Focus on Israel

1. PM Netanyahu will be judged by how Israel confronts Iran militarily - Jerusalem Post

In what many described as a global public relations coup, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week delivered a televised 20-minute prime-time presentation in which he unveiled a cache of more than 100,000 nuclear-related files stolen from a secret facility in Tehran earlier this year in a covert operation by the Mossad. The spies in February 2016 reportedly discovered a warehouse located in the Shorabad district of the Iranian capital where the documentation was being stored; kept the building under surveillance for two years; and, recently, devised an operation to break into the structure and smuggle back to Israel half a ton of material in less than 24 hours. The Israeli agents are believed to have used "an expansive infrastructure within Iranian territory" to flee the country with local authorities "[hot] on their tails."

"This was perhaps the greatest intelligence operation in history, as I do not remember any instance when a complete archive was moved from one part of the world to another," Eliezer Tsafrir, former head of the Mossad station in Iran, contended to The Media Line. While he declined to elaborate further on the mission itself or the extent of Jerusalem's clandestine network in the Islamic Republic, Tsafrir stressed that "the message is clear: Israel can operate on Iranian soil, which is significant.

"Moreover, from what I know," he expounded, "the events prove that there is a principle [in Islam] called Taqiyya that the regime operates in accordance with, which means the [Mullahs] are religiously authorized to lie when it is convenient to do so." In fact, this may have been the core message of the Israeli premier's address, during which he used props and a slide-show to demonstrate that the Islamic Republic, despite its frequent denials-which, most significantly, includes not having come clean when the 2015 nuclear accord was forged with world powers-in 1999 created "Project Amad" with the specific goal of developing atomic weapons.

2. Cabinet could nix new law that allows PM to declare war without cabinet - report - Times of Israel

Following criticism and concerns it may be struck down by the High Court, the government is reportedly to reconsider the far-reaching approval it granted to the prime minister and defense minister to declare war without government approval.

The cabinet decided to reevaluate the legislation less than a week after the Knesset approved the law, Hadashot TV news reported on Sunday.

In a surprising and potentially far-reaching victory for Benjamin Netanyahu, the Knesset last Monday evening gave the prime minister the authority to declare war or order a major military operation upon consulting only the defense minister, and not via a full cabinet vote, as the law had previously required.

3. Report: Hamas offered long-term truce to Israel - Israel National News

Hamas leaders in Gaza have sent messages to Israel through various channels in recent months offering to negotiate a long-term ceasefire.

According to a report in the Israeli daily Haaretzon Monday, Hamas wants to tie the cease-fire to an easing of the partial blockade on Gaza, a green light for large-scale infrastructure projects and a prisoner exchange.

Israel has "not responded clearly" to the messages, according to Haaretz.

Hamas reportedly is more open to discussing such a cease-fire since it is in "dire and unprecedented strategic distress," the report said. In addition, reconciliation efforts between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority remain frozen in the wake of an assassination attempt in March on PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah during his visit to Gaza.

4. Abbas urges Latin America not to follow US example on embassy - Times of Israel

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas urged Latin American countries Monday night not to emulate the controversial US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

The United States is pushing ahead with plans to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv on May 14, a move that has sparked major protests by Palestinians, who consider East Jerusalem the capital of their future state. "We hope that some countries across Latin America won't go moving their embassies to Jerusalem, because that is against international law," Abbas said during a meeting with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas.

5. IDF Hits Gaza Military Targets in Response to Flaming Kites - Algemeiner

JNS.org - The Israeli army struck military targets in Gaza in response to repeat attempted arson attacks across the Gaza-Israel border.

Palestinian terrorists have been flying burning kites loaded with fuel into Israel in the attempt to start large brush fires at the start of Israel's dry summer season. On such kite sent into Israel by Gazans on Friday started a fire close to Kibbutz Kissufim. On Wednesday, dozens of acres of grasslands and agricultural fields were destroyed.

