1. Palestinian terrorists make 4th attempt in recent weeks to attack Israeli court - World Israel News

A Palestinian terrorist attempted to attack a military court in Samaria on Sunday, but Israeli forces securing the compound were successful in thwarting the attack.

The terrorist arrived at the courthouse, where he aroused suspicion. A brief investigation revealed a hidden bag near the court that contained a Carlo submachine gun.

The court was briefly shut down. No one was injured in the incident. The terrorist, 19, from Shechem (Nablus), was arrested and taken for questioning.

This is at least the eighth failed attempt by Palestinians to attack this target, and the fourth attempt in recent weeks. The latest occurred on Wednesday.

IDF fighter jets overnight Sunday attacked an underground infrastructure in southern Gaza, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said. According to the statement, the attack was carried out in response to Sunday evening's rocket fire towards Israeli territory.

"The IDF will continue to act in order to ensure security for the citizens of Israel, by all means at its disposal. Hamas is responsible for everything happening inside and outside of the Gaza Strip, above and below the ground," the IDF Spokesman said.

At about 9:50 p.m., the "Color Red" siren was sounded in Sderot and several communities in the Shaar Hanegev area. The IDF later said that it had identified a rocket that had been fired from Gaza into Israeli territory.

3. Israel Announces Deal to Sell $15 Billion Worth of Natural Gas to Egypt - United with Israel

Delek and its U.S. partner, Noble Energy, signed a deal Monday to sell a total of 64 billion cubic meters of gas over a 10-year period to Egyptian company Dolphinus Holdings.

"I welcome the historic agreement that was announced on the export of Israeli gas to Egypt. This will put billions into the state treasury to benefit the education, health and social welfare of Israel's citizens," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

"Many people did not believe in the gas outline," he added. "We led it knowing that it would strengthen our security, economy and regional relations, but - above all - that it would strengthen Israel's citizens. This is a joyous day."

4. Lapid: Netanyahu must 'step aside' temporarily until legal woes resolved - Times of Israel

Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid said Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu need not resign over police recommendations he stand trial for corruption offenses including bribery, but must "step aside" for a time in order to fight his legal battles.

He was speaking just days after police recommended charges against the prime minister in two separate graft probes and as law enforcement were reportedly gearing up to interrogate Netanyahu in a third case.

Addressing the Conference of Presidents' of Major Jewish Organizations in Jerusalem, and later at his party's faction meeting in the Knesset, Lapid proposed a scenario whereby Netanayahu would take a temporary leave of absence until the allegations are "resolved."

5. Terror plot to assassinate Israeli defense minister thwarted - Jerusalem Post

A plot to assassinate Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has been thwarted by Israel's Shin Bet security agency.

According to a statement cleared for publication on Sunday morning, an Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist cell was planning to place a bomb on a West Bank road on which Liberman's convoy was scheduled travel. The investigation revealed that one cell member's family will receive a prisoner's pension from Islamic Jihad.

The Daily Brief

1. Trump motorcade driver detained by Secret Service after gun discovered - Fox News

The Secret Service said Monday it detained someone scheduled to drive a press van in President Trump's motorcade in Florida after agents discovered a personal firearm during a security check. "All Secret Service security measures worked," the agency said in a statement, stressing that nobody under their protection was ever in any danger. The incident occurred Monday in Palm Beach, where Trump was spending Presidents Day at his resort.

According to the agency, the unnamed individual was a "staff contracted driver" who was found to be "in lawful possession of a prohibited item." It occurred outside the secure area at a Secret Service security screening checkpoint. The Secret Service said they investigated and resolved the incident with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. The agency said the driver was only detained briefly. "At no time was any Secret Service protectee in danger or impacted," it said. (Read more)

- Father, we must continue to ask for Your mercy and protection over President Trump. Though this man was lawfully in possession of a firearm, the proximity to the President was disturbing.

- "No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling."

2. Trump Supports Efforts to Improve the Federal Background Check System - CNSNews.com

President Donald Trump supports a bipartisan bill by Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) that would improve the background check system, the White House said Monday.

"The President spoke to Senator Cornyn on Friday about the bi-partisan bill he and Sen. Murphy introduced to improve Federal Compliance with Criminal Background check Legislation. While discussions are ongoing and revisions are being considered, the President is supportive of efforts to improve the Federal background check system," White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

The Fix NICS Act (S.2135), which was introduced in November 2017, has 35 co-sponsors, including Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Md.), Tim Scott (R-S.C.), and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.).

It penalizes federal agencies who fail to properly report relevant records and incentivizes states to improve their overall reporting. The bill also directs more federal funding to the accurate reporting of domestic violence records, according to a press release by Feinstein's office. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You that, as we pray for our president to be granted Your wisdom, You will and do answer that prayer. Praise You, Father, in Your name, amen.

