Germany establishes new military command

GERMANY - Germany on Monday set up a new military command to boost the country’s defense capabilities and facilitate the domestic deployment of troops in crisis situations. The Bundeswehr’s Territorial Operations Command was activated with a ceremony at the Julius Leber Barracks in Berlin, which was attended by Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht and the top military commanders. Speaking at the ceremony, Lambrecht said the inauguration of the new command shows that Germany is taking rapid, concrete and effective steps to address new challenges following Russia’s war on Ukraine. “We are strengthening our readiness and our ability to act on the territory that we will defend in the event of an attack,” she said, adding that the new command will also bear responsibility as part of homeland security, hybrid threat situations, disaster relief, and matters of civil-military cooperation.

 
Seoul reluctant to get dragged into Taiwan conflict

SOUTH KOREA - South Korea’s president has expressed reluctance about helping the US defend Taiwan against a potential Chinese attack. Yoon Suk-yeo believes his country’s military – and American troops stationed on the peninsula – instead need to focus on the increased risk of a conflict with North Korea in such a scenario. “In the case of military conflict around Taiwan, there would be increased possibility of North Korean provocation,” President Yoon Suk-yeol outlined in a CNN interview that aired on Sunday. “Therefore, in that case, the top priority for Korea and the US-Korean alliance on the Korean Peninsula would be based on our robust defense posture. We must deal with the North Korean threat first.” The President stopped short of saying that Seoul should be a higher US priority than Taipei, but he suggested that the approximately 28,500 American troops in South Korea shouldn’t be diverted to fight in Taiwan. US President Joe Biden last week said that American forces would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion, eliciting a furious response from Beijing.

 
Nord Stream explosions ‘were deliberate acts caused by sabotage’

DENMARK - Danish prime minister Mette Frederiksen said sabotage could not be ruled out as the cause of the ‘unprecedented’ damage to the Nord Stream 1 and 2. The leader said: ‘It is authorities’ clear assessment that these are deliberate actions – not accidents.’ But she stressed that ‘there is no information indicating who could be behind’ it. Ms Frederiksen also rejected the suggestion that the incident was an attack on Denmark, saying the leaks occurred in international waters. In Sweden, acting prime minister Magdalena Andersson also said ‘it is probably a case of sabotage,’ but not an attack on her country. Meanwhile, Sweden’s National Seismology Centre (SNSN) confirmed an explosion recorded at the same time the gas pipeline was damaged measured at 2.3 on the Richter scale.

 
How a party of neo-fascist roots won big in Italy

ITALY - The Brothers of Italy party, which won the most votes in Italy’s national election, has its roots in the post-World War II neo-fascist Italian Social Movement. Keeping the movement’s most potent symbol, the tricolor flame, Giorgia Meloni has taken Brothers of Italy from a fringe far-right group to Italy’s biggest party. A century after Benito Mussolini’s 1922 March on Rome, which brought the fascist dictator to power, Meloni is poised to lead Italy’s first far-right-led government since World War II and is Italy’s first woman premier. Meloni still speaks reverently about the MSI and Almirante, even if her rhetoric can change to suit her audience. This summer, speaking in perfect Spanish, she thundered at a rally of Spain’s hard-right Vox party: “Yes to the natural family. No to the LGBT lobby. Yes to sexual identity. No to gender ideology.” Back home on the campaign trail, she projected a much more moderate tone and appealed for unity in her victory speech Monday. “Italy chose us,” she said. “We will not betray it, as we never have.”

 
Jewish Leaders Prepare For A New Shemitah Cycle To Begin?

ISRAEL - Is it just a coincidence that 5 red heifers have arrived in Israel as Jewish leaders prepare for a new Shemitah Cycle to begin? A major prophetic event just happened, and hardly anyone in the United States is talking about it. In recent years a group of western Christians known as Boneh Israel has been working with officials from the Temple Institute to search for a perfect red heifer. A red heifer is necessary if Temple sacrifices are to be reinstituted, but one hasn’t been seen in Israel for more than 2,000 years. This is something that I have written about a few times over the years, because it directly relates to end times prophecies. For a long time, the search for a perfect red heifer seemed to be going nowhere, but now all of that has changed. On September 15th, five perfect red heifers from the United States landed at Ben Gurion Airport.

Electric cars making America’s power grids unstable

USA - Leaving your electric car charging overnight to have it ready in the morning seems like a good idea in theory. But in reality, research suggests doing so does more harm in the long run. Stanford scientists say that it’s more costly to charge your electric car at night and it could stress out your local electric grid. Instead, researchers suggest drivers should switch to charging their vehicle at work or in public charging stations. Another added benefit to charging in the daytime at a public station is that it reduces greenhouse gas emissions. With the effects of climate change more apparent than ever — frequent forest fires, widespread flooding, and stronger hurricanes — car companies are expecting people to start investing in electric-powered cars in the future. For example, California residents are expected to buy more electric cars as the state is planning to ban sales of gasoline-powered cars and light trucks in 2035.

 
Executive Order Advances Biotech-Transhumanist Agenda

USA - September 12, 2022, President Biden signed the “Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe and Secure American Bioeconomy.” Specified in that order is the development of genetic engineering technologies and techniques “to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers,” as well as genetic technologies to “unlock the power of biological data” using “computing tools and artificial intelligence.”

