Pope Travels To Egypt

The Pope's perilous mission to Egypt

"...The Pope will have a delicate task in that address: Christians will expect him to clearly condemn Islamic extremism; Muslims will expect him to avoid indicting Islam itself.
El-Tayeb and other Muslim leaders have been keen to point out that Christians aren't the only victims of terrorism. Many Muslims suffer as well. Al-Azhar broke off dialogue with the Vatican in 2011 after taking offense at former Pope Benedict XVI's condemnation of a church bombing in which 21 Coptic Christians died.
"It was taken by al-Azhar as an unwarranted intrusion into Egyptian affairs and a misapprehending of the rights of Christians in Egypt," Reynolds said.
Still, many Christians may expect Francis to raise the issue of their rights in Muslim-majority countries, where they are often treated as second-class citizens.
The Egyptian government, for example, imposes legal penalties on Muslim-born citizens who convert, and does not recognize their new religious identities, according to the US State Department."

Holocaust survivors work to preserve their stories

Holocaust survivors in Sonoma County work to preserve their stories

Alfred and Susanne Batzdorff of Santa Rosa are two of a dwindling number of Holocaust survivors remaining in Sonoma County, now estimated between 20 and 30.

Soon, there will be no survivors left, which is why the Batzdorffs, both 95, are working so closely with the county’s Alliance for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide to find ways to keep remembrance of the Holocaust from fading solely into the history books.

The Batzdorffs decided something needed to be done to bring the knowledge of what happened in the Holocaust to the public.

They created “The Phoenix Coalition,” a group of people, including clergy members, with the goal to educate, but quickly realized the clergy members had no real knowledge of what happened during the Holocaust, either.

“There was this huge chasm to be bridged,” said Susanne Batzdorff. “We figured if they didn’t know about it, their congregants wouldn’t either. It became really necessary.”

In November 1988, the Batzdorffs’ began speaking publicly to churches, community groups and schools about their flight from Nazi Germany.

Fifty years earlier, on Nov. 9 and 10, 1938, the wave of violence now known as Kristallnacht swept through Germany, Austria and the former Czechoslovakia, with Nazis and sympathizers destroying and plundering Jewish homes, synagogues and businesses, and attacking Jews in the streets.

"...But the narrative provided by Mazen is mostly propaganda meant for the untrained non-Muslim ear, dutifully passed on as “news” by politically correct media outlets, says Clare Lopez, vice president of research and analysis for the Center for Security Policy and author of “Star Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America’s First Muslim Brotherhood Party.”
Lopez noted Mazen  was a founding member of the CAIR chapter in Massachusetts after serving as the president of the Muslim Student Association at MIT.
CAIR and the MSA are both off-shoots of the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, which is banned as a terrorist organization in at least half a dozen countries, including Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE.
While most Muslim politicians publicly support social justice, environmental justice, free and easy abortions, same-sex marriage and the full pallet of LGBTQ rights, that is merely a means to an end. The ultimate goal is Shariah law for Americans, Lopez said.
But who could ever get elected in America on a platform of Shariah law?
She says the Brotherhood will back candidates who wrap themselves in the liberal causes of the day and attach themselves to the Democratic Party, knowing that they have a ready-made political machine eager to push their candidates to the forefront of American politics.
“We know that the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood began planning at least a decade ago to seed the U.S. political system with young, up-and-coming, Shariah-adherent, Shariah-promoting stealth jihadist like Ilhan Omar in Minnesota – now it’s happening – they are shrewdly using our own system against us – via Star Spangled Shariah.”
Omar made headlines Thursday when she was one of only two lawmakers to vote against a bill in the Minnesota State House that would allow life insurance companies to deny death benefits to the families of dead terrorists.

The Rider on a White Horse

The Rider on a White Horse

Revelation 19English Standard Version (ESV)

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 
12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself.
13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in[b] blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 
14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 
15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule[c] them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 
16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.



Syria’s Christians are part of a mass exodus taking place throughout the Middle East, the cradle of the faith. Today, Christians are only about four per cent of the region’s more than four hundred million people—and probably less. They “have been subject to vicious murders at the hands of terrorist groups, forced out of their ancestral lands by civil wars, suffered societal intolerance fomented by Islamist groups, and subjected to institutional discrimination found in the legal codes and official practices of many Middle Eastern countries,” as several fellows at the Center for American Progress put it.

...The largest exodus of Christians is in Iraq, where the group has been trapped in escalating sectarian clashes between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, targeted by an Al Qaeda franchise, and forced to flee by the Islamic State. “There were 1.3 million Christians in Iraq in 2003. We’re down by a million since then,” with hundreds more leaving each month, Bashar Warda, a Chaldean bishop in the northern city of Erbil, the Kurdish capital, told me last month. He was wearing a pink zucchetto skullcap and an amaranth sash tied around his black cassock. A large silver cross hung around his neck.

