"Standing United Together . . . Under the Cross of Christ"

Focus on Israel

1. No Israeli will be 'uprooted' from Judea and Samaria, vows Netanyahu - World Israel News

As the campaign for Israel's April 9 election kicks into high gear, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a stop in Elazar to address a gathering of Israelis who were forced to abandon their homes last year in the nearby community of Netiv Ha'avot. "As far as I am concerned, no more settlements will be uprooted," he told the assembled, "but rather the exact opposite. The Land of Israel is ours and it will stay ours. What fell, will be rebuilt." Netanyahu's comments were made in reference to the forced evacuations that have occurred during his term in office, which include the 15 homes that were demolished in Netiv Ha'avot, on the outskirts of Elazar, in addition to other similar incidents in Ofra and Amona.

2. Netanyahu to meet with Russian officials on Syria, 'regional issues' - Jerusalem Post Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin's special envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentiev and Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Vershinin Tuesday, the Russian embassy announced in a Twitter post. The two officials arrived in Israel earlier on Monday and have already met with Director General of the Israeli Foreign Affairs Ministry, Yuval Rotem, and are scheduled to meet with Israeli security officials as well. Rotem revealed on Twitter that his meeting with the Russian envoy focused on otherwise unspecified "regional issues." He called the discussion "meaningful and insightful."

3. Netanyahu tosses observer force out of Hebron after 22 years - Jerusalem Post Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to oust international observers from Hebron on Tuesday, thereby breaking a 22-year agreement that has helped hold in place the 1997 division of the city between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The observer force, known as the Temporary International Presence in Hebron (TIPH), operates under a mandate that is renewed twice a year by both sides. The mandate was due for renewal at the end of this month, but Netanyahu has been under pressure from right-wing politicians and Hebron's Jewish community not to renew it. Netanyahu said in November that he would review the situation, and decided on Monday that Israel will no longer support the presence of the 64 international civilian observers from Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey. "We will not allow an international force to act against us," Netanyahu said in a statement to the press.

4. Reports: Abbas to reshuffle government, appoint new PM - Israel Hayom

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has decided to shake up his government, Palestinian officials say.

Sources told Israel Hayom that incumbent Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah is unlikely to head the new government. Abbas is expected to meet with Hamdallah on Monday to inform him of his decision.

The move is the latest sign of failure in more than a decade of attempts to reconcile with the rival Hamas movement. The officials say Abbas appointed a four-member committee from his Fatah movement on Sunday to consult with political factions about forming a new government.

The official Wafa news agency said Fatah had decided to form a political government to replace the current cabinet of technocrats.

5. U.N. signs agreement with Qatar for one-time $20 million grant for Gaza - Jerusalem Post

The United Nations and Qatar signed a memorandum of understanding Sunday night for a one-time grant of $20 million for humanitarian projects in Gaza, which the world body has in the past described as mired in a state of "constant humanitarian crisis."

The money is in addition to the close to $10 million distributed in Gaza over the weekend to 94,000 poor families. Each family received $100 in cash.

This is an "important step for boosting the Palestinian economy," tweeted Jamie McGoldrick, the UN humanitarian coordinator for the Palestinian territories. He included a photograph of himself and Qatari envoy Mohammad Emadi, who heads Qatar's Gaza Reconstruction Committee, signing the memorandum at UN headquarters in Jerusalem.

The Daily Brief

1. Pelosi invites Trump to give State of the Union address on February 5 - Fox News

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Monday invited President Trump to deliver the State of the Union address on February 5.

The invitation from Pelosi comes after a planned January 29 date to give the address was scuttled due to the partial government shutdown. That led to a contentious back-and-forth between Trump and the House speaker before the president announced a deal to reopen the government on January 25.

"When I wrote to you on January 23rd, I stated that we should work together to find a mutually agreeable date when government has reopened to schedule this year's State of the Union address," Pelosi wrote in her new invitation to Trump. "In our conversation today, we agreed on February 5th.

