Muslim Brotherhood Wiping Out Egyptian Christians

Coptic Christians Reach Out to Hillary Clinton - American Thinker

Coptic Christians living in the United States have sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pleading for her to take more action to save their brethren in Egypt, as Egyptian Coptic Christians face increasing persecution and annihilation by the Egyptian army under the aegis of the Muslim Brotherhood.


Termed "a crime against humanity" the ongoing killings and arrests by the Egyptian Military Counsel are highlighted in a letter written by Monir A. Dawoud, President of the American Coptic Association. He reflects that on October 9, 2011, right after Clinton "expressed satisfaction with the performance of the Egyptian Military counsel, live ammunition was fired upon unarmed demonstrating Christians. More than 40 Christians were killed and more than 350 were seriously injured.


Dawoud expresses dismay with the American "official state declaration welcoming radicals" such as the Muslim Brotherhood. Dawoud writes that "[a]llowing [the] Muslim Brotherhood Group to control Egypt will definitely lead to the ultimate destruction of freedom and democracy not only in Egypt but all over the Arab countries and will spread to the rest of the world!"

Vatican-Owned German Publisher Sells Porn Titles

Revealed: publisher owned by the Catholic Church sells pornography
-The UK Independent

Germany's bishops promise to stop the company's distribution of erotic novels

Germany's biggest Catholic-owned publishing house has been rocked by disclosures that it has been selling thousands of pornographic novels...

The revelations made in the publishing-industry newsletter Buchreport concern Weltbild, a company with an annual €1.7bn (£1.5bn) turnover and 6,400 employees. It is Germany's largest bookseller after Amazon and wholly owned by the Catholic Church.



...Buchreport revealed that Weltbild's massive assortment of titles available to customers online includes some 2,500 "erotic" books...The publisher's website also pictures the titles' lascivious dust jackets that feature colour photographs of scantily clad women in high heels and erotic underwear.


But Bernhard Müller, editor of the Catholic magazine PUR, dismissed the clerics' reaction as grossly hypocritical. He alleged that the pornography scandal at Weltbild had been going on for at least a decade with the Church's full knowledge. Mr Müller said that in 2008, a group of concerned Catholics had sent bishops a 70-page document containing irrefutable evidence that Weltbild published books that promoted pornography, Satanism and magic. They demanded that the publisher withdraw the titles.


But their protests appear to have been completely ignored.

Sacred Fire, Smoke & Drums Mark The World Day of Prayer for Peace




The Wall Street Journal:

In this Umbrian hilltop city 25 years ago, Buddhists chanted to the accompaniment of gongs and drums, Zoroastrians tended a sacred fire, and an American Indian medicine man in traditional headdress smoked a peace pipe and called down the blessings of the "Great Spirit." In a moment that produced the day's most famous image, robed leaders of the world's major religions sat side by side under a sign bearing various translations of the word "peace."

The World Day of Prayer for Peace on Oct. 27, 1986, was of one of the most remarkable events in the spectacle-filled reign of Pope John Paul II. It epitomized that pontiff's historic opening to other faiths, the legacy of which is now known as the "Spirit of Assisi."

On Thursday, some 300 religious leaders returned to the city of St. Francis to join Pope Benedict XVI in commemorating his predecessor's gesture and renewing their commitment to the cause of peace. Yet this year's event differed in several ways that reflected the current pope's distinctive approach to interreligious dialogue.

Vatican Calls For Global Financial System & Government

Full Text: Note on financial reform from the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace

"...On the way to building a more fraternal and just human family and, even before that, a new humanism open to transcendence, Blessed John XXIII’s teaching seems especially timely. In the prophetic Encyclical Pacem in Terris of 1963, he observed that the world was heading towards ever greater unification. He then acknowledged the fact that a correspondence was lacking in the human community between the political organization “on a world level and the objective needs of the universal common good”. He also expressed the hope that one day “a true world political authority” would be created.

In view of the unification of the world engendered by the complex phenomenon of globalization, and of the importance of guaranteeing, in addition to other collective goods, the good of a free, stable world economic and financial system at the service of the real economy, today the teaching of Pacem in Terris appears to be even more vital and worthy of urgent implementation.

In the same spirit of Pacem in Terris, Benedict XVI himself expressed the need to create a world political authority.

... In all these areas, the growing interdependence between States and regions of the world becomes more and more obvious as well as the need for answers that are not just sectorial and isolated, but systematic and integrated, rich in solidarity and subsidiarity and geared to the universal common good.

...The establishment of a world political Authority should be preceded by a preliminary phase of consultation from which a legitimated institution will emerge that is in a position to be an effective guide and, at the same time, can allow each country to express and pursue its own particular good.

...Specific attention should be paid to the reform of the international monetary system and, in particular, the commitment to create some form of global monetary management, something that is already implicit in the Statutes of the International Monetary Fund.

...In fact, one can see an emerging requirement for a body that will carry out the functions of a kind of “central world bank” that regulates the flow and system of monetary exchanges similar to the national central banks.

