Tyranny.  Courts say living by Christian faith illegal: Bakers, photographers and marriage-venue owners were penalized, and government officials publicly vilified their Christian faith and ordered them, in some case, to be re-educated. Now two rulings have cemented the American court system’s determination that Christians must not be allowed to express their faith in public life. See From Freedom to Servitude

Spiritual Warfare.  Night is falling on America and only prayer can stop it: The Clintons and the Obamas, goaded on by wildly cheering throngs, gloating over an election night win guaranteeing Obama’s destruction of America living on through Hillary Clinton. The darkest of nights will have fallen over America. The occult will step forward.... The elite will have had 8 long years in the planning stage for their evil delivery of what should be called ‘Night Descends on America’. Well before November 8, they had turned a defenseless America over to its radical Islamist enemy. See Faith

Taking a Stand. Donald Trump delivers the specifics we’ve been demanding in a massive trade policy speech: Today, I am going to talk about how to Make America Wealthy Again. ... The legacy of Pennsylvania steelworkers lives in the bridges, railways and skyscrapers that make up our great American landscape. But our workers’ loyalty was repaid with betrayal. Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization - moving our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas. Globalization has made the financial elite... very wealthy. But it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache... See Taking a Stand?

Choosing Islam.  Presbyterian Church USA begins General Assembly with prayer to Allah: ...[The] General Assembly opening plenary session began with a Muslim, Wajidi Said... offering a prayer to Allah.... After reciting a chant in Arabic, Said said: "Allah bless us... Lead us on... the path of all the prophets: Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad.” Said had asked Allah to convert the assembly: “Praying to Allah … he was pleading that the Presbyterians gathered there would be converted to the straight path, i.e., become Muslims.”

Signs of the Times.  We Are Home - כיפה-לייב We've come home, And we'll never stand alone;

After 2000 years we are home! (A wonderful musical message from Israel!)

A Special Reminder:  We have been given the greatest blessing of all, we can go before the Living God right into the throne room, because of the grace that has been poured out upon us by the love of Christ. Truly it is the latter rain, soak in His mercy, live in His showers of mercy, and hold onto His eternal promise. --- Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16 NKJV)

Conspiracy.  Why Are UN Troops On American Soil? Over the past couple of days, the Internet has been abuzz with reports and photos of UN military vehicles on US soil. Many people are looking at this as a shocking development. The following has been reported as if this were some novel and recent event: “Military U.N. vehicles have been spotted in Virginia, shocking motorists and sparking conspiracy theories.... See The U.N. Plan For Global Control:

Lawlessness. The Democrates' Mob Rule in the House of Representatives: The anarchist spirits of Occupy Wall Street and student campus occupations are alive and well in the House Democratic caucus. They shed their responsibilities by flagrantly violating the rules of the institution to which they were elected, intent on creating a media spectacle.  See The fall and rise of human violence 

Economy.  We Just Witnessed the Greatest One Day Global Stock Market Loss in World History: More stock market wealth was lost on Friday than on any other day in world history. As you will see below, global investors lost two trillion dollars on the day following the Brexit vote. And remember, this is on top of the trillions that global investors have already lost over the past 12 months. It is important to understand that the Brexit vote was not the beginning of a new crisis – it has simply accelerated a global financial crisis that started last year and that was already in the process of unfolding.

The Occult. Hillary Throws [horned occult] Hand Symbol During Raucous Rally with Elizabeth Warren: ...Hillary Clinton threw up a hand symbol after Sen. Elizabeth Warren chanted her name to rally Democratic voters in Ohio.... (See video)  See Spiritual Warfare: Reviving Witchcraft

Spiritual Warfare.  Islamic State Calls for Attacks to ‘Paralyze’ Europe Following Surprise Brexit Success: In the hours following the U.K.’s historic vote to leave the European Union, the Islamic State has reportedly called for attacks in Brussels and Berlin in order to “paralyze” Europe. And the U.K. is taking the threats seriously. British military chiefs are warning there is a “serious and direct threat to holiday resorts across Europe” from terror groups like the Islamic State.

Transformation. Six More Countries Want Referendums to Exit EU: Brussels simply went too far. They cross the line moving from an economic union to a political subordination of Europe. Now five more countries want to hold referendums to exit the EU – France, the Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Finland and Hungary all could leave. With Hollande approval rating at about 11%, Merkel [is] lucky she is not tarred & feathered... See The emerging New World Order

Transformation.  Farage Tells Breitbart: ‘Obama Visit Caused “Brexit Bounce”, Swayed Vote In Favour Of Leave’: UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage told Breitbart that the visit by President Obama, where he threatened to send Britain to the “back of the queue” if the public voted to leave the European Union (EU), backfired and caused a “Brexit Bounce”, swaying Britons to vote for Brexit.”  See Whose "rights" will rule in a "democratized" world?

Taking a Stand?  Five reasons Brexit could signal Trump winning the White House: The two most surprising political phenomena of this year have been the rise of Donald Trump and the success of the Leave Europe camp in Britain's referendum on Brexit.

