North Korean government agent spied on Christians, accepted Jesus on his deathbed

By Mark Ellis

Her parents were secret Christians in a society where any public expression of faith leads to imprisonment and possibly death. When she stumbled on their closely held secret as a young girl, she almost turned her own parents into the authorities.

“Like so many Christian families, our family was banished in the 1950s to a remote village,” Kim Sang-Hwa* told Open Doors. “They continued to hide their faith from the outside world.”

Their house was very small, and they all slept in the same room. When she was six-years-old, she woke up earlier than usual one morning. “When I opened my eyes, I saw my father and mother under the blanket and I could hear the soft noise of the radio. Later I learned they were listening to a broadcast from a Christian radio station,” she recounted.

A few years later she made an even more dramatic discovery. “When I was 12, I accidentally found a Bible my parents had hidden in their closet. I don’t know why, but I started to feel inside the cabinet with my hand, pulled out a book and began to read.”

Because of her schoolteachers’ indoctrination, she realized her discovery was dangerous and she was obligated to tell her teachers about the illegal book. FULL POST

Jim Carrey: Christ’s suffering on the cross opens the gates of heaven

By Mark Ellis

His high-energy comedic impressions approach the level of genius and have gained him a worldwide following, ever since he starred in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Dumb and Dumber in 1994.

Carrey’s spiritual journey has taken him in many directions, but at a recent visit to a charity helping the poor in Los Angeles, he made explicit references to Christ’s suffering on the cross that may signal a shift in his thinking.

Born in Ontario, Canada, Carrey was raised Roman Catholic by parents with French Canadian ancestry. He dabbled in Presbyterianism later in life, but also told Oprah Winfrey in 1997 that he is an advocate for the law of attraction.

He told Oprah that early in his career he used visualization techniques to get work. He imagined a $10,000,000 check given to him for his acting service and seven years later received a check in that exact amount for his role in Dumb and Dumber.

Carrey remains an ardent proponent of Transcendental Meditation, and seems to credit the practice for helping him to overcome depression and remove himself from Prozac and all other drugs, including coffee.

In 2010, he told 60 Minutes, “I’m a Buddhist, I’m a Christian, I’m a Muslim, I’m whatever you want me to be. It all comes down to the same thing. You’re in a loving place or you’re in an unloving place, if you’re with me right now you cannot be unhappy, it’s not possible.” FULL POST

Thousands of kids to attend ‘summer camp for jihadis’ run by terror groups

By Mark Ellis

Nearly 120,000 Palestinian kids will attend summer camps run by Hamas in Gaza according to Breitbart, citing figures supplied by the terrorist organization.

Thousands more will attend camps run by Islamic Jihad and other jihadist factions.

The children receive weapons and military training – including live shooting exercises — in addition to propaganda inciting hatred toward Jews.

Graduation ceremonies will allow the children to display their “skills” in front of Hamas officials, according to Breitbart.

“The movement strives, through the summer camps, to train an entire generation to work for the liberation of Palestine,” Usama Almuzeyni, a Hamas official, stated.

The theme chosen for this year’s summer camp is “To Jerusalem We Come.” Almuzeyni said this will “make it clear that Hamas faces one direction, and that is Jerusalem and occupied Palestine.”

According to Amuzeyni, camp activities this summer will include “cultural activities, sports and security” and teaching about “moderate” Islam.

Former ISIS teen fighter says its better to eat dirt than join ISIS

By Mark Ellis

After ISIS took over his territory in Syria, 17-year-old Ibn Mesud* joined the Cubs of the Caliphate and was heavily pressured into taking a suicide mission — told his death would be painless and he would go straight to paradise.

A shocking new video, “The Glorious Martyrs of the Islamic State,” is based on an interview with Mesud in Turkey by the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE).

“They took over our area,” Mesud recounts on the video. “They called for everyone to come to the mosques. They taught us about the Koran, about prayers and preached to us.”

Mesud admits he “was just a child…just a student.”

The ISIS fighters indoctrinated him and about 1500 other Syrian teens and pre-teens about ISIS, its “accomplishments” in Iraq, and about ISIS being “righteous.”

“We will take you to fight with us,” they told their young recruits.

Mesud’s father is disabled and unable to work. Faced with the prospect of quitting school to financially support his brothers and sisters, he decided to accept the money offered to join ISIS. FULL POST

Former Hindu’s parents opposed Jesus, until a dream about a ladder to heaven

By Mark Ellis

He came from a Hindu family that was very invested in idol worship, but a dream about Jesus and a ladder to heaven changed the course of their lives.

“Even though my entire family worshipped idols and performed all the required rituals, we had no peace in our home,” Asish Sunar explained to Biglife. “My parents fought regularly which made me very unhappy. It made me begin to question our beliefs and to search for truth.”

While most of Sunar’s family was Hindu, he had one aunt who became a follower of Jesus. “My aunt used to share the gospel with my parents, but they always refused to listen to her and rejected hearing the truth,” he recounts. “However, my aunt was able to share with me the truth of the Gospel. She encouraged me to believe in the Lord Jesus because only He can save us from our sins.

