Be Very Alert! – By Val Hollard (NZ)
On Watch at the Door No 300, 2 March 2020
In his prophecy update of the 17th February, Jacob Prasch points out the close connection between plagues and famines when the ‘birth pains’ finally begin. “There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.” (Luke 21:11)
There are two plagues of major concern in the world right now but about 10 others are also of concern. One is the huge locust plague stretching across from Congo to Western China eating everything in sight. The other is the Covid-19 virus which started in China but is increasingly affecting dozens of other countries. The first main centres of both plagues are where Christians are being severely persecuted, the ‘apocalyptic’ locust plague affecting Muslim countries where there are many terrorists who hate Jews and Christians, and China where the government is coming down heavily on Christianity. The plagues can be seen as judgements, or warnings of even further judgements to come. As a result of the convergence of many disasters, global food production is down considerably and millions are facing famine.
What we are seeing now is a taste of something which will be far worse when the Seals of Revelation 6 are opened. Covid-19 is far more serious than the SARS outbreak of 2002/2003 when China’s economy was not so important. Scientists have found that Covid-19 is up to 20 times more likely to bind to human cell receptors than SARS. The final plagues will be even more dangerous and widespread as Christians around the world, including in Western countries, will be persecuted too. Many will be slain for their faith.
There are so many plagues, famines and earthquakes around the world now that some Christians are wondering if we are actually seeing the fulfilment of the 4th seal of Revelation 6. Unfortunately most pastors can’t answer this because they do not understand Bible prophecy and are often wilfully ignorant of it. Rick Warren tells people to ignore Bible prophecy. The apostle Paul says “Do not treat prophecies with contempt.” (1 Thess 5:20) Others say all you need to do is to love Jesus.
There are some things that people who believe in a pre-tribulation Rapture should note. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that the last seven years are all the wrath of God, and nowhere does it say that they are all “the tribulation” period. To believe these one needs to read things into Scripture which aren’t there (eisegesis). Jesus calls the last three and a half years the “great tribulation” (Matt 24:21 KJV) and refers the reader to Daniel (Dan 9:27). It is the time when Jews are told to flee from Judea and Samaria. Christians have always suffered tribulation and persecution and we are told to expect it. (Jam 1:2-4; 2 Tim 3:12)
The Rapture will not take place before the birth pains (Matt 24:4-8) but will take place before God pours out His wrath (“orge”) beginning in the 6th Seal and in the Trumpet and Bowl judgements. The word for wrath in Revelation 6:16-17 is “orge.” Jesus says that when you see the start of these things to look up because your redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:25-28).
The disasters facing the citizens of the world now are just a taste of what will come. Like birth pains, they will increase in frequency and severity. There is already much fear and panic. It will be far worse in the future. Stand firm in the faith, be alert and keep your eyes on Jesus and the hope that we as Christians have!
Authorities can easily use the coronavirus as an excuse to roll out long-desired schemes of control and manipulation. The government in China is already using Covid-19 to gain even more control of its citizens. China also wants to remove bank notes as they are seen as a way that the virus can be spread, but this move will lead to greater control of the monetary system.
The pandemic happens to fit perfectly the top priorities of the globalist agenda: depopulation, authoritarian government and the elimination of the elderly. Even the mainstream media is now admitting that humanity is facing “a perfect storm” as one crisis overtakes another at a breath-taking pace. Those who don’t know their Bibles will not understand. There will be increasing controls by governments and moves towards a One World Government and a One World Economy which will eventually be led by the Antichrist who will deceive many Christians. Jesus warns about deception four times in Matthew 24. Make absolutely certain that you are not deceived!
PERSECUTION AND ANTISEMITISM
China has appointed an official who spearheaded the removal of hundreds of crosses from churches and completely demolished some to a key position overseeing affairs in Hong Kong and Macau.
Bibles have become a target of government raids in China. The communist regime is now attempting to eliminate all illegal publications, forcing some believers to consider hiding Bibles in the mountains. Government officials have recently raided an underground church in Jiangxi province and seized multiple boxes of Bibles, hymn books and other literature. They also wrote down the IDs of church members and threatened to arrest them if they met again. In some locations, church members have stopped bringing their Bibles to church out of concern they will be taken from them.
A High Court in Pakistan has judged that Muslim men may marry underage Christian girls as long as they have had their first menstrual cycle, contravening an earlier law that forbade marriage for any girl under the age of 18 in the face of widespread abductions.
