World’s Biggest Pork Producer 'Smithfield' Warns of Possible Bacon Shortage
10-9-19, Bloomberg -- According to Smithfield Foods Inc., the world’s biggest pork producer, the U.S. could see tight supplies of bacon, shortages of pork bellies and ham next year as China's pig-killing disease ripples through the global market. Although the hog crisis hasn’t had much impact on the U.S. market yet, that could change. The Asian nation is forced to increase imports, said Arnold Silver, director of raw materials procurement at Smithfield, which is owned by Hong Kong-listed WH Group Ltd. "The Chinese are insatiable in their appetite for pork. Smithfield will prioritize supplying its long-held U.S. customer base before directing meat for export to China."
US Reviewing Options For Pulling Nuclear Bombs Out Of Turkey
10-14-19, TheDrive -- The United States has had those nuclear weapons stored at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey since the 1960s. There are between 150 and 200 total B61s deployed between Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey. Turkey is the only host country that is not part of the alliance's nuclear sharing agreement, which gives the other countries involved access to these weapons, in close coordination with the United States, during a crisis. In a crisis, there are no aircraft actually based in Turkey that could deliver the weapons.

God’s View of Christian’s Self Defense
“Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked. V19 Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”
10-14-19, Is it right to employ lethal force to protect the life of yourself and others or is it right to take measures that might kill an attacker who is wrongfully threatening your life or the life of another? Yes, but self-defense is not:
- about taking vengeance
- about punishing criminals
- about wartime
Based on God's word precepts; we have a Biblical obligation to preserve life. Our bodies belong to God we are His property and so we are not permitted to treat or destroy them as we please. Not only are we to take care of our bodies and the life contained; we have an obligation to preserve the body and life of others. [Ezekiel 33:6; Psalm 82:4] If you know danger is coming to others, and you deliberately fail to warn the others of the danger, you are guilty of harming the victims. This is not to say that you can make people heed your warning; but we are responsible if we do not warn them. If someone breaks into our home at night and we kill him, we are not held guilty of murder. [Exodus 22:2-3]
When the Israelites were sent back from captivity to rebuild Jerusalem, they were rebuilding their lives with the sanction of the civil ruler, King Artaxerxes. This was not a wartime scenario; it was closer to a racial integration scenario where racists wanted to kill them. They were justified to defend themselves. [Nehemiah 4:8-9, 10-23] They carried their weapons with them, as many people legally carry weapons with them today, for the purpose of self-protection. [Nehemiah 4:17] Those who were rebuilding the Jerusalem wall and those who carried burdens took their load with one hand doing the work and the other holding a weapon.
In the book of Esther we have a historical example arranged by Divine Providence when the Jews are under threat of racial violence. The civil authority, King Ahasuerus, granted them legal permission to use lethal force in self-defense. [Esther 8:11-12, 9:1-5] We see that given legal sanction to "protect their lives," they used the "sword." (Exther 8:5, 11)
Many may be thinking this is only relegated to Old Testament principles. Not so … the Lord Jesus told His apostles to buy a sword. [Luke 22:35-39] Jesus expected them to have swords and anticipated a time when those without swords would need to acquire them for protection. It is difficult to make absolute claims beyond these observations, but the observations themselves have significance. Namely, among those closest to Jesus, some carried personal weapons in His presence with His consent. However, in ‘The Garden of Gethsemane’ [Luke 22:49-53; Matthew 26:51-56; John 18:10-11] Jesus is saying [paraphrase], "Though we have a right to employ our swords in defense of this unrighteous arrest, we are intentionally putting aside our lawful right, and I am allowing Myself to be taken without resistance."
Why Christ tells Peter to put up the sword: Christ is willingly laying down His life to save mankind of their sin. Although He had the right to use sword and angelic legions to deliver Himself from this unjust arrest (Luke 22:51, John 18:11) He did not.
Believers should be conscious that personal self-defense weapons are legitimatized by the Scriptures, just as the use of any other tool such as cooking, carpentry, electronics, plumbing, etc. Though heavenly beings do battle and render judgments with the sword, in the perfection pictured in both the garden of Eden [Genesis 3:22-24] and in the Heavenly city [Revelation 21:1-2, 3-8], all who honor and worship almighty God know our primary activities are fellowship with the Lord, other believers and living in peace.
God said, “If the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman's hand."

