Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

WHAT THIS WOMAN IS SHOWN THE FUTURE OF THE UNITED STATES WILL SHAKE YOU TO YOUR CORE

"We were living underground in hiding, in a large but dark abandoned building of some sort."

What This Woman Was Shown About the Future of the United States Will Shake You to Your Core

Judgment is coming to America very soon. Recently, Julie Whedbee was shown what life will be like for believers in the United States during The Tribulation.
She has been having dreams and visions for over 20 years, and she is someone whom I have come to hold in high regard. What was revealed to her about the future of the United States is quite chilling, to say the least. She was shown a time when Christians have to live in hiding in a post-apocalyptic America where millions of people have already been killed. The following is a short excerpt from what she wrote about this experience:
We were living underground in hiding, in a large but dark abandoned building of some sort. There was no electricity and had not been for some time. I saw oil lamps and candles everywhere, and it was the only light we had. We were all dressed in oversized clothing and head wraps, doing our best to stay as inconspicuous as possible.
There were times we had to go out for items such as salt and oil and would barter with things we had found and collected for this reason. Food was scarce, to say the least. Water was also something we were having to look for constantly, and most important for survival.
As we traveled, we would do so only in the early pre-dawn hours, or at sunset, to do our best to avoid being targeted and taken away to be killed. I was told by Father this was the United States, after many of the judgments had happened, and He made me to understand that millions had died.
During this period of time, there will be no United States government as we know it today, and Christians will be hunted down and killed like animals. In fact, she says that there will be "open crucifixions in the streets":
The streets were very empty, there were only a few small businesses opened, and everything was run by the NWO. Martial law kept everyone in check, and as we traveled, we were watched and controlled by gunpoint. There were certain paths that had to be taken and if we were found traveling any other way, we were shot instantly. We never spoke while outside of our building.
There were open crucifixions in the streets, a gruesome and horrible sight, of anyone who publicly confessed Christianity. The bodies, once dead, were then left where they hung. Christianity was long gone in this country. Our group did the best we could to go at night and take the bodies of these precious souls back to where we were hiding, although we had no way to properly bury them. I saw rows of them on a far wall of our hiding place, wrapped in sheets and blankets, as this was all we had. I remember discussing with the others what we were going to do with these martyrs.
If you would like to read the entire prophecy, you can find the original right here.
Of course, Julie Whedbee is certainly not the only one who has been shown the future of America. Hundreds of others have also been warned that judgment is rapidly approaching. For example, the following is what Glynda Lomax was recently shown:
Much strife and confusion is coming to the earth. There will be eruptions of violence, murder, strife and infighting in various places.
Much tension shall abound, and brother shall strike out at brother. The line is being drawn tight.
(Note: In the spirit here, I saw a line, like a tightrope wire, being tightened and tightened, until it looked like it would just snap from the tension.)
When I speak to the angels, what is holding back the war will be released, and battles will break out in many places. War will break out. Fighting and killing will seem to be everywhere at once. This is the beginning of the end. Prepare your houses. Prepare your hearts, for the end is upon you. The end of all things quickly approaches.
My children in the earth, My true children, will shine like a beacon in this dark time. Miracles will abound, My Word will go forth with great boldness and authority as it did in the time My Son, Jesus, walked the earth, and many souls will be added unto My Kingdom. The end is very near now as these souls enter just before the door is shut.
Prepare your houses. Prepare your hearts, for the end is upon you."
Sadly, the vast majority of the population refuses to listen to the warnings.
As a nation, we need to repent and turn from our wicked ways, but that is simply not happening. Instead, just about every type of evil that you can possibly imagine is exploding in our society.
For example, earlier today I ran across a CNN article that talked about the epidemic of sexual assault that is taking place in America's nursing homes:
The unthinkable is happening at facilities throughout the country: Vulnerable seniors are being raped and sexually abused by the very people paid to care for them.
