Focus on Israel

1. Netanyahu promises on Instagram: Israel will not evacuate Jews from Judea and Samaria - World Israel News

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indulged his followers on the picture-sharing site Instagram on Monday evening, answering queries both big and small for as long as time allowed him.

One citizen's concern centered on whether it would be worthwhile to buy a home in Samaria, assuming that residents could be evacuated in a political deal with the Palestinians. The PM gave a simultaneously flippant and serious answer: "I try not to give tips about buying, but I promise you that we aren't evacuating villages in the Land of Israel."

Another related to his personal relationship with other heads of state, such as India. Netanyahu responded that his counterpart Narendra Modi is a close friend of his "and a close friend of the State of Israel."

Some serious questions were not directly answered. For example, asked if the situation in the northern part of the country is being addressed properly, the prime minister simply replied, "We're dealing with it all the time." (Read more)

(A comment from a reader):

The news that the Prime Minister has issued this decree that they are not going to allow any evacuation in Judea and Samaria is huge!! And, That they are going to be building an additional 650 homes in Beit El (Bethel) is also huge!

Alignment, alignment, alignment with God's government and His original covenants is taking place in Israel. It is such an amazing day!

2. Hundreds of new homes to replace the 30 demolished in Beit El, Samaria - Israel National News

The Samarian town of Beit El will soon include a vastly larger new neighborhood, totaling 650 units instead of the original 300 it was promised six years ago, according to a report in Israel Hayom Tuesday.

The prime minister made an agreement with the town's leaders in 2012 to compensate them for the demolition of 30 homes when the court ruled that they were built on private Palestinian property. The residents left without putting up the kind of active resistance that has occurred in similar situations.

In a place where not a single house has been built in almost a decade in a de facto building freeze, the building of hundreds of new homes is welcome news.

3. Israel is under massive Chinese, Russian cyber espionage attack - YNET News

A few months ago, "Ophir," a senior official with a rich intelligence background turned private cyber security expert, was called back to duty.

The mission: Ophir and a team of experts were asked to examine the security of some of Israel's main computer systems. A few systems were defined as "strategic," others of lesser importance. But since less time and energy is spent on protecting these secondary systems, it can make them even more vulnerable to infiltration. The investigation team was put together by one of Israel's governmental intelligence and information protection agencies.

The idea was to have someone from the outside-a fresh pair of eyes-look at these systems and identify "holes" and problems that may have gone unnoticed by the regular cyber security team.

"The Shin Bet's counter-espionage unit has never been busier," Ophir was told.

4. Israeli Arabs, Palestinians to mark annual 'Israel apartheid day' - Israel Hayom

The Palestine Liberation Organization's Executive Committee has decided to establish July 19 - the date on which the Knesset passed the nation-state law - as a "Day of Struggle against Israeli Apartheid," it was announced Sunday.

The committee adopted the proposal at a conference in Ramallah last week. The idea had been proposed by the head of the Arab Higher Monitoring Committee and former Hadash MK Mohammad Barakeh, together with Joint Arab List MK Ahmad Tibi.

The nation-state law, which legally defines Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, has angered non-Jewish minorities in the country. Israeli Arabs, who form the largest minority at 20% of the population, say the law is discriminatory and downgrades their status.

"The nation-state law creates a ranking of citizens by ethnic affiliation - Jews with rights of Jewish superiority, and Arabs without equality, second-class citizens," Tibi said.

5. Major Gun-Law Reform Passes, Allowing Arming of Thousands More Qualified Israelis - JNS - A major reform to Israel's gun law meant to put an end to terrorism on Israeli streets will make more than 500,000 more Israelis eligible to receive permits to buy and carry handguns.

The new law went into immediate effect on Monday, and will allow hundreds of thousands of Israel Defense Forces infantry-unit veterans and active police officers to apply for gun permits.

Army officers with rank of first lieutenant or higher and non-commissioned officers ranked first sergeant or higher will not only be eligible for gun permits, but will no longer be asked to return their guns and permits upon honorable discharge from reserve service. They will be permitted to put in a request to keep carrying them.

Magen David Adom, ZAKA and Hatzalah medical and police volunteers will also be eligible for permits.

