Are We Being “Auto-Enrolled” into the Mark of the Beast?

Revelation 13:14 – 13:18

14  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.

This piece does not aim to provide certainty of conclusion(s), but food for thought.  Over time, as one observes seemingly unrelated or spontaneous developments, a pattern can become discernable.  This writer is “discerning” that we may slowly be being corralled into a “Mark of the Beast” regime – not necessarily by force, as many assume – but through a form of “auto-enrollment” by means of that corralling. Many have opined that the “Mark” will manifest itself in the form of microchips implanted underneath the skin – whether voluntarily using deception, or by force – there’s even a movie about this titled Rumors of Wars. And that may well occur.  But …

Demonic: Abortion activists try to burn down Mexico City cathedral

David Ramos reports for Catholic News Agency (CNA) that on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, “abortion rights activists” tried to burn down the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral.

But faithful lay Catholics protected the cathedral by gathering before the church’s front doors.

Mauricio Alfonso Guitar, deputy head of the Cristera National Guard in Mexico City, told CNA’s Spanish language sister agency ACI Prensa that “thanks to the denunciations in Catholics’ social networks, offering to defend the churches, the government … sent police to defend them.”

ACI Prensa reported that firefighters acted quickly to prevent the fire from spreading, and police acted to prevent further acts of aggression by the “abortion rights activists”.

One would have to be demonically possessed to be so hell-bent on the “right” to kill unborn babies.

Indeed, in May 2015, inside the Cathedral of San Luis Potosía in the city of San Luis Potosi, a group of bishops performed an exorcism on the entire country of Mexico.

Clearly, the exorcism failed.

As reported by LifeSiteNews, Cardinal Juan Sandoval, Bishop Emeritus from Gualajara, who led the exorcism, said, “Mexico opened the door to the devil when we legalized abortion. It’s the legalization of homicide.”

Journalist Roberto O’Farril who witnessed the exorcism, compared abortion to the sacrifices performed by the Aztecs. H said: “Many of those sacrifices were human sacrificies. Young warriors and damsels whose chests were cut open to take out the heart and offer it to these demons. Mexico is living a demonic infestation similar to the one these territories lived before the evangelization and before Our Lady of Guadalupe’s apparition.”

According to a 2015 study by the pro-abort Guttmacher Institute, Mexico has one of the highest abortion rates in the world, with 33 in every 1,000 pregnancies ending in abortion.

3 recent victories in America’s Culture War: abortion, conversion therapy, Drag Queen Story Hour

Although the overall trend is that the Right have lost the culture war, we do have three recent victories.

Those three wins as reported by Dr. Michael Brown for The Christian Post, Sept. 20, 2019, are:

(1) The number and rate of abortions in America have dropped to their lowest levels since 1973:

The Associated Press reports that according to a Sept. 18, 2019 report from the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports abortion rights, the number and rate of abortions across the United States have plunged to their lowest levels since 1973 when the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade legalized abortion nationwide:

  • The number of abortions have steadily decreased from the peak of 1.6 million in 1990, to a little more than 1 million in 2011, to 926,000 in 2014, to 862,000 abortions in 2017.
  • The rate of abortions in 2017 declined to 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 — the lowest rate since 1973, and less than half what it was in 1990.

Admittedly, some of the decline is due to increased use of contraception and lower fertility rates, with women having fewer children in general. Still, the decline in the number and rate of abortions is also due to a recognition of the wrongness of abortion.

2) New York City has decided to drop an oppressive ban on so-called conversion therapy:

Tyler O’Neil reports for PJ Media on Sept. 16, 2019, that NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson announced that because of a legal challenge from Orthodox Jewish psychologist Dr. David Schwartz, the city will act swiftly to repeal a 2017 law forbidding therapists from charging clients for “services intended to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.” Therapists who violated the law would be fined $1,000 per violation.

