Can It Be True? North Korea Agrees To Open Its Doors To Christianity!

North Korea Agrees To Open Its Doors To Christianity

     How times can change. A few months ago, North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong-un, was firing missiles over Japan and threatening to send nuclear bombs in our direction. Now North Korea has agreed to open its doors to food, medicine and the message of Christ.
But last week, the young North Korea leader dropped a different kind of surprise on the world: He met with South Korean president Moon Jae-in on April 27 and announced that the 67-year-old Korean conflict is over. “I came here to put an end to the history of confrontation,” Kim Jung-un told Moon in a meeting on the border town of Panmunjom.
There will be no more war on the Korean peninsula, and a new age of peace has begun,” the two leaders said in a joint statement.

Charisma Magazine reports: Kim Jong-un, who has built the fourth largest army in the world—with 1.19 million soldiers—says he will now focus on rebuilding his country’s shattered economy.
Boom. Just like that, swords were converted into plowshares. The two leaders, all smiles for the cameras, agreed they will denuclearize the Korean peninsula within a year. They also agreed to set up reunions with families that have been divided since the Korean War started in 1950.
It feels like we should declare a global holiday and dance in the streets. But most Americans were too distracted by the opening of the new Avengers movie to pay attention to the headlines.
What was behind the Korean surprise? Most media outlets didn’t notice that Christians in South Korea had been fasting and praying for the peace summit. Pastors held an all-night vigil in the city of Paju, south of the North Korean border. And a group of Christian politicians held a fasting and prayer event in the National Assembly buildings in Seoul, according to Yonhap News.
North Korea’s persecuted Christians have also been praying for this moment—for years. They have been horribly persecuted. 

They have been forced to meet secretly. They have been routinely rounded up and sent to labor camps—or just shot on sight—because they did not worship Kim Jong-un as their god.

Defectors say something began to change when Kim Jong-un became dictator in 2011. His cruel regime, along with the misery of famine and economic ruin, caused people to become disillusioned with the phony utopia Kim claimed to rule over.
“In the past, the people were told to worship the Kim family as their god,” one defector told The Telegraph. “That means they are looking for something else to sustain their faith.”
Life in North Korea has been unbearable under Kim Jong-un. About six million citizens are starving and a third of North Korean children suffer from chronic malnutrition. (It is said that North Koreans are, on average, two inches shorter than South Koreans because of starvation.) Most people in North Korea don’t have electricity. They certainly don’t have the internet or access to news from the outside world.
North Korean “democracy” is a farce; people “vote” in “elections” where only one name is on the ballot—and those who cross out Kim’s name are rounded up and jailed. Even certain hairstyles are restricted! Meanwhile, if someone is convicted a crime, he does not go to jail alone—his children and grandchildren are also imprisoned.
The U.S. State Department has learned that between 10 to 45 percent of all people imprisoned in North Korea are Christians who are in jail because of their faith. Yet in the midst of this oppression God has been working. Some defectors have reported that North Korean officials are worried that Christianity will defeat “Juche,” the state-sponsored worship of Kim and his ancestors.
That fear is based on statistics. One report released by the U.S. State Department says the Christian population in North Korea multiplied five times from 2012 to 2017. There may be more than 400,000 Christians there now.
When I heard the news last week about the Korean miracle—after I pinched myself to see it was a dream—I turned to Psalm 46. It says: “Come, see the works of the Lord … He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts off the spear; He burns the chariot in the fire” (vv. 8-9).
God has worked this miracle. It is not the work of any politician. He has heard the prayers of his people on both sides of this conflict—and the prayers of the faithful around the world who felt North Korea’s pain. He will engineer a lasting peace in this part of the world, and open the doors wide for the gospel to flourish in a thirsty land.
Before long, the churches of South Korea will freely send teams into the North with food, medicine and the message of Christ. Like a patient who has been in a coma, North Korea will awaken. The world will watch a national transformation. We are witnessing the greatest display of God’s sovereign power over nations since the Berlin Wall fell.

The United NOTHINGS (I mean Nations) Votes To Condemn Israel For Defending Themselves Against Three Months Of Terror Attacks From Hamas In The Gaza Strip!

