Shrinking Navy

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on May 14, 2022 by andelino

Joe Biden may be increasing American defense spending, but not enough to save the U.S. Navy.

As Russian President Vladimir Putin ratcheted up the battle for control of eastern Ukraine, Joe Biden asked America’s Congress for an $813 billion defense budget next year. This budget is 10 percent larger than the current defense budget. Yet this increase is barely enough to keep pace with inflation. So, the United States Navy will continue on its trajectory toward a smaller fleet. Biden wants to spend 22 percent of next year’s defense budget on the Navy, giving the Navy enough resources to build nine new battleships while retiring 24 old battleships.

Asia Stands With Putin

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on May 10, 2022 by andelino

The West wants to isolate the Russian dictator, but most of the Eastern Hemisphere is linked to him.

Russia’s war on Ukraine has exposed Russian President Vladimir Putin as the authoritarian dictator that he is. He has forced 3 million people to flee their country, made East Europeans quake with fear, put NATO countries on alert, and caused many people to openly discuss the possibility of World War III.

Putin’s War on Russia

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on May 5, 2022 by andelino

The eyes of the world are focused on the dictator’s savagery against Ukraine. But a brutal crackdown is underway on the home front.

Did you know that Ukrainians have been grossly overreacting? It turns out that, despite the rapidly rising body count and the rapidly growing piles of rubble in Kyiv and other Ukrainian cities, Russia has not gone to war against the country.

That, at least, is the situation according to the Russian government.

About Vladimir Putin 

Posted in uncategorized with tags on April 30, 2022 by andelino

The world has been shocked by the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Authorities are still uncovering bodies, many of them tortured, in the area around Kyiv. But if people really understood the background of this man, they would not be surprised.

Russia is a rival power to the United States. It fought America in the Cold War, and its socialist ideology has infiltrated American universities, news corporations, government and culture since the 1960s. It is also a major antagonist toward Eastern Europe and Europe as a whole, which America has treated as its allies. And it is not afraid to assault nations like Georgia, Ukraine or Syria. Its nuclear arsenal and delivery systems rival those of the United States.

Obama Disarms Ukraine

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on March 25, 2022 by andelino

What is the current administration’s endgame in Eastern Europe?

Barack Obama has condemned Vladimir Putin’s attack on Ukraine and called on all Americans to impose sanctions on Russia even if doing so hurts the United States economy. His statements make him sound like a strong ally of Ukraine, ready to do whatever it takes to protect innocents from harm. But there is more to this story than meets the eye. When you examine Obama’s career, you find that he has done everything in his power to encourage the current invasion.

Invasion of Ukraine 

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on March 13, 2022 by andelino

Vladimir Putin’s dramatic invasion of Ukraine is not surprising. How and when will it end?

The world woke this morning to stunning images of Vladimir Putin invading Ukraine.

Russian missiles are striking targets across most of Ukraine. Artillery shells are raining down on towns, cities and key infrastructure. Buildings are on fire and there are already multiple civilian causalities. Russian paratroopers have captured an airfield near Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital city. Meanwhile, Russian tanks and soldiers continue to roll into Ukraine.

Pope Meets Putin

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on February 16, 2022 by andelino

The Ukraine crisis is also about religion.

The Vatican’s role in Ukraine is perplexing to many. Ukrainian Christians are crying out to Pope Francis—but are ignored. The pope has condemned Islamic terrorism as well as the Jan. 6, 2021, United States Capitol protests. He has strongly opposed other conflicts and leaders. But he refuses to say anything negative about Russian President Vladimir Putin and the bloodshed he threatens in Ukraine. His message to Ukrainians can be, at best, interpreted as one of appeasement and, at worst, of surrender.

Though it appears the pope is looking the other way, there are indications the Vatican has deep personal interests in the conflict. These interests seem to be known by high-ranking German military officers but have been hid from the public. The Vatican and Moscow may have made a historic, well-calculated deal.

