Too Late to Turn Back: We’ve Gone Beyond the Tipping Point
“Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north… Also by watering, he wearieth the thick cloud… it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them… He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy. Hearken unto this…” (Job 37:9-14).
The last 12 months have been the wettest in all of US history, and this has created horrific conditions for farmers. Endless rain and historic flooding has stretched on for months, so many farmers haven’t been able to plant crops; and a lot of the crops that have been planted are struggling.
The month of May saw 516 tornadoes in the heartland of the US; and in the past two weeks, not a day went by without tornadoes. But amid these disasters, there was what some are calling miraculous. The monster twister that struck Dayton, Ohio, on Memorial Day was headed straight for a children’s hospital but suddenly swerved from its path. Also, although several people died and dozens were injured, it’s amazing that these figures weren’t higher.
The following explanation is being given for the severe tornadic outbreak: Cold trough from the Northwest and high-pressure ridge from the Southeast sending forced warm, moist air into the central US where the two air masses collided/converged.
Explain all they want, but those who know Bible prophecy see the prophesied “convergence” of the signs Jesus gave that herald His soon return. We’re seeing the beginnings of sorrows (birth pangs) already which will only increase in the Tribulation. Wickedness is increasing daily—especially against children who hold a special place in “God’s heart.” He’s not going to stand by and watch them continue to be murdered or destroyed by perverting their minds and bodies. In the US, for example, once the most blessed nation on Earth, we’re seeing God’s hand being removed; and our “heartland” is being destroyed. More about that in the following paragraphs.
The heartland of the United States also continues to suffer from unrelenting rain and record flooding, causing several deaths. Relentless flooding inundated communities and damaged or spilled over levees on three major rivers in two states on Friday.
The Army Corps plans to divert the river to ease high water levels. The Mississippi is set gush into a large part of rural Louisiana. The Morganza Floodway may be opened again for only the third time in history. The Mississippi River runs vertically and divides the entire United States. Several days ago, the Mississippi broke a century-old record when it reached 136 days in flood stage.
In the US Southeast, residents had to continue taking necessary precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses as record-breaking heat held firm. Dozens of record highs have been broken amid the heat wave since it began late last week.
Weather watchers are keeping an eye on what could become Tropical Storm “Barry” in the Gulf. These three variables: weak environmental shear, upper-level divergence, and low-level convergence, will allow this area of convection to organize quickly as long as it can remain over water long enough.
In Israel, a wave of massive bushfires caused by the extreme heatwave left dozens of families without homes as entire neighborhoods were engulfed by the flames. Some 16 people suffered smoke inhalation and 13 others had light burns, including some of the 1,000 firefighters who battled at least 1,023 conflagrations across the country.
Great Earthquakes in Divers Places
Last Sunday a massive 8.0 magnitude earthquake struck the Amazon jungle in a sparsely populated area of Peru. One death was reported. It was the largest earthquake to hit Peru in 12 years, and other areas of “the Ring of Fire” experienced unusual shaking afterwards. California experience over 80 small quakes.
On May 27, a 5.8 earthquake struck off the coast of Alaska that awoke residents in the night.
On May 30, a 6.6 earthquake struck off the coast of El Salvador.
On May 31, a 6.1 earthquake struck off the coast of the Philippines.
A strange seismic event off the coast of Africa has led scientists to a mighty finding: the discovery of the largest underwater volcanic eruption ever recorded – a seismic hum that circled the world, but no one could figure out what sparked it.
Mt. Etna in Sicily is erupting again.
Evil Days of Noah and Lot Returned
Children are being groomed by sexual predators who hack video game apps, such as the popular game Roblox. For example: One child’s avatar was shown being raped.
In Florida, ten people have been arrested in a human trafficking case of a young teen. Her parent or guardian was selling her for sex. The house she was kept in had no furniture or appliances and was filthy with animal and human feces on the floor. The only room kept presentable was the room used for sex acts. Among those arrested are a firefighter/nurse and a restaurant chef. Names, photos and occupations are listed. As of this writing, a judge has reduced the bonds of the two mentioned to $25,000 (which they only pay a small percentage of), so they’re out of jail with ankle bracelets.
Three Ohio “pastors” have been using the pulpit as a guise for evil purposes. Cordell Jenkins, Anthony Haynes, and Kenneth Butler have been arrested for conspiracy to sex traffic children. Haynes’ wife Alisa and stepdaughter Alexis Fortune have also been arrested. They kidnapped one teen victim, pointed a gun at her, and choked her with a computer cord to convince her not to testify.