Five million people in Nigeria have marched against Islamic extremist terror, culminating a three-day fast organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria.
The UN Human Rights Council has published a blacklist of 112 companies operating in Israeli settler areas across Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights, accusing them of raising ‘particular human rights concerns.’ The UNHRC continues to ignore the atrocities of surrounding Muslim countries while attacking the only democratic country in the ME.
Israel has fired back after an onslaught of rockets from Gaza which resulted in entire cities being shut down. Watch for the results of the latest Israeli elections.
A satirical Belgian carnival parade decried by Israel’s foreign minister as “hateful” went ahead despite being withdrawn from the United Nation’s list of recognised cultural events over accusations of racism and anti-Semitism.
The makers of Barbie dolls are taking the doll into the New Age with mindfulness meditation with Wellness Barbie. In the collection are two Breath With Me Barbies who come sitting in the lotus position. Highlights stated include lights and sounds designed to inspire mindfulness and you can just press a button in her necklace to start one of the five guided meditation exercises that kids can practice too.
More than 1180kg of methamphetamine was nabbed heading into NZ last year – enough to cause nearly $1.5 billion worth of harm. Altogether Customs has stopped more than three tonnes of illegal drugs coming into NZ last year. That included 329kg of ephedrine and pseudo-ephedrine precursors, which could have been converted into methamphetamine, and large amounts of ecstasy and cocaine.
In the US, Ohio County may need a second morgue to handle the number of fentanyl overdoses.
Nearly one in six children around the world – 415 million children in all – were living in a conflict zone in 2018, more than double the figure recorded in 1995, according to a report released by Save the Children.
In NW Syria on the border with Turkey there is a dangerous conflict between Turkey and the Syrian regime. At least 500,000 children, some now freezing to death, are among the more than 800,000 people, including Christians, who have been displaced over the last two-and-a-half months as Assad’s regime carries on with its attacks in the last remaining rebel-held enclaves in northwest Syria amid very cold weather and rains. It is the worst refugee crisis of the long civil war and Turkey is threatening to unleash more refugees into Europe if they don’t pay him for keeping them back.
Iran is being blamed for spreading Covid-19 to Muslim countries throughout the Middle East. Saudi Arabia has suspended pilgrimages to Mecca and other holy sites in an effort to stop the spread.
AS IN THE DAYS OF LOT (Luke 17:28) Sexual immorality is one of the main signs that we are in the last days. People are losing their sanity!
Swiss voters have overwhelmingly supported a referendum to make sexual orientation-based discrimination a criminal offence. Offenders could face a fine and up to three years imprisonment. Such laws will make it very difficult for churches and church organisations which stand by biblical beliefs.
Nike, one of the biggest manufacturers of international sports equipment, is actively working to stop a number of US states from fighting the injustice of transgender sports. They are ignoring the fact that males are built to be physically stronger than females. Males have been stealing trophies and scholarships from girls. Over 100 other businesses are taking the same approach as Nike.
NZ transgender women’s superheavyweight weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has won a contest at the Roma World Cup, the first Olympic qualifying event of the year. A number of transgender competitors are expected to compete at the 2020 Olympic Games if the Games are not stopped by Covid-19.
A new study by LifeWay Research reveals that a majority of Protestant pastors in the US still disapprove of same-sex relationships, but the overall approval has grown largely due to mainline pastors. The study suggests that Presbyterian or Reformed (49%), Methodist (47%), and Lutheran (35%) are more likely to approve of same-sex marriage than Baptist (3%) or Pentecostal pastors (1%).
Fitbit is under fire on social media for, of all things, a supposed lack of gender “inclusivity” within the software for its popular fitness trackers which were recently revealed to be incapable of tracking the illusive male menstrual period. It started when a transgender Twitter user publicly called out Fitbit customer support for placing an app feature meant to track users’ menstrual cycles under the “Female Health” umbrella.
The Boy Scouts of America has filed for bankruptcy protection due to falling membership and a surge of child abuse lawsuits. Over 12,000 victims have come forward with claims against BSA. The Scouts will likely be forced to sell campgrounds and hiking trails in order to raise the necessary funds for a compensation trust that will top out at over a billion dollars.
