The New American: “PARIS — For all those who still have to deal with that crazy uncle over the Christmas season who insists that human emissions of the gas of life, or carbon dioxide, are causing dangerous global warming, fear not — the solution has arrived.

It is called Climate Hustle, and it masterfully debunks the claims of the “climate cult,” as many experts now refer to the alarmist movement, like no other resource produced thus far. Well-known analysts are already saying it will turn the tables on the alarmists. But more importantly, it will bring to light the facts and the science surrounding alleged man-made global warming that the establishment press has tried so hard to conceal.

The new documentary, which premiered in Paris [in December] amid the United Nations COP21 “climate change” summit, will serve as the perfect antidote to the increasingly shrill global-warming alarmism being peddled by the UN, the Obama administration, and others.”

Opinion: I post from this site regularly. Their analysis of the global warming agenda is thorough, but keep in mind that it is a secular website.

What you won’t see is how the globalist criminal enterprise promoting the climate movement is moving towards the destruction of capitalism, to be replaced by a utopian government that will require a leader with sweeping power who will stand above the rest ( Daniel 7:20).

The UN’s own have made it clear:

  • Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted last year that the real target of environmental activists is capitalism — they want to destroy it.
  • Former United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer said the goal is de facto redistribution of the world’s  wealth through climate policy.
  • One-time Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Chairman Rajendra Pachauri hitched onto the climate crusade because, for him and many others, it was his religion.
  • Author Naomi Klein, sees the global warming “crisis” as “the best chance we’re ever going to get to build a better world.” “Change, or be changed,” is her warning to those who won’t passively go along with the left’s economic takeover effort.

Tell us, they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

Most people, including born again Christians and their pastors, avoid those 3 words like the plague: end of the age.

Too scary they say … I don’t want to hear that stuff … I want to hear happy thoughts … and on and on, all the while the best news of all is that our loving and gracious God provided a pardon to all who believe:

Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from (Greek: out of) the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”

In like manner to the first Passover, the blood of the Lamb forgives every sin – past, present and future.

Do you know Him?

Zero Hedge: “Back in February, when we commented on the unprecedented hyperinflation about to be unleashed in the Latin American country whose president just announced that he would expand the “weekend” for public workers to 5 days

… we joked that it is unclear just where the country will find all the paper banknotes it needs for all its new physical currency. After all, central-bank data shows Venezuela more than doubled the supply of 100-, 50- and 2-bolivar notes in 2015 as it doubled monetary liquidity including bank deposits. Supply has grown even as Venezuela has fewer U.S. dollars to support new bolivars, a result of falling oil prices.

This question, as morbidly amusing as it may have been to us if not the local population, became particularly poignant recently when for the first time, one US Dollar could purchase more than 1000 Venezuela Bolivars on the black market (to be exact, it buys 1,127 as of today).

Opinion: One American dollar, if you can find one, will buy 1000 bolivars. One cigarette costs 100 bolivars. Shoppers take backpacks and gym bags stuffed with the currency with them in order to buy lunch.

Venezuela is getting what the rider on the black horse of Revelation 6:5-6 will one day bring to the global economy: hyperinflation, a stark reminder of the hyperinflation in Germany following the First World War.

The Black Horse rider carries scales which indicate a need for him to measure the food supply for rationing: “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”

The wheat and barley represent a day’s food, the oil and wine indicate great wealth that is unaffected by the collapse, which perfectly describes Venezuela’s 53-year-old president, Nicolás Maduro, whose net worth is over 2 million.

Israel Police hold back right-wing Jewish activists of the 'Temple Mount Faithful' movement outside the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City, on April 10, 2016. (Corina Kern/Flash90)

The Times of Israel: “All hell broke loose Tuesday on the Temple Mount as two white-clad Jewish men prostrated themselves in an overt act of worship. Face down on the ground, the men were immediately surrounded by a mix of Border and Israel Police — and an encroaching crowd of angry Muslim men and Jordanian Waqf officials.

The police, wearing bullet-proof vests and armed with stun grenades and tear gas, whisked the two men from the melee. A short brawl between Israeli forces and Muslim men ensued, and a total of eight men were ejected from the Temple Mount — or Haram al-Sharif as it is known to Muslims — before things returned to “normal.”

Opinion:  The control of the Temple Mount was given to the Muslim Mufti after the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967. There is nothing on this planet that will inflame both Jew and Arab like this spot where two Jewish Temples once stood.

