Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:
Pastor Andrew Brunson, who was detained for this faith in Turkey for two years on trumped-up terrorism and spying charges before being released in October 2018, told CBN News recently that persecution and harassment toward Christ followers in America is about to intensify iand that Christians should prepare.
"Jesus said this would happen," Brunson says. "Just as the world hated him, it will hate His followers. As I look at our history in the States, over generations, people were faithful. We've had many sins and mistakes as a country, but there are many who honored God, especially leaders who did this publicly.
"I think everyone can see that there has been a significant change in this area," he says. "Many leaders in our society now—the corporate world, entertainment, media, politics and academia—do not honor God and, in fact, they openly defy Him. They are increasingly hostile to those who identify clearly with Jesus and His teaching. So I believe it has actually already started. We already see the signs here. There is a tidal wave on the horizon, and it's coming toward us very quickly. It's not some far-off threat."
Brunson says there are many ways that this persecution and harassment of believers will manifest itself in America.
"One is in marginalizing, shaming and canceling people," Brunson says. "A big issue for us in the future is how we're going to be able to get our message out to Christians and nonbelievers. What if you're banned from social media, or no one will host your church website or podcast?
In spite of the nothing-to-see-here attitude of the media, the vote of the Electoral College is formally in dispute, according to part of the legal team for President Donald J. Trump.
In fact, in key battleground states, including Michigan, Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia and New Mexico, alternate electors have been chosen to replace those unlawfully chosen by their state legislatures during the Electoral College election.
The Arizona Senate has ordered seizure, inspection and audit of all ballot counting machines in Maricopa County following evidence of massive cheating using the machines.
Brian Thrasher, campaign surrogate, explains it, saying that with the removal of Attorney General William Barr and the replacement in both the Justice Department and military, he can see the president entering the real war period of this battle. It seems this was the plan all along—to get Joe Biden in office and then turn on him so he can be removed and they can anoint their preferred candidate. Joe Biden is on his way to jail.
Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said if we do not stand up now, it will end up that those who cheat the best will be elected, and he will be voting against the electors on Jan. 6.
Rabbi Curt Landry says with all the spiritual warfare surrounding the 2020 presidential election, including alleged fraud, the Constitution of the United States is being assaulted. In fact, it's being attacked as never before in the 244 years of the country's existence.
And, he says, that has huge ramifications on the religious freedom you and your fellow Americans have enjoyed for nearly 2 1/2 centuries. That religious freedom is in jeopardy, and many aren't even fully aware of it. Invoking Patrick Henry's famous quote from 1775, Landry says, "Give me liberty or give me death."
It's time, Landry says, for believers to get on their knees in constant intercessory prayer for God to intervene and help us maintain our religious liberty—to be "watchmen on the wall." The next step in the 2020 presidential election, which is still in dispute, will happen on Jan. 6, 2021, when Congress meets to validate it. If there are objections at that meeting, a somewhat obscure law will be consulted to settle disputes about electors.
"If we want God to bless America, then we need to have a democratic republic that actually stands with His ways," Landry told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. "The separatists that came here 400 years ago, that's what they came for. We cannot allow outside forces to steal that liberty."
