Where is America in Biblical Prophecy? 2021 Absolutely Demonstrates Why — The Ignorant Fishermen Blog

A resounding question asked by many today is, “Where is America in Biblical prophecy?” The simple answer is that our nation will still exist during the Great Tribulation period, but our military power and socio-economic position will have been diminished to the level of a godless, base nation. For many years this was a hard reality for many American believers to grasp because in many ways it was so hard to see! But by faith in God’s Word, we knew it must be! 
Joe Biden in my opinion is the demonic stage setter for the Anti-Christ who is to come and is making ready the world stage for the Anti-Christ and his reception.

Now my dear friends; in 2021 we are seeing all of the godless and lawless aspirations and dreams of demonic evil men and women fully coming to be through years of incrementally prepping a people and nation. Through demonic deception and indoctrination, the demonic left has brought us to this very hour in which lawlessness does not just dominate our nation but is growing and dominating EXPONENTIALLY in all proportions of it and is now mainstream. In EVERY facet of our nation from DC to Hollywood, from the music industry to all branches of education, from media to Mainstreet advertisement and marketing, from Twitter to Facebook, from the sports world to the video game world, etc., etc. ALL is godless and anti-Christ. Indeed, my dear friends, it is more than safe to say that the spirit of Anti- Biblical Jesus, anti-God, and anti-Christ is indeed rife within America, and with it has now come the demonic tsunami and tidal wave of its destructive flood throughout America. Today; with the highly coordinated theft and the overthrow of our national elections in which a demonic sock puppet for the deep state was placed in office, we have passed beyond a shadow of any doubt to the point of no return for our nation. Joe Biden is the very demonic tool in which the demonic left is using to absolutely destroy what remains of our nation. He is being used as the demonic deep state’s tool by doing everything in his power to destroy America from within and what remains of its Judeo/1christian founding. 
Joe Biden in my opinion is the demonic stage setter for the Anti Christ who is to come and will make ready the world stage for the Anti-Christ and his reception by the removal of America from off of the world’s stage.

Joe Biden in my opinion is the demonic stage setter for the Anti Christ who is to come and will make ready the world stage for the Anti-Christ and his reception by the removal of America from off of the world’s stage (2 Thess. 2:3-12; Rev. 6:1). With the American global restraint removed off of the world stage and then the removal of the DIVINE restraint of the Holy Spirit found within Almighty God’s people at the Rapture; the EXPONENTIAL and ULTRA- HORRIFIC Day of the Lord will begin and WOE, WOE, WOE to the inhabits of the EXPONENTIAL godless world (Rev. 6-19). Where will be America in that day? It is more than abundantly clear in light of our EXPONENTIALLY deteriorating day; we will not be.
These destructive vices have accelerated our nation’s rot EXPONENTIALLY via the technological advances in the media of our day.
Dear friends, when Almighty God the Son calls His Body (the Church) out of the world by means of the Rapture, our nation will then finally implode upon itself (2 Thess. 2:7). Any remnant of restraint by Conservatives will then be totally removed, and our demise will arise by means of global tribulation (nuclear war) (Rev. 6:1-8; 9:14-18, Rev. 6-19), of civil war and EXPONENTIAL lawlessness which will lead to total national social collapse and anarchy (Rev. 6:1-8; 9:14-18). The prophetic words and warnings of our Founding Fathers against the violation of Almighty God’s natural laws will come to pass. America will reap a whirlwind of consequences from her godless doings, and tyranny and oppression will fill the vacuum once filled with justice and the rule of law..
America will be absorbed into the coming European “Super Global Empire” of the Anti-Christ to go against Almighty God at the Great Battle of Armageddon.

