Preview of the CHAOS to come in 2019 and 2020… if you dare to glimpse reality

Wednesday, January 02, 2019 by: Mike Adams

apocalypse-city-collapse-burn

(Natural News) I’ve been putting off writing about events to come in 2019 – 2020 for the simple reason that I don’t think anyone is mentally prepared to accept the level of chaos that’s coming. Perhaps 95% of the population doesn’t give a crap about anything other than their social media posts, celebrity news and fashion shows. Their ability to face reality on any subject — politics, finance, science, ecology, etc. — has collapsed to zero. For the remaining 5%, many of those people are too desperately clinging to financial survival to think seriously about preparedness or collapse. They are already in a collapse emergency of sorts, and they don’t have the mental bandwidth to handle even the thought of another crisis.

It is perhaps the strongest evidence of a collapsing civilization when the signs of collapse are systematically ignored by those most likely to suffer from it. The people who will be most negatively impacted by a stock market crash, for example, will tell themselves they “can’t afford to lose any more retirement money” and thus have to keep holding their stocks and hoping for the best. When I tell these people to sell their stocks and convert to cash or T-bills, they irrationally proclaim, “But I can’t afford to pay the tax on the stock gains I’ve already made!”

Then how, I wonder, will they be able to afford living when half the value of their stocks evaporates over the next two years? Somehow, they’ve become paralyzed by profit and now find themselves incapable of realizing that profit by cashing out. (Remember: No stock market investment profit is real until you sell it. That’s why such profits are called “realized” profits. They are made real.)

The American public poisons itself to death and calls it “health care”

Similarly, the very people being poisoned by toxic pharmaceuticals resist adopting healthy food and lifestyle habits, telling themselves they need “their medication” even though it’s the statin drugs, cancer treatments and antidepressant chemicals that are making them diseased and depressed in the first place. Most people are murdering themselves and it’s all based on the bad information they’re being subjected to by a dishonest media that’s almost entirely controlled by corporate and globalist interests.

The primary job of the media, remember, is to convince people to act against their own self interest. Accomplish that takes daily propaganda exposure and heavy saturation of the conscious mind with repeated lies and distractions. Hence CNN.

Leftist Democrats fall into the same trap on the political spectrum, demanding an overpowering, authoritarian government that monitors and controls the lives of individuals, then they wonder why they’re living as slaves under a tyrannical regime. At what point did the people of Venezuela realize they had made a horrible mistake voting for a socialist leader and giving up their gun rights? Similarly, at what point will America’s “progressives” realize they are recreating the policies of the Third Reich under the banner of “progress?”

The road to tyranny is paved with good intentions, and those political candidates who smile too much (or promise too much) are faking it.

When mass delusions become normalized, society is reaching its end game

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in nearly fifty years of living on this Earth, it’s that almost everyone is delusional in one way or another. All across American society today, what passes as “mainstream” thinking is so horrifically disfigured that it’s almost unbelievable to witness. A biological man, for example, recently claimed to be a “woman” so he could join a women’s football team and dish out man-sized brute force on the play field. When he was cut from the women’s team, he sued… and won.

Under the banner of “feminism,” women’s sports teams are about to be steamrolled across society, dominated by creepy biological men full of rage and hatred, all claiming to be women. Amazingly, progressive women across America support the insanity in the name of feminism and progressivism. So the next time a female football player gets her clock cleaned and her teeth knocked out after enduring a devastating tackle from a 270-lb transgender “woman,” just remember this is what equality looks like in a progressive society.

It’s only going to get more insane, too, as the LGBTP movement — the “P” stands for pedophilia — takes over social media, internet content, Hollywood and cultural institutions. Any person who stands up and says that sexually molesting children is wrong will be banned for engaging in “hate speech” and not loving pedophiles. By the same logic, even serial killers will be canonized by the progressive Left as long as they claim to be gender fluid. They can simply claim to “self-identify” as a transgender human predator, thereby invoking instant legal and cultural immunity for their actions. It rubs the lotion on its skinmay soon be the campaign slogan for a gender-confused Democrat.

These are all signs of the collapse of civilization. On the good news side, these are temporary insanities that cannot be sustained for long, since they violate the laws of nature, biology and reality. On the bad news side, they are leading indicators that prove human civilization has truly gone insane and can no longer function in any manner which is rational or sustainable.

There is no stopping the collapse that has already begun

You’re starting to see the systems of human civilization breaking down everywhere. The labor pool of reliable, young workers in America has all but vanished. Bankers are financial idiots who can’t answer basic questions about customer accounts. Corporate “security officers” who work at insurance companies can’t answer questions about the security of your social security number. Doctors now function as little more than Big Pharma’s human drug dispensing machines, and so-called “journalists” who have infested the corporate-run media are so dishonest and incompetent that they’ve utterly lost the ability to investigate anything at all.

