Heavily Armed Marxist Group 'Antifa' Attacks Veterans Rally in Oregon
3-29-21, washingtontimes.com -- Three VICTIMS arrested in Oregon as 'heavily armed' TERROR GROUP "Antifa" violently attack Pro America Veterans Rally. Their vehicles adorned with U.S. flags or pro-USA bumper stickers were attacked. More than 200 domestic terrorists from the violent Marxist Antifa group descended on the Oregon State Capitol to protest pro America Veterans “Freedom” rally and flag wave. The Antifa vandals threw paint-filled balloons and rocks at vehicles adorned with U.S. flags or bumper stickers supporting the USA. Salem Police reported that some Antifa thugs also pointed green lasers at drivers.
A video shared by journalist Andy Ngo, who has been independently documenting video the Antifa movement, showed one vehicle with its windows smashed and one driver's truck vandalized. Another vehicle sustained damage after a large tree limb was thrown through the front window into the passenger’s seat. In one area of the Capitol Mall, protesters stacked large shields with some reading “Abolish PPB” (Portland Police Bureau), while supporters prepared baking soda in case contaminates got in demonstrators’ eyes. Other Antifa rioters were heavily armed with bats, ballistic vests and gas masks.
One Veteran victim was arrested for pulling a gun defending his truck and himself from vicious Antifa thugs. See videos here
However, it is not clear if that person is among the three arrests police announced Sunday evening. None of the three individuals arrested are facing firearms charges as of Monday morning. Police officers formed a line near the Capitol and announced that if protesters didn’t disperse they would be subject to arrest. If they refused to comply, protesters may have weapons, munitions and tear gas used against them.
The Marxist Antifa group arrived at the Capitol to protest a “Freedom” rally to honor those Veterans who “fought for our freedoms.” A group called Fascist Free 503 — symbolizing Salem’s area code — quickly organized a counter-protest to prevent the rally from happening; it's not clear if the “Freedom” rally ever happened.
‘How is this not attempted murder?’ Watch Antifa ATTACKS...
3-29-21, FromTheTrenches -- This is just unbelievable. Antifa invades and attacks a conservative rally. They attack the people there, pepper spraying them, egging their cars. And when the victims fight back, the Communist Government of Oregon jackboots arrest the VICTIMS. The individual cops maybe can’t be held accountable for this coddling of domestic terror — maybe — but the local and state government sure can. News Thud
Siberian Arctic Circle Enormous Black Hole Craters
11-30-20, BBC -- In the Yamal Siberian Arctic circle, enormous black 164 ft deep hole crater has appeared in the permafrost. It appeared suddenly and explosively, leaving a ragged pockmark on the landscape. Around the crater’s edge, the earth is a torn, grey jumble of ice and clods of permafrost. The roots of plants – newly exposed around the rim – show signs of scorching. It gives some idea of just how violently this hole materialized.
From the air, the freshly exposed dirt stands out against the green tundra and dark lakes around it. The layers of earth and rock exposed further inside the cylindrical hole are almost black and a pool of water is already forming at the bottom by the time scientists reach it.
Among them is Evgeny Chuvilin, a geologist at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, based in Moscow, Russia, who has flown out to this remote corner of the Yamal Peninsula in north-west Siberia to investigate. What's causing the holes remains a huge riddle. More here
Deep Mystery: Theories Fly Over Giant Black Hole in Siberia
7-16-14, NBC News -- An enormous crater spotted near Yamal, northern Siberia, has people scrambling for explanations.
A volcano or a UFO? What created this mysterious crater?
10-4-12, SiberianTimes -- The Patomskiy crater has puzzled geological surveyors although many theories exist: the crater was created by an ancient civilization, by prisoners at a top secret Stalin labour camp, by volcanic activity, by a meteorite, by an underground hydrogen explosion or by a UFO. Approximately 9 million cubic feet [250,000 cubic meters] of underground rock pushed to the surface in a very regular round shape.
