Born Again Christians
Just like the UK the USA has governments that are run by lunatics and maniacs. But the Christian has an ethical choice in the USA where they can choose to vote TRUMP to save the lives of unborn babies.
Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden has been accused of using his office of Vice President to enrich his son Hunter and other family members Hunter's laptop provided the smoking gun evidence, but there is now another source with even more dark dealings. The mainstream news media is reluctant to cover the story because it doesn't fit the narrative of the man the media wants to be president. In fact, the news media has abrogated its responsibility to cover the news by informing America of the facts surrounding this abuse of power and network of shady business dealings. And they are letting Joe Biden off the hook by allowing him to not answer questions about these unethical and possibly illegal dealings.
Breitbart News reports: "Joe Biden is still refusing to discuss an exposé by the New York Post alleging the former vice president's youngest son, Hunter, leveraged his ties to the Obama administration for the benefit of a Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate. The Democrat nominee, who has long struggled to explain his son's overseas business deals, was asked about the story during a campaign swing through North Carolina on Sunday. Biden, in particular, was asked by a reporter if he had any comment about revelations that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had seized Hunter's laptop last year via subpoena...the Democrat nominee refused to even listen to the reporter's question, opting to walk away as soon as the reporter mentions the word "FBI."
The plot thickens. Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer said Hunter Biden's former business partner Bevan Cooney provided 26,000 emails to him. Cooney is currently serving a sentence in federal prison due to financial deals he made connected to Hunter Biden and his other partner Devon Archer. Archer, also convicted by a federal jury, awaits sentencing. Cooney provided Schweizer written authorization to access his Gmail account because Cooney believes he was the "fall guy" for the Biden family's corruption and that he believes the public needs to know. The first Breitbart article from the emails detailed how Hunter Biden and his partners secured meetings with senior White House officials in November 2011 for Chinese Communist elites-including a secret meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden himself.
Breitbart reports, "The Biden campaign has not responded to requests for comment about this from Breitbart News." This is a page out of the Hillary Clinton playbook: deny, deny, deny, then don't respond, then accuses others of a conspiracy. This looks strangely familiar to 2016. While Clinton was accusing Donald Trump of shady business deals with Russia, she and her cronies were actually doing them, now the same with Biden on Russia, China and Ukraine. This Hidden Biden Scandal is organized crime. People need to know about it. Let us pray Mark 4:22 over this situation, "For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light." Tell everyone you know.
And the light of the moon shall become like the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall become sevenfold, like the light of the seven days, when Hashem binds up His people's wounds and heals the injuries it has suffered. Isaiah 30:26 (The Israel BibleTM)
As children dress up and wander the streets begging for candy on Halloween, an extra "blue moon" will be shining overhead. At face value, it seems that the additional moon symbolizes the rise of evil in the world three days before the presidential election but one rabbi explains that an "extra" appearance of the moon accompanied the destruction of Sodom.
HALLOWEEN BLUE MOON
As usual, the full Harvest Moon, the full moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox, will appear on Friday, October 1, but another full moon will appear on Saturday, October 31, investing the month of October with an extra moon, referred to in American folklore as a blue moon. The phrase in modern usage has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon. A blue moon is an additional full moon that appears in a subdivision of a year: either the third of four full moons in a season or a second full moon in a month of the common calendar resulting in a calendar year with 13 full moons. The phenomenon is relatively rare, occurring once every 2.5-3 years, hence the idiom, "Once in a blue moon."
But the blue moon this year taking place on Halloween is even rarer, appearing every 19 years in some time zones. A Halloween blue moon was seen in 2001 but the last time before that was in 1955. The next Halloween blue moon will appear in 20139.
It should be emphasized that the concept of a blue moon is irrelevant to the Jewish calendar. Jewish months begin with a New Moon and end the day before the next New Moon, so each Jewish month can have only one New Moon.
The Bible describes such astronomical phenomena as a divine sign.
Hashem said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate day from the night; they shall serve as signs for the set times-the days and the years." Genesis 1:14
An extra moon, or an increase of the moon, is predicted in the Talmud (Hulin 60b) to take place in the end-of-days based on a verse in Genesis.
Hashem made the two great lights, the greater light to dominate the day and the lesser light to dominate the night, and the stars. Genesis 1:16
Though initially described in equal terms, the verse then noted the sun and the moon were not equal, with the sun being called the "greater light" and the moon the "lesser light". The Talmud explains that when God created the sun and the moon they were equal in every manner, including size and intensity. The moon complained, saying, "Two kings cannot share one crown." God agreed and diminished the moon, compensating it by commanding Israel to set the calendar by its cycles while also commanding Israel to bring an additional sin offering on the new moon to atone for the injustice done to the moon. This injustice will be rectified in the days after the Final Redemption.
MOONS AND POLITICS
This newfound interest in ancient evil has a political bias. A group of left-wing witches and warlocks joined together last year on Halloween to use black-magic to place a hex on President Trump and his supporters. In October 2018, an occult bookstore in Brooklyn organized a gathering to hex newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and the National Rifle Association.
