The Only Generation :: By Daymond Duck

From raptureready.com

On Jan. 23, 2023, Hal Lindsey started off his weekly article like this:

“The price of eggs…. A Mall of America security guard threatening the wearer of a ‘Jesus saves’ t-shirt…. Attacks on the U.S. power grid…. A worldwide obsession with pornography…. Another wave of nuclear threats coming out of Russia…. A universal weakening of democratic institutions…. A global reshuffling of leaders…. Threats of ‘civil war’ in Israel…. Corruption in the highest levels of government across the world…. Weaponized Artificial Intelligence…. Deep fake audio and video enabling previously unimagined levels of deception.… Global economic chaos…, and on and on.

“What do these and hundreds of other things like them have in common? They are signs of the soon coming of Jesus. Planet Earth is in the throes of the birth of a new world. It’s difficult — even excruciating — but it is also thrilling. We are entering the days foreseen by the prophets.”

Wow, just the kind of thing one would expect from the foremost prophecy teacher in our lifetime.

Hal mentioned that there are hundreds of other signs, and I will add the following to his list:

  • The rebirth of Israel.
  • The restoration of Jerusalem with Israel in control.
  • Preparations to rebuild the Temple and resume the animal sacrifices.
  • The technology to control all buying and selling.
  • The technology for the whole world to see the resurrection of the Two Witnesses and the Second Coming of Jesus.
  • The developing world government (New World Order; Great Reset; Build Back Better, etc.).
  • The developing world religion (calling good evil and evil good; increasing rejection of Jehovah, Jesus, and the Bible; increasing promotion of abortion, LGBTQ agenda, etc.).
  • The increasing frequency and intensity of natural disasters, famine, pestilences, poverty, etc.

We are the only generation to see the convergence of all the prophecies that the Bible said will be fulfilled at the end of the age.

Here are recent events that seem to indicate that the end of the age is looming.

One, concerning the persecution of Christians: on Jan. 24, 2023, it was reported that Open Doors has been monitoring the persecution of Christians since 1993 (for 30 years), and it is increasing all over the world.

According to the group, globally, more than 360 million Christians are experiencing “very high or extreme levels of persecution for their faith.”

Two, concerning persecution: on Jan. 29, 2023, Paul Craig Roberts (Institute for Political Economy) noted that political activism is normalizing sexual perversion (homosexuality, pedophilia, etc.) and making criticizing it a criminal violation of civil rights and hate speech laws.

I agree with Roberts, but I want to add my opinion on something here.

While there has always been persecution over some issues, I don’t believe society has ever had the normalization of sexual perversion on a global scale or the criminalization of speaking out against it on a global scale, but that is where the world is headed now.

The United Nations, World Health Organization, World Economic Forum, United States, and other despisers of the truth are promoting global laws that will criminalize Bible truth all over the world (II Tim. 3:1-7).

Sexual perversion is just part of it; other things that are going to be outlawed include spreading the truth, worshipping Jesus instead of the Antichrist, some things people want to spend their money on, etc.

Society is witnessing the birth of unparalleled global tribulation- period persecution of believers that matches Bible prophecy: censorship of truth; prosecution of believers for praying silently in front of an abortion clinic, for refusing to make a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding, etc.

Persecution of people who become believers during the Tribulation Period will be terrible.

Three, concerning the WEF: on Jan. 16, 2023, highly respected writer Leo Hohman wrote, “They intend to digitally enslave the world in a total surveillance state based on a global digital I.D. (likely disguised as vaccine passports) and a global digital currency to replace cash.”

Four, concerning world government: on Jan. 24, 2023, it was reported that Canadian Member of Parliament, Dr. Leslyn Lewis, continues to speak out against Canada’s involvement in the World Economic Forum (WEF).

  • In 2022, Lewis said, “The WEF threatens Canadian Democracy.”
  • On Jan. 23, 2023, Lewis said, “The unelected WEF is not our government. Canadians did not sign up for the WEF’s plan to create agile rule-making in a post-pandemic world & the 4th Industrial Revolution (something that Prime Min. Trudeau did in 2020).

As I understand it, Dr. Lewis said it is wrong for Trudeau to be signing international agreements that impose global laws on Canadian citizens that they haven’t voted for and their Parliament hasn’t approved.

