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.
US Want to Sink China Navy As Soon as Possible

US Want to Sink China Navy As Soon as Possible While the Navy has continually contested Chinese control of the area amid the latter’s push to build artificial island chains in the region, Marine Corps officials previously told USNI News that the Pentagon needed “integrated naval operations … to take an island somewhere – natural or manmade.” The Marine Corps is looking for a new long-range anti-ship missile “as fast as possible” amid a major transformation of the service’s naval warfare concepts, Commandant Gen. Robert Neller told the U.S. Naval Institute last week. The Corps has steadily developed a new naval warfare doctrine centered around intensive missile fights conducted between constellations of small islands, and officials previously detailed several options for up-gunning amphibious combat vehicles and equipping flat-tops with new weapon systems to protect against incoming kinetic threats.

DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
THE THREE DAY THREE NIGHT MYSTERY
QUESTION: It seems that if Jesus were buried Thursday afternoon, he wouldn’t have been in the grave 3 full days and 3 full nights. For that to have happened, he would have had to been crucified on Wednesday. Any thoughts?
ANSWER: You’re adding to the text. It doesn’t say three full days and three full nights. Literally, the Greek is three day periods and three night periods. Also, the Jewish day goes from sunset to sunset, and night precedes day. He died on Thursday about 3 in the afternoon, being on the cross since morning, and was immediately laid in the tomb. Day 1. At sunset, it became Friday night. Night 1. The next morning was Friday day. Day 2. Then at sunset, it was Saturday night. Night 2. Then Saturday day. Day 3. Then Sunday night, Night 3. By Sunday morning He had risen from the grave.
MORE ON THE THREE DAY THREE NIGHT MYSTERY
QUESTION: First of all let me congratulate you for teaching correctly that there were two Sabbaths in the week of Jesus death and resurrection. The Church as a whole misses this completely. Please allow me to share a couple of scriptures that shed additional light on this subject.
Mark 16:1 says that after the Sabbath was past they bought the spices that they might anoint Him. Luke 23:56 says that they returned and prepared the spices then rested on the Sabbath. Luke 24:1 They came to the tomb very early on the first day of the week bringing the spices that they had prepared.
A Thursday “Unleavened Bread” High Day Sabbath rest followed by a busy Friday of buying and preparing the spices then a Saturday weekly Sabbath rest is the only way that these two Scriptures can both be true. Your scenario of back to back Sabbaths on Fri and Sat after a Thus sundown burial leaves zero time for Mark16:1 and Luke 23:56 to take place.
ANSWER: It looks like you’re advocating a Wednesday crucifixion. I alluded to several objections I have to this in the article, and your scenario gives me a chance to explain one of them in greater detail; the problem with having a regular day between the two Sabbaths.
In Israel, denying burial to the dead was and is considered to be disrespectful to the body. Therefore Jewish law requires that every effort be made to complete the burial process within 24 hours of death. Only a Sabbath can extend this time. Had Friday not been a special Sabbath the women would have completed the burial then, as required by law. Only consecutive Sabbaths on Friday and Saturday would have allowed them to delay their work until Sunday.
As you indicate, Luke 23:56 says the women saw where the Lord’s body was put, then went home to prepare spices and perfumes, and then rested on the Sabbath. Mark 16:1 says when the Sabbath was over they bought spices to anoint the body. Mark 16:2 and Luke 24:1 say very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they went to the tomb.
I believe Luke 23:56 refers to the special Sabbath John mentioned (John 19:31) which was the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened bread. Mark 16:1 refers to the Saturday Sabbath which ended at sundown Saturday evening. The women would have been able to purchase the additional spices as soon as the sun set on Saturday evening and have them ready to use when they set out for the tomb early Sunday morning.
Even today, the end of the Sabbath in Israel means shops and restaurants can re-open and typically do a brisk Saturday evening business. This would especially be true with back to back Sabbaths.

