The World Loves Darkness Rather than the LIGHT
EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS
Drought intensifies across High Plains, western and southern US. The Southwest (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah) and West (California, Nevada) climate regions both experienced their hottest and driest June-November period on record, according to NOAA NCEI.
Intense winter supercell over North Adriatic Sea with rare, historic tornado in Trieste, Italy. On Dec 7th, an intense supercell storm rolled across the North Adriatic Sea and produced a tornado that hit the Port of Trieste city, Italy. Severe weather with large hail and damaging winds blasted across the Slovenian coast, and also the city of Trieste itself. “A supercell and a tornado during a winter month? Well, keep in mind it is 2020. It seems nothing can surprise us anymore.”
Deadly Winter Storm Causes Floods, Avalanches in Europe. A weekend winter storm (last weekend) caused floods in Italy which killed one person, and several avalanches, killing another in the Swiss Alps. Another article reports around ten feet of snow fell in parts of the Alps.
Death toll climbs to 24, over 555,000 homes affected in southern Thailand’s worst floods in 50 years. The region has been lashed by heavy rains brought by the monsoon over the Gulf of Thailand since Nov 25.
Unusually large tornado hits Sakaka, Saudi Arabia, one of the largest ever documented in the country. The incredible tornado occurred in the middle of the desert and reached an uninhabited area on Dec 5. Interestingly, this occurred after Saudi Prince Turki bin Faisal harshly criticized Israel at the Bahrain Summit. He also called for a full Israeli withdrawal to 1949 armistice lines and a ‘Palestinian’ capital in Jerusalem.
Historic hailstorm hits Beirut, Lebanon. A massive hailstorm accompanied by exceptionally heavy rain and drastic temperature drop hit Beirut on Dec 5, causing massive floods and traffic chaos. The last time Beirut witnessed a similar event was back in 1968.
GREAT EARTHQUAKES IN DIVERSE PLACES
A strong 6.2 earthquake struck off the coast of Taiwan on Thursday, causing buildings to shake violently in Taipei but with no immediate reports of damage or injury.
A strong 6.0 hit south of the Kermadec Islands, New Zealand on December 6. There are no people living within 100 km (62 miles).
Alert level for dangerous Pelée volcano raised to Yellow in Martinique due to signs of reactivation. “We noted an increase in earthquakes at the level of the volcanic edifice,” said the director of the Martinique Volcanological and Seismological Observatory (OVSM). The last eruption of Mount Pelée took place in 1902, destroying the town of Saint-Pierre and killing nearly 30,000.
APOSTASY; DOCTRINES OF DEMONS
Mexico’s senior Catholic leader backs civil unions for gay couples. The Mexican Catholic Church’s highest-ranking bishop agrees with recent comments by Pope Francis in support of legal protections offered by civil unions for gay couples. “All of us are children of god, all are members of the family, and if we’re fighting so that families are united, regardless of their conduct, they don’t stop being our children. And that’s what Pope Francis said, everyone has the right to family,” said Aguiar.
The pope is promoting a lie. The truth is, we are all created by God, but we are not all children of God. Only those who are born-again in Christ are “children of God.” Those who consistently engage in and enjoy sin show that they were never born again. Those who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and have become children of God will show evidence of their adoption by way of a transformed mind and life (Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 John 3:9; 4:7; 5:1, 4, 18).
LAST DAYS OF LOT RETURNED
Schumer supporting Biden plan to create open showers in public schools. Obama issued an executive order just before leaving office forcing schools receiving federal funding to let boys who “identify” as girls use girls’ bathrooms and showers. President Trump immediately reversed the order. But, now, Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says he supports Biden’s vow to restore Obama’s order on his first day in office. During a townhall in October, Biden promised a mother he would “flat-out just change the law” to accommodate young children who want to “change their gender.”
RITZ Crackers Redefines Family as Two Men, One Wears Makeup. RITZ Crackers is attempting to normalize the transgender lifestyle by airing a commercial that has absolutely nothing to do with selling crackers. The company’s most recent ad features a man putting on lipstick like a woman and effeminately clinging to another man, to brainwash children and adults alike by desensitizing audiences.
The ad campaign titled “Where’s there’s love, there’s family” has been airing on HGTV and is featured on RITZ’s YouTube page. The company’s goal is to redefine family as something other than God’s biblical design for gender and sexuality. In its own words, RITZ says, “We’re encouraging people to rethink what it means to be family.”
