COVID is Trump’s Fault??

To those who blame President Trump for perceived mishandling of the COVID crisis and even the death of a loved one or friend…I am sorry for your loss, but I respectfully suggest that you take the log out if your own eye. While “the buck always stops at the top,” he wasn’t alone. The state governors played the primary part in their state’s response.

President Trump and the governors all had advice and counsel from “experts” who have served under other adminstrations. Hindsight always says that a better job could have been done.

Unfortunately, politics played a big part in an issue that should have been handled by everyone in a totally non-partisan partnership. If you want to blame someone or something, blame that!

Oh, and the person you think would have done a better job is touting a plan that is almost identical to what President Trump did. If you haven’t voted yet, think twice and pray hard before you fill in the circle.

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)


A vote for the Biden-Harris ticket is a vote for shedding innocent blood! They haven’t hidden their agenda on this issue. If you haven’t voted, please give serious consideration to this fact as you fill in the circle. I’ve read/heard of far too many who are voting based on personality. Personality doesn’t matter when life and death are at stake! And, by-the-way, you will be held accountable for those deaths through abortion–follower of Yeshua as well as non-follower of Yeshua.

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)


R U in the 75%?

Are you part of the 75% of Yeshua-followers who do not vote? We should be ashamed of ourselves! We should have a 100% voting participation record. Voting is a right and a privilege in the USA and we should be exercising it to the fullest. We will never see a change in the direction of our beloved country if we don’t participate in its government — and everyone who is eligible to vote can participate by voting!

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)


Home Stretch

We’ve rounded turn 4 for the final lap and we’re coming down the home stretch to the finish line! What finish line? Nov. 3rd, of course! Have you voted? If you are a follower of Yeshua, have you and are you still praying for God’s will to be accomplished, even if you have already voted? After the election, will you continue praying for the winners, regardless of who they are or their party affiliation, that they will lead in justice and mercy according to Biblical values?

As Nov. 3rd fast approaches, we can’t let our guard down. We must remain steadfast in prayer. I hope that you are praying for His choices to be elected. I hope that you made or are making, your choices based on what the Bible says, not what man thinks. To assist in your prayers, I’m including the Top Ten Prayer Points from Intercessors for America*.

  • Pray for more of God’s Presence to be experienced in your community and our nation. (Ps 16:11; 2 Cor 3:17)
  • Pray for the [Body of Believers] to see the need to repent of personal and national sins in the fear of the Lord. (2 Chron 7:14; 1 Jn 1:9; Prov 9:10)
  • Pray for believers to unite in prayer to seek God for their nieghborhoods and communities. (1 Tim 2:1-2)
  • Pray for godly candidates to be elected, regardless of party affiliation. (Ps 96:10; Ps 1:1-3)
  • Pray for administrators, legislators, and judges to serve in a way that aligns with God’s word. (Ps 19:7-11, Prov 3:5)
  • Pray for the elections to be fair, honest, and without corruption. (Prov 16:13)
  • Pray that the Holy Spirit convicts many who do not know [Jesus] as their Savior, leading them to seek Him as [Savior and] Lord. (1 Tim 2:4)
  • Pray for divine protection over our nation during the critical upcoming elections [and beyond]. (Prov 3:5; Ps 91)
  • Pray that those candidates who know [Yeshua] would openly and courageously speak of their faith and stand firm on their biblical principles. (Mt 5:13-16)
  • Pray that [followeres of Yeshua] across the nation will persist in seeking God’s purpose for America beyond the elections, and that God, in His mercy, will usher in transforming [and lasting] revival. (Ezek 37; Ps 42:1)

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)

Withering America

“A disease that lies in the spirit cannot be cured by that which doesn’t”*

We have been watching America wither away morally and spiritually for many years. The politicians are campaigning that they will fix everything–“they”, not God! At least I haven’t heard any say that God would do the fixing, the curing. As Jonathan Cahn said in his recent book, “A spiritual disease cannot be answered by cures rooted in other realms, political cures, economic cures, ideological cures. No such cure can stop the withering. A spiritual disease can only be answered by a spiritual cure.”*

Are those of us who follow Yeshua willing to pay the price to obtain that cure? God is the source of that cure, but it starts with each of us. In our hearts, yes, but also in the way we live openly for Yeshua!  It will require spending significant time on our knees beseaching God! It will require standing up publically against the antichrist forces that want to see the US continue to wither! And, it will require the dedication of every believer–there is so much that needs changed in our personal lives, the “church”, our government,  and our nation in general.

