The Daily Brief

1. NC vacation island to be cleared as Earl nears - AP

Tourists on a North Carolina vacation destination island were ordered to board the ferries and head for the mainland Wednesday and more evacuations could be on the way as powerful Hurricane Earl threatened to sideswipe the East Coast.

- Father God, we pray Your hand holds back the force of this hurricane as the people cry out to the Lord God in repentance. There will no evil happen when the people repent of sin. Fulfill Your purpose and send out the message that God is God over all the earth, the seas, the oceans and the waves. Lord stand upon the waves and pour out Your Holy Spirit's conviction upon the people that many souls find Christ as their Savior. Some may not have a second chance. In Jesus Name.

- "Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." (Revelation 14:7)

2. Obama: Time To Turn The Page On Iraq - VOA

Obama has announced that the U.S. combat mission in Iraq is over. Obama said Tuesday America's new mission is to advise and assist Iraq's security forces.

- God, we bow before You with this intensely important issue that carries an intensely important hidden message that Iraq is being given back to the terrorist groups on site. Replace the Americans as they leave with the power of the Lord God Jehovah that will hold back the evil forces of terrorism. We cry out for salvation of these 28 million souls and pray God sends a strong movement and manifested presence of the Holy Spirit to take over the land of Iraq and its people. Defeat every enemy of God by the blood of Jesus. In Jesus Name.

- "My heart rejoices in the Lord, my strength is exalted in the Lord; my mouth is enlarged over my enemies; because I rejoice in Your salvation." (I Samuel 2:1)

3. As Obama declares Iraq war over, Iraqis brace for uncertainty - Washington Post

On the last day of the official U.S. combat mission in Iraq, there was no dancing in the streets, no celebratory gunfire and no sense that a milestone had been reached.

- Father, reveal Yourself to all the people in Iraq with signs and wonders, with dreams and visions, that there be no mistake who is their Savior and deliverer. By the blood of Jesus, break through all evil that would hinder them from hearing the Lord who is dressed in white and drawing them unto Him. In Jesus Name.

- "That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)

4. Problem bank list climbs to 829 - CNN

The government's list of troubled banks hit its highest level since 1993 during the second quarter, although the pace of growth continued to slow, according to a government report released Tuesday.

- God, the hidden men and women of evil organizations are controlling the world in preparation for the anti-Christ's takeover by striking at the foundation of every monetary system worldwide to crumble under their power. Their end result is that no one on the earth has the money to buy or sell without receiving the mark of the anti-Christ in his forehead, or in his hand. By taking this mark, their soul will be doomed to live in eternity without God. Father, through the blood of Jesus bind and break their power over those who name the name of Jesus. In Jesus Name.

- "And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." (Revelation 13:17)

5. Feds Appeal Order Blocking Stem Cell Research - ABC News

The Obama administration on Tuesday asked a federal judge to lift a restraining order that it says could undercut federally funded embryonic stem cell research.

- Father, may Your hand block stem cell research that involves embryos of innocent babies. The blood of Jesus be against embryonic stem cell research and against those who promote it. In Jesus Name.

- "It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and be cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones." (Luke 17:2)

6. NY temple plot suspect: "I'll kill 10 million Jews" - Ynet News

A man accused of plotting to bomb New York synagogues and shoot down military planes ranted against Jews and mused about "taking down" targets in the United States, according to audio tapes played Monday at his federal trial.

- God, this man is heaping coals of fire upon his own head when he moves against the Jews to kill them. We bind this antisemitic evil spirit under the blood of Jesus and command it to loosen its hold and release this man. Loosen the Holy Spirit to soften his heart and his mind be restored to normalcy. Disarm the enemy of insanity by the power of the name of Jesus that this man be free. In Jesus Name.

- "Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid." (Luke 8:35)

7. Will U.S. Mosque Protests Stir Global Christian Attacks? - CBN News

The controversy over the proposed mosque near Ground Zero may not only affect those in the U.S., but also Christians living in Muslim countries.

- Father, touch the ground and make it sandy within a six block radius around Ground Zero that any mosque that exists will fall to the ground and be unable to be rebuilt, and the proposals of other mosques be torn out of the planners' hands and there be mass confusion that no mosque ever be built. The blood of innocent American lives seeped into this ground and no edifice of those who shed their blood can stand, not ever. Plant the seed of the word of God on this soil. In Jesus Name.