RUSSIA GRABS THE REINS ON MIDEAST PEACE
Micky Aharonson – http://www.israelhayom.com/opinions/russia-is-grabbing-the-reins-on-mideast-peace/
In one of his first comments as Palestinian Authority Prime Minister, Mohammed Shtayyeh said other countries, chief among them Russia, would support Palestinian rejection of the Trump administration’s “deal of the century” for Israeli-Palestinian peace. It wasn’t for nothing that Shtayyeh highlighted Russia.
In recent years, Russia has expressed an interest in getting involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, due to its own regional and global interests of restoring its status as a superpower. Hence Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recently refloated the idea of hosting talks between Israel and the Palestinians in Moscow. Over the years, Moscow has on multiple occasions proposed advancing a peace agreement via a Moscow summit, but Israel has preferred to let the United States spearhead the process. The current Russian interest in the conflict is a reflection of Moscow’s ambitions to establish a presence in the Middle East as a mediator, within the prism of a zero-sum game against the Americans, and amid the view that U.S. clout on the Arab street is waning. Russia, from its perspective, assumes this activity is only beneficial: The cost, in any practical or abstract sense, is insignificant, and the expected returns of restoring Russia to prominence in the Arab and Muslim world are self-evident to the Kremlin.
Russia also illustrates its desire to be a mediator on the global stage by saying and doing certain things to paint itself as a critical cog in any peace process. This always occurs simultaneous to, or immediately after, the Americans unveil their own initiatives. In 2017, for example, as talks were progressing over moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, Russia announced its desire, as a member of the Quartet, to advance a peace deal. At the time, Russia issued a surprise declaration that it recognizes west Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel, regardless of the establishment of a Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem. The Kremlin also supported direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians and expressed its interest in facilitating an agreement. The declaration emphasized Russia as a key player due to its membership in the Quartet and its permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council. Lavrov also denounced the “deal of the century” and stressed Russia’s commitment to a peace deal based on U.N. resolutions and the Arab peace initiative.
In recent months, as the American “deal of the century” has gained more exposure, Moscow has intensified its efforts to advance intra-Palestinian reconciliation, including repeatedly inviting Palestinian factions for talks in Moscow. Hamas is shunned to varying degrees by the U.S. and European Union, and Russia wants to signal it can hold dialogue with the PA and the regime in Gaza.
Last month, for instance, Hamas representatives flew to Moscow and were given the opportunity to present an alternative solution to the conflict. Among the principles put forth were the rejection of the “deal of the century” and opposition to any form of normalization with Israel. Although these principles are irrelevant to negotiations with Israel, voicing them in Russia strengthens the narrative that Moscow is grabbing the reins as the only mediator capable of communicating with all the Palestinian factions, especially when they are all united in opposing the “deal of the century.”
The United States and Israel must assume from past experience that as the “deal of the century” approaches its deadline, two processes will take place. First, we can assume that ignoring Russia will provoke a Russian attempt to enlist an Arab and international lobby against the U.S. proposal. Additionally, Russia will advance its own alternatives for resolving the conflict, which the Palestinians can view as a basis for negotiations, such as the summit in Moscow, the Quartet path or any other platform that will include Russia as a member of the international “club.”
This situation makes it increasingly likely for a scenario to unfold in which Israel, not the Palestinians, is painted as the rejectionist side, particularly in light of the fact that a plan such as the one presented by Hamas in Moscow in completely unfeasible from Israel’s perspective. In all likelihood, if it were possible to establish an international framework for a peace accord, which would include Russia, such as the Quartet, it would probably rise to the forefront. Because, among other things, Russia has expanded its leverage with the Arab world and it very much wants to partake in the prestigious “club” of nations.
THE GREAT MARCH TO WAR?
Tovah Lazaroff – https://www.jpost.com/printarticle.aspx?id=585077
WILL THE GREAT MARCH OF RETURN LEAD TO A GAZA WAR?
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to the Gaza border to see tanks and soldiers Thursday almost seemed reassuring in a week that began with a direct rocket hit on a home in the center of the country.