The reception and outworking of godless secularism and “unnatural” laws has and will continue to plunge America into a third-world nation status from which it will not recover. Even 8 to 10 years ago this picture was hard to fully see but since the Obama administration, we have seen the secular Left rapidly move us to the brink of collapse with their godless and lawless agenda. The final piece to our undoing will be when we as America abandon Israel, which we are doing more and more today under this Biden administration. No more will America be the nation that resists and restrains global secular fascism and oppression. No more will we be a beacon of light to all the world’s oppressed. No more will we be the world’s guardian against oppressive dictators and thugs, for we will be transformed into the very thing that our Founding Fathers prophetically warned us about. In the end, America will war against Almighty God’s Two MIGHTY LAMP STANDS (Moses and Elijah), then be absorbed into the coming European “Super Global Empire” of the Anti-Christ (Dan. 2: 40-44; 7:19-21; 9:26-27; Rev. 13, 17:10-18) to go against Almighty God at the Great Battle of Armageddon(Zech. 12:3; 14:2; Rev. 16:13-16). TRAGICALLY, many do not want to begin to conceive this REALITY and choose to deceive themselves with optimistic lies and falsehoods as they try to retain their delusion and false security See Chart Link
,
The Final Countdown

As this age draws to its final conclusion, and as the sobering realities of this appraisal are showing themselves everywhere today, may we not be oblivious to the countless signs and warnings bells at present of what is coming (Luke 21:34; 1 Thess. 5:2; 2 Peter 3:10; Rev. 16:15).

For a brief 400 years in the 6,000 years of world history, America was a signpost pointing the entire world to the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. With its rule of law and Judeo/Christian heritage, America was a mighty dam holding back global oppression and tyranny. No other nation in the world’s history has done more to send out the Glorious Gospel light to the oppressed prisoners and captives of Satan’s tyrannical Kingdom (Hebrews 2:14-15). The last flickers of America’s light have nearly gone out and the flax is near smoldering. These current realities must be acknowledged by all before it is too late to even notice.

The last flickers of America’s light have nearly gone out and the flax is near smoldering. These current realities must be acknowledged by all before it is too late to even notice.

Almost 2,000 years ago, Almighty God sent His Son from Heaven’s glory to come down to earth to pay the price for man’s disobedience and transgression against Almighty God’s perfectly righteous standards and holy absolutes (Romans 10:4; 1 Peter 1:19; 3:18). In these last days, the Spirit of God is calling out to men and women throughout the world to repent and be saved from the wrath to come (John 3:16-17). Will you have an ear to hear? America is like a fractured dam ready to give way at any moment. What will there be after she does? The chief end of all Americans and the world is to possess a saving relationship to Almighty God in spirit and truth in perfect righteousness (Eccl. 12:13-14; Gal 1:4; 1 John 2:17).

May I ask you this very pertinent and urgent question? Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s propitiation (a payment that yields satisfaction) for man’s transgressions (1 John 2:2), as your PERSONAL Savior? If not, may you do so today. Nothing is more crucial in these last days. Time is but for a moment while eternity is forever. The things of Almighty God will abide forever, America will not. Will you trust Him today?

The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!

Don’t Settle for an Immature Faith — Ligonier Ministries Blog

The Lord calls us to have a childlike faith, but not a simplistic or ignorant faith. In this brief clip, R.C. Sproul shows how theologians such as Augustine and Anselm have underscored the importance of continually growing in our knowledge of God.

Today, watch the entire message for free.

Transcript:

Now, neither Augustine nor Anselm was ever satisfied with a blind faith, which they considered to be a form of credulity that was not in any way virtuous. But rather, though both subscribed to the idea that, in the final analysis, God is incomprehensible—namely that we cannot contain in our finite minds or our finite intellect a total comprehensive understanding of God—nevertheless, the God who is has revealed Himself to us with sufficient clarity, and particularly in the sacred Scriptures, to such a degree that we can at least have an apprehensive knowledge of Him. And those who put their trust in God and their faith in God and the things of God should never be satisfied with a childish, immature understanding of God. Now, I mention that because we live again in a time that is one of the most anti-intellectual periods in Western Christianity. That is, we are anti-mind, and it has become a virtue among Christians to embrace what is called a “childlike faith.” Now, of course, there is a point for a childlike faith insofar as a small child puts implicit trust in one who knows more than the child does—namely, the parent, while they are very young, at least. It doesn’t last too long, of course. What we as the children of God should have is an implicit trust in our heavenly father, just as a young child has that kind of implicit trust in their earthly parents. But this concept of a childlike faith has come to mean to many people today what I would call (and what Anselm would call and what Augustine would call) a childish faith. The childish faith says, “I don’t want to have to think about the content of my faith; that’s a destructive thing that scholars get into. I’m just going to keep it as simple as I possibly can and not be engaged in any serious study of theology or the Word of God or anything else. I’m just going to keep it simple.” Now, at that point, when we take that position, we sin. It’s so far from being a virtue. It is a vice according to the New Testament, because the New Testament commands that we are to be babes in evil, childlike in our sin—but in understanding, we are to be men; that is, we are to be adults. And as the author of Hebrews labors, it is a sin to be satisfied with the milk, and we are commanded as we seek maturity in Christ to the diet of the meatier things of the faith. Now, this is the kind of thing that both Augustine and Anselm were jealous to communicate: that the content that God has revealed in His Scripture is content that was designed to be understood by His people, and we must seek to gain as much understanding as we possibly can of that which God has provided for us.

