DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
FOR MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN:
By pastor Mike Taylor – http://pastormiketaylor.blogspot.com/ (EXTRACT FROM HIS ARTICLE (NOW ON ARTICLES SECTION OF THIS WEBPAGE:
But God knew that man’s pride would not want to submit to God’s offer of this grace and mercy. God knew that only a remnant down through the ages would accept this free offer, which is a gift that none of us can do anything to receive it, but by faith believing.
I can only imagine the shock that must have filled the angelic host who gasped in disbelief of the refusal of mankind to return to what was lost, and that is a relationship with God who created them and Paradise lost. The Angelic host see how “one little sin” in the Garden of Eden, has thus far brought mankind to the point it is in today. God has allowed mankind to earn the wages of his own wilful pride and the sins he commits.
“20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:20-23)
Matt. 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
Matt. 22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
Matt. 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
Matt. 22:5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
Matt. 22:6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
Matt. 22:7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
Matt. 22:8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
Matt. 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
Matt. 22:10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
Matt. 22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
Matt. 22:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Matt. 22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

WARSHIPS, FIGHTER JETS MOVED TO FORWARD LOCATIONS; ARMED FORCES TOLD TO PREPARE FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS: REPORT
After the violent clashes on Monday night (15 June) and speculations of further escalation of conflict, the Indian government is said to have given a go ahead to the armed forces to procure and stock up armaments in its war reserves, The Economic Times reported.
Despite the initiation of dialogue to defuse tension on both sides, the decision has been taken as Indian authorities do not plan to be unprepared in case of any potential situation, according to the sources quoted by ET.
Indian Navy, the report suggests, has also been ased to make necessary deployments near the Malacca Strait and elsewhere in the Indo-Pacific region, as required to counter the dragon’s aggression.
The report also claims that Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat is responsible for coordinating with the three services as to what should be prioritised as per the requirements.
Indian Air Force has also deployed some of its fighter jets and other crucial assets at forward locations, the report added.
Earlier on Monday night, Over twenty Indian Army personnel were killed in a violent clash with the Chinese troops in Eastern Ladakh’s Galwan valley, it was reported.
The Chinese forces too suffered casualties in the clash but the exact number is not yet known. ANI though has cited Indian intercepts to reveal that China suffered 43 casualties which include dead and seriously injured personnel.

My wife one day last week said to me, “You need to write something about all this insanity going on in the world. This just isn’t right.” My response to her was, “What good will writing do? The time for talk is over.”
I have had so many things that I have wanted to say about things that are going on but the situation in this country changes from hour to hour. By the time I finish writing this another insane situation is likely to have happened in this country.
We are under attack. This Civil War/Revolution/Communist takeover is well under way. We are getting punched in the face on a daily basis and it seems all we can do is talk.
We have Governors picking and choosing winners and losers for business and people’s livelihood. Marxist across the country are erasing our history as statues fall across the nation. The list could go on and on with the offences against us.
We know who the enemy is. Sides are being chosen. I hope you choose wisely. We the People are the enemy of this deep state establishment and they aim to eradicate us. These attacks on us and our way of living will never end. It will never end. They will always hate us. Always. Nothing you can do will change that. Nothing. But more importantly they will never accept us. They will not accept our views of the world, our ideals, our guns and our religions. We are a very different people from these commies on the left and those who would like to see this country fall. We value the individual. We value free thought, free speech, free religion, we value freedom. They hate us for it. They aim to rule us, and we will not be ruled by them. They will never give up their quest to implement socialism/communism. They never quit and they’ll never stop. We the People are the enemy.
History it seems has a way of repeating.
Prepare for the most brutal war that this world has ever seen. It’s coming. I don’t think anything stops it now. Hopefully we can set things right if we win, or at least die trying.

It’s no longer secret; the elite in this world want to eliminate national sovereignty in favor of a New World Order, a worldwide governing authority.
The UN’s objective to establish a worldwide government has long been visible through its Agenda 2030 goals. During the past couple years, the desire has for such a world governing body has burst into the open when conferences and websites supporting the call for a New World Order.
Much of what we are seeing in 2020 represents a concerted effort by elite globalists to prepare people in the United States and the world to accept the authority of the coming New World Order (NWO).
I remain amazed at how the left has used the media to create a psyche of fear in the wake of COVID-19. I am aware that the coronavirus has caused much suffering. However, the evidence does not support the shutting down of economies and the widespread panic that has resulted from it. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently announced that it’s highly unlikely for one with no symptoms to spread this virus. Does this not make quarantining the healthy and the public wearing of masks unnecessary?
