"Former Hamas Terrorist Gives Shocking Inside Scoop"

"Hamas is not seeking coexistence and compromise. Hamas is seeking conquest and taking over," explains Mosab Hassan Yousef, a Hamas-raised Christian convert.

"And by the way, the destruction of the State of Israel is not Hamas' final destination. Hamas' final destination is building the Islamic caliphate, which means an Islamic state under (sic) the rubble of every other civilization." He also said it doesn't matter how many Palestinians die to accomplish that goal.

Yousef is the son of a Hamas founding member who was raised in the organization but after reading the Bible rejects everything Hamas stands for.

Groomed for Hamas leadership, he authored the book, Son of Hamas that is dedicated to revealing the truth behind Hamas:

  • how Hamas indoctrinates the Palestinian people
  • why there can never be peace between Israel and Hamas
  • how Hamas tortures its own people
  • why there have been so many Palestinian casualties in the current conflict with Israel.
"Hamas," he says, "doesn't care about the lives of Palestinians; does not care about the lives of Israelis or Americans. They don't care about their own lives. They consider dying for the sake of their ideology a way of worship." CNN: Son of Hamas interview

Meanwhile, anti-Semitic attacks are skyrocketing amid the growing outrage of the international community over what some see as the indiscriminate bombing of Palestinian civilians.

Anti-Israel protest are springing up all over the world, despite the fact that Israel takes great pains to avoid civilian casualties:
  • raining down leaflets from airplanes over Gaza warning people to evacuate the areas to be bombed
  • calling ahead on telephones for the same purpose
  • dropping unloaded missiles as a warning to clear the area ahead of a 'real' bombing See Israel's 'Knock on Roof' strategy
Israel has done everything possible to avoid civilian deaths, but the world doesn't seem to notice. Hamas hides its missiles among its population and encourages them to stay put and become martyrs. Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu says it best:
"Here's the difference between us. We're using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they're using their civilians to protect their missiles.

Israel can't win. Even if they achieve their objective: to destroy terror tunnels under Israel, they will never win in the court of public opinion. The Bible clearly predicts that the nations of the world will turn against Israel in the last days, just as they turn against God.

Christian, stand with Israel, pray for the Palestinians and understand the times we are living in.

"I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah...And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it..." Zachariah 12: 2,3

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you prosper." Psalm 122:6

"For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side."  Luke 19:43

"Crippling Drought=God's Judgment?"

The latest news regarding the deepening drought situation is anything but good.

The western United States is experiencing what meteorologists are calling "the worst drought in recorded history."

"In fact, four of the driest rainy seasons have occurred in the last seven years," said climatologist Bill Patzert. "The drought started in 1999 and worsened over time. The last three years, however, have been the worst."

For instance, "extreme" and "exceptional" drought conditions now describe 80% of California.

And remember the El Nino everybody was hoping would bring relief? Patzert says, "El Nino is wimping out. And any hopes for an El Nino weather pattern this rainy season are quickly fading."

According to Water Resource Chair, Felicia Marcus, "Not everybody understands how bad this drought is...and how bad it could be. There are communities in danger of running out of water all over the state. This is the most serious drought we've faced in modern times."

For California this means, statewide mandatory water restrictions for the first time ever including:
  • $500 fines per day for water hogs
  • zero water allocation for Central Valley farmers
  • major losses for cattle ranchers
But misery loves company and the US is not alone...
  • Australia
  • Africa
  • South America
  • India 
  • Russia
  • Japan 
  • the Middle East
  • and parts of Europe
...are all experiencing severe drought conditions that threaten to cause food shortages in some of the poorest nations on earth and soaring food prices across the developed world. And, as always, the trifecta of heat, wind, and drought = wild fires.

Climatologists call drought a "creeping disaster" because its effects slowly creep up on us. Environmentalists call it global warming.

What does our government's legal code call it?

An "Act of God".

This legal term is on the books because past generations understood that God is in control of nature--including droughts. Don't believe it? Check out Amos 4:7-8:
"I have withheld rain from you...I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city...Yet you have not returned to me, says the LORD."

"Tipping Point: World in Crisis"

The world situation has been slowly deteriorationg for some time now, but today it exploded. Literally.

First, a commercial Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was shot from the sky by a Soviet-era SA-11 ground-to-air missile over Ukraine. All 295 on board perished, including possibly 23 Americans.

This is the third downed plane in that region in the last four days.

The Big Question? Who's responsible? Both sides blame the other.

Ukraine accused militant rebels fighting to unite eastern Ukraine with Russia. Russia flatly denies any involvement, despite recent threats from Russian President Vladimir Putin that any attempt to impose sanctions on Russia would "boomerang and cause very serious damage."

Russian rebels point the finger of blame at Ukraine forces, claiming the Ukraine military is responsible. Ukraine officials cry untrue, and so far it looks like they can be ruled out.

Though it's too early to know for sure, all of the evidence seems to zero in on Russia. If so, get ready for real trouble.

Meanwhile, Israel finally launched a ground invasion into Gaza after days of trying to avert one. The invasion comes hours after a Hamas assault squad of heavily-armed terrorists attempted to carry out a massacre of civilians inside the Israeli border.

Apparently fed up with showing restraint, Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu ordered the ground offensive. The stated goal? Eradicate infiltration tunnels Hamas was planning to use to sneak into Israel and cause havoc; and if they can seriously harm the infrastructure of Hamas and other terrorist organizations and stop the constant barrage of missiles aimed at Israeli civilians--all the better.

