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.

Bible Prophecy is happening right before our eyes and like birth pains, the predicted events are happening more frequently and more intently. Never, in the history throughout the world have so many forces, including economic, scientific, techno-logic, ecologic, cultural, geopolitical, moral, spiritual and religion, converged together to bring this world that’s already teetering over the edge into the abyss, to a point of no return. Jesus said when you see all these signs happening, know that I am near, even at the door.
LATEST WORLD NEWS CLIPS – ARTICLES – SUNDAY JUNE 30th 2019
I will be absent from developing some parts of this Webpage over the next 10 days, I will try to keep everyone updated on the breaking World events of this coming late hour. The World is heading down a “Dangerous Path” which I personally believe is the last moments of the “Birth Pangs” prior to the start of the “Tribulation”. As can be seen from this News Posting, The World “CURRENCY” is on a dangerous path to collapse, and “WAR” in the Middle East, ISAIAH 17/PSALM 83: and the Rest of the world is ever nearer Matt. 24:7 FOR NATION SHALL RISE AGAINST NATION, AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Which is happening “exponentially”. Just this morning Yellowstone National Park (Super Volcano) is becoming even more (Short Tempered) daily, and Earthquakes and Volcanoes are becoming more active daily; Not to mention the World Political and Financial situation is becoming “Blacker” daily also etc, etc. etc. I urge everyone to seek the Lord with all your heart, mind, and strength; The time is short, and the World is groaning. Jesus is at our door and knocking; if you have not already, accept his “FREE” invitation of “Eternal Life”. One needs to only look at the “News Clips” today listed below, to understand our World is dying Spiritually, Financially, and Physically. Just as Jesus predicted it world – TIME IS SHORT:
TRIBULATION IS COMING AND THE REMOVAL OF THE CHURCH IS IMMINENT.
THE GREAT “DECEPTION” IS READY TO BE IMPLEMENTED BY THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. ARE YOU READY FOR JESUS CHRIST RETURN
Rev. 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth:
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them
so won’t you accept Jesus now and be removed from that event and live forever with Jesus in the Family of God?
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)
DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
CAST ALL OUR CARES UPON HIM
QUESTION: Now that Jesus Christ lives through us, and His life is in us, does that mean all of our earthly issues are His issues, and all concerns of our earthly life are His concerns? And so we can and have to fully trust Him about our happiness and welfare in everything because He’s standing by our side?
ANSWER: 1 Peter 5:6-7 says,
“Humble yourselves under God’s mighty hand that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxieties on Him because He cares for you.”
Peter was writing to believers here, so this is not about our salvation. It’s about what comes after. He was saying the Lord will be involved our life, but there are two things we have to do first. One, we have to humble ourselves and come under His hand. That means we admit we don’t know everything after all, so we’re placing ourselves under his direction. Two, we have to cast our anxieties on Him. That means we take them off our shoulders and place them on His.
We can do these things with confidence because we know He cares us and has our best interests at heart. Paul said that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28).
In John 15:5 Jesus said if we remain in Him we can bear much fruit, but apart from Him we can do nothing. That means everyone will benefit when we allow the Lord to direct our lives. We will be blessed, the people whose lives we touch will be blessed, and best of all the work of the Kingdom will be advanced.
If we choose to do so, He will let us do things our way. But if we let Him take charge, He’ll work them out His way, making sure they always result in a benefit to us. I have discovered that letting Him be in charge means things always turn out better than if I try to go it alone.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).
WAITING UPON THE LORD
Would you please tell me what it means to wait upon the Lord” Thanks.
ANSWER: This is a quote from Isaiah 40:31. I believe it means that after praying for direction, we are to wait patiently for the Lord to provide it. An old saying tells us we don’t save any time by moving out ahead of the Lord and we don’t waste any time by waiting for Him. His timing is always perfect. I’ve heard stories of people waiting months or even years for the Lord to give them the go-ahead on something they had prayed about, but because they waited patiently and in faith, the answer came. And when it did, it was obvious that the Lord’s blessing was upon them. Psalm 46:10 reminds us to
“Be still and know that I am God.”

