Increasing Birth Pangs
Natural disasters: The latest update on the situation in Hawaii’s Big Island is disheartening following a volcanic eruption and a series of earthquakes (including a 6.9, the largest earthquake to hit Hawaii in over 40 years): The over 1,700 people evacuated due to the threat posed by lava and toxic gas pouring out of vents that opened miles away from the summit still cannot go back even briefly. New vents have opened after another earthquake on Sunday (4.0), and officials don’t know how long this will continue. Those who didn’t take pets to shelters with them are worried about them. There’s no news on whether those who chose to stay behind have since been able to evacuate.
In Poland, one miner is dead and three are still missing after a 3.4 earthquake caused a coal mine to partially collapse.
In southwestern Pakistan near Quetta, twenty-three miners were killed and 11 wounded after gas explosions tore through two neighboring coal mines.
In Canada, the Saint John River rose to levels not seen in 45 years, and officials worry the worst of the resulting flooding is still to come. Upwards of 1,000 people have evacuated so far.
In Ankara, Turkey, flash floods caused by heavy rain took only nine minutes to wreak havoc. There were dramatic scenes of drivers trying to escape from their vehicles as cars were being swept away by flood waters. Ankara’s Mayor Mustafa Tuna said it was “a natural disaster like never before.”
In India, many were killed or injured as a huge dust storm and heavy rain swept through.
Nation (ethnic) against nation (ethnic): Speaking of India, heartbreaking stories are being reported regarding its severe rape and murder crisis (40% of these crimes are committed against children). India’s culture tends to abort baby girls; therefore it has a lot more males. The country is 80% Hindu, 14% Muslim, and both are locked in a power struggle with Muslims currently on the losing end. Neither cultures treat females with respect.
Pestilence: In the US, 26 states have now been affected from E. coli-contaminated romaine lettuce. The contagion has sickened 121 people. One has died and four have developed kidney failure.
Drug and alcohol addiction: In California, highway workers are worried about their health, as they now have to pick up used drug syringes and feminine products, urine, and feces around so-called sanctuary (safe city) encampments. Drug users shoot up right out in the open in these places and in transit stations. And the population, which includes school children, is exposed to this and has walk through it daily.
A 60 Minutes investigation revealed that nearly one in four Australian women between age 35 and 59 drink excessively – far more than Australian men. Intoxicated mothers then get behind the wheel endangering themselves, other drivers and their children. 5,500 people in Australia die of alcohol-related illness and injury in Australia each year, besides the highway deaths. One of the leading causes of death among middle-aged women, suicide, is increasingly linked to alcohol consumption. Dr. Janice Withnall explained the reasons here.
Persecution of Christians and Jews: The Satanic Temple is threatening to sue the state of Arkansas over the installation of a Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the state capitol.
A Michigan township changed its zoning laws to prevent a Christian school from entering the community, and the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case against this action.
In a meeting with Nigerian Pres. Muhammad Buhari, Pres. Trump brought up the serious persecution of Christians in Nigeria, saying “we can’t allow this to happen.” Days before Buhari’s visit, 19 Christians were killed after a Muslim opened fire in a church. Buhari’s Fulani kin are responsible for hundreds of deaths already this year, attacking villages and forcing thousands to flee homes and farms.
Israel is persecuted for defending itself against terrorism, yet those who mean to do them harm are defended as the victims. These so-called “victims” are teaching their children to kill Jews and Christians. Here’s a video.
And here’s a video at a mosque in Canada where children are practicing beheading non-Muslims. Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau has a long record of supporting the Islamist cause.
In Egypt, Coptic Christians are being persecuted. One resident said, “Many Muslim young men from our village and villages nearby gathered in front of the church building and began pelting it with stones and bricks while shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ (Allah is greater), and ‘We don’t want a church in our village.’” Windows and a door were smashed and some of the church’s contents destroyed. They also pelted Coptic-owned houses next to the building.
“Palestinian” President M. Abbas’ blamed the Jews for the Holocaust, causing a backlash from international leaders. With the rampant anti-Semitism practiced in some of those countries, why are they suddenly condemning Abbas’ remarks? It’s because they want the two-state “peace” agreement to be reached. Some Arab nations are even telling Abbas that he must sign the upcoming peace proposal from the US or step down.
Doctrines of demons (1 Timothy 4:1): In San Francisco, California hundreds flocked to a cathedral’s ‘Beyoncé Mass,’ blending her music with scripture readings and communion. Beyoncé has some of the most X-rated song lyrics ever heard.