Furthermore, for the majority of people, COVID-19 is not any more deadly than the typical flu. Those under seventeen have a greater chance of lightning striking them than of this virus killing them.
In spite of this, media and left-leaning politicians have convinced us that we are incapable of deciding the risk inherent in public gatherings. Most states closed down “non-essential” businesses and churches to protect us from ourselves. Many governors have put draconian measures in place that have more to do with control than with safeguarding our health.
How does this relate to the New World Order? The third goal of the UN’s Agenda 2030 states the mission of this coming worldwide government will be to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.” In other words, we must turn over the responsibility for our health to a government agency because they supposedly possess a better understanding of how to protect our health than we do.
We have already seen calls for this type of ruling authority to deal with this virus. On March 26, 2020, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Gordon Brown, called upon world leaders to create “a temporary form of global government” in order to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
I believe the widespread wearing of masks in public symbolises the willingness of people to submit to a worldwide regime who promises to act in their best interest.
On May 21, 2020 the New England Journal of Medicine said this about wearing masks, “The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.” The writer of the article concluded that masks reduce the fears of people, but are otherwise ineffective.
Until the arrival of COVID-19, the supposed climate change crisis had been the key impetus behind the calls for the NWO. Both Agenda 2030 and its corresponding Green New Deal in the United States assume that the only way for us to protect the environment from imminent catastrophe is to join together under a totalitarian Marxist government.[i]
Inherent in the goals of these initiatives is the unmistakable presupposition that only a socialist type of government can save the environmental from the dangers posed by climate change. Hollywood celebrities, politicians around the world, and even Pope Francis repeatedly warn us that only a Socialist New World Order can save the planet and thus preserve it for future generations.
Who decided that only a Marxist world order can combat climate change? Even if one concedes that climate change is an emergency requiring immediate action, why is it necessary for the entire world to forsake nationalism and free enterprise in order to address it?
According to the most recent statistics of the International Energy Agency (IEA), the United States leads the world in declining CO2 emissions. On February 11, 2020, the IEA stated that the “United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis—a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt.US emissions are now down almost 1 Gt from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period.”
China, on the other hand, provides us with ample evidence that totalitarian socialist governments are the absolute worst at controlling air pollution. It seems to me that the Marxist solution proposed by Agenda 2030 and the Green New Deal is the worst possible route to take since it has already proven incapable of decreasing pollution in our environment.
…we hear growing cries to either disband police departments or defund them. The future result of such action will likely lead to UN intervention to quell the resulting violence and lawlessness that will happen without our police.
Perhaps this is what Henry Kissinger was thinking in 1992 when he spoke these words to an audience in France, “Today American’s would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful.”
This also fits perfectly with goal number 11 of the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda, “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.” The intent of the UN is for it, rather than individual nations, to ensure the safety of all people from the evils of racism and injustice.
We know from Scripture that racism and injustice will increase exponentially during the coming tribulation despite the lofty goals of the UN. The long-awaited utopia will eventually become a killing machine under the leadership of the antichrist.
The Marxist globalists pledge to guarantee equal outcomes for all people via the New World Order.
The graves of over a hundred million people from the last century testify to deceitfulness of such a claim, which is impossible to achieve for at least a couple reasons. First, in any totalitarian regime it’s the ruling class that defines the “equal outcome” for the masses, not the people. And secondly, the elite always resort to deadly force in dealing with those who disagree with the them regarding the nature of such “equal outcomes.”
As has been the case since the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, the desire for a one world government represents a rejection of God and His Word revealed on the pages of the Bible. People have long believed they can institute a better plan for governing the world than God.
As people turn away from Jesus and the truth He embodies, the more likely they become to look to government as the answer to their woes and grievances. And once the left and the media convinces them that the United States does not have their best interests at heart, they become more vulnerable to the cries for a worldwide governing authority that falsely promises a utopian existence for them.
Such things as new laws, more government regulation, and a worldwide governing authority will only continue the downward spiral of this Christ-rejecting world into lawlessness and destruction. It saddens me to see so many people, even Christians, sucked into prevailing mindset that we need more government control to combat social ills and disease.
The answer is found in the pages of Scripture. It’s Jesus and Him alone. The future of this world consists of unimaginable death and destruction. For those of us who know the Savior, we look forward to His soon return and our journey to the place He is now preparing for us.

Make no mistake, this will be absolute tyranny on a global scale. The mainstream media is silent as the elitists who want power over every human on Earth plan to meet in a Swiss town to discuss “the Great Reset,” a push to a one-world currency – one in which they have ultimate control.
