The Daily Brief

1.Conservative groundswell unmistakable - OneNewsNow

Mid-term elections are only two weeks away, and as conservatives continuously gain support, it appears they are on their way to winning back control in Congress. Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins calls the upcoming election "historic" and says he remains optimistic when he considers the poll numbers reported from across the country.

"The groundswell of support for conservative candidates continues to grow," he accounts. "Sharon Angle in Nevada, taking on Harry Reid, raised $14 million in this last quarter in her campaign.

Michelle Bachmann in Minnesota, [whom] Nancy Pelosi has targeted, she raised...[about] $6 million -- a record for a member of Congress."

- Almighty God, we see the wind of the Holy Spirit blowing upon all the conservative candidates all over the country. God, You are behind each one who is pressing toward the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. The rottenness is under the blood of Jesus and the Lord God Almighty shall rein victorious in this election. In Jesus Name.

- Until you learn and know and recognize that the Most High God rules the kingdom of mankind and gives it to whomever He will. (Daniel 4:25b)

2. Official: Pentagon shooting 'random' - Politico

A shooting at the Pentagon Tuesday morning appears to be a "random" event, and law enforcement officials say it doesn't suggest the need for any immediate changes in security protocols there.

Officers heard between five and seven shots fired in the vicinity of the South Parking lot, which is between Interstate 395 and the building, and immediately shut down the Pentagon "reservation." Upon investigation, they found that rounds had struck two bullet-proof windows on the third and fourth floors. Neither of the windows was penetrated, and the offices involved were under renovation and unoccupied at the time.

There have been no arrests in the case.

- Father, we ask that You ignite the sensitivity of those who make such decisions not to respond. Press upon them the need to apprehend the one who fired these shots. Guard the Pentagon that there be no mistakes in judgment to act quickly in such cases. Protect the Pentagon and those employed there with the blood of Jesus that no harm come upon them. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus Name.

- "He that handles a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusts in the Lord happy is he." (Proverbs 16:20)

3. NBC News: 100 Democratic Seats In Play - NewsMax

The electoral fortunes of President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party have eroded so badly over the last several weeks that there are now more than 100 House seats up for grabs, according to NBC Nightly News Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd.

- Almighty God, You have taken this election out of the hands of the enemy and are now holding all the 100 house seats and the entire election in Your holy hands. This is an extra-base hit. It is God who will set all things in godly order and will push to the finish those who honor God and will set this nation back on the right road. Thank You, for Your sweet mercy and grace which You have extended to America. Continue to abort the enemy's intent. Remove power from their agenda and bring them down to be as weak as water. In Jesus Name.

- By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges and governors of the earth. (Proverbs 8:16)

4. Military told to accept gay applicants - Washington Times

The military is accepting openly gay recruits for the first time in the nation's history, even as it tries in the courts to slow the movement to abolish its "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

- Father, lay Your hand upon the wicked and lawlessness regarding this policy that is still in force. The evil shall reap evil from the top to the least and they shall never prosper, not now or ever. Their plans have fallen upon quaking soil with no foundation. May they cry out to God to save them from inevitable destruction and God's judgment. In Jesus Name.

- "Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own heart, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves." (Romans 1:24)

5. Officials Hint Fed on the Verge of More Easing - ABC News

A string of Federal Reserve officials on Tuesday indicated the central bank will soon offer further monetary stimulus to the economy, with one saying $100 billion a month in bond buys may be appropriate.

- God, we know that You are in complete control of the world's monetary system and all the decisions that are made regarding the world's economy. We put our complete trust in Almighty God and heed not to the whirlwind minds of the hidden organizations that attempt to move in the direction of one world control. Take the axe out of their hand and render them powerless until their time comes. God is over all, both now and forever. In Jesus Name.

- "Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge." (Psalm 46:10-11)

6. NY Fed, 8 Firms Threaten BofA Over Mortgage Securities - CNBC

The New York Federal Reserve Bank is part of a consortium of eight large institutional investment firms that is demanding that Bank of America repurchase loans included in mortgage securities.

- God, cover this issue with the blood of Jesus and may Your will prevail over the negotiations and outcome. You are in control, Lord, and all will be well because Your hands are on the wheel. In Jesus Name.

