Passing The Buck - by Bill Perkins - https://compass.org/passing-the-buck/
And he 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, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Rev. 13:16
We recently wrote about the “Missing Link”(1)—that only a small percentage of Holy-Spirit-enlightened Believers fully understand that all that’s going on today was accurately prophesied 2000 to 2600 years ago.
We KNOW we’re living in the last of the last days before Rapture. And even though Rapture’s a “sign-less prophetic event,” signs are given in scripture for Believers to know when we’re getting close.
There was a moment in Jesus’ earthly ministry when He chastised those He was teaching for not paying attention to all the fulfilled prophetic signs going on around them.
And He was also saying to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘A shower is coming,’ and so it turns out. And when you see a south wind blowing, you say, ‘It will be a hot day,’ and it turns out that way. You hypocrites! You know how to analyze the appearance of the earth and the sky, but why do you not analyze this present time?” Luke 12:54-56
So we are crazy if we don’t Biblically analyze what’s going on around us to make smart decisions in every aspect of our lives.
The Truth About Banks
About a year ago we wrote about what major events to keep an eye on (3), one of them being moving toward the Mark of the Beast—the whole world’s money controlled by Satanic forces.
And boy are we moving along at a fast clip! Just like they are doing everything possible to get rid of small businesses, preferring to control a few major suppliers, they’re doing the same with banking.
We have already been told there are only eight banks that will not be allowed to fail.(2)
What this is telling us is that before the Mark of the Beast, they plan to consolidate all banking down to eight banks. That would make it far easier for the government to take over all banking.
This will happen, it’s just a matter of time. We just don’t know how much of this we’ll see prior to our electrifying heavenly departure. Is your bank on that list? Asking for a friend.
But what just happened in Switzerland with the takeover of 167-year-old Credit Suisse Bank should make everyone pay attention. They saved the bank by selling it to UBS, the largest bank in Switzerland. But the devil is in the details.
UBS bought it for $3.2 billion. The Swiss government kicked in a line of credit of $7 billion. But the amazing thing they did to make it work was a “bail-in” of $17 billion in bonds.
A “bail-out” is when someone puts money in to cover the losses. But in this case, no one was willing, or maybe able, to bail out the bank. So they used a “bail-in” by defaulting on $13 billion of bondholders’ money. There is very little coverage of this inconvenient fact in the news.
Several billion dollars of those Credit Suisse bonds were purchased by the governments of Saudi and Qatar who had a lot of excess cash from oil sales in the last couple of years. Their investment just vanished. So much for putting money safely away in a Swiss bank account.
You could make the case the Globalists were penalizing those Middle Eastern nations for lining up with Russia and China’s new monetary system. If they needed cash, that would have seemed to be the most logical sinister option.
But a lot of those bondholders were just like you and me. Individuals who had some or all their retirement funds invested at 3.2% interest. Then they were told their money was simply gone.
That’s amazing. But it’s not without precedent. In 2012, in what now looks like a practice run for the future, Cyprus banks also did a bail-in to save all Cypriot banks.(4)
Up to $100,000 was supposed to be insured. But to make the banks solvent, they decided to “tax” every insured amount 6.5%. So if you had $100,000 in the bank, your balance changed overnight to $93,500.
For those who had over $100,000 in a Cypriot bank account, the tax was higher—10%. So if you had $500,000 in the bank, it changed to $450,000 overnight. Roughly some 70% of all Cypriot uninsured deposits were from foreigners.
This was done by decree and there was no appeal. Just like there is no appeal for the bondholders of Credit Suisse. And do note the “tax” was 100%. When you put money in your bank it’s owned and controlled by the bank. Just saying.
So here we are in the US now being told that there are 186 more small-to-medium banks at risk of closing.(6) There’s no way these troubled banks can be bailed out…the FDIC used up all its reserve cash on the last three bailouts.