It's impossible to know just how many victims are out there. But through an exclusive analysis of state and federal data and interviews with experts, regulators and the families of victims, CNN has found that this little-discussed issue is more widespread than anyone would imagine.
Even more disturbing: In many cases, nursing homes and the government officials who oversee them are doing little—or nothing—to stop it.
If you read that entire CNN article, you may want to vomit by the time you get to the end of it.
And even our "Christian" leaders are involved in some of the most horrific things imaginable. If you can believe it, WND is reporting that George W. Bush's daughter Barbara will be the keynote speaker at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser:
Franklin Graham, the president and CEO of the humanitarian aid mission Samaritan's Purse and one of the world's best-known Christian leaders, slammed an upcoming Planned Parenthood fundraiser that will be keynoted by former president George W. Bush's daughter, Barbara, as akin to raising money for the Nazis during World War II.
In a Facebook post, Graham wrote: "Planned Parenthood is the #1 abortion provider in the United States. Raising funds for this organization is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp—like Auschwitz, except for innocent babies in their mother's wombs! Reports say they perform over 300,000 abortions per year. And this is the organization whose employees were caught on video trying to sell baby body parts over wine. Disgusting."
I could go on and on all day, but one more thing that I want to mention is our national addiction to pornography.
As I have discussed previously, one major survey discovered that 64 percent of all Christian men in the United States look at "adult material" at least once a month, and another major survey discovered that 68 percent of all Christian men in the United States look at "adult material" on a "regular basis."
Those numbers alone would explain why the institutional church in America is deader than a doornail right now.
And I was absolutely astounded when I learned that in just one year, more than 87 billion videos were watched on one adult website alone.
It does not take a genius to figure out why judgment is coming to America, and it is going to start with the church. Judgment begins with the house of God, and I want to share with you a portion of what Marty Breeden recently had to share on Facebook:
I've had this STRONG sense over the last few days, that the Lord is about to send, to and through His servants a message of Repentance first to the church and then to the lost world.
NOT ALL churches and Pastors will reject that message, but MOST will and those who deliver that message will NOT be welcomed to the vast majority of American pulpits.
These servants will burn with the Fire of the Living God in their hearts and they will not succumb to church politics or pressures from politically correct pastors.
Many of these fire-branded MEN AND WOMEN will circumvent the "church as normal" to deliver this message and they WILL NOT be stopped! They will not be popular or wealthy but they will be powerful, not of their own strength either, but it will be the undeniable power of God.
The Gospel will go forth with great power and influence and be confirmed as it was in the Book of Acts, with signs, wonders and mighty miracles. The people of the church will then have to determine if they are going to still be part of a dry, dead social club atmosphere, or are they going to seek the face of God and impact and change their world and the generation they were destined to influence.
We often speak of the "Coming Judgment" and it is coming indeed, but we often leave out the part that "Judgment MUST begin at the "House of God" (1 Pet. 4:17)
Sadly, the institutional church doesn't want to hear voices such as this, and instead, they are exalting people that speak endlessly of prosperity.
But the Word of God has a warning about those that only speak of prosperity. The following is what Jeremiah 28:7-9 says in the Modern English Version:
"Nevertheless hear now this word that I speak in your ears and in the ears of all the people. The prophets of old who have been before me and before you prophesied both against many countries and against great kingdoms, of war and disaster and pestilence. As for the prophet who prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet comes to pass, then that prophet shall be known as one whom the Lord has truly sent.
A great shaking is coming, and this is going to include a great shaking of the institutional church.
But we should be thankful for the shaking that is coming, because multitudes will be shaken into the Kingdom of God, and an immense wave of glory will be unleashed all over the world.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM COMPARES GEORGE W. BUSH'S DAUGHTER SPEECH TO RAISE MONEY FOR NAZI DEATH CAMPS