- "God sends forth His commandment upon earth: His word runs very swiftly." (Psalm 147:18)

7. Geithner Vows That US Won't Devalue Dollar - NewsMax

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner vowed on Monday that the United States would not devalue the dollar for export advantage, saying no country could weaken its currency to gain economic health.

- God, hold Mr. Geithner to this sound reasoning and let him not be moved from his position to maintain the value of the dollar. Protect our money, Lord. Remove the hands of destruction from our dollar by the blood of Jesus and restore our economy. In Jesus Name.

- "For wisdom is a defense, and money is a defense: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom gives life to them that have it." (Ecclesiastes 7:12)

The Middle East in Focus

This week, for all the headlines cited below, please join us in proclaiming THIS DECREE:

For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto you, "Fear not; I will help you. Fear not, you worm Jacob, and you men of Israel; I will help you," says the LORD, and your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 41:14)

1. New Survey Indicates Large Oil Field Buried Under Negev Sand - Arutz News

A new preliminary geological survey indicates 26 million barrels of recoverable oil-worth $2 billion-may be sitting underneath the sandy soil in the area of two kibbutzim in the Western Negev, near Gaza. Energtek announced it has received a geological survey on the Nir-am-Sa'ad block, "identifying the potential for exploitable oil and natural gas reserves." Its subsidiary Energtek Products has the exclusive license to explore and exploit the resources in the area. The firm added, "Current estimates will need to be confirmed by additional studies. Additional seismic analysis, modeling and further verifications are required to compile more accurate data on the fields and to provide more accurate reports on actual recoverable reserves."

- Father, You are the faithful God who is forever watching over Israel. We pray abundant blessings be upon the State of Israel through this oil discovery. Hold Your hand over the tiniest detail in recovering this oil that all be honest and forthright. Keep their enemies out by the blood of Jesus. In Jesus Name.

- "The Lord shall command the blessing upon you and your storehouses, and in all that you set your hand unto, and He shall bless you in the Land which the Lord your God gives you." (Deuteronomy 28:8)

2. Abbas weighs opening West Bank to Hamas fighting and intelligence units - DEBKAFile

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is seriously weighing a secret plan for bringing a fresh influx of Hamas fighting and intelligence forces into the West Bank at points opposite Israel. At the same time, he tells the world that the only impediment to Middle East peace is Israel's refusal to halt Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank and Jerusalem. debkafile's military and intelligence sources report that this secret plan is at the top of the agenda of the second round of reconciliation talks between Abbas' Fatah and Hamas representatives opening in Damascus Wednesday, Oct. 20. The plan would be a trade-off: Fatah fighting and intelligence units would also regain a foothold in the Gaza Strip for the first time since they were thrown out in Hamas' 2007 putsch.

- Father God, we plead the blood of Jesus over this meeting on October 20th, that every word drop to the ground and be as nothing. Let no two words stick together but bring mass confusion and discountenance between Hammas, Fatah and anyone else attending this talk. God, we dispatch a warring angelic host to surround the West Bank and close off every gate and every opening that the angels with swords of fire in their hands will close it off to all who oppose Israel. Empty the West Bank of terrorists and all enemies of Israel by a mighty act of God. Blow fire down from heaven that will destroy the wicked. Protect all of Israel by the blood of Jesus. In Jesus Name.

- "Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after the soul of Israel: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise their hurt. Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord chase them. Let their way be dark and slippery and let the angel of the Lord persecute them." (Psalm 35:4-6)

3. Lebanese leaders made sure the Ahmadinejad-Hizballah show was a flop - DEBKAFile

Lebanese President Michel Suleiman put his foot down . . . Despite Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad's efforts to ham up his groundbreaking visit to Lebanon last week, debkafile's military sources quote Western and Arab observers as summing it up as a dud and a shambles. Lebanese leaders clamped down on his performance in the South on Thursday, Oct. 15, and spoiled his plan for a grand display of hostile power opposite Israel.

The following Sunday, Oct. 17, debkafile's Middle East sources disclose that Jeffrey Feltman, US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, arrived in Beirut for a brief stop. He had been instructed to assess the damage Ahmadinejad's visit had wrought to US interests in the country and report back to President Barack Obama. The American official was informed that the Iranian president had opted for giving his visit a Lebanese national character rather than reflecting Hizballah factional interests. The report he brought back to Washington was therefore favorable. Neither Ahmadinejad nor Nasrallah had obtained any of their objectives from the event.

