Fear & The Coronavirus

How are you doing amid all this negative news of the Coronavirus?  Are you tursting the Lord to see you through?  Or are you fearful?  Afraid to go anywhere?  Afraid to congregate?  Afraid of those not wearing masks?  Afraid to go out without a mask?

Have you checked with God to see what He thinks your attitude should be?  Didn't He say, "Be anxious for nothing...?"  or "God hasn't given you a spirit of fear..." or "Fear not..."?
Do you realize that when we fear we are disobeying God and therefore sinning?  Isn't it time to repent, to trust Him, and to get about our/His business?  I can't imagine His business includes cowering in our homes, not going to church, not meeting with friends and family, not enjoying nature, not helping others.  How blindly we have been led by fear and those who hide behind saying it is in our best interest, but who instead are manipulating us with fearful reports for political gain.  Shame on them, and shame on us for following them.

In the beginning I, too, was cautious because we didn't know what we were dealing with, and because the goal for staying home was so that the infection of the virus would be slowed down and hospitals wouldn't be overwhelmed.  But then, of course, that didn't happen and it became obvious this was a power play by fear mongering politicians and global leaders to control our actions.  It is time to stand up.  You cannot hide from a virus.  If you think you can, you might want to read this article entitled A Hypervigilant Mom Followed Every Health Guideline. She Still Caught the Coronavirus. (FYI: Her symptoms were so mild she wouldn't even have known she had something which is being called a serious threat, if she hadn't gone for testing because of her fear.  How much she stressed herself (and is still stressing) about the virus because of the brainwashing we have been going through!

Wouldn't it be much more helpful if the government would publicize articles like this:  Is This Vitamin Better Than a Mask for COVID-19? by Dr. Mercola, in which he sites research into how effective Vitamin D3 is in building the immune system and repelling viruses.  Even though a huge portion of the population is deficient in this vitamin, the news media and authorities dealing with the virus make no mention of this fact.

It is time to educate ourselves and stop being sheep looking for a shepherd to follow.   The only shepherd we need is our Father God who knows what we need and will guide us into finding it if we will only look to Him.

Dolly Parton Hello God...

What an appropriate prayer for us today!

"My Bride, My Faithful Remnant - Be Found Ready!" Katie Barker

      We must fix our eyes on Jesus and His plan and purposes for this day.  It is so easy to get distracted and discouraged by all that is going on.  This sobering, but encouraging word from Katie Barker which was posted on The Elijah List today, is a great reminder.