NSA Surveillance

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2021 by andelino

Eight years ago, the Guardian newspaper confirmed that the United States National Security Agency was conducting widespread, untargeted, domestic surveillance on millions of American citizens. In a report by Glenn Greenwald, the paper published an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court directing Verizon to give the National Security Agency (NSA) a record of every Verizon customer’s call history, regardless of whether the individual was suspected of any wrongdoing.

Shortly after Greenwald exposed this unconstitutional surveillance, NSA contractor Edward Snowden provided proof that Big Brother not only eavesdrops on you, it also reads your mail. Specifically, Snowden exposed a program called PRISM. This was a spying program in which nine major tech companies (AOL, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, PalTalk, Skype, Yahoo and YouTube) provided the NSA and Federal Bureau of Investigation with their users’ e-mail messages, audio and video recordings, photographs, documents and location data.

Why did the government need this data? A recent NSA scandal involving talk show host Tucker Carlson sheds light on why government agents may be reading your texts.

Carlson accused the National Security Agency of searching his e-mails for damaging material that would force Fox News to take his television show off the air. “It’s not just political protests that the government is spying on,” he said. “Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the U.S. government who reached out to warn us that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic communications and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off the air.”

Carlson’s claim elicited a rare public denial from the NSA. “This allegation is untrue,” read a statement posted on the NSA’s Twitter account. “Tucker Carlson has never been an intelligence target of the Agency and the NSA has never had any plans to try to take his program off the air.” Yet the most significant thing about this denial is what it does not mention.

Former Central Intelligence Agency analyst Fred Fleitz noted that the NSA has not actually denied reading Carlson’s e-mail. Rather, it emphasized that Carlson was not an “intelligence target” and that the NSA “never had any plans to try to take his program off the air.” But since the NSA is conducting untargeted surveillance on millions of Americans, it did not have to target Carlson to get his e-mails—it already had them.

So the real question is not: Was the National Security Agency monitoring the electronic communications of Tucker Carlson? The real question is: “Why did the National Security Agency pull Carlson’s file?”

According to Axios political correspondent Jonathan Swan, Carlson was talking to U.S.-based Kremlin intermediaries about setting up an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin shortly before he found out about the spying scandal. Journalists routinely reach out to world leaders to request interviews, but Carlson did not tell anyone other than his executive producer about the potential interview.

So how did Swan find out about it? Swan cited anonymous sources “familiar with the conversations,” and the whistleblower who talked to Carlson told him that sources in the intelligence community had revealed the content of his e-mails to a reporter in Washington, D.C.

The practice of revealing the names of American citizens corresponding with foreign nationals under NSA surveillance is called unmasking, and it can only be done at the request of officials with proper security clearance, provided they have a good reason.

According to Fleitz, the order to unmask Carlson probably had to come from senior U.S. officials. Only a small cadre of trusted staff at the NSA is part of the unmasking process, so the order to leak Carlson’s e-mails to a D.C. reporter almost certainly came from the White House.

Fleitz says he cannot think of a valid reason why a White House official would want to unmask the name of a U.S. journalist, but Carlson claims to know the reason. He says the NSA leaked his e-mails in a premeditated effort to “paint me as a disloyal American, a Russian operative (I’ve been called that before), a stooge of the Kremlin, a traitor doing the bidding of a foreign adversary.”

If this was the NSA’s motive, it would not be the first time it spied on an innocent American and then leaked out-of-context information to the media to destroy his political career.

President Obama met with some of his top intelligence officials on Jan. 5, 2017, to discuss the dangers Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn could pose to his legacy. Handwritten notes from FBI agent Peter Strzok show that Obama brought up details about private conversations between General Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. This shows that Obama’s NSA had been monitoring General Flynn’s phone calls and relaying the details to the president.

Seven days after this meeting, the Washington Post’s David Ignatius published a story about Flynn’s contacts with the ambassador. How did Ignatius know about the content of Flynn’s phone calls? The Obama administration illegally leaked that information to him in an attempt to frame General Flynn.

Now the Biden administration is attempting to do the same thing to Tucker Carlson. It does not take much imagination to visualize how the Biden administration could use mass surveillance technology against a lot more political opponents than just Donald Trump, Michael Flynn and Tucker Carlson.

