When You See These Things Begin…
We’re seeing a foretaste of what it will be like for unbelievers left behind to face the tribulation: nation against nation; kingdom against kingdom; wars and rumors of wars; nations in anguish and perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring. Lawlessness, wickedness, and traitors abound; apostasy in the churches is running wild; and hatred of Jews and Christians is rampant.
US: A brutal winter storm system that’s been pounding the Pacific Northwest this week is heading east. Winds whipped up the snow north of Seattle, reducing visibility in some spots to almost nothing.
Avalanche Hits California Ski Resort Near Lake Tahoe; 1 Killed, 1 Seriously Injured. At least a foot of snow fell in the 24 hours preceding the avalanche, with higher elevations picking up as much as 2 feet.
Surge of Arctic air to send temperatures plummeting in the Midwest, Northeast. In the wake of a massive storm that brought blizzard conditions to the Plains, damaging freezing rain to the Midwest, and heavy snow to the Great Lakes, wintry conditions will return with a vengeance in the coming days. A northerly wind on the back side of the storm system ushered in a cold, Canadian air mass on Saturday. Areas that picked up accumulating snowfall from the departed storm could have near white-out conditions due to the strong winds, even as precipitation comes to an end.
Pressure Increases on Imperiled Mississippi Dam as Lake Rises Overnight. Heavy rains raised water levels in the Oktibbeha County Lake. Residents near the dam were asked to evacuate as the dam was in “imminent” danger of breaching and flooding 17,500 acres of land. Clay County could also be impacted.
Canada: Crippling Newfoundland Blizzard From Bomb Cyclone Smashes All-Time Daily Snow Record. A state of emergency was declared in St. John’s and other cities, banning vehicles on city streets. St. John’s smashed its all-time daily snowfall record which had stood for over 20 years. Photos showed massive snow drifts blocking doors of homes. This storm was a bomb cyclone, which intensified rapidly once it moved off the coast of New England.
A remarkable satellite presentation of explosive cyclogenesis over the Northwest Atlantic. It will push a severe windstorm and major waves towards Greenland and Iceland over the weekend. Four cyclones showed up on the same satellite image on Friday: along the Northwest US coast, across the Midwest, over the Northwest Atlantic and over the central North Atlantic.
Major floods hit Iran after a year’s worth of rain in 3 days; at least 3 dead and over 20,000 homeless. Thousands of establishments were damaged and hundreds of villages were cut off.
Brutal cold snap brings death toll to at least 170 in Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. Heavy snow, rain, and frigid temperatures continue to trigger avalanches.
In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), non-stop heavy rain led to widespread flooding and destruction and broke the highest rainfall record since 1996. One fatality was reported.
Oman hit by 4 months’ worth of rain in one day, severe flash floods and freezing temperatures. Heavy rain triggered flash flooding with temperatures plummeting below freezing; snow in some areas.
Extreme weather sparks snow in EGYPT and blizzards in Greece -‘Crazy winter’ engulfs globe. The weird weather conditions can be attributed to a difference in movement of weather currents. There is usually a low-pressure area in the Arctic which regulates climate in the Northern Hemisphere; however, a strong polar vortex has reversed the circulation of the currents.
Storm Brendan battered Ireland and the United Kingdom on Monday. Brendan underwent rapid intensification (bomb cyclone) before it made landfall on Monday morning, and its remnants still continue.
Tropical Cyclone Claudia affected northwestern Australia with downpours and gusty winds. Heavy rains and thunderstorms lashed parts of Australia’s east coast, dousing some fires but bringing a new threat of flooding to some areas.
‘Severe’ Category 3 Tropical Cyclone Tino Moves Directly Towards Tonga. Two people are reported missing in Fiji and dozens more forced to seek shelter in evacuation centers as the cyclone passed over.
