Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com this week:
To Christians Who Voted for Biden: Did You Not See This Coming?
For the last four years, those of us who voted for Donald Trump and who identify as committed followers of Jesus have been asked incessantly, "How could you vote for him? If you truly believe in what is written in Scripture, how could you vote for a man like Trump?"
Now, the tables are turned, and that same question must be asked of those who identify as committed followers of Jesus and who voted for Joe Biden. How could you do it? Did you not see the radical, destructive, anti-Christian policy decisions he would make?
As for the justification of our vote for Trump, our argument has been simple: We agreed that Trump's character and personality could be negative and destructive. But we hoped that the good policy decisions he would make, decisions of massive life-or-death death proportions, would outweigh his character flaws.
And so, when it came to fighting against the slaughter of the unborn, numbering more than 60 million to date in America since 1973, Trump was our clear choice over Hillary Clinton or Biden. Jesus cares about "the least of these," which most certainly includes the defenseless babies in the womb.
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda Announces New Church for Florida
From the nations of the world to the neighborhoods of Central Florida, evangelist Daniel Kolenda of Christ for All Nations announced Jan. 29, 2021, the start of a new church in Orlando, Florida. Set to launch in August 2021, We Are Nations Church is inviting interested believers, including those relocating to the area, to join the launch team and "be part of something historic." The church will be a separate entity from CfAN.
"What if the same harvest we have seen around the nations of the world would happen here in Central Florida? What if hundreds of thousands of believers joined forces to preach the Gospel and proclaim the Good News? What would Orlando look like? What would America look like?"
A Message to Joe Biden: 'Mr. President, the Voice of God Calls Out to You to Follow Him—or Face Eternal Judgment'
Jonathan Cahn is known the world over for his latest bestselling narrative, The Harbinger II: The Return, as well as for his earlier books of powerful biblical prophecy—all of which have appeared on the New York Times bestseller lists and appeared simultaneously on the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Bestsellers list, in addition to many other prominent bestseller lists. Millions of fans have embraced the messages of his books.
As the nation grapples not just with a crushing pandemic but with economic distress and vast political upheaval, Cahn—concerned for our union—delivered a message just last week in a video with over 1.4 million views to newly inaugurated President Joe Biden.
"We stand in a most critical moment," says Cahn. "Mr. President, you have called for unity and peace. But how can a nation have unity and peace when it has turned against the God who brought it into existence?"
Parents Shocked, Saddened by American Girl's 2021 'Girl of the Year' With Lesbian Storyline
Since 1986, the American Girl doll has risen to become a near-staple of American childhood. Originally produced by Pleasant Rowland and her Pleasant Company and now by toy manufacturing giant Mattel, the dolls portray 8 to 11-year-olds girls of various ethnicities, each accompanied by a set of books told from the viewpoint of the individual American Girl.
But in December 2020, American Girls made an announcement that seemed innocent enough: The company's 2021 "Girl of the Year" is a 10-year-old from Michigan named Kira Bailey who travels to Australia. But what the company didn't say in its press release or official tweet, both of which emphasized wildlife rescue, was that Kira's storyline includes a lesbian couple.
Jonathan Cahn's Explosive Message to Biden Victim of Suppression
Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of the blockbuster bestseller The Harbinger II: The Return, has issued a mind-blowing prophetic message for newly elected U.S. President Joe Biden. Cahn released his powerful, eye-opening message in a video on Jan. 25, 2021, just days after the inauguration.
But Cahn, like a growing number of conservative Christians, found himself a victim of the recent escalation of cancel culture that leaves those not aligned with the Left "canceled" on social media, their platforms broken and delegitimized.
Although his video reached more than 1 million viewers its first day of release, it appears that Google and YouTube both tried to suppress it. The main video was removed from all searches, even those on Cahn's own YouTube page. YouTube also added a line to the top of Cahn's page that reads as follows:
"U.S. elections. Joe Biden is the President of the United States. States certify results after ensuring ballots are properly counted and correcting irregularities and errors. Learn more" despite the fact that Cahn's video makes no mention of election fraud.
