m.
BART rains were running through Montgomery Station without stopping. Cable cars were also impacted and shuttles were put in place to provide service, according to the Municipal Transportation Agency. There were reports of traffic lights out in many city intersections, and traffic was backing up on downtown streets. The Phillip Burton Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse at 450 Golden Gate Ave. was among the many buildings closed down by the outage.

Pro-Weed ‘Nuns’ Embark On Perverted Healing Mission
APRIL 21, 2017
The Sisters of the Valley, California’s self-ordained “weed nuns,” are on a mission to heal and empower women with their cannabis products. Based near the town of Merced in the Central Valley, which produces over half of the fruit, vegetables and nuts grown in the United States, the Sisters of the Valley grow and harvest their own cannabis plants. The sisterhood stresses that its seven members, despite the moniker,
do not belong to any order of the Catholic Church. “We’re against religion, so we’re not a religion. We consider ourselves Beguine revivalists, and we reach back to pre-Christian practices,” said 58-year-old Sister Kate, who founded the sisterhood in 2014. The group says its Holy Trinity is the marijuana plant, specifically hemp, a strain of marijuana that has very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound in the plant.

‘Hunger Games’ Star Claims Gender Can Be ‘Whatever You Want It to Be’
APRIL 21, 2017
Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg says she rejects the traditional concept of gender, claiming instead that it is a construct that can be “pretty much whatever you want it to be.” “I tend to believe that gender as we’ve set it up in current-day society doesn’t actually exist,” Stenberg told People magazine in an interview. “I’ve said before that I’m comfortable
with using the pronouns ‘they’ or ‘them’ alongside ‘she’ and ‘her’ just because that’s a conversation that’s important to me.” “I don’t necessarily always prescribe to female pronouns just because I don’t think that pronouns are necessarily very meaningful,” Stenberg continued. The actress, who last year came out as bisexual via a Snapchat video, has previously voiced her support for a number of left-wing or gender-based causes.

College Argues that Gospel Message incites “hostility” and “fighting words.”
APRIL 21, 2017
A Georgia college has filed a motion to dismiss a First Amendment lawsuit by claiming it removed a Christian student from campus because his discussion of the Gospel incited “hostility” and “fighting words.” The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) is suing Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC) for censoring college student Chike Uzuegbunam.
Uzuegbunam was repeatedly stopped from discussing his Christian faith on campus, even after following the school’s strict guidelines. The school required Uzuegbunam to reserve a space on the campus’ free-speech zone, an area that is only 0.0015% of the campus, and open only 18 hours a week, according to an ADF’s press statement.

The Muslim man who went live on his Facebook page with disturbing threats towards attendees of a Christian conference will not face criminal charges. “He had a lot of guns with him, but he wasn’t breaking any laws,” KDLT quoted Sioux Falls Police Officer Sam Clemens. “He didn’t threaten anybody directly. He didn’t threaten any groups of people, anything like
that, and it’s not illegal to carry guns or have guns with you,” he explained.The infamous Facebook Live video shows Ehab Jaber holding up a copy of the Koran before scanning a crowd of believers at the Worldview Weekend rally in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. An estimated 500 men, women, and children attended the event, not realizing they were secretly being recorded by Jaber.

Hell Is the Default Destination – Not Heaven

(By J.D Greear) Most people assume that as long as they don’t mess things up in their time here on earth, they’ll go to heaven when they die. But Scripture says the opposite. God created us for heaven, but the rebellion of the human race, in which we are all participating, has destined us for hell. Hell, not heaven, is our default destination. Notice the breadth of who is described as going to hell in Revelation 21:8:
“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death” (ESV).

Times Up! Feds to seek arrest of Wikileaks Assange…
APRIL 21, 2017
US authorities have prepared charges to seek the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, US officials familiar with the matter tell CNN. The Justice Department investigation of Assange and WikiLeaks dates to at least 2010, when the site first gained wide attention for posting thousands of files stolen by the former US Army intelligence analyst now known as Chelsea Manning. Prosecutors have struggled with whether the First Amendment precluded the prosecution of Assange, but now believe they have found a way to move forward.
During President Barack Obama’s administration, Attorney General Eric Holder and officials at the Justice Department determined it would be difficult to bring charges against Assange because WikiLeaks wasn’t alone in publishing documents stolen by Manning. Several newspapers, including The New York Times, did as well. The investigation continued, but any possible charges were put on hold, according to US officials involved in the process then.

APRIL 21, 2017
Hurricane season doesn’t start until June, but a rare April tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic. A weather system morphed into Tropical Storm Arlene on Thursday, becoming the first named storm of the year, the National Hurricane Center said. As of Friday morning, Arlene had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph and was moving northwest at 28 mph.
The storm is far from land, about 815 miles west of the Azores. “We are watching what is now Tropical Storm Arlene, which is about 2,000 miles away from Florida and moving away every hour,” News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. The system is expected to dissipate Friday or Saturday and no coastal watches or warnings are in effect.

House to Unveil New Health Care Bill Over the Weekend
APRIL 20, 2017
According to reports, Republican leaders in the House of Representatives are “close” to having a deal on a new bill to begin the process of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The goal, according to those reports, is to distribute the text of the bill Friday and over the weekend in order to have another showdown vote over the measure next week prior to the end of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office. The reports state the

leadership was “close” to having the votes to pass it out of the House, but many legislators want to see the bill before they commit to voting for it. Politico reports the president “seems more engaged” this time around than he was for the first effort, which failed to get enough GOP support to move ahead to the Senate. Democrats are marching in lockstep in opposition to any changes to Obamacare, claiming it doesn’t need to be replace, despite widespread loss of insurers and skyrocketing out-of-pocket costs for average Americans.

Henry Gruver’s Incredible Vision Of Russian Submarines Launching Nuclear Missiles At The United States
APRIL 20, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) A little more than 30 years ago, God showed Henry Gruver that someday Russian submarines lurking very close to our coastlines would launch an absolutely devastating nuclear first strike on the United States. If you are not familiar with Henry Gruver, he is truly a remarkable man of God, and I do not use that term lightly. He has literally spent thousands of hours prayer walking through cities all over the globe, and signs, wonders, and miracles have followed his ministry for decades.
He has never sought to make a big name for himself because his priority has always been following the Lord’s agenda. So many people today claim to “get a word” about global events, but they don’t actually physically see or hear anything. Of course, many of those “words” end up falling to the ground because they were never from God in the first place. But with Henry Gruver, the things that I am about to share with you were actually physically seen with his own eyes while he was awake. Many refer to such experiences as “open visions”, and they can often be absolutely overwhelming to those that receive them because they are so powerful.

Kentucky Governor Signs Bill Authorizing Elective Social Studies Courses on the Bible
APRIL 21, 2017
The Republican governor of Kentucky has signed a bill that authorizes the creation of elective social studies courses on the Bible in public schools. House Bill 128 overwhelmingly passed the state Senate last month 34-4 after clearing the House 80-14. As previously reported, the legislation was introduced by Rep. DJ Johnson, R-Owensboro, who says that its purpose is “to provide guidance, uniformity,
and constitutional support for the local school boards that may be wanting to offer such courses, but are unsure of the way to proceed.” Under policies to be crafted by the Kentucky Department of Education, the course would “teach students knowledge of biblical content, characters, poetry, and narratives that are prerequisites to understanding contemporary society and culture, including literature, art, music, mores, oratory, and public policy.”

Why Satan Will Do Everything He Can to Keep You From This Daily Habit
APRIL 21, 2017
(By Brandon D. Smith) Blockbuster superhero movies and the latest iteration of the Star Wars movie franchise show the power of a good story. Grown men and young children alike dress up in costumes, stand in line for hours and spend $62 on a bucket of popcorn just to watch larger-than-life heroes do the unthinkable. People are riveted by a good story that seems otherworldly, and they’re willing to scrounge up the money and time to invest if they’re convinced they’ll enjoy it.
In my work with the Christian Standard Bible, I came across research from the Barna Group stating that people don’t read the Bible for a few reasons but primarily because they don’t have enough time or struggle to relate to the language. The stats showed that 88 percent of American households own a Bible, but only 37 percent of people read it once a week or more. No doubt their frustration with trying to understand words, phrases and concepts in Scripture is a reasonable frustration. However, as most preachers have told their congregations, people have plenty of time to read, but they simply don’t want to make the time.

Daily Diet Soda TRIPLES Stroke Risk…
APRIL 21, 2017
Just one diet drink a day can triple the risk of a deadly stroke, a study suggests. The researchers also found links to dementia described as a “worrying association” by experts. But the findings were dismissed by some British authorities, while others have called for more investigation.
The US study found those who drank a can of artificially sweetened pop — such as Diet Coke or Pepsi Max — daily were at three times the risk of suffering the most common form of stroke compared to non-drinkers. They were also 2.9 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s. But after accounting for all lifestyle factors, the researchers found the link to dementia was statistically insignificant.

Only 7 Christian Families Remain in Iraq’s Largest Christian Town
APRIL 20, 2017
Evangelist Franklin Graham spent his Easter weekend touring churches and towns left desecrated and destroyed by the Islamic State terrorist organization in Northern Iraq and claimed that only about seven families remain in what used to be the largest Christian town in Iraq. “Yesterday we went to the city of Qaraqosh, in Iraq, which used to be home to some 50,000 Christians who were forced to flee for their lives in 2014.
Now just a handful, about 7 families, remain,” Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Easter Sunday. “I visited a church that had been burned and destroyed by ISIS and met with the pastor. Incredibly, in the ashes and debris, we discovered one of our Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes that had been given to a child there at some point. I couldn’t help but wonder where the child who received this box is today.”

‘Dangerous’ new trend: Angry mobs of U.S. students shut down speech
APRIL 19, 2017
Liberal groupthink is nothing new on college campuses, but resorting to violence and intimidation to stifle views contrary to the progressive orthodoxy is a dangerous escalation, according to a prominent scholar who was recently targeted by an angry mob of students and warns free speech is under fierce assault in the U.S.
Earlier this month, the Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald experienced the hostility first-hand while visiting the West Coast, first at UCLA and then at Claremont-McKenna College. Her visit to Claremont-McKenna was the most harrowing, with protesters blocking access to the auditorium where Mac Donald was to give her presentation. Organizers then tried to have her speak via video before the event was finally canceled over security concerns.
“The day before Claremont-McKenna, I had an effort to storm the stage. That was at UCLA. At Claremont-McKenna was a blockade around the building where I was supposed to speak to prevent anyone from entering to be able to listen to me in person and interact with me,” Mac Donald told WND and Radio America. “That’s certainly the most extreme that I’ve experienced.”

Reports Of Modern Day Miracle as Pack Of Lions Reportedly Saved Christians
APRIL 19, 2017
The chief of a Christian ministry that works underground because of its outreach into Muslim-dominant communities in the Middle East is reporting a startling claim – his rescue from Islamic “militants” by a pride of lions. Pastor Paul Ciniraj is the director of Bibles for Mideast, which delivers Bibles, preaches the Gospel and plants house churches in the strife-torn region. He says, while Islam remains dominant, “thousands upon thousands of people now secretly believe in Jesus
Christ as their Savior.” House churches the group establishes are under the banner of the nondenominational Assembly of Loving God Church. A convert from Islam, pastor Paul founded the work some four decades ago and has survived a battle with leukemia. A nine-member board of directors governs the ministry.In a new report he delivered this week to WND, he says he was recovering from injuries he received in an attack by Islamic jihadists when the rescue occurred.

By 2020 Two-Thirds Of Wild Animals Will Have Been Wiped Out Over A 50 Year Period As Mass Die-Offs Accelerate All Over The Planet
APRIL 19, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) It has been called “the long extinction”. Our planet is in the process of dying, and as you will see below, this process of death and destruction appears to be accelerating. According to a report that was put out by the World Wildlife Fund and the Zoological Society of London, the number of wild animals around the globe appears to be decreasing at a rate of about 2 percent a year. 2 percent may not sound like a lot to you, but over 10 years that would mean that 20 percent of all wild animals in the world would be gone.
And according to that same report, it is being projected that the total loss of wildlife during the 50 year period from 1970 to 2020 will be a staggering 67 percent… The number of wild animals living on Earth is set to fall by two-thirds by 2020, according to a new report, part of a mass extinction that is destroying the natural world upon which humanity depends. The analysis, the most comprehensive to date, indicates that animal populations plummeted by 58% between 1970 and 2012, with losses on track to reach 67% by 2020. Researchers from WWF and the Zoological Society of London compiled the report from scientific data and found that the destruction of wild habitats, hunting and pollution were to blame.

FBI Investigating Radical Terrorists in All 50 States as Threats Hit Peak
APRIL 19, 2017
Federal authorities have open investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security, which is warning that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high with radicalized individuals in the country plotting to strike “each and every single day.” The FBI has “open terrorist investigations in all 50 states,” according to DHS Secretary John Kelly, who disclosed on Tuesday that there have been at
least 37 “ISIS-linked plots to attack our country” since 2013, a number that shows no signs of diminishing. Kelly, in his first wide-ranging public address on the threat of terrorism in America since taking office, warned that America’s borders remain wide-open and that there is evidence terror-linked individuals are exploiting these national security weaknesses and entering the United States.

Pastor and Scientist Now Searching For Jesus’ Descendants
APRIL 18, 2017
A pastor and scientist have teamed up to find Jesus’ living relatives. Joel Basile, lead pastor of Encounter Road Church in California, and Oxford University geneticist George Busby used DNA evidence to examine the Shroud of Turin, The Sudarium of Oviedo and the newly discovered bones of Jesus’ cousin, John the Baptist. “By extracting and analyzing samples of each of these holy relics, they hope to retrieve a sample of DNA that possibly belongs to Jesus or a member of
his family. They believe that if they can find a strand of Jesus’ DNA it could help identify who among us today are descendants of Jesus and provide us with new insight into the man many consider to be the most important person in history, Jesus,” according to the History Channel. Their results were revealed in a History Channel documentary, The Jesus Strand: A Search for DNA, which debuted Easter Sunday.

Young Professionals Quietly Transforming Muslim-Majority Central Asia for Christ
APRIL 18, 2017
The growth of Islamic extremism helped make 2016 the worst year ever for Christian persecution. For example, Christians in a predominantly Muslim region of Central Asia risk almost daily harassment for sharing the Gospel. Artur, not his real name, is from Uzbekistan.”I am called to be a witness for Christ, but that has been a dangerous calling,” he told CBN News. And he’s not alone. If you are a Christian living in any of the five former Soviet Republics of Uzbekistan,
Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan or Turkmenistan, you can expect intimidation, harassment — or worse — jail time, for telling others about their faith. Maksim lives in northern Tajikistan. “When the authorities discover someone has converted to Christianity, they will gather relatives, friends and family of the accused and bring him or her before an Islamic Council of Elders,” Maksim said.

Thousands Gather on Lincoln Memorial to ‘Celebrate the Name of Jesus’
APRIL 16, 2017
Thousands of believers gathered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Sunday. Captial Church in Leesburg, Va held the special sunrise service in Washington D.C. and close to 1,700 people joined to worship, pray, and hear a sermon from the church’s founder, Pastor Amos Dodge. “19 centuries, now we push into 20, have come and gone and he is the central figure of the human race,”
he shared during his message. “All the armies that have ever marched. All the navies that have ever sailed. All the parliaments that have ever sat. All the kings that have ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man on earth as much as this one solitary life,” he added.99-year-old Clarice Bailey was in the crowd listening to the sermon. She has been attending the sunrise service for the last 14 years and told CBN News she travels from West Virginia each year.

Christians Celebrate Easter in Iraqi Church Damaged by ISIS
APRIL 16, 2017
Hundreds of Iraqi Christians gathered on Sunday in a church damaged by Islamic State north of Mosul, celebrating Easter there for the first time since 2014. “God willing, the celebration of the resurrection of Christ will also mark the return and rising-up of the Christians in Iraq,” said Kyriacos Isho, 75, who was accompanied by his 12 children and grandchildren at Mar Gewargis (St George) Chaldean Catholic church in Tel Esqof. Tel Esqof, or Bishop’s Hill in Arabic,
did not sustain the same amount of damage as other Christian towns overrun by the militants three years ago in the plain of Nineveh. Kurdish Peshmerga fighters dislodged the hardline Sunni militants from Tel Esqof just a week after it had fallen, in August 2014. On Sunday, they stood guard around the church. The militants had smashed the church’s windows, though a new cross has now been put up in place of the one the militants took down.

Self-Driving Bus Capable of Speak Sign Language
APRIL 16, 2017
It’s been 15 years since a degenerative eye disease forced Erich Manser to stop driving. Today, he commutes to his job as an accessibility consultant via commuter trains and city buses, but he has trouble locating empty seats sometimes and must ask strangers for guidance. A step toward solving Manser’s predicament could arrive as soon as next year. Manser’s employer, IBM, and an independent carmaker called Local Motors are developing a self-driving, electric shuttle bus that
combines artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and smartphone apps to serve people with vision, hearing, physical, and cognitive disabilities. The buses, dubbed “Olli,” are designed to transport people around neighborhoods at speeds below 35 miles per hour and will be sold to cities, counties, airports, companies, and universities. If the buses enter production in summer 2018, as planned, they could be among the earliest self-driving vehicles on U.S. roads.

