The Death of Truth :: By Daymond Duck

When asked about the signs of His coming and the end of the age, Jesus mentioned deceit four times in Matt. 24 (vs. 4, 5, 11, and 24).

In an article titled “Truth Has Become a Casualty in Modern Journalism,” Pastor Mike Spaulding (author, speaker, radio host) wrote on Apr. 27, 2024:

  • We should all be mourning the death of truth, but alas, few recognize what has happened to truth as a tool to strengthen nations and guard against ruinous corruption.
  • The murder of truth was intentionally committed by individuals and organizations who cannot accomplish their goals through rational, logical, and reasonable public debate. The world is in the grips of mass propaganda, deceit, and an otherworldly strong delusion.
  • Murdering truth results in people being dislodged from any form of objective morality. A morality that celebrates murder, rape, and acts of torture (as has happened regarding the Oct.7, 2023 Hamas attack on Israel) is not morality. It is a subjective blood lust, which can only be attributed to wicked delusion and the resultant unhinged evil.

It reminds me of something God said in Old Testament times about the prophets in Judah:

  • “In the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen the hands of the evil doers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah” (Jer. 23:14).

God saw something that He said is horrible: People that have abandoned me, and they are walking in lies.

This ungodliness and deceit are encouraging wicked people, and there is no repentance.

The first sin of humanity occurred when Satan deceived Adam and Eve (Gen.3).

Jesus would later call the corrupt religious leaders of His day the children of Satan.

He called Satan a murderer and a liar from the beginning (Jn. 8:43-44).

God is not fooled by the death of truth today.

Concerning the end of the age, God said,

  • “The Antichrist will come after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (II Thess. 2:9-12).

The death of truth will ultimately lead to the rise of the Antichrist and the betrayal of Israel, and it will cost multitudes their souls.

Here are some recent events that seem to indicate that we are close to the end of the age.

One, on May 3, 2024, Just The News reported:

  • In a stunning admission, Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team is admitting that key evidence in former President Donald Trump’s classified documents criminal case was altered or manipulated since it was seized by the FBI, and that prosecutors misled the court about it for a period of time.

How this will impact the case remains to be seen, but government officials altering evidence and deceiving the court clearly signifies the death of truth.

It is truly amazing that they admitted it.

(More: on May 7, 2024, it was reported that the U.S. House of Representatives has launched an investigation into these “serious ethical lapses” and gave Smith until 5:pm on May 20, 2024, to produce documents and respond.)

Two, six states have filed lawsuits against Pres. Biden’s recently released Executive Order that will let boys in girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms, let males compete against females in sports, etc., simply by saying they identify as female.

The fact that people at the highest levels of government choose to ignore the fact that there are biological differences between males and females signifies the death of truth.

Thank God for those officials who know that males and females are different and are still willing to fight for the truth.

Three, on May 4, 2024, the great Hal Lindsey wrote:

  • The world is staggering under the weight of billions of bad decisions — bad decisions by regular citizens and by the world’s leaders. Of those choices, one stands out as particularly dangerous — the decision to blame Jews for humanity’s problems. We have seen where this decision leads (In Germany, it led to Hitler’s decision to annihilate the Jews).

The decision of world leaders to blame Israel for all the problems in the Middle East signifies the death of truth.

Hal asked, “How far will it go?” and he replied:

  • The Bible teaches that hatred of Jews will be a feature of the last days. I had hoped it would be a post-rapture phenomenon — that the Church would be morally strong enough to hold back this evil as long as the Church stays on earth. It still could. The next few days and weeks will tell quite the story.

(My opinion: This will lead to a horrible thing: a satanic world government that will “walk in lies” and try to destroy Israel at the Battle of Armageddon.)

Four, concerning world government, the International Pandemic Treaty (Accords), and the International Health Regulations (IHRs): on May 1, 2024, 49 U.S. Senators (all Republicans) sent a letter to Pres. Biden that said:

  • The most recently available version of the pandemic response treaty is dead on arrival.
  • The amendments to the existing International Health Regulations are not in order. (The nations have not been given the required 4 months’ notice of changes to the regulations before they vote at the end of this month. Why would they want nations to vote on a document they have not seen? It is called deceit and could be called the death of truth).

