Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

——————————————-

                                                 

IS THE NEW TESTAMENT WRONG?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/is-the-new-testament-wrong/
QUESTION:    I have a friend who believes we have to follow the Torah to be saved. He says our Bibles are mistranslated and Christianity is a pagan religion. He says we are to follow the and observe the Law the way Christ did. Is he wrong or should I be following the Torah?
ANSWER:    One of the favorite tactics used by people who can’t find support for their beliefs in the Bible is to say it isn’t translated correctly. And yet the best scholars of each generation have poured over the ancient manuscripts to give the most accurate translations possible. Also there are over 5600 Greek manuscripts of the New Testament and cross checking has shown their consistency to be over 99%. In other words all these ancient Greek manuscripts essentially say the same thing. For additional support there are 19,000 early manuscripts in other languages. This exceeds the manuscript base for any other ancient book by a very wide margin.
A reasonable person would conclude that for all practical purposes our New Testament is an accurate rendering of these manuscripts. Therefore the only conclusions we can draw are that either
1) all these scholars have been mistaken in similar ways in their translation efforts, or
2) they’ve all participated in a massive conspiracy to mislead us that has spanned 2,000 years, or
3) the people who say the Bible is translated incorrectly because it doesn’t support their position are wrong.
This doesn’t even take into consideration the fact that the Bible is the Word of God, so He would have to permit it to be falsified and let 50 generations of sincere believers who trusted it be lost. Remember, His word is all He has given us for this age. Do these people expect us to believe He would let this happen after going to such extremes to save us?
 

OLD TESTAMENT VS. NEW TESTAMENT

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/old-testament-vs-new-testament/
QUESTION:    A friend of mine told me that I could ask you biblical questions and get a good answer. my question is this: There is a lot of violence in the old testament like the slaughter of baal’s prophets that God said was ok but in the new testament He tells us that violence is never ok and that we should love our enemy. It just seems like there was a huge change between the new and old testaments.
ANSWER:    The short answer is you’re right. There is a big difference between the Old and New Testaments. That difference is the cross, where God made peace with us by dying for our sins (Colossians 1:19-20). Now He asks us to live at peace with other out of gratitude for what He’s done. Romans 12:17-18 says,
“Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
But that doesn’t mean bad people will get away with doing wrong to you. Romans 12:19 says,
“Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”says the Lord.

PAKISTAN MOVES T.E.L.’S FROM STORAGE – NUCLEAR-TIPPED “SHAHEEN-III” MISSILES

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/pakistan-moves-t-e-l-s-from-storage-nuclear-tipped-shaheen-iii-missiles
At about 8:25 PM eastern US time last night, word got out that spy satellites had picked-up Transporter-Erector-Launcher (TEL) vehicles inside Pakistan, being removed from their storage facilities with missiles on them.
Further analysis REQUIRED visual verification and that verification came about an hour later from resources on the ground inside Pakistan: the missiles are the Shaheen-III medium Range Ballistic Missile, armed with NUCLEAR WARHEAD.
These particular TEL’s were in storage Depots assigned to Pakistan’s National Command Authority and that is the NUCLEAR arm of their government.
This information was revealed LIVE on the air during the Hal Turner Radio Show on WBCQ, WRMI, and KYAH radio.
What was NOT known (at that time) was whether these TEL’s were being moved out to USE, or to protect from being destroyed by possible Indian attack?  Or was it just a “message” because Pakistan knew the missiles would be seen by spy satellites?
At 3:50 AM ET today (Thursday) intel sources confirmed directly that analysts see the TEL’s have been moved to what would be considered LAUNCH locations. As such, the Intel Community believes Pakistan intends to USE Medium-Range-Ballistic-Missiles with nuclear warheads.
If fired from southeastern Pakistan the Shaheen III can hit India’s Nicobar and Andaman Islands which are west of Thailand. India is believed to have placed nuclear assets there.
At present, it is not known if Pakistan intends a first strike, or if Pakistan fears a ground invasion which they know they are incapable of countering due to vastly superior India armed forces numbers.  The chart below shows that India is FAR superior to Pakistan in all the ways that matter:
It is believed Pakistan fears a ground invasion because yesterday, India turned over to military control, their National Highway 1-A; the major east-west corridor in the far north of India. There is only one reason to do that: create a Logistics chain to support a ground invasion to take back all of Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan control.
Overnight, Pakistan took what are seen as unusual and decisive actions against camps that India regards as TERRORISTS.  Pakistan attacked certain camps, and made arrests of people allegedly tied to the terror group Jaish e-Muhammed.  
Just  hours ago, Pakistan Prime Minister Khan told a joint sitting of Parliament that Pakistan wants the situation to de-escalate and would be RELEASING the captured India fighter jet pilot whose plane was shot down by Pakistan.
For its part, India does not seem interested at all in these developments.  India says their air strike against Jaish e-Muhammad terror camps was targeted retaliation for a terror attack against India on February 14 which killed forty (40) India Police Officers.  India also says that Pakistan’s response to those air strikes was to target India military sites and military gear.  In other words, an act of war.
Indian Defense Ministry: “We believe that the Pakistan air intrusion was an attack on military installations. We believe that the Indian Air Force Pilot was ill-treated by the Pakistan Army in violation of the Geneva convention.”
“India did not target any civilians or military installations, but Pakistan escalated by targeting Indian military installations. India did not deliberately cross LoC, very strong demarches have been given. India has foiled Pak attempts at creating a war psychosis.”