Protesters Condemn Radical New Jersey Abortion Bill Backed by Gov. Phil Murphy that would allow abortion for any reason throughout all nine months of pregnancy, repeal all existing restrictions on abortion, and force taxpayers to fully fund the procedure.
PLAGUE, PESTILENCE AND THE PLANNED-DEMIC
Invasion of the Body Snatchers: Psychological Warfare Disguised as a Pandemic Threat. Summary: This is how you persuade a populace to voluntarily march in lockstep with a police state and police themselves (and each other): by ratcheting up the fear-factor, meted out one carefully calibrated crisis at a time… The government’s scripted response to the pandemic has been predictably consistent: insisting it needs even greater surveillance powers. Today, we’re watched and tracked 24/7; data is collected on us at an alarming rate; American domestic intelligence agencies sweep our websites, listen in on our telephone calls and read our text messages. Now with the COVID pandemic and its offshoots such as contact tracing and immunity passports, the governmental landscape is even more invasive.
Yet no matter the threat, the underlying principle remains the same: can we hold onto our basic freedoms and avoid succumbing to the soul-sucking dredge of conformity that threatens our very humanity?
Media Scare-Stories About Covid-Driven Hospitalizations Are Misleading. You can’t turn on your TV, flip open your tablet, or scroll your social media feed today without being bombarded by horrifying stories of overworked nurses and doctors and throat-grabbing headlines about COVID-driven hospitalizations. While it’s disappointing to see we are back in the “media scare stories about hospitals,” the good news is that, just like last time, this is simply not the case. They either have no idea what they are saying or are seeking to mislead.
‘Project Runway’ Contestant (episode aired April 4, 2019) Named Kovid Made Outfit with Matching Face Mask. The episode aired several months before the plandemic. One of the judges called it “sick.” Interesting…
White House Chief of Staff orders FDA head to approve Pfizer vax by Friday or resign. The White House declined to comment, although an administration official said Meadows does request regular updates on the progress toward a vaccine. US Dept of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, which oversees the FDA, said regulatory authorization should come within days and the federal government would work with the company to get the vaccine shipped out.
Experts Baffled by Mystery Illness in India that has left over 500 people hospitalized and one person dead in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The illness was first detected last Saturday. People started convulsing without any warning. Since then, symptoms ranging from nausea and anxiety to loss of consciousness have been reported in 546 patients admitted to hospitals. Many have recovered and returned home, while 148 are still being treated.
INIQUITY (LAWLESSNESS, WICKEDNESS) SHALL ABOUND
Police shot in line of duty hits record high, stats show. “Attacks on law enforcement officers continue at a disturbing pace,” the post stated. “Violence against our officers MUST be condemned by all…Enough Is Enough.”
Antifa Has Armed Guards, Stockpiled Weapons at Portland Autonomous Zone. The antifa occupiers at the autonomous zone that sprung up in Portland this week appear to be preparing for a siege. Antifa squatters took over a house in Portland, and when the government rightly evicted them, they set up an autonomous zone. Portland’s police chief reported that antifa has fortified barricades, stockpiled weapons, set up armed guards, and threatened to kill police officers. Both the police chief and the mayor have urged the rebels to lay down their arms, but it appears they are refusing to do so.
EXPOSING LAST DAYS TRAITORS
Students at Cornell University can use their status as a “person of color” to be exempt from the university’s flu vaccine mandatory requirement. White students are not given that option.
Chicago Teachers Union Tweets Reopening Schools Would Be “Racist, Sexist, And Misogynistic”…And Then Deletes It! The union offered no explanation, evidence, or any other factual support for its claim, probably figuring that including the three magic words would do the trick on their own. But people aren’t buying their bull hooey. They couldn’t even scrub the Marxism out of their climb-down. Perhaps keeping Chicago’s public schools closed until the teachers union is dissolved is the wise way to go.
Colin Kaepernick Honored by Ben & Jerry’s with an Ice Cream Flavor. What hypocrites! The company said it created the flavor to celebrate ‘Kaepernick’s courageous work to confront systemic oppression and to stop police violence against Black and Brown people.’ But guess what? While proclaiming the sentiments which earned him Ben & Jerry’s (and universal “Woke”) acclaim, Kaepernick wore a T-shirt showing Fidel Castro – a Stalinist dictator who jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin himself during the Great Terror. Castro’s KGB-trained police and death squads murdered more Cubans in his first three years in power than Hitler murdered Germans during his first six. Fidel Castro was the jailer and torturer of the longest suffering black political prisoners in the modern history of the Western hemisphere.
