Focus on Israel

1. Gazans infiltrate into Israel - Israel National News

A number of suspects infiltrated Israel from southern Gaza on Friday evening, hurled firebombs and an explosive device in the border fence area and then returned into Gaza.

In response, an IDF tank targeted a Hamas military post in southern Gaza.

The incident came as 8,000 violent rioters gathered in five locations along the Gaza border throughout the day, attempting to sabotage security infrastructure.

IDF troops responded with riot dispersal means and operated according to standard procedures.

Since March, at least 156 Palestinian rioters have lost their lives in Hamas-orchestrated disturbances on the border, and one Israeli soldier was shot dead by a sniper.

A Syrian scientist at the head of a research center allegedly linked to the development of chemical weapons and bombed by Israel in the past was killed in a car-bombing, according to Syrian reports early Sunday.

Aziz Azbar, the head of the Syrian Scientific Research and Studies Center in Masyaf, was killed along with his driver in a blast Saturday night, according to reports. The deaths were reported by a number of Syrian and Lebanese news outlets as well as the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor and a Facebook page purportedly linked to the Syrian military.

The Daily Brief

1. Judge Ellis Loses Patience with Mueller Prosecutors and Ends Court Early Over Screw-Up -

Paul Manafort's third day on trial over charges of bank fraud and tax evasion was cut a bit short on Thursday after government attorneys made the same mistake twice in a row.

The last witness called to the stand was J. Philip Ayliff, a certified public accountant (CPA) at Paul Manafort's long-serving tax-preparation agency, Kositzka, Wicks and Co. (KWC), of Richmond, Virginia. As time inched along during the last witness's testimony, nothing of particular interest seemed to be occurring at all. . . Static filled the courtroom as the longest bench conference of the day ensued. Upon returning to Ayliff's testimony, the jury learned that the issue had been deferred until Friday-if ever.

. . . After the jury left, Ellis took a few minutes to tell the press and public all about the bench conference. As it turns out, not only was Ayliff a non-noticed witness being asked to give the equivalent of expert testimony, but the prosecution and defense had already agreed on what the term "financial interest" meant. Moreover, this agreement was provided on a proposed-and approved-jury instruction. That is, not only was Ayliff not an expert and not a noticed expert as necessitated by the Federal Rules of Evidence-but his testimony had the potential to derail an already-agreed-upon definition of the term(s) in question. This, Ellis said, could have "confused or clouded" things for the jury. (Read more)

- Father God, we thank You that Judge Ellis is one who, indeed, demands there to be "order in the court." May his judgment be upheld, and may the alleged accusations against Paul Manafort be dropped, we pray in Your name, amen.

- "No harm overtakes the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble." (Proverbs 12:21)

2. DACA program should be fully restarted, federal judge rules - Fox News

A federal judge on Friday ordered a total restart of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in a hit to the Trump administration.

The administration last year announced its plan to phase out the program, which provides a level of amnesty to certain illegal immigrants, many of whom came to the U.S. as children.

The order is not set to kick in right away, according to Politico, which notes that the government has until Aug. 23 to file a motion to appeal the ruling by U.S. District Judge John Bates.

However, the judge denied a motion by the government to revise its earlier decision in April -- which determined that the Department of Homeland Security's decision to rescind DACA was "unlawful," according to court documents. (Read more)

- Father, we ask that this ruling be appealed, and overturned, in Your name, amen.

- "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 18:19)

3. U.K. Parliament Committee Exposes Mass-scale UN Child Rape - New American

The United Nations is once again in the global spotlight for the most heinous crimes imaginable - the massive, systematic rape of innocent children perpetrated by child rapists working for the UN and various "aid" agencies. In a new report released this week, the U.K. Parliament's committee overseeing foreign aid found that the rape and sexual abuse of children by UN officials and "aid" workers was "endemic," and that UN officials have done essentially nothing despite knowing all about it. The investigators suspect that the number of known cases is merely the "tip of the iceberg."

Former UN officials and campaigners working to end the widespread rape of children have called for everything from criminal accountability and reform of the "immunity" system to a more in-depth study of the problem so policymakers can understand the enormous scope of it. Calls to reform the UN's whistleblower protections are also getting louder. But as far as the UN and its largely tax-funded "aid" affiliates are concerned, they appear to be more concerned with keeping it all quiet and ensuring that their reputations are not sullied than in actually doing something to stop the horrific and ongoing abuse of women and children.