My Bride - Be Found Ready
The Lord continues to speak to me about the critical time we are in as the Body of Christ, and the great importance for His people to come into alignment with His heart, ways and Word, and to be "found ready" to partner with Him in all He will unfold in this era. There is great expectation for what is to come and the Lord is inviting His people to be found ready. His heart is that all should partner with Him and that none should miss what He is doing in these days. His desire is for His Church to awaken, and from His great love He is shaking the Church in order to bring alignment.
There is an invitation being released at this threshing floor time (time of sifting) to be found on the right side of the divide so you may walk in the reward of greater partnership with Him.
I heard the Lord say, "I am preparing My Bride and calling her to be ready. A clear divide will be seen between My faithful remnant and those who are not found ready. There has always been a need to be ready, but no time greater than now. Those who are found ready are given the key to greater partnership with Me. My greater plans will unfold in the time ahead and I desire for none to be left out. However, only those who are awakened to the hour and aligned with Me will see the key (invitation) before them.
"My heart longs for My people to be found ready; to be found on the right side of the divide. If they could see what is to come and the magnitude of My plans that will unfold, many would now embrace the path of refining and the shaking, but I am looking for those who embrace My ways and direction even before they see. These are My faithful ones and the ones that will be given a greater position of authority.
Those Who Prepare the Way Are Arising
"A company of those like John the Baptist are arising, calling My people to repentance and a return to Me and My ways. They are preparing the way for the move of My Spirit that is coming. They are the ones crying, 'Prepare the way of the Lord.' They walk in the fear of God, not man, and are set apart for the advancement of My Kingdom. This new era will be marked by a return of the fear of God to My Church. There will be a clear divide between those who walk in the fear of God and those who walk in the fear of man. 
"Great unity will be seen in My remnant as they are of one heart, mind and spirit. They will be seen as My army, arising in these days. They are willing to walk the road less traveled. It is the road less traveled as it is available to all, but chosen by few. It is the road of righteousness and holiness. They enter through the gate of surrender, laying down their own pride and agendas.
"This road is the road of submission to Me and alignment with My heart and ways. It is the path of peace, for they are led by peace. It is the road of reward, for great is the sacrifice, but even greater is the spiritual reward for those who choose this path. I call this road a highway, as it is the path of advancement and acceleration into all I have called them to be and all I am doing in this hour. They enter this highway through the gate of sacrifice and surrender, but the gate of greater destiny, greater glory and greater works will open to these ones in the time ahead.
"I am releasing a new level of boldness to My remnant and they will boldly step out in My name and the power of My Spirit. This era will be marked by the release of boldness, and there will be a clear divide between those who are filled with My Spirit and fire and those who are not.These ones will do greater works in My name and will draw many to Me.
Exposing the Heart of individuals & Nations
"In this era of the heart there is a great sifting and uncovering of that which has been hidden. I am uncovering that which needs to be brought into alignment with My heart. I am shining the light on the heart of individuals and of nations for this is the hour for individuals and nations to align with their divine destiny.
A Word for the United States of America
"I am purging the heart of the nation. That which is in darkness is being brought into the light. I am exposing the heart and bringing healing and restoration to the heart of the nation. It is time for My people to stand united to see My plans and purposes come to pass.
"The pioneering spirit will arise like in the days of old in this nation. I have called the US to be a voice in the darkness, to boldly stand for truth and proclaim the way. I will use the US as a sign post and guide to other nations. Great is its military might but greater is the power of My remnant arising in this nation. 
"Division has plagued the nation but My remnant is arising in great unity and power to stand against the spirit of division over the nation. The tide will turn over the nation. Even now, My angel armies are being released. Intercessors in the nation will see a new day dawn over the nation. They will see injustices overturned by My hand.
"My people in the USA, do you trust Me to bring to pass what only I can do? Do you trust Me with the destiny of your nation? Will you lay down your own agendas and pray for My will to be done? My ways are higher and My thoughts are higher. I will shake the scales off the eyes of My Church and awaken them to the truth and hour at hand. I am healing the heart of the nation, for life flows from the heart.
A Word for Australia & the Nations of the Southlands
"I am exposing complacency in the heart of these nations and shaking My Church to take action. I will cause a sound to arise from Australia and the nations of the South Pacific. It is the sound of worship warriors arising. These ones will carry My fire. They have been purified in My refiners fire and operate in the power of My Spirit. 
"I am cautioning My people in the Southlands: do not return to the familiar but choose the new path I have highlighted in this time of reset. Don't choose what is comfortable, but choose the higher path. A divide will be seen between those that are apathetic and complacent and those that burn to see My Kingdom advance in these days. Let your prayer and intercession arise and be led by My Spirit. Now is not the time for apathy and slumber. Now is the time to stand. Look with spiritual eyes at the battle at hand and take your place."
A Threshing Floor Time
We are in a 'threshing floor' time where the Lord is separating the wheat from the chaff. He is looking for those He can use in a greater way in this era. We are in a time of sifting. The Lord is searching our hearts and calling us to return to our first love. He is exposing pride, sin and areas that need to be brought before Him in repentance and surrender, so that we may come to a place of deeper and closer alignment with Him. He is exposing doctrines and ways that have entered His Church that are not in line with His Word and ways. He is stripping away mixture and bringing us back to foundational truths so His people can step out in faith, truth and power.
The Body of Christ is in a significant time of preparation for the move of God that is coming, and the Lord is looking for the separated ones, the ones found ready – the "wheat." He is looking for those with pure hearts, who hunger to see His Kingdom advance and are willing to carry their cross and follow Him. These are His faithful ones who He will fill with boldness, and they will go, do and say as the Spirit leads them. They will carry His fire, Word and love.
The Lord is preparing individuals and nations for their greater destiny that He will unfold in the time ahead. It is not only individuals but nations that are on the threshing floor and are being shaken in order to bring alignment. The Lord is separating out that which is of Him and good and that which is not. The Word of God will divide truth from deception. May we be the wheat, the ones found ready and separated out for His purposes in this era.

Why Social Distancing Should Not Be the New Normal, Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

Another wise and informative article by Dr. Mercola that you might want to read:  Lockdown and Social Distancing: A 'Whopper' Hoax?

Trump holds MAGA rally in Tulsa, OK

    Watch this rally and then tell me why you would consider voting for anyone else!