New post on Now The End Begins

The United Nations Votes To Condemn Israel For Defending Themselves Against 3 Months Of Terror Attacks From Hamas In Gaza Strip

by Geoffrey Grider


The United Nations overwhelmingly voted in favor of a resolution on Wednesday condemning Israel for using "excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate" force in Gaza following several fatal clashes along Israel's border in recent weeks.

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." Zechariah 12:9 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Bible says repeatedly that it is God's desire to 'gather the nations' of the world, so that they will have free reign to come against His Holy City of Jerusalem, and against His chosen people, the Jews. The gathering of the nations as seen in the body of the United Nations, unique in world history, have indeed assembled themselves against the Lord and against His Christ. During the time of Jacob's trouble, the UN will be lead by none other than Antichrist himself, and God will lead all those nations into the Battle of Armageddon who the sole purpose of being slaughter while the whole world watches at the Second Coming. Yesterday's vote against Israel is simply more confirmation of the coming future of the United Nations. 
"Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy." Zephaniah 3:8 (KJV)
The bid brought forward by Algeria, Turkey and Palestine, was passed in the United Nations General Assembly with a 120 to 8 vote, and featured 45 abstentions. The US, Israel, Australia, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Togo and the Solomon Islands voted against the measure.
The resolution stated it "deplores the use of any excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate force by the Israeli forces against Palestinian civilians in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and particularly in the Gaza Strip," citing Israel's use of live ammunition against protesters and the deaths of a journalist and medical personnel.
The resolution condemned the "firing of rockets from the Gaza Strip against Israeli civilian areas," which have increased following clashes, and requested the UN secretary general submit a written response regarding the safety of the Palestinian civilian population.
The votes reflected wide concern in the 193-member world body that the resolution sponsored by Arab and Islamic nations was one-sided and failed to even mention Hamas, which has fired over 100 rockets at Israel.
The U.S. amendment to condemn Hamas, which was voted on first, was approved by a vote of 62-58 with 42 abstentions. General Assembly President Miroslav Lajcak declared that under U.N. rules a two-thirds vote was needed so the amendment failed.
The assembly then voted on the original Palestinian-backed resolution which was approved by a vote of 120-8 with 45 abstentions.

Amazing Things Happening In Persia As The Church Continues To Grow In Iran Despite Much Persecution!

The Church In Iran - Persecution And Growth!

Since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, the mullahs of Iran have maintained a stranglehold on the country at every level, and the past decade has seen an increasingly strict crackdown on religious freedom in the theocratic nation. The biggest threat to the absolute rule of Islam in Iran? Christianity. 
A few churches have been registered and monitored while others were forced to shut down. Bibles are routinely confiscated, and their owners fined or jailed. Public practice of Christianity, including weddings, has been met with arrests and violence. But despite the desperate attempts of the Islamic regime in Tehran to stamp out it out, Iran now leads the world in the growth of Christianity.
In 2017, Operation World reported that the number of Christians in Iran saw a 19.6% rise in 2016 alone. Elam Ministries, whose goal is to expand the Church throughout Iran and beyond, reports that in the late 90s, there may have been as few as 2,000 to 5,000 Christians, but that number has risen to an estimated 300,000 to 1 million now. There is significant uncertainty around that exact figure because as the Islamic government of Iran has persecuted Christians and shut down churches, the growth has come from so-called "house churches". 

Thousands upon thousands of smaller worship services in homes across Iran have fueled an incredible groundswell of Christian faith unlike few other places in the world. So why is Christianity growing in Iran, a country that notoriously ranks 8th for persecution of Christians? One factor is the corruption and failure of the Iranian government. The Mullahs hold power and administer the country according to the principles of Islam. Thus, when the economy falters, when corruption is exposed time and time again, when poverty persists, when crime rises and when Iran lags behind the region in development, Iranians associate these failures to the rule of Islam. 

If Islam as a political, judicial and social system is followed completely and society suffers, it is only logical to conclude that Islam is not perfect. This doubt has opened the door to the Gospel and allowed Muslims in Iran to open their hearts to Jesus. Apostasy by Iranian Muslims can carry the death penalty, as can the vague crime of "insulting the Prophet". The Islamic regime has declared house churches to be illegal gatherings, actively searches for former-Muslims to imprison and has begun widely to interpret the practice of other faiths as "insulting the Prophet". 