"Therefore, I invite you to deliver your State of the Union address before a Joint Session of Congress on February 5, 2019 in the House Chamber." (Read more)

- Father God, we thank You that this impasse is now over, and that President Donald John Trump will be able to deliver his first State of the Union address in front of a Democratic Congress in the House Chamber, as he desired. We ask that this speech would be used to inspire the American people to stand with him, and to give him all the support he will need in order to carry out his mission for America, on both the foreign and the domestic fronts. Amen.

- "Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven." (Matthew 18:19)

2. British newspaper issues apology to Melania Trump, will pay 'substantial damages' over article - Washington Examiner

The Telegraph apologized to first lady Melania Trump on Saturday for publishing an article that included "a number of false statements." The British newspaper has also agreed to pay first lady Melania Trump "substantial damages" and legal costs over its Jan. 19 magazine cover story, "The mystery of Melania." "[W]e have been asked to make clear that the article contained a number of false statements which we accept should not have been published," the newspaper said. "Mrs. Trump's father was not a fearsome presence and did not control the family. Mrs. Trump did not leave her Design and Architecture course at University relating to the completion of an exam, as alleged in the article, but rather because she wanted to pursue a successful career as a professional model. Mrs. Trump was not struggling in her modelling career before she met Mr. Trump, and she did not advance in her career due to the assistance of Mr. Trump." The Telegraph went on to say it accepted that Trump "was a successful professional model in her own right before she met her husband and obtained her own modelling work without his assistance." It also stated that the article incorrectly claimed the Trumps met in 1996, rather than 1998, and that Trump's mother, father and sister moved to New York in 2005 to live in Donald Trump's buildings, which they did not.

3. NATO head: Trump's tough talk has added $100B to alliance, helped deter Russia - Fox News

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, speaking on "Fox News Sunday," said President Trump's tough talk has ultimately strengthened the 70-year-old alliance by leading member nations to contribute tens of billions of additional dollars to ensure their own security.

Stoltenberg's comments were a direct repudiation of critics who have accused Trump of undermining NATO by repeatedly pushing allies to meet their defense spending obligations -- and Trump himself referred to Stoltenberg's interview minutes later on Twitter as a rejection of a narrative pushed by "Dems & fake news." "President Trump has been very clear," Stoltenberg told fill-in host John Roberts. "He is committed to NATO. He stated that clearly just a few days ago and also at the NATO summit in July. But at the same time, he has clearly stated that NATO allies need to invest more. And therefore at the summit in July last year, we agreed to do more to step up -- and now we see the results."

4. High court will hear post-Heller gun-rights case - One News Now

The case involves a challenge to New York's A gun-rights organization says it is pleased the U.S. Supreme Court is set to review a firearm-related case that is challenging New York City. prohibition on carrying a handgun --- licensed, locked and unloaded --- outside the city limits. The ordinance allows people licensed to have handguns to carry them outside the home to gun ranges in the city, but the guns must be locked and unloaded. City residents who filed suit demand the right to practice shooting at target ranges outside the city or to take their guns to a second home elsewhere in the state. Mike Hammond, legislative counsel to Gun Owners of America, predicts the high court currently has five "pro-gun" justices when the case goes before them this fall. "Hopefully, for the first time in a long time," he tells OneNewsNow, "the Hellercase recognizing that the Second Amendment is an individual right will actually be put into practice rather than simply being a theoretical issue."

5. Roger Stone opens door to cooperating with Mueller after dramatic predawn arrest - Fox News

Former Trump adviser Roger Stone appeared to open the door to cooperating in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe on Sunday, even as he called the obstruction charges against him "fabricated" and defiantly condemned his dramatic, guns-drawn predawn arrest. Speaking to ABC News' "This Week," Stone told anchor George Stephanopoulos he hasn't ruled out the possibility of striking a deal with prosecutors. Ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is currently fighting Mueller's accusations that he violated the terms of his plea agreement in an unrelated case. "Uh, you know, That's a question I'll have to determine after my attorneys have some discussion," Stone said, when asked about a potential cooperation deal. "If there's wrongdoing by other people in the campaign that I know about, which I know of none, but if there is, I would certainly testify honestly. I'd also testify honestly about any other matter, including any communications with the president." Stone continued: "It's true that we spoke on the phone. But those communications are political in nature. They're benign. And there's certainly no conspiracy with Russia. The president's right: There is no Russian collusion." (Read more)

- Lord, just the other day he promised not to bear false witness against the President. We pray that you will not allow the Mueller team to use underhanded tactics to force Mr. Stone to speak a lie to save himself.

