As Christians, we are called to pray for God’s guidance and wisdom. At Rapture Ready we feel it is more imperative than ever for believers to stand together in prayerful unity as the world continues on a downward spiral toward the Tribulation hour. Calamity causes people to waste huge amounts of time fixated on watching the destruction instead of praying for protection and God’s miraculous interventions.
The Bible is filled with verses encouraging us to stay focused on praying for God’s will for our lives; for the safety and
Up to the final moments of our days on earth, until the day of the Rapture of the Church, we are dedicated to be prayer warriors for the cause of Christ. We have added this new page to invite and motivate our fellow believers to pray for the most pressing needs of the day.
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2)
Raging, Ruination, Rumblings and Repulsion
Muslims don’t need an excuse to rage against Israel. It’s what they’ve been doing for centuries. They’re raging this week with protests and acts of violence, not just in Jerusalem, but also in Europe, which is becoming ‘Europeistan.’ Putin, the ‘Palestinian’-supporting pope, and leaders in Europe are complaining too, but who they’re all really against is God (Psalm 2). It’s how it is in these last days; and it’s going to get worse, as those who study Bible prophecy know (Zechariah 12).
As wars and rumors of wars abound (Matthew 24), we continue to see the last days prophecies in Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39 getting closer to being fulfilled every day. Also a video surfaced this week showing the commander of Iraq’s Iranian-backed Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia, in south Lebanon overlooking Northern Israel. He said, “We here with Hezbollah declare our total readiness to stand together with the Lebanese people and the Palestinian cause against Israeli occupation.” Will there be another conflict with Israel involving Lebanon and Gaza as well? The coming days will show.
God tells us to love and bless Israel (Genesis 12:3), and pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6). We must continue to do so until Jesus catches us away in the rapture.
Creation is Groaning and Rumbling: Fires are raging in Southern California… in December? And what volcano has awakened after a 250-year slumber?
A report from Dec. 6 stated how unusual it is to have this many active fires burning in Southern California in December. Statistics show this nearly equals the total of all large December wildfires from 2000 to 2015. And the fires are still raging, with December not nearly over. As of this writing, one death has been reported, several firefighters have been injured, many horses have perished, and hundreds of schools were closed. Pray that these fires dissipate without further loss of life.
In other news of creation groaning, there is yet another volcano rumbling. In Russia this week, the Kambalny volcano started spewing ash after waking from a 250-year slumber.
Pray for the Families of Victims of the School Shooting in New Mexico
A 21-year old man, who decided that he wanted to commit suicide, went into his former high school and chose two random students to murder before turning the gun on himself.
Pray for the Unborn as Mankind Gets More Revolting By the Day (Romans 1:18-32).
In other news this week, our federal tax dollars for quite a number of years have funded the creation of “humanized mice” implanted with tissues taken from aborted babies, which scientists continue to “improve upon.” The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has funded experiments such as “The New Humanized Rodent Model Workshop.” One federally funded scientist attending it described a mouse that was “humanized” with “fetal liver and thymus.” These organs were taken from an aborted baby five to six months after conception.
“For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body” (Romans 8:20-24).
Come, Lord Jesus.
Call to Prayer: Regarding Unholy Alliances
The Unholy Alliance of Spoil Seekers against Israel
Pray for Israel. The unholy U.N. has just passed a new batch of anti-Israel resolutions. The unholy alliance of Russia, Iran and Turkey (along with Sudan who just signed an oil agreement with Russia, and Libya who has close ties with Russia) will surely “sooner rather than later” attack Israel. This will happen after the “matchstick” in Isaiah 17 that likely lights the fires to come. Israel has had enough and keeps warning a world that is not listening. This means that Jesus will soon take us up with Him, and many will be left behind to face the most horrible time that has ever been or will ever be again. Pray for them to receive Christ while they still can.
Unholy Alliances are Responsible for Kate Steinle’s Death and for the Innocent Verdict of her Murderer
Pray for our nation and pray for the family of Kate Steinle. The same unholy alliance of liberal-left Marxist Democrats and RINO’s that are fighting tooth and nail to oust our president and form their New World Order have judges and juries on their side making insane decisions. In California, which became a “sanctuary state” in rebuke of the president’s immigration policies, Kate Steinle was killed by Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, an illegal Mexican immigrant who had already committed several crimes and had come back several times through the U.S. insecure border after being deported each time. Before he killed Kate as she was walking down the street with her father, he was released from a San Francisco jail despite a request by federal immigration authorities to detain him for deportation.
