Syria Update

Syria Update

Editor's Note: Last night, we shared Rick Ridings' prayer requests with you, including intercession for victory in Syria, and for President Trump to have wisdom regarding the deployment of our troops on the land.

This morning we awoke to find this good news report from Lauren Homer, a spokesperson for the church in Syria, on Capitol Hill. Please note Lauren's new prayer requests as you read her words, below.

Her email was also copied over to Chris Mitchell, CBN's Middle East correspondent in Israel.

Dear Sara and Chris,

The final assault on Baghouz began today. According to some reports, there are only 300 die hard ISIS fighters there who prefer martyrdom to surrender. Others say some families remain as well and some say there are still civilian hostages.

May the Lord protect the innocents and the SDF/US alliance soldiers as they fight a battle bound to involve hidden explosives and tricks to hurt them as much as possible.

One word that came to one of my friends was "alignment." To me, it suggests that our prayers should seek alignment of the plans of the nations with God's will for Syria and the Middle East.



> > > Here is the response from Chris:
Dear Lauren,

Thanks for the update on the final assault. May the Lord protect the SDF/U soldiers indeed!

Agreed about how our prayers should be in alignment for His purposes for Syria and the Middle East. Excited to see how this fast has spread.



- Father, we do thank You for how fast this answer to prayer is now being seen, and we give You all the glory as the prayers of the saints today are availing much.

We also pray in agreement, asking for Your Hand of protection to rest upon the SDF/U soldiers there, and that our intercession be in alignment with Your will for that region of the world. In Messiah's holy name we pray, amen.

- "The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16)

Update: the Cohen Hearing

Lynne Patton, Trump official at Cohen hearing, claimed he only 'turned'
when Mueller threatened wife

Michael Cohen testified this week that he turned against President Trump over issues ranging from his conduct during the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin to his controversial remarks about the Charlottesville violence in 2017.

But a key Trump administration official, who inadvertently played a central role in Wednesday's House hearing, has claimed there is another reason for Cohen's betrayal-that his wife was being threatened with jail time unless he "turned on" Trump.

The assertion was made in a Facebook entry by Department of Housing and Urban Development official Lynne Patton in January. The post has taken on new relevance given Cohen's testimony Wednesday.
"What many of you may not be aware of is the fact that I can personally confirm that the ONLY reason Michael Cohen 'turned on' the President of the United States is because Mueller threatened to throw his wife in jail for up to 30 years. Period," Patton posted on Jan. 18.

"She is the co-guarantor of a $20M personal loan that Mueller discovered Michael secured back in 2015 by falsely inflating the value of his taxi medallions-effectively making her part & parcel to the federal charge of 'Making False Statements to a Financial Institution,' to which Cohen ultimately plead guilty," she continued, adding that was also the reason a "longtime taxi medallion partner" was granted immunity.

Despite Patton's suggestion that Mueller had jurisdiction over the loan issues, it was the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of New York that investigated and brought charges against Cohen related to bank fraud and personal business dealings. Mueller only charged Cohen with one count of making false statements to Congress, to which he pleaded guilty.

Both SDNY and the special counsel's office declined to comment on Patton's claim.

Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, also did not respond to Fox News' request for comment on the claim. (Fox News) Read more here.

- Father, we thank You that Lynne Patton has now brought forth facts that shed more light on this critical matter. We ask that others would now come forth to corroborate her testimony, in Your name, amen.

- "Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses."
(2 Corinthians 13:1)

Update: India/Pakistan Crisis

India vs. Pakistan: Dangerous standoff between two nuclear-armed countries

The war level between India and Pakistan is high. PRAY for peace between the two nuclear countries. In the last two days tensions have reached a dangerous level.

It is hard to know what is happening. Each side is, of course, blaming the other. And each side has reason to blame the other one.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Khan is newly in office and talking about trying to get peace with India. Any time Pakistan talks about peace the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists create trouble in India to try and stop peace talks.

The Prime Minister of India Modi is up for elections and is not doing too well; people are getting fed up with him. The way a leader gets people behind him is to build up war with the other side. This has created wars between the two countries in the past.

Positive is when Prime Minister Khan of Pakistan came on national TV and addressed the people of Pakistan and Prime Minister Modi of India. He said they all need to come to their senses and pull back or the government would be taken from their hands and given to another (i.e. the military).

President Trump is trying to get peace with North Korea. But most of the news today was about the congressional testimony of lawyer Cohen. Pakistan and India were hardly heard of. It was like the devil was working, hidden underground, while the world was occupied in other things.

A few years ago a very insightful article was written on the "Zero Line" claiming that this was probably the most dangerous borderline in the world. This is the borderline in Kashmir between these two countries. The article went on to say that these two nuclear countries, in a flash, could go to war, drawing in much of the world. (International Prayer Connect/BBC) Read more here.

