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)

When You See These Things Begin…

We’re seeing a foretaste of what it will be like for unbelievers left behind to face the tribulation: nation against nation; kingdom against kingdom; wars and rumors of wars; nations in anguish and perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring. Lawlessness, wickedness, and traitors abound; apostasy in the churches is running wild; and hatred of Jews and Christians is rampant.

EXTREME WEATHER

US: A brutal winter storm system that’s been pounding the Pacific Northwest this week is heading east. Winds whipped up the snow north of Seattle, reducing visibility in some spots to almost nothing.

Avalanche Hits California Ski Resort Near Lake Tahoe; 1 Killed, 1 Seriously Injured. At least a foot of snow fell in the 24 hours preceding the avalanche, with higher elevations picking up as much as 2 feet.

Surge of Arctic air to send temperatures plummeting in the Midwest, Northeast. In the wake of a massive storm that brought blizzard conditions to the Plains, damaging freezing rain to the Midwest, and heavy snow to the Great Lakes, wintry conditions will return with a vengeance in the coming days. A northerly wind on the back side of the storm system ushered in a cold, Canadian air mass on Saturday. Areas that picked up accumulating snowfall from the departed storm could have near white-out conditions due to the strong winds, even as precipitation comes to an end.

Pressure Increases on Imperiled Mississippi Dam as Lake Rises Overnight. Heavy rains raised water levels in the Oktibbeha County Lake. Residents near the dam were asked to evacuate as the dam was in “imminent” danger of breaching and flooding 17,500 acres of land. Clay County could also be impacted.

Canada: Crippling Newfoundland Blizzard From Bomb Cyclone Smashes All-Time Daily Snow Record. A state of emergency was declared in St. John’s and other cities, banning vehicles on city streets. St. John’s smashed its all-time daily snowfall record which had stood for over 20 years. Photos showed massive snow drifts blocking doors of homes. This storm was a bomb cyclone, which intensified rapidly once it moved off the coast of New England.

A remarkable satellite presentation of explosive cyclogenesis over the Northwest Atlantic. It will push a severe windstorm and major waves towards Greenland and Iceland over the weekend. Four cyclones showed up on the same satellite image on Friday: along the Northwest US coast, across the Midwest, over the Northwest Atlantic and over the central North Atlantic.

Major floods hit Iran after a year’s worth of rain in 3 days; at least 3 dead and over 20,000 homeless. Thousands of establishments were damaged and hundreds of villages were cut off.

Brutal cold snap brings death toll to at least 170 in Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. Heavy snow, rain, and frigid temperatures continue to trigger avalanches.

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), non-stop heavy rain led to widespread flooding and destruction and broke the highest rainfall record since 1996. One fatality was reported.

Oman hit by 4 months’ worth of rain in one day, severe flash floods and freezing temperatures. Heavy rain triggered flash flooding with temperatures plummeting below freezing; snow in some areas.

Extreme weather sparks snow in EGYPT and blizzards in Greece -‘Crazy winter’ engulfs globe. The weird weather conditions can be attributed to a difference in movement of weather currents. There is usually a low-pressure area in the Arctic which regulates climate in the Northern Hemisphere; however, a strong polar vortex has reversed the circulation of the currents.

Storm Brendan battered Ireland and the United Kingdom on Monday. Brendan underwent rapid intensification (bomb cyclone) before it made landfall on Monday morning, and its remnants still continue.

Tropical Cyclone Claudia affected northwestern Australia with downpours and gusty winds. Heavy rains and thunderstorms lashed parts of Australia’s east coast, dousing some fires but bringing a new threat of flooding to some areas.

‘Severe’ Category 3 Tropical Cyclone Tino Moves Directly Towards Tonga. Two people are reported missing in Fiji and dozens more forced to seek shelter in evacuation centers as the cyclone passed over.

SUN HAPPENINGS

2020: The Sun Will Reach its Lowest Solar Activity in Over 200 Years according to NASA, who says we should prepare for odd or different weather patterns. On Dec. 20, Iceland had one of its largest snow storms with extreme winds. Iceland’s, Europe’s and North America’s weather have historically been tied to sunspot activity of the Sun. [Because, as the global warming whiners don’t want to admit, solar activity affects the weather; and, of course, God controls solar activity, and He can do whatever regardless.]

Magnetic Explosion on Earth’s Doorstep: On Dec. 20, 2015, a magnetic explosion occurred over 3 times closer to Earth than anyone has seen before. The explosion and solar storm delivered over 10 times the energy of the largest US nuclear bomb and about 20 times the energy of a 7.0 earthquake, sparking intense auroras. It’s taken researchers 4 years to wrap their minds around what happened, and results were published this week. This poses a previously overlooked threat to Earth-orbiting satellites.

VOLCANOES

In the Philippines, the Taal volcano erupted January 12, first time since 1977. Authorities urged evacuations after ash spewed 9 miles high (14 kilometers) into the air, prompting warnings that “a hazardous eruption may happen within hours or days.” Authorities also warned of a possible “volcanic tsunami” that can be trigged by falling debris after an eruption, pushing water and generating waves. The fallout has blanketed areas with ash dozens of miles away. The country’s president declared, “It is now a no man’s land.” Multiple new fissures were since observed and magma is building up. Authorities are having a hard time convincing some residents to leave or keep them from returning to rescue belongings and animals – too late for many. A hazardous eruption would affect nearly a million people.

In Japan, the Mt. Shintake volcano erupted last Saturday with no immediate reports of injuries.

New eruption at Fernandina volcano January 12; lava flows descending to the coast – Galapagos, Ecuador. There’s no human population on the island, but its ecosystems host many unique species.

EARTHQUAKES

Puerto Rico: Over 1,280 earthquakes have hit its southern region since Dec. 28, Over two dozen 4.5 or greater. A 5.2 occurred Wednesday morning as quakes continue to hit the island on a daily basis.

Japan: Series of earthquakes offshore this week, including a 5.1 at the coast and 5.0 inside the country.

Indonesia: A strong inland 6.0 earthquake late Saturday night struck the country’s easternmost Papua province. There were no immediate reports of major damage or casualties.

There were a number of quakes in diverse places in the ocean that registered between 5.0 and 5.9.

EPIDEMICS, ILLNESS, PLAGUES, FAMINE

Fecal bacteria In California’s waterways increases with vagrant crisis. San Francisco officials were quick to dispute Trump’s claims. But some of California’s most prized rivers, beaches and streams are indeed contaminated with fecal bacteria that exceed state limits. Now the filth of Democrat social welfare policies is fouling the Sacramento and American rivers, where vagrants have set up tent cities. E. coli levels at beaches are supposed to be 88 or below; anything over 1,000 is supposed to lead to beach closure. But at Discovery Park, numbers went as high as 2419.6 in December. Visitors describe mountains of trash, waste, and needles, hookers, and crazy people screaming obscenities and throwing punches at anyone who came too close.

Meth-related fatalities have increased significantly in Florida. The most recent available records reflect 1,056 meth-related deaths during 2018 – a 23% increase compared to 2017.

Carelessness That Caused Injuries at Six Schools (five elementary schools and one high school). A plane dumped jet fuel over Los Angeles. 60 people on the ground were treated. Policies are supposed to keep this from happening. The plane shouldn’t have taken off overloaded. Also, pilots are supposed to dump fuel at high altitudes, if needed, so it evaporates before hitting the ground.

New Chinese virus ‘will have infected hundreds’. The number of people already infected by the mystery virus emerging in China is far greater than official figures suggest, scientists say. There’ve been 62 (update) confirmed cases, but UK experts estimate it’s closer to 1,700.

Travelers entering the U.S. from Wuhan, China, will be screened for this spreading virus that has left 2 dead [and 3 in critical condition]. They’ll be screened at the 3 largest ports of entry in the U.S.: San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City’s JFK airport. The virus has been reported in Thailand and Japan in people who’ve been to Wuhan. “This is a serious situation,” said Dr. Meissonier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. “We know it is crucial to be proactive and prepared.” Between 60,000 and 65,000 people a year travel from Wuhan to the US.

Locust outbreak, most serious in 25 years, hits East Africa. An “extremely dangerous increase” in locust swarm activity. One swarm measured 60 kilometers (37 miles) long by 40 kilometers (25 miles) wide. The outbreak of desert locusts, the most dangerous locust species, also has affected parts of Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Djibouti and Eritrea; South Sudan and Uganda could be next. The outbreak is making the region’s bad food security situation worse.

LAST DAYS OF LOT RETURNED

Newman Report: College Professor Wants To Make Sex with Children Legal. Classics Professor Thomas Hubbard at University of Texas at Austin calls for lowering age-of-consent laws that protect children from sexual predators. There’s a concerted effort in education and entertainment to normalize pedophilia — one of the final moral taboos still standing in America. As The Newman Report exposed last year, schools in California were caught normalizing child rape as a “sexual orientation” under the guise of teaching “LGBT” history. Hubbard pointed to Ancient Greek pederasty — relationships between men and pubescent boys — as a beneficial example for modern America, saying boys without fathers would especially benefit from sex with grown men. North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) promotes similar arguments.

