Dramatic Drop In Murder After D.C. Prayer Event

In mid July of 2006, the Christian Defense Coalition ( Contact: Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Christian Defense Coalition, 202-547-1735, 540-538-4741 cell) organized a week long 24 hour prayer vigil under a large tent on the Mall following the announcement of a "crime emergency" by Washington, D.C. officials.

Now, 6 months later, official reports say that there was a 27% drop in murder in the murder capitol of the US But, this was probably just a coincidence, right? Did anyplace else with a population this size see this sort of drop?

Demons Or God ?

Well, I guess I found more to say tonight.
Tonight we take a quiz.
The quiz is called ... "Demonic Influence Or Godly Influence ?"
I show a picture, you tell me if it was a demon that influenced this or a loving God.
Well, let's play then. Here is picture number one.

OK, Demonic influence or Godly influence ? Ready for picture number two?

Demonic influence or Godly influence ? Both were pictures of people who are under the influence of demons. How did you do?
This is how some Muslims celebrate a holiday called Ashura. This day is well-known because of mourning for the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala in the year 61 AH (AD 680).
Now there's an oxymoron.... "Happy Ashura"

Eagle Carrying Deer Head Snags Power Line And Causes Power Outage

Just so you know that I am still here I am going to post something strange today.

An eagle who was checking out the local dump in Alaska found a prize too good to pass up. He grabbed the deer head discarded by a hunter in his claws and took off flying. But he was just a little short of power on the take off and snagged the power line. There was an explosion and the eagle was dead on the scene. The deer head was found near its carcass.

No prophetic significance. Just very strange. Read more here.

This is the comet sweeping into its orbit around the sun. Wow ! Be sure to watch the stars moving in the background also as the earth and sun sweep through our galaxy.

Chagas Parasite Disease Now In Louisiana

Chagas is known as the "kissing bug" because at night as person sleeps it crawls up and drinks the saliva at the edges of a persons mouth and at the same time defecates and urinates. In that fecal material dwells a parasite that enters the persons body, is incurable, and eventually kills the person by destroying the heart.

Some experts estimate the number of people in Latin American countries who have this disease to be 25%. About 25% of these will suffer heart damage. So .o6% of the population suffers heart damage from this one bug. You can read the Wikipedia entry on this here.

What does this mean to me? I would in no way consider camping out in states below the Mason Dixon line. ;-) Actually my two youngest sons were visited by the bug one night on a trip to Costa Rica. How did we know? They had a rash around their mouths in the morning from a reaction to the fecal material. By the grace of God, the bug that attacked them was not infected with the parasite.

Info on the discovery in Louisiana is here.

World Islam Conference-World Dominion Agenda

Here is a quote from a video advertising a world conference with world Islam as the goal of establishing a Muslim superstate. (A "Caliphate")
“Third of March, 1924, the world was plungned into darkness. The Khilafah—His light, spread from East to West—for over a thousand years was brought to an end. The consequences were unimaginable: death, destruction, chaos, exploitation. After 80 years of the absence of the khilafah, the Muslim world has awakened from its slumber, and the umma [the community of all the world’s Muslims] is ready to resume its political destiny. From the darkness will emerge a new light.”

Watch this and then read the rest of this post.

This is what is going on. This is what is behind all of the news and events surrounding Islam. Is your world view anywhere nearly as aggressive? Can your beliefs stand up against this momentum?
Rev. 12:9-10 (NLT) "Anyone who is willing to hear should listen and understand. The people who are destined for prison will be arrested and taken away. Those who are destined for death will be killed. But do not be dismayed, for here is your opportunity to have endurance and faith."

Rev. 20: 4b (NLT) "And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony about Jesus, for proclaiming the word of God.... They came to life again, and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years."
