The Brewing “Perfect Storm”
Perfect storm: “a rare combination of events or circumstances creating an unusually bad situation.”
Severe storms with hail, tornadoes, and strong winds hit parts of Midwest and South, U.S., risk of severe thunderstorms continues into weekend. Severe storms with hail, tornadoes, and strong winds ripped through parts of the Midwest and South U.S. on Wednesday night, causing damage to many homes, especially in Indiana and Arkansas. The extreme weather threats will continue into the weekend as a stronger storm system moving across the Southern portion may generate more widespread severe thunderstorms.
Southeast US: Serious Situation Developing for Sunday Night – Monday Morning… Potential Tornadoes, Severe Weather. “Even for Spring, the upcoming storm system on the way late this Easter weekend will be unusually strong. The chances for tornadoes will be going way up as we head into the early morning hours (after midnight Sunday) of Monday. This is a serious weather setup, with the latest model runs coming in stronger with the parameters we look for when forecasting severe storms and tornadoes.”
Several injured, homes damaged after 2 tornados touched down in eastern Arkansas on Wednesday. Some homes were completely destroyed. At least 10 homes on one block were demolished.
A powerful spring snowstorm pounded Maine on Thursday, causing hundreds of road accidents and disrupting power to more than 253,000 customers.
Tropical Cyclone “Harold” aftermath: Widespread destruction across Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji and Tonga. Tropical Cyclone “Harold” lashed Tonga on Thursday, after leaving major destruction across Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and Fiji. It’s the first Category 5 severe tropical cyclone to form in the South Pacific basin since 2018 and so far the strongest storm of the 2019/20 South Pacific cyclone season. The storm demolished almost all tourist resorts in Tonga with winds of up to 260 km/h (162 mph).
Wildfires burning within Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, Ukraine. Wildfires fueled by strong winds have been burning within the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine since April 4. Radiation levels near the nuclear reactor have reportedly spiked to well above normal as the fires tore through the irradiated forests. The fires are attributed to relatively dry conditions, following a warm winter that did not bring sufficient precipitation and snow cover. On April 6, authorities have more than doubled the number of firemen responding to more than 300. By Thursday, police evacuated residents from the village of Poliske, which is located within the zone.
California earthquakes: A 4.4 earthquake hit Northern California last Sunday, April 5. As reported last week, a swarm of well over 650 earthquakes have rattled Utah, Idaho and California as part of aftershocks since the 5.7 quake that struck Utah on March 18. A 5.2 earthquake struck near the California-Nevada border on April 11. No word on any damages.
In Christchurch, New Zealand, a 4.3 earthquake shook thousands across the region on April 9. The huge number of reports makes it one of New Zealand’s most felt quakes in recent months. Locals flooded Twitter to suggest they had enough on their plate while living under a coronavirus lockdown without dealing with any earthquakes.
Japan: A 5.1 earthquake struck south of Chikusei (Ibaraki prefecture) on April 12. There are no immediate reports of damage.
There were several ocean quakes over 5.0 this week, plus a 6.1.
Russia: A strong explosive eruption took place at Sheveluch volcano, Kamchatka, Russia on April 8, and explosive activity is continuing.
Indonesia: A strong magmatic eruption with volcanic ash reaching 14.3 km (47,000 feet) above sea level took place at Anak Krakatau volcano in Sunda Strait, Indonesia on April 10. This is the strongest activity at the volcano since the violent eruption and partial collapse of the volcano and deadly tsunami on December 22, 2018.
Iceland: Awakening volcanic region in Iceland could cause disruption for centuries. Volcanic activity is escalating in a region of Iceland that has not erupted for 800 years, with scientists warning it could cause disruption for centuries to come. Since January 21, the Reykjanes peninsula has experienced over 8,000 earthquakes and about 10cm (about 4 inches) of land uplift due to magma intrusions underground. Reykjanes peninsula’s last active period started in the 10th century and lasted 300 years.
Some say the world population could reach 7,777,777,777 on April 12, Easter, or as we prefer to call it, Resurrection Sunday; but it seems more likely to reach this number in a couple of days, taking into consideration a growth of about 220,000 per day.
