On Capitol Hill This Week Volume XVI, Number 36
November 30 - December 4, 2009

Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!" (Rev. 5:11,12)

News in Congress



The Senate's Thanksgiving break will end with a bang Monday when debate is scheduled to begin on sweeping legislation to remake the U.S. health care system, a showdown likely to last for weeks. The debate on the Senate's version of the legislation will test the strength of a re-energized Republican insurgency and the loyalty of a fractured Democratic majority. . . Senators will take up the 2,074-page bill that is estimated to cost $848 billion over 10 years, offering amendments aimed at improving it. The Democrats' bill is intended to extend coverage over six years to an estimated 31 million Americans who lack insurance. The most contentious issues expected to be debated are abortion, illegal immigration and the so- called public option, a government-run insurance plan -- each of which threaten to stall the legislation.

Republicans are largely opposed to the bill and the Democratic majority is sharply divided on the issues. Bridging that divide will likely prove to be the toughest challenge for Democratic leaders. (Fox News)

- As Big Brother strives to get into our bank accounts, our doctor visits and decisions, dealing a death blow to our economy and life as we know it in the process, continue to beseech the Creator of all things for deeper revelation and prayer initiatives to stop this, the worst piece of legislation known to America. Ask for divine guidance for the American people to personally realize and address this stealth robbing of the future generations. Pray for the youth to awaken, for pride to melt away, and for all to rise up and begin to sound the alarm for their future, before it's too late. Intercede to our God, Who is still a consuming fire for us.

- "The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with hewn stones; the sycamores are all cut down, but we will replace them with cedars." (Isaiah 9:10)


United States congressional confirmation hearings over the appointment of Ben Bernanke for another four-year term as chairman of the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System - his current term ends on January 31 - are set for December 3. Now the Congress' must exercise its constitutional prerogatives and hold meaningful hearings before reaching a decision.

President Barack Obama nominated Bernanke for another term earlier this year, well ahead of schedule, ostensibly to "calm" the markets. In doing so, Obama broke his often-quoted campaign promise for "change" - in this case for a clear break from the George W Bush era's economic and financial policies. Bernanke was the chairman of the Counsel of Economic Advisors during the Bush administration and was a Bush appointee as the chairman of the Fed. He was also one of the main architects of the Bush administration's financial and economic policies. As a Fed governor, and later as Fed chairman, Bernanke engineered about the most expansionary episode of monetary policy in US history, rejecting calls for restraint when unprecedented speculation in housing and out of control financial speculation were underway.

His policies turned out to be devastating for the US economy and for the banking system, and they brought to a screeching halt two decades of prosperity, replacing them with a dramatic fall in real incomes, mass unemployment, millions of foreclosures, and continuing economic despair for millions of Americans.

Most ironic, Obama has lauded chairman Bernanke for his track-record: "As an expert on the causes of the Great Depression, I'm sure Ben never imagined that he would be part of a team responsible for preventing another. But because of his background, his temperament, his courage, and his creativity, that's exactly what he has helped to achieve. And that is why I am re-appointing him to another term as chairman of the Federal Reserve.

That Bernanke did not imagine in 2002-2007 he would be part of the team responsible for preventing another Great Depression should be of concern for Americans - having the most important financial institution headed by someone who cannot foresee the consequences of his policies! (Asia Times)

- Pray for Congress to debate honestly the re- appointment of Bernanke as head of the Federal Reserve Board. Ask the Lord to send in the person whom He chooses for this position, one that was secretly imposed on the American people several decades ago. Will the debate come up for views on Dec. 3rd, since the Congress is full of debate on the healthcare resolutions? Pray that no clandestine votes occur.

- "If a man delivers to his neighbor money or articles to keep, and it is stolen out of the man's house, if the thief is found, he shall pay double." ( Exodus 22:7)


Opposes the Transfer of Terrorists to the United States

Congressman Forbes signed a discharge petition to force H.R. 2294, the Keep Terrorists Out of America Act, out of committee and onto the floor for a vote. If the required 218 signatures are collected, the House of Representatives would be forced to vote on stopping the transfer or release of detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility into the United States.

