Ramping Up For Revelation
“Notices are being posted in the canned vegetable sections of Walmart and Kroger stores nationwide stating that there is a shortage of these items. As crop failures around the globe continue to intensify, will shortages such as this start to become increasingly common? Sadly, the economic law of supply and demand is going to continue to push prices higher. And the tighter that food supplies become, the higher prices will go.”

The flooding and resulting landslides have killed over 230 people and injured thousands, with dozens still missing. MANY thousands of homes have been destroyed as well as many food crops. Flood-related disasters often cause a host of health issues, including water- and vector-borne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, malaria and dengue. Evacuated people in crowded conditions can lead to rapid transmission of communicable diseases. In Bangladesh, they’re calling it the worst flooding in years. Rivers are at the highest level they’ve been in the 40 years of recordkeeping.
In Israel, a heat wave that struck Wednesday sent temperatures soaring to near-record breaking heights. The highest temperature was recorded on the southern shores of the Dead Sea, near the site of Biblical Sodom, where the mercury hit 49.9° Celsius (122° Fahrenheit), a record for the spot (in modern times, that is).

Days of Lot Returned
“The sick, twisted agenda of the deranged Left has come full circle today as Whole Foods is now sponsoring a Drag Queen Story Hour event in Atlanta, Georgia, to indoctrinate children into pedophilia, transgenderism and perversion. A retailer that once promoted organics and clean food is now saturated in absolute filth, exploiting America’s children to be “groomed” for the pedophiles and perverts that are repeatedly linked to drag queen events in multiple cities across America. Atlanta’s Democrat mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms, fully supports this agenda.”
The American Library Association’s recent national conference provided librarians from across the country with strategies for advancing gender identity ideology in schools and finding ways to bring “Drag Queen Story Times” into public libraries despite the objections of local communities.
A former paramedic from Florida, James Lockhart, was sentenced to 70 years in prison for recording a series of heinous videos of himself raping his 1-year-old daughter and posting them to the dark web.

Hatred and Persecution of Christians
In the UK in West Sussex, Helpers from Noah’s Ark playgroup has met at Burgess Hill Library for the past 8 years to sing songs based on Bible stories. The group has now been asked to take their session’s elsewhere. Library officials made the decision to exclude the volunteers from ‘baby rhyme time’ at the venue after families communicated they were unhappy with the Christian references in their songs. Yet drag queen Storytime for children is being promoted at public libraries across the nation.
David Curry, CEO of Open Doors USA, wants American Christians to know what persecution is like in other areas of the globe; it’s shocking. “It’s a different world,” Curry said. “What it can do for us, though, is to inform us and we can learn a lot from these people in these countries in our own walk. As such, I think they treasure scripture more.”
In Syria, an autopsy revealed that 60-yr-old Christian, Suzan Der Kirkour, was tortured and repeatedly raped over an estimated period of 9 hours, then stoned to death. Suzan worked as a gardener and Arabic teacher. After her retirement, she was a volunteer at the Kneye Village Church “where she helped youth achieve their baccalaureate.”Al-Yaqoubiyeh is a Christian village, but most of the women have left because of violent aggression from the terrorists. Some estimate that only 18 women, including Suzan, were living in the village.”
Chinese Christians are fleeing China amid the crackdown on churches, saying China is no longer safe for them. Children in China’s primary schools are being taught that belief in God is abnormal and that parents who are religious should not be trusted.

He offered a prayer to deal with the Jews in the building: “Oh *God [Allah], reduce their numbers, exterminate them, and don’t leave a single one alive,” he said. He is also praised by other prominent Islamists in the US. *Media reports him using the word “God,” but Allah is NOT God.
In France, judges in charge of the preliminary investigation into the murder of 65-year-old widow and former teacher Sarah Halimi by her Muslim neighbor Kobili Traore, ruled that the 27-year old from Mali could not be held criminally responsible because he’d smoked marijuana hours before he violently beat her and tossed her from a 3rd -floor window. As Traore beat Halimi, he was heard screaming, “Allahu Akhbar” (Allah is greater) and “Shaitan” (Arabic for “Satan”). Several weeks beforehand, Traore had called Halimi’s daughter a “dirty Jewess” as they crossed paths in their building elevator in Paris.
Islamization of the Nations

A young cow tried to run away only to be caught by staffers of the meat market and have its throat slit in public in a Home Depot parking lot. A young child witnessed the spectacle; no telling what kind of nightmares that will cause, but none of the staffers were remorseful. Soon after, Saba was shuttered for various violations after local, state and federal agencies investigated.

