“I’m Human Too!

I’M HUMAN TOO

William Cuccia
“I’M HUMAN TOO!”
“It’s what I heard when I asked why were you deeply moved when the crowd said, Isn’t this the man who opened blind eyes couldn’t he have kept Lazarus from dying?”

Deeply moved in John 11:38 means, to be moved with anger, to admonish sternly, snort (with the notion of coercion springing out of displeasure, anger, indignation, antagonism), express indignant displeasure with some one; I charge sternly.

Enraged!

It’s always been difficult to reconcile my view of Jesus in this setting where he used intense emotion to raise Lazarus from the dead. It’s almost as if he was saying, “I’ll show you!”

Or when Jesus displayed anger in the temple courts, I know it was righteous anger but I’ve never deal well with God, our Father being this full of emotion.

Again I hear, “I’m human too, you are made in my image, emotions and all.”
Jesus sits across from me, we are in identical chairs facing each other with a coffee table between us. It’s an obvious counseling session.

A sign on the door says “Do Not Disturb, In Session.”

Jesus leans slightly forward in his chair, attentive to my every move. Studying me intently. I’m uncomfortable. We’re close yet I feel distant from him in this setting. A familiar feeling of being at the Principal’s office when I was in school; which was quite frequent.

Jesus speaks first, “I’m human too.”

“Yes, but you’re perfect.”

“You seem to want to keep me in that perfect box of yours.”

Now I’m really uncomfortable. I lean back in the chair, obviously trying to create some distance between us.

Jesus leans in closer, (isn’t that just like him, chasing us down.)
“You realize I made you in my image.”

“Oh yes.” That’s an easy one to answer.

“You know I’m Love and Truth.”

“Yes.” Again easy, but for some reason I feel he’s setting me up. (I know sick, not the heart of God at all.)

Jesus looks me in the eyes. (If he leans any closer he’ll be in my lap). “Do you know how full of emotion I Am?”

Extremely uncomfortable, a fury of memories race across my mind, reminding me of all times I’d been called too emotional, intense; my intensity wears people down. Oh this is getting really uncomfortable.

Jesus breaks through wandering thoughts. “It’s what you do when your deeply moved that matters. I made you to be deeply moved, so I can move deeply in you and through you, emotions allow you to be vulnerable, I made you in my image. To be moved even to the point of rage again unbelief, evil and injustice. I’m teaching you how to be deeply moved to be deeply used.”

I convulse, retch, sobbing breaks me and I crumble. Freedom from condemnation runs through me like a cold steal rod, pulling out deep roots of misunderstood and misconception all at once. I fall back in the chair, all energy has been zapped from my body, peace floods the void where the roots resided.

Jesus whispers, “My love runs deep allowing me to be deeply moved, the rage within manifests as compassion to move the hand of our Father. I have felt every emotion you have. I made you my image, I’m human too, do you understand?”
There’s just enough strength left to nod. Inside my soul a light illuminates truth I’ve never known.

In silence across from Jesus I process, “deeply moved” there’s a sense of acceptance I’ve never experienced.

Jesus breaks the silence, (he’s really good at that), “I’ve never condemned you, never, today I’m setting you free from self-condemnation. Come here.”

I get up and Jesus stands to receive me. I buckle in his embrace. He holds me as if he’s never going to let go. I cling to him.

He whispers, “I’m deeply moved when you allow yourself to be condemned by man’s words.”

He clutches me tighter.

He walks me to the door and says, “I look forward to our next session. too. We’ll go much deeper next time. He smiles that familiar affirming smile. Is that okay?”
I nod.

As he leads me out the door he says, “Please don’t put me in that box.”
I nod. He smiles again.

John 11.38, Genesis 1.26, Psalm 37.12-13, John 11.35, Proverbs 6.16-19, John 3.16, Psalm 103.31, 1 Kings 3.10, Numbers 11.1, Exodus 4.14, Exodus 34.14, Matthew 14.14

God is being deeply moved in this hour, he is jealous for his people, His fury is for guarding the hearts of his children. He is about to give his response to being deeply moved over the events of this age. He is passionate about dealing with evil and healing broken hearts. His compassion will destroy strongholds and restore lost fortunes, the hearts of his children are his treasure chest. Jesus is human too and he’s deeply moved. Get ready to go deeper and deeper. Restorer of lost fortunes is about to move his hand over the earth.

