The award comes just a few weeks after Rogers said that Snowden, who has been assured by Moscow that he doesn’t need to leave when his asylum year is up, is now believed to be working for his Russian hosts.
There Are No Such Things as ‘Scientists’
By Frank J. Fleming
PJ Media on Facebook PJ Media on Twitter PJ Media on Google+
Our society holds scientists in high esteem. When scientists say something — whether it’s about the composition of matter, the beginning of the universe, or who would win a fight between a giant gorilla and a T. Rex — we all sit up and listen. And it doesn’t matter if they say something that sounds completely ridiculous; as long as a statement is preceded with “scientists say,” we assume it is truth.

The Qur’an allows for the owning of sex slaves: If you fear that you will not act justly towards the orphans, marry such women as seem good to you, two, three, four; but if you fear you will not be equitable, then only one, or what your right hands own; so it is likelier you […]

Library of Staffanstorp, after being visited by “youths.” Books are impure… Swedish media never give any description of criminals, to avoid people forming a negative view of Muslims and the government’s immigration policy.

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon - 16th April

Tag: Verse of the DaySage @ 1:45 pm

Morning

=======

“The precious blood of Christ.” / 1 Peter 1:19 [show/hide]ERROR: You have exceeded your quota of 5000 requests per day. Please contact the developer of this application if you have questions. (If you're the developer and have questions about this error message, please contact Crossway.)
This text is from the ESV Bible. Visit www.esv.org to learn about the ESV.

Standing at the foot of the cross, we see hands, and feet, and side, all distilling crimson streams of precious blood. It is “precious” because of its redeeming and atoning efficacy. By it the sins of Christ’s people are atoned for; they are redeemed from under the law; they are reconciled to God, made one with him. Christ’s blood is also “precious” in its cleansing power; it “cleanseth from all sin.” “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” Through Jesus’ blood there is not a spot left upon any believer, no wrinkle nor any such thing remains. O precious blood, which makes us clean, removing the stains of abundant iniquity, and permitting us to stand accepted in the Beloved, notwithstanding the many ways in which we have rebelled against our God. The blood of Christ is likewise “precious” in its preserving power. We are safe from the destroying angel under the sprinkled blood. Remember it is God’s seeing the blood which is the true reason for our being spared. Here is comfort for us when the eye of faith is dim, for God’s eye is still the same. The blood of Christ is “precious” also in its sanctifying influence. The same blood which justifies by taking away sin, does in its after-action, quicken the new nature and lead it onward to subdue sin and to follow out the commands of God. There is no motive for holiness so great as that which streams from the veins of Jesus. And “precious,”

unspeakably precious, is this blood, because it has an overcoming power. It is written, “They overcame through the blood of the Lamb.” How could they do otherwise? He who fights with the precious blood of Jesus, fights with a weapon which cannot know defeat. The blood of Jesus! sin dies at its presence, death ceases to be death: heaven’s gates are opened. The blood of Jesus! we shall march on, conquering and to conquer, so long as we can trust its power!

Evening

“And his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.” / Exodus 17:12 [show/hide]ERROR: You have exceeded your quota of 5000 requests per day. Please contact the developer of this application if you have questions. (If you're the developer and have questions about this error message, please contact Crossway.)
This text is from the ESV Bible. Visit www.esv.org to learn about the ESV.

So mighty was the prayer of Moses, that all depended upon it. The petitions of Moses discomfited the enemy more than the fighting of Joshua. Yet both were needed. So, in the soul’s conflict, force and fervour, decision and devotion, valour and vehemence, must join their forces, and all will be well. You must wrestle with your sin, but the major part of the wrestling must be done alone in private with God. Prayer, like Moses’, holds up the token of the covenant before the Lord. The rod was the emblem of God’s working with Moses, the symbol of God’s government in Israel. Learn, O pleading saint, to hold up the promise and the oath of God before him. The Lord cannot deny his own declarations. Hold up the rod of promise, and have what you will.

Moses grew weary, and then his friends assisted him. When at any time your prayer flags, let faith support one hand, and let holy hope uplift the other, and prayer seating itself upon the stone of Israel, the rock of our salvation, will persevere and prevail. Beware of faintness in devotion; if Moses felt it, who can escape? It is far easier to fight with sin in public, than to pray against it in private. It is remarked that Joshua never grew weary in the fighting, but Moses did grow weary in the praying; the more spiritual an exercise, the more difficult it is for flesh and blood to maintain it. Let us cry, then, for special strength, and may the Spirit of God, who helpeth our infirmities, as he allowed help to Moses, enable us like him to continue with our hands steady “until the going down of the sun;” till the evening of life is over; till we shall come to the rising of a better sun in the land where prayer is swallowed up in praise.

