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.”

JESUS CHRIST RETURN FOR HIS CHURCH IS “IMMINENT

Matt. 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Matt. 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Matt. 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be

DON’T WAIT FOR THE LAST MINUTE

We are currently in the “Birth Pangs” of the coming “7 year TRIBULATION” period, where all the Nations on Earth will be subject to God’s Wrath on an UNGODLY World. The Rapture of Jesus Christ Church is TOTALLY” imminent; And what will follow after that will be massively more devastating that we are seeing right now (Read Revelation Ch 6 – 22) God is trying to get everyone’s attention to the coming Judgements; He does not want ANYONE to perish, but all to come to repentance. He loves us, but will not stand idly by and watch the World, (His Creation) turn to sin and debauchery). We are currently living in a fallen “Satanic” World where “EVIL”, is totally accepted, and God and his Love is being exponentially rejected. The time has come when God HAS TO intervene, and he is (The prophetic word listed in his Word the Bible is being fulfilled exponentially).
——————————————————
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 THIS WORLD IS IN “DISTRESS” AND IT WILL SOON BE IN TRIBULATION?
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:

——————————————-

How Can I Gain Understanding?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/how-can-i-gain-understanding/
QUESTION:    It appears to me that there will always be things pertaining to GOD that I will not know or understand regardless of the amount of study and prayer I engage in. What is a believer to do in these instances when what has been revealed does not answer the questions that I have?
ANSWER:    There are many things about God that we will not understand until we’ve been perfected and stand before Him. Paul said now we know in part, but then we shall know fully, even as we are fully known (1 Cor. 13:12).
In the meantime, God gave us His Word in a form we can understand. Proverbs 1:7 tells us the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. The Hebrew word translated “fear” in this verse means “respect, reverence, or piety”. The more we show God the respect He deserves as our Creator and Redeemer, the more receptive our mind will be to His word.
His word tells us to “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5). Unless there’s a clear reason to do otherwise, we should trust that the Lord wants us to take His word just as He had it written.
We should pray for understanding.
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. (James 1:5-6)
Finally, we should believe that God’s word is written in such a way that anyone with average intelligence, a willingness to study, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit can comprehend it. We still won’t know all there is to know about God, but we will know the things He intended for us to know to get us through this life. The rest will come in the next life.

Understanding Psalm 36:1-4

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/understanding-psalm-361-4/\
QUESTION:    I’m currently reading the Psalms. In Psalm 36:1, David says “An oracle is within my heart…” would the oracle be the Holy Spirit?
ANSWER:    You’re apparently reading Psalm 36 from the NIV, which translates Psalm 36:1-4 as if David was receiving a divine communication or revelation concerning the sinfulness of a wicked person. The revelation was that there is no fear of God before a wicked man’s eyes. Such a man’s opinion of himself is too high to allow him to detect or hate his sin, or to realize that even his thoughts are evil. Several other translations agree with this rendering of Psalm 36:1-4.
But some translations put it a little differently, saying, “Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eye. For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated … and he does not abhor evil”.
Both renderings convey the same idea, that wicked people are blind to their own sinfulness and don’t realize that even the thoughts that precede their actions are evil. Since David wrote the psalms while under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, we can assume that’s where his insight came from no matter which translation we prefer.
This has been an accurate description of unbelievers since the beginning of time. It explains why try as we might, we just can’t get through to some people. Until they realize they are sinners in need of a Savior, all our efforts at sharing the Gospel will fall on deaf ears, because they can’t see how it applies to them. In cases like this, our prayer that the Holy Spirit will open their eyes to their true nature is the only thing that will work.

Understanding 1 John 5:16-19

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/understanding-1-john-516-19/
QUESTION:    Thanks for a wonderful site. Please explain or give your view on the verses in the above mentioned Scripture regarding sins not leading to death, sins leading to death and more specifically verse 18.
ANSWER:    1 John 5:16-19 reads as follows;
If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that. All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.
We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
Re: 1 John 5:16-17. The only sin that leads to death is rejecting the pardon the Lord has purchased for our sins with His own blood. The focus of John’s letter was Gnosticism, a view holding that it isn’t the Lord’s death that brings us forgiveness but the acquisition of secret knowledge. The Gnostics adamantly and persistently denied both the deity of Jesus and the need for His death on their behalf. They believed that Jesus was an ordinary man, teaching that the Holy Spirit came upon him at the beginning of His ministry and left Him before His death. There are several cults and even some liberal denominations that adhere to parts of the gnostic error even today. I believe John was saying that those who insist on this view are beyond prayer because they’ve rejected the most fundamental tenets of the Christian faith.
Where 1 John 5:18 is concerned there are only two possibilities, since every Christian continues to sin. First is that John was speaking specifically about the sin of gnosticism and second is an idea that Paul also mentioned, that once we become believers God looks upon us as if we do not sin and attributes our post conversion sins to our sin nature and not to us (Romans 7:18-20). That being the case, from God’s perspective no one who is born again continues to sin.
As for 1 John 5:19, Jesus called Satan the prince (ruler) of this world (John 14:30), Paul called him the god of this age (2 Cor. 4:4), and here John confirmed that the whole world is under his control. This happened when he persuaded our first parents to disobey God. He is responsible for bringing sin into the world and therefore is the author of all the sickness, disease, and injustice that is a part of our life.