What the enemy uses for evil God is turning for good. Sometimes our emotions are misunderstood when filtered through condemnation, on the other hand they can be a powerful tool used by God to display the goodness of his Kingdom. Healing is on the way and it going deep.

8.8.20 wmc


William Cuccia stands at the top of my list with Mario Murillo, two totally different men; each hearing God in their own way but equally important to the time we are in right now. Warning and Comfort … Hearing God’s warnings and feeling His great love and desire to be with us … so much to be learned and received from both men. I wish I could walk with the Lord and hear His words like William does. I read his words and try to put myself in the picture with him, standing next to him as Jesus speaks to him or puts his arm around him … such a blessing to all of us who don’t have that walk with Jesus. The blessing helps me do the work I have in the Kingdom with more courage … thank you!

WE’RE ALREADY IN A SOCIALIST DICTATORSHIP

“Before there can be a great awakening, there must be a rude awakening.” I wrote that in the beginning of my book, Vessels of Fire and Glory.First, the rude awakening:

We are already socialist. We are already under a leftist cultural dictatorship. We are not fighting to protect our freedom—we are fighting to get it back. ‘Free America’ left the building years ago. We are under a one-party rule. It’s been years since we were governed by our Constitution.

We are still “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” but we are prisoners of war in an anti-American system.

If, God forbid, Biden were to be elected, it would only change one thing: those who already control us will be able to take off their mask and abandon any pretense that our rights ever mattered.

I figured this out one day when I was flying home on a jet that was packed with members of a teacher’s union. They were gleefully describing the propaganda of transgenderism, the 1619 project, Common Core, and a host of other dynamic changes they were planning for all of our children. It was the devilish confidence that oozed from them that made me realize that a deep and intricate web had already been spun over America.

Their reckless confidence confirmed that they were only a fragment of a long-range strategy that was decades in the making.

How else can you explain Comey and Hillary not yet being in prison? How else can you explain the 20 plus trillion dollar debt? How else can you grasp the fact that Democrats will not so much as acknowledge the existence of Antifa? How else can you understand people such as Adam Schiff, AOC, or Jerry Nadler doing exactly zip for their constituents, so that they are free to create chaos in Congress? How else can you explain the virtual lock that the Deep State has on news and information? What else explains their power to cancel anyone they want? 

How else can you explain the domination of our cities by thugs? How else can you explain the Soviet-style mass closing of churches?

Donald Trump was the only thing they didn’t see coming. He simply was not a part of their plan. I still believe that Hillary had a lock—or, rather, a death grip, on the presidency. There is no human explanation for Trump’s victory. The ancient Romans borrowed a term from Greek drama: deus ex machina: literally, a god from the machine, a term that describes how an unexpected power or event suddenly intervenes to save a seemingly hopeless situation. Trump’s victory was exactly that.

But even Trump had no idea how deep and wide the control of the Left was. He discovered that there were traitors who had been planted everywhere in his administration. The upheavals had nothing to do with Trump’s lack of leadership. They had everything to do with Barack Obama. Obama is the greatest enemy of freedom to exist in our lifetime.This unchallenged control explains how drag queens suddenly appeared in public libraries all over America, reading to our children. It explains how universities became factories that inculcated Marxist doctrine, warping the young minds of entire generations, filling them with hate and lies. How else could we have the massive factories of human sacrifice known as Planned Parenthood, unless it was put in place and sustained by leftist tyranny, and paid for by your tax dollars?

Now that you’ve had your rude awakening, let me show you why there is hope for a great awakening. Why? Because, once you fully absorb the truth of how controlled we are, there is hope for you to muster the alarm and urgency that befits this hour.

A true grasp of our condition might kick the cowardice out of our pulpits. A true picture of how they control us, might awaken the righteous rage in our prayers and in our dealings with the people around us. You are a Christian Freedom fighter because, without your consent, your rights and the rights of your children have already been set aside.

Reelecting Donald Trump is not a grand finale, it is just the curtain going up on our battle to win our nation back from villains, liars, and devils. Even if Trump wins, we have a long war ahead of us, for there are many crime bosses still left for us to depose.

