News Roundup & Comment

Synopsis: Below are some of the highlights from Jim’s look at news events from our nation and around the world. Stories included:

In a repudiation of President Biden, the Israeli Security Assistance Support Act passed in the House on Thursday with bipartisan support.

The U.S. State Department has moved a one billion dollar package of weapons aid for Israel into the congressional review process.

The floating pier that will allow humanitarian aid to flow into Gaza from the sea has now been anchored to a beach according to U.S. Central Command.

Amid heightened tensions with Egypt since Israel began its ground operation, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intimated that Egypt was holding Gaza civilians hostage by not working with them to reopen the Rafah border crossing for humanitarian aid.

Israel’s military suffered setbacks yesterday after officials confirmed that five troops were killed in a friendly fire incident in Gaza while elsewhere an Israeli air force space in northern Israel was hit by the Lebanon-based Hezbollah militia.

Israeli Defense Forces have recovered the bodies of three hostages in a tunnel in the Gaza Strip.

The IDF struck a Hamas command room and a school run by a U.N. agency, with fighter jets killing more than 15 terror operatives, including ten Hamas members and some involved in the October 7th invasion of Israel.

The Arab League met on Thursday in Bahrain to voice its opposition, not just to the Rafah operation, but to call for an immediate ceasefire and the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from the enclave.

Despite months of deteriorating relations and increasing hostile rhetoric, the complete shutdown of trade between Turkey and Israel earlier this month came as a shock to many.

In a dramatic shift, the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has revised its data pertaining to the number of Palestinian casualties in the 7 month old Gaza war, reducing by almost half the number of women and children that previously were said to be killed in the hostilities between Israel and Hamas.

Former President Trump surprised many people both inside and outside of Israel recently when he came out against a two-state solution for the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

Police in Savage, Minnesota, are investigating an attack on a little girl at a local school by other girls who told officials they beat her up because she wasn’t Muslim.

Slovakia’s Prime Minister is expected to survive after being shot five times outside the House of Culture while meeting supporters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing and announced the strengthening of defense and trade relations.

A report from the Network Contagion Research Institute shows a political activist group linked to the Chinese Communist Party has played a crucial role in funding and organizing the anti-Israel protests on college campuses across the U.S.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22:20b) The last prayer in the Bible

Jesus Said Deception Is The First Sign Of The End Times, And We Are Literally Drowning In A Global Sea Of Lies And Deceit

Jesus says the Devil is the ‘father of lies’ in John 8:44, and since Antichrist is about to come on the scene, we are awash in lies, deception and deceit on every front.

When I am looking for subject matter for a new Podcast, many times I will go with what the main or top story in the news happens to be if it has some relation on Bible prophecy. This morning, while looking for material, I at first was a tad flummoxed when, despite all the headlines, I was finding no singular compelling story to talk about. It was then the Lord showed me it was staring me in the face the whole time. Deception, the first sign of the end times, and it is coming at us from every angle on every front.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
Matthew 24:3-4 (KJV)

On this episode of the NTEB Prophecy News Podcast, we find ourselves in a time where everyone seems to be lying to us all the time, it is truly a ‘marvellous thing’ as your King James Bible says. We were lied to about the COVID virus, about the lockdown, about the mRNA vaccine, about the death count, and are now being lied to about the state of our nation, about the lies being force-fed to our kids in school, it is all lies all the time with no end in sight. A spirit of anger and hostility pervades our land, and upon further inspection through the Bible, we see that it is the spirit of Antichrist that is now present amongst us. Jesus says the Devil is the ‘father of lies’ in John 8:44, and since Antichrist is about to come on the scene, we are awash in lies, deception and deceit. On this episode, you will hear in their own words just how bad things really are, and just how close we are to Flight #777 taking off.

Debunking Popular Lies About Premillennialism

By Jonathan Brentne: Has the definition of Premillennialism changed in the past few decades? I ask this because during the past several years, a few pastors told me they were Premillennial, but they didn’t adhere to a futuristic interpretation of the book of Revelation or the restoration of a kingdom to Israel.

For me, Premillennialism has always signified a belief in Jesus’ return to earth after a literal seven-year Tribulation at which time He will setup His thousand-year rule over the nations of the earth, which certainly includes a gloriously restored Israel.

What’s causing the shift away from these beliefs that were a mainstay of Bible-believing churches for much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries?

Could it be that just as with the Rapture, there’s a stigma attached to it because of the errant assumptions that people make about Premillennialism?

Let’s examine some of the popular lies that Christians often accept as facts.
Biden FBI Issues Terror Alert Warning
Of Islamic Attack On U.S. ‘Pride Month’ Events Without Mentioning Islam

By Leo Hohmann: The FBI and Homeland Security have issued an alert warning that Gay Pride events scheduled for cities throughout the U.S. during June “Pride Month” may be targeted by ISIS and other Islamic terrorist organizations.

Of course, our woke federal law-enforcement agencies never utter the word Islamic, Islamic State, or Muslim.

Here’s what they said in a release issued this week:

“Foreign terrorist organizations or supporters may seek to exploit increased gatherings associated with the upcoming June 2024 Pride Month.”

By Pamela Geller: Muḥammad ibn ‘Abdallāh Hassan led a jihad war against Great Britain, Italy, and Ethiopia in Africa. He was famously known by the British Empire as the “Mad Mullah.”
