Focus on Israel

1. Trump tells Saudi Crown Prince US ready to help protect Kingdom's security - Al Arabiya

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman received a phone call from US President Donald Trump following the drone attacks on oil production facilities in the Kingdom.

During the phone call on Saturday, Trump also affirmed Washington's readiness to cooperate with the Kingdom to supports its security and stability, according to a statement on the Saudi Press Agency.

The US President stressed the negative impact of the terrorist attacks that targeted two Aramco facilities on the American and global economy.

"For his part, the Crown Prince stressed that the Kingdom has the will and ability to confront and deal with this terrorist aggression," the statement on SPA added.

2. Pompeo accuses Iran of 'unprecedented attack' after drones hit Saudi oil facilities - Fox News

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on the international community to join him Saturday in condemning Iran for drone attacks on two Saudi oil facilities, which he described as "an unprecedented attack on the world's energy supply."

"Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia while [President Hassan] Rouhani and [Foreign Minister Mohammad] Zarif pretend to engage in diplomacy," Pompeo tweeted, referring to the nation's president and foreign affairs minister. " ... There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen."

Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack hours before Pompeo's tweet. The world's largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oil field were impacted, sparking huge fires at a vulnerable chokepoint for global energy supplies.

3. Trump says he and Netanyahu discussed possible US-Israeli defense treaty - Fox News

President Trump said he spoke Saturday to Israel leader Benjamin Netanyahu about the possibility of a "mutual defense treaty" between the two nations-just days before Israeli voters go to the polls to decide the fate of their embattled leader.

Trump said in a tweet that such a defense pact -- a Netanyahu priority -- would "further anchor the tremendous alliance between our two countries."

"I look forward to continuing those discussions after the Israeli Elections when we meet at the United Nations later this month!" Trump said.

The comments just three days before the election on Netanyahu's political future were the latest effort by Trump to back Netanyahu, perhaps his closest personal ally on the world stage.

4. Final polls have Netanyahu edging toward majority right-wing bloc - Times of Israel

The final polls released ahead of next week's election indicated that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was inching his way closer to being able to form a right-wing coalition, but still falling just short of the mark.

In the Channel 12 and 13 surveys released Friday, which under Israeli law was the last day polls were allowed to be published before the September 17 vote, Netanyahu's Likud party and its centrist rival Blue and White were in a dead heat. However, Netanyahu's potential right-wing coalition moved up to 59 and 58 seats in the respective surveys. Sixty-one seats are needed for a majority in the 120-seat Knesset.

Most polls in recent months had Netanyahu's right-wing and religious partners at 55 or 56 seats, with the rise in Friday's polls indicating that momentum was with them in the final days before the election.

5. Bennett reveals Trump's 'Deal of the Century' map - 'it's hell' - World Israel News

Yemina party member Naftali Bennett tweeted a map on Sunday that he says represents the Trump administration's coming Arab-Israeli peace plan, or "deal of the century." He says it's "hell."

The map shows a large black area over most of Judea and Samaria, with small white dots symbolizing Jewish communities connected by thin white lines that symbolize roads.

"This is the 'deal of the century' that will be drop on us immediately after the elections," Bennett wrote.

"In black - Palestine."

"In white - lone Israeli 'islands' within an ocean of Palestine. Surrounded 360 degrees by Hamas, Tanzim, PLO."

"Hell for every resident of Ariel, Ofra and Kiryat Arba. The end of settlement."

The Daily Brief

1. BREAKING! Trump: US 'locked and loaded' against attackers of Saudi oil facility 'depending on verification' - Fox News

President Trump on Sunday suggested U.S. investigators had "reason to believe" they knew who launched crippling attacks against a key Saudi oil facility, and vowed that America was "locked and loaded depending on verification."

While he did not specify who he believed was responsible for Saturday's drone attacks, U.S. investigators previously have pointed the finger at Iran.

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" the president tweeted.

Earlier Sunday, Trump authorized the use of emergency oil reserves in Texas and other states after Saudi oil processing facilities were attacked, sparking fears of a spike in oil prices when markets reopen Monday.