Apostasy and Doctrines of Demons
In Arizona, the Satanic Temple is taking the city of Scottsdale to court to try to force the city council to allow them to lead the invocation/prayer. Meanwhile, another metro Phoenix city is adding prayer to the start of its meetings, knowing full well what that may mean. “It’s only a matter of time before the Satanists come,” Councilman Chris Judd said. For the last several years, The Satanic Temple has been trying to get city councils across the country to lead their invocations with some success.
As we’ve heard, the Satanic Temple has been granted tax-exempt status by the IRS. This essentially means the Satanic Temple has the same legal protections of other religions, including “access to public spaces; affirming its standing in court when battling religious discrimination; and enabling it to apply for faith-based government grants. Though the Satanic Temple is reported as the first satanic religion in the US to be officially granted such a status, IRS records show that a New York City chapter of the Church of Satan was granted tax-exempt status in 1980.
A Catholic church will replace prosperity preacher Robert Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral in California at a mind-boggling cost of 134 million (church building $57M and renovations $77M). Imagine how many people that would have fed since Francis claims to care so much for the poor. A statue of Catholic Archbishop Fulton Sheen, Schuller’s idol, will remain. Relics of Catholic saints were placed in the reliquary located under the altar. Relics are bones, body parts, blood and clothing claimed to belong to these people and are considered sacred and venerated by the Catholic church. One wonders what they’ll do with the statue of Schuller himself. Yes, he had a graven image of himself at the Crystal Cathedral.
80% of priests working at the Vatican are gay says Frederic Martel in his book In the Closet of the Vatican which he spent four years researching. It is a “startling account of corruption and hypocrisy at the heart of the Vatican,” according to its British publisher Bloomsbury.
In Scotland: Hearings Regarding Decades of Child Sex Abuse at Several Catholic Schools by monks and priests. A child abuse inquiry witness told of rape by priests during “satanic” drink-fueled sex parties, and a catalogue of sexual, physical and emotional violence at St Ninian’s (1971-1975).

Hearings have now begun on the Order of Benedictines and their provision at Fort Augustus Abbey School and Carlekemp School. Also Marist Brothers and their provision at St Joseph’s College and St Columba’s College. Finally, (so-called) “Christian” Brothers and their provision at St Ninian’s. Later, the inquiry will look into the provision of care by De La Salle Brothers, who ran a number of institutions in Scotland.

In North Carolina, Asian longhorned ticks killed five cows by sucking their blood dry. The latest was a bull near the border with Virginia. These ticks were first found in the US in 2017 on a sheep. Last month, the first man was bitten by one in New York. The female ticks of this species can lay eggs (2,000 in a matter of weeks) and reproduce without mating. An animal may have thousands of ticks on it at one time. So far, longhorned ticks have been found in Arkansas, Connecticut, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
US Military chiefs have been ordered to reveal whether they used diseased TICKS in sick biological warfare experiments. A bill passed in the House requires the Pentagon to investigate whether researchers infected the insects in the 1970s – and if any were let loose. It comes after a bombshell new book claims the Defense Department was behind the spread of Lyme Disease between 1950 and 1975.
In the Philippines, health authorities have declared a “national dengue alert” after a spike in cases of the viral disease which has left more than 450 people dead since January. 106,630 cases of dengue infection have been recorded in the first six months of the year, 85% higher than the same period last year.
Mutant strain of Polio: In Pakistan and Afghanistan, cases of polio are surging despite massive vaccination campaigns held every few months. In Africa, the vaccine itself is spawning virulent mutant strains of polio that are hard to contain. Mutated strains have occurred in various places for quite a while (in places where sanitation is a problem), though not in epidemic proportions. From NPR: “Lab tests show they’re caused by remnants of the oral polio vaccine that have gotten loose in the environment, mutated and regained their ability to paralyze unvaccinated children.” From Wikipedia: “2017 was the first year where more cases of cVDPV (vaccine-inspired polio) were recorded than the wild (natural) poliovirus, a trend that is expected to continue.”
In Europe, syphilis cases have soared over the last decade and become, for the first time since the early 2000s, more common in some countries than new cases of HIV. Reported cases of syphilis are up by 70% since 2010 with the rise driven by more unprotected sex and riskier sexual behavior among gay men who have a reduced fear of acquiring HIV.
The deadly Ebola outbreak in Congo is now an international health emergency, the World Health Organization announced on Wednesday after the virus spread this week to Goma, a city of two million people. A pastor came to Goma on a bus, after which he was diagnosed with Ebola.
America’s largest union, the National Education Association (NEA) is destroying our country, beginning with our schools—our children. At the latest NEA national convention, this year in Houston, the 6,000-plus delegates passed policies to spend hard-earned teacher and school staff dues to advocate lawlessness, open borders, extremely divisive special interest groups, abortion, youth sexual “rights,” sodomy, and gender distortion.
Math is Racist?! What?! It is – according to the Leftists in the education system. The term “Math Equity” refers to the growing insistence among educators that teaching math in the classroom comes with some inherently biased methodology that must be addressed. Proponents of “math equity” also stress the importance of social justice issues such as race, diversity and gender in math education — a trend that’s catching on.
In Washington State, the board of directors at the Mullis Community Senior Center decided to revise its lunchtime program by removing the traditional prayer and the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. The center’s executive committee blamed the prayer and the pledge for a decline in attendance. Thus began a battle over prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance at the center. Military veterans who spoke up were thrown off the property, and elderly patriots were told to recite the pledge inside a closet.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced a House resolution calling President Trump’s tweets last weekend “racist” and “xenophobic,” but Republican U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham rightfully said the focus of outrage should be the four “communist” congresswomen Trump was condemning. “Well, we all know that [New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and this crowd are a bunch of communists; they hate Israel; they hate our own country.” There are even Democrat ridiculous calls for impeachment over Trump’s tweets. But as for the traitors in the House…crickets.
President Trump said, “So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion. Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, ‘RACIST.’ Their disgusting language and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged.”
Does the following sound familiar? It should. It perfectly describes the Democrat Party’s agenda today. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” – George Orwell 1984
Leftist Depopulation Agenda