Scientists wonder why trees don't grow on the side of the cone-like structure? Despite a number of expeditions, no-one has the answer to who or what created this strange structure. A new mission to the remote area is due in near future.

The Israelites ate manna forty years after being released from slavery
So the people of Israel ate manna for forty years until they arrived at the promised land ... They all ate the same spiritual food. Deuteronomy 8:2. Remember that these forty years the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness, ... You did not withhold Your manna from their mouths, and You gave them water for their thirst. Exodus 16:35
What is Manna? Bible Story of Wilderness Miracle Explained
After 400 years of Egyptian slavery, the Hebrews spent forty years wandering in the wildernes, God provided their daily food called 'Manna.' While they grumbled saying their days in slavery were better. Manna, basically a word that means “what is it?” is a bread-like substance that fell from heaven (Psalm 78:24), and that tasted like honey.
The Israelites would go and collect a daily portion of manna each day, ensuring to get a double portion before the Sabbath (so they didn’t work for their food on the Sabbath). If they grabbed too much or too little, they suffered the consequences (Exodus 16:20). In Numbers 11:8 describes bread from heaven; they made it into cakes, boiled it, and ground it into flour. Also Deuteronomy 8:3, which Jesus later quotes when tempted by Satan, mentions these provisions from God.

You Better Believe It!
Jesus said, "Take heed that no man deceive you. Many shall come in My name, saying, "I am Christ"; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."

What a Wonderful Name It Is = JESUS!
Most Americans Believe ole Joe Isn't running things...
3-16-21, RT.com Helen Buyniski is an American journalist and political commentator - According to Rasmussen poll just 47% of American voters believe Biden is actually calling the shots. Most Americans believe someone other than ole Joe is making decisions. The poll responses also raise questions about the role of Harris, who was so widely disliked as a presidential candidate in her own right that she actually dropped out of the Democrat primaries before states began voting, after Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard exposed some of the stains on the California senator’s record on the debate stage. In a year where the country’s reckoning with police abuses featured front and center among election issues, Harris’ term as California's top prosecutor suggested she was in every way the wrong woman for the job.
Ms Harris recently took Biden’s place in a phone call with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as recent calls with Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, Australian PM Scott Morrison, and World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
According to CNN, Harris is making a point of “beefing up” her work on foreign policy and national security – two key fields for any candidate seeking the presidency. The VP’s frequent Freudian slips – in which she has referred to a “Harris administration” – and the media’s fawning over everything from her footwear to her favorite songs suggest a made-to-order leader delivered without the benefit of a vote. Ole Joe handed off the border mess to her; but her staff says she hasn't accepted the job...

Trials and Crucifixion of Jesus Christ
What Was the Charge Against Jesus? He was accused of blasphemy as He claimed to be the Son of God
"They that had laid hold on Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. But Peter followed Him afar off unto the high priest's palace, went in and sat with the servants, to see the end. Now the chief priests, elders and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put Him to death; but found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses, and said, 'This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.' And the high priest arose, and said unto Him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? But Jesus held His peace. And the high priest answered and said unto Him, 'I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.' Jesus saith unto him, "Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven."
Matthew 26:57-64, 27:11-14; Isaiah 53:1-8; Mark 14:53-65; Luke 23:1-6, 46; John 18:19-24; 1 Peter 2:21-25
An unprecedented conspiracy of injustice, cruelty of religious and political interests sentenced a man guilty of no crimes to the most barbaric method of execution ever devised. The victim was no mere man. Jesus was God in the flesh. The Creator of life died. How did such a thing come to be?
There were six parts to Jesus’ trial: three stages in a religious court (John 18:19-24; Matthew 26:57) and three stages before a Roman court (John 18:28).
Jesus was tried before Annas, the former high priest; Caiaphas, the current high priest and the Sanhedrin. He was charged in these “ecclesiastical” trials with blasphemy, claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah.
