Tribulation Preview



Some are wondering if this is a biological weapon that either accidentally or purposefully escaped a lab in China. Others wonder if this is God’s warning in these last days to a world population that is worshiping everything but Him. And there’s no doubt that the leftist politicians and media in the US are fanning the flames for their own agenda of taking down the president, blaming him for literally everything they can think of. What we as Christians do know is that no matter what, God is in control and we can trust Him. This is not the pestilence of the Tribulation, but it certainly is a foretaste just like the other converged signs. Take this time to share the gospel of Christ, pray, and keep looking up. A two-minute word of encouragement from Pastor J.D. Farag is at this link.

Wuhan residents under lockdown under armed guard are not buying Xi Jinping’s claim of victory over coronavirusChinese president Xi Jinping claimed initial success had been made in stabilizing the situation and turning the tide in Hubei and Wuhan. However, Apple Inc is reopening all 43 of its branded stores in China, according to its website, more than a month after they were shut in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Also, the province at the center of China’s virus outbreak is allowing factories and some other businesses to reopen in a new sign Beijing believes the outbreak that devastated its economy is being brought under control. Could this be a good sign that this pandemic will run its course and fade away soon? We pray so.

WHO declares coronavirus global pandemic. Folks, just take the needed precautions. The CDC advised senior citizens, especially those with underlying health issues who are the ones at high risk, to stock up in case they get this virus. But this caused many others to excessively hoard many needed items. Also, you should know that this pandemic, for some mysterious reason, is sparing young children. Here is an article on the coronavirus and how to protect yourself and your family: Information about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The mainstream media is lying when it says Obama had a handle on the H1N1 epidemic before it got out of hand. From a 2009 CNN article: “Since the H1N1 flu pandemic began in April, millions of people in the United States have been infected, at least 20,000 have been hospitalized and more than 1,000 have died, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.” Notice the date when Obama declared it a national emergency—six months later. By then it was out of control. And by the time the pandemic ended, there had been an average of 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), an average of 274,304 hospitalizations (195,086-402,719), and an average of 12,469 deaths (range 8868-18,306) in the US due to H1N1, according to the CDC.

Iran leaders hate Israel but okay buying any future Israeli coronavirus vaccine. A prominent Iranian cleric said it’s permissible to use a future coronavirus vaccine developed by Israel if “there is no substitute.” The Iranian regime views Israel as a mortal enemy. But Iran has also faced one of the most severe outbreaks of the coronavirus outside of China. Those who hate Israel come running when the chips are down. If the fools who think they can boycott Israeli products were really doing so completely, they’d be in the dark ages.


 Indonesia: Dengue fever outbreak is sweeping across the country. Authorities have reported 16,099 cases nationwide since January and at least 100 fatalities.

India: Animal husbandry officials collect samples after death of dozens of bats in Karassery. This comes in the wake of two strains of bird flu detected next door in two poultry farms. Officials began culling as many as 12,000 birds: mainly chicken, love birds and turkey in a one-km radius of the poultry farms where the outbreak was reported. To prevent spread of the flu, animal husbandry officers ordered closure of chicken farms and shops selling chicken and eggs within a ten-km radius of the epicenter.


Washington State: Satanists given a permit to conduct a ritual on the Capitol steps during 2020 Legislative Session. They weren’t allowed inside, but shouldn’t have been allowed outside either. Christian groups and followers caught wind of the Satanist celebrants and showed up to sing and pray in the name of Jesus.


A 14-year-old Israeli boy was seriously wounded overnight Wednesday after “Palestinian” attackers hurled a rock at his head near the West Bank. He was placed under an induced coma with respiratory support in severe but stable condition.


Facebook shut down Christian page for warning homosexuality is a sin. More than 70 attempts to contact the social media platform went unanswered after a sign was ‘unpublished.’ Katrima Smalley operated the “Jesus Word Is True” Facebook page for more than 11 years, accumulating more than 800,000 followers in the process. But the Christian page has been shut down since last November on the grounds that its affirmation of Biblical teaching on homosexuality constitutes “hate speech.”

