Show Notes

  • This past weekend, America’s Secretary of State said that Iranian-led forces should leave Iraq. Iraqi and Iranian leaders strongly rebuked him—the latest evidence of the strength of Iran’s presence in Iraq, and the fulfillment of a biblical prophecy the Trumpet highlighted about 26 years ago.
  • Japan just held snap elections, and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe won decisively. It brings Japan closer than ever to revising its pacifist constitution and becoming an independent military powerhouse.
  • Pope Francis is overseeing some interesting political machinations that weaken the power of the bureaucracy of the Holy See—and concentrate more power in the papacy.
  • And finally, I’ll give you three practical ways that you can build more passion in your life.
