Bill Salus: Spiritual Showdowns Are Happening NOW! The time for the Lord to uphold His holy name through the nation of Israel draws near! The world is about to receive this powerful wakeup call and be given the golden opportunity to offer their adoration to the covenant keeping God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob. The promise keeping God whose great love caused Him to send His only begotten son Jesus Christ as an offering for mankind's sins.
The stage is presently being set for this main event described in Ezekiel 39:7. Prophecies are readying for their fulfillment, and spiritual showdowns throughout the globe are taking place NOW in preparation! The God of the Bible is currently challenging all of His god competitors to prove their worthiness of worship. The Lord is flushing them out and forcing them to disprove His multiple biblically declared claims, like in Isaiah 46:9-10, to be the one and only true God!
The Death of Free Speech Four in 10 young Americans have no idea what America is.
That's the takeaway from a new Pew Research poll showing that 40 percent of Americans aged 18-34 say that the government should be able to prevent people from making "statements that are offensive to minority groups." This same group of young people has granted broad awareness to the culture of "microaggression", unintended slights taken as grave insults by their victims; they've also called for "trigger warnings," alerts that certain communications may dredge up unpleasant past memories or ideas. With such ghoulish cruelties haunting the most privileged generation in human history, naturally we'd want to toss out the bedrock of Western civilization: The right to debate, to express unpopular opinions. We wouldn't want to offend.
Unless, of course, we do.
ACLU brings lawsuit against governor for refusing Syrian refugees Gov. Mike Pence is facing a federal lawsuit that challenges his power to block Syrian refugees from resettling in Indiana.
The lawsuit, filed Monday night, accuses Pence of violating the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution by accepting refugees from other countries but not those from Syria. It comes a week after the Indiana governor, and many of his counterparts around the country, suspended the resettlement of Syrian refugees in their states following terrorist attacks in Paris.
'There is no future for Jews in Europe' "As Jews, we already know the situation and know what terrorists are like," Rabbi Guigui added, reflecting that the attack on the Jewish Museum in Brussels was just over a year and a half ago. "Until today the Belgians thought that terrorism threatens only the Jews or the police, [but now they] understand that [any] Belgian can be a terror target. Anyone and everyone can be a victim of jihadists."
China joins the war on ISIS. Can you say WWIII? On the heels of ISIS claiming to have executed a Chinese national, Fan Jinghui, 50, and the news that three Chinese nationals were killed in the Mali attack, China appears to have entered the war on terror. Chinese president Xi Jinping said he would "crack down" on violent terrorist operations and join the war against the Islamic State.
EXCLUSIVE... Islamic State: 'The Threat to the United States' The report notes that "ISIS is a fully-fledged insurgency" and has been able to achieve far more than Al Qaeda has in its past. In such a short amount of time, ISIS has been able to recruit a force of tens-of-thousands of jihadis while also controlling territory, a feat that Al Qaeda has never accomplished by itself.
Report: Interactive Map Shows Radical Mosques Across U.S. While French and Belgian officials are calling for the "dissolution" of all radical mosques in their countries, respectively, the Obama administration has remained deafeningly silent concerning the nearly 100 U.S.-based mosques currently known to be hotbeds of Islamic extremism.
Democratic Ohio Senator: White Men With Guns Also Terrorists Joining the chorus of Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, who recently said he is more frightened by white guys with guns than Syrian refugees, is Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) who said white men with guns are more of a threat than Middle Eastern terrorists.

First Iranian fighter jets over Syria alongside Russian bombers A series of videos apparently leaked by the Russian Defense Ministry reveal the presence of Iranian F-14 and MiG -29 fighters in Syrian skies for the first time. They were shown by "The Aviationist," Italian magazine, escorting heavy Russian bombers, including the Tupolev TU-160, the heaviest, fastest and most destructive bomber ever built, on missions no more than 150 km from Israel's northern border.
Putin in Tehran for first time in eight years Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived Monday in Tehran for talks with Iran about the devastating conflict in Syria where the two nations are allied in support of the authoritarian Damascus regime.
White House Gave ISIS 45 Minute Warning Before Bombing Oil Tankers "Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: air strikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life," the leaflet reads.