PROPHECY OF ELAM – (Possible Attack on Iran’s Nuclear Program
Trump To Unleash Hell On Europe: EU Announces Channel To Circumvent SWIFT And Iran Sanctions Is Now Operational
With the world waiting for the first headlines from the Trump-Xi meeting, the most important and unexpected news of the day hit moments ago, when Europe announced that the special trade channel, Instex, that will allow European firms to avoid SWIFT and bypass American sanctions on Iran, is now operational.
Following a meeting between the countries who singed the Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was ditched by US, French, British and German officials said the trade mechanism which was proposed last summer and called Instex, is now operational.
As a reminder, last September, in order to maintain a financial relationship with Iran that can not be vetoed by the US, Europe unveiled a “Special Purpose Vehicle” to bypass SWIFT.
The mechanism would facilitate transactions between European and Iranian companies, while preventing the US from vetoing the transactions and pursuing punitive measures on those companies and states that defied Trump. The payment balancing system will allow companies in Europe to buy Iranian goods, and vice-versa, without actual money-transfers between European and Iranian banks.
The statement came after the remaining signatures of JCPOA gathered in Vienna for a meeting that Iranian ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi called “the last chance for the remaining parties…to gather and see how they can meet their commitments towards Iran.”
Until today, Tehran was skeptical about EU’s commitment to the deal and threatened to exceed the maximum amount of enriched uranium allowed it by the deal after US had imposed a series of sanctions on the country.
Meanwhile, opponents of Instex – almost exclusively the US – have argued that the mechanism is flawed because the Iranian institution designated to work with Instex, the Special Trade and Finance Instrument, has shareholders with links to entities already facing sanctions from the U.S.
The announcement sent oil sharply lower, with crude futures falling about $1/bbl in closing minutes before settlement, extending daily loss, as it means Iran now has a fully functioning pathway to receive payment for oil it exports to anyone it chooses.
The announcement will likely send president Trump off the rails, because in late May Bloomberg reported that as part of Trump’s escalating battle with “European allies” over the fate of the Iran nuclear accord, he was “threatening penalties against the financial body created by Germany, the U.K. and France to shield trade with the Islamic Republic from U.S. sanctions” including the loss of access to the US financial system.
According to Bloomberg, the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, sent a letter on May 7 warning that Instex, the European SPV to sustain trade with Tehran, and anyone associated with it could be barred from the U.S. financial system if it goes into effect.
“I urge you to carefully consider the potential sanctions exposure of Instex,” Mandelker wrote in an ominous letter to Instex President Per Fischer. “Engaging in activities that run afoul of U.S. sanctions can result in severe consequences, including a loss of access to the U.S. financial system.”
Germany, France and the U.K. finalized the Instex system in January, allowing companies to trade with Iran without the use of U.S. dollars or American banks, allowing them to get around wide-ranging U.S. sanctions that were imposed after the Trump administration abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal last year.
“This is a shot across the bow of a European political establishment committed to using Instex and its sanctions-connected Iranian counterpart to circumvent U.S. measures,” said Mark Dubowitz, the chief executive officer of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies in Washington.
Here is a simpler summary of what just happened: this was the first official shot across the bow of the USD status as a global reserve currency, and not by America’s adversaries but by its closest allies. And once those who benefit the most from the status quo openly revolt against it, the countdown to the end of the USD reserve status officially begins.
The US ire was sparked by the realization – and alarm – that cracks are appearing in the dollar’s reserve status, opponents of Instex argue – at least for public consumption purposes – that the mechanism is flawed because the Iranian institution designated to work with Instex, the Special Trade and Finance Instrument, has shareholders with links to entities already facing sanctions from the U.S.
