There’s Delusion and Collusion, But Miracles in the Mayhem
The death toll in the California wildfires now stands at 74 as of this writing (71 from Paradise, 2 from Malibu and 1 from Agoura Hills), with 1,011 people still missing from Paradise.
A Miracle from God in the Raging Fire: In Magalia (east of Helltown and northeast of Paradise – see map at this link), residents and church members who had gathered at Magalia Pines Baptist Church to leave in a convoy of cars found themselves surrounded by flames, so they ran into the church, huddled and prayed. Despite their surroundings being leveled to the ground, the church remained standing, with fall leaves still on the trees.
Nature worshiper extraordinaire, California Gov. Jerry Brown’s decision to veto a 2016 bill aimed at mitigating wildfire risks from power lines and utility equipment has become the focus of critics as fires rage across the state, scorching hundreds of thousands of acreage. Brown’s critics are pointing to the two-year-old veto as news reports suggest power lines may have sparked the deadliest wildfire in California’s history.
Extreme Weather: Winter appears to have arrived early.
In Texas on Tuesday, the earliest snowfall ever observed in the city of Houston and surrounding areas occurred. San Antonio International Airport recorded a low of 23 degrees Friday morning, shattering the old record low of 28 degrees 102 years ago. It also ties the 4th coldest November low temperature on record.
One of the first big storms of the season moved across the eastern half of the US, leaving 8 people dead due to weather-related incidents and closing schools as the freakish weather brought snowfall as far south as Alabama. In New York, commuters were stranded for hours in the snow.
A violent wind storm hit Canada’s East Coast, triggering the largest waves on the planet. Newfoundland was hit with hurricane-force winds and snow. The wind and waves were so strong, the island shook.
Torrential rain, snow storms, winds and flooding hit the Middle East. Main access routes were closed in Tel Aviv. Torrential rains swept through Jordan, sparking widespread flooding. Flash floods tore through Lebanon, where several rivers burst their banks, cutting highways off. Howling winds swept away tents in refugee camps, and there were warnings of a major snowstorm. Close to a year’s worth of rain fell in Kuwait, triggering severe flooding.
Earthquakes in diverse places
In Pennsylvania, Tuesday was the first time in 10 years that an earthquake swarm rattled northern York County.
Five earthquakes hit in the Pacific Ocean off the Oregon coast Thursday night and Friday morning; the largest was a 4.5.
There were a number of earthquakes in the ocean in diverse places this week that registered over 5.0 and over 6.0.
Earthquakes occurred around the Ring of Fire on Friday affecting Indonesia and Japan, Solomon Islands, and others. No lives were lost, but residents felt the tremors.
In Italy, one of the world’s most dangerous supervolcanoes appears to be accumulating magma as it transitions to a pre-eruption state, a study has found. Scientists do not say that a large eruption is imminent—but they do suggest that current conditions at Campi Flegrei indicate one could happen at “some undetermined point in the future.” Undetermined? That’s an understatement. Guess they haven’t read the events prophesied for the Tribulation.
California creeping: Mud pots and volcanoes are common but normally stationary objects. No one has ever seen a moving mud pot before. That’s why scientists took notice when this rotten-eggs smelling mud pot began to move sometime between 2015 and 2016. It’s migrating across the state at a pace of 20 feet a year. So far, it’s carved a 24,000-square-foot basin out of the earth, and it’s set to continue its crusade until whatever’s driving it dies out. Scientists currently have no real idea why it’s moving or if it can be stopped.
Signs in the Sun?
God is in control, not man. We’re seeing the beginning of the prophesied birth pangs. Is this one of them? They’ve converged as in no other time in history. “The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age,” wrote Dr. Tony Phillips 6 weeks ago. Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018 and Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding. Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center said, “High above Earth’s surface, near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy. If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold. It could happen in a matter of months.”
