  • Kerry Hints at One Last Mideast Peace Push Before Obama Term Ends

    (CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State John Kerry has hinted that he may be involved in one final push on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, amid growing speculation – and concern among Israel supporters – that President Obama may use the period between next week’s election and the end of his administration to break the deadlock. The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that according to administration sources, “the White House has asked the State Department to develop an options menu for the president’s final weeks.” It said the possibilities could include supporting – or not vetoing – a U.N. Security Council resolution...

    Noah and Lot. The Lord described the days that would herald His return by using these two examples. In Noah's Day, people were blissfully ignorant of the worldwide tragedy that would befall them and they continued on in their daily lives. They married. They gave in marriage. They fell victim to the "Normalcy Bias" to which John has frequently referred. You know the one. Dig hole in sand, insert head, repeat. Then there's Lot. Remember his struggles? He's the guy who lived in a city where not only were they stuck in the "normalcy bias", every form of sexual perversion...

    This week, John looks at the Push for Peace in the Middle East, specifically the Quartet (US, EU, Russia and the UN) who are accelerating their push to divide up the land that was given to Israel by God Himself. That, dear friends, is never a good idea, as God will not be mocked and He will impart judgment on those who threaten the peace and security of Israel. With the Huffington Post's article on "Jesus, the First Transgender" and the Harvard meeting on creating a synthetic human genome, it is even more clear that we are spiraling out of...

Did you ever wonder why the Obama administration was so opposed to the Keystone pipeline, insisting that oil be carried by rail from the Canadian Sand Flats? And now, suspicious wildfires threaten those very oil operations to the point where rail traffic may be suspended, likely eliminating the world's crude oil glut and driving prices back up?

    In a world where things seem to be falling apart, it may be that things are actually falling into place just as God planned, and just as He warned us in Scripture. In this week's update entitled "Falling Apart / Falling Into Place" John looks at things that seemingly do not make sense. Men in women's bathrooms, a failing global economy in a crude oil glut, increased persecution of the Jewish state and an attempt to take back the Golan Heights and even massive shipping vessels being sold for less than the price of a Starbucks "vente" coffee. And then...

    Things are not falling apart -- they are falling into place. If Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not knowing the signs of His first coming, why would we not be expected to be aware of today's apocalyptic signs? Here are some of the top prophetic developments of 2015. 1) Israel's worsening isolation. (Zechariah 12:3) The Left in America under Barack Obama abandoned her some years ago. With the defeat of Canada's Stephen Harper, Israel was left only with some evangelical Christians spread around the world. She has no superpower backing. 2) The "days of Noah" are back.

False prophets are making inroads into the evangelical church and millions are being led astray by the nonsense that they spew.

    Vatican City (AFP) - The Vatican's first accord with the Palestinians -- an agreement that Israel has attacked as counter-productive to the Middle East peace process -- has come into force, the Holy See announced Saturday. The accord was signed in June, just over two years after the Roman Catholic Church recognised the Palestinian territories as a sovereign state in February 2013. The accord covers the operation of the Church in areas of the Holy Land under Palestinian control but its significance has been seen in broader terms as a symbol of growing international backing for a Palestinian state. "With...

    It should be obvious to the majority whose eyes are open that we are likely not returning to the days where morality, discernment and common sense were attributes which were pursued with a purpose. It is sobering, yet amazing to consider the rapid downward spiral we are experiencing as a nation, as right becomes wrong, and wrong becomes right. With American leadership making no bones about its bias in favor of Islam and against traditional Christianity, believers need to get used to this fact and deal with a new paradigm that Judeo-Christian beliefs and values are no longer held in...

    Since the "War to End All Wars", American leadership in the world has not only been a stabilizing force for peace but it has been a staunch protector of the Israeli people since she returned to her land in 1948. Now, however, things have drastically changed. Current American leadership has weakened our economy, opened our borders, ransacked our military, abandoned our allies, lectured the American people and denigrated those who follow Christ. At the same time, they have bolstered our enemies, empowered renegade leaders, back-stabbed Israel and promoted Islam. Has our government lost its collective mind, or are we seeing...

But the opposite seems more likely. After a drawn-out confrontation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the Iranian nuclear deal, the White House seems to have little appetite for what would almost certainly be a new round of tensions with the Israeli leader over the terms of Palestinian statehood. With the odds of success slim and U.S....

U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran. Until recently, the Obama administration had...

    As the Middle East erupts in flames and as his foreign policy scheme is burned up with it, President Obama refused a meeting with Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and instead went on the David Letterman show. One might think the President's neglect of his duty was a bad thing, but apparently it was perfectly fine with CNN's Wolf Blitzer. On Sept. 19, during an America's Choice 2012 segment on CNN's Newsroom, Wolf Blitzer was full of words of understanding for Obama's choice of Letterman over Israel's Prime Minister. It just made good sense, Blitzer imagined, for Obama to ignore his duties...