2020: The Sun Will Reach its Lowest Solar Activity in Over 200 Years according to NASA, who says we should prepare for odd or different weather patterns. On Dec. 20, Iceland had one of its largest snow storms with extreme winds. Iceland’s, Europe’s and North America’s weather have historically been tied to sunspot activity of the Sun. [Because, as the global warming whiners don’t want to admit, solar activity affects the weather; and, of course, God controls solar activity, and He can do whatever regardless.]
Magnetic Explosion on Earth’s Doorstep: On Dec. 20, 2015, a magnetic explosion occurred over 3 times closer to Earth than anyone has seen before. The explosion and solar storm delivered over 10 times the energy of the largest US nuclear bomb and about 20 times the energy of a 7.0 earthquake, sparking intense auroras. It’s taken researchers 4 years to wrap their minds around what happened, and results were published this week. This poses a previously overlooked threat to Earth-orbiting satellites.
In the Philippines, the Taal volcano erupted January 12, first time since 1977. Authorities urged evacuations after ash spewed 9 miles high (14 kilometers) into the air, prompting warnings that “a hazardous eruption may happen within hours or days.” Authorities also warned of a possible “volcanic tsunami” that can be trigged by falling debris after an eruption, pushing water and generating waves. The fallout has blanketed areas with ash dozens of miles away. The country’s president declared, “It is now a no man’s land.” Multiple new fissures were since observed and magma is building up. Authorities are having a hard time convincing some residents to leave or keep them from returning to rescue belongings and animals – too late for many. A hazardous eruption would affect nearly a million people.
In Japan, the Mt. Shintake volcano erupted last Saturday with no immediate reports of injuries.
New eruption at Fernandina volcano January 12; lava flows descending to the coast – Galapagos, Ecuador. There’s no human population on the island, but its ecosystems host many unique species.
Puerto Rico: Over 1,280 earthquakes have hit its southern region since Dec. 28, Over two dozen 4.5 or greater. A 5.2 occurred Wednesday morning as quakes continue to hit the island on a daily basis.
Japan: Series of earthquakes offshore this week, including a 5.1 at the coast and 5.0 inside the country.
Indonesia: A strong inland 6.0 earthquake late Saturday night struck the country’s easternmost Papua province. There were no immediate reports of major damage or casualties.
There were a number of quakes in diverse places in the ocean that registered between 5.0 and 5.9.
EPIDEMICS, ILLNESS, PLAGUES, FAMINE
Fecal bacteria In California’s waterways increases with vagrant crisis. San Francisco officials were quick to dispute Trump’s claims. But some of California’s most prized rivers, beaches and streams are indeed contaminated with fecal bacteria that exceed state limits. Now the filth of Democrat social welfare policies is fouling the Sacramento and American rivers, where vagrants have set up tent cities. E. coli levels at beaches are supposed to be 88 or below; anything over 1,000 is supposed to lead to beach closure. But at Discovery Park, numbers went as high as 2419.6 in December. Visitors describe mountains of trash, waste, and needles, hookers, and crazy people screaming obscenities and throwing punches at anyone who came too close.
Meth-related fatalities have increased significantly in Florida. The most recent available records reflect 1,056 meth-related deaths during 2018 – a 23% increase compared to 2017.
Carelessness That Caused Injuries at Six Schools (five elementary schools and one high school). A plane dumped jet fuel over Los Angeles. 60 people on the ground were treated. Policies are supposed to keep this from happening. The plane shouldn’t have taken off overloaded. Also, pilots are supposed to dump fuel at high altitudes, if needed, so it evaporates before hitting the ground.
New Chinese virus ‘will have infected hundreds’. The number of people already infected by the mystery virus emerging in China is far greater than official figures suggest, scientists say. There’ve been 62 (update) confirmed cases, but UK experts estimate it’s closer to 1,700.
