    Worthy Brief - 1/21/2019

    Worthy News Brief - January 21, 2019 Friend, learn to shift gears! Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Every time I turn on the news it seems the new buzzword is – CHANGE! So how can we just shift gears and change? Let's learn a lesson about basic automotive mechanics. Generally a car has between 4 and 5 gears. The first gear maximizes power in exchange for speed. As you move through the gears, you can continue to go faster, yet without using any more power, and before you know it – you have to look at the speedometer – cause nobody wants a speeding ticket! So what can we learn from this? Do you want a breakthrough? Do you want a new direction? Then you need to take that first step! You need to put all your focus – all your energy into that <strong>first initial gear</strong>! Yes, it takes all your strength, and yet it seems like you're moving sooo slow -- but be encouraged, because once you start moving, you'll be able to shift gears -- and before you know it –- you'll be sailing along, and even need to check to see if you're speeding! Friend, the first step is always the hardest -- but it's necessary for change! You can breakthrough with the power of God empowering you, so GO FOR IT! Put everything you've got into that first start. And just like driving, it'll get easier; and before you know it -- we might even have to issue you a speeding citation, just to slow you down a bit..! With so much work to be done, let's not stay in neutral -- let's get in gear, and start shifting! Your family in the Lord with much agape love, George, Baht Rivka, Elianna & Obadiah Dallas, Texas Editor's Note: Some events have CHANGED this weekend.

  2. (Worthy News) - A massive swarm of locusts and cockroaches has descended on Mecca, one of Islam's holiest cities in Saudi Arabia, prompting officials there to deploy specialized sanitation crews to tackle the plague. "We have harnessed all efforts available to speed up the eradication of the insects in the interest of the safety and comfort of guests to God's house," said a statement released by Mecca's municipal authority. 10 plagues of #Mecca: Horrid locust swarms invade Islam's holiest city (VIDEOS) https://t.co/lShPNjHSSK pic.twitter.com/vhrrI2fjSA — Sputnik (@SputnikInt) January 12, 2019 The post Plague of Tens of Thousands of Locusts Descends on Mecca, Islam's Sacred City appeared first on Worthy Christian News.

  3. (Worthy News) - Thousands marched in Washington calling for a shutdown, but not the government's. They want to shut down the abortion industry. And President Donald Trump threw his support behind their effort at this 2019 March for Life. At the pre-March rally, Vice President Mike Pence made a surprise appearance on stage, saying, "We gather here because we believe as our founders did that we are all of us, born and unborn, endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, and one of these rights is the right to life." Then he introduced a special guest who addressed the crowd from the White House. "This is a movement founded on love and grounded in the nobility and dignity of every human life," President Trump said. "When we look into the eyes of a newborn child, we see beauty and the human soul and the majesty of God's creation. We know that every life has meaning and that every life is worth protecting." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ] The 2019 March for Life was a great success! People from across the country, and the world, met in D.C. to march for the rights of the preborn!

  4. (Worthy News) - Trying to find a solution to the shutdown standoff on its 29th day, President Donald Trump offered a new proposal to Democrats Saturday afternoon. In exchange for his $5.7 billion southern border wall, he's offering protections for "Dreamers" -- young people brought into the country illegally by their parents over the next three years. The proposal is an effort by the White House to bring Democrats back to the negotiating table to bring an end to the shutdown. Speaking from the White House Diplomatic Room in a televised address to the nation, Trump said his proposal is "a common sense compromise that both parties can embrace."

  5. (Worthy News) - Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah sent US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a letter in late December rejecting future American financial assistance, citing the 2018 US anti-terrorism law ATCA. The Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act, which was signed into law by President Donald Trump back in October and recently approved by the US Congress, would enable American authorities to seize assets from any foreign “terrorist entity” that receives financial aid from the US government. The law also means that any US citizen could sue the PA for involvement in terror activity and be compensated by the money earmarked for PA financial aid.