The World Health Organisation is not yet prepared to call Covid-19 a pandemic, but it is certainly creating panic in many people. Believers need not fear anything for their hope is not in this world but in the one to come. “The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (Deut 31:8)

Un-biblical meditation, false spirituality and mysticism are on the increase as further signs of the end of this age. This is happening both inside and outside the church. There is also an increase in panic and fear, especially because of Covid-19. People are turning to anything but Jesus to reduce stress but are, unfortunately, placing themselves under the control of the devil. Here is some recent news:
In a 2020 three-part series titled “Mysteries of the Mind,” The American Legion magazine tells veterans they should practice transcendental meditation if they feel stressed, saying that TM “can help veterans confronting PTSD.”
In NZ, the cover story in the ‘Your Weekend’ section of a recent Waikato Times is about promoting meditation sessions in prisons. Following a trial at Rimutaka Prison, for more than three years Ishaya monks of the Bright Path have been teaching ascension meditation techniques in prisons around the country. Last year, 46 courses were delivered in prisons teaching about 400 people including some Corrections staff.
According to Wikipedia, the purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for Easter through prayer, doing penance, mortifying the flesh, repentance of sins, almsgiving, and denial of ego. This event is observed in the Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, Presbyterian, Oriental Orthodox, Reformed, and Roman Catholic Churches. Some Anabaptist and evangelical churches also observe the Lenten season. The Lighthouse Trails editors warn that since the contemplative prayer movement has come into full swing, more and more churches are observing Lent. They say, “Lent is often being used as the open door to bring contemplative prayer into a church. This is largely done through the multitudes of books from religious publishers who have now become conduits for contemplative spirituality.” The 40-day Lent period before Easter was introduced by the RC Church in the 4th C shortly following the Council of Nicea in 325 AD. It was not practised by the early church. It is now drawing more evangelicals towards Rome and into un-biblical contemplative practices.
A group of “Christian witches” are holding their annual convention at Easter in Salem, Massachusetts, organised by Rev. Valerie Love. The group will include sorcerers, wizards, warlocks, necromancers and the like. The convention will include lectures on “Magickal Practice in the Christian Witchcraft Tradition,” a cemetery walk, Tarot, palmistry, and Angel readings. There will be a Harry Potter-themed costume party. The witches’ convention will culminate with a Church service on the Sunday. In 2014 the Pew Research Center found that there may be now 1-1.5 million Americans who self-identify as Wiccan or Pagan. Many of them have used social media to gather in order to hex President Trump.
Calling sage burning “witchcraft” and “satanic aromatherapy,” US Pastor Jamal Bryant of a Baptist Church in Georgia has warned his members to stay away from the practice. Some members of his church gave him some sage after he moved into his new home. He investigated and decided that it was a demonic New Age practice. Native Americans call it smudging and believe that certain herbs carry spirits in them and when you burn certain herbs you’re calling on those spirits to dispel evil or vexing spirits or energies from a space, from an object or person.
Europe is leaving Christianity for paganism. What was the Martyr’s Free Church in Edinburgh is now “Frankenstein,” a bar that describes itself as a family-friendly venue but also a place for stag parties, bar top dancers and monsters. St Paul’s Church in Bristol, England, is now a school for circus performers. And in Llanera, Spain, the Church of Santa Barbara is now “Kaos Temple,” a skateboard park. Europe today has more empty church buildings than it knows what to do with and the move away from Christianity is accelerating.
Congregants from the Seattle-based Satanic Temple of Washington drew a crowd of prayerful onlookers as they hoisted their pentagram and conducted a satanic ritual at the state Capitol Friday, March 6.
Last year Roman Catholics, evangelicals, pagans, Muslims and Buddhists gathered at the “Ring of Peace” United Nations Alliance of Civilisations Religions for Peace World Assembly in Germany. The guiding “light” for this ecumenical extravaganza was the “Ring of Peace.” A 25-foot wooden ring-shaped sculpture was erected by the organisers to be a “permanent, multi-faith symbol” of interfaith cooperation. According to the creators of this modern-day idol, the ring is supposed to represent the wheel of Buddha, the ring of the Prophet Mohammed, the ring of King Solomon and Lessing’s Ring Parable – a story which equates different faiths as one.
Dear friends, you can see from the above how far the world is going away from the one true God to following anything the devil puts before them. The number of Christians in America who are actively practising their faith has fallen by about half since 2000, according to a new survey. But you dear brothers and sisters in Christ, hold on to the truth of the Bible and do not part from it, not a step to the left or the right, but keep persevering no matter how much the world turns against you and how much you may suffer.
