Current Events Linked To Biblical Prophecies. Everything is unfolding just as the bible foretold. Wars, Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, Extreme Weather, Christian Persecution, Violence and more!
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.

The Book of Daniel – Study #1
•Apr 1, 2014
The Book of Daniel – Study #1 – Includes an introduction to the entire Book of Daniel and verse by verse commentary on Daniel Chapters 1 & 2. Almost everyone looks at the book of Daniel with a sense of wonder and anticipation, because this is usually regarded as a prophetic book foretelling the future. This is true. The book of Daniel, together with the book of Revelation, marvellously unfolds future events as God has ordained them in the program of history. By no means has this book yet been fulfilled, neither has the book of Revelation. These two books, one from the Old and one from the New Testament, remarkably complement each other in their symmetry and harmony. The book of Revelation explains the book of Daniel. The book of Daniel lays the basis for the book of Revelation. If you would like to know God’s program for the future, it is essential that you understand this book of Daniel.

Rev. 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, WHICH SHALL COME UPON ALL THE WORLD, to try them that dwell upon the earth:

DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
And All These Things Will Be Given To You As Well
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
When times are uncertain, there’s a lot of talk about what we should be doing to protect ourselves. The internet is rich with advice. Some is competent and some is not, but almost all of it involves applying the ways of this world. Some advise us to stock up on stuff, so when there’s a shortage we won’t run out. Others say we should also buy precious metals to help preserve the value of our assets when inflation comes. The list goes on.
Some of this is OK, but there are a couple of things we should keep in mind when we’re trying to decide what to do. First, we should know that this advice assumes that the coming hard times are only temporary. You can’t stock up for life (or even a few years) and eventually, you’ll need to convert your silver and gold back into money. So you can only think of these things as a bridge between prosperity past and prosperity future. But when there’s no prosperity future you’re only delaying the inevitable.
Second, the Bible doesn’t command us to do this. In fact it specifically admonishes us against it.
“Do not store up treasure on Earth,” Jesus cautioned, “For where your treasure is there will your heart be also” (Matt. 6:19-21)
And in His ultimate example, He told the parable of the farmer who had more than his already full barns could hold, so he tore them down, built bigger ones, and filled them. Just when he finally had enough to feel secure and decided he could relax, the Lord said,
“You fool. This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself.” He finished with this warning. “This is how it will be for anyone who stores things up for himself but is not rich toward God.” (Luke 12:16-21)
Being rich toward God means giving generously to those in need.
Scarcity Vs. Abundance
No matter how we try to justify it, storing up is an act of selfishness. And it demonstrates a lack of faith by revealing a scarcity mentality when the Bible teaches an abundance mentality.
Let me explain. A scarcity mentality says there’s only so much to go around, so if I don’t get all I can while I can, someone else will get it and I won’t have enough. The motives behind the scarcity mentality are selfishness and faithlessness.
An abundance mentality says the Lord’s supply is endless, so I can share what I have now because He’s promised to supply all my needs in the future. The motives behind the abundance mentality are generosity and faithfulness.
The Biblical model is based on an abundance mentality (John 10:10). It teaches us to use the extra we have to help those who don’t have enough, depending on the Lord who gave us the extra in the first place to give us more as we need it. Thanking the Philippians for their gifts, Paul wrote,
“And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:19).
Notice he said “will meet all your needs”. We don’t give to others solely because God has met all our needs in the past, but also because He’s promised that He will meet all our needs in the future as well. The Philippian believers were experiencing hardship themselves, but still found a way to help support Paul’s ministry. This is what Jesus called being rich toward God.
THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE
I realize this all sounds counter intuitive. When we’re barely meeting our present needs the natural tendency is to use whatever is left over to make sure we can meet our own future needs. For many, the last thing on their minds is the plight of others. They don’t see that as their problem.
There are two sources of this kind of thinking. The first is called the Protestant Work Ethic. This is a non-Biblical theory wrapped in a thin veneer of Christianity. It’s attributed to the German sociologist and political economist Max Weber (1864-1920) and holds that hard work is part of God’s calling on our lives and is both a sign of our personal salvation and a necessary component for receiving His blessings.
It’s been summarised by the most popular verse that’s not in the Bible, “The Lord helps those who help themselves.” If other people are not being blessed it’s because they’re not working hard enough. Helping them out encourages their “laziness” and deprives them of the blessing they would receive by working harder.
God’s ways are not our ways, and the Protestant Work Ethic reeks of humanity. Of course we’re admonished to give our best effort at work.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Col. 3:23).
But our generosity toward others is the trigger that releases blessings for us, not hard work.
“With the measure you use (in giving to others) it will be measured to you,” Jesus said (Luke 6:38).
Paul confirmed this in 2 Cor. 9:6.
