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.

Prophetic Word from Kim Clement in 2007 and 2015 Coming to Pass in President Trump & Today’s Calls

June 21, 2017

Prophetic Word from Kim Clement in 2007 and 2015 Coming to Pass in President Trump & Today’s Calls for Impeachment were PROPHECIED! God is totally and completely in control of the events that we are presently witnessing in America and the world. As many were shocked when Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States, this was no surprise to God. As Amos 3:7 declares, Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets. The late Kim Clement was one of these prophets. You know if someone is a true prophet if what they prophesy actually comes to pass. God knew these things would come to pass. Now we are living in the fulfillment of the words that have been revealed through Kim Clement. ’Trump shall become a trumpet’, says the Lord… where Time Magazine will have no choice but to say what I want them to say. Newsweek, what I want to say…For the Spirit of God says, ‘Yes, he may have hot blood, but he 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” Things are indeed changing rapidly since the day our present Administration has taken office. During the previous Administration, our borders were being overrun. Amidst the sweeping changes that we are presently seeing in the White House, we are seeing an outcry of voices who are against the results of the Presidential Election. Those who don’t like this outcome are crying out for President Trump to be impeached. Before Donald Trump was even on the map, Kim Clement, once again, prophesied about Donald Trump and the exact headlines that are being broadcasted today. As Kim Clement shared on February 22, 2014, a prophetic vision the Lord gave him, he was shown a man that was standing in Jerusalem. “I was praying for America and I was praying for Israel. Nothing unusual. And, suddenly, going behind my back, going in the form of an arrow, was 100’s of 1,000’s of people. I was stunned by what I saw.” He continues to share how the entire crowd of people imitated him as he raised his hands towards Heaven. When he shouted, they all shouted. “They were one. There were one party of people. It continued until I realized, amongst them stood one that God had set aside to be the leader of this nation.” Being that it was 2014, Clement thought he should be receiving this vision closer to the time that it would take place. God responded to him; “This man has a humble stature, but he is a genius.” Clement continues to describe the encounter with the Lord. “And then I heard ‘gold’. I wasn’t sure if this was attached to his name, but He said to me, “He will restore the fortunes in this nation because of his brilliance.” As Clement was fixated on the man that the Spirit of God was revealing to him, the Spirit of God continued to speak. “This man will throttle the enemies of Israel. This man will throttle the enemies of the West; and there are highly embarrassing moments that are about to occur for many, many politicians in this nation.” As Clement continues to share the details of the prophetic vision that the Lord gave him, he begins to describe what was going to take place in the recent elections. “There will be a shaking of the Democrats in the upcoming elections, but unsettling for the Republicans…I am DISSATISFIED by what emerges from both parties.” Clement was shown a nation that was “itching for a new kind of war with America.” It was then that he was shown the shouts that we are hearing today. “They will shout IMPEACH! IMPEACH! They say, but Nay.” He continued to clarify the times that he was prophesying about. “This nation shall come very suddenly. But he shall not come in the time of President Obama. They shall come when this one arises. My David that I have set aside for this nation…they will say this man is not speaking enough! Clement continues to reveal that the days of leaks in Washington are not over. “And then God says, ‘Highly embarrassing moments when another Snowden arises, and people will become very afraid’. They will say ‘we have no protection’. And then God says, “AM I IMPRESSED WITH YOUR WEAPONS OF WAR? AM I IMPRESSED WITH THE STRENGTH OF YOUR MEN’S LEGS? HA! I HAVE SAID I WILL BRING THIS NATION TO ITS KNEES!” And God said, “You have been humbled, and yet some more, and then you shall hear the sounds of great victory.” Kim Clement has demonstrated himself as an accurate prophet as we can see how each of these words are accurate and are coming to pass. The Lord has revealed that “Washington D.C. is a house of cards” and also revealed that “the seat of evil will come down and the seat of the righteous will rise”. As God has spoken many times about the coming shakings in America, He has also spoken how enemies will try to come in from the East and West, but “We are going to be victorious over our enemies. WE WILL MOW THEM OVER!” Kim Clement again, shared a powerful prophetic word in 2015 about what would be seen in 2017. “I’m standing, I’m feeling like I’m standing in 2017, and things have been disrupted so badly that people are confused because their plans didn’t work. And yet, I’m seeing this very strong figure standing in the United States of America saying, ‘Now we got to clean up the MESS!’’ These are the very words that have been used time and time again since President Trump has taken office. Kim Clement continues to share prophetically, what he was shown in 2015, about what would happen in the Administration in 2017. “They have the skill and the ability to do it. They will say, ‘the pen is already signed’, and I’m hearing this strong figure saying, “I DON’T CARE WHAT WAS SIGNED! WE WILL MAKE THE CHANGES!” What Clement was shown in the next Administration, which is what we presently know as the Trump Administration, contradicts what many in the news media proclaim. “So, I got caught up in the next Administration…and I didn’t see bad. I saw calmness. I saw peace.” When we look at a montage of media clips, we can clearly see the barrage of voices calling out for the impeachment of President Trump and the calls for investigations that would lead to impeachment. “Is that potentially, impeachable if it’s an obstruction of justice?” Another anchor asks, “Is it an impeachable offense even fact, the President did obstruct justice?” Yet another, “What do you think of this impeachment possibility? What’s more needed to prove obstruction of justice…what more do you need?” It is important to remember, that in 2014, God said all of this would happen. An important matter to remember when looking at all the claims and accusations against President Trump, is the existence of evidence. Regardless of what case is brought before a judge, regardless of how much money is spent on legal defense, if there is no evidence, the case is thrown out. Sean Hannity recently focused on the lack of evidence compared to the continual cries of the Russian narrative that is pushed in the media. “There is clearly something happening here. The ‘destroy Trump Democrats’, they have been pushing that ‘Russian-Tin-Foil-Hat-Conspiracy-Theory’ with zero evidence.” Hannity then points to the statements from Former CIA Director, John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, Senator Joe Manchin, as well as others. In each of these statements, there is a continual common denominator: “no evidence of Russian collusion”. Regardless of what darkness we see in the world, God has called us to be children of the light, as 1 Thessalonians 5:5 reveals, “You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.” If we have made a decision to receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we no longer belong to the darkness. The Church are called out ones, not meaning buildings, but the Church, as people. As we follow the Lord, be encouraged to know that God holds all of Creation in the palm of His hands and He is not surprised or shocked about what is happening in the news media.

2017 is the Breakthrough Year! President Trump in the Infrastructure Summit, Workforce Development,

