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.

Please pray for

  Persecuted Christians

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

       "...this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ."  Philippians 1:9-10

 

"Please pray for God's people around the world!  (Some are mentioned in the news items below.) As in Europe,  Christian faith is  fading in America, while persecution is spreading in many other parts of the world. Countless Christians would rather face death than deny their beloved Lord!

 

Obama.  Obama Keeps Americans In Exile, But Welcomes Illegals: "President Barack Obama’s push to legalize millions of illegal immigrants is leaving many Americans’ families locked out of the United States. American engineer Jimmy Gugliotta and his Argentinian wife and children have been stuck in Chile for so long that he’s pleading for donations to buy food and airfares while the U.S. visa agency slowly processes the visa documents needed by his wife and children. “I was initially told the process would take 6 to 9 months and we had enough money to get us through until that time,” he wrote... "it has been 16 months and still no visa." See From Freedom to Servitude

 

Persecution.  Raising Children to be Soldiers of Allah: "...[the children's] mindset ... is nurtured with a message of hatred towards all non-Muslim communities... Islam is the only true religion, all other religions are false -- this is what they are taught from the beginning by the Madrasa teacher. They also chant nonstop the mantra that all nonbelievers (in Islam) are Kafirs and infidels fit to be destroyed by all true Muslims.' Dissent is not tolerated in the monolithic Islamic society of Bangladesh....

    "The extremist Islamic forces mostly target university teachers, engineers, writers and bloggers, one after another -- whoever is not in total accord with their faith, including anyone secular-minded." See Spiritual Warfare: Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!

 

Conspiracy?  Hillary has history of Iranian fundraising to explain: "As the U.S. presses for an agreement that could allow Iran to become a nuclear-weapons power, Hillary Clinton’s receipt of funds from the mullah-led Islamic regime and her hiring of a convicted Iranian-American multimillionaire with ties to Tehran as her national campaign finance director in 2008 could become an issue if she runs for president again....

     "U.S. government prosecutors have identified the foundation as an arm of the Iranian government. For her 2008 presidential campaign, Clinton hired Hassan Nemazee as her national campaign finance director, who was known for his efforts to normalize relations with the theocratic Iranian regime."  See Deceit, Delusion and the Destruction of America

Signs of the Times.  The U.S. has repeatedly betrayed Israel in Times of need: "The US exerted heavy pressure on Israel to give up the Sinai - for 'peace'. The Sinai today is a cauldron of jihadists that threaten both Israel and Egypt. The US made Israel give up Gaza - for 'peace'. Since then Gaza has relentlessly attacked Israel. Today it hosts the worst jihadist terror organizations, including ISIS.

     "The US tried for years to make Israel give up the Golan Heights. Israel almost did, except that the Arab Spring got in the way. What's on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights now is a mix of jihadi groups. The Iranian military is organizing some of those groups to attack Israel. The Heights protect Israeli communities. Without them the whole country would be even more vulnerable to terror.

    "Like a salesman without principles, the US government has for decades used the slogan of 'peace' to sell policies that are meant to unleash terror on Israel, and even the destruction of the country and the massacre of its Jewish inhabitants." See  The Muslim Brotherhood and the plots to exterminate Jews

 

Revolution?  'Huge surge' of 'unscreened' Muslims flooding U.S.: "Muslim immigration from dangerous nations is dramatically higher in recent years, and government assurances that immigrants are being properly screened is 'a farce'... In the last three years, he’s averaged 100,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations a year. That is very alarming. It’s more than we’re importing both from Central America and Mexico combined. ...

     "...this mass immigration from Muslim countries poses a serious national security threat,' said Sperry.... 'The stated reason for the influx in recent years is the rise in refugees from war-torn nations like Syria and Iraq.... We have had very strict restrictions on Syrian immigration.'