Not only does the blue moon rise over Halloween but it will be three days before the US Presidential election. Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi King David's Tomb on Mount Zion, emphasized that the proximity of the two events is significant. He noted that at a political rally in Greenville, North Carolina last Thursday, Trump declared that salvation from the Coronavirus, a disease he recently suffered from, is entirely in God's hands.
'Masks, no masks, everything you can do all you want, but you know, you still need help from THE BOSS!!" Trump said, pointing to the heavens. "That's what I did. We need help. It's alright to say."
TRUMP THEN PRAISED THE CHRISTIAN GOD BY NAME.
"And we will live by the words of our national motto, 'In God we trust," Trump said.
Rabbi Berger emphasized that it is forbidden for Jews to accept the Christian theological claims.
"The coronavirus is like the plagues of Egypt before the Exodus but it is global, intended to be a global awakening and reckoning," Rabbi Berger said. "The solution is not in science but in God. What we are about to see is the point and counterpoint of idolatry and paganism pitted against the universal belief in one true God, as prophesied by Zecharia," Rabbi Berger said.
And Hashem shall be king over all the earth; in that day there shall be one Hashem with one name. Zechariah 14:9
Rabbi Berger noted that this Halloween will be seen by idolators as a major time of rejoicing as the moon is a symbol of idolatry.
"Idolators will see the extra moon as a sign that their horrible beliefs are on the rise," Rabbi Berger said. "But Jewish commentaries explain that on the day that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, God placed both the sun and the moon that they worshipped in the heavens. If destruction had come upon them by day, they would have said that the moon would have helped them; if by night, they would have declared that the sun would have been their aid. So God brought down destruction on the cities destroyed early in the morning when both the sun and the moon were shining."
As dawn broke, the angels urged Lot on, saying, "Up, take your wife and your two remaining daughters, lest you be swept away because of the iniquity of the city." Genesis 19:15
"This year, we see the same message," Rabbi Berger said. "Even though they pray to the moon, even though they are celebrating their disgusting pagan holiday and enticing children with candy to worship the devil, it is inevitable that in the end, they will fall and people who praise God will be the only ones remaining."
HALLOWEEN'S PAGAN ROOTS
Halloween began as Samhain (pronounced Sow-in), one of the four main pagan holidays celebrated by the Celtics, who lived in areas of Ireland, northern England, and France before Romans conquered the region in the first century CE. Samhain marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year.
Similar to modern Halloween, Celtic pagans dressed up in costumes on Samhain and lit bonfires. Samhain was seen as a liminal time when the boundary between this world and the spirit world could more easily be crossed. As such, it was an auspicious time for summoning dark spirits to aid in necromancy, communicating with the dead to foretell the future, a practice explicitly prohibited in the Bible.
Let no one be found among you who consigns his son or daughter to the fire, or who is an augur, a soothsayer, a diviner, a sorcerer, one who casts spells, or one who consults ghosts or familiar spirits, or one who inquires of the dead. Deuteronomy 18:10-11
Samhain was celebrated from sundown October 31 to sundown November 1, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. People believed that on Samhain, spirits roamed the world, and gifts of food and wine would be left out to appease the spirits. When people left their houses at night, they wore masks so they would be mistaken for fellow ghosts.
In what is widely believed to be an effort to subsume the Celtic pagan holiday into the Christian religion, in 1000 C.E. the church declared November 2 All Souls' Day, a day honoring the dead. The night before All Souls' Day was re-adopted in the Celtic region, with the name changed from Samhain to All Hallows' Eve.
The holiday became popular in America in the second half of the nineteenth century with a wave of Irish immigration resulting from the potato famine. Today, it is the second most popular holiday for spending money in the US: Americans shell out $2.5 billion on costumes and an additional $3.5 billion on candy.
While many Americans insist that Halloween is a secular, family-oriented holiday, because of its clear origins in paganism and its connection with forbidden necromancy, most halachic (Torah law) authorities prohibit observant Jews from participating in Halloween.
PAGANISM: A GROWING PHENOMENON
Studies show that paganism in the U.S. has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years, accompanied by an increasing mainstream interest in occult-related activities like astrology, tarot, and spellcasting. An article in Quartz cited a study performed by Trinity College in Connecticut. From 1990 to 2008, the college ran three large, detailed religion surveys showing that Wicca, a contemporary Pagan new religious movement incorporating witchcraft, grew tremendously over this period. From an estimated 8,000 Wiccans in 1990, they found there were about 340,000 practitioners in 2008. In addition to the Wiccans, the study showed another 340,000 people self-identified as Pagans in 2008.
A later study by the Pew Research Center in 2014 found that 0.4 percent of Americans, or around 1-1.5 million people, self-identify as Wiccan or Pagan. To put this in perspective, a report in the Christian Post on this study compares this to other religions.
"There may now be more Americans who identify as practicing witches, 1.5 million than there are members of mainline Presbyterianism (PCUSA),1.4 million," the article wrote.