In 1776 preachers, intellectuals, captains of industry, inventors, and farmers came to an inescapable and unanimous conclusion: The American states must free themselves from British rule or we would never be free. Without that same epiphany, we who live in the second decade of this century cannot hope to wrest our liberty from the devil-driven Left.

So often I am asked, “But Mario what can we do?” You will know exactly what to do when God opens your eyes to the horrors that await your children and grandchildren.

It is time for American believers to be reintroduced to the author of the Bible.  The Jesus who raided the temple, turned over tables, and evicted evil-doers, was no twig-eating hippie, He was consumed with zeal for His Father’s house.

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” It is time to put on our armor!


GOOD NEWS

Here we go again, more truths from Mario that should wake us up with a shake of chills going down our back. This is a very real, reality he speaks of that is already upon us and he is totally correct in the fact the change over will be simply removing the masks and abandon all pretext of caring about you or your family … I don’t mean the corona virus masks either.

 

Pastor Che Ahn Sues California: Parents, Pastors and Businesses Beware!

Chen Ahn

Father, we ask that your create a hedge of protection around the U.S. and protect us from our enemies.

“First they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the Socialists and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”   –  Martin Niemoller, German Lutheran Pastor arrested and confined to Dachau camp but released in 1945 by the Allies.

When Jesus was asked about the end times and what were some of the signposts, he cited persecution, deception and division at the top of the list (Matt. 24).

Do you love the resources IFA has to offer? Share with your friends!

If the people of God are not prepared amidst the escalation of demonic activity, apostasy and hostility, multitudes will be offended at God. Jesus warned, “Then many will fall away… because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold” (Matt. 24:10;12). Lawlessness leads to lovelessness!

Dr. Che Ahn, senior leader of Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena, California; founder of the Harvest International Ministry (H.I.M.) with churches in 70 nations and 162 churches in California; and, International Chancellor of Wagner University recently faced fierce opposition from Governor Gavin Newsom to prohibit Christians singing in church services and hosting Bible studies and fellowship gatherings in homes! Knowing this has implications for Christians across America, Che prayed, sought counsel and knew it was time to stand up to the former mayor of leftist-leaning San Francisco.As one of my dearest friends for over 45 years, Che sat down recently with me to share the lessons learned during this journey. During four 15-minute “Here’s the Deal” podcasts on the Charisma Podcast Network Che explains in detail what led up to this defining moment as well as its’ implications for Christians across America.

Standing Strong on Biblical Grounds

Che is working with Mat Staver and Liberty Counsel, a Christian ministry protecting believers and their legal rights in disputes that arise such as this. Mat is a brilliant attorney as well as Liberty Counsel’s founder and legal director. Their team and Che will work to confront the governor and the state of California in this horrendous example of overreach and violation of constitutional rights.

Listen how Mat describes what is happening: “All home-based small group Bible studies and private worship among friends and family are illegal for 80% of the California population! The same order that bans religious gatherings in private homes allows and even encourages the insane anarchist riots, blocking highways and destroying city blocks… In California you can stand shoulder to shoulder with Marxists singing about killing cops, but you cannot worship with freedom in your own home. Don’t let America’s churches be driven underground!”

What’s happening in California is a foreshadowing of what is coming the way of Christians in these end times prior to the return of Jesus Christ. Leftist politicians, media, celebrities, educators and heretical religious leaders are all being manipulated by demonic forces to try and thwart advancement of the gospel of the kingdom at the close of the age.

Multitudes of Christians and Christian leaders have been deceived into believing that there is to be a “separation of church and state“ which means we steer clear of any engagement with our culture. Quoting a letter from Thomas Jefferson to inquiring Baptists, the enemy has misled millions down a path of appeasement and retreat from marketplace involvement. Tragically some leaders say, “We’re called to preach the gospel not get involved with ‘political’ issues like gay marriage, abortion the LGBTQ agenda or socialism. They’re too controversial…invite death threats…cause decline in members and giving.”

What is currently unfolding in California is intended by God to inspire Christians to discover the truth on what it means to be “salt” and “light” in our society which prevent societal rot. Christians are not called to be silent bystanders but rather active participants through prayer, lifestyle evangelism, voting and civic engagement.