June 21, 2017

2017 is the Breakthrough Year! President Trump in the Infrastructure Summit, Workforce Development, and Air Traffic Control Modernization This is the breakthrough year! It is so exciting to see prophecy come to pass. As the Trump Administration continues to make more and more changes in Washington D.C., we are seeing continual breakthroughs in many different industries across the nation. President Trump has gathered mayors, governors, and tribal leaders for an Infrastructure Summit. He traveled to Wisconsin for a Workforce Development Roundtable. Vice President Mike Pence sat down with women entrepreneurs to listen to the damaging effects of Obamacare on their businesses; and President Trump has announced the Air Traffic Control Reform Initiative. This truly is the BREAKTHROUGH YEAR! As President Trump held an Infrastructure Summit at the White House. He invited mayors, governors, as well as tribal leaders to find out what needs to be done to solve the many problems of America’s infrastructure. As the President shares, “Today, we're here to talk about how we will create the infrastructure of the future, by partnering with the states and local governments.” The President understands that it is these men and women local leaders that knows best what needs to be updated throughout our nation. President Trump’s Infrastructure Plan has multiple areas of focus: “lower the average permit time, from 10 years to 2 years and unleash Private Sector capital & expertise to rebuild our cities and states” as well as other key points. The President is not simply calling for change in all areas of the nation from Washington D.C., he is personally visiting specific areas where he is expecting these changes to be implemented. He traveled to Wisconsin to meet with Governor Scott Walker and industry workers for a Workforce Development Roundtable. What is additionally encouraging is that the Trump Administration is not simply calling for change, but are deeply interested in how the existing laws, from the previous administration, are affecting America’s citizens. Vice President Pence sat down with Women Entrepreneurs to find out how Obamacare was affecting their businesses, with double digit increases in costs for their benefits. As Vice President Pence talks with Kelly Moore, owner of Eastern Ohio’s GKM Auto Parts, she shares in detail how, due to the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, she was no longer able to provide insurance benefits to her employees. “It was gut-wrenching to tell them that I was ending their benefit of insurance. And they are decent people who work hard for us, and we appreciate their good talents.” This didn’t happen overnight. Moore did all she could to think creatively so that benefits were still an option before the inevitable became reality, cutting benefits all together. “We did try by splitting the premium maybe 20 at the beginning; 70-30, 60-40. We also dropped spousal coverage. We've made efforts to make it affordable, but they no longer have the premiums or the deductibles that they could afford with the amount that they were paying.” Moore’s experience isn’t unique, as Vice President Pence noticed the empathetic nodding from other business owners as Moore shared her story. Amy Pope-Wells, owner of Link Staffing Services in Jacksonville, Florida, shared a similar story, and how mandates from Obamacare were directly affecting her business. “We had clients, which I never even envisioned being a problem, who refused to start doing business with us because under the regulation we were required to list ACA charges on our invoices.” She continued to elaborate on why the customers were against it. “And those clients said, we did not vote for it. We did not want it. We do not appreciate it.” She also shared how the changes effects of Obamacare caused her to get into the benefits industry in order to understand how it was affecting her employees. But then the quagmire of the rules and regulations started, “We found ourselves having to spend – everybody in our office spending time on benefits management, medical procedures being denied, people not understanding the rules or the processes. We got into the insurance business. We physically had to learn how to educate and support our team, and we're not in the insurance business.” There is an urgent need to remove and replace Obamacare. It’s not true what is being said about the Affordable Care Act, that it meets the needs of Americans. We can see clearly from these two testimonies that it is anything but that. President Trump has also recognized the dire need for change and reform to come to the airline industry. As many traveling Americans can understand, wait times in airports and delayed arrivals have become normal. Those within the Air Traffic Control community, and pilots themselves also understand the need for change. As President Trump recently announced the Air Traffic Control Reform Initiative, there are many areas that are being transformed in this industry. As the President calls for fewer wait times, and flights that arrive on time, he describes how this will happen. “Since the early days of commercial air service, the federal government has owned and operated the United States air traffic control system. Yet, more than a half a century later, the government is still using much of the exact same outdated technology.” The GPS’s that have become commonplace in our cellphones, are not even in the planes that we travel on. The President continues to elaborate; “…our air traffic control system still runs on radar and ground-based radio systems that they don't even make anymore, they can't even fix anymore, and many controllers must use slips of paper to track our thousands and thousands of planes that are up in the air.” What is additionally shocking is the lack of updates within the technology of our airports compared to the overwhelming increase of air travel since it was first announced. “Our air traffic control system was designed when roughly 100,000 people flew at our airports each year. We are now approaching nearly one billion passengers annually.” No longer will the FAA be over each of these areas, but will be overseen by private non-profits so that the FAA can focus solely upon safety. It is encouraging to see our leadership taking the interactive and involved role and making so many changes that are needed in our nation.

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.

We Honor the Life of IDF Soldier Sgt Maj Hadas; also President Trump’s New Policy Towards Cuba; Ju

June 20, 2017

We Honor the Life of IDF Soldier Sgt Maj Hadas; also President Trump’s New Policy Towards Cuba; Judge to take down Cross? Tragedy has struck, once again, in Jerusalem as an IDF Soldier, Hadas Malka was stabbed to death defending Israel. There are eight different gates that allow entrance into the Old City of Jerusalem. One of these gates is the Damascus Gate, where Malka was standing her post. We must have empathy and concern about what is happening within Israel, and to the Israeli people. Hananya Naftali, a former IDF Soldier, shares about how this horrible tragedy has affected him as he currently lives in Israel. With raw footage from Damascus Gate, Naftali describes what took place during this horrible moment. “On Shabbat Eve, 3 Palestinian terrorists, armed with knives and weapons attacked two different locations in Jerusalem.” He continues to describe how the attacker focused on Hadas. “One of the terrorists assaulted Hadas, while she fought him with bare hands for seconds trying to pull off her weapon and defend herself. She was stabbed several times, was rushed to the hospital, but died of her wounds.” Naftali continues to reveal the sobering reality of this harsh display of evil as he reminds us all about Hadas’s family. “Can you imagine what her family is going through right now? They sent their own daughter to protect the land of Israel and she made the hardest sacrifice of all – HER LIFE.” These moments are absolutely tragic as our hearts go out to the Malka family and all of those who knew Hadas. But, this reality is even more tragic. Naftali continues to share about how he was stunned reading the news about the death of Hadas Malka and the celebratory response by Hamas. “When I read the news today, I saw that Hamas was celebrating her death; and it shocks me EVERY TIME! How can anyone celebrate a human being’s death?” This is the truth that many around the world are not aware of. “This is what Israel is dealing with. Israel is dealing with terrorists on a daily basis. I’m not saying this because I read it somewhere. I’m saying this from my personal experience when I was in the IDF.” This is the truth that we must share with the world. Terrorists who kill Israelis, or die carrying out terrorist attacks against Jews are praised by the Palestinian Authority. On top of their celebrations, the families are given money due to their acts of terrorism and streets are named after these terrorists. Evil is not only condoned, it is celebrated! Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sarah visited the Malka family to share their condolences for the loss of their daughter and sister. As the Prime Minister sits with the grieving family, he shares these honoring words; “We came to salute her, to bow our heads in her memory, to be with you all. It’s just a terrible loss.” Hadas’s father shared about how Hadas impacted Israel with the life that she lived. “There are people who made a mark on the Jewish people and the State of Israel.” He continued, “Most of them accomplished this during their long life but our Hadas was so young and [yet] she made a mark of loving the nation and the state.” Many in the Israeli community honored Hadas in a funeral for her eulogizing the beauty of her life that she lived. We must pray for the peace of Israel. It is encouraging to know that we have leadership in America that stands up for and supports Israel, President Trump, Vice President Pence, and many others. This is a new season. We are sharing the details of this tragedy because we must raise awareness of what is taking place within Israel. This will be talked about in the heavenlies. We need to maintain our connection with human beings in the land of Israel. We are thankful for Hananya Naftali and his empathetic report on what is happening in Israel. As an unofficial field reporter for VFNtv, we believe that you can be the next field reporter and share what is happening to reveal what is truly happening in areas around the world.

U.S. Policy on Cuba Just Shifted: President Trump Reverses U.S. Policy on Cuba Wild things were happening with the relations between the United States and Cuba during the past Administration. It is important that we learn the history of what is and has taken place in our nation and in the nations around us. Only 90 miles south of Florida is the small island of Cuba, which was once a land of free people. Then Fidel Castro came and immediately began his oppressive leadership over the Cuban people. Just moments after Fidel Castro took over leadership, he murdered 71 leaders. One of these leaders was the police chief of Santiago de Cuba. The police chief’s son, Luis Haza, who was only eight years old at the time, is a gifted and talented violin player. When the Castro regime learned of his musical talents, they immediately attempted to recruit him to play for Castro. But, the young Haza refused to comply. As “NO” was not an acceptable answer for the Castro militants, they barged into one of Haza’s practice sessions and demand that he play his violin for him. As the young boy shook with fear, he began to play. The song he chose caused the entire room to immediately be silent. “The Star-Spangled Banner” was his choice of music. In an amazing full circle moment, while President Trump spoke regarding the U.S. policy towards Cuba, he not only spoke about Luis Haza, he gave the stage to Haza as he played the “The Star-Spangled Banner” just as he did as a young eight-year-old boy. It was this full circle moment that President Trump highlighted as he honored the Cuban people talking about his changes to the U.S. Policy with Cuba will no longer be as it has been. “We all accept that all nations have the right to chart their own paths -- and I'm certainly a very big believer in that -- so we will respect Cuban sovereignty. But we will never turn our backs on the Cuban people. That will not happen.” Considering the long-standing history and relationship between America and Cuba, one cannot deny the horrible oppression the Cuban people have experienced. President Trump recognizes that we can no longer tolerate such oppression. “Over the years, a special sympathy has grown between this land of the free, and the beautiful people of that island, so close to our shores and so deeply woven into the history of our region. America has rejected the Cuban people's oppressors. They are rejected. Officially today, they are rejected.” President Trump continued to share the immense hope that America represents to the Cuban people. “And to those people, America has become a source of strength, and our flag a symbol of hope. I know that is exactly what America is to you and what it represents to you. It represents the same to me.” The story of hope and encouragement is embodied in the overcoming life of Luis Haza and the remarkable journey he underwent as it all culminated in the same ballad being played before the President of the country that he loves so dearly. This is such an encouraging moment. The Cuban people are such a beautiful people as the Holy Spirit has been moving mightily upon so many communities as reports have revealed a mighty revival is taking place in the land. These are such encouraging times for both Cuba as well as the United States. See the full report as you hear President Trump share the remarkable story of Luis Herez, his wonderful rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner with his violin, the prophetic words about Cuba, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: encouragement, hope, Raul Castro, Fidel Castro, President Donald Trump, The Trump Administration, Holy Spirit, revival, church growth, and hope.

