The Daily Brief
1. Two Police Officers Shot Amid Ferguson Protests - CNN
Two police officers standing guard outside the Ferguson, Missouri, police department were shot early Thursday morning, spurring a manhunt for those responsible and stirring questions about what's next for protesters who have been a constant presence in the city since Michael Brown's death in August.
- Lord, we ask that You will intervene to bring truth and peace to our nation. We bind up these senseless acts of violence in the Mighty Name Of Jesus Christ. Bring justice to the perpetrators, and let Your Spirit move across this region to bring awakening.
- "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." (John 3:17)
2. 3 reportedly questioned in shooting of 2 cops outside Ferguson police department - Fox News
Police were questioning three people in connection with the shooting of two Missouri police officers early Thursday at a protest outside the Ferguson police headquarters, and a top law enforcement official said it was only "by God's grace" that the two cops are expected to survive. "Lucky," St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said at a news conference hours after the early morning shootings. "By God's grace we didn't lose two officers last night."
Attorney General Eric Holder, who had ordered an investigation of the Ferguson police department after a racially-charged shooting last August, condemned the shooting of "two brave law enforcement officers" as "inexcusable and repugnant. We wish these injured officers a full and speedy recovery," Holder said in a statement. "We stand ready to offer any possible aid to an investigation into this incident, including the department's full range of investigative resources." (Read more)
- Lord, we continue to pray for peace for the City of Ferguson in the aftermath of these shootings. We thank you that it was stated that it was "only by God's grace" that these two officers have survived this attack . . . bringing You the glory for this turn of events.
Thank You, Lord, that You will cause every hidden thing to be revealed as the perpetrator is found and brought to justice, in Jesus' name amen and amen.
- "For nothing is hidden, except to be revealed; nor has anything been secret, but that it would come to light." (Mark 4:22)
3. Private Emails: EPA, State Dept., Now DOJ - Holder Maintained 3 Aliases-but Insists Records Have Been Kept- Breitbart
Attorney General Eric Holder used secretive email accounts under aliases during his tenure at the Justice Department, raising fresh questions about the Obama administration's compliance with federal records laws as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reels from her own email scandal. Holder has emailed under the nom de plume "Henry Yearwood" in the past, former Justice Department officials say. The Huffington Post reported Tuesday that Holder had used three aliases. The current is unknown.
Republicans familiar with the issue said that even when congressional officials traveled to the Justice Department for so-called "in camera" review of documents, Holder's email address had been redacted, despite the fact that the documents were not being released. Unlike Clinton, who used a personal email account and her own private email server, preventing government officials from possessing the emails for record-keeping purposes while she was in office, Holder's email address is a government, usdoj.gov email address.
A spokesman for Holder claimed to the Huffington Post that the secretive email accounts did not interfere with the production of Holder emails to congressional oversight officials or FOIA requests. Former Environmental Protection Agency head Lisa Jackson came under fire previously for emailing under an alias, Richard Windsor, that critics alleged had protected her correspondence from some FOIA requests.
- Lord, it has been said that it is not legal for government employees to use private emails for public business, and yet here we have numerous examples of it. Let all truth be revealed- all hidden secrets be brought forth and all lies be revealed to the light.
- "Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." (Matthew 23:28)
4. 2 Secret Service agents crashed into White House barricades after attending party, report says - Fox news
Two senior Secret Service agents -- one of whom is a top member of President Obama's protective detail reportedly drove a government car into White House security barricades after drinking at a late-night party last week.
- Father, it seems that since this current administration took over the White House, the Secret Service has lost its integrity. From sex scandals to breaches in security, they have been struggling to maintain their reputation. We pray for Your hand upon them. If they are disillusioned or oppressed, we ask that You set them free.
-"Forsake foolishness and live, and go in the way of understanding." (Proverbs 9:6)
5. 11 service members in Black Hawk crash presumed dead - Fox News
The 11 service members who were onboard a Black Hawk helicopter that crashed Tuesday night on the Florida panhandle coastline are presumed dead, a Pentagon official said, but a search-and-rescue operation was still underway Wednesday in a desperate search for survivors.
- Lord, we pray Your comfort for the families of this tragic crash. Whatever caused this disaster, we ask that it be found quickly and prevented from occurring again.
