Should we Pray for President Biden and his Administration? – How should Christians Respond?

 

 

 

 

 

 

What should Christians do about President Biden?

I hear that question often, though perhaps in a less respectful form. It’s more like, “What about Biden?” or “Did you hear what Biden has done lately?”

Most of my friends are Christians like me who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020. In conversations about politics I sometimes try to reframe, or perhaps enlarge the frame, of such conversations to include God’s plans for the church and the world and Christian responsibility within those plans.

What is that responsibility? What should Christians do about Biden? The biblical answer is that they should pray for him. The Bible commands all kinds of prayers for all kinds of rulers, good and bad.

Therefore, first of all I urge you that requests, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made on behalf of all people – for kings and all who are in authority – so we may live a peaceful and quiet life in all Godliness and respectfulness.

I Timothy 2:1-2

Living a peaceful and Godly life is a blessing from God. This blessing is most obtained within a peaceful political and civil context in which religious liberty thrives. Disorder leads to violence and oppression of all types, including religious persecution.

If all the Trump supporting, evangelical Christians collectively stop praying for President Biden we are shooting ourselves in the foot by further withdrawing God’s favor from our nation and the church.

The Apostle Paul says we should pray for our leaders, “so WE may live a peaceful and quiet life.” We should pray for President Biden, Vice President Harris and the Administration in order to ask the Lord to keep us safe and free and so that the government would make wise decisions that will benefit our families and church. And thankfully, in 2021, we can still pray for the Lord to keep us free and allow the preaching of the Gospel in our country until Jesus returns.

God is able to sovereignly engineer rulers and circumstances to fulfill His will, “For dominion belongs to the Lord and He rules over the nations” (Ps. 22:28).

Regardless of political party, the leaders of our nation should be prayed for that they might lead with a spirit of humility, respect for one another, a spirit of understanding and a determination to cooperate for America’s common good.

Removing prayer for the current administration is a mistake that could bring further erosion and hardship on your family and the church at large.

Remember the unpleasant circumstances Paul was living under when he taught this. The Apostle wrote this to Timothy while sitting in prison, about to be martyred, under one of the most ungodly Roman governments in history. Nero was causing havoc persecuting the church and burning Christians for the fun of it. He was a cruel and vicious blasphemer but Paul says pray for our leaders!

You may not like the policies and ungodly standards of a particular party in power but God says we should pray for our leaders so we may live in peace. I want to live in peace don’t you? Of course. So we can’t afford to stop praying for our leaders.

That is why our political and civil leaders should be, if not at the top of our prayer lists, at least on our prayer lists.

Climate Alarmists Don’t Have a Climate Problem – They Have a God Problem

Climate Alarmists Don’t Have a Climate Problem – They Have a God Problem

 

 

 

 

End-time man thinks he can save the planet. Really? Imagine the audacity of such a prideful campaign. Fallen men, under the curse of sin are leading a worldwide campaign to “Save the Planet,” and the whole world is listening. Man would be wise to start thinking about how he can save his soul instead of wasting time and resources on saving the planet.

What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
Math. 16:26

The Climate Problem
Climate Change Alarmists Don’t Have a Climate Problem – They Have a God Problem

In fact, they have an unsolvable problem in their campaign to rid the world of global warming. Their real problem is opposing God.

God makes clear to Job, He has control of the sun, the wind, sea levels, and precipitation.

He’s the one who “commands the morning” by causing the sun to rise (Job 38:12).

He knows “where the east wind is scattered upon the earth” (Job 38:24). 

He’s the one who “shuts in the sea with doors” (Job 38:8)“prescribes limits for it” (Job 38:10), and says to it, “Thus far you shall you come, and no farther” (Job 38:11).

He’s the one who enters the “storehouses of the snow” and “the storehouses of the hail” (Job 38:22)“brings rain on a land where no man is” (38:26), and “gives birth to the frost of heaven” (Job 38:29).

Environmentalists sooner or later must face the plain fact that there is nothing they can do to change the thermostat of our solar system.

Only God knows how to do that which he will frequently do during the coming Tribulation period. He will turn it up and singe men for their idolatry of worshipping themselves instead of God.

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.
Revelation 16:8-9

Climate change is one of the most popular and dangerous movements in the world today. Its rapid growth and acceptance is unparalleled. The Biden Climate plan is estimated to cost America $17 Trillion.

Like evolution before it, virtually every government, university and corporation have bought into the lie that the earth will not be able to sustain life much longer. Man is doomed!

