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 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.

WHAT ARE THE LEADERS OF THE WORLD DOING
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
“Let us break their chains, ” they say, “and throw off their fetters.” (Psalm 2:1-3)
For a time it will seem as if the whole world is united against God, and that overthrowing Him is actually possible. But they won’t realise Who they’re up against.
The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill ” (Psalm 2:4-6)
 
JESUS CHRIST “TRUE” CHURCH WILL ENDURE TILL THE END (RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH):
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:

——————————————-

JOINING A LOCAL CONGREGATION

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/joining-a-local-congregation/
QUESTION:    I am joining the church I have been attending by profession of faith (received Christ as my personal Lord and Savior) but my husband refuses to join saying he does not believe in some of the doctrines of this church, such as the rapture. He believes that upon death, we are present with the Lord and we do not have to wait for the graves to open to be in His presence. It is kind of confusing to me. He also says the church celebrates Easter and not the Passover. On this account, I see his point but also know the Church does not celebrate the pagan rituals but rather celebrates Christ’s victory over death.
ANSWER:    Your husband is right in the sense that when believers die their spirits go directly to be with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8). Their bodies are buried in the ground and quickly decay. At the Rapture those spirits will be reunited with a new physical body that will never die. At the same time, living believers will be made immortal in the bodies they have. Together we’ll all go to our home in the New Jerusalem to be with the Lord.
All Christian churches celebrate Easter instead of Passover. But in the last few years many Christians have observed what’s called a Messianic Passover that emphasises the prophecies of Jesus contained in the Passover celebration. There’s probably one near enough to you that you could attend if you like.
Joining a local congregation is not mandatory, but if you desire to belong to one with your husband this information could help you alleviate his concern.
 

JOINING A CHURCH

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/joining-a-church/
QUESTION:    In the home study group I attend, we discovered that I was the only one who has become a member of our church. Everyone else has attended this church for at least three years, but no one else has made a commitment to join it. Other than Hebrews 10:25 that commands us not to cease having fellowship together, are there any places in the Bible that call for joining a particular congregation?
ANSWER:    Church membership is not a Biblical requirement. It’s a matter of personal choice. From God’s point of view, there is only one true Church and all who receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior are automatically part of it, regardless of where they decide to worship Him.
I love the answer that the head of one major organization gave to the question, “How do I join this church?” He said, “You can’t join it. You have to be born into it.” That’s the way the Lord intended it.
 

THE FATE OF FALSE TEACHERS

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/the-fate-of-false-teachers/
QUESTION:    What do you interpret the bible as saying the fate will be for those pastors/ministers, etc. who knowingly,enthusiastically teach false doctrine and who are leading their sheep astray into the world church movement, especially those who say the bible/christianity needs to be re-written? Is this not sin against the holy sprit?
ANSWER:    The Bible has much to say about false teachers.
We’ll start with James 3:1 .
Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.
2 Peter 2:1-3 says:
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them–bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
John wrote,
They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us. (1 John 2:19)
And Paul warned,
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. (2 Cor. 11:13-15)
I believe it’s possible for any believer to be honestly mistaken is his or her interpretation of a passage, but when someone in a pastoral/teaching teaching position willfully promotes false doctrine that disputes or denies the veracity of Scripture, it proves that they were never saved to begin with (1 John 2:19) and are in fact representing Satan (2 Cor. 11:13-15).

