"My Goal is God Himself. . . At any cost, dear Lord, by any road."

See The Nature and Tactics of Satan

Migration or Invasion?  Doctor: Gov’t ‘Tight-Lipped’ on Respiratory Virus, May be From Illegals: "When asked whether illegal immigrant children who have been sent to various locations around the country could be the cause of the virus, she responded 'Yes, they could be. We don’t know for sure the government is being real tight-lipped about this, and it only takes one infected child to infect the whole classroom.'...

     "'Should we be [looking at] the virus to see whether it’s like what’s been found in some of these countries that are just sending waves of children across our border and they haven’t been quarantined long enough to make sure they’re not sick?'

     "She also spoke about the risks posed by drug resistant tuberculosis, saying 'virtually all of the cases of drug resistant TB that have been discovered in the United States are in foreign born individuals... It is a public health nightmare to just have one of these cases in your community because the person needs to be quarantined....”

 

Rage & Rules:  Australia ISIS Beheading Order: “Kill a Random Kaffir”: "To the Muslim the Kaffir, the non-Muslim, is the lowest of all creatures. ... The entire narrative of Islam was written in the blood of non-Muslims who had to be killed, subjugated and converted for Islam to spread. ISIS is carrying on that bloody work. Not just in Iraq, but also in Australia.

     "Within seven months they were talking about detonating a car bomb in Australia, potentially killing dozens. And then, on Tuesday night, the gruesome order came through from the Middle East: ...go out on the streets of Sydney and kill 'a random kaffir (non-­believer'."

 

Military?  It’s Not Just The Police – The Feds Are Also Militarizing Public Schools With Grenade Launchers, M16s & Tanks: "...many of of the nation’s police departments have been quietly, but consistently, militarizing over the past couple of decades. It’s one thing to intellectually understand that this has happened, it’s quite another to see cops deploy tanks and point sniper rifles at peacefully protesting U.S. citizens....

     "The program was originated in the late 1990′s under the National Defense Authorization Act of 1997 (recall that the NDAA is also being used to allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens without trial).... The Wall Street Journal reports that: 'A federal program that has drawn criticism in recent weeks for supplying surplus military gear to local police has also provided high-powered rifles, armored vehicles and other equipment to police at public schools, some of whom were unprepared for what they were getting.'...

      "The Los Angeles Unified School District stocked up on grenade launchers, M16 rifles and even a multi-ton armored vehicle from the program.... In July, the district received a massive MRAP armored vehicle. Mr. Zipperman said his department thought it could be useful for evacuations and to save lives in a “sustained incident.”

 

Migration. U.N. to dump flood of Muslim refugees on U.S. 'Several thousand in the pipeline, and that number will go up' : "In February, the State Department moved to ease the rules that protect the U.S. from accepting refugees with potential ties to terrorist organizations. The rules were seen as 'too strict' by the refugee-resettlement groups that lobby Congress and the administration to continuously let in more Muslims from the war-torn Middle East....

     "The United Nations high commissioner for refugees just this year started referring Syrian refugees to the United States for processing,” said Marie Harf. 'Obviously, we have several thousand in the pipeline, and that number will continue to go up.' 'Once the refugees are relocated to an American city, they are quickly connected to an array of taxpayer-funded social services, including Medicaid, food stamps and subsidized housing.

     "Interpreters and tutors are often provided to help bridge the language gap that refugee children will find in local public schools....

     "The average Somali couple in Minnesota, for example, has six children....

     "Pamela Geller... said the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, or OIC, which is comprised of 56 Muslim countries and the Palestinian Authority, makes up the largest voting bloc at the U.N. General Assembly."

 

Corruption. Dozens of Children Dead After UN Gives Tainted Vaccine in “Rebel” Held Syria: "A United Nations sponsored measles vaccine program in northern Syria resulted in 36 children suffering 'excruciating deaths,' according to doctors in the area held by U.S. and Saudi mercenaries who are administering the program. Infants given the poisoned vaccine experienced rapidly falling heart rates and turned blue.

      "Anti-Assad activists blamed the Syrian government and accused it of spiking the vaccines with cyanide. The mercenaries previously accused the Syrian government of launching a chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta. It was later discovered the so-called [Syrian Rebels supported by Obama] had in fact launched the attack."

[From 2012] Obama's loyalty to Syrian Rebels.  Syrian Rebels: 'When We Finish With Assad, We Will Fight the U.S.': "...the militants now on the front lines of the rebel uprising in Syria  supported by the Obama administration and other western powers – are Al-Qaeda terrorists who killed U.S. troops in Iraq and openly espouse their desire to 'fight the U.S.' after they topple Bashar Al-Assad....

     "Extremist militants have also ransacked Christian churches and carried out sectarian beheadings. ...Syrian rebels were shown on camera proudly burning U.S. flags on two separate occasions recently. ...Syrian rebel fighters are routinely photographed wearing the Al-Qaeda motif." See A Taste of Blood: Human nature without a moral conscience!

 

Shrinking U.S. Armies!  (Slow to open) Sending Military to Fight Ebola "Misuse of Soldiers:" “The U.S. military does not have specific training regarding how to handle a medical emergency like Ebola,' he said. 'It’s rather obvious there is a great risk the U.S. military going into Liberia to fight Ebola will end up getting infected themselves.”

      “If military are required to combat the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, then the first troops that should be involved are the 6,000 United Nations peacekeeping forces that are already in the country.”

 

Corruption. New Bombshell Report Proves Hillary Clinton Hid Important Benghazi Information!

Health. Obama Signs Executive Order to Detain Americans With ‘Respiratory Illnesses: "President Barack Obama has signed an amendment to an executive order that would allow him to mandate the apprehension and detention of Americans who merely show signs of 'respiratory illness.' ...

      "...the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has measures in place for dealing with an outbreak of a communicable disease which allow for the quarantine of 'well persons' who 'do not show symptoms' of the disease.

     "...under the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act, public health authorities and governors would be given expanded police powers to seize control of communications devices, public and private property, as well as a host of other draconian measures in the event of a public health emergency. When the legislation was introduced, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons warned that it 'could turn governors into dictators.'”

 

Patent on Ebola!  Why does the CDC own a patent on Ebola 'invention?' "The U.S. Centers for Disease Control owns a patent on a particular strain of Ebola known as 'EboBun.'... The patent summary says, 'The invention provides the isolated human Ebola (hEbola) viruses denoted as Bundibugyo (EboBun) deposited with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention... on November 26, 2007.'"

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness.... Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!" Isaiah 5:20-21

"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
