Officials warn that intense flu season will continue…
Adults who get a flu shot are 36 percent less likely to get the disease, while for children the figure was an unexpectedly high 59 percent, U.S. health officials said on Thursday, predicting that the current “intense” season could continue for weeks. Anyone not already immunized should get a flu shot despite the lateness of the season, because “some protection is better than none,” one of the officials told a news briefing.
A total of 63 children in the United States have died of influenza this season, and three-quarters of them did not get a vaccine, said Anne Schuchat, acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “This flu season continues to be extremely challenging and intense, with very high levels of office visits for flu and hospitalization rates, all indications that flu activity is high and likely to continue for several more weeks,” Schuchat said.

Expect These 3 Surprises When You Get to Heaven
Feb 16, 2018 | 0  |     
Expect These 3 Surprises When You Get to Heaven
(By R.T Kendall) “I expect three surprises when I get to heaven.” So Martin Luther, the German Reformer who turned the world upside down in the sixteenth century by his rediscovery of justification by faith alone, is often quoted as saying. First, there will be people in heaven he did not expect to be there. Second, there will be people not present in heaven he was certain would be there. Third is the greatest surprise of all—that he is there himself!
I suspect Luther was right in his speculation. I think many of us may be surprised to see people in heaven we assumed were not fit for heaven. Could this be because we set a standard of fitness that is different from what the Lord Himself requires? One of the least-known but most important teachings of John Calvin (1509–1564) is what he calls “implicit faith.” It is faith that lacks a full knowledge of truth but that is nonetheless true faith. He cited the woman of Samaria as an example.
“Many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, ‘He told me all that I ever did.’ … And many more believed because of His word. They said to the woman, ‘Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this Man is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world” (John 4:39, 41-42).

Florida Pastor Arrested in Prostitution Sting

Florida Pastor Arrested in Prostitution Sting
A Florida pastor was arrested in a prostitution sting this week. Richard Cecil was a pastor at The Father’s House in Fort Myers, but now runs a ministry out of his home, according to reports. Cecil’s arrest report says the minister made phone contact with a person who later was identified as an undercover officer and arranged to meet at the hotel.
He then allegedly negotiated performance of a sexual act for $200 and then was arrested, according to USA Today. Cecil denies the allegations and waived his arraignment, asking instead for a trial by jury. An NBC affiliate reports Cecil often prayed at the beginning of Lee County Commissioner’s meetings in 2005-06.

UPDATE: Seventeen killed in South Florida high school shooting
Seventeen people were shot to death and many others wounded Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in a horrific episode of school violence that ended with the arrest of a former student. Panicked parents streamed to this affluent section of northwest Broward County, as news helicopters broadcast the incident live, police officers crouched behind cars with guns drawn and students congregated on streets, many crying, hugging and calling friends and family.
In a blurry Snapchat video from inside the school, a man yelled, “Oh, my God,” as the pop-pop, pop-pop of gunshots rang out and students screamed. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said 17 people were killed, including both students and adults, with two shot outside the school, one in the street, 12 inside the school and two dying from their wounds at the hospital.

Israel said to fear Assad chemical weapons spillover into Golan Heights
The Foreign Ministry fears poison gas may leak into Israel if the Assad regime uses chemical weapons against rebels near the Golan Heights, and has reportedly warned of a punishing response should such a situation unfold. The ministry sent a classified cable to 15 Israeli ambassadors around the world, providing the envoys with guidelines for sending strong messages against Iran, Syria and Hezbollah to their host countries, following last week’s infiltration of an Iranian drone and subsequent downing of an Israeli F-16, Channel 10 news reported Wednesday.In acknowledging Jerusalem’s fear of chemical spillover into the Golan Heights, the cable directed the envoys to convey that “it must be made clear that such an incident would require Israel to respond in the strongest possible terms.” The Foreign Ministry asked its ambassadors to emphasize to the senior political leaders in the countries where they are stationed that Iran’s entrenchment in Syria could increase the Islamic Republic’s desire to carry out additional attacks on Israel, which would lead to an escalation of hostilities in the entire region.

We Don’t Need Any More ‘Shades of Grey’

We Don’t Need Any More ‘Shades of Grey’
(By J. Lee Grady) Last weekend, the final movie in the revolting Fifty Shades of Grey franchise hit screens. The third and last chapter of this sick soap opera is over. And we are left scratching our heads as we ponder why films that glorify sexual abuse and sadistic bondage are still popular. We just watched the ugly Harvey Weinstein scandal unfold. We have listened to countless women tell how they were abused by film executives, movie stars and congressmen. Yet this new film, Fifty Shades Freed, made almost $39 million at the box office last weekend.
Why, why, why are women attracted to films in which the main female character enjoys being abused? When the novel Fifty Shades of Grey was published in 2011, critics described it as “dull and poorly written,” “depressing” and “a sad joke.” Yet, it sold 100 million copies. Women were fascinated by the dark tale of a 21-year-old college student, Ana Steele, who falls in love with a handsome but mysterious billionaire named Christian Grey after she interviews him for a newspaper.

God’s Enduring Promise When You Face a Thorn in Your Flesh
Feb 14, 2018 | 0  |     

God’s Enduring Promise When You Face a Thorn in Your Flesh
(By Ben Godwin) Jesus never promised us trouble-free living. In fact, He predicted the opposite—“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But be of good cheer. I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). The psalmist added another dose of reality, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Ps. 34:19). Believe it or not, we need our problems to help us learn, grow, mature and become stronger. Otherwise, we’d get complacent.

Paul Evans said, “Adversity is God’s university.” How true! It’s the hardships we face that teach us the nature of God and allow our faith to grow. How could we know God is a healer if we were never sick? How could we know Him as our provider if we never had a need? How could we know Him as a Comforter if we never experienced loneliness or grief? How could we know Him as a Savior if we were never lost? Without a battle there is no victory and without a test there is no testimony!

Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Lifts Ban on LGBT Staff for Some Roles
The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, a Georgia-based network of 1,800 churches with missionaries in more than 30 countries around the world, announced Friday that it has lifted an 18-year hiring ban on practicing homosexuals for some roles but will not consider them for leadership roles in the organization. “CBF is moving from a hiring policy focused exclusively on sexuality to a policy that focuses on Jesus and His work to transform the world,” CBF Executive Coordinator Suzii Paynter said of the
organization’s new hiring policy. “We are a Fellowship, a big tent of faithful believers and autonomous, innovative churches in partnership. While we do not agree on everything, we have shown Baptists and others that we can come together in a relatively short amount of time, focus on what unites us and come of out it poised for a bright future.” In the organization’s previous hiring policy, CBF leaders pointed to an adherence to a traditional biblical understanding of human sexuality as a requirement for employees.

China warns it will ‘take action’ if India sends troops to crisis-hit Maldives

China warns it will ‘take action’ if India sends troops to crisis-hit Maldives
Beijing will “take action” if India sends troops to the Maldives, Chinese state media has warned. It comes after a Supreme Court in the Maldives overturned the conviction of an opposition politician, prompting a political crisis.  “India should exercise restraint,” an editorial in the state-run Global Times reads. “Without UN empowerment, there would be no righteous cause for any armed force to intervene… “China will not interfere in the internal affairs of the Maldives, but that does not mean that Beijing will sit idly by as New Delhi breaks the principle.

If India one-sidedly sends troops to the Maldives, China will take action to stop New Delhi. India should not underestimate China’s opposition to unilateral military intervention,” the op-ed continues. It comes amid a political crisis in the Maldives which began earlier this month, after the Supreme Court threw out the conviction of opposition leader and exiled former President Mohammed Nasheed and ordered that 12 parliamentarians who had been stripped of their seats be reinstated. President Abdulla Yameen rejected the court’s ruling, imposed a state of emergency, and arrested two of the Supreme Court justices.

NASA to investigate 10,000-year-old rock that ‘shows paintings of UFOs’…
A number of prehistoric drawings have sparked a local government to seek the help of NASA after the images appeared to depict extraterrestrial life. In the footage, a narrator explains how a number of art pieces have been revealed. Discovered in Charama, India, the images appear to show aliens and UFOs, similar to scenes of a sci-fi movie. According to local archaeologist JR Bhagat it is unclear as to what the images reveal. He said:
“The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. “Extensive research is needed for further findings. “Charama presently doesn’t have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject.“ He also revealed that some of the features of the paintings were unclear and the characters appeared to be wielding weapons.

Sanhedrin and Temple Movement Issue Silver Half Shekel With Images of Trump and Cyrus
In gratitude to US President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Jerusalem, the nascent Sanhedrin and the Mikdash (Temple) Educational Center are minting a replica of the silver half-shekel Biblically mandated to be donated by every Jewish male to the Temple. The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less, than the half shekel, when they give the offering of Hashem, to make atonement for your souls.” Exodus 30:15
“Gratitude is an important and holy trait,” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman of the nascent Sanhedrin told Breaking Israel News. “He did a great and historical deed that the Jewish People are grateful for.” An image of President Trump will be engraved alongside an image of the ancient Persian King Cyrus, who facilitated the building of the Second Temple that ended the Babylonian Exile in 538 BCE.

‘The View’ Host Joy Behar Says It’s ‘Mental Illness’ to Think Jesus Talks to You
“The View” host Joy Behar said on Tuesday that it’s essentially “mental illness” to believe that “Jesus talks to you,” with co-host Sunny Hostin saying that she’s not so sure she wants her “vice president speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.”  These comments came during a conversation about Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former “Apprentice” star who briefly became a White House staffer before reportedly being terminated.
Newman made waves this week when she uttered some shocking comments about Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith.“As bad as y’all think Trump is, you should be worried about Pence,” she said on CBS’ “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition,” a reality TV show she now appears on after her White House stint. “Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life. We would be begging for days of Trump if Pence became president, that’s all I’m saying. He’s extreme.” READ MORE http://www.faithwire.com/2018/02/14/the-view-host-joy-behar-says-its-mental-illness-to-think-jesus-talks-to-you/


Australia’s Churches See Threat in New Same-Sex Marriage Law

Australia’s Churches See Threat in New Same-Sex Marriage Law
Christian churches in Australia are calling for a Religious Freedom Act that would limit and override the anti-discrimination laws across their states and territories.  According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the proposed law would allow church-run organizations – including schools and elderly care homes – the right to hire and fire staff in accordance with their values. For example, those who don’t want to
associate with same-sex marriages wouldn’t have to. “Any religious organization would want to maintain its moral standards around family life and sexual conduct – at least the right to do so,” author Patrick Parkinson, a professor of law at the University of Sydney and a Freedom for Faith board member said. He continued, “Christians are not into freedom to discriminate, they’re really into freedom to select.”

Israeli Minister Signs Petition to Raise Israeli Flag on Temple Mount
Israeli Minister of Culture, Miri Regev (Likud) became the latest dignitary to sign a petition to raise the Israeli flag over the Temple Mount, the Jewish people’s holiest site.  The petition, which was put out by World Likud, a global extension of the Likud political party in Israel, and the French Zionist organization, Israël is Forever reads as follows: We will raise the flag on the Temple Mount! 50 years after the unification of Jerusalem, this is the reality we live in:

Jews do not have free access to the Temple Mount
Only Jews are not allowed to pray on the Temple Mount
There is not safety and security on the Temple Mount
It is prohibited to raise the Israeli flag on the Temple Mount premises
The Temple Mount is not in our hands! We must change this absurdity! We therefore are calling to express our sovereignty on the Temple Mount and allow freedom of religious practice for all religions, which will bring safety and security to all those visiting the Temple Mount.

Hundreds of Millions of Christians Face Persecution Across the World
For the sixteenth year in a row, North Korea is the worlds worst persecutor of Christians according to the annual World Watch List report distributed and compiled by Open Doors. Yet, American organizations such as CNN and the NYTimes are actively praising the sister of the most murderous regime leader on the planet. In addition, according to Open Doors, there are several drivers of persecution throughout the world, number one being the spread of radical Islam.
The world over there are over 215 million Christians living in persecution, and until 2017 according to another organization that studies Christian persecution, persecution.org, the United States was among the top 12 worst Christian Persecution Nations. However, in 2017, the Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, an Evangelical Christian, announced that the United States would no longer rely on the United Nations to aid the afflicted Christians across the world, as the UN was failing Christians across the world.

Hailstorm strikes Cordoba, Argentina producing 9 inch hail, Potentially breaking record
Unofficial reports coming from Cordoba, Argentina mention a 23 cm (9 inches) large hailstone that fell on February 8, 2018. If confirmed, this will break the current world record for largest hailstone. A violent hailstorm hit Cordoba, Argentina on Thursday afternoon, February 8, 2018. The storm started around 16:30 local time with small hailstones that didn’t cause much damage. However, hailstones grew bigger over the next 20 minutes and eventually reached up to 20 cm (7 inches) and more. Although it’s still not
officially confirmed, the largest hailstone had a diameter of 23 cm (9 inches). Currently, the largest hailstone officially confirmed fell on Vivian, South Dakota, US on July 23, 2010. It measured 20.32 cm (8.0 inches) in diameter, 46.99 cm (18.5 inches) in circumference, and weighed in 0.878 kg (1.9375 pounds). Hail can reach this size only if thunderstorm updrafts are strong enough to keep it suspended in the air. That would require vertical winds exceeding 193 km/h (120 mph), Capital Weather Gang meteorologists explained.

Churches ditching communion, Avoiding handshakes and other methods to combat the Flu
The United States is experiencing an increase in influenza infections this winter compared with recent years, leading many churches and dioceses to take extra precautions amid reports of hundreds of Americans dying of flu-related complications, including more than 50 children. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta has estimated that nearly 15,000 people have been hospitalized since October, which is double the number last flu season.
Congregations across the denominational spectrum are giving advice and warnings to their members and are even changing certain aspects of their rituals and ceremonies. Here are five examples of local congregations and regional bodies that are altering communion and church activities to help ease the worries of some and hopefully curb the infection rate.

Billy Graham on Why Christians Should Avoid Today’s ‘Demonic’ Witchcraft
Evangelist Billy Graham has cautioned Christians against buying objects that claim to possess “spiritual healing” powers, as such items — no matter how innocent they seem — are “demonic” and “opposed to God.” The 99-year-old founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association answered a reader’s question on his website regarding whether or not “lucky charms” actually affect the wellbeing of users.
The reader wrote: “I have bad arthritis, and I saw an ad in one of those supermarket papers for a gold-plated charm that they say will heal me. The ad says it’s been prayed over by a spiritual healer, and has special magical healing powers. Should I send for it? It’s kind of expensive.” Graham began by urging the reader to refrain from wasting their money on such an item, or anything else that claims to have magical powers. “Nothing like this has any medical evidence to support its dubious claims, nor should you trust what the sellers say about it,” he said.

Flu Is Causing 1 in 10 American Deaths and Climbing, May kill 4,000 a Week
The amount of influenza ravaging the U.S. this year rivals levels normally seen when an altogether new virus emerges, decimating a vulnerable population that hasn’t had a chance to develop any defenses. It’s an unexpected phenomenon that public health experts are still trying to decode. The levels of influenza-like illnesses being reported now are as high as the peak of the swine flu epidemic in 2009, and exceed the last severe seasonal flu outbreak in 2003 when a new strain started circulating, said Anne Schuchat,
the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s acting director. Swine flu, which swept the globe in 2009 and 2010, sickened 60.8 million Americans, hospitalized 274,304 and killed 12,469, according to CDC data. Deaths from the current outbreak will likely far outstrip those of the 2009-2010 season. “This is a difficult season, and we can’t predict how much longer the severe season will last,” she said. “I wish there was better news, but everything we are looking at is bad news.” READ MORE http://endtimeheadlines.org/2018/02/flu-is-causing-1-in-10-american-deaths-and-climbing-may-kill-4000-a-week/

Army conducts drills using ground robots that shoot…
In a historic first, the Army conducted a live fire exercise with a remote-controlled ground combat vehicle armed with a .50-caliber machine gun. It plans to conduct more exercises with more heavily armed ground robots within the next couple of years. The demonstration was part of the annual Northern Strike exercise, which took place last July and August at Michigan’s Camp Grayling. Primarily
geared toward reserve units, this year’s event debuted an unmanned, heavily armed M113 armored personnel carrier. The driver and the weapons operator followed behind in a slightly larger M577 command post vehicle. “The scenario here was a complex breach in a minefield,” Paul Rogers, director of the Army’s Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center, or TARDEC, said at the AUVSI conference on Wednesday.

Scientists warn of unusually cold Sun…Another Ice Age coming?

Scientists warn of unusually cold Sun…Another Ice Age coming?
Remember the 1989 science fiction novel The Dying Sun by Gary Blackwood, where people were forced to migrate from the US to Mexico because of the freezing weather triggered by cooling down of the Sun? Scientists are now afraid that such a situation can become a reality in the near future. The question that now arises is, are we at all prepared for another ice age? A study by the University of California San Diego has claimed that by 2050, the Sun is expected to become cool. You might think “what’s the big deal,”
but remember that this means the solar activities that create the heat of the Sun to sustain life on Earth may diminish. And the last time it happened was in the 17th Century, when the Thames River froze. Scientists call this the “Maunder Minimum”. Physicist Dan Lubin at the university and his team  studied the past event and concluded that were are in for a worse case. The Sun is expected to get much dimmer than last time and, in scientific terms, it is a “grand minimum” — a time period in the 11-year solar cycle when the solar activities are at the lowest point.

Record snow hits Japan, kills 7 and traps 1,400 vehicles for over 48 hours
Record snowfall that hit the Hokuriku region of northwestern Japan this week killed seven people in snow-related accidents and injured at least 34. The storm brought traffic to a standstill and trapped people in 1,400 vehicles for more than 48 hours. Record heavy snow disrupted traffic and everyday life in areas along the Sea of Japan coast, NHK reported Tuesday, February 6. Kaga City in Ishikawa Prefecture was under 194 cm (76.4 inches) of snow as of 08:00 local time Wednesday, February 7 while the snowfall
in Fukui City in Fukui Prefecture, some 320 km (199 miles) west of Tokyo, reached 134 cm (52.7 inches), the worst since 1981. More than 60 cm (23.6 inches) of snow fell on the city in just two days and 22 cm (8.6 inches) within 15 hours ending 15:00 local time February 7. At the time, the city was under 147 cm (57.9 inches) of snow. This is seven times more than average for the region and the worst in 56 years. The snow trapped as much as 1,400 vehicles on a stretch of National Route No. 8 in Fukui Prefecture Tuesday night, forcing them to sleep in cars and walk for kilometers to purchase food and water.

Artificial Creation, Lab-Made Humans: Scientists Grow Human Eggs to Full Maturity Outside the Womb

Artificial Creation, Lab-Made Humans: Scientists Grow Human Eggs to Full Maturity Outside the Womb
(By Nate Brown) For the first time, scientists have developed human eggs, outside the of the human body, from the earliest stages in ovarian tissue and grown them to full maturity. The research paves the way towards lab-grown humans, and further increases the reality that mankind is attempting to remove the Hand of God from creation. Artificial wombs, artificial eggs, artificial intelligence, all of which was once science fiction, is now becoming reality. Happening now is the research to create children outside of a mothers womb, and even further, entirely design the creation through manipulating its DNA. For the reason of alleviating infertility, scientists have sidestepped the ethical boundaries, and are directly closing in on developing methods to create lab-grown babies.
“Being able to fully develop human eggs in the lab could widen the scope of available fertility treatments. We are now working on optimizing the conditions that support egg development in this way and studying how healthy they are,” said Evelyn Telfer, who co-led the work. “This early data suggests this may well be feasible in the future,” said Ali Abbara, a senior clinical lecturer in endocrinology at Imperial College London. “(But) the technology remains at an early stage, and much more work is needed to make sure that the technique is safe and optimized before we ascertain whether these eggs remain normal during the process, and can be fertilized to form embryos that could lead to healthy babies.” – See Works Cited for Sourcing Information.

Have NASA scientists discovered the location of Heaven 6 Quadrillion miles away?

Have NASA scientists discovered the location of Heaven 6 Quadrillion miles away?
A glorious God-like image captured by NASA telescopes aimed at a galaxy Six quadrillion miles away has sparked online speculation that the US space agency has discovered Heaven. NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array – or NuSTAR – was aimed at a pulsar (or neutron star) called PSR B1509-58 a staggering distance from earth. What they were sent back – from 17,000 light years away – was a spectral vision of an outstretched hand – which has become known as the Hand of God. And the eerie
image is so powerful that many online have speculated NASA had found Heaven itself. The ‘hand’ is believed to be the remnants of the star which went supernova and ejected an enormous cloud of material – leaving pulsar PSR B1509-58 in its wake. The remnant cloud, when viewed via high-energy X-rays, shows up as a green, red and blue hand, a staggering 175 light-years across. NuSTAR telescope principal investigator Fiona Harrison, of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, said: “NuSTAR’s unique viewpoint, in seeing the highest-energy X-rays, is showing us well-studied objects and regions in a whole new light.

Kirk Cameron Warns ‘Kids Begin Sexting at Age 10’ and Offers Parents Help

Kirk Cameron Warns ‘Kids Begin Sexting at Age 10’ and Offers Parents Help
Actor and Christian evangelist Kirk Cameron warned parents that kids begin sexting as early as 10 years old. “Did you know kids now admit that the average age they began sexting is 10-years-old,” Cameron said in a Facebook video. “We also know that the average age kids get their first smartphone is 10-years-old.” As shocking as that statistic may be, Cameron said he does not want families to be alarmed. “Don’t panic, real help is on the way,” the Christian minister assured. The former “Growing Pains” actor has
become quite the advocate for marriages and families in recent years and he went on to invite people to his upcoming theatrical event, which aims to help parents connect with their children in today’s digitally-driven age. Sexting is usually defined as sharing nude or nearly nude photos of through mobile or internet communication. According to Cox Communications, 80 percent of teens who have sexted are under the age of 18, and a 2012 JAMA study said over half (57 percent) of teens reported that they had been asked to send a sext before.

Is the Increasing snowfall in the Sahara desert a sign of Messianic redemption?

Is the Increasing snowfall in the Sahara desert a sign of Messianic redemption?
Snow in the Sahara desert has been a rare phenomenon, yet the Algerian town of Ain Sefra experienced on Tuesday its second snowfall of this winter. Although statistically, still a rare occurrence, the overall rate of snowfall appears to be picking up drastically. Ain Safra is a small town on the edge of one of the largest and hottest deserts in the world, earning it the moniker of the “Gateway to the Desert.” It snowed 40 years ago, but the locals were able to pack away their snow shovels in storage since it did not snow again up until two years ago.In light of the 37-year hiatus from snow ending only two years ago, last month’s snowfall was a bit unanticipated.
Of course, a second snowfall in the same winter was even more unforeseen, yet locals woke up to see the desert sands coated again in approximately half a foot of snow.   Such rare weather patterns may very well be a sign of the Messianic era as the prophet Isaiah speaks repeatedly of deserts blooming in his description of the end of days. The arid desert shall be glad, The wilderness shall rejoice And shall blossom like a rose. Isaiah 35:1 I am about to do something new; Even now it shall come to pass, Suddenly you shall perceive it: I will make a road through the wilderness And rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19 The prophet also understands snow to be a fortuitous omen that signifies God’s forgiveness.

Millions of viruses rising into atmosphere, traveling thousands of miles, falling back to surface.

Millions of viruses rising into atmosphere, traveling thousands of miles, falling back to surface.
This study will make you think twice about stepping outside for a breath of fresh air. A team of scientists from around the world confirmed millions of viruses rising into the atmosphere, traveling — sometimes for thousands of miles — and falling back down to the surface. The study carried out by researchers from the U.S., Canada, and Spain, is the first of its kind to confirm viruses are being swept up into the free toposphere — the layer of atmosphere between the area where Earth’s weather systems develop — and below the stratosphere, where airplanes fly.
The numbers are “astonishing” the researchers say, but remember, a virus is a tiny particle, little more than a strand of DNA and a mechanism for attaching to organic matter. “Every day, more than 800 million viruses are deposited per square metre above the planetary boundary layer — that’s 25 viruses for each person in Canada,” says the University of British Columbia virologist Curtis Suttle, lead author of the study, in a media release.

Are There Spiritual Roots to Illness and Disease?
Feb 13, 2018 | 0  |     
Are There Spiritual Roots to Illness and Disease?
(By Mark Virkler) You sure wouldn’t think there are spiritual roots to illness when you look at the way Western medicine treats sickness. Their primary focus is to provide a drug to deal with the symptoms. 60 to 80 percent of primary care doctor visits are related to stress, yet only 3 percent of patients receive stress management help. According to Occupational Health and Safety news and the National Council on the compensation of insurance, up to 90 percent of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related complaints. There is an entire 50- page book, written by a Protestant minister, detailing the spiritual roots of diseases. It is A More Excellent Way to Be in Health by Henry W. Wright.
Could We Get More Healing if We Discerned the Spiritual Roots?
The possibility of spiritual roots to illness and disease is an interesting question, for if many diseases do have spiritual roots, and I am seeking healing, I sure want to ask the Lord what spiritual roots are nourishing this illness or disease, so I can repent of them and be delivered and set free. Jesus warned the lame man whom He healed, “See, you have become whole. Sin no more lest something worse happens to you” (John 5:14). So it seems clear that Jesus, to some level connected sin to infirmity. Acts 10:38 sums up Jesus’s ministry by connecting healing with oppression by the devil: “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”

Teacher Fired for Sharing Biblical Views; Loses Discrimination Lawsuit

Teacher Fired for Sharing Biblical Views; Loses Discrimination Lawsuit
An Employment Tribunal in the UK dismissed a discrimination lawsuit filed by a Christian teacher in Bristol. Svetlana Powell was fired from her job at the T2 Apprenticeship Academy when she answered a student’s question about her views on homosexuality in 2016. Powell reportedly stated homosexuality was “against God’s will” but that He loves everyone.
According to Christian Concern, a student knew about Powell’s Christian faith and started asking probing questions in an attempt to trap the teacher.  Other students joined the conversation which led to a question from a 17-year-old student about her views on homosexuality.  The students then accused Powell of “brainwashing.”  After an investigation, the school decided to let Powell go for “gross misconduct.” She filed a lawsuit for discrimination and loss of wages.

Scripture Signs Removed From High School Choir Room Following Complaint From Atheist Activist Group
Several displays featuring quotations from Scripture have been removed from a choir room at a public high school in Arkansas following a complaint from one of the nation’s most conspicuous professing atheist activist organizations. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter in November to the superintendent of the Searcy School District to assert that the signs, displayed by choir director Tina Niederbrach at Searcy High School, are violative of the U.S. Constitution.
According to reports, the signs included the verses, “Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:19); “Love binds us together in perfect harmony” (Colossians 3:14); and “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God” (Psalm 42:1).“The district violates the  Constitution when it allows schools to display religious symbols or messages. Public schools may not advance, prefer, or promote religion,” the FFRF claimed in its correspondence.

Next wave of Facebook crackdown begins! “Toxic Content” to removed!
Facebook executives have pledged to tackle fake news and online fraud after Unilever warned tech firms that it will pull lucrative advertising contracts if companies allow their platforms to “breed division”. Adam Mosseri, the social network’s head of news feed, told an audience in California that Unilever’s commitment to tackling issues such as online racism, sexism and terrorism is a “great thing”. “We think the commitment by such a large advertiser on these issues is great, it’s a great thing.
“It’s on us to make sure we deliver and meet whatever expectations that they have, but we commend the announcement,” Mr Mosseri said at the Code Media conference in Huntington Beach. His comments come after the consumer goods giant’s marketing chief Keith Weed raised serious concerns over the spread of illegal and extremist content online. He said on Monday: “We cannot continue to prop up a digital supply chain – one that delivers over a quarter of our advertising to our consumers – which at times is little better than a swamp in terms of its transparency.

Megachurch pastor under fire for $230K Bentley Bentayga
Leader of the 10,000-member Mount Ararat Baptist Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, William H. Curtis, has sparked a vigorous debate online after his $230,000 Bentley Bentayga, which costs nearly twice as much as the median home in the church’s Larimer neighborhood, was photographed outside the church. The photograph of the pastor’s Bentayga, which Bentley boasts is the fastest SUV in the world with a top speed of 187 mph, was posted to Facebook Monday by Jarrell Taylor who criticized the pastor’s opulent display.
“If ya pastor driving a Bentley truck … he’s sucking ur community dry with hope and tithes,” Taylor wrote. The Christian Post reached out to Curtis for comment about his choice of transportation Thursday and his assistant said she did not believe he would respond to questions about his car but promised to deliver our message to him. She also acknowledged that the church had been getting direct reactions to the vehicle as well but would not confirm the sources of the criticism.

Muslim Bans Christian Prison Chaplain Without Warning, Citing ‘Extreme’ Views
A highly-respected Christian volunteer chaplain at HMP Brixton has been removed from chaplaincy work, and an internationally-respected Christian course banned by a Muslim senior chaplain, in an attempt to wipe out “Christian domination” at Brixton prison. Pastor Paul Song moved to the U.K. from South Korea in 1992 and began working as a full-time minister at London Shepherd Church in 1996. In 1998, he started using his one day off each week to volunteer alongside 15 other Christians at HMP Brixton, and he was taken on as a chaplain at the prison on March 1, 1998.

Paul and others started running the internationally-respected Alpha course at HMP Brixton in 1998, and have been doing so for nearly 20 years. In recent times they also ran the “Just10” course created by Canon J. John—all with the blessing of the former senior chaplain, Reverend Phillip Chadder. The demand for the courses was considerable, with around 70 prisoners signing up for each course, and waiting lists having to be created. Over the 19 years, the volunteer chaplain developed strong relationships with the prisoners, the senior chaplain and other staff, and many prisoners became Christians and had their lives transformed.

Woman Disfigured in Church Bombing Had Miraculous Vision of Jesus!
When Samiha Tawfiq Awad and her husband Qalini went to church Sunday morning December 11, 2016, they didn’t expect to come face to face with death. The couple did what they did every Sunday – go to St. Peter’s church in Cairo, Egypt and worship the Lord according to the Coptic traditions of their ancestors. All of that suddenly changed when a terrorist ran into the church just before 10 a.m. and blew himself up.
Qalini called out to his wife in the panic and destruction but didn’t find her until hours after she was taken to the hospital. “She won’t survive,” the doctors told him. The bomb blast killed 25 people and severely disfigured Samiha’s face, yet she defied the doctors who expected her to die and miraculously survived. Samiha has since fully recovered and is back home with her husband. “The doctors might’ve given up on Samiha, but God had another plan!” Qalini later told Open Doors.

