The Tragic Murders of Alison and Adam . . .

journalistI first want to send my condolences to the families and loved ones of journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward. Our prayers are with you during this very tragic time in your lives.  

We live in a world that is fallen and broken and filled with way to many tragedies like this. This is a world where sowing and reaping has consequences, where brokenness, hurt and sin results in more brokenness, hurt and pain. Many people are giving prophecies that events like this are pointing toward the doom of America and the judgement that is here or that is coming.

We are living during a time the Bible calls, “The last days.”

“You should also know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times” (2 Timothy 3:1, NLT).  Yes, we are experiencing these “difficult times” but the Bible does not stop there. Throughout history, difficult times have often led to times of healing and spiritual renewal.

The senseless killing of Allison and Adam and many other similar tragedies has shocked and saddened our nation.  Let’s look again to God for his help, joining together in prayer for his grace and mercy upon each of us and looking in faith for a new spiritual awaken.

There is HOPE – in the promises of God through Jesus Christ.

On the Cross of Calvary Jesus carried all the Judgement of God for our sins. I am believing for spiritual awakening  in America and the world. I declare that a harvest of souls is coming out of the tragedies we see happening. When I read the Bible I see that Satan, evil and wickedness does not win. God, through Jesus Christ is redeeming this broken and fallen world.

I know a dear woman in our church, she is in her late 70’s, and years ago her son was murdered in front of her home. She testifies today that she found her own peace only through forgiveness. She went to the prison and forgave the young man who murdered her son. Today she is a beautiful and loving person because she did not allow bitterness to destroy her future.

Whatever you are going through today, I pray that you can experience the true peace of God that she did and move on with your life through forgiveness. God will help you and the good thing is you  just ask him.

My prayer,

“Father in heaven, I pray for the one who is reading this and is hurting from some tragedy or pain in their life. I pray that they can experience your peace and that you will empower them to forgive those who have hurt them allowing them to move on from this point in their life, in Jesus Name I pray, Amen”

Love and Pray for your enemies . . .

“I tell you this: love your enemies. Pray for those who torment you and persecute you—” (Matthew 5:44 Voice)

Jesus corwn thorwns pray for


Read what He said in Matthew 5 from the Message Bible Translation: 

 “You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. This is what God does. He gives his best—the sun to warm and the rain to nourish—to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty. If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that.” (Matthew 5:43-47 Message)

Have you checked your Prayer List lately? 

It might be good to take a few minutes and go over your prayer list to see how many people who have hurt you, spoken evil about you, betrayed you or “given you a hard time”  . . . are on your prayer list. 

After hours of horrible torture while dying on the Cross our Savior Jesus Christ said, “Father forgive them.” (Luke 23:34) 

If we have difficulty loving and praying for those who give us a hard time, how could we love and pray for tormenters like those Jesus forgive on the cross?

Christians are being persecuted and killed today like never before, what can we do? We can pray! We can pray for the terrorist and the persecutors. Remember that Saul of Tarsus was a terrorist, “Saul was going everywhere to devastate the church. He went from house to house, dragging out both men and women to throw them into prison.” (Acts 8:3, NLT)

Jesus appeared to Saul of Tarsus and saved him and transformed him into Paul the Apostle (Acts 9). Maybe the church was praying for Saul? We know that Stephen did. “And he (Stephen) fell to his knees, shouting, “Lord, don’t charge them with this sin! And with that, he died.” (Acts 7:60, NLT)  Saul was the one encouraging the people to kill Stephen. 

How do we pray for Terrorist and Persecutors? 

1. Pray for their salvation.

Here is a prayer that I pray, perhaps you can join me in praying like this: 

I pray for terrorist and Christian persecutors to be saved. I pray that You will send workers, preachers, angels and your servants to them, to show them the love of God. I pray that every Christian whom they kill will show them the love of God like Stephen did to Saul of Tarsus. I pray that the blood of the martyrs will cry out the love of God to their persecutors. I pray that terrorist will repent and be delivered. 

I bind the prince of the evil powers over the Middle East nations. I declare that Jesus Christ is the Lord over the Middle East. Jesus Christ is the Savior of those who live in the Middle East.

The gospel was first preached in the Middle East. Those Gospel seeds that were planted by the lives and blood of the first generations of Christians, like Paul and the Disciples, shall come to life and bring forth a harvest in this generation and in this time. I pray that kings of the Middle East will fall to their knees in repentance just as Saul of Tarsus did. I pray that terrorist will repent and be saved. I pray that the world will see that Jesus Christ is the only answer for this human race. No human leader has the answer, they will all be humbled before God’s Christ Jesus who will lead with love and save the world. 

2. Pray that God reveals Himself to them through dreams and visions.

3. Pray against the Spiritual Wickedness that is driving the terrorism. (Ephesians 6:12)

Will America Pray Again? 