As this story publishes at 10:33 AM ET, there remains constant shelling between Pakistani and Indian positions along the Lo
C.
Said one military intel source “Every time I try to think rationally about this situation, I remember that the Pakistanis protected Osama Bin Laden for years in the middle of a neighbourhood surrounded by military staffers.”

INDIA PREPARES FOR WAR, 14,000 BUNKERS ARE BUILT ALONG PAKISTAN BORDER AS THE NATIONS PREPARE THEIR MILITARY

https://endtimeheadlines.org/2019/02/india-prepares-for-war-14000-bunkers-are-built-along-pakistan-border-as-the-nations-prepare-their-military/
(Daily Mail) – India is preparing for war with the construction of 14,000 bunkers to protect families on the Pakistan border as Islamabad invokes the specter of nuclear conflict, telling India ‘better sense’ is needed. Earlier today Pakistan and India said they had shot down each other’s warplanes, in a dramatic escalation of the dangerous confrontation between the nuclear-armed rivals. Pakistan said it downed two Indian jets in its airspace and captured two pilots, later amended to one: whom they then seemingly paraded –
blindfolded and bloodied – for the camera. On Tuesday evening, Islamabad used heavy caliber artillery to shell 12 to 15 places along the Indian side creating panic among the populace on the border where bunkers are being hastily thrown up to ease their fears. The downed pilot was named today as Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman and seen in a video of what appears to be an interview at a Pakistani Airbase, in which he refuses to reveal any information about his capture – or captors.

CHINESE AUTHORITIES BLOW UP CHRISTIAN MEGACHURCH WITH DYNAMITE

(Independent) – Chinese authorities have demolished a well-known Christian mega-church, inflaming long-standing tensions between religious groups and the Communist Party. Witnesses and overseas activists said the paramilitary People’s Armed Police used dynamite and excavators to destroy the Golden Lampstand Church, which has a congregation of more than 50,000, in the city of Linfen in Shanxi province. ChinaAid, a US-based Christian advocacy group, said local authorities planted explosives in an
underground worship hall to demolish the building following, constructed with nearly $2.6m (£1.9m) in contributions from local worshippers in one of China’s poorest regions. The church had faced “repeated persecution” by the Chinese government, said ChinaAid. Hundreds of police and hired thugs smashed the building and seized Bibles in an earlier crackdown in 2009 that ended with the arrest of church leaders. READ MORE

POLLS INDICATE LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN GOVERNMENT

