SILVER LINING

If there’s any silver lining to this pandemic, it’s that a lot of people who had been brainwashed into thinking socialism could work just dandy if only the “right people” were in charge of all that government power over everything are getting a real-time lesson in how little power it takes to corrupt some people absolutely. Across the nation, we’re getting reports of authorities violating Americans’ Constitutional rights with heavy-handed enforcement of policies that have no bearing on the spread of the coronavirus. Like yesterday’s story from Greenville, Mississippi, about $500 citations being given to people who showed up for a drive-in church service, sitting in isolation inside their own cars.

It’s often been said that if you scratch a “progressive,” you’ll find an authoritarian underneath, and they’re certainly proving that they can never be trusted with any power above the level of dog catcher. Add to that list Kentucky’s Gov. Andy Beshear, who is getting his Stasi on by ordering local officials to record the license plates of anyone who attends a church service on Easter Sunday, so they can be forced into a 14-day quarantine. It apparently doesn’t matter how many precautions the people take to prevent the spread of the virus, Big Brother will be watching and punishing.

Not surprisingly, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was not pleased.

A reminder to the voters of Kentucky: Beshear was elected just last year when he defeated the Republican Governor by a margin of just 0.37%. I would hope that more than 0.37% of the voting public who didn’t vote in 2019 are now motivated to show up in the next election and let him know what they think about this.

MUST-SEE VIDEOS 

President Trump’s message from the Oval Office, marking Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Note that we once again have a President who has no hesitation about saying the phrase “our Lord and savior Jesus Christ” in the White House.

First Lady Melania Trump offers an inspiring message of gratitude to all the medical personnel and other essential workers who are keeping America safe and healthy during the pandemic.

HOW TO "THINK" LIKE AN IDENTITY-POLITICS OBSESSED LIBERAL

(1.) If Trump health officials don’t acknowledge that the coronavirus disproportionately affects minority communities, call them racist.

(2.) If a Trump health official says the virus is disproportionately affecting minority communities and offers them advice on how to avoid it, call him racist.

CUOMO: PROJECTIONS WRONG

In an appearance on Rudy Giuliani’s radio show, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said planning for the COVID-19 coronavirus was made more difficult by the fact that computer models of infection and death rates have proved completely unreliable, as initial apocalyptic predictions have been repeatedly scaled back.

Cuomo said, “…All those statisticians have been 100 percent wrong at this point. And we’ve been following the models because that was the only blueprint, but they haven’t turned out to be correct. Sort of like the old days when we tried to predict a storm by listening to the weather forecasts.”

That’s a very apt analogy. I suspect that once this is over, a lot of people will be looking at the coronavirus computer models that were off by 300% or more and ask if this is the same technology we’re relying on to dismantle the world economy to prevent a predicted rise in temperature of a few degrees 100 years from now.

BILL MAHER HOMERUN

Over the years, I’ve had readers question why I defend Bill Maher. The fact is, I am often at odds with Bill’s comments, but I respect the fact that he lets people state their views and argues with them rather than attempting to silence them. Besides, every so often, he gets something so right that he knocks it out of the ballpark.

STORY CHANGE

I told you about the attempt by Senate Republicans to add more funds to the loan program to save small businesses because there was such a crush of applications, and how it was blocked by Democrats, who wanted to add more spending for other things and were willing to let small businesses die while they held emergency aid hostage (and not for the first time…in the past month.) Amazingly, CNN, Bloomberg News, Politico and NBC News all got that correct in their headlines. But less than an hour later, all four changed their headlines from reporting accurately that Democrats had blocked the bill to the vague statement that the bill had been blocked by a stalemate or impasse between Democrats and Republicans.

I’m guessing they received urgent calls on their Marching Orders Hotline from the DNC. I’m sure if they could think of any way to blame it solely on the Republicans, they would have, but since it was blocked entirely by the Democrats, the best they could do was blame both sides equally. Journalism!

50TH ANNIVERSARY

As a lifelong devotee of the NASA space program, I must note that today marks the 50th anniversary of the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission to stage the third lunar landing. When an oxygen tank exploded, the crew radioed those chilling, now famous words: “Houston, we have a problem.” The world held its breath and a likely tragedy turned into a story of triumphant American heroes as the astronauts and the NASA staffers back on Earth went to work to accomplish the seemingly impossible: bringing the space crew back down to Earth safe and sound. Despite the recordings in which they sound so cool and professional, Apollo 13 commander Jim Lovell later admitted that they estimated their chances of survival at no more than 10 percent.