New, 20 times larger wave of locusts threatens millions in Africa. Weeks before coronavirus spread through much of the world, parts of Africa were already threatened by another plague, the biggest locust outbreak some countries had seen in 70 years. Now the second wave, some 20 times larger, is arriving, also in places previously untouched. Billions of the young desert locusts are winging in from breeding grounds. Millions of already vulnerable people are at risk. And as they gather to try to combat the locusts, often in vain, they risk spreading the coronavirus.
According to the Quartz Africa site: Two new generations of locusts are set to descend on East Africa again—up to 400 times stronger. Favorable wet conditions due to above average rainfall this season means they are likely to achieve two generations of new breeding by June this year, increasing their population size up to 400 times.
ASIAN GIANT HORNETS
Giant Asian Hornets Now in North America. A nest was sighted for the first time in Canada in Aug/Sept and destroyed. It was sighted in Washington state in December. The giant Asian hornets are different from the yellow-legged Asian hornets that invaded Europe over a decade ago and have been a major concern. They make their nests on the ground and will start to become active this month. Over two inches long with a large wingspan, the world’s largest hornet carries a painful, sometimes lethal sting (10 or more stings, or those allergic), but it’s not interested in humans (unless disturbed) or livestock. They are a concerning, significant predator of honeybees.
Israeli COVID-19 treatment shows 100% survival rate – preliminary data. Six critically ill coronavirus patients in Israel who are considered high-risk for mortality have been treated with Pluristem’s placenta-based cell-therapy product and survived, according to preliminary data provided by the Haifa-based company.
When God said Israel would be a blessing to the nations, He meant it. He also meant it when He said those who curse Israel would be cursed (Genesis 12:3).
A Longing to Connect with God’: Bible Sales on the Rise as More People Turn to God’s Word for Comfort, Guidance. Christian publishers are reporting that sales of the Holy Bible have escalated as more people are searching for hope and encouragement during the pandemic.
President Trump Participates in Easter Blessing for Americans from Oval Office. “On this Good Friday, Christians from all around the world remember the suffering and death upon the cross of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ,” Trump began his remarks. “Easter Sunday, we will celebrate his glorious resurrection,” he continued. “Though we will not be able to gather together with one another as we normally would on Easter, we can use this sacred time to focus on prayer, reflection and growing in our personal relationship with God, so important,” he said.

President Trump calls decision on reopening US the biggest of his life, underscoring the careful line he is walking between concerns about the economy and public health during the coronavirus outbreak. “I don’t know that I’ve had a bigger decision. But I’m going to surround myself with the greatest minds. Not only the greatest minds, but the greatest minds in numerous different businesses, including the business of politics and reason,” Trump told reporters at a White House press briefing. “And we’re going to make a decision, and hopefully it’s going to be the right decision,” he continued. “I will say this. I want to get it open as soon as we can.”
Record 16.8 million have sought US jobless aid since virus. More than one in 10 workers have lost their jobs in just the past three weeks to the coronavirus outbreak.
Mardi Gras quickened spread of coronavirus in Louisiana; canceling was never recommended. I’m sorry for those who caught the virus, but I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that Carnival is carnal and vile. Always has been. Anywhere. Everywhere. Period. Coronavirus had been slowly slinking through the US for a month when Mardi Gras was held and had touched 7 states by then. How about a little common sense? Oh, I forgot. Common Sense died a while back. How about reverence for God? Oh, I forgot. There hasn’t been much of that for a while either.
Miles-long row of cars wait outside a Florida food bank as demand surges by 600% and over a half-million residents file for unemployment. Food banks have a glut of fresh produce to give away because the pandemic has forced shutting down businesses that serve food. Farmers who rely on these businesses have excess perishable food. Food not donated is thrown away or turned into mulch as there’s no set mechanism to efficiently redistribute excess produce. While people asking for food has increased six-fold, staff has been cut by three-fourths as people adhere to stay-at-home orders. This situation is repeated in other states as well.
For A Glimpse into a Dystopian Police State Future, Just Visit Walmart. For a small taste of what a Marxist-Socialist-Communist future will look like, visit Walmart to see rationing, blocked aisles, etc. Not that they don’t need to do this at this time, but it shows a glimpse of the society the deceived are longing for; they just have no clue.