1. Sen. Susan Collins says Kavanaugh sees Roe v. Wade as 'settled law' - Washington Post

A Republican senator whose vote could ensure the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh offered an upbeat assessment of their meeting Tuesday, highlighting the judge's statement that the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion is "settled law."

Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), a centrist who supports abortion rights, appeared to be leaning toward backing President Trump's nominee after a one-on-one session that lasted more than two hours. Collins said she would announce her decision after confirmation hearings next month.

Collins said Kavanaugh told her that he agreed with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., who said during his 2005 confirmation hearing that Roe was "settled as a precedent of the court." The landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision established a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy.

"He said that he agreed with what Justice Roberts said at his nomination hearing, in which he said it was settled law," Collins told reporters. She praised her session with Kavanaugh as "excellent."

With Republicans holding a slim 51-to-49 Senate majority, favorable votes from Collins and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) would guarantee Kavanaugh's confirmation and hand Trump his second Supreme Court justice. (Read more)

- Father God, we continue to cry out that only the man or woman of Your choosing be placed upon the Supreme Court of the United States of America. We decree that this vacant seat will stand for LIFE. Amen.

- "This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live." (Deuteronomy 30:19)

2. Paul Manafort guilty on eight counts - Washington Times

A jury on Tuesday found former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty on eight charges in his bank and tax fraud trial. Mr. Manafort was found guilty on all five charges of filing false income tax returns. He was found guilty on two of the nine counts of bank fraud conspiracy. He was found guilty on one of four counts of failure to disclose a foreign bank account.

The conviction in an Alexandria, Virginia, courtroom is more than a reflection of the evidence piled up against Mr. Manafort. The verdict is a win for Mr. Mueller. While the jury couldn't decide on 10 counts, he can claim that the guilty verdicts in the other eight prove the legitimacy of his work to a public growing weary of the 14-month investigation.

It also gives ammunition to Mr. Trump's opponents on the left, who will no doubt press Mr. Mueller to keep digging to see if he can link the president - who was barely mentioned in the trial - to the Russian interference.

Mr. Manafort could face more than 300 years in prison. Federal sentencing guidelines give Judge T.S. Ellis the authority to reduce Mr. Manafort time in prison. But even with a possible reduction, the one time head of the Trump campaign, will likely spent the rest of his life in prison. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for later this year. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up Paul Manafort, his family, attorneys and all impacted by this decision. Encourage them, Lord, by showing them the next steps You have for them.

- Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy. (Habakkuk 3:2)

3. Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen pleads guilty, admits to making illegal payments at direction of candidate to influence election - CNBC

Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer and fixer for President Donald Trump, agreed to plead guilty on Tuesday to eight charges related to tax fraud, excessive campaign contributions, making false statements to a financial institution, and unlawful corporate contributions at a court hearing in New York on Tuesday.

Two of those charges appear to relate to Trump directly. Cohen admitted on Tuesday to making payments to two women at the direction of an unidentified candidate for political office. Those payments, Cohen said, were made to influence the outcome of the election.

Cohen had surrendered to the FBI on Tuesday afternoon. The president's former confidant came under investigation by federal prosecutors in New York City earlier this year after they received a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. (Read more)

- Father, we pray Michael Cohen will turn to You in this time of great distress. Help him endure this selective prosecution due to his proximity to President Trump. We pray he will not be enticed to bear false witness, but only tell the truth.

- A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is deceitful. (Proverbs 14:25)

4. Trump plans breakneck midterm campaign schedule, determined to keep GOP in power - Washington Times

President Trump is embarking on the most aggressive midterm campaigning schedule in recent presidential history, spending more than 40 days on the road before the November elections. The president ordered his team to draw up the grueling schedule because he is determined to buck historical trends and rack up wins to keep GOP control of the House, expand the GOP majority in the Senate and put more GOP governors in state houses, according to a person familiar with his thinking.

The president's party has lost seats in all but two midterm elections since the Civil War. To buck the trend, Mr. Trump has organized a flexible schedule for campaign rallies and fundraisers that will be adjusted to react to developments in individual races. The toughest battle will be for the House, where Democrats need to flip 23 seats to take control.

Although the GOP holds a two-seat majority in the Senate, most of the battleground races are for Democrat-held seats and in states that Mr. Trump won in 2016. He has an opportunity to expand the Republican majority in the upper chamber.

