At the Pond

    It started with our grandson.  He has become a great fisherman.  When I walked out to the pond last week to watch him, I realized he was standing most of the time in waist high weeds so I have been working at the pond all week trimming brush, mowing weeds, etc.  Doesn't it looks so beautiful?

The Feast of Tabernacles 5777: A Year For the Harvesters to Restore Dominion" Curt Landry

This is another long word that was sent by The Elijah List today.  Even so, it is so encouraging for those of us who love the Lord and have been praying for years for revival that you may want to read every word of it!!

This Prophetic Word was given by Curt Landry at House of David in Grove, OK, on 10.16.16:
This is a season of the Harvesters. This is a season of redemption from that which has been lost. This is the season of activation of the inheritance. 
"This is Exodus 3—Let My people go that they might tabernacle with Me, for I am calling forth the restoration of the Tabernacle of David. This is the feast of the ingathering. I am gathering the Spiritual Harvesters. I gave you, the former rain, in moderation; but now in 5777, I give you the latter rain with abundance, and it will yield a plentiful harvest as I said through the prophet Joel:
"Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you—the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil." Joel 2:23-24
"I AM protecting and providing abundantly for My Harvesters. As My word, which I recorded to Moses: 'For I will cast out the nations before you and enlarge your borders; neither will any man covet your land when you go up to appear before the Lord your God three times in the year' (Exodus 34:24).
For the Lord brought you here, and the Lord will deliver His goods to you. 
"As I spoke through Moses, 'You shall observe the Feast of Tabernacles seven days, when you have gathered from your threshing floor and from your winepress. And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant and the Levite, the stranger and the fatherless and the widow, who are within your gates. Seven days you shall keep a sacred feast to the Lord your God in the place which the Lord chooses, because the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you surely rejoice...' (Deuteronomy 16:13-17)
"For I Your Lord, Your God, command My people to rejoice—rejoice and look up for your redemption draws nigh!
"Do you not know that you are My Harvesters before the greatest harvest of the world? For you are the latter rain which I have chosen to usher in My Son as Messiah. And you shall go from feast to feast, and faith to faith, and glory to glory in this fire. (Photo via Wikipedia)
"Do You Not Recognize This Time of Tabernacles?"
"Just as Samuel was dedicated to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob at the Feast of Tabernacles, did you not see that his mother, Hannah, brought him to the temple? Did you not see that he was dedicated? Did you not see that not one word of this prophet who was dedicated at Tabernacles fell to the ground void? Did you not see that he was the one who anointed My king—that he anointed David as the true king? 
"Just as Solomon observed the Feast of Tabernacles in My First Temple, he was the one who knew that there was power in the restoration of Tabernacles. In Second Chronicles he brought forth an offering of a thousand bulls, a thousand rams, and a thousand lambs...and the sacrifice was abundant for all of Israel. Do you not see? For this is My altar... 
"And as I spoke through the Apostle Paul in the book of Romans, say it today prophet. For officially on this first night of Tabernacles (Sukkot) 2016/5777, the fullness of the Gentiles has come. For I will release an anointing of revelation into My Gentiles who are asleep, and I shall awaken the Church to know that the only root they have is the root they have in Zion. 
And Now the Question is Today... Will the Gentiles Arise and Shine and Come to the Lord's Feasts?
"Yes, they will. For you are My witnesses to what is happening with the Blackfeet—representing the First Nations—for where their feet go, so will the Crow, and so will the rest of the tribes. And they will awaken, and they will arise. For their identity as First Nations had been stolen by religious men and by religious ways. For they are part of My tribe, and I will let My Blood flow through them. And they shall rise up in an expression that no one has seen. And they shall be powerful, and they shall redeem the land. 
"The Harvesters will. Not all will...but My Harvesters will!"
"And they shall rebuild the old ruins..." Isaiah 61:4
"Yes, the Harvesters are going out into the seven mountains. The Harvesters will restore all of the mountains. The Harvesters in 5777, will start harvesting the business mountain." 
"...they shall raise up the former desolations..." Isaiah 61:4
"They will spend money in the education mountain. They will rise up in the education mountain not only in the House of God, but also in the cities and in the counties, and in the states. There will be a visitation in the school systems of the Glory of God. There will be a power and a revelation released of the Glory of God. School teachers will be on fire, and principals will be on fire—rising up as apostles and prophets. We will take this nation back. And it will be through business, and through the education mountain.
"...and they [the Harvesters] shall repair the ruined cities..." Isaiah 61:4
"Do Not Give Up on the Government Mountain!"
"Yes, the government has been ruined. Yes it has attracted nothing but corruption. But I am sending young fire, like I am sending in Senator Tom Cotton and many others like him. I will raise up prophets and apostles to go into the government mountain. For those who have sinned and those who have lied—I despise their lying tongues. And for those who are in government who are lying—I will raise up those who will speak My Word. I will raise up those who will speak My fire. I will restore into the government mountain. 
"Do not give up on those in the government mountain. There are those like Mike Huckabee and others who will rise up and speak the Word of God with fire and dominion. For we are in a season of transformation. 
"We are in that final Trump. I have raised up Donald Trump to raise an awareness of the corruption and the doubt and the unbelief. I have raised him up as a mirror to expose that which is done in the undergirding. Yes, he was unclean. Yes, he has done some things, but I have got him born again. I have sanctified him. I have filled him with the Holy Ghost. 
"Judge not, lest you be judged. For that which stands in the way of the sovereignty of the United States of America, the Lord, God shall remove. For I have sent hurricanes in the East, and hurricanes in the West, and hurricanes in the South. I have shaken the earth. My will shall be done in the United States of America, just as it has been done in Israel. This is the time to favor Zion...and the United States will be favored, as well!"
"...The desolations of many generations." Isaiah 61:4
"The desolation of the family—is over. As you remove Roe vs. Wade and you remove the abortion from this land, I will remove the curse off of your family. I will remove the pornography and the sexual impurity. I will remove the pedophiles. I will destroy that which touches My children. For those who touch My children, touch My anointed... And they shall no longer touch My children."
Fire and Revival to the United States and the Harvesters
"Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the foreigner shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers." Isaiah 61:5