This is an extraordinary story of bravery under the most trying conditions, triumph over impossible odds and the nearly unlimited potential of the human mind.

    Maybe one or two Dem media people are becoming s little embarrassed. Surely the .American people realize that the practices in China are not related to any Chinese restaurants. It is just stupid to blame an entire ethnic group for the practices of a few. I thought we had not done that since Dem Roosevelt incarcerated Japanese Americans. Let’s remember who did what to whom.

    I foresee another impeachment trial coming our way, if Trump is re-elected, for not starting the travel shut down and shutting down the economy early enough. Can you imagine what the attacks would have been if he had started in December when WHO was downplaying the whole thing and China was keeping quiet. There. Is man in our neighborhood who sends out almost daily Facebook comments to get get rid of the President, NOW. He just tells lies every time he opens his mouth. But the person never says what he is lying about.

    Happy Easter, Governor. Keep up there good work. May God bless you, your family and your crew.

    Governor Huckabee,
    Great topics of interest tonight on the Evening Addition. With all of the struggles,pestilence and death we are all facing now, I thought that some great statistics would be appropriate. According to the U.N. approximately 360,000 new faces showed up this day and everyday thanks to new life blessings created and given by the Almighty God of Israel. He also gave His only Son Jesus Christ to death to make eternal atonement for all who believe!! To give new life the ultimate and eternal gift. Maybe our reporting and focus should be more on life than death. The Good News of Jesus Christ is available to all !!
    Choose Life. Happy Easter

    The pandemic computer models do not account for the power of the blood of Y'shua at this Passover time being applied to the doorposts of the hearts of believers, as the blood of a sacrificial lamb was applied to the doorposts of the Israelites in Egypt. And if our national leaders would acknowledge the spiritual conflict that results in our apparent powerlessness to deal with such manifestations of the curse of Adam, and place their nations under the blood of Y'shua, we would have less of such situations to deal with, and be more effective in conquering those we do face.

    1. GOVT employees LIE - remember the FBI and all their lying - even to the FISA Court ...........so all the projections - modeling - are undoubtedly based on either LIES or numbers just picked out of the air ....the "mouthpieces on TV" are not doing any of the "math" or "engaging their brains" on the validity of the "math"........remember also computers = "garbage in-garbage out"
    2. COVID 19 does not select victims by "ethnic" or "color of skin" ......but Ghettos" "Concrete Jungles" are undoubtedly a magnet - lack of growing green like trees - over crowding everywhere - obesity - poor diets - smoking - alcohol - drugs - lack of exercise - depression and ...........

    To me, the bigger question on China's culpability as to the spread of this Wuhan virus is not so much the particulars of its launch point but why was this virus contained to the immediate Wuhan area, (and one other remote province weeks after the initial outbreak), and was not spread elsewhere within the borders of China? The reality is that this virus spreads very quickly and easily both tactically and airborne and while China was telling the world through WHO and its other propaganda machines (notably the US media) that this virus was not easily spread and allowing over 5 MILLION local Chinese tourists to travel out from Wuhan to seed the rest of the world except where hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is not regularly used. At the same time China had to have been restricting movement within its own borders and isolating Wuhan to prevent its spread within their own country because no other major provinces or cities within China were affected by this virus. Worldwide, this Wuhan virus completely saturated every other susceptible country that it spread to, along with every major city within their respective borders. Yet, outside Wuhan and one other small outbreak within China, NO deaths were reported caused by this virus in any of the other major cities and provinces in China, if I am not mistaken.

    To me, this signals China's culpability, complicity and guilt in the intentional spread of this lethal plague. Please explain the incredible good fortune of China with a virus that has no boundaries, conscience or political affiliation where isolation and extreme diligence are not practiced. Please explain why the China market economy was the only one in the world that did not suffer HUGE losses while China has been buying up the US stock market (and other markets) and fire sale prices throughout this ordeal to gain control of intellectual properties and critical technologies. Please explain how China knew to buy over $2 BILLION of PPE and other virus fighting necessities just before the onset of this plague. To me, China has a lot of explaining to do, and our crooked media, will not be of much help in getting to the truth of this disaster.