This is also happening in the U.S., and citizens could lose many of their rights at the World Health Organization Assembly meeting in May.

(More: Concerning that meeting: on Jan. 27, 2023, prophecy teacher Jonathan Brentner wrote, “If it (the Pandemic Treaty) is approved by member nations during their May 2023 meeting, it would give the WHO and its head absolute control over member nations in regard to what they deem as health emergencies. In other words, in the event they declare such a crisis, the WHO could prescribe a course of action for everyone. It wouldn’t matter if the president of a nation disagreed – the dictates of the WHO would become law in his or her country. Should a U.S. governor say “No!” to the WHO mandates, that also wouldn’t matter. The WHO would have the power to militarily enforce compliance with its health dictates.”)

Five, concerning the recent WEF meeting and world government: on Jan. 26, 2023, Canada Free Press posted an article by writer, commentator, and Radio Host Douglas V. Gibbs.

Gibbs has been on “Hannity” and “Fox and Friends.

Gibbs’ nickname is “Mr. Constitution,” and he said, “Unelected elitists who believe their job is to rule the world recently gathered at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, meeting to discuss the fate of all of humanity and the road we must take based on their visions in order to ‘save the world.’ Except, they don’t mean to save the world; they mean to control humanity and break the spirit of anyone who dares stand against them.”

Gibbs continued, “These tyrants drive and lobby policies in the United States through a well-placed, deeply embedded deep state, and they do the same throughout the world. The dark spirit of tyranny we fought wars (including two World Wars and a Cold War) against has now become the mainstream leadership on this planet, and they aim to make sure that this time they are not knocked off the top of the mountain.”

Here is a link to the article.

(My opinion: The prophesied world government is shaping up, and it will be seven years of hell on earth. The only people that are not going to be impacted are those that die before then and those that are truly trusting in Jesus when the Rapture occurs.)

Six, concerning famine and hyperinflation (food shortages, extreme food, and energy prices, etc.) during the Tribulation Period: on Jan. 27, 2021, shortly after he became Pres. of the U.S., Biden signed an Executive Order that committed the U.S. to conserving at least 30% of America’s land and water by 2030.

Unless this is reversed, it will block mining, farming, and drilling for oil on 30% of America’s lands and water by 2030.

Blocking mining, farming, fishing, and drilling for oil on 30% of the world’s land and water will have a great impact on everyone’s life.

At the U.N. Biodiversity Conference that was held on Dec. 7-19, 2022, under the guise of saving “Mother Earth” from natural disasters (rising sea levels, floods, droughts, wildfires, etc.) supposedly created by man’s pollution and excessive consumption, the group agreed to a plan called the 30-by-30 (or 30 X 30) Initiative.

One of the 30-by-30 Initiative goals is to protect 30% of the world’s land, water, and marine areas (not allow 30% of these areas to be used) by 2030.

Critics say the real goal is to transform the world according to the agenda, morals, etc., of the “Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”

Anyway, on Jan. 26, 2023, the Biden administration announced a 20-year ban on mining on 225,504 acres of land in Minnesota.

Another group of U.S. workers will be losing their jobs, and Biden has already signed an agreement to make funds available to increase mining in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (sounds like putting U.S. workers drilling for oil off the coast of Florida out of work and asking Saudi Arabia to increase production).

He seems determined to weaken America.

Seven, concerning hyperinflation and a global economic collapse: on Jan. 25, 2023, the head of the Bank of Canada warned that Canada’s economy has stalled, growth will be close to zero for the remainder of this year, and Canada’s citizens are not going to feel good.

Critics blame Prime Min. Trudeau for running up Canada’s debt with excessive spending on Covid and unnecessary liberal programs.

Payday has arrived in Canada, but most of the world is facing the same problem.

Eight, concerning the Millennium in Israel: God said, “The desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose…. For in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water” (Isa. 35:1, 7).

In recent years, Israel has built several desalination plants to draw water from the Mediterranean Sea and make it suitable for drinking.

On Jan. 30, 2030, it was reported that Israel has received very little rain this winter, but Israel’s system of desalination plants has filled the Sea of Galilee, and Israel will soon double the amount of water it sells to Jordan.

Nine, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on Jan. 29, 2023, Israeli drones struck an Iranian weapons production facility inside Iran.