"Yes, in the religious mountain, strangers shall come, just like those who have come from the Ukraine. For they have come to the United States to bring fire, to bring revival, and to reconnect the United States to Zion. They will come from China. They will come from Asia. They will come from Vietnam. They will come from the Ukraine and Russia. They will come from the ends of the Earth to the United States, for the United States will become a mission field. Jews will come back to the United States, because the Scripture says that it is time for Jew and Gentile to walk as One New Man." 
"But you shall be named the priests of the Lord..." Isaiah 61:6
"For the Lord breaks all of the confusion off of His kings and priests. No longer shall you be in the House of God on Sunday, and then confused on Monday, for you are called to be the priests of the Lord. For when you come up under the chuppahs and sukkahs, you marry Me completely—body, soul and spirit. For I paid for your life everyday, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For your God is a jealous God. He is not interested in you twice a week...He wants you all!"
"...They shall call you the servants of our God..." Isaiah 61:6 
They shall be called the Harvesters of God. For the three-stranded cord of Jew, Gentile and First Nations, will be the largest harvesting tool that has ever hit the universe.
"...You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast."Isaiah 61:6
"And the riches of the Gentiles will come through the media mountain and the arts and entertainment. For as the religious spirits threw away in the 1950s, the arts and the entertainment in the media, I am taking television back. I am taking media back. I am taking arts and entertainment back. I am taking that media back for God and I am raising it up now. 
"The Harvesters Are the Remnant...I spoke through Zechariah, 'Thus says the Lord of hosts: "In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, 'Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."' (Zechariah 8:23).
"For the Harvesters will go out—Jew and Gentile—they will go out, two-by-two, and they will know that I AM with you. For there is an anointing there that as you consume Me, I will consume you. There will be an anointing that will rest upon you like a tallit, and they will know that you have been with the Lord. 
5777: Grace—Triune Perfection 
"In My fire, I will fulfill Isaiah 60: 'The Gentiles shall come to your light [that's the fire], and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes all around, and see: they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, and your heart shall swell with joy; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you'(verses 3-5).
Please hear the word of the Lord, all you shepherds of the Lord's house, "Do not quench the fire, for the fire is that which will bring the 'true' sons and the daughters. What you get when you quench the fire are 'your' sons and your daughters. They are too familiar with you, and they will not listen to you. They will walk in rebellion, thinking that they are above you. They will want to control you. But if you will allow the fire on the altar of your church to be first and foremost, then real sons and real daughters will come, and there will be real unity. And the Lord will pour out the blessing on Life—Life forevermore."(Photo via Pixabay)
"Therefore your gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day or night, that men may bring to you the wealth of the Gentiles, and their kings in procession." Isaiah 60:11
"For My children, you need to open your mind, your will, and your emotions. For I will bring the transfer of wealth from places that you do not expect. And the transfer of wealth will come from places that religious people will be critical of, and they will say, 'I can't believe that they receive money from that group.' But I am higher than your ways. For I will have those who are unclean sow into that which is clean, so that I can put a covenant demand to save the unclean by sowing the seed into the clean. Let no man or woman call unclean that which I call clean. 
5777 is the Year of the Key of David: The Harvesters Will Come From all Nations, and They Will Release the Key of David 
Those who are in the business mountain, you need to hire those who carry the Key of David so that your business will be open to that which God has, and not the counterfeit coming from satan.
"Genesis 22 says, 'In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed...' (verse 18); for I spoke this Word to Abraham, and I am speaking this Word to you as Abraham. Yes, your seed shall be blessed." 
"And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of Heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed." Genesis 26:4
The Harvesters Are Part of His Inheritance! The People and the Land Will Multiply. You Are Grafted into the Inheritance!
Zechariah 2:11-12 speaks of the Harvesters: "Many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and they shall become My people. And I will dwell in your midst. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you. And the Lord will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land, and will again choose Jerusalem."
"Because it is 5777, and it has been nearly fifty years since June 7, 1967, at 7 o'clock in the morning, where paratroopers went through the Lion's Gate—it is Jerusalem's Jubilee. That is why I am releasing the Harvesters, because in that Jubilee blessing, all of the slaves are set free, and so is the land. 
"The Harvesters lead the nations by example as they worship the King with a Kingdom lifestyle, and a Kingdom economy. In the second day it was enough to impress the world with our worship. It was enough to impress the world with our buildings. It was enough to impress the world with material things. 
"But I say that the Harvesters will rise up, not just with worship, but with a lifestyle of divine health, and a lifestyle where I will renew their youth. And they shall rise up as on wings like eagles. And in an economy without lack, they will not make decisions based on finances, but will make decisions because when their Father speaks it, they will do it." 
Harvesters are the seed of Abraham—they are his children. They will walk in health. They will walk in wealth. They will walk in authority. Harvesters will have Kingdom authority, because they will have the wealth.
Harvesters Will Restore Dominion Every Place Their Feet Tread... and the Lord Will Give It to Them!
Harvesters know their calling. Harvesters are empowered. Harvesters are in proper Godly and Biblical alignment. Harvesters are the Bride who comes when He calls.
"For I am blowing a shofar from Heaven. For I am preparing for the final trump. I am sending the spirit of Elisha. He will be calling out through the young people. And the young prophets will be crying out, 'Behold! The Bridegroom cometh! Behold! The Bridegroom cometh!' And those who are distracted will not recognize the One in the Spirit, who is coming in on a foal—a colt. They will be looking for Him, with chariots. They will be looking for Him, with an army. 
"But I say, 'No. For I am speaking through the nobodies to the somebodies, that My Kingdom might come.' For I am releasing in the water, the anointing of John the Baptist. For they shall be immersed from their arrogance and they shall be immersed from their religious bondage. And they will become spiritual creations like all the rest of the Earth that is obedient to Me. 
"My Harvesters 'rejoice at Your word, as one who finds great spoil' (Psalm 119:162). Harvesters get ready to receive My spoil, for this is the year that I transfer the wealth from the wicked to the obedient!
"And I speak to you, as I spoke to Moses, '...the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you surely rejoice!'"(Deuteronomy 16:15). (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

