President Donald Trump Is A “Big League” Speed Bump, Withholding Satan’s Master Plan To Destroy The World As We Know It

We all know that Donald Trump comes with a lot of baggage, but most Evangelicals love him because he:  1)Supports Israel.  (There are serious ramifications for the nations who do not support Israel –  Genesis 12:3 King James Version (KJV):  “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”)   2)He is a huge fly in the soup for George Soros and his nefarious plans to implement the New World Order (NWO).  If Soros has the freedom to work through leaders like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the NWO and the Great Tribulation will soon be here!  Pray without ceasing for President Donald Trump and his successors.  Enjoy the following article that is focused on this topic.   Maranatha, Pastor Steve  <><

George Soros: Trump Has Almost Destroyed the New World Order

George Soros: Trump Has Almost Destroyed the New World Order
October 05, 2018

George Soros says he is alarmed and frustrated at the speed in which President Trump is dismantling the New World Order.

Speaking exclusively to the Washington Post, the billionaire globalist admits he regrets not foreseeing Trump’s meteoric rise to power.
Fearful that Trump “is willing to destroy the world”, Soros has vowed to “redouble [his] efforts” in pouring millions of dollars into opposing everything Trump stands for.

Zerohedge.com reports: While the Hungarian-American might come off as full of doom and gloom in his interview, he actually has a reason to feel that way because Trump has single-handedly presided over the dismantlement of the Liberal-Globalist world order that Soros has worked for decades to build, destroying the old paradigm of Trans-Atlantic relations in a simple spree of tweets and presiding over the return of Christian morals, ethics, and values in American society, ideas that are absolutely anathema to the atheist billionaire.
From Soros’ perspective, Trump is indeed destroying the world, albeit not in the apocalyptic sense like he’s implying but in the ideological one of pioneering a completely new world order than the one that the President inherited.

Obama, who can be regarded as Soros’ surrogate in the White House, worked towards building a world where the US bows before the authority of the UN on many (but crucially, not all) key issues such as climate change and sustainable development agendas, heralding in a new multilateralism that would have moved International Relations closer to a so-called “one world government”, albeit one that would still be largely under indirect American influence.

Concurrent with this, the Obama-Soros vision was to have the media attack all of their opponents as “racist, fascist, white supremacists” for daring to think that the future might be different, but then all of a sudden Trump came along and committed to undoing their legacy.
The world that Trump wants to build is one of unrestricted American unilateralism in “Leading from the Front” while unabashedly pioneering a return to unipolarity, righting what he truly believes to have been the many historic wrongs that Obama, Soros, and all the others before him committed in voluntarily handicapping American power through lopsided trade deals and various other unfair commitments.

All told, this global recalibration can rightly be described as a “Revolution in World Affairs” because of the “new thinking” involved in guiding America’s policies from here on out.

Not Your Daddy’s Democrats…

The following article is taken from the Sword Of The Lord publication from July 27, 2018.  Despite the fact that all Socialist and Communist Nations fail, this is what Modernists/Millennials desire!  The progression goes from Socialism to Communism/Fascism to Dictatorship.  Many felt that if Hillary Clinton was elected, we would have forever lost our nation.  I would agree 100% with that assessment.  I believe if a leftwing radical once again wins the White House as Barrack Hussein Obama did, we will never get our nation back to the desired roots that our Founding Fathers established.  And make no mistake, the liberal element desires to redistribute wealth, place your estate in the hands of the government at your death, and take away your second amendment rights.  Future demographics favor the Democratic Party – millennials, modernists and immigrants.  It seems as if the seniors are the only core group who favor the principles upon which this nation was built.  Once this generation passes on, unless the Lord intervenes, what will prohibit us from resembling Europe?  (The European nations are one by one capitulating to Islam).

