(FW) – The Satanic Temple (TST) has announced it’s raffling a free abortion to promote the organization’s religious abortion ritual, while it argues that its members’ religious rights are exempt from any state laws or any regulations that might block access to abortion services during the first trimester.
According to TST, the free abortion can be medical or surgical and is transferable upon request. Headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, TST describes its new Satanic abortion ritual as a “spiritual experience designed to instill confidence and self-worth in accordance to TST’s religious beliefs.”
The organization contends those who practice the Satanic abortion ritual are exempt from being subjected to waiting periods, mandatory counseling, forced viewing of sonograms, and reading materials as required in many states.
“TST bases its assertions of abortion mandate exemptions on the protections provided by State Religious Freedom Restoration Acts or RFRA, which generally prohibits the government from substantially interfering with a person’s free exercise of religion,” TST said in a press release.
The Satanic Temple claims their abortion ritual as practiced by its members is exempt from the existing abortion regulations on the basis of religious liberty. They point to the 2014 Supreme Court ruling that Hobby Lobby as a business had the right not to cover birth control, including abortifacient drugs, as a part of its health care program for its employees, because of its religious beliefs that viewed such a practice as immoral.

(OPINION) Charisma – The Bible teaches that the church is supposed to influence the world as salt and light (Matt. 5:13-16), but instead the church has often been influenced by the world. The book of Ezekiel 22:26 sends a stern rebuke to believers who make no distinction between that which is common and that which is holy (by “common” I mean worldly things and values).
In this article, “secular” refers to worldly rather than holy and set apart for God’s purposes. Truly any congregation that has no distinction from the world is close to extinction. The reason so many evangelical churches have grown so rapidly is not necessarily because of a true spiritual revival but because of cultural accommodation. The following are 10 signs your church has been secularized:
They preach only what is popular and avoid what is culturally controversial. Often secularized pastors stay away from preaching on the standards of biblical morality so as to stay in the societal mainstream and avoid offending visitors. The result is a membership that only hears a partial gospel without the power to renew minds, which leaves them as secular saints.
There is no standard for membership or those serving in ministry. I have heard reports of many churches that allow anyone to become a member and/or serve in ministry positions without being vetted. The result is people serving on worship teams or as small group leaders who are engaged in premarital sex, cohabitation or living a morally subpar Christian life.
Premarital sex and cohabitation between unmarried couples are normalized in the congregation. When folks in the congregation have the same view as the world when it comes to sexual ethics, that is a secularized congregation.
Most young people have normalized alternate forms of family and marriage. When the youth of a church, by and large, adopt and/or celebrate unbiblical views regarding family and marriage, then that congregation is secularized.
Secular music is played at church events. I have heard of churches that incorporate secular music as a normal part of their church services and/or church-related events. Although this is primarily done to attract more visitors by being more relevant, it waters down the distinction between the world and the church and makes them spiritually irrelevant.

(OPINION) BIN – 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.”
Despite his many years of education, Snediker would be hard-pressed to find “Palestine” 2,000 years ago, or at any other point in history. To carry out his horrifying plan, Snediker would have had to ask for directions to Bethlehem in Judea. Even more perplexing was that many of the negative responses were anti-Semitic in nature, wrongly assuming that Snediker was Jewish.
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.”

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.

Warning of a one world government ruling the world, the rabbi cautions that in the Hebrew calendar year “Taf Shin Pey Aleph (September 2020-September 2021) from Tevet (January-February) until Elul (August–September) those will be the 9 months where the New World Order rules.
In the following year of Taf Shin Pey Bet (September 2021-September 2022), a year of the Yovel (Jubilee), on Yom Kippur 2021, the Messiah will reveal himself and then disappear” the Rabbi explained. Yom Kippur 2021 falls on the night of September 15 until nightfall on September 16.
The rabbi then sources the Talmud revealing that in the end of the Jubilee year, the Messiah will re-emerge again on Yom Kippur 2022 which falls on October 4-5.
“On Yom Kippur, Moses brought the Torah down from Sinai. In the dessert we received the Torah and in the dessert we will receive the Messiah. But this time, the desert will not be what you think it is. It’ll be something completely different. The miracles that took place in the desert will reoccur” he notes.
“The divine presence will leave the diaspora and will come here to protect us” the rabbi said. “There’s a reason that there’s so much chaos in the world and that is because God has abandoned all of the beauty and glory of the nations. (Israel) will be the place where all of the beauty and glory is found.”
“Between Yom Kippur 2022-2023 the Messiah will make his second appearance and we will see the final redemption.” The rabbi added as a disclaimer that the Messiah can theoretically arrive sooner but that he is basing his analysis on the Kabbalistic teachings of the Ramchal as well as the Talmud.
Personal Note: I found this interesting with all that is going on around the world at this time. What is sad is Rabbi Daniel Asor and others are seeing the Messiah coming for the first time. However, this messiah who is coming is actually the anti-Messiah/Christ. Judaism as a whole does not see Yeshua/Jesus are the Messiah. If one studies the religion of Judaism, they will learn that it does not line up with what is written in the Bible. Those that practice Judaism have their own writings and sad to say, they devote most of their time studying the commentaries by other Rabbis past and present. The Hebrew writings (Old Testament) is not studied like it should. So, the one coming will not be the Messiah but rather he will be the anti-Messiah/Christ. Things will continue to get worse as we move closer to His Return. Personally, I do not think we have long to wait before we enter into tribulation. I think what all of us are currently going through are birth pains before we move into the tribulation.
Stay alert and if you are a believer in Yeshua/Jesus, pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for your nation. Time is drawing to a close before He returns. Yahweh guide all of us through this present storm.
Here is a video on the above article that will help put things in perspective.