Ken Ham Event at Oklahoma University Canceled Due to LGBT Group Complaint
An event with Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham as the featured speaker has been dropped by the University of Central Oklahoma after an LGBT campus group complained about his beliefs. “So the name ‘Ken Ham’ seems to invoke fear in the hearts and minds of the increasingly intolerant LGBTQ movement,” Ham wrote on Facebook on Tuesday.
“Pressure from a professor leading the LGBTQ group at the University of Central Oklahoma has resulted in my invitation to give a presentation on campus being cancelled, even though the university signed a contract. So much for ‘toleration’ and ignoring the university’s promise for free inquiry and expression.” Paul Blair, pastor of Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma, who worked with a campus student group to arrange Ham’s speech at Constitution Hall, revealed that the university spends tax dollars on other events, such as drag queen shows and a “Safe Sex Carnival.”

Computer virus cripples city in Dallas for second day in a row!
For the second day, a computer virus has disrupted or slowed systems at the City of Dallas. Users looking to access online library searches, or pay tickets online were greeted with a frustrating message: technical difficulties. “There is not a safe that hasn’t been cracked,” says Keith Barthold, CEO of DKB Innovative with a wry laugh. Not exactly comforting words. But, the warning from the local cybersecurity expert is at least timely.
“There are a lot of bad guys out there trying to get data, disrupt and take down organizations,” says Barthold, often he says simply to “create chaos.” A city spokesperson tells CBS 11 no personal data has been compromised and that responses to 911 calls weren’t delayed. However, the police Computer Aided Dispatch system was disrupted for a time on Monday as city staffers worked on a fix. A spokesperson says the CAD system was back up and running by Monday evening. But, the problems for other departments continued into Tuesday. So what’s a city to do?

Actor Stephen Baldwin Says ‘You Can’t Be Pro-Choice and Call Yourself a Follower of Jesus Christ’
Actor Stephen Baldwin came to the Faithwire headquarters on Thursday, where he delivered a powerful and convicting pro-life message, arguing that the Bible is clear and unchanging and that the scriptures take a firmly pro-life stance. “The Bible’s very clear. The word never changes. … You can’t be pro-choice and call yourself a follower of Jesus Christ, doesn’t go together,” Baldwin said during a Facebook Live. “It’s a fact. It’s a simple common sense fact. So, anybody who hears me say that and goes, ‘Well, hey I’m
… this type of Christian or this denomination and in our church … it’s acceptable.’ I’m just going to say, ‘Well, whatever they’re teaching you according to God’s word that has allowed you to believe that is incorrect.’ It’s very simple.” And Baldwin, who also spoke about his new Russia Today show, titled, “The Great American Pilgrimage,” wasn’t done there, as he mentioned the recent failure of the U.S. Senate to pass a bill that would ban abortions at 20 weeks, arguing that there is “scientific evidence that shows an infant at 20 weeks feels pain.”

Mystery Woman Risks Life to Convert North Koreans Trapped in Labor Camps
A North Korean defector has recalled her harrowing experience of spending time in one of the communist nation’s notorious labor camps. Incredibly, despite her horrific ordeal, she ended up coming to Jesus during her period of incarceration. Esther, who has had her name changed for security reasons, told religious freedom charity Open Doors that she and the other inmates were “treated like animals” and that there were 40 of them crammed into a two-by-two cell. Despite the dire situation, Esther said
she was profoundly impacted by a Christian woman who somehow held onto her faith through the horrific treatment they endured. “At one point, I gave her a little push and asked her ‘Hey, what’s going on with you? Why are you so calm?’” Esther explained. “She answered ‘When I was in China, God treated me like a princess.’” “I looked at her. She was a fragile, old lady. Why would anyone treat her like a princess? I mocked her, ‘Okay, I want to be a princess too.’” “‘Alright,’ she said. ‘Just pray like me’. I played along. So she went ‘Thank you, God, for everything. Do what you wish. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.’” READ MORE http://www.faithwire.com/2018/02/06/just-pray-like-me-mystery-woman-risks-life-to-convert-north-koreans-trapped-in-labor-camps/

Is virtual reality porn the next greatest threat to the Church?
Ready or not, the new frontier of pornography is here. A reporter who was invited to experience virtual reality pornography with a Samsung Gear VR headset chronicled the lifelike details of a sexual encounter. He noted “after trying out VR porn, I don’t think anyone who experiences it will be able to go back to 2D porn. It’s that realistic.” The New York Times has even taken notice about the business of VR porn.
“While virtual-reality pornography may feel like something out of a science fiction movie, it already has a formidable, if underground, presence,” the newspaper reported. “According to one porn site, views of VR porn are up 275 percent since it debuted in the summer of 2016. Now the site is averaging about 500,000 views.” “Is the church ready for this? No, because they are not aware of it,” Josh McDowell of the Josh McDowell Ministry said in a press release.

12 dead, 80+ injured on snow- and ice-covered roads across Iowa and Missouri
At least 12 people have died on snow- and ice-covered roads across Iowa and Missouri on February 4 and 5, 2018 and more than 80 were injured, at least 7 critically. A major pileup involving as many as 70 vehicles took place on I-35 near Ames, Iowa, while officials in Missouri reported more than 650 road crashes in two days and a massive 100-vehicle pileup on I-44 near Springfield. Another winter storm is brewing over the lower Mississippi Valley today. Multiple collisions took place in Iowa on Monday, February 5, 2018 after a dangerous winter storm covered roads in snow and ice. Reports received early February 6 mention at least 7 deaths and 5 critically injured.
A major pileup involving as many as 70 vehicles took place on Interstate 35 near Ames Monday afternoon, temporarily closing the roadway. The pileup left at least one person dead and 5 critically injured. Officials said it was one of the worst pileups they’ve seen in the area. According to Local5, a man who was involved in the pileup said he was driving along I-35 north near exit 113 when he was smashed into by another car. “It was a chain reaction after that… As soon as I saw there weren’t any more cars, I watched about 20 to 30 cars start piling up.”

California Court Rules Christian Baker Cannot Be Forced to Make Cake for Same-Sex Wedding
Feb 6, 2018 | 1 |
California Court Rules Christian Baker Cannot Be Forced to Make Cake for Same-Sex Wedding
In a decision being celebrated as a win for religious freedom advocates, a California judge ruled late Monday that a Christian baker who faced losing her business because she refuses to bake cakes for same-sex weddings cannot be compelled by the state to do so. The decision comes as the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in December in another Christian baker case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, in an ongoing wrestling match between religious freedom advocates and LGBT activists who insist that Christian bakers should be compelled to bake cakes for all marriages, not just heterosexual unions.
In the California case, Christian baker Cathy Miller, who owns Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield, was facing discrimination charges filed by the state after she refused to make a wedding cake for Eileen and Mireya Rodriguez-Del Rio last August, citing her religious beliefs. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing petitioned the court to issue a restraining order against Miller and her bakery to force the company to make cakes for same-sex weddings or stop making wedding cakes altogether if she refused.

Students No Longer Reading Lord’s Prayer Over Loudspeaker at Louisiana School Following Lawsuit

Students No Longer Reading Lord’s Prayer Over Loudspeaker at Louisiana School Following Lawsuit
Students at a public high school in Louisiana are no longer reading The Lord’s Prayer over the loudspeaker each morning following a lawsuit filed by a woman who professes to be a Christian and her agnostic daughter. Christy Cole and her 17-year-old daughter Kaylee recently told CNN that no one has presented the prayer at Lakeside Junior/High School in Minde since students returned from the holiday break.
The Lord’s Prayer had customarily been read over the loudspeaker each morning during the daily announcements, along with the Pledge of Allegiance. Students had asked their classmates to stand to their feet, but Cole declined to as she identifies as agnostic and doesn’t like messages about God appearing in various forms throughout the school day. As previously reported, Cole’s mother professes to be a Christian, but still objects to Christianity being promoted in public schools and believes that “praying in public is a sin.”

East Coast residents shaken by Tsunami warning test
Did you get a tsunami warning for Palm Beach County this morning? Did you spit up your double latte? Not to worry. It was just a monthly test. But some Twitter followers didn’t get the “test” part. Including, apparently, AccuWeather, the weather forecasting company. It sent out individual alerts to localities, including Palm Beach County. “It was a test. It says ‘test’ in the headline. It says ‘test’ twice. It even says

it in Spanish,” said Robert Molleda, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service’s Miami office. Molleda said the transmission, by the Tsunami Warning Center in Alaska, was for the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. He said FEMA also mentioned it in its morning “roll call” of government partners. A closer look on the AccuWeather webpage shows that what most people got on their cellphones was a “push alert” that didn’t mention “test” until after a series of clicks.

Amtrak train breaks apart at 125 mph!
A high-speed Amtrak train bound for Penn Station broke apart as it was cruising through Maryland on Tuesday, sources told The Post. The 2150 Acela was traveling from Washington D.C. to the Big Apple when the incident happened at about 6:30 a.m. The train was traveling at about 125 mph, according to the source.
“Someone could have been walking through the train when that happened and fell to their death,” said the source. A photo shows the connector between two coupled trains broken and separated. Amtrak officials confirmed the incident, but didn’t immediately have details. The incident happened just two days after an Amtrak train traveling through South Carolina slammed into the back of a freight train, killing two workers.

Powerful 6.4 magnitude earthquake strikes Taiwan, Buildings collapsed and Injuries reported
A hotel on the east coast of Taiwan has collapsed after a 6.4-magnitude earthquake, the government said. Citing the national fire agency, Taiwan’s cabinet said another hotel had also been damaged. Local media reported a number of buildings had toppled with around 30 people trapped in the collapsed hotel. The earthquake was the latest in a string that have hit the region in recent days. The quake hit at 23:50 pm
(3.50pm GMT) around 21 kilometers (13 miles) northeast of the port city Hualien, according to the United States Geological Survey. The government confirmed that the hotel had collapsed, but few further details were immediately available. Emergency services are working to free anyone trapped inside the building, media reports said. The island’s weather bureau recorded the quake as 6.0-magnitude. On Sunday, another five shallow tremors struck within two hours of each other in the same area off Taiwan’s east coast.

DEVELOPING: Virus Outbreak At Olympics; Military Deployed
The organizing committee for the Pyeongchang Olympics has called in 900 military personnel after more than 1,200 private security workers were pulled off duty because of concerns about the spread of the Norovirus, Christophe Dubi, IOC executive director of the Olympic Games said Tuesday. In a statement, POCOG said that starting Sunday workers reported headaches, stomach pain and diarrhea. The Gangwon Province Health and Environment Research Center found 41 workers with symptoms that might be related to the virus. The others have been pulled from duty to prevent possible spreading of the illness.
The workers are largely responsible for checking credentials and screening baggage entering the venues. The military personnel were brought in from about 40 minutes away. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Norovirus is considered highly contagious and typically includes symptoms of diarrhea, stomach pain, vomiting and nausea. The organizing committee said groundwater used in food and beverages at the Horeb Youth Centre — a housing facility — are suspected, and the cause is being investigated.

10-year-old says he saw angel or God in his hospital room
A 10-year-old Gulf Coast boy lost 100 percent of his skin after a one-in-a-million reaction to a common antibiotic. During his four-month stay at Shriner’s Hospital in Galveston, Texas, one day, changed the way he viewed his entire experience. Thelonious Ziegelschmid-Sylvester’s parents rushed him to the hospital and within hours they learned he had an extreme case of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome called Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis. His experience with an angel, Jesus or God is different because of the clarity he had and the way the experience seemed to signify the end of his hardest days.
“After a while, I saw this man standing in the corner of the room in a white robe with a beard,” Thelonious said. “White skin, brown beard, brown hair. He smiled at me and it was like I was back in my body. I thought it was really strange but after that, it was just… kept getting better and better after that point.” After asking if Thelonious believed he was visited by an angel or God, he answered, “That’s what I believe.” In his darkest day, he saw a light. Something appeared in his room, seemingly sent from heaven.

Fake doctor infects 21 with HIV with tainted syringes…
A fake doctor treating poor villagers in northern India for colds, coughs and diarrhea has infected at least 21 of them with HIV by using contaminated syringes and needles, a health official said Tuesday. Sushil Choudhury, the official, said police were looking for Rajendra Yadav, who fled Bangarmau, a small town in Uttar Pradesh state, after the HIV infections were detected in December last year. The villagers said they rarely saw Yadav changing the needles. Choudhury said that probably led to the spread of HIV.
With India’s healthcare system facing a massive shortage of doctors and hospitals, millions of poor people seek fake doctors for cheap treatment. India had 2.1 million people living with HIV at the end of 2016, according to a UNAIDS report. Of those, 9,100 were children under age 15. India has registered a 20 percent annual decline in new infections over the past few years, according to the report.

New documentary centered on Rob Bell to raise many eyebrows!
Rob Bell has sparked no shortage of controversy with views and proclamations that some believe are anti-Christian in nature. And now fans and critics, alike, will have the chance to hear more from Bell, as he’s the focus of a new documentary titled, “The Heretic.” The film releases on March 1 on Amazon and on iTunes, as RELEVANT noted. The trailer for “The Heretic” quotes Bell saying a variety of things that are sure to attract attention. Here are just two bits:
'The Heretic' - Official Trailer - Rob Bell Documentary
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=fQ3HYWFhoKg
“When I kept going into the Jesus teachings, it took me beyond a religion to what does it mean to be human. And I actually think Jesus would be absolutely mortified that somebody started a religion in his name.” “The Bible has caused so much damage…” Bell took to his Facebook page on Thursday to note that he was approached a few years back by a filmmaker named Andrew Morgan. Morgan wanted to make a documentary about Bell’s work and Bell obliged. “We have great respect for Andrew so we said yes and he began filming tours and RobCasts and events and interviews — I can’t imagine just how much footage he captured,” Bell said. “The result is a new film that he is preparing to release. It’s called The Heretic.”

Banks Shutter 1,700 Branches in Fastest Decline on Record…
Banks are closing branches at the fastest pace in decades, as they leave less profitable regions and fewer customers use tellers for routine transactions. The number of branches in the U.S. shrank by more than 1,700 in the 12 months ended in June 2017, the biggest decline on record, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of federal data.Branch numbers fell again in the second half of 2017, according to related data submitted to bank regulators and reviewed by the Journal.
That would add to the thousands of locations closed following the financial crisis, and is the longest stretch of closures since the Great Depression. Many of the closings were in big cities and surrounding suburbs, where branches were consolidated largely because of falling foot traffic. Others were in rural areas, where some large regional lenders are leaving town altogether.

Pool Found at Ancient Christian Site May Be Where Ethiopian Eunuch Was Baptized in Book of Acts
Archaeologists in Israel have made another discovery connected to stories in the Bible, as they found a large 1,500-year-old pool at an ancient Christian site near Jerusalem where the Ethiopian eunuch, as mentioned in the Book of Acts, might have been baptized. The pool the archaeologists have unearthed is one among several that were built during the Byzantine era dating back to between the 4th and 6th centuries A.D. at Ein Hanniya Park between 2012 and 2016, according to World Israel News. “The most significant finding in the excavation is a large and impressive pool from the Byzantine period,” Irina
Zilberbod, the excavation director for the Israel Antiquities Authority, was quoted as saying. “This pool was built in the center of a spacious complex at the foot of a church that once stood here. Roofed colonnades were built around the pool that gave access to residential wings.” “We believe that some early Christian commentators identified Ein Hanniya as the site where the Ethiopian eunuch was baptized, as described in Acts 8:26–40,” Jerusalem District Archaeologist Dr. Yuval Baruch was quoted as saying. “The baptism of the eunuch by St. Philip was one of the key events in the spread of Christianity.

Episcopal Diocese Votes to Avoid Using ‘Gendered Pronouns’ for God in Book of Common Prayer
The Episcopal Diocese of Washington, D.C. voted on Saturday to stop using “gendered pronouns” for God in future revisions of its Book of Common Prayer and to “remove all obstacles” for “transgender” participation in church life by making all gender-specific facilities and activities accessible to those who identify as the opposite sex. “Resolved … that the 79th General Convention direct the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music,
if revision of the Book of Common Prayer is authorized, to utilize expansive language for God from the rich sources of feminine, masculine, and non-binary imagery for God found in Scripture and tradition and, when possible, to avoid the use of gendered pronouns for God,” the resolution read. It was passed by a show of hands during the 123rd Convention of the Washington Diocese with only a few opposed, according to Strategic Communications Director Richard Wosson Weinberg.

Atheist Activist Group Complains to School District After Teacher ‘Casts Doubt Upon Evolution’
One of the nation’s most conspicuous professing atheist organizations recently sent a letter to a Missouri school district to lodge a complaint about a science teacher who reportedly had been teaching students from a biblical Creation worldview instead of an evolutionary worldview. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) submitted the complaint to the Hickman Mills C-1 School District after being informed that a seventh-grade science teacher at Smith-Hale Middle School had been teaching a young earth and other beliefs adhered to by Christians.
“We understand that one of his unit tests included questions to cast doubt upon evolution and our current understanding of the age of the earth,” the group wrote. Among the reported questions, which students were to characterize as true or false, were the statements “Transitional forms have been found in the fossil record for all animals” (false), “Catastrophe supports sudden species appearance and a younger earth” (true), and “There is no evidence that dinosaurs and humans may have coexisted” (false).

There has been three fatal AMTRAK crashes in 49 days…
Horrible news from South Carolina this morning. If America is going to have a passenger rail system, we have to do much better than this. Via The State: A crash involving an Amtrak passenger train and a freight train in Cayce, South Carolina, left at least two people dead and more than 50 injured. Pine Ridge train incident update: @CountyLex confirms two fatalities, more than 50 injured transported to the hospital. Shelter for passengers open at Pine Ridge Middle School. Media update @SCEMD at 6:30 a.m. #alert
It would appear that something is seriously wrong with the way passenger rail is operating in the United States under the federal corporation AMTRAK. This crash is the third fatal AMTRAK crash since the AMTRAK Cascades train derailed in Washington State at the cost of 3 lives and 62 passenger injuries only 49 days ago. Last Wednesday’s crash in Virginia of a train carrying Congressional Republicans to a retreat killed one. And now, the South Carolina crash has killed at least two. Each of these three accidents had a separate, probably preventable cause, though of course official verdicts await formal proceedings.

Another Child In Indiana Dies Of Flu, 100 Deaths in KY, 136 in Indiana
Bartholomew County first grader Savanna Jessie died suddenly this week after testing positive for the flu. When Courtney Hargett held her niece for the last time, she had no idea goodbye would come so suddenly. “We got news that she had been sick, and (her father) had taken her to the hospital,” she said. Savannah lived with her father in Columbus. Hargett said, “After they left the hospital, he took her home, put her in bed, and then found her in the morning.”
Savanna was unresponsive. Medics rushed her to Columbus Regional Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Savanna had been treated after testing positive for flu, strep and scarlet fever. “Savana came into this world seven weeks early. She was a fighter. She was strong,” Hargett said. Tracy Kaiser has a daughter at Lincoln Elementary, the same school Savanna attended. “My daughter knew her as a happy child and somebody that the kids look forward to spending time together with,” she said.

2 killed, 70 hurt when Amtrak, CSX trains collide in South Carolina
At least two people were killed and 70 were injured when an Amtrak passenger train collided with a CSX freight train early Sunday just outside the capital of South Carolina, officials said. The South Carolina Emergency Management Division said Amtrak 91 was traveling from New York to Miami when it collided with the CSX train in Cayce around 2:35 a.m. At least 70 people were transported to local hospitals, Lexington County spokesman Harrison Cahill said at a news conference.
“We have anywhere from scratches and bumps to more severe broken bones,” Cahill told reporters. Amtrak said in a statement the train’s lead engine derailed, as did some passenger cars that was carrying eight crew members and approximately 139 passengers on board. TV footage from the crash scene showed the aftermath of the collision, with the Amtrak engine on its side and its front crumpled.

Hundreds of starlings mysteriously drop dead from the sky above Rome
The flocks of starlings that create choreographed patterns in the skies over Rome have mysteriously lost their aplomb, with hundreds falling to their deaths after colliding with each other. The birds began plummeting from the sky last weekend, leaving a litter of tiny corpses across roads and pavements. At Porta Pia, one of the gates of Rome, and in other neighborhoods, residents had to tiptoe around fallen birds’ bodies, while mopeds risked skidding on corpses crushed by passing cars. “It was like a Hitchcock
film — there was a lot of blood and the smell became horrible,” Paolo Peroso, head of the Porta Pia residents’ association, said. Millions of starlings migrate south during the winter to Rome, where they enjoy the warmth and the street lights that allow them to keep an eye out for predatory falcons. During the day they venture out of the city, feasting on olives before roosting in Rome’s plane trees and dumping tonnes of oily excrement on the streets, forcing locals to carry umbrellas.

Computers will find EVERYTHING you’ve EVER done online & there’s ZERO you can do to stop it
The next generation of computers is striking fear into security agencies across the world as nations prepare for the biggest dump of information that the world has ever seen. This is not another whistleblower but the development of Quantum computing. The race is already underway on two fronts, the development of these super-computers on one hand and the development of algorithms to stop these machines on the other. Quantum computers will be able to read everything that has ever and will ever be sent, stored on or connected to the internet, regardless of whether it is encrypted or not.
Everything sent securely over the internet, from emails and bank transactions to nations state secrets will suddenly become readable. Quantum computers are more than just a fast version of what we use today – classical computers. The machines we use now work on a basic unit of information denoted as a ‘1’ or a ‘0’. A Quantum computer uses a qubit – quantum bit – that allows it to solve complex problems much faster as it can hold a combination of ‘1’ and ‘0’ simultaneously.

Satan’s Favorite Christians Are The Ones Who Deny That He Exists

Satan’s Favorite Christians Are The Ones Who Deny That He Exists
(By Matt Walsh) There is no better evidence of Satan’s existence than the fact that so many Christians in this country deny it. We are a culture where even those who believe in the saving power of Christ do not necessarily believe that we actually need to be saved from anything. This is the Devil’s handiwork. By pretending he isn’t real, we show his fruits. Surveys show that 30% of American Christians reject the idea of Hell. For Catholics, the number is almost 40%. It’s a smaller figure — 25% —
for Protestants, but that’s deceptive because 40% of Protestants say they don’t believe in demonic possession. They may affirm “Hell” as some kind of abstract concept, but they clearly don’t accept that evil spirits are actively at work in our world. This is not just a problem among average Christians. Plenty of pastors and church leaders have fostered this heresy either by refusing to ever acknowledge Hell or Satan in their preaching, or by outright denying them. Here’s one article from an apostate pastor named Timothy Tutt who labels the Devil “make believe.” Incredibly, in his defense of this position,

In New York, all 51,000 state prisoners will get their own tablet computers
Inmates in New York state prisons will soon be able to read e-books, listen to music and email family members while in prison — all from their own tablet computers. The New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision entered into a deal with JPay that will provide all New York state prison inmates with a tablet. JPay is a company that provides technology and services that help
those who are incarcerated stay connected with people outside prison, according to the company’s website. There are approximately 51,000 inmates in New York state prisons, the corrections department said. Anthony J. Annucci, the department’s acting commissioner, called the development a “groundbreaking move.” “As we continue to use technology to make our prisons safer, we will also leverage it to improve operations and interactions with family and friends by expanding services to our population,” Annucci said Tuesday during a state legislative budget hearing.

Nick Vujicic Warns The Prosperity Gospel Has Disabled 2 Continents, Africa and Latin America
Evangelist Nick Vujicic warned that the prosperity gospel has “disabled” two entire continents, namely Africa and Latin America, in a recent message urging people to go back to the basics of the Gospel. Vujicic, known as the limbless evangelist because he was born without arms and without legs, answered several questions on the importance of evangelism when interviewed by Hannah Schuller, the wife of pastor Bobby Schuller, at Shepherd’s Grove church in California. The preacher argued in a video posted
to Facebook on Sunday that evangelists need to go back to focusing on the “original Gospel,” without “adding or subtracting” from it. “The prosperity gospel has disabled two continents as we speak — Africa and Latin America,” Vujicic warned. “It is time that we go back to the basics.” A number of nations in South America, especially Brazil, which is experiencing a growing evangelical movement, have also seen a rise in prosperity gospel preaching, with charismatic leaders offering hope to people with economic troubles.

RATS DEVELOP RARE CANCER FROM CELL PHONE EXPOSURE…WHAT’S IT DOING TO US?

Rats Develop Rare Cancer From Cell Phone Exposure…What’s it doing to Us?
High exposure to radiofrequency radiation — the radiation known as RFR and emitted from your cell phone — causes a rare cancer in male rats, according to draft conclusions released by the National Institutes of Health on Friday. The two technical reports, one on mice and the other on rats, released by the NIH’s National Toxicology Program (NTP) show the exposure to the high levels of radiation resulted in tumors in the tissues surrounding nerves in the heart of male rats. Both male and female rats that
were exposed to high levels of RFR showed increased patterns of damage to their heart tissue, according to the researchers. “The levels and duration of exposure to RFR were much greater than what people experience with even the highest level of cell phone use, and exposed the rodents’ whole bodies. So, these findings should not be directly extrapolated to human cell phone usage,” said NTP senior scientist Dr. John Bucher in a written statement. “We note, however, that the tumors we saw in these studies are similar to tumors previously reported in some studies of frequent cell phone users.”

RUSSIAN BANKS RAMPING UP GOLD PURCHASES AT RECORD PACE

Russian banks ramping up gold purchases at record pace
The Russian government has purchased two-thirds of all the gold mined in country, buying it from local banks to add to reserves as the Kremlin sees the precious metal as a safe haven at a time of geopolitical turbulence. “For banks, this is good business. They credit mining companies, which return the loan with the gold they extracted. Then banks sell it to the Central Bank,” according to the Russian Finance Ministry, quoted by Prime news agency.
Russia is the largest gold buyer in the world, and purchases by Russian banks have increased substantially in recent years. Last year, Russian banks bought 205,155 tons of gold, which is 4.7 percent more than in 2016 (195.89 tons), and approximately 67 percent of all gold produced in Russia. This is also a 13 percent increase compared to 2013. The biggest buyers are VTB24, Sberbank and Gazprombank. All three banks have registered at the Shanghai precious metals exchange. In April, VTB announced plans to sell up to 100 tons of gold to China annually.

Russia ‘developing’ undersea nuclear-armed torpedo…
Just as the White House is caught in a political minefield over the Russia investigation, the Pentagon is taking its toughest line yet against Russia’s resurgent nuclear forces. In its newly released Nuclear Posture Review, the Defense Department has focused much of its multi-billion nuclear effort on an updated nuclear deterrence focused on Russia. “Russia considers the United States and the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to be the principal threats to its contemporary geopolitical ambitions,” the report says. “The Defense Intelligence Agency currently estimates Russia has a stockpile of 2,000 “non-strategic” nuclear weapons including short-range ballistic missiles, gravity bombs and depth charges that can go on medium range bomber aircraft,” according to the report.
“DIA also estimates Russia has nuclear-armed anti-ship, anti-submarine missiles and torpedoes. What do they need nuclear depth charges for?” one US official asked

16 More children dead from flu…
Sixteen flu-related deaths were reported Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in its weekly flu report. This brings the total number of pediatric flu-related deaths to 53 for the season, which began in October. According to the report, influenza activity is now widespread in 48 states and Puerto Rico, down from 49 states in the previous two weeks. Oregon joined Hawaii in lower activity
levels for the week ending January 27. “Our latest tracking data indicate that flu activity is still high and widespread across most of the nation and increasing overall,” said Dr. Anne Schuchat, the acting CDC director. “So far this year, the cumulative rate of hospitalizations is the highest since we’ve been tracking in this way, which goes back to 2010.

LAVA SPREADS MORE THAN 2 MILES FROM PHILIPPINE VOLCANO AS ERUPTIONS BECOME MORE INTENSE

Lava spreads more than 2 miles from Philippine volcano as eruptions become more intense
Lava flowing out a Philippine volcano has spread up to 3.6 kilometers (2.2 miles) since it began intense eruptions more than two weeks ago. Streaks of red glowed atop the summit of Mount Mayon during a mild eruption Thursday morning as the moon set, hours after a blue moon and supermoon coincided with a lunar eclipse. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said lava fountains and emissions of gas and ash have been sporadic.
The eruptions fed lava flows in two areas that already exceed 3 kilometers (1.8 miles). The danger zone around Mayon extends 8 kilometers (5 miles), though authorities have struggled to keep villagers from returning to check on their homes and farms and tourists from trying to photograph the volcano’s dramatic displays. Mayon in northeastern Albay province has been erupting for more than two weeks, forcing more than 84,000 villagers to flee to crowded emergency shelters. Scientists fear a more violent eruption could be imminent.

Franklin Graham Warns That Trump Could Face “Government Coup”
Franklin Graham, one of the nation’s most prominent Christian leaders, said Wednesday on the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” that the Trump presidency faces a grave domestic threat. “I believe we are in a coup d’etat,” Graham told Starnes. “There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force.”
Graham, the president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse, warned that there are forces at work who want to “wrestle control of the government” away from Trump. “They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media—to plant thoughts in people’s minds that he’s incompetent, that he’s dangerous, that you can’t trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable,” Graham said. Graham called on the nation to pray for the president and the vice president.

Should Christians Avoid Yoga?

Should Christians Avoid Yoga?
(By Dan Andros) A new debate hit the internet today and it put yoga squarely in the crosshairs. It all started with this tweet observation from writer Matt Walsh: “It’s kind of amazing to see all of the Christians who think nothing of going to a yoga class. There are many excellent ways to get in shape that do not involve participating in Hindu worship.” – Matt Walsh via Twitter
And with that, the yoga Twitter war began. Walsh took issue by linking yoga to Hindu worship, which appears to be a fair assertion. The debate, however, is hardly anything new. The issue was raised by the BBC a few years ago, interestingly by a muslim woman, not by a Christian. They also included concerns about practicing it from a number of other religions:
“When I told my family and a few friends, they did not react positively,” she recalls. “They were very confused as to why I wanted to do it – that it might be going against Islam.” Their suspicions about yoga are shared by many Muslims, Christians and Jews around the world and relate to yoga’s history as an ancient spiritual practice with connections to Hinduism and Buddhism. If I was to kneel down does that mean I’m praying – or am I just kneeling?

Emergency Rooms Expand Into Waiting Rooms as Flu Worsens
Nurses Kristy Haynes, left, and Crysta Swift on Monday look over supplies inside a temporary mobile unit set up outside Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta to help handle the ever-growing number of flu cases. Photo: David Goldman/Associated Press Emergency departments across the U.S. have been slammed in recent weeks by an onslaught of flu visits, forcing hospitals to devise new spaces to house patients, to restrict visitors and to postpone elective surgeries.

