WE PREACH THE BLESSED HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IN JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR
Rev. 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
Prov. 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Is. 52:10 The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God
Jer. 25:31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD
DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
THE TRIBULATION SAINTS – AND THEIR SALVATION:
QUESTION: What is the criteria for Tribulation Salvation? I mean, now, the salvation is by grace through faith. The Holy Spirit will be taken away. Is the tribulation salvation by faith plus works or by works alone, or what?
ANSWER: Salvation is always by faith. As I read Rev. 14:12 and 16:15, Tribulation believers will not be granted eternal security like the Church is. They’ll have to work to maintain their faith under extremely adverse conditions by keeping the commandments. And of those who survive, some will not be able to maintain their faith and will be denied entrance into the Kingdom. The Parable of the 10 virgins illustrates this (Matt. 25:1-13).
Tribulation Saints Vs. The Church
QUESTION: I just listened to your MP3 series on Revelation chapter 7-9. In part 4 you talk about the Tribulation Martyrs serving Jesus in the temple etc, but they would not receive the reward that the Church does, which is to be co-heirs with Christ. I had never seen this before while reading Revelation until you mentioned it. Can you explain why you think this is so? So basically what your saying is that as soon as the Rapture happens anyone who believes after that point is not really part of the Church but is classified in another group. (Kind of like Israel is a separate group.) Can you go further into this?
ANSWER: The earliest date for the birth of the Church is on Pentecost, 50 days after the Resurrection, and it will disappear in the rapture. Therefore, just as Old Testament believers aren’t part of the Church, neither are Tribulation believers. And a careful reading of Rev. 7:9-17 shows that the destiny of these believers is much different from the Church.
They’re specifically described as serving God in His Temple, and yet they are never called priests. This is a role never ascribed to the Church. In fact there is no Temple in the New Jerusalem, home of the church (Rev. 21:22). Also there’s no mention of the saints in Rev. 7 ever ruling and reigning with Christ as is the Church’s destiny.
Ephesians 2:14-17 clearly portrays the Church as an entirely new and unique race of human, different from any other, with a future designed to show just how far God can go in lavishing His grace upon us (Ephes. 2:6-7). In my opinion, we don’t hear anywhere near enough on this subject from the pulpit.
During the Church Age, God asks people to believe solely by faith (John 6:28-29), and promises blessings beyond those of any other group to those who do. But once Daniel’s 70th week begins, God’s supernatural power will once again be on display for all to see. During that time belief in Him will be as much by evidence as by faith, like it was in the Old Testament. Believing in what you see is not as commendable to God as is believing what you don’t see, hence the different destiny of Tribulation believers from that of the Church.
Who Are The Tribulation Saints?
QUESTION: Please clarify who the Tribulation Saints are. If I understand you, at the Rapture, God will turn His attention from the gentiles back to the Hebrews. Does this mean the Tribulation Saints will all be Jewish, that the Gentiles have missed the boat so to speak?
Thank you so much for sharing your considerable knowledge with your readers. May God continue to bless you.
ANSWER: After the cross, God divided humanity into 3 parts where before there had only been two. Instead of just Jews and Gentiles, now there was also the Church. (1 Cor. 10:32) After the Church is gone in the Rapture there will only be Jews and Gentiles again. Many from both groups will come to know Jesus during the Great Tribulation and will be martyred for their faith, and these are often referred to as Tribulation Saints. (Actually it would be more correct to call them Tribulation Martyrs.)
But some from the Jews who are saved will survive to populate Israel in the Millennium, and some from the believing Gentiles will survive to populate the Nations. Since they will have been saved during the Great Tribulation they are really Tribulation Saints too, although most only use the phrase in connection with the martyrs.
Unbelievers who survive the Great Tribulation will be taken away after the 2nd Coming and will be seen no more.
The Resurrection of Tribulation Saints
QUESTION: My question is in regards to the tribulation saints. I believe that when Jesus come in the rapture, we and all others who died in Christ will get perfected bodies. The ones that died will be resurrected right? If so, does this mean that there will be a second resurrection for the tribulation believers who die? Thank you for your help.
