Prayer Center

As Christians, we are called to pray for God’s guidance and wisdom. At Rapture Ready we feel it is more imperative than ever for believers to stand together in prayerful unity as the world continues on a downward spiral toward the Tribulation hour. Calamity causes people to waste huge amounts of time fixated on watching the destruction instead of praying for protection and God’s miraculous interventions.

The Bible is filled with verses encouraging us to stay focused on praying for God’s will for our lives; for the safety and wellbeing of our families, ministries and leaders; for the spiritual awakening of the unsaved so they to come to true salvation in Christ; and of course for one another and anything that the Lord places upon our hearts.

Up to the final moments of our days on earth, until the day of the Rapture of the Church, we are dedicated to be prayer warriors for the cause of Christ. We have added this new page to invite and motivate our fellow believers to pray for the most pressing needs of the day.

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2)

While Evildoers and Seducers Wax Worse and Worse

Extreme Weather

In the US, an outbreak of severe weather that began last weekend continued this week, and is expected to continue into Monday. There have been close to 50 tornadoes from EFO to EF3, and widespread destruction. Over a dozen people have died and dozens more have been injured.

South Asia: Thunderstorms, dust storms, strong winds and heavy rain affected several states in India and Pakistan this week, damaging homes and downing trees. Over 100 people lost their lives. In neighboring Afghanistan, at least 16 people have died in flash floods in Herat and Nangarhar Provinces.

Earthquakes

In Taiwan, a strong 6.1 earthquake shook the city of Taipei on Thursday, evacuating schools and halting transportation. 17 people were injured, including a hiker who is in critical condition after being hit by falling rocks.

In California, a cluster of small earthquakes shook the Santa Cruz Mountains on Thursday. The San Andreas fault runs through the region. In 1906, the fault produced a magnitude 7.9 earthquake that killed more than 3,000 people and destroyed 28,000 buildings.

Pestilence/Plague/Disease

A locust outbreak in the Arabian Peninsula has been spreading to Iran, threatening crops and food security.

New battleground for syphilis: While syphilis is still concentrated in cities such as San Francisco, Atlanta and Las Vegas, it is spreading in rural America: places like Missouri, Iowa, Kansas and Oklahoma. For example: One Missouri clinic has seen over six times as many cases in the first few months of 2019 compared with the same period last year.

So far this year, there have been 465 cases of measles reported in 19 states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that with the Easter holiday weekend, the measles outbreak is expected to spread even further.

The CDC says 2019 appears to be the worst year for measles cases in a quarter-century. In California, a Google employee in California has been diagnosed with measles. A company physician sent out a “note of caution” to certain employees informing them of the information and providing links to CDC facts about the highly infectious disease.

New York City closed a Brooklyn yeshiva’s preschool for defying a Health Department order to provide medical and attendance records regarding measles vaccinations.

Madagascar is said to be facing the largest measles outbreak in its history, as cases are said to have grown beyond 115,000, with over 1,200 deaths in the past seven months.

Apostasy in the Churches

A survey of 2,042 British adults was carried out by ComRes on behalf of the BBC and asked participants, “To what extent, if at all, do you agree or disagree that Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected so that you can be forgiven for your sins?” Out of the respondents who identified as Christian, a quarter said they neither disagreed nor agreed, while 17% who identified as Christian said they did not agree.

Hatred of All That Claims to Be Christian

There is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity. “In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media try to conceal the identity of the vandals. Countless churches throughout Western Europe are being vandalized, defecated on, and torched.”

The terrorist group ISIS reportedly celebrated the destruction of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France that caught fire Monday. And those tweets by Muslims, despite what the mainstream media tells you, are true. A later video showed what was actually said in those laughing emoji posts.

Just two days after the Notre Dame fire in Paris, a statue of Mary was decapitated in a small French village, despite being made of cast iron with metal reinforcements. It’s the latest in a deluge of attacks on churches and cemeteries in France.

New Jersey philosophy professor Marc Lamparello was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral carrying cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters. He had also booked a flight to Rome. NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller said the suspect is known to police. He is currently being held for psychiatric evaluation.

Muslim Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar called the Notre Dame Cathedral “art and architecture” Monday, without referencing its name or significance to the Catholic religion.

Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, an openly gay Episcopalian, said Democrats ought to woo the “religious left” to counter the voting power of conservative Christians. He said Democrats should not be afraid to argue that the “Christian faith is going to point you in a progressive direction.” Democrats’ relationship with the faith? In 2012, Democrats snubbed religious voters by removing language about God from their party’s platform. They later put it back amid vocal protests from the convention floor.

Hatred of the Jewish People and Israel

A man in northern France (who has not been named) stabbed his neighbor 15 times in the stomach and face because (as he told witnesses) he “wanted to kill a Jew.” The victim (who is not Jewish) was saved by a friend, who was with him at the time of the assault and came between the victim and the attacker. The attacker also attacked two policemen while attempting to escape from a hospital where he was scheduled to undergo hand surgery. He also was scheduled to undergo psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he is criminally responsible.

The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill hosted the “Conflict Over Gaza: People, Politics, and Possibilities conference,” cosponsored by Duke University and funded in part by a federal grant of some $235,000. In a performance at this event, the anti-Zionist Israeli-Arab rapper Tamer Nafar called on the audience to be anti-Semitic and said, “Let’s try it together. I need your help because I cannot be anti-Semitic alone.” Nafar continued, “You look beautifully anti-Semitic.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is at it again. She’s saying that cutting US aid to Israel should be a policy consideration because of Netanyahu’s reelection.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said there’s no ‘taint’ of anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party. She even defended Ilhan Omar during an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, saying that she didn’t think that Omar was anti-Semitic when it’s so obvious that she is.