In Communist China, the government assigns citizens a “trustworthiness” score based on data gathered by mass surveillance. If a Chinese citizen makes a political post online without a permit or questions a government decision, his trustworthiness score goes down and the police may show up at his door.

That is the power the Chinese Communist Party has garnered by trawling through troves of social media and online shopping data. And the U.S. government has the same power if it chooses to use it.

When Sen. Frank Church led an investigation into CIA, FBI and NSA activities in the 1970s, he warned that technological advancements were giving these agencies unprecedented surveillance powers. “If this government ever became a tyranny, if a dictator ever took charge in this country, the technological capacity that the intelligence community has given the government could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back because the most careful effort to combine together in resistance to the government, no matter how privately it was done, is within the reach of the government to know,” he said on NBC’s Meet the Press. “I don’t want to see this country ever go across the bridge. I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision so that we never cross over that abyss.”

More recently, NSA whistleblower William Binney told James Bamford that the NSA was building a turnkey totalitarian state, where all the government had to do was turn the key and start up a totalitarian dictatorship far worse than the one in China.

Many believe that if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 presidential election, the “deep state” officials who were building the turnkey totalitarian state Binney warned about would have been able to continue running the country behind the scenes, thus ending our constitutional republic. The only reason this did not happen is that God showed mercy and raised up President Donald Trump to expose what was happening. Now the Biden administration has picked up where the Obama administration left off and is targeting all who oppose its agenda to fundamentally transform America.

Millions of Americans are waking up to the threat the deep state poses to the nation, but they still do not understand the root causes behind the crisis. The Bible reveals that the serious problems in America’s government are not caused by one man or a group of government officials. Ultimately, they are caused by the sins of the American people as a whole (Isaiah 1:4-7).

Only repentance by the people can prevent the sickness in America’s government from escalating into full-scale revolution and civil war.

A Nuclear World

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 16, 2021 by andelino

“Useless at best, detrimental at worst.” That is how the late Charles Krauthammer described an agreement the Obama administration made with Russia in 2009 for the two nations to dismantle equal numbers of nuclear weapons from their stockpiles.

The deal was detrimental for the United States because it obligated it to eliminate state-of-the-art defensive weapons while Russia dismantled Soviet-era weapons that were strictly offensive in nature, archaic weapons that would have done little more than—as Winston Churchill once phrased it—“make the rubble bounce.”

At that point, Russia’s nuclear stockpiles were too primitive to make the deal even close to equal. And it did nothing to truly make the world safer. But much has changed in the 12 years since.

In his April 21 State of the Nation Address Russian President Vladimir Putin said, “The share of advanced weapons and hardware … in the nuclear triad … will exceed 88 percent already this year.”

This means that of all the warheads, intercontinental ballistic missiles, strategic aircraft, submarines and other components of Russia’s nuclear program, almost 90 percent have been modernized. In many cases, Russian versions of this deadly technology are comparable to the U.S. arsenal. Some of these weapons systems, such as hypersonic missiles, are believed to exceed their American counterparts.

Putin went on to say Russia is determined to continue “qualitatively strengthening” all aspects of its armed forces in order to keep closing the gap with the United States.

Even as Russians have suffered years of serious economic strain—exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic and government lockdowns—Putin has always found room in the budget to spend billions annually on the military, especially on nuclear weapons. He is dead set on making them as state-of-the-art, lethal and unstoppable as possible.

The same day that Putin made his speech about Russia’s nuclear advances, Reuters published a report about China that can only be called a bombshell. In recent years, China has devoted billions of dollars in resources to building a new generation of advanced nuclear-power facilities. China’s ruling Communist Party has emphasized that these new plants are intended only to generate cleaner power by reducing its prodigious coal consumption. But the April 21 Reuters report states that the fast-breeder reactors at these facilities produce large amounts of the fundamental material used in advanced nuclear weapons.

“With a fast-breeder reactor, you now have a very large source of weapons-grade plutonium available to you,” the report quotes Navy Adm. Charles Richard, the commander of the U.S. Strategic Command, as saying. “That will change the upper bounds of what China could choose to do if they wanted to, in terms of further expansion of their nuclear capabilities.”