Travelers entering the U.S. from Wuhan, China, will be screened for this spreading virus that has left 2 dead [and 3 in critical condition]. They’ll be screened at the 3 largest ports of entry in the U.S.: San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City’s JFK airport. The virus has been reported in Thailand and Japan in people who’ve been to Wuhan. “This is a serious situation,” said Dr. Meissonier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. “We know it is crucial to be proactive and prepared.” Between 60,000 and 65,000 people a year travel from Wuhan to the US.
Locust outbreak, most serious in 25 years, hits East Africa. An “extremely dangerous increase” in locust swarm activity. One swarm measured 60 kilometers (37 miles) long by 40 kilometers (25 miles) wide. The outbreak of desert locusts, the most dangerous locust species, also has affected parts of Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Djibouti and Eritrea; South Sudan and Uganda could be next. The outbreak is making the region’s bad food security situation worse.
LAST DAYS OF LOT RETURNED
Newman Report: College Professor Wants To Make Sex with Children Legal. Classics Professor Thomas Hubbard at University of Texas at Austin calls for lowering age-of-consent laws that protect children from sexual predators. There’s a concerted effort in education and entertainment to normalize pedophilia — one of the final moral taboos still standing in America. As The Newman Report exposed last year, schools in California were caught normalizing child rape as a “sexual orientation” under the guise of teaching “LGBT” history. Hubbard pointed to Ancient Greek pederasty — relationships between men and pubescent boys — as a beneficial example for modern America, saying boys without fathers would especially benefit from sex with grown men. North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) promotes similar arguments.
Hubbard is hardly the first tax-funded “researcher” at a tax-funded university to promote rape of children. As The Newman Report highlighted in 2019, Alfred Kinsey at Indiana University — the father of “sex education” and the sexual revolution — was responsible for rape and sexual torture of thousands of children and babies, all done under the guise of “sex research.” Today, the tax-funded Kinsey Institute continues to promote this wickedness. American universities, engorged on an endless diet of taxpayer dollars, have become centers of perversion, idiocy, and insanity. Legislators should never fund this lunacy. It’s time for parents and young Americans to be much more diligent in choosing a college, if any
110-Year-Old Boy Scout Organization Has Been a Magnet for Tens of Thousands of Pedophiles, Lawsuit Claims. The lawsuit contends that the BSA has known since its early years that it attracted pedophiles as leaders, yet avoided acknowledgement for decades as it kept secret files of men known or suspected of committing sex abuse. The lawsuit notes that BSA submits annual reports to Congress. However, never in 103 years has BSA disclosed that its programs were/are magnets to tens of thousands of pedophiles. BSA’s reports miscast the organization as a bastion of moral authority. Plaintiffs are currently suing in Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.
45-Year-Old Sex Offender Identifies As 8-Year-Old Girl, Declares Child Pornography “Free Speech.” This generation’s obsession with “gender identities” and compelling everyone else to accommodate them has been co-opted by perverts/pedophiles. We’ve seen people identifying as dogs, with full-body suits, leashes, etc., so we shouldn’t be surprised to find a sex offender identifying as an 8-year-old girl to attempt to justify use of child porn. Joseph Gobrick was arrested after officers discovered images of rapes of babies/children up to age 5 on his electronic devices. He’s a convicted sex offender from 2001; and in 2018 was arrested when a 17-year-old girl listed as endangered/missing was found at his home. He’s sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison, but why ever let him out?
Transgender Dolls. We’ve heard about Mattel’s “gender-inclusive” dolls. But there are also dolls in dresses with long hair and penises; a line of trans tweens/teens dolls in dresses with long hair and penises; trans nesting dolls that start out as a baby girl and progress through “gender confusion,” and end up as a boy; and a Jazz doll based on the boy on the TV series who “transitioned” into a girl.