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
The other source is our government. Ever since the Roosevelt era, Americans have been told that our country is too rich and successful to tolerate having things like hunger and poverty in our midst. Therefore the government would assume the responsibility for eliminating these things by guaranteeing a minimum standard of living. Programs like Social Security, unemployment insurance, and the various forms of welfare were all instituted to encourage people to look to the government for help in times of need. Once again, we’re taught that the plight of others is not our concern. If people need help, they can go to the government and get it.
Both of these sources had the effect of taking God out of the equation so after a couple of generations of this, most of us no longer see God as our Provider. Regardless of what we repeat with bowed head around the dinner table, the truth is that too many of us look to ourselves, or if we’re among the 41 million people currently receiving food stamps, to our government for our daily bread.
TWO WAYS TO GO
So there are two approaches we can take in these uncertain times. The way of the world is to “Look Out For Number 1” by trying to stock up enough stuff to see you through the difficulties ahead, leaving others to fend for themselves or rely on government help.
The Bible’s way is to “Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You” by seeking out people in need and helping them with the extra the Lord has provided for you.
The most practical solution is to start relying on God right now.
“Seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well,” He said (Matt. 6:33).
He was referring to things like what we’ll eat and drink, and what we’ll wear.
Take some of your excess and find someone you can help with it.
I’ve said before that doing this pays the best return on investment available anywhere. Your generosity will be rewarded in this world (2 Cor. 9:11) and you’ll be storing up treasure in the next one (Matt. 6:19-21). I call that getting double your money back.
But Wait, There’s More
In addition, you’ll be learning how to live by faith in the One who has promised to meet all your needs and who never breaks His word, instead of relying on the uncontrollable ways of the world. Then if things get really bad and your neighbours have exhausted the supplies they stored up, you’ll be able to help them. And in doing so, you’ll know from experience that
God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work
(2 Cor. 9:8).
And finally, you can not imagine the change in perspective adopting this approach will give you. While others are plagued with uncertainty, you will experience a peace that transcends human understanding. Selah. 09-25-10

U.S. CHINA SEA TENSIONS HIT BOILING POINT
By Richard Javad Heydarian, Manila
US Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s just concluded Asian tour came amid fast spiking tensions in the South China Sea, with China deploying its newest aircraft carrier while warning Washington against “flexing its muscles” in the contested waters.
Beijing’s threat came in response to the US Navy’s deployment of two littoral combat ships, namely the Independence-class USS Gabrielle Giffords and USS Montgomery, officially launched to “bolster attack strength in the South China Sea” and ensure China will “abide by international rules.”
Both powers have expanded their naval presence and deployed an ever larger armada of military assets to regional waters, whether through conducting joint exercises with regional allies or unilateral deployment of their most advanced warships.
The US has recently made more regular freedom of navigation operations in the contested sea, deployments which have been more expansive in scope and featured increasingly more attack-oriented frigates and littoral combat ships.
Earlier this month, China deployed its first domestically-built aircraft carrier, known as the Type 001A, through the Taiwan Straits as part of “scientific trials and routine training” in a “normal arrangement”, according to People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) spokesman Cheng Dewei.
Responding to China’s expanding naval footprint in the area, the US Navy deployed the USS Gabrielle Giffords littoral combat ship, stationed in Singapore’s Changi naval base, on a freedom of navigation mission on November 15, while the USS Montgomery joined two Australian warships for naval exercises between November 6 and 12.
The Pentagon chief said in Manila that the US “rejects attempts by any nation to use coercion or intimidation to advance international interests at the expense of others”, calling on regional states to assert their rights and place China “on the right path.”
“The clear signal that we’re trying to send is not that we oppose China per se, but that we all stand for international rules and international laws and that we think China should abide by them as well,” Esper said, as his Pentagon looked to allay doubts about Trump’s commitment and focus on the region’s security.
JORDAN KING ABDULLAH: RELATIONS WITH ISRAEL AT THEIR WORST
By Jerusalem Post Staff
King Abdullah of Jordan said on Friday that relations with Israel are at its worst state, partly because of internal problems in Israel.
The king said this at a meeting of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy in New York.
He added, “We hope that Israel will be able to determine its future, either in the coming weeks or in the coming months.”
“If we won’t be able to solve the Israeli-Palestinian issue,” he said, “Israel cannot really become a part of the Middle East,” Mako reported.
Noting that the alternative to a two-state solution, one for the Jewish society in Israel and the other for Palestinians, is “much worse,” the king claimed that during “every year we lose [to indecision] it becomes much more complex and difficult for Israelis and Palestinians to progress.”
The King publicly prayed and kissed the ground of Naharayim, which is known as Baqura in Jordan, in early November after insisting Israel hand over the land as was agreed upon in the 1994 Peace Treaty.
Israeli farmers who own lands in what is now Jordan will need a visa to enter them. The laws governing such lands will be Jordanian laws.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered the King to connect “the train from Haifa all the way to Saudi Arabia” but the project is currently “stuck.”
Netanyahu said so during a special conference on Israeli-Jordanian ties, together with the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University.
Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE) will begin tracking smartphone locations of millions of people this week in preparation for the 2021 census, raising privacy concerns, reported RT News.
INE will track every smartphone in the country over a series of tests that will extend through 2020, and the government has assured Spaniards the project is completely “anonymous.”
INE partnered with Spain’s three largest mobile carriers – Movistar, Orange, and Vodafone, which account for approximately 80% of all smartphone users in the country.
Spaniards will be tracked between November 18 to 21, 24 to 25, several days in December, and two days in summer 2020.
INE will gather data on each smartphone user regarding the location of the mobile phones at various points of the day. The information will be used to paint a more accurate picture of people’s whereabouts during the workday and how they interact with others in the economy.
The data will be collected and analyzed for the next census of the population in 2021.
The data is also likely to help the government provide a better understanding of the economy and how to properly allocate funds for public services such as transportation and health care.
Spanish media have told people about the upcoming tests and how their location will be shared with INE.
The government’s plan to surveil its citizens through their smartphones has not been well received on social media.
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Authored by Naresh Jotwani for The Saker Blog,
Imagine a transaction between a farmer and a trader of farm produce.
The farmer’s time and energy are fully committed to getting a decent harvest in the face of fickle weather and uncertain market prices, while also looking ahead to the next season. He can spare no time or energy for complex business transactions or financial calculations.
The trader has plenty of time, energy and incentives to master the tricks of finance and business. To him, the farm produce is merely a commodity which he can buy or sell, process further for value addition, pledge as collateral, dump in a foreign market … or whatever else brings in good profit. Only the trader’s cunning limits what he can or cannot do with a given commodity – and there is no limit to that cunning.
The farmer’s life depends on hard work; the trader’s life depends on cunning. Therefore the farmer would invariably have a weaker hand in any transaction with a dealer.
The argument made here extends to any other primary producer – factory worker, miner or bus driver – whose life depends on “the sweat of his brow”. Cunning business and finance types can run circles around such people in any business dealing, and economic exploitation of primary producers extends seamlessly into violent crime, usury, money-laundering et cetera.
This has been true throughout history; but in recent decades – with technology and transport spanning the world – rigging of “free markets” has become hugely exacerbated. Owners and managers make big profits, while primary producers get the short end of the stick.
Around the world, economic systems are designed so as to exploit with maximum efficiency low-cost natural resources and primary labour. This is the so-called “globalist agenda” of the business and managerial classes.
The fig leaf of this narrative of greed and power is that maximum economic efficiency of exploitation is somehow “good for all of us”; of course no proof is needed for that cunning and noble-sounding claim.
In practice, there is almost no upper limit to how much primary producers can be exploited. The game is designed by the cunning people and totally rigged in their favour.
“To each his own”, the primary producer may say. But he would also surely need the assurance that the system would not let his family go under; that line must not be crossed.
This is exactly where a serious problem arises. The cunning ones do not really care if a few families of primary producers – deplorables! – do go under. For these self-proclaimed “elites”, other human lives do not count for much. While the simple-minded primary producers accept having to share the planet with the cunning ones, that courtesy is not reciprocated.
There is virtually no upper limit to human cunning. Sophisticated mechanisms of leveraged speculation, risk management and money-printing are devised to ensure that the cunning types profit under any conceivable economic situation. In catastrophic situations, when huge risk insurance payoffs would endanger the whole system, the government – also under the hidden control of the cunning – arranges huge bailouts, at public expense.
In this way, the most cunning 1% of the people around the world have built a seemingly crash-proof economic bubble – or cocoon – around themselves. They seem to harbour the illusion that, contrary to the law of impermanence, their cocoon will last forever.
As economic exploitation worsens, the chasm between primary producers and the most cunning 1% grows wider.Because the rules and laws governing any economy are man-made, this phenomenon is in reality the deliberate tearing of the fabric of society.
Because this phenomenon is today global in scope, it has created the global divide which we are witnessing. The primary motive force behind this phenomenon is “big finance” seeking big and risk-free returns. To that end, their core strategy is: “Whatever it takes”!
A primary producer in any society has only one rational, human hope: A life of basic dignity for him and his family. Not much to ask, surely – but the cunning will grudge him even that.
We can only hope that the future global economic system will be fairer to all segments of the global population; and that it will not, as at present, favour only the cunning, self-proclaimed “elites”. The economic system should heal the global divide rather than aggravate it.
While there is no limit to the cunning schemes of exploiters, there is a limit on how much deprivation and degradation primary producers will tolerate. Depending on history and culture, this limit varies from society to society. Beyond that limit, when they have nothing to lose, primary producers have no option but to rely on the strength of their numbers.
If the above analysis is accepted, then all “ideologies” – of the “right” and the “left” – are seen merely as obfuscatory tools of the cunning, aimed at herding labouring masses into their assigned zones of economic exploitation.