In conclusion, one month ago we said that “In 2018, Europe made a huge stink about not being bound by Trump’s unilateral breach of the Iranian deal, and said it would continue regardless of US threats. But now that the threats have clearly escalated, and Washington has made it clear it won’t take no for an answer, it will be interesting to see if Europe’s resolve to take on Trump – especially in light of the trade war with China – has fizzled. “
The answer, it appears is that Europe felt unexpectedly emboldened, just hours before Trump’s meeting with Xi, and that it is ready and willing to call Trump’s bluff; it goes without saying, that if the US does indeed retaliate and proceed with sanctions against European banks, than the global trade war is about to turn far, far uglier.
Dozens of Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli security forces in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya on Friday, after police killed a man who launched fireworks at them in the area on Thursday.
At least 80 protesters suffered light injuries in the Friday night violence, the Ynet news site reported.
Earlier in the day, around 30 rioters threw stones at police, who responded with stun grenades. Later, demonstrators were again launching fireworks at officers in the restive neighborhood.
Security forces killed 20-year-old Mohammad Samir Obeid on Thursday during a skirmish between police and Palestinians in the neighborhood. Police said Obeid launched fireworks at them from a close range,“endangering the lives” of officers.
Issawiya residents have been clashing with security forces since the shooting. Overnight, a community center in the neighborhood that often coordinates with Israeli authorities was burned down in an apparent protest.
A Jerusalem court on Friday reportedly rejected a request to release Obeid’s body to his family for burial.
During the Friday hearing, police recommended to the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court that his body not be released, as a public funeral might ignite further violent clashes in the area, the Haaretz daily reported.
The court accepted the position, but gave police two days to announce when they would release Obeid’s body, which is being held at the Abu Kabir Forensic Institute in Tel Aviv.
Police in recent weeks have reportedly been entering Issawiya on a nightly basis in a bid to track down members of a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror cell believed to be at large in the neighborhood. The police operations have led to regular clashes with local residents.
US CENTRAL COMMAND ORDERS A FLEET OF F-22 RAPTOR STEALTH FIGHTERS TO MIDDLE EAST AS THREAT FROM IRAN CONTINUES TO BUILD TOWARDS MILITARY CONFLICT
by Geoffrey Grider June 28, 2019 – https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/us-central-command-orders-fleet-f-22-raptor-stealth-fighters-middle-east-iran-threat/
The Air Force arm of U.S. Central Command on Friday said the F-22 Raptors arrived this week at al-Udeid air base to “defend American forces and interests.” It posted to its website photos of several F-22s arriving there on Thursday and said this is the first time F-22s have deployed to al-Udeid, which is a hub for U.S. air operations in the Middle East. F-22s, which carry air-to-air missiles and can perform ground-attack missions as well, had previously deployed to al-Dhafra air base in the United Arab Emirates, where they were used last year in support of U.S. and partner forces in Syria.
Nearly a dozen Air Force F-22 stealth fighters have deployed to the Persian Gulf state of Qatar, part of a force buildup requested by U.S. Central Command in May in response to what it called heightened Iranian threats against American forces in the region.
If you think this current situation in Iran is going to just go away any time soon, you would be quite mistaken. The United States as of this writing now has a massive buildup of military force in and around the Persian Gulf. It is not only expensive to use that equipment in battle, but even just sending it there is an incredibly expensive proposition. What we have there now well exceeds any type of mere sabre rattling or muscle flexing.
In a very interesting and related story from The Hill, we read that ‘senators blocked an effort on Friday to restrict President Trump’s ability to go to war with Iran, handing a victory to Republicans and the White House. Senators voted 50-40 on the proposal from Democratic Sens. Tim Kaine(Va.) and Tom Udall (N.M.) to block the president from using funding to carry out military action without congressional authorization.’ My, my, now what does that tell you?
Additional US fighter planes sent to Gulf amid Iran tensions
FROM THE AP: The Air Force arm of U.S. Central Command on Friday said the F-22 Raptors arrived this week at al-Udeid air base to “defend American forces and interests.” It posted to its website photos of several F-22s arriving there on Thursday and said this is the first time F-22s have deployed to al-Udeid, which is a hub for U.S. air operations in the Middle East.
