CULTURE, TRADITIONS, RELIGION OR ETERNAL LIFE?
In Joshua 24, Joshua summoned all the people of Israel to him at Shechem, along with their leaders, the elders, officers, and judges. So they came and presented themselves before God. Then Joshua addressed them: “The Lord God of Israel says, ‘Your ancestors, including Terah the father of Abraham and Nahor, lived east of the Euphrates River; and they worshiped other gods. But I took your father Abraham from that land across the river and led him into the land of Canaan and gave him many descendants through Isaac, his son. Then you crossed the Jordan River and came to Jericho and I sent hornets ahead of you to drive out the kings and their people. It was not your swords or bows that brought you victory! “So revere God and serve him in sincerity and truth. Put away forever the idols your ancestors worshiped. FRIENDS, MANY OF US HAVE NOT GROWN UP IN GODLY HOMES. WE HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE: DO WE CONTINUE TO SERVE THE GODS OF OUR ANCESTORS OR SERVE THE GOD WHO BROUGHT US OUT OF DARKNESS AND BONDAGE? I PRAY TODAY, YOU WILL CHOOSE ETERNAL LIFE AND SERVE THE LIVING GOD WHO MADE THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH! Deuteronomy 4:23-24 Beware lest you break the contract the Lord your God has made with you! You will break it if you make any idols, for the Lord your God has utterly forbidden this. He is a devouring fire, a jealous God. 1 Peter 4:8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.

?NEWS ANALYSIS: What is goverrnment by murder? What does the election process teach us about American History and the act of committing gradual suicide? The fact that Black Mothers of victims of illegal and legal lynching can be used and abused throughout history including, most recently by both Democratic candidates proves the existence of gradual suicide in this century.

CLASSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK:
GOD IS THE GOD OF MIRACLES AND POWER!
In Joshua, Chapter 3, Joshua told the people: "Today you are going to know for sure that the living God is among you and that he destroy all the people who now live in the land you will soon occupy. Think of it! The Ark of God, who is Lord of the whole earth, will lead you across the river! All of a sudden, far up the river at the city of Adam, near Zarethan, the water began piling up as though against a dam! And the water below that point flowed on to the Dead Sea until the riverbed was empty. Then all the people crossed at a spot where the river was close to the city of Jericho, and the priests who were carrying the Ark stood on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan and waited as all the people passed by. OUR GOD IS A GOD OF MIRACLES! HE WILL DO THE IMPOSSIBLE TO SHOW US HIS POWER OVER ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN, EARTH AND BENEATH THE EARTH. AS GOD LED THE PEOPLE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, HE WILL LEAD US AND GUIDE US TODAY. OUR GOD IS ALIVE! HE IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER! Hebrews 13:8-9 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your spiritual strength comes as a gift from God, not from ceremonial rules.
Are the ruling elite attempting to crush what’s left of Western society? What responsibility does the Body of Christ have in these dark times? In today’s edition of TRUNEWS, Rick Wiles will preach a battle cry of Jericho — against the satanic communist revolution fermenting across the globe. Rick will also expose the striking similarities between Democracy Spring and the Jacobin French Revolution, both of which draw energy from the spirit of the antichrist.
