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.

"...count it all joy when you fall into various trials,  knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." James 1:2-4

 

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

 

Ebola. Ebola in the air? A nightmare that could happen: "...some of the nation's top infectious disease experts worry that this deadly virus could mutate and be transmitted just by a cough or a sneeze. 'It's the single greatest concern I've ever had in my 40-year public health career,' said Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. 'I can't imagine anything in my career -- and this includes HIV -- that would be more devastating to the world than a respiratory transmissible Ebola virus.'" See Ebola, Death & "The State of the World"

 

Corruption. UNFPA: Children Have Right to Sex, Drugs, Abortion to Reduce Population: "There are more young people in the world now than ever before. According to the United Nations Population Fund’s latest report, this represents an unprecedented opportunity for progress, but only if future generations are smaller. UNFPA’s prescription to ensure a 'demographic dividend' includes freely available abortion for adolescents, removing age of consent, drug and prostitution laws, and reduced parental involvement in the sexual formation of their children.

     “[Y]oung people require a wide range of sexual and reproductive health services, including . . . safe abortion care,” says the 2014 State of World Population."

 

Hatred.  Germany warns anti-semitism rising on back of Middle East violence: "Germany's foreign minister said at an international conference on anti-semitism on Thursday that 'hatred of Jews' was on the rise once more in his country and across Europe, fuelled by spiraling violence in the Middle East.

     "Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Germany's Jews were subjected to threats and attacks at pro-Palestinian demonstrations, and the conflict between Israel in Gaza must not be used as justification for an anti-semitic behaviour. ... 'Bold and brutal anti-semitism has shown its ugly face again..."

 

Lawlessness.  German Muslims Are Robbing Churches To Support ISIS: "It began nearly a year ago, on the weekend after Christmas. On Saturday night, unidentified individuals broke into a church in the Cologne district of Porz-Urbach. They broke open the safe in the sacristy and got hold of the key to the church. They ended up stealing money from the collection boxes, liturgical vessels, bowls and a monstrance. They weren’t able to get their hands on the Christmas collect because it had already been removed from the church. In the following months, numerous churches in the greater Cologne area were broken into..."

 

Obama Tranforming America.  Nation braces for 'Emperor' Obama's amnesty: "Details of Obama’s directive, leaked to the press and a pro-amnesty group: • It will protect as many as 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation and grant them work permits and social security cards. • More than four million illegal immigrants who have been in the country for five years will be eligible, including parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. • 300,000 immigrants who arrived in the country before the age of 16 will be eligible. • Amnesty applicants will go through criminal and national security background checks. • They will be required to pay a fee and taxes (although most low-income earners receive tax credits.)

 

Opposing Tyranny.  ‘Open Rebellion’: Chaos if Republicans Don’t Withhold Funding for Obama Executive Amnesty: "Conservatives say that Republican leaders, including House Speaker John Boehner and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, will be 'complicit' in President Barack Obama’s planned executive amnesty if they don’t pull out all the stops to block him."

 

Opposing Tyranny.  Sheriffs against amnesty to march on Washington: "Sheriffs around the country are planning to march on the nation’s capital, hoping to send a message to President Obama and Congress that they oppose amnesty for illegal immigrants. The Dec. 10 rally in Washington, D.C., is being organized by two sheriffs from Massachusetts.... They have challenged America’s other sheriffs, asking for at least 200 of them to join in paying a visit to the Capitol to make a stand against amnesty and plead for Congress and the president to secure the border. More than 20 have already signed up to participate.... The march will culminate in a meeting with Republican leaders at the Capitol building regarding possible legislation to secure the border 'once and for all.'”

 

Our God reigns - no matter what lies ahead!  The planned destruction of America: "...The other world is what is really taking place behind the scenes. The things we aren’t supposed to know, as knowing would disrupt the plans of globalists and expose their lies.... We must also fully understand the objective, which involves the destruction of the U.S. as a Constitutional Republic, for it is the sovereignty and power of the United States that is the biggest impediment in their way of fully achieving their goals.  ...they will cause the greatest transfer of wealth and power ever seen in the modern world....

     "The end-game objective, is... the creation of a one world system of government and a one world currency. It is... the implementation of a New World Order as spoken by many leaders, both foreign and domestic, including the most memorable speech by George Herbert Walker Bush on September 11, 1990." See The emerging New World Order

 

Unbiblical Compromise.  Rick Warren builds bridge to Muslims: "The Rev. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest and one of America's most influential Christian leaders, has embarked on an effort to heal divisions between evangelical Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California mosques and proposing a set of theological principles that includes acknowledging that Christians and Muslims worship the same God." See Heresy in High Places

 

Rage. The Ferguson Days of Rage: "This week, America held its collective breath as it waited on the grand jury indictment verdict for Officer Darren Wilson. Wilson, you’ll recall, had the misfortune to run into 6’5″, 289-lb. Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man who had just finished strong-arm robbing a convenience store. Wilson pulled Brown over as he and his accomplice walked in the middle of the street; all available evidence shows that Brown then pushed himself through the driver’s side window, punched Wilson, went for his gun, was shot in the hand, ran, turned around, charged Wilson, and was shot to death. But that doesn’t matter..."

