Syria Says Israel Attacked Targets Near Damascus....Again

For those of us who are watching the Isiah 17 prophecy come into is another foreshadowing.

Syria: Israel Attacked Air Base Near Damascus

According to the Syrian news agency SANA, on Friday morning Israeli planes attacked the Mezzeh military airport southwest of the capital Damascus. SANA cited the Syrian army, who said a cluster of missiles had been shot after midnight from the direction of the Kinneret, which hit the vicinity of the airport. It did not report whether or not there were casualties. The army warned Israel it plans to retaliate. This is the third such attack in recent months.

According to AP, Damascus residents reported hearing a number of explosions that shook the city.

SANA suggested the attack used the new F-35 attack planes Israel has just received from the US.

The Syrian army accused Israel of helping assisting “terrorist groups” who fight the Syrian government, saying “the Syrian army command and armed forces warn the Israeli enemy of the repercussions of this blatant attack and stresses it will continue its war on terrorism.”

The IDF declined to comment, but the understanding in Israeli media is that the succession of IAF strikes in various areas in Syria over the past few years is intended to prevent advanced Russian- and Iranian-made weapons systems from making it into the hands of the Hezbollah terrorist group which supports the Assad regime.


The Bible says that one day Damascus will be a heap of ruins and that men won't inhabit it anymore.

What if some terrorists decided to launch some chemical weapons from Damascus into Israel and Israel responded with a nuclear attack to stop the carnage?

Would that qualify?

I'm reminded of a post I did 5-6 years ago where a General from the IDF said something like, "If we even find one dead dog in Northern Israel and determine it came from chemical weapons launched from Syria....they will be done."

Obama's Betrayal of Israel

As Americans, we better hope that Team Trump can get to work quickly to reverse the damage that Team Obama did to Israel during his tenure in office.

President Obama's decision not to use the US veto in the UN Security Council and to let pass Resolution 2334, effectively sets the boundaries of a future Palestinian state. The resolution declares all of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem -- home to the Old City, the Western Wall and the Temple Mount -- the most sacred place in Judaism -- "occupied Palestinian territory," and is a declaration of war against Israel.

Resolution 2334 nullified any possibility of further negotiations by giving the Palestinians everything in exchange for nothing -- not even an insincere promise of peace.

The next act is the Orwellian-named "peace conference," to be held in Paris on January 15. It has but one objective: to set the stage to eradicate Israel.

In this new "Dreyfus trial," the accused will be the only Jewish state and the accusers will be the OIC and officials from Islamized, dhimmified, anti-Israel Western states. As in the Dreyfus trial, the verdict has been decided before it even starts. Israel will be considered guilty of all charges and condemned. A draft of the declaration to be published at the end of the conference is already available.

The declaration rejects any Jewish presence beyond the 1949 armistice lines -- thereby instituting apartheid. It also praises the "Arab Peace Initiative," which calls for returning of millions of so-called "refugees" to Israel, thus transforming Israel into an Arab Muslim state where a massacre of Jews could conveniently be organized.

The declaration is most likely meant serve as the basis for a new Security Council resolution on January 17 that would recognize a Palestinian state inside the "1967 borders," and be adopted, thanks to a second US abstention, three days before Obama leaves office. The betrayal of Israel by the Obama administration and by Obama himself would then be complete.

The US Congress is already discussing bills to defund the UN and the Palestinian Authority. If Europeans think that the incoming Trump administration is as spineless as the Obama administration, they are in for a shock.


History has proven over and over again that the nations who curse Israel end up cursed themselves.

Let's pray that Team Trump is not 'as spineless as the Obama administration."

Droves of Muslims Leaving Islam to Follow Jesus Christ

Today we find another article reporting on the "droves" of Muslims who are leaving Islam and following Jesus Christ.

Do you want some hope for peace in the Middle East?  Here is your one and only hope.

The Christian Broadcasting Network says that there are an estimated 360,000 Christian believers in the Muslim country of Iran, where there were only 500 in 1979.

