Living in Amazing Times - By Daymond Duck -
First, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is a lobbying group of influential Jews in the U.S.
Among other things, AIPAC encourages members of Congress to support the Two-State solution (an agreement that would divide Israel and Jerusalem).
On Oct. 20, 2019, AIPAC's headquarters in Dallas, TX, was severely damaged by a strong tornado that hit the city.
Some Christians are wondering if this destructive and very rare storm was a message from God because He has warned the world not to divide Israel (Joel 3:2).
Second, the Antichrist will rule over a world government, and the UN has adopted a goal to establish one by 2030.
To bring about a world government by 2030, the U.S. has to be weakened.
I believe globalists in the U.S. shadow government (some call it the Deep State) thought they were well on their way toward meeting the 2030 goal until candidate Trump promised to Make America Great Again, and he made it plain that he will not surrender America's sovereignty to a group of unelected, unaccountable people in the UN, EU, etc.
The Deep State, in cooperation with the Obama Administration and Democrat leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives, decided to Dump Trump, and they have brought impeachment to a fever pitch.
Republican kickback has uncovered many details of the Dump Trump movement, and now it is beginning to drag in Mr. Obama, the Clintons and holdovers from previous administrations.
Although the establishment of a world government by 2030 is questionable, the Bible is very clear that a world government is coming.
Some are asking what is going to happen to the U.S. and Pres. Trump?
I don't know, but it is not likely that anyone (Deep State, Democrats, or Pres. Trump) will give in.
America needs lots of prayer because this could get dangerous.
Third, I heard Pres. Trump say that being Pres. of the U.S. has cost him 2-5 million dollars.
He added that if he had to do it over, he would do it again because what he is doing is helping the people of this nation.
Bucking the Deep State and other globalists in the U.S. is helping the people of this nation, but he is pushing the USMCA and that will hurt us.
He apparently sees the benefits of a trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, but he seems blinded to the fact that the globalists are using trade agreements to create regional blocks of nations that are a prelude to world government.
We should pray that the USMCA never gets off of Nancy Pelosi's desk.
Fourth, I am one of those that fell for the reports that Pres. Trump had abandoned the Kurds.
I now read that he has deployed more troops to Syria to protect some Syrian oil wells, and he plans to sell some of that oil and give the proceeds to the Kurds to guard ISIS captives, assist the Kurds that are helping the U.S. fight ISIS, and to enable the Kurds to buy weapons for their troops.
I have long believed that the Kurds will destroy rebuilt Babylon at the end of the Tribulation Period, and these oil revenues could enable them to strengthen their military and equip them to accomplish that.
Russia, Iran and Turkey quickly opposed Pres. Trump's plan to sell Syrian oil and to give the proceeds to the Kurds.
They probably need to seek a spoil and a prey elsewhere (Israel, Ezek. 38:12).
Incidentally, I am usually reluctant to report something like this, but a highly respected and very influential Christian with ties to Pres. Trump and Israel, Mike Evans, believes Pres. Trump will recognize a Kurdish nation on Iraq's border with Iran sometime between now and Christmas.
That would be a major headache for Iran and a major benefit to the U.S. and Israel.
Fifth, it is being reported that Pres. Trump's withdrawal of 28 troops from Syria has benefited Russia, Iran and Turkey, but most of all, it has left Russia in charge.
Well, that fits right in with what God told the prophet Ezekiel about 2,600 years ago.
Sixth, Pres. Trump has established something called the Faith and Opportunities Initiative to give people of faith a voice on government programs, and he has given Paula White Cain a position on his White House Staff for that purpose.
She is chairperson for a new group called One Voice Prayer Movement that wants people to pray for the U.S. government at noon on the first Tuesday of each month.
More information can be found at the links below.
God is allowing us to live in amazing times, and it is very important for all of us to make our salvation sure through faith in the shed blood of Jesus and, regardless of denomination, to pray for the Church, our loved ones, our nation and the world.

Abbas: No elections without Gaza, Jerusalem; 'martyrs' are not terrorists - By Khaled Abu Toameh -
"I hope they will all rise to the level of responsibility and say yes to elections," the PA president said. "The elections protect our legitimacy and existence and cause."
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that there would be no new Palestinian elections unless they include east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.
In a speech in Ramallah on Monday marking the 15th anniversary of the death of his predecessor, Yasser Arafat, Abbas said that he is planning to first hold new parliamentary and then presidential elections. No date has been set.
