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.

I PRAY TO THE LORD JESUS REGULARLY THAT THE NEWS ON THIS WEB-PAGE IS 100% ACCURATE, AND I KNOW THE HELP THAT GOD GIVES ME DAILY IS OUTSTANDING “TO SAY THE LEAST”
PLEASE SPREAD THE NEWS ABOUT THIS WEB-PAGE THAT MANY PEOPLE WILL BE HELPED TO OPEN THEIR HEARTS TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN THIS CRITICAL TIME OF THE END OF DAYS:
GOD BLESS YOU ALL IN YOUR STRUGGLES, MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AS MY HEART IS WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (OUR SAVIOUR)
WE PREACH THE BLESSED HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IN JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR
1Cor. 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: AND THAT NO MAN CAN SAY THAT JESUS IS THE LORD, BUT BY THE HOLY GHOST.
“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
“And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.”
Here Jesus was alluding to the fact that the Doctrine of Eternal Security WILL EXPIRE WITH THE RAPTURE
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 (OF TRIBULATION) 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:
When Did The Disciples Receive The Holy Spirit?
QUESTION: What is going on in John 20 when Jesus breathed on the disciples and told them to receive the Holy Spirit? Prior to this event, Jesus told them He could not send the Holy Spirit to them until after He returned to His Father. Then after this event He told them to wait in Jerusalem for the arrival of the Holy Spirit. So what happened in John 20, how do we explain this?
ANSWER: In John 20:17, on Resurrection morning, Jesus had Mary go and tell the disciples He was returning to the Father. That night, He appeared to them in the Upper Room and invested them with the Holy Spirit. (John 20:22) During the day He had been to Heaven and returned. I believe He was sprinkling His blood on the altar in Heaven in His final act of atonement as our High Priest (Hebr. 9:11-12). During the next 40 days, He taught them about God’s Kingdom. Then, as He was leaving Earth, He told them to wait in Jerusalem until the Holy Spirit came upon them in power. (Acts 1:8) This was a special manifestation of the Holy Spirit that resulted in the birth of the Church, but the Holy Spirit had dwelt within them since the night of the Resurrection.
Is Baptism Required To Receive The Holy Spirit?
QUESTION: I have been attending a great bible teaching church and in the last few month have come to realize that the pastor believes that we don’t receive the Holy Spirit until we are baptized. We have spoken at length and agree that when you believe on Jesus as your Savior you are saved and will spend eternity with him and the father. He says that Ephesians 1:13-14 is saying we are sealed (as in marked) for our future inheritance, but the spirit doesn’t dwell and live within us until we get baptized and that is when we receive the promise of the Father. He says the Lord’s own baptism is our example of this and in Acts 2:38 Peter placed baptism before receiving the Holy Spirit.
I think that baptism is very important and we should do it because it is commanded and it is a public display of our choice to be a follower of Christ, but I disagree with my pastor on this issue. I have studied at length and hoped you might help?
ANSWER: I disagree with your pastor’s interpretation on several counts. There’s no reason to believe Jesus was only prophesying about the Holy Spirit in John 20:22. It’s reasonable to assume that having first been followers of John, several of the Lord’s disciples had been baptized. But there’s nothing in the Biblical record indicating that they all were, and even those who were did not receive the Holy Spirit at the time. Neither did a baptism precede either the event in the Upper Room or the Day of Pentecost. A literal reading of Ephesians 1:13-14 clearly says the Holy Spirit was sealed within us at the moment of belief. Paul repeated this promise in 2 Cor. 1:21-22 and 2 Cor. 5:5 without mentioning baptism. Saying he thought it would be redundant to mention baptism is putting words in his mouth.
It’s important to remember that in Acts 2 Peter was speaking in the Temple to a Jewish audience who had a different understanding of baptism than we do. They had used baptism (they called it a Mikvah) for centuries as a rite of purification before the Sabbath or a marriage or some other important undertaking. The Church uses baptism as a public declaration of having been born again. So for them it preceded an important change, while for us it follows it.