The leaflet drops are justified under the premise that the oil tanker drivers might be civilians and not ISIS recruits, although it's an explanation that doesn't wash with critics.
Putin to Meet Iran's Khamenei in Tehran on Monday Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei during a visit to Tehran on Monday, the Kremlin said, as Moscow goes on a diplomatic push over the Syria conflict.
Talks with Iran's leadership will focus on "issues in bilateral relations, including atomic energy, oil and gas and military-technical cooperation," Putin's top foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov said Friday.
Hillary stresses Muslims have absolutely nothing to do with terrorism Leading Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is continuing her support of Islam as a nonviolent and accepting religion in the wake of the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris, where the Islamic State killed 129 and injured more than 350.
"Let's be clear: Islam is not our adversary," Clinton tweeted Thursday while forwarding her campaign of tolerance heading into the election year. "Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."
And So It Begins... Islam is on the move. Emboldened by a weak and even supportive American president, the promised attacks on anyone not Muslim has begun. It doesn't matter if they are French or American, the victims are not Muslim and that's all that matters.
REPORT: 8 Syrians Caught at Texas Border in Laredo "Agent Garza further stated that in matters as sensitive as Syrians crossing the border from Mexico, it would be highly unlikely that federal agencies would publicize it or inform a broad group of law enforcement."
Paris attacks took place amidst strict gun control laws and open borders The arsenal of weapons deployed by the eight attackers who terrorised Paris on Friday night underlined France's gun control problems and raised the spectre of further attacks.
The country has extremely strict weapons laws, but Europe's open borders and growing trade in illegal weapons means assault rifles are relatively easy to come by on the black market.
Hezbollah has 150,000 missiles pointed at Israel An updated Israeli security assessment has placed the missile arsenal of Hezbollah, the Iranian Shi'ite terror proxy in Lebanon, as much higher than the previously thought 100,000 rockets, which was already roughly ten times more than those in Hamas's possession.
Rujm el-Hiri: Stonehenge of The Golan Heights It may be one of the Middle East's most mysterious structures, but it's easy to miss from the roadside.
The prehistoric stone monument of Rujm el-Hiri, or Gilgal Refaim, went unnoticed for centuries in a bare expanse of field in the disputed region of the Golan Heights.
EU to Label Products From Israeli 'Settlements,' Israel Fights Back Imagine if products on your retail store shelves were labeled "made by Jews." Clearly, such a move would be considered highly offensive if not completely reminiscent of the yellow arm-bands, Stars of David, and other ways in which Jewish people and businesses were stigmatized during the Holocaust.
EVIL... Wendy Davis: I Aborted My Daughter 'Out of Love' In an interview with Mic reporter Elizabeth Plank Tuesday, Davis opened up about her past abortion, calling it the most compassionate thing she could have done for her baby daughter, while skewering anyone who would deprive her of that choice as "disgusting."
El Nino Could Devastate Grain Markets Amid Global Drought El Nino could have a bigger impact on grain and oilseed markets than drought in Russia and Ukraine, which may be alleviated before the crucial spring growth period, analysts said on Wednesday.
"You can't have a drought problem overnight," David Hightower, president of research firm The Hightower Report, said of conditions in Russia and Ukraine.
Manufactured racism under the post-racial president It's a good thing America has a post-racial, (half) black president and racist incidents have ended in this country.
Except that not only have they not ended, claims of racial incidents may be more prevalent today than at any time since the 1960s.
What we're really seeing is whole new crop of race hucksters. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, step aside. There are new players, new media and new tactics.
Kerry: 'I Am Determined to Restore U.S. Funding to (Pro-Palestinian) UNESCO' The United States was re-elected to the executive board of the U.N. Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization's on Wednesday, despite having withheld funds from the organization for four years. Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated his determination to get Congress to relent and restore funding.
Now at Vanderbilt: Conservative Professor Targeted by "Offended" Students The safe spaces of students at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee are being threatened by a black conservative professor of law who is outspoken about her Christian and conservative beliefs. And before they crush under the pressure of a different worldview from their own, students are hoping to exterminate the threat before they are scarred for life.
