Dirt Poor - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2021/12/05/dirt-poor-by-daymond-duck/
My generation is familiar with the expression, “I grew up dirt poor.” I remember when we could see hogs and dogs under the house through cracks in the floor, when we wore hand-me-down clothes or my mother made them, when we had no heat in the bedrooms, when we got electricity for the first time, when we got our first telephone, when we didn’t have running water, when we had to use an outdoor toilet, when we got our first TV set, our first vehicle, our first tractor, etc.
I remember when we didn’t have locks on the doors of the house we lived in, but that didn’t matter because we didn’t have anything worth stealing.
I remember when we raised a garden, canned our food, killed hogs, hunted rabbits and squirrels, and fished for food to eat.
I remember working in the field all week and crying if we didn’t get 25 cents to spend at the movies and stores when we went to town on Saturday afternoon (if we got to go).
I remember a few things about WWII, a cousin that died in the war, my dad being exempted to work on the farm, and rationed food.
America ended the war as a Christian nation, we started the school day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, a preacher came to our school once a week to speak during chapel, each day a teacher would read the Bible to us during Study Hall, America prospered and God turned America into the envy of the world.
I don’t regret growing up “dirt poor” in a Christian nation.
With God’s help, my hard work and Christian values led to a good education, good jobs, a good place to live, and a blessed life.
At my age now, I couldn’t survive being “dirt poor” again, but I am not concerned about it (I expect to be Raptured).
Having said this, I am concerned that America has become unthankful; America has abandoned most of its Christian values; America is in the process of submitting to a godless New World Order; America has replaced Bible teaching at school with critical race theory, woke insanity, LGBTQ rights, etc.; and the result of America’s “Build Back Better” without God insanity is going to make living conditions worse than what I grew up under.
A New World Order without God is a major sign that God’s judgment, called the tribulation by Jesus (Matt. 24:21, 21), is on the way.
All but a handful of the very wealthy will be “dirt poor.”
There will be an economic collapse, hyperinflation, wars and natural disasters like birth pains, and people will try to live without electricity, without running water, without indoor toilets (without electricity, many wells and pumps won’t work), without food on the store shelves (without gardens, rabbits, and hogs), without vehicles (without electricity, gasoline pumps won’t work), etc.
If this sounds far-fetched to you, consider this before I move on:
The existence of the WEF video saying we will own nothing and Biden’s nomination of a woman that has called for the government to take control of everyone’s bank accounts are facts, not far-fetched speculation.
Here are more prophecy-related events from last week’s news.
One, concerning world government: on Nov. 22, 2021, it was reported that Jeff Bezos (head of Amazon) is giving $100 million to the Barack and Michelle Obama Foundation to train and equip emerging domestic and global leaders to change their communities and the world.
Two, on November 26, 2021, Canada Free Press (CFP) carried an article by Ray DiLorenzo titled “Archbishop Vigano Calls for Action.”
DiLorenzo called the coming godless world government “an evil conspiracy without equal in human history.”
He added that “It will affect almost every living person on this planet with the potential to kill billions.”
Here is part of what DiLorenzo reported from Vigano’s Call for Action on Nov. 17, 2021 (quotes are Vigano’s words; non-quotes are the way this writer understands Vigano’s words):
Here is a link to the article. https://canadafreepress.com/article/archbishop-vigano-calls-for-action
(Note One: According to the Bible, there will be opposition to the coming world government (Dan. 7:8, 24; Rev. 6:1-2), but the Antichrist will be empowered by Satan, and God will let him prevail for 7 years (Dan. 9:24-27; Rev. 13:1-8)).
(Note Two: On Jan. 1, 2016, the Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development went into effect, so this phase in the surge toward world government will soon be 6 years old. Globalists have made great progress during these 6 years. We can expect them to surge forward faster and faster as they seek to meet their goal of a godless world government by 2030 or sooner.)
Three, concerning a world government without borders, on Nov. 27, 2021, it was reported that the UN gives free debit cards worth about $800 per month to families that want to cross the U.S. border with Mexico.
Because U.S. taxpayers pay about 22% of the UN budget, U.S. taxpayers are making monthly payments to illegal immigrants that cross into the U.S.