Hubbard is hardly the first tax-funded “researcher” at a tax-funded university to promote rape of children. As The Newman Report highlighted in 2019, Alfred Kinsey at Indiana University — the father of “sex education” and the sexual revolution — was responsible for rape and sexual torture of thousands of children and babies, all done under the guise of “sex research.” Today, the tax-funded Kinsey Institute continues to promote this wickedness. American universities, engorged on an endless diet of taxpayer dollars, have become centers of perversion, idiocy, and insanity. Legislators should never fund this lunacy. It’s time for parents and young Americans to be much more diligent in choosing a college, if any

110-Year-Old Boy Scout Organization Has Been a Magnet for Tens of Thousands of Pedophiles, Lawsuit Claims. The lawsuit contends that the BSA has known since its early years that it attracted pedophiles as leaders, yet avoided acknowledgement for decades as it kept secret files of men known or suspected of committing sex abuse. The lawsuit notes that BSA submits annual reports to Congress. However, never in 103 years has BSA disclosed that its programs were/are magnets to tens of thousands of pedophiles. BSA’s reports miscast the organization as a bastion of moral authority. Plaintiffs are currently suing in Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.

45-Year-Old Sex Offender Identifies As 8-Year-Old Girl, Declares Child Pornography “Free Speech.” This generation’s obsession with “gender identities” and compelling everyone else to accommodate them has been co-opted by perverts/pedophiles. We’ve seen people identifying as dogs, with full-body suits, leashes, etc., so we shouldn’t be surprised to find a sex offender identifying as an 8-year-old girl to attempt to justify use of child porn. Joseph Gobrick was arrested after officers discovered images of rapes of babies/children up to age 5 on his electronic devices. He’s a convicted sex offender from 2001; and in 2018 was arrested when a 17-year-old girl listed as endangered/missing was found at his home. He’s sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison, but why ever let him out?

Transgender Dolls. We’ve heard about Mattel’s “gender-inclusive” dolls. But there are also dolls in dresses with long hair and penises; a line of trans tweens/teens dolls in dresses with long hair and penises;  trans nesting dolls that start out as a baby girl and progress through “gender confusion,” and end up as a boy;  and a Jazz doll based on the boy on the TV series who “transitioned” into a girl.

Illinois Will Update Birth Certificates to Allow Biological Females to Be Named as the Father, and Vice Versa. This comes after pressure from the pro-LGBT organization Lambda Legal on behalf of a “trans” couple. Myles Brady-Davis is a female who identifies as male, goes by pronouns they/them, and desires to be named the father on the birth certificate. Precious Brady-Davis is a male who identifies as female and is called the baby’s mother. The Chicago-Sun Times described them in glowing terms: “When Myles Brady Davis found out he was pregnant, he rejoiced with his wife, Precious. They held hands, they teared up. They sank to the living room floor and melted into each other, just savoring the moment.”

Facebook says ‘denying existence’ of trans identities on platform is hate speech. Mirroring Twitter’s update forbidding “misgendering” on the platform, Facebook updated its terms to say “denying the existence” of self-determined gender identities will be considered “hate speech.” So, denying existence of a potentially unlimited number of gender identities can result in a permanent account ban.

Michigan attorney general using so-called ‘hate crime unit’ to harass pro-marriage group. Dana Nessel is acting in concert with Michigan Dept of Civil Rights and Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC, a left-wing anti-Christian organization, published its annual report, listing 31 so-called “hate” groups in Michigan. Listed in that group as “ANTI-LGBT” was Church Militant, a media organization that advocates marriage as instituted by God is for one man and one woman.

Gay Man Who Protested Drag Queen Story Hour Commits Suicide After Social Media Mob Attack, Left Blames ‘Internalized Homophobia.’ After his group appeared at Drag Queen Story Hour to protest, he was harassed and threatened by a storm of angry people on social media. He was said to be SSA, same-sex attracted but didn’t act on it, and was also against same-sex marriage. There were 2 Drag Queen entertainers at the children’s event: One goes by Queenie, and one goes by Diamond “Good-Rim,” a disgusting sexual reference I cannot repeat. Diamond Good-Rim is the winner of an Australian X Award for Adult Entertainment. We can just imagine what that entails. At least one Australian politician called the protestors against the event “ratbags.” Instead of blaming the harassment from leftists for Gavin’s suicide, they blamed “internalized homophobia.”

DEPOPULATION AGENDA

Selection bias and abortion propaganda from CNN. A factually misleading, agenda-driven piece from CNN asserts that almost no women feel regret five years after having an abortion.

Art Exhibit in New York to Benefit Planned Parenthood’s political agenda titled ‘Abortion is Normal.’ The Abortion Is Normal website, a Bloomberg highlight video, and a Daily Beast report display and describe several examples of the event’s “art,” much of which is disgusting. Downtown for Democracy organization states on its website it has “transformed our community’s cultural influence into political power.” This scene especially brought to mind the following scriptures of the pattern of the last stage in the fall of nations:

“The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves… children [those not fit for leadership] are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people” (Isaiah 3:9, 12-13).

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men [mankind] shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers… unholy, Without natural affection… For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:1-3, 6-7).

LAST DAYS TRAITORS: A FUNGUS AMONG US

The liberal WikiHow site has an article teaching children how to scheme against parents and stage fake cover stories to get vaccines that even the U.S. govt. admits cause thousands of injuries, hospitalizations and even deaths every year (VAERS.HHS.gov and HRSA.gov). The article warns children that their parents might “fall into rabbit holes of conspiracy theories” about vaccines, falsely implying that all evidence of vaccine dangers/injuries is a “conspiracy.” The article claims anti-vaccine parents might “abuse you if they learned you disobeyed them.”

WHO Chief Scientist caught on video overtly contradicting public propaganda videos that falsely claim vaccines work “without risks.” Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization, has been caught lying about vaccine safety. She claims “Vaccines are very safe” and can “prevent disease without risks.” But in a leaked WHO vaccine summit video, she said, “we really don’t have very good safety monitoring systems” and “learned about adverse events only after the drug’s been licensed and introduced into the population. So I think that risk is always there…”

Two Arizona School Districts Promoting Racial Divisions and so-called “Social Justice.” “Essentially, students and teachers are being taught anti-white, anti-Christian hate. Students are taught to lecture adults about their biases. They’re taught to be social justice activists.” The programs also teach “intersectionality” – “merely a replacement for Marxism, and very similar to it.”

The left blamed Trump for everything connected to Hurricane Maria in 2017, but guess what?! A video that has now been removed showed a warehouse in Puerto Rico filled with thousands of cases of water and other much-needed supplies from 2017 that never made it to the public. With this new discovery, Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vazquez dismissed Carlos Acevedo, director of Puerto Rico’s emergency management agency. “There are thousands of people who have made sacrifices to bring help to the south, and it is unforgivable that resources have been kept in a warehouse,” she said.

Bannon Accuses Pelosi, Schiff And Mainstream Media Of Colluding On so-called 11th Hour Impeachment Bombshells. “This is all total hearsay from a guy trying to talk his way into a lesser sentence because he’s already indicted. It’s so obvious what he’s trying to do.” Adding to the collusion/ ‘slow walk’ theory is completion of a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) requested by Democrat senator Chris Van Hollen, which claims President Trump’s pause of US aid to Ukraine violated the law. Of note, virtually every previous administration has received a similar nastygram from the GAO – just not the day after directly related impeachment articles were delivered to the Senate.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drew criticism for handing out commemorative pens — with her name on them — after signing a resolution to transmit two articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate for trial. She couldn’t contain her “glee” as she carried them. “Pelosi’s souvenir pens served up on silver platters to sign the sham articles of impeachment,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham tweeted in response.

Bernie Campaigner Predicts Violence at DNC: Police Will Get ‘F***ing Beaten’. Project Veritas released an undercover video Tuesday showing a field organizer for Bernie Sanders warning that Milwaukee, host of this year’s Dem National Convention, will “burn” and police will be “beaten” if Sanders loses the nomination. “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f***g Milwaukee will burn,” says Sanders organizer Kyle Jurek. “It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when the police push back on that, other cities will f***g [explode].” In the discussion, it’s said that Trump supporters should be put in gulags to de-Nazify them.

The second undercover video released this week shows Sanders field operative exposed as a radical eco-fascist, demanding mass killings of conservatives to save “the entire human race” and “planet Earth.” These communist-leaning Leftists have ties to Antifa and are very often active members of the DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) a front group for hard-core communism.

Judicial Watch is not intimidated by Adam Schiff. It’s suing him in federal court for documents on his illicit subpoenas for phone records of Trump’s lawyer and other innocent Americans. But the Senate seems to be afraid to ask him questions over his abuse of President Trump.