While thousands may not appear to be many given the more than billion estimated Muslim adherents in the world, Christians are oftentimes persecuted in the Muslim world, so conversions are especially dangerous. In December, Muslim refugees in England said they encountered Jesus Christ in their dreams and thereby converted to Christianity, adding to the many such conversion stories from the Middle East.

Could "Mallpocalypse" Be Upon Us?

Americans have had a love affair with shopping malls for the last 50 years or so.  As you know 70% of our economy is made up of people buying stuff.

So what would happen if people no longer want to go to malls but instead choose to get online and order their stuff?

The Limited shut down all 250 of its stores on Sunday and laid off 4,000 workers.

The women's clothing store chain announced the closures in a statement on its website Saturday.

"We're sad to say that all The Limited stores nationwide have officially closed their doors," the statement reads. "But this isn't goodbye.The styles you love are still available online — We're just a quick click away 24 hours a day."

Sun Capital, the private equity firm that owns The Limited, attributed the decision in part to falling foot traffic at shopping malls.

"We have worked very hard and made significant investments over nine years to improve operations and create a sustainable business at The Limited," Sun Capital told Reuters in an emailed statement. "In an increasingly challenging environment for mall-based retail and women's apparel, we are very disappointed that the company has had to make the difficult decision to close its retail locations."

Sears and Macy's, which are also primarily mall-based, have also announced mass closures this year.

We have no idea if this is going to be "good" for the economy....or cause significant problems.

But we think it is interesting, and we are happy that we don't own a massive Bed, Bath and Beyond in a mall somewhere that we signed a 10 year lease on.

MSM Finally Reports Thousands of Muslims Turning to Christ

Hey now!  This is exciting!

For years now we have been posting about the thousands and thousands of Muslims all over the world who are rejecting the Muslim faith and accepting Christ.  And most of these are coming through supernatural dreams and visions!

Today we found a headline on MSM that is finally reporting on this.

Thousands of Muslims reportedly turning to Christ in Middle East

Thousands of Muslims are turning to Jesus Christ and what they view as the "religion of freedom" amid ongoing bloodshed in the Middle East, reports indicate. Some churches hope that millions of people will accept Christ amid a "spiritual hunger" that is forming in the wake of persecution.

Voice Of the Martyrs Canada, which supports Christian radio broadcasts in the region, told BosNewsLife that despite the mass exodus of Christians from Iraq and Syria due to terrorism, persecution, and war, scores of Muslims are making the decision to embrace Christianity.

"There are thousands upon thousands coming to Christ," VOMC revealed. "We are in regular contact with our FM stations in Iraq and have talked with many people who have family in the Middle East." 

"Some of our Middle Eastern broadcasters have shared testimonies [about many turning to Christ] with us, which they hear directly from listeners when visiting there ..."

In Iran, Christian house churches are regularly targeted and shut down by the nation's Islamic government. Despite this persecution, mission group Elam Ministries revealed that Christians have been growing in terms of numbers, and today estimates suggest there are 360,000 believers in Iran – up from only 500 in 1979.

"Church leaders believe that millions can be added to the church in the next few years -- such is the spiritual hunger that exists and the disillusionment with the Islamic regime," Elam Ministries stated.

"If we remain faithful to our calling, our conviction is that it is possible to see the nation transformed within our lifetime. Because Iran is a strategic gateway nation, the growing church in Iran will impact Muslim nations across the Islamic world."

Hey you know what would bring peace to Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Somalia, Nigeria, etc....?

Yep!  Rejecting the false religion of Islam and embracing Christianity could be revolutionary with these nations.

Ellen Show Cancels Guest for Bible Belief

It has now reached that point in America where if you read certain Bible verses in can get in a whole lot of trouble.  You could lose your job, you could be the target of hate speech...or you could get cancelled from singing on The Ellen Show.

