"The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies." Psalm 18:2-3

         "Please pray for Christians around the world who face persecution for their faith!


Education?  Common Core College and Career Standards: Big Fraud: "Common Core is a gigantic fraud! Does calling a Ford a 'Cadillac' make it a Cadillac? Common Core’s advocates claim the Standards are College and Career Ready. The Common Core Standards end in the middle of Algebra 2 with no Calculus or Trigonometry classes. Incoming freshmen students whose last high school math course was Algebra 2 have less than a 40% chance of earning any kind of four- year college degree. Common Core is anything but College Ready!"

Signs of the Times.  America Yawns as Jews Die: " becomes a clear that Israel is experiencing a wave of terror unseen since the dark days of the second intifada over a decade ago. There have been stabbing incidents on the streets of Jerusalem and even now in other parts of the country. Snipers, gasoline bombs, and gangs armed with lethal rocks are assaulting Jews driving on the roads in the West Bank.

    "But as the toll of casualties rises, the reaction from the U.S. government and the international media is cool, detached indifference. The best the State Department can do in reaction to the attacks is to issue a lukewarm denial that it will abandon Israel at the United Nations." See Western Europe will soon be 'Judenrein'  (Old but relevant)


Tyranny. A New Global Police to Fight “Violent Extremism” in the U.S.? "The Obama administration plans to create a global police force that counters 'violent extremism' in the United States and elsewhere. The problem is that in Obama-speak 'violent extremism' refers not only to jihadists wishing to harm Americans but also to conservatives and Tea Party activists. Just ask all the law-abiding right-of-center nonprofit groups targeted by Lois Lerner’s IRS during the Obama presidency.

    "America’s chief executive, who speaks in hushed and reverent tones when discussing the Muslim faith, said the U.S. will use 'all of our tools' to fight Islamic State terrorists." See ISIS fabricated by U.S., former CIA contractor says


Spritual Warfare:  Obama Paints Border Patrol with Rainbow Colors: "Border Patrol agents and others operating under the umbrella of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) must now consider not only the sex of the criminal they are detaining, but the “gender identity” of the individual and how they feel and identify. The terms 'illegal alien' or even 'illegal immigrant' do not appear at all in a new 31-page instruction document." See Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!


Islam replacing Christianity?  World’s First Lesbian Bishop Calls for Church to Remove Crosses, to Install Muslim Prayer Space: "The Bishop of Stockholm has proposed a church in her diocese remove all signs of the cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers. Eva Brunne, who was made the world’s first openly lesbian bishop by the church of Sweden in 2009... made the suggestion to make those of other faiths more welcome.

     "'Calling Muslim guests to the church 'angels', the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith." See Heresy in high places


Occult.  Girl 'possessed by Satan' inside video game: "An 18-year-old woman in Lima, Peru, reportedly became possessed by a demon – convulsing, foaming at the mouth and even trying to kill herself – after playing a version of a Ouija board game on her phone Saturday. 'In a video posted by the London Express, Patricia Quispe can be seen thrashing and crying out as medics hold her down on a table. Medical experts said she exhibited abnormal strength, and it took them more than 30 minutes to restrain her." See Popular Occultism


Faith.  Bibles for soldiers: Finding comfort in difficult times: "During World War I, the thousands to American soldiers heading to France and Belgium were given pocket Bibles with the forward written by President Woodrow Wilson in 1917: 'The Bible is the Word of Life. I beg that you will read it ... – not little snatches here and there... and the more you read the more it will become plain to you what things are worth while and what are not, what things make men happy, – loyalty, right dealing, speaking the truth, readiness to give everything for what they think their duty, and, most of all, the wish that they may have the approval of the Christ, who gave everything for them– (signed) Woodrow Wilson.” See  Jesus, our Shepherd


Hope.  Donald Trump, Ben Carson surge when media attacks: "It is no accident that Dr. Ben Carson is enjoying one of his biggest lifts in the polls as the media savages him for views that offended them. the latest poll of the Republican nomination, Carson surged into a lead. The most recent IBD/TIPP poll found Carson leading the GOP field with 24 percent.... Carson, it is important to note, did not say that Muslims should be legally barred from the White House. He simply said that he wouldn’t support a Muslim candidate, at this time, for President. It is a distinction with a very big difference." See Taking a Stand


Corruption. The Bishop of Stockholm has proposed a church in her diocese remove all signs of the cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers: "Eva Brunne, who was made the world’s first openly lesbian bishop by the church of Sweden in 2009... made the suggestion to make those of other faiths more welcome....Calling Muslim guests to the church 'angels', the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith. Rather, to do any less would make one 'stingy towards people of other faiths.'”


