Did you know that the U.S. state that produces the most vegetables is going through the worst drought it has ever experienced and that the size of the total U.S. cattle herd is now the smallest that it has been since 1951?
What does the Bible have to say about Europe. After all, if there is a God, then wouldn’t God know what will happen in the future? As Isaac Newton once said, the future is merely history that has happened yet. History to God, and our job to discover if God has informed us about it before hand. The Bible says that Europe will rise again in the very end time to become a dominate power in the world. Europe will replace the United States as the greatest superpower, but it will not replace our leadership. Europe will become a demon-posed, evil empire, ruled by an antichrist and under the authority of the Roman Church. America, on the other hand, is destined to become a conquered land, where the fragment of ancient Israelites living here, in captivity - with no freedom or rights. Aliens will rule the land, and we will be a nation in poverty and crime.
When we read the prophecies of Daniel 2, 7, 8 and 11 with the historical and prophetic contexts of Revelation 13 , 17 and 18, we read predictions from God that Europe will rise up one last time as a church-state union with significant power, based on future global economic impact.
by Lynn E. Torrance Read this astounding, yet brief, PROOF from history. You'll be shocked to find WHY facts of history have been suppressed -- WHY the Bible has been falsely labeled "unscientific."
DID YOU KNOW that the Abraham of your Bible was a skilled scientist, astronomer, and mathematician?
And that for nearly 4,000 years the world has sought to hide this astounding fact?
Today vain, would-be scientists ridicule the Bible. The world in which Abraham lived is made to appear backward and ignorant. Abraham is labeled, falsely, "a mythological hero"!
But the plain, irrefutable record of history proves this modern claim just another fable! The world of Abraham's day was enlightened, had already discovered physical knowledge which it took modern science nearly 4,000 years to rediscover.
“The truth is like a lion, just turn it loose and it will defend itself.”

Hollywood is at it again. They are continuously mocking God and His Word only to show the American people how dead set they are against God and His rule. You see friends, Hollywood is offended by “The Rock of Offense” that exposes them for who they are; and because of this, they then attempt to manipulate scripture by giving America their twisted version of the patriarch “Noah” (that looks just like them). To prove my point, self avowed atheist and director Daren Aronofsky said that his movie “Noah” is the “least biblical, biblical film” (Psalm 14:1).
It is sad to say that there are some professed Christians that apparently have never taken the time to read the Bible...........

(Hollywood Reporter) “Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War” aims to “prove to the viewer that he was silenced because his views didn’t go along with the status quo,” says the filmmaker.
A film in the works now and aiming for a release date next year makes the case that Gen. George Patton, who died three months after the end of World War II, was assassinated, perhaps by the KGB, due to his outspoken opposition to Communism and the former USSR.
The feature-length documentary, dubbed Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War, is from writer-director Robert Orlando. The filmmaker’s most recent movie, A Polite Bribe, is about the Apostle Paul and set for release through VCI/Cinedigm on Tuesday.
Fox News tonight mentioned this day in history — Monday, April 11 — as the day in 1951 when President Harry Truman caused an uproar by firing Gen. Douglas MacArthur as the commander of United Nations troops fighting the communists in Korea.
Such moments in history are important, especially when they refer back to great events and great personages, like Douglas MacArthur.
“Politicians brought the Nazis to power and started the war. They are the ones who brought about these disgusting crimes.”
– Karl Doenitz, German admiral and would-be fuehrer after Hitler
On Nov. 20, 1945, the Nuremberg Trials began, bringing Hitler’s Nazi criminals to justice. By this time, several countries were destroyed, and 50 million people, 2.5 percent of the world’s population, lost their lives – including 12 million Jews, German dissidents, political opposition, intellectuals and others who were exterminated in Nazi concentration camps.
The world watched in horror as in the courtroom filled with Nazi criminals was played video footage of famished men, women and children who were mercilessly shot, starved and/or tortured, and then thrown carelessly into mass graves, all because they did not fall in line with the ideology of Adolf Hitler.