  6. (Worthy News) - Massive Israeli airstrikes on Syria destroyed weapons stores and military positions belonging to Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group, a war monitor said Monday. The Israeli military said early Monday it was carrying out strikes against Iran’s Qud’s Forces, in a rare statement on its military activities in Syria. “The Israeli missiles managed to destroy weapons depots and military posts of the Iranians and the Lebanese Hezbollah in the vicinity of Damascus International Airport and the area of Al-Kiswah and Jamraya,” the Britain-based Observatory for Human Rights said.

  7. (Worthy News) - President Trump spoke with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Sunday about a “negotiated solution” for Syria, where the withdrawal of U.S. troops has alarmed Kurdish allies of America who are considered terrorists by the Turks. In a phone call, Mr. Trump “underscored the importance of defeating terrorist elements that remain in Syria,” the White House said. About 2,000 U.S. troops have been fighting the Islamic State in northeast Syria with the help of Kurdish fighters, near the border of Turkey. The administration has begun withdrawing those forces, with Mr. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence asserting that the terrorist group is all but destroyed.

  8. (Worthy News) - Trump administration and North Korean officials held their first “working level” talks on denuclearization over the weekend in Sweden, preparing for the second summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that U.S. officials says is slated by the end of February. Although the administration was mum on the talks in Stockholm, which represents U.S. interests in North Korea because Washington has no embassy there, South Korean media and foreign diplomatic sources said Stephen Biegun, U.S. special envoy for North Korea, met with North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui. Coming on the heels of a separate meeting Friday between President Trump and former North Korean spy chief Kim Yong-chol in Washington, the Stockhom talks are the latest sign of serious diplomatic movement in the otherwise stalled U.S. and South Korean push to get Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear weapons.

  9. (Worthy News) - Vice President Mike Pence’s wife was the target of criticism this week after she announced that she would be teaching art at a private conservative Christian school, and the Vice President is stepping up to defend her. Karen Pence announced this week that she would be teaching art at Immanuel Christian School which requires its applicants to sign a document signifying that they believe marriage is between one man and one woman and that they would not promote “transgender identity.” After making the announcement, Pence was met with harsh backlash from critics who believe it is inappropriate for the Vice President’s wife to work somewhere that “discriminates against the LGBT community” [ Source: Christian Headlines (Read More...) ] The post 'Criticism of Christian Education in America Should Stop,' Vice President Pence Defends His Wife amid Media Backlash appeared first on Worthy Christian News.

  10. (Worthy News) - The Communist government of China is continuing forcing Christians to replace posters of Jesus Christ with Communist leaders, and is turning pulpits into entertainment venues. Religious liberty magazine Bitter Winter reports that Chinese authorities are going from town to town, demanding that Christian icons be replaced with pictures of Chairman Mao Zedong and President Xi Jinping. Initial reports of the initiative came out back in 2017, though several Christians have said it continues in full force in different provinces.

    Worthy Brief - 1/18/2019

    Worthy News Brief - January 18, 2019 Friend, good things come to those who WAIT! James 5:8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. A friend sent us this short story and we couldn't help but use it for today's devotion. A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, age five and Ryan, three. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson so she said; "Now boys, if Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake. I can wait.'" Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus." This story cracked me up, but how true is it of our lives? We want what we want and we want it now! M.H. Lount taught that "God's best gifts come slowly. We could not use them if they did not. Many a man, called of God to... a work in which he is pouring out his life, is convinced that the Lord means to bring his efforts to a successful conclusion. Nevertheless, even such a confident worker grows discouraged at times and worries because results do not come as rapidly as he would desire. But growth and strength in waiting are results often greater than the end so impatiently longed for. Paul had time to realize this as he lay in prison. Moses must have asked, 'Why?' many times during the delays in Midian and in the wilderness. Jesus Himself experienced the discipline of delay in His silent years before His great public ministry began." Friend, perhaps you've been waiting on something for a long time and you're weary. You're not alone! Let's ask the Lord to renew our hearts and desires today, and give us a fresh infilling of strength to wait on His perfect timing. Good things come to those who WAIT!

