PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON RELEASED FROM TURKEY!

Pastor Andrew Brunson, the pastor of a small Christian church in Turkey, was arrested in December 2016, and charged with attempting to overthrow Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamic regime.

What kind of nonsense is that?

Erdogan is intent on establishing a global Islamic Caliphate, as are other Muslim tyrants throughout the Middle East, and he cracked down on Christians in Turkey.

President Trump pressed for Pastor Andrew’s release since taking office, and as in the case of Christians Kim Dong-chul, Kim Hak-song and Kim Sang-duk held in North Korea’s prisons, President Trump has not failed in his determination to relieve the suffering of persecuted Christians. Prevailing in his (Trump’s) attempts to see Pastor Andrew Brunson free, Turkey finally released him and he arrived with his wife, Norine in Washington on Saturday.

Thank you, Lord God Almighty!

Thank you, President Donald Trump!

All of the above persecuted Christians were in prison during the Obama stint in the White House. Did he do one thing to help an American Christian suffering under tyranny?

NO!

The lying Muslim, who fraudulently held himself out to be a “Christian,” did absolutely nothing to assist persecuted Christians. Moreover, he gave arms and billions of American dollars to Muslim terrorists!

While Christians were being beheaded and chopped to pieces, even their children, in Syria, did the fraud, Obama, do one thing to help them?

NO!

In fact, about 80 out of 100 immigrants given asylum from the nations where Christians were being persecuted and slaughtered were Muslims, not the persecuted Christians!

Vote for any Liberal Luciferian Lunatic (LLL) Democrat and you will get more of the same!

President Trump is blessed by God, because he lifts up God’s Holy Name throughout this nation. God has blessed him with the ability to persevere for the release of persecuted Christians in a predominantly anti-Christian world today. God raised him up and placed him in office for such a time as this, friends.

President Trump pressed for Pastor Brunson’s release, and while Erdogan refused initially, Trump sanctioned Turkish officials and doubled tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Turkey, because of Pastor Brunson’s persecution, on account of his Christian faith.

President Donald Trump is a reprieve from God to this nation. Every US citizen needs to be grateful for such a president, who not only negotiates the best international trade deals for American citizens, but also gives from his heart to the plight of even the pastor of a small group of Christians in Turkey, as well as other persecuted saints throughout the world.

If the citizens of the United States don’t turn to God with thanksgiving, it will return to the days of such evil traitors as Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary!

*There was a time when such traitors were assassinated in the United States.

It is the responsibility of every Christian to thank God for President Trump, to back him up, and get out there and vote for him during the upcoming 2020 elections.

*If you are a registered Democrat, your vote for a Republican presidential candidate doesn’t count. No Christian should be a registered Democrat. In fact, if you claim to be a Christian and you are a registered Democrat, you aren’t a Christian! That isn’t a political statement; it is a statement of faith. The Democratic Party’s uniform political agenda is so evil you simply can’t be a Christian and remain a Democrat – the two cannot mix. That would be like saying the devil is a friend of God.

Pastor Brunson and his wife were flown by military jet from Turkey on Friday, and after a stopover in Germany for a medical checkup, they were greeted by President Trump in the Oval Office within 24 hours. Pastor Brunson prayed for President Trump during his visit. His prayer was this (in part), as reported by the AP News:

“Give him (President Trump) supernatural wisdom to accomplish all the plans you have for this country and for him. I ask that You give him wisdom in how to lead this country into righteousness. I ask that You give him perseverance and endurance and courage to stand for truth. I ask that You protect him from slander from enemies, from those who would undermine. I ask that You make him a great blessing to this country; fill him with your wisdom and strength and perseverance, and we bless him. May he be a great blessing to our country; in Jesus’s name, we bless you. Amen.”

Pastor Andrew Brunson is an American who lived in Black Mountain, North Carolina. He moved his family to Turkey and pastored a small church, Izmir Resurrection Church, and has lived in Turkey for about 20 years. He was arrested on false charges and faced 35 years in prison for espionage; but thanks to God, and His man President Donald Trump, Pastor Brunson is free!

We called for prayer for Pastor Brunson’s release on a number of occasions over the past couple of years, so it is with much gratitude that I thank all of those who prayed, and I thank God for answering the collective prayers of many Christians throughout the United States, Turkey and abroad, for Pastor Andrew Brunson’s release.

Thank you, Father in heaven, for hearing and answering the prayers of Your people. Thank you for your faithfulness; thank you for President Donald Trump!

The Word of God tells us,

“…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” James 5:16

Jesus said,

“Again, I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that you shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven” Matthew 18:19

This is a conditional promise to the saints of God: 1) prayers ordained by God, not the whims of carnality, 2) the prayers of God’s faithful servants, not those who hang on to His name, but live like the devil, 3) those who “wait upon the Lord” (Isaiah 40:31), 4) those who continue in faith without wavering (James 1:6-8), as if seeing that which has not manifested yet (Hebrews 11).