 

History. World War Two - How a Global Elite controlled Both Sides: "...many anomalies (strange or inconsistent events) in the course of World War Two, which cannot be explained by conventional historical analysis, can be fully understood if we recognize that the same people controlled both sides. These people are the Global Elite or Illuminati. They brought about and controlled the First and Second World Wars and, after a period of consolidation, are on the point of starting the final phase of their plan for global reconstruction, namely World War III. Following the horrors of that awful event they intend to impose their New World Order.

     "Why did Hitler order a pause at Dunkirk, letting the British escape? ... The German generals, awaiting approval to launch a full-scale assault, were horrified. As military blunders go, this was one simply inexplicable by conventional standards.

     "The truth, however, is very straight forward. The collapse of Britain was not part of the plan. The Global Elite were aiming, rather, to create upheaval in Eastern Europe, and to demoralise France and destabilize Germany so that the entire region could be remoulded into a ‘united states’ of Europe – the European Union." See Purging the Memory of our Christian Roots

 

Obama's Internet Rules. Obama calls for strict regulation of Internet providers in intense push for net neutrality laws: "The President on Monday urged the Federal Communications Commission to ban arrangements that would allow companies to pay providers for speedier delivery of their content, saying that there shouldn't be ‘fast lanes’ on the Internet.... FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, an Obama friend and former financial supporter, has floated rules that would allow companies to pay to get priority for their content. The proposal, released by the agency in May, drew 4 million comments.... 

     "Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the top Republican on the Senate Commerce Committee, which oversees the FCC, said Obama’s approach would 'stifle our nation’s dynamic and robust Internet sector with rules written nearly 80 years ago for plain old telephone service.'"

 

Migration. Experts: Scope of Obama's Amnesty Order Would Be Unprecedented: "As early as next week, President Barack Obama is expected to issue an executive order to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, a use of power that would be unprecedented in U.S. history.... But Obama's intent to bypass Congress and make new laws could be an outright violation of his constitutional oath to 'take care that the laws be faithfully executed,' the Post said....

    'It is expected that Obama's next step will be to expand the policy to include the parents of child immigrants, giving permission to as many as 6 million undocumented immigrants to temporarily stay in the country and be protected from the threat of deportation."

 

Police State & Tyranny. Nazis demand Jews' addresses: Extreme political party in Germany evoke chilling memories of people-hunting in 1930s: "A neo-Nazi party has demanded to know where all Jews in the city of Dortmund live in a chilling echo of the build-up to the Holocaust. Die Rechte... wrote to mayor Ullrich Sierau... seeking to know how many Jews live in and around the town, and their addresses. He asked that the information be supplied at a meeting of the council in the town hall on Wednesday night. 'The demand was refused.'..." See Spiritual Warfare

 

Genocide?  Population reduction white paper argues that the killing of 2 billion people still isn't enough: "...uber-left wing academics who view environmentalism as a religion and take on blind faith that the world is being destroyed by the infestation of human beings have long considered and discussed how best to achieve 'population control' and even population reduction.

     "Most have been careful not to actually state what it is they would really like to see: the mass murder of billions of people, so they could 'save' the planet through avoidance of destruction by humans. But even a reasonably astute observer can see through the veneer of their 'concern' and figure out what they really want...

     "'The planet's large, growing, and overconsuming human population, especially the increasing affluent component, is rapidly eroding many of the Earth's natural ecosystems. '...there are no easy ways to change the broad trends of human population size this century. Except, perhaps, some sort of mass casualty/pandemic/world war?'" See Green Lies and Amazing Truths

 

Obama's Executive Orders:  Here Comes First-Class Citizenship Under Obama-Declared “DREAMER Amnesty”: "In a little reported appearance before the Latin-American Development Bank on Friday, Vice President Biden began opening the floodgates of illegal immigration Barack Obama intends to cause with his much-touted series of executive orders aimed at opening wide the U.S. border with Mexico.

     "Biden announced the Obama administration plans to extend refugee status to Central American children, in a program that would extend the protection of international law to the next wave of anticipated immigration from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala....

     "Immediately, the front page of newspapers in Guatemala declared minors in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras will receive refugee status in the United States starting next month. This is an Obama plan that has been long in the works." See The UN Plan for Global Migration

"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
