Are We In the Last Days? You Bet!
The closer we get to Christ’s return, we can expect conditions to only get worse. God is trying to get the world’s attention to turn people back to Him, but severe judgment is surely coming soon upon the world. Though people are without excuse who reject the One True God (Romans 18:32), and we can imagine that many are reprobates at this point, only God knows who is beyond redemption. So, no matter how upset we get at what we see going on, let us pray for the lost everywhere as we continue to spread the gospel, watch, and warn until Jesus calls us up to escape the wrath to come.
In India, a fast-moving fire began with an exploding gas cylinder and spread due to a chemical warehouse, causing the flames to sweep through a historic district of Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka, killing 110 people. Firefighters fought for over five hours to put out the blaze, hindered by narrow streets and a lack of water sources.

“Great earthquakes shall be in Divers Places” (Luke 21:11).
A 6.3 earthquake struck off the coast of Papua, New Guinea, on February 17.
A 7.5 deep earthquake struck the Peru-Ecuador Border Region on February 22. It was followed by a 5.5 magnitude earthquake that occurred less than 25 minutes later in western Ecuador. Six people sustained injuries. If this strong earthquake had been shallow, there would be an entirely different outcome indeed.
[The predominant religion in Peru and Ecuador is Roman Catholic with the indigenous people blending Catholicism and their traditional beliefs, such as the nearly complete association of Pacha Mama (Mother Earth/Mother Nature) with Mary. Pacha Mama is believed by them to be “a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting, embodies the mountains and causes earthquakes – an independent and ever-present deity with her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain life on Earth.”]
There will be Pestilence/Plague (Luke 21:11).
Another locust outbreak: This one in Sudan and Eritrea is spreading rapidly along both sides of the Red Sea to Saudi Arabia and Egypt, flagging a possible threat to crops and food security. Who can forget the one in January in Saudi Arabia at Islam’s holiest site in Mecca?
In 24 US states, also in Canada, Norway and Finland. The CDC has issued a warning about Chronic Wasting Disease that affects elk, moose and deer. A couple of the effects of this disease besides wasting away and stumbling are exhibiting a lack of fear of man and also aggression. Experts warn this disease could and likely will end up infecting humans, and there’s no treatment or cure Hunters are warned to take precautions when handling brain and bodily fluids from deer. Monkeys injected with brain fluids or fed muscle or brain tissue from infected animals also became infected. And it infected human gene-carrying lab mice when injected. (I’d advise scientists to stop putting human genes/tissue into animals and growing human organs in and on them.) God will not be mocked.
Transgender Mosquitoes: Scientists have launched a major new phase in the testing of a controversial genetically modified organism: a mosquito designed to quickly spread a genetic mutation lethal to its own species. For the first time, they’ve begun large-scale releases of the engineered insects into a high-security laboratory in Terni, Italy. “This will really be a breakthrough experiment,” says Ruth Mueller, an entomologist who runs the lab. “It’s a historic moment.”
“The females become a bit more male,” Mueller says. “A kind of hermaphrodite.” Their mouths resemble male mosquito mouths so they can’t bite and spread malaria. The insects’ reproductive organs are deformed so they can’t lay eggs. As more female mosquitoes inherit two copies of the modification, more become sterile. Critics fear that gene-drive organisms could run amok and wreak havoc if released into the wild. The insects could inadvertently have a negative effect on crops, for example, by eliminating important pollinators. The insects’ population crash could lead to other mosquitoes coming with other diseases, critics say. “We can’t be taking lightly this extermination technology. We need to slow down. We need to hit the pause button on gene drives.”
Sorcery: “Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13).
In Cambodia, spirit mediums in headdresses and lurid make-up pierced their cheeks with needles and cut their tongues with knives as they led a procession to mark the end of Chinese New year. They used their blood to write mystical diagrams known as yantras on paper slips before distributing them to the crowd. “It is a ceremony to invite spirits to bless people so they could make more money from their business, have prosperity and live with happiness,” said medium Pov Pheakna. The annual festival is known as Hei Neak Ta, or spirit parade. Believers in this sorcery invite spirit-possessed mediums into their shops and homes to bless them with luck or banish illness or bad fortune.