Sometimes Providences Must Be Read Backward

Starting a War to Exercise Tyranny
Psalm 140:1–2

There are those who for no other cause stir up war but to the intent they may by that means more easily exercise tyranny on their subjects. For in the time of peace, the authority of the council, the dignity of the rulers, the vigor and strength of the laws, do somewhat hinder, that a prince cannot do all that he wants; but as soon as war is once begun, now all the handling of matters rests in the pleasure of a few persons.

The Great Reset of the American Church — Capstone Report

Stephen Nichols’ Jesus Made in America embraces push to marginalize Christian political power.

Change is in the air. More specifically, Revolution is in the air. Every institution of American society is sprinting leftward at a breakneck speed. The Church is not immune to this trend. In fact, there are many Evangelical Elites working to remake the church into a politically effete institution—something acceptable to the Secular Elite. It will be done by a dialectical fusion or syncretism that renders the clear teachings of Scripture into something novel, something entirely different.

Interestingly, the model for destroying Evangelical political efficacy can be found in the pages of a 2008 book titled Jesus Made in America by Stephen Nichols. A close reading of Chapter 8, Jesus on the Right Wing: Christ and Politics in America spells out just how Evangelical Elites will neutralize the clear teachings of Scripture. Jesus will be transformed or syncretized into something non-threatening to progressive politics.

Nichols fills Chapter 8 with concepts that are now buzzwords among Evangelical Elites—“holistic politics” being one example. It is the precursor form of what has become among Evangelicals a demand that pro-life (anti-abortion) be combined with care after-birth. This is a holistic pro-life ethic. This is code for neutering effective Christian witness against abortion by loading the pro-life position with womb-to-the-tomb social programs. (See Russell Moore for an illustration of how this expanded definition of pro-life spreads.)

This chapter of Nichols’ book places Jesus on the political spectrum somewhere between the contemporary American political parties. In Nichols’ view, Jesus and Christianity represent a fusion of the best parts of the right and left.

Jesus is sort of to the right on moral issues like abortion, sexuality, etc. and Jesus is sort of to the Left on poverty issues.

However, what justifies Nichols’ implicit assumption that Leftist-progressive-liberal political programs are better for the poor?

Jesus & Right vs. Left Economics

As Nichols repeatedly says in Chapter 8 of Jesus Made in America, the Right is dedicated to the “free market” (and he uses this with an implicit tut-tut.) One example of this is how Nichols describes James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family.

Dobson has situated himself as a Republican publican Party…while stressing family values, appears to some to be too closely connected to fiscal conservatism,” Nichols writes.

This is then contrasted with the economic beliefs of Leftist Christians like Jim Wallis, the notorious leader of Sojourners. Nichols recounts how Wallis is alarmed by the conservative, free market economic beliefs of modern American Evangelicals. In contrast, Leftists care for the poor.

This is the typical Leftist Evangelical trope: Jesus cares about the poor and those rich, mean Republicans only care about tax cuts. Thus, you cannot be a Christian and a Republican. This is the unmistakable point of the chapter.

It is hogwash. The data is clear: conservative economics is the friend of the poor and the rich. The free market is the best way to help people out of poverty. With the expansion of economic liberty following the end of World War II and the Cold War, more people were lifted out of poverty than ever. As Mises writes, The Data is Clear: Free Markets Reduce Poverty.