Others who have Christian pages with a large number of viewers have noticed that if they post anything against the Democrat Party or homosexuality, their readership is lowered significantly as punishment. Some have even been removed.


Washington State: Parents push back against Wash. state sex ed bill; gov. expected to sign. Despite considerable public pushback, lawmakers approved a comprehensive sex ed curriculum for public school students that is tantamount to grooming. Republicans opposed it; Democrats approved it. Around the country, particularly in politically liberal states, sex-ed curriculum and resources featuring explicit descriptions of various sexual acts and cartoon images that appear pornographic have been contested by parents. Also included in the lessons is promotion of the idea that some people might be born in the wrong body and that biological sex exists on a spectrum.

VIDEO: ‘Transgender’ Brutally Attacks 3 Strangers with an Axe after date Finds out She/he/they is a Man. Just heard about this one from several months ago. Before the attack, Amati messaged the date, “One day I’m going to kill a lot of people… for hating something so innocent.” An hour later, Amati carried out the attack. Amati only received a 9-year prison sentence with possible release in 4 ½ years.

Missouri Lawmaker Trying To Ban Drag Queens From Reading To Kids Says He’s Faced ‘Vitriol’ And ‘Hate,’ Death Threats. Republican state Rep. Ben Baker’s bill seeks to ban Drag Queen Story Hour in public libraries and fine or jail librarians for violating rules regarding “age-inappropriate sexual materials” for children.

Biden Unveils Vast LGBT Plan Overturning Trump’s Religious Liberty Protections. Biden’s 7,000-word plan would ban conversion therapy (that helps guide people out of this deviant lifestyle), guarantee ‘transgender’ students access to bathrooms and locker rooms of their choosing, and add a “third gender” option on government forms for ‘non-binary’ individuals. The Biden plan pledges to overturn a 2019 Trump religious liberty proposal that would allow faith-based adoption and foster care agencies to receive federal grants if they don’t place children in same-sex homes.

Former Democrat Gubernatorial Candidate Andrew Gillum Found With Crystal Meth, Two Men, One a Gay Male Escort and Pornstar Performer, In Miami Hotel Room. Gillum, who came close to being governor of Florida in 2018, was involved in quite the party. Paramedics were called by one of the men, Aldo Mejias, to the room before police arrived to treat the escort Travis Dyson, who was overdosing from what was described as crystal meth. Gillum, who was vomiting and unable to speak coherently, was transferred to another hotel room without being arrested, while Dyson was hospitalized. This Gateway Pundit reporter was lambasted by Florida media and Democrat heavyweights for reporting about Gillum’s wild romps with a well-known lobbyist, that included lavish trips to New York and Costa Rica.

Pornhub Offers Quarantined Italians Free Premium Porn to Pass the Time During Coronavirus. The country has been harder hit than any other country except China.


Pro-life students praying outside Planned Parenthood abortion center met with lewd acts, as woman is recorded saying ‘Hail Satan.’ The organizer of the local 40 Days for Life campaign expected opposition, but didn’t think it would be so violence-oriented. A man exposed himself to the group when he stopped at a red light, women yelled “My body, my choice,” one said “Hail Satan,” and someone threw a vial with liquid at them. “They say to us, ‘We hope you get raped,’ ‘We hope you die,’ ‘Your mother should’ve aborted you,’ and every cuss word you can imagine,” she said. “It’s just so, so violent, so dark.”

Dem Congresswoman compares abortion with ‘wisdom teeth extraction.’ California Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) claims, “Abortion is extremely safe. The risk of complication is lower than from a colonoscopy, wisdom tooth removal or a tonsillectomy, which do not require admitting privileges” to a hospital. Yet, besides the complete disregard for human life, risks of a surgical abortion include hemorrhage, infection, and injury to the uterus or cervix. A medicated abortion procedure includes risks such as incomplete abortion, heavy and continued bleeding, and infection.

Pelosi attempted to sneak taxpayer-funded abortions into the coronavirus relief bill. Pelosi tried to put a Hyde amendment loophole in the coronavirus bill in order to create a federal ‘slush fund’ for abortions.

