Mendocino Fire

Mendocino Complex fires become largest in California history- Fox News

Two wildfires blazing in California, known as the Mendocino Complex fire, became the largest recorded in state history on Monday, crossing a grim milestone.

The fire, in Colusa, Lake and Mendocino counties, has killed two people and burned almost 283,800 acres as of Monday. It has destroyed at least 143 structures, including 75 homes, according to Cal Fire officials. More than 9,000 structures remain under threat.

The Mendocino complex fires, which encompass an area the size of Los Angeles, surpassed the Thomas wildfire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, which burned 281,893 acres last year. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for these areas that are ravaged by fire. We pray these fires STOP in Jesus name. Give strength to those fighting these fires. Protect lives, homes, and possessions.

- Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul takes refuge in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction passes by. (Psalm 57:1)

Focus on Israel

1. Report: Hamas political leadership supports agreement with Israel - Jerusalem Post

Hamas has decided to endorse a "staggered" ceasefire with Israel, which would begin with an end to the launching of incendiary kites and balloons and, in exchange, Israel's lifting of the latest sanctions imposed on the Gaza Strip, according to a report in the London-based Arabic newspaper Al-Sharq al-Awsat.

Hamas sources said that the Palestinian factions were informed of the decision by the ruling organization's political office that in exchange for the cessation of all attacks against the border fence, Israel would open the Kerem Shalom crossing to the transfer of goods and the fishing zone would be expanded.

The two sides would then proceed to the second stage that would include a prisoner exchange and, in parallel, the beginning of large infrastructure projects in Gaza and preparations for the complete lifting of the blockade on the Gaza Strip.

Husam Badran, a senior Hamas official, announced that the whole agreement with Israel must be approved by all the Palestinian factions.

2. Report: Gaza truce talks focus on easing blockade in return for calm - Israel Hayom

Israel on
Sunday set out limited goals for truce talks with Hamas, saying the focus is on a proposal to ease the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip in return for Hamas, the terrorist group that rules Gaza, calming its side of the border.

The London-based Arab newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat
reported Monday that Hamas leaders have expressed interest in reaching a gradual arrangement with Israel.

In the first stage of the deal, Hamas would cease
its border riot and arson terrorism campaigns in exchange for the full reopening of the Kerem Shalom border crossing, the main cargo crossing into Gaza from Israel, and an expansion of the fishing zone off Gaza's coast, currently 6 nautical miles.

The cease-fire talks, held against the backdrop of
several massive flare-ups on the Israel-Gaza border in recent weeks, aim to prevent an escalation that would lead to another war between the Jewish state and the Islamist terrorist group.

3. PLO: Harming UNRWA will lead to violence - Israel National News

Ahmad Abu Holi, a member of the PLO Executive Committee who holds the position of the Chairman of the PLO's "Refugees Affairs Department", said on Monday that the United States does not have the right to determine the fate of the mandate of UNRWA, the UN agency in charge of "Palestinian refugees". In a statement quoted by the official Palestinian Authority news agency Wafa, Abu Holi rejected the call made by the White House to change UNRWA's mandate, pointing out that such a call is coupled with the hostility campaign led by the Israeli government against UNRWA and with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's accusations that its continued mandate has perpetuated and prolonged the refugee issue.

Abu Holi said that UNRWA will continue its work as mandated by the United Nations, providing services to "Palestinian refugees" until the implementation of Resolution 194 and the return of the refugees to the homes they were displaced from in 1948.

He stressed that UNRWA is a stabilizing factor in the region and any attempt to eliminate it will push the region into more violence and instability.

4. Netanyahu fumes as most ministers skip meeting on nation-state law - Times of Israel

Only five ministers showed up to the inaugural meeting of a committee established to deal with Druze and Circassian objections to the Jewish nation-state law on Monday, drawing anger from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu, who heads the committee, demanded that the other six explain their absence and said he would not allow absences at the next meeting in a week.

During the meeting it was agreed that legislation will be advanced to clarify the equal status of the minorities despite the summer recess, and that it will passed into law during the coming winter session, Hadashot TV news reported. The planned legislation will also define the status of minority community members who serve in the armed forces.

"It is important to make the right decisions, and not reckless ones," Netanyahu told the ministers who did show up. "We worked on the Jewish nation-state law for eight years. I am not saying that we will work on this for another eight years, but it will also not be eight days."

