Defeat on Border Wall National Emergency
【Updates: On 2/15/2019, President Trump declared ‘National Emergency’ (using available border wall funding): ‘I could do the wall over a longer period time (under prolonged funds negotiations). I didn’t need to do this (declaration), but I’d rather do it much faster (build the wall).’ ‘I expect to be sued (by Congress)’.
No doubt, the continuing battle is not just between Democrats Congress and Senates, but with unsupportive Republicans House and Senators as well. They give different interpretation for ‘emergency and security’ but with the goal to block building the wall. (2 Chron 30:12)
On 3/5 & 6, updated Border reports for February were issued. Alarming stats showed the up turn of border and aliens crisis. These are not narratives or memes, but facts. From these reports, mainstream media and pro-open border activists should draw their own conclusions.
CBP Commissioner, Kevin McAleenan Reported: ‘February apprehension numbers reached its highest levels in 12 years.’: The number of ‘undocumented immigrants’ crossing the southern border for February was the highest in 12 years, according to stats released by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). In 28 days, 76,103 migrants (2718 per day) without required documentation to enter US either presented themselves at legal ports of entry or were apprehended by CBP between ports of entry.
It’s the highest total since 2007. Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) reported. Before President Trump was elected, in October 2016 was 66,842. In this current rate, 2019 projection will reach 1 million. The total number of illegal aliens in 2018 was 521,000. The numbers of arrived as family groups also reached a new peak, with 40,325 parents and children taken into custody, a 67% leap from January’ ‘The numbers of people taken into custody along the Mexico border jumped an additional 31% in February as an unprecedented mass migration of families (40,325 parents and children) from Central America pushes unauthorized crossings to the highest levels in a decade.’
Economic venues through illegal migrations:
Human trafficking, weapon trafficking, money laundering, gangs and terrorists invasions are open money-making venues.
Overview of two parties:
Republican GOP – Clear reluctance, despising Trump’s decision on using National Emergency funds for the wall. However, they aren’t ready to vote to block ‘National Emergency’ Funding. More than a dozen GOP senators are publicly critical of Trump. Their votes would be crucial in coming weeks. Mitch McConnell (Speaker GOP) believed both parties will vote out ‘National Emergency’. As for him, he does not want future Democrat Presidents habitually using ‘National Emergency Funds’ as options, so is not supporting President’s plan.
Democrats 47 Senators will firmly not support building border wall, as their view is for Open-Border. (Romans 12:16-18)
Further voting is at end February for ‘Resolution’ for the President.
Should Senates voted out ‘National Emergency’, President Trump will veto this ‘Resolution’. Resolution will then be upheld by Congress for further assessment. Can a President’s Constitutional power override Congress? This remains to be seen. (Romans 13:1-2) 】
Constitutional ‘Electoral Voting’ in Crisis
【Event: Democrats are trying to abolishing the Electoral College process. The founding fathers established ‘Electoral College’ in the Constitutions, and ‘Popular Votes’ to safe guard all Presidential Elections :
- by counting Electoral Votes from Congress called ‘Electoral College’;
- by counting votes of ‘qualified citizens’ as ‘Popular Votes’
Election and Constitutions (Psa. 33:12)
Popular Votes – The votes recorded at the voting stations and mailed-in votes from ‘qualified citizens’ are ‘Popular Votes’.
Electoral College – The founding fathers also designed ‘Electoral College Votes’ accounted from each state’s Congress and Senate members (Republican or Democrats congress, 1 point for each congress member, 2 points for each senate member) to insure each Presidential candidate (Republican or Democrats) can benefit from their state parties’ Electoral Votes (congress and senate). There are total of 538 Electoral Votes from the 50 states’ congress and senates. It takes a total of 270 to win Presidency.
Even Popular Votes maybe high (than the opponent) for the candidates, the ‘Electoral Votes’ must be 270 and higher to win.
Followed the 2016 Presidential Election, Democrats have planned to remove the Constitutional ‘Electoral College’ process. After two years, is finally making headway. Today, there are 12 states pulling out from the ‘Electoral College’ system and the list is growing. Eventually, all Presidential candidates will depend solely on Popular Votes to win. President Trump won 306 Electoral Votes in 2016, even Hilary Clinton had won 3 million more Popular Votes than him, but lost for short of Electoral Votes.
