Starting next week, people who are involved in gay sex and adultery will be stoned to death, according to Bruneian laws.
Homosexuality, which is already illegal in Brunei, will soon be deemed a capital offence. The Daily Mail reports that the oil-rich nation previously practised a punishment of up to 10 years imprisonment for being involved in homosexual activities. However, starting April 2019, LGBT people convicted of this offence will be stoned to death.
Do note that this is placed under Sharia law, which is only applicable to Muslims.
Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Matthew Woolfe who is the founder of human rights group The Brunei Project confirms that this law will be implemented by the start of April.
“An independent lawyer with whom I am in contact with in Brunei also confirmed that the Gazette with this announcement was sent to all law firms in Brunei in January.”
The law can be found gazetted under the Syariah Penal Code 2013 here.

Of course, when news broke out about the passing of this new law, people from all over the world voiced their concerns. According to SCMP, this law was actually announced back in 2013 but its implementation was delayed as officials wanted to work out the practical details, plus that law was facing very heavy criticism internationally.
This isn’t the only controversial law that will soon be implemented, though.
Thieves to have their limbs cut off
Anyone who is caught for robbery will have their right hand amputated for a first offence, and the left foot for a second offence.
These new penalties also apply to children, and they come into effect April 3 this year.

Matthew Woolfe, founder of human rights group The Brunei Project said that the legal changes were announced in a discreet notice via the attorney general’s website.
Rachel Chhoa-Howard, Brunei researcher at Amnesty International, said some of the potential offences “should not even be deemed crimes at all, including consensual sex between adults of the same gender”.
“To legalise such cruel and inhuman penalties is appalling of itself,” she adds.
Leviticus 18 : 22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.
Leviticus     18: 23 You shall not have sexual relations with any animal and defile yourself with it, nor shall any woman give herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it: it is perversion. 
Leviticus 20 : 13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them. (NRS w/Apocrypha)
Leviticus 20 :13 If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them. (NASB) What happen?

From one article, the statement of Faith as stated that they believed the Old Testament and New Testament as originally given to be fully inspired and infallible Word of God, and the SUPREME and FINAL AUTHORITY  in all matters of FAITH and CONDUCT. 

Where does the above scripture verses fitted to this statement of faith. This makes Christians Faith weak for not keeping and applying the Law and make the words and the Commandments of God so weak and been water-down because of  false teachings and weak implementation in the area of the scriptures. God words are NOT weak and powerless or else God is weak! It's the people who say they believed, but so motivated by evil to twist the word of God to fit their own evil intentions and lustful desires.

Jezebel Spirit in the Modern Society

Jezebel Spirit in America? Elijah’s Tactic on Mt. Carmel

JEZEBEL SPIRIT IN AMERICA? ELIJAH’S TACTIC ON MT. CARMEL

“Of the twenty-two civilizations that have appeared in history, nineteen of them collapsed when they reached the moral state the United States is in now.” -Arnold Joseph Toynbee
Before time runs out, we simply must recognize what is happening to our beloved America, and call upon God to heal our nation. We must repent! See Novena For Our Nation.

CURRENT CONDITION
We know that Sacred Scripture teaches that whole nations can be overrun by a demonic spirit (Rev. 16:13-15; Acts 13:6-9). This can come through any or all of the ruling class, whether that is the ruling political powers that be or through any number of sources of power and influence.
In 2011, Jeffrey Kuhner wrote in the Washington Times:
“For the past 50 years, every major institution has been captured by the radical secular left. The media, Hollywood, TV, universities, public schools, theater, the arts, literature — they relentlessly promote the false gods of sexual hedonism and radical individualism. Conservatives have ceded the culture to the enemy. Tens of millions of unborn babies have been slaughtered; illegitimacy rates have soared; divorce has skyrocketed; pornography is rampant; drug use has exploded; sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS have killed millions; birth control is a way of life; sex outside of wedlock has become the norm; countless children have been permanently damaged — their innocence lost forever — because of the proliferation of broken homes; and sodomy and homosexuality are celebrated openly. America has become the new Babylon” (Jeffrey T. Kuhner, Washington Times, January 20, 2011).
Even as Mr. Kuhner wrote this article, our nation still believed marriage was reserved for a man and woman for the procreation of children. In that very short period of five years, our nation has surrendered to this “ruling class” who continues to advance their narrative. Moreover, we have witnessed our nation’s judicial sanction the ability of men to enter into little girl’s restrooms.