Over the next six weeks, the president plans to hold at least eight rallies and at least 16 fundraisers throughout the country in as many as 15 states in support of Senate, House and gubernatorial candidates. The September schedule includes likely stops in North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Kentucky and Tennessee. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for Your grace and protection to cover President Trump and his team as they travel the nation. Help security identify and remove those who wish to cause trouble or harm.

- Keep me safe, Lord, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from the violent, who devise ways to trip my feet. (Psalm 140:4)

5. In White House tribute, Trump hails ICE, border agents as patriots and heroes - Fox News

In a special ceremony at the White House on Monday, President Donald Trump honored two agencies - Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection - calling their members "incredibly brave patriots who keep America safe." The "Salute to the Heroes" event took place with the two agencies at the center of a national debate over how to handle the influx of families and unaccompanied children at the U.S.-Mexican border.

"American is a land of opportunities because we are a nation of laws," Trump said, "For America to be a strong nation, we must have strong borders." Trump took aim at opponents --including Democratic leaders and immigration advocacy groups -- of tougher border enforcement. He portrayed them as not grounded in the reality that control of immigration at the borders and the interior is critical to law and order, and security.

You are the patriots and you are the heroes. You keep us safe and you keep us free. I'm honored every single day to serve as your Commander-in-Chief. I will never leave your side, I will never leave the fight. "Thank you for your service," he said. "You are truly incredible people." (Read more)

- Father, we lift up those who put their lives on the line to keep us safe each day. We pray the men and women of ICE and CBP will continue to serve our nation honorably and feel appreciated for the work they do.

- Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. (Proverbs 31:31)

6. ICE deports former Nazi labor camp guard who lied about his past - Washington Examiner

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement early Tuesday deported a former Nazi SS labor camp guard to Germany, pursuant to a 2004 deportation order. Jakiw Palij, 95, had lived in Queens, N.Y., for decades, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. She said President Trump prioritized Palij's deportation after "extensive negotiations" with Germany. "Palij had lied about being a Nazi and remained in the United States for decades," Sanders said. "Palij's removal sends a strong message: The United States will not tolerate those who facilitated Nazi crimes and other human rights violations, and they will not find a safe haven on American soil."

The White House said Palij moved to the U.S. in 1949 and became a citizen in 1957 by hiding his background. "Palij lied to United States immigration officials, saying that he had spent World War II working on a farm and in a factory," Sanders said. He admitted his Nazi past in 2001, and said he trained at a Nazi camp, Trawniki, known for training people to kill Polish Jews. Six thousand Jews were killed there in 1943, Sanders said. (Read more)

- Father, we pray the removal of this last known actual Nazi will also remove any and all foothold the enemy has had to promote anti-Semitism and fascism in our nation.

- I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you. (Genesis 12:3)

7. Murder charge filed in Mollie Tibbetts case - Des Moines Register

A first-degree murder charge was filed on Tuesday in connection with the disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts, who was last seen jogging in Brooklyn on July 18. Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, who resides in rural Poweshiek County, was charged with first-degree murder.

Investigators said Rivera has lived in the area between four to seven years, Rahn said. Local officials confirmed with Homeland Security that he is an undocumented immigrant. During a neighborhood canvas, investigators found a person with surveillance footage that was provided to officials. Through the footage, they identified a black Malibu belonging to Rivera.

Officials then tracked his vehicle and the routes that he took. Investigators also saw Tibbetts running on the video and confirmed Rivera was one of the last people to have seen her running. He led investigators to her body, which was found in a cornfield and covered by cornstalks off 460th Avenue, Rahn said. (Read more)

- Father, our hearts are broken for the Tibbetts family, and for all those mourning this beautiful girl. Comfort them and help them find their strength in You.

- My soul weeps because of grief; strengthen me according to Your word. (Psalm 119:28)

8. Judge Reverses Himself, Hands Trump Big DACA Win - The Western Journal

U.S. District Judge John Bates said the government does not have to accept new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals requests, on Friday, going back on his initial order from Aug. 3. Illegal immigrants who were brought over as children, known as "Dreamers," can renew their DACA applications, but no new requests will be processed, The Associated Press reported. Bates initially ordered U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to restart DACA by Aug. 23.

