Heathens in High Places
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).
LAST DAYS OF LOT RETURNED
South Korean national and hundreds of others charged worldwide in takedown of largest darknet child pornography website funded by bitcoin. Jong Woo Son, a South Korean national, was indicted by a federal grand jury in D.C. for his operation of Welcome To Video, the largest child sexual exploitation market by volume of content. Son has also been charged and convicted in South Korea. An additional 337 site users in 23 US states and DC, the UK, South Korea, Germany, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Czech Republic, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Brazil and Australia have been arrested and charged.
Pedophilia in Anime: 10 Times Anime Normalized Extremely Questionable Acts. “Fans who’ve been watching anime for a while know anime is an extremely problematic medium. From incest to pedophilia to abuse – there isn’t much that Japan hasn’t kawaii-fied and presented to their non-Japanese audience as something totally normal.”
UN Report on Religious Freedom Deems Abortion and Gender Identity as Human Rights. Ahmed Shaheed, the U.N. expert responsible for protecting religious freedom, advances a “progressive” agenda of abortion and new “rights” based on membership in sexual identity groups.
WHO Guidelines Encourage Children Younger Than 4 be Taught “Masturbation” and “Gender Identity.” World Health Organization’s ‘Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe: A framework for policymakers, educational and health authorities and specialists,’ advises that children aged 0-4 be given “information about enjoyment and pleasure when touching one’s body.” Toddlers are also to be encouraged to “gain an awareness of gender identity” and given “the right to explore gender identities.” In the ages 4-6 bracket, educators are urged to “give information about same-sex relationships” and “help children develop respect for different norms regarding sexuality.”
No child this age should be exposed to this. Despite WHO’s complicity in China’s cover-up of the coronavirus outbreak, the media holds up WHO as beyond reproach. Social media networks remove material and ban those who criticize WHO’s guidelines. Given that this global health body is pushing such sickness onto toddlers, Trump’s decision to withdraw WHO funding is more warranted than ever.
America’s First Gay Spy Chief Makes LGBT Radicalism First Priority. Richard Grenell, acting director of national intelligence, thinks it’s time for America to stop sharing information with countries who aren’t as pro-LGBT as he is. Most everyone in America fiercely opposes violence against anyone based on their sexuality. But that doesn’t mean we should put our country’s safety at risk to threaten other countries into accepting what was only forced on America by our U.S. Supreme Court.
California DA: 7 ‘high risk’ sex offenders released from jail. Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer warned about seven “high risk” registered sex offenders who were released recently, months earlier than they were supposed to be (They should stay behind bars). A number of them had parole violations, including removal or disabling GPS monitors. Their crimes ranged from indecent exposure and sexual battery to child molestation. Jail populations in Orange County have been reduced by nearly 45% since March 7, so they can’t use the excuse of overcrowding (no excuse anyway).
HATRED OF JEWS AND ISRAEL AKA HATRED OF GOD
Anti-Semitic incidents in Canada reach record high for 4th year in a row. The audit noted that assaults became more blatant and violent in 2019, with several taking place in broad daylight and some directly in front of eyewitnesses.
Arabic social media campaign compares Jews to coronavirus. “Palestinian” and some Arab leaders have used the pandemic to spread and promote antisemitism and irrational anti-Israel hatred.
HATRED OF CHRISTIANITY AKA HATRED OF GOD
New York City threatens Jews and Christians but caters to Muslims. Mayor de Blasio will give at least 400 thousand meals to Muslims for Ramadan. Yet, last month, he threatened to permanently shutter churches and synagogues ahead of Easter and Passover.
California Governor to Allow Childcare and Schools, etc, to Open in ‘Weeks,’ But Says He Will Keep Churches Closed Longer. Newsom will allow businesses, schools and childcare facilities to open up in weeks, but not churches.
Facebook removes Army chaplains’ prayer videos after complaints from activist group. Military Religious Freedom Foundation shared a post about their successful efforts to flag and have religious videos shared on official military pages removed from Facebook.