The Church of Satan, the first organized church in modern times to be devoted to the figure of Satan, perceives Halloween as an opportunity for the average American to indulge in secret Satanist fantasies. On its website, the church claims that Halloween is "the night when the mundane folk try to reach down inside and touch the 'darkness', which for Satanists is a daily mode of existence." They claim that by dressing in costume, the average American is taking "a brief dip into the pool of the 'shadow world.'"
Such dark days coming to the USA, be praying folk...
Will you be safe where you currently are if the election results cause chaos to erupt in the streets of our major cities? A lot of Americans are becoming deeply concerned about their personal safety as we approach November 3rd, because they can see what is coming. It is going to take a lot of extra time to count all of the votes because tens of millions of Americans are voting by mail this time around, and both sides have recruited armies of lawyers and are prepared to contest the results of the election to the bitter end. No matter who ends up being declared the winner when it is all over, there will be millions upon millions of very angry voters out there that are likely to feel as though the election was stolen from them, and that is a recipe for widespread societal unrest. I truly wish that we could go back and do things differently so that we would not be facing this sort of scenario, but it is too late for that now. More than 27 million Americans have already voted, and more are voting every day. Any attempts to fix the process will have to wait for future elections, and without a doubt it definitely needs to be fixed.
It is still difficult for me to believe that I am actually writing about the possibility of violence after a U.S. presidential election, but this is where we are at as a society.
In fact, there is violence in the streets right now.
This should break all of our hearts, because violence is not going to solve anything.
Unfortunately, an increasing number of people are not listening to voices of reason, and we are seeing anger and frustration rise to levels that we have never seen before.
At this point, most Americans are expecting the worst. To be more specific, one recent survey found that 55 percent of all registered voters expect a rise in violence following the election...
In the YouGov survey, about 55 percent of registered voters said they thought violence would increase in the U.S. following the Nov. 3 presidential election.
Just under 11 percent of respondents said they didn't expect a rise in violence to occur after the election, while 33 percent of voters were unsure.
Even more alarming, a different survey found that more than 40 percent of Republicans and more than 40 percent of Democrats believe that violence would be at least "a little" justified if their party ends up losing...
In September, 44 percent of Republicans and 41 percent of Democrats said there would be at least "a little" justification for violence if the other party's nominee wins the election.
I truly wish that those numbers were not real, but they are.
As Election Day draws near, many Americans have decided that "bugging out" is the best thing to do. For example, one 31-year-old New York resident is going to be staying with her parents on Election day because she believes "the city will be on fire" if Trump wins...
Flatiron resident Andrea, 31, also decided to pack up before Nov. 3. "I went to my parents in New Jersey for about two weeks when the BLM protests got bad and the looting started. So I definitely want to get out of here the week of the election," said the public-relations specialist, a Republican who asked that her last name not be used. "I'm thinking if Trump wins, it's going to be a disaster - the city will be on fire. People are going to go nuts."
And 42-year-old Ooana Trien is planning to spend Election Day out of the city because she is concerned that "protesters will try and burn down Trump Tower"...
The Trump supporter, who is mailing in her ballot, plans to open up her doors to others looking to escape. "I told my friends that whoever wanted to get out of the city was welcome here. One friend who lives in Washington Heights is going to vote in the morning [on Nov. 3] and come straight up to the beach," she said. "My mother thinks that whether [Trump] wins or loses, protesters will try and burn down Trump Tower."
Law enforcement authorities all over the nation are also deeply concerned about the potential for violence.
For example, in New Jersey officials have warned that we could potentially see "civil unrest resulting in riots, violent acts, and fatalities"...
"Election result delays and recounts could result in protests and attempts to occupy election offices," officials with the New Jersey Department of Homeland Security and Preparedness warned in a threat assessment issued in late September.
"Incidents of civil unrest resulting in riots, violent acts, and fatalities will converge with election uncertainty, producing confrontations between protesters and counter-demonstrators challenging election outcomes," it noted.
Yes, you read that correctly.
They actually used the word "fatalities".
In New York, residents were rattled by a leaked NYPD memo that warned of violent protests from October 25th through the early portion of 2021...
New Yorkers are on edge after a leaked NYPD memo, obtained by The Post, revealed this week that police are preparing for protests to begin as early as Oct. 25 and grow in intensity through next year. The department decreed officers should "be prepared for deployment," adding: "This November 3rd will be one of the most highly contested presidential elections in the modern era. There is also a strong likelihood that the winner of the presidential election may not be decided for several weeks."
In Arizona, the information security officer for Maricopa County is encouraging people to have law enforcement authorities on speed dial just in case something happens...
"Make sure that you're reaching out to your law enforcement and say, on and around Election Day, what is our plan?" he said. "Do you have an emergency contact list? Do you have your police department, your sheriff, whoever, on speed dial ready to get them to respond to any kind of threat?"
Election Day is now just a little over two weeks away, and emotions are running really high.
Most Democrats fully expect Joe Biden to win, and many of them are still anticipating a landslide.
Of course most Republicans believe that the national polls are completely wrong again and that President Trump will ultimately emerge victorious.
In the end, one side will be proven wrong and the disappointment that they will feel will be very, very bitter.
We all remember the rioting that we witnessed earlier this year, and many believe that what is ahead could be far, far worse.