I pray that God gives American voices that call us to prayer. That God gives the United States  a President in the next elections who will call America to prayer and repentance like Abraham Lincoln did during the crisis of the Civil War:  

abraham-lincoln“Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting, and prayer.

All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and restoration of our now divided and suffering country, to its former happy condition of unity and peace.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington this thirtieth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty-seventh.

—Abraham Lincoln

“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 4:2)

At Midnight a Cry was heard . . .

“Blow the trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; For the day of the LORD is coming, For it is at hand:” Joel 2:1
Ostrick head in sand

At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. “Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they said. ‘Open the door for us!’ “But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’  “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.” (Matthew 25:1-13, NIV)

1. The 10 virgins represent the church.

Jesus did not say five virgins and five prostitutes. All ten were virgins. All ten were clean so I believe they represent the Blood washed church.

2. The timing in the story.

Read Matthew 24 to understand the time Jesus was talking to the disciples about. He was talking about the end of time and His return.

3. All 10 of the Church is in a Deep Sleep at that time.

Would this represent the church today? In the story they were all asleep. Maybe we need to see that we are all in this together – asleep.

4. A Midnight Awakening Cry was heard.

I believe a Midnight Cry is going though the earth today. It is getting louder and louder as the days go by. This cry will intensify until the church awakens.

Midnight is a time when we are in deep sleep and do not expect the awakening.

5. There were Wise and Foolish.

During every outpouring of God’s Spirit, or God’s Awakenings, there are those who are foolish, not looking, not seeking, nor are they prepared. There are also those who are seeking God and have “oil in their lamps.”

“As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, ‘If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace–but now it is hidden from your eyes.’” (Luke 19:41, 42, NIV)

Jesus expects us to understand the Scriptures and seasons of God.

6. The Lamp and the Oil

Each one is responsible to have oil in their lamp.  Jesus said to “watch and to pray.” His command to the church is “be ready” at all times because we do not know the hour our Lord will return.

Do you feel a stirring  in your spirit?
Do you have a hunger to pray and seek the Lord?
Are you drawn to the Word of God in a new way?
God is wanting to fill our lamps with oil today so we are ready for this great Celebration.

7. The Celebration 

This awakening is a time of great harvest just before the Bridegroom comes to take His bride.  A great awakening.

“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” (Joel 3:14, NKJV)

Here is a word of prophecy I received:
“A cloud, a mighty and dark cloud of wickedness is forming over the earth. The winds are blowing this cloud and it is moving fast across the land. Like a hurricane it is moving and it is drawing those of wicked intent together,  The world is watching and saying this wickedness will not come to us. This storm will pass over us.  But, no political force can stop this because the power behind this storm is “spiritual wickedness.” The ancient powers of darkness who motived the kings of Babylon to destroy Israel and the Temple are aroused again in this last days
. Only the power of God can stop this storm.”

“Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.” (Hosea 10:12, NKJV)

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9, NKJV)

An Historic Wake-up Call . . .

A Historic Moment in History, Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the Congress of the
United States. 

Israel Nat Nau

Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei spews the oldest hatred, the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology. He tweets that Israel must be annihilated — he tweets. You know, in Iran, there isn’t exactly free Internet. But he tweets in English that Israel must be destroyed.”

What will it take for America to WAKE UP? For the church to WAKE UP? 

Speaking about the End of the Age, Jesus Christ said, “At midnight a cry was heard.” (Matthew 25)   A cry was heard in the great halls of Congress and around the world.

A “wake up” call.

“In this deadly game of thrones, there’s no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews or Muslims who don’t share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone. So when it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.”

While this historic speech and wake-up call was spoken in Congress some of our leaders boycotted the speech and our President said, “I did not listen to the speech . . .” While our nation negotiates with Iran many of our leaders and our President snubbed our main allay from the Middle East, Israel’s Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu. 

Whatever the attitude of our leaders or our nation is toward Israel,  the Church of Jesus Christ needs to wake-up and stand with and support Israel during this threatening time.

Psalms 122:6 says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” God made a covenant with Abraham and said, “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you.” (Genesis 12:3) 

The Prime Minister made if very clear that the goal of Iran and the Islamist is world domination. In the book, Jesus, Jihad and Peace, Michael Youssef writes,  “Ever since Islam began, its goal has been the founding of a world empire.” He goes on to write, An extreme sect of Islam has declared war on Western civilization, on the United States of America, and on Christians and Jews. While the War on Terror is not a religious war— that is, it’s not a war of one religion versus another— it’s clear that militant, extremist Islam has declared war on us. To pretend otherwise is to be in denial.”

What can we do?

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.” (Romans 13:11, 12, NKJV)

We can do what Daniel did when he recognized the time for the fulfillment of Israel’s exile into Babylon – He Prayed. At the end of three weeks of fasting and prayer an angel appeared to him and said that the answer to his prayers were sent the first day but the the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me.” (Daniel 10:13) This story teaches us about the Spiritual Warfare that goes on over nations.

Paul said, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12) 

We can do Warfare in Prayer.