Despite this tightened grip on the population, the Church still grows, as contrasted with Iraq, where the Christian population has dwindled from 1.3 million just 15 years ago to under 300,000 today. Iran's Christian population is projected by CCM Ministries to grow to as many as 7 million by the year 2020. CCM Ministries has been at the epicenter of the house church movement in Iran and its founder Mani Erfan calls the resurgence of Christianity an "awakening". "It's an astronomical increase, and it's been predominantly young people. The youth have been restless and have looked toward an alternative to the regime and Islam. It's become a counter-revolution to the Iranian Revolution." 

To the youth of Iran, Western culture and Christianity represent a powerful attraction away from the culture of repression and deprivation of the Islamic Mullahs. Millions may now accept Christianity, a religion of faith and of hope, as salvation from Islam. Though the numbers of converts may be difficult to pinpoint precisely, there is no doubt that the tremendous growth of Christianity in the Islamic Republic of Iran has the potential dramatically to reshape the geopolitics not only of Iran but of the entire Middle East region.

After Singapore Success, Trump To Send Jared Kushner And Mideast Peace Negotiating Team To Israel, Egypt And Saudi Arabia!

New post on Now The End Begins

After Singapore Success, Trump To Send Jared Kushner And Mideast Peace Negotiating Team To Israel, Egypt And Saudi Arabia

by Geoffrey Grider


The White House says President Donald Trump’s Mideast negotiating team will visit the region next week as it finalizes its as-yet unveiled Israeli-Palestinian peace plan and will hold talks on deteriorating conditions in the Gaza Strip. The trip comes as officials say the Trump administration is near completion of the plan with an eye on a possible release this summer.

"And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:" Daniel 9:27 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: Fresh off his success with leading North Korea down the path of denuclearization, President Trump has decided to dispatch Jared Kushner and the entire Mideast peace team to the Middle East to seeing about getting Israel and the Palestinians to sign a peace covenant. Making peace with North Korea gets you Nobel Peace Prize, but being the one who makes a peace covenant between Israel and the Palestinians gets you awarded a completely different type of prize. And it's not a good one. 
The National Security Council said Wednesday that Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and special representative for international negotiations Jason Greenblatt would travel to Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. It said they would discuss “the next stages of the peace effort” and get ideas from regional leaders about “remaining questions the White House peace team has.”
No stop in the Palestinian territories is planned, although the NSC said the itinerary may be expanded. However, the prospect of Palestinian interest in the peace proposal appears dim. Peace talks have been frozen since 2014, and Palestinian leaders have been boycotting high-level talks with U.S. officials for months, complaining that the Trump is biased toward Israel.
U.S. officials had said in late May that the administration was aiming to release the peace plan shortly after the Muslim holy month of Ramadan ends later this week. However, that timeline appears to have been pushed back to at least August, the same officials said Wednesday.
The Kushner, Greenblatt trip comes at a particularly fraught time in U.S.-Palestinian relations, which have plummeted since Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capitaland moved the U.S. embassy to the holy city from Tel Aviv.
On Sunday, Greenblatt lashed out at the Palestinians’ veteran chief negotiator, saying his “false claims” and angry rhetoric haven’t brought peace closer. The negotiator, Saeb Erekat, had earlier accused American officials of acting as “spokespeople” for Israel and criticized the U.S. for moving the embassy.

In an op-ed published in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper, Greenblatt wrote that Erekat’s claims “were in many respects simply inaccurate” and suggested it was time for him to step down.

“Dr. Erekat — we have heard your voice for decades and it has not achieved anything close to Palestinian aspirations or anything close to a comprehensive peace agreement. Other Palestinian perspectives might help us finally achieve a comprehensive peace agreement where Palestinian and Israeli lives can be better,” Greenblatt wrote.
Erekat had condemned the U.S. for the embassy move noting it occurred amid violence along the Gaza border, just 70 miles away. On the day of its opening in Jerusalem, an estimated 59 Palestinians were killed in Gaza at a mass rally led by the Islamic militant group Hamas, which rules the territory.
He said the contrast between the two events that day “aptly demonstrates the complete U.S. and Israeli denial of the Palestinian history of dispossession.”
Greenblatt denounced that comment.
“For far too long, the United States has turned a deaf ear to such words, but ignoring hateful and false words has not brought peace and it will never bring peace,” he wrote. “While some protesters were peaceful, many were quite violent. In fact, by Hamas’ own admission, more than 80 percent of those killed were Hamas operatives.” source

Turkey's Evil President Erdogan Threatens to Reignite Christian-Islamic War!!