So it was then, so it is now in the world at large that has become a stench in the nostrils of God in many ways.For though you wash yourself with lye, and use much soap, yet your iniquity is marked before Me,’ says the Lord God. ‘How can you say, ‘I am not polluted, I have not gone after the Baals’? See your way in the valley; know what you have done: You are a swift dromedary breaking loose in her ways, a wild donkey used to the wilderness, that sniffs at the wind in her desire… O generation, see the word of the Lord… you have also taught the wicked women your ways. Also on your skirts is found the blood of the lives of the poor innocents” (from Jeremiah 2).


Middle East “Dragon” Storm: Rare Intense Cyclone. The storm brought torrential rain and strong winds to parts of the Middle East, including areas in Egypt, causing widespread flooding. 21 people died in Egypt. In Jordan, a sandstorm covering vehicles and buildings. The JMD reissued weekend warnings of powerful gusts, low to zero visibility due to sandstorms especially prior to rainfall and thunderstorms at night. The sandstorm was said to have affected Egypt as well. The storm also caused high winds in Eilat, Israel.

Pakistan: 33 killed, dozens injured as very heavy rains hit Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.  Over 140 properties have been damaged in rains that began on Wednesday, March 4 and continued this whole week.

Rwanda: Heavy rains, floods, landslides claim at least 60 lives; over 1,000 homes damaged. This has been going on since January. Over 11,000 residents in the capital Kigali are set to be relocated from high-risk zones as destructive rains are forecast to continue until May.

South Africa: Heavy rains contribute to destructive sinkholes forming in Gauteng, swallowing homes and roads. As a result, over 25,000 residents could soon be forced to evacuate. This region is well known for its karst landscape (made up of soluble rocks) and numerous sinkholes since the 1950s. But heavy rains in recent months have increased the problem. Several houses, roads, and streets have already vanished in some places. Sewer pipes have also been affected, leaving a stench over the area. Some people have turned the sinkholes into dumping sites, while some have abandoned their houses. And robbers are looting abandoned homes.

Russia: Blizzard disrupts power and travel to thousands in Sakhalin Island with winds up to 119 km/h (74 mph). The severe weather caused widespread disruptions.


California: Cluster of 10 earthquakes rattles northern California coastal towns. Largest is 5.8Last Sunday, the 5.8 earthquake 53 miles west of Petrolia was one of 10 recorded in the area in 24 hours. The other nine ranged from a 2.5 to 4.9, and people from hundreds of miles away reported feeling them.

New Zealand: Moderate 5.9 quake rattles Bay of Plenty. The quake hit offshore on Saturday. Also on Saturday, a 6.4 earthquake hit the Kermadec Islands that are uninhabited except for the permanently manned Raoul Island Station, the northernmost outpost of New Zealand. The islands are a volcanic arc.


Philippines: The Kanlaon Volcano started showing unrest Wednesday, prompting volcanologists to raise the threat alert level. 80 volcanic earthquakes have been recorded since March 9, including 77 low-frequency tremors associated with magma movement. This increase in activity may be succeeded by sudden and hazardous steam-driven eruptions.


In Minnesota: Middle school hangs LGBT flag in cafeteria, bans flag of traditional family. The school which teaches students from Grades 5 through 8, denied other flags, such as the historical American Gadsden (Don’t Tread on Me) flag and a banner depicting a traditional family, showing that officials are imposing ideological beliefs on students.

The Liberalism Virus Has Infected Schools. Long before the coronavirus, liberalism infected the schools. Bill Gates, who has worked tirelessly to influence children’s education, warned back in 2015 about the likelihood of a global pandemic within the coming 20 years. He wrote, “Of all the things that could kill more than 10 million people around the world, the most likely is an epidemic stemming from either natural causes or bioterrorism.” He ignores the current national trend toward the biggest killer of the recent century, socialism, which is responsible for over a million deaths in the last century.

Journalist Jonathan Chait giddy at the thought of Wuhan Virus ‘finishing’ Trump off politically. “Can you imagine the fit the Left would’ve thrown if conservative-leaning journos had so nonchalantly talked about things ‘finishing Obama off politically’? Especially a virus? The accusations of racism and fascism and every other ‘ism’ out there would have been off the charts.”

