North Korea New Test
Pompeo Persona non grata
NKorea says it tested new weapon
4-18-19, Washington Times -- North Korea on Wednesday tested a powerful new “tactical guided weapon,” according to state-run media in Pyongyang, boasting that the missile will dramatically increase the country’s “combat power” and ability to defend itself from attack.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was on hand to watch the test, which appears to have involved a non-nuclear weapon. State-run media did not reveal detail on the weapon other than to say it marked “an event of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power of the People’s Army.”
Regional analysts say the test should serve as a wake-up call to the West and a reminder that even if Pyongyang ultimately does end its nuclear-weapons program, it still possesses highly powerful weapons.
The test comes less than two months after Mr. Kim met President Trump in Hanoi...
North Korea demands US to sideline Pompeo from nuclear talks: report
4-18-19, Fox News -- North Korean state media reported Thursday that the regime no longer wants to see Secretary of State Mike Pompeo involved in nuclear talks, urging the U.S. replace the top diplomat with someone “more careful and mature in communicating.”
North Korea wants Pompeo out of nuclear talks - New York Post
4-18-19, NY Post -- The North Korean statement said Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry accused Pompeo of playing down the significance of comments by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who said last week that Washington has until the end of the year to offer mutually acceptable terms for an agreement to salvage the high-stakes nuclear diplomacy. Both the demand for Pompeo’s removal from the talks and the weapon test point to Pyongyang’s displeasure with the deadlocked negotiations.

When God Said: “Do Not Pray”
God said to Jeremiah: “Pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to Me: for I will not hear thee. v 14I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble. v11-12 Pray not for this people for their good. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.”
12-20-17, * -- In scripture  we see two occasions when God told someone not to pray, for He would not hear their prayer.
- Moses, for though he’d been faithful to God most of his life, he was told by the Lord he’d not enter the Promised Land because of his disobedience. (Num. 20:8-12). Moses pleaded with the Lord, (Deut. 3:25-26) but God’s decision was final. He explained to Moses why He would not hear his prayer, saying, “because you broke faith with Me in the midst of the sons of Israel at the waters of Meribah-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin, because you did not treat Me as holy in the midst of the sons of Israel” (Deut. 32:51).
- God told Jeremiah not to pray for his fellow Israelites. Three times God told Jeremiah, “do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you” (Jer. 7:16, 11:14; 14:11). God decided to judge and punish His people (Jer. 7:20) because they’d repeatedly broken their covenant with Him by disobeying His commands and pursuing other gods (Ex. 20:2-4; cf. Ezek. 20:4-24). Repeatedly the people disobeyed God’s commands and would not change their behavior (Jer. 7:21-26; 11:1-13, 19:4-5; Ezek. 16:20-21, 25:3).
We are commanded to be “devoted to prayer” (Rom. 12:12; cf. Col. 4:2). The born again believer in Christ Jesus is to look to God always for wisdom and strength to do His will, lifting others before His throne of grace, requesting He will intervene as we ask, for His glory and their benefit.

