Fact Check Reveals Misnomer: [fake news]
Russia in 2010 PM Putin referred to the 'blending of religion and government' not the faith aspect of the 'religions'
16th December 2010, Moscow – Conversation with then Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin:
"Caucasians must not be afraid to live in Moscow or Russians to live in the North Caucasus. All citizens of Russia of whatever faith or nationality must recognize that we have a single common Motherland. From very beginning Russia was built up as a multi-national and multi-confessional state. The state exists to serve the interests of the majority. You know, we have Eastern Christianity and certain theoreticians say that it is much closer to Islam than [Roman] Catholicism is.”
Apparently Putin suggested there are major differences between Christianity and Islam, but unity of state and religious power. Orthodox Christians and Muslims are better able to understand their political theories because they have something in common than Western Christians and the Islamic world, where the idea of the fusion of state and religion is generally anathema.
Many suggest that the pretensions of the Russian Orthodox Church claiming to speak for all Russians imposing its views on Russian society; has caused Russian Muslims to increasingly feel like second class citizens.
As Russian Orthodoxy and Islam have this similarity [blend of religion and government], their fight may be more bitter than between Western Christendom and Islam, where an increasing number of Muslims, especially in Europe and the US, have come to share the view of Christians that a religiously neutral state is better.

President of Russia Vladimir Putin & Religion
Vladimir Putin was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia on October 7, 1952. He has been the President of the Russian Federation since May 7, 2012. He was also Russian Prime Minister from 1999 to 2000, President from 2000 to 2008, and Prime Minister from 2008 to 2012. His father was an atheist and his mother was an Orthodox Christian. Vladimir was baptized into the Orthodox Church as an infant.1
In an interview with Russian journalists published in 2000, Putin explained the significance of his well-known Orthodox cross pendant: "In 1993, when I worked on the Leningrad City Council, I went to Israel as part of an official delegation. Mama gave me my baptismal cross to get it blessed at the Lord's Tomb. I did as she said and then put the cross around my neck. I have never taken it off since."1 here
Yes, because of the world news media reports, most people believe all Pres Putin's 'fruit' is bad fruit ... however there are conflicting reports [here] of his good fruit and conflict with NATO. Matthew 7:16, 20, 12:33
Good News But Still Bad News: Abortions in the United States Hit New All-Time Low, More Babies Saved From Abortion Than Ever
11-21-18, According to the Washington Post's new report by the US Centers for Disease Control that showed abortions at an all-time low since 1973, the year when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade. They recorded 638,169 abortions in 2015, a 2-percent drop from 2014. More from LifeNews
Newsmax reports the abortion rate declined to 11.8 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age. That's a 26-percent decline since 2006.
Comparing racial demographics the highest abortion rate was among black women at 25.1 abortions per 1,000 and the lowest was among white women at 6.8 per 1,000. Age comparisons indicate women in their 20s had the highest abortion rate. More here
Margaret Sanger (1879 - 1966) was the founder of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
As an activist in the birth-control and population-control movements, she was one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century.
Many questions have been raised concerning Sanger's real views on eugenics, race and human rights and it's hard to separate the facts from fiction. The information presented here is drawn directly from her writings, with references. Her obsession with eugenics and racism was clearly presented in her involvement of planning the First World Population Conference which took place in Geneva in 1926. More here
According to the CDC among teenagers, the rate declined even more drastically – a full 54 percent since 2006. In comparison to live births, the CDC reported 188 abortions per 1,000 live births, a 19-percent drop from 2006.
Want a comfortable retirement?
Richard Quinn's Ten Commandments
2. Remember that Social Security is designed to replace no more than 40% of pre-retirement income—and for many, that 40% is an overestimate, because the benefit calculation is skewed toward lower income Americans.
3. Have a financial and estate plan that provides for your spouse and any others who depend on you financially—and who may outlive you. Income annuities, investment income streams and life insurance.
4. Never forget the non-financial aspects of your retirement; consider possible significant relocation long before you retire—and try it out first. It’s a big mistake to think of retirement purely as leisure time; fun stuff takes money.
5. Pay attention to communications from your employer, Social Security, Medicare, personal advisers and others. What you don’t know can hurt you. A missed deadline and any number of other goofs can do severe financial damage.
6. Put retirement savings ahead of other goals, like college or a vacation home. Unless you have a good pension plus Social Security.
7. Save as much as possible as soon as possible. Load up on savings early in your career and let the money work for you in the decades that follow.
8. Recognize that your taxes may not be lower during retirement. All the signs point to higher taxes in the future for everyone.
9. Place health care high on your list of fixed expenses. Medicare plus supplemental insurance can cost a retired couple more than $700 a month. Remember that Medicare has no out-of-pocket limits.
10. Invest in ways that will provide a steady income stream in retirement. In many ways, retirement is no different from your working years: Do not be totally exposed to stock market fluctuations. You don’t want to worry about where that 4% withdrawal rate will come from each year.