-"The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me - To comfort all who mourn" (Isaiah 61 : 1,2b)
6. CIA reportedly helped Justice Department develop technology to access cell phone data - Fox news
The Central Intelligence Agency helped the Justice Department develop technology used to access data from thousands of cell phones at once, according to a published report.
The Wall Street Journal reported late Tuesday that the program uses devices similar to a cellular tower that tricks cell phones into automatically reporting their location. The devices are located on specially equipped planes, usually small fixed-wing Cessnas, that operate out of five cities across the U.S.
- Lord, the privacy of Americans is being eroded day by day- by Federal agencies as well as foreign interests. We pray Your protection against the intrusion into our lives and strategies to remove these problems from our technology.
- "He shall call upon Me and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble" (Psalm 91:15a,b)
7. Victory! Iraq Troops Take Back Town From ISIS - Reuters/Charisma News
Iraqi troops and militias drove Islamic State insurgents out of the town of al-Alam on Tuesday, clearing a final hurdle before a planned assault on Saddam Hussein's home city of Tikrit in their biggest offensive yet against the ultra-radical group. The power base of executed former president Saddam's clan, Tikrit is the focus of a counter-offensive against Islamic State by more than 20,000 troops and Shi'ite Muslim militias known as Hashid Shaabi, backed by local Sunni Muslim tribes. If Iraq's Shi'ite-led government is able to retake Tikrit it would be the first city clawed back from the Sunni insurgents and would give it momentum in the next, pivotal stage of the campaign-to recapture Mosul, the largest city in the north.
- Thank You, Lord, for this victory against ISIS. We pray for continued success in battle for these forces, but with trepidation, as they are all Islamic and the motives of the heart may not be good. We also pray that Your Spirit will begin to move among the forces of Iraqis and Iranians to bring them to salvation.
- "For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." (1 Samuel 16:7b)
8. ISIS Finds New Frontier in Chaotic Libya - New York Times
Nearly four years after the ouster of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, Libya's warring cities and towns have become so entangled in internal conflicts over money and power that they have opened a door for the Islamic State to expand into the country's oil-rich deserts and sprawling coastline. Libya has become a new frontier for the radical group as it comes under increasing pressure from American-led airstrikes on its original strongholds in Iraq and Syria.
- Father, we pray that You set a line over which this evil empire cannot cross. We plead the Blood of Jesus Christ against all Islamic groups in Libya, and ask that they be torn down from their demonic power base.
- "just as they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations, So I will chose their delusions and bring their fears upon them." (Isaiah 66:3d, 4a)
9. Updates on Three Cyclones Threatening South Pacific - Bureau of Meteorology (Australia)
[From Kris Schlyder]
At the time of writing this email Severe Tropical Cyclone Pam, between Vanuatu and Fiji, is currently a Category 4 cyclone and is expected to intensify to Category 5 before veering to the south-east and softening to category 4. It is currently moving south at about 4 km per hour.
Cyclone Nathan, Category 2, is slowly approaching the north Queensland coast in the area of Cape Melville north of Cooktown. The Weather Bureau is predicting that it won't reach the coast because an upper level system coming from the west will turn it around and send it back out into the Coral Sea as a Category 3 Cyclone.
The Tropical Low off the WA coast is now Category 2 Tropical Cyclone Olwyn which is predicted to cross the WA coast in the area of Exmouth as a Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone tomorrow morning Friday 13 March. (Read more)

Across the countries of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, Jewish leaders say their communities are feeling increasingly uncomfortable as anti-Semitism once again appears to be on the rise. (Read more)

- ""Listen to Me, you who know righteousness,
A people in whose heart is My law;
Do not fear the reproach of man,
Nor be dismayed at their revilings.
"For the moth will eat them like a garment,
And the grub will eat them like wool.
But My righteousness will be forever,
And My salvation to all generations."" (Isaiah 51:7,8)

1. Israeli Voters Divided, Christians Urged to Pray - CBN News
The question of which parties and which leader Israel will choose to lead their next government in Tuesday's election is still very much up in the air. The 2015 campaign features 26 parties, and even the pollsters are confused.