These measures ought to be conceived of as some of the first steps in view of a public Authority with universal jurisdiction; as a first stage in a longer effort by the global community to steer its institutions towards achieving the common good.

Globalization, despite some of its negative aspects, is unifying peoples more and prompting them to move towards a new “rule of law” on the supranational level, supported by a more intense and fruitful collaboration.

...today humanity needs to be committed to the transition...to a new model of a more cohesive, polyarchic international society that respects every people's identity within the multifaceted riches of a single humanity.

The spirit of Babel is the antithesis of the Spirit of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-12), of God’s design for the whole of humanity: that is, unity in truth. Only a spirit of concord that rises above divisions and conflicts will allow humanity to be authentically one family and to conceive of a new world with the creation of a world public Authority at the service of the common good.

Saddleback's Mystical Now You See it, Now You Don't

Apprising Ministries reports:

"Centering Prayer article has suddenly disappeared from Pastors.com ( aka Rick Warren's network ) ..."

Fortunately, an Internet cached version was captured by AM:





"...Centering prayer is an ancient form of ( Roman Catholic ) prayer that is a combination of prayer and meditation. The practice was revived in the 1960s and 70s by three Cisterian monks. The practice of centering prayer allows for the recognition of thoughts and gently releases them into the hands of God. This form of prayer relies on the awareness that the Holy Spirit resides in the one who prays, connecting them heart to heart with God. "

Fear Not Though The Earth Gives Way



God Is Our Fortress

To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth.[a] A Song.


1God is our refuge and strength,
a very present[b] help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
Selah

4There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the LORD,
how he has brought desolations on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the chariots with fire.
10 "Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!"
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Solar Storm Impact: Sept 8 - 10

STRONG SOLAR ACTIVITY



Sunspot 1283 is crackling with solar flares. Yesterday, Sept. 6th, the active region produced an M5.3-class eruption at 0150 UT followed by a X2.1-class event at 2220 UT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded this extreme UV flash from the X-flare.

SOLAR RADIO BURSTS: This week's sharp increase in solar activity has turned the sun into a radio transmitter. Bursts of shortwave static are coming from the unstable magnetic canopy of sunspot 1283.

STRONG SOLAR ACTIVITY: Sunspot 1283 is crackling with solar flares. Yesterday, Sept. 6th, the active region produced an M5.3-class eruption at 0150 UT followed by a X2.1-class event at 2220 UT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded this extreme UV flash from the X-flare:

The flares produced waves of ionization in Earth's upper atmosphere, briefly altering the propagation of low-frequency radio signals around our planet. Moreover, the two eruptions hurled clouds of plasma (CMEs) in our direction. CME impacts, geomagnetic storms and auroras are expected on Sept. 8-10.

Editor's note: Brace yourself for significant earthquakes, eruptions, and severe weather for 8-10 days post-impact.

UN wants new global currency to replace dollar

THE TELEGRAPH

The dollar should be replaced with a global currency, the United Nations has said, proposing the biggest overhaul of the world's monetary system since the Second World War.

In a radical report, the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has said the system of currencies and capital rules which binds the world economy is not working properly, and was largely responsible for the financial and economic crises.

It added that the present system, under which the dollar acts as the world's reserve currency , should be subject to a wholesale reconsideration.

Although a number of countries, including China and Russia, have suggested replacing the dollar as the world's reserve currency, the UNCTAD report is the first time a major multinational institution has posited such a suggestion.

Pope Declares Mary as "The Ark of the Covenant " and " The New Eve"

Catholic Culture.org

In his midday Angelus address, delivered at the apostolic palace, Pope Benedict noted that the feast of the Assumption has “roots in the faith of the early centuries of the Church … Our forefathers were defeated by the Evil One; in the fullness of time, Jesus, the new Adam, and Mary, the new Eve, defeated the enemy definitively, and this is the joy of this day!”

Editor's note: The pope's reference to the Virgin Mary is more akin to Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code or the Egyptian mythology og Isis, Osirus and Horus.

See why the Mary of the Bible is not the same as the Mary of Rome.

The New World Order Out of Financial Chaos

THE BUSINESS INSIDER:

"...Anyway, that’s the story: there’s too much debt, it all needs to be rolled up into a new currency so that the losses can get spread around. This new currency system will come about in a top down fashion – meaning supranational institutions like the IMF and World Bank issue the currency and re-define economic regions and trade agreements, forming what essentially amounts to a world government – until there is a bottom up revolution, powered by virtual currencies issued by non-state networks. Whatever kinds of monetary systems emerge out of this mess, gold will likely play a part in this process."