Four, concerning the globalist desire to reduce the population of the earth: on Nov. 19, 2021, it was reported that Steve Jalsevac, president and co-founder of LifeSiteNews, was asked in an interview if he thinks Covid injections are a weapon in the population control agenda, and he replied, “Absolutely. Without any doubt at all. Their primary objective is to stop what they claim to be climate change, and they believe the cause of ‘climate change’ is human beings, and human beings are a vermin on the earth.”
Some may not agree that Covid vaccinations are part of the population control agenda, but it is a fact that Pres. Biden made John Kerry America’s first ever Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, and he is pushing mandated vaccinations.
It may also explain why many globalists are opposed to known Covid cures (Ivermectin, etc.) and accurate reports on vaccination-caused deaths and adverse events.
(More: On Nov. 20, 2021, the official EU database (EudraVigilance) reported 31,014 deaths and 2,890,600 injuries (1,355,192 serious) from the 4 main Covid-19 Vaccinations. These numbers are thought to be low because they are reported deaths and injuries, and it is believed that many deaths and injuries don’t get reported.)
Five, on Nov. 26, 2021, it was reported that a 17-year employee of United Memorial Medical Center in New York said she was seeing a flood of Covid-19 adverse events in the ER of the hospital where she worked, but her bosses told her not to report them to the government Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.
(More: Late in the day, on Nov. 30, 2021, it was reported that a federal judge in Louisiana issued a nationwide injunction blocking the Biden administration’s mandated Covid-19 vaccinations for healthcare workers all over the U.S.)
Six, concerning peace in the Middle East: on Nov. 24, 2021, Israel and Morocco signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) pledging increased cooperation on intelligence issues, military training, industrial growth, and arms trade.
Seven, concerning pandemics: globalists are using a supposedly new version of Covid called Omicron (some groups use Greek names for the Covid variants; Alpha, Beta, Delta, Epsilon, Gamma, Iota, Kappa, Omicron, etc.) to scare the unvaccinated into getting vaccinated, and to scare the vaccinated into getting boosters, etc.
According to their latest fearmongering, Omicron has 32 mutations, it is the deadliest Covid virus ever, and multitudes may die this winter.
Other interesting reports claim that very few people have got Omicron, no cases have been reported in the U.S., and Omicron has only shown up in people that have been fully vaccinated.
Eight, concerning hyper-inflation and an economic collapse, on Nov. 25, 2021, Michael Snyder (the Economic Collapse Blog) reported that:
(Note: Readers that have recently received a raise should know that if their salary is not rising as fast as inflation, in terms of real dollars, their salary has gone down, not up, because it will buy less.)
Nine, concerning fraud in the 2020 Presidential election: on Nov. 18, 2021, The Gateway Pundit posted 3 whistleblower videos purporting to show election officials destroying election data and equipment in Delaware.
These videos can be seen at the following link:
Ten, concerning the Mark of the Beast in the right hand or forehead (Rev. 13:16): on Nov. 30, 2021, the Gateway Pundit reported that “Swedes are getting Covid vaccine passports implanted in their hands or elsewhere under the skin.”
This is voluntary (not mandatory), but it could become mandatory in the future.
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). 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.
Is third sabotage the charm at Iran's Natanz nuclear facility? – Yonah Jeremy Bob - https://www.jpost.com/middle-east/sabotage-at-irans-natanz-nuclear-facility-30-analysis-687849
Was Iran's Natanz nuclear facility just attacked for the third time in two years?
Did the Mossad or someone just try to sabotage Iran’s nuclear facilities at Natanz for the third time since July 2020?
Reports are still hazy, but as of Saturday night, the narratives varied from: Iran undertook a preplanned air defense drill unrelated to sabotage, but shot down an attack drone thwarting a sabotage attempt. Electricity and the Internet were down for some unspecified part of Natanz, which could mean a sabotage attempt succeeded, but the Islamic Republic is still trying to cover it up.
Natanz was hit by physical explosive sabotage in July 2020 and again in April.
The July 2020 attack was more successful, and destroyed the vast majority of an above-ground nuclear site.