Pollster Rafi Smith, who has 35 years of experience conducting surveys in Israel, told reporters in a briefing Wednesday, "If you will ask me who's gonna be the next prime minister, I will tell you I don't know."
We do know that the next prime minister is going to be Benjamin Netanyahu or Labor Party leader Isaac Herzog. Either man could be asked to form a government after next Tuesday, March 17. (Read more)

2. As Israel vote looms, centre-left pulls ahead of PM Netanyahu's Likud - AFP
The center-left Zionist Union has opened up a slim lead against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud Party in the parliamentary elections scheduled for March 17, according to new polls. The two parties had been virtually tied for weeks, but a new survey by Israel's army radio found the Zionist Union winning 24 seats, to Likud's 21. A poll by Channel 2 television, meanwhile, had the Zionist Union winning 25 seats, and Likud winning 21.
There are 120 seats in the Israeli Knesset, and either faction will need to form a coalition with other parties in order to govern. Netanyahu still might have an advantage over his rivals in doing so: Several far-right parties, which would be his natural allies, are expected to capture a significant number of seats. The "swing vote" in the election could be the center-right Kulanu Party headed by Moshe Kahlon, who has not yet indicated which bloc he would support. (Read more)
3. Trailing with days to go, Likud frets over possible defeat - Times of Israel
With Likud polling at least three seats behind the Zionist Union, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voiced concern Wednesday at the possibility of a left-wing government forming after next week's elections Speaking at a Likud party rally in the coastal city of Netanya, the prime minister said that if the gap between the ruling party and its center-left rival isn't closed in the six days remaining before the country goes to the ballot box, "there's a real chance that [Zionist Union leaders] Tzipi Livni and [Isaac] Bouji Herzog will be the next prime ministers of the state of Israel, with the support of the Joint [Arab] List."

4. IS Syria-Iraq communication lines smashed: coalition - AFP
Forces fighting the Islamic State group have cut critical communication and supply lines used by the extremists between Syria and Iraq after a two-week operation, the US-led coalition said.
Backed by air strikes, the forces "overcame ISIL (IS) resistance" in northeastern Syria near the strategic town of Tal Hamis -- once an IS stronghold -- and "denied the terrorist group its freedom of maneuver in the area," the Combined Joint Task Force said in a statement. (Read more)
5. ISIS releases video purporting to show child soldier killing 'Israeli spy' - Haaretz
ISIS released a video on Tuesday that it claims shows the execution of East Jerusalem Palestinian Muhammad Musallam, 19, who was taken hostage as an alleged Israeli spy three months ago in Syria, NBC News reports.
The video, published by the group's Furqan media outlet, showed Musallam sitting in a room wearing an orange jumpsuit, talking about how he had been recruited and trained by the Israeli intelligence service. He said his father and elder brother had encouraged him. After that, it showed Musallam being escorted to a field and executed by a boy, described by an older, French-speaking fighter as one of the "cubs of the caliphate".
The clip, which was approximately 13 minutes long, showed Musallam on his knees as he listened to the older fighter speaking the verdict in French. Then the boy, wearing a military uniform and armed with a pistol, stands face to face with Musallam and fires one bullet into his forehead. Musallam crumbles, then the child shoots him three more times and chants "Allahu Akbar!" (God is Greatest). [Read more]
6. Israel demolishes EU-funded shelters in Jerusalem - YnetNews
Israeli authorities on Tuesday demolished an EU-funded shelter in Arab east Jerusalem, the European Union said, denouncing the move. "We condemn today's demolition of temporary shelters funded by the European Union... as part of its response to the needs of the affected communities," an EU statement said. EU funds have helped to pay for some 200 temporary buildings used as shelters in villages inhabited by Bedouin communities in the West Bank, just outside Arab east Jerusalem.
The structures demolished on Tuesday were small metal constructions put up on the outskirts of Arab neighborhood Issawiya, an AFP correspondent said. Jerusalem's municipality was not immediately available for comment.A spokesman for Regavim, a rightwing lobby group, said the move was unusual. "This doesn't happen every day, and it certainly doesn't happen to EU buildings," Avi Hyman told AFP. (Read more)
7. 2,300 year-old treasure discovered inside North Israel cave - Jerusalem Online
Three Israelis visiting one of North Israel's largest and most hidden stalactite caves were astonished to find a 2,300 year-old treasure inside. They immediately informed the Israel Antiques Authority, whose representatives were very surprised by the "historic" finding. . . They were crawling through the cave, when suddenly one of them noticed a shimmering object, which later on turned out to be coins buried in the days of Alexander the Great, in the end of the fourth century BC.