THE GREAT GULF COAST HOLOCAUST

The Silent Voices of Science
As a result of spraying Corexit, many researchers have highlighted the dangers associated with exposure to the oil and the corexit. Dr. Wilma Subra, a chemist and microbiologist, speaking at “Truth Out for the Gulf Forum,” stated that blood tests taken from Gulf Coast residents who have become ill, reveals exposure to crude oil and the subsequent presence of the well known cancer causing agents of Benzene and Hexane at an average of 36 times the expected rate. Subra also found that Corexit produces the Leukemia causing agents of Ethylbenzene and Xylene at 5.7 and 5.68 times the normal expected levels in her test samples. Subra states that “this deadly toxicity is in the air, it’s in the dispersant and it is in the blood of the people."[11]

Kim Anderson’s Oregon State University (OSU) researchers, from the OSU College of Agricultural Sciences, began a test-retest comparative analysis for the carcinogenic contaminant polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and its biodegradable partner, OPAHs, which appears after the application of corexit and subsequent exposure to ultraviolet rays. Stunningly, the OSU researchers found a 40 fold increase in these carcinogenic compounds in the comparative test-retest period.[12] The OSU findings replicate the conclusions of Mace Barron [13] and the Mace Barron et al [14] regarding the toxicity of Corexit and its use in the Exxon Valdez oil spill. The Exxon Valdez oil spill and subsequent clean-up activities provides the only case study in the history of the United States involving significant exposure to the types of toxins discussed in this article as the result of an oil spill. Findings, related to the longevity of the Exxon Valdez clean-up workers, are very disturbing as their collective lifespan statistics revealed that the average life expectancy is a mere 51 years of age and nearly all of the Exxon Valdez clean-up workers are dead. [15], [16] These findings can leave little doubt that BP’s use of Corexit has seriously compromised the collective life span of Gulf Coast residents.

Self-avowed Muslim Marxist Says White House Tied to Muslim Brotherhood

THE NEW AMERICAN: Tarek Fatah — a self-described devout Muslim Marxist — has issued a strong warning that there is a Muslim Brotherhood influence at the White House. Fatah, a Canadian, delivered this caution back in June at Canada’s annual “Premier Meeting of the Minds” function; however, his announcement was all but ignored.

At the conference, Fatah expressed his own viewpoints on mainstream and radical Islam, including the Muslim Brotherhood. He asserted, “The religion of Islam is being used as a tool by a fascist force.”

He then moved on to discuss what he views as the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood at the highest level of the federal government. “Instead of bringing victory over the fascist forces of the Muslim Brotherhood, we now recognize that their infiltration is right up to the American White House, but we can’t say that,” he said.

According to Cal Thomas of the Washington Examiner, Fatah may be onto something, as it has been a longtime goal of the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate the leadership ranks of the United States. He wrote:

In 1991, a memo written by Mohamed Akram for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood spelled out the objective of the organization. Akram said the Muslim Brotherhood “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

Some observers began to ponder a potential Brotherhood influence when James Clapper, President Obama's Director of National Intelligence, publicly referred to the Muslim Brotherhood as a “heterogeneous” and “largely secular group” just hours after the organization had declared Sharia law as its ultimate goal.

'Electronic Tattoo' to Track Patients’ Vital Signs

'Electronic Tattoo' to Track Patients’ Vital Signs

An "electronic tattoo" could revolutionize medical sensing, computer gaming and even render the super slick James Bond movie gadgets antiquated.

Researchers have developed a super-thin "skin-patch" that mounts onto the skin like a temporary tattoo and has an array of electronic components that allows researchers to track key vital signs from patients. The patches are already able to monitor the heart, various other muscles and brain activity.

The micro-electronics technology, called an epidermal electronic system (EES), was developed by an international team of researchers from the United States, China and Singapore, and is described in the journal Science, reports the Associated Press.

Deep Impact of the Third Kind: DNA in Meteors

Australian meteorite behind 'space DNA' discovery







A METEORITE which crashed in Australia more than four decades ago has led to a major new discovery about the nature of humankind.

Writers and filmmakers have for decades hypothesised about little green men "out there" somewhere, but it turns out alien life may actually exist closer to home.

Much, much closer.

NASA overnight said researchers had discovered that some of the building blocks of DNA found in meteorites were actually created in space — lending weight to the idea that life on Earth began with material from the cosmos.

Scientists Say California Mega-Quake Imminent

THE WEATHER CHANNEL

Like a steaming kettle with the top on, pressure is building beneath the surface of California that could unleash a monster earthquake at any time. That's according to a new study from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

Geologists say Southern California is long overdue for a huge earthquake that could unleash widespread damage.

It all comes down to the Salton Sea, which lies to the east of San Diego. The Salton Sea lies directly on the San Andreas Fault and covers more than 350 square miles.

Churches Now Promote Islam

What would Jesus think? Churches now promote Islam

'Spiritual treason' seen as 'something hostile to Jesus Christ himself' - From World Net Daily

Dozens of Christian churches, from Park Hill Congregational in Denver to Hillview United Methodist in Boise, Idaho, and First United Lutheran in San Francisco to St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church in Honolulu, are planning to send "a message both here at home and to the Arab and Muslim world about our respect for Islam" with a time to read the Quran during worship this Sunday.

It's not just wrong, but dangerous, according to Christian trends analysts.

Not so fast, says Apprising.org religious trends analyst Ken Silva.


"I would think they need to have their spiritual heads examined. It's
foolish to think that we're going to read something that originates
with demons and read that in a Christian church," Silva said.

The action amounts to "spiritual treason," he asserted.