    I am guessing that Bill Maher is a liberal and not a leftest. There is a great video from Prager U on the difference between a liberal and a leftest. Unfortunately, the mainstream media and the Democratic Party has been taken over by leftest. A liberal will let you speak and argue with you. A leftest will not let you speak and will only allow their ideas to be promoted. There are liberals who have found that they get more respect from conservatives than leftest.

    Maher, I have watched him a couple of times and tried to see his point of
    view I found few facts mostly opinions and they came from the hate pile which I find to be huge. When one hopes for an American monetary recession I can not accept him for a fellow I would take any advice from he seems to have a good IQ but a very hate filled person. Cuomo has a little break from me the models were wrong however this is still a person loaded with hate for people, maybe a little strong, no common sense, he still is self serving and he pays little attention to detail can not take responsibility for his errors he was lucky Donald Trump still loves New York he took that city and put it on his back to keep it from sinking into the Abyss. Cuomo will still be ungrateful. Trump should win New York however a city and state that voted for Dumb and Dummer may be just a dream.

    I would be so glad if your show could be on anything but TBN. I've been increasingly disliking their programming, their so called upgrading of the way they run things since the " Crouch Kids" took over. For instance, on the TBN website to get your program, they very recently changed it to a sign in with password setup and are allowing commercial advertising. I really like TCT so much better, can you not switch to another Christian broadcasting network? Also, they made it so I cannot get the broadcast on my tv as I do not have cable. I used to get TBN on over the air. TBN is missing out on a lot of people because of their management. I did sign in so I can watch your program but yours is the only thing I watch on TBN and also, I won't send them any more donations but send it to TCT and Samaritan's Purse.

    America, Arise to Victory
    Over Enemies Unseen and Seen

    Satan is a powerful presence in this world, controlling many by his schemes as the master of lies, deception and champion of hatred for God. Although he now knows that his fate is sealed, he still “prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour”. He plays “the long game” baiting by stealth, looking to take down the unwary and unperceptive believers who may be unprepared to recognize and challenge him.

    However; when followers of Jesus Christ are alerted, they band together with power of the Holy Spirit, their eyes are opened, and they are rallied by seeing that “there are more with us than those who are with them” – the enemy. During the battle they “are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed, perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed”.

    When the enemy attacks and unseen fears “go viral”, faithful Christians become strengthened to rise up, stand firm, and counter-attack with self-sacrificing dedication, creative, imaginative and innovative solutions and united collaboration to eliminate the threat. They are enabled to separate and protect the afflicted, care for the wounded, and even reach out to work among the innocent held prisoner by the enemy. All these works reveal the great power of Almighty God whose love for his creation overcomes fear of the destroyer. When God comes alongside His children, nothing or no one can separate them from His love.

    Let us remember that the greatest “comebacks” from such threats throughout history are credited to God, whose grace is sufficient. The battle is hand-to-hand, heart-to heart; but it is always the hearts of the faithful who prevail over those who do not know God.
    Answer His Call
    Enlist today in the army of God! Be trained in His ways; put on His armor.
    Live FOR Him today; live WITH Him for eternity.

    A Prayer for Salvation of a Nation

    David, a country shepherd boy equipped with skill and courage to protect his father’s sheep, found himself stepping forward in confidence to confront a powerful enemy who had intimidated an entire army. Centuries later, “country boys” still find unanticipated “opportunities” to step forward with courage to confront powerful enemies who threaten our nation. Today’s “unseen enemy” is no stranger, but a demon born in the hell of deprivation, starvation, and oppression imposed by ungodly forces afflicted with pathologic paranoia who in their depravity seek to control the world.

    Just as the early followers of Christ cried out to God in the midst of intense, persecution from evil beyond description, so we also find ourselves crying out to God today with repentant hearts seeking relief from a global pandemic attributable to the unimaginable circumstances which unleashed this pestilence. Hell was its home – now it roams unchecked.

