Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

——————————————-

Raptured On Pentecost?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/raptured-on-pentecost/
QUESTION:    I understand that many Biblical scholars believe Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem was on Sunday, April 6, A.D. 32; His death on the cross was Thursday afternoon, April 10; and He arose before sunrise the Sunday of April 13. Pentecost, the birth of the Church, was fifty days later. While only God knows the precise year and timing of the Rapture, is there any Biblical reference that may give a clue that it could occur on a “birthday” of the Church?
ANSWER:    I believe that while God knows exactly when everything will happen, as far as Earth is concerned, the Rapture is a number sensitive event not a date sensitive one. By that I mean that the Rapture will occur when the full number of believers has come into the Church, not on a predetermined day.
The Rapture of the church is not directly connected to any other end times event and doesn’t have to fulfil the prophetic implications of any Jewish Festival. However, if it did please God to have the Rapture occur on a Jewish feast day, by far the most logical candidate is Pentecost.
Tradition has it that Enoch, a Biblical model of the Church, was both born and taken live into Heaven on the date that would become Pentecost. Pentecost is also the only feast that specifically calls for bread baked with leaven, or yeast. (Leviticus 23:17) Leaven is a model of sin, and the Church is populated exclusively by sinners. The Book of Ruth is a beautiful analogy of the relationship between Naomi, a model of Israel, Ruth, a model of the Church, and Boaz, the Kinsman-Redeemer. It’s read in the synagogues on Pentecost.

In The Seven Letters, Who Gets Raptured?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/in-the-seven-letters-who-gets-raptured/
QUESTION:    I was just reading The Revelation Story (The Bible thru the Eyes of its Writers)…about the Rapture ‘as promised to the Church at Philadelphia’. Does this suggest that only the Evangelical Church will be raptured, leaving behind the Catholic, Protestant and Liberal/New Age believers?
I often wonder about the differences in the various denominations and whether it will have an effect on who really is saved and who only thinks/believes they are. For example, I can’t understand how or why the Catholic Church believes they should pray through the virgin Mary in order to reach the Lord, when it’s made very clear that Jesus broke down all barriers when He died on the cross. Isn’t it a form of idolatry to pray to or through anyone but the Lord? I’m not saying that Catholics are bad or anything, but I do wonder whether their beliefs/acts may betray them in the end? Am I wrong? It would be nice to think I am…
ANSWER:    If you read them carefully, you’ll find that in both the letters to Thyatira (Catholic Church) and Sardis (Main Line Protestants), believers are distinguished from unbelievers. Believers are promised Eternal life (rapture) and unbelievers are warned to repent before it’s too late. In the letter to Laodicea (Liberal/New Age), no such distinction is made, although the Lord is standing outside knocking, hoping that someone, anyone, will hear His voice and open the door.
Jesus did purchase free and unlimited direct access to God for all of us. Praying through Mary or one of the saints to reach Jesus is a form of idolatry, since you’re attributing power that is His alone to something else. Jesus and the Holy Spirit are the only intercessors identified in the New Testament. (Romans 8:26 & 34) If you pray directly to Mary or a saint, or give them credit for answered prayers, you’re committing blasphemy.

President Trump Orders The Military To Immediately Deploy To Washington DC To Repel ANTIFA Forces, Says Will Deploy Nationwide If Needed

https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/president-trump-makes-fiery-speech-warning-antifa-terrorists-orders-military-to-patrol-streets-washington-dc/ – by Geoffrey Grider June 1, 2020
The troops are expected to provide security in the nation’s capital but not perform law enforcement duties such as arrest and detention of protesters or rioters. Two defense officials said the troops will be coming from a unit at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Because of Washington, DC’s unique status, the deployment does not require local authorization. There is no indication that President Trump is invoking the Insurrection Act, which is not required due to the fact that the forces will not be performing law enforcement actions. The Pentagon did not immediately respond for request for comment.

An active duty military police battalion consisting of 200 to 250 military personnel is now in the process of deploying to Washington, DC, and could be in the nation’s capital as soon as tonight to repel ANTIFA forces.
After an optically-disastrous weekend of sending  mixed messaging, President Trump today seems to have found his footing. In one of his shortest speeches on record, Trump announced that he is officially ordering active duty military be deployed to Washington, DC, to reclaim the streets from ANTIFA forces to stop the looting, rioting, arson and physical assaults that have been the hallmark of the ‘peaceful protests’ of the radical Left.
This is not martial law per se, pretty close to it, but Trump is out of options at this point. Left unchecked, I feel the ANTIFA forces would have breached the White House in the next day or two. Since the military will now be on the streets, they need to show George Soros and company what liberty looks like. The fine men and women of the United States Armed Forces need to release a little ‘shock-and-awe’ and make the ANTIFA forces pay a price for their rebellion.

Defying His Enemies, President Trump Walks To Burned Church And Lifts Up The King James Bible, Driving The Enemies Of God Into Apoplectic Frenzy

Michael Gerson, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush and Washington Post columnist, denounced Trump’s photo-op at St. John’s Church as an act of sacrilege. Tear gas canisters could be heard exploding as Trump spoke in the Rose Garden. He then walked over to the 200-year-old church that over the weekend was set on fire as demonstrators clashed with police. The protesters appeared to be acting peacefully before they were dispersed by force.

