A GoFundMe page for Prince Harry’s & Meghan’s mansion?

Apparently, someone actually set up a fundraising page on GoFundMe to help Prince Harry and Meghan Markle pay off the $11 million mansion they recently purchased in California. The page was set up shortly after the couple’s Oprah interview. It has since been pulled down after only raising just over a $100. The Daily Mail explains: A fundraising campaign set up to help Prince Harry and Meghan pay the £11million mortgage on their California home has been closed after raising just £78.64.  The GoFundMe page was set up by Anastasia Hanson, 56, from California, two days after the couple’s bombshell Oprah interview and titled ‘Harry and Meghan $5 Donation to Buy Home (£3.61)’. Organiser Ms Hanson wrote on the page that the ‘jobless’ Duke and Duchess of Sussex had been going through a ‘very rough time’ after having funding for their security and lifestyle pulled by the Royal family, The Sun reports. Speaking during their interview with Oprah, aired last Sunday in the U.S, Prince Harry revealed that the couple had been ‘cut off financially’ after they stepped down from Royal life abandoning up to …

Guess who is cutting into the COVID vaccine line?

Officials for a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Pasadena, California for those holding vital positions was forced to cancel after its online booking slots were flooded with those who weren’t eligible. The clinic was intended for senior citizens and those working in important fields such as heath-care, child-care, food services and teachers. So who were these ineligible people who thought they were so important that they could cut into the line? It was mostly Hollywood and media.

Jordan Smith, 2015 The Voice winner, provides a key to success

You may remember Jordan Smith, he was the believer that won Season 9 of The Voice in 2015. Raised in a Christian home of pastor parents, Jordan who also served as the church’s worship leader, attended Lee University a private Christian university based in Cleveland, Tennessee. It is interesting to note, that his success was due in part to perseverance, because he had previously auditioned for the show and been rejected. But he was accepted the second time and his first song, Chandelier, resulted in a four chair turn by the coaches that resulted in Jordan choosing Adam Levine as coach. During Season 9, he was the first artist from The Voice to top the iTunes pop chart when his song Great is Thy Faithfulness pushed ahead of Adele’s Hello to the number one spot. The song also placed number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on Billboard’s Christian Song chart. His semi-final rendition of Queen’s Somebody to Love would once again send Adele’s Hello to second place on iTunes. Amazingly, it …

Video: Is Genesis history?

This video is definitely worth a watch if you want to get a different side of the story of the creation and evolution debate. Well produced. If nothing else, watch the first two minutes. I found their explanation of the worldwide flood fascinating. One Christian geologist believes the massive mountain ranges were created after and by the flood. I did a podcast recently on dinosaurs and pulled one verse out of Genesis to explain why the dinosaurs disappeared., an no there demise wasn’t caused by a flood.

Video: The Lamentations of Jeremiah

An orchestra in Munich, Germany has just released this video on Jeremiah’s prayers from the book of Lamentations on Babylon’s sacking of Jerusalem and destruction of the Jewish Temple in 586 BC. The video was produced during the pandemic. Aleteia, a Catholic news site, explains: A German orchestra has released most incredible work of sacred music to be recorded since the world pandemic began. Titled Oratio, the work draws on the texts of the biblical Book of Lamentations, which when put to music is usually called “The Lamentations of Jeremiah.”  This is a brand new composition from contemporary German composer Mathias Rehfeldt. A composer of sacred music and film scores, Rehfeldt beautifully captures the emotion behind the text, which is a collection of poetic laments for the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC. The work features a full orchestra and chorus performing at Munich’s jaw-dropping Theatine Church, conducted by Father Robert Mehlhart OP.

Why did the New Orleans’ mayor get Christian singer Lauren Daigle cancelled from a New Year’s event?

It appears that the Democrat mayor of New Orleans, LaToya Cantrell, was able to have Christian singer Lauren Daigle, 29, cancelled from an upcoming New Year’s celebration at New Orleans’ Jackson Square. A local radio station, WWL, first reported that the cancellation took place after Mayor Cantrell, who loves writing letters, sent one to Dick Clark Productions (DCP) that was organizing the event telling them to cancel Daigle because she participated in an outdoor worship service in that city on Nov. 17, 2020. The event was led by worship leader Sean Feucht as part of his Let Us Worship protests across America. In her letter to DCP, Cantrell wrote: “She harmed our people, she risked the lives of our residents, and she strained our first responders in a way that is unconscionable – in the midst of a public health crisis. This is not who we are, and she cannot be allowed to represent New Orleans or the people she willfully endangered.” However, many are asking why Cantrell did this and several political leaders spoke …