ANSWER: The answer to your question is yes and no. According to Rev. 20:4 Tribulation martyrs will be resurrected at the time of the 2nd Coming. But notice that Rev. 20:5 says this is still considered to be the first resurrection. It began with the Lord, will continue with the resurrection of believers at the time of the Rapture (1 Thes. 4:16-17), and will conclude (for now) with the Tribulation Martyrs and Old Testament believers (Daniel 12:1-2). (The Bible does not tell us anything about believers who die during the Millennium.)
The unsaved dead will come to life to be judged at the end of the Millennium, 1000 years later (Rev. 20:11-15). This will be the 2nd resurrection.
By the way, it’s from Daniel 12:2 that we discover there will be 2 types of resurrection, one to everlasting life and the other to shame and everlasting contempt. So while there are several resurrection events, there are only two types of resurrection, the first resurrection and the second resurrection.

After earlier in the day President Trump authorized the Pentagon to “do what we need to do” in terms of a military response against Iran-backed militias believed responsible for Wednesday’s rocket attacks on Camp Taji, which killed one British and two American soldiers, and wounded at least a dozen more, there are widespread reports the US has initiated massive airstrikes over southern Iraq late Thursday night.
A BBC correspondent in the region is describing “multiple strikes across Iran-backed groups’ facilities” which include “logistics and drone warehouses.”
Early reports suggest the attack includes “large amounts of munitions” on multiple Iraqi Shia militia targets. Moments after initial reports on social media US defense offcials confirmed that “airstrikes are underway against Iran-backed militia group that hit Iraq base,” according to the Associated Press.
Bombing #Iran-backed paramilitary group positions around #Karbala and #Salahaddin is significant. This is the largest amount of force I’ve seen against Hashd (#PMF) so far. These areas are considered “No fly zones” for #Coalition. Jets may have come from #UAE or #Kuwait
— Nafiseh Kohnavard (@nafisehkBBC) March 12, 2020
As if the Mideast region and the world for that matter needs another crisis to worry about, this could be the start of the kind of tit-for-tat between the US and Iran which paved the way for the US killing by drone of IRGC Quds Force chief Qassem Soleimani on January 3rd. Since then, the two have been on a war footing.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper hours ago warned the US would hold the groups behind Wednesday’s attack on Taji base accountable. “You don’t get to shoot at our bases and kill and wound Americans and get away with it,” he said earlier.
According to Fox News security correspondent Jennifer Griffin:
The US response will be “proportional” targeting multiple locations used by Iranian backed Shia militias across Iraq and along Syrian border.
Will be limited to airstrikes: source. Will degrade Shia militia/ Kata’eb Hezbollah ability to strike: US military source.

The US has said Kata’eb Hezbollah is responsible, given it’s “the only group known to have previously conducted an indirect fire attack of this scale against U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq.” The major attack had utilized at least 15 Soviet-era rocket artillery and further left a dozen wounded.
A top Pentagon general also said earlier the Iran-backed militias were to blame and that the US can identify the culprit with a “high degree of certainty”.

US confirms bombing Iraq’s Shia Kata’eb Hezbollah militia after rocket strike at base near Baghdad killed 2 troops
US aircraft bombed five Shia militia targets in Iraq in retaliation for the earlier deaths of two US service members and a British nurse in a rocket attack on Camp Taji near Baghdad.
“Earlier this evening, the United States conducted defensive precision strikes against Kata’ib Hizbollah (KH) facilities across Iraq. These strikes targeted five weapon storage facilities to significantly degrade their ability to conduct future attacks against Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) coalition forces,” the US Department of Defense said in a statement, confirming multiple reports on social media.
Branding the raids “defensive and proportional,” it said that the sorties were launched in “direct response to the threat posed by Iranian-backed Shia militia groups.”
Earlier in the day, the Pentagon blamed the “Iran-backed” Iraqi Shia militias for Wednesday’s rocket strike, which killed three and wounded 14 more people.

Kata’eb Hezbollah is one of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) militias that the US has blamed for attacks on its forces in Iraq.
Iraqi Security Media Cell, affiliated with the military, has confirmed that the strikes targeted PMF headquarters and warehouses, amid reports that the militia suffered heavy casualties during the raids.