Also, to say that Jesus did not possess the Holy Spirit before His baptism is tantamount to denying His deity from birth. It would mean that before the baptism He was just an ordinary man. Remember John, who had known Jesus all His life, questioned His need for one. I believe He was being obedient to the Law by taking a mikvah at the outset of His ministry. The sign of the Holy Spirit descending upon Him was to show He was being equipped for ministry and to give an indication of His Father’s pleasure (Matt. 3:13-17).
The Holy Spirit dwells within us from the moment of belief to guide and direct us. But once in a while, He may come upon us in power to equip us for a special task or challenge. This is what happened with Jesus, it’s what happened with the disciples, and it’s what happens with us.
You and your pastor agree that this is not a salvation issue. Personally, I think if this is all you can find to disagree about, you should consider yourself blessed.

One can sense an invasion is taking place during these strange times. Email messages I receive indicate that many are recognizing this intrusion.
A writer recently used a line from a Shakespeare play for the title of his article expressing the evil that is proliferating. “Something wicked this way comes” well sums up the invasion many who observe the times are sensing.
Satan is working overtime, it seems. He no longer appears to be trying to hide his nefarious activities as in most previous decades. It’s all part of his having turned the spiritual hearts of mankind far enough away from the God of Heaven that Romans 1: 28 is now the operative mode for comportment of the world at large.
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.”
We have looked at this matter a number of times in these commentaries. Thinking-the ability to reason on a sound basis-seems lost to a broad swath of people in this generation. They have, it is observable, moved so far from God’s blueprint for living that they have been turned over to a reprobate mind. Their thinking, in other words, is turned upside down. Good they call evil and evil they call good.
And this brings us to the evil I would like to examine for the balance of this commentary.
The objects most closely held to the emotional hearts of the human kind have down through the ages been the children. It is true that cultures and societies have from time to time sunk to the level of murdering their children for the sake of offering sacrifices to their various gods. For example, in the case of Molech, into whose red-hot arms even the Hebrews at one time threw their young children. But for the most part, the children have been the most cherished possessions within the family structure.
The onset of the reprobate mind of Romans 1: 28 has been a progressive, spiritual dementia that now can’t be missed by anyone spiritually attuned to the invasion of evil.
The United States of America has become the most egregious offender in the matter of sacrificing children. More than 60 million babies (probably more, because this is a figure I’ve heard for several years) have undergone the fires of brutal murder while in their mothers’ wombs. Even more egregious, infants are now murdered outside their mothers’ wombs.
One Democrat politician says this is okay, so long as the baby is destroyed before he or she takes his or her first breath. The Bible, this politician says, declares that the person is not a living being until that first breath.
His party, as a whole, supports this as a political platform item. The children can, therefore, be sacrificed to the god of convenience-abortion after the fact of sexual activity-although those advocating for abortion always use the lie that this heinous murder of babies must be allowed for the health, either physical or psychological, and well-being of the woman. The woman, not the God of Heaven, has the right to choose.
Supposedly the most civilised of the civilised societies and cultures to have yet existed on planet earth-the United States of America-allows this atrocity to continue. It is nothing less than sacrifice to the god of this world-Satan. It is a form of spiritual insanity -reprobate mindset-to continue in this orgy of self-serving infanticide.
And now we are seeing front and centre news reports on a daily basis that the evil has produced duplicitous parameters within the confines of jurisprudence.
The most serious offenders of our laws have always been those who carry out their evil against the children. Even the murderers within our prison institutions recognise the absolute horror of those who abuse children, sexually or otherwise. These men will often take out their anger on those who come among their ranks who have been convicted of harming children in any way. The pedophiles are often brutally beaten and/or murdered once they are incarcerated.
At the same time these pedophiles are considered the worst of the worst in the community of prisoners, the law of this land looks the other way when children are subjected to something worse than pedophilia in a more sophisticated way.
