Holiday Surprises – POTUS Promises, Peace for Jerusalem, An American Princess, Tax Cuts, and Moore…

It’s December 2017, and Christmas bells are ringing again in America as President Trump’s promise keeping roll is continuing. The POTUS “we will say Merry Christmas again” mantra is resonating. Meanwhile, President Trump’s support for Israel, undergirded by our “prayers for the peace of Jerusalem,” is encouraging evidence that God is blessing us. POTUS is expected to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol today.

“Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.” Psalms 122:6 NLT

Of course, as is to be expected, “fake news” isn’t on holiday. This time media imps are trying to stir up a “feud” between newly engaged American actress Meghan Markle and her sister. Prince Harry has placed a “sparkle” on the “modern day Cinderella’s finger.” Up until now, Ms. Markle’s sister Samantha Grant has been sharing fond and sweet memories of Ms. Markle’s childhood. Now, those sweet dreams are becoming bitter, fanned by the ire seeking fake media. Ms. Markle’s ethnicity, evidence of the rising “One Blood/One Human Race sentiments sweeping the globe, adds spice to the conversation.

“No matter our skin color, we all bleed the same red blood…” President Donald John Trump

Let’s not miss out on the shameless fake news efforts to defame the much-needed tax cuts that are being ironed out in our Capitol. Families and businesses need a financial blessing this year!

As if all of this holiday intrigue wasn’t enough, the media sharks are still snapping at the heels of Senate candidate Roy Moore in Alabama. We can only imagine the magnitude of their frustration as the Judge keeps running ahead of the pack.

John 7:51 – “Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?

Finally, let’s consider that attempts at Agape Love can sometimes do more harm than good especially when cross-cultural situations without sufficient efforts to bring understanding of the local culture can cause resistance to change. At the end of the day, our goal should always be to Love, forgive and reconcile to our human brothers and sisters.

Enough for now. I’m off to Rome for work and maybe a little holiday cheer; with this song in my heart. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

More Prayers and Support for Israel

Last Sunday, I was invited by my good and refreshing friend Linda Dean to a reception for supporters of Israel. Linda is a faithful woman of God. I can’t thank her enough for remembering me.

I told Linda about my trip to Israel with Minister Victoria Hearst of Praise Him Ministries and Pastor John Peyton of Reconciliation Community Church. You can see that visit on Frontlines at

So you can imagine that I felt quite at home at the Israel reception in a lovely private Atlanta home. The special guests were Consul General Opher Aviran and the keynote speaker, Deputy Speaker of the Knesset Shlomo Molla M. K.

Can you imagine my joy at hearing the testimony of a man who was among the Ethiopian Jews returning to Israel in 1983? It was just heart stirring! There were two waves of the exodus back then: Much of the Beta Israel community returned home from Ethiopia to Israel during two tremendous waves of Diaspora mounted by the Israeli government – “Operation Moses” (1984) and during “Operation Solomon” (1991). Mr. Molla, Deputy Speaker of the Knesset was part of the first stages of Operation Moses.

As part of the delegation, he and his childhood friend experienced many trials as they crossed the desert and jungles to get to Israel. Upon their arrival, they were greeted by Sudanese gunfire, and his friend was killed. After being imprisoned for 91 days, the brave and courageous young Mr. Molla was released; and today he lives to lead his people and tell his remarkable story; available at
