I was horrified to read the following post and also thankful Yahweh is exposing things like this and raising up righteous men and women to sound the alarm and fight for our children. Be aware of what the Equality Act really is…Mat Staver, Liberty Action Council, is telling the truth in the article below. He is working to expose the evil agenda’s hidden in this bill. They have a petition you can sign even if you don’t donate.
Florida parents accidentally found out the school had been referring to their daughter as a boy, with a fake boy’s name and male pronouns—without asking their permission or informing them! These parents are fighting to hold this school accountable and to give their daughter the help she needs to successfully navigate through this time. My legal team is getting involved.
But if the misnamed “Equality Act” gets one more vote, it could pass. The love and care of parents will be deemed hate, even abuse, and will be grounds to remove a child from the home. This bill will drastically change the parent-child relationship.
This bill needs just one senator—or a clandestine late-hour voice vote—to pass any time the floor is open. So far, we have stopped the bill. We can win if we continue to fight. Send your urgent fax to the Senate to stop the “Equality Act” from endangering our kids. — Mat
This is a nightmare. Schools nationwide are surreptitiously indoctrinating kids in LGBTQ ideology.
One day the parents received a letter from the teacher about “Theodore” in which their daughter was referred to as “he.” Schools are not allowed to give an aspirin without parental consent, but when it comes to this harmful LGBTQ agenda, some school officials think they know best and that parents should be kept in the dark.
When the parents confronted this teacher, they received an insulting, in-your-face email doubling down on the idea that she, not the parents, knows best for their daughter.
Parents, not the state, have the right to direct the upbringing of their children. But if the “Equality Act” passes, it will force all schools to refer to kids by a long list of so-called made-up pronouns, including zie, per, ve, xe, (f)oe—and hundreds more.
We can defeat this bill. If we block it now, it will help prevent unimagined pain by preventing the permanent sterilization of these innocent children. Make no mistake, innocent children are being led to believe they can choose their gender from hundreds of options. HR 5 will mandate even unwilling teachers and schools to comply with this LGBTQ nonsense.
This is why I’m asking for you to act now and fax the Senate to oppose this outrageous bill—and protect your family’s freedom.
click the picture to sign the petition, you do not have to donate to sign the petition, but consider their work as a good ground to sow seed.
Desperate parents with no place to turn are contacting us for help. I cannot imagine what life would be like under HR 5. Children are in danger of becoming casualties. Parents could lose their precious children. This nightmare scenario is becoming more and more common as the LGBTQ agenda steamrolls through our culture.
We have seen nothing yet if HR 5 passes.
If the Equality Act passes, caring for your child and not being willing to bow to the LGBTQ agenda will be considered child abuse. We have already seen parents being accused of abuse for refusing to call their daughter a boy or refusing to authorize hormone blockers and surgery.
It is a sad state when a father, nearly in tears, has to beg a school board to prevent a teacher from lying to his 12-year-old daughter and treating her as a boy while fostering delusions about her sexuality.
You can help turn the tide and STOP this bill from becoming law with your fax to the Senate today. The LGBTQ agenda includes abolishing the idea that you are either male or female. They want schools to be the incubator and facilitator of this harmful thinking. But parents are in their way. HR 5 will ensure parents are no longer a threat to their goal.
HR 5 will also censor books and true stories of people who have changed and are free from the LGBTQ chains. And counseling and counselors to help people achieve freedom will be silenced.
Many people, including children, have amputated healthy body parts, and then regretted their decision. About 40% of those who have undergone mutilating surgery commit suicide.
The Equality Act would end hope for these children and others who are confused or struggling. Help stop this bill on the Senate floor right now with your fax. This heart-wrenching attack targeting loving parents is why I ask you to consider a generous gift to help Liberty Counsel Action today. We can only fight to defend your family’s freedom on Capitol Hill because of your support. Join our Challenge Grant that will DOUBLE the impact of your gift. Please consider giving a monthly recurring donation or a one-time gift today … because we can’t fight effectively without friends like you!
Thank you for partnering with us in defense of life, family and freedom!

Americans Rise, Sing And Honor Our Nation And our Flag
What a refreshing and thrilling moment
And As For Me And My House
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office Yahweh has called me into, which I am about to enter: So help me God, in the Name of Yahshua/Jesus. Amen
Our country’s observance of a national Memorial Day began on May 30, 1868. It was then called Decoration Day and was commemorated at Arlington National Cemetery by volunteers decorating the graves of more than 20,000 Confederate and Union soldiers. The tradition of placing flags on the graves of soldiers continues to this day.
Decoration Day was renamed Memorial Day during WWII and proclaimed to be a day to honor all Americans who died in military service. In 1971, Memorial Day became a nation holiday by congressional order.
Is Memorial Day in the Bible?
The actual set-apart day that we observe is not there, but days of remembrance are ordained by God throughout Scripture. Beginning with the ordination of a day of rest (the Sabbath, Ex 20:8), including all the feast days (Leviticus), and a command to remember the Lord’s death, burial, and resurrection. Therefore, memorial days are certainly a biblical mandate. In addition, the Bible teaches that every day is meant to be a day of remembrance.