The president wrote that he had authorized the release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, "in a to-be-determined amount sufficient to keep the markets well-supplied." (Read more)

- [Because we do not know all the details of this breaking story, and because the consequences of these actions might be so severe, we simply ask our partners to PRAY IN THE SPIRIT over this report. Thank you.]

- "We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans." (Romans 8:26)

2. Consumer Sentiment Rebounds More Than Expected, Dousing Recession Fears - Breitbart

After plunging in August, U.S. consumer rebounded by more than expected in the first weeks in September, according to data released Friday by the University of Michigan. Consumers felt better about both current conditions and their expectations for the future, according to the preliminary September survey.

"While a recession is not anticipated in the year ahead, neither is a resurgence in personal consumption," the survey's chief economist, Richard Curtin, said. "The outlook for consumption is for a slower but positive growth, keeping the expansion going for another year." Concerns about tariffs rose in September as the Trump administration began raising tariffs on China. Thirty-eight percent of consumers surveyed spontaneously mentioned tariffs worries, according to Curtin. That's the highest level of concern since tariffs were first announced in March of 2018.

- Father God, we pray Your mighty presence remain upon President Trump in all decisions that he makes, because he sees the full scope of situations that imperil or bless the United States as a whole. Bless him mightily, as he curtails the effects that China has on our nation. We trust and pray in the mighty Name of Jesus.

- "And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:7)

3. Germany ambassador Richard Grenell pushed as compromise choice to replace Bolton - Washington Examiner

A potential consensus candidate as White House national security adviser is emerging - U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard "Ric" Grenell, who is expected to dine with Trump on Saturday.

One former White House official said Grenell, 52, a Trump family favorite, has enacted key Trump policies, from resisting a Russian pipeline to Germany to demanding NATO members pay more for their own defense, and may be a "middle ground" pick to replace John Bolton.

As a former U.S. spokesman at the United Nations, working for Bolton, Grenell "passes the resume test," the former official said, and likely "is the best reflection of President Trump's worldview." If selected for the post, Grenell would be the most prominent openly gay official in the Trump administration. (Read more)

- Righteous Father, we trust You to put those in governmental leadership positions who will represent Christ-like standards that secures God's favor on our country. May these hear a clarion call to righteousness and repentance from a lifestyle of godless mixture, which is not representative of personal stability needed in positions of leadership of our country. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men." (Colossians 3:23)

4. EPA Repeals 'Power Grab' Water Rule It Says Stifled Innovation, Economic Development - Daily Signal

Help is on the way for homeowners and landowners, businesses, developers, and farmers who have been victimized by "regulatory uncertainty" and federal "overreach," Trump administration officials told business leaders Thursday.

EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and R.D. James, assistant secretary of the Army for civil works, joined members of Congress and leaders of trade associations to announce the completed repeal of the Obama administration's Clean Water Rule of 2015.

Today's final rule puts an end to an egregious power grab, eliminates an ongoing patchwork of Clean Water Act regulations, and restores a long-standing and familiar regulatory framework while we consider public comments on our proposed revised definition of waters of the United States. (Read more)

- Righteous Father, we trust that there be a clean swipe across the table repealing everything linked to the former administration. Give President Trump overcoming power to set in place his familiar regulatory framework of waters in the United States. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "When God gave to the sea His decree that the waters should not pass His commandment: when He appointed the foundations of the earth." (Proverbs 8:29)

5. DOJ inspector general completes investigation into alleged FISA abuse
- Washington Examiner

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has officially completed his investigation into alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses by the Justice Department and the FBI.

Horowitz said in a letter to congressional leaders that his team is in the "process of finalizing our report by providing a draft of our factual findings to the Department and FBI for classification determination and marking." Once redactions are made and the report is returned to the inspector general, Horowitz's team will "proceed with our usual process for preparing final draft public and classified reports, and ensuring that appropriate reviews occur for accuracy and comment purposes."

Meanwhile, Barr's "investigation into the investigators" is underway, and the attorney general has said he is working very closely with Horowitz. The inspector general can recommend prosecutions, and U.S. Attorney John Durham, whom Barr tasked to lead the review of the origins of the Russia investigation, has the ability to convene a grand jury and subpoena people outside the government. (Read more)
- Righteous Father, we wholly trust You to lead the review of the origins of the Russia investigation, as they convene a grand jury and subpoena people outside the government. Expose the evil abuses by cleaning up the underbelly of the shadow government. We trust and pray in Jesus' Name.

