The Great Reset (Part 1) - By Pete Garcia -
"The 2020 U.S. election will determine the fate of the whole world." 1 ~ George Soros
It has been 160 years since our last Civil War.
It has been 81 years since the start of the last World War.
Either way, we are long overdue for one or the other.
Both of these great tragedies acted as a reset of sorts.
The Civil War reset us from these United States, to the United States; while World Wars I and II, reset (terraformed) the global stage from nationalism, to globalism.
In fact, the main thing that held back globalism during the 20th-century wasn't Islam or even Communism, but the American Constitution. These documents (the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution) were in my opinion, so divinely inspired that they prophetically laid out a system of governance designed to both prevent too much government, as well, as preventing us from ever subjugating ourselves to an international body-politic. Political power was too diversified amongst the branches of government. The closest we came to losing this wasn't during the Civil War, but rather, during the time between the Great Depression and the end of World War II.
Can there be any doubt as to why God allowed the US to emerge victorious after both conflicts?
It wasn't because God loved the Americans more than he did anyone else. It was to prevent this New World Order (NWO) from becoming too quickly. The NWO was, with the death of W. Wilson, stillborn at birth, with the League of Nations. However, with the Second World War, the powers were determined to bring all the world together Vis the United Nations. And it sort of worked, except, the United States could/would not subjugate itself to it. Fast forward 70 plus years and I feel we are now at the end of that time of divine restraint, which is why I keep getting this haunting sensation that we are quickly heading for another reset.
But don't take my word for it, just turn on the news and see how unhinged the world has become, let alone, the world's lone-superpower, the United States. We are currently a two-party political system, with one side, the Democrats, openly advocating for national suicide. Nay, demanding it. The Republicans conservatives, are really, the only ones left trying to hold it all together.
Now, that is not to say, we haven't had our issues in the past, because we have. But, we've always managed to find a middle-ground to rise up and let cooler heads prevail. However, those days are dead and gone and the gloves are completely off. No more pretending. No more fence-sitting. No more moderate-middles. The left has pushed their agenda so far to the political left, all they have left to embrace is outright wickedness. To anyone who still has a conscience, this is shocking. It is shocking to our senses and sensibilities that one party would applaud and cheer for the dismembering of unborn babies. It's shocking that one party would applaud and cheer for men pretending to be women, and vice versa. It's that they would champion anarchy and violence, so long as it's done in the name of social justice.
But here we are in 2020. Generational insanity has swept the nation.
What's worse, is that corporate and academic America, is now standing with the insane.
To stand against them and speak your mind, means standing against a tsunami of political, corporate, economic, judicial onslaught, as well as the mob of public opinion. You're almost guaranteed to lose your job, lose your livelihood, and possibly even face jail time for disobeying the growing pockets of lawless governments. And to stand with them, surely means your approval of the demise of the United States, as well as abandoning the Judeo-Christian principles and the God of the Bible.
Which has me thinking a lot about the upcoming 2020 elections. These elections seem to weigh a lot on people's minds these days, especially, as it were, George Soros. Which is why he's poured billions of dollars, euros, pounds, rubles, yen, yuan, and pesos into defeating Donald J. Trump.
Because if you objectively look at the insanity in the world today, you'd realize, we did not arrive here in a vacuum. There have been forces at play for more than a century now, who have been busily plotting, and planning the demise of the biggest obstacle to world government, the United States. They know, that once she falls, the rest of the western world will fall in line with a newly empowered global system rather quickly, except with some odd-men-outliers (e.g., China, Russia, and Iran-more on this at the end). Nevertheless, large portions of Africa, the America's, Europe, and parts of Asia will line up behind this new, globalist powerhouse. Which begs the question...what's the present hold up?
Will we get another four-years of reprieve under Trump?
Or will we be handed over to the sudden destruction that will surely come at the hands of a Democrat president?
Only God knows the definitive answer to that question- however, I have a few thoughts.
The New World Order?
"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control. ... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." 2 - US Congressman Larry P. McDonald
"For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure-one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it." 3 ~ David Rockefeller, (Memoirs, p. 406)
The "New World Order" is an often maligned and misused phrase that most often centers on the idea of the creation of a singular, all-powerful, global government, presumably controlled by a small group of elites. It is also a phrase that is oft-mocked and lauded as a conspiracy-fringe idea that deserves the utmost derision.
But does it?