WHO DECLARES CORONAVIRUS GLOBAL ‘PANDEMIC’ – 10 TIMES MORE LETHAL THAN SEASONAL FLU

https://endtimeheadlines.org/2020/03/who-declares-coronavirus-global-pandemic-10-times-more-lethal-than-seasonal-flu/ – Mar 11, 2020
WHO declares coronavirus global ‘pandemic’ – 10 times more lethal than seasonal flu
(ETH) – The World Health Organization has declared the novel coronavirus outbreak a global “pandemic.” During a media briefing Wednesday, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the WHO, said there are now more than 118,000 cases of COVID-19 in 114 countries, with 4,291 deaths.
He said in the days and weeks ahead, they expect to see the number of cases and deaths “climb even higher,” and expressed concern over the levels of “inaction” in some countries.  “We have called every day for countries to take urgent and aggressive action,” Tedros said. “We have rung the bell loud and clear.” Tedros stressed that there is still an opportunity for countries to reverse the course of the outbreak if they work to contain the spread. MORE:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told lawmakers during a House Oversight Committee hearing Wednesday that COVID-19 — the disease caused by the novel coronavirus — is probably about 10 times more lethal than the seasonal flu.
President Trump has often compared COVID-19 to the flu, which affects tens of thousands of Americans each year, in an effort to calm people down, but Fauci clearly wasn’t trying to downplay the seriousness of the virus’ spread. Fauci is a member of the White House’s coronavirus task force.
At the same time, he did clarify that 10 times figure actually brings the new coronavirus’ fatality rate lower than official estimates, which hover around 3 percent. The flu has a mortality rate of about 0.1 percent, so, when considering the likelihood that there are many asymptomatic or very mild cases that have gone undiagnosed, Fauci places the new coronavirus’ lethality rate at somewhere around 1 percent. READ MORE:

WHO BENEFITS?

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Charlie Martin
WHO BENEFITS FROM COVID-19 PANIC?
One of the notions running around right now is that the COVID virus — they’re now calling the virus something like SARS.CoV.2019 now, and COVID-19 is a name for the illness, so the terminology has gotten away from me again — but in any case, one of the notions running around now is that actually there are millions of undetected cases out there already.
Okay, so this is maybe barely possible. R0 for the virus would have to be WAY bigger than estimated. That Gardner paper, using an R0 of 2.2, estimated on 31 January that the number of unidentified cases was around 10 times the actual count. So, if that estimate is good, then as of today there will be something like one million cases. Other people have estimated as much as 20 times, which gives two million.
Aside: If you haven’t been following this, R0, often read “R-naught” is a measure of how infectious a disease is. You can think of it as the number of follow-on cases you can expect from an individual case, and R0 = 2.2 means you evect on average 2.2 more cases from every case identified. For comparisons, flu is usually 3-5, chickenpox is around 10, and measles is between 12 and 18.
But that’s a pretty small number for a massive global pandemic, with panicky millions of undetected cases, so let’s multiply that by 10 — and get 20 million.
R0 is going to need to be much more than the estimated 2.2 — closer to measles, higher than the flu or chickenpox. But this has some interesting consequences that we’ll get to in a minute.
In the meantime, let’s look at the panic-press recently on the actual disease.
It seems there are three groups pushing panic.
  • Some Qanon people, including the ones who are identifying a patent for a vaccine for a different virus, that causes pig diarrhea, as a “coronavirus patent” that proves it’s a Chinese bioweapon.
  • Some venture capitalists and skeevy finance websites pushing estimates of hundreds of thousands of deaths in months
  • And some politically-biased news sites — and yes, CNN and MSNBC, I amlooking at you — with commenters who are practically orgasmicthat THIS, FINALLY has the walls closing in on Trump.
Here’s the problem — as I’ve pointed out repeatedly, every one of these asymptomatic or mild cases increases the denominator on the case fatality rate. (For any journalists reading this, that’s the number on the bottom of a fraction.) As of 11:13 Eastern time today, there are 116,166 confirmed or presumed cases, and 4088 deaths, giving a case fatality rate of 4088/116166 or 3.5 percent. But make the denominator 10 times that, and it’s 0.35 percent. Make it 20x and it’s 0.17 percent.
If, in fact, there are 20 million or more, mostly occult undetected cases, then that’s 0.02 percent or about two per ten thousand.
Honestly, at this point we should be doing one thing anytime anyone makes a prediction of doom and catastrophe and catastrophic doom, and that’s asking them to show their work.
Just saying “it’s exponential” doesn’t count. First of all, some of these estimates require big exponents, and the actual data don’t support that. We could compute an estimate of what the exponent would be (hint: (1+n)^r) but we can use actual data more quickly by simply looking at a semi-log plot of the statistics, which the estimable JHU COVID-19 dashboard conveniently provides. Here’s the key insight: if the function is exponential, the slope of the log plot is the exponent. So the closer to a horizontal line the semi-log plot gives, the lower the exponent and the slower the growth —even if it’s an exponential function.
I forgot to include a “math warning” there, but the log-and-short of it is that the catastrophe predictions require that semi-log to have a substantial upward slope, and it’s just not there.
As well as looking for people to show their work, then, I think there’s another question to ask, one that is as important now as it was in 80 BC: cui bono? “Who benefits?”
Frankly, I don’t understand the motivations of conspiracy theorists. Maybe you all can explain what Qanon’s expected benefit might be in the comments. The Monolithic Legacy Media likes it because it’s another chance to dunk on Trump, and while it probably is too late to impeach again, at least there’s the chance it will be Trump’s Katrina — or Chernobyl.
The financial people? To understand that, you need to remember that traders aren’t like most people. They don’t profit from the gains their stocks make — they profit from their ability to buy low and sell high. In other words, they profit when the market is really volatile.
So, among those who benefitted from a panic over the weekend are the people who saw a good chance there would be a big drop on Monday. In other words, panic selling, because if you aren’t panicking, panic selling is a buy signal, as well as making short sales pay off.
Do I know that’s what happened, and those mathematically-improbable stories of hundreds of thousands of deaths in the next few months were intended to hurt Trump and panic markets?
No.
But I still ask cui bono?