Why Turkey May Be on Collision Course With Europe
APRIL 16, 2017
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s victory in Sunday’s referendum could pave the way for pragmatic cooperation with the U.S. while setting him on a collision course with Europe, officials said. Mr. Erdogan on Sunday night declared victory, while his opposition vowed to challenge the results. Voters narrowly approved constitutional amendments that will vastly expand Mr. Erdogan’s power, giving him license to politically transform a North Atlantic Treaty Organization
member that the U.S. and Europe have come to rely as a partner in the fight against Islamic State, the Syrian war and efforts to curb the flow of migrants from the Middle East to the European Union. The White House declined to comment Sunday about the results of the referendum. A representative for the State Department said they were following the referendum voting outcome but would refrain from commenting until the results –

DEVELOPING: Hawaii Preparing Plans for responding to North Korea Attack
APRIL 16, 2017
Hawaii lawmakers want state officials to update plans for coping with a nuclear attack as North Korea develops nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that can reach the islands. The state House Public Safety Committee unanimously passed a resolution Thursday. Committee Vice Chairman Matt LoPresti says he’s not trying to spread fear. But he wants the public
to know the government is taking steps to protect them in the worst case scenario. He’s aiming to get state funding to re-equip Cold War-era fallout shelters. The resolution that moved forward Thursday said that in 1981, Oahu had hundreds of fallout shelters — “many stocked with medical kits, food, and sanitary kits.” But in later years, funding dried up, and stocks were thrown out.

DEVELOPING: China and Russia send ships after U.S. aircraft carrier
APRIL 16, 2017
China and Russia have dispatched intelligence-gathering vessels from their navies to chase the USS Carl Vinson nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which is heading toward waters near the Korean Peninsula, multiple sources of the Japanese government revealed to The Yomiuri Shimbun. It appears that both countries aim to probe the movements of the United States, which is showing a stance of not excluding military action against North Korea.

The Self-Defense Forces are strengthening warning and surveillance activities in the waters and airspace around the area, according to the sources. The aircraft carrier strike group, composed of the Carl Vinson at its core with guided-missile destroyers and other vessels, is understood to be around the East China Sea and heading north toward waters near the Korean Peninsula.

Trump Warns North Korea Threats Cannot Continue!
APRIL 16, 2017
The US and China are working on a response to the North Korean missile crisis, Donald Trump’s top security adviser has said. General HR McMaster said China had joined an international consensus that Kim Jong-un’s “threatening behavior” could not continue. The countries are working on a “range of options” in response to a failed missile test by the regime and growing tensions over its nuclear program.
Trump has urged Beijing to use its influence as North Korea’s biggest ally to resolve the crisis. The president said today that China was “working with us on the North Korean problem”. The test rocket “blew up almost immediately” after its launch from a base in Sinpo early today, the US military said. The former foreign secretary Sir Malcolm…

United States F-35 fighter jets arrive in Europe for the first time
APRIL 16, 2017
A fleet of F-35 stealth fighter jets has arrived in Europe from the United States as part of a planned NATO exercise aimed at “deterring” Russia. The F-35A Lightning II jets landed at Royal Air Force Base in Lakenheath, England Saturday, having made the journey from Hill Air Force Base, Utah. “The forward presence of F-35s support my priority of having ready and postured forces here in Europe,” said NATO’s supreme allied commander for Europe General Curtis M. Scaparrotti in an official statement.
“These aircraft, plus more importantly, the men and women who operate them, fortifies the capacity and capability of our NATO alliance.” This deployment marks the first time American F-35A fighter jets have made an appearance in Europe, though a few countries already use them as part of their air fleet. “This is an incredible opportunity for [US Air Forces in Europe] airmen and our NATO allies to host this first overseas training deployment of the F-35A aircraft,” said Air Force General Tod D. Wolters.

Major U.S. University Publishes ‘Communism for Kids’
APRIL 16, 2017
“Once upon a time, people yearned to be free of the misery of capitalism. How could their dreams come true?” That’s how the promotion for a new book for kids about the wonders of communism starts out. The book, “Communism for Kids,” has been published by a major U.S. university publisher, MIT Press, and is now available in paperback or Kindle on Amazon. The book, penned by German author Bini Adamczak and translated by Jacob Blumenfeld and Sophie Lewis, teaches children the tenets of Karl Marx through a series of fairy tales.
Adamczak reportedly specializes in political theory and “queer politics.” His thesis is that communism is “not that hard” but has not been implemented in the right way. “This little book proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism,” according to the jacket description. The book uses cartoon drawings of “lovable little revolutionaries” to help convince kids of the “evils” of capitalism.

FALLING AWAY: Denver Unveils “Church of Cannabis”
APRIL 16, 2017
For 113 years, this corner church has been a pillar of its Denver neighborhood. But with new owners come new ideas: A group of Elevationists have put weed into their worship. They say the old church is still a church. And it does still look like a church – kind of. It’s been colorfully repainted by world renowned church artist Okuna san Miguel. “We don`t believe that a church needs to necessarily be drab and boring for it to be a spiritual place,” explained Steve Berke of the International Church of Cannabis.
The sanctuary has, and now, smoking is encouraged. “Yes, you can use cannabis in this space, up in the chapel, on the patio,” Berke continued. “It’s our First Amendment right to practice our religion.” So what exactly is that religion? “Elevationism is not a replacement to your existing faith; it`s more a supplement to it,” Berke offered. “You can be a Christian and an Elevationist, you can be a Jewish and an Elevationist, as long as you believe in elevating your life to the best version of yourself.”

Orthodox & Catholic Christians celebrate Easter on same day in “Rare Convergence”
APRIL 16, 2017
Millions of Christians worldwide are celebrating the most important holiday of their faith, Easter Sunday, when they pay tribute to their belief in the resurrection of Christ after his death by crucifixion. Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia delivered his traditional Easter address to hundreds of Orthodox believers gathered at Russia’s main Orthodox church,
Christ the Savior Cathedral, which was rebuilt in late 1990s after being demolished in 1931. The patriarch called on the faithful to show care for those who desperately need support and help. “The path of the Savior is the path of love, on which the person turns from concentrating exclusively on himself to those who need our help and support,” the head of the Russian Orthodox Church said.

US army makes largest deployment of troops to Somalia since ‘Black Hawk Down’
APRIL 16, 2017
The US army has deployed dozens of troops to Somalia to train forces fighting Al-Shabab Islamist militant group in the largest deployment of troops to the country since 1993, when 18 US soldiers died in a battle dramatized in the movie Black Hawk Down. A US military official told Voice of America that the team will train-and-equip Somali and AMISOM
(African Union Mission in Somalia) forces, with the mission expected to last until the end of September. “United States Africa Command will conduct various security cooperation and/or security force assistance events in Somalia in order to assist our allies and partners,” US Africa Command spokesman Pat Barnes told the government funded Voice of America.

Muslim Man Seeking to Enforce Sharia Law in Minneapolis Neighborhood
APRIL 16, 2017
Residents in a Minneapolis neighborhood are expressing concern about a Muslim man who is seeking to enforce the “civil part of sharia law” among Islamic residents. Abdullah Rashid, 22, who just moved to the Cedar-Riverside section of the city last year, told the Star Tribune that it is his desire to turn the neighborhood into a “sharia-controlled zone,” and to teach Muslims how to live in accordance with the Islamic religion.
“I’m someone who’s dedicated to Islam and trying to help the community all ways I can,” he said. Wearing a patch that identifies himself as the “religious police” with the General Presidency of the Religious Affairs and Welfare of the Ummah, Rashid patrols the community, advising others in the predominantly Somali area that they should not drink or do drugs, nor should they fellowship with those of the opposite sex.

DEVELOPING: Over 110 Fires Continue to Spread in Florida
APRIL 17, 2017
Forest fires have continued to keep firefighters busy in Florida on Sunday. There are still 110 active fires covering 20,285 acres, according to the Florida Forestry Service. The destructive wildfires, which have been burning from the Florida-Georgia border down to Miami-Dade County, led Gov. Rick Scott to declare a state of emergency on Tuesday, which remains in effect today.

The two fires requiring the most amount of attention right now are in the Central Florida region, according to officials. One fire, in Lake County, spans 731 acres of land and is 50 percent contained, officials said. Another, in Volusia County, is largely contained but had previously covered 350 acres of land, according to officials.

80,000 Gather at Western Wall to Receive Priestly Blessing During Passover
APRIL 17, 2017
In a powerful display of the glory that once was the Jewish Temple, tens of thousands of worshipers gathered at the Kotel (Western Wall) in Jerusalem’s Old City on Thursday morning to receive the biannual Priestly Blessing from hundreds of Kohanim (men of the priestly caste). An Estimated 80,000 people flocked to the site, in what has become a major aspect of the Passover holiday in Jerusalem.
The mass blessing by the kohanim, who are the descendants of Aaron, the first High Priest, takes place twice a year, on Sukkot and Passover. The priestly benediction is found in Chapter 6 of the book of Numbers, where God instructs Moses to tell Aaron and his sons how to bless the Israelites.The priestly blessing is said daily during the year as part of the morning prayer service, and twice during Sabbath and holiday morning prayer services. Before saying the blessing, men from the tribe of Levi wash the hands of the kohanim.

Will Nuclear Deterrent Keep North Korea EMP Threat At Bay?
APRIL 17, 2017
WND has been reporting on the threat to America from EMP, the electromagnetic pulse from a nuclear explosion high in the sky, since early in the 2000s when former CIA chief James Wooley, former Defense Department staffer F. Michael Maloof and former Congressional EMP Commission member Dr. Peter Vincent Pry were sounding the alarm. It was only weeks later that North Korea as a possible aggressor was brought into the conversation.
Nothing has gotten better since then, according to Pry, who agreed to an interview with WND on Friday, and in fact, it’s worse. In fact, the sabre-rattling from North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un in recent days and weeks, the threats to destroy America, the warnings about “nuclear thunderbolts,” and more, should be taken very seriously, he suggested.

South Korea and US Hold Joint Military Exercise
APRIL 17, 2017
Around 1,000 U.S. airmen and fighter jets have teamed up with South Korea’s Air Force in a joint combat training to ensure their readiness against North Korea’s provocations, the Pacific Command (PACOM) announced Monday. The two-week Max Thunder exercise, one of the largest military flying exercises held annually in South Korea, is scheduled to run though April 28 at Kunsan Air Base in the southwest of the peninsula. It involves various types of American aircraft,
including F-16s from the 7th Air Force, AV-8Bs from the 12th Marine Aircraft Group and EA-18Gs from the Electronic Attack Squadron 132, all of which are based in South Korea and Japan, according to PACOM. South Korea has dispatched roughly 500 personnel in support of the F-15K, F-16, F-5E and F-4E fighters, as well as other Air Force planes in operation.

Defected General claims Assad obtains hundreds of tons of chemical weapons
APRIL 17, 2017
Syrian President Bashar Assad still possesses hundreds of tons of chemical agents which he hid from the international community, a former Syrian general who specialized in chemical warfare told the Telegraph Friday. Brig. Gen. Zaher al-Sakat, who defected from Assad’s forces in 2013 and currently resides in an undisclosed European country, told the newspaper the Syrian leader had deceived United Nations inspectors sent into the country to destroy his chemical stockpiles.
Assad had agreed to turn in his entire chemical weapons inventory in 2013 when the US threatened military action after hundreds were killed in a deadly chemical attack on opposition-held suburbs of Damascus. But Sakat, who was head of chemical warfare in the Syrian army’s Fifth Division, has long claimed that Assad secretly held on to much of his stash. And after an April 4 suspected chemical attack killed at least 87 people, the defector has said the regime still has hundreds of tons of chemicals at hand.

U.S. Army exploring ‘devastating’ new weapon
APRIL 17, 2017
Were the United States to go to war with Russia, both sides could draw on deadly weapons that the world has never seen on a battlefield. On the Russian side, there are new and smaller tactical nuclear weapons. To counter them, the U.S. Army is taking another look at a “devastating” weapon, one first tested by the Air Force and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 2013, the Kinetic Energy Projectile, or KEP, a tungsten-based charge moving at three times the speed of sound that can destroy anything in its path.
“Think of it as a big shotgun shell,” Maj. Gen. William Hix, the Army’s director of strategy, plans & policy, said a few weeks ago at the Booz Allen Hamilton Direct Energy Summit. But unlike a shotgun shell, Hix said, the KEP moves at incredible speeds of “Mach 3 to Mach 6.” Randy Simpson, a weapons programs manager at Lawrence Livermore National Lab, explains that kinetic energy projectiles are warheads that “take advantage of high terminal speeds to deliver much more energy onto a target than the chemical explosives they carry would deliver alone.”

Mysterious fish kill in Tennessee lake raises neighborhoods concern
APRIL 17, 2017
A mysterious fish kill in one community lake is raising questions and leaving many residents concerned. Hundreds of dead fish swamped the shores of one neighborhood lake, a stench that could be smelled blocks away. “They were all dying, there was just hundreds of them lying around,” said Linda Watts, who lives by the lake. But the smell is just one cause of concern.
Watts has lived in the Seven Oaks neighborhood next to the lake for nearly ten years, and said this is a problem she has never had to deal with. “If there is something in the water, it is going to get into our drinking water? We don’t know,” she said. The water behind is filled with dead fish of all different sizes like catfish, carp and trout.

At Least 40 Dead After Deadly Flooding In Iran
APRIL 17, 2017
At least 40 people were killed and at least 5 are missing as torrential rains caused intense flooding and landslides in northwestern Iran, according to MEHR news agency. Footage posted on social media shows the apocalyptic aftermath of the floods. The ground was apparently washed out under a road in the area, causing its collapse. Slabs of asphalt are seen crumbling into mud and water on the video.
A man and woman are seen trapped on the roof of a truck as they are swept downstream, with several other cars stuck in the mud. Fortunately, the truck with the couple washed ashore, where they were helped to safety.

Army of self-charging robots sort 200,000 packages a Day in a Chinese warehouse
APRIL 17, 2017
This army of tiny orange robots which can sort up to 200,000 packages every DAY in a Chinese warehouse are providing an alarming glimpse of what the future could hold in factories around the world. These miniature machines, each just 7.5 inches, follow a set route and transport parcels from the assembly line to the departure gates where they are then dispatched.
In the STO Express building in Liny, Shandong Province, the 300 robots can get through 20,000 parcels every hour. The self-charging workers have saved the company, which has 300,000 employees, a staggering 70 per cent of manpower. They began operating in November last year at two of the company’s warehouses. The robots can identify the destination of a parcel through a code scan – practically eliminating mistakes.

Unrest Breaks Out Resulting In 13 Arrested at Pro-Trump / Anti-Trump Demonstrations
APRIL 16, 2017
Police say 13 people have been arrested as pro and anti-Trump demonstrators clashed in Berkeley Saturday. Two simultaneous demonstrations were planned for Civic Center Park. The demonstration has since taken over Center Street and Allston Way between Milvia Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way. The downtown Berkeley BART station has also closed as a result.
Police say a large number of fights have occurred and numerous fireworks have been thrown in the crowds. There have also been numerous reports of pepper spray being used in the crowd. Photos from the scene Saturday morning showed police dressed in riot gear. In anticipation of the event, police had already informed demonstrators about a long list of items that were banned from the event, such as metal pipes, baseball bats, poles and bricks.

APRIL 15, 2017
Police are searching for the person responsible for dumping copies of the Quran in campus toilets at the University of Texas at Dallas. A student found two copies of the Islamic religious text in the men’s restroom at the campus’ student union and reported the incident immediately to campus police.

The books were believed to be deposited in the toilet around 6 -7 pm. Police have been reviewing security footage to identify the person responsible. UT Dallas junior and president of the campus’ Muslim Student Association, Mohammad Syed, says he’s shocked by the story. He’s known the campus to be a welcoming environment and has nothing but good things to say about it.

Australian Christians Warned Not to Wear Christian Symbols in Sydney or Risk Being Attacked.
APRIL 15, 2017
Australian Christians have been warned not to wear overtly Christian symbols through Muslim areas in Sydney or risk being attacked. Last week, a 30-year-old Greek Orthodox Christian had a crucifix ripped from his neck and stomped on by four men described as “Middle Eastern in appearance.” He says they punched him and kicked him in his face, back and shoulders, injuries corroborated by a doctor’s examination.

When his girlfriend tried to defend him, two Arabic-speaking women also allegedly hit and kicked her. According to the Daily Telegraph, the men also profaned the name of Jesus and referred to “Allah.” The victim claims at least five uniformed railway transport officers watched the attack and did nothing to help him. Baptist Pastor George Capsis says it’s the fourth such attack on a Christian in Sydney in the past 6 months.

Top Candy Makers Scrub ‘Easter’ From Packaging
APRIL 15, 2017
Grocery store aisles are lined with chocolate candy bunnies, jelly beans, and marshmallow Peeps, but one thing is missing–the word “Easter.” Hershey’s, M&M’s, Lindor, Russell Stover, Dove, Rolo, and Twix have all produced Easter themed candy without mentioning the word on the front of their candy, according to a press release from the Liberty Counsel. “Just as companies were trying to profit from Christmas while ignoring the reason for the celebration, now
companies are targeting the Christian aspects of Easter and removing them,” Mat Staver, Founder, and Chairman of Liberty Counsel said. Earlier this month, Cadbury dropped the word “Easter” from the advertising of its annual “Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt” in England. As CBN News reported, the new “Cadbury’s Great British Egg Hunt” caused an uproar in the church and the government.