There is a mammoth amount of information coming out about Covid-19. The virus is regarded as more infectious than some of the earlier viruses of concern, but with a lower mortality rate. Older people are far more at risk of serious effects. Two strains of it have been identified, one more serious than the other.
The majority of countries in the world now have cases but there are several countries which could be badly affected. India has a very poor health system and is unlikely to be able to cope with the growing number of cases there. The same holds true for many African countries. Turkey (2 reported cases) and Syria seemed to be spared so far but if the virus got into the refugee camps along the border of these two countries, millions of refugees living in cramped and inadequate conditions would fare badly. There are well over 3 million refugees in Turkey and 4 million who have been forced into camps along the northern border of Syria. At the same time, Turkey is trying to force more refugees on to Europe.
As Covid-19 cases burgeon in Italy, Rome has just about ground to a halt and movement is now restricted throughout Italy, locking down some 60 million people. There has been rioting in prisons resulting in six deaths and the escape of some prisoners. Others countries are following Italy’s lead and closing down too. Despite the Italian government’s ban on travel, Pope Francis has urged Catholic priests to go out and visit people with Covid-19!
The Iranian regime blames Covid-19 on an anti-Semitic “Zionist conspiracy.” The government of Iran is to release 70,000 prisoners serving sentences of less than five years, including many Christians, to lessen the spread of the virus within prisons. Two Iranian men are facing severe penalties after they recorded themselves licking holy shrines in the city of Qom, encouraging people to visit despite President Hassan Rouhani saying the virus has spread to nearly every province in the country. They wanted to show that faith is stronger than viruses. Meanwhile in Afghanistan imams are saying that verses from the Qur’an, blessed by an imam and worn on clothes, can prevent the virus.
We don’t seem to be hearing much from the health, wealth and prosperity preachers! But there is some news! Bethel Church in Redding, California, a New Apostolic Reformation Church, seems to have cancelled their healing rooms due to fears of Covid-19. Of its Healing Rooms, Bethel Church writes: “The Healing Rooms is a ministry that is pursuing the Holy Spirit and His healing power. We are creating a place for Him to bring life, wholeness and love to those who are suffering from physical ailments.” Doesn’t this tell us something about their ‘healing?’
After Covid-19 life is never going to be the same again. The world is taking a giant leap into the unknown as many thousands around the world are losing jobs, seeing businesses and schools closing down, meetings of all sorts cancelled, travel bans and now whole countries in lock-down. Some believe this will be the end of globalisation, but the most likely outcome will be a whole New World Order and such chaos that people will be looking for a man who could fix it, and it won’t be Jesus they’ll be turning to! But it is Jesus who is our hope, and no matter how dark the coming days are, He will continue to guide us and help us through every stormy blast that comes our way. Keep your eyes upon Jesus!
Abortions in England and Wales have reached record levels with the latest data revealing that around a quarter of all pregnancies were terminated. In the US, the St. Paul City Council’s unanimous approval of a resolution to recognise March 10 as “Abortion Providers Appreciation Day” in the city has been described as “indicative of the moral decline occurring in Minnesota and across our country.”
A UN “special expert on freedom of religion” says it’s time for the world’s leading religions to submit to the authority of the UN and its human rights bodies. Ahmed Shaheed contends that laws based on traditional morality, which are often religious, should be repealed if they conflict with the opinions of human rights scholars and UN experts.
In NZ, the Voice of Islam’s “Togetherness Tour” has been teaching people about Islam following the mosque attacks of March 15, 2019 when a lone gunman killed 51 people. We can only wonder what is being taught as multitudes of Christians, Jews and other minorities are killed or persecuted each year in the name of Islam by Muslims who follow their holy book, the Qur’an. After travelling through the country, the tour was due to end on March 15 in Christchurch.
The Somalia-based al-Qaeda-linked group al-Shabaab has “ordered” Christians to leave three counties in northeastern Kenya to allow local Muslims to get all local jobs, according to watchdog International Christian Concern.
In the UK, the Leicester University students’ union has faced heavy criticism for “renaming” International Women’s Day to include transsexuals. A newsletter to students said that the Union would use the word “womxn” because it was a more inclusive spelling of ‘women.’ Flags flown at two town halls in Merseyside to celebrate IWD were also branded “transphobic.” In Pakistan, Muslims disrupted an International Women’s Day rally, attacking rallygoers with stones and shoes.