The Israel Defense Forces reported that its target was close to the security fence separating Israel and Gaza, where the "March of Return" riots initiated by the Hamas terror organization have been occurring for the past several weeks.

"The IDF will continue to operate against terror activity above and below land, and holds the Hamas terror organization responsible for all terror activities in the Gaza strip," according to an army statement released on Sunday.

The Daily Brief

1. Judge rejects Mueller's request for delay in Russian troll farm case - Politico

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team proposed that both sides file briefs on the issues of whether Concord has been properly served, with the government filing on May 25 and Concord's lawyers weighing in by June 15. Russian firm linked to Putin's chef accuses special counsel of 'pettifoggery.'

A federal judge has rejected special counsel Robert Mueller's request to delay the first court hearing in a criminal case charging three Russian companies and 13 Russian citizens with using social media and other means to foment strife among Americans in advance of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In a brief order Saturday evening, U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich offered no explanation for her decision to deny a request prosecutors made Friday to put off the scheduled Wednesdayarraignment for Concord Management and Consulting, one of the three firms charged in the case.

The 13 people charged in the high-profile indictment in February are considered unlikely to ever appear in a U.S. court. The three businesses accused of facilitating the alleged Russian troll farm operation - the Internet Research Agency, Concord Management, and Concord Catering - were also expected to simply ignore the American criminal proceedings. Last month, however, a pair of Washington-area lawyers suddenly surfaced in the case, notifying the court that they represent Concord Management. POLITICO reported at the time that the move appeared to be a bid to force Mueller's team to turn over relevant evidence to the Russian firm and perhaps even to bait prosecutors into an embarrassing dismissal in order to avoid disclosing sensitive information. (Read more)

- Father, we pray that Mueller's team would comply with all legal requests, and that the investigation will be drawn to a rapid close. We pray for exposure of any and all hidden lies either on the part of our side or the Russians.

- "For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish." (Psalm 1:6)

2. Republican House Armed Service chair warns Trump against leaving Iran deal - Reuters

The Republican leader of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee said President Trump should not walk away from the Iran nuclear deal. President Donald Trump is facing a May 12 deadline on whether to re-impose sanctions against Iran. Texas Congressman Mac Thornberry said on Fox News Sunday it would be a mistake for Trump to scuttle the nuclear accord reached with Tehran. "I would counsel against it," he said.

As Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Thornberry is considered a key Republican voice on national security issues. Thornberry said that while he was opposed to the deal when it was signed by the Obama Administration in 2015, exiting the agreement now would erode Washington's leverage against Tehran. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask that You advise President Trump and that any other voices would be silenced after word came that the Nuclear Deal was based on lies. We ask for him to have wisdom and understanding.

- "Let your heart retain my words, keep my commandments and live." (Proverbs 4:4)

3. WH says Gina Haspel CIA nomination 'won't be derailed by partisan critics' after reports she offered to withdraw - Fox News

The White House is standing behind President Trump's nomination of Gina Haspel to run the CIA, saying Sunday that "partisan critics" would not torpedo the president's pick. The administration's response came after multiple reports said Haspel offered to withdraw her nomination Friday. Fox News could not independently verify those reports. Raj Shah, a White House spokesman, called Haspel a highly qualified nominee. "Her nomination will not be derailed by partisan critics who side with the ACLU over the CIA on how to keep the American people safe," he said. A senior White House official also said Sunday that Haspel will not withdraw her nomination. Meantime, a former senior intelligence official said there had been a lack of visible support from the White House until this weekend. Her confirmation hearing in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee is set for Wednesday. Haspel, who would be the first woman to lead the CIA, is the first career operations officer to be nominated to lead the agency in decades. She served almost entirely undercover and much of her record is classified. Many Democrats have said she should be disqualified because she was the chief of base at a covert detention site in Thailand where two terrorism suspects were subjected to waterboarding, a technique that simulates drowning. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for You to move for Ms. Haspel if she indeed is the one You have chosen to lead the CIA. The obstruction of all of Trump nominees needs to be stopped.