The Israel Antiques Authority representatives who were called to the cave, found also silver jewelry next to the treasure. The jewelry was hidden inside a pouch made of cloth. The Authority estimates this is one of the greatest findings in northern Israel over the past several years. "The objects may have been hidden by local residents who fled the area following the instability which the death of Alexander the Great incited in the region," the archeologists estimate.
After rescanning the cave, the archeologists discovered additional findings, that date back to 6,000 years ago. (Read more)

Hillary Clinton--A Prophetic Babylonian Connection
Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server for State Department business raises many more important questions for the presidential wannabe to answer. WorldNetDaily reported on March 3 that Clinton's emails were hacked and published in Russia Today, revealing that "wealthy Sunni Islamists in Saudi Arabia" funded the September 11, 2012 attack on the US mission in Benghazi. The New York Times reported on March 8 that the "Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation has accepted tens of millions of dollars in donations from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Algeria and Brunei." Some gave while she was Secretary of State. But wait, there's more...
It is a well known fact that Hillary Clinton's top aide of nearly 20 years, Huma Abedin, has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. In July, 2013, former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy wrote in the National Review that Abedin " worked for many years at a journal that promotes Islamic supremacist ideology that was founded by a top al-Qaida financier, Abdullah Omar Naseef." During that time frame (1996-2003), Abedin also worked for Hillary Clinton. Nationally syndicated columnist Diana West in July, 2013 added: "It was edited first by Huma's father, Syed Abedin, and now by her mother, Saleha Abedin. Saleha is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood."
West revealed that "Mother Abedin also directs an organization (the International Islamic Committee for Woman and Child) that comes under the umbrella of the Union for Good, another US-designated terrorist organization. As McCarthy reminds us, "the Union for Good is led by Sheikh Yusef al-Qaradawi, the notorious Muslim Brotherhood jurist who has issued fatwas calling for the killing of American military and support personnel in Iraq as well as suicide bombings in Israel." The MB creed is as follows: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
The MB's detailed plan to take over North America was revealed in the 2009 Holy Land Foundation trial for money laundering to terrorists. It called for a "grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house..." Clinton's relationships pose a great danger to all of us, akin to King Hezekiah revealing all things of his nation to the emissaries of Babylon (2 Kings 20:13). The result was prophesied by Isaiah in 2 Kings 20:17, "Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the Lord." It's not about just a few emails.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Another Chaplain Needs Your Help!
Another Chaplain Needs Your Help!
Yet another military chaplain has landed himself in trouble for following the teachings of his faith. Lt. Commander Wes Modder, a decorated U.S. Navy Chaplain who has served with distinction for 19 years, has been removed from his duties and will be brought before an official Board of Inquiry and could be ultimately forced out of the military.
Why is such drastic action being taken against someone who was recommended for early promotion? Chaplain Modder expressed biblical views of sexual morality, including homosexuality, when counseling another officer. For this, he is accused of "failing to show tolerance and respect."
Chaplain Modder -- a Christian chaplain -- gave biblical counsel about sexual morality, and now he's in danger of losing his job. This kind of intimidation must not be allowed to continue. The chaplaincy exists in order to give spiritual care to men and women who serve our country, sacrifice much, and are often daily in harm's way. When a chaplain is not allowed to speak the tenets of his faith, what is left for him to speak?
Please read the petition below to the Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and the Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus calling for Chaplain Modder to be fully restored and all charges to be dropped against him. If you agree with it, click the link to sign it. We will deliver your petition to them to show them that the American people will not stand for their military being whitewashed of faith.
Dear Secretary Carter and Secretary Mabus,
The action taken against Lt. Commander Wes Modder is unacceptable, and must be rescinded immediately. Chaplains in the military must be allowed to fully and freely represent in word and in deed the faith communities that have endorsed them. Chaplain Modder should be free to counsel according to his biblical faith on the issues of sexuality, morality, and any other issue. I urge you to take action to restore Chaplain Modder and ensure that his religious freedom is secure.

