An intruder fired shots as he entered an Alabama residence earlier this week — and fired more shots as he kicked in a bedroom door, law enforcement officials told the NorthWest Alabamian.
But a man inside the bedroom also had a gun and shot the intruder dead, authorities added to the paper.
What are the details?
The Sheriff’s Office of Winston County said the home invasion took place Tuesday off County Road 21 in the Poplar Springs area, which is about an hour northwest of Birmingham, and two men were part of it.
Jason Wayne Smith, 40, of Jasper was the first to approach the residence, and he used a gun to hit a male on the porch in the eye, sheriff’s officials told the paper, after which Smith entered the home while firing the gun.
Another male was inside a bedroom with his girlfriend, and he armed himself, authorities told the paper.
When Smith kicked his way into the bedroom door and began shooting again, the male inside the bedroom fired five shots, three of which struck Smith, who fell backward into the hallway area, authorities added to the paper.
A second intruder — Donald Webb Jr., 27, of Jasper — approached the residence behind Smith, picked up the male Smith hit with the gun, and forced him into the house, authorities told the paper.
When Webb — who was not believed to be armed — saw Smith lying on the floor, Webb fled the residence and left the scene in a vehicle, authorities told the paper.
What happened next?
Authorities found Smith dead, the paper said.
The Sheriff’s Office of Winston County noted that with the help of the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, leads were followed, and they were able to find the second suspect.
Webb was charged with first-degree robbery taken to the Winston County Jail, the paper said, adding that other charges may be brought against him. After posting a $30,000 bond, Webb was released, authorities told the paper.
The Sheriff’s Office of Winston County said the resident who shot and killed the intruder has not been charged. SOURCE
So the resident was not charged – very surprising but just as it should be.
Unable to get reliable information from the CCP controlled press, millions of Chinese turned to her coverage for a realistic view of what was happening, something the CCP could not allow.
The CCP has done everything they can to silence her, including banning her books.
Fang lives in virtual isolation now, under constant scrutiny by the government.
“I am not permitted to participate in any social activities, I am not permitted to publish any essays, have any of my new work published, or my old work reprinted,” she said in an interview with the Sunday Times of London this week. “For a professional writer like myself, this is the greatest punishment they could hand out.”
In the interview, conducted by email, Fang called the government’s treatment of her a form of “cold violence.”
“All of these repercussions I am facing are simply because I recorded my experiences during the lockdown in Wuhan and published a book entitled ‘Wuhan Diary,’” she said. “I did not break a single law or violate a single rule. The whole thing is extremely bizarre and utterly unimaginable.”
Fang said she began writing her daily chronicles at the suggestion of an editor at a Chinese literary journal. “That gave me the impetus to start recording things, I began to post a record of what was happening,” she said. “The diary seemed to provide consolation for many readers.”
Fang received numerous death threats, which increased when Michael Berry, the director of the University of California’s Center for Chinese Studies, began to translate her posts into English under the title “Wuhan Diary: Dispatches from a Quarantined City.”
Now, her phone is tapped and she is subject to surveillance when she leaves her home, Fang told the Times of London.
Concerning peace in the Middle East: on Dec. 8, 2022, several high-level officials met at the First Annual Abraham Accords Global Leadership Summit in Rome.
Danny Danon, Israel’s former ambassador to the UN, said:
“I expect we’ll see an agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia this year (in 2023).”
After Benjamin Netanyahu is sworn in as Israel’s new Prime Min., his government’s “first priority will be to increase signatories to the Abraham Accords.”
“It’s just a matter of time before courageous leaders step out of the shadows and full peace is achieved between all the children of Abraham.”
Imam Mohammad Tawhidi, vice-pres. of The Global Imams Council, told the Jerusalem Post he believes Danon’s assessment about Saudi Arabia is correct.
Summit officials signed a document called the Abraham Values Pledge, which is an agreement to adhere to: tolerance, coexistence and diversity; religion and family; and economic peace.
I am not saying the Abraham Accords will be the covenant of peace that will be confirmed by the Antichrist and mark the beginning of the Tribulation Period, but the Accords are a major step in that direction, and a worthless covenant of peace is just a matter of time. (Despite the Abraham Accords, there are many problems, and there are prophesied wars that still must be fulfilled.)