Was Herod’s Palace Discovered? – Site of Jesus’ Sentencing
APRIL 15, 2017
These are busy days in Jerusalem, as the city marks both Pesach (Passover) and Holy Week, leading up to Easter. Inside the Old City walls, discoveries at Herod’s Palace have caught the attention of Jewish and Christian scholars. More than 2,000 years of history are recorded in one building, where Pontius Pilate may have sentenced Jesus.At the western edge of the Old City, near the Jaffa Gate, the Tower of David stands above the walls.

In 1999, archaeologists found a building while working on the Tower of David Museum. It turned out to be the site of King Herod’s Palace. Records on its walls go back to the First Temple period, even before the time of Jesus and the Roman governor who sentenced him to the cross: Pontius Pilate.

Houston City Council Bans Homeless Encampments on Public Property and Panhandling
APRIL 15, 2017
City council members in Houston, Texas have passed an ordinance that bans homeless people from erecting temporary shelters and tents on public property or panhandling on the public streets. The new rules also ban the homeless from blocking sidewalks or entryways to buildings. According to reports, ordinance was presented after area residents complained about aggressive panhandling and other activity on the street, which they found to be a public safety hazard.

Some also opined that the encampments detract from the desired image of the city. “I am pleased that we are addressing this important public safety issue in our city,” council member Mike Knox remarked. “Panhandling in streets is dangerous to both panhandlers and motorists.” The city says that it would prefer to see the homeless be housed in area shelters, and has been in communication with area non-profit organizations such as the Salvation Army and Star to Hope to determine if there are sufficient beds to meet the need.

Drop of your blood may predict how long you’ll live
APRIL 15, 2017
Blood has many roles in the metaphorical life of the human body. It’s the organ of kinship (“blood ties”), the seat of emotion (“blood lust”) and a vehicle for identity (“travel is in his blood”). But might it also be a window on the body’s fate? Many scientists are trying to answer that question as a practical matter, not a metaphor. They are scouring the blood for biomarkers — easily measured substances that illuminate what’s going on in hard-to-reach places.

Biomarkers aren’t new to medicine. Many lab tests are, in fact, tests of biomarkers. Sugar or protein in a sample of urine can shed light on what’s happening in the kidneys or pancreas. The concentration of cholesterol in the blood may hint at disease in the arteries. What’s changed is medicine’s ability to measure more molecules, with greater precision and less cost, than was possible in the past.

World’s oldest person dies at 117… Last known survivor of 19th century…
APRIL 15, 2017
Emma Morano, an Italian woman believed to have been the oldest person alive and the last survivor of the 19th century, died Saturday at the age of 117, Italian media reported. Morano, born on November 29 1899, died at her home in Verbania, in northern Italy, the reports said. “She had an extraordinary life, and we will always remember her strength to move forward in life,” the mayor of Verbania was quoted as saying.

According to the US-based Gerontology Research Group (GRG), Morano ceded the crown of the world’s oldest human being to Jamaican Violet Brown, who was born on March 10, 1900.Morano’s death means there is no one living known to have been born before 1900. Her first love died in World War I, but she married later and left her violent husband just before the Second World War and shortly after the death in infancy of her only son.

Iran’s Ahmadinejad Fears No Threat from US – Says Iran Cannot Be Harmed
APRIL 15, 2017
Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday he does not view recent U.S. missile strikes on ally Syria as a message for Iran, which he called a “powerful country” that the U.S. cannot harm. The controversial former president made the remarks to The Associated Press on Saturday in his office in northern Tehran, three days after he stunned Iranians by registering to run for president again.
His surprise candidacy must still be approved by authorities but has already upended a race that was widely expected to be won by incumbent moderate Hassan Rouhani. Ahmadinejad dismissed suggestions that the U.S. strike on Syria might also be a warning for his country. “I do not think it has a message for Iran. Iran is a powerful country and people like Mr. Trump or the United States administration cannot hurt Iran,” he said.

This 9-Year-Old Boy’s Vision Will Send Chills Up Your Spine!
APRIL 15, 2017
Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Did God give a 9-year-old boy a vision of the future of America? Last night, 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, READ MORE http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/9-year-old-boy-has-a-vision-of-an-asteroid-hitting-the-atlantic-and-a-nuclear-war-involving-the-united-states

North Carolina Lawmakers Seek to Ban Gay Marriage
APRIL 15, 2017
Three Republican lawmakers in North Carolina are now looking to ban same-sex marriage in the state with a bill called the “Uphold Historical Marriage Act,” which critics say is already “dead on arrival.” The bill, House Bill 780, sponsored by Reps. Larry Pittman, Michael Speciale and Carl Ford argues that the U.S. Supreme Court overstepped its “constitutional bounds” in 2015 when it struck down what was known as Amendment One. “HB 780 is about the need for the states to reassert their rights. As the bill states, marriage is not a federal matter.

For too long, the federal government and federal courts have been allowed to overstep their bounds because the states have not had the courage to say no. Upholding the U.S. and North Carolina constitutions means demanding that laws and court rulings do not contradict the very constitutions we are obligated to uphold. I appreciate Rep. Speciale and Rep. Ford for having the courage to stand with me and say so,” Pittman said in a statement cited by WSOC-TV.

Leaked NSA Malware Threatens Windows Users Around The Globe

APRIL 15, 2017
The ShadowBrokers, an entity previously confirmed by The Intercept to have leaked authentic malware used by the NSA to attack computers around the world, today released another cache of what appears to be extremely potent (and previously unknown) software capable of breaking into systems running Windows. The software could give nearly anyone with sufficient technical knowledge the ability to wreak havoc on millions of Microsoft users.

The leak includes a litany of typically codenamed software “implants” with names like ODDJOB, ZIPPYBEER, and ESTEEMAUDIT, capable of breaking into — and in some cases seizing control of — computers running version of the Windows operating system earlier than the most recent Windows 10. The vulnerable Windows versions ran more than 65 percent of desktop computers surfing the web last month, according to estimates from the tracking firm Net Market Share.

Largest Mumps Outbreak in 22 Years Strikes Texas
APRIL 14, 2017
The Texas Department of State Health Services warned this week of multiple ongoing mumps outbreaks. The surge, which includes 221 cases this year, constitutes the highest incidence of mumps in the state in 22 years. Mumps is a contagious disease caused by a virus that spreads from person to person through saliva and mucus.

“What we’ve seen — as in other parts of the country, (it’s) really just the same thing — a pretty big resurgence in mumps cases over the last six or eight months,” said Chris Van Deusen, spokesman for the state’s health services department. In 2016, Texas experienced 192 mumps cases, he said, primarily in the last few months of the year.

Apple Secures Permit to Test Self-Driving Vehicles in California
APRIL 14, 2017
Apple Inc.’s secretive self-driving car project is on course for a public debut. The technology giant on Friday secured a permit for autonomous-vehicle testing in California, the clearest sign to date of progress in Apple’s efforts to develop self-driving car technology. The permit, awarded by California’s Department of Motor Vehicles, is Apple’s first for

autonomous cars and allows it to test drive vehicles on public roads in the largest U.S. state by population, adding it to a list of rivals that includes Google parent Alphabet Inc. GOOGL -0.15% and Tesla Inc. TSLA 2.41% The move indicates Apple is going beyond testing on private tracks and in simulators as it works to improve artificial-intelligence systems that must learn to interact in the unpredictable world of human drivers.

Pentagon Preparing to Protect Electric Grid from Massive Attack
APRIL 14, 2017
Amid warnings that North Korea and Iran have plans to take out parts of the U.S. electric grid through a cyber attack or atmospheric nuclear blast, the Pentagon is taking steps to both protect the nation’s communications and power lifeline. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has charged BAE Systems to map a system that can detect a cyber attack and gin up an alternative communications network

for military and civilian use if the grid is fried, according to Defense Systems, the online newsletter. Former CIA Director James Woolsey has been warning for years that the grid is extremely vulnerable, and recently the Pentagon and some states have taken the warning seriously. Woolsey and former EMP Commission chief of staff Peter Vincent Pry have pointed a finger at North Korea, which is now threatening the U.S.

Louisiana Church Offering Drive-Thru Good Friday Prayers
APRIL 14, 2017
A congregation in Louisiana is going to offer drive-thru prayers for commuters as part of the holy day of Good Friday. For the third year in a row, Louisiana Avenue United Methodist Church of Lafayette will pray over commuters who drive to their property this Friday. Louisiana Avenue UMC Senior Pastor Robert E. Johnson, Sr. told The Christian Post that the goal of the drive-thru prayers is to reach the unchurched.

“We started offering drive thru prayers because there is a low percent of people who go to church in the Lafayette area. Our church is located next to a busy highway,” explained Johnson. “So having people and their entire families come to drive-thru for prayers will give us an opportunity to introduce Christ to someone.” More than 100 drivers showed up last year, Johnson explained, and the goal is to have that number doubled via increased promotion of the event.

Muslim Professor Resigns after Christian Student Stands Up for His Faith
APRIL 14, 2017
The Muslim professor at the center of a controversy with a Christian student at Rollins College in Florida has resigned her post, the school’s president says. Areeje Zufari, a humanities professor, resigned after a controversy that involved a conflict with a Christian student who says he was suspended and faced a disciplinary hearing for challenging the professor’s anti-Christian statements in the classroom.

The school is breaking its silence for the first time, claiming that the student, Marshall Polston, was suspended after allegations that he made “vulgar” and “mean-spirited” posts on Facebook to another student. Kenneth Lewis, Polston’s attorney, told The Orlando Sentinel that Polson was suspended because he publicly challenged Zufari’s statements in the classroom and that the Facebook post was “nothing” and “a total joke.”

Muslim Parents ‘Turning to Christ’ Through Children Who’ve Embraced Christianity
APRIL 14, 2017
Muslim families displaced by the Islamic State terror group are reportedly turning to Jesus Christ, following in the footsteps of hundreds of children who’ve embraced Christianity through educational programs. The Gospel Herald reported on Tuesday the testimony of a ministry director working in northern Iraq with Christian Aid Mission, an organization that helps ministry partners provide relief and spread the faith, describing how 600 children have attended one of the programs.

The children have received Bibles and heard the Gospel, allowing them to then go on and share the love of Christ with their parents.”That night, we asked the kids to go tell their parents about what they had heard and share the story of Jesus with everyone,” the director said. “Mahmood’s father came the next day complaining to us about our influence in his kid’s decision to accept Christ,” he said of one 10-year-old boy’s father.

Marvel under fire for comic book’s hidden Islamist, anti-Semitic messages
APRIL 14, 2017
Marvel Comics plans to take “disciplinary action” against an artist who slipped political propaganda into a comic book. The comic book giant has been under fire since it was revealed that Indonesian artist Ardian Syaf used Islamist and anti-Semitic verses in the series released on Wednesday, “X-Men Gold #1.” Fans started to point out the hidden messages on social media, prompting Marvel to announce Saturday that it would pull some of the images, according to Time. “The

mentioned artwork in X-Men Gold No. 1 was inserted without knowledge behind its reported meanings,” Marvel Comics said in a statement to comicbook.com.“These implied references do not reflect the views of the writer, editors or anyone else at Marvel and are in direct opposition of the inclusiveness of Marvel Comics and what the X-Men have stood for since their creation. This artwork will be removed from subsequent printings, digital versions, and trade paperbacks and disciplinary action is being taken.”

Homeless man robs NYC churches to ‘get back at God’…
APRIL 14, 2017
A Queens burglary suspect, motivated by his hatred of the Almighty, robbed four houses of worship in three weeks — including one that was hit three separate times, officials said Wednesday. “I’m mad at God,” Joseph Woznik, 23, told investigators, according to cops. “I don’t like church no more. I don’t want to deal with religion. I’m sick and tired of hearing about religion. “I don’t break into houses, only churches.

I break in to get back at God.” The homeless man was arrested Tuesday on hate crime charges for the multi-faith crime spree, officials said. Woznik’s one-man religious rampage struck an Episcopal church, a Romanian Orthodox church, a Hindu temple and a Roman Catholic church, officials said. Woznik faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. Cops said the suspect, who was caught on two video cameras during the burglaries, confessed to the crimes.

Extreme religious acts mark Good Friday in Philippines…
APRIL 14, 2017
Whipping their backs to a bloody state and nailing themselves to crosses, devotees in the fervently Catholic Philippines marked Good Friday with extreme acts of faith that have become tourist attractions. In towns north of Manila at least five people were nailed to crosses, while in an island to the south hundreds of residents dressed up as Roman centurions as part of decades-old traditions in the Southeast Asian nation.

These customs flourish, although they are not officially endorsed by church leadership. In the island of Marinduque, about 150 kilometres (100 miles) south of the capital, residents in centurion outfits and heavy wooden masks, played at hunting down a renegade Roman soldier called St. Longinus.

Could North Korean Agents Release Biological Weapons In Major U.S. Cities
APRIL 14, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) Most Americans have no idea that biological weapons could potentially bring our nation to a complete and utter standstill within a matter of days. In recent articles I have been trying to get people to understand why it would be so exceedingly dangerous for the United States to attack North Korea. If the North Koreans used weapons of mass destruction, we could easily be facing a situation in which millions of North Korean and Japanese citizens end up dead.

But since it would happen on the other side of the planet, such a scenario doesn’t seem to emotionally move a lot of people. So today, I want to try to get people to understand the immense devastation that just a handful of North Korean agents could cause inside our own country. A war with North Korea would be fundamentally different from other wars, because there would be no line that the North Koreans would not be willing to cross. They would use nukes, they would use chemical weapons, and they would not hesitate to even use biological weapons on innocent civilian populations.

RUMORS OF WAR: Could Australia Be Pulled Into Confrontation with China?
APRIL 14, 2017
Wars can happen suddenly in an atmosphere of mistrust and provocation, especially if a minor power, like Australia, abandons its independence for an “alliance” with an unstable superpower. The United States is at a critical moment. Having exported its all-powerful manufacturing base, run down its industry and reduced millions of its once-hopeful people to poverty, the principal American power today is brute force. When Donald Trump launched his missile attack on Syria – following his bombing of a mosque and a school –
he was having dinner in Florida with the President of China, Xi Jinping. Trump’s attack on Syria had little to do with chemical weapons. It was, above all, to show his detractors and doubters in Washington’s war-making institutions – the Pentagon, the CIA, the Congress – how tough he was and prepared to risk a war with Russia. He had spilled blood in Syria, a Russian protectorate; he was surely now on the team. The attack was also meant to say directly to President Xi, his dinner guest: this is how we deal with those who challenge the top dog.

Christian teacher in Germany banned from wearing cross necklace
APRIL 14, 2017
School management has forced a teacher in Berlin, Germany, to remove a cross necklace from her attire when she’s in the classroom. School administrators in the capital city enforced a neutrality law that bans teachers and civil servants from wearing religious symbols and clothing in public. “The neutrality law has generally applied to Muslim women who wear a hijab, or headscarf,” reported The Local, an English-language publication in Germany.
Across Europe, controversial Muslim headscarf bans have sparked debate on this issue.”To be banned are visible symbols of a religious affiliation,” Yale University noted about the situation in Berlin. “Pieces of jewelry, however, such as a cross on a chain, are allowed. City-run kindergartens, adult education institutions and vocational schools will also be exempted from the ruling. Religious education in public schools will also not be affected.”

3,000 Year Old Manure in Israel Offers Clues on Bible’s King Solomon Mystery
APRIL 14, 2017
The discovery of 3,000-year-old manure in Israel’s Timna Valley could provide clues about the biblical King Solomon and his 10 century B.C. quest to build the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, archaeologists have said. The History Channel reported on Monday that archaeologists from the University of Tel Aviv began excavating the site of a mining camp in 2013, and in 2014 made several important discoveries, such as the remains of walled structures and fortified gates.
The team also found animal manure, and although at first they did not realize the significance of it, radiocarbon dating results revealed that the dung came from donkeys and other livestock in the 10th century B.C. As National Geographic reports, what is remarkable about the find is that the manure suggests significant activity was taking place at the site at a time when King Solomon is believed to have been building the Holy Temple.

China Flexes It’s Muscle Amid Growing Military Tensions
APRIL 14, 2017
China has flexed its military muscle on state television as tensions escalate between the US and North Korea. China Central Television (CCTV) yesterday revealed footage of the country’s various missiles in a daily military programme. According to media, one of the weapons featured in the programme was DF-21 missile. The anti-ship ballistic missile boasts a firing distance of up to 1,926 miles (3,100km) and has been dubbed ‘the killer of aircraft carrier’.
The programme, Military Reports, was broadcast by CCTV 7, a channel dedicated to showing military and agricultural content. The 30-minute show contained several reports, and the missiles appeared in the first two reports. In the first report, the state-controlled station aired footage from a series of mock battles carried out by People’s Liberation Army recently. The exact location of the battles was not revealed, but it was reported to be deep in the Tianshan Mountains in western China.

North Korea May Attempt Nuclear Detonation to Mark Sinister ‘Day of the Sun’
APRIL 14, 2017
New satellite images have emerged purportedly showing how North Korea is preparing to detonate a nuclear bomb to coincide with its ‘Day of the Sun’ national day on Saturday. Aerial photos taken yesterday show continued activity at the Punggye-ri Nuclear site where US officials fear a nuclear device has been installed in a tunnel ahead of another test. It comes as the regime today warned foreign journalists to prepare for a ‘big event’ on Thursday and as tensions remained high after President Donald Trump sent a
US Navy strike group steaming toward the Korean Peninsula. North Korea’s most important national day is on Saturday April 15 when North Korea commemorates the birth anniversary of its founding president Kim Il Sung. However, the big event may have been the grand unveiling of a sprawling housing project in Pyongyang. Ahead of the event, Kim Jong-un yesterday oversaw a commando operation in which special forces dropped from light transport planes ‘like hail’ and ‘mercilessly blew up enemy targets’.