5. Syria Blames Israel For Assassination Of Top Scientist- Jerusalem Post

Syria has pointed the finger at Israel as being behind the assassination of Dr. Aziz Asbar, a senior scientist who was killed in a car bomb Saturday night in Masyaf in Hama Governorate.

Syria's Arabic-language daily al-Watan said that Israel's Mossad secret service agency was behind Asbar's assassination.

The scientist's driver was also killed in the blast.

Israel, which does not respond to foreign reports, had no comment on the assassination.

But Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman downplayed the possibility of Israeli involvement, telling Hadashot News that "Every day in the Middle East there are hundreds of explosions and settling of scores. Every time they try to place the blame on us. So we won't take this too seriously."

The Daily Brief

1. Trump reimposes Iran nuclear deal sanctions - The Hill

The Trump administration announced Monday the reimposition of sanctions on Iran that were lifted as part of a nuclear agreement with the country.

The sanctions will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday and follow through on the order President Trump gave when he withdrew from the nuclear pact in May.

"The United States is fully committed to enforcing all of our sanctions, and we will work closely with nations conducting business with Iran to ensure complete compliance. Individuals or entities that fail to wind down activities with Iran risk severe consequences," Trump said in a statement Monday.

"The JCPOA, a horrible, one-sided deal, failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb, and it threw a lifeline of cash to a murderous dictatorship that has continued to spread bloodshed, violence, and chaos," he added, using the acronym for the official name of the nuclear deal. (Read more)

> > > To read this statement from the White House, go here.

- Father, we pray that these sanctions will bring about a real nuclear deal that is productive and safe for all Western interests. We ask that the regime in Iran be removed.

- "He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked shall be silent in darkness."
(1 Sam 2:9)

2. Protests in Iran Hit Boiling Point, Amplifying Calls for Regime Change - Free Beacon

New sanctions to further choke an already ailing regime

Protests against Iran's hardline ruling regime hit a boiling point over the weekend, as demonstrators took to the streets for the sixth consecutive day in the face of efforts by the regime to beat and arrest those seeking regime change in the Islamic Republic, according to multiple reports from the region.

Curfews have been imposed in parts of the country amid nightly demonstrations by Iranian dissidents who have been heard chanting, "death to the dictator" and "Mullahs should go away."

At least one protester was shot and killed by Iranian security forces over the weekend, but that does not appear to have quelled opposition to the Iranian ruling regime, which was smacked Monday with the first portion of harsh new sanctions by the Trump administration following the president's decision to abandon the landmark nuclear deal that provided Iran's leaders with millions in cash windfalls.

The ongoing protests have been percolating for weeks as dissidents take to the streets across Iran to protest the hardline ruling regime and its massive military spending, which has crippled an already weak Iranian economy. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray for a mighty move of Your Holy Spirit over all the people of Iran, returning them to freedom and prosperity, bringing hope and life.

- "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

3. Two Koreas Hold Military Talks as US Detects Missile Activity in North Korea - NewsMax

North and South Korea held military talks to build trust on Tuesday, while the United States detected renewed activity at a North Korean missile factory, casting more suspicion over the North's intentions. The meeting, their second since June, held in the border village of Panmunjom in the demilitarised zone (DMZ), was designed to follow on from an inter-Korean summit in April at which leaders of the two Koreas agreed to defuse tensions and halt "all hostile acts."

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also vowed during his separate summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore last month to work toward denuclearisation, but there has not been a concrete agreement to accomplish that goal. Kim Do-gyun, the South's chief negotiator who is in charge of North Korea policy at the defence ministry, told reporters before leaving for the DMZ that he would make efforts to craft "substantive" measures to ease tensions and build trust.

The two sides are expected to discuss a possible cut in firearms and personnel stationed at the DMZ, as well as a joint excavation of the remains of soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War. Ahn Ik-san, the general leading the North Korean delegation at the military talks, noted South Korean news reports suggesting that he might try to persuade the South to push for a joint declaration with the United States to formally end the war. "Before determining whether it is true or not, I realised the people of the North and South regard our talks as important," Ahn said at the start of the meeting. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that these talks will be productive and that You will find a path to peace. We pray that Your Spirit will move among the people of both nations changing hearts.