We have read of the children who are read all sorts of sexual content by transvestites in some of our public school libraries of late. We are subjected to stories of children as young as five years who are taught by some institutions that provide day care how to “touch themselves” in intimate ways to provide self-given pleasure.
This is a progression of evil spawned by the reprobate mindset. If unchecked, this evil progresses-moves forward into hellish, more destructive areas of satanic invasion.
What could be more hellish than those things just mentioned as being perpetrated upon the most innocent among us? Well, here it is. We now are going into opening the youngest up for direct invasion from the demonic realm. The following news excerpt helps explain. It involves the Walmart chain now selling a book on demonic activity.
The [Walmart web] site categories the book as a “playful guide” to conjure demons to communicate with “the spirit”. The children’s product is listed for children ages 5-10 and “inspires” kids to “create demons of their own”. The book is a sort of coloring book whereby kids can draw demons using a system of sigils.
AS THE PUBLISHERS WEEKLY TEXT READS:
Leighton integrates a hands-on craft element into this playful guide that invites readers to conjure gentle demons by writing their sigils, which serve as “a phone number” straight to the spirit. The demons necessitate specific summons (a riddler named Corydon requires a sigil “drawn in bright red, the colour of a clown’s nose-preferably while you’re giggling”), and express specific characteristics and abilities that range from pragmatic to gross.
They include “Flatulus,” whose talent is passing gas; “Quazitoro,” an expert at finding missing objects; and “Spanglox,” “the best-dressed demon in the underworld,” who offers cutting-edge fashion advice. Leighton’s renderings of the multieyed, multiarmed, sharp-toothed demons are outlandish without being creepy, and the creative concept will likely inspire some readers to create demons of their own. Ages 5-10. (July)
On Walmart’s site, the book is placed in a category called “Paranormal, Occult & Supernatural Kids Books.” It is listed at $9.88 per copy. (“Wal-Mart Now Selling A Children’s Book of Demons,” David Sidman, Rapture Ready News, November 23, 2019)
While the Restrainer still continues to hold back evil below the level to which it will ascend during the Tribulation era, mankind is welcoming the invasion through the gates that once served to protect the most vulnerable. It is a sure signal that God will not long continue to tolerate the intolerable.
Children are innocent before reaching the age of accountability for their souls. They are, until reaching that age (differing with each individual), accounted as having their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. The inviting of the demon world into the minds of little ones is offense of major magnitude to the Creator of all things.
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6).
“The pretribulation rapture cannot possibly be true because no one believed in it until 150 years ago.” I hear or read similar statements almost every week.
Those who mock our beliefs in such a way make two critical errors. First, they base their denials of the rapture on church history rather than Scripture. Second, the claim that a belief in pre-tribulation rapture originated 150 years ago with John Darby is totally false.
This brings us to our next signpost on the path to establishing a biblical basis for the pre-tribulation rapture: church history. The purpose of this signpost is not to justify our belief in the pre-tribulation rapture on the basis of history nor is it to convince those who reject it on this faulty basis.
Rather, my intent is to provide those who already believe in the rapture with evidence of a belief in it from the earliest centuries of the church.
First, it’s necessary to understand the origin of the word “rapture.” The word comes from a Latin translation of the Bible from about AD 400 called The Vulgate. The Vulgate uses the Latin word “rapturo” to translate the Greek word harpazo in 1 Thessalonians 4:17.
The words “caught up” in our English translations capture the essence of harpazo in this verse just as the Latin word “rapturo” did when Jerome and others translated the Bible into Latin.
Starting in the late 1800’s, Bible teachers began using the word “rapture” to describe what Paul wrote about in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 as well as in 1 Corinthians 15:50-56 and Philippians 3:20-21. These students of Scripture chose a word to describe what the apostle wrote about in these texts. They did not make up a new doctrine, but applied a label to the event Jesus first mentioned an in John 14:2-3 and the apostles later described with greater detail.