Pres. Biden has now been officially notified that every Republican U.S. Senator opposes these two globalist documents that will surrender a lot of U.S. sovereignty to an unelected group of foreigners.

Five, a poll that was conducted by the American Press Institute and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research (released on May 1, 2024) found that over half of Americans (53 percent) are extremely or very concerned about news organizations reporting inaccurate information during the election.

Six, on May 4, it was reported that Biden’s handlers intend to shorten his speeches to give quality of words over quantity of words.

His critics charge that they are shortening his speeches to reduce the chances of cognitive failure.

This is about the president of the U.S. So, what is the truth?

(More: On May 6, 2024, Wayne Allen Root (author, TV host, political commentator) warned former Pres. Trump that he needs to prepare to run against Michelle Obama in the next presidential election. We will soon know.)

Seven, on May 5, 2024, from a command and control center inside a UN hospital in Gaza, Hamas attacked a group of Israeli troops, killed 3 and injured 11.

Israeli jets struck the command and control center, and it is no longer operational.

UN denials that terrorists are using UN hospitals are false.

Eight, concerning deceit: on May 1, 2024, it was reported that the World Economic Forum (WEF) is proclaiming that the greatest peril humanity now faces is misinformation and disinformation (deceit).

(My opinion: Many people do not trust the WEF because its leaders are trying to deceive the public (censor the truth) about its efforts to establish a world government.)

Nine, concerning the tracking of all buying and selling (Mark of the Beast) and the globalist effort to get people to eat less beef, eat locusts, worms, etc.: on May 3, 2024, it was reported that the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced that it is requiring all cattle and bison to have Electronic Identification Tags (EIDs) that store information about the animal (vaccination schedules, feed routines, medical history, etc.).

Some farmers are concerned that government officials will be able to track everything that they have done with their animals, and if the farmer hasn’t done what the government wants, they will not be allowed to sell their animals.

(My comment: If they can track the buying and selling of cattle, they will soon be able to track the buying and selling of everything.)

(More: On May 8, 2024, Clayton Morris – former Fox News Host; Morris Investment Co. – said he has received an announcement that Master Card, Wells Fargo, Citi Group, and the Central Banks are now going to roll out their own digital currency pilot program. Personal Note: This doesn’t appear to be a global digital currency yet, but a global digital currency is a prerequisite to tracking all buying and selling.)

Ten, concerning wars and rumors of wars: on Apr. 30, 2024, it was reported that Hezbollah in Lebanon has fired projectiles into northern Israel almost every day for about 7 months (since Oct. 7, 2023), and tens of thousands of Israelis have had to vacate their homes and live in temporary shelters.

Israel’s Foreign Minister told his French counterpart, who was trying to de-escalate the situation:

  • The situation is untenable.
  • We are not going back to October 6th.
  • If Hezbollah does not withdraw (from the border region), we are heading to an all-out war. If that happens, Israel will act against Hezbollah in all of Lebanon and occupy a large area in southern Lebanon to create a security buffer zone, which will be controlled by the IDF and allow the residents of the north to return home safely.

If the international community wants to prevent another war, they need to force Hezbollah back to the agreed-upon line (the north bank of the Litani River) now.

(More: On May 5, 2024, Hezbollah in Lebanon fired more than 100 rockets and missiles at homes in northern Israel. Three Israelis were injured; many houses, buildings, and vehicles were damaged; roads were damaged, and some houses were without electricity for several hours.)

Eleven, concerning U.S. efforts to force Israel to end its war with Hamas: on May 2, 2024, it was reported that:

  • A Hamas representative in Lebanon said Hamas was planning to reject the latest ceasefire deal.
  • Iran and its proxies were helping Hamas prepare to defend against an Israeli attack on Rafah.
  • Iran and its proxies are growing stronger as the war drags on.

