Another Call to Fast and to Pray

Another Call to Fast and to Pray
For the Successful Outcome of This
Week's Ministerial for Religious Freedom

Saturday, Sunday and Monday:
July 28, 29, 30

Dear Prayer Partners,

As we approach the end of this week, we are about to witness the culmination of a truly historic event now taking place in Washington, D.C.: The Ministerial for Religious Freedom.

Because this has been such a groundbreaking event, with 90 nations forming a global alliance to end religious persecution worldwide, we know that our enemy would like nothing more than to "rob, steal and destroy" the seeds of truth and freedom that were planted among us this week.
Our desire is to see that the vision to end religious persecution be brought home to these 90 nations, by the delegates who have attended these workshops; and for strategies and support networks to be set in place to achieve exactly that.
In order to "secure this work," Capitol Hill Prayer Partners is caling all of our intercessors to seek the Lord in this hour: is He calling you to enter into a hidden fast (the nature of your own choosing) for the three days following this event to see these results achieved?
As you seek His face in this matter, we bring you a truly encouraging word:
As you recall, one week ago, we joined other ministry teams to fast IN ADVANCE of the Ministerial . . . to "prepare the way of the Lord" for His will to be done on earth through this conference, as it is in heaven.
> > > The GOOD NEWS is that, following those three days of fasting, one of the key leaders in the Ministerial got word back to us that, after we began to pray, his heart was greatly strengthened, his JOY returned unto him, and he began to experience a number of BREAKTHROUGHS in the last-minute planning for this event. And so, he wanted to say "thank you" to all of you who have participated in that time of fasting.
As we look towards this weekend, then, we will COMPLETE this fast unto our Lord, leaving the results in His Hands.

"Is this not the fast which I choose, To loosen the bonds of wickedness, To undo the bands of the yoke, And to let the oppressed go free And break every yoke?" (Isaiah 58:6)

Thank you!

There are two days remaining in this Ministerial: today and tomorrow. To view the exact agenda planned to take place both days, go here.

Focus on Israel

1. Israel braces for UN meeting on controversial nation-state law - Israel Hayom

The United Nations Security Council was scheduled to convene on Tuesday to debate issues pertaining to the Middle East, and the Israeli delegation was bracing for blowback over a recently passed law defining Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.

On Monday, a preview of what can be expected at Tuesday's UNSC meeting came at a meeting of the U.N. Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, which convened at the U.N. headquarters to discuss the controversial Israeli law.

The Palestinian Authority's representative in the U.N. Riyad Mansour said, "the radical right-wing government has passed a law declaring that Israel is not a state of all its citizens by giving members of a particular religion preference."

Mansour called the law "racist, and another step toward apartheid."

"I intend to discuss the matter at length in the Security Council," he added.

In response, the army said it targeted seven Hamas military positions throughout the Gaza Strip. Hadashot news said both the Air Force and tanks opened fire on targets in the Strip.

Palestinian media reported that Israeli planes shelled various targets throughout the eastern and southern parts of the coastal enclave. A number of casualties were reported.

The Daily Brief

1. U.S. pastor on trial in Turkey transferred to house arrest: CNN Turk - Reuters

An American pastor who has been detained in Turkey for nearly two years on terrorism charges, straining ties between Ankara and Washington, has been transferred from jail to house arrest, broadcaster CNN Turk said on Wednesday. The report came one week after a Turkish court ruled to keep Andrew Brunson, a Christian pastor from North Carolina, in detention while he is tried for terrorism and espionage.

U.S. embassy and consulate officials in Turkey could not immediately comment on the report and Brunson's lawyer told Reuters he was seeking confirmation. CNN Turk said Brunson will be fixed with an electronic ankle bracelet or similar monitoring device and is banned from leaving the country.

The pastor, who has lived in Turkey for more than two decades, was indicted on charges of helping the group that Ankara blames for a failed 2016 coup against President Tayyip Erdogan, as well as supporting outlawed PKK Kurdish militants. Brunson, who denies the charges, faces up to 35 years in jail if found guilty. President Donald Trump said in a tweet last week Brunson was being held hostage and that Erdogan should "do something to free this wonderful Christian husband & father".
(Read more)

- Father, we thank You for this great news and pray for the full restoration and freedom of Pastor Brunson.

- The Lord looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven he viewed the earth, to hear the groans of the prisoners and release those condemned to death.
(Psalm 102:19-20)

2. Religious Freedom forum draws attention to persecution, false imprisonment and re-education camps - Washington Times

Religious liberty advocates from around the world converged on Washington on Tuesday to shine a light on the plight of faith groups that are persecuted by their governments. The opening day of the State Department's three-day Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom was marked by testimonials from victims of religious persecution, who shared stories of false imprisonment, re-education camps, the confiscation of religious texts and the demolition of houses of worship.