Posing for the cameras, President Donald Trump held a King James Bible at St. John’s Church near the White House on Monday evening after law enforcement cleared protesters out of the area with tear gas before his visit.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP caused an absolute firestorm yesterday, but not because he ordered the military to take back the streets of our nation’s capital from ANTIFA forces. No, as the Commander-in-chief of the world’s greatest armed forces, most people expected him to do that. No real surprise there. But what drove the NEW WORLD ORDER elites and the Laodicean hirelings over the edge was when he lifted up that 7-sealed King James Bible. In that singular moment, the world was reminded where the real battle lies.
“I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” John 17:14-16 (KJB)
Do you recall when we told you over 3 years ago that God was going to use Donald Trump to enact a ‘global shaking‘, and that it would be a time of judgment upon the whole world? That was a pretty big claim to make back in 2016, I’ll grant you, but here in 2020 it is coming to pass in technicolor, wouldn’t you say? The whole world literally is shaking at this very moment, from Bill Gates and ID2020, a global lockdown, crashing world economies, and now ANTIFA forces causing death and destruction in 200 US cities, what we told you was coming has arrived. And in the midst of it all is the man God placed in power, defying his enemies and daring to lift up the word of God over a lost and dying world.
Now think about something for a moment. The St. John’s Church where Trump help up the King James Bible was burned by ANTIFA a few nights ago, they had set a fire inside. Where was that fire located? In the nursery of the church where babies usually are, and in this neighbor-hood primarily black babies. If you had to guess, do you know the most-aborted race of babies that Planned Parenthood kills every day? Black babies. Planned Parenthood was started to exterminate black babies. Bill Gates father ran Planned Parenthood. Bill Gates wants to reduce the population through a global vaccination program. Trump goes to this church as raises up the King James Bible over all of it. Are you getting all of this…any of this, is it starting to sink in now what is really happening? God is speaking right now, extremely loud and incredibly close, are you listening? Time is almost up, I hope you are ready for what comes next.
Read the following tweets from the lukewarm Laodicean crowd, they despise President Trump lifting up God’s word, but to me it’s a blessing. Why? Because it is always a blessing when your enemies reveal themselves, that’s why. Pray for President Trump, the target on his back has grown considerably larger now, he is God’s man for this time. The end times.

Trump is urging the nation’s governors to get tougher with violent protesters and to deploy the National Guard. He said in the Rose Garden that he is an ally of peaceful protesters, but he stressed that I am your president of law and order.”

SHOCKING EVIDENCE THAT INDICATES THAT SOMEBODY IS TRYING TO ORCHESTRATE AN INTERNAL UPRISING INSIDE THE UNITED STATES

June 1, 2020June 1, 2020 by Michael Snyderhttp://endoftheamericandream.com/

Violence has erupted in major cities all over America yet again today, and we are being told to brace ourselves for more rioting, looting and civil unrest in the days ahead.  The death of George Floyd was a great tragedy, and the vast majority of Americans agree that we do not want to see that sort of police brutality in our nation, and so this should actually be a moment that brings our country together.  But instead, America is being torn apart.  The protests against police brutality have been hijacked by sinister forces, and they are attempting to channel the outrage over George Floyd’s death in a very violent direction.  As you will see below, law enforcement authorities all over the U.S. are telling us that they have identified a highly organized effort to orchestrate violence, and this appears to be happening on a nationwide basis.

THE HORRIFYING CIVIL UNREST WE HAVE BEEN WARNING YOU ABOUT IS HERE, AND AMERICA IS LITERALLY COMING APART AT THE SEAMS

June 1, 2020June 1, 2020 by Michael Snyderhttp://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/

For a very long time, many of us have been loudly warning the American people that this was coming.  The mainstream media and many of our national leaders have been fanning the flames of hatred, anger, frustration and division on a daily basis for many years, and it was just a matter of time before we witnessed an eruption of violence of this magnitude.  Over the last week, we have seen protests in at least 145 different U.S. cities, and reports of rioting, looting and violence are coming in so fast that it is literally impossible to keep up with them all.  So far, at least 40 U.S. cities have imposed curfews, the National Guard has been activated in at least 15 states, and at least 4,100 people have been arrested.  On Sunday night, the violence in Washington D.C. became so alarming that President Trump was actually rushed to a secret bunker under the White House(READ MORE…)

U.S. TO DEPLOY MILITARY TO QUELL VIOLENT PROTESTS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By Agencies
TRUMP VOWS TO DEPLOY MILITARY TO QUELL PROTESTS AS CLASHES RAGE NEAR WHITE HOUSE
Amid racial unrest across the nation, US President Donald Trump on Monday declared himself “the president of law and order” and threatened to deploy the United States military to American cities to quell a rise of violent protests.
As Trump spoke, an incredible TV split screen developed around the White House. While he addressed the nation in the White House’s idyllic Rose Garden, a series of military vehicles rolled out front on Pennsylvania Avenue and military police and law enforcement clashed with protesters at Lafayette Park.
Those peaceful demonstrators were cleared so Trump could walk across the park to St. John’s Episcopal Church, known as “The Church of the Presidents,” which suffered fire damage in a protest this week. Holding a Bible, he then stood with several of his Cabinet members as the cameras clicked.
“We have the greatest country in the world,” Trump declared. “We’re going to keep it safe.”
President Trump: “I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets…if a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary…then I will deploy the United States military”
Trump said he would mobilize “thousands and thousands” of soldiers to keep the peace if governors did not use the National Guard to shut down the protests. Loud tear gas explosions could be heard as authorities moved what appeared to be peaceful protests in the park. The escalation came just after Attorney General William Barr came to the park to to survey the demonstrators.
“What happened in the city last night was a total disgrace,” Trump said of the Washington protests. “As we speak I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults and wanton destruction of property.”
“These are not acts of peaceful protests, these are acts of domestic terror,” Trump said. “I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and a lengthy sentences in jail.”
According to senior defense officials, between 600 and 800 National Guard members from five states were being sent to Washington to provide assistance. Those troops were either already on the ground or will arrive by midnight.
Under the Civil War-era Posse Comitatus Act, federal troops are prohibited from performing domestic law enforcement actions such as making arrests, seizing property or searching people. In extreme cases, however, the president can invoke the Insurrection Act, also from the Civil War, which allows the use of active-duty or National Guard troops for law enforcement.
The officials said that some of the National Guard in Washington, DC will be armed and others will not. They said that the Washington, DC guard members do not have non-lethal weapons. The military police that are visible in the city are members of the Guard.

