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.

Bible Studies at the White House: Who's Inside This Spiritual Awakening?

WASHINGTON – A spiritual awakening is underway at the White House.
Some of the most powerful people in America have been gathering weekly to learn more about God's Word, and this Trump Cabinet Bible study is making history.
They've been called the most evangelical Cabinet in history – men and women who don't mince words when it comes to where they stand on God and the Bible.
Ralph Drollinger of Capitol Ministries told CBN News, "These are godly individuals that God has risen to a position of prominence in our culture."
They're all handpicked by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
For more, tune into Faith Nation, Wed. @12:30pm, on facebook.com/cbnnews. White House Correspondent Jennifer Wishon will be LIVE to discuss this Bible study's impact on the White House climate.
"I don't think Donald Trump has figured out that he chained himself to the Apostle Paul," Drollinger laughed.
Drollinger is a former NBA-playing giant of a man with an even bigger calling. He founded Capitol Ministries with the idea that if you change the hearts of lawmakers, then their Christian world view will guide them to make good policies.
He's started Bible studies in 40 state capitols, a number of foreign capitols, teaches weekly studies in the U.S. House and Senate and now leads about a dozen members of President Trump's Cabinet in weekly studies of the scriptures.
Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo are just a few of the regulars.
"It's the best Bible study that I've ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they're so noble; they're so learned," Drollinger said.
It's groundbreaking since he doesn't think a formal Bible study among executive Cabinet members has been done in at least 100 years.
America's top cop, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, also attends the study.
"He'll (Jeff Sessions) go out the same day I teach him something and I'll see him do it on camera and I just think, 'Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable and they're at Bible study every week they're in town,'" Drollinger said.
President Trump is invited to attend the Bible studies, too. Each week he receives a copy of Drollinger's teaching.
And Vice President Pence is also planning to join the study as his schedule permits. He also serves as a sponsor.
In Pence, Drollinger sees many similarities to biblical figures like Joseph, Mordecai and Daniel – all men who rose to the number two position in governments at different times in history.
"Mike Pence has respect for the office. He dresses right - like it says Joseph cleaned himself up before he went to stand before the Pharaoh," Drollinger told CBN News.
"Mike Pence has uncompromising biblical tenacity and he has a loving tone about him that's not just a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal," he continued. "And then fourthly, he brings real value to the head of the nation."   
Like others, Drollinger often compares President Trump to biblical strongman Samson.
"I just praise God for them," he said. "And I praise God for Mike Pence, who I think with Donald Trump chose great people to lead our nation."

Norming Genocide: Calif Bakery Paints GIANT Terror Mural Honoring Jihad Murderer

Why not a swastika mural? Or a mural of Himmler or Osama Bin Laden? It’s the same thing. This is the norming of dehumanization and genocide.
It’s incitement to murder. How is that legal?
The 69-year-old Muslim terrorist, Rasmea Odeh,  was convicted in the 1969 supermarket bombing in Israel that killed two Hebrew University students. Odeh was also convicted of bombing and damaging the British Consulatefour days later.


It’ll make you throw up your flatbread.
By Trey sanchez, Truth revolt(thanks to Todd):
Bakery in Oakland, California, owned by a Palestinian-Syrian, has a large painted mural dedicated to convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh near its front counter. Odeh killed two Israeli students in a 1969 food market bombing for which she only served 10 years of a life sentence in prison. She was released as part of a plea deal in exchange for a captured Israeli soldier. In 1995, Odeh moved to Chicago via Jordan but lied on her immigration papers, checking “no” for past convictions of crimes. She is scheduled to be deported to Jordan in August for the fraud, but not before being lionized by the bakery and just about everyone on the Left as a progressive icon.
Reem Assil, the owner of the Arab-infused Reem’s California, considers Odeh, an organizer of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine which carried out several other foiled bombings, as a mere political activist wrongly arrested and convicted by Israel. She also believes Odeh was sexually tortured into a confession by Israeli authorities. And because of that, Assil says Odeh deserves the giant portrait because she is an “emblem of resilience” and told a Berkeley-based food critic that Odeh is a modern day Malcolm X:
“[Odeh] embodies the resilience of Arab women fighting for justice in this country. She is an elder to a lot of us younger women who are activists and want to do right among our community.”
Assil, a former labor activist and community organizer, views her bakery as a place where activism and culture meet. The mural, she said, “pays our respect to people like [Odeh] who have had to endure.” As an added social justice bonus, Odeh has a painted pin on her Islamic head covering of 22-year-old Oakland resident Oscar Grant who was killed by police in 2009.
Others who heap praise on Odeh include Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, who heralds Odeh regularly and was recently “honored” to share the stage with her at an anti-Israel event. Both women helped organize the Women’s March after President Trump’s inauguration and Odeh co-authored the manifesto for the militant feminist “Day Without a Woman” strike two months later.
Here is the bakery owner defending her pro-terrorism decoration:

Not everyone in Oakland is happy about the mural. Organized protests outside the bakery have been going on since it opened. Because most may be unaware of Odeh’s past, the protesters stand in front of the entrance holding pictures of Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner, the two Hebrew University students killed by the bomb Odeh planted in 1969. Some have even held vigils for the murdered Jews in front of the eatery.
But in kind, those protests and vigils have been targeted by anti-Israel activists who have physically attacked protesters, including the elderly, and destroyed the pictures of the murdered men. Below is footage from a recent protest, which are in danger of being shut down by Assil who is trying to complain of trespassing:
As Legal Insurrection’s Miriam Elman concluded, “The effort to stifle and silence Oakland’s vigils in honor of Rasmea Odeh’s victims is even more offensive and grievous than the fact that Reem’s California is decorated with a giant image of her face.”

“The problem is colossal”: Influx of Muslim migrant unaccompanied “minors”

Just think of where and what this “army” will doing in say, five years.
Jean-René Lecerf  is président du conseil départemental du Nord.
Rough translation thanks to Alexandre
Influx of foreign minors: Jean-René Lecerf raises the alarm bell The president of the Department of the North is no longer able to cope with the influx of unaccompanied foreign minors. “The problem is colossal,” he says. We observe this phenomenon in the North and in other departments. ” This immigration has increased significantly in recent years. Essentially young people from sub-Saharan countries, from North Africa, 70% of whom are migrants from Guinea but also from Malians, Algerians and Moroccans. “A peaceful invasion. It is an economic and educational migration.
 According to the law, departmental councils must ensure the reception and care of foreign isolated minors (MIE) in France. A decree of June 24, 2016 gives a legal framework to the agreement of 2013 between the French Ministry of Justice and the Assembly of French Departments (ADF). More than 600 minors in care More and more foreign minors are arriving in the North. In 2011, the Department was responsible for 195 minors. “Today we have 930 young people,” says President Lecerf. In 2017, we saw an increase of 30%, or 1,200 people who arrived in the North. We will have 600 more unaccompanied minors, a budget of 36 million euros for 170 euros for the day in the home. To know the lodging, the cover and a small surveillance. At this rate, we will never be able to endure this effort. “
The urgency of the situation led to a recent meeting between President Lecerf, the Prefect and the judicial authorities for better border control. They also have the difficulty that some young migrants lie about their true age using false papers. And sometimes the jurisprudence obliges the Department to take charge of young adults. “This is a call for air,” insists Jean-René Lecerf. Our capacities are saturated. So I asked that the state take care of these young people from their majority. We are in the same boat. As early as the last parliamentary elections, Jean-René Lecerf intends to challenge the government on this issue.---http://pamelageller.com/2017/07/muslim-migrant-the-problem-colossal.html/