The plan is to make sure a “post-COVID” world is built the way they want it. Slavery and totalitarian control. If you haven’t figured out now that the system was put there to protect them, not you, line up for the Bill Gates sponsored vaccine. Things are going to get much uglier, and quick. The objective of this meeting is the “rebuilding” of the world’s economic and social system in order to make it more “sustainable.”
It sounds good, right? But, by more sustainable, they mean more enslave able.
“Nothing will ever be the same again.” It was the mantra that we heard in many countries at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It came with a warning that a “new normal” would replace the existing order. Easy travel, interpersonal relations, large gatherings, even things like shaking hands would have to give way to long-term social distancing, drastic rules, and surveillance. But these changes on the personal level are only a part of the picture. The World Economic Forum, together with Prince Charles of England and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has launched an initiative revealingly dubbed “The Great Reset,” with the objective of “rebuilding” the world’s economic and social system in order to make it more “sustainable.” –Life Site News
The idea of a “Great Reset” has received the full support of the United Nations secretary-general, António Guterres, former president of the Socialist International from 1999 to 2005. Is anyone surprised? The reset has been planned for a long time:
It was already being talked about before the Chinese coronavirus was moving out of Wuhan. On December 30, 2019, for instance, the Financial Times published a YouTube presentation under the title “Why capitalism needs to be reset in 2020.” (As if any country has capitalism anymore. Most, and yes, even the United States, are now at the very least, corporatocracies – the merging of governments and corporations, masquerading as crony corporatism.)
But the globalists are pushing a theme that capitalism (which means no interference in the market/economy) is the problem, even though literally everything is centralised. The recurring theme is “stakeholder capitalism,” by which “a company’s approach to people, the planet, and innovation — including how it protects and applies the value-added of its data — must figure more prominently in capital-allocation decisions”
Palestinians Living In The West Bank, What The Bible Calls Judea, Say With ‘100% Certainty’ That Implementation Of Annexation Has Already Begun
https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/palestinian-mayor-abu-dis-west-bank-says-implementation-annexation-judea-samaria-by-israel-already-begun/ – by Geoffrey Grider June 17, 2020
The bulldozers arrived in Abu Dis to demolish a one-story structure that was under construction, and whose owners had ignored repeated warnings by Israeli authorities to halt the building. The structure belonged to the Surkhi family in Abu Dis. The bulldozers also tore down a wall surrounding a playground. “I can tell you 100% that the implementation of the annexation plan has begun,” Abu Hilal said. “I see what happened today in Abu Dis as the beginning of the annexation plan.”
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:
As far as the mayor of Abu Dis is concerned, Israel has already begun implementing its plan to apply its sovereignty to parts of the West Bank – including his town, southeast of Jerusalem.
When Israel was regathered on May 14th, 1948, in accordance with millenia-old bible prophecies, it sent shock waves around the world. A similar milestone event happened again with the 6-Day War in 1967, a war so incredible that soldiers who fought in it said they witnessed the miracle power of Almighty God in giving Israel the very improbable victory.
“Be it known unto the king, that we went into the province of Judea, to the house of the great God, which is builded with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goeth fast on, and prospereth in their hands. Then asked we those elders, and said unto them thus, Who commanded you to build this house, and to make up these walls? nd thus they returned us answer, saying, We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and build the house that was builded these many years ago, which a great king of Israel builded and set up.” Ezra 5:8,9,11 (KJB)
Now here in the middle of June 2020, we stand on the precipice of a third such paradigm-shifting event with the annexation of Judea and Samaria, what unsaved people call the West Bank and Gaza Strip, that residents there say has already begun ahead of the July 1st mandated deadline.
“Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.” Ezekiel 11:17,19,20 (KJB)
Now is the time for Israel to move, while Trump is still president of America and Netanyahu has yet again dodged all the slings and arrows constantly shot at him by his political enemies. I told you all through 2019 that this year would be the ‘year of prophecy’, and halfway through it, it has not only been that but has far exceeded my previous expectations.
Buckle up and be ready to fly, Flight #777 is on the runway.

Mayor of Abu Dis says “I can tell you 100% that the implementation of the annexation plan has begun.”
FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: On Wednesday morning, the mayor, Ahmad Abu Hilal, woke up to the sound of Israeli bulldozers entering the Abu Mugheira area in the Suwwaneh neighborhood of Abu Dis.In recent weeks, every move by the Israeli authorities in the Jordan Valley and some Palestinian villages in the West Bank has been interpreted as a sign that Israel has begun implementing the annexation plan on the ground. Some Palestinians claimed that the IDF has removed signs warning Israeli citizens from entering PA-ruled areas, to pave the way for implementation of the plan.
Others claimed that the Israeli authorities have begun distributing water and electricity bills to Palestinians living in areas that could be annexed by Israel, adding that this was an indication that the Jewish state was serious about its intention to implement the plan.
