Brazil falls to the “pink tide”
What some have called the last major battle for freedom in the Western Hemisphere, has been lost to socialism.
The socialist candidate in the Brazilian presidential race, Luiz Lula, won the election against Jair Bolsonaro over the weekend by 1.8% of the vote, reports NBC News. This consolidates the rise of the “pink tide” of communism and socialism in South America — now including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela.
Not to mention the United States under Biden, and Canada under Trudeau.
In the providence of God, only Paraguay, Uruguay, and Ecuador are reputedly exempt from the pink wave, as of this day.

Hollywood’s income still 50% of 2019
Hollywood’s box office receipts this year are still about 50% off of where they had been in 2019.
However, the Satanic genre dominates in the box office today. The nation’s movie theaters handled 5-6 films on the themes of witchcraft and horror. These films netted 70% of total box office receipts over the weekend. That compares to just 12% given over to horror on the same week a year ago.
While 87% of Americans celebrated skeletons, witches, demons, and the Day of the Dead yesterday, Christians celebrated Reformation Day. It was the 505th anniversary of Martin Luther’s nailing the 95 theses on the Wittenberg Church Door in Germany.
2 Kings 17:35-36 speaks of fear in these words: “You shall not fear other gods … but the Lord, who brought you up from the land of Egypt with great power and an outstretched arm, Him you shall fear, Him you shall worship.”
Christian coach in Washington state allowed to publicly pray
After a long, drawn-out battle, the Supreme Court ruled that Coach Joe Kennedy, who prayed at the 50-yard line after football games, was wrongly fired in 2015 from Bremerton High in Washington State.
Thankfully, he will be back on the job by March 15, 2023, reports The Epoch Times.
The agreement stated that, “Bremerton School District shall not interfere with or prohibit Kennedy from offering a prayer consistent with the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion.”
Jerry Lee Lewis worried about Hell
The Rock and Roller, Jerry Lee Lewis, is dead at 87 years of age.
Vulture.com called him the last man standing from the birth of Rock and Roll, as well as “a thief, a bigamist, an adulterer, a sexual predator, and a family abandoner.”
While still in his teens, Lewis enrolled in Southwestern Bible Institute in Texas. He was married seven times and divorced four times.
Seven years before he died, Lewis confessed to a reporter for The Guardian, “I was always worried whether I was going to Heaven or Hell. I still am. I worry about it before I go to bed; it’s a very serious situation. I mean you worry, when you breathe your last breath, where are you going to go?”
Towards the end of the interview, Lewis said, “Just about as many hours as there are in the day, I pray. I pray all the time. . . I’m not too much on fear. Well, I love God, I love Jesus Christ, and I worship the precious, precious, precious Holy Ghost.”
The Apostle Paul said, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. For this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on Him to life everlasting.” (1 Timothy 1:15-16)
