A pitiful tugboat carrying asylum seekers, believed to consist of 204 migrants from Sri Lanka, Iran and Iraq, sank off the coast of Indonesia, as it was headed to Australia on Tuesday.

Rescuers are still searching for survivors. Local Police Chief Lt Col Dedy Kusuma said Wednesday that 189 people were rescued and nine bodies were recovered after the tugboat sank Tuesday night about five kilometers (three miles) off the coast of West Java's Cianjur district, reported HuffingtonPost.com.

Their boat was very overloaded, built to carry only 150 passengers, but reportedly sank because of a leak.

This isn't the first time asylum seekers have lost their lives on the perilous journey out of Sri Lanka, Iran and Iraq. More than 15,000 asylum seekers have arrived in Australia by boat this year, but some do not survive the journey.

What is it about Sri Lanka, Iran and Iraq that would cause these 204 people, as well as many others every year, to risk their very lives at sea to get away from these countries?

The problems are very obvious in Iraq and Iran. Iran holds a Muslim population of 99 percent. Iraq reportedly has a 97 percent Muslim population, with the other three percent Christians and other religions. Heads roll, limbs are amputated and women are stoned to death in their public squares on Fridays for nothing more than a civil offense, or a family argument. This is the crux of Sharia law in those countries. Anyone should be able to see why people would want to flee those nations.

Albeit the dominant religion in Sri Lanka appears to be Buddhism (~70 percent), it is a fact that thugs and rogue leaders are now in charge of Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan refugees who try to escape, but are deported back there, are tortured and detained. The Sri Lanka Guardian (London) reported on June 16, 2013 (excerpts):

Once called a paradise, Sri Lanka is now hell on earth on all fronts for even the majority Sinhalese. The guardians of the law have themselves become murderers, hooligans, as is now exposed in that DIG (Deputy Inspector General) of Police Vass Gunawardene. More worms in the police force are coming out of the woodworks, but they are under state protection and state complicity, which makes the whole saga a conundrum...Even former Vice Chancellor of Colombo University who was once held in high esteem - Foreign Minister Professor GL Peiris - has descended to his lowest level, fast losing his credibility and trumpeting the government's propaganda of winning the war, and painting over its war crimes with progress and economic development. He does not cut much ice with the international community, his Rhodes fellowship and camaraderie with Hillary Clinton notwithstanding.

Did we catch a familiar name to the US up there? Yes, we did, and there is a reason. The description of Sri Lanka above will soon be America, unless God intervenes in our behalf to delay it, until He comes for His people.

With George W Bush's North American Union (merger of Canada, US and Mexico), and Barack Obama's National Defense Authorization Act (his self-given right, which is illegal, to arrest and detain US citizens indefinitely without a trial) and illegal drone killings without due process, is just the beginning, friends, unless God puts a stop to it. There is much more, but not enough time and space to address those issues in this post today, although I will say that anyone who seriously threatens the plans of the elite bankers, namely the Federal Reserve bankers, or our rogue president, such as Mark Pittman and Andrew Brietbart did, will end up dead.

It is tragic, but our once free and prosperous nation will also succumb to a “hell on earth” with the rest of the world, according to Bible prophecy, because of the evil that is prevalent in the world. Here in the US alone more than 3,000 unborn babies are killed each day, about 1,350,500 a year! I won’t even start on the other atrocities committed by the people of this nation and the world.

If you hold this nation and your liberties dear, which tens of thousands of our forefather's spilled their blood to protect, you will join (at no cost) and support the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association at CSPOA.org. Sheriffs and police officers across the nation are coming together to declare that they will not enforce laws which violate our Constitution or Bill of Rights, yes, even against federal agents who might attempt to violate the US Constitution.

This is no joke, friends. With the globalist movement by the Bilderbergers, elite bankers and Obama's Socialist administration, even law enforcement officials are coming together to stand up against the executive orders signed by Obama, which violate our Constitutional rights. Please join through the link above. America’s decline, with the rest of the world, is inevitable, but we should hold it off as long as we can, for Jesus said, “occupy till I come” Luke 19:13.

Much of the world is in chaos, with bankrupt nations and cities all over the world and the pathetic estate of our own country, and our only hope is in salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Word of God tells us that a global dictatorship will arise and the antichrist will even regulate who can buy or sell. The plan for this governance is formulating very quickly now and those with spiritual eyes to see are able to realize this. The Bible says,

“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, bond and free, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads, that no man might buy or sell, save he who had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man and his number is six hundred, sixty-six” Revelation 13:16-18.

Have you received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and are you prepared to leave this world, before the wrath of God is poured out upon the nations (Revelation 14:19)? God will gather up His elect before that time comes, and it will be sooner than later (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18). If you aren’t saved, please visit the How Can I Be Saved page of this website. Your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