    I've heard the criticism.  People don't like the way he talks.  They don't think he acts presidential. They don't like his history.  They don't like the way he looks, or they think he is arrogant, etc. etc. etc.  Have you looked at President Trump's record?  He has done more for this country, which I believe he truly loves, than any previous President.  He is a supporter of freedom of religion.  He is a supporter of Israel.  He has done more for blacks than any other President.  He has done more for the economy.  Don't listen to the naysayers, or judge by appearances!  Do the research--look at the record!  I believe he is God's man to lead this country and restore our honor.  I believe he is destined to expose the corruption we have been living under for decades.  Look at the evil that has already been exposed.  Can't you see why he gets such negative reviews from the media?  They are part of the campaign to destroy him before he can destroy them.  I am so grateful!
      If you believe in prayer, not only would I suggest you pray for our president, but that you would pray for discernment if you have been talking against our president.  Doesn't the Bible say, "Do not touch God's anointed?"  Wouldn't it be a good idea to find out if President Trump is one of those before you disparage him?
     How impressed are you by the Democrats?  Have you heard them state they hate this country?  They are embarrassed by it.  They think it is 'racial' to Make America Great Again.  Do you like the way the states and cities run by Democrats are going right now?  Do you agree with their destruction of these cities?  Or the murder of innocent bystanders, or of the disrespect for police officers? Or the tearing down of statues?  How can you even consider supporting this with your vote?
     I understand that years ago Democrats appeared to be supporters of the 'little guy' but that has changed.  It is time to rethink who you will vote for.  Just because you've always been a Democrat you can no longer hide behind that fact.  It's time to decide what you want this country to look like.
      Those of you who want President Trump to win MUST vote in November.  There is an all out war to destroy this country.  We do not want to be a Socialist--or a Communist--country.  Do the research if you are one of those who thinks we do.  You do not keep the freedoms you now enjoy under Socialism.  Some people seem to think we do.  Check it out.  Anyone living in a Socialist country now would gladly change places with you, if that is what you are looking for.

                               VOTE!! VOTE!! VOTE!!    And Pray!! Pray!! Pray!!

How Fear of a Virus Changed Our World from

With a death rate similar to the flu, was COVID-19 a trojan horse designed to disorient you to accept the 'new normal' while giving up freedom of speech, religion, the right to work and other constitutional rights - without stopping to think through the ramifications?

Amen, Senator Hawley

     An excerpt from Senator Josh Hawley's comments on the Supreme Court decision that blasts SCOTUS for taking the legislative mantle from Congress on sex.

“We’ve got to stand up,” Senator Hawley demanded, “and say we’re not going to take this anymore.”
“For religious conservatives, people of faith who labor here in the vineyard, I think that this result is going to cause people to question: What is it we’ve been doing? What is it we have been working toward? If this is always the result, at the end of the day, we have got to do better than this. And that’s why I’m ultimately hopeful about the future, because I think that what’s going to happen out of this is religious conservatives of all persuasions, of all faiths, backgrounds who belong that coalition, are going to stand up and say, ‘We’re not going to be quiet anymore. We are going to put forward our ideas. We’re gonna raise our voices. We’re not going to just be content to be relegated to the back. We’re going to come up to the front now and lead.”

Passover, April 30, Pentecost: Did We Miss Something? Johnny Enlow

Sorry to post two long posts today but both are excellent so I didn't want to delay posting them.  Both are from The Elijah List.

Have you been wondering if the prophets 'missed it' on their Passover and Pentecost prophecies?  Johnny Enlow addresses that concern in this message.

Passover, April 30, Pentecost: Did We Miss Something?  Johnny Enlow

A question so many of you have had is regarding some heavily prophesied dates that have come and gone. Did we miss something? Passover was prophesied by many, including myself, as being the most significant since Jesus was the sacrificial Lamb on the Cross. April 30 was prophesied as a date the coronavirus would be shattered. There were several children that had supernatural revelation from God regarding that day. Then Pentecost, occurring the last weekend of May, was also prophesied by me and others as being the most significant since Acts 2. Pentecost Sunday was then the day the riots broke out and the George Floyd matters took over everyone's attention.

This has led many to wonder, Did we get these dates and events wrong? Did something happen more than we perceived? Were the prophets and the revelatory children just all deceived or misled by their own desires? The short answer to "Were we deceived?" is NOT AT ALL!  Let me explain.
Passover and Pentecost Are Happening All Year
Though Passover and Pentecost had dates attached to them that coincide with the Hebrew calendar, here in 2020, they are ongoing realities. In essence, 2020, as a year, is about a lengthy Passover and a lengthy Pentecost. There was something big that happened on the exact dates of both, but since the Passover rescue operation is worldwide, it is still ongoing and in different sequences, depending on where. Likewise, the Pentecost outpouring did take place on the Pentecost dates—but the outpourings continue to show up in waves.

I personally experienced a Pentecost infilling and empowering, as did thousands who were with us on a Facebook LIVE on May 29. Watch that video and you, too, might experience it (James Goll, Rita Springer, Elizabeth, Justice, and Grace were with me for it).

Being rescued and being empowered by the Holy Spirit are operations from Heaven for all of 2020. It is not over if you somehow believe you missed it. Our nation and the world are in the midst of a major Passover rescue operation from Heaven. Much did happen during Passover week itself, but will be revealed later.
April 30? Coronavirus Gone?
This brings us to the April 30 date. A 7-year-old boy had nightly, vivid dreams where God told him of the coronavirus, "This will end on April 30th." Several other children had similar dreams, visions, or experiences. Some I did not report on. It was too much and too many to ignore; and furthermore, it tied in with a Passover "rescue operation" that several of us saw.