To conceal the decline, institutions only measure what can be massaged to appear positive. These statistics include inflation (Consumer Price Index, CPI),the unemployment rate, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and hundreds of financial numbers: net wealth, bank loans and so on.
Everyone knows from experience that big-ticket expenses such as healthcare (see chart below), childcare, rent, college tuition, etc. have been rising at double-digit rates, while shrinkflation has reduced the quantity and quality of goods even as price has remained unchanged.
In other words, the official statistics are gamed to appear positive even as the nation is being hollowed out. People sense the disconnect but since what actually matters isn’t measured, there are few objective indicators of the decline we all experience in everyday life.
And so while we’re constantly told the American consumer is in good shape, with manageable debt and rising incomes, in the real world auto loan defaults are soaring, 40% of those suffering from cancer are wiped out by the co-pays, and superficially middle-class households are one layoff away from default and insolvency.
America is being hollowed out even as we’re constantly hectored that all is well. We’re told saving $10 on a pair of poorly made shoes is a tremendous benefit of globalization and neoliberal policies, but does a couple hundred dollars in savings on poorly made stuff (which is itself offset by an unmeasured decline in quality and durability) offset the fact that a huge swath of American households can no longer afford to rent their own apartment or house, much less buy a house?
Does this modest reduction in the cost of consumer goods offset the upward-spiraling cost of healthcare that is bankrupting small business and households? Does it offset the stagnation of wages for the majority of wage-earners? Does it offset the insecurity of work and benefits? Does it offset the decline of competition and the subsequent domination of profiteering monopolies and cartels in the American economy?
New figures from the European Union’s statistical bureau, Eurostat, show that unemployment is rising in Sweden. According to Eurostat, unemployment there was 7.4% in August, whereas the EU average for August was 6.2 %. This leaves Sweden, on Eurostat’s unemployment ranking of countries, at number 24 out of 28. According to the daily newspaper Expressen, one of the main reasons for Sweden’s high unemployment happens to be the large number of immigrants that the country has taken in.
As late as February 2019, Sweden’s Minister of Justice and Migration, Morgan Johansson, mocked those who worried that migration would lead to mass unemployment: “Do you remember when the doomsayers were squawking that migration would lead to mass unemployment?,” he tweeted. “Now: unemployment continues to fall among foreign-born and young people. For domestic-born it is at a record low”.
In 2013, Social Democratic leader Stefan Löfven, who has been prime minister since 2014, said he would ensure that by 2020, Sweden would have the lowest unemployment in the EU. That is evidently not about to happen.
The disproportionately large influx of people who do not have the educational or language skills to work in the Swedish economy was never likely to help bring about the lowest unemployment in the EU. As previously reported by Gatestone, the small Swedish city of Filipstad exemplifies a place where the influx of non-Western migrants, some of them illiterate, with little or no education, has meant that the unemployment rate in that group is at 80%: they depend for their livelihoods on the municipality’s social welfare program.
In 2015, during the European migration crisis, nearly 163,000 migrants arrived in Sweden seeking asylum — primarily from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq, according to a recent report by the daily newspaper Aftonbladet. Out of those 163,000 migrants, 60,000 received a residence permit. In the group of people over the age of 15, made up of 40,019 people, only 4,574 get their livelihood from employment, according to Aftonbladet’s report. 18,405 people from the cohort live on welfare handed out by municipalities and 9,970 people receive funds for studying.
According to Aftonbladet, eight of the ten municipalities that received the most asylum seekers in 2015 have higher unemployment than the national average, and in all ten municipalities there is a higher proportion of the population living on welfare.
Aftonbladet mentions Ljusnarsberg in Örebro County as the municipality that received the highest number of asylum seekers — 230 per 1000 inhabitants. There, the unemployment rate is more than 10% and the number of welfare recipients is 22.9%. In Norberg, which received the second highest number in relation to its size, the unemployment rate is 8.6%. “The industries have a very limited need for people without experience and education,” saidmunicipal councilor Johanna Odö.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR ISRAEL, NETANYAHU?
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Joel C. Rosenberg
NOW WHAT? NETANYAHU INDICTED. GANTZ FAILS TO FORM GOVERNMENT. IRAN THREAT RISING. WHERE DOES ISRAEL GO FROM HERE?
This has been a crazy week in Israel, and people are asking me what’s coming next. Here’s a rudimentary road map. Just keep in mind there are likely to be lots of roadblocks and detours ahead.
On Wednesday night, Benny Gantz — head of the Blue & White centrist party — informed Israeli President Ruvi Rivlin that he was not able to form a government. This follows Netanyahu failing to form a government a month earlier.
On Thursday morning, Rivlin informed Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein that a 21-day period now begins in which any Member of the Parliament can try to gather 61 signatures from fellow MKs to form a government and become Prime Minister.
In theory, this meant both Netanyahu and Gantz could keep looking for ways to become PM — including forming a unity government in which the two would rotate the premiership.
