Originally intended for the Israelites, Hos 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge,” speaks volumes to the present day church that is sitting fat and lazy in their cushioned chairs and air conditioned places of worship. Hearing sermons on their best life now and the 7 keys to happiness has brought a stupor on the evangelical church in America. Knowledge is power, the saying goes, but if the pulpit is silent, then the laity are dumbstruck. If the church hears nothing on a Biblical World View, how will they ever understand they have the mandate to speak out on world issues that contradict a Christian World View? If the Pastor never encourages or seeks to motivate the church to stand up and speak out on moral issues, will we ever see change. Some of the most Godly men and women I know refuse to get involved in politics. They sit and pray, which is good, but sometimes we have to face the giant not pray them away. David could have prayed all day, but it wasn’t until he picked up the first stone that God began the miracle. The issues of today are moral, not political. We should be speaking out on these issues. I lay the sins of America at the feet of the modern church. We lost our voice trying to win the world through being too much like the world. We should be different, and when I for one speak out on moral issues and I get more amen’s out of the church than inside the church…we have a problem. Reminds me of the Old Testament king who didn’t want Jeremiah to prophesy because he never had anything good to say. The problem was Jeremiah was speaking for God! The modern church could use an Old Testament man of God today. Silence is not an option.
The father of two children was killed while attempting to flee Ukraine on Monday; Victim’s father: The Ukrainian soldiers thought he was Chechen or something and killed him.
Adding to the tragedies reported amid the Russia-Ukraine war, a Jewish father of two was mistakenly killed on Monday while attempting to leave Ukraine. Roman Brodsky was reportedly shot dead by Ukrainian forces after they mistook him for a pro-Russian Chechen fighter. Brodsky was traveling among a convoy of vehicles on its way to the Moldovan border.
According to an initial report by The Times of Israel, Brodsky was living in Ukraine with his family before the war. The report states that the father claims that his son was killed at a military checkpoint. The father said, “The Ukrainian soldiers thought he was Chechen or something and killed him.”
Despite his son being killed by Ukrainian soldiers, Brodsky’s father pointed the finger at Russian President Vladimir Putin. He stressed the need for Israel to do its part in bringing its citizens home safely.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett responded to Brodsky’s death, stating, “In the name of all Israeli citizens, I want to send my condolences to Roman’s wife, children, and family in Israel and in Ukraine. We are doing everything to help Israelis return home.”
The core Jewish population of Ukraine is approximately 43,000. However, up to 200,000 Ukrainians, according to a report by the Institute for Jewish Policy Research, qualify for Israeli citizenship in line with the Law of Return.
International military drills, nuclear talks, and growing Iranian aggression are leading many to speculate that the unspoken international consensus is that the Islamic Republic’s nuclear agenda won’t be slowed down without military intervention.
On Thursday, during an award ceremony in Israel, Mossad Chief David Barnea vowed, “Iran will never have a nuclear weapon, not in the coming years, not ever, that’s my commitment, that’s the commitment of the Mossad.” His comments surfaced while nuclear discussions are taking place this week in Vienna in hopes of bringing Tehran back to the table to renegotiate the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran nuclear deal.
I would like to apologize to the rest of the civilized world for our pretend President. He is not only destroying alliances that the U.S. has made over decades, but is proving his incompetence in untold ways. Please help us by printing the truth of the situations in the world. If you do that maybe our ignorant press will take up the cause and spread some truth as well. Hopefully the world will last till we can get rid of this present burden we are enduring. God help us!

For Americans used to having the biggest and most modern military forces in the world, it is humbling to realize that China’s Navy is now the world’s largest. It has been for some time. The U.S. Navy may still rule the oceans, but China rules the vital trade routes in the South China Sea. Pentagon planners know this and have called out China’s work on building both capital ships and the swarms of smaller escort vessels that will project the dragon’s breath across those critical trade routes for years to come. The People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) is building their capability to control and possibly interdict shipping from other Asian nations, mostly as an economic and political lever. China means to threaten the economic security of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and others. America must remain resolute in the face of this build-up in order to maintain freedom of commerce in the Asian seas.
The Israel Defense Forces is drawing up plans for an attack on Iran’s nuclear program, the Israel Hayom daily reported Thursday in a front-page article.
The newspaper said that IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi has asked for three alternate proposals to derail Tehran’s program, without elaborating on them. It only indicated one of the proposals is a military strike, noting that such a plan would require a significant budgetary boost for the Israeli military.
Iran resumed enriching uranium to 20 percent last week, well in excess of the threshold set out in its landmark 2015 nuclear deal with world powers and a short technical jump from the 90% level of enrichment needed to produce weapons.