Planned Parenthood’s interim president claims that Christians can support abortions.
Netflix saw a historic subscriber drop, losing 126,000 customers after threatening to boycott pro-life Georgia. Surely, they knew, just like other companies, etc., on the Left, that this would happen. But their godless agendas are all that matter to them.
University of Chicago Ph.D. student Steven Jacobs recently defended a dissertation in which he asked thousands of biologists when life begins. A large majority of the biologists he surveyed, even those who are committed to the pro-choice position, said human life begins at conception. His report has angered the left. Jacobs told The College Fix that the research means he probably will not be able to get a job in academia. He said, “I have gotten the sense that this has been talked about a lot. I’ve been regularly told that I can’t get a job in academia. I’ve been told don’t try. I’ve been told that maybe a Christian school would hire me.”
In California in the Los Angeles area, 22 MS-13 gang members were charged in murders of seven people hacked with machetes.
A group of 47 migrants violently rushed an international port of entry near McAllen, Texas, and assaulted officers in an attempt to illegally enter the country.
Wars and Rumors of Wars
A US warship on Thursday destroyed an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz after it threatened the ship and the Iranian controllers refused to back off.
Iran seized two British tankers with dozens of crew members on Friday. One was released after briefly being detained but the other has not been released. UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has warned Iran of “serious consequences” if its military does not return the vessel and its crew. This makes three in one week since a United Arab Emirates tanker that disappeared last weekend is suspected of being held by Iran. Iran, of course, claims the tankers were either where they shouldn’t be or doing what they weren’t supposed to do.
Kings of the East
China’s military carried out air and naval drills on its southeast coast following the latest arms sales from the US to self-ruled Taiwan, which China claims as a renegade province.
In Hong Kong in southeastern China, tens of thousands continue to take to the streets to protest with no signs of stopping. The protests initially began over a proposed extradition bill that would allow so-called “political dissidents” to be extradited to mainland China for trial. But now the protests are over Hong Kong’s freedoms being eroded. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong has up till now maintained governing and economic systems that are separate from those of mainland China. But the people of Hong Kong see this changing.
Sounds like the way is being paved for Revelation 13’s ten-nation confederacy that will be led by the Antichrist. The Bastille Day celebration (see video) in Paris this year was not just about showcasing France, but also military cooperation among European countries. The flags of TEN COUNTRIES of the European Intervention Initiative, a joint military pact created last year, led last Sunday’s military parade. In a message to the French people before the parade, President Emmanuel Macron highlighted the importance of France’s commitment to boost European security.
Jesus said, “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive” (John 5:43).
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy… and the dragon [Satan] gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority… power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear” (See Revelation 13:1-9).
“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:7-12).
