Shocking to the Senses
We’ve heard, read and seen things this week that are especially shocking to the senses. We probably feel like Ezra regarding the abominations in the land. “Indeed, the hand of the leaders and rulers has been foremost in this trespass. So when I heard this thing, I tore my garment and my robe, and plucked out some of the hair of my head and beard, and sat down astonished” (Ezra 9:2-3).
Almost 90% of the continental US experienced below-freezing temperatures this week due to the polar vortex literally shutting some cities down. The Arctic air was accompanied on Wednesday by dangerous snow squalls in the Northeast. Across the US there have been at least 21 weather-related deaths. Chicago reached temperatures lower than parts of Antarctica, and other places had temperatures well below zero. An AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperature of 77 degrees below zero Fahrenheit was reported at Thief River Falls, Minnesota, on Tuesday evening.
In Canada, Toronto broke its previous snowfall record.
In Brazil, firefighters and Israeli rescue workers used sticks to poke into the treacherous mud, searching for victims of a dam that burst (caused by heavy rains and major flooding) and spilled a flood of iron ore waste. The death toll keeps rising; it’s now 121 dead and 226 missing and feared dead.
Europe Red Cross Report: Severe weather warnings have been issued across many parts of Western Europe for this weekend, with a high risk of avalanches, flash flooding and heavy snow.
In Spain, Italy, Germany and France, Red Cross volunteers are providing blankets, hot drinks and food to homeless people, while the Red Cross in Belgium is staffing several shelters for people living on the streets. British Red Cross teams in Northern Ireland are providing transport for care workers so they can reach people in rural areas affected by snow. In Belarus, where temperatures have plummeted to minus 20 degrees Celsius, heated tents have been set up in areas with large numbers of pedestrians. Specialist Red Cross mountain rescue teams have been on high alert this winter with “once in a century” snowfalls in Austria and record snowfalls in Switzerland and Germany.
In Finland, winters are often frigid, but meteorologists say its Lapland region has produced Europe’s coldest temperature this winter at minus 38.7 C (minus 37.7 F). Finland and northeastern Europe are now hosting the continent’s coldest air masses that “are Arctic in nature.”
In Cuba, a rare tornado hit Havana last Sunday night, leaving four people dead and 195 injured.
It was the first tornado to hit Cuba in decades.
In Australia, the searing heat wave continues with all-time heat records being broken. Temperatures have climbed even higher than 115 degrees. Such heat has caused snakes to seek refuge in people’s toilets. Dozens of wildfires burned in Tasmania.
Great Earthquakes in Diverse Places
A 6.2 earthquake hit near the Pacific island nation of Fiji on January 27, followed by a 5.2.
A 6.6 earthquake hit southern Mexico on Feb.1, swaying tall buildings hundreds of miles away in the capital, but there weren’t any reports of serious damage, injuries or deaths. The quake struck at a depth of 40 miles and was also felt in Guatemala and El Salvador. In Guatemala, it caused some mudslides and rockslides along roads and minor damage to a bridge.
A 6.1 earthquake hit off the coast of Indonesia on February 2.
Volcanic activity in 2018 resulted in more deaths than occurred in the previous 18 years combined.
It is now recommended that parents give their children less fruit juice. One pediatrician recommends fresh organic fruit and water. Consumer Reports tested 45 packaged fruit juices for heavy metals, and measurable levels were found in every product. Long-term exposure can cause damaged ability to learn and certain illnesses. Heavy metals make their way into food because they occur naturally in air, water and soil. They can also wind up in food during the manufacturing and packaging processes.
Tyson Foods is recalling some chicken nuggets shipped to Arizona, California, Illinois, New Jersey and Utah after customers said they found pieces of “soft, blue rubber” inside. 5-pound (2-kilogram) bags should be thrown away or returned.
In California, the virulent Newcastle disease that prompted 500,000 Southern California chickens to be euthanized has been detected in a flock of backyard chickens in Norco. Besides quarantining those birds, all feed stores in Norco have been quarantined and restricted from having birds on site.