RUMORS OF WAR: U.S. May Launch Strike If North Korea Reaches For Nuclear Trigger
APRIL 14, 2017
The U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test, multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News. North Korea has warned that a “big event” is near, and U.S. officials say signs point to a nuclear test that could come as early as this weekend.
The intelligence officials told NBC News that the U.S. has positioned two destroyers capable of shooting Tomahawk cruise missiles in the region, one just 300 miles from the North Korean nuclear test site. American heavy bombers are also positioned in Guam to attack North Korea should it be necessary, and earlier this week, the Pentagon announced that the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group was being diverted to the area.

British intelligence passed Trump associates’ communications with Russians on to US counterparts
APRIL 13, 2017
British and other European intelligence agencies intercepted communications between associates of Donald Trump and Russian officials and other Russian individuals during the campaign and passed on those communications to their US counterparts, US congressional and law enforcement and US and European intelligence sources tell CNN.
The communications were captured during routine surveillance of Russian officials and other Russians known to western intelligence. British and European intelligence agencies, including GCHQ, the British intelligence agency responsible for communications surveillance, were not proactively targeting members of the Trump team but rather picked up these communications during what’s known as “incidental collection,” these sources tell CNN.

President Trump Just Empowered the States to Defund Planned Parenthood
APRIL 13, 2017
(Reported By Jessilyn Justice) President Donald Trump just moved Planned Parenthood funding to the state level, in essence defunding the abortion giant at the federal level. The bill allows states to withhold federal money from Planned Parenthood. PBS reports Trump, signed the measure in private and reversed the Obama administration’s regulation that required state and local governments to distribute federal dollars for family planning services—
including contraception, sexually transmitted diseases, fertility, pregnancy care, and breast and cervical cancer screening—to qualified health providers, irrespective of whether the providers also performed abortions, PBS reports. Planned Parenthood clinics received $20.5 million of the $252.6 million distributed under the so-called Title X Family Planning grant program in the 2014 fiscal year, according to Health and Human Services Department figures.

More than quarter of UK’s birds at risk of extinction
APRIL 13, 2017
More than a quarter of the UK’s birds are struggling to survive, with species including curlews and puffins now joining the at-risk list, according to a new report. Entries to the UK’s ‘red list’ of endangered birds – those in urgent need of conservation – have swelled to 67 species out of a possible 247. Since the last review in 2009, 15 new species have been added to the list,
which is reserved for species in danger of extinction or that have seen a sharp drop in population or habitat in recent years. The report comes from the RSPB, British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) and Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT), together with UK government conservation agencies. The curlew, Europe’s largest and most distinctive wading bird, is among those added to the red list, with numbers falling 64 percent from 1970 to 2014.

HATED BY ALL MEN – Christians Now Being Harassed In 128 Nations
APRIL 13, 2017
The number of countries in which Christians suffer from government restrictions and social hostilities grew from 108 to 128 in one year, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center. The study, which covered 2015, the most recent year for which statistics are available, also found harassment of religious believers of all kinds rose for the first time in three years.
Matthew 10:22 – And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
The lengthy report tied the rising level of persecution to the record number of refugees – almost all Muslim – entering Europe. The report documents governmental laws, policies and actions that restrict religious beliefs and practices as well as “acts of religious hostility by private individuals, organizations or groups in society.” Pew said that to “track these indicators of government restrictions and social hostilities, researchers combed through more than a dozen publicly available, READ MORE http://www.wnd.com/2017/04/pew-christians-harassed-in-128-nations/

FALSE FLAG? Assad Claims Chemical Attack Was ‘100 Percent Fabrication’
APRIL 13, 2017
Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has accused the US of fabricating last week’s chemical attack to justify a military strike, claiming the regime could not be responsible as it longer has chemical weapons. “Our impression is that the West, mainly the United States, is hand-in-glove with the terrorists,” Mr Assad said in his first since the bombing. “They fabricated the whole story in order to have a pretext for the attack.
“We don’t know whether those dead children were killed in Khan Sheikhoun. Were they dead at all?,” he told AFP news agency, The attack prompted US President Donald Trump to order the first major military action of his presidency, launching dozens of cruise missiles at the airfield from where the chemical attack was believed to have been launched.

China Warns US Against Striking North Korea
APRIL 13, 2017
China has warned the US against using military force against North Korea, after a surprise redeployment of an aircraft carrier group. Washington’s regional allies said they expect it to consult with them before any action. Tension is mounting in the region as US President Donald Trump said he would solve the “North Korean problem” with or without China’s help. The warning came amid the diversion of the aircraft carrier group ‘USS Carl Vinson’ to the Korean
Peninsula and a week after Trump ordered the US Navy to fire a barrage of 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase as punishment for an alleged chemical attack in Idlib province. Responding to US belligerence, Beijing called against using force against Pyongyang. “Military force cannot resolve the issue,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters in Beijing. “Amid challenge there is opportunity. Amid tensions we will also find a kind of opportunity to return to talks.” An editorial in the influential newspaper Global Times,

Keywords ‘World War 3’ Hits News Record As Fears Grow!
APRIL 13, 2017
As warships move off the coast of North Korea and cruise missile stay pointed at Syria, you might be forgiven for the odd macabre thought over the past week. And it seems you are not alone, as Google data reveals people have been obsessed with the idea of worldwide conflict in recent days. Searches for ‘World War 3’ hit their highest level since records started in 2004 this month, according to data brought to light by Infowars.
Searches for ‘war’ and ‘nuclear war’ are also at their highest level since the start of the year. Google users have also been looking for information on ‘Trump war’ and ‘Syria war’ in record-breaking numbers. The spikes came following Trump’s shock decision to launch cruise missiles against a Syrian regime airbase last week where Russian troops were stationed. Russia and Iran have since responded by saying the strike crossed a ‘red line’ adding that if there are any further attacks ‘we will respond with force’.

RUMORS OF WAR: What Happens If Kim Jong-Un Is Not Bluffing?
APRIL 13, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to “solve” the North Korean problem, and the North Koreans have repeatedly promised to use nuclear weapons in response to any attack by the U.S. military. So what happens if both sides are not bluffing? For eight years, Americans had become accustomed to Barack Obama making threats and never following through on them, so it surprised a lot of people when Trump actually backed up his words by striking Syria after publicly pledging to do so. Now Trump has publicly committed to take military action in North Korea,
and I am absolutely convinced that he is not bluffing. But if Kim Jong-Un is not bluffing either, and I don’t think that he is, that means that we are on the verge of what could be a horrifying military conflict with the North Koreans.The critical moment could actually be just hours away. Foreign journalists in North Korea have been instructed to be ready to witness a “big and important event” on Thursday, and many believe that this “event” could be the testing of a large nuclear device.

Japan warns North Korea may be capable of arming missiles with sarin
APRIL 13, 2017
North Korea may already have the capability to deliver missiles equipped with sarin nerve agent, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Thursday. His warning came as analysts said North Korea may be preparing for a sixth nuclear test ahead of a key anniversary in the country and following the deployment of a US naval strike group to the region.
“The security situation around our country is getting increasingly severe,” Abe said, who was addressing the Japanese parliament’s diplomacy and defense committee. “We have just talked about Syria. There is a possibility that North Korea already has a capability to put sarin on warheads to strike the ground,” he said. Abe did not provide any evidence why he felt North Korea had the capability to equip missiles with chemical weapons.

Satellite photos show North Korean nuclear site ‘primed and ready’
APRIL 13, 2017
North Korean monitoring service 38 North said Wednesday the country’s Punggye-ri nuclear site is “primed and ready” for a sixth nuclear test. “The activity during the past six weeks is suggestive of the final preparations for a test,” 38 North analyst Joseph Bermudez told CNN. Their prediction comes as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Thursday that North Korea may have the capability to deliver missiles equipped with sarin nerve gas.
He and other analysts pore over commercial satellite imagery of the testing site, looking for signs of activity similar to that prior to other tests.Bermudez and his colleague Jack Liu correctly predicted the last nuclear test, in September 2016. Since late February they have been warning of increased activity at the site, particularly new equipment arriving, activity at the command center, and excavation and water pumping from entrances to the underground testing site.

Scientists developing earthquake early warning system for entire West Coast
APRIL 13, 2017
It’s a link up that could lead to a more improved earthquake early warning system for the entire west coast. On Monday, seismic sensors at the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN) linked up with a network of sensors in California to form a unified Shake Alert system “The milestone that we are passing is an important one,” said Doug Given, Earthquake
Early Warning Coordinator for the U.S. Geological Survey. For years, seismologists with the PNSN have been working on a version of the Shake Alert system while fellow seismologists were doing the same in California. After some horse trading, the seismologists tweak their systems to use the same technology to merge the two systems together.

DEVELOPING: Mount Sinabung Volcano Unleashes Fresh Eruptions in Indonesia
APRIL 13, 2017
Mount Sinabung on Indonesia’s Sumatra island has spewed hot smoke and ash high into the air on Wednesday, in its latest violent eruptions. According to the local disaster agency, the volcano has erupted repeatedly in recent days, pumping hot gas clouds up to 3 km into the sky. Reports said clouds of smoke from the molten lava covered the sky above a school in North Sumatra province,
where children were playing outside in the yard. However, the authorities insisted that the school is safe as it is located outside a 7km restricted area around the volcano. Mount Sinabung is a highly active volcano on Sumatra Island. It has been erupting almost continuously since 2013. Despite it, the villagers continue their precarious existences in that area by putting on masks to go shopping as ash falls from the sky, and tending to their crops.

Successfully Preparing for Earth’s Final Hours
APRIL 12, 2017
(Dr. Dave Williams) The borders of the prophetic puzzle are now in place. Nearly every day other pieces are falling into their proper positions, signaling that the day of the Lord is rapidly approaching. Peter warned of those who would mock those who speak of Christ’s second coming: “Know this first, that there shall come scoffers in the last days who walk after their own lusts” (2 Pet. 3:3). I find many of these scoffers, unfortunately, in the professing church.
Defend Against Deception
Corrupt theology today travels at lightning speed because of the internet. It then quickly makes its way into our pulpits, seminaries, and schools. Again, it was Jesus who said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven” (Matt. 7:21). The nature of deception is you think you’re right when you’re wrong.
Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matt. 7:15). The good news is this: when we stay connected to Jesus Christ, His Spirit, and His Word, we will develop supernatural discernment and find true hope in these last days (Ps. 119:49; Col. 1:5; Heb. 5:14).

Ahmadinejad set to run for Iran presidency!
APRIL 12, 2017
The former president of Iran who once admitted that he was trying help usher in the arrival of the Muslim Mahdi in Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has filed paperwork to run for the office for a third time in the May 19 election. The move comes in defiance of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who advised him against it. The former hardline president is one of 126 people who registered Interior Ministry on Wednesday for the upcoming election, according to the IRNA news agency.
Registration is open for five days, and more candidates, including incumbent President Hassan Rouhani, are expected to join. The list will be screened by the Guardian Council, a religious body that acts to prevent people of questionable morals or insufficient qualifications from running for secular office. The final election ballot will be announced on April 26-27, and campaigning will officially begin on April 28.

Swearing ‘Pastor’ Embraces Open Abominations, ‘Doesn’t Care’ What Bible Says
APRIL 12, 2017
A profanity-laced preacher who has lost hundreds in his congregation over his decision to allow open homosexuals to serve in leadership positions, and who says he “doesn’t care” what the Bible has to say on the issue, is featured in a new online video that has received over a million views in less than a week. Ryan Meeks is the founder of EastLake Community Church in Bothell, Washington, which identifies itself as “an inclusive Christian community where faith is less about a story to be believed as it is a life to be lived.” In 2015,
Meeks announced that he believed a “move of the Spirit” caused him to rethink how he had handled the issue of homosexuality. In the April 8th video released by Upworthy, Meeks—amid clips of profanity usage—noted that he used to shy away from the topic. “When it came to the conversation around the LGBT community and church policy, or what does the Bible say about homosexuality, I always felt awkward about it. I didn’t want to bring it up,” he explained.

Russia Vetoes UNSC Syria Condemnation
APRIL 12, 2017
Moscow has vetoed a US-backed resolution condemning the Khan Shaykun incident on April 4 as a chemical attack while demanding that Syria open up its military bases to inspections. Russia, which has veto power as one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, was joined by Bolivia in voting down the resolution. China, Ethiopia and Kazakhstan abstained. Ten states, including the US, the UK and France – the Troika that put together the text of the resolution – voted
in favor “The main objection to the resolution is that it apportioned blame prior to an objective outside investigation of the incident… The outcome of the vote was predestined, because we disagreed categorically with a document that was fundamentally misconceived,” said Vladimir Safronkov, Russia’s deputy envoy at the Security Council, who also accused other states and international organizations of making “no effort” to inspect the site of the alleged attack.

On April 9, 2017, a dark solar filament exploded hurling a powerful CME into space. At first it appeared that the CME would miss Earth, but a new analysis by NOAA forecasters suggests that a glancing glow is possible on April 15th. G1-class geomagnetic storms are possible when the CME arrives this weekend. The above video of the eruption was recorded by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

A Prayer for Urgency and Militant Focus
APRIL 12, 2017
(By Cameron King) Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand—a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, such as never was in ancient times nor ever will be in ages to come. Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste—nothing escapes them. They have the appearance of horses; they gallop along like cavalry. With a noise like that of chariots they leap over the mountaintops, like a crackling fire consuming stubble, like a mighty army drawn up for battle. At the sight of them, nations are in anguish; every face turns pale.
They charge like warriors; they scale walls like soldiers. They all march in line, not swerving from their course. They do not jostle each other; each marches straight ahead. They plunge through defenses without breaking ranks. They rush upon the city; they run along the wall. They climb into the houses; like thieves they enter through the windows. Before them the earth shakes, the heavens tremble, the sun and moon are darkened, and the stars no longer shine. The Lord thunders at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number, and mighty is the army that obeys his command. The day of the Lord is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it?

Eyewitness Testimony That’ll Make You Never Doubt the Resurrection Again
APRIL 12, 2017
Christianity’s core belief is that the Son of God took on human form, died for our sins and then rose from the dead to give us eternal life. But if Jesus Christ didn’t come back to life, it undoes His claim to be the all-powerful, eternal Son of God, Savior and Messiah. So, Christianity hangs on the Resurrection. To believe the events around that first Easter, you pretty much have to believe that Jesus did indeed exist and that the
New Testament can be trusted. At the Impact 360 school in Pine Mountain, Georgia, Prof. Jonathan Morrow preps college-bound Christians in how to fight with the facts of their faith.He told CBN News, “Investigating the Resurrection is a historical question that you can do with eyes wide open; it’s not a blind faith kind of thing, like believing in the Easter Bunny or a lucky rabbit’s foot. This is real world kind of stuff. And you can investigate the data for it.”

These 2 States Are Launching Biblical Pushback on Gay Marriage
APRIL 12, 2017
Lawmakers in two states are working to pass bills that push back against the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. In Texas, lawmakers are weighing a bill that would allow county judges to recuse themselves from issuing same-sex marriage licenses if they have personal religious objections. The bill is expected to head soon to the Texas House after winning preliminary approval in the Senate 21-10.
“If we don’t do this, we are discriminating against people of faith,” said Republican state Sen. Brian Birdwell who sponsored the bill. The move comes nearly two years after the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2015 decision legalizing gay marriage, but that’s because the Texas Legislature only meets every two years.

Sweden Proposing Ban on Cars to avert Terrorism!
APRIL 12, 2017
Cars and other vehicles “have turned into deadly weapons”, and should be banished from cities to stop attacks like the one in Stockholm from happening in future, according to Aftonbladet editorialist Eva Franchell. Crackdowns on immigration or extremist ideology are not the way forward when it comes to terror prevention, according to the veteran journalist, writing after Friday’s terror attack in Stockholm left four people dead.
Instead, it is cars — which she calls “effective murder machines” — that Franchell says “must simply be removed from city centres and places where people gather, if people are to be protected in future”. Vehicles are “easy to steal, and so nothing has been able to stop their advance”, writes Ms. Franchell. “It just isn’t reasonable that a big truck can be driven right into one of Stockholm’s busiest streets on a Friday afternoon right before Easter.”

Cromwell High School freshman Andraya Yearwood finally ran the race she had been dreaming of running, and not because she had a personal best time. Andraya is a transgender woman who was running for the girls’ track team on Wednesday, racing other female athletes from Portland and Old Saybrook. After telling her father, Rahsaan Yearwood, and

mother, Ngozi Nnaji, in middle school that she identified as a female, Andraya, 15, was getting the chance she wanted. With family, friends and teammates cheering her on at her first high school track meet, Andraya won the girls 100- and 200-meter dashes, and helped her 4×100-meter relay team take second place. She ran 11.99 seconds in the 100 and 26.34 in the 200. “I do hope I inspire people, but not only with track,” Andraya said Wednesday.