Tragedies and sorrows abound. The tragedy in Newton Connecticut... sorrows in Aurora Colorado and places around the world we have never even heard of. What's it all mean, and how can anyone cope with the pressure of an evil world. One thing I have learned over the years is that people face tragedy differently. Some can't handle their sorrowful times, and just “tune out.” These people will not face reality no matter what the consequences. Others, jump into the face of tragedy and fight with everything they have to stay sane. Many turn to God, and others to “religion.” Often some go into a morbid period of denial. I can very well understand the parents of those 20 children slaughtered the other day fitting into one of the categories above. My hope is that they turn to God for help, but many may not. It is sad, but the world we live in is not God's world. The apostle Paul said that this world is ruled by the Devil and his demons masquerading as false ministers of Christ who pray on those in distress and lead many to despair. He says in 2 Corinthians 4:4 that, “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” Some have such a difficult time grasping the practical this concept- that this is not God's world, perhaps because we think of God as Creator and marvel at the staggering beauty of what God has made. In that sense it is His world. But the society is not. In 1 John 2:16, John writes, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the.” William Barclay in his commentary on this verse writes, "To John the world was nothing other than pagan society with its false values and its false gods" (p. 56).
Today is Firstfruits. This is the day after the last Day of Passover Week (or the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a 7 day Festival of God) Today, a special Sabbath starts the count to Pentecost (50 days from today).
The firstfruits of God's plan are those who are called now, in this age, and are having their minds and attitudes changed to become like Jesus Christ through God's Spirit working within them.
The apostle James noted that God has "brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures [i.e., of those He's created]" (James 1:18).
Paul well understood that those called and converted in this age between man's creation and Christ's second coming are the firstfruits of God's plan for the salvation of humanity. He referred to several first-century Christians as the firstfruits of God's calling in specific locations (Romans 16:5; 1 Corinthians 16:15). Looking ahead to the resurrection of those who remain faithful to their calling, he said, "We also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption [that is, full rights of sonship], the redemption of our body" (Romans 8:23).
However, the firstfruits of God's plan, those who are called now, find themselves in a vastly different situation from that of those who will follow in the later spiritual harvest period.
Jesus said that those who are His followers in this age are not to be "of the world, just as I am not of the world" (John 17:16). They are called out of the world and are expected to develop the character of Christ, while the rest of mankind is deceived (Revelation 12:9) and following values abhorrent to Christ (1 John 2:15-17 ).
The Rise of the Coming Beast from Europe... (Revelation...)
WASHINGTON – There may be a strengthened German-Russian axis developing from the crisis over Ukraine, even as the influence of the U.S. and specifically its campaign to unite Europe behind American leadership under the NATO flag diminishes, regional analysts have concluded.
“NATO currently lacks a credible ‘mission’ and therefore a justification for defense expenditures,” said Alastair Crooke, who heads the Conflicts Forum and formerly was with the British MI6 intelligence service. This, even though he contends, “Ukraine has just provided NATO with an ostensible cause to strengthen the Estonia to Azerbaijan ‘Maginot’ line, and so to reformulate its mission. Unlike the German chancellor, the ‘defense industry’s’ interest is to keep tensions with Russia rising.”
Central to our understanding of the biblical Feast of Unleavened Bread is the realization that the resurrected Jesus Christ lives His life in every individual Christian.
Growing numbers of Christians around the world are discovering and celebrating the biblical festivals outlined in Leviticus 23. By looking at the symbolism associated with these days, they are coming to view them in light of the life and mission of Jesus Christ.
After all, Jesus Christ Himself commenced the acting out of the plan of salvation by becoming our sacrificial Passover lamb. As the apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 5:7, "For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us" (compare Isaiah 53:7-9 ; 1 Peter 1:18-19 ). Furthermore, Jesus started His Church on another of these festivals, the Feast of Pentecost (Acts 2). He must have considered them important.
During the spring of the year (March-April in the northern hemisphere), immediately after Passover and before the Feast of Pentecost, falls another biblical feast—the seven-day Feast of Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:6-8 ; Exodus 12:17-18 ). Here we'll take a brief look at the greatest event to have ever taken place during this feast—and what it means for Christians today.