In Russia, an arson fire was set at the largest Jewish yeshiva in the country just ahead of the Passover celebration. Swastikas were also sprayed on the seminary.

Islam’s Agenda

The International Union of Muslim scholars is urging Imams to preach armed jihad against Israel. According to Islam’s teachings in the Hadith,  Islam’s esteemed prophet Muhammad said: “The Hour will come only when the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them; and if a Jew hides behind a rock or a tree, the rock or tree will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him….” Yet the media continues the false narrative that Allah is the same as the God of the Bible. They LIE.

Their version of Jesus is a Muslim who will force non-Muslims to bow to Islam or die. “Eesa…will kill him (Dajjal/false messiah) with his spear…and the Muslims who are with him (Eesa) will kill a great number of the Jews.” “Eesa ibn Maryam (Jesus, Son of Mary) will call the Jews to Islam.” Their Eesa lives for 40 years after that, then dies. People need to research and learn instead of believing everything they’re told.

Terrorism

Thomas Haldenwang of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency warned against the increasing threat posed by returning German citizens who joined ISIS jihadis in Syria and northern Iraq. The number of Islamist jihadis in Germany rose to 2,240 in 2018. Haldenwang said. “ISIS can launch an attack in Germany anytime.” These so-called citizens were let back in because Merkel’s government is not in the least concerned that they joined an entity that is avowedly at war with Germany and has repeatedly called for attacks on German civilians. Haldenwang “admitted it’s not possible for authorities to monitor all terror suspects.”

The Occult

The Netflix reboot of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” seems so eerily satanic because the streaming service employs actual Wiccans to ensure maximum accuracy.

Days of Noah Returned

Japanese regulators have effectively given the green light to research involving human-animal chimera embryos, created by implanting human stem cells into animals in early development. The revised guidelines lift a previous requirement to terminate such embryos after 14 days. The revisions pave the way for Japanese scientists to study how to grow human organs in animals as an alternative to organ transplantation, and to produce better models to study human development and disease.

The powerful gene-editing technique called CRISPR has been in the news a lot. And not all the news has been good: A Chinese scientist stunned the world last year when he announced he had used CRISPR to create genetically modified babies. The claim is that CRISPR gene-editing can help cure diseases. But The big concern about CRISPR is that the editing could go awry, causing unintended changes in DNA.

Returned Days of Lot

Government school officials in California are teaching about pedophilia and pederasty, calling it a “sexual orientation” and saying it’s part of history. Obviously, there’s more to the story than having to teach children about such perversions merely because they “occurred.” There was a time when exposing children to far more mild obscenities was a crime. Now it is considered “education.”

In Oregon, Niles Lehman, a science professor at Portland State University, has been arrested and charged with 35 counts of producing child porn.

Agenda: No child will be left unindoctrinated. We are seeing an explosion of children and young adults coming out of government-run schools, confused about everything including their gender. Government schools teach our children things that are against God’s laws, in defiance of God, and against our beliefs, in defiance of our rights.

A liberal feminist mother of a so-called gender-dysphoric teen is warning parents that transgender activists are ensuring it will soon be “nearly impossible” to find a mental health professional who is willing to help these children evaluate their self-perceptions. “I quickly discovered that it is nearly impossible to find therapists who do this kind of work,” she said. “If a girl presents as transgender today, the vast majority of therapists will immediately affirm the girl’s declared gender identity and ask her what steps she would like to take toward transition.”

Pete Buttigieg, and openly gay Episcopalian, has officially launched his bid to become the Democrat Party’s nominee for the 2020 presidential election. He brought his “husband” on stage for an embrace and a kiss. Two protestors who mentioned Sodom and Gomorrah were quickly shouted down by the crowd of 1,650 people, and were escorted out while the crowd chanted Buttigieg’s name in support.

The Royal Canadian Mint announced that it will hold an official unveiling of a new Canadian one-dollar coin that celebrates LGBTQ’s.

Do Not Offend or Despise God’s Little Ones

In Vermont, Susan Cooke Kittredge, associate (so-called) pastor at Charlotte Congregational Church, a United Church of Christ congregation, urged voters to “trust women” by supporting an amendment that would create a “right” to abortion in the state constitution.

Planned Parenthood, which killed 332,000 babies last year and is funded by 500 million tax dollars a year, is on the defensive now because very soon they will take a hit to their bottom line and their image. Between the impending loss of millions in Title X funding and the bad PR associated with a new movie “Unplanned,” word is getting out that abortion, central to Planned Parenthood’s business, is the opposite of healthcare.

Ireland pleaded with Catholic religious orders on Wednesday to reveal where decades-old remains of all babies who died in their care are buried, after an official inquiry found they provided remarkably little evidence about their deaths. A report revealed that remains ranging in age from 35 fetal weeks to 3 years were stored in underground chambers at a former Catholic church-run Bon Secours home for unwed mothers, reviving anguish over how women and children were once treated at state-backed Roman Catholic institutions. 802 children died at the home in Tuam between 1925 and 1961, and some bodies are likely buried elsewhere on the site.

The latest report also found that over 3,000 children died in five other institutions over a similar time period. In one case, investigators could only establish where 64 of the 900 children recorded to have died at the County Cork home of Bessborough were buried, despite extensive searches.