Cameroon admits soldiers, ‘vigilantes’ killed 10 kids, 3 women in massacre. After claiming that allegations of soldiers being complicit in the massacre in Ngarbuh village on Feb. 13 and Feb. 14 were false, Cameroon’s government has announced that three soldiers are on trial for their role in killing innocent civilians and burning homes in the majority Christian Anglophone region.
Death and Destruction: Muslim against Christian. Nigeria and Burkina Faso are current hotbeds of persecution and slaughter of Christians. Political scientist Samuel Huntington wrote in the 90s that Muslims make up about one-fifth of the world’s population but they’ve been far more involved in violence than any other civilization. It’s only gotten worse since. One need only look at Western European nations with significant Muslim populations—where crimes, riots, rapes and other forms of “anti-infidel” assaults proliferate.
ABORTION ABOMINATION AND DEPOPULATION AGENDA
Why So Many Pro-Lifers Are Worried About Bill Gates’s “Charity.” Why doubt intentions of a man who throws mountains of cash at health crises around the world? Gates donates “generously” to the abortion industry worldwide. And he’s proposed issuing “digital certificates” to prove who’s received the coronavirus vaccination. Bill Gates and his ilk lie about abortion, say destroying a child in the womb is “healthcare” and “an essential service.” They say abortion is safe, that the child in the womb isn’t a child, that gender-dysphoric children and teens must be given puberty-blockers and surgical mutilation, and that sexual promiscuity is healthy. They now face the suspicion of millions, and they pretend not to understand why.
Planned Parenthood CEO: Killing Babies is Great, Banning Abortions is “Unconscionable.” Planned Parenthood leader Alexis McGill Johnson called pro-life lawmakers’ efforts to protect unborn babies “unconscionable.” Yet, Planned Parenthood aborted 346,000 babies last year while reaping in $1.6 billion in revenue. Though abortions are unnecessary, life-destroying procedures, Johnson referred to them as “healthcare.” She criticized Texas Gov. Abbott and others for including elective abortions in their temporary bans on non-essential healthcare during the pandemic. Planned Parenthood is suing governors to keep their “baby-parts mill” open during the crisis.
Hillary Clinton: “Every Woman in This Country” Must be Able to Have an Abortion. She suggested that pro-abortion politicians use the coronavirus crisis to push for more abortions during a conversation Tuesday with Joe Biden, and she wants taxpayers to fund them.
Hypocrite Happenings: Leftist Lunacy. Actress Ashley Judd says if Pro-Lifers “Valued People’s Lives” They Wouldn’t Oppose Abortion Clinics Being Open. Judd claims it’s “essential healthcare.” Then there’s Actress Ellen Barkin who Blames Trump for Coronavirus Deaths, But Supports Abortion that has killed 61 million babies and counting.
APOSTASY; DOCTRINES OF DEMONS
Catholics In Four States in Mexico Persecute Protestants. The report draws attention to violations happening within religious minority communities in Chiapas, Guerrero, Hidalgo and Oaxaca, as “little has been done” to address the violence and violations. This has been going on for some time. There are even reports of homes destroyed and Protestants threatened with lynching or crucifixion.

LAST DAYS TRAITORS: A FUNGUS AMONG US
“Paid for the d@^^^ virus that’s killing us”: Giuliani rips Fauci over grants to Wuhan laboratory. Giuliani questioned Dr. Fauci’s involvement in grants from the US to a lab in Wuhan during the Obama administration that has been tied to the coronavirus pandemic.
Liberal Reporter Blames President Trump for Coronavirus. New York magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi’s question to Trump was, “If an American president loses more Americans over the course of six weeks than died in the entirety of the Vietnam war, does he deserve to be re-elected?” Predictably, Nuzzi was already beloved among media elites and “progressive” charlatans, but even more so now. Of course, they ignore the facts. For instance, Pelosi went out in a crowd in Chinatown on Feb 24, hugging people and encouraging others to do the same. Even the Washington Post admitted in a Feb 21 report that Trump was not told coronavirus-infected Americans would be flown home from an infected cruise ship instead of staying in quarantine. Not to mention the downplaying that WHO and Fauci did in the early stages.