Then came the bombshell — on Thursday night, Attorney General Mandelblit (pictured) announced that after more than a year of deliberations he had decided to formally indict Netanyahu on bribery, fraud and breach of trust charges in three separate criminal cases.
There is a strong likelihood that no one will be able to form a government in this 21 day period — if not, Israel will go to a stunning third round of elections. If this happens, the election would likely be held in March 2020.
Recent polls are clear: most Israelis do not want a third election and plan to punish any candidate or party they perceive as having pushed the country down that road.
This could cut hard against Bibi. The latest pollfinds that 49% of Israelis blame Netanyahu for failing to agree to a unity government. Only 25% blame Gantz. Even 36% of right-wing voters blame Netanyahu.
Actually, the situation is even more serious for Netanyahu. A new pollasks, “What should Netanyahu do after indictment?” 46% of Israelis say “Resign.” Only 30% say “Stay on until verdict.” Some 17% say, “Recuse himself.” Another 7% say they “Don’t know.” Remarkably, 30% of right-wing voters say “Resign.”
Legally, Netanyahu should absolutely be considered innocent unless or until he is proven guilty in a court of law. Expect him to mount a vigorous defense in the media and the courtroom, even while employing many delaying tactics to slow down the legal process. He will also appeal to a Knesset Committee that has the power to issue him temporary immunity, so long as he serves as Prime Minister, further delaying the legal process.
Politically, however, every supporter of Netanyahu is slowly — reluctantly — beginning to realize that he may be forced to step down, or even legally prevented from trying to form a new government.
Without getting too technical here, let’s just note that Israel has never had a sitting Prime Minister be indicted. These are uncharted waters. And the big question is whether members of his own Likud Party will, at some point, make the following case: “Bibi, we’re sure that you’re innocent. But you cannot divide your days both defending yourself and the country. It’s too much for one man, and the public won’t stand for it. For the good of the country — and the good of the party —you need to step down, clear your name, and then come back into the political sphere.”
I can’t say how this will play out. No one knows. But our enemies — especially Iran, a grave and rising threat — are watching all this closely and could be tempted to take advantage of Israel’s political division and confusion. I ask you to be praying for Israel and for our leaders. And buckle up. The only thing that is clear is that the road ahead will be quite bumpy.
Netanyahu: I will continue to lead the country in face of an attempted coup by the law enforcement arm
PM Binyamin Netanyahu sharply rebutted the Attorney General Amihai Mandlblit’s decision to indict him on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of faith. He accused law enforcement authorities of conducting “a polluted, tendentious inquiry” designed to set him up personally “or removal as prime minister.”
Netanyahu vowed he would continue to lead the country unless forced out by a High Court petition. He accused the police and prosecution systems of years of legal abuse, citing examples. The people have lost faith in the law enforcement authorities, he said. They deserve a decent, law-abiding system, and demanded that an external, nonpartisan commission of inquiry investigate the investigators and clean up the system.
Mandelblit earlier laid out in a public press conference his reasoning for deciding to indict the prime minister, saying he did so with a heavy heart but in full conviction that he was performing his duty.
Netanyahu fired back by charging police investigators backed by chief prosecutor Shay Nitzan of building their case against him by extorting lying admissions from witnesses by threats against their families. They should be brought to trial.
In a powerful fighting speech, Netanyahu said he was proud of what he had achieved for the country as its prime minister and vowed to continue. He promised to roll up his sleeves to persuade the voter in the coming election to make an honest decision to stand by him instead of those sworn to bring him down.
DEBKAFILE REPORTED EARLIER:
Attorney General Amihai Mendelblit came to an earth-shattering decision on Thursday, Nov. 21 to prosecute Binyamin Netanyahu for bribery – the first such indictment ever brought against a sitting Israeli prime minister. The case against Netanyahu consists of three indictments: bribery, fraud and breach of faith under File No. 4,000, fraud and breach of faith under Files 1000 and 2000.
The AG has passed copies of the files to the Knesset Speaker in the event of the prime minister seeking to invoke the law permitting him to apply for immunity while in office against trial for a criminal offense.
File 4000 Bezeg-Walla charges Mr and Mrs. Shaul Elovich with bribing the prime minister, and obstruction of justice. Elovich is accused of ordering the Walla news site to offer Netanyahu favorable coverage in return for alleged concessions to the Bezeq corporation, which he owned. In File 2000, Arnon Mozes, proprietor and editor of the large-circulation Yediot Aharonot, is accused of offering to bribe the prime minister, which he did not accept although negotiations continued. File 1000 alleges that the prime minster inappropriately received a steady flow of cigars and champagne worth thousands of shekels from a rich friend.
The Justice Ministry announced that the AG’s decision followed an exhaustive hearing of the prime minister’s attorneys in October and a thorough investigation of all their claims in his defense. The prosecution’s conclusions, covering hundreds of pages, were that none of the facts and arguments presented in that hearing were relevant for altering its decisions regarding the allegations against the prime minister. The AG insisted that there were no grounds to claim that because no money changed hands, bribery had not occurred.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday that he would ultimately accept the court’s decision in the legal cases against him, but continued to try and undermine the legitimacy of the corruption charges announced against him.
