Verse(s) for today:
looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2 KJV
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
Luke 9:23-24 KJV
that there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
1 Corinthians 12:25-27 KJV
Thought(s) for the Day:
> Maybe they aren’t Conspiracy Theorists. > Maybe they just see something you don’t. > Maybe they’ve learned something you haven’t yet. > Maybe they understand a pattern you don’t see yet. > Maybe they aren’t crazy…maybe they actually see through the propaganda and even in the face of ridicule, are trying to translate it for you.
Noah was thought to be a Conspiracy Theorist…
until it started to RAIN!
At that time everyone knew the truth…
And only eight made it through!
Get ready for what is ahead… and remember:
If God takes you TO IT…
He will take you through IT!
Just like; Noah [Flood] – Daniel [Lion’s Den] – Shadrak, Meshach, Abednego [Fiery Furnace] – etc.
God is a FLAME…
For those who have accepted His Provision [Jesus as Saviour] that FLAME burns WITHIN!
For those who have rejected His Provision [Jesus as Saviour] that FLAME burns WITHOUT
[He himself is ‘The Lake-of-Fire]. [Don Brooks]
Has Grace Got a Hold on You?
“For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:9-10
Paul was someone that religionists could get behind, and they did. By his admission, he was “a Hebrew of Hebrews, a Pharisee, and concerning the righteousness which is in the law – blameless” (Philippians 3:5). What would possibly make him relinquish his lofty spiritual resume to humbly confess, “by the grace of God I am what I am?” It all hinged on one crucial word: grace.
Paul encountered Jesus and realized that nothing in his background or works warranted God’s unmerited favor—grace does that. Anything is possible when the gospel of grace is at work in a life. A good case in point is Peter. As a rough fisherman, a Galilean, no one would’ve paid much attention to Peter. The intelligentsia would have scorned him as an uneducated country bumpkin. Here again, grace is the key. On the day of Pentecost, Peter’s shortcomings were inconsequential to the Holy Spirit, and by the grace of God, he went from foot-in-the-mouth Peter to a man with a powerful message. Grace revolutionized Peter and Paul, setting each in a new direction. It is never a case of what you can or cannot accomplish but what God’s grace enables you to do. Neither of these men considered themselves to be an isolated phenomenon. And if they were here today, they would ask, “What is your story? How has grace taken hold of you?

Ukraine Vows to Defend 'Fortress' Bakhmut
Kyiv said Sunday it was holding off attacks from Russian troops still attempting to surround Bakhmut, a now-destroyed eastern Ukrainian city that Moscow has been trying to capture for months.
Ukraine has vowed to defend "fortress Bakhmut" but it has faced Russian troops determined to take the city that has turned into a political prize as the battle drags on.
The Ukrainian general staff said "more than 130 enemy attacks" had been repelled over the past day including in Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut and Avdiivka.
"The enemy continues its attempts to encircle the town of Bakhmut," it said on Sunday morning.
Bakhmut has been mostly reduced to rubble during the longest and bloodiest battle of the invasion.
Sergiy Cherevaty, a spokesman for Ukrainian forces, said on Saturday the situation was "difficult but under control" in the city he described as a "priority target for the enemy".
There is fighting in an around the city, the US-based Institute for the Study of War (ISW) said, warning that with Ukrainian supply routes were narrowing.
"The Russians may have intended to encircle Ukrainian forces in Bakhmut, but the Ukrainian command has signalled that it will likely withdraw rather than risk an encirclement," ISW said Saturday.
Ukraine and Russia have since the summer fiercely fought for the city, whose symbolic importance surpassed its military significance.
- Rivalries -
Pro-russian separatists in the Donetsk region posted a video purporting to show Wagner fighters in the suburbs north of Bakhmut, having taken control over the Stupki railway station.
Wagner, a private army headed by Yevgeny Prigozhin, has taken centre stage in the fight for the city, which has exposed rivalries with Russia's conventional forces.
On Friday, Prigozhin said his fighters had "practically encircled" Bakhmut, and only one road remained under Ukrainian control.
Prigozhin has for weeks been publicising the advances of his men towards the eastern city.
Prigozhin regularly posts videos of himself alongside mercenaries, on the ground or even in a fighter jet, in contrast with Russian generals criticised for shirking the frontline.
In a rare exception, Russia on Saturday released a video of defence minister Sergei Shoigu inspecting troops in frontline regions in Ukraine.
The ministry said Sergei Shoigu inspected an advance command post in the South Donetsk direction without specifying exactly where or when.
He was seen travelling in a helicopter and talking to a soldier in front of damaged buildings.
The ISW think tank said Shoigu went there "likely to assess the extent of Russian losses around Vugledar and the possibility of a further offensive in this direction".
- Zaporizhzhia 'hostage' -
While the epicentre of the fighting is in the east of Ukraine, the death toll from a strike this week on an apartment block in southern Zaporizhzhia has now risen to 13.
Zaporizhzhia is one of the four regions -- along with Donetsk, Lugansk and Kherson -- that Russia claims to have annexed but never fully controlled.
Still, Moscow's forces have held the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant since March 4, 2022.
The plant has repeatedly made headlines and revived fears of nuclear catastrophes similar to the deadly Chernobyl disaster that shook Ukraine in 1986.
The exiled mayor of Energodar, which houses the central, told AFP Russia uses the plant as a "nuclear shield" to for its troops and equipment.
Kyiv and Moscow have blamed each other for shelling around the plant and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) posted observers there.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Saturday that Russia took the nuclear power plant "hostage" a year ago, and "turned the territory of the (power plant) into a de facto military training ground".
Zelensky on Saturday also met with European Parliament's president Roberta Metsola, who urged for Ukraine to be allowed to begin EU membership negotiations this year.
The United States announced a new $400 million security aid package for Ukraine on Friday that featured a range of ammunition for Kyiv's forces.