An April attack destroyed centrifuges and a variety of utilities of a newer underground site, but only fully delayed Iran’s advanced centrifuge progress for about four months, while causing some longer-term slowdowns.
Curiously, the April attack took place near the start of Vienna nuclear negotiations.
If this event was an attack, it would have taken place at the end of the first week of renewed nuclear negotiations.
Both in July 2020 and in April, Iran initially tried to deny there was an attack or deny its success until The Jerusalem Post reported that the attacks were successful and had caused severe damage.
Following the Post’s and other media reports, Tehran was forced to acknowledge that its nuclear sites had been hit, and badly.
It later accused the Mossad of both hits, so Tehran’s initial denials should be taken with a grain of salt.
Another nuclear site, Karaj, was hit this past June, days after Ebrahim Raisi was elected Iran’s new president.
This could be a second message to Raisi that his attempt to push the envelope with increasing nuclear violations as well as taking maximalist positions in Vienna could leave him vulnerable, even if much of the West is intimidated by him.
Or maybe this time Iran’s air defenses improved and thwarted an attack.
Then again, for the first time in four such similar events, maybe it was just a pre-planned air-defense drill.
Satellite footage made it impossible for Tehran to cover up the damage in both Natanz attacks, but strangely, satellite footage was slower in coming with Karaj, when Raisi had taken power and the Biden administration was seeking a return to talks.
It will be interesting to see what satellite footage shows this time.
9 Shocking Signs Of The Staggering Decline Of The Traditional American Family - by Michael Snyder - http://endoftheamericandream.com/9-shocking-signs-of-the-staggering-decline-of-the-traditional-american-family/
How can anyone possibly be optimistic about the future of our society when our families just continue to get weaker and weaker? Traditional family units are at the foundation of any successful society, and that was certainly true for the United States during our formative years. But now a decline that has stretched on for decades has left the traditional American family in worse shape than ever before. Our entertainment is anti-family, our culture is anti-family and many of our politicians are openly anti-family. There is so much that is working against us, but if we don’t get our families fixed there is no way that we are ever going to have any hope of turning the entire nation around.
If you think that I am exaggerating, just keep reading. The following are 9 shocking signs of the staggering decline of the traditional American family…
#1 The percentage of homes in the United States containing a married couple with children is at an all-time record low…
The number of U.S. homes with a married couple and kids fell to a record low, according to new government data, as the pandemic further delayed weddings and more adults don’t plan to have kids at all. The share of the U.S.’s 130 million households headed by married parents with children under age 18 fell to 17.8% in 2021 from 18.6% last year, according to the Census Bureau. That’s down from more than 40% in 1970.
#2 Right now, just 23.1 million American homes contain a married couple with children. The last time that number was that low was in 1959.
But in 1959 our total population was just 177 million.
Today, it is 329 million.
#3 Nearly a third of all U.S. families with children are single parent families.
Sadly, that percentage “has tripled since 1965”…
In observance of National Single Parent Day on March 21, it is worth noting that America has one of the highest levels of single-parent families with children in the world. About 30 percent of America’s families with children under 18 years old, amounting to 10 million households, are single-parent families.
The share of American families with children living with a single parent has tripled since 1965. The large majority of those single-parent families, approximately 75 percent, are headed by a mother only.
#4 More Americans are living alone than ever before.
Right now 37 million U.S. adults are living alone.
That number has risen by more than 10 percent over the last decade, and it keeps increasing with each passing year.
#5 The birth rate in the United States is at the lowest level ever recorded.
It fell another four percent last year, and every single demographic group is seeing declines…
In May, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report that revealed the U.S. birth rate fell 4% last year, the largest single-year decrease in nearly 50 years.
The rate dropped for mothers of every major race and ethnicity, and in nearly every age group, falling to the lowest point since federal health officials started tracking it more than a century ago, according to the CDC’s report.
#6 According to one recent survey, an all-time record high 44 percent of childless adults in the United States under the age of 50 say that it is “likely” that they will never have any children at all…
Child-free U.S. adults are increasingly likely to say parenthood isn’t in the cards for them, a new report says.
