CDC: U.S. Suicide Rates Rising Dramatically
Verse of the Day
Philippians 4:6,7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
This is heartbreaking. There is a depression and hopelessness overshadowing America. As we reject the Lord and go deeper into sin, the Holy Spirit withdraws his grace over the nation. Curses are starting to overtake America.
We need revival for survival. This is at critical mass as our children are murderers, tens of millions are using drugs and 46,000 are committing suicide every year.
We need a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit. I pray every Saturday night live on FaceBook at 9PM EST for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. All are welcome.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
Revival in America
“Suicide rates in the United States have increased by nearly 30 percent since 1999, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states.
According to a study of trends in suicide rates among individuals ten years of age and older, between 1999-2016, suicide rates rose significantly in 44 states. An increase of greater than 30 percent in suicides was observed in 25 states.
The greatest increase in suicides was seen in “middle-aged adults,” between the ages of 45 and 64. Significant jumps in female suicides were seen in 43 states and in male suicides, in 34 states. In 2016 alone, there were almost 45,000 deaths from suicide.”
Hard Left vs Christians
“Arizona Court OK with forcing Christians to violate faith” The Hard Left is using “homosexual marriage” in an attempt to break the real church. They are testing our mettle.
If they win in the courts, it will not be a long time until they force our faith within the walls of the church or go to jail. When they succeed with this, they will move on to close the churches and put the pastors in jail.
Remember, these people hate us as much as the Jews hated the Nazis. They loath us and want to destroy us. Right now this is spiritual warfare that soon could be physical. You can see just how deep the reprobate mind is in America.
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
“Three judges in an Arizona court, Lawrence Winthrop, Jennifer Campbell, and Paul McMurdie, have announced they are comfortable with the city of Phoenix forcing Christian artists to violate their faith and endorse same-sex marriage.
The announcement came in their decision, from their Arizona Court of Appeals, affirming a Phoenix ordinance that mandates that Christian company owners must support and endorse same-sex marriage with their products and artistry.
The same issue was before the U.S. Supreme Court just this week, and that court ruled in favor of a Colorado Christian baker who refused to lend his artistry to a cake for a homosexual duo. But the court did that on the grounds that the state of Colorado exhibited bias against the baker.
So multiple fights over the issue, by a florist in Washington State and others, continue. This one involves two Christian artists who run Brush & Nib, a custom calligraphy service, Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski. They sued when Phoenix adopted an ordinance that would punish them for refusing to violate their faith and promote, with their artistry, a gay wedding.”
Hard Left Crystallizing
“Facebook, Amazon, Google And Twitter All Work With Left-Wing SPLC” These organization are playing hard ball and plan to block us from the information world. They loath the truth and will everything possible to censor us.
They are not going to stop until the government or we stop them. They are ruthless and hate the truth.
Notice how they never let up with their agenda and that is promoting the reprobate mind agenda against God.
Psalm 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? (2) The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, (3) Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. (4) He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
“Four of the world’s biggest tech platforms have working partnerships with a left-wing nonprofit that has a track record of inaccuracies and routinely labels conservative organizations as “hate groups.”
Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter all work with or consult the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in policing their platforms for “hate speech” or “hate groups,” a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.
The SPLC is on a list of “external experts and organizations” that Facebook works with “to inform our hate speech policies,” Facebook spokeswoman Ruchika Budhraja told TheDCNF in an interview. Facebook consults the outside organizations when developing changes to hate speech policies, Budhraja said, noting that Facebook representatives will typically hold between one and three meetings with the groups.”
President Trump Showing Faith (Video)
“‘Prayer Changes Hearts’: President Trump Honors God’s Redemptive Work in Former Bank Robber’s Life” This is really wonderful and uplifting. Make sure you watch the video as the President is really honoring men of faith in Jesus.
John 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
“Jon Ponder was an inmate that was given a second chance and he says it did not come from a prison reform program, but from the hand of God. “I invited Jesus to be the Lord of my life and life just went in a 180-degree turn,” Ponder told Fox & Friends.
President Trump honored Ponder and the work he is doing with prison inmates during the National Day of Prayer Thursday. “Your story reminds us that prayer changes hearts and transforms lives,” the president said. “It uplifts the soul, inspires action, and unites us all as one nation under God.”
Ponder took to Twitter hours later to thank the president. “What an absolute honor to have the @POTUS @realDonaldTrump acknowledge the transformative power of God at work in my life and validate the great work God is doing through the ministry,” he wrote.”
Another Wonderful Trump Testimony
“Alice Marie Johnson thanks Trump for ‘second chance,’ tells Fox News faith kept her strong” The President is really showing mercy which is wonderful. I love that he is cutting through all the bureaucratic nonsense and just reacting when he sees a need.
This woman has a wonderful testimony for the Lord in prison, and I think she will advance the Lord’s kingdom while free.
Proverbs 20:28 Mercy and truth preserve the king: and his throne is upholden by mercy.
“Alice Marie Johnson, the woman whose life sentence was commuted by President Trump this week, promised the commander in chief: “I will make you proud.”Johnson, 63, had been serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole after she was convicted of a first-time nonviolent drug offense and charges related to money laundering. Reality TV icon Kim Kardashian West took up her case, even meeting with Trump at the White House to plead for clemency.
