Men's hearts failing them for fear, & for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 21:26
Christians in Iran face imprisonment, beatings, and even death. But the Church continues to grow at a rapid rate. In 1979, when the Islamic revolution
swept to power there were only about 500 Muslim Background Believers, according to the reference book Operation World ...
The first cellular phone was invented in 1973, and it changed society irrevocably. People no longer needed to memorize phone numbers,
and they could speak to people anywhere - cellphones made people, well, mobile. After a few decades, what started off as a basic phone -
which was only used to make calls - turned into a smartphone with many of the functions of a computer. It is like having your own personal
assistant, but digital. Knowing this, and how vital cellphones are to modern day society, Epoch Times asked New Yorkers if they think they
can survive without their cellphones for 24 hours ...
Economists warn that the country's economy is the worst in 25 years. According to cooked up government numbers, the unemployment rate in
Brazil has now reached 10%. In reality, judging by what I see on the street and when visiting businesses, that number is more like 20-25%. In addition
to high unemployment, Brazilians also have to deal with the steady increase in prices ...
I have made this comment many times in the past, but I think it needs to be stated again here: If you think the Federal Reserve's goal
is to maintain or repair the U.S. economy, then you will never understand why they do the things they do or why the economy evolves the way
that it does. The Fed's job is not to protect the U.S. economy ...
BERLIN // Under a grey sky and covered in snow, this barren plot of land in the heart of the city looks even more unassuming than usual.
Only a few people know that here, on a sliver of land made into an island by the flow of the river Spree, is where Berlin got its start. And even
fewer know that the site has been earmarked for a groundbreaking project: a place where Jews, Christians and Muslims all worship under one roof ....
All of us should be outraged by the United Nations summit in Korea this week that adopted a global "action plan" demanding a planetary
education regime that will brainwash our children into social-justice warriors and sustainability-minded world citizens ...
A craft beer company and an ad agency brewed up a brilliant idea to save marine life if six-pack rings end up in the ocean. Are you aware that 80%
of the plastic humans throw away ends up in the oceans? The sad reality is made worse when one learns that, as a result, billions of pounds of plastic are
now swirling in convergences in the seas. In fact, 40% of earth's total ocean mass is now covered by plastic ...
“Laurel Canyon Conspiracy Exposed”
1. How the EU began ... The European Union grew out of a desire for peace in a war-torn and divided continent. Five years after World War II
ended, France and Germany came up with a plan to ensure their two countries would never go to war against each other again. The result was a deal
signed by six nations to pool their coal and steel resources in 1950. Seven years later a treaty signed in Rome created the European Economic Community (EEC) ...
“Playing for Change - What's Up ”
What ultimately drives consumer confidence, the stock market and the growth of the economy? Better middle class jobs, disposable income
and a general sense of happiness, or something close to that, no? Think again. This poignant video explains the real factors behind economic bliss
- and why happiness in the system is diametrically opposed to your happiness ...
This is exactly what we have been expecting to happen. On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the U.S. economy only added
38,000 jobs in May. This was way below the 158,000 jobs that analysts were projecting, and it is also way below what is needed just to keep up with
population growth. In addition, the number of jobs created in April was revised down by 37,000 and the number of jobs created in March was revised
down by 22,000. This was the worst jobs report in almost six years, and the consensus on Wall Street is that it was an unmitigated disaster ...
If you allow someone to pump hours of "programming" into your mind every single day, it is inevitable that it is eventually going to
have a major impact on how you view the world. In America today, the average person consumes approximately 10 hours of information,
news and entertainment a day, and there are 6 giant media corporations that overwhelmingly dominate that market. In fact, it has been
estimated that somewhere around 90 percent of the "programming" that we constantly feed our minds comes from them ...
“Luke Skywalker's Prosthetic Arm From Star Wars Is Changing The Lives Of Amputees”
One of my spiritual mentors when I was in my 20s was a great man of God named Carl Ketcherside (1908-1989). I heard him in a question
and answer session one time when he was asked, "What do you think is the greatest evidence that the Bible came from God?" His answer: "The
Yellow Pages of the phone book." Needless to say, we were all stunned by this response ...
Ever wanted to be a superhero? Now you can be ... or at least, you can have your own action figure (which is the next best thing, really). It all
goes back to a company known as doob. doob allows you to get a 3D printed, nearly identical replica of yourself with something they call the "dooblicrtor."
Recently, I met with Michael Anderson, the CEO for the USA branch of doom, to learn how the process works and, of course, to get my own mini-me ...
When Paul Avila was a little boy, he often went with his mother to Skid Row to bring his homeless uncle food and clothes. Sometimes it was
scary for him, but it built a foundation of compassion he would later use to shelter many homeless from despair. Skid Row is a 54-block area of
downtown Los Angeles containing America's highest concentration of homeless people. It was a landing pad for Avila's uncle between prison stints.
This uncle had turned to gangs in his youth for a sense of belonging after his mother died. Drugs and alcohol took over, and he was just lucky he
had a sister who cared enough to keep him clothed and fed ...
