Major Problems and Signs Galore - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2022/07/24/major-problems-and-signs-galore-by-daymond-duck/
The world’s problems and end-of-the-age prophetic signs appear to be increasing as world leaders move closer to their goal of rejecting Jehovah, Jesus, and the Bible by 2030 or sooner (Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of America; the UN’s Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development goals; The New World Order; Satan’s Antichrist world government and religion, etc.).
World leaders think they can tear down the existing systems in more than 190 nations and build back a better one-world system, but Jesus intends to Rapture His Church into heaven and use the Tribulation Period to take back, refresh and restore this planet (Rev. 11:15; Acts 3:19-21).
One, concerning world government: on July 19, 2022, Gateway Pundit reported that the UN World Health Organization (WHO) restarted negotiations on the new “International Pandemic Treaty” (restarted on July 18, 2022).
According to the author (Alicia Powe), the restarted negotiations will end on July 22, 2022, and the negotiating group will produce a draft treaty by Aug. 22, 2022.
According to previous reports, it is my understanding that the treaty is designed to give the WHO Director-General the unrestricted authority:
Later, it was reported that the WHO wants the treaty:
It is now being reported that those drafting the treaty will also consider including equity, transparency, inclusiveness, gender equality, and diversity. (Do world leaders really want one man controlling all these things all over the world?)
The article closed with a reminder that “Yuval Noah Harari (the chief advisor to Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum founder) has stated globalist elites will manipulate “crisis” to institute a world government.”
I cannot predict what will be in this draft treaty but know enough to say that an incredible fulfillment of world government Bible prophecy appears to be just weeks away.
Here is a link to the Gateway Pundit article:
Two, concerning the surrender of America’s sovereignty: on July 13, 2022, it was reported that legislation has been introduced in Congress to pull the U.S. out of the UN and the WHO (called the American Sovereignty Restoration Act; H.R. 7806).
The bill to restore America’s sovereignty has been referred to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and America’s shadow government is expected to keep it tied up or kill it.
Former Pres. Trump started the process to get the U.S. out of the WHO, but Pres. Biden ended that when he took office.
Three, concerning famine and food shortages: the World Economic Forum (WEF) is now trying to control global farming.
Good crops depend upon the proper amount and application of fertilizer (nitrogen, phosphorus, etc.), pesticides, and grass killers.
Every farmer knows that less fertilizer means less food, but globalists at the WEF are trying to force EU farmers to reduce their use of fertilizers and chemicals to meet climate change goals (and they will eventually do it to the U.S. and all other nations).
At the urging of Bill Gates, the WEF wants people to start eating insects and synthetic meat.
Many people will be doing that in the future if citizens don’t start kicking back on globalism and climate change.
(More: On July 8, 2022, it was reported that the Dutch government is driving farmers out of business by limiting how many cattle farmers can own so the government can meet climate change emission goals. Reducing the number of cattle in the country is causing the availability and price of meat to soar.)
(More: On July 11, 2022, it was reported that the Canadian government has given $8.5 million to build a factory to grow crickets and produce cricket protein to feed humans.)
Four, concerning food shortages: the Associated Press (AP) recently reported that inflation in the U.S. is causing lines at food banks to grow longer.
The number of U.S. citizens that can’t afford to feed their family is steadily increasing.
(More: On July 18, 2022, it was reported that some supermarkets in the UK have started putting security tags (tags that trigger a loud signal if not removed from the food before it is taken out of the store) on some of the more scarce or expensive food products in the store.)
(More: If Pres. Biden doesn’t intervene, on July 18, 2022, about 57,000 U.S. rail workers are scheduled to go on strike, all trains in the U.S. will stop, and the supply chain crisis will grow worse in a hurry.)
Five, concerning energy shortages: on July 11, 2022, it was reported that the Electric Reliability Council of Texas was urging Texans to conserve energy because there was a heat wave in Texas, and there was not enough wind power to operate the power grid in an efficient manner.
(More: On July 12, 2022, Mexican Pres. Obrador met with Pres. Biden at the White House, told Biden his energy policy is seriously flawed, said Mexico intends to keep expanding its energy production, and Mexico is willing to sell gasoline to the U.S. Mexico is allowing U.S. vehicles to cross the border to buy gas, collecting taxes that would go to the U.S. and, of course, keeping them.)
