Chinese Christian activist Bo Fu threatened with assassination

Pastor Bob Fu, the founder of China Aid, is a brave brother in the Lord. In his new book entitled “God’s Double Agent: The True Story of a Chinese Christian’s Fight for Freedom”, Fu shares his own testimony of escaping China, the Communist agenda to eradicate Christianity, and his work to be a voice for religious freedom.

Now, according to Steve Cleary of Revelation Media, who just interviewed Fu, our Chinese brother in Christ is being targeted for murder. A Chinese billionaire, named Miles Kwok, has made it his mission to kill Bob Fu.

Bob, his wife, and his two daughters are currently in an undisclosed location under police protection. This is not a vain threat; this man is determined to see Bob killed. He is making public pleas for Bob’s murder, and is paying people to do it!

Come alongside Pastor Fu and pray the Davidic prayer found in Psalm 59:1-2. “Deliver me from my enemies, O God; protect me from those who rise up against me. Deliver me from evildoers and save me from bloodthirsty men.”

Dr. Dobson: Vote the platform, not personality in presidential election

In his October newsletter to 800,000 supporters, Dr. James Dobson, host of Family Talk, asked a pointed question.

DOBSON: “How will Americans, and how will you, decide how to vote for as our Chief Executive Officer? I have heard from dozens of friends and acquaintances in recent weeks who have told me they will base their decision solely on a candidate’s rhetoric, tone, style, or likeability. Does that describe your thinking process?

“Just now, as I was about to react to that idea, my wife, Shirley, brought in an email that she had received a few minutes before from a friend. It quoted an anonymous statement that gets to the heart of the issue, as follows, and I’m quoting.

“’This is not a junior high or high school popularity/personality contest. I’m not voting for the person—I’m voting for the platform!

“‘I’m voting for the Second Amendment. I’m voting for the next Supreme Court justice. I’m voting for the electoral college. I’m voting for the Republic in which we live. I’m voting for the police and law and order. I’m voting for the military and the veterans who fought and died for this country. I’m voting for the flag that is often missing from public events. I’m voting for the right to speak my opinion and not be censored for it. I’m voting for secure borders. I’m voting for the right to praise God without fear.

“‘I’m voting for every unborn soul that is at risk of being aborted. I’m voting for freedom and the American dream. I’m voting for good against evil. I’m not just voting for one person. I’m voting for the future of my country!’

“I couldn’t have said it better.”

Senate votes today on Judge Amy Coney Barrett

Today, the U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.

It’s URGENT that you call your two senators at 202-224-3121 and ask them to confirm Judge Barrett.

Biden’s flip flop on fracking

In last Thursday night’s second presidential debate, Joe Biden claimed he never said he opposed fracking and challenged President Trump to “show the tape” at the last presidential debate, reports RealClearPolitics.com.

BIDEN: “I never said I oppose fracking.

TRUMP: “You said it on tape.”

BIDEN: “I didn’t. Show the tape. Put it on your website.”

TRUMP: “I’ll put it on.”

Listen to Biden’s response at a Democratic primary debate.

DEMOCRAT PRIMARY DEBATE MODERATOR: “Would there be any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration?”

BIDEN: “No. We would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated.”

And in this campaign appearance, Biden said this.

BIDEN: “Look in my eyes. I guarantee you, I guarantee you. We are going to end fossil fuels.”

Black voters drawn to Trump

Many Black voters are no longer buying into the Democratic Party’s campaign inciting racial tensions against President Donald Trump. Rasmussen Reports’ latest tally showed a dramatic surge of likely Black voters who approved of President Trump, surging from 25% last Monday to 46% last Friday after the second presidential debate, reports OneNewsNow.

The Hill put out a headline which read “Black male voters are tired of being taken for granted,” reporting that 18–30-year-old Black swing voters view Democrats more negatively and Republicans more positively than their older peers.  They look up to the way Trump “shows strength and defies the establishment.”

Why 40 million Christians cannot afford to sit out the election

And finally, this presidential election, 40 million Christians who sit out elections need to be motivated to vote.  That’s the view of WorldNetDaily.com columnist Michael Nedderman, the author of America’s Primal Prayer.” 

He asked, “Who should better understand the urgency of this existential threat, with its eternal consequences, than liberty-loving Christians who see the true nature of what the Democratic Party advocates as anti-familyanti-Christian culture, and increasingly anti-American, anti-God, and anti-civilization?  [The Democrats] are pro-abortion, and tacitly approving rioting/looting/burning, often fomenting police-hatred [and] advocating abolishing and defunding the police. The Democratic Party is promoting Marxism.”

Nedderman asked, “How is it possible that so many who aspire to Christian moral responsibility are so cavalier about such a consequential civic responsibility, one that has such grave moral significance?”

Romans 12:21 states, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Pro-life author: Imagine a schoolhouse is on fire

Pro-life author Scott Klusendorf asks you to imagine a schoolhouse that is on fire with children trapped inside. A crude talking man with arrogant tweets is willing to join you risking his life to save kids. Meanwhile, a ‘nice’ man thought to be less haughty and with fewer sarcastic tweets not only refuses to help you, he promises to throw gasoline on the fire. Is there no morally significant difference between the two men? Worse still, should we endorse the arsonist?

If you think Biden and the Democrats do not have wicked plans on abortion and will rush to implement them, you have not been paying attention to their campaign promises.

In short, policy trumps personality.

50 million Americans have voted early: On track to hit 150 million

More than 50 million Americans have cast ballots in the U.S. presidential election with 11 days to go in the campaign. That’s a pace that could lead to the highest voter turnout in over a century, according to data from the US Elections Project on Friday, reports The Guardian.

The eye-popping figure is a sign of intense interest in the contest between Republican Donald Trump and Joe Biden, his Democratic challenger.

The high level of early voting has led Michael McDonald, the University of Florida professor who administers the U.S. Elections Project, to predict a record turnout of about 150 million, representing 65% of eligible voters, the highest rate since 1908.