Gruesome Albanian Mafia Replaces Italian Mafia — Thanks to Islam

Dateline New York, 1990-2017: Is your blood as good as the blood of a dog? Are we all just a cattle to the Muslims? Does the undeclared victory of the Albanian Mafia over the Italian Mafia stand related to the demise of Roman Catholicism in the face of Islam’s youthful aggression? 
After all, the decline of La Cosa Nostra, on display ever since the spectacular Gotti trials in New York and Judge Falcone’s mass mob trials in the bunker court in Sicily, was concomitant with the rise in Albanian Mafia activity in the 1990’s in Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, and Italy. 
The Italians of Crime Inc. even in their depraved state were still men with scruples while the Albanians suffered from no such restraints, certainly thanks to Islam in no small part. Of course, the Albanian tribal links have enforced a sense of loyalty, because betrayal is punished by a mutually agreed upon punishment of death. Just ask the FBI who investigated them. Thousands of Albanians and others who fled the Balkans for the United States in recent years have emerged as a serious organized crime problem, displacing La Cosa Nostra (LCN) families as kingpins of U.S. crime.
The Albanian criminal enterprises, operating largely in New York and other Eastern seaboard cities, represent a major challenge because of their propensity for violence and brutality. They are a hardened group, operating with reckless abandon just as they have done in the Balkans against the Serbs and their allies in Kosovo where they assisted a local Albanian terrorist organization known as “Kosovo Liberation Army” (KLA/UCK) in the 1990’s. Some of the Albanians even served as ruthless sociopathic enforcers for the established Italian Mafia families for several years. 
Certain crimes the La Cosa Nostra had the Albanians commit for them because these acts would be too gruesome and too dangerous for the Italians to do. In the Albanian tradition of table manners, it is normal to expect a knife pulled to settle disputes. They do mean business just like their ancient counterparts did, those religious killers from the infamous Arab Muslim sect of Hashishin (Assassins) in the Middle East who excelled in murdering eminent Christians and Muslims in the name of Allah (usually at high levels).
What makes Albanians so hard to track down is that unlike the traditional model of the criminal enterprise, here there is no single, ethnically homogeneous Albanian or Balkan “mafia” structured hierarchically in the manner of traditional Sicilian or Italian mafia. Contrary to common belief, no strict hierarchy exists within ethnic Albanian criminal groups, and there are no godfathers. And why? The answer: ISLAM. It is the horizontal nature of Islam’s worldview that colors the perception of the Albanian crime syndicates, even if their members are not particularly religious. In this, there is a clear structural dissimilarity with the Catholic Italian Mafia where hierarchy was honorable and instrumental to the functioning of the system. 
There is no such thing as a hierarchy in the flat world of opportunity for crimes under the auspices of the Islamic Mafia of the tribal Albanian terrorist entrepreneurs. Each family, each tribe, each helter-skelter band of Albanian toughs is liable to form its own criminal enterprise cell – just as had happened in the centuries past when Albanian brigands were dreaded even by the Turks who knew them as mountain bandits and tough skinned shepherds coming together for the opportune purpose of ambushing caravans, kidnapping travelers, slaughtering all defenders. The endemic Albanian stagecoach robbery operations inside the Balkan provinces of the old Turkish Empire were the bane of travel and the shame of the Sultans.
Fast forward to today, while these cells do admit non-Albanian associates – they do not allow them into the inner circle of decision-making where teams of experienced pimps and hardened killers run their respective cells like Muslim fathers run Muslim families – with the power of ‘honor killings’ at their fingertips. The Balkan region remains a safe haven for these profit-driven Albanian criminal terror groups, fighting not so much for Allah but for money and political influence for Allah’s family of worshipers on Earth. Intellectually speaking, the Albanian crime groups stand for a horizontal group of values in which peer-to-peer relationships in the service of an equal opportunity to pull a job on the order of trafficking in drugs, arms, humans, and human organs – is what constitutes its modus operandi (MO). 
They just gather for the job at hand. Then after it’s done, they disappear until another job prospect would unite them again, each time the cell would be staffed a little differently under the command of a senior man of experience for the job acting as the cell leader. All this wealth from crime has a political purpose too. The Albanian-American Mafia in New York was instrumental in helping elect Hillary Clinton to the Senate from a won seat in upstate New York. She received both money and votes from a 200,000-strong Albanian community in New York. It was certainly a kind of payback for her role in the great bombing of Serbia in 1999.
To illustrate the kinds of known criminal projects that the Albanian Mafia is famous for, let us recall that huge scandal involving illegal organ theft in the post-NATO-war-on-Serbia period when individual Serb civilians were being hunted down, made captive and cut open for kidneys, livers, and hearts that could be sold on the shadowy organ transplant black markets in Europe (just as it has been done during the war on kidnapped or captured Serb soldiers who were gutted across the border in a shack of horrors in Albania). 
Not too long ago, Council of Europe reporter Dick Marty alleged in a hard-hitting 2010 paper that senior KLA commanders – including the recent Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci – were involved in illegal organ trafficking. This is all connected to the Medicos affair, another case of organ trafficking at a hospital in Kosovo’s main city Pristina. Seven people, mostly doctors, were on trial and convicted before an EU-run court there on charges of illegally transplanting organs at the Medicus Clinic. 
The suspicions first appeared in the media in a book, “The Hunt: Me and the War Criminals”, written in 2008 by Carla Del Ponte, a reputable former chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). In her book, a credible Del Ponte states that Kosovo Albanians harvested organs of kidnapped ethnic Serbs after the armed conflict ended in 1999. Moreover, after the war in Kosovo, an American journalist, Michael Montgomery, obtained testimony from seven former KLA terrorists who said they had transported prisoners, dead and alive, from Kosovo to Albania for organ harvesting on live victims.
Just as the Qur’an instructed “the elevated Muslims”: treat the infidel like the cattle that they are.
Indeed, the worst of living animals in the sight of Allah are those who have disbelieved, and they will not [ever] believe.
[The Holy Qur’an, Chapter 8, verse 56, surat l-anfal (The Spoils of War)]
According to a hadith (sayings of the Prophet of Islam) recorded among other places in Sunan Ahmed (Hanbali jurisprudence) and Sunan al-Bayhaqi (Shafi’i jurisprudence), during the course of a discussion about non-Muslims, Caliph Omar al-Khattab — one of Sunni Islam’s “four righteous caliphs” — declared They are heathens, and the blood of one of them is [like] the blood of a dog.”