11-23-18, In summary, once again Harvard and Yale scientists studied the feasibility of using aircraft, balloons or modified naval gun to bombard the atmosphere with particles that would block out the sun [also done in 2014].
CNN said: Harvard and Yale scientists are proposing that we tackle climate change by dimming the sun. It sounds crazy, but according to their research, it could actually cut the rate of global warming in half: https://cnn.it/2R8SBO6
Solar Geoengineering: Weighing Costs of Blocking the Sun's Heat
2014, Yale -- In the face of anticipated rapid climate change ... smart move is to intensively study both the positive and negative effects of using a small fleet of jets to inject sulfate aerosols high into the atmosphere to block a portion of the sun’s rays...

We have been justified by faith in Christ Jesus
The devil, took Jesus up into a high mountain and said unto Him, 'All this power will I give Thee for that is delivered unto me and to whomsoever I will I give it. If Thou wilt worship me, all shall be thine.'
11-21-18, * -- In 1798 President John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other [here].” [That explains Obama's disdain for the US Constitution.--Forbes, 2013 here]
In the 2018 version of America, on the surface, there doesn't seem to be a lot to be thankful for. Wildfires, hurricanes, typhoons, mass shootings, lawless migrant caravans, a nation divided, political witch-hunts, mob violence and leftist media frenzy have all become part of the new normal. Issues like gender and marriage that should not be controversial, simply due to common sense aspects, now are. Men want to be women and women ... men. Islam is somehow peaceful. Christianity is somehow hateful. Everything seems turned upside down and inside out. [Isaiah 5:20]
The newer generations are angry and offended about anything and everything. They demand we upend 6,000 years of human history, to accommodate their “outrage.” Victim-identity has become fashionable. Currently people who do not wholly endorse the destructive and unnatural ideologies and lifestyles of the left are ostracized and seen as narrow-minded bigots labeled homophobic, islamophobic, xenophobic, etc. The root of it all, is the overwhelming sense of generational entitlement as justification for their depravity and decadence. The reason the unregenerate heart is restless and angry... they are anti God seeking answers to questions God programmed them to have:
- Who am I?
- What is my purpose in life?
- What comes after this life?
God specifically designed us to have a relationship with Him for eternity [Ecclesiastes 3:11]. However, we can only do that, when we have been regenerated and reconciled [Colossians 1:21-22] to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. This is most offensive to the egotistical wicked that mankind cannot save themselves. Christ did what no other person could ever do [John 14:6]; take on the form of a Man, redeem mankind unto Himself through a perfect life and death and then rise from death.
We, in the last hours of the last days, have come full circle. It’s why today's world, seems so eerily reminiscent of the days of Noah. While building the ark, he faithfully and dutifully [and unsuccessfully], preached God's righteousness to the wicked masses warning them of the danger coming. (Genesis 6:5, Luke 17:26-27, 2 Peter 2:5) Alas, history is repeating.
Jesus said: “It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." Luke 4:4
"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified." Romans 8:28-30