- "Whether it be pleasing or displeasing, we will obey the voice of the Lord our God." (Jeremiah 42:6a)

6. Rep. Ilhan Omar facing new scrutiny over past effort to win leniency for 9 men accused of trying to join ISIS - Fox News

Embattled congressional freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., once asked a judge to show leniency toward a group of Minnesota men accused of trying to join the Islamic State terror group. "The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion," she wrote at the time. "We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to effect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation." The nine Minnesota men were facing decades in prison after being accused in 2015 of making plans, including buying fake passports, in an effort to travel to Syria and fight for ISIS, which was at its peak level of activity and held territory in Syria and Iraq. Omar, who was then a Minnesota state representative, was part of a group that sent letters to Judge Michael Davis urging him to give shorter sentences, arguing that harsher penalties would only lead to more people joining the terror group.

7. Extramarital affair with Kamala Harris? Former San Francisco mayor, 84, admits it happened - Fox News

Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown addressed his past extramarital relationship with U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris in his weekly column Saturday, saying he may have boosted the presidential hopeful's career. "Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago," Brown wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle. "Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was [California] Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco." Brown, 84, pointed out that he also helped the careers of other prominent California Democrats, such as U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein. "The difference is that Harris is the only one who, after I helped her, sent word that I would be indicted if I 'so much as jaywalked' while she was D.A.," Brown wrote. "That's politics for ya." Brown appointed Harris -- about 30 years younger than Brown and just a few years out of law school - to two well-paid state commission assignments on the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and the California Medical Assistance Commission, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

- Lord, the sin of adultery is referred to as "dating." We are grieved, Lord and we fall to our knees in repentance to ask for mercy.

- "In wrath, remember mercy." (Habbakuk 3:2d)

8. A married gay man is running for president. That's a big deal - CNN

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg entered the 2020 race for president on Wednesday, announcing his intentions with a video featuring scenes of him and his husband, Chasten, cooking and playing with their dog, Buddy. Should Buttigieg win his long-shot bid for the Democratic nomination, he will become the first nominee of a major political party who publicly identifies as gay. If he goes on to defeat President Donald Trump, it'd be a historic win. This appears unlikely (but by no means impossible) at this point; Buttigieg is not very well-known outside of Indiana and he's entering a crowded field of more established contenders. That a gay married man is running a serious campaign for president, however, is a big deal, and we shouldn't let the improbability of his candidacy stop us from acknowledging this moment. Only a decade ago, his run would have been unthinkable. Gay marriage was legal in only two states in January 2009 -- Massachusetts and Connecticut. Voters in California -- one of the most Democratic states in the country -- had just passed Proposition 8, banning same-sex marriage in the state. Barack Obama became President, and although he was supportive of expanding legal rights for the LGBT community and gay couples, he was on the record during his campaign as being opposed to same-sex marriage.

- Lord, we have sinned in our land so grievously that we have literally legalized actions against Your word into our government. From our knees in repentance, we ask for an awakening of truth, a revival across America.