Erdogan was scathing of the Austrian announcement and seemed to threaten severe reprisals. “These measures taken by the Austrian prime minister [Sebastian Kurz] are, I fear, leading the world towards a war between the cross and the crescent."


ANOTHER OF THE FACELESS ONES (Man behind the brain frying 5G Network)

Dear Friends, 

This video gives a thumbnail of the nuts and bolts of something that's been hiding under our noses for longer than we've been alive. Once seen, it cannot be unseen. It is the true nature of the so-called "Special Relationship" between the US and the UK.

Most Americans are lulled by a sense that the British power structure is friendly to the people of the US. Great pains have been taken over a long period of time to promote this idea, from Hollywood films to the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But if we peel the scales off our eyes, we will discover that the psychological warfare now being waged against the US populace through the Mainstream Media, ranging from "Russian Collusion" to allegations of Syrian President Assad's "gas attacks" have all been executed by British Intelligence or their contractors.

The seemingly Tinfoil Hat notion that the US lost the Revolutionary War of freedom from British rule during the War of 1812 and that the Crown dictates policy (and almost everything else) in both countries was probably first explained in detail by Dr. John Coleman, author of the 1992 book, The Conspirator's Hierarchy: The Committee of 300, which I read the year it was released and that you can read for free here.

The Digital Age has now enabled many more of the gory details to be uncovered by a team of dedicated researchers associated and 

Michael McKibben joins Douglas Gabriel for this fully-gripping, paradigm-shifting conversation, where we learn that, "The Crown appears to both direct and shill for the Senior Executive Service (SES), Serco, Crown Agents, Rio Tinto, Urenco, Uranium One, Lockheed Martin, BAE, OPIC, USAID, USTDA, MCC, DoD, State Department, Patent Office, Commerce Department, HHS, DOE, DoE, NSA, CIA, FBI, DOJ, TheCityofLondonUK, Gates Foundation, GSC, Wall Street and Silicon Valley. Too incredible to be true? We thought so too, but the facts say otherwise."

Indeed, before you research the facts for yourself, the very idea sounds like the ravings of a paranoid schizophrenic but listen to Michael McKibben in this video and you'll come away with an understanding of our chaotic world over the past 50 years that is finally coherent.

We're introduced to Sir Geoffrey Pattie (pictured above), who few outside the UK have ever heard of but he is probably the closest thing the world has ever seen to a real "Dr. Evil". The 5G rollout is basically the crowning of his lifework.

Appointed to Parliament in 1970 and employed by the British Government through 1987, Pattie was Minister of Defence, Minister of State for Industry with responsibility for Science, Civil Aviation, Space and Technology and was a member of the Queen's Privy Council. He was then knighted by the Queen and went on to be part of the movement to privatize and develop companies and to cash in on all of these connections.

Pattie was central in the founding of Serco. Michael McKibben states, "There is a very clear link, in all that activity to the Senior Executive Service in the United States and especially Serco, which...was just given a $610 million dollar contract to manage FEMA Region 9 [California, Nevada, Arizona]. In addition to the fact that they now process all of our patents in the United States, they manage 56 of our air traffic control towers...they're heavily involved in this development of 5G, they're involved in our Naval warfare strategies, they have massive contracts, probably totaling about $6 billion dollars that's on the books. It just goes on and on. Clearly, the link between Cambridge Analytica and Sir Geoffrey is 100% and so therefore, we then can see that all of these machinations that are occurring in the media are all rolling up to Sir Geoffrey and the Queen's Privy Council."

FUTURE SHOCK: Citibank Warns That 10,000 Employees Will Be Replaced By Robot Workers Over The Next Five Years!!

FUTURE SHOCK: Citibank Warns That 10,000 Employees Will Be Replaced By Robot Workers Over The Next 5 Years

by Geoffrey Grider


Citigroup's investment bank could automate as many as 10,000 jobs within the next five years, a chilling forecast warns.