One of the victims who’d come to church had been sexually abused by family members and was in the foster care system. Haynes pledged in front of the congregation to protect her and serve as a father figure, but instead began grooming her for sex when she turned 14, at first forcing her to perform sex acts in front of him. All three of these so-called pastors sexually abused her, including in the church (as well as other minor teens). The foster child today is 19 and has not let these creatures keep her away from knowing Christ as her Savior.
In Kentucky, lawsuits are unveiling a culture of teen sex abuse in Louisville’s police mentorship program.
City officials in Leander, Texas, found themselves mired in controversy after the city’s library (taxpayer-funded of course) announced it would host “Drag Queen Story Hour” for children. So Open Cathedral “church” which meets in a local elementary school announced they’d rent a room at the library and host the event on June 15th. The church’s pastor, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, said he founded the church because he “was tired of church sucking.” [In other words, he wanted to start a “church” that Satan would approve of].
An Ohio public library intended to host a “Drag 101” for ages 12 to 17 taught by Miss Gay Ohio who is a drag queen. Due to some complaints that the library deemed “veiled threats,” the event was cancelled at the library and moved to another location. The library spokeswoman was upset at the cancellation, calling it “heartbreaking.” No, what’s heartbreaking is that this indoctrination is going on at all.
In Pennsylvania, Landsdowne Penn Wood high school hosted a drag show on May 22 during school hours as part of an all-day event titled “Coming Home.”
Just hearing about this one from March: In DC, George Washington University held “Drag Purim” to mark the Jewish holiday of Purim (that celebrates the failure of an attempted genocide of the Jews). Performers collected tips. It was hosted by Jewish Voice for “Peace,” a pro-“Palestinian” student organization. The student coordinator said, “I just kind of connected the things – Purim is a holiday where you dress up and you’re merry and celebrate the spirit of resistance; and drag is about dressing up and the spirit of resistance.”
New Gillette ad promotes transgenders. Estimates say only 1/2 of 1% identify as “trans,” and less than 5% as gay. Yet this agenda wields power over the rest of us. How? It’s Satan doing his work to destroy as many as he can. A previous Gillette ad pushed men to be effeminate. Now they’re showing a girl (who takes male hormones) shaving her face under guidance of her dad. And the she/he shaver says “Everybody around me is transitioning.” We must take a stand against this indoctrination perpetrated on our preschoolers and up, or we’ll answer to God for why we didn’t!
The Satanic Temple says the Supreme Court’s ruling that states can decide to dispose of the bodies of aborted unborn babies in a dignified manner is against its religion. The Satanic Temple leader who calls himself “Lucien Greaves” said, “This law clearly places an undue burden on the religious practices of The Satanic Temple by interfering with burial rites.” Let that sink in… How far we’ve fallen when the IRS deems the Satanic Temple a tax-exempt religious organization and cities across the US allow After-School Satan Clubs in public schools. Comments under articles regarding abortion show how depraved people have become. Example: The Hill (centrist—neither left nor right) reported on this. Read people’s comments under the article at this link, if you dare.
The Illinois House has passed an abortion bills even worse than New York’s. They include a repeal of a ban on the gruesome “partial-birth” abortions; virtually eliminating all protections for preborn children; allowing infanticide; removing conscience protection laws for health care workers; allowing taxpayer funding for abortion; allowing minors to obtain abortions without parental notification, etc. The bills are so extreme that thousands of citizens flooded the Illinois state capitol building in protest.
Perverse Traitors, Liars and Hypocrites
Disney and Netflix are considering boycotting Georgia due to its recent pro-life abortion ruling. Yet they film in countries where abortion is illegal, as well as homosexuality. And they film in China, yet China is holding tons of Muslims in internment camps. The hypocrisy never ceases to amaze those who still have the ability to reason.
Despite Creepy Joe Biden saying he would start respecting personal boundaries, he’s at it again. He honed in on a 10-year-old girl, saying, I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking, then led her away for a photo op while doing his familiar tactics of touching, smelling and whispering in the ear. If he has this little self-control in public, what must he do in secret? And what’s just as creepy are the adults who laugh and clap along.
In Democrat-run Hawaii, there will be no jail time for a former HPD officer charged with 7 counts of sexual assault of a child starting in 2004 when the girl was 5, and continuing until 2008. He only faces 5 years’ probation. “At some point, rational, civilized people are not going to live with this degrading, inhuman, totalitarianism. On the left, criminals are heroes, truthtellers are hate speech criminals, Islam is the state religion and Christianity is banned. And all the while a rolling coup against the president continues.”
California Democrat assemblywoman Luz Rivas introduced a bill that would give filmmakers additional tax credit if they relocate their productions to California from states that are pro-life. She, like others who want abortion on demand, actually call abortion restrictions shameful, abhorrent, etc.