MULTIPLE DEATHS, THREAT OF MILITARY INTERVENTION, ‘SOCIAL CONTRACT’ BETWEEN GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE IS UNRAVELING

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Tyler Durden
MULTIPLE DEAD/INJURED AS RIOTERS TARGET COPS AFTER TRUMP’S THREAT OF MILITARY FORCE FAILS TO DETER 7TH NIGHT OF VIOLENCE
Update (0830ET): Last night saw the worst of the violence aimed at police officers with one dead, at least five shot, and at least four more run over by “protesters.”
At least five U.S. police were hit by gunfire during violent protests over the death of a black man in police custody, police and media said, hours after President Donald Trump said he would deploy the military if unrest does not stop.
  • – One US Marshall killed in Las Vegas
  • – Four officers shot in St. Louis
  • – At least two officers run over in Buffalo, NY
  • – One NYPD officer run over in the Bronx
  • – Another run over in Greenwich Village
An emotional St Louis police commissioner, John Hayden, said about 200 protesters were “jumping up and down like crazy people”, looting and throwing fireworks and rocks at officers.
Hard to describe how rampant the looting was tonight in Midtown Manhattan and how lawless it was. Complete anarchy. Literally hundreds of stores up and down Broadway, Fifth Ave, Sixth Ave. Kids ruling the streets like it was a party.
President Trump on Monday evening threatened to activate federal troops if governors and city mayors did not act to suppress continuing social unrest across major metros over the killing of George Floyd. 
After the president spoke, the situation across the country rapidly deteriorated into the evening, as riots continued for the seventh straight day. 
Protests were organised in more than 200 cities. Many of the demonstrations began peacefully but turned violent by evening. About 140 cities saw riots, resulting in government officials in 40 metro areas to impose strict curfews. New York City issued its first curfew on Monday, which was the first time an official curfew was imposed in the city since 1943.
Deaths connected with social unrest continues to grow. Here’s the tally so far according to AP News:
Here are some of the most important developments from the overnight: 
  • President Trump threatens to deploy military if states and cities don’t squash social unrest
  • Washington, Baltimore and New York unrest continues to worsen 
  • Helicopters buzz protesters in downtown Washington, DC 
  • NYPD officer hit by a car in the Bronx
  • Las Vegas police officer shot during protests
  • Two officers hit by a car in Buffalo during protests 
  • Four St. Louis officers shot during protests
  • “This is how nations collapse”: Fox News’ Tucker Carlson slams Trump’s response to protests
  • Pelosi, Schumer condemn President Trump for tear-gassing protesters outside White House
  • National Guard forceMore…s activated in 23 states and Washington, DC
  • 40 cities and Washington, DC, have imposed curfews
  • Looting intensifies in Manhattan
  • Protests worsen in Los Angeles and Oakland
In the past seven days, at least nine people have died, +4,000 arrested, riots rage in 140 cities, hundreds (or maybe thousands of stores looted), commercial and government buildings burned, and National Guard deployed in 23 states — here are some of the scenes of the chaos from the overnight: 
Looting seen in New York City and Los Angeles as curfew nears and protests/looting spread to the suburbs around the nation. High-end stores like Bloomingdales, Gucci, Nike Soho, Chanel, Tory Burch, Kate Spade were all vandalized. Best Buy in Union Square and several drug stores were also hit.
CJ HOPKINS: MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS BEEN CONDITIONING YOU FOR THIS UPRISING FOR FOUR YEARS
CJ Hokpins via The Consent Factory,
Well, it looks like the Resistance’s long-anticipated “Second Civil War” has finally begun … more or less exactly on cue. Rioting has broken out across the nation. People are looting and burning stores and attacking each other in the streets. Robocops are beating, tear-gassing, and shooting people with non-lethal projectiles. State National Guards have been deployed, curfews imposed, “emergencies” declared. Secret Servicemen are fighting back angry hordes attempting to storm the White House. Trump is tweeting from an “underground bunker.” Opportunist social media pundits on both sides of the political spectrum are whipping people up into white-eyed frenzies. Americans are at each other’s throats, divided by identity politics, consumed by rage, hatred, and fear.
Things couldn’t be going better for the Resistance if they had scripted it themselves.
Actually, they did kind of script it themselves. Not the murder of poor George Floyd, of course. Racist police have been murdering Black people for as long as there have been racist police. No, the Resistance didn’t manufacture racism. They just spent the majority of the last four years creating and promoting an official narrative which casts most Americans as “white supremacists” who literally elected Hitler president,and who want to turn the country into a racist dictatorship.
According to this official narrative, which has been relentlessly disseminated by the corporate media, the neoliberal intelligentsia, the culture industry, and countless hysterical, Trump-hating loonies, the Russians put Donald Trump in office with those DNC emails they never hacked and some division-sowing Facebook ads that supposedly hypnotized Black Americans into refusing to come out and vote for Clinton. Putin purportedly ordered this personally, as part of his plot to “destroy democracy.” The plan was always for President Hitler to embolden his white-supremacist followers into launching the “RaHoWa,” or the “Boogaloo,” after which Trump would declare martial law, dissolve the legislature, and pronounce himself Führer. Then they would start rounding up and murdering the Jews, and the Blacks, and Mexicans, and other minorities, according to this twisted liberal fantasy.
I’ve been covering the roll-out and dissemination of this official narrative since 2016, and have documented much of it in my essays, so I won’t reiterate all that here. Let’s just say, I’m not exaggerating, much. After four years of more or less constant conditioning, millions of Americans believe this fairy tale, despite the fact that there is absolutely zero evidence whatsoever to support it. Which is not exactly a mystery or anything. It would be rather surprising if they didn’t believe it. We’re talking about the most formidable official propaganda machine in the history of official propaganda machines.
And now the propaganda is paying off. The protesting and rioting that typically follows the murder of an unarmed Black person by the cops has mushroomed into “an international uprising” cheered on by the corporate media, corporations, and the liberal establishment, who don’t normally tend to support such uprisings, but they’ve all had a sudden change of heart, or spiritual or political awakening, and are down for some serious property damage, and looting, and preventative self-defense, if that’s what it takes to bring about justice, and to restore America to the peaceful, prosperous, non-white-supremacist paradise it was until the Russians put Donald Trump in office.
In any event, the Resistance media have now dropped their breathless coverage of the non-existent Corona-Holocaust to breathlessly cover the “revolution.” The American police, who just last week were national heroes for risking their lives to beat up, arrest, and generally intimidate mask-less “lock-down violators” are now the fascist foot soldiers of the Trumpian Reich. The Nike corporation produced a commercial urging people to smash the windows of their Nike stores and steal their sneakers. Liberal journalists took to Twitter, calling on rioters to “burn that shit down!” … until the rioters reached their gated community and started burning down their local Starbucks. Hollywood celebrities are masking up and going full-black bloc, and doing legal support. Chelsea Clinton is teaching children about David and the Racist Goliath. John Cusack’s bicycle was attacked by the pigs. I haven’t checked on Rob Reiner yet, but I assume he is assembling Molotov cocktails in the basement of a Resistance safe house somewhere in Hollywood Hills.

