  1. Media wants to bum you out and make you feel hopeless ๐Ÿ˜ฉ and drive you into apathy SO YOU WILL NOT FIGHT BACK!
    Fight back anyway!

  2. The world is experiencing all the conditions and the many specific events and astronomical signs that were recorded in the Holy Bible indicating the end of the age and Jesusโ€™ promised second coming. Prophecy is about 1/4 of the Bible letting us know what will happen in the future. Jesus stated in John 14:29 โ€œAnd now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe.โ€ I have created a space that covers a good portion of them that have come to pass with other resources that are also trying to bring awareness and hope. There are posts there that explain the specific foretold generation that would experience this, the foretold Mark of the Beast that is emerging on the world scene, some foretold astronomical signs, and much more. I hope it is the blessing for you like it has been for me.

  3. I think the biggest losses are in foreign travelers. Nobody wants to come here because TRUMP incompetence to stop the spread of coronavirus. All he had to do was wear a mask” and could have done so much more.
