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.

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

We believe...
      
- in the One almighty God, who has revealed Himself through His Word as Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.  He tells us:
 
"My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled....

John 14:27

"Pray for God's people around the world! The sobering links below show the rapid transformation of our nation and its values. As in Europe,  Christian faith is  fading fast and God's Word is banned from most of our public schools. Jews and Christians are persecuted in many parts of the world. But in the midst of these changes, our God still reigns! "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord!" As the spiritual war intensifies, may He draw us ever closer to Himself!

 

Avoid War?  Netanyahu, Churchill and Congress: Trying to Avert War: "There are striking similarities between the objectives of Churchill's speech nearly 75 years ago and Netanyahu's today; both with no less purpose than to avert global conflagration. And, like Churchill's in the 1930s, Netanyahu's is the lone voice among world leaders today.

     "There is no doubt abut Iran's intent. It has been described as a nuclear Auschwitz. Israel is not the only target of Iranian violence. Iran has long been making good on its promises to mobilize Islamic forces against the US, as well as the UK and other American allies. ... 'It is not yet too late to prevent Iran from arming itself with nuclear weapons.'" See Spiritual Warfare

 

No Conscience? Being "Protected" in Turkey: "You wonder why rape has become a malady in Turkey? Ask your government deputy and he will explain: Popular Turkish soap operas! ... Imagine a country where taking public transport or merely going to school (especially for young women) or playing with snowballs in the street can be categorized as sports of extreme danger." See  Who shapes our conscience?

 

Corrupting America & the World. Obama Task Force on New Americans: Changing America by ‘seeding’ migrants in towns everywhere: "Obama is changing America by changing the people! You might even say he is 'colonizing' America!...

    "The task force was created in November.... Now they are getting to work under the guidance of none-other than former La Raza.... Note that they wanted to keep whatever was said from the press: “Note to the media: This engagement is not for press purposes.'

    "Obama and his cabal of Open Borders agitators are working to further blur definitions involving categories of legal immigration (eg refugees) and illegal aliens.  ...the task force seeking to change America wants to transform all of the newly amnestied aliens into 'refugees.'... Because refugees have all forms of welfare (including health care) available to them while other classes of immigrants (both legal and illegal do not) and they are on a fast track to citizenship."

 

Obama. Obama Warns Congress He Will Veto Legislation Against Iran Deal: "In response to Obama’s decision to veto the bill, Senator Corker responded that it was 'disappointing that the president feels he is the only one who speaks for the citizens of our country.' Obama’s announcement comes during a critical moment of negotiations between Iran and Western powers.

    "On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to address a joint session of Congress in what has become a controversial speech on the dangers of a nuclear Iran. The prime minister said on Saturday prior to this departure to the US that, 'As Prime Minister of Israel, it is my obligation to see to the security of Israel; therefore, we strongly oppose the agreement being formulated with Iran and the major powers, which could endanger our very existence.' See Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

 

Faith.  The Victory of the Cross: "Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!" Fanny Crosby, who wrote that joyful hymn, was truly blessed with an unwavering confidence in God's loving grace! Born into a humble family in 1820, she became totally blind through a medical error six weeks later.... When only eight years old she wrote,

'O what a happy soul am I! Although I cannot see,

I am resolved that in this world, contented I will be.'

"Fanny shared her joy through hundreds of hymns sung in churches throughout the English-speaking world. 'I thank Him for the dispensation [of blindness],' she wrote one day. 'I might not have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things about me."

Persecution. Syria: 72 Christian families kidnapped; More under siege by IS: "...sources from Syria’s embattled Hassaka province confirmed Tuesday that at least 72 Assyrian Christian families - thought to be around 200 people - from three villages have been captured by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS). ... An additional 50 or more families are still under siege in Tel Shamiram village, surrounded by IS fighters.

    "On Monday Kurdish fighters from Syria’s Democratic Union Party (PYD) took back control of Toma Yelda, an important hill on the battlefront. However, the military struggle for Tel Shamiram is continuing." See Persecution Scriptures

 

Revolution.  ISIS’ Jihadi John Hostage Beheader is a Rich Kid from London: "...he does fit the profile of Muslim terrorist leaders. They tend to be university grads, well-educated and from higher class families that are well connected in their part of the world. That’s actually why they become terrorists. It’s a class thing....

    "Like a lot of ISIS, he’s a Muslim living in the West who wants to carve out a caliphate for the Master Race while murdering Westerners. 'This isn’t about deprivation. It’s about oppression. It’s about the desire of Muslims like Mohammed to oppress non-Muslims." See  The Muslim Brotherhood plots

 

Global Management.  Clintons’ foundation has raised nearly $2 billion — and some key questions: "Since its creation in 2001, the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has raised close to $2 billion from a vast global network that includes corporate titans, political donors, foreign governments and other wealthy interests....