Russian Expert Golts: Rising Tension Between Russia And NATO Can Turn The Black Sea Into A Battlefield; The Balance Of Power Favors Moscow
"Russia as a source of military threat was the main subject of the NATO Foreign Ministers [70th] 'anniversary' meeting in Washington April 3-4, 2019. Despite numerous internal conflicts that were also discussed at the summit (one of them is US Pres Trump's insistent demand to reduce U.S. expenditures on European security), there is one immutable factor that ensures NATO unity. It is the opposition to what NATO members consider 'the threat from the East.' […]
"Alexander Grushko said that Russia is currently conducting the planned upgrade of its Black Sea Fleet and is therefore prepared for 'any possible turns in the sphere of military security'. 'Our position is clear: any reinforced NATO presence in the Black Sea region is pointless from a military perspective,' the diplomat stated. 'It will not strengthen security in the region nor that of NATO itself, it will only involve additional military risks.'
"General Vladimir Shamanov, head of the State Duma Defense Committee, quite frankly promised NATO a shellacking. […]
Vice President Mike Pence stated at the Washington meeting of NATO foreign ministers, Turkey was subjected to extremely harsh criticism due to its intention to buy the Russian S-400 air defense system. 'Turkey's purchase of a $2.5 billion Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile system poses great danger to NATO and the strength of this alliance.' Ankara does not intend to yield to pressure. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu called the purchase of the S-400 a 'done deal'. [...]
Since 2014, NATO warships have been regularly displaying the flag near Crimea. And now they will be most likely based there almost permanently. The capture of Ukrainian ships in November 2018 was not a pre-planned operation. The Russian coast guard and their commanders obviously lost their nerve. And no one can guarantee that this will not happen again."
'The whole subject of the new NATO 'deterrence' measures package in the Black Sea, as well as Moscow's readiness to immediately interpret the vague threats from Brussels as a scenario for direct military confrontation, once again confirm that the parties have entered a new cold war.'

Notre Dame: An Omen?
War Against Christianity?
Jesus said: "Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets."
4-16-19, * -- The symbolism of the burning of the Roman Catholic Notre Dame Cathedral, the most renowned building in Western civilization, the iconic symbol of Western Christendom, is hard to miss. It’s as if God Himself wanted to warn us in the most unmistakable way that Western Christianity is burning -- and with it, Western civilization.
Every major Western (and one major non-Western) social and intellectual force has conspired to rid Europe of Christianity and the civilization it produced.
Within the Western world, the French Enlightenment -- the intellectual basis of the French Revolution and the modern West -- sought to replace Christianity, and religion in general, with secularism rooted in reason. No God, Bible or Ten Commandments is necessary for morality or meaning: reason (and science) will replace them.
Two deathblows to Christianity in Europe were the world wars
- World War I ended most Westerners' belief in the nation-state and the West. Christianity, already weakened by the Enlightenment, was further weakened by World War I. German Christians were killing millions of French and English Christians, and French and English Christians were killing millions of German Christians. So the argument and sentiment against Christianity went.
- World War II saw even more death on the Christian continent as well as the failure of Catholic and Protestant churches in Nazi Germany to offer even minimal noncompliance with the Nazis' Jew-hatred. With the end of World War II, every internal Western intellectual doctrine was secular. God, the Bible and religion were regarded at best as innocuous nonsense and at worst as noxious nonsense.
They were wrong, of course; and as a result, the two dominant forces in Europe -- secular leftism and Islamism -- sought the end of Christianity and the West. (The left believes that protecting Western civilization is equivalent to protecting white supremacy.) This is not producing a pretty picture. Generally speaking, Islam has not been nearly as kind, tolerant, open, medically or scientifically innovative or intellectually curious as Western civilization (and yes, Nazism and communism were born in the West, but they were anti-Western). Even without tens of millions of Muslims, post-Christian Europe - it has not produced a pretty picture.
This was predicted in 1834, 100 years before Hitler's rise, by the great German poet Heinrich Heine, a secular Jew (who later converted to Protestantism, "the ticket of admission into European culture") he said: "Christianity -- and that is its greatest merit -- has somewhat mitigated that brutal German love of war, but it could not destroy it. Should that subduing talisman, the cross, be shattered, the frenzied madness of the ancient warriors, that insane Berserk rage of which Nordic bards have spoken and sung so often, will once more burst into flame. This talisman (the cross) is fragile, and the day will come when it will collapse miserably. Then ... a play will be performed in Germany which will make the French Revolution look like an innocent idyll."
I don't know if a worker accident or a radical Muslim set fire to Notre Dame Cathedral (as Muslims have vandalized scores of other churches around Europe). In terms of what the fire represented, it doesn't much matter. What matters is the omen:
Europe is burning, just as Notre Dame did.
Christians are scorned just as Jesus was. Isaiah 53:3-5; John 14:1-3