If there is any truth to this, U.S. restraints on Israel have probably prolonged the war, and that will likely make the death and destruction worse when the war resumes.

Twelve, concerning the Two-State Solution: on May 3, 2024, it was reported that this week, former President Donald Trump said:

  • That he no longer supports a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians following the October 7 massacre.

Earlier this year, Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu said:

  • I am very consistent, and I’m saying something very simple; this conflict is not on the lack of a state of Palestine, but the existence of a state, the Jewish State.
  • In the future, the state of Israel has to control the entire area from the river to the sea.
  • This truth I say to our American friends, and I also stopped the attempt to impose on us a reality that will jeopardize us.

(My opinion: Our current president – or whoever is running the U.S. – is making a mistake by pushing the Two-State Solution. But regardless of Trump’s, Netanyahu’s, and God’s warnings in the Bible, Israel will be divided, the Jews in Judea will have to flee the Promised Land at the middle of the Tribulation Period, and God will send the Battle of Armageddon for scattering the Jews and dividing His land; Matt. 24:15-22; Rev. 19:11-21.)

Thirteen, concerning the decline of America: on May 2, 2024, it was reported that:

  • The U.S. has run out of Patriot missile batteries to send to Ukraine.
  • The U.S. is begging EU nations to send their air defense weapons to Ukraine.
  • The Pentagon has pledged a $6 billion package of weapons to Ukraine, but U.S. stockpiles are depleted, and the weapons cannot be sent until the U.S. signs contracts with suppliers and more are produced.

Fourteen, concerning the spreading hatred of Israel: on May 4, 2024, prophecy teacher Amir Tsarfati wrote that Christians need to recognize that the side effect of the hatred of Israel will eventually turn into hatred for those who support the nation of Israel.

According to Tsarfati, the current antisemitism will eventually migrate into a hatred of those who love the Jews and the King of the Jews, Jesus.

The spirit of antisemitism will spread the spirit of antichrist.

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

Wednesday, May 1, 2024 (Day 208): The one hundred-fifty-third day of the resumed war.

  • Turkey said it would officially join South Africa’s lawsuit at the International Criminal Court (ICC) that accuses Israel of committing genocide against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
  • Netanyahu said he was undeterred by potential arrest warrants by the ICC, and he is willing to sacrifice himself for Israel.
  • Israel informed the U.S. that it has information that the Palestinian Authority (PA) is pressuring the ICC to issue arrest warrants for Israeli officials and that if the ICC does issue warrants, Israel will retaliate against the PA.
  • A former Israeli national security advisor said the U.S. is on Hamas’ side, and there will be no progress in the ceasefire negotiations because Sinwar knows it.

Thursday, May 2, 2024 (Day 210): The one hundred-fifty-fourth day of the resumed war.

  • S. and Israeli officials said Hamas terrorist leader Yahya Sinwar is hiding behind at least 15 (perhaps as many as 20) hostages in tunnels below Gaza.
  • Turkey cut off all trade with Israel in protest over the Israel-Hamas war.

Friday, May 3, 2024 (Day 211): The one hundred-fifty-fifth day of the resumed war.

  • Egypt reported that Israel has given Hamas one week to accept a ceasefire proposal or Israel will begin its attack on Rafah.

Saturday, May 4, 2024 (Day 212): The one hundred-fifty-sixth day of the resumed war.

  • It was reported that Hamas agreed to release 33 hostages in exchange for a 40-day truce without a commitment from Israel to end the war. (But at this point, it is not official)
  • An Israeli official said if Hamas wants to end the war, they must leave Gaza. Israel will not end the war with Hamas still in power.

Sunday, May 5, 2024 (Day 213): The one hundred-fifty-seventh day of the resumed war.

  • The ceasefire talks ended with no agreement.
  • There are reports that Biden (the Pres. who says he has Israel’s back) put a hold on shipments of weapons and ammunition to Israel with no explanation of why.
  • An Israeli official said Israel is not another star on the American flag, and America doesn’t deserve to be called a friend of Israel anymore.
  • Netanyahu said we will fight alone if we have to. “Never again” (Israel will never surrender to another Holocaust) is now.
  • International organizations asked nations to reduce the amount of humanitarian aid to northern Gaza because too much is being sent and warehouses are full.