Asked the question, “Thinking about the future, how likely is it that you will have children someday?,” 44% of adults younger than 50 without children answered either “not too likely” or “not at all likely,” according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted in October and released this month. That proportion is up from 37% in a similar 2018 survey.
#7 After decades of dropping numbers, birth rates have now fallen beneath replacement level in every single U.S. state. It takes approximately 2.1 children per woman just to be at replacement level, and not one U.S. state is currently at that level or above.
#8 Support for Roe v. Wade just continues to go up.
In fact, a brand new Fox News survey found that support for Roe v. Wade is now at the highest level that they have ever measured…
Two-thirds of voters questioned in a Fox News national poll conducted in September wanted to keep in place Roe, which legalized abortion nationwide. The 65% opposed to overturning the abortion ruling was a record in Fox polling, up from 61% a year ago, and narrowly eclipsing the previous high of 64% in June 2019.
#9 Due to the staggering decline of the traditional family, Americans are now more lonely than they have ever been before.
One survey actually got more than 60 percent of respondents to admit that they are lonely. That is a stunning figure, and it just shows how much our emotional health has deteriorated…
More than three in five Americans are lonely, with more and more people reporting feeling like they are left out, poorly understood and lacking companionship, according to a new survey released Thursday. Workplace culture and conditions may contribute to Americans’ loneliness.
And loneliness may be on the rise. The report, led by the health insurer Cigna, found a nearly 13% rise in loneliness since 2018, when the survey was first conducted.
Our deeply insidious culture is systematically destroying our families, and most Americans don’t even realize the full extent of the damage.
If we do not reverse course, there is no hope for us.
But reversing decades of social decline will not be easy.
All of the momentum is going in one direction, and America’s values are now completely different than they were just a couple of generations ago.
Mainstream Economists Are Struggling To Hide The Incoming Economic Collapse – Brandon Smith - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5104
For many years now there has been a contingent of alternative economists working diligently within the liberty movement to combat disinformation being spread by the mainstream media regarding America's true economic condition.
Our efforts have focused primarily on the continued devaluation of the dollar and the forced dependence on globalism that has outsourced and eliminated most U.S. manufacturing and production of raw materials.
The problems of devaluation and stagflation have been present since 1913 when the Federal Reserve was officially formed and given power, but the true impetus for a currency collapse and the destruction of American buying power began in 2007-2008 when the Financial Crisis was used as an excuse to allow the Fed to create trillions upon trillions in stimulus dollars for well over a decade.
The mainstream media's claim has always been that the Fed "saved" the U.S. from imminent collapse and that the central bankers are "heroes." After all, stock markets have mostly skyrocketed since quantitative easing (QE) was introduced during the credit crash, and stock markets are a measure of economic health, right?
The devil's bargain
Reality isn't a mainstream media story. The U.S. economy isn't the stock market.
All the Federal Reserve really accomplished was to forge a devil's bargain: Trading one manageable deflationary crisis for at least one (possibly more) highly unmanageable inflationary crises down the road. Central banks kicked the can on the collapse, making it far worse in the process.
The U.S. economy in particular is extremely vulnerable now. Money created from thin air by the Fed was used to support failing banks and corporations, not just here in America but also banks and companies around the world.
Because the dollar has been the world reserve currency for the better part of the past century, the Fed has been able to print cash with wild abandon and mostly avoid inflationary consequences. This was especially true in the decade after the derivatives crunch of 2008.
Why? The dollar's global reserve status means dollars are likely to be held overseas in foreign banks and corporate coffers to be used in global trade. However, there is no such thing as a party that goes on forever. Eventually the punch runs out and the lights shut off.
If the dollar is devalued too much, whether by endless printing of new money or by relentless inflationary pressures at home, all those overseas dollars will come flooding back into the U.S. The result is an inflationary avalanche, a massive injection of liquidity exactly when it will cause the most trouble.
We are now close to this point of no return.
The difference between a crisis and a real crisis
As I have said for some time, when inflation becomes visible to the public and their pocketbooks take a hit, this is when the real crisis begins.
