As Christians, we are called to pray for God’s guidance and wisdom. At Rapture Ready we feel it is more imperative than ever for believers to stand together in prayerful unity as the world continues on a downward spiral toward the Tribulation hour. Calamity causes people to waste huge amounts of time fixated on watching the destruction instead of praying for protection and God’s miraculous interventions.
The Bible is filled with verses encouraging us to stay focused on praying for God’s will for our lives; for the safety and
Up to the final moments of our days on earth, until the day of the Rapture of the Church, we are dedicated to be prayer warriors for the cause of Christ. We have added this new page to invite and motivate our fellow believers to pray for the most pressing needs of the day.
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2)
Pompous Pride and Planet Perplexity
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:7-9).
Depravity: In California, a Disciples of Christ Church in San Diego that describes itself as “radically inclusive” purchased a billboard atop a gay bar with the message, “God takes pride in you; so do we!”
Last Sunday, Netflix aired a “Salute to Abortion,” hosted by “comedian” Michelle Wolf, who closed the segment with a star-spangled, flag-waving, drum corps declaration: “God bless abortion!” On her weekly Netflix program, “The Break with Michelle Wolf” (in the wake of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s announced retirement), Wolf touted abortion rights and demeaned pro-life Americans.
A disgusting, profanity-laced video (link inside if you dare to watch) posted to social media on Monday features an interview with the woman behind the “Thank God for abortion” float that appeared at the NYC Pride Parade on June 24. She says she was “blessed” to have two abortions, and says she’s trying to push back against Christian beliefs that stand against homosexuality and abortion.
Marvel Studios has announced that two openly gay “heroes” are coming to movies screens soon. In May, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation raked Marvel Studios over the coals for not having enough homosexuals in their films. Now GLAAD has gotten their wish.
By the time the San Diego, California Pride Parade got underway Saturday, the party was already in full swing, and it seemed everyone was invited. Over a quarter of a million people watched or participated, and there was a rallying cry to “Persist with Pride.”
Tacoma, Washington’s Mayor Victoria Woodards was busy posing for photos with festival goers after the Pride event kicked off on Saturday. It was her first Pride as mayor.
Scotland’s First Minister and leader of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, led Glasgow’s largest Pride event ever on Saturday. The event was so full that hundreds with valid tickets couldn’t get in.
Huff Post was so proud of Pride this year, they boastfully said #TheFutureIsQueer.
Three young employees at a senior living facility: Mya Moss, Jorden Bruce, and Lizeth Ramirez were arrested for not attending to and videotaping a patient who had just had a stroke. They watched her dying while uploading the event to Snapchat, a social media video platform. On the video, Ramirez and Bruce can be seen sitting in chairs laughing, screaming obscenities and using a vape cigarette while Moss was shooting the video.
From Daily Caller: Many blogs exist on Tumblr showing support for MAPs, claiming they should be part of the LGBT community, and attempt to create “safe spaces” for “minor attracted persons.” The blog “Pedophiles about Pedophilia” presents sob stories of “marginalized” pedophiles in pretty pastel colors, claiming they mean no harm and just want to be loved, as shown in such headlines as “Why Pedophilia And Pedophiles Are Not A Risk To Children,” etc. This name change follows the liberal trend of rebranding with “politically correct” names; but is the next step really normalizing pedophilia?
In Texas, 25-year-old Sarah Peters has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for attempting to sell her two-year-old daughter for a sex act, for $1,200, to an undercover police officer who impersonated a willing pedophile.
Sexually transmitted disease: A little known sexually transmitted infection could become the next superbug unless people become more vigilant. Mycoplasma genitalium (MG) often has no symptoms but can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, which can leave some women infertile. MG can be missed, and if not treated correctly can develop resistance to antibiotics.
Drugs: Methamphetamine is back, more popular, plentiful and lethal than ever.
