Tensions are high this week after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un announced plans to strike Guam with a missile.
While these threats may scare some people, the Christians in Guam have a different response: prayer.
“We actually spent time in prayer for the situation in North Korea and the threats that are going on,” Howard Merrell, interim president of Pacific Islands University, a Christian university in Guam, told CBN News.
While many on the island remain calm, Merrell says the people who are taking it hardest are the Koreans living there… read more
Though much of the world’s attention is understandably riveted right now on North Korea and their chilling nuclear threats against the U.S., tensions with Russia are also spiking and require urgent attention.
Consider just a few key developments that have occurred in recent weeks:
Moscow is gearing up for massive war games later this Fall that could put upwards of 100,000 Russian troops on the borders of the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Each of these countries are NATO members. Each lived for decades under the cruelty of Soviet occupation. Each are increasingly worried Putin may be interested in seizing them and putting them once again under Russian hegemony. It’s a concern I share but am concerned not enough leaders in the West do.
If such provocations weren’t enough, Vladimir Putin has just expelled 755 American diplomats from Russia, effective September 1st… read more
In light of recent threats from North Korea, how is the Christian to respond? Watch Pastor Jack’s update on North Korea and the U.S.
It was clear from the start that Barack Obama was no friend to America. There were countless ways that this ‘enemy from within‘ was determined to weaken America and make her more vulnerable than ever before in this hostile and most dangerous world.
From downsizing our Military, to firing scores of Generals who refused to be “yes” men to BHO, to dealing with the Iranian regime and signing a treaty with them which would put not only America at great risk, but Israel as well. This pleased Obama greatly. There was only one country he hated more than America, and the was Israel.
Although President Trump plans to rebuild and bolster our Military and weaponry, this is not a task which can be accomplished overnight. And it seems that America needs nothing short of a miracle at the present time. We have never been this close to an all out Nuclear war since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962…. read more
For nearly three decades, one Christian human rights group has carried out an unusual aerial offensive to encourage North Korea’s secret believers.
Every week, hundreds of bright orange balloons, with all 16 chapters of the book of Mark inscribed on it, float into North Korean airspace.
“One slight change in the wind direction could mess up the mission,” said Peter, the lead organizer of the balloon operation.
Peter started the project with the aim of getting the Word of God into North Korea. He dubbed the mission Operation Dandelion…. read more
In the last few days, the United States and North Korea have engaged in a battle of blazing rhetoric. It’s been a cold war of hot words.
After the UN Security Council passed a sanctions resolution against North Korea last week, the rogue state promised a “thousands-fold” revenge against the United States. They threatened to “turn the U.S. mainland into the theater of a nuclear war.”
President Trump said, “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
Acting as an accelerant on the blazing rhetoric was news that North Korea has now passed another milestone in its quest to make the U.S. mainland vulnerable to its nuclear weapons. On Tuesday, major media outlets, starting with the Washington Post, began saying that the Defense Intelligence Agency now believes North Korea has the ability to miniaturize nuclear weapons for use on ICBMs…. read more

But while all eyes were fixed on the burly dictator in Pyongyang, hardly anyone noticed that North Korea and Iran this week signed a series of new military accords which are no less dangerous to world peace.
Parliament Speaker Kim Yong Nam, who is rated No. 2 in the Kim regime, ended a 10-day visit to Tehran on Monday, Aug. 7 by inking the new agreements. His official errand in Tehran was to represent Pyongyang at the swearing-in ceremony of President Hassan Rouhani and inaugurate the new North Korean embassy building in the Iranian capital. But he came with a large delegation of North Korean military officers who spent hours in conference with the heads of Iran’s nuclear and missile programs, as well as the leaders of the powerful Revolutionary Guards.
The precise details of Pyongyang’s continued contribution to the upgrade of Iran’s technology in those areas under close wraps. But for Kim, the important thing is Iran’s multibillion dollar investment in the partnership in return in return for allowing Iranian engineers and scientists to work alongside North Korean experts in the two fields.
The irony is that, while the Security Council unanimouslyy approved tough economic sanctions estimated to cost North Korea an estimated $1bn in state revenue – for which President Trump praised the world powers – Kim has managed to lay his hands on enough cash from Tehran to keep his nuclear and missile programs moving apace. Some of that cash comes from the sanction relief the Americans and Europeans granted Iran for signing its 2015 nuclear deal.
