Join us on our podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at

Are we any closer to the end of the world? The scientists behind the "doomsday clock" are set to make an announcement detailing just how close we are to destruction, according to the Associated Press.  
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists have been predicting the end of the world in terms of "minutes to midnight," based on world events like nuclear threats, political leadership and weapons treaties, since 1947. 
In 2015, the world was listed at "3 minutes to midnight," which is the closest the clock has been to the predicted end times in 30 years, according to Fusion 
"It is worth noting that while humans have not yet succumbed to any full-on, post-apocalyptic scenarios, plants and animals are not faring so well. Many scientists believe the planet has already entered its sixth mass extinction, and according to a recent report in Science, more than 75 percent of species of animals and plants could be gone within a few centuries," Fusion's Ari Phillips writes.  
"According to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the danger posed by climate change, the recent North Korean nuclear test, and tensions between the United States and Russia, which remain 'at levels reminiscent of the Cold War,' will be the main factors influencing the decision to adjust the Doomsday Clock or not," Phillips writes.  
The timeline and scientific tracking echoes what figures like televangelist Jim Bakker and authors like Michael Snyder and Paul McGuire have noted about current events.  
Bakker says he's had many dreams about the future of America.  
"Our people were being dominated by people from another land that spoke other languages. ... That's what the Lord showed me," Bakker says
In another dream, Bakker says he saw a city on fire.  
"The unique thing, it was belching out, part of the smoke was pitch black when tires burn rubber. ... I don't know what the black smoke was, but it was a horrible fire. Cars burning, oil tanks exploding. There was extreme black smoke, toxic, so bad that people were fleeing the city," Bakker described. 
The dire circumstances, however, could ignite a revival.  
"Ultimately, we must remember that—like the children of Israel, the early Christians and the Pilgrims and Puritans who founded America—money is spiritual and all economic prosperity comes from the Lord! We need to seriously pray, repent and cry out to God for a biblical revival and another Great Awakening," McGuire says. "We must remember that God is bigger than the international banking system, but we must stop looking to manmade institutions to save us and pray to God. The Bank of Heaven is not broke!"

They Called Him Rabbi Abraham Lincoln

They Called Him Rabbi Abraham Lincoln

Monday, February 23, 2015 |  David Lazarus  ISRAEL TODAY
We all know how much Abraham Lincoln did for African-Americans, but until now very little was known of the special place Honest Abe held in his heart for the Jews. In fact, Lincoln showed so much favor to the Jewish community of his time that they called him “Rabbi Abraham.”
When Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809 there were fewer than 3,000 Jews in the United States. By the time he died there were 150,000. Many of Lincoln’s contemporaries were alarmed by this development. Anti-Semitism, like the plague, had spread from Christian Europe to the New World, but Lincoln, a staunch Christian Republican, stood up for the Jews, much in the same way he would for African-Americans.
Lincoln was a devote student of the Bible and often quoted from the Old Testament in his public speeches. Lincoln rejected the notion held by many Christians of the time that the Jews were responsible for killing the Son of God. He made it a point to treat the Jews with respect right from the beginning of his career. Lincoln boasted many Jewish friends, often represented them in his law practice, and even appointed Jews to offices in his administration. Many Jews served as President Lincoln’s personal advisors.
A number of Lincoln’s generals regarded the Jews as hostile intruders to the North American continent and tried to have them expelled. General Ulysses Grant tried to force them out by issuing an edict barring Jews from selling goods to Union soldiers. Lincoln would have none of it, and confronting his commanding general immediately rescinded the shameful order.
When the Union Army wanted to “appoint Christian Chaplains to care for the spiritual needs of our brave soldiers,” Lincoln insisted on also appointing Jews to serve as chaplains to the army, something that had never been done before. Lincoln then signed the act into law and Jewish chaplains have been serving in the US Armed Forces ever since.
It was Lincoln who was the first to acknowledge the need to recognize Judaism as an official religion of the United States. At the time it was common to call the United States a “Christian Nation.” In order to make sure that the growing Jewish population also be included, Lincoln insisted that America be called “a nation under God.”
In 1863 Lincoln delivered his Emancipation Proclamation declaring that “all slaves under the Confederacy were from then on forever free.” Shortly afterwards, Lincoln met with a Canadian Christian Zionist named Henry Wentworth Monk who explained to him that Jews who were being oppressed in Russia and Turkey also need to be emancipated "by restoring them to their national home in Palestine."
Lincoln replied that this, the rebirth of Israel as a nation-state, was "a noble dream and one shared by many Americans."
When Lincoln was assassinated, the Jewish response was unprecedented as communities around the country mourned him in the traditional Jewish way for seven days by sitting “Shiva.” Eulogizes for the fallen president were offered by rabbis in every synagogue across the nation.
In what surely must have been a divine toss of the coin, the new copper penny minted in 1909 in celebration of Lincoln’s 100th birthday and adorned with his own iconic portrait was designed by the Russian-Jewish immigrant Victor David Brenner.
More of this fascinating story can be found in the new historical documentary “They Called Him Rabbi Abraham” by Gary Phillip Zola.