Remembering past events and places, those who have gone before us in the faith, and, most importantly, our God and His will and ways, is important to living our daily lives. On Memorial Day we remember those who have served our country, but we should also remember, and give thanks daily, to all who serve us personally. Christians are called to a lifestyle of giving and receiving, of serving and being served — and it starts with remembering what God has done for us. God sacrificially sent His Son to an undeserving world, to live and die for us, so we could be made worthy to receive His gift of eternal life.
Rightly Remember the Past to Direct the Future
It’s not just about remembering the past. It must be about rightly remembering the past. What does that mean? It means remembering with a mind renewed by God’s Word.
In 2012, I published a book about remembering, titled Why the Butterfly? A Book About Remembering. Why the butterfly? Because a butterfly is a symbol of regeneration from death to life, and of transformation from being earthbound to having “wings to fly” in newness of life.
Why is the book about remembering? Because forgetting always precedes falling. Because rightly remembering influences our thoughts. And because our lives move in the direction of our most dominant thoughts. We all know people who remember that which they should forget and forget that which they should remember. Rightly remembering is taking captive past memories in a way that grow us and conform us to the image of Jesus.
The Bible Calls Us to Rightly Remember

Honoring Those Who Served Our Country
Watch our most popular video. With millions of watches on YouTube and thousands of comments, this video has touched the hearts of people around the world, causing them to remember those who gave their all so we can be free. And when we remember their sacrifices, we can’t help but remember the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus. John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Here is an article from Dr. Michael Brown concerning an issue I believe should be shouted from the rooftops. In the midst of all the attempts to transform America from a “land of the free and the brave” a renegade spirit ravages across our Nation mutilating the reality at the core of who we are as human beings.
Scientific fact seems to have been transformed into a best selling horror movie touting, you can be whatever you want to be, with no ill effects. Does that sound like the truth?
No, but you see, we are no longer talking about truth, we are talking about deception, a form of truth, but not the truth. Will a form of the truth make you happy? Probably not for very long, because truth has a way of haunting a fantasy.
An example of this fantasy is shown here with a man who was obsessed with being a cat, before and after pictures.
The reality of the fantasy is, though he had a form of what he thought he wanted, in the end, he blew his brains out and committed suicide.
In today’s world compassionate people are quick to tell you, be what you want to be, without understanding the consequences of trying to be something you are not able to be, according to science. I detest those who have invaded our medical and governmental systems and are preying on children, who according to science, have brains, which are not considered to be fully mature until they are twenty.
Interesting to note, in Numbers 14:29, even Yahweh did not hold people accountable, until they were “twenty.” Selah!
You will all drop dead in this wilderness! Because you complained against me, every one of you who is twenty years old or older and was included in the registration will die.
The people who are nullifying the legal authority of parents and their protective rights over their children, to allow children (with their help) to make decisions, which will effect them for the rest of their life unto the grave, should not have this kind of legal authority. Even if these children were wards of State, these procedures are not life threatening medical emergencies and these children are MINORS under the law and in the eyes of our Creator God Yahweh!
On another note, these predators are pushing their own agenda’s, supplying the money and surgical procedures to provide synthetic hormones and mutilating surgery on children’s bodies. Where is this money coming from and at the least, should not the court systems uphold the rights of the parents, until the child is fully capable of making a life changing decisions such as this, on their own, as an ADULT?
I have questions and you should too, whether you have children or not.
Dr. Michael Brown is addressing this issue of parental rights in the article below and highlights the case of a parent who is fighting in Canada to call his daughter, “his daughter.” He is now in jail. Think this can’t happen here, think again.
The enemy of our souls is keen to lead people into believing a lie to be the truth, but whether you are a man who wants to be a cat, or a boy or girl who wants to be the opposite, it is a lie to tell anyone, hormones, surgery, or implants can make you something you are not. This is deception at its best and it is cruel and dangerous for anyone to take part in this type of mental cruelty and abuse, especially regarding children.
May Yahweh help us to speak truth and light with love into this darkening world. Spread the truth, expose the lies and Stand for Truth!
Rise Up Church!!
This Is Child Abuse and Madness, and It Must Stop
10:00AM EDT 3/19/2021 MICHAEL BROWN
There are so many pressing issues in America today, from bills under discussion in Congress to the fears of Asian Americans in light of increasing hatred and violence. There are international issues demanding our attention, including the upcoming Israeli elections and the current conflict between Biden and Putin.
I would rather comment on any of these subjects than the subject of this article. Yet those other issues will have to wait one more day. This week’s outrages are just too outrageous. We must speak out again.
This week, a Canadian father, Robert Hoogland, was jailed for the crime of referring to his 14-year-old daughter as his daughter. That’s right. Because this concerned father referred to his daughter as female, thereby violating a court order, he has been arrested and put behind bars.
You say, “Obviously, there’s something missing from this story. Did he abduct her? Is she not really his daughter? What else happened?”
In reality, the story is worse than you can imagine.
A few years ago, Hoogland (whom I met and with whom I discussed the situation) learned that his daughter’s school had been pushing her in the direction of male identity, claiming she suffered from gender dysphoria.