School to homeschoolers: Sign up or face criminal charges
A number of homeschool parents in Florida have been ordered by a public school district to register their children in classes within three days or face "criminal prosecution" under state law.
A meeting within the next week likely will determine whether school officials will face a lawsuit in response to the threat.
Before exploring the NOW Prophecies, it is important to discuss our present placement on God's calendar of events. Unquestionably, the most important prophetic information for every generation is the knowledge of its whereabouts on the Lord's prophetic timeline. Isaiah 46:9-10, informs us that there exists a definite beginning and end, so the question is where are we now?
Russian military surge in Syria: More helicopters, first "volunteer" combatants After the downing of the Russian airliner over Sinai on Oct. 31, Moscow moved into positon to lead the offensive against the Islamic State in Syria. The Russian air force transferred a large number of assault helicopters out of its enclave in Latakia province over to two Syrian air bases east of Homs on the front lines against ISIS, debkafile's military sources report.
The Fig Tree Parable for the Final Generation "Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see ALL THESE THINGS, know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till ALL THESE THINGS take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away." (Matthew 24:32-35)
Kuwait 'at war' with Israel Kuwait, the nation rescued by the United States from Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's invasion in the first Gulf war some 25 years ago, is "at war" with America's major Middle East ally, Israel.
US Defense Secretary: 'I Wouldn't Take for Granted That the Russians and Iranians Are Aligned' Defense Secretary Ashton Carter argued at the Reagan Defense Forum on Saturday that Russia and China pose a "potentially more damaging" threat than terrorist groups like ISIS because of "their size and capabilities."
"Russia appears intent to play spoiler by flouting these principles and the international community. Meanwhile, China is a rising power, and growing more ambitious in its objectives and capabilities," Carter said. "Of course, neither Russia nor China can overturn that order, given its resilience and staying power. But both present different challenges for it."
No good news in the Mid East for Obama or Netanyahu when they meet Monday After more than a year, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu meets President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday, Nov. 9, with the deck heavily stacked against him, and not just because of the Islamic State, which is a universal bane, or Obama's Iran policy - or even the evaporation of the peace process with the Palestinians. This time, Netanyahu is not getting a dressing-down over the disappearance of the two-state solution, because even the US president has decided to shelve it for the remainder of his presidency which ends in January 2017.
Patriarch of Antioch: Muslims to Conquer Europe With Religion and Procreation n a stunning interview, the Maronite patriarch of Antioch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros al-Rahi, has contended that Islam has a clear, two-pronged strategy to take over Europe: religion and procreation. The cardinal said that Muslims look on Christians as weak and believe that since they have no children and barely practice their faith, Islam will easily conquer them. Sadly, he said, Muslims take their faith more seriously than most Christians, and they are gaining ground because of it.
The New World Order and its open border gambit The global elite want a world without borders.
Why? Borders denote a certain culture, sovereignty, nationalism and a sense of individualism. A country's people can be united for a common purpose when under attack, but a people forced together without a common purpose and with divided interests can be easily divided and enslaved.
Senator Blasts TPP As "Global Governance" The enormous agreement (over 5,500 pages), which had been negotiated over the past several years in strictest secrecy and kept tightly under wraps until now (see here and here), "confirms our fears," said Sessions, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest. According to Sessions: "The predictable and surely desired result of the TPP is to put greater distance between the governed and those who govern. It puts those who make the rules out of reach of those who live under them, empowering unelected regulators who cannot be recalled or voted out of office. In turn, it diminishes the power of the people's bulwark: their constitutionally-formed Congress."
Our World: Showdown at the OK Corral Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting with US President Barack Obama next week is likely to look less like a rapprochement than a showdown at the OK Corral. Two weeks ago, The Wall Street Journal published a fairly detailed account of the US's massive spying operations against Israel between 2010 and 2012. Their purpose was to prevent Israel from attacking Iran's nuclear installations.
Why Palestinians Do Not Want Cameras on the Temple Mount This is the question that many in Jordan have been asking in light of the recent agreement between Israel and Jordan that was reached under the auspices of US Secretary of State John Kerry. The idea was first raised by Jordan's King Abdullah in a bid to ease tensions at the holy site in the Old City of Jerusalem.
