DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

——————————————-

Church Goer Or Believer?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/church-goer-or-believer/
QUESTION:    Recently I read that end times prophecy turned you from life long churchgoer to born again believer. Can you explain what you meant? Wouldn’t your going to church faithfully mean that you believed in God and subsequently Jesus? After all, isn’t it simply a belief in Jesus and that he died for us enough?
ANSWER:    There are many lifelong churchgoers who aren’t saved and I was one of them. Sure, I “believed” in Jesus in the intellectual sense, and I believed He died on a cross. But I didn’t believe He died for my sins. I didn’t think I was a sinner, so I didn’t think I needed a Savior. Therefore I never asked Him to save me.
The church I had attended for most of my life didn’t teach the need for that. We were taught that becoming a member of the church and trying to live a good life is all that’s necessary to guarantee a place in heaven when we die.
When I was forty years old, a friend gave me some recorded teachings on Bible prophecy—past, present, and future. After doing some homework, I became convinced that God is everything He claims to be, and that He sent His son to die for me so I could live forever with Him. I finally asked Him to save me, and that’s when I was born again as one of His children (John 1:12-13).
Now I know that no matter how much time we spend in church, we aren’t saved until we admit we are sinners, believe the Lord died for our sins and rose again, and ask Him to save us (Romans 10:9-10,13).

Believer Or True Believer?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/believer-or-true-believer/
QUESTION:    I have a question concerning the difference between “believers” and “true believers” and the Rapture. I have many friends and relatives who believe that Jesus is the son of God and believe that he died on the cross for our sins, but they do not have Jesus as Lord of their lives and it seems they have no relationship or fellowship with Christ. According to John 3:16 will they be taken in the Rapture just based on their belief in Jesus or will they have to endure the Tribulation?
ANSWER:    John 3:16 is just one of many verses that identify our belief in what Jesus did for us as the single qualification for salvation. The Greek word for belief is pisteuo. Its primary meaning is, “to think to be true, to be persuaded of, to credit, or place confidence in the thing believed.” John 6:28-29 & 6:40, Romans 10:9, Ephesians 1:13-14 and others all use the same word.
This kind of belief is more than just an intellectual assent, it’s an emotional commitment, something we’ve staked our eternal destiny on. The Greek word for faith comes from the same root. It usually manifests itself in the form of changed behavior, but not always, so there’s no specific outward sign that can prove your belief to others or theirs to you. Only the Lord knows for sure who are His because only He knows the inner thoughts of our heart. (1 Cor. 4:5). But all who possess this belief will go in the rapture no matter what their life looks like to others.

The Church’s Last Believer

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/the-churchs-last-believer/
QUESTION:    I am puzzled in regards to the rapture of the Church. Will there be a short time when no one else will accept the Lord as savior, and at that time the Lord will call us home? There are people still being saved everywhere, so do you believe the cut off point will be between people that will make up the Body Of Christ, and the people that God knows won’t be saved until the tribulation?
ANSWER:    Since the rapture will happen “in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye” (1 Cor. 15:52) I don’t think there will necessarily be a pause during which no one will come to the Lord. I believe when the last person necessary to make up the “full number” becomes a believer, the Church will instantaneously disappear (Romans 11:25). Every person saved after that will be numbered among the post rapture believers who will go into Daniel’s 70th Week.

A THIRD OF THE PLANET IS NOW UNDER LOCK-DOWN – GLOBAL ECONOMY ON THE BRINK

A third of the planet is now under Lockdown – Global economy on the Brink
<img src=”https://endtimeheadlines.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/shutterstock_1662782974-1000×640.jpg” alt=”A third of the planet is now under Lockdown &#8211; Global economy on the Brink” />
(ETH) – It’s almost like the entire earth is beginning to stand still! Global giant India joined the countries ordering their citizens to stay at home Tuesday, putting a third of the world on lockdown as the coronavirus epidemic forced Japan to postpone the Olympics. Despite warnings from the United States and Europe that the unprecedented shutdown is pushing the world economy towards collapse, more governments are opting to stop potential virus-carriers going out and about.
And just as China, where the new strain emerged last year, began to loosen some restrictions, neighboring India ordered its 1.3 billion people — the world’s second-biggest population — to stay at home. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “total lockdown” call doubled the number of people around the globe under some form of movement restriction to more than 2.6 billion people. “To save India, to save it every citizen, you, your family… every street, every neighborhood is being put under lockdown,” Modi said.

ITALY TURNS THE CORNER

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Jim Hoft
Italy Finally Turns the Corner — Coronavirus Confirmed Cases and Number of Deaths Begin Trending Down
Italy was hit hard with the coronavirus.
Over the past 30 days the country has seen 6,820 deaths in its elderly and afflicted population.
The first deaths were reported back on February 24th — one month ago.
Since then there has been a wave of deaths.
Over 69,000 Italians tested positive for the coronavirus.
But the trend is starting to turn in Italy’s favor.
The past three days have seen a gradual decrease in cases reported.
The confirmed cases peaked on Saturday and since then have been trending downward.
THIS IS GOOD NEWS FOR ITALY IF THIS CONTINUES.