President Trump Crossing the Washington DC Swamp
Penn Law Prof Amy Wax expects the threat against politically incorrect college professors to get worse; she said:
“Professors who hold unpopular positions or state inconvenient facts are now considered psychologically toxic. If their presence causes offense, distress, feelings of insult, fears of ill treatment, that is enough to eject them from the classroom. And of course, these perceptions and feelings are subjective, they are self-confirming, they are immune from challenge. It’s all in the mind of the beholder; and the beholder’s mind reigns supreme.”
However, Prof Wax is accustomed to political wrong think; her credentials:
- bachelor’s degree from Yale College
- medical degree from Harvard
- law degree from Columbia
- argued 15 cases before the Supreme Court on behalf of the Justice Department
Solution: She wants and demands debate, evidence and accountability.
The straw that broke the camel’s back happened when student activists searching for dirt on Wax unearthed a 2017 podcast interview she did with economist and Brown University professor Glenn Loury  when she said about the issue of affirmative action: “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a black student graduate in the top quarter of (my) class, and rarely, rarely, in the top half. I can think of one or two students who scored in the first half of my required first-year Civil Procedure course.” More here
The video was a September 2017 interview between Wax and Brown University professor Glenn Loury in which Wax said she didn't think she'd ever seen a black student graduate in the top quarter of the class at Penn Law and "rarely, rarely in the top half."
Loury said: "I believe that Dean Ruger's actions against Amy Wax at Penn Law — responding to public pressure no less — were reprehensible, and deserve to be condemned."