- Thank the Lord that He will move upon the hearts of at least 218 members of Congress to sign this dischage petition, and then to pass this bill when it comes to the floor for a vote. Thank Him, too, that He will move upon the heart of our sitting "king" to do the right thing and to sign this act into LAW. Amen.

- "The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes." (Prov 21:1)


H.R. 1343: "First Responders Fighting Terrorism Protection Act of 2009"

H.R.1343 grants qualified immunity from civil liability for a first responder who: (1) takes reasonable action to prevent an act of terrorism; or (2) observes or receives a report of, and takes reasonable action to respond to, any suspicious transaction, activity, or occurrence that indicates that an individual may be engaging, or preparing to engage, in a violation of law relating to a terrorist act. Makes a first responder not entitled to assert the defense of qualified immunity nevertheless immune from civil liability under federal, state, and local law if such responder acted in good faith and on objectively reasonable suspicion. Entitles a first responder found to be immune from liability under this Act to recover from the plaintiff all reasonable costs and attorney fees.

S 449: "Free Speech Protection Act of 2009"

S. 449 allows any U.S. person against whom a lawsuit for defamation is brought in a foreign country for defamation on the basis of the content of any speech by that person that has been published, uttered, or otherwise disseminated in the United States to bring an action in a U.S. district court against any person who, or entity which, brought the suit, if: (1) the speech at issue in the foreign lawsuit does not constitute defamation under U.S. law; and (2) the person or entity which brought the foreign lawsuit serves or causes to be served any documents in connection with such foreign lawsuit on a U.S. person. Allows the award of treble damages if it is determined by a preponderance of the evidence that the person or entity bringing the foreign lawsuit intentionally engaged in a scheme to suppress rights under the First Amendment to the Constitution by discouraging publishers or other media from publishing, or by discouraging financial supporters from employing, retaining, or supporting the research, writing, or other speech of an individual.

- As above, ask our Lord to move on the hearts of the members of Congress to help secure our nation from domestic terrorism by passing both bills. The first bill (H.R. 1343) is sponsored by Rep. Susan Myrick, and the second one (S. 449) is sponsored by Sen. Arlen Specter. Pray they be granted strength and wisdom as they fight on the floor of the House to see these measures passed. Amen.

- "I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies." (2 Samuel 22:4)


Although a vote on "climate change" legislation is being pushed into 2010, a leading think tank is warning people to be alert. Prospects are looking dim for cap- and-trade legislation in 2009. In conjunction, America's failure to pass the legislation is having a negative effect on the upcoming Copenhagen climate treaty talks. But Ben Lieberman of The Heritage Foundation warns concerned citizens that the fight is not over.

"Those of us who are concerned about the global- warming legislation as it currently stands need to constantly be vigilant," he urges. "But it does look like things are being pushed into 2010. Reality is just sort of intruding on this parade -- the economic reality [is] that this is going to be very burdensome in the midst of recession [and] the scientific reality furthered by evidence of e-mails coming out, showing that the science behind this may actually be fraudulent. So it may be all cost for no real benefit in terms of actually reducing a real problem, so the wheels are really coming off the cart on this issue."

The e-mails Lieberman is referring to were allegedly leaked from the U.K.-based Hadley Center that is responsible for ground temperature readings from which NASA's satellites are calibrated. He says the e-mails prove that the temperature data was forged in order to show the results they wanted. Criminal charges are being pursued in the matter. (OneNewsNow)

- Praise the Lord for exposing the truth about this global- warming issue. But we must always be vigilant to the fact the true-believers in this deception do not push through Congressional resolutions with votes that are secretly held. The Lord controls the weather, and we offer praise for His beneficence. Ask the Lord to mire down in details those who would push their faulty thinking on Americans.

- " . . . and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock." (Matthew 7:25)

News at the White House



Michelle and I would like to send our best wishes to all those performing Hajj this year, and to Muslims in America and around the world who are celebrating Eid- ul-Adha. The rituals of Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha both serve as reminders of the shared Abrahamic roots of three of the world's major religions.