There isn’t a sector of society that is functioning like it should these days. Not even the universities, which have been transformed into snowflake indoctrination centers for the mentally gullible. Young people graduating from college today know less than they did before they entered the school. They become experts in anti-knowledge, or “fake facts” that they think are true. For example, nearly all college graduates today believe that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant that will destroy the planet, yet any honest scientist who graduated a generation earlier will confirm that carbon dioxide is the single most important nutrient for plants, responsible for the “greening” of rainforests, food crops, grasslands and even aquatic ecosystems. CO2 is the molecule of life, yet college graduates have been indoctrinated with anti-knowledge that claims CO2 is a poison.

Simultaneously, actual poisons are believed to be miraculous healers. Smoking cannabis, for example, subjects your body to all the cancer-causing carcinogens of cigarette smoke, yet today’s youth have been brainwashed to believe that cannabis smoke is somehow a health-enhancing magical substance, while cigarette smoke is a deadly poison. Those of us who are older know full well what a 20-year pot head looks and thinks like… and it isn’t pretty. If smoking cannabis healed your brain, Northern California would be full of Einsteins. Instead, it’s collapsing like the rest of the country, only with more pot smoking along the way.

Inhaling burned cannabis is just as damaging to your health as inhaling burned tobacco. Yet tens of millions of Americans currently believe precisely the opposite. (Hint: If you want to benefit from medical cannabis, take it in liquid form or vape it so that you aren’t inhaling smoke generated from burning organic matter.)

We’ve crossed the tipping point… modern society cannot be rescued from its self-induced suicide

I could go on with many more examples of the collapse of modern society, but you’re probably experiencing much of this yourself and therefore need no further convincing. What you really need to know is that society has crossed a tipping point, beyond which a catastrophic collapse — societal suicide — can no longer be reversed.

We probably crossed that point a decade ago with the election of Barack Obama, an America-hating criminal traitor who systematically worked to destroy the United States of America from within. Now, a decade later, we are still trying to stop the hemorrhaging with emergency measures, but the bureaucratic deep state is blocking all such efforts while pointing at Trump and claiming it’s his fault things are going wrong.

From here forward, it’s just a question of the form and timing of the collapse… there’s not even a real debate about whether it’s coming. The systems upon which sustainable society depends are no longer functioning. Across the realms of politics, finance, science, biology, culture, history, news, knowledge and even technology, falsehoods are rewarded while truths are punished. The weak-minded are celebrated while the critical thinkers are terrorized and defamed. The perverted are hoisted on pedestals, while the moral members of society are mocked and censored.

Every institution in society now rewards evil, perversion, destruction and stupidity while punishing intelligence, rationality, innovation and morality. A society that celebrates the mass murder of unborn children while demonizing Christian bakers is a society that has no future. A society that finds knowledge despicable but lies fascinating and viral is a society that has no future. A society that poisons its children for profit with Big Pharma drugs while teaching them that gender biology doesn’t exist is a society that has no future.

A society that heaps financial reward on the paper pushers on Wall Street while confiscating the life savings of middle-income wage earners through central bank monetary debasement has no future. A society that cannot fund its pension promises for tens of millions of state and federal workers — most of whom are going to lose everything — has no future. A society with federal regulators that promote the mass poisoning of the food supply with GMOs, glyphosate, pesticides and hormone-disrupting chemicals has no future, either.

We are past the tipping point of societal suicide. Every institution operating in America today is engineering self-induced destruction. There is no institution that is operating on reason, planning or even common sense. The DOJ has become a joke of justice; the FBI is the most corrupt law enforcement agenda in American history; the EPA promotes the mass pollution of America’s soils through biosludge; the FDA is a Big Pharma mass drugging propaganda operation; the CDC is a massive science fraud organization that worsens the health of Americans; the IRS is a political weapon that’s used to target political enemies of Democrats. Each of these institutions was founded with the promise to help sustain America, yet each of these now works diligently to destroy society and collapse sustainable society.

Here’s the truth about what’s coming: Mass poverty, disease, addiction, suicides and collapse

Because of the collapse of reason, civility, law and order, over the next few years humanity will be tested like never before. As The Burning Platform writes:

Based upon history, the resolution will not be based on compromise, civility, reason, or peaceful means. The combustible combination of unpayable debt, civic anarchy, and global chaos are set to detonate, creating an era of maximum darkness, death, destruction, and decisions. Making America Great Again will require personal sacrifice, dreadful choices, survival skills, intelligent decisions, and the courage to win at all costs.

The delusion of stock market profits is not going to bail out the mass destitution that’s coming soon for the American people. The “wealth” has all been stolen by the usual suspects: central banks and corrupt bureaucrats. Your dollars will one day be rendered worthless, which means your bank account “savings” will be worthless even if the numbers still appear on your bank account statements. Pensions will be wiped out. The real estate bubble has already begun to collapse, and the bond bubble won’t be far behind now that the Fed is tinkering with interest rates again (in another desperate effort to crash the stock market under Trump).

The sobering truth is that what’s really coming for America won’t look that different from what has already happened in Venezuela. You’re going to see mass unemployment, an exploding population of homeless people and a dramatic worsening of the opioid crisis. Suicides will skyrocket, infectious disease will spread and the Democrats will incessantly demand you surrender more power to them to solve it all. Bigger government is the answer, you’ll be told… and oh, by the way, don’t forget to turn in your guns or you won’t qualify for government food stamps.