In Argentina, an outbreak of Hantavirus carried by rats and other rodents has killed 11 people and infected several others. There’s no treatment, cure or vaccine; the fatality rate can reach 35-50%.
A superbug from India is spreading far and fast. A new study found that an antibiotic-resistant gene originally discovered in bacteria from India was found 8,000 miles away in bacteria in the soil of a remote Norwegian Arctic environment. Researchers believe the gene made the trek in less than three years, highlighting the speed with which antibiotic resistance can spread on a global scale.
The mystery illness dubbed the Havana syndrome that only afflicts government employees from the US and Canada is in the news again this week, having affected another Canadian diplomat in Cuba. Symptoms begin after affected victims hear a high-pitched sound. The victims exhibit a range of symptoms and diagnoses including dizziness, ringing in the ears, headaches, memory loss, difficulty concentrating and mild traumatic brain injury (aka concussion). President Trump reduced the US staff there to a minimum, and Canada says it will now reduce its staff.
Iniquity (lawlessness, wickedness) Shall Abound
In Houston, Texas, five police officers were shot during a drug raid. Two are still in serious condition, having been shot in the neck. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo received a shocking Facebook message afterward wishing death to police including the chief, and horrible things to him and his family. Acevedo responded to the message by tweeting, “Example of the ugly world and dark hearts police officers and the communities face each and every day. Makes one wonder if the dark heart is driven by evil, mental illness or both.”
Washington, D.C. Antifa leader Joseph “Jose” Alcoff was one of those arrested and charged with multiple felonies in Philadelphia on Jan. 10 in connection to the Antifa mob attack against two Marines in November. Alcoff faces 17 charges, including multiple counts of aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, conspiracy and terroristic threats, and one count of robbery while inflicting serious bodily injury. When one of the Marines who was being attacked yelled “I’m Mexican,” the attack continued with the Antifa mob calling him a spic and a wetback. So who are the real fascists here? Antifa! Alcoff was also arrested for an attack in New Jersey in 2011. Not only that…
Alcoff worked for Americans for Financial Reform (AFR), who tried to cover this incident up. Now they say he was fired the month before but refuse to give a date. As campaign manager for AFR, Alcoff was quoted in press releases from Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, appeared at an event with Democratic Rep. Don Beyer of Virginia outside the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in March and has been pictured alongside Democratic Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters.
Leftist Agenda and Its Consequences
The shocking depth of depravity the Left has descended into boggles the mind. This week, there have been calls for the Covington Catholic high school boys to be chopped up in a woodchipper, or for them to be locked in a classroom and burned alive. Why? Because they smiled, clapped and chanted along to the beat of a Native American drummer who approached them. Likely, many of them thought he was just trying to drown out the black religious cult (known for its hatred of whites and Jews). The members of the cult claim to be the true Israelites, and were hurling disgusting insults at the boys. The mainstream media conveniently left them out in their edited video showings.
As for the Native American drummer, Nathan Philips (who is not a Vietnam Vet by the way), he and his protest group tried to storm a Catholic mass in DC with the drum and chanting within that same 24-hour period, and they banged on the doors when they were locked out. One was heard saying, “I’ll watch the cops.” Meanwhile, the Covington school had to be closed the next school day due to threats against the students.
Even when proven wrong, it didn’t stop the Left from carrying on with their rhetoric. For example: New York Times reporter Dan Levin on Twitter openly solicited negative stories about Christian schools. “I’m a New York Times reporter writing about #exposechristianschools,” Levin tweeted, “Are you in your 20s or younger who went to a Christian school? I’d like to hear about your experience and its impact on your life.” Ironically, he didn’t get the answers he was looking for; most responded positively to their Christian education. What’s next on the Democrat Party’s agenda? What they really hate is God and national sovereignty. They want a Godless global so-called utopia.
In Maryland, the school board of Baltimore City Public Schools unanimously voted against arming school resource officers despite the fact that they are actually trained police officers.
A new study finds that nearly nine in ten doctors believe barriers set by insurance plans have led to worsened conditions for patients in need of care. Researchers with Aimed Alliance say that doctors are so fed up with the constant headaches caused by insurers that nearly half are considering a career change.
