I had a prophetic dream several weeks ago that I walked up to Lou Engle and handed him two tickets to the World Series where the Los Angeles Dodgers were playing. And I had said to Lou in the dream that there was a message that God had for him. And so when I woke up from the dream, I looked up where the World Series was being played. And it was being played in Texas, which I found significant, because that's where Roe v. Wade was passed into law. And then the games were being played at Globe Life stadium, which I felt was significant.

And so when I woke up, I decided to reach out to Lou and shared this dream with him. And while I was talking with him, I began to prophesy to him. Even before the World Series, I said to Lou that I believe the Lord said to me that the Dodgers would win the World Series. And this would be a sign that God is not done with Los Angeles or California.
[...]
I told him that Amy Coney Barrett would be set in as a Supreme Court justice before the election, and that Donald Trump would be reelected. Now the final one, Donald J. Trump being reelected, has yet to happen. I believe it will. I told Lou that if all three of these things happened, it would be assigned to him that he was to call 1 million women to the Mall in Washington, D.C., to see Roe v. Wade overturned in America.

And so I believe that Amy Coney Barrett is a modern-day Esther. And God has called Lou Engle like a Mordecai. And I believe that Amy Coney Barrett has opened up what I'm calling a 'new Esther and Deborah era' in the body of Christ, where we're going to see a massive, righteous women's movement. I believe the Lord revealed to me that Roe v. Wade—it really is a women's issue. And God is going to call forth women from all over America to gather at the Mall one day to see Roe v. Wade overturned.

Some “theologians” today are perverting Bible stories to promote their agenda. We can’t let them hijack the gospel.

A few weeks ago when I addressed the topic of homosexuality, a reader posted a comment on our forum suggesting that the biblical King David and his friend Jonathan were gay lovers. After a few other readers questioned this interpretation, another reader repeated the claim. “The Bible is clear that David and Jonathan were physical, sexual, gay male homosexual lovers,” this person wrote authoritatively—without citing a chapter and verse.

Most evangelical Christians would drop their jaws in bewilderment if confronted with such an odd theory. Even people with minimal knowledge of the Old Testament know that (1) David was married to Jonathan’s sister, Michal—and he had a few other wives, and (2) David’s biggest blunder was his adulterous relationship with Bathsheba—a woman he saw bathing on a rooftop. God was not happy about David’s lust or with his decision to have Bathsheba’s husband killed so he could hide his sin.

It is illogical to read homosexuality into the story of David and Jonathan because neither Jewish nor early Christian tradition ever endorses sex outside the bounds of heterosexual marriage. If you read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, you will never see a depiction of a gay relationship, ever. Nor will you see homosexuality affirmed. You cannot get around the fact that the Bible says gay sex is flat-out wrong.

But that doesn’t mean people won’t try to change the meaning of Scripture. “Theologians” from both Catholic and Protestant backgrounds have written books claiming that various Bible characters were gay. They have suggested that Ruth and Naomi were lesbian lovers; that the Roman centurion in Matthew 8 had a gay relationship with his servant; and that the disciple John had a homoerotic relationship with Jesus.

Gay-affirming theologians also have pounced on the story of David and Jonathan. They point to David’s words in 2 Samuel 1:26 when he eulogized Jonathan and Saul: “I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; you have been very pleasant to me. Your love to me was more wonderful than the love of women” (NASB).

So how do we interpret this verse? We need to keep these points in mind:

1. Old Testament morality has not changed. Our culture today is redefining sexuality. We’ve made killing babies a right, we celebrate fornication and we’re on a mad dash to legitimize gay marriage. But with all the bending, twisting and legal redefining, we cannot change what was written in the Bible thousands of years ago. It’s silly to make the Bible imply something it never said. And it’s laughable to suggest that David, the author of many of the psalms—and the biblical figure who best represents a true worshipper of the one true God—would be recast as being in a gay relationship.

Conservative Jews in our country agree. The Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), the nation’s largest body of Orthodox Jews, recently reaffirmed their commitment to Old Testament morality. The RCA recently stated, “The Torah and Jewish tradition, in the clearest of terms, prohibit the practice of homosexuality. Same-sex unions are against both the letter and the spirit of Jewish law, which sanctions only the union of a man and a woman in matrimony.” Jewish priests in the time of David and Jonathan held the same view.

2. David and Jonathan had a model friendship. Scripture says Jonathan loved David “as himself” (1 Sam. 18:3). Jonathan’s love was selfless and heroic. Even though he was in line to be the next king of Israel, he recognized David would step into that role—and Jonathan not only celebrated his friend as the rightful king but also protected him from his father’s spear-throwing tantrums.

