It’s Satan - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2021/08/01/its-satan-by-daymond-duck/
The writer of this article was recently asked, “Why do the globalists who are supposed to be very intelligent make decisions that are so clearly wrong?”
Most don’t realize it, but Satan is behind their evil.
He has blinded them to the extent that they don’t believe the Bible is the Word of God.
They push a godless world government, world religion, same-sex marriage, tracking everyone, etc., because they are not Christians (even though some falsely claim to be good Catholics, etc.).
Many were appointed by like-minded people, not elected by voters or nations.
They wouldn’t dare have an election because they don’t believe they can get elected.
The globalists overlook what the Clintons and Bidens have done because they share similar views on the issues listed above.
Their puppets impeached Trump twice because he opposed their views.
Their prosecution of Trump supporters for what happened at the capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, while ignoring the rioting, looting, destruction of property, etc. by Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and others, should concern every conservative and Christian because when the globalists get the upper hand (and they will), they will destroy the U.S. Constitution, and persecute and destroy those that disagree with them.
When they give their Antichrist power, he will go forth conquering and to conquer (Rev. 6:1-2; 13:4-7).
The following events indicate that the latter years and latter days, globalism, global pandemics, food shortages, persecution, etc., are on the horizon.
One, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog in the latter years and latter days: on July 20, 2021, Sen. Lindsey Graham said, “The Iranians are progressing (on their development of nuclear weapons) at a dangerous pace.”
Two, also concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: it was reported on July 21, 2021, that Israel’s military and foreign intelligence agency said Israel needs a variety of plans to sabotage, disrupt and delay Iran’s development of nuclear weapons, and they will probably be asking for the money and resources to do that.
Three, also concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu and Russian Pres. Putin agreed that Israel would give Russia advance notice of Israeli attacks in some areas of Syria, and Russia would not intervene.
Israel jets recently fired several missiles at Iranian targets near Aleppo, Syria, and a Russian official said Syria used Russian-made anti-missile systems to shoot down all of Israel’s missiles.
On July 24, 2021, DEBKAfile, an Israeli intelligence and security news source group, reported that a Russian official confirmed that Russia has changed its policy on not intervening in Israeli attacks in some areas of Syria because Russia has received confirmation from the Biden White House that the U.S. does not condone the continuous Israeli raids.
Thus, while the Biden administration is publicly saying Israel has a right to defend itself, it is telling Russia that some of Israel’s efforts to do that are unacceptable.
The Bible clearly teaches that the merchants of Tarshish and all the young lions (perhaps includes the U.S.) will not help Israel during the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38:13).
Corrupt world leaders, deceit, and lying are also signs of the end of the age.
Four, on July 27, 2021, i24NEWS reported that Israel has notified the Biden administration that Iran is on the verge of crossing the nuclear threshold, and it could happen at any moment.
Because Pres. Obama sent Iran a planeload of money during his administration and seems to be influencing events in the Biden administration, notifying Biden might be a waste of time.
This may help explain the belief that the U.S. will not help Israel during the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38:13).
Five, concerning famine: it is common knowledge that the Covid-19 lockdowns disrupted the world’s food chains (farmers and farmhands were quarantined; stores ran out of toilet paper, some foods, etc.; food processors closed or cut back; some trucks stopped rolling, etc.).
On July 23, 2023, it was reported that there are still bare shelves in some food stores in the U.K., the food supply chains are “at risk of collapse,” millions of workers have been ordered to self-quarantine, the food industry is running out of workers to keep the stores supplied, and the U.K. could be just a few months away from a major crisis.
Under the guise of stopping the spread of Covid, the U.K. government may be creating “food shortages and mass famine.”
Note: It was recently reported that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell warned that there will be another lockdown in the U.S. if American citizens “don’t wise up and get vaccinated against Covid-19.”
Note: On July 28, 2021, in an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Stuart Varney said an important business group is predicting that supply shortages will last until 2023.
Some prophecy teachers believe that Covid-19 is a created crisis (a pretext, a set-up, perhaps an engineered cluster of catastrophes) that globalists are using to prepare the world for a world government.
According to the pro-liberty group, Brighteon, on July 22, 2021, “very few people are prepared to survive a multi-layered, engineered cluster of catastrophes that are unleashed on top of each other.”