In an interview Thursday night with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on “The Story,” Johnson expressed her gratitude for Trump’s decision the day before to commute her sentence. “Thank you so much President Trump for taking the time to look at my case and to really look at me,” she said. “I promise you President Trump, I will make you proud that you gave me that second chance.”
Europe Awakening to Islam
“Austria to shut down mosques, expel foreign-funded imams” What is happening in Europe is signs of nationalism coming to life in several countries. Their goal is to bring the Muslims under control. This is seen in Italy, Poland, Hungary and even in Sweden. Now Austria is moving to confront the Muslims.
This is real good news for Europe, but the problem is Germany, France, Britain and other nations are loaded with Muslims, who are militant and will not be subdued easily. Europe is now starting to divide over the Muslims.
“Austria’s right-wing government plans to shut seven mosques and could expel dozens of imams in what it said was “just the beginning” of a push against radical Islam and foreign funding of religious groups that Turkey condemned as racist.
The coalition government, an alliance of conservatives and the far right, came to power soon after Europe’s migration crisis on promises to prevent another influx and restrict benefits for new immigrants and refugees. The moves follow a “law on Islam”, passed in 2015, which banned foreign funding of religious groups and created a duty for Muslim organizations to have “a positive fundamental view towards (Austria’s) state and society”.
“Ex-Ranger: ‘Communism Will Win’ Soldier Discharged from Army” This is a followup to an article I posted when the issue had national attention. My question is: why did it take so long to discharge him!
“Spenser Rapone — the Army soldier who became notorious after a picture of him in his West Point uniform holding a “Communism Will Win” sign went viral — was discharged from the Army this month, according to social media postings.
Rapone first gained widespread attention in September after he tweeted the picture of himself at his 2016 West Point graduation holding the “Communism Will Win” sign under his cover, or hat, along with the hashtag #VeteransforKaepernick, in support of former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Members of the military are prohibited from expressing political views while in uniform. He also tweeted a photo of himself wearing a Che Guavara t-shirt under his uniform.”
Earthquakes and Volcanoes
“Shocking satellite photos show entire towns obliterated after Guatemala’s ‘Volcano of Fire’ buried them in tons of ash that crushed hundreds of homes and burned 300 people alive” There is a noticeable increase in active volcanoes starting about five years ago. The Pacific ring of fire is getting very active.
“Giant clouds of superheated smoke and ash burned people alive and buried entire towns in a deadly volcanic eruption in Guatemala that killed almost 100 people.
Shocking satellite photos of before and after Sunday’s eruption show whole suburbs wiped off the map as hundreds of houses collapsed when tons of falling ash crushed them.
What was once a collection of green canyons, hillsides and farms was reduced to grey devastation by fast-moving avalanches of super-heated muck that roared into the tightly knit villages on the mountain’s flanks. Volcan de Fuego, meaning ‘Volcano of Fire’ spewed a ‘curtain’ of ash 20,000ft into the air and sent rapid pyroclastic flows through at least seven nearby towns in the biggest eruption for four decades.”
Hard Left Loves Planned Parenthood
“‘Back in the Arms of Her Predator’: Why Traffickers and Abusers Send Young Girls to Planned Parenthood” PP has to be one of the most evil organizations on earth, and it is protected by corrupt politicians and judges.
“A new investigative study reveals that Planned Parenthood is not stopping its controversial practices that destroy the value of human life. Live Action says it has evidence that the abortion giant is now helping child sex abusers and traffickers cover up their crimes.
According to the pro-life group’s new report, Planned Parenthood is neglecting to report instances of sexual abuse to the authorities and in some cases sent their victims back to their abusers after performing an abortion.
“Planned Parenthood has repeatedly looked the other way, performed abortions on victims as young as 12 years old, and then returned those victims into the waiting arms of their abusers,” the report reads. “Planned Parenthood’s repeated failure to report such incidents has allowed abusers to continue abusing their victims, often for years.”
Hard Left Closing in on Believers
“Christian Teacher Says School Forced Him to Resign for Not Following Transgender Policy” There is no end to the folly of the reprobate mind. The time is long past that we should remove our children from these destructive public schools. Back in 1963, the schools were turned over to the devil and church just yawned and now we see the devil is in full control.
Galatians 4:1,2 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
“A school teacher in Indiana says the district forced him to step down because he wasn’t willing to call transgender students by their preferred names due to his Christian faith.
John Kluge, the former orchestra teacher at Brownsburg High School in Brownsburg, Indiana, submitted a tentative letter of resignation late last month because the district threatened to fire him with three weeks remaining in the school year, according to Indy Star, which also reported that he sought to withdraw the letter on the last student day at the school but the school is not letting him stay.”
Democrats and the Death of California
Have the reprobates killed the state?
Is it too far gone to be pulled out of suicide by sin?
Only a divine move by the Lord, like in electing President Trump, can save this state. In the natural it is doomed, but maybe the Lord will have mercy if his people pray and cry out to him! (cartoon)