The sight of that demolished house and the miraculous survival of the seven family members inside served as a reminder to the Israeli public that they were not immune from the long and deadly arm of the slow brewing conflict in Gaza.
With visions of possible death randomly raining from the skies, Netanyahu’s statement of a possible extensive military campaign in the Gaza Strip almost made it seem as if the government and the IDF finally planned to take steps to end the threat from the Hamas-ruled enclave.
Right-wing Israeli politicians have claimed that only lack of political or diplomatic will has kept the IDF from rooting out Hamas in Gaza and destroying its cache of weapons and rockets.
New Right Party head and Education Minister Naftali Bennett called for the IDF “to open the gates of hell” against Hamas.
United Nations Ambassador Danny Danon warned this week during a Security Council debate, “If the terror from Gaza continues, the Hamas leadership will feel the strength of the IDF and be buried in the tunnels of Gaza.”
But if Israel could easily bury Hamas, it would have done so already. In the last decade, the IDF has fought three wars against Hamas: in 2009, in 2012 and in 2014. In each conflict, it could have claimed victory, with Gaza bearing the brunt of the casualty counts and the destroyed homes.
But when the dust of war settled it was clear that far from vanquishing Hamas, its military might had only grown, from a terror organization that could barely hit Sderot 18 years ago to one that can fire deadly missiles beyond Tel Aviv.
Short of carpet bombing Gaza, or reoccupying it, another military campaign is more likely to continue the pattern of ratcheting up more demolitions and death, but is unlikely to unseat or disarm Hamas.
Netanyahu, therefore, has been slow to seek a military solution. As a result, in the last year, Hamas and Israel have been entwined in a slow dance that comes ever closer to the precipice. The country has repeatedly seemed to be on the edge of war with Gaza rockets flying like sudden sun showers that dissipate almost as quickly as they fell.
The slow, on-again, off-again drum beat of war has been helped by the Great March of Return, which began last March 30 as a six-week event and has yet to end.
Hamas was able to siphon off the frustration of the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Gaza – made worse by Palestinian Authority sanctions—into weekly protests against Israel.
The low-level violence, including infiltration attempts, explosive devices, burning tires, stone throwing and Molotov cocktails, was enough to warrant a response but not enough to trigger a war.
The incendiary devices launched from Gaza against Israel which burned thousands of hectares of fields and forests prompted IDF retaliatory strikes but did not warrant a full-scale conflict.
IDF response to the protesters, which has included live fire and tear gas, has led to more than 270 deaths and close to 30,000 injuries, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.
In the diplomatic arena, the Palestinian Authority was able to score points by painting the protests as peaceful, and highlighting the disproportionate nature of the violence.
The success culminated this month with the United Nations Human Rights Council creating a list of Israelis it holds to be culpable of war crimes along the Gaza border, with an eye to handing the list to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
In the field, however, the march has not changed the deteriorating situation in Gaza for the Palestinians.
Rather, as time has gone on, the ongoing protests and riots have begun to play the role of a match in a dry field. At a time of high tension – such as now, when Hamas and Israel appear on the brink of a new conflict – violence along the border, including this weekend, could provide the spark that pushes the IDF and Hamas into a full-blown war.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group is preparing a “significant” terrorist attack to undermine the ceasefire arrangement between Israel and Hamas, Yediot Aharonot reported on Monday..
According to the report, security forces deployed along the Gaza security fence have noticed “unusual” activity by the group’s military wing, leading security officials to believe that the group might be planning a rocket barrage or breaching of the security fence in the coming hours or days.
Islamic Jihad has denied the report, saying that “there is no truth to these reports. From time to time Israel tries to create confusion in the Palestinian arena, but these attempts will fail.”
Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), the second largest group in the Gaza Strip after Hamas, has been assessed by military intelligence as a factor increasing the risk of an escalation in the blockaded coastal enclave, since it is not under the direct control of Hamas and acts independently for its own interests.