Franklin Graham Compares George W. Bush's Daughter Speech to Raising Money for Nazi Death Camps

George W. Bush's daughter Barbara Bush will be the keynote speaker at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser. Evangelist Franklin Graham rebuked the move as akin to fundraising for Nazi Germany death camps.
"Planned Parenthood is the #1 abortion provider in the United States. Raising funds for this organization is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp—like Auschwitz, except for innocent babies in their mother's wombs!" Graham posted to Facebook
"Reports say they perform over 300,000 abortions per year. And this is the organization whose employees were caught on video trying to sell baby body parts over wine. Disgusting," he continued. 
George W. Bush is considered the most pro-life president on record, according to CNS News. 
"In the annals of history, George W. Bush will be remembered as a president who believed and fought to protect innocent human life," Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America (CWA), said. "While we'll never know how many lives were saved, and rarely will a person know that his or her life was rescued because of his policies, we do know that he set a standard that others can follow."

SCHOOLS NOW PUSH 11-YEAR-OLDS QUESTION THEIR GENDER IDENTITY

One school allows children as young as 11 to question their gender identity.

Schools Now Push 11-Year-Olds to Question Their Gender Identity

A leading girls' school is allowing pupils to change their names to boys' names and wear boys' clothes.
Pupils over the age of 16 at St Paul's Girls' School in West London can now enter a formal process to self-identify as boys or as "gender-neutral." 
So far, up to 10 sixth-form girls at the school are understood to have done so. 

Pupils as Young as 11 Can 'Discuss' Issue

St Paul's is a high-performing private school with alumnae such as Harriet Harman, MP, and actress Rachel Weisz.
Under the new policy, pupils over 16 can submit a written request to identify as male or "gender neutral."
Pupils between 11-15 "can have discussions at any time" to explore their "gender identity," and will receive help to prepare for an application "at the right time". 

Parents 'Ordinarily' Involved

Under the policy, the parents of girls applying to self-identify in this way would "ordinarily" be expected to know about the request and "preferably" would be "fully involved in such discussions."
The charter also says girls can wear boys' clothes and audition for male parts in plays. The new boys' names will be used on sports team lists, with families abroad on exchange visits, in assemblies and in lessons. 

'Moving to Point Where Gender Is a Choice'

Its headmistress, Clarissa Farr, said: "We are moving to the point where your gender is a choice.
"I see this as a social phenomenon, especially in London, which is much talked about among school leaders."
She went on: "We have had an LGBT society for a long time. The school is very relaxed about sexual orientation, but this is a different issue. This is about gender reassignment. That is a new thing for us.
"We consulted the pupils to find out what the issues were. Their main preoccupation has been to look after people who don't want to identify as one gender or another." 

'Legally Male'

So far, no pupils have come forward to say that they wish to undergo medical procedures and legally 'become males.'
If they did, St Paul's would no longer be able to educate them. 

'Gender Neutral' Language

Last year, the Girls' Schools Association, which includes St Paul's, advised head teachers to use gender-neutral words such as "pupils," "people" or "students" in place of "girls."
Guidance was also issued from the Boarding School's Association that advised boarding school teachers to refer to pupils who self-identify as the opposite gender as "zie." 

'Tragic'

Commenting on the news, Andrea Williams, Chief Executive of Christian Concern, said:
"It is tragic to see that a high-achieving school with a good reputation is capitulating to the current social agenda.
"These are formative years for these girls, and introducing the option to self-identify as something they are not is only going to cause confusion, which may be long-lasting.
"Instead, the teachers should be helping the girls to celebrate their God-given gender and empowering them to become well-rounded women."

DeVos APPOINTMENT A HUGE MISTAKE!



February 27, 2017
DeVos appointment a H U G E mistake!
By Rev. Austin Miles


When Betsy DeVos' name came up as candidate for Secretary of Education, a howl of protests rose from both sides of the aisle. Being Trump, the President would not budge and managed to get her into that position. Already the ramifications are, well, HUGE!
The very first action of Ms. Devos, as Secretary of Education, was to buck Trump who had overturned Obama's law to grant rights for men to have access to girl's bathrooms, showers and locker rooms everywhere, including schools.

This insane Obama maneuver was properly cancelled by executive order of our new president. 
Yet, according to numerous news reports, Ms. DeVos began her term by opposing the reversal of the knuckle-headed Obama transgender school mandate.
Ms. DeVos told President Trump that she was uncomfortable because of the potential harm that rescinding the protections could cause transgender students. 
Harm to the deviants? What about the majority of the kids?
The New York Times reported: "Attorney General Jeff Sessionswho strongly opposes expanding gay, lesbian and transgender 'rights,' fought Ms. DeVos on the issue and pressed her to relent because he could not go forward without her consent. The order must come from the Justice and Education Departments."

Tony Perkins
 wrote: 
"They went on to say that for nine months, parents, local districts, and states have been storming the courthouse doors to fight back on the decree, which insisted that every public school force students into the humiliating situation of sharing showers, restrooms, and locker rooms, with members of the opposite sex."
These kids do not need co-ed showers, locker rooms and toilets. They need counseling. Mental illness should be treated, not celebrated.


