Amazing Time - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2020/08/09/amazing-time-by-daymond-duck/
FYI: My wife is in the hospital with Covid, and we would appreciate your prayers. I don't expect this to impact my writing, but if I miss one or two articles, please understand.
Last week's article, "The King is Coming," was mostly Scripture and the relevance of Psalm 2.
This article contains some of the more important things that got passed over last week, plus a few other events that may be significant.
One, on July 22, 2020, the Democratic Party released its 2020 platform.
Concerning annexation of about one-third of Judea and Samaria (Land that God gave to Israel forever), "Democrats oppose any unilateral steps by either side-including annexation-that undermine prospects for two states."
"Democrats will restore U.S.-Palestinian diplomatic ties and critical assistance to the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Gaza, consistent with U.S. law" (some of this assistance was cut off because part of it was being used to kill Israelis).
"We believe that while Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations, it should remain the capital of Israel, an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths."
The Democrats are in favor of the two-state solution, which means they will divide the land of Israel, they will start giving the PA hundreds of millions of dollars per year again, they have no problem with putting Jerusalem up for negotiations again, and they will restore the nuclear deal that Pres. Obama negotiated with Iran (when he sent billions of dollars on pallets of cash to Iran on a plane).
Two, on July 23, 2020, it was reported that Pres. Trump's former U.S. Middle East Envoy, Jason Greenblatt, said Pres. Trump's Peace Proposal requires Israel to commit to setting aside territory for a potential Palestinian State in exchange for U.S. approval of Israel's annexation of about 30% of Judea and Samaria.
Most Israelis are in favor of annexing part of Judea and Samaria, but they are against setting aside territory for a Palestinian state on part of the remainder because the Scriptures say God gave it to them.
Many Evangelical Christians are against it too because it would divide the Promised Land, and God has warned the world not to do that.
It looks like the two main political parties are committed to dividing the Promised Land, but one party is willing to give more away than the other.
Three, on July 22, 2020, Israel appropriated $960 million to boost Israel's defenses on its northern border with Syria and Lebanon.
Tensions are rising, and the Israeli military believes Israel needs more Infantry and equipment on its northern border right away.
A war could fulfill several long-expected end-of-the-age prophecies.
Four, on July 27, 2020, 3 to 4 members of Hezbollah crossed Israel's border with Lebanon and traveled several meters inside Israeli territory.
There was an exchange of fire that lasted about two hours.
Hezbollah denies the attack, said they will attack in the future, no Israelis were hurt, the IDF is on high alert, and Israel has built up her forces along the border.
Five, on July 19, 2020, Israel, Italy, Greece, and Cyprus agreed to lay a mostly underwater 1,242-mile gas pipeline from Israel's oil fields in the Mediterranean to Europe.
Russia, Iran, Turkey, and others are opposed to this pipeline because Israel will get a substantial amount of their gas business (Israel will have more silver and gold, cattle and goods in the latter years and latter days just like the Bible says; Ezek. 38:8, 13, 16).
The U.S. supports the pipeline because it will make the EU less dependent upon Russia for natural gas (the pipeline is expected to be completed in 2025).
Six, on July 22, 2020, an Israeli rabbi said a world government will rule the world for 9 months.
He called this world government the New World Order.
He said the Messiah will reveal Himself on Yom Kippur 2021 (Sept. 15-16, 2021).
He said the Messiah will disappear and then reappear on Yom Kippur 2022 (Oct. 4-5, 2022).
He said Moses received the Torah (Law) in the desert and we will receive the Messiah in the desert.
He said Messiah will make His Second Coming between Yom Kippur 2022-2023.
My first reaction was no one knows when the Messiah will appear, this is false teaching, and I will ignore it.
Then a friend pointed out that Jesus said, "if they say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth; Behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not" (Matt. 24:26).
Every jot and tittle of God's Word will be fulfilled, including a false prophet predicting that the Messiah will be received in the desert (I choose to believe him not).
Seven, concerning the New World Order or world government, on July 18, 2020, UN Sec. Gen. Guterres said, "Today, in demonstrations for racial equality (I call it rioting and looting in Portland. They recently burned a Bible and the U.S. flag there.) ... in campaigns against hate speech... in the struggles of people claiming their rights and standing up for future generations... we see the beginnings of a new movement."
He was talking about a movement to bring in "more-fair globalization," which means a more-fair world government that takes into account the rights of future generations as well as the rights of those that are living today.