In the Seat of Jeremiah and Daniel’s 70th Week [UPDATED]
We’ve been here before. Every time that God’s people became sinful, God sent teachers to warn that judgment was coming. They were always ignored, and then judgment came.
Well, here we are. Yet again in a time of great sin among God’s people. And, yet again, the call to righteousness is ignored.
Unfortunately, we have hireling pastors who will not tell us the truth.
Because it would cost them their job.
This means that you and I have to do their job. It means that we need to sit in the seat of Jeremiah, and you aren’t going to like it.
Oh, and there’s a persistent lie about Daniel’s 70th Week. It won’t go away. It’s driving me nuts. So, I gotta talk about it. Hopefully, it will start to drive you nuts, too.
Just What Is the Day of the Lord?
August 6, 2020
To learn more about what is to come, get our Free CD "Day of the LORD" for free: https://bit.ly/33hLV9p How is this free? It has already been paid for by others.
More than 30 prophecies in your Bible describe an awesome event that will rock the whole world. It’s called the DAY OF THE LORD. It will shake all nations and all peoples on earth. It will affect you and your family if you are alive to see it.
Just WHAT IS the DAY OF THE LORD? Is it a day of the week? How long will it last? Just HOW will it affect every nation and person on earth? What will it mean in the flow of Bible prophecy? The book of Revelation introduces the Day of the Lord with dramatic cosmic disturbances. “The stars of heaven” fall to the earth. The sun becomes black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon becomes like blood. There is a great earthquake. As it tells us in Revelation 6:14, “every mountain and island was moved out of its place.”
These heavenly signs are just the INTRODUCTION to the dramatic Day of the Lord. Will you be able to survive this convulsive and dangerous time? You need to know. The prophetic Day of the Lord will set the stage for the greatest and most encouraging event in modern history, the return of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. My friends, you need to understand this mysterious time period that will affect every human being on earth! Just what IS the Day of the Lord?
Warm greetings to all our friends around the world!
There’s a MAJOR PROPHETIC EVENT looming on the horizon. It’s called: THE DAY OF THE LORD. The great prophets of the Bible, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel wrote about it. The so-called Minor Prophets, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Zephaniah, Zechariah, and Malachi, also emphasized this event. Even the Apostles Peter, Paul, and John wrote about it.
Just WHAT is the Day of the Lord? And HOW does it fit into the FRAMEWORK of Bible Prophecy? More than 30 prophecies in YOUR BIBLE refer to the DAY OF THE LORD. On today’s program, we’ll answer the question, “Just WHAT IS the DAY OF THE LORD?” And we’ll be offering you a free audio compact disc that will help you in your study of Bible prophecy. Be sure to write down the phone number and contact information to order your free copy. You can also order this free audio compact disc on our Web site at TomorrowsWorld.org. This free one-hour audio compact disc “THE DAY OF THE LORD” covers much more information than we have time for in this program. Be sure to request your free copy.
If you have your Bible, turn to the Book of REVELATION, CHAPTER ONE. The Apostle John writes in REVELATION, the FIRST CHAPTER, VERSE 10, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet.”
John is NOT speaking of a day of the WEEK. He is speaking of the prophetic period of time described in the rest of the book as the Prophetic DAY OF THE LORD. John is NOT referring to Sunday. If he were, he would have referred to Sunday as “the first day” of the week as he did in the Gospel of John. Jesus Himself said He was Lord of the Sabbath, as it tells us in Mark 2:28! The expression “Lord’s Day” here in Revelation refers to the THEME of the whole book, the prophetic Day of the Lord, culminating in the return of Jesus Christ!
In Revelation CHAPTER FIVE, we read about a scroll sealed with seven seals. Jesus, the Revelator, opens the seals to the book. We read the description of these seals in Revelation the sixth chapter. The first four seals are known as the FOUR HORSEMEN of the Apocalypse. THE FIRST HORSE, the white horse and its rider, represent false religions, false Christs. Jesus Himself points out the sequence of these end-time events in the Olivet prophecy in Matthew 24. We’ve explained this convergence in previous programs. The second seal reveals a horseman riding a red horse with the power to take peace from the earth. The third seal presents a rider on a black horse representing the scarcity of food and resulting famine.
The fourth seal shows a rider on a pale horse named “DEATH” “and power was given to them [the four horsemen] over” ONE FOURTH of the earth to kill major populations. Jesus also spoke of the pestilence that normally follows on the heels of famine. Critics say there has always been war, famine, and pestilence. Our world has experienced epidemics and pandemics over the centuries. Now, mankind faces the challenge of trying to contain a virus more deadly than the SARS virus that spread around the world in 2003. COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, has caused panic, sickness, and death. But a time is coming when this will seem like the least of our problems. You and I will see the four horsemen of the apocalypse INTENSIFY THEIR RIDE with increasing global impact as time goes on. These four horsemen are revealed in REVELATION CHAPTER SIX as Christ opens the first four seals. Now, what happens when the fifth seal is opened?