The trials before Jewish authorities, the religious trials, showed the degree to which the Jewish leaders hated Him because they carelessly disregarded many of their own laws. There were several illegalities involved in these trials from the perspective of Jewish law:
(1) No trial was to be held during feast time.
(2) Each member of the court was to vote individually to convict or acquit, but Jesus was convicted by acclamation.
(3) If the death penalty was given, a night must pass before the sentence was carried out; however, only a few hours passed before Jesus was placed on the Cross.
(4) The Jews had no authority to execute anyone.
(5) No trial was to be held at night, but this trial was held before dawn.
(6) The accused was to be given counsel or representation, but Jesus had none.
(7) The accused was not to be asked self-incriminating questions, but Jesus was asked if He was the Christ.
- inciting people to riot
- forbidding the people to pay their taxes
- claiming to be King
- Pilate found no reason to kill Jesus so he sent Him to Herod (Luke 23:7).
- Herod had Jesus ridiculed but, wanting to avoid the political liability.
- Sent Jesus back to Pilate (Luke 23:11–12); this was the last trial as Pilate tried to appease the animosity of the Jews by having Jesus scourged.
- Pilate offered the prisoner Barabbas to be crucified and Jesus released, but the crowds called for Barabbas to be released and Jesus to be crucified.
- Pilate granted their demand and surrendered Jesus to their will (Luke 23:25). The trials of Jesus represent the ultimate mockery of justice.
Russia UMKA-2021 Exercise:
Three ballistic missile submarines surfaced near the North Pole
3-26-21, * -- Three Russian ballistic missile submarines surfaced next to each other from beneath ten foot plus thick ice near the North Pole as part of a recent major Arctic exercise. The head of the country's Navy said that event was a first for his service. It also underscores the growing geopolitical competition in this highly strategic region.
Official video footage shows what appears to be at least two sails belonging to Delta IV class submarines, also known as Project 667BDRM Delfins. The Delta IVs can be armed with up to 16 R-29RMU Sineva submarine-launched ballistic missiles, themselves capable of each carrying either 4 or 10 MIRVs, again depending on the warhead type.
It is known that Russian ballistic missile submarines conduct deterrent patrols under the protection of the Arctic ice, where is especially difficult to track their movements. They do, of course, still have to move out from under the ice to unleash their deadly payloads.
The Umka-2021 drills come as Russia and the United States, among others, are working to expand their abilities to project military power into the Arctic. Russia has been working particularly hard to build new facilities and expand existing ones, especially air bases, in the region. The U.S. military, in cooperation with Canada, just recently demonstrated its ability to conduct more routine combat aviation operations out of the strategic Thule Air Base in Greenland, as well.
The Russian Navy sending three ballistic missile submarines punching through the Arctic ice together in a row near the North Pole provides a very clear look at this competition and more such displays are likely to come as the geopolitical friction in the region continues to increase.

Millions of Illegals Set to Receive Covid Stimulus
3-26-21, NaturalNews -- Illegal migrants are set to receive COVID-19 stimulus checks alongside legal citizens. The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reported that 2.65 million “aliens temporarily present without status” will receive federal aid. This is because they possess Social Security numbers allowing them to receive government relief money. CIS Dir of Steven Camarota remarked in a March 22, 2021 report: “These individuals are in the country illegally and could be required to leave. Yet, under the current system, they are still given work authorization and Social Security numbers.” He continued: “There is simply no question that millions of illegal immigrants will receive billions of dollars in [COVID-19] relief checks.” [..] The agency in charge of govt benefits said that an estimated 700,000 illegal migrants use stolen identities and Social Security numbers.

Cursed or Blessed?
Thus saith the LORD: "Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.”
Jeremiah 17:5; Deuteronomy 29:23; Psalm 107:34
12-17-20, Archives Henry Morris, PhD -- Jeremiah provides for us a striking contrast between the self-assured humanist and the one who has placed his trust in God. The man who looks to his own abilities or those of others to save him in time of trouble is “cursed.” His existence will be one of futility, just as is that of a parched desert plant (Jeremiah 17:6). Why? Because his “heart departeth from the LORD” (Jeremiah 17:5), the source of strength and salvation.
