Pray For Church
Pray For Churches to Be Light and Salt
- Genesis 1:27-28 So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
- Matthew 5:13-16 “You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.”
- Ask God to Forgive Church not Taking her Responsibility: Abba Father, You give human being a mandate to subdue all the earth, thus we have responsibility to be good stewards over all the earth including governance in human society. Father, we are sorry that we, the church has forsaken the authority as king and priest.

One after another, the bills and acts abhorred by You are passed and executed and cause the social morality bankrupting. Lord, please forgive us of not caring about the issues of our countries and feel indifferent regarding the suffering and sins in our society. Please forgive us of our avoiding our responsibility, not standing in the gap to intercede for our nation, to raise up voice of justice for Christ. Lord, please forgive us of not knowing Your heart and Your redemptive will toward this broken world; please forgive us of not taking responsibility as citizens to lead the world to walk on the godly way of the Lord by resisting the demonic forces and; prevent our society from corruption.

Why America Boys are struggling in Every Area?
【Event: America Boys are deeply struggling in just about every area.
- Job 29:12 ‘For I assisted the poor in their need and the fatherless who required help.’
- 1 Corinthians 15:33 ‘Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for ‘bad company corrupts good character.”’
Many professionals are pointing to a ‘crisis of fatherhood’ as one of the key factors as a third of all US children are now being raised in a home without a father. Of course this negatively affects girls as well. However, the lack of a traditional family structure is not the only crisis. There is something about the lack of a masculine role model that seems to particularly hurt boys. (Job 29:12)
Here are three other key areas parents should concern.
- Worldwide, 60% of the students achieved less than the baseline level of proficiency in any of the three core subjects of the Program for International Assessment are boys. Boys’ IQs are dropping.
- Today, girls are educationally outperforming boys in elementary school, middle school and high school.
- In colleges, the performance gap is absolutely enormous. In fact, females have earned at least 57% of all bachelor’s degrees in US for 18 years in a row.
- Mental Health
- Boys’ suicide rate goes from only slightly more than girls before age 14; 3 times of girls’ 15-19; 4.5 times of girls 20-24. Mass shooters, prisoners and Islamic State terrorism recruits are at least 90% male. (1 Cor. 15:33)
- In addition to all of above, males commit 90% of all homicides in US. This is one area where the lack of a father in the home really seems to make a difference. An alarming study showed when there is 1% increase in fatherlessness (households) in a neighborhood, leads an average of 3% rise in adolescent violence.
- Sadly, young people are steadily becoming unhappier over time. (From Free Beacon)…They have seen a rise in 12 to 25 years old saying they are unhappy. Since 2012, the proportion of 8th and 10th graders felt unhappy has crept up from 13% to 18%. At the same time, 18 to 25 years old risen up from 11% to 17%. (General Social Survey).
- Connecting with other similar studies, showed clear link between unhappiness and social media use. The internet can be used for good things, but it can also be heavily toxic where many young people are almost constantly ‘plugged in’ to it.
- From various national surveys, screen-touching activities are linked to depression and unhappiness. Kids using devices more than 3 hours a day are 30% more likely indicator of suicidal.
Overall: 100% of 18-24 years old are on social media; 54% think they spend too much time on their cell phone; 72% of teens say their phone is sometimes the first thing they look at upon waking up. Increase of isolation and depression.
- Physical Health and drugs
- There is a crisis with shorter life expectancy in men.
- Lack of physical exercise, activities
- Young males tend to get hooked on drugs and alcohol at much higher rates than young females.
Today’s parenting needs unusual wisdom and understanding, observing how the changing world and influence affecting the children, behavior and their prospective future. Their being parents with own families, contributors to communities, nations and services. 】
Children’s Curriculum and Congress LGBT Ideology Takeover
【Event: One of the House of Democrats Congress’ priorities in 2019 is to make radical changes to children’s LGBT Curriculum to Federal level by H.R.5 (the Equality Act Bill)
- Jude 1:7 ‘And don’t forget Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion. Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God’s judgment.’
- 1 Corinthians 6:18, 20 ‘Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.’
- Romans 16:20 ‘The God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.’