ROOTS OF CONDITION
As quickly as things seem to be deteriorating, many believe the “weakening of the West” has been 700 years in the making.
Shortly after WWII, Richard Weaver published the book, “Ideas Have Consequences.” Weaver’s book traces the deterioration of the West back to the 14th century when, as he says, Western man made an “evil decision.” Influenced by William of Occam’s philosophy of nominalism, the West began it’s spiral downward, having abandoned its belief in transcendent universals:
“The denial of universals carries with it the denial of everything transcending experience. The denial of everything transcending experience means inevitably…the denial of truth. With the denial of objective truth there is no escape from the relativism of ‘man is the measure of all things” (Richard Weaver, Ideas Have Consequences).
No longer “tethered to the transcendent,” we are left to our own ideas of truth. In fact, we end up in the company of such great cynics as Pontius Pilate who retorted, “What is truth?”
By 1951, this “man worshipping” modernism had already contaminated America’s Supreme Court. In “Dennis et al. vs. U.S.” Chief Justice Fred A. Vinson observed:
“Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes ….all concepts are relative.”
Around the same time, Anthony Harrigan pointed to the fierce and subtle movement of the ruling class:
“Modernists are determined to force the acceptance of pornography as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion…Though the life of the country is basically decent, Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class which…is conducting us to ruin. The amoral ruling class seeks to raise up a ‘liberal-bred barbarian’ motivated by a destructive impulse and unchecked by ‘traditional values and restraints,’ in order to destroy America from within, noted Harrigan” (George H. Nash, The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America)
Dennis Prager points to the Music industry in its mission to produce “liberal-bred barbarians:”
“The music industry, from producers to artists, is largely populated by people who regard social and cultural norms as stifling. Their professional lives are dedicated to lowering that which is elevated, destroying that which uplifts, and to profaning that which is held sacred.”
The liberal-bred barbarianism, described by Prager, is not limited to the music industry. As Jeffrey Kuhner pointed out, it is replete throughout the “ruling class” or, what he refers to as, the major institutions of the “radical secular left.”

COUNTRY CLASS BEWARE!
Some refer to us as the “Country Class.” We are the ones who, by and large, have kept America’s founding Judao-Christian philosophical worldview. We still hold that men are created in the spiritual likeness of God the Father and that all men are therefore subject to His laws. But, that is deteriorating at an alarming rate.
There are two movements spreading like wildfire throughout the Western world. Robert Enright warns:
“There are two over-simplified and very dangerous ideas emerging:
 1) There is no personal responsibility because of brain activity which determines how we behave, rendering free will impossible;
 2) Social forces of poverty and oppression determine how we behave, rendering free will impossible.
Beware of these over-simplifications of humanity.
 Do you see the implication….no really….do you see it? If there is no personal responsibility, then there are no moral offenses…..rendering forgiveness impossible. Why? How can you forgive those who just couldn’t help it?” –Robert Enright
This “relieving anyone of moral responsibility” is the coup de grâce – the “kill punch” – of the ruling class’ modernist movement. Once we accept that we were not created by God in his image – and cease to spend our lives striving to be as perfect as our Heavenly Father is perfect – we are left to stand as a soulless human ape who is subject to or “a victim of” his circumstances. Weaver dubbed this way of thinking the “spoiled-child psychology” of modern man, who had “not been made to see the relationship between reward and effort.”
I called this the coup de grâce, because “now” we are in the very place the “ruling class” wants us to be … completely dependent upon them. If we are “just” soulless barbarians, we “can’t help ourselves” … we have “no power” to chase perfection and catch excellence. The ruling class then claims all of the power to “control” us based on our willingness to heed their dictates.
Have we completely lost our drive to strive to the heights of our humanity as children of God? Where is “Honor” any longer?