Hamtramck, Michigan Is 1st American City To Elect MUSLIM MAJORITY CITY COUNCIL The reporter and all of the Muslims quoted in this news report herald the diversity of America's first Muslim majority city council, "the Hamtramck City Council is going to reflect diversity."
What's diverse about a Muslim majority? Is the anything less diverse and more oppressive than Islamic law? What Muslim countries are diverse? Muslims won't even let Jews pray at the most holy of Jewish sites. Muslim countries under the sharia subjugate their religious minorities.
Iran begins blockade of US imports US President Barack Obama just two weeks ago began lifting sanctions on Iran in the wake of the nuclear deal, and in response Iran has initiated an economic step of its own, a blockade of US imports.
Debt ceiling lifted, and the same day, debt jumps $339B The U.S. national debt jumped $339 billion on Monday, the same day President Obama signed into law legislation suspending the debt ceiling.
That legislation allowed the government to borrow as much as it wants above the $18.1 trillion debt ceiling that had been in place.
'Complete anarchy' as Obama invades girls' showers The Department of Education is demanding that an Illinois school district allow a boy who identifies as a girl and plays sports on a girls team to have full access to the locker room and showers with the girls on the team.
Florida Eighth-Grader Gets Detention For Hugging The school district bans "inappropriate touching," but that's left for interpretation for each principal. Jackson Heights banned hugging altogether this year, a move some parents find excessive.

Moving Toward A One World Government, A One World Economy And A One World Religion The global elite have never been closer to their goal of a united world. Thanks to a series of interlocking treaties and international agreements, the governance of this planet is increasingly becoming globalized and centralized, but most people don't seem alarmed by this at all. In the past 30 days, we have seen some of the biggest steps toward a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion that we have ever witnessed, but these events have sparked very little public discussion or debate.
Sweden is on track to become the world's first cashless society Sweden is set to become the first cashless society in the world, researchers report, crediting the shift towards electronic-only transactions to a new mobile payment system called Swish, which facilitates real-time deposits with no minimum spend.
"Cash is still an important means of payment in many countries' markets, but that no longer applies here in Sweden," says Niklas Arvidsson from Stockholm's KTH Royal Institute of Technology. "Our use of cash is small, and it's decreasing rapidly."
Russia and Israeli warplanes play cat and mouse over Syria Syrian media reported an Israeli air force attack Sunday, Nov. 1, after two sorties Friday night against Syrian army and Hizballah bases in the Qalamoun Mountains on the Lebanese border. The IDF declined to confirm or deny these reports. Syrian sources described a large number of Israeli airplanes as bombing a Hizballah unit based in the village of El Ain in northern Lebanon and the arms depot of the 155th Brigade of the Syrian army at Al-Katifa to the east.
Islamic State Declares War on Israel and 'All the Jews'... In Hebrew The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization published a new video Sunday in its latest anti-Jewish propaganda series of clips, threatening to go to war against Israel and Jews as a whole.
The 40-second video shows the ISIS jihadi speaking fluent Hebrew but with an Arabic accent, which may lead to the possibility that he is an Arab-Israeli or Palestinian.
In Fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy, the World Turns Against Jerusalem As seen through multiple recent events, the nations of the world are increasing their efforts to weaken or remove Jewish sovereignty in Jerusalem. Is this a fulfillment of Zechariah 12:3's prophecy that, at the End of Days, the nations of the earth will gather against Jerusalem?
Grand Mufti of Jerusalem: Jewish Temples Never Stood on Temple Mount The grand mufti of Jerusalem declared on Sunday that the Jewish Temples never sat atop the Temple Mount and that the holy site has been the location of a mosque "since the creation of the world."
Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, the Muslim cleric in charge of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, told Israel's Channel 2 in an Arabic interview that the Temple Mount was really a mosque "3,000 years ago, and 30,000 years ago," dating all the way back to the beginning of the world.
Justice Kennedy to Christians: Resign or Uphold the Law Justice Anthony Kennedy feels that if faithful Christians don't like his usurping of their rights to define marriage as between one man and one woman, then they should just quit their jobs if they happen to hold public office. In other words: "I am King, now do what I say... or else."