- "You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear." (Psalm 10: 17b)

4. Trump backs bipartisan House push for congressional term limits - Fox News

A bipartisan group of House freshmen is reviving the idea of congressional term limits and now has the support of President Trump, who campaigned on the issue in 2016.

The move is being led by Wisconsin GOP Rep. Mike Gallagher, a Marine Corps veteran who on Sunday said the group's recent White House meeting with the president was a success, while acknowledging long odds for such a change.

"I feel the meeting went extremely well," Gallagher told Fox News' "America's News HQ" on Sunday. "The president seemed highly supportive. And he said he was genuinely impressed with the enthusiasm of the group."

Gallagher and four other House freshmen were invited to the White House to talk about their idea, each having supported various term-limit proposals in the past, a Gallagher spokeswoman told Fox News on Monday.

Gallagher says he drew inspiration for the proposal -- which essentially keeps elected officials from becoming career politicians -- from his time in the military, "where people worked together to get a difficult job done." (Read more)

- Lord, grant us the ability to have legislators who are focused on the good of America rather than keeping power.

5. Rosie O'Donnell's campaign donations to Dems went over legal limit - NY Post

Rosie O'Donnell made illegally over-sized campaign donations to at least five Democratic federal candidates, according to a Post analysis of campaign filings. The liberal comedian has regularly broken Federal Election Commission rules limiting the total any one person can give to an individual candidate at $2,700 per election. The limit applies separately to primaries, runoffs and general elections.

"Nothing nefarious," the outspoken star and Donald Trump arch-nemesis wrote in an email to the Post. "I was not choosing to over donate.

"If 2700 is the cut off - [candidates] should refund the money," she wrote. "I don't look to see who I can donate most to . . . I just donate assuming they do not accept what is over the limit."

O'Donnell said she donates often, and uses the online liberal fundraising platform ActBlue. "My anxiety is quelled by donating to those opposing trump [and] his agenda - especially at night - when most of these were placed." (Read more)

- Lord, we pray for You to convict this woman's heart of her sin in all her ways.

- "And when he has come, He will convict the world of sin and or righteousness, and of judgment." (John 16:8)

6. Melania Trump unveils 'Be Best' initiative to help kids - Fox News

First lady Melania Trump on Monday unveiled her new platform of initiatives to help kids, saying her "Be Best" campaign will focus on addressing the well-being of children, social media use and opioid abuse. "We can and should be best at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life," she said during a speech in the Rose Garden, which was attended by President Trump.

The first lady said social media can both "positively and negatively" affect children. "Too often it's used in negative ways," she said. "When children learn positive online behaviors early on, social media can be used in productive ways and can affect positive change."

Trump has promised to tackle cyberbullying as first lady, hosting major online and social media companies at the White House earlier this year. She's also brought that message directly to classrooms around the country. The first lady will "highlight the importance of using social media and the internet in positive ways," her office said, pointing to a study that claims children who spend more time on new media are more likely to report mental health issues than those who spend time on other activities. (Read more)

- Thank You, Lord for a First Lady who cares deeply about children and their well being. May she be blessed in her endeavor to get the message into classrooms.

- "Many daughters have done well, but you excel them all." (Proverbs 31:29)

7. Nunes wants to hold Sessions in contempt of Congress - NY Post

A top Republican ally of President Trump said Sunday he'll push to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of Congress. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and GOP members of the House Intelligence Committee are frustrated that the Department of Justice hasn't turned over documents related to the conduct of Justice Department and FBI officials in their handling of an investigation during the 2016 presidential election. "On Thursday we discovered that they are not going to comply with our subpoena," Nunes said on "Fox and Friends Sunday." "The only thing left to do is we have to move quickly to hold the attorney general of the United States in contempt and that is what I will press for this week." (Read more)

- Father, we pray that You would move on AG Sessions to produce all documents that Congress has requested.