“Of course, I want to make clear that this whole process will ultimately be decided in court. We will accept the court’s decisions — regarding this there is no question,” Netanyahu said in a video posted to his Facebook page a day after claiming that police and state prosecutors were attempting a “coup” to remove him from power through fabricated indictments.
However, Netanyahu again reiterated his assertion that the decision to indict him had been reached by illegal means.
We will always act within the confines of the law, but this means that those who have not done so in the police or in the state prosecutor’s office must be probed. They must be taken care of, and there must be a correction made,” the prime minister continued.
“I want to make clear, those who choose the Prime Minister of Israel are the citizens,” Netanyahu added, thanking his supporters for standing by him and urging them to attend a rally on Tuesday in Tel Aviv, which organizers say they plan to further demonstrate their support for the premier.
“We currently have before us historic opportunities such as annexing the Jordan Valley, maintaining our security, building alliances with our neighbors and many things that must not be missed,” he said.
Still, his public acknowledgement that he will ultimately accept the court’s ruling appeared to be a step back.
Earlier Friday, citing Likud officials, the Ynet news site said Netanyahu intends to “wage war” against the indictment and seek to delegitimize the judicial system.
It also quoted political sources saying Netanyahu was planning to place the charges at the center of his campaign for the expected elections in March.
In a fiery speech Thursday after Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit announced his decision to indict Netanyahu in three corruption cases, the prime minister claimed the entire probe against him had been “tainted.”
“This tainted process raises questions among the public about the police’s investigations and the prosecution. The public has lost trust in these institutions. It’s a process that’s taken place over many years. This is selective enforcement on steroids. It’s enforcement just for me.”
Netanyahu listed a litany of complaints about the conduct of the investigation, charging: “These facts emphasize how much this process is tainted. It’s meant to topple a right-wing prime minister, me. I, who unlike the left and the slanted media, want to institute a free market, not only in the economy but also a free market of ideas, who wants to see a strong country, not a weak, shrunken, bowed country.”
He called to establish an independent commission to investigate the conduct of investigators in his cases.
“It’s time to investigate the investigators, to investigate the prosecution that approves these tainted investigations. I respect the police, I respect the prosecutors. There are hundreds of them. But we have to understand that they’re not above criticism. This isn’t just about transparency, it’s about accountability.”
The AT commenters responses to my book review of Foresight: How the Chemistry of Life Reveals Planning and Purpose, by Physical Chemist, Spectrometrist Researcher Dr. Marcos Eberlin were, in many cases, well informed and insightful, but one extraordinary commentary was provided by Dr. Ronald Cherry of East Tennessee, who is board certified in four specialties of medicine and an energetic researcher in matters of biochemical cellular physiology and micro anatomy and physiology.
Dr. Cherry provided me with a commentary titled “Zero Probability for Self-Generated Life” that I found compelling and worth summarizing and discussing for the many who are interested in the debate on the origination of life and the appearances of species of life, the question—does the Darwin Theory of Origin of Species hold up to modern scientific analysis that includes the microanatomy and microphysiology as well as the active complex biochemistry of the magic that is a living cell?
The life functions of a single human cell, as described by Dr. Cherry, are far more complex than the world’s most capable supercomputer, and impossible for man to duplicate using non-living materials due to the complexity and the sub-microscopic size and fragility of biochemical and cellular elements that are critical to the development of more complicated functional living things, but also that provide for maintaining the survival of the “lesser” forms of cellular life. The complexity and rapidity of life-requiring DNA transcription into messenger RNA, and then ribosomal translation into enzymes and proteins of structure and function challenges human understanding.
The living cell is enclosed in a protective membrane that is a perfect place for all the proteins and the other biochemically active molecules to perform chemical reactions to achieve important functions. For example, the DNA genetic code can direct and control, orchestrate, if you will, a cellular symphony where the 37 trillion cells of our human bodies produce a hundred thousand trillion enzymes and other proteins per second. Get your head around that one and consider whether such a symphony can result from random banging around of brainless chemicals.
Dr. Cherry asks the obvious question: where did the essential DNA code to run the cells come from, and how would the first strand of DNA, devoid of its cellular environment, initially run the cell — big if — the cellular environment had to be present to protect the DNA so it could run the factory. Dr. Cherry provides a lot of questions about the chicken/egg mystery, and points out the inadequacy of the self-creation theory, but there is no answer to this chicken/egg question, since there is no way to explain the circular puzzle. Cellular research has no explanation for how the first strand of DNA could perform its essential life generating work without the essential enzymes, ribosomes, energy production, and complex biochemical membrane functions that give DNA a place and an environment to work. DNA cannot work unless the conditions are right.