In 2020, gun sales have soared to levels that we have never seen before, and many Americans find themselves purchasing guns for the very first time. One of those first time buyers is a 44-year-old single mother named Andreyah Garland...
Andreyah Garland, a 44-year-old single mother of three daughters, bought a shotgun in May for protection in the quaint middle-class town of Fishkill, New York. She joined a new and fast-growing local gun club to learn how to shoot.
According to Reuters, a "potentially contested election that many fear could spark violence" played a role in her decision to purchase a firearm...
Like legions of other first-time buyers who are contributing to record sales for the U.S. gun industry this year, Garland's decision to take up arms is driven in part by disturbing news about the coronavirus pandemic, social unrest over police killings of Black people and a potentially contested election that many fear could spark violence.
"With everything going on around us," she said, "you see a need."
If you could go back 50 years ago and tell Americans what conditions would be like in 2020, most of them would not believe you.
Our society is literally melting down right in front of our eyes, and I don't think that anyone is going to be able to stop it from happening.
Of course this election will come and go, but the social instability that we are witnessing will remain, and at this point everyone should be able to see that America is heading into a very dark future.
We don't hear as much from the PLO ("PNA") these days. Not after the transformative work of Benjamin Netanyahu and Donald Trump. They have sidelined the iconic terror group. The move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the recognition of the Golan Heights as Israeli, the cutting off of payments to PLO terrorists...all these things and much more have marginalized a group of killers that had been legitimized (even lionized) by Western diplomats. Arafat slept in the Lincoln Bedroom!
Anyone that reads this space regularly knows, though, that I feel the Palestinian issue will be a major trigger of end-times events. They are not just going to go away. What is happening is that Trump and Bibi are keeping them at bay.
But Western leaders are not leaders-for-life, as they are in the East, in the Middle East. After a few years, they will reappear, the terror chiefs, and we will be on to the next "land for peace" deal.
While Israel and America enjoy historically great leaders, Europe is in a death spiral, pandering to the Muslim invaders/immigrants. They continue to criticize Israel. They continue to pass resolutions condemning Israeli sovereignty.
And their friends in the Middle East keep on keeping on.
Just this month, there has been a beehive of activity in Gaza and the PA Territories, attacking Israel physically and ideologically.
"On October 8, 2020, a delegation of senior Hamas figures, including Musa Abu Marzouq, a member of the Hamas political bureau, and Husam Badran, arrived in Moscow for a visit lasting several days. The delegation met with a number of senior Russian officials, among the Mikhail Bogdanov, deputy foreign minister and presidential envoy to the Middle East. The Russians expressed support for the internal Palestinian reconciliation, saying that a successful reconciliation would help advance a resolution of the conflict. The Russians also expressed willingness to host a meeting of all the Palestinian organizations. Reportedly, the meeting with the Hamas delegation was the first step towards a joint meeting of Hamas and Fatah with senior Russian government officials (al-Sharq al-Awsat, Hamas website, October 9, 2020)."
Notice this meeting took place in Moscow! The Russians (and Turkey) are working mischief when it comes to Israel. Putin will always reach out to terrorists. He himself is a totalitarian. Israel watches warily.
And within Israel, the bloodthirsty Palestinian Islamic Jihad is celebrating.
"The PIJ marked its 33rd anniversary. The Hamas movement congratulated the PIJ and its leader, Ziyad al-Nakhalah, saying the organization played an important role in the liberation of Palestine. Hamas added that the military wings of both organizations, along with all the other organizations, were united in their struggle against Israel (Hamas website, October 5, 2020).
Abu Muhammad, a member of the military council of the Jerusalem Brigades, the PIJ's military wing, claimed the military wing could inflict damage on Israel and would continue to develop its military capabilities (Filastin al-Yawm, October 6, 2020. Abu Hamza, spokesman for the PIJ's military wing, wrote a threatening open letter to Israel in which he said that in the next battle Israel's vital, sensitive sites would be targeted (Jerusalem Brigades website, October 6, 2020).
Ziyad al-Nakhalah, PIJ leader, gave an online speech at the conference held to mark the organization's anniversary.
"Among his themes were the following (al-Mayadeen, October 6, 2020):
"A threat to Israel: He noted the commitment of his organization to jihad and 'resistance'] i.e., terrorism] saying that thanks to the 'resistance' the PIJ could attack Israel's capital [i.e., Tel Aviv] and all its 'settlements' [i.e., cities, towns and communities]. He also said that the PIJ had proved it could attain new achievements and that Israel's targeted killings did not scare it.
The internal Palestinian reconciliation: The PIJ had participated in the meeting of the organizations' leaders because it understood the will of the Palestinian people, but that did not mean they had abandoned their principles. He said the PIJ wanted to be part of the PLO but on the condition that the PLO would not recognize the State of Israel and would renege on all previous agreements signed with it. He also said they would participate in PLO elections if they were held separately from the Palestinian Legislative Council elections. He said that at the present time the 'resistance' had to be the top priority (al-Mayadeen, October 6, 2020)."
Palestine has been liberated? Sensitive sites will be targeted? No Israel recognition?