LIVES CHANGED:

‘Jesus Flipped The Switch’ Hashtag Trends As People Show Lives Transformed By God’s Grace
Social media can often bring out the worst in people. This time, some users are posting photos and sharing how God has changed their lives for the better.
Thousands of Twitter users used the hashtag #JesusFlippedTheSwitch and shared how coming to know Christ has completely transformed their lives. 1John 1:9 says, 
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Some of those transformations are pretty amazing and show how a person went from a depressed, drug user to a happy, well-balanced person who worships God.
Many cited or referred to 2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
These really don’t need much commentary, so here they are:

LOCKDOWN AS FORESHADOWING?

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By Ron Matsen
LOCKDOWN: FORESHADOWING THE FINAL AGE?
In recent weeks, the world has witnessed a global phenomenon that is unprecedented in human history. National governments, businesses, churches, and local communities have responded to the COVID-19 Coronavirus epidemic with, what appears to be, a sudden and severe suspension of people’s individual liberties. National borders are closed, travel is restricted or completely suspended, businesses are closed, and planned public events are canceled. One of the sad results of this global crisis is the panic-driven purchasing of essential goods by a bewildered public who have been forced into unwanted and unprepared isolation. At this point, it is very hard to discern what is really going on.
As I am writing this article, I have been communicating with friends in Italy, where they have been told that all citizens must remain in their homes until further notice. Limited to “essential errands,” the Italians are forced to remain in isolation. One gentleman told us that he was not allowed even to cross town to visit his own family. Restaurants are closed, coffee bars are silent, and streets are empty.
In the midst of these initial chaotic days, I was faced with a nagging question of “How did so many give up so much so quickly?” The speed of this blitzkrieg has surprised even the most pessimistic conspiracy-theory advocate. It has been said that Knowledge is Power. Therefore, it would appear that an informed and powerful elite can easily control an ignorant public if fear blinds the minds of the masses.
Now, the purpose of this article is not to debate the reasonableness of these actions or reaction as they are related to the current WHO declared pandemic but to examine a possible Biblical perspective that might give us insight into this current social phenomenon. In other words, is there a future parallel to the coming subjugation of the whole world as predicted in Scripture?
Prophecy buffs are very familiar with the Biblical predictions concerning an anti-Christ that will arise and lead the whole world into its final age of rebellion against God. As you begin to read and collect scriptures that relate to this character, you are constantly confronted with the fact that he becomes a world-wide leader with what appears to be, irresistible power and authority.
In chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation, John calls him “the beast.” The beast is given power by Satan himself. The “beast” will be unbeatable. “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?’”
This beast will be joined by another who will perform, in the presence of the beast, many amazing signs and wonders in the sight of all mankind. An image of the beast will then be constructed and brought to life. Worship of this image of the beast will be mandatory. It is at this point that we are told,
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” – Revelation 13:16,17
Over the years of reviewing these predictions, I have wondered how this would actually take place. Given all of the national, cultural, religious and individual differences in the world, how would anyone be able to enforce such an edict as is described in verses 16 and 17 of Revelation, chapter 13? As we can see, history is riddled with accounts of regional despots attempting to exercise their dominion over a conquered people. Ultimately, the dictator is deposed, and the cycle starts again somewhere else on the planet.
The quest for liberty has compelled mankind to attempt to cast off the shackles of draconian rule and to seek individual freedom. Why then do we see the world described in Revelation chapter 13 as willing to worship and submit to this beast? Simply put, I believe that FEAR will be the motivation that most will have to drive them into submission. We certainly have seen the fear-factor at work today as it has enabled these latest world-wide restrictions to be enforced so quickly and easily.
For informed Christians, none of these current events should leave us in a state of confusion or fear. Jesus told His disciples of the end-times condition of the worldMatthew 24:6 & 7
“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Fear is the byproduct of ignorance and helplessness. As Christians, we need not stumble into either of these snares. As children of Light we need to “walk in the light as He is in the light.” Therefore, we should stand firm in faith in our sovereign God, who is still on His throne and directs the affairs of mankind from His throne of mercy and justice. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” During these troublesome times, we need to focus our mind on the things that are eternally true. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
As the fabric and foundation of our world is being tested, many are seeing their livelihoods and lifetime ambitions wiped away in a heartbeat. In their struggle to gain some kind of balance, I believe many will be looking for answers to the deeper things of life. Therefore, Christians can be ambassadors of hope to a world that are lost on the raging sea of uncertainly. Jesus told us what to do in times of darkness.
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” – Matthew 5:13-16