HOW THE ‘JORDAN OPTION’ WILL AFFECT ISRAEL

By Ted Belman – https://www.americanthinker.com
The “Jordan Option,” as articulated by Mudar Zahran, the secretary general of the Jordan Opposition Coalition, and me, anticipates that King Abdullah will abdicate, willingly or otherwise, and that Mudar Zahran will take over Jordan as its leader.
This option was first disclosed to the public shortly after the inauguration of President Trump in The Ultimate Alternate Israel-Palestine Solution. What is unique about this iteration of the Option was that it called for King Abdullah to abdicate and for Mudar Zahran to become Jordan’s leader. Save for that, the Jordan Option had been proposed on and off since 1980.
A year ago, I asked, “Will Trump’s Deal of the Century Solve the Middle East’s Problems?” The article refines the original plan and references Trump’s Deal of the Century.
A few months later, I wrote “The Jordan Option: The Only Game in Town”:
The Jordan Option, as proposed by Mudar Zahran, leader of the Jordanian Opposition Coalition, and me, recognizes that nothing acceptable to Israel can be achieved by negotiating with King Abdullah or Mahmoud Abbas. This option is very much in line with Trump’s Deal of the Century, which considers Jordan to be the Palestinian state east of the Jordan River and Israel, the Jewish state west of the river.
Nothing will happen with the Deal of the Century until Zahran becomes the leader of Jordan. In fact, the Deal of the Century is the Jordan Option.
Zahran is very open as to what his intentions are once in power.
  • He wants to work with Israel rather than be in confrontation with Israel.
  • Jordan will grant citizenship to all Palestinians wherever they may live.
  • Jordan will have an open-door policy for the return of all Palestinians.
  • Jordan will replace UNRWA as the provider of services to all Palestinian refugees, of which 2 million live west of the Jordan River.
  • Jordan will invite the said two million refugees to emigrate to Jordan to receive the said services, which include social security, health care, and education.
  • The peace treaty between Jordan and Israel will be reaffirmed, as will the Jordan River as the international boundary.
  • The Palestinian textbooks will be rewritten by a joint task force of Jews and Arabs to reflect in the main the Jewish narrative with appropriate nods to the Arab perspective. These new textbooks will be studied by all Palestinians in Jordan and Israel.
This new reality will affect Israel in the following way:
  • The Palestinians living west of the River will no longer be stateless. They will be Jordanian citizens living in Israel as foreign residents.
  • Thus, Israel will be able to extend its sovereignty over the entire area without the need to grant citizenship to the Palestinians living west of the river. The reason this is so is because when you annex land or claim sovereignty over it, there is no law that obligates you to grant citizenship to citizens of foreign countries who may live there.
  • These Jordanian-Palestinians will be entitled to live in Areas A and B as foreign residents with full autonomy, just as they do now.
  • Over the next few years, Jordan will replace the P.A. as the administrator of these areas, and the P.A. will wither away.
  • These foreign residents will be incentivized to emigrate to Jordan with funds provided by the Gulf States and the U.S., as announced in the Bahrain Workshop.
  • The Oslo Accords will be subsumed in the Jordan-Israel Peace Treaty.
  • Hebron, which is an Area A, will be absorbed into Israel and will no longer be an autonomous area.
  • Gaza will be treated as an autonomous area A. Hamas will be outlawed, and Jordan will administer it, as it will be doing for all Area A.
  • There will be no need for a peace process thereafter.
  • The Palestinian state will be Jordan and not some new creation west of the Jordan River.
Thus, the Jordan Option if implemented will be the biggest game-changer in the Middle East since the Six-Day War.