If the church will head this wake-up call and join together in prayer, we can make a difference. 

Pray for Peace in Jerusalem. 
Pray for Muslims to be saved.
Pray for the Persecuted Christians. 

Pray for the End Time Outpouring of God’s Spirit. 

The End Time Promise. 

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.” (Acts 2:17)

“My friends, may Israel and America always stand together, strong and resolute. May we neither fear nor dread the challenges ahead. May we face the future with confidence, strength and hope.” Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu

Mr. Prime Minister we stand with you and with Israel.

Azusa Street Prayer Continues . . .


az prayer blog header

Hundreds of People Gather to Pray at Azusa Street in Los Angeles. 

The response has been fantastic as hundreds of people have joined together at the Union Church in Downtown Los Angeles.  There is definitely a stirring of God’s Spirit going on in Los Angeles and throughout America.

Prayer is the Answer.

Revival is always preceded by prayer. What better place to gather and pray than the Azusa Street Location where God poured out His Spirit in the past.

Los Angeles has been the center of many great moves of God’s Spirit. This is the entertainment Capital of the world. Just recently we had the Academy Awards and the world watch what was going on in Los Angeles and Hollywood.

Keep your eye on Los Angeles, especially DTLA (Downtown Los Angeles) because there is a move of God about to breakout.

If you are in the Los Angeles area come and join in the, Azusa Street Prayer Meetings.

An Urgent Call to Prayer . . .

If my people . .. will humble themselves and pray and seek my face  . .  .I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land”
(2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV).

Our nation and our cities are faced with staggering challenges today

  • The extended war against terrorism,
  • The threat of Ebola seems to be expanding despite of the CDC’s precautions,
  • ISIS and the current war America is involved in again,
  • The homeless and family crisis,
  • Need I say more to challenge us to pray?

Jesus said, “Listen, hypocrites! You can predict the weather by paying attention to the sky and the earth, but why can’t you interpret the urgency of this present moment?” (Luke 12:56 Voice)

There are two places on earth where church history records an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that it had impact on the entire world. 

One was the day of Pentecost in the upper room at Jerusalem.

The other was in 1906 at Azusa Street in Los Angeles. 

I want to ask you to come, bring your church to Azusa Street in Los Angeles to pray. 

Sunday Night, November 16th at 6pm
Union Church Auditorium
401 East 3rd Street
Los Angeles 90013

This church is adjoining to the Azusa Street mission location. 


I have been praying for over 2 years for a location in Los Angeles to bring people together to pray. I believe this is God’s timing and location for a Prayer Impact to take place.  I challenge you to come and encourage your folks to come. There is plenty of street parking and a free parking lot.

I believe that we are about to move into a season in America like we have never experienced. I don’t know all that is going to happen, but I do believe it all has to do with a GREAT AWAKENING. We as a Fellowship of Churches and Ministers must come together to pray. God will honor us with an outpouring of His Spirit. We believe, “It will come to pass in the last days that God will pour out His Spirit upon all people.”  Why not now?

The Bible Speaks Today

lnblog masked man

Revelation 20:4, NKJV, “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”

100,000 Christians are being persecuted for their family today. What does that mean to YOU today?
Are we living in the Last Days?
Could Christian Persecution come to where you are living?

Prophecy students have always known that Antichrist will use beheading as the punishment for those who will not worship him and receive the “Mark of the Beast”

Christian’s Flee to Kurdistan

Fleeing-ChristiansChristians flee Iraq’s Mosul after Islamists tell them: convert, pay or die. Iraqi Christians leave city en masse after Islamist militants threatened to kill them unless they converted to Islam or paid a ‘protection tax’

Christians were fleeing Iraq’s jihadist-held city of Mosul en masse on Friday after mosques relayed an ultimatum giving them a few hours to leave, the country’s Chaldean patriarch and witnesses said.

Iraq is home to one of the world’s most ancient Christian communities, but their numbers have plummeted as attacks against them mounted after the US-led invasion in 2003, which unleashed a wave of sectarian violence.

“Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Arbil,” in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan, Patriarch Louis Sako told AFP. “For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians.”

Here is a letter from our Praise Chapel Pastor in Kurdistan. 

Brother …

I need to share this with you about the church and I need you to share this with We really need a building for the church. The building will brings people from every kind of people.

The people is different than in America 100%. Here they need to see a building.

So please brother,  we want to focus on this. The Christians and the Muslims are starting to seek for real God.

What happened in Mosul, open the eyes of the people to see the reality of the Islam.

And the Church of the Catholic Church is very scared because they don’t have anything spiritual to give. So if we want to see the Praise Chapel Church in Kurdistan established we need now to work on it, especially we need a building.  I know it is very difficult to share about money.  But the time now for a building.

Pastor Kurdistan of Iraq

This is a horrible time for Christians in Iraq, but this posses an unbelievable opportunity in Kurdistan for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These (religious) Christians need help and they need a place to worship. This is the opportunity to help them.