Latter Days Departing from the Faith and Doctrines of Demons (1 Timothy 4:1-3)
Abortionist, Willie Parker calls himself a “Christian abortion doctor” who “does the Lord’s work.” Pro-life educator Mike Adams called Dr. Parker out on his strange and inaccurate claims, like the idea that first-trimester babies don’t have any distinct body parts. He then quotes Parker’s book, in which the doctor admits: “I make sure I find every part, and I place them together, re-creating the fetus in the pan.”
The Vatican has an established process to deal with priests who father children. Vincent Doyle, who discovered he was the son of a priest, first informed the Times and said others like him are called “children of the ordained.” “I was shocked they had a term for it,” Doyle said. The children are sometimes born from affairs, while others are from cases of abuse.

>Godless Indoctrination of Our Youth
In California, parents in Santa Barbara are suing a leftist hate group called Just Communities (aka just Communists) and the local school board to end the group’s taxpayer-funded (so-called) implicit bias training that has a powerful anti-white, anti-male, and anti-Christian slant.
A college student environmental group referred to Chick-fil-A as a “white supremacist, imperialist, capitalist” cult that contributes to climate change, and demanded University of Georgia ban the Christian-owned restaurant. Athens EarthStrike apparently boasts members of the school’s Athens Young Democratic Socialists of America group.
Hatred of God’s Covenant People, the Jews: In the last days when the Jews are back in their land, God will bring all the nations to Armageddon and enter into judgment with them for the treatment of “My people, My heritage Israel” (Joel 3:1-2).
The Jewish people are facing the worst wave of anti-Semitism since the Holocaust, Elan Carr, the Trump administration’s envoy to combat anti-Semitism, told The Jerusalem Post, and it’s worldwide.
Veteran NYC Democrat politician Dov Hikind is so concerned about anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party that he launched the anti-Semite of the year award to draw attention to this growing cancer (Ilhan Omar won against other vile contenders). He’s angrily wondering why Democrat leadership is silent. It’s amazing why it took him so long to realize this truth about his Party.
In New York, there’s a continuing rise of hate crimes against Jews. One video showed a 51-year-old Jewish man being beaten to the ground by three young men, who seemed to select him at random. Another showed an Orthodox Jewish man chased across the street by a man wielding a tree branch. A third showed an Orthodox Jewish man hanging on to a fence as an assailant jumped and choked him.
In Chicago, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan delivered a four-hour speech at the Saviours’ Day Convention streamed live on the Internet in which he spewed vile lies and hatred of the Jewish people.
In France’s latest incident in a series of anti-Semitic attacks, 100 gravestones at a Jewish cemetery were desecrated and spray-painted with Swastikas. The heavily migrant-populated Paris suburbs are seeing their Jewish communities dwindle as families choose to move away.
A shopping mall in Ukraine, on a street named for a Nazi collaborator, decorated a staircase with a large swastika locked in a white rhombus encircled by red, similar to Nazi Germany’s flag.
“I will bless them that bless thee (Israel), and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).
The Jews are still God’s chosen covenant people; though they are blinded in part until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. The church has not replaced Israel. During Daniel’s 70th week (the time of Jacob’s trouble aka The Tribulation), a remnant will turn to Christ and be saved.
Israel has indeed blessed the world. Anyone who thinks they can boycott Israeli products is foolish; they’d have to go back to the dark ages. The Israel-hating Muslim rep in Michigan, Rashida Tliab, is just one example who calls for boycotting Israeli products. Yet she uses Israeli technology to advance her career. Her website is a wix website—one of the largest Israel-based websites that powers an enormous amount of websites worldwide.
Here’s the latest of a myriad of Israeli inventions: A headset made by Israel-based Augmedics projects 3D visualization of the patient in real time, allowing surgeons to “see” through the patient’s skin, muscle tissue, and bone. The imaging is projected onto the surgeons’ retina using the transparent display headset, allowing surgeons to simultaneously look at their patient, as well as seeing the necessary navigation data without averting their eyes to a remote screen.

