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[a] 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.
‘China threatening US preeminence’: America could make Chinese press register as foreign agents
PROPHETIC NEWS ARTICLES:
MIDDLE EAST WAR LOOMING THE BUILD UP TO PSALM 83 – ISAIAH 17 AND GOG OF MAGOG WARS EZEKIEL 38:
New information is surfacing about a Japanese submarine military exercise in the South China Sea. The Maritime Self-Defense Force (MSDF) said in a rare statement on Monday that one submarine and three other vessels performed aggressive maneuvers to deter China’s militarization of the region.
“Japan has been performing submarine exercises in the South China Sea since 15 years ago. We did so last year and the year before that,” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on a TV program on Monday. “The purpose of the Self-Defense Force drills is to improve their skill. It is not intended for specific countries.”
According to the Nikkei Asian Review, this is the first public announcement that the MSDF revealed military exercises by a submarine in the region. Last Thursday, the Hiroshima-based submarine Kuroshio joined helicopter carrier Kaga and two other missile destroyers for maneuvers.
During the exercise, destroyers worked with helicopters to hunt for the submarine using sonars, while the Kuroshio pursued the carrier as it lurked beneath the waters. What is notable, however, is that the exercises took place within China’s self-declared maritime claim known as the Nine-Dash Line, which includes most of the South China Sea.
“It’s part of a strategic message that Japan would like to send to China and the countries in the region,” said Narushige Michishita, a professor specializing in international security at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies in Tokyo. “It’s a demonstration of Japan’s will to maintain a balance of power.” Michishita called it “very significant” that Tokyo would even send anti-submarine warfare capability because China regularly operates nuclear-powered submarines in the area.
After the exercise, the Japanese sub made a port call to Cam Ranh Bay Monday to visit their Vietnamese friends. The move was seen as a key indication as Vietnam also opposes China’s militarization in the nearby waters. The exercise concluded just after the British and French conducted freedom of navigation tours in the South China Sea, a move that the US Navy carries out on a regular basis.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, was questioned about the Japanese exercise at a recent press briefing, did not directly criticize Tokyo but said countries outside the South China Sea region “should act cautiously and avoid harming regional peace and stability,” said The Wall Street Journal.
Geng said the environment in the South China Sea was slightly improving and China was committed to working with Southeast Asian countries to resolve disputed economic zones.
However, the Japanese exercise could complicate the recent improvement in relations between Tokyo and Beijing, which developed after the Trump administration slapped both countries with tariffs.
Meanwhile, the fate of the world seems to be on a rocky path, and the reason why Japan is preparing for war in the South China Sea may be simply because it views Sino-US relations as nearing a point of no return as a result of the escalation from the trade ongoing war.
IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis addressed the downing of the Russian plane in Syria on Tuesday after Moscow accused Israel of a hostile provocation and threatened to respond.
”Israel expresses its regret over the death of the crew members of the Russian plane that was downed tonight due to Syrian anti-aircraft fire,” read the statement released by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.
“Israel holds the Assad regime, whose military shot down the Russian plane fully responsible for this incident. Israel also holds Iran and the Hezbollah terror organization accountable for this unfortunate incident.”
Manelis confirmed that the IDF had struck a Syrian military facility from which systems to manufacture accurate and lethal weapons were about to be transferred on behalf of Iran to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
“These weapons were meant to attack Israel and posed an intolerable threat against it,” he said on a call with reporters on Tuesday.
According to the preliminary investigation launched by the Israeli Air Force, the Russian Ilyushin military plane was not within the area of operation of Israeli jets, and when it was struck all Israeli jets which took part in the operation had already returned to Israeli territory.
“The Syrian anti-aircraft batteries fired indiscriminately and from what we understand, did not bother to ensure that no Russian planes were in the air,” Manelis said, adding that “the extensive and inaccurate Syrian anti-aircraft missile fire cause the Russian plane to be hit.”
An official from Russia’s Defense Ministry was quoted by TASS News that the plane went off the radar while four Israeli F-16 fighter jets attacked targets in the Syrian province of Latakia.
Moscow accused Israel Tuesday morning of using the IL-20 as cover to carry out the strikes and said Israel warned them of the operation only one minute before.
”As a result of the irresponsible actions of the Israeli military, 15 Russian service personnel perished,” TASS news agency quoted Russian defense ministry spokesperson Igor Konashenkov as saying. “This absolutely does not correspond to the spirit of Russian-Israeli partnership. We reserve the right to take commensurate measures in response.”
Earlier on Tuesday the Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu spoke with Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman and Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on social media that the Israeli ambassador had been called into her ministry in connection with what had happened near Syria.