Ms. DeVos stated: "The Education Department's Office of Civil Rights remains committed to investigate all claims of discrimination, bullying and harassment against those who are the most vulnerable in our schools." 
And who might that be? It is certainly not the degenerates.
Mrs. DeVos has bought the leftist belief that "objective, immutable biological sex has no intrinsic meaning, including in regard to modesty and privacy." A federal district court in Texas, however, held that the term 'sex' unambiguously refers to – now get this – BIOLOGICAL SEX! Case closed!

LifeSiteNews reported earlier that Ms. DeVos and her husband Dick DeVos have a long history of siding with homosexual and transgender advocates, and against pro-family and tea party Republicans in her native Michigan. So how on earth could President Trump even consider turning her loose on all of our school children? President Trump needs to rescind her appointment without delay.

Now let's take a look at Betsy's husband, Richard DeVos a flim flam business man who headed the ultimate pyramid financial scheme, AMWAY.
Richard DeVos took the more folksy name "Rich" to make him appear that way to disguise his true identity, a ruthless businessman who did not care who he hurt as his love for mammon became an unquenchable thirst. You will see below how and why he was sued by Proctor & Gamble.

Richard DeVos, a star in certain church circles, is a man who loves being wealthy to the extent that he flaunts it, and at times appears to be showing off. He dresses the part of a very successful businessman and his overall carriage would seem to confirm it.

Having seen and observed him at several minister's conferences where he was always the featured speaker, he would make a point of stating from the podium, "Don't ask me, I'm not going to give any of you any money." The sheeple would give a knowing muffled laugh acknowledging that they knew he was wealthy, that they were awed by that fact and they would like to have some of that money.

The name chosen for this company, AMWAY, was a derivative of the Name God, Who Identified Himself to Moses, when asked what name He should be known as. God answered, "I AM THAT I AM." (Exodus 3:14.) So with not so subtle implications, AMWAY would be to Christians, God's Way. Clever.

In his quest to make a fortune, DeVos expanded this pyramid scheme selling operation. AMWAY sold household products that would be hustled, door to door, to one's own family or in contacts developed through social circles, neighbors, civic organizations and of course, the church. 
The goal is to recruit more salespeople. Indeed, the first people the recruits were to hustle were their own families, where sales were certain. Then they would go to others.

An ambitious salesman/recruit gives an illustrated screen presentation of the effectiveness of the products, convinces the 'mark' (carnival term for sucker) of the fortune to be made, as each salesman recruited would have part of their commissions directed up the pyramid to the one that recruited him, and the one who recruited the recruiter who....and on it goes. 
It is the ultimate 'Pyramid Scheme" that legitimate businesses frown upon.
It is to be remembered that Proctor & Gamble, who also dealt in household products were hit by vicious rumors proclaiming that their symbols are satanic and that an executive with P&G stated on The Phil Donahue TV Show that they were supporters of Satan. 
Nobody checked the Phil Donahue show to verify this. We did. The program directors declared no such program ever took place and no appearance by a P&G executive ever took place. We were invited to view their library.
The particular church folk mentioned were (and are) quick and anxious to run with any damaging rumor about anyone, especially someone in the public eye.
The false stories took a devastating toll on P&G. THEN they learned that these rumors began with Rich DeVos who started the whole campaign, wanting to knock out competition with lies and slander, typical tactics of this misled church body. 
P&G sued Devos along with AMWAY and were awarded over a million dollars.
One sales technique of recruiters is to make the mark dissatisfied with what they presently have; "You shouldn't settle for this, you should have a bigger house (photo shown) or, top-of-the line car (photos of Rolls Royce) and be able to enjoy life" (photos shown of tropical paradise complete with palm trees and bikini-clad girls).
At a service I did at Trinity Assembly of God in Charlotte, Pastor Calvin Bacon introduced me to Dexter Yeager who had become a close friend of Jim Bakker host of The PTL Club. Yeager had become a legend of sorts. In his forties, he had found himself out of work, joined AMWAY and amassed a fortune, along with several banks he acquired. Now he had the best of everything, including a fleet of limousines for his personal use.

Yeager had the unusual habit of carrying a shoulder satchel. "Take a look inside," he invited me. I reached in and came out with a fist full of one hundred dollar bills. "Good Lord," I exclaimed, "How much is in there?" "Fifteen-twenty thousand dollars," he answered nonchalantly. "This is my pocket money."