Today’s Democrats desire open borders, illegal immigration, sanctuary cities, high taxes on the middle class, abortion on demand, impeachment, regulations that eliminate businesses and corporations, they want to totally remove American distinctives in favor of multiculturalism, and to forever bury the Judeo Christian ethic, the base upon which this nation was founded.  In short, they desire to homogenize the United States with their planning of a New World Order (NWO).

The Progression:  The Democratic Party > Socialism > Communism/Fascism > Dictatorship > The New World Order (NWO)

Fifty-Eight Percent of Millennials Would Rather Live in Socialist or Communist Nation

The majority of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist, communist or fascist nation rather than a capitalistic one, according to a new poll.

…Fifty-eight percent of the up-and-coming generation opted for one of the three systems, compared to 42 percent who said they were in favor of capitalism.

The most popular socioeconomic order was socialism, with 44 percent support.  Communism and fascism received 7 percent support each.  -gopusa.com

EDITOR’S COMMENTS: Whether or not these numbers are accurate (polls can be deceptive), it does tell us things we really don’t want to hear.  The universities across the nation are largely responsible for this.  Our churches who sit idly by and do not stand and speak up loudly and clearly must also bear some of the blame.

ARTICLE
Perfect Storm: 15 Flashpoints To Watch In 2nd Half Of 2018

By Michael Snyder/End Of The American Dream July 17, 2018

Events are beginning to greatly accelerate, and many believe that the ingredients for a “perfect storm” are starting to come together as we enter the second half of 2018. Other than the continual drama surrounding the Trump presidency, things have been quite calm for the past couple of years.

We have been enjoying a time of peace, safety and relative economic prosperity that a lot of Americans have begun to take for granted. But great trouble has been brewing under the surface, and many are wondering if we are about to reach a major turning point.

Our planet is being shaken physically, emotionally and financially, and it isn’t going to take much to push us over the edge. The following are 15 flashpoints which could create world changing events during the 2nd half of 2018…

#1 War In The Middle East – A state of war already exists in Israel. 200 rockets and mortar shells were fired into Israel on Saturday alone, and it won’t take much to spark a much broader regional war.

#2 Civil Unrest In U.S. Cities – Progressives are promising a “summer of rage”, and they are assuring us that all of the anger that has been building up against President Trump and his administration is about to starting boiling over onto the streets of our major cities all across America.

#3 The Nomination Of Brett Kavanaugh To The Supreme Court – Prominent liberals are stoking fears that the Supreme Court will start taking away “our most cherished liberties” if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate. Expect Washington D.C. to be the focus for a lot of the chaos that will happen later this summer.

#4 Tensions In The Windy City – The City of Chicago is a powder keg that could erupt at any moment. The recent shooting of a young African-American man resulted in a violent night of protests, and we should expect much more chaos in the days ahead.

#5 The 2018 Mid-Term Elections – These are probably the most important mid-term elections in modern American history, and tempers are running high on both sides. At this point the left appears to have more energy than the right, as they have accumulated a voter registration lead of 12 million in states that require party affiliation.

#6 Hillary Clinton – Hillary has been acting very much like a presidential candidate in recent days, and she has been continually fueling hatred for Donald Trump during her public appearances. Many believe that she will launch yet another campaign for the presidency once the 2018 mid-term elections are over.

#7 The U.S. Border With Mexico – President Trump’s immigration policies have absolutely infuriated the left, and Mexico’s new president is a radical socialist that absolutely hates Donald Trump and that has declared that immigration to the United States is a “human right”. It is difficult to see how this crisis is going to end well.

#8 The Trade War Between The United States And China – A full-blown trade war has erupted between the two largest economies on the entire planet. U.S. consumers are going to have to start paying much more for certain goods, and U.S. businesses that are heavily dependent on exports are going to have to start laying off workers.

#9 The Deteriorating Relationship Between The United States And Russia – Russia has become the “boogeyman” that gets blamed for everything these days, and relations between our two nations are the worst that they have been since the Cold War. Hopefully Trump and Putin can change that, but it is hard to be optimistic at this point.