Pestilence: A deadly parasitic worm is coming to Europe due to third-world migration, one of the many benefits of open borders. Schistosomiasis is caused by infection with blood dwelling schistosome flatworms. Its impact is so great that some have claimed it’s second only to malaria on the scale of devastating parasitic diseases. Hundreds to thousands of eggs are produced daily by each female worm, which causes chronic complications. Eggs that migrate into the intestines or bladder are released into the environment when an infected person defecates or urinates. If the eggs reach fresh water, they can hatch and release snail-infective schistosome stages, which effectively completes the life cycle.
Apostasy: We’re witnessing a religious shift unprecedented in size and scope in American history. With each passing year, the percentage of Americans that claim no religious affiliation is growing; this trend is especially pronounced among young people. If it continues, it’s going to have enormous implications for the future of our society. The US was founded by people extremely committed to their faith; now we’re rapidly becoming a nation where people are choosing no religion at all.
Natural disasters: In California, a large fire that broke out late Thursday night in Chico that burned 650 acres in a little more than 13 hours. Meanwhile, firefighters continued to control several other large fires burning in Northern California. Second-generation California firefighter, Braden Varney, 36, was killed while trying to prevent a wildfire from spreading near Yosemite National Park.
In Hawaii, video captured an explosion off Kapoho, where lava is flowing into the sea. The explosion just offshore of a lava delta threw plumes of smoke and rock high into the air. It’s all a part of the process that has already created about 655 of acres of new land on The Big Island as ongoing eruptions continue. The interaction of molten lava with cool seawater can cause pulsating “littoral explosions,” which can throw fragments of molten lava and pieces of solidified glass lava “high into the air.”
In Greenland, officials evacuated some residents in the village of Innaarsuit on Friday after a huge iceberg neared the island. Villagers said they’ve never seen an iceberg this big.
Israel’s Defense Ministry, the security establishment, and the National Emergency Authority held an emergency meeting after dozens of earthquakes were felt in northern Israel in recent days. 80,000 buildings, including schools and hospitals over three stories high were built before 1980, and are not constructed to current standards.
A 2016 report found that if Israel were struck by a 7.5 earthquake, an estimated 7,000 people would be killed, 8,600 injured and 377,000 left homeless. In addition to buildings being destroyed, the damage to critical infrastructures such as electricity, water and communication would be great. Also, inland damage of a major earthquake, Israel’s coastline, would risk being devastated by possible tsunamis.
Extreme weather: In the aftermath of the disastrous and historic flooding across western Japan, survivors and recovery crews will continue to face sweltering heat and humidity. The death toll rose to 203 on Friday with dozens more people still missing.
Persecution of Christians: In England, Dr. David Mackereth, NHS doctor for 26 years, was “sacked” as a medical assessor for a government department for refusing to renounce his Christian belief that gender is determined at birth.
Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian. What’s going on right now in Nigeria is “pure genocide” of Christians.
Christians have been rooted in the Middle East as minority communities since its birth, but their numbers are declining amid conflict and jihadist attacks.
In the UK, unveiling plans to step up its war on what it calls “hate speech,” the Home Office promised a police cash boost to give call handlers “specialist training” developed partly by a George Soros-backed NGO on how to give people reporting so-called hate crimes “the vital support they need.” Who do you think will be the prime target accused of hate speech? Christians. And as far as hate crime, we’ve seen that the main perpetrators seem to be more protected than the victims. Soros backed? Nuff said.
Anti-Semitism: Well, well; Paypal did something good. The giant US online payment service shut down the account of a major French boycott, sanctions, divestment (BDS) organization that targets Israel.
In California, The Democratic Socialists of America have endorsed a rabid anti-Semitic candidate. Maria Estrada – supporter of the ranting and raving Jew/whites-hating Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan – is running in a district representing suburban Los Angeles.
In Minnesota, Hijab-wearing Muslim Democrat, Ilhan Omar, who is running for Congress, blames Israel for ‘evil doings’ in Gaza.
Israel’s Defense Minister Lieberman called for Israel to shut down the Israeli Embassy in Dublin in response to the Irish Senate voting overwhelmingly to approve a proposal to boycott companies and imports of goods from West Bank settlements.
Caught between Muslim jihadists and neo-Nazis, Swedish Jews fear for their future.