(More: On July 12, 2022, Russia shut down its Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline to Europe for 10 days of routine maintenance. Russia is expected to let the gas start flowing again on July 22, 2022, but there is major concern that Russia won’t restart it. That would be devastating for the EU economy and cause major damage to the U.S. economy.)
(More: On July 15, 2022, it was reported that French Pres. Macron said France will start turning off public lighting to save energy. He urged citizens to prepare for higher food prices and every company to try to conserve energy. He said France must be ready to completely stop using Russian gas.)
(More: On July 16, 2022, it was reported that owners of Tesla vehicles are receiving in-car alerts to not charge their vehicles because the Texas power grid is on the verge of failure.)
(More: On July 19, 2022, it was reported that rumors are coming from the White House that Pres. Biden is preparing to declare a “climate emergency” and use an executive order to impose more spending on climate change and more restrictions on businesses, citizens, and America’s oil and natural gas industry. The result could very well be more inflation, higher prices, and who knows what else.)
Six, concerning the tracking of everyone: on July 11, 2022, it was reported that China’s health minister has ordered every citizen that tests positive for Covid-19 to wear a tracking bracelet to ensure that they remain inside their house.
The tracking bracelets can determine and report one’s body temperature, location, and movements.
This is more evidence that the day of tracking all buying and selling could be close.
(More: This week, a reader sent an announcement to me that says, “Air Canada proudly presents a collaboration of Air Canada, the Canadian Government, and the World Economic Forum for a new official Digital ID program coming October 2022.” The announcement gives a phone number for citizens to order their digital ID, and it says Digital ID and Facial Recognition Booths are being set up at the Toronto Pearson Airport.)
(FYI: For several years, some economists have said a global banking crisis is needed to get the public to accept a global digital currency, and it is very possible that their desired crisis is shaping up. One of the most desired features of a global digital currency is the ability to track and control all buying and selling. It is comforting to know that the Rapture will happen at least 3 ½ years before the Antichrist and False Prophet start tracking every transaction, and all of this seems to indicate that we could be getting close.)
Seven, concerning a covenant of peace in the Middle East: on July 15, 2022, Pres. Biden met with Palestinian Pres. Mahmoud Abbas in East Jerusalem (with no Israelis allowed; a symbolic sign that Biden doesn’t recognize Israel’s claim to East Jerusalem).
While there, Biden said, “The Palestinian people deserve a state of their own that’s independent, viable, sovereign, and (inaudible), two states for two people. Both of them have deep financial roots in Zion, living side by side in peace and security” (peace and safety).
Paul said, “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction [the Tribulation Period] cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (I Thess. 5:3).
Globalists will keep pushing a satanic covenant of peace and safety until there is an agreement, and that will trigger the Tribulation Period.
(More: On July 14, 2022, former Israeli Prime Min. Benjamin Netanyahu promised “to bring about full peace agreements with Saudi Arabia and also with other Arab countries” if he is elected to be the next Prime Min. Saudi Arabia is offering peace with Israel in exchange for the Two-State Solution—the division of Israel and Jerusalem.)
(More: On July 20, 2022, Mahmoud Abbas will be in Paris, France, to discuss implementation of the Two-State Solution with French Pres. Macron. God said He will drag the nations into the Battle of Armageddon for doing this, but those that are rejecting Jehovah, Jesus, and the Bible don’t know it or they don’t believe it; Joel 3:2.)
(More: Jerusalem will be a cup of trembling and a burdensome stone for the whole world during the Tribulation Period, and the struggle over Jerusalem has grown more intense with Biden’s trip to the Middle East; Zech. 12:2-3.)
Eight, concerning a global economic collapse: there is a growing concern that several nations (El Salvador, Ghana, Egypt, Tunisia, and Pakistan) are in danger of defaulting on their national debt, and if they do, they could drag other nations down with them (Rev. 6:5-6).
Nine, concerning pestilence: on July 16, 2022, it was reported that 90% of the Covid deaths in England since April were people that had been triple or quadruple jabbed, and half of the population has refused to be vaccinated.
Ten, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on July 19, 2022, the presidents of Russia, Iran, and Turkey (the three main nations that attack Israel in the Battle of Gog and Magog) met in Iran to strengthen their relationship and find common ground on their occupation of Syria.
