  1. (Worthy News) - Russia, Syria, and Lebanon on Monday criticized the United States for recognizing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory. “In a blatant attack on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria, the president of the US has recognized the annexation of the Syrian Golan,” a foreign ministry source in Damascus said, according to state news agency, SANA. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War and extended Israeli law to the territory in 1981, a step tantamount to annexation. But the United States and the international community have long considered it Syrian territory under Israeli occupation. The plateau lies along a strategic area on the border between Israel and Syria. Russia also condemned Trump’s recognition on Monday, warning of a “new wave” of tensions in the Middle East in the wake of shift in US policy.

  2. (Worthy News) - President Trump signaled his support on Monday for state bills that would allow public schools to teach courses in the Bible, which he once proclaimed was his favorite book. Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2019 Trump’s tweet came minutes after “Fox & Friends” aired a segment Monday morning on pending legislation in six states — Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia — that would allow Bible literacy courses to become a part of a public school education. “Nothing beats the Bible,” Trump famously said on the campaign trail in 2015 — not even “The Art of the Deal.” [ Source: Yahoo (Read More...) ] The post Trump Boost Bills to Teach Bible in Public Schools appeared first on Worthy Christian News.

  4. (Worthy News) - Two Russian air force planes arrived in Venezuela over the weekend, carrying about 100 troops and nearly 40 tons of cargo. The aircraft, a military cargo plane and a passenger jet that also ferried a top Russian defense official, took off from a military airport in Russia and stopped in Syria on their way to Venezuela, according to the tracker Flighttradar24, Reuters reports. The planes landed in the South American country's main airport as dictator and Russian client Nicolas Maduro struggles to maintain power. Food shortages and energy blackouts have led to mass emigration and widespread protests in favor of opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized as interim president by the United States and dozens of other Western nations. Russia, China, and Iran remain on the side of Maduro, who has blocked U.S.-led humanitarian aid from entering the country.

  5. (Worthy News) - US President Donald Trump on Monday formally recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, saying the dramatic shift in American policy will help Israel defend itself against regional threats. “This was a long time in the making,” Trump said alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House, as he signed the proclamation. Speaking ahead of the signing, Trump said the move would “allow Israel to defend itself” against the “significant security challenges it faces every single day.” He said Israel “took the Golan Heights to safeguard from external threats,” such as those it currently faces from Syria, Iran, and the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group.

  7. Worthy News Brief - March 25, 2019 Friend, don't dilute the Word! 2 Peter 2:8-9 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: When Yeshua (Jesus) was attacked by Satan during His temptation in the wilderness, He countered every attack with the Word of God. But notice in Satan’s second attack – the enemy himself quoted the Scriptures, saying, “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down, for it is written, 'He shall give his angels charge over thee, and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.'” (Matthew 4:6 was a quote from Psalm 91:11, but the phrase, “to keep thee in all thy ways” was absent from Satan's quote). If we learn anything from this, we will realize that Satan has knowledge and some understanding of Scripture, and that he will use the Word attempting to deceive us with it into wrong actions. This tactic goes back even as far as the Garden of Eden where the adversary twisted God’s word saying, "Did God really say you shall not eat from every tree in the garden?" So it is today, that all around us we are hearing constant abuses, questions and attacks against the truth and reliability of God’s Word. Did God really create the world...in six days? Did God really say that marriage consists of a union between a man and a woman? Is God really going to judge the world and destroy it with fire? Has God really defined absolute moral truth? The enemy is constantly attempting to erode and destroy the foundational truths of God’s word using distortions, corruptions, half-truths, and modern "interpretations", for he knows that “if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3) Friend, let’s not be deceived by these subtle ploys of Satan. If we agree to alter or dilute the Word of God to accommodate our circumstances or natural inclinations, we will end up exactly where that serpent wants us; in disobedience, sin, and sorrow. You know, Satan has been using religious language to tempt the saints since the beginning of time, even to the point of trying to persuade people that he doesn't even exist. We must be discerning. If we want to live and walk in the truth we will believe God’s Word undiluted without compromise or private interpretation, seeking to understand it with the help of His Holy Spirit, Who is the only perfect interpreter. If we do, the enemy's deceptions will fail, and we will be delivered from every temptation! Your family in the Lord with much agape love, George, Baht Rivka, Elianna & Obadiah Arad, Israel Friend, if our ministry has blessed you, consider supporting our work online and in Israel!

  8. (Worthy News) - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested in an interview that President Donald Trump may have been sent by God to save the Jewish people, and said he was “confident that the Lord is at work here.” In a sit-down with the Christian Broadcasting Network on Thursday, interviewer Chris Mitchell noted that Israel was celebrating the Purim holiday. “Jews worldwide and here in Jerusalem are talking about the fact that Esther 2,500 years ago saved the Jewish people with God’s help from Haman,” he said, mentioning the Persian villain of the megillah. “And now 2,500 years later there’s a new Haman here in the Middle East that wants to eradicate the Jewish people just like Haman did: the state of Iran,” Mitchell went on. “Could it be that President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace?” [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ] The post Pompeo says Trump may have been sent by God to save Jews from Iran appeared first on Worthy Christian News.

  9. (Worthy News) - Amid protests and a heavy police presence, the Georgia Senate on Friday passed a bill banning almost all abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected. The bill, backed by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, passed on a 34-18 party-line vote and would be one of the nation’s strictest anti-abortion measures if it becomes law and is not blocked in court battles. It will now go back to the House to approve Senate changes, where it’s expected to pass again. Women in Georgia can currently seek an abortion during the first 20 weeks of a pregnancy. A heartbeat can be detected in an embryo as early as six weeks into pregnancy, before many women know they’re pregnant.