However, Nichols stresses the new Social Justice term of equity. “Thinking of our political engagement from a platform of common morality stresses justice and fairness, which went by the term equity in the history of political philosophy,” Nichols writes.

While technically true, the term today has nothing to do with justice or fairness. It is all about forcing equal outcomes and penalizing success. (You have probably heard it in relation to economic equity and health equity in the last few years. Equity is not equality.)

This is important: Equality of opportunity is replaced by a focus on leveling outcomes. Thus, excellence must be punished and success restrained lest it become excessive—with Leftists happily defining excessive in their own, idiosyncratic way.

Stephen Nichols loves Jim Wallis

“Economic issues also literally drive Jim Wallis’s criticism of the religious right,” Nichols writes. He proceeds to promote Jim Wallis’s own self-perception as a prophet to modern Evangelicalism. The lionization of the George Soros-funded and progressive Christian Wallis stands in stark contrast to the snarky dismissals of Jerry Falwell, Richard Land, Pat Robertson, and James Dobson.

Nichols says specifically of Dobson “All this to say, Dobson and the Focus on the Family Empire put a lot of stock in elections.”

As if somehow caring about politics is a bad thing. Dobson gets special and repeated attention in the chapter.

The chapter then celebrates Jim Wallis. Hardly shocking since Nichols wrote articles for the leftwing fanatics at Sojourners. Of course, the Cancel Culture has now arisen at Sojourners and even targeted leftists like Wallis. (Something like what happened to Wallis is a parable about how every useful idiot to radical Leftists will eventually be problematized, ousted and in time re-educated.)

Wallis was one of the rented Evangelicals. Wallis received funding from Democratic mega-donor George Soros. Then lied about it. Then later admitted that Soros indeed provided funding to Sojourners.

Not at Home in Any Party? Political Homelessness as a tool of control

Wallis “has a trouble finding a home” in church and politics, Nichols writes. Spinning what has become a popular trope that Christians should not feel welcomed by any political party.

Nichols writes in praise of Wallis, “He speaks of his own untimeliness, like the prophets. As an alternative to either an entrenched conservative or liberal religion, he holds to a prophetic spirituality, which in turn provides him with plenty of fodder for political engagement, which in turn he aims at greed, injustice, violence and poverty.”

Nichols even quotes Leftists who accuse Roy Moore, Richard Land and Jerry Falwell of being “counterfeit Baptists.”

Their crime? They view traditional moral values as integral to the mission of the state and work within politics to promote moral policies. That is the same thing Leftists Evangelicals do; however, they receive no such critique from popular culture or Nichols—which is instructive about the implicit bias and goal in the book.

In contrast is the pacifism of Anabaptists like John Howard Yoder—who earns praise in the chapter.

Nichols warns against the Church or Christians making political statements like the prophets of old.

“But it does deny the right to say, ‘Thus says the Lord of Hosts’ about the affairs of our nation,” Nichols writes.

 Really? Why? Thus says the Lord of Hosts, “Abortion is murder.” Can we say that? Because, that’s the stance of the Church since the Didache.

Political quietism is an inevitable result of this type of pullback. And that is exactly what Nichols is urging. He writes, “Standing outside as a witness and a prophetic voice can be valuable for the church as it follows its mission.”

Is being outside possible?

This is a deep question of political theory that is beyond our scope; however, if we pare the question down a little we can pose it like this: Can an American citizen who has the responsibility of electing politicians be outside the political reality of partisan politics?

Since the individual Christian is the component of “the Church” can the church ever really be outside of politics?

And should it try to be?

Nichols quotes Darryl Hart who claims, “Efforts to use Christianity for public or political ends fundamentally distort the Christian religion.” However, this claim would only work if Christianity itself were not making political claims. Christianity states, “Kyrios Iesous!” Christianity claims that abortion is murder. And, if Nichols and his buddy Jim Wallis are to be believed, Christianity makes political claims about social justice.

However, we cannot stand outside politics any more than we can stand outside our family.