A Catch-22 situation arises and the Fed must make a choice:
- To continue with inflationary programs and risk taking the blame for extreme price increases
- Taper these programs and risk an implosion of stock markets which have long been artificially inflated by stimulus
Without Fed support, stock markets will die. We had a taste of this the last time the Fed flirted with tapering in 2018.
My position has always been that the Federal Reserve is not a banking institution on a mission to protect American financial interests. Rather, I believe the Fed is an ideological suicide bomber waiting to blow itself up and deliberately derail or destroy the American economy at the right moment. My position has also long been that the bankers would need a cover event to hide their calculated economic attack, otherwise they would take full blame for the resulting disaster.
The Covid pandemic, subsequent lockdowns and supply chain snarls have now provided that cover event.
Two years after the pandemic started and the Fed has pumped out approximately $6 trillion more in stimulus (officially) and helicopter money through PPP loans and Covid checks. On top of that, Biden is ready to drop another $1 trillion in the span of the next couple years through his recently passed infrastructure bill. In my article 'Infrastructure Bills Do Not Lead To Recovery, Only Increased Federal Control', published in April, I noted that:
"Production of fiat money is not the same as real production within the economy... Trillions of dollars in public works programs might create more jobs, but it will also inflate prices as the dollar goes into decline. So, unless wages are adjusted constantly according to price increases, people will have jobs, but still won't be able to afford a comfortable standard of living. This leads to stagflation, in which prices continue to rise while wages and consumption stagnate.
Another Catch-22 to consider is that if inflation becomes rampant, the Federal Reserve may be compelled (or claim they are compelled) to raise interest rates significantly in a short span of time. This means an immediate slowdown in the flow of overnight loans to major banks, an immediate slowdown in loans to large and small businesses, an immediate crash in credit options for consumers, and an overall crash in consumer spending. You might recognize this as the recipe that created the 1981-1982 recession, the third-worst in the 20th century.
In other words, the choice is stagflation, or deflationary depression."
It would appear that the Fed has chosen stagflation. We have now reached the stage of the game in which stagflation is becoming a household term, and it's only going to get worse from here on.
Lies, more lies and statistics
According to official consumer price index (CPI) calculations and Fed data, we are now witnessing the largest inflation surge in over 30 years, but the real story is much more concerning.
CPI numbers are manipulated and have been since the 1990s when calculation methods were changed and certain unsavory factors were removed. If we look at inflation according to the original way of calculation, it is actually double that reported by the government today.
In particular, necessities like food, housing and energy have exploded in price, but we are only at the beginning.
To be clear, Biden's infrastructure bill and the pandemic stimulus are not the only culprits behind the stagflation event. This has been a long time coming; it is the culmination of many years of central bank stimulus sabotage and multiple presidents supporting multiple dollar devaluation schemes. Biden simply appears to be the president to put the final nail in the coffin of the U.S. economy.
But how bad will the situation get?
"Collapse" is not too strong a word
I think most alternative economists have called the situation correctly in predicting a "collapse." This is often treated as a loaded term, but I don't know what else you could call the scenario we are facing. The covid lockdowns and the battle over the vax mandates have perhaps distracted Americans from an even larger danger of financial instability. That fight is important and must continue, but stopping the mandates does not mean the overarching threat of economic chaos goes away, and both serve the interest of central bankers and globalists.
Some of the key policies within the literature for the "Great Reset" and what the World Economic Forum calls "The 4th Industrial Revolution" includes Universal Basic Income (UBI), the "Sharing Economy" and eventually a global digital currency system using the IMF's Special Drawing Rights basket as a foundation.
Essentially, it would be a form of global technocratic communism, and if you enjoy individual freedom, being forced into total reliance on the government for your very survival does not sound appealing.
To obtain such a system would require a catastrophe of epic proportions. The Covid pandemic gets the globalists part of the way there, but it's obviously not enough. Covid has not convinced many hundreds of millions of people around the world to give up their freedoms for the sake of security.
But maybe a stagflationary collapse will accomplish what Covid has not?
Accelerated price spikes in necessities including housing and food will generate mass poverty and homelessness. There is no chance that wages will keep up with costs. The government might step in with more stimulus to help major corporations and businesses increase wages, but this would basically be the beginning of a universal basic income (UBI, or free money for everyone) and it would only cause more dollar devaluation and more inflation.