- "And he said, What have you done? the voice of your brother's blood cries unto God from the ground." (Genesis 4:10)

8. Church Leaders Press Obama on Mideast Peace Talks - Christian Post

"We fully support your goal of ending the occupation that began in 1967 and achieving a just, lasting and comprehensive peace with a viable Palestinian state living side by side with Israel in peace and security," stated the leaders, which included the heads of the National Council of Churches, the Reformed Church in America, the National Baptist Convention of America, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

- Father God, we stand in the gap for the apostate church in America -- the church that bears Your name but does not reveal Your heart. Thank You, Lord, that you state so clearly in Your Word that Jerusalem is "the apple of your eye," and that you do promise to fight for Israel against her enemies. We ask that, instead, You hear the cries of Your remnant Bride, and we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Amen.

- [On behalf of Israel] "But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD; I say, "You are my God." My times are in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me." (Psalm 31:14-15)

9. "Peace Talks" to Begin Tomorrow in Washington - Intercessors for Israel

On September 2nd direct "peace" talks are suppose to start between Israel and the Palestinian Authority in Washington, DC, under the auspices of the Obama administration. Already there are signs that absolutely nothing will be accomplished - and that is good for both Israel and the nations who are pushing us to divide God's land.

- "For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and divided My land." (Joel 3:1-2)

The Daily Jot

The case for treason at the highest levels of government

Imagine the uproar if the US government was found to be funding the renovation of your local church, or releasing large amounts of taxpayer money to an umbrella organization of churches for pet projects? The American Civil Liberties Union would jump on that screaming "separation of church and state." The major network news programs would think they had just won broadcast awards for breaking news. Every leftist demagogue in Congress would be demanding an inquiry. There would be cries for a special prosecutor to be appointed to investigate everyone involved. But the truth is, this government, headed by the man who occupies the Oval Office, is using your money to fund Muslim jihadists.

The State Department, for example, has a list of some 26 Islamic mosque renovation projects that are being funded by your tax dollars. These projects, listed on the State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs website, are using tax dollars to rehab mosques in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Pakistan, Bulgaria, Mali, Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Tanzania, Algeria, Uganda, even in Sudan where Arab Muslims have killed all the Christians and are now killing the African Muslims. The State Department says its perfectly Constitutional because its to preserve culture, not religion. The Daily Caller writes that the US Agency for International Development has also spent millions on mosques in Egypt and Cyprus.

But that's not all. Christine Brim of the Center for Security Policy broke the story that the Department of Agriculture was to meet with 25-30 Muslim leaders of the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations on August 31. The purpose of the meeting was to show the Muslims how to gain direct access to "funding, government assistance, and resources." This organization has direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist umbrella waging "Civilization Jihad" on the United States. An extensive search of the news, White House, and USDA websites revealed no trace of the meeting, which was announced through a newsletter email by the Islamic Society of North America, a known terrorist financier.

The White House surely knows that the government is using our tax dollars to fund our enemies. Obama is attempting to hide these actions by conducting them through non traditional venues such as the Department of Agriculture and NASA. This is no less than treason. What's worse is that even though these scoundrels are playing Americans for dupes, the government watchdogs--the free press--won't report it. This makes them accessories to treason. The prophecy of the Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 3:13 is in play: "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived." Christ is the answer as He is truth. But if we do not act, is it not salt that has lost its savor?

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Prayers for the "Peace Talks"

From: Intercessors for Israel

1. Lord, the noose is tightening around the neck of Israel. We are being told that we must - for the sake of "world peace," - divide our inheritance with a people who refuse to even recognize us as the Jewish State.

- "LORD, it is nothing with You to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power. Help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on You, and in Your name we go against this multitude. O LORD, You are our God; let not man prevail against You." (2 Chr. 14:11)

2. We do thank You that according to King David in this Psalm, You are on Israel's side - as we say so!

- "If it had not been LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say . . . when men rose up against us: then they had swallowed us up quick . . . Then the waters had overwhelmed us . . . Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. Blessed be LORD, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of LORD, who made heaven and earth." (Psalms 124:1-8)

3. Break this snare that the nations are setting for Israel's negotiators - especially our Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu.

