Brethren! Do NOT be duped by what is happening with Kim Jong-un and his plans for “Peace” with South Korea and with the world! This is simply a diversionary tactic to take the world’s eyes off Iran and onto Jong-un!
We are close to all out WAR! We have never been closer to the Ezekiel 38-39 war. Please read my latest article on N. Korea and its ‘hitleresque’ leader Kim Jong-un:
I am certainly conflicted about the upcoming meeting between the brutal dictator Kim Jong-un and the leadership of South Korea. I wrote an article recently in which I spoke about the collapse of North Korea’s Nuclear facility.
I say I am conflicted because I would love to think that there has been a turning within the dictator’s heart. But I am discerning that this new face of Kim Jong-un is a facade. Our son lives and works in Seoul, South Korea. He tells me that the people of South Korea pay no attention to Jong-un. Through the years they say he has made a lot of bluster but nothing to back it up.
Perhaps it was nothing but bluster from the father of Kim Jong-un, but I see something different in this man. I see a “Hitler” when I watch his speeches. I see a ruthless murderous dictator, whom I am afraid is now fooling not just his people – but perhaps the whole world.
So that you will understand why I have these foreboding feelings about this man, please make time and watch this documentary in its entirety.
In my article about the collapse of the North Korean Nuclear facility – credible news sites reported that radiation is pouring out of the top of the mountain where the collapse took place. But there has been nothing told to the people of North Korea about this. They are in imminent danger of radiation poisoning. I also fear for my son in South Korea, that this radiation may affect South Korea as well.
North Korean defector describes ‘life of hell’ for Christians
Choi Kwanghyuk was able to free himself from the clutches of a brutal dictatorship in his native North Korea. Like many others in the Hermit Kingdom, he was targeted and persecuted by the government for his Christian faith.
North Korean Choi Kwanghyuk is one of the lucky ones.
The 55-year-old managed to escape from the work camp where he was sent after being targeted and persecuted by the government for his Christian faith.
“We couldn’t raise our voice during a service, we couldn’t sing out loud during a worship … that was hard,” Choi told Fox News through a translator. “Also, we had to hide so that other people could not see us.”
Despite having to hide his faith in plain sight while living in North Hamgyong province, Choi was still compelled to bring religion to others when he started an underground church.
“There were about nine people,” he said. “I couldn’t do mission work because we had to keep it secret that we had a church.”
“If that information had leaked, we could have faced the death penalty.”
North Korea is officially an atheist state where – except for a “show church” in Pyongyang that tourists are shown — public worship is forbidden. The country is ranked the most oppressive place for Christians in the world and has had that ignominious status for years, according to Open Doors USA.
“[Choi’s] statements describing oppression, as well as his report of imprisonment for owning a Bible or practicing faith, align with everything we know about North Korea,” Open Doors President David Curry told Fox News. “Rated the worst place for the persecution of Christians, North Korea treats Christians horrendously and registers them as ‘enemies of the state’ for their faith.”
The totalitarian state forces the estimated 300,000 Christians living there to hide their religious beliefs and fellowship among each other.
“In a nation where the ruling regime demands total control over the general public, anything that challenges the government’s power is seen as a threat, including religion,” Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern, told Fox News. “As a result, the North Korean government does everything in its power to squash the spread of Christianity.”
This leads much of the religious population in North Korea to go underground with their worship, much like Choi and his church were forced to do.
“We had only one Bible,” he said. “North Hamgyong province is very cold. In the winter, we would dig a big hole and store kimchi there. We sometimes had services there. In the summer, we had services in the mountain or by the river.”
“I never heard the term ‘underground church’ until I got here [to the U.S.].”
In 2008, North Korean authorities caught up to Choi and arrested him. He was held in prison by the state security department where he says he was interrogated about his faith.
“I was tortured there,” he said. “I kept denying it.”
He said that he was about to be sent to one of North Korea’s brutal labor camps when he was able to break free.
“I decided to escape because I thought that once they sent me to the other camp, they could eventually send me to the concentration camp or kill me,” Choi recalled. “I was traveling back and forth between China and North Korea, but they kept searching for me, and I knew it could put my friends in danger too, so I left.”
The North Korean gulag system is notorious for harsh conditions and brutal treatment of its prisoners.
Choi feared being sent to the most notorious camp within the system — Camp 22.