God’s Seal, Trumpet, and Bowl judgments during the Tribulation Period will be multi-layered catastrophes (pandemics, famine, economic collapse, etc.) on top of each other, and very few will survive.
Note: This writer believes we could be watching the development (early stages) of those multi-layered judgments.
Six, concerning deceit: on July 20, 2021, Sen. Rand Paul said on Sean Hannity’s T.V. program, “I will be sending a letter to the Department of Justice asking for a criminal referral (of Dr. Anthony Fauci) because he has lied to Congress” (about the involvement of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the research at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology).
Note: This writer does not know how to verify it but has seen reports that Fauci owns stock in one or more of the companies that have been approved to sell the Covid-19 vaccine (If true, he is likely profiting off forcing people to be vaccinated and opposing the use of Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin).
Second Note: It has been reported that Fauci could spend up to 5 years in prison, but it is the opinion of this writer that the globalists (also called the Shadow Government, Deep State, super-wealthy elitists, etc.) will protect him because they are pro-vaccination. They want him to keep using his ever-changing fake science.
Seven, concerning world government and open borders: on July 21, 2021, it was reported that keeping the U.S. border with Mexico open is costing about 3 million dollars a day in suspension and termination payments to contractors to guard steel, concrete, and other materials they have in the desert.
Eight, militant Muslims say Jews should not be allowed on the Temple Mount because the entire Temple Mount is an Islamic site and none of it belongs to Israel.
For this reason, Jewish officials have allowed Jews to visit the Temple Mount at certain times, but they have not been allowed to pray on the Temple Mount.
On July 17, 2021, the eve of Tisha B’ Av (a holiday for remembering the destruction of the first 2 Jewish Temples; July 17-18 in 2021), it was reported that Jews were praying (and some were teaching Torah, a name for the Scriptures in the first 5 books of the Bible) on the Temple Mount.
On July 20, 2021, Prime Min. Bennett came out in support of freedom of worship for Jews on the Temple Mount.
This may lead to more violence, but it is worth noting that the Jews have gone from not being allowed to pray on the Temple Mount to praying and teaching on the Temple Mount, and Israel’s new Prime Min. supports it.
According to the Bible, the Jews will eventually get permission to rebuild the Temple.
Update: On July 25, 2021, it was reported that the temporary truce between Israel and the Palestinians is fragile, may be coming unraveled, and another war could be on the horizon.
Nine, concerning pestilence: on July 22, 2021, Israeli Prime Min. Bennett said as of Aug. 8, 2021, Israeli citizens will not be allowed to enter synagogues and other facilities without a vaccine certificate or proof of a negative Covid-19 test.
U.S. citizens are not having to prove that they have been vaccinated to attend places of worship, but some companies are requiring it.
Ten, concerning natural disasters: on July 26, 2021, it was reported that June in North America was “the hottest in recorded history.”
Record high temperatures were broken in several western states.
The southwest U.S. is experiencing the worst drought in 122 years.
86 wildfires are burning in 12 states, drought conditions have made them worse, two major wildfires have merged, and more than 10,000 houses are in danger.
The long-range forecast is for the high temperatures to continue through the fall.
Call it what you want; some officials are already blaming it on global warming because it fits their globalist agenda. But natural disasters will be like birth pains (increase in frequency and intensity) at the end of the age, and this record-breaking event seems to qualify.
As I close, understand that as bad as things are right now, Satan and the Antichrist are limited or partly restrained (II Thess. 2:7-9).
But the time will come (the Tribulation Period) when Satan and the Antichrist will no longer be restrained, and the events will be worse than anything that has ever happened or ever will happen (Matt. 24:22).
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.
Will Most of The U.S. Be Locked Down for Much of The Second Half Of 2021? - by Michael Snyder - http://endoftheamericandream.com/will-most-of-the-u-s-be-locked-down-for-much-of-the-second-half-of-2021/
For most of the first half of 2021, the vast majority of Americans believed that the COVID pandemic was nearly over. But now the Delta variant has changed everything. We are being told that the number of confirmed cases is absolutely skyrocketing, and new mandates and restrictions are now being instituted all over the nation. If the number of newly confirmed cases each day continues to rise, could we also see a return of widespread lockdowns and school closings? Such a notion would have been unimaginable just a few weeks ago, but now the Biden administration is openly admitting that it is a possibility…
White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday that the Biden administration will continue to “listen to the scientists” when it comes to potential future lockdowns and school closures.