TRUMP’S FORMER PANDEMIC ADVISER IS WARNING THAT “WE ARE 10 DAYS FROM OUR HOSPITALS GETTING CREAMED

Trump’s former pandemic adviser is warning that “we are 10 days from our hospitals getting creamed”
 (The Week) – Confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus are swiftly ballooning across the United States, and President Trump’s former Homeland Security Adviser Thomas Bossert says time is running out to control the spread. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), who is overseeing one of the country’s largest clusters, said “if you do the math” there could be 64,000 cases of COVID-19 in the Evergreen State by May, while New

THE U.S. RESPONSE TO THIS CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK HAS BEEN HORRIFYINGLY BAD

March 10, 2020 by Michael Snyderhttp://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/

What recourse do we have when our public health officials completely and utterly fail us?  I don’t know if we could have prevented COVID-19 from spreading widely in the United States even if everything had been done perfectly, but the truth is that we will never know.  When this outbreak first started, visitors from the affected areas were allowed to fly into the United States without being properly screened, and as you will see below this is still happening in many instances.  And once the virus started spreading on U.S. soil, we needed to immediately test any suspected cases so that we could isolate them as rapidly as possible.  But even though South Korea has managed to test more than 140,000 of their citizensless than 9,000 Americans have been tested so far… (READ MORE…)

U.S. CORONAVIRUS CASES DOUBLE IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS, AND “EVERYONE ELSE WILL BE ITALY IN 9-14 DAYS TIME

March 10, 2020March 10, 2020 by Michael Snyderhttp://endoftheamericandream.com/

What is our country going to look like if COVID-19 keeps spreading this rapidly?  The map that Johns Hopkins University is using to track the spread of this virus has become extremely popular, and I refer to it several times a day.  On Monday, I watched as the number of confirmed cases in the United States crossed the 500 mark, and then on Tuesday I was really shocked to see it jump up to 1,025.  In less than 48 hours, the number of confirmed cases more than doubled.  Needless to say, we are going to be in a whole lot of trouble if this keeps happening.  Of course the U.S. is far from alone.  This outbreak has gotten completely out of control all over the western world, and right now Europe is being hit harder than anyone else.

THE PUSH TOWARDS ‘CASHLESS SOCIETY’

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ –
WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION PROMOTES CASHLESS SOCIETY OVER VIRUS FEARS
Following reports that Beijing had “quarantined” dirty cash, the WHO warned on Monday that the virus could survive on banknotes, potentially spreading Covid-19 within communities, and across the world. To reduce the risk of being infected by money, the NGO advised citizens in countries struggling with outbreaks to favor digital payments when possible, the Daily Telegraph reported.
That the WHO is telling the public to avoid cash is hardly a surprise: research has found that coronaviruses have been found to live on surfaces for as long as 9 days.
During the statement, a WHO spokesman referenced a Bank of England study claiming that banknotes “can carry bacteria or viruses” and urged people to wash their hands. Other studies have shown that 90% of US $1 bills had bacteria present, and one Swiss study found that viruses had survive on the faces of Swiss francs for days.
The WHO’s warnings follow the People’s Bank of China last month started disinfecting currency deposited at Chinese banks using ultraviolet light, before quarantining the bills for a week before releasing them back into circulation.
Brits, and their fellow Europeans, should be increasingly careful as the virus spreads across Europe, the WHO warned, via the Telegraph:
“We know that money changes hands frequently and can pick up all sorts of bacteria and viruses,” a spokesman told the Telegraph.
“We would advise people to wash their hands after handling banknotes, and avoid touching their face. When possible, it would also be advisable to use contactless payments to reduce the risk of transmission.”
Of course, that one of the world’s major NGOs is seizing the opportunity to proclaim the virtues of ‘paperless’ money is hardly a surprise: the globalist push toward a ‘cashless society’ has been underway for years now, having had its biggest successes in Scandinavia. Sweden has gone virtually “cashless”, and in such a short time, they’ve already confronted the many drawbacks of relying exclusively on digital money.
As we noted previously, here is what happens next:
…the virus spreads throughout the US and Europe and governments respond the same way China’s government has; martial law and full blown concentration camp culture. This would lead to civil war in the US because we are armed and many people will shoot anyone trying to put us into quarantine camps. Europe is mostly screwed.
The establishment then suggests that paper money be removed from the system because it is a viral spreader. China is already pushing this solution now.
Magically, we find ourselves in a cashless society in a matter of a year or two; which is what the globalists have been demanding for years. Everything goes digital, and thus even local economies become completely centralized as private trade dies.
A viral outbreak is a significant danger to us all, but an even greater threat is the supposed cure. Trading our economic and social freedom in the name of stopping the coronavirus?  No matter how deadly the bug, it’s just not worth it.