USA.Life founder hails platform as alternative to Facebook, Twitter for Christians and conservatives
August 2, 2020
(CP) – As a growing number of conservatives and Christians across the United States believe social media giants are censoring them, a new platform aims to be a refuge for those who are seeking alternatives to Facebook and Twitter.
Founded in early 2019 by pastor and Silicon Valley technology expert Steven Andrew, USA.Life bills itself as “the answer to Facebook and Twitter censoring Christians, Conservatives, and Liberty.” The platform very closely resembles Facebook. Users can send messages, join groups, and become friends with other users. Along with likes, reactions to comments also include “the unique Christian Cross ‘Amen.’”
Last year, Andrew explained that “Facebook blocked 5 million people per month from my account alone, so I started USA.Life to give conservatives a social network that didn’t block their First Amendment right to free speech.”
On Wednesday, Twitter’s censorship was mentioned during the House Judiciary Subcommittee’s hearing on antitrust when Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., asked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg why the [Twitter] platform had temporarily suspended Donald Trump Jr.’s account.
The suspension came after the president’s son shared a video of doctors talking favorably about hydroxychloroquine, a drug that some claim can cure the novel coronavirus when used early in treatment along with zinc and Zithromax.

(OPINION) Charisma – Shortly after an encounter with intense spiritual warfare, the Lord revealed to me that, long before we were born, Satan devised a series of progressive stages intended to destroy our generation. “It’s a setup,” God said.
And He instructed me to expose this design so that we might not be outwitted by Satan (2 Cor. 2:11). In 2 Timothy 3, Paul writes that the last days will be distressing times filled with lovers of money, slanderers, unholy, and lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. Certainly, those of us in the \church have heard this passage preached plenty of times.
But then God showed me verse 6 in a fresh way. They will be burdened with sins and led away with various desires,” Paul warned. With this verse, the Lord revealed to me the three stages of Satan’s strategy against us, which later became the premise of my book, Silence Satan.
Stage 1: Overwhelm the culture with junk. To be overwhelmed means to be bombarded to the point of defeat. And this is precisely how Satan uses sin to destroy us today. He inundates our world with so much filth and perversion so that it’s almost impossible to escape it. You can’t browse the Internet, drive down the road, or wait in the checkout line at the store without some image or headline that tries to take your mind in the wrong direction. With this, he moves us into stage two.
Stage 2: Sway by desires. The culture of sin is designed to keep our minds in this place at all times, which is crucial to Satan’s strategy. He knows that where the mind goes, the man follows. Before long we’re consumed with the pleasures of the flesh and swayed from one regretful experience to the next.
Dream Prepare Yourself To Reject The Mark Of The Beast Prepare For Tribulation

(CBN) – Just a few miles away from Jerusalem’s Old City, archaeologists have unearthed an administrative storage center from the time of Kings Hezekiah and Manasseh about 2,700 years ago. The excavation was conducted by the Israel Antiquities Authority in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem.
Researchers found an unusually large structure made of stone walls believed to have been used for governmental activities. There, they discovered 120 jar handles with seal impressions on them in ancient Hebrew. Many of the handles have “LMLK” – which means “belonging to the king” – inscribed on them. Other handles have the names of senior officials and other important men on them.
Archaeologists say this is the most important collection of seals to be found in Israel in recent years. They believe the site was once used by the Jewish government to collect taxes, manage and distribute food supplies, and was surrounded by agricultural plots and orchards.
“The site is dated to a period documented in the Bible by upheavals such as that of the Assyrian conquest campaign – under the command of King Sennacherib in the days of King Hezekiah. It may be that the government economic provisions indicated by the stamp seals are related to these events however, the excavation revealed that the site continued to be active after the Assyrian conquest.
Moreover, the array of stamped seals indicated that the system of taxation remained uninterrupted during this period,” said Neria Sapir and Nathan Ben-Ari, directors of the excavations on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority.
