On March 19, 2023, the All Israel News reported the newly proposed legislation to outlaw sharing the gospel message in Israel.
“In what may seem like a strange action in the nation that gave birth to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, some lawmakers in Israel are now looking to send Christians to prison for sharing the Gospel of Jesus in their country. Legislation has been introduced by Knesset Members Moshe Gafni and Yaakov Asher, two ultra-Orthodox members of Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition government, seeking to toss people in prison for spreading the Good News of eternal life offered by the Son of God. The proposed law makes it illegal to share Christian messages in conversation in person, online, as well as in print or by email. Violators would be imprisoned for a year, with the punishment doubled to two years if believers are witnessing to someone under the age of 18.” Source.

China: Years of Lockdown Abuses Trigger Anti-Communist Protests Nationwide. Protesters thronged the streets of cities across China over the weekend – defying a brutal crackdown from the Communist regime – to demand an end to coronavirus lockdowns and the resignation of dictator Xi Jinping. The protests quickly grew to astonishing size after an apartment building fire killed 10 people in Urumqi, the locked-down capital of occupied East Turkistan, where China is currently committing genocide against the indigenous Uyghur Muslims of the region… Protesters in the city of Guangzhou lined the streets with tents because they assumed the regime would use its dystopian “health code software” to lock them out of their homes as punishment… If Chinese government remotely switches your health passport to code yellow, you will become homeless. Because with yellow code on your phone, you can’t go back to your apartment, stay at hotel, take any public transport… trouble to get food too.” – Source.
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila has begun construction on an exorcism center in the Philippines, calling it the “first of its kind in Asia, if not the world.” The Saint Michael Center for Spiritual Liberation and Exorcism, which broke ground in Makati City on May 17, will house the offices of the ecclesiastical district’s Commission on Extraordinary Phenomena, the Ministry of Exorcism and the Ministry on Visions and Phenomena… Exorcism, a religious rite believed to drive out demons or other spiritual entities from possessed individuals, is mostly associated with the Catholic Church but is also practiced in other religions. According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), exorcism is necessary “when a person needs to be protected against the power of the devil or to be withdrawn from his spiritual dominion. The Catholic Church only allows certain Catholic priests to perform an exorcism with the permission of a bishop. In modern times, a medical professional must first rule out any mental health issues before an exorcism is performed on an individual.”- SOURCE.

Reuters just announced “‘It’s okay to feel scared’” (Source) But as Christians that trust the Lord, no, it is not “ok to feel scared.” Despair is sin. In fact, as I stated in a video back in 2018, fear keeps you OUT of Heaven!
As prophesied, the powers that be are doing this to cultivate fear because it makes it that much easier to control the masses. Moving one man away from his opinion or even his morals can be very difficult for the powers that be. But put that man in a crowd filled with fear and he will follow the herd wherever they are told to go.
“The Trump administration will unveil a new plan Monday to roll back limits on a controversial program that provides local law enforcement agencies with surplus military gear, marking the end of a policy implemented during the Obama administration. President Barack Obama issued an executive order in 2015 prohibiting the transfer of a host of equipment, including armored vehicles, grenade launchers, high-caliber weapons and camouflage uniforms following controversy over the “militarization” of the police response to unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.” –Source
