President Obama has authorized the call-up of as many as 1,200 National Guard troops along the U.S. border with Mexico to assist with border protection and enforcement activities there, officials say.

- Father, we cry out to You in this battle and trust You will be entreated of us because we put our trust in You. Protect our troops that none fall. Send forth the heavenly host of angels to war against the evil hosts of darkness. Take over the command and bring to a halt the demonic activities along our border. In Jesus Name.

- "Unto You, O Lord, do we lift up our soul. O my God, we trust in You: let us not be ashamed, let not our enemies triumph over us." (Psalm 25:1-2)

2. Obama's Nominee to Run Medicare: 'The Decision is Not Whether or Not We Will Ration Care - CNS News

President Barack Obama's nominee to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs Medicare, is a strong supporter of the government-run health care system in Britain, who said in a 2009 interview about Comparative Effectiveness Research: "The decision is not whether or not we will ration care--the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open."

- Lord, we ask that you instill the attitude of prevention in the minds of the people. Speak Your Word, O God, and block the implementation of this health care bill forever. This system reeks with death to the sick, the weak, the elderly. We break the forces of death and lack of care by the blood of Jesus. Set in place adequate health care and override this evil system with Your power. In Jesus Name.

Obama is facing criticism for his declaration over the weekend that he would seek a new "international order," with some questioning how much U.S. sovereignty the administration is willing to cede in exchange for more global cooperation.

- Oh God, overthrow this international order by the blood of Jesus, according to Your will. Call forth holy angels of the Most High God to fight our battles and defeat America's enemies. Expose satanic representatives and bring them down that would sell out our country in the name of global cooperation. In the Name of Jesus.

- "Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that anti-Christ shall come, even now are there many anti-christs; whereby we know that it is the last time." ( I John 2:18)

Responding to the massive BP oil spill, Congress is getting ready to quadruple -- to 32 cents a barrel -- a tax on oil used to help finance cleanups. The increase would raise nearly $11 billion over the next decade.

- God, occurrences that are happening in these end-times are getting further and further away from God, and more and more wickedness is coming over the world. BUT GOD. All things are in Your hands. You are the mighty God of the universe. Your wisdom totally exceeds the wisdom of men and we call forth Your holy wisdom to set in place what needs to be done regarding this issue. We trust You. We honor You. In Jesus Name.

- "God has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom, and has stretched out the heaven by His understanding." (Jeremiah 51:15)

5. N. Korea leader to Army: Prepare for war - Jerusalem Post

Tensions on the Korean peninsula soared Tuesday as South Korea resumed propaganda broadcasts into North Korea in retaliation for the deadly sinking of a warship, while the North's leader reportedly has ordered troops ready for combat.

By the blood of Jesus, we pull down strongholds that stir up hatred and vehement spirits. God, settle the storm by removing evil from the land. Revive the hearts to know the Lord. In Jesus Name.

"Give ear, O Lord, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of trouble I will call upon the Lord: for You will answer me." (Psalm 86:6-7)

The Daily Jot


I was driving home from church on Sunday just praising the Lord and having some intimate time with Him. And I felt Him impress upon me that things are going to get very, very serious, more so than ever before in my lifetime. And that as a watchman, I am watching over many people who are very confused and confounded even though they have the truth within their hearts through the salvation of Christ. He impressed upon me that there needs to be a revival--a Romans 12:2 revival mixed in with John 8:32 and Matthew 10:16. This is difficult to explain, but I will do my best to simplify it. The only answer to the confusion in this world is the clarity of Christ and His testament as revealed in the entirety of God's Word.

Generations of Americans have been "programmed" by society and schools in critical thinking and the dialectic. This has caused even the elect to respond to worldly issues with their own brand or interpretation of reality. In other words, try as we might, we have difficulty with absolute truth. We can justify anything, believe anything, even twist scripture and law to defend our own conclusions. But this is in line with how we have been programmed/brainwashed to arrive at conclusions and justify our actions by bending God's words or whatever we believe to meet our self indulgent emotions and actions. We are all guilty of it. Words have meaning. There is absolute truth. It is found in the Bible.

We need to be able to discern Biblical truth and will our spirit, mind and body to live it rather than having knowledge of the truth and using it to justify our day to day living. Jesus said in Matthew 10:16, "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." We as modern Christians have mastered the harmless part, but we have trouble with the wise part. This is because we have so accepted the mindset of the world that we have trouble speaking the truth, acting, living the truth, even though we know what it is. Hence, we can reason that we can tolerate, even embrace, worldly standards that go against the tenets of God even though we do not agree with them.

Romans 12:2 says, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God." We cannot accomplish this by accepting the world's standards and bending God's truth to them. Jesus said in John 8:32, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Once we are free we must not go back to bondage. But we as a people are in bondage. I propose that we initiate a Revivalution within ourselves, our families and our communities to become the light God has called us to be and to counter the culture by being the salt He told us we are. Revivalution. Think about it. I will write more later.

Congress Votes Tomorrow on Open Homosexual Behavior in the Military

Following Obama's lead, Congress is poised to pass legislation that could dramatically and negatively impact our Armed Forces.

Deceptively titled as the "Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2010" (S. 3065, H.R. 1283), it will not only repeal the current practice of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," but also the current law that forbids homosexual conduct and replace it with "a policy of nondiscrimination based on sexual orientation" so that men and women may openly engage in homosexual (and bisexual) behavior in the Armed Forces. To add further insult, this legislation is being attached to the Defense Authorization Bill, which funds the military.

A vote on this dangerous bill is likely to happen tomorrow. If the church does not rise up and contact their elected representatives, it will surely pass.

We need your help to get the word out and ask your members to take action tomorrow. So we are providing a tool to help you do just that. Click here to download a half-page Bulletin, print it out, copy it double-sided, cut down the middle, then distribute the half-sheet copies in high traffic areas. The backside of the Bulletin provides three simple action steps for your church members.

Again, a vote on repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is planned for tomorrow. Contact your elected officials and urge them to oppose the repeal and uphold the current law. Call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your Senators and Representative. Or visit and click on Contact Officials.

Time for action is short if we hope to make a difference.

Holy, Holy GOD! We come to You in the power of the resurrected Christ and plead for Your intervention in this matter. We confess our sins before You as a nation, and we repent of our iniquities.

Father God, pull down all empowerment of those in office to pass this legislation through for a vote. Put in place a mighty angel from heaven to stand guard at the gate and block its passage.

God we decree that it be forbidden from heaven. Disallow all satanic intentions and negotiations by the blood of Jesus. By Your shed blood, we ask You to dispossess master spirits and ask that You send Michael, other archangels, and the angelic host to handle any satanic resistance to the destruction of this piece of legislation. In Jesus Name, and under the Wing of His protection, we ask this prayer, amen.

"Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for this king, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there is more with us than with him: With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles." (II Chronicles 32:7-8)

2 Kings 2:19-22 (New International Version)

Healing of the Water

19 The men of the city said to Elisha, "Look, our lord, this town is well situated, as you can see, but the water is bad and the land is unproductive."
20 "Bring me a new bowl," he said, "and put salt in it." So they brought it to him.

21 Then he went out to the spring and threw the salt into it, saying, "This is what the LORD says: 'I have healed this water. Never again will it cause death or make the land unproductive.' " 22 And the water has remained wholesome to this day, according to the word Elisha had spoken.