Constitutions guarding Righteous Government Leaders
This is a revolt attempt against the Constitutions, poses great danger removing the Constitutions in the future. America’s Constitutions are founded on Judea Christian faith and the Word of God. Godlessness has launched to abolish it piece by piece. It’s a war worth taking on protecting the future generations. (Micah 7:3)
Our Founders understood that the key to good government is not how good our documents are, or how good our laws are; it’s how good our leaders are. In all, Proverbs 29:2 signifies godly leaders: ‘When the righteous rule, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.’ . It’s a statement of responsibility, a statement of hope. In America, whether the righteous rule or whether the wicked rule depends totally on the will of both the government and the voters.】
Pray for the New Government in “Northeast Syria”/ Isaiah 19
【Background: After the Syrian Revolution began in 2011, the Assad regime started to pull out of northeast Syria. Since then, northeast Syria is increasingly becoming an autonomous region made up of mostly Kurdish peoples living alongside many Christians. In the past few years a representative form of government has emerged: SANES (“The Self Administration in North and East Syria”). SANES controls a third of Syria and represents some four million peoples living within its borders such as the Kurds, Christians and Arabs. It allows religious freedom and encourages women to have a role in the government. Most important, it is committed to stand against the potential genocide of the Christians and Kurdish peoples living there. The leaders say their hope is to spread this new democracy throughout Syria rather than form another country. We believe this positive development could be key to a great harvest in this region as prophesied in Isaiah 19 (where the prophecies for “Assyria” refers to the Assyrian Empire which ruled over most of the Middle East). President Trump announced last December that he would pull American troops out of North East Syria. At that point Turkey, Russia, and Iran may all turn their focus towards Northeast Syria. If any of these three were to fully take over that region, there is a high likelihood of genocide of the Christians of that area and it could also enable Iran to have a land bridge to easily come against Israel. Please pray for international support and protection over this developing government and for the Lord to bring forth a great harvest in that region. 】
Hamas, Islamic Jihad War Crimes Against Children and Women
【Current event: Terrorist leaders in Gaza sent women and children to violent riots on the border.
Hamas men dressed in civilian clothes: When Hamas launched its weekly demonstrations along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel 10 months ago, it first sent its men and their family members to participate in the protests. A few weeks later, however, Hamas instructed its men to stay away from the border after many were detected and killed by the Israeli army. Most of the Hamas men who were killed during the violence belonged to the group’s military wing but dressed in civilian clothes so that others could accuse Israel of targeting innocent and defenseless civilians.
The plot of using children and women: After the above Hamas plot was uncovered, the group and its supporters in the Gaza Strip resorted to a different tactic: sending children and women to the Gaza–Israel border. This, of course, is an old tactic that Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups have been using for decades. The goal of Hamas is to depict Israel as a state that deliberately targets Palestinian women and children.
Children and women encouraged to throw rocks, explosive devices and firebombs at Israeli soldiers: In recent weeks, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian terrorist groups have been sending thousands of women and children to the border with Israel to participate in the violence. The groups have been encouraging the children and women to throw rocks, explosive devices and firebombs at Israeli soldiers. In addition, the children and women were also encouraged to try to infiltrate the border by damaging the security fence.
Hamas men prefer to hide behind women and children: Palestinians in the Gaza Strip said they have noticed in recent months that Hamas and Islamic Jihad were no longer sending their men to the sites of the clashes. The terrorists prefer to keep a safe distance from the view of the Israeli soldiers, evidently preferring to hide behind women and children. The leaders of the terrorists often briefly show up at the site of the demonstrations to give statements to the journalists before going back into hiding in their villas and offices.
International community fallen into the terrorists’ trap: What is disturbing is not that Hamas and Islamic Jihad are exploiting women and children as human shields. Rather, what is outrageous is the continued silence of the media and the international community. International human rights organizations and journalists are falling into the terrorists’ trap by parroting the blood libel that Israel is「deliberately targeting innocent civilians, especially women and children. 」 It is time for the international community to call on Hamas and Islamic Jihad and the other terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip to stop hiding behind women and children and to stop using them as human shields in their jihad to eliminate Israel.

