Focus on Israel
1. Thousands of Aussies will welcome Bibi - Times of Israel
Australians across that great southland are excitedly anticipating the first-ever visit to their country this week by a sitting Israeli prime minister.
Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to arrive Wednesday for a five-day visit - longer than the one he just made to the United States. Australian Ambassador to Israel David Sharma has described this as a "massively significant" and "historic" event. (Read more)
2. Security key for Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu's Australia visit - The Australian
Benjamin Netanyahu arrives in Australia for a historic visit on Wednesday, the first by a serving Israeli prime minister. After endless back and forth concerning the duration and content of the visit, Mr Netanyahu has extended his stay, which at one stage was going to last for little more than 24 hours, to stretch now from Wednesday to Saturday.
He will hold a series of talks with Malcolm Turnbull, and the two leaders will appear together at a number of events. The Israeli leader will also meet Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove, as well as Bill Shorten and NSW Premier Gladys Berejeklian. He will also attend a full meeting of federal cabinet and address Jewish community functions.
Israeli leaders are typically reluctant to be far from home for long in case a security crisis breaks out. The fact the visit is going ahead, and that it matches or exceeds in length Mr Netanyahu's visit to the US this week, is a sign of his appreciation for Australia and the priority he puts on the relationship. This is part of Israel's burgeoning diplomatic profile in Asia. (Read more)
3. Netanyahu to face protests on Australia state visit - Times of Israel
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to face a series of protests during a state visit to Australia this week, after a first stop in Singapore. He'll be the first-ever sitting Israeli leader to visit these countries.
Netanyahu landed in Singapore overnight Sunday-Monday where he is expected to stay for two days before heading off to Australia.
"We will strengthen security, economic and other ties with these countries," he said at Sunday's weekly cabinet meeting before he left the country. (Read more)
4. Herzog: Netanyahu caved to right-wing ministers, scuttled regional peace deal - Times of Israel
Opposition leader Isaac Herzog on Monday confirmed reports that he entered negotiations to join a unity government last year in the framework of a secret regional agreement that was discussed at the time, and argued that the potentially historic deal fell through because Prime Minister Benjamin eventually caved in to domestic political pressures.
Addressing American-Jewish leaders in Jerusalem, Herzog (Zionist Union) said Netanyahu had been willing to appoint him foreign minister to oversee a process that would include a freeze on settlement construction outside the settlement blocs - areas of the West Bank that Israel would seek to retain under a peace deal - in return for international and Arab consent to building within the blocs.

5. Nasrallah to Israel: 'Count to 1 million' before starting war - Israel National News
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Monday warned Israel to "count to one million" before waging a new war on Lebanon.
Speaking to Iranian television and quoted by the Lebanese Naharnet website, Nasrallah said Hezbollah will not abide by any "red lines" in any future confrontation.
"Israel must 'count to one million' before waging any war on Lebanon and we're prepared for any threat," he stated. (Read more)
6. Watchdog Launches Interactive Database for 'Easy Access' to Info on Quarter Billion Shekels Given to Israeli NGOs by Foreign Governments Seeking to Undermine Jewish State Policy - Algemeiner
An Israel-based watchdog has launched an interactive database for what it calls "easy access and analysis" of the more than $60 million (NIS 235 million) in foreign government funding that went to Israeli non-profits actively working to undermine the Jewish state in its conflict with the Palestinians from 2012 to 2016.
NGO Monitor said that it collected the data from the quarterly submissions to the Israeli Registrar of Non-Profits in accordance with the 2011 "Law and Disclosure Requirements for [Groups] Supported by a Foreign Governmental Body," and it does "not reflect the organizations' total budgets or full amount of donations received annually."

7. Sinai-Based Terrorists Fire 2 Missiles at Israel, ISIS Suspected - United with Israel
Terrorists fired two missiles at Israel from the Sinai Peninsula on Monday.