Another Obvious Truth from The Patriot Post

      I like this obvious truth.  We are not the problem!  Criminals are the problem--not guns!

A Very Wise Word--Take Heed!

A Surprising Encounter
Last spring, my family and I traveled to Iowa for a funeral. We needed a few things and stopped by the local Wal-mart to pick them up. On our way out of the parking lot, we drove past a man at the entrance who sat in a wheelchair holding a sign in his hands. This man was incredibly disfigured; with legs missing, hands mangled and his face had been terribly marred.
We took him for a homeless man asking for money. We could tell that this man had obviously served his country. Instantly, my husband pulled up alongside him and shoved a ten-dollar bill in my hand and said, "Roll down your window, Victoria!" I wasn't even sure the man could make it to my window, but before I could answer back, my son shoved a twenty in my hand for the man as well. They were adamant, and they were right. 
Obediently, I handed the man the cash, but, even though he took the money, he did not seem grateful – as expected. No. This man seemed desperate. He was saying something to me. It was difficult to understand, but it was then I realized for the first time that his sign wasn't asking for money.
"Please Don't Believe the News!"
He pleaded with us – with his mangled hands and misshapen mouth, "Please don't believe the news!" Over and over, he said through speech impediments from his obvious injuries, "Please don't believe the news!"
Indeed, this man was on a mission. He was desperate to inform the public that the media was not telling the truth. He wanted us to know the truth as he had seen it first-hand fighting for his country. He was desperate for us to know what we were up against – the true war we're fighting. (Photo via Pixabay)
And he is right. There's a war going on right now for the soul of our nation; and a powerful and deadly agenda is being launched against us to sink its tentacles deep into our nation and many others.
A Call to Rise Up and Stand Up
Much like the nation of Israel in the book of Esther, the leaders were being controlled and manipulated by Haman's agenda and were attempting to destroy the Israelis. Indeed, it seemed completely possible that the Jews in Persia would be annihilated. But God saw their trouble before it even began and He'd created an answer to save them. God's answer was Esther. She was married to the king and she happened to be Jewish.
He'd put the beautiful, yet humble Esther into just the right position to redeem the people of Israel. Yet, Esther was afraid of what might happen to her if she obeyed the pleadings of her cousin, Mordecai, who'd asked her to intercede for her people with her husband, the king of Persia. 
She said, "'All the king's officials and the people of the royal provinces know that for any man or woman who approaches the king in the inner court without being summoned the king has but one law: that they be put to death unless the king extends the gold scepter to them and spares their lives. But thirty days have passed since I was called to go to the king.'
"When Esther's words were reported to Mordecai, he sent back this answer: 'Do not think that because you are in the king's house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?'" Esther 4:11-14.
A Risky Request
Much like Haman's agenda of hatred launched against the Jewish people, satan has garnered his supporters to implement his agenda against the earth. Those flaunting their power, trying to strip away the soul of our nation, really do believe they will get away with implementing their plan against us. But what they do not realize is their plan is NOT against us, but it is against GOD Himself. 
Just as Haman was being used by satan, so too in our time, the dark powers of the prince of this world manipulate world leaders to do his bidding. Thinking for certain nothing will stand in their way, they are numbed by their seemingly easy route to power and yet, they are unaware the hunters have truly become the hunted. (Photo by Donna Smallenberg "For Such a Time as This" via Elijah List Shopper)
The Lord has set a trap for them, but they're blinded by mind-numbing pride. Yet God has launched His own agenda for our world, but it is as much a test for the Church as it is was for Esther.
You see, Esther was afraid because what she saw with her eyes did not add up to victory. It did not look like she thought it should. She wondered how she could persuade the king when it looked like she had lost his favor. Surely, if God wanted her to dissuade the king, wouldn't it look like she had influence with him? She didn't understand, and her trust in God was tested.
Things don't always look like we think they should and these discrepancies can offend us and keep us from trusting fully in God. Like Esther, the conditions of our miracle are not obvious until we walk in obedience.
For Such a Time as This
What Mordecai suggested to her was not an easy thing and it was incredibly difficult for her to step out and use her position to deliver the Jews. Courage and understanding led her through; for she realized that she had been brought to her royal position for such a time as this. 
"For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?" Esther 4:14
I read a story years ago about a woman who lay in a hospital, in a coma, dying from a severe infection. While in a coma, she could hear everything going on around her, but could not respond. On her sick bed, she pleaded with God to answer her prayers and restore her life to her even though she was in a coma.
An Answer to Prayer
She was terribly bothered by a man she disliked very much who came every day to pray for her, and felt frustrated and angry that she could do nothing to stop him from coming to her room because of her condition. This man was relentless, and as she felt her life slipping away, she continued to trust God to heal her.
Then one day, she died and went to Heaven. In Heaven, she realized the man who came every day to pray for her–whom she hated so much–was the answer to her prayers. Through her hatred and offense she did not receive him, and she died.
Through the miraculous grace of God, she came back to life a short while later completely healed of her infection. Amazingly, her self-righteous offense against the man who'd prayed for her in her hospital room was also gone. (Photo via Public Domain Pictures)
You see, the answer to the woman's prayers came in a form she did not like and was not expecting. She did not approve of this man and believed no miracle could come through him.Obviously, she did not think he was holy enough. Her prejudice kept her from seeing the answer to her prayers; but even in her pride, God was merciful and answered the man's prayers for her.
A Tipping Point for Our Nation
Our nation is at a tipping point and we need a miracle; there's no doubt about that. Like the wounded warrior who spoke in disfigured desperation to warn us of the agenda of death launched against us, we cannot believe the lies of the enemy. We need God to save us and we cannot afford to allow our prejudices and offenses to hinder our miracle from manifesting. 
I've heard people say they will not vote in this coming election because they do not like either candidates. They're offended and they've believed the lies of the enemy. God wants to answer their prayers, but they've been offended by the way He wants to do it. It doesn't look as they expected it would. So, they assume their prejudices and offenses are God's as well, or determine in their minds that they know better. (Photo via Victoria Boyson)
However, when you ask for God's will to be done, you relinquish rights to your own understanding and have to accept God's will and trust it. It may not look like you would like it to, but it will save you. It will stop the enemy's agenda against you.
You don't have to vote in this election if you don't want to, but ask yourself if your religious stance of righteous perfection is real or a snare from the enemy. Is the enemy lying to you? (Photo via Victoria Boyson)
Remember Mordecai's warning to Esther, "Do not think that because you are in the king's house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish"(Esther 4:13-14).
Pray to Discern God's Will
Truly, we are in a season of testing and God is watching to see if we will trust Him or go our own way; follow our own understanding or acknowledge Him and His sovereignty and power (see Proverbs 3:5).
Ask God what He thinks and humbly accept His will. Don't take the bait of the enemy and allow him to manipulate you through offense and prejudice. For surely, God could raise up someone else to save us, but He wants to use you. Can you trust Him?
Obeying the Lord, even though it goes against all you think you know and understand, takes great courage but reaps rich rewards. Don't look back on this hour with regret. Seize the day and trust God. No matter what you think you know, you really don't know what tomorrow holds. This could be your finest hour! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

