Most of the news items below illustrate the challenges Christians will face in a world that's growing increasingly hostile to Biblical values. We hope the information will encourage you to stand firm in God's Truth -- no matter how great the pressure to compromise.

God's Word  ~  Trusting God  ~  Topical Scripture List  ~  Names of God  ~  Chronologies

"...let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus... who for the joy set before Him endured the cross."     

Hebrews 12:1-2      

"Pray for God's people around the world! The sobering links below show the rapid transformation of our nation and its values. As in Europe,  Christian faith is  fading fast and God's Word is banned from most of our public schools. Jews and Christians are persecuted in many parts of the world. But in the midst of these changes, our God still reigns! "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord!" As the spiritual war intensifies, may He draw us ever closer to Himself!

 

Obama's  unwanted soldiers.  Americans At Risk: Obama Is Destroying America’s Ability to Win World War III: "...the nation’s undying gratitude seems to be evaporating. Since Obama has become the President, the military has suffered through several years of staggering cuts in funding and tens of thousands of military personnel have been shown the door. Many of these cuts are being visited upon military personnel who were near retirement. ... Obama’s mission with regard to our military is to dismantle and destroy its fighting effectiveness, bit by bit." See Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

 

Obama's anti-semitism. President Obama and 'Naked, Blind Anti-Semitism': "Last week, pro-Palestinian protestors disrupted a New York City Council meeting yelling slogans and brandishing a Palestinian flag. The demonstration... occurred as council members were voting on a resolution commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

     "...Councilman David Greenfield observed that every Middle East country -- except Israel -- is not democratic and persecutes people of other faiths.... 'What you saw here today was naked, blind anti-Semitism.'” See Western Europe will soon be 'Judenrein'

 

War & Terror. Hamas ‘War Crimes Camp’ Graduates Trains 17,000 Teens for Terror: "Hamas, a member of the Palestinian Unity Government, has published photo proof of the terrorist organization committing war crimes by training thousands of teenagers in 'military youth camps.' The Hamas version of the Boy Scouts... preaches sermons of hate against Israel and for the 'love of death.'"

 

Spiritual Warfare.  Norway joins club of dictatorships: "Norwegian Pegida leader Max Hermansen (54) has lost his job part time. Hermansen, who is a teacher in high school and adult education – must end his work as a teacher because he has extreme opinions [critical of Islam]....

     [Author's comment:] "Norway has for two decades been the most committed sponsor of Islamic terrorism in the Western hemisphere. Both left-center and center-right governments have given tens of millions of USD annually to the PLO and the Hamas."

 

Muslim Brotherhood.  The Muslim Brotherhood Inquiry: What's Happening? "The British government will publish only the 'principal findings' of an inquiry commissioned by the British government into the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in Britain. ...Brotherhood organizations in the UK have, nevertheless, long enjoyed the support of government ministers and taxpayers' money.... London, it seems, has long been an important hub for the Muslim Brotherhood. Over the past 50 years, Brotherhood members have established dozens of Muslim Brotherhood front organizations, including lobby groups, charities, think tanks, television channels and interfaith groups."

 

Obama's Religion?  Islam: Antithetical to Religious Freedom: "Is Obama, who was raised a Muslim, a committed Muslim or a Christian convert? A Harris Poll conducted in March of 2010, revealed that fully 57% of all Republicans and 32% of Americans overall believe that Obama is a Muslim...

    "It is certainly confounding that Obama would recite the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic during a New York Times interview in 2007 and call it the 'prettiest sound on earth.' In an infamous September 2008 interview... George Stephanopoulos corrected Obama's ostensible slip of the tongue when the candidate stated, 'John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith.'

     "... following the election, it was quite puzzling to hear the leader of a Judeo-Christian nation refer to the 'holy' Koran, publicly proclaim civilization's debt to Islam, and avow that 'America is not and never will be at war with Islam.'"

 

Signs of the Times.  Iran Targets Netanyahu Children for Assassination: "Iran is encouraging its terror allies to pursue the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s children by publishing personal information about them, including photographs of the kids lined up in crosshairs, and declaring, “We must await the hunt of Hezbollah.”

 

Russia.  Russia's Plans for Arctic Supremacy: "...Moscow is seeking to exploit ... the Arctic Circle. Melting ice has opened up new transit routes and revealed previously inaccessible oil and mineral deposits. Facing a year of harsh economic constraints, securing exploitable energy reserves remains a top priority for Moscow. The planned militarization of the Arctic is already underway."

 

Terrorism or attempted Genocide?  The Dilemma of Islamic Terrorism: "Since the 9/11 attack on New York and the Pentagon in 2001, there have been close to 25,000 terrorist attacks worldwide, all of which were perpetrated in the name of Islam. That is about 5 terrorist attacks every day. So far two million people have been killed and a similar number are maimed and injured....Yet something is not changing."