THE EMP THREAT

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By  Stefan Stanford 
CYBER WARFARE COULD BRING THE TOTAL COLLAPSE OF SOCIETY, RAMPANT DISEASES AND MASS STARVATION
Cyber Warfare Could Bring The Total Collapse Of Society, Rampant Diseases And Mass Starvation By Dr. William R. Graham, Ambassador R. James Woolsey And Dr. Peter Vincent Pry for All News Pipeline
America’s Achilles Heel Might Be The Target Of The Greatest Revolution In Military Affairs In History, Rendering Obsolete Most Traditional Instruments Of Military Power
President Donald Trump deserves America’s gratitude for his Executive Order on Coordinating National Resilience to Electromagnetic Pulses, signed on March 26, 2019. This White House executive order, coordinated with all relevant departments and agencies of the U.S. Government, culminates 20 years of effort by scientists and strategists to protect the national electric power grid and other life-sustaining critical national infrastructures—for example, communications, transportation, business and finance, food and water—from the existential threat of a natural or manmade electromagnetic pulse (EMP).
EMP threatens the foundations of modern electronic civilization that sustains the lives of millions:
Natural EMP from a solar superstorm could blackout electric grids and critical life-sustaining infrastructures worldwide. 
Nuclear EMP attack from the high-altitude (30 kilometers or higher) detonation of a single nuclear weapon could blackout electric grids and critical life-sustaining infrastructures for much or all of the continental United States. 
Non-nuclear EMP weapons (such as radiofrequency weapons), available to terrorists and criminals, can be used singly to pose localized threats, or in larger numbers to make a coordinated attack that could blackout the national U.S. electric power grid.
EMP is considered the ultimate “cyber weapon” in the military doctrines and plans of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran, that describe a revolutionary new way of warfare combining EMP, cyber-attacks, and sabotage of electric grids and critical infrastructures to achieve victory.
The White House EMP Executive Order responds to the blue ribbon Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack, established by Congress in 2001, that has been warning that:
“A long-term outage owing to EMP could disable most critical supply chains, leaving the U.S. population living in conditions similar to centuries past, prior to the advent of electric power. In the 1800s, the U.S. population was less than 60 million, and those people had many skills and assets necessary for survival without today’s infrastructure. An extended blackout today could result in the death of a large fraction of the American people through the effects of societal collapse, disease, and starvation. While national planning and preparation for such events could help mitigate the damage, few such actions are currently underway or even being contemplated.”(EMP Commission Executive Report, Assessing the Threat from EMP Attack, July 2017)
The EMP Commission, comprising the Free World’s foremost scientific and strategic experts on EMP, in their Executive Report Assessing the Threat from EMP Attack (July 2017) describes threats from combined-arms cyber warfare, a nuclear EMP attack, solar storms, cyber-attack and sabotage.
Combined-arms cyber warfare, as described in the military doctrines of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran, may use combinations of cyber-, sabotage-, and ultimately nuclear EMP-attack to impair the United States quickly and decisively by blacking-out large portions of its electric grid and other critical infrastructures.
Foreign adversaries may aptly consider nuclear EMP attack a weapon that can gravely damage the U.S. by striking at its technological Achilles Heel, without having to confront the U.S. military. The synergism of such combined arms is described in the military doctrines of all these potential adversaries as the greatest revolution in military affairs in history—one which projects rendering obsolete many, if not all, traditional instruments of military power.
All of several threats must be considered:
Solar superstorms can generate natural EMP over remarkably wide areas. Recurrence of the Carrington Event of 1859 is considered by many to be inevitable. NASA estimates the likelihood of such an event to be 10 to 12 percent per decade, making it very likely that Earth will be affected by a solar superstorm within a matter of decades. Such an event could blackout electric grids and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures, putting at risk the lives of many millions. 
Nuclear EMP attack might be conducted with only a single nuclear weapon detonated at high altitude or with a few weapons above 30 kilometers. These could be delivered by satellite, by a wide variety of long- and short-range missiles, including cruise and anti-ship missiles, by a jet doing a zoom-climb, or even by a high-altitude balloon. Some modes of attack could be executed relatively anonymously, thereby impairing deterrence. 
Russia, China, and North Korea now have the capability to conduct a nuclear EMP attack against the U.S. All have practiced or described contingency plans to do so. Terrorists or other less sophisticated actors also might mount a nuclear EMP attack if they have access to a suitable nuclear explosive. For missile delivery, no re-entry system or accurate missile guidance would be necessary. 
Cyber-attack, using computer viruses and related means, might be able to blackout much of the electric grid for extended intervals. According to U.S. Cyber Command, Russia and China currently have such capability and it may be only a matter of time before other adversaries also gain a similar capability.
The U.S. electric grid could be sabotaged by damaging extra-high-voltage (EHV) transformers using rifles, explosives, or non-nuclear EMP or directed energy weapons. Attacking less than a dozen key substations could result in protracted and widespread blackout, according to the public statements of a past Chairman of the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). At least one substantive rehearsal of such an attack may have already taken place, at the Metcalf substation in the San Francisco Bay area.