Evangelicalism's Altered Spiritual State

MEDITATION IN ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS AS TRANSFORMATION FOR A GLOBAL FAMILY

For the household gods utter nonsense, and the diviners see lies; they tell false dreams and give empty consolation. Therefore the people wander like sheep; they are afflicted for lack of a shepherd. (Zechariah 10:2)

...Why do Christians, who ostensibly have a personal relationship with God in Christ, suddenly have to turn to Buddhists, who may or may not even believe there is a God, in order to learn about Christian spirituality? This kind of lunacy in the Lord’s Name where Peter Scazzero, who is partnered with Willow Creek Association (WCA) and has also been promoted by PD Pope Rick Warren as well, to send his followers to basically Buddhist Bourgeault and to Thomas Keating, an apostate Roman Catholic mystic, should immediately arrest your attention.

Rick Warren Receives John Piper's Seal of Approval

World Bank: A New World Order Emerging

FREE MALAYSIA TODAY

The World Bank noted that emerging markets now account for two- thirds of the world’s foreign exchange reserves–a reversal of the picture of the previous decade when industrialized countries owned the bulk of the reserves.

China has the biggest share of the global reserves among emerging markets at US$3 trillion.

“In short, a new world order with a more diffused distribution of economic power is emerging–thus the shift toward multi- polarity,” the World Bank report.

The rising role of emerging markets would eventually diminish the primacy of the US dollar in international trade and finance. Eventually, countries would keep almost equal shares of the US dollar, the euro and the renminbi in their foreign exchange reserves, the bank added.

“Over the next decade or so, China’s size and the rapid globalization of its corporations and banks will likely mean a more important role for the renminbi. The most likely global currency scenario in 2025 will be a multi-currency systm centered around the dollar, the euro, and the renminbi,” the report said.

JOHN PIPER INTERVIEWS RICK WARREN AT SADDLEBACK from Apprising Ministries:

*UPDATE* Since this article went online at Apprising Ministries the page to the interview of Rick Warren by John Piper appears to have vanished.

However, I was able to retrieve the video page—at least for now. AM already has the pdf transcript on file, but unfortunately right now it does seem to appear at the website.


Unfortunately well-respected evangelical pastor Dr. John Piper exhibited a real error in judgment when he invited Dr. Rick Warren who, because of bullying tactics so often used in hostile Purpose Driven Church takeovers, I refer to as The Purpose Driven Pope[1] to be the keynote speaker at the Desiring God Conference 2010.

For too brief a time it opened up a bit of a Warrengate across the blogosphere as more and more people found out; and as a precious few of the big “names” within evangelicalism weighed in. Apprising Ministries has been keeping you apprised as to it all as best I can. As a former Roman Catholic, and currently a Southern Baptist minister—as is Rick Warren—it’s no secret that I’m on record as saying that Warren is heretical in, at least, his double-minded stance concerning the Roman Catholic Church...

Nuclear meltdown at Fukushima plant

THE TELEGRAPH

One of the reactors at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant did suffer a nuclear meltdown, Japanese officials admitted for the first time today, describing a pool of molten fuel at the bottom of the reactor's containment vessel.

Engineers from the Tokyo Electric Power company (Tepco) entered the No.1 reactor at the end of last week for the first time and saw the top five feet or so of the core's 13ft-long fuel rods had been exposed to the air and melted down.

Previously, Tepco believed that the core of the reactor was submerged in enough water to keep it stable and that only 55 per cent of the core had been damaged.
Now the company is worried that the molten pool of radioactive fuel may have burned a hole through the bottom of the containment vessel, causing water to leak.

1000s of dead walleye being found in Lake Erie

By JOHN SEEWER Associated Press

TOLEDO, Ohio -- Wildlife researchers want to know what's killing thousands of walleye in Lake Erie that have been washing up on beaches along its western shore.

It's a big concern for anglers who come from across the Midwest and beyond to catch the lake's most popular sport fish.

The best guess is that the die-off can be blamed on natural causes stemming from the stress of spawning and the cold, stormy spring, said Roger Knight, Lake Erie fisheries program manager for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

"It all kind of fits that picture," he said.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Salafi pact puts Egyptian Christians in great danger

THE TELEGRAPH
The Muslim Brotherhood has announced an electoral coalition with a host of Salafi groups in Egypt, under the banner of seeking an Islamic state. “It was the recent attacks on the Islamic groups that brought us together,” the Brotherhood’s lawyer Sobhi Saleh explained to an Egyptian newspaper on Tuesday.

Saleh’s newfound siege mentality is at odds with the confidence he displayed on Newsnight a few months back. A woman or a Christian, the Islamist attorney told Tim Whewell, could never be president of a post-Mubarak Egypt because Muslims constitute “95 per cent of the population” (not true) and this is the “same policy as in Greece, Spain and in England” (what’s the Arabic for “Iron Lady”?).

Among the Brotherhood’s new parliamentary partners is Jama’a al-Islamiyya, a Salafi group that played a role in the assassination of President Anwar Sadat in 1981 and recently advocated the formation of a Saudi-style “modesty police” for Egypt.

