Christianity is now the latest victim of hate, targeted by George Floyd, BLM and Antifa vandals across the US: Almost 250 million Christians live in countries where they experience high levels of persecution around the world
(OPINION) Michael Snyder – 2020 has been an incredibly bizarre year up to this point, and this has many people wondering if the hand of God is at work. And the worse things get, the more this sort of speculation will heat up. When things get crazy, people search for answers, and that can be a good thing. Because the truth is that during normal times most of us are way too self-absorbed and most of us spend far too little time thinking about the things that really matter.
2020 has really shaken up a large portion of the U.S. population, and we should hope that all of this shaking ultimately moves our society in a more positive direction. Right now, COVID-19 is dominating the headlines day after day, and the debates that I have seen on social media platforms about this pandemic have often gotten quite heated.
I knew that many people had extremely passionate opinions about COVID-19, but what I didn’t realize is that a large percentage of them are also convinced that God is somehow involved. In fact, an Associated Press/NORC survey found that 63 percent of all religious Americans believe that this pandemic is “a sign from God”… Sixty-three percent of religious Americans say that the novel coronavirus pandemic is a sign from God, telling humanity to change its ways of living, according a new poll.
The poll, which was conducted by the Associated Press/NORC, surveyed 1,002 U.S. adults who say they believe in God. I was stunned to see a number that high. The Bible does tell us that there will be “pestilences” in the last days, and it would have been very interesting to see how many respondents to that survey believe that this COVID-19 pandemic is one of those pestilences.
In any event, if this pandemic actually does inspire vast numbers of Americans to live better lives, that would definitely be a positive outcome. Unfortunately, that does not appear to be happening. Instead, surveys have shown that Americans are increasingly turning to drugs, alcohol and television during this pandemic, and a survey that was released just this week found that Bible reading in the United States dropped precipitously “between January and June”…

To understand just how dishonest the discussion about Jerusalem is when conducted in venues where Israel is regarded with hostility, like The New York Times, you need to start by discussing events in Istanbul, Turkey.
Last week, the regime of Turkish authoritarian President Recep Tayyip Erdogan moved to turn the clock back to 1453, when the Muslim Ottomans besieged the city then known as Constantinople. It was all that was left of the once-mighty Byzantine Empire, which ruled much of the region as the successor to ancient Rome in the eastern Mediterranean. When the city fell after a 53-day siege, the attacking forces engaged in an orgy of murder, rape, and destruction.
But in the aftermath of the battle, the Ottoman Turks not only made the city the capital over which their empire would rule until the end of World War I; they also converted the city's largest church -- the Hagia Sophia, which was the center of Eastern Orthodox Christian worship -- into a mosque.
The action was typical of conquerors in that era, as well as in ancient times, and the symbolism of triumphant imperialistic Islam was obvious. But in the 20th century, when Turkey became a secular republic after the fall of the Ottomans, the Hagia Sophia was turned into a museum as part of secularist-leaning Kemal Atatürk's efforts to put Islamic extremism in the past.
A century later, Erdogan is determined to consign such enlightened attitudes to the dustbin of history. The Turkish leader's ambition to be the leader of the Islamic world is also motivating him to engage in the sort of gestures that will prop up notions about maintaining Islam's domination of the region.
In a statement, Erdogan said that the reimposition of Muslim worship at the Hagia Sophia is "the harbinger of the liberation of Masjid al-Aqsa [the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Jerusalem's Temple Mount]." That's a call for throwing Israel out of Jerusalem and the spot holiest in Judaism. That this incendiary comment came during the period when religious Jews begin the period of mourning for the destruction of the ancient Temple culminating on Tisha B'Av is probably coincidental but still chilling.
What happened in Constantinople was hardly unique. Invading Muslims did the same thing everywhere that they triumphed during the period when they spread their faith by force of arms from India to Europe. And, to be fair, Christian forces repaid the favor when they reconquered Spain and the Balkans by converting mosques into churches.
