Report: Iran preparing for direct confrontation with Israel
Tehran is preparing for a sustained campaign of direct confrontation with Israel, with plans to use the Iranian military’s growing presence in Syria to launch attacks on targets inside the Jewish state. For decades, the radical Islamist regime in Tehran has engaged in a de facto war with Israel via proxies – using terror groups in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon to attack Israeli civilian and military targets. On Tuesday, however, Israeli security officials revealed that Iran is now preparing for a direct assault on Israel, using its growing military assets on Israel’s northern border to strike targets inside the Jewish state.
The world goes mad when it comes to Israel
Look at how the media misinformation works against Israel in the world. The sequence is known: Chemical attack in Syria followed by Israeli raids against an Iranian base.

As if it was Israeli and not Syrian, the hand that spread the gas.
Orange County city votes again to opt out of California’s sanctuary state law

Los Alamitos Council members voted 4-1 to opt out of a state law that prohibited state and local police agencies from informing federal authorities in cases when illegal immigrants facing deportation are released from detention.

|Deadly Oklahoma wildfire has now consumed over 246,000 acres
||Posted: 17 Apr 2018 07:07 AM PDT
The Rhea Fire that started on April 12, 2018 in Western Oklahoma grew quickly with Red Flag fire weather conditions and has now consumed over 100,000 hectares (246,000 acres). The fire is blamed for the death of 1 person so far. This fire is located in Dewey County, northeast of Leedey Oklahoma and is only 3% contained as of April 17, 2018. More than 500 firefighters are assigned along with three large air tankers, two type 1 helicopters, four single-engine air tankers, two CL-415 scooping air tankers, an air
attack plane, and two National Guard helicopters. The fire has been spurred on by the local weather which has been dry with high winds. Even the storms that swept through the area during the weekend did not diminish the fires and served to spread them due to high winds. Spread is likely to be to the south and east due to sustained strong winds in the area predicted to be 24 – 32 km/h (15-20 mph) with gusts up to 48 km/h (30 mph). READ MORE
|Dozens of earthquakes strike village in New Brunswick, Canada leaving residents baffled
||Posted: 17 Apr 2018 06:57 AM PDT
A village in New Brunswick has been shaken by at least 14 earthquakes over the past 17 days — and nobody knows what’s causing them. This is not the first time the community has trembled like this. Towards the beginning of 2016, McAdam experienced more than 100 small earthquakes, which shook homes and broke windows. Like the most recent swarm of tremors, no scientific explanation was ever found. “Sometimes, I just think it’s a truck going by. It doesn’t bother me too much, but the wife gets
kind of upset, paranoid. She’d crawl under the bed if she could!” According to data from Natural Resources Canada, there have been 23 earthquakes in the province over the past 30 days. That includes 14 in the vicinity of McAdam between March 27 and April 3 that have ranged in magnitude from 0.2 to 2.6. More than half of the earthquakes, he added, have occurred in the middle of the night at the relatively shallow depth of 600 metres. READ MORE

