Special Prayer Request: The family of the 5-year-old child who was thrown off the third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in Minnesota appreciates your prayers. Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda was arrested. Aranda had been arrested in 2015 at this mall for throwing objects from the third-floor balcony and had other previous run-ins in which police were called. A GoFundMe account was set up for the child. If he survives, he will need extensive rehabilitation. The family appreciates everyone’s prayers.
In the US, a slow-moving weather system brought a host of impacts to a large swath of the country affecting 200 million people this week, including 30 inches of snow in some places; its strength rivaled the power of the bomb cyclone three weeks ago. There were hundreds of car accidents and at least two deaths. Some states saw the unusual phenomenon of brown snow due to powerful winds on the back side of the storm in the central US picking up dust and lofting it high into the atmosphere. These winds blew the dust northward, where it mixed with the snow and fell on the northern side of the storm. (In Siberia in Russia, black snow fell in February due to coal dust picked up by winds in the same manner).
Denver, Colorado, had temperatures near 80 degrees on Tuesday, and winter snow on Wednesday. The twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota had temperatures in the 70’s on Monday; by Thursday, they experienced full-blown blizzard conditions, including 8 to 12 inches of snow. In South Dakota where some places got 30 inches of snow, a rancher said it’s one of the worst spring storms he’s ever seen; and when it passes, he, along with thousands of South Dakota ranchers, will dig through snowbanks to find potentially thousands of frozen calves buried under the snow.”
In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, gusty winds ahead of a severe storm sent clouds of pollen hundreds of feet into the air, reminiscent of a phenomenon known as a haboob. These are more common in the deserts of the southwestern US.
In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at least ten people died when over a month’s rain (31cm; 13 inches) fell in one day. “These rains are absolutely abnormal for this time of year; none of us expected so much rain at this time,” Mayor Marcelo Crivella said. A landslide swallowed homes, floodwaters rose up in hospitals and power lines collapsed as streets turned into roaring rivers. The storm knocked down the walls of a caiman (alligator cousins) farm in a neighborhood controlled, like others in Rio de Janeiro, by a heavily armed criminal group. This made the local authorities reluctant to enter and left the creatures, which can grow to be 11 feet long, to swim through the flooded streets, terrifying residents.
In Northern Europe, residents felt like the calendar flipped back to March as Arctic air put April warmth on hold into this weekend. The biggest shock has been felt from the Netherlands to Poland, where temperatures soared well above normal prior to the arrival of the cold air.
Strong Earthquakes (Over 6.0 unless it’s shallow and/or hits a populated area)
April 9, in the ocean far off the coast of El Salvador
April 11, 6.1 off the coast of Japan
April 12, 6.8 off the coast of Indonesia
April 13, a shallow therefore strong 5.3 earthquake hit Hawaii’s Big Island causing rockfalls and power outages.
Pre-cut melon (and melon mixed with other fruit) sold at Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Target, Kroger and Whole Foods has been voluntarily recalled due to the possibility of salmonella. 93 cases have been reported from nine states: Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. Twenty-three people have been hospitalized.
New York City has declared a public health emergency in parts of Brooklyn, ordering all residents to be vaccinated to fight a measles outbreak concentrated in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community where some residents oppose vaccines on religious grounds — although neither Jewish texts nor local Jewish authorities advise against vaccination. Since October, 285 cases of measles have been confirmed in New York City, according to the CDC. None proved fatal, but 21 patients required hospitalization and five were admitted to intensive care.
Candida Auris, a mysterious and deadly infection, is spanning the globe in a climate of secrecy:
Last May, an elderly man was admitted to the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood test revealed that he was infected with a newly discovered germ (Candida Auris) as deadly as it was mysterious. Doctors swiftly isolated him in the intensive care unit. The man died after 90 days in the hospital, but C. Auris did not. Tests showed it was everywhere in his room, so invasive that the hospital needed special cleaning equipment and had to rip out some of the ceiling and floor tiles to eradicate it.