F-22s, which carry air-to-air missiles and can perform ground-attack missions as well, had previously deployed to al-Dhafra air base in the United Arab Emirates, where they were used last year in support of U.S. and partner forces in Syria.
Four B-52 strategic bombers were deployed to al-Udeid days after a May 5 White House announcement that the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group also was being rushed to the region in response to “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” and as a “message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.”
At the request of Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of Central Command, additional Patriot air-and-missile defense systems also were sent to the Gulf region in recent weeks. He also is receiving additional surveillance and intelligence-gathering aircraft to improve the military’s ability to monitor potential Iranian threats against shipping in the Gulf area. READ MORE:
Up to a dozen US F-22A Raptor Stealth Jets have touched down at the US Air Base Al-Udeid in Qatar amid soaring tensions with Iran, and as the Pentagon continues to bolster its forces in the gulf after the recent prepared military attack called off by President Trump at the last minute.
The aerial defense analysis site, The Aviationist, confirmed the new US stealth jet deployment and noted, “While it’s still not confirmed that the deployment of the Raptor was just a pre-planned rotation to the region (rather than part of a build up of forces around Iran), according to rumors, more tactical assets are being moved to the Gulf area in the following days.”
#BREAKING: Twelve F-22A 5th Gen. fighter jets of 94th Fighter Squadron, 1st Fighter Wing arrived Al-Udeid AB, #Qatar in-order to reinforce #USAF’s combat capability in #MiddleEast for confronting hostile activities of #Iran’s Islamic Regime in the region when it is necessary. pic.twitter.com/1MAfD8dft5

On Thursday at least nine of the reported dozen F-22 Raptors belonging to the 192nd Fighter Wing of the Virginia Air National Guard were documented by local photographers as departing Moron Air Base in southern Spain, having been deployed from Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia.
They flew over the Mediterranean and landed in Qatar, despite their usual deployment base to the region being Al Dhafra in UAE, according to The Aviationist.
This suggests the Pentagon is still on a war footing with Iran, positioning forces and advanced stealth fighters to have maximum readiness should hostilities break out.
Early last month the US deployed a group of B-52 strategic bombers as part of in response to what the Defense Department described as “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” related to Iran, as well as the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group to the Persian Gulf region.
Since then it’s been nothing but escalation following alleged tanker attacks as well as the recent US drone shoot down by Iran’s military.

“The Muslim Brotherhood condemns all forms of normalization with the Zionist enemy, and all the actions leading up to the Zionist-American deal, and confirms that all Arab regimes involved in the “Deal of the Century” are anti-Arab peoples, and traitors to the Palestinian cause,” the Muslim Brotherhood said on its Facebook page Tuesday. “The Arab and Islamic people’s position will remain firm in support of the Palestinian cause, not recognized by the Zionist entity, and is alien to all forms of normalization.”
The U.S. proposal would devote $27.5 billion to building up the West Bank and Gaza, including a $5 billion transportation corridor to connect the territories. It is part of a proposed $50 billion economic investment in the region akin to the post-World War II Marshall Plan. Saudi Arabia contends the plan leads to a fully independent Palestinian state.
“The land of Palestine is all Islamic and not one inch of it can be given up, nor its inheritance sold,” IUMS Trustee Sheikh Hassan Ould Aldo said in statement on the Muslim scholars’ group’s website. “This is not a deal.”
Aldo and the Brotherhood use language similar to what Hamas used in its original charter. It rejected any peaceful coexistence. To them, Palestine is part of a waqf, a holy Islamic trust, that no person can negotiate away.
“All political, economic, and cultural dealings and all forms of normalization with the Zionist entity are considered to be a form of supporting and sustaining the occupier in its occupation of land and holy places,” a 2009 IUMS fatwa said, echoing the Muslim Brotherhood’s condemnation of the “Deal of the Century.”