3. Sen. Lankford: 'They Saw Something, They Said Something. And Nothing Was Done' - CNSNews.com

Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said all the warning signs were there before a troubled 19-year-old opened fire in a Parkland, Florida high school, killing 17 people, 14 of them students.

"And people in Parkland and all across the country have every reason to be grieved and incredibly furious," Lankford told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "Social Services was in this home more than 20 times. Expelled from school, posted online, went into a school shooting, had warned the FBI. This person was dangerous. And nothing was done," Lankford said.

"All the warning signs were there. The community did all the things that the community should do to be able to engage. They saw something, they said something. And nothing was done."

The senator noted that he has signed on to bipartisan legislation to fix the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). The bill, sponsored by Sen. John Cornyn, is called "Fix NICS."

"That is the first thing of multiple things that need to be done," Lankford said. "That is, fixing our background check system to make sure that all information is actually getting in there."

Lankford said some state and federal agencies are not inputting the necessary information into NICS, and that "absolutely needs to be fixed." (Read more)

- Father, we thank You that both the President and a bipartisan coalition in the Senate are ready to pass this legislation, that will strengthen the system of running background checks on those who would purchase guns. Thank You, Lord, amen.

- "Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord." (Psalm 150:6)

4. 6-year-old boy among 4 people shot outside Texas Roadhouse in San Antonio - Dallas News

A 6-year-old boy was among four people shot Sunday evening in the parking lot of a Texas Roadhouse restaurant in San Antonio. Two adults have life-threatening injuries, the San Antonio Express-News reported. The boy was shot in the leg, and his injury isn't expected to be life-threatening, the paper reported. The group was waiting outside the restaurant to eat when the shooting occurred, police said.

"We do not believe that this shooting was random," San Antonio police Chief William McManus told the Express-News. "There's details I'm not gonna give out because it's part of the investigation. But we do not believe it's random."

All of the victims were taken to a nearby hospital. Two are in critical condition and the other two are stable, police said. (Read more)

- Father, this appears to be a targeted attack and not a random one. We pray for this family and ask Your intervention and Presence. We pray for a move of Your Spirit in their hearts, as well as in the hearts of the perpetrator(s).

- "If you, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You , that You may be feared." (Psalm 130:3,4)

5. Pennsylvania Supreme Court issues new congressional map, which could benefit Dems - Fox News

Pennsylvania's high court issued a new congressional district map for the state's 2018 elections Monday, the latest attempt to carve out voting boundaries in time for the state's May 15 primary.

The map, approved in a 4-3 decision by the Democratic-majority state Supreme Court, is expected to give Democrats a better shot at winning seats in Philadelphia's heavily populated and moderate suburbs, where Republicans had held seats in bizarrely contorted districts, including one labeled "Goofy Kicking Donald Duck."

Republicans said they would challenge the new boundaries in federal court this week, but did not specify what type of legal remedy they would seek or whether they would appeal to a district court of the U.S. Supreme Court. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask that this map not be adopted so close to an election. We pray for a court ruling to protect the integrity of the voting process in Pennsylvania.

- "Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O Lord, and that a foolish people has blasphemed Your Name." (Psalm 74:18)

6. Congressional oversight weeds out corrupt international junk science - Washington Examiner

The House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology has been investigating the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a unit of the WHO, amid accusations that IARC holds secret proceedings and conducts shoddy research to reach politically-motivated conclusions. Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, who has been threatening to withhold federal funding for IARC, twice asked IARC to testify at a hearing to explain itself. IARC refused to send an official to answer questions at a February 6 hearing. The agency has received more than $48 million in U.S. tax dollars via the National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. is the WHO's largest donor.

Congress is asking questions because IARC's findings on the carcinogenicity of certain chemicals, personal behaviors, and environmental factors often diverge from mainstream science. Chairman Smith warned at the hearing that the "selective use of data and the lack of public disclosure raise questions about why IARC should receive any government funding in the future." One of IARCs most disputed reports is highly suspect; its 2015 assessment declared glyphosate, the world's most widely-used herbicide, is a "probable human carcinogen."

It's the only major scientific organization to reach that conclusion. Subsequent studies, including a major review issued by the Environmental Protection Agency in December, found no link between glyphosate and cancer. Glyphosate is controversial because it's the main herbicide used on several genetically engineered crops - called Roundup Ready - that have been developed to withstand the chemical without harming the plant. It was developed by Monsanto, the bĂȘte noire of the global environmental movement. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask that You stop these companies from creating dangerous new products both for humans and all of Your creation.

- "So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found none." (Ezekiel 22:30)

7. Mike Pence, Tim Tebow, Tony Dungy have all been 'Christian Shamed.' This ugly form of bigotry must stop - Fox News

Is believing in God a sign of mental illness? Is praying a silly exercise in make-believe - just a big waste of time and a delusional activity?