Johnson, who is homosexual, said: “Obviously I didn’t want to repeal this. I don’t want to be someone who is giving in to these right-wing groups. But the Supreme Court has become conservative; the Second Circuit, which oversees New York, has become more conservative. We think this is the most responsible, prudent course.”

3) Some cities are canceling “Drag Queen Story Hours” in local libraries:

Recall that last year, the American Library Association approved “Drag Queen Story Hour” in public libraries for children as young as 3. Below is one of the drag queens (source: Mass Resistance).

On Sept. 8, 2019, the South Bay Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista, CA, was vandalized for opposing “Drag Queen Story Hour” in the local public library. That Sunday morning, church goers were greeted by satanic graffiti on the church door.  (Source: Mass Resistance)

Some cities, however, are canceling “Drag Queen Story Hours” because of parental protests.

One of them is Leander, Texas.

As reported by Mass Resistance, a pro-family activist organization, on August 15, 2019, Leander’s City Council voted 5-2 to stop renting out their public library meeting rooms to outside organizations, and voted 6-1 to require background checks for guest presenters for programs in the library involving children 17 and younger. By all accounts, these policy changes will completely stop the “Drag Queen Story Hour” events in Leander’s public library.

Sunday Devotional: ‘I did not come to bring peace, but a sword’

Luke 14:25-27

Great crowds were traveling with Jesus,
and he turned and addressed them,
“If anyone comes to me without hating his father and mother,
wife and children, brothers and sisters,
and even his own life,
he cannot be my disciple.
Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me
cannot be my disciple….”

Today’s reading is reminiscent of another passage:

Matthew 10:34-36

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth.
I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
For I have come to turn a man against his father,
a daughter against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law —
a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.”

Sobering words indeed.

I don’t know why a popular image of Jesus the Christ is that of an epicene, meek and mild man. Is it because our Lord willingly allowed Himself to be tortured and executed on a cross?

But the truth is that the Jesus described in the canonical Gospels is neither meek nor mild nor unmasculine. A carpenter by trade, He was muscular and strong. He got angry with the moneychangers in the Temple and overturned their tables — nothing mild about that. He took on the élite Pharisees and was outspoken in denouncing them, calling them children of the Devil and the synagogue of Satan. He spoke with complete authority and captured the rapt attention of an audience of thousands –remember the miracle of loaves and fishes? He told His followers not to be wimps, instructing them that “if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one” (Luke 22:36).

All of which is hardly the behavior or demeanor of a meek, mild, effeminate, wimpy man.

And, as in the above passages from Luke 14:25-27 and Matthew 10:34-36, He warned us again and again that following Him won’t be easy and that we will be hated and persecuted simply because of His name, because we are His followers.

Luke 21:12, 16-19

“[T]hey will seize and persecute you,
they will hand you over to the synagogues and to prisons,
and they will have you led before kings and governors
because of my name…. 
You will even be betrayed by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends,
and they will put some of you to death. 
You will be hated by all because of my name,
but not a hair on your head will be destroyed.
Stand firm, and you will win life.

For, as His followers, we are not of this world. Thus, the powers and all who are of this world will always hate and persecute us. And by their hate, we will know who they are (John 8:44).

So gird your loins.

Be prepared.

Stand firm and be strong!

May the peace and love and courage of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Iowa college ‘accepts’ resignation of Antifa professor who wants to kill all Evangelical Christians & clock Trump with a bat

Amidst the wasteland of Left-infested colleges and universities, a small college in Iowa is standing tall — Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Last Thursday, August 22, 2019, reacting to complaints about an adjunct English professor at Kirkwood Community College, Jeff Klinzman, KCRG TV9 contacted Klinzman. Klinzman told KCRG, “I affirm that I am Antifa,” and said in an email he makes no apology for what he has posted online:

  • On the Facebook page for “Iowa Antifa”, Klinzman posted a litany of far-left statements and conversations, including a threat to “clock” President Trump “with a bat”.
  • On his Facebook page, in 2012 Klinzman stated his desire to “stop evangelical Christians,” including a poem that said, “Kill them all and bury them deep in the ground“. because of what “what evangelical Christians are doing to this county and its people fills me with rage, and a desire to exact revenge.”