When the topic of discussion is organized crime, Albania seldom comes to mind. But that country’s mafia is notorious for its complexity and the diversity of its criminal enterprises. Its reach spreads far beyond the Albanian border, with branches highly active in the United States, Europe, the Middle East and South America. Activities include trafficking in drugs, arms, humans, and human organs. Interpol reports that the Kosovo chapter alone runs heroin markets in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Sweden and Norway. And Italian mobsters are said to hate dealing with the Albanians because they’re too violent and too unpredictable.
Albanians 01Like many organized crime groups we loosely refer to as “mafia”, this one grew out of the chaos following the breakdown of government. When communism failed, Albania collapsed into economic dysfunction and the criminal element stepped in to take advantage of the chaos. It wasn’t long before they gained a foothold in the hotbed of mafia activity in the United States.
As The New York Times reported in January of 2006, “Beginning in the 1990s, the Corporation, led by a man named Alex Rudaj, established ties with established organized crime figures including members of the Gambino crime family.”, but they wanted more. Soon, they were battling the Lucchese and Gambino families for territory in Queens, the Bronx and Westchester County
In 2001, seven Albanian mobsters stormed a Gambino hangout in Astoria, tearing the place apart, firing weapons and beating the manager bloody. Gambino leader Arnold Squitieri demanded a “sit down.” The two groups met at a gas station located in a rest area near the New Jersey turnpike. Rudaj found himself and his six crew members outnumbered by twenty armed Gambino mobsters. When Squitieri issued an ultimatum and tension was at its highest, crew members on both sides drew their guns, but the Albanians ended the discussion by threatening to blow up the station and everyone in it.
Albanians 02By 2006, all the main players involved in this “sit down” were in prison. In October of 2004, the FBI arrested 22 members of the Rudaj Organization in New York on indictments covering a wide range of racketeering and gambling charges. Rudaj and his main lieutenants were tried and found guilty.  Rudaj, by then 38 years old, was sentenced to 27 years in prison. Arnold Squitieri was convicted in an unrelated racketeering case and went to prison for seven years.
Fred Snelling, head of the FBI’s criminal division in New York, once described the Albanians as a sixth crime family, characterizing the Albanians as similar to the Italian mafia in its early days, before it became more business-like. The Gambino family even once hired Albanians to do their killing for them. When they first expanded into Italy, local justice officials were amazed that the fearsome Albanian criminals were prepared to take on the local mafia.
Many Albanians are Muslims, and some are thought to be Al Qaeda sympathizers and have links to that organization. Evidence exists that shows their support for terrorism, according to the FBI and other sources. The Kosovo Liberation Army has been targeted as a recruiting ground by Al Qaeda and more militant forms of Islam are moving into the country.
Currently, more than 15 mafia families operate in Albania alone, functioning as hybrid groups involved in both criminal enterprises and local political activities. Although it’s not on most people’s radar, the Albanian Mafia, in its entirety, ranks as one of the prolific groups in the world in terms of generating crime.
Albanian gangs sporting their goods in the streets.

Exercising Our Authority

Gary Wilkerson
July 31, 2017
While on their way to pray one day, Peter and John came upon a lame man lying at the gate of the temple asking for alms. Upon hearing his request, Peter told the man to look at them. 
The lame man expected to receive something from them but instead he heard Peter say, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” (Acts 3:6, ESV).
What an interesting phrase: “But what I do have.” Peter had inside of him the ability to proclaim, in the name of Jesus, “Rise up and walk!” Notice that Peter didn’t pray over the man before making this proclamation. Because he had the Holy Spirit within him, Peter knew what the Father was doing, so he could proclaim it a reality. 
In fact, he was so confident that he reached down, took the lame man by the right hand, and lifted him to his feet. Immediately strength entered the man’s feet and ankles and he began walking, leaping, and praising God.
There is a time to pray, “If it is Your will,” even when it comes to healing. There may be times when you are not convinced that the Lord is going to heal someone, but if you receive that sense of confidence in your spirit, don’t hold back! Begin to pray over people with faith, “You are healed in the name of Jesus!”
Extend this prayer to other situations:
“Your marriage is coming together in the name of Jesus!”
“You are set free in the name of Jesus!”
“My son/daughter is returning home in the name of Jesus!”
There is power in the name of Jesus! We need to exercise our authority to proclaim the Word of the Lord over people and circumstances because Jesus said, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18).

