The Migrant Crisis
The migrant crisis is one of the major news items in the past month as many thousands of people are fleeing Middle Eastern countries where they are in great danger. There are ominous suggestions that there is more to this crisis than meets the eye. The consequences of it may be felt in many countries for years to come.
Aside from the migrant crisis there are important meetings happening at the United Nations and in the U.S. in attempts to deal with serious problems. Students of Bible prophecy should have their eyes wide open and be looking in to the Word to understand the importance of what is happening.
Note that I am simply sharing items of interest. That does not imply that I agree with everything presented or with other material that may be on a source's other web pages.

ISIS smuggler: 'We will use refugee crisis to infiltrate West'
4,000 covert terrorists already in place 'awaiting' orders
As the migrant-train standoff entered its second day in Hungary, with thousands of mostly Syrian refugees seeking passage to Germany, it's time the West recognized this shift in Muslim populations for what it is, say American activists who have been warning of a "fifth column" for years.
Author Robert Spencer wrote Sept. 4 in Front Page Magazine, "This is no longer just a 'refugee crisis.' This is a hijrah."
Hijrah is the Islamic doctrine of migration, which is a form of stealth jihad.
"To emigrate in the cause of Allah - that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act," Spencer wrote. He cited the following Quranic text:
"And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance," says the Quran. "And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful" (Quran 4:100).
And now, looking at Europe and America, a migration invasion of a much greater magnitude is underway.
Evidence of that invasion came in February when an ISIS operative confirmed what many already suspected - the Islamic State is using the refugee crisis to form a fifth column of Muslim fighters inside Western nations.Click here to read it all
Migrant Crisis: The Footage the Media Refuses to broadcast
Why are mainstream media outlets like CNN and BBC only broadcasting footage which shows the migrants in a positive light?
Ray's Note: Below is a cartoon related to the migrant crisis issue.
The Saudi daily Makkah Newspaper published a cartoon - widely shared on social media - that showed a man in traditional Gulf clothing looking out of a door with barbed wire around it and pointing at door with the EU flag on it.
"Why don't you let them in, you discourteous people?!" he says.
Will Google's New Robot Be Used To Hunt "Non-Cooperative" Humans?
By Voice of Reason
George Orwell's 1984 was prophetic in ways beyond imaginable about a society that became not such a fun place right? He talked about an awful police state, kind of like the one we are moving toward at light speed ... only correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall even 1984 having Humanoid Robots Capable of Hunting Down Humans Through the Woods, or mechanical attack dogs that might also be used in the near future to hunt humans.
THINK OF HOW MUCH GOOGLE KNOWS ABOUT YOU ...
First of all, if what I am saying is sounds crazy, when anyone can give me a rationale explanation as to why Google (of all companies) has androids that can hunt down human beings, I might entertain the thought that I am being overly suspicious. Until then, I'm much more inclined to say you are overly UNDER-INFORMED! You dig? I have facts on my side, and I'm about to share… feel free to dispute me all you want ... but facts must be disputed with facts, not platitudes, so if you don't read the links, don't expect a response.
Why don't we start out with something light to advance my comment that Google and Uncle Sam are in bed by first introducing you to Google's mechanical attack dog, that I'm SURE will never be weaponized in any way. PSHT! Like, that would be crazy right? Yeah, ok. Stay tuned. When you find out who is pulling the strings, and inventing this crazy stuff, see if sounds crazy then…
Meet Spot. Spot is a four-legged robot designed for indoor and outdoor operation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. Spot has a sensor head that helps it navigate and negotiate rough terrain. Spot weighs about 160 lbs. Spot can shake off a human kicking him while trying to escape (even on ice). Doesn't that sound sweet?
A new robot designed for the US Army by Google fits the criteria of a 2008 Pentagon request for the development of a system which could detect and track "non-cooperative" humans in "pursuit/evasion scenarios".
Towards Global Sunday Law
Several thousand years ago, the king of Babylon decreed that his subjects must worship only in the way he saw fit.
Three Jewish men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, chose to follow their consciences, standing up against the king and his edict. Thus began a standoff that remains famous even to this day (see Daniel 3).
Unfortunately, we are seeing the same situation repeating itself today.