  10. (Worthy News) - The British government has been using the Bible against Christians seeking asylum after converting from Islam—most recently, citing verses from Leviticus, Exodus, and Revelation as evidence that the faith was not more peaceful, as one Iranian convert claimed in his application. Anglican leaders and other advocates for refugees condemned the immigration department’s decision to deny the Iranian’s 2016 petition for asylum this week. The letter sent Tuesday from the Home Office declared that Christianity was not a peaceful religion, bringing up “imagery of revenge, destruction, death, and violence” in Revelation and the line “You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you” from Leviticus 26:7.

  12. (Worthy News) - President Trump hinted Friday at a possible compromise in the upcoming trade talks with China: leaving in place tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods but negotiating on the remaining $200 billion worth of goods currently subject to tariffs. "If you look at technology and the first $50 billion of goods, we want to keep that because we need that," Trump told Fox Business in a Friday interview. The president was responding to a question about comments he made earlier in the week in which he indicated that the administration would not lift tariffs China even if they reached a trade deal. The Trump administration last year first placed a 25 percent tariff on $16 billion worth of goods from China. It then followed that with 25 percent tariffs on another $34 billion worth of goods. The administration then put tariffs of 10 percent on a further $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. The first two tranches covered machinery and electronics, information and communications technology mainly, while the third tranche included agriculture items, chemicals, leather, plywood, paper, and textiles, among other goods.

Despite pushback from his Lebanese interlocutors, Pompeo urged Lebanon to shun a group that forms part of the national government, despite the fact that its very existence as an armed militia violates U.N. Security Council resolutions. “The Lebanese people should no longer be made to suffer for the political and military ambitions of an outlaw nation [Iran] and its terrorist affiliate,” Pompeo said. “It will take courage for the nation of Lebanon to stand up to Hezbollah’s criminality, terror, and threats.” [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ] The post Pompeo Urges Lebanese to ‘Stand Up to Hezbollah’s Criminality, Terror, and Threats’ appeared first on Worthy Christian News.

For Trump, who has tweeted more than 230 times that he did not collude with Russians amid a torrent of allegations from media and political figures, the moment amounted to a near-total vindication. Although Mueller noted that his report did not "exonerate" Trump on obstruction, Barr wrote, the "report does not recommend any further indictments, nor did the Special Counsel obtain any sealed indictments that have yet to be made public."

  23.

Democrats promptly called for the release of Mueller’s full report and noted that he did not exonerate Trump on the question of whether the president obstructed justice in trying to undermine investigations into the election campaign. Still, Attorney General William Barr’s summary of Mueller’s final report appeared to significantly reduce the risk of impeachment that had hovered over Trump almost since he took office on Jan. 20, 2017.

  24. by Jordan Hilger, Worthy News Correspondent (Worthy News) - Pakistani Christians rallied at the U.N. earlier this week demanding action on Pakistan’s notorious blasphemy law, joined by members of European Parliament and human rights activists. The protest was held at Palais Wilson, the current Headquarters for the United Nations High Commissioner for human rights, during the 40th session of the U.N. Human Rights Council, and follows a similar effort by Pakistani believers in September of last year to gain support from the international body against the persecution of religious minorities in their country. “If we have an altercation with any person, they put us under PPC 295C,” said Frank John, a Pakistani Christian who attended the protest, in reference to the article of Pakistan’s legal code that forbids slander against the Prophet Muhammad. “We always remain in fear of its misuse,” explained John. The said article made headlines in January when Pakistan’s top court upheld the acquittal of Asia Bibi, a Pakistani woman held in solitary confinement for almost ten years after a Muslim coworker accused her of making dishonoring remarks toward the Prophet. Despite repeated attempts by concerned parties to garner international support for Pakistani Christians, critics claim the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has not only been loath to address the situation but has even shortchanged Christians fleeing Pakistan to neighboring Thailand of refugee status. “It clearly appears to us that the UNHCR in Bangkok has placed a higher burden of proof on Pakistani Christian asylum seekers [than on other refugees],” said Ann Buwalda, director of international Christian advocacy group Jubilee Campaign USA, who testified before Congress last month on behalf of the 4,000 displaced Pakistani believers in Thailand who still await refugee status from the UNHCHR. “There are denials because there is an unreasonable standard [of evidence] placed on them,” said Buwalda. It remains to be seen whether this year’s protest will yield international action on a law that has kept Pakistan in the top five of Open Doors USA’s World Watch List for three straight years.

  25. Worthy News Brief - March 22, 2019 Friend, touch someone and bring out their inner beauty! Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. A young couple was visiting a renown jewelry store in New York City. They browsed through cases of magnificent diamonds with their gleaming yellow light along with many other splendid precious stones. Among those beautiful stones, one in particular caught his wife's eye. It was completely lusterless and didn't seem to be in the right place. "That is one terrible looking stone, do you see that?", the she said. The curious husband asked a clerk if they could see the stone. The clerk opened the case, took out the stone and held it in his hand for a few minutes. When he opened it, there was a perfectly flawless stone. There was not a place on it that didn't gleam with the splendor of the rainbow. "How did you do that?", they asked in surprise. "This is an opal", he replied. "It is what we call the sympathetic jewel. It only needs contact with the human hand to bring out its wonderful beauty." Merely a touch brings out this stone's beauty. We live in a world where beauty is hidden under pain, sin, and suffering. How many lives only need the warm touch of human sympathy, love, and compassion, to make them gleam with a radiant splendor? Friend, reach out and touch someone this weekend for His glory! Share with them the love of God and not only will they receive a glimmer of joy, but you will gleam with His radiance too! When the Lord asked whom shall I send, Isaiah replied "Hineni (here am I)". Let's say "Hineni" today and be used by the Lord to bring out the beauty of those around us!
