Beer Emergency Warning | Fascinating Insights
Beer Emergency Warning | Fascinating Insights
Global beer consumption stood at approximately 188.79 million kiloliters in 2018, up 0.8% from the previous year, the first time in four years. Total beer consumption in China decreased by 2.0% year-on-year due to the maturing of consumer demand and saturation of the market. On the other hand, products in the mid to high price range have been strong due to increased individual spending arising from more wealthy people. In the United Kingdom, beer consumption increased significantly by 5.7% year-on-year due to the Soccer World Cup and good weather. In the Philippines, beer consumption increased by 8.8% year-on-year. Although the growth in individual spending slew down slightly due to a temporary acceleration of inflation from factors such as rice shortage arising from weather, consumption increased overall for the year with support from the generally favorable external environment such as a better income situation brought about by sustained economic growth. Praise the Lord all glory to God In the Name of Jesus Christ

Christian Mother Facing False Accusation in India | Fascinating Insights
Days after Hindu extremists in northern India marched in protest to file a false claim against a Christian mother, her government employer transferred her to a district more than 100 miles away, sources said. Members of a Hindu-awakening movement in Baddi, Himachal Pradesh state on Wednesday (Feb. 13) staged a protest against conversions to Christianity that began at the headquarters of the Hindu Sanghatan, a coalition of Hindu extremist groups, and continued as they shouted angry slogans against Christians. Led by their district secretary, Sandeep Sachdeva, they marched to the Baddi police station and filed a complaint against Archana Jaiswal, a state education board employee and former Hindu who put her faith in Christ. The complaint alleges that Jaiswal offered money for Hindus to convert.

Australian church leaders have raised objections to a potential vaccine under development over concerns it contains cell lines “from an electively aborted human fetus.” The objections were sent in a letter to the prime minister, Scott Morrison, last week, cosigned by Catholic archbishop of Sydney Anthony Fisher, Anglican archbishop of Sydney Glenn Davies, and Greek Orthodox archbishop of Australia Makarios Griniezakis. However, scientists say the development process is a proven method and church priorities should be on ensuring public health against the coronavirus.

Miracles Happen | Fascinating Insights
Jesus promised that signs and wonders would follow those who believe. Justin Brierley reports on how Christ's words are coming true in countries around the world today. The story of baby Yasmin Gomes of Londrina, Brazil went viral last year. She stopped breathing shortly after she was born and, despite numerous attempts, the hospital staff were unable to resuscitate her. With no heartbeat or sign of oxygen in the body, a death certificate was issued by the doctor. A nurse placed the lifeless baby in a box on the altar of the hospital chapel. Naturally, the family were devastated. But when Yasmin’s grandmother came to collect the tiny body, she received the shock of her life. The baby’s leg kicked, and then she opened her eyes. After being ‘dead’ for three hours, Yasmin went on to experience a full recovery. Yasmin’s parents gave her the name Victoria – ‘victory’ in Portuguese – saying, ‘There is no explaining miracles. They happen as God wants. There must be a higher purpose in all this.’ The doctor said he had ‘never witnessed anything like this in 20 years of medicine’.

Big Foot Caught | Truth and Lies
Big Foot Caught | Truth and Lies
Bob Gimlin was a small town cowboy when his friend coaxed him into hunting the famous mythical creature 50 years ago. Today, as the legend of Bigfoot has grown, Gimlin is viewed by the community of believers around the country as something of a prophet. For weeks in the fall of 1967, the cowboys rode from sunrise to sunset in search of the creature no one had ever captured on film. Two rodeo men from Washington’s apple country, they’d traveled to Northern California’s thick forest. They’d read headlines of unidentifiable footprints. The smaller cowboy was driven by a long obsession with the mythic beast known as Bigfoot; the other liked to see things for himself. One late October afternoon near Bluff Creek, the men trundled on horseback, half a day’s ride from the nearest signs of civilization. The sun shone bright, lighting the leaves all around them in a grand finale of orange and red and yellow. Roger Patterson rode in front, pausing his quarter horse to point his lens toward the leaves, the film chattering inside his rented 16mm Cine Kodak camera. When he finished, he tucked the camera into his saddlebag, leaving the leather flap open. Bob Gimlin brought up the rear. He rode a quarter horse, leading a pony loaded with supplies behind him.* Patterson navigated around a bend where a large tree had fallen and jammed up the nearby creek—its root system upturned and exposed, like blind fingers reaching for an anchor.