More coronavirus in China. In the northern city of Suifenhe, on the border with Russia, a new makeshift hospital has been built and residents ordered to remain in their homes, after a spike in cases believed to have come Chinese citizens from Russia. As of April 9, there were a total of 127 imported cases and 137 asymptomatic cases in Suifenhe according to the China Daily which is owned by the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China.
Israel’s exit strategy: No flights or gatherings until September. Government officials say Israel may begin gradual return to normal after Passover, but ban flights and gatherings until September. Hmm… no Jews from other countries allowed to make Aliyah now (move to Israel)? Interesting…
Coronavirus: The children struggling to survive India’s lockdown. Sudden imposition of a 21-day lockdown in India to stop spread of coronavirus has thrown lives of millions of children into chaos. Tens of thousands call helplines daily while thousands go to bed hungry as the country shuts down. India has the largest child population in the world (472 million), and the lockdown has impacted 40 million children from poor families – those working in farms and fields, those who work as ragpickers in cities or sell balloons, pens and other knick-knacks at traffic lights. Sanjay Gupta, director of Chetna, a charity that works with child labourers and street children, says the worst affected are millions of homeless children who live on the streets. “Everyone has been told to stay home. But what about the street children?” he asks. According to one estimate, Delhi has over 70,000 street children. But Mr. Gupta says that number is really much higher.
War-torn Yemen’s first confirmed Covid-19 case has been recorded as the devastated nation braces for the pandemic. The Saudi-led Coalition announced a two-week ceasefire starting on Thursday. Meanwhile, the UN claims some donors have stopped their aid to Yemen over concerns that deliveries were being obstructed by Houthi forces. From mid-April, families will get aid every other month, instead of monthly. Famine is already supposedly rampant in this “Islamic” country.
WITH THE CORONAVIRUS, AGENDAS ARE ARISING: CAN YOU FEEL IT COMIN’ IN THE AIR?
Yes, the virus is real, but it’s so convenient for the Marxist-Socialist-Communist agendas to be able to ramp up – US Democrat political plans included.
Going Too Far: Mississippi Police Fine Christians $500 For Listening to Sermons While Parked in Their Cars with windows rolled up (VIDEO). There are states with abortion clinics still open, considered “essential.” We could understand for right now not having people packed inside churches. But now people are getting fined for being in a church parking lot with windows rolled up while listening to the preacher’s sermon on their car radios.
To the Leftist Bought and Paid for Media from Mark Levin: In an answer to Wolf ‘Blitzkrieg’s rants: “We KNOW the president isn’t a ‘real doctor,’ just like Wolf Blitzer has outdone himself in proving he’s not a real journalist with his coronavirus coverage. The media is SO against any mention of the drug hydroxychloroquine to help treat COVID19, but will they pledge to NOT use the drug if they themselves are diagnosed with it?” Plus, Mark Levin asks the media: “If it truly IS about saving lives, if the drug helps save ONE life, isn’t that worth it?”
Speaking of the Leftist Media, The latest #Fakenews award goes to CBS News for pushing a viral video of a nurse in tears over her alleged treatment in the coronavirus unit of the hospital she “works” at. Bernie Sanders even retweeted the video. None of these Leftists bothered to vet the story for truthfulness before reporting it.
Coincidence? Hmm…Left-sider Anthony Fauci sets stage for mandatory lucrative! vaccine. “Faux-see,” the so-called professional on the coronavirus previously said, “This (coronavirus) is not a major threat to the people of the US and this is not something that the citizens of the US right now should be worried about. Now he says the US may never go back to normal until a vaccine is developed. Surprise, surprise…not. By logical extension we can assume it would be included on the required list of shots for children to attend school. What great news for Big Pharma!
Also, Fauci’s buddy Bill Gates says, “It is fair to say things won’t go back to truly normal until we have a vaccine that we’ve gotten out to basically the entire world.” Gates says his foundation will spend billions to help build factories for seven possible coronavirus vaccine makers. “Spend” is probably the wrong word. Invest is more like it. The billionaire businessman left Microsoft to pursue other matters – specifically, to “serve humanity,” is how the Economic Times put it. For a taste of how Gates has already served humanity, just look at the disastrous Common Core education plan his foundation bankrolled.