In truth, a "new world order" happens quite regularly. Anytime the global power shifts from one nation or empire to another, there is in a sense, a new world order. However, the phrase in question here is the idea of a singular, all-powerful, global government. If this had originated from a bunch of loser-nobodies hanging out in their parent's basement, it should be mocked. Sadly, that is not the case. The idea of new world order, aside from being plastered to our national currency, has remained the buzz amongst the world's political, economic, and military elite for centuries. This is not some passing fad or work of science fiction, but a real thing, whether we accept it or not.
In other words, this idea of a new world order is a serious one and is originating from the highest echelons of power amongst the leaders of this world. Considering many of these men and women have all the wealth and resources, and are seemingly, well on their way to making it happen; thus, it must be taken seriously. However, the news of it, or rather, the lack of news of it, has never diminished the intrepid march towards this goal.
"The loss of public interest, however, did not mean the end of world order aspirations. Quite the opposite; the "big idea" of world organization remained active within elite circles, largely operating beyond the knowledge or concern of the public. A corollary was this: As public memory fogged with the advance of time, the notion of world government - once openly identified and celebrated - faded into our cultural background, eventually slipping into the realm of "conspiracy theory." 4 ~Carl Teichrib
But as history has borne out, taking the world from nationalism to globalism, is not so easy a task. It took the Great War to create the League of Nations. It took the Second World War to create both the United Nations and the European Union. Those globalist-types, know, that so long as the United States remains the leader of the free world, there will be no true "new world order."
This should explain by what method we have arrived at the lunacy of 2020. It has been a century-long, concerted effort to a) dumb down the population, b) get America's youth to both hate our past and our present, c) take control over the major institutions that control the flow of information, and d) completely take over our two major political parties.
January 23, 2020
Liberal billionaire George Soros said Thursday that the U.S. economy could be headed for calamity as a result of President Donald Trump's efforts to juice American business and stock prices ahead of the 2020 election.
"Trump's economic team has managed to overheat an already buoyant economy," Soros warned his guests at an informal dinner at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
"The stock market, already celebrating Trump's military success, is breaking out to reach new heights," he said. "But an overheated economy can't be kept boiling for too long. If all this had happened closer to the elections, it would have assured his reelection." 5
Notice how Soros here states this last sentence in the past-tense? As if Trump's defeat is already a foregone conclusion? Mind you, this was also around the same time that the Chinese Coronavirus was making its way to the United States.
It's often hard to wrap our minds around the idea that our reality, is not just happening in the natural order of things, but rather, is being intentionally and artificially shaped to fit some agenda. Like the assassinations of Lincoln, Kennedy, and King, as well as the wars of Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, events are happening that are attempting to hijack our natural trajectory. These are human-driven events that are attempting to impose some will over where the world is headed.
Granted, we expect God to do this because He is the final arbiter of human history. However, there are things happening that are not of God. Events are being shaped by men and women under the influence of dark, spiritual forces, who are actively seeking the demise of the United States and to impose Satan's original world order. (See Nimrod and the Tower of Babel- Gen 10-11)
Now, some of you are saying...wait a minute Pete, didn't you just write an article last week where you all but spell out the divinely inspired demise of the United States?
Yes I did.
Let me clarify this seemingly juxtaposed, position. Men may shape the present events, but they cannot control the outcome. God alone reserves that authority. Mankind is very much become the tempest in the teapot, furious, but over-exaggerated. God has the ultimate say on what and when things happen. (Read Psalm 2 for more clarity on this)
Nevertheless, we know that according to Scripture that there is no nation like the United States mentioned in the last days. The final world superpower will come out of the boundaries of the old Roman Empire (Daniel 2, 7-9). Ergo, something must happen to us between now and then that knocks us down a whole bunch of pegs. Sadly, our demise is as inevitable, as the setting of the sun after a long day. We cannot prevent it, nor can we slow its approach.
So if our demise is inevitable, who cares which party wins the next election?
Well, primarily, because we don't know when the Lord will return.
If the Lord tarries another 10-20 years, should we suffer unnecessarily under the totalitarian machinations of the Democrat-Socialist party? A party which lauds abortion on demand, genderless children, emasculated men, invites war and attacks, and promotes the general lawlessness of anarchy on every street?
Or should we occupy until He comes as our Lord instructs in Luke 19:13?