The bulldozers arrived in Abu Dis to demolish a one-story structure that was under construction, and whose owners had ignored repeated warnings by Israeli authorities to halt the building. The structure belonged to the Surkhi family in Abu Dis. The bulldozers also tore down a wall surrounding a playground.
“I can tell you 100% that the implementation of the annexation plan has begun,” Abu Hilal said. “I see what happened today in Abu Dis as the beginning of the annexation plan.”
How is the demolition of the illegally built structure related to the Israeli annexation plan?
The mayor said that the structure was targeted because it’s “located on the western side of Abu Dis, very close to the Israeli separation wall.” The Old City of Jerusalem is located only a few kilometers to the west of Abu Dis, but the two areas are separated by large concrete slabs that make up the security fence.
Abu Hilal said that in addition to the structure, the bulldozers also demolished a wall surrounding a soccer playground being built by the Abu Dis municipality in coordination with the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Sports and Youths.
“The demolition began around 1:00 am,” Abu Hilal recalled. “We believe the demolition is directly linked to the annexation plan. The structure and wall are located very close to the separation wall and are part of Area C, which is under exclusive Israeli control, he noted.
The annexation plan, if implemented, would “particularly pose a threat to the western parts of Abu Dis,” the mayor claimed. “They [Israel] want to redraw the fence so as to include more land from Abu Dis in the areas slated for annexation.”
In addition, the mayor said, the annexation plan would also see the Palestinian village losing much of its land on its eastern side, where Ma’aleh Adumim is located.
ABU DIS first appeared in the headlines after the signing of the Oslo Accord in 1993.
An unofficial draft agreement between PA President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli politician Yossi Beilin, who in 1995 served as Economic Minister, stated that Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries would be expanded to include nearby Arab neighborhoods (called “Palestinian boroughs”) such as Abu Dis, as well as Ma’aleh Adumim, Giv’at Ze’ev, Givon and adjacent areas. Together, these areas would be called the City of Jerusalem, which would be managed by one municipality with two Israeli and Palestinian sub-municipalities. The Palestinian boroughs would be placed under Palestinian sovereignty, while the Israelis boroughs would be under Israeli sovereignty.
Abu Dis was again in the headlines in 2000, when the PA started building a parliament building there. The construction of the new parliament building sparked rumors that Israel and the PA had reached a secret agreement to turn Abu Dis into the capital of a Palestinian state.
The number of people currently living in Abu Dis is estimated to be 30,000, including thousands of students and faculty members studying and working at Al-Quds (Jerusalem) University, which is also located west of the town, near the security fence.
Abu Dis is located in both Area B and Area C of the West Bank. Some 3000-4000 Abu Dis residents live in Area C, which may end up being under Israeli sovereignty if and when the annexation plan is carried out. The Oslo Accord divided the West Bank into three administrative divisions: Area A, B, and C. Area A is exclusively administered by the PA. Area B is administered by both the PA and Israel. Area C, which contains Israeli settlements, is administered by Israel.
“The Oslo Accord placed our town under Area B and C,” Abu Hilal said.
Voicing concern over the planned annexation, the mayor said that he and the residents of the town have been in touch with the PA prime minister and government to coordinate their efforts to confront the plan.
“The annexation plan will take lots of our land,” he added. “Abu Dis will become much smaller. We will be turned into an enclave with a large number of residents. We will become one of the most densely populated areas in the region. The annexation plan will have demographic, economic and political implications for Abu Dis and its residents.”
Asked if Palestinians living in his town would accept Israeli citizenship as part of the planned annexation, Abu Hilal said: “I don’t believe Israel is interested in giving its citizenship to Palestinians. The Israelis don’t want Palestinians with Israeli citizenship. They are already going after Palestinians living in east Jerusalem who carry Israeli ID cards. Israel is not interested in the [Palestinian] residents; it only wants the land.”
Abu Hilal denied reports in the Israeli media that claimed that the PA had withdrawn its security forces from Abu Dis after Abbas’s May 18 decision to renounce all agreements and understandings with Israel, including security cooperation.
“The Palestinian police is still here; they did not leave,” Abu Hilal explained. “The police station is still here; the security forces only reduced their activities; they’re not doing the same work they used to do before.” READ MORE:

The Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates says his foundation is funding the construction of factories for seven coronavirus vaccine candidates.
Gates said the foundation would end up picking only one or two of the seven, meaning billions of dollars spent on manufacturing would be abandoned.
He said that in a situation where the world faces the loss of trillions of dollars to the economy, wasting a few billion to help is worth it.