The missiles exploded in an open space in the Eshkol Region, causing no casualties or damage. The alert system was not set off because the missiles posed no threat to civilians. (Read more)
8. In 2012 Speech, Incoming National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster Emphasized Importance of Remembering the Holocaust - Alegemeiner
On August 26, 2012, McMaster spoke at the dedication of a new Holocaust exhibit at the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning in Georgia. The transcript of his remarks - in which he talked about the importance of remembering the Holocaust - was unearthed by The Algemeiner on Monday and can be read below. (Read more)
9. New wave of bomb threats at Jewish centers across US - Times of Israel
At least 10 Jewish community centers across the United States were targeted with bomb threats on Monday, for the fourth time in five weeks.
The threats have been called in to JCCs across the country, according to Paul Goldenberg, the director of Secure Community Network - an affiliate of the Jewish Federations of North America that advises Jewish groups and institutions on security.
News reports indicated that threats were received by JCCs in St. Paul, Minnesota; Houston, Texas; Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Birmingham, Alabama.
"It appears to be the same serial caller" as in the prior incidents, Goldenberg told JTA. (Read more)
The Daily Brief
Every prayer below is presented to our Lord in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.
1. Trump Just Hired the Army's Smartest Officer. Will He Let Him Do His Job? - Slate.com
In choosing Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser, President Trump has made his most imaginative decision to date. Now we will see whether he and his inner circle let McMaster do the job.
McMaster is widely viewed as the Army's smartest officer. His service in Iraq and Afghanistan as a regiment commander and staff adviser drew justifiably high acclaim. But he has spent little time in Washington and has had no experience even participating in interagency meetings, much less running them.
The key thing to know about McMaster-an active-duty three-star general and deputy commander of the Army's Training and Doctrine Command-is that he has made a career of speaking truth to power, often instinctively, without the slightest talent for fawning to his superiors. . . (Read more)
- Thank You, Father God, that our president has once again chosen a man of exceptional talent and ability to head the National Security Agency. Please be with Lt. General McMaster now in all he faces in his new position for this administration and for the nation. We pray Your protection over Lt Gen McMaster and his family, and seal him off from the hate and secret plans of the enemy. In Your Name, amen.
- "My mouth shall speak wisdom, and the meditation of my heart shall bring understanding." (Psalm 49:3)
2. Bill Bennett: Press can't stand that Trump doesn't fear them (VIDEO)
- Fox News
Former education secretary gives his take on president's news conference. (View this video here.)
- Thank You, Lord, for giving us a man who is truly fearless in meeting the press. We thank You, Lord, that once again, President Trump is turning the tables in another realm: that of the fourth estate. May he continue to call good, good and evil, evil, as needed throughout his years in office. In Your name, amen.
- "He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked." (Isaiah 11:4)
3. Revised travel ban targets same seven countries, exempts green card holders - Fox News
President Trump's revised travel ban targets the same seven countries listed in his original executive order and exempts travelers who already have a visa to travel to the U.S., even if they haven't used it yet.
A senior White House official said the order will target only those same seven Muslim-majority nations, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan and Libya. Trump was forced to come up with a second order after federal courts held up his original immigration and refugee ban. The official said the order could come sometime this week. (Read more)
- Father God, we thank You for a President who demonstrates the humility to receive correction, when needed, but the boldness to yet pursue his course. We thank You for this new travel ban and we ask that it be implemented immediately, so that our nation can be kept safe from unvetted terrorists. In Your Name, amen.
- "But deliver us from evil . . ." (Matthew 6:11)
4. DNC frontrunner Ellison ripped as 'disaster on every level' - WND
The endorsements for Congressman Keith Ellison, a leading candidate to take over the Democratic National Committee, continue to pour in. The president of the Baltimore City Council endorsed him. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., backs him. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has endorsed the Muslim congressman.
And so has David Duke. The former member of the Louisiana House of Representatives and imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan tweeted his support for Ellison, saying, "I really like Keith . . . at least he knows." Duke's comment was likely intended as a troll of both Ellison and the media, the latter of which delightedly smeared Donald Trump during the presidential campaign because of Duke's unsolicited and disavowed endorsement of the GOP nominee.