During Hajj, the world's largest and most diverse gathering, three million Muslims from all walks of life - including thousands of American Muslims - will stand in prayer on Mount Arafat. The following day, Muslims around the world will celebrate Eid-ul-Adha and distribute food to the less fortunate to commemorate Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son out of obedience to God.

This year, I am pleased that the Department of Health and Human Services has partnered with the Saudi Health Ministry to prevent and limit the spread of H1N1 during Hajj. Cooperating on combating H1N1 is one of the ways we are implementing my administration's commitment to partnership in areas of mutual interest.

On behalf of the American people, we would like to extend our greetings during this Hajj season - Eid Mubarak. (Breitbart) Read more

- This report pretty much speaks for itself. Let's continue in prayer for this president. Our nation is not a Moslem nation, but one founded upon Judeo-Christian principles. May our Lord lift the spirit of confusion off the mind of Barack Hussein Obama, setting him free to worship Him in spirit, and in truth. Amen.

- While Moslems worldwide make this annual pilgrimage to the black rock -- the Ka'bah -- at Mecca, fulfilling one of the five pillars of Islam, pray that this Word will be quickened in their souls:

"You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth. . . For their rock is not like our Rock, as even our enemies concede." (Deuteronomy 32:18,31)


(Tuesday speech expected to outline "escalation and exit." The White House and Pentagon estimate a cost of up to $1 million per soldier per year for deployment in Afghanistan.)

President Barack Obama vowed yesterday to "finish the job" of an unpopular and costly eight-year war in Afghanistan, and officials said he could announce an increase of around 30,000 troops. A 40-minute prime- time address to the nation has been tentatively scheduled for Tuesday evening.

The speech will end weeks of speculation about his plans for the way forward in Afghanistan, after a three- month strategic review and eight meetings with his White House War Council. He has been accused of demonstrating weakness and dithering. Americans are divided and deeply worried about rising levels of government spending, debt and federal control of institutions. [Reported by: Intercessors for America]

- Ask the Lord to send His angels to keep our troops safe by supernatural means while deployed overseas, until we can either add to their numbers or bring them home. When man's plans fail, God is always there.

- "I will never leave you nor forsake you." (Hebrews 13:5)


Lauded Iranian nuclear program as 'deterrent' against Israel, Bush

The Obama administration's withdrawn nominee for a top intelligence post delivered a speech to a pro-Arab U.S. group in which he claimed that Israel has long assassinated peace-loving Palestinian leaders. He also falsely accused the Jewish state - which doesn't publicly comment on its alleged nuclear weapons program - of threatening to nuke Iran. Charles "Chas" Freeman, the U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War, used the speech to suggest that America was attacked on 9/11 largely due to its support for Israel. He further stated that if the White House attempts to pressure Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's "American lobby" will arrange for Congress to punish President Obama.

Freeman was slated to head the National Intelligence Council but withdrew his nomination in March . . . On Oct. 16, Freeman delivered a speech to the 18th Annual Arab-U.S.Policymakers Conference run by the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations, which defines itself as a nongovernmental organization dedicated to "improving American knowledge and understanding of the Arab world." During this speech, Freeman referred to the government here as "Israeli occupation authorities" and claimed an "Israeli cabinet-directed assassination campaign has long focused on ensuring that there is no one to talk to on the Palestinian side." He slammed the State Department's labeling of Hamas as a terrorist organization. The radical Palestinian group's charter calls for the murder of Jews and destruction of Israel. Hamas is responsible for scores of suicide bombings, shootings and rocket attacks against Jewish civilian population centers.

Freeman claimed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict began as a problem between "Jewish colonists and indigenous Arabs" even though Jews had historically lived in the territory that became modern-day Israel for thousands of years, while many Palestinian Arabs arrived originally as migrant workers when the Jewish population started to increase in 1881. He then claimed the current Netanyahu government of Israel "rejects trading land for peace" even though the Israeli leader has multiple times called for the renewal of negotiations with the Palestinians. (WorldNetDaily) Read more.