EU leaders have forgotten about something kind of important

EUROPE - Brussels overlords and assorted EU leaders, taking turns at the UN General Assembly podium beating the Western war-drums against Russia — all in the interest of “peace,” neglect to ascertain what the average European actually wants. Contrary to their leaders’ desires, the average European is only willing to personally give up so much “for Ukraine” — whatever that means, since it’s pretty obvious that the people of Ukraine aren’t benefiting from the current state of perpetual conflict the EU and the US are enabling, either. It’s one thing for the average EU citizen to get behind lofty values, voiced from high above the daily struggles if it doesn’t cost them anything. Or at least if the waters are sufficiently muddied that citizens can’t easily connect the dots from their wallet to their leaders’ relentless spending. Selling this seemingly endless conflict in Ukraine, a notoriously corrupt country, as a defense of “democracy,” only works until it means choosing between paying your own bills and paying for all the blank cheques that you’re writing to Kyiv.

 
EU central bank warns ‘outlook is darkening’

EUROPE - Europe is facing lower-than-expected economic growth as inflation continues to climb, European Central Bank chief Christine Lagarde revealed on Monday, explaining that the ECB had raised interest rates by 75 basis points in an attempt to control soaring prices. Speaking before the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs on Monday, Lagarde admitted that “inflation remains far too high and is likely to stay above our target for an extended period.” The former IMF boss warned that the “economic consequences for the euro area” of “Russia’s unjustified war of aggression on Ukraine” had spiraled further since June, a reference to Western sanctions on Russian oil and gas, which have sent fuel prices skyrocketing. “The outlook is darkening,” she said.

 
Record-setting storm Fiona batters eastern Canada

CANADA - A powerful storm has left a trail of devastation through Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Quebec after making landfall in Canada early on Saturday as a post-tropical cyclone. With hurricane-strength winds, torrential rains and towering waves, Fiona destroyed buildings and swept at least 12 entire structures into the ocean, according to a resident of Port Aux Basques who spoke to the Associated Press. Some 415,000 Nova Scotia residents – about four in five – experienced power outages, while 82,000 inhabitants of Prince Edward Island (95% of the island’s residents) were also left in the dark, and 44,329 lost electricity in New Brunswick. Of those, 380,000 remained without power as of Saturday afternoon, according to the CEO of Nova Scotia Power, who blamed the “unprecedented” winds and dangerous weather for the delay in repairs.

 
Will Europe Break with the United States?

EUROPE - I received a great question from a German reader who also happens to be a journalist. He asked, “What would be a way and what would be the practical implications if Europe in general and Germany in particular were to break with the US in order to find a European peace and economic framework including Russia?” The craven sycophancy demonstrated by Germany, France and the United Kingdom in their passionate embrace of America’s confrontation with Russia is now on life support.

Germany outlines UN Security Council ambition

GERMANY - The UN’s most powerful body must “fit in with the reality of the 21st century,” the German chancellor says. Germany deserves a permanent seat on the UN Security Council as it adheres to the principles of the United Nations and is “offering and seeking cooperation,” Chancellor Olaf Scholz said in his speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday. “I urge you to support our candidacy,” Scholz stated in his address. According to the chancellor, the UN’s prime conflict-resolution body needs Germany in order to be able to meet the challenges of modern times. “We have to make our rules and institutions fit in with the reality of the 21st century. Far too often, they reflect the world as it was 30, 50 or 70 years ago. That also applies to the Security Council of the United Nations (UNSC),” he said. Set up in 1945 after the victory over Nazi Germany, the UNSC has five permanent members – the UK, China, France, Russia and the US. Those nations have the power to veto any resolution of the council.

 
They Have Been Destroying Our Culture For Decades

USA - Our culture has been completely and utterly turned upside down. If Americans from 1776 could visit us today, they would be absolutely horrified. Everything that they considered to be good is now considered to be evil, and everything that they considered to be evil is now considered to be good. We may pay lip service to the Constitution that they gave us, but the truth is that we have completely rejected all of the values that were the bedrock of their society. As a result, our culture is rapidly degenerating and we can see evidence of this all around us.

Moving UK embassy to Jerusalem

UK - Liz Truss has confirmed to Israel’s Prime Minister, Yair Lapid, that she is considering moving Britain’s embassy to Jerusalem. The news has been confirmed by Downing Street which said that the PM reaffirmed to Lapid her leadership campaign pledge “about her review of the current location of the British embassy in Israel.” Lapid also tweeted praise to Truss for considering the move adding “We will continue to strengthen the partnership between the countries.” Announcing the new UK Pledge for Jerusalem, which CUFI is asking supporters to sign, CUFI UK Executive Director, Des Starritt, said, “Next year marks 75 years since the re-establishment of the State of Israel. What better way to mark this important milestone, than the United Kingdom reversing decades of misguided foreign policy by moving the UK embassy to Jerusalem.” Prime Minister Lapid congratulated Prime Minister Truss on taking office, and expressed confidence that under her leadership, ties between Israel and the United Kingdom will reach new heights in various fields, in particular the economy, innovation and security.

 
Iran unveils missile it says can strike all of Middle East

IRAN - Iran reportedly has around 20 types of ballistic missiles, some of which are copies of missiles developed in North Korea, or have origins in Russian and Chinese missiles. Iran held a military parade on Thursday and unveiled what it claimed to be a new ballistic missile. The missile is a medium-range ballistic rocket capable of traveling around 1,400km, according to Iranian media. Called “Rezvan”, the missile was shown during a parade that marks Iran’s victory over Iraq in the 1980-1988 war. With a range of 1400km, the missile would be capable of striking anywhere in the Middle East as well as in parts of Europe.

 
“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