The Secret Service told KCRG they are aware of Klinzman’s social media posts but would not confirm if they are investigating it as a threat to President Trump.

Klinzman has since scrubbed much of his Facebook page, including the post calling for killing all Evangelical Christians. But Klinzman still lists his “likes” for far-left organizations, including, “Antifa Nebraska,” “Heartland Antifascists,” “Antifascist USA,” “Iowa Antifa,” “Iowa City Democratic Socialists of America,” and “U.S. Democratic Socialists.”

Kirkwood Community College acted swiftly.

On August 23, a day after the KCRG report, Kirkwood Community College President Lori Sundberg released a statement saying that the college had accepted Jeff Klinzman’s resignation:

As you may be aware, it has come to light that Jeff Klinzman, an adjunct professor in our English Department, has received criticism for opinions he has expressed online and in the news media. Some of those opinions were expressed as far back as 2012, while another about the current President of the United States, was made more recently. The news of these opinions has drawn considerable attention from many inside and outside of the Kirkwood community just as we embark on a new school year.

Kirkwood Community College leadership has been assessing this matter in recent days, especially its potential impact on our learning environment.

With the safety of our students, faculty and staff as our top concern, we made the decision this morning to identify an instructor who will take over the one course that Mr. Klinzman was to have taught this semester. We have spoken with Mr. Klinzman this afternoon about this matter and have accepted his resignation.

I understand that our decision to remove Mr. Klinzman from the classroom may be supported by some and criticized by others. I also understand that in today’s climate, some may use this decision to support broader arguments about free speech on college campuses. That’s why I want to be very clear with you the reasoning behind this decision.

It is Kirkwood leadership’s assessment that the attention this matter has garnered has the potential to create an environment that is disruptive to our mission. Our decision to remove Mr. Klinzman from the classroom has nothing to do with the substance of his views or his right to express them. Rather, our decision is based solely on our commitment to fostering a safe learning environment for our students, faculty and staff.

I also want to be clear that Kirkwood Community College fully supports Mr. Klinzman’s right to articulate his views in whatever forum he chooses. This action does not in any way prevent him from continuing to engage in the expression of free speech. However, when the expression of views by him or any member of our community is perceived as placing public safety in jeopardy, or hampers our ability to deliver on our mission, we will always do what is necessary in service to our students’ pursuit of a higher education.

Campus Reform points out that in her statement, President Sundberg’s reference to “our decision to remove Mr. Klinzman from the classroom” suggests Klinzman’s resignation was not voluntary. Indeed, The Iowa Standard reports that “According to a comment left on a post by Iowa Antifa, former Kirkwood Community College professor Jeff Klinzman said he resigned at Kirkwood’s request.

Sunday Devotional: I am sending you like lambs among wolves

Luke 10:1-12, 16

At that time the Lord appointed seventy-two others
whom he sent ahead of him in pairs
to every town and place he intended to visit.
He said to them,
“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
so ask the master of the harvest
to send out laborers for his harvest.
Go on your way;
behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves.
Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals;
and greet no one along the way.
Into whatever house you enter, first say,
‘Peace to this household.’
If a peaceful person lives there,
your peace will rest on him;
but if not, it will return to you.
Stay in the same house
and eat and drink what is offered to you,
for the laborer deserves his payment.
Do not move about from one house to another.
Whatever town you enter and they welcome you,
eat what is set before you,
cure the sick in it and say to them,
‘The kingdom of God is at hand for you.’
Whatever town you enter and they do not receive you,
go out into the streets and say,
‘The dust of your town that clings to our feet,
even that we shake off against you.’
Yet know this: the kingdom of God is at hand.
I tell you,
it will be more tolerable for Sodom
on that day than for that town….
Whoever listens to you listens to me.
Whoever rejects you rejects me.
And whoever rejects me
rejects the one who sent me.”

