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

Update: Two Tankers Attacked

Trump Blames Iran for Tanker Attacks, Calls for Talks

President Donald Trump has blamed Iran for attacks on oil tankers near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, but he also held out hope that implicit U.S. threats to use force will yield talks with the Islamic Republic as the Pentagon considers beefing up defenses in the Persian Gulf area.

In ticking off a list of Iranian acts of "unprovoked aggression," including Thursday's oil tanker attacks, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo added a surprise accusation. He asserted on Thursday that a late May car bombing of a U.S. convoy in Kabul, Afghanistan, was among a series of threats or attacks by Iran and its proxies against American and allies interests. At the time, the Taliban claimed credit for the attack, with no public word of Iranian involvement.

Pompeo's inclusion of the Afghanistan attack in his list of six Iranian incidents has raised eyebrows in Congress, where he and other U.S. officials have suggested that the administration would be legally justified in taking military action against Iran under the 2001 Authorization of Military Force, or AUMF. In that law, Congress gave then-President George W. Bush authority to retaliate against al-Qaida and the Taliban for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. It has subsequently been used to allow military force against extremists elsewhere, from the Philippines to Syria. (CBN) Read more

- Lord God, we bind the spirit of confusion over this incident, and we release the spirit of calm and of truth. We thank You, Lord, that no one was killed on either of these ships, and we ask for definitive evidence to come forth, showing who was responsible for these attacks. Amen.

- "Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." (Matthew 18:18)

Russia, China and Iran Align

Rouhani tells SCO summit: US poses 'serious threat'

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani says the Trump administration is a serious threat to the stability of the Middle East and the world, urging the international community to stand up to US unilateralism.

"For the past two years, the US government has used its economic, financial and military power through an aggressive approach to disrupt all international structures and regulations," Rouhani said Friday.

This has turned the US administration "into a serious threat for the stability of the region and the world", he noted.

He was speaking at a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation -- a Eurasian security alliance that includes China, India and Russia -- in Bishkek, the capital of the Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that today, the international community has been challenged more than ever by the issue of unilateralism, and the problems and complexities of today's world, especially terrorism, extremism and drug trafficking, have made multilateralism a necessity," Rouhani added.

Rouhani also warned that "terrorism, in its different forms, extremism, unilateralism and interference of extra-regional countries in the affairs of other regions and interference in the internal affairs of other countries have put the international community in a grave situation."

The situation, he noted, can pose a threat to the stability, security and interests of all countries around the world.

"Today, we all have to be united from the East to the West against the danger of extremism; because extremism threatens development, peace and security of the world," Rouhani said.

"It does not matter whether we are Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist or following any other religion; what matters is to be united against extremism of any color, race or religion." (PressTV) Read more.

Sarah Sanders Resigns

WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will leave office by the end of the month, Trump announces

President Trump announced Thursday on Twitter that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will be leaving her position at the end of the month.

"After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas," Trump said. "She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!" The president has not yet named a replacement for the position.

If she chooses to follow in her father's footsteps the seat for governor opens up in 2022. "I'm going to continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the president and his agenda and I know he's going to have an incredible six more years and get a lot more done," Sanders said. (CBN) Read more.

- Lord God, we thank You for the service rendered by Sarah Huckabee Sanders to our nation, as she has faithfully served President Trump in the role of Press Secretary. We pray for God's peace to surround her as she seeks Your will for the next step in her life; and for Your wisdom to guide President Trump as he chooses the next man or woman who will serve as his Press Secretary. In Your Name, amen.

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

The most amazing story never told

While the coup-makers in the Democratic Party are cheerleading the idea of impeaching a duly-elected president for obstructing investigations into his alleged collaboration with Russia to influence the 2016 elections, the media is largely ignoring the source of the Russian narrative-which is the previous president, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the FBI, and members of Congress-all of which were trying to sell a narrative that Donald Trump was in cahoots with the Russians to undermine the presidential elections. But there is new evidence that the former president, the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, and members of Congress conspired to fabricate the Russian narrative and undermine US voters.

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation have released 16 pages of documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act revealing that former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer coordinated with then-House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer's (D-MD) national security advisor, Daniel Silverberg to work on Russia dossier materials provided by Christopher Steele, the former British spy and author of the anti-Trump dossier used to justify a series of FISA spy warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and transition team. Winer is a former Obama State Department deputy assistant secretary who was implicated in working with Steele and Clinton associate Sidney Blumenthal to circulate the anti-Trump dossier.

It's an amazing story that is not being told by the news media. Yet, the coup-makers in the Democratic Party continue to press for investigations and calls for impeachment based on this Steele dossier that was paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The biased AP writes, "As Democrats in Congress press for continued investigation of Trump while he remains in office, the party's presidential candidates are weighing how to address his alleged misdeeds when he is no longer in the White House...nearly half of the more than 20 Democratic primary candidates are calling for the start of an impeachment inquiry." Absolutely no mention of the Democratic conspiracy to use false information to undermine the election, spy on a president-elect, and push for obstruction charges when he fights back.

As Judicial Watch has revealed with hard evidence, even Democrats in Congress were in on the conspiracy. Yet no coverage and no charges brought forth. Neither the media nor the people will stand against the lie. While not in the same context as the revealing of the "Wicked" one in the end of days, this charade is akin to a type and shadow of 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12, "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." Just so you can see how it can happen, and be aware of the deceptive spirit of evil.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

The House will continue consideration of H.R. 2740, the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2020.
The House will also begin consideration of H.R. 3055, which is the Commerce, Justice, Science, Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act.
This will be the second minibus that will be coming to the floor over this work period. It is my intention, Mr. Speaker, to pass all 12 appropriation bills in this work period.
This package is yet another step toward the House doing its work to avoid another shutdown, which has such a negative effect on the Nation and a negative effect on the morale of those who work for the American people in the Federal Government.
Hopefully, it will result in an agreement between the House and the Senate, and a signature of the President, which will preclude a repeat of the shutdown.

Communist camp for kids this summer

Communist camp for kids this summer
A note to our readers:

This is a very important article, published this week by Intercessors for America.

In order to do this justice, we will refrain from running any excerpts on this, but instead will refer you to the article itself. Please go here to read and to pray over this alarming news. Thank you.

- Father God, we are shocked and we are grieved to read what is in this article. Our enemies have now taken our First Amendment rights to a new level, so that "freedom of speech" can include communist doctrines of treason. We weep, too, for our innocent children -- who, without our help and Your divine intervention -- are now doomed to become slaves of this ideology.

As we continue to repent of our sins before You, we ask that Your Spirit would the parents of this school district in Portland to RISE UP and to say NO MORE. We ask, too, that the elders of the St. Peter and Paul Church in Portland will cancel this "summer camp" on their property. In Your Name, amen.

- "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord
shall lift up a standard against him." (Isaiah 59:19)

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: 150411#
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.