The group is believed to be behind the last rocket barrage towards Israel on Saturday night when five rockets were fired toward southern Israeli communities after a relatively non-violent day when some 40,000 Palestinians rioted along the security fence marking Land Day and the first anniversary of the “Great Return” marches.
PIJ is responsible for several violent attacks on IDF troops during the marches, including the first death of a soldier along the Gaza border since Operation Protective Edge in 2014.
Staff Sgt. Aviv Levi was killed after he was shot in the chest by sniper fire near Kibbutz Kissufim. Another soldier was struck by sniper fire in the area less than a week after Levi was killed. In late January, an IDF officer was lightly wounded in the same area after his helmet was struck by sniper fire along the Gaza Strip security fence, in an attack for which PIJ claimed responsibility.
The IDF has warned that both Hamas and PIJ have restored their military capabilities to their pre-2014 strength, and expect that in the next war the southern communities bordering the Strip would be incessantly pounded with rockets and mortar attacks.
On Monday morning, Israel expanded the allowed fishing zone for Gazans to a range of between 22 km. to 28 km. after it was completely closed last week as the result of a long-range rocket fired by Gazan terrorists, which destroyed a family home in central Israel, wounding eight civilians.
The rocket attack sparked a round of violence between Israel and Hamas and led to Israel deploying three infantry brigades and an artillery unit to enhance the Southern Command, as well as canceling the leave of all combat units currently assigned to the command.
A tense calm has been holding in the South, with reports of a ceasefire deal mediated by Egypt in the works.
According to reports, part of the deal was the expansion of the fishing zone which, according to Yediot is a range not seen since the Second Intifada.
The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) said that the expansion of the fishing zone is part of a policy to prevent humanitarian deterioration in the Gaza Strip and of a “policy that distinguishes between terrorism and the civilian population.”
“The implementation of the move is conditional on the fishermen in Gaza honoring the agreements. It will not be possible to deviate from the ranges that were agreed upon, and any deviation will be handled accordingly,” COGAT said.
In addition to the expanded fishing zone, Israel reopened the Kerem Shalom and Erez border crossings on Sunday after they were closed last Monday.
In recent years, Russia has expressed an interest in getting involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, due to its own regional and global interests of restoring its status as a superpower.
Hence Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recently refloated the idea of hosting talks between Israel and the Palestinians in Moscow. Over the years, Moscow has on multiple occasions proposed advancing a peace agreement via a Moscow summit, but Israel has preferred to let the United States spearhead the process.

First, in 2014, a powerful Islamic terrorist group called ISIS (Pres. Obama called it ISIL or the Levant) captured several cities and towns in Iraq.
The original Levant was a geographical area near the Mediterranean Sea in the Middle East that included Cyprus, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, part of Saudi Arabia, part of Turkey, part of Egypt, part of Iraq and all of Israel.
Other Islamic terrorist groups quickly joined ISIS, and the group soon started calling itself a Muslim Caliphate (a Muslim kingdom).
God promised to bless those that bless Israel and to curse those that curse Israel.
He also promised that Israel will not be defeated at the end of the age.
In mid-March 2019, the ISIS Caliphate came to an end, and Israel still stands.
God’s Word is being fulfilled.
Second, the Bible says the nations around Israel will claim the mountains of Israel, slander Israel and make God angry at the end of the age (Ezek. 36:1-7).
God added that He will be on Israel’s side; Israel will possess the mountains and grow crops on them.
Israel captured the Golan Heights in 1967, annexed them in 1981, and is growing crops on some of them.
On Mar. 21, 2019, the U.S. recognized the Golan Heights as sovereign Israeli territory, and God’s Word is being fulfilled.
Third, a Syrian official said, “The Syrian people remain committed to the liberation of the Golan Heights by all means at its disposal.”
The Word of God says Syria and Israel will get into a war at the end of the age; and Damascus, Syria, will cease to exist in one night (Isa. 17).
Syria would be wise to consider what has happened to ISIS and to read the above about the nations around Israel claiming the mountains and making God angry.
Syria won’t liberate the mountains of Israel because God has already liberated them and permanently returned them to His people Israel (Ezek. 36).