Monday, May 6, 2024 (Day 214): The one hundred-fifty-eighth day of the resumed war.

  • Israel said Hamas agreed to a ceasefire deal that Israel did not offer or accept.
  • It was reported that Biden’s CIA Director Burns guaranteed Hamas that the U.S. would force Israel to accept a ceasefire.
  • Israel said the U.S. secretly worked on a ceasefire agreement that Hamas would accept without Israel’s knowledge or asking Israel if it would agree.
  • Israel started evacuating citizens from eastern Rafah in preparation for a military invasion.
  • Israeli jets attacked several Hamas terrorist sites in Rafah.
  • Israel warned that there would be a powerful operation in Rafah very soon.
  • Israel said it would halt the invasion if Hamas offered an acceptable deal.
  • Israeli troops and tanks started entering east Rafah.
  • Israel seized the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing into Egypt.
  • It was reported that the U.S. has been trying to prevent the destruction of Hamas to use the group as leverage against Israel to get Israel to accept the Two-State Solution.
  • Tomorrow, the U.S. State Department will issue a Biden-mandated report to Congress on whether Israel is complying with U.S. rules on its use of U.S. weapons.

Tuesday, May 7, 2024 (Day 215): The one hundred-fifty-ninth day of the resumed war.

  • UN Sec. Gen. Guterres asked Israel to stop attacking Hamas in Rafah.

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.

It’s About Time :: By Daymond Duck

On Apr. 25, 2024, by a vote of 357-20, the European Parliament passed a resolution:

  • To place the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) on the list of terrorist groups.
  • To sanction Iran’s oil and banking industries.
  • To acknowledge that Iran is not keeping its nuclear agreement.
  • To acknowledge that Iran is destabilizing the Middle East.
  • To call for Hezbollah to cease its attacks on Israel and withdraw its forces to the Litani River.

These steps are important and long overdue, but years of watching the international community let Iran get away with violating sanctions and agreements has made me a skeptic.

(My opinion: Iran will likely sell its oil to Russia, China, or some other country; that country will sell the oil to a U.S. company at a higher price; U.S. citizens will pay the difference at a gas station, and nothing will be done about it; Iran will continue as usual. It’s about time they do something that makes a difference.)

Here are some recent articles that seem to indicate that the end of the age is close.

One, concerning hostages, Muslims keeping agreements, the decline of America, etc.: on Apr. 25, 2024, the U.S. was one of 17 nations that urged Hamas to release all the hostages it took when it attacked Israel on Oct. 7, 2023.

Hamas responded, “No. You can’t force us to do anything.”

The 17 nations are: the United States, Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Thailand, and the United Kingdom.

It is about time they realize that placating Islamic terrorists does not work.

Two, concerning Israel’s coming invasion of Rafah: on Apr. 26, 2024, it was reported that Hugh Lovatt, a senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said, “My assessment is that Hamas in Gaza will survive the Rafah operation. It has been a long time coming, and the military wing will have been preparing for this… to a certain extent, they will be able to regroup in the central part of Gaza and the north.”

Giving Hamas time to prepare and survive seems to be what Biden wanted by forcing Israel to delay the attack.

Biden has allowed Hamas time to regroup: stock up on weapons, ammunition, medical supplies, food, water, etc.; booby-trap, fortify, and disguise the tunnels, and more.

His efforts to protect Hamas will make the war more difficult for Israel and get more Israeli soldiers killed.

(More: On Apr. 26, 2024, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said it’s “not clear” that it’s even possible for Israel to have “a credible plan” for an invasion of Rafah that the White House would support.)