Nevertheless, history is nearing:
The end of 6,000 years (6 God-days) since the creation of Adam (II Pet. 3:8).
The toes on the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream (Dan. 2).
The end of a generation since Israel became a nation in 1948 (Matt. 24:34).
The end of 2,000 years (2 God-days) since the beginning of the Church Age.
And all of the signs are beginning to come to pass now (Luke 21:28).
Here are more reasons to believe that a worthless covenant of peace is just a matter of time.
One, concerning Saudi Arabia joining the Abraham Accords: on Dec. 8, 2022, it was reported that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has given the U.S. three conditions for normalizing ties with Israel:
The U.S. must affirm its alliance with Saudi Arabia.
The U.S. must supply weapons to Saudi Arabia as though it is a member of the NATO alliance.
The U.S. must allow Saudi Arabia to use its uranium reserves to develop a restricted civil nuclear program.
Concerning the Crown Prince’s requirements: in the past, Saudi Arabia has said it would not join the Abraham Accords until the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is settled.
Some commentators say it looks like the Crown Prince has dropped that requirement.
A Saudi official recently said Saudi Arabia is looking to normalize relations with Israel, “but it will take more time.”
Two, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: in the latter years and latter days, Russia, Iran, and Turkey will join forces, move through Syria, and attack Israel.
On Dec. 9, 2022, it was reported that the relationship between Russia and Iran has reached an “unprecedented level.”
Russia needs weapons (especially drones) for its war in Ukraine, and Iran needs modern weapons (fighter jets, helicopters, air defense systems), technical support, and training to produce and use more advanced weapons.
The two nations are growing closer together by the day, and the U.S. is saying Russia and Iran are becoming “a full-fledged defense partnership.”
An interesting aspect about this is that God told Gog to be a guard unto her allies in the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38:7).
(More: Turkey’s Pres. Erdogan recently said he is determined to launch a land operation at Turkey’s convenience to take more territory from the Kurds in northern Syria.)
(More: No weapon that is formed against Israel shall prosper; Isa. 54:17.)
Three, concerning corruption in the White House, Dept. of Justice, and FBI: Bill Wilson (Senior Analyst for Koenig World Watch Daily) recently wrote, “FBI agent Elvis Chan, in deposition, revealed that the FBI ordered Twitter to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, and [current] Twitter owner Elon Musk said Twitter was also ordered by the Biden presidential campaign to censor the story.”
Let’s not forget that 51 intel agents (including at least two from the Obama administration, former CIA Directors James Clapper and John Brennan) signed a letter that said the Hunter Laptop information was wrong (Russian disinformation).
These intel agents put their signatures on a false document, sent it out, and they are the ones that Twitter should have censored.
(My opinion: The shadow government illegally ordered Twitter to censor free speech in the U.S. to cover for the Biden crime cartel because Joe supports the New World Order and is willing to surrender America’s sovereignty to a world government. With the shadow government working to destroy the sovereignty of America, it is not likely that America will ever be great again. The decline of America is a major fulfillment of Bible prophecy.)
(More: On Dec. 12, 2022, it was reported that a high-ranking Twitter official has been meeting weekly for several months with members of the FBI, the Dept. of Homeland Security, and Office of the Director of National Intelligence.)
Four, concerning corruption in Washington and all over the world: on Dec. 6, 2022, it was reported that Democrat megadonor, George Soros, has ties to more than 250 media organizations around the world.
Soros uses these ties to support corrupt politicians, change the traditions, culture and values of nations, elect officials that refuse to prosecute crime, etc., and (because of his media contacts and large contributions to politicians) nothing is ever done to stop him.
(More: On Dec. 11, 2022, it was reported that released internal Twitter documents show that Michelle Obama called for Pres. Trump to be permanently banned. George Soros was a major contributor to Barack Obama’s election campaigns.)
Five, concerning election corruption: on Dec. 9, 2022, it was reported that Kari Lake has filed a 70-page lawsuit claiming hundreds of thousands of illegal votes were counted in the Arizona governor’s election and is asking the court to throw out the results.
Lake is up against Kati Hobbs, who oversaw the election and declared herself the winner.