Illinois Will Update Birth Certificates to Allow Biological Females to Be Named as the Father, and Vice Versa. This comes after pressure from the pro-LGBT organization Lambda Legal on behalf of a “trans” couple. Myles Brady-Davis is a female who identifies as male, goes by pronouns they/them, and desires to be named the father on the birth certificate. Precious Brady-Davis is a male who identifies as female and is called the baby’s mother. The Chicago-Sun Times described them in glowing terms: “When Myles Brady Davis found out he was pregnant, he rejoiced with his wife, Precious. They held hands, they teared up. They sank to the living room floor and melted into each other, just savoring the moment.”
Facebook says ‘denying existence’ of trans identities on platform is hate speech. Mirroring Twitter’s update forbidding “misgendering” on the platform, Facebook updated its terms to say “denying the existence” of self-determined gender identities will be considered “hate speech.” So, denying existence of a potentially unlimited number of gender identities can result in a permanent account ban.
Michigan attorney general using so-called ‘hate crime unit’ to harass pro-marriage group. Dana Nessel is acting in concert with Michigan Dept of Civil Rights and Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC, a left-wing anti-Christian organization, published its annual report, listing 31 so-called “hate” groups in Michigan. Listed in that group as “ANTI-LGBT” was Church Militant, a media organization that advocates marriage as instituted by God is for one man and one woman.
Gay Man Who Protested Drag Queen Story Hour Commits Suicide After Social Media Mob Attack, Left Blames ‘Internalized Homophobia.’ After his group appeared at Drag Queen Story Hour to protest, he was harassed and threatened by a storm of angry people on social media. He was said to be SSA, same-sex attracted but didn’t act on it, and was also against same-sex marriage. There were 2 Drag Queen entertainers at the children’s event: One goes by Queenie, and one goes by Diamond “Good-Rim,” a disgusting sexual reference I cannot repeat. Diamond Good-Rim is the winner of an Australian X Award for Adult Entertainment. We can just imagine what that entails. At least one Australian politician called the protestors against the event “ratbags.” Instead of blaming the harassment from leftists for Gavin’s suicide, they blamed “internalized homophobia.”
Selection bias and abortion propaganda from CNN. A factually misleading, agenda-driven piece from CNN asserts that almost no women feel regret five years after having an abortion.
Art Exhibit in New York to Benefit Planned Parenthood’s political agenda titled ‘Abortion is Normal.’ The Abortion Is Normal website, a Bloomberg highlight video, and a Daily Beast report display and describe several examples of the event’s “art,” much of which is disgusting. Downtown for Democracy organization states on its website it has “transformed our community’s cultural influence into political power.” This scene especially brought to mind the following scriptures of the pattern of the last stage in the fall of nations:
“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… children [those not fit for leadership] 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” (Isaiah 3:9, 12-13).
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men [mankind] shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers… unholy, Without natural affection… For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:1-3, 6-7).
LAST DAYS TRAITORS: A FUNGUS AMONG US
The liberal WikiHow site has an article teaching children how to scheme against parents and stage fake cover stories to get vaccines that even the U.S. govt. admits cause thousands of injuries, hospitalizations and even deaths every year (VAERS.HHS.gov and HRSA.gov). The article warns children that their parents might “fall into rabbit holes of conspiracy theories” about vaccines, falsely implying that all evidence of vaccine dangers/injuries is a “conspiracy.” The article claims anti-vaccine parents might “abuse you if they learned you disobeyed them.”
WHO Chief Scientist caught on video overtly contradicting public propaganda videos that falsely claim vaccines work “without risks.” Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization, has been caught lying about vaccine safety. She claims “Vaccines are very safe” and can “prevent disease without risks.” But in a leaked WHO vaccine summit video, she said, “we really don’t have very good safety monitoring systems” and “learned about adverse events only after the drug’s been licensed and introduced into the population. So I think that risk is always there…”
Two Arizona School Districts Promoting Racial Divisions and so-called “Social Justice.” “Essentially, students and teachers are being taught anti-white, anti-Christian hate. Students are taught to lecture adults about their biases. They’re taught to be social justice activists.” The programs also teach “intersectionality” – “merely a replacement for Marxism, and very similar to it.”
