     Note from Berit:  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

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard you hearts and mind through Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:6-7

"Please pray for the persecuted Christians and Jews in these challenging  times. Though surrounded by evil, we find victory and peace in our beloved Shepherd!

Faith. The Bible says: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7.14)

     But where is the Church, and where are her leaders calling us to pray? We now have the example set by South African Christians who responded to such a call by travelling hundreds of miles across the country to join an estimated 1.7 million people petitioning the God of Israel to intervene in their nation’s desperate problems with corruption at government level spiraling out of control. See  Our God reigns!

Taking a Stand.  Mom convicted for homeschooling not backing down: In its defense of an Ohio mother convicted over homeschooling, the Home School Legal Defense Association is charging a state “bureaucracy gone awry” is responsible for the hell she suffered. Last September a common pleas judge in Warren County, Ohio, imposed a guilty verdict on Valerie Bradley for being “criminally reckless” in her son’s education.... She was convicted even as a state official praised her for her success, evidenced by her son’s high academic achievement. See God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1 

Faith.  German judges sanction Jew hatred: On November 10, 1938, 16-year-old Gertrude Rothschild was recruited by her rabbi to hurriedly enter the ruins of their synagogue in Konstanz am Bodensee to help gather up and bury the burned remains of their Torah scrolls, all that remained after the infamous night of violence, Kristallnacht. (Important history)

Faith.  The suffering Christian! "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we do not look at the things which are seen -- but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary--but the things which are not seen are eternal!" 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
      Few people will call their present affliction light--and few are disposed to call it short. ... Yet the apostle Paul writes thus about his affliction: "Our light affliction, which is but for a moment." Paul's afflictions were not, in themselves, light. ...It was only when he compared his present affliction with the glory that was so soon to follow--that it seemed to him light and short. Then he could say, "Our light affliction, which is but for a moment."

Lawlessness. The Simple Reason Why A Second American Civil War May Be Inevitable: We’ve always been a nation of many nations. The culture of New England is different from the culture of the Deep South, which is different from the cultures in the West Coast or the Midwest. ... Within those areas, there are ethnic, linguistic, and religious enclaves. ...somehow we’ve been able to find enough common ground to keep this country together for more than a century. However, something has changed.... Our nation has clearly never been this divided since the Civil War. See The fall and rise of human violence

Religion. Landlord must pay Muslim couple $12,000 for failing to accommodate their religious practices: If you don’t step and fetchit for Islam, be prepared to be sued and lose. Not only did the victims of this Islamic supremacist lawsuit have to pay $12,000 “for injury to their dignity, feelings and self-respect”; they must also take an e-learning course on “Human Rights in Rental Housing.” Welcome to 1984, or should I say الف وتسعمائة واربعة وثم. See Corruption

War?  (This article will not open) U.S. Air Force To Launch Unarmed ICBM Off California Coast In Preparation For Striking North Korea: ...President Trump has authorized a military strike on the rogue nation of North Korea. ...shortly after midnight tonight, the U.S. Air Force will test fire a Minuteman III ICBM off the California coast. Then, President Trump will have a closed door meeting with the entire United States Senate to discuss military options to be exercised against North Korea.


Crisis!  Dad sent to prison for homeschooling his kids: A homeschooling father who sought to give his children the best education available, by pulling them out of the politicized state schools in Cuba and teaching them at home, has been ordered to spend a year under house arrest.... See From Freedom to Servitude


Corrupting Nature.  Catastrophic Pacific Ocean Die-Off: Many have heard about some of the die-offs occurring in our oceans, but most have no understanding of how catastrophic the actual reality is. Fukushima is where all the fingers point as the source of the carnage along the coast... The US (and other nations) have also routinely dumped nuclear waste into our oceans.

Conscience.  Midnight Approaches: “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” (Daniel 12:3) The world today seems to be spiraling out of control. Amidst the ever-increasing carnage and chaos there does not seem to be any one person, group, country or international body with the ability restore calm, or even basic common sense.

Genocide.  ‘A moving, epic, sumptuous film on the suppressed topic of the Armenian genocide.' Armenians are not just any Christians. They are an indigenous Middle Eastern people. They have lived on their land, as recognizable, autonomous Armenians, for over two thousand years. In 301 AD, Armenians were the first to adopt Christianity as their state religion. ... The first notorious genocide of the bloody twentieth century was not Hitler's. It was the Turks'. Hitler was quite impressed with how the Turks got away with years of expulsions, selective assassinations, starvation and literal, not metaphoric, crucifixions. See  Genocide & Human Nature

Control?  State drops demand parents confess they're endangering own kids: ...a form created this summer by the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment... ordered parents to sign statements they did not agree with has been changed. The form was required for parents to obtain an exemption from regulatory immunization requirements for religious or personal reasons. ... The form put parents on record saying they were knowingly endangering their children. See Trusting God as Freedom Fades

More information about the Holocaust - including Norway where my father was a leader of the underground, was caught and tortured (but didn't reveal he had seen), and spent the last 3 months in Grini Concentration Camp.

