Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:
When I first became burdened to push back against gay activism in 2004, I immediately began to read the stories of gay activists, gay pastors and others. That's because I wanted to have a heart for the people as opposed to simply standing up to the activism. And the more I read the stories of the people involved and the more I sat and talked with them face to face, the more my heart broke.
You see, it's one thing to look at the ugly and perverse extremes often put on exhibit at major gay pride parades (especially in years past). Or to confront a propagandistic and dangerous curriculum in your child's elementary school.
It's another thing to sit and talk with people who tell you that they always felt different, even at the age of 5. That, when they entered puberty, they prayed and prayed for their gay feelings to go away, but they didn't. That they tried exorcism and shock treatment to get rid of their homosexuality and that, when nothing worked, they contemplated suicide.
If you study Bible prophecy at all, you also study the Middle East. In the last several years, as events unfold including the moving of the U.S. and three other country's embassies to Jerusalem, continuing conflict over the Gaza strip and the escalation of terrorist attacks from Hamas, more people are wondering: Are we in the last days?
End-times expert Michael Snyder says that may well be the case. "We've been anticipating that kind of large-scale conflict in the Middle East," he tells Dr. Steve Greene on a popular episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast network. "Many of us believe the Bible speaks of certain things in the last days. And so a lot of people have been watching for this. But what most people don't realize is that the fighting is actually already going on."
In this 2019 podcast, Snyder speaks of the airstrikes or drone strikes Israel conducted in Syria, Gaza, Lebanon and Iraq, designed to prevent attacks against Israel. But today's conflicts are escalating as well, with recent news of Israel's rocket war with Hamas along the Gaza border and recent U.S. attacks on Iran-backed militia facilities in Iraq and Syria.
This week, the U.S. House held a hearing with one-day notice on the "John Lewis Voting Rights Act," or JL Act. The Democrats' star witness pushing "preclearance" was the American Civil Liberties Union.
We have warned about the JL Act and preclearance. It gives Joe Biden's Department of Justice unprecedented power to impose worse election fraud than H.R. 1 (S 1/ S 2093). And this power will include a veto over many state laws—including laws restricting abortion or even annexation.
Right now, both Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, have publicly stated that they support this next proposed version. In addition, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, refuses to say if she supports it or not.
