LA Court Holds John MacArthur’s Church in Contempt for Hugging, Singing and Laughing

LA Court Holds John MacArthur’s Church in Contempt for Hugging, Singing and Laughing

Los Angeles County is asking a state court to hold Grace Community Church in contempt of court for hugging, singing and laughing at health department regulations during a Sunday church service!

No I’m not making this up!

Sounds like a great church to me!

Continue to pray for Pastor John MacArthur and Grace Community Church as they spearhead the fight for the First Amendment for all churches in America.

If America doesn’t wake up the devil will shut down every church in America!

Held in Contempt for

Hugging, Singing and Laughing

At the beginning, Pastor John MacArthur listed out requirements from the (health department) protocol,” county health official Benjamin Mock wrote. “Attendees responded to some of the restrictions Pastor MacArthur identified by laughing.

Oh, the horror.

“During the service, attendees sang two hymns,” Mock wrote in the court document. “I also observed attendees hugging and shaking hands.”

Well, sweet mercy — Christians hugging one another?

Better call in the National Guard.

Instead, the county sent environmental health specialists to the Sunday service. At least one security guard refused to let the government agents into the building.

The court document revealed that at least one security guard was issued an “administrative citation” for interfering with a public health officer.

Fewer than five percent of the people we observed were wearing face coverings,” the government agent reported.

Social distancing was not being observed.”

And perhaps the most egregious activity came at the end of the sermon when the Christians (brace yourself) walked out the doors.

No instructions or guidance was given regarding maintaining social distance while exiting the worship center,” the court document states. “There were no directional markings on the floor. Individuals streamed out of the doors without practicing social distancing.”

Church leaders have been told to show up in court on Friday.

LA Health officials are literally trying to hold the church in contempt not just for being open, but for people hugging each other and shaking hands. And laughing.

Thou shalt not chuckle at the ignorance of the California health department overlords.

Trump Trumpets Middle East Peace and Signs ‘Abraham Accord’ Peace Treaty at the White House

Trump Trumpets Middle East Peace and Signs ‘Abraham Accord’ Peace Treaty at the White House

Signing the peace treaty Tuesday was a remarkable day of prophetic significance as President Trump continues to accelerate end time events.

President Trump predicted eventual peace in the Middle East as he hosted the signing on Tuesday of historic agreements with Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to normalize diplomatic relations.

“We’re here this afternoon to change the course of history,” Mr. Trump said. “After decades of division and conflict, we mark the dawn of a new Middle East.”

Trump Trumpets Signing of Historic ‘Abraham Accord’ with Israel and Two Arab States

While many prophetic issues we discuss these days can often be seen as minor in setting the stage for fulfillment of Bible prophecy, the incredible Trump peace deal this week is anything but minor.

Israel and the peace process can never be seen as a subject that’s on the outer edges of Bible prophecy. And what we’re seeing these past weeks with President Trump and the ‘Abraham Accord’ must be considered as profound a sign as any we’ve seen on God’s prophetic timeline!

With all else that’s going on in this nation, we see the president making history in an astonishing leap of setting the stage for end time events. And who can deny that this president moves the needle on history’s tachometer of accelerating end time events?

Never has President Trump been as instrumental in moving the needle as this past week or so. It’s as if the engine of biblical eschatology has been revved to near max.

John MacArthur’s Church Defies Judges Order and Remains Open

John MacArthur’s Church Defies Judges Order and Remains Open

John MacArthur’s Church Defies Judge, Says Outdoor Restrictions Would ‘Shut the Church Down.’

This is shaping up to be quite a battle and every believer in America needs to pray for Pastor John MacArthur and the wonderful people of Grace Community Church as they spearhead the fight for the First Amendment for all churches in America.

The devil would love to shut down every church in America and as this church goes, so will your church.

Satan Using COVID

To Close The Church in America

Satan continues to prompt the state to weaponize COVID to harass believers and to shut down the church.

Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, California on Sunday defied a judge’s order not to meet indoors during the pandemic, with pastor John MacArthur telling attendees that the state’s restrictions for legal outdoor services would make it “impossible” to follow and result in the congregation shutting down.

The church met indoors multiple times Sunday, three days after California state Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff issued an injunction against such services and upheld Los Angeles County’s health restrictions on large gatherings.