The damning new report, published by the U.K. House of Commons International Development Committee, explores the nasty but largely hidden world of pedophiles and child rapists working within the UN and various international "aid" agencies associated with it. Noting that the rape of children by UN "peacekeepers" and aid workers goes back decades, the British inquiry found that in places such as Syria, rape of women and children by international officials is now "an entrenched feature" of life. And while estimates say well over 60,000 women and children have been raped by UN officials in the last decade, the truth is that nobody really knows how massive the problem is. (Read more)

- Oh God and Father of all, come forth with Your mighty power to disable the rapists working for the UN and various aid agencies which comprise this massive systematic rape of innocent children. Send myriads of mighty warrior angels who will fight to protect the lives of these children. Release and free these children from being used by ravenous animal-like men. We pray in the Name of Jesus, amen.

- "Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knows not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell." (Proverbs 9:17-18)

4. O'Keefe catches antifa teaching activists to inflict pain - WND

Break a rib and 'it's hard to move after that'. A new undercover video by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas shows trainers teaching radical antifa activists how to violently incapacitate their foes. Broken ribs, gouged eyes and more. Clips from the video are featured briefly in Dinesh D'Souza's new movie, "Death of a Nation," which opens in theaters Friday.

In it, antifa "fight instructors" are training activists for encounters with police, or Trump supporters, or anyone else who opposes their will. "If you get a good liver or kidney shot, it's pretty much crippling them. They're going to be doubled over and in a lot of pain. If you break one of the floating ribs, which are small and right down here. Those are also very painful. It's hard to move after that, to catch a breath," says one. "So one good body shot could potentially give you all the time in the world to run away while they're doubled over in pain, or really put a beating on them after that if you really want to make it personal."

There are chuckles among the activists after that comment. Adds another trainer: "We just kind of wanted to in this space, reframe the idea of self-defense as not simply, you're being acted upon by an aggressor. But it's kind of a decision you make to fight back in a lot of ways to say, 'I am human and I occupy this space and I will not be xxx with.'" (Read more)

- Almighty God, we pray that the antifa fight instructors will be held back from teaching self-defense that would cause death to their victims. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "The fear of the Lord prolongs days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened." (Proverbs 10:27)

5. Unite the Right, BLM, Antifa to Descend on D.C. for Protest, Counter Protest - Breitbart

Washington, DC, will be center stage next weekend as Unite the Right plans to mark the one-year- anniversary of the Charlottesville, Virginia, riot that led to one woman's death and months of acrimony over the violence that broke out after a protest over the removal of a Confederate statue from a local park. Counter-protesters, including Black Lives Matter and Antifa, plan to demonstrate on the same weekend.

According to NBC, the National Park Service has approved a permit for the group to protest on Aug. 12 at Lafayette Park across from the White House. In a June report in the Washington Post, Kessler said in an email interview that he chose D.C. "because he wants Trump and elected officials to know about 'the civil rights abuse by the Charlottesville government that led to the violence at last year's rally.'"

USA Today reported that the counter-protesters would gather beginning on Aug. 10 "to prepare activists for confrontations with white nationalists and any possible violence." And, the USA Today report said, counter-protesters said they would not work with police. "Police are here to protect white supremacists, to protect the murderers, to protect the fascists," Black Lives Matter D.C.'s Green said. (Read more)

- Father, we pray that You will block any evil demonstration next weekend that would cause riotous acts of violence by their unlawful actions and bind them by the power of the Blood of Jesus. Protect the police and all law-abiding people. In the Name of Jesus we pray.

- "Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away." (Proverbs 4:14-15)

6. Lawmakers Demand Declassification of Bruce Ohr FBI Interviews - Sara Carter

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) have been stonewalled since last year by the Department of Justice, which has refused to turn over interviews the FBI conducted with former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr. He was demoted twice for failing to disclose his involvement with significant figures (including his wife) associated with the unverified dossier from the now-embattled research firm, Fusion GPS, which alleged President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russia.

The lawmakers say Ohr's close relationship with former British spy and dossier author, Christopher Steele is deeply troubling. Also concerning to lawmakers is the fact that even after Steele was terminated by the FBI (he worked as a source until he was fired for "unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI"), Ohr continued to supply documents from the ex-spy to the bureau.

Lawmakers tell that the interview documents (known as 302s) should be declassified because they believe it will reveal the extent of Ohr's involvement with Fusion GPS, his relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS owner Glenn Simpson, and his communications with FBI officials investigating Trump's campaign. (Read more)

- Almighty God, we ask that You would unearth the true source of all the deceit and lies against President Trump. The enemies of the last administration are still hammering away to bring harm to him. Cut them off, Lord, through the power of the Blood of Jesus and their words and works will fall to the ground in a defeated heap. In Jesus' Name we pray.

