"Praying for All in Authority"
Friday, June 5, 2015

"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near." (Luke 21:28)

A Rainbow Over the Supreme Court
This photo of the front of the Supreme Court was taken the night before the hearings on gay marriage:

Monday, April 27, at sunset. Please remain with us in prayer over the pending decision on traditional marriage until the verdict has been rendered.

" . . . from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. . . What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." (Mark 10: 6,9)

Thank You, Lord, for watching over this Court. In Jesus' name, amen.

2. Left-wing Israeli groups received $27M from Europe over 3 years - Israel Hayom

Some 24 Israeli non-governmental political advocacy organizations dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict reported a total of nearly 105 million shekels ($27 million) in direct and indirect funding from foreign governments, especially in the European Union, from 2012 to 2014, according to an NGO Monitor report from earlier this year.

The organizations are required by Israel's NGO Transparency Law to disclose funding from foreign governmental bodies. NGO Monitor collected and analyzed the data provided about donations given directly by foreign governments and those given via governmental conduits.

According to the Foreign Ministry, many of these organizations focus on Israel's activities in Judea and Samaria, often encouraging pro-Palestinian activists and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. (Read more)

3. Netanyahu to France: Renounce the miserable actions of Orange - Jerusalem Post

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on France Thursday to distance itself from comments made by the CEO of French Telecom giant Orange which were perceived in Israel as being in support of a boycott against the Jewish state.

"I call on the French Government to renounce publicly the miserable statements and the miserable actions of a company of which it holds partial ownership," he said.

Orange CEO Stephane Richard said Wednesday he wanted to end the licensing agreement with Israeli mobile firm Partner, even though there was a huge risk of financial penalties from doing so, and that the decision was in part due to the firm's relations with Arab countries. The French government owns 25% of Orange and it is under pressure to pull out of its Israeli activities because Partner operates in the West Bank.

"I call on all of our closest allies to say in a loud and clear voice that they unconditionally oppose all types of boycott against the Jewish State," Netanyahu said Thursday. (Read more)

The Daily Brief

1. China suspected in massive breach of federal personnel data - AP

WASHINGTON -- China-based hackers are suspected of breaking into the computer networks of the U.S. government personnel office and stealing identifying information of at least 4 million federal workers, American officials said Thursday Data stolen in the recent hack of U.S. government computers includes security clearance information and background checks dating to 1985, a U.S. official said, underlining the far-reaching scale of one of the largest known thefts of federal government data. This means that they potentially have information about retirees, and they could know what they did after leaving government," said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Access to information from the breach at Office of Personnel Management computer networks, such as birthdates, Social Security numbers and bank information, could help hackers test potential passwords to other sites, including those containing information about critical weapons systems, said the official. (Read more)

- Lord, we are sad and troubled by this news of our enemy's breaching federal data of a minimum of 4 million of our citizens, for no good purpose.  Lord, surely the heart of man is always trying to find new ways to commit crimes, and use data for subversive purposes. We pray that You will continue to expose these works done in darkness, and reveal the person(s) responsible, that they may be made accountable, and the results of this travesty be neutralized. Lord, You are our Hiding Place, our identity if hidden in You! Protect us,we pray, O Lord, and bring these lawbreakers to justice, we pray.  Amen.

- "And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth. For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in [the splendor of His] glory." (Colossians 3:2-4)

2. IRS finally admits illegals can get back taxes under Obama amnesty - Washington Times

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has confirmed to Congress that illegal immigrants granted amnesty under President Obama's new programs could claim back refunds even when they never filed returns to pay their taxes in the first place. (Read more)

- Abba, how can one be due a refund of money he/she never paid?  What a strange idea.  Masses of illegal aliens (who are actually breaking the law, by even being here) are being granted amnesty by this president, and given all kinds of "perks" they have never earned.  We ask that Congress intervene and correct this policy.  So many wish to come here legitimately, and work for a living . . . may they be the ones blessed with jobs, not those who try to come in the "back door". Obviously, this is not right, but we ask for Your intervention in making it right. Surely all those here illegally, will also be encouraged to vote for those who are giving them "handouts". We ask that Your righteous judgment prevail for all concerned.  In Your Name we pray, Amen.