"We have decided to go to a parliamentary election, to be followed by a presidential election," Abbas told dozens of Palestinians who gathered at his Ramallah presidential Mukata compound to mark the anniversary of Arafat's death. "These elections should be held in the Gaza Strip and Jerusalem. Otherwise, there will be no elections."
Also on Monday, hundreds of Palestinians marched in Ramallah and other Palestinian cities in the West Bank carrying yellow Fatah flags and posters of Arafat.
In the Gaza Strip, Hamas security forces detained several Palestinians who were planning to hold a rally to commemorate Arafat. Last week, Abbas's Fatah faction accused Hamas of banning all events marking the anniversary of Arafat's death. Palestinians sources in the Gaza Strip, however, said that Hamas allowed followers of former Fatah strongman Mohammed Dahlan, an archrival of Abbas, to hold a number of events in the Gaza Strip on this occasion.
In September, Abbas announced his initiative to hold new elections during a speech before the UN General Assembly.
Since then, the PA and several Palestinian factions, including Hamas and Islamic Jihad, have been holding indirect negotiations in an attempt to reach agreement on the long-overdue elections.
The last presidential election was held in 2005, while the last parliamentary vote took place in 2006.
Despite the indirect negotiations, the PA and the Palestinian factions, particularly those based in the Gaza Strip, have still not reached agreement on Abbas' initiative to hold new elections. Failure to reach agreement means that the elections will not take place in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
In addition, PA officials have expressed fear that Israel would not allow any presidential or parliamentary elections to take place in neighborhoods located within the Jerusalem Municipality boundaries.
Earlier this week, the officials appealed to the EU to intervene with Israel so it would allow the vote to take place in east Jerusalem. The officials also demanded that Israel allow east Jerusalem residents who hold Israeli-issued ID cards to present their candidacy and cast their ballots in the PA elections, when and if they take place.
Abbas expressed hope that Hamas and all the Palestinian factions would positively respond to his initiative to hold the elections. "I hope they will all rise to the level of responsibility and say yes to elections," he said. "The elections protect our legitimacy and existence and cause."
Abbas said he was determined to move ahead with his effort to hold new elections "notwithstanding the circumstances."
The Palestinians, he added, will also continue to work toward fulfilling their dream of "establishing an independent Palestinian state and achieving self-determination and the right of return" for Palestinian refugees and their descendants to their former homes in Israel.
In his speech, Abbas also referred to the controversy surrounding payments made by the PA to Palestinian security prisoners and families of Palestinians killed while carrying out terrorist attacks against Israel.
"Israel says that the martyrs are criminals, terrorists and murderers," Abbas noted. "Israel can get lost. We will never give up our martyrs, they are the most sacred to us. Our martyrs, injured and prisoners are the most sacred to us."
Abbas also referred to US President Donald Trump's yet-to-be-announced plan for Mideast peace, known as the "Deal of the Century."
"They tried to give us the 'slap of the century,' but we slapped them in the face," Abbas said. "We will not give up our cause, no matter what the circumstances. We can't give up the dream of our people. This dream will be fulfilled in the near future."
Israel Watch: Bibi's Nine Lives - Jim Fletcher - Jim1fletcher@yahoo.com
What a weird, weird time in Israeli politics. With lethal threats on every border, the Knesset appears to be unstable, in that two elections cannot separate one candidate from the others for a full mandate as prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu, now in office for a staggering 10 years, is perhaps the "victim" of a media machine so vicious, they make their American counterparts look like Donald Trump's pr machine.
It was reported just last week that Benny Gantz, Bibi's primary challenger for the top job, was given a chance to form a government. The leader of the "Blue and White" party is inexperienced in politics, but that generally doesn't deter former military guys from running.
Now, more fireworks are going off, as Netanyahu has given the Defense Ministry portfolio to younger rival Naftali Bennett, of the New Right. His ally, Ayelet Shaked, is still hanging around too, but the small party didn't do well in the last elections.
What makes the Bennett appointment even more intriguing is the fact that it was being reported that he was flirting with joining a Gantz government. Honestly, I didn't think this was viable, and it turns out, it wasn't. Gantz is willing to bring in Arab parties, and this strikes me as virtual treason. Can you imagine give the "Joint List" access to national security information?
And then we have "kingmaker" Avigdor Liberman making noise about entering a minority coalition with Arab parties (meaning joining forces with Blue and White), if Netanyahu doesn't make the concessions Liberman demands; this is mostly about Liberman's dislike of the ultra Orthodox parties that court Netanyahu.