What madness lies at the heart of the Palestinian leadership? No one has liberated Palestine except Israel! And if the Jewish sites "sensitive sites" were targeted? That enemy would cease to exist. Finally, we recognize Israel. God recognizes His people. They are engraved on the palms of His hands.
My irritation with the PLO is with me too much. In fact, I should pray more (regularly) for these deluded people, both for their futile attempts to erase Israel and for their spiritual health. Pray that these people would recognize the Prince of Peace, before it is too late for them.
One, on Oct. 6, 2020, Pres. Trump tweeted that he has authorized the total declassification (no redactions) of any and all documents related to the Russian Collusion investigation and the Clinton e-mail scandal.
It is now clear from handwritten notes of some Obama Administration officials that they knew that the DNC and Hillary Clinton financed this hoax.
It is my opinion that the U.S. government should sue Hillary and the DNC to recover the cost of their deliberate scam.
Two, concerning lawlessness, on Oct. 9, 2020, U.S. Sec. of State Pompeo said his department has Hillary Clinton's deleted e-mails, and he will release them perhaps before the election.
Clinton said the e-mails had been deleted.
Time will tell, but it has been reported that Atty. Gen. Barr has enough evidence to charge former Pres. Obama, former Vice Pres. Biden and several other members of the Obama Administration with espionage and treason against the U.S.
If Trump wins, this may happen, but if Biden wins, it will be covered up, and they will get away with it.
Three, on Oct. 9, 2020, the Wall Street Journal reported that a federal court has ordered one of Hunter Biden's former business partners, Devon Archer, to stand trial on securities fraud and conspiracies charges.
Hunter Biden is not accused of being involved, but he and Archer served together on the board of a corrupt gas company in Ukraine, and Hunter received large sums of money at a time when Biden's father, now Democrat Pres. Candidate Joe Biden, was in charge of America's dealings with Ukraine.
Four, on Oct. 11, 2020, it was reported that a CIA Whistleblower has come forward with documents, audio, e-mails and pictures that prove that Obama and Biden sent $152 billion in cash to Iran to cover up the Benghazi tragedy and the deaths of Seal Team 6.
On Oct. 12, 2020, it was reported that Pres. Trump tweeted about this, and the evidence has been turned over to someone in the U.S. Congress for evaluation.
On Oct. 13, 2020, Pres. Trump retweeted about this, and another report said the information will come out.
If the CIA Whistleblower evidence really exists and it is true, there is proof that Obama, Biden, and Clinton have been lying to the American people about these things and they bribed a terrorist nation to help cover it up.
Five, when asked about the signs of His Second Coming, Jesus said, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains" (Matt. 24:15-16).
In the Book of Revelation, John wrote about the sun-clothed woman (Israel), and he said, "And the woman fled into the wilderness [for years many prophecy teachers have suggested that the Jews will flee to a place in Jordan called Petra], where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days" (Rev. 12:6).
John added, "And to the woman [Israel] were given two wings of a great eagle [it may be a stretch, but, for years, some prophecy teachers have suggested that the U.S. may fly the Jews to Petra], that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent" (Rev. 14:6).
On Oct. 8, 2020, Israel and Jordan agreed to allow the U.S. and a few other nations to fly over Petra.
Six, concerning famine, on Oct. 8, 2020, it was reported that Feeding America, a group of more than 200 Food Banks, has estimated that their Food Banks will need three times as much food in the U.S. next year as they received this year.
The destruction of crops, factory slowdowns for lack of workers, and natural disasters are impacting America's food supply.
Seven, in August 2020, Pastor John MacArthur reportedly said, "From a Biblical standpoint, Christians cannot vote Democratic."
He added, "There's no way that a Christian can affirm the slaughter of babies, homosexual activity, homosexual marriage, or any kind of gross immorality."
My understanding of Bible prophecy and current events means that Christians that vote Democratic will also be voting for a satanic world government, an anti-Christ world religion, wars and rumors of wars, increased drug abuse, increased violence, persecution of Tribulation-Period believers, the division and attempted destruction of Israel, population control, tracking all buying and selling, and the wrath of God to fall on the earth unlike anything that has ever happened before.
It is not my intent to be political, and God is not a politician, but these are moral issues that God spoke about in the Bible.
This calls for discernment because there are some Republicans that Christians should not vote for either.
Eight, concerning persecution and freedom of religion, several religious groups in New York have filed federal suits for restricting their attendance at religious gatherings.
Gov. Cuomo said he doesn't care about people's religion; everyone has to follow the rules of the state.
The rules of the state must comply with the rules of the U.S. Constitution, and if one person can set aside the freedom of religion clause in that document, religious citizens are in for persecution.
U.S. Supreme Court judges are needed that will require government officials to adhere to the Constitution.
Nine, concerning the recent peace treaty between Israel and the UAE, the UAE has officially requested permission to purchase F-35 Fighter Jets from the U.S.
Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Israel opposes the deal, but they will look for ways to move the deal forward that will guarantee Israel's peace and security (peace and safety).
To conclude, America has never seen a time like this.