Jonathan’s love was not lust. It was the ultimate in sacrifice. He laid down his rights so his friend could be promoted. He opposed his father’s self-willed ambition and instead affirmed that David should be the true king. Jonathan showed us all how to be a true friend. David’s comment that his friend’s love was “more wonderful than the love of women” was not sexual; he was praising Jonathan’s loyalty and brotherly devotion.

3. We should encourage healthy male friendships instead of sexualizing them. In our fatherless culture, men are starved for affirmation and encouragement. God wired men to need close friends, but few of us are willing to build those kinds of relationships because of insecurity, inferiority or pride. Many guys are lonely, isolated and afraid to admit they need help. Some may even struggle with sexual confusion, yet they could find healing through a combination of the Holy Spirit’s power and healthy male bonding. The church today should do everything possible to encourage male friendships.

It is incredibly perverse—not to mention blasphemous—to suggest that anything sexual was going on between David and Jonathan. Yet I suspect that leaders in the gay-affirming church movement will continue to come up with more bizarre examples of Scripture-twisting in order to promote their agenda. We can’t allow them to hijack the purity of the gospel.

Things will change quickly. Do you remember where we were in 2015? An intimidating form of thought-tyranny was rising under the guise of "political correctness." This continued until God released a wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness in the form of a defiant political outsider named Donald Trump. The bias of media has now been exposed, along with the adolescence and irrationality of Hollywood celebrities. But there is a counter-punch coming from the dazed and desperate spirits operating in and through the progressive ranks. They are reorganizing as we speak.

[Comment on article that says, if Clinton wins, Christians should pray for her, not demonise people who didn't vote their way, stand up for religious freedoms and not be pessimistic]

We do not live in the Roman Empire where it's citizens, as well as Jews have no voice. Our nation was founded on the premise that the government is "of the people, by the people and for the people". As long as we have a part in that process, we have a responsibility to be the light of the world. If God is in control and we should just sit aside, we should then close down every church and outreach, every soup kitchen, etc because God is in control. If we sit idly by now, we will be sitting idly by when they come for us. Of course, if we take the attitude of the writer and many in this thread of comment, we won't have to worry about persecution because we won't be a threat while we sit idly by and pray in our houses. How many will go to hell because the church sat idly by and let all Christian freedom go down the drain because we just wanted to let the atheists take over and take what was once ours. Your comparisons with scriptural instances don't really compute with the opportunity we have in the United States. Of course, this may explain why it is not mentioned in prophetic scripture. Christians were lazy, apathetic, self righteous, and deceived, so they gave up their God-given rights and opportunities. We will end up like the Jews as they were loaded onto trains and taken to the furnaces.

It amazes me that anyone who stands for conservatism and Trump specifically are partisan. Evil has had a head start under Obama, by will go into a fury with a Clinton win. Just get ready to see the greatest revival of darkness in history in this nation. The only hope is that the light shines brighter in deep darkness. There will come a great spirit of compliance from those in the church for the purpose of being peaceful. For those who stand for scriptural living, the hounds of hell will be loosed out on us. Even then, these same ones giving us the celebratory Hillary wins news will be the ones who urge us to just try to get along and not judge.

Have you ever considered that you might be putting too much confidence in your own wisdom and discernment? God said 'Lean not on your own understanding, but in all you ways.....' seek him for his wisdom. You are misjudging Trump. Trump treats his employees and us voters with tremendous respect. He suffers no fools gladly, though, and he will go into combat with those who have it coming and also dish it out. Even the disabled reporter whom he is accused of making fun of, is the very man who tried to make Trump out to be a liar about Muslims celebrating on 9/11, denying that he wrote an article which Trump referred to. The man was willing to mix it up as a full human, but wasn't willing to take the lumps for doing so. You have based your opinion of Trump entirely on what you view as your own wisdom, discernment, etc. The Bible tells you not to do this. Seek HIS wisdom. Trump appears to be fighting in his strength and under an anointing. Even Trump says when he stands before the people, he feels a great love for them, and is aware they feel the same for him. Love comes from God. Reconsider your position.

Prophecy: Donald Trump Shall Become the Trumpet

In His great wisdom throughout the course of human history, God has chosen not only to fulfill His plans and purposes through men and women who have yielded to the sound of His voice, but He has also chosen to accomplish His will through men and women who have ignored and rebelled against Him. One such man was King Cyrus mentioned in Isaiah 45.

Isaiah prophesied of Cyrus and speaks as a mouthpiece of the Lord when he declared, "I have even called you by your name [Cyrus]; I have named you, though you have not known Me. I am the Lord and there is no other; there is no God besides Me.
I strengthen you, though you have not known Me, so that they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west that there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other" (Is. 45:4-6).

What a powerful and profound prophetic declaration to a man who did not know or serve the Lord! Could God not use the wicked and ungodly to bring about His plans and purposes thousands of years ago and can He not still do the same thing again, especially in the midst of the crisis that we find America in today?