They even changed her name in the school yearbook without informing the parents, encouraging her to get on hormones and to work towards sex-change surgery.
The girl’s mother sided with the daughter, but Hoogland opposed the decision. After all, she was a young teen and hardly capable of making such life-altering decisions.
The court sided with the daughter, forbidding her father from trying to impede her gender transition.
But that was only the beginning of the story. The court then forbade him from referring to his own daughter as “she.” Or using her real (female) name. Or speaking of her as his “daughter.” If he dared to do so even in the privacy of their home—I am not making this up—he would be put in jail.
This is madness. This is something out of Nineteen Eighty-Four. And it is something that many of us have stated plainly was coming to a city near you.
To Hoogland’s credit, and out of genuine love for his daughter, he continued to speak out publicly. And now, he has been put in jail.
Several years ago, when Canada passed Bill C16, the so-called “anti-discrimination,” gender identity bill, professor Jordan Peterson raised his voice in protest (this was before he shot to international fame), warning that the enforced speech of the bill would lead to situations just like this. His concerns were dismissed as extreme.
In response to Hoogland’s arrest, Peterson tweeted, “This could never happen, said those who called my stance against Bill C16 alarmist. I read the law and saw that it was, to the contrary, inevitable.”
I urge every parent to read Hoogland’s words, which follow here, and to feel his pain for his daughter.
Speaking of the court ruling, he said, “They’ve created a delusion, and they’re forcing parents to live in this delusion.”
And he asked, “What happens when the bubble explodes and the delusion ends. … She can never go back to being a girl in the healthy body she should have had. … These kids don’t understand. What kind of 13-year-old is thinking about having a family and kids?”
And then this: “What kind of father would I be if, in 10 years’ time she’s detransitioning, and she asks me, ‘Why didn’t you do anything to stop this? None of you stuck your neck out for me back then.'”
He will be able to say that he tried his very hardest, to the point of sacrificing his freedom. (Scott shared his heart in this video before turning himself in for arrest.)
You say, “But that was Canada. That could never happen here in America.”
Well, isn’t it bad enough that this happened to a family in Canada? Shouldn’t this concern us as well?
That being said, there is no good reason why things like this could not happen in America, given the direction the country is going.
In fact, in 2018, an Ohio judge “gave custody of a transgender teen to his grandparents rather than his parents, allowing them to make medical decisions regarding his transition.
“The parents didn’t want the teen, a 17-year-old who identifies as male, to undergo hormone treatment and refused to call him by his chosen name, triggering suicidal feelings, according to court testimony. The parents wanted custody in order to make medical decisions for the teen and prohibit the treatment that his medical team had recommended.”
As for freedom of speech, on Thursday, a street preacher who was speaking outside of a drag queen story hour, where these men read to toddlers, was threatened with arrest by a local officer. And what was his alleged crime? His speech might offend others. He was even told that saying that certain people were going to hell could be deemed offensive, since “hell” could be considered a swear word. (Watch the clip for yourself.)
As for these infamous, truly detestable drag queen events, it is now reported that, “The former leader of a prominent gay charity that sponsors Drag Queen Story Time for kids has been arrested on child pornography charges, local media reports.
“Brett Blomme, a Children’s Court Judge in Milwaukee, was arrested and charged with seven counts of possessing child pornography Tuesday, the state Department of Justice announced.
“Blomme, 38, is accused of uploading 27 terrible images and videos of children being sexually abused on the messaging app, Kik, using the name ‘dommasterbb’ between October and November 2020, according to the 44-page search warrant.”
No surprise that he was a champion of drag queens reading to toddlers.
This is why we must speak out against this madness and work together to stop the child abuse. And that’s why people like Scott Newgent, a biological female who now lives as a male and is anything but a fundamentalist Christian, have called for a broad coalition of people of conscience to work against children “transitioning.” (Having interacted directly with Newgent, I can testify that she is absolutely passionate about raising her voice on behalf of the children.)
Just this week, I was sent a link to an article from 2019 detailing the story of a lesbian couple in England. One of women identifies and lives as male, meaning that these two women live as husband and wife. Their son, then 5, began to identify as a girl, and so they have announced that their son is a girl and are encouraging his gender transition.
But this should hardly surprise us. After all, no matter how loving they may be as parents, a lesbian woman cannot possibly function as the boy’s father, nor does this child have a fair shot at discovering his true identity.
Do we, then, sit idly by while children’s lives are being destroyed? Do we remain silent while a father sits in jail for fighting for the wellbeing of his daughter?
Certainly not. The least we can do is raise awareness and raise our voices.
I will always grieve over the pain that has been experienced by those who identify as transgender. But I will not collaborate with child abuse.
Last Thursday, as the House of Representatives debated H.R. 5, the Orwellian “Equality Act,” a seemingly exasperated Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) arguably revealed the true nature of his party’s radical legislation. In response to Rep. Greg Steube’s (R-Fla.) speech quoting the Bible, Nadler declared that “what any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress.”