And as he was leaving for Camp David on Friday, Joe Biden made another comment which has a lot of people wondering what is coming next…
President Joe Biden signaled the onset of more restrictions to stem the spread of COVID-19 as the highly contagious delta variant rips through the nation.
While departing for Camp David on Friday, the commander in chief shouted a response to a reporter who asked if people should expect tougher constraints than what’s already been implemented.
“In all probability,” he replied.
Of course Joe Biden does not have the authority to order lockdowns in every state.
Ultimately, it will be up to individual state governors to order new lockdowns, but if the Biden administration recommends lockdowns most of them will fall in line.
In addition, on Thursday Biden seemed to suggest that the idea of some sort of a nationwide vaccine mandate is being explored…
Asked about doing even more to get people vaccinated through mandates by states, localities, and businesses, Biden said he wants them to ‘continue to move in that direction.’
He also didn’t rule out the idea of a national mandate, though he wouldn’t vouch for the authority. ‘It’s still a question of whether the federal government can mandate the whole country. I don’t know that yet.’
Such a mandate would surely be challenged in court, but as CNN has explained, the Biden administration may not need to issue a nationwide mandate because so many private employers are now mandating the vaccine…
The CNN article, however, contends it may not even be necessary for the federal government to do something as radical as mandating the vaccine, suggesting it may become nearly impossible to participate in everyday life without one if employers, stores, and hospitals impose requirements one by one.
“The federal government may not try to force people to get the Covid vaccine,” the report reads. “And it may not have to.”
“Your employer, the restaurant where you want to eat, the concert venue you want to visit or the country where you want to travel may do it for them,” it adds.
At this point, many of the biggest employers in America have already pulled the trigger.
Walmart is the largest employer in the country, and on Friday they announced a very strict new vaccine policy…
Walmart Chief Executive Doug McMillon said Friday the retailer’s corporate staff as well as its management-level employees must be vaccinated against Covid-19 by Oct. 4, according to a memo obtained by CNBC.
The mandate applies to all home office associates, in addition to market, regional and divisional employees who work in multiple facilities, the nation’s largest private employer said.
Disney also announced a very broad vaccine mandate on Friday…
The Walt Disney Company said Friday it is requiring all salaried and non-union hourly employees in the U.S. to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus by the end of September.
Employees who are still working from home will be required to provide verification of vaccination prior to returning to any Disney sites, including theme parks and offices.
Many big tech companies are jumping on board as well. For example, Facebook will be requiring “anyone coming to work” to be vaccinated…
Facebook will require U.S. workers returning to its offices to be vaccinated, the company said on Wednesday.
“As our offices reopen, we will be requiring anyone coming to work at any of our US campuses to be vaccinated,” VP of People Lori Goler said in a statement.
Needless to say, people that refuse to take the vaccines will find their employment options increasingly limited in the months ahead.
Meanwhile we received some very interesting news about the Delta variant on Friday. The following comes from CNBC…
About three-fourths of people infected in a Massachusetts Covid-19 outbreak were fully vaccinated against the coronavirus with four of them ending up in the hospital, according to new data published Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The new data, published in the U.S. agency’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, also found that fully vaccinated people who get infected carry as much of the virus in their nose as unvaccinated people, and could spread it to other individuals.
Sadly, these numbers from Massachusetts appear to fit very well with a pattern that is emerging nationwide. The following comes from NBC News…
At least 125,000 fully vaccinated Americans have tested positive for Covid and 1,400 of those have died, according to data collected by NBC News.
Those numbers are really shocking.
So how bad will things get in the months ahead?
Many Americans had been hoping for a return to normalcy, but as I keep warning, our world is only going to get even weirder in the years ahead.
At this point, we have entered a chapter in our history when change is happening faster than ever before.
In particular, this pandemic has radically transformed our society in a very short period of time, and it has become clear that it isn’t even close to being over.
China's Next Step to Challenge the US - Digital Currency – Judith Bergman - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=4877
Communist China is adding another element to its toolbox of surveilling and controlling its population. Already known as the country in the world with the most pervasive surveillance and social credit system, China has now created a digital currency, the digital renminbi or yuan -- also known as Digital Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP) -- to ensure that hardly any transaction goes unregistered.
