Maryland Imam: Goal of Jihad Is to Implement Sharia

Maryland imam: ‘Goal of Jihad is Sharia…Sharia Spread by the Sword’ 

Sheikh Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa, head of the Islamic Jurisprudence Center in Clarksburg, Maryland, gave a lecture in Toronto, Canada in 2010, in which he said that Muslims could only live in the land of the infidels under certain circumstances, one of which was to do da’wa. “When the caliphate is established, you need to pack your bags and go home,” he said. In the lecture on the jurisprudence of interaction with non-Muslims, which was delivered at the Abu Huraira Center in Toronto and posted on YouTube in August 2010, Bengharsa stressed that historically, Islam had been spread by the sword and said that the purpose of Jihad is to establish the law of Allah and that while you can’t force a person to believe in Allah, “you can force him to live by the shari’a.”

500,000 people evacuated from Japan and China from Tropical Storm Talim

Hundreds of thousands were evacuated Sunday after Tropical Storm Talim made landfall in Japan, packing strong winds and heavy rainfall.
Nearly a foot of rain has already fallen in parts of eastern Kyushu, according to weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce.
The torrential downpours could result in flooding and landslides.
In Kagoshima Prefecture, 230,000 people were evacuated, EuroNews.com reports.
Nearly 60,000 were issued evacuation orders in parts of Oita and Miyazaki prefectures, the Japan Times reports.
"The mountains seem about to collapse," a resident of Asakura told EuroNews.
"I think it will be okay but I am still scared."
A 71-year-old man is reportedly missing in Oita prefecture, where more than 500 people have become stranded, Xinhuanet reports.
Operators of bullet trains reported stoppages due to power outages and the heavy rain, Bloomberg reports.
The storm caused flight cancellations Saturday after bringing high winds and significant rainfall to the country's southern islands.
China Airlines, Tigerair Taiwan and EVA Airways have all cancelled flights, Focus Taiwan reports. The storm will continue to affect Japan with heavy rain and gusty winds as it accelerates northeastward according to Dolce.
Before hitting mainland Japan, Talim caused more than 18,000 homes in the city of Miyako, located about 1,000 miles southwest of Tokyo and home to 54,000 people, to lose power.
The highest 24-hour rainfall total in more than 40 years was recorded there Wednesday.

Caribbean Islands devastated just last week by colossus category 5 Hurricane Irma are now bracing themselves for the second category 5 hurricane in a week and is heading for Puerto Rico.
Hurricane Maria smashed into Dominica causing widespread damage according to officials.
Hurricane Maria suddenly strengthened to a "potentially catastrophic" category five storm, before making landfall on the Caribbean island.
Maria is following the same track as Hurricane Irma which devasted the many Caribbean Islands earlier this month.
With sustained winds of 250km/h (155mph) Maria is a category 4 hurricane but it is expected to strengthen again as it head's for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, the warm waters of the Caribbean are considered jet fuel for hurricanes.

NASA and NOAA satellites have provided data on Maria as it strengthened into a major Hurricane headed toward the Leeward Islands.
NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at Maria that showed cooling cloud top temperatures and NOAA's GOES satellite provided an animation of imagery that showed the storm developing and strengthening.
The GPM satellite found "Hot" towering clouds that indicated strengthening was occurring before Maria became a major hurricane.

Rick Warren, Bishop Hail Unity as Model for Evangelicals and Catholics to Follow

Rick Warren, Calif. Bishop Hail Unity as Model for Evangelicals and Catholics to Follow

Megachurch pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church and California Roman Catholic Bishop Kevin Vann recently opened up about their years-long friendship and cooperation as a model for evangelicals and Catholics around the world to follow.
Crux Now shared an interview on Thursday, which was conducted by Pia de Solenni, a lay Catholic theologian and chancellor of the Orange County diocese, where Vann explained that his friendship with Warren began five years ago when they met at his installation.
"In the months and years that followed, I discovered the blessing of sharing the concerns of ministry with Rick, talking about our homilies and what we were both studying, and praying together. Our relationship has also been blessed to include Kay, his wife," Vann explained.
"Also, Rick's staff at Saddleback and our staff at the Diocese began to get to know each other through various meetings, sharing not only our common love for the Lord, but also our love for the Church, fellowship, and praying together."



The Dragon, The King and The Beast Rising

Watchman Bible Study

Daniel’s Dream: The Four Kingdoms [Daniel 7]

Also related to this same examination of nations through history is a dream Daniel experienced that gives another perspective of the subject of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and also relates it to a future vision that will be experienced by John and written in the Book of Revelation. To see more how history lines up with the following, go here.
Daniel 7:1-8
1-3: In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters. Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
4: The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. [See Daniel 4:30-37]
5: And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
6: After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
[Rome/Revived Roman Empire]
7,8: After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron [Daniel 2:40-45] teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns[Revelation 13:1-10] I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn[The beast or antichrist] before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
17: These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. [Big picture]

As we saw in Daniel 2 the last kingdom is that made of iron just as the iron teeth from the fourth kingdom, but a distinction is made of a section of this iron part of the statue that is mixed with clay, the feet and toes. Just as the animals in Daniel 7 show a progression through time, so does the statue show a progression from the head to the feet through history, the feet being the last kingdom before Christ returns to rule the Earth.