The UN Human Rights Council accuses Israel: The demonstrations on the Gaza border have been going on for almost a year. The UN Human Rights Council did nothing for Israel but accused her. Just this week, however, for Israel’s actions to defend her people, the Council accursed Israel of committing crimes against humanity.
Disruption on the Gaza border continues: Hamas-instigated demonstration will continue every Friday on the Gaza border causing more casualty. (Source: Intercessors for Israel, 3/1/2019)】
Pray for the Education of Children and Young Men: Socialist Ideas Permeate the Campus and Tarnish our Next Generation
【Current Events: Education is a key link in the inheritance of human history and culture. Its most important mission is to let humanity preserve the culture that God has given to people, waiting for God’s return. Satan wants to destroy mankind and break the connection between man and God. The most important step is to destroy the education based on loving God and, fearing God. In country with a strong oriental traditional culture, Satan has massacred cultural elites, causing cultural gaps, and using educational propaganda and other deceptions to achieve their goals. For the Western countries, it uses the method of infiltration and variability, clothed with liberalism , filled with socialism as the slogan, communism as the essence, and eventually reaching the new world order and pave the way for the Antichrist.
Take the United States as an Example: Campus are Filled with Socialist Ideas
In the United States, for example, Satan raises up the education of “elites”, takes over the power and resources of administration in the primary, secondary and high schools, excludes dissidents, and assimilate like-mindedness, to changes educational concepts, induces students’ thinking, and makes the field of education his targeted penetration.
Since the 1930, socialism, communism, Marxism, Frankfurt School ideology had entered American universities, resulting in serious effect on the humanities and social sciences. New Marxism distorts the classic human culture from the reality with a new theoretical method. Progressive education tries to change students’ attitudes towards life. It is no longer important for traditional schools to cultivate students’ moral character and impart knowledge, emphasizing the thinking skills that are separated from basic knowledge. School teachers and scholars induce students to become against tradition and authority, liberal, atheism, evolution, materialistic pleasure, support for homosexuality and abortion, and away from God creator of all things.
Young People are Full of Extreme Socialist Ideas
After the US presidential election in 2016 , due to the long-term bias of the mainstream media on traditional candidates, the misleading polls made many people, especially young students, unable to accept the election results. Some students ask the professor to cancel the class or postpone the test on the grounds of “fear, fatigue, emotional trauma”; many universities provide many “post-election psychological rehabilitation” services in order to alleviate the students’ “anxiety” and “pain”. These young people ridiculously see the normal election results as more terrible than natural disasters or terrorist attacks, and even rival those students who disagree with us with verbal and physical attack. College students who should have mature minds and considerable tolerance for stress and change have become so ignorant, fragile and naive, which is a great failure of American education. Which is precisely the “success” which depicts Satan’s corruption of American education. The most distressing change in American society in the past few decades has been the total fall of the public education system. This is the result of the infiltration and subversion of the evil.
Another example is the mobilization of many young people to radically promote a “green new deal” with the essence of socialism. On February 23, a student petition group consisting of 15 middle and upper-level students was mobilized to debate with the Democratic Senate in Congress and strongly urged to vote for the “Green New Deal” proposed by the “Justice Democratic Party”. They are brainwashed and believe that if they do not pass the “Green New Deal,” the United States and even the world will perish in less than a decade. Another group of more than 100 young protesters went to the office of the Senate of the National Assembly to petition and urged the Senate to support the “Green New Deal.” Some young people violated the demonstration law and were arrested despite the warnings of the congressional police. These two student events were initiated by the “Sunrise Movement.”
From these incidents, it can be seen that many young people’s minds are blinded, pro-socialism, and are controlled by the darkness behind them.
Separation of Church and State
In addition, since the 1960s, courts across the United States have used the “separation of church and states” as an excuse to expel the reading of the Bible from schools. For example, a local court ruled that students have freedom of speech and press, except for religious topics, and once it involves religion, such statements are unconstitutional; the federal courts in Virginia rule that gay newspapers can be distributed on high school campuses, while religious newspapers can not. .