Jeremiah uses a play on words here. The words for “man” in our text are different: the first means “warrior” or “strong man,” and the second a “normal man.” The warrior who should be strong is cursed because he is trusting in one who is weak; in this case, any other man’s wisdom or might, or even his own strength, when overestimated. What sense is there in that?
In contrast, “blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD” (Jeremiah 17:7). “He shall be as a tree planted by the waters,...and shall not be careful [i.e., anxious] in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit” (Jeremiah 17:8). Why? Because his “hope the LORD is” (Jeremiah 17:7). We see the warrior—one who might be considered strong—trusting solely in the true “strong man,” the Lord.
It is a tragic fact that even many Christians fall into the mindset of the autonomous humanist and attempt to live their lives (even “the Christian life”) under their own power. Every heart, whether humanist or Christian, “is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). Make no mistake! “I the LORD search the heart” (Jeremiah 17:10); He knows our inner motives. Let us recommit ourselves to trust in the Lord and make Him our hope. Source
For Five Months, BLM Protestors Trashed America's Cities with the Leftist Democrats calling it peaceful protests
11-6-20, Heritage.org -- This week marks the first time in living memory that widespread violence was widely viewed as a foreseeable, and even expected, outcome of an election. Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the newer splinter groups that mimic their tactics, the media often seems to take their social-justice posturing at face value. In the current media environment, left-of-center actors who claim to represent the cause of the oppressed are granted more moral license to use violence as a political tool. In September, two reports were published—one shedding light on the methods and beliefs of Black Lives Matter activists, and the other analyzing the possibility that such violence will not only be sustained in coming months, but get worse.
Neither report has received much in the way of media attention, which is unfortunate, because the information they contain shows that the threat of violence won’t end with the election of a new president. In fact, all of the leading left-wing groups calling for disruptive street protests (or worse) have made demands in which they explicitly reject one or more basic elements of the American social contract that are supported by both mainstream Democrats and Republicans—including capitalism, race-neutrality, the right of a society to police itself, and even democracy itself...

The Missionary’s Goal
"Behold, we go up to Jerusalem."
Luke 18:31, 32-34
9-23-20, In the natural life our ambitions alter as we develop; in the Christian life the goal is given at the beginning, the beginning and the end are the same, viz., Our Lord Himself. We start with Christ and we end with Him – "until we all attain to the stature of the manhood of Christ Jesus," not to our idea of what the Christian life should be.
The aim of the missionary is to do God’s will. In Our Lord’s life Jerusalem was the place where He reached the climax of His Father’s will upon the Cross. Unless we also go with Jesus we will have no companionship with Him. Nothing ever discouraged Our Lord on His way to Jerusalem. He never hurried through certain villages where He was persecuted, or lingered in others where He was blessed.
Neither gratitude nor ingratitude turned Our Lord one hair’s breadth away from His purpose to go up to Jerusalem.
"The disciple is not above his Master." [John 13:16] The same things will happen to us on our way to our Jerusalem. There will be the works of God manifested through us, people will get blessed, and one or two will show gratitude and the rest will show gross ingratitude, but nothing must deflect us from going up to our Jerusalem. [Matthew 10:16-25]
"There they crucified Him." [John 19:18] That is what happened when Our Lord reached Jerusalem, and that happening is the gateway to our salvation. [1 Timothy 1:15] The saints do not end in crucifixion: by the Lord’s grace they end in glory. In the meantime our watchword is – I, too, go up to Jerusalem.

Third Prediction of Death, Resurrection
"And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them: "Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death, And shall deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify Him: and the third day He shall rise again."