Why is COVID-19 still in the news then? As many of you know, prophetic fulfillment often looks different than imagined. John the Baptist—who was the very one who prophesied Jesus as the Messiah in his forerunner-preaching throughout Judea—when imprisoned by Herod, sent word to Jesus: "Are You the Christ or are we waiting for another?"

Can you imagine second-guessing that level of prophetic fulfillment? When it seemed time was up on potential, prophetic fulfillment, Abraham and Sarah both doubted God's personal word to Abraham that he would be father of descendants "as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore" (see Genesis 22:17). Yet, the word spoken came back around and was greatly fulfilled.

I could go on and on with these examples. The point is that prophetic fulfillment often lacks the "zinger" effect we desire, but often looking back, we note how amazing it was. Jesus and His disciples didn't plan a Passover date for His crucifixion so that the whole world moving forward would be blessed by the marvel of the timing. It just happened on Passover; and even while it was happening it didn't seem so marvelous. It was the same with Pentecost. The disciples didn't plan to wait in Jerusalem for an alignment of the Hebrew calendar and their waiting for the Holy Spirit. It seemed delayed and random, and a few hundred left the waiting room because of it. Then, suddenly, a sound like a mighty rushing wind happened, and then as observers looked back, it became amazing to realize it had happened in coordination with the Hebrew calendar.

All that to say, some demonic empowerment of the COVID-19/coronavirus was broken off on April 30. The fear and projection of it ended for those aware of the truth surrounding it. A virus with a death rate in line with the seasonal flu was revealed to us at that time—confirmed by even the CDC; a virus that was symptomless for perhaps 80% of recipients, marginal for another 18%, severe for 2% (specifically if they were older and otherwise health compromised). But then even of those, a high percentage could be cured, if the known HCQ (Hydroxychloroquine), zinc and AZ (Azithromycin) combo were used. Truly, the coronavirus should be done as a newsworthy story, but surreptitious elements keep it around for other political purposes. There are also conflicting reports from the WHO if masks and social distancing really change anything—and yet that practice keeps going on around the world.

Truly, just as humans have not come into alignment with the Cross—where Jesus paid the price for everything to be dealt with—and so it LOOKS like another price has to be paid; so it is the same today. When Jesus said, "It is finished," it was. There would be no more sacrifice to come. So we have a virus that "it is finished" should be applied to, yet in various, sinister and mind-boggling ways it is given life and so continues to needlessly quarantine, bring fear, destroy economies, and bring death.

The ridiculousness of it reminds me of the (non-recommended!) 1989 movie, "Weekend at Bernie's," where Bernie is murdered, but two young men pretend he is still alive in order to be able to fulfill their plans. In the movie, Bernie is hilariously dragged about and posed with in order to deceive. In real life, it is not so hilarious. COVID-19 should be a dead story, not because it isn't a health consideration, but because it is much less a health consideration than many, many other things not making the news.
Conclusion: 2 Chronicles 20:20
My simple conclusion is this: "Believe his prophets and you will prosper." That is the 2 Chronicles 20:20 word of the year for 2020. As in that passage, there are multiple armies surrounding us and disorienting us. Believe what God is saying through His prophets and move forward in praising God for victory. This historic, stormy, and confusing year of 2020 will produce the big bang reward it was prophesied to do. The best is yet to come.

"God's Roaring 20s Are Here! Let the Women Roar!" Ben Lim

For all of us who have longed for this time, Ben Lim's word is a breath of fresh air and a great encouragement.