ISRAEL DEVELOPS MISSILE SYSTEM TO HIT ENEMY MISSILE LAUNCHERS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
NEW IDF TECH DESTROYS ENEMIES AND SAVES LIVES
Israel has developed a system can guide attack missiles to track and hit an enemy launcher that fires rockets at the State of Israel with unprecedented accuracy. 
Working in precise coordination with Iron Dome, Israel’s famous anti-missile system that has been intercepting most of the rockets fired on Israeli population centers by Palestinian guerrilla groups, the new IDF missile attachment is able to return fire immediately destroying the terrorists and their launcher. As the Iron Dome fires to intercept the terror missile, another attack missile is released taking out the launcher.
Developed for the IDF by Israel’s Raphael Industries, the add-on “brains” can be attached to any simple rocket turning it into a highly precise attack missile. The smart-missile technology scans the target area presenting a live picture that guides the rocket along the best route and spot of attack.
The result is a real-time attack weapon that can hit with precision any enemy target within built-up areas inside a town, village, near a school or hospital, and take it out without injuring civilians. 
The system is being tested in the Negev and should be ready for the next war with Hamas, or any other militant group in Syria or Iran that tries to fire rockets at Israel. The beauty of the system is that it can be attached to any missile and is able to guide it with unprecedented precision to within 3 meters (9.8 feet) of the target.
Hopes are that the new technology will send a “loud” and clear message to the other side that they can no longer hide behind children and schools to shoot their deadly arsenal at Israeli civilians. 
The Palestinian terrorists who use their own children to shield their militants may not care for their people, but the efforts that Israel goes to in order to develop smart and expensive military options able to take out any and all weapons fired on the Jewish state while at the same time protecting innocent bystanders proves the supreme value of human life held by the State of Israel, first of all for the protection of her own citizens, but also for the lives of the children and non-combatants on the other side of the conflict.

GENOCIDE ALERT ISSUED FOR KASHMIR

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
GENOCIDE ALERT ISSUED FOR KASHMIR
The Kashmir conflict, referred to as a “territorial dispute,” has been central to tense relations in Asia for more than 70 years, particularly between the two nuclear powers of India and Pakistan. 
A few days ago, Genocide Watch issued a Genocide Alert for India Administered Kashmir.
On August 5, the Indian President revoked the Special Autonomous Status of India Administered Jammu and Kashmir under Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution of India. India has over 600,000 troops in Kashmir. Movement of people and freedom of the press are restricted. India has cut off internet communications.
On Aug. 4, India ordered all tourists and outside students to leave Kashmir effective immediately. They simultaneously implemented emergency measures to protect tourists and Indian Hindu yathris doing an annual Hindu pilgrimage. It also airlifted almost 10,000 more soldiers into Kashmir within a matter of two days.
Approximately 28,000 additional armed troops then invaded Kashmir Valley in trucks and tanks.
The Indian government eliminated Kashmir’s special status in an effort to assimilate the Kashmiri people, extinguish their unique Indigenous title to land and claim their land as federal territory. This obliterated any last set of rights Kashmiris enjoyed as a semi-autonomous people in the Indian union of states.
These unilateral moves by the Indian state obliterate the rights Kashmiris had as citizens of India as well as their Indigenous rights. Under the United Nations Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP), India is obligated to ensure decisions pertaining to Kashmiri are made with them, using the principle of Free, Prior, Informed Consent (FPIC) that recognizes Kashmiris as a sovereign Indigenous people.
The UNDRIP was adopted and signed by India, China and Pakistan in 2007.
Since Aug. 4, India has eliminated all access to and communication with Kashmir. The internet, mobile and landlines have been severed, and 14.7 million people have no access to essentials like food and medical support while Indian advances to take full control of their land using military power.
Aside from extremely rare media, Kashmiris have not been able to communicate with each other or with the outside world. The entire Jammu and Kashmir region is essentially imprisoned under house arrest.
Since 1949, Article 370 has granted the state of Jammu and Kashmir semi-autonomous constitutional status. Under its provisions, the region has its own legislative assembly, constitution, flag and independence in all matters except communications, foreign affairs and defence.
Revoking this status is the latest attempt to annihilate the Kashmiri people, extinguish their rights and eliminate their linguistic, social, cultural, economic and political existence as Indigenous people. The legality of dissolving the special status is being challenged by India’s legal and constitutional experts, and goes against the country’s Supreme Court rulings of recent years.
These changes will also result in a reconfiguration of the population in Kashmir. Kashmiris have long speculated that India intends to settle military and paramilitary families in Kashmir. As a Kashmiri, I have personally already seen semi-permanent military colonies in Kashmir.
There has been a reluctance to use the term genocide to describe the events that have unfolded in Kashmir over the decades.
But the legal definition of genocide fits. The Kashmiri people have been targeted for a demographic transformation on their territory by an outsider group by introducing mass permanent settlements of outsiders. The outsider group is the Hindu nationalist Indian state under the leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