Israel Election Results: Anti-Netanyahu Parties Divided on Next Move as PM Lacks Majority [again - still counting votes]
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud has emerged as the largest party with the majority of the vote counted in Israel's unprecedented fourth election in two years. However, Netanyahu still does not have a clear path to a 61-seat majority needed to form a coalition. The vote count is expected to continue through Friday.
The anti-Netanyahu bloc, a motley crew of left, right and centrist factions, was also just shy of a majority. The Islamist United Arab List party, headed by Mansour Abbas, and Naftali Bennett's Yamina have not yet declared their support for either bloc. [..]
Likud has approached each member of New Hope with offers to convince them to defect =>
<= so that Netanyahu can create a coalition. Shasha-Biton said she had been offered the role of education minister. "There will absolutely not be any defectors," she said. "We will make an effort to form a government of change and prevent a fifth election."
The Central Elections Committee has released the full count of the vote, showing no change in the distribution of seats from earlier in the day. Parties supporting Netanyahu total 52 seats, and those opposing him 57, with the uncommitted Yamina and United Arab List parties holding a combined 11 seats. The results are not considered final, as they must be made official before being sent to President Reuven Rivlin next week. (Netael Bandel)
On June 6, 2020 an estimated half a million people joined protests in 550 places across the USA. Rioting in the United States for the stated reason the death of black Minnesota man George Floyd and continued throughout the entire month of June. Over 40% of counties in the United States had riots. Polls estimate between 15 million and 26 million people participated in the United States, making these protests potentially the largest movement in terms of participation in U.S. history. The protests spread to over 2,000 cities and towns in all 50 states and all 5 permanently-inhabited territories, as well as in over 60 other countries, with demonstrators supporting those seeking justice for Floyd and the wider Black Lives Matter and the Marxist ANTIFA movement CLAIMING the reason was police brutality. So they committed arson, vandalism, looted and committed murders. On June 3, 2020 one black former police officer, David Dorn was murdered protecting a retail store.
Jesus' Prayer of Thanksgiving
“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.”
Matthew 11:25; Luke 10:21
3-23-21, Archives of Henry Morris, PhD -- When the Lord Jesus was here on Earth, He was, among other things, “leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps” (1 Peter 2:21). One aspect of that example, no doubt, was His prayer life. He prayed and gave thanks before He fed the multitude (Matthew 15:36) and also when He ate with His disciples at the last supper (Luke 22:19). It is surely right, therefore, that we should give thanks in prayer before each meal, whether in a small group as with our family or in a large public dining place.
Jesus spent much time in prayer. On at least one occasion, He “continued all night in prayer to God” (Luke 6:12), and no doubt a goodly portion of His prayer was thanksgiving prayer, as well as intercession.
But there seems to be only one specific item of thanksgiving by Him actually recorded in Scripture, and that is the item in our text. (The same is also given, verbatim, in Matthew 11:25, so we can infer that the Holy Spirit considered it very important.) That is this:
the wonderful truths of salvation and forgiveness — eternal life in heaven and God’s guidance and provision on Earth — are easily understood by the simplest among us, even by little children, even though they often seem difficult for “the wise and prudent” to comprehend. His great plan of creation and redemption and who, therefore, will end up eternally lost. Many are the simple folk and children who just hear and believe and are saved. “Even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.” He also rejoiced when His disciples returned with good news of all the people who came to believe and be saved.

USA to spend $86 million on hotel rooms for illegal migrants
3-20-21, BusInsider -- Apparently the Democrats will spend $86 million on hotel rooms for foreign illegal migrants. The latest decision to secure hotel rooms comes as the US is seeing the biggest surge of illegals at the border in decades, pacing towards a potential 2 million migrants at the US-Mexico border this year, The Washington Post reported.
Ole Joe is blasted for the policy to assist homeless illegal migrants but not American Veterans who are also homeless
3-22-21, FoxNews -- Former homeless veteran David Hathcock blasted the Biden administration’s “heartbreaking decision” to award assistance to illegal migrants ... and when asked if the U.S. does enough to care for our own veterans, Hathcock said, "We’re giving $86 million to people that have never contributed to this society and yet, we let the people that have given the most be homeless."