So as we examine church history, we do not look for occurrences of the word “rapture” but rather evidences of a belief in Jesus’ return for His church as something distinct from His second coming.
NORMAL PROHETIC NEWS SECTION:
The Pentagon is considering sending several thousand additional troops to the Middle East to help deter Iranian aggression, amid reports of escalating violence in Iran and continued meddling by Tehran in Iraq, Syria and other parts of the region.
John Rood, defense undersecretary for policy, told senators Thursday that Defense Secretary Mark Esper “intends to make changes” to the number of troops deployed in the region. Other officials said options under consideration could send between 5,000 and 7,000 troops to the Middle East, but they all stressed that there have been no final decisions yet. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
The troop deliberations follow several decisions since spring to beef up the US presence in the Middle East because of a series of maritime attacks and bombings in Saudi Arabia that the US and others have blamed on Iran.
US President Donald Trump has approved those increases, even though he also routinely insists that he is pulling US troops out of the Middle East and withdrawing from what he calls “endless wars” against extremists. In October, Trump told his supporters that despite the sacrificing of US lives in Iraq and other parts of the Middle East, the region is less safe and stable today.
“The single greatest mistake our country made in its history,” he said, “was going into the quicksand of the Middle East.”
Asked about a possible troop increase, Trump told reporters Thursday: “We’ll announce whether we will or not. Certainly there might be a threat. And if there is a threat, it will be met very strongly. But we will be announcing what we may be doing — may or may not be doing.”
Later Thursday, Trump’s national security adviser Robert O’Brien said the president was open to sending more troops to the Middle East.
“If the troops are needed to deter Iran, we have the capacity to move them into the region — although I don’t think that’s happening right now,” O’Brien said on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report with Bret Baier.”
Military leaders have argued that the US needs to increase its presence in the region in order to deter Iran from conducting more and broader attacks. Rood provided no details to back up why the additional troops are needed, but said the US is concerned about recent intelligence indications suggesting an increased threat from Iran.
The troop discussions came as the Trump administration on Thursday accused Iranian security forces of killing more than 1,000 people in crackdowns against recent protests that have swept the country.
The estimated death toll is significantly higher than previously estimates from human rights groups and others, and the administration did not present documentary evidence to back up the claim. But Brian Hook, the US special representative for Iran, told reporters the tally was based on a variety of reports coming out of Iran as well as intelligence analyses.
Speaking at the State Department, Hook said the US had received and reviewed video of one specific incident of repression in the city of Mahshahr in which the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps had mowed down at least 100 protesters with machine-gun fire.
He said the video was one of tens of thousands of submissions the US has gotten since Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appealed last month for Iranians to submit evidence of atrocities by the authorities in putting down the protests. In it, he said IRGC forces can be seen opening fire on protesters blocking a road and then surrounding those who fled to nearby marshlands where they were sprayed with bullets.
In addition to the deaths, Hook said more than 7,000 protesters had been detained, with many sent to two prisons. Hook said that Pompeo had notified Congress on Thursday that both prisons would be hit with US sanctions for gross human rights abuses. It was not immediately clear when those designations would occur.
A year after uncovering a network of cross-border Hezbollah tunnels, the Israel Defense Forces said Thursday that the Lebanese terror group has beefed up its presence along the volatile frontier.
Military officials said that neither the destruction of the tunnels, nor Hezbollah’s recent domestic problems, have weakened the group’s desire to prepare for renewed conflict with Israel.
“We have a very serious enemy,” said Col. Roy Levy, the Northern Border Brigade commander, during a tour of the area. He said the terror group’s main focus is to entrench itself along the border area and “plan to attack us.”
Israel and Hezbollah fought a month-long war in 2006 that ended in a UN-brokered ceasefire. While direct fighting has been rare since then, there has been occasional violence, most recently on September 1 when Hezbollah fired a barrage of anti-tank missiles into the country and Israel responded with artillery fire.