- "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved." (John 3:17)

4. Feinstein's Personal Driver Of 20 Years Was A Chinese Spy - The Federalist

Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office was infiltrated by a Chinese spy who worked as her driver and attended official functions on her behalf for 20 years, according to new reports from Politico and The San Francisco Chronicle. Feinstein reportedly had no idea that her office was being infiltrated by a man who was feeding information to an individual linked to China's Ministry of State Security. She was "mortified" when the FBI showed up at her Washington DC office five years ago to warn her about the mole.

Feinstein, who was serving as chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time, had access to classified intelligence that would be extremely valuable to the Chinese government. She forced her driver to resign shortly thereafter and did not tell her staff about the incident, according to an unnamed source cited in the Chronicle.

In her capacity as a ranking member on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Feinstein unilaterally released testimony from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson to the public earlier this year, violating committee precedent. When she released these records, she failed to disclose that one of her former staffers, Daniel Jones, had hired Fusion GPS and ex-British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Donald Trump after the 2016 election.

- Lord, we pray that from now on that all Congressional members would do demand background checks of their staffers, and wisely choose among them. Grant them Your wisdom and discernment to know who are safe people and who are deceivers.

5. 200 active-duty soldiers to deploy to battle wildfires, defense officials say - Fox News

One day after President Trump declared the California wildfires a "major disaster," the U.S. military said it's preparing to deploy hundreds of active-duty soldiers with engineering specialties to combat the blazes, Fox News has learned.

Roughly 200 active-duty U.S. Army soldiers from Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state will ship out in the coming days, according to two defense officials. The unit will ship out after training to combat fires this week, one official said.

The soldiers are from the 14th Brigade Engineer Battalion of the 2nd Infantry Division.

The combat engineers specialize in demolition and construction, normally as used in combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, where the unit has deployed over the past decade. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up the wildfires raging across the Western United States and ask for Your mercy over the land, over the livestock and animals, and over the people. We pray for a move of Your Spirit in repentance, in hope, and in Your comfort. Amen.

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

6. Moms arrested after 11 children found in 'filthy' New Mexico compound with armed Muslim 'extremists,' cops say - Fox News

The three mothers of the 11 malnourished children found living in a filthy New Mexico compound were arrested and charged Sunday along with two men described as armed Muslim "extremists" after authorities raided the property in search of a 4-year-old boy.

Jany Leveille, 35; Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, and Subhannah Wahha, 35, were arrested and charged with neglect and child abuse of the children. The three women, who were found at the compound in Amalia, initially refused to answer any questions. Siraj Wahhaj, 39, and Lucas Morten also face child abuse charges.

Authorities raided the compound Friday as part of their search for 4-year-old Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, who vanished last December. Abdul-Ghani's mother reported her son missing after Wahhaj took the boy, who turned 4 on Monday, to the park in Clayton County, Ga., and didn't return, The Albuquerque Journal reported. She added the boy suffers from a medical condition. (Read more)

- Father this despicable situation shows how important is the security of our borders. We pray Your mercy and healing over these children, and justice for all who have harmed them.

- "Do justice to the afflicted and needy." (Psalm 82:3b)

7. Trump Says He's Working to Pass FIRST STEP Act - FreeBeacon

Speaking to a meeting with inner city pastors at the White House, Trump emphasized the work that his administration has done to create jobs, including recently released inmates. He tied this expanded opportunity for prisoners to passage of the FIRST STEP Act, a prison reform proposal wending its way through Congress. "When we say 'hire American,' we mean all Americans-every American, everybody," he added.

Prison reform-restructuring the experience of incarcerees in prison and reforming reentry protocols-has been on Trump's radar since at least the State of the Union, when he mentioned it among his policy priorities for 2018. The focus is likely the work of presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, who has pushed for prison reform from his perch in the White House.

"Prisoners have never, ever, even close, done better than they've done now when they get out, because they're getting jobs. And the reason is, it's hard to get people because we're pretty well filled up. So for the first time probably, I think I could say, ever, they're getting a break," Trump said. (Read more) (Read more)

- Father we pray that prison reform would come in a way that preserves the protection of American citizens, and true justice for arrested persons.