But as the Washington Times noted, the reference to "he knows" is a cryptic allusion to Ellison's associations with anti-Semitic groups such as the Nation of Islam. Indeed, Ellison's radical past goes well beyond casual connections with marginal figures. As WND recently reported, Ellison's career was launched by dedicated Communist Party members and he was involved in explicitly communist movements. (Read more)
- Lord, we pray in Your Mighty power that You will not allow this man to become the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Amen!
- "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles." (Psalm 34:17)
5. Surprise: At the End, Obama Administration Gave NSA Broad New Powers - PJ Media
This story, from the Jan. 12, 2017, edition of the New York Times, was little-remarked upon at the time, but suddenly has taken on far greater significance in light of current events:
In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government's 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.
The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches. (Read more)
- Father, we pray that You will reveal all hidden things done by the previous administration as quickly as possible.
- "Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known." (Matthew 10:26)
6. Trump facing historic delays in confirmation push - Fox News
Not only has the Senate confirmed just a handful of Trump's Cabinet nominees nearly three weeks into his presidency, but hundreds of other positions remain unappointed. Part of the problem is Trump has not named most of those mid-level nominees; and part, as Trump complained Tuesday night, is Senate Democrats' "obstruction" of his Cabinet picks.
As of Wednesday, Trump was still waiting on confirmation for 10 of his 15 Cabinet nominees. By this time in 2001, then-President George W. Bush had his entire Cabinet confirmed. Then-President Barack Obama was just three short of a full Cabinet on Feb. 8, 2009.
Senate Republican leaders asserted this week that -- based on numbers provided by the Partnership for Public Service, Plum Book, and Congress.gov -- Trump has the fewest Cabinet secretaries confirmed at this point in the presidency of any incoming president since George Washington.
While Trump is pressing ahead with his agenda on immigration, security and other issues, the slow pace of confirmations underscores the struggle his administration will continue to face in getting things done. (Read more)
- Lord, we ask that You bring about a quick confirmation of those President Trump needs to do his job. We pray against the continual attacks and delays that have left previous administration officials in place that should have been gone.
- "He who diligently seeks good finds favor, but trouble will come to him who seeks evil." (Proverbs 11:27)
7. New US Ambassador to UN Nikki Haley Draws Praise From Pro-Israel Community After Calling Out Security Council for Double Standard Toward Jewish State - Algemeiner.com
The new American UN envoy is receiving warm praise from the pro-Israel community in both the US and abroad after taking the Security Council to task last week for its double standards when it comes to its treatment of the Jewish state.
Addressing reporters on Thursday after taking part for the first time in a monthly Security Council meeting on Middle East issues, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said, "I am here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I'm here to emphasize the United States is determined to stand up to the UN's anti-Israel bias. We will never repeat the terrible mistake of Resolution 2334 and allow one-sided Security Council resolutions to condemn Israel. Instead, we will push for action on the real threats we face in the Middle East." (Read more)
- Father God, we are so grateful that Nikki Haley has been chosen to serve as our Ambassador to the United Nations, and we thank You for this strong statement, in front of that international body, in support of Israel. We entrust Ambassador Haley and her family to You for protection in Jesus' name, amen.
- "Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a ruling rightly given." (Proverbs 25:11)
8. U.N. leader blames 'Islamophobia' for rising global terror- WND
The United Nations - under a new leader who personally oversaw the relocation of millions of Muslim refugees into the U.S., Canada and Europe - is doubling down on its "anti-Islamophobia" campaign against the West.
U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres, a Portuguese socialist who headed the U.N's refugee agency before being promoted to secretary general in January, traveled to Saudi Arabia this week where he sat with Saudi royals and cited "Islamophobia" as the reason for increasing terrorism around the world.
"One of the things that fuel terrorism is the expression in some parts of the world of Islamophobic feelings and Islamophobic policies and Islamophobic hate speeches," Guterres said at a joint news conference with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir. Echoing the comments of Hillary Clinton in her 2016 presidential campaign, Guterres said Islamophobia actually helps the Islamic State or ISIS to attract new recruits.