Fourth, on Mar. 22, 2019, Russia, Iran and Syria condemned U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and Turkey quickly did the same.
A large deposit of oil and natural gas has been discovered in the Golan Heights, and some think these nations will try to take it.
It is clear that these nations will be part of a group that will attack Israel from the north in the latter years and latter days to take a spoil and a prey. This will anger God, and they will perish on the mountains of Israel (Ezek. 38:12, 15, 18-23).
Fifth, on Mar. 24, 2019, it was reported that the U.S. and Israel are anticipating a breakout of violence along Israel’s border with Syria and Lebanon at any moment due to U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
As a result, the U.S. has sent reinforcements to six U.S. bases in Iraq and Syria.
Sixth, on Mar. 21, 2019, U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo was in Israel when Pres. Trump recognized the Golan Heights as sovereign Israeli territory.
It was the day before the Jewish holiday called Purim, and he was interviewed by Chris Mitchell of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN).
Mr. Mitchell said, “Jews worldwide and here in Jerusalem are talking about the fact that Esther 2,500 years ago saved the Jewish people with God’s help from Haman” (a Persian or Iranian official that wanted to destroy the Jews).
Mr. Mitchell added, “And now, 2,500 years later, there’s a new Haman here in the Middle East that wants to eradicate the Jewish people just like Haman did: the state of Iran.”
Then, Mr. Mitchell asked, “Could it be that President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace?”
Mr. Pompeo replied, “As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible.”
Israel will survive because God promised to protect her, and it is not too far-fetched to believe that God raised up Pres. Trump for Israel’s sake.

What appears to be Beijing’s latest military flex in the South China Sea – the contested collection of shoals and reefs that plays a crucial role in global trade and also contains vast untapped gas reserves – has reportedly set off “alarm bells” in Manila, just as the Philippines and the US were preparing to begin a round of military drills.
According to Bloomberg, Philippines personnel have lodged a complaint with a joint Chinese-Flippino commission created to resolve disputes in the region, after authorities counted a mass of 200 Chinese ships around the Thitu, the second-largest island in the Spratly Islands.
With a trade deal still in limbo, military tensions in the South China Sea have intensified as the US Navy has stepped up the pace of its “freedom of navigation” operations, while Beijing has stepped up its threatening rhetoric toward Taiwan and carried out more military drills.
A Philippines official said the ships appeared to be part of China’s sea militia. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman Salvador Panelo said he would meet China’s ambassador and ask for an explanation for the bolstered presence, after the Philippine Foreign Affairs Department lodged its protest with the committee.
However, the ships massing around Thitu (which is known by Pagasa in the Philippines) wasn’t China’s only provocation. Taiwan accused Beijing of sending Navy ships across the median line of the Taiwan Strait, violating a long-held tacit agreement.
At 11 a.m., March 31, 2 PLAAF J-11 jets violated the long-held tacit agreement by crossing the median line of the #Taiwan Strait. It was an intentional, reckless & provocative action. We’ve informed regional partners & condemn #China for such behavior.

In 2015, a 16-year-old student from Jiangsu, China, tried to board a train.
She couldn’t even purchase a ticket.
The student, Zhong Pei, tried enrolling in classes at her university. But she was not allowed to do that either.
Zhong had committed a serious crime: She was guilty of being related to someone else.
Her father had killed two people and died in a car accident. So the Chinese government blacklisted her as “dishonest.”
It took her four months before she was able to overturn the decision and go to her university.
What Zhong experienced was the result of testing for China’s new “Social Credit System.”
The SCS aims to be a unified program that provides a “social credit score” for every one of China’s 1.3 billion citizens.
The plan, however, does not stop there. And the Chinese government has already laid the framework for the dystopian future.
Laws from 2012 and 2016 require internet companies to retain customers’ real names and information.
There will be no opting out from this future.
In 2020, the system will become the Social Credit System (SCS). And it will be owned and operated entirely by the Chinese state government.