They could try to freeze prices as many communist regimes have in the past, but this only leads to increased manufacturing shut downs because the costs of production are too high and the profit incentives too low.
I suspect that the establishment will bring back regular checks (like the Covid checks) for the public now struggling to deal with ever increasing expenses and uncertainty, but with strings attached. Don't expect a UBI check, for example, if you refuse to comply with the vax mandates.
If you run a business, don't expect stimulus aid if you hire non-compliant workers. UBI gives the government ultimate control over everything, and a stagflationary crisis gives them the perfect opportunity to introduce permanent UBI.
The mainstream can no longer deny the fact that stagflation is happening and it is a threat, so hopefully those people that have not been educated on the situation will learn quickly enough to complete the preparations necessary to survive.
Countering stagflation will require localized production, decentralization and a move away from reliance on the global supply chain, the institution of local currency systems, perhaps using state banks like the one in North Dakota as a model, barter markets and physical precious metals that rise in value along with inflationary pressures. There is a lot that needs to be done, and very little time to do it.
At bottom, the fight against economic collapse and the "Great Reset" starts with each individual and how they prepare. Each person caught by surprise and stricken with poverty is just another person added to the hungry mob begging the establishment for draconian solutions like UBI.
Each properly-prepared individual is, as always, an obstacle to authoritarianism. It's time to choose which one you will be.
Oriented to the Lord - By Hal Lindsey - https://www.hallindsey.com/ww-12-5-2021/
It’s the last hours of the night. You’re driving down a highway toward the east. After a refueling stop, you get back on the highway, but now it feels like you’re going west. The highway sign assures you that you’re still going east. You check your navigation screen and it, too, says you are going east. But it feels wrong.
What do you do? You go by facts, not feelings. You trust the highway signs and the GPS even when something inside your head is turned around.
Later, the first signs of dawn begin to illuminate the eastern sky. As the sun begins to rise, it ceases to be a question of road signs. Now you know. The sun rising in the east gives your brain a new, perfect sense of orientation. You’re going east. There’s no question. You begin to wonder how you had ever felt so confused.
Feelings can sometimes lead us astray. We must orient our paths to what we know is true.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board, John F. Kennedy Jr’s 1999 plane crash came as a result of “spatial disorientation.” Encyclopaedia Britannica defines “spatial disorientation” as “the inability of a person to determine his true body position, motion, and altitude relative to the earth or his surroundings.”
The young Kennedy was only certified to fly under visual flight rules. He was not instrument rated. He had to go by sight. We become disoriented when we have nothing by which to orient ourselves, or when we try to orient ourselves by something false.
And that’s where the world is right now. In previous generations, most of even non-Christians held to certain truths. But in this generation, it’s all being turned on its head. Romans 1:18 speaks of those “who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.” [NASB] That’s happening right now.
Proverbs 22:28 says, “Do not remove the ancient landmark which your fathers have set.” [NKJV] That verse deals primarily with property rights. Don’t move the property line marker. But it also speaks of those who remove God’s moral standards by which we can orient our lives. Removing the standards is especially cruel to children.
In Jeremiah 6:16, the Lord says, “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls.” [NKJV] It’s hard to find the good path when the ancient landmark has been removed.
Sometimes as Christians, we have to fly on instruments. Don’t go by feelings, but by God’s word. Do what is right even when you don’t feel like it.
The great thing for the Lord’s followers is that we have more than instruments and landmarks. We have Jesus. He called Himself “the Good Shepherd.” A shepherd walks with his sheep, directing them and keeping them safe.
So, in these troubled and troubling times, hold fast to God’s word and walk close to the Good Shepherd.
Daily Jot: The political science of COVID - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
COVID Czar Dr. Anthony Fauci keeps telling everyone to follow the science and that any criticism of him is a criticism of science. In covering the COVID pandemic, there is a good case to be made that there is not just one science named Fauci. There are many versions of science being followed, ridiculed, and paid for by big pharma to get the desired result. No matter how you look at it, there is a lot of political science being followed with the COVID vaccine and mask mandates. Rasmussen Reports, a very accurate polling company, has used its science to take the COVID pulse of Americans, and the results are split along party lines. Democrats trust the government and vaccines. Republicans and Independents don’t.