 

Revolution.  The Coming of a Revolution: Are We Reliving 1939?  "Last week we talked about an Egyptian newspaper article claiming that President Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. We pointed out that $8,000,000,000 was given to the Muslim Brotherhood, not to the Egyptian government. The source for the article was none other than Khairat el-Shater, the former number two leader in the Muslim Brotherhood.... 'The article claims that the Obama Administration tried to make a deal with the new Egyptian government to protect the Muslim Brotherhood and they said no. The Egyptian government said that they were more concerned about the threat that the MB is to their nation than the approval of the US government."

 

Faith. As the world descends into turmoil, God commands Bible believers to "Fear not!": "There is no doubt that the events happening in the world today are scary.... But we who belong to the Lord must come to Him with our fears, anxious thoughts and troubles. He says 'Fear Not' throughout His Word.

    "The Islamic terrorists love to instill fear in people all over the world.... I wish I felt that things were going to get better. I think that things will probably get worse. 'What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.” – Psalm 56:3-4

 

Globalism. Bill Gates Calls for ‘Global Government’: "Billionaire Bill Gates called for 'a kind of global government' this week, arguing that the creation of such a system would be needed to combat major issues such as 'climate change.'" The Emerging New World Order

 

Mocking God's Word!  Presbyterian Church and Arab Palestinian Group rewriting the Bible to remove references to Israel: "This new version blatantly changes God’s Word. Any mention of Israel – gone. ... The movement which has brought the world a NEW bible, is called Palestinian Liberation Theology. At its heart is hatred for the Jewish people and for Israel. Of course, keeping in line with this hatred, the leaders of this satanic movement have changed Jesus (Yeshua) from being Jewish to being a Palestinian Arab."  See Signs of the times

 

Mind Control.  Choose to refuse: Say 'NO" to [Common Core] TESTING: "Moms and dads, you have the inherent right and responsibility to protect your children. You can choose to refuse the top-down Common Core racket of costly standardized tests of dubious academic value, reliability and validity.... Are you alarmed by the intrusive data-sharing and data-mining enabled by assessment-driven special interests? Are you opposed to the usurpation of local control by corporate testing giants and federal lobbyists? You are not alone!" See The UN Plan for Your Mental Health

 

Muslim Brotherhood.  Muslim Brotherhood Starts A Political Party Out Of Chicago: "According to the Center for Security Policy, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) has begun building the framework for a political party. USCMO’s party will also be the first political party in the U.S. to be openly connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.

     "From what is reported by sources, this party arose right after Sabri Samirah, a Jordanian Brotherhood member, was allowed into the U.S. by President Barack Obama back in 2014 following an 11-year ban. He immediately galvanized Muslims to form the party, which is now recognized as the UMMA, an offset of the United Muslim Americans Association (UMAA)." See The Muslim Brotherhood & the Plots to Rule an Islamic World 

 

Unconstitutional Law. Obama’s Blasphemy Law…to Protect Islam: "SAY GOODBYE TO FREE SPEECH. The Obama administration pushed for the global 'Anti-Blasphemy' laws (UN Resolution 16/18) which seeks to limit free speech and to outlaw any scrutiny of Islam. The Obama administration cooperated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a confederacy of 56 Muslim states, whose real agenda is to criminalize criticisms of Islam and to impose Sharia law." See Part 1: The Power and Perversions of Law

 

Conspiracy.  OBAMA campaign team arrives in Israel to defeat Netanyahu in march Elections: Just days after the Obama White House accused House Speaker John Boehner of 'breaking protocol' by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress, a team of up to five Obama campaign operatives has reportedly arrived in Israel to lead a campaign to defeat the Israeli Prime Minister in upcoming national elections scheduled for March 17.

     "The anti-Netanyahu, left wing Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports a group called “One Voice,” reportedly funded by American donors, is paying for the Obama campaign team."  Part 3: From Freedom to Servitude

 

Government Control.  UK Government Announces Plan to Remotely Control Vehicles: "The UK government today announced a plan to remotely control vehicles on roads using wi-fi technology in order to reduce traffic and offset global warming.... However, buried in the report is a detail that will horrify many libertarians and privacy advocates. The state plans to achieve this new high-tech solution by fitting sensors in all cars that would wirelessly send information to a 'central traffic control system'. ...In other words, in the name of reducing traffic and helping the environment, the government could at any time seize control of your vehicle against your will." See Community Policing,

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

When enemy forces threatened to attack God's people, [King] Jehoshaphat simply turned His eyes and heart to His faithful Lord and expressed his faith:

“O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?
     ...we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU." 2 Chronicles 20:6, 12