People Are Dying in Racial Violence So Democrats Can Win Elections. The Dem Party is promoting racial violence. New York is a prime example; Jews are targeted and Dem leaders defend perpetrators’ actions. Every 2020 Democrat has appeared at the National Action Network despite its ugly history. Sharpton had been the central figure in the Crown Heights Pogrom; he has a history of anti-Semitic slurs, and the NAN has blood on its hands. National Action Network has the unique distinction of being the destination of choice for every major Democrat.

Democrats are siding with a genocidal terror state. America is in a national security crisis situation with Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. And Democrats are goading Iranians into attacking American troops so they can gain a “Trump has blown up the world” talking point. In effect, the Democrats are actively colluding with terror-state Iran. House Dems refused to formally support anti-government protesters in Iran or condemn the Islamic regime’s downing of the Ukrainian jetliner. Dem leaders and the media are blaming Trump for Iran downing the plane. This is beyond despicable!

Trump Versus Dem Mythmakers. Excerpt from Carolyn Glick: “To protect and preserve their 40-year old delusion-based policy, Trump’s domestic opponents are effectively supporting the Iranian regime against the US. And as they see it, they have no choice. They are in a race against time. The more successful Trump’s reality-based policies towards Iran on the one hand and Israel on the other are, the harder it will be for the foreign policy establishment to restore their delusion-based policies when he leaves power. Given the stakes, we can assume their attempts to clip Trump’s wings and debase him will increase in intensity, churlishness and irrationality as time goes by and as his successes mount.”

The duplicity of U.S. progressive students. Students in Iran are more loyal to America than many students on U.S. college campuses. Videos show Iranian students walking past American and Israeli flags placed on the ground by authorities precisely for them to tread on. The protesters expressed fury at the few who stepped on the flags. They’ve maintained free and independent thinking despite existing under a brainwashing regime. Not so here with leftist indoctrination that has brainwashed many students. Hatred of the US and Israel has become part of the identity for so-called “progressives.” They claim to support human rights yet are quick to slam Israel, and now have turned their backs on the brave protesters in Iran who are risking their lives to demonstrate against Iran’s black-hearted regime.

Videos: Protestors in Iran. ‘We are ashamed of our stupid Supreme Leader!’ ‘No honor! No honor! Soleimani is a murderer and his Supreme Leader is stupid!’

Dem agenda: Virginia bill would allow birth control, vaccines for kids without parental consent. The bill is sponsored by Sen. Barbara Favola, Planned Parenthood-endorsed leftist whose website touts her work as a “lifelong pro-choice advocate” and “LGBTQ Rights” activism. For the first time in 26 years, Nov. elections gave Dems control of both chambers of the Va. legislature and governorship. They’ve promised to implement a progressive agenda of a variety of liberal issues, including abortion on demand. In Va., minors need parent permission to be given Tylenol in school. Yet, if this bill is approved, and a child has serious side effects from a vaccine or birth control, parents’ lack of knowledge of the shot/drug having been given could prevent them and ER doctors from effectively treating the child.

Former CIA Spook Warns Dems, Deep State “Getting Desperate” To Stop Trump. Former CIA Officer and counter-terrorism expert Kevin Shipp says “they want to get rid of Trump because for the first time in their careers, they can be prosecuted for what they have done… That’s why John Brennan and others are coming out as mocking birds on CNN and MSNBC and constantly attacking the President.” Shipp said, “Evidence is already there to pass an indictment on Hillary Clinton and some of the others. So, there is not even an investigation in that regard… Barr’s investigation is now a criminal investigation. They are trying to get a hold of Brennan’s (former CIA Director) emails/correspondence, through subpoenas… and it looks like they are in the middle of that now.”

SAY WHAT? Michael Bloomberg Calls California a ‘Model’ for the Rest of the Country. He says California’s efforts on “climate change,” gun control, and criminal justice reform were second to none, and that the rest of the nation should follow their lead. He says California would serve as a model for running the country should he become president.

Also, Michael Bloomberg says, “I’m going to spend all of my money to get rid of Trump.” Bloomberg, is one of the top-ten richest people in the US with an estimated $56 billion net worth. Hey, Mikey, why not spread that wealth around instead; after all, that’s what your Party claims to want to do. Although, those of us with discernment realize this won’t really happen if the leftist Dems get control of everything. They’ll hold onto their riches while enslaving everyone else to government control. That’s how it always ends with Marxist-Socialist-Communist regimes.

US hospitals filed suit last month over Trump’s demand for transparency in prices they charge patients for healthcare services. Also, In July, a federal judge sided with drugmakers by striking down this administration’s rule that would have forced pharmaceutical companies to include wholesale prices of their drugs in TV ads. “Hospitals should be ashamed that they aren’t willing to provide American patients the cost of a service before they purchase it,” said Caitlin Oakley, spokeswoman for the Dept of Health and Human Services, adding that the administration will continue to fight for price transparency.

U.S. warned Britain not to use Huawei (from China) in 5G network, presenting new evidence about security risks and branding it “madness.” Did they mention health and safety risks of 5G technology?

LIBERAL LEFTISTS WANT AN ORWELLIAN TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT

Environmentalists Want to Take Your Food, Your Home, And Your Children. If you’re keeping track, you can’t have kids, a house, a glass of wine, a burger, or anything. The real question is what in your life will environmentalists allow you to keep? The answer is nothing. The environmentalists claim that if they’re not allowed to have their way, the planet will be destroyed. And if they are allowed to have their way, they will take everything from us that makes life worth living.

YouTube blocks links to texts of Virginia anti-gun Bills. Liberal left lawmakers seek their own safety at the expense of the citizenry, and believe law-abiding citizens are the unsafe elements of society. The Second Amendment exists to secure our own rights and our own safety against the very tyrants who believe we are the unsafe ones.

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. said civil disobedience may be in order if Virginia’s Democrat-controlled legislature passes a series of gun-restricting measures. “You don’t mess with people’s guns in this part of the state, he said. They (Democrats) don’t know what they’ve gotten into and they’re going to find out the hard way, I’m afraid.”

Northam Declares State of Emergency in Virginia, Claiming “Armed Militia Groups Plan To Storm The Capitol” during Jan. 20 “Lobby Day.” Guns have been a major focus of Lobby Day for years, with groups on either side holding rallies. Citing violence in Charlottesville in 2017 at a completely different rally, Northam claims there are credible threats that “armed militia groups plan to storm the Capitol” during Monday’s rally. He says a substantial number are expected to come from outside the Commonwealth, may be armed, and have violence, rioting, and insurrection in mind. The leftist Dems are deliberately inciting this whole thing to further their agenda. We know we can’t put anything past the Demo Party these days. Also, read this article: Blame Game Set for Va. Gov. Northam’s Gun-Free Kill Zone.” It’s a Dem setup to actually increase the likelihood of violence. The same tactic was employed in Charlottesville.

GPS jamming expected in Southeast during military exercise. 64% of 1,239 pilots who responded to an inquiry noted concern about the impact of interference on their use of GPS and ADS-B [Automatic dependent surveillance—broadcast] during these exercises. Take a look at this video. “Feds seizing night vision tubes.” Besides the danger to commercial planes in the air, some wonder if the timing of these exercises is related to the “Lobby Day” event in Richmond, VA. Maybe so; maybe not.

VA State Senator Goes Public 72 Hours Before Rally: ‘We Are Being Set Up.’ Senator Amanda Chase of District 11 said, “The Governor, using the media has already set the stage for this to happen,” Chase wrote. “He has already laid the groundwork to make the entire movement look like insurrection.” It’s not just militia members and those wearing camouflage who have reason to worry.

According to Chase, even some military veterans have been flagged as potential threats. Despite Northam’s emergency gun ban, it’s unclear how many of the tens of thousands of expected rally attendees will obey his decree. The Virginia Citizens Defense League and Gun Owners of America, two groups behind the massive rally, appealed all the way to the Virginia Supreme Court, where Northam’s gun ban was upheld on Friday. Hopefully, violence can be avoided. But with many rallygoers almost certainly unwilling to bend on their right to bear arms and Northam seemingly intent on enforcing his order with state and local police, we can only wait and see—and pray.

BORDER DISORDER

A Baltimore church hired an Illegal alien as their bus driver. He’s now charged with 19 counts of child molestation of a child who rode to church with her family in the church van he drove. “Police arrested Jose Argueta, 44, illegal alien from El Salvador. He sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl on four occasions and took pornographic images of her during several of those incidents since mid-December. Glen Burnie (Baltimore suburb) has seen a massive influx of Central Americans in recent years, as has Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. Argueta had a history of traffic violations and a DUI, yet had a valid trucking license. How was he able to remain in the country and openly drive for a church? The entire purpose of the 1986 amnesty deal was to make it illegal for someone here unlawfully to work. This alleged crime was therefore 100% preventable.”

Expansion of Brazil’s largest criminal organization, First Command of the Capital (CCP), into foreign lands has gained strength in recent years. Rooted in prisons for 26 years, it’s now present in South America and Europe, and evidence shows foreigners were baptized by the faction in Spain, Italy and US.