“Everything was positive — the walls, the bed, the doors, the curtains, the phones, the sink, the whiteboard, the poles, the pump,” said Dr. Scott Lorin, the hospital’s president. “The mattress, the bed rails, the canister holes, the window shades, the ceiling, everything in the room was positive.”
- Auris is so tenacious, in part, because it is impervious to major antifungal medications, making it a new example of one of the world’s most intractable health threats: the rise of drug-resistant infections. Those with weak immune systems are especially at risk.
A top Red Cross official said he’s “more concerned than I have ever been” about the possible regional spread of the Ebola virus after a new spike in cases, as the World Health Organization met on whether to declare the outbreak in Congo an international health emergency.
Last Days Return to Days of Lot
A Norwegian CEO who ran poster campaigns trying to recruit young women to become “sugar babies” to older men outside university campuses has been charged with “public incitement to debauchery” in Belgium. Sigurd Vedal, 47, began his ‘Rich Meet Beautiful’ website in Scandinavia, launching a recruitment drive to expand the business in Belgium in 2018 with a promise to provide young when with a “Fifty Shades of Grey” experience.
University of Notre Dame President John I. Jenkins has rejected calls to install an Internet filter on campus that would block pornography.
In New York, a rabbinical school knew for three years that a student was gay and planned give him semicha (ordination) as a rabbi until he got engaged to his gay lover in a very public way and then moved in with him. Leftists/LGBTQ’s are rallying to support the student, saying he should still be allowed to be a rabbi.
In Colorado, despite parent attempts to opt children as young as five out of presentations telling them traditional gender roles are evil and people can be whatever sex they feel like, Superior Elementary School in Boulder Valley School District showed the material anyway. The Democrats in the Colorado State Assembly are pushing for a “Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education” bill, HB19-1032. This bill will require schools to teach children specific topics such as “sexual experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals,” while the bill stipulates religious tenets or doctrines may not even be “implicitly” taught.
In Sweden, the Diocese of Västerås, a division of the Church of Sweden, is now giving away an LGBTQ guide for “Christian queer kids.” This guide describes Jesus as “queer” and Joseph as a transvestite.
Maine state Rep. Ryan Fecteau and state Sen. Linda Sanborn, both Democrats, introduced a bill that would make it illegal for any mental health professional to respond to children who express unwanted sexual attractions or gender confusion by helping them to explore these conflicted feelings or perceptions.
A Texas family court is demanding that a 6-year-old boy be chemically castrated against his father’s wishes. The child’s mother is pushing for the transition, yet the child doesn’t present himself as a girl when he’s with his father.
Gay mayor Pete Buttigieg who is running for president of the United States says Christianity must move on from its old model to be more ‘inclusive’ and ‘humane’ in order to accommodate the LGBTQ etc. lifestyle. No, Pete. It’s more humane to tell them the truth rather than flattering them into hell.
The so-called Equality Act going through Congress is really the homosexual supremacy Act. The Left has deceived more people by this one word than perhaps by any other. After all, who could be against equality? But the reality is that not all behaviors are equal in moral value and should not be treated the same. The behavior of a man engaged in the act of sodomy with a homosexual partner is not morally equivalent to the behavior of a man who is engaged in loving and conjugal union with the wife of his youth. It is moral blindness and even stupidity to pretend otherwise.
A Canadian tribunal fined Bill Whatcott $55,000 for “misgendering” someone. He expressed Christian views on “transgenderism” and called a biological male a man. And it’s not just Canada. Last month, a Catholic journalist in England was interrogated by police at her house after she “misgendered” a child with whom she had appeared on TV. And we’re sure you’ve all heard of school children being threatened with punishment for so-called “misgendering” another child who has “changed their gender identity.”
Tasmania has become Australia’s first state to make listing gender optional on birth certificates. The bill also removes a condition that required “transgenders” to have surgery before their gender was recognized (not that adding or cutting off anything changes that in reality, as we know).