The Pope is calling for the world to acknowledge and honor Sunday as a day of rest. Legislation that will force the world to worship and rest on Sunday would be the ideal solution. There are many voices clamoring to fulfill exactly such a goal, using the economy, the environment, and even the family as reasons to legislate Sunday rest.
Another standoff is on the horizon. Those who refuse to give up the Biblical seventh-day Sabbath will face trials as tough as the furnace faced by Shadrach and his companions. However, we can hold fast hope, knowing that the God who spared the Israelite men from the fiery furnace is coming again soon.
Here are some of the ways the world is moving towards Sunday legislation:Click here to read it all

Pope's New Sunday Keeping Appeal
amazingdiscoveries.org, Aug 14, 2015
Prior to his September visit to the United States, Pope Francis has laid bare his deep devotion and promotion of Sunday keeping. Pastor Doug Batchelor examines the pope's recent radio address and asks, "Could this be yet another step in the fulfillment of last-day prophecy?" Find out in this eye-opening video. (10-minutes)
Ray's note: The two articles above both suggest that there is a move towards the idea of keeping Sunday holy. To many readers this will be a foreign concept - the idea of enforcing Sunday observance. In my understanding of prophecy, that is exactly where we are headed. It has to do with Biblical terms such as the Mark of the Beast and the Seal of God. Watch for more and more of a push in this direction in coming months. I believe that the increasing frequency and mounting scale of natural disasters worldwide will result in a call to get back to God. The problem will be: whose idea of how to worship and obey God will be promoted? There are two very different versions; one Biblical and one according to the traditions of men.
Banning Cash "Necessary to Give Central Banks More Power"
Paul Joseph Watson, August 28th, 2015, Infowars.com
Editor's Comment: It is already astounding how much power has already been given to central banks since the last crisis; QE alone gave the Federal Reserve nearly complete power over the economy. But it is even more outrageous that the elite members of these institutions, of the big banks, and of the media outlets that represent their interests are blaming the people holding cash for today's relapse into fiscal oblivion, and demanding that cash be abolished, rather than the policies that have brought us to the brink.
It is absolutely the problem-reaction-solution method at work, to force the population onto a totally digital, tracked and traced electronic currency.
Financial Times Calls For Abolishing Cash
by Paul Joseph Watson
The Financial Times has published an anonymous article which calls for the abolition of cash in order to give central banks and governments more power.
Entitled The case for retiring another 'barbarous relic', the article laments the fact that people are stockpiling cash in anticipation of another economic collapse, a factor which is causing, "a lot of distortion to the economic system."
"The existence of cash - a bearer instrument with a zero interest rate - limits central banks' ability to stimulate a depressed economy. The worry is that people will change their deposits for cash if a central bank moves rates into negative territory," states the article.
Complaining that cash cannot be tracked and traced, the writer argues that its abolition would, "make life easier for a government set on squeezing the informal economy out of existence."
Abolishing cash would also give governments more power to lift taxes directly from people's bank accounts, the author argues, noting how "Value added tax, for example, could be automatically levied - and reimbursed - in real time on transactions between liable bank accounts."Click here to read it all
Ray's note: Hmmm ... I also remember something about a verse that talks of people not being able to buy or sell unless they have the Mark of the Beast. Could that be part of the picture in the future?
From This Point Forward, Christians Are Going To Be Banned From Holding Many Jobs In America
By Michael Snyder, on September 6th, 2015
Christianity is being criminalized in the United States. No, I am not talking about the kind of Christianity that is so prevalent in America today where "Christians" just ignore what the Bible says and do whatever they wanted to do in the first place anyway. Rather, I am talking about the kind of faith that Kim Davis has demonstrated. Christians all over this country are being put into positions where they must choose to either submit to the "new morality" or potentially lose their jobs. For Kim Davis, deciding to take a stand meant that she was thrown into prison. The radical judge that threw her into prison has said that she will stay there until she is willing to change her mind.
The pace of which our nation is circling the toilet is absolutely breathtaking. Just eleven years ago, a state constitutional amendment that banned gay marriage in Kentucky received support from 75 percent of the voters.
Now, Kim Davis has been locked away, and more county clerks may be next. There is news that another county clerk named Casey Davis has stepped forward to say that he won't issue any same sex marriage licenses either.