The Muslim Congress’ 14th annual conference entitled “Islam: Religion of Hope” on July 6-8 in Orlando, Florida featured anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying, anti-gay (the Qur’an calls for killing gays), and pro-terrorist speakers.
A Geneva Watchdog group says the UN has failed to seriously combat anti-Semitism and in some cases de-Judaized the Holocaust. UN Watch made the accusation in a report it presented at the Knesset.
Islamization: In Europe, more people are dying that are being born, while the Muslim population is greatly increasing.
Global government ruse: These 8 words are the death of climate change: It violates the Equivalence Principle, therefore it’s wrong. At its very core, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) violated a key principle of physics. Human emissions do not change climate, and futile attempts to reduce human emissions (and those of cows) will not change climate.
A report from Scientific American said there are problems this year for the species of shorebirds that each year descend on the Arctic to mate and raise chicks. The reproduction happens in the summer, but because of extensive July snow this year, there’s been no summer.
Rise of the Kings of the East: China will provide “Palestinians” with over $15 million in aid as it seeks to build its influence in the Middle East and Africa.
Terrorism/Nation against nation: A suicide bomber killed at least 128 people at a campaign rally in Pakistan – the deadliest attack in the country since 2014. ISIS claimed the attack. Earlier, a bomb attack on a similar rally in the northern town of Bannu killed four people. The attacks come ahead of general elections on 25 July.
In Iraq, targeted attacks by ISIS on police and government officials have risen in several provinces. Assassinations require few people and are perfectly suited as a force multiplier for a group that has seen its forces decimated. The late June assassination of 8 Iraqi security personnel, filmed and put online by ISIS’ media outlet, was the most recent and most high-profile of these attacks in the last six months.
Israel closer to the Time of Jacob’s Trouble: The Israeli government recently announced that the largest community of Jews in the world is now in Israel. This has far-reaching Messianic ramifications in Jewish Law and requires the Jews to reinstate Biblical commandments not seen in two thousand years, bringing redemption a significant step closer.
Last year set a record for the number of Jews ascending to the Temple Mount; this week, with two months still left until the Jewish new year, that record was broken. This rising interest in Judaism’s holiest site is considered hopeful for paving the way for the Third Temple.
The 9th of Av (Tisha B’Av) is a fast day commemorating the destruction of both Jewish Temples. This year it begins the evening of July 21 and ends the following evening. See this article from 2012 which describes the many calamities that have befallen the Jewish people on Tisha B’Av throughout history.
Signs in the sun: As of July 10th, the sun has been without sunspots for 100 days in 2018. If current trends continue, 2018 will end with a 10-year low in sunspot counts. This is a sign that Solar Minimum is approaching–even more rapidly than forecasters expected. Low solar activity boosts cosmic rays – atom fragments that rain down on Earth that have been blamed for electronics problems in satellites and other machinery.
Leftist agenda: First some good news. The Wisconsin Supreme Court sent a powerful message to America’s elite private universities: If you’re going to promise academic freedom, you’d better deliver it. The court held that Marquette University violated its own faculty handbook when it effectively terminated professor John McAdams for writing a blog post criticizing a graduate student instructor’s attempts to silence debate about gay rights in her ethics class.
Trump protestors filled the streets of London on Friday the 13th while the president visited with the queen. We can safely assume these deceived ones drank the globalist-laced kool-aid and want the fall of Europe to continue. However, the next day Trump supporters came out to show that not everyone in Britain drank that deadly indoctrinating potion.
Planned Parenthood baby killers and baby parts sellers are daring to make demands regarding the Supreme Court pick.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said this week that Jesus would approve of gay marriage and certain abortions in an interview with HuffPost Live.
Despite having some of the strictest firearms laws in the country, Chicago continues to be plagued by rampant gun violence. The death toll is increasing daily.