Also known as Hoeryong concentration camp, and part of a large system of prison camps throughout the Communist dictatorship, Camp 22 is an 87-square-mile penal colony located in North Hamgyong province where most of the prisoners are people accused of criticizing the government.
Inmates, most of whom are serving life sentences, face harsh and often lethal conditions. According to the testimony of a former guard from Camp 22, prisoners live in bunkhouses with 100 people per room and some 30 percent show the markings of torture and beatings — torn ears, gouged eyes and faces covered with scars.
“Unfortunately, it is inexplicably easy to wind up in one of these camps. While someone can be sent to one of these camps for openly evangelizing, someone can just as easily be sent there for simply being in contact with a religious person,” said King of the International Christian Concern.
Prisoners are forced to stand on their toes in tanks filled with water up to their noses for 24 hours, stripped and hanged upside-down while being beaten or given the infamous “pigeon torture” — where both hands are chained to a wall at a height of 2 feet, forcing them to crouch for hours at a time.
Tiny rations of watery corn porridge leave inmates on the brink of starvation, and many hunt rats, snakes and frogs for protein. Some even take the drastic measure of searching through animal dung for undigested seeds to eat. Beatings are handed out daily for offenses as simple as not bowing down in respect to the guards fast enough. Prisoners are used as practice targets during martial arts training. Guards routinely rape female inmates.
Choi said he finally escaped to neighboring China. While he was figuring out where to go next, he had heard how the general image of North Korean defectors was not positive among those in South Korea.
“So, I applied for asylum in the U.S.,” he told Fox News.
Choi, who was single when he lived in North Korea, was granted asylum in the U.S. in 2013. He first lived in Dallas before eventually moving to Los Angeles where he now lives.
Choi said that as a result of injuries he received while being tortured, he is unable to work but has committed himself to telling the world about the human rights abuses in his native land.
“First of all, every human must have the right to freedom,” he said. “There is no freedom in North Korea. By law, they have the freedom of religion and the freedom of the press, but the reality is very different.”
And despite the hardships he may face, Choi said that life in the U.S. is a vast improvement.
“There is an enormous difference between my life in North Korea and my life in the U.S,” he said.
“The life in North Korea is hell … life in America is heaven.” –source
Brethren, please pray for the people of North Korea and South Korea. Pray for Kim Jong-un, for our Lord is capable of doing anything. Nothing is too difficult for Him.
Pray that the South Korean president will not be duped by Jong-un if he is not sincere.
Pray for discernment. Pray that God’s will be done.

Many of my readers know that I have been banned and placed in FB jail numerous times. My articles have also been marked as “spam” by FB. I speak Truth from God’s Word and I clearly speak of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Zuckerberg and his crew do NOT like writers of Truth. They believe that truth is relative. Jesus Christ is THE Truth.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6)
Truth is not relative. Truth is absolute and it is truth for every person. The secular world and apostate churches will tell you that what is true for one person, may not be true for another.
When people who believe this rubbish stand before our Holy God at the Great White Throne Judgment – those who tell God that they didn’t believe that Truth was absolute, and that they did not trust the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins, will be judged and thrown into the Lake of Fire.
Yesterday, I read an article on CBN that completely blew me away. The article is about FB and how Mark Zuckerberg is connecting with the “church” on FB to become partners. Yes, you read that correctly. The sad part is that this article on CBN was written as if this partnership was made in heaven!
I’ll tell you right now that God had NO part in this – NONE. What is spoken of in this article; and the “megachurch” who is being used as the example of how utterly wonderful this alliance really is – this church is “Social Gospel” all the way! I am not saying that there are not born again believers in this church. God knows who belongs to Him. I am saying that the leadership is Social Gospel.
TD Jakes loves this church. That speaks volumes to me – and should to you!
Here is the article. I left a message for the CBN journalist who wrote this to call me. I really want to know what he believes.
Strange Bedfellows? Why Facebook Is Teaming Up with Churches to Build Community
NASHVILLE, TN – On a recent April Sunday morning, crowds streamed into the grand lobby of Mt. Zion Baptist Church as they faithfully do every weekend. What was unusual about this particular service was who was there to greet them.
Smiling faces offered bright, warm “hellos,” inviting them to visit laptop stations designed to teach people how to better engage with other members through the church’s social media. But the friendly greeters weren’t church staff or volunteers. They were a professional team sent by Facebook.