FAITH AND FACTS OVER FEAR

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By Bryan Fischer
FAITH AND FACTS OVER FEAR
 “Fear not.” ~ God 
“No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.” ~ Edmund Burke 
The coronavirus panic has now taken on a life of its own. We’re all now just passengers on a boat in the middle of a storm-tossed sea with little or no power or authority to change its course. We’re all just along for the ride, as decisions that have a material effect on our daily lives are being made by people with a lot of power and very imperfect judgment.
It’s a very uncertain time for everyone. But let’s take to heart the story of Jesus and the storm on the Sea of Galilee. When the life-threatening storm arose, the disciples soon descended into a full-blown panic. While the disciples were in this full-blown panic, Jesus was asleep in the back of the boat with his head resting on a pillow. Whatever else we know, we know that Jesus was not panicked by that crisis.
In fact, he rebuked the disciples for giving way to their panic and responding to the crisis with fear rather than faith. “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” (Mark 4:40) Remember what Jesus told them, “Let us go across to the other side” (Mark 4:35). He did not say, “Let’s go out in the middle of the sea and drown like rats.” But faced with the prospect of a boat filling with water, they completely lost sight of the words of the Master and were consumed with fear.
Let’s not forget that in another circumstance when Peter had overcome his fear, he was able to walk on turbulent waters – as long as he locked eyes with the Lord. It was only when he shifted his focus to the waves, instead of the master of the waves, that he began to sink.
The solution for us, as always, is to be guided by faith and facts rather than by fear. There are some very important facts we need to keep front and centre as this coronavirus panic runs its course.
First, the actual mortality rate is not nearly as high as people think. 
In fact, the fatality rate in the U.S. (not the total number of deaths but the rate at which people are dying) is drastically declining as the number of cases increases.
South Korea has a mortality rate of less than 1%, and they have resorted to no lockdowns or “shelter in place” restrictions. You can still go to church or to the gym or out to eat at a restaurant there, and South Korea still has a death rate that is lower than ours, largely due to aggressive testing right from jump street.
Regarding school closures, the CDC points out that places that closed schools (like Hong Kong) have not had more success in reducing spread of the virus than those like Singapore which did not. In fact, based on transmission evidence and the confined spaces principle, it is more likely that children will catch COVID-19 at home than at school. In fact, isolating every family in their own home might actually increase the chances of infection and transmission among family members.
Closing down our school systems nationwide will cost our economy in the neighbourhood of $50 billion. We could build 50 hospitals with 500+ beds per hospital for that amount of money.
Data from round the world shows that 95% of people who are tested aren’t positive, and that 93% of people who think they are positive aren’t.
Even in China there is good reason to believe that there are virtually no new cases now. The coronavirus will run its course as all viruses do. Daily growth rates (that is, not the total number of cases but the rates at which cases are growing) are in steady decline all over the world, no matter what particular public policy solutions (such as social distancing) are tried.
According to Nobel Laureate and biophysicist Michael Levitt, the infection rate is declining. “The fact that the infection rate is slowing down means the end of the pandemic is near.”
We know from Italy’s experience that senior citizens are by far the most vulnerable to the virus. The average age at death for COVID-19 victims is 81. According to a study of the fatalities of COVID-19 cases in Italy, 99% of all deaths had an underlying pathology. Only 0.8% had no underlying condition.
According to the American Medical Association, no death below the age of 10 has been reported anywhere in the world. And according to the Wall Street Journal, children have a near-zero chance of becoming ill. They are more likely to get normal flu than COVID-19. (It’s worthy of note that while there have been no pediatric deaths this year from COVID-19, we’ve already had 136 pediatric deaths from the seasonal flu.)
Medical research shows that COVID-19 doesn’t spread as easily as everybody – including the media and power-hungry politicians – want us to believe. If you come in contact with someone who tests positive, you have somewhere between a one and five percent chance of catching it as well.
The majority of viral infections come from prolonged exposures in confined spaces with others, but even then, transmission is not inevitable. “If you have a COVID-19 patient in your household, your risk of developing the infection is about 10%, and if you were casually exposed to the virus in the workplace your chance of infection is about 0.5%.”
Air-based transmission or untraceable community spread is very unlikely. According to WHO’s COVID-19 lead Maria Van Kerkhove, true community-based spreading is very rare. Respiratory droplets are too heavy to travel more than a few feet.
Local governments and politicians are inflicting massive harm and disruption with little evidence to support their draconian edicts (the governor of Washington has banned funerals, if you can believe it). Every local government and every governor seem to be in a race to see who can impose the most draconian restrictions the fastest.
Even if these “shelter-in-place” edicts were suspended today, it will take a decade to repair the damage we have already done to our economy. If we let these lock-down policies go another two weeks, there may not even be an economy left to save. This is why three-fourths of Americans are more afraid of what government is doing to our economy than of what COVID-19 is doing to our health.
Many of the governmental edicts coming from state and local governments are driven not by evidence-based thinking but by emotion and fear. Elites are insulated from the impact of imposing draconian regulations that are devastating ordinary Americans. Said one writer, “People’s lives are being destroyed with Marxian vigour.”
All of this in response to a virus that has impacted 0.004% of our population.
That takes us back to Jesus and the disciples in the boat. The bottom line is that we don’t need to panic until Jesus does. And that’s not going to happen.
Remember that as long as Jesus is in the boat with us, the boat won’t sink and the storm won’t last forever. We will make it to the other side. Peter was even able to walk on turbulent waters as long as he kept his eyes fixed on Jesus. It was only when he shifted his focus from the Lord to the waves that he began to sink. Let’s take all the things that worry us – our health, our families, our finances, our pensions – and take them out of our basket and put them in the Lord’s basket. He will take care of them for us.