Visits to hospital emergency departments, urgent care centers and other outpatient clinics by people with flu symptoms have been skyrocketing for several weeks. As of mid-January, such visits had surpassed every flu season except 2009-10, when a new flu strain caused a global pandemic. The dominant strain this season, H3N2, is particularly virulent, and the vaccine isn’t very effective against it. NYC Health & Hospitals has seen a 40% increase in the number of people being tested for the flu compared with this time last year, according to Sean Studer, deputy chief medical officer of the group, which runs New York City’s public hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities.

Former insider claims ‘US Government has ‘crystal clear pics of UFOs chased by military’
The US Government is keeping “crystal-clear” images of “real UFOs” chased by military pilots from public view it was sensationally claimed today. Nick Pope, a former investigator of the UFO phenomenon for the British MoD, was reacting to claims made by experts that recent “UFO” footage released by the US Government was probably just a plane. Yesterday, Express.co.uk revealed that in a radio podcast of the Big Picture Science Skeptic Check, produced at the Search for Extraterrestrial
Intelligence (SETI) Institute, a panel of experts looked at the shocking radar video footage and the consensus was the object shown was just infrared heat from plane engines misidentified by US Navy pilots. The US-based SETI Institute is a collective of scientists looking for evidence of alien life in the cosmos. However, Mr Pope argued the footage should not be dismissed by SETI so readily. He said: “I saw the SETI Institute’s sceptical comments about the Pentagon UFO videos and thought I’d chip in, as I think they’ve misunderstood or failed to take account of something fairly important about this.

PROPHECY WATCH: Is Turkey Moving Closer to the Gog and Magog Alliance?

PROPHECY WATCH: Is Turkey Moving Closer to the Gog and Magog Alliance?
(By Tzippe Barrow)There’s been plenty written about the fulfillment of end-time prophecies in the days in which we’re living. The changes that have taken place in Turkey over the past decade and a half could possibly indicate the latest piece of the puzzle falling into place. Before President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ascent to power, Turkey and Israel enjoyed a close working relationship, from tourism to trade to the military and beyond. That began to change when Erdogan was elected prime minister in 2003. Over time, he
became increasingly open about his plan to reshape Turkey into an Islamic state. He wasn’t subtle and indeed was quick to oppress and/or arrest anyone who opposed him. One incident followed another. CBN News reported on many of them. While trying to keep an open door with NATO and possible membership in the EU, Erdogan gravitated toward Islamic leaders in Iran, Lebanon, Syria and elsewhere. He extended invitations to senior officials of known terror groups like Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. He criticized Israel at every opportunity and praised Islamic endeavors.

8 Steps the Church Should Take to Prepare Communities for Social Collapse

8 Steps the Church Should Take to Prepare Communities for Social Collapse
(By Joseph Mattera) For the past several years, a growing number of prophetically and culturally astute leaders are predicting the decline of the USA. Also, books like the New York Times best-seller The Harbinger have issued dire warnings to America based on biblical principles and Old Testament prophetic passages. There have been predictions as dark as the total breakup of our union preceded by mass rioting and chaos (catalyzed by runs on banks and economic calamities), to a severe economic crisis far worse than what happened globally in 2008.
All in all, most of those to whom I speak portend a major financial correction is soon coming in the market. Since the 2012 presidential election, there have been many ominous signs of huge American decline in global influence: China and Russia have been saber-rattling and spewing out military threats; the NSA spy scandal has alienated our allies and further validated our ideological enemies; the military is experiencing mass cutbacks in spending; Iran is continuing to move forward with their nuclear program with impunity; and the federal government continues to pump billions of printed dollars into the economy to superficially keep the nation afloat.

Nearly One Million People Surrender to Christ During Reinhard Bonnke’s Farewell Crusade
Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke’s ministry, Christ for All Nations (CfaN), says 845,875 Nigerians accepted Jesus Christ during his final farewell crusade held late last year in Nigeria. “These new converts are being ushered into the 8,000 participating churches, to be followed up and discipled into the kingdom of God,” the ministry website claimed. The 78-year-old Bonnke shared his farewell messages in Lagos in November 2017, drawing 1.7 million people to evangelistic meetings held over five days. “We utilize a
sophisticated follow-up system, with hundreds of computers for data input and tens of thousands of cell phone calls each day welcoming the new converts into the kingdom of God, introducing them to the particular church that they will attend and to the pastor as well,” said Peter Vandenberg, vice president of CfaN. According to Christ for All Nations, the effects of the crusade are still reverberating across the country months later. “Hundreds of participating pastors reported that on the first Sunday following the crusade, they were flooded with thousands of new church members,” Vandenberg said on CfaN’s website.

Trump gave big warning to North Korea in State of Union
A leading expert on the North Korean nuclear threat says President Trump’s condemnation of the communist regime through powerful stories also served as an American declaration that it’s time for a regime change in Pyongyang, but he warned that military action would be a big mistake. During Tuesday evening’s State of the Union address, Trump focused his final foreign-policy item at the nuclear threat posed by North Korea and punctuated it by telling two gripping stories.

First, he recounted the story of American college student Otto Warmbier, who was sentenced to 15 years hard labor for stealing a political poster and was returned to the U.S. in a coma last year. Warmbier died days later. His grieving parents were in the gallery for the speech. Next, Trump detailed the harrowing account of North Korean defector Ji Seong-ho, who was also present for the speech.

Bill Salus Talks About The “Two Judgments of End Times Babylon”

Bill Salus Talks About The “Two Judgments of End Times Babylon”
(By Bill Salus) This article is based on the DVD entitled, “The Identity of Mystery Babylon: Mecca or Rome?” The DVD was produced from a historic debate between New York Times bestselling author Joel Richardson and myself. Richardson believes that Mecca will be the great harlot city of Revelation 17, and I defended the popular and historic view that the city is Rome. There are two end times judgments of Babylon in the book of Revelation. Revelation 17:16 makes an end of the Harlot’s world religion and Revelation 18:8-10 terminates the global economy. In Richardson’s end-time scenario, these two judgments are one and the same.
If they are not, then, in theory, his hypothesis about Mecca has significant problems, which will be uncovered at the end of this article. However, first, this article will explain how these appear to be two distinctly different judgments. Many people read and interpret the book of Revelation in strict chronological order. They believe that the events of Rev. 13 occur prior to Rev. 17. Others believe that Rev. 17 and 18 describe the same judgment events against Babylon. However, the actual order of events makes most sense when these chapters are rearranged as Rev. 17, then Rev. 13, then Rev. 18. This sequencing illustrates that Rev. 17 and Rev. 18 are describing two different events with Rev. 13 inserted in-between.

‘Hezbollah is growing stronger – but Israel is prepared’
IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot spoke today at the Har Vagai School near Kibbutz Dafna at a ceremony marking 21 years since the tragic “helicopters disaster” in which 73 IDF soldiers were killed. The tragedy occurred when two IAF helicopters collided in northern Israel while transporting soldiers into southern Lebanon. “The 73 warriors served together and took off together for a joint mission, and were killed together,” Eizenkot said.
“They were a mosaic of our homeland, children of the city and the village and the kibbutz, secular and religious, Bedouin, Druze, and Jewish. All of them together, all lovers of the country who acted with a sense of responsibility and shared a commitment to ensure the security of the State of Israel.” The Chief of Staff spoke of threats to Israel on its northern border and said that “many challenges lurk, concealed by the silence. The Hezbollah terrorist organization violates UN Security Council resolutions, maintains a military presence in the region, maintains weapons systems, and strengthens its military capabilities.”

Russia builds four new air bases in Syria, deploys another 6,000 troops
Contrary to Moscow’s promises, the Russian military is not pulling out of Syria, but adding four more air bases (one shared with Iran) and 6,000 more troops. On Dec. 11, 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin, followed by Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, announced that the Russian military was to withdraw from Syria to home bases.
DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that the reverse happened. A small number of units were indeed sent home, but they were sooner replaced, and instead of two bases – the air facility at Hmeimim and the naval installation at Tartus – four more Syrian air bases are being reconstructed and adapted for the use of the Russian air force. The attached map illustrates their locations:

United Methodist Church Membership Declining In America
The United Methodist Church is growing globally while declining in the United States, passing the 12.5 million-member mark, according to recently released statistics. Drawing from annual conference journals sent to the UMC General Council on Finance and Administration mostly from 2016, the UMC saw its numbers grow compared to five years earlier. The statistics were used to determine the number of delegates each annual conference will send to the 2020 UMC General Conference.
Delegates for the denomination’s 2020 legislative gathering will represent a diverse national background, according to the United Methodist News Service. “The 2020 General Conference in Minneapolis will have 862 delegates — half clergy and half lay. Of those delegates, 55.9 percent will be from the U.S., 32 percent from Africa, 6 percent from the Philippines, 4.6 percent from Europe and the remainder from Concordat churches,” reported UMNS.

Kenneth Copeland Ministries Workers Could Be Fired for ‘Blatant Lying’ on or Off the Job
The Texas-based Kenneth Copeland Ministries, which recently acquired a multimillion dollar Gulfstream V jet to support the work of leader Kenneth Copeland, is now requiring their estimated 500 employees to sign a controversial code of conduct meant to keep the ministry pure sexually and financially. The new standards, which prohibit behaviors such as drinking, blatant lying, fornication and adultery on or off the job, can result in dismissal for employees who fail to live by the honor code, according to the Star-Telegram.
Employees who choose not to adhere to the new policies must leave the ministry no later than March 12, the new standard states. “I recognize that God’s grace and the ministry do not require perfection in any person. However, as a ministry team member, I acknowledge that my personal conduct and lifestyle are important to and do reflect upon the reputation of the ministry — regardless of whether I am on my job or away from work,” the code of conduct agreement states in part.

Scientists reinforce warnings of coming “Mega-Quake” as California continues to reel from earthquakes
A huge California earthquake is an “inevitability” as scientists reinforce their warnings that the southwestern State in the US is long overdue a massive tremor that could leave the region devastated. California sits on top of the North American and Pacific tectonic plates and the San Andreas fault runs through it. For decades, residents of the southwestern state have been concerned a huge earthquake, known as the Big One, is on its way. California is constantly being hit by quakes including two 2.6
tremors which have hit in the last 24 hours. Now, scientists are claiming that the situation could be much worse than previously thought. Richard Aster, Professor of Geophysics at Colorado State University wrote for the Conversation: “The earthquake situation in California is actually drier than people who aren’t seismologists like me may realize. “Although many Californians can recount experiencing an earthquake, most have never personally experienced a strong one.

Post-Apocalyptic Drama Portrays the Reality for Christians in the End Times
The popular streaming series that asks viewers to imagine how they would survive with their faith and freedoms intact in the wake of an unprecedented natural disaster swept the top honors for web series at last month’s Christian Film Festival. Daily Bread won Best Web Series honors and 25 additional awards at the festival, held in Newport News, Virginia. The series depicts how people from all walks of life, with all levels of faith in God and government, must search for something to hold onto when they lose their grip on everything they’ve known.
The series, produced by Renaissance Women Productions, released half of its first season last fall on popular streaming services like Roku and Amazon, as well as the series website. The remaining episodes of season one will be released next month. “We’re honored Daily Bread has been recognized for its entertainment value and quality,” creator and executive producer Nina May said.

Some Experts Warn Of Earth’s Magnetic Poles Flipping
The Earth’s magnetic poles could be about to flip, sparking chaos and making large parts of the planet uninhabitable, it has emerged. Experts have warned that the change is extremely likely with the magnetic field weakening by 15 percent over 200 years. According to an Undark report, the flip could cause “devastating streams of particles from the sun, galactic cosmic rays, and enhanced ultraviolet B rays from a radiation”. The report warned that satellite timing systems that govern electric grids could fail,
causing a ripple effect that would shut off lights, computers and phones. Even flushing the toilet could become impossible, according to the article. The article shared concerns from Daniel Baker, director of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, who warned “that parts of the planet will become uninhabitable during a reversal”. But a global apocalypse isn’t guaranteed, as NASA explains: “Many doomsday theorists have tried to take this natural geological occurrence and suggest it could lead to Earth’s destruction.”

Two students shot at California Middle School, One in critical condition
Two students were shot in a classroom in Salvador Castro Middle School in Westlake on Thursday morning and one is in critical condition, authorities said. Police received a report of shots fired about 8:55 a.m.at the school in the 1500 block of West 2nd Street, according to LAPD Officer Drake Madison. The victims are a 15-year-old male, who is in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head, and a 15-year-old female, who was shot in the wrist and is listed in fair condition.
Three other individuals also suffered minor injuries, according to Capt. Erik Scott with the Los Angeles Fire Department — a 30-year-old woman, an 11-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl. Scott described their injuries as minor abrasions, some from glass. “We did notify the mayor’s crisis response team to provide comfort to the family members affected,” Scott said. A girl believed to be the shooter was detained, said LAPD Officer Meghan Aguilar. A firearm has been recovered, she said.

New Bill Would Allow Public High School Coaches to Pray With Students in Georgia
A lawmaker in Georgia has introduced legislation that would effectively allow high school football coaches and other public school officials in the state who want to participate in a student-led and initiated prayer to do so. After headlines were made last year when East Coweta High School football coach John Small was told by the school district that he could not engage in prayer with his team before games, State Sen. Michael Williams introduced Senate Bill 361 on Tuesday in an attempt to give Small and other coaches such a right.
The bill, titled the “Coach Small Religious Protection Act,” would take effect in the 2018-2019 school year and would amend state law relating to elementary and secondary education to provide “freedom of religious expression by faculty and employees of public schools while fulfilling the duties of their jobs.” “While performing their assigned job duties, school employees are required to maintain a position of neutrality toward religion; however, when interacting with other school employees or when the context makes clear that the employee is not speaking on behalf of the school, school employees are entitled to robust protections for their religious expression,” the bill states.

New cancer ‘vaccine’ eliminates tumors…
Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The approach works for many different types of cancers, including those that arise spontaneously, the study found.
The researchers believe the local application of very small amounts of the agents could serve as a rapid and relatively inexpensive cancer therapy that is unlikely to cause the adverse side effects often seen with bodywide immune stimulation. “When we use these two agents together, we see the elimination of tumors all over the body,” said Ronald Levy, MD, professor of oncology. “This approach bypasses the need to identify tumor-specific immune targets and doesn’t require wholesale activation of the immune system or customization of a patient’s immune cells.”

Christians Lose Their Faith Because of These Errors in the Church

Christians Lose Their Faith Because of These Errors in the Church
(By Rachael Sammons) According to Life magazine, Pentecostal/charismatic Christians outnumber Anglicans, Baptists, Lutherans and Presbyterians combined. In Playing With Holy Fire (April 3, 2018), Michael L. Brown acknowledges how the wildfire spread of the Pentecostal/charismatic movement proves that the Holy Spirit is moving mightily among the people of God. Christians are traveling across the globe to teach the gospel. People are devoting their lives to God. From the Holy Ghost gospel services in a “tumble-down shack” to the half-billion adherents in the global modern church,
Pentecostal/charismatic Christianity has grown to bring more people to God than any other movement in history. However, such rapid growth means many ill-prepared leaders. In Playing With Holy Fire, Brown writes on the moral scandals and doctrinal errors that have become characteristic of the Pentecostal/charismatic church. Addressing the most glaring problems, Brown sounds a wake-up call for Christians to clean house in order to fulfill God’s kingdom purposes.

Gaua volcano alert level raised, Major unrest reported

Gaua volcano alert level raised, Major unrest reported
The Vanuatu Meteorology and Geohazards Department (VMGD) raised the Volcanic Alert Level of Gaua volcano from Level 1 to Level 2 on January 31, 2018. The decision restricts visitors from approaching the volcanic cone. A long period of dormancy of this volcano ended in 1962 with an eruption on its SE flank. Since then, the volcano erupted 15 times, including its last eruption in 2011. Observations performed from December 2017 to January 2018 confirm that the activity at Gaua volcano consists of ongoing volcanic steam cloud which may content volcanic gases, VGMD said today.
These observations and seismic analysis confirm that the volcano activity has increased to the major unrest state. Alert Level for Gaua volcano was at Level 1 since December 21, 2010. Based on its slight increased seismic activity and observation of ongoing volcanic gas emission and steam plumes in December 2017 and January 2018, the Volcanic Alert Level (VAL) was raised to Level 2. The current observations are consistent with the Alert Level 2 activity which indicates ‘Major Unrest’ – the danger is around the crater rim and specific area, there is a considerable possibility of an eruption and also a chance of a flank eruption.

Cryptocurrencies crash after India vows to eliminate their use
Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies are falling substantially on Thursday after India announced a crackdown on their trading and circulation. The largest cryptocurrency, bitcoin, dropped nine percent to $9,400, the lowest level seen since November. The Indian Finance Ministry on Thursday made bitcoin illegal and announced an upcoming ban. “The government does not consider cryptocurrencies as legal tender or coin and (will) take all measures to eliminate the use of crypto assets,”
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said. India is one of the largest bitcoin markets, with a 10 percent share. Cryptocurrencies have not been regulated there, but the government started a de-facto crackdown on cryptos last December. Users have been facing troubles with deposits and withdrawals from bank accounts linked to digital money, and the Indian Income Tax Department raided bitcoin exchanges across the country, seeking to identify cryptocurrency traders. “After today’s announcement, people are getting scared,” Bloomberg.

Some speculate that Supermoons may spark ‘Biblical year’ with the return of Christ
ATTENTION: The following report does not reflect the personal views or opinions of ETH

This year could be biblical according to Christians because two supermoons may spark the second coming of Jesus Christ. Christians believe the upcoming super blue blood moon which will dazzle the skies tomorrow, January 31, along with the supermoon that kicked off the year on January 1, are signs from God that 2018 will be a ‘biblical’ year, as it also marks the 70th anniversary of the birth of Israel.

Believers in Jesus Christ and God cite Israel as the Holy Land. In March 1948, Israel was declared as an independent nation following the Second World War. Christian conspiracy theorists are now saying the events are lining up in what could prove to be a biblical year. Website Unsealed writes: “If the Great American Eclipse was the darkened sun piece of the puzzle, perhaps this blood moon is the missing piece, which could mean the Day of the LORD begins soon, perhaps even this year.

Market Jitters As The Dow Falls 362 Points – Worst Drop In More Than A Year

Market Jitters As The Dow Falls 362 Points – Worst Drop In More Than A Year
It isn’t going to be a surprise when U.S. stock prices fall 50, 60 or 70 percent from where they are today. The only real surprise is that it took this long for it to happen. Even after falling 362 points on Tuesday, the Dow Jones industrial average is still ridiculously high. In fact, the only two times in our entire history when stocks have been this overvalued were right before the stock market crash of 1929 and right before the dotcom bubble burst. Not even before the financial crisis of 2008 were stock valuations as absurd as they are right now. At one point on Tuesday, the Dow had declined by more than 400 points, and we have not seen this sort of panic in the stock market in a very long time.
In fact, we have to go all the way back to June 24, 2016 to find the last time that the Dow fell by at least this much. The Dow has dropped by triple digits on back to back days for the first time since last April, and a lot of analysts are wondering what is coming next. Of course most in the financial community have been waiting for some sort of a decline, because even mainstream analysts are openly admitting that what we have been witnessing is “not sustainable”… “We’ve had a unilateral move higher [in stocks] to start things off and people are realizing this is not sustainable,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley FBR. “You’re also seeing some cracks in the global story with interest rates rising.”

Jim Caviezel Claims New ‘Passion of the Christ’ Sequel to be ‘biggest film in history’
Jim Caviezel, who stunned the world with his portrayal of Jesus in the 2004 blockbuster “The Passion of the Christ,” is now confirming he’s on board with director Mel Gibson for a sequel, and predicts it will be “the biggest film in history.” “There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience,” the 49-year-old actor told USA Today. “It’s great. Stay tuned.” Both Gibson and Caviezel have not said much about the story focusing on the resurrection of Christ,
but the star indicated he’s encouraged by the direction the project is taking. “I won’t tell you how he’s going to go about it,” Caviezel said of Gibson. “But I’ll tell you this much, the film he’s going to do is going to be the biggest film in history. It’s that good.” The original “Passion of the Christ” followed the last 12 hours of Christ’s life. The movie brought in more than $611 million worldwide on a $30 million budget, and remains the highest-grossing R-rated film ever in North America with $370.8 million.

Top scientist who claims human-chimp hybrids were born in Florida says we could soon crossbreed with all great apes
A top evolutionary psychologist believes humans could soon crossbreed with all great apes to create hybrid “hurillas” and “hurangs”. Gorgon Gallup’s bombshell claim comes after he alluded to a human-chimpanzee hybrid born in a Florida lab 100 years ago, before doctors killed the “humanzee”. The scientist, who teaches biopsychology at the University of Albany in New York, insists crossbreeding is not limited just chimpanzees.
He said: “All of the available evidence – fossil, paleontological and biochemical – including DNA itself, suggests that humans can also breed with gorillas and orangutans. “Humans and all three of the great apes species are all descended from a single common ape-like ancestry. “I’ve also coined what would be the appropriate terms to refer to human-gorilla hybrids and human-orangutan hybrids which would be a ‘hurilla’ and a ‘hurang’.”

Mysterious 8.5-mile pyramid’ discovered at bottom of the ocean
Could this bizarre object, described as a giant ancient pyramid and found at the bottom of the sea, be a clue to the site of the mythological City of Atlantis? The structure, estimated as being between 3.5 and 11 miles across, was spotted on Google Earth in the Pacific Ocean just west of Mexico. A video about the discovery uploaded to YouTube has drawn vast speculation about what it could be, including an ancient sunken city, a bizarre UFO, or even an alien base.
The “discovery” was made by Argentinian Marcelo Igazusta. He says in a video about the find it is an alien UFO left underwater. The video commentary described it has being “an intense light in the Pacific Ocean” of 3.5 miles in length, with a shape similar to a plane. Scott C Waring, an alien conspiracy theorist, said: “It is a perfect pyramid that measures over 8.5 miles across one side of its base. Thats a conservative estimate, it could be up to 11 miles across.”

Police Identified 2nd ‘person of interest’ days after Vegas shooting…
A judge on Tuesday unsealed nearly 300 pages of search warrant records, including one document that publicly identified for the first time an additional “person of interest” in the Oct. 1 massacre on the Las Vegas Strip. “Until the investigation can rule otherwise, Marilou Danley and Douglas Haig have become persons of interest who may have conspired with Stephen Paddock to commit Murder with a Deadly Weapon,” according to the Metropolitan Police Department document, which was prepared in October.
Danley was Paddock’s girlfriend and initially was named as a person of interest in the investigation. Haig, whose name had not been previously released, could not be reached for immediate comment Tuesday. When contacted by phone Tuesday about the newly released name, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said only, “If you’ve got it, publish it.” He said he could not comment on a federal case.

Pentagon Warns Of China and Russia Soon Capable of Destroying U.S. Satellites
China and Russia are developing anti-satellite missiles and other weapons and will soon be capable of damaging or destroying all U.S. satellites in low-earth orbit, according to the Pentagon’s Joint Staff. The Joint Staff intelligence directorate, known as J-2, issued the warning in a recent report on the growing threat of anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons from those states, according to officials familiar with the assessment.
The report concludes that “China and Russia will be capable of severely disrupting or destroying U.S. satellites in low-earth orbit” in the next several years, said the officials. The capability to attack low-earth orbit satellites could be in place by 2020, the officials said. A Joint Staff spokesman declined to comment, citing a policy of not discussing internal reports. The J-2 report echoes a similar but less specific warning from Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats in May.

Florida Female Student Who Identifies as Male Sues to Use Boys’ Restroom, Locker Room at School
A female student in Florida who identifies as a male has filed a lawsuit along with her parents in an effort to obtain access to the boys’ restroom and locker room facilities. The 15-year-old, who is only being identified as John Doe in the legal challenge, has suffered from gender dysphoria since she was in the second grade. According to the American Psychiatric Association, which publishes the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, a “gender dysphoria diagnosis involves a difference between
one’s experienced/expressed gender and assigned gender, and significant distress or problems functioning.” The youth’s parents had her named changed to a boy’s name during the third grade, and she began presenting herself as male. She also underwent hormone replacement therapy in middle school and had chest reconstruction surgery last year. Throughout her schooling in Volusia County, the student has requested to use the boys’ restroom and locker room, and has been directed to use the single occupancy restrooms as a compromise.

Lab-bred mosquitoes to fly near Miami to help combat Zika virus
Thousands of bacteria-infected mosquitoes will be flying near Miami to test a new way to suppress insect populations that carry Zika and other viruses. According to a statement from the Kentucky-based company MosquitoMate, the first mosquitoes will be released in the city of South Miami. The test is in collaboration with the Miami-Dade County Mosquito Control and Habitat Management Division.
MosquitoMate infects male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes with the naturally occurring Wolbachia bacteria. Any offspring produced when the lab-bred mosquitoes mate with wild female mosquitoes won’t survive to adulthood. Male mosquitoes don’t bite, and Wolbachia isn’t harmful to humans.

Life expectancy in the United States keeps dropping
Life expectancy in the United States has dropped again following last year’s decline, which marked the first downturn in more than two decades. On average, Americans can now expect to live 78.6 years, a statistically significant drop of 0.1 year, according to a report on 2016 data published Thursday by the National Center for Health Statistics. Women can now expect to live a full five years longer than men: 81.1 years vs. 76.1 years. The last time the agency recorded a multiyear drop was in 1962 and 1963. “I still don’t think you can call it a trend,

because you really need more than two data points to call something a trend,” said Bob Anderson, chief of the mortality statistics branch at the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “But it’s certainly concerning to see this two years in a row.” Anderson said he is particularly concerned about drug overdose deaths, most of which are opioid-related. “We have data for almost half of 2017 at this point. It’s still quite provisional, but it suggests that we’re in for another increase” in drug-related deaths, he said.

Mysterious orange cave crocodiles mutating into a new species
A group of mysterious orange cave crocodiles who live in complete darkness in Africa may be mutating into a new species. Researchers discovered the 1.5-metre-long (5 ft) reptiles in 2008 in a remote cave in Gabon, western Africa, where they fed only on bats and crickets. Experts first thought they were a type of African dwarf crocodile, but new research shows they could be an entirely separate species.
Scientists led by the Institute of Research for Development in Marseille found about 30 specimens in the cave, including 10 orange crocodiles. They suspect more crocodiles remain hidden in the depths of the cave’s system of rooms, which are filled with water. The team said new genetic tests show the isolated group may be branching off from their African dwarf cousins.

First snow in 50 years leaves southern Morocco paralyzed
Following unprecedented road conditions across Morocco on January 20, 2018, when 5 000 km (3 100 miles) of roads were closed due to what authorities described as ‘exceptional’ snowfall, heavy snow arrived to the country’s southern regions on January 29, for the first time in 50 years. To address the unprecedented road conditions earlier this month, the Moroccan Ministry of Equipment, Transport, and Logistics mobilized 117 snow plows, acknowledging that the blockages disproportionally affected rural areas and promising huge investment in rural roads.
The minister also made a public reminder that, before getting behind the wheel, Moroccans can use the application “MaRoute” to access the most recent information about the state of the roads across the country, the Morocco World News reported. As if that wasn’t enough, an unusually heavy snowfall started affecting Morocco’s southern regions on January 29, after several decades of extremely dry weather. The snowfall is currently affecting Ouarzazate (gateway to the Sahara Desert), Taroudant and even Zagora, which hasn’t experienced snowfall since 1968.

DEVELOPING: Major volcano cluster in Japan, Eruption Imminent, Warning raised to highest level
A major cluster of volcanoes in Japan could be set to erupt after officials raised the warning to the highest level. The country’s meteorological agency lifted the warning on Zao, a series of volcanoes in northern Japan whose highest point is 1,841 meters (6,040 ft). It comes a week after another volcanic eruption in Japan killed one man and left dozens of others injured at a tourist ski resort. The Zao warning increased from two from one, meaning that people should avoid going near the crater. “There is a possibility of a small-scale eruption,” the Japan Meteorological Agency said in a statement.
The agency said small earth movements were detected on Tuesday, along with a slight bulging of the ground in one area. It also warned of the possibility that volcanic rocks could be thrown as far as a mile in any eruption. The announcement came a week after a member of Japan’s military was struck and killed when rocks from the sudden eruption of the Kusatsu-Shirane volcano which rained down on skiers at a mountain resort in central Japan.

Atheist Group Forces New Mexico College to Remove Crosses Displayed on Campus
A junior college in New Mexico has been forced by the nation’s largest atheist legal group to remove several Christian crosses that were previously displayed throughout the public school campus. New Mexico Junior College in Hobbs has taken down a number of crosses that were either hung up or displayed in several areas throughout the campus after the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to the college’s President Kelvin Sharp earlier this month.
The letter was written by FFRF legal fellow Christopher line and sent on Jan. 18. “It is our understanding that New Mexico Junior College has numerous crosses on display. We understand that there is a cross in the main reception area of the Ben Alexander Student Center that sits on the counter and faces the public,” the letter reads. “We also understand that several offices, including the cashier’s office, contain crosses that are easily visible to anyone visiting or passing by these offices.” READ MORE https://www.christianpost.com/news/atheist-group-forces-new-mexico-college-remove-crosses-displayed-on-campus-215530/

US chief warns of North Korea missile launch in days as Kim uses Winter Olympics as cover
US Army General Jack Keane has claimed the sporting event could be used as a disguise for the test launch of one of the dictator’s deadly ICBM rockets. North Korea had seemingly relaxed World War 3 tensions by engaging in diplomatic talks with its neighbors in the South and agreeing to send athletes to the winter games across the border. But General Keane has urged people to remember the danger the hermit nation and its despot leader continue to pose.
The US Army veteran said: “I think if he does something, it’ll likely be another missile test.” Gen Keane added he was “speculating” about “one of the things” Kim Jong-un “could do”. He added: “I think he is getting out of this what he wanted. “He uses negotiations to promote goodwill, and it’s obviously not going to work, trying to drive a wedge between South Korea, the United States and Japan, which is not going to happen here.

Ford developing AI-driven police car to catch speeding drivers
Car company Ford is developing an Artificial Intelligence-driven police vehicle to catch law-breaking motorists. The US automotive firm revealed its plans to revolutionize how the roads are policed used state-of-the-art technology. The automation cop car will be designed to snare drivers going too fast; will be used as a surveillance device and will even be able to issue tickets to people. The AI police car will be fitted with cameras,
wireless communication sensors and is designed to go out an about on its own or with a human inside. And it can even be linked to other police vehicles so it can call for back-up in an emergency situation. A patent for the design released by Ford states: “An autonomous police vehicle may enforce traffic laws by identifying violators, pulling over the offending vehicle, capturing an image of the license plate of the offending vehicle… determining whether to issue a warning or a ticket.

