The Bible says during the days of tribulation the world will be a one world system, a one world government, one world religion, and a one world currency, a cashless society. You will not be able to buy or sell without a mark on your hand or forehead.
Here are a few photos that I saw posted within the last couple weeks. You may have seen photos like this yourself posted or you may have seen actual photos like this yourself in person.
Either way... friends & family brothers & sisters, everything in the Bible is without fail, every word of scripture is true and accurate. We are witnessing Biblical prophecy being fulfilled at every level down to the last detail. Please..for anyone who has not yet given their lives to Jesus Christ, the hour is late. God is giving this opportunity to repent and trust Jesus Christ as LORD and savoir.

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.

Luke 24:46-47

Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
“and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Here we have the President of Ghana NANO AKUFO-ADDO reading his copy of the LOCKSTEP document from the Rockefeller Foundation. Many African & South American nations have had their Presidents telling the world that COVID-19 is a PLANdemic HOAX event, and they have been trying to Wake Up the rest of the world to the massive deception. People need to quit worrying about the fake COVID-19 or the planned/staged Riots (they are the distractions, NOT THE MAIN EVENT), and start getting ready to resist the New World Order takeover. Have a plan to get out of the cities (if you haven't done so already), accumulate dry goods & canned meats that can keep without refrigeration, and stock up on bullets and ammo to defend your family in place, while you still have a window of opportunity remaining. Plan for the worst, hope for the best, and stop procrastinating. We are the ones that we have been waiting for, we are responsible for our own Freedom. If you are living in Europe, UK, Canada, USA, Australia, or New Zealand, you need to get prepared for a fight, or try to bug out now to Africa or South America if possible. The main thing is that if you plan to stay in place, do get prepared for a fight, because it absolutely is coming; if you aren't prepared to defend in place, you need to get to Africa or South America as soon as possible. Mexico is much safer than Canada or the USA right now. Once that wall at the southern border is finished, you will not be allowed to flee southbound any longer. Time is ticking away!

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro said on Tuesday that he will consider pulling the country out of the World Health Organization once the coronavirus pandemic has passed.

Speaking to CNN Brasil, Bolsonaro said the WHO has not acted responsibly and has lost a lot of credibility, repeating recent criticism of what he claimed last week is a “partisan political organization.”

Leaked Democrat Memo Warns Of Danger Behind Black Lives Matter
by Matthew Boyle

A leaked 2015 internal Democrat Party memo warned top House Democrats not to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement because it was described by the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) as a “radical movement.”


The memo, from then-DCCC official Troy Perry addressed to “DCCC Staff” on Thursday Nov. 19, 2015, noted that the Democrats’ 2016 presidential candidates “have struggled to respond to tactics of the Black Lives Matter movement.” Perry was at the time he wrote this the DCCC’s Director of Diversity and Public Engagement.
 BLM Memo


BLM Memo by Breitbart News on Scribd

Page 2 is not shown in this preview.
“While there has been little engagement with House candidates, candidates and campaign staff should be prepared,” Perry wrote.


The DCCC is the official arm of the Democrat Party charged with electing Democrats to the U.S. House of Representatives. When this 2015 memo was drafted, Democrats were in the minority in the U.S. House—seeking a return to the majority that they did not achieve in the 2016 elections as now President Donald Trump won the White House and the GOP held its House majority riding the president’s coattails. Later, though, Democrats would win the House majority back in the 2018 midterm elections.


Perry warned recipients of his memo in the next line that it was top secret and confidential—not to be shared with anyone. “This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building,” he wrote. “Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone.”


But the document ended up leaking through hacker Guccifer 2.0 in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election late in the summer of 2016, just after Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton had secured the nomination and the general election kicked off.


In the two-page memo, the then-DCCC official Perry described Black Lives Matter as a “radical movement” intent on ending “anti-black racism.”


“Though police abuses are a central component, the founders view the movement more broadly,” the Democrat memo reads.


It continues by noting that Black Lives Matter also seeks “Criminal Justice Reform,” particularly “sentencing reform, ending prison industrial complex, police reform: referring to hiring, training, and unfair policing tactics.”


The movement also, per the Democrat memo, seeks an “end to police brutality” and stopping of “killings of unarmed African Americans.” It notes that the Black Lives Matter movement has it roots in the aftermath of the acquittal of George Zimmerman, the Hispanic man who killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, during Barack Obama’s presidency. To achieve these goals, the Democrat memo continues, Black Lives Matter pushes to “collect data on police shootings” and for a “demilitarization of the police.”


The DCCC memo then elaborates on recommended tactics for Democrats to handle Black Lives Matter activists. When meeting with them, the Democrats warned against large gatherings.


“If approached by BLM activists, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists,” the Democrat memo reads. “Invited BLM attendees should be limited. Please aim for personal or small group meetings.”


In this section, the Democrats warn their members and candidates against supporting anything Black Lives Matter activists are pushing them to back. “Listen to their concerns,” the memo says, but “don’t offer support for concrete policy positions.”


The memo also recommends that Democrats “lead from behind” when it comes to Black Lives Matter, as it says the burgeoning movement “needs partners” but its members are “leary of politicians who hijack their message to win campaigns.”


“This response will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger BLM activists,” the memo adds on this point. “This is the worst response.”


The final part of the memo recommends Democrat talking points in response to Black Lives Matter. The memo explicitly tells Democrats not to say “all lives matter” and warns them to not speak of “black on black crime.” This is because, the memo notes, Black Lives Matter activists consider these points “red herring attacks.”


The document concludes by providing Democrats with talking points about what to say, including that “many communities in America feel unfairly targeted by police and it’s an issue that requires addressing” as “evidenced by the DOJ Ferguson Report.” It recommends exploring “reforms to ensure officers are properly trained and don’t infringe on citizens’ rights” and holding “police accountable to their actions when it’s a clear case of wrongdoing” while rebuilding “the relationship between police and community; ensuring officers are not just in the community when something bad is happening.” It also admits “a history of systemic racism” that “continues to confront the daily lives of African Americans,” and the memo says America “must look for ways to address this legacy and make sure Africans American feel they are treated with fairness and dignity.”


The Black Lives Matter movement was furious with the DCCC memo at the time of the leak, issuing its own response denouncing the top Democrat Party officials for being dismissive of the growing group.
“We are disappointed at the DCCC’s placating response to our demand to value all Black life. Black communities deserve to be heard, not handled. People are dying,” the official Black Lives Matter Facebook page said in response:


Whether Republican, Democrat or otherwise, our elected officials have an ethical and democratic responsibility to make legislation that reflects the needs of their constituents. That includes Black people facing life-threatening challenges because of racist, failed policies. We demand, and are fighting every day for, a radical transformation of American democracy where all Black lives are valued. We expect that our elected officials will stop pacifying and take us seriously.


The author of the secret Black Lives Matter memo, Perry, was at the time the DCCC’s “Director of Diversity and Public Engagement.” He would later become the “Regional Expansion States Director” for Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016. After Clinton lost, he joined the congressional office of then-Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) as the “Director of Member Services & Outreach.”


Crowley, his boss on Capitol Hill, infamously lost one of the highest profile primary battles in history back in 2018 to now Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Ocasio-Cortez has been an outspoken supporter of Black Lives Matter and its policy positions despite these previous warnings from Democrats of the movement’s “radical” nature, embracing the more extreme “Defund the Police” push from Black Lives Matter activists and pushing her fellow Democrats to the more extreme positions of this issue set.


At the time the document was released, in addition to Breitbart News coverage of it, it received widespread attention on the left given the controversial nature of Democrats proactively distancing themselves from the then-still-growing “radical” Black Lives Matter movement.


Julia Craven, one such writer from the left then at HuffPost, now at Slate, described how the document came to light. In particular, she wrote, the hacker Guccifer 2.0 claimed it came from the personal computer of then-House Minority Leader, now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi—something Pelosi denied at the time. What’s more, Democrats previewed what would become of their years-long strategy to dismiss controversial internal document releases as simply Russian hackers—without addressing or minimizing and avoiding the content of such documents.


Craven wrote in HuffPost.:


The document was posted online by Guccifer 2.0, a hacker who has claimed to be responsible for the Democratic National Committee email leak. Guccifer claims the document is from the personal computer of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). A number of cybersecurity firms and Democrats have attributed the leaks to Russian hackers (though Guccifer 2.0 has denied working for the Kremlin).


Pelosi’s office, in a statement to HuffPost for the August 2016 article, said the document did not come from her computer, and blamed the Russians for it leaking.


Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s staffer, told HuffPost:


This attempt by Russia to influence our election has no place in our democracy. In addition, Leader Pelosi does not have a personal computer at the DCCC so no hacked, dumped or doctored documents can be attributed to her computer.


Hammill’s statement continued by claiming that Pelosi did not support the memo’s content advising Democrats to distance themselves from the “radical” Black Lives Matter movement. Hammill said:


In regard to the memo about Black Lives Matter, Leader Pelosi does not support the content or attitude of this memo. On many occasions, Leader Pelosi has publicly supported the ideals embraced by the Black Lives Matter movement and continues to do so.


The DCCC actually distanced itself from the content of its own memo when it leaked, with then-spokeswoman Meredith Kelly issuing a statement to HuffPost stating Democrats respected the Black Lives Matter movement. Kelly said at the time:


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee highly respects and values the leadership of the Black Lives Matter movement. In less than two years, BLM has evolved from three words into a political force that is changing and waking our nation. At the DCCC, we highly encourage our candidates to not only embrace the importance of this movement, but to meet with and listen to community activists to partner social change.


But again, as recently as late 2015, the official Democrat Party recommendations for dealing with Black Lives Matter were to treat the “radical movement” with caution and avoid agreeing to any specific policy prescriptions its activists were promoting. While the top Democrats from the DCCC through Pelosi did also issue statements at the time the document leaked in 2016 expressing support for Black Lives Matter—while also blaming the Russians for the hack—their statements were not nearly as big as the embrace Democrats have greeted Black Lives Matter with in recent weeks as riots and protests have swept the nation in the wake of the death of George Floyd. Pelosi, now again the Speaker of the House, has kneeled before the movement—as have several other top Democrats—for nearly nine minutes as part of a protest representing how long now former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on the neck of Floyd.

Candace Owens exposes the biggest lie about George Floyd
By Phil Schneider - June 8, 2020 21297 0
Candace Owens simply stood in front of her phone in a non-professional selfie video and created a video that has been seen by tens of millions of people. What has she done that is so brilliant? Watch and you will see. But watch till the end, and beware that there is some course language in this video. There are no bells and whistles, no fancy graphics, just straight logic that cuts through all of the noise that fills the world today.


Candace Owens Says She Does NOT Support George Floyd
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=0xkokrL0uBw&feature=emb_logo




Candace speaks about what is so unique about the black community today in the United States. She tackles the narrative that has become fashionable among many to turn criminals into heroes after racist actions by a law enforcement official. Candace says what many are scared to say. The world is not as simple as so many people make it out to be. Candace knows how to split hairs and just focus on the heart of the matter.