There were even unconfirmed reports that among them was General Siamand Mashhadani of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
Photos have emerged purporting to show the impact of the airstrikes on the Karbala International Airport, still under construction in Shia-majority Karbala governorate in central Iraq.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper said earlier in the day that he was given the authority “to do what we need to do” from US President Donald Trump, without elaborating further.
A total of 18 rockets struck Camp Taji on Wednesday, killing two US troops – whose names have not been made public yet – and one British army nurse, identified since as Lance Corporal Brodie Gillon. The base, located 27km north of Baghdad, is used by the US coalition to train Iraqi security forces.
The PMF are mainly composed of Iraqi Shia militiamen who have fought alongside the mainly Sunni Iraqi army, and have been formally recognized as a part of it since March 2018. The US considers them Iranian proxies, because they have received military and financial support from Tehran during the struggle against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists.
The PMF were also blamed for the attack on the K-1 base outside of Kirkuk in December, which killed one US military contractor. This triggered an escalation spiral, with US launching reprisal strikes, the PMF attempting to storm the US Embassy in Baghdad, Trump ordering the drone assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, and Iran responding to that by launching ballistic missiles against two US bases inside Iraq.
Coronavirus’s economic danger is exponentially greater than its health risks to the public. If the virus does directly affect your life, it is most likely to be through stopping you going to work, forcing your employer to make you redundant, or bankrupting your business.
The trillions of dollars wiped from financial markets this week will be just the beginning, if our governments do not step in.
Worldwide, Covid-19 has killed 4,389 with 31 US deaths as of today. But it will economically cripple millions, especially since the epidemic has formed a perfect storm with stock market crashes, an oil war between Russia and Saudi Arabia, and the spilling over of an actual war in Syria into another potential migrant crisis.
We may look back on coronavirus as the moment when the threads that hold the global economy together came unstuck; and startups and growing businesses like mine could end up paying the price.
Just as important as fighting the virus — if not more important — is vaccinating our economies against the incoming pandemic of panic. Human suffering can come in the form of illness and death. But it can also be experienced as not being able to pay the bills or losing your home.
Small businesses in particular are struggling as supply chains dry up, leaving them without products or essential materials. Factory closures in China have led to a record low in the country’s Purchasing Manager’s Index which measures manufacturing output. China is the world’s largest exporter and is responsible for a third of global manufacturing, so China’s problem is everyone’s problem — even in the midst of a trade war between the White House and Beijing.
All this makes it even more worrying that governments continue to see this as a health crisis, not an economic one. It is time the economists took over from the doctors, before the real pandemic spreads.
It is difficult to imagine Italy not entering a recession (the world’s ninth largest economy is now on lockdown). It is also difficult to imagine that failing to affect Europe and its largest trading partner, the United States. And it is impossible to see how any of this will not add up to a global downturn, unless governments step in faster and harder than they did 12 years ago during the last financial crisis.
WE ARE HEADING FOR A DEPRESSION – CHARLES NENNER
By Greg Hunter On March 13, 2020 In Market Analysis No Comments
By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
Renowned geopolitical and financial cycle expert Charles Nenner told his clients back in January 2020, “It was time to sell . . . . I am afraid they can lose 40% to the downside.” Well, we are more than halfway there, and Nenner warns it’s going to go lower—much lower. Nenner says, “You know it was all over the media, and they were always laughing at me that my long term target is 5,000 for the DOW Jones. They ask me how are we going to get there, and I say I don’t know. Now, this thing with the virus, there is no business anymore because the United States has stopped flights with Europe. So, maybe we can see how we get there.”
I think people have finally stopped laughing about Nenner’s 5,000 DOW call.
Another way the markets can crash is a full blown banking crisis that is brewing in Europe. At the center is Deutsche Bank (DB), which the IMF called the “most systemically dangerous bank” in the world back in 2016. Nenner predicted on USAWatchdog.com that if DB stock crashed through a $6.44 price target, it could go to $0. DB closed Thursday at $5.53, down 15% in one day. Nenner says, “I have real estate I want to sell because in Amsterdam, it’s going through the roof. I decided not to do it because I don’t trust the banking system. For years, we have talked about Deutsche Bank, and I said if it goes below $6.50, it could go into bankruptcy. Now it’s $5.50. They are interconnected to most European banks. So, something is really cooking over there, and I don’t really trust the banks. That’s why I am not selling my real estate. . . . I don’t trust the banks anymore.”