My new favourite spiritual warfare song

We have weapons to pull down spiritual strongholds: 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NKJ) And in the days of King Jehoshaphat: 21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord,For His mercy endures forever.” 22 Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. (2 Chronicles 20:21-23 NKJ)

How a prophetic word changed Gemma Hunt’s life

Gemma Hunt, 36, is not well known on this side of the ocean, but in Britain she has gained a significant media presence as a children TV presenter on BBC. It was a career sparked by a prophetic word she received as a teenager. She currently is the lead presenter on CBeebies’ Swashbuckle, a pirate theme BBC game show targeted at two to seven-year-olds and also on the BBC’s program Songs of Praise. Since she was hired by BBC in 2002, Hunt has not been shy about her faith in Christ. She was raised in a Christian home and attended a local Baptist church, but admits she was a bit of rebel. In an interview with Premier Christianity, Hunt said that changed while attending Hill House, a Christian summer camp, where she made a decision for Christ at the age 11. But it was while attending a summer camp five years later, that she received a prophetic word that would set the course for her life. She was 16 and attending a Christian camp called …

Did Luke Bernard’s healing involve ‘battering’ prayer?

Doctors told the family of actor Luke Benjamin Bernard, 25, that it would be a miracle if he survived his serious car accident in a vegetative state. Bernard came from a Christian home and in a podcast on Pureflix, Bernard shared his story of what happened after a serious car accident in 2013. When he arrived at hospital, doctors classified him as level 3 on the Glasgow Coma Scale. His pupils were dilated and fixed and doctors told his family to get to the hospital as soon as possible fearing death was imminent. However, his Christian parents would not accept his death sentence. They began praying for their son, and Bernard explained the two important elements of their prayer that led to his miracle recovery. First, he says it was persistent prayer “Basically, they did the best thing they could for me … and the only thing they could have done was — they prayed. They read scriptures, they sang praise … at my bedside again and again and again.” Secondly, he says it was …

Was Mariah Carey impacted by a Christian prophetess?

Having sold 200 million records, Mariah Carey, 50, is a popular American singer and song-writer. In fact, she was the first singer to have her first five singles top the Billboard Hot 100. Last year, based on sales and chart performance, Billboard ranked her as the top female performer in the US. Mariah came from what some might describe as a dysfunctional family and neither her mother nor father, who divorced, were Christian. But there were Christians on her father’s side of the family and even one who apparently was in the ministry. Christian Post recently wrote about Mariah’s recent book, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, where she shared, among other things, about the importance of faith in her life. This included one experience that suggests she was impacted by the Holy Spirit as Mariah was ministered to by Nana Reese, an aunt on her father’s side. Reese not only ministered at a church in Harlem, she was also considered a prophetess. There had been a massive blow up in the family and her Aunt …

Candace Cameron Bure would rather share Jesus that return to ‘The View’

In an interview with Fox News, actress Candace Bure, 44, mentioned that she would rather be sharing Jesus than return to “The View” a popular talk show she co-hosted in 2016. Bure told Fox News: “I just don’t publicly want to talk about politics. Not because I don’t believe that my viewpoints and opinions are important but I would much rather share Jesus with people. That’s really my passion.” The question came up because ABC’s popular daytime talk show is looking for another cohost after Abby Huntsman announced in July that she was leaving the show. Candace left The View citing conflicts with her acting career and stating that travelling each week from California to New York for the show was proving hard on her and the family. In an interview with Explore Entertainment, Candace explained her decision to leave: “I tried to be Superwoman, but I’m gonna not try anymore.” Candace rose to fame when she played the role D.J. Tanner in the popular TV series Full House. She continued the role in a remake …

Christian Actress defies CA lockdown & attends church

Claiming that the freedom to worship God is protected under the US Constitution, Christian actress Sam Sorbo attended Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Newbury Park, California this past Sunday (Aug 23, 2020). Sam is the wife of Christian actor Kevin Sorbo. California Gov Gavin Newsom has issued lockdown orders restricting church services to 25% of capacity or a 100-person maximum. In the face of this, several churches, including John MacArthur’s Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, are openly violating these orders stating that while church services are severely restricted, the government is allowing BLM protests to continue even though they are violating Covid health restrictions. LifeSite News recently interviewed several people, including Sam, who attended the Godspeak church service this past Sunday: “It’s my God-given right to be able to worship God freely, and it’s protected by the Constitution,” Sorbo stated. She also explained that it’s frustrating to see the government overstep its bounds and disregard the constitutional, God-given rights of every American citizen. She encouraged Christians to take a stand in the face of government restrictions …

Several secular media outlets have reported on how pop superstar Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey, the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, were baptized together in an Idaho lake in July. The baptisms were performed by Judah Smith who pastors Churchome in Seattle, Washington. Several family members and at least one celebrity, E! host Jason Kennedy, were present at the baptism.