A jury in San Francisco just acquitted him of first and second degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. He also was found not guilty of assault with a semi-automatic weapon (which he’d obtained illegally). He was only found guilty of possessing a firearm by a felon. He claimed the shooting was “an accident.” He fired three shots, but it was an accident? He changed his story several times about how it happened, but it was an accident? The last words Kate said were “Help me, Dad.”
These same unholy alliances are in Europe, and their immigration policies have caused much havoc. Here’s a story that was in the news this week:
African Migrants in England: Belief in Witchcraft and Demonic Possession Linked To 1,500 Child Abuse Cases Each Year
Government statistics show this. And it is believed the figures are higher because local authorities and even professionals who work with children don’t have enough awareness to spot signs of abuse. Experts said that children are increasingly being abused by adults who supposedly want to “get the devil out of them.”
A document stated that concerns began to be raised due to witchcraft belief among migrant African communities in England. The Government launched a national action plan in 2012 to tackle this issue two years after the murder of a 15-year-old boy accused of witchcraft. He was murdered by his sister and her partner on Christmas Day after days of torture. They drowned him in a bathtub during an exorcism.
Such abuse cases include the belief that children are witches or are possessed, but also included are ritual murders where killing of children is thought to bring supernatural benefits, or the use of their body parts is thought to produce strong magical remedies.
In other cases, witchcraft or magic is used to instill fear in children to make them compliant as they’re trafficked for sexual exploitation or slavery. There is even a superstition that calling a wrong number brings malevolent spirits into the home. Also children are scapegoats for misfortunes that befall their family members, such as poverty or unemployment.
The Unholy Alliance of LGBTQI etcetera
There are several stories in the news this week regarding their agenda, which is ruining the minds and bodies of the children—an agenda that is straight from the father of lies, Satan himself, who is going after the most vulnerable in our society.
Teaching Elementary Teachers How to Teach Children about the “Many Genders”
In Ontario, Canada a workshop was held for Elementary School Teachers on how to teach children about LGBT’s. The flyer was entitled “LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP Inclusiveness Training.” This stands for Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Two-Spirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual, and Polyamorous.
Here is the reason given for the title: “The intent of the title was to draw workshop participants (teachers) by acknowledging that keeping track of diverse LGBTQ identities can be overwhelming, especially as our students are continuously identifying new ones. In our union, we use LGBTQ as an umbrella term for all marginalized sexual and gender identities.”
Pre-pubescent Boys Wearing Suggestive Women’s Makeup
The liberal New York Times published a piece on Thanksgiving Day featuring six pre-pubescent boys wearing lipstick and heavy eye makeup. The article called this “refreshing” and mentioned that these boys have tons of followers. NYT even published the links to their pages. Surely this is a dream for NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) and other like-minded reprobates.
Mattel’s Barbie is advertising the LGBT agenda, wearing a tee shirt with rainbow letters spelling out “Love Wins,” a phrase promoted by LGBT activists.
UK Version of Girl Scouts Going Co-Ed in Every Way
An organization similar to Girl Scouts for ages 5 to 25, which began allowing males identifying as females to join Girl Guides in January, now says that those same males can share changing rooms, toilets, tents, and cabins with girls while on camping trips and other excursions.
UK: A Christian Teacher Suspended for Accidentally Calling a Girl a Girl May Lose His Job
Joshua Sutcliffe, who is a Christian pastor and also a math teacher, has been suspended and may lose his job for “misgendering” a student accidentally, even though he apologized immediately. His offense? He said, “Well done, girls” to a group of female students for improving their grades. The group happened to include one who was gender-confused, and the student’s mother complained. This same mother had previously filed a complaint about his distributing Christian flyers at a gay pride march.
This action further highlights the increasing trend of marginalizing Christians publicly and censoring or punishing them because of their beliefs.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent (without self-control), fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady (haughty), highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:1-4,12-15).