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Government Is The Main Problem, Say A Record Number Of Americans
Authored by Jeffrey Tucker via The American Institute for Economic Research,
Think of all the troubles in the world. Climate change. Student debt. Terrorism. Job insecurity. What’s the number one most mentioned problem, according to a recent Gallup poll? Government itself. Thirty-five percent of Americans put that concern above all others. It’s a record number, according to the pollsters who have been tracking this since 2001.
Not only that: there have only been a handful of times when any number one issue clocked in with this level of intensity: terrorism after 9/11, Iraq after the war began, and the economy after 2008.
When I saw the numbers, my first thought was that Democrats made up the margin of change. They don’t like the president. He drives them crazy. So it makes sense that they would more quickly name government as the leading problem — which in turn raises the question of why they would push so hard for government to exercise more power over our lives.
It turns out, however, that it is not movement among Democrats but among Republicans that is the most noticeable on the graphs.
Having Trump as their president in office, then, has not increased confidence in government. If anything, it has had the opposite effect, turning Republicans themselves against government as never before. But notice that the loathing is nonpartisan.
Other polls such as Pew Research report similar results, with only 18 percent showing confidence in government at all. This is down from 78 percent half a century ago.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that government is getting worse. It suggests instead a kind of rising consciousness about a problem that has been there all along, from Woodrow Wilson to Donald Trump.
Government is the least effective way to solve any social problem. It overrides the capacity of people to deal with their lives and problems in a way that is manageable and adaptable. It creates bureaucracies instead of solutions, wastes resources while everyone else is trying to conserve them, and entrenches rules that do not pertain in a world of fast-paced technological development.
What these two years of political wrangling have shown us is something that will be unavoidable in the coming years. There will never be unified government, operating with a single goal, whether that proposed goal is a restoration of nationalism or the elimination of fossil fuels supposedly to save the planet. The vast gulf that separates the two parties, with extremes driving the ideological debate on either side, is what government now has to offer us. Which is to say: more division, more vituperation, more politics of dogs eating dogs.

THINGS TO COME: ‘THE FORMER FREE, PRODUCTIVE SOCIETY HAS BEEN WHITTLED AWAY, IT NO LONGER EXISTS AND IT’S NOT COMING BACK

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Dear America, There Is No Freedom Fairy
Authored by Jeff Thomas via InternationalMan.com,
For some time, it’s been apparent that the former “free world” countries (the US, EU, Canada, Australia, Japan, etc.) have been on a downward progression – socially, politically and economically.
But, in the last ten years, the awareness of this has become increasingly pronounced. With each successive year, more and more people recognise that all facets of life in these formerly great countries are heading in a decidedly negative direction.
At this point, even those who don’t understand the decline intellectually, feel in their gut that this is not going to end well. Further, they feel it all around them and sense that when the condition becomes critical, it won’t just affect others. When it reaches the crisis stage, they’ll find it right on their own doorstep.
The average person in each of these jurisdictions already no longer trusts either the media, big business or the government and feels that, somehow, they’re all in this together and that they, the electorate, will be the ones who will be the ultimate victims.
So, is this a question of “collective imagination” gone haywire?
Not at all, I’m afraid. Their instincts are quite correct. 
Governments and big business alike have sold out the populace, regarding them as mere fodder in their pursuit of increased power and wealth. Governments in the former “Free World” have for decades become increasingly collectivist, promising ever-greater largesse to the hoi polloi, and the majority of voters, sad to say, have eaten it up.
And so, it shouldn’t be surprising that, as we get closer to the collapse of this house of cards, new candidates arrive on the scene, offering to take entitlements to Never-never land, promising universal free health care, free education through university and a guaranteed income without the need to earn it in any way.
Of course, when this happens, those who understand that 2 + 2 = 4, not 8 or 12, recognize that any government that attempts to deliver on such promises will cause the collapse of the system – not just the economic system, but also the social and political systems.
And, so those people who do understand that the numbers simply won’t work, ask themselves where it will all end. Typically they wring their hands, aware that their concern is the minority view. They recognize that they can no longer discuss their concerns freely, as their country is moving in the opposite direction – embracing the new, empty promises, with ever-more determination.
They search around for some form of hope and, in the majority of cases, whether they like to admit it to themselves or not, their hopes fix on the Freedom Fairy.
They vainly hope that somehow, the average voter will “wake up,” or that sitting politicians will come before the press to reverse the stance that they’ve always maintained – that big government will provide for all.
Unfortunately, that’s a vain hope, isn’t it? Deep in our hearts, we know that sitting politicians are not going to collectively say, “Whoops, we goofed. We’re sending the country into ruin. We’re going to downsize the government, introduce a free market system and then resign and get out of the way.”
And so, for the more ‘advanced’ voter – the one who understands that the political, economic and social system are spiraling downward, the most natural tendency seems to be to irrationally hope that the Freedom Fairy will come along, wave the magic wand, and send the country back to a time when most everyone worked for a living, took responsibility for themselves, paid their own way and built a strong, productive society.
It’s rare indeed for anyone who finds himself in that situation to honestly say to himself, “I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto.”
And that’s the tragic truth. The former free, productive society has been whittled away. It no longer exists and it’s not coming back.
Unfortunately, there is no Freedom Fairy, nor is there a Wizard of Oz, any more than there’s an Easter Bunny or a Santa Claus. When empires collapse, the worst thing that a voter can do is to vainly mark down on the ballot card the name of whoever he thinks the latest Freedom Fairy might be.He should, instead, toss his ballot in the dustbin and leave the polling place, in the knowledge that Mark Twain was absolutely correct.
And what, then? Well, that’s an even tougher question to deal with. Because, at that point, he must accept that if, a) his country has reached its sell-by date and, b) it’s going to take him down with it, his only hope is to bow out of the system that he realizes is on the verge of swallowing him up.
If he doesn’t wish to become collateral damage, his only choice is to pursue the freedom he cherishes in a location where it still exists. Just as the more enlightened German Jews found in 1938; just as savvy Cuban business owners did in 1959, the last opportunity to pursue freedom is just before it ends where you presently reside.