USCIS warned restarting the program would force the agency to look at the uptick of roughly 50,000 new DACA applications instead of focusing on legal immigrant and guest worker applications, The Washington Times reported on Aug. 15. Opponents of illegal immigration - and supporters of the president - applauded the ruling. The judge also delayed providing special protections to DACA recipients. Bates' ruling comes as the decision on whether to completely remove DACA looms in Texas. Texas and six other states were in support of making DACA illegal. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, argued that the implementation of DACA was federal overreach and was a financial burden to states, the Dallas Morning News reported on Aug. 8. (Read more)

- Father, we pray You will remove every barrier that stands in the way of our nation developing strong and compassionate immigration law.

- For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.
(2 Corinthians 10:4)

9. Donald Trump to end 'war on coal' with rule replacing Obama-era Clean Power Plan - Washington Times

The Affordable Clean Energy Rule as proposed sets guidelines on emissions from coal-fired plants for states and replaces the Clean Power Plan, the centerpiece of President Barack Obama's so-called "war on coal," which was frozen by the Supreme Court in 2016 and has never been implemented. The EPA said the proposed rule "empowers states, promotes energy independence, and facilitates economic growth and job creation."

"The ACE Rule would restore the rule of law and empower states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide modern, reliable, and affordable energy for all Americans," said EPA acting administrator Andrew Wheeler. "Today's proposal provides the states and regulated community the certainty they need to continue environmental progress while fulfilling President Trump's goal of energy dominance."

The agency estimated that the benefit of subbing out the Obama-era rule with the ACE Rule would result in $400 million in economic benefits by reducing the compliance burden, while potentially reducing 2030 carbon-dioxide emissions by 1.5 percent from projected levels, "the equivalent of taking 5.3 million cars off the road." (Read more)

- Father, we pray the lifting of this regulation will improve the environment while still meeting the goals of providing affordable energy and good jobs.

- The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress. (Job 37:23)

10. Memo reveals Soros-funded social-media censorship plan - WND

The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump's administration.

A confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate "right wing propaganda and fake news" was presented in January 2017 by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time. On Monday, the Gateway Pundit blog noted the memo's relationship with recent moves by Silicon Valley tech giants to "shadow ban" conservative political candidates and pundits and remove content.

The Free Beacon obtained a copy of the memo, "Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action," by attending the retreat. Facebook, meanwhile has changed its newsfeed algorithm, ostensibly to combat "fake news," causing a precipitous decline in traffic for many conservative sites. President Donald Trump himself was affected, with his engagement on Facebook dropping by 45 percent. A study in June by Gateway Pundit found Facebook had eliminated 93 percent of the traffic of top conservative news outlets.

President Trump's 2020 campaign manager charged last week the giants of Silicon Valley are stifling free speech, particularly conservative speech, manifesting the "inherent totalitarian impulse" of the left. (Read more)

- Father, we pray the Federal Election Commission will be tasked to investigate these algorithms as unfairly benefiting one candidate over another. Help conservatives and those who love liberty fight this censorship and be heard.

- If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will be established forever. (Proverbs 29:14)

11. SPIES? Two Iranians Indicted For Allegedly Spying For Iranian Government On Jewish Sites And Iran Regime Opponents - Daily Wire

On Monday, two Iranian citizens were indicted for allegedly acting on behalf of the Iranian government and covertly surveilling Israeli and Jewish facilities in the United States as well as collecting identifying information about American citizens and U.S. nationals who are members of Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), an Iranian opposition group in exile.

Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers named Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar, 38, a dual U.S.-Iranian citizen, and Majid Ghorbani, 59, an Iranian citizen and resident of California. Doostdar and Ghorbani are alleged to have acted on behalf of Iran, including by conducting surveillance of political opponents and engaging in other activities that could put Americans at risk. Doostdar and Ghorbani were arrested on August 9.

According to the indictment, in July 2017, Doostdar allegedly surveilled the Rohr Chabad House in Chicago, photographing its security features. In late September 2017, Ghorbani allegedly photographed individuals from MEK participating in the protest against the Iranian regime.

