The Coming Storm: It’s Not Just the Weather
In the US, the arctic blast that affected the Midwest to the East Coast this past week pales in comparison to what’s coming this week. This polar vortex will send “temperatures 20 to 40 degrees F below normal across most of the Midwest around the middle of this week,” and 10 to 20 degrees below normal for other places. Look out for elderly neighbors, keep your livestock warm in the barn and keep pets inside!
The New York Times is pushing the theory that cold snaps are becoming more frequent because of global warming. Many scientists disagree. “Such claims make no sense and are inconsistent with observations and the best science.”
In Brazil, heavy rains are posing a problem in the rescue efforts after a dam collapsed at an iron ore mine. At least 34 people have been confirmed dead and hundreds are missing.
In Indonesia, the death toll is rising due to flooding and landslides that beset many parts of country. The latest deluge has claimed the lives of 59 people and forced thousands to flee from their homes.
Deadly storms slammed Italy, the Balkan Peninsula, and Turkey with heavy rain and snow into Saturday.
In Australia, the searing record-breaking heatwave has caused mass animal deaths and roads to melt as this drought-stricken country heads toward possibly its hottest January on record.
Earthquakes in Diverse Places
Earthquakes of 6.0+ are increasing, making the magnitude 5 and under quakes not worth reporting unless they do significant damage, or are unusual.
Northern Israel was hit by what must have been a shallow 3.6 earthquake late Thursday night that sounded to residents like explosions. “It felt like a bomb went off near the house,” one resident said.
Here are the 6.0+ quakes this week as of this writing:
>A 6.7 earthquake hit the coast of north-central Chile on January 19 that caused two heart attack deaths. The quake shook houses and caused landslides in the region’s mountainous terrain.
>A 6.0 off the coast of Indonesia on January 21, and a 6.4 on the 22nd.
>A 6.7 in the ocean southeast of Africa on January 22, the third 6+ earthquake within 24 hours.
>A 6.0 struck New Zealand on January 23; it must have been very deep not to have caused damage.
>A 6.2 off the coast of New Guinea on January 25.
In Washington State, the Mt. St. Helen’s volcano is rumbling again with 40 earthquakes since January 1. According to a documentary, scientists are closely monitoring a lava dome rising at five meters a day.
Bali’s Agung volcano flared up on January 22, accompanied by an 2,000 meter high ash column.
Iniquity (Wickedness, Lawlessness) Will Abound
In Northern Ireland, the Irish Republican Army (IRA) dissidents are suspected of being behind a car bombing outside a courthouse. People were evacuated just in time before the bomb detonated, after receiving a warning. There were no reports of injuries. Two men in their 20s were arrested.
The potentially deadly superbug Pseudomonas aeruginosa infected US patients from multiple states after they crossed the border for cheaper surgery in Mexico.
US Border Patrol agents say they have discovered a man carrying a flesh-eating bacteria who was among hundreds of migrants detained at the US-Mexico border.
According to a small US study, ambulance oxygen tanks are likely to carry the superbug MRSA.
France’s national health agency Anses says it has found chemicals in babies’ disposable diapers that exceed safety levels. Anses said its nappy tests were the first by any national health and safety body in the world.
In England, a new five-year plan to tackle antibiotic resistance will be unveiled. Overuse of antibiotics has made infections more difficult to treat; thousands die each year due to drug-resistant superbugs.
In the Congo, since the start of the latest Ebola epidemic, the total number of cases is 715, including 666 confirmed and 49 probable. 40 new cases have been diagnosed in the past ten days.
Days of Noah and Lot Returned
>Attack on the Unborn
For the third year in a row, President Trump offered his support for the March for Life in a video address to the largest pro-life rally in the nation by promising to veto any pro-abortion legislation that comes across his desk. Despite this, individual states are determined to continue sacrificing babies in and from the womb.
New York’s Governor Cuomo lit the spires of One World Trade Center in pink to celebrate the passing of a bill that enables abortion up to 9 months gestation and limits help for babies born alive in botched abortions. Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire pointed out that in New York it’s now legal to kill a fully developed, pain-capable infant up to the very moment of birth, yet there’s no death penalty for criminals. He detailed what occurs in a late-term abortion when the baby is injected with chemicals. The mother waits till the next day, then an ultrasound is performed to see if the baby is dead yet. Death can take up to 24 hours while the baby suffers in agony, even requiring another injection.
Walsh said, “Governor Andrew Cuomo, a fake Catholic who would be excommunicated if his bishop had half a spine, decided to celebrate this gruesome and genocidal law by ordering that the World Trade Center be lit pink. That building, you may recall, was built as a monument to the 3,000 people who died on 9-11. Now New York’s despicable governor has turned it into a celebration of death. There is a race among Democrat politicians to see who can be the most depraved, cynical, and inhumane, and it seems that Cuomo has just surged ahead.”