- "Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." (Joshua 24:14-16)  

3. Breaking! Muslim congressman sics Justice on mosque protesters - WND

'Hate speech creates a clear and present danger'

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., said in a tweet he is asking the Justice Department to launch an investigation about the legalities of a protest at a Phoenix mosque that included the participation of gun-carrying activists.. . Ellison in a tweet wrote: "@RepAndreCarson and I are asking the Obama Administration to investigate the armed rally at Phoenix mosque."

The protest Ellison was referring to occurred at the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix in late May, held in part to show solidarity with the "Draw Muhammad" contest in Texas. Approximately 250 protesters carrying American flags and depictions of the Prophet Muhammad assembled outside of the mosque that had previously been attended by the two gunmen from Phoenix who opened gunfire on the "Draw Muhammad" event. Various media outlets described the protest as heated to the point where police had to physically separate Muslims and rally participants, some of whom were armed.

Protest organizers, however, said the First Amendment guarantees them the right to rally, and police at the scene didn't dispute that fact. Still, Ellison and Carson wrote to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and asked for intervention. (Read more)

- Lord God, we come against this convoluted way of thinking, and we ask You grant the clarity of Your wisdom to those who are working to guarantee our right to free speech. We thank You, too, Lord, that this event in Phoenix did not bear the mark of violence seen in Garland, Texas; and we credit that scene of relative calm to the work of the intercessors, along with capable law enforcement officers. We do this in Jesus' name, amen and amen.

- "The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (James 5:16)

4. U.S. Productivity Falls 3.1% In First Quarter - Wall Street Journal

U.S. worker productivity fell in the opening months of 2015, underscoring an economic soft patch marked by weak business investment and tepid wage gains. The U.S. economy gained 280,000 jobs in May, while the unemployment rate rose slightly to 5.5 percent as more people began searching for jobs. Washington does not count people as unemployed unless they are actively seeking work.

Friday's report from the Labor Department says job gains occurred in business services, hotels and restaurants, and health care.  Jobs declined in the oil industry, as falling prices discouraged investment. (Read more)

- Father, we bring this whole economic situation to You.  You are our Source! We see that the gained 280,000 jobs in May, which sounds like good news, but then comes the word that the unemployment rate rose to 5.5 percent even with those additional jobs. There are still 8.7 million Americans seeking employment, as the oil industry appears to be faltering.  So many voices are now predicting economic disaster this fall for our nation.  Lord, may those who know You, look to You for Your wisdom, and creativity, and may You meet the needs of them and their families.  Give wisdom and discretion to those trying to balance a "tight budget" and provide for their families.  We praise You that You are the Answer!  Amen.

- "Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him. I have been young and now am old, yet have I not seen the [uncompromisingly] righteous forsaken or their seed begging bread. All day long they are merciful and deal graciously; they lend, and their offspring are blessed." (Psalm 37:24-26)

5. Russian Aggression, Mideast Crises Likely in G-7 Lens - VOA

Leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized countries convene their annual summit Sunday in Germany, where they're expected to discuss current crises including the wars in Iraq and Syria, and long-term issues like climate change and the economy. VOA's Al Pessin reports from London. (Read more)

- Father, we ask that You be present at this meeting on Sunday, and, as You hold the hearts of the kings in Your hand, that You will turn them to Yourself, and incline their hearts to do Your bidding.  We know so much is being discussed and decided by these industrialized countries that will have much bearing on the whole world. We are no longer an isolated country, all that we do is being watched, by friends and enemies as well. We ask for favor from You, even before those who consider us their enemies, and that they would carry forth Your will in the earth, i.e. world economy, climate change, etc. We ask in Yeshua's Name, Amen.