So when Erdogan echoes the Palestinian rhetoric of both the so-called moderates of Fatah and the extremists of Hamas about chasing the Jews from Jerusalem, he's not just signaling his hostility to the Jewish state. He's also making it clear that he wishes to claim the title of the guardian of Islam from Saudi leaders that many Muslims think are now tainted by their under-the-table relations with Israel.
Erdogan Fears the Image of Jesus Christ as he converts the Hagia Sophia Church into a mosque
ERDOGAN FEARS THE IMAGE OF JESUS CHRIST
AS HE CONVERTS THE HAGIA SOPHIA CHURCH INTO A MOSQUE
Turkish President Erdogan has rejected worldwide condemnation over his decision to change the status of Istanbul's landmark Hagia Sophia Church from a museum to a mosque.
Fearing the image of Jesus Christ, Erdogan ordered the images of Jesus covered inside the Hagia Sophia church during Islamic prayer directed to the image of the beast, the Kaaba, in Mecca.
The Hagia Sophia is a place of worship in Istanbul (Constantinople) that served as a Greek Orthodox Christian patriarchal cathedral for over 900 years (537-1453) until overrun by Islamic forces. The church was dedicated to the “Wisdom of God”, the Logos, the second person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ-the Son of God.
The Hagia Sophia was completed in 537, during the reign of the eastern Roman emperor Justinian I. It is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is said to have "changed the history of architecture".
It is also an important example of the Islamic practice of converting non-Islamic places of worship into mosques, which has led to conflicts and religious strife in several parts of the world.
After the false doctrine was given to Mohammad by the spirit, Islam began to rapidly spread. The Ottoman Islamic forces conquered most of Asia Minor. In 1453, Mehmed the Conqueror [“Mehmed” is the Turkish form of the Arabic name Mohammad] ordered the cathedral's conversion into a mosque.
The Hagia Sophia bells, altar, iconostasis, and baptistery were removed and destroyed. The mosaics depicting Jesus, his mother Mary, and angels were eventually destroyed or plastered over.
More than 600 years before the False Prophet Mohammad, Jesus warned a false text would follow the Book of Revelation. This false text was the Qur’an. It showed up about 515 years after Revelation was written in 95 AD. Just as Jesus said, the Qur’an adds the words that bring the plagues of Revelation. Just as Jesus said, the Qur’an takes away the words of eternal life through Jesus only, the risen Son of God.
Revelation 22:18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. Revelation 22:19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.
The Book of Revelation concludes (Revelation 22:18-19) with powerful warnings from God. Do not add nor take away from the Book of Revelation! The false prophet, image and mark actions of Islam, and the taking away of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus are the sources of these Revelation warnings. The warnings make sense, since the entire Revelation prophecy is about the release of Baal, Islam and the false prophet Mohammad. Listen to Jesus and avoid the false prophet’s teachings.
A solemn warning on the book of Revelation! Do not add anything to the text, nor take anything away from the text. Do not believe the Qur’an is the final revelation from God.
REVELATION WARNED THE QUR’AN WOULD ADD TEXT AND TAKE AWAY THE TRUTH
The added text warnings in Revelation 22:18 are about the Qur’an! Here is how the Qur’an adds the very actions that bring on the specific Revelation plagues from God! The Qur’an adds the teaching of the false prophet Mohammad, it adds his mark, a statement of faith to a false god, and the Qur’an adds prayer and worship to the image he sets up to honor the beast. Qur’an 7:57 says Mohammad’s name is in the Bible. Qur’an 21:25 gives the Islamic statement of faith, the mark, the Shahada. Qur’an 2:127 and 2:144 require prayer to the image of the beast, the Kaaba.
The taking away of words warnings in Revelation 22:19 are also about the Qur’an! Here is how the Qur’an takes words away and eliminate the salvation from God, and your share in the tree of life in the New Jerusalem. Qur’an 4:171 takes away the Deity of Jesus, and says Jesus is not God. Qur’an 4:157 takes away the sacrifice of Christ, and says Jesus was not crucified. Qur’an 17:111 says Jesus was not the Son of God. Qur’an 5:75 says Jesus was not God but just a messenger of Allah. The Qur’an adds, and it also takes away! The closing chapter of the Book of Revelation makes clear there is no more Scripture after Revelation. The Bible is final!