So, Deutsche Bank is the canary in the coal mine? Nenner says, “Definitely. If DB goes, I don’t know what all the other banks are going to do. . . . It looks like DB can go to zero. . . . Next step is $3.90. If it goes to that, it’s finished.”
DB is just one big bank in deep financial trouble, and it’s much bigger than just DB. Nenner says, “Other banks are also down 20%. Italian banks are very important. What happened in Italy? They closed everything down. There is no fashion business anymore. There is no car business anymore. There is nothing going on. How do you think these banks are going to make it?”
Nenner says he is forecasting a banking crisis, and the tip of the iceberg is Deutsche Bank. Nenner says, “They are interconnected to all the other banks in Europe. I don’t know how the other banks can survive if this bank gets into trouble.”
Does it get worse before it gets better? Nenner says, “I think we are heading for a depression. Usually we go into a recession at a 6% GDP. Now, we have 1.5% to 2% GDP. Usually, the Fed Funds are 6%, 7% or 8%. Now, they are almost zero. What are they going to do when we get a recession? You get very fast a negative GDP. You get very fast a negative interest rate, and it’s a big mess. This has been going on for many, many nice years, and all the Fed Presidents had tricks and let it go. They did not want to have a depression in their lifetime like the 1930’s. So, they kept it going, and now there is no way out anymore.”
So, there is no avoiding a depression? Nenner says, “Yep, and it is going to be very bad.”
Nenner is also bullish on gold and silver because there is “no other place for investors to hide.”

Headlines from the past three-days:
· Dow sinks 2,000 points in worst day since 2008, S&P 500 drops more than 7%
· Dow rallies more than 1,100 points in a wild session, halves losses from Monday’s sell-off
· Dow drops 1,400 points and tumbles into a bear market, down 20% from last month’s record close
It has, been a heck of a couple of weeks for the market with daily point swings running 1000, or more, points in either direction.
However, given Tuesday’s huge rally, it seemed as if the market’s recent rout might be over with the bulls set to take charge? Unfortunately, as with the two-previous 1000+ point rallies, the bulls couldn’t maintain their stand.
But with the markets having now triggered a 20% decline, ending the “bull market,” according to the media, is all “hope” now lost? Is the market now like an “Oriental Rug Factory” where “Everything Must Go?”
It certainly feels that way at the moment.
“Virus fears” have run amok with major sporting events playing to empty crowds, the Houston Live Stock Show & Rodeo was canceled, along with Coachella, and numerous conferences and conventions from Las Vegas to New York. If that wasn’t bad enough, Saudi Arabia thought they would start an “oil price” war just to make things interesting.
What is happening now, and what we have warned about for some time, is that markets needed to reprice valuations for a reduction in economic growth and earnings.
It has just been a much quicker, and brutal, event than even we anticipated.
The questions to answer now are:
Are we going to get a bounce to sell into?
Is the bear market officially started – from a change in trend basis; and,
Just how bad could this get?
On a weekly basis, the rising trend from the 2016 lows is clear. The market has NOW VIOLATED that trend, which suggests a “bear market” has indeed started. This means investors should consider maintaining increased cash allocations in portfolios currently. With the two longer-term sell signals, bottom panels, now triggered, it suggests that whatever rally may ensue short-term will likely most likely fail. (Also a classic sign of a bear market.)
Corornavirus Pandemic Update: US Deaths Reach 37 and 23 Are From the Same Senior Center – Current US Mortality Rate Minus the Senior Center Is Similar to Flu Numbers
AT RISK: GLOBAL FINANCIAL SYSTEM
The delicate balancing act to protect wealth is now in full crisis mode. The key players are central banks across the world and the corrupt bankrupt governments they seek to protect. At risk is the global financial system that has served them so well over the decades. For years these so-called guardians of the economy have siphoned wealth away from the many and into the hands of a few. Now unless they can pull a few more rabbits out of their hats rubber may hit the road.
President Donald Trump announced in a White House news conference that he would seek payroll tax relief and other measures to help businesses deal with the coronavirus outbreak.