3-22-21, NYMag.com -- A shopper inside the King Soopers told the Denver Post that the shooter “didn’t say anything" - The 21 yr old Muslim Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa just came in and started shooting.” Ten people were killed, including a police officer. It's the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. in nearly two years. [The crazy liberals trying to blame the gun again. They want to strip law abiding Americans of the right of arming themselves against criminals like this Alissa guy.]
Jesus the Source of Peace
“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.”
Colossians 1:15-20; John 14:27
11-21-20, Pastor Charles Stanley - Before we knew Jesus Christ, our behaviors may have been godless and wicked — we had self-seeking stubborn ways (Rom. 1:18; 2:5, 8). Like our strife-filled world, we clamored for peace and tried to find it, but our efforts failed.
When we came to faith in the Savior [John 3:3, 7], all of that changed. We were rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into Christ’s kingdom (Col 1:13). Everyone of our sins — past and present were forgiven. Divine justice was satisfied by Christ’s sacrifice and God’s wrath upon us was removed. We became a new creation, washed clean by Jesus’ blood (2 Cor. 5:17). God's Holy Spirit came to be our personal guide in this new life, helping each of us experience Christ’s peace (Rom. 8:6).
We also can look forward to an eternity spent in heaven, where righteousness, tranquility, and joy abound (Rom. 14:17).
The story of the prodigal son’s return is a picture of our reconciliation with the Lord (Luke 15:11-24). The son had chosen to leave his father, living instead to please himself. Repentant, he eventually returned home; his father joyfully greeted him and forgave him, and there was harmony between them.
Our unity with the heavenly Father came at a great price — the sacrifice of His only Son. Christ gave His life for us so that we could be reconciled to God (Col. 1:20). Christian lives are to testify that Jesus is the source of our peace. In the current turbulent world we may struggle; and happiness evades us -- but we do have God's peace.

H.R.1 - 117th Congress (2021-2022): For the People Act ... www.congress.gov - Rep. Sarbanes, John P. [D-MD]
The Bill has passed in the Democrat's House and went to the Democrat's Senate on 3/11/21 -- The Dems call it: “For the People Act”, but in reality, it should be called the “Corrupt Politicians Act”.
At the federal level, we need to stop the Corrupt Politicians Act from becoming law. And at the state level, it is essential that we strengthen election security laws. saveourelections.com
Under the Corrupt Politicians Act, aka Under H.R. 1:
Placing this massive centralization of power into the hands of incumbent lawmakers is D.C. is the corrupt politicians' way of trying to make sure the game always rigged in their favor.
The end goal of H.R. 1 / S. 1 is clear—to enshrine into law dubious electoral practices that enable and encourage fraudulent behavior, such as:See terrible policies containedand More here:
No Fear in the Days of Evil
“Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?”
Psalm 49:5, 118:6; Hebrews 13:6
3-17-21, Archives Henry Morris, PhD -- The “days of evil” seem specifically to refer to old age, as in Ecclesiastes 12:1, which exhorted young people to “remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them.”
Those who have not “remembered their Creator” while young may one day come to realize that the iniquities that had been accumulating against their record. The Lord God long ago warned would bruise the heels of the children of Mother Eve (see Genesis 3:15). Their sins, which will eventually become so numerous as to “compass them about,” might even destroy them both now and eternally. =>
<= After all, the devil will have “the power of death” (Hebrews 2:14) until that day when the true seed of the woman, the Lord Jesus Christ will “crush the head” of that wicked one forever.
However, because of Christ’s great victory over Satan — when He both died for our sins and then defeated death by His resurrection — we need no longer fear death, even when the evil days draw nigh.
