Huge explosions tonight rocked Kyiv, just hours after dozens were killed in Russian cluster bomb attacks in the eastern city of Kharkiv.

Here on Day 5 of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, things are dramatically heating up as Putin order Kyiv to be hit with massive shelling, sending giant fireballs of explosion into the night sky. But when we remember that Day 5 of the Russian Invasion is really Day 714 Of 15 Days To Flatten the Curve, things begin to make more sense.

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

On the Podcast today, we explored these things and what we found was that Putin’s war is actually creating a mobilized Europe, specifically Germany who is now pledging to spend $113 billion on beefing up their war machine capabilities. Whether intentional or merely opportunistic, the moment is not being lost on the very same people who brought us World Wars 1 and 2 over the last century. What is happening on the surface and played out in the headlines is not what is happening behind the scenes down the rabbit hole. Europe is mobilizing, that’s the real story.

Video showed moment that explosion rocked the Ukrainian capital Kyiv after night had fallen today

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Dramatic video filmed in the Ukrainian capital showed the moment that the night sky lit up with an enormous fire ball that reportedly stemmed from a military radar communication center. The new explosion took place hours after the Kremlin warned civilians to leave the city via a ‘safe route’ to the south-west, amid fears that the city was about to come under further heavy attack. Russia used similar tactics in Syrian cities while fighting alongside Basahar al-Assad before its forces heavily bombed them. Russian armour was working to surround Kyiv with tank manoeuvering to cut it off from the west, after attacks by advanced forces failed to penetrate the outskirts.

New satellite images also showed how a military convoy that stretched more than 17 miles (27km) was moving closer to the capital, a private U.S. company said. Private U.S. company Maxar Technologies Inc said the convoy on the eastern edge of Antonov airport contained hundreds of armoured vehicles, tanks, towed artillery and logistics support vehicles and continued to move south towards Kyiv. Colonel General Alexander Syrsky said early Monday that Kyiv had survived another night while inflicting ‘heavy losses’ on Russian attackers.

Earlier, Russia had appeared to use banned cluster munitions to indiscriminately shell civilian areas in Ukraine’s east that had stood up to Vladimir Putin’s invasion in what would constitute a war crime.  Kharkiv, which has witnessed some of the heaviest fighting of the war so far, was hit by rockets fired from Russian positions on Monday – with video showing a shopping centre in the Serpnia area blanketed by explosions. A military source told MailOnline that the videos showed ‘cluster’ munitions had been used.

‘The BM-21 Grad is a multiple launch rocket system used for ‘area denial’, dropping cluster bombs on a concentrated area,’ the expert said. ‘It’s mainly used on enemy troops before an offensive. Used against civilians, it’s not only a war crime, but has only one purpose – to spread terror and alarm among the civilian population.’

Graphic images and video revealed streets littered with the bodies of dead and badly wounded civilians, with other images showing showing spent BM-21 Grad rocket cartridges laying in the streets and having fallen through apartment roofs.

Cluster munitions were also to destroy a school in Okhtyrka, activist group Amnesty said, in which three people including a child were killed. The attack ‘appears to have been carried out by Russian forces, which were operating nearby, and which have a record of using cluster munitions in populated areas,’ Amnesty said.

‘There is no possible justification for dropping cluster munitions in populated areas, let alone near a school,’ secretary Agnes Callamard added.

The blasts mark some of the most-serious attacks on civilians since the war began five days ago, and came despite Ukrainian and Russian delegations sitting down in Belarus for ‘peace talks’.

Ukraine said ahead of the negotiations that it is seeking a ceasefire and total withdrawal of all Russian forces from its country, with President Zelensky saying he was not hopeful of results but had to try. Moscow would not be drawn on what its ambitions are. Observers have warned that the talks could pre-sage an increase in violence, as Putin increasingly deploys heavy weaponry that was absent from early fighting in an attempt to force a victory that he has been unable to achieve by subtler means.

Putin himself dashed many hopes for the talks today when, in a call with Emmanuel Macron, he said that he is willing to negotiate with Ukraine – but on the basis that it is disarmed, ‘de-Nazified’, recognises Crimea as Russian soil and declares neutrality. Kyiv is highly unlikely to accept those terms.  US intelligence believes around 75 per cent of Russian forces positioned on the borders with Ukraine are now inside the country.

Though Russian advanced forces have been fighting in Kyiv’s outskirts for several days, the bulk of Putin’s assault force is still located around 20 miles away having been slowed up by determined resistance fighters – with satellite images revealing a huge column of vehicles headed for the city. The cities of Zhytomyr, Zaporizhzhia, and Chernihiv were also bombed overnight, with air raid sirens sounding in other areas.

In the south, Russians reported capturing the port city of Berdiansk with troops and armoured vehicles shown rolling through the centre, and were closing in on the city of Mariupol which was in danger of becoming surrounded – though remained under Ukrainian control as of the early hours.