HELLYWOOD HAPPENINGS

Alec Baldwin blasted Trump supporters on Monday for what he described as the “colossal destruction of everything that matters” in America. Yet, the opposite is true.

APOSTASY AND DOCTRINES OF DEMONS

Disney introduces kids to world of demons, witchcraft in new ‘The Owl House’ show. The cartoon series premiered January 10. Disney says the series follows teenage girl Luz, who discovers a portal to a demon-town realm where humans are not well-liked, so she disguises herself to fit in at witch school.” Luz takes up residence with Eda the Owl Lady, “the most powerful witch on Boiling Iles.” Luz says, “Someday, I’m going to be just like her.” The original pitch (for the show) was ‘girl hangs out with witch in hell.’ The art director, Ricky Cometa, said when the show’s creator Dana Terrace first approached him, she said “we’re trying to make this demon realm a part of Disney.” Cometa said, “We really wanted to make this demon realm feel like home, and just had to figure out how to do it.”

Under the Rome Dome: A circus group with scantily-clad dancers entertained Pope Francis in his reptile-shaped auditorium. But this isn’t the first time; research shows other similar performances.

Catholic bishops call on West to recognize Palestine. Israel gave away Gaza, and look what happened? The terrorist Hamas runs it now. Israel is not to blame for the plight of the people in Gaza. Hamas is. God gave Israel to the Jews. The Muslims have many nations, but they’re not satisfied. It boils down to jealousy and hatred and a desire to destroy Israel. The RCC is going against God with this call; but the RCC holds its “doctrines of men” to be more important.

Methodists not the only ones deviating from Scripture. It’s everywhere in the mainline churches. “The concepts promoted are “code-speak for [so-called] progressive ideas. But we’ve got to remember… the message of Christianity is not social revisionism and socialism: the message of the gospel is salvation through Jesus alone.

“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it” (Matthew 7:24-27).

Max Lucado’s Glowing Praise of pro-gay feminist Jen Hatmaker: What it Means and Why it Matters. So many are in error these days and moving to the left. I don’t agree with every single person the author of the site reporting this endorses either, but looking for a site that Bible-adhering believers can trust completely these days is almost like looking for a needle in a haystack. That said, the article is worth reading. Lucado, who, many may be surprised to find, supports pastors that he shouldn’t. The Gospel Coalition is moving left. The Southern Baptist Convention is falling in with that ideology. The bottom has dropped out in all mainline churches. We shouldn’t be surprised, as we’re warned about apostasy in the last days. Unity with those who embrace unbiblical values is wrong. Period.

In Panama: 7 bodies found in a burial pit as religious sect carried out exorcism rituals. At an improvised “church” where a little-known new religious sect known as so-called “New Light of God,” they were performing a ritual with people held against their will and tortured. The rites were aimed at killing them if they didn’t repent their sins. The rites had already resulted in deaths. A freshly dug grave containing 5 children, their pregnant mother, and a 17-year-old female neighbor were found.

HATRED OF CHRISTIANITY AKA HATRED OF GOD

Christians see ‘alarming’ trend worldwide as China builds ‘blueprint of persecution.’ A Chinese pastor described fear and intimidation Christians endure under the Communist government. “The Chinese government has now placed severe restrictions/policies on house churches, asking neighbors to spy on one another, pressuring teachers and college professors to betray and sign a statement to denounce their faith and do the same to students,” Pastor Jian Zhu said. Christian persecution has continued to spread around the world. 260 million Christians face high levels of persecution.

HATRED OF JEWS AND ISRAEL AKA HATRED OF GOD

Four Jews hospitalized after antisemitic mob rampages in Uman, Ukraine. According to witnesses, the Ukrainians were running through the city with knives and clubs, looking for Jews. Uman is important for many Jews who travel there yearly on a pilgrimage to the grave of Rabbi Nachman, founder of the Breslover Hassidic sect. However, there have been tensions with Jewish pilgrims and locals. In October, locals vandalized an area near the grave with graffiti of Hitler. In 2016, Rabbi Nachman’s grave was vandalized with a severed pig’s head. These incidents reflect a rising trend of antisemitism worldwide.

In Manhattan, New York, video shows man hanging large swastika in subway station. This incident comes amid a disturbing spike in anti-Semitic acts in the New York area.

ISLAMIZATION OF THE NATIONS

Investigators With ICE, FBI Finally Reviewing Criminal Allegations Against Ilhan Omar. Omar is the most anti-American and anti-Semitic Democrat in Congress. She appears to be under investigation since she may have committed “a breathtaking number of possible immigration-related felonies.”

Jeopardy game show refuses to accept ‘Palestine’ as answer. A contestant guessed Palestine as the location of the Church of the Nativity. The answer was correctly declared wrong. The next contestant answered “Israel,” which judges accepted. Needless to say, this angered pro-“Palestinian” activists.

England’s Muslim Population Tops 3 Million, Exceeds Census Populations of Wales, Northern Ireland. The Muslim population in England alone is thought have reached around 3,092,000 by 2016, greater than total populations, including Muslims and all other minority groups, recorded for Wales (3,063,456) or Northern Ireland (1,810,863) in the 2011 census.

France, the “Budding Islamic Republic.” Yves Thréard, deputy editor at the newspaper Le Figaro, said, “Not a month goes by… without a murderous attack with the cry of ‘Allahu Akbar’ taking place on our soil…. But what is the point of fighting the effects of Islamism if we do not tackle the origins of this ideology of death? On that front, however, denial continues to compete with naiveté.”

Several hundred Muslim worshipers gathered for prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque aka the Temple Mount and began to cause disturbances. Hamas had called for Muslims to protest so-called Israeli violations. “This peaceful campaign is a message to the Israeli occupation and a warning that “Palestinian” holy sites are a red line,” Hamas said. Peaceful? Not. In truth, Islam’s two most holy sites are in Mecca and Medina. Their constant claims against Israel are “taqiyya,” lying for the cause of Islam.

TERRORISM

Over a dozen Saudi servicemen training at US military installations will be expelled from the US after a review that followed the deadly shooting last month at a Naval Air Station in Florida. The Saudis in question aren’t accused of aiding the Saudi Air Force lieutenant who killed three American sailors, but some are said to have connections to extremist movements.

News sources are reporting that Israeli intelligence helped locate Iranian terrorist leader Soleimani before he was killed by an American airstrike in Iraq.

CIVIL UNREST

According to Verisk Maplecroft, a global risk and strategic consulting firm, the dramatic surge in protests in 2019 has swept up a quarter of countries in its tide and sent unprepared governments across all continents reeling. According to latest data and forecasts, the turmoil is set to continue unabated in 2020. Maplecroft predicts that 75 out of the 125 countries in its forecasting database will see an increase in civil unrest during the next six months. The number of countries rated extreme risk has also jumped by 66.7%; from 12 in 2019 to 20 by early 2020.

Iranian security forces fired live rounds and tear gas at protesters. Video this week shows blood trails and people fleeing. In November’s protests, over 1,000 protesters were killed and thousands more were injured and arrested. Also, Iranian authorities arrested the person who uploaded the video showing two Iranian missiles fired at the Ukrainian plane. The first missile disabled the plane’s transponder before the second missile struck. The video was filmed by a camera on a building four miles away from an Iranian military site. Iran’s leaders are just mad they got caught in a lie.

Trump tweet in Farsi is ‘the most liked Persian tweet’ in history of Twitter. Last Saturday, protesters in Iran took to the streets in fury, calling for Ayatollah Khamenei to step down after Iran admitted shooting down a Ukraine airliner on which dozens of Iranian citizens were also traveling. President Trump sent out a tweet in Farsi, saying he stands with their efforts, which very quickly earned over 200,000 likes.

Former Shah of Iran, Reza Pahlavi, said the “beginning of the end” of the Iranian regime has started. He stated that the recent protests in Iran are different than previous demonstrations.

In Lebanon, anti-government protestors have returned to the streets, burning tires and blocking highways. Tear gas was fired at them, and they responded with rocks. Arrests have been made. Samer al-Khoury, a 29-year-old protester, said the protesters were giving politicians 48 hours to form a new government. “We need solutions,” he said. “The street is angry because some people are poorer than others; some people are dying in hospitals; some people don’t have food on their table.”

In Socialist Venezuela, the crisis continues. There was a surge of aggression and violence this week before a new attempt by Juan Guaido and the opposition majority to meet at the headquarters of the Parliament.

WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS

Israel concerned over renewed violence on Gaza border. Gaza factions are seeking to increase cross-border violence, as negotiations for a long-term understanding with Israel stall. The report emerges only a day after four rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli communities, and an incendiary balloon was also sent across the border. The rocket launches were attributed to an independent faction of the Islamic Jihad and came after three weeks of relative calm imposed by Hamas. Israel’s IDF carried out strikes against Hamas targets in response since they’re the ruling party in Gaza. Considering that the “Palestinian” Authority aka PLO is upset that Israel and Hamas were negotiating a truce, one wonders if they didn’t incite this faction to fire the rockets.