Homeschooling Under Fire – Harvard To Host Digital Anti-Homeschool Summit. Suddenly, parents are managing their children’s schooling – and there’s nothing more dangerous to the Left’s long-term agenda than parents finding out what that agenda consists of. Maybe that’s why the latest attacks on homeschooling… Odd that Harvard’s Elizabeth Bartholet would pick now to declare war on one of the most successful education movements in the country before COVID-19: homeschooling. But with the majority of parents thrust into their kids’ day-to-day learning, liberals must have sensed the threat.
MSNBC Attacks Trump For Using The DPA (Defense Production Act) After Criticizing Trump For Not Using The DPA. President Trump used the Defense Production Act to ensure beef, pork, poultry and egg plants keep operating to avoid food shortage. That didn’t sit well with MSNBC Chris Hayes who objected to Trump using the DPA after blasting Trump for not using the DPA.
Documents Expose FBI Entrapment of General Flynn. Will we finally see consequences for a deep state lackey? When asked who went around the protocol of going through the WH Counsel’s office and instead decided to send FBI agents into the White House for the Flynn perjury trap …Comey smugly responds “I sent them.” “What’s especially terrifying is that without the integrity of Attorney General Barr and U.S. Attorney Jensen, we still wouldn’t have this clear exculpatory information, as Mr. Van Grack and the prosecutors have opposed every request we have made,” said Powell. Steele’s court testimony clearly links DNC, Clinton campaign, Obama White House, and other bad faith political actors to the bogus dossier used to launch an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016.
UN Human Rights Council Praises Iran. One of the worst examples we can identify as a conscious distortion of reality is the way in which the UN Human Rights Council, in its 5-year report on the Islamic Republic of Iran, lavished praise on the despotic regime with a horrible human rights record. Yet many people who boycott Israel refuse to boycott Iran. The irony is mind-boggling.
Venezuela’s Maduro Looted 9 Tons of Gold Bars and Shipped Them to Iran. Iranian jets flew in parts, technicians, and gasoline additives to fix a major refinery in Venezuela, and they flew out with gold bars. In 2011, Chavez brought into Venezuela $11 billion worth of gold bars from storage in other countries. The US, which is backing an attempt by opposition leader Juan Guaido to force Maduro to step down and call new elections, has warned bankers and traders not to deal in Venezuelan gold.
Venezuela sets new price controls, with basic items costing over a month’s wages. Socialism ALWAYS leads to dictatorship. Venezuela published a list of new price controls for 27 basic food items, fixing the price of eggs, some cuts of meat, and sausage above the monthly minimum wage President Maduro set for the country. The indoctrinated who want Socialism had better wake up; there will be a Socialist aka Communist dictatorship in the tribulation.
“Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, ‘Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages…'” (Revelation 6:6).
Trump calls for return to ‘the way it was’ as coronavirus crisis crashes economy. President Trump said the need for people to go back to work is so urgent that he wants to see a return soon to full-capacity restaurants, sports stadiums —and campaign rallies — with or without a vaccine. “We want it to be the way it was,” he said. “We can’t have somebody with half a restaurant. That’s not going to pay the rent.” Meanwhile, on Wednesday he received the support of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) for his promotion of an anti-malarial drug to treat the coronavirus. AAPS presented data obtained after a study of 2,333 coronavirus patients treated with the hydroxychloroquine drug. 91.6% of patients got better after being administered the drug.
41 States Have Reopened or Are Reopening Soon. Seven Demo-crat governors and two RINO (Republican in name only) governors are resisting calls to start relaxing their orders relating to businesses: Dem Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, Dem Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, Dem Delaware Gov. John Carney, , Dem Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, Dem California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Dem Washington Gov. Dem Jay Inslee, Dem New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, RINO Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, and RINO Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.
AG Barr says time to roll back strict lockdowns: ‘the Bill of Rights doesn’t go away during a crisis.’ Asked about the constitutionality of restrictions imposed by state and local governments, Barr said those local governments could impose “reasonable and temporary restrictions” but that “the Bill of Rights doesn’t go away during a crisis.”