Concealed Weapon Carry Laws in USA
also Stand Your Ground States
9-5-19, American Thinker -- Since 2015, residents of the state of Maine have been allowed to carry a concealed firearm without any special permit, and now the results are in: crime has fallen to the point where the state is now rated the safest in the nation from the threat of crime. [..snip] Eight states have no requirement for concealed carry permit Maine ... Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming also have a constitutional legal "carry" law.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens decrease crime. That's fact and has been statistically demonstrated by John Lott’s pathbreaking book, More Guns, Less Crime, a rick-solid statistical analysis showing that when states pass “shall issue” concealed carry laws, crime goes down. New Orleans, Baltimore & Chicago should take note. Gun violence stats here
Forbes.com - Since 2001 more deaths in Chicago's gun free zone than the Middle East wars.
In 2012 at least 8 million [up to 13 million] law abiding Americans had an active permit to carry a concealed weapon according to a report by the Government Accountability Office.
States That Have Stand Your Ground Laws
Many states have enacted so-called stand your ground laws that remove any duty to retreat before using force in self-defense. Florida passed the first such law in 2005.
Some states have self-defense laws that are similar to stand your ground but with one key difference. While they also remove any duty to retreat, these laws apply to specific locations such as one's home or place of work and are often referred to as "castle doctrine" or "defense of habitation" laws; most U.S. states have castle doctrine laws.
Types of Self-Defense Laws: Although some states use a blend of doctrines, self-defense laws generally fall into the following three categories:
- Stand Your Ground: No duty to retreat from the situation before resorting to deadly force; not limited to your home, place of work, etc.
- Castle Doctrine: No duty to retreat before using deadly force if you are in your home or yard (some states include place of work and occupied vehicles).
- Duty to Retreat: Duty to retreat from a threatening situation if you can do so with complete safety.
Stand Your Ground States : It's important to understand that even states that have stand your ground laws still have certain restrictions when it comes to using force in self-defense. States that have passed stand your ground laws include:

History Professor at UNC, Jay Smith said: "I took a UNC/Duke graduate course on Islam back in 1985, when I was a graduate student at Chapel Hill. Even that many years ago, the violent aspects of Islamic doctrine were downplayed and whitewashed. There is no doubt whatsoever that in the intervening years, the impulse to absolve Islam of all responsibility for the crimes committed in its name and in accord with its teachings has only intensified."

Apparently the issue was brought to court in Colorado in 2017 ... certain women want the same freedom men have to go without a shirt. According to ruling by the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals the decision finds it unconstitutional to prevent women to be naked as a man. Since the 10th Circuit encompasses six states - the decision makes it now illegal for any town in those six states to forbid women to appear in public baring their chests.

Feast of Tabernacles
Also known as Sukkot or Feast of Booths. This year is celebrated from October 13, 2019 to October 20, 2019 it’s the 15th day in the Jewish calendar’s first month of Tishrei.
"Also you shall observe the Feast of the Harvest of the first fruits of your labors from what you sow in the field; also the Feast of the Ingathering at the end of the year when you gather in the fruit of your labors from the field."
10-11-19, * -- The Feast of Tabernacles [like all the feasts] is commanded by the Lord God; one of the three feasts that Jews were to observe by going to “appear before the Lord your God in the place which He shall choose.” (Deuteronomy 16:16)
The importance of the Feast of Tabernacles can be seen in how many places it is mentioned in Scripture: Ezra 3:4; Exodus 23:14-16, 34:22-23; Deuteronomy 16:13; 1 Kings 8:2; Nehemiah 8:13-18.
The annual commemoration is a way of reminding Israelites in every generation of God's deliverance. At the time the fall harvest, it’s a time of joyous celebration as the Israelites celebrate God’s continued provision and protection.
It begins and ends with a special Sabbath day of rest. During the days of the feast all native Israelites were “to dwell in booths” to remind them that God delivered them out of the “land of Egypt” as they wandered in the wilderness 40 years.
The same holds true for today's Christians. God protects us and provides for us as we go through life in the wilderness of this world. While our hearts long for the Promised Land (heaven) and to be in the presence of God as we pray, watch and pray for Messiah Jesus' second coming.
The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'On the fifteenth of this seventh month is the Feast of Booths for seven days to the LORD.” Leviticus 23:33-34, 35-44

School Girl, 13, Charged With Felony
Taken From Middle School in Handcuffs
She Pointed 'finger gun' at classmates
According to the Kansas City Star, the girl was having a discussion with a classmate who asked if she could kill five people in the room, who would they be. The girl responded by allegedly making a finger gun and pointing it at four students and then pointing it at herself.
Jon Cavanaugh, the girl's grandfather, told the Kansas City Star, "This has gotten completely out of hand. It should have been handled in the Principal's office and not with a felony charge; she does not have access to a gun. She was just mouthing off and now I'm really worried about her future."
A spokesperson for the Johnson County District Attorney's Office said after reviewing the evidence, the girl was charged with criminal threat, which is a felony offense and is due to appear in court next week. More here

Joe Biden Implicated Barack Obama in Ukraine Quid Pro Quo
9-24-19, PJMedia -- Obama has not been shy when it comes to criticizing his successor, but he's been MIA when it comes to defending his former vice president, Joe Biden. This Ukraine business is another matter entirely. Obama should be out there because his own vice president has been accused of a quid pro quo. Obama may want to be neutral in the 2020 Democrat primary, but his administration has a fresh quid pro quo allegation and Obama remains tight-lipped about it. Biden can't seem to handle this scandal alone; recently he outright lied about whether he discussed his son Hunter Biden's business dealings with Ukraine.
We Ask Ourselves, 'What would Jesus do?'
Righteous anger and action was in His playbook!
"The Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: He had made a scourge of small cords whip and drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables. He said unto them that sold doves, "Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise."
10-10-19, We know the song 'I want to be more like Jesus' ... too often born again Christians think they must be mild and weak never becoming angry. Oh, but there are times when righteous anger is called for. Like the time the Lord Jesus became angry when He found 'money changers' in the Temple. The corrupt "money changers" were cheating and oppressing the people who came to pay homage to the living God.
He physically threw them out with a whip throwing over their tables; clearly He was no sissy!