JEZEBEL SPIRIT IN AMERICA
It is uncanny how much this moment in history resembles the conflict between Elijah and Jezebel; between the power of God and the satanic lie of Baal. Are we under the demonic influence of Jezebel?
Jezebel first appears in 1 Kings 16, when she marries Ahab, king of Israel. Jezebel was the daughter of Ethbaal, the king and high priest of the Baal worshipping Sidonians. Baal worship was closely associated with obsessive sensuality and often involved sex acts. Jezebel, as a daughter of this perverse kingdom, was raised in an atmosphere where sex was a path to power and influence (sounding familiar yet?).
Ahab, King of Israel, was completely subdued and dominated by Jezebel (a type of modern man?). Jezebel then introduced the worship of Ashtoroth to Israel. This god/goddess was a power-hungry goddess of sensuality. Priestess-prostitutes filled her shrines and serviced her worshippers. The lure of these legal, readily available erotic encounters was more than the men of Israel would resist. By Jezebel’s influence, most Israelites, the northern kingdom, left the worship of God for Baal and Ashtoroth. The prophet Elijah laments that only 7000 men in the entire nation were not swayed by her control …
… How many men have left God, in our times – exchanged the power of supernatural grace for sensual pleasure – by simply clicking on to easy access porn sites? How many men have either abandoned their family or refuse to get married at all?
The Jezebel spirit is born of rebellion (1960s? Now?). The Spirit of Jezebel is basically a controlling spirit working through the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (The counter forces to these are poverty, chastity and obedience).
Other ways a Jezebel spirit can gain power of a nation …
  • Puts power and politics ahead of people
  • Baal worshippers would propagate child sacrifice (today’s abortion)
  • Operates through fear and intimidation (Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals)
  • Intolerant of Word of God (Banish God from public sphere, loss of religious freedom)
  • Allows seduction to prevail
  • Twists truth; Lies
  • Usurps the law
  • Propagates sorcery; Black magic (New Age, Reiki, crystals, horoscopes, ouija boards, luck charms, etc.)
Is any of this sounding familiar? It should. This almost perfectly describes the Motus Operandi of most of the liberal secular ruling class in power today.
What are our altars to Baal? When we work, not to live, but live to work so that we can buy more material things, we are building an altar to a false god. When we desire popularity or notoriety and pledge to do anything to get that attention, we are building that altar. When we allow drugs, alcohol, pornography or any other addiction to rule our lives, we are putting another brick in the altar that resides within our hearts. When we put others on a pedestal, such as famous athletes, movies stars, or even someone we know personally, we are building an altar to worship someone other than God. When we are constantly worried about how we look, how we are perceived, or how much others like us, we build an altar to ourselves; we become Baal.