The Equality Act would enshrine the concept of “gender identity” into federal civil rights law, mandating that Americans kowtow to biologically false transgender identities. Steube quoted the Bible to express the fact that millions of Americans object to transgender identity on religious grounds and to warn that the Equality Act constitutes rebellion against God.
“A woman must not wear men’s clothing nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this,” Steube said, quoting Deuteronomy 22:5. Christians do not believe this section of the Torah, the Old Covenant law, is binding on Christians today, but we do hold that this law expresses God’s truth and directs human beings toward the higher law of Jesus in the New Testament.
“It’s not clothing or personal style that offends God, but rather the use of one’s appearance to act out or take on a sexual identity different from the one biologically assigned by God at birth,” Steube said (he should have said “assigned at conception”).
The congressman warned that “the gender confusion that exists in our culture today is a clear rejection of God’s good design” and that “whenever a nation’s laws no longer reflect the standards of God, that nation is in rebellion against him and will inevitably bear the consequences.”
Nadler could not let that stand.
“Mr. Steube, what any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress,” the Democrat argued.
In comments to EWTN, Steube responded by noting that the House of Representatives itself has “In God We Trust” behind the Speaker’s rostrum.
“To say that religion has no place in this Congress when our country was founded on Judeo-Christianity, I certainly disagree with that,” Steube said. He insisted that Judeo-Christian beliefs do belong in Congress. Nadler did not respond to EWTN’s request for comment.
The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), a coalition of more than 1,500 traditional Orthodox Jewish rabbis, harshly condemned Nadler’s comment.
“Mr. Nadler has forgotten the Constitution,” CJV President Rabbi Pesach Lerner said in a scathing statement. “The Founding Fathers required Congress to avoid infringing upon the free exercise of religion, meaning it must be sensitive to what every religious tradition describes as G-d’s will. It is especially true that Congress must remain cognizant of the set of foundational moral principles – including valuing peace, human life, and individual liberty and responsibility – that America calls Judeo-Christian ethics.
CJV joined many other organizations in opposing the Equality Act, warning that the legislation would eviscerate religious freedom and condemning the bill as “a disgraceful attack upon Jewish Biblical beliefs.”
“The Equality Act expressly declares that the Book of Genesis [see 2:24] and all of the Jewish laws pertaining to marriage as a sanctified union between man and woman… are nothing more than engagement in discriminatory stereotypes,” CJV argued in a letter to Congress.
“Mr. Nadler has unmasked the true nature of the Equality Act,” CJV Vice President Rabbi Yoel Schonfeld, argued. “Far from valuing diverse opinions and beliefs, it tramples free exercise of religion and even demonizes free speech. Reading the Bible in public, per the Equality Act, could be called an exercise in bigotry and grounds for a ‘discrimination’ complaint. Without question, the true bigots here are those who support deliberate attacks upon the cherished beliefs of others.”
The Equality Act would amend federal law to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, among other things. It would expand the arenas in which non-discrimination law applies and explicitly gut religious freedom protections.
In true Orwellian fashion, the Democrats have crafted an Equality Act that will promote inequality, enabling the government to privilege LGBT ideology over the Americans who disagree, for religious or other reasons. The Equality Act opens the door to a host of governmental actions to stifle dissent and enforce orthodoxy on LGBT issues, particularly the divisive claims of transgender activism.
Nadler’s statement that “what any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress” is utterly preposterous in the light of American history.
I watched a video with Lance Wallnau today and I was enlightened concerning a lot of things about President Trump and things relating to him in the Bible. Lance is the one who wrote “God’s Chaos Candidate” and has a new book coming, God’s Chaos Code.
I found myself laughing, crying and thinking WOW as God opened my eyes to see many things through Lance. This was so Good!
I pray very hard, you will take the time to watch and listen to what Lance shares about how Yahweh prophesied His love to King Cyrus over a hundred years – before he was born and how He is again giving a man favor to help His people through Trump. This is a must see to ground us all foundationally to what God is saying to us, His Church, for today.
Interesting it is written, Yahweh used Cyrus, The Great, the Persian King, who did not know Him to help his people, in the same
manner perhaps in how He is using President Trump, a Gentile, who did not “yet” know Him.
Our God is an Awesome God and His ways are surely higher than ours. I am sure He is watching and enjoying our struggle to understand what He is doing and more than that, what He is waiting for us, The Church, to do. Hallelujah! It’s in the video~~~~
Memorial Day likely conjures up memories for all of us. Mine start from when I was too young to know what the day meant. When I was a young boy, it was a family time, a holiday from school or other obligations, and a time for picnics, multi-generational baseball games in an open field, and reunions with seldom-seen relatives.
Over the years I have gained a much greater appreciation for this day and what it means. From my first assignment in Vietnam to my last in Germany, I was continually reminded of the extraordinary sense of commitment and service in the young men and women with whom I was privileged to serve.
The Last Full Measure of Devotion
During my last assignment, as 33rd commander of the US Air Forces in Europe, I routinely received invitations to speak at memorial events at one or more of the many cemeteries in Europe where young Americans are interred. I was particularly moved by an event in Paris at the Arc de Triomphe.