There are contradictory reports about what Iran was producing (drones, ballistic missiles, etc.), but the next day, Russia’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement that said, “We strongly condemn any provocative actions potentially capable of provoking an uncontrolled escalation of tension in an already far from calm region. Such destructive actions may have unpredictable consequences for peace and stability in the Middle East.”

Two things stand out about this event:

  • One, Israel apparently struck a target inside Iran.
  • Two, some analysts called Russia’s statement a veiled threat to Israel.

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.

Victor Davis Hanson: The Establishment Is Behind The Woke Revolution (VIDEO)

From thegatewaypundit.com

Conservative scholar Victor Davis Hanson has become a leading voice in conservative politics in recent years.

His analysis of our current political environment is unmatched.

If you’ve been wondering who is leading the woke revolution that has taken over pretty much everything, Hanson has an answer. It is the entire establishment.

From FOX News:

The establishment is leading the ‘top-down, woke revolution’: Victor Davis Hanson

Unlike the free-spirit days of the 1960s, when the proverbial revolutionaries on the left were fighting the establishment, the front lines in today’s “woke revolution” are the establishment itself, according to historian Victor Davis Hanson.

Hanson, a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, told “Life, Liberty & Levin” in an interview airing Sunday that the entity that used to take the arrows in the culture wars is now slinging them itself.

“If you look at the ’60s, people were marching on the campus president’s office to demand change. Now, the campus president is the one that’s suppressing free speech,” Hanson said, citing a Norman Mailer novel that described a planned march on the Pentagon by people demanding social change.

“But [now], the Pentagon’s inaugurating everything from subsidized transgender surgeries to hunting out supposed ‘White rage’ and White supremacy in the ranks on its own, by its own volition.”

Watch the video below:

This is the VDH essay that is referenced in the video:

The Establishment Is the Revolution

The current Left has no intention of “dropping out.” Why would it?

It now controls the very institutions of America that it once mocked and attacked—corporate boardrooms, Wall Street, state and local prosecuting attorneys, most big-city governments, the media, the Pentagon, network and most of cable news, professional sports, Hollywood, music, television, K-12 education, and academia. 

In other words, the greatest levers of influence and power—money, education, entertainment, government, the news, and popular culture—are in the hands of the Left. They have transformed legitimate debate over gay marriage into a hate crime. Transgenderism went from a modern manifestation of ancient transvestism or gender dysphoria to a veritable litmus test of whether one was good or evil.

Students have no need to jam administrators’ offices because the latter, themselves, are as radical as the protestors and often lead them on in a top-down fashion. Had they not long ago demonstrated they were perfectly willing to subvert meritocracy, free expression, and equality under the law, they would not be occupying their present positions.

Apple, Google, Facebook, and other tech companies are not 1980s and 1990s “alternative” media geeks and hipsters creating neat gadgets for the people. They are not Steve Jobs and his pugnacious Apple battling the evil Microsoft or IBM, or the Macintosh commercial of 1984 depicting a maverick throwing a hammer into Big Brother’s screen. They are the Orwellian screen.

Hanson is a brilliant man. He would make an excellent Secretary of Education in the next Republican administration. Source

UN Looking To Push Religious Communities To ‘Fully Comply’ With LGBTQ Agenda

THIS is what will get us incarcerated. I’m ready, are you? When it happens, Jesus will use us mightily in JAIL!

From thedailycaller.com

  • The United Nations is set to release a report at its annual Human Rights Council meeting in June to discuss the “perceived contradictions” between religious freedom and sexual orientation and gender identity.
  • Respondents were asked whether or not any religious beliefs and LGBT+ rights were “mutually exclusive,” to point out policies that protect discriminatory religious practices and about the extent to which religious individuals have the right to a conscientious objection.
  • “My biggest concern is the premise of the report which seems to suggest that freedom of religion and rights based on sexual orientation are the same,” Grace Melton, senior associate in the Richard and Helen DeVos Center for Life, Religion, and Family at the Heritage Foundation, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The United Nations is releasing a report in June regarding the “perceived contradictions” between religious freedom and sexual orientation and gender identity, or SOGI, laws and is looking to push governments to “fully comply with their obligations under international human rights law to protect and empower LGBT+ persons,” according to a U.N. announcement.