We are to be the salt and light until He returns. Furthermore, as history has borne out, it is much easier to share the gospel when you are free than when you are under a totalitarian dictatorship. One could argue that truer converts are made during persecution, and that may be true, but each of us here today, reading this, were at one point, converted. Is our conversion any less valid because we did it without duress? Can Christ still redeem the freedman? (Gal. 3:28)
Even though the public opinion or awareness has waxed and waned over the past hundred years, the plan has never wavered from the globalist mind. They are continually chipping away at the US so when it gets within range of a tipping point, they can simply nudge it with a crisis. Looking back, we can see the numerous attempts to unify globalist efforts by way of crisis, creating new, major, political bodies:
1920- The League of Nations (Woodrow Wilson)
1921- Council on Foreign Relations (Rockefeller since 1930)
1945- The United Nations
1954- The Bilderberg Group
1968- The Club of Rome (Rockefeller)
1973- The Trilateral Commission (Rockefeller)
Although these are the best known, there are literally hundreds of American and European organizations dedicated to a singular global system. Powerful esoteric groups have also long been involved in consolidating power into the hands of an elite few:
Below are listed some quotes from some of the most powerful men in the world and how they see globalism.
"In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all." (US Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbot, July 20 l992.)
"The New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down ... run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault." (Richard Gardner, US Council on Foreign Relations Journal Foreign Affairs, April 1974.)
"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order." (US billionaire David Rockefeller, to UN Business Conference, 1991.)
"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government." (US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.)
"To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogmas." (Brock Adams, Director of UN Health Organization.)
"We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest."
(US banker, financial advisor to President Roosevelt, and Council on Foreign Relations member, James Warburg to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, February 17 l950, as testified at the US Senate.)
There are literally, hundreds of quotes, from many, many men advocating for a singular world government. The main difference today (as opposed to decades ago) is that the new, technocracy (powerful technological corporations) such as Google, Huawei, Apple, Twitter, IBM, and so forth, are piling onboard the globalist bandwagon as well.
They're piling onboard because of how interconnected the world's economy has become in the age of information. There are hundreds of powerful, technological corporations that are involved in thousands of technological efforts: data processing, artificial intelligence, unmanned autonomous systems, 5G networks, low-earth orbit satellites, Internet-of-Things, cloud computing, digital currency, crypto-currency, gene-editing, 3D printing, holographic technology, etc. Although many of these products and systems were designed to makes our life here in the 21st century better, safer, and streamlined, these also have the potential for great and terrible abuse in the wrong hands. And according to Scripture, if we can be so bold as to read between the lines, they will be.
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. Revelation 13:16-18

Is The Stunning Israel Peace Deal A Prelude To Fulfilled Prophecy? - Michael Snyder -
Last week's surprise announcement of a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates caught just about everyone by surprise. I hadn't heard anything about a potential deal in the works, and the mainstream media in the western world was completely blindsided by the deal. But this has become Israel's pattern in recent decades.
The Oslo Accords, Israel's peace deal with Jordan and other agreements were negotiated under a cloak of total secrecy because officials didn't want public sentiment to potentially destroy negotiations. And there could potentially be other "peace deals" in the works right now that we don't know anything about.
President Trump is touting this as a major diplomatic victory, and he is hoping that it will sway some votes in November. At this juncture, Trump is trailing badly in most polls and he needs another miracle like we witnessed in 2016.
But it was really Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that was the driving force behind this deal. He has been seeking to build relations with the UAE for many, many years, and this deal is the culmination of those efforts.
In order to get this deal, however, Netanyahu had to agree not to annex any land in the West Bank...
The United Arab Emirates has normalized relations with Israel in a historic US-brokered deal that "suspends" Israeli annexation of occupied land sought by the Palestinians for their future state.
The surprise agreement, initially announced by the US president, Donald Trump, makes the UAE the first Gulf country and only the third Arab nation in the world to have active diplomatic ties with Israel, joining Egypt and Jordan.
This is a very odd development, because to many people it seemed like Netanyahu was dead set on annexing portions of Judea and Samaria.
In fact, he specifically promised to do so during the last election.
Could it be possible that all of that rhetoric was just a negotiating ploy?
If Israel had really gone ahead and annexed those lands, it would have killed any international efforts to create a Palestinian state.
But now that annexation is completely dead, the potential for a "peace deal" that would create a Palestinian state is very much alive.