#10 Will NATO Survive? – Donald Trump has threatened to pull the United States out of NATO if European leaders do not “immediately” begin increasing defense spending.

#11 The Stock Market – Markets all over the world have already been plummeting, and the smart money in the United States is getting out of the market at a pace that we haven’t seen since 2008. We are way overdue for a major crash, and if one happens during the second half of 2018 it definitely will not be a surprise.

#12 The Price Of Oil – The price of oil has reached levels not seen in many years, and many believe that the price is going to go much higher. This is already putting a tremendous amount of strain on working families all over America.

#13 The Political And Financial Crisis In Italy – The Italian government is going through an enormous amount of turmoil right now, and there are rumblings that the Italians may decide to leave the euro altogether. If that happens, we should expect to see the greatest financial shaking in modern European history.

#14 Earth In Travail – More than 30 volcanoes are erupting all around the world right now, and seismic activity appears to be escalating along the Ring of Fire. It is only a matter of time before we have a major seismic event in the United States, but hopefully that will not happen within the next six months.

#15 Drought In The Southwest – A devastating drought of historic proportions has already caused “Dust Bowl conditions” to return to some areas of the Southwest. If more rain doesn’t start falling, farmers and ranchers in the region are going to be absolutely crippled.

Of course it is inevitable that we will face some moments of crisis during the second half of 2018 that have nothing to do with the items on this list. One thing that is always true about life is that it is unpredictable, and so we should expect the unexpected.

But what virtually everyone should be able to agree upon is the fact that we are witnessing a very strange confluence of events that is unlike anything that we have witnessed in a very, very long time.

Is America about to plunge into a time of unprecedented turmoil? Only time will tell, but all of the ingredients are definitely there, and if a “perfect storm” does emerge during the second half of 2018 there are many of us that won’t be shocked at all.

Dinesh D’Souza on Obama and His New Movie “Death of a Nation”

This movie will be released August third.  It shows the incessant lies of the Democratic Party and how it is completely unhinged.  They want to destroy our freedoms, open our borders, take away the right to bear arms, and allow illegal immigrants to run roughshod all over this nation.  They are anarchists and despise the popularity of President Donald Trump.  Pray for this nation without ceasing.  Pastor Steve  <><

Death of a Nation
Watch The Trailer

Synopsis
Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him. Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right “by any means necessary.” But which is the party of the slave plantation? Which is the party that invented white supremacy? Which is the party that praised fascist dictators and shaped their genocidal policies and was in turn praised by them? Moreover, which is the party of racism today? Is fascism now institutionally embodied on the right or on the left?  Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, Death of a Nation cuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths.  Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump and we come together and save America for the second time?

The Comeback of ‘Under God’ ~ The American Renewal Project

 


 

‌ ‌ ‌

In 2015, the American Renewal Project hosted pastors and pews events preparing for the first four presidential primaries in 2016: Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. Participants included Mike Huckabee, LA Governor Bobby Jindal, TX Governor Rick Perry, TX Senator Ted Cruz, KY Senator Rand Paul, and FL Senator Marco Rubio.

On May 3, 2016, Donald J. Trump clinched the Republican nomination with his victory in the Indiana primary. The race to become the next president was down to Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald J. Trump.

Some Evangelical leaders got caught up in the ‘Never Trump’ movement. Russell Moore, the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), declared in a Washington Post opinion piece of October 9, 2016, that “If Donald Trump has done anything, he has snuffed out the Religious Right.” The article seemed an effort to suppress Evangelical turnout on Election Day.  [Russell Moore is a wolf in sheepskin and he is bad for the SBC.  He promoted “Crooked Hillary” in 2016.  Why would anyone be surprised that he desires to enable LGBTQ?  Note Trump’s accomplishments below.  Moore totally lacked discernment of what Trump would do.  Pastor Steve  <><] 

On May 10, 2016, we examined the ‘Never Trump’ movement in an editorial addressed to 100,000 American Renewal Project pastors:

“What and how will Mr. Trump do? I don’t have a clue.