Yeager put on a good show as he encouraged Christians to indulge in the sins of covetousness, greed pride, lust for power and the root of all evil, the LOVE of money. Get that? He encouraged sin in order to recruit and make more money. 
And this is where the beginning of the spectacular downfall of Jim Bakker began.
It was DeVos's man, Yeager, who corrupted Bakker by convincing him he should not be satisfied with what he had. Jim so admired Yeager, his lifestyle and the money he was able to make, that he let Yeager sign him up as an AMWAY representative. He then began to hustle each studio audience, usually about 200 a day that came to the telecast, making his followers, 'marks,' instead of souls he had been entrusted with.

But let's get back to Richard DeVos:

Checking internet sites later, I found one that had a stock of Apologetics books. That was a subject of interest since a concentration on my Bachelor's Degree would be Apologetics.

When I went on the Website I learned it was a news and products site owned by Rich DeVos. As I started checking through, I found a whole section devoted to vicious attacks against me, with not one truthful "fact." It was all written as truth by this "Christian man."

Shocked, I was prepared to sue him and had three atheist lawyers ready to take the case pro-bono, and that included the ACLU. Even though, no doubt I could have won, the words, "unequally yoked" came to mind.

I deeply felt that I should show that there is at least one genuine Christian in this situation, and withdrew the case knowing that this case would serve the atheists in discrediting Christianity, giving more "proof" to the public that Christianity is bad and should be avoided – even disallowed. No gain would be worth that result. I take my calling seriously.
I called DeVos' office. He would not talk to me, his staff was rude, and his secretary screamed at me. This was not a novelty. When I tried to call Ray Rachels, the L.A. District Superintendent of this off-shoot denomination, his sweet, cute little secretary screamed at me. I kid you not.

Smith Wigglesworth, a totally Spirit Filled man was once taken to visit an asylum for the criminally insane – inmates with the definite spirit of Satan within them. 
As he entered a door at one end of the huge room, all the inmates began screaming, yelling and pounding the bars of their cells with metal cups.
When Wigglesworth went out the door on the other end, the inmates suddenly quieted down and were at peace. Ironically, this shows a distinct similarity as the Spirit of Satan clashes with the spirit of God, causing chaos and screaming.

There is more than enough data and facts about Betsy and Richard DeVos to warrant removing Betsy DeVos from the position as Secretary of Education. It is to President Trump's detriment to leave this loose cannon in charge of our public schools. Indeed it would be unthinkable.

My comments: Any person who would support Obama's Bathroom Edict is Wrapped, Immoral, Indecent and certainly not worthy to be Secretary of Education. Where were President Trump's Christian Advisers when this selection was made?  

TRUMP SHOULD 'DRAIN THE SWAMP' AT THE FBI BEFORE TERROR STRIKES AGAIN



February 27, 2017
Trump should 'drain the swamp' at the FBI before terror strikes again
By Cliff Kincaid

Bill Gates was recently quoted as saying that bioterrorism could kill more people than nuclear war, but that Western governments are not ready to deal with it. The situation may be worse than he thinks. What news stories about his remarks at the Munich Security Conference did not explain is that the FBI has still failed to resolve the question of who carried out the post-9/11 anthrax attacks on America.

Some of the evidence points to al Qaeda, and there are reports that other Islamic terrorist groups, such as ISIS, are now developing biological weapons.
For his part, President Donald Trump is currently engaged in a feud with the FBI over "illegal leaks" that he wants investigated and stopped.
Trump has a right to be concerned, even alarmed. And he certainly has a right to know the full extent of the corruption that ran rampant in the Bureau during its investigation of the post-9/11 anthrax attacks, known as Amerithrax. 
The gross mishandling of the case serves as an example of how not to conduct a national security investigation involving weapons of mass destruction. It is also a warning that something similar – or perhaps more catastrophic – could happen again unless changes are made at the FBI involving monitoring the activities of jihadist groups on American soil.