- Seemingly, the only "free" aspect about Chas is his last name! Pray that any influence that he might yet have on the president would be of no effect. Pray that Charles Freeman has a dramatic encounter with Jesus Christ, so that the Holy Spirit can cleanse his mind of all the lies he is proclaiming to whoever will listen. Pray for Jesus to free this man from the anti-Semitism that clouds his mind. The shackles of deception bind him.

- "His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, And he is caught in the cords of his sin." (Proverbs 5:22) "Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst." (I Timothy 1:15)


By now, millions of Americans are familiar with Anita Dunn, who recently resigned her post as Barack Obama's White House Communications Director after it was learned that she had previously cited Mao Zedong, the late Communist dictator and mass murderer, as one of her "favorite political philosophers."

By contrast, few people know anything substantive about Dunn's husband, Robert Bauer, who has replaced Gregory Craig as President Obama's White House Counsel. Craig resigned abruptly on November 13. In 2009 Obama hired Bauer as legal counsel to represent him in a criminal probe investigating whether former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich may have sought - with Obama's (or Rahm Emanuel's) knowledge - to sell to the highest bidder the U.S. Senate seat Obama had vacated when he assumed the presidency.

What does all this have to do with Robert Bauer's current, and sudden, ascendancy to the position of White House Counsel?

According to The American Spectator, "[Bauer] knows where all the bodies are buried, and this indicates that there is something amiss with this White House. You don't just make these kinds of changes [Bauer's appointment as Gregory Craig's replacement] with at least three legislative and policy decisions looming that the Counsel's office would have been deeply involved in." A Washington attorney (who has served as counsel in the Senate and in previous presidential administrations) characterizes Bauer's sudden appointment as "pretty ___ weird" and stated, "For the first time ever, we have a President's personal attorney also serving as White House counsel. I don't care if Bob [Bauer] recuses himself from future personal legal business, this should be troubling to anyone who cares about the Executive Office of the President." (Front Page Magazine)

- Robert Bauer is not the man to be chosen as White House counsel, as his record of activities and positions prove. Pray for honesty in the White House, as the Lord does a vigorous housecleaning. Do not be overwhelmed by all the negatives swirling around Obama, for we have the authority in Jesus Christ over all the deceiving spirits. Call on the Lord to set both Anita Dunn and her husband free from arrogance and ambitions that have led them to deception.

". . .and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved." ( 2 Thessalonians 2:10)


President Obama has shattered the budget record for first-year presidents -- spending nearly double what his predecessor did when he came into office and far exceeding the first-year tabs for any other U.S. president in history.

In fiscal 2009 the federal government spent $3.52 trillion which sets a benchmark for comparison. That fiscal year covered the last three-and-a-half months of George W. Bush's term and the first eight-and-a-half months of Obama's. That price tag came with a $1.4 trillion deficit, nearly $1 trillion more than last year. The overall budget was about a half-trillion more than Bush's for 2008, his final full fiscal year in office. (Fox News)

- As with a teenager donning a new credit card, please intercede for the eye opening "wake up call" that so desperately needs to come to the White House. As "Wisdom calls aloud outside" through the American people, saying in every way possible, "Stop spending our children's portion!", ask that fiscal soundness would return to our country, starting in Washington. Please pray for the "fear of the Lord" to show up in the midst of our leaders concerning this issue of spending, bringing the beginning of wisdom. Intercede for the awe of the greatness of God to curtail and rope in this careless behavior.

- "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." (Proverbs 1:7)


Last week, ABC News broke the story that the stimulus spending didn't add up, pointing to a serious breakdown in calculations by the Recovery Board. For starters, the website that monitors the stimulus dollars,, was bragging about job creation in places like Arizona's 15th Congressional District. The only problem is the 15th District doesn't exist! Nor does Puerto Rico's 99th District, which is said to have received $47 million, and countless others. Apparently, the Recovery Board created to track the stimulus needs help keeping itself on track.