The Decade of the Roaring 20s
Many prophets have declared that this new decade will be like the Roaring Twenties of the 20th century. I fully agree with this word and I add my faith to this prophetic decree.
The Roaring Twenties were a huge shifter and a hallmark decade of the 1900s. It birthed many cultural renewals of that time. This was a time where Jazz music was born. This was also a time of the Red Scare of communism. People grew weary and suspicious of Marxist teachings that had leavened into the minds and hearts of the American shores and people.
The prohibition of alcohol also took place, giving birth to the mafia and to an illegal crime wave that swept across America. This unique time led to a great cultural shift, which also led to an uncommon economic boom!
The nation's wealth doubled from 1920 to 1929. This was largely due to the consumerism mentality that rapidly grew, along with the production of chain stores which fed the people's curiosity and greed. This time frame saw a big growth in ownership of things like mechanical refrigerators and the automobile Model T. Many common home goods were made and sold with exponential growth and speed and became regular household items for the American people.
The Roaring Twenties was a modern-day Renaissance with massive multiplication in every level of society!
The New Woman
In midst of all of these phenomenas, the great hallmark of what birthed and began the Roaring 20s is widely known as the "New Woman."
The New Woman was a term attributed to the fashion, style, and attitudes of a more modern day woman, that was contrary to the traditional views and more evolved from the stigma of women in that time.
This new sense of identity and attitude amongst the women led to a massive revolution in the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which guaranteed women's equal right to vote. This began the theme of gender equality, empowering women to have more access to diverse jobs, careers and education opportunities.
Let the Women Roar!
I believe that the Lord is raising up a new breed and army of women warriors to fiercely roar and soar in their anointing in mighty name of Jesus.
"When Jesus saw her, He called her to come to Him and said, 'Woman, you are free from your disability.'" (Luke 13:12) (Photo via Flickr)
The freedom and liberation of women is what became the foundational hallmark to massive change in the American society, and pop-culture, in the Roaring Twenties.
And as it was in the 1920s, so it will be in this new decade of the 2020s. There will be women voices, entrepreneurs, engineers, technicians, strategists, doctors, inventors and laywomen that will change history and shape the course of society.
In the words of King Jesus, "Women, you are free!"
The Birthing Mothers
God is raising up the birthing mothers in our day and generation. These birthing mothers will not only birth in the natural but will birth legacies and inheritances in the spiritual. They will carry nations in their wombs. They will carry nations in their spirits. They will willingly go through and endure the pain-staking shaking and burden of child labor. And together with the fathers and men of God, they will raise up a generation of those who fear the Lord.
These birthing mothers will birth thousands and millions of souls into the Kingdom of God by their prayer life, virtuous love, lifestyle of mercy, and integral compassion. These women will be be pro-life and pro-family and pro-traditional marriage. The Lord is raising up a new breed of Mother Teresas and Corrie ten Booms...Aimee Semple McPhersons, Kathryn Kuhlmans, Maria Woodworth-Etters, Henrietta Mearses, Marilyn Hickeys, Michelle Corrals, and Juanita Bynums in our generation to lead and to pave the way for the next generation that is to come!
Mother's Day 2020
This past Mother's Day 2020 was the official 40th year anniversary of the evangelist Lonnie Frisbee meeting with John Wimber in Yorba Linda, CA. This was the birthing and the beginning of the Vineyard Church Movement. This, of course, eventually led to influencing the Toronto Blessings, eventually igniting fires into Bill Johnson of Bethel Church, Che Ahn of Hrock and HIM, Heidi and Rolland Baker of IRIS ministries, and Randy Clark of Global Awakening and so many more!
Lonnie Frisbee received an impartation from the late Ms. Kathryn Kuhlman. This spiritual birthing mother, Kathryn Kuhlman, also imparted into the world renown healing evangelist Benny Hinn. These offshoots of revival and of the healing wave were touched and influenced by the life of Kathryn Kuhlman. Through her, the Lord of hosts has touched, reached, saved, and influenced millions upon millions of souls. The harvest that has come through the prayer and travailing life of this one woman is innumerable and immeasurable!
God can do it again and He is wanting to do it over and over again!
The Lord has released a Mother's Day anointing to birth another Jesus People Movement on the planet earth.
In the words of Lonnie Frisbee, "Come, Holy Spirit."
The Birthing of Movements
This is a decade of roaring justice and raging glory! This is a decade of great innovation and creativity. This is a decade of economic boom and a great wealth transference.
And we will see a myriad of women, both young and old, rise up with a fierce lioness anointing to take out and destroy the Jezebel and the Delilah spirits. We will see an army of women rise up with a true anointing and virtue of holiness, compassion, mercy and justice to take down the false prophets and prophetesses all over America and the nations.
We will see and hear new women voices of revival and reformation rise up in every sector of society; in the government, media, science, medicine, education, family, business, and health!
These new women will birth strong movements of truth and integrity that will debunk the false feminist movement, and all gender confusion, and will destroy the spirit of death and pro-choice of abortion that has cursed the land.
The Lord is raising up a fierce Bride in these end times to be resilient and to stand strong for the Church.
"The Lord gives the word; the women who announce the news are a great host." (Psalm 68:11 ESV)
Great will be the next generation of Sarahs, Abigails, Leahs, Hannahs, Deborahs, Marys, Junias, Loises, Eunices, Phoebes and Lydias! (Photo via Pexels)
"Truly, I say to you, wherever this Gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her." (Matthew 26:13)
The Great Depression
One of the devastating, unfortunate factors and aftermaths of the Roaring Twenties that quickly followed was the Great Depression. The Great Depression was a grievous consequence of the poor mishandling and bad stewardship of the American people. To make matters worse, right after the stock market crash came the Dust Bowl, which was a natural calamity of dust storms that destroyed the agricultural lands and fields of America. This greatly affected the nation, not just during the 1930s but for many more years and decades to come.
This natural disaster had plagued the United States, and immediately, our nation went from an unprecedented economic boom to an economic downfall. People went from celebrating to suffering and from prosperity to poverty.
Breaking the Spirit of Death and Suicide
This Great Depression was a spirit of death that swept across America. This depressive and oppressive spirit led to many suicides as people began taking their lives. Some people felt they had no choice but to take their own lives for the lack of food and malnourishment and suffering and poverty.
This Great Depression was such a horrible time in the history books and I pray that we will never return to such a downtrodden place ever again!
The Lord is breaking off the spirit of suicide, and the spirit of death will be bound in our nation. I believe the Lord is using and will greatly use women of God and mothers in the spirit to help heal, nurture, love, and deliver this generation from the plagues of death!
Women in Kingdom Ministry
This New Woman will rise up with healing and nurturing wings. This New Woman will help shift the culture that we live in.
This is a fight, and we need all women to be properly equipped, protected, blessed, and empowered. We need both males and females to walk together, in unity, for the greater glory of God.
I believe these Kingdom women will be a leading force of freedom, creativity, justice, and harvest for this Roaring Twenties – in this new decade – once again!