(More: On Apr. 28, 2024, former U.S. senator and candidate for Pres. of the U.S, Rick Santorum, said, “To him (Pres. Biden), it’s all about winning elections, and he is willing to throw Israel under the bus.” Santorum added, “President Biden is doing everything he can to pressure Israel into doing things that are not in their national security interests. He is doing everything he can to support Iran as being the power in the Middle East.”)

(My opinion: The White House will not support a plan that does not include the Two-State Solution – division of Israel – and Prime Min. Netanyahu will not agree to that. Netanyahu’s resistance is why Biden keeps trying to undermine him. Biblically speaking, the division of Israel is not in anyone’s interest; Joel 3:2.)

Three, concerning the Two-State Solution and the controversy over Jerusalem: on Apr. 29, 2024, it was reported that several EU nations will recognize a Palestinian State that includes the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem at the end of May despite Israeli opposition.

According to the European Council President, their goal is to trigger significant progress toward peace in the Middle East.

Israel has already said it will reject any unilateral recognition of a Palestinian State.

Four, on Apr. 29, 2024, U.S. Sec. of State Blinken met with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), and MBS announced that the Saudis will normalize relations with Israel in exchange for guarantees that there is a Palestinian State at some point in the future.

MBS was saying:

  • It is no longer a matter of if Saudi Arabia will normalize relations with Israel; it is a matter of when to do it (in the next few weeks, after the U.S. election, etc.).
  • Saudi Arabia will stop demanding the creation of a Palestinian State now and only ask for guarantees that there will be one in the future.

Israel is opposed to the creation of a Palestinian State due to the Palestinians’ ties to terrorists that are committed to the destruction of Israel.

According to the Bible, the Tribulation Period will begin when the Antichrist confirms a worthless 7-year treaty, and that may be shaping up.

(My opinion: Iran and her terrorist proxies and allies will try to thwart this.)

Five, concerning the violence and hatred toward Jews on college campuses: mobs of hate-filled students (and some college professors) are threatening to harm or kill Jews, disrupting classes, forcing Jews to leave the campus, forcing Jews to take classes online, calling for the destruction of Israel, calling for the destruction of America, calling for a repeat of Oct. 7 (rape of women, beheading babies, seizing hostages), etc.

On Apr. 24, 2024, Mike Johnson (U.S. Speaker of the House) called the demonstrations at Columbia University “disgusting and unacceptable,” and he called for the Pres. of Columbia University to resign.

On Apr. 24, 2024, Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu said, “What’s happening on America’s college campuses is horrific. Anti-Semitic mobs have taken over leading universities. They call for the annihilation of Israel. They attack Jewish students. They attack Jewish faculty – it is reminiscent of what happened in German universities in the 1930s.”

(More: On Apr. 26, 2024, it was reported that Columbia University expelled a student when a video of him was unearthed that has him saying, “Zionists don’t deserve to live.”)

(My opinion: It’s about time they acted. It seems to me that calling for the death of Jews and people who support Israel is hate speech.)

(My opinion: Satan wants to destroy Israel to make the Scriptures wrong and to prevent the Second Coming. It is impossible for him to succeed at this.)

(My opinion: Even though I am aware that some officials have good reason to believe that foreigners (and some U.S. haters such as the George Soros clan) are paying these protestors to harm America (and America’s relationship with Israel), something else is going through my mind: At the end of the age, God will cause multitudes of Jews to leave the nations they are in and to return to the Promised Land. The demonstrators are unwittingly fulfilling Bible prophecy that is a prelude to the Rapture and Tribulation Period.)

Six, because of complaints that Israel was hindering the flow of humanitarian aid into Gaza, the U.S. decided to build a pier in Gaza so ships can deliver aid.

U.S. troops working on the pier came under attack, and Israel agreed to protect them.

On Apr. 24, 2024, while UN officials were touring the pier to observe its construction, terrorists in Gaza started firing rockets at them, and the Israeli army rescued them.

(My opinion: The fact that Israel has to protect U.S. troops and UN officials while the U.S. and UN are trying to get humanitarian aid to the Palestinians is incredible. It reveals that a big part of the aid problem is Hamas, not Israel.)