Lawlessness

5-year-old Landon who was thrown from the third floor balcony at the Mall of America by a monstrous stranger is making small steps toward recovery according to his gofundme page, but he faces numerous surgeries and rehabilitation.

A hacker group posted online the personal information of at least 1,400 unique records of employees of the FBI, Secret Service, Capitol Police, U.S. Park Police and other federal agencies as well as police and sheriffs’ deputies in North Carolina and Florida. The records included home addresses and phone numbers, emails and employers’ names.

In London, “climate change” protesters demanding the government take action on “global warming” have spent the last five days causing havoc, blocking traffic, threatening to disrupt Heathrow airport and littering en masse.

Mexico is on track to record its most violent year on record, according to security experts who point out that the daily homicide statistics provided by the federal government have underestimated the actual number by over 20%. There were 7,056 intentional homicides in the first three months of 2019 – an average of 78 per day.

Border Disorder

300 illegals trying to cross the US border Tuesday night surrendered to an independent group of armed New Mexico citizens called “United Constitutional Patriots.”

Traitors

Is the Obama-Clinton Axis of Evil about to be dealt with for real? “The open running sore of intelligence agency abuse and criminal behavior on the part of the Obama Justice Department and Intelligence Agency heads is about to be lanced and exposed by the upcoming investigation by Attorney General William Barr. Barr will take a close look at the events surrounding the targeting of Donald Trump in 2016, the origins of the Mueller inquisition, and the attempted coup d’état by a rogue FBI and Justice Department against a sitting president. Their crimes are on a scale which defy the imagination. Yet there they are in plain sight. Where a corrupt mainstream media refuse to look.”

The agent behind the anti-Trump dossier, Christopher Steele, is refusing to cooperate with the Dept of Justice. Politico reported that the department is conducting an investigation that “will likely take direct aim” at Steele. More questions about Steele’s credibility have come to light. “Wow! FBI made 11 payments to Fake Dossier’s discredited author, Trump hater Christopher Steele,” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. “The Witch Hunt has been a total fraud on your President and the American people!”

“If you expected the denizens of our fake national news media to accept the truth of the Mueller Report and move on to focusing on real news, think again. If you expected fake reporters who have gotten literally everything about this entire fiasco wrong for two solid years to do a mea culpa and promise to do better going forward, well, sorry.” They’re in full-blown meltdown mode. Read at this link just a few examples of the madness. {Sorry for the H… C…p phrase in the article].

Surveillance Society

Facebook admitted Wednesday that it may have unintentionally uploaded” about 1.5 million users’ email contacts since May 2016, as the tech behemoth continues to grapple with privacy-related concerns.

Left-wing employees at Google are threatening the employment of their colleagues amid a panic about frequent leaks revealing political bias in the company’s products and working atmosphere.

Beast Technology

Over 60 evangelical leaders released a statement addressing artificial intelligence (A(). The Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) spent nine months working on a document designed to equip the church with an ethical framework for thinking about this emergent technology.

“There are many heated debates in Washington, many of them important,” said ERLC president Russell Moore. “But no issues keep me awake at night like those surrounding technology and artificial intelligence. The implications artificial intelligence will have for our future are vast.” Moore added, “It is critical that the church be proactive in understanding AI. It’s also critical that the church insist AI be used in ways consistent with the truth that all people possess dignity and worth, created as they are in the image of God.”

A recent survey by the IE University in Madrid reveals that one in four Europeans would be willing to put artificial intelligence (AI) in power to run their countries. “The idea of a pragmatic machine, impervious to fraud and corruption” is one of the reasons that seems most compelling to the interviewees.

Wars and Rumors of Wars

Kings of the East: China tested its new tactical laser that can be deployed on both land and sea.

New evidence this week from China’s state-owned media reveals that the world’s first armed amphibious drone boat for sea assault operations has rolled off the assembly line. “They can hide and hibernate, do autonomous patrols, and launch rapid assaults and landings.”

A gunshot was fired at Israeli troops along the Gaza border on Friday, prompting retaliatory strikes on nearby Hamas positions.

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has announced the launch of OPAL, an innovative solution that will redefine the battlefield by connecting all platforms in the battle arena, manned and unmanned alike.

Another significant natural gas discovery has been made off Israel’s shore, further cementing it as an energy superpower. Add that to the other natural gas discovery and the oil Israel discovered in the Golan. Until these discoveries in recent years, few perceived the historically natural resource-poor Israel to be a significant source of energy.

New satellite photos revealed that the Russian military has been deploying ballistic missile systems in Syria, which are surface-to-surface missile systems capable of reaching 500 kilometers (310 miles).

Russia and Turkey (two players in the end-time invasion of Israel) are now deeply entwined on trade and defense.

“Peace and Safety”

PA (aka PLO) President M. Abbas says he’s ready to meet with PM Netanyahu if Russia hosts it.

The EU rejected Israeli annexation talk and warns of Middle East chaos. Such a move would destroy the possibility of a two-state resolution to the Israeli-“Palestinian” conflict, Mogherini said, adding that settlement construction was already making the idea of two states impossible.

Jared Kushner says the “peace” proposal will be presented after Israel forms a governing coalition, and after the Islamic holiday of Ramadan, which ends June 5th.

Iniquity Abounds

Special Prayer Request: The family of the 5-year-old child who was thrown off the third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in Minnesota appreciates your prayers. Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda was arrested. Aranda had been arrested in 2015 at this mall for throwing objects from the third-floor balcony and had other previous run-ins in which police were called. A GoFundMe account was set up for the child. If he survives, he will need extensive rehabilitation. The family appreciates everyone’s prayers.

