2. Woods 'exploded': California pastor tells of surviving deadly Camp Fire by sheltering in church - Christian Post

A pastor who has survived one of the deadly wildfires ravaging parts of California has spoken of how he and others escaped by taking refuge in his church building. Doug Crowder, pastor of Magalia Pines Baptist Church, told Baptist Press he was helping evacuate around 30 people from the town because of the danger from the Camp Fire, one of the worst in California's history.

The group was in the driveway of the church preparing to leave when suddenly 'the woods exploded. The Subway restaurant across the street exploded, and on all sides of us was fire.' They took refuge in the church building, watching the flames consume neighbouring buildings. Thousands of gallons of propane detonated at a hardware store next door.

Crowder told BP that when they emerged the next day, everything around the church had been destroyed but they were 'totally unscathed'. Most residents of Magalia and nearby Paradise had already gone, but Crowder had stayed to help the elderly, homeless and others who had been unable to leave. His own home was destroyed along with those of three-quarters of the congregation, and his church is one of the only buildings left standing in the town. It is currently being used to house firefighters. (Read more)

3. Dad Sings to Calm Petrified Daughter as They Drive through Raging California Inferno: MUST SEE Video-

The drive from Paradise to Chico is normally a brief 20-minute dash. During the fire, it became a four-hour test of survival.

When Paradise resident Joe Allen sped through the flame-flanked roads in a bid to evacuate his local area, his 3-year-old daughter was understandably distraught. The scene was something out of a horror movie, as the inferno raged all around the family vehicle and threatened to block them from finding safety.

"There's so much fire here. We're gonna get on fire," daughter Olivia can be heard saying on the video, as reported by NBC News.

At this point, sensing his daughter's distress, Joe begins to sing the words, "Baby, it'll be alright," to keep her calm.

When he finally scrapes by the blazing flames, Olivia shouts out in delight, "You did it! You did it!"

"We did it together," Joe responds. (Read more and view video here.)

From their perch atop Trancas Canyon, straddling the Ventura-Los Angeles county line, the staff at Creative Care addiction treatment center could see signs of the large fire building Thursday.

But by early Friday morning, the frantic warnings from neighbors and the thickening smoke made the threat clear: Their 35 clients, in the process of supervised addiction recovery, and their caregivers, would have to leave.

The group packed bags, gathered critical medicine and tended to horses used for equine therapy. And then they all made a slow journey past the smoke and fire engines and down a jammed Pacific Coast Highway, the poor cellphone service and closed gas stations making the exodus even more perilous.

People who lost homes in California's deadliest and most destructive wildfire sued Pacific Gas & Electric Co. on Tuesday, accusing the utility of negligence and blaming it for the fire.

PG&E did not maintain its infrastructure and failed to properly inspect and manage its power transmission lines, according to the lawsuit filed in state court by more than two dozen fire victims.

The fire, which has killed at least 48 people and devastated the Northern California town of Paradise, was a "direct and legal result of the negligence, carelessness, recklessness, and/or unlawfulness" of PG&E, the lawsuit said. The lawsuit seeks compensation for the plaintiffs' losses and unspecified damages. (Read more)

5. Woolsey Fire: Flare-ups cause concern in Conejo; Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to visit - Ventura County Star

The Woolsey Fire continued to challenge fire personnel Tuesday as a massive flare-up near Lake Sherwood sent a plume of smoke hundreds of feet into the air and caused worry among already hard-hit residents.

Aircraft pounded Tuesday's flare-up with water and fire retardant. The sky was dark above them and there were flames up along the ridge line, said Steve Gunner. "It was like a war zone up there," he said.

. . . The increased fire activity came as U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced he will visit California regions impacted by wildfires, including communities hit by the Woolsey Fire.

Conditions permitting, Zinke will visit areas affected by the Camp Fire in Northern California on Wednesday before traveling south to the Woolsey burn area on Thursday, according to the U.S. Department of the Interior. (Read more)

Focus on Israel

1. One dead, 85 injured as Gaza rocket fire rains down - World Israel News

A 48-year-old man was killed when a rocket struck his house in Ashkelon late Monday night.

Mahmoud Abu Asbah, a Palestinian worker who hailed from the town of Halhul north of Hebron, was the first fatality since terrorists began firing rockets Monday afternoon. His 40-year-old wife was found in serious condition and evacuated to Barzilai Hospital.

A second woman, unconscious and badly injured, was found in the same building and evacuated to Barzilai Medical Center in critical but stable condition. Magen David Adom paramedic Eyal Chen said, "After the rocket landed, we searched the area, the fire department broke into one apartment which was locked and there we found a 60-year-old woman, unconscious with blast wounds and multiple injuries."

