_The Crossroads of Forever
What's New
Commentary

Categories: Bible Salvation

My unsaved friend, God loves you and wants to bless you. He wants to make you His child. He wants to take you to live with Him in heaven forever. He wants to make you the object of His infinite, divine love. The Bible says,”…in His presence is fullness of joy and at His right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

But God has a problem with you! Your sins have separated you from God, both now and forever. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).  “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:2).

Unless you invite Christ to cleanse you from your sin you will spend eternity in torments in the lake of fire forever. “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:14). This is a hard message, but we share it because we care about you.

The good news is that God in Christ came into this world. He lived a perfect sinless life that qualified Him to die a substitutionary, saving death for you on the cross.  He shed His blood, dying in your place. “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit” (1Peter 3:18).

If you turn to God in repentance and faith, He will accept Christ’s sacrifice for your sin and give you the righteousness of Christ and eternal life. “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).

Unsaved friend, you are standing at the crossroads of forever. You will be forever in the lake of fire, or forever the object of God’s blessing. Do not go to the place that burns with fire and brimstone and to be there forever and ever, having no hope of ever escaping.

Understand that the love, mercy and helping grace of God is infinite, as high as the heavens. The hatred of God for sin is also limitless, as deep as the bottomless pit. God has no choice but to judge sin. If God was to allow one sinner into heaven, heaven would be destroyed in the same way sinful Adam destroyed the present world. Sin always destroys and God must judge it and put it away from His presence forever.

Choose your forever! Fall on your knees and ask God to save you.

The Netanyahu Era's Last Chapter Begins
What's New
Commentary

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu greeted his supporters at Likud Party campaign headquarters on Tuesday evening, his demeanor as much as his words made the outcome of the vote clear to everyone. While he neither claimed victory nor conceded defeat, his body language screamed that he knew that he had not won. 

His talk of working for the creation of a "Zionist" government rather than the "right-wing" coalition that he pledged to build in April when he thought he had triumphed was telling. There will be no Likud-led coalition of the party's natural partners on the right and among the religious parties. And that means the last chapter of the Netanyahu era is about to unfold.

Despite the celebratory air in the Israeli media that is dominated by his foes, the prime minister isn't finished. If he can keep his party united behind him--no mean feat given the predatory ambitions of those who hope to succeed him--the outcome of the coming weeks of coalition negotiations is far from certain. 

If the Joint List of anti-Zionist Arab parties breaks with precedent and recommends to President Reuven Rivlin that Blue and White leader Benny Gantz should be given a chance to build a coalition, it could set in motion a series of events that will mean a new prime minister.

The vote was not a straightforward victory for Gantz. The combined total of seats won by Blue and White and its smaller partners on the left is actually smaller than that of the right-wing religious bloc that are pledged to support Netanyahu. And when figuring in that Avigdor Lieberman's Yisrael Beiteinu Party is, despite Netanyahu's claims that it is "left-wing," clearly on the right in terms of its stands on security and economic issues, it's possible to assert that the right still commands the support of the majority of Israelis.

Yet it's also clear that a majority of Israelis were not worried about the prospect of the post-Netanyahu era. In this election, the old categories of "right" and "left" didn't determine the outcome. 

The consensus on the conflict with the Palestinians, in addition to how to deal with the threat from Iran and Hezbollah, credited to Netanyahu that he built over time is so strong that it actually undermined his chances of continuing in office. 

This time around, Israelis were more focused on the conflict between secular and religious values, as well as the notion of whether or not it was time for a change at the top. In a very real sense, Netanyahu was undone by his own success.

By any objective standard, Netanyahu's last decade in power has been one of remarkable success for Israel.

His stewardship of the economy has enabled a period of tremendous growth and prosperity. Israel's military dominance of the region is unchallenged. Just as important, Netanyahu was responsible for breaking down Israel's diplomatic isolation in ways that would have been unimaginable a generation ago. 

He built an international coalition against Iran that has made allies out of formerly hostile Arab nations like Saudi Arabia, and is making steady inroads in diplomacy among once-hostile Persian Gulf and African nations. 

The relationships he has forged with President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi have created a singular moment in which it could be asserted that it was Israel's foes that were marginalized on the international scene, rather than the perennially isolated Jewish state.

Netanyahu's ability to maintain Israel's security without blundering into wars whose unintended consequences might be disastrous would also be invaluable in navigating the country through the coming years, during which tensions with Tehran and Gaza will continue to produce dangerous challenges.

His problem was that it wasn't possible to castigate his main opponent as a creature of the left that was discredited by the bloody failure of Oslo. Military experience has never been a decisive political advantage in a country in which most voters have themselves served in the army. 

But the notion that the chorus line of former chiefs of staff of the Israel Defense Forces could be dismissed as starry-eyed leftists was not a winning election strategy. 

That's especially true since Gantz, and the Blue and White, spent both of the 2019 election campaigns trying to portray themselves as even tougher than Netanyahu on security issues, and just as willing to assert Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and the West Bank settlement blocs. Rather than challenging the consensus on the peace process that Netanyahu had forged, Blue and White was an expression of it.

Lieberman's refusal to join any government with the ultra-Orthodox parties, and to demand a unity government between Likud and Blue and White--a tactic that nearly doubled his total of seats in the latest vote--also demonstrated that some voters who consider themselves right-wing on security were more interested in opposing the haredim and ending Netanyahu's reign.