The Social Contract Between Government And People Is Unravelling
 Mark Glennon via Wirepoints.org,
Numbers, budgets, charts and graphs about government finances. That’s what we do here. We try to understand where public money should be spent and what it accomplishes.
Through that lens, it’s difficult to know where to begin on what has befallen the Chicago area and most of the country.
For now, this simple observation seems paramount:
The most fundamental element of the social contract between government and the people is cracking.
That’s the obligation of government to keep its citizens safe. For that, we surrender a portion of of our freedom and wealth to government for the collective good.
That arrangement has been recognized as a foundational philosophy of civil society since Thomas Hobbes articulated it over 300 years ago.
Citizens expect government to protect their lives and adhere to to a civil process even when being arrested, just as they expect to be protected from riots and looting. Both expectations are now broken.
“The sight of looters and arsonists pillaging stores at will has shaken the confidence of many that law enforcement is capable of maintaining the peace. It has also tainted the very real grief felt over the tragic loss of life.”
That’s not from a source that’s unsympathetic to George Floyd or protesters. It’s from an editorial in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
What will be the consequences breaking the social contract? Speculate if you want, but know that it may extend far beyond George Floyd’s murder and the resulting violence.

ANTIFA TO BE DESIGNATED AS TERRORIST GROUP – THEN WHAT?

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Sarah Lee
IF ANTIFA IS DESIGNATED A TERRORIST GROUP, THERE ARE A LOT OF POSSIBLE CHARGES COMING
Once Trump declared his intent Saturday to name antifa a terrorist organization — thought by many observers on the ground to be one of the main groups responsible for inciting the looting and rioting — celebrity calls to provide material support through bail donations began to look a lot different since providing material support to a named terrorist group violates federal laws such as the PATRIOT Act. Basically, if someone wanted to make that case, it’s not outside the realm of possibility they could.
Oops.
The terrorist designation also makes prosecution under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) much easier, something Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz has been pushing since last July when he wrote a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr asking the DOJ to name antifa a terrorist group.
Barr and the Trump administration took Cruz up on his suggestion Saturday.
Under RICO, as Washington Examiner investigative journalist Kerry Picket notes, any group associated with antifa can be charged.
In fact, RICO allows individuals who support these groups to be charged right alongside members of the group who actually commit crimes on the ground. And RICO does something else:  it can go after the property and money of those connected to these groups.
This could get very interesting if an overtly direct link is ever discovered between billionaire lefty money men like George Soros (it’s become legend that he finances antifa, but the association is loose, probably intentionally) and one or more of the many groups antifa co-opts and organizes/pays to riot and loot in the name of anarchy.
Some journalists, like this gentleman with the New York Times, would have Americans look away from this extraordinary news that will likely lead to success quelling the attacks-from-within the nation is currently facing.