30 Pics and Videos: US Reps Getting Mask Wearing Embarrassingly Wrong. All 30 ignored what they expect us to do. They removed masks to talk (putting spittle in the air), but Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez were the worst. Pelosi wiped her nose with her hand, and AOC waved her mask around.
Whistleblowing ER Docs Urge “Open Up Society Now” Because “Lockdowns Are Weakening Our Immune Systems.” They said COVID-19 came here earlier than previously believed, is more ubiquitous, and ultimately for the general population less deadly than we thought. While this is gradually dawning on people, they went public with their findings, not generated out of a predictive model but facts.
Michigan Judge Issues Unconstitutional Order Empowering Authorities to Arrest Anyone over COVID-19 Fears. Taking advantage of increased powers: Chief Circuit Judge Trusock issued a court order authorizing police to involuntarily detain anyone suspected to be a “carrier and health threat” to the community. The order is unconstitutional as it gives blanket authority to officials to arrest/detain any person without a court hearing or without evidence establishing probable cause.
Going too Far in New Jersey: High School Staffer rages insanely. As two teens tossed a football to one another at a New Jersey park, Steinert High School staffer Nicole Griggs yelled at them. She said, “I hope both of you get the coronavirus. I hope you both die a long, painful death.”
CNN ANCHOR CHRIS CUOMO DID WHAT?! Cuomo, in a video, told people to stay home, yet he and his family went out in public while under quarantine due to Cuomo having been diagnosed Mar 31 with coronavirus, and his wife on April 3. On April 12 they were seen walking on a trail (none had masks or gloves even). A bicyclist asked why he wasn’t in quarantine. Cuomo began yelling and said, “I can do what I want!” On April 20, Cuomo did a video showing himself emerging from quarantine, claiming he’d been at home in the Hamptons the whole time. He lied. On April 22, it was announced his 14-year-old son had coronavirus. Is Cuomo back in quarantine…for real this time?
Coronavirus spreads in a New York nursing home forced to take recovering patients. Gov. Andrew Cuomo and de Blasio apparently care nothing for senior citizens. Coronavirus patients began arriving the last week of March, transferred to the Gurwin Jewish Nursing and Rehabilitation Center under a New York state mandate requiring nursing homes to accept those recovering from COVID-19, even if they still might be contagious. At the time, the nursing home had only one known resident who’d contracted the virus. A month later, Gurwin is battling an outbreak that’s killed 24 residents (only three of whom were hospital transfers) and one staff member. And the nursing home is still mandated to take in recovering hospital patients known to have the virus, potentially increasing its spread.
And New York is not the only state forcing nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients. Playing Russian Roulette’: Nursing Homes Told to Take the Infected. California and New Jersey are also.
Appalling! Dozens of bodies found in U-Haul trucks outside NYC funeral home. After neighbors reported a foul odor, between 40-60 bodies were found unrefrigerated, stacked in U-Haul trucks outside Andrew Cleckley Funeral Services in Brooklyn, New York or inside on the building’s floor. One neighbor said he’d observed cadavers being stored in the trucks for several weeks during the pandemic.
In four U.S. state prisons, nearly 3,300 inmates test positive for coronavirus — 96% without symptoms in reports have come in from four state prison systems: Arkansas, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia. Tennessee said a majority of its positive cases didn’t show symptoms. In Michigan, state authorities said “a good number” of the 620 prisoners who tested positive for the coronavirus were asymptomatic.
CDC reviewing ‘stunning’ universal testing results from Boston homeless shelter. Of the 397 people tested, 146 people tested positive. Not a single one had symptoms.
Pennsylvania Takes Hundreds of ‘Probable’ COVID Deaths Off Books After Coroners Come Forward, pointing out that the state’s health department numbers did not match their own.
UN launches global push to accelerate production of virus vaccine. The event was co-hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron, European Commission chief von der Leyen and Melinda Gates of the Gates Foundation. It included UN chief Guterres as a speaker, as well as global leaders like Angela Merkel and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa. Trust any of this bunch? No way!