According to the New York Times, the relationship between Israel and the UAE "had been building quietly for years", and according to a British news source this peace agreement will also open a door for "deals on direct flights, security, telecommunications, energy, tourism and healthcare"...
A joint statement from the US, the UAE and Israel said delegations will meet in the coming weeks to sign deals on direct flights, security, telecommunications, energy, tourism and healthcare.
They are expected soon to exchange ambassadors and embassies and a signing ceremony is due to be held at the White House.
Ultimately, peace in the Middle East is something that we should all want, but at what cost has it been achieved?
It appears that West Bank annexation will never happen now, and we are being told that Netanyahu "traded it away" for a goal that was even more important to him...
In an ironic twist, that plan became the catalyst that finally gave Mr. Netanyahu the opening he had long sought. With pressure building for him to drop the annexation plan, he traded it away for something he wanted even more.
This may help Netanyahu win some moderate votes in the next election, but there are many conservatives in Israel that feel like they have been played and are not happy with Netanyahu right now at all.
Of course Netanyahu is not going to stop with the UAE. According to Reuters, Bahrain and Oman could also soon normalize relations with Israel...
Bahrain and Oman could be the next Gulf countries to follow the United Arab Emirates in formalising ties with Israel, Israel's intelligence minister said on Sunday.
In fact, Netanyahu has actually publicly admitted that he has been speaking with the leaders of Oman and "other countries" in the region...
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Fox News on Sunday that he has been speaking with leaders from Arab countries in addition to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) following the American-mediated peace deal announced last week between the two countries.
He stated that he spoke with political leaders in Oman and "other countries," and that the key to such discussions is discretion.
In the end, many believe that all of this diplomacy is all about Iran.
In recent years, Netanyahu has relentlessly been attempting to unite as much of the Middle East as possible against Iran. The Israelis believe that a conflict with Iran is probably inevitable, and so they would like to isolate the Iranians as much as they can.
Of course many Sunni governments in the region have long been hostile toward the radical Shiite regime in Tehran. In particular, the Saudis would love to see the Iranian "problem" go away, and so they have a strategic interest in working with Israel toward that goal.
As Israel and the various Sunni governments across the Middle East become increasingly cozy, could this create an environment that will eventually lead to an agreement to create a Palestinian state?
I think that this is a very important question to ask at this point.
Needless to say, most of the rest of the world would greatly rejoice if a peace agreement could be reached that would finally create a Palestinian state, but formally dividing the land of Israel would set the stage for coming against God Himself.
Many had assumed that a conservative like Netanyahu would never be willing to give up land for an agreement that would guarantee "lasting peace", but the agreement that he just reached with the UAE may suggest otherwise.
If Netanyahu is willing to permanently sacrifice dreams of annexing portions of Judea and Samaria for a peace agreement with the UAE, what would he be willing to do for a comprehensive peace agreement with all of the Sunni governments in the region?
Peace can be a very seductive mistress, and I have a feeling that we are about to see things happen in the Middle East that many thought would never be possible.
Many Bible Prophecy experts have been watching for the emergence of an agreement/covenant between Israel and "many" for a period of seven years. This prophetic event is found in Daniel 9:27. The signing of such an agreement will introduce the final 7 year period laid out in Daniel's 70 Weeks prophecy which is often called the Tribulation period.
It is during this period that the majority of the events of the book of Revelation are fulfilled. Of particular importance in this 7 year timeline is what is often called the "abomination of desolation" which involves the Antichrist desecrating the rebuilt Jewish temple 3.5 years after this agreement is signed, stopping the sacrifices.
People have begun to wonder if this new agreement with the UAE will play a role in the fulfillment of this prophecy. It is possible but at this point it is far from fulfilling the many requirements of Daniel's prophecy. Here is a breakdown of what Daniel 9:27 describes vs what we see happening today:
1. Israel's agreement with "many". - At this point it is only the UAE however there is speculation that Bahrain, Oman, Morocco and Saudi Arabia may all be future participants. If expanded to other nations it would meet the requirement of the "many".
2. It is a treaty that will be "confirmed", suggesting the guaranteeing or ratifying of an existing treaty. This treaty may possibly set the stage for an initial agreement that is later confirmed or guaranteed by an outside party (The Antichrist).
3. "He" - who is the "he" that confirms this treaty and breaks it 3.5 years later by desecrating the Jewish temple? The Bible describes him as "the Beast" in Revelation 13 - or Antichrist as he is commonly called and he is to be the leader of a 10 king/10 nation confederacy. There is no current world leader who heads up a 10 nation confederacy or meets the other requirements described of the Antichrist.