WILL ANNEXATION BE THE FLASHPOINT IN THE MIDDLE EAST? UPDATES – U.S. TRYING TO SLOW PROCESS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By Toi Staff
NETANYAHU TALKS ANNEXATION WITH KUSHNER; US SAID TO WANT TO ‘SLOW THE PROCESS’
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz held separate talks Monday with top US officials about West Bank annexation plans. Netanyahu has stated repeatedly in recent weeks that he intends to move ahead with the annexation of parts of the West Bank, beginning next month.
Netanyahu held a conference call with Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s adviser and son-in-law, who played a key role in drafting Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan for peace, which was unveiled at the White House in late January. Also on the call were Avi Berkowitz, the White House envoy on Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer.
According to a Channel 13 report, citing unnamed American sources, the US officials were exploring precisely if and how Israel intends to proceed with unilateral annexation — which Netanyahu has said would be coordinated with the administration — and came away from the conversations without a definitive answer.
Quoting a senior Israeli source, the TV report also said that the Americans “want to downplay the enthusiasm” for imminent annexation — “to greatly slow the process” — because the administration is preoccupied, among other matters, with nationwide protests following the killing of George Floyd by a policeman in Minneapolis last week, on top of the COVID-19 crisis and accompanying economic fallout.
On Monday afternoon, Gantz’s office issued a statement that the defense minister had ordered IDF chief Aviv Kohavi to “step up preparations for the IDF ahead of diplomatic efforts on the agenda in the Palestinian arena” — a clear reference to annexation.
The Palestinians preemptively rejected the plan. Jordan has threatened to review its peace treaty with Israel over the annexation issue.
Gantz’s stance may impact Netanyahu’s decision on how to proceed, but the Netanyahu-Gantz coalition deal gives Netanyahu the right to advance annexation moves from July 1 — as long as he can secure a Knesset majority, which is almost guaranteed — even if Gantz opposes him.
US officials have given mixed signals, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saying in Israel last month that annexation was Israel’s decision to make, while a State Department spokesperson later said in a telephone briefing for Israeli reporters that annexation “should be part of discussions between the Israelis and the Palestinians.”
Netanyahu, immediately after the proposal was unveiled, said he intended to begin annexation within days, but Kushner rebuffed that plan, and the US instituted a joint American-Israel mapping committee, which has been working since, to determine the specific territory allocated to Israel under the Trump proposal.
Despite Gantz’s statement on Monday, the IDF has for some time been preparing for the potential fallout of unilateral annexation. Channel 13 reported that the IDF has been readying for a wide variety of potential scenarios, including an upsurge in Palestinian terrorism and widespread protests that might necessitate a call-up of reservists. It said two drills for a range of scenarios were planned for the next few days between the IDF and the Shin Bet security service.
However, the IDF top brass still do not know when, or even if, Israel may move ahead with annexation, and if so, on what scale, the TV report said.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who last month announced the severing of security ties with Israel amid the talk of annexation, is to hold “an emergency meeting” in Ramallah on Tuesday night, the TV report said, to discuss how to thwart annexation by “legal and other means.”
The report quoted unnamed Palestinian sources saying that “a wave of violence” would be unavoidable if Israel goes ahead with annexation, since the Hamas terror group “aims to set the [Palestinian] street on fire.”

IRAN’S ATTEMPT TO POISON ISRAEL’S DRINKING WATER – ‘MIRACULOUSLY FAILED

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz
IRAN NEARLY POISONED ALL OF ISRAEL’S DRINKING WATER: MIRACULOUSLY FAILED 
An unprecedented Iranian cyber-attack targeted six facilities in Israel’s water infrastructure on April 24-25 nearly dumped lethal levels of chemicals into the Israeli water system. 
Fortunately, the attack impacted some systems but did not cause any disruption in the water supply or waste management. The computer system was breached but the cyber-attack was blocked before any damage could be done. 
It has now been revealed that the Iranian cyber-attack on the water infrastructure in Israel was not merely an attack on data systems of the type Israel faces on a daily basis. In the attack, the water computer system was breached but the attack was blocked just in time before any damage could be done. The attack was reportedly routed through US servers.
“This was an attack that goes against all codes, even in war,” said an Israeli official to Channel 13. “Even from the Iranians we didn’t expect something like this. This is an attack that cannot be done.” 
 Yigal Unna, Director General of Israel National Cyber Directorate, announced on Thursday addressed an international cyber-conference on Thursday, revealing that the intent of the cyber-attack on the water infrastructure was far greater and far deadlier than previously thought, calling it a “historic turning point in cyber-warfare, but this was just the beginning.”
Yigal Unna, Director General of Israel National Cyber Directorate, announced on Thursday addressed an international cyber-conference on Thursday, revealing that the intent of the cyberattack on the water infrastructure was far greater and far deadlier than previously thought, calling it a “historic turning point in cyberwarfare, but this was just the beginning.”
Cyber attacks typically target databases or websites. But this attack was the first of its type, attempting to effect real-world events. 
“We can see something like this aiming to cause damage to real life and not to IT or data,” Unna said. “If the bad guys would have succeeded in their plot, we would now be facing in the middle of the corona crisis, very big damage to the civilian population; a lack of water,” Unna said, noting that the attack was well-organized and not conducted by regular criminals. 
Even more concerning was the aspect of the Iranian cyberattack which attempted to control the release of chemicals into the water system, a cyber-first. “Even worse than that, when you mix chlorine or other chemicals with the wrong proportions within the water, it can be harmful and disastrous,” Unna added.
If successful, the attack could have theoretically poisoned all of Israel’s drinking water.
“It is a part of some attack over Israel and over the national security of Israel and not for financial benefit,” he said. “The attack happened but the damage was prevented and that is our goal and our mission. And now we are in the middle of preparing for the next phase to come because it will come eventually.”