- This situation needs to be covered in PRAYER. Please pray for peace along what has been called the most dangerous border in the world. Pray, too, for: - the families who have lost loved ones this week

- healing for those who have been injured

- a spirit of restraint to fall upon the leaders of both nations, and

- for this crisis to be resolved quickly, without further harm to any citizen in Pakistan or in India

- "You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it." (John 14:14)

The Test for Impeachment

The Test for Impeachment

The Daily Jot

Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019

The Constitution states in Article II Section 4: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. Let us examine together the accusations leveled by President Donald Trump's former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen and determine with common sense if the building blocks of impeachment laid out in his testimony to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform meet the impeachment requirements. Granted "high Crimes and Misdemeanors" lends a fairly broad booth to land charges, but the context of Section 4 centers on "high" Crimes and Misdemeanors, not minor ones.

Cohen said: "I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is. He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat." These are opinions, not impeachable offenses. No doubt that many presidents, some of them beloved by their electorate, were racists, conmen and cheats. Cohen said Trump, "knew that Roger Stone was talking with Julian Assange about a WikiLeaks drop of Democratic National Committee emails." WikiLeaks did America a favor by showing the truth about the Democratic Party and its nefarious dealings, hypocrisy, and disdain for the people it says it represents. Knowing about it and being excited for its release is not an impeachable offense. Let us remember that the very same Democratic Party, its sitting president and its nominated candidate for president paid to fabricate a dossier to damage Trump. At least WikiLeaks was genuine and true.

Cohen said he was providing: "A copy of a check Mr. Trump wrote from his personal bank account - after he became president - to reimburse me for the hush money payments I made to cover up his affair with an adult film star and prevent damage to his campaign." That check could have been written for any of Cohen services. Federal prosecutors say this could be an impeachable offense because it might be considered an illegal contribution to benefit Trump's campaign. This is a stretch, but it could happen. Keep in mind, however, that it is not a crime to write personal checks to pay someone to keep silent who is not an employee of the government. Notwithstanding, this is the rack where the impeachment hat will be hung.

The other accusations in Cohen's testimony about a Trump hotel business deal (that didn't materialize) in Russia, Trump not wanting his grades and SAT scores revealed, his financial dealings, and his funneling money to have his portrait be the highest auction bid are very minor-especially compared with Hillary Clinton having a "pay for access" scheme to enrich the Clinton Foundation when she was Secretary of State. Bottom line: Trump is probably not the example of ethics and morals that best suit the office he holds, but these themes being used to remove him from office reveal that his accusers are far less examples of the same. As Christ said in Mark 7:6, "Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me." Hypocrisy abounds hiding the cocoon of truth.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Operation Restoration

Operation Restoration

Once each week, on Sunday mornings and for 24 hours, join with others in OPERATION RESTORATION . . .

"Operation Restoration"

This initiative is based upon the Move of the Spirit that was launched last month during Operation Refiner's Fire. The LORD has shown us that He has used those fires to ignite the FIRE of the HOLY SPIRIT to visit our people, which He now yearns to keep burning among our people until the day of His return!

"Operation Restoration" is based on the promise of Scripture, recorded in
2 Chronicles 7:14,15.

It is written:

. . . "and if My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

"Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place."

This is a weekly Solemn Assembly, where saints can feel free to gather each Sunday, to offer prayers of repentance before our Lord, for the many sins our nation has committed before Him.

Abba so desires to hear our prayers . . . He is just waiting to heal us!

You can join us, any Sunday, beginning at 9:00 a.m. EST by calling:
Access Code: 221654#
Each week, our conference line for Operation Restoration will remain open until Monday morning at 9:00 a.m.EST -- allowing for 24 hours of nonstop prayer before our King of Kings, that He might, indeed, "heal our land." Amen.

Our Weekly Prayer Focus

Our Weekly Prayer Focus:

The Week of March 2 - 8, 2019

In 1997 the U.S. Department of Commerce released a 17-year report of billion-dollar weather related disasters. The frequency of these disasters has increased dramatically, with five from 1981-1988, ten from 1989-1992, and 18 from 1993-1996. Severe weather has been a special concern in recent years, with hurricane Katrina flooding New Orleans in 2005, and tornadoes demolishing Greensburg, Kansas in 2007 and Joplin, Missouri in 2011. Some blame the increase in weather disasters on global warming due to greenhouse gas emission or on increasing immorality in society or on U.S. pressure on the State of Israel to give up land for peace with the Palestinians. Others blame the devil for wanting to divert time, money and lives away from the increasing efforts to reach all nations with the gospel.

Concerns about unusually severe weather continue with the arrival of the annual so-called "Tornado Season" in America. Tornadoes account for half of all weather disasters in the U.S. killing an average of about 100 people per year and causing an average of about $100 million in property damages each year. The worst months or tornadoes in America are April, May and June. Let's pray:

"Father God, we thank You for Your word in Luke chapter 10 verse 19 which says You give us Your authority over all the ability of the enemy, so that nothing shall by any means hurt us. We thank You Lord for showing us Jesus calming the storm in Matthew chapter eight and Mark chapter four, and we command the weather and the earth to be a blessing to the body of Christ, and to spare the people of the earth alive so we can reach them with the gospel. We take authority over the elements of the weather that would set up the formation of tornadoes, and we command them to 'Peace be still!' in Jesus' name. Amen!"