“Playing For Change - A Change Is Gonna Come”
In the first few years following the victory of the Islamic revolution in Iran (1979), the introduction of hijab as an obligatory dress code was not mandatory. An Iranian nurse talked to Sputnik in an interview and shared her experience of living from behind the hijab veil. The goal of the revolution was much higher and far reaching than to oblige women to wear a hijab. Later, in the 1990s, the hijab became a symbol of political opposition to the main political forces in the country - the reformers and conservatives regarded the hijab as a means to improve public safety ...
It will turn a third of Shenzhen's trash into energy every single day. The Chinese city of Shenzhen plans to tackle its serious waste problem by
burning 5,000 tonnes of it a day in what will become the largest waste-to-energy plant in the world ...
As a world, are we thriving at our best? The question may seem comical. Of course it depends how you look at it. There is our day-to-day happiness, living in the moment, and feeling fulfilled by our home, our job, our loved ones, our environment. Then there is the deep-rooted issue of feeling like we are not thriving as a world ...
Billionaire Tesla head Elon Musk recently told a tech conference in California that the chance is "one in billions" that we are not living in a simulated world. In other words, it's almost a certainty that we're all walking around in something akin to The Matrix - a computer-generated reality run but artificial intelligence - right this minute and the majority of us don't even realize it. He also said we should actually hope it is true because if it isn', it means we're doomed to destruction by some other calamitous event ...
The Polish news channel TVP Info reports French and German foreign ministers are ready to reveal a super state "ultimatum" to EU countries in response to Brexit. The totalitarian proposals will strip the sovereignty of member states and the ability to have an army. The criminal law system and central bank will also be removed and run by bureaucrats in Brussels. Additionally, member states will lose control of their borders and procedures on admitting and settling migrants ...
“22 Year Old Muslim Migrants in Canadian School - Hitting on 14-15 Year Old Girls”
Almost two-thirds of all slaves are subjected to forced labor in Asia. The number of people in conditions of modern slavery, that is,
any activity of where one person forces a will over another is alarming. Almost 46 million people, 45.8 to be exact, worldwide suffer an
absolute deprivation of freedom to decide their own future, over ten million more than in 2014 ...
This test will ascertain if you're one of the many people who are perfectly designed robots of the system. Unfortunately, most individuals have no
clue about how reality works and are instead engaged in fruitless fighting against each other. How are we meant to wake these people up to the actual
reality they live in before we sink into complete totalitarianism? ...
For all intents and purposes, bugging out represents a last ditch effort to get to safety. Real life examples of events requiring you to flee
the comfort of your home are few and far between but they do exist. A devastating storm, earthquake, hurricane, chemical spill or even localized
civil unrest may be reason enough to require you to grab your bug out bag and flee ...
“Device Turns Any Surface Into An Inter-Active Touch Screen”
Imagine you're part of a NASA team preparing for a five-year mission to Mars. After a period of extensive training, the launch date finally arrives.
As the rocket lifts off, one of your fellow astronauts asks, "What do you know about Mars?" Envision shrugging your shoulders and saying, "Nothing. We
never talked about it. I guess we'll find out when we get there." It's unthinkable, isn't it? It's inconceivable that your training wouldn't have included
extensive study of and preparation for your ultimate destination. Yet in seminaries, Bible schools, and churches around the world, there's very little teaching
about our ultimate destination: the New Heavens and New Earth. We're told how to get to Heaven, and that it's a better destination than Hell, but ...
Archaeologists in Cambodia have found medieval cities between 900 and 1,400 years old buried beneath Cambodia's jungle floor.
The cities are considered a groundbreaking discovery that will change previously-held beliefs on Southeast Asia's history ...
Jake Austin has been volunteering with the homeless in St. Louis, Missouri, for years. But he just recently had a huge epiphany. "Most of my life I've
been volunteering in different capacities," he said. "One group was doing food and clothes, and I went down there to help out. They had a hygiene table
that was in disarray. So I asked if I could take it over" ...
“Prophecy Update In Review”
The opening ceremony of the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland featured a "goat-man" that dies, is resurrected, is worshipped and is crowned as
"the king of the world". The "goat-man" that played such a key role in this performance bore a striking resemblance to Baphomet, which in recent decades
has become one of the key symbols used to represent Satan in the occult community. So could it be possible that this entire ceremony was actually an Illuminati ritual that was intended to honor Satan? ...
When less stuff is being bought, sold and shipped around the country with each passing month, how in the world can
the U.S. economy be in "good shape"? Unlike official government statistics which are often based largely on projections, assumptions
and numbers seemingly made up out of thin air, the Cass Freight index is based on real transactions conducted by real shipping
companies. And what the Cass Freight Index is telling us about the state of the U.S. economy in 2016 lines up perfectly with all of
the other statistics that are clearly indicating that we have now shifted into recession mode ...
Nicotinamide mono nucleotide, which has been proven to reverse signs of aging in mice, including decline in eyesight, metabolism, and glucose intolerance,
is set to be tested in ten human volunteers in Japan next month. In 2013, researchers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) claimed to have formulated
a drug that could help slow down the aging process using a compound called nicotinamide mono nucleotide (NMN). And indeed, the compound has been found to
reverse signs of aging and extend the life expectancy ... of mice ...