Federal Judge Orders Cross in Pensacola Park to Come Down There have been outlandish laws that have been passed in history, but this one is sure to shock many. According to Fox News, a federal judge has recently decided that a Cross erected in Pensacola Florida’s Bayview Park violates the law and must be taken down. More specifically, District Judge Roger Vinson shared these remarks, “I am aware that there is a lot of support in Pensacola to keep the cross as is, and I understand and I understand and respect that point of view.” He continued his remarks, “But, the law is the law.” According to the article, the lawsuit was presented on behalf of four Pensacola citizens. Four. It’s amazing how two pieces of lumber can cause such controversy in our nation. The reason is because it’s more than two simple sticks put together. The Cross is where God met mankind, and Jesus Christ took the sins of mankind upon Himself so that he took the away the curse of the law. The Cross is very powerful, His name is very powerful, when you mention His name, everything breaks loose. This is the difference between every false god that sets themselves up as god, and Jesus Christ who is the One True God. What happened on the Cross is not the full story. After dying on the Cross, and being buried, Jesus Christ was resurrected on the third day and is now in Heaven on the right hand of the Father. Jesus is no longer on the Cross. HE’S ALIVE! Those who are trying to fight their battles in the legal courtrooms of America will find out soon enough that their battle is truly with God and no one else. The Cross in Bayview Park has been in place since 1941 and was replaced in 1969 by the Pensacola Jaycees that is seen today. The truth is, God belongs in the public square. Many of the monuments in Washington point to the goodness of our God and His hand upon our nation. In communities such as Pensacola, we shouldn’t be surprised that these events are happening when it was the same community that allowed a satanist to carry out the invocation during a City Council meeting. We must pray for the leadership of Pensacola, as well as the leaders of our communities all over our nation. See the full report of what is taking place in Pensacola, why the Cross of Jesus Christ is so powerful, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: First Amendment, Bayview Park, prayer, godly leadership, city council, and intercession. Greg and John shared in this segment.

Assassination Attempt on Congressmen Steve Scalise; and the Cry for Unity

June 20, 2017

Assassination Attempt on Congressmen Steve Scalise; and the Cry for Unity Can you imagine being part of a charity baseball game that has been taking place every year since 1909; and as you are practicing with co-workers and friends, shots from a high-powered rifle not only echo throughout the entire field, but then pierce your hip and cause devastating effects to your body. This is what happened at this year’s charity baseball practice game as Republican Congressmen were practicing for the upcoming game in Alexandria Virginia. Reportedly, this shooter was a former Bernie Sanders supporter and had a “hit-list” of other Congressmen that he was targeting. This is absolutely tragic! Raw footage from a bystander, walking their dog, captures the repeated gun fire echoing out in the air along with screams from authorities pinpointing the location of the shooter. While all of those who were practicing at the time, Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise suffered a gunshot to his hip, while others dove into the dugouts seeking any refuge they could find. While Congressmen are running FROM the shooter’s gunfire, three members of the Capitol Police Department ran TOWARDS the gunfire. Officers Crystal Griner, David Bailey, and Henry Cabrera rushed the attacker with pistols and ultimately neutralized the threat. While removing the threat, Officer Griner was shot in the ankle, and Officer Bailey suffered a minor injury. In this face of danger, they didn’t run! If it weren’t for these brave law enforcement officers, many Congressman could have been massacred on this day. Thank God that this assassination attempt was stopped. Texas Congressman John Williams spoke to reporters as he shared his first-hand experience of what took place moments before shots rang out and moments afterwards. He understands the brave actions of the Capital Police Officers stopped this day from being much worse. “There could have easily been 25 deaths or more today.” Choking back tears, he continues to recount his memories of the events as he was on the third base line before the shots began, which placed him no more than 20 yards from the shooter. “I went around the first base side to hit Congressman Scalise ground balls. I did that. The first one, I hit ‘em, the shots went off.” After the shooter began his terror, Congressman Williams dove into the first base dugout along with many others. “Zach Barth, who works for me, was shot while he was retrieving balls in the outfield. When I got into the dugout, it wasn’t ten seconds, then Zach had come running in from the outfield, and he literally, we landed in each other’s arms. He held me. I held him.” As Congressman Williams continues through the sequence of events in his memory, he shared that there were reportedly 60 shots fired. He continues to thank the Officers that ran towards the shooter. “We had no arms. All we had was bats.” This is an absolute tragedy. This evil that is taking place is not normal. We cannot wink at this evil that is becoming prevalent throughout our country, whether it’s a comedian holding up a look-alike head of our President, a play acting out the stabbing of our President, or any action of rebellion. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan understands the urgency of this moment as he recently addressed the House regarding this assassination attempt. “There are very strong emotions throughout this house today. We are all horrified by this dreadful attack on our friends and our colleagues and those that serve and protect this Capital. We are all praying for those who are attacked and their families.” Speaker Ryan continues to talk about the shock of this tragedy, but that this was not an attack on one Congressman but on every Congressman and Congresswoman. “An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.” As Congressman Williams shared his profound gratitude to the police officers who stood in the line of duty, Speaker Ryan also expresses his deep thanks for each of them and the actions they carried out. “I spoke with Special Agent Bailey and Special Agent Griner this morning. One was being treated and one was about to go into surgery. I expressed our profound gratitude to them. It is clear to me, based on various eye witness accounts, that without these two heroes, Agent Bailey and Agent Griner, many lives would have been lost.” As we can all surely imagine the horrifying images that many are trying to forget to remember, Speaker Ryan encourages all of us to remember how prayer has transcended party lines as he recalls a photograph that deeply impacted him. “But, there is one image in particular that this House should keep, and that is a photo I saw this morning of our Democratic colleagues gathered in prayer this morning after hearing the news.” As Speaker Ryan shares his heart, he understands that those standing alongside him as elected officials are more than their titles or positions, each one of us are still human beings. “…we do not shed our humanity when we enter this chamber. For all the noise and all the fury, we are one family.” As stressful as it is to carry out the decisions that must be carried out as an elected official on a daily basis, Speaker Ryan encourages all of his peers to come together in unity. “I ask each of you to join me, to resolve to come together; to lift each other up, and to show the country, to show the world that we are one house, the people’s house united in our humanity. It is that humanity which will win the day and it always will. God bless.” It is so beautiful to see the overwhelming response and support of our elected leaders just moments after this tragic event took place. As the game still went on, it was relocated to the Washington National Park, and Ivanka Trump was in the dugout showing her support to all of our Congressmen. While the game still went on, all of the players started the game with prayer as they joined together to kneel as one in the infield. President Trump also shared his remarks on this tragic event during his weekly address. He shared about how he visited Congressman Scalise in the hospital and how millions from across the nation are praying for him. “435 Members of Congress, and 300 million Americans, are pulling for him, praying for him, and pledging to him our full and total support.” President Trump shared his thanks and gratitude towards Agents Griner and Bailey for their brave actions. “They saved the lives of our Members of Congress and prevented that dark day from becoming a tragedy beyond imagination. They, like so many other courageous police officers, represent the very best of us. We salute them, and we also salute members of Alexandria Police, Fire and Rescue.” As Speaker Ryan spoke about the importance to come together in unity during this time, President Trump also underscored this need as well. “Though we have our differences, what unites us is so much stronger: our love of country, our devotion to its people. Now more than ever, these values must guide us – and bring us closer together.” This is such an important moment to remember to pray for all of our leaders, those in Washington, and our President. Many different sources are not talking about this event for what it is: an assassination attempt. We must remember the dangers that our leaders face each and every day. See the full report of what is taking place in our nation’s capital, how Congress is responding, the encouraging unity that is taking place, and so much more.