Parents of children who had a horrifying polio-like illness are accusing the Centers for Disease Control of hiding the deaths of two children who suffered from the condition. The parents say by not publicly acknowledging the two deaths, the agency is intentionally downplaying the severity of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), a disease that paralyzes healthy children in a matter of hours. Twenty-six states have confirmed cases of AFM, and 11 additional states have possible cases.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are still working on a nearly year-long investigation into a “multidrug-resistant” turkey salmonella outbreak that has nearly doubled since July. As of November 5, 2018, 164 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading have been reported from 35 states. 63 people have been hospitalized, and one death has been reported from California. The USDA is being urged to name the turkey brands linked to the outbreak.
Apostasy in the Churches
At the United Church of Canada, so-called reverend Gretta Vosper, an atheist, is allowed to keep her position at a church that calls itself Christian.
There are many stories of miracles that occurred during Israel’s wars of defense from enemies that seek its destruction. Here is yet another one. On Monday, a Hamas missile struck a bus near the Gaza border. Fifty young Israeli soldiers had just exited before it exploded. The Arab-Israeli driver was treated for shock but was uninjured. A bystander was the only injury. He was in critical condition, but is doing better after two surgeries.
In Uganda, an arson attack on a boys’ boarding school dormitory left 11 students dead and 20 others injured. The dormitory’s doors were deliberately padlocked, trapping dozens inside. Expelled students have been blamed. Fire outbreaks at schools, mostly dormitories, have become more frequent. Police investigations take years and are rarely concluded, while prosecutions of culprits for such attacks on schools and other targets are also rare.
In Mogadishu, Somalia, 52 people are known dead and 100 injured after a Muslim terrorist attack. Since 2006, the Al-Qaeda affiliated group has carried out repeated attacks, killing international aid workers, journalists, civilian leaders and peacekeepers, as well as Somalia’s government and military targets. It wants to turn Somalia into an Islamic state.
Days of Noah and Lot Returned
Céline Dion starred in a bizarre, creepy ad to launch her gender-neutral clothing line. As a children’s lullaby plays faintly and eerily in the background, she “escapes” to a newborn hospital nursery, blows black glitter into the air, changing all the babies’ outfits from pink and blue to gender-neutral black and white. One baby’s shirt says “New Order.” She says that children need to decide for themselves as quickly as possible…
The midterms are being called a “Rainbow Wave” due to the number of LGBTQ etc., candidates who won their seat (161: 160 are Democrats, and one is Independent). Don’t believe it? See for yourself at this link. For the first time, a Florida city (Wilton Manors) has elected an all-LGBTQ City Commission. The heavily gay community is the second in the country, after Palm Springs, California, to elect an all LGBTQ city council or commission.
State universities are compelling professors to use the language of transgender ideology (ze, zer, etc.). A tactic followed by all totalitarian regimes: To control people’s thoughts, begin by controlling their speech. Require them to verbally affirm the regime’s dogmas—even if they disagree with those dogmas. Anyone who has read books like George Orwell’s 1984 is familiar with the technique of coerced speech..
In yet more scandal, the Vatican suspended a vote on a commission to hold pedophile priests accountable. The US Conference of Catholic bishops delayed the vote pending Vatican approval.
Although investigators found accusations of child sexual abuse against Archbishop McCarrick both “credible and substantiated,” the Catholic University of Notre Dame says it will not rescind an honorary degree it awarded to McCarrick in 2008. Further, the university’s president Rev. John Jenkins says it is not helpful to view child sex abusers as “monsters.” He’s certainly not reading the Bible to see what God has to say in Matthew 18:6-10 about such wickedness against children.
Planned Parenthood’s new president, Dr. Leana Wen, said that the abortion organization offers “live-saving care.” The organization aborted 6,803,782 babies between 1978 and 2014, and aborted 328,348 unborn babies between 2015-2016. Saving lives? NO.
A closely-watched abortion trial concluded Wednesday in Texas with the abortion industry arguing that they should be allowed to continue dismembering living, second-trimester unborn babies while their hearts still are beating. “At the end of the day, the abortion industry was forced to graphically describe the draconian and violent process of taking a child’s life through dismemberment, while also defending the practice they claim that Texas has no right to prohibit.”