Earthquake rocks Japan as Ring of Fire remains on High Alert
Japan has been rocked by an earthquake as the Pacific Ring of Fire remains on alert following a geologically chaotic week for the region. The earthquake registered 5.1 magnitudes at struck at a depth of 37 miles off the east coast of Honshu. The Japan earthquake struck 46 miles from the town of Miyako, which is home to more than 50,000 people. Morioka-shi, home to nearly 300,000 people, is 73 miles from the epicenter.
It comes after a week of chaos in the region, with a volcanic eruption sparking a fatal avalanche in Japan earlier this week. The Pacific Ring of Fire is the most geologically active area in the world with more than 90 percent of earthquakes occurring here, as well as 22 or the 25 biggest volcanic eruptions in history. The volatility on the Pacific Ring of Fire this week has increased fears for the Big One: a major earthquake in a highly-populated area on the US west coast or in Japan.

More than 50,000 deaths expected from Flu Season from Hell!
Children returning to school after the winter holidays appear to be sharing more than just their new toys. They are driving influenza infections to levels not seen since the swine flu pandemic of 2009, public health officials said. By the time this flu season is over, experts said, more than 50,000 Americans will be dead. While the year’s flu activity is actually starting to cool in some regions, it remains high across most of the country and is gaining in other areas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Mortality rates, which trail infections, spiked sharply, with seven additional children dying from the
infection over the past week, said CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald. Thus far, 37 children have died as a resistant strain of the virus dominates the season. The government said that number may double before its over. “This rapid increase in cases that we have been seeing is after the winter holidays, and while it’s among all ages, it’s higher in children,” said Dan Jernigan, director of the influenza division at the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. “It looks like a big part of the later January activity is flu transmission from kids returning to school.”

Schools Close in 11 States as Flu Epidemic Spreads
Schools in at least 11 states have closed as the worst flu epidemic in nearly a decade intensifies. The dominant strain of flu this season, H3N2, known for being particularly virulent, has resulted in the deaths of at least 37 children and is expected to cause more as the epidemic persists several more weeks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention projected on Friday.
Seven children died this week, authorities said. Hospitalizations, a predictor of the death rate, rose to 41.9 people per 100,000, up from 36.9 the week before. An estimated total number of deaths due to the flu won’t be available until next season, according to the CDC. Outpatient hospital visits by people with the flu have been skyrocketing for several weeks, and as of mid-January had surpassed every season except 2009-10, when a new strain of flu caused a global pandemic.

Flu season worst since 2009 swine flu pandemic
Federal health officials warned Friday that this year’s flu outbreak is more severe than any other since the 2009 swine flu pandemic, and that its intensity is still increasing. Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in a phone call with reporters that the number of people experiencing flu-like symptoms is increasing. Hospitalizations for influenza are also rising. What’s more, flu activity has stayed at the same level nationwide for about three weeks, said Dr. Dan Jernigan, the director of the CDC’s Influenza Division.
That sets it apart from many flu seasons, in which activity wanes in certain parts of the U.S. “We often see different parts of the country ‘light up’ at different times, but for the past 3 weeks, the entire country has been experiencing lots of flu, all at the same time,” he said. The deaths of seven children from the flu were reported to the CDC this week, bringing the total number of child deaths this flu season to 37, CDC Director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald said.

Is the Current Influenza Outbreak a Sign of the End Times?
Jan 28, 2018 | 0  |     
Is the Current Influenza Outbreak a Sign of the End Times?
Towards the end of the age, Revelation describes the four horsemen, who symbolize the terrible events, that will plague the earth just before the return of Jesus Christ. Revelation 6 describes each horse, and each horse has a specific color and symbol, with a meaning that is explained further by looking at Matthew 24. The white horse symbolizes religious deception; the red horse, warfare; the black horse, famine; and the pale horse, death.
The fourth horseman (Revelation 6:7–8), the pale horse, comes after famine in Matthew 24, where Jesus Christ mentions pestilences—disease epidemics (Matthew 24:7). The pale horse is symbolic of the pestilences (the definition of the word, pestilence, used in Matthew 24:7 is: a contagious or infectious epidemic disease that is virulent and devastating) that will plague the earth just before the return of Jesus Christ. Interestingly, the Greek word translated “pale” is chlōros, a greenish color, likely describing either a sickly appearance or the color of decaying flesh. This pale horse will ravage one-quarter of the earth by violence, hunger and “the beasts of the earth” (Revelation 6:8)—A surprising fact is that 75 percent of emerging infectious diseases are transmitted from animals (beasts of the earth) to humans. In recent years we have seen swine flu (from pigs), avian flu (from birds) and Ebola virus (from primates).
With today’s population, we can figure out that these calamities will kill over 1.5 billion people! Given the modern medical technology we have available today, this may seem impossible, yet warnings of devastating global epidemics are appearing with increasing frequency…

School Board Member Concerned After Homework Assignment Claims Christians, Muslims Worship Same God

School Board Member Concerned After Homework Assignment Claims Christians, Muslims Worship Same God
“Do you know what your children are being taught: Muslims believe in the same God as Christians and Jews?” That’s the question a school board member in Illinois recently posted online after her daughter came home with an assignment that included an article claiming that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Jeannette Ward of the U46 School Board posted the text of the assignment to her social media page to show others the kinds of messages that are being presented to students, and to outline why she voted no on the curriculum the previous year.
“Judaism, Christianity and Islam are three of the world’s major religions. While they have many differences, they all believe in the same God,” the assignment read. “In each religion, God is ‘revealed’ by a chosen messenger, called a prophet. Some of the prophets that Jews follow were Noah, Abraham and Moses. Christians follow these prophets too. They also think that Jesus was another prophet of the same God,” it stated. “Later, Muhammad founded Islam by declaring himself a prophet. He said he was the next in the same line of prophets. He also said that he would be the last.”

Two Huge Earthquakes Strike Atlantic

Two Huge Earthquakes Strike Atlantic
Two strong earthquakes measuring magnitudes of 6.5 and 5.0 have struck the same region of the Atlantic Ocean, sparking assurances a tsunami is not expected. The two earthquakes struck in the same region of the ocean around 1300 miles from the southern coast of South Africa. The first struck at 2.03pm GMT and registered 6.5. The US tsunami warning center said there was no threat to the east coast of America
or Canada. They said: “There is no tsunami danger for the U.S. east coast, the Gulf of Mexico states, or the eastern coast of Canada. “Based on earthquake information and historic tsunami records, the earthquake is not expected to generate a tsunami.” The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued an alert assuring those living in the Caribbean a tsunami was not expected.

Is the Great Deception Here?
Jan 28, 2018 | 0  |     
Is the Great Deception Here?
(Bu Hal Lindsey) Some call it fake news. Jesus called it deception. When His disciples asked about the signs of the last days, Jesus began by giving His followers this warning: “Take heed that no one deceives you” (Matthew 24:4).
We live in an age of deception – fake news, false advertising, viral lies and clickbait. The mainstream media perpetrate falsehoods regularly, as do various alternative media. But one of the major sources of 21st-century deception can be found in an unlikely place: our schools. For instance, the U.S. Department of Education urges all public schools to teach Islam.
It’s really just thinly veiled propaganda, though they would certainly not use that word. The DoE says schools should teach Islam “to create an anti-bias learning environment.” Many regularly teach the religious doctrine that God and Allah are the same. Forget the “separation of church and state” arguments for the moment. This one teaching alone is a form of gross – and deadly – deception. And the deception is being inculcated in our malleable children, by order of the state!

Miracle ‘River of Hail’ collectively fills some dams to the point of overflowing in drought-stricken Northern Cape, South Africa

Miracle ‘River of Hail’ collectively fills some dams to the point of overflowing in drought-stricken Northern Cape, South Africa
Many citizens are resigning themselves to dry dams and a complete shutdown of their taps in Cape Town, South Africa. But, as we’ve seen in the Northern Cape, it may not be time to rule out a miracle just yet. Over the weekend, the city of Sutherland heavy rainfalls and biblical hailstorms battered the town with some places receiving between 100 – 150cm of rain in 48 hours. These unprecedented storms were enough to collectively fill some dams in the Northern Cape to the point of overflowing and create icebergs in the resulting flash floods.
The miracle “River of hail” has to be seen to be believed: The NC territory is experiencing an unprecedented drought just like its neighbor to the south. Rainfall between September to December has been almost non-existent for the last three years in NC. Sutherland was one town in the province that had been hit badly by the lesser-known water crisis. So imagine their relief when, dams that were reportedly almost empty, were saved by the mother of all freak weather patterns.

Justin Bieber Takes Mom to Hillsong Church After Years of Estrangement

Justin Bieber Takes Mom to Hillsong Church After Years of Estrangement
Justin Bieber is usually seen at his Hillsong home church in Beverly Hills with girlfriend Selena Gomez. But this week, the pop star took his mother to the Wednesday night worship service. Bieber was photographed outside of the church as his mom Pattie Mallette was being pushed out of the building in a wheelchair, Hollywood Life reports. The 41-year-old broke her foot while the pair was vacationing in the Maldives.
Pattie’s attendance at the service is not strange or new as she is an outspoken Christian, who often shares scriptures on social media sites like Twitter and Instagram. Pattie raised Bieber to believe in Jesus and she even introduced him to Pastor Judah Smith, who is now a good friend and mentor to the pop-star. “When I was 7, she wouldn’t let me listen to anything but [Pastor] Judah’s tapes falling asleep,” Bieber said in a 2015 Billboard interview. The mother and son were estranged for a couple of years before the young singer gave his life to Christ last summer.

Anne Graham Lotz Event Draws 500,000 in India; Multitudes Accept Jesus as Savior
Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz drew close to 500,000 people at a prayer event in India earlier this month. And at a separate gathering of 10,000, almost “every hand” went up when people were asked if they want to receive Jesus Christ as Savior, her ministry reported.  According to Vicki Bentley, a member of AnGeL Ministries Board who traveled with Lotz to India, there were advertisements all over the city of Hyderabad for the second annual “National Day of Prayer,” which Lotz was a speaker at.
Local organizers helped put together the large gathering, with thousands of people arriving on trains, buses, and other forms of transportation from the countryside as well. AnGeL Ministries noted that according to police estimates, as many as 500,000 people in total attended the prayer call. “Anne preached on Daniel the prophet. She explained from Daniel 9 that ‘one man, who knew God and prayed, moved heaven and changed a nation.’ Then she challenged those present to pray as Daniel did,” Bentley recounted.

Atheist Group Forces California School District to Cancel Field Trip to Christian Camp

Atheist Group Forces California School District to Cancel Field Trip to Christian Camp
A California public school district has canceled a field trip to a Christian retreat center after the nation’s largest atheist legal group filed a complaint. The Dixie School District based out of San Rafael has reportedly nixed its plans for a fifth-grade field trip to the Alliance Redwoods Conference Center in Occidental, a Christian organization that has provided outdoor and science education opportunities to Northern California schools for over 30 years and serves 45,000 people annually.
The decision comes after the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which advocates for a strict separation of church and state, sent a letter to Superintendent Jason Yamashiro last month. The letter, sent by attorney Elizabeth Cavell, argued that because the camp has an overtly Christian mission and only hires Christians, it is unconstitutional to send public school children there.

Here Are The Top 30 Evidences for God!
Jan 26, 2018 | 0  |     
Here Are The Top 30 Evidences for God!
1. The Fine-Tuning Argument. The obvious fine-tuning of the world “proves” the existence of a “Designer.” Science has calculated the odds against our universe randomly taking a form suitable for life as: One in 10,000,000,000124 [Ravi Zacharias, The End of Reason, p. 35]
2. The Teleological Argument (Design). The obvious design (complexity) of the world “proves” the existence of a “Designer.” Science has estimated that the odds that intelligent life exists on the Earth as the result of non-directed processes to be around: One in 102,000,000,000 [Cited in Gary Habermas and Mike Licona, The Case for the Resurrection, 2004, p. 179]
See: Fine-Tuning & Complexity of Life: Ultimate Proof
3. The Moral Argument. The existence of a universal morality among humans “proves” the existence of a universal “Lawgiver.” If the evolutionary worldview were true, we would be advanced animals acting on chemical impulses. Absolute moral standards would not exist. But they do exist! See: Moral Argument (Proof God Exists)
4. The cosmological argument. The principle of cause and effect “proves” the existence of an “uncaused Cause.” Simply put, nothing cannot create something, and therefore, either the universe has always existed or something outside the universe has always existed. Scientific evidence shows us that the universe hasn’t always existed. Therefore, the something outside of the universe, that has always existed, is God. Furthermore, the characteristics of this something are the same characteristics that are attributed to God. This argument has a logical progression, and is rational, compared to the atheist’s argument. See: Cosmological Argument (Proof God Exists)
5. The Golden Ratio. In God’s creation, there exists a “Golden Ratio” (the mathematical constant of 1.618) that is exhibited in a multitude of shapes, numbers, and patterns whose relationship can only be the result of the omnipotent, good, and all-wise God of Scripture. See: The Golden Ratio: Amazing Proof of God.

‘Jesus is Building His Church’ Inside Iran, Millions Watching Christian Satellite TV
This may come as a surprise to many, but Christianity is growing faster in the Islamic Republic of Iran than in any other country in the world. Tens of thousands in this overwhelmingly Muslim nation are abandoning that faith. Experts say the ongoing political crisis and economic challenges are fueling widespread anger against the regime. Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani is promising to resolve the
country’s economic, social and political problems after days of protests gripped the Islamic nation last month. “I want to promise our people, that the economic, social and cultural conditions of the country, although there are problems, although the people haven’t still achieved their dreams and demands, the government is capable of resolving the problems with the help of the people,” Rouhani told Iran’s state TV media. “God willing, together we’ll solve problems step-by-step.”

‘Limbless Evangelist’ Nick Vujicic Describes Seeing ’10-Foot-Tall Demons’ That Convinced Him God Is for Real
Nick Vujicic, known around the globe as the “limbless evangelist,” is on a tireless quest to spread the gospel.  And, over the years, he has openly discussed the rare disorder he suffers from — tetra-amelia syndrome, a disorder that caused him to be born without any limbs. Vujicic, who has established himself as a successful inspirational speaker, evangelist and author, appeared in a Facebook Live on Friday, during which he made some fascinating claims surrounding why he believes God is real.
He comments came as he was responding to someone who asked, “How can we know God’s love is real, and how do you know it?” Vujicic answered by appealing to his own spiritual experiences. “I can’t show you God, I can’t show you an angel, but one of the reasons why I’m not an atheist, and one of the reasons why I don’t believe science explains everything, is because I have seen miracles, and I’ve seen demons,” Vujicic said.

Puerto Rico warns its population that economy will plunge

Puerto Rico warns its population that economy will plunge
Puerto Rico’s governor submitted a revised fiscal plan overnight Thursday that estimates the U.S. Caribbean territory’s economy will shrink by 11 percent and its population drop by nearly 8 percent next year. The island is continuing to recover from the crippling impact of Hurricane Maria. The proposal doesn’t set aside any money to pay creditors in the next five years as the island struggles to restructure a portion of its $73 billion public debt. The original plan had set aside $800 million a year for creditors, a fraction of the roughly $35 billion due in interest and payments over the next decade.
The five-year plan also assumes Puerto Rico will receive at least $35 billion in emergency federal funds for post-hurricane recovery and another $22 billion from private insurance companies. Some analysts view that assumption as risky given that the U.S. Treasury Department and U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency recently told Puerto Rico officials that they are temporarily withholding billions of dollars approved by Congress last year for post-hurricane recovery because they felt the island currently had sufficient funds.

California experiencing quake spike over past 72 hours – Ring of Fire experts on Alert!

California experiencing quake spike over past 72 hours – Ring of Fire experts on Alert!
California has been rocked by an earthquake measure 5.8 magnitude, with a 5.0 shock following just minutes later in a day of seismic activity along the Ring of Fire which has put Californians on alert for the Big One.  The first shock measured 5.8 magnitude with a second 5.1 shock following shortly afterward. The most recent quake happened at 5.24pm GMT, or 9.24am local time, while the previous quake
happened just an hour previously, at 4.39pm (8.39am local time), with a higher magnitude of 5.8. The aftershock of the latter tremor was unintentionally posted as a separate earthquake on the US Geological Survey (USGS) website as separate 5.1 and 5.3 quakes, before being amended. The error was likely caused by another entity such as a tsunami warning agency recording the phenomenon, and a duplicate posting being made. The USGS told the LA Times it had received a few reports of the 4.39pm 5.8 quake being felt, but said it was unlikely to have affected many people because it occurred far off the coast.

Does This ‘Super Blue Moon’ Have Prophetic Significance?

Does This ‘Super Blue Moon’ Have Prophetic Significance?
(By Caitlin Burke) A special full moon is expected on Jan. 31, and if you’re in the western part of the U.S. you’ll have the best view. It’s being called a “Super Blue Blood Moon” and it’s special for three reasons, according to NASA: it’s the third in a series of “supermoons,” that’s when the moon is closer to Earth in its orbit and is brighter than usual. It’s also the second full moon of the month which is known as a “blue moon.”
Finally, the super blue moon will pass through Earth’s shadow, giving it a total lunar eclipse in some areas. While the moon is in the Earth’s shadow it will take on a reddish tint, known as a blood moon. “Weather permitting, the West Coast, Alaska and Hawaii will have a spectacular view of totality from start to finish,” said Gordon Johnston, program executive and lunar blogger at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Unfortunately, eclipse viewing will be more challenging in the Eastern time zone. The eclipse begins at 5:51 AM ET, as the moon is about to set in the western sky, and the sky is getting lighter in the east.” READ MORE http://endtimeheadlines.org/2018/01/does-this-super-blue-moon-have-prophetic-significance/


The Coming Judgment and the Coming Glory

The Coming Judgment and the Coming Glory
(By Bert Farias) One genuine prophet of God said he couldn’t see the condition of America past September of this year. I took it to mean that something terrible may happen. November is the time of midterm elections here in America. Could there be a vicious backlash from the angry leftists who have such hatred toward our bold bully president? Could there be an assassination attempt against him? The fight between good and evil in our nation has just begun. The liberal leftists are coming with a vengeance. They are already plotting and planning now for the overturn of Trump’s agenda that they hope will start with mid-term elections.
One righteous preacher predicted that barring a miracle in November, Nancy Pelosi may be back as the Speaker of the House again. How loathsome and nauseating that would be! He also predicted that it will be the greatest internal fight and leftist backlash in the history of our government. I submit all this to the reader for prayerful consideration. Some things can still be further delayed or stopped altogether through prayer and repentance. One thing is for sure: The time of shaking is here. And this statement, “Yet once more,” signifies the removal of those things that can be shaken, things that are created, so that only those things that cannot be shaken will remain.

Chinese Muslims Reject Allah and Embrace Christ

Chinese Muslims Reject Allah and Embrace Christ
For the few thousand Muslims in China who have become Christians, life is characterized by loneliness. Cast out from their families and communities, in the rural areas where most of them live it is difficult to find other Christians, especially under China’s strict religion regulations. According to World Watch Monitor, often Christians of Muslim background will get together in private homes in China, especially where there are only a few of them.
In February last year, World Watch Monitor reported that Chinese authorities in the north-western region of Xinjiang had banned all Christian activities not linked to state-approved churches, apparently in an “anti-terror” move. There are around 20 million Muslims in China, most of them belonging to the Hui and Uyghur ethnic groups, and nearly 100 million Christians, a comparatively small fraction of the country’s total population of 1.4 billion.

Google Home seems know everyone  but Jesus
Audio technology like Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa are becoming a dominant source for information. But now, it appears one of the most common names is unknown to Google Home. And some people are sounding the alarm about what the technology tells you when you ask about Jesus. Brentwood resident David Sams owns a Google Home and an Amazon audio speaker. He says both give two different answers when asking “Who is Jesus Christ?”
“I even asked Google who is David Sams? Google knew who I was, but Google did not know who Jesus was, Google did not know who Jesus Christ was, and Google did not know who God was,” Sams said.Smart speakers are a technology owned by about 40 million Americans — that’s about one in six people in the nation. And this religious conversation at home is making waves on social media.

Soros warns that Trump has US ‘set on a course towards nuclear war’
President Donald Trump has the U.S. on course for a nuclear war with North Korea, billionaire investor and progressive political activist George Soros said Thursday. In a blistering critique of the country under Trump’s leadership, the head of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Foundations painted a bleak picture. “The fact of nuclear war is so horrendous that we are trying to ignore it, but it is real,” Soros said during a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
“Indeed, the United States is set on a course towards nuclear war by refusing to accept that [North] Korea has become a nuclear power.” “This creates a strong incentive for North Korea to develop its nuclear capacity with all possible speed, which in turn may induce the United States to use its nuclear superiority pre-emptively, in effect to start a nuclear war to prevent a nuclear war, obviously a self-contradictory strategy.”

California Considers $1,000 Fine and Jail Time for Waiters Offering Straws…
Ian Calderon wants restaurateurs to think long and hard before giving you a straw. Calderon, the Democratic majority leader in California’s lower house, has introduced a bill to stop sit-down restaurants from offering customers straws with their beverages unless they specifically request one. Under Calderon’s law, a waiter who serves a drink with an unrequested straw in it would face up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
“We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans,” Calderon explained in a press release. This isn’t just Calderon’s crusade. The California cities of San Luis Obispo and Davis both passed straws-on-request laws last year, and Manhattan Beach maintains a prohibition on all disposable plastics. And up in Seattle, food service businesses won’t be allowed to offer plastic straws or utensils as of July.

Another massive asteroid to skim past Earth in 10 days
A huge asteroid, larger than any skyscraper ever built, is set to shoot past Earth in just 10 days as NASA warned the space rock is “potentially hazardous”. The 1.2km wide asteroid will fly by Earth on Sunday February 4, the same day that the US celebrates the NFL Super Bowl. The space agency has dubbed the massive rock 2002 AJ129 and it measures between 500m and 1.2km across, making the gigantic asteroid
larger than the Burj Khalifa. Judging by the orbit of the asteroid, NASA says that it will pass Earth just 2.6 million miles away – a hair’s width in astronomical terms. And it is expected to fly past at speeds of 76,000 mph making it nearly 16 times faster than the world’s quickest manned aircraft, the hypersonic North American X-15.

California has been rocked by an earthquake measure 5.8 magnitudes, with a 5.0 shock following just minutes later in a day of seismic activity along the Ring of Fire which has put Californians on alert for the Big One. The most recent quake happened at 5.24pm GMT, or 9.24am local time, in the so-classed “ring of fire”. Initially USGS reported two earthquakes in the space of 15 seconds at 5.24pm, however, this was later amended to reflect just one quake, with a magnitude of 5.0. The previous quake happened just an
hour previously, at 4.39pm (8.39am local time), with a higher magnitude of 5.8. It follows the 4.1 magnitude earthquake which rocked California this morning and was felt in both San Diego and Los Angeles. The tremors affected up to 10 million people across the state, according to USGS. This morning’s earthquake hit at 2.09am PST (10.09am GMT) with its epicenter 5km north east of Trabuco Canyon in California. Tremors were felt in San Diego and the Los Angeles area, with people shaken awake by the violent tremors, with one person saying there was huge “jolt”.

Investors dump US dollar & rush to gold
The gold price rose to its highest level in more than a year on Thursday as investors seek a safe haven after the US dollar dipped to a three-year low against a basket of six major currencies. The precious metal rose as high as $1,370 during the trading session before dropping six dollars, but still trading in the green compared to the previous session. The 2016 high was $1,374.91. Gold is benefiting tremendously from the weaker dollar,” said ETF Securities analyst Nitesh Shah, as quoted by Reuters.
“With traders’ base case scenario to sell the dollar at all costs, gold prices should remain well supported on dips and could be poised to move even higher on the next US dollar wobble,” said Stephen Innes, APAC head of trading at OANDA. The US dollar fell to its lowest level in three years against major currencies on Wednesday after US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the US administration favors a weak dollar in trade. On Thursday, Mnuchin confirmed his words.

Scientists Find Fault Line That Could Cause Mega Earthquake Running Under Beverly Hills…
New data from state geologists show that an earthquake fault runs below Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills’ shopping district, heightening the known seismic risk in an area famous for Cartier, Gucci, Prada and other luxury brands. The California Geological Survey’s final map has the Santa Monica fault zone cutting through the so-called Golden Triangle, running between Santa Monica and Wilshire boulevards.  The new map is a change from a draft version released last year that showed the fault zone ending on the western edge of Beverly Hills, near the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards.
Based on more information, the state now says the fault zone extends a mile farther northeast, through Beverly Hills’ central district and into the city’s civic center area. The Santa Monica is one of several faults running through highly populated areas of Southern California to generate interest and concern from seismic experts and government officials. The fault zone cuts through the heart of the Westside, straddling or paralleling Santa Monica Boulevard through Century City and Westwood before veering due west, with segments running into Brentwood, Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades.

John Piper Ignites Fire Storm for Saying Only Men Should Teach at Seminaries
Bethlehem College & Seminary Chancellor and DesiringGod.com founder John Piper has ignited another debate on women’s leadership roles in the Church after he said he doesn’t believe women should teach courses at seminaries. In an installment of the Desiring God podcast “Ask Pastor John” posted Monday, a listener named Scott asked Piper about his opinion of women serving as professors at theology schools.
“I’m a seminary student at an orthodox but interdenominational school in the United States. I share your complementarian understanding of God’s design for male and female roles and relationships in the home and church,” wrote Scott. “On that basis, I have recently doubted whether or not my seminary ought to allow women to teach pastors in training. What do you think? Should women be hired as seminary professors? What is your best case?”

Atheist Group Targets Ben Carson over ‘Secretive’ White House Cabinet Bible Study
The weekly Bible study attended by members of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet is once again under attack, this time from an atheist group. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is suing the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), led by Secretary Ben Carson. The group has issued Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) requests to agencies led by Cabinet secretaries who attend the Bible study to see if government resources are being used or if agency staffers feel “coerced into organizing or even participating in the religious event,” according to a press release. No staff members attend the Bible studies, it’s for cabinet secretaries only. FFRF and CREW sued HUD when it failed to waive fees for its FOIA requests.

Are humans next to be cloned?
For the first time, researchers have used the cloning technique that produced Dolly the sheep to create healthy monkeys, bringing science an important step closer to being able to do the same with humans. Since Dolly’s birth in 1996, scientists have cloned nearly two dozen kinds of mammals, including dogs, cats, pigs, cows and polo ponies, and have also created human embryos with this method. But until now,
they have been unable to make babies this way in primates, the category that includes monkeys, apes and people. “The barrier of cloning primate species is now overcome,” declared Muming Poo of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shanghai. In a paper released Wednesday by the journal Cell, he and his colleagues announced that they successfully created two macaques. The female baby monkeys, about 7 and 8 weeks old, are named Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua.

Rare Super Blue Moon Coming This Month For First Time In 150 Years
A blue moon, a supermoon and a lunar eclipse will all fall on the same night for the first time in more than 150 years this month. The three phenomena will all occur on January 31. And it is also set to be a blood moon, the name given to the moon during a total lunar eclipse when it appears red in color. It is extremely rare for all three lunar events to occur at the same time. The last time a blue moon, a
supermoon and a lunar eclipse all happened at once was on March 31, 1866. The three night-time phenomena also all coincided on December 30, 1982, however, this only applied to the eastern hemisphere. This was due to there not being a blue moon in North America – as this is the name given to the second full moon in a month. Time zones meant the previous full moon occurred on November 30 for those in the West.

Will the Doomsday clock move closer to midnight?

Will the Doomsday clock move closer to midnight?
The Doomsday clock is set to tell us how near to apocalyptic annihilation we are later today. But what is the clock and why could it move closer to midnight? Since its inception in 1947, the symbolic Doomsday Clock has warned humanity how close the world is to catastrophe hypothetically every year.
It works by judging how near the minute hand is to midnight – the nearer it is, the closer Earth is to disaster. The dangers by which the assessment is made include nuclear attacks, climate change, cyber warfare and bioterrorism. The proclamations are made by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, an independent and non-profit body “with a goal of influencing public policy to protect our planet and all its inhabitants”.

Deadly Flu Season Causing Supply Shortages At Doctors’ Offices and Hospitals

Deadly Flu Season Causing Supply Shortages At Doctors’ Offices and Hospitals
The flu has hit so hard and heavy this year, some doctors are running out of supplies. “I have heard from private practices that they are running short on the rapid flu tests,” says Allegheny General Hospital Emergency Medicine physician Dr. Tom Campbell. “I think they could make some decision on who it was most important to get the test on, who was most at risk, and use the same number they might have left.” Restocking these 10-minute tests isn’t so easy. “We went to purchase more because of the use we’ve had
this year, and they’re not available,” says Dr. James DeAngelo, of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Associates. Other places are in good shape. “I think a lot of it is proactive. Our supply chain folks have done a really good job of managing it, monitoring it, and try to keep our orders coming in on time,” says Dave Kish, RN of the St. Clair Hospital Emergency Department. The test involves swabbing the back of the nose or throat to check for influenza DNA. READ MORE http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2018/01/24/flu-season-supplies-shortage/

Magnitude 4.0 Earthquake rattles Southern California

Magnitude 4.0 Earthquake rattles Southern California
A light earthquake rattled Southern California early Thursday morning in the latest sign of seismic activity this week along the “Ring of Fire,” but the shaking did not result in any reports of damage or injuries. The United States Geological Survey said the quake, with a magnitude of 4.0, occurred just after 2 a.m. Thursday about 31 miles southeast of Anaheim. The quake had a depth of about six miles, according to the USGS.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office told The Associated Press there have been no reports of damage or injury. Residents across the region took to Twitter in the early hours of Thursday to share what they felt. The temblor came two days after a magnitude 7.9 quake off the coast of Alaska trigged tsunami alerts for the West Coast of the U.S., and one day after a magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck off the coast of Japan.

DEVELOPING: Earthquake swarm in progress along the coast of Australia

DEVELOPING: Earthquake swarm in progress along the coast of Australia
A seismic swarm is in progress along the coast of northern New South Wales, Australia since Friday, January 19, 2018, raising fears that a bigger earthquake might hit the region. Authorities say that while they can’t rule out a bigger one, they don’t see it likely. From 22:50 UTC on January 19 to 08:08 UTC on January 24, Geoscience Australia registered a total of 21 earthquakes along the coast of NSW, between Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour, with magnitudes ranging from 1.8 to 4.2 and depths up to 10 km (6.2 miles).
The strongest so far was M4.2 at a depth of 10 km with epicenter located just off the coast of Nambucca Heads. The quake hit at 02:28 UTC on January 24 (13:28 local time). There are no reports of injuries and no threat of a tsunami. Locals reported minor damage (cracked walls) and said the shaking lasted between 10 and 15 seconds. “It’s not unusual to get a swarm of earthquakes when stresses exceed the strength of the rock,” Geoscience Australia said, adding that they continue to receive felt reports from Scott’s Heads (south of M4.2 earthquake). These, however, are too small and cannot be located accurately by our instruments, the agency added.