Soylent green suddenly doesn’t seem that far-fetched anymore. Except in our dystopian society, even the soylent green will be too toxic to consume, since today’s average human being is a cesspool of heavy metals, prescription drugs and pesticide residue. (I know, I’ve tested thousands of samples of human hair vs. wild animal hair in my analytical laboratory, and wild animal hair is pristine compared to human hair.)

Ultimately, the poisoned will feed on the poisoned. The clueless will vote for the clueless. The desperate will sell their bodies to the desperate in exchange for one more toxic meal. Social media will be the last cruel joke on humanity as the depressed, malnourished masses take to SnapChat to pretend their miserable lives are awesome… even as they contemplate suicide after the conclusion of each video clip.

2019 – 2020 is only the warm-up… a decade of chaos is yet to come

The suicide of humanity is under way and accelerating rapidly. It cannot be reversed. Now, we can only watch as it plays out over the next several years, accelerating in 2019 – 2020 and likely exploding with unimaginable chaos following the 2020 election (regardless of who wins). Violence will spill into the streets, where deranged, lunatic Leftists will have to be met with force to prevent them from burning down America’s cities. Martial law is a distinct possibility, yet even martial law cannot prevent the collapse of modern society, since the root causes go far beyond the mere lack of civility.

America has raised a generation of chemically-intoxicated, emotionally fragile morons. The media has abandoned any last pretense of engaging in “news reporting.” The tech giants have sold out to the communists and globalists, and every cultural institution of our modern day has gone all-out to promote transgenderism and pedophilia while attacking morality, reason and truth. The vaccines cause brain damage, the food causes cancer and the institutions of science teach climate change quackery. Meanwhile, at least a million Americans are hooked on opioids and other painkillers, and the day the pharmacies run out is the day these people go “full zombie” on society.

You will need to be armed to survive what’s coming, and the police and sheriff’s departments will be powerless. 911 services are already breaking down on a regular basis, with nationwide telecommunications infrastructure failing with stunning regularity. If you don’t yet own a pistol, a rifle and a shotgun, you’re already late to the game. There will be mass violence — especially in the cities — and only the prepared will survive.

The coming chaos won’t be over in a weekend, or even in a year. It could last a decade, and it will unveil a stunning landscape of cultural depravity, child sex trafficking, substance abuse, political corruption and critical failures of law enforcement. Many people who are working middle-class jobs today will find themselves living on the streets, begging for food, performing sex acts for money and stealing to avoid starvation. Homeless tent cities will rapidly expand in America’s largest cities, and Democrat-controlled sections of America will resemble Third World shantytowns, complete with cholera outbreaks, HIV pandemics and superbug infections.

If you are not willing to kill in your own defense, you will be killed

As you consider the collapse of law and order across society, keep in mind that people who are not willing to kill in self-defense to survive violent attacks will be killed themselves. I highly recommend you read the book, “When Violence Is the Answer” by Tim Larkin. In that book, you will learn that surviving the coming violence of society is not so much about knowing fighting techniques but rather having a mindset that enables you to unleash acts of extreme violence against those who initiate attacks against you first. The book is largely written for women, by the way, to protect themselves from rapists and muggers. But it’s also very informative for men, too.

Dare I say that 99% of the U.S. population today is too polite to survive when it comes to unbridled violence. Those 99% will be easily preyed upon by the criminal class that have no qualms about slitting your throat, gouging out your eyes, shooting you in the back without a warning shot, poisoning your dog to assault your country home, etc. If you are not willing to flip the mental switch that’s required to kill these people in your own defense, you simply will not survive any encounter with the criminal class.

Word of advice: If you really want to know what society will be like in a post-collapse scenario, go interview ten felony prisoners and ask them how they would survive such a scenario. The answers you get will forever change your view of reality. These people are not playing by any rules at all, and they are behind bars for a reason. Remember, too, that Democrats want to empty all the prisons and release these violent felons onto the streets of America. That’s because Democrats don’t “believe” in walls, guns or prisons, which is why Democrats will be among the very first to be murdered by those violent felons, ironically. Never forget all the bikers and hikers who went on “peace missions” to hike through ISIS-controlled territories in the Middle East to prove that “people everywhere are by nature good people.”

Those hikers got their throats slit and were left to bleed out on the side of the road. It’s tough to learn that your delusions don’t count in the mind of someone else. You might believe that the world is a peaceful place full of good people, but your delusion counts for nothing when a violent Antifa nut job attacks you with a spiked baseball bat. If you’re not armed and prepared to shoot that Antifa not job before he can drive that spike through your skull, you will end up just like the “world peace” hikers who died in ISIS territory.

If these concepts make you feel uncomfortable, you do not yet have the mindset to survive the coming violence. Defending your life against violence is a mental choice, but most people are incapable of carrying out the necessary actions to save themselves, since they’ve been told their entire lives that only “bad” people shoot others, for example. In truth, good people sometimes shoot bad people to save lives.

