River in Russia Mysteriously Turns Blood Red

Startled residents of a Russian city inside the Arctic Circle have been posting photos of a local river that has mysteriously turned blood red.

Photos published on Russian social media appear to the show the Daldykan River near the city of Norilsk flowing crimson. Russian authorities have yet to establish a reason for the river’s unusual appearance, but local people quickly linked it to a giant metals plant upstream. Russia’s Environment Ministry said it was investigating the plant as the likely cause.


Temple Service Could Be One Week Away as Sanhedrin Appoints High Priest

A significant step was recently taken towards reinstating the Temple service when the nascent Sanhedrin selected Rabbi Baruch Kahane as the next Kohen Gadol (high priest). The selection was made as a precaution for Yom Kippur. If the political conditions should change, allowing the Jews access to the Temple Mount, they will be required by Torah law to bring the sacrifices. Rabbi Kahane is confident that if that should happen, Temple service could begin in less than one week.


Bible prophecy being fulfilled: Dead Sea coming back to life; fish seen swimming on the shores

In a fulfilment of a Bible prophecy, what is dead is coming back to life!

Since ancient times, the Dead Sea, a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and Palestine to the west, has exactly been what its name says: dead. No sea or plant life can survive the lake’s hyper-saline environment—it’s nearly 10 times saltier than the ocean—or so scientists have previously thought.


Russia to defend all Christians of the world

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov claimed about preparation of the second conference on defense of Christians in the world.
‘Apart from demonstrating personal example on how important, as we believe, is to build relations among various religions, it is necessary to carry out special events. To tell the truth, today Christians are subject to very serious persecutions in the Middle East and first of all in Syria and Iraq. Their numbers in these countries have drastically dropped,’ the Minister noted.


Newly restored frescoes prove early Christian church had women priests, outlaw Catholic group says

ROME — The Vatican unveiled newly restored frescoes in the Catacombs of Priscilla in Rome Tuesday — and ignited controversy over whether the early Christian church had women priests.

The catacombs feature two scenes said by proponents of the women’s ordination movement to show women priests: One in the ochre-hued Greek Chapel features a group of women celebrating a banquet, said to be the banquet of the Eucharist. Another fresco in a richly decorated burial chamber features a woman, dressed in a dalmatic — a cassock-like robe — with her hands up in the position used by priests for public worship.