Biden Mistakenly Ranted About AR-14s; Told Detroit Auto Worker, “You’re Full of S…t.” On Tuesday, after an auto worker accused Biden of “trying to diminish our second amendment right and take away our guns,” Biden said, “You’re full of s..t,” before mistakenly rambling about “AR-14s” (which don’t exist) instead of AR-15 rifles. Not only can’t Biden get rudimentary gun facts right, almost everything he says on the matter is fatuous. A few weeks ago, he told a cheering crowd that 150 million Americans [half the population] had been murdered on the streets of the US by firearms since 2007. This was about week after his silly rant noting that revolutionary AK-47-wielding Americans would be slaughtered by F-15s.

Bernie Sanders Endorsed by Anti-Semite Jesse Jackson. Sanders announced Sunday that Jesse Jackson was formally backing him. Jackson appeared with Sanders during a campaign stop in Michigan. Jackson said, “The most progressive social and economic path gives us the best chance to catch up, and Senator Bernie Sanders represents the most progressive path. That’s why I choose to endorse him today.” Jackson has long had ties to the Socialist/Communist Party. Jackson clashed with Martin Luther King Jr. on a number of occasions during the Sixties, and he has often overstated the closeness of his relationship to King—even claiming to have been the last person King spoke to after he had been mortally wounded by an assassin’s bullet on April 4, 1968. That is a lie. Sanders has also been endorsed by a number of Muslim politicians and groups.

New Indictment Reveals Another Obama Admin Scandal, From Someone Already Involved in Prior Obama Admin Scandal. Democrat politicians and lamestream media claim the only scandal in the Obama administration was that he wore a tan suit. In reality, there was so much scandal we’re still having to unravel it. What is true is that no one has been held to account for all the many scandals of the Obama administration. Until perhaps now.

Former Obama-era Homeland Security Acting General, Charles Edwards, is charged with raiding secret databases and defrauding the government. Also, Murali Yamazula Venkata, who worked for Edwards, has been charged with destroying government documents in addition to fraud. Others are also said to have been involved.

UN Human Rights Council applauded Iran in a periodic review of Iran’s human rights record. Seriously?


In Florida: Illegal alien only cited with ticket for “careless driving” after rear-ending a van that killed a mother, two of her children and the grandmother. Two other children, their father and grandfather who were also in the minivan survived. But after killing 4 people, Lucas Dos Reis Laurindo was only cited with a ticket, the strongest charge that could be made under Florida law. He is currently in custody on a visa violation. No doubt, he’ll be back on the street since Visa violations and coming here illegally do not mean anything to certain segments of society these days.

‘Just The Beginning’: Trump Strikes Notorious Mexican Drug Cartel, 600+ Arrests Made. Trump’s administration has just dealt an unprecedented blow to the most notorious drug cartel in Mexico.


Europe Under Siege. Barbarians are storming the gates but Europeans still won’t pull in the welcome mat. Turkey’s Erdogan, in violation of an agreement with the EU that netted him billions, has allowed and encouraged these people, who’ve been routinely described in Western media as “refugees” and “migrants,” to storm the border separating his country from the EU’s southeastern satrapy, Greece. He’s lent them (Muslim males of military age) active support, providing many with free transport to the border, which they’ve attacked with rocks, “makeshift battering rams,” and tear-gas canisters (supplied by Erdogan) while setting fires and shouting “Allahu akbar!” Photos underscore how perverse it is to call these thugs “refugees” or “migrants.” Seems like old times. What’s different now is, whereas 17th-century Europeans understood what they were confronting, in Islamic invaders, an existential threat to their way of life, many of their descendants don’t have a clue what they’re dealing with!