The U.N. closed a call for LGBT+ and religious freedom organizations to submit input to the report earlier this month and is scheduled to introduce its findings at the 53rd Human Rights Council meeting in June, according to the announcement. The announcement explains that while there are “perceived contradictions” between the LGBT+ community and religious freedom, the report aims to find ways to “protect LGBT+ persons’ access to faith and spirituality” while also indicating that religious beliefs that would contradict this are not “justified” under the protection of human rights. (RELATED: In Courts Across America, Religious Liberty Is On The Docket In 2023)

“Religious and spiritual narratives have also historically been used to promote, enable, and condone institutional and personal violence and discrimination against individuals based on sexual orientation or gender identity (real or presumed); repress sexual and gender diversity; and promote cis-gendered and heteronormative norms of sexual orientation and gender identity,” the announcement read. “These practices cannot be justified under the rubric of Freedom of Religious Beliefs, or indeed any other human right, to circumvent and defeat the rights of marginalized populations.”

The person in charge of the special report is Victor Madrigal-Borloz, an expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity and a professor at Harvard Law School. Madrigal-Borloz has long been an LGBTQ advocate and recently welcomed Pope Francis’ declaration that homosexuality is “not a crime,” despite the pontiff’s further clarification that in religious circles it is still considered sinful.

Any organization that wished to comment for the inquiry was tasked with keeping their comments to a minimum of 2,5000 words and providing answers to 11 questions on religious freedom and the rights of the LGBT+ community, according to the announcement. Respondents were asked whether or not any religious beliefs and LGBT+ rights were “mutually exclusive,” to point out policies that protect discriminatory religious practices and about the extent to which religious individuals have the right to a conscientious objection.

The U.N. didn’t disclose who commented ahead of the report’s release, but two organizations publicly published their comments for the inquiry, focusing on their concerns about the impact on the religious community. The Religious Freedom Institute and the Heritage Foundation’s comments worried that the special inquiry would “undermine” and result in the “politicization” of religious freedom as a human right.
“My biggest concern is the premise of the report which seems to suggest that freedom of religion and rights based on sexual orientation are the same,” Grace Melton, senior associate in the Richard and Helen DeVos Center for Life, Religion, and Family at Heritage, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “But certainly as a function of international law, they are not the same. Freedom of religion or belief, or freedom of conscience, is an internationally protected human right. It’s codified in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which is a legally binding treaty.”

Melton further explained that she was “not terribly optimistic” that Madrigal-Borloz shared her views on the subject and warned that both domestic and international laws have become more and more antagonistic toward those who openly express their religious beliefs.

“Increasingly the U.S. has seen international law or U.N. opinions inform our own judicial opinions or even our own laws, regardless of whether or not that’s what the Founders intended,” Melton said. “So from the outset, to conflate those two things is concerning from somebody who is supposed to be a human rights expert.”

Andrea Picciotti-Bayer, a fellow for the Institute for Human Ecology at the Catholic University of America, told the DCNF that she had similar worries, calling the report a “bold attack” and an attempt to try and “walk back the special protection” afforded to those with sincerely held religious beliefs.

“Despite saying that we shouldn’t have these rights pitted against one another, but when you keep reading on you see that the author of the report really does see [rights and religion] as being in conflict,” Picciotti-Bayer said. “I think it’s important that the foundation of the question of human rights is that these are universally shared rights, that we share not by nature of any affinities but because of our humanity and the right to religious freedom … that’s a right that each and every human being possesses.”

Picciotti-Bayer said that efforts like the one from the U.N. are based on a “narrative” that “religion is an oppressor and that religious freedom can be weaponized to harm others.”

“This narrative is not only harmful because it could make people doubt the importance of religion in their own lives and their communities, but it’s also harmful because it will undermine really important social protection. Religion and religious freedom is a stabilizing presence, and for the cases where religion is being misused to oppress, the answer isn’t to shut down religion entirely.”

The U.N. and Madrigal-Borloz did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment. Source

COME LORD JESUS!

JOE MUST GO – The American People Lost All Trust in Biden Due to His Connections with China – The Spy Balloon Proved It

I don’t think the Left lost all trust in Creepy Joe. They have ZERO discernment. Conservatives NEVER had trust in this enemy of America!

From thegatewaypundit.com

The Biden family has multiple material issues with China.  Due to their many conflicts, it’s time for Joe to go. 