So as the banking crisis continues to play out, there is no telling what they will do to save the banking system. All we know for sure is that we’re well on our way to the Mark of the Beast.
Plan accordingly. The Bible gives some practical advice. Our expression “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” comes from this Bible verse:
Divide your portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not know what misfortune may occur on the earth. Eccl. 11:2
Especially since Biden is itching to launch his trackable, traceable central bank digital currency (CBDC).(7) Rumor has it he’s looking at July to implement the U.S. version of a digital currency.
Actually, the USA is late to the game. There are roughly 100 countries that already have digital currencies(8), including China, Ukraine, Sweden, India and European Union.
Most mirrored the successful launch of Nigerian eNaira launched in October, 2021. The eNaira exists via an app alongside Nigeria’s regular Naira currency.
Using the Nigerian eNaira app you can store, send and receive eNaira, assuming the other person or business has the app. However, over 55% of the population of Nigeria doesn’t have a bank account and depends on cash.
But Nigeria pushed on implementing measures that made it hard to use cash. For instance, they removed the legal status of high denomination bills. You don’t think our illustrious government would do such a thing to us, would they?
Hmmmm….well, in 1969 they already got rid of the $10,000, $5000, $1000 and $500 notes to “fight the drug war.” This is interesting in light of the fact our dollar has lost 88% of its value since 1969.
The scary thing about digital currencies is not only that every transaction can be taxed, but that any transaction can be stopped. So whoever controls your eCurrency controls you because they see everything you do.
If the government doesn’t like you for some reason…say they don’t like the fact you’re unva((inated, or because you gave to the wrong political party... they can easily reduce or freeze your digits in a gnat's eyelash.
The e-dollar probably won’t happen overnight. All other countries kept their paper currency in place and brought their e-currency alongside. But we know that’s like the proverbial frog in a slow boil of water.
And there is some push-back from conservatives in Congress. So that may slow it down a little. Again, we know where it ends after the Rapture, we just don't know when the Rapture will happen.
But do realize these trackable, traceable digits cropping up worldwide means we’re a nano-second away from a centralized world e-currency, Biblically referred to as the MOTB that is instituted in the last half of the Tribulation.
Regardless, Satan wants us fearful. God wants us confident that as we see the Tribulation close, His rescue is closer.
For God has not destined us for wrath [in the Tribulation]…therefore encourage and build up one another. 1Th. 5:9a, 11a
I hope you're encouraged by what all is going on...I am!!! Use us, Lord!
The World's Largest CBDC Trial: A Preview Of The Elite's Cashless Vision For You – Nick Giambruno - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5975
The eNaira is Africa's first central bank digital currency (CBDC).
Central bankers, academics, politicians, and an assortment of elites from over 100 countries hoping to launch their own CBDCs have closely followed the eNaira.
They used Nigeria--Africa's largest country by population and size of its economy--as a trial balloon to test their nefarious plans to eliminate cash in North America, Europe, and beyond.
Are you concerned about CBDCs?
Then you should be paying attention to what is happening in Nigeria.
That's because there's an excellent chance your government will reach for the same playbook when they decide to impose CBDCs in your area--which could be soon.
CBDCs enable all sorts of horrible, totalitarian things.
They allow governments to track and control every penny you earn, save, and spend. They are a powerful tool for politicians to confiscate and redistribute wealth as they see fit.
CBDCs will also enable devious social engineering by allowing governments to punish and reward people in ways they previously couldn't.
CBDCs are, without a doubt, an instrument of enslavement. They represent a quantum leap backward in human freedom.
Unfortunately, they're coming soon...
Governments will probably mandate CBDCs as the "solution" when the next real or contrived crisis hits--which is likely not far off.
That's why you must pay attention to what is happening in Nigeria. That way, you can know what to expect and take preventative action.
Here are the top five insights from the eNaira.
Insight #1: Don't Take the Bait... Reject CBDC Incentives
In Nigeria, the government implemented discounts and other incentives to increase the adoption of eNaira.
