Blind Nigerian widow w/ 6 kids gets help
On April 4th, Fulani Muslim militants ambushed a village in Nigeria, killing a man named Ibrahim John. In the wake of this tragedy, Ibrahim’s blind widow, Jummai, and six children were left without their husband, father, and breadwinner. Prior to Ibrahim’s death, his family relied on him for food, clothing, and shelter.
In order to support Jummai and her children during this difficult time, International Christian Concern stepped in to rescue them. First, they provided rent for the family to move into a new apartment where they will be safer from the violence plaguing their community.
Second, they provided the family with sewing equipment and a storefront so that they can support themselves financially. One of the older children will operate the business in order to provide financially for his mother and siblings. He said, “Thank you so much. I promise to work hard to support my blind mother and my younger ones.”
Lastly, to sustain the family until the sewing business brings in a steady income, International Christian Concern provided them with dietary staples such as rice, beans, salt, and maize.
Jummai, the widow, said, “I’m so grateful to God. … This chance of living that you’ve given me and my children will forever be remembered.”
James 1:27 says, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
Trump: The press is complicit in propping up “weak” Joe Biden
Last Thursday, President Donald Trump attacked Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as “weak” and the press as complicit in his quest for the presidency, reports RealClearPolitics.com.
TRUMP: “If we had honest press, it would be so great for the USA. They’re just a bunch of phony people. Not all of them. You have some very good ones — like about 10%. (laughter) They’re doing anything they can to get this Sleepy Guy [Joe Biden] into the White House. And I just don’t think the public is gonna fall for it.
“You know, in [Biden’s] best days, 25-30 years ago, he was weak. He was weak. As a senator, he was weak. He was not known as being one of the smart ones. And now it’s not exactly prime time! I can tell you that.” (laughter)
Trump might donate $100 million of own money to re-election
President Trump has discussed spending as much as $100 million of his own money on his re-election campaign, reports Bloomberg.
The billionaire president contributed $66 million to his 2016 campaign.
Priest: “Catholics for Biden is a scam”
A group calling itself “Catholics for Biden” — created to generate grassroots Catholic support for the pro-abortion Democrat Presidential candidate — launched Thursday night with a virtual national Zoom meeting, attracting 1,100 participants, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
Catholics who tuned into the online meeting were repeatedly steered away from being “single issue” voters as a means to help them overcome qualms of conscience regarding the former VP and his running mate, Kamala Harris, who have pledged unwavering support for maintaining a legal right to abortion.
Father Michael Orsi, a priest of the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey, said, “The whole idea of Catholics for Biden is a scam.” The group seeks “to gloss over his hostility to the Catholic teaching condemning abortion.”
Leftist mob’s Molotov cocktail catches fellow rioter on fire in Portland
The Leftist Mob continues to spin out of control in Portland, Oregon for 100 consecutive nights.
At least one rioter was seriously injured after being hit by a Molotov cocktail thrown by a fellow rioter Saturday night in Portland, according to a tweet by Katie Daviscourt.
COVID Tyranny squashes freedom of religion
Today on Generations Radio, I talk about the COVID Tyranny over churches with Daniel Schmid, Senior Litigation Attorney with Liberty Counsel. The Christian legal rights group filed lawsuits on behalf of churches in Florida, Illinois, Colorado, and California.
California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom issued a COVID order shutting down in-person worship AND home Bible studies. Plus, the City of Pasadena sent a threatening letter to Harvest Rock Church, stating, “Each day in violation is a separate violation and carries with it punishment up to one year in jail and a fine for each violation. … Your compliance with these Orders is not discretionary, but mandatory. Any violations in the future will subject you … to potential closures of your Church.”
Liberty Counsel Founder Mat Staver said, “There is neither a pandemic pause button to the Constitution nor an exception for religious gatherings.”

Pastor Tony Evans: Christians vote for God’s glory
EVANS: “Kingdom voting is both the opportunity and responsibility to partner with God for the expansion of His rule in society through civil government. It is only to the degree that you include God’s person and God’s policies in society through civil government, as He defines it, that we can begin to see healing in the church so it can be modeled in the culture.”
Pastor Evans warned what will happen if God is removed from the citizenry.
EVANS: “God has policies — that is only as we embrace His person and His policies that we will experience His presence in healing our lives, our churches, and our nation. Let me say it another way. The further God is removed from the life of an individual, from the life and definition of a family, from the life and definition of the church, and in this case, from the life and definition of a citizenry of a society, the more chaotic those entities become.”
Pastor Evans cited three key Bible verses.
EVANS: “The Bible is clear. For example, Psalm 22:28 puts it this way. ‘The kingdom is the Lord’s, and He rules the nations.’ Did you hear that? Psalm 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.’ Psalm 103:19 says, ‘The Lord establishes His throne in heaven and His sovereignty rules overall.’ Okay, so let’s get this straight. He’s King, running a kingdom, and that involves the nations. So that involves this nation.”
Finally, Pastor Evans explained what the Christian is voting for.
EVANS: “If you are a Christian and you name the name of Jesus Christ, you don’t get to leave God out of your vote. You don’t just get the vote because you like it or want to. You only get to vote for His glory and the expansion of His kingdom. That’s what you’re voting for.”
