Common Sense :: By Daymond Duck

The state of Arkansas has almost 3.2 million licensed drivers, but only 516 licensed drivers have opted to list their gender as “X” (transgender, non-binary, intersex) on their license.

On Mar. 12, 2024, Arkansas stopped putting gender “X” on driver’s licenses, and the ban will become law if it is approved by the legislature. Arkansas’ governor, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, defended the ban, saying she will not endorse nonsense. Huckabee said, “This policy is just common sense. Only women give birth, men shouldn’t play women’s sports, and there are only two genders.”

I personally do not think Sanders is anti-gay. Sanders is a Christian. Christians believe they should love everyone. They believe they should try to rightly understand what the Bible says and accept it as God’s will for their life. They believe everyone sins, Christians should first try to give up their own sins, and they should urge everyone else to give up their sins.

Some believe the Bible teaches that God is especially grieved by the gender (and gay) issue because He has pronounced warnings of judgment on those involved in that sin, and they think telling people what God said is an act of love, not hate.

The gender (and gay) issue is a big issue today because it is part of the globalist agenda. The U.S. is no longer a Christian nation, and many world leaders (and some in the Church) are pushing it (calling good evil and evil good, days of Lot, etc.).

Here are some recent reports that appear to relate to Bible prophecy.

One, concerning tracking all buying and selling: on Mar. 12, 2024 it was reported that the pres. of the World Bank is urging governments all over the world to embrace a global digital ID. A digital ID is a prerequisite to tracking what people buy and sell.

(More: On Mar. 14, 2024, it was reported that the U.S. is lagging far behind China, India, Japan, the EU, Brazil, Russia, and more than 100 other countries in its development of a digital currency.)

Two, concerning world government and the coming Tribulation Period: on Mar. 14, 2024, Catholic Archbishop Vigano said,

  • The pressure for the approval of the WHO Pandemic Treaty and for the health passport – accompanied by the activation of the digital wallet – demonstrate that the authors of this coup have no intention of giving up their criminal intentions and will not do so unless they are faced with firm and determined opposition from the population and those few of its representatives who are not sold out to the World Economic Forum, by those who courageously do not fail in their duties.
  • The children of darkness, the conspirators of the World Economic Forum, and the globalist cabal want to establish the kingdom of the Antichrist on Earth, as an obscene counterfeit of the Kingdom of Christ Our Lord.

Here is a link to his message.

Three, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog and financial support for Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis, etc.: on Mar. 13, 2024, Pres. Biden renewed a sanctions waiver that released more than $10 billion in frozen assets to Iran.

Iranian proxies are attacking U.S. forces in Iraq, the Red Sea, etc.; they are attacking Israel near Lebanon, in Jerusalem, in the West Bank, in Gaza, and Biden has granted them access to billions of dollars.

(More: On Mar. 11, 2024, Israel’s Defense Min. said Iran is smuggling weapons and other military resources to terrorists in the West Bank, Judea and Samaria.)

(More: On Mar. 12, 2024, Israeli police said they have foiled 12 major terrorist attacks in Jerusalem since the beginning of 2024, and Iran is financing a lot of this.)

(More: On Mar. 19, 2024, a reader sent me a link to an article that said, “Various media outlets in the region, in particular, Syrian State media run by Bashar al-Assad and also Israel’s Channel 11 broadcaster, report that Russian forces are moving closer to the Israel-Syria border.” Note: It is my opinion that this could be a very big deal, but we just don’t know. What we do know is that God will drag Russia, Iran, Turkey, and others to Israel’s border and destroy them in the latter years and latter days. So, this COULD be a sign that the Rapture is close.)

Here is a link.

Four, concerning the effort of Pres. Biden and Sen. Schumer to undermine Prime Min. Netanyahu’s government: on Mar. 12, 2024, an Israeli official said, “We expect our friends to act to overthrow the terror regime of Hamas and not the elected government in Israel.”

In many ways, the U.S. is not acting like a friend of Israel.

Five, concerning deceit and the mistreatment of hostages: on Mar. 14, 2024, an Israeli hostage that was released by Hamas after 54 days of captivity said, “They (Hamas) told us that they (our people) don’t want us in Israel, that the families don’t want us and that we won’t be back even in another year.”

Six, concerning corruption in the courts, Congressman Jim Jordan has warned District Attorney Fani Willis that she must give subpoenaed documents related to her efforts to indict former Pres. Trump and her possible collusion with the Biden administration to the House Judiciary Committee by noon on Mar. 28, 2024, or she could face contempt of Congress proceedings.

(More: The judge in Florida that is overseeing the accusations against Trump for mishandling classified documents asked the prosecution why they are prosecuting Trump for this when no other President has ever been prosecuted for it. Trump is alleging a double standard in the courts, especially now that charges against Pres. Biden have been dismissed by the Special Prosecutor.)

(More: On Mar. 15, 2024, the judge in Georgia ruled that Fani Willis can remain on the bench in the case against Pres. Trump for mishandling classified documents, but only if the lead prosecutor steps down because of a significant appearance of impropriety between the judge and the lead prosecutor. The judge said the only other option is for Willis to step down.)

(More: The lead prosecutor in this case immediately resigned.)

Seven, concerning the ashes of a Red Heifer: this week, I saw a second report that the Jews must select and sacrifice one of the four unblemished red heifers before they are too old.

I personally do not know if this is true, but if it is, time could be running out.

Eight, concerning some of the prophesied wars (Isa. 17; Ezek. 38-39; perhaps Psa. 83, etc.): on Mar. 16, 2024, the head of Israel’s military, Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi, said, “We are in a multi-front war – Lebanon, Syria, Judea and Samaria [West Bank] and Gaza and threats even further away.”