- Father, all glory goes to God for defeating the evil edicts of this man. We thank God for the men who stood their ground and with righteous judgment God moved to break the yoke of evil off their necks. God was in their midst and He showed His strength and delivered them from their enemy. Let Your angels ascend and descend upon Lebanon and cleanse them from sin. In Jesus Name.

Ahmed Qurei, a senior PLO official and former Palestinian Authority prime minister, has said he does not rule out the possibility that the Palestinians will launch an "armed resistance" against Israel if the peace talks fail.

6. US working on 'compromise' plan to renew freeze - Jerusalem Post

The US is busy working on a "compromise proposal" that will allow Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to "come down from the tree" and re-enter direct talks, senior diplomatic officials said Monday.

7. Jimmy Carter: Palestinians live in a 'cage' - Ynet News

Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that Palestinians are "living in a cage" in Gaza and that Hamas must be included in all major efforts for peace.

The Daily Jot

Perversion over Principle: Oligarchy rule on gays in military

The ridiculous is upon us. A Federal District Court judge is dictating national defense policy by forcing the military to accept and recruit homosexuals. The current Administration, which supports allowing homosexuals in the military, actually filed a limp-wristed request that the judge stay the dictum, which was rejected. Judge Virginia Phillips called the government argument for a stay "vague." Now, at least for a time, military recruiters are forced by court order to recruit homosexuals, the military is forced to stop processing discharges involving homosexuals, and the homosexual agenda moves forward by judicial fiat rather than by Congressional action.

Let us be reminded that homosexuality in the eyes of the Lord is abomination. Leviticus 18:22 says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." Furthermore, the Apostle Paul goes into great detail about both the spirit and the physical sides of homosexuality in Romans 1:22-27, "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.

"Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that reward of their error which was due."

President Bill Clinton instituted the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that went against federal law, which states that the military prohibits anyone who "demonstrate(s) a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts" from serving as "it would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability." Sodomy has been grounds for discharge from the military since it was first formed in the Revolutionary War. Imagine leaving the security of the United States, the security of your family, property and freedom in the hands of those described by God as abomination. It is a principle that should not be trumped by perversion or politics.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Obama Rewrites the Declaration - Again!

Third Time's Not a Charm: Obama Omits 'Creator' From Declaration -- Again

While speaking at a political fundraiser on Monday, Obama omitted -- for the third time -- the word "Creator" when quoting the Declaration of Independence, a founding document of the United States.

During his speech, Obama said:

"As wonderful as the land is here in the United States, as much as we have been blessed by the bounty of this magnificent continent that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, what makes this place special is not something physical. It has to do with this idea that was started by 13 colonies that decided to throw off the yoke of an empire, and said, 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that each of us are endowed with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.'"

The other two occurrences took place on Sept. 15, during a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute and again on Sept. 23, during a speech given to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

David Barton, founder and president of Wallbuilders, said that America's limited government was based on the recognition of a Creator.

"We say certain things are 'off limits' to government because God put them off limits -- that's what our Declaration tells us," he explained. "If you don't believe that rights come from the Creator, then you believe they come from government. If they come from government you can regulate them, you can repeal them, you can do what you want.

"That's the difference between limited government and unlimited government." (CitizenLink) Read more.

Terror Alert

Call to Destroy Israel by Any Means - in Washington, DC

American professor Kaukab Siddique recently called for Israel to be destroyed by any means necessary, and issued a warning to Jews as well. Siddique spoke over Labor Day weekend at an anti-Israel rally in Washington D.C., but received little notice at the time. "We must stand united to defeat, to destroy, to dismantle Israel--if possible by peaceful means," Siddique said. His comments were captured on film by the Investigative Project on Terrorism that publicized them recently. "Perhaps, like Saladin, we will give them enough food and water to travel back to the lands from where they came to occupy other people," Siddique continued. He called on Muslims to "unite and rise up against this hydra-headed monster which calls itself Zionism." (Israel National News)

Additional information:

According to CBN Siddique has made past statements against "the Jews," including accusations that Jews have taken over America. He has also denied that the Holocaust took place, and has spoken in defense of convicted terrorists, including one who was behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

His employer, Lincoln University, has received significant state funding over the past decade. University administrators responded to Siddique's most recent rant by defending his right to free speech. The university does not support his views, but cannot control what he says outside the classroom, they said.


