NORTH KOREA RELEASES HYEON LIM

A Canadian pastor freed from a North Korean prison on humanitarian grounds is healthy and not in critical condition, his family said on Thursday. Hyeon Soo Lim, who served in one of the largest churches in Canada, had been sentenced to hard labor for life in December 2015 after North Korea accused him of attempting to overthrow the regime. On Wednesday, North Korea’s KCNA news agency said he was released on “sick bail.” Lim is expected to return to Canada later on Thursday, a source familiar with the matter said on…

KNOWLEDGE

Psalm 119:11 says “Your word have I hidden in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Many contemporaries of Daniel may have looked back at their experiences and their losses and determined to start a completely new way of life away from home with no hope of returning to Judah. What therefore may have given them assurance and kept them obedient to God’s word? It was KNOWLEDGE among other things. Daniel 1:17 says: As for these four young men, God gave them KNOWLEDGE and skill in all literature…

‘THEIR GOD IS MY GOD’, REMEMBERING AYAIRGA, THE CHADIAN MARTYR

Most of us are familiar with the story of the 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt who held fast to their faith and were beheaded by ISIS in February, 2015. But did you know that only 20 of them were actually Copts from Egypt? Did you know that one of the martyrs was from Chad, and he had not been a Christian prior to the day of his beheading? Although this story was previously reported, I had not heard it before this week. But at this week’s World Summit in Defense of…

DUBAI’S FIRST ‘ROBOCOP’ BEGINS PATROLLING STREETS

The world’s first robot policeman has officially joined Dubai’s police force. While it’s not exactly the Robocop from the movie, officers in the United Arab Emirates may want to get used to them, as the bots may soon account for a quarter of their colleagues. The autonomous Robocop entered the line of duty on Sunday by greeting guests and patrolling the halls at the three-day Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (GISEC). Plans are in place to have the machine on the streets in popular Dubai areas when the expo…

A Wary Welcome By The Once Adoring Right Wing For Trump In Israel

By Ben Manson. Credit: yahoo.com/news Trump’s pointed rhetoric toward Iran and his sharp criticism of the Iranian nuclear deal, the appointment of the right-wing lawyer David Friedman as ambassador to Israel, and the presence by his side of his Orthodox Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner, were believed to assure that he would look the other way when it came to the ever-controversial “settler agenda” for territorial expansion. A poll taken not long after the election showed that 83 percent of Israelis considered Trump pro-Israel. (In contrast, 63 percent said that Barack Obama…

A MUST READ: PERETTI’S “PIERCING THE DARKNESS”

I finished reading this book for the second time last night, it was like I was reading it for the first time. I still got goose bumps and I still rattled in tongues spontaneously through the chapters. Every once in a while someone creates something extraordinary and the dictionary word for it I believe is ‘epic’. Frank Peretti’s Piercing The Darkness is Epic! It’s a Christian novel but I’m sure anyone who reads it will be touched, there’ll be an impact in the readers’ spirit, because God himself influenced Peretti…

POPE FRANCIS CONTINUES TO SET THE STAGE FOR A ONE-WORLD RELIGION

When I first started seeing headlines that claimed that Pope Francis said that “Muslim terrorism does not exist,” I thought it couldn’t possibly be true. After all, who could possibly deny that Islamic radicals are engaged in terrorism? Within the last 30 days, there have been 127 Islamic terror attacks in a total of 25 different countries. And in 2016 global terror attacks set an all-time record high and were up 25 percent from the year before. Unfortunately, there are many world leaders that are so politically correct and that are so married to…
