Your Eyes and Ears at the Nation's Capital

Only God Can Heal America!

Once again, America is recovering from yet another tragedy. Within a very short time, the nation has experienced one tragedy after another where cities are devastated, lives have been lost and individual lifestyles will be changed forever. One day we’re recovering from monster hurricanes, the next day we’re torn apart by racial or political divisions; and now we are stunned by the worst mass shooting in our history.

In the midst of the voices crying out to God, we can sense God saying to us through the storms and tragedy, “AMERICA, YOU NEED ME!”

What message are we sending around the world while our nation is torn apart by racial strife and division, as our inner cities are ravaged by gangs, as baby parts are sold and the remains are thrown into dumpsters behind abortion mills — and schools are teaching young children how to find their own gender identity?

While many ask, “Can America still be healed?” — The still small voice of God is calling out to us, “AMERICA, YOU NEED ME!”

There is no political solution. There is no social Band-Aid that can be applied. There is no law that can be passed that will heal our sick land. Simply put, America must return to her first love.

How do we find our way back to the God that created this nation? We need to simply get on our faces before the Lord, acknowledge our own sins and shortcomings, and not point the finger at others but rather at ourselves (2 Chronicles 7:14-15).

What else is needed to get our attention?

Without God in our midst, America’s condition is hopeless. With Him, there is hope – but we must act now. America will only be healed by REPENTANCE. God is calling us back to Him so He can heal our land. God alone knows the enemy has even worse plans of devastation ahead for the nation.

“To whom much is given, from him much will be required” (Luke 12:48). Like it or not, our nation was founded on biblical principles, with God at the center of our nation, and America can only be great if America is moral.

America needs her own Yom Kippur – her own Day of Atonement. Let us do, then, what millions of Jews did during their recent celebration of Yom Kippur, by fasting and confessing our personal and national sins, asking for God’s mercy.

Let us also look to the cross where the Savior paid for our sins and make whatever changes we must make in our own lives and families to stand in right relationship with God and our neighbor.

Luke 21:28, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

America: Return to first love!

For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more (Luke 12:48).

Sin is mankind’s enemy because it separates us from God’s presence and protection. Repentance is God’s way for mankind to return to Him and be accepted. If not, our relationship with Him will not be continued for eternity. It is impossible for us to perform to the level of the law that God requires to earn His acceptance. We must realize that “Law” and “Grace” are completely different systems in themselves; and, they are mutually exclusive. If we insist on relating to God by the principle of law (legalism), then our acceptance with God is based on our own performance.

Nineveh repented and God relented. America can repent and God will relent of His judgment.

Revival means lots of prayer and repentance! Prayer is not meant to be our last source of hope – it is totally our first place of hope.

This prophetic word for America was given to Rev. David Lebo:

“I am calling you back! Back to the foundations of what this country was built upon—the truth of My Word. I have heard the cries of My Remnant,” says the Lord, “the tide has shifted! I have heard from Heaven and I am sending down My answer.”

“There will be a great shaking in the land, followed by tremendous blessing. Some may have thought it was too late for America, but I want you to know today that I have heard the cries of My Remnant. I have seen your tears in the nighttime hour and America: you will shine your light once again.”

Choose This Day Whom You Will Serve

The battle cry of this revival is: Choose this Day Whom You Will Serve! If God be God serve Him! If Baal be God serve him. It is a showdown of the ages. Its like Elijah on top of Mount Carmel. You cannot serve two masters. The days of sitting on the fence are over!

“I, the Lord God, I say unto you: Choose this day whom you will serve! If God be God serve Him. Take Him at His Word. Listen, believe, and do! Walk in obedience to whatever I am saying to you in this hour!”

Did the Solar Eclipse Bring Hurricane Harvey? Eclipse Rabbis Point to Prophecy Fulfilled and a time to REPENT!

Four days after the solar eclipse went across America, a hurricane of Biblical proportions slammed into the Gulf Coast of Texas, corresponding precisely to the predictions and deeper understandings of earlier prophecies in the Yalkut Moshe, written by Rabbi Moshe ben Yisrael Benyamin in Safed in 1894. Rabbi Benyamin wrote that when a solar eclipse occurs at the beginning of the Hebrew month of Elul, as this one did, “It is a bad sign for the other nations, bringing great damage to the kings of the East, and bringing great storms.”

“This is precisely what happened before the flood of Noah,” said Rabbi Pinchas Winston, an end-of-days expert and prolific author on the subject. “The Midrash (Talmud) states that God sent unusual weather before the flood in order to rouse the people to do teshuvah (repentance).”

