THE RACE IS ON FOR THE US SENATE

Alabama’s leading Political Columnist Steve Flowers

We are less than three months away from the election for our number two U.S. Senate Seat. The winner of the Republican Primary on March 3, 2020 will be our next U.S. Senator. Winning the GOP Primary for any statewide office in a presidential year is tantamount to election in the Heart of Dixie.

Jeff Sessions is the prohibitive favorite to win back the seat he held for 20 years. He probably regretted from day one leaving a safe U.S. Senate Seat with 20 years of seniority and four-years left on his term, to take a temporary Attorney General appointment for at best a four- year tenure. It amazed me when he did it. Sessions and Trump were at odds from the beginning over Sessions’ recusal from the Russian collusion probe by the Democrats. Trumps’ disenchantment with Sessions was quite obvious and outspoken.

There is a teacher shortage crisis in Alabama

US Senator Doug Jones

By Senator Doug Jones

During the 2017 school year, more than 1,700 Alabama teachers in grades 7-12 were not certified to teach the English, math, social studies, science, or special education classes they were assigned to teach. In fact, in 70 schools in Alabama, 10 percent or more of the teachers are working without full certification. These teacher shortages have been shown to be even worse in rural parts of Alabama, where there are the largest percentages of teachers using emergency or provisional certificates.

And the problem is getting worse. From 2009 to 2015, the number of education majors enrolled in Alabama’s public universities dropped by 19 percent.

Religion is manmade with the devil’s help

We have covered sixteen out of twenty-two chapters in Revelation, but some of the most interesting and controversial material lies in the last six chapters of the book. You will soon read exactly what I mean. Revelation 17:1-18 describes the universal religious system of this evil age. The angel described and defined to John Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots. The word mystery has to refer to a religious (mysterious) system. That is what religion is. And let me say here that Christianity is not a religion. Religion is manmade (with the devil’s help, of course). Real Bible Christianity is a living organismnot an organization. It is the Living Body of Christ, made up of Jesus Christ and genuine born-again believers. However, many have turned real Christianity into fake churchianity.

JOHN SAW WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE SPIRIT REALM

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

The dry river bed will pave the way for those kings and their armies, but the kings who cross it will have to be persuaded to follow the Antichrist to that final battle. Now, remember, John saw what will happen in the spirit realm, before it manifests on the earth. Daniel 10:12-14 and 20 inform us that what happens in the spirit realm affects what happens on the planet. The answer to Daniel’s prayer was on its way from heaven, but heaven’s courier, the good angel Gabriel, was hindered by one of the fallen angels, identified as the angelic Prince of Persia. Daniel’s prayer-answer being released on the first day he prayed, because of that angelic hinderance it took 21 days to arrive. That proves that we have to exercise some patience, and hold onto our faith, when the answers to our prayers do not materialize immediately. I am glad Daniel held on!     What did John see in the spirit realm? Three demonic spirits that looked like frogs coming out of the mouths of the dragon (the devil), the beast (Antichrist), and the false prophet. The devil and those two men will command demonic spirits to go persuade all the kings around the globe to gather together to battle at Jerusalem. They will perform persuasive false miracles to convince those kings to believe in and follow the Antichrist into the battle. Second Thessalonians 2:9, referring to that Tribulation Time, says that by Satan’s power the Antichrist will perform lying wonders to deceive the whole world.     John saw the impact that demonic activity will have upon earth. The Antichrist and his armies will put themselves in battle array just outside Jerusalem, planning to wipe out the Jews once and for all. You can read about all that in Revelation 16:12-16.        That seventh and last bowl judgment is revealed in Revelation 16:17, and following. It will be the most destructive of all the plages:

GOD’S WRATH WILL BE POURED OUT IN DIFFERENT WAYS


     The third of the last seven judgment bowls full of God’s wrath will be poured out on rivers and springs, turning them into blood, just as that second bowl was emptied into the oceans, turning them into blood. But this time the angel communicated the reason for the blood-plagues. Ever since the fall of man, evil people have shed the blood of the saints and prophets of God, so God will be just in giving the last evil generation of men blood to drink.