Seven, concerning world government: on Apr. 28, 2023, it was reported that “Muslims across Europe are chanting Allahu Akbar and discussing ways to form a global Sharia law (Islamic world government) by force.”

Sadly, the Muslim groups that are behind this movement to take over the world are not banned.

Eight, concerning pestilence killing multitudes at the end of the age: on Apr. 23, 2024, it was reported that open border policies (like what is happening in the U.S.) are spreading pestilence around the world.

In many cases, government officials are spreading the diseases by transporting infected illegals to various cities in their nation and refusing to track them.

Diseases that were once thought to be extinct (or almost extinct) are on the rise, and apparently, many officials are unconcerned.

Nine, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on Apr. 26, 2024, Russia’s Defense Minister notified Iran’s Defense Minister that Russia is ready to expand its military and technical cooperation with Iran.

Ten, concerning the coming cashless society: a recent report by the World Economic Forum says, “Over 98 percent of the global economy’s central banks are researching, piloting or deploying central bank digital currency (CBDC).”

This is a necessary step toward tracking all buying and selling at the middle of the Tribulation Period.

(Note: As I understand it, the central banks must start using CBDCs before they can force ordinary citizens to use them.)

Eleven, concerning the coming economic collapse: on Apr. 28, 2024, it was reported that Ford sold 10,000 electric vehicles during the first 3 months of 2024, and it lost the equivalent of $132,000 for each vehicle sold.

The Biden administration seems determined to force consumers to shift from gas-powered vehicles to electric vehicles.

Twelve, concerning world government: society is now about one month away from the WHO meeting (May 27-June 1, 2024) when nations will cast their vote on the International Pandemic Treaty and amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHRs).

Concerning the WHO Pandemic Agreement, the Family Research Council (FRC) has concluded that:

  • The WHO Pandemic Agreement puts in place the beginnings of “a turnkey totalitarian state.”
  • FRC’s official comment filed with the U.S. government warns the WHO Pandemic Agreement, as written, “could authorize funding and support for abortion.” The agreement obligates nations to ensure the provision of “essential health care services during pandemics,” and critics say abortion can be held up as an essential service.

Concerning the WHO Pandemic Treaty and the International Health Regulations: on Apr. 25, 2024, presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy said:

  • In desperation, watered-down versions of the proposed international health regulations and pandemic treaty were floated over the past few days. Don’t be fooled! The WHO still wants experimental vaccines rolled out, still wants liability shields, still wants to impose censorship, and still plans to use ‘One Health’ to control humans, plants, animals, and ecosystems, all in the name of health.

According to the Bible (Rev. 13:2-7), the world will be ruled by a satanic world government during the Tribulation Period, and the world is on the brink of a vote that will permit unelected godless people to establish one.

Thirteen, concerning the tracking of all buying and selling during the Tribulation Period: a committee in the U.S. House of Representatives is investigating several U.S. government agencies (FBI, etc.) and at least 13 financial institutions (Bank of America, Chase, Citi Bank, Wells Fargo, etc.) for tracking what people bought following the J6 demonstrations at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, etc., without warrants.

Without getting the required court permission, federal agencies apparently tracked the purchases of private citizens to see if they bought guns, knives, etc.

Part of the problem appears to be that federal agencies haven’t limited their tracking of purchases to J6 citizens; they have also tracked millions of other citizens who hold conservative views (called white supremacists, white nationalists, etc.).

Simply put, it looks like big government has started spying on average American citizens who are politically conservative (especially those who might oppose the globalist agenda or support Make America Great Again).

Fourteen, concerning the destruction of Damascus in one night: on Apr. 29, 2024, it was reported that a Western diplomat said, “The Israelis clearly warned Assad (Syria’s Pres.) that if Syria was used against them (in Israel’s war with Hamas), they (Israel) would destroy his regime.”

Hezbollah and Iran have attacked Israel from Syrian territory (and there are some Hamas terrorists in Syria), but Pres. Assad appears to have kept Syria’s troops out of the Israel-Hamas war.