Marxist/Socialist/Communist corruption: Mexicans have elected a new far-left, authoritarian socialist president who supports open borders or, at least, open between his country and ours. He said Mexico “will defend, without conditions, the right of our citizens to earn a living anywhere in the world. He backs amnesty for drug kingpins and, when asked in 2006 about their beheading of police officers, would only answer “love and peace.” Interviewed by the Mexican media, he kept repeating his “Imagine” mantra in this exchange:
– Aren’t you worried about what is happening with drug trafficking?
– I’m not answering that, we are in truce. Love and peace.
– The narcos left a message to the government. What do you say?
– I’m not going to answer. I offer apologies to all. Love and peace.
Mexicans also may not be able to get rid of AMLO (Andrés Manuel López Obrador) when his constitutional term of six years (with no re-election allowed) is over. He will likely seek, as the other Marxist rulers in the hemisphere have done, constitutional change to permit re-election. The US has never faced so clear a danger on its border.
Much of Nicaragua has been in revolt against President Daniel Ortega’s leftist regime since April when he cut pensions and social security. Citizens are enraged by how he’s consolidated authoritarian power over his four terms as president and has allowed his security to use deadly force against protesters. Over 300 people have been killed since the conflict began, the vast majority civilians. On Friday, pro-government militias set out to crush a student rebellion at the university. Two students were killed and at least 10 were injured.
Cashless society: The cashless movement continues to grow. As we know, the coming Antichrist’s global government will be cashless, with the left behind required to take his mark of worship in order to buy, sell…or live.
Orwellian society: A group of researchers and students at MIT have developed an intelligent radar-like technology that makes it possible to see through walls to track people as they move around.
Facebook removed a music video from the Facebook page of the Gospel Group, Zion’s Joy titled “What Would Heaven Look Like.” The video opens with images of strife and protests as the group sings lines including, “I know it might feel like this trouble will stay, but this world will soon fade away.”
Traitors: First, the good news—if it passes. It seems the new “Unmasking Antifa Act” has ruffled a few feathers among the lefists. Introduced in the House by Rep Dan Donovan (R-NY), H.R. 6054 is a response to a spate of violent attacks provoked by masked members of Antifa, and would punish anyone wearing a mask who “injures, oppresses, threatens or intimidates” a person “in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” with a fine and up to 15 years in prison.
Over the past few years the Deep State DOJ and FBI redacted documents allegedly in the name of national security but also created false documents.
Former FBI agent Strzok refused to admit that three different versions of the salacious Trump dossier were drummed up. Rudy Guliani said, “Isn’t that called collusion or conspiracy to gin up a totally inappropriate, totally illegally wire based on national security? And doesn’t it taint the entire Russian probe? That’s a disgrace; [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller should be ashamed of himself. Those Democrats trying to protect that liar, Strzok, should be ashamed of themselves. And every FBI agent I know wants to see this guy drummed out of the bureau,” he said.
Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that Hillary Clinton’s over 30,000 emails, except four, were going to an unauthorized foreign entity unrelated to Russia. ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but the FBI official did nothing with the information.
An investigation has found that the Obama administration, citing “political concerns” in 2013, derailed a plan to prosecute Taliban drug kingpins in U.S. courts that could have curtailed unprecedented heroin operations in Afghanistan, which fueled the deadly opioid crisis across the US.
The European Union’s Ambassador to Israel Emanuele Giaufret urged parliamentarians not to support the Knesset bill, which states that Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people. It would anchor in law the state’s menorah emblem, Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, national holidays and the right of all Israeli residents to preserve their heritage. Israel’s President Rivlin and the attorney general oppose the bill as well, stating that it would cause problems.
The “Palestinian” pandering pope led a summit in Italy to promote Middle East “peace.” He says walls, occupied territories (he considers Israel to be the occupier) and Christian fundamentalists (that would be us) hamper peace. Francis has previously called for all to honor UN resolutions on the city (that would be against Israel). The Vatican also didn’t support the US embassy move to Jerusalem, and it backs the so-called “two-state solution.”
Germany’s administration refuses to impose sanctions against Iran and plans to allow Iran to fly over $350 million in cash out of the country and back to Tehran as part of an effort by the Iranian regime to restock its coffers. The US is trying to convince Germany not to allow this.