Russia Issues A Spine-Chilling Threat To Western Leaders
Russia on Thursday warned the United States and NATO they would suffer “catastrophic repercussions” if they continued to support the war in Ukraine.
“The U.S. and NATO policies targeted at further inflaming the crisis in and surrounding Ukraine,” according to Sergei Ryabkov, deputy foreign minister of Russia, is currently “the most severe strategic threat.”
“Their increasing involvement in an armed conflict is dangerous because it raises the possibility of a direct military conflict between nuclear powers with fatal repercussions.”
AFP informs In contrast to the Western diplomats who had gathered for a nearby picture opportunity standing in front of a mural painted inside the yellow and blue of the Ukrainian flag during his planned speaking time, Russia’s diplomatic representative spoke in front of a mostly empty chamber.
“We regard this as an extraordinary display of solidarity with the Ukrainian individuals fighting an unwarranted and unjustified Russia’s assault,” Ukraine’s envoy Yevheniia Filipenko told the site.
“We are here to support our Ukrainian colleague until Russia removes its tanks from the field of Ukraine,” according to reports from British ambassador Simon Manley.
“Their battle is our battle,”
Russia has threatened to take action just days after NATO granted Ukraine’s bid for membership as soon as possible, according to Breitbart News.
During a visit to Helsinki, the capital of Finland, Stoltenberg said to reporters, “NATO allies have decided that Ukraine will become an official member of our alliance, yet at the same time this represents a long-term perspective.”
The notion that membership is just a step away was reiterated in Kiev by Stoltenberg’s speech.
In a video message delivered on Thursday morning, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emphasized the importance of extending a high-level war crimes probe into Moscow’s operations against its neighbor, a so-called Commission of Investigation, into Russia’s conduct in Ukraine.
“The COI should continue to document such atrocities as long as Russia continues to carry out its war, offering an impartial record of what’s happening and a foundation for international and national attempts to hold criminals accountable,” he said.
“Governments that carry out crimes overseas are also likely to violate human rights at home, and Russia is doing just that.”

Biden Creates the Ultimate Open Border Loophole:
Through a frequently used loophole in President Biden’s much-lauded border controls, economic migrants are sending so many more teenagers and kids into the U.S.
Despite the risk and exploitation detailed in a recent NY Times piece, foreign minors who want to work in the country’s rapidly expanding juvenile workforce have long taken advantage of the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) loophole.
In order to give some legal status to a small number of minors that were trafficked into the country and used as underage prostitutes, the UAC gateway was established in 2008.
The Los Angeles Times gave a sympathetic account of immigrant parents who are currently utilizing the exception to get around Biden’s new regulations.
The migrants attempt to sign up for Biden’s new “parole pathway” on the “CBP” One mobile app before anything else. However, not all immigrants enter through this dubious route, which is offered as a sort of legal bait to discourage immigrants from crossing the border without authorization.
In order to get their children into the country via the UAC pathway, families first utilize the CBP One app to get their parents into the country. The families are later reunited in a city of the parents’ choosing at taxpayer expense.
According to The Los Angeles Times:
“According to advocates, some parents are choosing to leave their kids in [Mexico] with extended family or friends while still attending their CBP visits. Another couple from the tent camp, according to Jeyson [a Venezuelan immigrant], did exactly that, abandoning their five children at the border bridge and entering the United States after only being able to secure two appointments.”
“The separated youngsters came up to a border agent and were taken into custody in the U.S.,” according to Jeyson, a Venezuelan immigrant, who told the newspaper that he witnessed it.
An interview with Priscilla Orta, an attorney with the Lawyers for Good Government advocacy organization, was published on February 21 by MyRGV.com:
“About a dozen people crossed on Monday, according to Orta, but by that point, all of them had already dispatched their children as unaccompanied minors without them.”
According to a February 27 story from Reuters, “Dozens of immigrant families are splitting at Mexico’s northern border,” and “The 15-year-old chose to turn himself in at the border as a UAC since his pregnant mother could only arrange a single appointment.”
The head of the Center for Immigration Studies, Mark Krikorian, “argued that it makes sense because individuals will act on the incentive that Biden provided.”
Along with other unauthorized, authorized, and questionably authorized inflows, Mayorkas permitted 21,600 UACs into the U.S. in December and January. About 75% of the UACs are young adults who are prepared for the workforce.
Before they reach the border with the United States, the Mexican government allegedly intercepts and deports other UACs.
As numerous media outlets highlight the assertions made by business-backed advocacy organizations that Biden’s new border policy is cruel and exclusive, the migrants’ increasing exploitation of the plainly visible UAC loophole coincides with this assertion.

