WHAT IS EMPOWERING THESE ACTIVISTS?

November 6, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Last week, Jonathon Van Maren wrote a column on the public shaming of feminist Meghan Murphy. He wrote:

“The shouting crowd outside the Toronto Public Library made me nervous because of the sheer rage on the faces of those shouting for the head of a feminist woman who has been on board with every manifestation of the Sexual Revolution except the most recent one, the idea that biological men can become biological women.”

He asks the question: Why are LGBT activists so aggressive? Why the rage? His response is enlightening and should give us all cause for alarm.

“There are probably multiple answers to that question, but one in particular explains why there will never be any peaceable compromise that lets us get on with things and ignore each other: Envy. 

They are not going to let us have our schools, our beautiful children and our happy communities while they suffer. Look at their faces as they protest—these are not happy people, and they do not want us to be happy, either. 

Envy is one of the most potent forms of hatred, and they’re going to come after us with a vengeance. Even as the trans experiment comes crashing down around our ears and children find themselves infertile and impotent before even coming of age, we will be blamed for their misery. It will not be the revolutionaries, it will be the “transphobic” religious who get the blame.

I will admit that I fear their rage because I do not think we can compete with it. We have too many things that make us happy to be so angry. We cannot sustain that level of fury because we have too much to lose, and in most cases, our communities have not even recognized the threat that this movement poses, not really. 

We pretend we do, but we do very little. We think we can carry on accumulating wealth, enjoying our families, and going to church as if the entire world is not changing around us and as if the ground is not shifting beneath our feet. So ask yourself this: Could you have imagined, just a few years ago, that this would be happening? And if this is what they accomplished in such a short amount of time, what do you think they can accomplish in the next ten years?”

Think about it. Really think about it. Because this is your family, your church, and your children on the line. You may want to ignore them, but I promise you that these activists will not be ignoring you.

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN INTENT ON BECOMING GLOBAL CALIPH

There are increasing signs that Turkey’s dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, aims to turn his nation into the dominant component of a new Islamic caliphate, controlling even more territory than the Ottoman Empire.

Islam expert and author, Joel Richardson, wrote shortly after Turkey’s controversial election in which Erdogan was given virtually unrestricted power, that analysts in recent years tried “to shout down warnings that Erdogan has a desire to return to the Ottoman era.” “Today those same critics are taking a fresh look at the man they once made excuses for and even championed,” he wrote.

“Not only did Erdogan specifically avoid visiting the tomb of Ataturk (who turned Turkey into a secular government), but instead, he visited the tomb of Sultan Selim I.” Richardson explained that Selim the Grim ruled the Ottoman Empire from 1512 to 1520 and was most remembered for his expansionist conquest over Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

“Erdogan was sending a very clear message. The era of Ataturk is over. There is a new Sultan Selim the Grim in power,” Richardson wrote.

Richardson, who wrote Islamic Antichrist: “The Shocking Truth about the Real Nature of the Beast”, cites the Old Testament in warning that a “last days invasion of Israel would specifically be led by Turkey. In my book, he states, “I carefully work through Ezekiel’s prophecy to show how the Bible doesn’t point to a last-days Russian-led invasion of Israel, but instead points to an invasion led by Turkey.”

Erdogan’s intentions are becoming clearer. He told an interviewer during a recent trip to Africa, for example, his nation now has 39 embassies on the continent, up from 13. The interview Erdogan granted was with Amadou Mahtar Ba, the co-founder and executive chairman of All Africa Global Media.

He’s also boasted of his one-on-one talks with Pope Francis, French President Emmanuel Macron, Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders.

“I’ve called his holiness the pope and I’ve shared my thoughts and opinions with him. … And praise Allah, he is thinking alike. I’ve spoken to the German chancellor, and similarly President Macron of France; I’ve talked to him. And I’ve also talked to President Putin of Russia.”

The Turkish leader discussed his recent trip to Sudan, Chad and Tunisia, Muslim-majority nations in Africa. The trip brought to 24 the number of African countries Erdogan has visited, the report said.