Where, oh where do you start? If you haven’t voted, do so according to scripture, not according to your pocketbook or the personality of the candate. Once you’ve voted, find ways in your daily life to blatantly live out your faith. Doing so with love for your fellow man, regardless of his views, but being strong and forthright about the truth!

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)

Election Prayer

Father God, in this U.S. election, crush the the disruptive people and forces that seek to replace order with caos! Scatter Your enemies with Your strong arm! Give us leaders who will stand by and for You!! Leaders who will lead and judge according to Your Word!!! (Ps 89:10)

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)


Weep for the US

There has been much weeping for the salvation of the US. Not just for the salvation of souls, but for the restoration of the US itself. There was weeping and repentance today on the Washington Mall and around the country. There must be more weeping and repentance for her in the days to come. You and I are the ones He is calling to weep and repent!.

That weeping, that prayer, that calling out to God in repentance must continue! God is pursuing you and me. He wants us to return to Him! He wants this Country to return to Him so that He can return it to what it once was–a beacon of light and strength to the peoples of the world. A representative of the Most High God!

We, all followers of Jesus, must walk together in unity. We must stand up against the toothless enemy we have allowed to take over our country; stand up in love and compassion against those he is using to take it away from us. The enemy will only succeed if we allow him to. We must repent, turn back to Him, and pray and act in God’s love in everything we do and say!

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)


How to Vote!

If the Word of God is against it, vote against the candidate who is for it!

Until the next time…“May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
And, may He extend His Grace to our great country!

To All Candidates

A special message for all of candidates for legislative office:

We, the voters, do not vote for you because you are smarter than we are, though you may think you are! We do not vote for you to be our parent, though you may try to act like one!

We vote for you to be our representative, to speak and legislate according to the Constitution of the USA and according to our will, not yours. (In case you don’t remember the definition: a representative is “one who serves as a delegate or agent for another,” in other words, they don’t speak for themselves, they speak and act for the one they represent. And a representative government, which ours is, is “an electoral system where citizens vote to elect people to represent the citizens’ interests and concerns.”)

So, if and when you are elected and sworn into office, we expect you to represent your entire constituency, not just those who voted for you, not just those who gave you large donations, not just the leaders of your party.

If you are currently in office and want to get re-elected, then get back to the business of representing all of us rather than trying to control our lives. Do so even during the election season. I know you don’t want to hear this, but doing your job is more important than getting re-elected. And, if you’d do your job with excellence and actually accomplish something for the people who are paying your salary, your real employers, you wouldn’t have to convince anyone that you should be allowed another term in office.

Oh, and while I’m at it, will all of you, and the organizations running ads for or against candidates, please stop telling half-truths and outright lies. Focus on telling us what you are going to do, not how bad your opponent is! And, when and if you are elected/re-elected, keep those promises you make just like our current President, President Donald Trump has done!

If you agree with this post, please share it. Maybe, just maybe, it will end up in the “mailboxes” of some of the “movers and shakers.”

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)


Quote of the Day

Those who side with the majority voice and not with the Word of God are always wrong and courting disaster. (D.A. Carson)

Numbers 14 is a prime example from Scripture. The current condition of the USA is also an example. For too long, followers of Messiah, the Son of God, have taken the easy, non-confrontational path, going along with the majority rather than standing for truth. We must change and change now! This applies to many areas in our lives:

  • Our politics
  • Who we vote for and why – we should always put biblical values first when marking our ballot
  • Our moral choices
  • Our work lives, giving a pass to non-biblical views and questionable practices
  • I’m sure you can think of more…

I agree that we must choose our battles carefully, but I, for one, have too often chosen the “safe” way. How about you? It is beyond time to “stand up for the truth!

Until next time…”May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