Beckloff said the county’s order allows worship to occur outdoors, although MacArthur – during Sunday’s 10:30 a.m. service – said the various restrictions on outdoor worship are impractical.

The California Department of Public Health released a 14-page document July 29 outlining requirements and recommendations for churches to legally meet. Los Angeles County issued its own requirements and recommendations in July that churches in the county must follow.

Please pray for Pastor John MacArthur and Grace Community Church as they spearhead this battle for all churches in America.

Trump announces Bahrain strikes peace deal with Israel along with the UAE. Both will sign ‘Abraham Accord’ at White House Tuesday

Trump announces Bahrain strikes peace deal with Israel along with the UAE. Both will sign ‘Abraham Accord’ at White House Tuesday

Trump’s ‘Abraham Accord’ peace plan is shaking the Middle East like an earthquake and has become the biggest prophecy development of the 21st Century!

In another major, Middle East turn of events, President Trump has announced a second Arab Kingdom wants peace with Israel.

The Gulf Kingdom of Bahrain, strikes a peace deal with Israel and will be joining with the UAE to sign the ‘Abraham Accord’ Peace Treaty this Tuesday. This makes two Arab nations to make peace with Israel in 30 days.

Don’t miss our special teaching about the prophetic significance of this and how it is setting the stage for the rise of Antichrist.

‘Abraham Accord’

Bahrain Joins UAE

Historic Peace Agreement

With Israel

The second peace deal with Israel and an Arab nation constitutes another blow to the Palestinian leader and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who had condemned the UAE-Israel deal as despicable and a betrayal, and sought in vain to have the Arab League condemn it last week.

Trump said a short while after the statement was released: “I can see a lot of good things happening with respect to the Palestinians,” and he predicted that “the Palestinians are going to end up doing something that’s gonna be very smart for them, and all their friends are coming into this and they want to come into it very badly.”

He added that “people want to see the Middle East conflict brought to an end, and brought to an end quickly… We’re doing this the opposite way of previous administrations. They were doing it with nothing but fighting and blood. The sand was loaded up with blood, and now you’re going to see that a lot of that sand is loaded up with peace.”

‘Abraham Peace Accord’ Signing at the White House This Tuesday September 15

‘Abraham Peace Accord’ Signing at the White House This Tuesday September 15

Trump’s ‘Abraham Accord’ is shaking the Middle East like an earthquake and has become the biggest prophecy development of the 21st Century!

Now it has helped President Trump to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize!

The signing of the ‘Accord’ is scheduled for this Tuesday, September 15 at the White House.

What it is and why it’s so important to Bible prophecy will be discussed at our upcoming class September 22. It’s a game-changer that prophecy watchers can be excited about.

‘Abraham Accord’

UAE-Israel deal-signing ceremony to be held Sept. 15 in Washington!

The ‘Abraham Accord’ peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the most exciting prophetic developments in Bible Prophecy this century!

I’ll explain why, and break it down during the second half of our upcoming class. It’s a game changer with dramatic implications and having the effect of a political earthquake across the Middle East in fulfillment of Daniel 11.

Announced on August 13, the Accord is the first such treaty between an Arab country and Israel since the 1994 peace agreement with Jordan.

It was only a few weeks ago on August 13th that President Trump and Jared Kushner held their stunning press event to announce the Abraham Accord Peace Agreement between Israel and the UAE.

Things happen quick in the end times and often unexpectedly! Of course, the real ‘price’ of the ‘Abraham Accord’ for Israel is suspending their oft-stated desire to annex 30% of Judea and Samaria, the so-called ‘West Bank.’ That’s a big one, to say the least.

Isaiah prophesies about the mistake Israel will make in the last-days by making agreements with their neighbors instead of trusting the Lord,

“Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves.”

Isaiah 28:14,15

This is not the Daniel 9:27 final covenant between Israel and Antichrist.

But it is a major step toward it and an important prophetic development serving to fulfill Daniel 11 by splitting the Middle East Arab nations into two distinct groups. You can think of the ‘Abraham Accord’ as the first plank of the platform on which the final covenant between Israel and Antichrist will be built.

This means more nations will start choosing sides and the political alignments around Israel will rapidly change as we move closer and closer to the coming of the Lord who is ‘even at the doors.’