Both are natural ties that create on us obligations. God put us in our nation and in our family. We have duties (by biblical command) to both. Neglecting our political duties would make the Christian a freeloader and worse than an infidel.

Nichols’ book is an attempt to place Jesus into a Third Way like Bill Clinton or Tony Blair; in other words, to place Christians synthetically between Right and Left.

We should resist the urge to find middle ground. As the great French historian Marc Bloch cautioned, “There are in the world scholars whose good nature has worn itself out in seeking a middle ground between antagonistic statements. They are like the little chap who, asked for the square of the number two, when one neighbor whispered, ‘four’ and the other ‘eight,’ thought he had hit the mark in answering ‘six.’”

Perhaps compassion for the poor is not found in Leftist politics but rather exists in the free market? Perhaps compassion for the weakest is not a womb-to-the-tomb social welfare but banning abortion?

And we see Nichols use the words Social Justice before it was cool. And he makes sure to let you know Jesus was not a Republican.

He writes, “That Christ may have been apolitical does not suggest that Christ was unengaged engaged in the issues of poverty, social justice, the upholding of human dignity and stewardship of creation.”

This is an interesting list. Why would Nichols mention these and leave out the more important biblical commandment prohibiting murder, specifically abortion?

Conclusion: The Roadmap for the Great Reset of the American Church

Nichols book laid out the roadmap for Evangelical Elites to silence the church on key political issues. It is the path utilized by many Evangelicals pushing the church Leftward.

For example, notice this Twitter thread found by Stephen Wolfe where a professor explains the church should focus on something nebulous like witness instead of specific moral-political imperatives—the point of the thread is the church must expand its politics beyond conservative issues and be outside of politics.

Notice the professor’s push to neuter the Christian as an effective political force, ie: the ability to elect politicians by eschewing partisanship. In this view, it would be wrong to prioritize political goals and work for great good with people we disagree with.

This is a roadmap to political failure.

It is also a path to destruction.

It fails to point out the anti-Christian character of one political party—The Democrats—and the existential threat that Democrats pose to life and religious liberty.

Also, it fails to point out that Leftist economic policies are the enemy of the poor and that conservative free market economics reduce poverty. If you doubt the stats that I linked to above from Mises, then take heed of the anecdotal evidence from Venezuela. 

All of this is only the beginning. There will be more attempts to syncretize or in the words of Dr. Geisler hybridize Christianity with the new Woke worldview. And the process of rendering the church defenseless was laid out by Stephen Nichols way back in 2008.

And just so you know, Stephen J. Nichols is now a leader at Ligonier Ministries. Nichols is s chief academic officer and a Ligonier teaching fellow. And, you’ll enjoy what role he plays. According to the website, Nichols “helps to maintain the academic and theological integrity of the ministry.”

What If The Lord Does Not Accept Our Praise Music? — The Heidelblog

…We have been trained by the broader culture that how we feel when we come to worship is determined by the success of the instrumentation to create a good feeling. The assumption is that praise is created by the success of the musicians, as if we have to achieve concert quality music to truly praise God. This has led many to view their church music as the one aspect to their church that they perceive as not very good. What we need is a young, hip musician up front, graphic T, with a band behind him, who will bring us into a state of true praise. This has become the de facto standard of achieving true praise in American churches.

Those churches who do not mimic this model often find that their congregants view their music as mediocre, tolerating the sub-standard approach, believing that most other churches down the street do it better. For a variety of different reasons, they are willing to remain with the church, but they have given up hope that the music will ever get better.

Further, for most church shoppers, their entire church attendance is based on this question: how uplifting is the music? If the church music doesn’t achieve the status of elevating people to the rated quality of expected feeling, many people will disregard that church altogether, regardless of how faithful the ministry of the Word may be. The question is whether such an approach to praise is correct, and whether the church itself is to bear the weight of the responsibility to create what people assume is fulfilling praise. There may be variation in the circumstances of praise, but the question has to do with how true praise is accomplished.