- "He that works deceit shall not dwell within My house: he that tells lies shall not tarry in My sight. I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the Lord." (Psalm 101:7-8)

7. FBI releases heavily redacted documents on Trump dossier author - Washington Examiner

The FBI on Friday released dozens of documents related to the bureau's relationship with former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who compiled the infamous Trump dossier. The 71 pages are heavily redacted and contain mostly payment requests and receipts. The documents also confirm the FBI terminated its relationship with Steele after he leaked information to the press about the dossier on President Trump.

Steele was hired by political research Fusion GPS during the presidential campaign to conduct research on then-candidate Trump. It was revealed in October 2017 that the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee had paid for the research that led to the dossier. The dossier eventually was handed over to the FBI, which used it to obtain warrants to surveil Trump aide Carter Page. (Read more)

- Thank You, Lord, that hidden facts are now being revealed. Let justice rule!

- "But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!" (Amos 5:24)

8. China loses status as world's second-largest stock market amid trade war with US - CNBC

Chinese shares ceded their ranking as the second-largest stock market in the world to Japan, the Financial Times reported on Friday. China's market surpassed Japan in market value in November 2014 to become the world's second-largest, the FT said. The U.S. stock market, which continues to be the world's largest, was valued at $31 trillion at the end of Thursday, it added. The change in rankings came after Asian markets declined in the previous session amid an elevation in trade tensions after the Trump administration said it was considering increasing a proposed tariff on $200 billion in Chinese goods to 25 percent compared to an initially announced 10 percent.

Chinese stocks have been hit this year as uncertainty over Beijing's trade relations with the U.S. continue to persist. The Shanghai Composite has fallen some 17 percent this year and was more than 23 percent below its 52-week high at the market close on Friday. (Read more)

- Father God, thank You for leading President Trump as he seeks to make the needed adjustments in our relationship with China. Grant Him Your wisdom, O Lord, we pray, amen.

- "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits. The Lord executes righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed." (Psalm 103:2)

9. AFL-CIO chief praises Trump's trade policies - The Hill

AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka says that President Trump's tariffs are a step in the right direction, saying he believes they can lead to rewriting the rules of global trade. "[Trump] understands that's what should be done," Trumka said on Wednesday morning, during an event in Washington, D.C., hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "We reject the notion that it's either free trade or protectionism." He added, however, that Trump's tariffs should be more targeted, saying he didn't he agree with the decision to levy tariffs on Canada. The qualified praise of Trump's controversial trade policies from a labor union federation with deep ties to the Democratic Party is the latest indicator of how Trump is shifting party politics.

Congressional Republicans have by and large rejected Trump's approach of imposing steep tariffs on allies and adversaries alike, even introducing legislation that would limit some of his trade authority. But Trumka said that the measures and the retaliatory tariffs imposed by China, Canada, Mexico and the E.U. were ultimately small potatoes. "The hysteria about 'there's a trade war and the sky is falling' is simply inaccurate and does a disservice to the country," he said, adding that tough measures against China were particularly welcome. (Read more)

- Our Father in heaven, thank You for keeping Your precious hand on President Trump and guiding him to make favorable historic decisions regarding trade policies. Bless his efforts and continue to guide him with great wisdom, understanding and foresight to make America strong. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is God's mercy toward them that fear Him." (Psalm 103:11)

10. Iranian Protesters Target Supreme Leader: 'Death To The Dictator' - Daily Wire

As the rial, the Iranian currency, continues its plunge, and as Iran gets ready for the sanctions instituted by the Trump Administration to be implemented on Monday, the protests against the despotic, theocratic government in Iran are reaching a new level, with protesters reportedly chanting, "Death to the dictator," a reference to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Noting the recent revelations that Iran's leaders are raking in millions while the people suffer economic deprivation, some protesters also chanted, "The nation is forced to beg while the leader lives like God," according to the National Council of Resistance (NCR) of Iran. Iran's state-run news agency IRNA reported that on Tuesday and Wednesday, roughly 200 people demonstrated in the city of Karaj, west of Tehran. In videos reportedly from Gohardasht, a suburb of Karaj, demonstrators have been shouting "Death to the dictator." In Sari, roughly 100 people protested; other protests occurred in Shiraz, Ahavz and Mashhad.

