The Daily Brief - Friday, November 12, 2010

" . . . the ruler of this world has been judged." (John 16:11)

The Daily Brief

1. The uninvited guest: Chinese sub pops up in middle of U.S. Navy exercise - UK Daily Mail

When the U.S. Navy deploys a battle fleet on exercises, it takes the security of its aircraft carriers very seriously indeed. At least a dozen warships provide a physical guard while the technical wizardry of the world's only military superpower offers an invisible shield to detect and deter any intruders. That is the theory. Or, rather, was the theory.

- Father, keep America on the cutting edge in defensive measures that nothing slip through the cracks which could cause destruction to our military on land, sea or air. This submarine was "shadowing" the U.S. fleet while Beijing pleaded ignorance and dismissed the affair as coincidence - but in truth was an obvious intended maneuver. You protected our military from danger and destruction by stationing angels that surrounded our ships. Hold back our enemies by the power of Your hand. In Jesus Name.

- "Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me." (Psalm 35:1)

2. Iran, Venezuela plan to build rival to Panama Canal - Ha'aretz

The recent border dispute between Costa Rica and Nicaragua is a sign of an ambitious plan by Venezuela, Iran and Nicaragua to create a "Nicaragua Canal" linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans that would rival the existing Panama Canal.

- God, we bring all these plans and ambitions under the scrutiny of Your ordained will. None can build without Your approval. Hold back that which is evil and promote that which would bring forth good. In Jesus Name.

- "God disappoints the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise." (Job 5:12)

3. Osama bin Laden appoints new commander to spearhead war on West - UK Telegraph

Known to western intelligence services by the alias Saif al-Adel, or "Sword of the Just", al-Qaeda's new chief of international operations is believed to have conceived of the wave of strikes that set off terror alerts across Europe recently, as well as last week's mid-air parcel-bomb plot.

- God, shoot down the evil intelligence that propel these men to invent darker ways to kill, steal and destroy. It is God that gives them life and yet their allegiance is given to do evil day and night. Lift the veil from their eyes where they are able to see by visions and dreams that it is the Lord God who will deliver and set them free of this dastardly way of life, through believing in Jesus as their own personal Savior. May they choose life in Christ and forsake the life given to sin and evil where their reward is an eternal hell with satan and all the wicked dead. In Jesus Name.

- "The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know Your name will put their trust in You: for You, Lord, have not forsaken them that seek You." (Psalm 9:9-10)

4. Obama can't close deals at G-20 summit - Politico

Obama failed to reach agreement on two international deals to help spur the U.S. economy, unexpected setbacks on an Asia trip that was supposed to emphasize his stature abroad and change the subject from last week's electoral drubbing.

- God, change the heart of the king. Bring him low enough that he will reach out to God and accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name.

- "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

5. White House edits stain its reliance on science - AP

The oil spill that damaged the Gulf of Mexico's reefs and wetlands is also threatening to stain the Obama administration's reputation for relying on science to guide policy.

- Father, stand against all that was not of God, and reinforce all that is of God. Reveal all that was done in secret for ulterior purposes and shine light where darkness once prevailed. Take down and destroy all the charades and pull down all that was built on lies and deception. Expose this evil for what it was and bring a complete and total cleansing of America from the head to the foot. In Jesus Name.

- "But know that the Lord has set apart him that is godly for Himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto Him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still."( Psalm 4:3-4)

6. Texas Gov. Perry calls Social Security bankrupt 'Ponzi scheme' - AP

Gov. Rick Perry stopped off in the Alamo City on Tuesday for a bite of barbecue and a bit of promotion for his new book -- and called for completely repealing Obama's health care legislation while he was at it.

- Father God, we thank You for Gov. Perry's stand against Obama's health care legislation. It has been destroyed by God, shredded and turned to worthless sawdust at the feet of Jesus. It is a non-issue and we pray the powers of heaven will prove it so. In Jesus Name.

- "Destroy them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against God." (Psalm 5:10)

7. Obama Lawyers Back Military Gay Ban at Supreme Court - Bloomberg

The Obama administration said the U.S. Supreme Court should let the military continue to bar openly gay people under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, arguing that a change in the law should come from Congress, not the courts.

- Father, keep Your powerful hand over this issue that nothing go through the courts or Congress that would allow gays to infiltrate an area that has a healthy boy/girl relationship mentality and belief system. Guard this with holy angels to protect and defend this cause. In Jesus Name.

- "Therefore has the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His eyesight." (Psalm 18:24)

The Middle East in Focus

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

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, "thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." (Jer. 29:11)

1. Netanyahu, Clinton meeting ends after 7 hours - Jerusalem Post

Hillary Clinton and the Most Honorable Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held talks that were "friendly and productive" and stressed the importance of continuing direct negotiations in pursuit of an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, according to a joint statement put out by the two governments Thursday evening.

2. Hizbullah: We are ready for another war with Israel - Jerusalem Post

Hizbullah is ready for another war with Israel, said the group's leader Hassan Nasrallah in a televised speech on Thursday evening.