Many prophecy teachers believe the growing ties between these three former enemies are setting the stage for a joint attack on Israel.
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.
Preparing For the Next Collapse - Central Bank Digital Currency Is Coming – Matt Agorist - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5478
The Office of Financial Research (OFR) is the independent bureau within the United States Department of the Treasury which was formed in response to the financial crisis of 2007-08 -- and the subsequent Great Recession that ensued. The OFR's responsible for collecting financial data and making recommendations to the Treasury's Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) based on that data, who then "responds to emerging risks to the stability of the United States' financial system."
This is the same department, who for the last 2 years, oversaw one of the largest transfers of wealth in the history of the world -- and they approved every bit of it. Their influence in the global economy cannot be overstated, which is why the OFR's recent white paper is particularly troublesome.
On July 11, 2022, the OFR published a working paper advocating for a Central Bank Digital Currency. In their abstract, the authors claim that a CBDC will counter against bank runs by "monitoring the flow of funds into CBDC" which "allows policymakers to identify and resolve weak banks sooner, which also decreases depositors' incentive to run."
While this may seem like a good way to prevent a bank run, the fact that a bank run is happening at all should send chills down your spine. The fact that the OFR is preparing for one is unsettling enough, but the fact that their answer is a CBDC should make everyone start to pay attention.
Remember in February when Canada's Prime Minister began freezing the bank accounts of protesters who stood against tyrannical mandates and arresting them? Not only did they go after the protesters, but the government went after the bank accounts of those who provided monetary support in the form of donations as well.
For practicing their free speech, Canadians were persecuted and driven into financial ruin by the government who claims to protect them. This was all carried out with zero due process, without any democratic input at all, and with zero resistance from the banks, who later apologized.
Think about the ease with which this was done using the Canadian dollar and real money inside real banks and then consider the implications had the Canadians already adopted the federated digital ID system with a digital asset controlled by the central bank and the state. Sounds like a conspiracy theory, doesn't it? Unfortunately, it's not and it will be here before you know it.
But don't take my word for it, listen to Neil Parmenter, the President and CEO of the Canadian Bankers Association explain how this new system, supported by the World Economic Forum, will work. Plastic credit cards, ID cards, and cash are a thing of the past. Under the Great Reset, your entire financial portfolio will be controlled by the central bank and your assets relegated to a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), that can be turned off in a split second by the tyrannical regime you dare to criticize.
"Canada's banks are perfectly situated to help lead the creation of a federated digital ID system between government and the private sector.
The World Economic Forum agrees."

President & CEO
Canadian Bankers Association
-- Cecil Charles (@thececilcharles) February 23, 2022
We just witnessed Canada seize the assets of its citizens for peaceful protest, and now they are pushing a new system in which the state and central banks literally control everything. And it's spreading -- to America.
On top of this month's working paper, in February, Federal Reserve Board Governor Lael Brainard laid out plans for the United States to adopt a similar system.
"It is essential that policymakers, including the Federal Reserve, plan for the future of the payment system and consider the full range of possible options to bring forward the potential benefits of new technologies, while safeguarding stability," Brainard said in remarks prepared for delivery to the U.S Monetary Policy Forum in New York. "A U.S. CBDC may be one potential way to ensure that people around the world who use the dollar can continue to rely on the strength and safety of U.S. currency to transact and conduct business in the digital financial system."
Don't let the rhetoric about competing in the digital currency age fool you. Bitcoin and other decentralized cryptocurrencies are a threat to the global banking cartel because they cannot control it. The anonymity and independence fostered by cryptocurrencies on the blockchain are enemies to the ruling class who seek to maintain control through centralization.
This is why China, last year, banned cryptocurrency trading and mining. It is a threat to their totalitarian grip over its citizens. It is also why they have ushered in the digital yuan. China has been working on their own digital currency since 2014 and the e-CNY is already being pushed on its citizens.
The e-CNY is completely controlled by the People's Bank of China (PBOC), the country's central bank and the Chinese Communist Party who exclusively leads the People's Republic of China. Every single transaction conducted with the e-CNY is a matter of state record.
Given China's Orwellian social credit system which punishes people for smoking, bad driving, shining a negative light on the CCP, and wasting money on "frivolous purchases," the idea of the state controlling the whole of an individual's assets is chilling. Yet this is exactly what has been unravelling in China for the last 8 years. And others are now following suit.
