Ladies and Gentlemen, we are witnessing HISTORY in the making! Current news events are showing that Christians will NOT be subject to the bullying tactics of the radical left members of Congress and news media.  The “push-back” with The Truth of God’s Word is being used daily!  Here is what Isaiah says about us:

See how Jerusalem (AMERICANS), once so faithful, has become a prostitute. Once the home of Justice and Righteousness, she is now filled with murderers.

Once like pure silver, you have become like worthless slag.
Once so pure, you are now like watered-down wine.

Your leaders are rebels, the companions of thieves.
All of them love bribes and demand payoffs, but they refuse to defend the cause of orphans or fight for the rights of widows.

Therefore, the Lord, The LORD-GOD of Heaven’s Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says:

I will take revenge on My enemies and pay back my foes!  I will raise my fist against you. I will melt you down and skim off your slag. I will remove all your impurities.

Then I will give you good judges again and wise counselors like you used to have. Then Jerusalem (AMERICANS), will again be called the Home of Justice and the Faithful City.  Zion will be restored by justice; those who REPENT (turn from wicked ways) will be revived by His Righteousness.

But rebels and sinners will be completely destroyed, and those who desert the LORD will be consumed. You will be ashamed of your idol worship in groves of sacred oaks. You will blush because you worshiped in gardens dedicated to idols. You will be like a great tree with withered leaves, like a garden without water.

The strongest among you will disappear like straw; their evil deeds will be the spark that sets it on fire. They and their evil works will burn up together, and no one will be able to put out the fire.

Isaiah 1:21-31


Dear ones, this “battle” is the LORD’s and not really ours!  We are to acknowledge that it is His Strength, His overwhelming Presence, and His most Generous GRACE that He will utterly destroy ALL of His Enemies! We are reminded of the “Fiery Furnace” that Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Attorney General William Barr and even President Donald Trump have gone through and we have seen that Fourth Man in the fire with them.

President Trump has appointed, and the Senate has confirmed more “Righteous Judges” than any other President in our nation’s history.



These are the times of the “latter rain” that Joel spoke of thousands of years ago.  We are receiving God’s poured out Holy Spirit on our sons and our daughters. His Word will quench ALL the fiery darts of our enemies.

Holy Spirit of the Living LORD, we PRAY in agreement with Your Word in 1Peter 4:12-17

Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you Partners with Christ in His suffering, so that you will have the wonderful JOY of seeing His Glory when it is revealed to all the world.

So be happy when you are insulted for being a Christian, for then the Glorious Spirit of God-Jehovah rests upon you.

If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by His Great Name!

For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God’s Household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News?

Make it so Dear LORD, make it so!