Our Lord said: “I am sending you like lambs among wolves.

He also warned us: “And you will be hated by everyone because of my name” (Mark 13:13) and “If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you” (John 15:18).

So it shouldn’t surprise us that Christians are being persecuted across the world and even in First-Amendment America:

But for enduring the world’s hatred and persecution, we are told to “rejoice” because “your names are written in heaven”. (Luke 10:18) As Jeremiah 17:7-8 says:

Thus says the LORD:
Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
whose hope is the LORD.
He is like a tree planted beside the waters
that stretches out its roots to the stream:
it fears not the heat when it comes;
its leaves stay green;
in the year of drought it shows no distress,
but still bears fruit.

Be strong!

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Millions of Hong Kong protesters sing Hallelujah to the Lord

The entity called “Hong Kong” off the southern coast of China refers to the small island of Hong Kong, the Kowloon peninsula, the New Territories and several offshore islets. Comprised of only 426 sq. miles, Hong Kong is the world’s fourth-most densely populated region with a 2018 population of nearly 7.5 million.

In 1842, Hong Kong island became a British colony as a result of the British defeat of China’s last dynasty (Qing) in the Opium War. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War, and was further extended when in 1898, Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories  — an area of 368 sq. mi. between Kowloon and the border with China.

As a British colony with a capitalist free-market economy, Hong Kong became a roaring economic success as one of the world’s most significant financial centers and commercial ports. It is the world’s 10th-largest exporter and 9th-largest importer; its legal tender, the Hong Kong dollar, is the world’s 13th-most traded currency.

In 1997, Britain’s 99-year lease of New Territories ended. London, however, elected to return to Communist China not just the New Territories, but Hong Kong island and Kowloon as well. Beijing made Hong Kong a special administrative region, with the promise that Hong Kong would have a government and economic system separate from that of mainland China.

Beginning in late April 2019, tens of thousands of Hong Kong Chinese took to the streets to protest a proposed extradition bill, the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019. The bill would extradite to China accused Hong Kong citizens and foreign nationals, and subject them to China’s arbitrary and undemocratic legal system. Protesters correctly argue that the passage of the extradiction bill into law would mean the end of Hong Kong’s independent judiciary and its status as a special administrative region.

The protest on June 9 was attended by over a million people, calling for the withdrawal of the bill and resignation of Chief Executive Carrie Lam.

Reuters reports (via the New York Post), June 18, 2019, that the protesters are singing Christian hymns, especially “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord”, which has become “the unlikely anthem of Hong Kong’s protests against an extradition bill that have drawn millions of people onto the streets”.

Reuters continues:

For the past week, the hymn has been heard almost nonstop at the main protest site, in front of the city’s Legislative Council and at marches and even at tense standoffs with the police.

It started with a group of Catholic students who sang several Christian songs at the main protest site, with “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord” catching on among the crowd, even though only about 10% of Hong Kong people are Christian….

The hymn was composed in 1974 by Linda Stassen-Benjamin in the United States for Easter. Its five words are repeated over four stanzas in a minor key, which gives it an air of meditative solemnity.

The protests over the past 10 days have been largely peaceful although police on Wednesday last week used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowds.

“Stop shooting, or else we sing ‘Hallelujah to the Lord’,” read one protest placard after the rubber bullets were fired.

Protesters say the religious song has often helped defuse tension with the police.

“It has a calming effect,” said Timothy Lam, 58, a Catholic priest at Grace Church Hong Kong, who has attended the protest with other churchmen to promote peace.

“The police had a lot of equipment, they were very tense and searching people. The students sang this to show they were peaceful,” Lam said of a confrontation last week.

For now, the protesters appear to be winning.