China is believed to have only 200 or so nuclear warheads. But whispers out of Beijing indicate that some Communist Party leaders want their arsenal to compare better to that of the U.S. (an estimated 5,800 warheads) and that of Russia (an estimated 6,375 warheads). It is hard to imagine that the new Chinese plants won’t help fulfill this ambition. The first one is scheduled to open in 2023.

In recent months, Iran has also advanced its nuclear weapons program. This fanatical regime could be mere months away from producing its first nuclear bomb. The also-fanatical and even less stable North Korean regime has improved its delivery systems for the nuclear weapons it already possesses. German military personnel have received more training on how to mobilize and drop the nuclear bombs that America has stocked in Germany. And more questions and concerns have emerged over how vulnerable Pakistan’s nuclear weapons are to terrorist hijacking, especially as America pulls out of neighboring Afghanistan.

Moreover, discussions have opened about the possibility of other nations—namely Japan, Poland, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey and Ukraine—obtaining nuclear arsenals of their own.

In so many nations, nuclear developments are underway that expose the fragility of the global peace. They show that all of the attempts by the United Nations and other international organizations to reduce the nuclear threat have failed. None of man’s various disarmament efforts, peace plans or treaties have been able to secure sure and lasting peace.

All such deals lack a safeguard that can forcibly prevent the use of these unfathomably destructive weapons. And there is no true cause for hope.

During that age of Roman rule, warfare entailed hand-to-hand combat with swords, javelins, bows and slings. The closest thing to a weapon of mass destruction was probably an onager catapult. Even after another millennium had passed, Genghis Khan’s soldiers were armed with comparable weaponry: crossbows, sabers, re-curved bows and trebuchets. With these, the Mongols killed some 40 million people, one 10th of the total world population. By the 1400s, the arrival of gunpowder had led to widespread use of muskets and cannons. These developments greatly boosted a soldier’s killing efficiency. Yet even then, mankind still could not wage a war that “not a single person” could survive.

With the First World War came more major advances in weapons technology. Improved artillery and rifles, machine guns, poison gas, land mines, grenades, flamethrowers, tanks, bomb-dropping aircraft and torpedo-firing submarines made killing people unprecedentedly efficient. Mechanization of weapons in that conflict contributed to the deaths of 18 million people. In World War II, humankind took a quantum leap into the future of killing technology. Some 60 million people were wiped out by vastly improved artillery, proximity fuses, fighter jets, aircraft carriers, rockets, and finally—and most ominously—two atomic bombs.

A decade after World War II’s end, a major prophetic milestone was crossed. “Total annihilation of the human race by warfare was never possible—at any time in world history—until 1955! The Encyclopedia Britannica reports, ‘In August 1955 there was a general conviction among the governments that both sides in the Cold War had sufficient retaliatory power to make hydrogen bomb war suicidal’!”

So at that time, enough nuclear bombs had been built to blast all human life off the planet. The type of war Christ had warned about 2,000 years earlier had finally become not just possible—but dangerously probable.

This fact helps us see that many key Bible prophecies about World War III, including Matthew 24:21, could only be fulfilled in the modern, nuclear era. Today, the nations continue to hold each other at nuclear gunpoint—and the risks of these weapons being used are growing. When a global nuclear war erupts, millions of people will suffer nuclear fire, and millions more will suffer nuclear winter. Jeremiah 2:15 shows that some cities will be entirely scorched by nuclear devastation, without a single survivor. The worldwide carnage will threaten the existence of human life itself.

But the Bible’s prophecies do not end with nuclear war annihilating mankind. Continuing in Matthew 24, just after Jesus said that nuclear war in this age would be so devastating that it could wipe out humanity, He added a crucial detail: “But it will be shortened” (verse 22).

From this it is clear that nuclear World War III will erupt, but God will not allow it to run its course. Before Russia, China and other world powers detonate enough weapons to make man extinct, Jesus Christ will interrupt the carnage.