The Iran Plan

As it turns out, the Iran rocket attack on an Iraqi military base this month injured 11 US service members. They were flown out of the base and treated for concussion symptoms.

Iran Under Extreme Pressure. What Will its Leaders Do? With Germany and France now onboard, opposing how Iran appeared to tear up the 2015 agreement, Iran is under pressure. Russia is distracted with the crisis in Libya. Iran’s other interlocutors may not get it out of the jam it is in.

Iran’s secret underground ‘missile city’ unveiled. An Iranian news agency released images of underground “missile cities” which hold hundreds of missiles and rockets ready-to-fire.

Israeli Intel: Iran Will Have Enough Enriched Uranium for Nuke by Year’s End. HOWEVER, Israel’s IDF does not believe Iran possesses a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead at this time and would need at least two years to develop such capabilities. President Trump said, “As long as I am President of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.” Israel’s PM Netanyahu has said the same.

On January 9: On the Syria-Iraq border, eight people were killed in airstrikes against Iranian militias. The target is believed to have been an Iranian weapons shipment to Hezbollah. Israel is being blamed for the strikes. On January 14: An airstrike on Iranian-aligned targets in Syria allegedly carried out by the Israeli Air Force killed at least three Iranian militia or loyalists; an unspecified number were injured. Israel cannot stand by and watch as Iran expands its plan to wipe out the Jewish state.

At least 90 dead in Iranian-backed Houthi attack on Yemen base. Iran-aligned Houthi rebels attacked a military training camp with ballistic missiles and drones.

GOG HOG

The Rise of Gog? Putin Positions Himself to Influence Russia For Life. The entire Russian government led by former Russian PM Medvedev resigned after Putin’s speech on constitutional reform. Medvedev said, this was “to give President Vladimir Putin room to carry out the changes he wants to make to the constitution.” Medvedev stated the constitutional reforms presented would make significant changes to the country’s balance of power, so “the government in its current form has resigned.” “All further decisions will be taken by the president,” Medvedev added. The move is intended, according to many, for Putin to retain power after the end of his presidency in 2024. The former KGB operative has been in power over 20 years, longer than any Russian or Soviet leader since Stalin.

In Syria, at least 18 civilians are reported to have died in air strikes that hit a market and an industrial zone in the rebel-held city of Idlib this week. A monitoring group said Russian and Syrian government planes carried out the attacks. The strikes happened despite a ceasefire brokered earlier this month by Russia and Turkey. SOHR said children and rescue workers were among the casualties.

In Libya, one of the countries prophesied to be in the last days Battle of Ezekiel 38-39 along with Russia, Turkey and Iran, etc., the two sides in Libya’s civil war accused the other of breaking a ceasefire within hours of it taking effect after pressure from backers, Russia and Turkey.

Libya’s Haftar accepts Putin’s invitation to visit Russia. “Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog… I will bring thee forth [from the north parts and uttermost north], and all thine army… Persia Ethiopia, and Libya with them… Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands… And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days… I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord” (See Ezekiel 38, also Ezekiel 39). *These nations that will come against Israel are said to represent modern-day nations of Russia and the “-istan” nations, Iran, Turkey, Sudan and Libya.

Article asks: Could Syria Cause Russia and Israel to Go to Nuclear War? And will the US get involved? The answers are in the Bible for all to see if they’d just take a look: Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39.

“PEACE” PLAN

For first time, Saudi Arabia is welcoming Israeli tourists. Watch the report at this link.

Jordan’s King Abdullah warns that by Israel annexing parts of the West Bank, hopes for a two-state solution and “Palestinian” state would quickly come to an end. He said it could be summed up as “one state turning its back on its neighborhood, perpetuating divisions among peoples and faiths worldwide.” He warned the European Parliament against one-state and says failure to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict endangers world peace.

CONCLUSION

In reading current events, we see that we are close to the tribulation. End-times prophesied events have converged as never before. The birth pangs have begun that will, of course, intensify during the 7-year tribulation, known as “the time of Jacob’s trouble” or Daniel’s 70th week. We must with urgency try to bring as many into the fold while we still can. The rapture of the true church, the bride of Christ, before the “time of Jacob’s trouble” begins, cannot be far away.

And they [the disciples] asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? [Jesus gave them the signs, then] “he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled” (Luke 21:7, 29-32).

 

13 Jan 2020

Good Grief! “Can You Feel It Comin’ In The Air Tonight? Oh, Lord!”

I’m reminded of words to the Phil Collins song quoted in the title above. I couldn’t decide whether to show extreme weather events first, or earthquakes, or wars and rumors of wars, traitors, etc. So much to pray for and, it seems, so little time.

EXTREME WEATHER

Storms sweep Southern U.S. and the Midwest as death toll rises to 11. Severe storms and tornadoes sweeping across southern portions of the U.S. and up into the Midwest were blamed for deaths of at least 11 people, including two first responders, as high winds, tornadoes and unrelenting rain battered large swaths of the country.

In Israel, historic flooding has killed 7 people. A pair of slow-moving storms has caused heavy rain and flooding for two weeks, breaking a 51-year-old record. Since it began taking official rain measurements 80 years ago, such large quantities of rain have been measured in northern Israel only twice. A 76-year-old record was also broken in southern Israel where 122 mm. fell (nearly 5 inches). Damages total 1.5 billion. And the rains were expected to continue into the weekend.

A violent windstorm pushes into Ireland and Scotland through Monday as yet another monster cyclone develops over the North Atlantic. North Atlantic doesn’t want to stop this winter – wave after wave is developing intense surface cyclones and powerful windstorms. Another violent windstorm is expected to push towards western Europe, affecting Ireland and Scotland with extremely severe winds through Sunday night and Monday. Major swell and high waves potentially being up to 15 meters (16 ½ feet) will push towards the coastal western Ireland and Scotland as well.

Severe weather in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, etc. Residents of the Saudi Arabian province of Tabuk shared stunning scenes of rare and heavy snowfall over the desert kingdom that started on Thursday night. During the same period, severe weather struck parts of the Middle East, with rain in the UAE, hailstorms in Alexandria, Egypt, and rain and snowstorms in Lebanon and Syria.

In Turkey, at least two people have died due to severe weather; strong winds and heavy rains have battered the country for days, triggering flooding and landslides. Approximately 165mm (6 ½ inches) of rain fell in 24 hours in Mersin province; also heavy snow fell in higher elevations.

In Normally Balmy Bangladesh: Yet another round of record-breaking low temperatures that claimed at least 50 lives in December. Since Nov. 1 the country has been experiencing cold spells that citizens there are not prepared to handle. The country experienced its lowest recorded temperature in several decades on Monday. The mercury plunged to 2.6 degrees C (less than 37 F) in some parts of Bangladesh, well below average. The Met Office forecasts further cold spells, particularly a severe one by the end of January.

Torrential rains affecting Angola since January 3 caused widespread destruction and left at least 41 people dead.

Good grief, Australia! Mega fire in one part, cyclone in another part, and a massive dust storm that swept the whole continent.

In Australia, Thousands forced to evacuate as new ‘megafire’ erupts amid fierce winds. High temperatures climbed into the middle 40s C (109-118 F) across interior locations of New South Wales. 28 people have died in the bushfires, and countless animals.

Australia Bushfires: Arsonists fueling crisis as arson arrest toll hits 183. Swinburne University professor James Ogloff said about 50% of bushfires were lit by arsonists. “They’re interested in seeing and setting fire, and often the information around how fires burn and accelerate excites them.”

Tropical Cyclone Blake: In Australia, while the dangerous fires continue to make global headlines this week, the opposite side of the country is under a different weather threat. Tropical Cyclone Blake developed this past weekend, making landfall as a Category 1 cyclone. It then weakened into a tropical rainstorm. However, flooding rainfall was said to remain a serious risk into Friday.

In Australia another storm in the north. A tropical low moved over the Northern Territory through the middle of the week and brought a broad area of heavy rain and thunderstorms to the region. As of late Friday night, widespread rainfall totals of 100-150 mm (4-6 inches) have been reported in the area. In Darwin, 110 mm (4.33 inches) of rain has fallen since Thursday. Farther east, 225 mm (9 inches) of rain has been reported in Jabiru. The risk for flash flooding across the western coasts of Northern Territory will continue into the weekend as rain and thunderstorms remain in the forecast as the storm moves away from the coast.

Massive dust storm across Australia extends almost the total width of the continent. “It was just like someone had put a piece of red cellophane over the Sun,” said Sarah Cameron from Bollon. “There was no wind, so it was just slowly creeping in and was quite eerie,” she described. “We have had many dust storms come through in this crippling drought, but this would have to be the worst of them all.”