A NEW CLUB OF 10 NATIONS PROPOSED

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By Pnw Staff
A NEW GLOBAL CLUB OF 10 NATIONS
The United Kingdom has proposed a plan to create a new club of democratic nations to address the reliance of the world on Chinese technology partners for 5G.  
The COVID-19 crisis has revealed the dangers of relying on outside sources for infrastructure needs but more importantly to many nations is the security risk associated with giving Chinese tech companies so much control over what many believe will be a new technology boom reaching every aspect of our lives. 
5G technology will do much more than just give us faster download speeds and low latency. Through it’s increased capacity and connectivity for billions of devices—especially in the areas of virtual reality, the Internet of Things, and artificial intelligence it has the potential to create a network that can connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices. 
Those countries who can create the infrastructure and roll it out nationwide first have the greater potential to lead in many areas that will have global implications for decades to come.
Such fears have led the US in recent months to take action against Huawei, China’s first global tech brand and a maker of network equipment and smartphones. It is now prevented from doing business in the US, as it believes the company is being used by the Chinese leadership to serve their interest instead of the countries it is building it for.  
The UK has also launched an inquiry into Huawei’s involvement in the country’s mobile network upgrade in the wake of US sanctions against the company and has now proposed a far more reaching solution – the ‘D10’.
The ‘D10’ club of democratic partners, which would include G7 countries – UK, US, Italy, Germany, France, Japan and Canada – plus Australia, South Korea and India would aim to create alternative suppliers of 5G equipment and other technologies to avoid relying on China.
These 10 members represent more than 50% of the worlds Gross Domestic Product and would certainly have the economic power to make changes on a global scale. While it is unlikely at this point in time, should these 10 countries create a more permanent and long lasting alliance beyond responding to the 5G issue it would represent one of the most powerful economic alliances in the history of our world.
This proposed club of nations demonstrates that when their is common cause, countries can come together in times of difficulty or crisis.  The initial formation of the G7 came about in response to economic crisis of the past.  The current economic crises caused by COVID-19 could certainly still result in some global alliances as the world looks to unify it’s response and policies to deal with a crisis that is far from over.

IMMUNITY PASSPORTS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Alexis Hancock and Karen Gullo
Immunity Passports Are A Threat To Our Privacy And Information Security
With states beginning to ease shelter-in-place restrictions, the conversation on COVID-19 has turned to questions of when and how we can return to work, take kids to school, or plan air travel.
Several countries and U.S. states, including the UK, Italy, Chile, Germany, and California, have expressed interest in so-called “immunity passports” — a system of requiring people to present supposed proof of immunity to COVID-19 in order to access public spaces, work sites, airports, schools, or other venues.
In many proposed schemes, this proof would be stored in a digital token on a phone.
Immunity passports would threaten our privacy and information security, and would be a significant step toward a system of national digital identification that can be used to collect and store our personal information and track our location.
Immunity passports are purportedly intended to help combat the spread of COVID-19. But there is little evidence that they would actually accomplish that.
On a practical level, there is currently no test for COVID-19 immunity; what we have are antibody tests. But we don’t know whether people with antibodies have immunity.
Meanwhile, there has been a flood of flawed tests and fraudulent marketing schemes about antibody tests. Even when validated tests are widely available, they may not be 100 percent accurate.
The system should be a non-starter unless it can guarantee due process for those who want to challenge their test results.
This has often been a problem before; as we saw with the “no-fly” lists created after 9/11, it is very difficult to get off the list, even for those whose inclusion was a mistake.
The problem with immunity passports isn’t just medical — it’s ethical. Access to both COVID-19 testing and antibody testing is spotty.
Reports abound of people who fear they have been infected desperately trying to get tested to no avail.
Analysis has shown that African Americans are far less likely than white, Hispanic, or Asian patients to be tested before they end up in the emergency room.
Mobile testing sites administered by Verily (a subsidiary of Google’s parent Alphabet) require people to have a smartphone and a Google account.
Residents in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district, one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods, were turned away from testing sites because they didn’t have cell phones.
Requiring smart-phone-based immunity verification to access public spaces like offices and schools would exacerbate existing inequities and reinforce a two-tiered system of the privileged, who can move about freely in society, and the vulnerable, who can’t work, shop, or attend school because they don’t have a cell phone or access to testing.
We’ve been here before. When yellow fever struck the South in the 1850s, those thought to be “unacclimated” to the disease were unemployable.
This burdened Black and lower-income people more than privileged members of society.
As we saw then, conditioning access to society on immunity incentivizes “bug-chasing” — that is, people deliberately trying to get sick in order to get the immunity passport.
No one should have to expose themselves to a potentially deadly disease with no cure to find work.
The  push for immunity passports has largely been premised on the promise of technological solutions to a public health crisis.
proposed bill in California, for example, would use blockchain technology to facilitate an immunity passport system on peoples’ smartphones. We oppose this bill.
Technological advancements such as blockchain technology or other methods of implementation do not address our objections to this type of system in of itself.
Moreover, digital-format immunity passports could normalize digital-format proof-of-status documents more generally.
Advocates of immunity passports visualize a world where we can’t pass through a door to a workplace, school, or restaurant until the gatekeeper scans our credentials.
This would habituate gatekeepers to demand such status credentials, and habituate the public to submit to these demands.
This digital system could easily be expanded to check not just a person’s immunity status, but any other bit of personal information that a gatekeeper might deem relevant, such as age, pregnancy, HIV status, or criminal history.
The system could also be adjusted to document not just a particular person’s status, but also when that person passed through a door that required proof of such status.
And all data of all such passages could be accumulated into one database.
This would be a troubling step towards digital national identification, which EFF has long opposed because it would create new ways to digitally monitor our movements and activities.

