E.W. Jackson: Those Who Are 'Against God' Are Intensifying Attacks Because They Know 'We Cannot Be Defeated'

E.W. Jackson, the failed GOP nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia, was among the speakers at last night's "Star Spangled Sunday" event, where he declared that "the forces ... against God" are ramping up their attacks on Christians in America because they know that "we cannot be defeated."

Jackson called on Christians to be bold and take a stand, knowing that "we cannot lose because the God we serve is on the throne and if God be for us, who can be against us?" He said that just as the British continued to attack Fort McHenry so long as the America flag flew, so too will the enemies of God continue to attack Christians.

"You don't attack a defeated foe," he said. "You don't kill a dead enemy ... The attacks are becoming more intense because the forces against us and against God know that we are not about to back down or back up, that we are rising up together as never before and so they are trying to come against us. They just don't understand that we cannot be defeated because our faith and hope is in God":

Mike Huckabee Promises Christians That The 'Sons Of Isaac' Will Defeat The 'Sons Of Ishmael'

Mike Huckabee closed out his remarks at last night's "Star Spangled Sunday" event by recounting how, many years ago, he used to watch Arkansas Razorbacks basketball games when they were re-broadcast late at night, especially when he already knew that they had won the game when it was played live earlier in the day because, no matter what the score was at any point, he knew that his team would ultimately win.

Huckabee urged those in attendance to apply this same lesson in response to the threat from radical Islam, saying that they should read the Bible in order to realize that the Christians will defeat the Muslims in the end.

"I got good news for all the dispirited and disquieted Christians in America who somehow are afraid that the Sons of Ishmael who are challenging us now in the Middle East will overwhelm the Sons of Isaac," Huckabee said. "Let me assure you, I have read the end of the Book! My dear friend, we win!"

'In America's Darkest Hour ... God Stepped In To Save The Day': A History Lesson From FRC

Last night, the Family Research Council hosted an event at First Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina called "Star Spangled Sunday."

Billed as a celebration of 200th anniversary of the national anthem, the event featured speakers like Sen. Ted Cruz, Mike Huckbee, Rick Scarborough, E..W. Jackson and others and turned out to be primarily a promotional event for FRC's "123Vote.com" effort to register and mobilize Christian voters ahead of the midterm elections.

Kicking off the program was a video history lesson in which Kenyn Cureton, FRC's Vice President for Church Ministries, explained the many times that God directly intervened in order to establish and save America.

As Cureton explained, when the British burned Washington during the War of 1812, God sent torrential rains, and even a tornado, to put out the flames and kill the British troops.

"God brought a storm of biblical proportions to Washington," he said, "and unleashed it on those British invaders."

Time and again, "God providentially intervened" in American history to protect this nation, Cureton said, and He will do so again if only this nation will turn back to Him ... by which he presumably means "register and vote for Republicans":

Fischer: Janay Rice 'Getting Knocked Out In a Casino Elevator' Shows The Dangers Of Unbiblical Cohabitation ​

On his "Focal Point" radio program today, Bryan Fischer offered his insights into the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal by saying that Rice's then-fiancée, now-wife Janay Palmer Rice was essentially responsible for her own abuse, which was the result of engaging in unbiblical cohabitation.

As Fischer explained, the Bible strictly prohibits premarital cohabitation, so Ray Rice and Janay Palmer were guilty of engaging in illegitimate sexual immorality and living in sin. This biblical position is reinforced by social science research, he said, that shows that such relationships are more dangerous for women than marriage or living alone.

Fischer said that since Palmer had apparently "not been educated, did not understand biblical standards, she put herself in a place where, if her eyes were open and she was thinking clearly and she had been educated as she should have been in our school system, by her parents, at church, she would have known that the most dangerous place for me to be as a woman is living with a guy I'm not married to."

"If you want to have reasons not to do it," Fischer concluded, "getting knocked out in a casino elevator, that's the only reason that you need ... When biblical standards of morality are ignored, people get hurt":

Mike Huckabee Says Conservatives Can't Accept 'Ungodly' Court Rulings On Gay Marriage, Abortion Rights

Yesterday, Vision America's Rick Scarborough hosted a conference call with Mike Huckabee and Tony Perkins that, as far as we can determine, was designed to promote the "Give Me Liberty" events that Scarborough has been organizing throughout the nation in an effort to encourage pastors to mobilize their congregations ahead of the midterm elections.

During the call, Huckabee said that all of America's problems are "ultimately spiritual" and can only be solved by a revival among the citizens who will "vote the Bible."