    When God hears our cry, he is not slow to respond. He does want us to follow His commands as we equip ourselves to help one-another serve one-another and reach out even to the innocent in the homeland of the pestilence. We are to be obedient and self-controlled as we isolate ourselves from the reach of the pestilence and work together in finding new solutions to vaccinate and eliminate the conditions that perpetuate this threat. Let us together present our petition:

    Hear our prayer Almighty and loving God.
    You know the depth of our despair,
    That we can hardly draw a breath of your air
    In bodies that we cannot replace except by your grace.
    We humbly beg you to turn your ear, hear our cry,
    Look upon our disgrace.
    We hang by a thread in dread
    Of that which we cannot see.
    Turn us away from this path of wrath.
    Open our eyes to see your gleaming legions
    that outnumber our enemy and display your power.
    In this terrible hour.
    Calm this storm, turn the tide,
    Roll back the stone that crushes our pride
    And open a cleft to hide.
    Comfort our dying,
    Accomplish what we are trying
    To little avail.
    Shelter us from heavens hail.
    All evil pales when you lift your veil.
    Lift up your countenance,
    make your face to shine upon us
    and give us your peace.
    Your love endures forever and ever.
    Your love conquers all.
    Strengthen our love for one-another
    Help us to forgive as you forgave.
    As all our sins you have covered,
    May no one our breath smother.
    Save us from our sin of doubt.
    We know
    As we fret and pout,
    the evil one has no clout.
    Refresh us with your word,
    hold us in your hand,
    heal our land.
    Our plea in humility is
    Confession of our futility.
    We have given up our trust,
    Now we are left in the dust. The dustbin of sin
    We know we are not forgotten,
    but the begotten of you.
    Let us taste your sweet word
    “As it was written”.

    .Sprinkle us with living water
    O God- revive us again!
    All these things we pray
    In the Name of Jesus Christ
    Your Son
    Our Savior
    Immanuel

    Amen

    As a thinking person I can see no way any democrat could be elected but then I THINK that the answer lies in the Fact that the media is totally brainwashed or braindead but will support anyone who is the left of Bernie because they still contend that Trumps is illegal. The Dims have already put Jim Clyburn in charge of the Next round of Impeachments in 2021. ( Hows that for confidence in their ability to win in 2020 ). So my advice to the Patriots is get out the vote just like the Democrats even if that means digging up Grandpa and dragging him to the voting booth. [Hey! what's good for the Goose is good for the Gander] As a humorous bit of history , In my former life I was lounging in the Drilling Rig Toolpushers office while in drydock when a roustabout who had just relieved his opposite when he stuck his head in the office and told the Pusher that he needed to go home because his grandfather had just died and he needed to attend the Funeral as a Pallbearer! The pusher just rolled his eyes and said " Go ahead but he better stay buried this time" you pulled this on My offset last hitch.

    Mike, I am going to do what I have been doing in the last few comments I have written and copy, and paste, statements you made in this newsletter and put my response TO them in capital letters: You stated:

    If there’s any silver lining to this pandemic, it’s that a lot of people who had been brainwashed into thinking socialism could work just dandy if only the “right people” were in charge of all that government power over everything are getting a real-time lesson in how little power it takes to corrupt some people absolutely. "

    I MUST ASSUME THAT ANYONE WHO WOULD THINK THAT "SOCIALISM COULD WORK JUST DANDY IF ONLY THE 'RIGHT PEOPLE' WERE IN CHARGE OF ALL THAT GOVERNMENT POWER" IS NOT A CHRISTIAN BECAUSE HUMAN NATURE TENDS TO WANT TO PLAY A ONE UPMANSHIP GAME AND DOES NOT TAKE KINDLY TO SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT SUBMIT TO HIS LEADERSHIP-GIVEN POWER.

    Across the nation, we’re getting reports of authorities violating Americans’ Constitutional rights with heavy-handed enforcement of policies that have no bearing on the spread of the coronavirus. Like yesterday’s story from Greenville, Mississippi, about $500 citations being given to people who showed up for a drive-in church service, sitting in isolation inside their own cars.