“We still hope we can prevail in every country of the African continent through our embassies, and we are going to achieve that because we are very determined, we have many commonalities.” Erdogan said in the interview.

The issue of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel came up immediately in the questioning, with the interviewer speculating about Erdogan’s response to Africa’s “more than 500 million” Muslims on the issue.

The Turkish leader said he’s discussed the conflict – the Palestinians insist Jerusalem will be the capital of a future Palestinian state – with many Muslims and others.

He cited the recent vote in the U.N. by 128 countries to condemn the U.S. decision recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. He said Trump actually isn’t important to the process. The step to be taken forward after this moment is all about the 128 countries siding with Palestine and all of the countries which had reservations. We should get together and take up an initiative. Palestine should be recognised as an independent and sovereign state by all of these nations that voted in favour this afternoon at the U.N. And after that is accomplished, the U.S., willingly or non-willingly, will have to interpret this situation accurately.”

Richardson pointed out that since Erdogan has assumed complete control of Turkey, there are now more journalists in prison there than any other nation on the earth. The AKP-led government has assumed complete control over virtually every media outlet in the nation. Well over a hundred thousand of its own citizens have either been indefinitely imprisoned or fired from their jobs on suspicion of supporting opposition perspectives. Throughout the nation, men and woman continue to disappear randomly and suddenly, literally snatched off the streets simply for suspicion of holding critical views of the president. The current national roundup of Erdogan’s enemies, or political opponents, is eerily reminiscent of Nazi Germany. Yet this is just the beginning. Clearly, for me, it is just further evidence that Bible “end times” prophecies are playing out exactly as God planned.

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE PROPHESIED AND INEVITABLE

The following report from a respected Investment Research and Consulting company confirms the precarious state of the worlds economies. Governments with unprecedented debt are incapable of solving their countries mounting problems. Youth unemployment in many countries is at a level where societal collapse and even anarchy is possible.

A world that has largely turned away from God, and blindly accepted evolution and a history of billions of years for the cosmos, is oblivious to the truth revealed in God’s Word, about where we are in His timeline for the planet.

All of this is prophesied in God’s Word, Sadly, we are also told that much of the church largely compromises with the world and its values. However, as the world gets darker and lawlessness increases, God reveals to us that at the same time the harvest is ripe, all that is needed is workers to go out into the fields.

What is God calling you to do in these last days? Are you in a church that recognises the times and is taking seriously Jesus command to go into all the world with the Good News? If not then pray. Jesus made it possible for our Heavenly Father to send the Holy Spirit to be your counsellor, teacher and comforter. He will guide your steps if your submit to His sovereignty.

Recent up-and-down drastic volatility is a signal the big move is nearing. Currencies in Venezuela and Turkey have collapsed. Germany is selling negative 30-year bonds. And while the dollar is strong for now… this is only the opening salvo in a total economic war that the U.S. is destined to lose…A war that will see China and Russia dumping U.S. debt… bypassing the U.S. dollar… and igniting a monetary hurricane that could usher in the total collapse of America’s fiat regime. It’ll be worse than 2008 — a financial 9/11.This nightmare scenario is imminent and inevitable. As we speak, a chain reaction is taking place in the markets.And when these events come to a head within the next few months, we’ll witness the final unravelling of these historically overpriced markets.The greenback will collapse…Gold will spike to between $3,000 and $5,000 per ounce… Specific mining stocks could climb to 4,237%…It could be the defining moment of the 21st century. We’ve recorded an urgent emergency briefing on the coming crisis.

Stories like this one will be commonplace. Thomas Cook declared bankruptcy last Monday. The firm runs hotels, resorts, airlines and cruises for 19 million people a year in 16 countries. It currently has 600,000 people abroad, forcing governments and insurance companies to co-ordinate a huge rescue operation.

Whitehall sources admitted that a rescue operation was likely to be complex and drawn out, with around 150,000 Britons on Thomas Cook holidays at about 60 destinations overseas. It could cost the taxpayer £600 million.

ARE PROPHESIED MIDDLE EAST WARS IMMINENT?