EARTHQUAKES

Puerto Rico was hit by a series of large earthquakes this week: on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. One person was killed and 9 injured; hundreds of homes and businesses damaged or destroyed. The 6.4 quake on Tuesday is the island’s worst in a century. President Trump declared an emergency, freeing up federal funds. The USGS said the latest earthquake could be part of a sequence, which could mean larger and potentially damaging earthquakes in the future. There have been more than 950 earthquakes and aftershocks recorded in Puerto Rico since New Year’s Eve, though many were weak and could not be felt. More than 500, however, have been of magnitude 2 or higher. More than 2,000 people are in shelters, nearly 1 million without power, and hundreds of thousands without water. Many sleep outside in fear.

2 Earthquakes Hit Near Iranian Nuclear Power Plant Hours After Missile Strike on US Forces in Iraq, and the Ukrainian Plane Crash in Iran. A 4.9 and a 4.5-magnitude aftershock a half-hour later. There were no reports of damage at the facility, but seven people were injured, including four who were hospitalized. A 5.1 hit the area less than two weeks ago.

A 6.2 quake hit off the coast of Indonesia on Tuesday. A 6.0 struck off the coast of Papua, New Guinea, on Tuesday.  A 6.3 quake hit Siberia in Russia on Thursday.

VOLCANOES

Mexico’s active volcano Popocatépetl erupted Thursday, spewing ash high into the air and oozing lava.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory raised the alert level for Mount Shishaldin to code red due to ongoing eruptions that continue to intensify. This level of alert means that a major volcanic eruption is imminent, underway, or suspected with hazardous activity both on the ground and in the air.

EPIDEMICS

Drugs

The House in Congress is dragging its feet on critical legislation needed to deal with the deadliest opioid fueling the US drug overdose crisis. During the last few years of the Obama administration, drug overdose deaths began skyrocketing and have climbed steeply to over 70,000 a year – more Americans than were killed during the entire Vietnam War. The surge is now being driven by the especially deadly synthetic opioid called fentanyl. As much as 80 times more powerful than heroin, only a few grains of this chemical compound are enough to cause a fatal overdose. Unfortunately, legal prohibitions on the various forms of fentanyl expire next month unless Congress reauthorizes them. If Congress fails to act, illegal labs in Mexico and China stand ready to flood the US with what would be a legalized poison. There is broad bipartisan support for reauthorizing the fentanyl ban, but House leadership, despite the looming deadline, is blocking the measure.

Illinois pot shops can’t keep up with demand after legalizing recreational use. Less than a week later, the number of buyers strained supplies, forcing several dispensaries to shut down due to product shortages.

Viruses

A mysterious pneumonia outbreak causes panic in China just weeks before an influx of visitors is slated to travel around China for Lunar New Year (named Year of the Rat), 59 people have been infected. Seven are in critical condition. Scientists have discovered that it’s a new strain of coronavirus.

In the Congo, the number of people killed by a measles epidemic has passed 6,000 according to the World Health Organization. The WHO says it’s the world’s largest and fastest moving with 310,000 suspected measles cases reported since the start of 2019.

A woman from the Congo died Dec. 25, a day after crossing the border into the US, after complaining of abdominal pain and vomiting. Other articles say she died of kidney failure. These are all symptoms of Ebola, but it’s being said that her “papers” said she had a previous medical condition. A person can be infected with Ebola for more than a week before symptoms show up. Why are they letting people in from the Congo when there’s an outbreak of Ebola there?

INIQUITY (LAWLESSNESS; WICKEDNESS) SHALL ABOUND

The office of the inspector general (OIG) of Chicago Public Schools (CPS) opened 458 cases in 2019 that involved alleged sexual misconduct of CPS staff against students The OIG’s report “resulted in 155 temporary or permanent CPS personnel actions during Fiscal Year 2019. Among the sexual misconduct cases opened, 37 involved penetration, 46 involved groping and fondling, and 64 involved grooming to break down inhibitions for the purpose of sexual conduct. Police investigations resulted in 15 criminal charges. The office also received 2,175 complaints alleging “misconduct, waste, fraud and financial mismanagement.

Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields notified officers that the department will no longer chase suspects after a criminal crashed into another car, killing two occupants. But this is going to encourage more crime and more criminals to jump into their cars and run. This is also a carjacker’s dream!

 Florida Man ‘Looking for Someone to Kill’ Hits Veteran with Car. 21-year-old Justin Pennell killed a 75-year-old veteran with his car Thursday, just to see what it would be like to end someone’s life.

Mexican drug war’s hidden human toll includes 61,000 disappeared. The Mexican government revised upward as much as 50% the number of citizens missing; vast majority are victims of the war with drug gangs that have grown more violent.

LAST DAYS TRAITORS: A FUNGUS AMONG US

Health Care Company Worker Claims to Let Trump Supporters Die. Reddit user LoveThisLife0101, who has a long history of posting against Trump supporters, said, “Hey, I work in a retirement home and care for a lot of trump supporters in their last days. I can tell you with certainty that 11 people (all verified trump supporters) could have been resuscitated/ prevented from failing had I taken the appropriate measures. I am literally letting you f—ers die off. These people vote like 100% of the time so it counts. Here is the really sick part. Every time I come on The Donald [Trump forum on Reddit] and see something that f—ing disgusts me (e.g. ‘It’s OKay to be White’ postings), I note it and then take it out on a trump supporter.”

College Professor Says Iran Should Target 52 Sites in America, including the Mall of America. In Massachusetts, Babson College adjunct professor Asheen Phansey said this on social media; he was promptly fired. He was the Director of [Environmental] Sustainability (aka the bogus “manmade” climate change agenda) there. He told The Atlantic in 2011 that his “job is to save the world.”

CNN: Corrupt News Network. CNN interviewed an Iranian government official who once served as the spokeswoman for a group of students who held 52 American diplomats hostage for over a year in 1979. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour did little to push back on Iranian official Massoumeh Ebtekar’s assertions that the U.S. carried out a “terrorist” action by killing Iranian general Soleimani  in a U.S. airstrike Jan. 2.

Congressman Who Lost Legs to IED Walks to Podium to Torch Dems for Being ‘Cowards’ After Soleimani Hit. Brian Mast served in an ordinance detail in Afghanistan and lost his legs while trying to clear a roadside bomb. Soleimani’s IRGC and Quds Force orchestrated the building of many of those bombs. They were responsible for killing 603 U.S. troops and wounding hundreds, if not thousands, of others. The congressman walked forcefully to the podium, his prosthetic legs exposed, took a second to tune his verbal flame-thrower, and then put the Democrats on blast. Speaking of roadside bombs, the Taliban terrorists just killed two American servicemen on Saturday in a roadside bomb and were proud to claim responsibility.

Inspector general Michael Atkinson who started impeachment now under investigation himself. Atkinson, who’d already been rebuked for his handling of the whistleblower complaint that triggered the Dems’ impeachment drama, is under investigation, according to Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. Nunes said, “We really do need to hear from the whistleblower… and the Democrats won’t release the transcript of us interviewing Inspector General Atkinson that brought this scam forward. Everyone needs to see that testimony, and the reason it’s not being released is because it’s very damaging, not only to the whistleblower, but also to Atkinson himself.”

AOC riles Dems by refusing to pay party dues, bankrolling colleagues’ opponents. Turns out the Communist darling of the Dem Party is a traitor to them as well.

House passes War Powers Resolution in rebuke of Trump’s actions against Iran. Most of the Traitor Party and a few Republicans, likely RINOS. White House Deputy Press Secretary Gidley responded, “The president has the right and duty to protect this nation and our citizens from terrorism. That’s what he continues to do, and the world is safer for it. This House resolution tries to undermine the ability of the U.S. Armed Forces to prevent terrorist activity by Iran and its proxies, and attempts to hinder the president’s authority to protect America and our interests in the region from the continued threats. These Congressional actions are completely misguided. In fact, this ridiculous resolution is just another political move because, under well-established Supreme Court precedent, it’s non-binding and lacks the force of law.”

EXPOSING HELLYWOOD

For the Third Time, George Lopez Fantasized About Killing Trump, and Has Attacked Trump Supporters. The latest was in response to an Instagram post erroneously claiming Iran has offered an $80 million bounty on Trump; Lopez said, “We’ll do it for half.”

Ricky Gervais mocks Golden Globes critics: ‘Just because you’re offended, doesn’t mean you’re right’. Ricky Gervais, himself a liberal, hosted the Golden Globes last Sunday, and his comedy routine had audience members gasping. Why? Because he was outing them, and said he didn’t care because it was his last time hosting it. He roasted the Hellywood elite in a number of areas and concluded by warning the celebrities not to make any political or “woke” statements when accepting their awards. He said, “You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.”

Cardi B bashes Trump, says she’s seeking Nigerian citizenship amid tensions with Iran. Cardi B says she’s Catholic and has mentioned her “strong relationship” with God in interviews, often saying that she directly communicates with God. Profession: Songwriter, Stripper, Rapper. The way she conducts herself shows the spirit she communicates with is not God; and she obviously knows nothing about Nigeria. Islamist terrorists seek out non-Muslims there. And we know what happens then.

MORE LEFTIST LUNACY

In California, it gets crazier by the day. Governor Newsom has signed a law that limits personal water usage. People can even be hit with massive fines if they exceed their limit by doing laundry and taking a shower on the same day.

