Russia and China supplying attack aircrafts to Myanmar military

A new report from the United Nations indicates that both Russia and China have continued to supply Myanmar’s military junta with weapons to continue their assault on their political opposition and civilians, reports International Christian Concern.

Thomas Andrews, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on Myanmar Human Rights, released a report on Tuesday which revealed that Russia, China, and Serbia have continued to supply arms to the Myanmar junta, even after it began a violent crackdown on its political opposition. The report indicates that both China and Russia have supplied attack aircrafts following the Myanmar military coup in February 2021.

Airstrikes have affected a substantial number of civilians in Myanmar, including many Christian groups caught in the violence.  Andrews alleges that the nations supplying arms to the junta do so with “full knowledge that they would be used to attack civilians.”

No doubt the Christians of Myanmar echo the question of David found in Psalm 10:1-2. “Why, O Lord, do you stand far away? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? In arrogance, the wicked hotly pursue the poor; let them be caught in the schemes that they have devised.”

Putin’s wants Ukraine and other Soviet-bloc countries

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s justification for seizing additional territory from Ukraine signals his long-term desire to subjugate other Central and Eastern European countries, including current members of NATO, according to U.S. and European officials, reports the Washington Examiner.

Germany’s Reinhard Bütikofer, a senior member of the European Parliament, said, “The reasoning that Putin has presented, when he published his demands to NATO and to the United States earlier this year, this reasoning is signaling that his ambition goes way beyond Ukraine. His ambition includes the zeal to establish security dominance of Russia over all of the countries that used to belong to the Soviet bloc.”

In a joint press conference with the Ukrainian foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken agreed

BLINKEN: “It’s very clear, what we’ve seen in the last 24 hours, that this has never been about Ukraine and NATO, per se. What President Putin has made clear is that this is about the total subjugation of Ukraine to Russia. It’s about reconstituting the Russian Empire or, short of that, a sphere of influence, or short of that, the total neutrality of countries surrounding Russia.”

38,000 truckers are headed to Biden’s State of Union Address

A massive Freedom Convoy of 38,000 truckers is heading from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. in time for President Biden’s State of the Union address on March 1st, reports Breitbart.

The peaceful convoy will be composed of trucks and motorcycles and does not intend to gather at the Capitol. Instead, the convoy will protest near the White House and the National Mall with Christian bands and preachers.

Kyle Sefcik, the organizer of the Freedom Convoy USA 2022, explained his goal in a direct appeal to President Joe Biden.

SEFCIK: “Mr. President, we are coming peacefully. And we’re going to  do this lawfully and constitutionally. I’m coming to you as a father, a small business owner, who’s unaffiliated to any parties. We just want government overreach to end.

“On behalf of Freedom Convoy USA 2022, we are asking you to end the state of emergency and the mandates once and for all. Sir, the world is watching us because they know that if what’s happening in Canada happens to us here, in the land of the free, then freedom as we know it, is gone.”

TX A.G.: Trans surgeries, puberty blockers for minors is “child abuse”

Last Friday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton declared that performing gender reassignment” procedures on children constitutes child abuse under state law.

Such procedures and treatments include castration, the removal of healthy body parts as well as the prescription of puberty-blocking drugs.

Paxton said, “Because children are legally incompetent to consent to sterilization, procedures and treatments that result in a child’s sterilization are unauthorized and infringe on the child’s fundamental right to procreate.”

Steve Farrar, men’s ministry leader, died

And finally, Steve Farrar, founder of Men’s Leadership Ministries and Associate Pastor of the Men’s Ministry at Stonebriar Community Church where Chuck Swindoll is the senior pastor, died late Saturday evening at his home outside Dallas. He was 72.

He regularly addressed men at churches and events across North America, including Promise Keepers in the 1990s.

You can watch one of his last messages entitled, “When You Get Blown Off Course.” And check out his rock-solid books.

Psalm 116:15 says, “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.”