A former high-level official from within the UN blew the whistle on a pedophilia network of massive proportions involving thousands of UN employees (under the guise of rendering aid) wreaking havoc on tens of thousands of innocent children over the last decade – 3,300 pedophiles and 60,000 rapes. Yet where are the arrests?
Canada’s boy leader, Justin Trudeau, plans to confront US Vice President Pence on state abortion restrictions.
It has been discovered that Democrat Dianne Feinstein who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee secretly met with an Iranian official amid the flaring tensions. She claims it was approved, but it wasn’t.
“I will give children [those not qualified to lead] to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them… the base against the honourable. The shew 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… As for my people, children are their oppressors, and [haughty] 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” (Isaiah 3, Last stage in the fall of nations, always same pattern all through history).
Nightmare in LA: “Democrats know the best way to stay in power is to promise free stuff to the masses; cradle to grave welfare. But there may soon be an even larger problem with progressive policies than anyone imagined. Dr. Drew Pinsky warns homelessness and trash are a growing problem for residents in Los Angeles; and as the garbage piles up, so do the rats, fueling concerns about flea-borne typhus, according to a report this week.” Pinsky believes the mentally ill will suffer the most. “It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Pinsky said. “I feel like I’m on a train track waving at the train and the train is going to go off the bridge. The bridge is out.”
In Hawaii, rat lungworm disease has sickened three more visitors, bringing the total to 10 for 2018 and five so far this year. The three cases newly confirmed by the CDC are unrelated, and affected three adult travelers from mainland United States.
In crisis-hit socialist Venezuela, malaria is back with a vengeance.
North Korea is now reporting the deadly African swine fever virus affecting pigs. This disease has spread throughout China, the world’s biggest pork producer, and is causing a huge shortage of pork locally and an economic impact on the meat and feed industry globally. The virus has spread to other Asian countries as well. The situation will continue to evolve due to significant contamination of the meat and meat products supply chain and practices such as garbage feeding that may not be appropriately regulated.
In the Congo, the death toll continues to rise at a staggering rate. Charities now urging the UN to step up efforts to the highest possible threat level. “There has never been an epidemic of this complexity or size in the DRC.” Also, villagers killed a health worker this week and looted a treatment center.
Research has found that hundreds of the world’s rivers are awash with “dangerous levels of antibiotics.” Even when relatively low levels of the drug are found, it could increase the likelihood of the development and spread of antibiotic resistance.
Last Days 2 Timothy 3 Generation
From Michael Snyder: “Millennials reject traditional American values more than any other generation that has come before them by a very wide margin. They are selfish, rude, arrogant, boastful, proud, disrespectful, ungrateful, undisciplined, slothful and completely obsessed with themselves. One study found they’re the most narcissistic generation in American history. They feel entitled to everything, but they don’t want to work for it. They want to be treated like kings and queens, but they don’t see a problem with treating others like dirt. Of course, there are plenty of young adults that are shining exceptions; but, in general, young adults under age 30 in America today are a complete mess.”
I would add that there are plenty of older Americans who are the same way. They are the leftists responsible for raising, educating and leading these millennials.
Apostasy and Doctrines of Demons
The Vision Church of Atlanta, Georgia, a “progressive” congregation, has added a psychic medium who claims to commune with the dead. Lakara Foster, a licensed “minister” said, “Being a medium allows me to communicate with our loved ones who are departed. She claims this is a gift from God. The Bible says otherwise in very strong terms.
On that note, a Bible teacher (popular among Christians), when commenting on the passing of a friend, spoke to him rather than about him. He’s been warned by a number of brethren about the dangerous practice of necromancy, called detestable by God. But he refuses to listen, and this latest action appears to show defiance. Money and fame… the love of it causes many to fall. So does pride.
In Britain, the Methodist church is under pressure in light of dramatic changes to the UK’s marriage laws in the last 15 years, with Parliament approving civil partnerships in 2004, followed by gay marriage a decade later. The church’s leadership next month will debate recommendations from a task group to relax rules so ministers can conduct same-sex wedding ceremonies in their chapels. The proposal also suggests Methodist churches help cohabiting couples mark milestones in their relationship.
In Israel, the first openly gay Orthodox rabbi has been ordained in Jerusalem.
Iniquity Shall Abound
In Virginia, a disgruntled public utility employee opened fire with a handgun on co-workers at a municipal building on Friday, killing 12 people and wounding at least four before he was fatally shot by police.