    "Since Syria’s become a failed state, Obama’s increased the number of refugees. By the time he leaves office, we will be importing over 10,000 Syrians into this country. This is a concern because Iraq and Syria are now controlled by the Islamic State.” "“At the top levels of the administration, DHS and so forth, they claim that these refugees are being vetted,” Sperry said. “But it’s a complete farce. We know that from testimony from the FBI officials who are in charge of that type of vetting process for terrorists coming in under visas and these refugee programs.” See Whose "rights" will rule?

 

Signs of the Times. Obama Declares War on Israel: "Now, at long last, the Obama Administration's increased hostility toward Israel is being welcomed in many Arab and Islamic capitals. They are overjoyed to see that after failing the Arabs and Muslims for the past six years, Obama seems finally to be moving in the 'right' direction.

     "Terrorist groups such as Hamas, Hizb'Allah, Al-Qaeda, and Islamic Jihad are also expressing satisfaction with what they see as Obama's 'declaration of war' against Israel. Palestinian Authority [PA] officials in the West Bank [sic] are also celebrating over the fact that Israel has become the number one enemy of the Obama Administration."

 

Obama.  Obama Snubs NATO Chief as Crisis Rages: "President Barack Obama has yet to meet with the new head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and won't see Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg this week, even though he is in Washington for three days. Stoltenberg’s office requested a meeting with Obama well in advance of the visit, but never heard anything from the White House.... 'The leaders of almost all the other 28 NATO member countries have made time for Stoltenberg since he took over the world's largest military alliance in October."

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."―john Adams

Climate.  Obama’s Alarmist “Climate” Report Debunked by Scientists: "...it took less than two weeks for experts to go through the 840-page White House document and tear its outlandish claims to shreds — often using United Nations reports and the federal government’s own data to do so, issuing a blistering critique of the 'nonsense' and 'deception' put forward by the administration.

     "Now, with the predicted surge in Earth's temperatures still on 'pause' after almost 18 years, the Obama administration and its coterie of global-warming theorists are being blasted and ridiculed for fear-mongering, deception, and more. In a powerful rebuttal to the White House 'National Climate Assessment,' a coalition of 15 respected scientists, climatologists, and other experts seized upon many of the more absurd claims to debunk the Obama report..."

Sexual Immorality. Second Graders Given ‘Sex Kits’ on Field Trip: “'Hygiene' bags meant for homeless and at-risk youth made it into the hands of a second-grade classroom. While the organization says it was a mistake, this isn’t the first time young children have been exposed to methods and behavior that isn’t exactly age appropriate. This type of sex-ed curriculum was suggested as mandatory by the United Nations in 2009." See Moral Depravity

 

Religion - not Christianity!  New Trend: ‘Radically Inclusive’ Churches That Embrace All Religions And All Lifestyles: "All over America, 'radically inclusive' churches... are starting to pop up. Church services that incorporate elements of Hinduism, Islam, native American religions and even Wicca are becoming increasingly common. And even if you don’t believe anything at all, that is okay with these churches too.

     "In fact, as you will see below, one Presbyterian minister in Oregon is even inviting people to 'bring their own god' to church. But if these churches don’t really stand for anything at all, what is their purpose? And what does the popularity of these churches say about the future of religion in America?

     "One such church that has gotten quite a bit of attention lately is led by D.E. Paulk. The son of Earl Paulk, he was once considered to be the 'heir apparent' at one of the largest megachurches in America. But these days he leads worship at a church that recognizes 'all gods and prophets, including Mohammed..." See UNESCO's Declaration on the Role of Religion in a Culture of Peace

 

Mind Control. Why Suddenly, Everyone Cares about Common Core: "Consider the wrath of parents who can’t explain Common Core math homework to their kids. Consider also the wrath of parents who are watching the copyrighted standards drive both curriculum and testing in 40+ states. 'Add in a strong dose of social media opposition from both left-leaning and right-leaning folks and teachers who realize they’re losing control of their classrooms once again. 'The energy and momentum around the issue has become impossible for political candidates to ignore and opposition to it can be a potent weapon—especially if your opponent supports it." See Brainwashing and 'Education Reform'

"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