July 4th - Christian Quotes of the Founding Fathers

This is what they really said. And they didn't "separate" church and state. Steve Martin, Editor

Christian Quotes of the Founding Fathers - Quotes on Christianity, Faith, Jesus and the Bible

By Mary Fairchild, Guide

No one can deny that many of the founding fathers of the United States of America were men of deep religious convictions based in the Bible and their Christian faith in Jesus Christ. Of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, nearly half (24) held seminary or Bible school degrees.

These Christian quotes of the founding fathers will give you an overview of their strong moral and spiritual convictions which helped form the foundations of our nation and our government.

George Washington
1st U.S. President

"While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian."
--The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.

John Adams
2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."
--Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.

"The general principles, on which the Fathers achieved independence, were the only Principles in which that beautiful Assembly of young Gentlemen could Unite, and these Principles only could be intended by them in their address, or by me in my answer. And what were these general Principles? 

I answer, the general Principles of Christianity, in which all these Sects were United: And the general Principles of English and American Liberty, in which all those young Men United, and which had United all Parties in America, in Majorities sufficient to assert and maintain her Independence.

"Now I will avow, that I then believe, and now believe, that those general Principles of Christianity, are as eternal and immutable, as the Existence and Attributes of God; and that those Principles of Liberty, are as unalterable as human Nature and our terrestrial, mundane System."
--Adams wrote this on June 28, 1813, excerpt from a letter to Thomas Jefferson.

"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. 

It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever."
--Adams wrote this in a letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 3, 1776.

Thomas Jefferson
3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; 

That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event."
--Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, p. 237.

"I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ."
--The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385.

John Hancock
1st Signer of the Declaration of Independence

"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."
--History of the United States of America, Vol. II, p. 229.

Benjamin Franklin
Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Unites States Constitution

"Here is my Creed. I believe in one God, the Creator of the Universe. That He governs it by His Providence. That He ought to be worshipped.

"That the most acceptable service we render to him is in doing good to his other children. That the soul of man is immortal, and will be treated with justice in another life respecting its conduct in this. These I take to be the fundamental points in all sound religion, and I regard them as you do in whatever sect I meet with them.

"As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and his religion, as he left them to us, is the best the world ever saw, or is likely to see;

"But I apprehend it has received various corrupting changes, and I have, with most of the present dissenters in England, some doubts as to his divinity; though it is a question I do not dogmatize upon, having never studied it, and think it needless to busy myself with it now, when I expect soon an opportunity of knowing the truth with less trouble. 

I see no harm, however, in its being believed, if that belief has the good consequence, as probably it has, of making his doctrines more respected and more observed; especially as I do not perceive, that the Supreme takes it amiss, by distinguishing the unbelievers in his government of the world with any peculiar marks of his displeasure."
--Benjamin Franklin wrote this in a letter to Ezra Stiles, President of Yale University on March 9, 1790.

The Great Eagle Shall Rise Again

Final Header
A Prophetic Newsletter

By Karla Shrake

June 20, 2013,Volume 19

And the Lord Roars from Zion...And utters His voice from Jerusalem."
Joel 3:16

"The Lord utters His Voice before
His Army;
Surely His camp is Very Great,
For Strong is he who Carries out His Word."