The SCS will take into account not only purchases, but also hobbies, your lifestyle, and even who you hang out with.
If you raise a child, attend government events, or do well at your job – things considered ideal for a model citizen – your social credit score will go up.
If you drink too much, play too many video games, or speak ill of the government – your social credit score will go down.
It’s a national database that will hold information on every citizen.
It will assess information as innocent as whether an academic degree was actually earned. And as personal as if a female is supposed to be taking birth control.
Punishment is already happening on a broad scale. Chinese authorities have already banned more than 10 million people deemed “untrustworthy” from boarding flights and high-speed trains.
The social credit system is a tool to get people to fall perfectly in line.
In the United States.
The digital surveillance
The national credit score system
The systems of reward and punishment
The government-knows-best attitude
The electronic purchasing data
The ubiquitous social networks
Think about it. China started with Alibaba and Tencent.
In the United States, we have Amazon and Facebook and Google.
They know everything you read, see, search, buy, and say.
Your Android or iPhone already tracks your location and reports it hundreds of times per day.
And that information is already being used for complete censorship.
In 2018, Facebook began a program that assigns every user a reputation score, which predicts their “trustworthiness.” Sound familiar?
Here is how China implemented the Social Credit Score system in just under five years:
They subjected all online behaviour to intense study.
They collected, stored and analysed all social media and banking information.
They began to severely regulate the freedom to travel.
And here’s what’s going on in the United States…
Police threat-scoring algorithms are used to determine who the police should be tracking and surveilling. Social media is already being used in these algorithms.
For the past decade, the NSA has been gathering information on people’s social media, locations, friends, and who they travel with.
The agency can enrich the data with bank information, social media information, voter information and even GPS location information.
The TSA has a rapidly expanding “no-fly” list. The list has no government accountability, and there is no recourse – unless, of course, you’re a powerful government official who ends up on it.
Indeed, a report from the World Privacy Forum indicates that in such a credit score system “error rates and false readings become a big issue.”
Never underestimate the currency butterfly effect. This has huge implications for the yuan, which is the currency of China. The Social Credit Score will have incredible implications on business, government and ultimately, the strength of the currency.
The world has never seen anything like this. And it’s only going to grow. China is the first country to implement this and certainly won’t be the last. You know others will do so to maintain power, increase power and manipulate power.
Pay attention to this and it will be very important in the coming years, and will have significant indirect effects to your portfolio.
Last year, Chinese authorities said that part of the program would be to freeze the assets of anyone deemed to be “dishonest.”
Imagine all of your assets suddenly disappearing because a red light camera read your license plate wrong.
The infrastructure for this system is already in place in the United States.
It’s just not about train rides or university classes anymore.
Any individual not aligning with the current social and governmental norms will face poverty… homelessness… starvation… or worse.
Under the new system of life by government approval, survival becomes simple:
Obey… or die.
With Russia actively dumping US dollars and buying gold at the fastest paced in decades, the writing is on the wall when it comes to what the Kremlin thinks of any possibility for a detente in the painfully strained US-Russian relations.
And with Russia now clearly seeking to end monetary ties with a dollar-denominated “west”, there is just one alternative – China. Which is why it will probably not come as a surprise that several Russian banks joined the China International Payments System (CIPS) also known as China’s “SWIFT”, to ease operations between the two countries, according to a senior official at the Central Bank of Russia (CBR).
“As for the cooperation on payment systems, a range of banks are already connected to CIPS, allowing to facilitate payments routing procedure,” Vladimir Shapovalov, who heads a division dealing with foreign regulators at the CBR’s international cooperation department, said earlier this week during the international Russian-Chinese forum.
Meanwhile, as RT writes, the regulator hopes that in turn, Chinese counterparts will pay more attention to Russia’s own SWIFT alternative, the SPFS (System for Transfer of Financial Messages), as “it can further boost bilateral trade”, the official added.
As RT adds, Russia has been actively demonstrating the SPFS network, which was created in 2014 in response US threats of disconnecting Russia from SWIFT, to foreign partners, including China after its export version was finished late last year.