- "So now we call the proud blessed, for those who do wickedness are raised up; yes those who tempt God go free." (Malachi 3:15)

9. NY lawmakers pass Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act - ABC News

The New York Senate and Assembly both passed the Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act on Wednesday. The legislation allows undocumented children who are already students in the state to qualify for state aid for higher education. It also creates a fund for college scholarship opportunities and removes barriers that prevent undocumented families from college saving programs. Senate Republicans criticized the passage saying "it will reward law-breaking illegal immigrants with free college tuition." The so-called Dream Act will ensure that New York children will have the same access to state loans and grants no matter their legal status as American citizens. To be eligible, a person must have a New York high school diploma or the equivalent or meet the requirements for in-state tuition. California, Texas and four other states already have similar laws on the books. In New York, the measure is expected to cost $27 million annually. A new state commission and state fund would be created to identify private sources of funding for scholarships. The Senate passed the bill Wednesday afternoon, hours before the Assembly followed suit. Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo supports the measure and is expected to sign it into law. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that You will protect Your people in all states that choose to follow lawlessness. May You provide relief for the taxpayers and citizens of New York as they fall under heavy taxation and loss of college funds for their families.

- "A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight." (Proverbs 11:1)

10. Murder on a Genocidal Scale': Why the US Church Needs to Wake Up to Scourge of Global Christian Persecution- CBN

The problem here in America where people don't see that much Christian persecution is that most don't realize how bad it is in many places around the world - nor do they know what to do about it. That's why Bishop Keith Butler, the chairman of Save the Persecuted Christians (STPC), says the first crucial goal is just waking people up. "Public awareness is very important," Bishop Keith Butler told CBN News at a news conference in the National Press Club. "Remember when Bill Clinton was president of the United States, awareness was so big about Muslims being murdered in Bosnia and all that? The United Nations got involved!" (Read more)

- Lord, we thank You that You are "God With Us" for Your people all over the world. Grant them freedom from this persecution, and grant American Christians the light and truth to not just see their plight but pray in power for our brothers and sisters worldwide. Prick our hearts, Lord and give us Your heart for the Body of Christ.

11. Polar vortex plunge to bring 'brutally cold' air to Midwest with 'life threatening wind chills' - Fox News

A surge of arctic air is about to bring parts of the Midwest the coldest temperaturesin years by the middle of this week, as part of the polar vortex is set to blast the region with dangerously cold temperatures. The National Weather Service said in its forecast discussion that a "potentially record breaking push" of Arctic air will inundate the Northern Plains and Great Lakes by Wednesday, bringing wind chills as low as -40 degrees in many locations.

"There's no mild way of saying it. Brutal cold is coming," the NWS' Chicago office saidon Twitter. "While forecast specifics will be further refined, the frigid cold with wind will provide very low wind chills. It's forecast as the prolonged coldest in at least 5 years, but potentially much longer."

Cities such as Fargo, Minneapolis, Green Bay, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Detroit will all see the brunt of the brutally cold temperatures by Wednesday and Thursday. (Read more)

Prophetic significance of Turkey meeting with Russia

With the announcement that the US is going to pull out of Syria, the other players are scrambling to fill the void and seize the power shift. One of the players, Turkey, represents the area mentioned as the leader of a coalition against Israel in the Ezekiel 38 end time prophecy. That prophecy states that Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, will lead "Persia (iran), Ethiopia (Sudan) and Libya with them (verse 5)" against the mountains of Israel in a colossal end time battle. Magog, Meshech and Tubal are all ancient locations in Turkey. The meeting of Russia's President Vladimir Putin and Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan aimed to broker alignment between Turkey, Syria, Iran and Russia.

Russia supports Iran. Syria is a vassal state of Iran. A 1998 agreement between Russia and Turkey, according to Bloomberg, "states that Syria won't permit any activity on its territory that would jeopardize Turkey's security." Russia wants the government in Damascus to assert control over the Kurdish-held territory once US forces leave, which constitutes a "safe zone." When the US withdraws, Turkey wants to attack the Kurds in Syria, which Erdogan believes pose a threat to Turkey's national security. Putin is leveraging the 1998 agreement to say that Syria will take care of the Kurds in Syrian territory, hoping that Turkey will restore ties with Syria. Russia and Iran have helped keep Syria's Bashar Assad in power.