He said, ‘Go tell my brethren;’ and away she went to tell others that she had found the Saviour. If you have the privilege of seeing Christ, do not eat the morsel behind the door. Have you found honey? Taste it yourself, but go and tell others. You cannot have seen much of the Saviour, unless you desire to let others see him. Your piety is a mere sham if it does not lead to practical service. Are there not some Mary Magdalenes here who have had seven devils cast out of them? You have felt the power of divine grace in your heart; you love the Saviour; you long for communion with him. My dear sister, as soon as you have fellowship, do not be afraid to speak to others what the Lord shall say in private to you. We do not want women to enter the pulpit; that is a violation both of grace and nature, and as much an offence to good manners as it is to God’s own law; but you have your own sphere, you have your own place of work, you can gather your own sex about you, also your children; you have many opportunities; tell others that Jesus has risen, that there is a risen life; that you know it, and that you pant and long that others too should rise from the grave of sin to the new life in Jesus.

As for you, men and brethren, to whom it pertains more particularly to be teachers and pastors, I charge you, whatsoever you have found within the circle of fire where the closest communion is, whatsoever Christ has revealed to you in hours of retirement when you have come nearest to him, tell it to his family, feed his flock with it.

C.S. Lewis Daily - From Mere Christianity

Tag: C.S. Lewis: Mere ChristianitySage @ 1:35 pm

C.S. Lewis Daily

The more we get what we now call ‘ourselves’ out of the way and let Him take us over, the more truly ourselves we become. There is so much of Him that millions and millions of ‘little Christs’, all different, will still be too few to express Him fully. He made them all. He invented— as an author invents characters in a novel—all the different men that you and I were intended to be. In that sense our real selves are all waiting for us in Him. It is no good trying to ‘be myself’ without Him. The more I resist Him and try to live on my own, the more I become dominated by my own heredity and upbringing and surroundings and natural desires. In fact what I so proudly call ‘Myself’

becomes merely the meeting place for trains of events which I never started and which I cannot stop. What I call ‘My wishes’ become merely the desires thrown up by my physical organism or pumped into me by other men’s thoughts or even suggested to me by devils. Eggs and alcohol and a good night’s sleep will be the real origins of what I flatter myself by regarding as my own highly personal and discriminating decision to make love to the girl opposite to me in the railway carriage. Propaganda will be the real origin of what I regard as my own personal political ideas. I am not, in my natural state, nearly so much of a person as I like to believe: most of what I call ‘me’ can be very easily explained. It is when I turn to Christ, when I give myself up to His Personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.

Arms Race Goes Supersonic

Tag: Global CommentarySage @ 2:49 pm

From Prophecy News Watch.Com

The Pentagon is going hypersonic with an experimental scramjet-powered, ultrahigh speed strike vehicle as its main choice for a new long-range, rapid attack weapon. Two and a half months ago, China successfully tested its first hypersonic missile delivery vehicle, dubbed the Wu-14.

The ultrahigh speed maneuvering vehicle test represented a major challenge for current U.S. missile defenses, which are designed to counter non-maneuvering ballistic missile threats. Pentagon officials have confirmed the Chinese vehicle’s capabilities of penetrating the US missile defense system and delivering nuclear warheads with record breaking speeds. Rick Fisher, an analyst at the International Assessment and Strategy Center, also said that the Chinese were actively seeking global military power to challenge the United States.

For China, this new weapon delivery system was reportedly designed to be launched as the final stage of its intercontinental ballistic missile, which would approach its target at a velocity of up to 10 times the speed of sound. Hypersonic speed range lies between Mach 5 and Mach 10, or 3,840 to 7,680 miles per hour.

According to the Washington Times, principal deputy assistant defense secretary for research and engineering Alan R. Shaffer told a defense industry conference that “we, the U.S., do not want to be the second country to understand how to have controlled scramjet hypersonics.”

The X-51 is the Pentagon’s most promising hypersonic vehicle, a cruise missile-sized weapon powered by an advanced engine called a scramjet. Developed by Boeing, it flies at up to 3,882 mph, or Mach 5.1, and is launched from under the wing of a B-52 bomber. Another Pentagon official has said the futuristic scramjet technology is looking promising as a leading candidate for the U.S. “conventional prompt global strike” mission. Boeing’s X-51A WaveRider hypersonic vehicle, propelled by an advanced scramjet engine, could allow the U.S. military to strike targets virtually anywhere around the globe in under an hour from receiving an attack order.