Solar Eclipse: Next Friday
Passover Blood Moon Preceded by Exceedingly Rare Solar Eclipse
on Friday, March 20th
Please note: The following are excerpts, only, of the article cited above. Please be sure go here to get the full understanding of this research. Thank you.
An exceedingly rare solar eclipse will take place next week over a most symbolic location on a day infused with both great natural significance and profound religious meaning.
There will be a total eclipse of the sun for two minutes over the North Pole on Friday, March 20, the day of the Spring Equinox which coincides with the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the first month in the Biblical calendar year, a solar occurrence that has never happened before in human history.
"The concurrence and rarity of this natural event, together with the times in which we live, indicates the finger of God," Gidon Ariel, an Israeli Orthodox Jew told Breaking Israel News. Ariel serves as the co-founder and CEO of Root Source, an online platform where Christians can learn "Jewish concepts, ideas and thought, to more deeply understand the roots of their faith, in an informal and loving manner" according to the group's website.
. . . While many articles and books have recently been written on the blood moons, the rare solar eclipse occurring two weeks before Passover's blood moon was noticed by Root Source co-founder Bob O'Dell.
"Studying world history from a Jewish perspective has caused me to perceive the Blood Moons a bit differently than I did at first," said O'Dell, an American Christian who has observed and studied lunar and solar astronomical events for more than 35 years.
O'Dell took his findings to Ariel and the two developed a free eBook on the blood moons as well as a complementary course where Christians can learn what O'Dell calls the "Jewish aspects" of the blood moons and solar eclipses of 2015.
Judaism teaches that God gave the Torah (Bible) to humanity in the Sinai wilderness, as opposed to inside the Land of Israel, in order to demonstrate that the Divine Word belongs to all of humanity, Jews and non-Jews. According to O'Dell, there is no place on earth that is as symbolic of wilderness as the North Pole.
"Whereas every piece and parcel of land in the world is owned by someone or some country, the North Pole is an international site and is not owned by any nation," O'Dell explained to Breaking Israel News. "If God is going to teach a lesson to humanity, to the entire world, there is no more symbolic location than the North Pole."
A total solar eclipse at the North Pole on the first day of spring occurs once every 100,000 years. For it to occur on the first day of the first month of the Biblical calendar year is, however, entirely unprecedented since this is only the year 5775 according to Jewish tradition, meaning that there has never been such a solar occurrence in human history.The skies over the North Pole will darken for two minutes on Friday, March 20th at 10:18 AM Greenwich Mean Time (worldwide local times are available here)
Bob O'Dell, a devout Christian, and Gidon Ariel, an Orthodox Jew, are both calling their co-religionists to join them for two minutes of prayer as a response to the solar eclipse. O'Dell and Ariel chose a specific Bible verse for the global prayer.
"I will be praying Isaiah 11:9 for two minutes at the Western Wall in Jerusalem at 12:18 PM local time" he said.
"None will harm or destroy another on My entire holy mountain, for the land will be as full of the knowledge of the LORD as the sea is filled with water."
"I invite Jews and Christians worldwide to join me at that exact moment, and to speak that verse out loud as a prayer in your native language. May God hear and quickly answer the combined prayers of all of us around the world."

Who Are the ANZACS?
Who Are the ANZACS?
During both of the World Wars, troops from AUSTALIA and NEW ZEALAND joined forces to become "the ANZACS." They fought alongside the Allies until victory was gained in both wars.
The ANZACS were a fearless fighting force, that gained great victories in both World Wars, including on D-Day on June 6, 1944.
Today, members of the Body of Christ have joined together in Australia and in New Zealand to "fight the good fight of faith" as ANZACS against the forces of evil that would seek to overwhelm us in our day.
Capitol Hill Prayer Partners and the National Day of Repentance are but two ministries in our nation that, once again, stand as ALLIES in the fight against evil in our day. In this dark hour, we welcome the support of the ANZAC alliance as we join forces to combat the work of the enemy in these last days.