A California woman who tried to drown her newborn in a McDonald’s toilet received no jail time during sentencing this month. Sarah Jane Lockner, 27, escaped jail time and was, instead, sentenced to four years of supervised probation with a requirement to attend parenting classes.
In Democrat-run Chicago, 42 people were shot over Memorial Day weekend. If you think the gang violence is only about drug territories, think again. “Young gang members in small, disorganized cliques shoot each other over petty personal feuds that they play out on social media with the hope of gaining street notoriety and possibly fame as a rapper.” Read more of this disturbing report at this link.
In Japan, the motive is not known for why a knife-wielding man, Ryuichi Iwasaki, attacked a group of young Catholic schoolgirls waiting for a bus. 19 people were injured. Two of them, an 11-year-old girl and her father, have died. The suspect stabbed himself in the neck after his rampage and later died in the hospital. The man is described as a recluse who had trouble holding down a job.
Hatred of Anything to do With God/Christ
NBC news actually cut out the part where Jeopardy host Alex Trebek thanks viewers for prayers in his fight against stage 4 pancreatic cancer, and CBS didn’t mention it in their broadcast. Doctors say some of his tumors have shrunk by more than 50%, something they’ve never seen in this situation. Trebek credits the prayers. He said he had days in the beginning during taping of the show where he’d be on the floor writhing in pain.
The airport bans against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A are now under investigation by the US Department of Transportation for possible religious bias. These bans started 2 months ago at San Antonio airport.
Hatred of God’s Covenant People, the Jews
In France, drunk students smashed a number of headstones at the only functioning Jewish cemetery in Bordeaux. However, police said it was not an anti-Semitic incident…?!
In Austria, an exhibit of photos of Holocaust survivors lining a major street in downtown Vienna was vandalized for a third time on Monday.
In Germany, Angela Merkel’s administration declined to stop the pro-Iranian regime al-Quds Day march in Berlin on Saturday despite growing anti-Semitism in that country.
The German government’s anti-Semitism commissioner has urged Jews to avoid wearing their kippas (caps), following a rise in anti-Semitism.
Official “Palestinian” Authority TV broadcast a Ramadan mini-series inciting Muslim children to kill Jews.
Without Self Control
One of the country’s most sensitive nuclear missile launch facilities has admitted that Air Force personnel responsible for overseeing the base were caught boozing, in violation of strict regulations governing nuclear sites. This is the second major breach.
The U.S. military plans to analyze 350 billion social-media posts from around the world to help it track how popular movements evolve.
In George Orwell’s 1984, everyman Winston Smith is tortured and brainwashed into truly believing 2+2=5. Orwell’s message was that an unfettered State would eventually maintain the population in such propaganda-induced fear of its power that people would deny objective reality. Such was the power of the Party and doublethink – it weakened individual liberty. Conform or else. So it goes with the Democrats’ passage of The Equality Act. The legislation adds “gender identity” to the list of protected classes under federal civil rights law. “Gender identity” is that bizarre concept in which one must be treated as whatever gender one wishes to be known as, regardless of what reality dictates.
In Long Island, New York, authorities blame the MS-13 Salvadoran gang for another body discovered in a shallow grave. Police in Nassau County have found nearly a dozen bodies since 2016 belonging to suspected MS-13 victims.
In Texas, the Border Patrol apprehended 1,036 illegal immigrants in a breach of the border fence Wednesday, marking a massive escalation in the border crisis. “This is ultimately a new line of business for smuggling organizations,” the official said.
Some good news: We Build the Wall’s private donations have allowed the first half mile of the US border to be completed in four days.
It’s not immigration; it’s invasion supported by the Democrat left. If they wanted to be productive citizens of this country, they wouldn’t brazenly and illegally storm the border with foreign flags. President Trump will impose a 5% tariff on all goods coming into our country until Mexico stops allowing illegal migrants to come through Mexico to our border. The tariff will increase until this serious problem is remedied (up to 25% by Oct). “As President of the United States, my highest duty is the defense of the country and its citizens. A nation without borders is not a nation at all. I will not stand by and allow our sovereignty to be eroded, our laws to be trampled, or our borders to be disrespected anymore.”
Nation (Ethnic) Against Nation (Ethnic)
“Under Trump, black Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans and women in record numbers have seen historic low unemployment, wage increases and job opportunities. This left the Democrat Party with two options to attract black votes. First, they take credit for the economic boom. Second, they continue to purposely divide our nation by angering and energizing the black voting bloc. It’s a strategy predicated upon the belief that anyone who disagrees with Democrat policies is racist.”
In Pennsylvania, a man was assaulted and thrown onto train tracks. The victim says he was assaulted because he was white. The perpetrator was black.