In North America and Europe, expect the government to require CBDCs to receive welfare payments, a potential universal basic income, so-called "inflation relief checks," or whatever the next cockamamie scheme is.
Think of these incentives like the cheese in a mousetrap.
Insight #2: Simultaneous Moves To Eliminate Cash
To help boost eNaira adoption, the Nigerian government announced a plan to remove the legal tender status of various high denomination bills, rendering them worthless.
According to the World Bank, over 55% of the adult population in Nigeria does not have a bank account and is dependent on physical cash.
The Nigerian government must have known phasing out cash would be a disaster for a majority of the population, but they plowed ahead anyways--so much for democracy.
When your government imposes a CBDC, expect simultaneous measures to force people out of cash, regardless of the costs.
Those measures could come in many flavors, but I would bet they would first look to phase out large denomination bills by removing their legal tender status.
We're already seeing this happen...
For example, the EU has already phased out the 500 euro note.
The $100 bill is the largest in circulation in the US, but that wasn't always the case. At one point, the US had $500, $1,000, $5,000, and even $10,000 bills.
The government eliminated these large bills in 1969 under the pretext of fighting the War on (Some) Drugs.
The $100 bill has been the largest ever since. But it has far less purchasing power than it did in 1969. Decades of rampant money printing have debased the dollar. Today, a $100 note buys less than $12 in 1969.
Even though the Federal Reserve has devalued the dollar by over 88% since 1969, it still refuses to issue notes larger than $100.
With CBDCs on the horizon, I think the US government will not only never issue another bill higher than $100 but will probably look to phase out the $100 bill under various pretexts.
Insight #3: Bank Restrictions
Most people think of the money they deposit into the bank as a personal asset they own.
But that's not true.
Once you deposit money at the bank, it's no longer your property. Instead, it's the bank's, and they can pretty much do whatever they want with it.
What you really own is the bank's promise to pay you back. It's an unsecured liability, which makes you technically and legally a creditor of the bank.
And since the banking system is intertwined with the government everywhere, it's only prudent to expect governments to place more restrictions on bank accounts as CBDCs debut.
This is exactly what happened in Nigeria.
Cash withdrawal limits and debit card transaction restrictions were imposed, among other measures. In addition, capital controls made it challenging to send money out of the country.
I wouldn't be surprised to see the forced conversion of bank deposits into the eNaira--at an unfavorable rate.
Here's the bottom line. Expect all sorts of restrictions--and possible confiscations--to be imposed on bank accounts when a CBDC is released.
Insight #4: Rising Inflation
Amid the eNaira rollout, Nigeria is experiencing some of the highest inflation levels in its history.
This is not surprising. CBDCs make it even easier for the government to debase the currency.
So, it's reasonable to expect more inflation when CBDCs come to town.
Insight #5: Social Unrest
In another predictable development, frustrated Nigerians took to the streets over the government's actions to restrict cash and bank accounts. There was a violent scramble to exchange old notes before the government deemed them worthless. Riots broke out in several locations.
There's an excellent chance the destructive restrictions imposed alongside CBDCs could create social unrest anywhere.
To summarize, here are the top five insights from Nigeria's CBDC experience.
Insight #1: Don't Take the Bait... Reject CBDC Incentives
Insight #2: Simultaneous Moves To Eliminate Cash
Insight #3: Bank Restrictions
Insight #4: Rising Inflation
Insight #5: Social Unrest
As CBDCs come to your neighborhood, you now know what to expect.
Governments will probably mandate CBDCs as the "solution" when the next real or contrived crisis hits - which is likely not far off.
There's an excellent chance more inflation and financial chaos is coming soon.
Are you ready for it?