Globalists believe we need a world government to reduce the population of the earth, prevent the depletion of the world's resources, stop war, control global warming, and more.
Of course, they intend to be the people that decide who lives or dies, who can buy food and who can't, who we worship and who we cannot worship, etc.
Eight, on July 21, 2020, U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo told UK officials that he has "informed intelligence" that the World Health Organization (WHO) has been "bought by the Chinese government," and he has two reports that say it is a "political, not a science-based organization."
The WHO denies the allegations, and Pres. Trump has given the WHO a one-year notice that the U.S. is pulling out of that corrupt group.
The coming world government will be very dangerous, and America must not let UN organizations whose leaders are owned and run by Communist China or any other group dictate U.S. policy (force economic lockdowns on the U.S., Church lockdowns, open U.S. borders to terrorists, or anything else).
Nine, on July 27, 2020, Dave Hodges reported that the UN has ordered Pres. Trump to withdraw America's troops from Portland (they are federal agents, not troops).
Those that deny that a world government is rising should explain why the UN thinks it has the authority to order the Pres. of the U.S. to do anything.
"What kind of orders will the UN give to the U.S. if it becomes a world government in 2030?"
If the UN world government goes into effect in 2030, the Church won't be here, but the possessions of those left behind will be redistributed, world leaders will persecute and kill those that don't agree with them, 2/3 to 3/4 of those on earth will die, and it will be worse than anything that has ever happened on earth (Matt. 24:22).
Ten, George Soros is funneling hundreds of millions of dollars through his foundations to groups (Antifa, Black Lives Matter, etc.) that are rioting in the U.S.
On July 27, 2020, it was reported that he will funnel $50 million into the campaigns of Democrats before the 2020 elections.
Be aware of these facts: most of the violence is occurring in cities and states that are run by Democrats, Soros is funneling money to the rioters, and he wants to elect more Democrats (these are facts that can be checked, not partisan politics).
Many have noticed that the elected officials in these cities are of one spirit with the rioters and looters, even sympathizing with them and calling their violence destruction of property, and injury of people a peaceful protest.
Most Christians are aware that lawlessness, deceit, and lies are of Satan (Jn. 8:44).
U.S. citizens need to carefully decide if these are the kind of leaders they want because the violence could come to their house, church, etc., and it will probably be useless to call the police.
Eleven, on July 27, 2020, it was reported that Google is developing smart tattoos to be placed on humans that can be used like the touchpad on a smartphone.
A person will be able to touch or swipe the surface of a tattoo on their arm and trigger responses like they get on their smartphone (there will be sensors in the tattoo).
This could mean that people will soon be able to have a mark on their body that can be used to buy and sell (It will function like the Mark of the Beast; Rev. 13:15-18).
Twelve, on July 27, 2020, it was reported that a study of Black Lives Matter interviews and writings reveals a plan that does little to improve the lives of black people because it is mostly about destroying capitalism and life in the U.S. as we have known it (they are terrorists, not peaceful protestors).
Thirteen, Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, Cal., pastored by John MacArthur, has decided to disobey the Governor's restrictions on worship.
The church expects the Governor to move against their church (persecute the church), and it would be good if people prayed for them.
Sadly, some politicians think Christians gathering in church is a threat, but people gathering to riot, loot, burn, and injure the police are not a threat (depraved minds).
Fourteen, on July 30, 2020, it was reported that a lobby has been established in the Israeli Knesset to strengthen the sovereignty and presence of Jews on the Temple Mount.
The group says they plan to push for Jews to have more rights on the Temple Mount, but many Jews and Christians know that the Temple will be rebuilt.
Fifteen, a friend e-mailed a July 16, 2020 document from the National Center for Biotechnology (part of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, a branch of the National Institutes of Health) titled "5G Technology and induction of coronavirus in skin cells."
As I understand it, the authors of the article are saying 5G is the main cause of coronaviruses in biological cells.
Sixteen, the next time you are thinking about buying a pair of tennis shoes, know that Nike shoes may be made by slave labor in China.
Nike denies it, but at the same time, Nike is accusing the U.S. of mistreating minorities; it is being reported that China is enslaving people, selling slaves to companies; and at least one of those companies makes Nike shoes.
Finally, the U.S. is under attack, freedom in the U.S. (and the world) is threatened by the globalist push to bring down Trump so they can have their world government up and running by 2030.
