Short List of 2017 Major World Events
1-1-18, * -- President Trump is not your ordinary elected official; after 12 months we can clearly see that he wants to go down in history as the greatest American president. Thus, when afforded the opportunity to do things his predecessors would not have touched with a ten-foot pole, he, of course, makes that his number one agenda.
Islamic terror group ISIS; Obama called them the jayvee team  while simultaneously hamstringing the military’s response to them. In return, they quickly and violently seized Iraq and Syria. When Pres T took over, he simply gave a blanket directive to destroy ISIS and then got out of the way. Now ISIS in Iraq and Syria have largely been decimated through the technical and tactical support for the Kurds and Iraqi Army, as well as direct-action operations by US forces in Syria.
BREXIT [Britain Exits European Union]: The people voted in the summer of 2016, everyone assumed that it would be a relatively straightforward issue. The British people voted to leave the EU and thus it should be so. However, reasons & various issues arose delaying the actual departure from the EU therefore no substantive conclusion has been found. Can the UK actually break away from the EU’s bureaucratic tentacles?
“Russian collusion” in the presidential election? The investigation is really just prison-insurance. It’s become a massive deflection operation to keep the Trump Administration on the defense in order to prevent the president from following through on his "you'd be in jail" comment to Mrs Clinton during their second debate. Unlike his predecessor, Pres T has yet to morph into the Russian Manchurian candidate they all claimed he would become.
Germany: Chancellor, Angela Merkel is currently unpopular stemming from her open borders and immigration stance which has seen the flood of Muslim migrants into the nation causing Islamic crime and terrorism to blossom. 
Damascus, Syria is nothing more than a giant rubble-farm. With aggressive Iranian intrusion and development in Syria and multiple Israeli strikes against said encroachment, the utter destruction option is moving from the impossible category to the inevitable.
Iran is in turmoil as the populace is in protest over domestic issues as well as objection to the nation supporting Syria, Lebanon and other warring nations.
Israel has a staunch supporter in President Trump and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. They very bluntly told the UN members that whoever voted against them in that highly symbolic and non-binding vote against the US recognition of Israel would be remembered. [The USA has pulled $285 million in support of the UN – surely more punishment is forthcoming.]
We (believers in Messiah Jesus Christ) know that the way the world is, is not the way it was intended to be. God has something much better in store for those who are His. The Good News is, that anyone can be part of His family. May this new year find you both in His hands and looking up!
Happy New Year and Maranatha!

1 John 5:13
5-26-21, Israel has only 8000 square miles of land - the Muslims have 5 million. Yet, they want what the Jews have too. Out of all the nations of the world, the Lord chose the descendants of Jacob [Jews], not Esau [Muslims], to be His covenant people - the descendants of Abraham and wife Sarah. (Genesis 17:19-21; Malachi 1:1–5).
2-12-21, When we look at the truth of God and His requirement for salvation we realize there's only two 'religions.' WORKS or FAITH': Whether it be Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, Mormonism that all preach doing certain 'works' to achieve forgiveness and eternal life with God; OR FAITH: repentance and trust in the finish work of Jesus living for Him. Ephesians 2:8-10, John 3:36.
✝️ 6-8-20, Jesus is God; He came to save sinners. “For He [Jesus] Whom God sent speaks the words of God: The Father loves the Son & has given all things into His hand. He that believs on the Son hath everlasting life & they that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on them.” John 3:34-36
✝️ 6-7-20, The Lord □ Jesus spoke from the cross first of forgiveness, salvation then of His Mother's care into John's hands. He spoke of being forsaken & then triumph as His task as human was complete shedding His perfect blood for the forgiveness of sins to all who repent believing in Him. His body was thirsty. And last of His reunion with the Father. Matthew 27:46; Luke 23:34, 43, 46; John 19:26-28, 30; Mark 15:34
✝️ 5-7-20, Sins □ Jesus Harshly Condemns; He said, “God knows our hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. V9 For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” [Pride] Luke 16:15, 18:9-14; Hebrews 1:8-9