Taking a cue from radical New York Democrats, Vermont is on track to make abortion up to birth a constitutional right. And in Iowa, a judge struck down a state law Tuesday that banned a woman from obtaining an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected (except under extenuating circumstances), claiming it violates the state’s constitution. If you saw a certain late-term abortion video that is circulating, you should be horrified. The doctor crushed the baby’s skull.
On January 17, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals stated that undercover video footage filmed by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), which showed Planned Parenthood employees discussing the sale of tissue from aborted fetuses, was “authentic” and “not deceptively edited.” WARNING: aborted baby parts are shown.
The Roe v. Wade film (which exposes how people lied, the media lied, and how the courts were manipulated to pass a law that has since killed over 60 million babies in America) has been forbidden by Facebook to run ads on its platform. Facebook says it’s a political ad. No, Facebook; it’s a moral issue.
>Indoctrination of the Children
Aside from the psychological damage now becoming apparent, hormone blockers administered before and during puberty cause dramatically lower bone density, cripplingly painful autoimmune disorders and sterility. Yet all of this has been pushed aside to satisfy a radical transgender agenda above all else.
California is moving to mandate that schools teach kindergarteners there are 15 genders. Read and listen here.
In Canada, a Catholic school board caved into LGBT pressure and allowed a book back on library shelves in elementary schools for ages 6 and under that explores homosexuality and bisexuality and depicts two boys kissing onstage, one of whom is wearing a dress. What’s further concerning is that the school board never objected to ages as young as 7 reading the book.
>And more indoctrination
A UK supermarket, Aldi, has altered the mother-child parking symbol to make it ‘gender neutral’ and not offensive to ‘non-binary’ shoppers.
The National Institutes of Health is spending over $450,000 of taxpayer dollars to provide “transgender” women of color financial tips and “gender transition supports.” Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) began the project.
Former Democrat president Jimmy Carter said he believes Jesus would approve of gay marriage.
In California, state Senator and Senate Judiciary Committee chair Hannah-Beth Jackson banned the use of he or she pronouns during committee hearings.
Many False Prophets Shall Rise and Shall Deceive Many
So-called “Christian” pastor, Jacqui Lewis, spoke at the Women’s March. She said, “There’s all kinds of Christians, but I’m the kind that believes that there’s more than one path to God, the kind that believes that every single body, no matter who you love and how you look, is created by God exactly as you are.” She also said that one thing the movements have in common is the enemy of “white supremacy.”
Laxmi Narayan Tripathi (born a male and now calls himself a female) is worshiped by Hindus as a demi-god at the huge religious festival on the banks of the Ganges river. Up to 150 million people are expected to attend by the time the festival ends in March. Many at the festival cheer Tripathi for “reclaiming” the lost place in Hinduism for India’s “third gender,” known as the hijras, worshipped as demi-gods for thousands of years. In 2014 India’s Supreme Court officially recognized a third gender.
The Satanic Temple, founded in 2012 by Lucien Greaves and Malcolm Jarry, has since spread to dozens of chapters across the US and Europe. Its evolution is chronicled in new documentary Hail Satan? directed by Penny Lane, which has its world premiere this month at Sundance Film Festival. The film allegedly tries to show that these are just misunderstood nice guys.
Persecution of All Who Call on the Name of Christ
In Iowa, Michael Mial, a psychiatrist employed by the Iowa Department of Human Services, who was fired for signing his emails with “In Christ,” lost his First Amendment lawsuit against the state. Mial had been hired as a psychiatric security specialist and was in his 6-month probationary period when he began using “In Christ” in the personalized signature block that appeared in internal emails sent to a handful of other employees.
From Canada Free Press: Fueled by mainstream, social media and celebrity Twitter accounts, the hate-spewing progressive-left has “progressed” from mocking and smearing their targeted enemies to having them left vulnerable to potential physical harm. Vicious threats left online for kids caught up in the Catholic Covington High School hoax has forced school administration to have to hire security for their student body due to names and addresses of the innocent school boys being posted online.
From the Daily Wire: The Left spent much of last week attacking the wife of the vice-president because she got a job at a Christian school that follows Christian teaching. By the end of the week, #ExposeChristianSchools was trending on Twitter. Then, on Saturday, a false narrative was quickly constructed claiming that a group of students from a Catholic school harassed and taunted a Native American man. The full video (which mainstream media did not show) proves their claim to be false. Still determined to win even after this, New York Times‘s Dan Levin tweeted that he was writing a piece based on the hashtag #exposeChristianschools.