- "In mercy and truth Atonement is provided for iniquity; And by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil.When a man's ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice." (Proverbs 16:6-8)

6. G7 Summit Venue With a Troubled Nazi Past - Israel National News

Merkel selected Elmau Castle for Sunday summit of richest nations, but the site has a mixed past from the days of the Third Reich. Group of Seven (G7) leaders will gather from Sunday in a quintessentially German venue handpicked by Chancellor Angela Merkel, a luxury hotel with a fairytale setting and a tumultuous past. Merkel has also said that she picked the spot for the way the castle's proprietors have owned up to its Nazi-era history. (Read more)

- Lord God, we cringe even today at the word Nazi. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we break every tie between this castle and the spirit of Nazi Germany in its past to the gathering of world leaders today. Help us, Lord, to learn from the lessons of the past, and not to relive them! We ask this in Your name, amen and amen.

- "The Lord is righteous; He has cut in pieces the cords of the wicked." (Psalm 129:4)

7. G-7 Summit: Huge Security Operation Around Castle Elmau, Germany - NBC News

ELMAU, Germany - World leaders including President Barack Obama will be guarded by 17,000 police officers when they arrive high in the southern German Alps for two days of meetings at the G-7 summit this weekend.

Located at more than 3,000 feet above sea level, Castle Elmau has created special challenges for organizers of this year's global conference, which begins on Sunday. The luxury hotel is surrounded by lush green fields, dense forests and Alpine mountains and has only with only one paved road leading up to it. Major highways are shut down and temporary border posts have been set up on at least one mountain trail in Bavaria's largest ever police operation.

Police spokesman Peter Reichl said that the limited infrastructure made the location challenging for security officials. "It makes it substantially more difficult," he told NBC News. "Of course we have a tactical advantage that Castle Elmau is difficult to reach, but we also have big logistical problems." "We have prepared for all possible scenarios," he said. (Read more)

- Lord God, even though some among these world leaders may be "set" upon enacting policies that are not according to Your will, nevertheless, we cry out for them, and ask You to keep them safe, for You died for them, too. Forgive them, Lord, they know not what they do. In Jesus' name we pray, amen and amen.

- "Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst." (I Timothy 1:15)

8. UN Urges Warring Sides in E. Ukraine to Uphold Minsk Agreement - VOA

The United Nations is urging all sides in the Ukraine conflict to fully respect the cease-fire agreement reached earlier this year.

It issued the call as top U.S. defense officials and diplomats were due to meet Friday at the headquarters of U.S. European Command in Stuttgart, Germany, to review the effectiveness of EU and U.S. economic sanctions against Russia and NATO's strategy in deterring further Russian actions in Ukraine.

"We are either looking at a return to a deepening, intractable conflict or a momentary upsurge in parts of the conflict zone. We cannot afford either scenario," U.N. political chief Jeffrey Feltman told an emergency Security Council meeting Friday. (Read more)

- Father, as these top U.S. defense officials and others are gathering today in Germany, we enlist You as the Great Negotiator, we pray.  Give wisdom as to how counter Russian military actions in Ukraine.  As Defense Secretary Ash Carter confers with generals and ambassadors based in Europe, we ask that You will enable those military minds to think like You think about such issues.  If it would be prudent to change the policy, then we pray it will be changed, and be more effective than previously.  We know You care about the "affairs of men" both militarily,and in every area of life.  We thank You that You are our Counselor, and we draw on Your wisdom to solve these issues. Amen.

- "But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things], yet is himself to be put on trial and judged by no one [he can read the meaning of everything, but no one can properly discern or appraise or get an insight into  For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart." (I Corinthians 2:15,16 AMP)

9. US might deploy missiles in Europe to counter Russia - AP

The Obama administration is weighing a range of aggressive responses to Russia's alleged violation of a Cold War-era nuclear treaty, including deploying land-based missiles in Europe that could pre-emptively destroy the Russian weapons.

This "counterforce" option is among possibilities the administration is considering as it reviews its entire policy toward Russia in light of Moscow's military intervention in Ukraine, its annexation of Crimea and other actions the U.S. deems confrontational in Europe and beyond.

The options go so far as one implied - but not stated explicitly - that would improve the ability of U.S. nuclear weapons to destroy military targets on Russian territory.