But the way others see it, Guterres just gave a free pass to Islamic extremists to commit acts of terror throughout the world. (Read more)
- Father God, these leaders are woefully ignorant of the knowledge of Islam and what Islamophobia really means. We ask that Your truth and Your light come into the hearts of those in the UN, and bring them revelation and wisdom.
- "The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe." (Proverbs 29:25)
9. Vitaly Churkin, Russia's U.N. Ambassador, Dies at 64 - New York Times
Mr. Churkin had been unusually absent during several Security Council meetings recently, but this month he brushed off reporters' questions about his health. The deputy Russian ambassador, Petr Iliichev, said in brief remarks at a United Nations meeting on Monday that Mr. Churkin had been in the office "until the final moments."
A Fire Department official said a 911 call had reported a cardiac arrest at the Russian mission on East 67th Street in Manhattan. Police officers from the 19th Precinct station house, across the street, performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The medical examiner's office said an autopsy would be conducted on Tuesday.
A police official said Mr. Churkin had a history of medical problems, including leukemia and heart ailments. He had kept them private among his diplomatic colleagues.
Ms. Power, who sparred with him regularly in the Council chambers, said on Twitter that she was "devastated" by the news of Mr. Churkin's death. "Diplomatic maestro & deeply caring man who did all he cld to bridge US-RUS differences," she wrote. (Read more)
- Father, as news of this ambassador's death sends shockwaves through embassies around the world, we ask that each one who hears this news would stop and ponder his or her own eternal life. May this "jolt" help to jolt many to realize the fact that all of us must sooner or later come to that time. Are we ready to meet our Maker?
- "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment . . ." (Hebrews 9:27)
10. Another Round of Dangerous Flooding, Landslides and Damaging Winds Underway in California - Weather Channel
Another potent atmospheric river event has set up in northern California, once again raising the risk of dangerous flooding, landslides and damaging winds in this storm-weary region. Several additional feet of snow will also pile up in the higher terrain of the Sierra Nevada.
A steady stream of rain continues to focus on locations from the Bay Area into the Sacramento Valley and the northern Sierra as of Monday morning. This is the area of greatest concern through this afternoon and evening as well.
More than 5 inches of rain has fallen in the 24 hours ending 6 a.m. PST in Sonoma County at Leghorn Stream. Big Sur in Monterey County picked up more than 3 inches of rain in that time. Some western slope areas of the northern Sierra have seen 1-3 inches of rain so far. Mudslides have been reported in both Marin and Santa Cruz Counties. (Read more)
- Father we ask for mercy upon the residents of California, and a move of Your Spirit in the midst of this difficulty. The state has been in need of water for several years, so we ask that this solve the drought, but save the people.
- "You, O God, sent a plentiful rain, whereby You confirmed Your inheritance, when it was weary." (Psalm 68:9)

First Amendment undermined by not so free press
The news media is jeopardizing its First Amendment credibility with its irresponsible reporting and attempts to demonize anybody in disagreement with its leftist globalist agenda. The most recent news conference with President Donald Trump revealed how the delusional media views fake news. The reporter tried to blame Trump for the media's credibility problems, asking the President: "But aren't you concerned, sir, that you are undermining the people's faith in the First Amendment freedom of the press, the press in this country when you call stories you don't like "fake news"? Why not just say it's a story I don't like?" Herein, it's the press that is undermining the people's faith in the First Amendment.
Trump responded, "But I know what's good. I know what's bad. And when they change it and make it really bad--something that should be positive. Sometimes something that should be very positive, they'll make okay. They'll even make it negative. So I understand it because I'm there. I know what was said. I know who is saying it. I'm there. So it's very important to me. Look, I want to see an honest press. When I started off today by saying that it's so important to the public to get an honest press. The press -- the public doesn't believe you people anymore." In reality, the press is going wild quoting unnamed sources without verification and reporting illegally leaked information as if it were fact.
Case in point: The shadow government and deep state want panic about the possibility that Trump will deport millions of illegals. AP reported that the White House was calling up 100,000 National Guard troops to round up illegals and send them back to wherever they came from. The White House categorically denied that the report was even remotely factual. But the report was made without verifying the source or the memo the source quoted. A free press in bondage to an ideal or agenda is not free at all. The false narrative that the President is undermining the people's faith in the First Amendment by criticizing the media-is an extraordinary example of the twisted demeanor of the news media.