Are They Actually Trying To Crash The Economy On Purpose? - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/are-they-actually-trying-to-crash-the-economy-on-purpose/
They actually did it. The Federal Reserve just raised interest rates by another 25 basis points right in the middle of a major banking crisis. I honestly do not understand what Fed officials are thinking. They had already blown a 620 billion dollar black hole in the balance sheets of U.S. banks by raising rates so aggressively, and that resulted in the second and third largest bank failures in U.S. history earlier this month. Apparently they are not yet satisfied with the carnage that they have caused, and so they have decided to make things even worse. What we are witnessing is either extreme incompetence of epic proportions, or they are trying to crash the economy on purpose. I am sitting here trying to think of a third alternative, but so far I am coming up blank.
Fed officials can see exactly what their reckless rate hikes are doing to the system, but they are pressing forward anyway. Wednesday’s rate hike was “the ninth consecutive rate increase”…
The Federal Reserve on Wednesday raised its benchmark interest rate by a quarter of a point, forging ahead with its fight against stubborn inflation despite a spate of bank failures and a growing crisis within the financial sector.
The unanimous decision puts the key benchmark federal funds rate at a range of 4.75% to 5%, the highest since 2007, from near zero just one year ago. It marks the ninth consecutive rate increase aimed at combating high inflation.
The fact that it was a “unanimous decision” should greatly alarm all of us.
Isn’t there a single voice of reason left at the Fed?
The last time the Fed raised rates like this was just before the financial crisis of 2008.
And we all remember what that did to our banking system.
But the Fed insists that this time is different. In fact, we were just told that our banking system “is sound and resilient”…
“The U.S. banking system is sound and resilient,” the Fed said. “Recent developments are likely to result in tighter credit conditions for households and businesses and to weigh on economic activity, hiring, and inflation. The extent of these effects is uncertain. The Committee remains highly attentive to inflation risks.”
Of course banks don’t tighten the flow of credit when things are good.
They tighten the flow of credit when they get into trouble.
And it appears that another major U.S. bank is now exhibiting signs of distress…
Shares of regional bank PacWest Bancorp dropped Wednesday after the company disclosed it had shed more than $6 billion in deposits during the recent squeeze on midsized banks, though PacWest said it did not plan to raise more capital.
The bank said in a press release Wednesday that it had $27.1 billion in deposits as of March 20, which is down from $33.9 billion at the end of December and from $33.2 billion on March 9. The change appears to have largely come from venture banking deposits, which accounted for a third of PacWest’s deposits at the end of December and now stand at just 24%.
There are more than 4,000 banks in the United States today, and hundreds of them could end up failing before this crisis is over.
That would mean fewer mortgages for potential homeowners.
That would also mean fewer auto loans, credit cards and debit cards.
Unfortunately, the flow of credit is the lifeblood of our economy, and so we need our banks to be healthy.
But if the Federal Reserve continues to go down this road, bank after bank will be absolutely crushed.
Needless to say, the Fed’s insane policies are also bursting the housing bubble. At this point, U.S. home prices are down 12.3 percent just since last June…
The national median existing-home price fell 0.2% in February from a year earlier to $363,000, the first year-over-year decline since February 2012, the National Association of Realtors said Tuesday. Median prices are down 12.3% from their record $413,800 in June.
U.S. homeowners have already lost trillions of dollars of home equity, and now the Fed has just poured more fuel on the fire.
It is madness.
It is literally insane for the Federal Reserve to aggressively hike rates as we are plunging into a major economic downturn, but that is precisely what they are doing.
Look, if the long-term economic outlook was positive do you think that Walmart would be closing even more stores?…
Walmart has announced plans to close stores in Hawaii and Minnesota, which join a handful of other stores closing in several states this year.
The retail giant said the decision was made after a review process that determined the impacted stores failed to meet financial expectations, the company told USA TODAY.
Ten stores in Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin will close by the end of the year, along with two experimental “pickup” locations in Illinois and Arkansas.
Walmart exists to make money.
If there was a chance that those stores could be turned around, Walmart would not be permanently shutting them down.