Numerically, the Kurds are estimated to number between 30 and 45 million.

Everything Beautiful in His Time
Enjoy Good of Labor; Gift From God
King Solomon wrote: “The Lord God made everything beautiful in His time: also He has set the world in their heart, so that no person can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice and to do good in his life. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God. I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it.”
10-9-19, * -- God has painted time with changes; it’s a kaleidoscopic of movement of innumerable processes that will be seen in the end as it's “beautiful in His time.” It may look a mess up close, just as putting your face too near a big painting will distort the view; stepping back puts it in better perspective. One day we will step back, look at the finished canvas of God’s perfect creation and maybe understand.
For those of us who have eternity in our hearts enjoying the fruits of our labor have received the gift of God. (Ecclesiastes 3:12). It is the grace of God that enables us to leave the explanations of the hows & whys of God’s eternal plan till heaven. This faith [Matthew 17:20] will help us to understand that God will do us good all our lives. [Jeremiah 29:11]

President Trump says US hasn’t ‘abandoned’ Kurds
10-8-19, NYPost.com -- Pres Trump said, "Our relationship with Turkey, a NATO and Trading partner, has been very good. Turkey already has a large Kurdish population and fully understands that while we only had 50 soldiers remaining in that section of Syria, and they have been removed, any unforced or unnecessary fighting by Turkey will be devastating to their economy and to their very fragile currency. We are helping the Kurds financially with weapons! So many people conveniently forget that Turkey is a big trading partner of the United States, in fact they make the structural steel frame for our F-35 Fighter Jet. They have also been good to deal with, helping me to save many lives at Idlib Province, and returning last October, ... Pastor Brunson. Pres Erdogan coming to US for visit Nov 13, 2019.”
Turkey’s Erdogan Has Grand Plans for al Qaeda’s Syrian ...
10-7-19, DailyBeast -- Turkish President Erdogan cut a deal last month with Russia to stop a massacre in northern Syria? Michael Weiss said [excerpt]: "For years, ISIS has watched as America’s reliance on the YPG/PKK [Kurds] has enervated the second-largest army in NATO [Turkey]... Pres Trump considers the Middle East a place of sand, death, and oil that America isn’t stealing but should. ... We suspect that Pres Trump thinks the latest [in Syria] is a manifestation of a regional pathology, and not an unforced error of lousy U.S. policy-planning. Many believe ISIS will resurge [that Turkey has promised to quell], does the US have reason to remain in the region? It seems like there is no exit strategy — that we will stay pinned down in Syria forever. Are we prepared to do that?"
President Trump's Turkey Syria Decision
Advances Prophecy Clock
"Behold, an he goat [Turkey] came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. And he came to the ram [Iran] that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand. Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven."
10-8-19, Bill Wilson -- President Donald Trump's agreement to allow Turkey to invade Northern Syria endangers the lives of Kurdish allies, Christians in the area, and advances the prophecy clock. This is a foreign policy decision where withdrawing American troops in the area could very well allow the mass genocide of Kurds who loyally supported the US in the fight against ISIS. Turkey long has wanted to attack the Kurds in Syria, which Turkish dictator "president" Recep Tayyip Erdogan believes pose a threat to Turkey's national security. Iran [aka Persia] also seeks to control the Kurds. This foreign policy decision by the US president has the makings of converging Iran and Turkey into a conflict that has massive end-time implications. [Col Douglas MacGregor [retired] Agrees that Turkey & Iran will be at 'loggerheads']
According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Iran has made incredible advances toward controlling the Middle East in Syria, Iraq, Kurdistan, and Lebanon. In Daniel 8:19, Gabriel says, "Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. The ram which you saw having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia." Strong's Concordance interprets the word "Grecia" in Hebrew as "Yavan, a son of Japheth (the third son of Noah), his descendants and their land." The Genesis 10:2 table of nations indicates this area was not only Greece (as Bible interpretations imply), but also the Eastern Mediterranean, including parts of modern Turkey (Magog, Tubal, Meshech). The ram would correspond with modern Iran. [Daniel 8:5-8, 11:2-4]
Turkey also has been making moves to cement power over the Middle East. In January, 2019, after the US announced it was pulling out of Syria, Erdogan met with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russia supports Iran. Syria is a vassal state of Iran. A 1998 agreement between Russia and Turkey, according to Bloomberg, "states that Syria won't permit any activity on its territory that would jeopardize Turkey's security." Russia's President Putin was leveraging the 1998 agreement to say that Syria will take care of the Kurds in Syrian territory, hoping that Turkey will restore ties with Syria. Prophecy will eventually bring clarity to this complex situation, and it appears that the US president Trump is accelerating that clarity.
"Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia. 3And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. 4And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those." Daniel 11:2-4