Speaking on Monday morning, President Volodymyr Zelensky called for Ukraine to be ‘immediately’ admitted to the EU – after the alliance stepped up to supply hundreds of million of dollars of military aid to Ukraine, a first in the bloc’s history – saying his country had ‘earned’ the right. He also said Russia’s attack had so-far killed 15 children, and wounded dozens more. U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet says her office has confirmed that 102 civilians, including 7 children, have been killed, and 304 others injured in violence in Ukraine since Thursday, as she cautioned that the tally was likely a vast undercount.  READ MORE

We Warned You Years Ago That Muslim Population Growth Would Overtake England, And That Day Has Officially Arrived As Christians At Less Than Half

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Fewer than half the people in England and Wales consider themselves Christian, according to the most recent census — the first time a minority of the population has followed the country’s official religion.

Here at NTEB, we have published nearly 10,000 articles and stories since 2011, and no matter how outrageous or shocking some of them have been, they all have aged quite well. Back in 2016, we wrote an article showing that according to population demographics, that Islamization of England had reached critical mass and could not be stopped. 6 years later, the headlines are blaring the news that Christians make up less than half of England’s population, making them the minority with the Muslims and the non-religious constituting the majority. Hate to say we told you so, but…pass the salt please, thanks.

“And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Genesis 16:12 (KJB)

This becomes all the more striking when you think of how powerful England was at the start of the 20th century, how they ruled the 7 Seas, and how the sun never set on their vast empire. But their light had gone about because of their mistreatment of the Jews in the Balfour Declaration. When you consider that England is the birthplace of the most important Book in human history, the King James Bible, and that Christians are vanishing in record numbers it present quite a sobering end times landscape indeed. There’s a lot of things God might overlook in the Age of Grace, but mistreatment of His chosen people is not one of them. Keep that in mind as you listen to London’s Muslim mayor, and walk the streets looking at the thousands of shuttered churches and all the shiny, new mosques under construction in Leeds, Portsmouth, Sheffield, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Nelson in Lancashire, and Boston in Lincolnshire.

Census: Christians a minority in England; non-religious grow

FROM THE AP: Britain has become less religious — and less white — in the decade since the last census, figures from the 2021 census released Tuesday by the Office for National Statistics revealed. Some 46.2% of the population of England and Wales described themselves as Christian on the day of the 2021 census, down from 59.3% a decade earlier. The Muslim population grew from 4.9% to 6.5% of the total, while 1.7% identified as Hindu, up from 1.5%.

More than 1 in 3 people — 37% — said they had no religion, up from 25% in 2011. The other parts of the U.K., Scotland and Northern Ireland, report their census results separately.

Secularism campaigners said the shift should trigger a rethink of the way religion is entrenched in British society. The U.K. has state-funded Church of England schools, Anglican bishops sit in Parliament’s upper chamber, and the monarch is “defender of the faith” and supreme governor of the church.

Andrew Copson, chief executive of the charity Humanists U.K., said “the dramatic growth of the non-religious” had made the U.K. “almost certainly one of the least religious countries on Earth.”

“One of the most striking things about these results is how at odds the population is from the state itself,” he said. “No state in Europe has such a religious set-up as we do in terms of law and public policy, while at the same time having such a non-religious population.”

Archbishop of York Stephen Cottrell, one of the most senior clerics in the Church of England, said the data was “not a great surprise,” but was a challenge to Christians to work harder to promote their faith.

“We have left behind the era when many people almost automatically identified as Christian, but other surveys consistently show how the same people still seek spiritual truth and wisdom and a set of values to live by,” he said.

Almost 82% of people in England and Wales identified as white in the census, down from 86% in 2011. Some 9% said they were Asian, 4% Black and 3% from “mixed or multiple” ethnic backgrounds, while 2% identified with another ethnic group. READ MORE

2016: It’s called Biological Jihad, and when fully implemented will result in a bloodless takeover of Europe by Muslims and Islam. More than a decade ago historian Bernard Lewis warned that if current migration trends continue, Europe will be Islamic by the end of the 21st century. Germany’s political elites are at the vanguard of making that prediction come true

2022: Just about finished.

As Russian Missile Fall In Poland Killing 2 People, Will It Trigger NATO’s Article 5 Provisions That Authorizes An Allied Attack Against Putin’s Forces?

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Two people have been killed in Poland after two stray Russian rockets landed near the border with Ukraine. The rockets landed in the NATO state following Russia’s mass bombardment of Ukrainian cities earlier today, which saw over 100 rockets launched.

As Russia pounded Ukraine with a series of fresh and aggressive missile strikes, two of those rockets went astray, landing in Poland and killing two people. According to the NATO charter, member nations would now be 100% justified in moving against Russia with military action. The only question is, does NATO have the appetite for world war with Russia? We are about to find out. The fact that this is happening during the G-20 Summit is wonderfully coincidental timing, to say the least.

But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.” Luke 21:9 (KJB)

Speaking of the G-20, the nearly 80-year old pretend president Joe Biden was not able to attend the high profile dinner because he ‘had a full day of meetings’. I wonder how much longer the New World Order will be able to continue renting Biden’s failing body? At some point, the whole charade will be exposed to the public, but honestly, it’s the worst-kept secret in Washington.