- "Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, nor His ear heavy that it cannot hear." (Isaiah 59:1)

8. South Carolina Senate Approves Bill Banning 97 Percent of Abortions - Christian headlines

The South Carolina Senate approved a measure this week that would ban about 97 percent of abortions in the state. The proposal amends a bill that already bans dismemberment abortions. The new measure bans all abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or threats to the mother's life, according to The State. Senators voted 28-10 to approve the proposal. The measure needs one more vote of approval before it can be sent to the state House for consideration. It's expected that the bill will bring opposition from abortion activists. If they challenge the proposal, lawmakers say that will be an opportunity to also challenge and overturn Roe v. Wade. "It's designed to give the court an opportunity to revisit Roe v. Wade," state Senate Majority Leader Shane Massey. Reports say that the proposal would ban about 97 percent of abortions in the state. There are about 5,700 abortions each year in South Carolina, says democratic state Sen. Brad Hutto. (Read more)

- Father, we are continually grieved over the shedding of innocent blood in our land. We pray that You would protect this proposal from those who harp against saving the lives of babies. Grant them a victory, Lord!

- "But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
(1 Corinthians 15:57)

9. Spy agency NSA triples collection of U.S. phone records: official report - Reuters

The U.S. National Security Agency collected 534 million records of phone calls and text messages of Americans last year, more than triple gathered in 2016, a U.S. intelligence agency report released on Friday said. The sharp increase from 151 million occurred during the second full year of a new surveillance system established at the spy agency after U.S. lawmakers passed a law in 2015 that sought to limit its ability to collect such records in bulk. The spike in collection of call records coincided with an increase reported on Friday across other surveillance methods, raising questions from some privacy advocates who are concerned about potential government overreach and intrusion into the lives of U.S. citizens. The 2017 call records tally remained far less than an estimated billions of records collected per day under the NSA's old bulk surveillance system, which was exposed by former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden in 2013. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that You will move to protect Americans from the intrusion of the government into our lives. We must have security, but not to the point of unnecessary intrusion. Let them hear nothing that they are not supposed to hear.

- "Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive." (Matthew 13:14)

The Daily Jot

​​​​​​​​​​Your journey as a witness

The Daily Jot 5.7.18 Your journey as a witness Remember when we were younger, we would play doctor, or cowboy or house or some such thing. In this time frame, much of the "Church" is playing church. It's all about the numbers, paying the pastor, increasing the worship team, the new building fund, whatever. This keeps everybody thinking they are busy and doing something for the Lord. And they are, it's just not necessarily the Lord's best plan for them. Many have been asking me how to witness; are the "little people" able to do this, or do they have to have a big time ministry. We talk about this very subject quite a bit among our small church group. I encourage everyone to minister where they are. We are all called and empowered by the Holy Spirit to do our part.

Too many people are just playing church. They are going to services; worship like everyone else beside them; often get encouraged (with probably scripture twisted into making the preacher's point, translated: bad doctrine or eisegesis) and they come home and return to their lives. During the week, they might go to their Wednesday service, a prayer meeting or some group they belong to. It's inside the walls of the church back to inside the walls of their homes, and not much mixing with the real world. Like a good marriage, you can't just play house, you have to work at it. Same principles apply. First, be an example. Second, communicate, not in a preachy way, but in a common sense, biblical-based way. Make sense.

Creating disciples is not always knocking on doors and handling out tracts (I'm guilty-have done that a lot), but rather it's relationship building and relationship management. To me, it's heart to heart-treating others as you would like to be treated, and in doing so, making the case for Christ with words, actions, and by example. In our church, we have a man who because he was in academia, has a lot of liberal, unbelieving friends. His ministry is very difficult because he gets put down, ridiculed and ostracized. But he keeps trying-some sow, some water, some harvest. Another lady in our church works in a very diverse dental office. She gets to witness, in her way, to Jews, Muslims, and, yes, Christians. Another ministers through her contacts in the horse industry as well as to members of her family.