We noted at the time that the anthrax letters, which were mailed to American media organizations and two senators, featured the phrases "Death to America," "Death to Israel," and "Allah is God." 
These were indications that an Islamic extremist had written them. But the FBI dismissed these obvious leads as a diversion intended to falsely blame radical Islam and focus attention away from the real perpetrator, supposedly a right-winger with a military background.
In the end, the FBI says, "The Amerithrax Task Force – which consisted of roughly 25 to 30 full-time investigators from the FBI, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and other law enforcement agencies, as well as federal prosecutors from the District of Columbia and the Justice Department's Counterterrorism Section – expended hundreds of thousands of investigator work-hours on this case. Their efforts involved more than 10,000 witness interviews on six different continents, the execution of 80 searches, and the recovery of more than 6,000 items of potential evidence during the course of the investigation. 
The case involved the issuance of more than 5,750 grand jury subpoenas and the collection of 5,730 environmental samples from 60 site locations. In addition, new scientific methods were developed that ultimately led to the break in the case – methods that could have a far-reaching impact on future investigations."

Still, independent experts believe the FBI did not solve the case.
While experts believe al Qaeda was behind the attacks, a story about Bill Gates' sensational warning about bioterrorism in the British Guardian reported that "US and UK intelligence agencies have said that Islamic State has been trying to develop biological weapons at its bases in Syria and Iraq." The publication said, however, that these intelligence agencies "have played down the threat, saying that the terrorists would need people with the necessary skills, good laboratories and a relatively calm environment free from the confusion and chaos of conflict zones."
Playing down the threat of jihadist bioterrorism is something that U.S. intelligence agencies, led by the FBI, did in the case of the anthrax attacks. In 2010, the FBI officially blamed those attacks, which killed five Americans, on a dead man, U.S. Army scientist Bruce Ivins.

The independent investigators, including historian Kenneth J. Dillon, a former Foreign Service officer and intelligence analyst, and attorney Ross Getman, an expert on al Qaeda's biowarfare program, are asking President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to reopen the anthrax mailings investigation. This could lead, Dillon argues, to exonerating an innocent man, identifying the real al-Qaeda perpetrator, and getting to the bottom of what went wrong in America's premier federal law enforcement agency.

In 2002, then-Rep. Pence wrote a letter asking why international links weren't being probed in the anthrax mailings.
From the start of the FBI's inquiry, the Bureau seemed determined to eliminate al Qaeda as a source of the attacks. Former government scientist Dr. Stephen Hatfill's career was destroyed by the FBI as they sought to frame him. Eventually, the Department of Justice paid Hatfill a multi-million dollar settlement in recognition of the fact that they had persecuted an innocent man.
At the time, Hatfill spoke to an Accuracy in Media conference, focusing on how American reporters were assisting the FBI campaign against him. For example, Pulitzer Prize-winning liberal columnist Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times wrote five columns and thousands of words urging FBI scrutiny of the scientist.

After paying Hatfill a financial settlement, the FBI picked on another alleged villain, Dr. Bruce Ivins, and hounded him until he committed suicide. Ivins had worked at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland.

Federal authorities conceded that al Qaeda intended its next wave of terrorism after the 9/11 attacks was to be chemical or biological attacks. Medical reports suggested that two of the 9/11 hijackers may have come into contact with anthrax. Yet the FBI consistently diverted attention away from al Qaeda.
There was a chance to review the case in 2010, when bipartisan congressional support was growing for an examination of the FBI's gross mishandling of the post-9/11 anthrax attacks. But President Barack Obama's representatives told Congress that the FBI's conduct shouldn't be scrutinized.
Historian Dillon notes that Richard Lambert, who headed the FBI's anthrax investigation from 2002 to 2006, filed suit in the U.S. District Court for Eastern Tennessee against Attorney General Eric Holder, et al., for retaliating against him for his whistleblowing about the FBI's handling of the case. In his lawsuit, he criticizes the FBI's efforts to railroad the prosecution of Ivins in the face of daunting exculpatory evidence.

When we asked him for an interview, Lambert declined, saying, "All of the information the Justice Department is withholding from the American people is either restricted from disclosure by the Privacy Act, governed by non-disclosure, non-disparagement clauses in other settlement agreements, or classified as national security information. 
The only avenue for remedying the government's wealth of material omissions in this case would be through a congressional inquiry. Although bills have been introduced in the past to establish such an inquiry committee, they never became law."