Manelis denied the reports, saying that the de-conflication mechanism implemented with Russia over Syria to coordinate their actions in order avoid accidental clashes in Syrian airspace “was in use tonight like it has been in use in the past.”
Israel said that it will share all relevant information with the Russian government to review the incident and to confirm the facts of the inquiry.
Israel rarely comments on foreign reports of military activity in Syria but has publicly admitted to having struck over 200 targets in Syria over the past year and a half.
According to the IDF, the strikes which mainly targeted advanced weapons systems and infrastructure belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps were aimed at preventing Iranian entrenchment in Syria.
President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that the shooting down of a Russian military plane near Syria was the result of a chain of tragic and chance circumstances.
Putin’s comments appeared to somewhat soften Russia’s criticism of Israel, though he said Russia still needed to look into what happened.
Speaking beside Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban following talks in Moscow, Putin said Russia’s response to the incident would aim at securing the safety of Russian service people in Syria.
A strong showing by the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats in the Swedish elections on September 9 drained away so many votes from the establishment parties that the two main parliamentary blocs were left virtually tied and far short of a governing majority.
The Sweden Democrats won 17.5% of the vote and emerged as the third-largest party in the country, according to the official election results released on September 16. The result, a 4.6% improvement on the 12.9% it won in 2014, placed the Sweden Democrats into a situation of holding the balance of power in the next parliament.
Incumbent Prime Minister Stefan Löfven’s center-left Social Democrats came in first, with 28.3% of the vote — the party’s worst result in more than 100 years. The center-right Moderate party came in second, with 19.8% of the vote, a 3.5% drop from 2014.
With eight political parties in the Swedish Parliament, the establishment parties traditionally have organized themselves into two rival parliamentary blocs: On the left, the Social Democrats and their allies garnered 40.7% of the vote. On the right, the Moderates and their allies won 40.3% of the vote.
Although the Sweden Democrats are now in a position to play kingmaker in Parliament, the mainstream blocs have vowed not to cooperate with them because of their “nationalist” positions on immigration and the European Union.
Sweden, with a largely homogenous population of around 10 million people, received nearly 500,000 asylum seekers from Africa, Asia and the Middle East since 2010. The arrival of so many overwhelmingly male migrants from different cultural and religious backgrounds has created massive social upheaval, including a surge in sexual assaults and gang violence in cities and towns across Sweden.
The Sweden Democrats campaigned on a promise to curb immigration, restrict family reunifications, speed up deportations and crack down on migrant crime. Party leader Jimmie Åkesson also warned that mass migration poses an existential threat to Sweden’s social welfare system. With tens of thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands, of migrants receiving welfare payments without having made any contributions, the current welfare system seems destined to collapse, he said.
Some observers argued that the Social Democrats managed to eke out a success in the 2018 election only by adopting some of the immigration proposals advocated by the Sweden Democrats. In May 2018, for example, Prime Minister Löfven, in an effort to stanch the bleeding of votes, announced a plan to tighten asylum rules, improve border controls and cut welfare benefits for migrants whose asylum applications have been rejected.
The scale of the challenge facing Sweden is daunting. A recent study by the Pew Research Center estimated that even if all immigration were immediately to stop, the proportion of Muslims in Sweden would still rise to more than 11% of the overall population by 2050. A medium migration scenario places Sweden’s Muslim population at 20.5% in 30 years; a high migration scenario places the Muslim population at 30.6%.
The general belief among average citizens is that the purpose of central banks is to help the economy by fighting inflation and mitigating financial crisis. It’s a fairy tale that politicians like to encourage. If there were any truth to it, however, where was the Federal Reserve during the crisis of 2007? Rather than helping, it was widening the crisis with its easy money policies.
While central banks are not a government entity, their primary purpose is to create money for the benefit of the government.
By mindlessly printing fiat currency, central banks create a shaky illusion of financial stability. In reality, each central bank is a monopoly that controls the production of distribution of currency and interest rates. Most importantly, it also controls gold reserves. While paper currency allegedly has the backing of the government, it is the central bank that controls the value of the currency at any specific time.
The first central bank, the Central Bank of England, was created in the 17th century as a scheme to enable the king to pay off his debts. As each country established its own central bank, it has been used by its government as a personal bank account.
With the government’s permission, central banks print money for the use of commercial banks to lend out at a specified rate of interest. Together, they work at inflating the money supply through a system called fractional-reserve banking.