H.R.5 – the Equality Act Education Bill, where the House of Representatives (Democrats) aimed to force LGBT education agenda to the federal level. H.R.5 is heading to its first hearing on 4/9 in the U.S. House Education Committee. It aims to go beyond the specific curriculum changes. It’s very significant and extremely rare for federal government pushing so strongly to insert itself in the specifics of children’s K-12 curriculum. This is the ‘Big Democrats Government Moment’, flexing its muscles to force the LGBT agenda in every classroom culturally to America’s children. (Jude 1:7)
House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi (D) representing the LGBT and LGBT activist groups who fund her campaign succeed in pushing H.R.5 forward, the following major changes will greatly impact our children (from Family Policy Alliance):
- Civil Rights (Rights of a Citizen). The importance and seriousness of the Civil Rights past historical movements, i.e. ‘racial equality’, and other accomplishments will no longer be taught. It’s then a powerful education takeover.
- H.R.5 will change the meaning of ‘Equal rights for all Americans’, their goal is NOT about equal education. It’s about forcing every administrator, teacher, child and parent involved in schools to give any person who identifies as LGBT has a platform in our schools and special rights above and beyond everyone else.
- Our students will no longer be able to learn about virtue of heroism and real sacrifice for i.e. racial equality and others, instead, rainbow flag posters of sexualized political agenda on their school wall, deserves better dominance.
- ‘Equal Rights for All’ would now means primarily ‘Secular Humanism’ to ensure young children are informed that ‘little boys can become little girls’ and related education deemed over character, virtue, morality, value and respect. (1 Cor. 6:18, 20)
- Schools will be required to cover ‘LGBT sexual experiences in sex-ed
- Colorado and California both already have laws similar to H.R.5, and with those states require teaching LGBT experiences in sex ed. with guidelines including teaching children about having multiple partners; warning children about ‘religion abuse’ that would include ‘forcing others to adhere (morally) to rigid (traditional) gender roles. California prohibits any teaching that would reflect adversely on the LGBT community. Colorado has introduced legislation that refers to traditional perspectives on sexuality as shameful, fear-based and bigoted. (Ro 16:20)
- H.R.5 – Schools will be required LGBT Ideology to takeover also history and social studies (cultural).
- In New Jersey’s new LGBT curriculum state-law policy (for coming 2020-21 year): literature or history class students are not just taught the historic contributions of historical figures. One textbook example ponders (commentary) the fact President James Buchanan may have been gay because he never married and maintained close male friends. A former American president is reduced to the sort of suspicion.
- Above all, parents really would have no opportunity to opt-out their children from exposure to this type of teaching , or the topic of gender transition because it’s woven into every aspect of the curriculum. If H.R.5 were to pass, parents would have no voice in their children’s classrooms.】
Pray for Israel – A New Cycle As Israel Enters the Passover Season
【Background: The Passover is to commemorate and celebrate Israel’s escape from a plaque on the land of Egypt by the Passover Lamb.
- Exodus 12:11b-14 “It is the Lord’s Passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord. The blood shall be a sign for you, on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt. “This day shall be for you a memorial day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord; throughout your generations, as a statute forever, you shall keep it as a feast.”
In the month of Nisan, when God commanded the first Passover, He also reset the Hebrew calendar making Nisan the first month of the year. Nisan is therefore often considered the month of redemption. It leads us to Passover, Good Friday (Messiah’s suffering) and the earth shaking event of the resurrection of Jesus.
- Exodus 12:1-2 “The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, “This month (Nisan) is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year.”
