THIS IS WHY IRAN ATTACKED ISRAEL

by Jack Watts If Iran was a good-faith actor in international politics, which it is not, they would not have attacked Israel, but they did, using rockets located in Syria. This happened within a day after President Trump nullified the Iranian Nuclear Deal (JCPOA).   Although Israel has been crystal clear that Iranian military fortifications established in Syria would not be tolerated, Iran built them anyway. Using the abandonment of the nuclear deal as a pretext, Iran attacked with rockets, precipitating the largest response Israel has made since the war in 1973.   The Iron Dome defense system, developed...

DID THE FBI PLANT A MOLE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN TO SPY?

by Jack Watts It is becoming increasingly evident that the FBI was engaged in a willful, deliberate plot to undermine the Trump campaign and his subsequent Presidency, by planting a mole inside the campaign. Apparently, the purpose of this spy was to either find Russian collusion or, more likely, to create the false narrative that collusion existed.   This is why the FBI and the DOJ have been so reluctant to provide Congress with documents related to the Trump campaign and investigation. Stating that it would be a “threat to national security” to reveal the name of the spy,...

RUSSIA Would Lose Arms Race – Period

by Jack Watts President Trump has been criticized for telling Putin that the USA would “win an arms race” with Russia. To some, that might seem braggadocios, but it’s not. It’s an easily provable fact. Trump just wanted to hammer this reality home to the bellicose Russian leader. Let me explain why Trump was wise and accurate to make that statement.   The GDP of the USA is about $19.4 trillion per year. Russia’s is $1.5 trillion, making our economy thirteen times larger than Russia’s. Normally, we spend about 3.5% on defense, which equates to about $700 billion. To...

Intentionality

by Bill Worell To reach your potential you must grow, and to grow, you must be highly INTENTIONAL! Intentionality is simply mental toughness. And, mental toughness is the willingness, day in day out, to keep the commitments you make to yourself. Mental toughness is the willingness to do the little things that separate the mediocre from the champions. In 1960, the Green By Packers lost the NFL Championship to the Philadelphia Eagles. It was a devastating defeat for the Packers, who walked off the field knowing they were the better team and should have won the game. Coach Lombardi called all the players together in the locker and told them in a very level voice, “Perhaps you didn’t realize that you could have won this game. But I think there is no doubt in your minds now. And that’s why you’ll win it all next year.” With this vision clearly focused in their minds, the Packers won it all in 1961 and won it again in 1962 for good measure. They had become intentional! This year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation that rocked the political, religious and economic foundations of Europe and paved the path for Christian civilization in the West. While prophets have long been emphasizing REVIVAL it may be a REFORMATION that actually arrives. Think—Do we NEED a revival or reformation? One pastor friend defined...

All The Way, Not Almost!

by Bill Worrell In our daily lives, there are a number of things we simply take for granted: appliances and productivity. And when it comes to appliances, do you ever buy new technology thinking, “This is it the ultimate! There’s no way anyone can improve on this design!” That’s how I used to feel about my VHS player. That’s also how I felt bout my Apple lap pc—the FIRST apple lap pc—and about my cassette tape collection. One-day pastor Tim Lambert overheard me tell someone I had just purchased a new music TAPE. And he chimed in “Now, you’re showing your age! Yet we know you meant CD!” The bottom line: Out of date!! Worthless—unless you can find a “collector!” Don’t you just loathe and hate getting stuck? I think as Christians, many of us find ourselves being spiritually stuck too. Just like the Israelites, how many Christians get stuck in the wilderness or even on the edge of their promised land? A sad place to get stuck is when you’ve “almost” taken possession of your promised land. Untold miracles happened along a time-consuming journey and you have gloriously stepped into your promised land. God gives you not just a glimpse, but also a panoramic view of this beloved land. Don’t stop here at the edge. It would be tempting to have no more need of manna and quail....