The left blamed Trump for everything connected to Hurricane Maria in 2017, but guess what?! A video that has now been removed showed a warehouse in Puerto Rico filled with thousands of cases of water and other much-needed supplies from 2017 that never made it to the public. With this new discovery, Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vazquez dismissed Carlos Acevedo, director of Puerto Rico’s emergency management agency. “There are thousands of people who have made sacrifices to bring help to the south, and it is unforgivable that resources have been kept in a warehouse,” she said.
Bannon Accuses Pelosi, Schiff And Mainstream Media Of Colluding On so-called 11th Hour Impeachment Bombshells. “This is all total hearsay from a guy trying to talk his way into a lesser sentence because he’s already indicted. It’s so obvious what he’s trying to do.” Adding to the collusion/ ‘slow walk’ theory is completion of a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) requested by Democrat senator Chris Van Hollen, which claims President Trump’s pause of US aid to Ukraine violated the law. Of note, virtually every previous administration has received a similar nastygram from the GAO – just not the day after directly related impeachment articles were delivered to the Senate.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drew criticism for handing out commemorative pens — with her name on them — after signing a resolution to transmit two articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate for trial. She couldn’t contain her “glee” as she carried them. “Pelosi’s souvenir pens served up on silver platters to sign the sham articles of impeachment,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham tweeted in response.
Bernie Campaigner Predicts Violence at DNC: Police Will Get ‘F***ing Beaten’. Project Veritas released an undercover video Tuesday showing a field organizer for Bernie Sanders warning that Milwaukee, host of this year’s Dem National Convention, will “burn” and police will be “beaten” if Sanders loses the nomination. “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f***g Milwaukee will burn,” says Sanders organizer Kyle Jurek. “It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when the police push back on that, other cities will f***g [explode].” In the discussion, it’s said that Trump supporters should be put in gulags to de-Nazify them.
The second undercover video released this week shows Sanders field operative exposed as a radical eco-fascist, demanding mass killings of conservatives to save “the entire human race” and “planet Earth.” These communist-leaning Leftists have ties to Antifa and are very often active members of the DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) a front group for hard-core communism.
Judicial Watch is not intimidated by Adam Schiff. It’s suing him in federal court for documents on his illicit subpoenas for phone records of Trump’s lawyer and other innocent Americans. But the Senate seems to be afraid to ask him questions over his abuse of President Trump.
People Are Dying in Racial Violence So Democrats Can Win Elections. The Dem Party is promoting racial violence. New York is a prime example; Jews are targeted and Dem leaders defend perpetrators’ actions. Every 2020 Democrat has appeared at the National Action Network despite its ugly history. Sharpton had been the central figure in the Crown Heights Pogrom; he has a history of anti-Semitic slurs, and the NAN has blood on its hands. National Action Network has the unique distinction of being the destination of choice for every major Democrat.
Democrats are siding with a genocidal terror state. America is in a national security crisis situation with Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. And Democrats are goading Iranians into attacking American troops so they can gain a “Trump has blown up the world” talking point. In effect, the Democrats are actively colluding with terror-state Iran. House Dems refused to formally support anti-government protesters in Iran or condemn the Islamic regime’s downing of the Ukrainian jetliner. Dem leaders and the media are blaming Trump for Iran downing the plane. This is beyond despicable!
Trump Versus Dem Mythmakers. Excerpt from Carolyn Glick: “To protect and preserve their 40-year old delusion-based policy, Trump’s domestic opponents are effectively supporting the Iranian regime against the US. And as they see it, they have no choice. They are in a race against time. The more successful Trump’s reality-based policies towards Iran on the one hand and Israel on the other are, the harder it will be for the foreign policy establishment to restore their delusion-based policies when he leaves power. Given the stakes, we can assume their attempts to clip Trump’s wings and debase him will increase in intensity, churlishness and irrationality as time goes by and as his successes mount.”