Iran building new precision missile facility on Syria-Iraq border

Mideast Iran War Games Missile Iran

Based on satellite photos released by ImageSat International, Fox News reported that an Iranian base is under construction on the border between Syria and Iraq, which appears capable of serving the Islamic Republic’s precision missile program.

NY Times: Israel was ‘far closer’ to attacking Iran than anyone realised

Even as Israel and Iran currently confront each other on a number of different fronts, and after the U.S. pullout from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord under President Donald Trump, the New York Times has published “The Secret History of the Push to Strike Iran.”

It details the debates within and between the U.S. and Israeli governments over whether to attack the Islamic Republic in order to thwart a potential Iranian nuclear threat, and in 2012 an Israeli attack “came far closer to happening than has previously been reported.”

“In the summer of 2012, American spy satellites detected clusters of Israeli aircraft making what seemed to be early preparations for an attack” on Iran, says The New York Times.

“One former senior Israeli security official, looking back at that time, said that it wasn’t until then that he believed the prime minister [Netanyahu] was serious about striking Iran,” says the article, written by Ronen Bergman, an Israeli security correspondent, and Mark Mazzetti, a Washington-based investigative reporter.

“Behind the scenes, Israel was indeed preparing for a strike. Its military and intelligence services had cut the time needed for the final preparations — for the attack and for the war that might ensue,” the correspondents write.

Michael Oren, the Israeli ambassador in Washington at the time, told the newspaper: “I went to bed every night, if I went to bed at all, with the phone close to my ear. I was ready to be called in by Israel and sent to the White House or the State Department to tell them we had attacked, or if they already knew from their own sources, straight to CNN.”

The Times report says that the Israeli attack “came far closer to happening than has previously been reported.”

“Netanyahu insists that the threat of an Israeli strike ‘was not a bluff — it was real. And only because it was real were the Americans truly worried about it,’” says the report. He pulled back from the brink only because he still could not get a majority of his cabinet to support him. “If I’d had a majority, I would have done it,” he says. “Unequivocally,” according to the article.

‘Israel must pay,’ vows Hezbollah terror chief in new threats

World Israel News Staff and AP – The leader of Lebanon’s Iran-backed terror army, Hezbollah, broadcast new threats on Saturday related to air strikes within Lebanese territory it believes Israel carried out.

Terror chief Hassan Nasrallah reiterated his group’s intention to retaliate against the Jewish state, saying Israel “must pay a price” for its aggression.

Following one of the drone strikes, reports indicated a key facility related to Hezbollah’s Iranian-backed precision missile program was struck, with critical infrastructure destroyed.

On Saturday, Nasrallah categorically denied Israeli claims about facilities to produce precision-guided missiles in Lebanon. According to Nasrallah, such accusations by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are “lie[s]” to justify Israeli aggression against Lebanon.

Anti-tank missiles fired at Israel from Lebanon, bomb shelters open

“A number of anti-aircraft missiles were fired from Lebanon at an IDF base and military vehicles in the area. There are a number of confirmed hits,” the army said in a statement. The missiles were fired at an Israeli base and IDF vehicles near Moshav Avivim, which is located less than one kilometre from the border with Lebanon. Hezbollah claimed it destroyed a tank. IDF confirms that at least one vehicle was hit. Israel returned fire at targets in southern Lebanon. Residents up to four kilometers from the Lebanon border were directed to open bomb shelters and to remain in their homes, Ynet reports.

Palestinians fire 5 rockets at southern Israel as border riots rage on

The rockets were launched by terrorists on Friday night, setting off red alert sirens in communities in Southern Israel.

By Reuters and Algemeiner Staff

Five rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip toward Israel late Friday night, the Israeli military confirmed after rocket warning sirens sounded in the Israeli border town of Sderot and two nearby villages shortly before midnight.

Israel responded with tank and air strikes on a number of Hamas military targets in the northern Gaza Strip, an Israeli military spokesman said. Palestinian officials said no one was injured.

At the same time, the weekly riots on the Gaza-Israel border continued, with two rioters shot by IDF forces.