Events in the month of Nisan (2019):
- April 19 (Nisan 14th) the eve of the Passover (preparation day – no yeast in seven days). [Good Friday]
- April 20 (Nisan 15th) Passover begins (1st day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread)
- April 21 (Nisan 16th) the Feast of Firstfruits. [Easter]
- April 26 (Nisan 21th) End of Passover
This year, the eve of the Passover and the feast of the Firstfruits coincide with Good Friday and Easter (4/19, 4/21), respectively. It is God’s heart from the beginning that the feasts of the Lord portray perfectly and completely God’s plan of redemption through Jesus Christ. The spring season begins this month and it represents a new beginning. This month Mr. Netanyahu was elected as the new Prime Minister and a new cabinet will be formed as well. We pray that Israel will enter a new season, a cross-over to a new era! 】
Pray for Israel: Rain Filling Up Shrinking Sea of Galilee
【Current event: After years of drought, Israel is experiencing an unexpected amount of rain. The rain is especially abundant in the Galilee, where the lake rose by 12 inches in four days (3/31-4/3), according to Israel Water Authority. By 4/12, Galilee was only 8.5 feet away from being full. There is still snow in Mount Hermon, and there may be more rain next week. The long drought forced Israel to turn to other sources of drinking water and discouraged fisherman from fishing there. Israel also used technological innovation to pump water back into the Galilee. Thanks to the rain, the Galilee is slowly filling up on its own. After 7 years of drought, Israel is now followed by unexpected rain 】(Source: CBNNEWS.COM 04-03-2019)
Canada’s 2019 Federal Election
【Event: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, representing the Liberal Party will be running for re-election in October 2019. Trudeau won 2015 election against then Conservative P.M. Stephen Harper (P.M. from 2006 – 2015).
The three main political parties are: Left-Democrat Party, Liberal Party, Right-Wing Conservatives.
Trudeau has formed a majority government in 2015, continues to edge out its main opposition. In the summer of 2015, he launched his campaign at the Gay-pride Parade (Lev. 18:22m 20:13), made 3rd in the poll, and was the youngest among all contenders, today, he is the oldest.
He and his liberal party enjoy the benefits of an upstart conservative party led by Stephen Harper in 2015. His current contenders including:
- Top Rival: ‘Right-wing’ Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, age 39, is unknown outside the Conservative Party’, a reflection of former P.M. Stephen Harper (Conservative) is pro-Brexit, skeptic of globalism, with suburban values, aims at smaller government.
- People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier’s current polling is still low.
Economy: Canada views President Trump as a counterpoint to Canada. Economic indicators remained sound, unless shifts in the coming months. However, slump crude prices, soaring housing prices in Toronto and Vancouver, and home manufacturing may wage red flag.
Pipeline Politics : Bound up oil prices – whether Alberta could get a decent price for exports. Pipeline politics will feature heavily in 2019 contest. Pipeline projects came to a halt in the summer pending further review and consultations with indigenous peoples (native Canadians). Trudeau will see problems from all sides on this – criticism for not getting it done at the first place. And indigenous resistance to construction is guaranteed to be protracted and fierce as they protect their land from the expansion.
Seeker of Conservatives: Trudeau wants to connect not just with his base – liberals, educated, urban, and young, but also with the grassroots, denim crowd which his opponent Andrew Sheer represents.
Immigration reduction: In 2017, Trudeau issued open invitation to refugees: ‘To those fleeing persecution, terror and war….Welcome to Canada.’ In 2018, his government is working hard to deter thousands of people who are walking from the US border to seek asylum in Canada.
Canada began granting fewer irregular border crossers (mainly, Syrians, Haitians, Nigerians) the ‘Refugee Status’ at the port of entry. Crossing the Canadian border without reporting at a port of entry is an offense. Syria refugees (84%, among 9% Haitians, 34% Nigerians) are required screened abroad and undergo security and medical checks prior issuance of visa to enter Canada. Crossers are detained by Canadian border (Montreal) emergency shelter for asylum application. While waiting for their cases to be adjudicated, they can access healthcare, public school for free, like Canadian. Canadians clash over border migration as the result of Trudeau’s Executive Order without consulting them. On an average day, about 75 people to walk into Quebec’s popular crossing.
Trudeau’s benchmark: He cut middle-class taxes; expanded parental benefits; enacted pension reform; Pot legalization; carbon taxes; 5.8% unemployment (4 decades low); welcomed IS back to Canada; $10.5 Million awarded to convicted Al-Qaeda terrorist Omar Khadr; full protection for transgender.
