--The Plain Truth-Russia is not the threat people think
But the Bible never indicates the female follower of Jesus was involved in any sexual sin.
What it does say is that she was the first person to see the risen Christ, and that she had previously been possessed by seven demons.
Now, excitement has been growing in recent years in the woman’s ancient hometown of Magdala, Israel, where archaeologists believe they’ve found a first century synagogue, prompting some to wonder whether Jesus Himself visited the building.
“It is likely that people who used this synagogue were witnesses to the multiplication of the loaves and other miracles depicted in the four Gospels,” says a promotional video at MagdalaCenter.com, a project looking to construct a hotel and worship complex in the area.
An excavation team has uncovered 3000-year-old textiles in Israel's Arava Valley, dating back to the era of Kings David and Solomon.The archaeologists from Tel Aviv University found the ancient organic materials preserved within the Timna copper mines, a site which some believe was once linked to King Solomon. These fabrics are the first textiles discovered from the era, and provide new insight on the fashions of the Holy Land. Along with fabric, the team found seeds, leather, and other rare artefacts.
NEW INSIGHT ON ANCIENT SOCIETY
For the first time, archaeologists have uncovered textiles dating back to the reign of Kings David and Solomon.The findings also offer clues about the semi-nomadic Edomites, who were thought to operate the copper mines.Copper was the most valuable resource of the time, according to the research, and required many levels of expertise to produce.It was used to make tools and weapons, and though miners may have been slaves or prisoners, copper smelters would have had a high degree of skill.Such an operation required the transport of goods – including food, water, and textiles – across the desert to operate.Many of the fabrics found at the site were made in specialized workshops far from Timna, the researchers say.Along with the fabrics, the team also recently found thousands of seeds of the Biblical 'Seven Species.'These seeds, from two grains and five fruits, were used to confirm the age of the findings through radiocarbon dating.
The artefacts discovered at the Timna copper mines also offer clues about the early Edomites, a semi-nomadic people who are thought to have operated the mines.This is the first time researchers have had the opportunity to observe textiles from this period, and the fabrics are physical evidence of a complex society.The pieces are tiny, some just 5 x 5 centimetres, but show differences in colour, weaving, and ornamentation techniques.Elaborate fabrics may have been worn by copper craftsmen, who held a highly respected position in society.
'No textiles have ever been found at excavation sites like Jerusalem, Megiddo and Hazor, so this provides a unique window into an entire aspect of life from which we've never had physical evidence before,' said Dr. Erez Ben-Yosef, who led the study. 'We found fragments of textiles that originated from bags, clothing, tents, ropes and cords. The wide variety of fabrics also provides new and important information about the Edomites, who, according to the Bible, warred with the Kingdom of Israel. We found simply woven, elaborately decorated fabrics worn by the upper echelon of their stratified society. Luxury grade fabric adorned the highly skilled, highly respected craftsmen managing the copper furnaces. They were responsible for smelting the copper, which was a very complicated process.'
The research explains that copper was the most valuable resource of the time, and required many levels of expertise to produce.

In defense of Donald Trump: Try to keep this in mind, Donald Trump did not steal your money. Donald Trump did not raise your taxes. Donald Trump did not quadruple the price of food. Trump is not starting a race war. Trump did not leave any US soldiers in Benghazi to be slaughtered and desecrated by Muslims.
Trump did not send the US Navy to fight for Syrian Al-Qaeda. Trump did not arm ISIS and systematically exterminate Christians throughout the Middle East. Trump did not betray Israel. Trump did not provide financing and technology to Iran's nuclear weapons program. Trump did not give our military secrets to China. Trump did not remove our nuclear missile shield in Poland at the behest of Russia.
Trump did not shrivel our military, and betray our veterans. Trump did not cripple our economy. Trump did not increase our debt to 20 trillion dollars. Trump did not ruin our credit, twice. Trump did not double African American unemployment. Trump did not increase welfare to a record level for eight years.
Trump did not sign a law making it legal to execute, and imprison Americans. Trump did not set free many of terrorists in Guantanamo Bay. Trump did not steal your rights, violate US Constitutional law, or commit treason, hundreds of times.
Yet Trump is being ripped apart in the news, non stop. Barrack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton and the criminals occupying our government, are not.
The media is the Democratic Party. Save our culture. Stop listening to them!!