It might be shocking to the reader to hear that much of what is so called praise today in worship is not received by the Lord. God certainly turns his ear away from not just vain repetitions, but also empty hearts due to empty theology. It should be self-evident that our feelings have to arise to something higher than animal instincts to truly praise the Lord. Read more»

No Cause to Blush — VCY America

Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed. (Isaiah 54.4)

We shall not be ashamed of our faith. Carping critics may assail the Scriptures upon which we ground our belief, but every year the Lord will make it more and more clear that in His Book there is no error, no excess, and no omission. It is no discredit to be a simple believer; the faith which looks alone to Jesus is a crown of honor on any man’s head and better than a star on his breast.

We shall not be ashamed of our hope. It shall be even as the Lord has said. We shall be fed, led, blest, and rested. Our Lord will come, and then the days of our mourning shall be ended. How we shall glory in the Lord who first gave us lively hope and then gave us that which we hoped for!

We shall not be ashamed of our love. Jesus is to us the altogether lovely, and never, never, shall we have to blush because we have yielded our hearts to Him. The sight of our glorious Well-beloved will justify the most enthusiastic attachment to Him. None will blame the martyrs for dying for Him. When the enemies of Christ are clothed with everlasting contempt, the lovers of Jesus shall find themselves honored by all holy beings, because they chose the reproach of Christ rather than the treasures of Egypt.

Walk in the Light — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

The living room of our home was dark when I quietly slipped a key into the lock and opened the door one night, walking slowly and softly so as not to awaken Vonette and our sons who were very young. Though they had been trained to put away their toys, somehow in the rush to get ready for bed that night they had left cars and a train and other favorite play things scattered throughout the living room.

You guessed it! I stepped on one with wheels that almost threw me to the floor before I could regain my balance. Many a person has broken a leg or an arm under similar circumstances, and some have even fallen and hit their heads on sharp objects, resulting in a fatal accident.

So it is in the spiritual realm. If we insist on walking in the darkness, we will inevitably stumble and take risks that can greatly jeopardize our spiritual health and in some cases, lead to our spiritual death by cutting ourselves off from God.

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness.” (John 8:12) In the first epistle of John we are told, “God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not tell the truth. If we walk in the light, as God is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses [and keeps on cleansing] us from all sin.”

There is only one person who qualifies to be the light of the world. That is Jesus. So how do we follow Him? What does it mean to walk in the light? Basically, it means that there is no unconfessed sin. It means that we are filled with the Holy Spirit, that we are feasting upon the Word of God and obeying His commands which include sharing our love for Christ with others.

Bible Reading: 1 Thessalonians 4:5-8

Through the enabling of the Holy Spirit, I shall walk in the light with Christ who is the light of the world, and reflect His light in such an attractive way that those who walk in darkness will be drawn to the light as moths are drawn to a burning candle.

I Can’t Say it Enough — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

Jesus loves you with an everlasting love.

I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.” Jeremiah 31:3 (NLT)

So often we take for granted the love of God. We often feel like there is no hope for us but I say to you today that regardless to where you have been, regardless to what you have done; God loves YOU.

Let the weight of your burdens rest upon His shoulders today. His sacrifice on the cross was the answer to your pain. No longer carry the weight of the world on your shoulders; walk in His grace, walk in His love.

Lord, thank you for always reminding me how You feel about me. I often struggle when it comes to recognizing and receiving Your love. Teach me to rest in the fact that You will never cast me aside. Your love for me will never fail. In Jesus name Amen

Reflections:

John 15:13 (NLT) “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

John 3:16 (NLT) “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Romans 5:8 (NLT) “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”

Psalm 8:4 (NIV)  “….what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”

One Sure Guide to Truth
Psalm 25:5; John 16:13; 2 Timothy 2:15

There is one sure and infallible guide to truth, and therefore one, and only one, corrective for error, and that is the Word of God.

When the Fool Is Truly Wise
1 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 3:8

In truth, pride is a blindness of heart, and it is foolish wisdom to wish to prefer oneself to others. And so, on the other hand, the same Apostle says: “If any man among you seem to be wise … let him become a fool that he may be wise.” The fool in this sense is truly wise, because before God it is great wisdom to judge oneself the inferior of all.