Sadly, other major retailers are also closing locations all over the nation.
They can see what is coming.
Higher interest rates are already crushing economic activity from coast to coast, and they are battening down the hatches.
The “experts” at the Fed are assuring all of us that they know exactly what they are doing, but the truth is that they have lost control.
As you read this article, wealthy individuals and large companies are pulling uninsured money out of small and mid-size banks all over America.
Many of those small and mid-size banks will soon be in very serious jeopardy, and that will significantly reduce the flow of credit into our economy.
Is this what they want?
Do they really want to see the U.S. economy implode?
Our leaders continue to make mind-numbingly bad decisions, and we are on a course that leads to national suicide.
When will the American people finally wake up?
Sadly, most Americans are still blindly trusting the “experts”, and the “experts” have us on a highway to extreme misery.
Avoiding Demons - Nathele Graham - firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you like watching scary movies? I don’t. In my opinion, movies have gone way too far in horror, and many other genres. These movies serve a couple of purposes in Satan’s agenda. First, they make evil, and sin, familiar and acceptable. They also can open a way for real demons to enter a person. Are demons real?
I read my Bible and see that Jesus says they’re real, so that means they’re very real. Humans have dabbled in the occult since Adam and Eve were sent out of Paradise. While living in the Garden of Eden and obeying God’s commands, they had protection. Then, an evil entity entered into the Garden. Just like us, Adam and Eve were protected from evil as long as they obeyed God and walked near to Him. God provided for all Adam and Eve’s needs. “And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” Genesis 2:9.
Mankind is rebellious, but God blessed us with free will, and we can choose how we use it. God gave Adam one rule. “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 2:16-17. Adam was entrusted with that truth before Eve was created. That set the standard for men to be the leaders. After Eve was created, Adam may have been enthralled by her beauty and forgot his role as the leader of his family, but Eve decided to chat with Satan. Eve was deceived because of her choice and lack of faith in God’s truth. Was it really Satan, or just a snake?
Taking the whole truth of Scripture into consideration, yes, this was Satan speaking lies. Eve was deceived by Satan twisting God’s word. Doubt was placed in her mind and she began adding to God’s word. God said not to eat the fruit, but Eve added to that saying they weren’t even to touch it. By eating the fruit, God knew that it would become a part of Adam and Eve. Today, when we eat “junk food”, we make that sugar a part of our body, but Satanic deception is more evil and destructive to life than a poor diet. Eve added to God’s word by saying they weren’t even to touch the fruit or else they would die. That’s when Satan knew he could beguile her. “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:4-5. Satan is a liar and Eve’s lack of discernment caused her to listen to this demonic evil, and she ate the fruit. It was tasty and she didn’t drop dead, so she convinced Adam to also eat the fruit. “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.” Genesis 3:7. Attempting to cover sin is always uncomfortable, and fig leaves are very scratchy indeed. The Garden of Eden provided Adam with everything that he needed and there was no death. Sin changed all of that.
Temptation to sin is all around us today. For some reason, sin appeals to all of mankind. God says “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:3. That’s pretty plain, but we put everything ahead of God. Mostly, we put ourselves before God, believing ourselves to be gods. We pamper our own egos, and pride is a downfall to our walk with God. We get angry if we feel someone has dishonored us. Riots happen because one group of people thinks the world owes them everything; pride causes sin. “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18. Solomon had a lot of wisdom and wrote the Proverbs to teach us truth from God. In the New Testament, James tells us “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” James 4:10. Those are wise words. If you are admired and praised by fellow humans, you’re being judged by a faulty measuring tool. If you humbly obey God, He will lift you up. It’s much better to seek the Lord’s favor than human favor.