Iniquity (lawless/wickedness) Shall Abound
Kellie Collins, a Democrat former congressional candidate in Georgia’s 10th District, who touted her support for responsible gun regulation to protect the community, shot and killed her campaign manager/ boyfriend who lived with her, then stole his SUV.
In Chicago, warm weather last weekend brought out the killing. 24 people were shot in one day. Chicago is a sanctuary city and is proud of it. Shootings have spiked nearly 60% at the start of April compared to last year. At least 88 people have been shot within city limits in the first 10 days of April, Here’s just one example: Last Saturday, six were wounded, including two children, when two men opened fire on a baby shower in Englewood. Gun laws? Chicago has them. But the criminals will always get their hands on them, leaving the innocent in danger.
In Florida, over two dozen possible graves were discovered at the site of the notorious Arthur G. Dozier reform school for boys, years after researchers found an estimated 50 unmarked graves on school grounds. Several men who attended the school as young boys alleged that they were savagely battered with leather straps by administrators and staff. Others told of how some students were beaten to death.
It’s a well-known fact that serial killers start out as animal abusers. It’s also known that they don’t they get the punishment they deserve for abusing animals, which God warns against (Proverbs 12:10).
In Portland, Oregon, Fidel Lopez was given the maximum 60 days in jail for sexually abusing a small dog that was injured so badly internally it had to be euthanized. This pervert should be euthanized. Who wants such as this walking the streets?
In China, a sadistic medical student (intern at a burn center, ironically) poured a pot of boiling water over his puppy for pooing in its crate, and posted it online. Classmates have accused him of regularly punishing his pet whenever he’s reprimanded by his supervisors and teachers. They also claim he starved a small dog to death and that he often posts videos of his animal abuse, captioning his footage: “Here’s my latest work.” According to reports, concerned classmates and animal rights volunteers who came across the video rescued the dog. Tens of thousands of social media users demanded action from Nantong University, which released a statement saying it had looked into the incident and referred Chen to the police.
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed into law today a bill targeting elderly and disabled people that legalizes assisted suicide statewide. New Jersey will force taxpayers to fund the suicides. This makes the 7th state to legalize assisted suicide.
In Massachusetts, during a recent event sponsored by Boston College’s Pro-Life Club, a female student stood in front of a microphone and said a baby born alive during a botched abortion should not receive medical care because science has determined that it’s not a baby. Indoctrinated group-think.
In Argentina, a group of teachers belonging to a radical feminist group engaged in a pro-abortion campaign distributed to children sugar-coated treats resembling Easter eggs that bore the slogan “Aborta Ya,” as part of a wider effort they called “Abort the little surprise.”
Failed Georgia 2018 Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said her state’s pro-life “Heartbeat” bill which would ban abortions after six weeks is “evil” and “bad for business.”
In Kentucky, a federal appeals panel ruled to uphold a 2017 Kentucky law requiring doctors to perform an ultrasound and present the resulting image to women aborting their pregnancies. Under the law, HB2, physicians must show an ultrasound image and play audio of the fetal heartbeat before a woman is allowed to have an abortion. However, a women is permitted to look away from the ultrasound and ask that the volume of the heartbeat, if present, be turned down. The left, as usual, is protesting the bill.
California caved to Planned Parenthood’s demands in forcing churches to fund abortions. Three churches filed a notice of appeal, challenging the mandate that forces churches to pay for elective abortions in their health insurance plans.
A California Assembly committee has passed a bill that would put Planned Parenthood’s phone number in the pocket of every California student age 12 – 24. Every student ID will include the number of “a sexual or reproductive health hotline.”
A California Senate Committee recently affirmed a law which, if enacted, would require public universities in California to provide students with free access to “the abortion pill.”
An Illinois abortion facility that makes its living aborting viable, later-term unborn babies has a new billboard advertising to women in Missouri. “Welcome to Illinois, where you can get a safe, legal abortion,” the billboard by Hope Clinic for Women says. It is located on the interstate near the state border. The abortion facility hopes to target women from Missouri, where abortions are more heavily restricted than in Illinois. Its website also tells women how they can get a taxpayer-funded abortion in Illinois.