4. Help Bibi to trust and look to You more than to trust and look to the nations - especially America with its current administration.

- "Then Asa called to the LORD his God, and said, ' LORD, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us; O LORD our GOD, for we trust in YOU, and in YOUR NAME have come against this multitude. O LORD, YOU ARE OUR GOD; let not man prevail against YOU." (2Chron 14:11)

5. We ask for a strong anointing on Bibi and his negotiating team to not be manipulated or deceived by anything that happens in these talks.

- "For there is no sorcery against Jacob, Nor any divination against Israel. It now must be said of Jacob And of Israel, 'Oh, what God has done!'" (Numbers 23:23)

6. Instead, give Netanyahu supernatural clarity and insight to avoid all of the snares that will be set before him.

7. Continue to harden the already hard hearts of the PA leadership. Let Obama and his team see that they are being unreasonable and not willing to compromise one iota.

8. Wake up the believers in America to the grave danger their current political leadership is leading them into and encourage them to stand in the gap for their nation and its relationship to Your nation Israel.

- "I sought for a man . . . that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore . . .have consumed them with the fire of My wrath . . . " (Ezek. 22:30-31b)

More Israeli Orphans

The White House is gearing up for a big day tomorrow as President Obama prepares to "jump start" Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The goal of the talks is the creation of a Palestinian state that, as we are endlessly told, will "live side-by-side with Israel in peace and security." Sounds good, but if history is any guide, it isn't likely to happen.

The brutal murders yesterday of four Israeli civilians near Hebron by Hamas jihadists demonstrate why countless peace talks have not produced Middle East peace or security. Many Palestinians don't want either.

The four murdered Israelis included a couple with six children and a pregnant woman. There is evidence that the Hamas attackers videotaped the blood-soaked bodies of the victims, no doubt to use as a recruiting tool among the seething masses of Jew-haters who dream not of the creation of a Palestinian state, but the destruction of a Jewish state.

Hamas issued a statement referring to the attack on four civilians as a "heroic operation in Hebron." Several thousand cheering fanatics poured into the streets of the Hamas-ruled Gaza strip in a scene reminiscent of previous celebrations of terror attacks in Israel and on 9/11.

Jews living in Judea and Samaria mourned last night and then announced their response to Hamas' brutality: they would resume building homes for their families. A council of families in the region said, "They shoot and we build. Each does as he believes." That is a great summary of why peace is so elusive. Israelis have built a nation based on democratic values. The Palestinians have nurtured and promoted hate.

The next time you hear someone describe the proposed Palestinian state, ask him what kind of state it will be. The evidence is overwhelming that it will be "Hamastan" - dedicated to the death of Israelis and aligned with Iran, Syria and others in the ongoing war against the West. (Gary Bauer)

American Academy of Pediatrics Rejects Abstinence, Tells Members to Promote 'Safe-Sex'

Days after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services bowed to public pressure and posted a the results of favorable abstinence survey, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a policy statement Tuesday, stating it was "unwise" to promote abstinence-only education.

In its policy statement, "Sexuality, Contraception and the Media," AAP's Council on Communications and Media, indicated: "It is unwise to promote 'abstinence-only' sex education when it has been shown to be ineffective and when the media have become such an important source of information about 'non-abstinence.'"

Chad Hills, CitizenLink's sexual health and abstinence analyst, said there are positive and negative aspects of the policy statement. "Although it's commendable that the AAP policy is least recognizing – and addressing – the media's promotion of casual sex outside of marriage to teens," Hills said, "they failed to recognize the importance of parents, educators and the media in upholding a higher expected sexual standard –namely keeping sexuality within the context of marriage."

Melissa Henson, director of communications and public education at Parents Television Council, said, sex and marriage is portrayed in the media as something painful and that you have to do out of obligation. "Sexual relationships that are adulterous or that take place outside of the context of marriage are always presented in a favorable light," Henson said. "The only kind of sexual relationships that really aren't addressed on television are sexual relationships within the context of a loving and committed marriage."

Even shows that attempt to show the realities of teen sexual activity are problematic. "I have yet to see a TV show that handled these messages in a responsible way to begin with," Henson added. "It is important for parents to make it clear to their kids that there are real-world consequences that they need to be prepared to deal with." (CitizenLink)