I was in a time of prayer several weeks ago when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, "Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet. Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him. I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election. You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger."

As the body of Christ, we must keep our ears and eyes open as we continue to move toward the 2016 elections in the United States. I believe that God is not only going to use the prayers of the saints to bring about His plans and purposes, but He is even going to use those who do not know Him. What a great comfort and source of encouragement we have in the wisdom of God in this hour.

Just as Job declared to God in Job 42:2, "I know that You can do everything, and that no thought can be withheld from You." Let's begin to pray in faith, knowing that God can do all things and that no purpose of His in the 2016 elections can be thwarted!

Can demons engage in sexual activity with humans?

As bizarre as it sounds, those who minister to people in occult bondage say it's more common than you think.

For nearly two decades, Contessa Adams felt as though she had no power against the demonic violators of her body. She felt trapped in secrecy and shame and knew that the demons tormenting her wanted things to stay that way.

But God had another agenda for Adams when she found Christ in 1979. The former stripper has a ministry through which she exposes one of Satan's darkest secrets—sexual demons.

These spiritual rapists, as Adams describes them in her book, Consequences, often prey on people by performing sexual acts through nightmares and erotic dreams. Some people become so dependent upon these demonic experiences that they actually look forward to them.

"Anybody that has been attacked by them will tell you ... they're worried [that] they could not find that pleasure with mortal people," says Adams, who claims she was once possessed by sexual demons.

The two most identifiable sexual demons are the incubus, which is a male sexual demon that traditionally assaults women, and the succubus, which is a female sexual demon that assaults men. Sometimes they also lure people into homosexual behavior.

Adams notes that one evangelist, whose name she would not divulge, was so troubled by the sexual pleasure the succubus gave her that she even contemplated suicide.

Adams says the succubus spirit that used to attack her confused her so much that she contemplated becoming a lesbian.

"Unless you're strong enough to rebuke it, they'll keep coming back," she says. "You must speak the Word of God, knowing you have power in the name of Jesus."

Janet Boynes #fundie charismamag.com

Let me say this in plain English: The gay community wants to indoctrinate an entire generation of American children with pro-homosexual propaganda and eliminate traditional values from American society. Their ultimate dream is to create a new America based on sexual promiscuity in which the values you and I cherish are long forgotten.

As I read what those amazing One Million Moms did by calling Disney to shut down the airing of lesbian moms on the show Good Luck Charlie, I felt relieved to know we are still fighting for what is valuable. That was a bold move, and I commend them for taking a stand.

However, does something like this have to happen in order for us to get involved with this issue that is polluting our airwaves? Why can't we, as the church, be proactive instead of reactive?

Read what a parent posted in the comment section of the article "Lesbian Moms Get Airtime On Disney's Good Luck Charlie":

"This is not new for the show. That show has been promoting homosexuality with the kid character for some time. My 8 year old told me about the show, I was shocked and didn't know what to think until my niece was watching the show while my mom watched her and a boy character had a crush on another boy character on the show. We do not have a television by the way. The Lord moved me to get rid of it in 2010."

Really? Don't you see what's happening here, church? The gay community is getting its message across—that change in sexual orientation is not possible—only because they have been given airtime on many TV shows and movies, and the media has had a voice in telling us what is right and true in their eyes. On Thursday, for example, Good Morning America aired a story of a high school coach from Yonkers, N.Y., who came out to his basketball players.

The Bible says in Hosea 4:6, "My people are ruined because they don't know what's right or true" (MSG).

[...]

Nothing has changed. The devil is still trying to deceive many today, and we as the church have taken the bait, hook, line and sinker. Eve said in Genesis 3:13, "The serpent deceived me" (NKJV). I'm not even going to discuss the repercussions of that choice and how it has affected humanity today.

The Bible clearly says in Revelation 12:9 that the devil will deceive the whole world. Anything contrary to the truth of God's Word is a lie. Are you being deceived by the gay propaganda?

This in no shape or form is an attack against people. We are to love all and show kindness to all, so don't think this is a license to hate. I am talking against immorality and against a mentality that will bring confusion and harm to our future generations.

In the natural, the gay community is moving forward. Some churches—not all churches—are embracing this lifestyle. God help them!

We can't remain silent anymore. We, as the church, must unite in our efforts and become the voice God would have us be.

One Million Moms should push for Disney and many other shows to air a show with a person that has left the life of homosexuality. When have we seen this kind of lifestyle being shown in a positive light on Lifetime movies, in secular media, on Capitol Hill, at the White House or on any other television show, for that matter?

Maybe they fear that we can debunk the lies that it's not by choice they live a homosexual life and that change is not possible.

We are the voice of reason, we are the voice of the church and we are not going away.