So what is the real nature of the problem of violence from law enforcement officials? If you are looking for politically correct, don’t watch this. There is a gap among crime in the United States. What is the root cause of the issues? It would seem that it is not about problems in formal education. The issue is the education from the home – more specifically, the lack of education in the home among many minority communities. The reason why there is less effective parenting among minorities is because the family breakdown in America is greater in minority communities.

EXCELLENT bypass first few words of language, the rest need to be watched and shared, this is the stuff men are made of.

China Threatens ‘Non-Peaceful Measures’ to Keep Taiwan out of W.H.O.

China’s state-run Global Times newspaper warned on Wednesday that, should pressure on the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) to include Taiwan become successful, the Communist Party may be forced to solve “the Taiwan question once and for all via non-peaceful means.”
The Global Times blamed the “people of the mainland,” meaning the People’s Republic of China, for the potential violence, asserting  Chinese people are increasingly supportive of invading and colonizing Taiwan.
Taiwan is a sovereign nation off the coast of Communist China. The Communist Party considers the island a renegade province despite the lack of any history in which Taiwan was ruled by Beijing. Taiwan is currently a democracy with a long history of free and fair elections and functional state institutions like a lawmaking body, a military, and extensive education and health care infrastructures.
Despite its status as an independent country, the W.H.O. does not acknowledge its sovereignty in response to Communist Party pressure. The agency used to invite Taiwan to the World Health Assembly, its annual meeting, but stopped in 2016 after the Taiwanese people elected President Tsai Ing-wen, who has vocally challenged Beijing’s illegal attempts to control much of the South China Sea region.
Calls are currently mounting for the W.H.O. to reverse this policy and invite Taiwan to this month’s World Health Assembly in light of the fact that Taiwan has almost completely contained the ongoing Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Taiwan has not documented a domestically transmitted case of Chinese coronavirus in one month.

Is G-d TV in Israel Planning on Praying for Jews or Preying on Jews?

NOTE: As Orthodox Jews we do not write out the full name of the almighty out of awe and respect for the almighty.

Blessed to have this interview with Shannon Nuszen, a former evangelical missionary, today an Orthodox Jew who lives in the Judean Hills, the heartland of the Jewish homeland. Shannon spoke to me about the recent controversy in Israel of G-d TV getting a license to broadcast in Hebrew on Israeli TV for Jews. Shannon, a former missionary herself, has a riveting life story. She opens up about her missionary past, and the journey she took to then convert and become an Orthodox Jew.


Shannon’s insight, as a former missionary together with her in-depth knowledge of Judaism, is critical in understanding why the issue of G-d TV broadcasting in Israel is such a controversy in Isreal today. Her voice is also essential in understanding how our communities can move forward together in the best, most mutually beneficial way.




CEO of G-d TV Explains
The CEO of G-d TV explains that he only intends to bring the gospel of Jesus to the Jews of Israel so they can believe in Jesus and turn them into messianic Jews. “We don’t proselytize. We preach and teach Christian content and let God do the rest.” And… they don’t want Jews to convert. They want us to remain Jewish, keep our culture and traditions… just accept Jesus as our messiah.


What he doesn’t understand is that belief in Jesus as the messiah is 100% forbidden for Jews. In Judaism, we have one G-d and we only worship that one G-d. For Jews, Jesus was a Jew who went up to the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem during the Roman occupation of our Holyland.


He is believed by Christians to be the messsiah we do not try to convince Christians not to worship him. We just want them to respect our beliefs as well, which forbids believing that he is the messiah or worshiping him.
VIDEO
Former Evangelical missionary Shannon Nuszen explains:


“It is not uncommon to hear Christian supporters of Israel profess their love for the Jewish people, and deny that they have any intention to proselytize while in the Jewish state.


Yet, if you were to see these same Christians speaking in churches around America you’d hear something completely different. Among themselves, they are free to take their masks off.


When they’re seeking support from fellow Christians, they will share the work they are doing in the Holy Land, describe their tactics, and give many success stories about bringing Jews to belief in Jesus.”


God TV removed their original video that clearly stated their agenda to share the Gospel of Jesus with the Jewish people.


The Jewish Israel Facebook page found a copy of the public video before it was removed. Here’s the full video:

Scientists: ‘Look, One-Third Of The Human Race Has To Die For Civilization To Be Sustainable, So How Do We Want To Do This?’
Recent Video

SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
Scientists say at least 2 billion dead bodies will be burned and converted into fossil fuels.
WASHINGTON—Saying there’s no way around it at this point, a coalition of scientists announced Thursday that one-third of the world population must die to prevent wide-scale depletion of the planet’s resources—and that humankind needs to figure out immediately how it wants to go about killing off more than 2 billion members of its species.

Representing multiple fields of study, including ecology, agriculture, biology, and economics, the researchers told reporters that facts are facts: Humanity has far exceeded its sustainable population size, so either one in three humans can choose how they want to die themselves, or there can be some sort of government-mandated liquidation program—but either way, people have to start dying.

And soon, the scientists confirmed.

“I’m just going to level with you—the earth’s carrying capacity will no longer be able to keep up with population growth, and civilization will end unless large swaths of human beings are killed, so the question is: How do we want to do this?” Cambridge University ecologist Dr. Edwin Peters said. “Do we want to give everyone a number and implement a death lottery system? Incinerate the nation’s children? Kill off an entire race of people? Give everyone a shotgun and let them sort it out themselves?”

“Completely up to you,” he added, explaining he and his colleagues were “open to whatever.” “Unfortunately, we are well past the point of controlling overpopulation through education, birth control, and the empowerment of women. In fact, we should probably kill 300 million women right off the bat.”


Because the world’s population may double by the end of the century, an outcome that would lead to a considerable decrease in the availability of food, land, and water, researchers said that, bottom line, it would be helpful if a lot of people chose to die willingly, the advantage being that these volunteers could decide for themselves whether they wished to die slowly, quickly, painfully, or peacefully.

Additionally, the scientists noted that in order to stop the destruction of global environmental systems in heavily populated regions, there’s no avoiding the reality that half the world’s progeny will have to be sterilized.

“The longer we wait, the higher the number of people who will have to die, so we might as well just get it over with,” said Dr. Chelsea Klepper, head of agricultural studies at Purdue Univer­sity, and the leading proponent of a worldwide death day in which 2.3 billion people would kill themselves en masse at the exact same time. “At this point, it’s merely a question of coordination. If we can get the populations of New York City, Los Angeles, Beijing, India, Europe, and Latin America to voluntarily off themselves at 6 p.m. EST on June 1, we can kill the people that need to be killed and the planet can finally start renewing its resources.”

Thus far, humanity has been presented with a great variety of death options, among them, poisoning the world’s water supply with cadmium, picking one person per household to be killed in the privacy of his or her home, mass beheadings, and gathering 2.3 billion people all in one place and obliterating them with a single hydrogen bomb.

Sources confirmed that if a death solution is not in place by Mar. 31, the U.N., in the interest of preserving the human race, will mobilize its peacekeeping forces and gun down as many people as necessary.

“I don’t care how it happens, but a ton of Africans have to go, because by 2025, there’s no way that continent will be able to feed itself,” said Dr. Henry Craig of the Population Research Institute. “And by my estimation, three babies have to die for every septuagenarian, because their longer life expectancy means babies have the potential to release far more greenhouse gases going forward.”

While the majority of the world’s populace reportedly understands this is the only option left to save civilization, not all members of the human race are eager to die.

“I personally would rather live, but taking the long view, I can see how ensuring the survival of humanity is best,” said Norwich, CT resident and father of three Jason Atkins. “I guess if we were to do it over again, it would make sense to do a better job conserving the earth’s finite resources.”

“Hopefully, the people who remain on the planet will use the mass slaughter of their friends and loved ones as an incentive to be more responsible going forward,” he added.

10 Signs We May Be Near the End of History

10 Signs We May Be Near the End of History
OPINION (Charisma) – “Surreal” … doesn’t even begin to describe the scene. It was an evening I will never forget (though parts of it, I’d like to). It was about 8:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, and I and the group with me had spent nearly three hours in the police station. And this was not just any police station—we were in one of the most famous cities in the world.

Why might people believe that Scriptural promises/warnings about the "end of days" be close at hand? What will be some of the precursors to Jesus' return? Consider the following:

1.The growth of the Christian church. "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come" (Matt. 24:14).
2.Increase in evil. "Iniquity will abound" (Matt. 24:12). The Bible predicts that in the last days there will be much hedonism (pursuit of pleasure as the highest good) and relativism (everyone makes their own "truth" for themselves).
3.Increase in false prophets (see Matt. 24:4, 24). The apostle Peter warned against false teachers in the end times (1 Pet. 2:1; see also Jude 17-18). The Bible warns that in the end times people would forsake salvation in Christ for various types of occultism. Demonically inspired false religions would proliferate (see also Matt. 24:5; Mark 13:6).
4.The land of Israel. "And I will bring you out from the peoples and will gather you out of the countries in which you are scattered" (Ezek. 20:34a; see also 37:1-14). Though the Jewish people were without a homeland for 1,878 years, Isaiah 43:5-6 says that in the last days, "I will bring your descendants from the east, and gather you from the west."
5.Conflict in the Middle East. In the end times there will be, "Wars and rumors of wars" (Matt. 24:6-7). Ezekiel 38:1-6 predicts an invasion of Israel in the last days. Though written around 597 B.C., the prophet Ezekiel assumes that Israel is in their land when armies attack in the "latter days."6..The increasingly 6.The increasingly godless world system. The Revelation (the final book in the Bible, penned by the apostle John, 95-96 A.D.) depicts a coming era in which many facets of society will be organized around a centralized, unified entity. There will be a one-world economy (Rev. 13:16-17), a one-world government (see Rev. 13:8, 17:1-18), and a one-world religion (Rev. 13:8-12).
7.Increase of apostasy within the church. We preachers often point out problems in the world; let me also admit that there are pockets of sin embedded within the ranks of the church. One of the signs of the end times relates to a Greek word that means, "rebellion" and "revolt." It is the word apostasy, and its meaning is somewhat akin to the word "riot"—a free-for-all.
The Bible says that near the end of history many preachers will not preach the Scriptures, but will preach lies. Appealing lies and flattering lies, mind you, but words that people want to hear and not truth that will convert their soul. Having spent over 30 years of all types of church work, let me say this: We are in an era of serious theological apostasy (1 Tim. 4:1-2; 2 Tim. 4:3-4; 2 Thess. 2:3).