Google marked the pro-life film “Unplanned” as “propaganda.” Yet literal Nazi propaganda films are labeled “history.”
Read this about a bride who wanted her bridesmaid to have an abortion because she was having a child-free wedding.
South Korea’s ban on abortion has been ruled unconstitutional in a historic court decision.
Divide and Conquer Indoctrination
In Ohio, Democrat state representative Janine R. Boyd proposed an amendment to Ohio’s heartbeat bill (no abortions after heartbeat detected) that seeks an exemption for African-American women, citing historical “rape and forced birth imposed on enslaved women.”
Candice Owens rightfully blasted a Dem lawmaker in a bogus ‘hate crimes’ hearing for misconstruing her remarks, even though another Democrat tried to silence her, also misconstruing the remarks she’d just made. Candice said, “Let me be clear; the hearing today is not about white nationalism or hate crimes. It is about fear mongering, power and control. It is a preview of a Democrat 2020 election strategy the same as the Democrat 2016 election strategy.” Owens said the objective “is to scare blacks, Hispanics, gays and Muslims into helping them censor dissenting opinions ultimately to helping them regain control of our country’s narrative which they feel that they lost.” She said white nationalism isn’t the true issue and that the biggest scandal is the Democrat Party’s fear-mongering to “brown people” and keeping minorities “perpetual victims.” Amen. She blasted the room with the truth!
Border Disorder (Taking Down Western Nations)
The fiend who stalked and raped a New Jersey jogger before drowning her in a lake is an illegal immigrant from Honduras who had already been kicked out of the US twice before, authorities said Thursday. Jorge Rios, 33, was deported from the US first in 2003 and then again in 2004, but snuck back across the border at some point after that.
Mexican Border State Police were attacked with grenades and rifles near El Paso, Texas. A group of cartel gunmen sprayed rifle fire and tossed two grenades at the government installation which houses the command staff of the state police commission. A short time later, security elements stopped a Ford vehicle with a Texas license plate and subsequently arrested both occupants, later identified as Javier H. R. and Ana G. C. A total of nine, 9mm rounds of ammunition were found inside the vehicle.
Mexican authorities said a group of about 350 migrants broke the locks on a gate at the Guatemalan border Friday and forced their way into southern Mexico to join a larger group of migrants trying to make their way toward the US.
In more leftist projection, lies and alibis, CNN National Security Analyst Samantha Vinograd claimed that Obama only separated migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border “for their protection” during a panel discussion in which pundits attacked President Trump’s border policies. Trump wants the children protected from smugglers who pose as family, but the left refuses to admit that. [Those photos of children/adults in cages were actually taken during Obama’s presidency].
From Breitbart: There are over 10,000 illegal aliens in the US from countries that sponsor terrorism. Of these 10,000, over 6,000 are from Iran (61%), 20% from Syria, 18% from Sudan. They’ve been ordered deported by ICE or have pending orders, despite remaining here. The overwhelming majority of illegal aliens, once resettled, are never deported. There are over 1.7 million illegal aliens in the US who have not been deported despite being ordered deported or having pending deportation orders. US intelligence officials have stated there are Iranian sleeper cells in the US ready and waiting for the order.
Sanctuary cities/states pose a danger in this country. For instance, California has the largest population of Iranians outside of Iran. California is not cooperating with immigration authorities, so their sanctuary law is preventing ICE from removing these individuals. Of that number 10,000 … 6,000 of these individuals are Iranian.
Despite sanctuary cities shielding all illegal aliens from deportation, regardless of their criminal history, ICE agents were able to deport on average about 44 illegal aliens in the last two fiscal years who were known or suspected terrorists. The Diversity Visa Lottery, which imports over 50,000 random foreign nationals to the country every year through a random drawing — has brought nearly 30,000 legal immigrants to the US in the last decade from countries sponsoring terrorism (about 30% of all Visa Lottery immigrants).
