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).