“But with Hillary we do know. The progressives that she will stack on the Supreme Court alone will set back America for a century. Americans may well lose 1) their Second Amendment right to ‘keep and bear Arms’ and 2) their religious liberty (Kim Davis was just the warm-up act). Codifying transgender bathrooms rights will only be the beginning of nine unelected and unaccountable Justices imposing a godless agenda, tearing America apart brick-by-brick.” (read full story here: https://bit.ly/2wFciXj )

Fast-forwarding now to June 2018, a list of President Trump’s victories includes:
• Defending religious liberty.
• Standing up for the unborn.
• Defunding Planned Parenthood.
• Appointing conservative jurists to the Supreme Court and federal appeals courts.
• Reinstating the Mexico City Policy [policy blocking U.S. federal funding for non-governmental organizations that provide abortion counselling or referrals, advocate to decriminalize abortion or expand abortion services].
• Rescinding the Johnson Amendment by Executive Order.
• Commitment to sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
• Opening the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. “Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital,” Trump said. Many promised for nearly three decades, only Donald Trump kept his word.

A good explanation for the Trump phenomenon, aside from the Left’s narrative, would be “God helps those who cannot help themselves.”

Last week we discussed how Cardinal Karol Wojtyla – who later became Pope John Paul II – and Father Frank Blachnicki established a youth ministry in Poland to renew the Polish church. They did this through spiritual mobilization in the fight against communism. Their Oasis movement was created to counter Soviet ‘propagandizement’ of Polish youth by USSR Young Pioneer camps. An estimated ten million children had passed through 40,000 pioneer camps across the USSR during the 1960s and 1970s. (1) This was ‘evangelization’ and indoctrination by a pagan, communistic godless religion. Contrast this to the Oasis alumni, who took vows to live ethical lifestyles of spiritual dissent in the face of a hostile communistic system.

It is evidently high time for an ‘ Oasis movement ’ for America’s youth. We need a movement that will expel pagan Secularism, presently entrenched as gospel, from public education and America’s cultural mountains of influence. This would be a miracle of similar magnitude to Joshua commanding the sun to stand still.

In any case, let’s be clear: neither Wall Street, politicians, government, nor public education is going to save America. “They one and all fail, utterly fail, to meet the deep need of the soul. One and all they are unable to put away sin. And, yet, sad to say, they one and all supplant the Christ of God – He is not wanted; He passes by unnoticed.” (2)

The phrase “passes by unnoticed” leads us to Proverbs 8:10: “Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.” If riches are esteemed and desired over Wisdom, she quietly withdraws, without a commotion. Even a cursory glance at our culture will show that God has withdrawn His hand from secularized, public education. Wisdom’s absence is unmistakable.

As long as pagan Secularism controls America’s cultural mountains of influence – public education, academia, newsrooms, sports, the courts, big business, Hollywood, medicine – we are going downhill as a nation. Each passing day it becomes clearer that Christians have neglected their duty over the last three-quarters of a century. Christians have treated the conflict between the pagan religion of Secularism and the Biblical God Jehovah casually, as just another passing fancy. Yet, on the contrary, this is war.

We Christians must now make the fullest possible use of all means at our disposal to dislodge Secularism from the public square and the culture if America is to survive. This spiritual war calls for persistent vigilance together with action.

Currently, Donald Trump looks to be our best ally. God has raised a Samson “willing to do what God’s people are not.” ( goo.gl/2p6TXE)

Christians must take their civic government skills to the next level. A great tutor for developing such skills is former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Newt’s new book is titled Trump’s America. ( goo.gl/YrH8pM)

In Chapter 3 – The Comeback of ‘Under God’ – it reads: “Essentially, the anti-Trump coalition has twisted freedom of religion into freedom from religion by casting faith as a source of oppression that should be removed from public life. … This is why freedom of religion is an essential pillar of America – and a key to the American comeback.”

Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.