Extreme Weather

In the US, a slow-moving weather system brought a host of impacts to a large swath of the country affecting 200 million people this week, including 30 inches of snow in some places; its strength rivaled the power of the bomb cyclone three weeks ago. There were hundreds of car accidents and at least two deaths. Some states saw the unusual phenomenon of brown snow due to powerful winds on the back side of the storm in the central US picking up dust and lofting it high into the atmosphere. These winds blew the dust northward, where it mixed with the snow and fell on the northern side of the storm. (In Siberia in Russia, black snow fell in February due to coal dust picked up by winds in the same manner).

Denver, Colorado, had temperatures near 80 degrees on Tuesday, and winter snow on Wednesday. The twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota had temperatures in the 70’s on Monday; by Thursday, they experienced full-blown blizzard conditions, including 8 to 12 inches of snow. In South Dakota where some places got 30 inches of snow, a rancher said it’s one of the worst spring storms he’s ever seen; and when it passes, he, along with thousands of South Dakota ranchers, will dig through snowbanks to find potentially thousands of frozen calves buried under the snow.”

In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, gusty winds ahead of a severe storm sent clouds of pollen hundreds of feet into the air, reminiscent of a phenomenon known as a haboob. These are more common in the deserts of the southwestern US.

In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at least ten people died when over a month’s rain (31cm; 13 inches) fell in one day. “These rains are absolutely abnormal for this time of year; none of us expected so much rain at this time,” Mayor Marcelo Crivella said. A landslide swallowed homes, floodwaters rose up in hospitals and power lines collapsed as streets turned into roaring rivers. The storm knocked down the walls of a caiman (alligator cousins) farm in a neighborhood controlled, like others in Rio de Janeiro, by a heavily armed criminal group. This made the local authorities reluctant to enter and left the creatures, which can grow to be 11 feet long, to swim through the flooded streets, terrifying residents.

In Northern Europe, residents felt like the calendar flipped back to March as Arctic air put April warmth on hold into this weekend. The biggest shock has been felt from the Netherlands to Poland, where temperatures soared well above normal prior to the arrival of the cold air.

Strong Earthquakes (Over 6.0 unless it’s shallow and/or hits a populated area)

April 9, in the ocean far off the coast of El Salvador

April 11, 6.1 off the coast of Japan

April 12, 6.8 off the coast of Indonesia

April 13, a shallow therefore strong 5.3 earthquake hit Hawaii’s Big Island causing rockfalls and power outages.

Pestilence/Disease

Pre-cut melon (and melon mixed with other fruit) sold at Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Target, Kroger and Whole Foods has been voluntarily recalled due to the possibility of salmonella. 93 cases have been reported from nine states: Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. Twenty-three people have been hospitalized.

New York City has declared a public health emergency in parts of Brooklyn, ordering all residents to be vaccinated to fight a measles outbreak concentrated in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community where some residents oppose vaccines on religious grounds — although neither Jewish texts nor local Jewish authorities advise against vaccination. Since October, 285 cases of measles have been confirmed in New York City, according to the CDC. None proved fatal, but 21 patients required hospitalization and five were admitted to intensive care.

Candida Auris, a mysterious and deadly infection, is spanning the globe in a climate of secrecy:

Last May, an elderly man was admitted to the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood test revealed that he was infected with a newly discovered germ (Candida Auris) as deadly as it was mysterious. Doctors swiftly isolated him in the intensive care unit. The man died after 90 days in the hospital, but C. Auris did not. Tests showed it was everywhere in his room, so invasive that the hospital needed special cleaning equipment and had to rip out some of the ceiling and floor tiles to eradicate it.

“Everything was positive — the walls, the bed, the doors, the curtains, the phones, the sink, the whiteboard, the poles, the pump,” said Dr. Scott Lorin, the hospital’s president. “The mattress, the bed rails, the canister holes, the window shades, the ceiling, everything in the room was positive.”

  1. Auris is so tenacious, in part, because it is impervious to major antifungal medications, making it a new example of one of the world’s most intractable health threats: the rise of drug-resistant infections. Those with weak immune systems are especially at risk.

A top Red Cross official said he’s “more concerned than I have ever been” about the possible regional spread of the Ebola virus after a new spike in cases, as the World Health Organization met on whether to declare the outbreak in Congo an international health emergency.

Last Days Return to Days of Lot

A Norwegian CEO who ran poster campaigns trying to recruit young women to become “sugar babies” to older men outside university campuses has been charged with “public incitement to debauchery” in Belgium. Sigurd Vedal, 47, began his ‘Rich Meet Beautiful’ website in Scandinavia, launching a recruitment drive to expand the business in Belgium in 2018 with a promise to provide young when with a “Fifty Shades of Grey” experience.

University of Notre Dame President John I. Jenkins has rejected calls to install an Internet filter on campus that would block pornography.

In New York, a rabbinical school knew for three years that a student was gay and planned give him semicha (ordination) as a rabbi until he got engaged to his gay lover in a very public way and then moved in with him. Leftists/LGBTQ’s are rallying to support the student, saying he should still be allowed to be a rabbi.

In Colorado, despite parent attempts to opt children as young as five out of presentations telling them traditional gender roles are evil and people can be whatever sex they feel like, Superior Elementary School in Boulder Valley School District showed the material anyway. The Democrats in the Colorado State Assembly are pushing for a “Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education” bill, HB19-1032. This bill will require schools to teach children specific topics such as “sexual experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals,” while the bill stipulates religious tenets or doctrines may not even be “implicitly” taught.