Backstage at the Golden Globes Sunday night, Hidden Figuresactress Janelle Monáe addressed the recent controversy surrounding gospel singer and pastor Kim Burrell, who sings “I See a Victory” with Pharrell Williams on the film’s soundtrack, following a recent sermon in which she made anti-LGBT comments.
“I’m pro-love,” Monáe said, while joining her costars and the team behind the LBGT-themed movie Moonlight, which won the Best Motion Picture – Drama Golden Globe. “I’ve been very supportive of love, and at the end of the day, I think that no matter where you come from and who you love, you deserve to have a right to the American dream and to also have your story told. … I just think that anybody who is representing hate is a part of the problem and I hope we can learn from each other and be more empathetic of one another, and I hope we can all remember that at the end of the day we all bleed the same color.”
Burrell came under scrutiny after speaking against the “perverted homosexual spirit” in a sermon at the Love & Liberty Fellowship Church in Houston where she is a senior pastor. Video of her speech was posted online in late December. Following backlash, Burrell went on Facebook Live to defend her sermon (she deleted the video, but it can be seen here). “I care about God’s creation and every person from the LGBT,” she said. “I never said LGBT last night. I said S-I-N…Don’t you think I know people are going to be mad? I have to do what God tells me to do. I make no excuses or apologies. My heart is as pure as it comes and you know it when you hear me sing, that’s why you follow me.”
Soon after the sermon made its way onto the internet, Williams posted a message on Twitter, saying, “I condemn hate speech of any kind. There is no room in this world for any kind of prejudice. My greatest hope is for inclusion and love for all humanity in 2017 and beyond.” Monáe and her Hidden Figures costar Octavia Spencer both reshared the message. Spencer captioned the Instagram post saying, “We are all God’s children equal in his eyes. Hatred isn’t the answer. Intolerance isn’t the answer.”
Monáe shared a much longer post. “I shouldn’t even have to post this as you guys should already know where I stand but If you do not pls know I unequivocally repudiate ANY AND ALL hateful comments against the LGBTQ community,” she said in part. “At times I want to punch and I want to slap a lot of people when I read and hear the s— that comes out their [mouths] … My hope is that we ALL go into this new year considering for one moment that we don’t have all the answers. My hope is that we become more understanding, less judgmental, more tolerate, and more patient with one another. Including me.”
Burrell and Williams were scheduled to perform together on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last Thursday, but Burrell did not appear. DeGeneres confirmed the lineup change on Twitter the day prior to the appearance.

The liberals in America are now drunk on the Kool-aid and believe there IS NO SIN.  As long as you claim to be born with any desire....that desire and action must be embraced and celebrated by all people.  In their warped worldview, a desire you are born with simply can't be wrong.

God's word would beg to differ....but you better not post this verse to FaceBook or read it from the pulpit or you will be an instant target.

Leviticus 18
Forbidden Sexual Practices
22 No man is to have sexual relations with another man; God hates that. 

Chilean Navy Releases UFO Footage it Can't Explain

Another day...another UFO sighting.

This one isn't from some guy named Pete standing in his backyard but instead comes from the Chilean navy and has some pretty interesting video.

The Chilean navy has admitted it can’t explain a video filmed by its pilots showing a UFO in the country’s airspace.
A military helicopter captured the incredible footage in November 2014 during a routine coastal patrol.
The craft – spotted in broad daylight – was filmed using the chopper’s infra-red camera.
It can be seen hovering in the clouds before appearing to give off some sort of gas as it moves along.
The pilots tracked the craft from around 40 miles away and tried several times to communicate with it.
After receiving no response, they reported it to a pair of nearby radar stations.
But shockingly, neither of them were able to see it on their screens – despite being able to detect the navy choppers.
We believe that the world is being further prepared to believe in and accept "aliens" and that they are visiting us from distant galaxies.  In reality, we believe these UFO's are actually something Satanic that will play a part in the Last Days deceptions that will be coming for the humans left behind after the rapture.

China Tackles "Masculinity Crisis"

China is concerned that it is raising too many sissy-boys so has started a program to stop it.

BEIJING — With enormous economic clout and a powerful military and a strongman president, the image that China projects to the outside world is one of strength and confidence.

At home, however, some believe the nation's over-protected young boys are becoming physically and emotionally weak — leaving China facing what is being called a "crisis of masculinity."