Medics also evacuated a 19-year-old soldier to Soroka Hospital in Beersheva earlier Monday. He is listed in serious condition after a Kornet anti-tank missile struck a bus in the Sha'ar Hanegev region near where he was standing. That attack preceded the rocket onslaught.

2. Israel indicates acceptance of Gaza ceasefire reached with Hamas - Times of Israel

Palestinian terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip announced that Egypt brokered a ceasefire agreement between them and Israel on Tuesday evening, after over 460 rockets and mortar shells were fired at southern Israel over the course of 25 hours.

A senior Israeli diplomatic official appeared to confirm the reported armistice. First reports said the decision to accept a ceasefire agreement with Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and other terror groups in Gaza was taken by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at Tuesday's seven-hour meeting of the security cabinet without being put to a vote. Four ministers quickly said they opposed it.

"Israel maintains its right to act. Requests from Hamas for a ceasefire came through four different mediators. Israel responded that the events on the ground will decide [if a ceasefire will go into effect]," the Israeli official said, on condition of anonymity.

As an apparent ceasefire went into effect between Israel and Hamas on Tuesday evening after two days of rocket fire on Israeli towns and retaliatory strikes by Israel, the terror group that rules Gaza sought to depict the cessation of hostilities as a dramatic victory for its side.

In southern Israel, by contrast, demonstrators protested against the ceasefire.

Demonstrations by Palestinians in Gaza were held throughout the coastal enclave, with marches taking place in Khan Younis, Gaza City, Jabalya, and Rafah, Palestinian media outlets reported.

4. Security Council fails to agree on how to deal with Gaza crisis - Israel National News

The UN Security Council met behind closed doors on Tuesday to discuss the escalation of violence in Gaza but there was no agreement on how to address the crisis, diplomats said, according to AFP.

Kuwait, which represents Arab countries at the council, and Bolivia requested the meeting following the worst flareup in Gaza since the 2014 war between Hamas and Israel.

Addressing reporters after the 50-minute meeting, Palestinian Authority (PA) envoy Riyad Mansour said the council was "paralyzed" and had "failed to shoulder its responsibility" to take action to end the violence.

"There is one country that is not allowing discussion at the council," Mansour told reporters, in a reference to the United States.

There was no statement from the council on the crisis. Such statements are agreed by consensus by all 15 council members.

6. State Department: Latest attacks from Gaza makes peace plan 'more urgent' - JNS

(November 13, 2018 / JNS) Despite the latest barrage of rockets being launched by Hamas against Israel, the State Department said on Tuesday that it should not affect the highly anticipated rollout of the peace plan between Israel and the Palestinians.

When asked by JNS if the rocket attacks will affect the peace plan, department spokesperson Heather Nauert replied, "Not to my knowledge. I think it makes it more urgent" that the plan be released and implemented. "When you see [rocket attacks], that's the case for peace right there," she added.

Briefing reporters at the State Department on Tuesday, Nauert reaffirmed the State Department's support on Monday for Israel's right to exist.

The Daily Brief

1. Ending Election Fraud - American Thinker

Enough is enough. Election after election, boxes of Democrat ballots show up in counties run by Democratic election supervisors to benefit Democratic candidates who, once they steal their opponent's election night victory, will join the chorus warning of Russian interference in our elections.

Democrats have long pushed for voting ease at the expense of voting integrity, pushing measures from voting by mail, to Motor Voter laws, to same-day registration while opposing voter ID laws which requires people to show up on election day with proof they are who they say they are.

Election day voting with a voter ID eliminates mismatched signatures, misplaced, lost in the mail, or even manufactured ballots that show up only when needed to pull a Democrat to victory. State election boards must be allowed to purge voter rolls of dead people or voters that have moved, often winding up registered to vote in multiple jurisdictions. (Read more)

- Father, we pray every state in our union will adopt laws to require voter ID and the systematic removal of inactive and ineligible voters from their rolls. We also ask You to implement justice upon those who have misrepresented or manipulated the election results.

- Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning's light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it. Therefore, the Lord says: "I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity. (Micah 2:1,3)

2. Judge gives Democrats hope in Georgia, orders review of provisional ballots for governor - Washington Examiner

A federal judge has given Georgia's Democratic candidate for governor new hope by ordering election officials to review provisional ballots that could get her close to her Republican opponent.