Yet another does hair. The people who sit in her chair get to talk about things that lead to Christ and his ways-either subtly or more direct. One man in our church witnesses quietly in his place of work. He is widely respected and asked to say the prayer now at workplace gatherings. All these outreaches count. They change peoples' lives. You can do it, too. We have to remember that God's word does not return void and that each of us is a joint that supplies according to our measure to make increase in the body. Every journey starts with the first step. We can take a step of faith, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us in pursuing God's plan for us. If you want to witness, seek the Lord and have Him show you the way that we join together in what James 1:22 says to "be doers of the word and not hearers only."

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Classic Hymns


"O Lord, how great are Thy works!" (Psalm 92:5)


O Lord my God! how great art Thou! With honor and with glory crowned; Light's dazzling splendors veil Thy brow, And gird the universe around.

Spirits and angels Thou hast made; Thy ministers a flaming fire; By Thee were earth's foundations laid; At Thy rebuke the floods retire.

Thine are the fountains of the deep; By Thee their waters swell or fail; Up to the mountain's summit creep, Or shrink beneath the lowly vale.

Thy fingers mark their utmost found; That bound the waters may not pass; Their moisture swells the teeming ground, And paints the valleys o'er with grass.

The waving harvest, Lord, is Thine; The vineyard, and the olive's juice; Corn, wine, and oil, by Thee combine, Life, gladness, beauty, produce.

The moon for seasons Thou hast made, The sun for change of day and night; Of darkness Thine the deepest shade, And Thine the day's meridian light.

O Lord, Thy works are all divine; In wisdom hast Thou made them all; Earth's teeming multitudes are Thine; Thine-peopled ocean's great and small.

All these on Thee for life depend; Thy Spirit speaks, and they are born; They gather what Thy bounties send; Thy hand of plenty fills the horn.

Thy face is hidden-they turn pale, With terror quake, with anguish burn; Their breath Thou givest to the gale; They die, and to their dust return.

And Thou, my soul, with pure delight, Thy voice to bless thy Maker raise; His praise let morning sing to night, And night to morn repeat His praise.

Historic First: Saudi Arabia Makes a Deal with the Vatican to Build Christian Churches in the Only Country without One

For the first time in history, Saudi Arabia has entered into a joint agreement with the Vatican to build churches for Christians living in the officially Muslim nation.

The agreement was signed by the Secretary General of the Muslim World League Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdel Karim Al-Issa and the President of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue in the Vatican, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, according to a report Wednesday from the Egypt Independent newspaper.

The Financial Express has reported that Saudi Arabia's newfound openness to and socio-cultural cooperation with the non-Muslim world stems from a desire to reduce dependency on oil resources, its primary economic driver.

Cardinal Tauran visited Riyadh on April 16-20, where he was received at the royal palace by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who acts as the country's prime minister as well as the custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, and his son, the crown prince Muhammad bin Salman. Tauran and his delegation also visited the Center for the Fight against Extremist Thought, and met with the current Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah Al ash-Sheikh.

We have now completed the reading of the Whole Word of God, from Genesis to Revelation . . . 36 times! We praise God for the literal hundreds who have joined us over the past year and a half to accomplish this feat, and we know that our Lord must be deeply pleased to have heard His Word read back to Him . . . 36 times.

Abba shared with us that we have now entered a NEW SEASON in our readings . . . one that would include a "seventh day rest" for the people of God.

And so, beginning this week, our Readathon WILL continue (as above) for SIX DAYS, but will be suspended on Sunday mornings, 12:01 a.m. to 6:00 a.m., that we might rest before Him and dwell in His presence, abiding even more deeply in Him.