Hundreds of millions of dollars are either missing or misidentified. In dozens of fake districts, the website claims millions of dollars were spent to create a handful of jobs. Take Oklahoma, for instance. says it took the Sooners $19 million to create 15 jobs! Still, Ed Pound, a spokesman for the Recovery Board, announced yesterday that the agency has no intention of correcting its math. "Unless we find significant errors causing public confusion, we are not planning further corrections," said Pound. "Significant errors" like inflating the number of jobs created by 20,000? "Humans make mistakes," Pound told reporters. They sure do--like agreeing to bills like this one. (FRC)

- Unbeknownst to this administration is the truth that their judgment precedes them as they ascribe power to their gods of mammon. Please pray as the remnant of God does their best to intercede, that God will find a few good men, which is all He's ever needed, to stand up for what's right and stop the madness.

Therefore the law is powerless,
And justice never goes forth.
For the wicked surround the righteous;
Therefore perverse judgment proceeds.
"Look among the nations and watch-
Be utterly astounded!
For I will work a work in your days
Which you would not believe, though it were told you.
(Habakkuk 1:4-5)


Websites should be obliged to remove "false rumors" while libel laws should be altered to make it easier to sue for spreading such "rumors," argued Cass Sunstein, Obama's regulatory czar. In his recently released book, "On Rumors," Sunstein specifically cited as a primary example of "absurd" and "hateful" remarks, reports by "right-wing websites" alleging an association between President Obama and Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers. He also singled out radio talker Sean Hannity for "attacking" Obama regarding the president's "alleged associations."

Sunstein presents multiple new measures he argues can be used to stop the spread of "rumors." and contends "freedom usually works, but in some contexts, it is an incomplete corrective." Therefore he would impose strong "corrective" measures to deter future rumormongers. For websites, Sunstein suggests a "right to notice and take down" in which "those who run websites would be obliged to take down falsehoods upon notice." Sunstein also argues for the "right to demand a retraction after a clear demonstration that a statement is both false and damaging." But he does not explain which agency would determine whether any statement is false and damaging.

. The Obama czar argues his regulation proposals for broadcasting are actually presented within the spirit of the Constitution.
Sunstein slams the U.S. courts' unwillingness to "require something like a Fairness Doctrine" to be a result of "the judiciary's lack of democratic pedigree, lack of fact-finding powers and limited remedial authority." He clarifies he is not arguing the government should be free to regulate broadcasting however it chooses. "Regulation designed to eliminate a particular viewpoint would, of course, be out of bounds. All viewpoint discrimination would be banned," (WorldNetDaily) Read more.

What world does Sunstein live in, one that cannot understand the Constitution? His views are dangerous, for no matter what he espouses he has no suggestions for improvement. Pray that the Lord will open his blinded eyes so that his "hateful" and "absurd" ideas will wither and pass away without any influence on the president. Sunstein seems to condemn all who do not hold his views. Again, this man needs an encounter with Jesus Christ.

- "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32)

International News



December 6-18th, the nations of the world will meet in Copenhagen for a so-called "climate change" summit. Nations will sign a treaty, which in the US must be ratified by the Senate, to save the world against global warming, now expanded to climate change, which would take into account both global warming and global cooling. This treaty will establish a global organization called the Conference of Parties, or COP, that has loosely defined taxing and policy authority over all the nations that belong to the COP. The concept of the COP is to tax the rich nations to pay for the poor nation's inability to be good stewards of their environment. This treaty will take from the wealthier nations and give to the poor nations.

Page 8, Section 10 of the treaty states that "an economic transition is needed" to adjust "global economic growth patterns" towards a sustainable low- emission economy based on development of innovative technologies, more sustainable production and consumption, "promoting sustainable lifestyles" and climate-resilient sustainable development "while ensuring a just transition of the workforce." It says, "The active participation of all stakeholders in this transition should be sought, be they governmental, including subnational and local government, private business or civil society, including the youth and addressing the need for gender equity."