A Prophetic Word
"And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof." (Rev. 5:5)
Sometimes we struggle to hear what the LORD is saying to us as the Body of Christ; particularly those words that challenge our "own personal comfort zones."
These personal comfort zones can be from our own interpretation of scripture and doctrinal teaching and religious standing. I would like to share with you a particular word the LORD challenged me with that led me back to scripture which is the compass director that keeps us standing on the rock and solid ground.
I began to hear the word and to listen and accept the word He was giving that then began further to unfold; particularly the call to WAR (warrior); to the body of Christ and to FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH.We all know that faith works through Love and God is LOVE so our fight is in God and for the purposes of God and His Kingdom. We also know that our FIGHT is not against flesh and blood but against the powers and principalities of the unseen world that reflects in the dominion of Satan and his evil outworking of his nature of violence; murder; hatred and so on;[Ephesians 6] he Satan was a murderer from the beginning and wants to DESTROY man who GOD CREATED IN HIS IMAGE TO WALK WITH HIM - Hallelujah!!
So let us look at the scriptures to remind ourselves that we are in the last days in active WARFARE and our warfare is not carnal but spiritual;mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
We also know by scripture that before Jesus returns to rule and reign as KING of kings and LORD of lords there will be an increase of satanic powers even with the working of false signs and wonders and "doctrines of demons" that even enter the church, with other gospels that can be defined as any doctrine that reject God's word and presents another secular or man made doctrine that is contrary to God's ways who is Holy and True to His Own WORD that He has given to us in the scripture; including His created natural laws as well as spiritual laws; these laws He has given to us as boundaries for our protection as His family and also extended to all peoples and nations for His plans and purposes of His Kingdom reign and will on earth.
". . . THAT THROUGH THE CHURCH . . . MIGHT NOW BE MADE KNOWN UNTO ANGELIC RULERS AND AUTHORITIES (PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS) IN THE HEAVENLY SPHERE."
8 To me, though I am the very least of all the saints (God's consecrated people), this grace (favor, privilege) was granted and graciously entrusted: to proclaim to the Gentiles the unending (boundless, fathomless, incalculable, and exhaustless) riches of Christ [wealth which no human being could have searched out], 9 Also to enlighten all men and make plain to them what is the plan [regarding the Gentiles and providing for the salvation of all men] of the mystery kept hidden through the ages and concealed until now in [the mind of] God Who created all things by Christ Jesus. 10 [The purpose is] that through the church the [c]complicated, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known to the angelic rulers and authorities (principalities and powers) in the heavenly sphere. 11 This is in accordance with the terms of the eternal and timeless purpose which He has realized and carried into effect in [the person of] Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear).
When I read such a scripture; I am clearly reminded the scripture from the book of Daniel.
32 And such as violate the covenant he shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God].
The LORD also is asking us to STAND in the day of Evil. STANDING involves KNOWING GOD that in knowing Him we are strong to STAND; He is our strength He brings us victory from the victory He has already won at the cross; defeating Satan;sin and death and all those powers that resist His Word of authority and resist the ONE of all authority and power given by the Father to Yeshua[ Philippians Chapter 2 ]; for it is only at HIS NAME Yeshua Jesus that all principalities must bow the knee to; of those powers in heaven;those powers on earth and those powers under the earth as it IS WRITTEN.
Standing in unity and with God's purpose together(threefold chord impossible to break) and the flow of the anointing brings the commanded blessing. [Psalm 133]
Unity brings a standing ovation at the Congress gathering in the United States to those that listened to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the dangers of compromise with militant Islam and terrorism that would allow a nuclear Iran to emerge. Prime Minister Netanyahu proclaims a STAND against such a solution; as placing such power in terrorist hands would be an evil that will haunt future generations, ISRAEL WILL STAND alone if necessary to defend herself; we the church; His warriors of the KINGDOM; are called to STAND with Israel as this man speaks the truth in what He is saying. We are also standing with Australia in Anzac love and unity and with other nations with each other with a united STAND for ISRAEL. Let us declare with one voice of unity with a standing ovation with the clapping of hands that we STAND with Israel DECLARING TO THE HEAVENLY SPHERE; JESUS; NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES.