The first system transaction involving a non-bank enterprise, was made by Russian oil major Rosneft in December 2017. Some 500 participants, with major Russian financial institutions and companies, have already joined. And with Europe contemplating alternatives to SWIFT in order to keep funding the Iran regime in light of its exclusion from the dollar-based monetary system following Trump’s reimposition of Iranian sanctions, it would land a major blow to the US Dollar’s reserve status if Brussels announced that it, too, would be joining either the Chinese or Russian alternative to dollar hegemony, a process which based on reserve managers’ declining allocations to US dollars…
… is already taking place.
Bible Bite: We Will Meet Him in the Clouds
With Amir Tsarfati & Barry Stagner
At the last trumpet, what’s going to happen?
Behold! I tell you a mystery. Not all of us are going to sleep, which means to die. But all of us are going to change. And that corruptible body will wear incorruption, which means immortality,
which means your body will no longer die. You know, I put a picture of me 10 years ago and I put it right next to me, man I’m dying. I know that. I look way better. And you need to understand it’s a natural thing. And when we will change and this body will no longer die, that’s when we’re out of here.
So He promised that we’re going to change and then in 1st Thessalonians Chapter Four it says, when that happens,
the dead in Christ will rise first. And we that are alive will be caught up in the air and meet them in the clouds. And that’s where we’ll meet Jesus. And He will take us, and we will never, ever leave Him again. Or He will never, ever leave us again. We will be with Him forever and ever.
So, Jesus will come halfway. We will come halfway. He’s gonna take us to Heaven and we’re going to be in Heaven. In this Heaven. Leaving this Earth, but guess what? We are going to come back with Him to this Earth.
In an age where the subject of Bible prophecy is ignored and even disparaged, it is noteworthy that though Paul was only in Thessaloniki for “three Sabbaths” (Acts 17:2) he communicated truths concerning the Rapture of the Church and the coming “Day of the Lord” during his brief visit to a newly established church.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
“…But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words…”
The early church knew, believed, and taught the bodily resurrection of the “dead in Christ” so much so that they often referred to death as “sleep”, meaning temporary. In his three Sabbath visit to the city, before Paul was run out of town by unbelieving Jews, he wanted this infant church to know what was coming in the future and for them to be awaiting the return of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It is also helpful that we recognise that in his letters to the church at Corinth Paul was writing to a Gentile church, many of which were battling letting go of past religious traditions and carnal behaviours. He told this church, that was filled with confusion, about the Rapture of the Church and their future hope of Heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:50-53
“…Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality…”
Paul, having told a newly formed, struggling and confused church about Bible prophecy eliminates the argument that Bible prophecy is too confusing and is best avoided in the Church. The truth is that Bible prophecy is comforting and encouraging to the Christian. Paul told the church at Thessaloniki that he wanted them to know the status of their loved ones who were dead in Christ because he did not want them to sorrow like those who have no hope of Heaven.
Think about our own lives-the mirror reveals our march towards death as our bodies deteriorate and the change from our youthful appearance can be seen year by year. Immortality in an incorruptible body is a great source of hope and fills us with a longing for the day of the trumpet blast and an instantaneous and eternal exchange of these lowly bodies for glorious ones. (Philippians 3:21)
“…For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you…”
In chapter 1 of Titus, Paul told Titus; “I left you alone in Crete to set in order the things that are lacking.” He then says in chapter 2 that the Christians in Crete should be looking for the “blessed hope” of the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
In a time where most of the nations of the world are gathered in opposition to the nation of Israel, in a time where the Church is largely viewed as the enemy of a more enlightened culture and in a time where even the Church is divided on the subject of what lies ahead in the future, it is good to know and remember that this world is not our home; this life is not all there is. There is a pain and problem-free future that awaits us in which we will never grow old, never experience sickness or disease or feel sorrow or pain, including the emotional pains of life that often stain our faces with tears.
How do we know? Bible prophecy.
“…Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying,
“Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus!