God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin born, sinless Son of God, who died for the sins of the world, was buried and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is continuing to insult and threaten Arabs, specifically those living in the Gulf.
Many Arabs are concerned about Erdogan's threats against their countries and his ongoing meddling in their internal affairs. Some Arabs are saying that the time has come to stand up to Erdogan and end his "malicious" schemes against Arab countries.
In the past few days, many Arabs took to social media and other platforms to condemn Erdogan's latest offensive remarks and veiled threats against their countries.
They were responding to statements by Erdogan, who on October 1 told Turkish lawmakers, "Some countries in our region did not exist yesterday, and they may not exist in the future, but God willing, we will continue to raise our flag in this region forever." He was apparently referring to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and other Gulf countries.
The Turkish president was speaking at the opening of the 27th legislative session of his country's parliament. Commenting on the death of the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, Erdogan said, "He [The Emir of Kuwait] was "a different, rational and wise leader, unlike the rulers of some countries in the region, whose rulings do not correspond to reason, logic and fairness."
Erdogan's statements sparked a wave of protests and condemnations in the Gulf states, which considered his remarks as "hostile to Arabs" and a "declaration of war on Arabs."
Some Arabs wondered whether Erdogan was preparing to topple Arab regimes.
Noting that Erdogan posted a video clip of his statements on his Arabic Twitter account in an explicit attempt to send a warning to Arabs, Saudi political analyst Abdel Hameed Yahya wrote: "He [Erdogan] posted it on his Arabic account with an Arabic translation. This is a declaration of war, to say the least."
Yayha and several Arab political analysts and commentators said that Erdogan "has a project of hegemony and influence that resembles Iran's project in its end, although they differ in the tools and method of implementation."
"While Iran uses sectarianism through its militias and proxies, Turkey has used other tools, the most important of which is political Islam, represented by the Muslim Brotherhood organization," according to the London-based pan-Arab newspaper Al-Arab.
"For years, Turkey continued to implement its agenda in secret, but its true face has begun to appear in public. In light of the internal economic crisis, and Turkey's external setbacks, there was no room left for Erdogan but to flee forward."
Saudi political activist Munther Al Sheikh Mubarak remarked:
"Perhaps October will be a turning point in dealing with Erdogan. His clear threats require the Gulf states to take clear measures against Turkey by ending every relationship with it. Shut up, Erdogan!"
Adheya Ahmed Al-Sayed, Chairwoman of the Bahrain Journalists Association, commented that Erdogan's threats against the Gulf states should be seen as a "message to all those who are deceived by Erdogan. His threat against our country is clear and not hidden."
Two popular hashtags trending on Twitter reflect the growing concern among Arabs toward Erdogan's intentions and threats: "Arabs are a red line that should not be crossed" and "Erdogan threatens Arabs."
Several Gulf social media users accused Erdogan of seeking to increase his popularity "by insulting the Gulf countries and showing contempt for Arabs."
Egyptian political thinker Magdi Khalil, president of the Middle East Freedom Forum, wrote that Erdogan "is following in Iran's footsteps by recruiting extremists in favor of his dangerous expansion project." Erdogan, he added, "is a dangerous man for the world."
Abdullah Al-Otaibi, a Saudi writer and political analyst, wrote that Erdogan has been sending "mercenaries" to fight in Syria, Iraq and Libya to prove that he is the next Ottoman Caliph. "In Syria, Turkey presented itself as a supporter and savior for the Syrian people from its army and its political leadership," Al-Otaibi said.
"Then it became clear that the Turkish goal was to control northern Syria and turn the Syrian youth into an army of mercenary militias that Turkey would use to achieve its expansionist ambitions in the Arab countries. Turkey interfered with its armed forces in northern Iraq under the pretext of pursuing the Kurdistan Workers' Party members. Iraqi and Libyan sovereignty were violated by Turkey in full view of the world. Iran and Turkey spread chaos in the countries in which these two countries interfered, and they support terrorism, deploy militias and transport mercenaries."
Egyptian writer Emil Amin described Erdogan as a "delusional man" and the "bad man of the region." Erdogan, Amin wrote, was "busy to the maximum extent with foreign invasions and dreams of restoring the Ottoman Empire."
Emirati writer Abdel Rahman Al-Naqbi wrote about Erdogan's "filthy trick" to distract attention from his problems at home. "Hardly a week goes by without Erdogan coming out with fiery statements that contain a direct or implicit threat to the Gulf states and Egypt," Al-Naqbi said.
"These continuous statements indicate the extent of the turmoil and the challenges facing him inside Turkey, especially in the economic field. This old political trick of distracting the Turkish people from the failure of the ruling regime to solve its internal problems is still used in a ridiculous way. Such nonsense is not appropriate for an ordinary politician, let alone a president of an Islamic state who insults and threatens Muslim countries."
Saudi political analyst Abdullah Farraj Al-Sharif said that Turkey and Iran have become the two most hostile countries to Saudi Arabia. "Confronting them is obligatory," he said. "These two countries are hostile to Saudi Arabia for no understandable reasons."