8.The "wiring of the planet." The book of Revelation describes several scenarios that people of previous generations found hard to believe. In fact, skeptics used to scoff at the idea that there could be a one-world money system, apart from which no one could buy or sell (Rev. 13:17). Skeptics mocked the idea that events happening in Israel could somehow be watched by the whole world at once (Rev. 11:3-12, 18:9-20). We live in a world of real-time video streaming, cyber currency, digital footprints we're all constantly creating, low-level surveillance drones ubiquitously watching, instabilities among all sectors of the world, and the rise of influential leaders calling for socialism and global unification. The events in Revelation—fantastic as they may sound—are not only possible, but likely.
The rise of Islam. The Bible predicted that the "children of Ishmael" would struggle against "the children of 9.Isaac" throughout history (Gen. 16:12, 25:18). Aggression toward the Jews by Ishmael's descendants existed for centuries. But in 622 A.D., the founding of Islam would escalate this hostility immeasurably. Past political leaders (such as Churchill) and religious leaders (such as the Reformers) believed that near the end of history there would be an uprising of "Mohammedism." Much speculation has been raised about the 200 million soldiers predicted to assemble for the battle of Armageddon (Zech. 14:1-4, Rev. 9:16-17). What worldview could summon many followers of a warrior spirit who desire the extermination of both Jews and followers of Jesus? Read The Clash of Civilizations by eminent scholar Samuel Huntington for a likely answer.
10A major outpouring of God's Holy Spirit, just prior to the rapture of the church. The Scriptures speak of a great move of God before the final judgment of history (Joel 2:28-32, Zech. 12:10-13:1). COVID-19 is prominent in the news but spreading even faster than that life-threatening virus is the life-giving message of Christ. And the ranks of believers seem to grow fastest in the regions of intense persecution. We may not see this so much in America and Europe, but in much of the rest of the world Christianity is growing exponentially. As the world battles COVID-19, it may ignite one more great revival of Christianity—and this may comprise the West's final visitation of the Holy Spirit, before Christ's return.
A word of reassurance: God makes it possible for all people to be prepared. Spending that evening in the Jerusalem police station, something occurred to me: The station was certainly in an interesting location, with the "Garden Tomb" only one street across, and the "Golden Gate" entry point into Jerusalem's "old city" just across another. I remember waiting in the lobby, noting that the main window was partially shattered as if a brick had once been thrown at it. And yet, only a few feet from that precinct office was the empty tomb of the man who once told the populace, "Blessed are the peacemakers."

But here was my realization: My group and I were frantically working to get new passports—tickets "home." Jerusalem also is the city where purchase was made for another kind of "passport." On a skull-shaped hill outside of Jerusalem, Jesus was crucified to purchase sufficient documentation into heaven for anyone who wants it. One Israeli official helped us get passports for home; yet another made it possible to get a passport for heaven.

"Is Jesus really coming back to earth? Literally? And soon?" Let me say what I tell the people repeatedly asking this in recent weeks: I absolutely believe that the answer is, "Yes." Three decades of research, writing and following world events convince me that this is so. But no one needs to be obsessively afraid regarding the end of time—if they've accepted Christ's gracious offer of forgiveness and amnesty before God.

If you've spurned God, or if you think sin and eternity are some kind of joke, then I humbly suggest that you've got more to fear than you could possibly realize. But to "whosoever will come," Jesus promised a peace beyond anything this world can offer (John 14:27). This is why this One who is coming back to earth could assure us, "Let not your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid."

7 COVID-19 Myths Busted by an M.D. Mom
I am a doctor and a mother of four. I am on the frontlines, caring for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic as a cardiac anesthesiologist in a hospital.

As both a leader of a healthcare team and as a parent, I am facing many unknowns as we navigate the rapidly-changing response to the COVID-19 virus.

I assume you, like myself, are experiencing fear, anxiety, and perhaps grief during this time. As a medical professional and a believer in Jesus Christ, I am doing my best to educate people on what we know is true about COVID-19, and to encourage those in my community during this time.

As Christians, I think we bear a certain responsibility during this pandemic. 2 Timothy 1:7 tells us that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. We are not to instill fear or incite panic, but to calmly and confidently walk in His authority, loving and comforting those He puts in our path. 

We have a responsibility to be alert and educated, to be prepared, and to be examples for our loved ones.

As the virus continues to spread, let’s do our part to make sure we’re spreading truth and love, not fear and uncertainty. Here are some facts you can use to combat the fiction you encounter about COVID-19:

Myth #1: News and social media outlets are the best sources of information on COVID-19.
Reality: Doctors and local public health officials are the best sources of information and care the most about your wellbeing.


There is a lot of information coming out every day; so much good (and bad) information is available on social media and in the news.

WATCH: Drag queen admits he’s ‘grooming’ children at story hour events
'We are trying to groom the next generation.'

LAFAYETTE, Louisiana, November 27, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Drag queens are deliberately "grooming" the next generation to accept LGBT ideology when they read to children in public libraries at drag queen “story hour” events, a U.S. drag queen admitted. 

Dylan Pontiff, a drag queen who helped organize one of these story hour events for children as young as three at the Lafayette Public Library in early October, is shown in a video making that shocking admission to the Lafayette City-Parish Council in Louisiana during a Sept. 17 meeting.

"This is going to be the grooming of the next generation. We are trying to groom the next generation," said Pontiff, who when dressed in drag goes by the name Santana Pilar Andrews.

Pontiff said that as a drag queen he has performed in shows for adults that he compared to an R-rated film. He argued that he should be able to have access to children because, as an adult, he knows how to “filter” himself and make his content PG-rated. 

“I can go in and entertain adults in a club and also entertain a group of students and young children. I’m able to do that because I’m an adult and able to filter myself,” he said.

Citizens of that community in Louisiana shook their heads in bewilderment behind Pontiff as he made these comment. 

U.S. Canada World Catholic
"Unfortunately, the Drag Queen Story Hour program is turning public libraries into platforms to advance the transgender revolution, places where pro-homosexual activists are given access to children as young as three," said John Ritchie, director of TFP Student Action, in an interview. 

"Instead of protecting the precious innocence of our children with wholesome stories, libraries are misusing our tax-dollars to harm their innocence," he said. "To attempt to dismantle and destroy the distinction between male and female is not only biologically ridiculous, but also a direct attack against God's plan for us and for the family.  Everyone who loves the family should wake up, pray and push back."

The public meeting by the Lafayette City-Parish Council in September was to consider a motion to denounce the drag queen story hour proposed for the local library on October 6 as not being age-appropriate.

The motion, derided as "hateful" and "discriminatory" by its opponents, would not have been binding on the public library. But it never got that far. The majority of the Lafayette City-Parish Council declined to vote on it, effectively scuttling the motion.  

Leslie Alexander, a member of the community, said that the library should not have approved the drag queen story hour event without consulting the public.

“This is not about tolerance or anti-bullying,” she told the Lafayette Daily Advertiser. “It is a direct and intentional effort to create gender confusion and doubt among very young children at the very time they need solid guidance and understanding. The intent is to plant a seed to make children more likely to question their sexuality or gender at a later age."

According to Ritchie, the seeds of this indoctrination of young children in public libraries was sown when marriage was legally re-defined.

"When homosexual 'marriage' was legalized back in 2015, the naive told us not to worry because the decision would never affect us," said Ritchie. "Marriage is just a word, they said. But for those who understand history, the redefinition of true marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court contained a string of ugly consequences." 

"What was unthinkable yesterday is tolerated today: Transgender drag performers are allowed to explicitly target children in public buildings," he said. 

A number of LGBT activists have highlighted in recent years that the movement’s goal is to “indoctrinate” children into accepting the normalcy of the LGBT agenda.

“I am here to tell you: All that time I said I wasn't indoctrinating anyone with my beliefs about gay and lesbian and bi and trans and queer people? That was a lie,” wrote Canadian gay activist Sason Bear Bergman, a woman who identifies as a transgender man, in a March 2015 piece titled “I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children Into My LGBTQ Agenda (And I'm Not a Bit Sorry).” Bergman holds nothing back, stating she wants to make children “like us” even if that “goes against the way you have interpreted the teachings of your religion.”

In 2011 U.S. gay activist Daniel Villarreal penned a column for Queerty.com stating that the time had come for the homosexual lobby to admit to “indoctrinating” schoolchildren to accept homosexuality.

“Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?”

“We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it. Recruiting children? You bet we are,” he added.

Homosexual activist Michael Swift wrote in 1987 in the Gay Community News that school children would become explicit targets for homosexual indoctrination. “We shall seduce them in your schools…They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us,” he wrote at the time.

CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC Empty 5 Indicators of an Evil Heart- Can an evil person really change?

5 Indicators of an Evil Heart
 
Leslie Vernick
I think one of the reasons we don’t “see” evil is because we find it so difficult to believe that evil individuals actually exist.
https://www.crosswalk.com/slideshows/5-indicators-of-an-evil-heart.html?utm_source=&utm_campaign=Daily%20Disciples%20-%20Crosswalk.com&utm_medium=email&utm_content=3054420&bcid=aca0ec8e3bea4e78ac0738d678528c86&recip=488938472%20
As Christian counselors, pastors and people helpers we often have a hard time discerning between an evil heart and an ordinary sinner who messes up, who isn’t perfect, and full of weakness and sin.

I think one of the reasons we don’t “see” evil is because we find it so difficult to believe that evil individuals actually exist. We can’t imagine someone deceiving us with no conscience, hurting others with no remorse, spinning outrageous fabrications to ruin someone’s reputation, or pretending he or she is spiritually committed yet has no fear of God before his or her eyes.

The Bible clearly tells us that among God’s people there are wolves that wear sheep’s clothing (Jeremiah 23:14; Titus 1:10; Revelations 2:2). It’s true that every human heart is inclined toward sin (Romans 3:23), and that includes evil (Genesis 8:21; James 1:4). We all miss God’ mark of moral perfection. However, most ordinary sinners do not happily indulge evil urges, nor do we feel good about having them. We feel ashamed and guilty, rightly so (Romans 7:19–21). These things are not true of the evil heart.

Here are five indicators that you may be dealing with an evil heart rather than an ordinary sinful heart. If so, it requires a radically different treatment approach.

1. Evil hearts are experts at creating confusion and contention.
They twist the facts, mislead, lie, avoid taking responsibility, deny reality, make up stories, and withhold information. (Psalms 5:8; 10:7; 58:3; 109:2–5; 140:2; Proverbs 6:13,14; 6:18,19; 12:13; 16:20; 16:27, 28; 30:14; Job 15:35; Jeremiah 18:18; Nehemiah 6:8; Micah 2:1; Matthew 12:34,35; Acts 6:11–13; 2 Peter 3:16)


2. Evil hearts are experts at fooling others with their smooth speech and flattering words.
But if you look at the fruit of their lives or the follow through of their words, you will find no real evidence of godly growth or change. It’s all smoke and mirrors. (Psalms 50:19; 52:2,3; 57:4; 59:7; 101:7; Proverbs 12:5; 26:23–26; 26:28; Job 20:12; Jeremiah 12:6; Matthew 26:59; Acts 6:11–13; Romans 16:17,18; 2 Corinthians 11:13,14; 2 Timothy 3:2–5; 3:13; Titus 1:10,16).