When God Calls, Say YES!

When God Calls, Say YES!

 

 

 

 

 

The story of Gideon reminds us to walk by faith and remember that when God calls us to a task He also equips us with the gifts and spiritual capacity to accomplish the work. 

 

 

 

 

Judges 6:12a, 15

Then the angel of Adonai (the Lord) appeared to him (Gideon) and said to him, “Adonai is with you, O mighty man of valor…” Then he (Gideon) said to Him, “Me, my Lord? With what would I deliver Israel? Look, my family is the poorest in Manasseh and I am the least in my father’s house.”

It’s interesting to note the contrast between Gideon’s view of himself and God’s view of Gideon. Gideon sees himself as he is in his present circumstance, an insignificant and unaccomplished nobody with a limited future.

But God sees Gideon as a man of valor, able to win wars against overwhelming odds and becoming a champion by rescuing Israel in their hour of need (Hebrews 11:32) .

To achieve something great for God we must be willing and ready to act in faith and say “yes” when He calls despite feeling inadequate. We usually do not see ourselves beyond our present level of achievement but thankfully, God sees us complete in Christ and blessed beyond our natural ability.

Like Gideon, we must remember that when God calls, He is seeing us with unique talents and gifts He chose to create in us to accomplish whatever He asks us to do.

Here’s the Lesson of Gideon: When God calls…say yes, step out in faith, and believe that you are equipped with all you need to succeed.

Biden is Iran’s Survival Strategy –  Even After Iran Elects Mass Murderer Raisi, Biden Still Unfazed

Biden is Iran’s Survival Strategy – Even After Iran Elects Mass Murderer Raisi, Biden Still Unfazed

 

 

 

 

Iran just elected a mass murderer — so naturally Team Biden wants to negotiate.

Newly elected president and mass murderer of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi being congratulated for his sham victory by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

In picking a mass murderer as his potential successor, Iran’s supreme leader hopes to make the United States a willing partner in the repression of his country’s people.

Biden is Iran’s Survival Strategy
Edited from Caroline Glick

Editors Note: Please take 5 minutes to read this outstanding article on Biden’s strategy with Iran.

From one end of Iran to the other, citizens are suffering. The regime is failing the people at all levels. Water shortages are endemic. Power outages are a matter of course. The sick and impoverished, livestock and crops are dying from lack of water, oxygen and overheating. Petroleum workers are on strike due to starvation-level wages.

Wherever one turns in Iran, everything is broken.

The regime has two plans to avoid the wrath of the people—repression and sanctions relief. And the Biden administration is giving the Iranian regime every reason to believe that it can pull off both.

In the not-so-distant past, Iranian dictator Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s decision to elevate Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raisi to serve as Iran’s next president beginning next month would have been greeted with stunned revulsion.

Raisi is a sadistic mass murderer. He first rose to prominence in 1988, when he served as one of one four members of the “death commission” that was directly responsible for the execution of some 30,000 dissidents, including children.

The dissidents weren’t merely executed. Many of them were subjected to torture before they were murdered. Women and girls were singled out for particularly monstrous treatment: Raisi and his partners had their young female victims raped before execution to ensure all “enemies of the regime” would burn in hell.

Raisi’s role in the 1988 massacre wasn’t a one-off. As he rose through the ranks of Iran’s judiciary, he sentenced thousands of dissidents to death.

Raisi is the target of personal sanctions from the U.S. for his direct involvement in mass murder. Raisi also directs the Astan Quds Razavi foundation, which is itself subject to U.S. sanctions for its role in funneling funds to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Assad has directed the genocide of some half a million Syrians.

Raisi was just formally elected to Iran’s presidency. But his election was a sham. Khamenei and his lackeys decide who gets to run for president, and they also get to decide the results of the election. The Iranian public, well aware that their votes are meaningless, overwhelmingly boycotted the election.

Khamenei’s elevation of Raisi sent a message to the Iranian people: Any effort to oppose the regime—any demand to reform or overthrow the corrupt system—will be met with repression the likes of which they haven’t seen since Raisi the sadist killed 30,000 of their brothers and sisters three decades ago.

None of this has put a dent in the Biden administration’s outreach to Iran.

The administration has insisted that defending human rights is its credo. But as Raisi the butcher rises to power, rather than boycott Iran, the administration is making excuses for maintaining its policy of appeasement.

One excuse is that Raisi’s “election” in the midst of nuclear negotiations shows that even the hardest of “hard-liners” is willing to make a deal with the U.S. Another excuse Biden and his advisors are making is that Raisi’s rise isn’t a big deal because Khamenei makes all the decisions anyway.