“This is the end of an era for America,” said Rabbi Winston. “The righteous Christians still have salvation within America. They are getting the wake up call that they are about to go through a very difficult time.” It is a call for teshuvah, repentance. He explains that the nations of the world are represented by the sun and the Talmud singles out a solar eclipse as a bad omen for non-Jews.

God uses nature to nudge us along, to trigger us to decide. Any occurrence that is outside of the norm is intended to make people think, each in his own way. People of faith can become stronger in their faith while secular people can be drawn to salvation.

The timing of the eclipse certainly points towards a call for repentance. The eclipse ended just a few hours before the Hebrew month of Elul begins, initiating a forty-day period of repentance culminating in the holy day of Yom Kippur, the most somber day of the Jewish calendar, when tradition holds that God completes his judgment of the world and closes the Book of Life.

”Rabbi Winston believes “This eclipse is the final wake-up call for American Jews to come to Israel. He is the latest in a series of prominent rabbis who have speculated on the spiritual implications of the August 21st solar eclipse. Rabbi Yosef Berger cited a 100-year old prophecy warning that a solar eclipse occurring on the eve of Elul warns of disaster for Kings of the East (the Orient); while Rabbi Lazar Brody explained the eclipse as a warning to America against normalizing Biblically immoral behaviors.

“And in that day —declares my God— I will make the sun set at noon, I will darken the earth on a sunny day” Amos 8:9 (The Israel Bible™).

Why are Confederate monuments and flags being torn down from New Orleans, St. Louis, Gainesville, FL., and Charlottesville to Durham, N.C.?

President Trump pointed out that some of those in attendance in Charlotte were not aligned with hate groups and only protesting the removal of Confederate symbols; while others were very hateful and violent counter-protesters.

Trump told the truth that the battle was between Confederate Flag people sprinkled with Nazi flags and the Antifa that are Communists and anarchists! Antifa is as great a danger as the Nazis and maybe even more because they have the backing of the hard Left. Antifa is a far-left political movement of autonomous anti-fascist groups in the United States having roots back to Nazi-Germany. The Antifa term is loosely used with anti-racism, anti-sexism and anti-captialism.

The Left’s impulse to tear down Confederate history is like Mao’s cultural revolution. These tactics are well known in history. You start by tearing down statues and burning books, and eventually you go after people.

This is not about the Confederacy — this is not about the Civil War. This is about political power and it’s about a small group of people on the Left trying to exert outside influence on American politics by following in the footsteps of Mao, of the armed thugs in Weimar Republic, of the Taliban. These are tactics that are well known.

This has everything to do with identity politics. If you push identity politics, eventually you get around to identity politics for white people, which is a dangerous thing in a country that has a huge white majority. This is why the Left has been sowing these seeds of what’s been happening for a long time. And they are using disruptive movements such as Black Lives Matters with paid thugs to disrupt and cause a civil war. Fifty groups such as the Ford Foundation and George Soros funded groups like the Center for Popular Democracy privately fund BLM.

Such totalitarian impulses exhibited by both leftist protestors and white supremacists are totally un-American. America is not about ethnicity. It’s not about national origin. It’s about creed. There is no place in the American constitutional system for identity politics, left or right.

Pray for law and order to be restored in America. This is a battle for America’s constitutional and biblical values (2 Thessalonians 2:7). Pray for spiritual awakening and revival.

TURNING AMERICA BACK TO GOD

Religious persecution thrives despite the “church-friendly” Trump administration and Congress.

The growing attacks against Christians have become alarming – even non-Christians who hold traditional values – by society and federal judges. One has to wonder how long the open window under the “church-friendly” Trump administration will last. Society’s increased hostility against Christian values has caused many spiritual leaders to believe the current “favor” with government leaders is only for a season (John 9:4). Many fear the current hateful climate could fuel a civil war of hate.

Redefining gender and the right to abort babies are attacking biblical principles everywhere.  Canada recently enacted a piece of legislation called Bill 89. Its net effect is that the Canadian government will be empowered to remove children from the homes of parents who do not agree that their small child may be “transgender.” As if a small child even knows what “gender” means, much less can identify his or her own internal gender fluidity! 

In the United Kingdom, Tim Farron, the leader of the Liberal Democrats had to resign his position stating, “To be a political leader… and to live as a committed Christian, to hold faithfully to the Bible’s teaching, has felt impossible for me.” Liberal Democrat means the opposite in the UK than it does here! When a state seizes totalitarian power, it does not benefit the family, the Christian, or anyone who holds moral, traditional values.

WILL AMERICA SEE JUDGMENT OR REVIVAL?