Environment.  Top U.S. physicist claims global warming is a “scam”: "Harold Warren Lewis, a respected physicist who had previously advised both the U.S. Government and the Pentagon on various matters including missile defense and nuclear winter, shocked his peers when he disseminated his letter of resignation from the American Physical Society. ... Lewis revealed that global warming was 'the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud' he has even seen in his career.

     "Ronald D. Rowlands: 'Climate Change is not caused by man or carbon , there has always been Climate Change part of being in the Solar System. Why has the Lie grown so big?" See Green Lies and Amazing Truths


Islam. Obama Throws Christian Refugees to Lions: "Why are Christian minorities, who are the most to suffer from the chaos engulfing the Middle East, the least wanted in the United States? ... The fate of those Iraqi Christians who had fled from the Islamic State only to be incarcerated in the United States has finally been decided by the Obama administration: they are to be thrown back to the lions, where they will likely be persecuted, if not slaughtered, like so many Iraqi Christians before them." See Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!


Moral Depravity.  Pope Francis held secret meetings with same-sex LGBT couples during US trip: "This month, Pope Francis has called high-level meetings at the Vatican to discuss how to include openly gay and lesbian people within the church. His secret meeting last week with same-sex couples shows you the Popes true intentions....

    "Pope Francis is building his One World Religion, and the gates of Hell fully support him. Grassi said the Pope has long known that he is gay, but has never condemned his sexuality or his same-sex relationship. Hmm…The two encounters — one with a gay couple and one with a government official who ardently opposes homosexuality — have left the Vatican scrambling to issue statements that seek to de-politicize the Pope’s meetings and agenda. See Depravity


Mocking God's Word. The shocking message Pope Francis preached at New Yorks St. Patrick's Cathedral: "This is what he said: 'The cross shows us a different way of measuring success. ... And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail and not produce fruit, we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus Christ and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, the failure of the cross.'... But the thing is, he didn’t say that. He just simply stated that the life of Jesus on the cross 'ended in failure.'”  See Mocking God and His Guidelines


The Rise of Global Control. Obama puts U.S. on 'fast track' to world government: "The United Nations 2030 Agenda endorsed by President Obama, Pope Francis and the U.N. General Assembly brings the world one giant step closer to true global governance. The U.N. document approved Sunday in New York, 'Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,' includes in its preamble the call for a 'new universal agenda' for all of humanity.'

     "But... How does such an ambitious plan get implemented? The plan bypasses Congress and the legislatures of the world’s other 193 nations. Yet, the heads of state agreed to work toward implementation, largely through secret trade deals and backroom bureaucratic rule-making." See  The Revolutionary Roots of the United Nations


Islam.  Ben Carson goes after terror-tied CAIR, wants investigations of tax-excemp status: "Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson wants the IRS to investigate the Council On American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). ... CAIR’s founder and current leader, Nihad Awad, has proven ties to Hamas, a U.S.-designated Palestinian terrorist group. CAIR has 'brazenly violated IRS rules' as a tax-exempt organization...,' Carson alleged.."' See  The Muslim Brotherhood & the Plots to Rule an Islamic World 


Ignoring God's Guidelines:  Pope Francis Requested Meeting with Gay Couple, Wanted ‘a Hug’: "After the Vatican revealed Friday that Pope Francis’ meeting with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis did not constitute 'support,' the Vatican revealed yet another juicy tidbit about the Pope’s trip: he explicitly requested a meeting with a homosexual couple....

     "'Pope Francis explicitly requested a meeting with Yayo Grassi and his partner Iwan. ... Is there any doubt that this media-savvy Pontiff felt the need to prevent leftist attacks on him over the Davis meeting by first disassociating from Davis, then by putting out news of the gay meet-up?"


Globalism.  Pope Francis doesn't 'support' Kim Davis: "First, the Pope kept his meeting with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis a secret. Davis, of course, refused to license same-sex marriages, stating that it conflicted with her religious viewpoint; for that refusal, she was briefly jailed for contempt of court. Now, the Vatican has told the media that his meeting with Davis didn’t act as an endorsement.

     "Davis reportedly visited at the invitation of the Vatican ambassador, but spokesman Federico Lombardi explained, 'The pope did not enter into the details of the situation of Mrs. Davis and his meeting with her should not be considered a form of support of her position.... If the Pope cannot endorse a Christian refusing to violate her Biblical beliefs... what can he endorse?"

Preparation for War.  ISIS fabricated by U.S., former CIA contractor says: "The former CIA contractor said that the agency is frustrated for being asked to train the terrorist group and at the same time to combat it. ... the group is something the CIA 'created and controls'.... He explained that ISIS was 'designed to create massive amounts of fear and cause a response here at home [the U.S.]' so that 'more spending and bloodshed and warfare' is authorized. Although he acknowledged the terror group is real and thousands of extremist Islamists have joined ISIS, he also believes the cold- blooded executions are staged.” See Merging the Americas in a New Global Order

"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