The heavy traffic that normally circles that beautiful edifice at a frantic pace had been stopped, and a crowd had gathered to remember and honor French and American men and women who had given their lives in the horrible wars of the 20th century. Many living veterans of those conflicts wore the uniform they had first donned at a much earlier age, and some of them still bore the scars of war. It was humbling to be in their company that day.
For four decades, I was honored to serve with thousands of dedicated young men and women. Some of them would die in service to their country. We were extremely sad at their loss as we comforted their loved ones and each other. They gave their very best, and we were reminded that we must do the same. They died serving something bigger than themselves—the transcendent ideals that make America the country we cherish.
For us as Christians, this day should have an even more poignant meaning. Many of the same values that our nation hopes to nurture and the traits military members are challenged to embody are consistent with those perfectly modeled for us by our Savior. He was the quintessential example of service and sacrifice.
In his letter to the Roman church, the apostle Paul said, “Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:7–8).
But before He died, He lived. Boy, did He live! To the consternation of those watching him, He invited himself to the home of a hated tax collector named Zacchaeus, He challenged the hypocrisy of religious leaders by coming to the rescue of a prostitute, He exposed the meaninglessness of their religiosity by healing the sick on the Sabbath, and He challenged bigotry and insensitivity by publicly engaging in conversation with a Samaritan woman that His society said was unworthy of His time.
As Christians, this example is our heritage also, regardless of our earthly citizenship. Citizenship in His kingdom, after all, is the one that counts. Do not mistake what I am saying. I am grateful every day that I am a citizen of America, and there is no other place on earth I would rather call home. Like most Americans, I am here by virtue of circumstances over which I had no control. I cannot explain it. I can just be thankful for it.
Patriotism and Piety
As I now view life in America as a private citizen, I am struck by the similarity of our expressions of patriotism and faith. Occasionally I wonder if we get the cross and the flag confused. As American Christians, we are indeed twice blessed, but we should not get the two confused. America is an imperfect place, an unfinished project, an ideal we hope to make a reality.
Our citizenship in the Kingdom of God is a gift extended to us freely by God’s grace. Paul told the Ephesian Christians, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:8–10).
The society in which Jesus lived also had many problems. There was hypocrisy, bigotry, poverty, and oppression of the weak by the strong, and He condemned all of that. America is probably a better place than that for even the most marginalized of our citizens, but it is not always what it should be for all of us. As Christians, regardless of our earthly citizenship, this is part of the work He left us to do. Is it our duty as Americans? Yes, it is—but even more so as citizens of His kingdom.
I do not always understand how God’s providence works. I cannot explain why those extraordinary individuals we now call our “founding fathers” came together when they did. They created a country based on their belief that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights.” Their belief in these universal, eternal truths—however imperfect their understanding and expression of those truths—yielded a society in which people of faith can function with more freedom than anywhere else in the world.
Does this mean that God favors America? I often hear people express that belief, but what I read in His Word is that He favors people who rely on Him, who place their trust in Him, and who proclaim Him as their God, regardless of their earthly citizenship. Does that ensure their health and wealth and a life of ease? No, it ensures us of the opportunity to be His sons and daughters, to tell others of the salvation that was freely given to us, to share in His suffering, and to live with Him eternally.
The American writer Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, once said we should give loyalty to our country always and to the government when it deserves it. I believe he meant that our only true loyalty is to those eternal principles to which governments aspire but do not always demonstrate. There may well come times when our government takes a path we cannot in good conscience follow, and we must stand where God stands. But it is right that we devote time to remember and honor those fellow citizens who gave their all for us—we are forever in their debt.
Living a Life of Service
Most Americans will never serve in the military—actually less than one percent of our population do so. And even among those of us who do, very, very few of us are asked to give that last full measure of devotion. So what is the question for us on this day as we remember those Americans who died on our behalf? I believe that question is —for what shall we live?
Whether or not we wear the uniform of our country, we all have a service to offer, a service to those ideals that reflect God’s universal truths and that our American ancestors captured in the formation of this country. When Jesus left this earth to take His place at the right hand of the Father, He left us, His bride, the church, to carry on His work. So when evil strikes in the form of a school shooting or when nature unleashes its fury and devastates property and lives, when children suffer, when people are hungry or homeless and ask “Where is God?!” we must be there and have them see Him in us.
We must bring His comfort and his healing to this world. When we live lives of service to those around us, we honor the God who saved us, and we honor all those who gave that last full measure to secure for us all the things we enjoy in this nation.
Someday we will find ourselves at the end of our lives looking back, and we will ask ourselves what it was all for. At that moment, we will all want to recall a life of service to something larger than ourselves, to children who needed our teaching and our example of service, to people whom we gave a hand up in time of need, to friends and colleagues whom we comforted in times of sorrow, lives with whom we shared the many physical and spiritual blessings that have been bestowed on us. If we live that life of service, we will have fulfilled the challenge of the Savior when he said, “Whatever you did for one of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matt. 25:40).