Sin looks appealing, but it only causes pain and suffering. Satan can make even the ugliest sin look enjoyable. Have you ever seen someone who is drunk? Nowhere in Scripture does God forbid drinking alcohol, but getting drunk is the sin. If drinking wine was a sin, God wouldn’t tell the Israelites they could buy alcohol with their tithe money (Deuteronomy 14:22-26), Jesus would not have turned water into wine at a wedding in Cana (John 2:1-11), Jesus would not have drunk wine Himself if it was a sin, even though the religious leaders condemned Him for it (Luke 7:34). Scripture does caution against being drunk on wine. “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;” Ephesians 5:18. Like Eve added to God’s words, so do many Christian denominations add to God’s words. Drunkenness is the sin. You might look at people who are drinking alcohol, laughing and seeming to have a lot of fun. The fun is only temporary, but the damage to their body can be devastating. Don’t misconstrue what I’m saying. I’m not telling anyone to drink alcohol. I’m just saying that God doesn’t forbid it.
There are many things that God forbids, but we tend to ignore His warning. “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” Deuteronomy 18:10-12. Today, we don’t sacrifice our sons or daughters by passing them through fire, but we condone abortion, which is an act of evil straight from Satan’s lying lips. Do you read your horoscope? Play with a Ouija board? Do you practice Yoga? All of these things are abominations to God and can open the doors for demon possession. The thing you must do immediately is repent of the sin, and ask for God’s forgiveness. Then, don’t continue with the sin.
Why do you think God finds these things to be abominable? Abortion violates one of the Ten Commandments. “Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13. All sin is prompted by Satan and his minions. God loves you, and Satan hates what God loves. When you listen to Satan’s lies you open yourself up to demon possession. Demons are real. Jesus says they are real, and I believe Him. Today there are many people who are treated for mental illness, when in reality they have invited a demon into their life by the use of drugs, drunkenness, and dabbling with the occult. Christians have protection against demon possession because we are filled with the Holy Spirit. We can be oppressed by a demon, but not possessed. Demons can be cast out of a person; it doesn’t take a Catholic priest with magic water and fancy words to do it. It takes a Holy Spirit-filled Christian who understands the power of God. The Christian needs to have studied Scripture about demons, or things can go terribly wrong. Read Acts 19:13-16 to see what happened to some would-be exorcists who thought the name of Jesus was a magic word, but had no faith.
When dealing with demons, it’s important to remember they always look for embodiment. When one is rebuked in the name of Jesus, the door needs to be shut so they won’t return. “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.” Matthew 12:43-45. Jesus spoke those words, and we know we can trust what He says. Jesus knew demons are real, and the Gospels are full of accounts of Him casting out demons.
How can we avoid demons? Walk close to Jesus. Don’t participate in activities which invite a demon to come into you. That means don’t use drugs and don’t get drunk. Too many people think Yoga is a nice stretching exercise, when it is actually a process used to attract demons. The goal of Yoga is to invite in the kundalini spirit, which is a serpent spirit. Eastern mysticism of all kinds encourages releasing this evil spirit. Don’t participate in any meditation where you clear your mind and meditate on emptiness. That leaves your mind wide open to be filled with an evil spirit. When you meditate, be sure you meditate upon Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to fill your thoughts. “I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.” Psalm 119:15. When you keep your thoughts and your heart turned to Jesus and the things of His glory, you won’t leave yourself open to demon possession. You will avoid demons.
We live in a time that demons are manifesting more frequently in UFO sightings, sleep paralysis, and more. The only way to avoid them is to keep close to the Lord. Put on His armor for the spiritual battle we are fighting. “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” Ephesians 6:10-18. Don’t try to fight the battle unarmed. It’s too bad that Eve didn’t have God’s armor on her when Satan came to deceive her.
Many things can open a way for demons to have rights to your life. Books that condone sin, movies that glorify evil, video games that are filled with violence, are just a few. Christians can’t dictate what the world accepts, but we can choose what we accept. When you choose to walk close to God you will avoid demons corrupting your life.