In the wake of this setback and with a hearing scheduled next month on the corruption charges hanging over him, Netanyahu may be hard-pressed to maintain control of the Likud, let alone the right-religious bloc. If Lieberman sticks to his demand for unity, and if Blue and White continues to refuse to join forces with a Likud led by Netanyahu, then it's hard to see how the prime minister survives.

Even if Netanyahu's unrivaled political skills enable him to outmaneuver his would-be successors within the Likud and temporarily block Gantz from building a Knesset majority, the idea that he can somehow snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and stay in office seems more like a delusion than a realistic scenario.

Netanyahu's moment on the Israeli political stage isn't quite over. But its last chapter has surely begun.

US-Russia nuclear war would kill 34 million people within hours and is increasingly likely, Princeton study concludes
More than 90 million people would be killed or injured in a nuclear war between the US and Russia if a conventional conflict went too far, according to a new simulation created by researchers. Such a scenario has become “dramatically” more plausible in the last two years because the two countries have dropped support for arms-control measures, according to a team from Princeton University.

EPA to Block California From Setting Emissions Standards
California has repeatedly been granted Clean Air Act waivers to set its own rules; the administration plans to find that the EPA was wrong to grant those waivers. California saw this coming, and has negotiated voluntary standards with four major automakers. The Justice Department has launched an antitrust investigation of that deal,

Are Russia And China Headed For A Military Alliance? Some Experts Think So
Yesterday was the first day of a massive Russian-led military exercise. Nearly 130,000 troops from seven nations joined their Russian counterparts for Center 2019, a week-long series of war games on Russia’s southern border. Although China is far the from the only foreign participant in Center 2019, it is by the far the biggest. Beijing sent 1,600 soldiers, 300 pieces of military equipment, and 30 fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters to participate in this year’s drills. Over the past decade, Russia and China have considerably strengthened their military ties amid worsening relations with the United States.

California’s Travel Bans Are the Lamest Virtue-Signaling Tactic Yet
The Golden State is grappling with skyrocketing homelessness rates, net negative migration, nation-leading poverty rates, and an outbreak of disease that hearkens back to the Dark Ages. It’s the perfect storm of ugly circumstances that cry out for bold leadership. But rather than tackle these problems, state leaders are shifting the focus to other states who apparently deserve a moral lecture from California: The state has now added Iowa to its “travel ban” list. According to Fox News, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that as of Oct. 4, “California will no longer offer taxpayer-funded trips to Iowa for any public employee or student at a state-run university.” Why? Because the state will no longer spend Medicaid dollars on gender transition surgeries, thanks to a newly passed Iowa law.

Rivlin pushes for speedy coalition moves, aims to avoid third election
As exit polls indicate no clear winner, president says he will meet with party leaders once he ‘receives clear picture of results, and as soon as possible’; vows to act ‘in full coordination with the chairman of the Central Elections Committee’.

Supremes applauded for 7-2 thumping of activist judge
An immigration watchdog was pleased to witness the U.S. Supreme Court slap down a federal judge who appears to be fighting the Trump administration’s immigration policies rather than ruling on them. The high court handed President Donald Trump another legal victory by allowing nationwide enforcement of a new rule that prevents most Central American immigrants from seeking asylum in the United States. By a 7-2 vote, the justices’ order temporarily undoes a lower-court ruling that had blocked the new asylum policy in some states along the southern border.

Russian volcano eruption has caused rare purple sunsets all over the world
Volcanic eruptions can often be devastating to nearby regions, but a remote volcano in Russia is responsible for some beautiful sunsets, according to researchers. “It makes you realize that you don’t have to put a whole lot of aerosols into the stratosphere to change its composition,” Kalnajs said in a statement. “This was a relatively small volcanic eruption, but it was enough to impact most of the northern hemisphere.”

Ex-Trump Campaign Manager Lewandowski Kicks Off Impeachment Probe Hearing with a Bang
“Since Election Day, whether it was bad actors at the FBI and in the intelligence community, or lies coming from the current House majority that there was evidence of collusion, the American people continue to be told a false narrative, with the purpose of undermining the legitimacy of the 2016 election results,” said Lewandowski, a potential Senate candidate in New Hampshire next near. “This country as spent over three years and 40 million taxpayer dollars on this investigation and it’s now clear the investigation was populated by many Trump haters who had their own agenda: To take down a duly elected president of the United States.”

Texas Attorney General: Beto’s Gun Confiscation Plan ‘Doesn’t Play Well’ Here
“I don’t think most Texans want to give up their guns,” Paxton said. “It’s certainly a comment that I think most Texans would not react well to and haven’t reacted well to,” Paxton said. “Maybe it plays nationally in states he’s trying to win, but it certainly doesn’t play well in Texas.” “The reality is taking away guns from law-abiding citizens is not going to stop crazy people from using weapons to kill people,”

Unofficial results in Israel’s second election in five months suggest it is too close to call, Israeli media say. Incumbent PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s party and that of his main challenger, Benny Gantz, are neck and neck with 32 seats each, the Kan public broadcaster says. A prime minister needs to command a 61-seat majority in parliament. The smaller Yisrael Beiteinu party appears to hold the balance of power.

The rest of the Satanic world wants us dead.

BOMBSHELL: Global geoengineering (chemtrails) experiment pushed by Bill Gates also funded by Nazi-linked Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, linked to eugenics and depopulation
The mainstream media is now openly pushing geoengineering and chemtrails as a solution for so-called “global warming,” which is of course a complete hoax to begin with.