HHS FY10 Bill: Tax Dollars Must Not Fund Abortions of Children or Fund Research on Tissue Harvested from Dead Babies
4-10-19, There is a battle in Congress regarding the HHS FY19 funding bill that includes language prohibiting taxpayer dollars to fund abortions, and the Dickey-Wicker Amendment, which bans Labor-HHS funding from being used on research that harms human embryos. The bill includes language that prohibits funding for fetal tissue research obtained from abortion.
This measure might sound familiar because it is a direct response to the 2015 scandal that revealed how Planned Parenthood [PP] systematically was [is?] altering abortion procedures to preserve babies’ organs to sell them for profit. The bill includes language to prohibit abortion providers like PP from receiving any funding, including through Title X family grants. More here
Reportedly Persons Newly Vaccinated Are Spreaders of Disease for Days
It's called 'shedding' by contact with freshly vaccinated people
[This is disputed or 'very few cases' [here]
In New York law-abiding people can be arrested and put in jail for six months for not agreeing to get some mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde shot by needle syringe directly into their muscle tissue.
Wait, no papers? Then you’re banned from leaving your house to go to public places, including the grocery store, gas station, or for medicine (this law can be enforced right now).
Want some genetically-modified bacteria that you can spread with the measles next week? Try getting the MMR vaccine.
Don’t think so, check the CDC vaccine web pages. The toxic injections also include GMOs, hydrolyzed casein (got milk allergies?), aluminum, polysorbate 80 and more.
The measles and other mixed genetically-mutated viruses
So what’s in the MMR-II vaccine?
Why does the Leftist government want your children injected by force with known neurotoxins all while demanding gun confiscation? What could be that end goal? The MMR-II contains:
- chick embryo cell cultures
- genetically modified abortion cells (their fancy name is WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts),
- cow’s blood (bovine serum),
- recombinant human albumin (that’s GMO human blood/cells),
- sorbitol (synthetic smoothing agent)
- some neomycin (that’s an antibiotic) - Side effects of injecting neomycin include decreased urination, hearing problems, spinning sensation, nausea, feeling like you might pass out, loss of coordination, trouble walking.
The MMRV ProQuad contains:
- the chicken pox vaccine neurotoxins
- monosodium glutamate. Got migraines? Get ready for the worst ones you’ll ever have when it gets injected]
- urea [animal urine]
- recombinant human albumin, that’s the blood cells from a human aborted babies
Shedding vaccine viruses and bacteria is common during 1st two weeks after receiving any live-virus injection
It is a scientific fact that any person injected with a live virus, even if it’s weakened or “inactive” due to formaldehyde, can shed that virus (by coughing, sneezing, or even sharing a drink) through their saliva or mucus, to any person, whether they are inoculated or not. Even when the vaccinated “shedder” does not contract the disease (or those particular strains of a virus) themselves. Source

André Finot, a spokesperson for the cathedral, expressed concern that the fire’s destruction will be beyond repair. “Everything is burning. The framework, which dates from the 19th century on one side and the 13th century on the other, there will be nothing left. We have to see if the vault, which protects the cathedral, will be affected or not.”
Muslims Cheer as Notre Dame Burned
Investigation ongoing, so far cause of fire unknown