Only the praying Church can make an appeal to Heaven and call down a fiery revival with divine intervention. Consider participating in an upcoming national prayer event on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. – Oct. 6-9th – “Awaken the Dawn.” This is a call for the body of Christ to pray for revival at the Nation’s Capital, and could be the Nineveh-event I have been praying for the past 32 years. America is ripe for a Nineveh-type revival during this time when God has in place leaders within the government praying for revival; from the president to the cabinet members, and leaders in the U. S. Congress.

Awaken The Dawn will setup fifty tents from 50 states only for the purpose of worship and prayer for three days on the National Mall. The fourth day will be Lou Engle’s meeting, The Call. Visit the website.

PERHAPS WE ARE WAY TOO COMFORTABLE IN THE WESTERN WORLD 

We don’t have to pay much of a price for our faith, and so most people don’t seem to take it very seriously. In the USA we are drowning in money and resources, and there are church buildings everywhere, while the gospel message is lukewarm. As Canada and Europe are moving toward post-Christian societies, America is dangling on the edge of God’s judgment!

On the other side of the world, where standing up for your faith can literally cost you your life, the underground revival is unprecedented. Millions of Muslims all over the world are giving their lives to Jesus Christ, and in many instances this is happening because of dreams, visions and other supernatural encounters.

A former Muslim who is now a Christian pastor in Bangladesh, claims that more than 20,000 Muslims have converted to Christianity in the last 12 months.

The fastest growing underground church in the world is inside Iran where the number of Christian believers has increased from 100,000 in 1994 to 3 million today. We prayed intently for this harvest between 1995-2002, while my ministry was headquartered in the former Iranian Embassy complex in Washington, D.C.

WHO IS THE OVERCOMER? THE BELIEVER IN CHRIST (1 JOHN 5:4)

In Revelation 2-3 Jesus gives seven specific messages to seven churches. In each of these messages He identifies specific challenges the church in each generation faces,  and offers profound rewards for overcoming these challenges.

Jesus warned that the days before His return would be like the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37). It will be business as usual, but they would be characterized by violence and corruption (Genesis 6:11). He also warned that those who name His name would be hated by the world.

Christians in America face being marginalized and ostracized, but make no mistake, the day will come when our beliefs will be outlawed and if we stand up for them, we will be prosecuted and punished.  

Are you ready for that day? While there is still time, make certain your relationship with God is strong. Make sure your family and friends have the opportunity to come to Christ. And prepare yourself for the day when you must choose between your comfort zone and speaking aloud the claims of Jesus Christ.  

Will you answer the call? Jesus told His disciples, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest” (Luke 10:2).

Religious Liberty in the words of Attorney General Jeff Sessions

“…Religious liberty and respect for religion have strengthened this country from the beginning. In fact, it was largely in order to enjoy and protect these rights that this country was settled and founded in the first place…”

“Our Founders wisely recognized that religion is not an accident of history or a passing circumstance. It is at the core of the human experience…”

“So our freedom as citizens has always been inextricably linked with our religious freedom as a people. It has protected both the freedom to worship and the freedom not to believe as well… this Department of Justice will never allow this secular government of ours to demand that sincere religious beliefs be abandoned. We will not require American citizens to give intellectual assent to doctrines that are contrary to their religious beliefs. And they must be allowed to exercise those beliefs as the First Amendment guarantees.”

We invite you to take a stand and sign a petition asking President Trump to make September 11th a National Day of Prayer, Fasting, and Repentance for the safety and protection of America.

The safety of our nation depends upon our trust in Almighty God and the stand we take for His Righteousness. If the United States of America will come to God in humble prayer, He has promised to heal our land and open the windows of heaven. Your signature is a witness and a testimony that will help move our nation toward prayer. Won’t you help join others in meeting the 100,000 needed signatures to send the petition to President Trump.

Let Freedom Ring!

Today our nation once again celebrates its freedom. Just 241 years ago, the Continental Congress finally approved the wording of the Declaration of Independence as a bold declaration that they believed our God-given freedoms were worth fighting for. These words became a light to the world:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The Declaration of Independence has remained a rallying cry and our Constitution a model for other nations. The protection of our most sacred of all our values as enshrined in our Founding Documents and our Pledge of Allegiance, we are, “one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all” speaks to why millions have immigrated to our shores over the past three centuries and why countless others have risked everything to preserve its foundation.

Since the beginning of time, people have willingly sacrificed blood and treasure for the cause of freedom. For generations, brave souls have fought and died for the American dream. It is a core longing woven into God’s design of man and a primary reason that religious liberty was set forth as a leading principle in our nation’s founding. The freedom to choose what and who you believe in should be one of the most basic and fundamental rights afforded to every citizen. And yet, this right is under attack like never before.