Does the book “The Naked Communist” talk about how to flip a Democratic Country to a Communist C

June 20, 2017

Does the book “The Naked Communist” talk about how to flip a Democratic Country to a Communist Country? There was a day when Communism was a credible and real threat to the Democracy of America. Now, in present day, has anything changed? Some would say yes; that Communism is a thing of the past. But, is it really? Here we are today, all these years later, and Communism is being brought to the forefront of discussions as a credible threat to the way of life in America. In 2014, Dr. Ben Carson was interviewed on the Kelly File and he shared about how these threats have materialized in present day America. Dr. Ben Carson talks about the exceptionalism of this great nation, but there have been others in recent history who have also been exceptional: Greece and Spain, just to name a few. As Dr. Carson continues, these nations began making decisions that would result in their demise. “They became enamored with sports and entertainment, lifestyles of the rich and famous, they tolerated political corruption, they lost their moral compass, they lost their vision. These are all the things that are happening to us.” Dr. Carson points out that we are a Judeo-Christian nation and we have the evidence of history to make the right decisions in our situations so that we don’t follow down the same paths. It is important to recognize the immense freedom that God has afforded us to be privileged to be in America. We can use this power of freedom for evil or for good. America stands for good and so many good things have come from this great nation. Yes, we’ve made mistakes. As Dinesh D’Souza elaborates, in great detail, in his movie, America: Imagine the World Without Her, that America has made mistakes, but compared to other nations in the world, America has accomplished astonishing accolades. With this reality in mind, Megyn Kelly comments on the empty roles of other nations who could replace this void if America would step back from the role it presently fills. “When Europe can afford to sit back, because we have America that has our back. America doesn’t have the same luxury. No one is going to step in, no one good, if we step back and wait for somebody to fill this void.” Look at what took place when America rescinded from its place of leadership in the world over the last eight years. ISIS reared its evil an ugly head throughout the world. Soldiers are beheaded in London. Journalists are beheaded. Evil loves a vacuum. The reality is this, we have difficult days ahead of us. The Benham Brothers shared about the difficulty of the days ahead for America and have said that bloodshed is coming to America. But, it’s not for the reason one may think. According to Charisma News, Jason and David Benham, authors of Whatever the Cost, state “bloodshed is coming to America, and it won't be a response to oppression but the result of aggression—against God and our constitutional form of government”. The ensuing battle is not in warfare on the battlefield, but in the public arena. As the article continues, “The increasingly violent acts in our streets, town-hall meetings and university campuses are simply birth pangs for a greater upheaval that's brewing hot—and it's not by accident.” The Benham brothers point to a book that was presented to Congress in 1963 Rep. A.S. Herlong, Jr. of Florida: The Naked Communist. “He submitted the book's list of goals, which revealed how revolutionaries intended to turn our nation from constitutionalism to communism without firing a single bullet.” Dr. Carson points to the same book in his interview with Megyn Kelly after he is asked about the dangers of divisiveness in America. “There are elements within our society, whose only desire is to drive a wedge into any little crack that they can find. Therefore: race wars, income wars, age wars, gender wars, religious wars…” When Kelly interrupts to ask how damaging all of this is, Dr. Carson retorts, “It’s extremely damaging. A house divided against itself cannot stand”. He then points to the purpose of why these ‘wedges’ are taking place; “is to make people throw their hands up in disgust, say ‘this isn’t working. We need to move to another system’”. These are the very teachings and methodologies that are being implemented to push America to Communistic structure. Dr. Carson points to people like Saul Alinsky and Karl Marx and their writings that verify these very tactics. As Dr. Carson begins to explain how all of this is also found in the book The Naked Communist, he elaborates on why it is applicable. “It laid out the whole agenda. You would think, by reading it, that it was written last year, showing what they’re trying to do to American families, what they’re trying to do to our Judeo-Christian faith…” Some may casually remark that this would never happen. But, when we begin to look at just A FEW of the goals listed in the book, you may be shocked as to how effectively these goals have not only been implemented, but also accomplished in America. Following are some of the goals: 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks. 18. Gain control of all student newspapers. 19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations that are under Communist attack. 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions. 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures. 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them censorship and a violation of free speech and free press. 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as normal, natural, healthy. 28. Eliminate prayer or any phrase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of separation of church and state. 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the common man. 31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the big picture. 32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics and others. 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. 42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition, that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use a united force to solve economic, political or social problems. As we read through each of these, we can honestly say to ourselves, ‘check’, ‘check’, ‘check’. They have all been carried out in America AND justified as normal. They have become normal, and then find yourself threatened if you express yourself as one who has views contrary to these. If we remove God out of the public square, we will not like the consequences. Harvard Business School's Clayton Christensen describes his encounter with a Marxist Communist from China who was completing a scholarship. After asking the student if he learned “anything surprising or unexpected”, Christensen was surprised to receive the response the student gave. “I had no idea how critical religion is to the functioning of democracy.” He continued to share, “the reason why democracy works is not because the government was designed to oversee what everybody does. But rather, democracy works because most people, most of the time, voluntarily choose to obey the law. And, in your past, most Americans attended a church or a synagogue every week and they were taught there by people who they respected.” This student understood that Americans did this because “they weren’t just accountable to society, they were accountable to God”. Taking all of this in, Christensen expressed a concern that he had seen and noticed from his own life’s experiences. “As religion loses its influence over the lives of Americans, what will happen to our democracy?” He continues his thoughts; “what will happen to the institutions that are going to teach the next generation of Americans that they too need to voluntarily choose to obey the laws? Because if you take away religion, you can’t hire enough police.” If we pull God out of our society, we will have no boundaries. Without the Constitution there are no laws, and without God there is no obedience to those laws. While continual voices want to voice criticism about our forefathers, we must remember that we have our country because of them. We cannot continue to yell at darkness. We must understand, as the Church, that we are called to transform our culture for the Kingdom. We must recognize the 7 Mountains of Culture and play our role where God has called us to. We must recognize that while voices in different areas of society are ridiculing and criticizing what has been established in America, we must walk in agreement with the plans and purposes of God. See the full discussion to get a comprehensive contextual understanding of what is taking place in America, how Communist tactics are being implemented and carried out in America, how important it is to carry out our roles and purposes in the 7 Mountains of Culture, and so much more.

Three attacks in three months Great Britain under siege by radical Islamic terrorism As we have shared the continual reports of Radical Islam throughout the world, evil strikes again. This marks three attacks of terrorism in Great Britain in three months. First was the West Minister Bridge, then the Manchester Concert, and now the London Bridge. Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone in Great Britain and all of those affected from this tragedy. The Telegraph is reporting that “a vehicle had struck pedestrians on the London Bridge.” After then continuing to Borough Market, the three individuals in the vehicle then got out and began stabbing and cutting people with knives. “Armed response officers then responded very quickly and bravely and confronted the three male suspects who were shot and killed in Borough Market within eight minutes of the first call.” As a result of this brutality, seven innocent people lost their lives. As more and more attacks happen, people can quickly become numb to the atrocities that are taking place within their communities. Independent.co.uk is reporting how Poland’s Prime Minister Beata Szydlo has commented on these attacks addressing that there is a connection to the migration. “I hear in Europe very often; “Do not connect the migration policy with terrorism,' but it is impossible not to connect them”. As countries in the European Union respond and comment on the urgency of getting a handle on their borders, we can understand, with greater clarity, why President Trump has made decisions in the past regarding America’s borders. Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage shared, "It seems to me our political leaders really ought to start saying sorry… What these politicians have done for the last 15 years may well affect how we live in this country for the next 100 years.” According to Fox & Friends, ISIS has taken responsibility for this attack. Understanding the tragedy that many are going through in London, President Trump shared his condolences and concerns with this tweet; “Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U.K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!” Considering what has taken place, the President tweeted his thoughts on implementing a travel ban in America. “People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!” The President also tweeted; “That’s right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won’t help us protect our people!” It’s important to understand that we have elected our leaders in America. Now that they have taken their places in government, we must not only allow them to do their job, but we must pray for them. We cannot become critical and judge every decision that is being made. Leadership is the easiest thing to do, when you’re not the one leading. It’s easy to quickly criticize the President’s decision to implement a travel ban on certain countries shortly after he took office. There is credible information that he has access to what most of us will never know. When Gen. John Kelly (Ret.) Director of Homeland Security testified regarding Border Security and Immigration Enforcement, he said these words; “The vetting on the other end, in those seven countries are suspect…” The Director continued to point out, “I believe the vetting on the other end right now is not adequate to protect the nation and then of course we’re considering other measures adding to the vetting on the other end so that we can ensure even more so that the right people are coming to the United States and not bad people.” Considering the amount of intelligence and information that one would have to be privileged to, we can better understand the comments he made when speaking on Fox & Friends to an anchor, “If he knew what I know about terrorism, he’d never leave the house in the morning.” But, there is an upside to his statement. As he continues, “But, the good news, again, we have the finest men and women, in uniform, out of uniform, police officers, local law enforcement, New York City cops protecting us.” If we are to focus on these occurrences solely by themselves, we can quickly become engrossed in them and become filled with fear and dread. But, these events point to a greater reality. There is a physical battle, and there is a spiritual battle. As Americans, we can view things in terms of our Constitution. As Christians, we need to keep things in view of a Biblical perspective. The very reality of these terrorist attacks happening more and more, and closer together, is a sign of the times that we are in the last days. We must not be overcome with fear or dread, but continue to live in faith and full confidence in Jesus Christ. See the full report of what is happening in London, throughout the world, how many are responding to this, and so much more.