    WHILE IT MAY BE TRUE THAT PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN ISOLATION INSIDE THEIR OWN CARS WERE NOT ENDANGERING THE LIVES OF OTHER PEOPLE, THEY BROKE A GOVERNMENT "LAW" THAT FORBID THEM TO DO THIS.....AND IS THE WAY THE GOVERNMENT RESPONDED TO THEIR VIOLATION OF A MAN-MADE LAW ANY DIFFERENT TO THE WAY THE GOVERNMENT HAS RESPONDED TO WHAT THEY CLAIMED WAS OUR PRESIDENT'S VIOLATION OF A MAN-MADE LAW FOR WHICH THEY WANTED TO IMPEACH HIM?....SINCE GOD'S JUDGMENT ON AMERICA IS BECAUSE OF ALL THE EVIL HATRED THAT HAS BEEN SPEWED AT OUR PRESIDENT...AND THE FACT THAT SO MANY AMERICANS CANNOT DISAGREE WITH ON ANOTHER WITHOUT KILLING ONE ANOTHER...WHY DON'T CHRISTIANS, WHO ARE CRYING OUT AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT'S POSTURE TOWARD THEM AS BEING A VIOLATION OF THEIR "CONSTITUTIONAL" RIGHTS, CRY OUT AS LOUDLY AGAINST THE FACT THAT THEY ARE NOW LIVING IN A COUNTRY WHERE ONE IS NOT ABLE TO DISAGREE WITH SOMEONE WITHOUT FEAR OF BEING SHOT TO DEATH.. WHICH IS A VIOLATION OF OUR GOD-GIVEN RIGHT AS HUMAN BEINGS...TO BE ABLE TO DISAGREE WITH ONE ANOTHER, IN HIS LOVE....BECAUSE HIS LOVE IS NOT ABOUT AGREEING WITH!

    It has been said that if you scratch a “progressive,” you’ll find an authoritarian underneath, and they’re certainly proving that they can never be trusted with any power above the level of dog catcher. Add to that list Kentucky’s Gov. Andy Beshear, who is getting his Stasi on by ordering local officials to record the license plates of anyone who attends a church service on Easter Sunday, so they can be forced into a 14-day quarantine. It apparently doesn’t matter how many precautions the people take to prevent the spread of the virus, Big Brother will be watching and punishing.

    BECAUSE I HAPPEN TO BELIEVE GOD IS USING THIS SITUATION TO DISCIPLINE THE CHURCHES....NOT FOR FAILING TO ADHERE TO WHAT THE GOVERNMENT WANTS THEM TO DO, BUT FOR WHAT HE WANTS THEM TO DO...I AGREE THAT OUR "BIG BROTHER".....JESUS CHRIST.... WILL BE WATCHING AND PUNISHING ! "

    Maybe one or two Dem media people are becoming s little embarrassed. Surely the .American people realize that the practices in China are not related to any Chinese restaurants. It is just stupid to blame an entire ethnic group for the practices of a few. I thought we had not done that since Dem Roosevelt incarcerated Japanese Americans. Let’s remember who did what to whom.

    I foresee another impeachment trial coming our way, if Trump is re-elected, for not starting the travel shut down and shutting down the economy early enough. Can you imagine what the attacks would have been if he had started in December when WHO was downplaying the whole thing and China was keeping quiet. There. Is man in our neighborhood who sends out almost daily Facebook comments to get get rid of the President, NOW. He just tells lies every time he opens his mouth. But the person never says what he is lying about.

    Happy Easter, Governor. Keep up there good work. May God bless you, your family and your crew.

    Governor Huckabee,
    Great topics of interest tonight on the Evening Addition. With all of the struggles,pestilence and death we are all facing now, I thought that some great statistics would be appropriate. According to the U.N. approximately 360,000 new faces showed up this day and everyday thanks to new life blessings created and given by the Almighty God of Israel. He also gave His only Son Jesus Christ to death to make eternal atonement for all who believe!! To give new life the ultimate and eternal gift. Maybe our reporting and focus should be more on life than death. The Good News of Jesus Christ is available to all !!
    Choose Life. Happy Easter

    The pandemic computer models do not account for the power of the blood of Y'shua at this Passover time being applied to the doorposts of the hearts of believers, as the blood of a sacrificial lamb was applied to the doorposts of the Israelites in Egypt. And if our national leaders would acknowledge the spiritual conflict that results in our apparent powerlessness to deal with such manifestations of the curse of Adam, and place their nations under the blood of Y'shua, we would have less of such situations to deal with, and be more effective in conquering those we do face.

    Christ is Risen, Verily He is Risen, Mike!
    And this is the basis for our firm, continued Hope, that Christ's Father's Will, (your Father and mine, Mike), will triumph when it's time.
    We must pray for the salvation of Nancy Pelosi; Chuck Schumer; Adam Schiff and Durban, another gone bad Dem. Do I want to pray for them? NO! But if I don't, I'll have to find another religion.

    1. GOVT employees LIE - remember the FBI and all their lying - even to the FISA Court ...........so all the projections - modeling - are undoubtedly based on either LIES or numbers just picked out of the air ....the "mouthpieces on TV" are not doing any of the "math" or "engaging their brains" on the validity of the "math"........remember also computers = "garbage in-garbage out"
    2. COVID 19 does not select victims by "ethnic" or "color of skin" ......but Ghettos" "Concrete Jungles" are undoubtedly a magnet - lack of growing green like trees - over crowding everywhere - obesity - poor diets - smoking - alcohol - drugs - lack of exercise - depression and ...........