North Carolina Church to Host Stadium-Wide Easter Egg Hunt With 20,000 Eggs
APRIL 12, 2017
A church in North Carolina is going to celebrate Easter with a stadium-wide Easter egg hunt that will have approximately 20,000 Easter eggs. Element Church, a Forest City-based non-denominational congregation with additional campuses in Shelby and Morganton, will be holding its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday morning at McNair Stadium. Richard Hayden, teaching pastor at Element Church,
told The Christian Post that they’re expecting between 2,000 and 2,500 attendees. “We will be dropping the same amount of eggs this year as previous years. They are dropped from a helicopter,” said Hayden. Hayden also told CP that this will not be a secular occasion, for before the dropping of the eggs begins they will “have a time of worship and a presentation of the Gospel.” READ MORE http://www.christianpost.com/news/north-carolina-church-to-host-stadium-wide-easter-egg-hunt-with-20000-eggs-179710/

Puerto Rico seen sliding toward bankruptcy as deadline nears…
APRIL 12, 2017
Bankruptcy for Puerto Rico is looking ever more likely as the clock ticks down toward a May 1 deadline to restructure $70 billion in debt, ramping up uncertainty for anyone betting on returns from the island’s widely held U.S. municipal bonds. When U.S. Congress last year passed the Puerto Rico rescue law dubbed PROMESA, it froze creditor lawsuits against the island so its federally appointed oversight board and creditors could negotiate out of court on the biggest debt
restructuring in U.S. municipal history. The freeze expires on May 1, however, and an extension by Congress is “not going to happen,” said a Republican aide to the House Committee on Natural Resources, which is in charge of territory matters. A round of mediated talks is scheduled to begin on Thursday.

FALLING AWAY: Record Numbers Abandon Sweden Church Because ‘They Do Not Believe in God’
APRIL 12, 2017
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Sweden says people are continuing to abandon the faith in record numbers. More than 90,000 left the church in 2016 and the main reason cited was “they do not believe in God.” The Local reported on Tuesday that the 90,000 who left the church last year is almost double the number of those who quit in 2015. The steep drop saw as many as 1.5 percent of the entire membership abandon the church. The Swedish Church, which used pollsters Norstat to conduct the survey,
found that 40 percent of respondents left because they “no longer believe in God,” which was the most popular reason given. Another 18 percent said that they no longer found the churchgoing experience meaningful, while 17 percent said that it was “too expensive.” Pernilla Jonsson, head of analysis at the Swedish Church’s department for research, suggested that revelations last year that church officials made expensive trips abroad did not help with the public image.

Atheist Mocks Bible, Praises ‘Trinity of Science’ in Invocation Before Iowa Legislature
APRIL 12, 2017
A professing atheist recently delivered an opening invocation before the Iowa House of Representatives, in which he promoted atheistic ideals and converted a well-known Old Testament passage into a secular “prayer.” The Iowa House has a longstanding tradition of opening its meetings with prayers, which are typically offered by local pastors. However, on Wednesday, Justin Scott of the Eastern Iowa Atheists organization delivered what was reportedly the first ever atheistic invocation before the House.
“Instead of closing your eyes and bowing your heads today, please keep your heads up and your eyes open to be fully alert in this moment,” Scott began. “As you convene here in the people’s House, let me implore this body to invoke the holy trinity of science,” he continued. “Made up of reason, observation, and experience, this trinity has allowed humanity to explore the deep reaches of space, develop life-saving medicines, and vastly improve the human experience.”

Did the 7th Circuit Just Rule That Christians Are Bigots?
APRIL 12, 2017
Justice Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed. Breathe a sigh of relief. The fight against him confirms the importance of President Trump to religious freedom for Christians (and other traditional believers). For the latest news from the courts is not good for religious liberty. Last week, the 7th Circuit Court rewrote the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The majority ruled in Kimberly Hively v. Ivy Tech Community College that the 1964 Civil Rights Act’s ban on sex discrimination now includes gay and lesbian discrimination. It’s a breathtaking power grab. Here’s a good summary of all the various opinions by David Lat. Reagan-appointee Judge Posner gave the most jaw-dropping anti-democratic justification:

“We now understand that homosexual men and women … are normal in the ways that count, and beyond that have made many outstanding intellectual and cultural contributions to society” Posner says. He therefore concluded. “The compelling social interest in protecting homosexuals (male and female) from discrimination justifies an admittedly loose ‘interpretation’ of the word ‘sex’ in Title VII to embrace homosexuality: … in light of (to quote Holmes) ‘what this country has become.’” CONTINUE https://stream.org/did-the-7th-circuit-just-rule-christians-bigots/

Fights over Trump Leading evangelicals to leave their churches
APRIL 12, 2017
The 2016 presidential contest highlighted just how deeply divided the United States is over both politics and religion. The vast majority of white evangelicals (81 percent) voted for Trump. A strong majority of religious “nones” — those who do not identify with any religious tradition — voted for Clinton (68 percent). Of course, the divide does not stop at the vote. For example, between May 2016 and February 2017, almost every religious group came to oppose Trump’s proposed
temporary ban on allowing Muslims into the U.S. The exception? White evangelical Protestants, who increased their level of support for the policy. The largest gap on this issue is the one between evangelicals and nones, which grew from 28 to 41 percentage points. How did we get here? One answer is sorting. That is, people may reevaluate their religious membership when they sense political (or other) disagreement, leaving their houses of worship more homogeneous organizations.

Church in Alabama to form it’s own police force…
APRIL 12, 2017
The Alabama Senate has voted to allow a church to form its own police force. Lawmakers on Tuesday voted 24-4 to allow Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham to establish a law enforcement department. The church says it needs its own police officers to keep its school as well as its more than 4,000 person congregation safe.
Critics of the bill argue that a police department that reports to church officials could be used to cover up crimes. The state has given a few private universities the authority to have a police force, but never a church or non-school entity. Police experts have said such a police department would be unprecedented in the U.S.

Solar eclipse across U.S. called ‘a sign from God’
APRIL 11, 2017
A total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States this summer, an event that hasn’t happened in roughly a century. Everyone will experience on Aug. 21 at least 60 percent of the sun being covered, and the resulting semidarkness. Those within about a 60-mile wide diagonal line from the Pacific Northwest through South Carolina will see the sky go

dark and the accompanying temperature drop. In some areas of the country, the darkness will last more than two minutes and 30 seconds. Such wonders of nature largely were feared in older civilizations, and even while the mechanics of orbits crossing can be observed and predicted, they still make many people think of God today. MORE

APRIL 11, 2017
US President Donald Trump could lead the world into a catastrophic war with North Korea because of his inexperience and temperament, former British spy boss Sir John Sawers has warned. The former spymaster warned that Trump’s temperament could plunge the UK into a war in the Far East which would be more dangerous than anything that could emerge in Syria. “[Trump’s] not someone who fills me with confidence,” Sawers told the BBC.

“He doesn’t have the background and the experience and the instincts of being an effective US president, but it is in our interests that we have a US administration that upholds the international system, that supports its allies and supports international norms,” he said. The more serious figures in the US administration have been stepping in to make up for Trumps’ rashness and inexperience after the US missile strike on a Syrian airbase, said Sawers. MORE

The world’s five deadliest volcanoes … and why they’re so dangerous

APRIL 11, 2017
An eruption of Mount Etna recently caught out some BBC journalists who were filming there. The footage was extraordinary and highlighted the hazards volcanoes pose to humans and society. Since 1600, 278,880 people have been killed by volcanic activity, with many of these deaths attributed to secondary hazards associated with the main eruption. Starvation killed 92,000 following the 1815 Tambora eruption in Indonesia, for example, and a volcanic tsunami killed 36,000 following the 1883 Krakatoa eruption.
Since the 1980s, deaths related to volcanic eruptions have been rather limited, but this is not entirely a result of increased preparedness or investment in hazard management – it is significantly a matter of chance. Research shows that volcanic activity has shown no let up since the turn of the 21st century – it just hasn’t been around population centres. Indeed, there remain a number of volcanoes poised to blow which pose a major threat to life and livelihood.

FALLING AWAY: America Now Divided Over Bible Verses
APRIL 10, 2017
The population of the United States is split now over Syria, political parties, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, abortion, “gay marriage,” Russia, Putin, the Supreme Court, burning coal for fuel, clean air, clean water and the budget. And Bible verses. The newest addition to a long list of issues over which there is no general consensus surfaced just in the last week as the Bible Bee game show competition was launched live on Facebook, a first for the format.
The Bible Bee competition is being braadcast on the social media network Tuesdays at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. The broadcast is “groundbreaking,” said Emeal Zwayne, an executive for Living Waters and a spokesman for the competition that tests students’ knowledge of the Bible and their ability to memorize. “Additionally,” he said, “it’s a perfect combination of entertainment and edification.”

Trump’s Son Warns that Putin Won’t Push America Around!
APRIL 10, 2017
Donald Trump’s decision to launch a cruise missile attack on Syria proved he is not in league with Russia and will not be “pushed around” by Vladimir Putin, the US President’s son has told The Daily Telegraph. Eric Trump said his father was not intimidated by President Putin’s talk of war, and there would be “no-one harder” than President Trump if they “cross us”.
He also confirmed that President Trump’s decision to bomb a Syrian airbase to punish President Bashar al-Assad for a nerve gas attack last week was influenced by the reaction of his sister Ivanka, who said she was “heartbroken and outraged” by the atrocity. It came as Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, said Russia would face fresh sanctions if it did not pull its armed forces out of Syria and end its support for Assad.

BREAKING NEWS: Trump orders military advisers to prepare plans to strike North Korea
APRIL 10, 2017
President Trump has ordered his military advisers to be ready with a list of options to smash North Korea’s nuclear threat. One of the advisers, Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster, confirmed his Commander-in-Chief has made the order as a U.S. carrier strike group heads for the region. It is believed that among the options are combined special forces raids and pre-emptive missile strikes.
One of the problems facing an American-led operation to hit Pyongyang’s leader Kim Jong-Un is the intricate tunnel network under the capital. War-planners have had difficulty mapping out the subterranean complex and believe there are hundreds of underground artillery and airplane sites. McMaster described the decision to redeploy the USS Carl Vinson to the Sea of Japan as ‘prudent’ given North Korea’s ‘pattern of provocative behavior.’

President Trump to Host Passover Seder Tonight
APRIL 10, 2017
US President Donald Trump will host a White House Passover seder Monday night, an administration official told The Times of Israel on Sunday, confirming that the new administration will continue a tradition started by former president Barack Obama. Aside from the president, who is expected to attend, it is not yet clear which members of the administration will participate in the dinner, including Trump’s Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka.
The White House Seder began as an annual tradition under former president Barack Obama, who hosted the first such event in 2009, in the Old Family Dining Room. News that the Trump administration had planned to carry on the custom was first reported by Jewish Insider. Obama sought to establish this ritual after he participated in a Passover dinner during his successful 2008 presidential campaign, when he surprised Jewish members of his campaign staff by holding an impromptu seder in a hotel ballroom in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Could We Be in Phase 2 of This Ezekiel Prophecy?
APRIL 10, 2017
(By Grant Berry) Recently, when Hali and I were in Israel with one of our dear pastor friends, Pastor Hatim Jiryus, He asked me to share The Reconnection with some of our Arab-Israeli brethren living In the Galilee. The Holy Spirit led me to these verses in Ezekiel 37 where God directs His prophet to prophesy to the House of Israel. Here is some of what I shared, and you can click on the link at the end of this article to listen to the message for more detail. Ezekiel 37:1-14
When reading and meditating on these Scriptures, there are certain key points that stand out to me. First, God asks Ezekiel to prophecy with three separate phases and directives:
-To the dry bones to form flesh and bone and sinew; to come to life.
-To call on the four winds to release the breath (the Holy Spirit) into the Jewish people.
-To declare the resurrection of the body.
I see these three separate commands from God as strategic to our current understanding of Israel’s physical and spiritual restoration, that perhaps the division of them may actually help us to understand and process where we are in God’s timetable to reveal His end-time plans to us.

Facial-recognition software diagnosing genetic disorders
APRIL 10, 2017
Dr. Maximilian Muenke has a superpower: He can diagnose disease just by looking at a person’s face. Specifically, he can spot certain genetic disorders that make telltale impressions on facial features. “Once you’ve done it for a certain amount of years, you walk into a room and it’s like, oh, that child has Williams syndrome,” he said, referring to a genetic disorder that can affect a person’s cognitive abilities and heart.
And that’s an incredibly useful skill, even as genetic sequencing becomes more widespread. For one thing, it can be the factor that sends someone to get a genetic test in the first place. For another, people in many parts of the world don’t have access to genetic tests at all. That’s inspired years of effort to train a computer to do the same thing. Software that analyzes a patient’s face for signs of disease could help clinicians better diagnose and treat people with genetic syndromes.

4 things every Christian should pray for in the morning
APRIL 10, 2017
(By Patrick Mabilog) The Bible encourages us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). And a lifestyle of non-stop prayer starts in the morning. There’s something about praying in the morning that aligns us better. In a spiritual, mental and even physiological sense we seem more focused and clear with our day when we start it off with prayer. When it comes to praying in the morning, there’s no example better than Jesus. Mark 1:35 tells us, “And rising very early in the morning,
while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.” If Jesus made it a point to pray early in the morning, there’s no reason for us not to strive for us to do the same. Praying in the morning is a means of inviting God into our day even before it begins and allowing Him to go before us. Here are four things you can pray for in the morning as you approach God and offer your day to Him.

What You Should Know About Satan’s Power in This Age—and His Final Destination
APRIL 12, 2017
(By Becky Dvorak) I receive so many prayer requests about people suffering from demon oppression and possession, so we are going to study and find out what the Bible has to say about Satan and his demons. Who are they? Where did they come from? And more importantly, where is their final destination? Scripture talks about the fall of Lucifer. He was a beautiful angel whom God created.

But he deceived himself and became full of pride because of his beauty, and he thought he was greater than God, his creator. He even deceived a third of the angels to believe his deceitful lie and convinced them to rebel against God with him. Scripture says he fell from Heaven, “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weaken the nations!” (Is. 14:12). But before he fell, it says that he was the anointed cherub who covered and that he was in Eden, the Garden of God, as well as on God’s holy mountain. ”

Has Hell Frozen Over? Top UN Official Calls Jerusalem the Ancient Capital of Israel
APRIL 11, 2017
Irina Bokova, the director-general of UNESCO, which last year passed a motion denying the Jewish connection to Jerusalem, shocked many last week when she publicly affirmed the Jews’ historic connection to the Holy City. “In the Torah, Jerusalem is the capital of King David, where Solomon built the Temple and placed the Ark of the Covenant,” Bokova reminded the European Parliament in a session on Thursday.
“The protection of the heritage of Jerusalem is part of a broader vision for peace and the fight against all forms of denial of Jewish history, delegitimization of Israel and anti-Semitism,” she continued. No doubt Bokova will soon be facing a tidal wave of outrage from the Muslim world, which in recent years has tried to rewrite history and erase the Jewish connection to Jerusalem.

New species of baseball-sized spider discovered in Baja California mine
APRIL 10, 2017
While traipsing through the a mine in the hills of Baja California, Michael Wall and Jim Berrian struck gold. Skittering across the abandoned mine shaft was a beast that would send most people running. The entomologists instead ran toward the creature – a whopping spider the size of a baseball – and captured it for analysis. With juicy fangs, a hairy yellow abdomen and legs for miles, the arachnid was certainly a looker,

but neither of the scientists could classify it. Back in their lab at the San Diego Natural History Museum, the researchers had a eureka moment. Upon corroborating with Mexican entomologist and southern spider expert Maria Jimenez, the scientists confirmed that they had discovered a new species and genus. They named it Califorctenus cacahilensis, after the Sierra Cacahilas mountain ranges where it was first found.

HHGregg to close all 220 stores and Layoff 5000 Across the United States
APRIL 10, 2017
The going-out-of-business sales start this weekend at HHGregg. The bankrupt retailer is planning to begin liquidating its assets Saturday after failing to find a buyer by its Friday deadline. The company expects to close all of its 220 stores by the end of May, resulting in about 5,000 layoffs across the U.S. HHGregg CEO Bob Riesbeck in a statement said the company has “continued to fight for the future”
since March 6 when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. “While we had discussions with more than 50 private equity firms, strategic buyers and other investors, unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in our plan to secure a viable buyer of the business on a going-concern basis within the expedited timeline set by our creditors,” Riesbeck said. A company spokeswoman said Riesbeck was not available for an interview.

RETAIL APOCALYPSE: America’s Retailers Are Closing Stores Faster Than Ever
APRIL 10, 2017
The battered American retail industry took a few more lumps this week, with stores at both ends of the price spectrum preparing to close their doors. At the bottom, the seemingly ubiquitous Payless Inc. shoe chain filed for bankruptcy and announced plans to shutter hundreds of locations. Ralph Lauren Corp., meanwhile, said it will close its flagship Fifth Avenue Polo store — a symbol of old-fashioned luxury that no longer resonates with today’s shoppers.
And the teen-apparel retailer Rue21 Inc. could be the next casualty. The chain, which has about 1,000 stores, is preparing to file for bankruptcy as soon as this month, according to people familiar with the situation. Just a few years ago, it was sold to private equity firm Apax Partners for about a billion dollars.