Physicians forbidden from questioning official health guides | WND

(NOQ REPORT) – When you visit your physician, you hope to be given unbiased information that will best support your health – nothing less, nothing more. If a physician is unable to speak freely, this independent relationship between doctor and patient ceases to exist. In the past, illegal marketing, gifts and bribes from drug companies were frontrunners in eroding doctors’ integrity – and patients’ trust in them.

Now, with censorship in the name of COVID-19 ramping up to unprecedented levels, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), which regulates the practice of medicine in Ontario, has issued a statement prohibiting physicians from making comments or providing advice that goes against the official narrative.

Actor Clifton Duncan shared the Orwellian message on Twitter, urging his followers to “Read this. Now. And then share it as much as you can.” Because, equally as disturbing as the notion of publicly dictating to physicians what they’re allowed to say, is the fact that, as Duncan said, the statement has a glaring omission, “The health and well-being of the patient.”

Frontline Doctors File Motion to Stop FDA Authorization of COVID Vaccines for Children

Article Image
 • https://needtoknow.news, Lifesite News

Plaintiffs argue that there is no justification for COVID-19 injections for children because the CDC admits that there is a statistical zero-rate for children dying from COVID-19 while there is a 12,000% increase in deaths from the vaccines. The Secretary of Health and Human Services has failed to make even the minimum statutory disclosures regarding risks and alternative treatments, so informed consent is not even possible for parents, while children are inherently incapable of such consent. The plaintiffs affirm in the motion that the EUAs should never have been granted and numerous laws have been broken in the process of granting these EUAs and pushing these injections on the American people.
A group of parents, along with America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) and written by Thomas Renz, Esq., filed a motion in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order “to prevent the expansion of the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for COVID-19 vaccines to include children under the age of 16,” according a statement released earlier today.

The motion was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama and is directed against Secretary Xavier Becerra and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It consists of numerous plaintiffs representing various interests and backgrounds, including “physicians and the parents of minor children who are alarmed about offering children experimental products that have not undergone long term animal or safety studies.”

Unethical Human Embryos Experiments Expanded, as Scientists Abandon a 14-Day Rule | Harbingers Daily

Despite the efforts of the previous administration, unethical experiments on preborn babies are continuing, with the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) abandoning its 14-day rule regarding embryo research. This will now allow scientists to grow and develop preborn baby embryos in a lab for longer periods of time.

According to Robin Lovell-Badge, one of those on the ISSCR taskforce that came up with this policy, explained the change on Nature.

He wrote, “Over the past five years, researchers have kept human embryos alive in culture longer than once thought possible and cultured stem cells into structures that model embryos and organs with unprecedented sophistication.

“Perhaps most striking is the creation of animal–human chimaeras by injecting cells from one species into an early-stage embryo from another species. This might enable, for example, a pig to produce a human heart. Other techniques include making eggs and sperm from stem cells, editing genomes and replacing organelles. These approaches could one day help to treat or avoid human disease, and are already improving biological understanding.”

This doesn’t sound enlightening—it sounds incredibly disturbing.
And now, scientists can push the boundaries of medicine, research and ethics even further. Instead of being generally limited to growing and experimenting on embryos for only 14- days before having to destroy them, researchers can continue to do so until at least 28 days or local laws permit (the U.K. and Australia also have 14-day rules in place).

To try an alleviate the public’s fears and make it sound permissible, scientists have tried to portray it as a way to determine what causes “miscarriages and congenital abnormalities.” This makes these changes seem helpful to the public, and not potentially dangerous and a way for scientists to grow “babies in a bottle” where an embryo is being developed in a lab solely for human experimentation.

In a press release, the vice president and research director for the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute wrote, “What has our world come to when the scientific ‘experts’ are encouraging growing living human beings in lab dishes? Human beings should not be treated as research fodder to be created, manipulated, and discarded at will, no matter their stage of development.

Canceling the already unethical and arbitrary ‘14-day rule’ degrades science and opens the door to horrific ‘baby in a bottle’ experiments with no limits, on tiny babies with fully functioning hearts, as well as developing brains, eyes, and ears.

