“In this context, most worrisome to me is the persistent flirtation by the President of the United States, throughout his campaign and soon thereafter, with a return to torture. We are now told the US Army field manual will not be redrafted, and the US Secretary of Defence is guiding the White House on this. For now there is little danger of a return to the practice of so-called “enhanced interrogation techniques,” a euphemism that dupes no one. The mood in the US could of course change dramatically, if the country were at some stage to experience a gruesome terrorist attack. And, mindful of how the American public has, over the last ten years, become far more accepting of torture, the balance could be tipped in favour of its practice – and destroy the delicate position the Convention Against Torture is in.” –Source
Now do you see why students of prophecy understood as we did during the Trump campaign when he and the Pope butted heads that is was nothing more than a negative propaganda campaign designed to pull the onus off the Pope and how he will still have complete control over US policy because prophecy will be fulfilled? And the fact Trump and His Roman Catholic wife met with the Pope in May and had nothing but praises for him shows it’s all politics. Nothing more nothing less. Continue reading
“Two street preachers have today been convicted of a public order offence, after a public prosecutor claimed that publicly quoting parts of the King James Bible in modern Britain should “be considered to be abusive and is a criminal matter.” Prosecutor Ian Jackson also told the court that “although the words preached are included in a version of the Bible in 1611, this does not mean that they are incapable of amounting to a public order offence in 2016. …this prosecution is nothing more than a modern-day heresy trial – dressed up under the Public Order Act.”” –Source
Still think I’m crazy because I stated for the last few decades that free speech will be removed from Christians and the Bible will become not only hate speech, but illegal to quote in public? In this case it’s all about not reciting Bible verses that declare other faiths or other gods to be unwise, not to mention Islam or homosexuality. And any student of prophecy can tell you right off who is behind that religio/political act of protecting the false gods of this world can we not? Continue reading
Pope Francis appealed Wednesday for the Rohingya, a Muslim minority group forced to flee violence and persecution in Myanmar.
The pope singled out the group during his weekly audience at the Vatican, asking pilgrims to pray with him “for our Rohingya brothers and sisters who are being chased from Myanmar and are fleeing from one place to another because no one wants them.”
“They are good people, they are not Christians, they are peaceful people, they are our brothers and sisters. And for years they have been suffering. They are being tortured and killed, simply because they uphold their Muslim faith,” Francis said as he marked the church’s International Day of Prayer and Awareness Against Human Trafficking.

In a recent attack, some 90 Muslims stormed a Christian church in eastern Uganda, beating and tying up the men present before raping 15 of the Christian women.
The assault was reportedly a “revenge attack” against the pastor of the Katira church for allegedly converting Muslims to Christianity. Along with the violence perpetrated against the congregation, the mob also carried off the pastor, the Rev. Moses Mutasa, and severely damaged the church property.
According to a member of the congregation who escaped from the church, one of the attackers shouted, “Away with the pastor who is converting our Muslims to Christianity.” After the attack, church members also found leaflets accusing the pastor of converting Muslims and threatening more attacks.

“Massimo Introvigne, Director of the Centre for Studies on New Religions (Cesnur), told Vatican Radio that around half a billion Christians in the world are unable to express their faith completely freely, while around 90,000 – one every six minutes – died for their faith in the past year alone. Referring to statistics from the Centre for the Study of Global Christianity, Mr Introvigne said around 70 per cent of Christians murdered in 2016 died in tribal conflicts in Africa. These deaths were included, he said, because very often they involved Christians who refuse to take up arms for reasons of conscience.” –Source
<And that is why the Muslims under direction of Rome kill the Christians. It’s also why we see the politicians and most so called “Christians” in America supporting Chrislam in their own churches. Cowards always have the same reasons for their cowardice. Cowards always target Christians because they feel their love for them is weakness and so they make easy victims. The Vatican knows how easy it was to kill hundreds of millions during the prophesied “Great Tribulation” Jesus spoke of, and so their loyal pawns in Islam today do the same figuring the gentle Christians are an easy target. Fact is what the cowards in Rome, Islam and in the SDA and other churches that declare “Allah is God” don’t seem to realize is, real Christians don’t fear death at all. The obedient Christian knows we will get up again never to die for all eternity. Christians also know it is far more courageous to stand in the truth as it is proclaimed in Jesus Christ and be obedient even unto death than it is to beat on someone who loves you so much they refuse to even strike back knowing to do so will harm you.

The Hungarian government has established a new office on the persecution of Christians to address both persecutions of Christians in the Middle East and the subtle forms of discrimination some Christians face in Europe.
Zoltan Balog, the Hungarian Minister for Human Capacities, explained the new office. His ministry oversees the newly established sub-secretariat on the persecution of Christians.
“Today, Christianity has become the most persecuted religion, where out of five people killed out of religious reasons, four of them are Christians,” Balog told CNA. “In 81 countries around the world Christians are persecuted and 200 million Christians live in areas where they are discriminated against. Millions of Christian lives are threatened by followers of radical religious ideologies.” Continue reading
Cuba (MNN) — Over the last few years, United States and Cuban relations have improved — to an extent. But it turns out what we see in the United States isn’t the whole picture.
Patrick Klein of Vision Beyond Borders says while there’s an outside perception of growing freedom, there is actually growing religious persecution in Cuba.
“We’re given the impression by the media in America, the mainstream media, that Cuba’s opening up, and with the relationship with America that things are better.”
After the United States reopened the U.S. Embassy in Cuba about a year ago, John Kerry said the United States would keep pushing for democracy in Cuba.
Klein says this comment was not well received. The Cuban government has no intentions of leaving communism. With mounted pressure, Klein says they looked for someone to blame.
“The backlash actually came against the Church,” he says. Continue reading
The so-called Islamic State will not stop until it has “exterminated” all other religious groups, according to a former Islamic extremist now working in counter-terrorism.
“They’re on a mission – a programme of extermination – to wipe out everyone else,” said Shiraz Maher, a former member of Islamist group Hizbut Tahrir, speaking this week in London as he promoted his book, “Salafi-Jihadism: The History of an Idea”.
Maher said wiping out Christians, in particular, is a “very important part” of IS’s ideology. He said that although they were “religious amateurs” with “weak theology”, their claim to have restored the Caliphate – by appointing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as “God’s representative on earth” – has given them a strong position, which leaves other Muslims with a choice: reject that claim or to “do whatever he says”.

“The American Bar Association has adopted a new rule it says will crack down on discriminatory conduct in the legal profession, but conservative critics warn the real goal is to silence views contrary to the group’s liberal orthodoxy on gender identity and sexual orientation and drum attorneys who hold those views out of business. …It is professional misconduct for a lawyer to: (g) “Engage in conduct that the lawyer knows or reasonably should know is harassment of discrimination harass or discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status or socioeconomic status in conduct related to the practice of law. …This is an attempt to silence Christians in the legal profession. The main drivers of it are LGBT activists trying to eliminate religious liberty defenses on matters pertaining to same-sex marriage and also transgenderism, to purge observant Christians from the legal profession” –Source
So many scoffers stated out loud and bold (and still do) that students of prophecy as well as some that actually understand the movements of the shadow government running things in the US Courts were insane for assuming homosexual laws will make Christians into third class citizens, less able to find work, keep businesses open, preach the Bible or even have a voice in society in general and yes we will also see certain freedoms in life completely removed due to our faith.
