Ashamed Of The Name – Campus Crusade For Christ Changes Name, Drops ‘Christ’

The 60-year-old evangelical ministry announced its new name at a staff conference in Fort Collins, Colo., on Tuesday (July 19), saying the old name had become problematic.

Ashamed of The Name of Jesus

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first…” 2 Thessalonians 2:3

(NOTE: The day this story was published, we posted it to their Facebook page as a witness. They then banned and deleted NTEB and everyone else who did not like the new name of Cru, and are only allowing comments that line up with the new name. That way they can falsely make it look like everyone agrees with their position.)

It has been well said that it is not how strong you run when you start, it’s how finish. Billy Graham started like a house on fire when he hit the scene in 1947, yet by 1978 he was doubting the existience of Hell and thinking that lost people who don’t know Jesus could still go to Heaven. Now we have the latest victim in the great coming apostasty, Bill Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ. Only that’s not their name anymore.

So what did they change it to?

They now wish to be known as Cru. Really? When they called themselves Campus Crusade For Christ, you knew exactly what their mission was, where it’s focus was, and in Whose Name they operated. Now with ‘Cru’, a meaningless, nonsensical babble of a name, it could be anything. And maybe in our age of the Laodicean church, that’s the point.

When you read the story below, you will see that they go through a huge song and dance of how its really the word “crusade” they wanted to get rid of . Really? If thats true, why did the name of Christ get tossed in the garbage, too?  Ho, ho, ho…go kid your grandma.

“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:38

The 60-year-old evangelical ministry announced its new name at a staff conference in Fort Collins, Colo., on Tuesday (July 19), saying the old name had become problematic.

“We’ve been having issues with two words in the name — campus and crusade,” said Steve Sellers, a vice president who oversees the ministry’s U.S. operations, in an interview.

Though the Orlando, Fla.-based organization began on campuses in 1951, it has expanded to more than two dozen ministries focused on topics such as families, athletes, the military and inner cities.

When Campus Crusade was founded by the late Bill Bright and his wife Vonette, the word “crusade” typically referred to the large, stadium events held by evangelists like Billy Graham.

“In today’s culture it carries more weight in terms of its historic meaning,” Sellers said, with people thinking “more to the days of the Crusaders and dealing with the Middle East as opposed to a positive use of the word.”

Cru isn’t the only religious organization that has moved away from “crusade.” Wheaton College, Graham’s alma mater in Illinois, changed its mascot from Crusaders to Thunder in 2000. Graham’s son Franklin leads “festivals” instead of crusades, and his grandson Will holds “celebrations.”

Most recently, Crusader Lutheran Church in Rockville, Md., changed its name to Living Faith Lutheran Church out of concern that the old name had “militaristic” and “non-Christian” overtones. Sellers said the Crusade-to-Cru change is part of that trend. “We don’t want the words that we use to get in the way of the message that we have,” he said.

Hmmm, they don’t want the “words that we use to get in the way of the message that we have”, eh? Well, now that you have dropped the Name of Jesus, you no longer have a message, a ministry, or a reason for being.

Another one bites the dust….

The Chinese Military Deploys Forces To Surround The Island Of Taiwan For What Looks Like A ‘Dress Rehearsal’ For Upcoming Actual Invasion

On Monday, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) announced its Eastern Theater Command organized maritime, aerial, conventional missile and other forces around Taiwan and carried out drills around the island from Friday to Sunday.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The military in China deployed forces all around the island of Taiwan over the weekend in a set of large-scale military drills that one Chinese military analyst called a ‘dress rehearsal’ of possible real action.

While here in America, as the folks in Washington DC are bracing themselves for the upcoming ‘Red Wave’ of the Midterms elections, an actual Red wave has surrounded the island of Taiwan in what analysts are calling a ‘dress rehearsal’ for China to launch an actual invasion. If China is ever going to do it, doing it while pretend president Joe Biden is in office is the key to successfully attacking Taiwan. Why do you think Russia waited until Biden was in to attack Ukraine? Remember Afghanistan? But I digress.

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” Revelation 16:12 (KJB)

We stopped counting at day 777, but if we were still counting, today is Day 786 of 15 Days to Flatten the Curve, and end times events are proceeding apace exactly as they should be. China invading Taiwan is not a matter of ‘if’, only a matter a ‘when’, and as the long, hot and upcoming ‘Summer of Blood’ begins to assemble itself to distract Americans here at home, Russia and gas prices are doing a great job of providing distraction on a global scale. Speaking of Ukraine, when’s the last time you heard of a ‘war zone’ hosting s rock concert? It’s all theater, kiddies, but with a deadly finale.

China surrounds Taiwan for massive invasion ‘rehearsal’ drills

FROM AMERICAN MILOTARY NEWS: On Monday, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) announced its Eastern Theater Command organized maritime, aerial, conventional missile and other forces around Taiwan and carried out drills around the island from Friday to Sunday. The Eastern Theater Command said the drills were intended “to test and improve the joint operations capability of multiple services and arms.”

While Taiwan governs itself as an independent nation, China considers the island a part of its territory and Chinese officials have repeatedly discussed “reunification” with the island, including by means of military force.