So we have several career political opportunists playing fast-and-loose with Israel's immediate future. At this moment in time, no leader is better suited to guide Israel than Netanyahu. Anyone to the left of him will be weaker-to-much-weaker, and that is cause for real concern.
Continue to pray for Israel, of course. The Lord is in control. I pray that he thwarts the plans of the wicked in the Holy Land.
Sanhedrin in Final Warning to Iran: Choose Path of King Cyrus Or Die Like Haman - By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz -
"For the sake of My servant Yaakov, Yisrael My chosen one, I call you by name, I hail you by title, though you have not known Me." Isaiah 45:4 (The Israel Bible™)
After much deliberation, the Sanhedrin has issued a declaration calling on Iran to cast off the false-mantle of 'Iran' and return to their Biblically-correct identity as the Persian Empire. If they do not, another, possibly President Trump, will take the role of the "anointed king" designated to lead the effort to build the Temple and unite the nations.
Iran's Nuclear Program Returns
Iran is ramping up its nuclear program, alarming both the U.S. and Israel, the main targets of Iranian ire. This came to a head last week when Iran blocked and then detained at least one International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspector from viewing its nuclear site at the Natanz uranium enrichment site.
This suspicion was verified when Iran's President Hassan Rouhani announced that the Fordow uranium enrichment plant will restart production using 1,044 centrifuges. A day earlier, the head of Iran's nuclear program, Ali Akbar Salehi, announced that enrichment had been substantially accelerated by the activation of 60 of the banned extra-fast centrifuges. Salehi went so far as to thank "the enemy" (editor: it is believed he meant the U.S.) for their advances in the development of nuclear weapons.
"We must thank the enemy for bringing about this opportunity to show the might of the Islamic Republic of Iran, especially in the nuclear industry," he said in an interview last week at the Natanz nuclear enrichment facility.
Salehi announced that two months ago, Iran was producing one pound of uranium daily. Today, he stated, it makes 11 pounds of refined uranium each day. In July, Iran surpassed both the limits on quantity and purity of enriched uranium set by the treaty.
Announcement of the Sanhedrin Tribunal Concerning Iran
Alarmed by these developments, the Sanhedrin sat in judgment and issued an ultimatum to the Iranian government:
Pursuant to the danger of an attack by Iran and pursuing a program that will ultimately result in the development of nuclear weapons with the intent to harm the State of Israel and its allies around the entire world:
Iran's hostility towards Israel is similar to the hatred of the evil Haman which contradicts the rule set by Persian kings from the founding days of the Persian Empire to the time of Sheikh Riza Pahlavi, last heir apparent to the Persian Empire who was deposed in 1974. The current Iranian regime has no purpose other than hatred of the world. Iran will, therefore, be wiped off the face of the earth if it does not immediately respond to this call to cancel all its war plans. This must be done to the satisfaction of Israel, the nations of the region, and all the other world powers affected by this program of aggression.
Iran's actions are in stark contrast to the great King Cyrus of Persia who ended seventy years of exile that began with the destruction of the First Temple. King Cyrus commanded the Jews exiled in Babylonia to return to Eretz Yisrael and rebuild the temple. King Cyrus aided in the restoration of the Temple by providing the tools to restore the temple and begin the Temple service. Cyrus is the "Anointed King" that is mentioned in the prophecies of Isaiah one hundred and fifty years before his reign.
Thus said Hashem to Cyrus, His anointed one- Whose right hand He has grasped, Treading down nations before him, Ungirding the loins of kings, Opening doors before him And letting no gate stay shut: Isaiah 45:1
Cyrus is the king anointed by God for this role and is an example to the world for respecting every faith and every language.
Iran is acting in direct opposition to how a king of Persia should act, as was exemplified by Cyrus who acted to return the Jews to Israel and return the service to the Temple in Jerusalem. It is for this reason that Cyrus, a Persian king, was honored in the Bible as the anointed king, anointed to perform this function, serving as an example for the entire world and all the nations as one who honors all faiths that act as pathways to God and every nation as a manifestation of the nations that came from Noah.
The Persian and Medes and all who make up the people of Iran will do well to return and choose their path to the God of Israel, to retain their historical role as was done by the first kings of Persia and to promote the establishment of the Temple of Israel on Mount Moriah for the peace of the entire whole world in a manner that will include all nations. In doing so, the nation of Persia will once again be glorified and receive blessing and grace and mercy from the God of Israel, the Creator of the world.