U.S., ISRAEL AND UAE SHARING INTELLIGENCE AGAINST IRAN

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
US JOINS SECRET TALKS BETWEEN ISRAEL & UAE TARGETING IRAN
Secret talks have been ongoing between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, focused on sharing intelligence against Iran and possibly military cooperation. The talks have progressed to the point that the US is now joining the talks too.
Israel and the UAE have some security ties, but don’t have public relations. That they’re discussing Iran reflects Israel’s long-standing hostility toward Iran, and the UAE’s close proximity to Iran.
While some are presenting the US joining of the talks as proof they are making progress, a lot isn’t understood about what’s going on, and particularly unclear is what the UAE is trying to work out. 
The UAE seems to be trying to balance multiple interests, as they’ve tried to talk to Iran about maritime security in recent days, and seem not to be looking to pick fights with them. That’s in stark contrast to Israel, for whom picking fights with Iran is the centerpiece of decades of foreign policy. 
It’s clear that the UAE has an interest in keeping the US happy, and that probably requires keeping Israel at lease sort of placated in this regard. So while they aren’t trying to start anything against Iran they’re trying to walk the tightrope of balancing both sides to keep everyone satisfied.

LEPROSY NOW IN LA COUNTY

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
NEW REPORT SHOWS LEPROSY ON THE RISE IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY
California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.
Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.
Medscape reported:
Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.
“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.
Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.
Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).
Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.
Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.
Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.

PEACE PLAN’ TO BE RELEASED AFTER ISRAEL’S ELECTIONS SEPT. 17

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
TRUMP SAYS HE WILL RELEASE MIDEAST PEACE PLAN AFTER ISRAEL ELECTIONS
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday he would likely wait until after Israel’s Sept. 17 elections to release a peace plan for the region that was designed by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner.
Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, is the main architect of a proposed $50 billion economic development plan for the Palestinians, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon that is designed to create peace in the region.
The first part of Trump’s Middle East peace plan – the economic part – was presented in Manama, Bahrain, in June at the “Peace to Prosperity” workshop.
While dozens of government officials and representatives from around the world took part in the conference – including from Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Jordan and Morocco – no government representation from Israel or the Palestinian Authority attended.
The Palestinian Authority boycotted the event saying that it was an effort to “bribe” the Palestinians, and Bahrain decided not to invite any Israeli government officials when it became apparent that no PA officials would be on hand.

CHINA PLANNING LARGE-SCALE SELLING OF TREASURE BILL HOLDINGS TO TRIGGER A DOLLAR CRASH?