Israel also has acknowledged carrying out scores of airstrikes in neighbouring Syria, many of them believed to have been aimed at Iranian weapons shipments bound for its Hezbollah proxy.
Israel considers Hezbollah to be its most immediate threat, saying the group has amassed an arsenal of some 130,000 rockets and missiles capable of striking virtually anywhere in Israel. More recently, it has accused the group of trying to import or develop guided missiles.
Last December, Israel announced that it had uncovered a network of tunnels that it said Hezbollah was building with the aim of infiltrating and carrying out terror attacks. Over several months, it systematically destroyed the structures.
Hezbollah has not commented on the tunnels, though the UN peacekeeping force UNIFIL has said the group violated the 2006 ceasefire.
In recent years, Israel says Hezbollah has taken over houses in southern Lebanese border villages to hide soldiers, ammunition, cameras and intelligence-gathering equipment.
Levy pointed across the tree-lined frontier to several small shacks that he said were Hezbollah positions, just a few hundred meters away from Israeli residents. “Civilians, farmers, children drive here every day,” he said.
Riot police and demonstrators have clashed in France amid the ongoing general strike by labor unions against proposed pension reforms. Dozens have been arrested in Paris alone as over a million people marched across the country.

As flares light up the night, stun grenades can be heard exploding. There is also what appears to be tear gas.
Reports from across France during the day spoke of sporadic violence on the sidelines of the protests, including the smashing of shop windows and security cameras and setting fire to bicycles and effigies.

Huge crowds turned out on Thursday to protest against the proposal by President Emmanuel Macron’s government to reform the French pension system.
The CGT union said around 1.5 million people marched in support of the protest, while the interior ministry estimates spoke of 700,000. Either way, the protest easily dwarfed the weekly ‘Yellow Vests’ demonstrations that have been happening every Saturday for over a year now.
IS FRANCE REACHING A BREAKING POINT? FUEL SUPPLIES NOW DEPLETED ACROSS WESTERN FRANCE AS THE MASSES RISE UP AGAINST CORRUPTION AND GOVERNMENT WASTE
Submitted by Dave Hodges on Friday, December 6, 2019 – 05:18. – By JD Heyes

Since around 2011 the French Republic began suffering a self-inflicted cultural and social wound when the government began accepting millions of migrants and refugees from the Middle East.
Today, France has the highest Muslim population in all of Europe (5.7 million), one of the biggest problems with terrorism, and cultural decay from within because Muslims and Western Christians just don’t mesh well.
But the self-inflicted wounds don’t just stop there. The country, under a Left-wing parliament and leader, President Emmanuel Macron, is about to suffer a massive energy crisis due completely to a bad political decision that stems from decades of bad political decisions.
France is bracing for major transportation disruptions throughout the country starting Thursday, as trade unions launch a strike in response to changes President Emmanuel Macron wants to make to the country’s retirement system, while port blockades have resulted in widespread fuel shortages across the country.
The site goes on to report that the disruptions and shortages will also hit the metro Paris area, which will essentially be shut down, including many national and international train lines including key Eurostar services.
In addition, many flights will have to be canceled as there will be shortages of air traffic controllers who say they plan to go to protests through to the weekend at least.
Already, hundreds of fueling stations have run out of gasoline and diesel fuel due to blockages of refineries that are now entering their second week, according to industry group UFIP.
Sponsored solution from the Health Ranger Store: The Big Berkey water filter removes almost 100% of all contaminants using only the power of gravity (no electricity needed, works completely off-grid). Widely consider the ultimate “survival” water filter, the Big Berkey is made of stainless steel and has been laboratory verified for high-efficiency removal of heavy metals by CWC Labs, with tests personally conducted by Mike Adams. Explore more here.
According to The Local, a news publication, construction workers have blocked refineries in Brittany since last week, while a blockade at La Rochelle has begun anew.