>More Traitors and Treachery
In California, at a Santa Barbara Community College Board of Trustee’s meeting, a military veteran’s wife was continuously shouted down as she tried to recite the pledge of allegiance, despite calls from the floor to let her finish. She was brought to tears.
A Clinton-appointed judge is refusing to unseal documents pertaining to the raid on the Clinton Foundation whistleblower, Dennis Nathan (Nate) Cain. Over a dozen FBI agents rifled through his home for over six hours even though he is a recognized whistleblower and had already given the documents to the proper investigative channels. The documents reveal then-FBI Director Robert Mueller failed to investigate criminal misconduct by the Russian nuclear firm that purchased 20% of US Uranium. Hillary Clinton was involved in the sale.
Nate Cain is asking for prayer. He said “3 months after the raid, I have been let go. Very disappointing, considering two letters of accommodation in the last year for exceptional work, and have not been charged with anything. Please pray for us [him and his family]. I did the right thing by blowing the whistle. God has a purpose in all this.”
A political action committee linked to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed a total of $250,000 to an activist campaign primarily bankrolled by George Soros.
On Wednesday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke of how the Democrats are taking this country backwards just to settle political scores. He recounted how the government shutdown happened in large part due to obstruction from Pelosi and Schumer and how the Democrats kept rejecting concessions from the president to end the shutdown. They could care less that federal employees weren’t being paid during this shutdown. From there, McCarthy walked through the statistics of American victims of illegal alien crimes and the effects that an insecure border has on the American public:
There have been 266,000 criminal aliens arrested the last two years. This includes charges or convictions of 100,000 assaults, nearly 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings. Three hundred Americans die every week from heroin. And more than 90% of heroin comes across the Southern border. And roughly 10,000 children are being smuggled into the U.S. every year to be sold for human trafficking.
Robert Mueller hasn’t found any evidence of Russian collusion by President Trump, so in his frustration he’s arresting everyone he can in great fanfare that apparently ever knew the president. A ton of federal investigators showed up at Roger Stone’s home to arrest him on inflated obstruction of justice charges. It’s shocking how Democrat politicians who are blatantly guilty of all kinds of misdeeds, that even endanger our country, just glide along with no repercussions.
Israel’s attorney general will decide on Prime Minister Netanyahu’s legal fate before the upcoming April 9 election. He’s been charged with corruption; a charge which he denies. The decision could possibly alter the course of the elections.
>Professing to be wise, they became fools.
Due to all the insanity from the Left, a report from 2015 is recirculating that I had not heard about until now. Feminists and leftists want to force men to sit down to urinate. And another article I found (you won’t believe this one, but it’s true) reveals that a group of college graduates with Phd’s from the University of Toronto gathered there to discuss whether male flatulence is sexist. Ashleigh Ingle argued that when a woman passes gas in front of a male who then does so louder, it is a form of rape.
In New York, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency confirmed Tuesday that they recently arrested 118 illegal immigrants – over 100 of whom had prior criminal convictions. In years past, most would be turned over to ICE upon release from jail. Now that many sanctuary cities, including NYC, don’t honor ICE detainers, these individuals, who often have significant criminal histories, are released onto the street, presenting a potential public safety threat.
The Pentagon will send several thousand more troops to the southern border following a request from the Dept of Homeland Security. The mission will place a heavy focus on watching for potential threats. Troops will operate mobile surveillance cameras and install more concertina wire.
Footage shows migrants moving closer to the U.S. southern border, numbering nearly 3,000.
Mexican President Obrador (Amlo) shockingly claimed there will be no more war on drugs. He said his administration will focus on reducing violent crimes instead of capturing regularly violent drug lords.
Speaking of that, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized 254 pounds of fentanyl and 395 pounds of meth at the US/Mexican border this week at a legal point of entry into Arizona. Sources say the amount seized was enough to kill 57 million people. The drugs were found in a tractor-trailer full of cucumbers. Millions of pounds of winter produce cross the border each day from Mexico to supermarkets all along the western United States. An average of 1,500 trucks cross each day.