Fauci Shows True Colors Behind Trump’s Back: Video: (1) Fauci intentionally positions himself to exit last. (2) ABC’s Jonathan Karl salutes Fauci. (3) Fauci returns gesture with ‘good job’ signal. Seems like Fauci and Karl were coordinating the antagonism toward President Trump.
W.H.O. Official Says They “Authorities may have to enter homes and remove family members.” Michael Ryan of WHO says the virus is now circulating in the home now that people are locked down, so they may need to take people out of their homes.
Tracker: Lifekey has introduced a new technology. By simply tapping the smart wristband with a smartphone, business operators and employers can instantly see whether a patron or employee is cleared for entry by a registered US physician who has vaccinated and/or tested the person for COVID-19 or its resultant antibodies. Also, while enabled, Lifekey’s powerful and secure app will keep a real-time record of your location and notify public health professionals if you come in proximity to someone who is symptomatic or has tested positive for COVID-19.
Attorney General Barr says China in ‘full-court blitzkrieg’ to undermine US elections and institutions, exercising control over key supply chains and promoting disinformation about the coronavirus.
Chilling Documentary Maps Out Likely Origin Of COVID-19. From the beginning, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) prevented organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from studying the origin of COVID-19, Gordon Chang said. The CCP’s actions speak to a problem deeper than the virus. “Every country has diseases, but in China they become national emergencies and global emergencies, because the real disease here is communism,” Chang said.

China and the WHO’s chief: Hold them both accountable for pandemic. By Bradley Thayer and Liancho, opinion contributors: “We believe the organization’s director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, like China’s Xi Jinping, should be held accountable for recklessly managing this deadly pandemic. Tedros apparently turned a blind eye to what happened in Wuhan and the rest of China and, after meeting with Xi in January, has helped China play down the severity, prevalence and scope of the COVID-19 outbreak. From the outset, Tedros has defended China despite its gross mismanagement of the highly contagious disease. As the number of cases and the death toll soared, the WHO took months to declare the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic, even though it had met the criteria of transmission between people, high fatality rates and worldwide spread.”
Just Who is This Tedros? You May Be Shocked
World Health Organization’s director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was elected to his position with the WHO in 2017, despite the fact that he was not trained as a medical doctor and had no global health management experience. A former minister of health and minister of foreign affairs for Ethiopia, Tedros is an executive member of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) political party, which came to power through a struggle in 1991 and has been listed as a perpetrator in the Global Terrorism Database. After he became the WHO’s chief, critics questioned Tedros’s attempt to appoint then-Zimbabwe (terrorist) dictator Robert Mugabe as a WHO goodwill ambassador.
Pelosi Wants to Talk Blame for COVID Spread? Here’s Video of Her Telling People To Crowd into Streets. “In George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, the protagonist works for the Ministry of Truth, where his job is to revise any past news that doesn’t fit the current narrative and send the evidence down the “memory hole” to be incinerated and forgotten. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her comrades in the establishment media are attempting to do just that when it comes to what they were doing about coronavirus until just last month. Thankfully we live in the internet age, where revising history is impossible, and Pelosi cannot run from the fact that her own actions literally set people up to catch the coronavirus.”
Senate Dems Block Small Business Relief Funding, Seek Billions for Local Media. Senate Democrats are pushing for a proposal that might send as much as $10 billion to local media outlets as part of a fourth CCP virus relief package, while blocking additional rescue funding for small businesses. This is yet further proof that Democrat leaders do not care about people, only continuing to spew their propaganda.
Bolshevik Bernie has dropped out of the Demo-crat race. His spokesperson suggested on social media that Demo-crats might (or should) replace [creepy hands] Joe Biden as their nominee. She said, “Ask yourself, is Joe Biden ready to lead this country? Could he find his car in a three-tiered parking garage? Could he navigate a salad bar?
