     Note from Berit:  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.

Please pray for

Oswald Chambers:  "My relationship to God embraces every faculty. I am to love Him with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind, and all my strength - every detail is instinct with devotion to Him. . . .   Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands . . . began to wash the disciples feet."

So, "...let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus... who for the joy set before Him endured the cross..." Hebrews 12:1-2


Please pray for God's people in the Middle East!


Lawlessness.  German asylum centers: Muslim migrants tear up Bibles, assault Christians, sexually abuse women and children, beat up gays: "... the violence toward ethnic minorities, religious minorities and women continues to skyrocket across German asylum centres.... In Stuttgart a case of abuse toward an Assyrian Christian by a Muslim roommate led to a petition for separate housing that was signed by over 17,000 people online. (apparently Christians are forced to take in Muslims migrants).

     "Yazidi girls who were used as sex slaves by the Islamic State are housed in secret locations in Germany so as not to attract unwanted attention from migrants sympathetic to the Islamic State..." See The fall and rise of human violence


Spiritual Warfare.  US Intel Chief: Islamic Terror Threat Biggest in History: "Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said February 9 the Sunni terrorist threat 'has been on an upward trajectory since the late 1970s'...'  ISIL will likely increase the pace and lethality of its transnational attacks.... It will purposely attempt to stroke sectarian conflict between Shia and Sunnis and between the West and Islam to create the chaotic environment in which it thrives..."  See Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!


War.  Iran-Backed Militias Lead Attacks on Christians in Baghdad: Radical militias with Iranian support are reportedly attacking Christian communities in Iraq, seizing property and sites of cultural interest.... 'According to leaders, the seizures have been carried out in the upscale regions of Baghdad, where militia men have forced entry into homes and businesses with falsified documents.... 'Iraq's Christians are considered to be one of the oldest Christian communities in the world." See Merging the Americas in a New Global Order


Control.  Putin's aim in Syria 'to destroy EU': "Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aim in launching an assault against the rebel stronghold of Aleppo, Syria, is not only to keep President Bashar al-Assad in power but to weaken Chancellor Angela Merkel in Germany by flooding Europe with millions more migrants this spring and summer."

Globalism.  Vladimir Putin and Henry Kissinger Meet To Discuss New World Order: "In this video Luke Rudkowski covers the important geopolitical meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and globalist henchman Henry Kissinger. We go into who Henry Kissinger is, the strings that he pulls geopolitically and the current escalating situation between the U.S. and Russia." See The U.N. Plan For Global Control: The Habitat II Agenda

Rage.  Germans in open revolt as they accuse Angela Merkel of treason and demand her resignation over her pro-Muslim Immigration policies: "Mass anti-Angela Merkel rally in Berlin turns violent as pro-migrant activists try to attack. The opposition group Alternative for Germany (AFD) has surged in popularity.... Furious Germans condemned Merkel, under banner 'Red Card for Merkel.'" See Agenda 21 - The U.N. Plan for your community

Spiritual Warfare.  NASA bans the word 'Jesus': "It was shocking to all of us and very frustrating,' NASA engineer Sophia Smith told me. NASA has a long history of respecting religious speech. Why wouldn’t they allow us to put the name Jesus in the announcement about our club?' Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s largest religious liberty law firms, threatened to file a federal lawsuit unless NASA apologizes and stops censoring the name ‘Jesus’." 

Control.  Dick Morris: Rupert Murdoch Calling Shots at Fox News, Pushing Rubio: "Fox News chief Roger Ailes has all but lost control of his cable network — with media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his family now calling the shots.... Roger Ailes was the main consultant to [President George H. W. Bush] and Fox has always had a bias in favor of [the] Bush [family].... 'Murdoch has always tended to use his publications or his companies to promote his agenda, but until now he's not done that with Fox News." See Bush, Beliefs & Elusive Bonesmen


Lawlessness.  A world divided: Violent clashes break out across the globe as thousands take to the streets in anti-Islam protests organised by far-right group PEGIDA: "Violent scuffles broke out across Europe today as thousands of people taking part in far-right anti-Islam protests clashed with pro-immigration groups and riot control police. Police in Dresden, Germany, saw about 2,000 protesters at a rally organised by the group Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West...." See The fall and rise of human violence


Amazing Pictures: The award-winning 17-YEAR-OLD photographer who sails around the world on a catamaran taking breathtaking animal shots  


Spiritual Warfare.  NASA says there is no room for 'Jesus' anymore: "We have prayed for the safety of our astronauts countless times. During the Apollo 11 moon landing, astronaut Buzz Aldrin even received communion. Those days are long gone, and now the politically correct mindset has invaded NASA. Our space program no longer allows the use of the name 'Jesus' when Christian organizations are announcing their upcoming events." See The fall and rise of human violence


Islam.  Stopping Islamic Immigration Is a Matter of Survival: "The consequences of future Islamic growth are frightening. Islam is not a religion like Christianity, but rather a totalitarian political ideology.... It aims to establish a worldwide Islamic state and bring everyone, including 'infidels,' such as Christians, Jews, atheists, and others, under Sharia law. This is the barbaric Islamic law which deprives non-Muslims of all rights, treats women as inferior beings, condemns apostates and critics of Islam to death, and condones terror." See The Plots to Rule an Islamic World 