The ministerial, which runs through Thursday, was launched with the goal of highlighting "concrete outcomes that reaffirm international commitments to promote religious freedom and produce real, positive change." Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to address the summit on Thursday.

Thomas Farr, president of the Religious Freedom Institute and an adviser to the State Department on the summit, said the ministerial signals America's willingness to lead on the issue of religious freedom. "This gathering represents a historic opportunity for the United States," Mr. Farr said in a statement. "The time is now for our nation to lead a global effort in advancing this fundamental right, without which no human being, and no society, can flourish." (Read more)

- Father, as the press is compelled to cover this event, we pray each individual will be moved by the realities of religious persecution around the world and cover this topic more vigorously in the future.

- And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things. (Mark 6:34)

3. Victims of Religious Persecution Tell Their Stories at International Conference in DC - Daily Signal

The conference at the Holocaust Memorial Museum will feature survivors of persecution from across the world-Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Tibetan Buddhist, Uyghur Muslim, Yezidi-who speak about their experiences. They're from countries such as China, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Pakistan, Sudan, Turkey, and Vietnam. This first Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom is a conference of foreign ministers, with Secretary of State Michael Pompeo as host, aims to inspire global action against religious persecution and discrimination.

Former Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, President Donald Trump's international ambassador at large for religious freedom, spoke Monday about what he has seen since assuming his duties Feb. 1. In many countries, Brownback said, persecution and death are common for religious minorities. "Each and every person in their world has an unalienable right to religious freedom," Brownback, who is a Catholic, said. "They have that right. Yet, sadly, most of the people in the world live in an environment where religious restriction are significant and often deadly." Brownback vowed Monday that the "evil" persecution of and discrimination against religious minorities will be "defeated."

"I'm delighted that this administration has made this a top foreign policy priority, and we are going to push it and push it aggressively," he said. "We will use this [conference] to push religious freedom issues around the world; we will seek to find allies to push this topic forward." (Read more)

- Father, we pray You will protect the alliances and connections made at this conference. Let them be like the good seed that lands on fertile soil, multiplying thirty, sixty and one hundred times.

- Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop-some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown. (Mark 4:20)

4. Trump strikes trade deal with EU - Washington Times

President Trump struck a trade deal Wednesday with the European Union, reaping significant concessions as top EU officials moved to avoid an escalating tariff war with the U.S. The agreement seeks to eliminate all tariffs and trade barriers and eliminate all subsidies on non-auto industrial goods, which was the deal pushed by Mr. Trump. "This was a very big day for free and fair trade," Mr. Trump said in announcing the deal in the Rose Garden with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker by his side.

The deal also included the E.U. importing more U.S. soybeans, lowering industrial tariffs and working on an agreement to import more liquified natural gas (LNG) from America. Expectations of the announced deal, with reporters summoned to the Rose Garden for an announcement, sent the stock market soaring. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed more than 170 points after being down about 50 points early in the afternoon.

As he headed into the meeting, Mr. Trump shrugged off intense criticism from business leaders, farmers and his own GOP lawmakers that he was igniting a trade war that hurts the U.S. economy. The president said he was fighting to get America a better deal after decades of being taken advantage of by trading partners. "If we could have no tariffs, and no barriers, and no subsidies, the United States would be extremely pleased," he said as he met Mr. Juncker in the Oval Office. (Read more)

- Father, thank You for these concessions from the European Union. We pray this success will be followed by all of our other trade partners around the world.

- A just balance and scales belong to the Lord; all the weights of the bag are His concern. (Proverbs 16:11)

5. Amid grumbling, Republicans quietly relieved about Trump's farm aid package - Washington Examiner

Republicans on Tuesday quietly exhaled after President Trump announced $12 billion in subsidies to rescue farm country, fretting that a trade war could bankrupt the agriculture industry and cost the party seats in the midterm elections.

Republicans in Congress conceded that action was needed to mitigate the economic and political fallout from the retaliatory tariffs sparked by Trump's trade war. In major agriculture states, some of which are also key 2018 battlegrounds, free-trade Republicans reluctantly endorsed the president's intervention.

"We've got some people who are on the tip of the spear right now," Sen. Mike Rounds, R-S.D. said. "Even though we don't like the idea of having an aid package, as opposed to trade, I think most producers would say: 'We'll take what we can get to get through this thing, but we really want to get this trade thing settled.'"

