  1. I always love this person Palki Sharma she really is energetic and report the story with all intresting facts.Great work WION news.

  2. As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. And you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. Then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will rise and will deceive many. Because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:3‭-14 MEV

    (Obs: From the beginning of the tribulation to the end there are 7 years. Near the end, the gospel will be preached to the whole world, which would be impossible without technology of global communication.)

    When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you know that its desolation has drawn near. Luke 21:20 MEV

    So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place,(…) Matthew 24:15 MEV

    “His armies shall rise up and desecrate the sanctuary fortress. They shall abolish the daily sacrifice and set up the abomination that makes desolate.” Daniel 11:31 MEV

    “From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.” Daniel 12:11 MEV

    (Obs: These events will take place after the construction of the third temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.)

    (…)then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. Let him who is in the field not return to take his clothes. Woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse in those days! Pray that your escape will not be in the winter or on the Sabbath. For then will be great tribulation, such as has not happened since the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be. Unless those days were shortened, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:16‭-22 MEV

    There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth. For the powers of heaven will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 MEV

    (Obs: In the age of technology, men know what is happening on the inhabited earth, no longer are they limited by local information.)

    Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. Matthew 24:29‭-31 MEV

    (Obs: This is the sixth seal of the book of Revelation, pay much attention here, for the signs of the sixth seal >match< the signs of Matthew 24:29-30, the sixth seal is when the rapture happens; before the great tribulation, before the seven trumpets.)

    When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 MEV

    Because you have kept My word of patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon the entire world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture before the time of temptation, which will be the government of the antichrist during the great tribulation.)

    For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:38‭-‬39 MEV

    (Obs: People will not be eating and drinking and marrying during the great tribulation, therefore, rapture will happen before the great tribulation, when people are still distracted.)

    When they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 MEV

    (Obs: Sudden destruction near the rapture.)

    For the mystery of lawlessness is already working. Only He who is now restraining him will do so until He is taken out of the way. Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth, and destroy with the brightness of His presence, 2 Thessalonians 2:7 MEV

    (Obs: Who is restraining the antichrist from revealing himself? Who is stopping the antichrist from rising? The sons of God! When the elect are raptured, the antichrist will be free to take over. Rapture will trigger the great tribulation and the government of the antichrist.)

    Two will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and the other left. Matthew 24:40‭-41 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    Know this first, that there shall come scoffers in the last days who walk after their own lusts, and say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were since the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3‭-4 MEV

    (Obs: Apostasy of the last days, when more and more men are denying God and going after their own sinful desires.)

    But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat. The earth also and the works that are in it will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: The destructions that will happen near the rapture, just as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah; the righteous is rescued and the judgements are poured upon the wicked, and “like a thief in the night” means it will happen when you do not expect, “heavens will pass away” means the sky will vanish as a scroll that is being rolled up, which is mentioned in Revelation 6:14.)

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 MEV

    (Obs: People around the world have been hearing trumpets from the sky in different times, it has been happening for a few years. When the last trumpet sound, the redeemed will be rescued and the great tribulation will begin.)

    He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16‭-17 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, no one will be able to buy or sell without a mark from the government/beast of the antichrist, which will take place during the great tribulation, which is at the door.)

    But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase. Daniel 12:4 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, many people travel to many places and knowledge is increased.)

    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 MEV

    Behold the Lord of lords is coming soon, repent now of all your sins — keep away from all sins — and abide in the only Savior and Lord Jesus the Christ (Yeshua, the Messiah) with all your heart, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

  3. It means corruption is rife, how can this be when the people have spoken. Its clear that the votes are falsified just like covid numbers.

  4. Current Petrol & Diesel prices in Chinalanka is Still Lower than India…

    1 Indian Rupee = 4 Srilankan Rupee..

    So calculate the real price..