It all has a certain Cold War ring, even if the White House ultimately decides to continue tolerating Russia's alleged flight-testing of a ground-launched cruise missile with a range prohibited by the treaty. (Read more)

- Abba, we thank You for bringing this violation to light, and we pray that You will give Your wisdom to those who need to address these issues.  We have also read that Russia's Putin is offering to build a second nuclear facility in Iran, further inflaming tensions and endangering many. This is a very serious situation, and one that concerns You, us, and Israel greatly. We ask for You to be present at these talks and incline the hearts of those involved to use discretion, and to protect Your people, we pray. Amen.

- "Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity.Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned [as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you]." (Colossians 4:5-6 AMP)  

The Daily Jot

New Trade Deal--evil deeds done in secret

This message from the "president" is quoted on the White House website: "My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and efffectiveness in government." Maybe the typo in the word "effectiveness" sums up the commitment. This White House is known for its secrecy from not responding to Freedom of Information Act requests to meetings with known Islamic extremists to socialist healthcare and now a secret trade bill that apparently globalizes your existence.

There is quite a bit of hype written on about the secret trade bill, well not really. There is much written about how the trade bill empowers women, but then the bait and switch to the White House trade policy being good for women. This is just an example--introduce the concept of the legislation, but then talk about policy without telling anyone what is in the legislation. That worked pretty well in passing the socialist Affordable Care Act that is neither affordable nor provides good care. This trade bill, however, must be a whopper because not even the Republicans, many who support it, are talking details--Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "we have to pass it to find out what's in it" mentality prevails.

This trade bill is likely full of items that restrict your Constitutional liberties and are an offense to your faith. One provision is reported to impact where your personal records are sent, who can view this information, and how it can be used--raising questions about privacy. There are other concerns about climate change, immigration, gay rights, and abortion. Americans need a discernment decipher ring to reveal the codes. But here is a hint: Privacy is new code for spying on you; Climate change is new code for taxing businesses and wealth redistribution; Gay rights is new code for suppression of religion and free speech; Immigration is new code for no border security; Family planning is code for abortion. Get the picture?

Most politicians see the globalization of trade as a positive socio-economic step. This is why Republicans are supporting this trade pact. There are also reports that much of the trade pact must be kept secret for five years. This is not good for anyone, especially given the Islamist Marxist sitting in the Oval Office who has routinely lied about his commitment to an "unprecedented level of openness in government." Psalm 64 speaks of the secret counsel of the wicked. Verse 5 says, "They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, Who shall see them?" We do not have to "see" to discern. We should demand accountability to prevent commitments of evil made on our behalf.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Give Somalis What They Want

Give Somalis in Minnesota What They Want . . .
The EXIT Door

Film-maker Ami Horowitz produced a 4-minute film that is gold, and gives us all a clear understanding of what we are up against in the Muslim community. Horowitz walks around Minneapolis, Minnesota on camera and asks simple questions of Muslims about America, Sharia, and Somalia. The Muslims speak their minds freely.

They say those who insult the Prophet Mohammed should be killed.

They say clearly that Sharia should be the law of the land here in America, and they would rather live in Somalia than the United States.

Fine by us. The exit door is open. Please leave.

Please take your entire families, your four wives, your culture of death, your hatred for all that is good, and your desire to conquer, and leave.

Take your Sharia, your hatred for homosexuals, your desire to kill Jews, and your love of death and leave.

Take your enslavement and beating of your women, your marriage to 7 year old girls, your murder of those who leave Islam, and your genital mutilation and get out.

Take your whining, your laziness and your desire to get from and not give to our society and go.

Take all of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders with you too. Please take all the leaders of ISNA, ICNA, MAS, MSA, CAIR, NAIT, IIIT, MPAC, USMCO, AFP, your Islamic Centers and the other thousand jihadi/terrorist organizations to Somalia with you.

While you're at it, please take all of your allies with you. Take the entire staff of MSNBC, Code Pink, the National Council of Churches, the USCCB, the entire State Department, John Boehner, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Mitch McConnell with you. America will be better off without them.

We do not want you here destroying our nation and our way of life any longer.

Please, Somali Muslims of Minneapolis, go back to Somalia as you desire.