Lawsuits are Unscriptural?

In my almost 50 years of Christian ministry, I have found myself involved in three lawsuits. Like Che Ahn, I am grateful for clear biblical teaching on this issue which becomes increasingly important for us in our post-Christian, lawsuit-ready culture.

Space does not permit a comprehensive treatment of this topic so I will recommend a classic resource by Christian attorney Ken Sande which has helped people in America and abroad. The book is entitled, “The Peacemaker – A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict” and is available on Amazon.

In his book, Ken addresses the subject, “When is it right to go to court?” He dispels the myth that Christians can never resort to a court of law to resolve disputes!

Explaining the scope of 1 Corinthians 6 which addresses lawsuits, Mr. Sande explains the view that the Bible forbids any and all lawsuits between people who profess to be Christians is erroneous. He states that it is “not supported by the express language of the passage, nor is it consistent with the rest of Scripture, which clearly indicates that God has established civil courts and expects his people to respect authority and cooperate with them in appropriate situations” (Appendix D).

Hope for the Hopeless

As an apostolic leader who has traveled extensively throughout the world in leadership training and church planting, Dr. Ahn addresses many relevant topics for Christians in the midst of our turmoil today. In a day in which we need all the encouragement we can get, learn from the lessons of this well-traveled man of God who has been successful in both family and ministry while impacting people on a global stage.

Here’s the Deal: In a day of cataclysmic change, Marxist upheaval and an avalanche of deceptive schemes intended to take down America as a Judeo-Christian nation, God is using extraordinary ambassadors like Dr. Che Ahn to awaken us and advance His kingdom purposes in our day.

A new website the Lord directed me too! Please read this … a must consider truth by several men of God. We must be aware and not turn our backs on the truth of what is happening in America as it is and will be happening all over the world so you cannot hide from the reality and our need to stand against this.

It Is Time To Cross Over!

 // Shiloh Fellowship // Patricia King

This was recorded in April but I believe it is very appropriate for now and connects with the prophetic words coming forth about August being the month when God is going to start moving faster and doors will start opening. This will minister to you if you just take a break and watch it through as she compares the Israelites crossing over as they left Egypt and how God provided all they needed in the middle of a barren desert and at times they wanted to go back to Egypt and the old ways but God continued to help them and supply their needs. Even when they reached the promised land there was still a struggle to take over from the inhabitants there … sounds a lot like what we are up against right now as God’s people trying to take back our land from the enemy!

GOOD NEWS

Prophetic Word: The Seer Gift and Anointing Returns

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. Acts 2:17–18 NIV

Since last Pentecost (May 31, 2020), I noticed the ability to see in the spirit started to increase. I heard the Lord say that the seer anointing is going to be re-released back to us on the 45th anniversary of the late seer-prophet Bob Jones’ major encounter in Heaven (August 8, 1975).

 

Forty-five years ago, Bob Jones died, and the Lord told him, “I’m sending you back to wake up the Church because I’m going to bring one billion youth to Myself in one of the greatest waves of all time. We need to get ready for the Billion Soul Harvest.”

Prophetic words coming now

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3 NIV

Bob thought it would happen in his lifetime, but it is a prophetic word that has been lingering. The Lord is saying, “It will certainly come and will not delay.”

My wife, Linda, and I started our ministry, InLight Connection, in 2001 after seeing a Bob Jones’ videotape on the Billion Soul Harvest. The Lord spoke to us that we would be part of fulfilling this word. We literally sold everything at age 42 and have been moving fully towards the calling of the Lord ever since. We later met and mentored with Bob Jones.

We have had to hold onto prophetic words, and we have been standing on the promises of the Lord for a global revival. What is coming starting in August is not Bob Jones’ mantle, but a fresh infusion of the seer type of gift that he operated in. The ability to see and discern in the Spirit through dreams, visions and prophetic words and acts is going to increase!

Army of Seers

The seer gift is not just seeing visions. It is using all the senses. We see this in Isaiah 29:10, He has sealed your eyes (the prophets); he has covered your heads (the seers).

The prophetic gift allows you to see what God is doing. But the seer gift operates like the head with all the senses operating through the Holy Spirit.