The duplicity of U.S. progressive students. Students in Iran are more loyal to America than many students on U.S. college campuses. Videos show Iranian students walking past American and Israeli flags placed on the ground by authorities precisely for them to tread on. The protesters expressed fury at the few who stepped on the flags. They’ve maintained free and independent thinking despite existing under a brainwashing regime. Not so here with leftist indoctrination that has brainwashed many students. Hatred of the US and Israel has become part of the identity for so-called “progressives.” They claim to support human rights yet are quick to slam Israel, and now have turned their backs on the brave protesters in Iran who are risking their lives to demonstrate against Iran’s black-hearted regime.
Videos: Protestors in Iran. ‘We are ashamed of our stupid Supreme Leader!’ ‘No honor! No honor! Soleimani is a murderer and his Supreme Leader is stupid!’
Dem agenda: Virginia bill would allow birth control, vaccines for kids without parental consent. The bill is sponsored by Sen. Barbara Favola, Planned Parenthood-endorsed leftist whose website touts her work as a “lifelong pro-choice advocate” and “LGBTQ Rights” activism. For the first time in 26 years, Nov. elections gave Dems control of both chambers of the Va. legislature and governorship. They’ve promised to implement a progressive agenda of a variety of liberal issues, including abortion on demand. In Va., minors need parent permission to be given Tylenol in school. Yet, if this bill is approved, and a child has serious side effects from a vaccine or birth control, parents’ lack of knowledge of the shot/drug having been given could prevent them and ER doctors from effectively treating the child.
Former CIA Spook Warns Dems, Deep State “Getting Desperate” To Stop Trump. Former CIA Officer and counter-terrorism expert Kevin Shipp says “they want to get rid of Trump because for the first time in their careers, they can be prosecuted for what they have done… That’s why John Brennan and others are coming out as mocking birds on CNN and MSNBC and constantly attacking the President.” Shipp said, “Evidence is already there to pass an indictment on Hillary Clinton and some of the others. So, there is not even an investigation in that regard… Barr’s investigation is now a criminal investigation. They are trying to get a hold of Brennan’s (former CIA Director) emails/correspondence, through subpoenas… and it looks like they are in the middle of that now.”
SAY WHAT? Michael Bloomberg Calls California a ‘Model’ for the Rest of the Country. He says California’s efforts on “climate change,” gun control, and criminal justice reform were second to none, and that the rest of the nation should follow their lead. He says California would serve as a model for running the country should he become president.
Also, Michael Bloomberg says, “I’m going to spend all of my money to get rid of Trump.” Bloomberg, is one of the top-ten richest people in the US with an estimated $56 billion net worth. Hey, Mikey, why not spread that wealth around instead; after all, that’s what your Party claims to want to do. Although, those of us with discernment realize this won’t really happen if the leftist Dems get control of everything. They’ll hold onto their riches while enslaving everyone else to government control. That’s how it always ends with Marxist-Socialist-Communist regimes.
US hospitals filed suit last month over Trump’s demand for transparency in prices they charge patients for healthcare services. Also, In July, a federal judge sided with drugmakers by striking down this administration’s rule that would have forced pharmaceutical companies to include wholesale prices of their drugs in TV ads. “Hospitals should be ashamed that they aren’t willing to provide American patients the cost of a service before they purchase it,” said Caitlin Oakley, spokeswoman for the Dept of Health and Human Services, adding that the administration will continue to fight for price transparency.
U.S. warned Britain not to use Huawei (from China) in 5G network, presenting new evidence about security risks and branding it “madness.” Did they mention health and safety risks of 5G technology?
LIBERAL LEFTISTS WANT AN ORWELLIAN TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT
Environmentalists Want to Take Your Food, Your Home, And Your Children. If you’re keeping track, you can’t have kids, a house, a glass of wine, a burger, or anything. The real question is what in your life will environmentalists allow you to keep? The answer is nothing. The environmentalists claim that if they’re not allowed to have their way, the planet will be destroyed. And if they are allowed to have their way, they will take everything from us that makes life worth living.