Within days of its conquest of Mosul, isis issued an ultimatum to Christians to either convert to Islam, pay an exorbitant and open-ended tax, or face death “by the sword.” Homes of Christians were marked by a large “N” for “Nassarah,” a term in the Koran for Christians.

Some thirty-five thousand Christians fled. Many of their homes were ransacked and then set alight. En route to Mosul, I passed other Christian villages, like Bartella, that had also emptied. Even gravestones at the local cemetery were bullet-ridden. In all, a hundred thousand Christians from across the Biblical Nineveh Plains are estimated to have abandoned their farmlands, villages, and towns for refuge in northern Kurdistan—or beyond Iraq’s borders.

“For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians,” the Chaldean Patriarch Louis Sako told Agence France-Presse.

NASA: Saturn Moon May Support Alien Life

Maize was referring to a warm, saltwater ocean that Cassini found hiding beneath the icy crust of Enceladus, a large moon of Saturn that spews water into space. NASA's probe flew through these curtain-like jets of vapor and ice in October 2015, "tasted" the material, and indirectly discovered the subsurface ocean's composition - and it's one that may support alien life

The Scroll and the Lamb

Revelation 5English Standard Version (ESV)

Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 

And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”

And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. And he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne. And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying,
“Worthy are you to take the scroll
    and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
    from every tribe and language and people and nation,
10 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
    and they shall reign on the earth.”
11 Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice,
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”
13 And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
14 And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

U.S. Navy strike group to move toward Korean peninsula: U.S. official

U.S. Navy strike group will move toward Korea -source


By Idrees Ali | WASHINGTON

A U.S. Navy strike group will be moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula as a show of force, a U.S. official told Reuters on Saturday, as concerns grow about North Korea's advancing weapons program.

Earlier this month North Korea tested a liquid-fueled Scud missile which only traveled a fraction of its range.

The strike group, called Carl Vinson, includes an aircraft carrier and will make its way from Singapore toward the Korean peninsula, according to the official, who was not authorized to speak to the media and requested anonymity.

"We feel the increased presence is necessary," the official said, citing North Korea's worrisome behavior.

EGYPT: Two Palm Sunday Church Bombings

Egypt terror attacks: Church bombings see 40 worshippers dead in Tanta and suicide bomber strike in Alexandria

Government officials have denounced the first blast as a terror attack at a church in Tanta - before second blast 125km away causing Palm Sunday havoc

Egypt has been rocked by two bomb blasts in churches in different areas of the country as worshippers celebrate Palm Sunday.

Around 40 worshippers are thought to have been killed and over 70 injured after a bomb exploded inside a church in Tanta during a televised Palm Sunday service .

Then hours later a suicide bomber was said to have targeted a Coptic church in the northern city of Alexandria.

Eyewitnesses describe the scene as chaotic with people crying in the streets and ambulances rushing to the area - which has been closed off by police.

Local reports say two people have died - including a policeman who was believed to have tackled the bomber - at the Church of St Mark in the city.

Vatican, U.S. church officials back gay-friendly book

Top Vatican, U.S. church officials back gay-friendly book

David Gibson, Religion News Service 12:56 p.m. ET April 7, 2017

The Vatican’s point man on family issues and a U.S. cardinal who is close to Pope Francis have both written blurbs for a new book by a Jesuit priest and popular author that calls on the Catholic Church to be more respectful and compassionate toward gay people.
They called it “brave, prophetic, and inspiring” and a “much-needed book.”
Such positive language from such senior church leaders is extraordinary and another sign of how Francis is reorienting the church toward a more pastoral focus.
Building Bridges: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity, by Rev. James Martin of America magazine, does not advocate for any changes in doctrine nor does it touch third-rail topics like same-sex marriage; nor do the churchmen who praise the book, to be published by HarperOne on June 13.

Were Muslim Rebels Behind Syrian Chemical Attack?

What The Media Is Not Telling You About Who Is Behind The Chemical Attack: Muslim Rebels Were Behind The Chemical Attack And Now The Us Government Is Using It To Justify Bombing Syria

"...So now we come to the million dollar question that no serious ‘analyst’ can answer. The Syrian government has achieved significant gains, while its rebel adversaries are largely in disarray. It has taken back the cities of Aleppo and Homs, and was on the cusp of negotiating issues of aid and reconstruction with world powers under the aegis of the U.N. Assad was getting a clean slate. Why would Assad risk it all by carrying out a chemical attack?