The current focus of Turkey and Russia in Syria likely advances the prophecy clock. Turkey, obviously, is a primary player in establishing the stage of the end times. Russia is representing the interests of Turkey's competitor Iran. Iran eventually submits to Turkey, if only long enough to invade Israel in the end of days. Syria is also a prophetic player as indicated by Isaiah 17:1 stating, "Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." All these end time players are working together against Israel, while reluctantly sharing, giving, and taking power. But it is Turkey, where the ancient regions of Magog lay, and Pergamos, where Jesus says Satan's seat is, that bears watching for the end of days.

In Daniel 8:19, Gabriel says, "Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. The ram which you saw having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia." Strong's Concordance interprets the word "Grecia" in Hebrew as "Yavan, a son of Japheth (the third son of Noah)," his descendants and their land. The Genesis 10 table of nations indicates this area was not only Greece (as Bible interpretations imply), but also the Eastern Mediterranean, including key parts of today's Turkey. Other sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras-many settled in ancient areas of Turkey, which are mentioned in Ezekiel 38. This is why we need to keep an eye on Turkey when considering end time prophecy.

Have a blessed and powerful day,

But Ruth said, "Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God." (Ruth 1:16)


Down in the valley with my Savior I would go,
Where the flowers are blooming and the sweet waters flow;
Everywhere He leads me I would follow, follow on,
Walking in His footsteps till the crown be won.


Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Anywhere, everywhere, I would follow on!
Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Everywhere He leads me I would follow on!

Down in the valley with my Savior I would go,
Where the storms are sweeping and the dark waters flow;
With His hand to lead me I will never, never fear,
Dangers cannot fright me if my Lord is near.


Down in the valley, or upon the mountain steep,
Close beside my Savior would my heart ever keep;
He will lead me safely in the path that He has trod,
Up to where they gather in the rest of God.

Signs and Wonders

75% of the US population will suffer below-freezing temps this week

Schools in Minnesota are closing, Illinois' governor is warning residents about hypothermia, and hundreds of flights have been canceled at Denver Airport.

Even parts of the United States accustomed to cold weather are preparing for the worst.

About 220 million people -- or 75% of the continental US population -- will endure below-freezing temperatures this week.

The biting cold already has caused at least one death in Minnesota and another in Illinois. In many parts of the country, the coldest weather is yet to come.

If you're 25 years old or younger, "you've never felt this cold before," CNN meteorologist Tom Sater said.

The winter storm has also led to the cancellation of 3,480 US flights on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Flightaware.com.

Across the Midwest and Great Lakes, the brutal cold will likely shatter dozens of records, CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen said.

Between Tuesday and Thursday, temperatures will plunge to 20-40 degrees below zero in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes, Hennen said. Wind chills will plummet to 35-60 below zero.

But the deep freeze is only half the story. The Dakotas are grappling with blizzard conditions, the National Weather Service said. And heavier snow is expected in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes, meaning "dangerous to impossible travel conditions."

While intense snow smothers much of the Midwest, snow will likely extend all the way down to Mississippi and Alabama. (CNN) Read more.

Bookstore That Stood Against Disturbing NY Abortion Law
Gets Unbelievable Response from Public

When a Syracuse, New York, bookstore closed in reaction to a New York state law that legalized abortion up until the moment of birth, the owner knew it would make some waves. What he didn't know is how huge - and how positive - the reaction would be.

According to a Facebook post by Jon Speed, the owner of Jon Speed: The Book Scout, the store is so overwhelmed with emails and orders they're still trying to sort through them.

Speed's store went viral after it closed in reaction to the Reproductive Health Act. Ostensibly pushed as an attempt to codify Roe v. Wade into state law in case the Supreme Court overturns the case, the law also legalizes abortion up until birth in certain circumstances and allows non-doctors to perform abortions.

If just to antagonize opponents of the bill, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had certain landmarks - including One World Trade Center, the tallest building in America - lit up pink as a sign of victory.

However, another reaction to the bill's passage didn't go unnoticed. In Syracuse, Jon Speed posted a laminated sign on his door and closed up shop on Wednesday. (The Conservative Tribune) Read more.