The government of Iran considers MEK to be a "primary opponent of the current regime" according to prosecutors who say they have continuously advocated for the overthrow of the government there. The Iranian government has "sought to eradicate the MEK," U.S. agents said. The court filing doesn't name individuals who were to be targeted, but information about "several U.S. Congressman who have overt ties to the MEK" was found in a locked suitcase allegedly linked to the men. (Read more)

- Father, thank You for exposing these Iranian operatives. We pray each person and place they identified will be protected from plans of harm or destruction.

- He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. (Psalm 91:4)

The Daily Jot

Tuesday, August 21, 2018


The giants in the spook business are both attacking one another and upholding one another in their dodge-and confuse-efforts to protect the institutions they once served. According to The Hill and television appearances, Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper thinks that former CIA Director John Brennan's rhetoric against President Trump is an issue in of itself. Clapper, whose boss was the immediate ex-president, was involved in a massive spying effort against the American people, and was in charge when the ex-president used the FISA court to spy on Trump. Trump removed Brennan's security clearance last week because of his behavior after leaving the CIA.

Trump said of Brennan that his "lying and recent conduct characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary is wholly inconsistent with access to the nation's most closely held secrets and facilities, the very aim of our adversaries, which is to sow division and chaos." But Brennan whined like a baby thinking he can tell the New York Times that the president conspired with the Russians and a lot of other things that he best should keep to himself given his former position, and still keep his security clearance. Clapper backhandedly came to Brennan's defense saying that "the common denominator among all of us [in the intelligence community] that have been speaking up is genuine concern about the jeopardy and threats to our institutions."

His remarks were backed up by an entire group of 60 former intelligence officials in a release to CNN, saying "All of us believe it is critical to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure," the group wrote in a letter obtained by CNN. "But we believe equally strongly that former government officials have the right to express their unclassified views on what they see as critical national security issues without fear of being punished for doing so." So they want to protect their agencies by telling the public what they think the public needs to know about their secret little world, and their mouthpiece is CNN. It makes a lot of sense. This is the fulcrum of the entire attack on the current presidency-protecting the turf of secrecy.

These people have been doing horrible, anti-American, anti-Constitutional acts for so long that they will do anything, include conspire with the news media and the Democratic Party to overthrow a president, to protect their deep, dark secrets. They don't want their security clearances revoked because that allows them to continue their conspiratorial acts long after they officially leave-just an opinion, but just put two and two together. The Lord tells Ezekiel in Ezekiel 8:8-9, "Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door. And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do there." It is similar today in the high places of government. We the people must continue digging and exposing these conspirators and usurpers for the abominations they commit.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

THE BRIEFING 028 - Esther's Stand in the Court -

Our team at TheCall is reminded at this time of a previous Esther Fast, just before the elections of 2004, during which Lou had the special privilege of being given a private tour of the Supreme Court. After being ushered through the inner chambers of this historic edifice, he was brought to the top floor of the building - directly above the official courtroom below - where he was shown the actual basketball court that many have dubbed "The Highest Court in the Land." Lou seized his moment on that "higher court" to command and decree the shifting of the judges and the ultimate reversal of Roe V. Wade.
1. Wage war against witchcraft. (1 Samuel 15 and Isaiah 8:19-21) Let us humble ourselves before God and ask him to cleanse us, our homes, and our governmental institutions of all rebellion and presumption, which the scriptures liken unto witchcraft and idolatry. Exalt the victory of the cross over the Haman spirit, breaking the power of every curse and demonic scheme that has been arrayed against us and our leaders.

2. Declare the shifting of the Supreme Court and the consecrating of Justice Kennedy's vacant seat. In regards to Justice Kavanaugh's nomination, we decree that he may only take this seat if he will overrule Roe V. Wade and align himself with the Constitution and the administration of biblical justice. Command the vacating of three additional seats.

3. Decree the overturning of the death decree of abortion and call forth physical and spiritual life for this generation.

A Very Important Word for our Nation

Pastor John Kilpatrick Ushers in a Critical Warning for America

Dear Intercessors,

Following is a link to a 15 minute video of the end of Pastor John Kilpatrick's message during last Sunday's service at the Church of His Presence. In it he shares a dream and calls on the church to pray for President Trump. You will want to watch this so as to know specifically how to pray for the President right now. Pastor Kilpatrick says the Lord showed him that thus far the President has been dealing with Ahab, but that Jezebel is about to step out from the shadows and confront him directly. Kilpatrick believes we need to pray that President Trump doesn't fold under the intense witchcraft she wields and that he will not only stand strong, but stay the course.