Various French media reported Tuesday morning that 390 gas stations in all have no fuel while an additional 389 had only limited supplies. Areas affected include Brittany, the west of France, some parts of eastern France near the Swiss border, and the southeast coastal area around Marseille.
‘TIRED OF NOT FEELING DEFENDED AND HEARD?’
Blockaders are protesting a fuel tax hike which is slated to take effect next year, and not just by a little. Construction workers claim that the tax will increase the cost of fuel prices by 45 percent, which adds an hourly cost of about €10 for an average mechanical excavator. Workers fear that smaller construction companies will be affected the most, which could drive many out of business and increase unemployment in the industry.
A year ago the French government suspended the fuel tax in the face of “yellow jacket” protests that were disruptive throughout the country. Macron tried to implement the tax as part of the Paris Climate Accords, but that didn’t go over so well with the French people.
In a separate fight regarding a different fuel tax, truckers from the group Organisation des Transporteurs Routiers Européens also plan to stage protests that will include rolling road blocks across France. These are slated to begin December 7 and will continue until the issues are resolved.
French truckers are angry over a two-cent increase in the diesel tax, Zero Hedge reported.
“Tired of not feeling defended and heard, road transport companies will express in the street the legitimate anger of the profession,” the group said in a press release. The protests will run “from December 7th and the following days.”
Adding to the potential chaos is the fact that yellow jacket protesters may also join in the fray, along with teachers unions, postal workers, hospital employees and even French police.
“It’s the coalition of all frustrations, and it demonstrates the isolation of the elite, the isolation of the president, even the personal rejection of Macron,” noted Dominique Moïsi, a French political scientist and the author of a recent book on emotions in politics.
“There is a deep sense of injustice right now, that inequalities have exploded, that the state is much less protective than it was of the weak, and much more protective of the strong,” he added.
Europe is collapsing — from within and without.
As China spreads its economic footprints across multiple continents with The Belt and Road Initiative, and exercises more and more control over the lives of its subjects via a combination its Social Credit Score system and vast surveillance state, it appears Beijing’s Big Brother has run into an issue that needs to be addressed to achieve world domination… inaccuracy!
Facial recognition systems are becoming more and more mainstream and accepted by an increasing number of ‘average joes’ around the world as the cost of security (or just ease of life). The problem is, as we detailed previously, for some segments of society, it is wildly inaccurate.
Specifically, after Oakland and San Francisco voted against the use of facial recognition, Rep. Tashida Tlaib claimed that “the error rate among African-Americans, especially women,” was 60 percent.
During a test run by the ACLU of Northern California, facial recognition misidentified 26 members of the California legislature as people in a database of arrest photos.
Some tech firms have tried to ‘fix’ this extremely high-level of inaccuracy for certain cohorts by tricking black people into being scanned.
But China’s tech behemoths have taken the process of training their algos on non-white faces to a whole new level.
As The FT reports, a deal between Chinese facial recognition company CloudWalk and the government of Zimbabwe means the latter will send data on millions of African faces to the Chinese company to help train the technology.
“African states tend to go along with what is being put forward by China and the ITU as they don’t have the resources to develop standards themselves,” said Richard Wingfield, head of legal at Global Partners Digital, a company working on human rights on the internet.
Perhaps somewhat shockingly, The FT reports that over the past few years, Chinese surveillance infrastructure has swept across regions from Angola to Zimbabwe. For example, earlier this year South African company Vumacam installed 15,000 surveillance cameras with facial recognition capabilities in Johannesburg, supplied by Hikvision.
In August, Uganda confirmed the nationwide installation of Huawei surveillance cameras with face recognition capabilities. Similarly, the Singapore government plans to install facial recognition cameras on its lampposts, a contract that Chinese start-up Yitu has bid for, according to local reports.

It’s not just a social credit score system spreading around the world from China that threatens the free people of the world; India’s Aadhaar National ID program has the full support of Bill Gates and the World Bank as a model for other countries to follow.