At least two dead after Russian missiles land in NATO state Poland on Ukraine border

FROM EXPRESS UK: According to the AP news agency, a senior US intelligence official said that the missiles were of Russian origin. Poland’s Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, has convened the Committee of the Council of Ministers for National Security and Defense Affairs “as a matter of urgency”, government spokesman Piotr Müller confirmed, with local news sites claiming this is likely the result of the explosions. The meeting will reportedly take place at 9pm local time (8pm British time).

The rockets fell in the town of Przewodów, hitting grain dryers. The police, prosecutor’s office and the army are reportedly already on the site. Meanwhile, Polish Armed Forces are reportedly on “high alert”. The attack could prompt Poland to trigger NATO’s Article 5 provisions, calling on all of the treaty’s members to attack Russia. According to Article 5, an attack against one NATO Ally is considered an attack against all Allies.

Some analysts have suggested the rockets’ intended target may have been Lviv, a Ukrainian city about 100km south of Przewodów. The missile fell 65 kilometres within Poland.

“The most important people in the country” are attending Poland’s emergency meeting, according to local news outlet Radio Zet.

The station also reported that military planes were scrambled in response. The price of oil has already reacted to the rockets landing in Poland, climbing 2.3 percent to $87.82 according to the West Texas Intermediate benchmark. Latvia’s Minister of Defence, Artis Pabriks, said: “My condolences to our Polish brothers in arms. Criminal Russian regime fired missiles which target not only Ukrainian civilians but also landed on NATO territory in Poland.

“Latvia fully stands with Polish friends and condemns this crime.”

The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has also reportedly convened his defense council. The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs have also declared their “full solidarity” with Poland, saying it is “convening closely with Poland and other Allies.”

The ministry added: “Estonia is ready to defend every inch of NATO territory.” READ MORE

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak Turns Against Israel By Refusing To Follow Through On His Previous Pledge To Move The British Embassy To Jerusalem

Published

on

uk-prime-minister-rishi-sunak-reverses-pledge-to-move-british-embassy-from-tel-aviv-to-jerusalem
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has apparently scrapped plans to look at moving Britain’s embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, despite previously claiming to support its recognition.

Back after World War I, England lost their status as a world superpower by betraying the Jews in what is known as the Balfour Declaration. In a nutshell, they promised to create a homeland for the Jews in Palestine, and reneged on their promise. Just this week, newly-elected Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who had promised to move the British embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, showing recognition for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversed course and now has refused to do it. Why? Because Rishi Sunak does not believe that Jerusalem is part of Israel, regardless of any previous statements he may have made.

“And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel.” 2 Chronicles 20:29 (KJB) 

As we told you this afternoon on our Friday Prophecy News Podcast, the Middle East is a beehive of end times activity, and the stage has been set for the soon arrival of Antichrist. Benjamin Netanyahu has been returned to power in a miraculous turn of events, and the table appears to be nearly set for the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. What does all this mean? It means that the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, a doctrine no longer preached in hardly any Christian church, is mere moments away. The last Baptist church I was a part of didn’t preach one sermon on the Rapture, rightly dividing, or dispensational truth, and your church probably hasn’t either. That’s why we’re here, to stand in the gap and give you the Bible, so you can know just how close we really are. And guess what? We are closer than you could possibly imagine.

PM Rishi Sunak Scraps Planning to Move British Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Prime Minister Sunak’s short-lived predecessor as premier, Liz Truss, said she would “review a move” of the British embassy to Israel during her campaign for the Conservative Party leadership in August, following in the footsteps of President Donald Trump.

While the State of Israel officially regards Jerusalem as its capital, and key institutions including the Knesset (legislature), Supreme Court, central bank, and several government ministries are sited there, principally in the neighbourhood of Givat Ram, most Western countries do not recognise it as such and have their embassies commute into the city from bases in Tel Aviv, in order to appease the Palestinian Authority and various Islamic polities.

Sorry, Just Kidding!

Sunak, who lost to Liz Truss in the Conservative Party leadership race but was installed by fellow MPs shortly afterwards without an election anyway, does not appear willing to buck this trend, with a spokesman for 10 Downing Street that a move had been “looked at” but there are now “no plans to move the British embassy,” according to the left-wing Guardian.

This is despite the fact that, while he was running for leader in August, Sunak claimed he believed that Jerusalem was “undisputedly the historic capital” of Israel and that there was “clearly” a “very strong case for it to be recognised” as such.

“It is something I would like to do,” he added.

The fact he will apparently not be doing so has been welcomed by Husam Said Zomlot, Head of the Palestinian Mission to the United Kingdom.

“We would like thank the UK government, faith leaders, activists and members of the public whose efforts have helped keep the UK in line with international law in this matter,” Zomlot said. “The question about the location of the UK’s embassy should never have been asked for in the first place.”

Sunak’s climbdown follows an even more dramatic about-face by Australia’s relatively new leftist government, which reversed a decision to recognise even West Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — East Jerusalem, only annexed by Israel in 1980, was not part of the recognition — earlier this month, souring relations with the Israeli government.

The recent change of government in the UK seems to be ushering in not only an economic shift but also a foreign policy shift. It seems that the UK is now backing down from a controversial move proposed by the former Prime Minister Liz Truss to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