Wars and rumors of wars: Europe stands no chance if forced to face conflict on three fronts. On the eastern flank, there are continuous tensions with Russia, and in the Balkans near the border with Turkey. In the Mediterranean area, young and strong men from Africa and Central Asia cross European borders with the support of a thousand people from the continent’s heartland. Europeans are also militarily involved in Afghanistan, Syria and take part in the growing conflict in Mali.
Between Friday and Saturday, 200 projectiles were fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip Three Israelis were injured when their home was struck. In response, Israel’s IAF carried out the largest daytime operation against Hamas since Operation Protective Edge in 2014 with fighter jets hitting 40 targets across the Gaza Strip.
Video footage obtained by TPS shows hundreds of locals in recent days denouncing Assad and Russian President Vladimir Putin and gathering at the Syria-Israel border to ask for IDF protection against possible reprisals by the victorious forces.
Israel is providing humanitarian aid to the thousands of Syrians camped out in tents near Israel’s frontier, hoping to find sanctuary from the government onslaught. “We were brainwashed for decades to hate Israel,” said Hani, a resident of southern Syria being treated for shrapnel wounds at Israel’s Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya. “I now see that my enemy isn’t Israel, but the people who came and destroyed our village.”
Israel’s PM Netanyahu said he has no problem with Assad staying in power, but South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham warned him that Assad and Iran are a package deal. Without Iran/Hezbollah, Syria’s Assad would not be in power and would not have the ability to slaughter almost a half-million Syrians. Without Assad’s blessing, the flags of Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard would not be on Israel’s front door. He also warned Netanyahu not to trust Russia to keep Iran at bay.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said it’s “awaiting orders” to attack Israel ahead of the Putin/Netanyahu summit meeting. The possibility for further clashes between Israel and Damascus remains high.
Iranian Revolutionary Guard Deputy Commander Hossein Salami promised to fight Israel from Lebanese soil. Salami explained his rationale for destroying the State of Israel. He said the “problem” of Israel’s existence could be solved primarily by using the “mighty power” of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group. His (translated) speech was titled “The problems of the Islamic world stem from the existence of the false, counterfeit, historically rootless, and identity-less regime named Israel.” He called on young Muslims to unite and wage jihad against Israelis and Americans and referred to “Palestinians” as Iran’s main tool against their true enemy: the US.
Syria accused Israel of striking Syria’s T4 Airbase last Sunday night near Homs hours after a senior Iranian official said Iran will maintain its military presence in Syria. The report stated that the attack targeted Iranian forces and pro-Assad militias. In addition Hezbollah forces are also located at the base.
The Israeli military struck three Syrian military targets overnight on Wednesday in retaliation for a Syrian drone that infiltrated into northern Israel hours earlier.
There are fears of new conflicts at one of Israel’s quietest borders. A reinforced deployment of tanks and heavy guns is parked along Israel’s frontier with Syria as the civil war that transformed the balance of power in the Middle East appears headed into its final stretch. The fighting in Syria has come full circle as its army sets its sights on retaking Daraa province. The Iranians are deeply embedded in the Syrian security forces; and if they stay in large numbers, the potential for greater conflict between Israel and Iran in Syria will remain high.
Knesset Speaker Edelstein calls for an iron wall on Israel’s northern border and says Israel must prepare for events ahead of time. “Today, we are witness to the creation of a new reality on the Syrian border. We don’t know who will control the area in the future, and how long the bloodbath will continue…We ourselves need to ensure that the eternal fire of the Jewish nation will never be extinguished.”
The Hal Lindsey Report is a MUST WATCH this week: The topics are Planetary Distress, UNRWA, The Other Refugees, and A World of Hurt. Watch at this link.
All Time Heat Records Set All Over the World This Week, even Siberia, plus more prayer concerns
Extreme weather and related disaster: All-time heat records have been set all over the world during the past week with extreme temperatures reaching even far north. The heat caused 33 deaths in Canada. Even northern Siberia in Russia “has been getting blowtorched” with maximum temperatures of above 32 C. (90 degrees F). The highest temperature was on the African continent in Algeria where it reached 124 degrees F (51 C). Forget about blaming bogus global warming aka climate change though. God is in control, and He’s surely not happy with the world these days.