So on Memorial Day, and every day, we need to ask ourselves, for what shall we live? How are we doing at fulfilling not just the ideals of our American forefathers but those universal values set in place by the One who made us in His image, who sent His only begotten son to secure our salvation, the one who “created us in Him to do good works?”

Mark this day, May 22, 2020, where The President of the United States, President Donald J. Trump just “declared,” The Church and other religious organizations to be “ESSENTIAL” to and for the people.
Many shall come against this declaration however, in the Constitution of the United States it is written:
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.
We are not just “essential,” we have a constitutional right stating our freedoms in this United States and to my knowledge there has been no law passed by our law makers to legally alter this.
This day – I saw a tsunami being released from the mouth of our President, going all across the United States and then, unto the World. A shaking, if you will, of the kingdom of darkness as the President rebuked the closing of the churches and proclaimed the importance of the people being able to gather and worship Yahweh.
The ramifications of this proclamation are huge not only in our earthly realm, but in the spirit realm as well.
Last night in the FS Situation Prophetic Prayer & Intercession room Kathy Johnson shared this Word of the LORD.
The dams are breaking The mountains will be removed Its now its time my people Hold your ground Stand on high ground Stand on high girded about With my truth my words My promises amen \o/
I was quickened with all the words relating water and remember the passing of the mantle from Elijah to Elisha. Elisha picked up the mantle when it fell from Elijah, but until he struck the water, it was not his.
Today I saw Donald Trump pick up the mantle of the President of the United States and officially strike a blow to that which has risen against. the church and take his place, not only in the natural, but in the spirit realm as well as, “The President of the United States of America.
Oh Hallelujah! We were born for such a time as this. Now let us begin the work of the restoration of Yahweh’s House, now not only on ground, but online too. We have not decreased, we are revived and on the way to the increase.
In the Name of Yahshua, Father thank You for moving through President Trump and bringing the church encouragement and a confirmation of our right to worship and assemble, not only as it is written in the Bible, but as it is written in our Constitution.
SEE A VICTORY
The weapon may be formed, but it won’t prosper. When the darkness falls it won’t prevail. Cause the God I serve knows only how to “Triumph.” My God will never fail. Oh, my God will never fail.
I’m gonna see a Victory. I’m gonna see a Victory. For the Battle belongs to the LORD. I’m gonna see a Victory. I’m gonna see a Victory. For the Battle Belongs to You LORD.
You take what the enemy meant for evil and You turn it to good. You turn it to good. You turn it to good!!!!!
Did God Send This Pandemic to Turn America Around?
This discourse is in response to what I see as a “false” reasoning out there regarding the so-called “pandemic” and it being God-sent. I hope it brings encouragement and clarification to the Body of Christ so that they know how to think and how to stand – which will affect how we pray and decree. For openers and getting right to the point – this crisis is a sickness that is fear-driven.
Jesus never uses sickness to straighten us out. And God has not given us the spirit of fear!
One word of admonition here – Don’t go back to the Old Testament to prove that God uses sickness and plagues today. The New Covenant clearly does away with that idea. According to what the Word tells us, “That dog won’t hunt.”
Hebrews 1:1-3 tells us distinctly that Jesus, not the Old Testament prophets, is now our example. He clearly set Himself, and the Church, against sickness and disease. In His earthly ministry He never used sickness to straighten anyone out and teach them a lesson. And He always said, “Fear not,” or “Let not your heart be troubled.”
I say “false” because their reasoning does not line up with the Word of God. I say “so-called pandemic” because the numbers simply are not there to support the claim of a run-away plague, especially in California. If you remove the media and the government reports you have no pandemic – period!
There is still no death from the virus in Mariposa County – zero! And percentage wise, there are very few cases in all the other counties of California.
When I checked the official numbers on April 29, 2020, there were approximately 1,887 deaths in the whole state of California, and most of them actually died with other major problems. 1,000 of those are all in L.A. County.
So when you look at the rest of the state the numbers are extremely low. California has a population of about 40 million people. L.A. County has a population of about 10 million people. So, the 30 million Californians outside of L.A. have only seen 884 deaths. That’s much less than the normal flu and many other diseases.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Using “the good sense that God gave a goose,” let’s do the simple math…884 divided by 30,000,000 equals a 0.000029 chance of dying of this thing; that puts it somewhere between “slim and none”!
So, according to the real numbers, all the “shelter-in-place” orders by the state, which are constitutionally illegal themselves (in the state and U.S.), are total nonsense anyway! It was never necessary to shut the country down, close the churches, establish a police state, make crooks out of good citizens, and devastate the national economy and American way of life.
Check out these two Doctors and what they say here.
Make no mistake, the millions of people originally forecasted to be infected by the virus in America was a plan of the devil to shock everyone into getting scared and getting them to climb aboard the “panicky pandemic train”…and sadly, to a great extent, it worked. That’s why God calls people sheep.
Some articles and conversations I’ve heard out there say this is a pandemic, and that God sent this thing to turn America around. Now, let’s consider that for a moment. Let’s look at America as a big ship going the wrong way.