Talking With a Democrat About 'Systemic Racism' by Mark Alexander

Below is an excerpt from Mark Alexander's excellent article, Talking With a Democrat About 'Systemic Racism'which can be read in its entirity here.

..."In fact, Heather Mac Donald has thoroughly documented the racial disparity of interracial crimes. According to the latest Bureau of Justice Statistics survey of criminal victimization (2018), Mac Donald notes: "There were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations ... between blacks and whites last year, including white-on-black and black-on-white attacks. Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent."
Mac Donald adds, "That ratio is becoming more skewed, despite the Democrat claim of Trump-inspired white violence. In 2012-13, blacks committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; whites committed 15 percent. From 2015 to 2018, the total number of white victims and the incidence of white victimization have grown as well." Mac Donald concludes: "Blacks are also overrepresented among perpetrators of hate crimes — by 50 percent — according to the most recent Justice Department data from 2017; whites are underrepresented by 24 percent. This is particularly true for anti-gay and anti-Semitic hate crimes."
Note that black Americans represent 13% of our population but perpetrate 90% of violent interracial crimes. And their rate of intra-racial murder is obscene. (Don't expect to hear a single objection about either of those issues from Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, or Chuck Schumer.)
Unfortunately, this is the data-driven reason why police officers of any race often approach black suspects with a greater sense of caution — if they want to survive their shift.
Reagan also wisely observed, "We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions."

The Left's Insane New Cry: 'Defund the Police' by Arnold Ahlert

This is excellent article on The Patriot Post website includes some very interesting statistics and a thought provoking conclusion to what our world would look like if the police are de-funded.  I recommend reading it.

"A New Hope! We're Witnessing Birth Pangs of a New Beginning" Rick Joyner, Fort Mill, SC

Are you in need of a higher perspective?  This article by Rick Joyner is hopefilled and encouraging.