Dutch Sheets: "Election 2016: The Christian's Dilemma"

     This is so important!!  If you have been in a quandary about who to vote for in this election, please read this and consider the important facts Dutch Sheets reiterates.  Skip down to The Times Demand That We Make a Stand! if you don't have time to read the whole article.
     I beleive this is our last chance.  No matter how insignificant we feel, we must vote!!  Encourage your friends, neighbors, relatives.  Don't keep silent.  Political correctness--not wanting to offend anyone--is one of the reasons we are in this mess to start with.  It is time to take a stand to regain our country.

Dutch Sheets: "Election 2016: The Christian's Dilemma"

Dutch Sheets
Oct 21, 2016

Dear Fellow Believers,

As you can tell from my greeting, I am writing primarily to you, the American Church. I am doing so personally, not representing Dutch Sheets Ministries. Though this is longer than the blogs I normally send, please read it as an urgent, heartfelt appeal. The sense of urgency I feel is hard to put in words.
I have prayed and wept much over the condition of our nation, and continue to be deeply burdened. We are so close to the precipice of a complete self-destruction—a devastation of such magnitude that it would take decades to recover. Some believe a complete recovery would never be possible. The America we have known and loved is being systematically dismantled and reshaped.

Voting is a precious right and a serious responsibility; I realize it is also a very personal and private one. We do it by secret ballot in America for a reason. I don't want to be another voice of manipulation—there are so many in presidential election campaigns—therefore, it is with the utmost caution and conviction that I do this.

I also want to state upfront that I am neither a registered Republican nor Democrat. Years ago, I concluded that if my "calls to prayer" were to be trusted by Believers across the board, I would have to issue them as an independent voter. With this in mind, I relinquished my party affiliation, along with the rights to vote in primaries, help shape party platforms, possibly become a delegate, etc. and became an Independent. Since then, like many of you, I have become fed-up with both parties—disillusioned with the Republicans, offended and appalled by the Democrats. I say this to assure you that I am not making this appeal in order to stump for "my party's candidate."