SECOND AND THIRD-ORDER EFFECTS WILL CREATE MORE PROBLEMS THAN THE VIRUS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Doug Casey
HOW THE CORONAVIRUS WILL SPARK THE GREATER DEPRESSION
Is the impact of the fear and hysteria greater than the risk of the virus itself?
Doug Casey: Yes, very much so. The virus itself is what we can call a first-order effect. I don’t want to spend much time talking about the flu itself because, even though worst-case numbers like a million deaths in the US are tossed around, it’s not the biggest problem.
The second-order effects—like the economy shutting down from hysteria—are actually much more serious.
The third-order effects—new laws and state action—will have the longest-lasting consequences. We can talk about them in a minute.
As far as the virus itself is concerned, I’m sure everybody has read lots of articles and listened to podcasts from experts. So knowledge—such as it is—about the virus is fairly widespread. Except very little is certain, even now. FWIW, I say that as a lifetime science aficionado, reading in many areas of science for years.
Just in the last generation, we’ve had hantavirus, the bird flu, swine flu, Zika, West Nile, MERS, SARS, and H1N1. We’ve also had anthrax—which everybody’s forgotten about. Of course, it’s a bacterial infection as opposed to a viral one. They’ve all had their day in the dark sun of mass hysteria.
The point I’m making is that there are thousands of viruses floating around. They mutate constantly. Most of them pass through the population and go viral, so to speak—and we never even notice that they exist.
Now this one is said to be ten times worse in terms of death rate than a normal flu. Is that true? It seems that if you get it, your odds of dying are much worse but still minimal. Normal seasonal cases of the flu kill maybe 50,000 people a year in the US. But we don’t even notice that.
So what’s the worst-case scenario regarding this virus?
Nobody really knows because it is a new virus. They’re still figuring it out, but maybe between 1% and 2% of the people who get it will die, mostly the old, the sick, and the obese. If you’re in one of those categories, you should take it very seriously.
The interesting thing about this virus is that very few have died so far, anywhere; the numbers would have been unnoticeable outside of the media hysteria. Not even a rounding error on a rounding error. The important thing is that it’s said to be spreading exponentially, doubling every three days or so. So maybe things will change radically in a week. Or not. It’s said at least 50% of the US population will get it, although 80% of them will be completely asymptomatic.
If you read all the conflicting reports from China, Italy, and other places, it’s pretty clear we don’t know much. There’s just one thing for absolutely certain: The world has been gripped by a genuinely titanic and insane hysteria.
Anyway, even the worst case from first-order effects—people dying— is being dwarfed by the second- and third-order effects. The important thing about this virus is not the first order of effects—people that it kills directly. It’s the consequences of the hysteria that it’s causing.
That’s what’s really serious.
Let’s talk about second-order effects. What the virus—or rather the hysteria surrounding it—is doing to people’s livelihoods.
Airlines are shut down. An airliner, all in, costs them $10,000 a day, whether they use it or not. Same, to some degree, for hotels. A restaurant closes down, but the owner still has to pay his mortgage. And the staff mostly lives on tips. How are they going to pay the rent—and if they don’t, then how’s the landlord going to pay his mortgage? The consequences of businesses shutting down, and going bust, are just huge.
For many years, the US has been what’s called a “service economy.” Most people don’t produce actual hard goods like houses, cars, food, and raw materials. We mostly do services. It’s a so-called “consumer economy.” A rather stupid concept actually—the term takes the emphasis off production and puts it on consumption.
When you have a depression, what happens?
Consumers cut back consumption to the very barest basics.
Distortions cranked into the economy by decades of money printing are going to be liquidated. Everybody is going to cut back to the basics. A lot of people are going to have to find new ways to support themselves.
It’s especially serious since, it’s said, most of America is one paycheck away from not being able to buy the next meal. Plus, they have lots of debt—which is somebody else’s asset. Counterparty risk is a big deal.
The collapse of the stock market isn’t just tagging speculators. Most older people don’t have enough savings for retirement, and most of what they have is in the market. Will they lose their homes, and wind up eating cat food? Poverty, not flu, is what really kills masses of people. This is why these second-order effects are so important.
The hysteria is unnecessary and foolish. But sometimes hysterias seem to come out of nowhere, like the witch crazes of the 17th century. Did the economy shut down for any of the past viruses that I mentioned?
More serious than the first-order or second-order effects are third-order effects.
Governments all around the world are putting in onerous new laws and regulations about travel, movement, and business. These things have to be paid for, which means higher taxes. But that’s almost impossible in a collapsing economy. So, not just the Americans—everybody is going to print up boatloads of new money.
Because so many people have no savings and are living from paycheck to paycheck, it’s probably the perfect excuse to set up a guaranteed annual income. People have been already been prepped for the ridiculous concept.
 A major second-order effect of this virus is that it just happened to be the pin that broke the biggest financial bubble in world history. And it’s very hard to reinflate a burst bubble.