The Associated Press reported Trump said they were discussing “a possible payroll tax cut or relief, substantial relief, very substantial relief, that’s big, that’s a big number,” Administration officials said the White House wasn’t ready to roll out specific economic proposals, CNBC reported. Trump also said he was seeking help for hourly-wage workers to ensure they’re “not going to miss a paycheck” and “don’t get penalized for something that’s not their fault.” These were in reaction to a large market drop as the covid-19 outbreak spread.
This translates into the idea we once again may be about to test the theory that “this time is different.” Like many of those skeptical of the financial house these folks have constructed through new creative and untried methods, I wait and watch.
How creative they will be in coming days has yet to be determined. Make no mistake, this is about keeping asset prices high and rising. It has nothing to do with returning markets to the principle of true price discovery which is the bedrock of a free, healthy, and open economic system. Unfortunately, to many people, asset value has become more important than the economy and those in charge of such things have lowered interest rates and printed money to support them.
This has created a false economy. Paper promises and things such as propping up the holding’s of pension funds has become increasingly important in maintaining the illusion there is light at the end of the economic tunnel. While central bankers claim to embrace a goal of 2% inflation they have to be tickled pink they have deceived the masses into believing it has not been achieved. The problem is that the moment people think inflation is on the rise these banks will lose the ability to continue their policies of easy and cheap credit.
If covid-19 does become the catalyst for a long-overdue reset of the global financial system, the amount of real wealth that does escape the crisis will set the bar that determines the rate of inflation or deflation in the coming years. Pensions, annuities, and even investments in stocks and such all fall into the area of paper promises that are often recorded somewhere far from sight as a digital entry on a computer. An enormous amount of wealth has been poured into intangible assets based on the faith they are a safe place to store it.
In the years just before the 2008 financial meltdown, there was a great deal of talk about the “Wealth Effect.” In 2007 many economists gave a lot of credit for the strong economy to rising home prices making people feel wealthier. This is because the wealth effect tends to drive consumers towards going forth and confidently buying things, This underlines why protecting asset prices is so important. While many people do not own stock directly many people do indirectly through various saving vehicles or from investing in retirement accounts. Many pension funds are also heavily invested in the markets. A falling market would most likely cause consumers to feel poorer and cause them to reduce spending.
While it may be a stressful exercise it is important to occasionally think about the many or multitudes of places your wealth might vanish into or how it could seep away. Much like a shell game where wealth is transferred in our modern society wealth is always on the move. It zips across borders at the click of a button and just because you deposit it with a local institution does not mean it stays in your community. We saw shades of this decades ago during the savings and loan crisis when huge beautiful buildings were constructed in certain areas from wealth transferred in from other parts of the country. Those areas were the big winners rather than those holding worthless notes when the loans used to build them went into default.
March 12, 2020March 12, 2020 by Michael Snyder – http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/we-just-witnessed-the-largest-single-day-stock-market-point-crash-in-history-again
It has happened again. On Thursday the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2,352 points, which was the largest single day stock market point crash in history. Of course the old record only lasted for three days, because on Monday the Dow dropped 2,013 points. And on Wednesday, we actually witnessed the third largest single day stock market point crash in history. So the three worst days in the history of the U.S. stock market (on a point basis) have all happened this week. On a percentage basis, the stunning decline that we witnessed on Thursday was the worst day for the Dow since the horrifying market crash of 1987. Wall Street is in a tremendous state of panic right now, and nobody is quite sure when this will end. (READ MORE...)

This is the third Coronavirus article I’ve written in the past month. The previous piece has become one of my most viewed, perhaps because it took a skeptical view regarding how Coronavirus® had “been reported, coupled with how it’s been handled, its dubious origins, the alleged number of infected and deceased, as well as the age and general health of those who are reported to have died”.
The article, at the same time, allowed for the dangerous reality generated by COVID-19 and, especially, in regards to the reactions the virus has generated. Here are a few examples of those modifiers:
In any event, healthy skepticism is not close-mindedness, per se, because we may one day have a genuine pandemic on our hands.
….However, it could be that everything we’re seeing regarding COVID-19 is real…
… So is COVID-19 real or is it a marketing gimmick?
….Once again, it could be this latest incarnation of coronavirus is a real killer and the mortality rates now being reported are completely bogus.
… to be sure, the public reactions, including within the financial markets, are real.