M. Hanif Jazayeri of the NCR stated, "Mullahs must answer for wasting Iran's wealth on terror." Maryam Rajavi, NCR's president-elect, has said the regime must be toppled. She stated, "Protesters will not rest until the Iranian people and the nation are free . . . Iran's risen and revolting cities are joining the protests, one after the other. The cry for freedom is becoming louder, and the uprising is expanding more and more every moment. There is no force more powerful than the united force of young people." (Read more)

- Father God, we pray that the Iranian people will call out to the Lord God Almighty, repent of their sins, and become a nation cleansed from dead works to serve the living God of heaven. We pray in the Name of Jesus the Savior.

- "But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea let them exceedingly rejoice." (Psalm 68:3)

11. Trump's 'Arab NATO' plan to counter Iran draws strong global reactions - Washington Times

President Trump's plan to gather Arab Gulf leaders in Washington for an October summit to create a military alliance against Iran has stirred optimism, curiosity and outrage on the world stage of opinion this week. Informally dubbed "Arab NATO," the recently discussed alliance is a Saudi-led effort to counter Iran by coordinating missile defenses, military training and counter-terrorism measures - and would include the six Arab Gulf states in addition to Egypt and Jordan. The Washington summit is tentatively set for Oct. 12-13.

The United Arab Emirates' lead English-language paper, The Gulf News, firmly supported the effort in an editorial: "'Arab Nato' can counter Iran more effectively". The Gulf News goes on to applaud the Trump administration's "hardline stance" on terrorism and withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal, which it says has "alarmed Iran." Creating a NATO-like regional alliance "would be another step in this direction" it concludes. (Read more)

- Lord God in heaven, we pray You strengthen President Trump as he gathers the Arab Gulf leaders in Washington in October. Fill his mouth with wisdom as he speaks with great spiritual powerful thrust that will break down every opposing nation and bring them into agreement with the plans outlined by President Trump. We pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.

- "O clap your hands, all you people, shout unto God with the voice of triumph. For the Lord most high is terrible; He is a great King over all the earth. He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet." (Psalm 1-3)

12. U.S. Issues New Warning to Europe: End Business With Iran or Face Harsh Sanctions - FreeBeacon

Congress and the Trump administration are issuing a stern warning to European partners: End all business ties with the Iranian regime or face harsh new sanctions in the coming months, a move that could impact international financial markets and U.S. banks tied to foreign monetary institutions, according to multiple senior U.S. officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon about diplomatic efforts to pressure Europe on Iran.

Key European partners have expressed opposition to the new U.S. sanctions in recent months and have held a series of meetings with senior Iranian officials to discuss tactics for evading the new American sanctions, which follow on the heels on President Donald Trump's decision to abandon the landmark nuclear deal.

The increased financial pressure is part of a larger effort by the Trump administration and its allies in Congress to further choke the Iranian economy as dissident protesters in the Islamic Republic continue to rail against the hardline regime for its spending on foreign interventionism in hotspots such as Syria and its continued support for international terror groups. (Read more)

- Lord God, we pray You continue standing with President Trump by giving him wisdom, knowledge, and understanding about international financial markets. Lord, render to Europe and the EU, penny for penny, the needed adjustments so that our nation is not taken advantage of. May that nation bow before a merciful God, pleading for forgiveness of their sins. In the Name of Jesus we pray.

- "Save us, O God, for the waters are come in unto our souls. Europe sinks in deep mire, where there is no standing: we are come into deep waters where the floods overflow us." (Psalm 69:1-2)

Socialism increasing in America

The Daily Caller reports, "Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) says it currently has 57 registered chapters on college campuses, according to Democratic Socialists of America Program Associate Lawrence Dreyfuss, up from just 15 in 2016. YDSA has experienced 280 percent increase in the number of clubs from 2016 to 2018." YSDA previously reported it had over 250 registered chapters, but Dreyfuss told the Daily Caller those 250 campuses initially expressed interest (they filled out a form), but in terms of establishing an active chapter, they wound up with 57. A 2016 Gallup Poll indicated that 55% of 18-29 year olds view socialism as positive. The Democratic Party leadership believes it's the "future of the party."