DEVELOPING: More earthquakes strike along Ring of Fire as seismic surge continues
More earthquakes have hit along the Ring of Fire – and there may be hundreds more to come. In the last few days, earthquakes have also brought terror to Alaska, Papua New Guinea, Mexico, Indonesia, Hawaii and Chile while Japan has seen the spectacular eruption of Mount Kusatsu-Shirane – all of which are on the terrifying Ring of Fire. The Ring of Fire is the largest and most active fault line in the world, stretching from New Zealand, all around the east coast of Asia, over to Canada and the USA and all the way down to the southern tip of South America.
And in the last 24 hours, scores more earthquakes have hit the zone. Chile was hit by a strong 5.4 magnitude tremor at 7.45 GMT, while California and Alaska have also been struck since midnight. As a result of the non-stop activity experts are worried something unusual is happening. Meteorologist for Fox News, Dan Amarante, posted on Twitter: “Boy, it’s been an active few days in the Pacific Ring of Fire. Another fairly strong earthquake, this time just off the coast of northern Japan.”

78 quakes reported near Kodiak after powerful Earthquake strikes off coast of Alaska
The 7.9 magnitude Alaska earthquake has been followed by 78 large aftershocks in a surge of seismic activity along the Ring of Fire. According to United States Geological Survey (USGS) data, more than 70 smaller tremors have rocked the Gulf of Alaska in the hours since yesterday’s quake, which was the joint seventh-largest earthquake ever recorded in the region.
The first major aftershocks came just 15 minutes after the 7.9-quake struck at 12.31am local time (9.31am GMT) on Tuesday, with the largest measuring 5.6 on the moment magnitude scale. Most of the tremors that followed were recorded in the same localized area but are unlikely to have been felt by humans because of the area’s distance to any populated areas. The vast majority of the tremors that followed measured between 2.5 and 4.5 on the Richter scale.

Man from Netherlands Warns of Coming “Megaquake” to Strike West Coast in March
ATTENTION: The following report does not reflect the views or opinions of ETH
The magnitude 8 earthquake which struck off the coast of Alaska today is just the start of a huge seismic shift that will hit the west coast of the US in coming weeks, a self-styled prophet has warned.  Frank Hoogerbeets, based in the Netherlands, claims to be able to predict when earthquakes will happen based on the alignments of planets in our solar system.
Alaska has been hit by a 7.9 magnitude earthquake, sparking a tsunami warning across the entire US west coast and Canada as mass tremors along the Ring of Fire increased dramatically in the last 24 hours. Mr Hoogerbeets claims it was a precursor for a Big One along the west coast US, that he has been warning of. He told Express.co.uk: “The large earthquake in the Gulf of Alaska was anticipated, but occurred a bit sooner than expected.

Japan Struck by 6.2 Earthquake off Coast of Honshu, Ring Of Fire Continues To Reel
A day after a massive earthquake near Alaska sparked tsunami alerts for the U.S. West Coast, a magnitude 6.2 quake was reported early Wednesday off the coast of Japan, officials said. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit at 9:50 p.m. local time about 64 miles northeast of the island of Honshu, at a depth of about 24 miles. The temblor on Wednesday was much deeper and weaker than the one off the coast of Alaska.
No tsunami watches or warnings were issued from the Japan quake, and there were no immediate reports of injuries. It was just the latest spark of activity this week along the volatile “Ring of Fire” seismic fault system. More than half the world’s active volcanoes located above ground are in this ring, according to the USGS. The region is the location of most of Earth’s subduction zones, where oceanic plates slide under the lighter continental plates.

Last Remaining Fragments of Dead Sea Scroll Deciphered – Here’s What It Revealed

Last Remaining Fragments of Dead Sea Scroll Deciphered – Here’s What It Revealed
More than 60 years after their discovery, Israeli experts have finally figured out the contents of one of the last two undeciphered fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Scientists at Haifa University reconstructed 60 tiny fragments that were part of six different scrolls. What they discovered after they put it all together was a unique 364-day calendar used by a Jewish sect living during the Second Temple time. “Most Jews used a calendar that is similar to the one used today,” Dr. Eshbal Ratzon of Haifa University told Israel’s Haaretz newspaper. “The sect used a calendar that is almost based on a solar year, comprising 364 days.”
Notes on the fragments show the sect even gave names to the days marking the four seasons. The days were referred to by the word “Tekufah” which in Hebrew means “period.” “This term is familiar from the later Rabbinical literature and from mosaics dating to the Talmudic period, and we could have assumed that it would also be used with this meaning in the scrolls, but this is the first time it has been revealed,” remarked professor Jonatan Ben-Dov, who helped Ratzon decipher the ancient texts.

Kentucky school shooting leaves 14 shot and at least 2 dead
A 15-year-old boy shot 14 people Tuesday morning at southwestern Kentucky high school, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said. A 15-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl died. Five others suffered non-gunshot injuries, the governor said. The suspect in the incident at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky, has been apprehended, according to officials with Marshall County Emergency Management. It was the nation’s first fatal school shooting of 2018.
Police were seen leading a teenager away in handcuffs. The shooter will be charged with murder and attempted murder, Kentucky State Police Lt. Michael Webb said.  “He was apprehended by the sheriff’s department here on site, at the school, thankfully before any more lives could be taken,” Webb said. Police did not release any identities, nor did they describe a motive. Webb said detectives are looking into his home and background.

‘Massive object hundreds of miles long’ spotted on NASA live feed before being Cut
A Huge object spotted on a NASA’s live field has sparked wild claims an alien UFO “hundreds of miles long” is orbiting Earth. The footage, taken from a live stream from the International Space Station, a bright golden light is seen “over 200 miles” away from the camera.  It remains in the same place as the ISS orbits around the Earth. But before viewers see any more of the mystery object, the video is cut.
A message flashes across the scene, saying: “The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station.” The clip was posted by alien enthusiast Streetcap1, who titled it: “Massive Golden UFO orbiting Earth.” He went on to write: “I thought I was seeing things at first then quickly started recording.

Iran Threatens U.S. Navy Ships Amid Massive War Drills
Iranian military leaders claimed Monday that they threatened two American-led vessels in international waters amid a series of new war drills being carried out by the Islamic Republic, according to regional reports and U.S. military officials who confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon contact with the Iranian vessels. As Iran carries out a several days long series of war drills in the Sea of Oman, off the country’s southern border, military leaders claim to have warned off at least two vessels led by U.S.
coalition forces in the region. U.S. military officials confirmed being in contact with Iranian forces, which is just the latest in a series of provocative interactions between the Iranian military and United States. “One U.S. warship operating in the Gulf of Oman received a transmission from Iranian maritime forces announcing an Iranian exercise,” Cmdr. William Urban, a spokesman for U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, told the Free Beacon Monday evening.

CIA Boss Hints At Preemptive Strike On North Korea…

CIA Boss Hints At Preemptive Strike On North Korea…
The Central Intelligence Agency is briefing President Donald Trump on the risks and opportunities of a limited attack on North Korea, its director revealed on Tuesday.  CIA Director Mike Pompeo would not discuss the “wisdom of a preemptive strike” on Pyongyang or its nuclear weapons program, he told an audience at the conservative American Enterprise Institute. But in rare public remarks, Pompeo portrayed North Korea as an urgent priority for the agency, and disclosed aspects of its role in setting back Kim Jong Un’s nuclear program during his first year at Langley.
Kim is a rational man, Pompeo said the CIA had assessed. But it’s less clear that Kim takes seriously the prospect of a U.S. attack, something that could blunder the world into a devastating nuclear conflict. Pompeo would not answer if options exist for Trump to attack North Korea short of a nuclear war. Analysts warn a limited strike would lead to such a war should North Korea retaliate and prompt escalation. He indicated instead the administration was developing a range of options spanning from diplomacy to war, so Trump will not face a binary choice between inaction and potential nuclear devastation.

PROPHECY WATCH: Will Turkish Invasion of Syria Bring About Pre-Messianic Conflict With Russia?

PROPHECY WATCH: Will Turkish Invasion of Syria Bring About Pre-Messianic Conflict With Russia?
Turkey launched a military incursion into neighboring Syria over the weekend, bringing Russian and Turkish soldiers into closer proximity in an already volatile region, making a 200-year-old prophecy of pre-Messianic conflict between Russia and Turkey appear to be closer than ever before. This 200-year-old prophecy was a closely guarded secret until just a few years ago and details described in the prophecy are strongly consistent with the situation developing to the North of Israel. A massive Turkish ground force crossed into the Afrin region of Syria to fight the Kurdish militia and push them out of Syria. The Turkish government claims their goal is to establish a 19-mile buffer zone against the Kurdistan Workers
Party (PKK), a militant group based in Syria. If the conflict intensifies, it could pit Turkey directly against Russia, which has boosted its military presence and bases in Syria in an effort to support the Syrian government in the country’s nearly seven-year-long civil war. A conflict between Turkey and Russia was predicted over 200 years ago by Rabbi Elijah ben Solomon Zalman, known as the Vilna Gaon, one of the greatest Jewish scholars of the 18th century who was also a known Kabbalist (mystic). Just before his death, the Vilna Gaon made a two-part prophecy that was kept secret, transferred orally from teacher to student for generations.

Fears grow for Mount St Helens volcano eruption after 8.2 quake in Alaska
The 8.2 magnitude earthquake that has triggered tsunami warnings off the coast of Alaska has sparked fears it could awaken America’s most deadly volcano Mount St Helens, with the 8,363ft mountain’s threat level at “very high” as shockwaves rattle the northwest states. The volcano in Washington state left 57 people dead and leveled 250 homes when a 5.1 magnitude earthquake caused it to erupt in 1980. An
avalanche of debris crashed down the mountain and reduced its height by 1314ft. The trail of destruction brought down 47 bridges and wiped out 15miles of railways and 185miles of a highway. Between 2004 and 2008 it was classed as being in a state of eruption as it continuously released magma.  And it is now feared the volcano could erupt again in the wake of this morning’s powerful earthquake off the coast of Alaska.

CUP OF TREMBLING: EU promises to back Abbas’ demand for Jerusalem
The European Union pledged its support Monday for Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas’ vision of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. On Monday, PA chairman Abbas met with European Union Foreign Affairs High Representative Federica Mogherini in the EU capital in Brussels, in a bid by the PA leader to win recognition for Palestinian statehood from the 28-member European body. The trip, which coincides with Vice President Mike Pence’s three-day visit to Israel, is part of a larger effort to circumvent the US, the traditional broker of PA-Israel negotiations, and push to take a more active role in the Middle East. On Sunday, the PA’s foreign affairs chief Riyad Al-Maliki told AFP that the “rules of the game” had been fundamentally altered by President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. “Since Trump’s decision has altered the rules of the game, he (Abbas) expects the European foreign ministers to come forward and collectively recognize the state of Palestine as a way to respond back to Trump’s decision,” Maliki said.

Future pandemic could kill millions as virus mutates
A future influenza pandemic could kill millions of people the World Health Organisation has warned – a century on from the Spanish flu outbreak which did just that. The NHS has been struggling to cope with the added burden posed by this winter’s Australian flu outbreak, and other countries, including the United States, France and China are facing similar problems as a WHO spokesman said worse could be around the corner.
He said: “In North America Influenza-like Illness (ILI) levels are similar to those seen in 2014-2015 season, which was the most severe season in recent years, and influenza A (H3N2) is the main circulating virus. “In some Western European countries, hospitalization rates have already reached high levels. It is difficult to predict when the influenza activity will peak or if it has already peaked.” To further complicate matters, different strains of the virus were impacting in different countries, he explained.

Alaska earthquake sparks fears for countries along Ring of Fire
Earthquakes in Alaska, Indonesia and Hawaii and volcanoes in Japan and the Philippines have sparked panic across the Pacific Ring of Fire today, with volcanically and geologically active areas on alert.  A huge 7.9 earthquake struck off the coast of Alaska early this morning, sparking tsunami warnings and watches along the entire west coast of Canada, the United States and parts of Mexico. Indonesia was rocked by a 5.3 quake, with at least 130 buildings damaged and several people injured, while thousands of people were evacuated from areas surrounding volcanoes in Japan and the Philippines.
One person died in Japan as the Kusatsu-Shirane volcano triggered an avalanche at a ski resort. The victim was a soldier training in the area when the volcano erupted. It is unknown whether he was killed in the avalanche or after being hit by large rocks which shot out of the volcano, which seriously injured five others. The volatility on the Pacific Ring of Fire today has increased fears for the Big One: a major earthquake in a highly-populated area on the US west coast.

The Evidence of a Spiritual Realm is All Around Us!
Testimonies of supernatural healings, demonic encounters, angelic encounters and many different spiritual experiences by generations of people all over the world speak of a reality/realm that exists beyond the physical. Especially when it comes to ghosts, hauntings, séances, tarot cards, Ouija boards, crystal balls…etc. We are continuously fed with information about the spirit world from newspapers, TV, radio and movies. Try searching on google for the “Top 10 Grossing Pictures or Fictional Books”, and it is almost guaranteed that a number of them will deal with the topic of the spirit world. “Channelers” are
people who claim to communicate with the dead, and are now featuring in TV programs that are becoming increasingly more popular. You may have seen TV shows similar to “Ghost Hunters,” where paranormal investigators scientifically investigate ghosts. They find some startling results from their investigations, such as voices recorded on tape recorders which were not originally heard by anyone, objects being moved, even the occasional “apparition,” either a shadow, a strange figure, etc. You may have heard that ghosts acting like people of the past are really just demons who are pretending to be in order to trick humans. People have tried to (or claimed to) communicate with spirits for ages.

Volcano in Japan erupts after 35 years of calm, Leaves one dead and 18 injured
A sudden eruption took place at Kusatsu-Shirane volcano (Kusatsu-Shiranesan) in Japan early Tuesday, January 23, 2018, causing an avalanche that left one member of Japan’s Self-Defense Forces (SDF) dead and 6 injured. At least 11 people were injured by falling volcanic rocks. It was the first eruption of this volcano since 1983. The volcano, located near a ski resort in Gunma prefecture, erupted at 01:59 UTC on Tuesday (09:59 local time), spawning an avalanche that buried 6 soldiers and killed one, officials said. All 7 were transported to a hospital where one was later confirmed dead. SDF said at the time that the
soldiers were training in the area when the volcano erupted and that they are trying to rescue about 80 people who were visiting the ski resort and evacuated to a ropeway station at the peak. Falling volcanic rocks injured 11 people, local police said. At least 5 of them were injured after the stones hit a gondola lift, shattering its windows. The injured were treated at a rest house. Observations by the Tokyo Institute of Technology have confirmed volcanic rocks about 1 km (0.62 miles) from the crater near Kagamiike pond, on Motoshirane peak. Some of the stones appeared to be 10 – 20 cm (3.9 – 7.8 inches) in size.

Self-Driving Cars Will Leave “Third of Population Jobless”
Vehicles that transport people using artificial intelligence are on course to become a frequent sight on our roads.  But if they are thrust into the mass market and prove popular, an expert has warned they will wreak havoc on the global economy. Professor in Computer Engineering, Dr Subhash Kak, believes a third of jobs will be lost soon after their introduction. It comes after his bombshell prediction, given to this website, that AI will “sink the world into unemployed despair” in a hellish “dystopia”, because humans will be put out of work.
And now he has revealed self-driving vehicles are going to accelerate that process at a terrifying speed. Asked how close we are to humans being replaced in the workplace, Dr Kak exclusively told Daily Star Online: “I think we are nearly there. “For example, it has been estimated that one-third of the people in any advanced economy are engaged in transportation. “Their jobs will be gone as soon as self-driving cars are widely adopted.

As Flu Deaths Rise, Churches Change Their Rules

As Flu Deaths Rise, Churches Change Their Rules
As health departments in nearly every state are reporting spikes in flu deaths among all age groups, the Catholic church isn’t taking any chances. They’re issuing new guidelines governing behavior at services in an effort to reduce the number of potentially dangerous germs being passed from person to person. In New Mexico, where nearly 50 people have died from the flu, The Archdiocese of Santa Fe sent a letter to churches statewide discouraging parishioners from shaking hands, holding hands during prayers and sharing a goblet for Communion.
Church members seem to think it’s a good idea, under the circumstances. “Well, I never liked holding hands at church to start with,” Jim Allen told KOAT. “I don’t believe it’s breaking any sacred traditions. If you want to receive Christ, I think He can do all things,” said “Susan,” another member. On the other side of the country, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland, Maine has also instituted precautions to stop the flu from spreading. Their notice reads, “all ministers of Holy Communion must sanitize their hands before and after distributing Holy Communion.

Russian Spy Ship Spotted off North Carolina Coast…
The Russian spy ship, the Viktor Leonov, was spotted 100 miles south-east of Wilmington, North Carolina, in international waters, according to a US military official, just days after the vessel was seen leaving the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, Port of Spain. Two US military officials said the Russian ship is being tracked by the destroyer USS Cole and other naval assets.
Outfitted with a variety of high-tech spy equipment and designed to intercept communications signals, the Viktor Leonov was observed operating in the Caribbean last week, a US defense official told CNN.
It was unclear at the time where the vessel was heading, but the official said the spy ship has typically traveled up the eastern seaboard near Cape Canaveral, King’s Bay, Norfolk and New London in the past.
All these locations are home to US naval installations.

Pence says U.S. Embassy will move to Jerusalem by end of 2019
The U.S. embassy in Israel will move to Jerusalem by the end of 2019, Vice President Mike Pence said on Monday. “In the weeks ahead, our administration will advance its plan to open the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem — and that United States Embassy will open before the end of next year,” Pence said in a speech to the Israeli parliament in Jerusalem. “Jerusalem is Israel’s capital — and, as such, President
Trump has directed the State Department to begin initial preparations to move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” said Pence, explaining the decision. He did not give an exact date. The main Arab party in the Israeli parliament protested during his remarks after saying earlier that it will boycott the speech. The lawmakers stood up while the vice president spoke and waved signs before they were removed by security. Ayman Odeh, leader of the Joint Arab List, said it was the party’s democratic right to boycott the speech.

Texas Judge Says God Told Him Suspected Sex Trafficker Was Not Guilty

Texas Judge Says God Told Him Suspected Sex Trafficker Was Not Guilty
A judge in Comal County, Texas, could face disciplinary action after he was accused of trying to influence a trial by telling jurors that God told him a woman accused of trafficking her teenage niece was innocent. “I apologize to you folks but when God tells me I gotta do something, I gotta do it,” Judge Jack Robison reportedly told jurors about the case of 32-year-old Gloria E. Romero-Perez after trying to convince them that the Lord had vouched for her innocence, according to the Herald Zeitung.
Romero-Perez was accused in 2016 of selling her then 15-year-old niece to a man the teen met at a local church for $6,000. She allegedly paid for her niece to be smuggled into the U.S. from Honduras then sold her to Julio Amilcar Jimenez-Ramirez, 34, who was also arrested. Local police got involved with the case after Romero-Perez reported her niece had run away.

Perry Stone Ministries Announce Launch of International School of the Word (ISOW)

Perry Stone Ministries Announce Launch of International School of the Word (ISOW)
Perry Stone Ministries of Cleveland, TN, is excited to announce the launch of International School of the Word (ISOW), an affordable online Bible College whose primary purpose is to Connect the Word with the World. For many, receiving a biblical education is cost prohibitive, leaving students with loan debt or struggling to finish school. With this understanding, Perry Stone and Dr. Bryan Cutshall have developed an institution that provides sound theology, good doctrine, and practical teaching at a reasonable cost.

ISOW’s certificate courses have been set at $60-$150 per course, depending on the amount of content. ISOW believes a sound biblical education should not come at a high cost or weigh down countless hours of time. A person of any age or financial status should be able to seek knowledge about the Bible. 

While traditional online courses for biblical studies can require 17 hours or more a week, ISOW offers a wide variety of course content that allows students to study how they choose and when they choose. For the Certificate Program, there are no limits to the time a person may take in completing a course. If a student decides to take a few months between each course or take courses back-to-back, ISOW offers flexibility.  With video courses, expository studies, and reading curriculum, students can engage in whatever way works best for them.

ISOW’s cutting-edge teaching style is geared toward the technology-driven, fast-paced culture in which we live. Students will be able to choose subjects à la carte and watch dynamic teaching from qualified professors, largely uninhibited by prerequisites, core subjects, or large weekly time commitments. 

ISOW also understands that some people wish to pursue the traditional path of earning an Associate or Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies. Therefore, ISOW is partnering with another Christian College and will be offering accredited courses later this year.  For more information and to register for Certificate courses, visit www.isow.org or call the ISOW office at 423-641-8367.


FALLING AWAY: The Atheist Minister & The Congregation That Supports Her

FALLING AWAY: The Atheist Minister & The Congregation That Supports Her
One would assume believing in God would be a prerequisite for any person who calls themself a minister. However, at least in the case of self-proclaimed atheist Reverend Gretta Vosper, this requirement has become more of a suggestion. Read on to learn more about this atheist minister and the congregation that supports her: Reverend Gretta Vosper is a Canadian minister at West Hill United Church of Canada in Scarborough. She calls herself an atheist but doesn’t believe that fact should disqualify her from serving as a minister. Instead of a supernatural God, Vosper preaches about kindness, love and the human connection.
Vosper has been an outspoken voice within the movement towards downplaying the Bible and Jesus in the United Church. Under the guidance of Vosper, West Hill moved further and further away from traditional values. Spokesperson Andrea DiPede explains: “We have moved away from language that references God in order to create an environment without barriers to participation. The services are themed around love, justice, compassion, care, responsibility and living in a right relationship with ourselves.”

Is The Shroud of Turin Evidence of Jesus’ Resurrection?
Jan 22, 2018 | 0  |     
Is The Shroud of Turin Evidence of Jesus’ Resurrection?
“Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.” (Matthew 27:58-60)
The Shroud of Turin is an ancient, sepia-colored, rectangular, 14.3 x 3.7 foot linen cloth woven in a three-to-one herringbone twill composed of flax fibrils with the front and the back image of a naked man with his hands folded across his groin on it. It is considered to be the linen cloth the dead Jesus was wrapped in after He was crucified. Some have concluded it is the true burial shroud of Jesus. Others have pronounced it a medieval forgery. In my opinion, the evidence completely disproves it being a medieval forgery…
1. A set of tests conducted on the Shroud place the cloth to the time ranging from 300 B.C. to 400 A.D., well within the time of Jesus of Nazareth (Stanglin, USA Today, 2013).
2. The bloodstains, as forensic scientists and chemists now know, were created by real blood, specifically blood of a torture victim. In addition to that, an x-ray-taken showed excess iron in blood areas, as expected for blood. Microchemical tests for proteins were positive in blood areas but not in any other parts of the Shroud. Furthermore, claims are that the blood has been confirmed as authentic hemoglobin and identified as Type AB!

UPDATE: Turkish Army extends Syria operation to Azaz district, East of Afrin
Turkish armed forces have advanced into the Azaz district of Syria, east of the Afrin region, state Anadolu agency reported. This comes as Operation Olive Branch against Kurdish forces enters its third day. The Turkish military have thus continued their operation’s ground phase, which began on Sunday. Ankara said 153 targets were struck as of Sunday evening, including units of Kurdish forces and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).
President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday that Turkey would not take a step back from the operation in the Afrin region. He also said that Ankara had an agreement with Russia regarding its military operation against a US-backed Kurdish militia. Speaking in Ankara, Erdogan stressed that he wants to support the national security and territorial integrity of Syria as Turkey “has no designs on territories of another country.”

Two IEDs detonated at Florida mall, No injuries reported.
Two improvised explosive devices (IEDs) went off at Eagle Ridge Mall on Sunday night. Lake Wales fire crews responded to an alarm call at 451 Eagle Ridge Drive around 5:30 p.m. While en route, the call was changed to a structure fire. When fire crews arrived at the location, they saw smoke coming from a corridor located next to the mall entrance of JC Penney. The fire department located two pipe bomb type devices that ignited in the corridor of the building. They also located a backpack in the same corridor with other possible improvised explosive devices in it.
No one was injured as a result of the explosion, but the ceiling and corridor wall did sustain damage. At 5:30 p.m. the Lake Wales Police Department responded to begin a criminal investigation. The mall was evacuated. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the State Fire Marshall, and the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad all responded to assist in the investigation.

This Dangerous Habit Can Sabotage Your Spiritual Blessings

This Dangerous Habit Can Sabotage Your Spiritual Blessings
(By Rebecca Mcinnis) As I was preparing for work one morning, I dropped a hand mirror, and it went crashing to the floor. The pieces were everywhere. When I stooped down to pick them up, the phrase “seven years” immediately went through my head. Now, I’m not a person who believes in luck, good or bad. The phrase probably came to mind because it’s one I’ve heard all my life—”seven years of bad luck.” But instead of finishing it, I heard a still small voice say, “Don’t look back,” then “Press on!” I knew that sweet voice was the voice of the Lord.
I also knew exactly what He was saying to me. Unless you are looking into a mirror that is large enough to see only a small part of your face, you can normally see only your reflection, looking ahead, but also what is behind you. If you focus on the things behind, even though you’re facing the other direction, you are no longer looking forward. I had been going through a very difficult time in my life and still wanted to hold on to some things that were virtually gone. The Father was telling me that it was time to let them all go, to mark the date, to build an altar, if you will. He showed me that looking back is very dangerous.

What’s The Connection Between the Biblical Esau and President Trump?
Jan 21, 2018 | 0  |     
What’s The Connection Between the Biblical Esau and President Trump?
President Donald Trump is a reincarnation of the Biblical Esau, son of Isaac and Rebecca, according to Torah scholar and international speaker Rabbi Mendel Kessin.  Earlier this week, in a talk in Jerusalem that lasted well over two hours, Rabbi Kessin laid out his Bible-based case that Trump has a singular role to play in preparing the world for redemption. He did not claim that Trump is the Messiah, though Rabbi Kessin said, “Trump is a messianic figure,” meaning he is connected to the process of moving redemption forward.
Rabbi Kessin began his talk by quoting the verse from the Bible that speaks about the two nations that Rebecca had in her womb. One was Jacob, who, through his 12 sons, was the ancestor of the Jewish people.  The other nation in Rebecca’s womb came from Esau, who, as Rabbi Kessin explains, “became Edom, which became Rome, which became Christianity, which became Western civilization.” In Genesis 25:23, it is written, “And the older shall serve the younger.” The older is a reference to Esau and the younger to Yaakov. Though they were twins, Esau emerged first, as is plainly stated in Genesis.

Jordan’s king says EAST Jerusalem must be capital of Palestinian state…
Jordan’s King Abdullah told U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday he looked to Washington to rebuild “trust and confidence” in moving toward a two-state solution in Israel after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the country’s capital.  With Pence sitting across from him in the royal palace, King Abdullah said Jordan viewed the Israel-Palestinian conflict as a “potential major source of instability”.
He said he had raised his concerns for some time that such a decision on Jerusalem “does not come as a result of a comprehensive settlement to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict”. He also reiterated that East Jerusalem should be the capital of a future Palestinian state. “We hope that the U.S. will reach out and find the right way to move forward in these challenging circumstances,” the king said.

Turkey Invades Syria – Tanks and Soldiers Cross the Border
Turkish military forces are invading Syria after pounding the war-torn country with airstrikes.  Forces entered the country’s Afrin province today just 24 hours after pounding the region with airstrikes. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim reportedly said they are targeting US-backed Kurdish fighters. Shocking pictures show dozens of tanks and armored vehicles crossing over the border in a terrifying display of military might.
But the Syrian-Kurdish YPG militia has denied there is a full-scale invasion underway, claiming forces clashed in Afrin but Turkish soldiers were beaten back. YPG official, Nouri Mahmoudi, said “all the Turkish military’s ground attacks against Afrin have been repelled so far and they have been forced to retreat.” A statement from the militia said: “Our people are holding on to their land and do not accept surrender… we repeat our determination to protect our people in Afrin against the attacks.” READ MORE https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/world-news/675778/turkey-syria-military-airstrikes-kurdish-fighters-afrin-province-united-states

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: Rare Super Blood Moon Eclipse To Be Seen On January 31st

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: Rare Super Blood Moon Eclipse To Be Seen On January 31st
Blood moons and eclipses have come and gone. But the signs of the times are getting more ominous than ever.  As if the total solar eclipse last August and the “blood moons” of 2014 and 2015 weren’t enough, there will be a “super blue blood moon eclipse” on Jan. 31 – something that hasn’t happened for 150 years. And this rare event could herald war and turbulence on earth, according to a leading researcher of astronomical signs and how they interact with Scripture.
Rather than just looking skyward, Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, the man who discovered the “Blood Moons” phenomenon, says people need to be looking to their Bibles.“Many people seem to be overlooking the real importance of this event,” Biltz told WND. “The ‘supermoon’ which takes place on January 31 is what is termed a ‘blue moon,’ because it is the second full moon in one month. It’s also going to be a total lunar eclipse, making it a ‘blood moon’ as well. This is the first time there’s been a total eclipse for a blue moon in 150 years, which makes it remarkable enough.

Apocalyptic Dust Storm Envelops Parts of MidEast, Turning Sky Blood Red
Heavy dust storm engulfed parts of Turkey, Iraq, and Syria on January 19, 2018, turning the sky into dark red. Over the next 72 hours, the dust cloud is expected to sweep Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan, but with decreasing concentrations. Heavy dust storm coming from Syria and Iraq has enveloped Turkey’s southeast on January 19, 2018, reducing visibility and air quality.
The most affected were southeastern provinces of Diyarbakir, of Diyarbakır, Şırnak, Mardin, Şanlıurfa, and Batman, with Mardin the worst affected. Dust accompanied by muddy rain engulfed the area into darkness, forcing Mardin authorities to give differently-abled, unwell, and pregnant women in public offices a day’s leave from work, according to the Daily Sabah.

More than 34,000 evacuated from Mayon volcano, Alert Level remains at 3
Mayon volcano entered a new eruptive phase on January 13, 2018 with phreatic eruptions and lava flows from a new lava dome. It was the first eruption of this volcano since August 2014. Alert Level was raised from 1 to 3 and by January 17, more than 34,000 people living around the volcano were evacuated. The current exclusion zone includes a Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) that extends in a 6-kilometer (3.7 km) radius around the volcano and an Extended Danger Zone
(EDZ) that extends 7 km (4.3 miles) on the southern flanks of the volcano, due to higher hazard in this area. So far, more than 34,000 people have been evacuated, although some of them come back from time to time to check on their homes. Lava flows were first observed on the southern slopes on January 14, followed by two lava collapse events producing rockfalls and pyroclastic density currents as well as degassing events which sent ash plumes SW and WSW of the volcano on January 15.