“The good news is God will shorten the time span and save us alive. But if He did not intervene, there wouldn’t be anyone alive on this planet. He will let it go a long way so that people learn they can’t rule themselves. Men don’t know the way of peace. God knows—and if you keep His law of love, it will bring great joy and peace into your life.”

Just after that time of unprecedented war, Christ will institute an epoch of unprecedented peace. Amos 9:14 shows that the devastated cities will then be rebuilt. They will become bastions of life and prosperity. Jeremiah makes clear that as the massive rebuilding project progresses, each individual will come to know the true God. Every person will learn to keep His law. As a result, “great joy and peace” will begin to fill the whole world.

“We are now at the edge of this nuclear abyss. But as all these horrible signs come to pass, we know Christ is about to return.” These are vital truths to understand: both the warning of war on the horizon and the good news about the hope just beyond it.

Fake Biden Coronation

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on November 14, 2020 by andelino

After days of deliberating over which states to call and when, every major news network in America was in perfect unison on Saturday, November 7, at 11:30 a.m. when they decided Joe Biden was the 46th president of the United States.

We have come to expect this from mainstream news commentators. They treated the Trump–Russia collusion narrative—a complete fabrication—like credible news. They treated President Donald Trump’s impeachment as if it weren’t a sham. They amplified the officials who politicized the covid-19 pandemic for the purposes of forcing the nation to shut down and harm the president. Now they are attempting to collude with Democrats to rig an election.

For four years, we have seen an avalanche of fake news, fake scandals and phony investigations based on specious and forged evidence. And in the last few months, we’ve seen all the fake polls designed to create an illusion—a fake narrative that led into a fraudulent and phony election full of fake votes that produced, according to the fake news, a fake president of the United States.

The propaganda wing of the Democratic Party has spoken, and they say Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. It doesn’t matter how many voting irregularities there were.

they ignore the inexplicable termination of counting on election night;
the laughable “Biden only” ballot drops during the dead of night;
the software “glitches” that swapped thousands of Trump votes for Biden;
the tens of thousands of votes submitted after Election Day;
the postal workers charged with backdating illegal ballots;
the improbably high percentage of voter turnout in Wisconsin and parts of Michigan;
the Republicans blocked from observing the counting process in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Atlanta;
the number of non-Nevada voters who voted for Biden in Nevada;
those who voted multiple times;
and the Election Day miracle that saw the graves of our fellow Americans open wide so tens of thousands of cadavers could vote for Joe Biden.

None of this matters to the media mob.

But at least a few, like South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, have denounced Joe Biden’s premature declaration of victory.

When news anchor George Stephanopoulos asked Governor Noem on Sunday if she would be willing to work with Biden to reduce covid-19 rates in her state, Noem said: “This is a premature conversation because we have not finished counting votes. There are states that have not been called, and back in 2000, Al Gore was given his day in court. We should give President Trump his day in court. Let the process unfold because, George, we live in a republic.”

Governor Noem makes a good point. If the media are so sure Joe Biden won fair and square, what are they afraid of? They gave former Vice President Al Gore 37 days to challenge the 2000 U.S. presidential election, but are now moving to impose Joe Biden on the country amid ongoing recount requests and legal battles. They want to make it look like a Biden presidency is inevitable. They want to run out the clock before the countless voter fraud allegations are thoroughly investigated.

Keep in mind, states have not yet certified their election results, recounts have not yet started in Wisconsin and Georgia, and the Supreme Court has not yet ruled on those Pennsylvania ballots that came in after the deadline.

On Election Day, the New York Times posted this revealing tweet: “The role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the news media. The broadcast networks and cable news outlets have vowed to be prudent.”

They later deleted this tweet, saying, “We’ve deleted an earlier tweet that referred imprecisely to the role of the news media in the U.S. presidential election. The news media projects winners and reports results; it does not declare the winner of the election.”

After a severe backlash, the Times essentially apologized for overstepping its bounds. Then, five days later, they joined the media mob in declaring Joe Biden the winner! The news media’s role is to report facts, including credible evidence of election fraud, recounts and other pertinent information.