Fifteen, concerning pestilences at the end of the age: on Apr. 28, 2024, the Arizona Republican Party passed a resolution that says mRNA jabs are biological and technological weapons.

The “Ban the Jab” resolution calls upon the governor and attorney general to analyze the vaccines and prevent their distribution.

Some authorities believe people have committed murder by forcing others to take mRNA jabs.

Sixteen, concerning corruption in Washington: on Apr. 29, 2024, it was reported that a South Carolina state representative said, “The federal government is including voter registration forms in packets at the Social Security Office in Spartanburg, South Carolina,” and the packages are being sent to non-citizen refugees.

Seventeen, concerning world government: there are reports that the UN may restructure itself (called UN 2.0) at the Summit for the Future on Sept. 22-23, 2024, to speed up the development of world government.

I cannot predict what they will do, but power must be given to Ten Kings before the Antichrist appears, and everything seems to indicate that he is waiting in the wings.

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

Thursday, Apr. 25, 2024 (Day 202): The one hundred-forty-seventh day of the resumed war.

  • An anti-ship ballistic missile fired by the Iranian-backed Houthis at a U.S. ship in the Gulf of Aden was shot down.
  • Several missiles (about 7) were fired from Lebanon into Israel. Israel struck back.

Friday, Apr. 26, 2024 (Day 203): The one hundred-forty-eighth day of the resumed war.

  • Egypt sent negotiators to Israel to push for a ceasefire that would hold off an Israeli invasion of Rafah.
  • Israel told Egypt this is a last chance for a ceasefire. Hamas must quit stalling and accept a ceasefire soon, or Israel will attack Rafah.
  • Houthi terrorists attacked 2 vessels in the Red Sea (one damaged).

Saturday, Apr. 27, 2024 (Day 204): The one hundred-forty-ninth day of the resumed war.

  • A Hezbollah official said Jews will not be allowed to return to their homes in northern Israel anytime soon, and the increased fighting between Hezbollah and Israel may mean they will never be allowed to return.

Sunday, Apr. 28, 2024 (Day 205): The one-hundred-fiftieth day of the resumed war.

  • Saudi Arabia does not say so publicly, but in private, they prefer to see the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists defeated.
  • Israel said it is expecting Hamas Gaza Chief Sinwar to respond to the latest ceasefire proposal within 48 hours. Hamas said a delegation will deliver its response in Egypt on Monday.
  • Fox News asked the White House if college protesters will be barred from student loan forgiveness programs, and the White House did not comment.
  • In a phone call between Biden and Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Min. asked Biden to prevent the International Criminal Court (ICC) from issuing arrest warrants for Netanyahu and several other Israeli officials. The U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee is threatening to demand sanctions against ICC officials if they issue arrest warrants.

Monday, Apr. 29, 2024 (Day 206): The one hundred-fifty-first day of the resumed war.

  • The Lebanon branch of Hamas launched about 3 dozen rockets into Israel.
  • Israel killed an Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander (IRGC) in Iran that attacked several synagogues in Germany 2 years ago.

Tuesday, Apr. 30, 2024 (Day 207): The one hundred-fifty-second day of the resumed war.

  • The right-wing parties in Netanyahu’s government are threatening to leave if he puts off the invasion of Rafah again. This could possibly (but not necessarily) bring down Netanyahu’s government. There will be an urgent meeting today to discuss the matter.
  • Netanyahu said Israel will attack Rafah with or without a ceasefire deal.
  • Qatar reneged on an agreement with the U.S. to expel Hamas leaders and freeze Hamas bank accounts in Qatar if Hamas did not agree to a release of hostages. (My opinion: Agreements with terrorists who are determined to kill people are worthless.)

Wednesday, May 1, 2024 (Day 208): The one hundred-fifty-third day of the resumed war.

  • Netanyahu told U.S. Sec. of State Blinken he will not accept the end of the war in Gaza as part of a hostage deal.
  • Israel is expecting a response from Hamas on Israel’s latest ceasefire offer later tonight.

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.