In 2013, after three difficult tests, including one described awkwardly by testers as an “un-ignition event,” the X-51 achieved a test breakthrough when it traversed several thousand miles at Mach 5 speed and reached an altitude of 80,000 feet, all in the span of a 300-second flight. This was the second time it was shown that the scramjet can ignite and give positive acceleration, which according to one official is a great achievement in understanding hypersonics.

Mr. Shaffer said hypersonic weapons, when fully developed, will be less expensive than current jets and cruise missiles powered by complex turbine engines with many parts. A scramjet, or supersonic combusting ramjet, hypersonic vehicle has few moving parts. The weapons will provide “rapid, responsive strike in anti-access/access denied environments” — the Pentagon euphemism for China’s high-technology weapons designed to push U.S. forces out of Asia.

U.S. defense officials have said conventional prompt global strike technologies, once developed and deployed, could offer a partial alternative to the use of nuclear arms under certain circumstances. Some observers, though, have warned that fielding these weapons could introduce new misunderstandings into global crises, and might inadvertently increase the risk of nuclear war.

Hypersonic missile technology is currently a topic of much research and development in the United States, Russia, China, and India. Currently, the title of the fastest cruise missile in the world is held by the Russo-Indian jointly developed BrahMos cruise missile. The technology offers several advantages over conventional or supersonic missiles, namely rapid payload delivery, improved survivability against missile defense systems, and precision targeting.

Russia’s Air Force National Air and Space Intelligence Center said in its annual report that Russia is building “a new class of hypersonic vehicle” that would “allow Russian strategic missiles to penetrate missile defense systems.” Russian deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin said mid last year that Russia was experiencing a revolution in military science, and added: “Neither current nor future American missile defense systems will be able to prevent that missile from hitting a target dead on.” Moscow is also developing the S-500 air and space defense system, with interceptors capable of shooting down hypersonic missiles.

The arms race has definitely entered an interesting supersonic phase.

The Pentagon is going hypersonic with an experimental scramjet-powered, ultrahigh speed strike vehicle as its main choice for a new long-range, rapid attack weapon. Two and a half months ago, China successfully tested its first hypersonic missile delivery vehicle, dubbed the Wu-14.

The ultrahigh speed maneuvering vehicle test represented a major challenge for current U.S. missile defenses, which are designed to counter non-maneuvering ballistic missile threats. Pentagon officials have confirmed the Chinese vehicle’s capabilities of penetrating the US missile defense system and delivering nuclear warheads with record breaking speeds. Rick Fisher, an analyst at the International Assessment and Strategy Center, also said that the Chinese were actively seeking global military power to challenge the United States.

For China, this new weapon delivery system was reportedly designed to be launched as the final stage of its intercontinental ballistic missile, which would approach its target at a velocity of up to 10 times the speed of sound. Hypersonic speed range lies between Mach 5 and Mach 10, or 3,840 to 7,680 miles per hour.

According to the Washington Times, principal deputy assistant defense secretary for research and engineering Alan R. Shaffer told a defense industry conference that “we, the U.S., do not want to be the second country to understand how to have controlled scramjet hypersonics.”

The X-51 is the Pentagon’s most promising hypersonic vehicle, a cruise missile-sized weapon powered by an advanced engine called a scramjet. Developed by Boeing, it flies at up to 3,882 mph, or Mach 5.1, and is launched from under the wing of a B-52 bomber. Another Pentagon official has said the futuristic scramjet technology is looking promising as a leading candidate for the U.S. “conventional prompt global strike” mission. Boeing’s X-51A WaveRider hypersonic vehicle, propelled by an advanced scramjet engine, could allow the U.S. military to strike targets virtually anywhere around the globe in under an hour from receiving an attack order.

In 2013, after three difficult tests, including one described awkwardly by testers as an “un-ignition event,” the X-51 achieved a test breakthrough when it traversed several thousand miles at Mach 5 speed and reached an altitude of 80,000 feet, all in the span of a 300-second flight. This was the second time it was shown that the scramjet can ignite and give positive acceleration, which according to one official is a great achievement in understanding hypersonics.

Mr. Shaffer said hypersonic weapons, when fully developed, will be less expensive than current jets and cruise missiles powered by complex turbine engines with many parts. A scramjet, or supersonic combusting ramjet, hypersonic vehicle has few moving parts. The weapons will provide “rapid, responsive strike in anti-access/access denied environments” — the Pentagon euphemism for China’s high-technology weapons designed to push U.S. forces out of Asia.