The Daily Jot

Your tax money supporting Israel's and America's enemies

The Palestinian Authority is the so-called "moderate" Palestinian organization that every Administration since the Clinton presidency has supported to bring peace to the Middle East. The United States has spent billions of taxpayer dollars over the past 16 years to prop up the Palestinian Authority and to give it legitimacy. Its a pretty good gig if you are a terrorist associated with the organization that was founded by the father of modern terrorism Yassir Arafat. The Palestinian Authority is just the suit and tie front of terrorism in Israel and American taxpayers have been funding its operations against Israel. The money goes to buying weapons, shelter, food, training, and clothing for moderate terrorists.

The latest round is $150 million of American tax money that Hillary Clinton announced will be given to this terrorist front organization. The Palestinian Authority is the Palestinian Liberation Organization's representative to Israel in trying to negotiate a two-state solution that would cut Israel into two pieces and give the traditional Israel lands of Samaria and Judea, now commonly called the West Bank, to the terrorists. The Palestinian Liberation Organization is comprised of the terrorist group Fatah, the radical militant socialist group The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and several other communist, socialist, Baathist, and militant groups. All these are sworn enemies of Israel.

The strong Bible-based Christian roots of America, especially as they stood post World War II, has determined the course of history intertwining Israel and the United States together in an unbreakable bond. These have been based on both scripture and that Israel has been the only true ally of the United States in the Middle East. Genesis 12:3 says of Israel, "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." George W Bush was the first president to ever publicly call for the establishment of a Palestinian State. The current White House has promoted such ideology to the extent of telling Israel it cannot build houses on its own land.

Much of the church in America believes in "replacement theology"--that Christians have replaced Jews as God's chosen people. The error in this thinking is found as the Apostle Paul writes in Romans 10:12, "For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him." In 11:17, Paul explains using an example of the olive tree: "And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and the fatness of the olive tree." Much of the Church, our tax money and our leaders are supporting the enemies of Israel, where God's word says are curses rather than blessings.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Lame Duck Session Begins Next Week

Senate Could Vote on Arms Treaty with Russia

The lame-duck session approaching on November 15 could allow the Senate to ratify the New Start Treaty, a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty with Russia that would require both countries to make a "modest cut" in their nuclear arsenals. Conservative Republicans have protested the treaty and now fear the GOP could be blindsided by Democrats rushing to ratify the treaty before more Republicans can be sworn in this January.

- Pray for leaders to be vigilant to protect our nation from harm; for an accurate evaluation of the need for weapons in relation to overseas threats, and for diplomacy while assessing the situation at home and abroad. Intercede that leaders would be perceptive and cautious with their decisions on national security.

- "But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine." (Psalm 33:18-19)

News from the Border

Cult of Holy Death Crossing U.S.-Mexico Border

With more than 28,000 people killed in drug violence since Mexican President Felipe Calderon began his fight against organized crime in late 2006, there may be more to criminal incidents on the border than first meets the eye. An article put out by the Foreign Military Studies Office of Fort Leavenworth, KS suggests that the turbulent climate along the U.S.-Mexico border may be linked, at least in part, to the "patron saint" of death, crime and revenge - La Santa Muerte. According to this study, difficulties along the border have a definite spiritual dimension and are often rooted in Satanism.

Endorsing drug trafficking and gang violence, this rapidly spreading cult (the Cult of Holy Death) has a belief system that has become more organized in recent years. Best described as "a set of ritual practices offered on behalf of a supernatural personification of death" (represented by a skeleton) followers of Santa Muerte are people whose lives are touched, if not completely motivated by crime. They identify themselves as living "between the legal and the illegal," and criminals call upon Santa Muerte for protection, power and blessing - even while committing crimes.

- Praise God this week for apprehending two high-profile drug cartel leaders. Pray for demonic strongholds along the U.S.-Mexico border to crumble, and for criminals to be brought to justice - that deeds done in darkness would be brought to light. Intercede for our nation's spiritual eyes to be opened to the invisible battles being waged in secret. Pray for protection for authorities. Ask God to dispel evil where human weapons and strategies cannot penetrate, and to guard the weak and the defenseless.

- "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Eph. 6:12) (Intercessors for America)

Jerusalem Housing Pushes Hot Button

Israel presented plans last Friday for the construction of about 1,300 apartments in Har Homa and Ramot - West Bank neighborhoods standing on land annexed to Jerusalem after the 1967 war. The project is raising eyebrows around the world, especially in light of strained relationships in Washington last March when Vice President Biden's visit to Israel coincided with a similar plan for East Jerusalem construction. Palestinian authorities insist the land will be the capital of their future state, so Israel's latest installation of housing plans hits the same nerve that controversy pinched last spring.

- Intercede that any plans meant to attack Israel's reputation, plant doubts about the country's leadership, or rob her inheritance would not succeed. Ask the Lord to grant Israeli leaders continued tenacity, discretion, integrity and resolve. Pray for God to watch over the city and melt the hearts of key opponents who harbor resentment or envy toward the Jews.

- "The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance. " (Psalm 33:10-12)
