Weekly Bible Studies In the White House

I was so encouraged to hear the news—that there has been weekly Bible studies in the White House, in which twelve cabinet members (most of them) have been attending.

Some on the left are probably enraged at this, believing that there should be total separation of church and state.

But that will not be true for this white House. God is clearly welcome. In fact, President Trump encourages the Bible Studies, and though he hasn’t attended, he is getting the Bible Study notes.

Similarly, it is reported that Donald Trump has a lot of peace, especially when he is around evangelicals.

What great news this is to me (and to many Christians) as I (and we) have been praying for this President and for the country!

Though our enemies are raging, God is on His throne and His people are asking Him to do a mighty work—in the President, in our country, and for many people in the world.

 

Psalm 2

Why are the nations in an uproar,

And the peoples devising a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth take their stand,

And the rulers take counsel together

Against the Lord and against His

Anointed:

3 “Let us tear their fetters apart,

And cast away their cords from us!”

 

4 He who sits in the heavens laughs,

The Lord scoffs at them.

5 Then He will speak to them in His anger

And terrify them in His fury:

6 “But as for Me, I have installed My King

Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

 

7 “I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord:

He said to Me, ‘Thou art My Son,

Today I have begotten Thee.

8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Thine inheritance,

And the very ends of the earth as Thy possession.

9 ‘Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron,

Thou shalt shatter them like earthenware.'”

 

10 Now therefore, O kings, show discernment;

Take warning, O judges of the earth.

11 Worship the Lord with reverence,

And rejoice with trembling.

12 Do homage to the Son, lest He become angry, and you perish in the way,

For His wrath may soon be kindled.

How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

 

Please continue to pray for President Trump, His cabinet, and for this government, that they would be able to do many wonderful and great works, in spite of many enemies that are constantly critical. And let God be praised for all that is done.

Pray for the President: for Encouragement, Humility, and Wisdom

All eyes and ears are on the President lately, to see what he will tweet next, or what he will say in a speech or briefing.

Some, perhaps many, are waiting for him to fail and be impeached. But many are also quietly rooting for him and praying for him to act with wisdom and humility.

In regard to what the President has publically tweeted about AG Sessions, all are waiting to see what will happen—whether Sessions will eventually resign, whether Trump will fire him, or whether, hopefully, they will work things out.

Much prayer is needed at this time for our President.

  1. Pray that God will speak to him, touch him, and encourage him.
  2. Pray that he would trust the Lord and humble himself. That he would seek God in every decision he is faced with.
  3. That he would listen to wise counselors. Proverbs 11:14 says,

 

Where there is no guidance, the people fall,

But in the abundance of counselors there is victory.

Pray for Hopefulness In Light Of Recent Failure of Healthcare Bill

There is always a reason to hope, even in failure. In fact, sometimes our greatest victories and achievements will grow out of failures.  Please let us pray that we all, especially our leaders, will not despair over this latest failure.  Pray that good will come out of it, that we will eventually, in God’s timing, see a great healthcare bill.

We should also pray for other things going on:

Pray for those the President will nominate for key administration posts, CLICK HERE. Pray that they will do their jobs well and in unity with the President’s goals.

Pray for the hearings going on related to the unmasking’s by Susan Rice, that the truth would be revealed.

Persistent Prayer Requested for America: 9 Prayer Requests

Oh, there is so many things believers need to keep praying about concerning President Trump and America. Here is a list of nine prayer requests:

1. Keep praying for Congressman Steve Scalise, that his body would continue to fight off infection, and that the Lord would give him a full recovery.

2. Pray for America’s relationship with all other countries. Pray especially for how President Trump and Secretary Tillerson communicates with country leaders, that they would show leadership with wisdom.

3. Russia: pray for how America deals with Russia, that we would be strong yet wise.

4. North Korea: pray for how America deals with North Korea; that we would know what to do. Pray also that we would know how to interact with surrounding countries, especially China.

5. Trade: Pray that we (America) would be wise in all our trade deals.

6. Health care: Pray that our leaders will come up with a good health care bill. Help them all to be able to see things clearly and to see the best plan going forward.

7. Pray that our leaders would come up with a good tax plan that would be good for businesses as well as individuals.

8. Pray for our nation’s spending, to have good and wise plans for how we spend our money and invest in our nation’s future—for roads, bridges, flight plans, the wall, etc.