God bless you all,

Daily Jot: Unpacking indictment week - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
Less than a week ago former president Donald Trump sounded the alarm that a New York City Grand Jury would indict him for violating federal law (a felony) by violating a local law (a misdemeanor). The dramatic chess game that has played out since has exposed the lengths the Democratic Party will go to prevent a citizen from running for the office of president, punish political opponents they consider a political threat, and carry on the very same tactics that communist juntas worldwide have employed throughout history. These powers have determined that no matter what Trump does or says, he must be eliminated from the public square. This is political assassination. Trump’s response is genius.
For years, the Democrats have installed corrupt political cronies to twist the law for political gain. No different in this case where Marxist billionaire George Soros bought and paid for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Bragg has convened a Grand Jury and presented “facts” to get an indictment of Trump, hoping to end Trump’s political and public career. The premature exposure of Bragg’s and his Democratic Party bosses’ plans to indict Trump caused a fury of debates and news coverage across the country. Legal experts across the political spectrum have questioned and debated the “legality” of Bragg’s quest. The ensuing public outcry has caused the authorities to build security fences around the court, just like during the Democrat’s impeachment show trials.
The Marxists were caught off guard when Trump blew the whistle. And now the media blames Trump for lying. MSNBC reported Wednesday, “Early Saturday morning, Donald Trump jolted the political world a bit by declaring, by way of his social media platform, that he’d be “arrested” on Tuesday. It wasn’t at all clear why in the world the former president made such a prediction and it was apparently based on his impressions of media accounts. We now know, of course, that the Republican’s projection wasn’t true. If Fox News’ new report is accurate, his prediction was, however, quite lucrative.” MSNBC quotes The Washington Post, which quotes an unnamed source, that Trump raised over $1.5 million since he exposed the Democrat’s indictment plan. Moreover, Trump’s poll numbers surged 14 points, according to a Monmouth Poll.
In summary, somebody illegally leaked a Grand Jury’s plans. Trump blew the whistle. The media jumped on it. The graft and corruption of the Democrats was exposed. The fury of public backlash caused delays and the building of security fences. The Democrats made America look like a communist guerilla republic. Trump raised a ton of money and his poll numbers skyrocketed, making his opponents look even more stupid and corrupt. 2 Timothy 3:13 says, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” Marxists don’t care about any country they run. They just care about redistributing wealth to their own pockets and making everybody poor and controllable. And when they get in power, they will attempt to destroy anybody who gets in the way. The true indictment they seek is on the American people.
Daily Devotion: Countercultural - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people. —Ephesians 5:3

The ancient city of Ephesus was known for its wickedness. The capital of the Roman province of Asia and a busy commercial port, Ephesus was an affluent area. It was also the headquarters for the cult of the goddess Diana.
Thousands of prostitutes in the employ of the Temple of Diana combed the city. They essentially would sell their bodies to draw people to the temple, generate revenue, and promote worship of their false goddess.
Many believers in the church of Ephesus had come out of a very dark background. In their culture, prostitution and immorality were a way of life. Yet some who were professing faith in Christ had returned to their old ways of immorality. And some had never left it to begin with.
Writing to followers of Jesus living in this sex-obsessed culture, the apostle Paul said, “Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people” (Ephesians 5:3 NLT).
Paul was saying, “Stay away from immorality, adultery, and covetousness.”
The parallels to our culture are obvious. It is clear that we, too, are living in a sex-obsessed culture. Yet God is saying to believers, “As My children, as My beloved, as those who bear the family name wherever you go, stay away from immorality.”
I thank God for every Christian man and woman who is standing their ground in this wicked and adulterous generation. I thank God for husbands and wives who are saying, “We are going to remain faithful to each other.” And I thank God for each family that has drawn a line around their home, saying, “It stops here.”
As followers of Jesus Christ, we should not only avoid the very sin of immorality but also avoid anything that would bring us remotely close to it.

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.

"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
