"Please pray for God's embattled people - especially in Syria, Iraq, Israel and West Africa!

Faith amidst Terror. Video: Faith at the Sight of Terror: "Hours after Hamas/Palestinian terrorists killed a baby at this very spot, Torah students sing that the Jewish nation lives and that we have no one to rely on but Our Father in Heaven."


Deception?  DoD Admission: Only One Plane Available To Transport Infected Soldiers Out of Africa, One at a Time, Four Per Week: "The US Defense Department will only have the capability to fly four service members out of Africa per week should they contract the deadly Ebola virus, a Major General said at a meeting today regarding the military’s response to the epidemic.

     "...Maj. Gen. James Lariviere told North Carolina Congressman Patrick McHenry that the US plans to have 'in the vicinity of 3,000” troops in Africa by the end of the year.'

     " the event that soldiers begin contracting the virus, Maj. Gen. Lariviere admitted the military currently only has one plane capable of transporting symptomatic patients back to the US for treatment. 'So at current state, we can take less than 10 people out of country in a week’s time?” Rep. McHenry asks, to which Maj. Gen Lariviere replies, 'If they are symptomatic, yeah.' 'So this is not at all sufficient,' Rep. McHenry concludes."  


Ebola. Military Preps 30 Person Ebola "Quick Strike Team": "The Obama Administration has ordered the Department of Defense to form a 30-member military medical "quick strike team" that can deploy quickly -- within 72 hours -- to any new outbreaks of Ebola in the U.S., reports have said. The team will consist of five physicians, 20 nurses and five trainees, according to reports, and will be tasked with providing "direct treatment to Ebola patients inside the United States,' according to CNN."


Ebola.  Obama brings in 1,900 people from another Ebola nation: "Since an outbreak of Ebola hit the Democratic Republic of the Congo in July, the Obama administration has brought into the U.S. at least 1,900 refugees from the disease-stricken nation.... The strain of Ebola found in the Congo is slightly different from the virus that has been ravaging West Africa....

     "The U.S. refugee program this year is on pace to resettle 70,000 citizens, including a limit for the fiscal year of 2014 of 14,000 from Africa, with the State Department giving priority to Congolese refugees....

     "The Congo has had its own outbreak of Ebola that started in late-July...."


Ebola. Legendary virologist Dr. Jahrling warns today's Ebola strain appears to be far more infectious than any previous Ebola: "An expert scientist from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) has publicly warned that the Ebola strain currently in circulation appears to be far more virulent and infectious than previous strains. Dr. Peter Jahrling has been on the ground in the Liberian capital of Monrovia, studying the disease with a team of researchers.... Dr. Jahrling believes that this strain of Ebola is not only more deadly than other strains but also mutating at an alarming rate. More of the virus is infecting patients, and it appears to be advancing and spreading more rapidly than usual....

     "US provides lame excuses for not imposing West African travel bans...

     "Dr. Jahrling's chilling remarks come as countries throughout Africa close their borders and impose tighter restrictions on air travel. The U.S. government is also reluctantly jumping onboard, recently announcing travel guidelines that will allow West African travelers into the country only if they pass through one of five designated airports."

Perverting knowledge. Inventor of internet warns of corporate-government takeover and the suppression of free speech: "'If a company can control your access to the Internet, if they can control which websites they go to, then they have tremendous control over your life,' Berners-Lee, 59, said... 'If a Government can block you going to, for example, the opposition's political pages, then they can give you a blinkered view of reality to keep themselves in power..."


Mind Control. Christian school told to have Muslim imam lead assemblies: "Britain’s official education inspector has informed an independent Christian school that it is out of step with 'British values' prescribed by the government and must invite someone from another faith, such as a Muslim imam, to lead assemblies or it risks being closed.

     "The threat comes amid a series of new school inspections imposed by the government in response to a 'Trojan horse' scandal in which several public schools in Birmingham, England, were taken over by Muslim managers who imposed Islamic education standards.... The Christian Institute, which is planning a legal challenge to the regulations, said the school was told by Ofsted 'to invite a leader from another religion, such as an imam, to lead assemblies." See Legalizing Mind Control


Mind Control.  Public school 'purges' Christian authors from library-library: "A charter school in Southern California is facing the threat of a lawsuit for 'purging' Christian books from its library. Parents contacted the Pacific Justice Institute after Springs Charter School system Supt. Kathleen Hermsmeyer declared the library would not be allowed to carry 'sectarian' materials. ...among the books was 'The Hiding Place,' the story of Corrie ten Boom, a Dutch woman sent to a prison camp by the Nazis of World War II for helping Jews escape."