A third excuse the Biden team makes is to shrug its shoulders. Raisi’s record of mass murder is not America’s concern. Reaching a deal with Iran that restores both Iranian and U.S. compliance with the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—better known as the Iran nuclear deal—is America’s concern. Relatedly, administration officials make a fourth excuse: Raisi’s election means the U.S. has until August 8, his inauguration date, to finalize a deal.

To maintain the conceit that its excuses represent anything other than an abdication of both American moral leadership and strategic rationality, the administration depends on the public to know nothing about the nuclear deal, about Iran’s nuclear aspirations, its nuclear operations or its view of the nuclear deal.

Far from a nuclear nonproliferation deal, the JCPOA guaranteed Iran’s entry into the club of nuclear armed states. The limitations the deal placed on Iran’s nuclear operations were temporary and will all expire in 2030. By then, as then-President Barack Obama explained in 2016, the nuclear activities Iran is permitted to undertake under the nuclear deal will reduce its breakout time to military nuclear capabilities to “zero.”

As for Iran’s aspirations, the JCPOA was based on one major strategic assumption: that Iran’s nuclear program was a civilian nuclear program, not a military nuclear program. Dubious from the outset, this assumption was exposed as a complete fallacy in the wake of Israel’s seizure of Iran’s nuclear archive in 2018. It was the revelations of the archive that convinced then-President Donald Trump to withdraw U.S. participation in the JCPOA and initiate a strategy of “maximum pressure” on the fanatical regime.

After negotiating the deal in bad faith, the Iranians immediately began breaching both the letter and the spirit of the deal. From the outset, Iran failed to comply with the deal’s limitations on its nuclear operations. It exceeded the limits on the production of heavy water required to operate plutonium-producing nuclear reactors, and it operated more advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges than was permitted. It attempted to covertly acquire nuclear and missile technology, including carbon fiber, in a manner prohibited by the deal. And it refused to provide United Nations (UN) nuclear inspectors with full access to its nuclear sites. These breaches were not incidental; they were deliberate, although U.S., UN and European officials went to outrageous lengths to downplay the breaches in a bid to avoid having to acknowledge that Iran was violating the deal.

Although Iran insisted that it remained committed to the JCPOA after the U.S. abandoned it, the regime embarked on massive nuclear operations in open breach of all the JCPOA’s restrictions.

In the face of all of these known facts about the scope of the nuclear deal, Iran’s nuclear operations and consistent breach of the deal itself, the Biden administration argues nonsensically that by restoring Iran to compliance with the 2015 deal, it will be able to put Iran’s nuclear program “in a box.” But Middle East scholars Michael Doran and Tony Badran argued convincingly recently that the real purpose of the U.S. nuclear diplomacy with Iran is to realign the U.S. alliance structure in the Middle East away from Israel and the Sunni Arab states and toward Iran.

From Iran’s perspective, the purpose of the deal is far more limited.

All that Iran seeks is an end to the U.S. sanctions. Raisi’s “election” is further proof that all talk of a fight between “moderates” and “hard-liners” in the Iranian regime is nonsense that Westerners tell themselves. Iran isn’t interested in moderating. It is interested in having the U.S. save it financially by ending its sanctions so that it can build its nuclear weapons, support its terror proxies and maintain their wars against the U.S., Israel and the Sunni Arabs, and still have money to repress the Iranian people.

Desperate to advance its “realignment” policy, the Biden administration is doing everything it can to satisfy the Iranians. Despite Biden’s assertion that no sanctions will be removed so long as the Iranians have not curtailed their nuclear activities to come back in compliance with the JCPOA, the administration has already begun removing sanctions. This week, Secretary of State Antony Blinken removed sanctions on three Iranians involved with Iran’s ballistic missile program. Indeed, the administration has expressed a willingness to remove sanctions imposed against Khamenei himself.

So too, The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the administration is developing a new sanctions policy that will “stem sweeping pressure campaigns, avoid collateral damage and act jointly with allies rather than unilaterally.” The new sanctions policy is set to be revealed by the end of the summer, and among its goals is “easing economy-wide sanctions against Iran.”

In other words, as Iran refuses to return to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, the Biden administration is looking for ways to remove sanctions anyway by using buzzwords like “multilateralism.”