There will be an opportunity to build a new society after the collapse of this one

Finally, on a positive note, it is now clear that collapse is the next necessary step to rebirth. The “Next Society,” as I call it, cannot be born until the current society collapses. During that collapse, perhaps 50 – 90 percent of the current population will perish, depending on which scenario unfolds. Your job — and mine — is to help rebuild society on the other side of this, making sure we create a society based on real justice, individual liberty, free speech rights and the utter dismantling of all corporate monopolies that currently enslave humanity.

Specifically, Google, Facebook, Apple and Big Pharma companies must be utterly dismantled and eliminated from future society. The money supply must be owned by the People, not private globalist banks, and government must be held in check with strict term limits and constitutional budgetary limitations. Even better, government officials who lie must be prosecuted for lying to the People, and elected representatives must give up all personal wealth for life in order to have the honor of actually serving the country (rather than their current mode of operation which is to exploit their political power for personal financial gain).

Finally, the People must maintain power over government operatives. For example, federal prosecutors who destroy evidence and obstruct justice should face the death penalty. Elected representatives who attempt to destroy the liberties of the People should be subjected to immediate prosecution and lifetime imprisonment. Government authorities who collude with private industry to poison the people with dangerous drugs, pesticides or policies should be subjected to lifetime bans from public office (as well as heavy fines and possible criminal prosecution).

There are a thousand good ideas about how to build the Next Society. For as long as we can, we will explore what some of those solutions might look like. I’ll also bringing you additional practical information on how to survive the collapse that’s already unfolding. (Click to Source)

245 Million Christians Facing ‘Extreme’ Persecution Worldwide (VIDEO)

 

WASHINGTON, DC — North Korea remains at the top of a list of 50 countries where at least 245 million Christians are facing “extreme persecution” this year, up 14 percent from 215 million at the beginning of 2018, the World Wide Watch List (WWL) released on Wednesday by Open Doors, a group that monitors the mistreatment of Christ followers, revealed.

At the Heritage Foundation, David Curry, the president and CEO of Open Doors, unveiled the 2019 WWL that ranks the top 50 “most dangerous” countries to follow Jesus, noting that women are especially targeted.

“The Open Doors World Watch List which you will see today is the most comprehensive grassroots study of what is happening around the world to restrict religious freedom, particularly for Christians,” he explained, adding “The data proves conclusively that Christian women are the most exploited group on the face of the earth.”

Curry highlighted several trends that are currently fueling the mistreatment of Christians, including the rise of authoritarianism and spread of radical Islam, particularly into sub-Saharan Africa.

“Radical Islam is the driver behind eight of the top 10 on the World Watch List this year, four of which are from Africa,” the Open Doors chief proclaimed.

“Africa is now a major epicenter of violence against Christians,” he observed.

Last year, worldwide persecution resulted in 4,136 deaths, 1,266 attacks on worshipping centers, and the detention 2,625 individuals, the report revealed. The number of deaths increased by about 35 percent from 3,066 at the beginning of 2018.

“Christians were killed for faith-related reasons. On average, that’s 11 Christians killed every day for their faith,” Open Doors noted.

Overall, one in 9 Christians across the world suffered from “high levels of persecution,” the organization added.

North Korea remained at the top of the list for the 18th year in a row.

Curry noted:

North Korea is number one on the World Watch List again and number one in the use of authoritarian tactics. It’s illegal to own a bible. The very suggestion that you’re a Christian can get you arrested with neighborhood watches again using old school communist tactics to control people. The use of authoritarian methods is a major trend on this year’s World Watch List and it’s a worrisome trend. We believe that churches must be sacred from authoritarian tactics.

This year, Open Doors listed 11 countries where Christians are experiencing “extreme persecution”: North Korea, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, Eritrea, Yemen, Iran, India, and Syria.

“For the first time since the start of the World Watch List, India has entered the top 10,” Open Doors pointed out.

Open Doors’ report thus argues that India is a worse place to practice Christianity than China, where persecution against followers of Jesus has intensified under Communist Party leader Xi Jinping, who has vowed to “Sinicize” the country’s religions or make them more Chinese by instilling core communist values.

“China jumped 16 spots, from 43 to 27,” the monitor group reported.

Referring to both India and China, the Open Doors report said:

Each of these countries is home to more than a billion people, so these trends are distressing. Hindu nationalists in India continue to attack Christians with what seems like no consequences, and in China, the increased power of the government and the rule of Xi Jinping continue to make open worship difficult in some parts of the country.

Open Doors described the persecution of Christians in China as the worst it has been for more than a decade, with at least 50 million people facing some form of repression this year as the Xi administration tightens its grip over religious worship, the Guardian found.

The watchdog group, alluding to the estimated 65 million Christians in India, reported:

Christians have been targeted by Hindu nationalist extremists more each year. Since the current ruling party took power in 2014, attacks have increased, and Hindu radicals believe they can attack Christians with no consequences. The view of the nationalists is that to be Indian is to be Hindu, so any other faith— including Christianity—is viewed as non-Indian. Additionally, in some regions of the country, converts to Christianity from Hinduism experience extreme persecution, discrimination and violence.