Russia's Wagner Chief Warns of Front line Collapse:
The founder of Russia's Wagner mercenary force has said his troops now tightening their grip on the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut are being deprived of ammunition and that, if they are forced to retreat, the entire front will collapse.
Yevgeny Prigozhin had said on Friday that his units had "practically surrounded Bakhmut," where fighting has intensified in the past week after months of attritional warfare, with Russian forces attacking from three sides.
Wagner often appears to operate autonomously from the regular army, or even in competition with it - and in a video published over the weekend, Prigozhin complained that the ammunition that Moscow had promised it had not been delivered.
"If Wagner retreats from Bakhmut now, the whole front will collapse," Prigozhin said. "The situation will not be sweet for all military formations protecting Russian interests."
Reuters could not independently verify when and where the video was recorded. It was published not on Prigozhin's usual press service Telegram channel, but on one that has associated itself with Wagner and disseminated news about Prigozhin.
On his usual channel, Prigozhin also mentioned the lack of ammunition, saying on Sunday: "For now, we are trying to figure out the reason: Is it just ordinary bureaucracy, or a betrayal?"
Prigozhin regularly criticizes the military hierarchy and last month accused Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and others of "treason" for withholding munitions.
A prominent opponent of Prigozhin's, Russian nationalist ex-rebel commander Igor Girkin, said without citing evidence that the doom-laden video published at the weekend had been recorded at the height of that row, about two weeks ago.
In the nearly four-minute video published on the Wagner Orchestra Telegram channel on Saturday, Prigozhin said his troops were worried that Moscow wanted to set them up as potential scapegoats if Russia lost the war.
"If we retreat, then we will go down in history forever as people who have taken the main step towards losing the war," he said.
"This is exactly the problem with 'ammunition hunger'."
Prigozhin delivered his sometimes repetitive monolog in what appeared to be a bunker, with a dim light casting his heavy shadow on the wall behind him.
He said his troops would wonder whether they were being "set up" for defeat by the top brass or even someone "higher."
Prigozhin has used the war to become a public figure in Russia, and strong signs have emerged in the past month that the Kremlin wants to clip his wings after he began feuding with the defense establishment.
The Defence Ministry said last month it was "absolutely untrue" that Wagner was being starved of ammunition.

PNC Bank reverses decision to cut ties with Donald Trump Jr. connected business:
PNC Financial Services Group Inc. came under attack, and rightfully so, earlier this week after it was revealed that it had abruptly cut ties with a news aggregation company co-founded by Donald Trump Jr.
According to Breitbart, the bank reversed its course just as fast as it had cut the company off in the first place.
"BREAKING: Woke @PNCBank just shut down the bank account for my app @mxmnews without any explanation. The Left doesn't think you should be able to exist, much less thrive, in society. It should be illegal to discriminate based on political affiliation!!!" Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday, sparking massive backlash against the major bank.
"The teller said he was unable to complete the transfers as the account had been closed and balance had been zeroed out. After being told to call a generic help line, I was informed by the PNC representative that per the terms and conditions, PNC reserves the right to re-evaluate their business relationships at any time and terminate accounts without cause," Budowich said, according to Fox News.
He added: "Woke corporations are using their terms and conditions like a guillotine over the head of every conservative entrepreneur."
What was especially frustrating for Budowich and Trump Jr. was the fact that PNC offered nothing in the way of an explanation, simply writing:
"Here’s what happened: Your PNC account has been closed. Enclosed you’ll find a cashier’s check representing the balance of your remaining funds. Here’s what you’ll need to do: Please destroy all unused checks, withdrawal/deposit tickets and any debit card accessing the account."
PNC changed its tune rather quickly, inside 24 hours, calling the situation a "good-faith error," and vowing it had nothing to do with Trump Jr.'s politics or family name.
"Account closures can occur for a variety of reasons but are never influenced by the political views or affiliations of our customers," read a Mar. 3 statement from PNC.
It added: "We’ve looked closely into the circumstances surrounding the closure of the ROCDIGITAL, LLC account and determined it was mistakenly closed due to a good-faith error."
While it can't be proven, it certainly appears to the casual observer that PNC Bank picked the wrong conservative to cancel, and quickly realized the backlash wasn't worth the few minutes of appeasing the radical, Trump Derangement Syndrome-stricken left.

Calvin Robinson is a British political commentator, journalist, policy advisor and campaigner who is a senior fellow at the research institute Policy Exchange. He is a regular contributor to The Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail, and is a presenter on both GB News & talkRADIO. Calvin delivered a superb speech outlining the steps that need to be taken to return the Church of England to God and reverse the wokeness that has engulfed almost all of its top tiers (bishops and much of the clergy). He describes his own personal experience, which culminated recently in the Church of England declining to ordain him into the priesthood. Speech: Returning the Church to God.