Commercial banks are required to keep a fraction of their money in reserve. For example, if someone deposits $1,000, the bank has to keep 10 percent in its vaults. That $100 cannot be lent out. It can only lend out $900, thereby creating two separate claims on those funds: the original deposit of $1,000 and the subsequent borrower of the $900. The supply of money in circulation has been artificially increased to $1,900. That is only one of the ways central banks manipulate the fiat money supply.
This inflated money supply encourages consumers to spend and accumulate increasing debt which they will eventually find difficult to pay off, especially among those with a lesser income. As fiat money is circulated into an economy, the price of goods being purchased affects first the lower-income population and trickled slowing upward. The wealthier will retain spendable currency far longer than those at the bottom of the economic rung. As prices rise, the wealthy can still afford to purchase needed goods. The poorer segment of the population will end up being able to purchase far less than before. By this means, the central banks help create and maintain a separate class system.
During the financial crisis of 2007/8, central banks printed money to inflate the balance sheets of commercial banks at low-interest rates.
The banks benefitted, while the increase in fiat money drove up consumer prices. At the same time, it increased the value of assets, such as stocks and real estate. These fortunate enough to hold stocks and real estate saw an increase in their assets. Those who attempted to purchase real estate or housing found the price out of their reach as their purchasing power diminished.
Central banks have never existed for the greater good. Their very purpose is to benefit the elite and those in power. Wealth inequality is a fact of life; however, the policies of central banks can exacerbate those inequities. The simple fact is people would be better off without the monetary manipulations of the central banks. The schemes of the central merely widen any income gap instead of closing it.
At this time, central banks have free reign over the economy. They can, in effect, do whatever they want. This unlimited power could be checked with the reinstitution of the gold standard, which would place the value of the currency at market value instead of artificial central bank whim. To quote economist Murray Rothbard, “[A]bolish the Federal Reserve System, and return to the gold standard, to a monetary system where a market-produced metal, such as gold, serves as the standard money, and not paper tickets printed by the Federal Reserve.”
President Trump’s Federal Reserve appointees are continuing the mistakes of the past. While all are cheering the economic boom, everyone is averting their eyes from the burgeoning debts that may soon come crashing down. And if it does come crashing, it will create a global chaos the world has not previously experienced.
Based on the history of how China treats its dissidents, Google could soon be complicit in the state-sponsored torture and murder of people for their political and religous views.
Last week, it was reported that a senior scientist at Google, Jack Poulson did the right thing and resigned from his high-paying job over his employer’s decision to support censorship in China. “I am forced to resign in order to avoid contributing to, or profiting from, the erosion of protection for dissidents,”he said.
The senior scientist blew the whistle last month after the Intercept revealed through leaked documents that the internet behemoth planned to launch a censored version of its search engine in Chine that will blacklist websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest.
After unsuccessfully pleading with his bosses to stop the implementation of this censorship platform Google is creating, Poulson tendered his resignation.
He felt it was his “ethical responsibility to resign in protest of the forfeiture of our public human rights commitments,”he said.
The insidious nature of supporting such tyrannical censorship speaks for itself. However, Google apparently couldn’t care less about the implications and are reportedly moving forward with the initiative anyway.
As the Intercept reports:
The project – code-named Dragonfly – has been underway since spring of last year, and accelerated following a December 2017 meeting between Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai and a top Chinese government official, according to internal Google documents and people familiar with the plans.
Teams of programmers and engineers at Google have created a custom Android app, different versions of which have been named “Maotai” and “Longfei.” The app has already been demonstrated to the Chinese government; the finalized version could be launched in the next six to nine months, pending approval from Chinese officials.
The planned move represents a dramatic shift in Google’s policy on China and will mark the first time in almost a decade that the internet giant has operated its search engine in the country.
Through their censorship tactics, Google is helping to enable one of the most tyrannical and oppressive regimes on the planet.
“This has very serious implications not just for China, but for all of us, for freedom of information and internet freedom,” Patrick Poon, a Hong Kong-based researcher with human rights group Amnesty International, told The Intercept. “It will set a terrible precedent for many other companies who are still trying to do business in China while maintaining the principles of not succumbing to China’s censorship. The biggest search engine in the world obeying the censorship in China is a victory for the Chinese government – it sends a signal that nobody will bother to challenge the censorship any more.”
According to the leak, Google’s Chinese search app will automatically identify and filter websites blocked by the Great Firewall. When a person carries out a search, banned websites will be removed from the first page of results, and a disclaimer will be displayed stating that “some results may have been removed due to statutory requirements.” Examples cited in the documents of websites that will be subject to the censorship include those of British news broadcaster BBC and the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.
What’s more, Google will likely be required to turn over these blocked results to the Chinese government, in turn becoming a policing arm of the tyrannical state.