Trump as "The Anointed King"
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, the spokesman for the Sanhedrin, emphasized that Iran stands at a historic crossroads.
"Though they may appear to be entirely evil, the basis of Iran is the Persian Empire," Rabbi Weiss told Breaking Israel News. "The roots of their identity as a nation lies with Cyrus as a power of good in the world. Unfortunately, this power can be hijacked, as we saw in the reign of Ahasuerus when Haman, a foreign influence, nearly succeeded in imposing his will on the Persian King."
"The Sanhedrin is calling on the Persian people to cast off this foreign influence of the Ayatollahs that has turned them away from their history and national identity and set them against Israel."
Rabbi Weiss explained that part of the blame lies with the United Nations which, as its name implies, was intended to create a single world order that erased the Biblical concept of nations, a concept that was initiated by Noah and reinforced when the nations came to the Temple in Jerusalem every Sukkoth. Rabbi Weiss emphasized that a forum for the nations to come together was necessary and, as such, was Biblically mandated.
"But the UN took this holy vessel and abused it, mutilating it so that it served their purpose," Rabbi Weiss said.
Obama Initiated the War of Gog and Magog
The rabbi said that this unholy new world order agenda took on renewed momentum under former U.S. President Barack Obama.
"He utilized the UN as his own personal weapon to bring about new world order and to battle Israel and Jerusalem which stood as the greatest threat to this new world order," Rabbi Weiss said. "He almost succeeded in erasing the borders of his own country. The Iran deal was intended to strengthen Iran while repressing the true Persian identity of that nation. Obama sat back while Assad used chemical weapons against his own people."
"The role of Cyrus as the anointed king was for a specific role and not as a personal designation. There needs to be a central figure that unites the 70 nations. In his time, it was Cyrus. ," Rabbi Weiss said, noting that the Sanhedrin had compared President Trump to the Persian king. "This could be Trump but he also stands at a crossroads. He has begun well but he must not turn his back on the main vessel for uniting the nations which is Jerusalem."
"He is also threatened by the Iranians. If he does not stand up to them, they will remove him. The people in America should not think that the shadow of the War of Gog and Magog does not threaten them. They will certainly be included in it, as the prophecy stated so clearly that it will include all the nations."
"This international war, the War of Gog and Magog, already began four years ago and very few people noticed. 300,000 people died in Syria. The Kurds are threatened with genocide and Christians are being targeted as a nation in the Middle East. Obama initiated the Iranian program to allow them to become the biggest threat in the world."
A Sacrifice of Noah to Defer Judgement of Gog and Magog War
As the head of the Sanhedrin's Noahide Court, Rabbi Yoel Schwartz is leading a deliberation into whether a Noahide sacrifice could offset some of the harsh judgment included in the War of Gog and Magog. Such a sacrifice was offered last month, one week before the Jewish New Year on the day that Jewish Tradition believes the world was created. The Sanhedrin court is considering the benefits of such a sacrifice brought on the 27th of Cheshvan, the anniversary of the day that Noah exited the ark and brought a sacrifice to God.
"If the world unites in an act that contains the acknowledgment of the God of the Bible, then this strengthens our connection with God who sustains the world," Rabbi Schwartz said.
Jews are forbidden from bringing a sacrifice anywhere outside of the Temple Mount. Since this is currently forbidden by the Israeli government, this sacrifice renewing the covenant of Noah can only be brought by non-Jews.
This law is described by Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, known as Maimonides and by the acronym Rambam who was the foremost Torah authority of the 12th century. In his Mishneh Torah (Maaseh Hakorbanot 19:16) the Rambam wrote:
Gentiles are permitted to offer burnt offerings to God in all places, provided they sacrifice them on a raised structure that they build. It is forbidden to help them [offer these sacrifices] or act as agents for them, for we are forbidden to sacrifice outside [the Temple Courtyard]. It is permitted to instruct them and teach them how to sacrifice to the Almighty, blessed be He.
The altar must be built exclusively by non-Jews who observe the Noahide laws and the same is true of the sacrifice itself. Other than instructing the non-Jews, Jews are forbidden from taking part in the sacrifice.
Breaking Israel News will publish updates informing the public of the Sanhedrin's decision.
Minting a Coin to Establish the Kingdom of God
The Sanhedrin is planning to mint a coin as part of the effort to establish 70 nations in opposition to one world order. Though this may seem like a symbolic act, the Sanhedrin believes it will have a great impact on the situation.