Indeed, farmers tend to be big Trump supporters who back his push to extract more favorable terms from America's trading partners. They generally side with the president when he complains that other countries have taken unfair advantage of the U.S. and aren't granting American-made goods equal access to their markets. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up our farmers and all those whose livelihoods are tied to commodities and trade; we pray You will provide for them as our nation goes through this transition.

- I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil-this is the gift of God. (Ecclesiastes 3:12-13)

6. GOP lawmakers file resolution to impeach Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein - Washington Examiner

Republican lawmakers laid the groundwork for the impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday, accusing the second ranking Justice Department official who oversees special counsel Robert Mueller of obstruction by defying congressional subpoenas.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., announced Wednesday night that he had filed a resolution alongside Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, - the two are the chairmen of the House Freedom Caucus - and nine other colleagues to impeach Rosenstein. In a press release, Meadows and Jordan accused the Justice Department of withholding "embarrassing documents and information."

"The stonewalling over this last year has been just as bad or worse than under the Obama administration. Multiple times we've caught DOJ officials hiding information from Congress, withholding relevant documents, or even outright ignoring Congressional subpoenas," Meadows wrote. Jordan added: "The DOJ is keeping information from Congress. Enough is enough. It's time to hold Mr. Rosenstein accountable for blocking Congress's constitutional oversight role." (Read more)

- Father, we pray Congress will be able to exercise its' oversight authority to the full extent of the law. We pray any and all documents withheld will be immediately be made available to Congress.

- Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. (Proverbs 3:27)

7. Citing VA Reforms, Trump Cements His Bond With Veterans - RealClearPolitics

President Trump touted reforms at the Department of Veterans Affairs in a speech Tuesday at the Veterans of Foreign Wars' annual convention in Kansas City. He pointed to a new hotline for veterans at the White House, expanded private medical options and, most especially, increased accountability within the department.

Reforming the agency -- which has been beset by scandals and inefficiencies -- was among the president's top priorities when he took office. The administration first took on the task of holding VA employees accountable through the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Act, which aims to increase transparency at the agency and weed out employees who underperform. The VA MISSION Act, which stands for Maintaining Internal Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks, was a bipartisan measure drafted by Sens. Jon Tester, D-Mont., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga. Trump enthusiastically signed the bill into law last month.

Amid all these new changes comes a change in leadership as well. Newly confirmed VA Secretary Robert Wilkie officially takes the helm this week after months serving as acting secretary. He will not only oversee the implementation of the new MISSION Act but also begin the $15.8 billion project of replacing the VA's electronic health care records so it can work with the system at the Department of Defense, as well as those at private facilities. Wilkie spearheaded the deal made with an IT health company in May. (Read more)

- Father, we pray Secretary Wilkie will successfully lead the Veterans Administration and improve health care outcomes for our military families.

- 'For I will restore you to health and I will heal you of your wounds,' declares the Lord (Jeremiah 30:17a)

8. Federal Court Says Hawaii Must Allow Open Carry of Guns - FreeBeacon

A panel of judges from the Ninth Circuit court of appeals ruled on Tuesday that Hawaii's effective ban on the open carry of guns is unconstitutional. In a 2-1 ruling, the court found that the Second Amendment protects the right to openly carry a firearm in public for the purpose of self-defense. The majority reversed the lower court ruling that upheld Hawaii's effective ban on all forms of gun carry in the state.

Hawaii has long had some of the most restrictive gun-carry laws in the country. It currently employs a "may issue" gun-carry law, in which state officials may deny permits to applicants even if they've passed a background check and training requirements. According to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, Hawaii did not issue a single gun-carry permit to any civilians in 2017. The same was true in 2016. They are the only state in the country to not issue a single gun-carry permit in either year.

George Young, a native Hawaiian and Vietnam veteran, was denied a gun-carry permit in 2011 and decided to file a lawsuit against the state. After his first two attempts at legal action failed, Alan Beck, a California-based lawyer with ties to Hawaii, offered to help him with his suit on a pro bono basis. Beck credited the retired infantryman's determination for Tuesday's outcome and described Young as being "overjoyed" and "ecstatic" at the ruling.

Hawaii said it was considering its options. The Ninth Circuit panel ordered the case be sent back down to a lower court. Hawaii has the option to request the full Ninth Circuit review of the case but the state has not yet indicated what it plans to do.
(Read more)

- Father, thank You for the restoration of 2nd Amendment rights for citizens in Hawaii and throughout the 9th Circuit. We pray for continued favor before the courts if this decision is appealed.

