The mandate to form a government coalition was handed back to President Rivilin last Wednesday by Blue & White's Benny Gantz, just one day before Attorney General Mandelblit decided to indict PM Netanyahu on all charges including bribery. The baton to form a government is now passed back to the Knesset - Israel's parliament - to see whether 61 Knesset Members can agree on someone to be prime minister. If not, then Israel heads towards another election in March of next year. (Source: Intercessors for Israel)

A Victory for President Trump!

Trump Scores Major Tax-Return Win in California Supreme Court

Even in California, the law can still limit liberals.

The California Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously struck down a law passed by a rabid Democratic legislature and signed by a radical governor that would have kept President Donald Trump off the state's ballot in 2020 unless he releases five years of tax returns, according to The Associated Press.

The California Republican Party had challenged the law in state and federal courts, arguing that it violated both the state and federal constitutions.

"Today's ruling is a victory for every California voter," state Republican Party Chairwoman Jessica Patterson said in a statement, the AP reported.

"We are pleased that the courts saw through the Democrats' petty partisan maneuvers and saw this law for what it is - an unconstitutional attempt to suppress Republican voter turnout."

Harmeet Dhillon, a high-powered attorney and Republican National Committee member working on a challenge to the law in federal courts, said the decision closed the door on what would have been a road to chaos.

"We would have a Tower of Babel and a cacophony if we allowed individual states to mandate additional requirements beyond those imposed by the United States Constitution," she said, according to USA Today.

The law, she added was "clearly unconstitutional."

That's because the Constitution requires only that a president be American-born, be at least 35 years old and have lived in the country for at least 14 years. Do you think Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020?

What California wanted to do was add another layer of its own choosing on top of that - basically proving once again that its Democrats consider themselves superior to the Founding Fathers. ( Read more here.

One testimony and many narratives

Just to demonstrate how the news media twists and turns information to support their own agenda, Gordon Sondland, US Ambassador to the European Union is just one man, but two narratives emerged from his testimony before the House impeachment hearings. Associated Press posted a big headline and ran with the "impeach Trump" crowd, leading with: "The US ambassador to the European Union told an impeachment hearing Wednesday that he was following the orders of President Donald Trump in seeking a "quid pro quo" from Ukraine." But Breitbart reports that Sondland testified previously that Trump sought no "quid pro quo." Truth twisting in the wind here because of all the agendas.

AP in its sensational story reported: "Gordon Sondland - whose appearance before Congress is being watched especially closely as he was a Trump ally - said he believed the president was pressing Ukraine to investigate his potential 2020 rival Joe Biden. "We followed the president's orders," Sondland said in his prepared testimony to an open hearing of the House Intelligence Committee. "In the absence of any credible explanation for the suspension of aid, I later came to believe that the resumption of security aid would not occur until there was a public statement from Ukraine committing to the investigations of the 2016 election and Burisma, as Mr. [President's Counsel Rudi] Giuliani had demanded," he said."

A string of tweets during Sondland's testimony reported: Rep. Adam Schiff to Amb. Sondland: "This is a seminal moment in our investigation, and the evidence you have brought forward is deeply significant and troubling." State Department Spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus: "Gordon Sondland never told Secretary Pompeo that he believed the President was linking aid to investigations of political opponents. Any suggestion to the contrary is flat out false." Gov Track tweeted: Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) reviewing that Sondland says he never spoke about the investigations directly with Trump, that the investigations didn't happen and that since Trump met with Zelenskyy during the UN General Assembly that's the same as a White House meeting. Sondland agrees."

Breitbart reported Sondland testified during his closed-door deposition in early September that he called Trump directly on September 9 and asked what he wanted from Ukraine. According to Sondland, Trump told him that he wanted "nothing" from Ukraine and there was "no quid pro quo." Two testimonies, one man, many narratives. Where is the truth? The truth is that the politicians and media have their own agendas. And as Isaiah 59:13-14 says that we know them: "In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." You will not find truth in the media, it must therefore be sought from the Holy Spirit.

Operation Restoration

Operation Restoration



Once each week, on Sunday mornings and for 24 hours, join with others in OPERATION RESTORATION . . .

"Operation Restoration"

This initiative is based upon the Move of the Spirit that was launched last month during Operation Refiner's Fire. The LORD has shown us that He has used those fires to ignite the FIRE of the HOLY SPIRIT to visit our people, which He now yearns to keep burning among our people until the day of His return!

"Operation Restoration" is based on the promise of Scripture, recorded in
2 Chronicles 7:14,15.

It is written:

. . . "and if My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

"Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place."

This is a weekly Solemn Assembly, where saints can feel free to gather each Sunday, to offer prayers of repentance before our Lord, for the many sins our nation has committed before Him.

Abba so desires to hear our prayers . . . He is just waiting to heal us!

You can join us, any Sunday, beginning at 9:00 a.m. EST by calling:
Access Code: 150411#
Each week, our conference line for Operation Restoration will remain open until Monday morning at 9:00 a.m.EST -- allowing for 24 hours of nonstop prayer before our King of Kings, that He might, indeed, "heal our land." Amen.