In Sweden, the Diocese of Västerås, a division of the Church of Sweden, is now giving away an LGBTQ guide for “Christian queer kids.” This guide describes Jesus as “queer” and Joseph as a transvestite.

Maine state Rep. Ryan Fecteau and state Sen. Linda Sanborn, both Democrats, introduced a bill that would make it illegal for any mental health professional to respond to children who express unwanted sexual attractions or gender confusion by helping them to explore these conflicted feelings or perceptions.

A Texas family court is demanding that a 6-year-old boy be chemically castrated against his father’s wishes. The child’s mother is pushing for the transition, yet the child doesn’t present himself as a girl when he’s with his father.

Gay mayor Pete Buttigieg who is running for president of the United States says Christianity must move on from its old model to be more ‘inclusive’ and ‘humane’ in order to accommodate the LGBTQ etc. lifestyle. No, Pete. It’s more humane to tell them the truth rather than flattering them into hell.

The so-called Equality Act going through Congress is really the homosexual supremacy Act. The Left has deceived more people by this one word than perhaps by any other. After all, who could be against equality? But the reality is that not all behaviors are equal in moral value and should not be treated the same. The behavior of a man engaged in the act of sodomy with a homosexual partner is not morally equivalent to the behavior of a man who is engaged in loving and conjugal union with the wife of his youth. It is moral blindness and even stupidity to pretend otherwise.

A Canadian tribunal fined Bill Whatcott $55,000 for “misgendering” someone. He expressed Christian views on “transgenderism” and called a biological male a man. And it’s not just Canada. Last month, a Catholic journalist in England was interrogated by police at her house after she “misgendered” a child with whom she had appeared on TV. And we’re sure you’ve all heard of school children being threatened with punishment for so-called “misgendering” another child who has “changed their gender identity.”

Tasmania has become Australia’s first state to make listing gender optional on birth certificates. The bill also removes a condition that required “transgenders” to have surgery before their gender was recognized (not that adding or cutting off anything changes that in reality, as we know).

Iniquity (lawless/wickedness) Shall Abound

Kellie Collins, a Democrat former congressional candidate in Georgia’s 10th District, who touted her support for responsible gun regulation to protect the community, shot and killed her campaign manager/ boyfriend who lived with her, then stole his SUV.

In Chicago, warm weather last weekend brought out the killing. 24 people were shot in one day. Chicago is a sanctuary city and is proud of it. Shootings have spiked nearly 60% at the start of April compared to last year. At least 88 people have been shot within city limits in the first 10 days of April, Here’s just one example: Last Saturday, six were wounded, including two children, when two men opened fire on a baby shower in Englewood. Gun laws? Chicago has them. But the criminals will always get their hands on them, leaving the innocent in danger.

In Florida, over two dozen possible graves were discovered at the site of the notorious Arthur G. Dozier reform school for boys, years after researchers found an estimated 50 unmarked graves on school grounds. Several men who attended the school as young boys alleged that they were savagely battered with leather straps by administrators and staff. Others told of how some students were beaten to death.

It’s a well-known fact that serial killers start out as animal abusers. It’s also known that they don’t they get the punishment they deserve for abusing animals, which God warns against (Proverbs 12:10).

In Portland, Oregon, Fidel Lopez was given the maximum 60 days in jail for sexually abusing a small dog that was injured so badly internally it had to be euthanized. This pervert should be euthanized. Who wants such as this walking the streets?

In China, a sadistic medical student (intern at a burn center, ironically) poured a pot of boiling water over his puppy for pooing in its crate, and posted it online. Classmates have accused him of regularly punishing his pet whenever he’s reprimanded by his supervisors and teachers. They also claim he starved a small dog to death and that he often posts videos of his animal abuse, captioning his footage: “Here’s my latest work.” According to reports, concerned classmates and animal rights volunteers who came across the video rescued the dog. Tens of thousands of social media users demanded action from Nantong University, which released a statement saying it had looked into the incident and referred Chen to the police.

Globalist Agendas

Depopulation

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed into law today a bill targeting elderly and disabled people that legalizes assisted suicide statewide. New Jersey will force taxpayers to fund the suicides. This makes the 7th state to legalize assisted suicide.

In Massachusetts, during a recent event sponsored by Boston College’s Pro-Life Club, a female student stood in front of a microphone and said a baby born alive during a botched abortion should not receive medical care because science has determined that it’s not a baby. Indoctrinated group-think.

In Argentina, a group of teachers belonging to a radical feminist group engaged in a pro-abortion campaign distributed to children sugar-coated treats resembling Easter eggs that bore the slogan “Aborta Ya,” as part of a wider effort they called “Abort the little surprise.”

Failed Georgia 2018 Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said her state’s pro-life “Heartbeat” bill which would ban abortions after six weeks  is “evil” and “bad for business.”

In Kentucky, a federal appeals panel ruled to uphold a 2017 Kentucky law requiring doctors to perform an ultrasound and present the resulting image to women aborting their pregnancies. Under the law, HB2, physicians must show an ultrasound image and play audio of the fetal heartbeat before a woman is allowed to have an abortion. However, a women is permitted to look away from the ultrasound and ask that the volume of the heartbeat, if present, be turned down. The left, as usual, is protesting the bill.

California caved to Planned Parenthood’s demands in forcing churches to fund abortions. Three churches filed a notice of appeal, challenging the mandate that forces churches to pay for elective abortions in their health insurance plans.