4-14-19, Gatestone -- In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or "migrant") identity of the destroyers is leaked, the perpetrators are then presented as suffering from mental health issues. In Germany, four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March 2019 alone:
- Vandals plundered Notre-Dame des Enfants Church in Nîmes and used human excrement to draw a cross there; consecrated bread was found thrown outside among garbage.
- The Saint-Nicolas Church in Houilles was vandalized on three separate occasions in February; a 19th century statue of the Virgin Mary, regarded as "irreparable," was "completely pulverized," said a clergyman; and a hanging cross was thrown to the floor.
- Vandals desecrated and smashed crosses and statues at Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, and mangled the arms of a statue of a crucified Christ in a mocking manner. In addition, an altar cloth was burned.
- Arsonists torched the Church of St. Sulpice in Paris soon after midday mass on Sunday, March 17.
As a typical example, in 2014, a Muslim man committed "major acts of vandalism" inside a historic Catholic church in Thonon-les-Bains. As the recent PI-News report says:
"Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators.... Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants... It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism." More here
Every Good and Perfect Gift
The Gift of Wisdom
"For God giveth to a man that is good in His sight wisdom"
4-15-19, King Solomon was the third king of Israel. Known for his incredible wealth and power, Solomon reigned for 40 years during one of the most prosperous times in Israel’s history. “The king made silver and gold as common in Jerusalem as stones” (2 Chron. 1:15). Solomon was known for his extravagant lifestyle, taking 700 wives and 300 concubines. He is credited for the building of a lavish palace and the temple to house the Ark of the Covenant. Perhaps most of all - Solomon was renowned for his wisdom, which was a gift (at his request) from God.
Solomon penned the dismal reflections in the book of Ecclesiastes in his old age.
“I hated life, because the work that is done under the sun was grievous to me.” (Eccl 2:17)
Ecclesiastes repeats the theme that life “under the sun” is vanity. By acquiring everything commonly desired by humanity, the writer learned that bounty does not equal happiness. Both the rich and the poor meet a common end. No amount of wealth or possessions guarantees happiness. Even accomplishments, of which he had many, did not produce joy (Eccl 2:19).
Notice how many times the word meaningless is used; again and again, the king reaches the same conclusion. The one who is wise, seeing life through a godly lens, can view the end result of earthly labor; it will not produce eternal results. The key verse and the hope is found in verse Eccl 2:25. Without God, “who can eat or find enjoyment?”
God is key to life’s purpose. It is not enough to work hard, to chase pleasure, or even to achieve greatness. Rather, a life spent pointed toward God will bring wisdom and happiness (Eccl 2:1-11, 26). Source
Illinois: 154 cases of fast-moving and multidrug-resistant deadly fungus that spreads through hospitals - Candida Auris
Illinois is the state with the second-highest occurrence of Candida auris, an emerging multi drug-resistant yeast that can cause infection and, in many cases, death. New York has had 309 reported cases of the fungus and New Jersey 104.
Dr. Tom Chiller, chief of mycotic diseases branch at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said: “It [Candida auris] acquires resistance fast, and then it remains resistant. It has the ability to develop pan resistance.” Chiller said he isn’t concerned for the general public, but that “it’s important for all of our hospitals to remain vigilant.”
Candida auris is difficult to eradicate once it’s in a hospital or clinic, as it can spread even to the ceilings in examination rooms and on equipment. More here from NBC.com
OFFEND MUSLIMS? NO WAY!
OFFEND CHRISTIANS? OKAY!
Cemetery Covers Crosses in Italy
4-11-19, Despite the long-standing prevalence of Christian Catholicism in Italy, apparently their culture may be succumbing to anti-Christian political correctness as they are covering crosses on graves to avoid offending Muslims. The cemetery located in Pieve di Cento, Italy is located in an area that has a small but growing Muslim population, though nine out of 10 residents continue to call themselves Catholics; why, then, does an entire population have to be offended to appease a small minority of Muslim people?
Ms Giorgia Meloni, Brothers of Italy leader said: “With the excuse of respect for others, they lack respect for our Catholic culture and our traditions. Now the Left is beyond fanaticism. This is ideological delirium.”
The cemetary’s new policy is sure to prompt outcry from Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who introduced a bill in 2018 to require all public buildings to display a crucifix. Salvini’s bill reads: “The removal of the religious symbols that characterize our community means challenging the principles on which our identity is based. Respecting minorities does not mean renouncing the symbols of our history, culture and tradition.” More here

- The world, spirialing toward total separation from God, had better wake up before God's judgment falls upon them without mercy or forgiveness that is now freely offered.
- Do not be overwhelmed by the world...for time is drawing short.
- Be instead embedded in God's Word and seek His face.