The Church’s Biggest Challenge
CBN News was invited to attend a weekend launch highlighting a months-long partnership between Facebook and Mt. Zion Baptist – a 30,000 member megachurchwith five weekend services at three different locations across Nashville.
“The biggest challenge of the church is getting people connected,” Bishop Joseph W. Walker III, senior pastor of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, explained. “Often, people see a church and don’t know where to connect.”
That’s part of what drives the ministry’s social media outreach, along with a heavy millennial demographic with eight nearby universities. It’s also why the church teamed up with the social network to build off of its public page and launch a Facebook Group.
“People are becoming more and more isolated, but I think today was evidence that when you bring people together for the shared purpose and vision of community of faith … there’s tremendous energy there,” explained Nona Jones, who works for Facebook as the manager of faith-based partnerships.
Mt. Zion Baptist – locally known as “the social media church” – came into Facebook’s orbit when other pastors informed Jones about Bishop Walker’s mission and his work with young people.
Jones, who has been on the job for nine months, is no stranger to communities of faith. She married a pastor and has been involved in ministry work for 18 years.
“I’ve preached around the country and around the world, and what’s interesting is I wasn’t asked to join [Facebook] in spite of that. I was asked to join the company because of that,” Jones said.
Jones pushed back on the charges of bias, insisting that her work with faith groups isn’t new.
“Facebook is committed to communities of faith,” she declared. “We work with leaders of influential churches around the world to help us better understand what are the products and tools that are needed to build community on our platform.”
So, what’s the genesis of this directional change?
Last summer, as the social media network reached 2 billion users worldwide, founder Mark Zuckerberg signaled a shift from simply connecting people to creating meaningful communities, noting how regular churchgoers are inspired by their pastors to volunteer or donate money to charitable causes.
Other Churches Joining the Social Media Universe
Zuckerberg’s illustration of how churches bring people closer together isn’t just an analogy to promote the idea of community. CBN News has learned Facebook is working directly with churches and other faith-based groups to help them build their own communities on the social media platform.
The more familiar ministries include Life.Church, Elevation Church, and The Potter’s House. CBN News contacted all three ministries to confirm their relationship with Facebook.
“We really want to understand communities of faith and make sure the people that are working on this work understand them as well,” Jones added, disclosing that her team also works closely Jewish and Muslim leaders among other groups.
Bishop Walker’s vision for the church revolves around the theme of “Connect, Commit, and Change.” Yet, his mission extends beyond creating meaningful, active community – both traditionally and online.
Ministering To Future Computer Programmers
He also wants to encourage young members of his church to consider studying computer science. That desire sparked another partnership with Facebook called TechPrep, where more than 50 kids traded their Saturday morning in exchange for learning about computer programming directly from one of the world’s leading high-tech companies.
“Folks can be really scared of computer science,” explained Maya Carter, who manages programs for Facebook’s education partnerships. “Computer sciences can be in fashion, in music, in sports – it’s all over the place. And that first introduction will really push kids through the challenging coursework they might have to do down the line.”
Walker believes his ministry can send future programmers into the industry, much like missionaries, to help build technologies churches can use to evangelize as well as diversify the high-tech workforce.
“It’s good knowing that the church was able to promote it and get us here,” Leonard Shelton, a 17-year-old who attends Mt. Zion, said.
“I’m actually very glad that I did come,” 16-year-old James Shaw offered. “I found out a lot here.”
Walker understands not everyone will agree with his approach and anticipates opposition just like Facebook’s recent criticism on Capitol Hill – ranging from privacy, to charges of being a monopoly to censorship. Walker believes he’s following Jesus’ teaching using 21st century tools.
“He called us to go into the whole world. The command was go, right?” Walker pressed. “Facebook has given us a platform. They’ve come alongside the faith community and said, ‘Listen, what you’re doing matters.'”
Supporters call it “digital discipleship” – a way to connect people beyond simply streaming videos and liking pictures and posts.
Walker believes allowing users who like Mt. Zion’s Facebook page to engage directly with one another will further his goal of helping people grow in their faith – and in community.– source
Brethren, can you see that this is exactly the kind of thing that Antichrist will do? This “Social Gospel” will be used by the devil to bring about the One World Religion.
Where is Jesus Christ in all of this? He is pushed aside as to avoid offending anyone.
Pray for the blinded pseudo-church in America and in the world! We who believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ are truly a small remnant. It is up to us to pray and to share the true Gospel so that people are saved!