The second intifada began with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s visit to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in 2000, and the bloodshed continued until 2005. The death toll, including both military and civilian, is estimated to be about 3,000 Palestinians and 1,000 Israelis, as well as 64 foreigners.

Three Abrahamic religions claim the Temple Mount:

Judaism: According to Genesis 22:1–14, God told Abraham to bring his son Isaac to Moriah (Temple Mount) and offer him as a sacrifice on a mountain there.

King David had identified the Temple Mount as the place for worshiping God because it was here the plague was stayed when he confessed his sin, and he purchased the place so he could build an altar (1 Chronicles 21:18–26).

2 Samuel 2:24 “David bought the threshing floor and the oxen and paid fifty shekels of silver … “

Two Jewish temples stood in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount and the Bible indicates that a third temple will stand there as well (Ez. 37: 26-28; Dan. 9:27; Micah 4:1-7; Zech. 6:12; Mat. 24:15; 2 Thess. 2:3-4; Rev. 11:1-2).

Islam: Quran (Surah 17:1), claims that Mohammed tied his horse on the Temple Mount before his midnight journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and back.

Christianity: (Catholicism): In 2014, the Vatican pressed Israel to follow through on a years-old proposal to give the Church control over the compound that houses the traditional “Hall of the Last Supper”, despite the fact the same compound also houses the “Tomb of David,” a holy site revered and frequented by religious Jews.

The Vatican also claims that Mary, mother of Jesus, was assumed into heaven from the foot of the nearby Mount of Olives.

Bible Prophecy (future): “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.” Zechariah 12:2-3

The final wars of this age will be over the this spot:

“And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile…” Ezekiel 43:7

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near.”  Luke 21:20

Washington Examiner: “The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in 2015 decided not to deport but release 19,723 criminal illegal immigrants, including 208 convicted of murder, over 900 convicted of sex crimes and 12,307 of drunk driving, according to new government numbers.

Overall, those released into virtually every state and territory of America had a total of 64,197 convictions among them, for an average of 3.25 convictions each, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies. ICE also said that the group were convicted of 8,234 violent crimes.”

Opinion: Is your head spinning? Does it feel like the world is upside down?

It is supposed to feel that way. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 tells us that in the last days perilous times would come and Jesus used the metaphor of the birth pangs (Matthew 24:8) that build in frequency and intensity so that each generation would understand the signs of the last days.

More than 80,000 people crossed the US border illegally since October. This includes unaccompanied children and family members from Central America and Mexico, and if you read our posts from yesterday, you would know that illegal aliens are now called “safe alternative pathways” and when one of them commits a crime they are called  “justice involved youth”.

I feel like we have a free ticket to the greatest story ever told. The Old Testament has over 350 perfectly fulfilled prophecies about the First Coming of Jesus and over 500 His Second Coming. In the New Testament, one out of every twenty-five verses refers to either the rapture of the church or to Christ’s coming to reign over the world.

Awesome.

The Times of Israel: “Young Palestinian children participating in a festival in the Gaza Strip this week wore military fatigues, and brandished toy knives and machine guns as they performed a play simulating violence against Israelis.

One short clip of the play aired on Channel 2 on Tuesday shows a young girl armed with a knife attempting to free a Palestinian prisoner from Israeli jail by stabbing the guards. She is shot and falls to the ground amid cries and screams from the audience. Other little girls then approach and cry over her “body.”

Opinion: The evil that has plagued the chosen people came from inside Abraham’s own family. It is relentless.

A few examples:

  • Exodus 17:8-16  War with Amalek (Esau’s grandson) at Rephidim
  • 2 Chronicles 20: 1, 23-24  War with Edom (Esau), Ammon and Moab (sons of Abraham’s nephew Lot)
  • Judges 7:19-23 Gideon’s (son of Abraham and Keturah) battle with the Midianites
  • Esther 9:1-5 The descendants of Esau in Persia

The same enemy of Israel is evident in 7 Arab/Egyptian wars since 1948:

  • 1948 War of Independence
  • 1956 Sinai War
  • 1967 Six-Day War
  • 1968 War of Attrition
  • 1973 Yom Kippur War
  • 2006 Lebanon War
  • 2014 War with Hamas

The same enemy will come against Israel in the future:

  • Psalm 83
  • Ezekiel 38
  • Armageddon

And the promise of victory that God gave to Moses, Jehoshaphat, Gideon, and Esther will be again:

“Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. Tomorrow go down against them.  You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you” 2 Chronicles 2:14-17.

Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place.” Luke 21:32

That generation is us.