Republican Brian Kemp is leading Democrat Stacey Abrams by almost 60,000 votes, and county election officials are expected to finalize their results on Tuesday. Kemp is up by about 1.5 percentage points, and has just over 50 percent of the total vote, enough to win the election outright.

But late Monday, U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg ordered officials to review about 27,000 provisional ballots, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Those ballots allowed votes to be cast by people whose registration or identification couldn't be confirmed. (Read more)

- Father, we ask You to give us justice in our courts. Help us remove those who give legal cover for the lawless deeds of political allies.

- How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah.
(Psalm 82:2)

3. State of Maryland asks judge to declare Rosenstein acting attorney general - NBC

The state of Maryland asked a federal judge on Tuesday for an order declaring that Rod Rosenstein is the acting attorney general - not Matt Whitaker, who was appointed to that position last week after the forced resignation of Jeff Sessions. The Justice Department would immediately appeal any such ruling, and the case could be on a fast track to the Supreme Court.

Maryland says that Whitaker's selection by Trump violated federal law and exceeded the appointment authority in the Constitution. Trump named Whitaker acting attorney general under a law known as the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. It allows a president to fill a vacant Cabinet position with a senior employee of the affected agency. Whitaker fits in that category, because he had been the chief of staff to Sessions.

But Maryland urges the judge to rule that a separate federal law actually governs what happens when the office of attorney general is vacant. It provides that the deputy attorney general takes over, which would be Rosenstein. As the state sees it, the Vacancies Reform Act is more general law, which must give way whenever a specific law provides for filling a Cabinet-level vacancy. (Read more)

- Father, this is a clear usurpation of Executive Authority. We pray the court will quickly affirm the President's authority in this matter.

- Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was. (2 Timothy 3:8-9)

4. Trump nominates Neomi Rao to D.C. Circuit Court to replace Kavanaugh - Washington Times

President Trump is nominating Neomi Rao, head of the White House regulatory affairs office, to the influential federal Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. If confirmed by the Senate, Ms. Rao would fill the seat vacated by Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, who served on the appeals court for 12 years.

Mr. Trump made the announcement at a White House ceremony celebrating Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights. Ms. Rao is administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs within the White House Office of Management and Budget. In that post, she has worked to carry out the president's efforts at reducing regulatory burdens.

She has clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and for Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. During the second term of President George W. Bush, Ms. Rao worked in the White House counsel's office. She later became a tenured professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University. (Read more)

- Father, we pray Your Spirit will prepare Neomi Rao for her confirmation hearings, and ultimately, for this important position on the Federal Appeals Court.

- I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice (Proverbs 8:20)

5. Trump says Secret Service forced him to miss WWI service in France - Washington Examiner

President Trump said Tuesday he was only following orders from the Secret Service when he skipped a ceremony honoring soldiers who died in World War I during his visit to France last week.

Trump faced heavy criticism after the White House announced Saturday the president was skipping the ceremony at the Aisne-Marne American cemetery outside of Paris because of logistical and security concerns related to the rain and visibility. Other world leaders attended, and Trump was criticized for ducking out because of the weather, but Trump said it was logistically impossible to attend.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Sunday that driving to the memorial would have taken two and a half hours each way and would have closed substantial portions of Paris roads on short notice. "President Trump did not want to cause that kind of unexpected disruption to the city and its people," she said. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You for giving President Trump's security team wisdom regarding this event. We ask Your angels to continue protecting our President, his administration, and all of their families from insurrection or harm.

- You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. (Psalm 139:5)

6. Rep. Liz Cheney Is Poised to Win a High-Ranking Role in GOP Leadership - Daily Signal

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming is poised to win the GOP leadership election on Wednesday to become the party's third-ranking member as the Republican conference chair. Cheney is running unopposed following GOP Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers' decision not to re-run for the seat. Consequently, the Wyoming congresswoman will be the only female in the party to hold a leadership position.

As GOP conference chair, Cheney will be at the foreground of House Republican communication strategies, according to The Associated Press. Her responsibilities should include fostering the party's message and organizing regular meetings. As Democrats are slated to take over the House, the GOP is eyeing a more commanding method of communication.

Cheney is poised to take the leadership role just more than 30 years after her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, first held the post in 1987. However, Liz Cheney is slated to hold the seat following her first term in office, while her father was not elected to the role until after his fourth term in Congress. Accordingly, the role potentially marks Liz Cheney as one of the GOP's rising political stars. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for Your perfect will regarding this important position for the Republican leadership.