FEAR PANDEMIC

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Julain Rose 
PANDEMIC: THE INVENTION OF A DISEASE CALLED FEAR
The word ‘pandemic’ bears a similarity to the word ‘panic’ and indeed ‘pandemonium’. In fact ‘pandemic’ evokes an almost instant flush of fear in those easily manipulated by mass media, before any details have even touched the surface or context in which the word is being used.
Those who plan the major moves on the chess-board of covert human control know that by leading with the word ‘pandemic’ they have an instantly effective weapon at their disposal to psychologically weaken the resistance of individuals vulnerable to irrational and impressionistic mindsets.
So, in a world heavily conditioned by the proclamations of the mass media, the fear weapon has huge psychological power.
As we have all witnessed over the past months, the Coronavirus story has been unleashed with barely contained lascivious delight by news media under orders from the purveyors of malevolent missions against mankind. Pumped-up to maximum volume and dispersed globally, the deliberately designed fear message has the instant effect of making the majority of people feel powerless. 
The Big problem is at large – and we the people feel small. This is the beginning of entrapment which colors every aspect of daily life.
Most of humanity has undergone a process of education which depends for its effectiveness on the perceived power of some ‘authority’ to exert an unquestioned controlling influence over the general direction of life. A source of influence that depends for its continuing effectiveness on never being subjected to rational scrutiny, or genuine examination of any kind. Such is the beguiling power of full-on indoctrination.
In the battle now raging for ‘who controls the world’, some of the largely hidden or disguised controlling agents of planetary life – are now appearing on the surface. And that’s why chaos and fear are very much ‘flavor of the month’. The Corona Contagion is chock full of idiosyncrasies; in fact, there are so many nonsensical factors associated with media attempts to report on what’s going on, that one can only feel dazed and confused should one try and follow the script in real-time.
However, what has become all too clear is the fact that large numbers of people are being herded – and are not resisting. The scare tactics being employed are more dangerous than the virus that is the excuse for deploying them. Under this induced state of psychosis, all manner of tricks can be perpetrated on mankind – and that is precisely what we are witnessing at this time.
Many reading this will already be familiar with the ambitions of the controlling deep state ‘elite’ and will know that a pre-planned phase of social and economic chaos is a key factor in their attempted roll-out of totalitarian New World Order. We are now in this phase. Its success depends upon a large body of people following the instructions passed down by the political puppets of the deep state and by the cowardly repetition of these instructions by the mainstream media.

THE LAST GASP

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Robert Gore
When you can’t love, you hate. When you can’t build, you destroy. When you’re ignored, you scream. When you can’t tell the truth, you lie. When you can’t reason, you panic. When no one will follow you out of admiration or respect, you compel. When you can’t live, you kill.
This is it, the last gasp of the psychopaths who express their contempt and hatred for humanity by trying to rule it. Compulsion, not voluntary and natural cooperation. Power, pull, and politics, not incentives, competition, honest production, and value-for-value trade. From each according to his virtue to each according to his depravity.
As the totalitarian horror unfolds before our eyes, only the willfully blind will ignore it. Only those who refuse to think will fail to grasp its implications. Only the irretrievably corrupt will embrace it.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise. We were warned.
Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness; only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where humans beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?

IS A MAJOR ‘RESET’ COMING?

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ –  Bruce Wilds 
THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM ISN’T THE ECONOMY – MIND THE GAP
The financial system is not the economy even though many people do not recognize the distinction. This means the gigantic efforts by the world’s central banks and governments to essentially “bail-out” both will prove somewhat ineffective. 
Covid-19 has become the catalyst for a major reset of both the financial sector and the Main Street economy, this article will attempt to give some clarity as to what we might find still standing on the other side of this crisis. Note the use of the word crisis, anyone who does not view the covid-19 now as a watershed event is oblivious to the world around them
There is such a thing as lag-time, everything is not immediate in our fast-moving world, some events take time to play out. The covid-19 crisis is greatly complicated because we have no real idea of how long it will persist. Hints have been made, possibly to ready the population, that this could or will likely continue for months.
The scale, scope, and speed at which world markets have sold off and lost value as investors try to get in front of this thing has been dramatic. Global stock and bond markets have seen an estimated $25 trillion of ‘paper’ wealth erased in the last month. This has erased all the gains from the December 2018 crash lows with more of the impact focused on stocks than bonds. In its wake, the sell-off has stripped many people of their savings and jeopardized the future existence of many businesses and financial institutions.
On the flip-side of the carnage is the ramping up of promises that a flood of money and aid is forthcoming. All options are on the table to get money into the hands that need it, some of it in the way of adding liquidity, some of it as a gift to anyone with their hand out. The specifics are spotty at best but one thing we can be sure of is that those lobbying hardest will get the most. The questions that remain to be answered are, how well this will work and will this infusion of cash be enough?
So far covid-19 is a new entry on to the scene. The reality of how it will affect the economy has yet to be realized and will trickle down to society. What I deem the Financial-Political Complex will protect its own with a massive bailout under the guise of “the greater good.” This extension of crony capitalism will throw just enough to the masses to silence their outrage. Large businesses will be the winners while the big losers again will be the middle-class, small businesses, and social mobility.
While you hear about the massive aid package the Financial-Political Complex is concocting to prop up this mess we should not forget they are responsible for much of the damage flowing from this crisis. For years they ignored the growing weakness on Main Street and focused on rising GDP numbers that were driven by government deficit spending. Addressing this now is like trying to turn a battleship around in a lake the size of a bathtub, nearly impossible. If it can be done it will take a long time. No matter how much money they throw at this the economy will not turn around on a dime or spring back. Regardless of how the financial sector fares the economy is destined to feel a great deal of pain.
We are in the second inning of a long game. It is only as this lingers that we begin to feel the full power of the lag-time effect. Anyone that thinks next month will be a return to business as usual and fails to mind the gap between expectations and reality is primed for disappointment. Too big to fail has become deeply embedded in our crony capitalist society and a key part of the Financial-Political Complex now running the show. If you are not part of this group I suggest you prepare to be thrown under the bus for “the greater good.”