President Trump delivering on his promise by signing two bills standing with military and law enforc

June 6, 2017

President Trump delivering on his promise by signing two bills standing with military and law enforcement As President Trump has been doing since he took the office in the White House, he has delivered on yet another campaign promise as he carries out his support of our law enforcement by signing the Public Safety Officer Benefit Improvement Act Bill into law. We always want to make sure that the families of those who serve is taken care of, and this bill does exactly that. As the President shared many encouraging remarks of our law enforcement, he was surrounded by many men and women in uniform. “We will always support the incredible men and women of law enforcement. I can speak very strongly for myself and for Mike Pence, our Vice President. We are behind you 100 percent. Every single day America's law enforcement officers, firefighters, first responders, and their families make tremendous sacrifices for their communities and for their nation.” So often, we can take our law enforcement for granted, and forget that it is only when we need them the most that they are first on our mind. The President shares the accurate reality of what they endure each and every day. “When a home is threatened, when danger visits our doorstep, when innocent lives are on the line, Americans turn to their courageous officers of law enforcement because we know they are here to serve and protect us all. They sacrifice every day to keep us safe.” Not only is there a sacrifice paid everyday as uniforms across America are donned as these brave men and women begin their patrols and shifts in their respective areas, but there is an absolute sacrifice when one is killed in the line of duty. “Our duty as Americans is to honor their service and sacrifice and to protect those who protect us. Today I am proud to sign two laws to help fulfill that very, very sacred commitment.” The President then begins to share how the Public Safety Officer Benefit Improvement Act will help those who have been injured in the line of duty, as well as their families. “The Public Safety Officers Benefits Improvement Act will help disabled officers and firefighters and families of those who fall in the line of duty quickly receive all of the benefits they so justly deserve.” The President continued to share, “For too long injured officers have suffered and the children of fallen officers have put their dreams of college on hold, while bureaucracy delayed crucial benefits, made it impossible for their families. No longer. It's unacceptable, and it's going to end today. In fact, it's going to end in about one minute.” This bill is not just about getting the needed benefits to our law enforcement, first responders, and their families, but it is about cutting the red tape of bureaucracy so that these families get their benefits quickly. “This bill speeds approval times by giving state and local enforcement a greater role in determining eligibility and lets applicants track the progress of their claims online.” This is important. It is awesome to see the President, once again, put his words of promise to action, with pen and paper. The disrespect of law enforcement has been outspoken and appeared to be celebrated over the last 8 years. What we are witnessing is a complete 180-degree shift from how things were being carried out during the previous administration. When we understand the role that our law enforcement plays in our culture, we understand the vitality for every one of them. Paul Harvey does an outstanding job describing the intricate details of what it’s like to carry out this lifestyle. Honor and respect is not something that should be given only at certain times. It is what God calls us to render at all times. As Romans 13:6-7 shares, “This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.” See more, related content and articles for this article. Sweeping changes in the Veterans Affairs Office to Accelerate and Modernize access to Medical Records for Veterans-Trump administration standing with those who are standing with Americans for our Safety and Liberty As the President recently signed a bill into law that would help law enforcement and their families receive the needed benefits they deserve, he also signed a bill that would help veterans. This bill helps those veterans transitioning into civilian life to begin a new career in law enforcement. It is the American Law Enforcement Heroes Act. As the President continues to describe, “the American Law Enforcement Heroes Act allows the use of federal grants to help our military veterans transition to new careers in law enforcement.” The President does an outstanding job using this opportunity to express his personal appreciation and condolences to the many men and women in our armed forces that are serving all around the globe to protect our way of life. “We love our veterans, and they're serving overseas, they're in harm's way, and they are doing things that very few people would have the courage to do, and we will be and always will be incredibly proud to have them with us, and they've been with us like nobody, and we are going to be protecting them. They've been protecting us. We're going to be helping them right now. They've really been with us, in terms of freedom, in terms of our rights, and we're right now, in terms of their rights.” The President has continually been outspoken regarding our service members because he understands the top priority of keeping our nation safe and the citizens within its borders safe. “As president, keeping Americans safe is my highest duty, and supporting law enforcement is my unwavering commitment.” It is good to see our President standing behind our military and those that are electing to transition out of the military. For some, transitioning out of the military life can be the hardest part. Transitioning back into the civilian world can be a greater culture shock than the transitioning of seeing a war zone. One comes after months and months of intensive training, classes, and culture preparation. While the other can only be realized in the reality of itself. No matter how much you tell yourself “you’re getting out”, the difficulties can’t be realized until they come. It's important to understand that one cannot expect to understand what a veteran is going through, transitioning back into civilian life, if we have not experienced the same reality, or if we are not willing to listen. Veterans Health Administration captures this paradigm as they show multiple veterans expressing the hallmark response to someone asking how they’re transition is going. “I’m good”. When we truly begin to demonstrate a caring and empathetic ear will we begin to hear the responses that reveal the rawness of their hearts? “I’m good. But I don’t feel anything anymore.”; “but nobody understands”; “but I don’t even know who I am anymore”. This was true for Steve Kaliszewski. After he served two combat deployments with the Marines, he only had a few short weeks left until his enlistment contract was over. Suddenly, he found himself in an entirely new city, trying to begin a new life. It seemed as if his life viciously crashed onto the rocks of despair, until God stepped in. Steve shares his story of how the transition back to civilian life was more than he could navigate and that his only refuge came when he cried out to Jesus. His story is one that you’ll want to share with every family member or friend that is in the military and thinking about getting out, or the veteran that still struggles within civilian life, whether they finished their service last week, or twenty years ago. See the full report of how President Trump is defending our law enforcement, as well as our servicemembers and veterans, how we can have empathy and understanding for all of those who serve, for those who are beginning to navigate a new life as a civilian, and so much more.

Venezuela is in a food crisis; Philippines are eating second hand food; and Gratitude

