Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:
Back in late 2019, when I wrote God, Trump and the 2020 Election, I included a chapter called "Why Trump Might Lose." My research revealed that the No. 1 reason such an unexpected loss might take place was fraud. We are now seeing that play out in the headlines every day since Nov. 5.
Because of the massive election fraud that has been verified in numerous states as well as a news tip I received, I invited Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne of The River Church in Tampa, Florida, to a recent episode of the Strang Report podcast to discuss this tumultuous election and its impact on the future of our country. Howard-Browne is not only the first pastor to be arrested in our nation for the crime of holding a worship service, but he is also a student of politics and a passionate defender of truth. And he says unequivocally that the fraud surrounding this election must be uncovered and stopped before it's too late.
"This is greater than Trump," Howard-Browne, who grew up in South Africa and thus appreciates the value of freedom more than many people, says. "This is about America. It really is. What people don't understand (is that) they think because we are behind Trump that we just ignore everything. And I said to somebody, 'You don't understand. After Trump, there's somebody else. After that, there's somebody else—just in the next 10 years.'"
This past weekend, Howard-Browne received information from a Washington insider who revealed what a Supreme Court clerk had told him: The Supreme Court erupted into chaos Friday as the justices considered whether to hear the lawsuit Texas brought challenging presidential election results in four key swing states.

As Lou Engle led an international group of intercessors, including leaders of several First Nations tribes, the pain and sorrow of the Trail of Tears were turned into triumph through spiritual warfare. Engle partnered with Dean Briggs, of IHOP Kansas City, and Chief Joseph and Dr. Laralyn RiverWind, founders of FireKeepers International, in leading people through a time of powerful prayers, proclamations and repentance.
During the event, online and in-person, Briggs shared several dreams involving the election and President Trump whose legacy, he believes, is life. In a few years, Briggs believes, a case will come before the U.S. Supreme Court that will overturn the Roe v. Wade decision, which paved the way for legalized abortion.
Engle agreed, telling intercessors a story from 2003, when he was in Canada reading about William Wilberforce, the English parliamentarian who ended slave trade in Great Britain.
"As I was reading it weeping, flying home, the Lord spoke to me about a young man, my spiritual son who, at the time, I didn't know his name was Red Cloud. He had a dream in which he saw war in the heavens. He concluded it was God's fight against abortion.
Of the four Gospels, Luke gives the most detailed account of the nativity and mentions Mary 12 times, more than any other biblical writer. In addition to the birth of Christ, he also gives special, detailed attention to the birth of John the Baptist and many see his interest to be a result of his training as a physician.
At the beginning of his gospel, Luke, whom Paul calls "the beloved physician" in Colossians 4:14, indicates that he has made a thorough investigation of the things about which he is writing, including the virgin birth. This investigation included his utilization of eyewitness accounts of the events described. He writes: "Whereas many have undertaken to write a narrative of those things which are most surely believed among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word, it seemed good to me also, having accurately investigated all things from the very beginning, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent Theophilus, that you might know the certainty of the things which you have been told" (Luke 1:1-4).
Luke spent extended periods of time with Paul in Jerusalem and Judea and would have had opportunity to interview those closest to the events described, including Mary herself. There is no reliable information on how long Mary lived, but some traditions say she lived as much as 24 years or longer after the resurrection.
The detail Luke presents about the virgin birth does indicate that he has derived his information from a primary source, either Mary herself or someone to whom Mary had relayed the intimate details of the event.