One indicator that CBDCs are an ominous ploy by the banking cartel and the state to take over our lives is the fact that the Atlantic Council is a lead proponent of them. For those who may be unaware, the Atlantic Council is the think tank contracted by Facebook and Twitter to conduct censorship operations on their platforms.
Their censorship arm, known as the Digital Forensic Research Lab, was suspected to have played a large role in the removal of hundreds of anti-establishment pages in 2018 and the years after.
On their website, the Atlantic Council advocates for central bank-controlled digital currencies, and notes how 87 countries - which account for over 90% of the world's gross domestic product - are exploring a digital currency, and five countries have already launched one.
One of the main reasons the council and others advocate for such a centralization of power is to limit or prevent "illicit activity." This is a prominent selling point from both the Atlantic Council and the equally dubious World Economic Forum.
In their White Paper Series on a Digital Currency Governance Consortium, the WEF outlines a plan for private entities, i.e. central banks, and the state to work together to prevent any activity the two deem "illicit" -- like protesting forced vaccinations, for example.
An outspoken opponent to the CBCDs is Maajid Nawaz who recently appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast and laid out in shocking detail the implications for such a system, which as illustrated above is being pushed by all the world's power players. In his example, he notes that the vaccine passport system is the gateway through which the digital currency will be pushed.
Nawaz detailed the new system.
"So the vaccine passport infrastructure is in place. But now we know that the vaccine doesn't stop infection or transmission but the Checkpoint Charlie exists everywhere. They bring in digital banking, central banking, digital currencies. You've got a scenario now that you're checking in and out everywhere you go, using vouchers that are programmed and you can only spend where you're told you can spend them.
"There's another word for that. That's called the Chinese social credit system. That's what it's called. And anyone who watches Black Mirror will know what I'm talking about," Nawaz said.
"So what they are telling us, and when I say they, who's they, people in power, that's the head of our economy, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the second most powerful person other than the prime minister, and maybe the foreign secretary in the UK, right?
"He's telling us I just played it there for you. He's telling us that's what he, as the UK, the head of the G7 want to bring in for the G7. So a scenario where like in New York at the moment, because the passport infrastructure is in place, you bring in that digital currency, and you've got this total control. And if I'm speaking to you the way I'm speaking now, and my employer or government... deems me as saying or doing something inappropriate, suddenly, I can't actually pay to come here and speak to you anymore. My digital currency won't even pay for the ticket. Because it will be known that I'm coming to speak to you, 'sorry, your vouchers don't allow you to purchase that ticket to go and speak to Joe.'"
This is a system that Hitler, Stalin, or Mao would have relished. Imagine a dictator having global transaction censorship across their empires, and at the touch of a button they could silence their political enemies and propel them into financial ruin. That is what's coming.
14 Signs That The U.S. Economy Is Poised To Crash Really Hard During The Second Half Of 2022 - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/14-signs-that-the-u-s-economy-is-poised-to-crash-really-hard-during-the-second-half-of-2022/
It looks like we are going to get official confirmation that a recession has already begun when the GDP number for the second quarter comes out later this week. But that isn’t what we should be focusing on. Yes, things weren’t great during the first half of 2022, but they are going to be significantly worse during the second half. Small businesses are starting to fail all over the country, a housing crash of potentially epic proportions has started, layoffs are on the rise from coast to coast and economic activity is really slowing down all around us. So if you think that things are bad now, just wait, because they will soon be a whole lot more painful.
In recent days we have gotten more new numbers which seem to confirm that a major economic slowdown is upon us. The following are 14 signs that the U.S. economy is poised to crash really hard during the second half of 2022…
#1 One survey that was just released discovered that 35 percent of all small business owners in the U.S. “could not pay their rent in full or on time in June”.
#2 A different survey found that 51 percent of all small businesses owners in the U.S. believe that rising prices could “force them to close their businesses within the next six months”.
#3 It is being reported that 45 percent of all small businesses in the U.S. have already decided to freeze the hiring of new workers.
#4 Sales of previously owned homes dropped 5.4 percent during the month of June. That is now the fifth month in a row that we have seen a decline.
#5 In three-fourths of the metro areas that Redfin tracks, at least 25 percent of home sellers reduced their asking price during the month of June.