In the UK, the first married lesbian bishop, Mary Glasspool, will lead an inclusive worship service to protest a global Anglican leadership event that has banned same-sex partners from attending. The Lambeth Conference, which takes place once every 10 years and is attended by some 1,000 bishops from 165 countries, will be held in Canterbury in the coming summer. For the past several years, there has been a growing divide in the global Anglican Communion over the issue of sexual ethics, especially homosexuality and same-sex marriage. The split is largely between increasingly theologically liberal churches in developed nations and growing theologically conservative churches in the developing world, especially the continent of Africa.
Be Very Alert! – By Val Hollard (NZ)
On Watch at the Door No 302, 26 March 2020
“Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him? (Luke 11:5-13)
As we rapidly approach the end of this age, be aware that a big falling away from the faith is coming (Matt 24:10) and we are already seeing the beginnings of it. In order to remain strong and unafraid, we must be sure that we are saved by the blood of Jesus and fully empowered by the Holy Spirit and see clearly His working in our lives. This will give as assurance and strength in the last days.
I am reading Warren Wiersbe’s book about past spiritual giants of the faith and one thing that comes up is the number of these giants who were good before being empowered by the Holy Spirit, but their ministries never really took off until they found that power.
One example is F. B. Meyer (1847-1929). To quote Wiersbe: “At one of the prayer meetings [held by Dwight L. Moody] Meyer heard Moody preach on the Holy Spirit. So convicted was the young pastor that he spent the next two days wrestling with God. He returned to the prayer meeting on Saturday and testified that God had met him and given victory. For two years he had preached without any special blessing. “I was just beating the air,” he confessed. But now he had experienced a new touch from God.” Meyer’s ministry blossomed from then on as he operated in the power of the Holy Spirit.
I once knew a chap who said he was supposed to be an evangelist but didn’t know what he was meant to be doing. If you are like him and ”just beating the air,” be like F. B. Meyer and others who have found direction and strength through wrestling with God for that promised gift.
The empowering by the Holy Spirit is for all believers, and if you have not received it, I suggest you follow Meyer and wrestle with God until you receive it. Not only will it help you to operate in your giftings, but having a real experience of God will strengthen you and help you to stay in the faith when you see others falling away. You will know fully the peace of God through these testing days and be able to draw on His strength.
The whole world is experiencing something never seen in our lifetime before. It seems surreal and there is much perplexity and panic. Here is what Isaiah says:
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isa 41:10)
The world has experienced pandemics before but there are a number of things that make this one different. This pandemic is taking place at the same time as other events prophesied for the end of this age are falling into place ready for the appearance of the Antichrist. There is a noticeable falling away from the faith and increase in apostasy, a massive increase in sexual immorality, increased persecution of Jews and Christians, an increase in violence, the majority of Jews are now back in Israel, and at the same time a big increase in the number of unprecedented events such as fires, floods, famines and earthquakes. To sum it up, everything is being prepared for the Antichrist and his rule. Remember that it is God who allows plagues to take place. Covid-19 will end in His timing after it has completed its job.
People are concentrating on health and the rapid spread of the virus, and some countries are now dishing out huge stimulus packages and financial help to keep the economy buoyant. This can’t last forever. Untold thousands are losing their jobs with resulting distress and panic. Many do not have the savings to keep them and their children going. Unlike earlier pandemics, we will probably never see things return to normal again. Nearly every country is affected.
Covid-19 may not result in a monstrous number of deaths but the financial outcome may be utterly disastrous. Are you prepared for this? The end is not yet, but it is certainly getting closer. A great shaking of the world financial system as never before is appearing before our eyes.
In the US, President Trump has called for a ‘big’ stimulus package, including $1,000 checks to every American. During the Great Recession, the federal government sent adults a $300 to $600 check. Economists concluded that it was one of the most effective measures deployed to blunt the impact.
In the US, Philadelphia police will not arrest for burglary or theft due to Covid-19.
Iranian officials are calling for the deliberate spread of the coronavirus to bring about the return of the Muslim Messiah, the Mahdi. A member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts, which has the power to appoint or dismiss the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has died from the COVID-19 virus.