A Critical Prayer Need for Israel

Something Else Coming In September:

A UN Resolution Establishing A Palestinian State

Published by Herbrew Nation News;
Laura Densmore, Editor

What does it mean? (Commentary from HN News editor)

Do you remember the article that Bonnie Harvey did, Do all roads lead to September? Let's do a quick recap of what those roads are, and then, let's look at what NEW roads we have to add to the list:


- The last day of the Shemitah year is 9.13.15
- There is a partial solar eclipse on this same day (9.13.15)
- The Pope visits the White House on 9.23.15 (Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur begins at sundown)
- The Pope gives the opening message to the UN General Assembly Summit on Sustainable Development (that is "code" for Agenda 21/New World Order agenda) on 9.25.15.
- The Final blood moon of the tetrad will shine on the first day of Sukkot (9.28.15) over Jerusalem.
- Isaac Newton believed the final 7 weeks of Daniel were all about the time of Yeshua's second return. If the reuniting of Jerusalem time count begins on 6.7.67 and you count 49 years (or 17,640 days) from 6.7.67, it takes you to Sept 23, 2015 (at sundown, that is Day of Atonement). . .


- The UN Security Council Vote on the Palestinian Resolution is now tentatively scheduled to happen sometime in September.

- If my Jubilee chart calculations are correct (you test and discern) . . . Sept 23 is DAY 1 of a JUBILEE year.

- In the Jubilee article above, if the calculation is correct, if the interpretation is correct, and, I could be wrong, you test and discern . . . but if it is correct, then Daniel's final 7 weeks (from Dan 9:25) is completed on the LAST DAY of this Shemitah year (9.13.15). That is a seven week, 49 year road ending this September.

One thing is certain. Once the UN Security Council takes a vote on the Palestinian resolution to declare a decree Palestinian state, if the measure is green lighted and passes, Yahweh's gavel of judgment will hit the bench and His judgment will come upon the nations for the "controversy of Zion", for dividing the land of Israel . . . Once we see this event happen on the ground, we are there . . . the year of Yahweh's Jubilee begins, with great blessing and outpouring for humble, repentant people and with vengeance coming down on the nations/peoples who are in rebellion and defiance of Yahweh.

Will the Pope be "announcing" this unveiled Palestinian resolution at the UN General Assembly? Time will tell . . .

The Enemy Within

The Enemy Within

A lot of ink has been spilled lately with stories about NSA and FBI spying tactics. But let's not forget why we are having this debate: There are evil people around the world, and increasingly around the country, who are plotting to kill us.

Francis Taylor, undersecretary of intelligence and analysis at the Department of Homeland Security, said this week that 180 Americans have joined ISIS.

The FBI director recently acknowledged that his agency is monitoring ISIS recruitment efforts in all 50 states.

National Security reporter Patrick Poole warns that there is a "metastasizing Islamic terror threat in the American homeland." Poole notes that there have been 41 domestic terror arrests already this year. "At the current pace . . . the number of cases will exceed the number from the past two years combined," he writes.

While debates about the Patriot Act and preserving privacy are important, I worry that there is not enough debate about Islamic radicalization inside the United States.

Those engaging in violent acts are a minority. But we know from polling that there is broad sympathy for violence among Muslims around the world. How much sympathy is there for extremism among Muslims here? Is anti-Semitism among U.S. Muslims as bad as it is in Europe?

How many Muslims, when they are praying five times a day, are praying for the day when America will be governed by Sharia law and not the Constitution? I don't know. Shouldn't we know? Some Muslims in Minneapolis are not shy about their desire to see Sharia subjugate America.

The fact is Islam has a problem with violence. When artists insult Jesus and the Virgin Mary, Christians simply demand that taxpayer dollars not be spent on such "art." I am not aware of any attempts by Christians to kill the artists defaming their faith.

There is a significant tradition in Islam that declares that anyone who defames Mohammad should receive the death penalty. As we saw in Texas recently, there are Muslims here willing to execute that penalty. By the way, the Boston man killed for plotting to behead cops initially planned to attack Pamela Geller.

