 August 2 - California Church to Build Brewery, Drink Beer During Services
 Article: Ecumenical Movement - Miscellaneous

Comment from UTT:
A church in Santa Cruz, California is looking for a way to expand its congregation by opening the doors for beer drinking during services. This is not the first church to do this and it will certainly not be the last as the ecumenical movement not only allows for all faiths but all ideas that contradict biblical Christianity.
A California church sold their church building and relocated in a new space where beer is served and plans are underway to build a brewery where church services can occur. "We decided to sell the building, because for us a church is a community and a movement," pastor Chris VanHall, who leads The Greater Purpose Community Church in Santa Cruz, California, told the NBC affiliate in the Bay Area last week.

VanHall's church community ended up in a food lounge complete with several beer options, a move that reportedly gained them new followers. He added: "There's nothing in the Bible that says you can't drink alcohol in a responsible manner."

 August 3 - Trump staffs up Mideast team for peace plan rollout
 Article: Israel And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
While there have been various attempts to establish a peace plan in the middle east along with the one that Donald Trump and his team are planning, the Bible states there will never be true peace in Israel until Jesus, the Prince of Peace intervenes.
U.S. officials say the Trump administration is staffing up a Middle East policy team at the White House in anticipation of unveiling its long awaited but largely mysterious Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.

The creation of a White House team is the first evidence in months that a plan is advancing. Although Trump officials have long promised the most comprehensive package ever put forward toward resolving the conflict, the emerging plan has not been described with even a small amount of detail by Kushner, Greenblatt or any other official.

 August 1 - 22 volcanoes actively erupting, 43 volcanoes with ongoing eruptions: We are in a period of high volcanic activity
 Article: Signs Of The Last Times

Comment from UTT:
Volcanic activity is happening world wide indicating that major geological activity may occur in the future causing major catastrophic events

Although detailed statistics are not kept on daily activity, generally there are around 20 volcanoes actively erupting at any particular time. Last week, the Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report (WVAR) reported 22 actively erupting volcanoes and 43 continuous erupting volcanoes. We are in a phase of increased volcanic activity. Overall there are 43 volcanoes with ongoing eruptions as of the Stop Dates indicated (July 24, 2018), sorted with the most recently started eruption at the top. (SEE CHART IN THE ARTICLE)

An eruption marked as "continuing" does not always mean that the activity is continuous or happening today, but that there have been at least some intermittent eruptive events at that volcano without a break of at least 3 months since it started. An eruption listed here also might have ended since the last public data update, or at the update time a firm end date had not yet been determined due to potential renewed activity..