4. "seven years" - The treaty in Daniel is described as being for a period of one seven or seven years. This treaty doesn't meet that requirement in it's current form. Most treaties signed these days are for an indeterminate time - meant to be long lasting. It seems unlikely that any new agreement would be only for 7 years. Why this treaty in Daniel would be for 7 years remains a mystery.
5. "abomination of desolation" - in order to desecrate the temple and stop the sacrifice 3.5 years after the agreement - you have to have a temple built in the first place. There are significant developments to help bring about the restoration of the temple and include everything from training Temple priests and creating temple instruments - to the hope that qualifying red heifers have been found as we included in today's newsletter. Will efforts to rebuild the Jewish temple be part of a future peace agreement? It seems unlikely in the near future so this remains a major hurdle.
A more likely scenario. The War of Pslam 83 & Ezekiel 38 - then Daniel 9:27 peace.
This agreement with the UAE is likely first step to peace with the gulf nations including Saudi Arabia. All of these nations live in fear of Iran and Israel could be their most strategic ally to counter Iran's aggression. Ezekiel 38 describes an invading force that comes against against Israel led by Iran, Russia, Libya, Turkey and others that result in a verbal protest by "Sheba & Dedan" - the current day areas of Saudi Arabia and the gulf states.
Note it is only a verbal protest as these nations are not strong enough militarily to take on Iran let alone any other invading nations. Why does the Bible even bother to mention their protest? It could very well be to signify this new direction by some Arab states to make peace with Israel.
Those nations who are part of the Ezekiel 38 coalition are destroyed. Another conflict is described in Psalm 83 which has many of Israel's neighbors not involved Ezekiel 38 also coming against Israel in another war that results in their defeat. After the defeat of so many nations who come against Israel it would not be surprising to see a larger peace treaty that involves a limited time (7 years) and the restoration of the Jewish temple - as the Arab world would no longer be strong enough to oppose it.
The world would demand of course that an agreement be ratified/guaranteed by an outside power - such as the leader of this new 10 nation alliance (yet to be seen on the world stage).
Ultimately these are speculations to how things might play out but God's ways are not our ways and we can't put God in a box of newspaper headlines. However we need to be aware of what the Bible says will happen in the last days and while the details as to how we get there may be foggy - God will be faithful to fulfill them.
Nearing Midnight: Savior's Signals! - Terry James -
Every word in the Bible is true-and from God the Holy Spirit. Even when the great apostle Paul says that it is he, not the Lord, saying something, if it's in the Bible, it is absolute truth and put there by God Himself.
Every one of God's prophets are to be given 100 percent attention. Their words were given by the Creator to all of humanity to heed, without exception. How much more important, then, are the words of Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Godhead, when He foretells the future?
Signals of prophetic import flashing with every so-called breaking news item today inundate our senses. Video and spoken reports fill our eyes and ears with the message that the end of the age is drawing to a close. Jesus' own words of prophecy for this late hour of human history are in our headlines-thus this article's title, "Savior's Signals!".
Lately it seems to me that prophetic signals directly from Jesus fill the news. I would like for us to look at a few of these.
To begin, we'll consider the scriptural passages that most prominently feature Christ's words about the end of the age. It's a familiar portion recorded as part of the Olivet Discourse.
From the book of Luke, we first look at Jesus' answers to His disciples' questions about signs for His Second Coming.
Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:10-11)
Jesus framed all of His Olivet Discourse teaching about things to come by saying the signals will be like birth pangs the closer to the end of the age mankind's history gets. These signals will increase in frequency and intensity just before He comes back to the earth to put an end to this wicked system that is hopelessly corrupt and rebellious.
The most significant signal in this regard at this moment is wrapped in the term "pestilence."
I don't have to remind you of this fact. The COVID-19 pandemic is all we've heard about since early this year.
The disease has completely disrupted life not just in America, but around the world. There have been many pestilences throughout the centuries, but none has been as disruptive to all peoples of earth at the same time as the coronavirus.
Compared to recent flu epidemics, it is not as deadly in terms of the number of deaths as counted against the total number of cases. Yet COVID-19 has brought changes and immense fear to the nation and the world at levels never seen in history. This, I believe, makes the current pandemic a signal of pestilence in the end of the age like that prophesied by the Lord.