Some commentators in China, where gender identity is much less blurred than in Western culture, suggest it could lead to social problems and even imperil the country's national security.

A new school textbook that aims to teach boys how to be "masculine" men has been released. Called "Little Men," the book covers the differences between boys and girls, the importance of the father-son relationship as well as the importance of interacting with nature and managing money.

The colorfully illustrated book was first published in December 2016 by Shanghai Educational Publishing House and has been approved for fourth and fifth grade classes across the country, after a trial period in selected schools.

"This course is necessary for boys," Miao Li, 36, a businessman, told NBC News while waiting to pick up his daughter recently outside a Beijing primary school. "They are so over-protected by the family they don't do physical activities anymore."

"Nowadays, girls are becoming more like boys while the boys are becoming more like girls, introvert and shy," echoed another parent called Huang, a hotel employee.

"The boys are now less masculine than when I was of their age," said a retired worker named Tian, a grandfather to an 8-year-old boy.

Another retiree named Huang, with a 7-year-old grandson, noted that boys are "more fragile emotionally and physically due to too much homework."

The roots of China's masculinity crisis can be traced to a number of areas, one of which is the country's One Child policy, implemented between 1979 and 2015. The policy restricted the number of children families were allowed to have in order to curb the country's surging population growth. It was replaced with a two-child limit last year.

"The problem is that the family spoils the kid with love and care," said a hotel management worker surnamed Sheng, mother of a first-grader, suggesting that over-indulgence and parents' fear of losing their only child has stunted the natural adventurous character of boys.

Hey China!  Did you not get the message from Western Civilization that "gender is fluid?"  We are all men and we are all women!  It's totally normal for men to desire men and women to desire women.  The ideas of 'masculinity' and 'femininity' are so passé yesterday!  Get with the LGBT agenda China!!

Friends, China has some serious problems.  The article points out the problems with China's ONE CHILD POLICY.  Since the gov't only allowed a married couple to have one child....if they had a little girl they would abort it or kill it after it was born by just setting the newborn girl out in the back yard and letting the dogs or exposure kill the child.

So if the couple was fortunate enough to have a healthy boy they would spoil him, pamper him and wrap in in metaphorical bubble wrap because he was so valuable to them.  Climbing trees, jumping creeks, walking on ice, swinging from ropes.....those would all be too dangerous.

So if little boys aren't allowed to do the activities that boys desire.....they will ultimately become wimps who can't climb trees, cant swing from ropes, can't run up a hill....these are all things that a good soldier needs to do.  And China needs to keep building a big army, filled with aggressive, athletic men....NOT girly men.

Monkey and a Deer Caught Having Sex

Friends, this article was found on the FRONT PAGE of Google News today;

Why Biologists Care About A Macaque And Deer Caught On Camera In Rare Interspecies Mating Act

So what's the big deal?  Why would Forbes and Google choose to put this article front and center about a horny monkey mounting a deer?

Ummmm....because the world is being prepared for more perversion.  You see quite a few people desire to have sex with animals (bestiality and/or zoophilia) and they also want to come out of the closet and be accepted and celebrated along with the other perverts who are now accepted and celebrated.

The link goes like this.....if monkeys are born with the desire to have sex with deer...and humans descended from monkeys....then its totally normal for men to want to have sex with a horse.