I certainly don't think so, nor do most Americans. But on Tuesday, panelists on "The View" on ABC TV mocked Vice President Mike Pence for his Christian faith, calling it "scary" and even saying that his religious beliefs are a kind of "mental illness."

Such comments are an insult to everyone who holds sincere religious beliefs.

The vice president - a deeply religious man - responded Wednesday to the attack, saying at an event sponsored by Axios: "It's just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance." Pence added that criticism of anyone who is religiously observant shows how "out of touch some in the mainstream media are."

Pence is right. No matter what you think of his politics, his views on public policy issues, or his performance in elective office, he should not be criticized for his Christian beliefs. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for Your people to be granted renewed strength and faith to stand strong in the midst of these outrageous attacks. Thank You especially for Vice President Pence, who has been a stalwart defender of the faith. We loose Your Holy Spirit over these enemies of our faith, to bring them to their knees in repentance.

- " . . . above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one." (Ephesians 6:16)

" . . . that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:10,11)

8. North Korea's failed Olympians hope to avoid dangerous consequences - Fox News

As North Koreans return home this week from the Pyeongchang Winter Games, possibly without any medals, Olympians hope to avoid the gulags - a fate the losers of the 1966 World Cup are believed to have experienced. Twenty-two North Koreans participated in the 2018 Olympics, with the support of the nation's handpicked cheering squad, for the regime's ninth representation in the Winter Games.

Competing in figure skating, skiing and ice hockey - as part of a joint team with South Korea - the country has failed to medal in any event, surely disappointing leader Kim Jong Un, whose family allegedly sentenced the failed World Cup athletes to concentration camps for the loss. (Read more)

- Father, for these athletes, we ask Your mercy, wisdom, and a way to escape from being punished just for losing. May Your Spirit hover near them, changing their minds and hearts,and guide them as clearly as You guided Joseph and Mary so long ago.

- "For God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you." (Psalm 53:5c)

9. U.S. seeks European commitment to 'improve' Iran nuclear deal - Jerusalem Post

State Department officials are seeking a commitment from their European counterparts that they will work to "improve" the Iran nuclear deal over an undetermined period of time - a request short of the concrete and swift policy changes demanded of them by US President Donald Trump last month.

According to a diplomatic cable seen by Reuters, US officials are asking the governments of Britain, France and Germany to commit to "work together to seek a supplemental or follow-on agreement" to the 2015 international deal governing Iran's nuclear program "that addresses Iran's development or testing long-range missiles, ensures strong [International Atomic Energy Agency] inspections, and fixes the flaws of the 'sunset clause.'"

It is a departure from the president's initial request of the "E3" powers. In January, Trump announced that he was waiving nuclear-related sanctions on Iran for the "last time," and that he would allow them to enter back into effect in 120 days if Europe fails to adopt a dramatically new posture on the nuclear agreement.

"This is a last chance," Trump warned.

"In the absence of such an agreement, the United States will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal. And if at any time I judge that such an agreement is not within reach, I will withdraw from the deal immediately." (Read more)

- Father God, we ask that the eyes of these European leaders be opened to see the real threat that the nation of Iran poses to every nation on earth. We ask that they honor the leadership of President Trump in revising this Iranian nuclear deal, in Your name, amen.

- "When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him." (Proverbs 16:7)

10. Kansas GOP Affirms 'God's Design for Gender,' Opposes Transgender Identity in New Resolution - Christian Post

The Republican Party in the state of Kansas on Saturday moved to affirm "God's design for gender as determined by biological sex," not "self-perception." The Republican Party's state committee in the Sunflower State passed a resolution on human sexuality at the state Republican convention over the weekend that states direct opposition of "all efforts to validate transgender identity." The resolution not only affirms "God's design for gender" but also expresses opposition to hormone therapy and surgical methods to help transgender people alter their bodies to match their "perceived gender identity." (Read more)

- Father God, we thank You for the passage of this resolution in the State of Kansas. Father, whenever any governing body, anywhere, takes action that aligns with Your Word, we give thanks, in Your name, amen.

- "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven, amen."

Washington prophesied a divided America 221 years ago

America's first President, George Washington, articulated a vision for the United States in his farewell address given in September 1796 that did not include political parties or class warfare--two ingredients that have culminated in a divided nation just as Washington prophesied 221 years ago. Washington said, "Citizens, by birth or choice, of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles."

How far have "We the People" strayed from this statement? In the name of progress, we have become a nation without pride of patriotism. We have so many religions and versions of religions that we have barely no religion at all. We are actually celebrating diverse manners and habits. We are a divided nation where some cling to Constitutional principles and others undermine it with their justification that man progresses and so, too, should the Constitution. By Washington's standards, we have lost our bearing on what it is to be an American--that citizens assimilate the national properties of religion, manners, habits and political principles rather than becoming a melting pot of diverse beliefs and practices.