I believe this to be particularly the case because of all the other such signals converging simultaneously, indicating this to be the time of birth pangs for the wind-up of the age.
Seas and Waves Roaring
We look at the next signal Jesus gave for the end of the age that is prominent in current news. It is found a bit farther along in the Luke account of the Olivet Discourse. Here, the Lord repeats for emphasis part of His earlier words:
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring. (Luke 21:25)
Here, Jesus puts together-side by side-two things that leap from our headlines hourly. Specifically, nations with perplexity and the sea and the waves roaring.
Never in my memory, nor I think in history, has there been the simultaneous convergence of these things on a global basis. Most every part of the world is now in some sort of crisis.
In our America, we are suffering through the pandemic, financial meltdown, riots and anarchy, and political differences, with irrationality at its core that pits race against race and ideology against ideology. The seas of humanity are roaring across the globe. We are all too familiar with the burning of major cities, murders, and lawlessness that wants to do away with all rule of law.
We see the same rioting and roaring of humanity in places like Beirut, Lebanon, where the people have witnessed hundreds dead, with anger over government not being able to protect against violence and being nonresponsive to the carnage suffered by the multitudes. The pattern is the same in many places in Europe and beyond. Jesus' words should be resounding in the spiritual senses of every Christian. His return to put an end to the satanically inspired evil is on the brink.
Hatred for Christ
The veracity of the third signal Jesus gave that shows exactly how near the end of this age we must be is made manifest in our news. The Lord said:
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. (John 15: 18-20)
One stunning item that brought home the hatred for Jesus Christ is a stark reminder of just where this generation is in its absolute rebellion against Heaven. This excerpt about a professor at a public university needs no further comment to make the point.
Timothy Snediker, a PhD student in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Santa Barbara California, made a deeply disturbing Twitter post last week. Andrew Trask queried, "If you were dropped 2000 years back in time with nothing but the knowledge you have now-what would you do?" Snediker replied, "Easy. I would find and assassinate Jesus of Nazareth."
He added, "Theologically speaking, it would be really important to get him before his calling and ministry begins, so that gives me roughly a decade to make it to Palestine, locate the man and make my move."...
It is interesting to note that the Religious Studies Department is a strong supporter of Black Lives Matter and the move to defund the police.
"The Department of Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara stands in support of the protests for racial justice and police reform. Black lives matter."
"We commonly hear that 'The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic'," the department statement reads. "This sentiment echoes in the national response to the current health crisis, where thousands and thousands have died and continue to die daily...
Apparently the department's concern for life does not extend to Jews living in Judea, no matter what the era. ("Religious Studies Professor Tweets Plan to Go Back In Time to Kill Jesus," by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz , Breaking Israel News, Latest News)
There can be no doubt that our Savior has given those who will observe the times through the prism of Bible prophecy signals of just how near the Tribulation is. That means He must be at the doors of Heaven getting ready to call His saints of this Age of Grace to Himself. Here is what He tells us of this generation of believers:
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is...Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. (Mark 13:32-33; 35-37)
Rabbi Inspects Red Heifer in Secret Location in Israel for use in 3rd Temple - www.breakingisraelnews.com
This is the ritual law that Hashem has commanded: Instruct B'nei Yisrael to bring you a red cow without blemish, in which there is no defect and on which no yoke has been laid. Numbers 19:2 (The Israel BibleTM)
Rabbi Azaria Ariel, traveled to an undisclosed ranch in Israel to lead the Temple Institute's efforts to raise a red heifer for the performance of the commandment of producing the purifying ashes of the red heifer. He recently inspected the current red heifer candidates and shared their status.
One of the two more mature candidates is still very viable, even though it has a few hairs which aren't sufficiently red, as required by halacha (Jewish law).
Two new candidates were born in the early months of 2020, and they are currently viable. The ordinance of the red heifer is described in the Bible:
This is the ritual law that Hashem has commanded: Instruct B'nei Yisrael to bring you a red cow without blemish, in which there is no defect and on which no yoke has been laid. (Numbers 19:2)
The purifying power of the ashes of the red heifer posses the ability to overcome the spiritual impurity contracted via physical contact with a corpse or cadaver, known in Hebrew as טמא מת - tamei met. The renewal of the ashes of the red heifer would enable kohanim (Temple priests) today to achieve the highest level of spiritual purity, allowing them to resume their work in the Holy Temple.