It was so evident at the congress when Prime minister Netanyahu honored those dignitaries present that there was much humility in his tone of voice in what he was saying was not just political but was said with a heart gratitude and respect.It is time we honored one another in the same spirit according to God's Word in spirit and in Truth [Philippians Chapter 2] and so we will pray a prayer of commitment and honor.
Dear Father in Jesus name, We come to give thanks and praise to you and to honor one another in the mind of Christ; we thank you that in the spirit of humility as our example of Yeshua to whom you gave authority to as He humbled himself in obedience to you; even unto death on a cross; and so you highly exalted Him and gave Him a name above every other name; that at His name alone; all powers authorities in heaven on the earth and under the earth must bow the knee to His Name. Today Abba Father we stand in the spirit to honor Prime Minister Netanyahu and the people of Israel who trust in your name, we also honor before you the people of America and the believers in Christ and the Congress leaders that stood to their feet in applause at the words spoken by your servant, we bless you Father for the standard of righteousness that many Americans are seeking and their love and standing for Israel; we ask for your continued mercy to America your grace and protection even in the most darkest hours; heal and restore your people Lord and bless those that seek your will and fellowship in Yeshua HaMashiach [Jesus the Messiah]. Amen

Meet the Brilliant Stanford Doctor Who's Devoted His Career
to Saving the Unborn
"I've occasionally had people at libertarian gatherings who wouldn't talk to me due to my work on pro-life issues. To which I say, Libertarians ought to have a big tent. You win by addition and multiplication, not by subtraction and division. It's a lesson we need to take to heart." -Dr. Michael New
(Dearborn, MI)-As America's pro-life movement advances to protect mothers and pre-born children, many work daily on diverse efforts-in crisis pregnancy centers, in churches praying faithfully, on the mission field, in public policy groups... in a thousand other places.
One common need for pro-life advocates is unimpeachable research: interpreting data on the number of abortions, abortion rates, and the effectiveness of pro-life advocacy to save lives. On the last point, any serious scholar will uncover the work of Michael New, Ph.D.
After earning degrees from Dartmouth and Stanford, New held a postdoctoral position at Harvard University before moving to his current teaching role at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. He also serves as an Adjunct Scholar with Charlotte Lozier Institute, the research and education arm of Susan B. Anthony List.
In an exclusive interview, New discusses how faith sparked his deeper involvement in defending pre-born lives, what research says on banning abortion after 20 weeks, why libertarians need a big tent, and more.

A Shrinking River Threatens the U.S. Southwest
The desert sun beats down from a cloudless sky as Las Vegas landscaper Mat Baroudi roars across Lake Mead in his motorboat. It's hot. The lake is the perfect place to be on a scorching Nevada morning. Baroudi loves coming out here with his son to fish and swim. But for the last few years, they have watched the lake shrink from under them. "Every time we come out here, we're shocked by how much water's missing," Baroudi shouted over the roar of the engine.
To get an idea how far the nation's largest reservoir has fallen, consider this: What was once one of Lake Mead's top scuba-diving spots is now halfway up a dry hillside. (VOA) Read more
Washington, D.C. Honors Abraham Lincoln!
Lincoln's Second Inauguration Remembered Last Saturday, March 7th, at the Lincoln Memorial
In partnership with the National Park Service, the Lincoln Group of D.C. is proud to announce this celebration of the 150th Anniversary of Lincoln's Second Inaugural Speech.
Chuck Todd, moderator of Meet the Press and former chief White House correspondent for NBC News, will deliver the keynote address for a commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's second inauguration.
The program will also include a recreation of Abraham Lincoln delivering his Second Inaugural Address, and the administration of the oath of office by Chief Justice of the United States Salmon P. Chase. Music will be provided by the Military District of Washington; multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and music historian Bobby Horton; and the Washington Performing Arts Society's Children of the Gospel Choir.
Lord God, we thank You that there are those, even in this city, who remember the words and the actions of our Founding Fathers, and who honor their memory.
Today, we remember these stirring, final words of President Abraham Lincoln, as he finished his Address:
" . . . so still it must be said 'the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.' With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."
Lord God, let those words ring in our hearts, even today, as we move forward to build Your kingdom on earth. In Jesus' name, amen and amen.
"Thus said the LORD, Stand you in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls." (Jeremiah 6:16)
