  1. Worthy News Brief - April 26, 2019 Friend, rest in resurrection power! Acts 4:33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. According to church history, the apostle Thomas, died in Calamina, a city in the East Indies. While there, Thomas had put a stop to the idolatry that was running rampant in the land. The idolatrous priest was not happy about this at all and accused him before their king. The king sentenced Thomas to death -- first to be tormented by red hot plates and then cast into a glowing furnace and burned. When the priest saw that the fire was not hurting him, he pierced Thomas' side with spears and javelins, and finally Thomas died. What turned the disciple who had fled Messiah during his trial and crucifixion, into a powerful saint of God? What turned turned his fears and doubt into powerful faith that was able to persevere through torture and fire? He had seen the Lord resurrected from the dead! He had witnessed His resurrection power! Would you die for a lie? Of course not! Neither did the Apostles. Eleven of the twelve apostles suffered similar fates as Thomas. The same power which rose Yeshua (Jesus) from the dead also gave Thomas and the other disciples the faith to endure --- and that same power is available to us! Friend, however your faith is being tried today, know that God has given you the power to overcome every doubt, every fear, and every attack of the enemy!

  2. by Jordan Hilger, Worthy News Correspondent (Worthy News) - 37 people in Saudi Arabia were executed Tuesday on terrorism-related charges, according to the Saudi Press Agency, during which ceremony the body of a dead man was later crucified. Despite avowals from Saudi state media that the accused were “adopting terrorist extremist ideology and forming terrorist cells,” human rights watchdog Amnesty International claimed the brutality was carried out for more nefarious purposes. “It is...yet another gruesome indication of how the death penalty is being used as a political tool to crush dissent from within the country’s Shi’a minority,” said Lynn Maalouf, Middle East Research Director at Amnesty. 14 of the 37 men put to death Tuesday were apprehended for their participation in anti-government protests in the Eastern Province, the predominantly Shi’ite section of Saudi Arabia, while one expert has claimed, based on an analysis of the names of the condemned, that 34 of the 37 were of Shi’ite extraction. “They didn’t have to execute these people, but it’s important for them to ride the American anti-Iranian wave,” opined Ali Al-Ahmed, Saudi analyst and head of a Washington think tank, who suspects the Saudi government has been emboldened in its quest for regional hegemony as a result of the U.S. hardening its position toward the Shi’ite Islamic Republic, and is beginning to flex its muscles toward pro-Iran dissidents. 104 people have been executed in Saudi Arabia so far in 2019.

  3. by Jordan Hilger, Worthy News Correspondent (Worthy News) - The U.S. is lagging behind China in its development of hypersonic weapons technologies, according to senior Pentagon officials. “China has tested more hypersonic weapons than we have in a decade,” said Dr. Michael Griffin, U.S. Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, of the worrying disparity, which would allow China to strike targets anywhere in the world in under an hour. Hypersonic weapons are projectiles that travel 5 times the speed of sound or about 3,853 miles per hour, can carry either conventional or nuclear warheads, and allow for a variety of trajectories that conventional defense systems are not up-to-date in their ability to intercept. “We do not have defenses against those systems,” Griffin told the Senate Armed Services Committee in April 2018. The Pentagon has dedicated 2 billion dollars of its budget this year to accelerate its development of the new technology in a bid to outpace Russia and China, who have both conducted successful hypersonic weapons tests in the last year. In his State of the Union address in March 2018, Vladimir Putin cited the U.S. and NATO buildup of anti-ballistic weapons systems along the Russian border in Eastern Europe as the reason for Russia’s interest in the technology.

  4. (Worthy News) - California's Supreme Court has halted an abortion case surrounding the trafficking of baby body parts by Planned Parenthood employees, granting pro-life activist David Daleiden an unexpected victory. On Good Friday, a California Superior Court judge vacated the preliminary hearings against Daleiden and his co-defendant Sandra Merritt. The action came after an order was sent by California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye that suspended "all further proceedings" in the criminal prosecution against the two pro-lifers.

  5. (Worthy News) - The Earth's north magnetic pole has been moving from its old location in Northern Canada towards Siberia. And there is a growing concern among scientists that the weakening of the Earth's magnetic field could someday cause its north and south poles to flip. And that could lead to global chaos. The Earth's magnetic north has been moving ever since it was first discovered in 1831. It's driven by molten iron moving deep beneath the Earth's crust. But now magnetic north is moving so quickly that it forced the world's geomagnetism experts to update the World Magnetic Model a year early.

  6. (Worthy News) - Six weeks after a tropical storm left hundreds dead in Mozambique, another potentially destructive cyclone has made landfall. Part of the African nation - one of the poorest countries in the world - was left devastated by Cyclone Idai last month, and there are fears that Cyclone Kenneth could bring about similar carnage. Mandatory evacuations were carried out ahead of its arrival, which is expected to bring heavy rain and flooding to northeastern regions largely spared by its predecessor.

  7. (Worthy News) - President Donald Trump on Thursday called the FBI probe into his 2016 campaign and subsequent investigations into Russian election meddling “an attempted overthrow" of his administration. “This was a coup,” Trump told host Sean Hannity on Fox News’ “Hannity” in his first interview since the Mueller report's release. “This was an attempted overthrow of the United States government.” Trump insisted that special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election had gone “hog wild to find something about the administration which obviously wasn't there.” [ Source: Politico (Read More...) ] The post Trump: Russia investigations an attempted 'coup' appeared first on Worthy Christian News.

  8. (Worthy News) - From grubby packaging engulfing small Southeast Asian communities to waste piling up in plants from the US to Australia, China's ban on accepting the world's used plastic has plunged global recycling into turmoil. For many years, China received the bulk of scrap plastic from around the world, processing much of it into a higher quality material that could be used by manufacturers. But at the start of 2018, it closed its doors to almost all foreign plastic waste, as well as many other recyclables, in a push to protect the local environment and air quality, leaving developed nations struggling to find places to send their waste.

  9. (Worthy News) - Though evangelical Protestants remain the largest faith group in the country, as clashes over their beliefs turn up in the public square, half the country has come to believe evangelicals face discrimination in the US. A new report from the Pew Research Center reveals that Americans see discrimination on the rise or holding steady across demographic groups, with evangelical Christians and Jews experiencing a significant uptick over the past few years. Fifty percent of US adults agree that evangelical Christians are subject to discrimination, up from 42 percent in 2016. One in five (18%) say that evangelicals—about a quarter of the population—face “a lot” of discrimination.

  12. (Worthy News) - The Israeli Air Force opened a second squadron of F-35 stealth fighter jets, The Jerusalem Post learned on Thursday. The squadron will be called “Defenders of the South.” Built by Lockheed Martin, the jets have an extremely low radar signature allowing the jet to operate undetected deep inside enemy territory as well as evade advanced missile defense systems like the S-300 and S-400 missile defense systems, which have been deployed in countries such as Syria.

  13. (Worthy News) - Sri Lankan Christians fear more attacks are coming as the nation is still in mourning over the horrific bombings on Easter Sunday. At least 253 people were killed and hundreds more were wounded. Thursday the number was decreased from 350 to 253, officials explaining that they initially thought many people had been killed due to unidentifiable body parts. In two major cities in Sri Lanka it's very quiet as residents and office workers are staying indoors and shops are closed. There's concern that more attacks are on the way with the US embassy warning that terrorists could target places of worship again this weekend.