As we celebrate our freedom this July Fourth, we rejoice that we live in one of the most blessed countries on the planet… but we must also remain alert and active, never ignore the opposition, maintain a strong voice, and defend our religious liberties with passion and commitment.

God has given America an hour of grace so we can redeem the time. It is incumbent upon all of us to be good stewards of this land which has been ‘blessed by God’ so that future generations may enjoy its Biblical heritage. Pray for God to rain down revival upon the people and restore our land:

Romans 13:11-12, “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.”

One Nation Under God

This month I was privileged to take part in a television special “One Nation Under God” produced at Cornerstone TeleVision in Pittsburgh, PA. The one-hour program will begin airing across the nation on July 3rd and will run through September 11th.

God’s grace has been presented to the Church in America for a little “space in time,” to give God’s people a “nail” in this once holy land called America, that our God may “lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in [the] bondage,” that was steadily encroaching upon our lives (Ezra 9:7-11).

God has indeed given us “a reviving” of hope, to “restore His house,” which is the Church, “and to repair the desolations thereof.” O Lord, open our eyes that we may see and understand the desolation of your House in America, for “we have forsaken thy commandments” in ways we do not know.

Evangelist Billy Graham says, “Many Americans have been developing a designer religion based on what ‘fits in’ with their individual preferences. People frequently search anything but God. Many people do not want to face the truth of the Gospel. They water it down to a myth, causing young and old to doubt the authority of the Bible. We as a nation have turned our back on God who blessed our country because its fundamental principles were grounded in the Word of God. People want designer religion, but I pray that they instead will submit to their Creator who longs to become their God and Savior. He has designed eternal life in Heaven for all those who receive His salvation.”

Graham continues, “We as a nation have turned our back on God who blessed our country because its fundamental principles were grounded in the Word of God.” America’s Founders carried out plans and hopes with the aid of prayer.

“If this nation was born in a meeting based on prayer — some of its most important decisions being made only after careful prayer to God — how can we go on unless there is renewed emphasis on prayer today?” Graham asked.

Billy Graham says the solution for America is simple: “Americans must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They will not only find eternal salvation, but America will remain a great nation.”

Operation Prayer Shield for USA

In this historic time of big changes in Washington, the Trump administration is working every day to help “drain the swamp” and fulfill campaign promises. Pray that the president’s cabinet will be able to correct federal overreach in government areas such as: trade, education, manufacturing, energy, agriculture, corporations, banking, national health care, etc.

Pray the government will get to the truth about the dangerous – and illegal — intelligence leaks that clearly appear to be designed to discredit and derail the Trump presidency. The illegal “Russia” intelligence and spying leaks by key political Obama administration officials is currently being investigated.

Pray SCOTUS will confirm President Trump’s travel ban is constitutional:

The US has a constitutional right to protect its citizens by curtailing immigration policies from known terrorist nations. His executive action temporarily bans travel to the U.S. by people in seven Muslim countries in the Middle East for 90 days; for the stated reason of national security. The Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 grants the president the authority to suspend visas from immigrants of certain countries when the U.S. is at war with those countries. ISIS is imbedded in the seven countries that the travel ban affects. The sticking point is a US First Amendment principle, which says that Congress and the president cannot favor one religion over another.

Pray for sanctuary cities:

Liberals are challenging illegal “sanctuary” policies which violate and undermine the rule of law –- and place the public safety at risk! Starting with Texas’ Governor Greg Abbott at least 33 states have introduced immigration enforcement bills since Donald Trump assumed the presidency in January. With the Trump administration’s pursuit of much stricter immigration law enforcement than occurred under former president Obama, many states are eager to join the battle by passing laws requiring their cities and towns to cooperate with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. Some stronghold areas are San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York City.

Pray for Israel and the Middle East:

The mainstream media, the Left, the United Nations, and many governments of the world are determined to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist; including their right to declare Jerusalem as their capital. The Israeli-Palestinian peace process suffers from the fact that almost all “peace initiatives” for that region are doomed to failure because they are based on the false premise that demands Israel return to its pre-1967 borders.

The Islamic Republic of Iran continues to expand its missile program with a third underground ballistic missile production factory, noting that this factory is part of the clerical regime’s plan to continue developing ballistic missiles regardless of UN Security Council resolutions demanding that these programs be curtailed. Newly re-elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani defiantly stated, “Iran does not need the permission of the United States to conduct missile tests.”

Pray for China to help curtail North Korea’s threats:

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in no uncertain terms that North Korea presents a “clear and present danger,” while also criticizing China for ratcheting up the tension over contested Islands in the South China Sea. He believes Beijing will pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear and missile programs even as Washington pushes China to change course in the South China Sea.