“In preparation of and a possible real action of military conflict in the Taiwan Straits, all PLA forces will play their roles, as they will surround the entire island, seal it off and launch effective strikes,” Song said according to Global Times.

The Chinese state-run Global Times publication reported maritime, aerial, conventional missile and “other forces” participated in the drills around Taiwan. During the drills, China’s Liaoning aircraft carrier deployed east of the island while a large number of Chinese aircraft and warships carried out drills to the island’s west.

The Ministry of National Defence for the Republic of China (the formal name of the Taiwanese government) documented several instances of Chinese military aircraft entering its air defense identification zone (ADIZ) over the course of the three-day exercise. 12 Chinese fighter jets, two bombers and four other Chinese aircraft entered Taiwan’s ADIZ on Friday. Two bombers and three other aircraft entered Taiwan’s ADIZ on Saturday. Two more aircraft entered the ADIZ on Sunday. China flies military aircraft into Taiwan’s ADIZ on a near-daily basis.

Song Zhongping, a Chinese mainland military analyst told the Chinese state publication that the PLA’s drills were “like a rehearsal of  possible real action.” Song noted the participation of air and naval forces, but noted the seeming lack of amphibious landings and actions by ground forces during the drills.

China Surrounds Taiwan With Warships and Airplanes In Stunning Aggression

The PLA has carried out another round of drills near Taiwan. Chinese warships and planes surrounded the island. They conducted a partial rehearsal of “a possible reunification-by-force operation”. Is China preparing to invade Taiwan?

Anthony Fauci And The Centers for Disease Control Prevention Spent The Plannedemic Harvesting Data From Tens Of Millions Of Mobile Devices

The COVID-19 pandemic as a whole has been a flashpoint in a broader culture war, with conservatives and anti-vaccine groups protesting government mask and vaccine mandates. They’ve also expressed a specific paranoia that vaccine passports would be used as a tracking or surveillance tool, framing vaccine refusal as a civil liberties issue. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Children’s Health Defense, one of the more influential and monied anti-vaccine groups in the U.S., has promoted fears that digital vaccine certificates could be used to surveil citizens.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Anthony Fauci and the CDC seems to have purposefully targeted curfews, neighbor-to-neighbor visits, visits to churches, schools and pharmacies, and go so far as to monitor and record ‘places of worship’ during the Plannedemic.

The truth about conspiracy theory is that the actual truth of the given event in question – who shot John Kennedy, gain of function, what are they spraying in the sky, how did the Twin Towers come down –  is usually way more intense and complex than the conspiracy theory that references it. Take Anthony Fauci and the CDC, while they were “tracking the virus”, what they were actually doing is tracking everyone with a mobile device and creating evergreen data farms from what they harvested.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32 (KJB)

Just when you think you’ve gone too far, as it turns out, you didn’t go far enough, and this is absolutely the case with Anthony Fauci and his gain of function CDC. Evil to the core, and rotten to the depths of his black heart, the same man who forced doctors in the 1980’s to give AIDS patients the ‘death drug’ AZT has only gotten worse here in 2022. They called it the Plannedemic for a reason, and as you will see in this article and in dozens more to follow, what they were really doing during over 777 days of 15 days to flatten the curve was install a full-time surveillance society. This thing is not coming to an end, it is only just beginning, and you can quote me on that.

CDC Tracked Millions of Phones to See If Americans Followed COVID Lockdown Orders

FROM MOTHERBOARD: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) bought access to location data harvested from tens of millions of phones in the United States to perform analysis of compliance with curfews, track patterns of people visiting K-12 schools, and specifically monitor the effectiveness of policy in the Navajo Nation, according to CDC documents obtained by Motherboard. The documents also show that although the CDC used COVID-19 as a reason to buy access to the data more quickly, it intended to use it for more-general CDC purposes.

Location data is information on a device’s location sourced from the phone, which can then show where a person lives, works, and where they went. The sort of data the CDC bought was aggregated—meaning it was designed to follow trends that emerge from the movements of groups of people—but researchers have repeatedly raised concerns with how location data can be deanonymized and used to track specific people.

“CDC also plans to use mobility data and services acquired through this acquisition to support non-COVID-19 programmatic areas and public health priorities across the agency, including but not limited to travel to parks and green spaces, physical activity and mode of travel, and population migration before, during, and after natural disasters,” it reads. “The mobility data obtained under this contract will be available for CDC agency-wide use and will support numerous CDC priorities.”

The documents reveal the expansive plan the CDC had last year to use location data from a highly controversial data broker. SafeGraph, the company the CDC paid $420,000 for access to one year of data, includes Peter Thiel and the former head of Saudi intelligence among its investors. Google banned the company from the Play Store in June.

The CDC used the data for monitoring curfews, with the documents saying that SafeGraph’s data “has been critical for ongoing response efforts, such as hourly monitoring of activity in curfew zones or detailed counts of visits to participating pharmacies for vaccine monitoring.” The documents date from 2021.