In his book Shadowland, best-selling author Tom Horn calls it "a war for the soul of a nation and the future of the world."
God didn't give the U.S. a polished politician with a forked-tongue and decades of experience to oppose Satan's powerful globalist puppets.
God gave the U.S. a rough and tumble, non-politician with no experience in double-speak and ear-tickling words to oppose Satan's powerful globalist minions.
If the globalists succeed in bringing Trump down, we will never get back the America we knew.
One reason why God revealed these signs is that He wants people to accept Jesus before the Rapture so they will not have to go through the Tribulation Period.
God reveals the future to His servants the prophets before He acts, and there is good reason to believe that He is now revealing events that are soon to come (Amos 3:7).
On July 27, 2020, Dr. Franklin Graham posted this message on Facebook, "I would encourage every person who loves this country to pray and to turn out by the millions to vote. Don't just watch the news and be depressed or shake your head about what's going on-stand up for America! Vote for leaders who love this country, defend the Constitution, and who support law and order. Most importantly, pray and ask for God's mercy and help for our nation."

Israel's August 4 Miracle - Alex Traiman/JNS.ORG -
Many of Israel's modern military accomplishments have defied all odds and logic. Surprise victories in Israel's War of Independence in 1948, Six-Day War in 1967 and Yom Kippur War in 1973 will forever stand among Israel's most miraculous and unlikely historical achievements.
This past week, Israel may have recorded another security miracle, but one unlikely to be entered into Israeli history books. The reason? It did not take place on Israeli soil, or at the hands of the Israeli military.
When a massive stockpile of weapons-grade ammonium nitrate exploded in the Beirut port on Aug. 4, it was without a doubt a tragedy of horrific proportions. At least 150 innocent civilians were killed and thousands more wounded. The damage to the city of Beirut, and to Lebanon's main seaport, will take years to repair.
Yet for Israel, there is one major consolation: The stockpile of ammonium nitrate and the collateral damage it caused may well have been earmarked for Israel.
While Israel and the rest of the international community have been offering humanitarian aid to Lebanon in the wake of one of the largest explosions since the Chernobyl nuclear reactor blew in 1986, the greatest aid to the people of Lebanon would be the complete disarmament and expulsion of Hezbollah.
Israel should now be staunchly making the case to the international community that weapons in the hands of irresponsible actors--and particularly international terror organizations--can only end in the death of innocent civilians.
It was only one week prior to the massive explosion that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz held a joint press conference following an attempt by Hezbollah to infiltrate Israel's northern border.
Netanyahu stated, "We take a grave view of this attempt to infiltrate our territory. Hezbollah and Lebanon bear full responsibility for this incident and any attack from Lebanese territory against Israel. Hezbollah should know that it is playing with fire."
When terrorists play with fire, the results are almost inevitably going to turn deadly.
Just several months ago, Israel's Mossad security agency reportedly provided Germany with significant evidence of Hezbollah's weapons storage, including ammonium nitrate. It was this information that led Germany to formally ban Hezbollah from operating in its country.
Similarly, The Daily Telegraph revealed in 2019 that U.K. intelligence agencies, acting on a tip from a foreign intelligence agency (the Mossad according to a senior Israeli official), found some three tons of ammonium nitrate in a raid on four London properties back in 2015. The ammonium nitrate was stored in thousands of disposable ice packs.
In 2019, the IDF published a video detailing Hezbollah's precision-guided missile program. It is currently estimated that Hezbollah has over 150,000 mortars, rockets and missiles stockpiled for use against Israel.
Security experts have similarly indicated that it was an initial explosion of stockpiled weapons in an adjacent portside hangar that acted as the detonator for the large stockpile of ammonium nitrate.
In 2018, ahead of a United Nations Security Council meeting, Netanyahu called Hezbollah's stockpiling of weapons intended for Israel among Lebanese civilians "a double war crime."
In 2016, Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah gave a chilling speech indicating that an explosion of ammonium nitrate in Israel's Haifa port could carry the same explosive charge as a nuclear bomb.
During the 34-day military conflict between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006, the terrorist organization fired approximately 4,000 rockets and missiles against Israel, at a rate of approximately 100 per day.
And Hezbollah has been using explosives to perpetrate terror attacks for decades. A bombing of American and French peacekeeping forces in 1983 killed 307. The explosive blast was reported to be the equivalent of over 21,000 pounds of TNT.