Hindu nationalist groups in India are reportedly affiliated with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Curry pointed out:

The BJP party, which is the ruling party, Prime Minister Modi’s party has created a radical Hindu agenda within India that seeks to push out the Christian faith and anything other than the Hindu faith. They’re not hiding it. It’s not a secret. It’s their agenda and they have created an environment where people have impunity to attack churches — hundreds of churches have been attacked.

He went on to urge “influential business people in America of Indian descent…to speak out about the discrimination against Christians in India.”

“We believe the international community is beginning to wake up to this discrimination within India … because this is a massive human rights violation and Indian needs to be held to account if they want to be part of the international business community,” Curry added.

The Open Doors chief also urged the United States and other Western nations to defend and promote religious freedom.

Curry told reporters:

People around the world are losing their freedom to choose their faith and we have to pay attention. Religious freedom is the key to what it means to be free. It is the key to what it means to be human and we believe at Open Doors that everyone should have the right to choose their own faith or if they want to have no faith at all. The United States and the Western world can lead in defending and promoting religious freedom.

Open Doors released its WWL assessment one day after the United States government marked 2019’s Religious Freedom Day on Tuesday. (Click to Source)

bible-1024x576

What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?

Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.

For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?

For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?

And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:

16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:

17 And the way of peace have they not known:

18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.

19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. (Romans 3:1-31) King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

Pope Francis: World Government Must Rule U.S. ‘For Their Own Good’

 

Pope Francis told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that the United States of America has “a distorted vision of the world” and Americans must be ruled by a world government, as soon as possible, “for their own good.”

The Pope made the observation in an interview with La Repubblica reporter Eugenio Scalfari.

Last Thursday, I got a call from Pope Francis,” Scalfari reported. “It was about noon, and I was at the newspaper when my phone rang.”

He said Pope Francis had been watching Putin and Trump at the G20 and had become agitated. The Pope demanded to see him at four that afternoon, according to a Google translation of the Italian report.

Pope Francis told me to be very concerned about the meeting of the G20,” Scalfari wrote.

As translated into English by Agence France Presse, which picked up the story, the Pope said: “I am afraid there are very dangerous alliances between powers who have a distorted view of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, Russia and Assad in the war in Syria.”

The danger concerns immigration,” the Pope continued to La Repubblica. “Our main and unfortunately growing problem in the world today is that of the poor, the weak, the excluded, which includes migrants.

This is why the G20 worries me: It mainly hits immigrants,” Pope Francis said, according to AFP.

Pope Francis’s idea that Americans would be better off under a world government doesn’t stop there. The radical leftist pontiff also went on record stating that Europe should become one country under one government.

In the same interview, according to La Repubblica, Pope Francis said that Europe must take on a “federal structure,” resembling feudal times when the peasants were ruled by unimpeachable monarchs.

I also thought many times to this problem and came to the conclusion that, not only but also, for this reason, Europe must take as soon as possible a federal structure,” the Pope said, according to the Google translation of the La Repubblica article. (Click to Source)

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – 1 John 1:9 – January 17, 2019

best24

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:1-10) King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

Israel Strikes Iranian Targets in Syria, Exposes Final Hezbollah Terror Tunnel

Netanyahu on Sunday confirmed that the IDF nailed hundreds of Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria, in addition to discovering a sixth and final tunnel dug by Hezbollah terrorists.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday confirmed that Israel has struck hundreds of Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria, including a weapons facility in a weekend airstrike, as the military announced the discovery of a sixth and final tunnel dug by the Lebanese terror group for cross-border attacks.

Speaking to the IDF Galilee Division near the Lebanese border, Netanyahu commented, “In the past 48 hours, Israel attacked an Iranian weapons warehouse at the international airport in Damascus. This reflects our consistent policy and strong determination to prevent Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria. If necessary, we will step up these attacks.”

He added, “At the same time, the IDF has exposed a sixth tunnel – the largest of all – that crossed into Israeli territory. This brings Operation Northern Shield to a successful close. We will continue to monitor all activity by Hezbollah, and by Iran and its proxies. We will do whatever is necessary to ensure the security of Israel.”

The statements marked a rare, public acknowledgment of Israeli attacks against Hezbollah and its patron Iran in neighboring Syria, where Israel is long believed to have targeted Iranian weapons shipments to the Lebanese Shiite group.

At his weekly Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu also publicly confirmed the strike as he thanked outgoing military chief Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot for long years of service and particularly his marshaling of Israel’s campaign against Iran in recent years.

“We have operated with impressive success in thwarting Iran from establishing a military foothold in Syria, in the framework of which the military has struck hundreds of times against Iranian and Hezbollah targets,” Netanyahu said. “In the last 36 hours alone, the air force struck storage facilities with Iranian weapons at the Damascus International Airport. The bulk of recent attacks show how we are more committed than ever to act against Iran in Syria, as we promised.”

Coupled with the announcement that after Sunday’s discovery, Israel was wrapping up its operation to destroy Hezbollah’s tunnel network into Israel, the weekend strike in Syria is widely seen as Eisenkot’s “parting shot” as his four-year tenure as military chief ends. He will be replaced on Tuesday by Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi.