U.N. planning court to judge U.S. for 'climate justice' At the upcoming United Nations Climate Summit in Paris, participating nations have prepared a treaty that would create an "International Tribunal of Climate Justice" giving Third World countries the power to haul the U.S. into a global court with enforcement powers. Congress would be bypassed, left out in the cold, by this climate deal, critics say. To many, this feels like the way to help institute their Agenda 21 plan.
One step closer to disarmament in the US Authoritarianism or criminal government can never feel secure as long as millions of people own guns. Likewise, when the people have no arms, they have no security and no hope of security.
Disarmament first comes by words and psychological warfare, and we are seeing it these days in spades. This week, police chiefs from across the country called for universal background checks for firearms purchases, saying opinion polls consistently show that most Americans support such restrictions.
Muslim Migrants Invited to Take Over German Church; Altar, Cross, Pulpit Removed A Protestant church in Oberhausen, Germany is set to remove Christian crosses, altars and pulpits in order to accommodate 50 Muslim migrants who were invited to stay in the building. While Germany is beginning to turn over Christian churches in order to house the influx of Muslim migrants, Sweden may be about to follow suit.

Black Lives Matter seek liaison with Tehran Tehran is hosting several African American activists in the third edition of the New Horizon conference, which deals this year with police brutality against African Americans and other people of color in the United States. JUST IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING ABOUT THE CHARACTER AND INTENT OF 'BLACK LIVES MATTER'.
Sen. Ted Cruz: Climate Change is Not Science... it's a Religion "It's religion," he said. "Look at the language where they call you a denier." As "the child of two scientists," Cruz pointed out that "'denier' is not the language of science." The "essence of the scientific method," he said, is to start with an original hypothesis and then pursue evidence that disproves that hypothesis.
"Any good scientist is a skeptic," Cruz said. "If he's not, he or she should not be a scientist."
US, Russia edge close to military collaboration in Syria and Iraq Washington and Moscow appear close to agreeing to their armed forces teaming up for war operations in Syria and Iraq. Nothing definite has so far emerged about this potential collaboration, or even if it is to be conducted covertly and experimentally ad hoc or seriously and out in the open.
Democrats and Republicans Trying to 'Render Conservatives... As Irrelevant As a Pockmark' "I think there's all kinds of bipartisanship going on in Washington," Rush Limbaugh told his talk-radio audience on Wednesday. He said the only thing that explains the Republican budget deal "is that there is a combined bipartisan effort to finally render conservatives and conservatism as irrelevant as a pockmark."
Limbaugh said he doesn't see any difference between Republicans and Democrats...
US, Saudis urge international push on Syria US Secretary of State John Kerry and King Salman of Saudi Arabia on Saturday called for greater international efforts to restore stability to Syria without President Bashar Assad at its helm.
China's New 'Citizen Scores' Are a Warning for the West... Imagine a world where you are given a "citizen rating" based on your lifestyle, shopping habits, social behaviour and morals.
China is moving quickly towards just such a system, in a Big Brother-style plan that will see everyone given a grade between 350 and 950.
If you buy diapers or recycle, you get extra points for showing you are responsible. If you play video games and spend too much on clothes, you lose points. Your friends matter, too. If they have a poor financial record, it reflects badly on you.
A low score will have serious consequences, making you ineligible for certain jobs and restricting in borrowing money, claiming benefits or finding housing.
Rep. Duncan: Russia's 'Power Projection' in Western Hemisphere is 'Deeply Troubling' Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) expressed concern over what he called Russia's recent "power projection" in the Western Hemisphere, including flying military aircraft near the coasts of Alaska and California.
"Russia's engagement in the Western Hemisphere is deeply troubling," Duncan said Thursday during a hearing held by the U.S. House Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, which Duncan chairs.
Networks ignore another horrific abortion story ABC, CBS and NBC have ignored the story of Michigan abortion doctor Michael Roth. Police recently made a gruesome discovery about him, finding 14 containers filled with what appeared to be the bodies of aborted babies and a powerful anesthetic in the trunk of his car.
Air Force officer besieged over Operation Christmas Child After a United States Air Force commander allegedly sent out an email encouraging participation in a Christmas toy drive for disadvantaged children, he soon fell under attack by an atheist military group because of the message's religious affiliation.