    "...many of the foundation’s biggest donors are foreigners who are legally barred from giving to U.S. political candidates. A third of foundation donors who have given more than $1 million are foreign governments or other entities based outside the United States, and foreign donors make up more than half of those who have given more than $5 million." See The emerging New World Order

 

Law.  Sheriff Joe warns amnesty judge on 'defiant' Obama: “Several reports indicate that the executive branch under the Obama administration has not complied with this court’s temporary injunction, but continues full-speed to implement a grant of amnesty and related benefits to approximately 5 million citizens of foreign countries who are illegally in the United States....

      "'In short,' Klayman told the court, 'President Obama’s defiant pledge in Miami, Florida, on February 25, 2015, to move forward aggressively with implementation of his deferred action amnesty by executive over-reach… more than suggests that the Obama administration is continuing to implement the executive action amnesty in defiance of the court’s temporary injunction." See From Freedom to Servitude: The Power and Perversions of Law

 

Genocide. The Massacre of the Assyrian Christians.... ISIS Kidnaps 117 Christians in Syria while Christian fighters tried to defend them ran out of ammunition because they had no help from Western Powers: "Obama instead is aiding The Free Syrian Army working with Turkey to train 5000 Islamist fighters in order to oust Bashar Al-Assad. Yet.. [only].the Syrian army whom Obama wants to end has offered assistance.... The remaining inhabitants of these villages, some 3000, have now been evacuated". See GENOCIDE - Prevention, Sovereignty & Human Nature

 

Crisis.  Pentagon admits no strategy to blunt ISIS expansion: "The Pentagon admits it does not have a military strategy to blunt the spread of ISIS beyond its self-proclaimed caliphate in portions of Syria and Iraq. The jihadist movement now has pledges of allegiance from groups with a presence in 12 countries, from the Middle East, to North Africa to Central and Southeast Asia."

 

Signs of the Times.  What’s brewing behind Israel-US tensions: "There is estimation in the Obama Administration that, if a Herzog/Livni government is formed in Israel, it will dance to Obama’s tune. But if Bibi retains control, the entire Obama Middle East policy is in ruins....

     "Obama is incredulously working toward introducing Iran as a regional strategic ally in the war against Islamic State (although you will never hear Obama or Kerry call this terror army by that name)." See One Country and Three Civilizations

 

Obama.  Arabs: Why is Obama Siding with Supporters of Terrorism? "The Egyptians are furious with U.S. President Barack Obama for meeting in the White House this week with the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani. They say that the Obama Administration has once again turned its back on moderate Arabs and Muslims by endorsing those who support and fund Islamic terror groups."

 

Persecution.  ISIS Captures Christians: Piece by piece, Middle Eastern Christianity is being shattered: "Still reeling from last week’s news of the Islamist beheading of 21 Coptic Christian migrant workers in Libya, Middle Eastern Christians were again targeted by a large scale Islamist terror attack with thousands of victims Monday, in Syria.

      "Islamic State jihadists laid siege to a string of Christian Assyrian villages, along the Khabour river, in northeastern Syria, kidnapping or killing scores of residents. Those abducted are now in imminent peril and thousands more who were expelled have joined the ranks of mendicant displaced. Piece by piece, Middle Eastern Christianity is being shattered." See A Taste of Blood: Human nature without a moral conscience!

 

Revolution.  Obama’s coming caliphate crusade in North America: "Obama’s dream is everyone else’s waking nightmare, the takeover of North America by caliphate-seeking jihadists.... People who can’t allow themselves to believe that Obama doesn’t love America would never be ready to believe that Obama was brought into power for the express purpose to hand the coveted North America kingdom over to the jihadists. North America is new ground in a new world crusade just like the one that’s been going on largely uninterrupted for centuries." See The fall and rise of human violence

 

War.  Jordan furious over Pentagon leak on secret anti-Islamic State training camp: "The Pentagon let slip that one of its training camps to help fight Islamic State terrorists is in Jordan — information the pro-U.S. kingdom had specifically requested be kept private, and the latest gaffe in a series of sensitive leaks coming out of the Department of Defense. In In order to hide its flub, which was first announced to reporters during a briefing last week, the Pentagon has scrubbed its public transcripts of any mention of the training camp."

 

Signs of the Times. Israel approves $46 million plan to absorb all European Jews following Muslim terror attacks: "The Israeli cabinet on Sunday approved a $46 million plan to finance the arrival of thousands of Jewish people expected to immigrate from Europe, following a number of anti-Semitic attacks on the continent in recent months. "Announced just hours after a gunman in Copenhagen, Denmark, fatally shot a man outside a synagogue as part of twin terrorist attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country was ready to welcome Jews 'home.'” See Critical Security Needs of Israel

"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