Buoyed by the nuclear deal that gave Iran an open path to a nuclear arsenal, in 2015 Khamenei promised Israel would be eradicated by 2040. In 2017, regime supporters in Tehran held a mass rally where they unveiled a digital clock that counted down to Israel’s destruction.

The Iranian regime believes the Biden administration will ensure its survival by giving it a green light to repress its people and save its economy through sanctions relief. In light of the administration’s policies, there is little reason to doubt Iran’s assessment.

Knock Knock: Biden Threatens To Send Government Officials Door to Door to Convince People To Take The Covid Jab! Is This Still America?

Knock Knock: Biden Threatens To Send Government Officials Door to Door to Convince People To Take The Covid Jab! Is This Still America?

 

 

 

Biden Announces Door-to-Door Outreach to Boost Vaccinations!

Our government is planning to send officials out to knock on people’s doors across America to pressure them to take the coronavirus vaccine.

If they show up, be sure to share the Good News with them that Jesus saves sinners!

 

 

 

President Joe Biden said last week:

Now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and often times door by door – literally knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people,” Biden said during his speech about coronavirus.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki used a similar phrase in which she said coronavirus preventative measures will entail “targeted community by community, door to door outreach to get the remaining Americans vaccinated.”

Ronald Reagan nailed it when he aptly said that the most terrifying words in the English language are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Here in 2021, the announcement by Joe Biden brings that statement to chilling new heights.

Starting soon, the Biden administration will be sending out ‘government officials’ to the homes of unvaccinated Americans to pressure them into receiving the COVID-19 vaccine jab.

Now I thought America didn’t have a National Vaccine Database for COVID, or do they? They must because how else would they know who hasn’t had it yet? Don’t say we didn’t warn you when there comes a knock at your door. They’ll be from the government, and they’re here to help.

Breitbart News reported the spread of the highly transmissible Delta variant of the Chinese coronavirus is reportedly “forcing” the Biden administration to “rethink Covid-19 measures,” which could include re-instituting mask mandates — even among vaccinated people.

Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has dubbed the Delta variant of “concern.” The variant totals roughly 20 percent of infections in the United States and has prompted the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) to urge fully vaccinated individuals to wear face coverings.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on July 4 cautioned that individuals will begin to see “almost two types of America” between the vaccinated and unvaccinated as the Delta variant spreads across the nation. As the Biden administration is “rethinking” the coronavirus from China, a July poll indicates 57 percent of Americans believe they have less personal freedom today than before the coronavirus pandemic.

This is where we are today, just as we told you from the beginning. Satan will continue to use his successful fear campaign to thwart the plans of God and continue his last-days onslaught against God’s people and to do what he can to silence the church.

Turning Away From Israel

With Netanyahu removed as Prime Minister, and the new liberal government in place in Israel, Biden is getting more aggressive in his quest to turn against Israel and has ordered the process of removing America assets that defend Israel.  

The Biden administration is sharply reducing the number of U.S. THAAD antimissile systems in the Middle East in a major realignment of its military footprint there as it focuses the armed services on challenges from China and Russia, administration officials said.

Ring of Protection Removed

The administration is pulling 8 batteries of THAAD anti-missile systems from the Middle East that, just coincidentally, forms a ring around the nation of Israel, while at the same time attempting to rejoin Obama’s farcical Iran Nuclear Treaty that President Trump pulled America out of. What do you think is the agenda here?

“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”

Luke 21:20-22 

The Bible says Antichrist will come against the nation of Israel, so it’s no wonder that as we approach the Tribulation and Democrats are in power there is a constant pull away from defending Israel, and a rush towards making friends with their enemies. It is a familiar pattern we watched in the Obama years and now Biden is taking it to even a more dangerous level. 

Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion. But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor. Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.

Micah 4:11-13

U.S. Military to Withdraw Hundreds of Troops, Aircraft, Antimissile Batteries From Middle East

FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: The Pentagon is pulling approximately eight Patriot antimissile batteries from countries including Iraq, Kuwait, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, according to officials. Another antimissile system known as a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD system, is being withdrawn from Saudi Arabia, and jet fighter squadrons assigned to the region are being reduced, those officials said.

 

 

 

Promise Kept:
Biden said that as president he will reverse the Trump Administration policy and open talks with the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO Terror Group) and give them funding and support.

Biden also said that he would reopen the US Consulate in east Jerusalem ‘to help engage the Palestinians’ something that would also reverse the Trump administration policy.

 

 

 

 

When a nation devotes a month to display its PRIDE in what God calls shameful while His people give assent by their silence… that nation invites His judgment.