Turkish President Erdogan converts Hagia Sophia into mosque, Christian leaders call for reversal
Last week, the Turkish government converted the Sixth Century Church of the Hagia Sophia into a mosque. One America's Stefan Kleinhenz has more on the long history of the church and what Christian leaders are saying about the move.

In a recent interview, renowned Israeli Rabbi Daniel Asor warned of a globalist takeover happening as we speak. “If Hitler is the Third Reich, then the New World Order is the fourth Reich. It is Amalek’s last meeting with us before the Messiah’s arrival” he said.
Based on the Kabalah teachings written by Italian Jewish rabbi and doctor Rabbi Moshe David Vali, who was a student and confidant of the prominent Jewish Kabbalist Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto (RaMCHaL), Rabbi Asor reveals the dates that the Messiah will reveal himself.
“We are very very close to redemption” Rabbi Asor said.
(ETH) – More preparations are being made for the long-anticipated “third temple” in Jerusalem as a new report is indicating that showbread is now being prepared for the awaited service in the future “third temple” according to BIN.
Lechem Hapanim in Hebrew (literally, the bread of the faces), the ancient art of preparing the showbread for use in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem has not been practiced for close to 2000 years. During the Second Temple period, the showbreads were baked by the Garmu family of Levi’im (Levites). Each Friday, the Garmu family baked a new set of 12 loaves.
Each of the loaves represented one of the 12 Tribes. They were placed on the Temple’s golden shulchan (table) in two stacks of six and they remained on the shulchan all week. According to Saidel, these special breads had miracles associated with them during the time the Holy Temples stood in Jerusalem.
Despite the fact that the breads sat out uncovered for seven days, they miraculously remained fresh and warm, even a week later. The showbreads were replaced every Friday and the previous week’s showbreads were distributed among the incoming and outgoing shifts of kohanim (priests assigned to work in the Temple).
Saidel explained that this amounted to 400 or 500 people eating from these 12 loaves. Despite the fact that each kohen (priest) received only a small amount of bread, it miraculously was as filling as if they had eaten an entire meal. Saidel has lived in Israel for 35 years. For the first 25 years after making aliyah (immigrating to Israel), he worked as a computer programmer.

The Fiery Red Horse, Wikipedia
Unhinged. A chain of events has unhinged the structure of our world in just 203 days: If you are a man of faith, you would be forgiven if you have come to the conclusion that the Fiery Red Horse of the Apocalypse has been released and just maybe it has
A chain of events has unhinged the structure of our world in a matter of weeks. On the 31st of December 2019, an "urgent notice on the treatment of pneumonia of unknown cause" was issued by the Medical Administration and Medical Administration of Wuhan Municipal Health Committee. 27 people with pneumonia of an unknown cause were reported to the WHO on 31 December. Most were stallholders from the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, seven of whom were in critical condition but no deaths had been reported, the world didn't really take notice, we were celebrating New Year's Eve, sipping Champagne and watching the fireworks.
Just 203 days later, nearly 15 million people have been infected and more than 600,000 have died.
Some 1.6 billion people employed in the informal economy – or nearly half the global workforce - will see their livelihoods destroyed due to the continued decline in working hours brought on by lockdowns to curb the spread of COVID-19, the International Labour Organization. In the near future, the world economy will fall into a 1930's Esque depression resulting in a massive spike in inflation causing famine, more disease and even more violence and our society to collapse like a pack of cards and the virus ain't going anywhere soon.
In just 203 days, COVID-19, Left and Right-wing anarchists along with hesitant overwhelmed police forces, poor local and government leadership have brought many of our wonderful cities to the brink. Violence has exploded onto our streets like a bad Hollywood zombie B movie. A huge spike in murder and crime has plunged our society back into the days of the wild west, where lawlessness is king. As unemployment increases so will the violence and the crime.