Virginia Governor Announces Signing of Extreme Abortion Bill. And he and his minions deliberately picked what is referred to as “Good Friday” to do so. This is so vile! Mr. Infanticide Northam said, “The Reproductive Health Protection Act will make women and families safer, and I’m proud to sign it into law.” Really?! “This bill lowers the basic, common sense health and safety standards abortion facilities must meet, degrades women’s care, and will result in unsafe abortionists operating with even more impunity. It eliminates reflection periods for women seeking abortion while denying vulnerable women full truth on what abortion means, what it is and what it does.” And the Demwitted senator Jennifer McClellan said, “Today the governor signed the Virginia Reproductive Health Protection Act to remove onerous restrictions on a woman’s ability to access abortion care. Proud to have led the charge with C. Herring on this historic measure.”
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers… unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection… incontinent [without self-control], fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God… from such turn away. 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. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith” (2 Timothy 3:1-9).
So-called “Essential” Abortion Clinic Killed 40 Babies on Palm Sunday in Kansas. Trust Women Wichita was open, conducting about 40 abortions – one of which led to an emergency hospital visit. Sedgwick County Commissioners voted 4-1 last week to recommend it halt abortions during the pandemic. They cited heavy traffic to the facility from out of state, increasing chances of spreading the Coronavirus. Abortionists also are traveling to the facility from other states. Last week, Wisconsin abortionist Cheryl Chastine conducted at Trust Women though not licensed to practice in Kansas at that time. The week before, a California abortionist was at Trust Women after reportedly treating COVID-19 patients without being tested for the virus. In response to the Sedgwick County vote, Democrat Gov. Laura Kelly declared abortions to be “essential services” and exempted Trust Women from her ban on “non-essential” medical procedures.
Hawaii Senator Says Quit Worrying About Aborted Babies; Focus on “Children Who are Here Already.” “Senator Mazie Hirono has said a lot of crazy things over the years. One of her most famous is telling men to shut up. But her comment during a hearing on a bill that would ban late-term abortions may take the cake. Hirono said her fellow members of Congress should quit worrying about babies who are killed in abortions and should instead focus on children who are here already. Never mind that unborn babies are already here.”
DAYS OF LOT RETURNED
LGBT Activists Slam COVID-19 Aid – Because It’s Run by Christians. Judah Robinson with Now This News, said, “The makeshift hospital…is built and run by…the relief organization of notoriously anti-LGBTQ+ minister Franklin Graham.” An NBC headline said, “Group behind Central Park’s COVID-19 field hospital run by antigay evangelist.” NBC added that it’s raised eyebrows due to a request for volunteers that adhere to its statement of faith including “human life is sacred from conception to its natural end.” But most offensive to complainers is that Samaritan’s Purse has a Christian position on sexuality. Graham responded to this by saying, “Samaritan’s Purse treats everyone we help the same. We do not make distinctions about an individual’s religion, race, sexual orientation, or economic status.”

WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS
Attack on Syrian regime’s Shayrat airbase, pictures reveal massive damage. Still awaiting prophetic fulfillment of Isaiah 17. It will be done. The cratered runway will slow Iran’s ability to move weapons to Syria and Hezbollah. Satellite images revealed damage to a key Syrian regime airbase on April 8. The site was struck on March 31. ImageSat International, which published the images, noted that it had revealed “evidence of a massive strike in Shayrat Airbase, located in Homs, Syria.” No country has claimed responsibility. Syria’s state media blamed Israel and claimed Syrian air defense downed numerous incoming missiles on the night of the attack.

ISRAEL’S ELECTION DEFLECTION IN THESE LAST DAYS
Stalled talks on “Unity” Government. Both sides blame each other for the stalemate. Earlier this week reports stated that Gantz threatened Netanyahu with anti-Netanyahu legislation if he would not make concessions. Netanyahu had compromised on controlling the selection committee for new judges, and Gantz had supposedly compromised on how and when to implement Trump’s Middle East peace plan. But apparently Gantz reneged. Netanyahu’s Lukid Party stated, “From the first moment, it was agreed that the unity government would stand on two clear lines — joint decision-making on all issues and promoting the application of sovereignty [over the West Bank]. Unfortunately, at the last minute, Blue and White reversed on these agreements, which are a necessary basis for any equal unity government.”