Prominent Swedish lawmaker Björn Söder says (Marxist) George Soros’s influence on European politics and policies make him “one of the most dangerous men” in Europe.
Large parts of Socialist Venezuela have been hit by yet another power blackout. Its dictator Maduro is determined to hold on to his illegitimate rule.
The Marxist Pope Francis is pushing more propaganda. At the serpent-like designed papal audience hall this week, he blamed the US and Europe for the deaths of children in Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan, stating there would be no wars if wealthy Western countries didn’t manufacture arms. Hmm… since he doesn’t bother to read the Bible and chooses to ignore history… well, you get the picture.
Global Governance Controlling Everything
The former UN Under-Secretary-General is calling for a one world currency.
Healthcare rationing is a regular part of the United Kingdom, which has nationalized healthcare in a way Democrats in America want to bring here. Just one example of how well it’s NOT working is this: Thousands of elderly patients are going blind due to eye-surgery rationing.
Green, Nature-Worship Agenda: In London, older cars will be charged for alleged pollution. Estimates are that about 40,000 vehicles will be affected every day.
In Italy: fighting against the global agenda, Mussolini’s great-grandson is running as a candidate in European elections. He said he is not a fascist as was his great grandfather. He said fascism is now something for “historians to study.” Anyone worried about its revival, he said, “is seeing imaginary enemies.” He said, “I see other dangers: The thought police, globalism, the dictatorship of political correctness, uncontrolled immigration a few small financial groups that control everything, Islamic extremism.”
Regarding Britain and Brexit: EU leaders are to meet for an emergency summit in Brussels to decide whether to offer the UK another delay to Brexit. Let’s face it. The EU is trying to make Britain an example of what happens to countries that try to free themselves from the globalist grasp. They’re making it as difficult as possible.
Islamization of the Nations
San Diego, California, parents have prevailed (for now) over the Muslim group CAIR’s indoctrination program in public schools. Hamas-linked CAIR (associated also with Muslim brotherhood, designated as a terrorist organization) is claiming that resistance to their propaganda initiative is a sign of “Islamophobia.” But in reality, this group has no business in public (or private) schools. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department.
The UK is among many countries including Germany, Netherlands and Australia who penalize volunteers who fought ISIS alongside Kurdish allies, meanwhile, a “significant portion” of returned ISIS jihadis are considered no longer to be a security concern. These countries are ever anxious to appease their Muslim populations.`
A London Catholic school hired a Muslim to teach vital GCSE and A-Level lessons to teenagers. Faisal Ahmed was given the green light by the elite teacher training program TeachFirst despite having ‘extreme difficulty with handwriting,’ and problems with reading and understanding ‘written tests.’ TeachFirst didn’t inform the school of Ahmed’s condition. After being suspended, Ahmed quit in anger and is suing the school for constructive dismissal and disability discrimination.
In Germany, the parents of a young boy have been fined from a German court after they kept their child from going to school to avoid a trip to a local mosque.
Traitorous Last Days (2 Timothy 3)
Who are the real traitors here? It’s not him. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested by British police on Thursday after they were invited into the Ecuadorean embassy where he has been holed up since 2012. The Deep State claims such as from the likes of Bush and McCain that he caused harm to US foreign sources is bogus. It was a Guardian journalist, not WikiLeaks, that led to the full unredacted cables leaking to third parties on the web that WikiLeaks published as well — and not before Assange attempted to warn the office of Hillary Clinton, then U.S. Sec of State about the unintended leak of the cables. WikiLeaks had a major impact on the news cycle during the 2016 presidential election, releasing a number of damaging leaks exposing corruption in the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Attorney General William Barr has formed a team to investigate FBI and DOJ shenanigans during the summer before the 2016 election to try to ensure a Clinton victory.