...Since the pro-democratic happenings in Tahrir Square in January, Egypt’s Christian minority has been consistently persecuted by uncorked crazies. Churches have been set alight and some areas of the country have grown so parlous that Christians are holed up in their homes, afraid to attend Mass even on Palm Sunday. The assurances of Abd Al-Azim, a leader of Gama’a in Alexandria, will have failed to persuade them to do otherwise: “If the Christians want safety they should submit to the rule of God and be confident that the Islamic sharia will protect them.”

Just this week, 190 people were detained overnight in Cairo after 12 people were killed and over 180 hurt in the working-class neighbourhood of Imbaba, where two Coptic churches and people’s homes were firebombed. The reason? A Salafi-hatched rumour that a Christian woman had converted to Islam in order to marry a Muslim man and was being held against her will in the Saint Mena Church (one of the two burnt). This came after another Christian, Camilia Shehata, had gone on television to deny a similar allegation about her proscribed conversion to Islam.

Thousands of La. Homes and Farms Going Under Water

Army makes tough choice to save New Orleans, Baton Rouge BY MICHAEL KUNZELMAN ASSOCIATED PRESS

BUTTE LAROSE, La. -- In an agonizing trade-off, Army engineers said they will open a key spillway along the bulging Mississippi River as early as Saturday and inundate thousands of homes and farms in Louisiana's Cajun country to avert a potentially bigger disaster in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

About 25,000 people and 11,000 structures could be in harm's way when the gates on the Morganza spillway are unlocked for the first time in 38 years.

Opening the spillway will release a torrent that could submerge about 3,000 square
miles under as much as 25 feet of water but take the pressure off the downstream
levees protecting New Orleans, Baton Rouge and the numerous oil refineries and
chemical plants along the lower reaches of the Mississippi.

Opening the spillway will release a torrent that could submerge about 3,000 square
miles under as much as 25 feet of water.

A Warning to America: Islamic Domination

A Warning to America

Speech of Geert Wilders, Cornerstone Church, Nashville, 12 May 2011

...Dear friends, here is my warning. Make no mistake: Islam is also coming for America. In fact, it is already here. America is facing a stealth jihad, the islamic attempt to introduce sharia law bit by bit. Last March, a judge in Tampa, Florida, ruled that a lawsuit against a mosque and involving the control of 2.4 million dollars, should proceed under Islamic law.

My friends, be aware that this is only the beginning. This is also how it started in Europe. If things continue like this, you will soon have the same problems as we are currently facing.


...If you wear a cross or a kippah in certain urban areas in Europe today, you risk being beaten up. In the capital of my own country, Amsterdam, a tram driver was forced to remove his crucifix from sight, while his Muslim colleagues are allowed to wear the veil.

In June 2008, the Christian church authorities in the Danish town of Arhus decided to pay so-called “protection money” to islamic so-called “security guards” who assure that church goers are not harassed by islamic youths.

On March 31st, 2010, Muslims entered the Roman Catholic cathedral of Cordoba, Spain, and attacked the guards with knives. They claimed the cathedral was theirs.

Last month, the bishops of Sweden sent out a letter to priests advising them to avoid converting asylum seekers from islamic countries to Christianity, because the converts would risk losing their lives.

In the Netherlands, the city authorities in Amsterdam register polygamous marriages. The authorities in Rotterdam serve only halal meals in municipal cafeterias. Theaters provide separate seats for women who are not allowed to sit next to men. Municipal swimming pools have separate swimming hours for men and women, Muslim lawyers do not have to stand when the judges enter court rooms.

Meanwhile Jews are no longer safe on our streets. In Amsterdam, the city of Anne Frank, Jews are again being harassed in the streets. Even political leaders acknowledged that life has become unsafe for Jews in Holland. Do you know what they said? They advised Jews to emigrate. Jews are already running for Israel. But I say: Jews must not leave, violent Muslims must leave!

What is needed, my friends, is a spirit of resistance.

I repeat: What we need is a spirit of resistance.

Why? Because resistance to evil is our moral duty. This resistance begins with expressing our solidarity to Christians, Jews, indeed, to all people worldwide, who are the victims of islam. There are millions of them.

We can see what islam has in store for us if we watch the fate of the Christians in the islamic world, such as the Copts in Egypt, the Maronites in Lebanon, the Assyrians in Iraq, and Christians elsewhere.

Almost every day, churches are arsoned and Christians are assassinated in islamic countries.

In a report on the persecution of Christians in the world, Archbishop Twal of Jerusalem, wrote recently– I quote: “In the Middle East to be Christian means accepting that you must make a great sacrifice. All too often and in many places, Christians suffer various threats. On some occasions, their homes and churches are burnt, and people are killed. How many atrocities must we endure before somebody somewhere comes to our aid?” – end of quote.

Resisting The Flood of Deception At Manchester Cathedral


The "New Age" Spirit of Life Event Witchcraft In Manchester Cathedral from Miguel Hayworth on Vimeo.



