Firefighters battle wildfires in Washington

Hundreds of firefighters in Washington state are battling several fast-spreading wildfires, most of which appear to have been sparked by lightning.

Fed by 15 mph winds and temperatures in the 90s, the blaze had burned about 16,000 acres by Wednesday night and had consumed at least 14 structures since Monday, officials said.

God is moving by His Spirit in powerful, miraculous ways

Below are some of the amazing things God has been doing in Saudi Arabia, where we recently heard what the enemy has been doing. It is an excerpt of a report provided by Steve Snyder from "Religion Today" ( http://www.ReligionToday.com/CurrentNewsSummary/).

"Healings and visions are bringing people to Christ, Synder said. Muslims are having dreams in which Jesus appears and proclaims to be the Savior. Christians are at first wary when asked to explain the visions, but the Muslims are persistent and hundreds have come to believe in Jesus through them.

"Doctors and nurses in a local hospital were amazed when a man who was paralyzed on one side of his body got up and walked around his room after two Christians prayed for him. 'Jesus healed me,' he kept proclaiming. Hospital staff and administrators kept coming to his room for days to examine him and marvel at his recovery. Many of them became Christians, Snyder said.

"Some members of the Saudi royal family have been affected by the revival. A prince reportedly put his faith in Jesus after his Christian baker prayed for his mother to be healed of diabetes. The baker had been jailed because he claimed that Jesus had healed him of an ailment. The prince got him out of jail and questioned him. 'If Jesus healed you, could he heal my mother of diabetes?' he reportedly asked the baker. She was healed within 24 hours of the prayer, Snyder said. But the man still had to stand trial for his Christian beliefs. When he came before the judge, the baker refused to recant his testimony and the judge decided to give him a test. He brought in five people with diabetes and said that if his prayer healed them he would let the baker go, but if they were not healed, he would be beheaded. After the prayer, the people were all tested at a local hospital and no traces of diabetes were found. 'That started a big revival and some in the Royal Family became Christians,' Snyder said."

[Note: I have other reliable reports of Jesus appearing to Muslims in dreams and visions. It happened to the mother of an Iranian girl missionary girl I know who was recently in the U.S. The mother got saved. God is moving by His Spirit and confirming His Word with signs following, just like the Bible says! As previously reported, in one "JESUS" film story from India confirmed by director Paul Eshleman, a village girl was even raised from the dead, causing her whole tribe to come to Christ! The time truly must be short.]

That is why, little children, in the silence of the heart, remain with Jesus, so that He may change and transform you with His love. This, little children, is a time of grace for you. Make good use of it for your personal conversion, because when you have God, you have everything.

Scientists Clone Adult Lab Mice Process May Hurry Human Application

Indeed, one of the key findings of the new work is that a biological roadblock scientists thought might interfere with their ability to clone mice and people is not insurmountable in mice after all, suggesting that human cloning is also achievable with relative ease.

"I'm absolutely convinced it will happen," said Lee Silver, a professor of genetics at Princeton University, "and I think it will happen sooner than we thought a year ago."

Silver said he would not be surprised if a person were created by a cloning technique within five years.

While the Hawaii researchers refused to talk about potential human applications, saying they are only interested in mice, others said the implications of that discovery were clear. "If you can clone from adult mouse cells," said Silver of Princeton, "there's basically no reason you can't do this in humans."

Witnessing the Prophecies of Joel

I have been a part of a "praise & worship prayer group" now for a while. In this group, I have seen people including priests speak (sing) in tongues, prophets and visionaries, and witnessed an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, including "annointings" of the Spirit.

I write this to state that this is the "wonderful side" of the prophecies of the "end times". It is the presence of God intervening in our world, in a manner not witnessed to such an extent since the very beginnings of the Christian Church. It is truly a fulfilment of the prophecies of Joel that in the last days people would dream dreams, have visions, etc. This occurance also demonstrates the great love that Our Creator has for His Children.

One message that keeps coming forward is that the Father is still the Eternal Father of love and mercy, but that time is short, and that He will become "soon" a God of justice.

The most important messages continue to be "love God, love your neighbor, love yourself, reconciliation, and trust in God and His plan".

Modern tower of Babel

The other day someone made the fascinating suggestion that the Y2K problem might be compared to Babel, when God confused the communications of the world. Today, like then, the whole world speaks a common (cyber-) language, and world systems everywhere and every phase of society are dependent on this language.

That cause me to review the passage in Genesis 11 in such a light and with some modern word insertions:

"Now the whole world had one (computer) language and a common (computer) speech....But the LORD came down to see the city (world system) and the tower (one-world religion) that the men were building. The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same (computer) language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them" (Genesis 11:1,5, NIV).

Israeli Intelligence warns of war prospects

In Yediot Achronot's magazine "Moussaf" section, July 10, Tamuz 16 edition an exclusive report quoting Israeli Intelligence sources spells out the conclusion that a potential for war between Israel and her Arab neighbors is rapidly increasing. The article blames the deadlock in Arab-Israeli "peace" talks for the growing prospects of war. And warns that failed "peace" talks can lead to a full blown war between Israel and the Arabs.

Intelligence sources claim that the PA is training a special Arab commando unit to liquidate the Jewish "settlements," at the right time and that the Syrians have finally got their hands on advanced long range missiles against tanks that are extremely accurate. The Syrians also have developed advanced capabilities to dig in and avoid being detected by the Israelis. The Egyptians are completing their transformation into a full-fledged Westernized army with a superior navy to that of the out-dated Israeli navy. Egypt now has F-16 fighters and is plotting future F-15 aquisitions.

Scientists find genetic evidence of Jewish priesthood designation

Scientists have found fresh genetic evidence that Jews who consider themselves part of the priestly class known as Cohanim really are part of an unbroken line extending back thousands of years.

In a new study reported in the journal Nature, most Cohanim had the same version of the Y chromosome or close variants that differ because of random mutations. By studying how long it would take for the variants to develop, researchers concluded the inheritance of Cohanim status has gone on longer than 700 years and maybe as long as 3,000 years or so, as tradition maintains.
