  • Modeh Ani: Start Your Day Off Right

    Sefaria.Org ^ | Unknown | Meital Lindenberg
    "I give thanks to You living and everlasting King for You have restored my soul with mercy. Great is Your faithfulness." How do we start our day? The first words we say in the morning are Modeh Ani - literally translated as "Thankful am I". The prayer is a statement that 'I' (Ani) give thanks (Modeh) to G-d. But why does it say Thankful am I and not I am thankful? Wouldn't that make more sense? Why are the words switched? The very first word that comes out of our mouths should be one of gratitude. We often spend the...

    Since 2008 our website has offered a compendium of prophetic events that will affect our future and change the shape of our world. This year the waves of change are tumultuous and the near future promises to get even more distressing. How much time is left – can we say? There is only a very short distance between Israel’s October 7 and the entire world’s track into Revelation 20:4.
  • Et Tu, Brute?

    Literary Devices ^ | ? | Lierary Devices
    Origin of Et Tu, Brute “Et Tu, Brute?” are perhaps the most popular three words ever written, uttered in literature, and then quoted in different contexts. This phrase also comes from the genius of Shakespeare. It occurs in his play, Julius Caesar, (Act-III, Scene-I, Lines, 77). Julius Caesar utters this phrase as his last words, addressing his close friend, Brutus, in the play. However, the history does not seem to support this, as it is a widely debated subject among historians and dramatists alike. Like so many other countless phrases, Shakespeare vouchsafed this phrase an everlasting life after using it...

    Pope Francis has kicked conservative US Cardinal Raymond Burke out of his Vatican apartment and stripped him of his salary after he criticized the pontiff's pro-LGBT stance. Francis has decided to punish Burke by revoking his right to a subsidized Vatican apartment and salary in the second such radical action against an American prelate this month, according to two sources. It is understood Francis told a meeting of the heads of Vatican offices last week that he was moving against Burke because he was a source of 'disunity' in the church, said one of the participants at the November 20...

    “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad And where better to kick off that agenda than in New York City? The Muslim American Society, Samidoun, designated as a terrorist group, and other pro-terror hate groups have put out flyers threatening to “Flood the Tree Lightning for Gaza”. The “flood” reference is to Al Aqsa Flood: the Hamas name for the atrocities of Oct 7. The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting...

    A traditional Catholic family was allegedly “dragged out of their home at gunpoint, handcuffed and locked in a van” earlier this year after the FBI “goaded” their 15-year-old son to post “offensive memes” online. The teen, a volunteer firefighter and altar boy, was then hospitalized on mental health pretenses, according to his father, Jeremiah Rufini.

    Influential Iowa evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the 2024 Republican primary race last week, and former President Donald Trump wasn’t happy. Vander Platts, who reportedly voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020, responded equally fiercely on X, formerly Twitter. In one post, Vander Plaats said Iowa “will exhibit higher standards when they choose @RonDeSantis over a Chump.” Just returned from an Iowa stronghold for @realDonaldTrump Person to Person told me they are done with him.

    In the late 1980s, a group of academics, including Judith Butler, Gayle Rubin, Sandy Stone, and Susan Stryker, established the disciplines of “queer theory” and “transgender studies.” These academics believed gender to be a “social construct” used to oppress racial and sexual minorities, and they denounced the traditional categories of man and woman as a false binary that was conceived to support the system of “heteronormativity”—i.e., the white, male, heterosexual power structure. This system, they argued, had to be ruthlessly deconstructed. And the best way to achieve this, they argued further, was to promote transgenderism. If men can become women,...

    ALEXANDRIA, VA - In an effort to root out racism, the Salvation Army announced they will no longer be accepting any donations in the form of bills or coins that have white people on them."Ever since we learned that racism is everywhere, all the time, ingrained in every aspect of life, we realized most U.S. currency depict the faces of white men who only did evil, racist things in their lives," said the Commander-in-Chief of the Salvation Army, Clurvis Bellman.

    In the coming decade, Carl Trueman wrote recently, every single church still calling itself Christian will face a choice: Do we follow Scriptural revelation, or the Sexual Revolution? Catechism, or culture? In the world, or of the world? The cross, or the rainbow flag? Mainline Protestantism has, for the most part, cast its lot in with the LGBT movement, with their clergy serving primarily as a convenient way for LGBT activists to accuse pastors who still hold to Christian orthodoxy of bigotry. (If those Christians can cave and still call themselves Christian, why can’t you?) These days, you can identify...

    The transgender movement is pressing its agenda everywhere. Most publicly, activist teachers are using classrooms to propagandize on its behalf and activist health professionals are promoting the mutilation of children under the euphemistic banner of “gender-affirming care.” The sudden and pervasive rise of this movement provokes two questions: where did it come from, and how has it proved so successful? The story goes deeper than most Americans know.In the late 1980s, a group of academics, including Judith Butler, Gayle Rubin, Sandy Stone, and Susan Stryker, established the disciplines of “queer theory” and “transgender studies.” These academics believed gender to be...

    Do not be deceived when Muslims claim to “Believe in Jesus.” Muslim influencers, including the controversial YouTuber Sohail (WAYOFLIFESQ) with an extensive following of nearly 1.5 million, frequently employ deceptive tactics when engaging with Christians. Their goal is to create an illusion that the Jesus portrayed in the Quran is the same as the Jesus in the Bible, albeit not the same person, while simultaneously asserting that the Quran provides a more authentic portrayal of Jesus. However, beneath this surface similarity lies a calculated divergence. The Quranic Jesus doesn’t speak the same words, nor does he engage in similar actions—his...