9. Pray that President Trump and all our nation’s leaders will know how to endure negative attacks from those that disagree with them. Pray that God will give them strong armor. And pray that they will not be discouraged and know how to respond to, or endure, the attacks.

 

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land (2 Chron. 7:14).

Punishment for Sanctuary City Criminals Is the Best Thing for Them

 

It is absolutely wrong for Governors and Mayors to provide sanctuary for illegal immigrants, especially for those who have committed crimes. They are doing them no favors by harboring them; for it is God’s will that they receive whatever punishment is due them under the law.

Nahum 1:3 says, “The Lord will by no means leave the guilty unpunished.”

Yes, God in His justice will punish the guilty, if not now then later. But He desires that it be as soon as possible. That is why He has appointed our earthly governing authorities to execute the punishment (His punishment) of criminals. Thus we all are to be subject to our governing authorities as to God (Rom. 13:1-4).

Now the reason I am suggesting that it is the best thing for those who have committed crimes to receive their punishment as soon as possible, is because, first of all, it is God’s will. And whatever is His will is best—even though we may not understand. But beyond that, though we all know that all punishment is painful, if there is an acknowledgment of sin, God will bring peace and cleaning to the heart (1 Jn. 1:9).

Those governors and Mayors who think they are doing illegal immigrants a favor by harboring them in sanctuary cities are dead wrong. The best thing they can do for them is to hand them over to the Federal authorities—ICE, where they will receive the opportunity to correct whatever wrong they have committed.

We need to pray for our authorities to do what is right and to be wise.

Prayer for the Peace Efforts of President Trump and Jerod Kushner

 

From the White House Briefing Room, 6/21/2017:

President Donald J. Trump spoke [on the phone] today [6/21/17] with Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia to congratulate him on his recent elevation. The President and the Crown Prince committed to close cooperation to advance our shared goals of security, stability, and prosperity across the Middle East and beyond. The two leaders discussed the priority of cutting off all support for terrorists and extremists, as well as how to resolve the ongoing dispute with Qatar. They discussed efforts to achieve a lasting peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. And they discussed ways to further deepen economic cooperation between the United States and Saudi Arabia.

 

PRAYER

Please continue to pray for our President, that his effort in his conversation with the Prince at establishing peace and security will pay off. Pray also for Jerod Kushner as he is in Israel making peace efforts. Pray that his efforts would be fruitful.

Where Is the Anger and Hatred from the Left Coming From?

Sure there is anger on both sides, but it is obvious that most of the intense hatred is coming from the left. Where does that come from? Is it just a hatred for Trump, or are there other reasons?

One video I saw said that it got started on college campuses—where the teachers would actually promote the hatred and encourage students to rebel. I’m sure we have all seen this. Sad!

Another idea is that those on the left view politics differently than those on the right. They have a higher view of politics. Politics to them is a part of their faith. They have been led to believe that this new global agenda that they have come to believe in (which includes the Paris climate accord) is something very close to God and must be regarded as sacred.  And I think Obama has helped to install these beliefs into them.

So when someone like Trump came along and has attempted to tear down all of Obama’s policies and ideas (which they have held as very sacred), this has made them angry. Yes, of course it did! Obama, to the Democrats, was (and still is) like their God. And they have worshipped him and the global agenda. So it stands to reason why they hate us (the republicans). Because to them we are evil. We and our leaders are now in the process of tearing down all their sacred gods. And so we can easily see why, to them, their anger is justified. To them, all that is evil needs to be wiped out. I’m sure that is what James Hodgkinson was thinking when he attempted mass murder at the Virginia ball park. How sad!

Conversely, I think most of those on the right have a different view of politics and government. We worship God alone, not government. Thus we view politics only as a means to carry out God’s will in our country. And most of us I think are against a global agenda or anything that resembles a one world government—which will be led by the antichrist. Sadly, this may be coming sooner than we think.

Virginia Shooter Driven by Mainstream Media

According to a reliable source, the shooter’s Facebook page looks like CNN’s front page—full of Russian conspiracy theories and Trump hatred. It is obvious that this 66 year old shooter, a Bernie Sanders supporter, was driven by the hatred of the mainstream media.

