President Trump Delivers on Campaign Promise to Evangelicals: Remarks at Faith and Freedom Coalition

June 28, 2017

President Trump Delivers on Campaign Promise to Evangelicals: Remarks at Faith and Freedom Coalition President Trump is not only taking bold actions in the areas of the workforce and multiple industries to better the American worker, he is also standing up for people of faith and our Constitutional rights. When the President recently spoke with the Faith and Freedom Coalition, he shared more about what his plans are. As he begins with encouraging words, he shares this uplifting promise: “We will always support our Evangelical community and defend your right, and the right of all Americans, to follow and to live by the teachings of their faith. And as you know, we're under siege. You understand that, but we will come out bigger and better and stronger than ever.” It is so vital that we are not only able to follow the teachings of the Bible, but also share these teachings with others, as Jesus called us to do. The President’s promise to protect these rights is embodied in the First Amendment of the Constitution. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” As the President elaborates, he wants to make clear that no one is left behind or forgotten under his leadership. “We are going to battle for every American who has lost a job, for every family who has lost a loved one, for every American of faith who has lost their rights and lost their freedom. The forgotten men and women will never, ever be forgotten again.” It is those that cannot speak for themselves that we must speak out for. It is the very words of Isaiah 1:17 that the President recites. “Learn to do right. Seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless. Plead the case of the widow.” The President continues to underscore the importance of these Biblical truths. “Because as the Bible tells us, we know that the truth will prevail, that God's glorious wisdom will shine through, and that the good and decent people of this country will get the change they voted for and that they so richly deserve.” The President’s calls for change have created tremendous results in multiple areas of the nation. Notably, is America’s Southern border and the decrease of illegal immigration since his Administration has taken office. “We've achieved a record reduction in illegal immigration. Did you see at the southern border, 75%!” He’s keeping the illegal immigrants out while also eradicating those within our borders that want to do harm to our nation. “General Kelly is doing a great job, and we are protecting our families, schools, and cities by removing the gang members. MS-13. We are spreading them out, the drug dealers and criminals from our country and cracking down on the sanctuary cities that protect them.” In addition to the sweeping changes that are taking place within America, President Trump’s decisions on the international stage are making waves. He pulled America out of the Paris Climate Accord, and elaborated on how America would lead the way in environmental change. “America will continue to lead the world on environmental protection. We're going to have clean water, crystal clean.” The President continues, “We're going to have clean air, but what we won't do is let other countries take advantage of the United States anymore and dictate what we are doing and dictate our future.” This is a huge mercy move from God! While many voices have criticized the President’s decision to withdraw America from the Paris Climate Accord, it is important that we look at one simple book, Rules for Radicals, written by Saul Alinsky. This is a book that highlights different tactics to organize a people group and it has been these tactics that have been used to try and organize the world. On the back cover of this book, it is dedicated to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. On the inside cover of this book, it is dedicated to “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom. – Lucifer.” One of the tactics elaborated in this book is how to organize a people around pollution. “Once you organize people around something as commonly agreed upon as POLLUTION, then an organized people is on the move. From there it’s a short and natural step to political pollution, to Pentagon pollution.” It is one thing to be concerned about the effects of our environment, but we must question one’s motives as to why they are focusing on it if it used for wrong intentions. The fact that President Trump pulled us out of the Paris Accord is a mercy move from God. The President continues to roll out reform as He reinstated The Mexico City Policy, protecting the unborn, and the Johnson Amendment. The President elaborated on his actions towards reinstating the Johnson Amendment. “This Executive Order directs the IRS not to unfairly target churches and religious organizations for political speech so the people that you most respect can now feel free to speak to you…” The President continues, “No Federal worker should be censoring sermons or targeting pastors. These are the people we want to hear from… As long as I am President, no one is going to stop you from practicing your faith or from preaching what is in your heart and from preaching – and really, this is so important, from the bottom of my heart, from preaching from the people that you most want to hear and that you so respect.” It is beautiful to see the President standing up for the First Amendment and people of faith, as well his outspoken support for those of faith. See the full story as you can also see the President’s full statements to the Faith and Freedom Coalition, and so much more.