ISRAELI JETS STRIKE MULTIPLE TARGETS IN GAZA

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Israel strikes Hamas posts in Gaza after explosive balloon attack
Israeli jets struck multiple targets in the southern Gaza Strip linked to Hamas late Wednesday, a few hours after an incendiary device from Gaza damaged a home in the Eshkol region.
There were no immediate reports of casualties from the Israeli strikes.
According to Palestinian media reports, several Hamas posts in the southern strip were hit, including one in the Khan Yunis seafront and another outside the city.
Some of the sites hit are believed to belong to Hamas’s Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the terror group’s armed wing.
The IDF said the strikes were in response for the “explosive balloons.”
“Our fighter jets and helicopters struck a number of Hamas targets in Gaza in response to the explosive balloons that were launched from Gaza earlier tonight and damaged an Israeli home,” the army said.
The army reiterated its position that it holds Hamas responsible for any violence emanating from the Strip.
A few hours earlier, an explosive device flown into Israel from the Gaza Strip detonated outside a home in the Eshkol region, causing damage but no injuries.
The small bomb had been attached to a cluster of balloons and launched toward Israel from the coastal enclave on Wednesday as part of nightly riots along the Gaza border.
“A string of balloons carrying an explosive object was spotted traveling from the southern Gaza Strip into Israeli territory. The object apparently exploded in midair and caused damage to a house in a nearby community,” the army said.
Since March 2018, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have launched thousands of balloons carrying incendiary and explosive devices into Israel, causing wildfires in nearby agricultural fields, forests and nature reserves.

UNITED METHODIST CHURCH SPLITS RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE AS CONSERVATIVES VOTE ‘NO’ ON LGBTQP ‘ONE CHURCH PLAN’

