President Donald Trump will replace National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster with John Bolton on April 9, the White House announced late Thursday.
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” Psalm 122:6 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: With each passing day, the ramp up of the Trump administration to a pro-Israel position is astounding. The pick of John Bolton to replace H.R. McMaster as National Security Advisor, in light of the upcoming May 14th 70th anniversary of regathered Israel, is something right out of a Left Behind novel. You could not ask for someone who is more pro-Israel, and pro-Jerusalem for the Jews than John Bolton. The end times prophecy table is almost completely set now, nearly all the players have taken the stage, all we need is for the Lord to flip the switch and call us up and out of here. Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines is now boarding…all eyes on May 14th.
John Bolton, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, is a hawkish conservative with a pugnacious streak – and a frequent guest on the Fox News Channel. He is also a fierce opponent of the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal.
At one time a vacillating potential presidential candidate, the curmudgeonly Bolton will be the third person to be Trump’s chief national security aide in his 14-month presidency.
‘I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9.’
Trump has clashed with McMaster repeatedly in recent months, telling confidants that he considers the general a long-winded bore. His departure comes barely a week after the president dramatically ousted former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a tweet.
Trump’s national security staff appeared in disarray this week after he placed a congratulatory phone call to Russian President Vladimir Putin – who had won a fourth term in a lopsided election that critics called a corrupt ‘sham.’
National security aides, it emerged in an embarrassing leak, had cautioned him in written briefing documents: “DO NOT CONGRATULATE” – in all capital letters – but he did it anyway, following the example of Barack Obama in 2012.
Bolton was in the West Wing Thursday afternoon – along with his signature brush-like moustache – and met with Trump.
By dinnertime the White House Press Office was a hive of activity, with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, her deputy Raj Shah and outgoing communications director Hope Hicks huddling behind closed doors and taking brief interruptions only for trips down the hall to the Oval Office.
Because of the backstage frenzy, Trump was a half-hour late to a planned speech at an East Room event commemorating Greek Independence Day.
The president had told top aides that he wanted to put a new National Security Advisor in place before his planned meeting with North Korean despot Kim Jong-Un, a sit-down that is expected no sooner than late May.
A White House official said Thursday that Trump and McMaster ‘mutually agreed’ that he would ‘resign.’
‘The two have been discussing this for some time,’ the official added. ‘The timeline was expedited as they both felt it was important to have the new team in place, instead of constant speculation.’
McMaster, a three-star Army general, said in a statement that he will retire from the armed forces over the summer, passing up what was thought to be a chance to land a command position with a fourth star.
‘Throughout my career it has been my greatest privilege to serve alongside extraordinary servicemembers and dedicated civilians,’ he said.
‘I am thankful to President Donald J. Trump for the opportunity to serve him and our nation as national security advisor. I am grateful for the friendship and support of the members of the National Security Council who worked together to provide the President with the best options to protect and advance our national interests.’ source

NTEB has been hit with some serious bills related to our operating costs in 2018, the price of everything is going up! So we have prayerfully decided to extend our fundraiser into the springtime, specifically to May 14th, 2018. Without your generous support of this ministry, we would not be able to continue operating.
When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
Personally, I hate having to hold a fundraiser, I truly do. If I had them money I would give it all personally and never ask anyone for a penny. In fact, I have given everything I have to this ministry. But the Lord knows better than I do, and I believe with all my heart that He is asking all of you to invest in this ministry as well.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,426 people on our daily mailing list gave $2.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,913 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 600% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,500 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