Ezekiel 8
7And he brought me to the entrance of the court, and when I looked, behold, there was a hole in the wall. 8Then he said to me, "Son of man, dig in the wall." So I dug in the wall, and behold, there was an entrance. 9And he said to me, "Go in, and see the vile abominations that they are committing here." 10So I went in and saw. And there, engraved on the wall all around, was every form of creeping things and loathsome beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel. 11And before them stood seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, with Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan standing among them. Each had his censer in his hand, and the smoke of the cloud of incense went up. 12Then he said to me, "Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel are doing in the dark, each in his room of pictures? For they say, 'The LORD does not see us, the LORD has forsaken the land.'" 13He said also to me, "You will see still greater abominations that they commit."

14Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of the LORD, and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. 15Then he said to me, "Have you seen this, O son of man? You will see still greater abominations than these."

16And he brought me into the inner court of the house of the LORD. And behold, at the entrance of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men, with their backs to the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east, worshiping the sun toward the east. 17Then he said to me, "Have you seen this, O son of man? Is it too light a thing for the house of Judah to commit the abominations that they commit here, that they should fill the land with violence and provoke me still further to anger? Behold, they put the branch to their nose. 18Therefore I will act in wrath. My eye will not spare, nor will I have pity. And though they cry in my ears with a loud voice, I will not hear them."

Revelation 3

20Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

The New Cross Is No Cross At All

From Apprising Ministries:

...You must also ask yourself do you really think that in this generation we are seeing the radically changed lives of Christians that we read about in the New Testament; and we have witnessed down through the ages in Church history? And are we Christians turning the world upside down; or, have we in fact become even more worldly since Tozer’s time?

He put his finger right on the problem in his comments about the so-called “new” pragmatic methods of preaching the Gospel, which were just becoming popular back in his day. For truly this weak-willed compromise of Biblical righteousness within the Church Growth Movement is not really new at all. As through the eyes of a prophet, Tozer could see the Willow Creeks and the Saddlebacks and the Lakewoods coming, and in his inimitable style he said:


The old cross [killed] men; the new cross entertains them. The old cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed confidence in the flesh; the new cross encourages it. The old cross brought tears and blood; the new cross brings laughter. The flesh, smiling and confident, preaches and sings about the [old] cross; before that cross it bows and toward that cross it points with carefully staged histrionics – but upon that cross it will not die, and the reproach of that cross it stubbornly refuses to bear.

I well know how many smooth arguments can be marshaled in support of the new cross. Does not the new cross win converts and make many followers and so carry the advantage of numerical success? Should we not adjust ourselves to the changing times? Have we not heard the slogan ‘New days, new ways?’ And who but someone very old and very conservative would insist upon death as the appointed way to life?

And who today is interested in a gloomy mysticism that would sentence its flesh to a cross and recommend self-effacing humility as a virtue actually to be practiced [even] by modern Christians? These are the arguments, along with many more flippant still, which are brought forward to give an appearance of wisdom to the hollow and meaningless cross of popular Christianity.

Anglican Cathedral Converts To New Age Circus Tent



Massage and mysticism as New Age comes to cathedral

Manchester Cathedral was transformed by stalls offering ‘meditation, mysticism and prophesy’ as part of a controversial festival.

The Spirit of Life event saw visitors being offered massage, dream interpretation and tarot-style ‘card readings’ as part of an alternative Christian event.

A tent offers ‘reflective sights’ while gemstones and music were also on show at the New Age-style event.

But organisers of the New Age-style event insist they were staying true to traditional Christian values - and trying to win over new followers to the Church.

The centuries-old cathedral was filled with stalls, demonstrations and even a full-size tent as part of the day-long festival.

Stallholders offered ‘Jesus Deck’ card readings - which they insisted were not designed to tell fortunes but instead contained passages from the Bible.

A full-size tent inside the cathedral, run by the Eden People Christian group, offered ‘reflective sights, insight objects, healing and prayer’.

Organisers said that while many of the activities drew on New Age thinking, the beliefs behind them were entirely Christian.

..."We are not selling out. The Church of England is a broad church and it includes an incredible range of people. These activities are a tool to talk about deeper Christian beliefs."

Chernobyl in the Gulf of Mexico

Atty Stuart Smith

"...Reports of unexplained health problems are soaring – and the primary suspects are the toxic compounds contained in BP’s oil and the chemical dispersants used to break down the crude. From flu-like symptoms to blindness to intense chest pain to severe sinus inflammation, people across the Gulf region are reporting debilitating illnesses in the wake of the spill.

Radioactive elements such as radium, thorium and uranium are known byproducts of the oil production process. These toxic elements are extracted from the ground along with the oil and gas, and are separated from the fossil fuels as part of the production process. Once the NORM is extracted, it is flushed directly back into the ocean in the waste-stream byproduct known as produced water. Their discharge into the Gulf of Mexico has been a daily reality since the 1950s – but the amount that was released into the water from the runaway Macondo Well is unprecedented.

...The Times also uncovered a bombshell “secret industry study” from the American Petroleum Institute (API). The study, written in 1990, states that consuming seafood from the Gulf of Mexico poses “potentially significant risks” of cancer to humans due to the radium levels in produced water discharges.