We Can Learn About Prayer From the OT Prophet Elijah
“Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.”
4-6-2016, * -- Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he earnestly prayed that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth again yielded its crops. We read in the Old Testament that he lived an amazing life:
- He was fed by ravens 1 Kings 17:5-6
- He saw the widow’s supply of oil and flour miraculously never run out 1 Kings 17:16
- He raised widow's son back to life 1 Kings 17:21-22
- He faced down the prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel 1 Kings 18:16-20
- He called down fire from heaven to consume the offering on Mount Carmel 2 Kings 1:12
- He was snatched off the earth in a ‘rapture’ 2 Kings 2:11
How can we ordinary people, like Elijah, experience the power of God moving in response to our prayers? We must confess our sins and pray for each other so we may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16
Thanksgiving Proclamations in USA
All Professing Gratefulness to Almighty God
First Proclamation Was in 1777 AD
"O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever."
11-21-18, As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, we must remember to retain the original gratefulness to God that has always been the spirit of this – the oldest of all American holidays. Clearly it had nothing to do with the native Indians and everything to do with gratefulness to almighty God. Below are excerpts of Thanksgiving proclamations penned by various US Founding Fathers. It was made an official legal holiday by Abraham Lincoln in 1863:
". . . thanksgiving and praise [so] that “the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts and join . . . their supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, to forgive [our sins] and . . . to enlarge [His] kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.”
Continental Congress, 1777 – written by SIGNERS OF THE DECLARATION SAMUEL ADAMS AND RICHARD HENRY LEE
" a day of public Thanksgiving to Almighty God . . . to [ask] Him that He would . . . pour out His Holy Spirit on all ministers of the Gospel; that He would . . . spread the light of Christian knowledge through the remotest corners of the earth; . . . and that He would establish these United States upon the basis of religion and virtue."
GOVERNOR THOMAS JEFFERSON, 1779
"Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor. . . . Now, therefore, I do appoint Thursday, the 26th day of November 1789 . . . that we may all unite to render unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection.
PRESIDENT GEORGE WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1789
"a day of public thanksgiving and praise . . . to render to God the tribute of praise for His unmerited goodness towards us . . . [by giving to] us . . . the Holy Scriptures which are able to enlighten and make us wise to eternal salvation. And [to] present our supplications...that He would forgive our manifold sins and . . . cause the benign religion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to be known, understood, and practiced among all the inhabitants of the earth."
GOVERNOR JOHN HANCOCK, 1791
President Abraham Lincoln, Oct 3, 1863:
"…I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union."
America Has Built 900+ Military Bases Worldwide At an Annual Cost of $1 Trillion - So Why Can't It Build A Wall on Our Own Southern Border?
The 900+ military bases around the world has a budget of $1 Trillion annually. Yet thus far, US leaders have placed many stumbling blocks in the path of completing the security wall for the USA on her southern border of 1,954 miles. It's cost would be a mere $70 billion; and compared to the cost of maintaining all the illegal migrants flooding the nation between $116 billion and $135 billion annually [here] and [here]... a bargain.
In March 2018, Congress passed its trillion-dollar spending bill; that had only $1.6 billion for border security. A pittance for Americans and multiple billions for foreign lands; outrageous! The Trump administration has one last chance – with a Republican lame duck [soon to be out of office replaced by Democrats] Congress still in place – to secure funding for the US-Mexican border wall. Time is ticking as Dems take control in January 2019 ... about six weeks. More here
Proposed US Southern Border Wall: The administration has asked for:
- for years 2018 & 2019 $3.2 billion to build or replace 74 miles of barriers in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley and San Diego
- the 1,954 mile border wall has been projected to cost appx $70 billion to build. [We pay appx $120 billion annually to maintain illegal migrants] [here]
Doomed Star in Milky Way Threatens Rare Gamma-Ray Burst
The system, comprising a pair of scorchingly luminous stars, was nicknamed Apep the serpentine Egyptian god of chaos. One star is on the brink of a massive supernova explosion.
The findings, say Nature Astronomy, are controversial as no gamma-ray burst has ever been detected within our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Fortunately, Apep appears not to be aimed at Earth, because a strike by a gamma-ray burst from this proximity could strip ozone from the atmosphere, drastically increasing our exposure to UV light from the Sun.
Professor Tuthill said, "Ultimately, we can't be certain what the future has in store for Apep. The system might slow down enough so it explodes as a normal supernova rather than a gamma-ray burst. However, in the meantime, it is providing astronomers a ringside seat into beautiful and dangerous physics that we have not seen before in our galaxy." More here Live Science here

If Not for Barzillai History May Be Different
Old Man Barzillai Gave Hospitality and Protection to King David When He Was On the Run ... the King Honored Barzillai ... But he said, I Would Be a Useless Burden on the King
Archives of Billy Graham: 'Without Barzillai, the history of God's people might have been vastly different. In one of the saddest events in the Bible, King David's son, Absalom revolted against his father attempting to take the throne by force.
David and his men fled for their lives and by the time they reached the vicinity of old man Barzillai's home, they were out of supplies and in danger of starvation. Barzillai came to their aid and David's army was saved.
Barzillai was eighty when this happened, and he easily could have said, 'I'm too old to do anything," or 'It's too risky; with if Absalom wins?"
But he didn't. We never know when our smallest efforts may be useful and important no matter what our age.