The liberal New York Times accidentally said the truth when reporting on spina bifida surgery of babies in the womb. They actually used the word “baby.” Here are the words: “The prenatal surgery involved opening the uterus, exposing the spina bifida and closing the defect without delivering the baby.”
Having an abortion causes emotional problems, something Planned Parenthood or virulent feminists won’t tell you. On a recent radio talk show, the phone lines lit up and stayed lit up with people calling in to talk about how they regretted having an abortion. People were weeping over having an abortion, not shouting in pride for having one.
Lawlessness will abound
Republican Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin blamed the continuing occurrence of U.S. mass shootings on America’s culture that celebrates death. “When a culture is surrounded by, inundated by, and rewards things that celebrate death—whether it is zombies in TV shows, number of abortions—that we indiscriminately think is just OK,” Bevin explained. “These are drips, drips, drips on the stones of the psyches of young generations that are growing up in a society that increasingly says this is normal and OK.” [I would add: an education system messing with children’s minds, divorce rate, lack of supervision in the home, violent video games – and most important of all, lack of teaching biblical values].
Beast Technology/Surveillance Society
Britain’s biggest employer organization and main trade union body have sounded the alarm over the prospect of British companies implanting staff with microchips to improve security.
Taking a cue from China, Venezuela is rolling out a new ID card manufactured in China that can track, reward, and punish citizens.
Ireland is probing a possible UFO sighting after reports from multiple pilots of seeing multiple objects of bright lights and high speed following the same sort of trajectory.
Islamization of the Nations
Undercover reporting shows Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) teaching Muslim migrants to lie about trauma they’ve experienced, and about being Christians in order to gain asylum status in Europe. The UN is no doubt complicit in this. The implications of such immigration is far reaching. Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components begin to creep in as well.
Another way of taking over is by taking office: Ilhan Omar, one of the first of two Muslim women to be elected to Congress (Democrat Party), openly sides with Hamas against Israel and claims that Jews possess the supernatural ability to hypnotize the world as they unfurl their “evil.” Both she and the other Muslim woman elected to Congress, Rashida Tlaib, at some point during their rise in electoral politics deluded voters — especially Jewish voters — to believe that they held moderate views on Israel.
After being elected, both women reversed their positions and now say they’re committed to sanctioning the Jewish state. America’s first two Muslim congresswomen are now both on record as appearing to oppose Israel’s right to exist. And not one Democratic Party leader has condemned the growing hatred in their midst.
“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:14).
Last Days Traitors and their global agenda
A report published by the New York Times claimed Facebook hired Definers Public Affairs, an opposition research company led by Romney-Ryan 2012 and Jeb Bush 2016 alumni, to discredit critics of Facebook, including conservative commentators Diamond and Silk. “I learned about this relationship when I read this New York Times piece yesterday,” Zuckerberg declared. “I have tremendous respect for George Soros.”
Yet again, sanctuary cities protect criminals, putting citizens in danger. Illegal alien Luis Perez, 23 (a recipient of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Child Arrivals—DACA program in 2012 and 2014) was jailed for aggravated assault and child abuse. Federal immigration officials placed a detainer on Perez while in the New Jersey jail, but jail officials did not honor the request and did not let ICE know when he was released. Now three people are dead, murdered by him.
Illegal immigrant families shattered the old records and snuck into the US at record rates in October. 23,121 were caught jumping the border last month, 40% higher than any month on record. It’s also nearly 400% more than the number recorded just a year ago.
In Arizona, Border Patrol agents caught 450 migrants, mostly from Central America, who illegally crossed the border on Tuesday and Wednesday. They took advantage of weaknesses in older technology to burrow under or cross over the barrier.
WATCH the video at this link. Illegal immigrants, who are part of the caravan trying to cross into the United States along the southern border, attacked locals in a Mexico border town. And law enforcement just stood by and watched.