- An undependable messenger causes a lot of trouble, but the trustworthy and wise messengers release healing wherever they go. (Proverbs 13:17)

7. Law Enforcement Comes Out Strong Against New FIRST STEP - Free Beacon

Leaders of four law enforcement groups slammed the latest version of Senate criminal justice legislation in a Tuesday letter to lawmakers obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Representatives of the Association of Federal Narcotics Agents, the National Association of Assistant U.S. Attorneys, the National Association of Police Organizations, and the National Narcotics Officers' Associations' Coalition cosigned a letter in which they strenuously objected to the latest version of the FIRST STEP Act.

This latest objection from the law enforcement community, directed to Senate Majority and Minority Leaders Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), argues that little has changed in the latest version of FIRST STEP, meaning that law enforcement's opposition should be unwavering. "Our review of the bill reflects no improvements that would reduce our multiple and serious concerns about its deadly and destructive impact upon public safety and our capacity to deter and prosecute crime throughout the country," the letter reads.

"While we support true second chances that bring about the productive return of prisoners to their communities," the letter's authors write, "we also know that many offenders that will benefit from provisions of this legislation have long criminal histories that far exceed the 'second chance' that this legislation is designed to provide. By ignoring that fact alone, this legislation falls far short of those goals and is little more than a sentence leniency measure." (Read more)

- Father, we know it is Your desire to rehabilitate and restore these inmates, especially into situations where they are encouraged to follow You. Give our legislators wisdom as they craft the final bill, and our Pastors the courage and foresight to minister to these people.

- Remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins. (James 5:20)

8. Trump Sends State Department to Nigeria Amid Massacre of Hundreds of Christians by Islamic Radicals - Christian Post

The U.S. State Department is headed to Nigeria this week amid the massacre of hundreds of Christians at the hands of various Islamic radical factions. Killings had spiked in October. International Christian Concern noted that in April 2018, President Donald Trump's administration signed a deal with the Nigerian government for purchasing 12 fighter jets, intended to be used to fight militants and bring an end to the killings of Christians and other civilians.

With the terrorist actions of Boko Haram, and separately other Islamic radicals who are presenting themselves as Fulani herdsmen, continuing in full force, however, ICC said that the Trump administration has "big decisions" to make concerning its strategy with Nigeria. "Many are hoping that this week the Trump administration would stand up in support of religious freedoms in Nigeria," the watchdog group said.

Emeka Umeagbalasi, board chair of the Int'l Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law, shared with The Christian Post that October was one of the deadliest months this year, with Islamic extremists killing 260 Christians and 100 Muslims. Umeagbalasi previously told CP that the Nigerian government is greatly failing to stop what many are calling a genocide against Christians. Thousands of believers have been killed in 2018, with their homes and villages burned down, while churches have been converted into mosques. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up the people of Nigeria and pray that You would deliver them from the scourge of Boko Haram and others who use violence to plunder and control. Give their government the tools and the will to truly solve this problem, reestablishing peace and prosperity for their people.

- Help me, O Lord my God! Oh, save me according to Your mercy, that they may know that this is Your hand- that You, Lord, have done it! (Psalm 109:26-27)

9. Merkel calls for creation of 'real European army' in keynote speech - DPA International

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Tuesday for the eventual creation of a European army during a keynote address to the European Parliament, echoing a similar suggestion by French President Emmanuel Macron.

"We should work on the vision of creating a real European army one day," Merkel said in a speech on the future of Europe to EU lawmakers in the French city of Strasbourg. "A common European army would show the world that there will never again be war between European countries," she added. Her comments came two days after world leaders gathered in Paris for the centenary of the end of World War I.

Last week, Macron had renewed a call for a European army that would give Europe greater independence from the United States. His comments provoked criticism from US President Donald Trump, who has called on European countries to increase their contributions to NATO.

"Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two - How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!" Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

- Father, we pray this European army will not be formed, and that the European Union will not be able to use force to implement their agenda.

- There the workers of iniquity have fallen; they have been cast down and are not able to rise. (Psalm 36:12)

10. Trump administration's trade talks with China back on, as tariffs loom - Washington Examiner

The Trump administration is fully engaged in talks with China on trade issues, a top official said Tuesday. The increase in activity comes ahead of a meeting set for next week between President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Argentina.

"First of all, we are again talking with China and I think that is very, very, very positive," Larry Kudlow, economic adviser to the president, said in an interview on CNBC, adding that the talks were happening "at all levels" of government.