Another Saudi writer, Mohammed Al-Saaed, compared Erdogan to former Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi. "Erdogan thinks that he is the ruler of the region," Al-Saaed said, dubbing the Turkish president delusional and ignorant.
"The notorious messages that he sends to the countries and peoples of the region confirm beyond any reasonable doubt that we are facing a new Gaddafi. What Erdogan is doing today is breaking the foundations of the modern Turkish state, stone by stone, and destroying its values."
Abdel Aziz Razan, a Saudi adviser at the Center for Arab-Russia Studies, called on the international media to expose Erdogan's "crimes" against the Arabs.
"His crimes against the Arab peoples must be exposed, such as his massacres against the Syrian people, against the Kurds in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, and in Libya through the violation of Libyan sovereignty and the sending of Syrian mercenaries to that country."
Such powerful responses made by Saudis and other Arabs to Erdogan's contemptuous statements show that the Arabs now understand it is Erdogan and his friends in Iran whom they should fear. In the eyes of these Arabs, Erdogan and his Iranian connections represent the real threat to their security and stability.
In light of such reactions, perhaps more Arab countries will follow the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in signing diplomatic agreements with Israel. The State of Israel, as it turns out, is a strategic and strong ally that can help Arab countries stop Turkey and Iran from spreading their contagion of terror in the Middle East.

The climate alarmists of our day would have us believe that a grave environmental crisis exists; one that requires immediate and drastic action in order to save the planet. The leaders of the United Nations tell us that the solution requires all nations to submit to a central government, a New World Order.
The UN's strategy for resolving the climate emergency consists of seventeen goals that fall under their Agenda 2030. These objectives, however, go far beyond protecting the environment. They call for a Marxist type of government that distributes wealth evenly among all nations and all people.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) refers to this redistribution of wealth as the "Great Reset." The quote below comes from the Fox Business website regarding the WEF's meeting in June 2020:
We're still in the earliest phase of the Great Reset. The full plan won't be rolled out until January 2021, when the World Economic Forum will host its annual meeting in Davos. But the framework of the plan is clear: By combining many of the money-printing strategies endorsed by Modern Monetary Theory economists with global Green New Deal-like policies and corporate cronyism, the elites at the World Economic Forum can effectively control economic activity on a scale that has never been achieved.
The words "effectively control economic activity" sound remarkably similar to the words of Revelation 13, which describe how the beast, the antichrist, will control all the buying and selling worldwide.
Agenda 2030 and its United States' equivalent, the Green New Deal, are the engines behind the coming economic control that the elite globalists plan to impose on the world. The Marxist nature of these programs is slavery by any other name.
THE CHILLING DETAILS OF THE GREEN NEW DEAL
According to Wikipedia, "The Green New Deal (GND) is a proposed package of United States legislation that aims to address climate change and economic inequality."
A Washington Post article on February 11, 2019, reports that the GND resolution calls for a "10-year national mobilization" with the following as its key goals that focus as much on wealth redistribution as on the environment:
Guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States.
Providing all people of the United States with - high-quality health care; affordable, safe, and adequate housing; economic security; and access to clean water, clean air, healthy and affordable food, and nature.
Meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.
Repairing and upgrading the infrastructure in the United States, including by eliminating pollution and greenhouse gas emissions as much as technologically feasible.
Upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to achieve maximal energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability, comfort, and durability, including through electrification.
The GND legislation leaves no aspect of human life outside the realm of government control. Its description on the CNN website provides a frightening and chilling depiction of just how the elite would control all areas of our lives under the GND.
With implementation of the GND, a totalitarian government would guarantee the well-being of everyone in the United States. It would regulate all aspects of one's employment, housing, healthcare, availability of food, and of course clean up the environment (a secondary objective of the plan). It would ensure equal outcomes for all with the elite choosing the nature of such "outcomes." Does this not sound a little bit like being in prison?
The response of the world to COVID-19 has given the globalists confidence that they can control people through fear. Might there be climate lockdowns in the world's future under the guise of saving the planet from an impending environmental catastrophe? Some are already talking about just a scenario.
Mariana Mazzucato, a University College London economics professor who is a member of the U.N. Committee on Development Policy recently wrote the following, "Under a 'climate lockdown,' governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling."
Despite what he said in the debate, Joe Biden and the Democratic Party fully support the GND and will work for its full implementation should they prevail in the election this November.
THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE GREEN NEW DEAL
Tom Hughes, in a recent prophecy update, played a video from the World Economic Forum (WEF). It portrays the future as a wonderful utopia free of pandemics and all threats to our environment. The leaders of WEF fail to point out, however, the pain and suffering that will come from the move away from fossil fuels they envision under the UN's Agenda 2030 and its US counterpart, the GND.
The planting, maintaining, and harvesting of crops requires a tremendous amount of fossil fuels. Beyond that, the food would never make it from the farms to our grocery stores without diesel fuel powering millions of trucks as well as a numerous trains. And without fuel, it would be a very long walk for most of us to get our food home from the store. Alternatives do not exist for all the fuel needed to support all the activities needed to meet the demands of even a fraction of population in the US or in the world.