It truly looks like these prophesied wars are shaping up.

Nine, concerning the use of the climate change hoax to establish world government: on Mar. 18, 2024, the CEO of the world’s largest oil producer (Aramco in Saudi Arabia) said,

  • The energy transition envisioned by the ‘global warming’ crowd is failing.
  • Policymakers should abandon the ‘fantasy’ of phasing out oil and gas because demand for fossil fuels is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.

(My opinion: He is probably right, but the globalists are not going to abandon their goal of establishing a world government by 2030 or sooner if possible.)

Ten, concerning signs in the sun, moon, and stars before the Second Coming, several people have asked me if the coming Apr. 8, 2024, total solar eclipse is a warning from God that His judgment will soon fall on the U.S.

Understand that there are several unusual things associated with the eclipse, but I am reluctant to say yes or no.

As I understand the Bible:

  • God often warns nations that His judgment will fall if they do not repent.
  • God often gives nations several warnings before His judgment falls.
  • In some instances, God’s judgment falls immediately, but in other cases, there is a delay before His judgment falls.

The bottom line is that we always need to repent of our sins and have our hearts right with God through Jesus.

(Reminder: Readers know that I have been saying for a long time that the judgment of God may already be falling on America.)

Eleven, concerning the decline of America: on Mar. 18, 2024, it was reported that former Auburn football coach and now U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (a Republican) went to Utah to campaign for Trent Staggs to replace retiring Senator Mitt Romney, and Tuberville said:

  • There’s not one Democrat that can tell you they stand up for God.
  • They’ve basically taken God out of everything that we’re doing.
  • We have to get back to our moral values.

(My opinion: I believe America will fall if it doesn’t come back to God, but the mess America is in can be blamed on both parties, and without God, we have no hope. America is on the brink of losing its sovereignty, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and more – at the World Health Organization meeting in late May – and only a few Republicans or Democrats are speaking out.)

Here is my daily update on the Israel-Hamas war.

Thursday, Mar. 14, 2024 (Day 160): The one hundred-fiftieth day of the resumed war.

  • Chuck Schumer called for new elections in Israel to replace Netanyahu. Many Democrats, including Pres. Biden, want to force a peace treaty and the Two-State solution on Israel, but Netanyahu is not cooperating.
  • Biden expressed support for Sen. Chuck Schumer.
  • The U.S. is becoming Israel’s greatest obstacle to the defeat of Hamas.
  • Polls show that Netanyahu would win a new election in Israel by a wide margin.
  • A Muslim terrorist stabbed 2 Jews in southern Israel (one is in critical condition).
  • Israel is preparing to build factories to produce more of its military needs due to rising tensions with the U.S. over the Gaza war and a need to become less dependent upon America.
  • Netanyahu called Hamas’ latest hostage offer absurd and approved the plan to begin operations in Rafah.
  • The Houthis now have hypersonic missiles.

Friday, Mar. 15, 2024 (Day 161): The one hundred-fifty-first day of the resumed war.

  • Israel has deployed thousands of police in Jerusalem and near the Temple Mount.
  • Two hostages that have been released were held in Rafah, and Israel believes more hostages are being held there.
  • Israel told Egypt it plans to move large weapons close to Rafah to conduct pinpoint hostage rescue efforts before it launches an all-out effort to destroy Hamas there.

Saturday, Mar. 16, 2024 (Day 162): The one hundred-fifty-second day of the resumed war.

  • Hamas leaders met with Houthi leaders to coordinate their war with Israel.
  • Israel discovered a 200-meter-long tunnel (with grenades, RPG missiles, explosives, rocket launchers, combat vests, and cameras) near a residential area and destroyed it.

Sunday, Mar. 17, 2024 (Day 163): The one hundred-fifty-third day of the resumed war.

  • Ceasefire talks are expected to resume in Egypt today.
  • An Israeli legal advisor told the Knesset that Israel can refuse to allow the UNRWA to operate in Gaza.

Monday, Mar. 18, 2024 (Day 164): The one hundred-fifty-fourth day of the resumed war.

  • Israel said Hamas terrorists regrouped at the UNRWA Al-Shifa Hospital compound and fired on Israeli troops. Israel attacked the compound. At least 20 Hamas terrorists, a Hamas commander, and an Israeli soldier died during the raid. Many weapons were captured. 20 more terrorists were killed nearby. (Note: The UN, UNRWA, and others often deny that Hamas terrorists are in the hospitals.)
  • Concerning Sen. Chuck Schumer’s effort to undermine Prime Min. Netanyahu by calling for a new election in Israel, Netanyahu said, “It’s inappropriate to go to a sister democracy and try to replace the elected leadership there. That’s something that Israel, the Israeli public, does on its own, and we’re not a banana republic.”
  • Israel will offer a 6-week ceasefire in exchange for 40 hostages. Israel could also agree to release 400 Palestinian prisoners (Hamas wants 1,000) held in Israel in exchange for 40 female, elderly, and wounded hostages.
  • Netanyahu said defeating Hamas will deliver a stinging blow to the Iranian terrorist axis.

Tuesday, Mar. 19, 2024 (Day 165): The one hundred-fifty-fifth day of the resumed war.

  • In the last 2 days, Israel has killed about 50 terrorists and arrested about 300 others at the UNRWA Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza. Many high-ranking and mid-level terrorists have been killed or captured. 2 Israeli soldiers were killed in the operation.

FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