(More: On Dec. 10, 2022, it was reported that released Twitter e-mails verify collusion between Hobbs and Twitter staffers to censor conservatives. One e-mail shows that an unidentified employee at the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security got Twitter to censor some anti-Hobbs tweets. It is my understanding that it is illegal for employees of the federal government to use their position to interfere in an election.)
(More: On Dec. 12, 2022, it was reported that Elon Musk said Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX empire funneled more than $1 billion to Democrats before FTX imploded; about $40 million in stolen investor money can be accounted for, but what happened to about $960 million is a mystery.)
(Note: On Dec. 12, 2022, it was reported that Sam Bankman-Fried has been arrested. On Dec. 14, 2022, it was reported that he is facing wire fraud, securities fraud, money laundering, and campaign finance violations. Notice that this man who was funneling stolen money to Democrats is facing campaign finance violations. I may have missed it, but I have not seen one word about any Democrats returning any of the stolen money.)
Six, concerning the fact that Biden calls himself a good Catholic (he makes himself willingly ignorant of Scripture or doesn’t believe it): on Dec. 13, 2022, he signed the falsely named “Respect for Marriage Act” into law (a bill that wipes out the “Defense of Marriage Act” that allowed states to define marriage as between a man and a woman).
39 House Republicans and 12 Senate Republicans joined the Democrats in a rejection of God’s definition of marriage and a vote to redefine it.
Biden celebrated his rejection of God’s Word with an elaborate taxpayer-funded signing ceremony at the White House in the presence of more than 5,000 people, including drag queens (men dressed as women), musicians, and others.
God will have the final say on this during the Tribulation Period.
Seven, concerning an economic collapse: on Dec. 14, 2022, it was reported:
That vegetable prices in the U.S. increased 38% in November.
That 20 million households in the U.S. are behind on their utility bills.
Eight, concerning world government: on Dec. 13, 2022, The Defender posted an article by Dr. Joseph Mercola which said (in my words for the sake of brevity)…
The Great Reset will give people an electronic ID that will be connected to their bank account, health records, and social credit score.
The reason for giving people an ID number that is connected to their bank account, health records, and social credit score is to track and control them.
Every leader will be appointed, not elected (it will be the end of democracy, voting, etc.).
Biden supports this plan.
The New World Order, Great Reset, Fourth Industrial Revolution, and Build Back Better are terms that refer to the same thing (a plan to use artificial intelligence – computers – to track and control everyone).
This plan is real; it is being implemented now; it is not a plan to return to the old normal; it is a plan to enslave everyone in the future, and people have already started working on ways to connect the body and mind of humans to computers (called transhumanism).
Political, business, and cultural elites are using an international organization called the World Economic Forum (WEF) to push this plan for their gain.
Those that think things are bad now will find that they are infinitely worse when this plan gets fully implemented (my comment: goal is 2030 or sooner).
Here is a link to the article.
Nine, concerning world government: on Dec. 5, 2022, it was announced that the next World Economic Forum meeting will be Jan. 16-20, 2023.
It will be an invite-only meeting of about 2,500 globalists.
Here are 5 topics they intend to discuss:
A new system to deal with the energy and food crisis.
A new system to deal with high inflation, low growth, and a bad economy.
A new system based on the use of technology.
A new system to deal with social issues.
A new system to deal with dialogue and cooperation in a multipolar world.
I remind everyone that prophecy teachers have long said globalists plan to create problems or crises (food shortages, energy shortages, economic problems, etc.) and then propose solutions to solve them that will destroy freedom and establish a world government.
Here are some of the solutions (eat bugs and worms, drive electric vehicles, digital currency, government to own everything, etc.).
Ten, concerning BlackRock and world government:
BlackRock is the world’s largest investment firm.
BlackRock manages about $10 trillion of assets.
If BlackRock was a nation, it would be the third largest economy in the world (larger than every nation on earth except the U.S. and China).
BlackRock is a major supporter of the World Economic Forum (WEF).
It supports a cashless society, a digital currency, a transition to green energy, ESG scores (Environmental, Social, Governance scores), and more.
Tom Donilon, chairman of BlackRock’s Investment Institute, said, “We’re in a New World Order of geopolitical fragmentation.”
Donilon said, “the world is fragmenting into power blocks” (the U.S., Russia, China, etc.).
This is the point: The world will eventually be divided into ten power blocks, and this is beginning to shape up now.
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