An Israeli military spokesman said troops guarding the border on Friday were faced with more than 6,000 demonstrators at several points along the fence, some hurling explosive devices and firebombs. He said that some briefly managed to cross the fence before returning to Gaza, and that Israeli forces responded with riot dispersal measures. Around 210 Palestinians have been killed since the riots began in March 2018, Gaza medical officials say.

Egypt, Qatar, and United Nations officials have been working to keep the border calm in recent months.


ROAD MAP OF THE END TIMES

There is a road map to the end times. Two passages in Scripture, each describing the same 13 events are found in exactly the same order. What will it tell us about Jesus’s coming on the clouds? How does the Tribulation period begin? What’s the timing of the Rapture? When is the Antichrist revealed?

Another great video from Nelson Walters, this time to provide the Road Map of end times events as given by Jesus in both the Olivet Discourse and in Revelation 6. What are the odds of these being the same events and in the same order? Nelson reveals that the odds are extremely high.

God has provided this road map for a reason. As I have said many times, there are far more prophecies about Jesus second coming than there were of His first coming. Surely, it is to prepare the church particularly as God is going to allow the church to experience tribulation, even great tribulation, just prior to His return to rapture the saints.

THE MARK OF THE BEAST IS NOT TOO FAR OFF

The biggest asset bubble in history and booms always bust.

U.S Household Net Worth As A Percent of GDP - 11-07-19

In expectation of the next bust, there was this warning from the ‘central bank of central banks’…

Bank for International Settlements (BIS) chief Agustin Carstens has urged top central banks to preserve their ammunition for more serious economic downturns rather than deplete it chasing higher growth.

How much interest rate ammo does the IMF think the average central banker should have in reserve?

Severe recessions have historically required 3–6 percentage points cut in policy rates.

And as if we didn’t already know, the IMF tells us…

If another crisis happens, few countries would have that kind of room for monetary policy to respond.

Without the three–six percentage point buffer, how do our central banker bandits get out of this pickle?

Back in February 2019, the IMF released a paper titled…

Cashing In: How to Make Negative Interest Rates Work

The obvious problem with negative rates is that no one wants to be charged to deposit their funds with a bank…it goes against everything we’ve grown up with.

Better to take out the cash out and keep it under the mattress or in a safe-deposit box.

The banks are well aware that customers have this option…and have used this option.

This has been the experience in Europe. In their efforts to discourage customers from withdrawing cash, banks have been caught in a real bind.

The banks have elected to not pass on the negative rates to customer accounts…instead, they’re absorbing the costs. Not good for the bottom line. Hence, we can expect to see more Deutsche Bank scenarios; “European banking giant axes 18,000 jobs” BBC News,  10th July 2019.

The system has become so dependent on debt and central bank intervention that it’s incapable of functioning on its own.

The dire economic and social consequences of a collapsing system will force policy makers to act…do something, do anything.

And that something and anything, is most likely going to be deeply negative rates and the monetising of government deficits.

Modern Monetary Theory is nothing more than printing money to finance government deficits…allowing governments to go on an unlimited spend-a-thon.

Of course, we’ll be told this officially counterfeited money will be spent responsibly. The chaos we see unfolding in our time is exactly what God has told us in His Word will happen in the “end times”. Jesus said, “See, I have told you beforehand.” Matthew 24:25

Much of this post was taken from the article; “A Glimpse into the Future… It’s nor pretty” 10th July, 2019 by Vern Gowdie editor of The Rum Rebellion.

2008 PROPHETIC WARNING OF FOOD SHORTAGES IN OUR TIME

Back in 2008, John Paul Jackson released a prophetic warning for America that he entitled “The Perfect Storm”.  At that time he released a public prophetic bulletin which you can find right here, and he also released a DVD which went into much greater detail about what is coming.

John Paul Jackson Prophecy Fulfilled: “Devastation From Storms Will Dramatically Cut Into Various Harvests And the National Food Storage Will Deplete”

In the DVD, he specifically stated that most of what he was sharing wouldn’t happen for about a decade.  In other words, most of what he was shown was supposed to start happening during the time period that we have now entered into. And that is precisely what is happening.  John Paul Jackson warned us that things would seem to get better for a time, but then after that America would be hit with crisis after crisis.