At a Vatican conference, invited pop star Katy Perry joined a discussion on “Impacting Children’s Health through Meditation Globally” with her mentor, Bob Roth, CEO of David Lynch Foundation. Roth is also mentor to Oprah and Dr. Oz on transcendental meditation. Roth’s organization gave out “meditating eye” charm bangles and a book promoting transcendental meditation at the beginning of the conference. In Katy Perry’s “Bon Appétit” music video, she promotes cannibalism (Marina Abramovic style), with clear connections to occult practices of certain Democrats in D.C.
So-called “artist” Marina Abramovic’s spirit cooking, cannibalistic art and performances that these politicians and celebrities flock to are the stuff of nightmares! So is the “art” that DC lobbyist Tony Podesta and his brother (Hillary’s campaign manager) John Podesta collect. An article a while back spoke of DC Democrat politicians coming to visit Tony’s house to see it. It’s full of paintings, etc., of half nude children—even being held in bondage, and demonic sculptures that, once seen, you can never un-see.
A study released by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) found that a majority of religious groups support same-sex marriage.
A group of Catholic bishops called Pres. Trump’s travel ban on Muslim countries known for terrorism “blatant religious discrimination.” Yet when Obama issued a travel ban on these same countries, there was silence. The RCC’s catechism #841 regards Muslims as first in the Abrahamic faith that worships God. Yet the God of the Bible is not worshiped in Islam, which began in the 7th century AD. It’s the RCC that practices religious discrimination against Protestants. Its Canon #9 curses anyone who says Christians are justified by grace through faith in Christ alone.
Leftist indoctrination and destabilization agendas—plural: The globalist Marxist pope is calling for worldwide gun confiscation, except for the UN.
The last stages in the fall of nations have always followed the same pattern we see in Isaiah 3. And the effeminizing of men is one of them. Brown University in Rhode Island says it’s “investing in creating safe spaces for men to unpack all of the things they have learned about masculinity and what it means to be a man.” Their goal is to “help those socialized as men to unlearn some of the notions” regarding gender.
The University of Texas is treating masculinity as a mental health problem. The program is predicated on a critique of so-called “restrictive masculinity.” The program argues that men suffer when they’re told to “act like a man” or when encouraged to fulfill traditional gender roles, such as being “successful” or “the breadwinner.”
Penn State University’s Outing Club (after 98 years on campus and despite zero injuries over the past four years) is being banned from going on university-sanctioned outings because the school says it’s too risky. Past events have included hiking, canoeing, kayaking, trail building and camping.
Dr. Singh, a clinical technician who works for the U.K.’s government-run health care system, National Health Service (NHS), which fought and won in court to end little Alfie’s life, considers the starving to death of Alfie not killing him, just “redirecting care.”
Facebook has enlisted leftist Eric Holder’s law firm to “advise” on bias against conservatives. That’s enlisting wolves to guard the sheep. But it’s what we’ve learned to expect from the left.
From the Geller Report: “AmazonSmile offers charitable donations only for leftists. The American Freedom Defense Initiative, The Alliance for Defending Freedom, and Jihad Watch are registered 501c3 organizations, yet they’re banned from AmazonSmile. Amazon clearly only considers Leftist charitable organizations to be charitable organizations at all. This is all part of the ongoing attempt to drive all those who dissent from the far-left agenda entirely out of the public square.”
Also from the Geller Report: “CNN’s list of “25 influential American Muslims” is a rogue’s gallery of Jew-haters and jihad enablers. Where is CNN’s 25 influential American Jews list? Its 25 influential American Christians list? And the titles they choose for each person show CNN’s subversive perspective… Couldn’t CNN have come up with a list of 25 patriotic American Muslims who are actually contributing positively to society?”
On May Day, also National Worker’s Rights Day, Anarcho-Communists made mayday mayhem in several countries. The riots in France were the most violent. To learn about the origins and current practices on May Day, including this “workers’ rights” day, see “The Very Scary Month of May” at raptureready.com.
In San Diego, California, MAAC Charter School in Chula Vista (chartered by the Sweetwater Union High School District), a huge mural was painted on school property depicting an Aztec warrior spearing Pres. Trump’s decapitated, bloody head. This monstrosity had to have taken quite a while to complete, so school officials had to be aware of it. Now they’re facing outrage and controversy over it—rightfully so.
In the US, due to limited funds, Health and Human Services is unable to keep up with minors that smugglers brought to this country literally en masse from Central America during the Obama administration in 2013, that were then placed with sponsors. From Oct. to Dec. 2017, check-up calls to 7,635 minors by HHS found that nearly 1,500 of them are missing. Slave trade? Sex trafficking?