Finally, I want to also preface my appeal by saying I have not been a huge Trump fan. Had I been allowed to vote in the primaries, he would not have been my first choice. His seeming arrogance, insults, history of philandering, personal ambition, etc. were very disconcerting to me. I kept an open mind, however, knowing God uses imperfect people and that He is very merciful—I don't condone sin, but neither do I cast the first stone—and knowing that people do, indeed, change. 
I was also challenged to remain open-minded about Trump by the fact that several spiritual leaders I trusted were convinced God wanted to use him to overthrow an ineffective and corrupt system. Over time, I came to agree with them. However, for me, this election is not nearly as much about who I am for, as it is who and what I am against; and frankly, even with my initial concerns, the decision has never been easier.
Vote For What is Important
One of the most devastating occurrences in America in our lifetimes, ranking up with The Supreme Court's decisions of Roe vs. Wade and Engel vs. Vitale (the removal of prayer from schools), was the election of Barack Obama. I gave a strong warning about what would happen to our nation if he was elected. Sadly, it has all come to pass: a continued liberalization and empowerment of the judicial system in America; a weakened economy (our national debt has doubled in 7 years to $19 TRILLION!)[1]; further moral deterioration, along with a rebellion to and mockery of God (does anyone remember the White House lit up in the colors of the LGBT movement after marriage was re-defined by the Supreme Court? 
If that wasn't an "in your face" to God and those of us who "cling to their God, guns and religion" by the man who mockingly said it, I don't know what could ever be!); increased violence; a weakened position in the world, along with a weakened military; the advance of radical Islamist terrorism; a setback in race relations; and more. I rejoice that our nation has been able to elect our first black president. I am deeply saddened, however, that it was Barack Obama.

The damage has been so great that America is now one president away from a complete transformation to secularism, a loss of our Judeo-Christian foundation, the loss of our position as the stabilizing force for good in the earth, and the leading voice of the Gospel to all the world. If elected, Hillary Clinton will be the president who finishes the job. She stands almost entirely against everything we, the Church, are for, and for everything we are against. 
Hillary is pro-abortion, including partial-birth abortion, the most insidious evil of the last century; will raise taxes while continuing out-of-control spending; will further weaken our military; is for completely open borders[2]; is pro-gay marriage; supports Obamacare; has no respect for our Judeo-Christian heritage; sells influence; and is a proven liar. Do not be fooled—she will completely finish what Obama started.

The notion peddled by some "Never Trump" Republicans that they can keep Hillary from accomplishing what she wants for 4 years, then replace her with someone they prefer, is laughable. The fact that they should know this, and don't, is truly scary. Even more frightening is...perhaps they do. The Republican Congress has done nothing to stop Obama; why should we believe they will do so with Hillary? When they threaten to curb Obama with "the power of the purse," he simply calls their bluff and either bullies them into giving him what he wants, or simply does as he pleases through unconstitutional executive orders. 
A Republican controlled Congress has done nothing to defund Obamacare, slow down the TRILLIONS of dollars of debt he has accrued, prevent his treasonous acts with Iran, defund Planned Parenthood and their selling of babies' body parts (can you even believe such a thing even exists, and that the Obama's and Hillary condone it?!), or stop any number of other inappropriate actions and wasteful expenditures. Much of Washington, DC is an out-of-control cancer that must be cut out.

To be sure, there are Republican leaders who desperately want to change things but the entrenched, lobbyist-owned, career politicians—many of them liberals in conservative clothing—have neither the will, backbone, and perhaps not the intellect needed to change it. Radical surgery is necessary. Again, it is laughable to think that the leadership of this weak and diluted Republican Congress would be able or willing to stop the agenda of the libs once they enjoy an even greater momentum from another White House win. Someone please tell me why we should believe that. If the Republican Party has not sold us out, why did they spend $18.2 million on Bush's election in 2004, $53.5 million for McCain in 2008, $42.4 million for Romney in 2012, and $0 on ads to elect Trump?![3] They have sold us out.

It is also ridiculous, and perhaps insincere, for the "Never Trump" Republican leaders to suggest "we would only need to reverse 4-8 years of damage if Hillary is elected, which in the long run isn't much." Again, these leaders are either lying or horribly deceived. The damage presently occurring to our nation is—in the sense of time—exponential. Every year of damage means closer to 10 years in its longevity.
• How long will it take America to reverse another $4-8 trillion of increased debt? Decades!
• How long will it take us to recover from the decimating of our military? Decades!
• How long will it take to defeat a now entrenched Obama/Clinton-enabled ISIS? Decades! (And honest military and intelligence leaders admit that we now have many radical Islamist terrorists here in the US, not just abroad.)
• How long will it take to undo the loss of appropriate fear, which our enemies, and the enemies of freedom around the world, once had toward us? Decades! (Our enemies now laugh at us, while attacking us with our own weapons, or weapons purchased with millions in ransom money we paid them. While Putin rebuilds the Soviet empire and China makes plans to rule the world, we are disarming. We can't even identify our enemies. Obama and those around him are foolish and spineless, and our military leaders know it. We are the laughingstock of our enemies. Hillary helped to set this debacle of foreign policy, and she will continue it.)
• How long will it take to recover from 2-5 Clinton lifetime appointees to the Supreme Court? Decades! If she appoints five, which is feasible, she will have single-handedly appointed over half of the Supreme Court, and will have given the liberal, non-constitutionalists a 30-40 year, 7-2 majority advantage! (There is one vacancy now, and of the other 8 Justices, the three oldest are 77, 79 and 83; two more are in their late 60's.) Then there are the several hundred lifetime Federal Judges she would appoint. Obama has already appointed nearly half of our Federal Judges—all liberals—and Hillary would appoint the other half. This entire scenario is unthinkable! If all this occurs, these overreaching, legislating ideologues will finish the job of decimating everything you and I stand for. America as we have known it may then be gone forever. We have less than three weeks to stop this.
Do Not Listen to the "Only Four Years" Crowd!
I also want to make an appeal to those who say their conscience won't allow them to vote for either Trump or Clinton, so they simply won't vote at all. I sincerely respect your convictions, but in this election, that argument fails the logic test (as does voting for someone who cannot possibly win). Trump's potential negative developments do not come close to the magnitude of those Hillary would produce. 
We simply cannot—regardless of our concerns regarding Trump—allow all the above-mentioned consequences to happen. I respectfully appeal to you to turn your "conscience" and "principles" toward the unborn, your children, grandchildren, and the destiny of this nation. 
Please! We have already been down this "not voting" path once before when millions of evangelicals refused to vote for Romney because he was a Mormon. As disgusted as I am with Romney's current choice of Hillary over Trump, how much better off would we have been with him, rather than 4 more years of Obama?

