California Earthquakes

The Latest: Southern California reels from 7.1 quake

Small communities in the Mojave Desert are reeling from a magnitude 7.1 earthquake - the second major temblor in as many days to rock Southern California. Authorities say Friday night's shaker was centered near the town of Ridgecrest - the same area where a 6.4-magnitude quake hit on Independence Day.

Mark Ghillarducci, director of the California Office of Emergency Services, says there are "significant reports of structure fires, mostly as a result of gas leaks or gas line breaks throughout the city." He also says there's a report of a building collapse in tiny Trona. He says there could be even more serious damage to the region that won't be known until first light on Saturday.

The quake at 8:19 p.m. was felt as far north as Sacramento and even in Las Vegas. It's been followed by a series of sizeable aftershocks. State Route 178 in Kern County was closed by a rockslide and roadway damage. Kern County Fire Chief David Witt says there have been a lot of ambulance calls but no reported fatalities.

- Father God, we thank You that Your Hand of mercy was resting upon the State of California during these past two days so that, in the midst of these shakings, no one was injured or killed. We ask for Your continued Hand of protection to rest upon this State in the days ahead, as more and perhaps stronger quakes are predicted to hit California. In Your Name, amen.
- "The words "once more" indicate the removing of what can be shaken--that is, created things--so that what cannot be shaken may remain." (Hebrews 12:27)

Charlie Shamp:

The California Earthquake on Independence Day was a prophetic sign of freedom coming to the State!

Prophetic Word Released on November 14, 2018

I . . . saw that California is entering into a time of increased earthquake activity over the next two years. I saw sizable shakings coming! Some will say this is judgement upon the state, but it is not! For the Lord would say unto you California, "There has been tremendous weight laid upon you over the years, but I will break the bands of wickedness off the land. Yes there will be a shaking, but the yoke is breaking, the burden is removing, Revival Harvest is coming. What the enemy will do, God will turn it to your good! For as the land shakes I will remove the yoke and a mighty revival will begin to flow. The state will rumble and shake and bondage will break! Watch for a shaking will come that moves the mountain and the ceilings of limitations will break under the power of my right hand. Did I not say, 'Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory.' Did I not say, 'The silver is mine, and the gold is mine!' Watch as I shake the land and new gold is found in mines as a sign.
-Charlie Shamp

Carolyn Hyde in Israel

(Part One)

On July 3 I had a dream:

I saw a cabinet door open and several ragged people from Asia who resembled pirates were allowed entry into the USA. When I asked why, I was told it was in preparation for July 4.

After posting this dream on an Israeli Prayer site from Fred and Sue Rowe, Rick Ridings responded with this video:

Certainly a moment to be alert in praying exposure of and protection from terrorist plans against the USA and Israel this summer. Here is what our friend Cindy Jacobs just sent out:

Cindy Jacobs (video)

Carolyn Hyde: Part Two

So I replied on the site: Rick, thank you for sharing Cindy Jacob's word last night. Afterwards a friend and I prayed into this, but while praying, I sensed the L-rd say that He would lessen the severity of the judgment but some judgment was already ordained.

After a brief and restless sleep, I awoke and although I really wanted to pray for America, just couldn't seem to pray at all - my mind wouldn't stay focused. So I tried to press in harder and then with each word I tried to pray, it was like holding drywall that crumbled in my hands. So I tried again and came up against a metal gate that was locked and couldn't be opened. So I really tried harder to focus and pray and this time I was very small, standing before a HUGE, gray, towering, concrete wall. I saw some things moving on the wall and saw a raccoon and worms.

So is America finished?, I asked and heard no. Then I saw a blanket that had been lying on the ground in the forest and it was full of briars and thorns. It was picked up by unseen hands and shaken in waves. Then the hands began picking off the briars and thorns one by one.

A shaking and a cleansing is coming to America; it's been ordained and won't stop. And I saw the raccoon start to pick off the worms.