EDITOR'S NOTE: In the interest of full disclosure, I worked doing UI/UX design at Citibank in Jacksonville, Florida, from 2011-2013. At that time, I saw a company that was spending hundreds of millions of dollars to stay current in the ever-changing field of technology. Spread out over 3 massive buildings, there were thousands of workers in rotating shifts, and was open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. There are lots of companies in the United States at this size with this type of outsized, bloated budgets for salaries, benefits and all the rest. So the idea of replacing these workers with AI robots is far too tempting to pass up. We stand right now on the precipice of a massive paradigm shift that will see hyper-aware robots and AI technology not only merging with society by forcing out human workers from all sorts of positions. 
Technology and operational positions were the 'most fertile for machine processing,' according to Jamie Forese, chief executive officer of Citibank institutional clients group. Forese suggested to the Financial Times that the company would shed up to half its 20,000 operational positions as machines supplant humans at a faster pace.
The bank would hire people in other areas such as sales and research. 'What people are doing, the type of work being done by the human rather than the machine will change,' Forese said. A move to automation by Citibank would follow larger trends across the banking industry.
From 2007 to 2017 nearly 60,000 jobs were eliminated from eight of the world’s top 10 investment banks, according to the FT. Five robots replaced seven employees at a St. Galler Kantonalbank (SGKB) bank in Switzerland order to speed up workflow last month.
The robots were able to do the same work as a human employee but could work 24/7 without a break, making them overall more effective. The pilot project at went so well the bank decided to take on more robots.
Last year a report found that as many as 800 million workers could be replaced by machines in just 13 years. A study by GFT Technologies SE in 2017 found that technologies and artificial intelligence could revolutionize the financial sector.
Researchers carried out a survey of 285 professionals from retail banks in eight countries. They found 94 percent of participants said artificial intelligence directly added value to their company.
A report from November last year found hundreds of millions of jobs in a variety of sectors are at risk.
Jobs most likely to be taken include fast-food workers and machine-operators, while gardeners, plumbers and childcare workers are the least likely to be replaced by bots, according to the report. source

STILL WINNING: Kim Jong-Un Commits To ‘Complete Denuclearization’ As President Trump Scores Historic Win At Singapore Summit

by Geoffrey Grider


Kim Jong-un affirmed an 'unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula' in a signed document on Tuesday, President Donald Trump says.

'We're prepared to start a new history, and we're ready to write a new chapter between our two nations,' he told a packed room of reporters at a press conference in Singapore.
Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program will come to an end, he predicted, claiming that Kim had already left Singapore and was 'on his way back' to North Korea to begin implementing their joint vows.
'I believe he's going to live up to that document,' Trump said. 'Our eyes are wide open, but peace is always worth the effort, especially in this case.'
Trump said he knows 'for a fact that as soon as he arrives' in Pyongyang Kim is 'going to start a process that makes a lot of people very happy' even though the statement that his White House provided to press made no mention of an agreed upon timetable for denuclearization.
'He wants to do that. This isn't the past. This isn't another administration that never got it started and therefore never got it done,' Trump said, tweaking the Obama administration.
The U.S. president told reporters that he became convinced that Kim was serious when he agreed to dismantle a sophisticated missile engine testing site. 'We're much further along than I would have thought.'
At the same time, he agreed that there are no guarantees that Kim will tear apart what he called 'a very substantial arsenal.' 'Can you ensure anything?' he asked. 'All I can say is: They want to make a deal. ... Can anybody be certain? But we're going to be certain soon because the negotiations continue.'
'I may be wrong,' he allowed. 'I may stand before you in six months and say, "Hey, I was wrong." ' And then with a sly smile, Trump joked: 'I don't know that I'll ever admit that, but I'll find some kind of an excuse.'

The president said he had been working around the clock helping to cement the terms of what he hopes will be an iron-clad agreement that Kim will honor. That would mark a change from North Korea's past performance on pacts with the West.

'I haven't slept in 25 hours, but I thought it was important to do,' he said, animated as ever in gesture and vocal cadence.'
Trump made no promises about relaxing the economic sanctions that have strangled the hermit kingdom for years yet said he was 'actually looking forward to taking them off' if Kim follows through on his commitments.
He speculated about exchanging ambassadors with North Korea 'hopefully soon' but cautioned that 'it's a little bit early for that.'
A first step would be a White House invitation.  The U.S. president again said he's open to inviting Kim to the U.S. and visiting Pyongyang himself.  'At a certain time, I will,' he said of a conversation with Kim in the Oval Office.
He also projected that hostilities between the North and South 'will soon end' because 'the past does not have to define the future.'
'Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace. The current state of affairs cannot continue forever,' Trump proclaimed in his second news conference this week on foreign soil. source