A prominent left-wing American priest, Fr. Daniel Horan, denounced the Washington March for Life as “repulsive and futile,” calling the pro-life event “basically a gathering for many right-wing anti-abortion hardliners.” The priest praised the pro-abortion Women’s March as consistent with Catholic social teaching. This pro-LGBT priest and professor also called the white Catholic high school boys “racists,” falsely accusing them of taunting a Native American man beating a drum.
In Pakistan, Muslims are still demanding the death of Christian, Asia Bibi, increasing pressure on the government which refuses to let her leave the country. Its top court will now decide her fate.
There are several thousand Christian brethren in Afghanistan. There are no church buildings, and many Christians are cut off from underground networks of believers. They feel isolated and unsure whom to trust.
Persecution of the Jewish People
Staff members and volunteers of a Jewish soup kitchen and food pantry handed out flyers for free food at LaGuardia Airport on Tuesday to federal employees struggling as a result of the ongoing US government shutdown, now in its fourth week. One wonders how many actually respect the Jews who are giving them the food. We pray there are many.
Ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27, three Republican members of Congress introduced a House resolution condemning anti-Semitic and anti-Israel vitriol in the US and worldwide. The resolution calls out both Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan for his extensive record of spewing anti-Jewish rhetoric and Women’s March leader Tamilka Mallory, who refused to condemn Farrakhan, and who attended his annual Saviour’s Day address last year during which the “minister” labeled Jews as “satanic.” The resolution also names Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who both support the anti-Israel BDS movement.
Ilhan Omar, the Muslim Democrat representative of Minnesota, defended her tweet against Israel in which she said, “Israel has hypnotized the world; may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” She pretends to not understand why this would offend Jewish Americans.
The European Union has given over €5 million in grants in 2017-2018 to ten “Palestinian” and European organizations that promote boycotts against Israel despite the EU’s claim to be against the boycotts.
Ireland’s lower parliament voted 78-45, with three abstentions to advance a bill that would criminalize West Bank Jewish settlements.
Promotion of Islam and its Consequences
In a video clip that has recently gone viral, Islamic activist Sharifa Alkhateeb talks extensively about using U.S. public schools to promote Islam and convert America to an Islamic nation.
The Women’s March took place in Washington DC and various other places on January 20. This fiercely anti-Jewish and anti-Israel movement was started by Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour. Two are Muslims with active ties to infamous Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The third, Carmen Perez, is in agreement with the other two. These Muslim women say “Islam improves the status of women.” That is a lie and they know it. Islamist activist Linda Sarsour said ‘my beloved prophet Muhammad was a human rights activist.’ That is as far from the truth as it could possibly get. Here is just a small sample of Qur’an and Hadith verses that prove he wasn’t for human rights at all:
Jews are their worst enemies (Qur’an 5:82), under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims must wage war against and subjugate them under Sharia, denying them basic rights (9:29). “I have been made victorious through terror” (Sahih Bukhari 4:52.220. “I looked into Hell and saw the majority of its people are women” (Sahih Bukhari 3241; Sahih Muslim 2737). “I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah…” (Sahih Muslim 30). “May Allah curse the Jews and Christians…” (Sahih Bukhari 1.8.427).
In Texas, a teacher who is a Muslim, Warren Christopher Clark, went overseas and joined ISIS. He was ultimately captured and spoke about his experience. He says he saw Christians crucified, yet he’s completely unfazed by it.
In Florida, a Muslim scholar who spoke at an Islamic center said “killing homosexuals is the compassionate thing to do.” His use of the word compassion is a ruse to soften the effect of what he’s saying; he’s inciting Muslims to murder homosexuals.
Germany is now sending thousands of Muslim migrants to other EU countries, making them pay for Merkel’s blunders.
In England, in Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan’s London, acid attacks are a frequent occurrence. But when a Muslim gang attacked men coming out of a gay bar, beating them and spraying acid in their faces and eyes, it was reported as homophobic but Islam and terrorism were never mentioned. The men were prosecuted, but the point is that there was a lot of media silence and denial.
In Mali, jihadist terrorists killed 10 Chadian UN peacekeepers and injured at least 25 others in one of the deadliest strikes against the UN mission in the West African country. Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility, saying it was “in reaction” to the visit to Chad by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Chad’s president is resuming diplomatic relations with Israel.
Dozens of Afghan security personnel were killed by Taliban militants who overran a military intelligence base near Kabul. At least 45 people were killed and 54 injured. Some reports put the toll at over 100. Afghan Taliban narco-jihadis (illegal drug-trafficking terrorists) issued a statement saying they’d restarted “peace” negotiations with US officials (hours after they carried out their brazen attack).