Met Office: Strongest El Nino Since 1950 On the Way
By: Tomasz Schafernaker / BBC News.com / September 14, 2015
"An El Nino climate event is under way that could potentially become one of the strongest events since 1950.
That's according to a new Met Office report which says that 2015 has already seen the warmest start to any year on record.
"It also outlines that El Nino is one of three key climate patterns that could lead to changes in our global temperature.
"The event occurs when the waters of the Pacific become exceptionally warm and distort weather patterns around the world."Click here to read it all
The September 28 Blood Supermoon, The Ring Of Fire And The Coming Great Japan Earthquake
By Michael Snyder, on September 22nd, 2015
On September 28th, we will witness the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015. This blood moon will be a "supermoon" and it will be clearly visible from the city of Jerusalem. According to Google, a supermoon is "the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth." In recent years, there have been some that have suggested that there is a link between supermoons and increased seismic activity on our planet. But others have written articles that claim to debunk this theory. Personally, I have read what both sides of the argument have to say, and I do not know which side of the argument is correct. But what I do know is that seismic activity along the Ring of Fire has picked up dramatically in recent years.
According to Volcano Discovery, there are 32 volcanoes on or near the Ring of Fire that are erupting right now. If that sounds like an unusually high number to you, that is because it is an unusually high number.
We have seen earthquake activity increase along the Ring of Fire as well. Just a few days ago, a massive 8.3-magnitude earthquake hit Chile. It produced a tsunami that was approximately 16 feet tall, and tsunami advisories were issued as far away as New Zealand…Click here to read it all
Sunday's lunar eclipse will also feature a 'Supermoon'
Doyle Rice, USA Today, Sep. 25, 2015
It hasn't happened in 33 years, and won't for another 18 years: Sunday evening, a total lunar eclipse will coincide with a "Supermoon."
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is between the full moon and the sun. The Earth's shadow covers the moon, which often has a red color, hence the "blood" moon nickname.
Although it's completely in the shadow of Earth, a bit of reddish sunlight still reaches the moon.
"That red light shining onto the moon is sunlight that has skimmed and bent through Earth's atmosphere: that is, from all the sunrises and sunsets that ring the world at any given moment," according to Alan MacRobert of Sky and Telescope magazine.
The total eclipse will start at 10:11 p.m. EDT (7:11 p.m. PDT) Sunday evening and will last one hour and 12 minutes. It will be visible across North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of West Asia and the eastern Pacific, NASA said.
Weather permitting, folks in the eastern half of North America can watch every stage of the eclipse, from beginning to end of the partial phases, with the moon mostly high in the sky, Sky and Telescope reports.Click here to read it all
Evacuations as California wildfire burns 65,000 acres, threatens 6,000 structures
Sep. 11, 2015
Roughly 2,700 people were ordered to evacuate the town of San Andreas, California as a wildfire raged in the surrounding area, the Associated Press reported on Friday, but that order has now been lifted. A state of emergency has been declared.
Other areas remain under evacuation orders, however, according to state fire officials, and those in San Andreas have been told to remain prepared.
Images posted online show the fire creeping to the town, with smoke filling the air.
The "Butte Fire," as it's been called, was described as "extremely dangerous" by California state fire spokeswoman Nancy Longmore, the AP stated.
"It's expanding like a balloon," she said. "It's moving very fast. There's many homes threatened."Click here to read it all
Ray's note: I thought I would include some news from close to home. There was a wildfire last month in the Rock Creek area close to where I live. The following article links to a gallery of photos showing some of the effects - homes were burned, property was damaged, wildlife perished. Fortunately, there were no people killed. Many volunteers worked together to support each other and even fight to save each others' homes.
Death and life in the wildfire zone - a Rock Creek fire photo gallery
Aug 23, 2015
"I am back from a week on the fire line, covering the savage Rock Creek fire. It was a welcome change from covering the city, and it got me out into the country, even if it seems like half of the province is on fire."
That is from a reporter on the recent Rock Creek fire not far from where I live. Once in a while tragedy comes rather closer to home. We can all expect tragedy to affect us in the future and the environment and world conditions spin out of control.Click here to see the after effects of a tragic fire.