Nucleotides (the molecular building blocks of DNA, composed of phosphoric acid, deoxyribose and one of four nucleic acid bases) do not self-assemble in lifeless inorganic nature into the self-regulating, self-reproducing, mega-information containing polymers that we call genes.
Even if there were an ocean full of these essential building blocks of DNA, there is no enzyme (call it DNA synthetase) that exists that can assemble DNA from scratch.
Here we go again, circular causation questions: no enzyme to create the first strand of DNA, because DNA creates the enzymes and all enzyme assembly is based on DNA coding. The only DNA “assembly” enzyme in existence is DNA polymerasethat cannot assemble DNA from the aforementioned nucleotides in the absence of DNA since it requires the presence of a pre-existing DNA template and coding to produce the polymerase.
All enzymes are built on a DNA coded blueprint of messenger RNA, so the conundrum is clear; the cell’s first strand of self-generated DNA would require the pre-existence of DNA, and perfectly coded RNA. That’s a non-starter with a probability of zero.
The same circular problem exists with enzymes, large proteins that function to make cellular life. DNA codes the making of those enzymes that make things work. For example protein receptors, second messenger biochemicals directed back to the interior DNA, and enzymatic protein electrolyte channels that all work in a sequence that is regulated and highly choreographed and ordered by, guess what: DNA. But they have to be present for DNA to survive and function; whoops, circular causation strikes again.
All the regulation of cell activities coordinated by DNA ensures the proper pH and electrolyte concentration required for cell survival and DNA function. No DNA-assembly enzyme could exist prior to the existence of DNA so there could be no protective enzymatic membrane proteins prior to the existence of DNA, and no friendly environment in the cell. For all those reasons the first random self-assembled strand of DNA is an impossibility, doomed. Circular causality strikes.
Taking it a biochemical step further no DNA-assembly enzyme could exist prior to the existence of DNA because DNA codes all the proteins for the cell. There could be no RNA polymerase prior to the existence of DNA, an enzyme required for transcription of DNA into messenger RNA, that is the mechanism for creating essential proteins and enzymes. The immediate survival of the first self-generated strand of DNA would require the pre-existence of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase — not possible under the Darwinist incrementalist scientific theory.
Dr. Cherry points out that the DNA of the first living self-generated prokaryotic(single cell) entities, such as bacteria, would not have survived because these cells have a very short life span. The circular causation argument returns with a vengeance, the important role of DNA in creating survival and the urgent reproduction mechanisms for those simple cells.
Cells require energy produced in the form of discrete energy biochemicals called Adenosine Tri Phosphate (ATP), but such energy would be absent under pre-life inorganic conditions because enzyme-containing mitochondria, essential for energy use, and their membranous prokaryotic equivalent, require DNA-encoded information as a pre-requisite for their existence — again, not possible because functional DNA is required to produce mitochondria and the enzymes necessary for energy production. Thus the first self-assembled strand of DNA, if it miraculously self-assembled, would lack ATP energy and be dead in the water.
The only rational, i.e. scientific, alternative explanation for cellular life is that cells were created intact. That DNA genes appeared at the same time as all the biochemical entities required to make the cell that the DNA was controlling. All the proteins, enzymes, organelles of the cell, membranes and all the energy that drives the activities of the cell — the interdependence of DNA and the components of the cells and the cellular activities makes the circular causation problem the insurmountable problem.
The DNA code is primary, but the structures and functions for which it codes must appear ahead of time for its initial self-assembly and subsequent survival, an impossibility, because that would require the pre-existence of DNA ahead of the first strand of DNA.
What we know about cellular anatomy and physiology makes a theory of self-assembly irrational, because it is impossible genetically and biochemically.
Self-assembled cellular life is an irrational idea that is the basis for an atheistic explanation for life’s origin, but which cannot overcome the circular causation problem. The science leads Dr. Cherry to the conclusion that living things must be the product of undiscovered magic, or by rational design which was not random or accidental. Dr. Cherry asserts Atheistic claims for self-generated life require a magical or religious-like faith that contradicts the scientific evidence, observations revealing a design and arguing for a designer, a Creator, belief compatible with science.
I don’t know the nature or identity of the designer, but I must posit design when I see it. Dr. Cherry makes a strong case for design.

A “children’s book” available through outlets such as Barnes and Noble, Target and Amazon is raising eyebrows for its descriptions of how children can summon demons.
“Don’t want to take out the trash tonight? Maybe you’re swimming in homework? Perhaps that big bully is being a real drag? Well grab your coloured pencils and sigil drawing skills and dial up some demons! But be careful, even if these spirits are more silly than scary they are still demons,” states the overview of the book on the Barnes and Noble website.
Breaking Israel News reported: “For parents looking to introduce their kids to devil worship, Walmart and Amazon are now selling a new children’s book entitled: ‘A Children’s Book of Demons’. In the ‘about’ section, the publishers try to turn the act of summoning demons into a kid-friendly activity saying: ‘summoning demons has never been so much fun’.”