June 6, 2017

Venezuela is in a food crisis; Philippines are eating second hand food; and Gratitude In America, we have so many blessings and resources at our fingertips that, if not careful, we can quickly take for granted what has been given to us in this blessed land. By looking at what is happening in the nations around the world, we are quickly reminded of this reality. For example, Venezuela’s economy is in catastrophic free fall. Right now, a basket of groceries, not a basket that you push, but a basket that you carry, is four times the monthly income of what many earn. As CNN Money shares, “Venezuela's socialist government, led by President Nicolas Maduro, raised the minimum wage 60% on Sunday to 200,021 bolivares ($45) a month, including food stamps.” The problem with this increase in income is that is falls devastatingly short of the cost for basic items, like food. “In March, a basket of basic grocery items -- including eggs, milk and fruit -- cost 772,614 bolivares, or close to four times the monthly minimum wage…” As a result, riots are clashing with leadership in Venezuela. “On Tuesday, Maduro suspended Venezuelans' right to carry firearms as weeks of anti-government protests stretch into the spring.” If the rising costs aren’t enough of an uphill battle to overcome, it’s the lack of food. “Last year, the average Venezuelan living in extreme poverty lost about 19 pounds due to the lack of food.” As previously stated, the minimum wage was increased by 60%. Sadly enough, this didn’t make a dent on the reality for those needing to buy basic food items because of the weakening Venezuelan currency. “…inflation is expected to rise 720% this year and over 2,000% next year, according to the IMF. One bolivar is worth less than one cent.” This is an important paradigm to understand. Only a few short months ago, we had a Presidential Candidate who ran on the platform of establishing a Socialistic form of government; the government would provide everything for you. Venezuela is demonstrating to the world that this approach to government simply does not work. We cannot buy into this pattern of thought and believe that we should no longer work and expect the government to provide for us. We cannot take our ability to work for granted. We are blessed in America to have the amount of choices that we have. The blessings that we do have should not be primarily used on ourselves, but to be a blessing to others. But, what is happening in Venezuela goes a step further. There are certain areas within the Philippines where people would consider it a blessing to simply be able to buy any type of food for themselves. Instead, they are willing to buy the leftover food that someone else has thrown away. It’s called ‘Pag Pag’, and many are grateful for it as it is the only food they must feed their families. In Tondo, Manila, people spend their days looking for food with enough meat left on the bones, to eat for themselves. Others take the time to find pag pag, clean and wash it, and sell it to others. As one woman describes, “selling pag pag is how I support my family”. As she was initially apprehensive of starting to sell pag pag because of the possibility of getting sick from it, others encouraged her. “They convinced me that as long as I wash it well and if I recook it, then it would be all right.” After a full day of selling pag pag, then she can buy food for her family; water and rice. Another woman describes how important it is to wash pag pag to keep from getting sick. Afterwards, there are certain ways to cook it. “You need to boil pag pag before you recook it because pag pag is another person’s leftovers. It’s been through other people’s mouths. The leftovers have been mixed with other food wastes and rubbish.” This is heartbreaking. We cannot take for granted all that has been given to us. We cannot horde what God allows us to have. We will be held accountable for all that He has given us. How often do we find ourselves complaining about not being able to find the one food item in the grocery store because there are so many aisles? When one particular woman visited America, she decided to bring back a few souvenirs for her family and friends. What she brought back will shock you! She took food advertisements to show other people the food that is available in America. Psalm 100:4 reminds us of how we are to walk out each day, “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” We will find ourselves complaining much less when we start with gratitude. Instead of counting our hardships with a calculator, and our blessings with our fingers, it should be the other way around. When we begin our day with gratitude, we are reminding ourselves that we are not the ones providing for us, but it is by the Hand of the Lord that we are afforded the blessings that we have. To know what God wants to do with the resources that He has blessed us with, we must know His voice. Abiding is that daily exchange with the Lord; hearing His voice, knowing His voice, and obeying His voice. Take this time to see the full story of what is happening in nations around the world as you get a perspective for all the blessings that you have been provided with, and so much more.

A Global World Summit; Elon Musk talking about massive unemployment; and UN Agenda 2030

May 30, 2017

A Global World Summit; Elon Musk talking about massive unemployment; and UN Agenda 2030 Have you ever been going about your day with your own intentions and plans for how your day was supposed to go and then everything got interrupted and all of your plans changed? The world is about to be interrupted! As Elon Musk, Founder of SpaceX, met with world leaders at the World Government Summit, he shared some startling coming changes to the world regarding new technological developments in the areas of driverless cars. As Musk was asked about what is next in the technological realm that will greatly impact how we live our lives, he takes a deep breath to consider the reality of this question. Then he’s interrupted with the clarity of the question, “…that will disturb the way we live, the way we think, the way we do business?” As Musk points out, it’s autonomous cars. “That is going to happen much faster than people realize.” Granted, this will be a welcomed comfort to many of those throughout the population, but what about those who make their living behind the wheel? As he further continues, “In fact, I think it might be the single largest employer of people, is driving in various forms.” Musk begins to describe the timeline in which driverless cars will establish itself in our day to day lives. “There are over two billion vehicles in the world…the total new vehicle production capacity is about 100 million”. It won’t be exactly overnight, but his following words begin to make sense when we take these numbers into consideration. “So the point at which we see full autonomy appear, will not be at which there is massive societal upheaval, because it will take a long time to make enough autonomous vehicles to disrupt employment”. Based on Musk’s predictions, this will take about 20 years. Imagine not having your car. In many populated urban areas, many people have never had a car because there is no need for a car. But, for most Americans that live far away from work, this will all be changing. The very infrastructure that we rely on, for example cell towers, used to communicate daily, is all changing. According to Business Insider, [Elon Musk] “asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for permission to launch 4,425 internet-providing satellites.” Instead of relying on cell phone towers to establish the signals we need for our phone calls, there will be low flying satellites that will provide much greater signal coverage. These are major changes that we cannot blink at as they will massively effect how we live our daily lives.

Massive Unemployment Coming- Robots and Computers will take over and do a better job, says Elon Musk These truly are amazing days. When we look at the continual advancements of technology taking place all throughout the world, it is clear to recognize that we are getting close to the end. As we look at Elon Musk’s recent comments, at the World Government Summit, on the coming changes to our world, most people have no idea many of these developments are already in the works. What people do not consider about new technology, is the human labor that it replaces. More specifically, unemployment. As Musk talks about the overwhelming arrival of “mass unemployment”, he projects his own possibilities of what will be the answer. “I think, ultimately, we will have to have some kind of universal base of income. I don’t think we’re going to have a choice.” As Musk continues to describe, he addresses the capabilities of robots in the workforce. “There will be fewer and fewer jobs that a robot cannot do better.” Think about what this implies. Imagine having robot systems that go beyond the awareness of intelligence and now have the ability of rapidly learning on their own. At the onset, new technology looks very appealing, but what about the end result? When we see someone trying to replace your job, they are taking away the empowerment of the value of hard work. Most men find their value in their jobs. God made us to produce and have fruitful lives. Can you imagine millions of people doing absolutely nothing and being consumed with idleness? These are such important days that we are living in. It takes wisdom and much guidance from the Lord to know how to navigate the times and seasons that we are living in.

We are Cyborgs already-part machine part human, Elon Musk at World Government Summit in Dubai With the present level of technological advancements in our culture, we are entering a new realm of what is real and what is not. We are now beginning to realize that we will soon be confronted with the shocking question: what is robot, and what is human? When Elon Musk recently spoke at the World Government Summit, he shared about how these two are merging closer and closer together. As Musk more specifically describes, “…merger with biological intelligence and machine intelligence”. According to Musk, “to some degree, we are already a cyborg”. He points to the amount of technology that we are dependent upon each day that we live. We carry our cell phones, laptops, and tablets with us everywhere we go. When we have a question, we do a quick search on our computer for the answers that we need. Musk calls this the ‘digital tertiary layer’. With the continual advancements of technology, he highlights how output is steadily increasing. But, for us humans, the curve has been in the opposite direction. With the implementation of smart phones in most of the world, we have transitioned from keyboards to now using only our thumbs. “A computer can communicate at a billion bits per second. But, your thumb can maybe do 10 bits/second, or 100 if you’re being generous.” Considering this dynamic difference between computer and human, Musk reveals what he really sees coming in the days ahead. “So, some high bandwidth interface to the brain, I think, will be something that helps achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence, and maybe solves the control problem and the usefulness problem.” Reportedly, Ray Kurzweil is already working on a brain cortex that connects to the internet. Instead of having to type our search queries into Google, we will simply be able to think what we are searching for. Considering the application of all of these technologies, Greg Lancaster received a prophetic dream. In this night vision, he was in a large office that were full of cubicles. No one was allowed to talk, but each person had a whiteboard to use for communications. Everyone was entering massive amounts of information into their computers. As Greg looked around at all that was happening, he stood up and began to write these words on his whiteboard, “This is the number of the beast and his number is 666.” This is the very reality of what is written in Revelation 13:16-18, “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” We must seek wisdom from the Lord in order to navigate the days that we are living in. See the full discussion about the observations from Elon Musk, and so much more.