Birth Pangs
"It was the best of times. Courage became more contagious than fear. Riots were replaced with righteousness. There was constant awe and wonder at the great things The Lord was doing, and His peace and joy prevailed over the land." That is what will ultimately be said of these times.
To many it may look like the opposite of the above, but that depends on where you're looking from. Those who are seated with Him in the heavenly places are seeing the long-awaited Great Awakening getting traction. The revival of faith in America has already begun.
We still have storms to get through and some major navigation changes to make for the nation. However, we're not witnessing the end of the American Republic, but rather the birth pangs of a new beginning.
All births are bloody, messy, and come with a lot of pain, as will this one. It is not going to be easy, but it is going to be worth it. Like mothers know, giving birth to new life can be the greatest challenge, but it leads to some of the greatest joy we can ever know. For those of us who live in these times, it will be one of the greatest times of our lives and one of the greatest honors to say that we were here.
As that will ultimately be true, getting to the joy of the new birth is going to be one of the most difficult times our nation has experienced. As it was often reported of the storms that ships went through in Scripture, there were times when everyone thought "all is lost." We can expect to have times like that. Our ship of state has drifted far from its designated course, and it will be the biggest challenge in our history to get back to it. We have many battles and storms ahead, but we can do this.
In ourselves this is way over our heads, but with God all things are possible. He is the Captain of His hosts, and He is the Captain of our ship. When we get through this, we are going to know that it was Him, not our own wisdom or strength, that got us through it. When it is over, we will be like the Shulamite maid in the Song of Solomon that comes out of the wilderness "leaning on her beloved."
Entering the Lord's Rest
Remember that this is the year that we begin to enter The Lord's rest. Our rest comes from our trust in Him. Nothing is impossible for Him. There is no problem that He cannot fix or foe He cannot defeat. We are entering some of the biggest struggles, but they are so we can get to the biggest victories.
Don't let anyone or anything steal your peace. Remember that our main job in this is to trust. We must use everything to grow our trust in Him. Our orders in this battle are to follow Him and obey everything He tells us.
Thanksgiving is the language of faith and is one of our most powerful weapons. We are told to thank Him in all things. This means that we trust Him in all things. (Photo via Piqsels)
All of the problems in the world began when our first parents did not trust Him in the Garden. They opened their hearts to the accusation that He did not have their best interest in mind and was withholding something from them. The answer that will start to fix all the damage from the fall is for those who face this same temptation, and we all do, to choose to trust Him instead of disobeying Him.
We're at War
In December 2018 I had a dream that "the Second American Revolutionary/Civil War was inevitable, it was right, and it would be successful." Up until that dream I knew that we were headed for this if we did not change our direction, but was still convinced we could change our direction and avoid it. After that dream I knew differently, and almost immediately events proved it was coming. Even so, I was still thinking it was likely decades away. Then it started becoming obvious that it was coming much faster than I thought. I am saying for the first time that it is here, now. We are in the Second American Revolutionary/Civil War. We are in the first stage, but we are in it.
I'm not saying this just because of the riots. I grew up during the 1960s when we had much worse than we are experiencing now. We came out of those better, stronger, and more united than ever as a nation, though it took the country several decades to get there. But this time the divisions are deeper. The darkness is deeper and coming from many more directions. Now the hatred and intolerance is much deeper.
There is no ideology more contrary to the core nature and purpose of the American Republic than Marxism or radical Islam. Both of these have made deep inroads into the fabric of our country. Now our enemies are both foreign and domestic, and both are stronger than we have faced before. Much tearing and destruction must be expected, not just in the nation, but in our states, cities, communities, and many of our families.
I was told in 2014: "Patriotism is going to win." I have no doubt about that, and that we will emerge as a greater and more unified nation than we've ever been. I was given the privilege of seeing this. I was also shown this for many other nations. Even so, the enemies of all that we are and all that we are called to be have deeply infiltrated the power and influence centers of our country. They will not easily be rooted out. At the same time, the enemies without are also more powerful than we have faced before, and we are fighting both at the same time.
Though we are now in the biggest fight ever for the survival of our nation, what is really happening is bigger than our nation, or any single nation. We are in the time prophesied in Isaiah 60:1-2:
"Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you."
We are now entering the greatest move of God to ever come upon the earth and the greatest time of darkness that has ever come upon the earth. The ultimate battle between light and darkness has begun. However, the next three verses in this text from Isaiah tell of its certain conclusion:
"Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms. Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will thrill and rejoice; because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you." (Isaiah 60:3-5) (Photo via Unsplash)
The light is going to win. Don't ever forget that.It will not look like it at times, even for some long periods, but there is no question about the ultimate victory.
Changing Our Demeanor
I was in the Navy during the Vietnam War. Most of my time in was spent in schools and shore-based duties in the U.S. and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Then I was transferred to a squadron aboard our newest aircraft carrier, the U.S.S. John F. Kennedy. At the time, this ship was preparing for deployment to the war zone. At first things were pretty laid back, but the closer we got to deployment, the more serious everything became.
As we were in the middle of our last training cruise before heading to Vietnam, the ship got diverted to the Middle East for the Jordanian crisis. This crisis got more intense than if we had been in the Vietnam war zone. For almost thirty days straight we had continuous confrontations with the Soviet Navy, and it seemed every day a war could be ignited. The demeanor of everyone reflected the tension, but also an amazing focus. We are going to see this kind of change coming in the demeanor of the Church.
For several years now most of my teaching, preaching, and writing has focused on how to prepare for the battles I had been shown were coming. My book, The Final Quest, was distributed in the millions. Now I am again hearing from many people how they are re-reading it, and it seems even more timely for today than it did then. It is.
Now that we have entered the fight, there will be a change of tone and demeanor in my messages. They are going to be more like war chronicles. There will still be some about how to prepare, where to mobilize, etc., but I think we will all find that this intensity will be invigorating and some of the best and most fruitful times of our lives.
As Christians we have been at war from the beginning as "...the whole world lies in the power of the evil one" (1 John 5:19). In the military it is different when you are at war, but even in war it is far different when you are stationed at home far from the battles. The Western Church has kind of had such a place, but now we are going to be on the front. Christians who do not compromise or fall away will be getting much more serious and focused, and this will be to the great benefit and advancement of the Body of Christ.
The coronavirus crisis did much damage to our country, and virtually every other country, but it helped the Body of Christ a great deal. As Bob Jones had predicted that we would begin to enter God's rest in 2020, the stay at home orders gave us weeks of badly needed rest. Almost every Christian I've talked to since has almost been born again, again. The focus is back, the priorities are back in order, and we are already in a great revival, but it is just beginning.
In this emerging conflict, there will be almost nowhere that you can go to get away from it. We are all going to be on the front lines, but we should not want to get away from it. We are here for "such a time as this," and it is time to get in the fight.