Education policy reforms, teaching concepts, textbooks, and school management in the United States to a certain extent, affect education worldwide, which can not be ignored! 】
Pray for Taiwan: Facing Another Waves of Homosexuality
【Event: The Coalition for the Happiness recently invited many legislators to support the The Coalition for the Happiness ‘s version of the bill, and asked the legislators to oppose the law of marriage; The Coalition for the Happiness will continue to oppose the action of the Executive Branch’s bill; calling for a 40 days national fasting prayers starting from March 1 .
The Taiwan government conducted a referendum on the legalization of same-sex marriage in November last year . As a result, 7.65 million voted for referendums against the legalization of same-sex marriage, and agreed for the government to establish a special law to protect the rights of homosexual couples. Currently, the draft of the Executive Yuan is released. Although the term “same sex marriage” is avoided in the bill, the content is for the same sex marriage, which violates the referendums. The Executive Branch did not propose a draft amendment to the marriage of a man and a woman, nor did it abolish the relevant laws and regulations on the education of primary and secondary schools, but introduced a same-sex marriage bill that violated the referendums. The Coalition for the Happiness of our Next Generation (Abbr. The Coalition for the Happiness) will continue to oppose the this Executive bill. Before the end of May, within the time period for the revision of the law, there will also be another 40 days of national fasting and prayer, starting February 28th.
The draft of “ Interpretation and Implementation of the law number 748” that was sent to the Legislative Yuan to be reviewed on February 21, is not the “same-sex living law” that the Coalition of Happiness expected. Rather than the next generation of happiness alliance Pastor Shaoen Kuo(Pastor of the House of Christ in Taipei) published the article “ a day of distress, rebuke and disgrace.” on the 21st, calling for the Taiwanese churches, which support the movement of “Love and Protect Family and Children” to pray together and to participate in the convocation of 228 and Forty days of Praying and Fasting that begins on March 1, calling on God to reign and rule the kingdom of men until we see the glory of God .
Approaching May 24, 2 years anniversary of the No. 748 “Sunrise Clause“. due to the referendum on the election in November last year (2018), the 3 referendums proposed by the Coalition of Happiness were passed. A group of citizens who care about the issue of family and children launched a thousand people march around the Executive Yuan prayer vigil at 7:00 pm of February 19, calling on the Executive Director Jenchang Su to honor the referendum results. The original 30-minute prayer vigil drew waves and waves of caring citizen participating. it couldn’t be stopped even after 9:30pm, there were still people swarming in to participate.
However, the Executive Yuan’s version is still not in line with the expectations of the Coalition of Happiness. Pastor Shaoen Kuo believes that the “common marriage law” cannot be contrary to the will of God. Facing such difficulties, the churches in Taiwan should come together and pray until the glory of the Lord is manifested. Pastor Kuo prayed to God and said, “What we can’t do with our hands, we can do with our prayers, nothing is too difficult for God. God, may You call Your churches, to fulfill Your will in 2019, show Your glory in Taiwan, May Your blessing stay in Taiwan”. We declare: “The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord (Prov . 16:33), ” In the Lord’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him. (Prov 21:1)
The following is the full text of “A day of Distress, rebuke, and disgrace…”
How should we respond?
The version of the “Special Law” of the Executive Yuan has been released! The definition of marriage and family is ambiguous, and the implementation of regulations is dodging the point! Many brothers and sisters are confused, disappointed, angry, and bewildered… At this moment, how should we respond?
When I got up in the morning, the Father put the experience of Hezekiah in my heart! “ This is a day of distress, and of rebuke, disgrace ……” (I king 19:1-4) , when the country encountered great difficulties, the enemy attacked, humiliated, people fell into deep distress! Isn’t Judah undergoing a spiritual revival? Isn’t God with them, and blessed them? How did it end up this way? (2 Chronicles 29-32 / II King 18-19)
How could this be? What are we to do ?
In King Hezekiah, the Bible reveals a “way out” at this moment! Before people: silent! (2 Kings 18:36); before God: Cry out! (2 Kings 19:1 ) When the Assyrian army coming toward the city with arrogance and fierce, it is easy to imagine that the whole country was in chaos… a lot of hustle and bustle. Hezekiah told everyone: be silent, go to the Lord and tell Him! Let the voice of the people quiet down, so the work of God can be revealed! Although we can do nothing, our Lord is full of power! So, we saw: never in the history of mankind, God personally intervened and took over – overnight, the angesl of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousands in the Assyrian camp! ( 2 Chronicles 21 / II King 19: 35 ) At the greatest danger, we can experience the greatest glory of God!