Call to Prayer Nov.27: Where to Begin…?
Let’s see…what to choose to ask the brethren to pray about this week…? In these last of the last days before Christ returns, there is no shortage of topics. God, who desires that none should perish, is trying to get the unbelieving world’s attention to turn to His Blessed Son as Savior, who is God in the flesh; for there is no other way by which one can enter Heaven except through Christ, who paid for our sins with His own precious blood.
As the U.S. Celebrated Thanksgiving, More Homeless Than Ever Needed to Be Fed
Homelessness has increased in recent years in major cities across the U.S. in numbers not seen since the Great Depression. Hardest hit of these cities are those in New York, California, Oregon and Washington. The greatest numbers of homeless are veterans, women and children. There is a pattern in all this. Every major city that is poverty stricken is run by liberals, which shows that the poor, who they claim to care so much about, are suffering under their bad government.
Speaking of the Holidays, Should You Buy the Alexa Device for Christmas?
Alexa is programmed with liberal left beliefs. For example: It tells you there are two main categories of the gender binary spectrum, male and female, but that many other categories exist. That said, Steven Crowder of Louder with Crowder pulled a fast one on people regarding the device in his video this week. Crowder turned off the tape after asking it, “Who is Jesus?” Then he apparently asked it something off camera that caused it to answer (after he turned the video back on) that Jesus was a fictional character. Alexa actually says “He was a Jewish preacher and religious leader who is the central figure of Christianity.” He pulled another stunt regarding the question, “Who is Mohammad?” Still, be forewarned that there are liberal left beliefs programmed into Alexa.
New “Experiment” on Our Children Coming to the Educational System
As if the Marxist “useful idiots” that Soviet defector, Yuri Besmenov, warned us of in 1984 haven’t already done enough damage to our youth’s minds in the educational system, etc., Bill Gates doesn’t feel like he’s done enough damage yet with his Common (Communist) Core “experiment” on our children, so he’s planning another “experiment.” What is it? We haven’t been told.
You can also hear this globalist on YouTube saying that we can “reduce the human population through vaccines and health care.” His mention of health care was separate from reproductive so-called health care (aka abortion), which he then added was another way to reduce the population.
The Transgender Agenda Continues to be Forced Upon Our Children
From Breitbart: Teachers should avoid calling female pupils “girls” or “ladies” because it means they are “constantly reminded of their gender,” a former government mental health tsar has said.
Natasha Devon, who was appointed MBE in 2015 for “services to young people,” said the move would help transgendered children as well as encourage female and male students to defy traditional notions of gender, which affect “well-being.” She told the Girls’ School Association’s annual conference in Manchester, England that she would “never walk into a room in an all-girls’ school and say ‘girls’ or ‘ladies’ because it is “patronizing.” Teachers should instead address youngsters as “pupils,” “students,” or even just “people,” she insisted.
The Children of ISIS
There is a huge problem with what to do about the children and wives of ISIS fighters who have been killed or captured, and not just in Iraq. Men came to Iraq from Turkey to join ISIS, but also from Germany, Africa, etc. These nations are willing to take the children back, but hesitate to accept the women, as they are considered to be a threat (having chosen to marry ISIS terrorists). Many young children are living in crowded, filthy conditions in jails with their mothers while the debate goes on.
Bombing of Mosque in Iraq
The death toll is now over 300 dead and over 100 injured in the bombing of an Iraqi mosque. If ISIS has been defeated, then why were ISIS flags seen on the vehicles that converged on the mosque? One survivor said that the terrorists went through the mosque, making sure everyone was dead, and that he survived because he was underneath dead bodies. Over two dozen of the dead were children. It is believed this mosque was targeted because it is considered to be of the Sufi mystical sect who reveres saints and shrines.
Iran Threat Looming Large
Iranian leaders and military generals have ramped up their threats this week. Iran has become the world’s number one threat, so much so that other Arab nations are meeting to discuss what to do, and Saudi Arabia has even aligned itself with Israel and the U.S. for protection. Russia refuses to get Iran to back out of Syria. Israel next door is under the greatest threat and vows to take matters into her own hands if need be. We see the last days prophesied fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39 getting closer by the day.