Troops will be employed to our great cities to combat the violence, tanks and armoured vehicles manned by heavily armed soldiers will be seen alongside historic landmarks in Paris, London, Madrid, New York City and many more. We will be in a physical and spiritual lockdown, locked up in our homes not daring to venture outside for fear of criminals, the military and Covid-19, we will be living a dystopian movie.
If you were a man of faith, you would be forgiven if you have come to the conclusion that the Fiery Red Horse of the Apocalypse has been released and just maybe it has.
There are other catastrophic events happening around the world which are not being noticed due to all the above. Catastrophes which would be front-page headlines around the world were it not for Covid-19 and Wester society's breakdown.
Signs of a True Prophet That You Need To Know
(OPINION) Charisma – Paul is again warning us in his letter to Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:5-7 to protect us from the deception in these last days: “having a form of godliness, but denying its power. Turn away from such people. Those of this nature creep into houses and captivate silly women who are burdened with sins and led away with various desires, always learning, but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
We are not to be naïve, but wise. No matter how godly, how charismatic, how charming, or how appealing the one with a message may seem, we are responsible to try the spirits and judge the message against the Word of God. We endanger ourselves when we run to others for direction and comfort instead of to God. The modern-day prophet is not meant to take the place of God.
True prophets bring clarity to the Word. They help shed revelation knowledge on God’s people. They do not mince words but are very direct and to the point. They do not use flattery to gain favor. The prophetic words they deliver are not their own, but God’s.
Their message complements the Word of God but does not substitute the Word. They do not need to be coaxed from the receiver to see if what they are prophesying is the truth. They will bring transparency to the obscure. The message they deliver from God will release freedom. They have a low tolerance level for blatant sin and a rebellious spirit.
They are not going to ask you to compromise and do something ungodly. Understanding these characteristics should help to discern a true prophet from a false prophet. False messages are not only delivered by false prophets and false teachers, but also by other means as well. Other delivery services are lying and deceptive spirits whispering to our minds and emotions. We are to judge these messages passing through our minds and working on our emotions.
JERUSALEM SCHOOL TRAINS PRIESTS TO PERFORM TEMPLE RITUALS IN ANTICIPATION OF 3RD TEMPLE
A school next to Temple Mount is bringing the Third Temple one step closer by establishing a school for Jewish priests (kohanim) to learn how to perform the Temple Service. A group of students, certified as being from the priestly caste, stands ready to learn all of the details of this complicated task, which may become relevant sooner than one may think.
(OPINION) PNW – With all the restrictions and societal changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, I found myself longing for the “carefree” days of 2019 when everything was “normal.” Perhaps you’ve felt the same way. Of course, 2019 was far from perfect. It had its own problems and stresses, but only in comparison to 2020 do we think of 2019 as “the good old days.” And that got me thinking… This seems to be happening a lot lately.
We’ve had no less than three of these events in the past 20 years. If you’re old enough to remember, it was a different world before September 11, 2001. After September 11th, collective fear increased. All sorts of restrictions and protective measures were put in place. Where would the next terrorist threat come from? Many long for the relatively simple days of life before that terrible day.
Then in 2008, the Great Recession hit. Many people lost their jobs, and among those who didn’t, fear of an impending layoff increased. Many longed for the “simpler” times of the post-September 11th years. Now, here we are in 2020. We’re in the middle of a global pandemic, and many long for a return to their pre-pandemic lives. None of this should surprise us.
Jesus said the days before His return will follow this exact pattern. He likened them to birth pains (Matthew 24:3-8). This means, as with labor contractions, we’ll see these types of events increase in frequency and strength as we approach the end of this age. What we’re seeing today are the birth pains Jesus warned about.
Three Teachings of the Antichrist - Doctrines to Get Your Guard up For
Get this free short book for more details: https://bit.ly/3jpPSi3
The Antichrist will deceive millions with these three teachings... You need to know what they are! These teachings will be so pervasive and enticing, the majority of Christians will be misled.
Here they are straight from the pages of your Bible.