    We Indians are paying 45-55 rupees as tax to the States and central government

  5. The people of SL are to be blamed for this crisis. As they say – people get the government they deserve.

  6. The parliment here is just one big family of uneducated nitwits. The opposition nominated a new deputy speaker, and then the opposition voted for the Rajapaksa's lapdog speaker.

  7. India should stop wasting indian tax payers money on srilanka.
    Rajapakses is like cancer to srilanka and it has spread beyond control.

  8. Sri Lankans hate us. That's why they voted for Rajapakshas I guess. Now they're paying huge price. But it's time for us to show humanity by helping them to realise we are with them.

  9. The only reason they have popularity in parliament is because all are their bandwagon of crooks. This is a classic example of why people are calling for ALL to go home as none can be trusted. They say one thing to the public but act quite differently elsewhere. Why did the deputy speak resign only to be re-elected. No wonder SL is in bankruptcy – it is money wasted on idiotic exercises like these. People work hard and bringing in foreign earning and produce good for exports – only to have that money spent on keeping these buffoons in their pampered lives. All protests and who is suffering today – the people? The Parliamentarians don't care – they have all the comforts of life. They ensure they are first provided for, and then the people. It is a disgraceful situation and is this what Buddhism stands for???

  10. I love Palki – I only watch WION when she in presenting the news. She has the facts and doesn't mince her words. She also keeps it simple. thank you. She seems compassionate for SL and is not a fan of China (cant blame her)

  11. A lesson for everyone before selecting government's must check their interest, intention, background and most importantly its one family members orientated.

  12. Sri lanken public got this much problem but stil rajapaksha family need rule the country

  13. This is the curse of the innocent Tamils murdered by the Srilankan army during 2009, the rest of the world should think twice before committing any Human Rights violations against any minority.

  14. The best finance minister that Sri Lanka has ever produced says he is not an expert in the field. If Sri Lanka bounced back from the crisis, this finance minister is going to as one of the greatest politicians in Sri Lankan history books. He trying to do the unthinkable.

  15. The problem in the Sri Lanka parliament is there are so many MPs who were elected by the people but are mightily scared to vote against the Rajapakshas – some of the R' loyalists claim they are against the R's but when it comes to voting they stick by and let the people down. The only solution for this ongoing struggle to defeat the R's is to have fresh elections but there's little push for that pathway.

  16. Sri Lanka doesn't have a democracy. It's a dictatorship by Jayafackser family. They rewrite the constitution.

  17. Srilanka can one day part of India.Then the people will progress with all supports from motherland India and Indians.

  18. Minimaru rajapakshe anduve ghathakayan weda Patan ganiy
    Rajapakshes now start killing innocent peaceful protestors by using their igp ssp digs they create violence kill people to stay in power after bankrupted the country after stole every red scentbof the county .
    Go home rajapakshes
    Go home pohottu government
    Go home all corrupted mps

  19. Soon a loaf of bread will cost a days wages (see Revelation 6.6).

    We are living in the E N D times, the 7year Tribulation with the Antichrist is right around the corner, that's GOD'S judgement upon all unbelievers! But there is hope – get saved and be rapture ready: accept JESUS CHRIST as your Lord and Savior today!!!

    Please study biblical end times prophecy; listen to Dr. Ron Rhodes on end times chronology.

    Blessings from AB

  20. Sri Lanka definitely need Russian oil And gas and Chinese economic aid / assistance at this moment yes we must definitely thankful and grateful to our Indian friends for there timely assistance to our country but I think that's not definitely enough so we must surely ask and take / get other friendly countries economic and financial assistance to sri Lanka specially we must reach out to Russia and China as well as Japan south Korea Indonesia Bangladesh Malaysia Iran turkey as well as south American countries like Venezuela ( for getting fuel assistance) like countries etc etc too cos sometimes we have to wait some considerable time period to get the approval or the green light to get economic assistance from international financial institutions and organisation's like the IMF the world bank the Asian development bank etc etc so we definitely need to reach other friendly nation's for their county's assistance and support to overcome the current economic and financial crisis in sri Lanka…