Science confirms the incredible story of Lithuania's Holocaust escape tunnel: Shortly after the Nazis invaded Lithuania in June 1941, they started bringing groups of Jews from the nearby city of Vilnius, known as the Jerusalem of Lithuania, to the Ponar forest. The Nazis lined them up, shot them at close range, and tossed the bodies into pits.
      The prisoners knew that when they finished their job, they would be shot. So they came up with a plan. Every night, for 76 nights, they dug a tunnel under the Nazis’ feet. ... Then on the last night of Passover, April 15, 1944, the time had come. The prisoners cut off their shackles with a smuggled-in file, and shuffled through the narrow passageway in the ground. When they emerged from the tunnel, the Nazis started shooting. Only 11 prisoners made it out and joined a partisan unit in the forest. ... The survivors passed their stories down to their children — but the children never knew for certain if the tunnel actually existed. Until recently...

Escape Tunnel, Dug by Hand, Is Found at Holocaust Massacre Site: A team of archaeologists and mapmakers say they have uncovered a forgotten tunnel that 80 Jews dug largely by hand as they tried to escape from a Nazi extermination site in Lithuania about 70 years ago.


Faith.  Midnight Approaches: “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” (Daniel 12:3) The world today seems to be spiraling out of control. Amidst the ever-increasing carnage and chaos there does not seem to be any one person, group, country or international body with the ability restore calm, or even basic common sense.

Persecution.  (Slightly belated) Tonight begins Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let us remember those who died & those who risked their lives to tell the world the truth about Hitler’s genocide. This year, let us all make time to remember the six million Jews that were murdered by the Nazis, including 1.5 million children. Let us honor their memories, and pledge ourselves never to forget them. Let us devote ourselves to making sure such evil is never allowed to happen again.... This is a day for the whole world to remember and commit themselves to standing against evil and against genocide in our time.

Praise.  Ben Carson Finds $500 Billion (Billion!) in Errors During Audit Of Obama HUD: Ben Carson was the first neurosurgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins, so, he's kind of a super hero. But apparently, he's also not a bad accountant. President Trump picked Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, whose budget grew by leaps and bounds under Barack Obama. In one of his first acts as HUD Secretary, Carson ordered an audit of the agency. What he found was staggering: $520 billion in [Obama's] book-keeping errors. See Our God reigns!

Likely the first to die in the blast, Faheem saved the lives of dozens inside the church.

     “I’m not angry at the one who did this,” said his wife, children by her side. “I’m telling him, ‘May God forgive you, and we also forgive you. Believe me, we forgive you.’ “How great is this forgiveness you have!”  "Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him." Psalm 2:12

"Syria is getting torn apart and evil is all around us. We can touch evil and feel it. ... But we also experience truth of the living Jesus Christ.

Rights. Geert Wilders and the Suicide of Europe: None of Wilders's speeches incites violence against anyone; the violence that surrounds him is directed only at him.

Corruption.  Pizzagate: A Special Report on the Washington, D.C. Pedophila Scandal: ...compared to the global Pedogate crime syndicate, Pizzagate is just one of many similar pedophilia rings that dot the globe. ... Pizzagate Represents only a single American Franchise within a Worldwide Child Trafficking Operation known as Pedogate. ...the ongoing Hollywood Pedogate is joined at the hip with the D.C.

(Please pray for our land and our children!)

Signs of the Times.  UNESCO Director: ‘Jerusalem is the Capital of King David’: UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova has rebuffed attempts by the UN cultural body to deny a historic Jewish connection to Jerusalem. “In the Torah, Jerusalem is the capital of King David, where Solomon built the Temple and placed the Ark of the Covenant,” Bokova said...

If he wins he would be America’s first Muslim governor. ...he has the full backing of America’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood-linked network of Islamic organizations.” See The Muslim Brotherhood

29 Reasons Norway Is The Most Beautiful Scandinavian Country. I was born in Norway a month before Hitler's armies took over our country in 1940. During the five years of war my father was a leader in the "underground resistance." He was captured near the end of the war when a group of Nazis surrounded our  apartment in Oslo during the night. I woke up (almost 5 years old), ran into our living room and asked the Nazi to show me his gun. He pulled it out, and I grabbed it and ran toward the stairway to the attic. Naturally, I was caught. My father was taken to Grini, a cruel Nazi concentration camp.

     During the war, Norwegians of all ages learned to fight for our freedom! But Norway was not a Christian nation. A few years later, my "godmother" - a wonderful missionary on a short furlough spent an evening with me to teach me about God, His Word and the comfort of His presence. What a blessing! I knew no other Christians -- until we moved to America a few years later. Thank You, Lord!!!

     George Henry Cavell, who was clinging to a board drifted near Harper. Harper, who was struggling in the water, cried, “Are you saved?” The answer returned, “No.” Harper shouted words from the Bible: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.

Occult.  Transgender and Demon Possession (by Joseph Chambers): Our world is on a downward spiral. Demon activity is exploding. By the time Satan has finished his last ditch effort to be God, the world will be a wilderness. ...

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