Acting as a primary state-sponsored terror actor of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hezbollah has wreaked havoc across Lebanon and Syria, and remains the most lethal threat against Israeli population centers.
For the last several years, Iran has been consistently smuggling weapons to its terror proxy, via a land bridge across Iraq and Syria, through the Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport, and most notably through the Beirut seaport, where the ammonium nitrate was stored in a warehouse adjacent to the water.
While grieving over the deaths of innocent civilians, Israel must be extremely grateful that this stockpile was not detonated anywhere close to its own border. And now seeing firsthand how much damage can be caused by ammonium nitrate, one need only imagine the damage that could be caused should Iran successfully smuggle a nuclear weapon into Hezbollah's hands.
During the first Gulf War of 1991, Saddam Hussein fired 42 Scud missiles at Israel. During the barrage, only one Israeli reportedly died--of a heart attack due to a nearby explosion. The lack of damage to Israel was a phenomenon of miraculous proportions.
That nearly 3,000 tons of weapons-grade ammonium nitrate likely earmarked for use against Israel will now never reach its intended target is a similar miracle.
Yet despite the severe damage caused by Hezbollah's "work accident," the stockpiling of weapons against Israel remains a grave threat. A campaign to fully disarm Hezbollah must be immediately launched.
For as long as Hezbollah continues to have missiles pointed at Israel, the Jewish state will live in constant fear of attack. Peace in the region will never be reached until Hezbollah is fully disarmed.
Iran: China's Newest Colony? - by Majid Rafizadeh -
A slogan in which Iran's ruling mullahs have taken pride since they came to power in 1979 is: "Neither East nor West." The Iranian regime has long boasted about its independence from both Western and Eastern powers. A new secret deal with China, however, appears to be giving Beijing significant control over Iran.
The 25-year secret deal, which looks like a colonial agreement, grants China significant rights over the nation's resources. Leaked information reveals that one of its terms is that China will be investing nearly $400 billion in Iran's oil, gas and petrochemicals industries. In return, China will get priority to bid on any new project in Iran that is linked to these sectors. China will also receive a 12% discount and it can delay payments by up to two years. China will also be able to pay in any currency it chooses. It is also estimated that, in total, China will receive discounts of nearly 32%.
Another secret element of the agreement has a military dimension: China will deploy 5,000 members of its security forces on the ground in Iran. These concessions are unprecedented in the history of the Islamic Republic. The deal is a clear win for China; the $400 billion will be invested over 25 years, which is a small amount for the second-largest economy in the world. China will also have full authority over Iran's islands, gain access to Iran's oil at a highly discounted rate and increase its influence and presence in almost every sector of Iranian industry, including telecommunications, energy, ports, railways, and banking. China, incidentally, is the world's largest importer of oil.
Even some of Iran's politicians and state-owned newspapers have begun criticizing the deal. A headline in the Iranian newspaper Arman-e Melli, for example, surprisingly criticized the government: "Iran is not Kenya or Sri Lanka (to be colonized by China)."
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned countries in a speech to diplomats and business leaders at the UN Economic Commission for Africa in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, in February 2020, that they "should be wary of authoritarian regimes with empty promises. They breed corruption, dependency." An article in the Iranian newspaper Hamdeli, by the Iranian journalist Shirzad Abdollahi, was published with the title, "Will Iran become a Chinese colony?" He warned officials:
"The smiles of the Chinese and the Russians are as harmful and destructive to Iran as Trump's frown. The Americans are openly expressing their views, but the Chinese and the Russians are pursuing their own interests in the guise of diplomatic compliments. China, Russia, the United States, Europe, and all countries are pursuing their own national interests in relation to Iran, and romantic or hostile relations with Iran are meaningless."
Mahmoud Ahmadi Bighash, a hardline member of Iran's parliament, warned on a state-run TV channel that he believes "transferring full authority of Iranian islands to China" was included in the proposed agreement.
Even former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad pointed to the danger of the deal:
"It is not valid to enter into a secret agreement with foreign parties without considering the will of the Iranian nation and against the interests of the country, and the Iranian nation will not recognize it."
Ahmadinejad told the ruling mullahs:
"Do you own the country, while auctioning the country without the knowledge of the people? We made a revolution so that no issue would be hidden from the nation, and no one would consider themselves as the owners of the nation."