Pro-Life Alliance

Dear Tom,

As pro-lifers have long known, ultrasounds hold the power to change hearts and save lives.

In fact, researchers have found that 78% of abortion-minded women choose life after viewing an ultrasound of their unborn child.

What’s more, abortionists know it.

That’s why abortionists are doing everything they can to negate the power of ultrasounds.

In fact, even though abortionists regularly use ultrasound technology to aid their deadly vocation in practice, they turn the screen away and intentionally hide the baby’s picture from the mother.

After all, they know that one picture can radically change someone’s understanding of abortion and of human life.

And that’s exactly what happened to Brenda Pratt-Shafer.

Brenda worked as an abortion mill employee and remained staunchly on the side of ending unborn life ... until she witnessed a dismemberment abortion on an ultrasound machine.

Throughout the abortion, Brenda watched in horror as the baby fought for its life, struggling to get away as the abortionist attacked its body with his deadly instruments.

But despite its struggles, that baby ultimately lost its life at the hands of the abortionist.

Disgusted and appalled, Brenda Pratt-Shafer quit her job, became a pro-life activist, and even wrote a book detailing her grisly experience with the abortion industry -- all because of what she had seen on an ultrasound screen.

If an ultrasound had such a life-changing impact on an abortion mill employee, just imagine the effect ultrasounds could have on pregnant mothers!

That’s why in addition to fighting for the Ultrasound Informed Consent Act at the state level, your National Pro-Life Alliance is ramping up pressure for a nationwide bill.

A federal Ultrasound Informed Consent Act could save untold numbers of unborn babies from the horrors of abortion-on-demand by requiring abortionists to show mothers an ultrasound of their unborn baby prior to an abortion.

For Life,

Martin Fox, President

The Extraordinary Potential of Ordinary People

"The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him."

—2 Chronicles 16:9

Throughout the Scriptures and throughout the history of the Christian church, we find that God has done unexpected things with unexpected people. He has done extraordinary things through ordinary people. The Bible tells us, “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him" (2 Chronicles 16:9). This verse doesn’t say God is looking for strong men and women; it says God is looking for people whom He can be strong on behalf of. As I have often said, God is not looking for ability as much as He is looking for availability.

When God was looking for a man to lead the nation Israel, whom did He select? He chose a boy named David who was watching over a flock of sheep. When God wanted someone to lead an army to defeat the Midianites, the enemies of Israel, whom did God choose? He chose a cowardly man named Gideon who couldn’t even muster up the courage to show himself publicly.

It’s almost as though the Lord goes out of His way to choose someone and then raise up him or her. Then people will have to stand back and say, “This is the work of the Lord.”

One thing is clear in the Scriptures: The individuals God found to carry out His work didn’t necessarily look like they would amount to much. He chose people who, at first glance, didn’t even to appear to have what it took for the task at hand.

Would you be a person who would say, “Lord, I don’t have much to offer. I’m not a towering intellect. I’m not a great orator. I’m not very talented. But what I have, Lord, I offer to You”?  Then you watch what God will do.

God is not looking for ability; He is looking for availability.


Clarion Takes to Congress to Challenge Radical Islam

Raheel Raza
Raheel Raza
Challenging radical Islam in the United States was center stage when Clarion Project’s Raheel Raza testified before the House Subcommittee on National Security.
Raza made four key recommendations for consideration by lawmakers:
  1. Shift government focus and efforts to tackle the ideology that drives extremism. Not just Countering Violent Extremism, but also countering non-violent extremism. The ideology. More on this in a moment.
  2. Designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. They spread this extreme ideology.
  3. Take steps to prevent funding of US educational institutions and mosques by foreign extremists.
  4. Stop listening to extremists, start listening to moderates such as the Muslim Reform Movement.

“It’s not about political correctness.  There are people here in the West who are afraid to use the words ‘Islamist Ideology’ because they think that it is anti-Muslim.  It is actually very pro-Muslim, because it makes the ordinary masses of people understand the difference between the faith of Islam and an ideology which is political in nature – and which is evil.”