The independent investigators believe that Freedom of Information Act requests that are now being stonewalled by the FBI could lead to major breakthroughs and the clearing of Ivins if the FBI is ordered by the Trump administration to cooperate.
In his remarks on possible bioterrorism, Bill Gates said, "Imagine if I told you that somewhere in this world, there's a weapon that exists – or that could emerge – capable of killing tens of thousands, or millions, of people, bringing economies to a standstill, and throwing nations into chaos. You would say that we need to do everything possible to gather intelligence and develop effective countermeasures to reduce the threat."

Such a weapon could be in the hands of radical Islamic extremists. But if the FBI still hasn't solved the matter of the post-9/11 anthrax attacks, what assurance do we have that the Bureau could prevent or solve the next devastating wave of biological attacks?

President Trump and Vice President Pence have every reason in the world to be concerned about what is happening at the FBI. They could, and should, reopen the anthrax investigation. It would be an opportunity to expose and remove the corruption that may remain in the Bureau and that makes us vulnerable to another biological terrorist attack.

THREAT TO MILLENNIALS - A FEDERAL DEBT OF $20 TRILLION

Total federal debt set to pass $20 trillion, a huge threat to millennials

Although it received little attention, total federal debt will soon surpass an incredible $20 trillion. To put that in perspective, that's larger than the entire economies of China, Japan, and Germany combined. With President Trump's first federal budget expected soon, this should be a call to action to recognize our national debt for the threat it is.
Getting our debt under control will require policymakers to address the primary drivers of it: Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Collectively, these programs consume 71 percent of our entire federal budget, with interest on our debt now costing an estimated $223 billion per year. These programs largely account for the near-quadrupling of our national debt over the last two decades.
Spending within our means is a simple concept, but the policy has proven difficult to enact. Both Republicans and Democrats have shown no commitment to curb overspending over the last 20 years, with nominal spending levels rising under every single presidential administration, regardless of party, dating back to President Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s.
The nonchalance many policymakers have toward our national debt has many millennials thinking, "Why should I care?" After all, spending decisions from Washington can seem intangible and meaningless for what matters most to young Americans.
But failing to act and leaving future generations with the bill, particularly for millennials—the single largest and most diverse generation of Americans—will have severe negative effects. If not addressed, the debt and Washington's culture of spending threatens to harm all of us, limiting economic opportunity, earning power, and the ability to repay student loans, buy a home, or start a new business. If we don't put Medicare and Social Security on a sustainable path, they'll be bankrupt long before we reach retiring age.
We're already seeing some of these harms in our lives today. By almost every economic indicator, millennials are struggling when compared to our older counterparts.
Young adults face persistently higher than average youth unemployment rates, along with wages that haven't risen in nearly a decade. While millennials have a strong desire to start businesses, only 3.6 percent of Americans under the age of 30 own or have a stake in a private business—just one-third the rate of business ownership when many of us were born in 1989.
Due to this lack of economic opportunity, we also experience higher levels of poverty than at prior similar points in our lives. For early boomers in 1979, only 8 percent were living in poverty; for millennials in 2013, the percentage of those living in poverty doubled to 16 percent.
Big-spending policies in education have also mired many of us in affordable debt. Since 1985, college tuition has grown by more than 500 percent, rising significantly faster than healthcare, gas, shelter and food. Nearly 70 percent of the class of 2014 graduated with student loan debt, with an average of nearly $30,000 per borrower. Too many of these graduates are still defaulting on their loans as the student loan default rate is close to 12 percent.
The start of any new presidential administration presents a crossroads to the direction or our country. Elected leaders in Washington can help to reverse these trends and make the tough choices to control spending and pay down the national debt, or they can continue leaving future generations with crippling debt that is not of their own making.
It shouldn't be a hard decision. Failure to address our federal spending addiction will hamstring the economy and harm the American people for future generations to come. Policymakers of all parties should seize this opportunity and provide solutions that will address the economic challenges facing millennials.

My comments: The Immoral American Government, over the decades, has accumulated this Debt and have Spent the Future for the Millennials. It is doubtful that either the Politicians nor the Public have the stomach to Balance a Budget let alone pay back this Enormous Debt. Further, it is God Almighty that brings Prosperity, and America is in Overt Rebellion against God and His Word. 