FEDERAL RESERVE CREATED BOOMS AND BUSTS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Dr. Ron Paul
CENTRAL BANKING IS SOCIALISM
Last week, the Federal Reserve responded to Wall Street’s coronavirus panic with an “emergency” interest rate cut. This emergency cut failed to revive the stock market, leading to predictions that the Fed will again cut rates later this month.
More rate cuts would drive interest rates to near, or even below, zero. Lowering interest rates punishes people for saving, thus encouraging consumers and businesses to spend every penny they make. This may give the economy a short-term boost. But, it inhibits long-term economic growth by depleting the savings necessary for investments in businesses and jobs. The result of this policy will be more pressure on the Fed to indefinitely maintain low interest rates and on the Congress and president to create another explosion of government “stimulus” spending.
The essence of socialist economics is government allocation of resources either by seizing direct control of the “means of production” or by setting prices business can charge. Federal Reserve manipulation of interest rates is an attempt to set the price of money. Federal Reserve attempts to set interest rates distort the signals sent by the rates to investors and business. This results in a Fed-created boom, which is inevitably followed by a Fed-created bust.
Economic elites benefit when the Federal Reserve pumps new money into the economy because they have access to the money created before there are widespread price increases. Artificially low interest rates also facilitate the growth of the welfare-warfare state.
The Federal Reserve’s inflationary policies harm the average American by eroding the dollar’s purchasing power. This forces consumers to rely on credit cards and other forms of debt to maintain their standard of living. Many Americans are unable to afford their own homes because they are saddled with student loan debt that can even exceed their income.
Since the bailouts of 2008, there has been a growing understanding that the current system is rigged in favor of the elites and against the average American. Unfortunately, popular confusion of our system of Keynesian neoliberalism with a free-market economy, combined with a widespread entitlement mentality, has led many Americans to support increasing government control of our economy.
The key to beating back the rising support for socialism on both the left and right is helping more people understand that big government and central banking are the cause of their problems and that free markets in all areas — and especially in money — is the solution. It is important that the liberty movement put pressure on Congress to cut spending and rein in or, better yet, end the Fed.

ISRAEL’S ELECTIONS AND LIBERMAN ‘TORTURER OF THE ISRAELI ELECTORATE

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Elizabeth Blade
WHAT’S WRONG WITH ISRAEL’S ELECTION PROCESS? MAINLY SMALLER PARTIES’ EXTORTION TECHNIQUES
President Reuven Rivlin is set to open a round of talks in a bid to determine who the next prime minister of Israel will be. But the road to naming a new PM promises to be long, primarily because the future PM will need to form a coalition relying on Israel’s smaller parties, that will use their seats to extort political gains.
The official results of Israel’s third round of general polls will be announced on Wednesday, the country’s Central Elections Committee said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party is still projected to lead, gaining 36 seats in the 120 seat Israeli Parliament, the Knesset. 
Netanyahu’s main rival, former chief of staff Benny Gantz and his Blue and White list, are set to be Israel’s second largest party with 32 seats.
The rest of the seats are divided between smaller parties such as the Joint Arab List that got the unprecedented 15 seats, Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beitenu that will have seven representatives in the Israeli parliament, Labour Party’s merger that will also have some seven seats and the religious bloc, comprising of three parties, that’s projected to get 23 seats in total.
Yet, the release of results is only the beginning. Once they are out, Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin will start a round of consultations in the end of which he will task one of the contenders with the duty of forming a government, and that, as two previous rounds of general polls have shown, will not be an easy task.
The main challenge for any contender would be to find the 61 seats needed to build a coalition and that means that bigger lists will need to dance to the tunes of smaller parties that very often use their position to squeeze out bigger budgets, better ministerial posts and other concessions. 
Liberman, once an ally of Netanyahu and now his bitter enemy, was just one of those who have already voiced their demands. 
However, Liberman is not alone. The alliance of four Arab parties has its own list of demands, and unlike with Liberman, whose conditions were accepted by the Blue and White party because they resonated with its secular voters, the dictates of the Arab parties will be tough to swallow. Nor will they be an easy sale to Israel’s general public.
The List’s other demands included the cancellation of Israel’s repatriation law that allows Jews from all over the world to immigrate to the country, as well as a backtracking from US President Donald Trump’s “deal of the century” plan that presupposed major land swaps and population transfers.
Now, after three rounds of elections that wasted billions in taxpayers’ money but brought no resolution to the political stalemate, Israel wants change. According to the Israel Democracy Institute, 56 percent of Israelis would want to see the implementation of a two-party system, similar to the one used in the US.