The smuggling of both opiates has been on the rise through ports of entry in recent years along the U.S.-Mexico border. This was the largest fentanyl seizure ever recorded at any port of entry in the United States. Fentanyl is now the leading cause of drug overdose death in the US, accounting for over 28,000 deaths in 2017 alone. This deadly drug is mixed with other drugs because it is cheaper, and it kills in very small doses. It is 80 to 100 times more potent than morphine.
In the Philippines, two bombs at a Roman Catholic cathedral have killed 20 people and injured dozens of others. The first blast occurred during Sunday Mass on Jolo island where Islamist militants are active. As soldiers responded, a second device exploded in the car park.
Iran Islamists want a Shiite US, and want the world to become Shiite as well. Ayatollah Dezhkham, Khamenei’s rep in Iran’s Fars Province, delivered a speech in which he said Iranian people are fighting and awaiting the day when the banner of Islam will fly all over the planet and the Mahdi establishes his global rule. He said, “Until we turn the White House into a Hussainiya [Shiite Islamic center], we will all continue to shout: ‘Death to America!’” The crowd subsequently chanted, “Death to America!”
Days of Noah and Lot Returned
In Atlanta, 33 people have been arrested this week on sex trafficking charges ahead of the Super Bowl.
In California, authorities arrested 339 people during a 3-day human trafficking sting. Nearly 50 victims were rescued, including 14 minors. Some of the victims were as young as 13 while other cases involved children as young as 6. One example showed a 30-year-old man sexually assaulting a 6-year-old child in multiple videos showing graphic child pornography. Some of the rescued sex trafficking victims were runaways while others had been discovered through online chat rooms or social media sites.
>Targeting Young Children
The Walt Disney Company has been unofficially embracing LGBT pride in its events, but this year it becomes official.
A Pennsylvania library is proudly hosting ‘drag queen story fun time’ for children featuring a foul-mouthed adult drag queen entertainer named Eric Torres who goes by stage name ‘Annie Christ’ – a play-on-words of ‘Anti-Christ.’ Torres plans to read the books Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed and Sparkle Boy to children.
In the latest instance of pedophilia normalization, NBC released a fluff piece covering underage children crossdressing and exploring the LGBTQ community. Most heard about drag kid Desmond promoted and cheered on Good Morning America and his dancing for dollars at a gay bar. But that’s not all. Viral video of the child shows him imitating snorting ketamine and referencing pedophilia by saying “LGBTPQ” next to an adult crossdresser who also talked about snorting the drug off of a couch. Other footage shows the child and convicted murderer Michael Alig (who butchered a clubgoer in the 1990s) with a portrait of the word “Rohypnol,” a date-rape drug, behind them.
>Hands that shed innocent blood
The shocking up-to-birth abortion law passed this week in New York that was applauded, has caused outrage.
Convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell who killed babies after being born, predicted his practice would become accepted in his lifetime, and he was right. The Democrats proved that this week. We can probably now expect this murderer to apply for his conviction to be overturned.
Under a new law that just took effect in New York, a child may be aborted up to the due date or even during the birth itself. If that child survives the attempted abortion and is born alive, that child may be murdered on sight by an abortionist to “complete” the abortion.
Besides Governor Cuomo having the World Trade Center’s spire lit up in pink to celebrate, NYC celebrated the new abortion bill by throwing a parade. Shocking to the senses doesn’t even begin to explain the feeling you will get if you see and listen to the band that was featured. Watch this brief clip of the evilness, if you dare.
There are aggressive moves all across the country to expand late-term abortion. Alaska, Colorado, New Mexico, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, the District of Colombia, and now New York have no gestational limits on abortion, meaning a woman can abort a baby at any point up until the moment of birth. New York doesn’t even require a doctor to perform the abortion. Rhode Island, New Mexico, and Vermont have new extreme abortion legislation pending right now. [*Virginia’s depraved bill was thankfully defeated by the Republicans; this is discussed in an upcoming paragraph]. Rhode Island has a pro-life statement already on the books declaring life begins at conception, but pending legislation seeks to remove that, thereby repealing the personhood of unborn babies.