In this case, Pelé and colleagues had already been observing communities of Japanese macaques on the island of Yakushima in Japan to note cultural differences among the primate groups. Study co-author Alexandre Bonnefoy was out observing and video-taping one November day in 2015 when he caught this somewhat shocking behavior on camera (the slightly not-safe-for-work video can be found here).
The macaque hops on the back of the female sika deer and attempts a sexual act, but as the authors describe, either a morphology or size difference prevents penetration. This male macaque gave it a try twice with two different deer, but penetrated neither. Although, the authors note, “ejaculation seemed to occur as the deer was seen licking the seminal liquid after the mount.”
Besides this untoward act, the Japanese macaque and sika deer typically have a harmonious relationship with each other on Yakushima Island, as the deer often eat fruit the macaques drop from trees and also on occasion, the macaque’s poop.
The researchers are not exactly sure why the macaques would bother with this unproductive behavior. It doesn’t make sense that it is for learning how to have sex or any sort of species confusion. The best idea is one known as the “mate deprivation hypothesis,” where male macaques with little or no access to females need to get their frustrations out elsewhere. They hope understanding why this behavior occurs will clarify the psychology behind zoophilia (also known as humans having a sexual interest in other animals). Clearly, as undeniably popular as the topic is, humans still have a lot more to learn about sex in the animal kingdom.
Did you catch that last paragraph?  Yes!!  We can observe the monkey and then figure out WHY HUMANS DESIRE SEX WITH ANIMALS!!
"But Dennis, this is crazy dumb!  There aren't really humans who are having sex with animals...or if so it's only one or two!"
The Bible says there is 'nothing new under the sun.'  Humans have pretty much come up with any amount of perversion their wicked minds can comprehend....and it's been going on for thousands of years. 
Humans having sex with animals is one reason God told the Israelites to destroy every man, woman, child and animal in the Promised Land so the land could be made clean again.
Leviticus 18
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.
24 “‘Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. 25 Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants.

Trump's Son in Law is Orthodox Jew

The media is all aflutter today as they report that Donald is naming Jared Kushner as his chief adviser.  Kushner happens to be Trump's son in law and also happens to be an Orthodox Jew.

The Middle East will be one policy platform that Kushner will advise Pres. Trump on.

Jared Kushner, US President-elect Donald Trump’s son-in-law, will be appointed senior White House adviser, presidential transition officials confirmed.

Kushner, an orthodox Jew, is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka and served as a close advisor to the Republican candidate during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

Trump is working with a legal team, which reportedly managed to circumvent any nepotism laws that would bar a politician from promoting family members. These laws, however, may not be applicable to the White House.

Trump is expected to make the announcement at a press conference on Wednesday.

Kushner, a wealthy 35-year-old real estate developer, is preparing to resign from his position at Kushner Companies and “divest substantial assets,” Jamie Gorelick, his attorney and partner at the law firm of WilmerHale, told media.

“Mr. Kushner is committed to complying with federal ethics laws, and we have been consulting with the Office of Government Ethics regarding the steps he would take,” Gorelick said.

Wow!  The plot thickens!!

And Team Trump continues to push for moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

The liberals are still in shocked disbelief that Trump beat their champion.  They can't believe that Trump said dirty words and can even playfully mock people and that America would still elect him!

They don't understand how JayZ, Beyonce, Madonna, Meryl Streep, and Amy Shumer could have all been campaigning for Hillary....and yet Americans simply didn't care what these Hollywood folks think.

Remember to keep praying for Trump, his transition team and that America would continue to be a blessing to Israel.

Human Woman Claims She is Actually a Cat

God created humans as male and female.  That's it.

But what if some woman claims to actually be a man?  Well then the world agrees with her and calls her TRANSGENDER.

But what if some woman claims to actually be a cat?  Well then the world agrees with her and calls her TRANS-SPECIES.

It's a thing's all the rage.  And please, please, please don't you doubt her story for a single second or you will be called a SPECIES-PHOBE and an intolerant, judgmental hater!

Watch this cat-woman from Norway here;

I wonder if Target is going to provide her a litter box in the ladies room?  I know for a fact that my cats don't like to poop when you are looking at them.

Also please notice that 55 seconds into the video she is asked, "Were you born this way?"  And what do you suppose the cat-woman answers??


Yep!  All humans were born as perverted, selfish toads!  ALL HAVE SINNED!  That's why Jesus said we need to be born again.  We were born first in our bodies as Children of the Devil....and once we ask Christ to save us we are born again as Children of the Light.

The Pull of Heaven

For 8-10 years now, the refrain from a hymn has been running through my head....because it makes so much sense and explains a lot of things for me....

"Turn your eyes upon Jesus....look full in His wonderful face...and the things of this earth will grow strangely the light of His glory and grace."

In connection to that,  I saw this devotional from Pastor Greg Laurie today and thought it was worth posting.