Trusting a Communist Government is like trusting Satan. Prominent university bio lab urged to reveal extent of relationship with Wuhan lab at center of coronavirus outbreak. The Galveston National Laboratory (GNL) boasted in a 2018 release about its work in directing operations of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, with the release reading: “In preparation for the opening of the new China MCL, we engaged in short- and long-term personnel exchanges focused on biosafety training, building operations and maintenance, and collaborative scientific investigations in biocontainment. We succeeded in transferring proven best practices to the new Wuhan facility.”
20-year-old video game that took place in a dystopian future that at the time seemed like pure science fiction, but now is looking disturbingly prophetic. The game, titled ‘Deus Ex,’ had a plot that centered around a man-made virus used to control the population and an international elite that used an empowered China alongside a crippled America to further their agenda, all while exploring themes of transhumanism, mass surveillance, and the destruction of local powers and individual freedom. Tech billionaire Elon Musk has changed his Twitter avatar to the box art of this 20-year-old video game.
Farmers Face Their Worst-Case Scenario: ‘Depopulating’ Chickens, Euthanizing Pigs and Dumping Milk due to meat processing plants closing and institutional milk buyers shutting down.
‘MAGA May Day’ Freedom Rallies Planned Across America to Protest Lockdowns were slated across America on May 1 to send a message to “local and state government tyrants” that it’s time to safely and responsibly reopen the country. The “drive-in” rallies encouraged participants to demand independence from China, not allowing the country to “control trade, supply chains, or anything else that affects the daily life, health, happiness of American citizens.” Organizers stressed that they are “NOT anti-quarantine” and said, “This virus is not a hoax. It is very real and we must protect the most vulnerable… however, America cannot destroy the lives and dreams of the majority to protect a few. The cure cannot be more dangerous than the disease.”
Riots in crisis-hit Lebanon reflect growing poverty, despair. Riots broke out in Lebanon’s second-largest city Tuesday, threatening to renew nationwide protests over growing poverty and further crippling of an economy already in freefall from the pandemic. Clashes in Tripoli erupted after a funeral for a man shot by soldiers during riots. Later in the week, saboteurs infiltrated the protest and sparked clashes; a grenade was thrown at a patrol and at least one bank was set ablaze. Some 30 people were injured, and one person died.
China’s Digital Currency to Be Given A Test Drive, and Chose 3 US Companies in China to Participate. It’s unclear how Starbucks, McDonald’s and Subway were chosen, but it was a local decision to include those local franchises. However, a Starbucks spokesperson supposedly told CNBC the company is “not participating in any digital currency trial in China.” McDonald’s and Subway were not immediately available for comment. The central government agency reportedly overseeing the project did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A growing number of voices are calling for the U.S. to issue a “digital dollar” as China continues to work its digital version.
The Past Two Weeks Have Wreaked Havoc in Many Countries; Some Even Longer:
In North America:

Saudi Arabia: Heavy rains trigger floods in Najran on April 27, dumped by a storm system that brought wet and windy conditions from Turkey to Saudi Arabia. Egypt and Iran were also affected. Inclement weather was forecast to continue in some areas until the end of the week.
Iran and Egypt: A gigantic sandstorm hit central Iran on April 26 with wind speed up to 130 km/h (81 mph), turning day into night. Prior to the sandstorm in Iran, high winds wreaked havoc across Egypt on April 24, as a major sandstorm forced closure of several ports and highways.
In Africa: Some 29 counties have been affected by severe weather, and forecasters warned that the situation may not improve soon. Here are just several examples:

Israel: Woman stabbed in suspected Memorial Day terror attack. 62-year-old woman sustained moderate to serious wounds after being stabbed by a “Palestinian” terrorist.
From Pamela Geller: Death toll of Ramadan 2020 – Updated daily. “For 30 days, I will report daily the terrorist attacks, crimes, butcheries of Ramadan Bombathon 2020. It has always amazed me to see that no mainstream media ever dared to report the killing that happens during this spiritual and holy month, when Muslims around the world are supposed to pray and meditate.”