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
CHINA PREPARES ITS ‘NUCLEAR OPTION’ IN TRADE WAR
As the trade war continues to escalate, China is becoming increasingly active in Iran and is considering retaliating with what has long been described as the country’s ‘nuclear option’.
If there is any further pushback from the US on any of these Chinese projects in Iran, then Beijing will invoke in full force the ‘nuclear option’ of selling all or a significant part of its US$1.4 trillion holding of US Treasury Bills, with a major chunk of the paper due to be sold in September on this basis. This massive holding of these bonds – through which the US finances its economy and is an important factor both in the value of the dollar and therefore in the health of US international companies especially – has been used as a bargaining chip before by China, especially when it feels threatened. 
Back in 2007, just before the great financial crisis, a number of senior Chinese figures at various state-run think tanks – through which China often signals its big geopolitical threats – stated that the large-scale selling of this massive Treasury Bill holding would trigger a dollar crash, a huge spike in bond yields, the collapse of the housing market and stock market chaos.
Such a tactic would neatly fit into China’s overall strategy to have the renminbi challenge the US dollar’s status as the key global reserve currency and the prime currency for global energy transactions.
“The long-planned sequencing for this was inclusion in the SDR {Special Drawing Rights] mix, which happened in 2016, increasing use as a trading currency…
Only recently, Leonid Mikhelson, chief executive officer of Russian oil major, Novatek, said that future sales to China denominated in renminbi is under consideration and that US sanctions accelerate the process of Russia trying to switch away from US dollar-centric oil and gas trading and the damage from potential sanctions that go with it. “This has been discussed for a while with Russia’s largest trading partners such as India and China, and even Arab countries are starting to think about it… If they do create difficulties for our Russian banks then all we have to do is replace dollars,” he said. “The trade war between the US and China will only accelerate the process,” he added.
China wants to get away from the dollar system and that is the overall direction of travel,” he concluded.

Big Tech has already implemented their own “social credit score” system where they punish people for their political views by deplatforming them, censoring their websites and closing their PayPal/bank accounts.
On the other hand, media outlets which push propaganda in accordance with the desires of our ruling oligarchs are rewarded by having their content algorithmically artificially boosted and handed millions of dollars.

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY PRESIDENT MAHMOUD ABBAS NOW CLAIMS THAT THEY ARE THE BIBLICAL CANAANITES, ZECHARIAH TELLS THEM WHAT THEIR FATE SHALL BE