It also doesn't work economically. William Bradford described the Pilgrim's failed socialist experiment of The Virginia Company Charter in "Of Plymouth Plantation": "The experience that was had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years and amongst godly and sober men, may well evince the vanity of that conceit of Plato's and other ancients applauded by some of later times; that the taking away of property and bringing in community into a commonwealth would make them happy and flourishing, as if they were wiser than God." Bradford was familiar with Plato's "Republic" espousing a utopian society under socialism. In ending this experiment that nearly cost the colony their lives, Bradford wrote: "...God in his wisdom saw another course fitter for them." This was the first capitalist system and the Plymouth colony then prospered.
Unfortunately, many Christians believe in socialism, citing Acts 2:44, "And all that believed were together and had (shared) all things in common." There is a tremendous difference between voluntarily sharing and being forced to share the fruits of your labor by the government. This is a far cry from the blessing of voluntarily sharing with others. . As Solomon writes in Ecclesiastes 3:13, "every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God." Responsible Capitalism is aligned with the Biblical principle that whatever you sow, you will also reap. The first commandment, Exodus 20:1 says, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." That includes government. Moreover, Bradford is still right. Man is not wiser than God. Young people would be wise to heed his advice. But they also must be taught why it's so dangerous.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Classic Hymns


"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father . . . So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." (Matthew 10:29-31)


Why should I feel discouraged, Why should the shadows come, Why should my heart be lonely, And long for Heav'n and home, When Jesus is my portion? My constant friend is He: His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me; His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me.


I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

"Let not your heart be troubled," His tender word I hear, And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears; Though by the path He leadeth, But one step I may see; His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me; His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me.


Whenever I am tempted, Whenever clouds arise, When songs give place to sighing, When hope within me dies, I draw the closer to Him, From care He sets me free; His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me; His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me.

Air Force remains silent after huge meteor hits near US military base - Fox News

A meteor hit the earth and exploded with 2.1 kilotons of force last month, but the US Air Force has made no mention of the event.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed an object of unspecified size travelling at 24.4 kilometres per second struck earth in Greenland, just 43 kilometres north of an early missile warning Thule Air Base on the 25th of July, 2018.

Director of the Nuclear Information Project for the Federation of American Scientists, Hans Kristensen, tweeted about the impact, but America's Air Force has not reported the event.

Mr. Kristensen argues it's concerning there was no public warning from the US government about the incident.

"Had it entered at a more perpendicular angle, it would have struck the earth with significantly greater force," he writes on Business Insider. (Read more)

"Another Page In the Book of Acts is Being Written":
the Enemy Wants to Empty the Middle East of Christians, But They're Standing Strong

The Church in the Middle East has gone through some dark days in recent years. Some say the lives of Believers today reflect the heroes and heroines of the past in the place where Christianity was born. Across the Middle East, Christians and the Church have suffered terrible persecution. Yet there is tremendous optimism there.

"I see the Church is standing and standing strong, with all of the difficulties and with all of the atrocities and all of the persecution," Yvette Isaac with Roads of Success told CBN News. "But they are all standing strong; they know why they are standing."

Egyptian-born Yvette Isaac believes that's because Christians in the Middle East are continuing the testimony of the early Believers.

"I really believe, every day in this part of the world another page of the Book of Acts is being written," she said. "Every day, a new page of the Book of the Acts is being written, added."

Isaac wants the Church in the West to know what's happening there.

"There are brothers and sisters-Christian brothers and sisters-who are living there," she continued. "And if it wasn't for them, first, we would not hear about Christianity in the West. Because of the Church in the Middle East, Christianity spread all over the world."

We are now reading the Word of God every night (except on Sunday mornings) from midnight to 6:00 a.m. EDT. We are reading through the whole Word, from Genesis to Revelation, and beginning again in Genesis when finished.

Our numbers of readers continues to grow over time. All are welcome to join!

The access code is: 206425#. Please call at any time from midnight to 6:00 a.m. EST. WELCOME!

[Note: we are reading from these versions of the Scripture: King James, New King James, New American Standard, and NIV.]

Pray for America!

Repentance and Restoration Prayer Line

Editor's note from CHPP:

For many years now, the Salt & Light Council has sponsored this outstanding half-hour of prayer, six days per week, with additional time available for Bible reading and fellowship.

We are delighted to make this "hidden treasure" available to all of you who make up our CHPP family.

You can also view their daily prayer calendar by going here.

The following press release was issued by the Salt and Light Council. Praise the Lord!

This is a 30 minute national conference prayer call offered Monday through Saturday. We pray daily for our President, Cabinet, Supreme Court, one or two state legislatures, preambles, plus a moral topic and Israel. All are welcome to participate in prayer for our nation. Fellowship and Bible reading is optional for those who would like to remain on the line. The call is hosted by The Salt & Light Council.