Fulfillment of Prophetic word by Kim Clement; Supreme Court Rulings; and Warren Buffet’s Take on A

June 27, 2017

Fulfillment of Prophetic word by Kim Clement; Supreme Court Rulings; and Warren Buffet’s Take on America’s Economy God is not surprised nor shocked about what is taking place on Earth today or what is being said in the headlines. Amos 3:7 reminds us, “Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.” Kim Clement was one of these prophets. Back in 2007, he declared these words as the Spirit of the Lord led him to speak. “…where Time Magazine will have no choice but to say what I want them to say. Newsweek, what I want to say. The View, what I want to say.” When Newsweek prematurely printed their cover with the words of “Madam President” and the face of Hillary Clinton, they had to print a new cover with “Mr. President” and the face of Donald Trump after he won the Presidential Election. As Newsweek had to say what God wanted them to say, so does The View. When New York’s Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, was a guest on The View, he shared some remarkable statements. “[Donald Trump] is our President and we need this country to be run well.” He continued to express how important it is to stand behind and support the President that our country voted for. “You have an election, whoever wins, then we have to get behind…” It’s important to remember that God said all of this would take place. These are such exciting times to see the prophetic words of the Lord coming to pass. See the full prophetic word from the late Kim Clement, the full statements from Michael Bloomberg, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: prophecy, hope, Time Magazine, elections, and hope.

PROPHECY! “The Economy of this Country shall Change Rapidly” Prophetic Word from Kim Clement Fulfilled as President Trump Holds First Cabinet Meeting This is such an exciting moment in time. The late Kim Clement prophesied that ‘[Donald Trump] will bring the walls of protection on this country in a greater way and the economy of this country shall change rapidly’, says the Lord of Hosts”. We are seeing the fulfillment of prophetic word as President Trump holds his first Cabinet meeting with all of his Cabinet members. For the first time, we see all the Cabinet members gathered together where they briefly share about their individual responsibilities, and we see their faces. There has been a delay getting all the Cabinet members together because of their delayed appointments by Congress. There is an incredible grace upon our leaders to lead. This is something that the Lord is doing. See the full discussion from the President during the Cabinet meeting, each of the Cabinet members sharing about their roles, and so much more.

GOD MOVES WITH MERCY ON AMERICA! Warren Buffet, #2 Richest Man in America Comments on America’s Economy 2017 is going to be a BREAKTHROUGH YEAR!! We are seeing sweeping changes taking place in Washington as well as effects rippling through America’s economy. When seeking to find out how America’s economy is responding, who better to ask than the #2 richest man in America, Warren Buffet. He recently sat down with PBS News Hour to discuss the realities of America’s economy and unemployment. When PBS’s Judy Woodruff sat down with Buffet, she highlighted the highs in America; the Stock Market, and low unemployment, but commenting on the lagging growth of our economy. “…we’re still not seeing the growth that people would like to see. What’s going on?” Unshaken by the present realities of the economy’s growth, Buffet speaks with profound wisdom. “The economy is doing well, but all Americans aren’t doing well.” While President Trump has commented on his desire to increase the present population growth of 2%, Warren Buffet shares his take on a higher growth than 2%. “I don't think probably on average we will have that kind of growth.” As Buffet continues to share, 2% provides more for our economy than most would assume. “If you take 2 percent, we have a half-a-percent population growth, and we have a little immigration, but 2 percent in one generation will add $19,000 of GDP per person, family of four, $76,000 in one generation. So, your children and your children's children and all that, they will live far, far, far better than we live with 2 percent growth.” As Woodruff turns the conversation towards the unemployment rate she comments, “More people are leaving jobs than are joining. Are we seeing some kind of shift?” Buffet shares how different America’s reality of production is compared to 200 years ago. If you think about it, if you go back to 1800, it took 80 percent of the labor force to produce enough food for the country. Now it takes less than 3 percent.” Woodruff continues the conversation by asking about interest rates. “I think you said earlier this year that you weren't worried that the market was in a bubble, because interest rates were staying low. As you know, the Federal Reserve is starting to raise them. Do you still feel the market is not in a bubble?” Buffet comments on his extensive experience in stocks from his first stock purchase in 1942 to today. “And no matter what the headlines say, or terrible things are happening -- we were losing the war in the Pacific when I first bought stocks. So, America's going to do fine over time. America business is going to do fine over time.” When critics comment on the economy of America, we can listen to what Buffet is saying to get an understanding of what is happening. Taking into consideration his accurate predictions and market decisions, Woodruff asks Buffet what is the take away is for those wanting to invest in America. “Today, as people look at you and look at the decisions that you have made, what mainly should people take a look at?” Buffet shares these encouraging words, “They should be willing to bet on America. They shouldn't listen to a lot of jabbering about what the market's going to do tomorrow or next week or next month, because nobody knows. They should just keep buying and buying and buying a little bit of America as they go along. And 30 or 40 years from now, they will have a lot of money.” These are such important truths to understand. We are blessed to be a blessing. We must learn how to manage millions in order to invest millions in the Kingdom.