Though it is far better to accept His gift of salvation from sin repenting while we are young; [Luke 13:3; Ephesians 2:9-10], as long as we live it is never too late. So, “wherefore should I fear in the days of evil? We have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and...perfect love casteth out fear” (1 John 4:16, 18). Source
USA Three B-52s Stratofortress Fly Over North Pole in an 'Exercise'
Barksdale B-52 Flies Direct to the Middle East
1-27-21, AirForceMag -- A U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress from the 2nd Bomb Wing, Barksdale Air Force, LA. The bomber from the 2nd Bomb Wing flew the “presence patrol” over the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia, linking up with Air Forces Central Command F-15Es, F-16s, KC-10s, and KC-135s, according to a U.S. Central Command release. The bomber also flew alongside Royal Saudi Air Force F-15s.
CENTCOM said in the statement: “This long-range, short-duration, defensive mission was intended to demonstrate the U.S. military’s ability to deploy airpower anywhere in the world to deter potential aggression and showcase the U.S. commitment to regional security.”
The B52 flight is the sixth in about three months [President Trump was [is?] still Commander in Chief], and the third in 2021. The Air Force has been sending Stratofortresses to the region as a show of strength and deterrence as tensions with Iran remain high.
Within the past year, the service moved away from long-duration deployments of the bombers and instead flies the long-range bomber task force flights roundtrip from home bases in the U.S.
3-22-21, Hal Turner Report -- As of 12:10 PM eastern US time Monday, 22 March 2021, the United States is simulating launching B-52 Bomber nuclear strikes against Russia by sending actual B-52's up to the North Pole. This comes as US and NATO forces have projected an enormous amount of firepower into the Black Sea [between Russia & Turkey] and the NATO countries bordering Russia. 28,000 troops, along with tanks, planes, helicopters, armor, artillery and more . . . all taking part in "exercises" at the precise same time that Ukraine has massed 90,000 troops, 450 tanks, and 800 pieces of artillery on the borders of breakaway oblasts (States) Luhansk and Donetsk.
It is expected that the government of Ukraine will commence a military offensive to forcibly take both Luhansk and Donetsk, to put a stop to their desires to leave Ukraine and join Russia. There are also large numbers of USA fighter jets flying along the northern border of the US and well into Canada, along with numerous refueling tankers running patterns as if they are defending from a Russian attack via that same North Pole.
For its part, Russia has massed 250,000 troops along its large border with Ukraine, and has already publicly warned it will defend the Russian-speaking peoples of Luhansk and Donestsk if Ukraine attacks.
Go-Fund-Me Page Setup for Prince Harry & Duchess Meghan ... by a fan got $110.00
3-16-21, FoxNews -- Anastasia Hanson, 56, who lives about 25 minutes from the princely palatial estate in swanky Montecito of Harry & Meghan told Britain’s the Sun that she started the fundraising effort because she felt sorry for the multimillionaire royal couple.
Harry whined to Oprah Winfrey about being financially cut off by Buckingham Palace. Ms Hanson reported: “When they came to the USA, they were without jobs and with limited funds. They’ve stated that they’ve had a very rough time, so this fundraiser is a way to give help, compassion and love by paying their home loan in full.”
The GoFundMe was page set up to pay off the mortgage on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s $14.6 million California estate.
Alas, little interest and the page was dissolved with only raising a measly $110.
Hmm, maybe Ms Hanson ponied up the $110 ...
Exit by "RAPTURE?"
Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."
3-21-21, Pastor Greg Lauri teaches us about what to expect when born again believers and non-believers stop breathing on this earth. One exit method is 'The Rapture' ...
After Revelation Chapter 4 to Revelation 19
the 'Church' is not mentioned again ...
The door was open in Revelation 4:1-4
The Apostle John said: "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."
In Revelation we see:God's Person - Chapter 1 Glorified Christ
His People - Chapters 2 & 3 Summary of Church History
His Program and Rapture of the Church - Chapters 4 & 5
His Judgment - Great Tribulation - Chapters 6 to 19
His 1000 year Millenium - Chapter 20
His New Heaven & Earth - Chapter 21 & 22