Joel 2:11

The Great Eagle Shall Rise Again

Part 1

by Karla Shrake

June 20, 2013

"My dear America you have seen both good times and bad but you must understand this is your prophetic hour to wake up for I am beginning to reveal Myself to many across this great land," says your Founder-Father. "This is the hour to search for Me with all your heart and to heed My word with great diligence and care.

 As you do you will find the deliverance and healing you are in such desperate need of. The hour is short and you must respond quickly for the prophetic wheels of time and eternity are turning and the appointed hour of deliverance has begun," exhorts your loving Father.

Time to Rouse from your Comfort-Nests:
"Yes American church I understand your joints, shoulders and muscles have become stiff and even atrophied from so many years of dryness, lethargy and ease. Now is the time to forsake business as usual and the comfort of your nests.

I am coming to awaken you so that you will remember who you are, the greatness that I your covenant Father imparted to from your inception so long ago. You must again lift up your eyes toward heaven so that your spiritual understanding, reasoning and true identity will return. I have called you to be My humble and obedient ones to represent My father's heart of love for the lost and dying in your own country as well as around the globe."

The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail:

"Yes it is true the very gates of hell are battering against you yet again and again with great ferocity even as hurricane winds and waves batter the coastline, but know that they will not prevail against you My faithful ones. You must learn to continually hide yourself in Me and in My latter-day purposes for this is where you will find protection and victory."

"As you learn to truly hide yourself in Me you will discover that I will shield you from the batterings and beatings that hell is spewing forth with such great intensity. Humble yourselves, seek Me while I may be found and stay under the shelter of My strong, eternal wings. Hide yourself in that secret place of intimate fellowship with Me," exhorts your loving Father. "But do not become comfortable for I am moving suddenly and frequently in this critical hour of preparation therefore you must be prepared to move quickly with Me."

Lean into My Faithfulness:

"You must turn toward Me My beloved Eagle and stretch forth the wings of your faith, trusting in Me as your Father-Founder once again. As you lean into Me in this dark hour you will encounter My covenant faithfulness and the lifting of My Spirit."

"Take courage dear ones as the winds of heaven are stirring across this great land as I your Maker have a plan and a purpose from long ago. I am the Alpha and the Omega, and I know the end from the beginning. Find your your strength in Me and in the power of My might, for truly My might has no end." (Part II coming in next week's newsletter.)

*Note from author Karla Shrake:

The above are excerpts taken from the last section of my book "Mantles of Glory,

this section received and penned in 1999. As the author I have taken liberty in making changes, edits and additions to the original text, although the essence of the message remains the same.

Davidic Warriors

Dear Friends and Fellow-Patriots,

The Lord quickened to me to go back and reread the last section of my book "Mantles" about America, that part written 14 years ago.  As we are three weeks away from July 4th, the anniversary of our liberty, I felt He wanted to release a word of perspective, encouragement and exhortation to us and to those this word might be forwarded to.  This is not just about patriotism, it is about His kingdom plans and purposes for our country - that they be fulfilled and not aborted.  

I pray this word will stir the hearts of many to pray and fast for our country and for the leaders of the Body of Christ in America.  Ultimately a nation is ruled by the righteous who bow before Him in faith and humility.   So let us pray that His children would take their rightful places as they kneel before Him in the courtroom of heaven where our Righteous Judge rules according to the everlasting covenant.   Let us stand in agreement with the Mayflower Compact and many other founders and believers who shed both tears and blood for a land of liberty based on the Bible and on The Lamb's eternal sacrifice, the only way to true and lasting liberty.

Blessings to all in the Davidic Warrior prayer-fasting-decree family for although we are decreeing in a hidden and private way, it is divinely powerful for the establishing of His plan and Kingdom in our lives, destinies and families.  May your heart's desires come to pass quickly and surely in this season as He richly rewards faithfulness and devotion to Him.  Know that you are remembered and honored not only in heaven but on earth as well.
love to all,