Enough of this Victimhood!!

I, along with the majority of Americans, are fed up with these riots, the condemnation & hatred spewing from the protestors and the capitulation to their demands by so many!  Granted there is inequality, granted there are people who take advantage of others of all races and colors.  Granted there have been abuses, but the mobs who have been stirred up by those with another agenda to white hot anger to blame others for their own problems need to settle down and take a look at the truth.  If George Floyd had been leading an exemplary life he wouldn't have been in the situation in the first place.  When someone is high on drugs--it has nothing to do with color--if their actions are threatening the police they need to expect consequences.  It appears the police used excessive force, but have you ever tried to restrain someone under the influence?  They seem to have supernatural strength.  It is a tragedy that George died in the process, but how many innocent people have died unnecessarily because of the protests?  How many buildings and businesses of those who had nothing to do with the handling of this abuse have been ruined?  How much fear and anger and unrest has been unleashed?  That is an even greater tragedy.

The ancestors of these angry black people paid a price, being brought over here as slaves, but it can be proven that blacks are better off and have many more opportunities today than they would have if their ancestors had remained in Africa.  How about not squandering the hardships and sacrifices the original American slaves suffered, but instead make the most of the opportunities provided by those sacrifices?  Let go of the anger.  It does not help their cause to claim they are victims.  That claim to victimhood has been an excuse to not live up to potential for centuries.  How many children of abusive parents have led depraved lives because of anger, hatred, and bitterness toward their parents?  How many black (& white) lives have not mattered (made a difference) because they chose to be victims instead of responsible, productive adults?  And just because I think someone should be saying it--White lives matter, too!  Racism works both ways, and right now, I would say there is more racism by blacks towards whites than the other way around.  But who is pointing that out?  Certainly not the mainstream media!  They are continuing to fan the flames of hatred and division.  Do you ever ask yourself what is their ulterior motive?

I'm tired of being blamed for others' bad choices.  None of us have slaves, we don't know anyone who did, and neither did most of our ancestors have any--certainly not mine because we were poor people who lived in the north.  Do the research.  Why are most of the protests in the north--slavery was illegal there?  (FYI: Did you know the census of 1830 lists 3,775 free Negroes who owned a total of 12,760 slaves.)  I'm sorry for those who lived through slavery, but I'm even more sorry for those who continue to claim they are victims.  They are victims of their own negative thinking.  Slavery is not their problem.  Read what the Bible has to say about slaves and slavery.  Attitude is their problem.  Entitlement is their problem.  Unforgiveness is their problem!  We can't go back.  We must build on the foundations we are given.   Isn't it time to return to the wisdom found in God's word?  Didn't He say, be content in whatever situation you find yourselves?  How about making it our goal to do all things in love, forgiving one another just as Christ has forgiven us.  Now we are getting to the real problem.  We have forgotten God.  We have stopped seeking His Will and His Way.  We've stopped asking Him for solutions.

Romans 1:28-32:  And because they thought it was worthless to embrace the true knowledge of God, God gave them over to a worthless mind-set, to break all rules of proper conduct.  Their sinful lives became full of every kind of evil, wicked schemes, greed, and cruelty.  Their hearts overflowed with jealous cravings, and with conflict and strife, which drove them into hateful arguments and murder. They are deceitful liars full of hostility. They are gossips who love to spread malicious slander. With inflated egos they hurl hateful insults at God, yet they are nothing more than arrogant boasters. They are rebels against their parents and totally immoral.  They are senseless, faithless, ruthless, heartless, and completely merciless.  Although they are fully aware of God’s laws and proper order, and knowing that those who do all of these things deserve to die, yet they still go headlong into darkness, encouraging others to do the same and applauding them when they do!

Enough of this victimhood!  It's time to seek our identity in Christ and live up to the gifts and potential God has placed in each one of us.

Nolte: Dr. Fauci Is Either a Liar or a Fraud

John Nolte says exactly what many of us have been thinking--although I would have left out the last two lines.  I don't wish them harm, only an awakening to righteousness, holiness and truth and a desire to live it.  Read his latest article here.

Amazing Eyewitness Account of Violent Protests Outside the White House

If you had any doubt that these demonstrations were preplanned you might want to read this account given by a man who was 'in the way' when they marched past.

We are in a spiritual war, but God is on the move and will have the last say.