Hong Kong’s Beijing-backed government leader, Chief Executive Carrie Lam, has postponed the introduction of the extradition bill and apologized in the face of the huge show of opposition. Lam is Catholic and some protesters said they thought their adoption of “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord” might have helped sway her.

Please pray for the protesters.

Please pray for Hong Kong.

Sunday Devotional: The persecution of Paul and Barnabas

Acts 13:14, 43-52

Paul and Barnabas continued on from Perga
and reached Antioch in Pisidia.
On the sabbath they entered the synagogue and took their seats.
Many Jews and worshipers who were converts to Judaism
followed Paul and Barnabas, who spoke to them
and urged them to remain faithful to the grace of God.

On the following sabbath almost the whole city gathered
to hear the word of the Lord.
When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy
and with violent abuse contradicted what Paul said.
Both Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said,
“It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you first,
but since you reject it
and condemn yourselves as unworthy of eternal life,
we now turn to the Gentiles.
For so the Lord has commanded us,
I have made you a light to the Gentiles,
that you may be an instrument of salvation
to the ends of the earth.”

The Gentiles were delighted when they heard this
and glorified the word of the Lord.
All who were destined for eternal life came to believe,
and the word of the Lord continued to spread
through the whole region.
The Jews, however, incited the women of prominence who were worshipers
and the leading men of the city,
stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas,
and expelled them from their territory.
So they shook the dust from their feet in protest against them,
and went to Iconium.
The disciples were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit.

St. Barnabas was a Jew named Joseph, born in Cyprus. He sold his property and gave the proceeds to the Apostles, who gave him the name Barnabas, and lived in common with the earliest converts to Christianity in Jerusalem. He was sent to Antioch, Syria, to look into the community there, and brought Paul to Jerusalem from Tarsus.

St. Barnabas’ missionary journeys took him to Cyprus, Perga; Antioch in Pisidia, where he and St. Paul were so violently opposed by the Jews that they decided to preach to non-Jews, the Gentiles; Iconium and Lystra in Lycaonia, where he and St. Paul were stoned out of the city. When a dispute arose regarding the observance of the Jewish rites, Paul and Barnabas went to Jerusalem, where, at a council, it was decided that non-Jews did not have to be circumcised to be baptized.

Christian tradition holds that St. Barnabas was martyred, stoned to death, at Salamis, Cyprus, in 61 AD. He is traditionally identified as the founder of the Cypriot Orthodox Church. St. Barnabas’ feast day is June 11.

St. Paul was born Saul, c. AD 5, in the Mediterranean city of Tarsus (in today’s south-central Turkey). A Hebrew of the tribe of Benjamin, Saul’s father and grandfather were Pharisees. The Pharisees claimed prophetic or Mosaic authority for their interpretation of Jewish laws. Though a Jew, Saul was by privilege a Roman citizen.

An approximate contemporary of the twelve Apostles, Saul neither followed nor even saw Jesus preach. Instead, being a zealot for Jewish law and traditions, he saw Jesus’ disciples as enemy and dedicated himself to the persecution of the early Christians, most notably the killing by stoning of St. Stephen.

When Saul was in his late 20s, as he was approaching Damascus from Jerusalem on a mission to arrest all Christian Jews in Damascus, he and his company were struck by a great light and fell to the ground. Saul alone heard a voice: “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” Saul asked the voice to identify  himself. The voice answered, “Jesus of Nazareth, whom you persecute.” Trembling, Saul cried out, “Lord, what will you have me to do?” The resurrected Christ told Saul that in Damascus, he would learn what would be expected of him.

As Saul got off the ground, he realized he had become blind. He was led to Damascus, where he remained blind for three days, without eating or drinking.
Like all genuine encounters with God — including our own, should we be so graced — Saul’s dramatic encounter with the risen Christ changed him forever.