Iraq: Two attacks this week that killed and wounded American troops. 2 US troops, 1 British troop killed in rocket attack on Wednesday. A dozen others were wounded, five seriously. As many as 30 rockets were fired, 18 of which struck the base. In response, the U.S. military launched multiple retaliatory strikes targeting five bases used by Iranian-backed Shia militias believed to be behind the rocket attack. Then, on Saturday, American troops were wounded in a new Iraqi rocket attack. Dozens of rockets slammed into the same an Iraqi base, wounding 3 American and 2 Iraqi troops.

Damascus, Syria: Senior Iran Quds Force commander assassinated in Damascus suburb, named Farhad Dabirian.

Iran, the country that has constantly threatened Israel and is considered a threat to the world, is in a governance mess, a diplomatic mess, a financial mess, a social mess, and now a health mess. With 500 dead, Iran to empty the streets, check all 80 million + people for virus. Iran said Friday that security forces will clear the streets nationwide within 24 hours so all citizens can be checked for coronavirus — its toughest measure yet to combat the outbreak. The COVID-19 epidemic has infected more than 11,000 there. We know what Iran is prophesied to do to get back some needed power in the near future.

Gog Hog’s Power Push: Putin’s push for a constitutional change that could potentially place his patootie in power through 2036 was promoted by parliament’s lower House on Tuesday, but must still be approved by Russia’s Constitutional Court and a public referendum to be held in April. Putin is determined to hold power into perpetuity.


Liberman sets out secularist conditions for joining coalition; Gantz agrees. Once a close ally of Netanyahu, Liberman has been a thorn in the prime minister’s side since May 2019, when his insistence on a secularist agenda during coalition-building talks with Netanyahu and his ultra-Orthodox allies following the April election scuppered the negotiations and led Netanyahu to disband the Knesset and call a new vote. Definition of secular: of or relating to worldly things or to things that are not regarded as religious, spiritual, or sacred; temporal; a system of political or social philosophy that rejects all forms of religious faith and worship.


China Threatens to Cut Off Medicine, Throw America into ‘Mighty Sea of Coronavirus.’ Thanks to US companies who moved to China or have everything made in China, including the VAST majority of medicines and medical supplies. Our president is against all this globalism, but sheeple are deceived into thinking globalism (aka Socialism/Communism) is great. These Kings of the East want the world to stop blaming them for allowing the virus to get out of hand while they hid it. They’ve become as determined to wipe the first months of coronavirus from the history pages as they are to keep the world from remembering Tiananmen Square. The Xinhua article made a point of noting China has leverage over the US and Europe because it can restrict supply of medicines unwisely outsourced to China.


Evangelical Protestants, Adventists, Muslims, Buddhists, Catholics and Pagans, Gathered at the “Ring of Peace” Interfaith Ceremony. This event which occurred several months ago in Lindau, Germany, somehow slipped under the radar: the 10th United Nations Alliance of Civilizations Religions for Peace World Assembly. The “Ring of Peace” a 25-foot sculpture, was erected to be a “permanent, multi-faith symbol” of interfaith cooperation. “From Ring of Peace” website: “In many world religions, the ring symbolizes loyalty, truthfulness and honesty. The Buddhist Wheel of Life, the signet ring of the Prophet Mohammed in Islam, the Ring of Solomon in Judaism or Lessing’s Ring Parable [a tale that equates different faiths as one] are only a few examples. As a ’round whole,’ equal and absolute in itself, the ring symbolizes the complementary and mutually completing nature of world religions, whose unity embodies the entirety of the consciousness.”

Socialist Miguel Cuyaubé, UN High-Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations, spoke at the event. He said, “After all, all faiths are intertwined and interlinked together, complimenting each other and nurturing the same values that are also Universal values that unites us as One Humanity and Many cultures and many religions. That is the motto of UNAOC and its raison d’etre. At UNAOC we firmly believe that enlightened religious leaders and scholars of all faiths have a key role to play.”

“But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-3).


By Hal Lindsey: “Ever wonder what the last days of this age will look like? Well… look around. Please don’t misunderstand. This is not the tribulation that Jesus, Daniel, and others in the Bible warned about. We know Christians will be gone before that begins. But as we get closer to that time, we can see how those events are preparing to play out. Read the rest of “Tribulation Preview” here.

“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-11).

Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).