WARNING: Congress Is Attempting To Sneak Creation Of A ‘Digital Dollar’ Into Coronavirus Stimulus Package Bill That’s Tied To National Digital ID

https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/congress-creating-digital-dollar-wallet-id-sneaking-into-coronavirus-stimulus-package-id2020/ – by Geoffrey Grider March 24, 2020
The bill establishes a digital dollar, which it defines as ‘a balance expressed as a dollar value consisting of digital ledger entries that are recorded as liabilities in the accounts of any Federal Reserve Bank or … an electronic unit of value, redeemable by an eligible financial institution (as determined by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System).’ Additionally, a digital dollar wallet is identified as ‘a digital wallet or account, maintained by a Federal reserve bank on behalf of any person, that represents holdings in an electronic device or service that is used to store digital dollars that may be tied to a digital or physical identity.’

The bill establishes a digital dollar, which it defines as ‘a balance expressed as a dollar value consisting of digital ledger entries that are recorded as liabilities in the accounts of any Federal Reserve Bank
Isn’t it amazing to sit back and watch all the pieces of what the coronavirus panic is really all about coming together? Today we see that buried deep into the coronavirus stimulus package from the Democratic Congress is a provision that will create a U.S. Digital Dollar, that will sit inside a Digital Wallet controlled by the Federal Reserve, and that will undoubtedly be tied to one of those fancy new chips from ID2020. Now we see why there is this unbridled panic over the coronavirus, to create chaos and confusion to sneak this garbage into the bill. Please note this is being done by Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, this is nothing to do with Trump.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)
For those of you coming in late to the game, here’s a review. Previously, we told your about the ID2020 Alliance funded by Bill Gates in partnership with the United Nations to create a digital ID for every person on the planet. Their goal is to administer a microchip with a vaccination, tied to a digital ID for buying and selling. Then we showed you how Bill Gates sponsored a closed-door strategy session called EVENT 201 on the coronavirus war-gaming a global outbreak, with all attendees given a COVID-19 plush toy to take home and cuddle with. Then yesterday we showed you Bill Gates again, (starting to see a recurring theme here yet?), calling for a national tracking system combined with ‘billions of vaccinations’.
The ID2020 Alliance has launched a new digital identity program at its annual summit in New York, in collaboration with the Government of Bangladesh, vaccine alliance Gavi, and new partners in government, academia, and humanitarian relief.
BIG PHARMA AND MICROSOFT ARE TEAMING UP IN SOMETHING CALLED THE ‘ID2020 ALLIANCE’ THAT WILL COMBINE VACCINATIONS WITH IMPLANTABLE MICROCHIPS TO CREATE YOUR DIGITAL ID
Now with all that fresh in your brain, let’s take a look at the Digital Dollar and the Digital Wallet that Congress is going to make every American receive if they want to get the coronavirus stimulus money. Anyone reading this should have just figured out that the stimulus money is bait so you will agree to the Digital Dollar, the Digital Wallet, and the Digital ID that will tie it all together.
  • NOTE: While this is not the Mark Of The Beast, it’s an excellent illustration of how the Mark will function. You’ve been warned, take the coronavirus stimulus package money at your own risk. I will not be taking one, red cent of it if it comes tied to a Digital Dollar. No sir, “thy money perish with thee“.
Coronavirus Stimulus Offered By House Financial Services Committee Creates New Digital Dollar with Digital Wallet and ID
FROM FORBES: As the markets continue to drop and the U.S. looks to Congress for agreement on a massive stimulus package to save the economy from impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, the newest offer by House Democrats includes a very forward-looking kind of stimulus: the creation of a ‘digital dollar’ and the establishment of ‘digital dollar wallets.’ In what will send shock waves through the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry, particularly for those following central bank digital currencies around the world, this signals the U.S. is serious in establishing infrastructure for a central bank digital currency.
  • Updated on 3/24/20 at 11:45 AMThe final version of the economic stimulus package offered by Speaker Pelosi the House Democrats no longer includes the U.S. Digital Dollar proposal; however, the language as proposed by Chairwoman Waters of the House Financial Services Committee still contains this language. Links to the original and updated stimulus bills with the latest language can be found here.
Both Speaker Pelosi’s ‘Take Responsibility for Workers and Families Act’ and the ‘Financial Protections and Assistance for America’s Consumers, States, Businesses, and Vulnerable Populations Act (H.R. 6321),’ introduced by Chairwoman Maxine Waters of Financial Services Committee, introduced these concepts today as a way of delivering the economic stimulus payments to U.S. citizens.
The bill establishes a digital dollar, which it defines as ‘a balance expressed as a dollar value consisting of digital ledger entries that are recorded as liabilities in the accounts of any Federal Reserve Bank or … an electronic unit of value, redeemable by an eligible financial institution (as determined by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System).’ Additionally, a digital dollar wallet is identified as ‘a digital wallet or account, maintained by a Federal reserve bank on behalf of any person, that represents holdings in an electronic device or service that is used to store digital dollars that may be tied to a digital or physical identity.’
A mandate also requires all ‘member banks’ establish a ‘pass-through digital dollar wallet’ to all customers eligible for the stimulus. Member banks include those banks that are ‘members’ of the Federal Reserve and regulated by the Fed. Additionally, ‘Non-Member’ state banks – those that not members of the Federal Reserve and regulated by the FDIC – could opt-in to offer pass-through digital dollar wallets as well. READ MORE:

BIBLICAL OBJECTIVITY IN A FALLEN WORLD OF SUBJECTIVE DELUSION

David Pepe – https://www.theignorantfishermen.com/2011/07/biblical-objectivity-in-fallen-world-of.html?m=0
Try to stand back and objectively look at the span of time here on earth; from the Tower of Babel with its global catalyst of godlessness and passion to live an existence without Almighty God, to the worldly brilliance and idolatrous society of Egypt. From the autocratic power of the Babylonians, to the strength of the Media Persians Empire. From the conquering speed and philosophy of Greece, to the decadent and oppressive Roman Empire. From the genus and barbarity of the Aztec, Mayans and Incas, to the godless vacuum of the European nations and lust for war. All of these civilizations have been one GODLESS, violent, decadent and oppressive cesspool of death and horror to the world’s inhabitants (Rom. 1:18-32).
Almighty God describes some of these global empires as ferocious wild beasts void of ANY Divine RIGHTEOUSNESS to help us better understand them from a heavenly perspective (Dan 7, Rev 13:1-2). My friend what is most astounding is that we haven’t evened peaked as a fallen race until we reached the 20th century. There has NEVER been a more violent, murderous, oppressive, narcissistic and decadent century in the history of mankind. All of our world’s EXPONENTIAL technological advances made in this last century has given the world more power at their finger tips to show forth the fallen godless passions and violence of the human heart (Jer. 17:9). Of course we have had some noble occasions and humanitarian exploits throughout this time, but these are but a faded blip and pale EXPONENTIALLY in comparison to mankind’s history of violence, lust and decadence (Rom 3:3-23). The out working and horrific consequences from the billions that have inhabited planet earth since Babel has completely ravished and laid waste this world’s lands and inhabitants.
The godless Babelology that first raised its head 4200 years ago (Gen 11:1-9), has thoroughly engulfed and saturated the world of today. This fallen world’s Babelology has made its billions of inhabitants spiritually stinking drunk to the crucial realities of time and ETERNITY and thus will they be swept away in the Day which fastly approaches (Eph. 2:1-3, Rev 17:1-2, 18:24). Dear friends, now
that we are here in the twenty first century do you think it will get any better mankind? Oh what delusion and fantasy the lawless globalist utopians of this hour hold onto! For with the EXPONENTIAL technological advances of this century will bring about the most HORRIFIC TIME of EXPONENTIAL violence, barbarity, casualties of death , geographical devastation and expression of the fallen heart of man this world has EVER known (Isa. 24, Dan. 12:1, Matt 24:21, Rev. 6-19). Indeed the Day of the Wrath of the Lamb is at hand and who shall abide (Rev. 6:15-17)!
Even America, which was founded during the Philadelphia Church Age (from about 1700 to about 1900 – the church of the “open door” – Rev 3:713), was established on the bedrock of natural and moral laws and foremost acknowledged the Person of Almighty God at its founding. America was founded at the end of the world’s time line which spans about 4200 years. Just in these brief 241 years of our nation’s history we have reached socially and culturally the point of no return.
There has been no other nation in the world’s history that has sent out the Biblical Gospel light as America has. America has been a beacon of freedom to the world’s oppressed and has been a global dam holding back the world’s anti-Semitism, oppressive tyrannies and the unbridled passions of fallen despots, especially in this last century. Let me ask you this very sobering question, “What do you think will become of the world once America restraining influence has been removed from the scene?” The very sobering answer is… GREAT tribulation and global anti -Semitism (Zech 14:2, Rev 6-16). America in these last 60 years has given herself full over to lawlessness, lewdness, godless pleasure seeking, immorality, vice, abortion, anti family values, godless ambitions and to the hatred of biblical TRUTH and REALITIES and to the absolute hatred of Jesus Christ the Savior of the world! Dear friends, when the dam (America) which is holding back Satan and this world’s evil designs is its self inflicting herself with lawlessness at every level what is to stop the Day of the Lord and ALL its EXPONENTIAL devastation to follow? Dear friends, indeed the Day of the Lord is at hand but there is hope in the Savior of the world!
If you personally know the Lord as your Savior, may you pray that He will give you the ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE for our day that you might have eyes to see the reality and truth, not just from your position in Christ (Eph. 2:6, Col. 3:1-4, Rev 4-5), but also to comprehend our day and hour in which we live (Prov. 2:6, Matt. 7:7, James 1:5).
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!