YouTube blocks links to texts of Virginia anti-gun Bills. Liberal left lawmakers seek their own safety at the expense of the citizenry, and believe law-abiding citizens are the unsafe elements of society. The Second Amendment exists to secure our own rights and our own safety against the very tyrants who believe we are the unsafe ones.
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. said civil disobedience may be in order if Virginia’s Democrat-controlled legislature passes a series of gun-restricting measures. “You don’t mess with people’s guns in this part of the state, he said. They (Democrats) don’t know what they’ve gotten into and they’re going to find out the hard way, I’m afraid.”
Northam Declares State of Emergency in Virginia, Claiming “Armed Militia Groups Plan To Storm The Capitol” during Jan. 20 “Lobby Day.” Guns have been a major focus of Lobby Day for years, with groups on either side holding rallies. Citing violence in Charlottesville in 2017 at a completely different rally, Northam claims there are credible threats that “armed militia groups plan to storm the Capitol” during Monday’s rally. He says a substantial number are expected to come from outside the Commonwealth, may be armed, and have violence, rioting, and insurrection in mind. The leftist Dems are deliberately inciting this whole thing to further their agenda. We know we can’t put anything past the Demo Party these days. Also, read this article: “Blame Game Set for Va. Gov. Northam’s Gun-Free Kill Zone.” It’s a Dem setup to actually increase the likelihood of violence. The same tactic was employed in Charlottesville.
GPS jamming expected in Southeast during military exercise. 64% of 1,239 pilots who responded to an inquiry noted concern about the impact of interference on their use of GPS and ADS-B [Automatic dependent surveillance—broadcast] during these exercises. Take a look at this video. “Feds seizing night vision tubes.” Besides the danger to commercial planes in the air, some wonder if the timing of these exercises is related to the “Lobby Day” event in Richmond, VA. Maybe so; maybe not.
VA State Senator Goes Public 72 Hours Before Rally: ‘We Are Being Set Up.’ Senator Amanda Chase of District 11 said, “The Governor, using the media has already set the stage for this to happen,” Chase wrote. “He has already laid the groundwork to make the entire movement look like insurrection.” It’s not just militia members and those wearing camouflage who have reason to worry.
According to Chase, even some military veterans have been flagged as potential threats. Despite Northam’s emergency gun ban, it’s unclear how many of the tens of thousands of expected rally attendees will obey his decree. The Virginia Citizens Defense League and Gun Owners of America, two groups behind the massive rally, appealed all the way to the Virginia Supreme Court, where Northam’s gun ban was upheld on Friday. Hopefully, violence can be avoided. But with many rallygoers almost certainly unwilling to bend on their right to bear arms and Northam seemingly intent on enforcing his order with state and local police, we can only wait and see—and pray.
A Baltimore church hired an Illegal alien as their bus driver. He’s now charged with 19 counts of child molestation of a child who rode to church with her family in the church van he drove. “Police arrested Jose Argueta, 44, illegal alien from El Salvador. He sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl on four occasions and took pornographic images of her during several of those incidents since mid-December. Glen Burnie (Baltimore suburb) has seen a massive influx of Central Americans in recent years, as has Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. Argueta had a history of traffic violations and a DUI, yet had a valid trucking license. How was he able to remain in the country and openly drive for a church? The entire purpose of the 1986 amnesty deal was to make it illegal for someone here unlawfully to work. This alleged crime was therefore 100% preventable.”
Expansion of Brazil’s largest criminal organization, First Command of the Capital (CCP), into foreign lands has gained strength in recent years. Rooted in prisons for 26 years, it’s now present in South America and Europe, and evidence shows foreigners were baptized by the faction in Spain, Italy and US.
Alec Baldwin blasted Trump supporters on Monday for what he described as the “colossal destruction of everything that matters” in America. Yet, the opposite is true.