LAST DAYS FALSE PROPHETS
Scamvangelist Kenneth Copeland at it again. Now he’s commanding the “south wind” to banish the coronavirus. This false prophet with deep pockets couldn’t command any kind of wind to come forth except his own hot air. He also says, “This ministry will receive, this year — are you listening to me now? God just kept laying this on me, just kept laying this on me… of course, I didn’t have any idea all of this [virus] mess was gonna happen, but God did — and the Lord had already dropped in my spirit and in my heart several years ago — about three years ago — that the income of this ministry, this year , had to be $300 million! Amen! Had to be! So in response to what He kept pushing me to do, we prepared a heavenly grant — our attorney looked at it and he put it in proper legal language… And it is on file in Heaven,” he says. “It’ll come in this year. It can’t not come in this year. And there’s no virus gonna keep it from happening in my house or yours.”
“Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself” (Timothy 6:5).
“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not” (2 Peter 2:3).
Pope Francis still continues with his deceptive words this week in his “Mystery of Judas” mass. Francis says he’s not sure Judas is condemned to hell since he was a friend of Jesus. However, there’s no mystery; it’s obvious that he is. Read on…
Jesus said, “The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born” (Matthew 26:24).
Unlike the other disciples and followers who made professions of loyalty and faith in Jesus as Lord (John 6:68; 11:16), the Bible never speaks of Judas doing so. He only called Jesus Rabbi (a teacher). He used his position as the group’s treasurer to steal their money (John 12:6). Jesus knew from the start that Judas was a traitor. He told His disciples, “…one of you is a devil” (John 6:70). Jesus said to them, “…and ye are clean, but not all. For he knew who should betray him” (John 13:10-11).
Jesus said “…one of you shall betray me… it is, to whom I shall give a sop [bread dipped in milk]… And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot… And after the sop Satan entered into him.” (John 13:21, 26-27). When praying for His disciples, Jesus said, “…none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled” (John 17:12).
Also, it was Judas who kissed Jesus, the kiss of betrayal, to let the guards whom he had led to Jesus know which one was Jesus (Luke 22:47-48). The 30 pieces of silver Judas received was blood money, so even though Judas threw the money down when he realized they were going to kill Jesus, the chief priests could not use it and purchased a potter’s field (Matthew 27:7-10)—the same one Judas hanged himself in.
Peter said, “Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem… the field of blood. For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein” (Acts 1:15-20). Even though Judas didn’t personally buy the field, he acquired it through his wicked act.
When a replacement was being chosen for Judas: “And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place” (Acts 1:24-25).
Does that sound like Judas was saved? No. He may have been remorseful that Jesus was going to be killed, but he obviously didn’t believe Jesus is the Lord, of whom he could ask forgiveness.
This is not the first time Francis indicated that Judas might be saved. The Catholic site “Novus Ordo Watch” that speaks against Vatican II reforms, the Novus Order (new order) and calls Francis a heretic, spoke of other times when he did so. The site spoke of Francis falsely claiming that a sculpture (photo in the article) – which obviously depicted Judas hanging on one side – also showed Christ on the other side carrying him on His shoulders with a smile “that is a little bit complicit” (The sculpture obviously is not meant to depict Christ.) Francis wants everyone to believe everyone is Jesus’ friend and they’re saved in the universal religion he promotes.
If you can’t smell the treachery in the air and feel what’s coming, you must be lacking those senses. Indeed, the world is facing a coming “perfect storm” with the pandemic and all that has emerged from it. Globalists are pushing their agenda harder than ever now. The world is fearful, and many will worship any leader who would step in and make everything okay again, or so they will be deceived into believing. We students of Bible prophecy know what this all means: a global economy and global false religion leading up to the mark of the beast, where no one will be able to buy and sell or hold a job unless they take the Antichrist’s mark of worship. But take heart; we who are in Christ are not appointed for the wrath to come.
“Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth” (Revelation 3:10).
Notice the scripture does not say “through” it but “from” it.
Watch the video at this link showing the beginning of the apostle John’s vision, taken to heaven while exiled on the island of Patmos, as you listen to the beautiful song “For Your Name is Holy” by Paul Wilbur.
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter” (Revelation 4:1).
