Big revival in small town Kentucky

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. (Acts 3:19 NIV) While it is easy to be awestruck by mega churches which are typically defined as having over 2,000 people attending weekly services, God is not caught up in numbers but rather in matters of the heart. A revival has broken out in North Main Community Church, located in the small town of Barbourville in South Eastern Kentucky with a population of just 3,200. The church is pastored by Scott Phipps, 58, a former drug dealer in the town who turned to Christ shortly after his wife came home declaring she had become a Christian and was done with drugs. The revival, which has been going on for nearly three months, is impacting the small community as over 300 people have been saved during the meetings and over 150 drug addicts have been delivered. Scott told CBN that during the nightly services, they will have over 150 people who were …

US Energy Department report highlights huge cost of ending Keystone pipeline

One of the first things that President Joe Biden did when he took office in 2021 was to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline. According to a report by the US government’s Energy Department, that decision came at a great economic cost, Breitbart reports. The report entitled, Keystone XL Extension Permit Revocation: Energy Costs and Job Impacts, was released in December 2021. It stated that the decision cost between 16,149 to 59,468 jobs in the short term. The Keystone pipeline was expected to ship 830,000 barrels of Canadian crude oil to the US, and create 42,000 long-term jobs amounting to $2 billion in total wages. This was all squashed when President Biden recklessly revoked the permits of the project that was already halfway done, resulting in the stakeholders terminating the project.

God knows your name

Having someone mention your name indicates a level of familiarity, perhaps even friendship. And we understand from Scripture, that God not only knows us, but he knows our name. Perhaps the most famous involved the Apostle Paul, who while in his previous life was persecuting Christians, God called him by name as he was on the road to Damascus to arrest more Christians: “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” (Acts 9:4 NASV) Many have this perception, that God is indifferent to what is happening to us, but that is not true. God is personally interested in what is going on in your life. And Jo Hargreaves shared how similar to Paul, God called her by name, transforming her life. Hargreaves’ mother had divorced twice and this included a second marriage to a church vicar, that left a bad taste in Hargreaves mouth about Christianity. By the time she arrived at university, Hargreaves had abandoned any semblance of a Christian faith and started dabbling in paganism and even signed up with classes that pushed those …

Nancy Pelosi had Roman Catholic priests perform an exorcism at her home, daughter states

According to the daughter of former House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, her mother had Roman Catholic priests come into her home and perform an exorcism after Pelosi’s husband was seriously injured in an attack at their home on Oct 28, 2022, The Blaze reports. Nancy’s daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, made the admission in a recent interview with the New York Times, stating that the attack deeply impacted her mother. “I think that weighed really heavy on her soul. I think she felt really guilty. I think that really broke her,” Alexandra said in the interview. Nancy’s husband was severely injured in the attack after being hit with a hammer by an intruder in their home while police were standing only a few feet away. Roman Catholic exorcisms include blessings, prayers, and invocations found in an 84-page manual entitled Of Exorcisms and Certain Supplications. This can include such invocations as: Depart, then, transgressor. Depart, seducer, full of lies and cunning, foe of virtue, persecutor of the innocent. Give place, abominable creature, give way, you monster, give way to …

Woke Religion: What is your path?

I am probably the last person you would ask for relationship advice, but let me try: Always understand the other person’s religion. Religion, or the god that someone trusts could be money, personal success and fame, or power over other people. It is also possible to worship God. But, beyond a formal religion, what is the greatest success that anyone could achieve? What kind of thinking dominates a person’s life? What is your great success goal? What road is your life on? Are you obsessed with anything? That is religion, or faith; the great hope. The world is a very religious place; more than we know. For example, there is now a run on orange hockey jerseys with a number nine on them. They represent Ivan Provorov, a Russian player with the Philadelphia Fliers. The team had a special event when they celebrated “LGBTQ+ Pride Night” before a recent game. For the pre-game warm-up, players wore colorful jerseys and other equipment to show their support. Ivan Provorov did not wear the colorful equipment and did …

Elon Musk calls WEF, an ‘unelected world government’

If you are unaware, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is on the last day of its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Many believe the organization funded and founded by Klaus Schwab is pushing for world domination. Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner, recently condemned the WEF calling it an ‘unelected world government,” Fox News reports. “WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want,” Musk tweeted. The WEF’s annual meeting, held this year from January 16 to 20, attracts elites from areas of academia, politics, and business, and its founder Klaus Schwab has described the recent COVID pandemic as an opportunity for a great reset, and to make the world in Schwab’s image. That includes a program called Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), and Musk later tweeted the S actually stands for Satanic. READ: Musk rips World Economic Forum: ‘unelected world government’ So what does the WEF agenda include: Well, the WEF wants you to quit eating meat and start eating bugs. Don’t presume for one minute, this …

After brutal media attacks, Provorov’s jersey sells out at NHL online store

There has been a subtle shift in culture where a person can no longer remain neutral on certain issues, but must actively support them, or risk being called some type of ‘phobe’. Ivan Provorov, a defenceman for the Philadelphia Flyers, recently found himself being lambasted by the woke media and on social media for not donning a pride-themed jersey during warm-up prior to a game against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday, Fox News reports The Russian-born player sat out the warm-up stating that he didn’t feel comfortable doing it, choosing instead to stand with his convictions and religious beliefs. In an interview after the game, Provorov told reporters: “I respect everybody and I respect everybody’s choices. My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion. That’s all I’m going to say.” Provorov, who attends the Russian Orthodox Church, wasn’t being critical, he just couldn’t support it. But it seems a person can no longer remain neutral on these issues but must be seen actively supporting them or face the wrath of the woke …