Noteworthy: In February 2019, Attorney General, Wilson-Raybould was fired when she refused Trudeau’s order to remove criminal charges from SNC’s (a Canadian Construction Co.) fraud and corruption charges related to its construction projects in Libya, forced to allow SNC conducting businesses (Jere. 22:17). This could cause major political shift to Trudeau unchartered pro-liberalism. He pitches himself as the best candidate for progressives.
Bottom Line: Opposition candidates have not posed much of a threat to Trudeau yet it begins showing a sliding poll. However, it seems his own penchant may be his stumbling block that may bring Canada back to conservative-right. 】
Pray for the Global Measles Outbreak
【Current event: According to international epidemic monitoring data from the Centers for Disease Control, the global measles outbreak continues to rise. The CDC urges people to be alertful when going to areas where measles spreads. In and out of public places or places where people are crowded, attention should be paid to respiratory health and cough manners. If there is a local medical need, patients in the hospital or clinic should wear masks throughout the process to reduce the risk of infection.
Measles infected areas

Rockland, New York,currently announced a state of emergency last week, prohibiting anyone under the age of 18 who has not been vaccinated to a public place.
The World Health Organization, the Global Vaccine Alliance, UNICEF and the Ministry of Health of the Sudan have launched a mass vaccination campaign to vaccinate more than 11 million children under the age of 10 in Sudan from now until May 2. According to official Sudanese data, measles is the third leading cause of infant deaths. As of March this year, Sudan has reported 834 cases of measles, compared with 4,980 last year.
Measles is an infection caused by a virus. It often appears in late winter or spring. When a person with this virus coughs or sneezes, the droplets containing the virus will fall through the air onto the surface of nearby objects. Children are infected with the virus by inhaling or touching the droplets, then touching the face, mouth, eyes or ears.
Measles begins with the face and then spreads throughout the body to the feet, usually starting with a fever for a few days, then cough, runny nose and conjunctivitis occur. Conjunctivitis is an eye infection, sometimes called “red eye disease.” A rash began to appear on the upper part of the face and neck to the lower part of the body. The rash then spread to the arms, hands, legs and feet. After 5 days, the rash disappeared in the order in which they appeared.】
Revive Europe for 40 Weeks of prayer – Pray for the Revival of Portuguese
【Background :Population: 10.2M, Evangelical: 3.2%. Although Portugal is a religious country, few people know Jesus Christ. The focus of the people’s life is on family, career, school and status, not on God. They care about the opinions of others. Please pray that the people can understand that they can only find true satisfaction in Christ, to fall in love with Jesus, and follow and serve Him with all their heart and might; Christians can be strong and courageous to preach the gospel to those who are in contact with them.
Country Profile: Since the 16th century, Portugal has become a maritime power in the era of great navigation. It has established the world’s first colonial empire across Africa, Asia, Oceania and South America. Its scope has included the territory of 53 countries and also made Portuguese. Become a common mother tongue of 240 million people. After the declaration of independence in Brazil, the most important colony of Portugal in 1822, the Portuguese state quickly fell. In 1910, the Portuguese royal family was overthrown by the revolution, opening the era of the First Republic. In 1974, the armed forces composed of middle and lower-level officers broke out the anti-war carnation revolution, and Portugal became a free and democratic country.
After the global financial crisis in 2008, the Portuguese economy was sluggish, the unemployment rate climbed and exports fell sharply. Although the economic climate of most EU countries has gradually recovered, the economic growth rate of Portugal is still lower than the EU average. In 2011, Portugal accepted the EU’s 78 billion euros (about 87 billion US dollars) bail-out loans, and did not regain economic autonomy until 2014. At present, the financial situation has improved slightly, but the domestic investment environment has deteriorated, the solvency has been greatly reduced, and the debt crisis is imminent. The unemployment rate for June 2016 was approximately 11.2%. In recent years, young people in Portugal have become more and more serious in drug abuse. According to statistics, more than 50% of young people have taken drugs.