Sweden’s Minister of Social Affairs, Annika Strandhäll, blamed the country’s elderly rather than the massive influx of Muslim migrants for overloading the healthcare system. I’m sure those now elderly citizens of Sweden had money taken out of their paychecks during their working years to pay for future senior citizen care, just as they do in the US when Medicare is taken out of workers’ pay. So much for honoring the elderly as the Bible commands. Globalists would rather they die to decrease the human population.
In socialist Venezuela, its starving citizens are faced with a staggering inflation rate that is already by far the world’s highest, and it keeps going up. It spiked from 4,966% to nearly 18,000% percent in just March and April. “There is no difference between communism and socialism except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism – by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide” – Ayn Rand.
Stuart Varney speaks about the evils of Socialism on a Fox News Business Report here. He’s lived under its policies before and knows what he’s talking about.
China’s leader is pushing Marxism as the true path. Of course, this agenda is also being pushed in Europe and the US under the guise of democracy. As I’ve said, Marxism, Socialism, and Communism are in the same family.
In Finland, in a case that has triggered public outrage, a top Finnish court upheld a ruling that sex between a Muslim migrant and a 10-year-old girl didn’t constitute rape.
The “Peace” Proposal: Reports are saying that US officials told Israel’s Defense Minister Liberman during his visit to Washington last week that the Trump administration will ask Israel to withdraw from four Arab neighborhoods in east Jerusalem, which will likely become the capital of a future “Palestinian state.” The Trump administration is denying these reports, saying the plan is not complete but in its final stages. Supposedly, the plan will be revealed shortly after the May 14 opening of the US embassy on Israel’s 70th anniversary. The president said he may attend the ceremony.
Wars and rumors of wars: In Israel, “Things are about to get biblical,” Rabbi Winston said. “Some people thought the Bible was dead…That is clearly not the case… soon that will be clear to everyone.” He believes Iran’s military presence is the “match” that will set off an even greater explosion in Syria.
Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu has been authorized to declare war in extreme situations after only consulting the defense minister rather than waiting on a cabinet vote.
In Israel, the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee member Nachman Shai said, “Israel clearly senses we are headed toward a new battle, liable to unexpected dimensions.” The intelligence news service, DEBKAfile, said Israel “expects war at any moment, but no one knows where, when, or what form” it will take.
We’re all aware of last Sunday’s airstrikes on military bases in Syria using bunker-buster bombs. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied responsibility; however, reports of those in the know such as Behold Israel’s Amir Tsarfati said missiles had recently been delivered from Iran to those locations and placed underground. Nothing much gets past Israel, if anything. Their intelligence is outstanding.
Israel’s PM Netanyahu just revealed that Israel’s Mossad was able to get inside Iran and take many thousands of documents, etc., that reveal Iran’s continuing intent to develop nuclear weapons (despite the Obama administration’s worthless Iran nuclear deal that only served to net Iran tons of money—the nation that has constantly shouted death to Israel and America). Yet world leaders are trying to talk Pres. Trump into continuing with it instead of changing it or scrapping it and imposing sanctions on the terrorist country. Even Iran’s citizens are trying to rise up against this evil regime.
Syrian regime forces are taking over the last pocket of resistance in southern Damascus.
Hamas’s armed wing, said it holds Israel responsible for an explosion that killed several of its members on Saturday in the Gaza Strip, and vowed to exact revenge. Israeli officials denied the allegation.
In recent days, “Palestinian” protesters have used flaming objects attached to kites to set fire to agricultural land just over the Gaza border in Israel. In preparation for Friday’s new attacks (that have been going on since March 30), Gaza’s flaming-kite squadrons built hundreds of flimsy-framed sails with tails meant to carry incendiary devices, such as rags soaked in gasoline. Their plan was to fly them in swarms into Israel with the goal of igniting dry fields of rural communities on the other side of the border fence. They counted on help from the heavy heat wave to fan the fires. But the plan largely failed because of a “quirk of nature” – the wind blew the other way. Hmm…
In another ironic twist, during Friday’s mayhem directed at Israel, the Gaza protesters crazily set fire to the Gaza side of the Kerem Shalom goods crossing, igniting gas and fuel pipes that serve the 2 million residents of Gaza. Wonder what could have made them do that?
The US Navy said it will re-establish its Second Fleet in the Atlantic, a response to Russia’s stepped up naval activity in recent years and its increasing aggression. NATO is also planning to set up a new Joint Forces Command covering much of the same region.
In the prophesied rise of the Kings of the East, China is continuing to build up its military. It has just installed cruise missiles on South China Sea outposts.
Matthew 24:6-12: “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars…For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
In John 14:27 Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