The 10 toes are then comparable to the 10 horns and 10 kings from which a little horn, the man of sin, arises. This is because what all of these have in common is their placement in history just before Christ returns and takes the kingdoms beginning the millennial reign of Christ. The connection of the animals becomes significant when reading what John wrote in Revelation where those same animals are used to describe a beast coming from the sea.
Revelation 13:1-5
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authorityAnd I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies;

and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.Like a leopard (Historical: Daniel 7:6 - Greece)Feet as a bear (Historical: Daniel 7:5 - Persia)Mouth as a lion (Historical: Daniel 7:4 - Babylon)What’s interesting is that they are in reverse order from Daniel 7 above. This seems appropriate from John’s perspective looking back through history from the end, not into the future from the beginning as Daniel did. These animals mixed into one beast shows us the overview of the worldly Gentile governments represented in one beast being related to the end times period leading to Christ’s return. These four animals represent only four kingdoms while there are seven heads on this beast made up of these four animals.

UN International Day of Peace - Together for Peace and Safety

1 Thessalonians 5 English Standard Version (ESV)

5 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 2 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. 5 For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. 6 So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Revelation 12:13

13 And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14 But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time. 15 The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with a flood. 16 But the earth came to the help of the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured from his mouth. 17 Then the dragon became furious with the woman and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. And he stood[c] on the sand of the sea.

Sept 21-22, 2017 - YOM TERUAH The Shofar Shouts Alarm and Repentence

The Watchman

"...Yom Teruah is the only festival which has an uncertain beginning, since the first day of the month, Rosh Chodesh, depends on sighting the new moon by two witnesses. For this reason, even in Israel this festival is celebrated for two days.

Yom Teruah: Which means a day of blowing (the shofar) or breathing. This name is found in:

Bamidbar (Numbers) 29:1 "'On the first day of the seventh month hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. It is a day for you to sound the shofarot.

Vayikra (Leviticus) 23:24 "Say to the Israelites: 'On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with shofar blasts.

Teruah in Hebrew means not only a certain unique sound. It also connotes "to break", as the prophet says:

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 24:19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

After the earth quaked, something broke to pieces. Teruah is associated with breakage and damage, for example we find the people of Sodom threatened to do damage to Lot for not turning over his guests to them.

Yom Ha-Zekaron: Which means a day of memorial or remembrance. This is derived from the verse:

Vayikra (Leviticus) 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbatha memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

Rosh HaShanah: This is the common name used by most Jews.

North Korea launches ballistic missile over Japan

North Korea launches ballistic missile over Japan

South Korea’s military says intermediate-range ballistic missile was fired east from the North’s capital, Pyongyang.

Shinzo Abe: 'There will be no bright future'

Here is the Japanese prime minister’s full response to the North Korea missile launch:

The UN resolution showed the international community’s unified strong will for a peaceful solution. But despite that, North Korea has again carried out this outrageous conduct.

It is absolutely unacceptable.

We request an emergency meeting of the United Nations security council. Global peace is threatened by North Korea’s dangerous provocations.

The international community should unite against such conduct to send a clear message … The recent sanctions and resolutions must be fully complied with and implemented. That is now ever more clear.

If North Korea continues to walk this road, there will be no bright future. We need to get North Korea to understand that.

This time, the Japanese government once again, since immediately after the missile launch … had completely assessed the movements of the missile and we have taken all full necessary measures.

And under the firm Japan-US alliance, we will step up our level of alert to ensure the security and the sense of security of the Japanese people.

James Mattis, the US defense secretary, has accused North Korea of “a reckless act”.

Mattis said the missile “was fired over Japan and put millions of Japanese in duck and cover”.

But when questioned on how the US would respond, Mattis said:

I don’t want to talk on that yet.

US president Donald Trump has been briefed on the missile launch, he confirmed.

Hurricanes, Earthquake Disasters Unprecedented

Hurricane's Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia and the biggest Mexican quake in 100 years promise to bring an unprecedented two weeks of disaster to the Gulf

Click image to enlarge

It has been an unprecedented week of destruction for a tiny part of our planet, Mexico, The Gulf Of Mexico and the Carribean.
Records have tumbled along with total destruction for some islands in an area known as paradise.
And it's not finished by a long way, Hurricane Irma will be 'devastating' to the US - A Fema head has declared today.
 Brock Long said parts of Florida would be without power for days. Half a million people in the state have been ordered to leave their homes.

Photo Severe Weather Europe
Hurricane Irma has left a trail of destruction in the Caribbean, affecting an estimated 1.2m people.
At least 20 people are known to have died so far.
The storm, which most recently lashed the Turks and Caicos islands and brought torrential rain to the Dominican Republic and Haiti, was headed towards Cuba and the Bahamas.
Just last week Hurricane Harvey was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, ending a record 12-year drought in which no hurricanes of Category 3 intensity or higher made landfall in the country.
In a four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches (1,000 mm) of rain as the system meandered over eastern Texas and adjacent waters, causing catastrophic flooding.
With peak accumulations of 51.88 in (1,318 mm), Harvey is the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the contiguous United States. The resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and prompted more than 17,000 rescues.
Then came Irma and then Jose and then Katia, the first time three active hurricanes have formed at the same time in the Atlantic region since 2010.
Irma was the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic
and has virtually destroyed several small tourist islands in its path.
Add to that a mag 8.2 the biggest quake in Mexico's last 100 years and if confirmed the biggest quake ever in history.
And whatever happens, the next 48 hours will be critical for Cuba, Miami and the rest of Florida as Irma, followed by Jose shall hit very very hard!