After keeping a low profile throughout most of his term, Eisenkot gave a series on interviews over the weekend focusing on his shifting the military’s attention toward Iran directly, instead of just engaging its lesser proxies, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Hamas in Gaza.

In a New York Times interview published Friday, Eisenkot said that Israel “has struck thousands of targets without claiming responsibility or asking for credit” as part of his showdown with Qassim Suleimani, the commander of Iran’s elite Quds Force.

Eisenkot also revealed the government approved his shift in strategy in January 2017, stepping up airstrikes in Syria. In 2018 alone, he said Israel’s air force dropped 2,000 bombs in Syria.

Operation Northern Shield

A far more visible part of his legacy has been the recent Lebanese border operation, which thwarted Hezbollah’s prime strategic investment for its next potential war.

Military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said Sunday the final tunnel was the largest discovered so far, running hundreds of meters from under a Lebanese home and deep into Israeli territory. Israel launched “Operation Northern Shield” early last month to detect and destroy a vast network of Hezbollah tunnels the group hoped terrorists could use to sneak across the border and attack Israeli civilians.

Conricus said the latest tunnel originated from the Lebanese border town of Ramyeh, was 55 meters deep and ran 800 meters inside Lebanese territory and also “dozens” of meters into Israel. It included stairs, a rail system and a wide a passageway that allowed for the movement of equipment and a large number of forces.

The tunnel would be destroyed in the coming days, Conricus said, adding that while more tunnels still existed on the Lebanese side of the border, this effectively marked the end of the ambitious military operation.

“We have achieved the goal that we set out to achieve,” he said. “According to our intelligence, there are no longer any cross-border attack tunnels into Israel.”

Netanyahu also commented on the tunnels in his address to the IDF Galilee Division on Sunday, “I think that everyone understands that a very serious threat was averted here. Hezbollah’s operational plan was to use the tunnels weapon to infiltrate many fighters, between 1,000-2,000 terrorists, into the Galilee, to seize communities here. Everyone understands how the war would look if Hezbollah battalions were in the Galilee, and with the Iranian army opposite the Golan Heights. We have prevented this – and will continue to prevent it.”

The tunnels violate a cease-fire resolution that ended a devastating war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006. Conricus said the U.N. peacekeeping mission, known as UNIFIL, was updated on the latest development.

In the wake of the tunnel discoveries, Israel has asked the international community to impose tough sanctions on Hezbollah and launch action against its state-within-a-state operation in Lebanon. The military said its forces would stay deployed along the border to monitor for any other possible underground activity, and said it holds the Lebanese government responsible for everything happening within its territory.

The Hezbollah terror group, which acts independently in Lebanon, has yet to comment on the tunnels.

In recent years, Hezbollah has been bogged down in fighting in Syria on behalf of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government. But with that war winding down, Israeli security officials fear Hezbollah is refocusing its attention on Israel. (Click to Source)

Pastor Loses Job After Church Sign Stating ‘Homosexuality Is Still A Sin’ Causes Uproar

church-sign

Pastor Justin Hoke of Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church in Weed, California, has lost his job following both community and alleged internal backlash over the language used in his most recent church sign.

In early January, Hoke designed a sign that read: “Bruce Jenner is still a man. Homosexuality is still a sin. The culture may change. The Bible does not.”

According to SFGate, “a couple dozen” community members gathered to protest the sign on January 6. The protest, called the “Shastina Love Rally,” was organized in part by local resident Amelia Mallory.

A second protest was held on Sunday. According to the most recent count on the official Facebook invite page, 71 people were “going” to the event, and 182 people were “interested.”

In a pinned post on the official Love Rally Facebook page, a message from Mallory reads in part:

We are there to support the LGBTQ+ community in a positive way. Debating with any church members isn’t the goal. We are not there for them. Some of us on our side of the street still are also religious. All of us are capable of treating everyone with respect, even if we disagree. Do not engage anyone trying to escalate the situation to violence.

On or around January 9, the sign was vandalized:

In an article published just several days ago, Yahoo Lifestyle quoted Pastor Hoke, who said: “We believe that Jesus commands all Christians to let their light shine. We also believe that salvation is only for sinners. Jesus said he came to call sinners, not the righteous. If we give in to cultural demands to stop calling sin ‘sin,’ then we are robbing people of opportunity to hear the truth.”

Despite there being no outward sign of fracture within the church, on Saturday evening, Hoke published the following unexpected update on Facebook:

As of today, I am no longer the pastor of Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church.

After much prayer and counsel, I have decided that it is best to briefly communicate what has taken place.

  1. I was informed by our other elder that he felt he could no longer follow my lead as Pastor of TBPC.
  2. I was informed that essentially all but one couple in membership would leave the church if I continued as pastor of TBPC.
  3. Our other elder and the couple felt that those who left would likely return if I would leave.
  4. Our other elder was agreeable to stay and assume the pastoral responsibilities.

Therefore it was determined that it would be in the best interest of the local body for us (TBPC and the Hoke family) to part ways.