A Hormone kit that allegedly will give men the ability to breastfeed could be available in the next few years. The home “chest-feeding kit” was designed by Marie-Claire Springham for men to be able to breastfeed their children as an “empathy tool” in conjunction with hormone therapy, which will allegedly give a man breasts up to a B-cup and enable him to produce milk. The designer of this “kit” won an award at the Meaning-Centred Design Awards in London.
A UK government lawyer said “mother” is no longer a gender specific term preserved only for women during a High Court hearing where a ‘transgender’ (so-called) man born a woman gave birth to a child and is seeking to be named the father, rendering the baby legally motherless. If the child is determined ‘motherless’ and the parent the ‘father,’ or the court agrees with the British civil servants that the parent can be identified as a “male mother” – removing motherhood from the privilege of biological womanhood – it could result in changes to British legislation.
Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government used its official @Canada Twitter account to promote a Canadian drag queen.

In the US, police are warning parents about a viral ’48-Hour Challenge’: The hashtag encourages teens to disappear for up to two days and awards “points” to every social media mention they receive during that time. This sinister challenge occurred in the UK in 2015.
FromWesternFront.com: An article from 2015 is circulating again showing that Planned Parenthood keeps aborted babies alive to harvest their organs. Holly O’Donnell, former blood and tissue procurement technician for StemExpress, related being told to harvest the brain of a late-term fetus by cutting down the middle of the face with scissors. Writer Peter Paetzold, once pro-choice for very early abortions, said “No more.” He said, “This is the hill worth dying on, folks. This is pure evil. And it is not debatable. Shame on any pro-choicer who defends funding this institution.”
Argentina held another pro-abortion rally on February 19. See the video here. Also, see the photo of a child wearing “abortion green” and stepping on a baby doll. With children being taught to believe we started out as primordial ooze and that babies in the womb have no value, it’s no wonder children grow up not valuing their own lives or anyone else’s.
The mainstream media that is even reporting this at all is playing it down (of course they would) and not mentioning the baby parts trade. Two wealthy Ecuadorian brothers, Roberto and William Isaias, who were principals in the California companies ordered to shut down for illegally trafficking worldwide in aborted baby parts it obtained from Planned Parenthood, have been arrested by ICE and are slated for deportation hearings. Operation Rescue published an investigative report in 2016 that detailed their crimes in Ecuador, dubious dealings with the Obama administration, their business with Planned Parenthood and the aborted baby body parts trade.
Leftists bring the innocent to trial instead of the guilty. The California attorney general charged David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress after Texas prosecutors dropped a similar case against them. The pair pleaded not guilty and argue they are undercover journalists shielded from prosecution. Daleiden and Merritt were accused of secretly making videos that Planned Parenthood argued were heavily edited to unfairly show workers agreeing to sell fetal material for profit, which the group says it does not do. (I’ve seen the videos, and the revolting comments of these abortionists are not edited).
In an unprecedented move, and at the request of abortion giants Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, the attorney general sought to try Merritt in secret on these bogus charges, and to completely prevent the public from ever seeing the undercover videos which are alleged to have been illegally recorded. (The judge ruled the videos will be shown at her preliminary hearing.) Liberty Counsel is defending Merritt against 15 felony charges brought against her by the attorney general in connection with her undercover journalism work which exposed Planned Parenthood’s trade in baby body parts (case coming up towards end of April).
As I’ve said before, and will continue to say, the last stage in the fall of nations has always followed the same pattern throughout history. Anyone with common sense should be able to see that we are there:
“I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them [those unqualified to be leaders]…Because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of His glory. The show of their countenance doth witness against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! For they have rewarded evil unto themselves…children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! They which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people” (see Isaiah 3).
>Fighting the Good Fight against the Murder of Babies: They need our prayers as the Left is fighting against them on these things:
In Spokane, Washington, Pastor Ken Peters decided to bring the church to one of Hell’s gates – the very front door of a Planned Parenthood facility – as a way of fighting against abortion. The congregation gathers once a month to pray and worship God right outside the facility’s doors.
The Trump administration’s Dept. of Health & Human Services released its final rule changing funding regulations under Title X family planning program, a long-awaited action expected to reduce Planned Parenthood’s federal tax subsidies by almost $60 million. Trump announced a similar move last May; but under previous rules, Title X services and abortions could “co-locate” in the same center, as long as the abortions were privately funded. Now, the money will be redirected to Women’s Qualified Health Centers not involved in abortions, which dramatically outnumber Planned Parenthood locations across the US.
Kentucky lawmakers advanced another pro-life bill Wednesday to protect unborn babies from abortion in their state. State House Bill 5 is one of several pro-life measures going through the state legislature this winter. If passed, it would ban discriminatory abortions on unborn babies based on their sex, race or disability, such as Down syndrome.