Now renamed Paul (which means “little”), not only did he stop persecuting Christians, he became a devoted follower of Christ, perhaps the most influential early Christian missionary. The first Christology — doctrines and theories of the meaning of the belief in Christ — was developed by Paul. More importantly, more than any of Christ’s disciples, it was Paul who fully understood that, by His incarnation, death and resurrection, Jesus replaced the convenant of the Old Testament with a new convenant. This was made clear by Christ Himself in the Last Supper:

“This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me” (1 Cor 11.25; cf. Mt 26.27-29; Mk 14.24, Lk 22.20; Heb 8.6, 9.15)

Henceforth, God’s chosen are all who “take up their cross” and follow Jesus the Christ. In other words, what once was a tribal religion — Judaism — is now the universal faith of Christianity. That is why St. Paul is called the “Apostle to the Gentiles.” Without the work of Paul, formerly the sinful Saul of Tarsus, you and I might not be Christians.

Paul was indefatigable in bringing the Word of Christ to both Jews and Gentiles, in a time when travel was arduous and dangerous. Through his missionary activity and writings he eventually transformed religious belief and philosophy around the Mediterranean Basin.

Paul was beaten, arrested and imprisoned on more than one occasion. Neither the Bible nor other sources say how or when Paul died, but Ignatius, probably around 110, wrote that Paul was martyred. According to Christian tradition, St. Paul was beheaded in Rome during the reign of Nero, on June 29, AD 67 — the same day as St. Peter was crucified upside down.

Shortly before he was martyred, St. Paul had written to St. Timothy these famous words:

“I am even now ready to be sacrificed, and the time of my dissolution is at hand. I have fought a good fight; I have finished my course; I have kept the faith. As for the rest, there is laid up for me a crown of justice which the Lord, the just judge, will render to me in that day: and not only to me, but to them also that love His coming.”

In a powerful passage in his Letter to the Romans, St. Paul specifically addresses unbelieving Jews. His words should be a reminder to us that, however difficult, we are to pray for instead of curse them.

Romans 11:13-15, 29-32

Brothers and sisters:
I am speaking to you Gentiles.
Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles,
I glory in my ministry in order to make my race jealous
and thus save some of them.
For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world,
what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.
Just as you once disobeyed God
but have now received mercy because of their disobedience,
so they have now disobeyed in order that,
by virtue of the mercy shown to you,
they too may now receive mercy.
For God delivered all to disobedience,
that he might have mercy upon all.

Smash the Church and the Gospel spreads quicker

The demons that empowered the Bolsheviks still have one objective: Hurt the Lord by hurting His people


Newsweek: CHINA DEMOLISHES ANOTHER CHURCH, SPARKING FEARS OF CAMPAIGN AGAINST CHRISTIANITY

by Christina Zhao – 01/11/2018

“The Golden Lampstand, a well-known Evangelical megachurch in the city of Linfen, Shanxi province, was dramatically demolished with explosives on Tuesday…”

“Last December, the only Catholic Church in Zhifang, a village near Shaanxi, was destroyed for no apparent reason, 20 years after it opened…”

Read article at https://www.newsweek.com/china-demolishes-another-church-sparking-fears-campaign-against-christianity-777931


As cunning as the devil’s minions are, they are too self deceived to learn that this tactic fails every time

  • Jesus crucified – Result: a new and better Covenant
  • Jerusalem Church crushed – Result: gospel spreads through all Judea and Samaria
  • Jews oppress Paul –  Result: Paul spreads gospel to Rome

Moving forward we see the same principle

China strikes the church, thinking this will break them. Real result, Christians meet quietly in very small numbers, and many more are converted. Why? Because the message spreads much better in quiet earnest conversations and prayers than in big meetings. People aren’t dazzled into the kingdom by massive meetings, they are loved into the family God one at a time.

We see the same devils attempting to move into position the crush the church in America

The LGBT movement is trying to make it a crime to use the wrong gender pronoun. They are still trying to set up bakers in positions where they end up crossing the law when their conscience forbids working for gay weddings.