    To me, the bigger question on China's culpability as to the spread of this Wuhan virus is not so much the particulars of its launch point but why was this virus contained to the immediate Wuhan area, (and one other remote province weeks after the initial outbreak), and was not spread elsewhere within the borders of China? The reality is that this virus spreads very quickly and easily both tactically and airborne and while China was telling the world through WHO and its other propaganda machines (notably the US media) that this virus was not easily spread and allowing over 5 MILLION local Chinese tourists to travel out from Wuhan to seed the rest of the world except where hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is not regularly used. At the same time China had to have been restricting movement within its own borders and isolating Wuhan to prevent its spread within their own country because no other major provinces or cities within China were affected by this virus. Worldwide, this Wuhan virus completely saturated every other susceptible country that it spread to, along with every major city within their respective borders. Yet, outside Wuhan and one other small outbreak within China, NO deaths were reported caused by this virus in any of the other major cities and provinces in China, if I am not mistaken.

    To me, this signals China's culpability, complicity and guilt in the intentional spread of this lethal plague. Please explain the incredible good fortune of China with a virus that has no boundaries, conscience or political affiliation where isolation and extreme diligence are not practiced. Please explain why the China market economy was the only one in the world that did not suffer HUGE losses while China has been buying up the US stock market (and other markets) and fire sale prices throughout this ordeal to gain control of intellectual properties and critical technologies. Please explain how China knew to buy over $2 BILLION of PPE and other virus fighting necessities just before the onset of this plague. To me, China has a lot of explaining to do, and our crooked media, will not be of much help in getting to the truth of this disaster.

    Cuomo can not be trusted EVER! He is cabal of top order, true evil incarnate. Don't let him fool you with his bashing of the computer models, there is a purpose for him doing so, and it's not to benefit anyone but himself.

    I am guessing that Bill Maher is a liberal and not a leftest. There is a great video from Prager U on the difference between a liberal and a leftest. Unfortunately, the mainstream media and the Democratic Party has been taken over by leftest. A liberal will let you speak and argue with you. A leftest will not let you speak and will only allow their ideas to be promoted. There are liberals who have found that they get more respect from conservatives than leftest.

    Maher, I have watched him a couple of times and tried to see his point of
    view I found few facts mostly opinions and they came from the hate pile which I find to be huge. When one hopes for an American monetary recession I can not accept him for a fellow I would take any advice from he seems to have a good IQ but a very hate filled person. Cuomo has a little break from me the models were wrong however this is still a person loaded with hate for people, maybe a little strong, no common sense, he still is self serving and he pays little attention to detail can not take responsibility for his errors he was lucky Donald Trump still loves New York he took that city and put it on his back to keep it from sinking into the Abyss. Cuomo will still be ungrateful. Trump should win New York however a city and state that voted for Dumb and Dummer may be just a dream.

    I would be so glad if your show could be on anything but TBN. I've been increasingly disliking their programming, their so called upgrading of the way they run things since the " Crouch Kids" took over. For instance, on the TBN website to get your program, they very recently changed it to a sign in with password setup and are allowing commercial advertising. I really like TCT so much better, can you not switch to another Christian broadcasting network? Also, they made it so I cannot get the broadcast on my tv as I do not have cable. I used to get TBN on over the air. TBN is missing out on a lot of people because of their management. I did sign in so I can watch your program but yours is the only thing I watch on TBN and also, I won't send them any more donations but send it to TCT and Samaritan's Purse.

    Could your doctor friends see if Corona Virus and Diphtheria might be related? They have the same breathing symptoms and there is a vaccine for Diphtheria that might work for Corona.

    America, Arise to Victory
    Over Enemies Unseen and Seen

    Satan is a powerful presence in this world, controlling many by his schemes as the master of lies, deception and champion of hatred for God. Although he now knows that his fate is sealed, he still “prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour”. He plays “the long game” baiting by stealth, looking to take down the unwary and unperceptive believers who may be unprepared to recognize and challenge him.

    However; when followers of Jesus Christ are alerted, they band together with power of the Holy Spirit, their eyes are opened, and they are rallied by seeing that “there are more with us than those who are with them” – the enemy. During the battle they “are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed, perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed”.