HOW TO DESTROY A CIVILIZATION
There are lots of ways to kill off a civilization. Wars, politics, economic collapse. But what are the actual mechanics? It might be a useful thing to know whether or not we are killing ourselves off.
Ancient Rome is a good place to start. They had an advanced civilization. They had running water, sewers, flush toilets, concrete, roads, bridges, dams, an international highway system, mechanical reapers, water-powered mills, public baths, soap, banking, commerce, free trade, a legal code, a court system, science, literature, and a republican system of government. And a strong army to enforce stability and peace (Pax Romana). It wasn’t perfect, but they were on their way to modernity.
But Rome collapsed. I often wonder what would have happened if it hadn’t. Could we have avoided a thousand years of the Dark Ages?
What the hell happened to Rome?
Dictators. After 500 years, the famous Roman Republic ended with the dictator Julius Caesar taking power. Four hundred years later his progeny and usurpers ran the Empireinto the ground and Rome fell to invading barbarians.
Rome fell because the dictators ruined the Roman economy and the institutions that had made it prosperous. Rome was falling apart before the barbarian invasions.
How did the Caesars do that? They were profligate spenders. As emperors with absolute power usually do, they thought big: infrastructure (roads, temples, palaces), a huge bureaucracy, and, as the key to maintaining their power they had a very large, loyal, and well paid army. As a consequence, massive government spending far outstripped revenue. They had what today we call a deficit problem.
They did two disastrous things to solve their deficit.
First, they kept raising taxes which became punitive. Not caring much about the consequences to the merchants, small farmers, and peasants, they came up with new ways to squeeze money out of their citizens. Onerous taxes led to tax evasion. The government’s response was to double down and implement laws that restricted economic freedoms in order to raise even more taxes. Heavy taxes forced property owners, small and large, off the land. Large feudal estates run by political cronies arose in their place. Laws were enacted that forced peasants into virtual serfdom. Business owners and their children were prevented from changing jobs or towns. And, taxes had to be paid either in gold or in kind or they would lose everything. Gold became scarce. Gold money was only lawfully available to the government, army, and bureaucrats.
Second, they debased the currency which led to inflation. It was the equivalent of printing money to pay for things. The resulting bouts of high inflation destroyed much of commerce and agriculture. Like most dictators they thought they could stop rising prices by implementing price controls, but that just led to gold and goods disappearing from the economy. Black markets grew despite threats of capital punishment. Unemployment and homelessness rose. Their large welfare system kept running short of money. Commercial, legal, and moral institutions were falling apart. Corruption was endemic. The resulting booms and busts and depressions were destroying the economy.
By the time the Goth and Visigoth invaders came along, Rome was so weakened that they could not hold back the waves of invasions. At the end, Roman citizens saw the government as the enemy and the invading barbarians as their saviors. Rome fell in 410 CE.

This initiative [to “present a global plan of action against hate speech and hate crimes on a fast-track basis”] should be deeply concerning and is likely to serve only to silence critics of the UN, including its agenda on migration and the GCM.
The EU, for its part, according to statements by Hungary and Austria, does not appear to agree that implementing the Global Compact should be up to every EU member state. Instead, the EU is working on making it legally binding, even for those EU countries who have not adopted the Compact.
“A ‘secret document’ has been published on work by the European Commission’s legal service to formulate ‘lengthy and devious’ legal grounds for suggesting that the compact is, after all, mandatory for EU member states.” — Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto.
In December, world leaders of 165 countries adopted an ostensibly non-binding agreement that propagates a radical idea: that migration—for any reason—is something that needs to be promoted, enabled and protected.
The agreement is named the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), and now comes its implementation.
The UN has not wasted any time in setting this “non-binding” Compact in motion. Already at the Marrakesh Conference in December, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres launched the Migration Network (Network), a new addition to the UN bureaucracy, and seemingly intended to “ensure effective and coherent system‑wide support to the implementation of the Global Compact”. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) will serve as the coordinator and secretariat of all constituent parts of the Network in implementing the Global Compact.