Page 9, Section 13 says, "In this context, developed country Parties should demonstrate that they are taking the lead in modifying the long-term trends in emissions reduction consistent with the objective of the Convention and in accordance with its provisions and principles. In doing so, Annex I Parties pledge to meet their targets fully, effectively and in a measurable, reportable and verifiable manner." The United States is considered an Annex I country. And this 179 page treaty commits America to a global socialist redistribution of wealth, ensuring "just transition in the workforce," and active participation on the part of "the youth and addressing the need for gender equity."

This treaty is expected to be signed by the man who occupies the Oval Office. It commits the United States, its states and local governments, its private businesses and its youth to an unconstitutional worldwide socialist governance under the guise of saving the world from the climate. This unprecedented abrogation of US sovereignty could ultimately do away with your Constitutional rights to free speech and freedom of religion. Revelation 13:7 speaks of the antiChrist in a world government, saying, "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations." The prophecy clock will tick forward when this treaty is signed. (Bill Wilson, The Daily Jot)

-- Pray that God would intervene; stopping Israel and the United States from signing this treaty.

-- Pray that intercessors would arise world-wide, to stop this agenda from succeeding unless it is God's perfect timing to bring forth the global rule and its global leader.

-- Pray that believers would not be silent about this, and that they would become informed to inform others.

-- Pray that Israel and the United States will never hand her sovereignty over to a global entity. She already has the ultimate authority reigning over her.

-- Pray that we all will be prepared by the Lord to meet all the challenges that will come when this treaty comes into power.

-- The time of severe persecution may be at hand, but we must pray for revival ahead of that eventuality.


The United Nations is apparently lowering its expectations about reaching a climate change agreement during an international conference in December. The director of the secretary-general's Climate Change Support Team cites the lack of U.S. climate legislation, lack of carbon reduction targets from industrialized nations and lack of funding for developing nations. Janos Pasztor says that all makes it hard to say "how far the conference will be able to go." Pasztor indicated that Copenhagen most likely won't produce a treaty, but instead will push governments as far as they can go on the content of an agreement. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has made a new climate treaty his top priority to replace the expiring Kyoto Protocol, which only requires 37 industrialized nations to cut emissions. (OneNewsNow) Read more

- This sure would be great news, if it were true. Often, when we are told there is "no danger," the opposite is true. Continue to "pray down" this climate treaty, leading to the loss of national sovereignty and the introduction of a global governmental system. God created the boundaries of the nations, and His will cannot be overruled.

- "And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings." (Acts 17:26)


Says 'step closer' to climate deal

US President Barack Obama said Tuesday the world has moved "one step closer" to a "strong operational agreement" on climate change at next month's Copenhagen summit after his talks with Indian and Chinese leaders. (Breitbart)

b. Obama to Lay Out U.S. Climate Goals at Copenhagen

The president is expected to travel to the United Nations summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Dec. 9 before heading to Oslo, Norway, to accept his Nobel Peace Prize. (

c. New EU President: "2009 a Year of Global Governance"

We are living through exceptionally difficult times: the financial crisis and its dramatic impact on employment and budgets, the climate crisis which threatens our very survival. A period of anxiety, uncertainty and lack of confidence. Yet these problems can be overcome by common efforts in and between our countries. 2009 is also the first year of global governance, with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of the financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step towards the global management of our planet. Our mission is one of hope, supported by acts and action. (EU@UN) Read more.

- Father, who would have thought in reading the Bible, that a one-world government would rise from something as innocent sounding as "climate change." So Father we stand firmly against the deceptions within the Copenhagen Treaty, and pray that You will bring this plan to nothing.

- "Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses." (Nehemiah 4:14b)


According to a report on Israeli television [Channel 1], Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will offer a 10- month freeze on construction in areas built on land acquired in the 1967 war [the West Bank, also known as Judea and Samaria]. Jerusalem neighborhoods will be excluded from the freeze. If the reports are true, the temporary halt in building is Netanyahu's attempt to assuage intense international pressure and ease tension between himself and U.S. President Barack Obama.