The Power of the Cross Will Triumph Over Evil
APRIL 10, 2017
(Reported By Stephen Little) The Palm Sunday attacks that killed at least 43 people at two churches in Egypt are expected to spur religious freedom advocates to demand that Egyptian President el-Sisi do more to protect the Christian community. Just last week, el-Sisi met with President Trump in Washington. Leaders in Congress hoped President Trump would encourage Egypt’s leader to do more to prevent more attacks against Egypt’s churches,
but there’s been no word affirming those hopes. Earlier this month, scores of Middle East experts, including author Joel Rosenberg, had an off-the-record meeting with el-Sisi. Rosenberg told CBN News that while Muslim-Christian relations and the need to protect Christian communities did not come up at that meeting, he will be pressing those issues in the future.

NC Church Severs Ties With Boy Scouts of America Over Transgender Policy
APRIL 10, 2017
Another church is severing its relationship with the Boy Scouts of America over its controversial decision to allow transgender scouts. Coddle Creek Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church of North Carolina says it will no longer host its local Scout Troop. In a letter sent to the Charlotte Observer the church states in part: “Due to decisions by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) regarding matters of homosexuality and gender identity…
the church has determined that our church can no longer continue as partners.” The statement goes on to say,”Quite simply, we cannot partner with an organization that embraces what God’s Word clearly labels as sin.” The scout’s troop leader told WSOCTV that the church is the perfect place to hold the meetings and “reach young children to bring them to God.” MORE http://endtimeheadlines.org/2017/04/nc-church-severs-ties-boy-scouts-america-transgender-policy/

Once Vacation Ends, Congress Will Have 4 Days To Avoid Government Shutdown On April 29
APRIL 10, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) April 2017 could turn out to be one of the most important months in U.S. history that we have seen in a very long time. On April 6th, Donald Trump attacked Syria on the 100th anniversary of the day that the U.S. officially entered World War I, and now at the end of this month we could be facing an unprecedented political crisis in Washington. On Friday, members of Congress left town for their two week “Easter vacation”, and they won’t resume work until April 25th. What this means
is that Congress will have precisely four days when they get back to pass a bill to fund government operations or there will be a government shutdown starting on April 29th. Up to this point, there has been very little urgency by either party to move a spending bill forward. It is almost as if everyone is already resigned to the fact that a government shutdown will happen. The Democrats will greatly benefit from a government shutdown because they can just blame the entire mess on the Republicans. But for the GOP, this is essentially the equivalent of political malpractice.

Canada Experiences Record Breaking Snowfall, Mind-Boggling Pics to prove it
APRIL 7, 2017
The Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador has experienced a record-breaking snowstorm, with over 2 meters (7 feet) of snow burying the town of Gander. Locals have been sharing insane photos of themselves trying to dig out their houses and cars. Newfoundland in east Canada has had 135cm (53 inches) of snowfall since last Thursday, March 30, according to a weather recording of Gander International Airport by Environment Canada.
When that number is added to what was already on the ground, those lucky enough to live in places like Gander are dealing with about 238cm of snow, reports the Weather Network, “shattering” the entire province’s previous measly 2004 record of 174cm. So what does 93 inches / 7.8 feet of snow look like in the everyday world? A headache and quite a lot of workout, but also a bit of fun, pictures on social media reveal.

9 More Things to Do if You Miss the Rapture
APRIL 7, 2017
(By Dr. Dave Williams) As mentioned in Part One of this article, It is possible to be a professing Christian and not actually be in the faith. I shared 11 tips people should take to heart if they miss the rapture. Here are the final pieces of counsel to survive this terrible time if you miss God’s first roundup—the rapture.
12. Do not in any way, under any circumstances, align with the world leader.
Everyone is going to love him and even worship him. But if you listen to his lies, you’ll be drawn into a strong delusion that will seal your eternal fate (2 Thess. 2:9–12). You will be soon banished to hell because you didn’t love the truth.
13. Refuse to take a mark, a name, a number or a chip in your right hand or your forehead.
Refuse any microchip injections because Revelation 13 says this powerful world leader will require everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead. But once you get it, you will belong to Satan forever. It’s better to be shut out of the world economy and lose your physical life than be damned forever to the lake of fire (Rev. 14:9–11). The life of many believers during this time of the final shabua will end in beheading for refusal to take the mark of the beast (Rev. 20:4).

Harvard students say Trump is more dangerous than ISIS
APRIL 7, 2017
Over the past year and a half, college administrators and students have boldly spoken out against the election, and now the presidency, of Donald Trump. Perhaps nowhere was this more noticeable than on the left-leaning campus of Harvard University. Campus Reform has reported numerous times on the overwhelming liberal bias at the Ivy League university, and just this week, students there started an anti-Trump “resistance school”
with the goal of learning how to fight back against the president’s agenda. Students consistently cite the “danger” posed by President Trump, and claim to feel “threatened” by his policies. Wanting to know just how dangerous these students think Donald Trump is, Campus Reform went to Harvard to ask a simple question, “Who is more dangerous to Americans, Donald Trump or ISIS?”

DAYS OF LOT: Nearly Half of American Adults Infected With HPV
APRIL 7, 2017
More than 42 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 59 are infected with genital human papillomavirus, according to the first survey to look at the prevalence of the virus in the adult population. The report, published on Thursday by the National Center for Health Statistics, found that certain high-risk strains of the virus infected 25.1 percent of men and 20.4 percent of women.
These strains account for approximately 31,000 cases of cancer each year, other studies have shown. Two vaccines are effective in preventing sexually transmitted HPV infection, and researchers said the new data lend urgency to the drive to have adolescents vaccinated. “If we can get 11- and 12-year-olds to get the vaccine, we’ll make some progress,” said Geraldine McQuillan, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and lead author of the new report.

Russia will recognize W. Jerusalem as Israel’s capital only if E. Jerusalem becomes Palestinian
APRIL 7, 2017
In a diplomatic missive endorsing the two-state solution, Moscow has said that it is ready to recognize West Jerusalem as Israel’s official capital, providing that statehood is granted to Palestinians, who will base their capital in the eastern part of the city. “The stalling of the Middle East peace process has created conditions for unilateral moves that undermine the potential for an internationally accepted solution to the Palestinian problem, under which two states – Israel and Palestine
– could live in peace and security with each other and with their neighbors,” said the Russian Foreign Ministry in an English-language statement on its website. The latest round of talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority – Hamas-controlled Gaza did not participate – broke down in 2014, and since then violence has intensified in the West Bank. “We reaffirm our commitment to the UN-approved principles for a Palestinian-Israeli settlement, which include the status of East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state.

Nurse is Fired for Encouraging Cancer Patient to Pray
APRIL 6, 2017
A Christian nurse who was fired after offering to pray with patients before surgery says she was treated unfairly. Sarah Kuteh has been a nurse for 15 years, but she was dismissed from her job at Darent Valley Hospital in Britain last year after she spoke with patients about faith and prayer.
“All I had done was to nurse and care for patients. How could it ever be harmful to tell someone about Jesus?” she asked. Kuteh was dismissed in August for gross misconduct, even though her job involved asking people preparing for surgery about their religion. In a video posted by Christian Concern, she is giving God thanks for the support she has received from around the world.

Cancer Strikes Carman Again, but His Faith Stands Rock Solid
APRIL 6, 2017
Popular contemporary Christian artist Carman Licciardello had learned he has cancer again, not long after winning a previous intense battle, according to his recent Facebook post. During his routine checkup doctors found another tumor located on Carman’s shoulder. In February of 2013, Carman first shared that he had been diagnosed with myeloma cancer and was given only three to four years to live, but he ended up beating the cancer. By early 2014, medical tests said he was cancer free. Since that time he has been in remission with no trace of cancer in his body, but on March 30th of this year, he announced that the cancer has returned.
“I REALLY NEED YOUR PRAYERS: After 40 years I think I know a well timed attack when I see one. I’m about to go into the studio and start recording a song about my cancer healing testimony but I needed a routine check-up first. I’m a bit concerned because the Doctors gave me 3-5 years of remission time and I’m past my 4th year going into my 5th. The doctor discovered, on my shoulder, a tumor the size of a golf ball. Now I need surgery to remove it for a biopsy,” he wrote. MORE http://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2017/april/cancer-strikes-carman-again-but-his-faith-stands-rock-solid

One EMP Warhead From North Korea Could Destroy Our Nation!
APRIL 6, 2017
For those who are skeptical about North Korea’s capabilities, there is an excellent article presented by The Hill, entitled How North Korea could kill 90 percent of Americans.” The article is authored by none other than R. James Woolsey, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency and by Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, the Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security and a former analyst with the CIA.
Here are some excerpts from the article that readers should keep in mind: “The mainstream media, and some officials who should know better, continue to allege North Korea does not yet have capability to deliver on its repeated threats to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons. False reassurance is given to the American people that North Korea has not “demonstrated” that it can miniaturize a nuclear warhead small enough for missile delivery, or build a reentry vehicle for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of penetrating the atmosphere to blast a U.S. city.

Russian court considers Jehovah’s Witnesses ban
Russia's Supreme Court has begun hearing a government request to outlaw the Jehovah's Witnesses and declare it an extremist organisation.
APRIL 6, 2017
Russia’s Supreme Court has begun hearing a government request to outlaw the Jehovah’s Witnesses and declare it an extremist organisation. The justice ministry has already placed its headquarters near St Petersburg on a list of extremist groups. An estimated eight million people worldwide are part of the Christian-based movement, best known for going door to door looking for new converts. It has 175,000 members in Russia and 395 branches across the country. As the case began in Moscow on Wednesday,
lawyers representing the movement submitted a counter suit, asking the High Court to declare its members victims of political repression and the justice ministry’s action unlawful. The court ruled that this was not part of its jurisdiction, but did not say whose it was, Russia’s legal information agency reported. The case was eventually adjourned until Thursday.

10 Dangerous Signs of Prophetic Abuse
APRIL 6, 2017
(By Joseph Mattera) I have been in the body of Christ now since the late 1970s. I came into the prophetic movement in the early 80s and started moving out prophetically, even participating in prophetic presbytery while doing itinerant prophetic ministry. Furthermore, our local church has nurtured many outstanding prophetic leaders and voices as well as hosting numerous prophetic trainings and schools. My primary motivational gift and mode of ministry is prophetic, even when it seems like I am teaching. (I rarely use notes and teach and preach as prompted by the Holy Spirit when I am ministering.)

Furthermore, I have found the prophetic gift, including inspirational preaching, teaching and prophetic words to be the most edifying of all the gifts, as St. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 14. However, with every true gift of God comes either a counterfeit and or an abuse. You can say that about all of the cluster gifts mentioned in Ephesians 4:11. The prophetic gift can especially be very dangerous if left unchecked, since people think the words spoken are directly from God and will often obey them without question or the use of discernment. Based on all my years of operating in the prophetic, as well as mentoring, nurturing, overseeing and hosting many prophetic ministers, the following are 10 signs of prophetic abuse and manipulation.
I write this not to discourage prophetic function but as a guide to increase the level of discernment and true edification in the body of Christ. All sincere prophetic people should welcome these warning signs. If they are truly endeavoring to serve the Lord, they will welcome correction and or desire more discernment in the Church.

1. Prophecies are intentionally given to people of wealth.

I have noticed through the years that some prophetic leaders will discern who has the most money and influence in a church or conference and will target them for a prophetic word. The reasons are obvious: First and foremost, they know that business people desire to have a direct connection with God so they can make the right decisions in their high-risk field. Actually, all influential people feel this way because of all their responsibility. The motive of this prophetic manipulator is that they want the personal cell phone number of the wealthy person so they can develop a relationship with them outside of the church and perhaps receive personal donations. In my opinion, the motive is wrong, and the prophetic person is using their gift to manipulate unsuspecting potential donors. Not that it is wrong to give wealthy people a word, it is wrong when the hidden agenda is to befriend a potential high-end donor.

2. Prophecies commissioning people to high-level leadership.

Prophetic leaders sometimes give prophecies to actual or potential leaders, telling them that they are called to be an apostle, prophet or great leader. When prophetic leaders give prophecies commissioning people they don't know, in the context of a local church or conference, it is dangerous since they may be puffing up the head of an immature recipient. These are the kind of words that should not be given unless first clearing it with the person's overseer. It can also cause churches to split since the recipient can now claim to be an apostle and doesn't have to submit to their pastor's oversight anymore. What makes this prophetic abuse is the harm it creates in both the individual receiving the word and the local church where they serve. Furthermore, I suspect some prophetic people also commission people into the apostolic or prophetic because it gives them a strong link and even possibly authority over the persons to whom they give the word. By celebrating, affirming and commissioning others as apostles and prophets, many prophetic leaders and their networks have gained them as adherents. Much of the time, these kinds of relationships are short lived because it is built upon a faulty foundation.

3. Prophecies are based upon on prior knowledge.

In the 1980s, I had a visiting minister come to our local church. Before he ministered, he asked me questions about several of our members. I was shocked when he got up to minister because he started prophesying to every single person I spoke to him about. His prophecies were general exhortations that orbited around the information I gave him prior to the service. Not only that, the few people he prophesied over without having prior knowledge, we did not speak about them, he was mistaken and inaccurate. Of course, the people who received a word from him based on his conversations with me thought he was a great prophet. However, after the service, I confronted him, and he apologized and said he would never do that again.

4. Prophecies are given for monetary gain.

There are several well-known, so-called, prophets who charge money for giving prophetic words. You can even call them up on the phone and receive a word, for a price, of course. I was told that one person charges $5000 for a "life-transforming word." Although there are some biblical instances in which people gave gifts to a prophet (1 Sam. 9:7-9; 2 Kings 4:42), it was more of an act of honor than otherwise. The prophet did not demand it or charge a specific fee for his prophetic gift. Prophets who charge money to give words are guilty of the sin of "Simony," which is when a person uses the gifts of the Holy Spirit for monetary gain. This is something the Apostle Peter strongly corrected (Read Acts 8:20-22). Truly, whenever we think the gifts of God and or godliness is a means for financial gain, we are greatly in error (1 Tim. 6:5; Titus 1:11)!

5. Prophecies go beyond the Scriptures to teach doctrine.

I remember several years ago a famous healing evangelist was saying that he was in heaven and Abraham told him who wrote the book of Hebrews and other such things that can influence one's view of Scripture and biblical doctrines. I don't mind if someone says they visited heaven and heard amazing things; however, when we try to make the foundation of a biblical teaching an extra-biblical source, it is very dangerous. (For example, when Bishop Carlton Pearson erroneously said the Holy Spirit told him that all people would eventually be saved, which led him to preach a doctrine of "inclusion" and/or universalism). Consequently, if we allow this unbiblical mystical practice, we open a door for the enemy to put subjective revelation on the same level as Scripture, which can lead people to apostasy.

The greatest level of the prophetic will always be the Scriptures, once and for all given to the saints, and any tradition or prophetic word that claims to be equal to the Bible is in great error (Read 2 Pet. 1:19-21). Some charismatics are so extreme they put their spiritual experiences above the plain teaching of Scripture and/or are led by prophecies when making big decisions, even without a witness in their own spirit and or without checking biblical principles before making said decision.

6. Prophecies are used to manipulate relationships.

Some people will even use prophetic words to try to manipulate people into remaining close to them, serving them or even remaining their friend. I am not referring to accurate prophetic words given to a friend, employee or church member for their edification or for the sake of the kingdom, but words given for the purpose of emotionally manipulating a person into remaining in some kind of relationship. This is an abuse of the prophetic and very manipulative

7. Prophecies are used to get people to serve the prophet.

Some prophetic leaders will use the example of Elisha serving Elijah as a way of getting younger leaders to serve them (1 Kings 19). Although there is truth in this principle, it can also be used to manipulate naïve young prophetic people into waiting on older, more seasoned prophetic leaders. No matter who gives you a word, it should not be obeyed if it compromises the relationships and commitments you presently have, including to your spouse, family and local church, and if God doesn't clearly confirm it. Of course, in general, God will never tell you to leave your spouse and family.

8. The prophetic leader is not accountable when mistakes are made.

There have been many prophetic leaders who have declared words involving national catastrophes, events and even predictions about the last days. After it was clear they were in error, rarely does anyone have the guts to call them out in private or in public. Any prophetic leader who lacks a working, relational, accountability structure in their life, should shut their mouth until they get apostolically aligned for personal oversight.

9. Dramatic prophecies are given to build an audience.

Some leaders feel compelled to give a dramatic word every time they minister or are on T.V. This is because they depend on the dramatic to maintain their audience which also brings in their donations. I am of the opinion, we should never feel pressure to perform or to give a prophetic word unless the Lord is clearly leading us to do so. Case in point: One time, after I finished preaching and prophetically ministering in a church, the pastor announced that I was going to prophesy over every person in the service. I promptly took the microphone, corrected him and told him I was done ministering since I had no more of a leading to continue. I was never invited back to that church because I did not perform up to his standards and expectations; that is fine with me since I always endeavor to minister to an audience of one.

10. The prophecies draw attention to the prophet.

Some prophetic words begin and end with self-affirming accolades describing themselves as "the man of God sent to them" or "the prophet sent to them" or even as "the voice of God" that they need to hear. While this may be true in a very limited sense, there is only one completely accurate voice and expression of the Father: Hebrews 1:1, 2. I am usually suspicious when a person points to himself or herself when giving a word. A true word both edifies the church and exalts the Lord Jesus Christ, not the speaker (1 Cor. 12:3, 14:1-4). Whenever any minister or believer points to himself or herself instead of to Jesus, we should be very leery of that person. Paul said follow me as I follow Christ (1 Cor. 4:16). Since Jesus was not self-promoting, his so-called ministers involved in chronic self-elevation are not serving in the pattern of Christ.