Difficulties, cause our souls to wake up!
Isn’t the experience Taiwan went through, along the way similar? – difficulties, has awaken our souls !
- In December 2016, 130,000 people march onto the street Kaida and stood for the truth! However,
- In May 2017, the Chief Justice’s interpretation of the Constitution made people extremely disappointed! At a critical moment, silent, not be discouraged, continue to cry out to God! Suddenly,
- In December 2017, the amendment to the “referendum law” was passed, and there was a break of dawn! Then,
- In the 2018 referendum process, a task that was so impossible that almost no one was optimistic, facing many doubts, ridicules, attacks, distortion… We chose to be silent, not discouraged! Continue to put our hands to work- going all out, do our parts, with weapons in one hand – earnestly appealing to heaven, crying out for God to show His power!
- On November 24, 2018, we saw God’s mighty glory: He reign and make the impossible, possible. He gathered and made the Taiwanese church body shifted, to become the Lord’s army, and possessed the land for the Lord, Hallelujah!
2019 is the year of war, and the year of victory!
The work of God is always: at first, it seems impossible, then, it is too hard, and finally: God did it! From “Impossible, too difficult, to God did it”, is all the work of God, God’s glory, and all we could do is: at each time of hardships, silent, and look to God, not affected by the environment, not discouraged! Continue to do our part and do what needs to be done! Continue to cry out to God and for Him to manifest His might! Then, we continue to experience God! 2019 is the year of glory, we will experience His greater glory! However, without battle, there is no victory, no victory, no glory? Therefore, 2019 is the year of war, the year of victory! At this moment, there are still many brothers and sisters, applying the wisdom, resources, and influence that God has given them! May they not be discouraged and continue: lobbying, mobilizing, fighting, doing what needed to be done! For the rest of us, be silent, keep them in our prayers! Let Joshua know that when they are out fighting hard in the valley, many families are praying fervently on the mountain, co-laboring with them in the battle! They are not alone! Now is only the beginning of 2019. Persist in the war! We believe Taiwan is chosen by God . We will live out the glory of God in the end time generation–so the world can see that the Lord is truly reigning in the kingdom of men! 2019 is the year of glory, God is moving!
Pray for Okinawa the First Nation People in Japan
【Current Event: The only one of the First Nation Peoples recognized in Japan is the Ainu. The United Nations proposed in April, 2018, to the Japanese government again on the issue of the declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, as the Okinawan people with inherent culture should be identified, and called for the re-settlement of the US military base in Okinawa.
Prejudice against Okinawa (Ryukyu)
Okinawa Prefecture consists of 160 islands, used to be called “the Ryukyu Kingdom”, and now the bases of the US military in Japan after World War II. The Okinawa local government has repeatedly appealed to the central government to relocate the US military base in Japan after several crimes convicted by American soldiers in Okinawa. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe still insisted on leaving the US military base in Okinawa Prefecture, with no concern on public opinion as the local referendum won overwhelmingly.
Meanwhile the descendants of the Ryukyu royal family who were born in Okinawa had filed a lawsuit in the Kyoto District Court to demand Kyoto University, then Kyoto Imperial University, to return the remains of their ancestors. The Royal family accused the school of taking the ashes 90 years ago for the sake of school research. The university remained silent.
After Japan conquered the Ryukyu Kingdom in 1879, the then government not only changed the land to Okinawa Prefecture, but also carried out a mandatory exchange of populations. Nowadays, a large number of Ryukyu people actually live in Osaka Prefecture, and many of today’s Okinawan people are former Osaka people, the descendants of traditional Japanese.
The Okinawa (Ryukyu) history of tears
At the end of the 17th century, the Ryukyu Kingdom was invaded by Satsuma in southern Kyushu of Japan, and lost the territory of the Amami Islands. After the Meiji Restoration Period in Japan, the Ryukyu Domain was reorganized in 1872 and soon officially incorporated into the Japanese territory. In 1894, the Qing Dynasty was defeated in the Sino-Japanese War, and the Ryukyu people’s desire to restore the country was shattered.