In all its sin it is sailing straight toward doom and disaster. With all the craziness that has been going on in this country I can see and understand that reasoning and concern. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
However, let’s back up and look at the big picture. The big ship was already turning back toward holiness and righteousness well before this crisis. The Church (the huge remnant of fiery prayer warriors – which I call the engine room of the ship) in this country, and especially this state, has been hard at it for years. A mighty roar of the Lion of Judah has been thundering into the ears of our merciful Lord and Savior praying for our nation. Here are just a few of the results:
• The Supreme Court, and many district courts, have been profoundly turning more holy since 2016. • Roe vs Wade is now doomed. • Common sense and righteousness have returned to the White House. • Frequent Spirit-led prayer meetings are now in the White House. • Israel is being honored and blessed by our country at a whole new level, including the U.S. Embassy being moved to Jerusalem.
These are things that place the hand of God directly onto a country and its people.
So no…this crisis is not a move of God that He is using to turn America around. It is an attack of the devil that God will make him sorry for by turning it for good.
I Know we still have a ways to go to get right, but remember, God doesn’t look so much at where we are, as where we are going.
Besides, our gracious and loving God knows how to reap a harvest out of hurricanes and a bountiful crop out of train wrecks!
Moreover, He will probably use this mess by putting an angel in the wheelhouse of the ship to pour on the power and put the “giddy-up” on the turn of the ship, steering it faster toward her manifest destiny – which is Him and His plan for America.
No, He did not send this virus but watch Him use it.
There Is a Good and Healthy Rebellion
We all know that the Bible says that “rebellion is as witchcraft.” But remember that is only referring to rebellion against God. Rebelling against an evil regime is not what that is talking about. There are some Bible characters that prove this little point: Elijah, Jehu, John the Baptist, Peter, James and John and the apostle Paul – just to name a few. And then there was that fella that made Himself a whip and turned over some tables, and drove the knot-heads out of the Temple!
Also, don’t forget that America was birthed from rebellion. Our forefathers were ordained of God to rebel against a tyrant kingdom. Those boys knew how to throw a real “tea party!” They also knew how to use those squirrel guns – running the creeks red with blood. That little, tiny Continental Army eventually, under the hand of God, sent the largest army on the planet packing with their tail between their legs.
Had George Washington lost that war, He and all the signers of the Declaration of Independence would have been hanged or shot for treason. But that rebellion birthed the greatest nation in history.
We believe it is time now for some godly rebellion from the Christians. It is time for the Bible-believing Christians to stand up and say “no” to the lunacy! Step out there and believe God!
This stuff should make you hat-stomping mad. That means you are so mad you throw your hat down and stomp on it! (Photo via PickPik)
Things are too upside down to even consider going with the flow…and remember, “only dead fish go with the flow.” Just consider this:
• The numbers we already discussed.
• A liberal governor tells the church to shut down and it must obey.
• The tobacco shops and liquor stores are essential and open, but the churches are non-essential and closed down. Give me a Pentecostal break!
• A gal can’t go to church but she can go get an abortion.
• The pet groomers are essential but the ladies can’t go to the hair dresser.
• Doctors will tell you that isolating yourself lowers your immune system and increases your chances of getting all kinds of infections. See video at:
• Doctors are reporting being pressured to state “COVID” on death certificates where it was not diagnosed.
• Follow the money – if a COVID-19 patient goes to the hospital Medicare pays $13,000. If that patient goes on a ventilator it gets $39,000 – three times as much.
• Many hospitals are going broke anyway because everybody is afraid.
• The farmers are plowing under their crops, euthanizing their livestock, and pouring milk down the drain while the food banks are being overwhelmed with people who need food.
There is a lot more insanity I could list here, but you get the point. Life has always been full of risks. It is past time to open the country all the way! Save the economy and people’s livelihoods!
It is time to stand on the Word and obey God, not man! God is ultimately in control of America.
Prayers and decrees by the Body of Christ are what are holding the virus at bay in this state and country, not the doctors, and not the governors. Other states that did not lock down are proving that.
America’s Manifest Destiny
America is blessed of God! It was established by God to spread the Gospel to the world, to stand for good around the world, and to stand with His Israel until the fullness of time. A nation that is blessed of God does not get overtaken by a plague.
Good Little Sheep – or Lions of Judah?
So, if you run into my wife Grace or me anywhere in Mariposa, or around California, you will not see us staying at home as good, little brainwashed sheep, or wearing face masks, or trying to keep folks away from us. We will be respectful, but if you reach your hand out to us we will shake it firmly…and if you want a hug it can be a bear hug.
You see, we actually believe that the devil and his disease bows and submits to the Jesus in us. You know…that stuff in the Bible. Besides, Jesus said, “Go!” not “Whoa!”
We love y’all and say “Happy Trails” as we all ride out of this thing! We appreciate those great words in the Bible: “And it came to pass.” And the old preacher responded, “Thank God it didn’t come to stay!”

Thursday, May 7, 2020 was declared a National Day of Prayer over our Nation and the outpourings from all over the US were incredible. I was not able to watch the official proceedings at the White House, but through technology, I was able to find a live stream from Charisma to listen in to the prayers released over our Nation.