Or is it that the rebels were done with and they needed an ace from under Turkey’s sleeve? In fact, just last week reported on how the US military, working in conjunction with Islamic rebel forces, has been blocking Syrian troops from attacking ISIS held territory. And now, a week later, the US attacks Syria. Coincidence? You decide. The same policies that were conducted in the last administration are being continued in the current one. Why? Because its part of a plan that was configured by the CIA all the way back in the 80s (more on this in a future article).

As I wrote in 2014, the taking out of Soviet influenced leaders — such a Saddam — was planned out years in advance, before even George W. Bush was president. According to US Army General Wesley Clark, in 1991, Paul Wolfowitz told him that the US had 5-10 years to “clean up those old Soviet client regimes, Syria, Iran, Iraq, before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us.”

World War III Is Knocking On the Door

Damascus Destroyed-Mark of the Beast- World War III Is Knocking On the Door

Where will the war start? It will begin in Syria. Why? Because the Bible tells us so!

Syria and Saraevjo

The winds war are blowing. Syria looks like and feels like Sarajevo prior to the commencement of World War I in which one assassination set up a war that killed millions. This conflict, which will go nuclear, looks and feels like World War I from our past. However, these events and their outcome have been foretold thousands of years ago in the Bible. As I review the relevant passages, perhaps you will get the same sinking feeling in my stomach that I did when I began to realize the inevitability of it all.

Biblical Prophecy

The Bible predicts that Damascus, Syria will be destroyed in the last days before a terrible time of God’s judgment. This will precede the day that Jesus Christ returns to defeat Israel’s enemies.
Isa 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
The destruction of Damascus is a prophecy that some mistakenly think that it stands alone in the Bible. However, it turns out that it is only the first in a sequence of events that are increasingly more serious with much more profound effects on the human race.
Ezekiel Chapter 38 tells us about a Turkish led invasion into Israel. Turkey is accompanied by Iran, Sudan, and Libya (Ezekiel 38:5).
Saudi Arabia is also mentioned in Ezekiel 38:13Do you think it is a coincidence that all of these nations are fighting in Syria as I write these words?

Gog and Magog

Geographically, Turkey and Syria have a common border. Many Biblical scholars think that the stage has been set for the Ezekiel 38 battle of Gog and Magog.
Today Magog represents the “primary governor” of Turkey. I would call him the Prime Minister of Turkey. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is the modern day manifestation of Magog as predicted in Ezekiel 38. Some believe that Erdogen is also the fulfillment of the Assyrian in Isaiah 10.
Modern day World War III will end with the destruction of Damascus. The rogue Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan will then  lead terrorists from  Al-Qaeda and ISIS from Libya and also Hezbollah and Muslim Brotherhood  jihadists from Iran and Sudan in an invasion into Israel.
This is where things get very serious as the bible identifies the leader of this invasion will be none other than the Antichrist.

Will Pope Declare Mary of Rome Co-Redeemer?

Will Pope Francis acknowledge the Holy Mother as the 'Co-Redemptrix' at Fatima this year?

On January 1, 2017, the Theological Commission of the International Marian Association (IMA) released a 10-page document titled "The Role of Mary in Redemption: A Document of the Theological Commission of the International Marian Association."

The document served as a request for Pope Francis to "publicly acknowledge and honor Mary, the Mother of  Jesus, as the 'Co-redemptrix with Jesus the Redeemer" during the 2017 centenary anniversary of the Marian Apparitions at Fatima, Portugal.

...Mary's Immaculate Conception prepares her to be the perfect human partner with Jesus the Redeemer.

...The development of the doctrine of Mary's Coredemption with Jesus within Tradition begins with the early Church concept of the "New Eve"; Mary's united suffering with Jesus at Calvary and the "Redemptrix" title (10th century); Mary's compassion and being "co-crucified" with Jesus (12th century); the "Co-redemptrix" title (15th century); the "golden age" of Co-redemptrix (17th century), leading to its 19th century official teaching

  1. Mary Co-redemptrix proclaims to the world that suffering is redemptive when united to the sufferings of Christ.
  2. The year 2017 commemorates the centenary anniversary of the historic apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, which is in itself constitutes a powerful manifestation of Our Lady's Coredemption in action...

Is The Mary of Rome The Mary of the Bible

Pope meets British imams

Pope Francis meets British imams at the Vatican

"...Pope Francis told the imams that listening to each other was essential for the common future of humanity as we walk together in our shared lives.
“This is a historic moment when the two biggest religions in the world, Christians and Muslims, must come together in unity and solidarity for peace,” Moulana Muhammad Shahid Raza said."

...“This is an important meeting offering hope for everyone, regardless of religion. There is a common humanity to all of us. Some seek to divide people, religions, east versus west, but there is no east or west; there is just our common humanity as we seek a peaceful future for all based on justice and compassion.”