The Palestinians are demanding that [East] Jerusalem be treated the same as other post-1967 areas, but successive Israeli governments have been firm on distinguishing the Israeli capital from other areas.

Netanyahu is known to have pitched his proposed temporary freeze to the White House in an attempt to get negotiations with the Palestinians back on track. But Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud 'Abbas [Abu Mazen] has been adamant that talks will not resume until Israel puts a complete halt to construction in post- 1967 areas [including East Jerusalem]. (By The Media Line, November 24, 2009) [Reported by: Bridges for Peace]

- Pray that God will lead and direct Prime Minister Netanyahu as he deals with pressures on every side.

- "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye." (Psalm 32:8)


Political commentators think that Netanyahu has made this move of stopping settlement construction for the purpose of persuading the nations to make a move on Iran. The Iranians have said no to moving their enriched Uranium to another country and now the P-5+1 nations have to make a decision. Will they go for enforceable "crippling" sanctions, agree to military action or do little or nothing? Sanctions are efficient if they are crippling ones. If the sanctions are loose in anyway, they will not be efficient. The only way to deal with this in my opinion is a military solution.

Israel is under threat of extinction. The Iranians will use the bomb against us if they can. They have said it over and over again. This is evil and we have to resist it. The Lord did not tell us not to use the sword; He said that you should not live by the sword. We are not looking for the death of the innocent or the wicked, but we are facing an existential threat.

- Pray in agreement with Intercessors for Israel:

Pray for:

The strengthening of the Israeli government so that they do not yield to the pressure of the nations, especially for Netanyahu.

That the government will stand strong on the word of God.

"Abba You are the creator, You rule over all the earth. You can bring an earthquake, or a natural disaster. We ask that the right hand of the Almighty come and destroy our enemies. We ask that You will show the nations that the evil that Iran is trying to do is a threat not only to Israel, but to the whole of the Middle East, even the world. Help our leaders to prepare for what needs to be done.

Give us wisdom and knowledge regarding the areas in which we need to strike, in case we need to go to war, where the nukes are, where the long distance rockets are. May the military leaders in the USA realize that the Iranians would be able to use small bombs as an electro magnetic pulse weapon that would put the USA back into the 1800's. Make the USA aware of this threat and bring them to act in their own behalf, we ask You in the Name of Yeshua."
[Meditate upon Psalm 83.]


A messianic congregation in Beersheba is fighting a court case against the Chief Rabbi of that city and the leader of Yad Lachim and anti messianic organization. The reason being is that the Rabbi incited a violent protest of a group of Orthodox Jews against this messianic congregation. The Pastor of that congregation decided to take a stand on behalf of all the messianic congregations in the Land, to ask for a judgment against such behavior. This is the first time in the history of Israel that something like that has happened.

Pray that:

- That God will isolate the judge from bending under pressure from the Orthodox community. That he will not be manipulated in anyway.

- That the Almighty will give him a courageous heart to stand against this type of discrimination on the part of the Orthodox community.

- That Justice will prevail.

"Father, we ask You in the name of Yeshua that You protect the Messianic Believers in this Land, that a righteous judgment will come about through this ruling to further protect Your people. Father, do not allow the judge to be manipulated by the religious communities." [Intercessors for Israel]


Canada's Lord Monckton was the first to sound the alarm this fall about the dangerous agenda of the Copenhagen Treaty. To view this video, go here.

- Pray for the protection of Lord Monckton. May our Lord raise up other "watchmen on the wall" who can and will sound the alarm to the nations. A time will come, according to Scripture, when the whole world will be under the control of the Antichrist. May our Lord grant us all grace that that time is not yet . . .

- "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven . . ." (Matthew 6:10)

This Week, Worship Our Lord As . . .


"Finally, brothers, good-by. Aim for perfection, listen to my appeal, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you." (2 Corinthians 13:11)

Love and peace -- two wonderful attributes of You, Lord. Thank You! Thank You that Your love is not dependant upon my right deeds or my right living, but it is based on You and Your love for me. How I praise Your name, God of Love and Peace. Amen.