Hours after the polls closed in elections last April, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared victory, confident that his Likud party and “natural allies” on the right and among the ultra-Orthodox had won a majority. When the final count was confirmed, his reelection indeed seemed assured: Those natural allies had won 65 seats in the Knesset.
Except that, out of the blue, one of those allies, Avigdor Liberman and his Yisrael Beytenu party, decided not to join a Netanyahu-led coalition, determining that the prime minister had become a serial surrenderer to ultra-Orthodox coercion and that he, Liberman, was going to stop the rot. Only if draft legislation ostensibly intended to raise the proportion of young ultra-Orthodox males serving in the army were passed in its current form, he said, would he again partner with his longtime ally.
Netanyahu tried to broker a solution, failed, and dissolved the Knesset rather than let his main rival, Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz, get a shot at mustering a majority of his own. And thus Liberman — on the basis of a draft law that would not, in fact, make any significant difference to ultra-Orthodox conscription levels — condemned the Israeli public to a repeat election.
In September’s vote, Netanyahu and his “natural allies,” this time without Liberman, managed only 55 seats between them. Again, Liberman could have given Netanyahu a majority, since his Yisrael Beytenu gained ground, winning eight seats. By the same token, Liberman could have given the Gantz-led opposing forces a majority. But Liberman was evidently enjoying his kingmaker role, and chose to do neither.
He insisted that he would join only a unity government that included both Likud and Blue and White, and that excluded both messianists (i.e., certain right-wingers and the ultra-Orthodox parties) and the Joint List of mainly Arab parties, whom he repeatedly castigated as terror-supporting fifth columnists. Since Gantz’s diverse Blue and White party was united only in the goal of ousting Netanyahu, and since Netanyahu wasn’t going anywhere, no such government could be formed.
And thus, after weeks in which first Netanyahu and then Gantz tried in vain to remake the laws of (political) mathematics, Liberman’s insistence on playing kingmaker but refusing to crown a monarch forced Israel down the dismal route to yet a third election in less than a year.
But the most interesting and significant shift, coalition-wise, came from Liberman. After torturing the electorate for a year, he came off the fence Sunday and set terms for joining a government that Gantz immediately accepted and that he knows Netanyahu never will. On Monday, he met with Gantz and they agreed to work to build a coalition.
Liberman, for his part, opined that a fourth election would be “the worst of all possible scenarios” and vowed to prevent such a catastrophe… just as he vowed a few months ago, incidentally, to prevent third elections.
But two things are clear. First, that Avigdor Liberman owes the Israeli electorate some powerful clarifications and/or apologies. He could have spared us political deadlock since April by crowning Netanyahu. He could have spared us political deadlock in September by crowning either Netanyahu or Gantz. And if he does opt to crown Gantz now, he’ll need to come up with a better explanation than his reported comments to colleagues in recent days to the effect that there is “no chance” he will partner with Netanyahu because he blames the prime minister for a series of legal complaints filed anonymously against him and his family. If that was his reason, after all, then it would have applied equally in September.
And second, that the Israeli electorate deserves better from its leaders. Like the rest of the world, Israel is now grappling with a health crisis whose implications are still far from fully understood. We do not lack responsible professionals in key positions of authority. But we do lack a fully functioning government and a fully functioning parliament.

PUTIN TO STAY ON AS PRESIDENT?