Will Life Ever Return To Normal Again? Is a Do-Over Even Possible?

Will Life Ever Return To Normal Again? Is a Do-Over Even Possible?

Will life ever return to the way things were before COVID-19 disrupted our lives?

That’s a good question!

And the Bible provides insight to help us find a reasonable answer!

Return To Normal?

A question I hear being asked a lot is: “Do you think we will ever return to normal life?”

It’s an interesting question, and I must admit that, for a while, it was one I, myself, thought about as I looked across the prophetic horizon.

Around the country we’re seeing a sense of foreboding that nags at many, even among devoted believers.

Will we ever see a time like we enjoyed before Coronavirus like maybe around Thanksgiving 2019? —Before quarantining and social distancing? Before churches were told not to meet at full capacity? Before wearing masks that in a sinister way obscure smiles and expressions of hope we previously were allowed to see on the countenances of our friends and fellow human beings? Will we ever again return to a time like before, when we received no glares of fear and even anger from eyes peering at us from behind the masks if we choose not to wear them?

The question is legitimate. Fear of this microscopic entity has many Americans concerned even though recent statistics from the CDC show the harmful effects of the disease have been grossly overblown. Of the 180,000 people reported to have died of COVID-19, only some nine thousand-plus have actually died of COVID itself. The majority died from age-related and or other health complications.

Why is this so under-reported by the mainstream media? I’ve written many times about the reasons for such muddling of truth. The deception involved in COVID-19, the sequestering of individual Americans one from another (the masking of America—and the world, for that matter) is all part of the answer to the question: “Will we ever return to normal life?”

While the coronavirus is real, it hasn’t proven to be world-endangering like Fauci and Birx originally claimed. In fact, the regular flu in its various strains has been much more deadly than this Wuhan virus. COVID-19 has been contrived for specific purposes in what I believe the Pre-Tribulation Rapture view presents.

However, while COVID-19 hasn’t been nearly as world-endangering as propagandized, it certainly has been the most world-changing pandemic in history.

That’s saying a mouthful. The Spanish Flu of 1917 killed millions. Many plagues of the past have devastated entire continents. But COVID-19, as a minor virus, has been the catalyst for bringing all the elements together needed to wind-up of the church age.

I and others who hold a Pre-Tribulation Rapture view believe this ‘pandemic’ is setting the stage for the post-Rapture events of the Tribulation. In this, the COVID-19 ruse has been immensely successful.

Will we ever return to normal life?

Converging developments answer with a resounding “no.”

The stage is setting for the release of the demonic powers and principalities of Ephesians 6:12 to bring their satanic empire and Antichrist to disrupt the world of God-rejecting sinners.

People worldwide have fallen for the fear-engendering pandemic of pandemics. No matter the political outcomes in November or any other election at any other time, we can’t expect a “do-over.” The nation and the world will not be made better through the human political process. No human government will make things as they have been, in the sense the founding fathers of America intended.

We are too deep into the end of this decaying, darkening age.

This being the case—that things will not get back to “normal”—how should we deal with everything evil permeating today’s society and culture?

What is to be our part, since we’ve been providentially placed here at this late moment in the Age of Grace?

We are to fight to delay the encroaching darkness! We’re here to be salt and light in this corruptive, decaying time in human history. The Restrainer—the Holy Spirit—indwells each believer. Each of us is supernaturally equipped to restrain evil and fight as described in Ephesians 6. And as long as we are still here, we should be standing up and speaking out.

The purpose of the church in these last days is to restrain evil and resist the devil (2 Thess. 2:6-7). That’s a tall order because wickedness in high places will only increase, the nearer to the Tribulation the world gets.

Nevertheless, the purpose for restraining the evil is so that the gospel can be offered to as many as possible. Pray for the lost, witness to them while there’s still time and pray for America as prescribed in 2 Chronicles 7:14. Stand up for righteousness at all cost. Make God’s Word, the Bible, your sword that He’s given you to battle evil.

We can’t expect a “do-over” of the way things were before this battle ramped up. But we must be at the heart of the delaying action God has planned for this time when His Son is at the very brink of stepping out on the clouds of glory and shouting: “Come up here!” (Revelation 4:1).