Exodus 20:16 states, "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor." Telling the truth is the basis of good journalism. And Truth comes from where? Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me." He goes on to say in verse 17, "Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you." These so-called journalists cannot recognize truth because it's not in them. The First Amendment, a unique guarantee of Liberty, is undermined when liars lie with impunity while disguising the lies as truth. We need to pray and act to hold accountability, especially within the "Church" where the truth should be rightly discerned and spoken of boldly that good is not considered evil.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

The Congressional Review Act
The Congressional Review Act:
This Little-Used Tool Could Help Congress Undo Years of Government Overreach
In Washington, there is a saying that regulators never met a rule they didn't like.
Federal agencies, commonly referred to these days as the "fourth branch of government," have been binding the hands of the American people for decades with overreaching regulations. All the while, Congress sat idly by and let these agencies assume their new legislative role.
What if Congress could not only reverse this trend, but undo years of burdensome regulations dating as far back as the mid-1990s? It turns out it can, with the Congressional Review Act.
The Congressional Review Act is Congress' most recent effort to trim the excesses of the modern administrative state. Passed into law in 1996, the Congressional Review Act allows Congress to invalidate an agency rule by passing a joint resolution of disapproval, not subject to a Senate filibuster, that the president signs into law.
Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress is given 60 legislative days to disapprove a rule and receive the president's signature, after which the rule goes into effect. But the review act also sets forth a specific procedure for submitting new rules to Congress that executive agencies must carefully follow.
If they fail to follow these specific steps, Congress can vote to disapprove the rule even if it has long been accepted as part of the Federal Register. In other words, if the agency failed to follow its obligations under the Congressional Review Act, the 60-day legislative window never officially started, and the rule remains subject to congressional disapproval. (Read more)
- Father, we thank You for this "tool" that is already "on the books" in Congress. We pray that it be employed to remove the heavy regulations that have crippled the American economy, in Jesus' name, amen.
- "Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you." (Psalm 55:22)

"The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." (Matthew 7:25-26)
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus' Name.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Alaska's Bogoslof Volcano erupts, sends up ash cloud
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - An Alaska volcano that's been active since mid-December has erupted again.
The Alaska Volcano Observatory says Bogoslof (BOH-gohs-lawf) Volcano in the Aleutian Islands erupted just before 10 a.m. and sent an ash cloud to 25,000 feet.
Ash can harm and stop jet engines. Ash from southwest Alaska volcanos is a threat airliners operating between North America and Asia when a cloud rises above 20,000 feet.
After the eruption, the Aviation Color Code was raised from orange to red, the highest level.
The observatory says south winds are pushing the ash cloud north over the Bering Sea and no ash is expected to fall on communities. (Washington Post) Read more.

Actress Shares Incredible Miracle That Happened After Prayer for Her Dying Grandmother: "This Will FLOOR You!"
Actress Alexa PenaVega says she's witnessed a miracle brought forth with the power of prayer.
"I would like to take a moment to talk about God's amazing grace," PenaVega began a recent Instagram post.
The actress then began the most beautiful testimony:
This past week has been a struggle for my family as our beautiful abuelita (grandma) was on life support. It has been a bittersweet experience. Here is this woman who has had such a full and beautiful life ... 93 years old ...12 kids ... more than 50 grandkids ...10 great grandchildren ... just the most incredible little Colombian woman inside and out. This week her lungs collapsed. Her heart started failing. Her stomach stopped working and she fell into a coma. As we all prepared ourselves to say goodbye my family's local church members came to her side and prayed over her for over five hours.
When I say the power of prayer can bring forth the most amazing miracles THIS WILL FLOOR YOU. Our abuelita Yeya woke up completely healed. The Dr.'s cannot find anything wrong with her. They can't explain it. They keep running tests to try to make sense of it all. But we know . . . God's grace is what healed her. It is miracles like this that remind me of how great our God is. Thankful for every extra day we get to live. blessings