One of the superdelegates Hillary used to rig the primary against Bernie Sanders may be headed to prison. Former United Auto Workers vice president Norwood Jewell became the highest-ranking labor official to plead guilty to violating federal labor law. Jewell admitted to receiving luxury goods and lavish golf trips from the Chrysler executives he was supposed to be negotiating against. Still, “Democrats are keeping someone who’s headed to prison on their leadership team in Michigan, and it shows that corruption is alive and well within their ranks.”
Surprisingly, the editorial board of the Boston Herald published a piece on Monday titled “Democrats and toxic media at their worst,” revealing how top names in the news media purposely twist the president’s words to mislead and divide the public. “The left and its compliant media are willfully reporting false news to the American people,” the Herald’s editors said.
Hackers accessed and posted “a mix of personal and government email addresses, job titles, phone numbers and their postal addresses.” Needless to say, the deliberate targeting of law enforcement in this age of threats and intimidation puts many people in danger.
Hatred of Christianity
A California city is taking a symbolic pro-LGBTQ stand against the Christian-owned Chick-fil-A restaurant. San Jose city council members voted unanimously to hang rainbow flags and pink and blue pro-transgender rights flags outside the Chick-fil-A that’s scheduled to open inside the San Jose International Airport in May. There have been campaigns around the country, including San Antonio, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, to try to prevent new Chick-fil-A locations from opening in their communities.
Hatred of the Jewish People and Israel
Germany gave $426,037 to a Muslim group that calls for Israel’s destruction. They only cut funding after this was exposed.
At a time when much of Africa is strengthening its ties with Israel, the racist and corrupt government of South Africa has chosen to downgrade its ties with Israel, at the behest of the terrorists in the so-called “Palestinian” Authority. It has downgraded its embassy in Israel to a liaison office.
While the “Palestinian” Authority (aka PLO) and Hamas are busy beating up each other’s supporters, pro-“Palestinian” activists on US and Canadian university campuses are busy blaming Israel for “Palestinian” woes. For these alleged activists — who are remarkably passive when it comes to truly assisting “Palestinians” — their protests seem more about hating Israel than anything else. If they really cared about the “Palestinians,” they might stop abusing Israel long enough to notice the abuse that the “Palestinian” leaders inflict on their own people.
German police raided offices belonging to Islamic organizations suspected of financing the “Palestinian” militant group Hamas under the guise of humanitarian aid. The EU designated Hamas to be a terrorist organization.
Apostasy and Doctrines of Devils
For the first time in history, atheists constitute the largest religious group in America. According to the General Social Survey, the number of Americans who have no religion has increased 266% over the past three decades and now account for 23.1% of the population, just barely edging out Catholics and Evangelicals as the nation’s dominant faith. Mainline Protestant churches have suffered the greatest collapse, declining 62.5% since 1982 and now comprising just 10.8% of the US population.
Tunisian popstar Lamiri claims she’s the long-awaited Islamic messiah, al-Mahdi.
The rabidly anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam cult claims to be the Messiah in a newly unearthed rant from February.
Tom Cruise is said to be “considered a deity within Scientology.” Former church member Leah Remini has said, “He is second to David Miscavige — the savior of the free world.” Cruise was seen March 9 at the front of a celebration of the holiest day of the Scientology calendar — L. Ron Hubbard’s March 13 birthday — at the church’s spiritual mecca in Clearwater, Fla.
Christians are called to be strong and courageous. But that’s not what Christian students are being taught on many Christian college campuses today. Too often, they’re taught to fear and to hide behind a false pretense of grace while extending none. Christian writer, speaker and author Matt Walsh was protested by staff and students at Baylor University who didn’t want to hear a biblical truths about abortion, marriage and gender.
Crosses on graves in a cemetery in Italy are being covered up with black cloth during ceremonies involving other religions.
Survivors of sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic nuns are starting to speak out. Read here and here. It should be no surprise if you’ve already read the horrifying reports of physical abuse children have suffered at certain Catholic orphanages by nuns, also bodies of babies and children being found in sewage storage tanks. Examples are here and here.