Gates said in a 2018 CNBC interview that it was “too bad” if someone thought that Aadhaar was a privacy issue:
The Gates Foundation has pledged to fund the World Bank in an effort to take the ID program to other countries.
Despite Gates plea that there are no privacy issues with Aadhaar, several court cases have gone to India’s supreme court on grounds of privacy violations.
The ID system has had serious security breaches, with access to a billion identities being sold for less than $10 through WhatsApp.
One of the court filings (Mathew Thomas vs Union of India) details the rise of China’s social credit system, comparing the Indian Aadhaar initiative to the Chinese program.
Perhaps the most sensational angle to this story is that the same international tech company that provides the infrastructure to Aadhaar also makes drivers licenses in the United States.
Idemia (formerly Morpho), is a billion dollar multinational corporation. It is responsible for building a significant portion of the world’s biometric surveillance and security systems, operating in about 70 countries. Some American clients of the company include the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, and the FBI.
The company website says that Morpho has been “…building and managing databases of entire populations…” for many years.
In the United States, Idemia is involved in the making of state issued drivers licenses in 42 states.
Idemia is now pushing digital license trials in the U.S. Delaware and Iowa are among five states involved in the trials this year. With the mobile licenses, law enforcement will be able to wirelessly “ping” a drivers smartphone for their license.
The Indian government recently announced a facial recognition program to monitor all social media platforms, called the Advanced Application for Social Media Analytics.
Big tech companies are using China, India, South Korea and other countries as testing grounds for smart cities, surveillance systems and command and control tech that are being stealthily rolled out in the west.
THE CASCADIAN SUBDUCTION ZONE IS THE #1 THREAT TO NORTH AMERICA-STEVE QUAYLE AND DAVE HODGES-THE COMMON SENSE SHOW
https://thecommonsenseshow.com/activism-agenda-21-conspiracy/cascadian-subduction-zone-1-threat-north-america-steve-quayle-and-dave-hodges-common-sense-show – Submitted by Dave Hodges on Friday, December 6, 2019 – 11:40.
I recently interviewed Steve Quayle and we compared notes on the Cascadian Subduction Zone (CSZ).
In the interview Steve and myself reviewed the extreme dangers we are facing. We further exposed how agencies within the government know exactly what is going on but they are refusing to tell the public for financial reasons (property values, insurance, etc). The CIA, for example, is conducting monitoring all along the coast all the way to the tip of the BAJA in Mexico. There is also substantial magma moving in two directions toward the coast.
We both performed some heavy lifting in this interview by identifying how people will perish when this area becomes active. The descriptions are graphic, but needed, given the lateness of the hour.
Ultimately, both Steve and myself believe that spiritual forces are at work. Steve and myself tie all this together, and more, in the following interview. Please make this go viral as the people have a right to know what is coming.
NSW FIRES LIVE: FIVE BUSHFIRES MERGE NORTH OF SYDNEY – LATEST UPDATES
Gospers Mountain, Paddock Run and Little L Complex, Three Mile and Thompson Creek fires overlap, and there are now eight emergency warnings in NSW as fire conditions worsen along Australia’s New South Wales and Queensland coasts
The fire came over the top and then came around here and took this, and one of the fire vehicles as well,” says Rob Meggs, Hilson’s neighbour. He’s standing in front of the still-burning ruins of his shed and office. His house survived, thanks to the efforts of the RFS and metropolitan firefighters, he says.
The shed was “a hoarder’s heaven”.
“It was chockers full of stuff, that might be a release in one way. But my office, that might be a bit more painful. It had some records in there that I won’t be able to replace.”
He warns us not to get to get too close, he thinks all the petrol cans have exploded now but there are still paint cans under the collapsed tin.
He stayed to defend the house.
“We were advised earlier in the week at a meeting that the conditions weren’t catastrophic and if you were physically able and prepared [you could stay].”
He’s been in his house 22 years, and hasn’t seen anything so big.
“I’ll still continue to live here, now that this has been through it’s probably good for another 50 years.”