Politics Can Push People Out the Church Door

Ouch!  As a pastor I stand guilty as charged.  I often lack sensitivity to those of different political persuasions, and ramrod my own beliefs in a sanctimonious fashion.  I appreciate this article and need to learn from it.  By the way, if you disagree with material within this blogsite, it will most likely be under the category of “Current Events,” which often has political overtones.

leave church politics research

By Bob Smietana   ~   May 9, 2018
Paul Djupe, a political scientist at Denison University, has a word of caution for church leaders.
Be careful when you get involved in politics—or you may drive some people away.
Political victories often come with costs, says Djupe—especially when conservative Christians are involved.
A new study in Political Research Quarterly, co-authored by Djupe, looks at the rate of so-called “nones”—Americans who claim no religious identity—in states where conservative Christians supported bans on same-sex marriage or laws that affected gay rights.
In those states, the rate of nones went up.
“Our findings suggest that Christian Right influence in state politics seems to negatively affect religion, such that religious attachments fade in the face of visible Christian Right policy victories,” Djupe and his coauthors wrote.
Djupe told Facts & Trends that politics can have unintended consequences for churches. Political debates don’t drive away core churchgoers, he says. But they can cause some people to swear off religion altogether.
“When churches take political stands,” he says, “people are going to start to evaluate them based on those political criteria and not religious criteria.”
A similar study Djupe was involved in showed that people on the edges of church life are more likely to leave over politics.
“We found that it was marginal attenders in churches who were exposed to disagreement that were likely to leave,” he says. “If you were a frequent attender who is engaged in church activities outside of worship, these disagreements didn’t make much difference.”
For the study published in Political Research Quarterly, researchers examined how the percentage of nones increased from 2000 to 2010. They found even in so-called red states, which tend to be more religious, the number of nones increased.
“One of the more remarkable things is that the rate of nones is really catching up across the country,” he says. “There are still some pretty sizable gaps if you compare Oregon or Vermont to Alabama, but on average, it’s close.”
Churches can’t swear off any involvement with politics, says Djupe. But he is concerned that churches can become too identified with either political party.
Instead of evaluating a church on religious or spiritual terms, people may begin to judge a church solely on its politics.
And pastors should know that political involvement has a cost.
“It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s going to have implications for the extent of their ministry outreach,” he says. “There are people that are just going to reject that and walk away. So they may segment the possible reach of their ministry (to only certain groups).”
A New York Times story earlier this year found a “quiet exodus” of African-American worshipers from evangelical churches after the 2016 president election. The Wall Street Journal reported last week on mainline Protestant churches that had seen church members leave—and some newcomers show up—due to political activism.
Writing in Christianity Today, Djupe and co-author Ryan Burge from Eastern Illinois University say their previous research showed Clinton voters were most likely to leave evangelical churches after the 2016 election. But churches at their best should be able to overcome partisan divides.
“The study results also indicate that American churches could benefit from being a place that welcomes, tolerates, or charitably engages voters of either party,” they wrote.
“As research has shown again and again, churches tend to be diverse places where people have the chance to work with others around a shared mission and shared faith.”

The Clinton Body Count…

…the gift that keeps on giving and growing.  Murder, Quid Pro Quo, Sexual Affairs/Adultery, Lies And Scandals Galore all go hand in hand.  In comparison to the Clinton Machine, Al Capone looks like the kid who took your lunch money.  Their corruption, and our nations’ lack of indictments in response to it, is a referendum on our countries’ moral and judicial ineptitude.  The Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the State Department, and the Attorney General have all insulated the Clinton criminal culture.  Pray for this huge swamp to be drained, and for justice to once again prevail.   Pastor Steve

*************************

The Bill and Hillary Clinton Complete Body Count (Full Documentary).  As a student of history, I find the Clinton regime’s actions result in murders analogous to that of the Roman Empire, whereas killings always happened in order for the emperor to attain his position and then to solidify and secure his power base.  What is fascinating about the mysterious fatalities that surround the Clintons, are the many deaths of their bodyguards.  Their household pets live longer than their bodyguards, because their bodyguards are around them constantly, and learn of their nefarious actions and contacts:

Bill Clinton is laughing at Ron Brown’s funeral.  Bill then sees the camera on him, and launches into fake crying.