Here's the bottom line: Americans who wish to preserve our privacy and our freedom are right to keep a watchful eye on big government. But more importantly, they should demand that our government implement commonsense immigration and national security policies. It is totally irresponsible that we do not know more about the attitudes of Muslims here and those coming into the country in record numbers. (Gary Bauer)

Pro-Life America

Pro-Life America

Here's some encouraging news in the fight for life: There is a clear pro-life majority in America.

Terry Jeffrey at CNS News reports that 37 consecutive Gallup polls conducted over the past 21 years have found that most Americans would stop most abortions.

"In the past 20 years, the percentage who say abortion should be illegal in all circumstances or all but a few circumstances has never dropped below 54%," Jeffrey writes.

And we continue to make progress at the state level. Yesterday the North Carolina state House passed legislation requiring a 72-hour waiting period for abortions, sending the bill to Governor Pat McCrory desk. Gov. McCrory said he will sign the bill.

Last week West Virginia became the 11th state to ban late-term abortions (those performed in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy) after the legislature overrode Governor Earl Ray Tomblin's veto. (Gary Bauer)

Government to Regulate Bathrooms!

Gov't: It's Our Potty and We'll Pry If We Want to

Is it a lavatory or a laboratory for social change? Depends on who you ask. Under the Obama administration, what happens in the bathroom is an issue for the boardroom, thanks to the Department of Labor. In an announcement this week, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is warning the country that it's "taking on" the issue of transgender politics -- and expects the business community to as well.

Big Brother has already been a big nuisance, piling on regulation after regulation under ObamaCare, the EPA, IRS, and now OSHA. Its latest intrusion is a memo demanding that the W.C. become P.C. by allowing workers in offices across America to use the restroom of their choosing. "Restricting employees to using only restrooms that are not consistent with their gender identity, or segregating them from other workers by requiring them to use gender-neutral or other specific restrooms, singles those employees out and may make them fear for their physical safety."
Apparently, OSHA is concerned with everyone's safety except the 99.7% of the country forced to cope with this brave new world of bathrooms. As part of the memo ("Guide to Restroom Access for Transgenders"), the agency made it clear that no proof was required to use a certain restroom -- despite the risks this all-comers policy poses. In this rush to embrace the Bruce Jenners of the world, no one seems to be talking about the real dangers these overcompensations cause.
As unnerving as a gender-free-for-all might be for workers, their fears probably have more to do with non-transgenders who might take advantage of such a policy. Giving people a license to use any bathroom is an open invitation for abuse. In a nation plagued by assault, employers may as well hang signs that say, "Sexual predators welcome!"
. . . The world is literally falling to pieces, and what is our government doing? Policing office bathrooms. No wonder America's credibility is in the tank. (Family Research Council) Read more here.

ISIS Fighter Converts to Christianity After Meeting Jesus
in a Powerful Dream: Like Apostle Paul

"Many people are now following Jesus but they keep it quiet. They haven't gone public about it. They even have church in their own home... they'll serve communion to one another as they're watching TV." -Gina Fadely

(The Middle East)-In a powerful story of redemption and grace, an Islamic State militant known for his brutal killing of Christians has converted to his victims' religion after dreaming of "a man in white" who offered him a dramatic message, according to one missionary's account.

"One of our YWAM workers in the Middle East was contacted by a friend earlier this year and they met up and he was introduced to an ISIS fighter who had killed many Christians already. I mean that's a horrible situation, and admittedly, he was probably on guard," Gina Fadely, director of Youth With A Mission Frontier Missions, Inc. (YWAM), said during a recent appearance on The Voice of the Martyrs Radio Network, Christian Post reported.

Fadely went on to reveal that the ISIS fighter confessed that prior to his conversion, he had "actually enjoyed" killing Christians.

"He told this YWAM leader that he had begun having dreams of this man in white who came to him and said, 'You are killing my people.' And he started to feel really sick and uneasy about what he was doing," Fadely continued. "The fighter said just before he killed one Christian, the man said, 'I know you will kill me, but I give to you my Bible.' The Christian was killed and this ISIS fighter actually took the Bible and began to read it. In another dream, Jesus asked him to follow Him and he was now asking to become a follower of Christ and to be discipled."
Kevin Sutter, the other YWAM director who appeared with Fadely on the VOM Radio program, shared that he has learned from one of his leaders in the Arab world that there is a "spiritual hunger" that was "unprecedented" among Muslims.