John Loudon, former Missouri senator, spent the whole night in Palm Beach County watching Democrats steal the Florida election. He witnessed thousands of ballots not counted then moved, unsecured out of view of observers to be filled out later by unknown people. Loudon witnessed clerks coming in and out of a back door where there were trucks at an unsecured rear dock. When Loudon called out the infraction to the SOE, she threatened to throw him and other Republicans out of the facility.
More Democrat fraud in Florida. Democrats urged voters to submit absentee ballots after Election Day, using an official form that had been altered to make it look like they were doing so within the legal deadline, hoping a judge would later allow the votes. The altered forms surfaced in Broward, Santa Rosa, Citrus and Okaloosa counties and were reported to federal prosecutors to review for possible election fraud as Florida counties complete a required recount in three top races.
We knew this was coming if the Democrat Deep State won the House. House Democrats are planning an all-out assault to try to take down the president (and this nation to turn it into their globalist gulag that they’ve deceived their followers into believing will be a utopia).
Gay liberal male parents kicked out their adopted son because he wore a Trump 2020 MAGA hat. And what in the world is the man talking about in this video? Since when is Trump responsible for the death of 60 million people?
Globalist French President Emmanuel Macron denounced nationalism (advocacy of political independence for a particular country) during an Armistice Day centennial observance in Paris. He actually called it treason.
France’s Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire has called for Europe to become an “empire” to compete with the US after its president Emmanuel Macron called for an EU army to defend against the NATO ally. The European Union has become a gaggle of ungrateful, Left-wing pretenders who have taken advantage of American generosity for decades. Following in the footsteps of Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is channeling her monstrous predecessor, Adolph Hitler, in calling for a European army so the European Union can fulfill his objective of conquering the continent while getting rid of the US military presence there.
Hatred of Christianity
First some good news: Doctors have verified that a brain tumor in a California man vanished the day before surgery as church members prayed for a miracle healing. As the article points out, “We live in the Church Age, not in the time of signs, miracles and wonders. Our apostle Paul tells us that we walk by faith, and not by sight. But the God that we love and serve is still in the miracle business, and every once in a while, something like this happens and it is truly amazing.”
Christian student senator Isabella Chow at the University of California, Berkeley, is being ousted from her position after abstaining from a resolution that condemns the Trump administration for basically saying there are only two genders. Chow expressed love and respect for LGBT’s but said as a Christian she could not vote for the resolution. Teddy Lake, the student senator who introduced the resolution, labeled her as a bigot and called her statement, harmful and disturbing. “Perhaps what most offends me, though, is Senator Chow’s outrageous ask that we, as a Senate class, respect her “beliefs” as she does ours.
He said Chow’s beliefs were not beliefs at all but hateful prejudices that deserve nothing less than the strongest condemnation. “I have no obligation to entertain or engage with individuals who deny my right to exist loudly and proudly as a member of the LGBTQ+ community,” he said. Hundreds of students protested Chow and even had a large banner that said, “Senator Chow Resign now.”
Jaylani Hussein, Executive director from CAIR Minnesota (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and Linda Gordon author of “The Second Coming of the KKK” joined up at St. Cloud State University in hopes of playing on the sympathies of the ignorant. About 30 people showed up. They tried to link white Protestant Christians to the KKK. Anyone who has studied real history knows that the Democrat Party began the KKK.
To better control the growth and influence of Christianity, the Chinese government plans to incorporate Buddhist scripture and Confucian teachings into the Bible and edit worship songs to include Chinese characteristics.
First the good news: The US rightfully plans to vote “no” on the anti-Israel annual resolution at the UN that condemns Israel’s alleged “occupation” of the Golan Heights. In the past, the US abstained in the vote, but US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, explained why this year the American delegation would vote against the resolution. Read more at this link.
Every once in a blue moon in these last days, some measure of justice is served. “Since the Women’s March was founded in 2017 before President Trump had actually done anything, praise has been heaped upon it merely for existing and being made up of women. But now that the anti-Semitic beliefs of some of the group’s founders are finally starting to get recognition, some of those who formerly praised the organization are now pulling back.”
Many universities have become hotbeds of anti-Semitism by backing academic boycotts of Israel.