    When the enemy attacks and unseen fears “go viral”, faithful Christians become strengthened to rise up, stand firm, and counter-attack with self-sacrificing dedication, creative, imaginative and innovative solutions and united collaboration to eliminate the threat. They are enabled to separate and protect the afflicted, care for the wounded, and even reach out to work among the innocent held prisoner by the enemy. All these works reveal the great power of Almighty God whose love for his creation overcomes fear of the destroyer. When God comes alongside His children, nothing or no one can separate them from His love.

    Let us remember that the greatest “comebacks” from such threats throughout history are credited to God, whose grace is sufficient. The battle is hand-to-hand, heart-to heart; but it is always the hearts of the faithful who prevail over those who do not know God.
    Answer His Call
    Enlist today in the army of God! Be trained in His ways; put on His armor.
    Live FOR Him today; live WITH Him for eternity.

    A Prayer for Salvation of a Nation

    David, a country shepherd boy equipped with skill and courage to protect his father’s sheep, found himself stepping forward in confidence to confront a powerful enemy who had intimidated an entire army. Centuries later, “country boys” still find unanticipated “opportunities” to step forward with courage to confront powerful enemies who threaten our nation. Today’s “unseen enemy” is no stranger, but a demon born in the hell of deprivation, starvation, and oppression imposed by ungodly forces afflicted with pathologic paranoia who in their depravity seek to control the world.

    Just as the early followers of Christ cried out to God in the midst of intense, persecution from evil beyond description, so we also find ourselves crying out to God today with repentant hearts seeking relief from a global pandemic attributable to the unimaginable circumstances which unleashed this pestilence. Hell was its home – now it roams unchecked.

    When God hears our cry, he is not slow to respond. He does want us to follow His commands as we equip ourselves to help one-another serve one-another and reach out even to the innocent in the homeland of the pestilence. We are to be obedient and self-controlled as we isolate ourselves from the reach of the pestilence and work together in finding new solutions to vaccinate and eliminate the conditions that perpetuate this threat. Let us together present our petition:

    Hear our prayer Almighty and loving God.
    You know the depth of our despair,
    That we can hardly draw a breath of your air
    In bodies that we cannot replace except by your grace.
    We humbly beg you to turn your ear, hear our cry,
    Look upon our disgrace.
    We hang by a thread in dread
    Of that which we cannot see.
    Turn us away from this path of wrath.
    Open our eyes to see your gleaming legions
    that outnumber our enemy and display your power.
    In this terrible hour.
    Calm this storm, turn the tide,
    Roll back the stone that crushes our pride
    And open a cleft to hide.
    Comfort our dying,
    Accomplish what we are trying
    To little avail.
    Shelter us from heavens hail.
    All evil pales when you lift your veil.
    Lift up your countenance,
    make your face to shine upon us
    and give us your peace.
    Your love endures forever and ever.
    Your love conquers all.
    Strengthen our love for one-another
    Help us to forgive as you forgave.
    As all our sins you have covered,
    May no one our breath smother.
    Save us from our sin of doubt.
    We know
    As we fret and pout,
    the evil one has no clout.
    Refresh us with your word,
    hold us in your hand,
    heal our land.
    Our plea in humility is
    Confession of our futility.
    We have given up our trust,
    Now we are left in the dust. The dustbin of sin
    We know we are not forgotten,
    but the begotten of you.
    Let us taste your sweet word
    “As it was written”.

    .Sprinkle us with living water
    O God- revive us again!
    All these things we pray
    In the Name of Jesus Christ
    Your Son
    Our Savior
    Immanuel

    Amen

    As a thinking person I can see no way any democrat could be elected but then I THINK that the answer lies in the Fact that the media is totally brainwashed or braindead but will support anyone who is the left of Bernie because they still contend that Trumps is illegal. The Dims have already put Jim Clyburn in charge of the Next round of Impeachments in 2021. ( Hows that for confidence in their ability to win in 2020 ). So my advice to the Patriots is get out the vote just like the Democrats even if that means digging up Grandpa and dragging him to the voting booth. [Hey! what's good for the Goose is good for the Gander] As a humorous bit of history , In my former life I was lounging in the Drilling Rig Toolpushers office while in drydock when a roustabout who had just relieved his opposite when he stuck his head in the office and told the Pusher that he needed to go home because his grandfather had just died and he needed to attend the Funeral as a Pallbearer! The pusher just rolled his eyes and said " Go ahead but he better stay buried this time" you pulled this on My offset last hitch.