It should cause great consternation to anyone born from above (John 3:3), that this evil woman missed the presidency of the United States of America (POTUS) in 2016 by a gnat’s eyelash.  Her loss was truly a gift from God Almighty.  The millennial generation does not believe in moral absolutes.  The leftists, elitists, and Hollywood celebrities totally reject Judeo Christian values, hence Hillary Clinton’s tremendous success in California.

Pray For Revival In America!

American Renewal Project / Billy Graham

Dr. Billy Graham will “Lie in Honor in U.S. Capitol Rotunda” on Wednesday, February 28, and Thursday, March 1.

Former President Barack Obama found himself in hot water with his progressive constituency last week by a tweet honoring the late Reverend Billy Graham. Headline:

“Obama faces progressive backlash for tweet honoring the late Rev. Billy Graham,” the Washington Times headlined.

Retweeting Obama, Christian Carter appeared to think that the former president was swimming against the tide: “Wasn’t really feeling the love and guidance… He may have done well by many people, but the man also hurt countless individuals in the LGBT and other communities. We don’t need to celebrate his death, the same as we don’t need to celebrate his life.”

Kaylara, a self-professed pagan, had some more inept sagacity to share on Obama’s tweet: “Nope. He spent decades demonizing my religion and directing hatred at us as well as the LGBTQ community. He gave hope and guidance to horrible people on how to be more horrible and bilked poor people to enrich himself, and taught his kids that too.”

The ‘progressive backlash’ aimed at former homosexual marriage and transgender bathroom champion President Barack Obama is that homosexuals transitioned from a ‘libertarian’ position in 2008 – framed as “Do us a favor, and let us live our lives in the privacy of our homes” – to a ‘totalitarian’ stance during Obama’s American experiment, 2009-2017, resulting in “Christian bakers, Christian photographers, and Christian retreat centers will take part in our weddings or be bankrupted.” Prayerfully, this was their last gasp.

If not for Divine Intervention in 2016, in the unwonted form of Donald J. Trump, fascism would well be on its way to a centurial run under the tutelage of a Hillary Clinton presidential victory. The dog whistle sent from her predicted electoral triumph promised that “Christians will sanction and ceremonialize same-sex weddings or spend time in jail.” Boy, did we dodge a bullet.

Progressive liberals are relentless, and brazen. Bolstered by their ‘Amen Corner’ – the cultural mountains of influence of America: public education, higher learning, newsrooms, sports, the Courts, the Fortune 500, Big business, Hollywood, and medicine – these Leftist crusaders do still live to fight another day.

A telling example, Juan Williams authored an opinion piece in The Hill, “Evangelicals sell their souls for Trump.” [February 19, 2018]

My friend Rev. Dr. Laurence White’s response should be planted deep into the soil of the about 65M-80M Evangelical, and 40M Pro-Life Catholic, Christian constituency:

“Mr. Williams misses the point, although I was pleasantly surprised by his righteous indignation over sexual faithfulness between husband and wife in marriage. A political candidate is chosen for his position on the issues not his/her personal piety. Neither Donald nor Hillary are practicing Christians. Their professions of faith are superficial at best and consistently inconsistent with their lifestyles. To assert the moral superiority of Hillary over Donald is ridiculous and irrelevant. Moral indignation in politics is almost always selective – my guy is a saint and your guy is the devil. Williams is guilty of the same hypocrisy that he is attacking in his article. An election is not a canonization. The most consistent Christian in the oval office in modern times was Jimmy Carter. His presidency was a disaster. At the same time, despite his commitment to the Lord of Life who established the family, he supported abortion and the destruction of marriage. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has proven to be the most pro-life, pro-family president since Ronald Reagan. I hope and pray that more authentic Christians will run for office. But even then there will still be no perfect candidates. In the meantime our God has a remarkable way of using flawed instruments to accomplish His purpose.”