The domestic response of outrage to the deal is being echoed across Iran. Some Iranians are comparing the deal with China to the humiliating and colonial deals made prior to the Islamic Revolution. In 1872, for instance, Iran's ruler Nasir Al-Din Shah gave British banker Baron Julius de Reuter significant control over Persian roads, factories, extraction of resources, telegraphs, mills, and other public works in exchange for some of the revenue for 20 years. The Reuter concession was so extensive that even famous imperialists such as Lord Curzon characterized it as "the most complete grant ever made of control of resources by any country to a foreigner."
The ruling mullahs are selling off the country to China, just as some African governments did. Beijing appears more than happy to make deals with dictators, ignore their human rights abuses and plunder their nations to advance its own global hegemonic ambitions.
A Few Thoughts - By Grant Phillips -
I don't usually address miscellaneous events that get my attention, but these just jumped out at me. I am not referring to national events. Most are local that I feel have a message for each of us.
KEEP THE CHANGE, YOU FILTHY ANIMAL (You might recall this phrase from the movie Home Alone.)
Since I'm retired, I'm the designated grocery shopper for the family. I've done this for several years now and probably know where items are as well or better than the employees of the stores I visit. It's not uncommon for me to visit two or even three stores to purchase our groceries and household items. It all depends on who has the better quality and lower prices. By the way, lower prices aren't always the best buy. To me at least, quality often wins out.
Anyway, after checking out at one national chain grocery store one morning, I was surprised to learn that they no longer give any change, such as pennies, nickels, dimes, etc., only paper money. Oh yes, this chain store and others are also allowing the customer to round up their cash purchase to the nearest dollar, but why won't they round down instead?
Just minutes ago, I read that if a business in West Virginia wants to ban cash (paper money and coins) due to COVID-19, it is allowed. The business or businesses must post a notice on their storefront in order to not violate the Consumer Protection Act and other laws. So far, no businesses have followed suit.
I don't know about you, but I smell a rat. My sniffer may not be as sharp in my older years, but even I can smell the pungent stink of 'control of the masses.' It makes me think of the death-angel mist seen in the movie Ten Commandments, as it slowly creeps from house to house.
APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH
The Bible says, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).
It is now mid-week, and already, this week, one man was killed while mowing. His riding mower fell over on him. Another man died when his UTV that he was riding hit a tree. A woman was drowned while swimming in a pond.
I may be wrong, but I believe all three of these deaths occurred Tuesday of this week. It is so sad when hearing of someone dying. My first thought is, "Were they saved?" Then I think of their family.
All three of these deaths were obviously unexpected.
Each of them got out of bed that morning not knowing that it would be their last day on this earth.
One man walked out of his house, got on his riding mower to mow the grass, and his own mower killed him.
Another man walked out of his house, got on his UTV for a day of enjoyment, and was killed by the very thing that brought him happiness.
A woman leaves her house and decides to go swimming in the pond, only to never touch land again ... alive.
I believe I would be safe in saying that these freak accidents happen quite often around here, especially in the summertime. For example, it seems all too common to hear or read of a body being recovered from Lake Cumberland or Laurel Lake.
How many left their house that morning and were ready to meet God?
It is now just a few days later, and another man has died instantly when he rode his motorcycle into a tree. On the same day, a second man died instantly when he drove his car into a tree.
Folks, death can come without warning to any of us. Are you prepared to meet God?
WHO IS YOUR HERO?
My wife and I watched a movie one evening called Seven Pounds. Will Smith played a fellow named Ben who chose to do something very good for seven people. I won't reveal any more about it in case you might want to watch it also. (You may want to click the fast-forward button at one point, as we did.)
I will say that the receivers of his gifts were very grateful, as would be expected. Have you ever considered how grateful we, who have received the greatest gift of all, should be?
God came down to earth, was born of a virgin, and lived among us. As a side thought, think about this: He is the only baby who ever named Himself before He was even born (Luke 1:31). That isn't all. He also died for our sins, was buried and rose on the third day so that you and I could be saved if we would believe in Him (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
What Jesus did for us can't be topped by any act by anyone. Every morning I awake I am thankful that I belong to God Almighty, and it's all possible because of what Jesus did for me ... and you. It really doesn't matter what happens with me today because I know I am in His hands, and there is no safer place to be.
I must mention a brave little boy named Bridger Walker. He is from Wyoming, and he is six years old. You may have read about him.