God is releasing this fresh, new seer anointing right now to help us get through the storm we have been in.

Houses of the Seer

Then Saul drew near to Samuel in the gate, and said, “Please tell me, where is the seer’s house?”

1 Samuel 9:18 NKJV

Over the years, the Lord has positioned strategic seer types of prophets who you can go to and get an accurate word of the Lord. Some of them operate in their homes, churches or small meetings.

The houses of the seer are going to increase in number both in-person and on the internet. Watch for internet-based prophetic seers to emerge.

Open your eyes and break fear

“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:16–17 NIV

Ask the Lord to open your eyes to see that those who are for us are greater than those against. Ask for the angelic realm and seer realm to be opened. As this happens. You will see the spirit of fear break off.

What to expect

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. Ephesians 1:17 NIV

The goal of the prophetic is to know Him better. So, the best thing to do is to let go of any expectations of what this might look like. Don’t expect to see the Lord or angels. Instead, look to God for what you need in your life. Ask Him to reveal His love to give you greater wisdom and revelation.

Blessings,

Doug Addison


August is to be a new beginning month so I am praying that it is that for all of you!

Faces in the Storm …

FACES IN THE STORM

William Cuccia
FACES IN THE STORM FILLED, FILLED WITH RAGE AND DISSONANCE … pound the shore with crashing waves of violence.
Jesus has positioned himself on the shore facing the raging storm.
I lay some distance from the shore barely able to see Jesus. The black sky covers me like an icy blanket. Not sure whether the chills are a result of the wind and waves or the fear I face from the onslaught of a storm that rages out of control.

I fix my eyes on Jesus. In the wind I hear, “This is my fight.”

Jesus my rock takes on a storm of faces that would horrify the cruelest of souls.

My position is vulnerable at best.

Nothing to hide behind, no obvious place to take cover; totally exposed. Left with only faith in Jesus to trust He’s enough to see me through this onslaught of oppression and violent rage of a storm.

Jesus holds his ground on the shore. He doesn’t back down to the crashing waves. The deafening sound would intimidate the most seasoned sailor. Yet Jesus is steadfast.

The raging storm consumes more shoreline as the tide rises. Jesus is unwavered by the confrontation of the violence that empowers this raging storm.

He holds his ground with confidence that is other worldly.

“I can’t take any more beating.”

The winds blow sand like shrapnel across my body. I ball up and take cover the best I can. My eyes squeezed tight, head tucked into my chest. My arms crossed over my face and head are my last line of defense.

Jesus seems farther away than ever. It’s as though we’ve lost contact. Trying to cry out is futile. The storm drowns my voice.

“This could be it.” Prayers are feeble silent thoughts in my head. Trust ebbs away with each crashing wave.

It’s pitch black. It must be the darkest hour of the night. Jesus is my only hope, my rock; holding His ground; fighting on my behalf.

The violence vibrates my soul, shakes me to the core. I feel as though my bones are breaking apart inside me.

Deep in my soul I hear it again, “This is my fight.”

There’s nothing left, I’ve succumb to inevitable defeat, anticipating the weight of the crashing rage overtaking me at any moment.

I anchor myself into a tight ball for the final blow. No strength left to resist. Completely vulnerable I trust Jesus is still in position.

Only faith can see now.

A ray of hope pierces this dark hour; dawn is about to break.

Opening my eyes, there’s Jesus still standing at the water’s edge. He appears to have fought the raging storm entire night.

He turns to face me.

Calm waters roll up the shoreline washing his feet. His face stained salt deposits. He appears to have aged through the night. The Storm has taken its toll but expression on his face exudes victory.

Jesus walks up the shore to me, with each step the light of dawn shines brighter. I feel the warmth of his presence as he approaches. Morning has broken and the storm is at bay. The faces in the storm have washed away with the tide.

Jesus kneels by my side and whispers, “This fight is mine.”

I can smell the salt on his face. He has faithfully fought on my behalf. His compassion has not failed me. It’s a new morning and I’ve been protected and preserved, my Savior is with me.

Jesus sits by my side as we watch the sunrise. I’ve never seen the ocean so calm; so still. Peace overwhelms my soul. I lay with my head in his lap as he tenderly strokes my back. The sun glistens off the surface of the water.