Publishers Weekly described it this way:
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.
Walmart has put it in the “Paranormal, Occult & Supernatural Kids’ Books” category and calls it a “handy Necronomicon for kids.”
STRONG QUAKE (6.1) HITS EASTERN INDONESIA
A powerful shallow magnitude of 6.1 has rocked the Papua region: This afternoons quake is the 14th major quake (M 6 or higher) of November and the 128th of 2019
A powerful shallow magnitude of 6.1 has rocked the Papua region, Indonesia. It is the 3rd major quake to strike the region after the magnitude 7.1 hit E of Bitung, Indonesia and a magnitude 6.0 NW of Kota Ternate, Indonesia on the 14th of November.
This afternoons quake is the 14th major quake (M 6 or higher) of November and the 128th of 2019. At the same date last year, 118 major quakes had occurred, in 2017, 99, 2016, 124 and 2015, 131.
Strong quake hits eastern Indonesia; no tsunami warning
A strong and shallow earthquake hit Indonesia’s easternmost Papua region on Saturday, but the epicenter was far from populated areas and there was no risk of a tsunami, officials said.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude 6.1 quake struck at a depth of just 10 kilometers (6 miles). Shallow quakes tend to cause more damage than deeper ones.
Rahmat Triyono, who heads the earthquake and tsunami center at Indonesia’s Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency, said there was no risk of a tsunami from the quake and there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
CHINA HOLDING MUSLIMS IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS TO SELL THEIR ORGANS IN MASSIVE ORGAN HARVESTING SCHEME
Submitted by Dave Hodges on Saturday, November 23, 2019 – 11:02. – By Ethan Huff Newstarget.com
An independent tribunal of legal experts has put out a shocking new report warning that Communist China’s “crimes against humanity” are now being perpetrated against Uighur Muslims, who are being held in concentration camps as they await having their organs harvested as part of China’s illicit organ trade.
According to the nonpartisan China Tribunal, it’s not just Falun Gong practitioners whose vital organs are being removed from their bodies by the Chinese government and sold to wealthy “transplant tourists.” It’s also these Uighur Muslims, as well as Tibetan Buddhists and House Church Christians, all of whom Communist China sees as a threat to its subsistence.
Led by Sir Geoffrey Nice, the chief prosecutor involved in the case against Serbian war criminal Slobodan Miloševi?, the panel members who published the report had previously held hearings at which Falun Gong practitioners, ethnic Uighur Muslims, and various eyewitnesses testified about the horrors taking place in China.
The panel members also tried to include witnesses favorable to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in an attempt to hear both sides, but Chinese officials refused to cooperate. Thus, the conclusion they came to is that China is targeting political and religious dissidents, imprisoning them, and later harvesting their vital organs for profit.
This was further proven through undercover efforts by the tribunal, which contacted more than a dozen Chinese hospitals undercover to inquire about finding organs for transplants. Many of these facilities openly admitted that the organs they had in stock had come specifically from Falun Gong practitioners, while other hospitals admitted that they simply came from “prisoners.”
The Chinese government itself also admitted to such in the past, though it now claims that the practice ended in 2014. But this isn’t actually the case, as the official Chinese state media admitted as recently as 2017 that the Chinese government still harvests organs from prisoners – though it claims that this organ donation system is “fair” and “hailed” by the international community.
Since the Communist Chinese government is based on the idea that there is no God, members of Falun Gong, which believe otherwise, are regarded as an “evil cult” – these being the exact words used by former Chinese President Jiang Zemin to describe them.
Communist China, the government of which is admittedly atheistic, maintains a similar position of animosity against all religions, including Christianity.
This is why Chinese Christians continue to endure horrific persecution at the hands of their godless government, which has repeatedly made it clear that it will not tolerate any other belief systems besides godless communism.
As for the Muslims who are also being targeted, Randall Schriver, the Pentagon’s assistant secretary of defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs, says that as many as three million Uighur, Kazakh, and Kyrgyz Muslims are now living in Zinjiang concentration camps due to their beliefs, which don’t align with either communism or atheism.
“Survivors say they undergo systematic torture and indoctrination at the camps; officials force them to learn Mandarin, the dominant Han language, eat pork, and memorize songs praising the Communist Party and its leader, Xi Jinping,” reports Breitbart News.
“THOSE WHO DO NOT COMPLY FACE EXCRUCIATING TORTURE.”
Part of this torture involves these religious prisoners having their organs forcibly removed from their bodies without consent, which has now been proven as factual, thanks to the admissions of the Chinese hospitals where these stolen organs are being sold and implanted into the bodies of wealthy buyers.
“They shoved feces into his mouth,” one witness told investigators about what goes on at these concentration camps.
“They forced a toilet brush handle into his anus. They pushed the handle so hard that he couldn’t defecate. They also handled his genitals and forced his back against an extremely hot heating unit. They woke him at night by pouring cold water on him, or by piercing his skin with needles.”