In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel condemns the rise in anti-Semitism in her country, yet she is the one who helped it to rise by bringing in Muslims who despise Jews.
Wars and Rumors of Wars
In Israel, at least 108 people were hospitalized for wounds and shock caused by the two-day massive rocket bombardment of Israeli towns by Gazan terror groups.
Despite Hamas terrorists who rule Gaza firing 460 rockets and mortars into Israel this week, Israel continues delivering supplies into Gaza intended for its citizens (Hamas cares nothing for its own citizens, using funds for terrorism instead). Five gas tankers, 30 fuel tankers and hundreds of other trucks with humanitarian goods delivered their goods to Gaza. Yet the world at large calls Israel the bad guys for defending itself.
Regarding the Gaza rocket fire into Israel this week and Israel’s response to it, Israel’s ambassador to the UN said, “Certain morally bankrupt members of the Security Council will jump to blame Israel, and others who pretend to be objective will call for restraint on both sides. But let me be clear: there is no both sides. There is Hamas that attacks and fires over 460 missiles at civilians, and there is Israel that protects its people. The Security Council must condemn Hamas for its aggressive assault and finally designate it as a terrorist organization.”
Lil’ Kim acting true to form: A U.S. think tank has identified at least 13 of an estimated 20 undeclared missile bases inside North Korea.
The Islamic Iranian regime is on the verge of collapse due to continuing US sanctions. Russia and Turkey aren’t faring very well either these days. That’s all the more reason why this evil big three will attack Israel for plunder sooner rather than later (Ezekiel 38-39). But we know how that’s prophesied to end.
Confusion and disillusion: Will it lead to delusion?
Israel’s PM Netanyahu is under fire for going along with another Gaza ceasefire. He defended his decision by saying Hamas ‘begged’ to stop fighting (the one they started by firing rockets on Israel). He said he cannot detail Israel’s plans for the future regarding the situation in Gaza.
There are angry calls for an early election in Israel. This is a very interesting development for those who know Bible prophecy. With the withdrawal of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman’s Party over yet another ceasefire with Hamas despite its latest brutal rocket and mortar attack against Israel, Netanyahu is left with a one-seat majority in Israel’s parliament. Netanyahu took over as Defense Minister and warns of repeating what occurred in 1992, in which a right-wing party left the coalition, Labor won the subsequent election, and Yitzhak Rabin (prime minister at the time) signed the disastrous Oslo Accords with Yassar Arafat.
Before the Oslo Accords, Arafat and his PLO were considered a terrorist organization. The Oslo Accords were a first step, so to speak, establishing a timetable for the Middle East peace process. The PLO became the Palestinian Authority tasked with limited self-governance of parts of the West Bank and Gaza. A permanent peace deal within five years was to create two states, side-by-side. But the peace that was supposed to occur after the accords were signed did not happen, and the accords number 1 and the later number 2 fell apart, leaving the two-state solution unconfirmed.
From Israel Unwired, Sept 2018: Immediately after the Oslo accords were signed, Arafat gave a speech in Johannesburg, South Africa. There, he basically said that the Oslo accords were just a deal to weaken Israel. Then, later on, they would destroy Israel when they had enough strength. He compared it to a treaty that Mohammed made centuries ago, with that exact same strategy. – source
It’s not a “Palestinian” state side by side with Israel that these Israel haters want. It’s the complete annihilation of Israel.
“They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace” (Jeremiah 6:14).
That wicked one, the Antichrist (the first beast), is out there hiding in plain sight, obviously, since the hour is so late, and will soon rule over the global government that the teeth gnashers are so eager to bring about. He will confirm a false peace covenant with Israel.
You cannot confirm what doesn’t already exist. Whether it will be the Oslo Accords or another peace covenant that is initially rejected but later confirmed is anyone’s guess.
It is the confirming of this covenant that starts the Tribulation, “the time of Jacob’s trouble.” But it won’t just be a time of trouble for Israel; all those left behind after the rapture will have to endure it.
To those who are in Christ: “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 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, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11).
Come, Lord Jesus!