  12. (Worthy News) - A top North Korean general is in Washington Friday (Jan 18) for a rare visit, during which he is expected to meet President Donald Trump as the two countries seek to finalize a new summit aimed at denuclearisation and easing decades of hostility. Kim Yong Chol, a right-hand man to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, arrived Thursday evening in the US capital, the latest peace-making mission just a year after once-soaring tensions began to abate. The North Korean negotiator abruptly canceled his last planned talks in the United States - a meeting set two months ago in New York with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo - and this time the administration has treaded cautiously, not announcing his visit in advance.

  13. (Worthy News) - Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Abu al-Gheith caused a stir when he stated during a recent television interview that the priority of the Palestinian cause – resisting Israel and pushing for a Palestinian state – has been somewhat “reduced,” before clarifying that “it is still a pressing circumstance that we [Arab states] must strive to resist.” Al-Gheith explained to a local Egyptian channel that times have changed and the Arab world has been dramatically transformed as well. Before 2010 there was not an Arab state that failed but “recent years have been the hardest on the region,” citing the collapse of countries like Yemen, Libya and Syria. Moreover, al-Gheith cautioned, no one should forget “the mistakes of Arab rulers and their governing regimes which have caused tragedies in the region.” The post Arab League: Palestinian issue has ‘reduced’ importance appeared first on Worthy Christian News.

  14. (Worthy News) - Iran will keep military forces in Syria, the head of the elite Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday, defying Israeli threats that they might be targeted if they do not leave the country. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday that Israeli forces would continue to attack Iranians in Syria unless they quickly get out of there. "The Islamic Republic of Iran will keep its military advisers, revolutionary forces and its weapons in Syria," Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the Revolutionary Guards top commander, was quoted as saying by the semi-official ISNA news agency. Jafari called Netanyahu's threats "a joke", and warned that the Israeli government "was playing with (a) lion's tail."

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Taheb had an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

  16. (Worthy News) - Earth’s bugs outweigh humans 17 times over and are such a fundamental foundation of the food chain that scientists say a crash in insect numbers risks “ecological Armageddon”. When Lister’s study was published in October, one expert called the findings “hyper-alarming”. The Puerto Rico work is one of just a handful of studies assessing this vital issue, but those that do exist are deeply worrying. Flying insect numbers in Germany’s natural reserves have plunged 75% in just 25 years. The virtual disappearance of birds in an Australian eucalyptus forest was blamed on a lack of insects caused by drought and heat. Lister and his colleague Andrés García also found that insect numbers in a dry forest in Mexico had fallen 80% since the 1980s.

  17. (Worthy News) - The Trump administration on Wednesday dismissed as “inaccurate” an Israeli TV report that said its forthcoming peace plan would offer Palestinians a state in most of the West Bank, with parts of East Jerusalem as its capital. Channel 13 reported hours earlier that a “senior American” official had said Trump’s peace proposal would provide for Jerusalem to be divided, with Israel maintaining sovereignty in west Jerusalem, parts of east Jerusalem and the “holy basin,” including the Old City and its immediate environs. However, it added that the “holy basin” area would be “jointly run” with the Palestinians, Jordan and possibly other countries. “While I respect @BarakRavid, his report on Israel’s Ch. 13 is not accurate,” tweeted Jason Greenblatt, the White House special envoy for Mideast peace, referring to the reporter who broke the story. “Speculation about the content of the plan is not helpful.

After the attack, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) interrupted the confirmation hearing of William Barr to make a direct plea to President Donald Trump. "My concern by the statements made by President Trump is that you have set in motion enthusiasm by the enemy we are fighting. You make people we are trying to help wonder about us. And as they get bolder, people we are trying to help are going to get more uncertain. I saw this in Iraq and I am now seeing it in Syria," said Graham.