I swear I can hear a choir singing, “God is so good, He’s so good to me.”

I close my eyes; the ocean breeze is glorious.

“The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.”

Lamentations 3.20-26, Psalm 18.2, Isaiah 25.4-5, Nahum 1.7, Isaiah 4.6, Psalm 89.8-9, James 1.2-5, 2 Corinthians 4.8-10, Psalm 107.28-31

“Because of the Lord’s great love we will not consumed. In the darkest hour of the night He will stand and fight on our behalf. He will prevail Victorious and a shout of praise will be heard across the earth.”

“It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.”

Uh-Oh: Chinavirus Lockdowns Are Pushing The Growth Of Other Serious Diseases

Green Bacteria Colony

Written by Wes Walker on August 4, 2020

They keep telling us how this is whole Chinavirus insanity is all about ‘saving lives’. But what about all those EXTRA people these extreme measures will kill?

Chinavirus has a survival rate in the high 90% range. But there are OTHER illnesses with a far more serious lethality than this one. And they are running rampant while the world is preoccupied with its shutdown.

It begins with a mild fever and malaise, followed by a painful cough and shortness of breath. The infection prospers in crowds, spreading to people in close reach. Containing an outbreak requires contact tracing, as well as isolation and treatment of the sick for weeks or months.

This insidious disease has touched every part of the globe. It is tuberculosis, the biggest infectious-disease killer worldwide, claiming 1.5 million lives each year.

Until this year, TB and its deadly allies, H.I.V. and malaria, were on the run. The toll from each disease over the previous decade was at its nadir in 2018, the last year for which data are available.

Yet now, as the coronavirus pandemic spreads around the world, consuming global health resources, these perennially neglected adversaries are making a comeback.

“Covid-19 risks derailing all our efforts and taking us back to where we were 20 years ago,” said Dr. Pedro L. Alonso, the director of the World Health Organization’s global malaria program.

It’s not just that the coronavirus has diverted scientific attention from TB, H.I.V. and malaria. The lockdowns, particularly across parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America, have raised insurmountable barriers to patients who must travel to obtain diagnoses or drugs, according to interviews with more than two dozen public health officials, doctors and patients worldwide. NYT

Travel restrictions have made it hard for sick people to seek treatment, especially if they need to go a long way to get it. They have also disrupted supply chains, making it harder for clinics to keep their supplies.

About 80 percent of tuberculosis, H.I.V. and malaria programs worldwide have reported disruptions in services, and one in four people living with H.I.V. have reported problems with gaining access to medications, according to U.N. AIDS. Interruptions or delays in treatment may lead to drug resistance, already a formidable problem in many countries.

…Malaria season has begun in West Africa, which has 90 percent of malaria deaths in the world, but the normal strategies for prevention — distribution of insecticide-treated bed nets and spraying with pesticides — have been curtailed because of lockdowns.

According to one estimate, a three-month lockdown across different parts of the world and a gradual return to normal over 10 months could result in an additional 6.3 million cases of tuberculosis and 1.4 million deaths from it. –NYT

I suppose that ‘if it saves just one life’ line doesn’t extend to people in the developing world.


Something I wanted to share here as Facebook would mark it “Fake News” or worse and knock it off. Have had a few times of that and they have a strike 3 and you’re out plan for those they disagree with so have to be careful. Maybe if you are interested you can forward this on to other blog sites! I really believe this has all gone way too far and so many people are in danger from the rules and misinformation from those who are using this “supposed pandemic” for control. I know from actual talk with someone very dear to me who is stuck in Africa. He got Malaria a few weeks ago and by God’s grace he survived but it was very difficult to get the medicine and he is also having a problem getting food due to lockdowns. Malaria, TB, H.I.V. and LOCKDOWN with no medicine and no food will kill many more than the “supposed pandemic.” I pray for my special friend continually for God’s protection.

‘We Are Standing for the Cross’: Christians Unite as Antifa Activists Threaten to Tear Down Cross at Private College

A Christian college in Eugene, Oregon is standing against radical activists who want to deface or tear down a cross that has stood on the campus for decades.

