Ministry Takes Back ‘God’s Rainbow,’ Despite LGBT Threats
Verse of the Day
Genesis 9:13,14 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
I really like this idea. This is right in the face of the homosexuals that the rainbow is a sign of God’s covenant and not for a license for sin! The young need to be taught this and what a way to do it! I love when the Church uses the truth against the God-mockers!
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Revelation 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. (3) And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
“The man behind the world-famous Ark Encounter has decided to reclaim “God’s rainbow”—announcing the massive ark exhibit will be permanently bathed in rainbow lights.
“We now have new permanent rainbow lights at the Ark Encounter so all can see that it is God’s rainbow, and He determines its meaning in Genesis 6,” Answers in Genesis founder Ken Ham announced on Facebook.
“The rainbow is a reminder God will never again judge the wickedness of man with a global flood—next time the world will be judged by fire,” he said.
The 500-foot-long ark is the centerpiece of the biblical theme park based in Williamstown, Kentucky. Hundreds of thousands of visitors have toured the replica of Noah’s ark. “The ark is lit permanently at night with a rainbow to remind the world that God owns it and He decreed it’s a sign of His covenant with man after the Flood—Christians need to take back the rainbow as we do at the Ark Encounter,” Ham said.
Critics denounced the decision—accusing him of stealing the rainbow colors from the LGBT community. “This is Ken Ham’s sad attempt to take back the rainbow symbol from the LGBTQ community,” read a headline in the Orlando Weekly.”
2 Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
The Hard Left is ramping up to fight the church. For the most part they will have the courts behind them. This action is a direct result of the church rolling over and playing dead with the pastors hiding in the tall grass. The church failed to cry out to the Lord so now the sodomites will be at the doors of the churches like what happened at Sodom.
The Hard Left is out to destroy the American church. They are about to test the mettle of the church. These powerless preachers just might be forced to get on their knees and seek God or fold and be silenced.
In a way this test is real good because we will see who are real with the Lord and those pretending.
One thing that is very important to know about this battle. God will not tolerate the sodomites attacking his people standing for him and silencing the gospel. If the Hard Left shuts down the real church, it is the end of the nation.
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
“Call me paranoid if you like, but I’m simply quoting what Tim Gill, the foremost LGBT political donor, says in his own words: “We’re going into the hardest states in the country,” he declares. “We’re going to punish the wicked,” by which he means Christian conservatives. In short, if you will not comply with LGBT activism, be it as a minister or as a businessperson, you will be punished. That is Gill’s goal, and to deny it is to be in denial.
According to Rolling Stone magazine, which interviewed Gill last month, he is the “Megadonor Behind the LGBTQ Rights Movement” who “turned a $500 million fortune into the nation’s most powerful force for LGBTQ rights.”
Islam – Jihad
Acid Attacks Plague London, What’s Really Happening 07/20/17 Almost everyday Muslims are attacking people in London with acid. This news is getting no coverage but actually is being suppressed!
Qatar, Saudi Arabia to Islamize One of Europe’s Greatest Cathedrals 07/21/17 Muslims are advancing on all fronts and the West is collapsing everywhere. This is just a sign of Western collapse since the Muslims will make this church a victory mosque, just like they wanted to do at the site of 9/11 in New York City.
Philippians 3:20 For our conversation (citizenship)is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
“Muslim supremacists seem to have fantasies — as well as a long history — of converting Christian sites to Islamic ones. Take, for example, Saint-Denis, the Gothic cathedral named for the first Christian bishop of Paris who was buried there in 250, and the burial place of Charles Martel, whose victory stopped the Muslim invasion of France in 732. Now, according to the scholar Gilles Kepel, this burial place of most of France’s kings and queens is “the Mecca in Islam of France”. The French Islamists are dreaming of taking it over and replacing the church bells with the call of the muezzin.
In Turkey’s greatest cathedral, Hagia Sophia, a muezzin’s call recently reverberated inside the sixth-century church for the first time in 85 years.
In France, Muslim leaders called for converting abandoned churches into mosques. thereby echoing The late writer Emile Cioran once predicted of Europe: “The French will not wake up until Notre Dame becomes a mosque”.
Now it is the turn of Spain’s greatest Catholic site, the Cathedral of Córdoba. Spanish “leftists” and secularists would now, it seems, like to convert to Islam the cathedral of Córdoba, the symbol of a time when “Islam was on the verge of turning the Mediterranean into a Muslim lake”. Now that Islam is again conquering large swaths of the Middle East and Africa, is it not a coincidence that this campaign is gaining ground?”
Jerusalem/ The Coming Middle East War
Doomsday averted on the Temple Mount, for now 07/21/17 This is a great article and a must read. It gives excellent background information about the Temple Mount, and how it might start the all-out war. This war is coming and it might start over the Temple Mount.
Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle…
“There is no more horrifying scenario for Israel, and perhaps the entire Middle East, than a serious attack on the Temple Mount, which to Muslims is the Haram al-Sharif, site of Al-Aqsa Mosque. Such a scenario has been keeping Israeli defense officials awake at night since the 1967 Six-Day War, when Israel took control of the eastern part of Jerusalem. At 7 a.m. July 14, it looked as if that very scenario might unfold.