To see how Trump would actually lead, I would challenge you to look at those with whom he has surrounded himself: Pence; Carson; Huckabee; Giuliani; Christie; Gingrich; Palin; trusted generals; law enforcement officials; border patrol officials; evangelical leaders of all races; and otherwise, ethical, conservative leaders. What does this tell us? It is probably the greatest indicator of who Trump now is, clearly making the case that he has changed his moral ways over the past 10 years, as he claims. 
I personally believe he has changed. I also believe God has gripped his heart for the nation, and is in the process of further transforming Mr. Trump. God has certainly allowed him to be humbled. Of course, the statements made by Trump on the video released from 2005 were despicable. However, if we reject him because of the sins of his past, we would also have to reject Abraham, King David, Rahab, "the woman at the well", Mary Magdalene—all adulterers in their unrighteous past. And don't forget murderers like the Apostle Paul. A lot of formerly despicable people will be in Heaven! And a lot of them, by the way, became great leaders and champions for God. Some changed the world.
These associations also tell us that Trump's stated conservative bent is genuine, and they state that he is wise enough to know what he doesn't know! I believe Trump is showing us that he will function, if elected president, as any wise businessperson does: find qualified people who know how to get the job done, as in the above examples, and empower them to do it. I like those whom he is signaling to us would be those leaders. They are proven, trustworthy and honorable. If you cannot vote for Trump, vote for them.

Hillary, on the other hand, would give us 4-8 more years of polytheists, liberal progressives, media elites, police-haters, global statists, financially irresponsible leaders and a weak military.
The Times Demand That We Make a Stand!
Perhaps a better way for the disenchanted to approach this election is to vote AGAINST someone. I would suggest to you that voting against a candidate is a good reason to vote! "Neutrality" is not a valid option at this critical crossroads in history. The times demand that we make a stand! If not for, make your stand against:
• Vote against the foolish, selfish, shortsighted, establishment Republicans fighting to maintain their power.
• Vote against an immoral, ungodly Democratic Party. (To those who take issue with this characterization, don't forget that they booed God at their convention in 2012.)[4]
• Vote against an unelected, unaccountable, overreaching, out of control Judiciary that believes it has the right to reshape America.
• Vote against the unethical, biased, lying and untrustworthy media. (We will never reclaim America until we reject their influence. They may be the single greatest obstacle to America's recovery.)
• Vote against a weakened military.
• Vote against a loss of national sovereignty and a one-world government.
• Vote against open borders.
• Vote against policies that enable radical Islamist terrorism.
• Vote against the removing of our 2nd Amendment rights.
• Vote against higher taxes.
• Vote against Obamacare.
• Vote against the redefining of marriage. (It is not too late to reverse this.)
• Vote against abortion-on-demand, partial-birth abortion, and Planned Parenthood with its selling of babies' body parts.
• Vote against liberalism and progressivism.
• Vote against the silencing of the Church. (Only the totally naive do not see this coming quickly.)
• Vote against revising our history and the loss of our Judeo-Christian heritage.
• Vote against the politicization and exploitation of racism, and the polarizing of America.
• Vote against the slandering and weakening of law-enforcement.
• Vote against the politicization of the Justice Department, the FBI and other important departments of government. (Both departments are now undeniably and shamelessly used for political purposes and to oppose Christians and conservatives.)
Pastors, if you've ever made a stand, make one now—it may be your last chance. Tell your people the truth...clearly. Pray and fast! Turn your services into prayer meetings.
To all Believers, if you agree with what I have written, forward it to all of your friends and family members. Most of them hear only from a hypocritical, lying media, which is now the propaganda arm of the liberal agenda. Speak up. Appeal to them to read this and think about it.

And vote!

Vote for a future, one that includes what you love and believe in. Trump has flaws, but Hillary will be fatal.

Truth to Live By from Robert Hotchkin

     Elijah List posted a very good word from Robert Hotchkin today that God Is Hitting The Reset Button.  I was particularly encouraged and inspired by the conclusion of the article.  It would be well for us to memorize these concepts and the related scriptures.  Robert suggested we pray and agree that:

1.  Each and every Believer is the beloved child of God in whom He is well pleased.
Matthew 3:17:  "And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
 We will know and be confident in the certainty of that, the security of that, and the protection and provision of that.

2.  We do not "dwell" in the past but we dwell in Him, and as we do we are fruitful and fulfilled in all we do.
John 15:5-7:  “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.  If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.  If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you."

3.  We are not condemned to our pasts. The life-giving power of the Holy Spirit frees us from every trap, hindrance, distraction, deception, disappointment, delay, hurt and wound of the enemy that has ever limited or worried us in any way.
Romans 8:1-2 "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death."