- "Have you not known? Have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding." (Isaac 40:28)

6. Republican Lawmakers Introduce Bill to End Nationwide Legal Injunctions - FreeBeacon

Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and Rep. Mark Meadows (R., N.C.) introduced legislation Wednesday to end nationwide injunctions after a California judge took action to stop a change in the Trump administration's asylum policy from going into effect.

The legislation, titled the "Nationwide Injunction Abuse Prevention Act," would prevent individual district court judges from issuing nationwide halts to new policies. Cotton and Meadows blasted "activist" and "unaccountable" district judges in a press release about their bill.

"This legislation would restore the appropriate role of district court judges by prohibiting them from issuing nationwide injunctions broader than the parties to the case or the geographic boundaries of the federal district in which the judge presides," they wrote. (Read more)
- Righteous Father, we pray Your power push through this Act and put it into law over the courts in America. Thank You, Lord. In the Name of Jesus we pray.

- "God shall fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and you shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall glory in the Holy One of Israel." (Isaiah 41:16)

7. Michelle Malkin to Trump: 'Shut Down' Federal Reserve Remittance Program for Illegal Aliens - Breitbart

Columnist Michelle Malkin is calling on President Trump to "shut down" a Federal Reserve program that profits off remittances sent to foreign countries by illegal aliens. Malkin detailed how the Federal Reserve actually aids illegal aliens living in the United States through a federal remittance program.

The "Directo a Mexico" program Malkin references was started by former President George W. Bush's administration in 2005, funneling remittances through the Federal Reserve directly to Mexico's central bank, according to Judicial Watch, which has been suing the federal government for more information on the scheme. Malkin said when she first reported on Directo a Mexico, she discovered how American taxpayer money has funded the Federal Reserve's marketing of the program to illegal aliens living in the U.S.

"It's very important that American taxpayers know that it's largely their money that's funding their own destruction," Malkin said. Every year, about $150 billion in remittances are sent to foreign countries by illegal aliens and legal immigrants living in the U.S. This money is untaxed. (Read more)
- Righteous Father: We pray that this Federal Reserve Remittance Program for Illegal Aliens be shut down now, to bring an end to American taxpayers' money being used to fund this evil, destructive program. God, stop this $150 billion ripoff of innocent tax paying Americans. We pray the Blood of Jesus be upon every facet of this illegal, sneaky program and destroy every line that supports it. We pray in the mighty Name of Jesus, amen.

- "Hear my cry, O God; for You have been a shelter for us, and a strong tower from the enemy." (Psalm 61:1, 3)

8. Over 100 Arrested in Ohio Human Trafficking, Child Sex Sting - Breitbart

More than one hundred suspects were arrested during a human trafficking and child sex sting in central Ohio this week. Reports said the sting, called "Operation 4th and Goal," was announced by Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost on Friday and took nearly 30 law enforcement agencies and social service organizations to execute.

Leading up to the arrests, undercover agents with the Internet Crimes Against Children task force (ICAC) worked in online chatrooms, apps, and various websites, posing as underage girls to bait those suspects who were allegedly seeking sex with minors. "Without the buyers of sex, traffickers will not have an effective avenue to make money," the statement read. "Conducting proactive undercover sting operations is an effective tactic used to bring public awareness to human trafficking and education to the buyers of paid sexual services of the reality of human trafficking." (Read more)
- Righteous Father, we pray that the literal hand of God will push back this insidious, life-destroying sin that has thrived long enough. God, cut off the head of this evil serpent and continue to extinguish each of these human trafficking organizations. We pray and trust in the Name of Jesus.

- "It is God that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; Yea, they shall not be planted: yea, they shall not be sown: yea their stock shall not take root in the death: and God shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble." (Isaiah 40:22,24)

9. Robert Epstein: How Big Tech Bias Threatens Free and Fair Elections - Epoch Times

Tech giants have "a whole class of techniques" exclusively at their disposal "for shifting people's opinions, thinking, attitudes, beliefs, purchases, and votes without people knowing, and without leaving a paper trail," Robert Epstein said in an interview with The Epoch Times for the "American Thought Leaders" program.