- "For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed at all those who wait in Him."
(Isaiah 30:18c,d)

8. Senate Bill To Require Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity Data By 2030 Census - NPR

A group of Democratic senators have introduced a bill on Tuesday that would require the U.S. census and the country's largest survey to start directly asking about sexual orientation and gender identity.

If the Census Equality Act becomes law, sexual orientation and gender identity questions would have to be added to forms for the census by 2030 and for the American Community Survey - a survey that about 1 in 38 households are required by federal law to complete every year - by 2020.

Forms for both the American Community Survey and the census - which the Constitution requires every person in the U.S. to take part in - have long allowed people to select "male" or "female" as their sex.

In March, the U.S. Census Bureau announced that the 2020 census questionnaires will include new relationship categories differentiating between "same-sex" and "opposite-sex" couples. That change, some demographers say, could produce the most comprehensive national data yet on same-sex couples. (Read more)

- Father, we pray that You will grant wisdom to the people who are designing this census, and show them truth. You have made two genders, and placating those who do not love You is a bad idea.

- "Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves." (Romans1:24)

9. Berkeley police arrest 20, seize 'dozens of weapons' at opposing protests - Fox News

Berkeley, Calif., police arrested 20 people Sunday and confiscated "dozens of weapons" as members of so-called "alt-right" and far-left groups gathered in the city for opposing protests.

In addition to the arrests, officials said three people suffered minor injuries after a group of "extremists" threw "explosives" -- believed to be fireworks and flares -- at police and Alameda County Sheriff's officers. No members of law enforcement were hurt.

Berkeley police also said that "an extremist element among a large group" damaged 21 city vehicles, setting one on fire, and slashed their tires. The group also set fires in trash bins, which were extinguished quickly. Two groups of alt-right protesters had announced plans for a "No to Marxism" rally at the city's Civic Center Park earlier in the week. That prompted plans for a "Sweep Out The Fascists" march and counter-rally that drew hundreds of people downtown.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that several dozen "anti-Marxist" protesters arrived at Civic Center at 12:30 p.m. At one point, the group pushed books off a table set up by a local Communist bookstore, but police and bystanders stepped in to head off any potential confrontation. (Read more)

- Father, we pray that somehow You would put an end to the continual confrontations between "right and left." There appears to be no such thing as a "peaceful" protest these days. Only You, O Lord, can bring true peace in these cases, so we pray that You begin to help these ones repent for their actions.

- "Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand!" (Matthew 3:2)

10. Antifa protesters accost conservatives Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens at Philadelphia café - Fox News

Two prominent conservative activists were accosted Monday outside a Philadelphia restaurant by a group of profanity-hurling protesters allegedly aligned with Antifa. Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk and communications director Candace Owens were attempting to eat breakfast at the Green Eggs Café near Center City, when the group gathered outside and aggressively harassed them.

In video footage posted on Owens' Twitter page, the protesters can be seen shouting and blowing whistles in the conservative commentators' faces while chanting "(xxx) white supremacy." Owens is black. (Read more)

- Lord, it is becoming increasingly dangerous for conservatives in every area of our society - even going out to eat. We pray for Your comfort for these two people, and Your power to be made manifest against actions such as these. Show yourself mighty, Lord on behalf of all who belong to You.

- "The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits." (Daniel 11:32b)

​​​​​Socialism increasing in America

People are always asking me how to discern whether a news story is biased, fake news or deceptive. An excellent example is an AP story by Andrew Selsky headlined, "Oregon Police Chief Orders Review of Use of Force at Protest." It is a story about how Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw is launching an investigation of Portland police. The police tried to prevent violence at a protest rally where Antifa, labor unions and democratic socialist groups mixed it up with free-speech advocates Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys. The Antifa crowd was ordered to disperse, but instead became aggressive, prompting a police riot response. The police are being accused of using excessive force. Now for the twist.

The story makes out Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys as the "alt-right," Nazi, Trump-supporting extremists who were holding a protest, and the reasonable left-wing Antifa and democratic socialist groups showed up as the heroes to counter-protest these conservative threats to society. Selsky writes: "Saturday's incidents started with demonstrators aligned with Patriot Prayer and an affiliated group, the Proud Boys, gathering in a riverfront park. The Proud Boys has been characterized as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is "dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society."" But the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is itself extreme.