RESTORATION AND WINDOWS OF GRACE: JESUS AND TRUMP

BETWEEN THE LINES

RESTORATION AND WINDOWS OF GRACE: JESUS AND TRUMP

Exclusive: Joseph Farah asks if God has given U.S. 'a refrain from imminent judgment'

As someone who has studied Bible prophecy for most of my life, I have been bemused by some of what I have considered over-the-top, sensational proclamations and assertions by fellow believers about Donald Trump being God’s chosen one for a time such as this.
As much as I am thrilled with most everything I’ve seen from the new White House – from the key appointments, to the first priorities, to the consistency in actions, to the tenacity and steadfastness of his heart, honestly, I’ve had trouble swallowing that Trump is God’s Cyrus for the “restoration” of America’s greatness.
wndb-Farah-Restitution-of-All-Things-COVER

In addition, in my new book, “The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age,” I take a close look at the ultimate restoration of planet earth – what happens when Jesus comes back and what it will be like during His Kingdom.
Then someone posed this question to me: “Where do Jonathan Cahn’s insights fit in with the Trump revolution?”
It made me think.
People who read what I write consistently know what a profound impact Jonathan Cahn’s teachings have had on me personally over the last five years. 
When I read “The Harbinger,” it was like a life-shaking revelation. It gave me a profound new understanding of the importance of repentance in the life of a nation. 
It prompted a redirection of my life with a new emphasis on the spiritual things and less on the political.
Don’t get me wrong. I understood the necessity of repentance in the life of each individual. It was a matter of life and death. But there was something in the way Cahn explained 2 Chronicles 7:14 that gave me, I believe, with the anointing of the Holy Spirit, a subtle new way to understand what this meant for nation-states like Israel and America.
It was as simple as this: God was not expecting the populations of entire nations suddenly to turn to Him. 
Rather, He was expecting – and possibly demanding – that believers in those nations do so, if they wanted to see their countries saved from imminent judgment. It’s a familiar pattern throughout the Hebrew Scriptures.
That seemed reasonable – and hopeful.
And I absolutely believe America has been on the brink of imminent judgment.
Before I move on, let me ask you: Did you believe that, too? 
If so, do you think it’s possible that Jonathan Cahn’s profound wake-up call issued in “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” and his other best-selling works may have been more successful than we thought – leading to a respite for America, a Sabbath rest, if you will, a refrain from imminent judgment, a window of grace?
Cahn’s teachings, books, television appearances and movies have prompted continuously the forming of prayer movements in churches, in para-church ministries and networks across the country. There have been annual days of prayer and repentance with, by all accounts, the participation of hundreds of thousands – maybe far more.
I’m entertaining this idea right now in attempting to answer that question from a reader – as well as my own curiosity and longing to know what’s happening in America – a seemingly shocking, perhaps miraculous, megashift.
I’m not forming a conclusion, nor jumping to one.
Clearly, there is only one “restitution of all things” prophesied in the Bible. It’s what all the prophets from Creation forward point to with hope. It’s what I have been researching continuously for several years.
But there are many examples of windows of grace in the history of the Israel and through the history of the world. I strongly suspect we may be experiencing one of the latter right now.
The dizzying pace of Trump’s complete reversal of the very policies that seemed to be dragging America down into imminent judgment is, after all, remarkable. Who would have predicted it? Did it seem even in the realm of possibility in the near term – in 2017?
Even for me, someone who was deeply moved by Cahn’s message and who predicted Trump would win in a landslide mandate eight months before Election Day, I admit I didn’t imagine just how faithful the new president would be to his campaign promises. I didn’t see how moved he would be by the support of Bible-believing Christians. I didn’t see how radically different he would govern from his predecessors – especially his most recent.
But that’s just what he has done – and, always barring some unforeseen catastrophe, it bodes well for the immediate future of the country.
So that leads me to the inevitable question: Did enough of America’s believers, His people who are called by His name, humble themselves, seek His face and turn from their wicked ways? I know there was a shaking of God as a direct result of Jonathan Cahn’s teachings. I saw it. I heard it. I felt it. But I am not God.
Could it be that a spiritual earthquake took place between 2012 and 2016 just as so many of us had hoped and prayed for individually?
Could the Holy Spirit have used that profound and amazing teaching to shake American like Jonah shook Nineveh – thus buying us time?
Could it be we are reaping the practical political benefit of the individual prayers of millions touched by those teachings?
I don’t know. But I’m throwing it out there for you to consider.
As always, I’d appreciate your feedback, your thoughts and your prayers of gratitude that we may indeed be experiencing one of those windows of grace from the Almighty.