Three young Israeli Arabs from Umm al-Fahm burst into the compound, the third holiest site in Islam, armed with makeshift machine guns, a pistol and knives. As they made their way, they shot and killed two Border Patrol officers stationed at one of the entrances. Their plan was to seize control of Al-Aqsa and thereby ignite a huge conflagration in Jerusalem, and perhaps Israel, the West Bank and the entire Middle East. Fortunately, Border Patrol officers responded quickly, and after a brief chase through the square surrounding the mosques there, shot and killed the three attackers.
It was a brief incident, suppressed in a matter of minutes, but it was enough to send shock waves across Israel and the Palestinian territories. It forced Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to link arms and work together, despite their mutual loathing and current competition for support from the US administration. They were both committed to preventing a further deterioration in the situation or escalation, which could have left them both trapped by flames. Netanyahu called Abbas almost immediately to report what had happened and try to put an end to the rumors and fake news that tends to inundate social networks after such events. Abbas responded as Netanyahu had hoped, condemning the attack in unusually sharp terms.”

Huge Free-Speech Win in Illinois: Court Stops State From Forcing Pro-Lifers to Promote Abortions 07/20/17 This is great news for the protection of our religious freedoms. Look at how this state promotes abortion and at the same time is financially bankrupt! I think the two go and hand and hand, and this where the all the pro-abortion states are heading.
Ezekiel 36:18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:
“A federal judge in Illinois handed down a major victory for religious conscience and free speech protection Wednesday, granting a statewide preliminary injunction against a 2016 law change that would force pro-life medical providers to refer patients to abortion businesses upon request.
Though the law has not yet been enforced despite a January 2017 effective date, the state’s 147 pro-life pregnancy centers — at least 74 of which offer free ultrasounds — have been vulnerable to the state’s demands for nearly seven months.
Gutting provisions previously enshrined in Illinois’ Healthcare Right of Conscience Act — once considered the gold standard of freedom protections in the U.S. — the 2016 change would have forced pro-life medical professionals of all kinds to cultivate a list of known abortion mills in their area to hand to patients.
The change — which was signed into law by Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner — also threatened to force pro-life medicos and pregnancy centers alike to counsel patients as to the so-called “benefits” of abortion.”
NARAL Slights Harvard-Educated Trump Judicial Nominee as ‘Shady Blogger’ 07/20/17 What I found in this article was the quality of this judge that President Trump appointed to the Court of Appeals. I really was pleased with him and what he stands for. I hope all of the President’s appointees are like him. If the Hard left viciously attacks him, then you know that he has to be good!
“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) filed cloture on President Trump’s nominee for the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Monday, but NARAL Pro-Choice America called on the Senate to block the “unfit” and “unqualified” nominee, in a press release.
In NARAL’s statement calling the nominee, John K. Bush, unqualified, they omitted the fact that he received his B.A. from Vanderbilt and his J.D. from Harvard. He clerked on the Eighth Circuit from 1989 to 1990 and worked for the Advisory Committee on Rules for U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit from 2012 to 2015, according to National Review.
Nonetheless Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer appeared to be taking cues from the extremist pro-abortion group.
“The nominee, Judge Bush, in my view, is not fit for the austere office of a circuit court judge,” he said in a floor speech on Wednesday. “He clearly lacks the temperament required of a Circuit Judge, and I urge all of my colleagues to vote no on cloture and no on the nomination.”
Reformed Church Body Signs Declaration on Justification to ‘Overcome Divisions’ With Catholic Church 07/20/17 They are coming home to papa. The Catholic church has a completely different doctrine than what is taught in the Bible. Why do these churches feel so compelled to reconcile with Rome?
“A worldwide coalition of Reformed churches representing approximately 80 million Christians has signed onto an ecumenical statement with the Roman Catholic Church to “overcome divisions” from the time of the Protestant Reformation.
The World Communion of Reformed Churches signed a “Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification” with Catholic, Lutheran, and Methodist leaders last week at a church in Wittenberg, Germany. According to a WCRC press release, “The declaration stated that mutual condemnations pronounced by the two sides during the Reformation do not apply to their current teaching on justification.”
According to the WCRC, “The congregation at Wittenberg’s Stadtkirche (Town Church), broke into spontaneous applause as WCRC General Secretary Chris Ferguson and Catholic, Lutheran and Methodist representatives signed a statement confirming the WCRC’s association with the joint declaration.”
WCRC President Jerry Pillay said in a statement that the signing of the ecumenical agreement was “a historic day,” describing it as “significant and symbolic of the road we are to travel.”
The WCRC was founded in 2010 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with the merger of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches and the Reformed Ecumenical Council.
Catholic Bishop Brian Farrell, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, was part of the delegation sent to Wittenberg for last week’s ceremony.”
Our Big Bear Family (Video) 07/20/17 This is a light change of pace from the heavy articles I usually post. I really enjoyed watching this, and it is amazing to see the love of bears for people.
Isaiah 11:6-7 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. (7) And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
Psalm 55:9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