And the satanic principalities of the Bolsheviks 100 years ago are plainly at work in AOC and Bernie Sanders today, with the same genocidal intent.

And let’s not even waste time on the subject of Fake News.

Last night my dreams troubled me 

As I searched my thoughts for help I remembered a scripture that has brought me peace on many dark nights during the past 40+ years of my christian walk, and it worked for me this morning.

Romans 8:35-38 answers these threats with comfort and encouragement: 

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

‘For your sake we face death all day long; 
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’ 

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,  neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

PEACE

Rabbi Yisrael Ariel declares Jewish holy war against Christians & Muslims

Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar recently declared, “This is not going to be country of white people”. Meanwhile, Muslim children in Philadelphia sing songs about torturing, killing, and chopping off the heads of their enemies.

But it’s not just Muslims who are bent on killing Christians.

Yisrael Ariel, 80, the former chief rabbi of the Israeli settlement in the Sinai Peninsula during the years when the Sinai was controlled by Israel, is the founder of the Temple Institute, an organization in Israel aimed at reinstating animal sacrificial worship and building the third Jewish temple on the Temple Mount that is currently occupied by the Islamic mosque, Dome of the Rock. Ariel is also involved in the effort to revive the Sanhedrin — a national rabbinical court of Jewish law in Israel.

If you think the Muslim jihad or holy war against infidels is bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

On September 9, 2015, in Jerusalem, Yisrael Ariel was recorded as declaring that the whole world must be brought under the Sanhedrin rule of the Seven Noahide Laws, by war. Males who refuse to follow the Seven Laws — Christians and Muslims — will be killed, until “there is no more Christianity, no more Islam.”

Below are quotes from Rabbi Ariel’s talk:

“What power does the Sanhedrin have with respect to the other nations of the world?…. Maimonides [a Jewish rabbi of the Middle Ages] says that they must agree to follow the Seven Noahide Laws.”

Just as there is a commandment to conquer the land of Israel, there is a commandment to fight sanctioned laws…. Who makes the decision to embark on a sanctioned war? King David asks the Sanhedrin!…. Maimonides says that King David went to the Sanhedrin and asked them if he could go out and conquer. Everything that David did was sanctioned by the High Court…. Then he [David] went out to conquer Northern Syria and Aleppo….”

Non-Jews who do not follow the seven Noahide Laws, such as ‘Thou shalt not kill’ and ‘Thou shalt not steal’, etc., you proclaim peace to them, meaning, you ask them ‘Do you follow the seven laws?’. If so, we will allow you to live. If not, you kill all of their males, by sword. You only leave the women…. They must all agree to follow the seven Laws. And that is how you impose the seven Laws on that city.

Someone just said: ‘We don’t have the might to fight.’ But who decides if we have might or not? God! He gives you the might to raise an army. Therefore, he is the one who commanded [us] to go from city to city, to conquer them and to impose the seven Laws [throughout] the world. That is the job of the [Jewish] messiah, among others….

We will conquer Iraq, Turkey…. We will get to Iran too. We will impose the seven Noahide Laws on all these places. But installing does not mean with courts! Rather, it means with war! But not to just kill. Just the opposite. You say ‘I call upon you in peace.’ If they raise the flag [of surrender] and say, ‘From now on, there is no more Christianity, no more Islam. The mosques and the Christian spires and their crosses come down, from now on we follow the seven Noahide Laws.’ This is a task of the messiah, to bring the entire world to the seven Laws, for real….

Therefore, Maimonides says that if you see a person in the street who does not follow the seven Laws…if you have the might, you have to kill him. If you catch [U.S. President] Obama on the street and you know that he does not follow the seven Laws, etc., you are commanded to kill him…and the sooner the better….

If someone threatens you, to ruin you, to kill you, you kill him first. But there are numerous levels to the snake, and you have to go level by level…. May we all merit to follow the commandments, and to see the messiah follow these commandments.”