Cape Town could be first major city in the world to run out of water

Cape Town could be first major city in the world to run out of water
Cape Town and the surrounding region of South Africa are suffering from a severe drought. Three years of low rain levels and an unseasonably dry winter mean that average dam levels are just over a quarter full. The metro area of 3.7 million has less than 90 days’ worth of water in its reservoirs, making it the first major city in the world that could run out of water. Cape Town residents and visitors can only use 13 gallons of water per day starting in February.
For those who consume more, the city’s water utility will charge a special levy that is three times higher than the current rate. The average American uses 88 gallons of water per day, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Residents here are awaiting “Day Zero,” when water supplies in Cape Town’s reservoirs drop below 13.5%. Mayor Patricia de Lille estimated recently that the day will likely be April 21. Low rainfall and high consumption, despite the city’s best efforts to promote conservation, are taking their toll, she said.

Kenneth Copeland Acquires New Gulfstream V Jet, Seeks $19.5M for Upgrades and Maintenance
Thanks to the support of his deep-pocketed partners, Texas-based televangelist Kenneth Copeland of Kenneth Copeland Ministries has acquired a new multimillion-dollar Gulfstream V jet that he says will help him do the Lord’s work and help him avoid having to contend with “demons” that travel on commercial airlines.  Copeland’s ministry announced last Friday the acquisition of the “debt free” jet, which hit the market with a $36 million price tag in 1998. The ultra-long-range business jet can

accommodate up to four crew members and 14 passengers in an executive configuration, according to Gulfstream. It is unclear how much Copeland’s ministry paid for the jet but AV Buyer says they currently have the lowest priced Gulfstream V on the market priced at just under $6 million. “Father we thank you so and I’m asking you now sir, according to your word, bless our partners beyond measure. Yes, in the name of Jesus. For you said in 2002, ‘I’m sending you new partners who are very strong financially and they will obey me. And I will increase your longtime partners and they will obey me,” Copeland, 81, said in a prayer of thanksgiving for the new jet.

Near-Death Experience in Hell, Man Saw Christians Who Refused to Forgive
Alec Rex was driving down a busy street in Adelaide, Australia on February 15, 2016 when he suffered a massive heart attack and his heart stopped. He slumped forward on the steering wheel, traffic stopped around him, and a woman came rushing over to his car. “She opened the door and tried to get me out but I was in a seatbelt,” Alec recalls. As she struggled to free him, she forgot to turn off the ignition and the car began moving forward. “The car took off and got up to about 30 miles per hour. She was still hanging on to the car.”
When she saw they were going to hit another vehicle, she let go and fell headlong to the pavement. “It was a miracle she wasn’t killed. She hit the ground and saw me hit the vehicle. She pulled herself together and ran 100 yards.” The young woman was a corrections officer who just left her shift. When she started CPR she was certain Alec was dead. Providentially, an ambulance was among the vehicles caught in the traffic jam. “A couple doctors raced over and started working on me. In the police report it says they resuscitated me five times.

Strong 6.5 Quake strikes off coast of Loreto, Mexico, Fears of “Big One” striking Gulf of California.

Strong 6.5 Quake strikes off coast of Loreto, Mexico, Fears of “Big One” striking Gulf of California.
A 6.5 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Loreto in Mexico amid fears of the Big One striking in the Gulf of California. The epicenter of the quake, which struck at about 10 am local time (4pm UK time), was 6.2 miles (10km) below the surface. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has not yet issued a tsunami warning for the West Coast of the US. The news comes amid heightened fears of California being rocked by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake or greater, known as the ‘Big One’.
California sits on top of the potentially catastrophic San Andreas Fault, one of the most seismically active regions in the world. The Southern California Earthquake Center last year warned small earthquakes along the faultline could trigger a larger one in the future. Professor Thomas Jordan said: “Any time there is significant seismic activity in the vicinity of the San Andreas Fault, we seismologists get nervous.

Major Faith Leaders Ready for Spiritual War Against Abortion

Major Faith Leaders Ready for Spiritual War Against Abortion
Washington D.C. will be abuzz today with generations taking up the charge against abortion. Not only will thousands gather for the March for Life, the House will vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act. For faith activist Janet Porter, the bill is not enough. She’s encouraging Congress to pass the heartbeat bill, as well. “The time to end abortion is now because we have a bill before Congress has more pro-life support than any other pro-life bill,” Porter tells Charisma News. The born alive bill does not prevent abortion but would prohibit doctors from killing a baby who survived an abortion the first time.
On the other hand, Porter says the heartbeat bill has 170 cosponsors and a majority of congressional support. Seven out of 10 voters in America favor the bill, according to a 2017 George Barna Study “There is no reason to wait [to pass the heartbeat bill],” Porter says. “It’s supported by Americans and just makes sense. A heartbeat is life. We check for a pulse [when someone is hurt] because the heartbeat is an indicator of life. That’s the message.”

Flu May Be Spread By Simply Breathing
Until now, most people thought you caught the flu after being exposed to droplets from an infected person’s coughs or sneezes, or by touching contaminated surfaces.  But a study released Thursday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals that we may pass the flu to others just by breathing. The study — which included researchers who are now working at San Jose State University and UC Berkeley — offers new evidence on the importance of the flu’s airborne qualities and how it can easily be transmitted to others.
Researchers found large quantities of infectious viruses in the breath exhaled by those suffering from the flu. “The study findings suggest that keeping surfaces clean, washing our hands all the time, and avoiding people who are coughing does not provide complete protection from getting the flu,” Sheryl Ehrman, who is now dean of the College of Engineering at San Jose State University, said in a statement. “Staying home and out of public spaces could make a difference in the spread of the influenza virus.” READ MORE http://endtimeheadlines.org/2018/01/flu-may-be-spread-by-simply-breathing/


Franklin Graham Warns ‘Darkness Is Spreading,’ ‘Forces of Evil’ Working to Destroy Moral Society

Franklin Graham Warns ‘Darkness Is Spreading,’ ‘Forces of Evil’ Working to Destroy Moral Society
Evangelical leader Franklin Graham, son of Pastor Billy Graham, said, “darkness is spreading rapidly” across the globe — the sins of pornography, sexual abuse, drugs, religious persecution — and that the “forces of evil are” are doing all they can to “destroy the foundations of a morally healthy society.” He added that the light of Truth, which is Jesus Christ, will dispel the darkness but believers need to help spread this truth in their everyday lives.

“It’s our responsibility as believers to let our light shine before men, and to honor and glorify God by our good works and godly life, regardless of how evil the culture has become,” said Rev. Graham in his January commentary in Decision magazine, which is published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). “The darkness is spreading—rapidly,” said Graham. There have been numerous reports of widespread sexual harassment and abuse, he said, “and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.”

An Iranian convert to Christianity who is now an ordained minister in the Church of Sweden says she has helped bring nearly 1,500 Muslims to Christ over the past five years. Annahita Parsan told Fox News in a report on Wednesday that her life, which has undergone huge tribulations, is “completely different since coming to Jesus.” The minister said she was raised in a Muslim home in Iran and married at 16, though a couple of years later her husband was killed in a car accident. She had to fight for custody for her son,
which she successfully won, and two years later was re-married to a man whose wife had died. Her second husband started beating her son, and although she wanted a divorce it was impossible for her to do because she was pregnant with a second child. Parsan, her daughter, and the rest of the family fled as refugees in 1984 in the wake of the Iran-Iraq conflict, but met great hardships, including spending a month in prison in Turkey because they did not have identification papers or passports.

Money has completely dried up in Venezuela

Money has completely dried up in Venezuela
Four hours. Four banks. Six cents. This was a typical day in Caracas, Venezuela, capital of the world’s most miserable economy. In most of the world, getting a little money out of the bank is an errand, something forgettable. In Venezuela, for millions of people, it is complicated, tedious and surreal, or just impossible. I moved here a year and a half ago to cover the country’s economic crisis as a freelance
journalist. I knew how bad things were, but I never imagined the constant daily struggle to achieve even the simplest of tasks. As Venezuela has sunk to new depths, prices have skyrocketed, and the currency, the bolivar, has become next to worthless. Supermarkets and banks have become scenes of confusion and chaos: Are they open? Do they have money or food? How much can I get?

Could We See A 1929 Stock Market Crash In 2018?

Could We See A 1929 Stock Market Crash In 2018?
As U.S. stocks continue soaring to record high after record high, investors anticipating an inevitable plunge have yet another cause for sleepless nights. The CAPE ratio, a measure of stock valuations devised by Nobel Laureate economist Robert Shiller of Yale University, is now at a higher level than it was before the Great Crash of 1929, the Financial Times reports, adding that the only time the CAPE was even higher preceded the dotcom crash of 2000-02. However, the FT notes, there are some differences between 1929 and 2018 that make the CAPE parallel less terrifying for investors.
From their previous bear market lows reached in intraday trading on March 6, 2009, through their closing values on January 12, 2018, the S&P 500 Index (SPX) has gained 318% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has advanced 299%. Regarding the CAPE valuation analysis, there are several key limitations. According to investment manager Rob Arnott, the founder, chairman and CEO of Research Associates, CAPE has been on an upward trend over time.

Did the Biblical Prophet Zechariah Predict the Current Bleeding-Eye Pandemic in Uganda?

Did the Biblical Prophet Zechariah Predict the Current Bleeding-Eye Pandemic in Uganda?
A current Ugandan outbreak of viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF) and an ancient outbreak among the Aztecs 500 years ago may both have been described in prophecy as being the result of conflict surrounding Jerusalem. Uganda’s health ministry announced on Monday that it is deploying emergency response teams to prevent a recent outbreak of viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF) from turning into a raging pandemic.
The two different pandemics, one ancient and another current, have come to the media’s attention this week, identical in their common symptom of profuse bleeding from the eyes. Experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the disease has a 40 percent mortality rate, and they were monitoring for the possibility of an additional outbreak after reports of several cases displaying similar symptoms in South Sudan.

Michigan Meteor Was Seen In A Dream By Pastor A Month Before It Happened

Michigan Meteor Was Seen In A Dream By Pastor A Month Before It Happened
Around a month before a meteor exploded over Michigan, an evangelical pastor predicted that it was coming. “I had a dream that a meteor was coming to the Great Lakes, and it was gonna hit Michigan,” Pastor Rick Satterfield of the I Am Church said in a video from December 31, 2017. “It would cause Ohio and Canada to feel the impact of it.” On Tuesday, Satterfield’s prediction came true when lights flashed and a loud crash shook local buildings as a meteor tumbled to earth.
People reported seeing the meteor in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, and in Ontario. Satterfield later told local media that the meteor was a sign of positive things to come in the region. “It’s a great day—it’s a great time, it’s not gloom and doom. It’s a jubilee day,” he said, promising that the meteor was a harbinger of mental, physical and economic rejuvenation that would begin in Michigan and spread across the world.

Man develops Five-foot tapeworm after he ate sushi daily
Sushi lovers beware! A California man who ate sushi every day ended up with a 5-foot-plus long tapeworm inhabiting his body. The Fresno male went to the emergency room complaining of bloody diarrhea according to Dr. Kenny Bahn who shared the story of his patient on the podcast “This Won’t Hurt A Bit.”  The emergency room physician was initially skeptical when the man insisted to residents at Community Regional Medical Center,
“I really want to get treated for worms” until he saw for himself the disgusting proof.  “I take out a toilet paper roll, and wrapped around it of course is what looks like this giant, long tapeworm,” Bahn said on the podcast.  After being unraveled, the tapeworm ended up being 5-and-a-half feet long. Bahn recalled how the patient said he felt the worm “wiggling out” and felt like “his guts were coming out” as he sat on the toilet. He then, began to remove the worm, which started moving.

It’s Time to Purge the Prophetic of the Counterfeited Counterfeit
Jan 18, 2018 | 0  |     
It’s Time to Purge the Prophetic of the Counterfeited Counterfeit
(By Dawn Hill) As a young Christian, I remember driving by establishments featuring the words, “psychics” and “tarot cards” in glowing neon in windows and storefronts, and I remember, for lack of a better word, feeling agitated at the sight of these places. I was not agitated with the individuals operating in this realm so much as I was the very existence of this perversion of the prophetic. Looking back, I understand that my agitation was in large part a reaction to this counterfeit of the prophetic ministry, and it was tied to my calling as a prophetic voice.

Imagine my surprise and naivete when I discovered and continue to discover that this counterfeit realm operates among those who profess to know Jesus Christ, and sadly, many are deceived by darkness masquerading as light. I do not pretend to believe that this is a pleasant word. What is to follow is a difficult word, but it is an issue that must be addressed in the body of Christ, and my goal is to share the truth of the Word of God and the heart of the Father on the matter. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty, and we need Him to guide us into all truth (2 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:13).

In our current spiritual climate, there are many things occurring in the name of revival and Jesus Christ. Some things are within our comfort zone and understanding while other things really stretch us and challenge us. I do not pretend to have all the answers. However, when there are professed Christians taking tools utilized by the kingdom of darkness and morphing them into tools with a similar purpose but a different branding, that is a slippery slope racing to the finish line of witchcraft while preaching another Christ.

Why Would a Bible Translation Use the Word ‘Palestine’?
Jan 18, 2018 | 0  |     
Why Would a Bible Translation Use the Word ‘Palestine’?
(By Dr. Michael Brown) The New American Standard Bible (NASB) is one of the most widely used modern translations of the Bible. There is not the slightest hint that the translation is anti-Israel, let alone anti-Semitic. So, my question comes by way of interest and curiosity, not by way of indictment or accusation. Why would this fine translation introduce the word “Palestine” in its section headings? This would be similar to a history book carrying the caption, “Christopher Columbus discovers the United States.” Or, “The rule of Genghis Khan extends into the Soviet Union.”

Or, “T. E. Lawrence was famously known as ‘Lawrence of Saudi Arabia.’” All of these would be grossly anachronistic. Yet none of my examples are as anachronistic as what is consistently found in various editions of the NASB. This includes print editions (the one in front of me is printed by Cambridge University Press). It also includes various digital versions (Bible Gateway, Bible Hub, and the Laridian PocketBible, which is found in the Logos app). As a colleague (and long-time NASB reader) noted, in several places in the translation, “Palestine” appears in section headings.

Activist Mommy Calls Out Facebook for Double Standard after Receiving Death Threat
A conservative Christian blogger known as the Activist Mommy is calling out Facebook after the social media site said a group that threatened to burn her alive doesn’t violate its community standards. Elizabeth Johnston is the Activist Mommy and her conservative videos on subjects like marriage, sex, and abortion usually go viral. She recently voiced concerns to Facebook administrators about a private Facebook group that was titled, “I will find Activist Mommy and burn whoever runs it alive,” according to The Christian Post.
Facebook said they looked into the claim but didn’t see a problem. “We looked over the group you reported, and though it doesn’t go against one of our specific community standards, we understand that the group or something shared in may still be offensive to you and others,” Facebook wrote back to Johnston. Johnston posted Facebook’s response to her social media page and addressed what she believes to be a possible double standard.

Trump Warns ‘We Will Not Allow People of Faith to Be Targeted, Bullied or Silenced’
There’s been a big break for those who have any connection with health care who might have faced troubles because of moral or religious objections they had against something they were asked to do. They’ll have a big, powerful friend in the new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division set up by the federal government’s Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS’ Roger Severino, director of its Office of Civil Rights, said on a media call, “For too long governments big and small have treated conscience claims with hostility instead of protection. But change is coming and it begins here and now.”
He pointed back to one of President Trump’s major goals. “On May 4th, 2017, we reached a turning point in America,” Severino explained. “On that day, President Trump issued a religious liberty executive order and changed the course of the federal government on the issue of religious freedom.” He said of Trump, “He promised to vigorously enforce federal law and its robust protections of religious freedom. He said we’re a nation of tolerance, and he said we will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced.”

Poison control calls ‘spike’ due to online laundry pod challenge

Poison control calls ‘spike’ due to online laundry pod challenge
It used to be that washing your kid’s mouth out with soap was seen as a punishment. Now, authorities are trying to keep teens from doing just that. Teens have been increasingly biting into laundry pods, with some posting the videos online as part of a “challenge,” according to a statement Tuesday by the American Association of Poison Control Centers. The results can be potentially harmful or even deadly.
In the first 15 days of the new year, poison control centers received 39 such calls — the same number they received in all of 2016, the association said. In videos posted on YouTube and social media, people gag, cough and sometimes begin foaming at the mouth after biting into laundry pods.

“The ‘laundry packet challenge’ is neither funny nor without serious health implications,” Stephen Kaminski, the association’s CEO and executive director, said in a statement Tuesday. “We have seen a large spike in single-load laundry packet exposures among teenagers since these videos have been uploaded.” Poison control centers have handled over 50,000 calls about laundry packets over the past five years, the vast majority being accidents involving kids younger than 5 years old. But 13- to 19-year-olds have been responsible for more than 130 intentional exposures since 2016, according to the association.

Preparing The Way For The Mark Of The Beast? Bitcoin & Bible Prophecy

Preparing The Way For The Mark Of The Beast? Bitcoin & Bible Prophecy
2017 ended with Bitcoin making daily headlines. If you’re not familiar with Bitcoin, it’s a specific type of cryptocurrency (a secure digital currency). It made daily headlines mostly due to the mania surrounding its steep rise in price. Why are so many people euphoric about Bitcoin? Many think it will replace the U.S. dollar. They say it’s the future of money. Others say Bitcoin is worthless, and its price run-up is a bubble certain to burst. So which one is it?

Is Bitcoin the future or a passing fad? I don’t know. Time will tell. However, I do know this. Cryptocurrencies and electronic transactions will dominate the future. And many believe the technology behind Bitcoin will be the reason that happens. So what is this technology? It’s called blockchain, and many believe it’s the future of financial transactions. So what is blockchain? In simple terms, blockchain is a growing online record. Here’s a simplified example. Let’s say Citizen A agrees to buy a product from Citizen B using Bitcoin. When he does, the blockchain records the transfer of the Bitcoin from Citizen A to Citizen B

Revival or Persecution? Unmasking What Revelation Tells Us About the End Times
Jan 18, 2018 | 0  |     
Revival or Persecution? Unmasking What Revelation Tells Us About the End Times
(By Asher Intrater) One of the most precious promises in the Bible is Acts 2:17, that “In the last days it shall be,’ says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh” (Acts 2:17). We understand this to be a promise of a world-wide revival in the end times. (Yeshua also said that the “harvest is the end of the world” (Matt. 13:39). Some people do not believe in such a revival in the end times. They point to the prophecies about persecution and tribulation and the Antichrist in the end times and conclude (reasonably enough) that there could be no widespread revival.
So which is it? Revival or persecution? Victory or tribulation? The answer, of course, is both. There is a revival in the midst of persecution; victory in the midst of tribulation. One way to see this balance is by an overview of the book of Revelation. There we see a clear description of the evil empire of the Antichrist and the massive murder of true believers around the world (Rev. 12, 13, 15). On the other hand, there is no book in the Bible that teaches more about victory and overcoming. Every single one of the seven churches in Revelation 2-3 are enjoined to “overcome.” Presumably, this spiritual encouragement to be an overcomer is relevant to all of us as believers in Yeshua even today.

7 Crises That Threatened the Church’s Existence

7 Crises That Threatened the Church’s Existence
(By Joseph Mattera) As we read the first historical account of the early church found in the book of Acts, we are able to see a pattern of seven essential threats that could have wiped the church off the map! Interesting enough, these seven threats are still hazards to the contemporary church. The following are seven crises the church faced and how they overcame.
1. Outside Persecution – As we read in Chapters 3 and 4 in the book of Acts, the religious leaders warned the apostles not to preach any more in the name of Jesus. This threat had huge implications since it ostracized them both institutionally and socially from their friends and family in Jerusalem. Instead of quitting or fleeing, they prayed for boldness to be His witness in spite of the persecution (Acts 4:29). This serves as a lesson to the contemporary church. Instead of merely praying for persecution to stop—we should believe God to fill us with the Spirit of boldness to proclaim the truth in the midst of our adversaries.
2. Internal Compromise – When Satan saw that he could not stop the growing Jesus movement with outside persecution, he attempted to infiltrate and compromise the church from within. In Acts 5 (5:1-12) we read the account of how a married couple named Ananias and Sapphira lied to the apostles regarding the percentage of a property sale they were donating to the church. It seems they were attempting to leverage their resources for honor and prestige in the new Jesus movement. If successful, they would have set an erroneous standard of using pretense for church influence and power—which could have corrupted the foundation of the church and led to its early demise,

Arabic Classes Overtakes English and French in Sweden
Arabic language classes for adults are becoming increasingly popular in Sweden with a major adult education federation saying more students are now studying Arabic than English or French.
The Swedish educational association Folkuniversitetet, which focuses on language courses for adults and projects with an “international emphasis”, has seen a surge in the number of adults interested in learning
Arabic, Sveriges Radio reports. Anas Idlibi, who teaches Arabic at campuses in Kristianstad and Hässleholm, said that the number of Arabic classes has dramatically increased since he started teaching at the association. “I started two years ago with just one course and now we will get nine courses next semester,” Idlibi said.

Parents of Students at Middle School Concerned After State Survey Asks Children About Their ‘Sexual Orientation,’ ‘Gender Identity’
Some parents at a middle school in Missouri have expressed objection after a survey from the state Department of Mental Health asked students about their so-called “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.” The Missouri Student Survey, also known as the Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities Survey, is sent to schools every other year to understand the issues that students face, from bullying to drug use to suicide. Children grades 6-12 complete the survey,
and are informed that they may leave any questions blank that make them feel uncomfortable. This year, the survey also asked students about whether they consider themselves to be heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual or “other,” and if they identify as transgender. It stated that the questions were being asked to “better understand the health and healthcare needs of people with different sexual orientations.” “Do you consider yourself to be transgender?

Israel strikes Hezbollah weapons depot near Damascus
Israel carried out airstrikes at a military airport near Damascus Tuesday night, possibly hitting a weapons depot belonging to the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, according to unconfirmed Syrian opposition reports. There was no immediate reaction from official Syrian or Israeli sources. According to the reports, the airstrikes targeted the Mezzeh Military Airport southwest of Damascus. Last week the
Syrian military said that Israel had conducted airstrikes on a military base in the city of al-Qutayfah, outside Damascus, reportedly on a weapons depot containing long-range missiles. “We have a longstanding policy to prevent the transfer of game-changing weapons to Hezbollah in Syrian territory. This policy has not changed. We back it up, if necessary, with action,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last Tuesday at an event with NATO officials in Jerusalem.

Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana Removes Facebook Posts Citing Scripture Following Complaint

Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana Removes Facebook Posts Citing Scripture Following Complaint
A sheriff’s office in Louisiana has removed a number of Facebook posts citing Scripture or referencing Christianity in general after one of the nation’s most conspicuous atheist activist organizations asserted that the posts were unconstitutional. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter last year to Randy Seal, the sheriff of Washington Parish, after a “concerned local resident” contacted the organization to advise that Seal had been posting Scripture on the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
“The biblical command to love one’s mother is not a suggestion. It is a commandment that requires an unconditional love for our parents,” a June 1, 2017 post read in part. “Greater love hath no man that than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” Seal wrote on May 29, 2016, quoting from John 15:13. “God did not create people to be murdered by each other. He created us in the sacredness of each life that senseless violence against persons will cease. The only hope society has is the blessed hope given to us by God through His Son,” he also stated on September 14, 2015 in speaking about a prayer service that he held for Louisiana law enforcement following the deaths of nine officers. Seal quoted from Psalm 145:18, Philippians 4:6 and 2 Chronicles 7:14.

China’s Role in the Great Tribulation

China’s Role in the Great Tribulation
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the East might be prepared.” (Rev 16:12)
America’s role as the world’s only superpower is on the decline – which is to be expected since the US is absent from the Book of Revelation, and from Bible Prophecy. On the other hand, nations, such as Russia, Europe and China, are rising to power, replacing America’s status. The verse above (Rev 16:12), speaks of a time when, the “kings from the East” (whom many associate with China, and as some form of Chinese army, or Chinese-led coalition), will take advantage of the removal of a natural barrier and sweep westward to meet up with the forces of the Antichrist.
The “kings from the east” in Revelation chapter 16 verse 12 has been a silent topic for many years. However, this changed when the communist took-over China during World War II. Since then it has become clear that this largest of all countries in the world has a prophetic role, as you will soon find out. No longer is China content to stay within its vast borders, and live pretty much to itself, as it has been for almost five thousand years. Recent years have seen a dramatic rise in China’s power and influence. Napoleon once predicted that “when China wakes, it will shake the world.” That is exactly what is happening today. Here’s some recent statistics:

Geomagnetic storm to strike earth this Friday
ATTENTION: The following report does not reflect the personal views or opinions of ETH
A geomagnetic storm is expected to blast the Earth in three days time – a phenomenon that could bring entire globe to a standstill as banks, hospitals, and governments fail, it has been claimed. The storm, due to hit on Friday, January 19, is caused by gaseous material flowing from a hole in the sun’s atmosphere – ejecting a stream of solar wind. The G1-class storm is the mildest on the NOAA space weather scale, however, could still cause
“weak power grid fluctuations”, “minor impact on satellite operations” and effects on migratory animals. Skywatchers meanwhile cold catch a glimpse of beautiful lights in the sky, with auroras potentially visible in the evening. Geomagnetic storms are feared for their ability to affect electrical power across the world, with a G-5 category storm capable of widespread voltage control problems, protective system problems, the complete collapse of grid systems and damage to electrical transformers.

Scientists trying to create universal vaccine…
A century after one of history’s most catastrophic disease outbreaks, scientists are rethinking how to guard against another super-flu like the 1918 influenza that killed tens of millions as it swept the globe. There’s no way to predict what strain of the shape-shifting flu virus could trigger another pandemic or, given modern medical tools, how bad it might be. But researchers hope they’re finally closing in on stronger flu shots, ways to boost much-needed protection against ordinary winter influenza and guard against future pandemics at the same time.
“We have to do better and by better, we mean a universal flu vaccine. A vaccine that is going to protect you against essentially all, or most, strains of flu,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health. Labs around the country are hunting for a super-shot that could eliminate the annual fall vaccination in favor of one every five years or 10 years, or maybe, eventually, a childhood immunization that could last for life.

Trump Accuses Russia Helping North Korea Skirt Sanctions
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday Russia is helping North Korea get supplies in violation of international sanctions and that Pyongyang is getting “closer every day” to being able to deliver a long-range missile to the United States. “Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said during an Oval Office interview with Reuters. “What China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing.”
China and Russia both signed onto the latest rounds of United Nations Security Council sanctions against North Korea imposed last year. There was no immediate comment from the Russian embassy in Washington on Trump’s remarks.With North Korea persisting as the major global challenge facing Trump this year, the president cast doubt during the 53-minute interview on whether talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would be useful. In the past he has not ruled out direct talks with Kim.

Deadly Cold Weather shatters records in Louisiana and Mississippi…

Deadly Cold Weather shatters records in Louisiana and Mississippi…
A thin layer of snow and ice across the South closed highways, schools and government offices and sent cars sliding off the road Wednesday, while a blast of cold air broke records as far south as the Gulf Coast. Icicles hung from a statue of jazz musicians in normally balmy New Orleans, and drivers unaccustomed to ice spun their wheels across Atlanta, which was brought to a near-standstill. The beach in Biloxi, Mississippi, got a thin coating of snow.
The snowfall sabotaged the morning rush hour before it even began, sending cars crashing into each other in a swath of the U.S. with precious few snowplows. Officials urged people to stay off the roads if possible and to bundle up if they ventured outside. By midday, skies were bright and sunny, but temperatures were expected to remain below freezing throughout the day in much of the region, and roads were likely to remain icy into Thursday in some places.

Michigan Residents Shaken By Earthquake-Causing Meteor

Michigan Residents Shaken By Earthquake-Causing Meteor
Residents of southeast Michigan were left a bit shaken Tuesday night after a big bright flash lit up the sky and the ground beneath them shook. A flying saucer? No. A shooting star? Not quite. The National Weather Service eventually solved the mystery, tweeting “USGS confirms meteor occurred around 810 pm, causing a magnitude 2.0 earthquake.”
According to the United States Geological Survey, the earthquake was centered about five miles west-southwest of New Haven, Michigan, located about 40 miles northeast of Detroit. Initially though, as curious residents took to social media by droves to share videos of the dazzling display, the National Weather Service wasn’t so sure what these star-gazers had seen.

12 People Given Citations for ‘Sharing Food’ With the Homeless in California

12 People Given Citations for ‘Sharing Food’ With the Homeless in California
A group of people who were handing out food to the homeless community in the California town of El Cajon were arrested for their charitable actions. They were handing out food, clothes and toiletries on Sunday before police arrived and issued citations. The group was actively protesting against an emergency ordinance in the city of El Cajon which was introduced in response to California’s hepatitis A outbreak. Some of those in attendance were holding signs that read,

“feeding the hungry is not a crime” and “compassion not starvation.” Hepatitis A can be spread through the touching of contaminated foods or objects. California’s homeless community has been identified as the most susceptible to contracting the illness due to their lack of access to basic hygiene and sanitation facilities. The ordinance was passed in October last year, and authorities claim it is an essential element in battling the disease. But opponents disagree, arguing that it unfairly penalizes the city’s homeless people.

New Survey Says Adults Who Rarely or Never Attend Church More Likely to Cheat on Spouse

New Survey Says Adults Who Rarely or Never Attend Church More Likely to Cheat on Spouse
Adults who didn’t grow up in intact families and those who rarely or never attend religious services are more likely than others to have cheated on their spouse, according to a new study. The study, “Who Cheats More? The Demographics of Infidelity in America,” found that the rate of infidelity among those who attend a worship service at least once a week or several times a month or a year is 14 percent, as opposed to 19 percent among those who attend a religious service once a year or less.
A person’s political identity and family background are also related to whether or not they cheat, said the study released last week by Wendy Wang, director of research at the Institute for Family Studies. Fifteen percent of adults who grew up with both biological parents have cheated on their spouse before, compared with 18 percent of those who didn’t grow up in intact families, pointed out the study.

California Man Who Says He Was ‘Blind’ Without Christ Turns Himself in for Murder Committed 25 Years Ago

California Man Who Says He Was ‘Blind’ Without Christ Turns Himself in for Murder Committed 25 Years Ago
A California man walked into a local television station this week and also turned himself in to the police in confessing to a murder committed 25 years ago, as he said that his faith in God and the weight of living with the secret compelled him to do what was right. “God and Christ and these things that have happened over the course of 25 years have pushed me and pushed me to do the right thing,” Brian Hawkins, 44, told local television station KRCR.
“I know the wrong can’t be changed, but this is the closest I can come to doing the right thing.” According to the outlet, Hawkins appeared at the station this week and said that he wanted to confess to the murder of Frank McAlister, then 19, who was killed in 1993. Police believe that McAlister had been robbed, and during the course of the robbery, he was murdered and his body left in the woods. His car was found abandoned at a Costco parking lot with a “large amount of blood.”