Over one hundred people have commented, a majority of whom are supportive of Hoke:

“I am sorry the church doesn’t support your stance. God bless you for being faithful to the Word of God, and not the ungodly secular culture.”

“Brother, I am speechless but not surprised. You preach the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and that is hard to handle for most. I am praying for you and the family right now. God bless you and keep you.”

“We are praying for you brother. You boldly spoke the truth. Galatians 1:10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

The Daily Wire spoke with Pastor Hoke, who walked us through the situation from his perspective.

According to Hoke, he was inspired to create the sign after seeing the news story in which a biological male who identifies as female “threw a fit because a clerk had accidentally referred to him with the masculine gender [pronoun].”

Hoke said that because “the culture has drawn a line in the sand and dared [Christians] to step over,” he came to the conclusion that the church should accept the challenge — not with hate, but by simply preaching “the gospel.”

The pastor also noted that he wasn’t “fired,” but that the church faced a potential fracture in the wake of the fervor surrounding the sign, and that in order to keep the church intact, he felt it was best to vacate his position. Hoke repeatedly stated that he wanted to be circumspect in the way he spoke about the incident because he “loves” the people at Trinity Bible Presbyterian.

Regarding the protesters, Hoke said: “I believe they’re sincere — sincerely wrong, but sincere. I believe that it is hypocritical that their position is taught in schools and pushed on children, while our position is asked to be kept within the walls of the church.” He added that he hopes and believes that “within their midst, there are people whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life, and that the command for all Christians is to preach to them the gospel faithfully, calling them to repentance and faith, that they might be changed by the Holy Spirit and brought into the family of God.”

Hoke concluded our conversation by stating that if he could stand in the pulpit again for just a few minutes, he would continue to preach “the gospel as concisely as [he could].”

Plague of Locusts Attacks Islam’s Holiest Mosque in Mecca

What the cutting locust left, the swarming locust has eaten. What the swarming locust left, the hopping locust has eaten, and what the hopping locust left, the destroying locust has eaten. Joel 1:4 (The Israel Bible™)

Saudi Arabia, in particular the location of Islam’s holiest sites, Mecca, has recently been inundated by swarms of locusts, crickets and cockroaches.

Social media users have posted images and uploaded several videos of swarms of locust infesting the Great Mosque of Mecca, the holiest in all of Islam. It is the focus of the hajj, the pilgrimage, which draws millions of Muslims a year to Saudi Arabia.

According to a report on Al-Araby, Mecca’s municipal authorities announced earlier in the week that specialized teams of sanitation workers have been tasked to deal with the infestation.

“We have harnessed all efforts available to speed up the eradication of the insects in the interest of the safety and comfort of guests to God’s house,” said the statement.

In a report on reliefweb.int, a Desert Locust Bulletin from December said that “Favorable ecological conditions and extensive breeding caused a Desert Locust outbreak to develop in the winter breeding areas along the Red Sea coast in Sudan and Eritrea during December.”

The report suggested that the breeding in southeast Egypt, on the Red Sea coast in Saudi Arabia and Oman was smaller than that which plagued Sudan and Eritrea. The swarm was helped by good rains following Cyclone Luban, a very severe tropical storm that affected Yemen, Somalia and Oman in particular, in October 2018.

Is it simply irony that in the weekly Torah portion Jews read about the final five plagues – boils, fiery hail, locusts, darkness and death of first-born males – that God sent to afflict Pharaoh and the Egyptians, a swarm of locusts attacks Islam’s holiest mosque?

A locust will eat its weight in food every day and swarms can strip entire regions bare but, for some (like the Russian fishermen), they are considered a mixed blessing . Locusts are, in fact, edible and considered a delicacy in some countries. While the consumption of most insects is forbidden under kosher laws, the Talmud identifies four species of locust that are kosher and permitted to be eaten by Jews. Since the identity of those species is in dispute, most Jews refrain from indulging. (Click to Source)

The Passover Lamb

Did God really need a sign? Didn’t He know which houses belonged to the Hebrews? Why did He need them to mark their houses with blood?

bs-sheep

Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, “On the tenth of this month they are each one to take a lamb for themselves, according to their fathers’ households, a lamb for each household.” (Exodus 12:3)

The instructions were simple and straightforward. On the tenth day of the month, every family was to select an unblemished lamb or goat. On the fourteenth day of the month, they were to slaughter it and smear its blood on the doorposts of their houses. The blood would be a sign. God promised to pass over the houses marked with blood. The Hebrew word for “pass over” is pasach (פסח). We translate the word pesach into English as Passover.

The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over (pasach, פסח) you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. (Exodus 12:13)

The pesach lamb was a sacrifice, but it was not a sacrifice for sin. In discussing the Passover lamb, the Torah does not mention anything about sin, confession or atonement. Not every kind of animal sacrifice was meant for taking away sin. The blood of the Passover lamb was meant as a sign for God.

Did God really need a sign? Didn’t He know which houses belonged to the Hebrews? Why did He need them to mark their houses with blood?