IMPOSSIBLE

http://pastormiketaylor.blogspot.com/ – By Daymond Duck
I wrote this article because I expected to be away from my computer and unable to keep up with current events for a few days.
The coronavirus changed that.
I understand this article is longer than usual.
Most of it is setting the stage for the way it ends.
The book of Romans begins,
“Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, (2) (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) (3) Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; (4) And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead” (Rom. 1:1-4).
Notice that Paul said Jesus and the gospel of God were promised by the prophets in the holy Scriptures.
The first coming of Jesus, His death, burial and resurrection are not things that the early church or anyone else made up.
They are things that God promised to do and that God had the prophets write in the holy Scriptures before they happened (Rom. 1:2).
Some verses of Scripture actually teach that God planned the first coming, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus before He created this world (I Pet. 1:20; Rev. 13:8).
The written prophecies begin in the Garden of Eden with God’s promise that the Seed of woman (a miraculous virgin birth) would bruise Satan’s head (Gen. 3:15), and they continue all the way through the Old Testament to the end of the Book of Malachi.
As an expert in the holy Scriptures, Paul would have been aware of most or all of the recorded prophecies.
He focused his attention on what some prophets said about Jesus.
Concerning His (God’s) Son Jesus Christ our Lord, the prophets said He was made a descendant of King David according to the flesh (Rom. 1:3).
We can read in the Holy Scriptures that two prophets (Samuel and Jeremiah) said that the Messiah will be a fleshly descendent of King David and He will sit on the throne of David forever (II Sam. 7:12-13; Jer. 33:17).
Put another way: The prophets wrote in the holy Scriptures that the Messiah would come as a human being in the line of King David.
This is the humanity of Jesus, the virgin birth of Jesus, how God made it possible for Jesus to die.
There was a time when Jesus couldn’t die (He couldn’t die until He took on a body of flesh).
Since He has been raised from the dead, He will never die again.
There will be a time when we can’t die (After we are raised from the dead, we will never die again).
But we don’t get our new eternal bodies when we die (We will get them on that great resurrection day).
The prophets said God’s Son Jesus Christ our Lord would come in the flesh as a descendant of King David.
To be clear: God didn’t have to select two descendants of King David to be the earthly parents of the Messiah.
But God inspired Samuel and Jeremiah to prophesy that the Messiah would be a descendent of King David, and God had that written in the Holy Scriptures for people to have a record of it before it happened, so God needed to pick two descendants of King David (He picked Joseph and Mary) to be the earthly parents of Jesus to fulfil what Samuel and Jeremiah wrote.
God also recorded the genealogy of Joseph in the Book of Matthew and the genealogy of Mary in the Book of Luke to verify that Jesus is a descendant of King David according to the flesh.
LET’S TAKE THIS A STEP FURTHER.
The prophet Moses wrote that Shiloh (the Messiah) would come from the tribe of Judah (Gen. 49:10).
There were 12 tribes of Israel that God could have picked a couple from to be the parents of Jesus.
But the people that God picked (Joseph and Mary) were from the tribe of Judah.
God picked them to fulfill what is written in the Holy Scriptures.
THERE IS MORE.
God’s Son Jesus Christ our Lord was born in the flesh as a descendant of King David.
But He was declared to be the Son of God with power according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead (Rom. 1:4).
“Declared” means appointed or identified.
Jesus was identified as the Son of God with a powerful sign.
The Holy Spirit raised Jesus from the dead.
That didn’t happen to a lot of people, so there should be no question about Jesus being the Son of God.
I WANT TO EXPAND ON THIS.
Jesus is God, the Creator; He always existed, but Jesus didn’t become a descendant of King David until the virgin birth.
This earth was about 3,000 years old before King David was born.
During those 3,000 years, Jesus was God, but Jesus was not a descendant of King David.
Jesus was not even a descendant of King David during the life of King David.
King David was dead almost 1,000 years before Jesus became a descendant of King David.
Jesus became a descendant of King David according to the flesh when He was born of Mary in that stable.
Jesus didn’t lose His position as God when He was born in the flesh.
Jesus just added or took on the position of a human being.
The Son of God became both God and Man; divine and human; the God-Man; the Messiah; God’s Son Jesus Christ our Lord when He was born in a stable.
King David is famous for prophesying several things about the death of Jesus in the 22nd Psalm.
He even prophesied that Jesus would be crucified before crucifixion was invented.
When the Church began on the Day of Pentecost, Peter said it was impossible for death to hold Jesus (Acts 2:24).
Peter preached that the prophet King David foresaw Jesus and said that God would not let His Holy One suffer corruption (Acts 2:25-27; Psa. 16).
“Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses” (Acts 2:29-32).
The Holy Spirit’s resurrection of Jesus from the dead was God’s declaration that Jesus is the Son of God.
Since God swore that Jesus would be raised from the dead and sit on David’s throne and had it written in the Holy Scriptures, it was impossible for that not to happen.
If it didn’t happen, God lied, all prophecy in the Scriptures isn’t true, or whatever.
But it is not possible for God to lie and the prophecies to be wrong.
Peter and many others witnessed the death and resurrection of Jesus.
But what about Jesus sitting on the throne of David?
Jesus had to be raised from the dead if He is ever going to sit on the throne of David.
Where was the throne of David?
It was on earth in Jerusalem.
And since Jesus hasn’t yet sat on the throne of David on earth in Jerusalem, it is impossible for that not to happen in the future.
Jesus will come back and reign as King of kings and Lord of lords in Jerusalem.
In closing: It is impossible for Israel not to get the Promised Land (Gen. 17:7-8), impossible for Israel not to get Jerusalem, impossible for the Rapture not to happen
(I Thess. 4:13-18), impossible for there not to be a Tribulation Period (Dan. 9:27), impossible for there not to be a global economic collapse during the Tribulation Period (Rev. 6:5-6), impossible for there not to be a devastating global pandemic during the Tribulation Period (Rev. 6:7-8), impossible for every jot and tittle of all of the prophecies written in the Holy Scriptures not to be fulfilled.
IT IS ALSO IMPOSSIBLE TO GO TO HEAVEN, IF ONE DOESN’T TRULY ACCEPT JESUS (JN. 14:6).
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him