Proverbs 8: A Call for Wisdom, But in it is Christ
I felt the need to ask all who read this ‘call to prayer’ to read Proverbs 8. Please read the whole proverb, but here is an excerpt:
“Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man. O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things…They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. Receive my instruction…Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways…Blessed is the man that heareth me…For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.”
Proper wisdom can only be found in God’s Word—The Holy Bible—in which one will find Christ.
Call to Prayer: “When will it End?”
We’re asking for prayer this week regarding two concerns, not that there aren’t many more. One is for the injured victims and families of the deceased in yet another mass shooting. On November 13 and 14, 44-year-old Kevin Neal, who had a history of mental and anger issues, including arrests, perpetrated a series of shootings in Rancho Tehama Reserve in California, using a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns. He was barred from owning guns after a stabbing incident in January; however, he manufactured the guns at his home.
He killed five people and wounded 12 others at several crime scenes, including at an elementary school. In addition to the victims who were shot during the rampage, several others were injured by shattered glass.
Neal killed his wife on November 13 and hid her body under the floorboards in their home.The next day, November 14, he killed two neighbors with whom he’d been feuding, claiming they were making meth and that the fumes were injuring his nine dogs. (Neal himself was a pot grower, which is a big business in California Land. His sister has since stated that she believed he was addicted to drugs. If indeed his dogs were affected, perhaps they were nibbling on those plants).
After the initial murders, Neal went on a random shooting spree, firing at vehicles and pedestrians. He ran inside an elementary school, firing at windows and walls, and tried to get inside classrooms, which were locked down by a diligent custodian as soon as shots were heard. This same custodian also rounded up children to get inside and hide in the classrooms when the shooter rammed a stolen truck through the front gates.
Two children were shot and wounded at the school, and a woman was shot as she tried to distract Neal away from the school.After leaving there, Neal continued his rampage before being killed by sheriff deputies.
Six of those shot and wounded were children – two very young students at the school, and three other children from the same family who were wounded when Neal shot at their vehicle. Their mother was also shot.
Six-year-old Aileen Favela said she wasn’t aware of what was happening when a classmate yelled for her to “get down.” She said she was worried about her brother during the shooting. Both are now afraid to go to school. Surely many other children feel the same way.
Victims’ families have turned to online fundraisers to help with medical expenses.
The other request for prayer concerns our nation. The minions of madness, who have proven they’ll stop at nothing to wrest back power, are upping the ante in trying to remove our president from office. Several House Democrats on Wednesday filed articles of impeachment, needless to say for bogus reasons, one of them being the fact that $73,000 in federal tax dollars was spent for Secret Service golf carts at the president’s Mar-a-Lago Florida resort. Seriously? President Trump doesn’t take a salary for one thing; and for another, how many times did Obama play golf while president, which required Secret Service, not to mention the tons of vacations?
Here was another outlandish claim: “It’s time for Congress to take action to stop this reckless and harmful behavior by removing Mr. Trump from office and to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States.” How ironic is that? Since when does the Marxist Democrat Party of today care about our Constitution? A million-dollar ad campaign is being launched to try and stoke public sentiment for their seditious, global agenda. And California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (whose actions prove she isn’t qualified to be in politics, to say the least) continues her rhetoric. At a Glamour magazine event on Monday in New York, she asked attendees to chant along with her, “Impeach him. Impeach Trump.”
The hypocrisy is astounding, but nevertheless is something we should expect in these upside-down last days. Speaking of which, invoking the power of demonic false gods was part of the equation at the “Catharsis on the Mall” in D.C. last weekend, where a statue of Shiva the Destroyer looked upon the Washington Monument; and a giant metal statue of Abraxas the Dragon was rolled through the streets around the Capitol in a protest march. This “demon lord of magic wands” is also present in the game “Dungeons and Dragons.”
“Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:11-16).
The end-of-days birth pangs are upon us and will continue to increase in intensity and frequency. We’re seeing the signs that the Tribulation is near, and only those in Christ will be removed from the earth to escape the wrath to come.
“And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another …And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold… As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:10, 12, 37).
Pray for Sutherland… and More!