This would eliminate one more stumbling block on the way to rebuilding the Holy Temple and renewing the Divine service. Rabbi Azaria also mentions just a few of the many other commandments whose performance will be enabled by or enhanced by the resumption of the ashes of the red heifer. Following are Rabbi Azaria's words translated into English. The video is subtitled in English: "We are hoping, with G-d's help, to raise a kosher red heifer, with the intention of fulfilling the commandment of creating the ashes of the red heifer, and thus enabling all of Israel to be purified from the impurity of tame met, and thereby be able to perform many commandments that required spiritual purity, such as trumot and ma'aserot (tithes), and many commandments whose proper performance are reliant on the purifying power of the ashes of the red heifer. In the meantime, we are standing next to a red heifer candidate whose status is somewhat uncertain. She bears a patch of hair that is not currently sufficiently red, but there is a very real possibility that these hairs will redden before too long. And then we will return and check her again, with the hope that she will at that time be kosher for the performance of the commandment of the red heifer."

Daily Jot: Couldn't watch it - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com
'Couldn't bring myself to watch the virtual Democratic National Party convention last night. 'Won't watch it again tonight. I knew already what it was about: negativity and insults. The former first lady takes the camera and repeats her same old hypocritical mantra from the last campaign: "Going high is the only thing that works. Because when we go low, when we use those same tactics of degrading and dehumanizing others, we just become part of the ugly noise that's drowning out everything else." Then she blistered the current president and Americans using examples we have seen from her own party's actions. Does she think no one sees that she is claiming the high ground, but is dehumanizing others in the process?
Deadline.com pretty much summed up the evening: With a constant chorus decrying Donald Trump's corruption and incompetence in this era of racial divide, the fatal coronavirus crisis, and consequential economic collapse, the Biden team put their focus grouped playbook into practice tonight... If there was one noticeably out of tune note tonight, it was from Biden himself. In a moment seemingly directed to Trump's hardcore base, who will never vote for him anyway, the ex-Veep took a middle ground on police brutality and systemic racism that many of his own supporters and many Americans have abandoned in recent months."
The one thing that stands out is how the democrats are attacking the President for the economy. Michele O said that the economy is in a shambles because of the poor handling of COVID 19. In reality, the President handled/is handling the COVID 19 crisis without the help of all those "smart" democrats that bring all the criticism, but absolutely no solutions. And every time the President wants to open up the country for business, it is democrat congressmen, governors, and mayors who fight any kind of reopening. My sources say that these democrats are intentionally trying to hold the economy down until after the election because they think Americans will vote Trump out of office if the economy is bad enough.
What I see in the Democratic Convention reports is just a continuation of the badmouthing that we have seen since before Trump took office. They just run people down and present no viable solutions. Sad that they cannot look at America, the challenges, and be professional about offering alternatives. A whole lot of negative rhetoric going on. This is their idea of taking the high road because those Republicans will take the low road. They accuse others of what they themselves do. As Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 1:9, "That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun."

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. -Hebrews 4:15

My friend Randy Alcorn wrote in his book If God Is Good, "Most of us don't give focused thought to evil and suffering until we experience them. This forces us to formulate perspective on the fly, at a time when our thinking is muddled and we're exhausted and consumed by pressing issues."
The point he's making is that we need to think about this before trials come because when they do, we'll have to learn how to trust God. Someone once asked me in an interview whether I've ever had a moment in my life when I had doubts or questions.
I said that yes, as a matter of fact, I did. I don't know whether I'd qualify it as doubt, but it was a very hard time. That time, of course, was when my son died. I asked why. The question wasn't so much why it happened to me, although I have to admit that I asked that.
I was really asking, "Why did it happen to him?" He was 33 years old.
I think sometimes we feel as though we have no faith in God because we question why.
Some pastors won't tell you this, but I'll tell you: there's nothing wrong with asking God why. It's okay. Don't expect an answer, but ask away. If God were to actually answer you and say, "Okay, now I'm going to tell you why. Are you ready for it? Write it down," we probably wouldn't like the answer.
So, you can ask God why. Even Jesus asked, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" (Matthew 27:46 NKJV).
I asked why for a while, but there was no satisfactory answer. So, I'll go back to whom, as in to whom do I turn? The answer, of course, is Jesus Christ, because He's the one who sustains me.

"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