Unlike cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, which are not issued by governments and therefore cannot be used as means of payment in most daily transactions, China's digital currency is issued and controlled by China's central bank.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the currency "is expected to give China's government vast new tools to monitor both its economy and its people. By design, the digital yuan will negate one of bitcoin's major draws: anonymity for the user."
"DCEP is the antithesis of Bitcoin. The ultimate goal of a cryptocurrency is the separation of money and state," said Stewart Mackenzie, a cryptocurrency expert based in Hong Kong. "It's easy for them to say that it's like Bitcoin when it's worlds apart."
The real purpose of the new digital currency, however, seems to be to challenge the long-standing global reign of the US dollar. "China must brace for a full-blown escalation of the struggle with the United States and prepare to gradually decouple the Chinese yuan from the US dollar," Zhou Li, a former deputy director of the Communist Party's International Liaison Department wrote in July 2020. "By taking advantage of the dollar's global monopoly position in the financial sector, the US will pose an increasingly severe threat to China's further development."
China has been working on the digital yuan since 2014 and launched it as a pilot project in four Chinese cities last year. The digital currency has since been expanded to 10 cities and provinces covering 100 million people, where the pilot has been conducted in the form of lotteries.
In Shenzhen, for instance, the government gave away a total of 10 million yuan (about $1.5 million) to about 50,000 people, which they could then use with 3,000 local merchants after downloading a digital renminbi app.
Shenzhen is home to some of the country's biggest tech giants, such as Huawei and Tencent; Walmart reportedly also participated in the pilot project. Another Chinese e-commerce company, JD.com, as part of the project, paid its employees with the digital yuan. There are reportedly also plans to have foreign athletes and visitors at the 2022 Beijing Olympics use the digital yuan as a means of payment.
Most recently, it has been reported that China will hand out 40 million renminbi ($6.2 million) of its digital currency to citizens in Beijing in a lottery; that it is testing the digital yuan in Hong Kong, and that it recently rolled out more than 3,000 ATMs in Beijing where people will be able to convert digital yuans to cash and vice versa.
China is denying that launching the digital yuan is fraught with hidden agendas, such as challenging the dollar. "For the internationalization of renminbi, we have said many times that it's a natural process, and our goal is not to replace US dollar or any other international currency," said Li Bo, a deputy governor of the People's Bank of China. "Our goal is to allow the market to choose."
"Some foreign media outlets recently associated the process with geopolitics, assuming that the PBC [People's Bank of China] plans to establish a new global financial configuration by issuing DC/EP [digital currency/electronic payment]," the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Global Times wrote recently.
"Some even jumped to the conclusion that the Chinese government deems the issue and control of a sovereign digital currency as a 'new battlefield' of national competition. In fact, the PBC's decision is merely a necessary move to comply with the inevitable trend of global currency development.
From material objects and precious metals to paper notes and the digital currency in the future, pursuing simpler and easier payments is an unstoppable trend of monetary and financial development."
The CCP, however, has an unfortunate history of not adhering strictly to its own pledges. In 1984, it pledged that Hong Kong's autonomy, including its rights and freedoms, would remain unchanged for 50 years under the principle of "one country, two systems" after the territory's 1997 return to Chinese sovereignty.
By June 2020, however, when the CCP introduced its national security law in Hong Kong, it had reneged on its pledge. The CCP continues to crush Hong Kong. Last week, the CCP arrested Ryan Law and four other senior editors and executives of Apple Daily, a Hong Kong newspaper dedicated to promoting democracy. The paper's founder and owner, Jimmy Lai, 72, is presently serving a 20-month prison sentence.
The CCP further broke its 2015 commitment not to militarize artificial islands that Beijing had been building in the Spratly Islands chain in the South China Sea, and it has never honored at least nine of the commitments it made when it joined the World Trade Organization, to name just a few instances.
This list of broken pledges does not even include the lies that China told the world about the supposed non-transmissibility of the Coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan and has so far taken nearly four million lives and ravaged countless economies.
Despite the CCP's protests to the contrary, there seems to be little doubt that China sees its new digital currency as a crucial element in the competition to become the world's dominant technological power: The new digital currency is part of the CCP's ambition, as laid out in its new Five-Year Plan for the years 2021-2025, to digitalize China.
The digitalization, in turn, is part of China's ambition to become technologically independent of the West and to dominate global tech and overtake the US as the world's dominant power by 2049, the 100th anniversary of China's Communist Revolution.