PORTLAND — So, which Rose City is it? Is it the one that is now nationally infamous as the site — at press time for this newspaper — for nearly 100 consecutive evenings of protests, often riotous and violent, in the downtown core? And where now God’s Word has been publicly burned? Or is it the one where thousands can gather — also in the downtown area — to offer praise and worship to God and ask for His divine intervention to bring peace to the city, region and nation? Based on widely publicized activities that took place this past month and garnered national attention, the city currently appears to be both.

Let’s face it, folks, we’ll drive 10 hours for a vacation in Florida, but when we are needed most, Christians by enlarge run away from what God has called us to do! Well, you can change that today. Franklin Graham has organized a prayer march on Saturday, September 26, 2020, in Washington, D.C. The march will begin at the Lincoln Memorial with multiple stops along the way to our nation’s capital to pray for our nation and its leaders. It will begin at Noon and end at 2:00 PM. I live in Western North Carolina, and it is a 7-hour drive to Washington, but when I heard about the prayer march, I knew I had to be there. Our country is at a cross-road. We all know that, and by the Holy Spirit, we feel that. When you look to God’s Word, the Bible, for answers, you will find multiple occasions that the Israelites in the Old Testament were in trouble and only by humbling themselves and praying to God and repenting (turn away from) of their sins, did God hear from Heaven and heal their land.

Jesus Name in Old English Yeshus | Fascinating Insights
This a clip note with a little information for you. The name "Jesus" in English has a complicated linguistic history that isn't apparent in modern Bibles.  "Jesus" is an Anglicized form of the Greek name Iesous found in the New Testament. Iesous represents the Hebrew Bible name Yeshua, which occurs as "Jeshua" in English Bibles (Ezra 2:2; Neh 7:7). In Medieval English the "J" was pronounced as a "Y." "Yehoshua" Yeshua, in turn, is a shortened form of the name Yehoshua ("Joshua" in English Bibles). Moses' right-hand man, Joshua, has three names in the Bible. Originally, it was Hoshea, but Moses changed it to Yehoshua (Num 13:16). During the Babylonian Exile, it was shorted to Yeshua (Neh 8:17).

The calorie was first introduced by Nicolas Clément, as a unit of heat energy, in lectures during the years 1819–1824. This was the "large" calorie, viz. modern kilocalorie.[1][6] The term entered French and English dictionaries between 1841 and 1867. It comes from Latin calor, meaning 'heat'. The "small" calorie (modern calorie) was introduced by Pierre Antoine Favre (Chemist) and Johann T. Silbermann (Physicist) in 1852. In 1879, Marcellin Berthelot distinguished between gram-calorie (modern calorie) and kilogram-calorie (modern kilocalorie).[6] Berthelot also introduced the convention of capitalizing the kilogram-calorie, as Calorie.

Jesus Christ Reunites Husband and Wife Praise God | Fascinating Insights
Beena’s* family became Christian through a pastor in a nearby village telling them about Jesus, but they quickly started receiving threats from their Hindu neighbors. The threats became so severe that Beena sent two of her three children to live with relatives elsewhere. A few months ago, the persecution became much more extreme, culminating in a direct attack on them. “On the day of the attack, the villagers called us to the community meeting and blamed us for breaking the village rule by leaving our traditional faith and not paying the annual festival donations to the Hindu temple,” Beena said. “They hurled abuses on us and immediately started showering kicks and blows.” Villagers used bamboo sticks to beat them and some of them pulled off Beena’s clothes. When her husband tried to protect her, they grabbed him, tied his hands behind his back, and prepared to throw him in the nearby deep pond. While Beena runs away with her eleven-year-old son, she heard their attackers shout: “There is no chance he will escape today. He will die! He will drown with his faith today.”