A group of Microsoft employees demanded the company bow to their political views and cancel its military contract through which the HoloLens reality headset would be used to train soldiers. Microsoft employees also demanded their employer stop offering any technologies to the U.S. government. They did the same thing last year to protest Microsoft working with the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Google employees have made similar demands, causing the company to end one of its technology contracts with the Pentagon. These efforts are part of a larger trend. Just wait till the enemy is knocking their door down and see how they feel then.
Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) spoke about Andrew McCabe’s treasonous push to oust President Trump. Stewart said, “What I think we have to ask ourselves, is: How in the world was this man the Acting Director of the FBI when he exercised this kind of judgment? An individual who seriously said, we should implement the 25th Amendment, which is essentially a coup – I mean, it’s essentially treason to say, we’re gonna remove this president — based on what? Based on nothing.”
Venezuela’s Socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro is denying that the country is in crisis. He ordered the closure of the border with Brazil to stop foreign humanitarian aid, including US aid. The leftist leader went on TV to say he was also considering shutting the key border with Colombia to stop the opposition bringing in relief. We’re supposed to believe over 3 million Venezuelans fled the country for no reason.

In his toughest talk yet, Putin is threatening that if the US deploys missiles in Europe, Russia will respond by targeting not only the countries where they are stationed, but the United States itself. Apparently, Putin thinks it’s only okay for him to do such things. Putin said Russia is militarily ready for a Cuban Missile-style crisis and that his country currently has the edge when it comes to a first nuclear strike.

Turkey recently hosted the second “International Islamic Union Congress” in which Erdogan’s chief military advisor Adnan Tanriverdi delivered a speech detailing the aim of establishing with 61 Muslim countries a “rapid deployment force.” Tanriverdi made it obvious in 2009 his dream of an “army of Islam” to fight Israel. His company, SADAT, is aiding “Palestinian”-Arab jihadist organizations that target Israel. In February 2018, for instance, Israel’s internal security service, Shin Bet, said Hamas was funneling terror funds to the West Bank and Gaza through Turkey.
Switzerland, suddenly aware that arms it was sending to a Lebanese government official had gone missing, has decided to suspend arms exports to Lebanon. What makes this interesting is that the US has been supplying arms to the Lebanese army which could wind up in the hands of Hezbollah terrorists.

[Islam, invented in the 7th century AD, long after Christ’s ministry and the Bible was complete, does not worship the God of the Bible, and the one they call Isa is not Jesus of the Bible. Our God came in the flesh to die for our sins so that we could be saved. Islam’s Allah says the only guarantee of salvation is to wage war against all non-Muslims and also populate other countries in order to end up dominating and subjugating. Those who won’t convert to Islam must be under its domination or be killed.]
Islamization of the Nations
When nations continually disobey God and turn against Him, He uses their enemies against them. “The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand” (Deuteronomy 28:49; also see Numbers 33:55-56; Jeremiah 5:15; Judges 2:14).
Belgium has essentially been conquered by Islam. In Brussels, Belgium, where NATO and the EU have their offices, since 2001 Mohamed is the most common name for boys.” At the moment in Molenbeek, 21 municipal officials out of 46 are Muslim. “Belgium, like France, is an endangered country”, French journalist Eric Zemmour said to the media. “I do not understand how your authorities have let their country go.” All of Europe is being taken over, the sheeple willingly going to slaughter, so to speak.
Thousands of “Palestinian” protesters burst through a section of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount that has been closed by Israeli court order for over 15 years, chanting “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is greater). The Gate of Mercy, or Golden Gate, was sealed in 2003 because the group managing the area had ties to Hamass. Israeli officials believe illegal construction work has destroyed antiquities from periods of Jewish presence in the area. Now these protestors are declaring victory over their doings and vow their actions will escalate to torpedo the US peace proposal.

Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D), is the terrorist recruitment capitol of the United States, according to FBI statistics. Pamela Geller had this to say on her site: “I wonder if there had been Nazi/German-American Bund members of Congress during World War II, would the Democrats have lauded and rewarded them with coveted committee positions?
MoveOn.org and other left-wing agitators plan demonstrations across the US for Presidents Day in response to Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency for border-wall funding. The president tried to negotiate with the Democrats, but they left him no choice. These leftist politicians care nothing for no one except being in power. They give just enough freebies to get the votes. And look at the shape of the cities they run. God does not approve of the able-bodied not working for a living (2 Thessalonians 3:10).
Six Mexican cartel-tied illegal immigrants were arrested in North Carolina for running a major cross-border drug trafficking operation.
The Mexican government feeds its extreme homicide problem (over 33,000 in 2018: highest ever) due to its strict gun control laws, prohibiting law-abiding citizens from adequately protecting themselves, while the drug cartels grow and become more violent and also spread organized crime and its violence into the US. Where are Mexican criminal operations in the US? See this 2017 map from Business Insider (TC0 means “Transnational Criminal Organization.”)
Sixteen states and at least six Soros activist groups have filed or are preparing lawsuits taking aim at President Trump’s emergency declaration to build a wall on the nation’s porous border with Mexico.
>They Don’t Even Hide Their Global Agenda Anymore!
From Alex Newman regarding the recent World Government Summit that just took place this month: “They don’t even bother to hide it anymore…. A couple years ago they literally met for this World Goobermint Summit under the Arch of BA’AL!… It seems everyone is welcome in the emerging New World Order — globalists, communists, Islamists, technocrats, Big Business, and more — except patriotic Americans and Christian conservatives. Liberty-loving Americans must expose the subversive globalist agenda before it snuffs out liberty, prosperity, and Western Christian civilization worldwide.”

Chinese tech giant Alibaba has created a Communist propaganda app that tracks the amount of time users spend browsing so-called “inspirational” quotes from their narcissistic Chinese leader and watching short videos of his speeches and travels. They can win prizes by taking quizzes about Xi’s life and writings, but the apps primary purpose is to indoctrinate the masses with his political philosophy of “Xi Ping Thought.”
When you give apps your sensitive personal information, they share it. Millions of smartphone users confess their most intimate secrets to apps, including when they want to work on their belly fat or the price of the house they checked out last weekend. Other apps know users’ body weight, blood pressure, menstrual cycles or pregnancy status. Unbeknown to most people, in many cases that data is being shared with someone else: Facebook Inc.
From Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse: Is China’s Social Credit System a Preview of the Coming ‘Beast System’? “The Chinese government is banning enormous numbers of people from engaging in normal economic activities because they did something the government does not like…. As China’s system develops, it is inevitable that other nations will want to copy it. If you can get everyone in an entire country to fear they’re constantly being watched and that if they do “the wrong thing” they’ll be quickly punished, then you suddenly have a very powerful behavioral tool that can radically transform a society. It would basically be a dream come true for control freak politicians everywhere, and this kind of system would open the door for the worst kinds of tyranny…
In fact, former DHS head Michael Chertoff says that such a system is already starting to develop… This sounds eerily similar to the economic restrictions that the Bible says will be imposed someday upon those that refuse to participate in the coming beast system.”

Rabbi Berger of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion and Israel365 have initiated a project to create a golden crown to be presented to the messiah-king upon his arrival in Jerusalem. “Creating such a crown, he said, “and uniting the 70 nations of the world around the project, will hasten arrival of the king.” FYI: No one can hasten Christ’s arrival, and the Jews who don’t recognize their true Messiah Jesus will fall for the Antichrist instead who will rule all the nations of the earth.
“And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer” (Revelation 6:2).