China's Five-Year Plan mentions blockchain technology:
"We will foster and strengthen emerging digital industries such as artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cloud computing, and cyber security..."
The Proposal of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party on Drawing Up the 14th Five-Year Plan mentions "digital currency development":
"We will develop the digital economy, promote digital industrialization and industrial digitalization, promote the deep integration of the digital and real economies, and create internationally competitive digital industry clusters... Construct a modern central bank system, refine money supply management mechanisms, safely promote digital currency development..."
Crucially, China's new digital currency, in addition to increasing state control and surveillance in China, as well as challenging the US dollar, could affect the ability of the US and other countries to level sanctions at the Chinese government for its human rights abuses and other breaches of international law. According to Sahil Mahtani, writing in American Affairs Journal in April:
"... a groundbreaking digital currency launched by China's central bank is likely to create a parallel payments network--one beyond American oversight--thereby crippling U.S. sanctions policy. This development will compromise U.S. power around the world, and therefore should attract interest from more than the usual suspects who obsess over digital currencies...
"The expansion of a Chinese digital currency will ultimately pry open the U.S. grip over global payments, and therefore compromise U.S. sanctions policy and a significant measure of U.S. power in the world...
"It is not that China's digital currency is going to become the dominant standard of payments ... But it could become one standard, creating a parallel system with which to avoid the long arm of U.S. regulation."
The US, on its part, does not appear ready for China's challenge over the future of money. Jerome H. Powell, the chair of the Federal Reserve, said in March that at this stage the Fed was only looking into whether there is even a need for a central bank digital currency.
He also said that U.S. officials would only consider issuing a digital dollar if they believed there was a clear use and if the idea had widespread public and political buy-in, according to the New York Times. "Does the public want, or need, a new digital form of central bank money to complement what is already a highly efficient, reliable and innovative payments arena?" said Powell.
"Not only are the American monetary authorities underestimating the threat posed to dollar dominance by China's pioneering combination of digital currency and electronic payments," wrote Stanford Professor Niall Ferguson recently. "They are also treating the blockchain-based financial innovations that offer the best alternative to China's e-yuan like gatecrashers at their own exclusive party."
7 Key Facts About the Mark of the Beast - By Hal Lindsey – www.hallindsey.com
The Bible uses only a few words to describe the mark of the beast money system. But that description gives us an amazing amount of information. Here are just seven of the things it teaches us.
Number One — The system will be global. Revelation 13:7-8 says, “authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him [the Antichrist]. And all who dwell on the earth will worship him.” The mark of the beast will be tied to his authority and will be part of the worship people give him.
Number Two — The mark will be required by law, and no one will be exempt. Revelation 13:16-17 says that the False Prophet “causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead.” Wealth will not buy an exemption, and neither will poverty.
Number Three — Some will reject the mark despite the law. At the time of the rapture, the dead in Christ will be resurrected into new heavenly bodies and caught up to meet the Lord in the air. Those in Christ who are still living will change. Their mortal bodies will change into immortal, heavenly ones. After the rapture, others will turn to Christ. These post-rapture followers of Jesus will be distinguished in part by the fact that they will refuse the mark of the beast. Revelation 20:4 says, “I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand.”
Number Four — The mark of the beast will be the culmination of a great deception. Revelation 13:14 says the False Prophet “deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast.” This deception leads directly to the mark.
Number Five — Satan will empower the mark system. Daniel 8:24 makes this intriguing statement about the Antichrist. “His power will be mighty, but not by his own power.” We find that verse explained in Revelation 13:2. “The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.” Revelation 12:9 and 20:2 explain that the dragon is Satan.
Number Five — The mark of the beast will be the ultimate rejection of God. Revelation 14:11 says, “And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; and they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
Number Six — The Antichrist and False Prophet will use the mark as a weapon against believers. Revelation 13:7 is speaking of Antichrist when it says, “And it was given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.” Imagine a worldwide law that does not allow anyone without the mark to buy or sell. In our jobs, we sell our work, services, or creative output. In our day-to-day living, we buy food, clothes, transportation, and housing. All that will stop for tribulation believers because they will refuse the mark of the beast. That’s one of the ways Antichrist will make war with them and overcome them.