He blamed abortion rights laws on the failure of conservative Christians to get involved in politics, leaving him to wonder, "how do we face God with that?" On top of that, Huckabee criticized conservatives for accepting judicial rulings which strike down gay marriage bans, saying there should be a "massive outcry" against the decisions.

"We have people who say 'well, the courts have ruled on abortion, we just have to live with it,' or 'the courts have ruled on same-sex marriage, we just have to live with it,'" Huckabee said. "And I would suggest, no we don't! We shouldn't just accept things that are ungodly and that will cause us to have to stand before God with bloody hands."

The solution, he said, is for pastors to encourage their congregations to "vote the Bible" because doing so will solve every problem, including economic ones "because everything about the economy that's wrong would be fixed if people had a biblical understanding of the economy":

Rick Joyner Says Some Christians Can Cure Ebola Simply Through Their Presence

On yesterday's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner recounted the eight hours he spent in Heaven recently, as well as the regular face-to-face encounters he has been having with Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, and the Prophet Elijah.

During his recent visit, Joyner learned that there is no Ebola virus in Heaven and that Christians are capable of taking authority over the disease here on earth. In fact, there are certain people who are given "total authority over Ebola," allowing them to cure people infected with the disease simply by being in their presence.

"Somebody with Ebola, they come into the room, the Ebola is gone," Joyner said. "That person is healed. It cannot live, cannot exist in their presence."

All Christians will one day have this same power, Joyner said, revealing that he even had a vision of children clearing entire regions of radiation simply through prayer:

Cardinal Francis George Says American Catholics Are Being Forced To Live Under Pro-Gay Sharia Law

In his most recent column for Catholic World News, Cardinal Francis George, Head of the Archdiocese of Chicago, wrote that Catholics in America are being forced to choose between their faith and the "State religion" which imposes "its own form of morality on everyone."

This new religion, he said, compels people to support things like abortion and gay marriage and, as a result, Catholics who refuse worship this "false god" have now essentially become second class citizens just like "Christians and Jews [who] are fined for their religion in countries governed by Sharia law":

In recent years, society has brought social and legislative approval to all types of sexual relationships that used to be considered “sinful.” Since the biblical vision of what it means to be human tells us that not every friendship or love can be expressed in sexual relations, the church’s teaching on these issues is now evidence of intolerance for what the civil law upholds and even imposes. What was once a request to live and let live has now become a demand for approval. The “ruling class,” those who shape public opinion in politics, in education, in communications, in entertainment, is using the civil law to impose its own form of morality on everyone. We are told that, even in marriage itself, there is no difference between men and women, although nature and our very bodies clearly evidence that men and women are not interchangeable at will in forming a family. Nevertheless, those who do not conform to the official religion, we are warned, place their citizenship in danger.

When the recent case about religious objection to one provision of the Health Care Act was decided against the State religion, the Huffington Post (June 30, 2014) raised “concerns about the compatibility between being a Catholic and being a good citizen.” This is not the voice of the nativists who first fought against Catholic immigration in the 1830s. Nor is it the voice of those who burned convents and churches in Boston and Philadelphia a decade later. Neither is it the voice of the Know-Nothing Party of the 1840s and 1850s, nor of the Ku Klux Klan, which burned crosses before Catholic churches in the Midwest after the civil war. It is a voice more sophisticated than that of the American Protective Association, whose members promised never to vote for a Catholic for public office. This is, rather, the selfrighteous voice of some members of the American establishment today who regard themselves as “progressive” and “enlightened.”

The inevitable result is a crisis of belief for many Catholics. Throughout history, when Catholics and other believers in revealed religion have been forced to choose between being taught by God or instructed by politicians, professors, editors of major newspapers and entertainers, many have opted to go along with the powers that be. This reduces a great tension in their lives, although it also brings with it the worship of a false god. It takes no moral courage to conform to government and social pressure. It takes a deep faith to “swim against the tide,” as Pope Francis recently encouraged young people to do at last summer’s World Youth Day.

Swimming against the tide means limiting one’s access to positions of prestige and power in society. It means that those who choose to live by the Catholic faith will not be welcomed as political candidates to national office, will not sit on editorial boards of major newspapers, will not be at home on most university faculties, will not have successful careers as actors and entertainers. Nor will their children, who will also be suspect. Since all public institutions, no matter who owns or operates them, will be agents of the government and conform their activities to the demands of the official religion, the practice of medicine and law will become more difficult for faithful Catholics. It already means in some States that those who run businesses must conform their activities to the official religion or be fined, as Christians and Jews are fined for their religion in countries governed by Sharia law.