"Americans see Google search results about 500 million times a day. Google controls roughly 90 percent of search. The next largest search engine, Bing, controls about 2 percent of search," Epstein said. "And I think we have to think beyond the United States because a company like Google is impacting more than 2 billion people around the world. Within three years, that number will swell to over 4 billion people," he said.

"They can literally impact thinking behavior, attitudes, beliefs, elections in almost every country in the world. In my mind, that means building larger, better-monitoring systems to keep an eye on companies like Google. I think that's necessary, not only to protect democracy around the world but to protect human autonomy." (Read more)
- Almighty God, we trust You to take control of Google. YOU are much greater than anything man can create. We trust You to make a way for this system to either reform its policies, or to be obliterated altogether. We entrust this matter into Your hand, amen.

- "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour." (I Peter 5:8)

10. Debate descends into melee over health care, Obama, socialism as Dems struggle to show unity - Fox News

Long-simmering policy disputes between Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and a slew of other candidates exploded into the open during Thursday night's Democratic primary debate, as the candidates laid bare their fundamental disagreements on "Medicare-for-all," immigration and more.

Intermittent efforts by some candidates to show unity and keep the heat on President Trump repeatedly failed, with most striving instead to score an aggressive debate "moment" onstage in Houston. The most heated clashes of the night came between Biden and fellow Obama administration member Castro, who tangled at length in direct and seemingly personal terms.

"I'm fulfilling the legacy of Barack Obama, and you're not," Castro said, referring to the millions of Americans who lack health coverage -- leading Biden to respond, "That'll be a surprise to him."

The economy, which has performed well by virtually all major metrics in the past year, went largely undiscussed during the raucous three-hour debate. And, even as House Democrats made a push towards potentially impeaching the president this week, that topic conspicuously did not come up either. (Read more)

- Righteous Father: We pray that the United States will comprehend the weakness and noisy, confused hand-to-hand fight and struggle within the Democratic Party. God, we ask You to intervene and our nation be lifted out of this whirl and we reunite in a wholesome turning to godliness. In Jesus' Name we pray.

- "We can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us." (Philippians 4:13)

Of Church and Congress

Recent polling data by Gallup, Reuters, Monmouth, the Economist, and indicates that 79% of Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing, with only 17% approving. These numbers have been consistent within about three percentage points over the last 10 years. Rasmussen polling analysis indicates "Voters are more critical of the job Congress is doing, and most continue to believe the legislators should work more with President Trump. They also think the president, not Democratic congressional leader Nancy Pelosi, should set the agenda. Most Republicans (57%) and unaffiliated voters (52%) say Congress is doing a poor job, but only 34% of Democrats agree."

With such a dismal approval rating haunting Congress, it doesn't show up at the ballot box. According to the Congressional Research Service, in every election since 1950, 90-to-98% of Congress has been reelected, except for 1964 (87%), 1966 (88%), 1974 (88%), 1992 (88%), and 2010 (85%). Over 69 years, Congress has been reelected at least 85% of the time despite Americans believing Congress is doing a terrible job. When I was in politics, we knew that it was an uphill battle to unseat an incumbent congressman. We knew the answer instinctively from talking to the voters as we went door to door. You could ask how they felt Congress was doing and receive a bunch of cuss words. But they sure liked their Congressman.

In 2013, Gallup explained, "Although Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of the job Congress in general is doing, voters re-elect most members of Congress in every election. This phenomenon is partly explained by the finding that Americans have significantly more positive views of their own representative than they do of Congress overall. About half (46%) of Americans say they approve of the job the representative from their own congressional district is doing. This is on the low end of what Gallup has found historically, although it hasn't asked this question often and not since 1992. From 1990-1992, Gallup asked Americans this question eight times, with approval ratings ranging from 49% to 66% and averaging 58%. In a lone 1977 reading, 55% of Americans approved of their congressional representative."