God has answered many of our prayers for the persecuted saints. Here are some praise reports:

The release of Meriam Ibrahim, Saeed Abedini, Gilad Shalit, Pastors Michael Ruot and Peter Reith, Pastor Kuwa Shamal, Amir Hekmati and Pastor Hassan Abduraheem, Youcef Nadarkhani (Update: Pastor Youcef was arrested again – please pray)!

We also prayed daily for three-year-old Christina Nuh, an Iraqi child taken by ISIS terrorists. Christina’s mother, Aida, who is a Christian, publicly proclaimed, “Jesus can bring her back.” Christina was returned to her parents after three years by the great, miracle-working hand of God!

We prayed daily for the release of Kim Dong-chul, Kim Sang-duk (Tony Kim) and Kim Hak-song from North Korean prisons, which appeared to be an impossibility in the natural realm, but they were released because all things are possible with God!

If not for God’s divine intervention, President Trump’s efforts, Pastor Brunson would likely have spent his remaining years languishing in a harsh Turkish prison for his Christian faith.

Jesus told us this would happen in the latter days,

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you, and you shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake” Matthew 24:9

Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior; unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate (Romans 1:21-32). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away.

Julian Assange Faces Eviction from Embassy

JULIAN ASSANGE FACES EVICTION FROM EMBASSY

Headlines over the last several days read Julian Assange is facing eviction from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London any day now. We don’t know this to be a fact, but it is reportedly developing, and the fact that his internet and phone have been cut since March, except calls from his attorneys, is not a good sign.

Assange and his colleagues have exposed criminals, but have posed no harm to those who are innocent. They have exposed vile pedophiles, child traffickers, who are still walking free, and the utterly wicked and treasonous crimes of Hillary Clinton.

The work of Assange and his colleagues have also helped Christians and conservatives stay on the internet, who would otherwise have been censored.

Julian Assange needs our prayers, friends.

We prayed daily for three-year-old Christina Nuh, an Iraqi child taken by ISIS terrorists. Christina’s mother, Aida, who is a Christian, publicly proclaimed, “Jesus can bring her back.” Christina was returned to her parents after three years by the great, miracle-working hand of God!

We prayed daily for the release of Kim Dong-chul, Kim Sang-duk (Tony Kim) and Kim Hak-song from North Korean prisons, which appeared to be an impossibility in the natural realm, but they were released because all things are possible with God!

God has answered many other prayers, such as those prayed daily for the release of Youcef Nadarkhani, Meriam Ibrahim, Saeed Abedini, Gilad Shalit, Pastors Michael Ruot and Peter Reith, Pastor Kuwa Shamal, Amir Hekmati and Pastor Hassan Abduraheem, until we witnessed the freedom of each one!

Please pray for Julian Assange, that God will provide his freedom out of the hands of those who would actually like to see him, and his colleagues, dead (some who have already paid that price), because they expose abominable crimes.

Has anyone noticed the difference between the treatment of treasonous Chelsea Manning, who released classified US military documents to Wikileaks – and walks free, versus the threats waged against Julian Assange by US officials? The DC pedophiles really like transgenders and they help boost their depopulation agenda too!

Assange, to my knowledge, is not a Christian, but he has been used of God to uncover a lot of evil, so we need to pray for his salvation, in the event he is not saved, and for his freedom.

The Word of God tells us,

“…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” James 5:16.

Jesus said,

“I say unto you, if two of you agree on earth, as touching anything they ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven” Matthew 18:19.

God doesn’t always answer immediately; in fact, He doesn’t provide an immediate answer in most cases. He allows our faith to be tested. Sometimes, things even get perilous, before a miraculous answer is given; albeit, God is always faithful.

Julian Assange has already waited a long time, six years, but I have been praying for him a while now. Will you agree with me in prayer and take part in the next miracle?

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.


During the persecutions of Protestants by the Roman Catholics in Germany, a most bloody tragedy occurred at Magdeburg in the year 1631. Generals Tilly and Pappenheim, having taken the Protestant city by storm, upwards of twenty thousand people were slain during the carnage, without distinction of status, sex or age; and six thousand were drowned while attempting to escape over the River Elbe. The remaining inhabitants were stripped naked, severely scourged, had their ears cropped and being yoked together like oxen were moved into the river to drown – all in the name of God (the god of Catholics, who is Lucifer)!

Excerpts taken from Fox’s Book of Martyrs – Zondervan Publishing House (1926)

A few hundred years ago, Fox’s Book of Martyrs was chained to every pulpit, alongside the Holy Bible. I suppose people decided to turn their heads away from such violent crimes and become more “dignified.” We dishonor those who suffered by burying their testimonies and martyrdom. It also seems most churches today are too “dignified” for the Holy Spirit and fire, Who fell on the apostles of the early church (Acts 2)!