...Dr. Busby’s report (see link below) on the laboratory findings suggests that as much as 50 kilograms of uranium, or about 110 pounds, were released into the Gulf of Mexico from the BP spill. According to Dr. Busby, the tests showed the uranium content in the oil to be 0.073 mg/kg, or more than 500 times the normal concentration of uranium in seawater.

The uranium content in the oil is not the only concern, radon gases would also have been present in the methane expelled from the well and significant concentrations of radium-226 and radium-228 would have been present in the produced water discharged from the well. No estimates of these radioactive discharges have been publicly released by BP or the federal government.

Mississippi River Threatens Historic Flooding

AHN.com Rising waters continue to pose flood risks for thousands. Tornados, heavy rains and rising pressure on the region's waterways are giving scores of people to worry.

Powerful storms and record-breaking rains caused a deluge of of water to spawn heavy flooding in several central and southern states. The rising water and pressure forced the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to explode late Monday evening a levee on the Mississippi River to ease rising waters inundating the town of Cairo.

Nearly 500 National Guard personnel have been deployed to flood-affected areas in Illinois alone.

"There is no way on God's earth that we can control nature," Illinois Governor Pat Quinn said during a visit to the flooded region. "We have to respect nature. And we are going to do our mightiest to make sure that people are safe and sound."

Global Consciousness Unites on World Healing Day

World Healing Day is Saturday, April 30th, 2011

This Saturday, April 30th, in hundreds of cities in all 50 US States, and over 70 nations, a worldwide wave of mass events designed to focus humanity's consciousness on personal and global healing will unfold. Beginning in New Zealand, and then spreading time zone by time zone around Earth, World Healing Day will begin at 10 am local time, worldwide.

One World ... One Breath

The Global Consciousness Project, born out of research at Princeton University,found that during times of great tragedy human consciousness focused to such adegree that it physically affected their computers all around the world. While otherresearch found that when a small percentage of human beings harmonized theirconsciousness, they positively affected the behaviour of the community around them.



What if human consciousness was focused on a healing intention, together, for a 24 hour period? World Yoga Day, World Prayer Day, Word Healing Meditation Day...

Officially recognized by the US Department of Health & Human Service's Women's Health Week along with:



  • World Art Day


  • World Music Healing Day


  • World Prayer Day


  • World Reiki Day


  • World Healing Meditation Day


  • World Yoga Day


  • World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

Editor's note:

World Healing Day also coincides with the pagan / Satanic observance of Beltane:

"Beltane, or May Day is the fertility festival marking the beginning of summer. People often decorate their neighbor's doorsteps with fresh flowers (hence the tradition of May Day Baskets), enjoy picnics with their families, and dance around a maypole to insure fertility for the coming year.

This represents the Goddess in ascendancy as the Mother, and the death of the God after the conception of the Divine Child."


Beltane Eve ( WALPURGISNATCH ) is often celebrated with a festival that includes bonfires and fertility rites and is the greatest Witches Sabbat. Animal and human sacrifice will take place within thousands of Satanic covens around the world on both days.

Goddess ascendancy, the death of the God and the Divine conception harken back to ancient Egyptian religion regarding Isis, Osirus & Horus.

Tom Horn's book, Apollyon Rising, provides irrefutable evidence that proves that the Egyptian resurrection theme is embedded in the foundations of the United States of America, pointing to the resurrection or return of Osirus, the Lord of the Underworld.

Also, Mother / Goddess Earth was honored by the UN last week on "Mother Earth Day".

2 Thessalonians 2
3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction

Israel urges world not to recognise new Palestinian government

Nicosia/Tel Aviv - Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman called Friday on world countries not to recognise the Palestinian government to be set up after the Islamist Hamas and the mainstream Fatah movements announced a reconciliation deal.

'The international community must not legitimize the government whose face is the face of (Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas,) and whose arms are the arms of Hamas, who launches missiles at citizens and stains innocents with blood,' he told Cypriot President Emetris Christofias during a meeting in Nicosia, according to a statement issued by his office after the meeting.

Representatives from Hamas and Fatah announced in Cairo Wednesday night their intention to reconcile, after a four-year-long bitter and times violent rift, which saw Hamas administering the Gaza Strip and the West Bank under the control of the Fatah dominated Palestinian Authority.

The agreement, if implemented, will see the Hamas government in Gaza, and the West Bank government headed by Salam Fayyad, replaced by an interim unity government consisting of 'professional' figures, which will prepare for Palestinian elections.

Arabs to March on Israel on May 15th


THIRD PALESTINIAN INTIFADA: All Arabs to March on Israel on May 15th

“With those powerful political storms rolling up the Middle East, and with this unstoppable and unpredictable domino effect of popular uprisings, how long before we watch the Israeli domino piece fall down”


“And if dictatorships are not tolerated in the Arab world anymore, why the Israeli quasi-dictatorship over the Palestinians should be any exception”

Pro-Israel lobbying. An Israeli Cabinet minister, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and a massive American-Zionist campaign have succeeded in pressuring Facebook into removing the “third Intifada” page, which clearly calls for an all-Arab uprising against Israel.According to the facebook “cause” page, the plan for the intifada would go as follows;

Friday, May 13th In Egypt, the epicenter of the Arab world, the biggest Arab country and from Tahrir square at the heart of Cairo where the whole Arab spring has sprung and gained fervent momentum, this massive Arab intifada will be launched.

