Israel called ‘a threat to world peace’

Chilean presidential candidate calls Israel ‘a threat to world peace’

RIO DE JANEIRO (JTA) — A candidate in Chile’s upcoming presidential election declared Israel “a threat to world peace.”
Eduardo Artes, leader of the leftist Patriotic Union party, made the comment in an interview broadcast Friday with Chile’s HispanTV. He also pledged that as president he would conduct a comprehensive review of his country’s relations with the Jewish state.
“The treaties that Chile currently maintains with the Israeli Zionist entity in military, police, economic and cultural terms must all be reviewed in a patriotic and popular government, since they clearly damage our independence,” Artes said.

The World Hates Them

I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.[a] 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them[b] in the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sake I consecrate myself,[c] that they also may be sanctified[d] in truth...

24 Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. 26 I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

Psalm 91English Standard Version (ESV)

My Refuge and My Fortress

   91 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say[a] to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his pinions,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
You will not fear the terror of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
    nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes
    and see the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
    the Most High, who is my refuge[b]
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
    no plague come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
    lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;
    the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
    I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble;
    I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

Egypt court upholds death sentence on eight Muslim Brotherhood members

Egypt court upholds death sentence on eight Muslim Brotherhood members

An Egyptian court on Tuesday upheld the death sentences passed on eight members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood convicted of assaulting a police station in 2013, official MENA news agency reported.
The Cairo Criminal Court made the decision after receiving the approval of the Grand Mufti, the highest religious authority in Egypt.
The case dates back to August 2013 during a security crackdown on supporters of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi after his ouster in September.
The eight brotherhood members broke into Helwan Police Station, killing six people, including three policemen, and wounding 19 others, authorities said.
They also set the police station and security vehicles ablaze.
A total of 50 others were sentenced to life imprisonment, which is equal to 25 years in jail in Egypt.
Egypt has been battling waves of anti-security activities, mostly centred in North Sinai, since the army-led ouster of Morsi in 2013.
Islamists said the attacks targeting security personnel and the Copts were in retaliation for the crackdown against Morsi’s supporters and the Christians loyalty to the army.
Mr. Morsi, along with prominent figures of his brotherhood group, was sentenced to death over killing protesters, spying for foreign countries and other charges, but most of the charges are still appealable.

Fatima - Miracle of the Sunor a Harbinger

Fatima - Miracle of the Sun or a Harbinger of Deception?

 About Fatima
100 years ago an event happened that changed the world. Upwards of 70,000 were gathered in the little village of Fatima, Portugal. They were told, by an apparition that had appeared to three children—what many believed to be Mary of the Bible—that a miracle would occur. Something happened on October 13, 1917 and thousands of people witnessed it... It was called, The Miracle of the Sun.
The Watchman Chronicles presents FATIMA - Miracle of the Sun or a Harbinger of Deception?
What did the witnesses in 1917 really see?
Did Psychics predict the events of Fatima? Why did the apparition only speak telepathically with the children?What happened to the original testimonies of the witnesses taken 1917?Why was the main seer Lucia cloistered with a vow of silence for almost 2 decades? What actually appeared in the sky in 1917? Many witnesses described seeing a dull, silver disc...Were there other phenomena seen that day, such as "flying hats?"
The Watchman Chronicles with host L. A. Marzulli travelled to Fatima, Portugal to get the answers. You'll be astounded when you hear what amounts to a completely different version of the events than we have been led to believe.Coming this September...

My Help Comes From The Lord

           Psalm 31English Standard Version (ESV)

21 Blessed be the Lord,
    for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me
    when I was in a besieged city.
22 I had said in my alarm,[b]
    “I am cut off from your sight.”
But you heard the voice of my pleas for mercy
    when I cried to you for help.
23 Love the Lord, all you his saints!
    The Lord preserves the faithful
    but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride.
24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage,
    all you who wait for the Lord!

Psalm 41English Standard Version (ESV)

11 By this I know that you delight in me:
    my enemy will not shout in triumph over me.
12 But you have upheld me because of my integrity,
    and set me in your presence forever.
13 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
    from everlasting to everlasting!
Amen and Amen.

Psalm 51English Standard Version (ESV)

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
    wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and gladness;
    let the bones that you have broken rejoice.
Hide your face from my sins,
    and blot out all my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
    and renew a right[b] spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from your presence,
    and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
    and uphold me with a willing spirit.

Psalm 61English Standard Version (ESV)

Hear my cry, O God,
    listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to you
    when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
    that is higher than I,
for you have been my refuge,
    a strong tower against the enemy.