Felon Enfranchisement, National Election Overhaul Top Priority Bill if Dems Retake Senate. It would also take a number of dramatic and controversial steps, including extending voting rights to millions of currently disenfranchised felons and overhauling the Federal Election Commission to ensure partisan control. Democrats have framed those changes and others as necessary to democracy, but they would also likely give the party a leg up in future elections.
Criminalization of private speech coming to U.S. Jonathan Turley, a prominent liberal lawyer who has been involved in some of America’s highest-profile constitutional disputes, is warning of an alarming rollback of free speech in Western nations.
THEY FIRST TOOK CONTROL OF THE MEDIA. The Nazis and Communists first took over the media, paths to communication, the means to distribute propaganda. Propaganda to massage the message of those in power who seized the media. It is manifested in one voice: the mainstream being on the same page.
This New Technology Will Dangerously Expand Government Spying on Citizens. To quote from the article in the Wall St. Journal, the smartphone is used “as a window onto usage of hundreds of millions of computers, routers, fitness trackers, modern automobiles and other networked devices, known collectively as the Internet of Things.” Your smartphone in effect becomes a government listening device that detects and accesses all nearby wireless or bluetooth devices, or anything that has a MAC address for that matter.
Univ. of Washington abandoned student in Chinese ‘re-education camp.’ U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused the University of Washington of refusing to help free its student, who was in a Chinese re-education camp in 2017 and was held captive for nearly two years. The university chose not to act to avoid jeopardizing a multi-million-dollar deal with China at the time.
Pompeo warned that U.S. campuses are “rife with anti-Americanism, and present easy targets for [Chinese] anti-American messaging. That’s why they planted Confucius Institutes on our campuses. And under President Trump, our State Department has made very clear these Confucius Institutes are literally up to no good. Many have gone away. Many campuses have seen that and they’ve chosen to close down these institutes. But right here in Georgia, Wesleyan College still has one in Macon.”
HATRED OF JEWS AND ISRAEL AKA HATRED OF GOD
HATRED OF CHRISTIANITY AKA HATRED OF GOD
The Reason Politicians Are Trying to Cancel Christmas. Tucker Carlson argued that Christmas is seen as something “bigger” than politics and elected figures. For that reason, there seems to be an effort underway to cancel it. “All of the focus on the big, enduring things: the focus on our families, the focus on what’s true and what’s not true. The focus on eternity itself, all of that tends to diminish the power of the people in charge of our temporal world, for obvious reasons. We take our leaders less seriously when we’re reminded that they’re just people; slightly ludicrous, just like we are. When we’re reminded that they too will pass…”
US airstrikes kill 8 terrorist bombmakers in Somalia linked to Al-Qaeda. U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Kirk Smith, deputy commander for AFRICOM, said, “Al-Shabaab’s continuous attacks demonstrate its willingness to accept high numbers of civilian casualties while advancing operations aimed at undermining security across Somalia. The removal of terrorists involved in the making of explosives helps disrupt al-Shabaab’s ability to conduct attacks of this nature and reduces the group’s ability to target Somali civilians, security forces, government officials, as well as U.S. and Western interests in the country.”
WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS
Ezekiel 38-39 News:
Russia Calls Israel ‘the Problem’ in the Middle East, Defends Iran and Its Allies. In a noteworthy interview with an Israeli newspaper on Tuesday, Russia accused Israel of being responsible for the unrest in the Middle East, while relieving Iran and its allies of blame.
Russia to establish navy base in Sudan for at least 25 years, part of Moscow’s efforts to expand its global reach. The deal allows Russia to simultaneously keep up to four navy ships, including nuclear-powered ones, in Port Sudan on the Red Sea. Bible prophecy experts say Sudan will be part of the last days invasion of Israel.
Aliens Convinced Trump to Keep Them Secret, Claims Ex-Israeli Space Head. 87-year-old Haim Eshed, former head of the Defense Ministry’s Space Division for over 3 decades, told Yediot Aharonot that aliens have been secretly interacting with the US and Israeli government “for years.” He went on to claim that Trump, at one point, wanted to expose their existence to the world. Eshed says, “The UFOs have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet.
The only extraterrestrials out there are angels and demons. And it’s the demons who want to convince the gullible who don’t read or understand the Bible. It could very well be a lie told to explain the rapture to the left behind.
“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God” (John 3:17-21).
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:6).
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee” (Titus 2:11-15).
May those of us who have the light of Christ continue to watch and warn and spread the good news of the Gospel while we still can.