How does all this relate to the Church? The moral and spiritual fabric of American society is falling apart. Young people are leaving the Church in droves because they say it is irrelevant. Many of these issues can point specifically to the Church as a whole-being a club, teaching bad or extra-biblical doctrine, being judgmental, legalism, money grubbing, accepting anti-biblical precepts to attract pew sitters, and the list goes on. When this is pointed out that the "Church" is far from what the Lord would have it be, people will agree wholeheartedly, but at the same time say that their church is not part of the problem. So we have the same phenomena as with Congress. Christ said in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." Sometimes self-deception is even worse. Things need to change.

Have a blessed and powerful day,

Midwest Farmers Facing Crisis After Heavy Rain, Epic Flooding, and Trade War with China

PERCIVAL, Iowa - The Midwest is still struggling to recover from two devastating floods which brought historic destruction to the region. Just a few months after the epic floods flowed through parts of Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri, you can still smell the rotting corn and see the costly effects of historically high water levels at David Lueth's family farm in Percival, Iowa. Lueth grows corn and soybeans, and the flooding wiped out any chance of planting crops in the 2019 growing season. "The hardest thing for me is I had never gone without planting a crop, even in the 150 years of this farm, so this is all new," Lueth told CBN News.

Floods Lead to the Worst Destruction Ever Seen
Problems started in March when a powerful bomb cyclone struck the Midwest, leading to increases in snowmelt and rain which overpowered the levee systems along the Missouri River. We had such a short time, the roads were thawing out but we couldn't get a lot of the equipment down the roads because of the ruts, the mud, getting stuck," Lueth said. "So it was a real mess. All we could really do was pretty much grab personal items and get out." The powerful storm and subsequent floods led to some of the worst destruction ever seen here, with damage estimates in the billions.
Home Spared "By the Grace of God"
Lueth showed us a picture of his home, which he says was spared by the grace of God. "When I saw this picture I knew we were okay because the porch is okay and the floor is on the level of the porch," he said. The rest of the farm did not fare as well, where the damage will easily be in the tens of thousands of dollars His silos saw the most damage as strong currents collapsed bins filled with corn. Lueth said that corn represented his income for the season, and what he had planned to live on for the rest of the year. While he was forced from his home, Lueth said he remained optimistic. He returned to the farm each day, often by kayak, and prepared to plant corn and soybeans. "We came in early, thought we were maybe going to be able to get a few acres in because waters were receding after March 24th. They were going down, into April, they were going down," he recalled.
Farmer's Faith Sees Him Through the Uncertainty
Then in May, the second flood came through, sweeping away any chance of farming this year. . . (CBN) Read more.

The Good News Corner

Samaritan's Purse Opens an Emergency Field Hospital in the Bahamas
to Treat Hurricane Dorian Survivors:

'We Lost Everything . . . But We Still Have Life'

"There are no operational hospitals on these islands, and there are people suffering not just from injuries from the hurricane but from normal day-to-day things. There are women who are giving birth all the time and nowhere to go. This is four islands with no medical care. They've experienced a great deal of suffering during this hurricane and we're here to relieve a little bit of that suffering and to reach people for Jesus Christ." -Dr. Tenpenny

Samaritan's Purse treated more than 90 patients on the first full day of operations at our Emergency Field Hospital (Sept. 10). That's near capacity! Please continue to pray for the people of the Bahamas and for our medical team members who are working long days caring for people in Jesus' Name.

Lucinda Haven, her daughter Clarena, and grandson Abel weathered Hurricane Dorian inside a public shelter and avoided the dangers of flying glass, rising tides, and having to walk through miles of waist-high water.

Once they returned home, however, Lucinda stepped out of the back of a truck with her family, fell, and fractured the bones in her lower left leg. It was terrible timing as Grand Bahama's healthcare system is desperately struggling to recover after the storm.

While he focuses on recovering from this year's bad weather, another long-range concern is the ongoing trade war with China. Brazil now has taken over 75% of the China market that once went to American farmers. "So, are we going to get those markets back?" he asked. "I'm not too sure." (CBN) Read more.
- Father God, we lift these dear farmers up to You, knowing that You can and will help us in our time of need, if we but ask. We ask that You restore what the locust has eaten in Your name, amen.

- "So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame." (Joel 2:25,26)