APOSTASY AND DOCTRINES OF DEMONS
Disney introduces kids to world of demons, witchcraft in new ‘The Owl House’ show. The cartoon series premiered January 10. Disney says the series follows teenage girl Luz, who discovers a portal to a demon-town realm where humans are not well-liked, so she disguises herself to fit in at witch school.” Luz takes up residence with Eda the Owl Lady, “the most powerful witch on Boiling Iles.” Luz says, “Someday, I’m going to be just like her.” The original pitch (for the show) was ‘girl hangs out with witch in hell.’ The art director, Ricky Cometa, said when the show’s creator Dana Terrace first approached him, she said “we’re trying to make this demon realm a part of Disney.” Cometa said, “We really wanted to make this demon realm feel like home, and just had to figure out how to do it.”
Under the Rome Dome: A circus group with scantily-clad dancers entertained Pope Francis in his reptile-shaped auditorium. But this isn’t the first time; research shows other similar performances.
Catholic bishops call on West to recognize Palestine. Israel gave away Gaza, and look what happened? The terrorist Hamas runs it now. Israel is not to blame for the plight of the people in Gaza. Hamas is. God gave Israel to the Jews. The Muslims have many nations, but they’re not satisfied. It boils down to jealousy and hatred and a desire to destroy Israel. The RCC is going against God with this call; but the RCC holds its “doctrines of men” to be more important.
Methodists not the only ones deviating from Scripture. It’s everywhere in the mainline churches. “The concepts promoted are “code-speak for [so-called] progressive ideas. But we’ve got to remember… the message of Christianity is not social revisionism and socialism: the message of the gospel is salvation through Jesus alone.
“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it” (Matthew 7:24-27).
Max Lucado’s Glowing Praise of pro-gay feminist Jen Hatmaker: What it Means and Why it Matters. So many are in error these days and moving to the left. I don’t agree with every single person the author of the site reporting this endorses either, but looking for a site that Bible-adhering believers can trust completely these days is almost like looking for a needle in a haystack. That said, the article is worth reading. Lucado, who, many may be surprised to find, supports pastors that he shouldn’t. The Gospel Coalition is moving left. The Southern Baptist Convention is falling in with that ideology. The bottom has dropped out in all mainline churches. We shouldn’t be surprised, as we’re warned about apostasy in the last days. Unity with those who embrace unbiblical values is wrong. Period.

France, the “Budding Islamic Republic.” Yves Thréard, deputy editor at the newspaper Le Figaro, said, “Not a month goes by… without a murderous attack with the cry of ‘Allahu Akbar’ taking place on our soil….

WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS
Israel concerned over renewed violence on Gaza border. Gaza factions are seeking to increase cross-border violence, as negotiations for a long-term understanding with Israel stall. The report emerges only a day after four rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli communities, and an incendiary balloon was also sent across the border. The rocket launches were attributed to an independent faction of the Islamic Jihad and came after three weeks of relative calm imposed by Hamas. Israel’s IDF carried out strikes against Hamas targets in response since they’re the ruling party in Gaza. Considering that the “Palestinian” Authority aka PLO is upset that Israel and Hamas were negotiating a truce, one wonders if they didn’t incite this faction to fire the rockets.

The Rise of Gog? Putin Positions Himself to Influence Russia For Life. The entire Russian government led by former Russian PM Medvedev resigned after Putin’s speech on constitutional reform.

In reading current events, we see that we are close to the tribulation. End-times prophesied events have converged as never before. The birth pangs have begun that will, of course, intensify during the 7-year tribulation, known as “the time of Jacob’s trouble” or Daniel’s 70th week. We must with urgency try to bring as many into the fold while we still can. The rapture of the true church, the bride of Christ, before the “time of Jacob’s trouble” begins, cannot be far away.

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled” (Luke 21:7, 29-32).