In closing, I hope this article can serve as a guide for prophetic ministry in the church and beyond.

UK Bus Campaign Spreads The Words of Jesus at Easter
Peter Wooding
LONDON -- The founder of a U.K. Christian TV network has found a unique way to share famous quotes from Jesus -- by displaying them on buses throughout London.
Revelation TV's Howard Conder explains how God gave him the vision for this campaign, called QuoteJesus.com.
"The Lord spoke to me very clearly about starting to put the words of Jesus on the buses in London," he told CBN News. "We have a website. We have the buses booked. We're now on our second campaign."

Conder, who started his career as a musician, says he now believes God is using his previous self-promoting skills to now promote Jesus.

"I experienced first hand how bands and performers were marketed ruthlessly," he explains in a video posted on the Quote Jesus website "In time, I became a Christian and saw things in a new light. I channeled that same energy and drive into which I had to working in a purpose greater than myself."

Conder says he's overcome many challenges to launch this campaign, which he believes will impact many thousands of lives.

"There's 17.5 million people who visit London," he said. "There's between 8-9 million who live here. So we've got so many people who will, subliminally, will at least be looking at those scriptures, and here we have one here: 'You will be with me in paradise.'"

So what does the future hold for this unique evangelist project?
"I believe that the future of Quote Jesus is something that's not just for here in London," Conder said. "It's across our nation. But it's also I believe could go global. Why with all the millions of Christians that are around today, all they need to do is just get on board literally with us. But to help us to bring the quotes of Jesus to this generation."

With so much political correctness in the U.K. seeking to silence the Christian voice, the hope is that these public displays of quoting Jesus will play a significant part in people going on their own personal journey towards faith in Christ.

It’s Time to Prophesy in This Ezekiel 37 Hour
APRIL 1, 2017
(By Torrey Marcel Harper) While recently attending a prophetic round table in Washington, D.C. a word from the Lord concerning this year rang loud in my spirit. “We are in an Ezekiel 37 moment in time” out of this a movement is rising up from the ground. In this year of 2017, “the year of breakthrough,” prepare yourself for a ride like no other into the awesome plans and purposes of God. There are several things Holy Spirit began to share about this season and the seasons ahead. Let’s look at Ezekiel 37:1-14 through prophetic lens as it pertains to this year ahead and this transitional time in the world.
“The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He carried me out in the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, and He caused me to pass among them all around. And He caused me to pass among them all around. And there were very many in the open valley. And they were very dry” (Ezek 37:1-2).

DEVELOPING: Airports and nuclear power stations put on terror alert
APRIL 1, 2017
Britain’s airports and nuclear power stations have been told to tighten their defenses against terrorist attacks in the face of increased threats to electronic security systems. Security services have issued a series of alerts in the past 24 hours, warning that terrorists may have developed ways of bypassing safety checks. Intelligence agencies believe that Islamic

State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) and other terrorist groups have developed ways to plant explosives in laptops and mobile phones that can evade airport security screening methods. It is this intelligence which is understood in the past fortnight to have led the US and Britain to ban travelers from a number of countries carrying laptops and large electronic devices on board.

154 reported dead, after three rivers overflow in Colombia
APRIL 1, 2017
An avalanche of water from three overflowing rivers swept through a small city in Colombia while people slept, destroying homes and killing at least 154 unsuspecting residents in their sleep, authorities said Saturday. The incident triggered by intense rains happened around midnight in Mocoa, a city of about 40,000 located near Colombia’s southern border with Ecuador that is tucked between mountains at the crux of two rivers.

Muddy water and debris quickly surged through the city’s streets, toppling homes, ripping trees from their roots, lifting cars and trucks and carrying them downstream. Many of the residents did not have enough time to climb on top of their roofs or seek refuge on higher ground. President Juan Manuel Santos warned the death toll could continue to rise. “We don’t know how many there are going to be,” he said of the fatalities when he arrived at the disaster zone. “We’re still looking.” Read MOREhttp://www.fox5ny.com/news/245679392-story

Japan’s Mount Asama volcano erupts for the first time since 2009
APRIL 3, 2017
Mount Asama, a volcano on the border of Japan’s Gunma and Nagano prefectures has erupted On April 2, 2017. People in the vicinity immediately took to Twitter to share impressive pictures of the raging coloseus that hadn’t explosed since 2009. Asamayama (also known as Asama and Azumayama) has been relatively quiet since an eruption during January-February 2009.Based on JMA monthly reports,
there was no exceptional activity during 2011-2013. However, during 2014, the frequency of shallow volcanic earthquakes and tremors occurring immediately under the summit crater began to increase. In late April 2015, volcanic seismicity further increased.

RISE OF ISLAM: 500 churches close in London and replaced with 423 new mosques
APRIL 3, 2017
“London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together,” says London Islamic preacher Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi. The city of London – dubbed “Londonistan” by outspoken journalist Melanie Phillips – now has 423 new mosques, which are “built on the sad ruins of English Christianity.” So writes Italian journalist and writer, Arutz Sheva columniist Giulio Meotti in an article written for Gatestone Institute reported here.
The Hyatt United Church, for instance, on Hamilton Road, was purchased by the Egyptian community and is being converted into a mosque. St Peter’s Church is now the Madina Mosque, and the Brick Lane Mosque used to be a Methodist church. Not only buildings are converted, writes Meotti, but also people: “The number of converts to Islam [in London] has doubled; often they embrace radical Islam, as with Khalid Masood, the terrorist who struck Westminster.”

Saying the Wrong Thing On Facebook Could Cost You Up To $500K
APRIL 3, 2017
If you’re not putting too much thought into what you share on Facebook and your other social media accounts, this might be a good time to remember you must think before you post. Take this as a cautionary tale: A North Carolina woman is being forced to pay $500,000 to settle a defamation lawsuit over a post she wrote on Facebook, local TV station WCNC reports. A couple of years ago, Jacquelyn Hammond allegedly posted just one sentence about a former co-worker, without actually mentioning the woman by name.
That in itself shouldn’t be a problem. Right? Well, not exactly. The post said, “I didn’t get drunk and kill my kid.” According to the complaint, Hammond was referring to the son of a colleague, who died in a gun accident with another boy back in 1976. That colleague, who is the plaintiff in the current case, Davyne Dial, was not drunk when she lost her son, and she wasn’t responsible for his death, either.

DEVELOPING: 2 volcanoes spew ash in Russia’s Kamchatka rattled by quakes
APRIL 3, 2017
Two of Kamchatka’s volcanos – Kambalny and Kluchevskoy – have spewed ash thousands of meters into the air, as eruptions and seismic activity intensified in Russia’s far eastern region last week. The ash cloud spread some 100 km into the Pacific. “According to the satellite data of the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) on Monday morning, ash release was recorded on the Kambalny volcano.
The height of the ash release was up to 7 thousand meters above sea level,” the local Emergency Ministry branch said in a statement, adding that no civilians are at risk. The 2,156-meters-high Kambalny volcano in the southern part of the Kamchatka Peninsula is the southernmost active volcano in the region. The Kambalny volcano which unexpectedly started spewing ash several days ago after waking from a 250 year period of inactivity is being closely monitored.

Insightful Scriptures for Developing Your Heavenly Prayer Language
APRIL 3, 2017
(By Jared Laskey) Praying in tongues is an amazing and precious gift. It seems many churches have tried to shy away from it, hiding it in the back room, leaving it only to intercessory prayer meetings or counseling sessions. Some leaders may seem to apologize for it even though it is a biblical truth and is for today, trying to keep it a secret even though it was first seen publicly on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2).

First Corinthians 13 is known as the “love chapter” and is most often read at weddings. Even though it is a beautiful chapter, its context is referring to spiritual gifts and not marriage. This chapter was sandwiched in between chapters 12 and 14, which discuss the proper use of God’s awesome gifts.

This love chapter describes what our attitude and motivation is to be in using spiritual gifts. Verses 8-9 say, “Love never fails. But if there are prophecies, they shall fail; if there are tongues, they shall cease; and if there is knowledge, it shall vanish. But when that which is perfect comes, then that which is imperfect shall pass away.”

Chinese Christians Detained for 15 Days for Attending Bible Study
APRIL 3, 2017
More than 20 police officers from China’s southwestern Sichuan Province recently detained 15 Christians for attending a Bible study. Authorities broke into a church in mid-March and took into custody 15 Christians who had gathered for a Bible study. Officers accused them of illegally gathering and “gathering a crowd to disturb public order,” and detained them for 15 days. Additionally, they confiscated church seating, projectors, and air conditioning equipment. Li Ming, a
pastor of another local house church, Langzhong Church, reported that the authorities had also repeatedly targeted his congregation. For the past several Christmases, authorities seized Christians who worshipped at the church because they refused to meet at the official Three-Self Church. Last year, a woman surnamed Liang was detained for 15 days, and all of the church’s property was taken away.

WAR DRUMS: Trump vows to stop North Korea…
APRIL 3, 2017
Donald Trump has warned he will “solve” the nuclear threat posed by North Korea if China doesn’t. Speaking from the Oval Office in an interview with the Financial Times, the US president gave China an ultimatum: “Well if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will. That is all I am telling you.” In a separate interview with the publication, deputy White House national security adviser KT McFarland warned:
“There is a real possibility that North Korea will be able to hit the US with a nuclear-armed missile by the end of the first Trump term.” The US sees North Korea as its most pressing threat after former president Barack Obama warned Trump about the substantial advancements Pyongyang has made with their nuclear weapons and long-range missiles. Trump confirmed he would be discussing the issue of North Korea with Chinese president Xi Jinping when he hosts the world leader at his resort this week. The president added: “China has great influence over North Korea.

What Is America Going To Look Like When Stocks, Home Prices And Even Used Cars All Crash By At Least 50 Percent?
APRIL 3, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) Have you ever thought about what comes after the bubble? In 2008 we got a short preview of what life will be like, but most Americans seem to have come to the conclusion that the last financial crisis was just a minor bump in the road toward endless economic prosperity. But of course the truth is that the ridiculously high debt-fueled standard of living that we are enjoying now is not sustainable, and after this bubble bursts it will be an extremely painful adjustment for our society.
Since the last financial crisis, the U.S. national debt has nearly doubled, corporate debt has doubled, stock valuations have reached exceedingly ridiculous extremes, the student loan debt bubble has surpassed a trillion dollars, we are facing the largest unfunded pension crisis in U.S. history, and in many parts of the country (particularly the west coast) we are facing a housing bubble that is even worse than the one that burst in 2007 and 2008.

In Anticipation Of The Coming American Apocalypse, 2 Lawmakers Plan To Create ‘Christian Survivalist Centers’ In Rural Areas
APRIL 4, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) A couple of lawmakers from South Carolina want to establish a network of self-sufficient communities in their state in preparation for “societal collapse”. In the long-term, they hope to “train and equip one million neighborhood leaders” that will be able to establish “a fresh beginning for America” in the aftermath of the great crisis that is coming. State Representatives Josiah Magnuson and Jonathon Hill are both relatively young, they were both home-schooled, and each of their fathers are pastors.
They are calling their dream the “Virtue Solution Project”, and they are examples of a new breed of American politician that recognizes that the system is failing and that we desperately need to return to the values that this nation was founded upon. In the short-term, Magnuson and Hill hope that the centers that they are establishing will enable communities to be able to survive the extraordinary challenges that are rapidly approaching. Like someone else you may know, Magnuson and Hill are warning of a great economic collapse, catastrophic natural disasters, geopolitical instability and a complete breakdown of society.

12 Signs That A Day Of Reckoning Has Arrived For The U.S. Auto Industry
APRIL 4, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) In 2008, subprime mortgages almost single-handedly took down the entire financial system, and now a new subprime crisis is here. In recent years, the auto industry has been able to boost sales by aggressively pushing people into auto loans that they cannot afford. In particular, auto loans made to consumers with subprime credit have been accounting for an increasingly larger percentage of the market. Unfortunately, when you make loans to people that should not be getting them, eventually a lot of those loans are going to start to go bad,

and that is precisely what is happening now. Meanwhile, automakers and dealers are starting to panic as sales have begun to fall and used car prices have started to crash. If you work in the auto industry, you might remember how horrible the last recession was, and this new downturn could eventually turn out to be even worse. The following are 12 signs that a day of reckoning has arrived for the U.S. auto industry…

Muslims Turning From Islam in Droves, Churches Seeing Revival
APRIL 4, 2017
Muslim refugees fleeing the increasing violence in their home countries and cities are shedding their Islamic religion for Christianity. As European countries accept the migrants, the migrants, in turn, accept Jesus. They’re the driving force behind a growing revival in long-struggling churches. “European churches have struggled for decades to share the gospel with modern secular Europeans,” Matthew Kaemingk, a professor at the Fuller Theological Seminary in Seattle, told Fox News.
“They have found Muslim immigrants to be much more open to the message of Christianity.” As migrants leave behind everything they’ve ever known, the church becomes a beacon of hope. “Their sense of homelessness is not only geographical, it is spiritual. Churches who offer these Muslims real and meaningful hospitality are seeing some surprising results,” Kaemingk said.

Biblical Creation Group Included on List of Disreputable Websites
APRIL 4, 2017
A prominent Creation science group is pushing back after their website was included on a widely-shared list of allegedly untrustworthy sources and described as “junk science.” After “fake news” became a subject of national discussion during the 2016 presidential election, Melissa Zimdars, an assistant professor of communication at Merrimack College, compiled an online document that lists disreputable websites and news sources.
Originally created as a resource for her students, Zimdars’s document lists hundreds of “false, misleading, clickbait-y, and satirical” websites. “Obviously, fake news is a major problem,” Zimdars wrote in a column for The Washington Post. “We need to make sure people have the tools to detect it, and we need to understand why people may purposefully share news they know to be fake—maybe they’re being malicious, they think it’s funny or it aligns with what they want to be true.

20,000 Christians Tell Congress to Stand for Biblical values
APRIL 4, 2017
More than 20,000 Americans sent a letter to every member in Congress asking them to take a stand for Christian values. My Faith Votes, a non-partisan Christian organization, hand-delivered the open letter to Congress this week after it was signed by Christians across the nation. Christian leaders like Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Dr. Alveda King and J.D. Greear are the among the thousands who signed it.
The letter calls on Congress to stand by four basic principles: Religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, the protection of the family and marriage, and compassion for the least of those in our society.”The letter states that religious liberty is “our first freedom,” and is “more than a freedom to worship or attend a worship service. It covers the right to live out faith with a clear conscience in the public square.”

US withdraws funding from UN agency…
APRIL 4, 2017
The State Department said on Monday it was ending U.S. funding for the United Nations Population Fund, the international body’s agency focused on family planning as well as maternal and child health in more than 150 countries. In a letter to U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, the State Department said it was dropping the funding because the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) “supports, or participates in the management of, a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”
The cut marks U.S. President Donald Trump’s first move to curtail funding for the United Nations and is likely to raise further questions about how deep those cuts will eventually go throughout the organization, where the United States is the top donor. It comes after Trump in January reinstated the so-called Mexico City Policy that withholds U.S. funding for international organizations that perform abortions or provide information about abortion.

Upgraded Humans Will Become Next Billion-Dollar Industry
APRIL 3, 2017
Investors searching for the next transformative technology destined to turn a bunch of Ivy League dropouts into billionaires, and half the market into a loose slot machine, need only look in the mirror. “The greatest industry of the 21st century will probably be to upgrade human beings,” historian Yuval Harari, author of the fascinating new book “Homo Deus,” told MarketWatch.
For all of humanity’s scientific, economic and artistic achievements, we have neglected this ultimate self-improvement project, Harari said. Our bodies and brains, after all, still run on the same hardware and software that evolved some 200,000 years ago. Alphabet’s GOOG, +0.01% GOOGL, +0.09% Google already has a unit devoted to overcoming death, Harari noted.

Man Gets Married To a Robot After Failing To Find Partner…
APRIL 3, 2017
A Chinese engineer has “married” a robot he created after failing to find a human spouse. Zheng Jiajia, 31, an artificial intelligence expert who designs and creates robots in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, created the “female” robot at the end of last year, the Qianjiang Evening News reported. The robot, which he named Yingying, can identify Chinese characters and images and even say a few simple words, the report said. Zheng “married”
his creation in a simple ceremony on Friday, according to the report. Yingying wore a black suit on the day and “her”head was covered with a red scarf during the ceremony, a traditional Chinese wedding ritual. Witnesses to the event were Zheng’s mother and his friends. One of his friends told the newspaper that Zheng had grown frustrated after failing to find a girlfriend.

DAYS OF LOT: University installs condom dispensers amid STD spike…
APRIL 3, 2017
Condom dispensers have been installed in several dorms at the University of South Dakota in response to a rise in the number of sexually transmitted disease cases in the state. The dispensers, which were installed last week, were placed in the bathrooms of six residence halls, a campus official told The College Fix.
John Howe, associate dean of students, said via email that along with providing the dispensers in bathrooms, the university will also place “small posters affixed to the wall with student health messages that will be changed monthly.” Data from the South Dakota Department of Health show that in 2016, the state saw the most chlamydia cases ever in one year and the most gonorrhea cases since the 1980s, KDLT reports.