In SanFran”psycho” it’s even worse than you may have heard. Tucker Carlson video shows American Dystopia: Civilization itself is coming apart there due to leftist policies. Besides the city’s sidewalks littered with junkies doing drug deals in broad daylight, dirty needles, and feces, crime is rampant with criminals quickly put back on the street. If damage done by criminals is under $950, they just get a citation. WARNING: GROSSNESS!

DEPOPULATION AGENDA

More Hellywood news: At the Golden Globes award show, as Michelle Williams held up her GOLDEN IDOL, she praised abortion. “I wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose, to choose when to have my children, and with whom.” She added, “So, women, 18 to 118, when it is time to vote, please do so in your own self-interest.” She received thunderous applause.

Planned Parenthood (aka baby parts sellers) total number of abortions has increased even as the overall number of abortions in the US has declined. PP performed nearly 350,000 abortions during its most recent fiscal year – a record number that underscores the organization’s tragic real mission.

BORDER DISORDER

Higher Court Approves $3.6 Billion For Border Wall. Some good news… at least temporarily. On Wednesday, a federal appeals court overturned a lower court ruling (by a Clinton-approved judge), thus allowing the Trump administration to divert $3.6B in military construction funds to the southern border wall.

APOSTASY AND DOCTRINES OF DEMONS

The University of Southern Maine displayed student-created artwork entitled “Unholy Bible: Very Revised Standard Edition.” Students were instructed to take a book and ‘repurpose it’ for something new. A student who describes himself as an atheist cut up a Bible to look like flames, colored its pages red, and pasted a pop-up satanic face over an image of Christ. He also pasted satanic faces on a drawing of a nativity scene. The artwork was displayed in a community building where church groups meet. After receiving complaints, the university says the display is protected speech. Christians and Jews can be mocked in such a way, but they don’t do so with Islam. That speaks volumes.

A MUST READ: “Is This The Evangelical Deep State?” Geri Ungurean presents an “Open Letter to the Churches” by Pastor Thomas Littleton. He exposes the players in the creeping in of the Leftists into the churches and how pastors have bowed to their agenda

The site Christianity Today claims it’s conservative, but it’s far from it. In the last 20+ years, since the emerging “progressive” socialist church was birthed, Christianity Today has not been theologically conservative and has actually helped to propagate an emergent socialist, very non-theologically conservative spirituality that does anything but bring glory to God.

High-ranking French Catholic bishop appointed by Pope Francis calls for baptism records to drop ‘mother-father,’ adapt to ‘complex’ families. The “recommended” formula would scrap the implicit mention of the father and mother as parents of the child, instead using a “catch-all” phrase mentioning “parents or other holders of parental authority.” The normal family is being sidelined to cave in to demands of homosexual activists.

EVIL COMMUNISM

Chinese Communist Party new measures demand total submission of religious groups. In addition to widespread control of all community activities, the new measures that go into effect in February require religious personnel to support, promote and implement total submission to the Chinese Communist Party among all members of their communities.

HATRED OF CHRISTIANITY AKA HATRED OF GOD

Good news: President Trump said, “Very soon I’ll be taking action to safeguard students and teachers’ First Amendment rights to pray in our schools. They want to take that right along with many other ones.”

HATRED OF JEWS & ISRAEL AKA HATRED OF GOD

God said Israel would be a blessing to the nations, and it surely has been. Jews are leaders in the world with their developments in countless areas. In the latest news,  Israeli tech company producing water from air gets top honor in Las Vegas. Also, Israel has just unveiled breakthrough laser to intercept missiles and other aerial threats. Those who think they’ve boycotted all Israeli products are only fooling themselves. They’d have to go back to the dark ages in order to do that. God also says He will curse those who curse Israel (Genesis 12:3).

President Trump spoke about anti-Semitic violence cresting in America and condemned the Dem Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for their hatred of Jews and Israel.

Ilhan Omar voted top anti-Semite of the year alongside Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and neo-Nazi Richard Spencer, according to a poll by stopantisemitism.org.

VIDEO: On the streets of London, now becoming Londonistan, anti-Israel protesters screamed death threats at Jews in Arabic: “You dog, only death will come to you.” “You son of a b*stard, only death will come to you.” “You Zionist, only death will come to you.”

LAST DAYS OF LOT RETURNED

First, some good news. James Shupe, who became the first person to obtain a legal sex designation of “non-binary,” now says the transgender lifestyle is a “fraud.” “I am and have always been male,” he said. “That is my biological truth. He added the “non-binary” sex designation is “fraud and legal fiction based on pseudoscience. I was indoctrinated to believe that I had this thing called a gender identity… It was all a lie.” He wrote: “I believe gender identity is a fraud perpetrated by psychiatry, the likes of something the US and other nations haven’t experienced since the lobotomy era.”

State’s First LGBT-Centered Charter School Up For Consideration In Alabama. “The Magic City Acceptance Academy” (yes, that’s the name) is one of the schools hoping to open next year. If approved, it could be the state’s first LGBTQ-focused charter school. It will be a 6th through 12th grade school primarily serving LGBTQ youth but open to everyone. From the Activist Mommy: “Pray that this school is not approved by the Birmingham school board. These young, impressionable students do not need an entire school affirming their wicked lifestyles. They need to hear the truth, no matter how hurtful it may feel. The truth is truly the only thing that will set them free from the bondage of sexual depravity and immorality the LGBT agenda imposes.”

‘Saved by the Bell’ Reboot Will Feature Transgender Teen in Lead Role. Former Disney Channel actor JJ Totah (now calls himself Josie) came out as “transgender” a year ago. Totah wrote, “My pronouns are she, her and hers. I identify as female, specifically as a transgender female.” Totah will play Lexi, the most popular “girl” at Bayside High who is feared and favored by her classmates. The show will also focus on other leftist causes.

In Maryland, a public library will again host lesbian pole-dancer’s ‘teens only’ sex ed class. Parents will again be prohibited from attending. The event is sponsored by two regional atheist organizations, Southern Maryland Area Secular Humanists and Washington Area Secular Humanists, as well as the local chapter of PFLAG, which identifies as the first and largest organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people, their parents, and their families.

Netflix and Vox Team Up To Make Explicit Sex “Education” Series. “While we continue to wage war on sexual perversion being foisted upon our children in the classroom, we cannot forget about the perversion seeking them out in the living room as well. If you are a Netflix subscriber, that job just got a little bit harder thanks to a new show called Sex, Explained. Though it is intended for “mature audiences,” a quick glance at the docuseries synopsis reveals that it’s sure to be more of the same leftist “sex-positive” propaganda intended only for those enlightened individuals who are perfectly comfortable with all forms of sexuality, no matter how unnatural or vomit-inducing.”

Feminists Set Pro-Life Advocate’s Car on Fire as Retaliation for Organizing March for Life. “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim. 3:6-7). The last stages in the fall of nations always follows the same pattern: “children [those unfit for leadership] are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people” (Isaiah 3:12-13).

ISLAMIC TERRORISM

So sorry we eliminated your mass murderer. Excerpt: “Iraq wants all US troops out of there… why are we still there? I forgot which gang of Islamists we are protecting from another group of Islamists [both sides of Islamists are villains]. The US was behind the takeout of Osama bin Laden… Now the scoffers are the many… and all over Trump. Main reason. He is Trump. Not Obama. So sorry we eliminated your mass murderer… who was always thinking ahead to the next atrocity…
It’s called war. Also known as we fight to win under THIS president, thank God, finally. The contrarian boo-birds belong to the Democrat Party… Nothing loyal about them…”

VIDEO: An Iranian Woman Tells the Truth About the Terrorist Soleimani and says many in Iran and the Middle East are glad he’s gone, etc. She said those in Iran who chant death to America are paid.

The death of Soleimani has cast a murky shadow on the future of Iraq’s leadership, but also has sent schisms through Syria’s leadership. Many Syrians wish the U.S. would have killed Soleimani years ago… Many Syrians have felt that they got their revenge.” Syria’s President Assad is closer with Iran than with Russia. Regardless, both Russia and Iran will align to invade Israel as the Bible tells us. And they will become bird food.

Netanyahu Praises Trump for Killing Iranian Terrorist Soleimani who oversaw and funded terrorist groups around the world, including Hezbollah and Hamas, both threats to peace and security in Israel and the Mideast. He said it was a move required to protect Americans, including troops and diplomats in Iraq from more planned attacks.

Three Americans killed in Kenya base. One US military service member and two contractors were killed in an Islamist attack. Two others from the Department of Defense were wounded.

In Niger, suspected Islamist militants killed 25 soldiers and wounded six others in an attack on an army post.

WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS

US dismisses Iraqi request to work on plan to withdraw US troops. State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said, “Our military presence in Iraq is to continue the fight against ISIS and as the Secretary has said, we are committed to protecting Americans, Iraqis, and our coalition partners. We have been unambiguous regarding how crucial our D-ISIS mission is in Iraq.”