#6 Blackstone has prepared a war chest of 50 billion dollars so that it can scoop up depressed real estate all over the country after housing prices have crashed in the months ahead.
#7 The number of Americans applying for jobless benefits has risen to the highest level in eight months.
#8 Employment postings for software development jobs have dropped off by more than 12 percent during the past four weeks.
#9 The Conference Board’s index of leading economic indicators has now fallen for four months in a row.
#10 The S&P Global Flash U.S. PMI Composite Output Index just went negative for the very first time since the last recession.
#11 The latest number for the Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index came in at -12.3, and that was much worse than what most experts were anticipating. Any reading below zero indicates contraction, and needless to say this reading was way below zero.
#12 Inflation continues to rage out of control even as economic activity in the U.S. significantly slows down. If you can believe it, the average price of a used vehicle in the United States has now risen to a whopping $33,341.
#13 The Atlanta Fed is now projecting that U.S. economic growth for the second quarter will come in at -1.6 percent. If it is ultimately confirmed that the U.S. economy has already been contracting for two quarters in a row, that would mean that we are officially in a recession right now.
#14 Thanks in part to the rapidly tanking economy, Joe Biden’s approval rating has plunged all the way down to 31 percent.
At this point, even the tech giants are extremely concerned about what is coming.
For years, nothing could seem to quash the relentless optimism of the big tech companies, and their stocks soared to absolutely absurd heights.
But now everything has changed as we head into the second half of this year. The following comes from the Washington Post…
Big Tech is bracing for an economic recession and an uncertain future. That, in turn, is triggering more economic angst.
The biggest tech firms, most of whom report quarterly earnings next week, have offered recent hints they are hunkering down. News of layoffs and hiring slowdowns have become commonplace across Silicon Valley. Start-ups are saying capital is drying up. Workers are being put on notice that businesses are changing.
I don’t remember ever seeing such pessimism from Silicon Valley.
Incredibly, even the Biden administration is admitting that the economy is slowing down, but Janet Yellen insists that what we are witnessing is quite “appropriate” for a “healthy economy”…
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen acknowledged Sunday that the U.S. is experiencing an economic “slowdown” but downplayed the potential for a recession, arguing that the country is in a period of “transition” following rapid economic growth.
“The economy is slowing down,” Yellen said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” adding that a correction is “appropriate” for a healthy economy.
You can believe her if you want.
But she also told us that inflation would be “transitory”, and we can all see how that prediction turned out.
Even though we are still only in the early stages of this new recession, lines are already getting really long at food banks all over the nation. The cost of living continues to soar to unprecedented heights, and this is hitting the poor harder than anyone.
In the months ahead, we should expect to see a tsunami of layoffs, stunning declines in housing prices, hordes of small businesses going under and a tremendous spike in the number of bankruptcies.
Needless to say, all of this will not be good for the financial markets either.
The stage is clearly set for the sort of historic economic meltdown that I have been warning about for a long time, and the pain that our society will experience will be extremely severe.
I hope that you are using this summer to get prepared for the difficult times that are ahead of us.
The remainder of 2022 is not going to be pleasant, and 2023 is going to be even worse.
The Darkness Will Not Last - By Hal Lindsey - https://www.hallindsey.com/ww-7-24-2022/
Stephen Hawking was the most famous scientist of his generation. The author of A Brief History of Time died in 2018. Near the end of his life, he became something of a prophet of doom. In his last years, he pointed out several threats to human civilization and even to human existence. In 2014, he wrote, “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.” In 2015, he said, “Aggression… threatens to destroy us all.”
He was not alone in his concerns. Films, music, books (both fiction and nonfiction), news reports, and even video games are filled with apocalyptic horror. And the answers — especially the fictional ones — are not particularly comforting. In real life, few people expect a superhero to save the day. (A Savior is coming, but He doesn’t wear an S on His chest.)
Some concerns are valid, and some are not. But all of them show that humanity senses its sin and fears coming judgment. They don’t use the word sin, but they talk a lot about the concept. However they express it, they show a growing realization that, as a species and as individuals, we are missing the mark. And some form of judgment must come.
There is an upside to judgment. It means that God is real, and so are His standards. It means the world is not an accident. You are not an accident. He created each one of us with purpose and meaning. We all sense these things to be true, but God gave us more than an intuition. He gave us the Bible. And He verified the Bible’s trustworthiness over and over again.
