Bill Salus: King Cyrus, President Trump, Ayatollah Khamenei and Bible Prophecy The most famous Iranian King identified in the Bible is CYRUS THE GREAT, the KING of PERSIA. He remains so popular that presently a religious group in Israel, known as the Sanhedrin, is minting a special coin with King Cyrus on it for their 70-year anniversary this year. The coin will also have the face of US President Donald Trump on it because the Israelis are thankful to both King Cyrus and President Trump for being so helpful to Israel. The Bible predicted the future of Persian King Cyrus, but does it also predict the future of Iran's present supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei?

'Army of Islam' Would be World's Biggest Military
WASHINGTON - When Turkey's semi-official newspaper Yeni Safak called for urgent action in forming a 57-nation "Army of Islam" to besiege and attack Israel, a suggestion undoubtedly approved with at least a wink and nod by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, it would signal the possible intent to create the largest military force on the planet - one nearly as large as the total population of the Jewish state.

Jewish activist: 'Anti-Semitism is absolutely getting worse'
Cindy Grosz, a pro-Israel and education activist rejected claims that it was the Trump administration that brought a rise in anti-Semitism. Suggesting that Trump is anti-Semitic is not just an attack on him but is also "an attack on everybody on the right, from Ted Cruz to Rand Paul to anybody. Anybody and everybody, for the most part, that we offer on a Republican Conservative ticket has a proven voting record and track record of relationships with Christian and Jewish Zionists," stressed Grosz. Anti-Semitism "is absolutely getting worse", she warned, "because the mainstream media will not document and tell the truth and because the money from people like George Soros, who fund the teachers' unions, have a better ability to get a message out."
'Insanity' to believe Jesus is the only way, says pastor It used to be assumed that if you claimed to be a Baptist, you believed what the Bible says about Jesus being the only way to come to the Father - but that's not the case at a Baptist megachurch in New York City. Pastor Michael Walrond has grown First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem from 350 members to over 10,000 in the last 14 years. The church calls them "disciples" - but with theology like this, which goes against fundamental Christian orthodoxy, it's unlikely they'll become disciples of Jesus.
"John 14:6: I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one comes to the Father but by me. We're living in days where that's considered exclusionary. But the truth of the matter is, Jesus said those words."

This terrifying vision of the future isn't a fringe theory, but one that's gaining traction.

Ann Coulter: Amazing Breakthrough to Reduce Mass Shootings!
Thanks to our Second Amendment, the United States has fewer mass shootings per capita than many other developed countries, including Norway, France, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium and the Czech Republic. (And 98 percent of our mass shootings occur in "gun-free zones.")