Then the sounds became really clear. I could hear everything. I was incredibly happy.” While her parents were happy that her deafness was cured, they warned Saree not to go to church anymore: “The villagers can cut us off from the village,” they said. “We won’t be able to buy any food or drinks anymore and nobody will talk to us.” However, Saree continued to go to church, secretly. When her older brother found out about it, he started beating her. Her father took part as well. “One time I was carrying a Bible. My brother took it, threw it into the mud and beat me with a stick,” Saree said. “Later I collected the Bible, wiped it clean and gave it to another believer. He kept it safe for me.” Eventually, one day they gave her some clothes and pushed her out of the door. “You are not our daughter anymore,” her father said. With her unwavering faith, Saree left her family for her aunt’s home where she has been staying since then. Out of school and away from her family, Saree is longing to return home.

The pastor, You Guanda of Dianqian Church in Xiamen city, and his wife are scheduled to appear in court Sept. 23. According to Christian Concern, local government officials have charged the couple with “custody disputes.” The Dianqian Church has long been a target of the Chinese government. Last summer, for example, communist authorities disbanded the church’s worship facility after the pastor and other members purchased new space for homeschooling, worship, and residence, The Christian Post reported. It was demolished earlier this year. News of the crackdown on the preacher comes as the Chinese government is placing deeply restrictive rules over churches seeking to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. As Faithwire previously reported, any of the congregations within the government’s approved network of churches planning to resume services must meet a 42-item list of prerequisites.

Orphans Being Impacted | Fascinating Insights
Orphans Being Impacted | Fascinating Insights
Depending on the source, there are an estimated 153 million orphans around the world. And while 2020 isn't what any of us expected with COVID-19 disruption and devastation, these 153 million children have been impacted especially hard. First, they have no family for which they can cling to amidst uncertainty. While many orphanages and children's homes try their best to care for the hundreds of children under their care, nothing can replace family. In addition, these children are often the first group to be forgotten during a massive economic downturn, global uncertainty, and looming disaster. The pull of human nature is to become self-preserving during calamities which means the greatest carnage is usually those who lack voice and visibility. And the number of orphans worldwide continues to grow. Children of day laborers are particularly vulnerable. The pandemic has crippled nearly all of the economy upon which these families depend, thus taking away any hope of viability to care for their children. These and many other children who were already in danger of being abandoned or left homeless are much more likely to become displaced from their families.

Although Jewish people have always lived in the Holy Land, after the Holocaust the Jews began returning to Israel en masse.  In 1948, the Jewish nation was prophetically reborn (Isaiah 66:7–8) as the State of Israel, and ever since Jews have been streaming back to the Land from all four corners of the earth.

Bully | Fascinating Insights
There’s a lot of information out there dedicated to protecting our kids from bullying and enforcing policies to ensure it doesn’t happen, but the real key to stopping this problem is understanding it. Bullies are definitely people like the rest of us, so what’s so different about them that their social skills are so drastically different? It’s easy to just lump these kids into the “bad eggs” category, but the reality goes years back, all the way into a child’s upbringing and their years in preschool. Here we’ll explore some of the basic parallels that psychologists have drawn between bullying behaviors and the kids that exhibit them.

Praise Jesus Christ Glory To God Always and Forever Amen.   Jeremiah 6. O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction. 2 I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman. 3 The shepherds with their flocks shall come unto her; they shall pitch their tents against her round about; they shall feed every one in his place. 4 Prepare ye war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon. Woe unto us! for the day goeth away, for the shadows of the evening are stretched out. 5 Arise, and let us go by night, and let us destroy her palaces.

Iran Population Converting to Christianity | Fascinating Insights
For years, mission groups have been talking about the rapid growth of  Christianity in Iran and now a survey of Iranian citizens is backing up  those claims. Based in the Netherlands, the non-profit Group for Analyzing and Measuring Attitudes in Iran (GAMAAN) questioned 50,000 Iranians, 90 percent of whom live in the country. The results showed that 1.5 percent of those surveyed identified  themselves as Christian. Those numbers suggest there are probably  hundreds of thousands of Christians in the Islamic Republic and could  quickly be approaching one million.