We have yet another mass murder! In the small town of 400 people in Sutherland, Texas, many were in the First Baptist Church on Sunday, Nov. 5th, and were methodically mowed down by a madman. 26 people were killed and 20 others were injured.Among those murdered were eight children and an unborn child. Nine of those killed were from the same family, which included the unborn child. As of this writing, some of the injured are still in critical condition. The children suffered the most injuries.
The Left Said Don’t Bother to Pray
So-called “progressives” reacted with venomous criticism to those who offered thoughts and prayers. The vilest of comments came from Hollywood and the political arena. Prayer was mocked and also the victims! Of course they blamed a lack of gun-control laws for the shooting. Yet the very cities with the strictest gun-control laws in our nation have the most shootings.
The Real Problem is Spiritual
Our founding fathers were as imperfect as we all are; but they believed in the power of prayer, and so did most of those who built this nation. However, those who aim to “fundamentally transform America” don’t want prayer. They don’t want God.
Our president offered thoughts and prayers to Sutherland:
“To the families of the victims: We are praying for you and we are here for you, and we ask God to help see you through this very dark period. Scripture teaches us, ‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’”
President Trump needs our continuous prayers to fight off those who mean to take him down along with this nation—the only nation standing in the way of the implementation of the globalists’ New World Order.
They’re Destroying Minds and Bodies of the Children
Stay in continuous prayer for the children, who are under attack in every way from everywhere. In the news this week: A 7th grade teacher gave a lesson on “changing sexes,” including a video on transgender surgery. Google has a YouTube cartoon app in which millions of children are watching Spider-Man urinate on Elsa from ‘Frozen’; Mickey Mouse hit by a car & dying in front of a crying Minnie; Pippa the Pig tortured while screaming and crying, a cartoon character dancing on a stripper pole, etc. An excerpt is shown as proof on the site canadafreepress.com titled, “Parents need to tell Google to Take.Their.YouTube-Kids-App. Down.”
Perversion Knows No Bounds
In the news is the arrest of Democrat politician, Philip Ahr, who went by DaddyX in his online chats. According to investigators, Ahr has sent and received hundreds of child porn images since 2014, some depicting infants and toddlers as well as “sadomasochistic abuse and abuse involving children and animals.”
Pray for and comfort one another. Pray for strength to endure these dark days as we await our Blessed Hope—our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ—to call us Home.
“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:13-15).
Pray for the Injured in NYC Terror Attack and for Families of Those who were Killed, etc.
The Globalist Agenda is to Blame
On October 31, eight people were killed and a dozen injured in New York City when a terrorist ran over bicyclists and rammed a school bus. The victims included students, school staff and tourists from Argentina and Belgium.
One of the students was said to be in critical condition. Three members of one family were injured; the mother received such massive trauma to both legs that they had to be amputated. Her husband and son suffered head and neck injuries.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, calling the killer, Sayfullo Saipov, a “soldier of the caliphate.”
This terrorist is a Muslim from Uzbekistan who came here in 2010 as part of the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, in which people from foreign countries are randomly chosen to receive a green card, allowing them to come to the US. About 50,000 of these green cards are awarded annually. Congress created the program in 1990 to “further diversify” the US. Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer of New York drafted the language creating the program when he was a member of the House of Representatives.
Critics say this program has no justification. Of course it doesn’t, but it fits the globalist agenda. President Trump argued for its elimination last month (as part of any deal to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants), saying the program should have been “merit based.”
Regarding More Minion Madness and Mayhem
Thankfully, Saturday’s “Refuse Fascism” protests, which organizers had hoped would attract many thousands at each location, were not that successful. “Refuse Fascism” is considered to be a non-violent protest organization, as opposed to Antifa. Obviously, those paid Soros thugs were not called upon for Saturday’s march.
As this post is being typed, the Worldwide Million-Mask March has not yet taken place (scheduled for November 5th). It has shown to be more violent every year.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come… evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:1,13).
As always, pray that our nation will not be taken over by the prophesied sinister global government until Jesus calls up His true believers in the rapture.
Prayer is needed regarding Saturday, November 4th.