I wonder how many others will follow in his steps. I fear that many will, and many probably have the same murderous thoughts in their heads. And the media, I’m afraid, will continue to drive them on. In fact, I believe that this media we have now is what will support the soon coming antichrist.  Yes, the antichrist media is here! Already in place! Yes this hateful, Satanically inspired media will support the antichrist to go against all that is good and godly, and to hunt down and kill Christians and Jews wherever they may be found (Rev. 6:9; 20:4).

On the brighter side, it looks as if this shooting has worked, at least temporarily, to bring some unity among opposing parties. That’s wonderful. Pray that it will last and that many will look at their heart and change their thoughts.

President Trump assures Evangelical Community: “I’m Fighting Hard for You”

In the president’s speech to a group of evangelicals gathered at a conference, on June 8, 2017, called Faith and Freedom Coalition, his emphasis seemed to be that he was fighting hard for them and for Christian freedom in America. I listened to the video and it was very inspirational. I invite you to do the same. Click here for entire video. Also click here to read the entire speech.

Here are a few excerpts from President Trump’s speech (bold for emphasis):

 

We will always support our Evangelical community, and defend your right, and the right of all Americans, to follow and to live by the teachings of their faith.  And as you know, we’re under siege.  You understand that.  But we will come out bigger and better and stronger than ever.  You watch.  (Applause.)

You fought hard for me, and now I’m fighting hard for all of you.  I have one goal as President:  to fight for the American people and to fight for America and America first.  (Applause.)

Your voices will resound across the halls of our Capitol, and across the world.  We recite today the words of Isaiah Chapter 1, Verse 17:  “Learn to do right; seek justice.  Defend the oppressed.  Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”

The entrenched interests and failed, bitter voices in Washington will do everything in their power to try and stop us from this righteous cause, to try to stop all of you.  They will lie.  They will obstruct.  They will spread their hatred and their prejudice.  But we will not back down from doing what is right.  

Nothing worth doing ever came easy, but we know how to fight better than anybody.  And we never, ever would give up, and we don’t give up.  We are winners, and we are going to fight, and win, and have an unbelievable future.  (Applause.)  Unbelievable future.  And it’s going to be together.  (Applause.)

From now on, we will follow a very simple rule:  Every day I am President we are going to make America first — not somebody else, not some other country.  We are going to make America first.  (Applause.)  Thank you.

As long as I’m President, no one is going to stop you from practicing your faith or from preaching what is in your heart and from preaching — and really, this is so important — from the bottom of my heart — from preaching from the people that you most want to hear and that you so respect.  So we have taken a very, very strong position, and you picked a winner.  (Applause.)

So we want our pastors speaking out.  We want their voices in our public discourse.  And we want our children to know the blessings of God.  (Applause.)  Schools should not be a place that drive out faith and religion, but that should welcome faith and religion with wide, open, beautiful arms.  (Applause.)  Faith inspires us to be better, to be stronger, to be more caring and giving, and more determined to act in selfless and courageous defense of what is good and what is right.  It is time to put a stop to the attacks on religion.  (Applause.)  Thank you.

We will end the discrimination against people of faith.  Our government will once again celebrate and protect religious freedom.  (Applause.)

Faith and freedom are linked together because liberty comes from our Creator.  Our rights are given to us by a divine authority, and no earthly force can ever take those rights away.  (Applause.)  That is why my administration is taking power out of Washington and giving it back to the people where it belongs.  Said right from the beginning.  (Applause.)

But we know that families and churches, not government officials, know best how to create a strong and loving community.  (Applause.)  We know that parents, not bureaucrats, know best how to raise children and create a thriving society.  And above all else, we know this:  In America, we don’t worship government.  We worship God.  (Applause.)  Right?  We worship God.  (Applause.)

We face many challenges.  There are many hills and mountains to climb.  But, one by one, we will scale those summits and we will get the job done and get the job done correctly.  We will prove worthy of this very, very important moment in history.  As long as we have pride in our beliefs, courage in our convictions, and faith in our God, then we will not fail.  (Applause.)

And as long as our country remains true to its values, loyal to its citizens, and devoted to its Creator, then our best days are yet to come because we will make America great again.