- Father God, we offer You all the praise and all the honor and all the glory for this and other stories like this. Lord God, we praise You that "multitudes are now coming to Christ, even in secret. We thank You for the dedicated and careful work of Your missionaries who have labored in this harvest field, and whose work is now being rewarded. Thank You, Abba God, in Jesus' Christ name, amen and amen!

- "All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of your name." (Psalm 66:4)

> > > Footnote: one member of our editorial team used to work with a hidden missionary group here in the States: assigned to bring the gospel to Moslems. Even then (now many years ago), she learned that -- yes -- these precious ones WERE watching The 700 Club and other Christian TV shows in the privacy and in the safety of their own homes. Hearts were turning towards our Messiah then . . . even as they are now. Praise the Lord!

Our Grandmothers' Songs

Songs Our Grandmothers Sang:


"Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for." (Hebrews 11:1-2)


Refrain Give me that old time religion
'Tis the old time religion,
'Tis the old time religion,
And it's good enough for me.

It was good for our mothers.
It was good for our mothers.
It was good for our mothers.
And it's good enough for me.


Makes me love everybody.
Makes me love everybody.
Makes me love everybody.
And it's good enough for me.


It has saved our fathers.
It has saved our fathers.
It has saved our fathers.
And it's good enough for me.


It will do when I am dying.
It will do when I am dying.
It will do when I am dying.
And it's good enough for me.


It will take us all to heaven.
It will take us all to heaven.
It will take us all to heaven.
And it's good enough for me.

About the Hymn:

Words & Music: Adapt­ed from an Af­ri­can-Amer­i­can spir­it­u­al by Charles D. Till­man, who first heard it at an 1889 camp meet­ing in Lex­ing­ton, South Car­o­li­na.

During the 1800s and early 1900s "Old Time Religion" was popular at the brush arbor meetings which would draw Christians from an entire region for a week's worth of sermons and gospel songs like "Old Time Religion."

This song was sung in the Acad­e­my Award win­ning mo­vie Ser­geant York (1941).

Two Dormant Volcanos In Arizona and Utah Struck By Rare Earthquakes,

Lots Of Energy Building On West Coast (Video)

Another dormant volcano is showing seismic activity in the Western United States.

A rare M2.7 earthquake struck in North Arizona at the long dormant Uinkaret volcanic field. The last eruption of this volcano occurred nearly 1,000 years ago (1100 A.D.).

Speaking of rare earthquakes at 1,000 year dormant volcanoes, just a few days ago (May 31st), a different earthquake struck in South Utah at the Markagunt Volcanic Plateau (just before the Oregon Earthquake swarm struck off the West coast this week).

The Markagunt volcanic plateau also has been dormant for approximately 1,000 years.

Both long dormant volcanic areas have been hit by earthquakes in the past few days, which is certainly a sign of greater unrest in the region, and possibly a sign of another larger West Coast seismic event coming in the near term.

The earthquake swarm off the coast of Oregon is occurring directly on the flanks of a large undersea unnamed dormant volcano , thus these dormant volcanoes showing movement on the West coast are a sign of building stresses below the plate. (RedFlagNews) Read more

Now, Even Civic Leaders Are Admitting The Church Has the Solution to America's Problems

(Baltimore, MD)-Mere miles away from the shot that triggered a refocus on racism in modern-day society, a small crowd gathered to determine how God's peace could reign in an age of rioting and destruction.

According to pastors, politicians and police officers, it all boils down to one thing: Faith leaders taking an active presence in their communities and being the first line of defense when chaos breaks out.

"If the moral breakdown that's at the root of that is something that we desperately need the faith-based community to inject itself into and show us leadership in bringing the flock back to the mores," says Winter Springs, Florida, Mayor Charles Lacey. "I think the establishment of a moral community is paramount to being a fundamental solution to the problem."