- Many seek the ruler's favor, but justice for man comes from the Lord.
(Proverbs 29:26)

9. Trump-backed Brian Kemp defeats NRA-endorsed Casey Cagle in wild Georgia gubernatorial runoff - FoxNews

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp has won a bruising Republican runoff in the state's race for governor, leveraging a damning secret audio recording of his opponent and a last-minute Trump-Pence endorsement. Cagle's campaign was rocked by a secret recording in which he says he helped pass a "bad public-policy" bill for political gain. Kemp, who has called himself a "politically incorrect conservative," made headlines in May for running an advertisement boasting that he has a pick-up truck "in case I need to round up criminal illegals."

With Tuesday's win against Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, Kemp faces Democrat Stacey Abrams. She could become the country's first black woman governor. The race will test Democrats' assertion that changing demographics have turned the Republican stronghold into a swing state. "This is a light-red state," GOP pollster Mark Rountree said. "I don't think Georgia will be a national afterthought for either side anymore" regardless of what happens in November, Rountree adds. (Read more)

- Father, we pray Brian Kemp and Stacy Abrams will give the voters of Georgia a clear choice, communicating their individual priorities for the state. We pray, whoever wins, Georgia will have a governor who loves and serves You as well as all the people.

- How blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near to You To dwell in Your courts. We will be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple.
(Psalm 65:4)

10. Extreme weather wallops both coasts with flooding, scorching heat, wildfires - CBS News

Extreme, potentially dangerous weather is affecting large portions of the U.S. this week, with flooding in the East and heat advisories in effect across the West. In the East, a powerful coastal storm brought an onslaught of rain that pounded the mid-Atlantic and Northeast, prompting flood watches and warnings from the Carolinas all the way up to New York state. The system is now stalled, lashing parts of Pennsylvania and New York with downpours, CBS News' Tony Dokoupil reports.

The rain along the East Coast follows a weekend of absolute downpours. The National Weather Service says weather conditions are not going to let up anytime soon, with heavy rain expected through at least the middle of the week.

In the West, temperatures are expected to be even higher Tuesday, making the battle against wildfires in California all the more difficult, CBS News' Jamie Yuccas reports from Phoenix. A massive relentless wildfire keeps raging in the California Sierra, threatening hundreds of homes and burning perilously close to Yosemite National Park. More than 3,000 firefighters are confronting winds and high heat. Temperatures on the fire lines are soaring to well over 100 degrees.

It is just the beginning of a heat wave that could bring the summer's hottest temperatures so far to Southern California and Arizona. The temperature hit 120 degrees in Palm Springs and Phoenix may smash its record of 114. By Tuesday, temperatures could hit 117. (Read more)

- Father, it seems this weather is a symptom of our nation's Spiritual distress. We repent for the division and sin in our land, and pray for Your peace to cover us.

- When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever. (Proverbs 10:25)

- For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies," declares the Lord God. "Therefore, repent and live." (Ezekiel 18:32)

The Daily Jot

Blood Moon Friday

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Accuweather is forecasting that the full moon will turn blood red on Friday, July 27, "as the longest total lunar eclipse of the century takes place in the skies from Australia through Africa...For those in North America, the century's longest lunar eclipse will not be visible as it will take place during the day on Friday."Blood moons, also known as total lunar eclipses, take place about twice a year. This is not to be confused with end times prophecies of the moon turning to blood coinciding with the return of the Messiah. Many Christian teachers often point to these naturally occurring events to predict the end of times or the rapture, however, they do not meet the criteria as prophesied in the Bible.

Joel 2:31 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes." Revelation 6:12 is speaking of the Day of the Lord, and says, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood." Isaiah 13:10, also speaking of that Day of the Lord's coming, says "For the stars of heaven and its constellations shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in its going forth, and the moon shall not cause its light to shine." Many prophets, including Ezekiel, Joel, and Amos, as well as Job and John speak of the same event when the Lord returns.

While extremely interesting, the reddish moons we have seen in recent time are not the way the moon is prophesied in the day of the Lord. First, there wasn't a great earthquake. The sun did not turn as black as sackcloth, and the moon really didn't turn as blood. Jesus said in Matthew 24:29-30,"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with great power and glory."

Most importantly, the Lord has not returned after past "blood" moons. He will...eventually. I dare say, however, that there will be no doubt in the heavens when the Lord returns. It will be an awesome moment. But before he returns, there are certain events that scripture says will happen. Paul writes in Thessalonians 2, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." This is very clear: 1) don't be deceived, 2) falling away, 3) antichrist (beast) revealed, 4) sits in the temple as God. Keep watching. Keep praying. Keep reading your Bible. Keep discerning. And do not be deceived.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
Bill Wilson