Syria: Fuel truck bomb kills at least 46 people at an Afrin market. 50 others were wounded.
WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS
Seven killed in 2nd alleged Israeli airstrike in Syria in a week. The strike occurred early Monday morning. Initial reports claimed there were casualties and material damage south of Damascus.
Two alleged Israeli airstrikes in Syria on Thursday night and Friday targeted western and southern Syria, according to Syrian state news. Some reports say the targets belonged to Hezbollah.
US jets scramble to intercept Russian warplane after approaching aircraft carrier. It managed to get within 30km (18 miles) of the USS George Washington aircraft carrier without being detected.
Egypt army says 10 soldiers killed, injured in North Sinai blast. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack that occurred during the Islam’s holy month of Ramadan. For years, security forces have battled to contain fighting in North Sinai. An Egyptian policeman and seven suspected fighters were killed April 14 in an exchange of fire after the interior ministry received information about potential Easter attacks against Coptic Christians. Three other policemen were also wounded.
Robots Will Replace Soldiers in Combat, Says Russia. Russia plans to test swarms of ground robots later in 2020 that they say will be faster, more discriminating in target selection, and more accurate than people. The development parallels many such robotic programs underway in the US.
Kings of The East
China Claims it Scrambled Aircraft to ‘Expel’ U.S. Warship from South China Sea. The US denies the claim that it expelled the ship. China claims territory in the South China Sea that other nations dispute.
IN THE SKY
A New Comet
Comet C/2020 F8 (SWAN) rapidly brightening, now visible to naked eye. It was first spotted on April 11 during Passover week and the day before Easter aka Resurrection Sunday. The comet appears like a bright fuzz ball in the sky when observed with the human eye, but much more can be revealed even with small telescopes. “The tail on this is now at least 8 deg long! The best comet I’ve seen in some years,” said astrophotographer Damian Peach. For now, SWAN is only visible from the Southern Hemisphere, but soon it will become visible in mid-northern latitudes, including the U.S., Europe, and southern Canada. As the comet moves closer to the horizon, it will brighter further. Hopefully, it won’t disintegrate.
GLOBAL GOVERNMENT ON THE HORIZON
Globalists using coronavirus crisis as battering ram to destroy, then remake into their new world order. “Globalists have done everything possible, with full cooperation of their vicious allies in the fake news mainstream media, to try to convince the public that Trump is an evil, incompetent and corrupt man who has to be removed from the U.S. presidency. They need that to happen in order to carry on plans to permanently change America, destroy the capitalist system and replace it with a new globalist-controlled economy and radically changed world. Watch the video.“
ISRAEL ELECTION REFLECTION
Israel’s unity government may prove a constitutional time bomb. The deal involved changes to Basic Laws that may have been necessary in these political circumstances. But any country tinkers with longstanding constitutional arrangements at its own peril.
LAST DAYS BURDENSOME STONE
Jordan halts Israeli farmers’ access to their fields in border enclave. Jordan’s Foreign Ministry said Israeli farmers will no longer be allowed to work their fields in an enclave of southern Jordan, ending a more than 25-year arrangement meant to shore up a historic peace agreement. Jordan joined other Arab countries in condemning Netanyahu’s plan to annex parts of the West Bank, including Israeli settlements and the Jordan Valley. They say annexation would extinguish hope of a “Palestinian” state.
A group of 10 European ambassadors gave a formal protest to Israel and stressed that annexation of parts of Judea and Samaria would destabilize the region and harm Israel’s standing in the international community, The US, however, says “we are prepared to recognize Israeli actions to extend Israeli sovereignty and the application of Israeli law to areas of the West Bank that the vision foresees as being part of the State of Israel.” The US will ask Israel’s new unity government to negotiate with “Palestinian” Arabs. The US says application of sovereignty was ultimately “an Israeli decision.”
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” (Zechariah 12:2-3).
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
“…And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall utterly abolish. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth” (Isaiah 2:1-4, 17-19).