The Catholic Church has never issued an apology for the crimes committed during the Inquisition and the brutal torture and murders of Protestant Christians, who denounced papal authority, denied Purgatory, the selling of indulgences in sin, the worship of idols, and prayers to the saints and the Virgin Mary. Neither has any reparation been made to the heirs of the saints who suffered such vile persecutions from the Catholic Church. Protestants were brutally murdered by Catholics by way of burning them alive at the stake, flaying alive, hangings, cutting them to pieces, burying them alive, drowning, torturing them on the rack, whereby bones were broken and bodies ripped apart, beheading them, etc… The property and assets were seized of those heinously murdered by the Catholic Church from about the Twelfth Century through around the 1820s, not that long ago. The Vatican sits atop the blood of the saints. Revelation 18 describes her brutal end for heresies and having committed such abominable crimes.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4.

God is calling His sincere believers to come out of the Catholic abomination, before it’s too late!

OVERCOMERS BY THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY

Throughout the years, on this and other websites, I have requested prayer for those in bonds. We often hear of prayer requests, and we pray, although less frequently do we hear about the answers to many of our prayers.

The Lord laid it on my heart to share the testimonies of these, whom the Lord has delivered from bonds, in direct answer to the prayers of the saints:

Gilad Shalit – Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Sergeant First Class abducted and taken prisoner by Hamas to Gaza 6/25/06; released by prisoner exchange – by the miracle-working hand of God 10/18/11!

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani – Christian pastor arrested in Iran 10/2009; sentenced to death by hanging for “apostasy” (for his Christian faith) 11/13/10; released by the miracle-working hand of God 9/8/12!

Meriam Ibrahim – Christian mother arrested in Sudan 8/2013; sentenced to 100 lashes and sentenced to death by hanging for “apostasy” (because of her Christian faith) 5/15/14; released 6/24/14; rearrested 6/24/14; released (second and final time) by the miracle-working hand of God 6/26/14!

Pastor Saeed Abedini – American Christian pastor arrested in Iran 7/2012; sentenced to eight years for creating Christian churches and “compromising national security” on 1/27/13; released after three years by the miracle-working hand of God 1/16/16!

Amir Hekmati – American Veteran arrested in Iran 8/2011 for allegedly spying for the CIA; sentenced to death 1/9/12; sentence overturned 3/5/12; later sentenced to 10 years; released by the miracle-working hand of God 1/16/16!

Pastors Michael Ruot and Peter Reith – Christian pastors arrested (Michael on 12/14/14; Peter on 1/11/15) in Sudan for “blasphemy;” released by the miracle-working hand of God 8/5/15!

Pastor Kuwa Shamal – Christian pastor arrested in Sudan for his faith 12/18/15; released 12/21/15; rearrested 5/24/16; released by the miracle-working hand of God 1/2/17!

To God be all the glory for the release of these.

The Word of God says,

“They overcame by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death” Revelation 12:11.

I published a call to prayer on 12/10/15 for the release of Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini, American Veteran Amir Hekmati, American Bob Levinson and Christian mother Asia Bibi. After 37 days, on 1/16/16, Pastor Saeed Abedini and Amir Hekmati were released! Pastor Abedini had been in prison more than three years, and Amir Hekmati over four years. This demonstrates the power of the collective prayers of the saints!

The Word of God tells us,

“Confess your faults to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” James 5:16.

“You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatsoever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you” John 15:16.

There are still those in bonds who need our continued prayers:

asia-bibi-sentenced-to-death
Asia Bibi – Christian mother arrested 6/2009 and sentenced to death by hanging in Pakistan for “apostasy.”
bob-levinson-4

Bob Levinson – American abducted in Iran 3/9/07.

pastor-hasaan-abduraheem

Pastor Hassan Abduraheem – Christian pastor arrested 12/18/15 in Sudan for his faith and faces the death penalty.

pastor-andrew-brunson

Pastor Andrew Brunson – Christian pastor arrested in Turkey 10/2016 for his faith (on trumped-up charges of “membership in an armed terrorist organization”).

Certain people hear of the names and plights of others who need our prayers. When their names cross our path, we need to pray for them.

Yes, there are many, many others that need prayer, but God will give the names of those we do not hear about to other Christians who will pray for them.

How do we keep up with all of the prayer requests? Personally, I print the names and stories of many people I have prayed for at least once, then I place their prayer requests on my makeshift “altar” before God. I may not call their individual names out every day, but I pray over them collectively every day, laying my hands upon the requests. This is one method of prayer, but the important thing is to pray in the manner God leads you to pray.

Prayer changes things, friends.

When Herod put forth his hand to vex the church, he killed James, the brother of John. He proceeded further to kill Peter also and the Bible tells us,

“Peter, therefore, was kept in prison; but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him…And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him and a light shined in the prison and he smote Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly, and his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird yourself and bind on your sandals, and so he did. And he said unto him, Cast your garment about you and follow me. And he went out and followed him and did not know that it was true which was done by the angel, but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and second ward, they came to the iron gate that led unto the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and passed through one street and henceforth the angel departed from him” Acts 12:5,7-10.

If you believe in God, do not limit Him. Nothing is impossible for God (Luke 1:37).

“Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him” Hebrews 11:6.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