Number Seven — The mark system will not last long. At the halfway mark of the seven-year tribulation period, Antichrist will shatter his covenant with Israel. In the last three and one-half years of tribulation, pain and chaos will reign on the earth. At the end of the seven years, Jesus will return. Antichrist and the False Prophet will be thrown into the lake of fire. The seven years will seem long to those experiencing it, but in the context of eternity, it will be like nothing.
Our time here is short. We need to get the word out to everyone we can by every means available.
Daily Jot: Religious Freedom Takes Another Hit - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
President Joe Biden made history by saying he will name the first Muslim as Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, replacing former Kansas Governor Sam Brownback. Reminiscent of the “all things Muslim” Obama Administration, Biden’s choice, Rashad Hussain, is credited as an operative of the Muslim Brotherhood who was instrumental in helping turn the Obama White House into a supporter of the terrorist sponsoring group. Hussain has a long list of questionable affiliations with names and events considered supportive of Islamic terrorist organizations, according to several media outlets. Given Hussain’s background, this is a setback for advocating religious freedom around the world.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism carried an article by the Egyptian Magazine Rose El-Youssef written in December 2012 discussing Hussain’s questionable ties: “In June 2002 Hussein was included as part of a team of Congress aides at the annual conference of the American Islamic Council (AMC) headed by Abdulrahman Al Amoudi a Muslim Brotherhood leader in the United States currently imprisoned after being accused of masterminding a plot to assassinate Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. He was also part of the organizing committee of the conference of the Critical Islamic Reflections (CIR) organization with elements of the American Muslim Brotherhood, Jamal Barzanji, Hisham Taleb, and Yaqub Mirza.
“He [Hussain] has also been linked to the SAFA organization and a network of Islamic organizations located in Northern Virginia whose headquarters was raided by the federal government in March 2002 which confirmed their relationship with the international organization of the Brotherhood…” The article also says that Hussain helped write Obama’s famous “New Beginnings” Cairo speech advocating a strategy that aligned the US with nontraditional foreign policy partners such as the renown terrorist sponsoring Muslim Brotherhood, and both direct and indirect elements of al Qaeda, resulting in the destabilization of Muslim governments across Northern Africa and the Middle East during an offensive called Arab Spring. This was reportedly Hussain’s contribution to the Obama Administration’s foreign policy.
Politico reported that as Obama’s Islamic envoy in 2010, Hussain called the trial of college professor Sami Al-Arian under the Patriot Act politically motivated, although Al-Arian’s ties to Islamic Jihad were proven and he plead guilty to aiding terrorists. Hussain is a bad choice. One need look no further than statistics from Nigeria’s International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law where in that country nearly 3,500 Christians were murdered in the first 200 days of 2021 and some 3,000 mostly Christian girls and women were kidnapped—by Islamists. 2 Corinthians 3:17 says, ”where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.” Islam is the antithesis of liberty. Biden’s nomination of Hussain, who has a track record of supporting radical Islam, is tone deaf, disrespectful, and insulting to Christians and Jews around the world.
Daily Devotion: Humbly Help - Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. —Galatians 6:1
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/humbly-help/ - Listen
“Brothers and sisters, if someone gets caught in sin, you who are spiritual should tell as many people as possible and kick them while they’re down.”
Have you ever read that verse? No, you haven’t, because it isn’t in the Bible. But you would think that it is when you see the actions of some people.
The Bible says that “hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins” (Proverbs 10:12 NKJV).
We find a classic example of this in the way Jesus responded to the woman who was caught in adultery. He said, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you? . . . Neither do I. Go and sin no more” (John 8:10, 11 NLT).
Galatians 6:1 tells us, “Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself” (NLT).
We want to restore those who have fallen. We want to help them get back on their feet. Some people who fall into sin don’t know how to get out of the pit they’re in. They don’t know how to break free.
That’s where you and I come in. “You who are godly,” Paul said, “should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path.”
We also should note that the phrase “overcome by some sin” in Galatians 6:1 implies that it wasn’t premeditated. It speaks of someone who lowered their guard and got caught, like an animal in a trap.
Yes, they messed up, but it’s our job to restore them. How? Gently. The Greek word Paul used for restore refers to setting a broken bone or putting a dislocated limb back into place.
We should always desire to restore, not condemn, a person who is caught in sin.

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

Our Prayer for You- "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 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. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