Although that last article slanted towards my suspicions, it also left some wiggle room if only because COVID-19 is not a hill I’d risk my credibility to die upon. There’s no need and I have nothing personally at stake. Honestly, I’m just an American Nobody playing it like Popeye umpiring a baseball game;
And be assured that one thing is absolutely certain at this point in time: COVID-19 has obtained near 100% global psychological saturation. Admittedly, it has become a very big deal.
Certainly, COVID-19 had the entire nation taking precaution last week; and if shelves were cleaned out in states with zerocases at the time, then that was a pretty telling sign of what we are now experiencing:
All over the nation, colleges are closing their campuses and migrating classes online. The state of Washington has banned gatherings more than 250 people in the Seattle areaand airlines are currently running “ghost flights” amid a “coronavirus crisis sales slump”.
Undoubtedly, COVID-19 has gone viral (pun intended) – and especially as an economic Black Swan.
Personally, I had reason and opportunity to fly to the Pacific Northwest this week, spur of the moment, but I chose not to, in part, because of the hysteria. Why take the chance? Even if I survived after getting infected, I still could get caught away from home via canceled flights and other potential societal reverberations.
Therefore, if this skeptical blogger has made decisions like that on the basis of COVID-19, then there is no doubt it COULD become the proverbial pin in the economic, and even civilizational, balloon.
What amazes me about the Kung Flu, however, is how much panic has been generated on the Alternative Internet. There seems to be a sort of “reverse lottery effect” in effect – like the way people buy tickets because they can’t win if they don’t play and, in so doing, they place their hope in a minuscule percentage of ever winning. Except now with COVID-19, it’s become like: “A 3% mortality rate? That’s still a chance it could happen to me!”
Indeed. The Alternative Internet has generated morbid concern, even especially among the remnant and this should come as no surprise because the Fifth Estate has proven more trustworthy than the corporations comprising the Mainstream Media. Moreover, it seems we want to believe COVID-19 is an indestructible man-made virus because Wuhan contains biolabs. And if COVID-19 proves to be the plague of this millennium, then all reporting and the ensuing prohibitive measures will have been justified. However, if Coronavirus® is shown to have been a propagandic psyop, we’ll know it worked because we wanted to believe.
As these words were being typed, the following article had top billing at The Drudge Report:
But if one clicked the link, they’d have read the following:
At the same time, he [Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases] 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.
A “lethality rate at somewhere around 1 percent”? But, still, 10 times more lethal than flu!
That’s like they didn’t shoot the sheriff but they shot the deputy.
To be sure, citing statistics is like looking out your window through a straw. You see what you see and miss the rest.
Of those who have ever died from the flu, did 100% of those deceased have the flu? What percentage of the dead were hospitalized, 80%, 90%, 100%? And was it really the flu that killed them or other underlying factors? Was it flu or pneumonia? Because many of the stats (and articles that we read) conflate these. And how many of those hospitalized with pneumonia, survived?
In the same 100,000 population, anyone can pull stats to tell different stories promote various narratives.
But who do we believe and why? Occam’s Razor? Or is nothing as it seems? These are the questions we should constantly be asking ourselves. Now more than ever. Because if I ruled the world I could set it ablaze tomorrow with this headline (and not be lying; it’s new because the name is new):
New FLUMONIA Kills 20%+ of Those Quarantined or Hospitalized
Even award-winning reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, a former Capitol Hill correspondent for CBS News, has tweeted regarding the frail condition of those who have died from COVID-19 in the United States:
As of this writing, there have been 39 deaths in the U.S.; and with most of the fatalities occurring at a nursing home in Washington State.
And, yet, the entire nation has been closed for business.
The NBA has suspended their season and the NCAA has cancelled March Madness. Broadway has shut down all productions and Madison Square Garden could be closed for months. Presidential primary debate venues have been shuffled, campaign rallies have been cancelled, and schools are now closed.
Of course, the stated reason for all of these precautions is to “flatten the curve”:
LIVE STREAM HERE 3 PM EST: President Trump To Declare Coronavirus National Emergency As Media Hype Is Causing Needless Panic Across US
(LIVE STREAM video)
https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/president-trump-to-declare-coronavirus-national-emergency-stafford-act-covid-19/ – by Geoffrey Grider March 13, 2020
President Trump said he will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. in Washington. Trump spoke Friday with Emmanuel Macron, the French president tweeted, about the pandemic, and agreed to organize a video conference with world leaders on Monday to coordinate research efforts on a vaccine and treatments and work on how to respond to the economic fallout. Declaring a national emergency would allow the government to marshal additional resources to combat the virus.