A California Assembly committee has passed a bill that would put Planned Parenthood’s phone number in the pocket of every California student age 12 – 24. Every student ID will include the number of “a sexual or reproductive health hotline.”

A California Senate Committee recently affirmed a law which, if enacted, would require public universities in California to provide students with free access to “the abortion pill.”

An Illinois abortion facility that makes its living aborting viable, later-term unborn babies has a new billboard advertising to women in Missouri. “Welcome to Illinois, where you can get a safe, legal abortion,” the billboard by Hope Clinic for Women says. It is located on the interstate near the state border. The abortion facility hopes to target women from Missouri, where abortions are more heavily restricted than in Illinois. Its website also tells women how they can get a taxpayer-funded abortion in Illinois.

Google marked the pro-life film “Unplanned” as “propaganda.” Yet literal Nazi propaganda films are labeled “history.”

Read this about a bride who wanted her bridesmaid to have an abortion because she was having a child-free wedding.

South Korea’s ban on abortion has been ruled unconstitutional in a historic court decision.

Divide and Conquer Indoctrination

In Ohio, Democrat state representative Janine R. Boyd proposed an amendment to Ohio’s heartbeat bill (no abortions after heartbeat detected) that seeks an exemption for African-American women, citing historical “rape and forced birth imposed on enslaved women.”

Candice Owens rightfully blasted a Dem lawmaker in a bogus ‘hate crimes’ hearing for misconstruing her remarks, even though another Democrat tried to silence her, also misconstruing the remarks she’d just made. Candice said, “Let me be clear; the hearing today is not about white nationalism or hate crimes. It is about fear mongering, power and control. It is a preview of a Democrat 2020 election strategy the same as the Democrat 2016 election strategy.” Owens said the objective “is to scare blacks, Hispanics, gays and Muslims into helping them censor dissenting opinions ultimately to helping them regain control of our country’s narrative which they feel that they lost.” She said white nationalism isn’t the true issue and that the biggest scandal is the Democrat Party’s fear-mongering to “brown people” and keeping minorities “perpetual victims.” Amen. She blasted the room with the truth!

Border Disorder (Taking Down Western Nations)

The fiend who stalked and raped a New Jersey jogger before drowning her in a lake is an illegal immigrant from Honduras who had already been kicked out of the US twice before, authorities said Thursday. Jorge Rios, 33, was deported from the US first in 2003 and then again in 2004, but snuck back across the border at some point after that.

Mexican Border State Police were attacked with grenades and rifles near El Paso, Texas. A group of cartel gunmen sprayed rifle fire and tossed two grenades at the government installation which houses the command staff of the state police commission. A short time later, security elements stopped a Ford vehicle with a Texas license plate and subsequently arrested both occupants, later identified as Javier H. R. and Ana G. C. A total of nine, 9mm rounds of ammunition were found inside the vehicle.

Mexican authorities said a group of about 350 migrants broke the locks on a gate at the Guatemalan border Friday and forced their way into southern Mexico to join a larger group of migrants trying to make their way toward the US.

In more leftist projection, lies and alibis, CNN National Security Analyst Samantha Vinograd claimed that Obama only separated migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border “for their protection” during a panel discussion in which pundits attacked President Trump’s border policies. Trump wants the children protected from smugglers who pose as family, but the left refuses to admit that. [Those photos of children/adults in cages were actually taken during Obama’s presidency].

From Breitbart: There are over 10,000 illegal aliens in the US from countries that sponsor terrorism. Of these 10,000, over 6,000 are from Iran (61%), 20% from Syria, 18% from Sudan. They’ve been ordered deported by ICE or have pending orders, despite remaining here. The overwhelming majority of illegal aliens, once resettled, are never deported. There are over 1.7 million illegal aliens in the US who have not been deported despite being ordered deported or having pending deportation orders. US intelligence officials have stated there are Iranian sleeper cells in the US ready and waiting for the order.

Sanctuary cities/states pose a danger in this country. For instance, California has the largest population of Iranians outside of Iran. California is not cooperating with immigration authorities, so their sanctuary law is preventing ICE from removing these individuals. Of that number 10,000 … 6,000 of these individuals are Iranian.

Despite sanctuary cities shielding all illegal aliens from deportation, regardless of their criminal history, ICE agents were able to deport on average about 44 illegal aliens in the last two fiscal years who were known or suspected terrorists. The Diversity Visa Lottery, which imports over 50,000 random foreign nationals to the country every year through a random drawing — has brought nearly 30,000 legal immigrants to the US in the last decade from countries sponsoring terrorism (about 30% of all Visa Lottery immigrants).

Godless Socialism/Marxism/Communism

Prominent Swedish lawmaker Björn Söder says (Marxist) George Soros’s influence on European politics and policies make him “one of the most dangerous men” in Europe.

Large parts of Socialist Venezuela have been hit by yet another power blackout. Its dictator Maduro is determined to hold on to his illegitimate rule.

The Marxist Pope Francis is pushing more propaganda. At the serpent-like designed papal audience hall this week, he blamed the US and Europe for the deaths of children in Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan, stating there would be no wars if wealthy Western countries didn’t manufacture arms. Hmm… since he doesn’t bother to read the Bible and chooses to ignore history… well, you get the picture.

Global Governance Controlling Everything

The former UN Under-Secretary-General is calling for a one world currency.