CONGO REPORTS NEW EBOLA OUTBREAK

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Kinshasa (AFP)
DR CONGO REPORTS FRESH EBOLA OUTBREAK
DR Congo reported a fresh Ebola outbreak in its northwest on Monday, the latest health emergency for a country already fighting an epidemic of the deadly fever in the east as well as a surging number of coronavirus infections.
The 11th Ebola outbreak in the vast central African country’s history comes just weeks before it had hoped to declare the end of the 10th in the east.Health Minister Eteni Longondo said that “four people have already died” from Ebola in a district of the northwestern city of Mbandaka.
“The National Institute of Biomedical Research (INRB) has confirmed to me that samples from Mbandaka tested positive for Ebola,” Longondo told a press conference on Monday.
“We will send them the vaccine and medicine very quickly,” he said, adding that he planned to visit the site of the outbreak at the end of the week.
The capital of Equateur province, Mbandaka is a transport hub on the Congo River with a population of more than a million.
Equateur province was previously hit by an Ebola outbreak between May and July 2018, in which 33 people died and 21 recovered from the disease.
“This is a province that has already experienced the disease. They know how to respond. They started the response at the local level yesterday (Sunday),” Longondo said.
– The eastern epidemic –
The Ebola epidemic in the country’s east has killed 2,280 people since August 2018, and officials had hoped to be able to proclaim it over on June 25.
For it to be officially over, there have to be no new cases reported for 42 days — double the incubation period.
The eastern epidemic was just three days away from being declared over on April 10 when a new case was reported. 
Seven new cases were then recorded, including four deaths, two recoveries and one patient who fled, and the clock was restarted on May 14.
The World Health Organization also extended its Public Health Emergency of International Concern designation for the epidemic, which has mainly affected the North Kivu province.
Two experimental vaccines have been widely deployed to fight the outbreak, with more than 300,000 people vaccinated across the country.
However efforts to contain Ebola in the east have been hindered by attacks on health workers and conflicts in the country’s volatile region, long riven by militia killings and ethnic violence.
The eastern Ebola outbreak is the second worst in history, after an epidemic in 2014 killed about 11,000 people — mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
– Coronavirus, measles –
The newest Ebola outbreak is the 11th in the Democratic Republic of Congo since the highly contagious haemorrhagic fever was identified in 1976 in Equateur province in the country then known as Zaire.
The virus is passed on by contact with the blood, body fluids, secretions or organs of an infected or recently deceased person.
The death rate is typically high, ranging up to 90 percent in some outbreaks, according to the WHO.
The country is also fighting its own surging coronavirus outbreak, recording 3,195 infections — 2,896 in the capital Kinshasa — and 72 deaths, according to official figures released Monday.
“We are in an ascending period of the curve,” Longondo said, adding that it was still too “risky” to lift measures imposed on March 20 to stem the spread of COVID-19.
Under the measures, travel is banned between Kinshasa and the rest of the country.
No coronavirus cases have been reported in Equateur province. Mbandaka is 600 kilometres (370 miles) from Kinshasa, but the two cities are connected by the Congo river, with a trip down it taking about a week.
DR Congo’s coronavirus front man, virologist Jean-Jacques Muyembe, first identified Ebola in 1976 along with Belgian Peter Piot.
“I have devoted all my life and all my career to fighting Ebola,” Muyembe has said.
The country is also facing a measles outbreak which has killed more than 6,000 people since early last year, as well as recurring flare-ups of cholera and malaria.

RAPTURE CONTINUED:

 

Who Gets Raptured?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/who-gets-raptured/
QUESTION:    I have been reading your website everyday for about two months now. It was emailed to me as a link from a member of my Sunday school class. The first article I read was the Seven Major Prophetic signs of the Second Coming. After I read it I was hooked. I have read every article you have written on the rapture and prophecy related to current events. Thank you for your diligence and faithfulness to the Word.
I was looking through the FAQ section of (another site) and the author was fielding questions related to the rapture of children and anti pre-trib believers. He was suggesting that the children of unbelieving parents, as well as those who were against a pre-trib view of the rapture, would not be raptured.
For the record, I am a pre-trib believer who also believes that all children who have not yet reached the age of accountability will be raptured. I base this belief on Deuteronomy 1:39, “Moreover, your little ones who you said would become a prey, and your sons, who this day have no knowledge of good or evil, shall enter there, and I will give it to them and they shall possess it.”
I know this passage is not talking about the rapture, but to me it paints a picture of a God of grace who will judge each person according to his/her own choices and not the sins of the parents. If my application of this passage is correct it seems clear that God will most definitely rapture all children who have not yet reached the age of accountability. However, how do you reconcile this passage with other passages which talk about entire households being killed for the sins of the father (Achan, for example)?
Also, in reference to anti pre-trib believers not being raptured, I cannot find any support for this claim. Although I am confident based on your other articles that you agree with my view that they will most certainly be raptured with the rest of us, how would you answer someone who makes the claim that they will not be?
Thanks for you answers in advance. Again, I greatly appreciate your ministry.
ANSWER:    I’m with you on the rapture of children and “non pre-tribbers”. I guess my response to those who believe otherwise would be to challenge them to prove it by Scripture.
In one place (the other site) says, “The Word of God does not give us solid proof that Christians who oppose the pre-trib rapture will miss out on the blessed event.” I agree. The Rapture is not a “salvation issue” and so what you believe about it doesn’t effect your membership in the Church. When the Church disappears, all of its members will disappear with it.
The author also says that he doesn’t think that children of unbelievers will be raptured. But I’m not persuaded by his use of the Flood and Sodom examples to prove that children of unbelievers don’t escape judgment. Since non-believers think of pre-mature death as a great injustice, it’s natural to see the deaths of the Flood children in the context of judgment, but as believers we’re taught that death is a fast pass to heaven for the righteous. Viewed from that perspective, their deaths were an act of mercy.
Ask yourself this. How would the million or so children on earth at the time of the flood have benefited from being preserved through it? Who would have nursed them, fed and clothed them, raised them?
I think that all those children went to be with the Lord immediately, while Noah and his adult sons were preserved through the Flood as a model of Israel and Lot and his adult daughters escaped from Sodom ahead of time as a model of the Church. The Bible says that God doesn’t judge the righteous with the unrighteous (2 Peter 2:9) and children by definition are righteous. (Romans 7:9) For all we know, they could have been “raptured” at the moment those judgments came.
As far as other judgments are concerned, I believe that any child below the age of reason who died in Old Testament times went immediately to Paradise. Today they go to be with Jesus.
I believe that all children below the age of reason will be taken in the rapture irrespective of their parents’ spiritual condition.