Apparently, a German Shepherd mix lunged at his four-year-old sister. Little Bridger shielded his sister and took her place as he was viciously attacked. He had to undergo a two-hour surgery that required 90 stitches to his face. His dad asked him why he jumped in between his sister and the dog. His response was, "If someone had to die, I thought it should be me."
Of course you know where I'm going with this. Sin has attacked every person born upon this earth (except Jesus). On the cross of Golgotha (Calvary), Jesus jumped between us and the hounds from hell and took our place. Only He who is without sin could pay our debt. God had to judge sin, and Jesus took all the wrath of His own Father upon Himself for us. Jesus is my Hero. Is He yours?
"You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross" (Colossians 2:13-15).
These verses are only applicable to those who know they are sinners and have put their trust in Jesus to save them. I have done so. Have you? We don't know what tomorrow will bring. We don't even know what today will bring, but if we have Jesus in our hearts, we have nothing to fear and everything to look forward to.

Daily Jot: Breaking your back with the rod of obstruction - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com
There is mounting evidence that powerful democrats, the media and the deep state continue to work in obstructing relaunching the economy, keeping communities safe, and any movement to end the COVID 19 pandemic in America. Over the weekend, for example, President Trump issued Executive Orders to defer payroll tax obligations, provide wage assistance to those who have lost their jobs, postpone evictions of renters and provide financial assistance for rent, and extended student loan repayment relief. Much of the money is from unused funds allocated for other areas of relief. These measures were taken because Democrats are playing stall-ball with the election at your expense.
The president explained in one of his Executive Orders: "Because many of the relief programs created by the Congress have expired or will shortly expire, my Administration and the Republican leadership in the United States Senate have proposed multiple options to continue to provide needed relief to Americans. But Democratic Members of Congress have twice blocked temporary extensions of supplemental unemployment benefits. Political games that harm American lives are unacceptable, especially during a global pandemic, and therefore I am taking action to provide financial security to Americans." Now the Democratic Leadership is expressing outrage over the president's actions.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Sunday told CNN's "State of the Union," "The fact is, is that whether they're legal or not takes time to figure out. I associate my remarks with what the senator who says, they're unconstitutional slop. Right now, we want to address the needs of the American people. As my constitutional advisers tell me, they're absurdly unconstitutional. But right now our focus -and that's a parallel thing-right now the focus, the priority, has to be on, again, meeting the needs of the American people sufficiently allocating resources to send children to school, not threatening schools that if they don't have actual attendance, they won't get the federal dollars." No Pelosi, it's about putting food on the table.
Pelosi is taking a lot of words to say that she and the Democratic Party leadership are doing everything they can to obstruct Trump's efforts to help American citizens during a crisis. She and the Democratic Party are hoping that by locking down the economy and abandoning efforts to assist those in need, that Americans will vote Trump out of office. That's all this is. Pelosi says her focus is meeting the needs of the American people, but they are refusing to pass legislation that does that. When Trump bypasses them, they cry foul. As Christ said in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." The Bible often warns against deception. The deception here is Democratic Party leadership wants Trump out of office and they are willing to break your back to get it done, while saying that Trump is wrong to help you.
Daily Devotion: How to Build Your Faith - by Greg Laurie -
So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today. -Matthew 6:34
Awhile back I was watching a news program that was doing a story on a man who had lived well past 100. He promised to reveal the key to his longevity on the program. So, the news crew followed him to a local market, where he proudly showed them his secret.
He ate a hot dog every day. And it wasn't one of those high-quality brands, either. Go figure.
You may eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, which means that you'll probably have a good, strong life in contrast to someone who isn't doing those things. But ultimately, God numbers and orders your days. He determines the length of your life.
Jesus said, "Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?" (Matthew 6:27 NLT).
The answer, of course, is no. In fact, worry may even shorten our lives. Studies have shown that worry actually can disease our digestive organs. It can have a detrimental effect on us physically.
Worry also indicates a lack of faith. Again, in Matthew 6, Jesus said, "And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?" (verse 30 NLT).
Some have more faith than others. So how do we build up our faith? Romans 10:17 gives us the answer: "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (NKJV).
When I hear God's Word, it puts things in perspective. I see everything the way I ought to see it. So, it's important for us to hear the Word of God and bolster our faith.
Far too often we doubt our beliefs and believe our doubts. Instead, we need to go back to what God says in His Word-what we know is true. That's how we build our faith and stop worrying.

Our Prayer for You- "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