Pope Benedict is blaming the sexual revolution of the 60s for priests’ sexual abuse in the Catholic church. No, it’s been this way from its beginning. Read “History of Clergy Abuse in the Catholic Church” by Rev. Thomas Doyle. “This is an embarrassing letter,” said Brian Flanagan, professor of theology at Marymount University in VA. “The idea that ecclesial abuse of children was a result of the 1960s, a supposed collapse of moral theology, and ‘conciliarity’ (the Church after the 1962-65 Second Vatican Council) is an embarrassingly wrong explanation for the systemic abuse of children and its cover-up.”
Idol worship: In New York City his week, Catholics lined up to worship a 150-year-old preserved heart of a dead French priest. This ‘heart is on tour and has been to 28 states so far – and will visit schools.
Security researchers have discovered a powerful surveillance app first designed for Android devices can now target victims with iPhones. The spy app, found by researchers at mobile security firm Lookout, said its developer abused their Apple-issued enterprise certificates to bypass the tech giant’s app store to infect unsuspecting victims.
In China, it’s being claimed that police are seizing residents’ phones and installing spyware. Offenders are said to be sent to “re-education” camps.
Rise of the Kings of the East
China’s military is already in the Caribbean and in Cuba, apparently to collect signals intelligence from the US. Now they’re moving closer—55 miles east of Palm Beach, Florida on Grand Bahama Island, and there are concerns this facility will become a Chinese naval base. Will the Pentagon have to contend with Chinese warships at Freeport? There’s a “Red Storm Rising” just miles from America’s shores. “In point of fact, the entire hemisphere is on fire,” said Lou Dobbs. “China and Russia are engaging us in almost every quarter in this hemisphere. Russia and China in Venezuela, but China throughout the hemisphere and throughout the Caribbean.”
China is distributing intrusive tools of surveillance and social control throughout Latin America to “surround the US” with potential threats, warns a top senator, Cory Gardner. “China’s goal is to displace the US, and they can do that by wreaking havoc in the Western Hemisphere.”
Wars and Rumors of Wars
Israel is the key to last days prophecy. The main players against Israel are aligned for the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39, and supporting players are aligning.
A number of Iranian forces were reportedly killed in an Israeli airstrike on a military site in Syria in western Hama province overnight Friday-Saturday.
Iranian lawmakers don’t just chant “Death to Israel.” They also chant “Death to America” as they just did when convening Tuesday for an open session of parliament.
As most surely know, Prime Minister Netanyahu was re-elected this week. In a pre-election interview, he said a “Palestinian” state such as the one most people talk about will not be created. He also promised to annex portions of the West Bank territory in Area C, in which all of the Israeli settlements are located. “I will apply sovereignty,” Netanyahu said. It’s the first time since he took office in 2009 that he has used the word “sovereignty” when speaking of Judea and Samaria.
The Palestinian Authority (aka PLO) warned Prime Minister Netanyahu about any attempt to declare its sovereignty over the West Bank, saying it will lead “to a cycle of violence and chaos.” And as we’ve already heard, Syria is livid over the US recognizing sovereignty over the Golan (mountains of Israel -Ezekiel 38-39) and vows to re-conquer it.
Turkey’s President Erdogan said he’s going ahead with the controversial purchase of a Russian air-defense system despite US objections. We should expect nothing less since Turkey will be part of the Russian-Arab invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39).
Two countries (Libya and Sudan) who will be part of the prophesied Ezekiel 38-39 invasion of Israel are at this same time undergoing coup attempts:
In Libya, Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar launched an invasion to overthrow the internationally-recognized government this week.
Sudan’s armed forces will make an important announcement soon, state TV said on Thursday as troops were deployed in Khartoum amid speculation that a coup attempt was underway against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir after months of protests.
Signs in the Heavens?
Scientists say Earth’s magnetic field is getting significantly weaker, the magnetic north pole is shifting at an accelerating pace, and that a sudden pole shift could potentially cause “trillions of dollars” in damage.