United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals for the World bypassing the Sovereignty of Nations There was a day when the thought of 2030 was beyond the comprehension of thought. Today it is only a few years away from being the days that we will be living in. Leaders from around the globe are discussing their ‘sustainability’ visions for 2030. President Trump discussed the very topic of Saudi Arabia’s vision for 2030 in his recent trip to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The United Nations has already established their 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and published it for all to see. They are simply trying to achieve sustainability outside of God. As their Agenda states, it “is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity.” They continue to address income inequality. “We will seek to build strong economic foundations for all our countries. Sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth is essential for prosperity. This will only be possible if wealth is shared and income inequality is addressed.” The truth of the matter is that a high percentage of wealth in the world is in America. Elon Musk talked about a “universal base of income” when he spoke at the World Government Summit. The problem is when this idea of spreading income equality is done in the name of the beast, as described in Revelation 13:16-18. We must wake up. This is really happening. Here are just some of the goals that the UN includes in their 2030 Vision Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages Goal 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls Goal 6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all Goal 7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all So, the question is: who is the United Nations? This organization has no control over your country. During the previous administration, former President Barack Obama thought the idea of giving up freedoms was better for our security. More specifically, he said during a speech at the United Nations, “…I am convinced that in the long run giving up some freedom of action…binding ourselves to international rules, over the long term, enhances our security.” This must be undone. This is how important President Trump is. These are vital realities that we must all be aware and mindful of as more and more ideas and visions are being cast before societies. What may appear appealing at the onset, must not overshadow how things can result at the end. See the full report of what is taking place at the United Nations, and so much more.

The Network is being laid for a Global Brain as early as 2018: Rick Wiles Reports from the Mobile World Congress When we think of AI, artificial intelligence, sometimes we can think of technology in the distant future, or a sci-fi movie that depicts the possibilities. But, do we ever consider how AI has already begun to become a part of our culture and society? Multiple sources have already begun the conversation about the Internet of Things, IoT. Or what about Watson, the self-contained operating system that beat the best Jeopardy contestant with no input from a human being? With more and more technologies being introduced, striving for perfection, we are forgetting the reality that God is in love with the flawed vessels of human beings. Only God is perfect. Once machines take over, it’s all gone. When Rick Wiles recently attended the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, he spoke about increasing abilities of technology and how it will affect every way of life. “The mobile phone industry is the backbone of the global brain that is being put together”. When people talk about the technology of ‘the cloud’, it’s not exactly in a cloud somewhere, but into a database. All our information, where we are, who we are with, what we purchase is all being entered. The mobile phone has gone through such tremendous advancements over the recent years, it’s hard to imagine your daily routine without it. Wiles continues to share more insight from what was shared at this event in Barcelona. “The mobile phone industry has been tapped by the Globalists to connect the world to this global brain.” Presently, we hear more and more about the 4G technology that our cell phones work off. But, there is a coming shift to 5G technology. In order for 5G to be rolled out, there needs to be new infrastructure. 5G cannot run on the existing cell phone towers that 4G runs off. AT&T and iHeart Radio has sold their existing towers. So now what? Elon Musk has already requested that the FCC authorize 4,425 internet-providing satellites, according to Business Insider. Instead of a phone connected to a tower, the signal will come from low-flying satellites. A major disruption to how we carry out our daily lives is coming. Those in the world of technology world gather that technology is no longer slowing us down. It is we, humans, that are slowing down life. As Elon Musk elaborated at the World Government Summit, our thumbs move too slow. Wiles further points out, “when you see 5G rolled out, then you’re going to see the global brain rolled out.” We must be willing to be who we are and trust that God will back us up. The Last Days are already here. This is that. There is a moment that Jesus is returning for His Church. If you haven’t made a decision to make Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior, then He won’t be coming back for you. These are the moments that call for wisdom that we must heed with humility and guidance from the Lord. See the full discussion and hear the full report from Rick Wiles, and so much more.

A Look at the International Tour by President Trump; NATO Speech; and Prophetic Word of News Anchors

May 30, 2017

A Look at the International Tour by President Trump; NATO Speech; and Prophetic Word of News Anchors falling? It has been such an exciting opportunity to cover President Trump’s first international trip as he travelled to Riyadh, Saudi to speak to 50 Arab and Muslim countries and encouraged this region of the world to do their part to fight against the extremism of terrorism. He was the first President to travel to Israel on his first international trip and the first acting President to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem, Israel. He visited Rome to meet Pope Francis at Vatican City and met with leaders throughout Europe at the NATO Summit in Brussels and G7 Summit in Italy. This is encouraging. He is doing exactly what he said that he would do during his campaign travels and speeches. We need to pray for our President and his Cabinet. See the full comments from the President as he overviews his first international trip, and so much more. Also, shared in this segment: Saudi Arabia, President Trump, The White House, G7 Summit, and hope. Greg shared in this segment. See more, related content and articles for this article. President Trump stands Up for the U.S. Tax Payer Who Funds 70% of NATO and tells NATO Countries they must pay their bills As President Trump neared the close of his first international trip, he was present at the NATO summit and met with many European leaders to discuss many important matters. He also took time to spend with Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzō Abe, after the Summit. President Trump was quick to share about what they would be focusing on during their time together. We'll be discussing terrorism, but I think we will really be, in particular, focused on the North Korean problem. It's a big problem, it's a world problem, and it will be solved. At some point, it will be solved. You can bet on that. Prime Minster Abe shared his encouragement of the President’s recent trip to the Middle East and their time during the Summit. “I'd like to congratulate you on your successful visit to the Middle East region, as well as your participation in the NATO summit. And through your visit, I understand that you have demonstrated robust commitment to ensuring global security. And I highly value your commitment.” Prime Minister Abe continued to speak on the long-standing partnership between our two nations. “I would like to reconfirm our close partnership, as well as collaboration, in addressing those of the challenges.” It’s important to remember that our two nations were once enemies, but we are now close allies. Japan’s military is America’s military. We closely protect Japan. It is such an encouraging moment to see these two leaders closely collaborating about the now issues. As the President spoke about vital issues with Prime Minister Abe, he also spoke at the recent NATO Summit about the importance of all members paying their due costs for defense spending. NATO is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and is made up of 28 members focusing mainly in Europe and North America. As CBNC International explains, “Each member of NATO has an equal say in discussions and decisions.” What is additionally important to understand is the recourse of action if any of these 28 members were to find themselves in war. According to Article 5, “It states that an attack on one country is, in theory, an attack against all members”. Essentially, every member is there for one another during a time of war as all members contribute a minimum of 2% of their GDP towards the Alliance’s defense spending. As CNBC International continues, “that target is rarely met. In 2015, the median spend was just 1.18%. The United States spent a whopping 3.7%. That means that America accounted for some 70% of the alliance's total defense spending and it is only one of 5 countries to spend more than 2%.” There has been controversy towards President Trump’s stance on NATO. “During his Presidential election campaign, Donald Trump threatened to pull out of the treaty, calling it 'obsolete.' He also said the U.S. would only help countries that paid their fair share.” This is a crucial background to understand as President Trump addressed this topic at the recent 2017 G7 Summit. As President Trump takes a moment of silence to remember the horrific events of evil that just took place in Manchester, he stands alongside twisted pieces of metal from the North Towers in New York City during the 9/11 Terrorist attack, and pieces of the Berlin Wall. He also spoke on his recent trip to Saudi Arabia and the urgency to combat extremism and terrorism. With these tragedies near in our hearts and minds, President Trump underscores the urgency of defense readiness, and to do so there must be legitimate funding where it is needed. “These grave security concerns are the same reason that I have been very, very direct with Secretary Stoltenberg and members of the Alliance in saying that NATO members must finally contribute their fair share and meet their financial obligations, for 23 of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they're supposed to be paying for their defense.” President Trump fully understands that America’s repeated funding above and beyond the prescribed 2% of GDP, simply is not fair to those who are fronting that bill; the American taxpayer. “Over the last eight years, the United States spent more on defense than all other NATO countries combined.” It would be a massively different story if every member met the 2% GDP expectation. “If all NATO members had spent just 2 percent of their GDP on defense last year, we would have had another $119 billion for our collective defense and for the financing of additional NATO reserves.” The President continues to underscore this very pressing, and urgent issue. “Two percent is the bare minimum for confronting today's very real and very vicious threats. If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism.” It is refreshing to see the President taking such a bold and open stance amongst so many international leaders.

Governor of Texas Signs Sermon Safeguard Bill Protecting Pastors from being forced to provide their sermons to the Government Can you imagine, as a pastor, being ordered by the government to turn in your sermons? That actually happened in the state of Texas. While the shocking realities of what took place cannot be undone, Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott is taking actions so that it doesn’t happen again. As the Christian Post is reporting, Governor Abbot signed Senate Bill 24 into law, also known as 'Sermon Safeguard Bill'. "Efforts to erode religious liberty are a threat to all liberty, and our religious leaders must be absolutely secure in the knowledge that religious freedom is beyond the reach of government”, said Governor Abbott the issue. We must be aware of when our Constitutional rights are being infringed and recognize when actions are being made to protect them.