Joseph Boot comes through with the gist of the issue: “First, culture is the public manifestation of the religious faith commitment of a people (be it Islamic, Christian, humanistic, etc…) so in fact there is no avoiding religious ‘civilization’ and ‘culture’ where any given worldview predominates. That is to say, there is no such thing as a neutral culture. ‘Multiculturalism’ is therefore just a contemporary term for polytheism (many gods). But no society can be governed by more than one ultimate source of authority without provoking civil conflict and social chaos. This is for the simple reason that Sharia law is not equal to English Common Law; nor is the Hindu caste system equal to the Western legal tradition of equality before the law. Each system has a different source of sovereignty and thereby a different God or ‘god’ behind them.”[1]

America cannot function when both Secularism and Christianity “are perceived and treated as equally ultimate – the result of such irrationality can only be social suicide and judicial chaos.”[2]

“Clearly someone’s vision of law and justice is going to be legislated and someone’s vision of ‘love’ endorsed by the state – an ‘establishment orthodoxy’ that opposes rival orders is inescapable.”[3]

About 250 pastors are running for local office in 2018: city council, school board, parks and recreation, etc. Thank God that Gideons and Rahabs are now taking up a place in the front ranks of the battle for the Soul of America.

Is Hillary Clinton an ‘enemy’ of religious liberty?

Thankful For…. Brigitte Gabriel

Thankful For….Brigitte Gabriel <brigitte@act4america.net>

Today at 7:13 AM

With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, I wanted to make sure I took the time to personally write my ACT for America family, and share with them that which I am most thankful for.

1. I’m thankful for our military heroes. With so much attention and praise given to ungrateful athletes who kneel during the National Anthem, I’m thankful for true heroes who risk their lives, leave their families, and in some cases, pay the ultimate price for my freedom. Their sacrifice is one I will never forget, nor take for granted.

2. I’m thankful for our law enforcement officers. The Thin Blue Line is under attack from the mainstream media on a daily basis. Imagine risking your life for someone, only to have them turn around and blame you for almost all of society’s ills. Imagine being tasked with protecting your community from terrorists, only to have some leftist politician like Bill DeBlasio tie your arms behind your back in the name of political correctness. I respect and honor those who serve and protect, unlike the NFL.

3. I’m thankful for you, my fellow grassroots patriot, who prefaces country above self, and volunteers their time and energy to make America a safer place to call home. It is selfless citizens like you, now more than 800,000 of which make up this organization, who are saving this country from self-destruction. ANTIFA, CAIR, the SPLC, etc. none of them stand a chance against our unified grassroots machine. We are too strong, too determined, and love this country far too much to let them succeed.

4. I’m thankful Barack Obama is no longer President. This is one that certainly cannot be overstated. How refreshing it is not to have to listen to our President lecture America about tolerance and “Islamophobia,” after an Islamic terrorist attack. No more James Taylor playing “You’ve Got A Friend,” to combat ISIS. No more praising America’s enemies, or attacking our allies like Israel. I could go on about why I’m so thankful for this, but you’d still be reading this in 2018 if I did.

5. I’m thankful for the fact that I am an American citizen. I dreamed of coming to America when I was living in a bomb shelter as a little girl, but never in a million years ever thought my dream would one day become a reality. I owe more to this country than I can ever repay, but it is through this organization that I can certainly try to repay that debt.

I sincerely wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving, and can’t wait to share with you what we at ACT for America have in store for you in the very near future.

Always Devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel

I would like to add one more to Brigitte’s list.  I am thankful that Hillary Clinton was not elected as our president.  The next time that you feel negative towards our nation, envision where we would be RIGHT NOW if she were elected.  Blessings, Pastor Steve

 

Happy Thanksgiving!