The group that planned for national protests to begin on November 4th at various locations (which it hopes will continue until the Trump administration is removed) is not called “Antifa.” It is called “Refuse Fascism” and was started by Bob Avakian of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, after the Democrat party (which today shares their same goals) lost the election. They are the real fascists who employ the Marxist tactic of projecting their guilt onto the innocent party in order to create confusion.
The end goal of Marxism and Socialism is Communism; all end badly, as those of us who know real history can attest to and see happening in Venezuela today.
The group’s co-founder, Sunsara Taylor, claims they have not partnered with similar groups, although they have been at protests with Antifa. She claims that their group is non-violent, but does not condemn any tactics others use to protest. Of course, it is reasonable to assume that other Soros’ funded groups, such as Antifa, will join this protest in their joint effort to take down the U.S. and bring on sinister, global government—which the Bible tells us will exist during the Tribulation.
Don’t take the bait. This is what these demonically-inspired groups want so they can blame any violence on Trump supporters. Let the police, and if needed, the National Guard, deal with them. The best thing we can do is to stay home and pray for our law-enforcement officers and military, and that our president—and those who share the same constitutional principles—can hold onto our freedom until Christ calls up His true believers in the rapture.
These deceived minions hate Bible-believing Christianity. A September 28 post on the “Refuse Fascism” Facebook page said that they are against “Bible believers.” And on their website they refer to us as “Christian theocrats…who want to encode their oppressive and hateful values into law.” (Theocrats are considered to be those who support government by divine guidance or by divinely-guided officials).
As for the national blackout drill that will take place from November 4-6, conducted by the Department of Defense, we should not assume it is a “real” blackout. Similar drills have been conducted in recent years and were “simulated” exercises to practice crisis response and information sharing in the event of an EMP attack.
“Even so, come Lord Jesus.”
Call for Continued Prayer for the Children
Satan is targeting the most vulnerable members of society — the children. In every area he aims to influence their minds from an early age: in the education system (preschool through college), on TV, in movies, video games, books, etc.
Drag queens dressed as outrageously as possible read books and sing songs that promote the LGBTQI agenda to small children in New York public libraries. Just this week at the Michelle Obama Public Library in California, a satanic-looking drag queen, complete with goat horns, read to the children. And these children are accompanied by complicit parents! In recent months a Luciferian-looking drag queen was even a guest on a children’s TV show.
Sex trafficking of children is not just lurking deep in the shadows of the Middle East, Africa and Asia as one might expect. It’s become persistent worldwide with some on the receiving end in “high places.”
Ontario is a major center for human trafficking in Canada. London is a popular destination for sex traffickers in the UK due to its proximity to Hwy. 401, the American border and Toronto. The biggest sex exploitation scandal in UK history was recently exposed in Rotherham; it’s been going on for years, largely ignored by authorities — Muslim taxi drivers removing children from homes and schools, and then taking them elsewhere for sex, even dousing them with gasoline as a warning of what would happen to them if they tell.
In the US there is an epidemic of children caught up in sex trafficking. FBI agents and local police carried out a four-day nationwide sweep from Oct.12-15 to rescue children from all 50 states. 84 children have been recovered and 120 alleged traffickers were arrested. In one instance, a man offered up a 3-month-old baby and her 5-year-old sister for a payment of $600. And he was “a friend” of the children’s family!
God’s Word warns ANYONE who ruins His children: “Whoever causes the downfall of one of these little ones who believe in Me–it would be better for him if a heavy millstone were hung around his neck and he were drowned in the depths of the sea!” (Matthew 18:6).
We must stay in constant prayer for the children. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).
Call to Prayer for Those Affected by California Wildfires
A sudden and fast-moving series of fires in Northern California are being called catastrophic and among the deadliest in the state’s history. Diablo winds combined with low humidity and extremely dry conditions are fanning the flames.
Several thousand firefighters are focusing on protecting lives and property, while battling dozens of fires. Desperate family and friends are turning to social media, begging for help in finding missing loved ones, as authorities plead with people to mark themselves safe on the registry and ALE. Thousands of homes and buildings have been destroyed. News agencies are reporting that, across the state, millions of lawns are covered with ash; and thick, gray clouds of smoke hover over densely-populated areas.
Please stay in prayer for all those affected by this continuing devastation, including the firefighters who put themselves in harm’s way to protect them.