From two of our Partners in North Carolina . . .

Dear Sara:

We find the article above absolutely disgusting. Please find below the name and e mail of the President of Lincoln University, in PA. He is copping out by saying the University cannot control what professor Kaukab Saddiqe says outside of the university. Yet, they can control his employment, and this man is a hate monger against Israel and the Jewish people.

The sad part of this is that Lincoln University is an African American University, and of all people they should come against those who speak hate because of color or religion. Please send an e mail to the President of the University expressing your thoughts on this article. Please send this out on your e mail list!!!!!!

This university receives funding from the State of Pennsylvania, and the Governor is Edward G. Rendell, e mail here.

Request he withhold funding this university!

Christian Coalition Voter Guides Now Available

"Can a corrupt throne be allied with you - one that brings on misery by its decrees?" (Psalm 94:20)

Dear Friend,

Less than two more weeks. That's how much longer we have to educate voters before Election Day.

Recent polls show a record number of competitive US House and Senate races . . .and lots of momentum for conservatives. And while those reports and VERY encouraging, they are still just opinion polls. They're not votes. Not yet.

If you haven't done so, be sure to visit our 2010 Voter Guide page and download voter guides for your area. From there you can print, copy and distribute to anyone and everyone you know and help make sure they know where the candidates really stand before they cast their ballots.

In recent days, we also have added voter guides for many more races -- as well as Spanish language versions for key races in California and Florida.

If you have already downloaded voter guides, you can help us spread the word to others by clicking here and using our new application to spread the word on Facebook and Twitter.

The Christian Coalition surveys candidates on the issues, investigates their voting records and reviews their public statements. After that we let voters know where the candidates really stand. This is why so many politicians hate the work we do - because it makes it harder for them to hide!

In the past, we have seen candidates blame their loss on voter guides, and some have even demanded that the government investigate and stop this critical voter education effort!
But we have the right and responsibility to share this critical information with voters, and that is why we need your help to make this project happen!

Just one more educated voter can be the difference between victory or defeat in any given race. Every vote counts!

Election Prayers



(Part Two of Four)

Deut. 10:12 And now, Israel what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

5. Pray that the many sleeping Christians, as well as the lukewarm and the backslidden, will wake up and hear the warnings of the Lord to prepare themselves to fight in the Army of God in this battle that is raging for our nation.

Joel 3:9 Proclaim this among the nations: "Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near, Let them come up."

6. Pray that any evil against the campaigns or candidates be exposed and thwarted immediately. Let truth prevail. Pray for a legal, honest, clean election.

Luke 12:2, 3 For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. 3 Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.

Some Chilean Miners Return to "Camp Hope"
in Private Service to Thank God for their Rescue

"I am bringing him a piece of rock from the mine . . as a tribute to courage, faith and hope."-- Chilean President Sebastian Pinera

(Copiapo, Chile)-Somewhat reminiscent of the Biblical story of the one-in-ten lepers who returned to thank the Lord for his healing, 13 of Chile's 33 rescued miners returned to "Camp Hope" on Sunday, to hold a private service thanking God for their remarkable rescue.

According to a REUTERS report, the gathering-which was closed to the press-was held at the site where the miners' families had stayed throughout the duration of the 69-day ordeal, praying and holding candlelight vigils till their return.

The service was held in a cordoned-off tent, where the miners and their families came together, praying and singing hymns. Afterward, they dismantled the tents that had been the homes of family members for some two months.

"It was inspiring," remarked 52-year-old Juan Illanes, one of the miners, "Seeing this camp I feel I've had incredible support. It gives you strength."

Chile's President Sebastian Pinera-who had visited the mine several times during the time they were trapped inside, and who was there to embrace each one as they emerged at the surface-embarked on a European tour on Monday, carrying a rock from the inside of the mine which he planned to give to British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Said the Chilean President, "I am bringing him a piece of rock from the mine, so he will keep it in Downing Street as a tribute to courage, faith and hope." (Reuters)