At Kulnara, the Wright Creek emergency level fire this afternoon has taken out property.
Dozens of firefighters and trucks are on scene ahead of pa predicted wind change, but unruly wind changes earlier in the day pushed a fire past some properties, only to swing it back towards them another way.
Shane Hilson walks us around his property just north of town.
He points at a line of trees on the edge of his far paddock in the distance. “It came in over the back, then it went right up along the ridge, and then it came back all the way down the back and around… with the wind change.”
Asked if they’re in the clear now, Wilson laughs a little. “There’s nothing left to burn.”
Hilson’s wife and kids went to her mother’s place two days ago in Summerland Point. His father in-law Trevor Colliss, came down to help him.
He says his neighbour lost a shed.
They’re both bleary eyed. Hilson is nursing a tinny, and Collis says he has a cold cider waiting for him just up the hill.
“These fellas have been marvellous, hey,” he says gesturing at the RFS teams now driving out the gate.
Earlier we reported three fires in the Hawkesbury, Hunter and central coast areas had merged, now it seems five have merged
To give you an idea of the scale of the bush fire threat across NSW, a number of fires in the Hawkesbury, Hunter and Central Coast areas have now joined. The total area burnt by these fires is around 335,000 hectares. #nswrfs #nswfires
EMERGENCY WARNING: Kaloe Mountain Trail (Clarence Valley LGA)
Fire activity has increased in the area of Jackadgery and has crossed the Gwydir Hwy near Purgatory Creek Rd. If you’re in the area of Jackadgery Gap, seek shelter as the fire approaches. #nswrfs #nswfires #alert

Could it be possible that Nancy Pelosi and her minions in the House of Representatives had a completely different goal than we thought this entire time? As you will see below, the Democrats in the House plan to impeach President Trump, and it could potentially happen by the end of this month. But there appears to be zero chance that Trump will be removed from office by the Senate, and many will consider that to be a major victory for the Republicans. So why is Nancy Pelosi pushing ahead when she knows that this impeachment effort is going to fail? Could it be possible that this entire drama has simply been a political ploy to win votes in November 2020? (READ MORE…)

24 VOICES THAT ARE WARNING AMERICA ABOUT WHAT IS COMING, AND MOST OF THEM ARE BEING CENSORED AND PERSECUTED
December 5, 2019December 5, 2019 by Michael Snyder – http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/
We have reached one of the most critical points in American history, and there should literally be thousands upon thousands of voices sounding the alarm about what is coming. So where are they? This is a question that I have been pondering quite a bit lately. As you will see in this article, there are some wonderful people out there that have been trying to wake America up for a very long time. Of course many of them are also being viciously attacked and systematically censored by the social media giants. There is a price to pay for telling the truth in America today, and it is only going to get worse. (READ MORE…)

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR
by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behaviour, and gossip. – Romans 1:28-29
When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, he had two tablets that contained the Ten Commandments. The first four commandments have to do with our relationship with God, and the next six commandments have to do with our relationship with people.
Unrighteousness is the result of sinning against each other, and ungodliness is the result of sinning against God. And when you’re out of fellowship with God, you will have conflict with others, too.
If you want to run from God, He won’t stop you from exercising your free will. The prodigal son went to his father and basically said (loosely paraphrased), “Dad, I’m sick of waiting for you to die. I want my inheritance now. So give it to me.”
We would have understood if the father had said, “No, son, I love you too much. You will make bad decisions and hurt yourself. I won’t give it to you.” But that isn’t what happened. The father gave his son what he asked for.
The boy skipped out of town with his inheritance, and then he blew it all. He messed up his life. And he regretted it, of course. But his father allowed him to exercise his free will.
Be careful what you ask for, because you might get it.
The Bible describes what happens when you push God out of your life:
“Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip” (Romans 1:28-29 NLT).
God will allow you to pursue what you want to pursue and do what you want to do. But be careful. Because when you reject God, ruin follows.