The Wedding Garment: Ready for the Sky
“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”
11-19-18, * -- It is time for the Lord's church to preach the great truth of being ready for the Lord's call; we must be repentant and reborn in the Lord. [Matthew 7:13-14] Woe to the preachers who do not preach Biblical holiness. The Bride is the sanctified saints and the Bridegroom is the crucified, but resurrected Lamb of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Father gave His Son that His Son might purify His Bride.
The very heart of the Father in creating Adam and Eve and commanding them to multiply was out of a family love and passion. He had a family of angels that filled His eternal city with praise, but He also wanted a human family that His Son may be the Bridegroom.
In the Old Testament the Psalmist King David surely walked with God and was given a peep into the "Royal Wedding." First, he spoke of this coming King/Messiah and declared Him with a glorious sense of His lofty statue. (Psalm 45:1-6) By the spirit of prophecy, David saw this future wedding supper and described the details. (Psalm 45:7-8) What a prophetic picture of the "Bride of Christ" soon to enter into her glorious triumph of the ages:
- Isaiah saw her rising from the dust of death to enter her chamber of nuptial glory. (Isaiah 26:19-21)
- Malachi spoke for the Bridegroom and called her "My Jewels." (Malachi 3:17)
- Solomon saw her as beautiful (Song of Solomon 2:10-13
How does "His wife" make herself ready? (Revelation 19:7)
Jesus Himself said: "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares... Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." (Luke 21:34-36).
King Jesus will come for that Bride any hour and she will be fully prepared in her wedding attire. Apostle Paul made it clear that she would be without defilement or blemish. (Ephesians 5: 25-27)
The climax of the 'Marriage Supper of the Lamb" [Rev 19:9] is best seen in the Book of Revelation. The Revelation of Jesus Christ is His unveiling of Himself and those things that relate to His completed revelations. We are in the very center of this unveiling. He identified His espoused Bride in five different offices in this one book:
- His church in Revelation 1:4-11, 2:1-12, 3:1-22
- His elders unveiling judgments to redeem the earth Revelation 4:10-11
- His army return with the Lord in the air Revelation 19:4-11
- His priests to reign on this earth to with the King Jesus Revelation 5:10
- His bride for eternity [born again repentant sinners Luke 13:3; John 2:3, 7] Revelation 21:1; 22:5
My friend, do not be a fool to think that our Lord uttered some kind of meaningless warning. It will be too late to beg forgiveness once the Rapture has come. This world is nothing but a sideshow, while the kingdom of God is in preparation to be revealed. If you haven’t repented and turned to the Lord … it’s not too late. Salvation Scriptures Here
California: Pastor Crowder of the Magalia Pines Baptist Church Reports,
‘We Prayed and Are Totally Unscathed’
Miraculous Survival From Wildfire Despite Church Group Being Surrounded By Raging Inferno
With nowhere to run for escape, the group sprinted back inside the church building, huddled together and prayed. They could hear the roaring sound of flames ripping through buildings and the deafening blast of propane canisters detonating at a neighboring hardware store.
"We cried out to God for protection and He answered."
Despite the entire town of Magalia being leveled to the ground, and most of Paradise that is five miles away, staggeringly the church building remains unscathed. The entire group huddled inside praying the entire night without suffering any injury whatsoever. Pastor Crowder said, "It'll be years before Magalia is a town again, but all through that, our church will be standing and our church will be ministering as a beacon of hope as this small town community attempts to rebuild from the ashes."
The building of Magalia Baptist is being used as shelter to many who lost their homes. The members will feed and help people clean up as soon as possible sharing the love of Christ to everyone. More here

IMMIGRATION VIEWS FROM:
1996 Pres Bill Clinton
2003 Mrs Clinton
2006 Senator Obama
They agree with President Trump; at least they used to.
"All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected, but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers; that's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan. We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it."

April 3, 2006, Transcript Excerpt:
"The American people are a welcoming and generous people. But those who enter our country illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law. And because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked. Americans are right to demand better border security and better enforcement of the immigration laws." Source: https://goo.gl/HUJCkY
Jan 31, 2018 - Pres Trump is going full-steam ahead with his immigration agenda. He wants migrants to come in legally; and employers to stop hiring them just like Mrs Clinton said in 2003. His focus in on improving the lives of American Citizens and those migrants who come in illegally are criminals. They are disrespecting our laws just like Obama said in 2006. Yes, if you commit a crime you are a criminal. He wants Americans to have the jobs the migrants are taking just like Bill Clinton warned in 1996. https://goo.gl/G4xRTf