Obama's Dark Agenda.  Obama Uses Mosque Speech to Subordinate All Religion to the State: “'We’re one American family and when any part of our family starts to feel separate or second-class or targeted, it tears at the very fabric of our nation,' the president claimed.... Obama has dismissed religion many times before, notably in 2008, when he declared working-class Americans 'cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them...." See From Freedom to Servitude

Islam.  Professor who said Christians, Muslims share a God...: "A professor at an evangelical Christian college who was suspended for saying Christians and Muslims worship the same God will no longer be teaching at the school. ... Larycia Hawkins... was put on paid administrative leave after vowing to wear a hijab for Advent in solidarity with Muslims.... she wrote... 'as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God."' See Plots to Rule an Islamic World 

Deception.  ISIS Playbook - Look Like Western Christians: "ISIS... encourages its followers and supporters to employ a wide variety of 'disguise and pretense' tactics in order to facilitate terrorism through infiltration.... That's the version that ISIS seems to prefer, in the hope that ISIS terrorists can be mistaken for harmless and law abiding Westerners while spying and setting the stage for their next terrorist attacks.'"


Faith wins!  Bible verse too hot for school, killing fundraiser: "Donors to a new Clear Creek Athletics Complex were allowed to dictate an inscription for a personalized nameplate that would be placed in the new football locker room. Michael Lucas, who played defensive nose tackle for the school and graduated in 2003, made a $2,500 donation and requested 'Colossians 3:23 and Micah 5:9.' But the message was rejected by the school, the ADF lawsuit explained, because one of the Bible verses includes the word 'Lord.'

     "CSM officials objected because... nameplate quotes could not include the words ‘Lord,’ ‘God’ or ‘Jesus’ or make reference to Bible verses that contain those words.... However, the lawyers argued that the First Amendment actually protects such speech." See Victory


Deception.  Why Did Obama Tell Brazen Lies at the Baltimore Mosque?  "Obama chose as the venue for his praise of Islam as a religion of peace and tolerance the same Baltimore mosque that in 2012 was under FBI scrutiny.... He also misquoted the Koran. ...saying incorrectly that the word comes from the same root as the Muslim word for peacesalam, as in, 'peace be with you.' In fact, in Arabic, the word 'Islam' means 'submission,' not peace, meaning submission to Allah and the teachings of his prophet, Mohammad....

     "Obama also misquoted Islamic scripture... even going so far as to suggest that Islamic teaching on killing is the same as the Christian, which is patently untrue." See Muslim Plots to Rule an Islamic World 


Persecution.  Christians 'Should be Eradicated': Researchers Document Anti-Christian Agenda Among Powerful Elite: "A student is punished for refusing to 'stomp on Jesus,' a Christian baker faces a year in jail for refusing to cater faux marriages, two men are arrested for reading the Bible aloud near a government building.... Critics asserting the existence of an institutional anti-Christian bias, and a resultant war on the faith, have often been labeled paranoid.'  ...such an agenda exists — among America’s most powerful people.'” See Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!


Important information:

Global Change.  Building a North American Community (US, Canada & Mexico): "Sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations in association with the Canadian Council of Chief Executives and the Consejo Mexicano de Asuntos Internacionales. North America... faces terrorist and criminal security threats, increased economic competition from abroad, and uneven economic development at home."

The Occult. Bush, Beliefs & Elusive Bonesmen  (John Kerry - also a member of Skull & Bones): "I believe that all the world, whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God. That's what I believe.' President George W. Bush.... 'There is a power in these prayers [to various gods].... Skull & Bones has trained three generations of the Bush family: Prescott Bush [See How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power], his son George W. H. Bush, and his grandson George W. Bush....

     "The story begins at Yale, where three threads of American social history -- espionage, drug smuggling and secret societies -- intertwined into one..." ("..the whole world is under the sway of the evil one." 1 John 5:19)

Obama's Mentor.  Zbigniew Brzezinski: The man behind Obama’s foreign policy (founder of the Trilateral Comission - an organization which seeks to welcan and European mega-corporate interests together for purposes of global corporate domination"):

     "Obama admitted several times before his nomination by the DNC that he had no foreign policy experience whatsoever - except being a Muslim. But not to worry (see the 2006 news story below), foreign policy guru Zbigniew Brzezinsky became Barack Obama's 'new brain.' In other words, Brzezinsky could do all Obama's thinking for him." See Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

Conspiracy.  How Isis was born, and the role the US Government had in creating it and empowering it: "ISIS - a geographically and ideologically expanding Muslim terrorist army - has been wrecking havoc for years, and yet the mightiest military power in the world, the USA, has been hesitant to wipe it out. Why?"  See Trusting God as Freedom Fades  

Please Pray. Beleaguered Christian army pleads for U.S. military aid to defend land against ISIS: "'Assyrian Military Forces commander Emanuel Khoshaba said the Assyrian Christians who live in the area face genocide from ISIS militants if they don't get military supplies soon. 'We can face IS without any fear. We can fight them if we have the support."

"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
