“An executive order (EO) signed by President Donald J. Trump this morning could welcome more overt political activity by charities and churches. It also appears to open the door for more litigation against his administration. …The full EO was released this afternoon and what it actually does could be up for debate. The EO states that it will be the policy of the executive branch to “vigorously enforce federal law’s robust protections of religious freedom,” and will honor and enforce those protections. It goes on to state that the Treasury Secretary will ensure that the department does not take adverse action against any organization for “speaking about moral or political issues from a religious perspective, where speech of similar character has not ordinarily been treated as participation or intervention in a political campaign on behalf or opposition to a candidate for office.” –Source
As was revealed and then shared back in July of 2016 in a video I made, Trump will never remove the prophesied 501c3 even though many preachers and pastors hoped and declared otherwise. Prophecy must be fulfilled and to remove that government contract now will prevent it from fulfillment. What he will do (as we saw yesterday) is change how that contract is written, or as the headline of the article I link out at the start of this blog entry said, Trump’s “Executive Order Relaxes Johnson Amendment Enforcement.” Since prophecy cannot be changed by the wicked desires of mankind, that contract had to stay intact, but as I stated last year, it must be rewritten so as to allow the preachers to keep their tax free status as well as preach political sermons. The truth as it was revealed in the prophetic Scripture of our Lord is rock hard fact and no matter how many false shepherds and wolves proclaim otherwise, it will happen! Continue reading →
(RNS) The National Council of Churches and several other Christian organizations have released a statement expressing “grave concerns” with President-elect Donald Trump’s policies and picks to lead his Cabinet and other departments.
“We urge President-Elect Donald Trump, who has said he shares our Christian faith, to take seriously his responsibility to bring our nation together and to heed the oath he will take to preserve, protect and defend America,” read the statement, released Friday (Jan. 6).
“He can start this work before the oath of office is taken with his policy agenda and political appointments.” Continue reading →
New Spirit Revival Center church pastor Rev. Darrell Scott declared Wednesday that there is a “concentrated satanic attack” being waged against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who is believed by some evangelicals to be God’s choice for president.
Speaking at the Midwest Vision and Values Pastors Leadership Conference held at his church in Cleveland, Scott who is CEO of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump, revealed at the event that a “nationally known” preacher had warned Trump prior to the launch of his presidential campaign “that if you choose to run for president, there’s going to be a concentrated Satanic attack against you.”
“He said there’s going to be a demon, principalities and powers, that are going to war against you on a level that you’ve never seen before and I’m watching it every day,” Scott said. Continue reading →
Hillary Clinton campaign representatives and supporters have held two private meetings with top Catholic and evangelical leaders in Washington to discuss the global development policies of a potential Clinton administration.
Several of Clinton’s former State Department advisors organized the meetings via their foreign policy volunteer group, “Idealists for Hillary,” which is working to activate supporters in global development networks. Cindy Huang, a former advisor for State’s Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative, helped to convene the closed-door sessions, each for about a dozen religious leaders. Continue reading →
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump promised a group of pastors Thursday that he will unmuzzle and empower the “silenced” church and increase church attendance by repealing the Johnson Amendment if he is elected president in November.
The Johnson Amendment, which is a piece of legislation prepared by former President Lyndon Johnson and passed by Congress in 1954, is often described as prohibiting charitable organizations (including churches) from endorsing political candidates.
Trump took aim at the legislation while speaking at a two-day event which began Thursday at the Hyatt Regency on International Drive in Orlando, Florida, entitled “Rediscovering God in America Renewal Project.” Continue reading →
A megachurch pastor has two points he wants you to consider when you go into the voting booth in November to cast a ballot for who you believe should be the next president of the United States.
It’s what he believes Jesus would do.
Dave Ferguson, lead pastor of Community Christian Church in Naperville, Illinois, said if Jesus were an American, He would “choose with love” when deciding whom to support in the 2016 presidential election. It would be a choice that is a “clear reflection of His love for God, but also of His love for His neighbors.” Continue reading →
It’s been over a quarter-century since the fall of the Berlin Wall, but God has not returned to east Germany. Protestant churches, getting worried about the declining popularity of Christianity, have come up with a plan. Spiritual advising couldn’t bring people back, but maybe free Wi-Fi will.

“One of Canada’s most venerable religious charities has been told by the Canada Revenue Agency that it can no longer work for justice in the world. Agency officials conducting a political activities audit on the Canadian Unitarian Council said the broad statement in the council’s bylaws is too vague. “Vague purposes are ambiguous and can be interpreted in many different ways,” the agency said in a compliance letter, which includes other demands more than a year after the audit was launched. …Many charities targeted by CRA’s political activity audit program, begun in 2012 under the Stephen Harper government, had expected relief from the Liberals, who campaigned on a promise to set charities “free from political harassment.” …”I do wish that the government would stop these audits, like, right now,” said Ng. “It has cost me many, many, many hours of work. … It has also cost us a lot of money that we haven’t budgeted for.” …Of 38 completed audits so far, only one found no problems. Six charities have been given notice the agency intends to revoke their charitable status…” –Source
Just so you know, the charitable foundation or “Canadian Unitarian Council” is set up by the government in Canada in similar fashion to the United States 501c3 contract wherein all the disobedient pastors of the nation signed unto since 1954 which then became law in 2007 under the second Bush administration. (See the prophetic implications to their signing here) In Canada, and no doubt under DC inspiration and coercion, the CUC was formed in 1961.That’s just 7 years after Lyndon Johnson set it up in 1954 in the United States.

Evangelicals are an important voting block in most elections. However, in the 2016 Presidential race, their vote may be more critical than ever. So, they are being courted – especially by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
One thought up for debate after Trump’s meeting with evangelical leaders this week is whether or not Christians are out of focus when it comes to expecting spiritual leadership from whoever occupies the White House. Continue reading…