3. Evil hearts crave and demand control, and their highest authority is their own self-reference.
They reject feedback, real accountability, and make up their own rules to live by. They use Scripture to their own advantage but ignore and reject passages that might require self-correction and repentance. (Romans 2:8; Psalms 10; 36:1–4; 50:16–22; 54:5,6; 73:6–9; Proverbs 21:24; Jude 1:8–16).

4. Evil hearts play on the sympathies of good-willed people, often trumping the grace card.
They demand mercy but give none themselves. They demand warmth, forgiveness, and intimacy from those they have harmed with no empathy for the pain they have caused and no real intention of making amends or working hard to rebuild broken trust. (Proverbs 21:10; 1 Peter 2:16; Jude 1:4).


5. Evil hearts have no conscience, no remorse.
They do not struggle against sin or evil—they delight in it—all the while masquerading as someone of noble character. (Proverbs 2:14–15; 10:23; 12:10; 21:27,29; Isaiah 32:6; Romans 1:30; 2 Corinthians 11:13–15)

Do you know someone like this?
If you are working with someone who exhibits these characteristics, it’s important that you confront them head on. You must name evil for what it is. The longer you try to reason with them or show mercy towards them, the more you, as the Christian counselor, will become a pawn in his or her game.

1. Their horrible actions should have no serious or painful consequences.
When they say “I’m sorry,” they look to you as the pastor or Christian counselor to be their advocate for amnesty with the person he or she has harmed. They believe grace means they are immediately granted immunity from the relational fallout of their serious sin. They believe forgiveness entitles them to full reconciliation and will pressure you and their victim to comply.

The Bible warns us saying, “But when grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and do not regard the majesty of the Lord (Isaiah 26:10). 
The Bible tells us that talking doesn’t wake up evil people, but painful consequences might. Jesus didn’t wake up the Pharisee’s with his talk nor did God’s counsel impact Cain (Genesis 4). In addition, the Bible shows us that when someone is truly sorry for the pain they have caused, he or she is eager to make amends to those they have harmed by their sin (see Zacchaeus’ response when he repented of his greed in Luke 19). 

Tim Keller writes,
“If you have been the victim of a heinous crime. If you have suffered violence, and the perpetrator (or even the judge) says, ‘Sorry, can’t we just let it go?’ You would say, ‘No, that would be an injustice.’ Your refusal would rightly have nothing to do with bitterness or vengeance. If you have been badly wronged, you know that saying sorry is never enough. Something else is required—some kind of costly payment must be made to put things right.”1

As Biblical counselors let’s not collude with the evil one by turning our attention to the victim, requiring her to forgive, to forget, to trust again when there has been no evidence of inner change. Proverbs says, “Trusting in a treacherous man in time of trouble is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips” (Proverbs. 25:19). It’s foolishness.

The evil person will also try to get you to believe...


2. That if I talk like a gospel-believing Christian I am one, even if my actions don’t line up with my talk.
Remember, Satan masquerades as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13–15). He knows more true doctrine than you or I will ever know, but his heart is wicked. Why? Because although he knows the truth, he does not believe it or live it.

The Bible has some strong words for those whose actions do not match their talk (1 John 3:17,18; Jeremiah 7:8,10; James 1:22, 26). John the Baptist said it best when he admonished the religious leaders, “Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God” (Luke 3:8).

If week after week you hear the talk but there is no change in the walk, you have every reason to question someone’s relationship with God.


Can an evil person really change?
Part of our maturity as spiritual leaders is that we have been trained to discern between good and evil. Why is that so important? It’s important because evil usually pretends to be good, and without discernment we can be easily fooled (Hebrews 5:14).

When you confront evil, chances are good that the evil heart will stop counseling with you because the darkness hates the light (John 3:20) and the foolish and evil heart reject correction (Proverbs 9:7,8). But that outcome is far better than allowing the evil heart to believe you are on his or her side, or that “he’s not that bad” or “that he’s really sorry” or “that he’s changing” when, in fact, he is not.

Daniel says, “[T]he wicked will continue to be wicked” (Daniel 12:10), which begs the question, do you think an evil person can really change?

Pope Francis Endorses Essay Trashing U.S. Conservative Christians

THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.27 Sep 20195499
5:32
ROME — Pope Francis has publicly endorsed an essay that appeared in 2017 criticizing relations between Evangelicals and Catholics in the United States as an “ecumenism of hate.”
On Thursday, La Civiltà Cattolica journal released the transcript of a meeting between Pope Francis and a group of 24 Jesuits on September 5, 2019, during his recent trip to Mozambique in which the pope suggested that certain Evangelical Protestants in the United States “cannot really be defined as Christian.”

“Two important articles in Civiltà Cattolica have been published in this regard. I recommend them to you. They were written by Father Spadaro and the Argentinean Presbyterian pastor, Marcelo Figueroa. The first article spoke of the ‘ecumenism of hatred.’ The second was on the ‘theology of prosperity,’” the pontiff said.


“Reading them you will see that there are sects that cannot really be defined as Christian. They preach Christ, yes, but their message is not Christian,” the pope said. “It has nothing to do with the preaching of a Lutheran or any other serious evangelical Christianity.”

In the first essay recommended by the pope, the authors, who are both friends of Francis, slammed conservative Christians in the U.S. as ignorant, theocratic, Manichean, war-mongering fanatics.

For the “Evangelical right,” the authors proposed, the panorama of threats to the American way of life “have included modernist spirits, the black civil rights movement, the hippy movement, communism, feminist movements and so on. And now in our day there are the migrants and the Muslims.”

The authors did not hesitate to suggest that many Evangelicals are southern racists who reject climate change.

“Another interesting aspect is the relationship with creation of these religious groups that are composed mainly of whites from the deep American South,” the article stated. “There is a sort of ‘anesthetic’ with regard to ecological disasters and problems generated by climate change. They profess ‘dominionism’ and consider ecologists as people who are against the Christian faith.”

Throughout the essay, the authors criticize a string of exclusively Republican presidents as being tainted by the teachings of Evangelical Protestantism. The list of those mentioned includes Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and, of course, Donald Trump.

One of the most serious evils of American Evangelical Christians, the article stated, is “the defense of religious liberty,’” which takes the form of “a direct virtual challenge to the secularity of the state.”

The authors went on to denounce the ecumenical alliance between conservative Catholics and Evangelical Christians who align behind certain moral issues in the public square.

“Some who profess themselves to be Catholic express themselves in ways that until recently were unknown in their tradition and using tones much closer to Evangelicals. They are defined as value voters as far as attracting electoral mass support is concerned,” the article asserted.

This poisonous alliance over shared objectives “happens around such themes as abortion, same-sex marriage, religious education in schools and other matters generally considered moral or tied to values,” the essay claimed, which unite Catholics and Evangelicals in “the nostalgic dream of a theocratic type of state.”

At the time of its publication, the article triggered an avalanche of critical responses denouncing the ignorance and political ill-will underlying the essay.

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, for instance, wrote a sharp criticism of the essay, saying that the authors were guilty of “dumbing down and inadequately presenting the nature of Catholic/evangelical cooperation on religious freedom and other key issues.”

“Dismissing today’s attacks on religious liberty as a ‘narrative of fear,’” as the La Civiltà Cattolica article does, Chaput said, “sounds willfully ignorant.”

In his critique of the article, Dr. Samuel Gregg called the article “disturbing,” while lamenting the tacit anti-Americanism and “distinctly amateur grasp of American religious history.”

As Dr. Gregg noted, to describe “Marxism-Leninism, Islamist jihadism, or National Socialism” as evil is not evidence of a Manichaean worldview. “It is simply recognition that some ideas are indeed wicked and lead to many people, even nations, engaging in gravely evil acts.”

Moreover, Gregg wrote, if one looks at statements put together by various scholars and intellectuals involved in movements such as Evangelicals and Catholics Together, “they contain not a shred of theocratic aspiration.”

“The ecumenical discussion between those involved in these endeavors have led over time to genuine fruit in terms of clarification of points in common, removing misconceptions, identifying real doctrinal road-blocks, and identifying areas where practical work to promote the common good can be pursued together,” Gregg observed.

It is not a theocratic nostalgia that leads Evangelical and Catholic Christians in America to make the argument that “unborn human beings are entitled to the same protections from the unjust use of lethal force as any other human being, or that religious liberty is more than just freedom of worship, or that parents are entitled to insist that their children not be subjected to the nonsense of ‘gender theory’ at school,” Gregg added.

The published criticisms of the original article by serious scholars, both Christian and secular, ended up being so numerous they could fill a book. The article was eventually dismissed as simply an embarrassing attempt at political propaganda by overly zealous Italian and Argentinian clerics who were completely out of their depth.

Which could lead one to wonder what Pope Francis could possibly be thinking when he dredges up this ill-begotten essay out of the swamp of oblivion to recommend it as a useful aid for understanding America’s complex religious landscape.

(DT) – Shoppers at Amazon-owned Whole Foods may soon be waving their hands about at the checkout in order to pay for their items. The company is currently testing scanning technology that can identify a human hand, sources claiming to have knowledge of the matter told the New York Post this week. The system, code-named “Orville,” would match hand-related data with customer accounts, automatically deducting the cost of purchases as the shopper waves their five-fingered body part over the scanning machine.

Man of Science, Man of Faith

Man of Science, Man of Faith
Religious inquiry and scientific investigation can complement each other.
https://www.aish.com/ci/sam/48957071.html?s=rab
Have you heard about the religious fundamentalist who wanted to teach physics at Cambridge? This would-be instructor wasn't simply a Christian; he was so preoccupied with biblical prophecy that he wrote a book titled Observations on the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John. Based on his reading of Daniel, in fact, he forecast the date of the Apocalypse: no earlier than 2060. He also calculated the year the world was created. When Genesis 1:1 says "In the beginning," he determined, it means 3988 BC.


Not many modern universities are prepared to employ a science professor who espouses not merely "intelligent design" but out-and-out divine creation. This applicant's writings on astronomy, for example, include these thoughts on the solar system: "This most beautiful system of sun, planets, and comets could only proceed from the counsel and domination of an intelligent and powerful Being . . . He governs all things, and knows all things that are or can be done."


Hire somebody with such views to teach physics? At a Baptist junior college deep in the Bible Belt, maybe, but the faculty would erupt if you tried it just about anywhere else. Many of them would echo Oxford's Richard Dawkins, the prominent evolutionary biologist, who writes in The God Delusion that he is "hostile to fundamentalist religion because it actively debauches the scientific enterprise. . . . It subverts science and saps the intellect."


Equally blunt is Sam Harris, a PhD candidate in neuroscience and another unsparing foe of religion. "The conflict between religion and science is inherent and (very nearly) zero-sum," he writes in an essay whose title -- "Science Must Destroy Religion" -- makes clear the antipathy with which many modern scientists regard religious faith. "The success of science often comes at the expense of religious dogma; the maintenance of religious dogma always comes at the expense of science."