ELIJAH’S TACTIC
Among prophets of ancient Israel, Elijah stands out, impelled by God to bring the people to conversion. His name means “the Lord is my God”, and his life develops in accordance with this name, entirely dedicated to kindling in the people gratitude to the Lord as the one God.
Now, when most of Israel was captivated by the seduction of idolatry, and deluding themselves into believing they can serve two masters, Elijah proposes a challenge to Jezebel and the her Baal worshippers to “put up or shut up.”
On Mt. Carmel, both he and the prophets of Baal were to prepare a sacrifice and pray and the true God would reveal himself, responding with fire that would burn the offering. After all kinds of antics by the prophets of Baal, including cutting themselves, no fire came from heaven to burn their sacrifice.
Elijah then prepares his sacrifice on the altar and cries out to God, “O Lord, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that you are God in Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have done all these things at your word. Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you have turned their hearts back.” And this is what happened: “then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, ‘The Lord he is God; the Lord, he is God.’”
On Mt. Carmel, Elijah calls upon and trusts in the supernatural power of God, and the people “Repented” of the error of their ways and turned back to God. This is the Gift of the Holy Spirit usually called the Gift of Awe and Wonder. I wrote about this necessary “trigger gift” HERE. We simply must believe in, call upon and lead people to the supernatural power of God if we ever hope for the salvation for our nation!
St. Dominic (1170-1221) – Blessed Virgin Mary to Saint Dominic, “One Day through the Rosary and Scapular I will save the World”- These words would not be spoken by the Blessed Virgin Mary unless her Son was not readily available in the Blessed Sacrament. Our Lady would confirm this warning at Fatima (1917) by appearing as Our Lady of the Rosary and ending these apparitions as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel wearing the brown habit of the Carmelites and holding the Brown Scapular.
We must repent! We must pray the rosary, wear the scapular and go “often” to Confession!!
Interesting that the “Challenge to Baal” occurred on our Nation’s Capital grounds at the conclusion of Novena for Our Nation. See HERE.
 Sad that this kind of Spirit has influence and extended here in the Philippines from the source of same beliefs.

Lates update of effect and infected areas of Novel Corona Virus.

South Korea becomes biggest coronavirus centre outside China

 AFP News 2 hours 27 minutes ago 

I'm in Fear.

It's so funny how the world, specially here in the Philippines are reacting so much of this Novel Corona Virus fever, media left and right surfaces regarding this killer NVCon that would be good for our awareness and careful protection. Please don't get me wrong, of seeing this as if it's NOT dangerous . I'm not taking it lightly, its really dangerous.! But most are panicking and in fear that it had infested and dominated most hearts. And we should take every precautionary measures in the dealing with it. 

Learning from the scriptures; How fear operates and intimidates. You'll see how darkness uses it, to paralyze and cripple specially those who are weak and fainting in faith. When fear is present and dominating, faith is deactivated and paralyzed, so deal with your fear courageously! Seeing this in spiritual perspective that, the might and strength of darkness is in EVIL and SIN and one element it uses in reigning and intimidating it's prey is through FEAR, so please don't be careless, but rather be cautious and attentive. In the Old and New testaments, every-time the heroes of faith and the people of God faces taunting obstacles, God will always send a message through His Angels or He will spake directly to His servants and say " Do nor fear!", Noah. Moses, David, Samuel, Mary, the disciples of Jesus and others. In the book of beginning this is the first result after Adam and Eve transgressed and committed sin "They where naked and now afraid, and was so afraid and got lost of sight of God and hid themselves in FEAR of guilt from the presence of God in the garden of Eden. 

Then, where fear came? And who is the author of fear? How did it exist and infested humanity. You'll be surprised with my answer that fear came from God. But He confined and control sin and fear within His law. Evil and all it's power and existence are all subjected to God Almighty even the Law of sin and death He is the only being who can control, govern, confine and capsulize everything including Evil. 
The garden of Eden was full of the presence of God, that He would walk in the cool and refreshing atmosphere of the day. Evil was confined in the tree of knowledge good and evil and can't affect, infect and even death can't do anything to destroy, UNTIL Eve give-in to the word of Satan and Evil was released from its confinement and now was able to dominated, contaminate and destroy, immediately the whole tone, mode, atmosphere and attitude of the whole creation of God became vicious, rebellious,  foul smells of death, demons was released, violence and murder was the first evidence of a change character and nature of the whole creation, love and unity was turned to hatred and murder, factions and chaos dominated the garden. From then it was history.

More more are in fear and  being crippled with frustration of not finding an immediate solution not only in our society, even in the World with this escalating threat of  this Killing Virus. One assesses it that, it will escalate from a thousand and millions, if not able to confine, contain it and find the best solution to stop the spreading of this plague. 
This is a worldwide holocaust in a different form. 