Iran launched over a dozen ballistic missiles at targeted US bases in Iraq in retaliation for the killing of Soleimani. Iran’s Supreme Leader calls missile strikes a ‘slap in the face,’ warns it’s not enough. Iranian-backed Hezbollah threatens to attack Israel if US responds to Iran attack.

Obama’s Legacy: Iranian-backed Hezbollah Claims 70,000 Missiles Pointed at Israel in Case Iran Calls. Top Iranian lawmaker Mojtaba Zolnour warned the US that, if they are attacked, Israel will be annihilated in half an hour. Due to Obama, Iran was able to stock up its proxy groups Hezbollah and Hamas with thousands of missiles over the last decade.

A Ukrainian passenger jet crashed shortly after takeoff from Iran on January 8. All 176 passengers and crew died. Officials in the US and other countries say a Russian-made Iranian missile hit it. There is a video of the missile hitting the plane. Iran initially denied this, but now says it was an accident. At the time, Iran was firing missiles at US bases in Iraq. Interestingly, just two days before the plane crash, Ukraine pulled out of the anti-Israel U.N. Committee on the so-called Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the “Palestinian” People. The Israeli Foreign Ministry praised the move and said, “We urge other committee members to follow suit. What are you still doing there???” The American Jewish Committee also approved of the decision. “Ukraine has recognized the true nature of this U.N. body and acted laudably by withdrawing its membership,” said AJC CEO David Harris. “The CEIRPP uses precious U.N. resources to promote an agenda that does nothing to advance Israeli-“Palestinian” peace or improve the living conditions of “Palestinians.”

Netanyahu: Iran will ‘suffer overwhelming blow’ if it attacks Israel. “The state of Israel is the stable anchor in the stormy [Middle East] waters,” Netanyahu said. “We stand firm in the face of those who seek to destroy us. Anyone who tries to attack us will suffer the most overwhelming blow.” The prime minister added that Israel “stands completely besides the United States.”

Iraqi militia leader Jawad Al Telbawi says American civilians may be targeted if they reelect Trump. After threatening Trump and the U.S. military, he demanded Americans “pressure” Trump to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq “before we send your soldiers back in coffins.” He also suggested American civilians could be the target of terror attacks.

Ezekiel’s Hoofbeats Get Louder With Turkey’s Influence Over Libya. Russia has influence in Libya as well. Nations named in the last days battle of Ezekiel 38-39 are modern-day Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, Sudan, plus others that will invade Israel and become food for the fowls by the hand of God Himself, so many dead that it will take 7 months to bury what’s left of their bodies.

Erdogan, Putin inaugurate pipeline, discuss Libya, Syria. Putin visited Assad in Damascus on Tuesday, his first since Syria’s war began (at a time of acute uncertainty in the MidEast w/assassination of Iran’s Soleimani) after which he inaugurated a new gas pipeline with Erdogan on Wednesday. Nord Stream and TurkStream pipelines under the Baltic allow Russia to increase gas supplies to Europe without relying on Ukraine in Putin’s increasing domination of European energy markets. Russia and Turkey both have interests in Libya despite backing opposing sides there, which seems unfazed due to their ultimate goals. Neither wants Israel to share in the energy market. Their destiny awaits in the Golan (Ezek 38-39), likely initiated by destruction of Assad’s Damascus (Isaiah 17). Times are interesting, to say the least.

“PEACE” PLAN PROGRESS

US Middle East envoys in Israel to debate peace plan rollout. Berkowitz and Friedman met with Netanyahu and Gantz separately to discuss when to present the plan.

Settlements will not be evacuated in any peace plan while Benjamin Netanyahu is prime minister, he vowed on Wednesday, amid talk that the Trump administration may present its peace plan within weeks before the March 2 election. Netanyahu thanked US President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for the declaration that settlements are not illegal, saying they stood up for “justice and the truth.” The prime minister said, “There was no West Bank separate from the rest of the land.” It was seen as the heart of the land. We never lost our right to live in Judea and Samaria. The only thing we lost temporarily was the ability to exercise the right.” When Israel returned to the West Bank, he said, “We didn’t return to a foreign land. That is a distortion of history. Jews lived in Jerusalem and Hebron for thousands of years consecutively.”

Arab Nations Align with Israel Against Iran

Recent tensions with Iran have made Israel strike unlikely alliances with the Arab world and has resulted in the Islamic Republic of Iran becoming an outcast, to the point that even on the supposed united goal of “liberating Jerusalem,” Iran is no longer considered a legitimate player by the Arabs.

Al-Qasim: You want to liberate Jerusalem, right?

Musawi: Yes

Al-Qasim: What do you want to do with Jerusalem? Do you want to add them to the list? What list am I referring to – If after you “liberate” Jerusalem, will it turn into Baghdad – the world’s most divided city?… the dirtiest city in the world. Will it be like Beirut – a city that turned into the biggest garbage dump in the Middle East? Will you turn it into Damascus? a city where people are dying of starvation? Will you turn it into the Houthi run Yemen? The Arabic people are telling you: You want to liberate Jerusalem?… No one wants you to liberate Jerusalem or ‘Palestine.’

THIRD TEMPLE

When Netanyahu said, “If Israel is not present on the hills of Judea and Samaria, Islamists will take over instead,” Rabbi Yehuda Glick interrupted him yelling: “same with the Temple Mount!” At that point, the Prime Minister gave Glick an uncomfortable glare and continued with his speech.

“MANMADE” CLIMATE CHANGE HOAX: A RUSE FOR GLOBAL GOVENANCE

The signs at Glacier National Park warning that its signature glaciers would be gone by 2020 are being changed. They were added more than a decade ago to reflect climate change forecasts. Guess what? They’re still there.

INDOCTRINATING AND TERRIFYING CHILDREN

School Children Are Being Terrorized About Death from Climate Change at government schools in Canada and beyond… convinced they’ll die in just 8 years unless the UN is given more power and money. Scientists have compared the tactics and hysteria to those used by cults and dictators. In Germany for example, the state-broadcaster showed video footage of young school children taught to sing that their grandmothers are “pigs” for eating meat and driving gasoline-powered cars. “Every day my grandma fries herself a pork chop,” the seemingly happy children sing. “She does it because discount meat costs nearly nothing; my grandma is an old environmental pig!”

SURVEILLANCE SOCIETY

Swarms of Unidentified Drones are Appearing Over Western U.S. After Nightfall with six-foot wingspans and colored lights. This began in mid-December in Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas. The FBI, FAA and U.S. Air Force are investigating but haven’t found the source. Swarms of drones have been spotted, sometimes in formation. Late Monday, one of the sheriff’s offices announced they were looking for a closed box trailer with antennas or a large suspicious van. They asked anyone who has spotted it to call authorities.

Surveillance is everywhere at the CES gadget show. These talking speakers, doorbell cameras and fitness trackers come with the promise of making life easier or more fun, but they’re also potentially powerful spying tools. “Many, many horrible stories have come out of consumer electronics,” says Cindy Cohn, executive director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. For example, Amazon’s security camera division Ring, recently had to defend its safety practices following reports of hackers breaking into Ring camera systems and harassing children. Ring competitor Wyze Labs, an honoree in the CES 2020 innovation awards, announced a data breach just after Christmas affecting 2.4 million customers. And widely used voice assistants made by Google, Amazon and Apple all came under scrutiny in 2019 for data retention practices that allowed employees and contractors to listen to users’ audio recordings.

DEMONIC DELUSION

Deceived British astronaut Helen Sharman says she believes aliens exist and could be living among us. “There are so many billions of stars out there in the universe that there must be all sorts of different forms of life” she says. Yet, since God desires that none should perish, He came in the flesh to Earth to be the ultimate sacrifice, once for all, the Bible tells us. If there were life on other planets, then Jesus would have had to go to these planets to die for them also, since it is only through His death on the cross that we are offered salvation.

SIGNS IN THE SKY: A FORETASTE?

Edward Guinan of Villanova University and colleagues caused a sensation among astronomers last month when they reported Betelgeuse has been declining in brightness since October, reaching a modern all-time low of V = +1.12 mag on 07 December. Currently this is the faintest the star has been during our 25+ years of continuous monitoring. Little did they know when they issued their telegram in December that Betelgeuse was about to become even fainter. “On 06 January 2020, the magnitude of Betelgeuse was V = +1.37,” reports Guinan. That’s 20% dimmer than the “modern all-time low” registered in December. 

LOOKS LIKE THE DAWN OF EVIL; also a reminder of God’s severe judgment that is soon to come upon the unbelieving world during the Tribulation. A mirage appeared in Iran during the solar eclipse at sunrise Dec. 26 that first looked like red devil horns rising out of the sea, then became a red crescent. [Also, a photo taken of the eclipse in the sky appeared to show horns coming out of the dark clouds at one point].

CONCLUSION

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:12-13).

“For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ… Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

“Woe unto them!… These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever… These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.

“But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh” (See Jude 1).