Millions will gather once again in Tahrir square at the heart of Cairo but this time to call for all Arab-march toward Israel.

This mass protest will come two days prior to the actual march, as a clear message to Israel and the rest of the world that liberating Palestine is the core cause for every Arab in the Middle East. And that restoring Jerusalem is all Arab’s sacred mission

Sunday, May 15th To commemorate the Palestinian exodus day 1948 ( Nakba) when well over 750000 Palestinians were forcibly expelled out of their home land by Israel, similar number of thousands angry Arab protesters from Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon along with their Palestinian brothers from Gaza and the occupied west bank will advance toward Israel in what they call, the third intifada.

Sai Baba funeral sees India's luminaries mourn with thousands of followers

THE GUARDIAN

Thousands of tearful devotees have gathered for the funeral of Sathya Sai Baba, who was revered by his followers as a divine incarnation with miraculous healing powers.

The 84-year-old guru's death on Sunday triggered an outpouring of grief from followers including top Indian politicians, movie stars, athletes and industrialists.

Hindus usually cremate their dead, but infants and people considered pure and saintly are often buried. The guru was buried inside the same auditorium at his ashram in the southern Indian town of Puttaparti, where his body had been on display and where he gave his sermons.

...Within India, Sai Baba was a well-known face, with his photograph adorning millions of homes, car dashboards and lockets worn by Indian and foreign believers. Sai Baba ashrams exist in more than 126 countries. The guru was said to perform miracles, conjuring jewellery, Rolex watches and "vibhuti", a sacred ash that his followers applied to their foreheads from his hair.

Blood taken from John Paul to be used as relic

THE TELEGRAPH

Blood taken from Pope John Paul II during his final hospital stay will be used as the official relic for veneration after he is beatified.

The Vatican made the announcement yesterday, ending speculation over what relic would be presented during Sunday's beatification.

In a statement, the Vatican said four small vials of blood had been taken from John Paul during his final days for a possible transfusion, but were never used. Two of the vials were given to John Paul's private secretary, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, and another two remained at the Vatican's Bambin Gesu hospital in the care of nuns.

One of the hospital vials will be placed in a reliquary and presented on Sunday, while the other will remain with the nuns. John Paul died April 2, 2005.

FOX NEWS
VATICAN CITY – During his 2005 funeral Mass, crowds at the Vatican shouted for Pope John Paul II to be made a saint immediately, chanting "Santo Subito!" for one of the most important and beloved popes in history.

His successor heard their call and on Friday, in the fastest process on record, set May 1 as the date for John Paul's beatification -- a key step toward Catholicism's highest honor and a major morale boost for a church reeling from the clerical sex abuse scandal.

Pope Benedict XVI set the date after declaring that a French nun's recovery from Parkinson's disease was the miracle needed for John Paul to be beatified. A second miracle is needed for the Polish-born John Paul to be made a saint.

The May 1 ceremony -- which Benedict himself will celebrate -- is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of pilgrims to Rome for a precedent-setting Mass: never before has a pope beatified his immediate predecessor.

Editor's note: Regarding relics....

Is Catholicism Biblical? A Former Catholic Nun Looks at the Evidence by Mary Ann Collins:

Relics were believed to have spiritual power to protect people from demons, give them victory in war, and bless them in other ways. People wore small relics on chains around their necks, as charms for protection. Churches were built over the bodies of saints. Important relics drewpilgrims, which could have a significant financial impact on a community. Bodies of saints were stolen and portions of them were sold for money. Graveyards were robbed, and the bodies were passed off as relics of saints. Kings and bishops took great risks to steal the bodies of important saints. Towns that had relics prospered and expanded.6 Relics were important for raising money. Historian Paul Johnson says, “A cathedral without a well-known saint was missing an important source of revenue.”

Rome to Host 1 Million Pilgrims for John Paul Beatification

April 27 (Bloomberg) -- Rome’s population will swell by about 1 million people this weekend as pilgrims from around the world descend on the city to celebrate the beatification of John Paul II, the Polish-born pope who died in 2005.

The Italian capital’s 1,000-plus hotels are almost fully booked, with some rooms going at double their usual rate, according to the hotel.info booking service. Police closed six hotels and issued more than 300,000 euros ($438,000) in fines for tourist rip-offs and practices including adding up to eight beds to small rooms, Ansa news wire reported April 21.

Church-run hostels and guest houses have been “inundated with requests” since the current pope, Benedict XVI, announced John Paul’s beatification, said Sister Emilia of the Giusti Hotel, run by nuns of the Saint Ann of Providence order. Beatification is the third of four steps in the process of canonization, or becoming a saint.