    I have said that this is how people find themselves under different governments than they are used to having., They just go blindly along with whatever they’re told. And snitch on those who buck the system..It’s a little scary, even though I know that this is all for the best here.

    Mike, I am going to do what I have been doing in the last few comments I have written and copy, and paste, statements you made in this newsletter and put my response TO them in capital letters: You stated:

    If there’s any silver lining to this pandemic, it’s that a lot of people who had been brainwashed into thinking socialism could work just dandy if only the “right people” were in charge of all that government power over everything are getting a real-time lesson in how little power it takes to corrupt some people absolutely. "

    I MUST ASSUME THAT ANYONE WHO WOULD THINK THAT "SOCIALISM COULD WORK JUST DANDY IF ONLY THE 'RIGHT PEOPLE' WERE IN CHARGE OF ALL THAT GOVERNMENT POWER" IS NOT A CHRISTIAN BECAUSE HUMAN NATURE TENDS TO WANT TO PLAY A ONE UPMANSHIP GAME AND DOES NOT TAKE KINDLY TO SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT SUBMIT TO HIS LEADERSHIP-GIVEN POWER.

    Across the nation, we’re getting reports of authorities violating Americans’ Constitutional rights with heavy-handed enforcement of policies that have no bearing on the spread of the coronavirus. Like yesterday’s story from Greenville, Mississippi, about $500 citations being given to people who showed up for a drive-in church service, sitting in isolation inside their own cars.

    WHILE IT MAY BE TRUE THAT PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN ISOLATION INSIDE THEIR OWN CARS WERE NOT ENDANGERING THE LIVES OF OTHER PEOPLE, THEY BROKE A GOVERNMENT "LAW" THAT FORBID THEM TO DO THIS.....AND IS THE WAY THE GOVERNMENT RESPONDED TO THEIR VIOLATION OF A MAN-MADE LAW ANY DIFFERENT TO THE WAY THE GOVERNMENT HAS RESPONDED TO WHAT THEY CLAIMED WAS OUR PRESIDENT'S VIOLATION OF A MAN-MADE LAW FOR WHICH THEY WANTED TO IMPEACH HIM?....SINCE GOD'S JUDGMENT ON AMERICA IS BECAUSE OF ALL THE EVIL HATRED THAT HAS BEEN SPEWED AT OUR PRESIDENT...AND THE FACT THAT SO MANY AMERICANS CANNOT DISAGREE WITH ON ANOTHER WITHOUT KILLING ONE ANOTHER...WHY DON'T CHRISTIANS, WHO ARE CRYING OUT AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT'S POSTURE TOWARD THEM AS BEING A VIOLATION OF THEIR "CONSTITUTIONAL" RIGHTS, CRY OUT AS LOUDLY AGAINST THE FACT THAT THEY ARE NOW LIVING IN A COUNTRY WHERE ONE IS NOT ABLE TO DISAGREE WITH SOMEONE WITHOUT FEAR OF BEING SHOT TO DEATH.. WHICH IS A VIOLATION OF OUR GOD-GIVEN RIGHT AS HUMAN BEINGS...TO BE ABLE TO DISAGREE WITH ONE ANOTHER, IN HIS LOVE....BECAUSE HIS LOVE IS NOT ABOUT AGREEING WITH!

    It has been said that if you scratch a “progressive,” you’ll find an authoritarian underneath, and they’re certainly proving that they can never be trusted with any power above the level of dog catcher. Add to that list Kentucky’s Gov. Andy Beshear, who is getting his Stasi on by ordering local officials to record the license plates of anyone who attends a church service on Easter Sunday, so they can be forced into a 14-day quarantine. It apparently doesn’t matter how many precautions the people take to prevent the spread of the virus, Big Brother will be watching and punishing.

    BECAUSE I HAPPEN TO BELIEVE GOD IS USING THIS SITUATION TO DISCIPLINE THE CHURCHES....NOT FOR FAILING TO ADHERE TO WHAT THE GOVERNMENT WANTS THEM TO DO, BUT FOR WHAT HE WANTS THEM TO DO...I AGREE THAT OUR "BIG BROTHER".....JESUS CHRIST.... WILL BE WATCHING AND PUNISHING ! "