Members of Antifa claim the cross is a racist symbol and they want it removed from the private campus of New Hope Christian College.

In a Facebook post, the college wrote that the cross embodies hope and the unconditional love from our Heavenly Father.

“The history of the cross and how it came to reside on our campus has been well documented over the years, and there is no evidence to suggest our cross has direct roots to racism other than it once resided on Skinner Butte, the same location where racist events were held in the 1920s. People referring to our cross as the ‘KKK’ cross is false.”

The school says the cross was not around at that time and didn’t even exist until many decades later. “From 1934-1964, wooden crosses were displayed on Skinner Butte; these crosses were not associated with the racist activities of the 1920s but simply powerful symbols of hope set high above the City of Eugene.”

Members of the Christian community arrived at the college last Friday to pray for God’s protection over the cross and against the enemy.

Tim Ravan with Global Connectors came to New Hope to join the prayer movement and support the college. He told CBN News that “without intercession…nothing happens.”

“There is a strong core of people standing for what is right,” he said. “This is kingdom business and the church has to be awakened. We are standing for the cross.”

Ravan said hundreds of people gathered over the weekend, including non-believers who came to the cross just to thank everyone for their efforts.

“Cars were driving by, honking their horns and people were saying thank you,” he added. “Non-believers were there to support the school.”

“People were really responding, standing up, and doing something. This is really impacting the nation, it’s a line in the sand,” Ravan concluded.

Pastor Wayne Cordeiro with New Hope told CBN News that the presence of God was evident as they surrounded the cross and prayed for His protection.

“We worshipped for two hours in the midst of it,” he said. “We had a safety and security team, the majority of us were at the cross worshipping and praising.”

Even though activists did not deface the cross, Pastor Cordeiro said the college will “remain vigilant in case protesters come back.”

Antifa agitators were also in Portland over the weekend where they burned Bibles and an American flag in front of a federal courthouse.

The riots have drawn thousands to the city park in front of Portland’s federal courthouse. Some say they are protesting for racial justice, others want to defund the police nationwide.

Reporting from the scene, CBN News Contributing Reporter Chuck Holton said it’s clear that most of those participating in the riots don’t want to abolish the police but instead want to act like the police to enforce their own agenda.

Could not get the video in so put the link where first story came from so you could hear what the pastor says.

I just keep saying what has happened to America that we now have to guard our churches and crosses like Christians in a communist nation like China? We must do something to stop the takeover of all that we believe in and hold sacred and Godly in our lives and our families lives. Why do Christians have to stand guard around their churches, colleges, crosses and families as they will start attacking the Christians themselves next if allowed to continue.

This Indian Slum Contained a Possible COVID-19 Disaster with hydroxychloroquine

(American Thinker) — On July 9, 2020, Asia’s biggest and densest slum shocked the world by announcing just one new positive COVID-19 case despite being a cluster and hotspot.

Dharavi is no ordinary slum. It is one of the densest in the world, housing more than a million people. It provided some of the background for the Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire.

Dharavi contains pockets where as many as 650,000 people are crammed into 2.5 square kilometers. In comparison, New York City has only around 95,605 people for 2.5 square kilometers.

India feared the worst when a cluster outbreak of COVID-19 was reported in Dharavi. It could have become the biggest COVID-19 disaster zone in the world. But by using proactive measures, Dharavi contained the virus.

Media around the world, like the Los Angeles Times, have reported the success. Even the World Health Organization praised Dharavi.

Reports credit the huge turnaround to various factors. Most focused on Dharavi’s use of widespread testing and contact tracing. One is the use of an anti-malarial drug. But they ignored the policy most responsible. Indian doctors used hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for prophylaxis (preventive) treatment — the same drug the American media have politicized.

Dharavi’s COVID-19 infection rate dropped drastically from April through June. In July, new infections were very low, almost reaching zero on July 9.

Officials have credited this turnaround to “[a] combination of hydroxychloroquine, vitamin D, and zinc tablets along with homeopathic medicines.”

HCQ has been widely used across India to treat early-stage COVID-19. It is also prescribed for prophylaxis among those who have come into contact with people who have tested positive.

In India, HCQ has always been legal. The government’s official COVID-19 task force, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), highly recommends it for high-risk people like medical practitioners.