Spiritual situation: In 1976, the Portuguese Constitution reaffirmed the policy of separation of church and state and guaranteed freedom of belief in all religions. At present, 84.5% of the Portuguese people believe in Catholicism, 9% do not show, 3.9% have no religious belief, and 2.2% believe in other religions. In recent years, the number of Christians in Portugal has fallen sharply . About 11% of Catholic youths have lost their faith, and the number of evangelical churches has decreased from 1,630 in 2000 to 964 in 2016. The Muslim community is mostly composed of new immigrants from previous African colonies (Mozambique and Guinea Bissau), North Africa (mainly Morocco) and India . In 2010, Portugal officially became the 8th country in the world to recognize same-sex marriages, but it was stipulated that homosexual marriages were not allowed to adopt children. Please pray that the people understand that only in Christ can they find true satisfaction, fall in love with Jesus, and serve Him with all their heart and soul; Christians can be strong and courageous to preach the gospel to those who are in contact with them.

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 referendum. The Happiness Alliance will continue to oppose the actions of the Executive Branch bill. Before the end of May, it will be the period of revision of the law. On February 28th, there will also be a 40 days national fasting and prayer.
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 the Basques, the First Nation People in Europe
【Current Event: The Basques are one of the oldest people in Europe, dating back to the descendants of the European Paleolithic resident Cro-Magnon Man. They entered Europe much earlier than the Indo-European people, and lived in France, the Pyrenees and other places in Spain. Its language Euskera bears no clear relationship with Indo-Europe or any other language in the world.
The Basques lived in the north-central part of Spain and southwestern France for generations. With 3 million population they form a regional culture, a small stateless country in more than 20,000 square kilometers on both sides, dominant in three Spanish provinces and in three French provinces. The religious belief is Roman Catholic.
The period of the Navarre Kingdom
The residents of the Navarre Autonomous Region were predominantly Basques. In 778 AD, the Frankish King Charlie was frustrated when he entered the south. He led the troops to pass through the Roncesvalles to return, but on the way he was ambushed by the Basques. Shortly after the war, the Basques became independent, and the country was established. Not until 905 the Navarra Kingdom was renamed. When Sancho III was in office, the country was the strongest. By virtue of its martial arts and marriage, the territory was greatly expanded. Since the 13th century, the throne has moved to the hands of the French.
In 1512, Upper Navarre was captured by Spain. Lower Navarre continued to be independent, but in 1589 it was incorporated into France for King Henry’s succession to the throne. Henry IV was the first generation of the French Bourbon dynasty. His grandson later became the king of Spain, Philip V, who established the Bourbon dynasty in Spain.
Nonetheless, the Basque province enjoyed a great deal of autonomy rights until the French Revolution took place in the north and a religious war in the south attempted to establish a Catholic monarchy. Since then, some people in the Basque society have tried to establish an independent regime, which is not satisfied with the autonomy of the Basque country as defined by Spain.
In the early 1970s, Canadian scholars proved the deeds of the legendary Basque people. After 10-year research, they proved that since the 16th century the Basques had been to the Americas. As early as the 1840s, the Basques had mastered whaling technology, which was one of their main means of making a living. And Canadian archaeologists have discovered many Basque tombs, whaling tools and living utensils on the shores of the Labrador Peninsula, Sadr Island, and Twin Island. The diligent Basque people lived in the Bay of Biscay for generations. They mastered the excellent navigation technology and were the world’s first whaling expert. Even in today’s high technology, whaling is not easy. What whaling technology did they rely on then? Perhaps this is God’s gift to this legendary people!
ETA , Basque separatist group
The ETA terrorist organization, founded in 1959, has been attempting to achieve independence in the Basque region through assassinations and explosions. Spain, the United States and the European Union have listed “ETA” as one of the terrorist organizations in the world. “ETA”, the abbreviation of the Basque language, means “Basque Country and Freedom”. Since 1968, ETA has requested the establishment of an independent Basque country in the Basque regions of northern Spain and of southern France. In the past 30 years, more than 850 people in Spain have lost their lives in the bloody terror caused by ETA. In September 1998, “ETA” reached a ceasefire agreement with the Spanish government, but by the end of 1999, “ETA” unilaterally tore up the ceasefire agreement and madly created more bloody terrorist incidents. From the end of 1999 to the present, 30 people were murdered in these bloody terrorist incidents. In recent years, the number of people killed by the ETA have dropped from 23 in 2000 to three in 2003.