"Governments mint coins as a way of establishing their rule," Rabbi Weiss said. "There have been many attempts to establish a universal monetary system. If successful, this will be a disaster."
The Sanhedrin coin bears a clear message on its face: Cyrus is My Anointed King (Isaiah 45): Seventy Nations.
Daily Jot: Conspiracy no longer a theory - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com
Judicial Watch, a government watchdog organization, revealed Friday, November 8, that a careful examination of the White House visitor logs of the immediate past president's White House provided keen insight into the connection between the Democratic leadership, the deep state, and the impeachment movement. The logs indicate that CIA employee Eric Ciaramella was detailed to the White House in 2015 and returned to the CIA in 2017. The logs also reveal what appears to be a collaboration between the State Department, the CIA, the White House, the Democratic National Committee, Leftist billionaire George Soros-funded organizations and the actors in both the "Pee Dossier" and Ukraine.
According to Judicial Watch: "The logs also reveal Alexandra Chalupa, a contractor hired by the DNC during the 2016 election who coordinated with Ukrainians to investigate President Trump and his former campaign manager Paul Manafort, visited the White House 27 times. The White House visitor logs revealed the following individuals met with Eric Ciaramella while he was detailed to the Obama White House: Daria Kaleniuk: Co-founder and executive director of the Soros-funded Anticorruption Action Center (AntAC) in Ukraine. She visited on December 9, 2015 The Hill reported that in April 2016, during the U.S. presidential race, the U.S. Embassy under Obama in Kiev, "took the rare step of trying to press the Ukrainian government to back off its investigation of both the U.S. aid and (AntAC)."
Judicial Watch reports: "James Melville: Then-recently confirmed as Obama's Ambassador to Estonia, visited on September 9, 2015.On June 29, 2018, Foreign Policy reported that Melville resigned in protest of Trump. Victoria Nuland: who at the time was assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs met with Ciaramella on June 17, 2016. (Judicial Watch has previously uncovered documents revealing Nuland had an extensive involvement with the Clinton-funded dossier. Judicial Watch also released documents revealing that Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department's "urgent" gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Trump taking office.) Artem Sytnyk: the Ukrainian Anti-Corruption Bureau director visited on January 19, 2016."
In analyzing the connections, this appears to resemble an organized cartel aimed at replacing the Constitutional Republic with a communist-level dictatorship in the name of "democracy"-just as most leftist coups attempt to do. If it wasn't Donald Trump, it would have been whoever else threatened the cartel that is rooted deep in the intelligence community, the State Department and nefarious organizations, such as those supported by Soros. There is a deep web of influence actively undermining the United States. Psalm 83 is often quoted regarding Israel and the end times, but like all scripture it has relevance to other situations. Verses 4-5 say, "They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation...for they have conspired together with one consent: they are confederate against you." Indeed, they are.
Daily Devotion: Are We Above Prayer? - by Greg Laurie -
I went on praying and confessing my sin and the sin of my people, pleading with the Lord my God for Jerusalem, his holy mountain.-Daniel 9:20
If there is a sin that the church as a whole is guilty of, I would say it is prayerlessness.
For example, if there's a Bible study, attendance will be good. If there's a guest speaker, attendance will be even better. If there will be special music or a guest artist that people like to listen to, attendance might be better still.
But when there's a prayer meeting, guess what happens? Attendance goes down. Why? Because we think we don't need to pray.
Do we need more Bible studies and more worship and more musical artists? There's a place for that, of course. But are we above prayer now? James 4:2 says, "You do not have because you do not ask" (NKJV).
The Bible tells us about a time when the prophet Daniel was deeply moved after reading God's Word. He said, "I went on praying and confessing my sin and the sin of my people, pleading with the Lord my God for Jerusalem, his holy mountain" (Daniel 9:20 NLT).
Notice that he prayed for his own forgiveness, but he prayed for others, too.
Maybe you've seen someone who has fallen away or is compromising spiritually, and you've talked about it to everyone. How about praying for them instead? How about interceding for them? Why should you do that? Because, my friend, one day it could be you.
Any of us have the capacity to fall into sin. So we should pray and intercede for others. We should stand in the gap for them. If only we would spend as much time talking to God about others as we spend time gossiping about others.
When was the last time you prayed not just for your own needs, but also for someone else? It's time to intercede for others in prayer.