4.  The very same Spirit that lifted Jesus up out of death and darkness dwells within each of us and quickens us past our pasts and lifts us up into our glorious futures.
  Romans 8:11:  "And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you."

5.  In Christ we are overcomers, we are more than conquerors, and we are always victorious.
  Romans 8:31: "What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?"
Romans 8: 37:  "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us."
2 Corinthians 2:14:  "But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him     everywhere."

6. God has amazing plans for us. Plans to bless and prosper us. Plans for a glorious future He is well able to bring us into. 
Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." 
    Deuteronomy 28:8:  "The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you."

Manhattan Study Crushes Cholesterol Myth

     I decided to cut & paste this email from Alan Sears, MD, because so many of my friends and family are taking statin drugs for high cholesterol.  I have read for several years that statin drugs are much worse for you than high cholesterol could ever be, but since I am not a doctor, most of them have ignored my advice that they should look for another alternative if they are concerned about cholesterol. (Many of the articles I've read say cholesterol is important for good health so I wouldn't be trying to lower mine anyway.) Anyway, here's hoping some will read it and look into the research.
    BTW:  Did you see the news today that 2 diet drinks/ day increases your risk for diabetes?  (I have also been on a crusade to get people off diet drinks because artificial sweetener is poison!)

The next time your doctor says you need to lower your LDL cholesterol so you don't have a heart attack or stroke, show him the results of the Northern Manhattan Study.
The researchers that conducted the study found that higher LDL cholesterol was linked to LOWER stroke risk.1
And another study published this year reviewed research on nearly 70,000 people. The authors of that study found NO LINK between LDL cholesterol and premature deaths in people over 60 from heart disease.2
This backs up what I've been saying for two decades! LDL isn't "bad" cholesterol — and it's not what causes heart disease or strokes. 
But despite the mounting evidence that's turning conventional medicine's cholesterol myth upside-down, don't expect your doctor to change his tune anytime soon.
If you have high cholesterol, your doctor will still likely try to put you on a statin drug. Especially if you have high LDL cholesterol.
Statins are one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world. They're a multibillion-dollar industry.
Nearly 30% of Americans over 40 are on one. And there's been a push to up those numbers… even though statins cause dangerous side effects like liver damage and kidney failure. They can even kill you!
The truth is that heart disease and strokes are caused by inflammation and oxidation. And we can measure for that — but not by measuring cholesterol levels.
Instead, I measure levels of the amino acid homocysteine. It's the best predictor for heart disease and stroke risk.
While most conventional doctors don't test for it — because there's no Big Pharma pill to lower it — you can and should request to have your levels tested. 
Anything above 10.4 mmol/L is abnormally high. I try to get my patients under 7. 
It's a simple blood test… and it just may save your life. 
I've seen patients who had multiple strokes with homocysteine levels as high as 26 mmol/L. In fact, I've treated more than 20 patients who had as many as five strokes. I helped them lower their homocysteine levels — and all of them are alive 10 or more years later.
So how do I help my patients lower their homocysteine levels without the help of Big Pharma?
The solution is simple... 
The best way to lower your homocysteine levels is with B vitamins. Specifically, B6, B9 (also known as folic acid or folate) and B12. 
In one study, participants were treated with B6, B9 and B12 for eight weeks. At the end of the eight weeks, their homocysteine levels were cut in half.3 Another study looked at 5,522 adults with heart disease risk factors. Researchers found that taking just these three B vitamins reduced the risk of stroke by 25% compared to a placebo.4
I recommend one more additional B vitamin — B2 (riboflavin). Here's how to boost these four B vitamins with food and supplements:
VitaminFood SourcesSupplement
B6Chicken, fish, kidney, liver, eggs, bananas, lima beans, walnuts25 mg
B9 (folic acid)Beef, lamb, pork, chicken liver, eggs, green leafy vegetables, salmon800 mcg
B12Lamb, beef, herring, mackerel, liver, oysters, poultry, clams, eggs500 mcg
B2 (riboflavin)liver, nuts, dairy, eggs, seafood and dark leafy greens25 mg
I also recommend taking choline and trimethylglycine (TMG). TMG is also known as betaine.
Studies show the more choline you have, the lower your homocysteine will be. In one study, people who took in the most choline had almost 10% lower homocysteine.5 And studies on TMG show that it can reduce homocysteine by 10% in people with normal levels. People with high levels saw a reduction of 20-40%.6
The best way to get more choline is to eat a primal diet with plenty of animal meat and eggs. You can also find smaller amounts of choline in cod, cauliflower, avocados and bananas. Good sources of betaine are beets and spinach.  
To supplement with choline, look for choline citrate. Women need at least 425 mg a day; men need 550 mg. For betaine, look for a "TMG" supplement. I recommend taking 1,000 mg a day.