All Our Founding Fathers Opposed Homosexual Sin: Fearing God, and wanting the USA to be blessed by God and not cursed, our Founding Fathers made Christian laws for our nation. God says, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” Obeying God, our Founding Fathers shamed sin. George Washington court martialed homosexuals. He forbid this sin in the military and said: “…the Commander in Chief… with Abhorrence and Detestation of such Infamous Crimes [sodomy]…”
Good for the environment, composting may be the single most important supplement added to your garden soil. Compost is nutrient-rich humus that fuels plant growth, suppresses disease, and revitalizes depleted soils, all while recycling your kitchen scraps. Done right, it can boost your garden productivity, saving you hundreds of dollars in fresh, organic produce costs.
Rather than spend a few hundred dollars on a compost tumbler, below are step-by-step plans for making your own.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), who introduced legislation last year to eliminate the US government’s ban on growing hemp in accordance with state laws, last week introduced two bills that would remove US government restrictions on the sale of raw milk and raw milk products. The two new bills are the Milk Freedom Act (HR 4307) and the Interstate Milk Freedom Act (HR 4308).
Raw milk and raw milk products, such as cheese and butter, are distinguished from other milk and milk products by having not been pasteurized. People may seek out raw milk and raw milk products for a variety of reasons, including because they desire better taste and nutrition.
The US government’s war on raw milk has real victims. Dan Allgyer is one example. Allgyer, an Amish farmer in Pennsylvania, was forced to shut down his Rainbow Acres Farms in 2012 after a US district court judge ruled Allgyer had violated US law by selling to a buyers group in Washington, DC that the US Food and Drug Administration had infiltrated in a sting operation. Indeed, Rep. Chelli Pingree (D-ME), the lead Democrat cosponsor of the raw milk bills condemns the US government’s overzealous enforcement in explaining her support for the bills:
Once again, we must go to foreign newspapers to find the truth about tobacco.....
The tobacco plant’s natural defence mechanisms could be harnessed to kill cancer cells in the human body.
Scientists have identified a molecule in the flower of the plant that usually fights off fungi and bacteria - and were stunned to find it also has the ability to identify and destroy cancer.
Called NaD1, it works by forming a pincer-like structure that grips onto lipids present in the membrane of cancer cells and rips themopen, causing the cell to expel its contents and explode.
The flower of the Nicotiana planet, in which researchers have identified a molecule that usually fights off fungi and bacteria also has the ability to identify and destroy cancer
HOW IT WORKS
Called NaD1, the moecule works by forming a pincer-like structure that grips onto lipids present in the membrane of cancer cells.
The structure then effectively rips them open, causing the cell to expel its contents and explode, rendering them unable to cause damage.
‘There is some irony in the fact that a powerful defence mechanism against cancer is found in the flower of a species of ornamental tobacco plant, but this is a welcome discovery, whatever the origin,’ Dr Mark Hulett of the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science in Melbourne said.
‘The next step is to undertake pre-clinical studies to determine what role NaD1 might be able to play in treating cancer.'
The preclinical work is being conducted by the Melbourne biotechnology company Hexima.
'So far the preliminary trials have looked promising,' said Dr Hulett.

If you thought you knew everything about NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, think again. When the 32-year-old sat down with AOL.com's Brian Balthazar, the most successful professional female race car driver in history revealed five things that might surprise you.
1. Danica has anxiety behind the wheel
She may have the ultimate control on the speedway when she's suited up for a big race, but when she's going to the grocery store in a civilian car the anxiety sets in. "I'm very impatient. I have physical anxiety when riding in a car with someone or driving," says Patrick. She explains that even if she's got her own two hands on the wheel she's still got that need for speed. "If I can't get my way through or if somebody's driving next to someone who won't go... bumper-to-bumper traffic doesn't bother me because there's nothing I can do about it. But if I see open road in front of the car that's in front of me, I get very frustrated... Go!" Take notes, people. If you see Danica Patrick in the rear view mirror? Move!
2. Danica drives crazier than her racer boyfriend
Yes, she's the female face of NASCAR, but there's nothing girly about her behind the wheel. She tells AOL.com that when it comes to driving off the track the only person she'll cede the wheel to is her boyfriend, fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. "My boyfriend is a race car driver so then now we have a whole new scenario. I drive a lot more crazy on the road than him so I let him get the tickets potentially, not me." How considerate!
In his Kremlin defense of Russia's annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond.
Crimea, said Putin, "is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus."
Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying.
This speech recalls last December's address where the former KGB chief spoke of Russia as standing against a decadent West:
"Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation."
Heard any Western leader, say, Barack Obama, talk like that lately? More>>>>>>>
The story of a man building a giant wooden boat to help his family and the entire animal kingdom survive a terrifying flood is one of the more contentious parts of the Bible.
But research by physics students suggests that a structure on the scale of Noah's ark as described in the ancient text could have been built.
And what's more, they say it would have been buoyant even with two of every animal on Earth on board.
However, while the ark would have stayed afloat they're not sure if every animal would have fit inside.
A group of fourth year master's students from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leicester calculated that Noah's ark, built to accommodate at least two of every animal species, would have floated using the dimensions ordained in the Bible
In the book of Genesis, Chapter 6:13-22, Noah is commanded to build an ark to survive a flood.
