"The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD." (Proverbs 21:31)

The Daily Brief

1. More than a million evacuated in Japan as Typhoon Roke nears - UK Telegraph

More than a million people have been urged to evacuate their homes across Japan as the approach of a powerful typhoon brings threats of flooding and landslides.

- Father, we pray for a powerful move of God over the Japanese people that will draw their hearts to call out to the Lord who will deliver them. We rebuke the winds and storms of the enemy sent against their lives. Save their souls by the blood of Jesus that they be transformed from a life of darkness into a life filled with light and love. In Jesus' Name.

- "Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord. Deliver me in Your righteousness, O Lord, and cause me to escape: incline Your ear unto them, and save them." (Psalm 70:1, 71:2)

2. Nuclear terrorism may rise from Libyan, Syrian fallout - Jerusalem Post

Iran is directly involved in activities related to the design and testing of nuclear weapons, head of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission, Dr. Shaul Chorev, warned on Tuesday in a speech at the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna.

- Father, we ask that warring angels be sent to Iran and surround the perimeter of that land, preventing its nuclear activity from succeeding. We pray they will fail to reach their goal of destroying Israel. Scatter and disband clusters of evil that they fall into the ground and die. Protect the godly citizens of Iran by the blood of Jesus and oversee a mighty revival whereby many souls will come into the kingdom of truth. In Jesus' Name.

- "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience and perseverance the race that is set before us. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith." (Hebrews 12:1)

3. Fed Is Expected to Take New Action to Lift Economy - Fox News

The Federal Reserve is running out of options to try to boost a slumping economy and lower unemployment. So policymakers are expected to reach 50 years back into their playbook for their next move.

- God, we ask that you still the hands of the secret organizations that are producing unnecessary chaotic situations in the economy. This has become an inside war against our country and hardworking citizens. Lord, dispatch warring angels to go into the undercover evil realms of organizations promoting a new world order set up for the anti-Christ to reign. God, destroy their plans and weaken their influence over the economy and protect the people. In Jesus' Name.

- "Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light. Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son, Jesus Christ." (Colossians 1:12-13)

4. Gallup Poll: More Than Half of All Federal Dollars Wasted - NewsMax

For the first time in 32 years, Americans believe the federal government is wasting a little more than half of every dollar it takes in -- regardless of how that money is spent, according to new Gallup poll.

- Lord God, we cry out to You to save America and our people. By Your power, close off every gate that has allowed the government to have easy access to our dollars. Speak into the ears of the waster of our money - Enough is Enough. You shall not destroy the land that has been the greatest giver, has had the greatest outreach of evangelism to the world, helping the needy, spreading the truth of God's eternal Word so that souls could be saved. God, defend our nation and cleanse our land that the waster be destroyed and the Lord God of heaven, our Redeemer and strength move in. In Jesus' Name.

- "For I know that my Redeemer lives, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. And they remembered that God was their Rock, and the high God their Redeemer." (Job 19:25, Psalm 78:35)

5. Irene's Costs Could Top $1 Billion for Vermont, Governor Says - Fox News

- For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.(Jeremiah 29:11)

The Daily Jot

When covetousness abounds

Exodus 20:17 is the 10th Commandment, which says, "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's." We see that we are not to desire what is not ours. Exodus 18:21 explains who is to govern, saying, "Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens." It is my opinion--stressing that this is my opinion--that covetousness is bad government, as well as sinful personal practice.

America has strayed far from the Founding Fathers' intent of limited government based on what the Constitution calls "enumerated powers." Enumerated powers, I believe, are very similar to the Ten Commandments in that they limit what is acceptable practice. I have had debates with other ministers of the gospel who take issue with my contention that if it is not expressly permitted in the Bible, it is not allowed. The liberal view is if it is not expressly forbidden in the Bible, it is allowed. This debate extends to Constitutional issues as well. A strict constructionist of the Constitution would say that government is limited by the authority given in the document. A liberal would say that if it is not forbidden, it is permissible.

From the position that coveting is bad government, this is one of the worst in history. The health care mandate is a tax increase. Increased government fees are tax increases. Confusing the public on taxing the rich (capital gains vs income tax) is a means of class warfare and promoting tax increases. Policies that cause home ownership foreclosures, higher food and fuel prices, the loss of jobs, record and insurmountable deficits and debt are all covetous practices that are detrimental to the general welfare of the governed. This particular White House has gone out of its way to replace a free market economy with a managed economy, which is coveting every citizen's ability of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Likewise, this government is covetous toward your hard earned money in creating an environment that does not protect the national interest, provide for the common defense or for the general welfare of the people. By spending billions of taxpayer dollars in propping up the Muslim Brotherhood and offshoots of al Qaeda in their efforts to topple governments in Egypt, Libya, Yemen and elsewhere, the White House is undermining the national security of the United States and its allies. Now there are US ground troops in Libya--something the White House promised would not happen. Indeed, another front of war by America is opened. Covetousness abounds to every American citizen's peril.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Thousands Gather at U.N.

Thousands Gather Outside United Nations

Show Support for Israel during Durban III Conference

The gathering today in New York was organized by Eagles' Wings, a Christian organization founded by popular singer, song writer and Evangelist, Robert Stearns.