Or would this be the tribulation of the end times from the book of Revelation. The beginning of the birth pangs in the gospel? How should we act and react with this? Should we just wait until it's on our doors steps or inside our sweet home and family and one of dear one is dying with it?. Where will the answer comes? Who has the answer? Can this be solved instantly? What will happen if modern medicine can't  give a cure and bring out the answer to this epidemic? Who has the answer? Need a prophet, magicians, astrologers to tell us the spiritual understanding about times and things behind this? Where all of this prophesied in scriptures? A challenge in today's time and generation even religion. An ageless being that talks about the answer to all of this is the Creator Himself. When human can't find with all his boasted intelligence, ingenuity and wisdom, exposing it's limitation, this open up to consider a more higher law, a being of highest intelligence and wisdom and It will still be pointing back to God the creator of all things. Who created all things for His glory. Has the answer to all of this. 

A heartbreaking open letter from a Wuhan resident: “Not all Chinese are bad people”

Ms. Helen Chen
The open letter of a young woman posted via Facebook highlighting the challenges the Wuhan people are facing now has gone viral, with thousands of people sharing her observations and heartbreak.

Ms Helen Chen referred to people saying that the city’s residents deserved what had befallen them and called that “heartbreaking”.

In her open letter, she said: "And I’m so sorry the virus has now spread to other countries. I truly am very sorry. But not all Chinese are bad people. Not all are selfish and entitled and just downright disgusting human beings. I don’t think it’s fair for you to say that we all ‘deserve’ it because of the terrible behaviours of some.”

Read her full open letter below:

I’m one of the millions in Wuhan right now who is affected by this. It is heartbreaking to see comments here saying how we deserve it.

Yes. Some people are disgusting and uneducated, they eat everything that moves and have total disregard for health/safety regulations. But most people aren’t like that. Most of us are just normal folks living a normal life. We are just as angry at those exotic animal traders as you are, if not more.


It’s CNY, and in case you’re not familiar with the Chinese culture, let me first put into perspective it’s importance. It’s like thanksgiving and Christmas combined. Historical/Traditional significance aside, for millions of people, CNY is the only time of the year where families get to reunite and have a home cooked meal together. It is more common than not for chinese people in more rural areas to go to cities to find better work opportunities. They work hard for the whole year, sending home the little money they earn to support their children and parents. Families don’t get to see each other for a whole year and reunion dinner on CNY eve is something everyone looks forward to.


The coronavirus is taking away the only time of the year that families get to reunite. Doctors and nurses are working around the clock, many of them have not gone home in weeks; healthcare professionals across China are flying voluntarily to Wuhan to help; factory workers have resumed work due to the shortage of masks and protective suits; 3M and other companies are donating masks too; hotels across Wuhan have offered free accomodation to healthcare professionals whose home are too far away; chain convenient stores are providing free hot meals to hospitals and workers; delivery man have to give up their holidays to deliver food to families because we can’t leave our homes; construction workers are working around the clock to build new hospitals... do all these people working tireless to save lives deserve to get affected and die too??? Those selfish exotic animal traders have taken away precious family time from all these people who are literally putting their lives in danger to help others, and yet on the Internet, these unsung heroes are being lumped together with them, criticised condemned and humiliated. It’s really heartbreaking. Those people don’t deserve any of it.


As of now, most of our fridges are still fully stocked from CNY, but what about in a week or even a couple of days when we run out of food? My parents just came back from the supermarket and many shelves are empty. Public transport have shut down completely, from today onwards vehicles unrelated to the containment of coronavirus will not be allowed on roads too, no one is allowed to leave Wuhan. So let me ask you, do all of us deserve this too? Especially during a time of supposed celebration. I’m not even a permanent resident here, I am just home for the holidays after being away for more than a year. But now I can’t leave to go back to Uni. I’m sure there are many people in similar situations as me. I hope I’m not coming off as playing the victim. I’m merely trying to tell my side of the story. And I’m so sorry the virus has now spread to other countries. I truly am very sorry. But not all Chinese are bad people. Not all are selfish and entitled and just downright disgusting human beings. I don’t think it’s fair for you to say that we all “deserve” it because of the terrible behaviours of some.