https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/palestinian-authority-president-mahmoud-abbas-claims-they-are-biblical-canaanites-zechariah-tells-what-their-fate-shall-be/
“We are the Canaanites,” he said, according to a report from Asharq Al-Awsat. “We will remain in our homeland, and the outsiders on this land have no right in this country. The land is for its inhabitants, this land is for the Canaanites who were here 5,000 years ago, and we are the Canaanites.” The prophet Zechariah shows us what happens to the Canaanites when Jesus returns.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is claiming that his people are historically at home in Israel.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is claiming that his people are historically at home in Israel, and are the descendants of the biblical Canaanites.
I like this story, it brings a smile to my face and I will tell you why. I am been saying for years now that I view the so-called Palestinians are the descendants of the biblical Canaanites, and now Mahmoud Abbas is agreeing with me. In the article below you will read about why these claims he is making are ‘problematic’, but the ‘scholars’ all come to the wrong conclusion as to why such claims are problematic. The prophet Zechariah shows us the real scoop.
“In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD’S house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 14:20,21 (KJV)
The Canaanites going all the way back to the book of Joshua have been the enemy of Israel, so if Abbas claims they are actually Canaanites, certainly the fact that the two groups remain enemies today puts us on a solid footing. But the prophet Zechariah shows us that, when King Jesus appears at the Second Coming and establishes His Kingdom in Israel, the Canaanites will be forcibly removed from the land and driven out.
That means that the Canaanites need to still exist as an identifiable people group in the end times, they can’t be driven out of they don’t exist, right? And according to the words of Mahmoud Abbas himself, now they do! This is called being ‘hoist by your own petard‘. I love seeing Bible prophecy being played out.
We are the Canaanites,” he said, according to a report from Asharq Al-Awsat.
FROM WND:We are the Canaanites,” he said, according to a report from Asharq Al-Awsat. “We will remain in our homeland, and the outsiders on this land ha[ve] no right in this country. The land is for its inhabitants, this land is for the Canaanites who were here 5,000 years ago, and we are the Canaanites.”
However, that claim proves to be problematic, according to an analysis from Breaking Israel News.
The publication quoted Mordechai Kedar, a senior lecturer in the Department of Arabic at Bar-Ilan University, who said all Arab peoples first arrived in the land of Judea with the Muslim invasion from the Arab Peninsula in A.D. 637.
“This includes the Palestinians who are proudly Arab,” he said. He accused Palestinians of creating “an entirely new version of history.”
“Imagine a Bedouin tribe whose water has dried up,” he said, “They move at night to a place where there are trees and water. They settle in and pitch their tents. In the morning, when the residents show up and ask what they are doing there, the Bedouins answer that they have lived there for thousands of years and they are indigenous.”
Rabbi Yosef Dayan, a member of the Sanhedrin and a descendant of King David, reacted to Abbas’ claim with humor.
“The rabbi related that the last time Prime Minister Netanyahu met with Abbas, he told him that he was willing to make concessions but first, he wanted to settle an old and outstanding debt between the Palestinians and the Jews. ‘When Moses came down from Sinai, a Palestinian stole the stone tablets. We want them back. They are precious artifacts worth millions of dollars.’ ‘No,’ Abbas retorted. ‘We don’t have them and we don’t keep those laws. We weren’t there.’ ‘Exactly,’ Netanyahu countered. ‘Now let’s talk about whose land it really is.’”
YES, LET’S TALK ABOUT WHOSE LAND IT REALLY IS
“In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.” Genesis 15:18-21 (KJV)

WHO’S OCCUPYING WHO? LET’S LOOK AT GOD’S ORIGINAL LAND GRANT OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL TO ABRAHAM
“Not only is the Palestinian claim to be descended from Canaan inconsistent with the history and archaeological evidence but it is also problematic from the Jewish side. If we accept Abbas’ claims, the Torah requires the Jews to annihilate the Canaanites that live inside Israel.”
Dayan said, however, the Palestinians are safe, since they are not Canaanites.
“Abbas claim would be no less problematic to Christians in light of the Palestinian claim that Jesus was a Palestinian,” BIN reported.
“This would necessarily mean that Jesus was a Canaanite which contradicts explicit references to Jesus’ Judean origins in the New Testament,” the report explained.
Further, “Abbas’ claim also contradicts scientific findings. A 2017 study sequenced the Canaanite genome from the remains of five individuals buried around 3,700 years ago in the ancient port city of Sidon, Lebanon. The results were compared against the DNA of 99 modern-day Lebanese residents. The study determined that more than 90 percent of the genetic ancestry of modern Lebanese is derived from ancient Canaanites.”
The report explained: “In historical reality, the Philistines were a biblical people of Greek origin who settled on ancient Israel’s coastal plain around the 12th century BCE. Approximately 600 years later, both the Philistine and Israelite nations were exiled by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, the Philistines in 604 BCE and the Kingdom of Judah in 586 BCE. The Philistine nation and identity were subsumed into the conquering Greek culture and the Philistines disappeared as a people soon after.”

THIS ISN’T NORMAL: KANSAS AND OKLAHOMA HAVE BEEN HIT BY 65 EARTHQUAKES WITHIN THE LAST 7 DAYS

http://endoftheamericandream.com/August 18, 2019August 18, 2019 by Michael Snyder

What are we supposed to think when rather large earthquakes start happening in places that aren’t supposed to have large earthquakes?  2019 has been quite a year for seismic activity already, and I understand that we should expect to see earthquakes in diverse places, but if someone told me that the U.S. was just hit by a significant quake one of the last places that I would check would be Kansas.  The state of Kansas is certainly known for a lot of things, but earthquakes are not one of them, and that is why what we just witnessed is so startling.  According to the Kansas City Star, one county in central Kansas alone has been hit by 11 quakes within the past five days… (READ MORE…)