The SPLC consistently has made news and raised money from anti-American leftists for its hate designations, even against mainstream Christian organizations. Remember SPLC was named the provocateur behind the 2012 shooting at the Washington, DC, office of the Family Research Council (FRC). Floyd Corkins confessed to the FBI that he intended to commit mass murder and was motivated by the so-called "Hate Map" on the SPLC website that listed FRC as a "hate group."The D.C. shooter, who in 2017 gunned down Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) and four others, was a Facebook fan of the SPLC. SPLC has equated numerous Christian ministries with the Ku Klux Klan and Neo-Nazis as hate groups because the ministries are pro-life and also support the Biblical definition of marriage between one man and one woman.

Patriot Prayer's Facebook page appears to support free speech and religious freedom. The Proud Boys website is a bit edgy in its rhetoric against the neo-Marxist left-wing agenda. Both are pro-Trump. SPLC maintains on its website that these groups instigate violence against Antifa and others. Antifa and the democratic socialists, however, often start the violence under the pretense that they are standing against Nazism. The slant of the AP story is decidedly pro-Antifa, painting these Marxist anarchists as American patriots, disguising its bias by quoting SPLC, ACLU, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and Democratic Socialists of America. With whom do these groups align? That is one way of discerning the bias. As Jesus said in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you."

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Classic Hymns


"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." (Ephesians 2:8)


Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy grace;
streams of mercy, never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount I'm fixed upon it
mount of God's redeeming love.

Here I find my greatest treasure;
hither by thy help I've come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God;
he, to rescue me from danger,
bought me with his precious blood.

Oh, to grace how great a debtor
daily I'm constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
bind my wandering heart to thee:
prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
prone to leave the God I love;
here's my heart, O take and seal it;
seal it for thy courts above.

Words: Robert Robinson, 1758

Music: John Wyeth (1770-1858)

In 1752, a young Robert Robinson attended an evangelical meeting to heckle the believers and make fun of the proceedings. Instead, he listened in awe to the words of the great preacher George Whitefield, and in 1755, at the age of twenty, Robinson responded to the call he felt three years earlier and became a Christian. Another three years later, when preparing a sermon for his church in Norfolk, England, he penned the words that have become one of the church's most-loved hymns: "Come, thou fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace."

Using imagery of Christ as the giver of living water and the shepherd gathering his sheep back into the fold, this hymn reminds the worshipper of the ever bountiful grace of God. Like Robinson, we too are "prone to wander," and are quick to seek redemption through our own power. But God continues to bring us back from our wandering, until, songs of praise on our lips, we dance forever before the mount of His redeeming love.

Hurricane Hector: Category 4 storm heads toward Hawaii

Hurricane Hector strengthened to a Category 4 storm Saturday as it churned toward the Central Pacific. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the Hawaiian Islands should monitor the storm's progress.

As of 8 p.m. ET Sunday, Hector was located about 1,130 miles east-southeast of South Point, Hawaii, with maximum sustained winds of 140 mph moving west at 14 mph.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles, the NHC said in its latest advisory.

NHC also said that Hector was about to cross into the central Pacific basin as a Category 4 storm. (CBS News) Read more.

"You Have to Leave Now":

Wildfire Evacuees Heard the Voice of God Just Before Disaster Struck

(Redding, CA)-[CBN News] While the California Carr fire rages on, Christian prophetic leader Pastor Shawn Bolz shared with CBN News a spiritual perspective on how God is moving through this tragedy.

"I felt like the Holy Spirit said 'pray Romans 8:28 over these fires and over these people,' which is 'And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose,'" Bolz said.

He said he's been hesitant to share what he's hearing from the Lord because there have been so many wildfires and natural disasters, but he believes a spiritual revival will be birthed from this catastrophe. He compares the Carr fire to the devastating 1906 San Francisco earthquake which caused an urgency in Christians to bring salvation to people in the city and then led to a great awakening in America and movements like the Azusa Street Revival.

Bolz says he's already hearing stories of miracles happening in the midst of destruction.

"I've heard individual stories of people who were saved miraculously who heard from the Lord 'you have to leave now' and when they left, their house burned down," recounted Bolz. "That was one of the saddest ones-family who left right in time and they weren't being evacuated, no one told them there was an evacuation at that time. The fire, I think, was a lot further away and God spoke to them, 'get out of your house,' and they were able to get out."