Will All Children Be Raptured?

Https://Gracethrufaith.Com/Ask-A-Bible-Teacher/Will-All-Children-Be-Raptured/
QUESTION:    Please consider I Corinthians 7:14 in your discussion of this topic. It seems to indicate here that children belonging to unbelievers are unclean. Children who have a believing parent seem to have a different status than children who don’t. I realize that our salvation is based on what Jesus did, not on what our parents do and that each person is responsible for their own decision to serve or not serve God.
However in a discussion of “innocent” children before the age of accountability, I have this question: Are they saved from the wrath to come, the tribulation? In the Old Testament judgment came upon “unclean” nations and the children were not saved from destruction. (I think they were not judged and sent to hell upon death, but it doesn’t look like God saved them from judgment upon the earth)
I have been a children’s pastor for over twenty years and have worked diligently to bring young ones to the Lord, not knowing when the age of accountability might be for each of them. I can believe that the innocent will not see eternal judgment upon death, but I think that is a separate issue from the issue of being in the rapture. I have always believed that the innocent children of believing parents would go in the rapture, but that the children of unbelievers would probably have to go thru the tribulation. Any thoughts?
ANSWER:    You’re to be commended for your devotion to the salvation of children when sometimes even their believing parents seem willing to stand by and “let nature take its course.” I’ve always understood 1 Cor. 7:14 to mean that it takes at least one believer to make the marriage, and therefore the couple’s future children, legitimate in God’s sight.
Paul said that he had eternal life before reaching the age of accountability (Romans 7:9), and Jesus said that all children have guardian angels who regularly report to God (Matt. 18:10). I’ve taken this to mean that all children belong to God until they’ve developed the intellectual capacity to understand the spiritual consequences of their decisions. Just like our righteousness is imputed to us solely by faith, theirs is granted because of their intellectual immaturity.
I have trouble using Old Testament references to define the parameters of this issue because while there are a couple of types or models, there never was an Old Testament equivalent to the rapture. Noah and his family were preserved through a world-wide judgment, and Lot and his family were escorted out of the immediate vicinity of a local one, but there’s never been a mass departure from the planet by a group whose only qualification has been their faith. This is an event unique to the Church Age.

Raptured Children

Https://Gracethrufaith.Com/Ask-A-Bible-Teacher/Raptured-Children
QUESTION:    I am searching scripture looking for something that tells me that the children under the age of accountability will also be taken in the rapture. A friend asked me this and I told her that yes they would be removed at the rapture but could not back-up my statement with scripture that actually spells that out.
ANSWER:    The idea that all children under the age of accountability will be taken in the rapture comes from two places. The first is Matt. 18. Verse 3 says we have to change and become like little children in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. That means children are the model to which all believers have to conform in order to enter the kingdom. Verse 10 says that all children have an angel in constant contact with the Father. This leads us to conclude that all children belong to God.
The second place is Romans 7:9. Here, Paul wrote about being alive apart from the law, but then the commandment came, sin sprang to life and he died. Since he was still physically alive he had to be talking about spiritual death. So he was saying that before the age of accountability, he had eternal life. But as soon as he reached the age where he became accountable for his sins, he was scheduled for death and needed to find a way to regain eternal life.
Put it all together and it appears that all children are born with eternal life. They belong to God and and their sins are not counted against them. The way adults become like them so we can have eternal life is to be born again, because then we become a child of God again (John 1:12-13) and our sins are no longer counted against us (Romans 7:18-20). This makes all children and born again adults equally qualified for the rapture.
 

Will My Children Be Raptured with Me?

Https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/will-my-children-be-raptured-with-me/
QUESTION:    I was wondering if you could provide any Biblical basis to the idea children will be taken away during the rapture. I am saved, and have two sons, 6 and 7 years old. I truly believe we Christians will not be here to see the next presidential election due to the rapture occurring. I am concerned about my sons being left behind, and being unable to fend for themselves during the ensuing inevitable hell on Earth. I have heard others speak of a theory of children being taken to heaven along with adult believers, but I can not find anything about this in the Word. Any ideas? thank you in advance.
ANSWER:    According to my understanding, the Bible says that all children under the age of accountability belong to the Lord (Romans 7:9). This doesn’t mean that children are sinless, just that their sins are not held against them. The age of accountability is thought to be the time when they are intellectually mature enough to understand the concept of sin and its consequences, and can make an informed decision about accepting the pardon Jesus purchased for them. Until they reach that point God does not hold children accountable for their sins and considers them qualified for the Rapture.
Since this can differ from child to child, it’s up to you to determine when your children are capable of understanding.
The second place is Romans 7:9. Here, Paul wrote about being alive apart from the law, but then the commandment came, sin sprang to life and he died. Since he was still physically alive he had to be talking about spiritual death. So he was saying that before the age of accountability, he had eternal life. But as soon as he reached the age where he became accountable for his sins, he was scheduled for death and needed to find a way to regain eternal life.
Put it all together and it appears that all children are born with eternal life. They belong to God and and their sins are not counted against them. The way adults become like them so we can have eternal life is to be born again, because then we become a child of God again (John 1:12-13) and our sins are no longer counted against us (Romans 7:18-20). This makes all children and born again adults equally qualified for the rapture.