Powerful 7.3 earthquake strikes off coast of Peru, Sparks tsunami warning: One dead, 20 injured
A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has hit the coast of Peru in the Ring of Fire region, sparking tsunami fears. The massive quake hit 31km south-southwest of Acari, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS). One person died and 20 people have been injured after the seismic movement which had an epicenter in Lomas. Houses in the Arequipa region have been destroyed and electricity is out. In the town of Yauca, Justo Palomino Yucra, 55, was crushed to death. Provincial mayor of Caravelí, Santiago Neyra confirmed the death following the earthquake.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said tsunami waves are possible within 300 km of the epicenter along the coast of Peru. National Weather Service officials also claimed there is a tsunami risk, around 186 miles from the centre. Peru is located in the Ring of Fire, an area in the Pacific Ocean prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said: “Hazardous tsunami waves are forecast for some coasts.”

Date Setter Claims North Korea Will ‘Start WW3 Triggering Rapture in April’
ATTENTION: The following report does not reflect the views or beliefs of ETH.

Here we go again, Yet another date setting prediction that will be another flop! North Korea will start World War 3 and trigger the Rapture in April “beyond any shadow of a doubt” in April, it has been claimed. David Meade, a self-style Christian Bible code decipherer, has said we are in the “midnight of the end of days”. Fundamentalist Christians believe there will be a Rapture and seven years of Tribulation with apocalyptical conditions on Earth when the Antichrist rises before the Second Coming of Christ and true believers are saved by God. Mr Meade is among them and has spent 20 years

trying to unlock hidden messages about our future in verses from the Bible. He claims the “unfolding” chain of events began with a sign in the heavens during the August 21 total solar eclipse. Writing on conspiracy theory website PlanetXnews.com, Mr Meade said: “I am the best natural code breaker you’ll find on the topic of Biblical eschatology, which I’ve studied for 20 years. “What I’m revealing here people have searched for over a period of centuries. “My book The End of Days tells the entire story.

Deadly Flu griping the nation, Overwhelming ERs and leaving 20 children dead
The flu virus has reached nearly every corner of the nation. Influenza activity is widespread in all states except Hawaii (and the District of Columbia), according to the weekly flu report released Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Flu is everywhere in the US right now,” said Dr. Dan
Jernigan, director of the CDC’s influenza branch. “This is the first year we’ve had the entire continental US at the same level (of flu activity) at the same time.”
It has been an early flu season that seems to be peaking now, he said, with a 5.8% increase in laboratory-confirmed cases this week over last. There were 11,718 new laboratory-confirmed cases during the week ending January 6, bringing the season total to 60,161. These numbers do not include all people who have had the flu, as many do not see a doctor when sick. Seven additional pediatric deaths were reported during the week ending January 6, bringing the total for the season to 20.

The incredible message from a 27-year-old dying woman
Holly Butcher, who recently died at age 27 of a rare form of cancer that affects the bones, wrote a letter to her friends and family in her last week of life-giving wise and moving advice about how to get the most out of whatever time we each have on Earth. I’ve gleaned 14 life lessons from the young Australian woman’s incredible letter that I think carry profound lessons for us all. Here they are, with words from her letter quoted below each lesson, in Australian spellings just as she wrote them:
1. Life is a gift and your time could be up at any moment.
“It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right. I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go. I love my life. I am happy. But the control is out of my hands.”
2. Your problems are tiny and often meaningless.
“Those times you are whinging about ridiculous things (something I have noticed so much these past few months), just think about someone who is really facing a problem.”
3. Stop worrying about the small stuff – and when things don’t go your way.
“Let all that s— go … I swear you will not be thinking of those things when it is your turn to go. It is all SO insignificant when you look at life as a whole.”

Tear-Jerking Moment a Homeless Boy Breaks Down in Tears Are Receiving His Very Own Bed
A homeless boy from Detroit, Michigan, had his Christmas wish come true, when his family was able to move into a fully furnished home that, much to his delight, included a bed of his own. Daeyers and his mother Dionna had been living in and out of homeless shelters after she lost her job as a trainee nurse. According to the Daily Mail, when the mother and son moved into state housing, all they had to live with
were an inflatable mattress and a few chairs, meaning the eight-year-old slept on a pile of blankets on the floor. With the help of non-profit Humble Design, an organization “helping families transitioning out of homeless shelters by providing furnishings and design services,” Daeyers and his mom were able to celebrate Christmas in a fully furnished home that included the only gift the little boy hoped to receive—his own bed.

Facebook blocks funding for major pro-life movie
A crowdfunding site for a theatrical drama in production that promises to tell the “true story” of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that established a “right” to abortion has been blocked by Facebook. The movie’s producer, Nick Loeb, told WND the content of the pro-life movie, which exposes Planned
Parenthood’s roots in the eugenics movement, clearly is the reason for the censorship. “They have even blocked people sharing the ads I paid for,” Loeb said. “This is stealing or fraud.” Facebook has not responded to requests for an explanation. Loeb told WND he and his colleagues are looking for a lawyer to take on the case.

Ice cream bars recalled from dozens of chain stores due to listeria concerns
A dairy company is voluntarily recalling ice cream bars sold at Kroger, Jewel, Aldi and dozens of other store chains in the U.S. and Puerto Rico due to possible listeria contamination. At issue are are orange cream bars, raspberry cream bars, chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars and variety packs including those flavors, made in 2017 at Fieldbrook Foods’ Dunkirk, N.Y. plant on the Hoyer 1 Line.
Routine testing discovered Listeria monocytogenes in a few ice cream bars and during subsequent sampling, according to the company. Production and distribution of all items manufactured on that line have been halted. Listeria may cause serious or fatal infections in young children, the elderly and people who have weakened immune systems, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Measles exposure risk at Newark Airport
Health officials in New Jersey are warning passengers who traveled through Newark Liberty International Airport earlier this month that they may have been exposed to measles. The New Jersey Department of Health says an international traveler with a confirmed case of the highly contagious
disease arrived in Terminal C on Jan. 2, departed for Indianapolis from a domestic terminal, and may have gone to other areas of the airport. They say anyone at the airport between 6:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 2 may have been exposed and could develop symptoms as late as Jan. 23.

British Girls’ School Bans Staff from Calling Students ‘Girls’
The Altrincham Grammar School for Girls in the United Kingdom has officially banned its teacher from addressing its students as “girls.” Altrincham Grammar for Girls sent out a letter last week informing student’s parents that teachers would officially be prohibited from referring to their students as “girls.”Headteacher Stephanie Gill explained in a letter to the student’s parents: “We are working to
break ingrained habits in the way we speak to and about students, particularly referring to them collectively as “girls.” In an interview with the BBC, a local resident condemned the decision. “It’s ridiculous. We live in an age where we have to respect people’s views and if people have issues around gender and sexuality we have to understand that. But girls should be referred to as girls,” the resident said.

Facebook drastically changes News Feed to make it “good for people” (and bad for most publishers)

Facebook drastically changes News Feed to make it “good for people” (and bad for most publishers)
Facebook is making big, immediate changes to News Feed. The company will now prioritize content from friends, family, and groups over “public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post-Thursday night. News publishers that have relied on Facebook for traffic will suffer: “Some news helps start conversations on important issues,” Zuckerberg wrote. “But too often today, watching video, reading news or getting a page update is just a passive experience.”
The change, Facebook admits, is major. Users will be given “more opportunities to interact with the people they care about,” which necessarily means less publisher content, Adam Mosseri, Facebook’s VP of News Feed, wrote in a post-Thursday:
Because space in News Feed is limited, showing more posts from friends and family and updates that spark conversation means we’ll show less public content, including videos and other posts from publishers or businesses. As we make these updates, Pages may see their reach, video watch time and referral traffic decrease. The impact will vary from Page to Page, driven by factors including the type of content they produce and how people interact with it. Pages making posts that people generally don’t react to or comment on could see the biggest decreases in distribution. Pages whose posts prompt conversations between friends will see less of an effect.

Russia carries out massive military drill with thousands of troops simulating attack
Russia has sparked fears of a potential war looming as thousands of troops simulated a deadly attack during huge military drills. Pictures from the Khmelyovka training ground show soldiers in a massive range of war scenarios, including detonating weapons on the battlefield. Huge explosions are seen in some of the photos, blasting sand from the beach as fireball erupted.

Troops were seen testing out UR-77 Meteroit mine clearing systems, or working with an array of pistols and guns. And flares filled the air with smoke as soldiers advanced on their targets under the cover of the thick black plumes. The drills involved more than1,000 soldiers, including the engineer and sapper units of the Russian Navy’s Baltic Fleet.

Christians from various parts of the world recently detailed for The Christian Post how they, their families, friends and ministries have been persecuted simply because they worship Jesus Christ. On Wednesday, Open Doors USA rolled out its 2018 World Watch List and announced that as many as 215 million followers of Christ throughout the world are being persecuted for their faith.

Christians from Egypt, India and Vietnam traveled to the U.S. to attend the Open Doors press conference held at the National Press Club and to share their own experiences. CP caught up with the international group of believers, who only provided their first names for security reasons, following the press conference to learn more about the types of persecution they face.

Ten Things You Need to Know About the Tribulation

Ten Things You Need to Know About the Tribulation
(By Christian Evidence) Some people teach that the Church should prepare for trouble, and had better prepare themselves in order to survive the great tribulation soon to come, just in case, because we might find ourselves in the midst of it. It’s true that we should never think that, since we know Jesus, we’ll not experience anything bad. But it’s not true that the Church should prepare in order to survive the tribulation. The true Church will NOT be in the tribulation, not at all!

1. Believers escaping wrath is taught plainly in scripture. The Bible clearly says in 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Luke 21:36, and Revelation 3:10, that believers escape before the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. Read it for yourself!

The Lord Himself promised to deliver us — Rev 3:10
The church is to be delivered from the wrath to come — 1 Thess 1:9-10
Christians are not appointed to wrath — 1 Thess 5:9; 1, Thess 4 & 1 Thess 5:1-2
2. Consistency in symbolism. Noah and his family escape before the Flood comes. As a matter of fact, God commanded Noah and his family to enter the ark seven days before the Flood came (Genesis 7:1-10) just as the Church will escape seven years before God’s wrath is fully poured out. Similarly, Lot and his family escaped from Sodom before the city was destroyed. In particular, Jesus said the last days would be like in the time of Noah and Lot! Why should God make believers go through wrath this time?

School Agrees to Pay $800,000 After Transgender Student Born Female Is Denied Use of Boys’ Bathrooms
A school board in Wisconsin has agreed to pay $800,000 to settle a lawsuit in the case of a transgender former student born female who was initially denied the request to use boys’ bathrooms. The Kenosha Unified School Board voted 5-2 Tuesday night in favor of the $800,000 settlement, Kenosha News reported. Lawyers said that $650,000 of that sum would go toward attorney’s fees. The student, Ash Whitaker, a biological female who identifies as a male, claimed the school had carried out discriminatory
practices in requiring that students use the bathrooms of the gender they were born with. Whitaker, who graduated Tremper High School in June 2017, also claimed that school staff would monitor trips to the bathroom. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled in May to uphold U.S. District Court Judge Pamela Pepper’s injunction allowing Whitaker to use male-only restrooms despite the school’s directives.

7 Signs of Prosperity Pimps
Jan 12, 2018 | 0 |

7 Signs of Prosperity Pimps
(By Joseph Mattera) I believe very strongly that God wants to bless His people and give them an abundant life (John 10:10). I also believe poverty is a curse and something the gospel reverses when biblical principles are applied properly. Furthermore, I do not believe pastors and church ministers should take a vow of poverty and that churches should give ample compensation to their lead pastors. That being said, I have been appalled by what I am calling in this article “prosperity pimps”—which are those who use the word of God primarily as a means of personal profit (1 Tim. 6: 5). The following are seven signs of prosperity pimps:
1. When the focus of the ministry is always raising money
I have no issue with churches and ministries taking large segments of a service at times to raise money. After all, without money ministry cannot continue. What I am referring to in this point is the fact that some preachers use their platform to be purveyors of “prosperity” every time they minister. When raising money is the primary focus of a minister every time they have a platform—that is a red flag to me (and a sign they may be a prosperity pimp!).

Why Is It Difficult to Tell the Difference Between a Christian and Non-Christian?
(By Bert Farias) This is God’s heart for His people: “O that there were such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!” (Deut. 5:29). “He shall be the stability of your times, a wealth of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is His treasure” (Isa. 33:6). A heart to truly obey Him is what the Lord has always looked for in His people. This heart is cultivated through our love for the Lord and holy fear. This fear is birthed in God’s people primarily through a knowledge of His judgments.
Notice in the early days of the church, the effect the judgment that fell on Ananias and Sapphira had on the people. “In hearing these words, Ananias fell down and died. And great fear came on all those who heard these things” (Acts 5:5). “At once she fell down at his feet and died. Upon entering, the young men found her dead and carried her out and buried her beside her husband. Great fear came on the entire church and on all those who heard these things. Many signs and wonders were performed among the people by the hands of the apostles. And they were all together in Solomon’s Porch. No one else dared join them, but the people respected them. Believers were increasingly added to the Lord, crowds of both men and women” (Acts 5:10-14).

Food riots grip western Venezuela, Cattle slaughtered by Mob in field
Hungry mobs ransacked a food collection center, and a supermarket in Venezuela’s western Andean state of Merida on Thursday and reportedly even slaughtered cattle grazing in a field as unrest over food shortages spread through the country. An opposition lawmaker from Merida, Carlos Paparoni, said four people had died and 10 were injured in the chaos over the last two days,
but he did not specify the circumstances. Four years of recession and the world’s highest inflation have plunged millions of Venezuelans into poverty, and President Nicolas Maduro’s authoritarian socialist regime faces mounting unrest. Venezuela’s Information Ministry did not respond to a request for information about the latest disturbances to rock the nation of 30 million people.

Also, Joseph was a "type" of the Church and he was removed from his land and ended up in Egypt where he became royalty just as the Church will be raptured from this lowly earth and enthroned in Heaven (Revelation 3:21, 4:4). Then the land of Israel underwent seven years of terrible famine while Joseph was tucked safely away in palaces of splendor. A foreshadowing of the Time of Jacob's Trouble if there ever was one since Jacob himself, and his other sons, were suffering in the famine.

Another example was the Prophet Daniel who had been elevated to a high position in Babylon when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fiery furnace. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were a shadow of Israel being protected during the Tribulation while Daniel was a shadow of the Church, which will be far away from harm. Though later, Daniel himself becomes a shadow of Israel when he is protected in the midst of the den of lions.

Additionally, Jewish wedding customs at the time of Christ were a perfect parallel to the pre-tribulational rapture: the groom came and "purchased" his bride, making a binding, unbreakable agreement to return for her, he then went away to prepare a place for her in his father's house, and then around one year later returned for her with a "shout". The groom and the bride went into the bridal chamber in the father's house where they remained hidden away for seven days while wedding guests celebrated outside.

3. The "departure" of the Church.

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition..." (2 Thessalonians 2:3)

The Greek word for perdition, in the above verse, is apostasia, which means "departure" rather than "falling away". The context in the passage (gathering of the Church, removal of the restrainer, and revealing of the antichrist), make this Scripture almost certainly a description of the rapture of the Church. If apostasia does refer to the rapture in this verse (and strong evidence suggests so) then on the basis of this passage alone, mid-trib, pre-wrath, and post-trib theories would be completely disproven.

2 Thessalonians 2 has another strong bit of evidence for the pre-trib rapture, which can be found in verses 6-7. We learn quite clearly that the man of lawlessness (the antichrist) cannot be revealed until a certain restrainer is removed. Most commentaries regard the restrainer to be the Holy Spirit working in and through the Church. The removal of the restrainer necessitates a pre-tribulational rapture.

4. The Church is conspicuously absent from Revelation chapters 5 through 19. The word "Church" is mentioned 22 times in Rev. 1-3, but is not mentioned again until Rev. 22:17. The Book of Revelation is primarily about the events transpiring during the Tribulation and the Church is not mentioned one time between chapters 5 and 19. Even more, Revelation 4:1 is a type or shadow of the rapture where the Apostle John is "caught up" to Heaven at the sound of a trumpet.

The 24 elders, which most biblical scholars consider to be a picture of the glorified Church in Heaven, are already present in Heaven in chapter 4 and from Heaven John and the elders are able to witness the Tribulation events occurring "below" on earth. The only allusion to the Church in these chapters is found in Revelation 12, specifically Revelation 12:5, where a male child that represents the corporate Church is raptured to Heaven before Israel (the woman) enters into Tribulation.

5. Angels don't resurrect people when they gather them for judgment.When the angels are sent forth to gather the elect at the second coming (Matt. 24:29-31), some have wrongly interpreted this as the rapture (post-trib theory).

There is one huge problem with this interpretation. If we are resurrected at this time, why would we need angels to gather us? In the resurrection, we will be like the angels (Matt. 22:30), able to travel in the air at will. Obviously, these people who are gathered are not resurrected, therefore it can't be the rapture. No one would claim the wicked are raptured at this time, yet Matthew 13:39-41, 49 says the angels will not only gather the elect, but also the wicked. This gathering is not a resurrection.

6. Contradicting two separate events. Concerning the return of Jesus, the Bible presents a day we can't know and a day we can know. Matthew 25:13 says Jesus will return at an unknown time, while Revelation 12:6 says the Jews will have to wait 1,260 days for the Lord to return. The 1,260 days begins when the Antichrist stands in the Temple and declares himself to be God (Matt. 24:15-21, 2 Thess. 2:4) This event will take place at the mid-point of the seven year Tribulation (Dan 9:27).

The Antichrist has authority to rule for 42 months, which is 1,260 days (Rev. 13:4) and will be destroyed by Jesus at His second coming (Rev. 19:20, 2 Thess. 2:8). The known and unknown days must happen at different times, meaning they are two separate events. Another example is First Thessalonians 4:13-17, it says the righteous are taken and the wicked are left behind. Matthew 13:30, 49 says the wicked are taken first and righteous are left behind. This points to two separate events. The rapture and the second coming are clearly SEPARATE!

7. No mention of resurrection at Second Coming. Revelation 19:11-21 doesn't mention a resurrection. However, the rapture is a resurrection of those "in Christ" (1 Thess. 4:13-18). Isn't it a little bit odd that in Rev. 19:11-21, which is the clearest picture of the second coming of Christ, there is no mention of a resurrection? The rapture will be the biggest event since the resurrection of Jesus where hundreds of millions of Christians will be resurrected and translated, yet there isn't any mention here. Don't you think it deserves at least one verse? Also, Zechariah 14:1-15 is an Old Testament picture of Jesus returning to earth at the second coming. Again, no mention of a resurrection. The rapture isn't mentioned because it doesn't happen at the second coming.

8. Who will populate the Millennium? If the rapture occurs at the second coming and the wicked are cast into hell at that time, who will be left to populate the millennium? Only people in their natural (non-resurrected) bodies will be able to have children (Matt. 22:30). With a Pre-Tribulation rapture, the people saved after the rapture who are alive at the second coming will populate the earth during the Millennium.

9. Jesus will receive us to Himself, not us to receive Him (John 14:2-3). Jesus said He would prepare a place for the Church in heaven, then He would come again to receive us to Himself. Why would Jesus prepare a place for us in heaven and then not take us there? At the rapture, He will come to receive us to Himself, "that where I am (heaven), there you may be also." If the rapture occurred at the same time as the second coming, we would go up to the clouds and then immediately come back to earth. That would contradict John 14:2-3.

10. Revelation 12 birth (rapture) before labor (tribulation). Revelation 12 has personally ended the debate for me. In this verse, the woman represents Israel and the child in Revelation 12:5 appears to be a symbol of the Church and this particular child is said to be "raptured" to Heaven.

The timing of this child's birth and rapture is before the woman goes into labor (Isaiah 66:7-8)! There was widespread agreement among conservative evangelical scholars in the 16th through 19th centuries that the male child is in fact the Church. Over 25 prominent theologians agree with this. In fact, the founders of modern dispensationalism who re-popularized the pre-trib rapture such as Darby and Ironside found Revelation 12:5 to actually be the chief proof-text of the pre-tribulational rapture of the Church.

These differing views (mid-trib, pre-wrath, and post-trib theories) are based upon different approaches, presuppositions, and argumentation. In fact, they substantially contradict each other. If trying to read scripture literally, each of these views have increasing difficulties. Mid-trib, pre-wrath, and post-trib proponents handle these Scriptures in a variety of creative ways, whereas the pre-trib view is better able to harmonize the many events of end-time prophecy. There are many awkward difficulties with the other differing views.

Christian Evidence was created to enable Christians to defend their faith, and to open their eyes up to the overwhelming evidence for Christianity. We hope to answer many common questions people have regarding Christianity, as well as displaying the overwhelming evidence for creation, evidence against evolution, the amazing end time prophecies that have unfolded before our eyes, and the incredible proofs of God. Any questions you have, feel free to ask. Signs are all around of the end times, which should encourage us to spread the gospel! Find out more at www.christianevidence.net

Tropical Cyclone “Ava” causes floods and landslides, leaves 29 dead
Tropical Cyclone “Ava” reached a peak intensity of 167 km/h (103 mph), an equivalent to Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale, just hours before it made landfall over Toamasina, Madagascar on January 5, 2018. Heavy rain was falling across northern Madagascar since January 3 and increased with the landfall, producing deadly floods and landslides. “On a national scale, the provisional toll is 29
dead, 22 missing, 17 170 displaced and 83 023 affected,” the National Bureau for Risk and Catastrophe Management (BNGRC) said in a statement. There are no less than 20 000 extensive damage claims. Among the worst hit areas are the capital Antananarivo, where more than 3 200 people were evacuated from their homes. The center of the cyclone has now left the island nation and there are no more alerts in effect.

Bangladesh struck by coldest temperatures ever recorded
Severe cold wave engulfed Bangladesh this week with record-breaking low temperatures, the coldest the country has seen since record-keeping started in 1948. At least 12 people, including 6 children, died of cold-related ailments in just 4 days. Temperatures in parts of Bangladesh dropped to 2.6 °C (36.7 °F) on Monday, January 8, 2018, well below average for the country used to mild winters. “It is the lowest temperature since authorities started keeping records in 1948,” Shamsuddin Ahmed, head of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD), told AFP.
The previous record low of 2.8 °C (37 °F) was recorded in 1968, he added. The worst affected were country’s northern regions, where at least 12 people died of cold-related ailments, including 6 children in just 4 days in Rajshahi, Kurigram and Thakurgaon districts. However, unusually low temperatures also affected its southern regions. Capital Dhaka recorded 9.5 °C (49.1 °F) on Monday, the lowest temperature this season, BMD said. The city’s lowest temperature ever was 5.6 °C (42 °F) recorded in 1964.

‘God Had a Plan for Me’: Teen’s Miracle Recovery Stuns Doctors after a Car Landed on His Head
Juan Spence is the definition of a walking miracle. On May 22, 2017, the Williamsburg teen was involved in a near-fatal car accident near his Warhill High school. Juan was a passenger in his friend’s car that rainy Spring day. “My friend is speeding away down the road,” Juan told CBN News in a recent interview at his home. “Due to all the rainwater, he loses control of the car. He hits a post, the car starts tumbling down the road and me not having my seatbelt was terrible,” he recalled.
“I couldn’t believe it. I crashed through the sunroof head first, landed onto the roadway and the car still tumbling, rests on me and crushes my body and my skull.” Juan had been ejected from the car, which landed on his head. He was rushed to MCV Hospital in Richmond Virginia. Doctors said the pressure and swelling in his brain was so bad that a piece of his skull had to be removed. Meanwhile his mother, Elizabeth Butler began to pray as soon as she heard about the crash.

3 Crucial Points All Prayer Warriors Need to Remember

3 Crucial Points All Prayer Warriors Need to Remember
(By Michael Youssef) There are three things to remember when praying for our world, our neighbors, our friends and our family members. We must employ penitent, persistent and persuasive prayer. The Bible gives us an example of an effective intercessor in Abraham’s intercession for Sodom (see Gen. 18:16-33).
Penitent Prayer: Abraham did not come to God demanding. He didn’t say, “God, please do this. It’s very important for You to do this.” He did not come to God enumerating all his righteous deeds, all his righteous acts. In fact, he said, “I am nothing but dust and ashes” (Gen. 18:27b. NIV).
Persistent Prayer: When Abraham interceded for Sodom, he persisted in his prayer. He didn’t pray flippantly once or twice then give up. He continually petitioned for Sodom and his family. Six times Abraham would make his request of the Lord. Each time he saw the grace of God extended, and he became emboldened to ask for more.
Persuasive Prayer: How should our prayers be persuasive? By twisting God’s arm? No. Persuasive prayer is pleading the character of God. When we plead with God on the basis of who He is and what He promises, we are praying a persuasive prayer.

California flooding death toll rises to 17, 100 homes destroyed
The death toll in weather-related incidents in Santa Barbara County has risen to 17 by Wednesday, after a storm led to dangerous mudflows that destroyed 100 homes and damaged at least 300 others in wildfire burn areas. Santa Barbara County Fire Department officials confirmed the number of fatalities rose from 13 to 15 overnight. Then another two deaths were added to the toll in an afternoon press conference. The fatality figure could increase as at least 17 people were considered still missing as
search-and-rescue efforts continued “While we hope it will not, we expect that this number will increase as we continue to look for people who are still missing and unaccounted for,” Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said. More than 500 first responders and 10 search dogs were involved in the search-and-rescue efforts. Three people were rescued on Wednesday. Searchers believe they have looked through about 75 percent of the debris field.

How Some Christians Become the Devil’s Minions

How Some Christians Become the Devil’s Minions
(By J. Lee Gray) A friend of mine who pastors a growing church recently got a visit from a worried church member who said she had an important message from the Lord for him. When they met, the woman began to warn him about another woman in the church who, she claimed, was going to tear the church apart. The pastor listened carefully and then asked a few questions. Had the woman in question said something derogatory to reveal her alleged evil intentions? What was she doing to tear the church apart? Was there proof? After all, the woman being accused was a supportive volunteer who seemed to get along with everyone.
The woman with the “word from the Lord” got defensive and said she knew she was right because she had “a gift of discernment.” She didn’t need to corroborate her story or provide concrete evidence. She just “knew.” When the woman bringing this accusation was told she was out of bounds, she left the meeting in a huff—and then left the church because her super-spiritual insight was not received. In this case, the woman who claimed to have a hotline to God did not have “discernment”—she was exhibiting a spirit of accusation. She had what I jokingly refer to as “the gift of suspicion.” Ironically, she is the one who is guilty of tearing the church apart.

Markets Jittered By China Threat To Halt US Treasuries

Markets Jittered By China Threat To Halt US Treasuries
China, the biggest buyer of U.S. sovereign bonds, could be slowing down or even halting its purchases, according to a report. Bloomberg News reported Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter, that officials in Beijing have recommended the Chinese government lower — or even stop — its buying of U.S. sovereign debt. The report also notes that Chinese officials think U.S. debt is becoming less attractive compared with other assets, adding that trade tensions between the two countries could provide a reason to slow down or halt the purchases.
“If China stops buying Treasuries, the market could suffer,” strategists at Jefferies said. “Treasury financing needs are going to rise significantly in 2018 and beyond relative to recent history, so Treasury is going to be looking for as many sources of demand as they can find.” The news is worrying markets. Treasury prices fell, boosting yields. The dollar also dropped against most currencies and gold rose. U.S. equities declined.

Former Teacher Has Certificates Suspended for Speaking Against Homosexuality on Facebook
The New Jersey Department of Education has suspended the teaching certificates of a former high school teacher who came under fire seven years ago for speaking against the sin of homosexuality on Facebook. As previously reported, Jenye “Viki” Knox, 56, first came under fire in June 2011 after she posted comments on Facebook decrying the promotion of the homosexual lifestyle Union High School. The
school had reportedly erected a display in acknowledgment of “Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Month,” which featured popular homosexual celebrities. “It’s still there,” she vented on her personal Facebook page. “I’m pitching a fit.” The status then began to spark discussion, which turned into a controversy when others were offended by her comments. Knox, a born-again Christian who also had served as the adviser for the school’s Bible study group, defended the Bible’s position on homosexuality when others challenged her status.

PROPHECY WATCH: Earth’s Volcanoes Are Waking Up: Dormant Papua New Guinea Volcano Erupts For First Time
Hundreds of people are fleeing the island of Kadovar after a violent volcano has erupted for the first time in history. There have also been warnings that tsunamis could strike the island after the alarming eruption. Mount Tavurvur, in the town of Rabaul in East New Britain province, erupted at 3 a.m. Friday morning, local time. The volcano, located in Papua New Guinea, was thought to be dormant. It has now erupted for the first time in known history, spewing ash thousands of feet into the air and forcing the evacuation of hundreds of residents. But the worst could be forthcoming, as experts now fear this surprising eruption could lead to landslides and tsunamis in the area.
“Due to the steepness of the island, landslides are possible and together with the explosive nature of magma, tsunamis may be generated,” the Rabual Volcanological Observatory said in a statement. “It appears from satellite imagery and aerial photographs that it started with mild Vulcanian activity from a vent at the southeast base. It appears a fissure may be opening just inside of the western wall of the net’s breach descending down to at least sea level,” the statement continued.

The New Normal For Church Security

The New Normal For Church Security
We recently experienced a new tipping point for church security. A tipping point is the critical juncture in evolving developments that leads to a new and, often, irreversible state. We call that new state “the new normal.” In church security we have witnessed two major tipping points. Though child sex abuse in churches was not new, it reached a new level of awareness and response when Pope John Paul II called an emergency meeting with the U. S. cardinals in 2002. We knew then the issue was serious and pervasive.
We reached a second major tipping point in November 2017 with the church shootings at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Among the 26 people killed were nine members of one family. Church leaders and members across the nation began to realize that if it can happen in Sutherland Springs, it can happen anywhere. I recently conducted a social media survey to ask church leaders and members to share what their churches were doing for church security.