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP PLANS TO DECLARE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY ON FRIDAY OVER THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, INVOKING THE STAFFORD ACT TO OPEN THE DOOR TO MORE FEDERAL AID FOR STATES AND MUNICIPALITIES, ACCORDING TO TWO PEOPLE FAMILIAR WITH THE MATTER.
When the president addresses the nation live to discuss declaring the COVID-19 coronavirus a national emergency, you can watch it streamed live right on this page. I think the fact that President Trump wants to get out ahead of the coronavirus, is a good thing and shows the calm leadership this nation needs. But what is not a good thing is how people are needlessly panicking right now, mobbing supermarkets and buying all the toilet paper and antibacterial soap like hordes of locusts.
Why do I say that? Because hording toilet paper and antibacterial soap is silly, and people don’t even really know why they’re doing it other than because the Liberal media is telling them to do it. Do you think that antibacterial soap kills the coronavirus? No, it does not. An antibacterial anything doesn’t kill any virus which are not bacteria. But washing your hands is always a good thing, regardless of what soap you use. Washing your hands with hot, soapy water keeps you safe.
I TOOK THIS PHOTO THIS AFTERNOON AT OUR LOCAL PUBLIX SUPERMARKET, THIS IS THE TOILET PAPER AISLE
I will say this over and over, until people start listening. Don’t panic. This is not the 1918 Spanish Flu, this is not the Black Death of the bubonic plague, this virus is nothing worse than any other virus floating around. Can it kill you? Sure it can, if you’re weak, and have poor hygiene, and poor health, and if you’re old and infirm. Viruses kill lots of people who meet those criteria. But is this virus anything worse than anything else? No, it absolutely is not. Take precautions, watch your health, do everything you know to do…except panic.
Trump to Declare National Emergency to Speed Virus Response
FROM YAHOO NEWS: President Trump said he will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. in Washington. Trump spoke Friday with Emmanuel Macron, the French president tweeted, about the pandemic, and agreed to organize a video conference with world leaders on Monday to coordinate research efforts on a vaccine and treatments and work on how to respond to the economic fallout.
President Trump is under increasing pressure to act as governors and mayors nationwide step up actions to mitigate the spread, closing schools and canceling public events. Declaring a national emergency would allow the government to marshal additional resources to combat the virus, and also marks a symbolic turning point for the president, who has repeatedly compared the coronavirus to the seasonal flu and insisted that his administration had the outbreak under control.
U.S. stocks struggled to hold onto gains on Friday. The S&P 500 rose less than 1% in mid-day trading after climbing 6% at the open, following stocks’ worst day since 1987. Treasury yields increased as the Federal Reserve said it was buying $37 billion of bonds across maturities
Senate Democrats have urged Trump to invoke the Stafford Act and other disaster declaration requests they say would free up more than $42 billion in funding for states available in the Disaster Relief Fund.
An emergency declaration would allow a state to request a 75% federal cost-share for expenses that include emergency workers, medical tests, medical supplies, vaccinations, security for medical facilities, and more, according to a letter Democrats sent the president earlier this week.
Only a few emergency declarations for public health threats have been made since the 1960s, and only two have targeted disease outbreaks, when President Bill Clinton in 2000 declared emergencies in New York and New Jersey in response to the West Nile Virus. READ MORE:

President Donald Trump plans to declare a national emergency over the coronavirus pandemic, according to administration officials who spoke to NBC News.