Torrential Rain Of Biblical Proportions Is Causing Immense Devastation For Midwest Farmers

The wettest 12 months in all of U.S. history was followed by the second wettest May on record, and for some parts of the Midwest the month of June will be even worse. Some portions of Ohio and Indiana have gotten 10 more inches of rain since Friday, and more rain is literally falling on the Midwest. When I describe what we have witnessed as “torrential rain of Biblical proportions”, I am not exaggerating even a little bit. Even before we got to the month of June, farmers in the middle of the country were already dealing with a disaster unlike anything that they had ever experienced before. And just when everyone thought that it couldn’t possibly get any worse, it did. Since Friday, the rainfall totals in the Ohio Valley have been staggering.

At this point, millions of acres that farmers had intended to plant with corn will go completely unused. And according to a Washington Post article that was republished by MSN corn futures are surging because traders are anticipating “an impending shortage” of corn…

For many Midwest farmers, this will be their last year in operation. Farm bankruptcies had already risen to the highest level since the last recession even before all of this rain, and this unprecedented disaster will be the final nail in the coffin for a lot of farms that have been teetering on the brink.

According to one recent survey, it is expected that the number of farm loan defaults over the next year will be double what we saw in 2017

The true scope of this crisis will not be fully known until harvest time rolls around, but right now the outlook for U.S. agricultural production in 2019 is exceedingly grim.

It is evident our planet is becoming increasingly unstable and global weather patterns are changing dramatically. Exactly what is prophesied before the time of Jesus Second Coming. Time is short, so let’s make sure we stay focused on what the Holy Spirit is showing us is God’s will for our lives this day. I love how the Apostle Paul put it in Romans 8:18… For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

IS YOUR CHURCH AUTHENTIC OR PART OF PROPHESIED LAST DAYS APOSTASY?

Pastor Francis Chan says he’s tired of man-made revivals and warned the church that there’s no time for “playing games” any more. Chan’s comments came during a February 6 speech at Liberty University’s Convocation gathering.

Chan, an avid surfer, compared man-made revivals to a wave pool—controlled and fun, but ultimately predictable and artificial. He says he came to that realisation while visiting a wave pool in Waco, Texas.

“It’s so different than going in the ocean, where it’s like, ‘Gosh, I don’t know if something huge is going to come.’ There have been times where we’ve driven for like an hour and just sat in the water—nothing happened. … There’s so many things that can happen in the ocean. And I thought, ‘This is so nice. You can just go to a wave pool and you won’t have any fear.’

“And when I looked at that thing, I thought, ‘Gosh, you know, this is what church services sometimes feel like to me.’ It’s like this wave that you can create. You know at 9:15 this is going to happen, and you know at 9:20, and then you know at 9:40 it’s going to start dying out because it has to. It’s just going to happen. And you can do it over and over and over again. And I feel like for many years I’ve been content with that, because it’s fun and everyone’s having a good time. But man, don’t you read the Scriptures and go ‘Gosh, there was so much that was unpredictable’? Where it really was a move from God. It wasn’t mad-made. It wasn’t this man-made wave, but things would happen that were out of your control.”

Chan says he is done with artificial moves of God and instead said he craves an authentic move of the Holy Spirit.

“I’ve been praying that this would be something that is not man-made, because I feel like I know how to make a wave in a room,” Chan says. “And I’m just done with it. There’s just no time for that anymore. I’m just done playing games.”

Jesus told the parable of the Ten Virgins as part of His response to the disciples question “what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” All ten virgins were waiting for the bridegroom, so we can presume they ALL thought they were Christians. What was the outcome? ALL slept (is Jesus telling us that the church will be asleep) and worse still half of them were not born again (no oil for their lamps). The Lord said to them, “depart from me, “I do not know you”. Could it be that 50% of people in our churches today are not saved?

I believe this wake up call to the church by Francis Chan is timely. Suggest you share it with others.