As a result of his aunt’s testimony and the power of the Word and the Spirit, Sunar was born again.

He was not fully prepared for his parents’ reaction to his newfound faith. “My parents became very upset when they learned about my conversion,” he says. “They would not allow me to meet with other Christians, so my aunt began to take care of me.” FULL POST

Netanyahu reads from Bible, counters U.N. resolution about Hebron’s Cave of the Patriarchs

By Mark Ellis

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu read a Bible passage from Genesis during his July 9th cabinet meeting to counter a resolution passed by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee declaring the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Hebron as a Palestinian heritage site, according to World Israel News (WIN).

He read aloud from Genesis 23:16-19 to his cabinet:

“And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the hearing of the children of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant…And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre–the same is Hebron–in the land of Canaan. And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a burying-place by the children of Heth.”

The prime minister noted Israel’s historical association with Hebron. “The connection between the Jewish People and Hebron and the Tomb of the Patriarchs is one of purchase and of history which may be without parallel in the history of peoples,” he affirmed.

“Of course this did not prevent the UNESCO World Heritage Committee last Friday from passing yet another delusional resolution which determined that the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the same Cave of Machpelah, is a Palestinian heritage site.” FULL POST

George Clooney: Sudan pays powerhouse D.C. lobbyist $40K a month to get sanctions removed

By Mark Ellis

It is one of the world’s worst offenders in the persecution of Christians, using starvation as a weapon of war, and is still funding militias that murder innocents. Its leader, President Omar al-Bashir, is wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.

Sudan’s government directed attacks that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of non-Arab civilians in Darfur a few years ago. In the last year, the government has demolished 27 churches, which the government claims violated land-use laws.

Yet somehow, Sudan’s government hired an influential lobbying firm in Washington, Squire Patton Boggs, for $40,000 a month to get sanctions removed by the Trump administration, George Clooney and John Prendergast charged in Time Magazine.

While Congress has led bipartisan efforts to isolate the Sudan regime, Clooney, Predergast, and many others are surprised that a respectable lobbying firm that includes former House Speaker John Boehner and former senators Trent Lott and John Breaux, has taken on Sudan as a client.

“Either they don’t know that their firm is taking $40,000 a month from the government of Sudan, or they don’t know what this regime has done,” Clooney speculated. FULL POST

New York Times claims Iran and Hezbollah are fighting terror

Iran and Hezbollah were held responsible for the Khobar Tower bombing that killed American servicemen

By Mark Ellis

The New York Times has produced a video that bends over backward to present a sympathetic portrait of Iran’s supposed fight against terrorism, especially in their opposition to ISIS.

The video: “How Iran fights — and aligns with — terrorists” was posted on YouTube by the Times on July 3rd. The narrator of the video begins by stating that “Iran has long been accused of exporting terrorism, but the country itself has been the target of attacks for decades.”

Others disagree with the sympathetic portrayal. “The New York Times paints Iran as a victim of terror attacks for decades, setting Iran up as our partner – on par with the West – because of its elaborate counter-terrorism strategy,” says Meira Svirsky, editor of the Clarion Project.

Iran was designated as a state sponsor of terrorism by the United States in 1984. “It remains one of the world’s greatest offenders today, yet the New York Times would have us believe that for the most part Iran is a victim of terrorism,” Svirsky says. FULL POST

Serious allegation: Google alters search engine to punish pro-life group

By Mark Ellis

A prominent pro-life group, Operation Rescue, alleges that Google’s search engine has been manipulated to dramatically reduce exposure to a page containing critical information about abortion on their website.

Until mid-May, the fact page, Abortions in America, was their most visited page. It previously appeared in the top five when searching “abortions in US.”

But mysteriously, the link to their page disappeared from the first page of search results and reappeared in the 25th spot on page two.

Links to the Guttmacher Institute, NPR, CNN and the New York Times appear prominently on the first page of results.

“We noticed that our web stats were a lot lower than normal,” says Cheryl Sullenger, senior vice-president of the organization. “We decided to do some investigation and that’s when I discovered that Google had been burying our most popular page.” FULL POST

Islamic preacher on Temple Mount calls for slaughter of all Americans, Europeans

Palestinian cleric Sheikh Nadhal Siam, also known as “Abu Ibrahim”

By Mark Ellis

In a fiery sermon delivered at the Al Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian cleric Sheikh Nadhal Siam, also known as “Abu Ibrahim,” condemned the Saudi and Qatari regimes for their collaboration with the U.S. and the British.

Then he prayed to Allah to “enable us to slaughter” all the Americans and Europeans and the “criminal and treacherous” Arab rulers, according to the Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI).

His vicious tirade was answered by cries of “Amen” from his audience. The video was posted on YouTube on June 18.

“Do not think that some of the collaborators are right and some are wrong,” Siam bellowed in his sermon. “They are all equally collaborators. Just as the Saudi regime is a lackey of the Americans, and is immersed in collaboration with them, the Qatari regime is a lackey of the English, and is immersed in collaboration with them. FULL POST