'On My Father's Side'
A young boy came to the Temple in Jerusalem one day
He came to see the scholars they would say
The holy men were teachers, but He taught them instead
They were Godly judges and this is what they said:
What's your name son?
On my mother's side, my name is Jesus
But on my Father's side, I'm Immanuel.
How old are you?
On my mother's side, I am twelve years old
On my Father's side, I've always been.
Where are you from?
On my mother’s side I’m from Bethlehem
On my Father’s side, from New Jerusalem.
Well, what are your plans?
On my mother’s side, I'll be crucified,
On my Father’s side, in three days, I'll arise
In three days I’ll rise and sit at my Father's side.
He spoke and they all listened
Amazed at what they heard
Who taught this boy from Bethlehem
Who understood God’s Word?
Could He be the Savior
Who would suffer so much pain?
They knew He was special and asked once again.

Balaam's Error and the Talking Donkey
“Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward and perished in the gainsaying of Core.”
4-12-19, * -- Balaam is a very complex character recorded in Numbers 22:5-6 thru Numbers 24:1-25. He is cited for an ability to communicate with “the LORD” and had a reputation for accurate prophecy (Numbers 22:6-8). As the new nation of Israel traveled northward into the Sinai Peninsula, Balak the king of Moab became worried that Israel would subjugate his nation and recruited Balaam to curse them.
Balaam “loved the wages of unrighteousness” (2 Peter 2:15), but was astute enough to know that he could not talk God into doing anything God did not want to do! However, even though Balaam was aware of the dangers of getting involved on the wrong side of God’s work, he wormed and squirmed through several interchanges with God until he was finally allowed to go do what Balak asked. “God’s anger was kindled” at the stubbornness of this man, and the famous interchange with the donkey took place (Numbers 22:22-31).
Balaam “ran greedily” after the reward that he had been promised by King Balak in Moab. Balaam knew enough about the correct sacrifices to build the right kind of altars and sacrifice the right kind of animals, then proceeded to seek God’s “word” for Israel. Three times God “put a word” in Balaam’s mouth to bless Israel, and three times Balak insisted that he try again to curse them. [Numbers 23:18-24] Balaam did not understand what is written in Deuteronomy 10:12-14 in the covenant relationship we have with God, we are the junior partners. Our job is to submit, to obey, to fear and respect Him, and if we do that, everything will work out fine.
However, when we try to take God's prerogatives from Him and do things that only He can do, then we start getting into deep trouble. This is where Balaam was—in very dangerous territory. He was trying to negotiate with God as if he were His equal.
Instead of repenting of his foolishness, Balaam bragged about his ability to know what God wanted: "God said, I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication." Revelation 2:14
Also, his confession for hitting the donkey was quite insipid as he admitted that he did wrong, but all he does is to confess that he had sinned, justifying himself with, "I didn't see you I'm just a poor, ignorant person." Numbers 22:34
In our modern world unfortunately there are many "church" leaders who behave like Balaam who prostitute the gifts of God for their own profit. They will come under a “greater condemnation” (James 3:1).

[*] Who is Core aka Korah? He resisted the civil authority of Moses. For refusing to appear before him as commanded, Korah and his companions Dathan and Abiram with their households and houses were swallowed up by the earth Numbers 16:1. Then there came the further revolt of Korah against Moses and Aaron, in the interests of the people at large as against the tribe of Levi. The rebels were consumed by fire from the Lord Numbers 17:1. There followed the opposition of Korah and 250 Levites against the monopoly of the priesthood claimed by Aaron. The “gainsaying,” meaning against the Word, was Korah’s denial of the authority of Moses as God’s chosen spokesman, and intrusion into the priest’s office Jude 1:11.