LAWLESSNESS IN THE LAST DAYS

Jesus said that just before His return to rule and reign in the Millennium with a rod of iron, that the world would be in a state of lawlessness, as in the days of Noah. God has told us exactly what will unfold in the years before He returns. The Old Testament, written hundreds of years before Jesus’ birth, contains over 300 prophecies that Jesus fulfilled through His birth, life, death and resurrection. Sadly, the religious people of His day, the Sadducee’s and Pharisee’s didn’t get it and whilst there are far more prophecies about Jesus second coming than His first coming, the religious people of our day are not getting it as well. Wake up church.

“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man (JESUS) be.” Matthew 24:37

The following report reveals that the world is totally out of control and governments have run out of options to fix it. Whilst these are the figures for the USA, let me tell you the numbers for Europe, China, Japan are worse. What follows is anarchy and we are seeing it more and more as is shown in France with the Yellow Vest movement.

According to the U.S. Treasury Department, America’s national debt was 22 trillion dollars on December 31, 2018. 

The U.S. will have had a deficit in 88 out of 100 years and only 4 out of 62 years with a surplus.

America can’t even balance a single year’s budget, much less start paying down its net debt. We regret to conclude realistically THE ACCUMULATED DEBT IS UNPAYABLE.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the interest expense on debt is expected to increase 186% to $929 billion annually by 2029 — surpassing all categories except for Medicare and Social Security. That is almost a trillion dollars annually! While these projections assume interest rates on 10-year Treasury bonds will remain below 3.8%,

A ONE PERCENT HIGHER-THAN-EXPECTED INTEREST RATE ON THE 10-YEAR BONDS WOULD ADD ANOTHER $1.9 TRILLION IN OVERALL INTEREST EXPENSE! 

 

WHAT DID JESUS SAY ABOUT THE TIME OF HIS SECOND COMING?

“And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars…. (Middle East). For nation will rise up against nation and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated for My name’s sake” Matthew 24:5-9

The following report from Washington, 10th May 2019, reveals a further escalation of tensions in the Middle East that cannot end well. As explained in previous posts, Muslims worldwide are expecting the imminent return of their Messiah (Mahdi). Muslims believe that the Mahdi is the restorer who will come at the end of time to establish the reign of Justice and righteousness. Moreover, Iran’s leaders believe that they can prepare the way for the Shiite Muslims awaited Messiah with cataclysmic events directed at Israel and America (The Great Satan). Are we seeing this in play in our time?

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon approved the deployment of a Patriot missile defence battery and a Navy ship to the Middle East amid increasing tensions between the United States and Iran.

The USS Arlington and a Patriot battery will join the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group and a U.S. Air Force bomber task force, which were deployed earlier in the week to the region in response to “heightened Iranian readiness to conduct offensive operations.”

The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln transits the Indian Ocean.

The additional U.S. forces to the Middle East is the Trump administration’s latest effort to pressure Tehran over its support for weapons proliferation and extremist groups in the Middle East.

“The Department of Defence continues to closely monitor the activities of the Iranian regime, their military and proxies. On Wednesday, Trump ordered new sanctions placed on Iranian metals, Tehran’s largest non-petroleum-related sources of export revenue. The U.S. also took aim at Iranian oil by effectively ordering countries worldwide to stop buying Tehran’s oil or face sanctions of their own.

Additionally, the U.S. designated Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist group. Iran responded with threats to close the Gulf’s Strait of Hormuz, where about a third of the world’s oil export vessels pass. The U.S. then announced it was expediting the deployment of a carrier strike group equipped with bomber aircraft to the region.

How wonderful it is to have God’s Word (The Bible) that reveals to us exactly what will unfold prior to Jesus second coming. Sadly, as prophesied, the world increasingly is rejecting God’s Word and His commands so cannot know the truth.

We are told in God’s Word that “where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty”. Liberty to do what? Liberty to do what I want, liberty to do what is wrong in God’s sight. No! It is a power to die for the truth. Do we trust God enough to face death gladly, if it His will for us at the time?