To view his teaching, go here.
If you want to watch the complete service including Pastor Kirkpatrick's sermon, use this link:

(Note: You may want to skip the first part which consists of church announcements, offering and worship. Pastor Kilpatrick's sermon starts at about the 1 hr 09 minute mark.

If, however, you don't have time for his entire sermon, please listen to the last 20 minutes which lead up to the call to pray for President Trump. This portion starts at the 1 hr 48 minute 38 second mark. It deals with confronting power brokers, those who would intimidate, specifically Jezebel in this case.)

I believe this particular prophetic call to prayer by Pastor Kilpatrick is both timely and critical.

Thanks for your understanding, and thank you for your faithfulness to intercede in such matters.


Gary in Texas

> > > A note from CHPP: Several of you have sent this vidoe over to us and we agree with Gary's statement, above. Please do listen to this message, and then "factor in" the comment below from one of our CHPP Prayer Captains on the Hill: Barbara L. Potts. Thank you!

John Kilpatrick - "Jezebel is fixing to step out from the shadows - the spirit of witchcraft itself. Pray for Trump now because there is about to be a shift, and the deep state is about to manifest, and it's going to be a showdown like you can't believe. So I'm coming to you as a prophet, as a man of God, and I'm telling you, it's time to pray for the President!"

My response:

"This is the word of the Lord, which He spoke by His servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 'On the plot of ground at Jezreel dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel; and the corpse of Jezebel shall be as refuse on the surface of the field.'" - (2 Kings 9:36-37)

We lift up President Donald Trump and his administration under the victorious BLOOD-stained banner of the reigning King, Jesus Christ - And we proclaim that the BLOOD of the Lamb of God has triumphed over, and continues to prevail against, every diabolical, witchcraft spirit sent to steal, kill and destroy. As in Elijha's day Jezebel had a violent end because she came against the man and the purposes of God, so shall the Jezebel of this day be: O Lord God of Hosts - who is mighty like You, O Lord? - You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm -- Your right hand and Your holy arm have gained You the victory! LORD SABAOTH - We implore You to put on Your righteousness as a breastplate with Your garments of vengeance. Clad Yourself with holy zeal - Arise as our DELIVERER and raise Your standard against the enemy! Execute your righteous judgements against witchcraft and the Jezebel spirit operating against your Kingdom purposes and people through ignorant men and women today. We proclaim that IT IS WRITTEN: Having disarmed principalities and powers, Jesus made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them through the BLOOD His cross.
Donald Trump, BLOOD COVENANT CHILD OF GOD and chosen by Him to lead this nation for such a time as this , , , We declare that NO WEAPON formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment or curses you shall condemn, for a curse without a cause shall have no power over you.
And further, IT IS WRITTEN:
But now, thus says the LORD, who created you,
(Donald Trump) . . .
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name; You are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
3 For I am the LORD your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior."
(Isaiah 43:1-2)

Our Prayer For America

Our Prayer For America

By Barry Battelstein

To read this wrenching prayer for America, written by Barry Battelstein, go here.

Sign of the Times

Sign of the Times:


We are living amidst such deception, delusion, and lies. Confusion abounds. Such an unpleasant environment for true believers in the Lord.

Yes, there are still true Christians out there. Yes, there are still true believers in Jesus. Yes, there are those who seek to follow God all the days of their lives. They are just a small minority. Visibly, a very small minority.

"The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers" (2 Corinthians 4:4 NIV)

Ah, yes. The blinded unbelievers. We see them so prevalent in our world today. They occupy many positions of influence in the secular world in government, media, entertainment, even the religious arena.

But there is even more. Consider this:

People are perishing because they have refused and do refuse to love the truth. They reject the truth. What truth? That Jesus is the son of God, that he is the king of kings, that he is the only hope we people have and the savior of the world. And what is God's response in these last days to these people who actively and intentionally refuse to believe the truth? He sends them a delusion so that they will believe the lie (their false views of the world) and so that they will be condemned. People who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness are condemned (see 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).