Roseann Salanitri's Column on The Daily Rant--A Comparison of the Two Candidates


Time To Focus

A Comparison Of Both Candidates

This presidential election cycle has been both confusing and interesting. With a political master and a reactive champion of blue collar Americans as candidates, the terms of the battle lines are often drawn by the political master, Hillary Rodham Clinton. In this case, Mrs. Clinton knows how to man
This presidential election cycle has been both confusing and interesting. With a political master and a reactive champion of blue collar Americans as candidates, the terms of the battle lines are often drawn by the political master, Hillary Rodham Clinton. In this case, Mrs. Clinton knows how to manipulate the public dialogue in a manner that will shine unwanted attention on the flaws of her opponent, Donald J. Trump. This masterful tactic is part of an ingenious but simple political strategy whereby you change the narrative when you can’t win the narrative. The unfortunate aspect of this strategy is that it is wreaking havoc on the common sense voter who is manipulated into hating the highlighted faults of Mr. Trump, while at the same time being blinded to the faults of Mrs. Clinton. To make matters worse, Mrs. Clinton has amassed a substantial amount of help to realize her strategy. We call it the media. And unlike the media that dismantled the corrupt Tammany Hall machine, today’s media is more than complicit, it has become her most valuable accomplice.
In an attempt to help voters focus on the real issues of this fate-changing campaign, the following chart has been created.
Donald J. TrumpHillary Rodham Clinton
Promises to protect our Second Amendment rights to defend ourselves and our families.Openly supports more gun control. Has promised to appoint Supreme Court judges that will effectively abolish our Second Amendment Rights.
Pledges to build a wall to protect our borders.In private speeches has claimed to be an advocate of a borderless country.
Promises to create jobs based on past experience as someone who has created an innumerable amount of jobs.Promised to create jobs that never materialized when she ran for Senator of NY. She has, however, created jobs for those working in the Clinton Foundation, including her daughter Chelsea, who began bringing in a whopping $1,000,000 per year right after college.
Promises to abolish Obamacare.Created the prototype of Obamacare when First Lady, which was known as Hillarycare.
Expanded his financial portfolio through building and creating new entities.Expanded her financial portfolio exponentially by selling America’s favors to foreign donors, who often were enemies of America.
Has promised to appoint Supreme Court justices that are originalists that will uphold and support the Constitution.Has stated that she will appoint Supreme Court justices based on their life experiences, which she believes should rightfully influence their decisions.
A reformed and repentant playboy.An enabler of a nationally-acclaimed sexual addict and an enemy of his victims. NOTE: Bill Clinton’s abuse of power and sexual conduct led to him being disbarred and impeached. It also cost him $850,000, which he had to pay to Paula Jones, one of his victims.
Believes in law and order.Believes the police are corrupt and need to be re-trained.
Believes in national security and that refugees from terrorists nations should not be allowed to enter the USA until they can be properly vetted.Her open-border stance includes welcoming refugees from terrorists nations into America, knowing that they cannot be properly vetted. However, made no attempt to allow Christian refugees entrance.
Has gone into the inner cities offering hope and protection.Has gone into the inner cities promoting division and supporting the ideas of victimization, all while preaching unity.
Wants to repeal the 1954 Johnson Amendment that muzzled the voices of our churches and demolished their free political speech.Has thrown all Jews, Catholics, and Evangelicals into her basket of deplorables – and is still asking for their votes.
Wants to build up our military and improve the VA.As Secretary of State had been complicit in depleting our military while helping to build the military of terrorist nations. Also served on the Armed Services Committee while Senator and did nothing to improve the conditions at the VA, but uses her time there as something that should be credited to her experience – all while stifling a fair discussion of what her experience accomplished.
Wants to abolish Common Core, which overrides the autonomy of local Boards of Education and wants to return control back to the local BOEs.Supported her husband’s Goals 2000 program, which was initiated to give the Federal government control over local Boards of Education and is the precursor of Common Core.
Believes in placing America first in all of his decision, making him a nationalist.Believes in a New World Order and no borders for America, which makes her a globalist. This includes her promotion of the UN Rights of the Child that would strip parents of their god-given parental rights and bestow them on a UN committee of unknown foreign states and their representatives. It is what she meant when she said that it takes a village to raise a child.
Wants to repeal NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) and opposes TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership).Says she’s against them in public but supports them in private.
Has reached out to Putin to create an atmosphere where the two countries can negotiate peace.Has struck deals with Putin through her Clinton Foundation and then double-crossed him, creating an impassioned enemy. It should be noted here that if Russia is behind the security breaches and email debacle, that it is just as logical to conclude that Putin is doing this out of revenge for how HRC treated him in the past and not out of any covert love for Trump.
It should also be noted that there are various unsubstantiated reports from the region that Putin is preparing for nuclear war should Clinton be elected.
Unknown factor when it comes to his reaction to foreign threats.Either employed poor or criminal judgment when it came to reacting to Libya’s threat of our American Embassy, resulting in the deaths of four Americans. This also resulted in what should have been the predicted radicalization of Libya.
Do we really want this woman to be responsible for the safety of our loved ones?
In the past has managed to create a media frenzy over his candidacy.Has maintained media collusion to hide her faults and maintain hyper-focus on her opponent’s faults. This collusion has included releasing unsubstantiated (and as of now, debunked) reports from women alleging unwanted sexual advances from Trump, while burying the WIKI leaks reports that condemn her actions on too many issues to list.
Authentic, what-you-see-is-what-you-get personality, who at times can be very reactive.Calculating and manipulative with a proven track record of secrecy, incompetence, dangerous inconsistencies, a willingness to exploit, with the real HRC being a true mystery, since she admittedly has two position on any issue..
Documented speeches have her admitting to presenting one policy to the public and another one for her donors. In other words, has admitted to telling the public what they want to hear even when she has no intentions of supporting what they want to hear – all the while intending to represent the interests of her donors – even if they conflict with the public’s best interest. However, she may be lying to them as well, as it is within the realm of possibility that the only interests she represents are her own.

There you have it. A comparison of the candidates without the media-hype. Choose which one you think is better for America, and don’t engage in the propaganda strategies that would have you ignore the record of one and hyper-focus on the faults of the other. Frankly, the future of America depends on your ability to think this through.A