The ICMR guidelines recommend prophylactic use of HCQ for the following categories:

  1. “all asymptomatic healthcare workers involved in containment and treatment of COVID19 and asymptomatic healthcare workers working in non-COVID hospitals/non-COVID areas of COVID hospitals/blocks”;
  2. “symptomatic frontline workers, such as surveillance workers deployed in containment zones and paramilitary/police personnel involved in COVID-19 related activities”; and
  3. “symptomatic household contacts of laboratory confirmed cases.”

In other words, HCQ is for anyone with the slightest chance of contracting COVID-19.

Not all are on board with its use. When doctors began using HCQ in Dharavi, anti-HCQ advocates approached the Bombay high court. But the court ruled in favor of HCQ:

Now, in a given case, if abiding by the law stricto sensu and waiting for a clinical trial of a drug would result in loss of valuable time for saving a patient and the choice is between the devil and the deep sea, i.e., no other drug except an HCQ sort of a drug, though not clinically tried for treating the disease, is the last option left for a doctor to save the life of such patient, should the doctor fold his hands and leave the patient to the mercy of the Almighty on the ground that the relevant drug has not been registered for use as prophylaxis? The answer, we are minded to hold, should be in the negative.

The court could have informed the challenger about the track record of efficacy of HCQ. ICMR’s observational study of 334 health care workers at AIIMS hospital (10 minutes from my home in Delhi) revealed that 248 who took HCQ prophylaxis had lower incidence of infection than those who didn’t. A similar study in three other hospitals in Delhi had similar results.

There have been only 27,497 COVID-19 deaths in India through July 19. With a population of 1.3 billion, that is an extremely low death rate of 19 per million, or 0.002 percent. (That is much lower than for tuberculosis, which kills 440,000 each year in India.)

The use of HCQ could be one reason why India’s death rate is dramatically lower than that of some European countries, like Spain, with 607 deaths per million, and France, with 461.

The 139,659 deaths reported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control by July 19 represent a rate about 20 times India’s.

Doctors have shown that HCQ, in combination with zinc and azithromycin, can be very effective in early stages of COVID-19:

Risk stratification-based treatment of COVID-19 outpatients as early as possible after symptom onset with the used triple therapy, including the combination of zinc with low dose hydroxychloroquine, was associated with significantly less hospitalizations and 5 times less all-cause deaths.

HCQ may be saving millions across the globe except in countries where it remains controversial. White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy director Peter Navarro pointed out the same last week:

It’s the politicization of this medicine by the mainstream media and portions of the medical community that somehow made this a battle between President Trump and them and created this undue fear and hysteria over a drug, a medicine that has been used for over 60 years relatively safely and is regularly prescribed to pregnant women if they are going to a malaria zone.

India has exported tons of HCQ to the U.S, Canada, and dozens of other countries in the past few months. Despite having stockpiles, these nations have resisted its use. The American media and bureaucracies should move beyond their obsession with politics and honestly consider HCQ’s efficacy.

Well as I continue to walk against the flow and continue to believe in freedom of thought, information, writing and speaking … I put this article on Facebook along with 127.2k other people and I wonder if they have been busy taking them all off. The statement I made as I put it up was: “I hope that Facebook will leave this in. People have the right to read information and make their own decisions and opinions on it. This is news and we do have freedom of speech, of any news, pros and cons … that is our way of life, our right to decide what we want to read or think.” It has been up for 10 minutes so far so we will see. That is what to me is so sad about the Social Media controlling news, ideas, choices … it is so much like the book 1984 written by George Orwell in 1949 that is seems like a prophetic word whether he intended it that way or not. George Orwell’s novel 1984 was written in the aftermath of World War II, during tense and shifting political climates. The novel depicts a dystopian future of a society bereft of reason in which the citizens of Oceania live in misery, under constant surveillance.” That feels like where we nearly are today. I woke this morning thinking of how not Covid-19 as much, as the government restrictions because of it,  have stolen our hope. “Where there is no vision, the people perish” — Proverbs 29:18 Through vision comes hope and right now there is little hope amongst the people. And as this article states the governments and media are politicizing our health by restricting choice of a medicine proven a million times over to be good and used for 50 plus years.