Less elegant but more influential, the National Science Education Standards issued by the National Academy of Sciences in 1995 classified religion with "myths," "mystical inspiration," and "superstition" -- all of them quite incompatible with scientific study. Michael Dini, a biologist at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, made headlines in 2003 over his policy of denying letters of recommendation for any graduate student who could not "truthfully and forthrightly affirm a scientific answer" to the question of mankind's origin. Science and religion, he said in an interview at the time, "shouldn't overlap."


There were truths to be found in both of the "books" authored by God, the Book of Scripture and the Book of Nature.
But such considerations didn't keep Cambridge from hiring the theology- and Bible-drenched individual described above. Indeed, it named him to the prestigious Lucasian Chair of Mathematics -- in 1668. And a good thing too, since Isaac Newton -- notwithstanding his religious fervor and intense interest in Biblical interpretation -- went on to become the most renowned scientist of his age, and arguably the most influential in history.


Newton's consuming interest in theology, eschatology, and the secrets of the Bible is the subject of a new exhibit at Hebrew University in Jerusalem (online at jnul.huji.ac.il/dl/mss/Newton). His vast religious output -- an estimated 3 million words -- ranged from the dimensions of Solomon's Temple to a method of reckoning the date of Easter to the elucidation of Biblical symbols. "Newton was one of the last great Renaissance men," the curators observe, "a thinker who worked in mathematics, physics, optics, alchemy, history, theology, and the interpretation of prophecy and saw connections between them all." The 21st-century prejudice that religion invariably "subverts science" is refuted by the extraordinary figure who managed to discover the composition of light, deduce the laws of motion, invent calculus, compute the speed of sound, and define universal gravitation, all while believing deeply in the "domination of an intelligent and powerful Being." Far from subverting his scientific integrity, the exhibition notes, "Newton's piety served as one of his inspirations to study nature and what we today call science."


For Newton, it was axiomatic that religious inquiry and scientific investigation complemented each other. There were truths to be found in both of the "books" authored by God, the Book of Scripture and the Book of Nature -- or as Francis Bacon called them, the "book of God's word" and the "book of God's works." To study the world empirically did not mean abandoning religious faith. On the contrary: The more deeply the workings of Creation were understood, the closer one might come to the Creator. In the language of the 19th Psalm, "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork."



To be sure, religious dogma can be a blindfold, blocking truths from those who refuse to see them. Scientific dogma can have the same effect. Neither faith nor reason can answer every question. As Newton knew, the surest path to understanding is the one that has room for both.

CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC Empty What Is a Cult? The 6 Telltale Signs to Look For

Post  Admin on Thu 22 Aug 2019, 9:45 am

[url=https://www.crosswalk.com/church/pastors-or-leadership/ask-roger/what-is-a-cult-the-6-telltale-signs-to-look-for.html?utm_source=&utm_campaign=Daily Disciples -]What Is a Cult? The 6 Telltale Signs to Look For[/url]


What Is a Cult? The 6 Telltale Signs to Look For
Dr. Roger Barrier
Preach It, Teach It
2018 15 Aug


 What Is a Cult? The 6 Telltale Signs to Look For
"I know that after my departure, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them" (Acts 20:29-30).


Paul is speaking to the early church—and to us—about cults. They will and have come. They existed then and now. If we’re not extremely careful, they can draw us away from the truth.


One quick note before we begin. The term “cult,” as expressed in the English language, can be used in both secular and religious settings. For example, “the singer's cult of fans” or “the film has a cult following.”


Today, we will work with religious cults, defined by Dictionary.com as “great veneration of a person, ideal, or thing, especially as manifested by a body of admirers; a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist, with members often living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader.”


The following characteristics will help us define and recognize the nature of a cult. 


First, the most dastardly, insidious mark of a cult is that it ignores or distorts the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
To one degree or another, all cults deny the deity of Jesus Christ. Their teachings and principles will eventually leave a person unsaved, without a relationship with Jesus Christ, and spending eternity in hell.




The Bible teaches that faith in Christ, plus nothing else, equals salvation. Ephesians 2:8-9 reads, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”


The three most obvious cults today are Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Watchtower Society, and Mormons. All three put good works in the place of “nothing else," suggesting the redeeming work of Jesus is not sufficient by itself. Faith plus anything else is heresy.


This characteristic of cults is so significant that Paul literally pronounces a curse as he shares his displeasure and outright anger at these false prophets who minimize, distort, or change the gospel:


“I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; ... But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:6-9).


Please note that the word Paul used for “curse” is the strongest word for cursing in the Greek language. Technically, it dooms the one who is cursed to the darkest, deepest, most horrible fate imaginable.


Second, most cults are led by a dynamic, charismatic leader who eventually controls and manipulates his or her followers.
Jim Jones was a psychopathic, manipulative, controlling, and insidious leader. He founded the People’s Temple in Indiana during the 1950s. Jim began moving to different cities, gaining followers at each one. In the mid-1970s, he relocated all of his followers to Guyana on the northwest coast of South America.


Then in 1978, rumors began to circulate, alleging that human rights abuses were occurring in the People’s Temple. United States Congressman Leo Ryan went to investigate. Ryan and several defectors were murdered by gunfire while boarding a return flight home. Shortly thereafter Jones led all of his 918 followers—including 304 children—to commit suicide by drinking Kool-Aid spiked with cyanide.




Jones was a brash overlord who enslaved his followers… ultimately leading to their deaths.


In contrast, true Christian leaders are humble. Jesus described himself as "meek and lowly in heart" (Matthew 11:29).


Paul mentored Timothy as a pastor and church leader in two of his letters. In 1 Timothy 3:1-4, Paul described a godly leader: 


“Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect.”


Third, surprisingly, most cult leaders grew up in a Christian environment.
Sun Myung Moon, founder of the Unification Church, grew up in a Presbyterian home. Jim Jones attended a Nazarene church; later he pastored a Disciples of Christ congregation before founding the People’s Temple. Moses David (David Berg), founder of the Children of God, is the son of evangelical parents and served as a minister in a Christian and Missionary Alliance church. Mary Baker Patterson Glover Eddy, founder of the Christian Scientists, and Charles Taze Russell, founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses, were both raised in Christian homes and churches.


Obviously, there are many reasons why cult leaders turn from Christianity. I would guess that some imagined hearing a voice from God telling them that they were divinely inspired to begin something new. Some were deceived by demonic promptings. Others were arrogant con men and con women who knew just enough Bible to get everything confused. Many were arrogant, grandiose people whose pride led them to destruction.


Fourth, cult leaders tend to ignore, confuse, add to, and/or demean the Bible’s teachings.
It is easy to trap Christians when cultists speak Christian language. This is why churches need to teach the Bible early and definitively. This is why new Christians need mentors.


Occasionally, the media draws our attention to a leader who counts up biblical numbers and is convinced that he or she knows the date of Christ’s Second Coming.




I recall one such group in southern Arizona that I identified as a “Second Coming Cult.” This particular cult leader went to the Bible, added up some dates, and declared that he had figured out the exact time and day of our Lord’s return (never mind Matthew 24:36).


Cults like his spring up occasionally. He convinced his followers to sell all their possessions because they would no longer need them after Christ’s return.


Jesus didn’t return on his time. The cult dissipated quickly. Most had nothing to show for it except some clothes in a closet.           


Like all cult leaders, this man demeaned the truth of the Scriptures. Jesus said that only God the Father knows the day and time of his return.


Fifth, cults use devious methods to trap, deceive, and control their followers.
In an article entitled "The Power Abusers," Ronald Enroth demonstrates some of the tools used by cults to control their members:


Behavior Control: An individual’s associations, living arrangements, food, clothing, sleeping habits, finances, etc., are strictly controlled
Information Control: Cult leaders deliberately withhold or distort information, lie, propagandize, and limit access to other sources of information
Thought Control: Cult leaders use loaded words and language, discourage critical thinking, bar any speech critical of cult leaders or policies, and teach an “us vs. everyone else” doctrine
Emotional Control: Leaders manipulate their followers via fear (including the fear of losing salvation, and the fear of being shunned, etc.)
Personally, I know of one freshman college student who fell into a cult led by a man named Brother David. She had been to church all of her life but became entrapped by both his teachings and personal guidance.


She writes: “Brother David (not his real name) pastored a wildly demonstrative congregation, and people prophesied over me twice a week. I didn't need to listen to God anymore; my fellow followers told me exactly what to do (and what not to do). I had this gnawing feeling growing deep inside that God was mad at me all of the time. I felt that I had disappointed Jesus if I were not fasting and reading the Bible constantly. I withdrew from friends and family, dismissing them as carnal and deceived.”




Fasting at his suggestion, she reached 89 pounds before her parents and boyfriend succeeded in wrenching her free. Unfortunately, she was kind enough to tell Brother David why she was leaving. He told her that she could go to hell.




Others are looking for a new or deeper spiritual experience. They listen to an attractive personality and admire their reputation for superior godliness.


Still, others are attracted to authoritarian movements that offer black and white, clear-cut answers or systematic approaches to life's problems.


Some crave a message that seems to support their own beliefs and desires.


Many lived through a church split and were hurt and disillusioned. They swore never to return. Then, they were exposed to a cult that seemed fresh and new. They were ripe for conversion.


Paul calls out all of these motives in 2 Timothy 4:3-4:


“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to myths.”


One other group is especially vulnerable: young Christians who get confused about the truth.


“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming” (Ephesians 4:14).


How to Avoid being Seduced by Cult Leaders and Teachings 
1. Study Scripture in order to know true doctrine and biblical teaching.


“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).


2. Don't forget or ignore what you've already learned.


“Peter, knowing that his days were numbered, reminded his readers of those truths which they had already learned.” (2 Peter 1:12-13)




3. Develop a consistent and committed walk with Christ. Grow up!


“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him.” (Colossians 2:6)


4. Consciously pray and practice the filling of the Holy Spirit.


"Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18).


5. Before leaving the house in the morning, put on the spiritual armor of Ephesians 6:10-18.


“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes... the belt of truth... the breastplate of righteousness... the shoes out the gospel of peace... the shield of faith… the helmet of salvation... the sword of the Spirit... and pray in the spirit...”


6. Use James 4:7 as needed for spiritual warfare.


“Submit to God; resist the devil; and he will flee from you.”


How to Help Deprogram Someone Out of a Cult  
-We must recognize the power of prayer and our dependence on the Holy Spirit for healing.


-Since damage was done in a relational context, healing must also take place in a healthy, safe relationship.


-Use the Scriptures and take time to help the individual identify their cult’s particular biblical distortions in a safe setting.


-Avoid criticizing, confrontation and arguing.


-As often as possible, give them an infusion of truth about who God is and how He sees us.


-As they emerge to freedom, connect them with a healthy church.

CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC Empty ‘The Bible Tells Us’ This Will Happen

Priscilla Shirer on Christian Leaders Abandoning Faith: ‘The Bible Tells Us’ This Will Happen
By Tré Goins-Phillips Editor
https://www.faithwire.com/2019/08/16/priscilla-shirer-on-christian-leaders-abandoning-faith-the-bible-tells-us-this-will-happen/?fbclid=IwAR2fA7eenTMGUie1F4ZVo2JGW10ceWOpDL-qvoNK2szSGxXgYxeTaF1_Xco
August 16, 2019
Some of our Christian leaders are turning from their faith, and although it’s sad, it’s not something that should leave us blindsided, according to Priscilla Shirer.
During an interview with Faithwire on Friday, the author, preacher, and actor said the Bible warns believers “that days will come when even our leaders will fall away, and I think we’re seeing the inklings of those times even now.” 
In Matthew 24:10-11, Jesus told his followers: “Many will turn away from me and betray me and hate each other. And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.”
“Now is the time”
“Now is the time more than ever to fortify our spiritual backbone, to know what we believe, to be in the Word of God so that we can stand firm on truth that we actually know — not that we’ve just heard through the grapevine,” Shirer said, adding we need to be able to “defend our faith” in moments like these.
The comments from the star of the forthcoming movie “Overcomer” come after author Joshua Harris, known for his popular book “I Kissed Dating Goodbye,” which he has since denounced, said he is “not a Christian” anymore. Former Hillsong worship leader Marty Sampson has similarly distanced himself from Christianity, saying he is “genuinely losing” his faith.
‘We’ve Got to Remain True’ to God’s Word: Priscilla Shirer on Reaching Younger Generations for Christ
Shirer went on to explain how important it is for Christians to pass on their faith traditions to their children and grandchildren. She also urged believers to shy away from “watering down the Gospel and the name of Jesus Christ.”
“My boldness in faith today,” she said, “will make an incredible difference to the reality that [my children and grandchildren] will live in tomorrow.”
“We are so quick to glorify people”
The 44-year-old Bible teacher cautioned against the human propensity “to glorify people and to put them up on pedestals that many of them never even asked to be on.”
“So when they fall, the fall is hard and rough on everybody,” Shirer continued. “No one is perfect except our Lord and we’ve got to take the burden off of people’s shoulders to be what only Jesus can be for us and only what the Holy Spirit can be for us.”
In fact, for many who have been hurt by the Christian community, the best way to welcome them back into the church is by separating the Gospel from the broken and imperfect people who preach it. The Christian message, Shirer said, is “not about fallen human beings.”
Interview: ‘This Is Us’ Star Chrissy Metz Opens Up About Personal Reason She Believes in Miracles
“It’s about our Savior and the church is designed to point you to him — not to people who are speaking about him,” she added.
Shirer is starring in the upcoming movie “Overcomer,” a new project from the Christian filmmaking duo Alex and Stephen Kendrick. The Affirm Films movie, which hits theaters Aug. 23, chronicles the difficult experiences of several small-town families whose lives are upended by a series of unexpected events.

Iowa Farmer Confronts Warren on Green New Deal’s Intent to Eliminate Cows
2,804
The Farmer, Warren, and the CowsGOP War Room
HANNAH BLEAU8 Aug 20192027
3:04
An Iowa farmer confronted Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) over her support of the Green New Deal, explaining that he takes issue with the plan’s intent to eliminate cows, to which Warren replied with a hesitant, “Eh.”
The GOP War Room published a video Thursday, showing an Iowa farmer having a discussion with the presidential hopeful and explaining why he disagrees with the Green New Deal’s outline, which laments the existence of cows.

“You know, the Green New Deal says we need to get rid of cows,” he said, with Warren letting out an audible, “Eh.”

He continued:

I don’t agree with that because well-managed grassland where you rotationally graze – you know all these paddocks like that system there has about eight different paddocks – you’re actually going to use more CO2 and sequester more carbon because of the regrowth all the time, and yet you know that’s a permanent pasture.

Warren did not say anything during the farmer’s explanation, nodding her head and adding an occasional “uh-huh.” It seems the farmer was focusing on cows from a land management standpoint, while the Green New Deal’s outline specifically takes aim at the biological reality of cow flatulence and the impact that has on the environment.

A Q&A portion of the Green New Deal’s outline states:

We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get to net-zero.

“My point is we have become so ignorant of the basic principles of biology in food production that we have said – we answer them all through technology instead of letting mother earth and having respect,” the farmer added:

The video follows the rollout of Warren’s plan to invest in rural America, which involves a “’full out effort’ to decarbonize agriculture,” according to Politico.

As Politico reported:

Warren, who endorses the Green New Deal’s goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2030, calls for a “full out effort” to decarbonize agriculture. She would pour $15 billion each year into a USDA program that pays farmers to adopt conservation practices.

In order to create more opportunities for small, beginning and minority farmers, Warren proposed expanding access to credit, as well as creating a $1 billion “Farm to People” program so federally funded institutions like military bases and hospitals can source food from local producers.

The senator did not detail how she would pay for these initiatives, however.

Given Warren’s hesitancy to the farmer’s remark – on the Green New Deal’s desire to eliminate cows – it remains unclear if the Massachusetts lawmaker truly believes that the U.S. needs to reduce the number of cows in order to address what the left claims is the impending climate crisis.

Washington’s North Korea Dilemma
By Dr. Alon Levkowitz August 5, 2019
https://besacenter.org/perspectives-papers/north-korea-dilemma/
President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, photo via US Department of Defense

BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 1,245, August 5, 2019

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The June 30, 2019 meeting between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un at Panmunjom, the border between North and South Korea, reignited negotiations between North Korea and the US on the Singapore agreement. The gap between Washington and Pyongyang remains huge. The negotiation team will have to find new ways to weave together North Korea’s Yongbyon offer and Washington’s demand for full disarmament.

The Singapore Summit on June 12, 2018 between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un led to high expectations that tensions might be eased in the Korean Peninsula. President Moon Jae-in and Xi Jinping supported the summit and praised both leaders for meeting for the first time and working to find way to resolve the conflict after seven decades. The agreement the leaders signed in Singapore was written in general terms, and both sides continued to negotiate ways to implement what had been agreed upon therein.

The Hanoi Summit on February 27-28, 2019 was the meeting at which the leaders were expected to discuss specifics on implementing the Singapore agreement. The Hanoi summit failed to achieve its goal. While Pyongyang expected Washington to start to lift the sanctions once it began partial disarmament, Washington insisted that the sanctions would not be lifted until North Korea was fully disarmed.

The failure of the summit, notwithstanding President Trump’s statement that it did not fail, left both states with a huge expectation gap. Trump used his visit to South Korea as a venue to meet again with Kim in order to find ways to bridge that gap. On June 30, 2019, Trump met with Kim at the DMZ, accompanied with President Moon. The bilateral dialogue between Trump and Kim led to the renewal of negotiations between the American and North Korean delegations on the implementation of the Singapore agreement.

The Panmunjom meeting puts Washington in a dilemma.

The US has stated that it demands that North Korea fully disarm its nuclear, missile, and other non-conventional capabilities via a disarmament process that is verifiable and irreversible. Once Pyongyang begins (or, according to the more hawkish voices at the White House, at the end of) the process, Washington will consider lifting the sanctions.

Pyongyang is not willing to accept this demand. Kim Jong-un stated at the beginning of the Hanoi summit that Pyongyang has done its part, and Washington should now lift the sanctions. Pyongyang is not interested in waiting until disarmament is complete for the lifting of the sanctions.

Kim Jong-un has offered to dismantle the Yongbyon nuclear complex via a process that would include a verifying mechanism. In return, Pyongyang expects Washington to lift the sanctions. Later, Washington is expected to end the war with North Korea and improve relations between the two states.

Pyongyang’s offer looks like a viable solution. However, in focusing solely on the Pyongyang complex, Washington would be allowing North Korea to keep its nuclear arsenal until negotiations reach the point that nuclear disarmament is discussed. Accepting Kim Jong-un’s offer would allow Washington to start the disarmament process, but, it would not fully disarm North Korea and would allow it to hold onto its nuclear bombs for a longer period.

The US negotiation team will have to find a creative way to allow Washington to accept North Korea’s Yongbyon offer. The agreement should include a road map that includes the dismantling of its other nuclear and non-conventional capabilities. The roadmap should include carrots and sticks that would prevent the reversal of this process.

NASA Discovers Strange New Magnetic Phenomenon In Earth's Turbulent Outer Atmosphere

TECH & SCIENCE
EARTH MAGNETIC FIELD
NEW ZEALAND
An ancient tree that contains a record of a reversal of Earth's magnetic field has been discovered in New Zealand. The tree—an Agathis australis, better known as its Māori name kauri—was found in Ngawha, on New Zealand's North Island, during excavation work for the expansion of a geothermal power plant, stuff.nz reports.


The tree, which had been buried in 26 feet of soil, measures eight feet in diameter and 65 feet in length. Carbon dating revealed it lived for 1,500 years, between 41,000 and 42,500 years ago.


"There's nothing like this anywhere in the world," Alan Hogg, from New Zealand's University of Waikato, told the website. "This Ngāwhā kauri is unique."


The lifespan of the kauri tree covers a point in Earth's history when the magnetic field almost reversed. At this time, the magnetic north and south went on an excursion but did not quite complete a full reversal.


Earth's magnetic field is thought to be generated by the iron in the planet's core. As it moves around, it produces electric currents that extend far into space. The magnetic field acts as a barrier, protecting Earth from the solar wind. This is a stream of charged particles from the Sun that could strip away the ozone layer if it were to impact the atmosphere.


When the magnetic field reverses—or attempts to—it gets weaker, leading to more radiation from the Sun getting through. Previously, scientists have linked extinction events to magnetic field reversals.


The newly discovered kauri tree's rings contain a complete record of a near-reversal—the first time a tree that lived during the entire event has ever been found. "It's the time it takes for this movement to occur that is the critical thing...We will map these changes much more accurately using the tree rings," Hogg told stuff.nz.

Samples of the tree are now being analyzed by scientists, led by Chris Turney from the University of New South Wales—an expert in paleoclimatology and climate change. Understanding what happened to the tree during the event could provide an insight into what we should expect the next time it happens. "We will have increased cosmic radiation. It will take out satellites and it might take out other communication infrastructure," Hogg said.


Turney told Newsweek: "The precious thing is this huge, lonely tree grew for some 1700 years across a remarkable period in our planet's history when the Earth's magnetic field flipped some 42,000 years ago, a period known as the Laschamp Excursion. Funded by the Australian Research Council we're undertaking detailed measurements of the radioactive form of carbon through the tree rings."


Magnetic field reversals happen at random intervals, although in the last 20 millions years it appears to have settled into a pattern, happening once every 200,000 to 300,000 years, NASA says. The last full reversal took place around 780,000 years ago.


Scientists recently announced the magnetic north pole had moved unexpectedly. Instead of tracking steadily from the Canadian Arctic towards Siberia, it sped up so much that researchers had to update the World Magnetic Model (WMM)—a representation of Earth's magnetic field that is used by GPS systems worldwide.