Nation Against Nation
A University of Georgia (UGA) philosophy teaching assistant Irami Osei-Frimpong, who constantly attacks the concept of “whiteness,” wrote on Facebook that “some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom.” The comment has since been deleted.
Wars and Rumors of Wars
The key to the coming storm – war between Iran and Israel – escalated in important ways last Sunday night. Israel in reality has already been in a proxy war with Iran. Iran has its fingers in it all, from Gaza’s Hamas to Lebanon’s Hezbollah to its entrenchment in Syria. An article in the Washington Free Beacon states, “Right now the war…is simmering. But that pot can begin boiling at any time, before overflowing and creating a mess of blood and debris.” Those who know last days Bible prophecy are well aware of what’s coming in Isaiah 17 & Ezekiel 38-39. FYI to the rest: God wins. “Then the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. Surely it is coming, and it shall be done,” says the Lord God. ‘This is the day of which I have spoken'” (Ezekiel 39:7-8).
Iran incitement: Israel’s IDF says the attack on Mt. Hermon with an Iranian rocket (which prompted Israeli airstrikes on Iranian installations in Syria) was planned ‘months ago’ and approved by Syria. Hours after the Israeli airstrikes, Iran’s air force chief Brig. Gen. Aziz Nasirzadeh said the country’s youths were “impatient” to fight a war for “Israel’s disappearance.” “We’re ready for the decisive war that will bring about Israel’s disappearance from the earth. Our young airmen are prepared for the day when Israel will be destroyed.”
In Israel, the Iron Dome air defense system was deployed near Tel Aviv Thursday morning. Overnight, IDF forces operating near the border with Syria were fired upon. The IDF returned fire. No Israel forces were reported wounded in the incident. The army’s statement did not identify who fired at the soldiers, nor if any enemy forces were wounded.
Arabic newspaper reports that Russia has told Israel it would not tolerate further air strikes near the Damascus International Airport. How about Russia telling Iran not to fire missiles at a populated ski resort in Israel and to stop shipping arms from Damascus to Hezbollah, etc? Crickets.
Iran’s Middle East commander Gen. Soleimani has devised a plot to force US troops not just to leave Syria but to be thrown out of US bases in Iraq as well. Iraqi Shiite militias have been assigned to carry out terrorist attacks on the US troops scheduled to leave Syria.
Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu warned Hamas not to escalate violence in Gaza. He warned on Wednesday, “If you escalate, the response will be destructive.”
In Syria, a car bomb exploded near the Russian embassy in Damascus. Four people were slightly wounded in this third such attack in a regime-held area in less than a week.
Several nations, including China and Russia, are building powerful nuclear bombs designed to produce super-electromagnetic pulse (EMP) waves capable of devastating all electronics—from computers to electric grids—for hundreds of miles, according to a newly-released congressional study.
Taiwan held live-fire military exercises off its coast amid concerns that China could move to annex the island
Forerunner to the Covenant That Will Be Confirmed With Many?
According to three senior aides, the Trump administration is seriously considering releasing its Middle East peace plan as soon as possible after Israel’s national election on April 9. Allegedly, White House officials believe they have a window of just a year to roll out its plans for an Israeli-“Palestinian” peace agreement, after Israel’s elections in April and before the launch of the US 2020 presidential campaign the following summer.
Global Government Agendas
Two Democrats who have announced their candidacy for the presidency are Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers and have ties to the American Communist Party: Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. There are almost 50 members of Congress with dual citizenship. Trevor Louden pointed out in his work, Enemies Within, that there are at least 80 members of Congress who have joined the dark side in which they belong to front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood and the Communist Party.
Legislation to restore American sovereignty by withdrawing from the UN was introduced in Congress this month. The bill has been referred to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where establishment globalists will likely do everything possible to keep it from even being heard.
Germany began a two-year stint on the U.N. Security Council on January 1. Its globalist chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germany will push for “global solutions” at the UN. She also said Germany wants to make the European Union “more robust and able to make decisions.”
A poll commissioned by the World Economic Forum that surveyed 10,000 people from every region claims that a majority of the world favors globalism.
In Socialist Venezuela, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in protest of illegitimate dictator President Nicolas Maduro and in support of internationally recognized President Juan Guadio. Reports say at least seven people have been killed. Three Venezuelan lawyers are asking the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to grant precautionary measures to protect opposition leader Juan Guaido, his wife and his daughter.