IN THE U.S., A TRANSPORTATION RECESSION HAS ALREADY OFFICIALLY ARRIVED

August 18, 2019 by Michael Snyderhttp://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/in-the-u-s-a-transportation-recession-has-already-officially-arrived

A transportation recession often precedes a recession for the entire economy, and while the debate about when the U.S. economy as a whole will plunge into a recession is quite vigorous right now, the truth is that the debate is over regarding when a transportation recession will begin.  Throughout 2017 and most of 2018, U.S. freight shipment volume was booming, and that was a very strong sign that overall economic activity was rising.  But when economic activity begins to decline, freight shipment volume often goes negative, and that is precisely what is happening right now.  In fact, U.S. freight shipment volume has now declined on a year over year basis for eight months in a row(READ MORE…)

PSALM 119:137-176

https://gracethrufaith.com/the-psalms/psalm-119137-176-conclusion
NOTE Psalm 119 is an acrostic poem which means that each of its stanzas begins with one of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet starting with the aleph and continuing in order through the tau. In Hebrew, each verse in a stanza begins with the  letter by which the stanza is titled.  Also, every one of the psalm’s 176 verses mentions the Word of the Lord. As we conclude this review of Psalm 119 we’ll look at Tsadhe through Tau, the closing stanzas.
c Tsadhe
Righteous are you, O LORD, and your laws are right. The statutes you have laid down are righteous; they are fully trustworthy.
My zeal wears me out, for my enemies ignore your words.
Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.
Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts.
Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.
Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.
Your statutes are forever right; give me understanding that I may live.
q Qoph
I call with all my heart; answer me, O LORD, and I will obey your decrees.
I call out to you; save me and I will keep your statutes.
I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.
My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises.
Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your laws.
Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law.
Yet you are near, O LORD, and all your commands are true.
Long ago I learned from your statutes that you established them to last forever.
r Resh
Look upon my suffering and deliver me, for I have not forgotten your law.
Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise.
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out your decrees.
Your compassion is great, O LORD; preserve my life according to your laws.
Many are the foes who persecute me, but I have not turned from your statutes.
I look on the faithless with loathing, for they do not obey your word.
See how I love your precepts; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your love.
All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
S Sin and Shin
Rulers persecute me without cause, but my heart trembles at your word.
I rejoice in your promise like one who finds great spoil.
I hate and abhor falsehood but I love your law.
Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.
Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
I wait for your salvation, O LORD, and I follow your commands.
I obey your statutes, for I love them greatly.
I obey your precepts and your statutes, for all my ways are known to you.
t Tau
May my cry come before you, O LORD; give me understanding according to your word.
May my supplication come before you; deliver me according to your promise.
May my lips overflow with praise, for you teach me your decrees.
May my tongue sing of your word, for all your commands are righteous.
May your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts.
I long for your salvation, O LORD, and your law is my delight.
Let me live that I may praise you, and may your laws sustain me.
I have strayed like a lost sheep. Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten your commands.
We’re seeing more and more signs of the world’s polarisation. There’s talk of making films with Christian themes carry ratings that warn of violence or intolerance. Christian web sites are being blocked in the workplace.  In some countries the Bible has already been labelled as hate speech.  The fastest growing component of organised religion avoids mentioning that we’re all sinners who need to be saved.  The middle ground is rapidly disappearing as the world chooses up sides.
But above it all stands God’s Law, and like gravity we’re subject to it even if we deny it. Even those who fight most strongly against God’s Law do so with increasing irrationality, as if knowing at some level that it must be true. What this means is that the time is rapidly approaching when the Personification of the Law, the only one ever to keep it, will return to administer it with an iron sceptre (Psalm 2:9) in a world that has gone mad with rebellion.  And when He does, we’ll finally have peace. Maranatha!