Over 60 large fires are burning across the US, mostly in the West, where winds and increasing heat have made it easy for flames to spread.
Arson is suspected in UK fires, but don’t expect names/ethnicities to be released. A second man has been arrested on suspicion of arson, as a Moorland fire in Lancashire burns into its second week. People were seen lighting a bonfire on the moors near Stalybridge, Greater Manchester on Wednesday.
Record torrential rains across western and central Japan unleashed flooding and landslides. Dozens are dead and dozens are missing. Over one million people in 18 districts were ordered to evacuate their homes and 3.5 million were urged to leave.
In Thailand, four boys have been rescued from a flooded cave where they and their soccer coach have been trapped for nearly two weeks. The rescue operation will resume first thing Monday morning. More rains are due to hit the region, and dive teams must hurry.
Typhoon Maria’s near 100 mph increase in strength in just one day is one of the fastest tropical storms to Category 5 intensification rates on record for a storm in the western Pacific Ocean.
Tropical Storm Beryl is tracking westwards through the Atlantic Ocean.
On Hawaii’s Big Island, an area of nearly stationary heavy showers fell on Saturday near Leilani Estates. The heaviest showers fell at rates of 3 inches per hour, causing flood watches.
Earthquakes/Volcanoes: There was another eruption at Kilauea on Saturday. The lava continues to flow with no end in sight.
Northern Israel has had three earthquakes in less than a week: 4.1 on Wednesday, 4.3 on Thursday, and 3.4 on Saturday. Dr. Ariel Heiman, a geologist and expert on earthquakes said, “…We are located along the Syrian-African rift, and there is movement and friction that cause earthquakes.” He warned that “a very strong earthquake in the State of Israel is not a question of if, but a question of when.” We students of Bible prophecy know that this will indeed occur (See Ezekiel 38:19-23).
A 6.0-magnitude earthquake hit Japan Saturday evening outside Tokyo, shaking buildings in the capital. There were 31 earthquakes this week that registered between 5.0 and 6.0 on the Richter scale that occurred in the world, most in the ocean.
Pestilence: Frozen vegetables were the likely source of the Listeria outbreak in five countries, including the UK. South Africa has had the worst Listeria outbreak in history from processed cold meats, most notably bologna which they call polony. It has killed 200 people and infected 1,000.
For those in the US, you may be surprised to find that not every food you buy is required to be labeled as to country of origin: Read about that here.
Depravity: In Boise, Idaho, a man with a history of violence who had been invited to stay at a residence in an apartment complex, but was later asked to leave due to bad behavior, returned for revenge and stabbed several people including small children at a birthday party. A 3-year-old died. He had a tattoo under his eye which is known to indicate murders committed.
Crew members, actors, locations and the director backed out of the upcoming movie “Roe v. Wade” (whose executive producer is Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr) when they realized it is not going to be pro-abortion. The film features Jon Voight, Robert Davi, Corbin Bernsen, John Schneider, and Stacey Dash – all outspoken conservatives. The location manager (a staunch feminist) of one of the scenes shot in DC called the film “horrible propaganda” and walked off. The electrician told the new director to F— himself, then walked off.
In Ashdod, Israel, dozens of residents demonstrated against the planned Gay Pride Parade in the city. “There is a dark minority group that wants to bring us back to…Sodom and Gomorrah with their ‘Pride Parades…There is no pride in the destruction of the family.”
In Australia, Catholic archbishop Philip Wilson who has been convicted for covering up child abuse by a pedophile priest decades ago, says he’ll appeal his sentence and won’t resign. Wilson was given a maximum sentence of 12 months in custody, but is likely to serve his time in home detention. This week, a magistrate said Wilson had shown no remorse.