Zimbabwe: As always, the Marxist-Socialist-Communist agenda gives rise to dictators. After killing white farmers and taking their land, Zimbabwe descended into poverty, and the deplorable economic situation continues to get worse by the day. Most of the nation lives in poverty, and over 5 million live in extreme poverty. People are dying from hunger.
>Climate change ruse for global governance: “They worshiped created things rather than the Creator.”
Yet Zimbabwe’s new president, who is just as bad as the old one, has increased the fuel tax to an incredibly high level, proving that the UN sustainable goals that claim will remove poverty are only making it worse. Then again, that’s their real goal – getting rid of people in order to better worship nature. Protests have been going on with the government killing the protestors.
The global elite traveling to the World Economic Forum (a guest list of 3,000 celebrities, government officials, foundation heads, investment bankers, intellectual luminaries, CEOs, and “deep thinkers”) will address the so-called “urgent” threat of climate change — but they’ll take over 1,500 separate private jets to get to there, releasing over 1,500 metric tons of carbon.
Clemson University Professor Todd May argued recently that he wants all humans to die off as a punishment for their treatment of animals and the environment. Since his article was published in the New York Times, he has refused to defend his opinion.
Indoctrinating the children: Children’s climate rallies are gaining momentum in Europe.
>Border Disorder and the Global World Order
A bit of good news: Since President Trump has ramped up his push for funding the border wall, his approval rating among Hispanic American voters has increased.
That said…President Trump arrived at a temporary agreement with Democrats to re-open the government and negotiate a plan for border security separately. The deal doesn’t include funding for a wall or barrier along the border, but the president said he was confident negotiations would continue to come to an agreement on wall funding. Good luck with that one; he will need it!
Exposing the lie from the Left regarding immigration centers: A reporter who toured an ICE immigration center in Broward County, Florida, exposed the leftist lying narrative that these immigration centers are awful. She spoke of seeing an excellent facility with the people enjoying themselves with plenty of food, taking Zumba classes, playing soccer and volleyball, enjoying excellent medical facilities and care, and visiting its library. Watch the video if you can bear the graphic language the reporter used, as she was very angry.
In his visit to Central America, Pope Francis pushed his globalist narrative, urging church leaders to support masses of migrants into their countries.
With a new caravan on the way, Tijuana (Mexico) government officials have not given much thought to avoiding the chaos that arrived in November with 6,000 Central American migrants. “Well, let’s hope they don’t come here,” said Leonardo Neri, a federal volunteer and the coordinator for a temporary migrant shelter on the eastern outskirts of Tijuana.
In Texas, 95,000 individuals registered to vote have been identified as “Non-US Citizens,” meaning they are illegally registered to vote. 58,000 have broken the law and voted in “one or more” recent elections.
Leftists are having success at shutting down the film Killing Free Speech that exposes media bias and the problems with security at the US border. Therefore, the makers of the film are offering it for free viewing to the public until the Border Patrol, who risk their lives every day, get what they need to secure the US border and we get the wall. View it here.
Another reason to further secure the US border: Murders in Mexico rose by 33% in 2018, breaking the record for the second year in a row. Mexico has struggled with years of violence as the government has battled brutal drug cartels. If anyone thinks such as these aren’t coming into the US, they’re deceived.
>Rise of AI
A quarter of US jobs will be severely disrupted as artificial intelligence accelerates the automation of existing work, according to a new Brookings Institution report. Roughly 36 million Americans hold jobs with “high exposure” to automation, meaning at least 70% of their tasks could soon be performed by machines using current technology.
At the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, parents are no longer able to see their child’s medical records once their child turns 12.
There is no such thing as personal privacy these days. That the IRS sends citizens a so-called “Privacy Act Notice” in all its mailings is a farce.
Over 770 million emails and passwords have been breached in the latest scandal. It seems like data breaches happen all the time now. After this latest one, cybersecurity experts said if you haven’t changed your password, the time is now.
Big Tech merging with Big Brother: A friend noticed that his intern from China was walking to work. When he offered a swifter mode of transportation, she declined, explaining that she “needed the steps” on her Fitbit to sign in to her social media accounts. If she fell below the right number of steps, it would lower her health and fitness rating, which is part of her social rating, which is monitored by the government. A low social rating could prevent her from working or traveling abroad.
Push for Global Religion
The Vatican chose a logo to celebrate the pope’s “interfaith” visit to Morocco. The logo combines a droopy supposed Christian cross with the so-called Islam crescent—which looks like the blade(s) of the scimitar—the conquering sword of Islam. Francis wants global government and global religion. Revelation chapter 13 and Revelation chapter 17 warn of the consequences.
The coming storm of the Tribulation draws ever nearer.
Even so, come Lord Jesus.
