Talk about omens! After calling for peace and an end to protests in Ukraine, Pope Francis watched as two children released doves into St. Peter’s Square. However, no sooner had the doves taken flight than they were under attack by other birds! Is it a sign of the times? One wonders. You can see the AP report plus video here (warning, disturbing images):
Racist slaughtered partner and daughter; spared youngest child because she was ‘pure Aryan’
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. – Gen. 6:5In the Old Testament, we’re told that the Lord God saw the continual evil in the world and declared that the Earth must be cleansed, so He sent a flood to wipe out all that drew breath. The only survivors of that deluge were Noah, his wife, his sons and their wives; eight in all. Now, as we approach the final age of life as we know it, evil appears to be running rampant through the streets and behind the closed doors of the houses on those streets. In fact, not a day goes by without major headlines relating chilling accounts of mutilations, mayhem, and murder.
Take for instance, today’s story about the court proceedings centering on a husband and father who suddenly murdered his live-in girlfriend and one of two daughters–leaving his other daughter alive because she has ‘pure Aryan blood’. According to the court record, John Miller of Garforth, West Yorkshire watched the British nighttime soap Coronation Street with his family before butchering them. Why? Miller’s defense is that he received signals from his microwave and computer: Continue reading
“I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” (Gen. 3:15 ESV)
The above quote is from the English Standard Version, but the King James uses the term ‘seed’ translated above as ‘offspring’. Either way, it is clear that the enemy (Satan) would produce ‘seed’ or ‘offspring’ destined to hate the ‘seed’ or ‘offspring’ of mankind—in particular, one very specific human offspring, the promised Messiah—God made flesh. The battle lines had been drawn, and so the non-human (angelic) camp waste little time before commencing to do battle with the human camp. Continue reading
A Call to Awaken and Prepare to Meet The Bridegroom!
Hat tip to Kit’s Blog for finding and posting this article and to Susan for emailing me the link!
In the ‘lying signs and wonders’ category this week is this report from Manila about a woman who claims to see ‘Mama Mary’ on a mountain called ‘Salvation’.
The ‘seer’ is Emma C. de Guzman, who, according to the report, holds healing sessions twice a year in a shrine on Mount Batulao, which pilgrims call their “Mountain of Salvation.”
According to a June 27th report at the Philippine Star:
Emma de Guzman is a poor widow with three children from Cabanatuan in Nueva Ecija and had to work initially as a domestic helper in Singapore in the early ‘80s and later in Canada as a nanny (she didn’t even know what a nanny was before she got the job).
De Guzman’s first vision, she claims, was of Jesus Christ Himself. Later, on a trip to New York with her employer, de Guzman ‘saw’ her first vision of Mary:
Emma said that the vision happened while she was at the Fatima Shrine during a trip to New York with her employer. When she returned to her home base in Canada, she says that the Blessed Mother started appearing to her repeatedly.
Emma also ‘sees’ and communicates with saints such as Bernadette, Sister Faustina, Teresa of Avila, and even St. John (Christ’s disciple and writer of the book of Revelation). It was John, de Guzman claims, who spoke to her in ancient Greek. Continue reading
In yesterday’s UNGA speech, President Barack Obama called for the start to negotiations regarding peace in Israel.
According to today’s Reuter’s article:
Obama told the U.N. “the time has come to re-launch negotiations — without preconditions — that address the permanent-status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians; borders, refugees and Jerusalem.”
The U.S. leader added that “the goal is clear: two states living side by side in peace and security — a Jewish State of Israel, with true security for all Israelis; and a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory.” [emphasis SKG]
Isn’t it a bit, shall we say, disingenuous, to state that there would be ‘no pre-conditions’ and then state a pre-condition? Apparently, President Obama intends that only Netanyahu cannot state any pre-condition. And how curious that President Obama would employ the phrase, ‘peace and security’. The people of Israel and their leaders would be wise to consider I Thessalonians 5:3:
When people say, “There is peace and security,” destruction will strike them as suddenly as labor pains come to a pregnant woman, and they will not be able to escape.
Contiguous territory? According Merriam-Webster, contiguous implies an unbroken line of connectivity. How can the West Bank and Gaza strip join to form a Palestinian state that is contiguous? Here’s a map (from globalsecurity.org): Continue reading