Washington believed that allowing political parties would be a divisive and dangerous act to liberty and limited government. He warned, "You cannot shield yourselves too much against the jealousies and heartburnings which spring from these misrepresentations; they tend to render alien to each other those who ought to be bound together by fraternal affection...they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion."

Washington believed an inoculation against the undermining of political parties was electing moral and religious leaders. He said, "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them." As Exodus 18:21 says regarding good government: "provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness..." Something to contemplate as we celebrate Washington's birth.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Classic Hymns


"At night His song is with me." (Psalm 42:8)


The day Thou gavest, Lord, is ended, The darkness falls at Thy behest; To Thee our morning hymns ascended, Thy praise shall sanctify our rest.

We thank Thee that Thy church, unsleeping, While earth rolls onward into light, Through all the world her watch is keeping, And rests not now by day or night.

As o'er each continent and island The dawn leads on another day, The voice of prayer is never silent, Nor dies the strain of praise away.

The sun that bids us rest is waking Our brethren 'neath the western sky, And hour by hour fresh lips are making Thy wondrous doings heard on high.

So be it, Lord; Thy throne shall never, Like earth's proud empires, pass away: Thy kingdom stands, and grows forever, Till all Thy creatures own Thy sway.

1812 Earthquake causes Mississippi River Tsunami to flow backwards

The most violent of a series of earthquakes near Missouri causes a so-called fluvial tsunami in the Mississippi River, actually making the river run backward for several hours. The series of tremors, which took place between December 1811 and March 1812, were the most powerful in the history of the United States.

The unusual seismic activity began at about 2 a.m. on December 16, 1811, when a strong tremor rocked the New Madrid region. The city of New Madrid, located near the Mississippi River, had about 1,000 residents at the time, mostly farmers, hunters and fur trappers.

At 7:15 a.m., an even more powerful quake erupted, now estimated to have had a magnitude of 8.6. This tremor literally knocked people off their feet and many people experienced nausea from the extensive rolling of the earth. Given that the area was sparsely populated and there weren't many multi-story structures, the death toll was relatively low. However, the quake did cause landslides that destroyed several communities, including Little Prairie, Missouri.

The earthquake also caused fissures-some as much as several hundred feet long-to open on the earth's surface. Large trees were snapped in two. Sulfur leaked out from underground pockets and river banks vanished, flooding thousands of acres of forests. On January 23, 1812, an estimated 8.4-magnitude quake struck in nearly the same location, causing disastrous effects. Reportedly, the president's wife, Dolley Madison, was awoken by the tremor in Washington, D.C. Fortunately, the death toll was smaller, as most of the survivors of the first earthquake were now living in tents, in which they could not be crushed.
The strongest of the tremors followed on February 7. This one was estimated at an amazing 8.8-magnitude and was probably one of the strongest quakes in human history. Church bells rang in Boston, thousands of miles away, from the shaking. Brick walls were toppled in Cincinnati. In the Mississippi River, water turned brown and whirlpools developed suddenly from the depressions created in the riverbed. Waterfalls were created in an instant; in one report, 30 boats were helplessly thrown over falls, killing the people on board. Many of the small islands in the middle of the river, often used as bases by river pirates, permanently disappeared. Large lakes, such as Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee and Big Lake at the Arkansas-Missouri state line, were created by the earthquake as river water poured into new depressions.

This series of large earthquakes ended in March, although there were aftershocks for a few more years. In all, it is believed that approximately 1,000 people died because of the earthquakes, though an accurate count is difficult to determine because of a lack of an accurate record of the Native American population in the area at the time.

President's Day: This Native American Prophecy is Stunningly, Accurate in Describing How God's Hand Rested on George Washington

During this time, two horses were shot out from under [Washington] and his clothes were shredded with bullets. He emerged unscathed and gave glory to God, saying, "I was saved by the miraculous care of Providence that saved me beyond human expectation." From that day, his reputation for bravery and leadership spread among both the English and the Native Americans.

[CharismaNews.com] "He cannot die in battle. The Great Spirit protects that man and guides his destinies. He will become chief of nations, and a people yet unborn will hail him the founder of a mighty nation."

These words were spoken by an old Native American chief concerning George Washington several years before the Declaration of Independence. He spoke these words as he reminisced with Washington and others about a battle, 15 years previous, when they were on opposite sides during the French and Indian Wars.

The Chief Saw God's Hand on Washington It was the Battle of Fort Duquesne in July 1755 when 1,459 British soldiers were ambushed by a large contingent of Native American warriors who had joined the French in their fight with the British for control of the North American continent.

It proved to be one of the bloodiest days in Anglo-American history with 977 British soldiers killed or wounded. It was a day, however, when Washington's reputation for bravery began to spread throughout the land.