In the first century, the Apostle John was already fighting against many antichrists and their teachings, as we discussed in a previous video. From his letters, we learn three doctrines of the Antichrist we need to watch for. The first teaching of the Antichrist is stated in 1 John 4:1-3.
It says, “every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist.” Or, put in modern terms the Antichrist will teach that:
“Christ was not REALLY fully human, like us.” To combat this false teaching John wrote, “we have seen [Him] with our eyes… we have looked upon [Him], and our hands have handled [Him]…” John was saying, “We know better than that! We saw Him, we were there with Him! We physically touched Him! We know for a fact He was fully human like us! Don’t be deceived.” Jesus was a real, physical human being, but He was also unique because He had God's Spirit "without measure." (John 3:34) And He was “God with us” (Matthew 1:23), meaning that He was the One who had been with the Father from eternity (John 1:14). But, Phil 2:6-8 shows He did NOT hold on to His God level of existence, but instead, “emptied Himself” and became a man, like us. Being fully human, yet using the full strength of the Holy Spirit, He learned to fight, resist, and overcome sin in the face of temptation and suffering. (Hebrews 5:8; Phil 2:8) Hebrew 4 says, “we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.” (Heb 4:15) Having fully given up His God level of existence, He became a man, making it possible for Him to choose sin. Yet, He set the perfect example, lived in complete obedience, and showed us HOW to overcome sin. Jesus showed it is possible, which is why we are exhorted throughout scripture to also overcome sin and live in obedience to God's commandments. And this brings us to the second Antichrist teaching, that We do not need to keep the commandments of God. To combat this false idea, the Apostle John explained that Christians must strive to keep the commandments in order to live a life pleasing to God. Right after explaining that he and the other apostles knew for a fact that Jesus was fully human, John explains how a person can be sure they know God. “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” (1 John 2:3-4) Continuing to fight this false teaching, in Chapter 5:3 he says, “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.” And in Chapter 3 he explains that sin is the breaking of the laws of God, and that Christians must live a life of obedience. Paul also talked about the antichrist, calling him the "lawless one" that is, on without law, specifically God’s laws, He said, “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders.” (2 Thes 2:8-9) As we saw in a previous video, the antichrist will appear righteous but will be far from it. It will seem like He’s pointing the world to God, but will actually point people away from keeping ALL 10 commandments. Jesus warned us, "Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (Matt 5:19) So, the second teaching of the antichrist that John specifically addresses is that we do not need to keep the commandments of God.
The third teaching of the antichrist is Jesus Christ is not CURRENTLY coming (or living) in the flesh.
2 John 7 says, “For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. This time instead of saying Jesus HAS come in the flesh, in the past, John says something about the PRESENT: That Jesus IS STILL COMING in the flesh TODAY, present tense. So, how does He live in the flesh now? The answer is, Christ lives in repentant, forgiven, and obedient Christians through the Holy Spirit. And He lives His same obedient life in them that He lived 2000 years ago, giving them the strength to fight and overcome sin, just as He did.
In search of the real Cana, where Jesus turned water into wine
We were shocked to find out that today’s modern town of Cana might not be the ancient Cana where Jesus turned water into wine. So we set out for an adventure to find the real location. To our surprise, we did not expect to embark on a journey that would take over one year's time, but we have finally made it and are excited to share it with you. So join us on this journey in search of the town where Jesus turned water into wine.

July 6 2020 Shall Suffer Persecution or Raptured?
Don't be offended by asking this: SHALL BE PERSECUTED OR RAPTURED? Pre-tribbers use 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 to show we will be RAPTURED:
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
DOES THAT SCRIPTURE PROVE A PRE-TRIB RAPTURE?
For years I believed and was taught at church and at 2 bible colleges that we would be RAPTURED before the tribulation....but really seeking the Lord and the Word I found its just not true. DARBY brought that TEACHING but the word says otherwise........Think about the WORD what it actually says, not what you want it to be.
PREPARE FOR PERSECUTION AND HARD TIMES. Tribulation is coming.
Be brave enough to look at this, without offense. It is being presented in LOVE.
