Hamas Calls for Escalation of Violence in Jeruslaem

In a statement posted on its official website on Thursday, Hamas called for an escalation of violence in Jerusalem.

"Hamas calls on the Palestinian population to escalate clashes with the occupation wherever they  may be, confirming their adherence to the option of resistance by all means and tools until the liberation of the land and people from the Israeli occupation,"  said Hamas's statement on their website.

In a  press conference earlier on Thursday,  Mushir al-Masri, a senior Hamas spokesperson, said of the terror attack in Jerusalem on Wednesday that killed a three-month-old girl,  “The attack in Jerusalem is an act of heroism and a natural response to the crimes of the occupation against our people and our holy places.”

Arrest Ministers Who Refuse to Perform Same-Sex Weddings?

Christian persecution is alive and well in America these days. More and more laws are being passed that make true Christianity a crime.

Preaching the Bible and living by how the Word of God instructs us to live can now get a Christian fined, jailed and run out of business.

Military chaplains have been instructed to perform same-sex marriages and unions or face the disciplinary action up to and including being court martialed. They have had to make their off-site church facilities available for same-sex weddings or face the same disciplinary action.

Christian business owners are being sued for not wanting to be part of same-sex weddings and unions. They are being fined and threatened with jail if they don’t comply. Some Christian business owners have opted to shut their businesses down rather than compromise their faith.

One of the latest cases of Christian persecution is taking place in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Donald and Evelyn Knapp are ordained ministers who operate the Hitching Post Lakeside Wedding Chapel. Even though they are ministers, the chapel is a for-profit business which according to local officials means that they have to abide by recently passed non-discrimination ordinances.

In New York, Cynthia and Robert Gifford were ordered to by a liberal judge to hold same-sex weddings in the downstairs floor of their house. The Giffords host parties, weddings and receptions in the large downstairs portion of their three story farmhouse. After a lesbian couple, who knew that the Giffords were Christians, recorded their phone conversation with them, a lawsuit was filed. The lesbian couple intentionally targeted and trapped the Giffords, just like the case that happened with the Knapps and their small wedding chapel.

If you didn’t think that you would ever see the persecution of Christians here in the United States, consider what’s going on. They are being persecuted by the gays, by the courts, by the military and our federal government. The IRS and DHS are targeting Christians because of their beliefs, conservative and patriotic values.

Mid-East Prophecy Update – October 19th, 2014

Pastor J.D. brings to the forefront that which has in large measure been eclipsed by the “Ebola scare.” Namely, that of what’s now happening both to Israel, and against Israel.

Rev. Billy Graham: ‘America is Just as Wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah Ever Were’

Reverend Billy Graham, arguably the most well-known and respected evangelical preacher of the last 50 years, said in a recently published commentary that America was “founded by men who believed in prayer” and that prayer can turn “the tide of history,” adding that while “America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah” and deserves “the judgment of God,” this judgment can be lessened through prayer.

“Even though America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah ever were, and as deserving of the judgment of God, God would spare us if we were earnestly praying, with hearts that had been cleansed and washed by the blood of Christ,” said Rev. Graham in his commentary for Decision magazine, published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

“The problems of the world will never be settled unless our national leaders go to God in prayer,” he said.

“If only they would discover the power and wisdom that there is in reliance upon God, we could soon see the solution to the grave problems that face the world!”