"Because the Earth's magentic field has a major effect on how much radiocarbon carbon is formed in the upper atmosphere, these precious analyses will allow us to investigate the magnitude and rate of change when the magnetic field reversed during the Laschamp; something not possible before and of great interest given recent changes in the Earth's magnetic field," Turney said.

In 1954, Evangelist A.A. Allen Was Given A Vision Of America Being Destroyed By Missiles Out Of The Ocean
By Michael T. Snyder -  May 21, 2019

On July 4th, 1954 evangelist A.A. Allen had an extraordinary vision which we are still talking about to this day.  The vision is quite long, but near the end of the vision he was shown that one day America would be destroyed by missiles coming out of the ocean.  It is important to note that the very first submarine capable of carrying nuclear missiles was not even built until 1959.  So what A.A. Allen saw had not even been invented yet when he saw it. The following is the full text of his vision…

(Harvest NETwork) As I stood atop the Empire State Building, I could see the Statue of Liberty, illuminating the gateway to the new world.  Here, spread before me like an animated map, is an area sixty or eighty miles in diameter. I was amazed that the Spirit of the Lord should so move me, there atop the Empire State Building.  Why should I feel such a surge of His Spirit and power there?

Suddenly I heard the voice of the Lord.  It was as clear and as distinct as a voice could be. It seemed to come from the very midst of the giant telescope.  But when I looked at the telescope, I knew it hadn’t come from there, but directly from heaven.  The voice said, “The eyes of the lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him.  Herein you have done foolishly. Therefore, from henceforth, you shall have wars.”

Immediately when I heard the voice of God, I knew this was a quotation of Scripture.  But never before had a thing come to me so forcibly by the power of the Spirit. The ticking of the telescope stopped. The man before me had used up his dimes worth.  As he stepped away I knew that I was next.  As I stepped to the telescope and dropped in my dime, immediately the ticking started again.  This ticking was an automatic clock which would allow me to use the telescope for a definitely limited time only.

As I swung the telescope to the North, suddenly the Spirit of God came upon me in a way that I had never thought of before.  Seemingly in the spirit I was entirely caught away.  I knew that the telescope itself had nothing to do with the distance which I was suddenly enabled to see, for I seemed to see things far beyond the range of the telescope, even on a bright clear day.  It was simply that God had chosen this time to reveal these things to me, for as I looked through the telescope, it was not Manhattan Island that I saw, but a far larger view. That morning, much of the view was impaired by fog. But suddenly as the Spirit of the Lord came upon me the fog seemed to clear, until it seemed that I could see for thousands of miles.

But that which I was looking upon was not Manhattan island, it was all of the North American Continent spread out before me as a map is spread upon a table, it was not the East River and the Hudson River that I saw on either side, but the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans.And instead of the Statue of Liberty standing there in the bay on her small island I saw her standing far out in the Gulf of Mexico. She was between me and the United States.

I suddenly realized that the telescope had nothing to do with what I was seeing, but that it was a vision coming directly from God. And to prove this to myself I took my eyes away from the telescope, so that I was no longer looking through the lens, but the same scene remained before me.

There, clear and distinct, lay all the North American Continent, with all it’s great cities. To the North lay the Great Lakes. Far to the Northeast was New York City. I could see Seattle and Portland far to the Northwest. Down the West Coast, there were San Francisco and Los Angeles. Closer in the foreground, there lay New Orleans, at the center of the Gulf Coast area. I could see the great towering ranges of the Rocky Mountains, and trace with my eye the Continental Divide. All this and more, I could see spread out before me as a great map upon a table.

And as l looked, suddenly from the sky I saw a giant hand reach down. That gigantic hand was reaching out toward the Statue of Liberty. In a moment her gleaming torch was torn from her hand, and in it instead was placed a cup. And I saw protruding from that great cup, a giant sword, shining as if a great light had been turned upon its glistening edge. Never before had I seen such a sharp, glistening, dangerous sword. lt seemed to threaten all the world. As the great cup was placed in the hand of the Statue of Liberty, I heard these words, “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Drink ye and be drunken, spue and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send”  As I heard these words, I recognized them as a quotation from Jeremiah 25:7.

I was amazed to hear the Statue of Liberty speak out in reply, “I WILL NOT DRINK!” Then as the voice of the thunder, I heard again the voice of the Lord, saying, “Thus saith the Lord of Hosts, YE SHALL CERTAINLY DRINK.” (Jer.25:28)  Then suddenly the giant hand forced the cup to the lips of the Statue of Liberty, and she became powerless to defend herself.  The mighty hand of God forced her to drink every drop from the cup.  As she drank the bitter dregs, these were the words that I heard, “Should you be utterly unpunished?  You shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of Hosts.” (Jer.25:29)  When the cup was withdrawn from the lips of the Statue of Liberty, I noticed the sword was missing from the cup, which could mean but one thing.  THE CONTENTS OF THE CUP HAD BEEN COMPLETELY CONSUMED! I knew that the sword merely typified war, death, and destruction, which is no doubt on the way.

Then as one drunken on too much wine, I saw the Statue of Liberty become unsteady on her feet and begin to stagger, and to lose her balance.  I saw her splashing in the Gulf, trying to regain her balance.  I saw her stagger again and again, and fall to her knees. As I saw  her desperate attempts to regain her balance, and rise to her feet again, my heart was moved as never before with compassion for her struggles. But as she staggered there in the gulf, once again I heard these words, “Ye shall drink and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more because of the sword that I shall send among you.”

As I watched, I wondered if the Statue of Liberty would ever be able to regain her feet – if she would ever stand again.  And as I watched, it seemed that with all her power she struggled to rise, and finally staggered to her feet again, and stood there swaying drunkenly.  I felt sure that at any moment she would fall again – possibly never to rise. I seemed overwhelmed with a desire to reach out my hand to keep her head above water, for I knew that if she ever fell again she would drown there in the Gulf.

“Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.” Psalms 91:5,6.

Then as I watched, another amazing thing was taking place.  Far to the Northwest, just out over Alaska, a huge, black cloud was arising. As it rose, it was as black as night.  It seemed to be in the shape of a man’s head.  As it continued to arise, I observed two light spots in the black cloud.  It rose further, and a gaping hole appeared.  I could see that the black cloud was taking the shape of a skull, for now the huge, white, gaping mouth was plainly visible.  Finally the head was complete.  Then the shoulders began to appear and on either side long, black arms. It seemed that what I saw was the entire North American Continent, spread out like a map upon a table with this terrible skeleton-formed cloud arising from behind the table.  It rose steadily until the form was visible down to the waist.  At the waist, the skeleton seemed to bend towards the United States, stretching forth a hand toward the East and one toward the West – one toward New York and one toward Seattle. As the awful form stretched forward,  I could see that the entire attention seemed to be focused upon the U.S., overlooking Canada at least for the time being.  As I saw the horrible black cloud in the form of a skeleton bending towards America, bending from the waist over, reaching down toward Chicago and out towards both coasts, I knew it’s one interest was to destroy the multitudes.

As I watched in horror, the great black cloud stopped just above the great lakes region, and turned it’s face towards New York City. Then out of the horrible, great gaping mouth began to appear wisps of white vapor which looked like smoke, as a cigarette smoker would blow puffs of smoke from his mouth.  These whitish vapors were being blown toward New York City.  The smoke began to spread, until it had covered all the eastern part of the United States.

Then the skeleton turned to the West, and out of the horrible mouth and nostrils came another great puff of white smoke.   This time it was blown in the direction of the West Coast.  In a few moments time,the entire West Coast and L.A. area was covered with it’s vapors

Then towards the center came  a third great puff.  As I watched, St. Louis and Kansas City were enveloped in its white vapors.  Then on it came towards New Orleans.  Then on they swept until they reached the Statue of Liberty where she stood staggering drunkenly in The blue waters of The Gulf.  As the white vapors began to spread around The head of the statue, she took in but one gasping breath, and then began to cough as though to rid her lungs of the horrible vapors she had inhaled.  One could readily discern by the coughing that those white vapors had seared her lungs.

What were these white vapors?  Could they signify bacteriological warfare or nerve gas that could destroy multitudes of people in a few moments time? Then I heard the voice of God, as He spoke again: “Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof,.  And it shall be, as with the people. so with The priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the buyer, so with the seller, as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.  The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled : for The Lord has spoken this word.  The earth mourneth and fadeth away,The world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish . The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.  Therefore has the curse devoured the earth and they that dwell therein are desolate; therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few men are left.” (Isa.24:1-6)

As I watched, the coughing grew worse.  It sounded like a person was about to cough out his lungs.  The Statue was moaning and groaning. She was in mortal agony.  The pain must have been terrific, as again and again, she tried to clear her lungs of those horrible white vapors. I watched her there in the Gulf, as she staggered, clutching her lungs and her breast with her hands. Then she fell to her knees. In a moment, she gave one final cough, and made a last desperateeffort to rise from her knees, and then fell face forward into the waters of The Gulf and lay still as death.  Tears ran down my face as I realized that she was dead!  Only The lapping of The waves, splashing over her body, which was partly under the water, and partly out of water, broke the silence.

“A fire devoureth before them, and behind them a flame burneth; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them, a desolate wilderness.” Joel 2:3

Suddenly the silence was shattered by the screaming of sirens. The sirens seemed to scream, “RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!” Never before had I heard such shrill, screaming sirens. They seemed to be everywhere – to the North, South, the East and the West.  There seemed to be multitudes of sirens.  And as I looked, I saw people everywhere running.  But it seemed none of them ran more than a few paces, and then they fell.  And even as I had seen the Statue struggling to regain her poise and balance, and finally falling to die on her face, I now saw millions of people falling in the streets, on the sidewalks, struggling.  I heard their screams for mercy and help. I heard their horrible coughing as though their lungs had been seared with fire.  I heard the moanings and groanings of the doomed and the dying.  As I watched, a few finally reached shelters, and above the moaning and groanings, I heard these words: “A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth for the Lord has a controversy with the nations.  He will plead with all flesh; He will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord. Behold evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of The earth. And The slain of the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even onto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented neither gathered nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground. (Jer. 25:31-33)

Then suddenly I saw from the Atlantic and from the Pacific, and out of the Gulf, rocket-like objects that seemed to come up like fish leaping out of the water .  High into the air they leaped, each headed in a different direction, but every one towards The U.S.  On the ground, the sirens screamed louder.  And up from the ground I saw similar rockets begin to ascend.  To me, these appeared to be interceptor rockets although they arose from different points all over the U.S. However, none of them seemed to be successful in intercepting the rockets that had risen from the ocean on every side.  These rockets finally reached their maximum height, slowly turned over, and fell back toward the earth in defeat.  Them suddenly, the rockets which had leaped out of the ocean like fish all exploded at once.  The explosion was ear- splitting.  The next thing which I saw was a huge ball of fire.   The only thing I have ever seen which resembled the thing I saw in my vision was the picture of the explosion of the H-bomb in the South Pacific.  In my vision, it was so real I seemed to fell a searing heat from it.