|Was There a Civilization On Earth Before Humans?
||Posted: 17 Apr 2018 06:37 AM PDT
Schmidt is the director of nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (a.k.a. GISS) a world-class climate-science facility. One day last year, I came to GISS with a far-out proposal. In my work as an astrophysicist, I’d begun researching global warming from an “astrobiological perspective.” That meant asking whether any industrial civilization that rises on any planet will, through their own activity, trigger their own version of a climate shift. I was visiting GISS that day hoping to gain some climate science
insights and, perhaps, collaborators. That’s how I ended up in Gavin’s office. Just as I was revving up my pitch, Gavin stopped me in my tracks. “Wait a second,” he said. “How do you know we’re the only time there’s been a civilization on our own planet?” It took me a few seconds to pick my jaw off the floor. I had certainly come into Gavin’s office prepared for eye rolls at the mention of “exo-civilizations.” But the civilizations he was asking about would have existed many millions of years ago. Sitting there, seeing Earth’s vast evolutionary past telescope before my mind’s eye, I felt a kind of temporal vertigo. “Yeah,” I stammered, “Could we tell if there’d been an industrial civilization that deep in time?” READ MORE
|We Need to Deal With These Sick Practices in God’s House
||Posted: 17 Apr 2018 06:29 AM PDT
(By Michael Brown) One night, I flipped on a Christian TV show, only to see a well-known fund-raiser preaching a powerful message on Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. I had seen him once or twice before, using the biblical feasts to raise large offerings. I said to myself, “There’s no way he’s going to take something as sacred as the agony of our Lord in Gethsemane and turn it into a fund-raising trick. He couldn’t do that.” Sure enough, he did. I was sick to my stomach. What kind of person uses the Savior’s suffering to bilk God’s
people of their money? One of my friends knows this brother personally and told me he’s very sincere, he’s a great pastor, and he genuinely believes in what he’s doing. That makes it even more pathetic to me. It’s one thing if you’re a total charlatan living a double life, preaching for money one day and partying with the world the next. But in this case the manipulative fund-raiser was said to be a committed pastor. What else could he justify in the name of the Lord? READ MORE
|ISIS threatens to bomb New York’s subway
||Posted: 17 Apr 2018 06:17 AM PDT
ISIS propaganda chiefs have issued a chilling threat to bring death and destruction to New York’s subway. The terror group has vowed to attack Paris and the World Cup finals in Russia in recent weeks as part of a global campaign of lone wolf strikes as it continues to lose territory in the Middle East. In its latest warning, uploaded to militant Islamist messaging platforms, a man is pictured standing on the
platform at New York’s High Street – Brooklyn Bridge Station with explosives and a timer behind him. The poster includes the threat: ‘You will not expect where we will attack.’ The group’s propaganda wing – the Wafa Media Foundation – is continuing to churn out threats despite the so-called ISIS caliphate suffering huge losses in Syria and Iraq. ISIS fanatics are increasingly turning to lone-wolf supporters to take up their violent cause around the world. READ MORE
|California rejects proposed border duties for troops
||Posted: 17 Apr 2018 06:03 AM PDT
The Trump administration said Monday that California Gov. Jerry Brown rejected terms of the National Guard’s initial deployment to the Mexican border, but a state official said nothing was decided. “The governor determined that what we asked for is unsupportable, but we will have other iterations,” Ronald Vitiello, U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s acting deputy commissioner, told reporters in Washington. Brown elicited rare and effusive praise from President Donald Trump last week for pledging
400 troops to the Guard’s third large-scale border mission since 2006. But the Democratic governor conditioned his commitment on his state’s troops having nothing to do with immigration enforcement, even in a supporting role. Brown’s announcement last week did not address what specific jobs the California Guard would and would not do, nor answer the thorny question of how state officials would distinguish work related to immigration from other duties.

|China Issues Decree that Demands All Christians Register With the Government in the Henan Province
||Posted: 16 Apr 2018 07:58 PM PDT
The Chinese government issued a notice declaring that all who are religiously affiliated in the Henan Province must register with the government in Anyang, the northernmost city in the region. The order declares that Christians, Buddhists, Taoists, and Muslims must register; however, according to a source that spoke to ChinaAid, the communist government is only going after those who identify as Christians. “In the past two months, the government banned all Catholic churches and (Protestant) house churches,
and that didn’t happen to any other religions.” Over the past several months China has ramped up the amount of censorship, imprisonment, and abuse of Christians which the Christian Journal has documented. An officer in China, from the Pingyuan Neighborhood Committee, speaking to ChinaAid stated that all who are religiously affiliated are required to register, but she did not believe that the order was a cause for alarm.