A new CDC study contradicts the Obama administration’s insistence that firearm homicides represent a growing threat, with Americans more likely to die from accidental poisoning or the flu than being shot with a gun.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the report last week but it has received very little press attention. The figures show that there were 33,636 firearms related deaths in 2013, with 21,175 being suicides, 505 “accidental discharges,” and 11,208 being assault related (homicide).
To put this into context, 31,240 people died in accidental falls, meaning that Americans face a bigger threat from tripping in the shower or slipping on ice than they do being shot dead.
Being poisoned (48,545 deaths), alcohol abuse (29,001 deaths), and motor vehicle accidents (33,804 deaths) all pose a greater danger than homicides, many of which are gang related anyway.

In the book of Revelation these two wicked men are called “beasts” (though the 2nd “beast” is often referred to as “the false prophet”). The two upright men are referred to as “the two witnesses” or “the two prophets.” Astonishingly, ALL four of these men will be able to do incredible, mind-blowing miracles! Two of these men (reminiscent of the ancient prophet Elijah) will even be able to call down fire from heaven, while the other two will strike the earth with terrible droughts and plagues.
While two of these men will be led by God’s Holy Spirit and will be servants of God, the other two men will be led by Satan and possessed by demons (and perhaps even possessed by the Devil himself!).
Two of these men will be respected, loved, and honored by earth’s inhabitants, while the other two men will be hated, despised, and cursed. Eventually two of these men will be killed and the world will rejoice and celebrate their demise.
When these Bible prophecies COME ALIVE in the years just ahead, whose side will you be on? Will you be able to discern the two good guys from the two evil ones? Will you know which two are inspired by God and which two are inspired by Satan? Will you be on the right side of history? Hopefully you will, because those who choose wrongly will eventually be thrown into the lake of fire, while those who choose wisely will be granted eternal life in God’s soon-coming glorious kingdom!

Text of the Second Amendment
The Second Amendment, as passed by the House and Senate and later ratified by the States, reads:
- A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
The hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights which hangs in the National Archives had slightly different capitalization and punctuation inserted by William Lambert, the scribe who prepared it. This copy reads:
- A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Both versions are commonly used by "official" U.S. government publications.
Earlier proposals and drafts of the Amendment
- And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms.
- Samuel Adams, (6 February 1788), reported in Charles Hale, Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (1856), p. 86. This language was proposed in the Massachusetts convention for ratification of the U.S. Constitution to be added to Article I of that document.
- The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; a well armed and well regulated militia being the best security of a free country; but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person.
- Original text of what was to become the Second Amendment, as brought to the floor to the first session of the first congress of the U.S. House of Representatives. original text
- A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, being the best security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, but no person religiously scrupulous shall be compelled to bear arms.
- Reworded version of the Second Amendment by the select committee on the Bill of Rights, July 28th 1789. AoC pp. 669).
- A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, being the best security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; but no one religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person.

- Revision voted on in the U.S. Senate, September 4th, 1789.
- A well regulated militia being the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
- Final version passed by the U.S. Senate; the phrase "necessary to" was added when the proposed Amendment was entered into the U.S. House journal.
Forward: Most of our readers already know that The United States, England, Ireland and much of Western Europe are the lost tribes of Israel, and once again here is some more proof:
Scientists have sequenced the first ancient human genomes from Ireland, shedding light on the genesis of Celtic populations.
The genome is the instruction booklet for building a human, comprising three billion paired DNA "letters".
The work shows that early Irish farmers were similar to southern Europeans.
Genetic patterns then changed dramatically in the Bronze Age - as newcomers from the eastern periphery of Europe settled in the Atlantic region.
Details of the work, by geneticists from Trinity College Dublin and archaeologists from Queen's University Belfast are published in the journal PNAS.
Team members sequenced the genomes of a 5,200-year-old female farmer from the Neolithic period and three 4,000-year-old males from the Bronze Age.
Opinion has been divided on whether the great transitions in the British Isles, from a hunting lifestyle to one based on agriculture and later from stone to metal use, were due to local adoption of new ways by indigenous people or attributable to large-scale population movements.
The ancient Irish genomes show unequivocal evidence for mass migration in both cases.