In countries with good health care, the death rate is not as high as in Italy and China. Italy has a high death rate because it has a bad health system and there are not enough intensive care units. As with most countries, it was unexpected. Italy did not get the help it hoped for from the EU. Italy has an ageing population, one in four Italians is over 64. The danger was underestimated and many doctors were saying it was just a ‘bad flu.’ Italy apparently has a large Chinese community and many of them are from Wuhan and Wenzhou and had recently returned to their home towns for the Chinese New Year.
Dr. Stanton A. Glantz asserts that “among Chinese patients diagnosed with COVID-19 associated pneumonia, the odds of disease progression (including to death) were 14 times higher among people with a history of smoking compared to those who did not smoke. This was the strongest risk factor among those examined.”
The Chinese communist government continued its campaign against Christianity during the country’s Covid-19 outbreak by destroying crosses and demolishing a church while people were on lock-down.
LAW AND ORDER AND LOCK-DOWNS
Martial law is getting nearer. Many are in denial about the danger of Covid-19, especially young people who have been partying at beaches in Australia and America and ignoring social distancing.
In NZ, the Police Commissioner said Kiwis could expect to see a strong police presence on the street and it is likely there will also be some military presence. Police presence is already being seen at some supermarkets where there are rowdy shoppers and long queues. Police were called to a Napier supermarket after members of two gangs began fighting over the last bag of chicken. The Government is also looking at measures to enforce quarantine on people who do not cooperate. In the US, there have been reports of fights breaking out in wine and toilet paper aisles. Two of the supermarkets in NZ I go to have mountains of toilet paper!
Kiwis rushed to buy food, liquor, vegetable plants, DIY supplies and office desks and chairs to work from home before the lock-down. These aren’t the only sought after items. One Auckland gun shop found a long queue of people waiting when he came to open up in the morning. The number grew and the business owner called the police, concerned by the group and he was feeling unsafe. There is a concern that there will be an increase in alcohol consumption while people are stuck at home. Domestic violence may increase.
There has also been a big spike in sales of guns and ammunition in the US. Retailers say the gun buying frenzy is being fuelled by consumers who are worried that people are becoming so desperate and unpredictable that they need to ensure they can protect themselves.
In the US Donald Trump has announced that he has activated the National Guard in California, New York, and Washington State in order to combat Covid-19 spread. The administration emphasised that the deployment of guard members is not martial law. California police are to use Chinese-made DJI patrol drones with night-vision cameras during coronavirus citizen lock-down, to enforce the new rules.
Some governments such as Israel are using cellphone data to observe whether people were keeping distance from each other and staying at home. Will they stop tracking people when transmission of the virus has stopped? And of course, don’t forget the untold numbers of security cameras checking on people.
Now locked down but looking up!
NZ has legalised abortion, removing it from the Crimes Act. Women will now be able to access abortions from a health practitioner in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. (The report said ‘people’ not ‘women.’)
Russia’s Constitutional Court has approved constitutional amendments that could enable President Vladimir Putin to stay in power for another 16 years.
In Israel, the historically close-knit Messianic congregations are reportedly on the brink of a breakup because of controversy surrounding the teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation which has been promoted there by an influential apostolic network called Tikkun.
Fraud teacher Paula White is asking you to “sow a Psalm 91 seed” and send her $91 for her fake coronavirus hospital for the “spiritually sick.”
In Utah an earthquake has damaged the Mormon temple and dislodged the trumpet from the iconic angel Moroni atop its highest spire. The temple is the spiritual focal point for the 16 million members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
In the US, the Episcopal Bishop of Albany, William Love, has been accused of violating canon law by showing “unwillingness to abide by Resolution B012” – which stipulates that bishops must permit same-sex weddings to take place in their diocese.
A Finnish Member of Parliament is under investigation for expressing the biblical view of sexuality in a series of television interviews, police charging her with “hate speech” in a case that civil liberties groups are seeing as a harbinger of ill-fortune for free speech.
The state of New York is now permitting minors who self-identify as something other than their biological sex to alter their birth certificates.
A Nigerian civil society organisation claims that no fewer than 350 Christians have been killed across the West African country since the start of 2020 and estimates that about 11,500 Christians have been killed since 2015.
Pope Francis has told Covid-19 quarantined Catholics that they don’t really need a priest and can confess their sins to God directly – just like Protestants!
We don’t know how long this tribulation will last and how bad it will be. Use your time in isolation wisely with prayer and Bible study. If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, now is the time before it is too late.
“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.” (Isaiah 26:3)