“It has been a requirement that companies operating in China must be prepared to police their users and turn over user data to security agencies upon request,” said Ron Deibert, director of Citizen Lab, an internet research group based at the University of Toronto, according to the Intercept. “We have also found overall that internet censorship [in China] is evolving towards less transparency, with less notification to users when messages are censored or removed across all platforms.”
This move by Google to not only support censorship, but participate in the oppression of more than a billion people should not be taken lightly. The internet giant is actively working with a corrupt and murderous government to allow that government to continue its corruption and murder—unchecked and under cover.
Based on the history of how China treats its dissidents, Google could soon be complicit in the murder of people for their political views. Let that sink it.
While this censorship by Google may be currently reserved for China, it’s only a matter of time before the tyrants in America seek to adopt it here—in the name of “national security,” no doubt.
While many Americans may be oblivious to the horrific nature of the Chinese surveillance and police state, the reality is that it exists and is getting worse. In fact, the level of tyranny has become so problematic that even mainstream media is occasionally forced to report on it. Below is a clip from a Wall Street Journal report on what they called the “total surveillance state” in the country.
ISRAEL SHUTS DOWN AND GOES SILENT AS JEWS CELEBRATE HOLIEST DAY OF THE YEAR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT
All flights in and out of Ben Gurion airport ceased at 1:35 p.m.. The airport will reopen Wednesday night with arrivals starting at 9:30 p.m., while departures will resume at 11:30 p.m. Public transport also gradually halted with buses and trains stopping their routes until after the fast day. As sundown approached, all local radio and television broadcasts gradually fell silent.
Israel shut down on Tuesday evening for Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement and the holiest day of the Jewish calendar.
How well I remember the time where, shortly after I got saved, when I first held a copy of the Jerusalem Post in my hands. I found it at an international news stand in Princeton, NJ, and it may sound silly to you but I actually trembled a little bit holding that paper. Why? Because long before I became a Christian, God broke my heart for Israel and the Jewish people after I watched raw WWII newsreel footage in eighth grade on the concentration camps in Hitler’s Germany. I sat there as a 14 year old boy, my face stained with tears, unable to comprehend what I was watching on the screen. Holding a copy of the Jerusalem Post in my hands was not like holding any other newspaper. I felt connected to the only place on this earth that God called His Land, and to the only people on earth who are called His chosen people.
“Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.” Leviticus 23:27,28 (KJV)
So today on this highest holy day for Jews both in Israel and around the world, we here at NTEB are joining you in prayer to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that the forgiveness you seek will be found by you in the LORD as you fast and atone individually and as a nation. The words of the prophet Jeremiah resound as true and powerfully today as they did when first spoken thousands of years ago, and offer hope to Jew and gentile alike.
Am Yisrael Chai.
“Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you.” Jeremiah 26:13 (KJV)
FROM TIMES OF ISRAEL: All flights in and out of Ben Gurion airport ceased at 1:35 p.m.. The airport will reopen Wednesday night with arrivals starting at 9:30 p.m., while departures will resume at 11:30 p.m. Public transport also gradually halted with buses and trains stopping their routes until after the fast day. As sundown approached, all local radio and television broadcasts gradually fell silent.
Yom Kippur, which began at Tuesday at sundown and ends Wednesday night, is marked with a 25-hour fast and intense prayer by religious Jews, while more secular Israelis often use the day to ride bicycles on the country’s deserted highways. Security and rescue services, however, remain on high alert.
For the Magen David Adom Rescue service, Yom Kippur is one of the busiest days of the year with hundreds of extra medics, paramedics, ambulances and volunteers deployed across the country.
Most injuries over Yom Kippur come from accidents on the roads as tens of thousands of children and teens take advantage of the deserted streets to ride their bicycles. Other common Yom Kippur injuries are caused by parents leaving children unattended outside synagogues and, of course, dehydration and complications from fasting.
Hospitals were working with limited emergency medical crews only. Weather was forecast to be warm and sunny Wednesday with a high of 28°C (82°F) forecast for Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, increasing that chances for dehydration for people fasting.
Meanwhile, the IDF sealed off the West Bank for 48 hours starting at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday. The Erez border crossing into Gaza has also been shuttered amid rising border tensions with the Palestinian enclave.
The army routinely seals off the West Bank and Gaza on Jewish holidays, and did so last week for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said additional police units were deployed to the Old City for the holiday, which falls a day ahead of the Shiite Muslim holy day of Ashura. Police arrested five Muslim activists on the Temple Mount on Tuesday and accused them of trying to obstruct a group of Jewish visitors touring the flash point Jerusalem holy site. READ MORE
