FINISHING THE RACE
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:1-2).
Brethren, I feel strongly, as do many others, that we’re in the “home stretch,” so to speak, that this is the last call before the church age ends and we’re taken up to escape the coming wrath. We don’t expect the news to be good for the most part, given the lateness of the hour, but reading through so much of it daily is having a negative effect on me. So, I will be highlighting areas of concern rather than going into detail of all the who, what and where. Hang in there, brethren; keep spreading the gospel of Christ while we still can, and praying for those who are lost and hurting.

PLAGUES AND PLANDEMICS
US Divorce Rates, Depression Soar Amid COVID-19 Plandemic. It’s not just loss of jobs, end of school for children or nonstop panic the mainstream is stirring up in an effort to knock out President Trump. The COVID-19 panic is having even more profound effects on the American society.
COVID test/scam, overwhelming number of false positives. According to The New York Times, potentially 90% of those who’ve tested positive for COVID-19 have such insignificant amounts of the virus in their bodies that they don’t need to isolate nor are they candidates for contact tracing. Leading public health experts are now concerned that overtesting is responsible for misdiagnosing a huge number of people with harmless amounts of the virus in their systems.
New polio outbreak in Sudan caused by oral vaccine. The World Health Organization says a new polio outbreak in Sudan is linked to an ongoing vaccine-sparked epidemic in Chad. Two children in Sudan were paralyzed in March and April. Both had been recently vaccinated against polio.
The insanity continues with BLM and Antifa. These are Marxist and anarchist organizations bought and paid for to take down the only nation standing in the way of the totalitarian communist government that the Left wants to put in place.
Negating American history – BLM/Antifa embody ISIS on U.S. soil. It wasn’t that long ago that ISIS swept across Syria and Iraq, bulldozing historical shrines in an effort to eradicate the past. The purpose was to replace history with its own version that would legitimize its claim to govern and control the social order. Radical Islam is built on precisely this kind of senseless anger as is the amoral anarchy of Marxism we see roving our streets. It’s called justice by the mobs but it isn’t justifiable. It is the manifestation of what God described in the Book of Judges where “every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” Read the rest of the article at the above link.
Antifa Serves the Leftist Elite. Liberal elites tolerate Antifa violence because these black-masked thugs do their dirty work for them.

APOSTASY AND DOCTRINES OF DEMONS
A Great Falling Away – 30 Percent Of Evangelicals Don’t Believe Jesus Is God. Even though the Bible and traditional teachings of the Christian Church hold that Jesus truly existed as both man and God, among the key findings of the biennial State of Theology survey from Ligonier Ministries conducted with LifeWay Research, is that 52% of American adults believe that Jesus was a great teacher and nothing more.
Pope Francis is again hawking the bogus global warming agenda (aka ruse for global government). He hailed the indigenous communities that “live in harmony with the land and its multiple forms of life” (aka Mother Earth worship). He says creation is groaning because humans are destroying it. Not true. It’s groaning under the weight of all the sin in the world. (See Romans 8:18-23).
UFO Spotting Has Replaced Bird Watching as Pandemic Obsession. In the wake of the coronavirus, sports stadiums have fallen silent, shopping malls have been turned into ghost towns, and bars have emptied. But the skies—depending who you ask—have gotten a lot busier. Allegedly, sightings are rising and 2020 is shaping up to be a banner year for close encounters

‘PEACE’ WITH MANY
Saudi Arabia to open its airspace to Israel in nod to Middle East peace.

Bahrain will also allow flights between Israel and the UAE to use its air space.
Egypt’s Sisi: UAE-Israel deal ‘step to Mideast peace’.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