U.S. defense officials have said conventional prompt global strike technologies, once developed and deployed, could offer a partial alternative to the use of nuclear arms under certain circumstances. Some observers, though, have warned that fielding these weapons could introduce new misunderstandings into global crises, and might inadvertently increase the risk of nuclear war.

Wishing you a Joyous Passover

Tag: Israel TodaySage @ 1:27 pm

Messianic Bibles

Wishing you a Joyous Passover

A Jewish family celebrates Passover, breaking together the unleavened bread
called matzah.  The book on the table is the Haggadah (Telling); it sets the
order for recounting the story of the deliverance of the Jewish People from Egypt.

Happy Passover,

At our offices here in Israel, we watched an hour ago the blood moon which was streamed on the NASA website.

It’s no coincidence that this happened on the first day of Passover!  Something BIG is going to happen here in Israel over the next few months and we will keep you posted.

Blood Moon on April 15, 2014 - first day of Passover.

The last time this happened was in 1949 and 1967!
Each time it was after agreements were signed regarding Jerusalem! And after Israel’s two biggest wars, the first   establised the modern State of Israel and the second established Jerusalem as its capital!
Both fulfilled Bible Prophecy!

And today on the first day of Pesach (Passover) we invite you Sylvia to celebrate with us this eight-day festival with us, as we remember our Jewish family’s history and their redemption from bondage in Egypt and long for the redemption that will come through the Messiah.

“In the first month you are to eat bread made without yeast, from the evening of the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day.”  (Exodus 12:18 [show/hide]ERROR: You have exceeded your quota of 5000 requests per day.

)

Last night, millions of Jewish People all around the globe and of course in every home here in Israel, gathered together with family and friends for a special meal called a Seder to recount how God saw our affliction and took us out from Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm.

Tonight outside of Israel, many will enjoy a second Seder, retelling the story of physical redemption without understanding that Yeshua (Jesus) is the prophetic fulfillment of this wonderful holiday.

“For Messiah, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed.”  (1 Corinthians 5:7 [show/hide]ERROR: You have exceeded your quota of 5000 requests per day.

On the eve of the Israelite’s deliverance from Egypt, the blood of the lamb was placed on the doorpost so that the wrath of God would “pass over” that household.

That shed blood foreshadowed the death of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah), our Passover Lamb, whose blood was shed for sin (1 Peter 1:19 [show/hide]ERROR: You have exceeded your quota of 5000 requests per day. Please contact the developer of this application if you have questions. (If you're the developer and have questions about this error message, please contact Crossway.)

.

“Yochanan (John) saw Yeshua coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’” (John 1:29 [show/hide]ERROR: You have exceeded your quota of 5000 requests per day. Please contact the developer of this application if you have questions. (If you're the developer and have questions about this error message, please contact Crossway.)
This text is from the ESV Bible. Visit www.esv.org to learn about the ESV.
)

Today, however, the vast majority of the Jewish people do not yet recognize that Yeshua is their Passover Lamb who brought spiritual redemption.

You can make a difference during this prophetic Biblical Spring Festival by helping us share with the Jewish People the Good News of Yeshua HaMashiach.

Wishing you a blessed Passover from all our ministry staff here in Israel!

Officials warn that more Boston Marathon-type jihadis lurk

Apr 14, 2014 11:49 pm | Robert Spencer

Of course they do. Authorities are aware that they’re out there, but they’re hamstrung in their ability to track their activities by the politically correct willful ignorance about their motives and goals, imposed by the Obama Administration in October 2011 — as I explain at length in my book Arab Winter Comes to America. And […]

‘iPriest’ launches Arabic app for Catholic prayers to skirt Islamic bans

Apr 14, 2014 12:01 pm | Robert Spencer

The fact that this app is necessary at all is telling. In all too many Muslim countries, non-Muslims are subject to strict censorship. In non-Muslim countries, non-Muslims censor themselves to avoid offending the delicate sensitivities of Muslims. Where in the world can the truth about Islam and jihad be spoken freely?

Islamic supremacist groups such as the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) routinely claim victim status in the U.S., trying to curtail counter-terror efforts by charging that they victimize innocent Muslims. This, however, makes Nihad Awad and Ibrahim Hooper look like pikers. In a country in which Islamic jihadists murder Christians and others with impunity […]