Ebola & Economy.  Ebola is an Economic Catastrophe: "I had already been booked for weeks as the keynote speaker for an event in Dallas in early November. Then came the announcement that Thomas Duncan was being treated for Ebola in a Dallas hospital. Within days of this announcement, I got the phone call that the event I was speaking at was cancelled, because so many attendees refused to travel to Dallas. Many who cancelled called it 'the epicenter of Ebola in the United States.' They were all frightened....

     "The implications are enormous. The entire U.S. economy could suffer what Dallas is already experiencing -- a devastating decline in travel and commerce."

Is our government deceiving us?  ALERT: U.S. Army researchers at USAMRIID confirm Ebola Variant was airborne in 1990: "U.S. Army virologists working at USAMRIID (U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases) [1] confirmed in 1990 that a strain of Ebola was airborne and could spread through air ducts, resembling the contagiousness of the flu."


Ebola & How to Shrink the US Army.  Soldiers headed to West Africa left hanging out to dry: "Our troops deserve nothing but the best. But for those traveling to West Africa, that’s not what they’re getting.... Troops from the 101st Airborne Division leading the military response to Ebola in West Africa will only need gloves and masks to protect themselves from the deadly virus, so said Gen. David Rodriguez....

     "...the statement that any service member who becomes ill 'will be flown home immediately for treatment' contradicts prior statements put out by the Department of Defense. ... [But] U.S. military hospitals that will admit potentially infected troops have not yet been identified. So they will not be flown home immediately for treatment.... So we’re sending troops to West Africa without proper protection and there is no concrete plan in place for getting them the care they will need should they fall ill.”


Economy. 19 Very Surprising Facts About The Messed Up State Of The U.S. Economy: " Barack Obama and the Federal Reserve are lying to you. The 'economic recovery' that we all keep hearing about is mostly just a mirage. The percentage of Americans that are employed has barely budged since the depths of the last recession, the labor force participation rate is at a 36 year low, the overall rate of homeownership is the lowest that it has been in nearly 20 years and approximately 49 percent of all Americans are financially dependent on the government at this point."


Ebola. The Real Ebola Panic: Denialism Triggering Mass of Unreported Cases in Africa: "As President Obama readies a post-election immigration plan expected to clear a path for citizenship for millions of illegals, his immigration czar on Tuesday said that the border is bracing for another surge of undocumented children, raising this year’s wave across the southern border to some 130,000.

     "Noting this year’s historic wave of immigrants across the Mexico-U.S. border, Rodriguez said, 'In order to process individuals more efficiently at the border, the unaccompanied children presenting claims, we have had to redeploy, we’re also hiring more asylum officers.' He added, 'We do have a lot of work to catch up.'”


War & Deception?  U.S. Humanitarian Aid Going to ISIS: "While U.S. warplanes strike at the militants of the so-called Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq, truckloads of U.S. and Western aid has been flowing into territory controlled by the jihadists, assisting them to build their terror-inspiring 'caliphate.'....

     "But there is no evidence that the militants of the Islamic State, widely known as ISIS or ISIL, feel any sense of disgrace or indignity (and certainly not gratitude) receiving charity from their foes. Quite the reverse, the aid convoys have to pay off ISIS emirs (leaders) for the convoys to enter the eastern Syrian extremist strongholds of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor, providing yet another income stream for ISIS militants, who are funding themselves from oil smuggling, extortion, and the sale of whatever they can loot, including rare antiquities from museums and archaeological sites." See  The emerging New World Order


War & Deception?  U.S. unwittingly arms ISIS terrorists with cache of weapons and ammo: "In the Obama administration's effort to assist the Kurds fight back against the onslaught of the Islamic State of Irag and Syria (ISIS) terrorist paramilitary, a number of military weapons were mistakenly delivered to ISIS on Monday by the U.S., according to a counterterrorism source." [Was it really a mistake? Obama has shown his support of many murderous rebel groups in Syria, Libya, etc. Do you wonder what his real goal is?] See  Reinventing the World

"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