Classic Hymns

All for Jesus! All for Jesus

"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:
for ye serve the Lord Christ."
(Colossians 3:23-24)


All for Jesus! All for Jesus! All my being's ransomed pow'rs; All my thoughts and words and doings, All my days and all my hours. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! All my days and all my hours. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! All my days and all my hours.

Let my hands perform His bidding; Let my feet run in His ways; Let mine eyes see Jesus only; Let my lips speak forth His praise. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! Let my lips speak forth His praise. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! Let my lips speak forth His praise.

Worldlings prize their gems of beauty, Cling to gilded toys of dust; Boast of wealth, and fame, and pleasure; Only Jesus will I trust. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! Only Jesus will I trust. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! Only Jesus will I trust.
Since mine eyes were fixed on Jesus, I've lost sight of all beside- So enchained my spirit's vision, Looking at the Crucified. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! Looking at the Crucified. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! Looking at the Crucified.
Oh, what wonder! how amazing! Jesus, glorious King of kings, Deigns to call me His beloved, Lets me rest beneath His wings. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! Resting now beneath His wings. All for Jesus! All for Jesus! Resting now beneath His wings.

Signs and Wonders

STEVE is Not an Aurora

A new type of aurora nicknamed "STEVE" may not be an aurora at all, according to a new paper published August 20th in the Geophysical Research Letters. A group of researchers combined satellite data with ground-based imagery of STEVE during a geomagnetic storm to investigate how STEVE is formed. "Our main conclusion is that STEVE is not an aurora," said Bea Gallardo-Lacourt, a space physicist at the University of Calgary in Canada and lead author of the new study.

STEVE is a purple ribbon of light that amateur astronomers in Canada have been photographing for decades, belatedly catching the attention of the scientific community in 2016. It doesn't look exactly like an aurora, but it often appears alongside auroras during geomagnetic storms. Is it an aurora -- or not? That's what Gallardo-Lacourt's team wanted to find out.
Auroras appear when energetic particles from space rain down on Earth's atmosphere during geomagnetic storms. If STEVE is an aurora, they reasoned, it should form in much the same way. On March 28, 2008, STEVE appeared over eastern Canada just as NOAA's Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite 17 (POES-17) passed overhead. The satellite, which can measure the rain of charged particles that causes auroras, went directly above the purple ribbon. Gallardo-Lacourt's team looked carefully at the old data and found ... no rain at all.
"Our results verify that this STEVE event is clearly distinct from the aurora borealis since it is characterized by the absence of particle precipitation," say the researchers. "Interestingly, its skyglow could be generated by a new and fundamentally different mechanism in Earth's ionosphere."

Another study has shown that STEVE appears most often in spring and fall. With the next equinox only a month away, new opportunities to study STEVE are just around the corner. Stay tuned and, meanwhile, read the original research here. (

Soccer Coach Who Overcame Extreme Poverty in Zimbabwe
Now Giving Back in a Beautiful Way

[] An Arkansas youth soccer coach may be living out the very definition of the American dream, but he hasn't forgotten his roots and the hardships he faced along the way. Today, he's giving youths in his hometown the chance to experience something he never could as a boy.

Itayi Pondwa grew up in a small southern town in Zimbabwe, where soccer pitches consisted of dirt fields and he played the game without shoes to protect his feet.

Pondwa and his friends didn't even have real soccer balls-as a young boy, he would create makeshift soccer balls using plastic bags and filling them with newspaper. (Breaking Christian News) Read more.

About CHPP

About Capitol Hill Prayer Partners

Our Mission Statement

Capitol Hill Prayer Partners (CHPP) is a ministry which is positioned on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., helping members of the Body of Christ to "pray for those in authority over us" in our federal government. Our primary purpose is to offer intercession on site for the members of Congress and their staffs each day that the Senate and the House of Representatives are in session; and our chief prayer focus is that "God's will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." [Matthew 6:10].

Because Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all, we, too, pray for ALL, in a nonpartisan manner. Also, because the scriptures indicate that "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 4:17), we are confident that fervent prayer, offered in the halls of the highest chambers of government in our land, can avail much for America. Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes those who feel called to join us, engaging in this strategic work of intercession for our nation: "For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God." [Romans 13:1]


Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes all who wish to pray for our leaders to join us in prayer for our nation. You may sign up to receive our alerts by sending an email to us at requesting that your name be added to our list of subscribers.