Healthcare rationing is a regular part of the United Kingdom, which has nationalized healthcare in a way Democrats in America want to bring here. Just one example of how well it’s NOT working is this: Thousands of elderly patients are going blind due to eye-surgery rationing.

Green, Nature-Worship Agenda: In London, older cars will be charged for alleged pollution. Estimates are that about 40,000 vehicles will be affected every day.

In Italy: fighting against the global agenda, Mussolini’s great-grandson is running as a candidate in European elections. He said he is not a fascist as was his great grandfather. He said fascism is now something for “historians to study.” Anyone worried about its revival, he said, “is seeing imaginary enemies.” He said, “I see other dangers: The thought police, globalism, the dictatorship of political correctness, uncontrolled immigration a few small financial groups that control everything, Islamic extremism.”

Regarding Britain and Brexit: EU leaders are to meet for an emergency summit in Brussels to decide whether to offer the UK another delay to Brexit. Let’s face it. The EU is trying to make Britain an example of what happens to countries that try to free themselves from the globalist grasp. They’re making it as difficult as possible.

Islamization of the Nations

San Diego, California, parents have prevailed (for now) over the Muslim group CAIR’s indoctrination program in public schools. Hamas-linked CAIR (associated also with Muslim brotherhood, designated as a terrorist organization) is claiming that resistance to their propaganda initiative is a sign of “Islamophobia.” But in reality, this group has no business in public (or private) schools. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department.

The UK is among many countries including Germany, Netherlands and Australia who penalize volunteers who fought ISIS alongside Kurdish allies, meanwhile, a “significant portion” of returned ISIS jihadis are considered no longer to be a security concern. These countries are ever anxious to appease their Muslim populations.`

A London Catholic school hired a Muslim to teach vital GCSE and A-Level lessons to teenagers. Faisal Ahmed was given the green light by the elite teacher training program TeachFirst despite having ‘extreme difficulty with handwriting,’ and problems with reading and understanding ‘written tests.’ TeachFirst didn’t inform the school of Ahmed’s condition. After being suspended, Ahmed quit in anger and is suing the school for constructive dismissal and disability discrimination.

In Germany, the parents of a young boy have been fined from a German court after they kept their child from going to school to avoid a trip to a local mosque.

Traitorous Last Days (2 Timothy 3)

Who are the real traitors here? It’s not him. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested by British police on Thursday after they were invited into the Ecuadorean embassy where he has been holed up since 2012. The Deep State claims such as from the likes of Bush and McCain that he caused harm to US foreign sources is bogus. It was a Guardian journalist, not WikiLeaks, that led to the full unredacted cables leaking to third parties on the web that WikiLeaks published as well — and not before Assange attempted to warn the office of Hillary Clinton, then U.S. Sec of State about the unintended leak of the cables. WikiLeaks had a major impact on the news cycle during the 2016 presidential election, releasing a number of damaging leaks exposing corruption in the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Attorney General William Barr has formed a team to investigate FBI and DOJ shenanigans during the summer before the 2016 election to try to ensure a Clinton victory.

One of the superdelegates Hillary used to rig the primary against Bernie Sanders may be headed to prison. Former United Auto Workers vice president Norwood Jewell became the highest-ranking labor official to plead guilty to violating federal labor law. Jewell admitted to receiving luxury goods and lavish golf trips from the Chrysler executives he was supposed to be negotiating against. Still, “Democrats are keeping someone who’s headed to prison on their leadership team in Michigan, and it shows that corruption is alive and well within their ranks.”

Surprisingly, the editorial board of the Boston Herald published a piece on Monday titled “Democrats and toxic media at their worst,” revealing how top names in the news media purposely twist the president’s words to mislead and divide the public. “The left and its compliant media are willfully reporting false news to the American people,” the Herald’s editors said.

Hackers accessed and posted “a mix of personal and government email addresses, job titles, phone numbers and their postal addresses.” Needless to say, the deliberate targeting of law enforcement in this age of threats and intimidation puts many people in danger.

Hatred of Christianity

A California city is taking a symbolic pro-LGBTQ stand against the Christian-owned Chick-fil-A restaurant. San Jose city council members voted unanimously to hang rainbow flags and pink and blue pro-transgender rights flags outside the Chick-fil-A that’s scheduled to open inside the San Jose International Airport in May. There have been campaigns around the country, including San Antonio, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, to try to prevent new Chick-fil-A locations from opening in their communities.

Hatred of the Jewish People and Israel

Germany gave $426,037 to a Muslim group that calls for Israel’s destruction. They only cut funding after this was exposed.

At a time when much of Africa is strengthening its ties with Israel, the racist and corrupt government of South Africa has chosen to downgrade its ties with Israel, at the behest of the terrorists in the so-called “Palestinian” Authority. It has downgraded its embassy in Israel to a liaison office.

While the “Palestinian” Authority (aka PLO) and Hamas are busy beating up each other’s supporters, pro-“Palestinian” activists on US and Canadian university campuses are busy blaming Israel for “Palestinian” woes. For these alleged activists — who are remarkably passive when it comes to truly assisting “Palestinians” — their protests seem more about hating Israel than anything else. If they really cared about the “Palestinians,” they might stop abusing Israel long enough to notice the abuse that the “Palestinian” leaders inflict on their own people.

Terrorism

German police raided offices belonging to Islamic organizations suspected of financing the “Palestinian” militant group Hamas under the guise of humanitarian aid. The EU designated Hamas to be a terrorist organization.

