    Fellowship Bible Chapel ^ | 4/16/17 | John Haller
    On this Resurrection Morning, John begins his prophetic bombing run by exposing the conversion of Hank Hannagraff (The Bible Answer Man) to Eastern Orthodoxy, followed by strafing runs on the beliefs of those who call themselves "Christian", plus Frankie Schaeffer (son of the great apologist Frances Schaeffer) who adds to the emergent church movement by embracing spiritual mysticism and liturgy. Appropriately, he then acquires and targets the cup of trembling that we know as Israel, recognizing her taking of the Temple Mount in 1967, and the upcoming 50 year celebration in the land recognizing that achievement. To wrap up, he...
  • WHY Did The United States Really Topple LIBYA – Same Reason They Want To Topple ASSAD?

    Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama, seems to have gotten away with all her crimes against the American people. Of course, it was not just the American people she betrayed There are many around the world whose suffering has been revived by Clinton. When she and Obama toppled Muammar Qaddafi in Libya, they invited in a new modern day slavery. The ISIS invasion brought with it a revival of human trafficking, slavery, and flesh markets. I think the word “freed” was what she did for the Libyan people after brutally murdering Qaddafi. That “freedom” brought Libya...
  • Why the War on Yemen Is Ignored

    The American Conservative ^ | 2016 | by Daniel Larison
    Amanda Taub tries to explain why the war on Yemen is mostly ignored and Syria’s conflict is not: Conflicts gain sustained American attention only when they provide a compelling story line that appeals to both the public and political actors, and for reasons beyond the human toll. That often requires some combination of immediate relevance to American interests, resonance with American political debates or cultural issues, and, perhaps most of all, an emotionally engaging frame of clearly identifiable good guys and bad guys [bold mine-DL]. Most wars — including those in South Sudan, Sri Lanka and, yes, Yemen — do...

    New airstrikes have targeted a town in northwest Syria that was hit by a deadly chemical attack earlier this week, activists said. It wasn't immediately clear who conducted the strikes on Khan Sheikhoun, which hit on Friday and Saturday, though only Russian and Syrian regime aircraft have been bombing that area of rebel-held Idlib province.

    Since the Brown vs. Board of Education, the public school system has made it a point to limit, ban, discourage, shut down, and criticize any expression of the Christian faith in the classroom or on the school grounds. Citing the non-existent "Separation of Church and State" clause, they debunk any and all efforts to speak or act freely in accordance with one's sincerely held religious beliefs. Until now. Enter "Access Islam", an approved curriculum being taught in many schools with the endorsement of educators everywhere. As John points out in this week's message entitled "End Time and Middle East Stupidity",...

    ABC’s This Week went off the rails Sunday morning as fill-in host Martha Raddatz assaulted U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley with ridiculous questions about Russia, and at one point insinuated that she doesn’t speak for the U.S. “And you mentioned this. President Trump has said he respects Putin. But you say you don't trust him. You've said the U.S. needs to take hacking seriously. President Trump has been dismissive of it,” Raddatz prefaced before chided, “Which one of you should our allies and adversaries believe?” Raddatz’s dismissal of the Ambassador borderlines on contempt of her position, and was...

    In this week's update entitled "Times of the Signs" John explores several pertinent topics, including the question of the Mark of the Beast, the terror attack in England (and the subsequent left-leaning commentary which gets destroyed by a free-thinking commentator in a video John shows) as well as the issues facing Israel. The situation in Israel, the proposed two-state solution and the constant battering of her people on the issue of human rights has finally reached a pinnacle at the UN. Watch and smile as a speaker takes to task several countries and addresses the UN President, asking "Where are...

    Jordan's Minister of State for Media Affairs, Mohammad Momani, said Saturday that a U.S. presidential envoy will attend the 28th Arab Summit to be held in Jordan starting on Wednesday. Momani said in a press conference that a French envoy will attend the summit as well. He added that contacts are currently being held through the Jordanian embassy in Washington to arrange the meetings that the American envoy will hold during the summit. Momani noted that the Arab world is interested in holding the Arab Summit in order to convey a message to the world that Muslims are a nation...

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said extremists were seeking "innovative methods" to bring down jets. Bombs could be hidden in laptops, tablets, cameras, DVD players and electronic games, it said. The measure will affect nine airlines operating out of 10 airports.

Phones are exempt from the new rules The nine airlines affected are: â—¾Royal Jordanian â—¾Egypt Air â—¾Turkish Airlines â—¾Saudi Arabian Airlines â—¾Kuwait Airways â—¾Royal Air...

    Iraqi paramilitary forces announced Saturday that they had discovered a mass grave at Badush prison near Mosul containing the remains of hundreds of people executed by ISIS. ISIS reportedly killed up to 600 people after seizing the jail in 2014, and was also said to have held hundreds of kidnapped women from Iraq’s Yazidi minority at the facility. The Iraqi military said that forces from the Hashed al-Shaabi -- an umbrella group of pro-government forces that are dominated by Iran-backed Shiite militias -- were among the units that recaptured the prison from the extremists.

    Tony Blair has attended a secret meeting at the White House to discuss working for Donald Trump, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. The former Prime Minister held talks with Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner on Wednesday with a view to becoming a Middle East peace envoy for Trump. This newspaper has learned that Blair and Kushner have met three times in secret since September, including their three-hour summit in the West Wing last week. If Trump gives Blair the new role, it would mark an astonishing international comeback for the man whose reputation was left in tatters...

  • The Purge of Christians across the Middle East: Where are the Protestors?

    In what must surely be one of the most disturbing massacres of people in recent years, the usual suspect protestors have kept their silence. The Christian population of Middle Eastern countries has fallen sharply over the last ten years (CNN suggests that in the city of Mosul, the Christian population has dropped from around 35,000 to 20), and while some of this can be explained by families fleeing violence and danger, the amount of Christians slaughtered for not being Muslim is alarming. In Iraq the Christian population has fallen from 1.4 million to under 300,000 in a decade. The picture...

    Critics of Israel persist in the contention that the existence of Israeli settlements is a core, even the main, impediment to peace and to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute. Once again, in the U.N. Security Council's Resolution 2334 of December 23, 2016, which was passed by a vote of 14-0, with the U.S. abstaining and therefore allowing it to pass, the settlements were held to be illegal. They have been held innumerable times, though incorrectly, in international forums to be violations of the Fourth Geneva Convention, Article 49, and The Hague Convention of 1907. Ignoring the refusal of...

    WASHINGTON – A draft of President Donald Trump's revised immigration ban targets the same seven countries listed in his original executive order and exempts travelers who already have a visa to travel to the U.S., even if they haven't used it yet. A senior administration official said the order, which Trump revised after federal courts held up his original immigration and refugee ban, will target only those same seven Muslim-majority countries -- Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya. The official said that green-card holders and dual citizens of the U.S. and any of those countries are exempt. The...

    At least 72 convicted terrorists came from the seven countries President Trump targeted in his extreme vetting executive order, according to a new report this weekend that directly undercut part of the courts’ rulings halting the program. Seventeen of those entered the U.S. under the refugee program that Mr. Trump has said is of special concern to him, according to the data compiled by the Senate Judiciary Committee and analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies.