|Earth Has Near Miss With Asteroid Spotted Just Hours Earlier
||Posted: 16 Apr 2018 07:51 PM PDT
An asteroid came alarmingly close to striking the Earth on April 15, just hours after the large space rock was spotted flying through the solar system. According to EarthSky.org, the 150-foot asteroid wasn’t located until April 14 by the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona. The object, labeled 2018 GE3, passed within 119,500 miles of the Earth around 2:41 a.m. Eastern Time on Sunday morning. While it doesn’t sound like a short distance, 2018 GE3 was twice as close to the Earth as the moon is, which has an average orbit
of 238,900 miles away. The “medium-sized” space object is reportedly over three times the size of a meteor that entered the atmosphere over Russia in 2013 and injured more than 1,000 people. That incident also reportedly damaged thousands of buildings in the area which had their windows blown out by the meteor’s shock wave. NASA, which funds the Catalina Sky Survey, noted that 2018 GE3 passed even closer to the moon about four hours after its close call with Earth. READ MORE
|DEVELOPING: Missile strikes reported near Homs in Syria
||Posted: 16 Apr 2018 04:02 PM PDT
DEVELOPING: Hezbollah and Syrian army sources report that Syria’s air defense system has responded to a missile attack on the Shayrat airbase in the city of Homs early Tuesday morning according to Lebanon’s Daily Star. The missiles were intercepted and shot down, the report claims. Further unconfirmed Syrian military sources report that military aircraft violated Syrian airspace. The Syrian
the military has tentatively identified the aircraft as Israeli planes, according to the source cited by Al-Masdar news. The Shayrat airbase was targeted by an American strike last year. “There is no US military activity in that area at this time,” Pentagon officials said responding to the reports of the attack on the Homs airbase.

|DAYS OF NOAH: Japan to lift ban on growing human organs in animals…
||Posted: 16 Apr 2018 01:08 PM PDT
A Japanese government-commissioned expert panel has greenlighted controversial scientific experiments to grow human organs inside the bodies of animals as early as this fall. Under the auspices of the Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry, the panel produced a report on research involving the development of human organs in the bodies of pigs and other animals. In the report, the panel concluded it would allow researchers to implant an animal embryo (a fertilized egg)
containing human cells into an animal’s womb and have the animal give birth. One method being considered for growing human organs inside animal bodies involves injecting human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells into an animal embryo and then returning the embryo to an animal’s womb to be birthed. The embryos are genetically modified to prevent specific organs from being created. Japan’s current guidelines prohibit transplanting such an embryo into an animal’s womb. The ministry plans to revise them. READ MORE

|The Role of Syria in the End Times
||Posted: 16 Apr 2018 11:07 AM PDT
With all the events taking place in Syria right now, many people are asking, “What does the Bible have to say about Syria and the end times? Is this the beginning of World War III and Armageddon?” Those are legitimate questions, but let me assure you, this is not the end. How can I be so sure? Because the Bible says Armageddon takes place at the end of the seven-year Tribulation (Revelation 16:16), and the Tribulation has yet to begin.
That said, I believe recent events in Syria have great significance when it comes to the study of Bible prophecy. This doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to see the immediate fulfillment of any specific bible prophecy. However, it does mean you should pay close attention. Why? Because, at the very least, these events are setting the table for the fulfillment of multiple bible prophecies. READ MORE
|Newly Minted Trump-Cyrus-Third Temple Coin Prophetic Confirmation During Israel’s 70th Anniversary
||Posted: 16 Apr 2018 10:59 AM PDT
A coin minted to celebrate Israel’s 70th birthday has Donald Trump’s profile superimposed over King Cyrus on one side and the third temple on the other. It’s called the temple coin. “The fact that Orthodox Jews wanted to honor Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and they minted this coin—a one-half silver shekel—is as if they are confirming this word given by Christians as valid,” says Warren Marcus, the executive producer of It’s Supernatural! With Sid Roth. “The great significance is
that on one side the coin has the image of Cyrus and Trump. On the other side it has the image of the third temple yet to be built. The one half-silver shekel during the time of the temple was required to be paid as an offering by each male of a Jewish household during Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) that was earmarked for the upkeep of the holy temple! It is the hope of the Orthodox Jews who minted this coin that this coin will be actually used to pay that offering again for the upkeep of the third temple,” Marcus says. READ MORE