The UN, in other words, has set its enormous bureaucratic infrastructure into full motion to see to it that the Compact will have maximum impact across the globe.
IOM director-general Antonio Vitorino has already sent a warning to critics of the UN migration agenda. “If we want to succeed in having a more humane and better world, we should resist the temptation of negative narratives that some want to spread about migration,” Vitorino said recently.
The Global Compact contains a provision, clearly signaling that any disagreement with its agenda will not be accepted and that the signatory states will work to dispel “misleading narratives that generate negative perceptions of migrants.” According to Objective 17 of the Global Compact, member states are obligated to:
UN Secretary General Antonio Gutteres, in a January press conference, took it even further, not limiting himself to speech about the Global Compact:
“We need to enlist every segment of society in the battle for values that our world faces today – and, in particular, to tackle the rise of hate speech, xenophobia and intolerance… Poisonous views are penetrating political debates and polluting the mainstream. Let’s never forget the lessons of the 1930s. Hate speech and hate crimes are direct threats to human rights, to sustainable development and to peace and security. That is why I have tasked my Special Adviser for the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng, to bring together a UN team to scale up our response, define a system-wide strategy and present a global plan of action against hate speech and hate crimes on a fast-track basis”.
This initiative should be deeply concerning and is likely to serve only to silence critics of the UN, including its agenda on migration and the Global Compact.
The EU, for its part, according to statements by Hungary and Austria, does not appear to agree that implementing the Global Compact should be up to every EU member state. Instead, the EU is working on making it legally binding, even for those EU countries who have not adopted the Compact.
“A ‘secret document’ has been published on work by the European Commission’s legal service to formulate ‘lengthy and devious’ legal grounds for suggesting that the compact is, after all, mandatory for EU member states”, saidHungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto. He added, “Although the document was not released the way the EC would have wanted it to be, the commission ‘has confirmed its existence’”.
Globalization and the ‘liberal idea’ have failed Europe and the US, while post-Cold War chaos is driving crises in Venezuela and North Korea, but was stopped in Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview to FT.
In a lengthy interview with the UK-based Financial Times on Wednesday, Putin candidly addressed questions about the Russian intervention in Syria – and lack thereof in Venezuela – as well as nuclear proliferation, North Korea, immigration policies in the US and Europe, Russian economy, relations with the UK, and the failure of what he called the “liberal idea” to provide for the people’s well-being.
Globalism has failed US middle class
Donald Trump is president of the US because he realized that the American middle class did not benefit from globalization, Putin argued, adding that this helps explain Trump’s economic policies and relations with partners and allies.
The obvious problem is the gap between the interests of the elites and the overwhelming majority of the people.
“He believes that the distribution of resources and benefits of globalization in the past decade was unfair to the US,” Putin said. Indeed, he argued, one of the major problems in the US but in Europe as well is that the “ruling elites have broken away from the people.”
‘Liberal idea has failed’
Whether one agrees with Trump’s idea to build a wall on the US-Mexico border or not, “he is at least looking for a solution,” Putin said, while the proponents of the so-called liberal values are “not doing anything,” insisting that everything is just fine even as unprecedented numbers of migrants come across their borders.
So, the liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population.
The same thing is happening in Europe, the Russian president said, noting that other leaders he spoke with saying nothing can be done because there are laws.
“Well, change the laws!” he said.
That does not mean the liberal ideas – or any others – should be outlawed or suppressed, Putin concluded.
Even the failed liberal idea, he said, “has the right to exist and it should even be supported in some things. But you should not think that it has the right to be the absolute dominating factor. That is the point. “
“Various ideas and various opinions should have a chance to exist and manifest themselves,” while keeping in mind the interests of the general public. “Then, it seems to me, we would be able to avoid major political upheavals and troubles.”