Denzel Washington says being filled with the Holy Spirit ‘scared’ him

In a recent Instagram interview with A.R. Bernard, who pastors Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., actor Denzel Washington shared the moment that he was filled with the Holy Spirit. Denzel said that there were three times in his life, when he committed his life to Christ, and on the third time, while attending the Church of God in Christ in West Angeles, Denzel was filled with the Holy Spirit. He added that this supernatural experience “scared him:” “Three times…I think we all go through that. I was filled with the Holy Ghost and it scared me. I didn’t want to go this deep…I want to party. It was a supernatural, once in this lifetime experience that I couldn’t completely understand at the time.” […] “I went to church with Robert Townsend and when it came time to come down to the altar I said, ‘You know this time, I’m just going to go down there and give it up and see what happens.’ I went in the prayer room and gave it up and …

Why is Instagram censoring Sean Feucht’s worship videos?

According to CBN, Sean Feucht, a worship leader associated with Bethel Music, recently shared several social media posts that Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are now censoring worship and praise videos. Apparently, Feucht was going to places where there has been rioting and then posting videos of praise and worship from these locations. And while these social media corporations allowed posts of actual rioting, somehow praise and worship songs was considered insensitive or harmful and removed. Feucht tweeted: While @Facebook @instagram @Twitter promote the content of violence, rioting & destruction, they are actively CENSORING worship, prayer, peaceful protest & anything going against their fear-mongering narrative. My feed and many others is proof.#ChangeTheNarrative — Sean Feucht (@seanfeucht) June 23, 2020 Feucht reports that Instagram justified the removal of his praise and worship videos because they were classified as “harmful” or containing “false information”: This is what we’ve come to in America!

Big Tech censorship? pic.twitter.com/I7s6HUfKH4 — Sean Feucht (@seanfeucht) June …

How a small, radical-left minority intimidates those holding Conservative views

If there was any group in society that I would broadly classify as anti-conservative, it would be those working in the arts and culture. You know artists, actors, musicians and the like. One only has to look at Hollywood to see the strident anti-conservative views espoused by several actors and actresses and you are left with the impression that most Hollywood elites are the same. But if the results of a survey conducted in England are any indication, this first impressions might be deceiving as it exposed the power and tyranny of a small minority of people who control the arts. ArtsProfessional (AP), an organization providing a news service for those in the arts, recently surveyed over 500 arts professionals in England and discovered that over 80% hide their Conservative views to avoid being attacked by their colleagues and those in the public. In other words, 20% of those in the arts have successfully intimidated the 80%. And you can be sure of one thing, that not all those in the 20% were actively silencing …

Justin Bieber sets a record with his recent faith-filled album

It was his first album in five years, but Justin Bieber’s latest album “Changes” has just set a record. The album with its many references to faith and God is now No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart and with that achievement, Justin Bieber became the youngest singer to have seven albums hit number one beating out the previous record holder Elvis Presley. In the first two days after its release on Valentine’s Day, the album sold the equivalent of 250,000 albums. Those numbers are expected to climb dramatically when Bieber starts his tour. Billboard ranks albums based on several factors including purchases and streaming. Elvis had seven No. 1 albums before he was age 26, Bieber set that record at 25, since he will not turn 26 until March 1, 2020. In 2017, Justin cancelled the remainder of his Purpose tour and took time off to renew his faith in God working closely with pastors from Hillsong. During this time he also got water baptized, led worship services and married Haily Baldwin who …

God is changing Justin Bieber!

Canadian mega pop star, Justin Bieber, has just released his first album in five years. Called Changes, the music is filled with references to God and faith revealing the dramatic changes that have taken place in Justin’s life over the past few years. In his title song, he sings, “People change, circumstances change, but God always stays the same” and in another he says: “Thank you Jesus for your forgiveness.” Along with the release of a new album, Justin is planning a 45 city tour in 2020. In 2017, Justin’s fans were shocked when Bieber cancelled the last portion of his Purpose tour. He realized he needed to get out of the limelight, so he could grow in his faith in God and straighten out his life. During this sabbatical, we have read about Justin being water baptized and leading worship at a Hillsong church in Los Angeles.