Worst country to be Christian revealed and 50 danger zones named
Christians are facing the threat of murder, rape and torture around the world, with new areas around the world emerging as the next “hotbed” for persecution. North Korea has been named as the worst place to be a Christian in the world, with Kim Jong-un’s hermit state topping Open Doors’ 2018 watchlist. While the torturous totalitarian regime regularly features at the top of the terrifying list, Open Doors gave a
new stark warning for Christians in South East Asia, which they named the “next emerging perception hotbed”. North Korea has topped Open Doors’ yearly list of worst states for the 16th year running with Saudi Arabia and Somalia the only two other states to have been ranked first during the 26 years Open Doors has been creating the list. The Open Doors report said: “North Korea remains the most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian. Believers are forced to worship in secret – if they are discovered they are taken to labour camps.

21-year-old healthy bodybuilder dies of flu complications
Kyler Baughman was a seemingly fit 21-year-old who was working and going to school like any normal 21-year-old. “He was into physical fitness,” said his mother, Beverly Baughman. “He was going to school to be a personal trainer.” But when he came to visit for the holidays, he wasn’t looking like he was in peak condition. “We saw him the 23rd for our family Christmas get-together and we noticed he wasn’t feeling well,” Beverly Baughman said.
“He looked rundown and had a bit of a snotty nose.” He celebrated with family again Christmas night, and returned to work Tuesday, but he came home early, because he wasn’t feeling well. “He kinda just laid down and went about his day and that was the day he was coughing and said his chest hurt, he had a mild cough,” said his fiancée Olivia Marcanio.

Trump’s new nuke ‘posture’: Draft allows nuclear response to conventional attack and new warheads
The Trump administration is expected to reveal a new, hawkish nuclear doctrine, which reportedly incorporates more cases in which it would use nuclear weapons, and also mandates the development of smaller-yield, simpler warheads. The new Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) is expected to be revealed
sometime after President Donald Trump’s state-of-the-union address in late January and will be the first update of the key strategy document in eight years. According to Jon Wolfsthal, a former special assistant to Barack Obama on arms control and non-proliferation, the final draft that he reviewed is pretty hawkish, but some of the more aggressive suggestions from the initial variant have been dropped. Wolfsthal described the document to The Guardian.

China May Halt Purchases of U.S. Treasuries…
China added to bond investors’ jitters on Wednesday as traders braced for what they feared could be the end of a three-decade bull market. Officials in Beijing reviewing the nation’s foreign-exchange holdings have recommended slowing or halting purchases of U.S. Treasuries, according to people familiar with the matter. Benchmark bonds reversed earlier gains on the news, with the yield on 10-year Treasuries climbing for a fifth day.
China’s foreign-exchange reserves of $3.1 trillion are the world’s largest, though it wasn’t clear whether the recommendations have been adopted. The market for U.S. government bonds is becoming less attractive relative to other assets, and trade tensions with the U.S. may provide a reason to slow or stop buying American debt, the thinking of these officials goes, according to the people, who asked not to be named as they aren’t allowed to discuss the matter publicly.

UPDATE: Massive 7.6 Quake strikes in the Caribbean, One of most powerful Quakes ever in region
A massive 7.6 magnitude earthquake has struck the Caribbean Sea, prompting a tsunami warning for nearby islands including the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. The tremor, one of the largest to hit the Caribbean in recorded history, struck on Tuesday night at about 9.51pm just over 25 miles from the coast of Great Swan Island, belonging to Honduras. The earthquake had a depth of 6.2 miles and rocked several Central American nations.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said a tsunami advisory was put in place for hurricane-hit Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands and warned of possible waves up to three feet above tide level. There were also fears waves could potentially impact the coasts of Central American nations, including Jamaica, Cuba and the Cayman Islands. However, the warnings were later canceled and in the end, no tsunami materialized. Warnings were issued after what was one of the strongest earthquakes to hit the Caribbean in modern times. The 2010 quake that devastated Haiti killing more than 200,000 people was magnitude 7.0.

WASHINGTON (AP) — US officials said Friday that President Donald Trump will extend waivers on Iran sanctions, keeping the landmark 2015 nuclear deal alive for at least another several months despite his past vows to scuttle the deal.

The waivers are being announced Friday. Three officials said the waivers will be accompanied by other, targeted sanctions on Iran and a stern warning that Trump will pull out of the deal negotiated by the Obama administration if fixes aren’t made by spring.

That’s when the next deadline comes for extending sanctions relief for Iran.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly preview the decision.
The officials say Trump’s waiver announcement will also include harsh criticism of Iran’s response to recent protests against the Islamic Republic’s leadership.

Five goals for a healthy marriage in 2018

Five goals for a healthy marriage in 2018
(By Andrea Stunz) My husband and I value forward-thinking and troubleshooting in most areas of our lives, especially our marriage. We like to look ahead and point out potential pitfalls that might become challenges. We aren’t always thorough but by trying, we are a step ahead. From the beginning of our almost three decades of marriage, we have tried to focus on making and keeping our marriage healthy. We are keenly aware of the foxes (Song of Solomon 2:15) that prowl the outskirts of our garden seeking to ruin. We are being extra purposeful this year to keep our eyes and hearts focused on maintaining a healthy marriage because we know what happens when we don’t. I would like to share with you five goals that we feel can foster an intentional marriage in 2018.
Live the Gospel – We have a little wooden sign hanging in our house that says, “Every family has a story. Welcome to ours.” Our marriage story is one of immeasurable grace and continually finding ourselves on the path to redemption. We want to live out the Gospel and encourage others to do the same. When people see our marriage, we want them to feel the authentic and welcoming embrace of the Gospel. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27 NIV

What Some Christians Totally Misunderstand About Spiritual Gifts

What Some Christians Totally Misunderstand About Spiritual Gifts
(By Dean Merrill) To hear some Christians talk about spiritual gifts, it evokes the opening crawl of a Star Wars movie: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away …” They reminisce about some wonderful camp meeting back in 1947, when there was “a mighty move of God.” They describe in glowing terms what they saw in an Oral Roberts or Kathryn Kuhlman healing crusade. They hark back to the Azusa Street awakening in Los Angeles (1906-09) and how, in spite of the prevailing Jim Crow laws and attitudes, the Holy Spirit brought whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians together in a great flow of spiritual renewal.
Somehow I hear the voice of Gideon in the background, who said to the angel, “”O my lord, if the Lord is with us, then why has all this happened to us? Where are all His miracles that our fathers told us about? They said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us out of Egypt?'” (Judg. 6:13b). He yearned to see God in action now, not just a hundred or two hundred years previous. I echo the earnest plea of the prophet Habakkuk: “O Lord, I have heard the report of You, and was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of these years make them known; in wrath remember mercy” (Hab. 3:2).

Justin Bieber Posts Photo of Reading the Bible to His 95M Instagram Followers
Singer-songwriter Justin Bieber’s latest proclamation of his Christian faith is a photo he posted to his Instagram account over the weekend. It shows him sitting down on an airplane seat, shirtless, with an open Bible on his lap. So far, the image has drawn more than 6 million likes among his more than 95 million followers on the social media site. On Dec. 29, the 23-year-old singer had posted a photo of a painting he had created that he titled “Calvary.”
He announced to his fans that he would be auctioning off the painting at a later date with proceeds from the auction going to victims of wildfires in California. The 23-year-old has spent the last year focused on growing deeper in his Christian faith. He has been speaking to his followers about Jesus Christ using social media. Bieber’s Instagram bio currently includes a link to a Bible study by one of his pastor friends, Judah Smith, titled, “How’s Your Soul? Small Group Bible Study.”

Kentucky may be the first state without an abortion facility

Kentucky may be the first state without an abortion facility
EMW Women’s Surgical Center in Louisville, Kentucky, is the last remaining abortion facility in the state. Its sister center in Lexington closed down in 2017 because of unacceptable health conditions at the facility. Live Action News’ Carole Novielli noted in July, “A report written by the Lexington Herald in June of 2016 indicates that when inspectors visited on the Lexington facility on February 17 that year, ‘they reported that employees told them the clinic only performed abortions’ and they found ‘dirty conditions and expired medicine.’
News reports also indicate that state inspectors found unsanitary conditions.” A law in Kentucky requires abortion facilities “to have transfer agreements with a hospital in the event of botched abortions or medical emergencies,” reported Live Action News’ Becky Yeh in September 2017. The law, according to an attorney for the state, is two decades old and has never been enforced, and every state in the area has laws like this one. Regardless, EMW, along with a Planned Parenthood facility in Louisville, sued the state and was granted “a temporary restraining order to stay open until a judge could decide on the matter.” According to the Daily Wire, this matter could be decided upon within a matter of weeks.

Arab League to seek recognition of ‘Palestine’
Jordan announced on Saturday that the Arab League would seek international recognition of a Palestinian state with eastern Jerusalem as its capital, AFP reported. Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi made the announcement at a joint news conference with Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit after talks in Amman on the status of Jerusalem.
The talks were attended by the foreign ministers of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and the Palestinian Authority as well as by the United Arab Emirates minister of state for foreign affairs. “There is a political decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and we will strive to reach an international political decision to recognize a Palestinian state… with (eastern) Jerusalem as its capital,” Safadi declared.

A new generation of L.A. Satanists finds community in blasphemous times

A new generation of L.A. Satanists finds community in blasphemous times
The following is an excerpt from the Los Angeles Times: In November, in the candlelit basement of a house just above the Silver Lake Reservoir, Alexandra James walked over to an altar where her husband, Zachary, waited near a bleached human skull, teeth locked in eternal rictus. From the altar, she lifted a sword and drew points across his chest while a circle of onlookers watched solemnly (well, a few giggled too). An organist played eerie minor key chords and Alexandra turned to face the group. “On this altar we consecrate swords to direct the fire of our unholy will,” she said.
“A human skull, symbol of death. The great mother Lilith created us all, and will destroy us all.” “Hail Satan! Hail Satan! Hail Satan!” The group chanted back. The Jameses had planned the ritual as the climax of a low-key house party that included a dozen or so friends associated with ritual magic — artists, writers, rock musicians who freely mingle occult vocabularies (Satanist, coven, witches), none taken too literally. But a bigger moment came a few hours later when word circulated that Charles Manson had died. Far from mourning a man whose crimes burned satanic imagery into the American mainstream, everyone cracked beers in celebration and jammed on psych rock tunes.

400-Year-Old Bible Survived Invasions, Fire and Even Being Used as Toilet Paper
The incredible story of a 400-year-old Bible is set to be told at the National Library of Wales after the sacred book was discovered hidden away in the back of a church. The leather-bound 1620 Llanwnda Bible survived the invasion of Britain during the 1797 Battle of Fishguard. During the fierce battle, the
army of 1,400 French and Irish troops raided St Gwyndaf’s Church in the Welsh town of Llanwnda and used pages from the Bible to start a fire. The Llanwnda Bible was eventually discovered some 200 years later in the 1990s. “The story goes that the book was rediscovered at the back of the church in the 1990s, and nobody realized what it was,”

Freak Snowfall Covers Sahara Desert in 15 inches of Snow!
More than 15 inches (40cm) has blanketed sand dunes across the small town of Ain Sefra, Algeria. It is the second time snow has hit in nearly 40 years, with a dusting also recorded in December 2016. But this snowfall which hit yesterday is much deeper than the fleeting shower little more than a year ago. Locals, who endure temperatures of 37C in summer, were stunned as dense snow settled on the town, known as
‘the gateway to the desert’. Photographer Karim Bouchetata, who captured the remarkable images, said: “We were really surprised when we woke up to see snow again. It stayed all day on Sunday and began melting at around 5 pm.” Last year’s flurry brought chaos across the town, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy. Children made snowmen and even sledged on the sand dunes.

Rocker Ozzy Osbourne Had An Unexpected Reaction When He Visited The Ark Encounter
When former lead vocalist of British rock band Black Sabbath Ozzy Osbourne announced he would be visiting creationist attraction “Ark Encounter,” a lot of people winced at the prospective awkwardness. Known for his shocking remarks and wacky behavior, the unconventional musician and reality TV star is known as the “Prince of Darkness.” So what would he make of this vast and controversial creationist landmark?
Well, his reaction wasn’t quite what you might expect. Ozzy and his son, Jack, visited the Kentucky attraction as part of their TV show Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour and appeared rather over-awed by the whole experience. “Me on Easter Sunday going to a f—ing ark?” Ozzy barked as he and Jack drove through Grant County. “My people will never believe it.”

Snowmageddon strikes Spain and Italy, Hundreds trapped in vehicles, Blizzard drops major snowfall
Spain deployed 250 soldiers on Sunday to help rescue hundreds of drivers who were trapped overnight in vehicles as heavy snowfall cut off several roads. Two companies of specialist soldiers and 95 vehicles were sent to free hundreds of cars stranded on the AP6 highway linking Madrid and the northwestern city of Segovia. The rough weather comes as many Spaniards are travelling home after the end of the
Christmas holidays. Meanwhile, heavy snow has cut off the Alpine ski resorts of Cervinia in Italy and Adelboden in Switzerland, as stormy weather continues to batter Europe. Some travelers are being trapped since Saturday night… Can you imagine that? Soldiers and firefighters used snowplows to try to clear the snow, and distributed blankets and hot drinks to motorists. But what do you do when you run out of gas? How do you stay warm?

2017 was the most costly U.S. disaster year on record

2017 was the most costly U.S. disaster year on record
Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria combined with devastating Western wildfires and other natural catastrophes to make 2017 the most expensive year on record for disasters, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported Monday. The disasters caused $306 billion in total damage in 2017, with 16 separate events that caused more than $1 billion in damage each. The bulk of the damage, at $265 billion, came from hurricanes in particular.
“2017 was a historic year for billion-dollar weather and climate disasters,” said Adam Smith, an economist for NOAA, on a media call with reporters. The record-breaking year raises concerns about the effects of future natural disasters, as scientists fear climate change could make extreme weather events more damaging. Hurricane Harvey, which sparked extreme flooding in Houston and the surrounding area in August and September, caused $125 billion in damage, the year’s most expensive disaster. Hurricane Maria, which in September set off a fatal and ongoing humanitarian crisis in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico and elsewhere, caused $90 billion in damage.

Russia-China real gold standard means end of US dollar dominance
The BRICS counties are considering starting an internal gold trading platform, according to Russian officials. When this happens, the global economy will be significantly reshaped, and the West will lose its dominance, predicts a precious metals expert. In 2016, 24,338 tons of physical gold were traded, which was 43 percent more than in 2015, according to Claudio Grass, of Precious Metal Advisory Switzerland. We have to put the BRICS initiative into a broader context. It is just part of a geopolitical tectonic shift which started decades ago. We have seen a constant outflow of physical gold from the West to the East. At the same time, the West has lost the economic war, and as a consequence,
the focus now turns to the financial system. China dominates the world economy and has displaced the US as the world’s most formidable economic powerhouse,” he told RT. “As Bejing and Moscow understand that America used the dollar to control the world, by implementing a new kind of ‘Gold standard 2.0’ they want to distance themselves from this control. Furthermore, the vast majority of the people in Asia sees gold as superior, or ‘real’ money, something the West has forgotten, because of all the paper wealth (credit) they have accumulated,” said Grass. The expert notes the BRICS countries account for 40 percent of the world’s population and around 23 percent of the world’s domestic product.

‘Prophecy is Being Fulfilled’: Ancient Biblical Jerusalem Was Hidden for 2,000 Years Until Archeologist’s Incredible Find
For eons, people assumed that ancient biblical Jerusalem was part of the Old City, an area inside modern-day Jerusalem — but a British archeologist shattered that definitive claim 150 years ago when he made a discovery that had reportedly been hidden for nearly 2,000 years. Anarina Heymann, outreach coordinator for the City of David, told CBN News about how archeologist Charles Warren “rediscovered the ancient biblical Jerusalem”
and how that finding has transformed the understanding of the city that King David designated as his capital 3,000 years ago. Heymann explained that the archeological findings at the site have helped “bring the Bible to life” and how she believes, in turn, prophecy is being fulfilled. In the end, she said the excavations, as well as the Bible’s contents, are coming together to give a full picture of Jerusalem’s past.

Gideons No Longer Allowed to Offer Bibles at Kansas Elementary School Following Complaint
Representatives for Gideon International will no longer be allowed to make Bibles available to students at an elementary school in Kansas following a complaint from a national humanist organization. The American Humanist Association (AHA) recently sent a letter to the superintendent of Herington Schools and the principal of Herington Elementary School to advise that it had been contacted by the parents of several children who were unhappy with a recent one-day Bible distribution.
According to the correspondence, the Bibles were placed on a table in a commons area where those interested could freely take a copy. “Your school district has allowed an outside religious organization, believed to be the Gideons, to distribute Bibles to young children at Herington Elementary School. The district’s actions in assisting the Gideons in distributing Bibles to elementary students represents a clear breach of the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution and we hereby demand assurances that this practice will discontinue immediately,” the letter, written by attorney Monica Miller, READ MORE http://christiannews.net/2018/01/07/gideons-no-longer-allowed-to-offer-bibles-at-kansas-elementary-school-following-complaint/

Bed bug infestation makes comeback; Cities infested…
Baltimore is known for its historic neighborhoods, monuments, crab cakes — and, increasingly, its bed bugs. For the second straight year, the U.S. port city ranked No. 1 on a Top 50 Bed Bug Cities list compiled by Atlanta-based pest control services company Orkin LLC. The list, released Monday, is based on the most residential and commercial treatments for the seed-sized bloodsuckers from December 2016 to November 2017, and reflects a rising number of infestations across the U.S.,
according to Tim Husen, an Orkin entomologist. Washington, 40 miles from Baltimore, was ranked second on Orkin’s list, followed by Chicago, Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio. The Baltimore City Health Department doesn’t have any bed bug mitigation programs, according to its website, which gives tips on identifying and controlling the ancient critters.

Wind chill at Mount Washington drops to minus 90 degrees
Summit conditions at Mount Washington were so brutally cold Saturday morning the temperature tied for the second coldest on Earth, according to Mount Washington Observatory. The temperature hit minus 36 degrees Fahrenheit — with a wind chill of minus 90 (minus 68 degrees Celsius), according to the educational and research institution in New Hampshire. “We basically just start saying it’s stupid cold outside,” Mike Carmon, senior meteorologist at Mount Washington Observatory,

told The New York Times. The summit of Mount Washington sits at 6,288 feet above sea level. Frigid conditions have also gripped other parts of the Northeast and are expected to last most of the weekend. On Saturday, wind chill warnings throughout the Northeast hit Burlington, Vermont, with a temperature of minus 1 and a wind chill of minus 30. Both Philadelphia and New York were shivering at 8 degrees, with wind chills of minus 11 in Philadelphia and minus 9 in New York.

Two-thirds of Christians in new survey say they have been spiritually abused
Two-thirds of respondents to an online survey say that they have been spiritually abused, a study has revealed. Academics from Bournemouth University, who carried out the survey on behalf of the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS), a safeguarding charity, received 1591 responses from Christians, 1002 of whom said that they had personally experienced spiritual abuse.

Caution has been expressed about the figures in the survey, whose results form part of the report Understanding Spiritual Abuse in Christian Communities, published on Sunday. A co-author, Justin Humphreys, executive director of safeguarding at CCPAS, said: “Yes, the results are significant, as [being spiritually abused] was not a prerequisite for participation. Having said this, in some ways it is not surprising, as many will have taken this as an opportunity to share their story in anonymous form, possibly for the first time.” The study also acknowledges that definitions of spiritual abuse are not clear cut, and suggests this lack of clarity may be a significant barrier to responding appropriately to its victims within the Church.

Is Artificial Intelligence the Mark of the Beast?

Is Artificial Intelligence the Mark of the Beast?
He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.” (Revelation 13:15)
Artificial intelligence is intelligence displayed by machines, in contrast with the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals. In today’s society, most of us regularly talk to Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant or even the artificial intelligence embedded in our cars, refrigerator, or our home. The AI talks back and responds directly to us about whatever it was that we wanted to know from it or to do for us.
Without even realizing it, human daily interaction with AI has become very common, and is continuing to grow more common. Scientists and others who predict what the future holds (futurists) have even planned, for the future, to name this artificial intelligence (AI), “Singularity.”, when it is no longer just the product of man, but has complete control over itself.

Deadly Flu Outbreak Spreading in UK, Churches Ban Handshakes
The deadly Aussie flu virus is feared to have spread to almost all UK areas following a weekend surge in cases. Dorchester in Dorset and the City of London are now the only places where the “influenza-like illness” has been reported – with churches even banning handshakes in an attempt to curb the spread of infection. Some 4.5million people claimed to have been affected over the past week.
Dartford was one of the last areas to have cases reported, with Essex, Teesside and Devon appearing to be among the worst-hit regions. In the last 24 hours the Brecon Beacons and Telford, which yesterday had no reported cases, were revealed to have at least one each. Figures from the NHS show that over 1,500 people across the country have been struck down with the illness.

This Is the Type of Leadership We Need in the 21st-Century Church

This Is the Type of Leadership We Need in the 21st-Century Church
(By Joseph Mattera) Through the years, I have observed various kinds of leadership styles and methods. Some are effective in certain contexts but greatly limit their reach because of their limited perspective. The purpose of this article is to explore the differences between what I call “lateral” and “vertical” leadership.
By lateral leadership, I am referring to a person who is horizontal in scope and perspective and functions more as a facilitator of vision, ideas and abilities. By vertical leadership, I am referring to a person who is vertical in scope and perspective and has more of a narrow view regarding how to accomplish vision and with whom they will work. Although serving as a lateral leader is more difficult and time-consuming, I am convinced it is the more effective way forward to implement mission for the 21st-century church and marketplace.
Vertical leaders can also be very effective—especially in emergencies and in the short-term. They can be very convincing, dogmatic, entrenched in their own paradigm of doing things and can attract loyal followers to their mission. The question is not whether they are good leaders—the point of this article is the fact that vertical leaders are limiting the scope of their mission because they limit their team to the handful of those who rarely push back at them in the decision-making process. Of course, even lateral leaders have to make the final decision in the event they experience an impasse with their team and cannot reach consensus.

Burning Man Announces Newest Centerpiece: Temple to Greek Goddess
The Burning Man Festival, held in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada in August, has chosen its centerpiece structure, a massive wood temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Gaia, that is just one of the many pagan symbols featured at the popular desert gathering. The festival has certainly evolved from its humble beginnings over 30- years ago when 20 artists gathered on a Beach in San Francisco. The annual event is now a high-profile gathering that attracts over 70,000 to its isolated desert location.
The Burning Man organizers announced two weeks ago that they chose the design for the centerpiece temple of the festival. This year they will build a massive structure composed of 20 wood trusses converging as a spiral. In the center will be a large mandala, a symbol used by Buddhists as an aid in meditation. Designed by Mamou-Mani, a London-based French architect, the structure will be titled Galaxia.

5 Biblical Prophecies Fulfilled in 2017 and 5 More Expected in 2018
The year 2017 was packed with what many describe as “remarkable” or “unprecedented” events. Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration and his latest announcement that he sees Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish people are considered by believers to be prophetic signs that the world is coming ever closer to the Messianic area. Breaking Israel News looks back on these prophetic moments and suggests five further prophecies that could be fulfilled in 2018.
In 2017, Jerusalem became a place of assembly, a House of Prayer for all Nations, Jews and non-Jews alike, precisely as prophesied in Zechariah. Tourism to Jerusalem skyrocketed, with arrivals climbing by 25 percent compared to the 2016, and bringing in $5.8 billion of revenue. Such assembly was particularly evident during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, when tens of thousands of Christian tourists arrived to Jerusalem.

Strong quakes Hit San Francisco And Mount St. Helens And Experts Warn They May Be Foreshocks For ‘Something Larger’

Strong quakes Hit San Francisco And Mount St. Helens And Experts Warn They May Be Foreshocks For ‘Something Larger’
(By Michael Snyder) Just when it seemed like things may be settling down, two very unusual earthquakes have hit the west coast within the past couple of days. A 4.4 magnitude quake struck Berkeley, California just prior to 3 AM on Thursday morning, and a 3.9 magnitude earthquake hit Mount St. Helens in Washington state on Wednesday. Overall, there have been 68 earthquakes in the vicinity of Mount St. Helens since New Year’s Day, and there have been a total of 629 earthquakes in the state of California within the last 30 days.
Could it be possible that all of this activity is leading up to a historic seismic disaster on the west coast? The 4.4 magnitude earthquake along the Hayward fault very early on Thursday jolted people out of bed all over the San Francisco area… A strong 4.4 magnitude earthquake has rattled the Bay Area shortly before 3 a.m. USGS is reporting the quake was centered in Berkeley. On KRON4’s real-time earthquake map it shows the epicenter. The quake struck at 2:39 a.m. and was centered near the Claremont hotel. The earthquake had a preliminary depth of 8 miles, according to USGS. This wasn’t a soft and gentle earthquake that everyone kind of laughs about after it is over.

Iran struck 5.1 earthquake injuring at least eight people.
The latest earthquake hit in the west of the Middle Eastern country in the same area that was starting to recover after more than 600 people were killed in the region in November. A number of aftershocks affected the area after the initial earthquake. The earthquake hit Iran’s western province of Kermanshah. The semiofficial ISNA news agency says the Kurdish town of Sarpol-e Zahab, about 520 kilometers west of Tehran, was near the epicenter of the quake.
According to the state media’s report, the earthquake “affected an area of eight kilometers (five miles) and injured eight people.” However, in a contradictory statement, Kermanshan Province Governor Hushang Bazvand reported no damage or casualties. “Fortunately, after all the checks that have been made in the area, there are no reports yet of any damage or casualties,” he told state television.

Kansas School District Halts Bible Giveaway After Secular Group Complains on Behalf of Parents
A school district in Kansas has put an end to it its yearly Bible giveaway at a public elementary school after it received a complaint from one of the nation’s leading secular legal organizations. Herington Elementary School will no longer allow an outside Christian organization to hand out Bibles to students in the school hallway during regular school hours, district Superintendent Ron Wilson said this week. “Our district respects all religious beliefs and the constitutional rights of every student,” Wilson said, according The Kansas City Star.
“We will no longer allow distribution of religious materials.” Wilson’s announcement comes after the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center sent a letter to Wilson and Principal Donalyn Biehler stating that allowing an external Christian group to hand out Bibles to elementary age students is a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Washington state allows 3rd sex option ‘X’ on birth certificates
Washington state will allow residents to change the sex on their birth certificates to a nonbinary option called “X.” “Social norms are changing,” state registrar and Center for Health Statistics director Christie Spice told ABC News today. “When a person’s gender designation on their birth certificate doesn’t match how people present themselves, it opens the door to harassment and intimidation. ”The new rule, announced Thursday and effective Jan. 27, also removes the need for medical approval from a primary
physician for adults who want to change the sex status on their birth certificate. Minors who don’t identify male or female and want to change their sex designation still need written consent from a parent or legal guardian and medical input. The difference now is that the list of health care professionals who can approve the change has expanded for minors to include primary physicians, physician assistants, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and mental health counselors, according to the state Department of Health.

Severe flu brings medicine shortages, Packed ERs, Rising death toll in California…
So many people have fallen sick with influenza in California that pharmacies have run out of flu medicines, emergency rooms are packed, and the death toll is rising higher than in previous years. Health officials said Friday that 27 people younger than 65 have died of the flu in California since October, compared with three at the same time last year. Nationwide and in California, flu activity spiked sharply in late December and continues to grow.
The emergency room at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica typically treats about 140 patients a day, but at least one day this week had more than 200 patients — mostly because of the flu, said the ER’s medical director, Dr. Wally Ghurabi. “The Northridge earthquake was the last time we saw over 200 patients,” Ghurabi said. Experts say it’s possible that this year’s flu season is outpacing the last simply because it’s peaking earlier.

Texas woman dies from flesh-eating bacteria after raw oysters banquet
A Texas woman died in October from a flesh-eating bacteria after she consumed raw oysters. Jeanette LeBlanc was crabbing with her friends and family on the Louisiana coast in September when she contracted the infection, KLFY reported. LeBlanc and her friend Karen Bowers picked up some raw oysters in a Westwego market for a treat.
The two women ate about two dozen raw oysters each before LeBlanc became ill, Bowers said. Bowers said her friend looked like she developed an allergic reaction. “An allergic reaction of sorts, that’s what I would call it. That’s what we thought,” Bowers told KLFY. Two days later, LeBlanc’s condition worsened and doctors informed her that she had vibrio.

Franklin Graham Outraged at Ohio Abortion Billboard Campaign
A large abortion clinic in Ohio is running a new billboard campaign that aims to shift public opinion of abortion. There are 16 billboards and each one has a phrase like, “Abortion is a blessing,” or “Abortion is safer than childbirth.” Preterm, the abortion clinic behind the billboards, encourages people to share images of the billboards using hashtags #AllOfTheAbove and #MyAbortionMyLife.
“We want to push people to think about abortion in new, diverse ways with these billboards,” Nancy Starner, Preterm’s director of development and communications, said in a news release. “We want the people in our community who have had abortions to know that they’re not alone.” Evangelist Franklin Graham posted on social media about the new campaign – sharing a statement of his own about abortion.

East Coast Set for Weekend of Deadly Sub-Zero Temperatures
Brutally cold conditions are expected to envelop the East Coast most of this weekend, prompting wind chill warnings from Virginia to Vermont. Temperatures will reach close to zero from Philadelphia to Boston through Saturday night, with wind chills making it feel like minus 10 degrees to minus 20 degrees. Even more temperate locations won’t escape the cold, with the mercury dipping into the single digits in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., over the weekend — about 20 degrees below normal for this time of year.
The blast of cold air, which comes just days after a storm dumped as much as 18 inches (46 centimeters) of snow in some places, could bring the feeling of real jaw-clenching temperatures to people living further north. The National Weather Service said Friday that temperatures in the Berkshire mountains in western Massachusetts could seem like a frosty minus 35 degrees, parts of New Hampshire and Maine could experience minus 45, and Vermont’s mountain regions could feel like minus 50 degrees.

Standing for Christ in an Age When Atheism Is Fashionable
Jan 5, 2018 | 0  |     
Standing for Christ in an Age When Atheism Is Fashionable
(By Hanne Herland) We live in an age where many question Christianity. It somehow has become fashionable to be an atheist. The mainstream media constantly focus on negative news about Christians. Believers in God are told that they are old-fashioned, outdated and simply out of touch with reality. And many young people struggle, as they don’t quite know how to approach this fervent disdain. This is why it is more important than ever to educate yourself on how to defend the faith, how to rationally and spiritually explain the
Christian belief to those who, out of ignorance, think that belief in God belongs to the past. Read The Culture War: How the West Lost its Greatness and get the tools. Remember that atheism is a faith like any other, the belief in “nothing” and the assortment that “the universe is empty.” None of them ever went out there to check, so how do they know there is no God, angels or devils out there? They assume based on faith. Atheism is a religion, they strongly believe that “God is dead” and mankind is the only source of light, which is impossible to prove empirically.