https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/united-methodist-church-splits-right-down-middle-conservatives-vote-no-lgbtqp-one-church-plan/
This was a surprise: The denomination’s bishops, its top clergy, pushed hard for a resolution that would have allowed local congregations, conferences, and clergy to make their own choices about conducting same-sex marriages and ordaining LGBTQ pastors. This proposal, called the “One Church Plan,” was designed to keep the denomination together. Methodist delegates rejected its recommendations, instead choosing the so-called Traditional Plan, which affirmed the denomination’s teachings against homosexuality.
united-methodist-church-votes-no-one-church-plan-lgbtqp-denied-laodicea-split-end-times
The United Methodist Church voted on Tuesday to toughen its teachings against homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and LGBTQ clergy. It must now decide whether it will stay together.
The United Methodist Church pulled off a surprise, no, make that a shocking upset over the forces of spiritual darkness by voting NO on the proposed pro-LGBTQP ‘One Church Plan‘ at meetings that lasted over the weekend and into the past few days. But that victory, tenuous as it may be, comes at the cost of a huge church split right down the middle. Watchers on both sides are predicting a mass exodus of pro-LGBTQP people by the time all the dust from this battle settles.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:3-5 (KJV)
Now granted, the UMC has not been, since the days of John Wesley, anything remotely resembling a real Bible believing church. Their own Book of Discipline says that the “United Methodist Church is part of the holy catholic church…”. But even so, this vote was very, very surprising. Especially to the forces of the LGBTQP who thought for sure this would be a slam-dunk for their agenda.
If you would have said to me 28 years ago when I first got saved, that I would live to see the day where the homosexual and transsexual movement would battle for control of the heart and soul of the professing Christian church, I would have said you were nuts. Stark raving mad. This is still the Church Age, after all, not even the Tribulation! But boy, oh boy, are we being pressed right up against that edge. That can only mean one thing as I see it.
Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines now boarding…time to go Home.
CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS JUST RETOOK THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
FROM THE ATLANTIC: At a special conference in St. Louis this week, convened specifically to address divisions over LGBTQ issues, members voted to toughen prohibitions on same-sex marriage and LGBTQ clergy. This was a surprise: The denomination’s bishops, its top clergy, pushed hard for a resolution that would have allowed local congregations, conferences, and clergy to make their own choices about conducting same-sex marriages and ordaining LGBTQ pastors. This proposal, called the “One Church Plan,” was designed to keep the denomination together. Methodist delegates rejected its recommendations, instead choosing the so-called Traditional Plan, which affirmed the denomination’s teachings against homosexuality.
This is a consequential vote for the future of the United Methodist Church: Many progressive churches will now almost certainly consider leaving the denomination. It’s also a reminder that many Christian denominations, including mainline groups such as the UMC, are still deeply divided over questions of sexuality and gender identity. While the UMC in the United States is roughly evenly divided between those who identify as traditionalists and those who identify as moderates and liberals, it is also a global organization. Many of the growing communities in the Philippines or countries in Africa are committed to theological teachings against same-sex relationships and marriages.
Self-described traditionalists in the United Methodist Church got the outcome they’ve been fighting for. Still, “I think there’s a lot of grief on all sides,” said Keith Boyette, the head of the Wesleyan Covenant Association and a main proponent of the Traditional Plan, in an interview on Tuesday. Methodists are in mourning for a United Methodist Church that might be on the brink of a mass exodus.
For years, LGBTQ Methodists, clergy, and their supporters have argued that people of all sexual orientations and gender identities should be fully included in the denomination as leaders, and that their families should be recognized. “As someone who has grown up in our Church, as someone who is gay and goes to one of the least religious colleges in the U.S., my evangelism on campus has grown,” said J. J. Warren, a senior at Sarah Lawrence College who hopes to become a Methodist pastor, during the conference on Tuesday. “We have brought people to Jesus … They did not know God could love them, because their churches said God didn’t … If we could be a Church that brings Jesus to people who are told can’t be loved, that’s what I want our Church to be.”
Others in the denomination, however, see LGBTQ issues as a proxy for bigger divisions over biblical teachings. “This is not a political or social kind of difference. It is primarily, for us, a theological difference, and the truth that the Church has been raised up to share,” Boyette said. “When a Church begins to fracture around its compliance with its doctrine and ethics and discipline, it becomes a house divided. It becomes dysfunctional.”
According to its Book of Discipline, the denomination’s collection of laws and doctrines, Methodist pastors are not allowed to conduct same-sex weddings, and “self-avowed practicing homosexuals” cannot be ordained.

A lesbian pastor, Karen Oliveto, was even elected a bishop in the Church, a position she still holds even though the denomination’s judicial council later ruled that her marriage to a woman violated Church doctrine. At the same time, other churches remain deeply committed to UMC teachings against same-sex marriage and relationships.

At the denomination’s 2016 General Conference, delegates asked UMC bishops to produce recommendations for how the Church should resolve divisions over LGBTQ issues.