This week’s China spy balloon tragedy embedded all of America’s concerns with the Biden Administration and China.  Based on this week’s actions alone, Joe Biden cannot be trusted when it concerns China.

Joe Biden is compromised by China.  His son Hunter is a big part of this.  Hunter and Joe are connected to China money from when Joe was Obama’s Vice President.

DAY 2 BOMBSHELL: Newly Released Emails Show How Hunter Biden Worked to Cash in Big on China WITH MONEY HELD FOR HIS DAD, JOE BIDEN!

The Chinese sent Hunter a 3-carrot diamond ring in appreciation of his works.  Numerous wire transfers connect Hunter with China as we reported on November 2, 2020, the day before the 2020 Election.

We know Joe is compromised by China.  His policies ALL help China and hurt the US.  It’s as if he is doing whatever China tells Joe to do.  This is embarrassing but more so it is frightening.  

Never before in US history has a person in the White House been more compromised by a foreign entity.

This week’s actions related to China show the extent of Biden being compromised by China.

Here is a list of his concerning actions and statements that allowed China to spy on the US. 

1. China sent a spy balloon over the United States.  We don’t know what information China was after but this was a serious act that many could define as an act of war.  After dropping COVID on the world with no consequences, the risks with this balloon were extremely serious and Biden allowed the spy balloon to continue across the country uninhibited.

2. The balloon flew over the Aleutian Islands first and it could have been stopped there and then with no risk to anyone.

3. The balloon was then spotted over Montana when it made the news.

4. On Thursday the military reported that they knew the China surveillance (spy) balloon was there but they decided to allow it to continue doing whatever it was doing – they weren’t going to shoot it down.

5. On Friday morning it was announced that Biden’s Secretary of State Tony Blinken cancelled his upcoming trip to China after President Trump said the obvious for a country the protects its people – shoot the balloon down.

6. A former RAF and commercial airline pilot pointed out on Friday that there was no way this balloon was flying across the nation without it being sanctioned by Biden.  Nothing gets in the US airspace that doesn’t have a flight plan and a transponder device.

7. We learned yesterday (Saturday) that Biden knew the unidentified object had entered American airspace on Jan. 28, that had then left and re-entered over North Idaho on Tuesday. But Biden’s gang tried to keep it hidden.  Our RAF friend was right.

8. On Friday there were spottings of the balloon in the St. Louis area near where Scott Air Force base is located.  The balloon was allowed to continue in its easterly manner.  A Missouri Senator sent a letter to the Missouri governor asking him to bring in the National Guard and down the balloon to protect Missouri’s citizens.

9. The balloon was eventually shot down after it was allowed to cross the entire United States from Alaska to Montana, across the US to the North Carolina shore.

10. The previously mentioned former RAF and commercial airline pilot pointed out to TGP that:
the US fighter pilot emptied his cannon into the balloon and shredded it, causing the payload to drop immediately.  2 or 3 rounds would have been better than a few hundred.  This also allowed China to obtain data from all the way across the US and reduces the chance of a US recovery of the payload.

11. Biden then claimed that he ordered the military to shoot down the balloon on Wednesday when it was over Montana.  But the military told him to wait until there was a safer place to shoot it down.  (No one believes Biden or the military because these actions allowed China to spy on damn near the entire country. )

12. Biden’s military after shooting down the balloon offshore then claimed that China may get there first before the US has a ship and crew in the area to obtain the remains of China’s spy balloon.

13. After all these lies and inactions, Biden’s Pentagon said yesterday that they successfully blocked the China spy balloon from gathering intel and the Pentagon also claims it was able to gather intel on the balloon itself and its equipment.  Whether this is true or not, who would believe it?

This is the reason Joe Must Go – when it comes to China, Joe Biden CANNOT be trusted. To protect the American people, he must be impeached and removed from office. Source

Brothers and sisters in Christ – this absolutely does NOT pass the smell test! Biden knew about this 5 days before it transpired.

Biden allowed the so-called China spy balloon to surveil the whole of the U.S. including Alaska; then shot it down over the Atlantic.

And now we’re told that they are taking their sweet time to salvage what they can from the downed balloon!? This has DEEP STATE written all over it!

HOW CAN I BE SAVED?