Concerns Rise Of Artificial Superintelligence Eliminating Humanity!
APRIL 3, 2017
This is the way the world ends: not with a bang, but with a paper clip. In this scenario, the designers of the world’s first artificial superintelligence need a way to test their creation. So they program it to do something simple and non-threatening: make paper clips. They set it in motion and wait for the results — not knowing they’ve already doomed us all. Before we get into the details of this galaxy-destroying blunder, it’s worth looking at what superintelligent A.I. actually is, and when we might expect it.

Firstly, computing power continues to increase while getting cheaper; famed futurist Ray Kurzweil measures it “calculations per second per $1,000,” a number that continues to grow. If computing power maps to intelligence — a big “if,” some have argued — we’ve only so far built technology on par with an insect brain. In a few years, maybe, we’ll overtake a mouse brain. Around 2025, some predictions go, we might have a computer that’s analogous to a human brain: a mind cast in silicon.

Matt Drudge Warns That President Trump is in Danger in Rare Interview
APRIL 3, 2017
Since ending his television program on Fox News Channel several years ago, Matt Drudge has become a bit of a recluse, even if millions of Americans turn to him for their news multiple times a day. But every once in a great while, he will stick his head out and make a media appearance, as he did Friday in honor of conservative nationally syndicated talk radio host Dr. Michael Savage’s 75th birthday. Getting behind the microphone,
it seemed like the investigative journalist never left the medium through which he once commanded an audience in the millions. What Drudge had to saw to Savage’s audience, however, was not entirely joyful. President Donald Trump, he said, is in grave danger because he is “surrounded by traitors” in the government. Despite all other outward appearances, he added, the Trump presidency is “in crisis.”

PROPHECY WATCH: Employees in Sweden line up to get microchip implants
APRIL 3, 2017
It may not be the “Mark of the Beast” yet but it sure does look like the forerunner technology is now unfolding and preparing the masses to eventually embrace the real deal! The syringe slides in between the thumb and index finger. Then, with a click, a microchip is injected in the employee’s hand. Another “cyborg” is created. What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish startup hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.
Revelation 13:16-18
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
The injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted. “The biggest benefit I think is convenience,” said Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and CEO of Epicenter. As a demonstration, he unlocks a door by merely waving near it. “It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.”

UPDATE: ISIS Claims Russia Bombing ‘a Metro to Hell for the Worshipers of the Cross’
APRIL 3, 2017
At least eight fatalities have been reported and dozens injured today by two explosions on a subway system in St. Petersburg, Russia. A spokesman for Russia’s top anti-terror agency says law enforcement agents have found and defused another explosive device on St. Petersburg’s subway. ISIS supporters were praising the attack, according to the website Voactiv.
It reported that an ISIS supporter on the terror group’s al-Minbar online forum wrote, “We ask Allah to bless the operation by the lions of the Caliphate, we ask Allah to kill the Crusaders.” Another wrote that the bombing created “a metro to hell for the worshipers of the Cross” and claimed that the attacks were revenge for Russia’s attacks on ISIS in Syria’s civil war.

Chicago Resident Calls For Children To Be Equipped With Bulletproof Helmets, Vests…
APRIL 3, 2017
After a violent day in the South Shore neighborhood, a longtime resident questioned why there is no the outrage from black activists. “I see them coming out always downtown protesting against the police. But never do I see them inside the black community,” activist Tio Hardiman said. Hardiman of Violence Interrupters visited the South Shore neighborhood after seven people were killed in three separate shootings less than 12 hours apart on Thursday.

Hardiman said he wasn’t joking when he suggested that “young people in the South and West Sides of Chicago be equipped with helmets and bullet-proof vests.” Doc. Matt Harrington, CEO of Ammo Coding Systems, was with Hardiman. He’s behind legislation that would require ammunition manufacturers to make bullets traceable. “Bullets just don’t come from a bullet fairy.”

Indiana Senate Passes Bill Protecting Religious Expression in Public Schools
APRIL 3, 2017
The Indiana Senate has passed a bill meant to protect religious expression in public schools. H.B. 1024 passed 44-5 on Thursday despite opposition from groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). “House Bill 1024 only puts prayer back into schools. It does not mandate or force students to participate in it,” said sponsor Rep. John Bartlett, D Indianapolis. “It is giving Hoosiers the ability to express their faith without fearing discrimination.” “It also brings clarification to the First Amendment, which allows people to practice their faith.

However, it restricts you from forcing your faith on others,” he said. The bill passed the passed the House 83-12 last month, and went on to clear a Senate Committee 8-2 weeks later. “Public school students may pray or engage in religious activities or religious expressions before, during, and after the school day in the same manner and to the same extent that students may engage in nonreligious activities or expression,” the legislation reads in part.

Is T-Mobile Waging ‘War on Prayer’ Over Extra Fee Charges?
APRIL 3, 2017
Thousands of believers are realizing they’re being charged extra by one of the nation’s leading wireless service providers for participating in prayer line conference calls after a new policy was instituted last year.In October, T-Mobile announced a new policy in which it charges customers $0.01 per minute on top of what they already pay in their monthly service plans when they call “out-of-plan numbers.” According to the organization, out-of-plan numbers include chat lines,

radio broadcast lines and similar services. The company said it charges the fee because “out-of-plan calls tend to cost more for T-Mobile to complete.”Because of the new plan, people of all faiths who participate in daily prayer calls organized by various groups and organizations, some of which operate 24/7, are seeing the $0.01 per minute add up in their bills. Additionally, many are having to cut back on the prayer calls they participate in because of the charges.

Growing Number of Americans Love Jesus but Don’t Go to Church
APRIL 3, 2017
While an increasing number of Americans are reportedly abandoning the institutional church and its defined boundary markers of religious identity, many Americans still believe in God and practice faith outside its walls, a new Barna study has found. Barna has released a report on the first of a two-part exploration of faith and spirituality outside the church, looking at the “fascinating segment of the American population who, as the saying goes, ‘love Jesus but not the church.'”

One-tenth of the population comprises those who self-identify as Christian and who strongly agree that their religious faith is very important in their life, but are “dechurched,” meaning they have attended church in the past, but haven’t done so in the last six months or more, the Barna study says, adding that only seven percent of the population belonged to this category in 2004.

Christian Air Force Doctor Feels Targeted for His Faith
MARCH 31, 2017
An Air Force doctor who is a known Christian with a stellar 26-year military record has been punished for allegedly making derogatory comments about homosexuality, even though he denies the charge and was cleared by an official investigation. Col. Michael Madrid believes the Air Force is targeting him for his religious views and is fighting back. “I feel like the full power of the Air Force is coming down on me because of my faith,” he said.

Madrid says it all started when he tried to mentor a young Airman struggling with his career on the Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming. That airman also happened to be gay. Madrid, a flight surgeon, said he simply wanted to help support the young man. A year later however, Madrid supported a court-martial against the young officer after he was charged with multiple criminal offenses including illegally bringing a loaded weapon onto the base, prescribing narcotics illegally and using them while performing duties.

Christian Nurse Fired for Offering to Pray With Her Ailing Patients
MARCH 31, 2017
If anyone should be able to pray for people in their line of work, you would think it would be a nurse right? Think again! The Employment Tribunal will hear the case of a Christian nurse dismissed by the National Health Service (NHS) after she spoke to patients about her faith and occasionally offered prayer. Sarah Kuteh, who has 15 years’ nursing experience, was sacked for gross misconduct in August 2016. She had worked at Darent Valley Hospital since 2007. Her job involved asking patients about their faith as part of a pre-op assessment questionnaire.

From time to time, this led to a conversation about faith with the patient. During the time that she worked in the pre-op assessment department, Mrs. Kuteh dealt with several hundred patientsHowever, following just one official complaint and a few verbal complaints which were noted down by nurses, Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust began disciplinary proceedings which led to her dismissal. The Trust also referred her to the Nursing and Midwifery Council for disqualification proceedings.

BIG BROTHER: Facial Recognition Could Convict Americans For Crimes Didn’t Commit…
MARCH 31, 2017
It’s often the case that new technologies arrive on the scene faster than our society and its legal code can keep up. Sometimes this can be a good thing. For instance, 3D printing allows people to print out unregulated gun parts, thus allowing gun owners to circumvent the onerous laws of our government, which has struggled to come up with new laws to restrict the technology. When technology advances at a breakneck pace however, it can also be quite dangerous for our liberties. This is especially true in regards to privacy.
If a new technology makes it easy for the government to track us, you can bet that the government is going to take its sweet time updating the legal code in a way that will protect us from surveillance. That certainly seems to be the case with facial recognition software. During a recent Congressional Oversight Committee hearing, members of both political parties sounded the alarm on the FBI’s use of the technology, and read the written testimony of Electronic Frontier Foundation senior staff attorney Jennifer Lynch:

WikiLeaks Reveals CIA CoverUp of Hacking Attacks, Framed as Russian or Chinese Activity’
MARCH 31, 2017
WikiLeaks has published hundreds more files today which it claims show the CIA went to great lengths to disguise its own hacking attacks and point the finger at Russia, China, North Korea and Iran. The 676 files released today are part of WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 tranche of files and they claim to give an insight into the CIA’s Marble software, which can forensically disguise viruses, trojans and hacking attacks. WikiLeaks says the source code suggests Marble has test examples in Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic and Farsi (the Iranian language).
It says: ‘This would permit a forensic attribution double game, for example by pretending that the spoken language of the malware creator was not American English, but Chinese.’ This could lead forensic investigators into wrongly concluding that CIA hacks were carried out by the Kremlin, the Chinese government, Iran, North Korea or Arabic-speaking terror groups such as ISIS. WikiLeaks, whose founder Julian Assange remains holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, said Vault 7 was the most comprehensive release of US spying files ever made public

New Claim Says Department of Education Indoctrinates Students Into Islam
MARCH 31, 2017
Christian Action Network has sent a “Letter of Demand” to the U.S. Department of Education “mandating that it cease its Islamic education program for the nation’s public schools.” The Islamic education program is made available to schools and teachers through the PBS LearningMedia website. Christian Action Network warns that if the conditions of its “Letter of Demand” are not met within 60 days, it will file a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the federally
funded program. CAN is also issuing a “Letter of Demand” to PBS demanding that it also remove all Islamic educational material from its PBS LearningMedia website that violates the U.S. Constitution. CAN President Martin Mawyer says, “Much of this so-called educational material is nothing more than indoctrinating students into Islamic religious beliefs, duties and actions.”

Supreme Court to decide whether religious hospitals should be considered part of church
MARCH 31, 2017
A group of religious hospitals are asking for the Supreme Court to protect it from a group of lawyers that claim the hospitals are not a part of the church. The cadre of class-action lawyers has been arguing through litigation that several religious hospital networks should not be allowed to provide their employees with church pension plans. The litigation has put the livelihoods of nuns from the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor in jeopardy, according to the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of the hospitals—
Advocate Health Care Network in Chicago, St. Peter’s Healthcare System headquartered in New Jersey, and Dignity Health in California. Over the past four years, the group of lawyers has brought nearly 100 lawsuits against various Catholic and Protestant Hospitals around the country, claiming that the non-profit organizations have broken the law by participating in special church pension plans.

China Cracks Down on Homeschooling, Students ‘Should not be Allowed to Study at Home’
MARCH 31, 2017
China’s communist government over the years has restricted religious practice, political speech, assembly and other practices regarded as rights in the West. Now it is cracking down on homeschooling, which had been surging in the repressive nation because so many parents object to the political indoctrination in government-controlled education. And one has to wonder how long this will be in full-effect in America? How long will the government in America allow “Homeschooling”?
The news comes from the Home School Legal Defense Association, which defends homeschooling families worldwide. Spokesman Mike Donnelly, the director of global outreach for the group, said in a new report, “Enough Chinese parents have turned to homeschooling to make the movement a concern for the national government.” He said the nation’s General Office of the Ministry of Education recently issued a statement “officially condemning homeschooling.”

Breaking News: Venezuela on the Brink of Autocracy
MARCH 31, 2017
“Venezuela took its strongest step yet toward one-man rule under the leftist President Nicolás Maduro as his loyalists on the Supreme Court seized power from the National Assembly in a ruling late Wednesday night.
The ruling effectively dissolved the elected legislature, which is led by Mr. Maduro’s opponents, and allows the court to write laws itself, experts said. The move caps a year in which the last vestiges of Venezuela’s democracy have been torn down, critics and regional leaders say, leaving what many now describe as not just an authoritarian regime, but an outright dictatorship…” To read the rest of this article,

Why Now Is the Most Dangerous Time for You to Be a Christian
MARCH 31, 2017
(By Dr. Mark Rutland) The age of martyrs is now. It is misguided to believe that the worst persecution of Christians took place in the ancient Roman Empire. We are moved by the harrowing accounts of Christians being thrown to lions in the Colosseum, though the numbers may actually be somewhat inflated. The brutality of the first-century Roman persecution was real and those early martyrs should be honored, but in all of human history, the most dangerous time to be a Christian is actually right now.
A staggering 90,000 Christians were martyred in 2016 alone, according to Dr. Massimo Introvigne, director of the Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR). Approximately 600 million are not entirely free to worship. The CESNUR study goes on to explain that the major source of persecution has shifted. In the not-too-distant past, the state perpetrators of persecution were the atheistic communist nations, such as those in the former Soviet Union. At one point, the government of Albania falsely boasted that they had eradicated Christianity in that country. When communism fell, they discovered they were wrong.

BREAKING NEWS: Mike Flynn Offers to Testify in Exchange for Immunity
By Ricky Scaparo on Mar 30, 2017 09:38 pm
Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser, has offered to be interviewed by House and Senate investigators who are examining the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in exchange for immunity from prosecution, according to his lawyer and a congressional official. But the congressional official said investigators were unwilling to broker a deal with Mr. Flynn —
who resigned last month for misleading White House officials about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the United States — until they are further along in their inquiries and they better understand what information Mr. Flynn might offer as part of a deal. In a statement on Thursday evening, Mr. Flynn’s lawyer confirmed discussions with the House and Senate Intelligence Committees about possible testimony by his client.

Police Ready to Roll Out Weaponized Drones
By Ricky Scaparo on Mar 30, 2017 09:34 pm
Connecticut lawmakers are considering whether the state should become the first in the country to allow police to use drones outfitted with deadly weapons, a proposal immediately met with concern by civil rights and liberties advocates. The bill would ban the use of weaponized drones, but exempt police. Details on how law enforcement could use drones with weapons would be spelled out in new rules to be developed by the state Police Officer Standards and Training Council.

Officers also would have to receive training before being allowed to use drones with weapons.”Obviously this is for very limited circumstances,” said Republican state Sen. John Kissel, of Enfield, co-chairman of the Judiciary Committee that approved the measure Wednesday and sent it to the House of Representatives. “We can certainly envision some incident on some campus or someplace where someone is a rogue shooter or someone was kidnapped and you try to blow out a tire.” READ MORE http://www.fox5ny.com/news/244994462-story

The Ticking Time Bomb That Will Wipe Out Virtually Every Pension Fund In America
By Ricky Scaparo on Mar 30, 2017 08:59 pm
(By Michael Snyder) Are millions of Americans about to see the big, juicy pensions that they were counting on to fund their golden years go up in flames in the biggest financial disaster in U.S. history? When Bloomberg published an editorial entitled “Pension Crisis Too Big for Markets to Ignore“, it simply confirmed what a lot of people already knew to be true. Pension funds all over America are woefully underfunded, and they have been pouring mind boggling amounts of money into very risky

investments such as Internet stocks and commercial mortgages. Just like with subprime mortgages in 2008, this is a crisis that everyone can see coming well in advance, and yet nothing is being done about it. On a day to day basis, Americans generally don’t think very much about pensions. Most of those that have been promised pensions simply have faith that they will be there when they need them.

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: Green comet to fly by Earth on April 1st 2017
MARCH 31, 2017
Green comet 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresak is flying over Earth’s North Pole this week where sky watchers can find it all night long not far from the bowl of the Big Dipper. At closest approach on April 1st it will be just 21 million km from Earth–an easy target for backyard telescopes and almost visible to the naked eye.
“On March 22nd I caught 41P ‘eating’ M108, the Surfboard Galaxy,” says Aoshima. “The comet’s green atmosphere appeared to swallow the distant spiral galaxy as it exited Ursa Major.” Why green? Like many comets, 41P has a verdant hue because its atmosphere contains diatomic carbon (C2)–a substance that glows green in the near vacuum of space.

Texas Struck With Tornadoes, Strong Winds and Giant Hail, 200,000 Without Power
MARCH 31, 2017
Reports are indicating that Powerful thunderstorms and tornadoes have left behind serious damage across North Texas on Tuesday and Wednesday and triggered power outages to more than 200 000 people. There is an enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms Thursday from southern parts of Illinois and Indiana, southeast Ohio south across the Tennessee Valley to central Mississippi. NWS preliminary reports for March 28 mention 16 tornadoes, all of them in Texas.
Tennis ball-sized hail and 119 km/h (74 mph) wind gusts were reported in Seymour, while El Reno, across the border in Oklahoma, registered 153 km/h (95 mph) wind gusts. On this sad day, three storm chasers were killed in a two-car accident near Spur, Texas. On Wednesday, two brothers, aged 11 and 12, died after they were electrocuted by downed power lines in a heavily wooded area in East Forth Worth.