Administration sources have leaked to news agencies last week that tariffs covering as much as $257 billion worth of Chinese goods could be announced next month. The U.S. has already hit $250 billion worth of Chinese goods with tariffs ranging from 10 to 25 percent. The tariffs are set to hit 25 percent across the board next year. Placing the total covered with tariffs at a half-trillion would cover all imports to the U.S. The additional tariffs may come if little progress is made when Trump meets with Jinping at the G-20 summit in Argentina. The White House has expressed cautious optimism that the meeting could ease tension. (Read on)

- Father, we pray our team will have Your wisdom as they negotiate with Chinese representatives. We ask that ultimately, these talks with China will be very successful, and provide both our nations with the economic and financial stability needed to prosper.

- If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5)

Deceiving the elect(orate)

The elections in Florida, Arizona and other places across the country are drawing attention because of massive voter fraud in Democratic Party-controlled areas. Every election in recent memory has had such problems. And they most always point to the Democratic Party doing something to make sure someone's vote doesn't count. Yet this is the party that continuously fights updating voter rolls because "voters will be disenfranchised." Did it ever occur to anyone that once again, these people are accusing those who wish to uphold justice of doing the very thing the accusers have been successfully doing for years? Justice is in short supply when it comes to fair elections. The history of this is incredible.

In looking at the 2012 Presidential Election maps of who voted and where, small pockets of votes carried the election. More amazing to me, as a seasoned political campaign veteran, that in certain precincts, even counties, of the thousands who voted, the Occupant of the Oval Office's challenger received less than .2% of the vote. This is incredible and, quite frankly, not only unbelievable, but against all odds, nearly impossible. According to news reports, one Ohio county reported the "president" won 108 % of the registered voters. Now that is impossible. Members of our military who are serving overseas did not get to vote because military ballots were denied active-duty servicemen and women.

In 2014, in New Mexico, a person went in to vote early and found out that he had already voted. The election officials confirmed that the person who voted first was not the person who was registered to vote. They allowed the registered person to vote, but explained there was no way to take back the vote of the illegal voter because it anonymously was recorded in the system. In 2016, there were videos showing voter machines changing votes from Republican to Democrat, and reports of dead people, illegals, and felons voting. Hillary Clinton went to court to delay Electoral College certification in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin to prevent those votes from counting so she could win the election.

This year, the Texas Democratic Party mailed voter registration applications to noncitizens that pre-printed "Yes" to the answers to questions "Are you a United States Citizen?" and "Will you be 18 years of age on or before election day?"Now we have yet another mess in Florida where the same person, Democrat Brenda Snipes, who manipulated votes in the 2012 elections is at it again. Whenever someone speaks of votes being stolen, the progressives laugh and roll their eyes about these charges, dismissing them as wild conspiracy theories. Psalm 101:7 says, "He that works deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that tells lies shall not tarry in my sight." Deceiving the electorate has become big business. It's time to say "Not in my house."

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Signs and Wonders

Interstellar Object: Alien Probe or Herald of Nibiru?

I looked, and lo, a stormy wind came sweeping out of the north - a huge cloud and flashing fire, surrounded by a radiance; and in the center of it, in the center of the fire, a gleam as of amber. In the center of it were also the figures of four creatures. And this was their appearance They had the figures of human beings. Ezekiel 1:4 (The Israel Bible)

A pair of Harvard scientists have come up with an astounding explanation for the strange behavior of the first interstellar object to pass through our solar system, suggesting it was a probe sent by an alien civilization to check us out. An Israeli Nibiru expert suggests a different cause, while giving an astounding explanation that links aliens to paranormal activity.

A relatively small object (by cosmic standards), approximately 700-feet-long and a mere 100-feet-wiide, Oumuamua was discovered in October 2017. At the time, it was 21 million miles from Earth and travelling at approximately 196,000 mph. It was moving so fast relative to the Sun that scientists concluded there was no chance it originated in our solar system.

Comets and asteroids from within our solar system move at a slower speed, typically an average of 12 miles per second as compared to Oumuamua's sizzling 54 miles per second. This made it the first object ever detected entering our solar system that originated from a entirely different one. It came from the direction of the Lyra System but Oumuamua's system of origin and the amount of time it has spent traveling among the stars are unknown.

Oumuamua is leaving the solar system and won't be coming back. It's heading in the direction of the constellation Pegasus and will cross the orbit of Neptune in about four years, covering one light year (5.8 trillion miles) over the next 11,000 years. The name chosen by scientists indicates the powerful significance they ascribed to this discovery. The name comes from Hawaiian word for 'scout'. Before the official name was decided upon, the name 'Rama' was suggested, the name given to an alien spacecraft discovered under similar circumstances in the 1973 science fiction novel Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke. (Breaking Israel News) Read more.