Of course: after legalizing abortions up to birth, New York is now considering legalizing assisted suicide. There are three assisted suicide related bills introduced in New York. The first bill (A 30) is a study bill requiring the commissioner of health to conduct a study relating to medical aid in dying. Study bills always raise a caution because you don’t study an issue unless you are considering legalization.
This demonic abortion insanity has caused such outrage among those who revere God that shocking headlines, photos and videos people might normally have hesitated to post on social media have frequently appeared, showing the debauchery done to innocent babies. One video showed an unapologetic abortionist holding up to the camera a baby’s decapitated head. Maybe it will wake up a few people who support this sadistic practice.
>Also they worship the creature rather than the Creator.
In New Jersey – a state that has no limit on when you can have an abortion – a newly introduced bill would make it illegal to kill pregnant livestock. Apparently, these New Jersey lawmakers are more concerned about unborn cattle than they are about human babies.
*Virginia Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran, who introduced the bill this week to legalize abortions up to birth (that was also supported by Virginia’s Democrat Governor Ralph Northam), filed a bill on that same day to protect cankerworms. Fortunately, the Republicans defeated the abortion bill, but we know that won’t stop the Democrats from pressing on with this demonic agenda.
Regarding Northam, another global warming warner, he is under fire for suggesting that babies could be allowed to be born, then the mother and doctor could decide whether they would live or die.
Since this shocking statement, a look into his past has revealed a racist photo of him in his 1984 medical school yearbook. Sources say he is the one in black-face posing next to someone in a KKK robe. This is awful at any time. But in 1984 it’s hard to imagine that a person would be seen dressing this way and proudly posing for a photo. One of them is obviously him as you will note when you read the caption. He admitted this even on video in an apology on February 1 (Washington Post), but with increasing calls for his resignation, he decided to change his story the next day, saying he doesn’t believe it’s him! The video of his admission will likely be removed now by the mainstream media who were more than happy to report his new denial.
At this link is a list of companies that directly or indirectly support Planned Parenthood’s debauchery. It’s getting so that there aren’t going to be many companies that don’t support Leftist lunacy.
Apostasy/Doctrines of Demons
The Southern Baptist Convention today stands for “Slowly Becoming Corrupt,” to quote a brother in Christ. Other mainstream churches have long gone by the wayside; however, in the last few years, the SBC has taken a liberal left turn religiously and politically. SBC president, J.D. Greear, has now changed his stance regarding homosexuality. While reading through the book of Romans, Greear makes the claim that the Apostle Paul says homosexuality is no worse a sin than others and that he indicates quite a few other sins are worse. Greear agreed with what another supposed Bible teacher said, claiming that the Bible only whispers against sexual sin but shouts against materialism and religious pride (listen at the 52:25 mark in Greear’s sermon).
Yet, one cannot read Romans 1 and not realize that homosexuality is regarded as an abominable sin. And doesn’t Graaer remember that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of it? This isn’t to say we can’t witness to them. Yes, we should, but at the same time we must not support their lifestyle. Graaer wants us to support LGBT rights. So we’re supposed to support same-sex marriage, etc.? No.
A famously pro-gay Catholic bishop is slated to lead an “LGBTQ retreat” next weekend at the University of Notre Dame. At the retreat, Bishop John Stowe “will be integrating sexual orientation and faith from a (so-called) Scriptural and Biblical perspective,” according to an online description provided by the University’s Gender Relations Center. The University’s Campus Ministry is a cosponsor.
Nadia Bolz-Weber, the foul-mouthed Lutheran “minister” and public “theologian,” had a drag queen “minister of fabulousness” and says all churches should get one. She served as founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints, a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America until she retired a few months ago to pursue speaking engagements. She’s a two-time New York Times bestselling author, and was profiled in a 2014 article in More magazine written by Julia Duin – an article which received a Wilbur Award from the Religion Communicators Council. She has been replaced by an Episcopal minister who is married to a male drag queen.