Rasmussen Reports surveyed 1,000 American adults on November 4 and 6. The results indicated “There is a remarkable political division over requiring COVID-19 vaccination for children. Sixty-one percent (61%) of Democrats want to make the vaccine mandatory for public school students, but that opinion is shared by only 17% of Republicans and 24% of those affiliated with neither major party. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans and 61% of the unaffiliated are against a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for public school students, as are 31% of Democrats…More Republicans (78%) than Democrats (46%) or unaffiliateds (61%) are concerned about the safety of COVID-19 vaccination for children.”
A similar Rasmussen survey of likely US voters taken on December 1-2 found 74 percent, have been vaccinated and that 65 percent are at least “somewhat” confident in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. But over half, 54 percent, also say they are “concerned” about the “potential of harmful side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine.” This includes 27% who are Very Concerned; Forty-four percent (44%) who aren’t concerned about vaccine side effects, including 19% who are Not At All Concerned. Notably 64 percent of Republicans, specifically, say they are concerned about the potential of harmful side effects, and 52 percent of independents and 45 percent of Democrats also share that concern.
Moreover, 57 percent indicated they believe the federal government should NOT have the power to mandate vaccines–81 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of independents. Meantime, Fauci admitted on CBS’s Face the Nation that info is being withheld from the general public. Fauci said, “there’s a lot of data, clearly a lot of data, that’s being collected by the CDC that people don’t know about yet.”Nevertheless, citizens are expected to make informed decisions to take a COVID shot while the government is knowingly withholding data. At the same time the government is promoting a vicious narrative against the unvaccinated and wanting to shut down their ability to make a living. American voters are sensing something is amiss. As Christ said in Matthew 24:4, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” Such is the political science of COVID.
Daily Devotion: The Most Important Question of All - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Then he asked them, ‘But who do you say I am?’ —Mark 8:29
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/the-most-important-question-of-all/ - Listen
Jesus’s ministry in Galilee was coming to a close. It was a transitional moment in His ministry, and for the first time, He spoke very clearly and in great detail about why He had come.
He also asked His disciples a powerful question that we still need to answer today: “But who do you say I am?” (Mark 8:29 NLT).
Now, this is the most important question of all. It’s a question that, ultimately, we all must answer. In fact, I’ll give you the answer now: Jesus Christ is Lord. Someday, everyone will say Jesus Christ is Lord. Every Christian will say it, every non-Christian will say it, every atheist will say it, and every agnostic will say it. Every person ultimately will say that Jesus is Lord.
Maybe you’re thinking, “You’re wrong about that. Not everyone believes.” They won’t necessarily say this during their lives on Earth, but one day when they stand before God Almighty, they will acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord.
The Bible tells us, “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9–11 NKJV).
It’s one thing to say that Jesus is Lord when we’re with our Christian friends, but it’s another thing to take a stand in our culture. Jesus said, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:38 NKJV).
FROM THE HEART

IF YOU HAVE BEEN BLESSED THROUGH THIS MINISTRY, THEN WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD PLEASE REMEMBER PROPHECY UPDATE IN YOUR GIVING - WE ARE TRULY, TRULY, THANKFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT
WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT?
One of the most reliable ways to determine if a ministry is worthy of your financial support is to examine its fruits. If Prophecy Update is keeping you informed, and if that information inspires you, and causes you to draw closer to the Lord, if Prophecy Update equips you with valuable information and knowledge to share with and encourage other believers, and open the eyes of non-believers, and if Prophecy Update keeps you connected to current events relating to Bible Prophecy, then you are partaking of the fruit produced through this ministry. None of this would be possible without the Lords blessings and your support. I believe where the Lord guides, the Lord provides, and most of the time He provides through the willing and generous hearts of believers just like you and me.
Humbly Seek Your Support

"Share in the Blessings and Rewards that will last Forever!"
"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