In Britain, the research group, Ipsos Mori, says that among Generation Z (ages 16 to 22), only 66% are “exclusively heterosexual” – the lowest figure of any generation. For other groups: Millennials, 71%; Generation X, 85%; baby boomers 88%. Its research also shows that 3 out of 5 British 15 to 16 year olds think sexuality is a scale and that it is possible to be somewhere in the middle. The report suggests that “liberal” acceptance of the gay lifestyle has led young people to have a “less binary (two-gender) view of sexuality.” This trend will only continue.
A man who identifies as a woman representing Spain is competing in the Miss Universe pageant.
The mayor of Paris, Anne Hildago, announced that a number of pedestrian crossings painted in rainbow colors for last Saturday’s Gay Pride March will become a permanent fixture of the Parisian landscape.
In England, some 40 secondary schools banned girls from wearing skirts one month after a school in Oxfordshire recommended male students wear them due to soaring temperatures. Schools are opting for gender-neutral uniforms for all in order to encompass transgender students.
Globalist agendas and the consequences: In the US, the good news is that many Democrats are waking up to the hypocrisy and true agenda of this Party and are walking away. The founder of the #walkaway campaign, Brandon Straka, is a gay hairdresser. Because of his walkaway campaign, he was refused service at the electronics superstore Adorama in Manhattan, New York, after spending over an hour choosing equipment at the store. He was shaken by this. Hopefully, he will continue to awaken and put his trust in Christ who can save him from the LGBT lifestyle.
Rep. Devin Nunes is referring 42 Obama administration officials, FBI agents and outside political activists to a House task force for investigation into how the Obama Justice Dept targeted the Trump campaign. This new inquiry was sparked by indications that a piece of evidence driving the FBI Russian collusion probe – the Democratic Party-financed dossier – was unverified and at worst a hoax.
This week, the New York Times used the usual leftist tactic of “projection” in its article “How Conservatives Weaponized the First Amendment.” In other words, free speech should only be granted to liberals, not conservatives.
Remember that oldie that goes like this: “If you’re goin’ to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.” And the other one “I left my heart in San Francisco…” These days you’d better wear a hazmat suit over body armor to protect your heart and every other part. And all the flowers in the city won’t cover up the smell of urine and feces everywhere. A major medical convention that has been coming to San Francisco since the 1980s has decided it will stop because they’re afraid to walk amid open drug use, threatening behavior and mental illness on the streets.
In Oakland, Calfornia, ICE and the local police department were executing a raid on suspected child sex traffickers when a crowd of angry liberals assembled to protest — before they even had a single clue what was going on. Here were some of the rants: We love our neighbors, OPD is a disgrace, ICE is the problem, no human is illegal, we support immigration rights, no borders, etc.
The US has always supported LEGAL immigration rights. Also, it doesn’t seem to register with these indoctrinated ones that many of these illegals are “lured” from their homes by human traffickers with promises of good-paying jobs but are then sold or exchanged into “prostitution, domestic servitude, farm or factory labor or other types of forced labor. And this is besides the many children who are brought here by sex traffickers posing as parents. Both the UK and US are DNA testing migrant children who’ve entered the country illegally, for this very reason.
President Trump and his wife will visit Britain on Friday. London-istan’s Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan gave permission for protestors to fly a giant balloon depicting him as an orange baby. This has altered how the visit will go for Trump’s visit with the queen; now it will be a quiet affair. Nevertheless, Pres. Trump has supporters in Britain who are rooting for him.
In France, a new parliamentary report says that between 150,000 and 400,000 illegal immigrants live in a Paris suburb. This is severely straining public services and creating social tensions, not to mention the trafficking and delinquency that is occurring due to unemployment. 550 migrants a day are still arriving in the city. Many come from Italy as there are no structural border checks between the countries.
In England, parent Mark McLachlan is being called a racist and Islamophobic bigot for refusing to allow his Christian stepdaughter to complete an assignment from the Kepier School secondary school, which requires the class to write a letter to their families about why they’re converting to Islam.
Terrorism: Al-Shabab terrorists launched their first major attack in the Somali capital Mogadishu since the start of Ramadan almost two months ago. They stormed the ministry of the interior and national security after detonating two car bombs. At least 10 deaths were reported and at least 20 civilians were reported injured.