Zach Edwards, a cybersecurity researcher who closely follows the data marketplace, told Motherboard in an online chat after reviewing the documents: “The CDC seems to have purposefully created an open-ended list of use cases, which included monitoring curfews, neighbor-to-neighbor visits, visits to churches, schools and pharmacies, and also a variety of analysis with this data specifically focused on ‘violence.’” (The document doesn’t stop at churches; it mentions “places of worship.”) Motherboard obtained the documents through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the CDC.

The documents contain a long list of what the CDC describes as 21 different “potential CDC use cases for data.” They include: 

  • “Track patterns of those visiting K-12 schools by the school and compare to 2019; compare with epi metrics [Environmental Performance Index] if possible.”
  • “Examination of the correlation of mobility patterns data and rise in COVID-19 cases […] Movement restrictions (Border closures, inter-regional and nigh curfews) to show compliance.”
  • “Examination of the effectiveness of public policy on [the] Navajo Nation.”

At the start of the pandemic, cellphone location data was seen as a potentially useful tool. Multiple media organizations, including the New York Times, used location data provided by companies in the industry to show where people were traveling to once lockdowns started to lift, or highlight that poorer communities were unable to shelter in place as much as richer ones.

The COVID-19 pandemic as a whole has been a flashpoint in a broader culture war, with conservatives and anti-vaccine groups protesting government mask and vaccine mandates. They’ve also expressed a specific paranoia that vaccine passports would be used as a tracking or surveillance tool, framing vaccine refusal as a civil liberties issue. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Children’s Health Defense, one of the more influential and monied anti-vaccine groups in the U.S., has promoted fears that digital vaccine certificates could be used to surveil citizens. QAnon promoter Dustin Nemos wrote on Telegram in December that vaccine passports are “a Trojan horse being used to create a completely new type of controlled and surveilled society in which the freedom we enjoy today will be a distant memory.”

Against that inflamed backdrop, the use of cellphone location data for such a wide variety of tracking measures, even if effective for becoming better informed on the pandemic’s spread or for informing policy, is likely to be controversial. It’s also likely to give anti-vaccine groups a real-world data point on which to pin their darkest warnings. READ MORE

Shocking New Poll Reveals Nearly Half Of All Israelis Fear A Second Holocaust Is Coming, And They’re Exactly Right But Don’t Know Why They’re Right

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Despite the phrase ‘never again’ long linked to Holocaust commemoration, almost half (47%) of the Israeli public are concerned that another Holocaust will strike the Jewish people, according to a new survey.

Antisemitism has risen dramatically on a global scale since the pandemic began, so Jews ad Israelis should be concerned about the possibility of a second Holocaust from a practical perspective. But from a biblical perspective, a second Holocaust is absolutely coming, and it will be many times worse than the previous one. In fact, Jesus says it will be the greatest Tribulation in human history, dwarfing what was accomplished by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.

“But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Matthews 24:20-22 (KJB)

This time of unprecedented tribulation and preauction of the Jews will take place exactly three and one half years into what the prophet Jeremiah calls the ‘time of Jacob’s trouble’ that begins in the days after the born again Church is removed in the Rapture. The whole world, laboring under the weight of the ‘strong delusion’ sent by God to all those who rejected the gospel of the kingdom of God, will turn to follow Antichrist, Jew and Gentile alike, and believe that a time of ‘peace and safety; has finally arrived, The Abraham Accords that we have right now are actually the ‘bait’ that will bring this all about. The Jews may say ‘never again’, but their own scriptures say different.

Nearly half of Israelis fear a second Holocaust is coming – poll

FROM JERUSALEM POST: The poll was conducted just days ahead of Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, which starts Wednesday evening, April 27, by the Pnima movement and first published in the Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom.

The survey found that women expressed more anxiety about another Holocaust compared to men (55% versus 42%) and that younger Israelis are especially fearful – 24% of Israelis under the age of 24 said that they were very worried about a second Holocaust, in contrast to just 12% of Israelis over the age of 45.

Notably, religiously observant Israelis are more worried about an ensuing Holocaust. Israelis who define themselves as haredim (ultra-Orthodox) responded that they were very concerned about the likelihood, as opposed to just 11% of Israelis who identify themselves as secular.

The ongoing threat from the Iranian regime, which has repeatedly declared its desire to wipe out the Jewish state, is a noted contributor to Israelis’ distress over another Holocaust.

 The survey also asked Israelis how they think Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is widely observed in Israel as a day to memorialize the six million Jews murdered in the Shoah, will be commemorated in the future. Currently, telling the stories of the victims and survivors is the priority on this day, but this is becoming increasingly challenging as survivors are now in their 80s and 90s, meaning that soon there will be no living firsthand accounts of the attempted genocide.

In light of this, the poll found that most Israelis predict the day will be marked very differently in coming years. Forty-five percent of respondents said that within 30 years, it would be observed by events alone; 13% thought that it would not be marked at all and would be just another day.

Participants suggested increased exposure to recorded testimonies of survivors so that Holocaust Remembrance Day remains relevant, as well as subsidized trips to former Nazi concentration and death camps for every Israeli. Even so, 19% of respondents expressed the belief that it is inevitable that Holocaust Remembrance Day will lose its significance over time.  READ MORE