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Tyler Durden
VLADIMIR PUTIN TO STAY ON AS PRESIDENT? MPS DISCUSS REMOVAL OF TERM LIMITS
In a somewhat surprising turn of events, Russian president Vladimir Putin said this morning that a suggestion by ruling-party lawmakers that would see his presidential tenure reset, thus allowing him to run again in 2024, should be supported by citizens and adopted by the Constitutional Court.
“Putin needs to be there — in case something goes wrong” amid global political and economic turbulence, Valentina Tereshkova, a respected lawmaker who was also the first woman in space, told the State Duma in a speech shown on state TV during debates on a constitutional overhaul put forward by the Kremlin.
“If the situation requires it and, most importantly, if the people want it, to put in law the possibility for the current president to be re-elected to this position is already in accordance with the updated constitution.”
Interfax news service reported that in his address to the State Duma, the parliament’s lower house, Putin said:
“I believe and am deeply convinced that a strong presidential power is absolutely necessary for our country.” 
Somewhat ironically, Putin also stressed that the public should have guarantees that elections – including presidential elections – are open and competitive.
Putin has said the plan is aimed at modernizing the basic law and that he plans to observe current term limits, which prevent him from running again. But the overhauls, abruptly announced in January, are widely seen as an effort to create options for Putin to retain control even after he steps down as president.
The removal of term limits and early-vote proposal would require constitutional amendments.
The Kremlin has set a national ballot to approve the constitutional changes for April 22.
‘WESTERN IDEOLOGISTS WILL GO CRAZY’: PUTIN LEAVES DOOR OPEN TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT AGAIN
Putin’s speech to the Russian parliament Tuesday seemed to be one of his most sincere: he argued that stable leadership is good for a country in turbulent times but does it mean we’ll really see him in power beyond 2024.
Putin said Tuesday that he will seek a new term when his current one is up “only if it’s approved by the Constitutional Court and if citizens support such a proposal” when they vote for constitutional amendments on April 22.
He addressed the issue during a speech in parliament after MP and the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, called for his tenure to be reset so that he would be eligible for two more runs before being subject to the new restrictions, envisaged by the amendments.
The changes to Russia’s principal law, among other things, include redistributing some powers away from the president to the parliament, banning state officials from having foreign citizenship and setting the minimum wage above the basic cost of living.
Putin is currently in his fourth term as Russian president, but he did not skirt the rules of the constitution to do it. He was the head of state first between 2000 and 2008 before switching to the position of prime minister for the next four years. He then successfully ran for president again in 2012 and has remained in the job since.
Under the current Russian Constitution, the president is restricted to two consecutive terms — and whether Putin will seek another term has intrigued Russian and foreign political analysts for years. There were many of those in Russia and abroad, who slammed his rule as “a regime” and wanted him out, but there were also plenty of those, who considered him “the best among the current world leaders” and called for him to stay in power.
“It’s a very delicate trolling of our Western partners,” Aleksey Mukhin, the head of the Centre for Political Information said, commenting on Putin’s words about the possibility of running again in 2024. The very announcement of the planned constitutional amendments earlier this year caused a frenzy in the mainstream media — and was swiftly interpreted as Putin attempting to retain his grip on power.
Mukhin reminded that the president has said many times that he would not run in 2024, but “he left such an opportunity open for himself so that our Western partners remain on their toes.”
It’s a very slick move, which will cause a strong negative reaction that will, however, be absolutely in vain.
Many in the West would, of course, be angry if Putin remains in office after 2024, despite the fact that this move will likely stabilize the situation in the international arena, political analyst, Dmitry Babich, suggested.
“Putin is consistent. It’s clear what he’s going to do. If you look closely – all of his harsh moves in recent years were only a response to even harsher moves by the West… not crisis situations created by Moscow,” Babich said.

TEN QUAKES IN 24 HOURS OFF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA COAST

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By Mark Price
TEN QUAKES REPORTED IN 24 HOURS OFF PETROLIA, CALIFORNIA
A 5.8-magnitude earthquake reported Sunday 53 miles west of Petrolia, California, was one of 10 recorded in the area in 24 hours, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The other nine ranged from a 2.5-magnitude quake to a 4.9, and people from hundreds of miles away reported feeling them, the survey said.
Mapping showed the first nine occurred in an elliptical shape that was growing to the west.
USGS data shows the most recent was a 3.3 magnitude that occurred around 7 a.m. Monday off Ferndale, about 46 miles west of Petrolia.
The 5.8 quake happened around 8 p.m. Sunday and more than 2,600 people reported feeling light to strong shaking, according to a survey page set up to take reports.
Petrolia is a coastal town about 270 miles northwest of Sacramento.
Experts say the epicenter of the 5.8-magnitude quake was 1.3 miles beneath a part of the Pacificwhere multiple tectonic plates scrape against each other, according to a report by the Berkeley Seismology Lab.
The other nine quakes ranged in depth from a half mile to nearly six miles from the surface, the USGS said.
Petrolia is well known to the state’s geologists. It was 2.5 miles from the epicenter of one of the strongest quakes ever to hit California: a 7.2 on April 25, 1992, that injured 350 people, according to the Berkeley Seismology Lab.
“The region around Petrolia, Cape Mendocino, and Punta Gorda, which are all just 10 miles from each other, is not only the northern terminus of the San Andreas Fault,” the lab reports. “There the interaction between the Pacific and the North American plates fundamentally changes its character.”
USGS sent a tweet about it quicker than usual. This 5.9 was a slow roller. #earthquake#NorCal #HumboldtCounty #Eureka pic.twitter.com/zgRUVIYpgt

MAIN NEWS ARTICLE:

The Revived Roman Empire: Iron And Clay Mixture – Awaiting Arrival Of The ’10 Kings’