Nation against nation: In Iran, the people of Khouzestan province held several large demonstrations this week to protest the lack of water. The running water looks like mud. Now the regime has opened fire on the protestors.
In Ethiopia, over 800,000 people have been forced from their homes due to a new wave of inter-ethnic violence taking place since June.
In Haiti, citizens held protests against the government due to a huge increase in gas prices. At least three people were killed when protests turned violent Friday. A crowd beat one person to death and set the body on fire. There are reports of vandalism, fires and roadblocks. The lower house threatened a government takeover if the price hike was not reversed. The government complied on Saturday.
Wars and rumors of wars: Government forces in southern Syria are advancing near the Jordanian border and Israel’s Golan Heights. Armored vehicles have been spotted including a tank with a Russian flag. Hezbollah is sneakily helping lead the offensive, defying neighboring Israel’s demands that Iran-backed forces stay away from its border.
Kings of the East: China claims to have produced a firearm that produces an energy beam that can’t be seen by the naked eye, but can travel half a mile away and burn through human skin and other materials.
Anti-Semitism: Leicester in the UK, the city with a large Muslim population (18.6%) passed a resolution to boycott Jewish businesses. The Court of Appeals upheld the ban, throwing the Jewish council appeal out. Islamic hatred for Jews (and Christians) is in the Quran. Jews are already leaving France and other countries in Europe in large numbers because of the increasingly menacing presence of Islamic anti-Semitism. Britain is no different. British authorities pander to their increasingly aggressive Muslim populations, but it won’t help: total submission will still be required—per Islam’s Qur’an.
Persecution of Christians: In Canada, Bill Whatcott has been charged with a “hate crime” for distributing pamphlets at a gay pride rally that said homosexuality is a sin and can lead to HIV, and said they can receive salvation through Christ. He faces up to two years behind bars for this “indictable” offense.
Canadian psychologist, author and free speech advocate Jordan Peterson warns Canadian Christians that they must make a “great leap forward” because religious freedom in the country is set to get “a lot worse.”
Apostasy, false prophets and Godlessness: Philippine President Duterte, who recently sparked outrage for calling God stupid, has caused new controversy by saying he will resign if anyone can prove God exists.
Hundreds of Ethiopian Catholics at the Yerer Selassie church paid up to a month’s wages to be punched by a priest and doused in so-called “holy water.” Ethiopian Orthodox priest Memehir Wedimu claims to be able to free people from demons. Allegedly, he rejected all other churches because he earned more money than the church itself. People cried and screamed as Memehir punched them. He kept asking for money. One very elderly woman give him a $100 (£76) bill to ‘expel’ her of demons and he still wanted more, even though $100 was likely all she could earn in a month.
The Episcopal Church is super focused on things like climate change, performing same-sex marriages and having celebrations when a transgender adopts a new name. But biblical doctrine doesn’t enter into the equation. Their new mission is to remove all references to God as a male, and all instances of any masculine pronouns in their Book of Common Prayer.
The Vatican has recognized “LGBT” for the first time, as bishops say the Catholic church must be more inclusive. The “Instrumentum laboris” document also said pre-synodal meetings had welcomed “young people from other Christian confessions, from other religions and from non-believers. As most have probably heard, the pope told a young man last month who’d been a victim of a priest’s sexual abuse that God had created him to be gay.
We see the one-world religion advancing its agenda every day.
Orwellian society: Google said a year ago it would stop its computers from scanning inboxes of Gmail users for information to personalize advertisements. But the internet giant continues to let hundreds of outside software developers scan inboxes of millions. This is not limited to Gmail users. Yahoo is partnering with Amazon to spy on you, and tells you that you must either comply or lose your Yahoo account. Facebook has admitted to sharing personal data of its users with 61 different companies. We’re all being spied on from many electronic devices that we use from smart TVs to smart phones, etc.
The Antichrist and his partner, the false prophet, will use this to their great advantage during the Tribulation on all the left behind who refuse Antichrist’s mark of worship.
“But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:4-9).