The Pull of Heaven

We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.
—1 Chronicles 29:15

When we're young, life seems to go slowly. But as we get older, we can't believe how quickly life goes. We can't believe how quickly a week goes—then a month, then a year.

The Bible says this about our lives: "We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace" (1 Chronicles 29:15).

Yet the Bible also says that God "has planted eternity in the human heart" (Ecclesiastes 3:11). We are not highly evolved animals; we are uniquely made in the image of God with a soul and a desire to know the God who created us.

For those of us who have put our trust in Christ, we are citizens of a different place. You might say that we have dual citizenship. We are citizens of the planet Earth, but we are heavenly citizens as well. Philippians 3:20 says, "We are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior."

I heard the story of a little boy who was flying his kite, which had gone up so high, he could no longer see it. Someone saw him tugging on the string and asked, "Where is your kite?"

"Up there," he said.

"I can't see your kite. How do you know it's there?"

"It's there," the boy said. "I feel its tug."

We feel the same thing. We feel the pull of heaven deep down inside. As Augustine wrote, "Thou madest us for Thyself, and our heart is restless, until it [rests] in Thee." There's a desire in us, a craving in us, that nothing on this earth will ever satisfy.

The Birth of Half-Human Half-Animal Chimeras

What would happen if scientists were able to splice the genes of man together with the genes of a tiger and then put that embryo into a cow and birth some type of mutant?

It would be called a chimera.

I wonder what God would think of humans doing such a thing?....creating strange flesh....corrupting original flesh?

The hope is to implant human stem cells in an animal embryo so that it will grow specific human organs. The approach could, in theory, provide a ready-made replacement for a diseased heart or liver – eliminating the wait for a human donor and reducing the risk of organ rejection.

These bold and controversial plans are the culmination of more than three decades of research. These experiments have helped us understand some of the biggest mysteries of life, delineate the boundaries between species, and explore how a ragbag bunch of cells in the womb coalesce and grow into a living, breathing being.

With new plans to fund the projects, we are now reaching a critical point in this research. "Things are moving very fast in this field today," says Janet Rossant at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, and one of the early pioneers of chimera research. "It's going to open up a new understanding of biology."

That is, provided we can resolve some knotty ethical issues first – questions that may permanently change our understanding of what it means to be human.
For millennia, chimeras were literally the stuff of legend. The term comes from Greek mythology, with Homer describing a strange hybrid "of immortal make, not human, lion-fronted and snake behind, a goat in the middle". It was said to breathe fire as it roamed Lycia in Asia Minor.

Previous attempts to produce a hybrid "interspecific" chimera often ended in disappointment. The embryos simply failed to embed in the uterus, and those that did were deformed and stunted, and typically miscarried before they reached term.

Rossant's technique involved a delicate operation at a critical point in pregnancy, around four days after mating. At this point, the fertilised egg has divided into a small bundle of cells known as the blastocyst. This contains an inner cell mass, surrounded by a protective outer layer called the trophoblast, which goes on to form the placenta.

Working with William Frels, Rossant took the M. musculus and injected it with the inner cell mass of the other species, M. caroli. They then implanted this mixed bag of cells back into the M. musculus mothers. By ensuring that the M. musculus trophoblast remained intact, they ensured that the resulting placenta would match the mother's DNA. This helped the embryo embed in the uterus. Next they sat back and waited 18 days for the pregnancies to unfold.

It makes one wonder if God will soon say, "Enough!"

Jesus told us that in the days leading up to His return the conditions on earth would be "As it was in the days of Noah."

Does this just mean that people would be clueless that a massive flood was coming?....or could it have something to do with the idea that Satan and his fallen angels were taking women and making strange flesh with them in hopes of corrupting God's creation?

Genesis 6
 When people had spread all over the world, and daughters were being born, 2 some of the heavenly beings saw that these young women were beautiful, so they took the ones they liked. 
4 In those days, and even later, there were giants on the earth who were descendants of human women and the heavenly beings. They were the great heroes and famous men of long ago.