Hatred of God
Democrat dirty deeds have dominated the news since the moment they took over the House majority. The current draft of the proposed House Committee on Natural Resources rules package replaces all gender-specific pronouns with “their.” Also, House Democrats proposed to strike “so help you God” from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of their proposed rules package. (If you recall, Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed last year that “Democrats do the Lord’s work” and “Republicans dishonor God.”) Due to immediate backlash against omitting God from the oath, it’s been quashed…for now.
In California, the president of the Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees unilaterally decided to get rid of the Pledge of Allegiance because it states “one nation under God.” Their claim is that the Pledge “has a history steeped in expressions of nativism and white nationalism.” Seriously?
Hatred of Christianity
President Trump was scorned by liberal secular critics on Monday when he endorsed biblical literacy education in public schools.
Christian, Asia Bibi, still needs our prayers as Pakistan authorities have not yet gotten her out of the country. Her immediate family was released months ago and is in Canada. Unfortunately, Canada under Justin Trudeau is becoming Canada-istan.
In the UK, 15 Christian churches received threatening letters warning them to stop ALL services, or they will face bombings and stabbings. Islamic law forbids Christians to make public display of their religion. What other group with a theology of force and violence thinks Christian worship is immoral?
Hatred of God’s covenant people, the Jews
In Detroit this past week, an anti-Israel protest again took place during Creating Change, an LGBTQ conference that was the site of a raucous anti-Israel protest in 2016. At the opening of this year’s conference, organized by the National LGBTQ Task Force, a group of activists holding “Palestinian” flags took to the stage unannounced and led a 13-minute protest for “Palestinian liberation” and against Zionism. The speakers were not interrupted or asked to leave by the event organizers.
Anti-Semitic Muslim Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) suggested in an interview this week that Israel should not be allowed to exist as a Jewish state, that Israel is not a democracy, and she compared Israel to Iran — which is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.
In the US, the Democrat Party “discreetly” dropped out of the Women’s March. Like most of the other leftist establishment groups slowly slinking away from its pro-Farrakhan leadership, the DNC offered a non-denial and no condemnation of the group’s anti-Semitism.
In Israel, vandals ransacked a Jerusalem synagogue Monday night in an attack labeled an “antisemitic pogrom,” the second time in a week a synagogue was vandalized. Objects destroyed included a Torah scroll and prayer books.
The so-called “Palestinian” Authority (formerly known as the PLO terrorist organization) asked the UN to deploy a permanent international force in the West Bank and east Jerusalem to protect (their imagined nation of) “Palestine” until what it calls “the end of Israel’s belligerent occupation.” The PLO claims that it fears attacks from Israeli settlers. (Seriously? They’re not the ones committing the violence.)
A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer. “We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. One wonders if those who hate the Jewish people and Israel will hypocritically be the first ones to line up for the cure if this becomes reality.
Nation (Ethnic) Shall Rise Against Nation (Ethnic)
The infamous Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called for a separate state for Black Americans, saying that’s “what God wants” while those opposed he described as “slaves.”
In Iraq, at least one person died and 10 were injured after an angry crowd stormed a Turkish military camp in Iraq’s Kurdish region. Residents set fire to vehicles and buildings in protest against Turkish airstrikes in the area that have killed several people. Turkey conducts frequent raids against the Kurdish PKK, which is based on the Iraqi side of the border.
Wars and Rumors of Wars
The US will stop complying with its nuclear pact with Russia after talks to save it fell flat. The US has long accused Russia of breaking the treaty, and a new Russian missile has violated the pact.
The US warned Venezuela that any threats against American diplomats or opposition leader Juan Guaidó will be met with “a significant response.” This comes days after the US and 20 other countries recognized Guaidó as interim president. Yet, as socialist Venezuela’s economy continues collapsing and social unrest rises due to new political instability, Russia has sent hundreds of “mercenaries” there in support of its dictator, Nicolas Maduro.
Lebanon has formed a government resulting in a Cabinet in which Iran-backed Hezbollah has greater influence.
Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani said Iran will continue supplying high-precision missiles to its proxies in Lebanon and Gaza so they’d be able to respond to Israel’s “acts of stupidity with hellfire.” He is obviously misunderstood as to who acts with stupidity and who will see hellfire…after God is finished dealing with them (Ezekiel 39:4-8).
Salami, Salami, Boloney: Top Iranian general Hossein Salami said his country has developed a “strategic capacity” to destroy Israel. He said Iran has warned the Zionist regime not to play with fire, because they will be destroyed before the US helps them. He vowed that a new war “will result in Israel’s defeat within 3 days, in a way that they will not find enough graves to bury their dead.” Again, Ezekiel 38-39 tells us that exactly the opposite will occur, with God performing it all on His own.
Iran will dispatch a fleet of warships in a joint operation with Russia in the Western Atlantic. Many see Iran as just a regional power. Yet Iran obviously perceives itself to be a global power.
>Rise of the Kings of the East
Republican Sen. James Inhofe, chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said on Tuesday that China’s ongoing militarization activities resemble preparation for a world war.
Dan Coats, director of US national intelligence, warns that Israel’s ongoing strikes against Iranian targets in Syria increase the threat of regional war. Doesn’t he realize that Israel’s not striking Iranian targets in Syria would most certainly lead to war? Iran is determined to stay entrenched in Syria and keep sending weapons of war from Damascus to Lebanon’s Hezbollah in preparation for war against Israel.
Facebook admitted that it paid children as young as 13 for access to monitor all their internet data. The app used for this has since been pulled by the company.
Microsoft’s NewsGuard, the establishment media’s latest effort to blacklist alternative media sites, is giving its sign of approval to proven hoaxes, even to stories that have been retracted.
Beast System Technology
In a remarkable landmark breakthrough, scientists have demonstrated a computer system effectively translating brain signals into intelligible speech. The extraordinary experiment presents a proof-of-concept that could pave the way for a large variety of brain-controlled communication devices in the future. The science fiction idea of being able to control devices or communicate with others just by thinking is slowly, but surely, getting closer to reality.
Push for a European New World Order
French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel share the same globalist dream and hatred of nationalism. They’ve signed a new Franco-German treaty aimed at “reinvigorating the European Union” and “building a common military culture, contributing to the creation of a European army.” Article 8 commits to “cooperating closely in all organs of the United Nations.”
Push for Global Religion
The global-religion pushing Pope Francis pandered to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ahead of his visit that will take place this week. He praised the majority-Muslim nation that has a record of severe human rights violations, calling them a “model of coexistence” and freedom.
A report in the Daily Caller points out that the UAE is known for restricting free speech and assembly, heinous torture and forced disappearances of dissidents, activists and journalists, as well as negligence in addressing instances of sexual abuse against domestic workers.
The pope praised the UAE for striving to be a place where people can “find a secure place to work and live freely in respect for diversity.” He thanked those willing to meet with him for their “courage and desire to affirm that faith in God unites.” Francis will lead a public mass on Feb. 5 in Abu Dhabi — the first mass led by a pope on the Arabian peninsula in history.
Muslims do not worship the God of the Bible, and he surely knows it. And he surely knows that their ideology calls for killing Christians and Jews, and for conquering the world for Islam. True Christians do not yoke themselves together in worship with unbelievers, as commanded in the Bible (2 Corinthians 6:14-17).
This and many other doings by this pope remind us of the second beast of Revelation, whom we refer to as The False Prophet who has “horns like a lamb, but speaks like a dragon.” That person will demand in the middle of the coming 7-year Tribulation that all who dwell on the earth worship the Antichrist, or be killed (Revelation 13).
Shocked and Appalled
Unless one lives in a cave on top of the Himalayan Mountains, they should know that something very wicked is in play these days. Events of just these past several days alone should shock everyone to their core who has reverence for God.
Ezra 9:6 “And I said: ‘O my God, I am too ashamed and humiliated to lift up my face to You, my God; for our iniquities have risen higher than our heads, and our guilt has grown up to the heavens.’”