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ –
41 Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. 42 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. 43 And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.
(Daniel 2)
24 The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. 25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. [b]
(Daniel 7)
12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
(Revelation 17)
IS THIS HOW EUROPE ENDS?
Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,
FORTRESS EUROPE IS AN ILLUSION.”
So declares the Financial Times in the closing line of its Saturday editorial: “Europe Cannot Ignore Syrian Migrant Crisis.”
The FT undertakes to instruct the Old Continent on what its duty is and what its future holds:
“The EU will face flows of migrants and asylum seekers across the Mediterranean for decades to come.”
Can Europe not repel this unwanted home invasion from the Global South?
It is “delusional” to think so, says the FT. Europe must be realistic and set about “providing legal routes for migrants and asylum seekers.”
What occasioned the editorial was Greece’s rough resistance to Turkish President Erdogan’s funneling of thousands of Syrian refugees, who had fled into Turkey, right up to the border with Greece.
Erdogan is threatening to inundate southeastern Europe with Syrian refugees to extract more money from the EU in return for keeping the 3.5 million Syrians already in Turkey away from EU frontiers.
Another Erdogan objective is to coerce Europe into backing his military intervention in Syria to prevent President Bashar Assad from capturing all of Idlib province and emerging victorious in his civil war.
In the human rights hellhole that is Syria today, we may see the dimensions of the disaster wrought when Wilsonian crusaders set out to depose the dictator Assad and make Syria safe for democracy.
When the Arab Spring erupted and protesters arose to oust Assad, the U.S., Turkey and the Gulf Arabs aided and equipped Syrian rebels willing to take up arms. The “good rebels,” however, were routed and elements of al-Qaida soon assumed dominance of the resistance.
Facing defeat, Syria’s president put out a call to his allies — Russia, Iran, Hezbollah — to save his regime. They responded, and Assad, over four years, recaptured all of Syria west of the Euphrates, save Idlib.
There, the latest fighting has pushed 900,000 more refugees to Turkey’s southern border.
The 21st-century interventions and wars of the West in the Islamic world have not gone well.
George W. Bush was goaded into invading Iraq. Barack Obama was persuaded to overthrow Colonel Moammar Gadhafi in Libya and the Assad regime in Damascus. Obama ordered U.S. forces to assist Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in his war to crush Houthi rebels who had ousted Riyadh’s resident puppet in Yemen.
AND WHAT HAS THE WEST REAPED FROM OUR MIDEAST WARS?
In Syria and Yemen, we have helped to create two of the world’s greatest human rights disasters.
In Libya, we have a new civil war.
In Iraq, we now battle Iran for influence inside a nation we “liberated” in 2003
In Afghanistan, we have concluded a deal with our enemy of two decades, the Taliban, that will enable us to pull our 12,000 troops out of the country in 14 months and let our Afghan allies work it out, or fight it out, with the Taliban. America is washing its hands of its longest war.
In five wars over 20 years, we lost 7,000 soldiers with some 40,000 wounded. We plunged the wealth of an empire into these wars.
And what did these wars produce for the peoples we went to aid and uplift, besides hundreds of thousands of dead Afghans and Arabs and millions of people uprooted from their homes and driven into exile?
Now, Europe is being admonished by the FT that, having done its duty by plunging into the Mideast, the continent has a new moral duty to take in the refugees the wars created, for decades to come.
But if the EU opens its doors to an endless stream of Africans and Arabs, where is the evidence that European nations will accept and assimilate them?
Will these migrants and asylum seekers become good Europeans? Or will they create in the great cities of Europe enclaves that replicate the conditions in the African and Middle East countries whence they came?
The history of the last half millennium tells the story of the rise and fall of a civilization.
In the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, Spain, Britain, France and Portugal, and then Belgium, Italy, Germany and America, all believing in the superiority of their civilization, went out into the world to create empires to uplift and rule what Rudyard Kipling derisively called “the lesser breeds without the law.”
After two world wars, the rulers of these empires embraced a liberalism that now proclaimed the equality of all peoples, races, creeds, cultures and civilizations. This egalitarian ideology mandated the dismantling of empires and colonies as the reactionary relics of a benighted time.
Now the peoples of the new nations, dissatisfied with what their liberated lands and rulers have produced, have decided to come to Europe to enjoy in the West what they cannot replicate at home. And liberalism, the ideology of Western suicide, dictates to Europe that it take them in — for decades to come.
The colonizers of yesterday are becoming the colonized of tomorrow. Is this how the West ends?
EUROPE UNDER SIEGE
Bruce Bawer
Barbarians are storming the gates, but Europeans still won’t pull in the welcome mat.
In recent days, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president of the Ottoman Empire’s successor state, Turkey, has unleashed thousands of Muslims, mostly young males of military age, upon the European Union, today’s not-so-holy but increasingly imperial reincarnation of the Holy Roman Empire. More specifically, Erdogan, in violation of an agreement with the EU that netted him billions, has allowed – and encouraged – these people, who have been routinely described in the Western media as “refugees” and “migrants,” to storm the border separating his country from the EU’s southeasternmost satrapy, Greece.
Indeed, he’s lent them active support, providing many of them with free transport to the border, which they’ve attacked with rocks, “makeshift battering rams,” and tear-gas canisters (supplied by Ergodan) while setting fires and shouting “Allahu akbar!” Photostaken at the border underscore just how perverse it is to call these thugs “refugees” or “migrants.”  
Seems like old times. What’s different this time around is that whereas seventeenth-century Europeans understood that they were confronting, in the Islamic invaders of their day, an existential threat to their way of life, many of their descendants don’t seem to have a clue about what they’re dealing with.
On Tuesday of last week, and again on Saturday, thousands of Germans, rallying in Berlin and other cities, demanded that the “migrants” on the Greek borders be allowed to pour into the continent and to find their way to Germany, if they wish, so that they can help form “a solidarity society” in which there will be “no more suffering.”
The youth division (CUF) of the Swedish Center Party sent out a similar message, calling on Europeans to “Open your hearts – and your borders” and let the hustling hordes “come here and become part of our society.”
In the Swedish cities of Gothenburg (last Wednesday) and Stockholm (Friday), crowds gathered in support of open borders; the latter demo was organized by the group Feminist Initiative, which, in a show of goodwill, has apparently decided to overlook the tendency of Muslim male arrivals to treat their own wives like chattel and treat Swedish women like sex dolls.
It was only five years ago that German chancellor Angela Merkel made the fateful decision to allow into her country tens of thousands of Muslims who were said to be Syrian refugees.
Then as now, the Western world’s mainstream media distributed images of suffering women and children (not a few of which were staged). Ultimately, it turned out that the overwhelming majority of the “migrants” were not Syrian families fleeing war but, yes, young males of military age from all over the Muslim world. Nonetheless Merkel’s action was applauded by many of her country’s citizens, who, desperate as ever to prove that they aren’t Nazis, gathered at railroad stations to welcome these aspiring malefactors and welfare recipients with hugs and kisses.
One consequence of Merkel’s irresponsible move was that upwards of a thousand German women were sexually assaulted by their colorful and exotic new countrymen while celebrating New Year’s Eve 2015-16 in the central squares of Cologne and several other major cities. That was a particularly tough night, but hardly a brand-new phenomenon in a continent where the last few decades of Muslim immigration have led to an ever-rising incidence of violent crimes and to drastic funding cuts in everything from education to health care in order to feed, clothe, and house the restive, and not especially appreciative, denizens of ever-expanding sharia enclaves.
A few questions. If the governments of Europe are obliged “to take responsibility for” foreigners – most of whom, frankly, are healthy-looking young males  – what responsibility do those governments have to their own citizens – among them the elderly, the infirm, the women who are already scared to walk the streets at night, and the girls who are the same age as Britain’s grooming-gang victims? If the Muslims at the Greek border have a “right to seek asylum,” exactly what rights do the taxpayers of Europe have? Do they deserve the “compassion” to which HRW refers? Why should the “dignity and humanity” of Muslims from other continents trump the “dignity and humanity” of native Europeans? At what point in this decades-long Islamic tsunami will it be acceptable for the people of Europe to say “enough” without being called bigots?