But that ain't all folks. The world has never before in history had so many crises brewing at once:

  • Iraq is unraveling as terror group ISIS conquers one city after another.
  • Iran's Supreme Leader has called for more enrichment capacity despite a July 20th deadline to cut a deal with world powers to prevent it from being able to produce a nuclear bomb.
  • The Syrian civil war is still raging out of control with an estimated 170,000 dead and counting.
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) is warning "the worst-ever outbreak of Ebola has expanded beyond Africa." With 600 dead and hundreds more infected, health ministers from 11 countries plan to gather for an emergency meeting.
And to top it off? The sun is acting weird. But that's another blog...

"GMO Crops (or Frankenfoods): Something to Fear?"

There's a food fight going on regarding the pros and cons of eating GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

What's that, you ask?

Scientists add genes to corn, soy beans and other crops to protect the plant from insects (among other things) and claim the practice is perfectly safe.

In fact, without it, our food supply would be unstable and much more expensive, say the proponents.

But the contrarians are worried sick that GMOs pose a threat to our health, and claim a link to depression, allergies, infertility, and even the big C--cancer

No way, say the pros. GMOs have been in our food supply for 20 years now and no such link exists. And besides, farmers have been altering crops for centuries.

So, who's right? With 75% of consumers concerned about the safety of GMOs, and 91% preferring to avoid GMOs if given the choice (according to Dr. Oz), let's see if we can boil down the facts.

Food for thought:

  • The cons cite a report that appeared last year in Food and Chemical Toxicology that rats developed tumors after eating GMOs for 2 years
  • The pros immediately jumped on the study as 'slanted' and scientists agreed. The report was later retracted as untrue by the journal.
  • Food science professor, Ruth MacDonald cites hundred of other studies that have found GMOs as safe as non-GMOs.
  • State Senator David Zuckeman of Vermont claims, "As consumers, we are guinea pigs, because we really don't understand the ramifications.
  • Not true say biologists. GMOs have been studied intensively and found benign.
  • The cons say GMOs are too new for us to know if they are dangerous.
  • Popular Science tells us genetically-engineered plants first appeared in labs about 30 years ago and became a commercial product in 1994. Since then, over 1,700 peer-reviewed studies vouch for their safety.
  • Contrarians claims farmers can't re-plant GMO seeds.
  • The facts? Farmers do sign agreements that prohibit re-planting in order to ensure annual sales, but large-scale commercial growers typically don't bother to save seeds anyway. "The quality deteriorates," says plant scientist Kent Bradford. "They get weeds and so on--and it's not a profitable practice."
  • All research on GMOs has been funded by big-Ag, claim the cons.
  • "Simply not true," says Popular Science. "Hundreds of independent researchers have published peer-reviewed safety studies. At least a dozen medical and scientific groups worldwide, including the World Health Organization and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, have stated that GMOs currently approved for market are safe."
The scientific consensus? GMOs are no more or no less risky that conventional crops.

Chew on that for a minute and then consider a compromise: labelling. Although that opens another whole can of worms and promises to bite us in the wallet, maybe it'll finally put an end to the food fight...but don't hold your breath. Something tells us that labelling won't cut the mustard either.

A wise man once said: "Facts are God's arguments; we should be careful never to misunderstand or pervert them." --Tryon Edwards, American theologian

"...the bread from heaven gives eternal life to everyone who eats it. I am the living bread that came down out of heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will lives forever..." (John 6:50-51).

"Chemtrails: Are They Real?"

Chemtrails (not to be confused with contrails) are lighting up the internet with conspiracy theories.

Have you noticed those strange, long thin clouds crisscrossing the sky? Theories range from:

  • a sinister experiment meant to de-populate the earth
  • a normal product of jet planes known as contrails
  • or an attempt by governments from around the world to slow global warming
If you chose Door #3, you get the cigar, at least according to Geo Engineering, a website dedicated to educating us on the subject. Their definition?
"Chemtrailing is the public's term for the classified ongoing artificial modification of Earth's climate systems using reflective nano-materials (aerosols) to reflect sunlight. The aerosols are dispersed via jet aircraft trails that expand into reflective artificial clouds."
The stated goal? To block the sun.

Sounds fine and dandy until you get a load of the unintended consequences:

  • historic droughts/snowstorms
  • destruction of the ozone layer
  • mass animal die-offs (honeybees, fish, birds, etc.)
  • astronomical increases in autism and Alzheimer's disease
The Big Question? What, if anything, is going on in our skies?

Clearly, there is a plethora of information in regards to chemtrails on the internet. Page after (endless?) page, some more believable than others. Some so ridiculous the temptation is to chalk it all up to the lunatic fringe.
(For instance, one shared other revelations such as Arnold Schwarzenegger had been killed in an accident and cloned. The clone's growth had been scientifically accelerated to make him the same age as the original Arnold. Oh, and the destiny of this clone? You guessed it--the Antichrist).

But let's not be hasty to simply laugh it all off.

A published UK government report from a few years back suggests appointing a global body, such as the UN, to regulate geoengineering. The House of Commons report, entitled "The Regulation of Geoengineering, was compiled in collaboration with the US House of Representatives.

This, in our opinion, lends creditability and demonstrates that something is going on (like maybe those governments are busy playing God again.
"If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among the people, and if My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:13-14).