The following is an excerpt of a report filed today by Earl Cox, President,

Speaking to a large gathering of supporters of Israel today outside the United Nations building in New York City, international Christian broadcaster and journalist, Earl Cox, told the audience, "Abu Mazen and the Palestinian Authority are puppets for radical Islam which is committed to the complete destruction of all Jews. Mazen is not only the head of the Palestinian Authority. He is also the head of Fatah which has now joined hands with Hamas; a full-blown terrorist organization operating out of Gaza. It seems the Palestinian leader, who wears a suit and tie instead of the battle fatigues worn by Hamas leaders, is pulling the wool over the eyes of the leaders of the world. Abu Mazen is having his cake and eating it, too. By uniting with Hamas, the Palestinian Authority is now a terrorist organization. The big question is, "Why are the United Nations and other world leaders failing to recognize this? Could it be that they would rather pacify terrorists rather than confront them? Quite obviously the answer is yes."

Cox went on to say, "The Palestinian Authority is nothing but a puppet for radical Islam; and by uniting with Hamas it's nothing more than an attempt by Hamas to put on a legitimate face for the world. . . "It is absurd and unthinkable that leaders of supposedly civilized countries around the globe, to include the leadership of the U.N., would show support for a puppet group of radical Islamic terrorists by even considering granting them claim to real estate belonging to Israel on which to establish a Palestinian state. Such a consideration belittles all civilized nations."

"Abu Mazen, who is also known as Mahmoud Abbas, is a clone of Yasser Arafat. The Palestinian Authority, Fatah, and Hamas are all one and the same. They have made no secret of their goals: first, to dissolve Israel's defensible borders and then to annihilate every Israeli Jew. If the United Nations elects to move in favor of the Palestinian Authority, this will send a clear message to all terrorists that there are no consequences for the mass murder of innocent people. Submitting to terrorist demands only serves to perpetuate terrorism. History has proven that appeasement never works," Cox said. Read more.

Update: U.N. Vote

U.N. vote on Palestinian state appears averted

UNITED NATIONS • An intense effort to deflect the Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations appeared to be near fruition, potentially defusing the crisis through a diplomatic maneuver that arguably saves face for all sides.

Diplomats scrambled Tuesday to cobble together a deal that would indefinitely delay debate on the Palestinian proposal at the U.N. Security Council. The proposed delay would keep the Obama administration from needing to veto the request, which it has desperately sought to avoid, and buy time for resumption of stalled Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

Diplomats say privately that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has signed off on the deal, which would keep $600 million a year in U.S. support for the Palestinian Authority and other international support intact.

This scenario, which Western officials have been trying to engineer behind the scenes for weeks, "is now likely," a senior European diplomat said Tuesday.

The White House announced Tuesday night that Obama will meet with Abbas today to discuss the issue. Obama was already scheduled to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today. Obama has said that he wants the Palestinians to negotiate peace with Israel rather than pursue recognition from the U.N.

Hanan Ashrawi, a Palestinian legislator and ally of Abbas who is in New York for the ongoing U.N. General Assembly session, said Palestinian officials are willing "to accept some delay, of the kind you would have under normal United Nations procedures." But she said that if the U.S. or other countries delay the process to undermine the Palestinians' bid for enhanced international standing, "we have recourse to other action," such as approaching the more pro-Palestinian U.N. General Assembly for recognition. (Source: Paul Richter - St. Louis Today, September 21st, 2011)

10 Reasons to Abolish the UN

By Daniel Greenfield

September 21, 2011

When the United Nations begins deliberation on the Palestinian Authority's demand for a unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state in the next few days, it will purposefully ignore the fact that the Gaza half of that proposed state is ruled by a group, Hamas, that has called for the destruction of Israel and a genocide against the Jewish people. This entire event, Daniel Greenfield writes in this searing new pamphlet, reminds us once again that the UN is "a democracy of tyrants" that has long since turned its back on the ideals present at its founding.

In 10 Reasons to Abolish the UN, Greenfield shows why the "world body" has become a theatre of the absurd in which injustice of all kind flourishes. From failing to prevent outbreaks of genocide across the globe, to creating a rancid regimen of double standards that obsessively condemn Israel, while allowing countries such as Syria and Cuba to head its Human Right s Commission, the UN has become part of the problem rather than part of the solution. It is little wonder that at the end of this provocative pamphlet, the author says that he had trouble limiting why the UN should be abolished to a mere 10 reasons.

The Good News Corner

Messianic Pro-Life Group Saves Israeli Babies

Abortion. When one thinks of the many dangers and threats facing Israel, abortion is not usually on the list. But it should be. Since Israel's rebirth as a nation state 63 years ago, 40,000 Israeli babies have been lost to abortion on average every year. That's well over two million unborn children terminated, more than the number of Jewish children killed in the Nazi Holocaust.

Considering population growth rates over the past six decades, had those two million unborn babies been given a chance at life, there would be an additional 10 million Israelis today. The moral argument against abortion aside, in light of the perceived demographic threat to the Jewish state it is not difficult to see why abortion is such a danger to this tiny nation.

One of the very few organizations working to reverse this trend is Messianic-run Be'ad Chaim (Hebrew for "Pro Life"). Despite the fact that those running Be'ad Chaim are unreserved believers in Yeshua, the organization enjoys a considerable level of cooperation with state authorities, enabling it to help young women with unplanned pregnancies across Israel.

While Be'ad Chaim does actively battle against the phenomenon of "abortion-on-demand" in Israel, dealing with girls in what it calls "crisis pregnancies" calls for a softer approach.

"Our goal is to show women, and men, an alternative to abortion, so that they will choose life," reads Be'ad Chaim's website. "We want them to realize God's promise to His people, Israel, as he says in Deuteronomy 30:19: 'I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessings and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your children may live.'"