SEEK THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHILE HE STILL CAN BE FOUND – HE IS COMING QUICKLY – IT IS A “FREE” GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE.

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)

WHAT IS THE PRAYER OF SALVATION?”

 

Many people ask, “Is there a prayer I can pray that will guarantee my salvation?” It is important to remember that salvation is not received by reciting a prayer or uttering certain words. The Bible nowhere records a person’s receiving salvation by a prayer. Saying a prayer is not the biblical way of salvation.
The biblical method of salvation is faith in Jesus Christ. John 3:16
tells us, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Salvation is gained by faith (Ephesians 2:8), by receiving Jesus as Savior (John 1:12), and by fully trusting Jesus alone (John 14:6; Acts 4:12), not by reciting a prayer.
The biblical message of salvation is simple, clear, and amazing at the same time. We have all committed sin against God (Romans 3:23
). Other than Jesus Christ, there is no one who has lived an entire life without sinning (Ecclesiastes 7:20). Because of our sin, we have earned judgment from God—death (Romans 6:23). Because of our sin and its deserved punishment, there is nothing we can do on our own to make ourselves right with God. As a result of His love for us, God became a human being in the Person of Jesus Christ. Jesus lived a perfect life and always taught the truth. However, humanity rejected Jesus and put Him to death by crucifying Him. Though that horrible act killed the only truly innocent man, our salvation was obtained. Jesus died in our place. He took the burden and judgment of our sin upon Himself (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus was then resurrected (1 Corinthians 15), proving that His payment for sin was sufficient and that He had overcome sin and death. As a result of Jesus’ sacrifice, God offers us salvation as a gift. God calls us all to repent of our sins (Acts 17:30) and have faith in Christ as the full payment of our sins (1 John 2:2). Salvation is gained by receiving the gift God offers us, not by praying a certain prayer.
Now, that does not mean prayer cannot be involved in receiving salvation. If you understand the gospel, believe it to be true, and have accepted Jesus as your salvation, it is good and appropriate to express that faith to God in prayer. Communicating with God through prayer can be a way to progress from accepting facts about Jesus to fully trusting in Him as Savior. Prayer can be connected to the act of placing your faith in Jesus alone for salvation.
Again, though, it is crucially important that you do not base your salvation on having said a prayer. Reciting a prayer cannot save you! If you want to receive the salvation that is available through Jesus, place your faith in Him. Fully trust His death as the sufficient sacrifice for your sins. Completely rely on Him alone as your Savior. That is the biblical method of salvation. If you have received Jesus as your Savior, by all means, say a prayer to God. Tell God how thankful you are for Jesus. Offer praise to God for His love and sacrifice. Thank Jesus for dying for your sins and providing salvation for you. That is the biblical connection between salvation and prayer.