President Trump and Melania, along with Vice President Pence and his wife Karen prayed and then, the President called up various spiritual leaders here in America to pray.
I am including the link for the video below. Note: The proceedings do not start until around the 23:50 time stamp, as they let the camera run, until VP Pence and Karen came forth. It is easy to fast forward.
I am thankful for President Trump and his administration watching and warring over our Nation. It is a delight to be able to speak and hear the Name of Jesus again at the White House and see our leaders calling on heavenly intervention for the United States and her people.
President Trump spoke strong words, as did the other spiritual leaders over our Nation, however I want to call your attention to Pastor Paula White Cain and her prophetic prayer. Pastor Paula is a Pentecostal preacher, a popular Christian Author, a former Pastor of a Florida Mega Church and longtime adviser to President Donald Trump. She has been tapped to head the White House’s Faith and Opportunity Initiative, a successor to previous administrations’ faith-based office that coordinates outreach to religious communities.
Take heed to the “words” she spoke over our Nation. They were not “her” words, but the Words of the LORD, which she released into the atmosphere reminding Him of what He said. She declared/proclaimed and prophesied over our Nation and our Leaders – victory, healing, and a future.
It was also good to “see” she was properly dressed, spoke the “word” she received in a manner respectful of the position she holds as a member of the Administration and as a Pastor/Prophet of God.
The President called her up to speak around the 45:34 time stamp. I included a link with the written transcript of ALL the prayers and if you want to watch the service, there us also a video link available below. I pulled Paula’s declaration out of the transcript and placed it first for you.
Blessings and Breakthrough over the United States of America, in the Name of Yahshua
Pastor Paula White, please come up. Thank you, Paula.
PASTOR WHITE: What an honor to be here with you, President and First Lady, Vice President, Second Lady. It’s a beautiful day to lift up our Lord and Savior. He is a certain God in uncertain times. And the Bible says, if two or three of us agree as touching anything, it will be done.
Job 22, verse 28 says: If you decree a thing and declare a thing, it will be established. So, God, we come in agreement with your word and with your name — the name of Jesus.
Psalm 40, verse 17 says: You are my help and my deliver. Do not delay, Oh God. I declare no more delays to the deliverance of COVID-19. No more delays to healing and a vaccination. No more delays to restoration of this great nation, the United States of America.
For Psalm 71:2 says: In your righteousness, deliver us and rescue us, incline your ear and save us.
Psalm 107 says: You deliver us out of the stress and out of destruction. Your word will not return void, according to Isaiah chapter 55, verse 11. So I declare your word. I declare divine intervention and supernatural turnaround. You will restore this land.
According to Psalm 118:25: Save our nation, oh Lord, and send prosperity now.
For Deuteronomy 28:8 says: Command your blessing upon this land.
You said in Deuteronomy 8:9 to bring us into good land without any lack.
For your word declares in Psalm 33:2: Blessed is the nation whose God is Lord.
So I declare you right now to be Lord over this nation, over the United States of America, and we receive your blessing over any plague, over any economic distress.
You will stay the hand of the enemy, according to Second Samuel chapter 21, verse 16:
When 70,000 men died by a plague, David cried out as he covered himself in prayer. And the Lord answered and said, “It is enough.”
Stay now thine hand. Lord, let that be the cry today, and let that be your answer. Lord, enough coronavirus, enough to death, enough to fear, enough to poverty. Stay thine your hand.
We pray over President Trump and First Lady, Vice President and Second Lady, and this administration. I declare Psalm 89, verse 21: Let your hand establish President Trump, and let your arm strengthen him.
I declare Psalm 98:1 that your right hand and your holy arm will give Him victory. We declare victory in the name of Jesus.
Isaiah 58:11 says: Guide him continually.
And you said in Psalm 78:72 that you would guide him by the skillfulness of your hand.
You declared in Psalm 43 that send out your light and truth and let him lead his household, his administration, in the name of Jesus.
Now, Lord, we pray for your mercies, for they are new every single day. And every morning, your mercies are new. Your steadfast love never ceases. I declare new mercies for hospital workers, new mercies for doctors and nurses, moms and dads, pastors and clergies, CEOs and employers, for the President and Vice President.
God, your love is steadfast and it endures forever. So right now, wrap your arms of love around every person who is hurting, every person who is confused, scared, tired, weary sick, lonely. Let them know your love. Let them know that you will never leave them and you will never forsake them.
And in conclusion, I declare Isaiah chapter 43, verse 19: I ask the Lord to do a new thing in our nation by giving waters in the wilderness and streams in the desert.
Malachi 4:2 says: Jesus, arise over the nation with healing in your wings.
President, one last word: Like David, who had had victory, after victory, after victory, after victory, would face his biggest battle — it was called Ziklag. And they would take his wives and his children, and the city would be burned down. And he cried and he wept, and he began to pray out to God. And God gave him a word.
And through fasting and praying, I believe this is the word for you and for this nation:
The Lord spoke to him and said: Pursue and go after them, and you shall, without fail, recover all.
Sir, the word of the Lord, I believe, for this nation and for this administration is:
You will recover all.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much, Paula. Incredible, Paula. Thank you.