But it has instead colluded to declare a radical new administration. And the whole world is expected to follow along. Many people are following along. Even many conservatives and Christians who strongly oppose Biden and the radical Democratic Party feel there is nothing they can do.

But when practically every prominent and powerful voice says, “This is the way it’s going to be, no dissent tolerated”, that is when God’s servants speak up and say, “This is what God says!” Even though the mainstream media had declared Biden as the winner of the election, “that’s not going to remain that way, even though it certainly looks like it.”

The United States of America may soon experience its own miraculous victory as God intervenes as recorded in Scripture. The fight is far from over. President Donald Trump’s litigation effort is only starting.

As of today, it still is unclear to Americans who has won the 2020 presidential election. But adversaries of the United States were able to see one thing plainly: “The deep divides of American society that were made ever deeper by the election mean the nation is weakening, creating space for U.S. rivals to assert their will with a freer hand.”

Richard Berry, a commentator for Goodmoneyguide.com, said that America’s democratic dysfunction has two world leaders particularly delighted. “Two presidents have emerged as clear winners of the U.S. election. Unfortunately, they’re sitting in Beijing and Moscow.”

It is not difficult to see how these two leaders, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, are “winners” of a divided and distracted America.

First, both of these men wish to better dominate their own nations, and a de-legitimized American democracy helps them tighten their dictatorial power grips. Peter Kammerer of the South China Morning Post explained: Xi and Putin have held on to power by convincing their citizens that their systems of government are superior to the democracies of the West.” And all of America’s dysfunction and division “have made it easy for the Chinese and Russian leaders to contend that democracy is broken, corrupt and damaging.”

Secondly, Putin and Xi both seek for their nations to dominate more of the globe. And both understand this can be achieved more quickly if America is divided and distracted.

Vasily Kashin, senior research fellow at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, said: “What is important is not Biden or Trump occupying the White House, but the degree of the American political and economic crisis. With the current course of events, that crisis can be expected to deepen, weakening the U.S. globally.”

And a globally weaker U.S. means the force that has prevented aggressor nations from running roughshod over the world for 75 years is now on the back foot. America is distracted by internal afflictions and thus less capable of policing the world—including by challenging Russian and Chinese adventurism beyond their borders.

“Sickness saps a nation’s vitality as surely as it does a man’s. Initiative and energy are diverted, consumed by internal battles. Americans are so fixated on the divisions that are devouring us, we have lost sight of the rest of the world, and of our example, and our obligation to lead. It truly is the world’s loss.”

Truly, America’s political crisis is the world’s loss. And it is Russia’s and China’s gain. It should come as no surprise to see how delighted many in Russia and China have been by the U.S.’s dysfunction.

China’s state-run Global Times, which functions as a mouthpiece for the Chinese Communist Party, has breathlessly commented on America’s election troubles. It wrote “What is happening during the U.S. election is something that we could have never imaged in this ‘Beacon of Freedom. Disputes, chaos and the refusal of election results by certain candidates were supposed to take place in developing countries where political conditions were not stable and definitely not in a country like the U.S. But things have changed, all these have occurred in the U.S., and the U.S. is not synonymous to a stable, civilized and consensus-based society anymore.”

The publication added: “This is costing the U.S.’s international reputation as well.” Global Times editor in chief Hu Xijin tweeted on Election Day that the unrest and fear show that the “U.S. is in degradation.”

“Ahead of the election, some businesses in the US are boarding up their store windows fearing post-election unrest. This kind of unrest is usually complication of elections in poor countries, but people are worried it may appear in the US. The US is in degradation.”  pic.twitter.com/bBzPiwhVgg — Hu Xijin 胡锡进 (@HuXijin_GT) November 3, 2020

For decades, American supremacy has brought stability to much of the world. But as more and more power is being shifted away from us, the “freer hand” that Russia and China will have as America continues to succumb to its internal afflictions will only speed the shift of global power away from America and toward these other nations.

This shift in global power is deeply alarming and terrifying news. “People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.” (Luke 21:26)

Notice the very next verse! “At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” (verse 27). These times of the Gentiles lead directly to the return of Jesus Christ!

Now that is good news!