Just in time for the 2020 election, Twitter has come up with a new “policy” that is obviously intended to neuter the effectiveness of President Trump’s Twitter account. Right now, Trump has 61.4 million followers on Twitter, and his tweets regularly make headlines all over the world. Trump has been devastatingly effective on Twitter for years, and his social media strategy was one of the keys to his victory in 2016. Needless to say, the radical leftists that run Twitter were absolutely horrified by Trump’s upset victory, and they want to do whatever they can to make sure that such a thing never happens again. They started by deleting, shadow-banning and greatly suppressing the accounts of prominent conservatives. Personally, my own account has been shadow-banned for a very long time. I have over 16,000 followers, but if you check out my account you will notice that I barely get any retweets at all these days. However, a few years ago there was a ton of interaction with my tweets. An expert looked into it and found that just like so many other prominent conservatives, I had been shadowbanned. (READ MORE…)

Some evangelical Christians kiddingly state their position on Bible prophecy as “pan-tribulationist,” or “pan-millennial.” Then they give the punch line. “I believe it will all pan out.”
I understand what gives rise to such thinking. In order to understand Bible prophecy, you have to dig into scripture. “Rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV) requires diligence and effort. And to top it off, those who study prophecy sometimes come away with different opinions.
For that reason, many followers of Christ throw their hands in the air and say, “I’m not going to think about it. I trust God. He will take care of things. It will all pan out.”
Yes, God is sovereign. His side wins. But it is sad when people who love God ignore so much of His counsel. The Bible is a prophetic book. Some scholars say that one-fourth of it is prophecy. Others say the percentage is even higher — maybe one-third. Either way, prophecy is clearly important. If the only thing we need to know is that it will “all pan out,” then why did God put so much prophetic teaching in His word?
If you find prophecy intimidating, remember that all Bible doctrines seem inexhaustible to the human mind. Consider the Attributes of God. You can spend a lifetime on any one of His attributes — and barely scratch the surface. But just because we cannot exhaust a topic, does not mean we can’t have real knowledge of that topic. We can’t fully grasp God’s omnipotence, but because His word tells us about it, we can have a true and real understanding of it. Based on His word, we can know what it is, and we can rationally discuss it.
In John 14:3, Jesus said, “I will come again.” That is a clear and concise statement. He said it because He wants us to know it. We can trust those words. It doesn’t tell us everything about end-times prophecy, but it tells us something real — something we can build our lives on. Jesus is coming back!
Ironically, that’s where some so-called theologians begin to disagree. Jesus explained many times and in many ways that He will return. The fact that some dispute the obvious is no reason to doubt the obvious. “I will come again” is as clear as, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son….” (John 3:16)
Trust it. Lean on it. Find comfort in the knowledge.
At Christmas we often recite Isaiah 9:6-7.
“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever.” (NKJV)
Those verses foretell Christmas, but they don’t end there. They take us from the manger into eternity future — and give us loads of information about what must happen along the way.
The Book of Revelation reveals amazing and glorious things about Jesus. It takes things said about Him in the Old and New Testaments to their logical and astounding conclusions. I hate to think that anyone would ignore Revelation because naysayers have convinced them that they can’t understand it. You may not understand all of it, but just reading it will build your faith and enlarge your vision of Christ.
Prophecies in Daniel give us tremendous evidence that the Bible could only be written under the inspiration of God. In Matthew 24, Jesus gave one of the longest of His recorded speeches, and it was all about His Second Coming.
More and more, I hear people say, “I heard all that stuff years ago. Nothing happened, so I don’t believe it.” In saying things like that, they are unwittingly fulfilling yet another sign of the coming Day of the Lord.
2 Peter 3 says,
“In the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.’” (2 Peter 3:3-4)
Verses 8-10 say,
“But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief.”
Bible prophecy laid out the first coming of Jesus with perfect accuracy and in stunning detail. As we look around at our own time, we can already see that the details about the Lord’s Second Coming are just as perfect and just as stunning. And we are seeing it all in our own time with our own eyes.
We live in one of history’s most amazing moments. And you’re here to witness it. So, watch and study. Don’t miss the joy and amazement of the times you live in.