Repeated Victories Coming out of the Supreme Court If you remember where we came from over the last eight years, the rulings that were coming out of the Supreme Court were totally contradictory towards God and the way of life in America. There has been a mercy shift as God has heard our prayers! Moments after President Trump took office, he nominated Neil Gorsuch as the next Supreme Court Justice, and Justice Gorsuch has since been confirmed. When the President previously established a travel ban, judges ruled it unconstitutional. Now, the tables have turned and the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the President. The President’s Executive order is now in effect. But, this wasn’t the only victory coming out of the Supreme Court. As CBN News reports, the Supreme Court also ruled in favor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Missouri regarding a case involving funds offered by the state. When previous rulings denied funding, stating Trinity Lutheran as a “religious institution”, another change in decision has taken place. As CBN News shares, the Supreme Court decision revealed, "odious to our Constitution." As Michael Farris, from Alliance Defending Freedom, shared, "Believers, like all people, want equality, and that's what this court decision has given us today -- is that when government creates a program, religious people can't be told to stay outside, that we're second-class citizens”. This is so exciting. The minimalization of Christians over the last eight years has been unprecedented. Now, we are beginning to see the Supreme Court take on cases that they haven’t in recent history. As the movement of victory continues to ring out from within the Supreme Court, more hope continues to shine as the Court has revealed they will accept the case of a bakery business owner who refused to bake a cake for a gay couple. Dollars that can be awarded to another organization or institution, cannot be ruled out to be given to a religious organization solely based on a faith based organization. As President Trump stopped the Johnson Amendment, the IRS has been instructed to back off 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. It is so vital to remember, as the Church, you have a voice in America. It’s important that we stand, as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stood for what they believed amidst the ways of their conflicting culture. See the full coverage of what is taking place within the Supreme Court, the victories that are being decided, and so much more.

Prophetic Word on Washington D.C.; Technology Conference at the White House; and PM Netanyahu

June 27, 2017

Prophetic Word on Washington D.C.; Technology Conference at the White House; and PM Netanyahu It is such an exciting time to see so much prophetic fulfillment taking place in our midst and being able to watch what the Spirit of the Lord is doing. As much as we have seen change and an increasing turn around in the White House compared to what was seen in the previous administration, more change is coming. As the Lord delivered a prophetic word to Bill Yount, with Blowing the Shofar Ministries, we are getting a sense of how drastic the Lord is going to move. As Bill Yount shares, “I heard this Jewish carpenter declaring, "The day of trying to force square pegs into round holes is over. I'm carving out a new place for My so called 'misfits' to influence the government of this nation. Since My foolishness is wiser than man's wisdom, many will wonder what I'm up to in Washington, D.C. I'm digging up the foundation of a nation until it hits rock bottom. I will then hewn it out of My rock of ages. Many will witness My explosive power like dynamite, interrupting and shaking the hell out of this nation, releasing a tsunami effect worldwide with the fear of the Lord. The fuse has been lit. Stay focused on Me and don't get addicted to the news of this world. Up until now they have blocked Me out, but the media will soon give way as I blow the hinges off of newsrooms." This is so exciting and lines up with many of the words that the Lord has revealed prophetically as God also revealed to Cindy Jacobs about the swamp in Washington that is being drained. Hear the full word declared regarding the change that is coming to Washington, and so much more.