“These experiments are not just unethical, they are needless and fly in the face of scientific advancements. If they were stopped today, no patient would be deprived of life-saving treatment – but importantly, it would break the cycle of exploitation and save lives by disincentivizing further destruction of innocent young humans. Experimenting on living human beings is not justified, no matter how much supposed review, regulation or oversight is sanctioned.

A zero-day rule should have been the guidance put out today to ensure respect for all human lives and to preserve scientific integrity.”

Scientists may portray these experiments as potentially useful and a way to address medical issues like a miscarriage, something that devastates women and couples every day all over the world. But is growing an embryo for medical experimentation and destruction the way to go? No, it isn’t.

Medical research and advancement should never come at the cost of human lives, preborn or born.


HD Editor’s Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?

In an interview with Pastor Billy Crone of sunrise Bible Church in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan Markell discussed this shocking push for genetic modification and how such experimentation is a Biblically prophesied sign of Jesus Coming.

Jan Markell reminds her listeners that one of the signs of the last days, as listed in Matthew 24:37 and Luke 17:26, would be the world’s close resemblance of what it was like in the ‘days of Noah’:

Luke 17:26 KJV – “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.”

“In the Genesis 6 account, there are two levels of wickedness going on there, that grieved the heart of God, for him to pull the trigger and say ‘that’s it, I’m gonna judge this whole planet.’ It was the general wickedness, the heart of man being continually wicked [Genesis 6:5]. I think we could all agree that’s being repeated today,” Jan Markell’s guest, Pastor Billy Crone, explains. “But it’s also the other wickedness in the hybridization of humanity [Genesis 6:1-4], that too is happening (It’s not coming, it’s happening), as well at the same time as this repeat of general wickedness. It’s really yet another Bible prophecy sign, howbeit a lot of people aren’t talking about it, that the return of Jesus Christ is imminent!”

JD Farag, in a Bible Prophecy Update, elaborated on this, stating that the days of Noah, discussed in Matthew 24, was not solely describing a time of violence and wicked hearts, but also a time of corrupted human DNA:

Satan, throughout human history, has sought to corrupt the human DNA with what seems to be his seed as it were. If Satan were able to do this, [think about this], he would, in effect, corrupt man’s DNA, which would mean that it was no longer human. Stay with me. Thus, if man’s DNA is no longer human, then man can no longer be redeemed. This, because of the fact that Jesus came as fully-God and fully-man (hu-man) to redeem man. So, if mankind’s DNA is not human, then it’s outside the scope of redemption. That’s the why behind the what.

Now the question becomes one of whether or not we have any scriptural evidence of this seed of Satan corrupting the human DNA? The answer is an astounding yes, and we need to look no further than to the book of Genesis again. This time the 6th chapter.

Let’s Breakdown verses 1-4, “When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, ‘My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal. Their days will be 120 years.”

Pay particular attention to verse 4, “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days – and also afterward – when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes [mighty giants] of old, men of renown.” You’ll forgive the frankness with which I say this, but these are demons that had sexual intercourse with women, human women, and bore children from them. In so doing, they corrupted the human DNA, which was Satan’s purpose from the very beginning for the reasons mentioned before.

It was because the human DNA was corrupted that God destroyed the earth with the flood in the days of Noah. Let’s go to Genesis 6, beginning in verse 8. I’ll read through to verse 12. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. This is the genealogy of Noah.”Genetics, the genome of Noah. “Noah was a just man, perfect …”

That word “perfect” does not mean Noah was perfect. No one’s perfect. Jesus was the only one that was perfect. This word perfect, speaking of Noah, carries with it the idea of intact. In other words, Noah’s genetics, Noah’s genes, genome, was intact – humanly. That’s what that means, “in his generations.” Again, the root word is genes, generations, genetics, generationally.

“Noah walked with God. And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt for all flesh [humankind] had corrupted their way on the earth.”

We have another question. The question now is, what does this have to do with us today? I’m so glad you asked. Thankfully, Jesus himself provides the answer in a prophecy that’s recorded in Matthew’s Gospel Chapter 24:37. Jesus says, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of man.” Now there are many parallels between Noah’s day and our day, but I believe none are as prophetically significant as the corruption of man’s DNA in our day.