  19. (Worthy News) - The Trump administration will roll out a new strategy Thursday for a more aggressive space-based missile defense system to protect against existing threats from North Korea and Iran and counter advanced weapon systems being developed by Russia and China. Details about the administration’s Missile Defense Review — the first compiled since 2010 — are expected to be released during President Donald Trump’s visit to the Pentagon with top members of his administration. The new review concludes that in order to adequately protect America, the Pentagon must expand defense technologies in space and use those systems to more quickly detect, track and ultimately defeat incoming missiles.

  20. (Worthy News) - North Korea again tops the list of the 50 most dangerous countries to follow Jesus Christ. The 2019 World Watch List released Wednesday by Open Doors USA highlights where action is desperately needed to protect Christians. President Trump has met with many of the leaders whose countries make the list, including China, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, and North Korea. The Trump administration has made religious freedom a priority. Case in point – fighting for the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson from Turkey. But there's more the US government can do and that's the backbone behind this list. The spread of radical Islam increases the danger for Christians worldwide.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Thursday the airstrikes hit the 15 square kilometers (5.8 square miles) controlled by IS in the eastern province of Deir el-Zour after US-backed Kurdish-led fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces scored gains in recent weeks. Europe-based activist Omar Abu Layla of the DeirEzzor 24 monitoring group confirmed intense airstrikes were ongoing, adding that they were triggered by a counter-offensive carried out by IS during a strong fog.

  22. (Worthy News) - Support for President Trump's wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is at an all-time high weeks into a partial government shutdown that began over a border security dispute for funding. According to the results of an ABC News and Washington Post poll released Sunday morning, 42 percent of Americans support a wall. That is up from 34 percent one year ago and a previous high of 37 percent in 2017. With 54 percent, the majority of Americans polled still oppose building a border wall. However, that opposition is shrinking, as 63 percent opposed the wall a year ago and the previous low was 60 percent two years ago.

    Worthy Brief - 1/16/2019

    Worthy News Brief - January 16, 2019 Friend, invest in eternity! 1 Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. The great pyramids of Egypt have become objects of fascination for many involved in the New Age teaching. Some think they were built by aliens from outer space. Others say they are containers of cosmic power. All of them are trying to find the great "secret" of the pyramids. What they are, really, are structures of death, exaggerated tombstones, coffins. The pyramids were made for death. They were built to house a dead body, along with the useless riches of a rotting corpse. The pyramid holds an important lesson for our lives, however. All the works of our flesh and self-glorification end in waste, destruction, futility, and death. Our accomplishments in the flesh might be grand, exalted, and elaborate -- but they're really just a monument to ourselves that have no life within them. If we want death, let's look to the flesh and all the glories of man -- look to the pyramids. But if we want life, we'll only find it by abandoning the flesh, walking in the spirit and putting our faith in Yeshua (Jesus), the one who gives us abundant life! Friend, investments in eternity neither rust nor rot, so let's become wise investors -- investing in the Kingdom!

  24. (Worthy News) - A Wisconsin-based atheist group has taken aim at the Ark Encounter tourist attraction in Williamstown, Kentucky by sending a letter to more than 1,000 school districts in five states, warning them that a field trip to the Ark would be unconstitutional. The Freedom From Religion Foundation wrote: "Public schools cannot organize trips for students to either the Creation Museum or the Ark Park. It is unacceptable to expose a captive audience of impressionable students to the overtly religious atmosphere of (Ken) Ham's Christian theme parks." "I would like to see some public schools and public parks to stand up to them and not succumb to their bullying and intimidation," Ham said. "Because the FFRF has sent letters to 1,000 school districts, I'm offering them free admission for the teachers, students who come on an official public school trip." "And if they do sue them, we have expert attorneys who are willing to defend them in court and I'd like to see a test case go to the Supreme Court and stop this nonsense from these atheist groups who try to outlaw Christian influence in this nation," he added.

Near the airstrike site, headquarters facilities and aircraft can be seen, which Syria said were damaged after being hit by shrapnel.