Below is what I wrote in my chapter on the climate alarmists for Lawless-The End Times War Against the Spirit of Antichrist (due for release this month, October 2020) concerning the consequences of the GND should it become law:
God designed the world to sustain the large population we have today. This may sound highly controversial, but I believe the Lord provided fossil fuels in the earth for the benefit of mankind. Why else would He have designed the earth with such vast resources of oil, coal, and natural gas and given humanity the knowledge to use it? These resources not only make it possible for food to reach our tables, but for millions of people to survive the harsh winters of the north.
These enormous reserves did not come into being apart from God's sovereign purposes nor did they originate from decaying dinosaurs. It would have required an astronomically high number of decomposing prehistoric animals to create the gigantic reservoirs of natural gas and oil that exist beneath the earth's surface.
Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels says eliminating all fossil fuels would reduce the average earth temperature by .14 degrees Celsius. "That's a very small change for putting humanity back in the Stone Age."
The implementation of the Green New Deal would lead to record high fuel costs and with that soaring and out of control food prices. Those with fixed incomes would have no opportunity to keep up with the skyrocketing inflation. The economic fallout would devastate life in the United States and lead to starvation on a massive scale. As Dr. Michaels said, it just might push us back in "the stone age."
But do not panic; the Lord told us thousands of years ago that this would happen.
BIBLICAL PROPHECY PROVIDES A BIBLICAL CONTEXT FOR THE FUTURE NEW WORLD ORDER
Amir Tsarfati explains how the current climate-change hysteria furthers Satan's agenda for a world government:
The Bible describes the man of sin, the Antichrist, as a man who will have the reins for a world government handed over to him. Involved with this will also be a world religion that will help subject all things under his evil control. The Bible indicates that this man is going to rise from what we now know as Europe (Daniel 7). This climate change hysteria is doing nothing but screaming for the world to let the globalist regime have more control. Eventually, things are going to get to the point where the economic, political, and even religious platforms of the world are going to be right where Satan wants them in order for this man to take control.
The Great Reset championed by the World Economic Forum is nothing new. Both Daniel and the Apostle John prophesied about just such a world government would emerge during the Tribulation (Daniel 7; Revelation 13). The globalists who push for a New World Order act as Satan's minions promoting his agenda to put his man, the Antichrist, in charge of all the nations just as the Bible says will happen in the last days.
Yes, it's exceedingly disheartening to watch the push for a totalitarian world government gain popularity under the deceptive guise of climate alarm. We must keep in mind, however, that not only does the Bible tell us this will happen someday, it provides details of the destruction of Satan's kingdom at the Second Coming of Jesus (Rev. 19:11-20:10).
The Lord Jesus will totally destroy both the antichrist and his kingdom at His Second Coming.
What we see in our world is precisely what the Bible said would happen in the last days; a New World Order of some sort will take finally shape before or during the initial stages of the seven-year tribulation. We already see the planning for this New World Order in the United States' GND, in Agenda 2030 of the United Nations, and in The Great Reset of the WEF. All these programs have the same goal of unifying the world under the control of the elite globalists.
The Great Reset will not be the utopia the WEF advertises it to be; it will enslave all who are alive at the time.
The good news is that we will already be with Jesus in the place He has prepared for us before the antichrist rises to worldwide power (John 14:2-3; 2 Thess. 2:1-8). We will not see the sudden destruction that will kick off the day of the Lord; that is the Lord's promise to us.
For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10)
Freddie Sayers talks to eminent epidemiologists Dr Sunetra Gupta, Dr Jay Bhattacharya and Dr. Martin Kulldorff, who met in Massachusetts to sign a declaration calling for a different global response to the pandemic.

Sky News host Alan Jones says he has warned time and time again the political leaders who are the architects of this coronavirus response will not be able to escape the criticism that is now finding its way into the public place.
It comes as an economist in the Victorian Department of Finance and Treasury, Sanjeev Sabhlok, on Wednesday penned an article in the Australian Financial Review announcing his resignation from his position.
Mr Sabhlok wrote he resigned "so that I would be able to speak out against the state's management of the COVID-19 infection".
"I made a number of criticisms of the state government on social media. The head of human relations at Treasury asked me to remove them.
"I resigned on the same day, the only honourable course for a free citizen of Australia," Mr Sabhlok wrote.
Mr Sabhlok continued to note a number of his other criticisms over the response to the virus.
"One question remains, how many others have been silenced across all arms of government, including in Canberra," Mr Jones said.
Mr Jones also reiterated his call for a national advertising campaign to "tell the public the truth about the fact this virus is not a pandemic".
I was listening to radio 4 the other night on the 11 Oct 2020 and heard for the first time about the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
What I heard was the bombing of each other through a supposed cease fire where each county had fired bombs in to civilian area.
I was grateful to find Amir Tsarfati of Behold Israel beholdisrael.org program on Israel this morning where he shares in-depth about this conflict where he exposed the countries that have interest in this conflict.
But more importantly they are innocent civilians who are caught up in this conflict and they need to know Jesus. Pray that the Iranians can be dealt with through sanctions and that this stops Turkey from sniffing about for gas and oil.