The mainstream media was silent on this. In South Africa, Annette Kennealy, a prominent activist against attacks and murders of white farmers, was brutally murdered. She had multiple stab wounds, and had several wounds to her head and face. An iron rod was bent around her neck, and a hammer was next to her body. One suspect, an employee on her farm, Kenny Ramantswana from Maluma village, has been arrested.
Wars and Rumors of Wars
Isaiah 17 & Ezekiel 38-39 News: Jerusalem will host in June an unprecedented trilateral meeting of top security officials from Israel, Russia and the US. The meeting is expected to deal mostly with Syria, specifically Iran’s efforts to entrench itself militarily near Israel’s borders, and the planned withdrawal of US troops from the war-torn country.
In Iran, state-sponsored marches across Iran on its annual al-Quds Day (basically oppose Israel Day) showed demonstrators carrying banners with slogans such as “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine” and “Death to America.”
In Syria, satellite images show large areas of farmland in opposition-held northwest Syria have been burnt as part of what activists allege is a campaign by the government to destroy vital food crops. Civil defense workers say incendiary weapons have been fired repeatedly at fields in Idlib, Hama and Aleppo provinces in the past month. Air and artillery strikes have also killed at least 160 civilians.
Israel’s IAF destroyed a Syrian missile launcher after the missile fired at an Israeli plane conducting a routine flight over northern Israel.
Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar threatened to “pulverize” Tel Aviv in the next military confrontation.
The “Peace” Plan and Significant Elections and Related Events
In Italy, fascist symbols, rhetoric and salutes — long a public taboo — made their way out of the hooligan sections of soccer stadiums and into Italian streets in the run-up to last week’s European Parliament elections.
Divided EU: The right and left power blocs in the European Parliament lost their combined majority amid increased support for liberals, the Greens and nationalists. Pro-EU parties are still expected to be the majority but traditional blocs must seek new alliances. The liberals and Greens had a good night, while nationalists were victorious in Italy, France and the UK.
The US peace proposal is due to be revealed this month. BUT, that was based upon Israel having formed its new government. Netanyahu was unable to form a majority coalition and has called for new elections. So Israel is in a period of political paralysis and uncertainty right now. With Israel heading to elections on September 17, and as America has its own major election gearing up, former US diplomats and experts on the region say Trump’s proposal may not see the light of day anytime soon.
The European Union Commission president, Jean Claude Juncker, is retiring in October. It will be interesting to see who replaces him.
Jared Kushner and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended the secretive Bilderberg meeting yesterday in Switzerland.
Explainable or Demonic Deception?
U.S. Navy pilots and sailors can report UFO’S under new rules meant to encourage them to keep track of what they see. So now they’re coming out with their UFO stories that are being reported in the news.
The Strange Death of Europe – and what it means for Israel
While some have argued that the various crises stemming from the recent waves of mass migration are a temporary aberration, British journalist and commentator Douglas Murray believes the issue is here to stay – and indeed will only grow in importance in the coming years. “This is going to be the single biggest issue in an age where anyone can move anywhere.”
Daniel 1, 4, 8: “There shall be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation…many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased…I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?”
Technology Is Becoming Indistinguishable from Reality:
Watch this video that shows how technology now can create images of people who don’t really exist and also can make it look like people are saying things they never said.
A few days ago in South Korea, a dragon flew over the stadium during the opening to a baseball championship game. The dragon was created using 3D Holographic Technology and 5G Telephony Network. “Augmented reality has turned out to be a game changer in the world of technology today. And the world saw its manifestation (video).”
How could this technology be used during the Tribulation?
Continuing in Daniel chapter 12: “Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly, and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up [Antichrist’s image in the temple by the False Prophet) there shall be 1,290 days (last 3 1/2 years of Tribulation – then Christ returns]… But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.”
The Good News
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:1-5).
We are all sinners who have fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). But Christ Jesus, God in the flesh, who came to die for the sins of the world—for whosoever will believe in Him (John 3:16)—will make a change in a person (Philippians 1:6) if they truly turn to Him as Savior. Call on Him in repentance – a change of mind that will result in a change of action – and accept His free pardon now if you haven’t. The hour is truly late.
While editing articles for Rapture Ready this week, I was reminded of an old song, “He (Can Turn the Tide). My favorite version of it is by the Righteous Brothers.
He can turn the tide and calm the angry sea
He alone decides who writes a symphony
He lights every star that makes the darkness bright
He keeps watch all through each long and lonely night
He still finds the time to hear a child’s first prayer
Saint or sinner calls, they’ll always find Him there
Though it makes Him sad to see the way we live
He’ll always say I forgive