Apostasy and Doctrines of Devils

For the first time in history, atheists constitute the largest religious group in America. According to the General Social Survey, the number of Americans who have no religion has increased 266% over the past three decades and now account for 23.1% of the population, just barely edging out Catholics and Evangelicals as the nation’s dominant faith. Mainline Protestant churches have suffered the greatest collapse, declining 62.5% since 1982 and now comprising just 10.8% of the US population.

Tunisian popstar Lamiri claims she’s the long-awaited Islamic messiah, al-Mahdi.

The rabidly anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam cult claims to be the Messiah in a newly unearthed rant from February.

Tom Cruise is said to be “considered a deity within Scientology.” Former church member Leah Remini has said, “He is second to David Miscavige — the savior of the free world.” Cruise was seen March 9 at the front of a celebration of the holiest day of the Scientology calendar — L. Ron Hubbard’s March 13 birthday — at the church’s spiritual mecca in Clearwater, Fla.

Christians are called to be strong and courageous. But that’s not what Christian students are being taught on many Christian college campuses today. Too often, they’re taught to fear and to hide behind a false pretense of grace while extending none. Christian writer, speaker and author Matt Walsh was protested by staff and students at Baylor University who didn’t want to hear a biblical truths about abortion, marriage and gender.

Crosses on graves in a cemetery in Italy are being covered up with black cloth during ceremonies involving other religions.

Survivors of sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic nuns are starting to speak out. Read here and here. It should be no surprise if you’ve already read the horrifying reports of physical abuse children have suffered at certain Catholic orphanages by nuns, also bodies of babies and children being found in sewage storage tanks. Examples are here and here.

Pope Benedict is blaming the sexual revolution of the 60s for priests’ sexual abuse in the Catholic church. No, it’s been this way from its beginning. Read “History of Clergy Abuse in the Catholic Church” by Rev. Thomas Doyle. “This is an embarrassing letter,” said Brian Flanagan, professor of theology at Marymount University in VA. “The idea that ecclesial abuse of children was a result of the 1960s, a supposed collapse of moral theology, and ‘conciliarity’ (the Church after the 1962-65 Second Vatican Council) is an embarrassingly wrong explanation for the systemic abuse of children and its cover-up.”

Idol worship: In New York City his week, Catholics lined up to worship a 150-year-old preserved heart of a dead French priest. This ‘heart is on tour and has been to 28 states so far – and will visit schools.

Surveillance Society

Security researchers have discovered a powerful surveillance app first designed for Android devices can now target victims with iPhones. The spy app, found by researchers at mobile security firm Lookout, said its developer abused their Apple-issued enterprise certificates to bypass the tech giant’s app store to infect unsuspecting victims.

In China, it’s being claimed that police are seizing residents’ phones and installing spyware. Offenders are said to be sent to “re-education” camps.

Rise of the Kings of the East

China’s military is already in the Caribbean and in Cuba, apparently to collect signals intelligence from the US. Now they’re moving closer—55 miles east of Palm Beach, Florida on Grand Bahama Island, and there are concerns this facility will become a Chinese naval base. Will the Pentagon have to contend with Chinese warships at Freeport? There’s a “Red Storm Rising” just miles from America’s shores. “In point of fact, the entire hemisphere is on fire,” said Lou Dobbs. “China and Russia are engaging us in almost every quarter in this hemisphere. Russia and China in Venezuela, but China throughout the hemisphere and throughout the Caribbean.”

China is distributing intrusive tools of surveillance and social control throughout Latin America to “surround the US” with potential threats, warns a top senator, Cory Gardner. “China’s goal is to displace the US, and they can do that by wreaking havoc in the Western Hemisphere.”

Wars and Rumors of Wars

Israel is the key to last days prophecy. The main players against Israel are aligned for the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39, and supporting players are aligning.

A number of Iranian forces were reportedly killed in an Israeli airstrike on a military site in Syria in western Hama province overnight Friday-Saturday.

Iranian lawmakers don’t just chant “Death to Israel.” They also chant “Death to America” as they just did when convening Tuesday for an open session of parliament.

As most surely know, Prime Minister Netanyahu was re-elected this week. In a pre-election interview, he said a “Palestinian” state such as the one most people talk about will not be created. He also promised to annex portions of the West Bank territory in Area C, in which all of the Israeli settlements are located. “I will apply sovereignty,” Netanyahu said. It’s the first time since he took office in 2009 that he has used the word “sovereignty” when speaking of Judea and Samaria.

The Palestinian Authority (aka PLO) warned Prime Minister Netanyahu about any attempt to declare its sovereignty over the West Bank, saying it will lead “to a cycle of violence and chaos.” And as we’ve already heard, Syria is livid over the US recognizing sovereignty over the Golan (mountains of Israel -Ezekiel 38-39) and vows to re-conquer it.

Turkey’s President Erdogan said he’s going ahead with the controversial purchase of a Russian air-defense system despite US objections. We should expect nothing less since Turkey will be part of the Russian-Arab invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39).

Two countries (Libya and Sudan) who will be part of the prophesied Ezekiel 38-39 invasion of Israel are at this same time undergoing coup attempts:

 In Libya, Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar launched an invasion to overthrow the internationally-recognized government this week.

Sudan’s armed forces will make an important announcement soon, state TV said on Thursday as troops were deployed in Khartoum amid speculation that a coup attempt was underway against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir after months of protests.

Signs in the Heavens?

Scientists say Earth’s magnetic field is getting significantly weaker, the magnetic north pole is shifting at an accelerating pace, and that a sudden pole shift could potentially cause “trillions of dollars” in damage.