Moral Corruption.  Muslim Migrant Sex Assault Comes to Idaho: The little girl was... playing in between those two apartment units when 3 boys (from 2 Syrian refugee families, ages 8, 10, 13) pulled a knife on her, held it to her throat, forced her into the laundry unit, stripped her naked, raped, and urinated on her. The 13 year old “coached” the younger boys as he videoed.... But at a local city... and determined to bring the guilty to justice, council members were openly contemptuous and hostile toward citizens who were expressing their concerns....

‘The Atheist Delusion’: Ray Comfort’s masterpiece: God’s Word declares, “The fool hath said in his heart “there is no God’” (Psalm 14). When the Creator calls God-deniers “fools,” He’s not saying they’re stupid clowns. Merriam Webster defines “fool” as “a person lacking in judgment or prudence.”


Managing Change.  Brexit: The Nation is Back!  In France, before the British vote, the weekly JDD conducted an online poll with one question: Do you want France out of the EU? 88% of people answered "YES!" This is not a scientific result, but it is nevertheless an indication. A recent -- and more scientific -- survey for Pew Research found that in France, a founding member of "Europe," only 38% of people still hold a favorable view of the EU, six points lower than in Britain. See The emerging New World Order?


Managing Change.  Nigel Farage on Brexit Win: “Victory for the People against the Big Merchant Banks: The leader of the Independence Party (UKIP), Nigel Farage, has called for June 23 to go down in history as 'Independence Day'. (See video)

Silencing Faith.  Airline boots Christian for 'prayer' on phone: A Christian business analyst was booted from a flight from the United Kingdom to Amsterdam when his seatmate, reading on the man’s smartphone as he typed messages, apparently saw the word “prayer” and reported him to authorities as a possible security threat. ... Opebiyi, 40, of London, was forced to give up his telephone and his password to authorities, who ordered him off the flight. See Trusting God as Freedom Fades


Islam.  Population Demographics now show that the Islamization of England cannot be stopped: Why have the Muslims targeted England as the first place on conquest? ... English is the world language, absolute time is Greenwich Mean Time.... What better place for the Muslim invasion to claim as a conquest?


Conspiracy.  Obama and Clinton Are Complicit in Creating ISIS: The origins of Daesh, known commonly as the Islamic State or ISIS, tie back directly to Obama and Clinton policy delusions.  See The Revolutionary Steps to Global Tyranny

Revolution.  Barack Obama flashes two fingers - Illuminati Salute at Nuclear Security Summit in Washington: "During a group photo of world leaders, Obama flashed a narrow-eyed grimace as he held up two fingers in a salute used by countless popes and Nazi leaders. A symbol that stands, not for peace, but for world domination and global conquest." See Plots to Rule an Islamic World 

Genocide.  Obama Administration Declares Killing Babies a “CIVIL RIGHT:  ...Obama Administration has declared that though a client of an insurer has moral objections to baby killing.... so a church or religious school must include baby killing as part of the health benefits. (It reminds me of WW2:  Nazi Death Camp)

Spiritual Warfare. The Unseen Foe Behind Rising Evil: We don't hear much about spiritual warfare these days. Most churches seem to ignore the reality of Satan and the evil he inspires. ... Since the 18th century's birth of the "Age of Reason," an increasing number of "enlightened" Western leaders and influential "change agents" have tried to discredit the Bible and silence believers.... No wonder our public schools are becoming bastions of atheism, immorality and -- spreading fast -- the promotion of Islam. See Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!

Occult. Out of the Shadows: Wicca Grows in Austin and Beyond: Mary Caldwell has spiky pink hair, tattooed arms and works in customer service for a software company.

See Spiritual Warfare: Reviving Witchcraft


The Occult. Was The Gotthard Base Tunnel Opening Ceremony An Illuminati Ritual Intended To Honor Satan?  "The opening ceremony of the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland featured a “goat-man” that dies, is resurrected, is worshipped and is crowned as “the king of the world”. The “goat-man” that played such a key role in this performance bore a striking resemblance to Baphomet, which in recent decades has become one of the key symbols used to represent Satan in the occult community." See The Nature and Tactics of Satan

Rules for Radicals.  Behind the anti-Trump Disruptors, the Fine Hands of Alinsky and Obama: "In Saul Alinsky’s 1971 book Rules for Radicals, the late author could have been describing Obama’s last seven years in office when he wrote that an efficacious organizer should be 'an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community. ...Alinsky’s star pupil, Barack Obama, has successfully managed to whip up global chaos."

The Occult. Bush, Beliefs & Elusive Bonesmen  (John Kerry - also a member of Skull & Bones): "I believe that all the world, whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God. That's what I believe.' President George W. Bush.... 'There is a power in these prayers [to various gods].... Skull & Bones has trained three generations of the Bush family: Prescott Bush [How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power], his son George W. H. Bush, and his grandson George W. Bush.... The story begins at Yale, where three threads of American social history -- espionage, drug smuggling and secret societies..." ("..the whole world is under the sway of the evil one." 1 John 5:19)

Obama's Mentor.  Zbigniew Brzezinski: The man behind Obama’s foreign policy (founder of the Trilateral Comission) ...Obama admitted... that he had no foreign policy experience whatsoever - except being a Muslim. But ...foreign policy guru Zbigniew Brzezinsky became Barack Obama's 'new brain.'" See Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

"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