This can be compared to a father who told his son, “We are about to cross a busy street. Look both ways to see if any traffic is coming and tell me when it is safe to cross.” Surely the father did not need his son to tell him when it was safe to cross. He could see for himself. Why didn’t he simply tell his son when it was safe? He desired to teach his son the necessary precautions because he knew that one day it might save his life.

In a similar way, God wanted to familiarize His people with the concepts of sacrifice and blood atonement, because one day their lives would depend on it. If it was just a matter of making a mark on the house, it would not have been necessary to use an unblemished lamb (one that is fit for sacrifice) or even to use blood at all. The ritual of the lamb’s blood at Passover provided Israel with a marvelous object lesson to prepare all of us for understanding the atoning work of Yeshua.

Every year, as we work through the stories of the slaying of the Passover Lamb, the exodus from Egypt, the crossing of the Red Sea and the rest of the narratives, we see the story of our salvation unfold in the language of Torah. The story of the Passover lamb is foundational for understanding the gospel. Just as the Passover lamb needed to be unblemished and flawless, we need a sinless substitute to take our place in judgment. Just as the blood markings protected everyone in the house, we need to take shelter under the spilled blood of Messiah. Just as the firstborn of those who did not prepare a Passover lamb were struck down, so too those outside of Messiah are without hope.

The Passover lamb was the avenue of escape that God provided for His people in Egypt from the devastating tenth plague. And it was not just for Hebrews. Had the Egyptians sacrificed a lamb according to the instructions and applied its blood to the doorposts of their houses, they too would have been spared. The sacrificial death of Yeshua is the avenue of escape that God has provided to spare us from condemnation and eternal death. One need not be Jewish to benefit; one only needs to be under the blood of Yeshua.

Christians, Stop Saying Jesus is the Son of God, it Provokes Muslims

Muslims

Buried in the concluding paragraphs of a Christmas Eve Washington Times report about Muslims in Uganda forcing Christians to convert to Islam was the extraordinary revelation that in that country, Muslims now consider any public statement of the Christian Faith to be a calculated insult to Muslims, for which they can justifiably exact revenge.

This is, or should be, sobering news for the comfortable Christians of the West who have made an idol out of “interfaith dialogue” and fastidiously avoid saying anything remotely critical about Islam, even as the Muslim persecution of Christians continues worldwide.

“In June,” the Times reported, “a group of Muslims attacked Christian preachers in eastern Uganda during a ‘crusade,’ where Christians publicly profess their faith and invite others to join. Muslims in the town accused the Christians of mocking Islam by publicly saying Jesus was the Son of God.”

In response, said Christian pastor Moses Saku, the Muslims became violent: “They became very angry and began throwing rocks at Christians, chanting ‘Allah Akbar.’ Many Christians were injured during the incident.”

The Christians appealed to the Muslims to have respect for those of other faith; the Muslims responded with contempt. One Muslim, Abubakar Yusuf, declared: “We have now declared a jihad against them. We are not going to allow anybody to despise Islamic teachings at their church or crusade. We will seek revenge.”

How did the Christians “despise Islamic teachings”? By preaching aspects of Christianity, such as the divinity of Christ, that Islam denies. The Christians, knowing how delicate their situation was, would never have dreamed of actually saying something critical about Islam itself; but to the Muslims who heard them, just enunciating the tenets of their Christian faith was criticism enough. And they refused to stand for it.

A few years ago, when jihadis attacked AFDI’s Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas, some Christians castigated me for co-sponsoring and speaking at the event. They said that Pamela Geller and I, as co-organizers of the event, were being needlessly provocative, poking Muslims in the eye, goading them, etc.

These charitable and enlightened Christians said that Christians should instead be deferential to others’ religious sensibilities. At the time, I responded to these people by explaining that giving in to violent intimidation (our event was a response to the jihad murder of the Charlie Hebdo Muhammad cartoonists in Paris) would only encourage more violent intimidation, and that given the fact that Muslims frequently found even basic expressions of Christian faith to be “provocative,” they were effectively cutting the ground out from under themselves and their children, making it impossible for them to practice Christianity in the future.

These incidents in Uganda are proof that this was correct. In declaring jihad and stating that the Muslims were now on a quest for revenge, Abubakar Yusuf and the Muslims who agree with him are in effect saying that the public expression of the Christian Faith mocks Islam and despises Islamic teachings. Abubakar Yusuf’s announcement that the Muslims had “declared jihad” against the Christians and would “seek revenge” against them was tantamount to a declaration that the Christians must submit to the hegemony of the Muslims, not daring to practice their faith openly, but only in private, behind closed door, and at the sufferance of their Muslim overlords.

This is exactly the status that Islamic law prescribes for Christians in lands governed by Islamic law, and so it is clear that Abubakar Yusuf is no lone fanatic, but is enunciating what many Muslims in Uganda believe to be only right and proper.

The lesson is clear, and not just for Uganda. If the advice of the cosseted, suburban Western Christians who were excoriating me for the Garland event is to be heeded, Christians should make no public expression of their faith at all, and convert to Islam, so as to avoid mocking, provoking, and offending Muslims, and poking them in the eye.

And when it comes to it, that is most likely the exact thing that those Christians will do. (Click to Source)