As the vision spread before my eyes, and I viewed the widespread desolation brought about by the terrific explosions, I could not help thinking, ” While the defenders of our nation have quibbled over what means of defense to use, and neglected the only true means of defense, faith and dependence upon the true and living God, the thing which she greatly feared has come unto her!  How true it has proven that “Except the Lord keep The city, The watchman watches but in vain.”

Then as the noise of the battle subsided, to my ears cam this quotation from Joel, the second chapter, “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run…” (Joel 2:4).

Then suddenly I saw from the Atlantic and from the Pacific, and out of the Gulf, rocket-like objects that seemed to come up like fish leaping out of the water .  High into the air they leaped, each headed in a different direction, but every one towards The U.S.  On the ground, the sirens screamed louder.  And up from the ground I saw similar rockets begin to ascend.  To me, these appeared to be interceptor rockets although they arose from different points all over the U.S. However, none of them seemed to be successful in intercepting the rockets that had risen from the ocean on every side.  These rockets finally reached their maximum height, slowly turned over, and fell back toward the earth in defeat.  Them suddenly, the rockets which had leaped out of the ocean like fish all exploded at once.  The explosion was ear- splitting.  The next thing which I saw was a huge ball of fire.   The only thing I have ever seen which resembled the thing I saw in my vision was the picture of the explosion of the H-bomb in the South Pacific.  In my vision, it was so real I seemed to fell a searing heat from it.

As the vision spread before my eyes, and I viewed the widespread desolation brought about by the terrific explosions, I could not help thinking, ” While the defenders of our nation have quibbled over what means of defense to use, and neglected the only true means of defense, faith and dependence upon the true and living God, the thing which she greatly feared has come unto her!  How true it has proven that “Except the Lord keep The city, The watchman watches but in vain.”

Then as the noise of the battle subsided, to my ears cam this quotation from Joel, the second chapter, “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run…” (Joel 2:4).

CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC Empty ANALYSIS: Turkey's Erdogan is in real trouble

ANALYSIS: Turkey's Erdogan is in real trouble
Erdogan, whose party lost Turkey's internal elections, insists on purchase of Russian S-400 missiles, may find itself eased out of NATO.
Yochanan Visser, 12/04/19 00:08

President Erdogan reasserts authority in TurkeyFlash90
For the first time since Turkey’s Islamist leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan ascended to power, he’s in trouble at home, while at the same time the tyrant is risking a major confrontation with the United States.
Erdogan’s AKP party lost the March 31 municipal elections to the secular ultra-nationalist MHP party which used to help the AKP party to establish its Islamist regime.

As a result, for the first time in a quarter-century, Turkey’s main population centers such as Istanbul and Ankara will be governed by secular politicians and not by Islamists who take their orders from the Turkish strongman.

This means that Turkey’s economy will be largely controlled by the opposition since the country’s major cities count for more than half of Turkey’s GDP.

Erdogan tried to manipulate the local elections by nominating close allies such as parliament speaker Binali Yildirim and his Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci and turned the local elections into a referendum on his rule.

The move backfired, however.

When polls and surveys showed that the AKP party was trailing, Erdogan did what he is best at: He started to demonize his opponents, blaming foreign governments for Turkey’s ailing economy and using religion to mobilize the masses.

Gaza, Jerusalem, Mecca, and Raqqa were more important topics in Erdogan’s campaign than the improvement of living conditions in villages and cities in Turkey.

The residents of major Turkish cities apparently saw through Erdogan’s manipulations and rhetoric, and voted in the MHP party by a clear majority.

Erdogan now refuses to concede in Istanbul claiming the election there was invalid due to fraud at polling stations and demands a rerun of the voting.

Losing Istanbul and Ankara could have devastating consequences for Erdogan’s rule over Turkey since they form the backbone of his autocratic regime, observers say.

“Erdoğan, seemingly on his way to being a modern sultan, no longer seems invincible,” Doug Bandow, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute wrote this week.

The loss in the municipal elections is the result of economic mismanagement by the AKP government which caused the Turkish lira to lose 30 percent of its value last year and the near collapse of Turkey’s economy.

The country has slid into recession where unemployment and inflation are rising all the time.

“The opposition’s revival is good for the people of Turkey, who are suffering under Erdoğan’s increasingly authoritarian rule, as well as for Western governments, which should no longer view Ankara as a friend and ally,” according to Bandow who added that Turkey should be kicked out of NATO.

The Cato Institute fellow was referring to Erdogan’s decision to purchase the state-of-the-art Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile shield, a decision that drew the ire of the Trump Administration.

The Administration has already decided to stop the delivery of equipment for the F-35 stealth fighter plane to Turkey in order to pressure Erdogan and demand he cancel the deal with Putin’s Russia, but the hot-headed leader refuses to comply.

The S-400 missile shield is considered the world’s most advanced anti-aircraft system and the deal between Russia and Turkey is threatening Israel’s air superiority in the Middle East.

Washington is considering the purchase of the Russian system, a threat to the NATO since the deal would jeopardize the secrecy of its own and NATO weapon technologies and has offered to deliver the rival Patriot missile-shield to Turkey.

Erdogan, however, made clear he would not budge and vowed to go ahead with S-400 purchase while at the same time showing interest in buying the Patriot system on his terms and as an addition to the Russian system.

Congress has now adopted bi-partisan legislation that will scuttle the F-35 deal altogether whenever Ankara decides to go ahead with the purchase of the S-400.

Delivery of the S-400 system and the F-35 to Turkey would expose the weak spots of the American stealth jet to Russia, experts warned.

Tensions between the US and Turkey reached boiling point last week after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Erdogan’s regime of “devastating consequences” if the Turks go ahead with their planned invasion of Kurdish-held regions in Syria.

Erdogan and his Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu have repeatedly warned a Turkish invasion in what the Kurds call Rojova, the Kurdish autonomous region along the Turkish border in Syria, was about to begin but apparently, Ankara fears the American response to this new aggression against the Syrian Kurds.

Unilateral action in Syria by the Turks would have devastating consequences, State Department Robert Paladino told reporters last week after a meeting between Çavuşoğlu and Pompeo in Washington.

Paladino’s remarks led to a new row between the Erdogan regime and Washington with Çavuşoğlu charging that the United States hasn’t “a clear strategy” Syria.

The U.S. recently decided to leave 200 military advisers in Rojova whose presence is meant to deter the Turks from attacking the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces, which together with the US army defeated Islamic State in Syria.

“Increasingly, Ankara is no friend to America or the West,” Bandow wrote and advised NATO to toss Turkey out of the North Atlantic alliance

“Rather than desperately attempting to hold Ankara in NATO, the allies should begin considering how to ease Turkey out,” the former special assistant to President Reagan added.

History like you have never seen it before and this is just the tip of the iceberg. It on touches on the actions of man. It does not even go into the natural disasters that are also coming. Long video but well worth watching if you really want a handle on the up coming elections. If you think any one candidate is going to change all of this, you are still asleep.

After a nuclear holocaust, we’ll go to heaven as martyrs; those who nuked us will go to hell – Putin

After a nuclear holocaust, we’ll go to heaven as martyrs; those who nuked us will go to hell – Putin

If any nation decides to attack Russia with nuclear weapons, it may end life on Earth; but unlike the aggressors, the Russians are sure to go to heaven, President Vladimir Putin has said.
“Any aggressor should know that retribution will be inevitable and he will be destroyed. And since we will be the victims of his aggression, we will be going to heaven as martyrs. They will simply drop dead, won’t even have time to repent,” Putin said during a session of the Valdai Club in Sochi.

He added that Russia’s nuclear forces are not tailored for a pre-emptive strike, and exist as a second-strike capability meant to deter an attack by a foreign nation.

The Russian nuclear doctrine allows for the use of this weapon in a conventional conflict, but only if Russia’s existence is at stake. This presumably gives the Russian military a loophole to use tactical nuclear weapons in the case of a large-scale invasion. The self-imposed restrictions are less harsh than a complete ‘no-first-use’ pledge, which was dropped by Moscow in 1993.

The US’ latest nuclear posture review says that Washington may use nuclear weapons in response to a non-nuclear attack on itself or its allies. It remains vague about the exact circumstances that may trigger such an action. This gave rise to speculation that even a cyberattack may permit a nuclear response. Meanwhile, a call for the creation of small-yield submarine-launched missiles and nuclear-capable sea-launched cruise missiles have only added to concerns that the US is stocking up for some kind of large-scale conflict.

CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC Empty BLAMING GLOBAL WARMING

Post  Admin on Thu 09 Aug 2018, 10:44 pm

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/after-libs-blame-west-coast-fires-on-global-warming-forester-speaks-out/?utm_source=push&utm_medium=conservativetribune&utm_content=2018-08-09&utm_campaign=manualpost
After Libs Blame West Coast Fires on Global Warming, Forester Speaks out
BY JARED HARRIS

Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print
Global warming is a hot topic in coffee shops all over the West Coast. Fear mongering has reached a fever pitch, with people assuming a 1 degree change in temperature will instantly incinerate them like Sarah Connor in the “Terminator 2” nuke scene.

The rampant wildfires have done nothing to ease their worries, with many jumping to blame the Republican Party for natural disasters in a state that has been voting blue in the Electoral College since before the Soviet Union kicked the bucket.

One man does know the truth, and it all goes back to the Clintons, an owl and some old trees.

In 1994, then-President Bill Clinton introduced a plan that would work twofold to save the majestic spotted owl AND ancient trees: Restricting logging in the old-growth forests. Bob Zybach knew that was a mistake.

A forester by trade, Zybach knew how ecosystems thrive, flourish, die and are reborn. With no human management, any forester knows, Mother Nature will do the pruning herself. Instead of forestry saws and burn lines, nature likes things dramatic.

“We knew exactly what would happen if we just walked away,” Zybach told The Daily Caller. Years of mismanagement have served to turn the forests into a ticking time bomb. This has not always been the case, however.

Should this be investigated as criminal mismanagement?

Zybach said that Native Americans practiced human management of forests, starting controlled burns to clear pastureland and undergrowth for hunting. Shortly after they were driven out and their practices stopped, the West Coast’s first rash of wildfires happened.

Now these states are repeating the same mistakes their settler ancestors made.

“You take away logging, grazing and maintenance, and you get firebombs,” Zybach said.

Although not strictly a “firebomb,” the wildfires are so violent that they have spawned a “firenado” from the sheer intensity of the heat.



With record wildfires engulfing over 600,000 acres, Zybach’s prediction has played out in a deadly fashion.

While wildfires do happen across the country, poor management by western states has served to turn entire regions into tinderboxes. By letting nature play out its course so close to civilization, this is the course California and Oregon have taken.

Many in heartland America and along the Eastern Seaboard often see logging and firelines if they travel to a rural area. This is part and parcel of life outside of the city, where everyone knows that because of a few minor eyesores their houses and communities are safer from the primal fury of wildfires.

Across Oregon and California, 22 fires are running out of control on 762,000 acres of land.

It makes you wonder how the owls are doing.