Hebrews 1:1 (NIV 1984) says, “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways.” The prophets correctly described events that would take place a short time later, or even thousands of years later. Their words focused primarily on the first and second comings of Jesus. They spoke of our time in stunning detail.
They didn’t get these things right because they were good guessers. No one can make that many good guesses. They got it right every time because God spoke through them.
We see an example of the ultimate expression of God’s love in John 3:16 (NKJV). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Yes, we are guilty. We are sinners. We deserve judgment. But, as 1 Peter 2:24 (NASB) explains, “He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross.” In John 14:3, He promised to all who follow Him, “I will come again, and receive you to Myself.”
The news is often bleak. Those who reject Christ are right to feel a sense of impending doom. But followers of Jesus must know that the darkness will not last. The Lord will rapture His people out of this mess. Later, He will return to earth to set up His millennial kingdom. The world will move out of darkness and into light. Jesus promised, and He always keeps His word.
Daily Jot: Government and media colluding to censor free speech - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
Against the backdrop of a federal district court judge allowing a case to move forward citing Joe Biden and other high ranking government officials and media companies with collusion to suppress free speech, the Media Research Council (MRC) has released a study identifying over 144 million instances of censorship by big tech media in just the first quarter of 2022. MRC, a reputable media watchdog, analyzed seven platforms–Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Spotify—to determine the number of times that users on social media had information kept from them, what MRC calls “secondhand censorship.” Social media companies are suspected accomplices in the federal collusion lawsuit.
Missouri and Louisiana filed the collusion suit in US District Court against Government Defendants consisting of Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Jennifer Rene Psaki, Vivek H. Murthy, Xavier Becerra, Department of Health and Human Services, Anthony Fauci, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Alejandro Mayorkas, Department of Homeland Security, Jen Easterly, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and Nina Jankowicz. The suit alleges that “Government Defendants have colluded with and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “disinformation,” “misinformation,” and “malinformation.””
The states provided examples of suppression of free speech, which included: The Hunter Biden laptop story prior to the 2020 Presidential election; Speech about the lab-leak theory of COVID-19’s origin; Speech about the efficiency of masks and COVID-19 lockdowns; and Speech about election integrity and the security of voting by mail. In addition the State’s complaint, “sets forth actions by specific Government Defendants that have been taken to suppress free speech. Plaintiff States allege that free speech is the bedrock of American liberty, and Government Defendants are in violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in attempting to suppress free speech by labeling the speech as “misinformation.””
In allowing the case to go forward, Judge Terry A. Doughty reviewed previous unsuccessful cases that were blocked because of the technicality of “lack of standing” and concluded: “If Missouri and Louisiana do not have standing under the facts alleged, when would anyone ever have standing to address these claims? In conclusion, the Court finds that the Plaintiff States have standing and that this Court has the judicial power to hear this case.” It’s interesting that the MRC study used many of the same examples of censorship in its analysis as are listed in the Missouri and Louisiana lawsuit. Free speech is central to Christianity. The Apostle Paul prayed in Ephesians 6:20 that he “may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” These studies and court tests ultimately are essential to Constitutional protection of religious free speech.
Daily Devotion: Build on Bedrock - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock —Matthew 7:24
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/build-on-bedrock/ - Listen
Surfers know when they “go over the falls” and don’t know which way is up, their surfboard always will float to the top. If they have a leash on their ankle that’s attached to their board, they can follow it to the surface.
In the same way, the Word of God pulls us to the surface, where we can fix our eyes on Jesus and get ourselves back into alignment with God. I can think of so many times in my life when my mind was going in the wrong direction, and I found that simply quoting Scripture righted me.
At the end of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gave this summary: “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock” (Matthew 7:24–25 NLT).
Then Jesus went on to say, “But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash” (verses 26–27 NLT).
We all will face storms in life as followers of Jesus. So make sure you build on the right foundation of a relationship with Jesus and God’s Word. Don’t build your faith on experience or fickle emotions.
How important is the Word of God in our lives? Success or failure in the Christian life depends on how much of God’s Word you get into your life on a regular basis and how obedient you are to it.
The Word of God restores us. It refreshes us. It transforms us. Build your life as a Christian on Christ and His Word.

"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

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