In Charlie Shamp's word, we are both seeing the coming shaking of America. I agree that there's a relationship with coming revival in the USA through these shakings but it would be a mistake to leave G-d's heart for Israel out of the equation. Over 64 times in the Word the L-rd speaks about Aliyah, our return to Israel. But when we've done outreach on the streets of America and talked with my Jewish family members about Aliyah, they all say the same thing - "We don't want to make Aliyah because we're comfortable in America."

So what is G-d going to have to do to fulfill His promises in His Word?

Blessings from the Galilee in Yeshua's love,

On the 4th: Trump Addresses the Nation

Trump at his July 4th event: Americans 'part of one of the greatest stories ever told'
With jets roaring overhead and a poncho-clad crowd before him, President Donald Trump implored Americans to come together Thursday in a show of national pride -- a rare unifying message from a deeply divisive President that came after days of controversy and criticism over his precedent-shattering military spectacle on the National Mall.

"We must go forward as a nation with that same unity of purpose," Trump said, filmed through rain-streaked bulletproof glass as showers beat steadily on his audience. "As long as we stay true to our course, as long as we remember our great history, as long as we never, ever stop fighting for a better future, then there will be nothing that America cannot do."

After a flyover from the plane that normally serves as Air Force One, Trump delivered 20 minutes of remarks that were an homage to the nation's early history and its military. But he also spoke about more recent advancements in civil rights and gender equality. And he looked ahead, declaring the American flag would soon be planted on Mars.
"As we gather this evening in the joy of freedom, we remember that we all share a truly extraordinary heritage," Trump said in remarks that did not veer off-script. "Together, we are part of one of the greatest stories ever told - the story of America."

In a crowd-pleasing closer, Trump hailed each branch of the military as aircraft from their fleets -- -- including a B-2 stealth bomber and the Blue Angels -- sailed overhead, causing Washington's buildings to shake and rumble. Bands heralded the individual branches with their official march songs. M1 Abrams tanks transported by heavy rail sat on display. (CNN) Read more.

- Father, we thank You for this inspiring speech given by the President of the United States on this July 4th. We take note, too, that President Trump's speech was so positive and so healing for our nation, that not even the mainstream media could find anything to criticize. Thank You, Lord, amen and amen.
- "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." (I Timothy 2:1,2)

America's freedom and heritage

Blessings to America and her sons and daughters as we continue to celebrate our independence declared on July 4, 1776. But the nation we know and love as America, the ideal of the United States of America, really began in the early 1600's when settlers came from other countries, mainly England, on an adventure that spawned the beacon of freedom and the light of Jesus Christ for the world. The Mayflower Compact, which many believe today to be the first significant governing document of what would become the United States, was very specific about the covenant these men and women were entering into with God for this new land. Herein, we need to know the past in order to preserve our future.

The Mayflower Compact of 1620 reads: "IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honor of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia; Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid.
Some 18 years later, The Fundamental Orders of 1638, were adopted in Connecticut. Its preamble says, "For as much as it hath pleased Almighty God . . . knowing where a people are gathered together the word of God requires that to maintain the peace and union of such a people there should be an orderly and decent Government established according to God, to order and dispose of the affairs of the people at all seasons as occasion shall require; to maintain and preserve the liberty and purity of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus, which according to the truth of the said Gospel is now practiced amongst us; as also in our civil affairs to be guided and governed according to such Laws, Rules, Orders and Decrees.
These documents and many others like them dispel the lie that America was not founded on Christian precepts. We allow freedom to all religions, because our God in Christ Jesus will not force Himself upon others, but rather allow them to come voluntarily. But the foundation of our nation must remain Christian otherwise we will not so long be a nation of freedom and justice. God's sovereignty must be the rule of man. The Lord said in Jeremiah 34:15, "And you were now turned, and had done right in My sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbor; and you had made a covenant before me in the house which is called by my name." Remember your heritage in order to keep your future.

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: 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.
> > > Please note: Our prayer focus on tomorrow night's call will be in REPENTANCE for how we, as parents, have yielded up our authority, allowing teachers to replace us as the chief caregivers for our children. This is the fourth week that we have been on this topic. If you share our burden to repent for the problems in our schools today, please do join us. Thank you.