NOW THE END BEGINS IS YOUR FRONT LINE DEFENCE AGAINST THE RISING TIDE OF DARKNESS IN THE LAST DAYS BEFORE THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
Fear of the coronavirus is causing shutdowns on a global scale like we have never seen before. Just about every major sporting event that you can think of has been either canceled or postponed, schools and universities are keeping students away, global tourism is absolutely collapsing, churches are being shuttered, conferences and festivals are being taken off the calendar, businesses are asking workers to work from home, and even Disneyland is being closed down. Over the past several days the wave of closings and cancellations has become an avalanche, and all of our lifestyles are going to be dramatically altered for the foreseeable future. (READ MORE…)

The globalist in the West are trying to destroy nationalism, which is the basis God has chosen to protect people from tyrants and evil ideologies. Stable moral Christian societies have built great communities, not perfect nations, but strong and enduring states, which have protected the world from immoral evils like communism, Islam, and Nazism. The global-socialist have indoctrinated the youth through public education and the media to reject this great heritage and accept the lie of Globalism, Secular Humanism, and Socialism.
The Globalist have pushed the horrible lie of self-creation, and Darwinian evolution. It has become the scientific model of a new utopia, one that promotes “Do what you will, determine your own reality, be your own god.” Secular humanist is using this lie in an attempt to answer the dilemma of self-creation (no God), which is a scientific impossibility (Having a first cause event, without cause and effect). Atheistic naturalism has thus become the scientific foundation of this present generation.
The Secular Humanist have infused into the minds of our people, the lie of moral relativism, which has become the moral foundation for our self-destructive laws. The very same lie Satan told Eve, you can be like God, knowing good from evil, or said in contemporary language, “you can choose for yourself what is right and what is wrong.” Sound familiar? They’re teaching the people of the West, “there is no right, there is no wrong, only what you feel is right and wrong matters,” we have no absolutes, no God, no ultimate moral lawgiver or foundation to build a robust righteous nation upon. Relativism has become the moral ideology of this present generation.
The Socialist have pushed the ideology of inequality and oppression by the once Judeo-Christian centric nations, and only through unlimited migration can this wrong be righted, all in their attempt to destroy national borders, both literal and ideologically. The Global-socialist believe only a global government can save humanity. Yet, we all know, absolute power corrupts absolutely, especially consolidated power. And with no national state to resist such a force, one can only imagine the level of oppression that will result. Socialism has become the economic model for this present generation.
The globalist-socialist use language in our schools and media to criticise and shame those with traditional, historical, and Biblical beliefs. We hear them commonly us names like: Nazis, xenophobic, Islamophobic, homophobic, and many other names, all in an attempt to silence us. We are seeing them attempt to systematically dismantle our community structures and destroy our societies. As Christians we cannot allow others to silence us. We have a higher calling, one that comes from a higher authority, Jesus Christ.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20, NASB.
We are commanded to teach, preach, and reach the lost in this fallen age, even when our words may seem to run diametrically against the flood that’s enveloping our world. The Lord Jesus Christ has entrusted to each of us, His disciples, to faithfully be His ambassadors in this fallen world, calling all men to repentance and reconciliation with God, through faith in Christ Jesus.
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17-20, NASB.
Why do we see migrants from other countries brave long travels, crossing rivers, enduring horrible weather, crossing oceans, climbing walls, all in an attempt to get here? Because their ideologies are inferior and destructive!
Why do the global-socialists in power so often pass laws that make private education illegal, or at least very difficult in our countries? To control and indoctrination the people of this world!
The battle is real, and the enemy is real. Our enemy is not flesh and blood, but spiritual forces that are controlling those who oppose the saving message of Jesus Christ, all in their vain attempt to be gods of this world. But we are God’s children, and we are called to love our enemies and pray for their salvation. We are commanded to be salt and light in this dark and decaying age.
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men”.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. – (Matthew 5:13-16, NASB).
If you have any doubt about my warning, read the Book of Revelation. We are quickly moving towards this prophetic fulfillment. Don’t believe their lies, reject their deceptive words, reject globalism, reject their soon coming global economic marking system, and reject their hatred of Jesus Christ, the Bible, and Christianity!
FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT CHRISTIANS, I SAY TO YOU, REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND PLACE YOUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST!
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).
Rom. 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom. 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God
Eph. 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Col. 3:6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
James 1:20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
Rev. 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Rev. 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Luke 21:26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them
SO WON’T YOU ACCEPT JESUS NOW AND BE REMOVED FROM THAT EVENT (OF TRIBULATION) AND LIVE FOREVER WITH JESUS IN THE FAMILY OF GOD 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)
SEEK THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHILE HE STILL CAN BE FOUND – HE IS COMMING 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 judgement 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 judgement 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.