Greg Lancaster shares Anchors Away Prophecy with Christian Television Managers from across the United States and around the World! We are witnessing many encouraging things happening as the hand of God is moving in our midst. Of all the places that the CTN Managers could have gathered, they came together in the Gulf Coast at the very same studio where VFNtv is broadcast. It was during this divine encounter that the VFNtv crew welcomed and served each of the CTN Managers as they were gathered together for a luncheon. WHBR’s station manager, David Mayo, asked Greg Lancaster to prophesy over the CTN Managers. Greg Lancaster shared the powerful prophetic word that was shared with him during a time of seeking the Lord. As Greg spoke to a room full of leaders in the Media Mountain, he shares a prophetic word from the Lord that “news anchors will be shaken as they report perilous upcoming world events – some will be shaken overboard.” God was revealing that news anchors would begin to fall, and be replaced by the Lord’s anchors. “These anchormen and anchorwomen will come forth from deep waters of the unknown. They will not only report the perilous news but will have the treasures and riches of Christ inside of them…” At the time, that seemed unthinkable to imagine news anchors falling. But, as time has progressed, this is exactly what has taken place. George Stephanopoulos fell, Brian Williams left the NBC Nightly News. The very same day that this prophetic word was delivered to the CTN Managers, Roger Ailes, the founder of FOX News, literally fell at his home and died. Bill O’Reilly, Greta Van Sustern, Elizabeth Hasselback, Gretchen Carson, and Megyn Kelly were other prominent anchors that have been removed or chose to leave their positions. Greg Lancaster also shared a prophetic word from Bill Yount as he declared the Word of the Lord. “I Will Begin to Redeem the Media and Airwaves In 2017” He continues to share more about this powerful word as was spoken to him from Bill Yount. “The time has come to redeem the airwaves covering the Earth and begin to impact the media to become a conduit to pour out My Spirit upon all flesh!” When Bill Yount received this powerful prophetic word from the Lord, he was given an exciting vision. “I then saw angels begin to anoint satellite stations and dishes above the Earth. And on the Earth angels were descending upon huge television and radio towers. Great heavenly broadcasting interference was about to come upon the Earth.” This is going to be an exciting time for those in ministry. “Divine favor was being given to many ministries with the media this coming year of 2017 to go nationwide and worldwide.” Considering how God was going to touch and use these ministries throughout media, those who are presently sharing the world’s perspective of media are going to take notice. “News reporters were beginning to lean towards unusual stories of awesome happenings, that were leaving their listeners spellbound with the idea – “There must be a God in Heaven!”” As we can see at the time of this prophetic word being delivered, there would be a coming shift in the media that was being broadcasted throughout the world. It is so encouraging to know all that the Lord is doing and shifting the world so that the Gospel can be shared to all the nations.

President Trump honors Fallen Soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery; and the True Meaning of Memor

May 30, 2017

President Trump honors Fallen Soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery; and the True Meaning of Memorial Day It is such an important and vital moment to remember the significance of Memorial Day. The freedoms that are offered and allowed to be carried out each and every day in America are not free. There is a cost. The cost is the lives of the many men and women service members in our Armed Forces that gave their lives in defense of our nation so that our freedoms would not be lost. This is the moment that we remember their lives. We remember their sacrifices and we are grateful for each and every one of them. Since President Trump has taken office in the White House, he has consistently expressed his gratitude for our nation’s military and his support for all of those that serve in all of our Armed Forces. During this year’s Memorial Day, President Trump visited Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. All eyes were fixated on the President as he stood with his hands resting on the wreath and stood motionless absorbing this important moment. As military members, dressed in their proper uniforms rendered salutes, and civilians rested their right hands on their hearts, the somber tune of taps began to play. As the President continued to keep his eyes fixed on the wreath, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the thoughts of the countless men and women who laid their lives down, he later shared his heart and deep gratitude as he spoke at the Arlington National Cemetery Amphitheatre. “Thank you for joining us as we honor the brave warriors who gave their lives for ours, spending their last moments on this Earth in defense of this country and of its people. Words cannot measure the depth of their devotion, the purity of their love, or the totality of their courage.” For those who fought for our nation, or those who have a relative or friend who fought for our nation, they understand that Memorial Day is more than a day, it is a constant reminder, a daily reminder to remember those who gave up their lives. We also must remember the many family members and friends that continually carry the memories of those that willfully gave up their lives. Families that carry the loss of a family member are known as “Gold Star Families” and President Trump spoke directly to them as he shared his heart. “To every Gold Star family who honors us with your presence, you lost sons and daughters, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers. They each had their own names, their own stories, their own beautiful dreams. But they were all angels sent to us by God, and they all share one title in common -- and that is the title of hero. As the President continues, he marks the significance of honoring those who fought for our country for the simple opportunity to serve, and nothing else. “Here at this hallowed shrine, we honor the noblest among us -- the men and women who paid the ultimate price for victory and for freedom. We pay tribute to those brave souls who raced into gunfire, roared into battle, and ran into hell to face down evil. They made their sacrifice not for fame, or for money, or even for glory -- but for country.” Understanding that the cost of serving in our nation’s military has remained the same, regardless of what generation was called upon to serve, the President highlights how every life that has served matters to our country. “Since the first volley of gunfire in the Revolution, brave Americans in every generation have answered the call of duty and won victory for freedom in its hour of need. Today, a new generation of American patriots are fighting to win the battle against terrorism -- risking their lives to protect our citizens from an enemy that uses the murder of innocents to wage war on humanity itself.” Understanding that the cost is still being paid in our generation, the President shares about many of the stories of these service members, some of those who were among the crowds, some retired from their careers in the military, and some of those whose wives spoke about their deep love and sacrifice for their country. As a former Marine, Steve Kaliszewski understands the tragedies of war. He served two combat deployments to Fallujah, Iraq and lost many close brothers that he served with. He shares how Memorial Day is more than a day to celebrate with a picnic, or to have a day off from work. As he also points out, Memorial Day is not the same as Veteran’s Day. Veteran’s Day celebrates our Veterans who paid with their service, while Memorial Day remembers those who paid with their lives. Some people may not understand why a Veteran doesn’t respond with a smile on their face as someone excitedly says, “Happy Memorial Day”. With this in mind, they may have a better understanding as to why. When we look at the overwhelming sights of Arlington National Cemetery, and cemeteries around the nation, we can be taken in by the many white headstones and not connect the reality that each of those headstones represent someone’s father, a brother, a son, a mother, or a sister. Without a story of who these amazing people are, we can easily disconnect from the weight of this precious moment. There are many stories that Steve could have shared, but one always comes to mind. Steve remembers Deal, aka “Doc”, or as his family knows him, Lee Hamilton Deal, always being the one that was sharing a joke, even when receiving enemy fire. Deal was the kind of guy that always had you rolling. While on a nighttime gun range, Steve remembers Deal sharing a story from his days as a kicker with LSU's football team. When attending a certain sports game, his name was elected to win the grand prize of kicking the ball through the goal posts. The crowd was cheering until he was about to approach the ball. When they suddenly realized who it was, they told him he didn’t quality and couldn’t kick the ball. When it was Steve’s team that was out on operations, carrying out patrols, it would often be Deal that was back at the Command Center receiving reports on the team’s activity. Little did they know that upon receiving intelligence, the whole platoon would move together to an objective. It was on this objective that Deal was killed as he was shot from enemy gunfire. When Steve heard Deal’s information over the radio, he knew the tragic reality that had taken place. Another team member dragged Deal off the objective as the location was cleared. Steve remembers the green images of picking up Deal and carrying him off the objective as he followed his eyes, as his night vision allowed him to see, and laid Deal on the hood of a Humvee. Steve had no idea that this was the last moment that he would see Deal. The realities of Memorial Day weigh much heavier upon us when these stories become personal and close to our hearts. When we look across the rolling hills of Arlington National Cemetery, each of the headstones begin to have new meaning for us. In our current generation, those that are killed while in combat are buried in Section 60 of Arlington, unless families dictate otherwise. If the sight of Arlington is not somber enough, it is visiting the same location a few years later and seeing the indescribable sight of the number of rows of new plots that have been added in such a short amount of time, highlighting the undeniable cost of freedom. As we remember those precious men and women on Memorial Day, the bugle call of Taps brings new meaning to all of us. We thank God for everyone who served our country and paid the ultimate sacrifice. Our hearts and prayers go out to every Gold Star Family. See the full story of this important day, and so much more.
