TOKYO (AP) — Japan has deployed PAC-3 missile batteries in the heart of Tokyo to shoot down any incoming rocket debris. South Korea is reportedly mobilizing two Aegis-equipped destroyers. The U.S. is already gunning to punish Pyongyang for what it says will be a ballistic missile test in the guise of a space launch. Whatever lifts off from North Korea's western coast space center this month, one thing is certain — since rockets and missiles inevitably have overlapping technologies, it will run afoul of U.N. resolutions that have been in place for years to bar North Korea from testing any technology that could be used to develop long-range ballistic missiles.

The patriarch of Russia's Orthodox Church will take part in an historic first meeting with the Roman Catholic pontiff on Feb. 12 because of the need for a joint response to the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, the Orthodox Church said. Senior Orthodox cleric Metropolitan Hilarion said that long-standing differences between the two churches remain, most notably a row over the status of the Uniate Church, in Ukraine. "The situation shaping up today in the Middle East, in North and Central Africa, and in some other regions where extremists are carrying out a genuine genocide of the Christian population, demands urgent measures and an even closer cooperation between the Christian churches," Hilarion said.

Rights activists say that's an abuse of authority, and strongly oppose a new government effort to permanently expand police powers. (AP Photo/Nadine Achoui-Lesage)PARIS (AP) — French police have rounded up hundreds of suspects and searched more than 3,000 homes under a state of emergency since the November extremist attacks on Paris — but much of the action involves drug cases or similar crime, not terrorism.

Death of Discernment Intro - Ron Matsen

In this segment, Ron Matsen discusses signs of the end times. This segment comes from the "Death of Deiscernment" briefing pack published by Koinon...

Of all the end-time themes discussed in the Bible—such as global disasters (Mt 24), the rise of the global super-state, the identity of the Antichrist, the mark of the beast, and the Magog invasion (Ezek 38-39)—“deception and apostasy in the church” is listed more times than any other end-time “sign of the times.”

Are we currently living in the Age of Apostasy? Ron Matsen explores the evidence and causes of apostasy and provides an antidote for apostasy in this timely study

Indicators of Decline
• Church Attendance: Church attendance in Eng­land as a percentage of the population (both Protestant and Catholics are included in these figures):
1970 13.3%
1980 11.1%
1990 9.4%
2000 7.2%
2010 5.3%
• Decline in Biblical Literacy: In England, The Portsmouth News, 13 April 2001, asked 50 members of church clergy about their congregation’s beliefs: 48% “Did not believe in the physical resurrection of Jesus” and 60% “believed that the spirit of Easter had been lost in favour of bunnies and Easter eggs.”
Cause for this Decline?
We will examine three causes—all three have an ex­ample in the history of Israel.
For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.
Romans 15:4

Unconditional Covenants - Chuck MIssler







"I know thy works, and tribulation and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan."
The most wealthy bloodline in the world bar none and the leader of the Ashkenazi Jews in the world today is the Rothschild family.  As you will see in the timeline, the Rothschilds have obtained this position through lies, manipulation and murder.  Their bloodline also extends into the Royal Families of Europe, and the following family names:  Astor; Bundy; Collins; duPont; Freeman; Kennedy; Morgan; Oppenheimer; Rockefeller; Sassoon; Schiff; Taft; and Van Duyn.
